“You don’t need 30 rounds to hunt! But the 2nd Amendment was not written in case deer turn against us.”
On June 18th 2016, Barrack Hussein Obama once again proclaimed he would usurp the United States Constitution (1,180 transgressions to date) by pulling out of thin air another illegal and unconstitutional Executive Order in an attempt to further restrict Americans’ (God given) right to bear arms.
The Huffington Post Blogger’s Club feels that things are getting a little too close for their sinful comforts when it reported that the timing of the Orlando attack, combined with the demographic of the alleged victims, the demographic of the alleged gunman, and all the D.C. theatrics since the shooting, dovetail too well with the domestic and geopolitical agendas in Washington.
In fact, the group finds the timing of the Orlando shooting so suspect, that they’re offering $25,000 to anyone with substantial proof it was a false flag operation.
They say the Orlando shooting is simply perfect for at least six top priorities of the Obama regime:
- Repealing the Second Amendment;
2. Justifying Orwellian surveillance;
3. Emboldening the police state;
4. Fan hatred of Muslims;
5. Intervene on behalf of terrorists in Syria while pretending to fight them.
This is all coming from the administration that arms “terrorists” to do their biddings for them to pull down and overthrow governments internationally.
It was this administration that implemented “Fast and Furious,” which was responsible for putting weapons into the hands of Mexican drug lords who murdered over 300 Mexicans only to blame the American people for the crimes that Obama and his administration were responsible for.
Obama and his minions are the same people who are attempting to “brain wash” Americans through their use of lies and propaganda.
To counter the actions of this present day tyrant-dictator, let’s counter the lawlessness and misunderstandings as to why we, the militia, are an armed people. By the way, it has nothing to do with deer.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” -Amendment 2 of the Bill of Rights
“A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined…”
– George Washington, First Annual Address, to both House of Congress, January 8, 1790
“What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty …. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.” – Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, I Annals of Congress 750, August 17, 1789
“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country.”
– James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, June 8, 1789
“A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves… and include, according to the past and general usuage of the states, all men capable of bearing arms… “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
– Richard Henry Lee, Federal Farmer No. 18, January 25, 1788
These are the same men that continuously warned their posterity to:
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.” – Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778
“When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace.” -Luke 11:21
Finally, President Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to James Madison, the 4th President, on December 20, 1987 said,
“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”

After writing a lengthy suicide note exposing terrifying plans the government has for American citizens, an agent with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) directorate walked onto a New York City pier on the Hudson River and used his service weapon to shoot himself in his head.
Several sources from the New York City Police Department reported to New York’s SuperStation95 FM, and to the Conservative Base that the contents of a lengthy and detailed suicide note found on the departed’s body described a frightening scenario of a federal government gone mad, according to Sgt. Neal McCaffrey.
“Apparently this was not an impromptu or impulsive act of suicide, but a plot that was hatched at least a week ago. The CBP agent, who was assigned to deportations of illegal aliens or legal aliens being kicked out of the U.S., was written in separate parts over at least seven days,” said McCaffrey who is assigned to city’s Human Services Police Division.
The note outlines why the officer chose to shoot himself: “The America I grew up in, and cherished, has been murdered by its own federal government. Our Constitution has become meaningless and our laws politicized so badly, they are no longer enforced except for political purposes” the note said. “Our elected officials are, to a person, utterly corrupt and completely devoid of any love or respect for the country which pays them. To them, everything is about getting and keeping power, and making illicit money from backroom deals.”
According to investigating homicide detectives, the 42-year-old U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation officer — who hasn’t yet been identified — shot himself with his own .40 caliber semiautomatic service weapon while on Pier 40 in Hudson River Park at around 11 am (et) on Friday the 13th.
“There’s no indication that the May 13 date of the suicide had any significant meaning to the perpetrator/victim who worked at the Homeland Security Department’s offices in Manhattan,” said Police Officer Iris Aquino (NYPD-Ret.) who worked in Queens, New York.
The suicide victim was rushed to Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital but doctors were never able to revive him. His superiors at ICE released an official statement Friday afternoon: “Tragically, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officer from the New York field office suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound and has passed away. The agency is not releasing further details pending notification of the officer’s next of kin.”
According to the suicide note, the officer said: “I was hired to enforce the law; to capture and deport people who come to this country against our laws. But now, if I dare to do that, I face being suspended or fired because our President refuses to faithfully execute the duties of his office. Instead, I come to work each day, and collect a paycheck twice a month, for intentionally doing little to nothing. I cannot and will not be a party to this fraud; to this usurpation of the law, or to the despicable politicians betraying our nation.”
ICE is conducting an internal investigation of the matter but the New York Police Department is in charge of the suicide shooting investigation.
Agent Mentions FEMA Camps for Americans
In the suicide note, the federal agent described horrifying plans the upper-echelon federal officials have been formulating:
“If the American people knew what this government is planning, they would rise-up and overthrow it. If I or anyone else in the federal government revealed what is coming, we would be killed anyway, so now I will reveal what I know.
“We in federal law enforcement have been drilling for several years to control riots and uprisings from a coming financial collapse and widespread bank failures. The drills involve life-sized images of American men, even women and children, whom we are told to shoot for “practice” and to “get used to it.”
“We have been told that the economy is terminally ill and will fail in 2016. We are also told the banks are all insolvent and the FDIC doesn’t have nearly enough funds to bail out depositors. We are told these events are unavoidable and it is imperative that the government survive when people rise-up over this.
“When the collapse takes place, detention camps created under the FEMA REX-84 program in the 1980’s to house illegal aliens whom we were going to deport, will instead be used to imprison American Citizens whom the government feels constitute a “threat.” American citizens will be rounded-up without warrants and imprisoned without trial for God knows how long.
“These camps have been equipped to carry out Hitler-scale killings! An actual “purge” of Americans citizens by the very government which they, themselves, created and pay for! I cannot be party to this.”
The bizarre suicide note also describes how the plan calls for state-level national guard soldiers to be disarmed by the feds and over 1-billion rounds of ammunition purchased by the feds, and the Military over-deployed and being shrunk:
“The government knows the military will rise-up to stop this, so our military is being deployed overseas, intentionally involved in foreign wars, and deliberately shrunk in size so they cannot be here or help Americans! This is why certain ammunition and weaponry has been removed from state-level National Guard Armories and over a Billion rounds of hollow point ammunition has been bought by the federal government. The states themselves have been disarmed of military-grade firepower so they cannot defend themselves from the federal activities. This is also why local police departments have been militarized and provided with armored vehicles and weapons of war.
“When the inevitable collapse begins to take place, electric power to the entire country will be shut off, as will all forms of communication. All banks will be immediately closed; no one will be able to get any money because all ATM’s will be offline. Credit, Debit and EBT cards will not function. Anyone without cash will have no way to get any. The Emergency Alert System will be used to takeover all broadcast stations and tell the public this is a result of a cyber attack.
“But while the American people patiently await things to get back to normal, the government will unleash round-ups of citizens they deem militants or dangerous. With all civilian communications out, and all TV and radio stations taken over by the Emergency Alert System, by the time word spreads of what is taking place, the government will already have the upper hand.”
Federal prisoners to be gassed
“Every federal prison has been outfitted with lethal gas systems. When things go bad, all prisoners in all prisons will be placed in their cells on lock-down. Prison staff will depart the facility, and a certain designated person will trigger a lethal gas system. All federal prisoners, regardless of their crime or their sentence, will be gassed to death in their cells. Once the gas clears, the dead will be removed and the prisons will then be used to house citizens who fight against the federal onslaught.”
Pastors recruited to calm the people to submit
“So intent is the government to succeed they have recruited priests, rabbis and clerics from various religions to quote Scripture about “obeying government.” They are being trained to tell people not to fight back and that their best hope is to pray.”
The suicide note goes to great lengths about Executive Order #13603 signed by President Obama on March 16, 2012. That note details:
Executive order 13603 about “National Defense Resources Preparedness.”
This 10-page document is a blueprint for a federal takeover of the economy. Specifically, Obama’s plan involves seizing control of:
- “All commodities and products that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals”
• “All forms of energy”
• “All forms of civil transportation”
• “All usable water from all sources”
• “Health resources – drugs, biological products, medical devices, materials, facilities, health supplies, services and equipment”
• “Forced labor ( or “induction” as the executive order delicately refers to military conscription)
Moreover, federal officials would “issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources.”
SuperStation95 took a look at this Executive Order from the Government Printing Office (GPO) web site and, sure enough, everything contained in the Officer’s suicide note about this Executive Order is true. Executive order 13603 says with ominous ambiguity: during “the full spectrum of emergencies.”
“If the dead Officer’s claims about an unavoidable economic and banking collapse are true, would it then follow that the Executive Order put in place by Obama, might be activated? Would all of us find ourselves in forced labor, while the government takes OUR food and re-distributes it under the Executive Order’s paragraph about “allocating resources?” This is terrifying stuff!
“There is much more to the suicide note and SuperStation95 is considering how much more to publish. As such, this is a developing story and readers should check back for further updates,” according to the radio station’s newsroom.

For radio interviews regarding this article:
I was going to publish an apology for yesterdays rant, but now I will once again warn every reader that your false confidence in the government will get you murdered, one way or another the Banking Cartel that owns us is going to dismantle governments world wide and establish a world Authority that controls all Nations and it appears that America will be the first so as to destabilize the rest of humanity and their local governments. You can deny all this till hell freezes over but the evidence is explicit and available to all who will look and learn. We all have been beguiled from the get go and I know it is a miserable experience to love your country and kill innocent people for it only to discover we have been lied to from birth. These incredibly evil Bankers have been working non stop for this for over a hundred years and it is time for every American to wake up and get prepared. The police will show no mercy because they believe they will be protected as long as they are loyal & obedient. After all they have families and want them to survive. Most of you have no earthly idea how merciless warriors can be.

As things are right now in America, there is nothing dumber than a person who will absolutely refuse to read anything that will remotely upset them. They do not want to have their emotional opinion of America debased, or have a reason to stop worshiping their scumbag politicians. They are still in the second grade intellectually when it comes to loyalty to the flag, and the ILLEGAL GOVERNMENT. They still believe God will right all wrongs, and ignore what the Holy Scriptures say. Most Christians believe it is a lack of faith to protect their own family and self from the government. It is an insult to God!
Well let me tell you squirrel brain idiots something, you are going to revert to an animal when you and your children are starving and you have no weapons to protect your wife and children from being raped, sodomized, and tortured before your eyes. Everything you possessed is now gone and your biggest concern is your money went first; followed by no electricity, gasoline, heat and air conditioning, food, ammo, and guns, all gone in a matter of a few days.
People you formerly loved will beat you to death for a piece of bread. And you are too stupid to believe it’s possible, in spite of the provable history of nations, war, murders, and loss of property. You will crawl on your belly and beg for mercy when there is none. You will watch your family be roasted and eaten by the lowest animals on two legs, and they will be laughing at your cowardice.
WAKE THE FUCK UP ASSHOLES
Your dream world just puked on everything you worshipped, and now there is no choice but to fight back until your legs are cut off and your bowls are spraying you with putrid excrement. Your last thought will probably be a vision of some young solider risking his life to drag your miserable ass to safety! That’s how stupid it is to ignore what is and will be, just because you are too chickenshit to learn and prepare. You just can’t stand for the lie to be proven; your government was the pukes that installed the Banking Cartels plan for a world government under their control. And you are expendable. Don’t think they will be merciful and keep you around to wipe their royal asses. Learn or burn!

OLDDOGS COMMENTS: Please forgive my tardy posting as I am recovering from my Dear Wife’s “HONEY DO” project yesterday. It involved working on my knees all day to re-caulk the fish pond waterfall I built in 2004 while recovering from Rotator cuff and bone spurs surgery.
TRUMP AND THE MILITIA
By Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.
May 17, 2016
Please understand that I am not a “tub-thumper”, an enthusiast, or an apologist for Donald Trump. But his electrifying emergence on the scene represents a sea-change in American politics far more consequential than his own pyrotechnic personality, bold campaign-style, and receipt of popular acclaim suggest. He is, as it were, the surfer who—perhaps by accident, perhaps by insight, but in any event in a timely fashion—has caught the first of the really big waves rolling towards shore. The significant aspect of the present situation is not the surfer, however, but the wave: namely, the upsurge of popular disgust for the “two”-party political vessel in which this country is sailing on a collision-course into the rocks of despair. This first big wave threatens all of the ships riding at anchor in the Establishment’s harbor. So the Establishment needs to throw up a breakwater, in a manner both fast and furious.
As anyone with 20-20 political vision can see, America’s domestic enemies have taken off their velvet gloves to reveal the iron fists underneath, by employing against Trump directly, and America ultimately, the modern Bolshevistic strategy of socio-political destabilization through so-called “non-violent direct action”, “weathermen” tactics, and “color revolutions”—all in line with the old Leninist/Stalinist slogan, “there are no fortresses which Bolsheviks cannot storm”. Please refrain from chiding me that the contemporary Establishment is not, to one degree or another, made up largely of Bolsheviks. The opposite is obviously true. Some are retreaded Trotskyites (who call themselves “neoconservatives”). Others are watered-down Mensheviks (who call themselves “social democrats” or “moderate socialists”).
Others are the equivalent of NEP-men (better known here as “corporate socialists”, because they rely on governmental intervention in the economy to guarantee profits for themselves, while offloading losses onto the backs of the general public). And all of them are doctrinaire Leninists, inasmuch as they subscribe to his notion that “[t]he scientific term ‘dictatorship’ means nothing more nor less than authority untrammeled by any laws, absolutely unrestricted by any rules whatever, and based directly on force”. Vladimir I. Lenin, “A Contribution to the History of the Question of the Dictatorship, A Note” , in Collected Works (Moscow, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: Progress Publishers, 4th English Edition, 1966), Volume 31, at 353. None of these people gives a tinker’s dam for the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution—indeed, they believe themselves to be “untrammeled by any laws”. And all of them enthusiastically promote the present-day global “war on terrorism”, under color of which a para-militarized police-state apparatus, “absolutely unrestricted by any rules whatever, and based directly on force”, is being built up within this country in order to wage a domestic “war of terrorism” against the American people. See my book By Tyranny Out of Necessity: The Bastardy of “Martial Law” for the particulars on this.
If I may base my appreciation of the present situation upon an historical parallel drawn from Germany’s dolorous experience under the Weimar government in the 1920s and 1930s (which is probably familiar to most readers of this commentary), the advent of these bare-knuckled mass assaults on this country amounts to our own home-grown Bolsheviks’ declaration of ein Kampf um die Macht auf Leben und Tod (a struggle for power to the death). They will employ their Rotfrontkämpferbund (Red Front fighters’ league) to try to derail Trump’s nomination, through die Herrschaft des Pöbels auf der Straße (mobocracy in the street). If he is nominated, they will use der Bund to try to deny him election. If he is elected notwithstanding all of their efforts before November, they will then turn der Bund loose to stifle any major reforms which he attempts to put through after his inauguration, whether with or especially without Congress, the Judiciary, and the bureaucracy behind him. And please spare me the innuendo that, by drawing upon this parallel, I am somehow suggesting that Trump is a modern American “Hitler” figure. Rather, my intuition tells me that Trump is the sort of individual, perhaps rough-hewn but basically honest, who might have saved Germany from Hitlerism, as well as from Bolshevism, had the good Germans who came forward in der Wiederstand (the resistance-movement) after 1933 been more prescient and better organized before then.
One may ask why America’s Bolsheviks have decided to come out of the closet to exhibit their true coloration by unleashing mobocracy in the street, when they can (and surely will) employ every kind of old-fashioned fraud familiar in American politics to steal the election. The answer is that they anticipate their inability to put into practice Stalin’s apperçu that who votes is less important than who counts the votes, and are prudently preparing for the worst possible eventuality—namely, that in these unsettled times even widespread electoral fraud may not deprive Trump of victory if the polling-places are inundated by a true “revolt of the masses”. Moreover, even the most effective techniques of electoral fraud will be useless after the election. No further elections of consequence will be held during the first two years in which Trump holds “the Office of President”. If he cannot be stifled during that period, perhaps “the Trump phenomenon” will prove its worth in successful Presidential actions, and then will demonstrate its longevity and strength in the next elections—with the Bolsheviks suffering defeat after defeat. Between elections, the Bolsheviks will not be able to rely exclusively upon their co-conspirators, fellow travelers, dupes, useful idiots, and assorted fools in Congress, the Judiciary, and the bureaucracy to stand up to Trump. For the righteous anger of legions of patriotic Americans lined up behind him will give all of them pause. To put iron in their cronies’ backbones, the Bolsheviks will need to provide them with muscle in the streets: namely, hordes of well-funded, well-drilled “protesters” and “dissenters” deployed to shout down, or violently shut down, every popular manifestation of support for Trump.
So, as President, Trump—and all of the patriotic Americans in his camp—will desperately need the Militia:
(i) to awaken, energize, authorize, mobilize, organize, equip, train, and deploy on his behalf those whom the Declaration of Independence styles “the good People”;
(ii) to protect Trump himself—because no part of the present governmental apparatus at any level of the federal system can be trusted to do so;
(iii) to put through fundamental reforms that can be accomplished by the President alone (“to execute the Laws of the Union”, including both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, perforce of Article I, § 8, cl. 15 and such statutes as 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f); 10 U.S.C. §§ 332 and 333; and 18 U.S.C. §§ 241 and 242), in particular against entrenched, recalcitrant, hostile, and disloyal bureaucrats and subversive private factions and other NGOs and special-interest groups; and especially
(iv) to leave puissant governmental institutions for “the good People” to use on their own at the State and Local levels in the event of an unavoidable and utterly destabilizing national crisis, probably centered in banking and haute finance, which breaks out during his Presidency.
With respect to points (ii) and (iii) in particular, one might recall the wisdom of General William Tecumseh Sherman who, when importuned to make himself a candidate for the White House, replied that “I would account myself a fool, a madman, an ass, to embark anew, at sixty-five years of age, in a career that may, at any moment, become tempest-tossed by the perfidy, the defalcation, the dishonesty or neglect of any of a hundred thousand subordinates utterly unknown to the President of the United States.” Quoted in Burke Davis, Sherman’s March (New York, New York: Vantage Books, 1988), at 298. So, if Trump intends to embark upon such a dangerous “career”, he must confront the risk of disloyal “subordinates utterly unknown to the President”, in terms of their identities, their subversive agenda, and their actual misdeeds. This problem can be solved only through mobilization of the Militia—for example, through the “execution of [certain of] the Laws of the Union” (say, 10 U.S.C. §§ 332 and 333 coupled with 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001, 1505, 1512, 1513, 1515, and 2071) for the purpose of airing all of the dirty linen which the bureaucracy has been hiding, from the extent of the CIA’s infiltration of and covert influence over other civilian governmental agencies, the Armed Forces, and private concerns, to the truth concerning the assassinations of JFK, the Waco massacre, the events surrounding 9/11, the origin and promotion of ISIS (and allied “radical Moslem” organizations), and so on and on and on.
Inasmuch as der Rotfrontkämpferbund is now being brazenly deployed, a counterrevolutionary “white” force must be mobilized to oppose and defeat it. If loyal Americans want to avoid witnessing the rise of some extreme “right-wing” (actually, “right-socialistic”) “brown” force such as die Sturmabteilung (by default the main counterweight to the Communist street-gangs in Weimar Germany during her time of troubles)—which many desperate Americans will demand, and not a few will surely join, if they are offered no other powerful alternative—something else must be provided for them. This force must be raised from among “the good People”, there being no other source with the necessary loyalty, legal authority, self-interest, and sheer numbers requisite for the task at hand. Especially, it must be a force with explicit and unequivocal authority under the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, an establishment within the government, not a force the provenance of which can be traced only to some private political party, movement, or group.
Therefore, if Trump actually intends to be a constitutional “Commander in Chief” in the fullest sense in both law and fact—and, Heaven knows, if he does not intend as much then he should emulate General Sherman by not seeking “the Office of President” at all—he needs to promote the exercise of that high authority against America’s domestic enemies, through exhortation for and mobilization of what the Constitution itself declares to be uniquely “necessary to the security of a free State”, and to which it explicitly assigns the authority and responsibility “to execute the Laws of the Union”—and he must do this, in both words and deeds, immediately if not sooner. This is no time to play for time; for, as the old saying has it, time brings all things, bad as well as good. During his campaign, he must advocate revitalization of the Militia; and, after his election, he must take every action necessary and proper to that end. I suspect that, if he does grasp that nettle, he will be able to say of the contemporary Establishment what General Sherman said of the old Confederacy: “pierce the shell, and it’s all hollow inside”.
On the other hand, if—Heaven forfend!—Hillary Clinton should seize “the Office of President”, either by her own devices or (more likely) with the aid of anti-Trump back-stabbers in the Republican Party or some third-party “spoiler” candidate (from such as the Libertarian Party, which disastrously split the conservative vote in favor of a dyed-in-the-wool Clintonite in the last gubernatorial election in Virginia), she and the Bolsheviks behind her will not sit on their hands. Instead, emboldened by their triumph in scotching Trump, they will turn out der Rotfrontkämpferbund to advance their revolutionary agenda by deploying das Faustrecht (mob rule by the fist) against all of the “constitutionalist”, “patriotic”, “conservative”, “traditionalist”, and other politically, economically, and culturally “right-wing” groups in the country: First, to intimidate them and anyone who even tangentially supports them. Second, to turn the undecided citizenry against them when they try to defend themselves (denouncing even their verbal self-defense as “incitement to violence”). And third, to unleash para-militarized police-state oppression, some species of “martial law” jury-rigged under color of “emergency powers”, Vyshinsky-type prosecutors, and the kangaroo courts to suppress whichever Americans try to stand up for their natural and constitutional rights. This, the Bolsheviks will expect, will bring about die Endlösung (the final solution) of the problems of popular sovereignty and popular self-government which so vex all totalitarians.
The even more ominous problem is that, one way or another, during a Hillary Clinton Presidency America will surely be subjected to Bolshevism running amok. In the event, say, of a sudden catastrophic collapse of the monetary and banking systems—leading to hyperinflation, a depression, or (most likely) the one followed by the other—Hillary will not allow herself to become a latter-day Herbert Hoover. Instead, she will strike out wildly at everyone whom she will perceive as an “enemy”. Her incompetence being exceeded only by her arrogance, ambition, avarice, and appetite for the exercise of abusive authority, she will immediately invoke “emergency powers”, and especially some version of “martial law”. The entire world is already aware of her homicidal extremism, in the epitaph for Gaddafi which she cackled after the Libyan affair: “We came, we saw, he died!” Undoubtedly, she will display that same barbaric attitude here—unless WE THE PEOPLE will be ready, willing, and able to invoke Nancy Reagan’s dictum: “Just say no!” The effectiveness of most laws requires that most of the citizenry are willing to obey them without demur. If the run of common Americans will come to realize that “emergency powers” are bunkum, that “martial law” is bunkum to the second power, and that no one but THE PEOPLE themselves can maintain “the security of a free State”, in the manner which the Constitution mandates, Hillary will find herself a tin-pot dictatrix without the ability to dictate, because she will be without subjects willing to acquiesce in her dictation. When that time comes, however, THE PEOPLE will have to know what their rights, duties and powers are—and what her powers (the powers of any President, for that matter) are not. Between now and then, they will have a lot to learn, and not much time in which to learn it.
Be forewarned. One need not be a dabbler in the occult to foretell the future in this respect. Neither need one be much of a student of modern history to fear the accuracy in these times of the old adages that “no one learns anything from history other than that no one ever learns anything from history”, and that “we grow too soon old and too late smart”. (Personally, too, I appreciate the wisdom of the observation that “no man is ever taken for a prophet in his own country”. For I have long been struggling to educate Americans about the Militia—and, most recently, about the utter illegality of “martial law”—with about as much success as if I had been trying to sell a twelve-step program in humility and reticence to the Kardashians.)
Nonetheless, I believe that Mao Tse-tung was correct (albeit perhaps only accidentally or hypocritically so) when he wrote that “[t]he people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history”, that “[t]he masses have boundless creative power”, and that
[a]ll reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying, but in reality they are not so powerful. From a long-term point of view, it is not the reactionaries but the people who are really powerful.
Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung (Peking, China: Foreign Languages Press, 1966), at 118, 118, and 72. Thus, to turn the Bolsheviks’ own slogan to the purpose of America’s salvation: “There are no fortresses which ‘the good People’ cannot storm.”
In the final analysis, it is critically important that Trump should turn to “the good People”, trust “the good People”, empower “the good People”, and rely upon “the good People”. Not only for his own sake (which in the great scheme of things amounts to little), but also for their sake first and foremost (which amounts to everything). As modern Presidential campaigns illustrate, this country is steeped in its own bastard version of das Führerprinzip (the leader principle). As early as 1933, America had her “Chief” (Roosevelt), just as Germany had her Führer (Hitler), Italy her Duce (Mussolini), and Russia her Vozhd’ (Stalin), to be followed not long afterwards by Red China with her “Great Helmsman” (Mao). Today, all too many Americans view a President as someone whose purpose is to advance the agenda of their political party or special-interest group, not someone who should act unselfishly with and through WE THE PEOPLE so that THE PEOPLE themselves can become permanently the masters of their own destiny. Such approval of, or at least acquiescence in, rule from “the top down” must in short order prove fatal to popular self-government.In principle, it denies the precept of the Declaration that “Governments * * * instituted among Men[ ] deriv[e] their just powers from the consent of the governed”—not from acceptance by “the governed” of “the leader’s” mere assertions of authority. In practice, it generates increasingly uncritical support for “the leader’s” program, then increasingly blind obedience to his dictates. Until society arrives at the terminal stage of suicidal political regimentation: Führer befehl, wir folgen (leader command, we follow).
Just as the strength of any pyramid resides at its base, not at its apex, so, too, with popular sovereignty—and with the Power of the Sword in WE THE PEOPLE’S hands for the purpose of “execut[ing] the Laws of the Union” through the Militia. In a constitutional republic, true authority and legitimate power never descend from “the top down”, but always arise—indeed, can be generated and exercised only—from “the bottom up”. Trump’s greatest achievement (were he capable of any truly great achievement) would be to put this truth into action. By one segment of the population he will be damned if he does; and, by another segment, damned if he does not; so he may as well be taken for a goat rather than a sheep. That goes for the rest of us, too.

http://nesaranews.blogspot.com/2013/10/open-letter-from-we-people.html To the following:
US Military, Pentagon Joint Chiefs, Flag Officers, Provost Marshall, Inspector General, and Office of Management & Budget, US Corporation and its Agents & Actors–an act of giving Public Notice.
We THE People who are the Civilian Authority with the superior lawfull standing over the U.S. Corporation=UNITED STATES CORPORATION and authority over the U.S. Military acting under the Original Jurisdiction of the United States Constitution 1789, Bill of Rights 1791 with the original 13th Amendment=”which removes persons who have accepted an entitlement from holding public office” as the United States of America, Republic form of Government, De Jure, standing as the true form of Government is proud to announce and notice the following effective IMMEDIATELY.
The purpose of this writing is to add the next pieces to the graphical explanation of the relationships between the US Corporation to Straw man and to Us – the living breathing men and women who occupy the geographical lands of the De Jure Constitutional Government for the United States of America.
We want to know that our boarders are watched and we are protected when we come and go either on pleasure or business. We want to make sure we have a roof over our head, good food not GMO to eat, and the people who represent us at State and Federal levels are looking out for us and not their personal pocket books.
So we want to disconnect ourselves from the US Corporation both personally, State and Federal wise. So the questions are many and what should we be aware of to disconnect.
On March 27, 1861, seven (7) southern states walked out of the Union along with several of the northern states under ”Sine Die” breaking the contract between the Federation and Union States. The states seceding from the Union were South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas.
This event caused the contract which consisted of the Articles of Confederation, the Organic Constitution of 1789 and the Bill of Rights of 1791 to be breached.
Upon breaking this contract, the following happened: The Union of States relationship was suspended and the United States of America was suspended in its existence.
Article I – Legislation was suspended; Under Parliament Congress, Congress ceased to exist as a lawful body and all lawful Republic governmental Seats were vacant*
Article II – Executive branch was suspended; Office of President was suspended – Office of the President was vacant* (President had no authority to declare war). At this point, the then sitting President had no power, no authority, his position as president was suspended and considered vacant by the De Jure Republic Constitutional Government.
Article III – Judicial Courts were suspended; Article III Judicial seats are vacated.*
* = per Administrative Court Judge in a North Carolina case FILE NO. : 11 CVS 1559
On April 15, 1861, President Lincoln executed the first executive order written by any President, Executive Order 1, Executive Orders are not constitutional however it is perceived as law by the use of television propagating the deception. This is not correct; an Executive Order is the memo method of communicating between departments of a corporation and is not the law of the land.
When Congress eventually did reconvene, it was reconvened under the military authority of the Commander-in-Chief and not by Rules of Order for Parliamentary bodies or by Constitutional Law; placing the American people under martial rule ever since that national emergency declared by President Lincoln.
The Constitution for the United States of America temporarily ceased to be the law of the land, and the President, Congress, and the Courts unlawfully presumed that they were free to remake the national government in their own fashion, whereas, lawfully, no constitutional provisions were in place which afforded power or authority to enact any of the actions which were taken which presumed to place the nation under the new form of federal government control.
On April 17, 1861 and over the next five (5) weeks – seceding from the Union were the additional states of Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Arkansas totaling eleven (11) confederate states.
In 1862, the unlawful congress redefined the word Person as a legal term of art, creating a fictional entity, fictional characterization, Straw man, corporate entity. Definition: Person = Fictional Characterization which allowed the unlawful congress to say “that you can create, you can control”.
In 1864, the unlawfull congress redefining the word STATE to be District of Columbia. They are setting a pattern for “that you can create, you can control”. In Webster’s dictionary 1828, the definition for Columbia as a noun is America; the United States; a poetical appellation given in honor of Columbus, the discoverer.
Furthermore, the definition used today in US Corporation speeches, law, statutes, Court System for Person = Fictional Characterization and STATE= District of Columbia are hereby repealed, revoked and terminated because these words were redefined by an Unconstitutional congress to be used to entrap the living, breathing flesh and blood man or woman into debt slavery by the 14th amendment. This is spoken by the We THE People of the De Jure Constitutional Government for the United States of America.
The definition for Person and for State as per Webster dictionary 1828:
PERSON, noun per’sn. [Latin persona; said to be compounded of per, through or by, and sonus, sound; a Latin word signifying primarily a mask used by actors on the state.] 1. An individual human being consisting of body and soul. We apply the word to living beings only, possessed of a rational nature; the body when dead is not called a person, It is applied alike to a man, woman or child. A person is a thinking intelligent being: verb transitive, To represent as a person; to make to resemble; to image. [Not in use.]
STATE, noun [Latin, to stand, to be fixed.] 1. Condition; the circumstances of a being or thing at any given time. These circumstances may be internal, constitutional or peculiar to the being, or they may have relation to other beings. We say, the body is in a sound state or it is in a weak state; or it has just recovered from a feeble state, The state of his health is good. The state of his mind is favorable for study. So we say, the state of public affairs calls for the exercise of talents and wisdom. In regard to foreign nations, our affairs are in a good state, So we say, single state and married state. Declare the past and present state of things.
STATE, verb transitive, 1. To set; to settle. [See Stated.] 2. To express the particulars of any thing verbally; to represent fully in words; to narrate; to recite. The witnesses stated all the circumstances of the transaction. They are enjoined to state all the particulars. It is the business of the advocate to state the whole case. Let the question be fairly stated.
As we continue with the for mentioned timeline, The US Corporation continues to attack the vacant seats of the De Jure Constitutional Government, its people and the lands by writing Executive Orders, Acts and Treaties created by the US Corporation that starts with the “Act of 1871.”, Creating the District of Columbia and defining it as a state while the Union States are redefined as territories under the District of Columbia, the “Pan American treaty of 12-26-1933 (49STAT3097) Treaty Series 881”, and the “International Organization Immunities Act of 12-9-1945,” since all of these ACT’s and Treaty references were created by an Unconstitutional government. We THE People are not obligated nor bound by these unconstitutional instruments.
That the Pan American treaty of 12-26-1933 (49 STAT 3097) Treaty Series 881 – (Convention on Rights and Duties of States) stated CONGRESS replaced STATUTES with international law, placing all states under international law.
That the International Organization Immunities Act of 12-9-1945 – – Congress relinquished every public office over to the UN. Local governments up to the president fall under UN jurisdiction. Congress gave the UN the right to dictate what laws will be international & gave them the right to tax the States.
That the International Reorganization Rescind Act- Congress put this into form but they never took action to rescind the act. Fairly recently an Ohio judge filed suit claiming that Congress did not have the right to relinquish government authority over to the UN (a corporation or foreign country) and that the Congressional act was a constitutional violation because they didn’t put it to the States or the people to agree on it. In 2005 the US Supreme court declined to hear the case therefore all public offices are under UN jurisdiction & they are not American Citizens.
Furthermore, the action by the US Corporation has been Fraudulent in representation of the people of the United States of America as well as taking advantage of minors. The individuals who represent this corporation are not We THE Peoples’ government and these individuals are by lawful governing considered to be Corporate CONTRACTORS =ACTORS who do not represent the Political Will of the People. We THE People do hereby declare the US Corporation governs NOTHING since they are nothing more than an unlawful criminal organization. The US Corporation is physically bound to White House = CEO office and Capital Building = Board of Directors office on the land they call District of Columbia. They have NO authority over the people or lands of the United States of America or the District of Columbia.
Furthermore, all adhesion contracts are suspended and revoked due to the fraudulent actions by US Corporation and Banking industry against the living breathing flesh and blood men and women of the United States of America.
Adhesion contract examples (not a complete list):
Minor – certified birth certificate on bonded paper, Social Security Number, Driver License;
Adult – Marriage License, Voter Registration, License as Contractor, usage of Zip Code, USPS – FEMA green address plates for mailboxes, IRS – income filings signature binds a person to pay Unconstitutional taxes which is a fraudulent act since taxation repealed in 1939, taxation without representation and not disclosing taxation is voluntary;
Other – the autograph line on personal checks is micro-printed by Banking Industry further binding parties to debt; mortgages with no jurisdictional representation and much more.
Furthermore, the Bretton Woods Agreement Act with the association of the US Corporation with the CROWN = Rothschild Banking Cartel, the International Monetary Fund are foreign entities and Unconstitutional and are suspended and revoked by We THE People of the De Jure Constitutional Government for the United States of America.
- Bretton Woods Agreements Act, International Monetary Fund/World Bank Group [As Amended Through P.L. 112–74, Enacted December 23, 2011]
AN ACT To provide for the participation of the United States in the International Monetary Fund and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1, 22 U.S.C. 286 note, This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Bretton Woods Agreements Act’’.
ACCEPTANCE OF MEMBERSHIP
SEC. 2, 22 U.S.C. 286, The President is hereby authorized to accept membership for the United States in the International Monetary Fund (herein after referred to as the ‘‘Fund’’), and in the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (hereinafter referred to as the ‘‘Bank’’), provided for the Articles of Agreement of the Fund and the Articles of Agreement of the Bank as set forth in the Final Act of the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference dated July 22, 1944, and deposited in the archives of the Department of State.
APPOINTMENT OF GOVERNORS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS, AND ALTERNATES
SEC. 3.1, 22 U.S.C. 286a, (a) The President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint a governor of the Fund who shall also serve as governor of the Bank, and an executive director of the Fund and an executive director of the Bank. The executive directors so appointed shall also serve provisional executive directors of the Fund and the Bank for the purposes of the respective Articles of Agreement. The term of office for the governor of the Fund and of the Bank shall be five years. The term of office for the executive directors shall be two years, but the executive directors shall remain in office until their successors have been appointed. (b) The President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint an alternate for the governor of the fund and an alternate for the governor of the Bank. 2 The President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint an alternate for F:COMPIFIBRETTON. December 23, 2011.
Furthermore, the United Nations has been given direct orders to stand down and to leave the Republic State of New York and the entire geographical lands known as United States of America. No department of our government shall report to a foreign agency or foreign agent. United Nations failure to comply shows their intent to continue to carry forward the criminal Agenda 21 of mass murder of people in the United States of American and the World. It is the duty and obligation of the Military to remove these criminal power seekers from our lands.
We THE People now understand that we have been fooled, manipulated and coerced by fraudulent acts committed by Abraham Lincoln and the US Corporation through their adhesion contracts for their financial gains.
Furthermore, The POPE on July 11 and effective September 1, 2013 issued a APOSTOLIC LETTER ISSUED MOTU PROPRIO OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF FRANCIS ON THE JURISDICTION OF THE JUDICIAL AUTHORITIES OF VATICAN CITY STATE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS.
Pope Francis Apostolic Letter effectively stripped away the immunity of all judges, attorneys, government officials and all entities established under the Roman Curia. Since “All” corporations are established under the Roman Curia they have their immunity stripped away including their C level, Executive level, Office of General Council, and significant operational staff.
All of these “persons” can be held accountable for war crimes, crimes against humanity, for the unlawful restrictions of the liberties of the divine spirit incarnate; for failure to settle the accounts; for continued prosecution of claims already settled, etc. Definition: Divine Spirit is humanity.
Over the past several years, there has been a great and powerful movement by the patriots and others to take back our Unalienable rights, pronouns as UN-A-LIEN-ABLE or said Not-a-lien-able right. This means no one can take these from us as per the bible and our fore fathers. To stand up the republic once again and dissolve the US Corporation and rid ourselves of the banking cartels who direct the central banking wars for their profit.
On October 21st, 2012, a group of living breathing men and woman meet with a specific intent to reseat our Federal government. They did reseat our United States of America as a sovereign Nation once again. Along with that comes the re-instatement of the contract between Federal and Union States or Nation States. We THE People stand once again under the De Jure Constitutional Government, Republic form of Government which represents the People of this great land known as United States of America. The offices that have sat vacant since March 27 1861 are now being filled with men and woman from this nation.
By the Political Will of We THE People we hereby claim the following:
- Revocation of all the unconstitutional acts, treaties, proclamations, etc. since March 27 1861,
- The law of the land is Geneva & King James Bible, Common Law, Articles of Confederation, the Organic Constitution of 1789, the Bill of Rights of 1791 and Northwest Ordinance. These laws apply to all 50 Nation States.
- US Corporation is Confined to the geographical area called the District of Columbia, The US Corporation is physically bound to White House = CEO office and Capital Building = Board of Directors office.
- The US Corporation has NO authority over the people or lands of the United States of America and the people or land of the District of Columbia.
- Revocation of all adhesion contracts by US Corporation due to their fraudulent actions against the people.
- The IRS and Federal Reverse are associated with US Corporation and IMF which have no authority to operate on the lands of the United States of America.
- The De Jure Constitutional Government declares Martial law over the US Corporation and the land known as Washington DC. Washington DC will be patrolled by the United States Military and Militias of the states assigned to do so.
- We THE People will consider criminal charges against all the actors, agents and their supporting staff as far back as necessary …
It is the Political Will of We THE People~

I will not accuse Dave of being a scare monger, but I have a hard time believing everything he publishes. However this time he has raised a problem I have not formerly applied much importance on, and that is the number of foreign troops he expects to show up. This could be a real problem in a Nation too self centered to have demanded a contingent of State Militias. As it stands now with our dumbed down population, and lack of secure communications, a counter offensive is sure suicide, and only a handful of us will stand up and fight back. Not all of us are willing to die on our knees. Good luck America, you had a good run!
By Dave Hodges
This picture and depicts Russian soldiers at Ft. Carson. The Russians and other foreign troops (e.g. Germans, Canadians, Danes) are part of Jade Helm. They are here to carry out the mission should American troops stand down.
All world leaders, who are proxies for the New World Order know that their own individual military forces will not murder their own people in large enough numbers to make a difference with regard to citizen resistance to a nation’s fall into absolute tyranny.
The world is now witnessing the transfer of domestic military power to foreign entities and every citizen of every modern country in the world, should be extremely fearful. These foreign troops will have no compunction as to how many people that they will murder on the path to establishing a New World Order.
There are clear signs that the globalists are making their move to subjugate the entire G-20, and they are making that move, NOW.
The Bloodbath Will Commence with the Fall of the American Economy
Australia In Danger!
ABC News in Australia has announced that the Australian Government has just released a Multi- Billion Dollar Deal made with Singapore to House and Rotate 14,000 Singapore Soldiers. And of course, under the principle of incrementalism, it is only 14,000 troops today, but it could just as easily become 140,000 foreign troops tomorrow.
Under the agreement, that will bring combat troops from Singapore to Australia, the Australian people would fund the cost of expanding the Shoal water Bay Training Area and the Townsville Field Training Area, both in the north of Queensland state.
This is a move predicated towards the implementation of martial law and this also provides the foreign interlopers a permanent base of operations.
Many Australians have not surrendered their guns because many of them anticipated what was coming, namely, total economic collapse courtesy of the derivatives, and absolute gun confiscation which will be enforced with extreme prejudice. The Australian courts will not be involved in the coming martial law and ensuing gun confiscation activities. Foreign officers, in their field command capacity will be given the Carte Blanche authority to enforce gun confiscation to the letter of the law.
The Australian government has sold out their citizens and have set them up for foreign occupation the roll out a brutal martial law.
No Difference Between Australia and America
There is clear evidence that the foreign soldiers are going to be trained to take over the FEMA Camps and the question as to whether American forces would fire upon American citizens is a moot point.
Training Foreigners To Take Over the Camps
“This appendix addresses aspects of developing confinement officers in other countries. For the purposes of this appendix, the terms foreign and HN confinement officers are synonymous”.
Foreign Confinement Officer Training Program
Training U.S. Trainers
N-43. Soldiers and Marines who are assigned training missions receive a course of preparation to deal with the specific requirements of developing the target HN confinement officers (i.e. foreign detention officers). The course should emphasize the cultural background of the HN, introduce its language (to include specific confinement-related terms and phrases) and provide insights into cultural tips for developing a good rapport with HN personnel.
The beginning of this section attempts to create the illusion that foreign troops will be under the complete control of Army personnel. However, I believe it is likely that the mass exterminations of the detainees will take place when the American military is withdrawn from the facilities. If there was any doubt as to the fact that our soon-to-be jailers will be foreign and will have no hesitation to carry out mass genocide, the following regulation from the document should remove all doubt.
N-48. Training programs are designed to prepare HN personnel to eventually train themselves. Indigenous trainers are the best trainers and should be used to the maximum extent possible.
For nearly four years, I have interviewed numerous eyewitnesses on my talk show about the presence of foreign troops (mostly Russian) training on American soil. Sherrie Wilcox has presented videotape and still photo evidence. Others have provided their firsthand accounts of these events. I have detailed the existence of a FEMA bilateral agreement with the Russians to bring in 15,000 soldiers for “disaster training”. And despite all the evidence, there are people who have roundly criticized The Common Sense Show for accurately claiming there are foreign troops on American soil. Those who have refused to look at the evidence owe my people an apology. Second, the “bury their head in the sand crowd” ,will never know what will hit them when all hell breaks loose.
New World Order Forces Preparing to Counter American Military Forces Fighting a Guerrilla War
Australia, Singapore, or America, There Is No Difference As to What Is Coming
In the first week of February, I published several documents pertaining to UWEX 16, including the following advertisement for “role players” in this “drill”. The drill involves the following:
Does anyone else find it interesting that your government is practicing to fight rogue elements of the of the US military who are engaged in a guerrilla war?
Pulling Out the Stops
Mark Zuckerberg censoring Donald Trump.
Can Donald Trump save America and the world from global depression and martial law? Alex Jones weighs in on this topic.
Facebook has revealed that they have the ability and permission to block Trump posts. That by itself, may not mean much except to reveal Facebook’s position in the NWO. However, this action may be designed to assist Hillary.
The Hillary Factor
The Hillary Factor
“I support Australia’s system of gun control”
One of Clinton’s main campaign positions is predicated on imitating the Australian gun control model.
The fallacy of Australian Gun Control
Isn’t it curious that Clinton would like to have the same impact on American individual security as will the Singapore military in Australia?
The game plan is apparent. World leaders will cross-match their troops in attempt to subjugate each other’s citizens who would dare to resist such things as gun confiscation efforts. In the past, Obama has made it clear he has access to Russians, Chinese and now even Cubans. Hillary Clinton has exposed her hand as she has announced she will implement gun confiscation, Australian style. Further, FEMA camps will ultimately be manned by foreign soldiers. By the way, Singapore’s pilots train at Luke Air Force Base (Glendale, AZ.) on American F-16’s. Isn’t that interesting?
I would say that Trump has his hands full.

By Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.
May 7, 2016
I always approach each edition of the National Rifle Association’s magazine, American Rifleman, with some little trepidation, because of the disturbing content that all too often crops up in its editorials. The latest edition (May 2016) has once again proven that I am not merely a victim of intellectual paranoia.
In his regular column, “Standing Guard”, the NRA’s Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre, advises his readers that “When it Comes to Gun Rights, 2016 Election Is About the Court, Too”. The thrust of the column is Mr. LaPierre’s reiteration of the necessity for the NRA’s supporters to “elect a president who believes and will fight for the Second Amendment”, as well as to “elect a [Charles] Schumer-proof United States Senate and maintain the current Second Amendment majority”. As I have explained in an earlier NewsWithViews commentary entitled “NRA, Second Amendment, and ‘We the People’”, reliance on elections alone (even if they are conducted honestly) is an inadequate means to “fight for the Second Amendment”. For instance, no candidate for “the Office of President” who fails to champion revitalization of the Militia is actually “fight[ing] for the second Amendment” to the full extent the Constitution requires. After all, how can a candidate for that office expect to fulfill his constitutional authority and responsibility as “Commander in Chief * * * of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States”, when for all practical purposes “the Militia of the several States” are moribund throughout this country? Is not such a candidate’s “Job One” to correct that situation? The answer being obvious, I shall not rehash that matter here.
More disquieting in Mr. LaPierre’s column is his critique of certain statements made by the Justices who dissented from the Supreme Court’s decisions in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago—namely, Justices Stevens, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Ginsburg. To be sure, their pronouncements certainly warrant scathing criticism, if not raucous ridicule. Unfortunately, Mr. LaPierre’s rejoinders are not much less faulty—perhaps, are even more indefensible, coming as they do from an ostensible proponent of the Second Amendment. He is not so much “standing guard” over the Amendment, as standing down from that purpose.
- Mr. Lapierre quotes Justice Stevens in Heller as contending that:
The Second Amendment was adopted to protect the right of the people of each of the several States to maintain a well regulated militia … there is no indication that the Framers of the Amendment intended to enshrine the common-law right of self-defense in the Constitution.
Now, no one who reads all twenty-seven words of the Second Amendment—not just the last fourteen, which the NRA emphasizes to the virtual exclusion of the first thirteen (a mistake, curiously enough, which Justice Stevens did not make)—can doubt that Justice Stevens was perfectly correct (albeit, I suspect, only accidentally so) to assert that “[t]he Second Amendment was adopted to protect the right of the people of each of the several States to maintain a well regulated militia”. Nonetheless, he missed the essential point: that, if the people have a right “to maintain a well regulated militia” in each State, then there must actually be, in each State, “[a] well regulated Militia”, organized according to constitutional principles drawn from pre-constitutional American history, in which Militia “the people” as a whole actually participate. The “right of the people” thus imposes a corresponding duty, not only on each of “the several States”, but also on the General Government (primarily, through Congress), to ensure that such Militia are fully enrolled, organized, armed, disciplined, and governed at all times. That “right of the people” is also a duty of “the people” to serve in such Militia, because constitutional Militia are establishments with near-universal compulsory membership. They are the only organizations the Constitution recognizes which are based upon a general “draft”. Full support for these assertions can be found in my book Constitutional “Homeland Security”, Volume Two, The Sword and Sovereignty (Front Royal, Virginia: CD-ROM Edition, 2012), and therefore need not be repeated here.
What Justice Stevens did not understand (or refused to acknowledge) is that, as Article 13 of Virginia’s Declaration of Rights (1776) made clear, “a well regulated militia” is “composed of the body of the people, trained to arms”. That means that every able-bodied adult American (other than conscientious objectors) not only must be suitably armed as an individual, but also must be trained to use his arms effectively in a collective effort in aid of the community’s self-defense. Of course, the guarantee that each and every eligible individual always possesses arms suitable for some kind of Militia service will also ensure that such arms are available at all times for every such individual’s personal self-defense. So, pace Justice Stevens, by “protect[ing] the right of the people * * * to maintain * * * well regulated militia”, “the Framers” did indeed “enshrine the common-law right of self-defense in the Constitution”, for individuals acting as individuals in their own personal defense as well as for individuals acting collectively in defense of the community.
We know this with apodictic certainty because the very first constitutional authority and responsibility of the Militia is “to execute the Laws of the Union”, as well as the laws of their own States. And self-defense—whether exercised on behalf of the community as a whole or of a single individual—is the execution of the very highest of all human laws. As Sir William Blackstone (no mean student of the common law) explained with respect to the “defence of one’s self”:
the law * * * makes it lawful in [an individual] to do himself that immediate justice, to which he is prompted by nature, and which no prudential motives are strong enough to restrain. It considers that the future process of law is by no means an adequate remedy for injuries accompanied with force; since it is impossible to say, to what wanton lengths of rapine or cruelty outrages of this sort might be carried, unless it were permitted a man immediately to oppose one violence with another. Self-defense, therefore, as it is justly called the primary law of nature, so it is not, neither can it be in fact, taken away by the law of society.
Commentaries on the Laws of England (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Robert Bell, 1772), Volume 3, at 3-4.
Self-evidently, then, individual self-defense is, in fact and law, a microcosmic example of the macrocosmic right and duty of the Militia to execute “the primary law of nature” (and vice versa). This should be obvious, too, from the Second Amendment. For “the security of a free State” could hardly exist if individuals were unable to protect themselves, as individuals, from lone aggressors to the selfsame extent that they were able to protect themselves, as a community, from concerted attacks by large numbers of domestic or foreign aggressors (and vice versa). “A well regulated Militia” defends the community. The community, however, is composed of individuals. So, in defending the community, the members of the Militia are defending themselves as individuals, too. And even when an individual is simply defending himself against a single attacker in an isolated confrontation, he is also defending the community, because he is executing the very highest law of the community against the aggressor under circumstances in which no one else can come to his aid.
It is understandable that someone such as Justice Stevens could be hopelessly confused on this score. What, though, is to be said of Mr. LaPierre, who attacks Justice Stevens’ statement as “that arrogant defamation of liberty—utterly denigrating the individual right to keep and bear arms”. Is it conceivable that for Justice Stevens to link “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms” with the Militia is an “arrogant defamation of liberty”, when the Second Amendment itself identifies “[a] well regulated Militia” as “necessary to the security of a free State”? Do individuals in “a free State” not enjoy “liberty”? And, if they do (as is incontestably the case), is not “[a] well regulated Militia * * * necessary to the security” of their “liberty”? Or is the Constitution wrong on that point? One wonders whether Mr. LaPierre has ever pondered such questions.
- Mr. LaPierre then quotes Justice Breyer’s dissent in McDonald:
“[T]he Framers did not write the Second Amendment in order to protect a private right of armed self-defense.” And “By its terms, the Second Amendment does not apply to the States; read properly, it does not even apply to individuals outside of the militia context.”
Justice Breyer fumed. “After all, the Amendment’s militia-related purpose is primarily to protect the States from federal regulation, not to protect individuals.”
Of course, Mr. LaPierre is fully justified in treating these statements as rank gibberish—
First, as explained above, the Second Amendment certainly does “protect a private right of armed self-defense”. Can even Justice Breyer believe that a member of the Militia, required by law to possess a firearm in his own home at all times, does not enjoy a “private right” to employ that firearm for personal self-defense, in addition to his right and duty as a member of the Militia to execute the law against whoever attacks him?
Second, to what vanishingly small set of citizens does the Second Amendment not apply, because the constituent individuals are “outside of the Militia context”? “A well regulated Militia” includes all able-bodied adults from, typically, 16 years of age on up. Only individuals convicted of the most serious crimes, and those who (although otherwise able-bodied) suffer from some disabling mental disease or defect, are excluded. (Conscientious objectors are not required to possess firearms, but must perform some other Militia service.)
Third, the right—and duty—of “the people to keep and bear Arms” so as to be able to serve in “well regulated Militia” must apply first and foremost to and in their own States, because the Militia are “the Militia of the several States”, not “the Militia of the United States”. Do not the States themselves enjoy a right and labor under a duty to provide in their own territories what the Constitution declares to be “necessary to the security of a free State” everywhere without exception throughout the Union? Is their “security” as “free State[s]” to be left to the mercies of errant public officials in the General Government? What if insouciant, incompetent, or disloyal officials of that government fail, neglect, or refuse to provide the requisite measures of “security”? Must “free State[s]” then collapse throughout the United States, with no recourse in self-help?
To be sure, Congress labors under the constitutional duty “[t]o provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia” for the purposes of “execut[ing] the Laws of the Union, suppress[ing] Insurrections and repel[ling] Invasions”. But what has it done to date (actually, since 1903)? It has consigned almost all Americans to the constitutionally oxymoronic “unorganized militia”, leaving them unprepared to perform any Militia service in defense of either their communities or themselves as individuals. Were the right and duty of “the people” to serve in “well regulated Militia” fully enforced by the States, though, Congress’s default would not matter to a critical degree, because Militia properly “well regulated” by their own States would be prepared to fulfill all of the responsibilities “necessary to the security of a free State”, including the three the Constitution specifies.
Fourth, the General Government’s only regulatory authority in the premises is to organize, arm, discipline, and train the Militia, and to govern such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, for one or more of the three explicit constitutional purposes quoted above, and for nothing else. The Constitution authorizes no other regulation—and most emphatically no regulation which directly violates “the supreme Law of the Land” by purporting to “unorganize” or “disarm” the Militia. Furthermore, an unconstitutional regulation of the Militia which harms the States necessarily harms “the body of the people” who make up the Militia, and therefore harms the vast majority of the able-bodied adult individuals who make up society. So, pace Justice Breyer, if the Second Amendment provides any protection at all, it assuredly “protect[s] individuals”.
But if Justice Breyer is all wet, does Mr. Lapierre stand on drier ground? Does Mr. LaPierre imagine that “the people” have no right to require their own States to maintain the very—indeed, the only—institutions which the Constitution declares to be “necessary to the security of a free State”? Are the States to be suffered to behave as other than “free State[s]” by simply dispensing with their Militia? One would hope not. Yet is this not the terminus to which acceptance of “the individual right to keep and bear arms”, so precious to Mr. LaPierre, now leads this country?
- Mr. LaPierre then scoffs at what he calls Justice Stevens’ “off-the-wall dissent” in McDonald:
Stevens wrote, “[T]he experience of other advanced democracies, including those that share our British heritage, undercuts the notion that an expansive right to keep and bear arms is intrinsic to ordered liberty. …
“[I]t is silly—indeed, arrogant—to think we have nothing to learn from the billions of people beyond our borders.”
Mr. LaPierre rightly derides this claptrap.
The laws of foreign nations are both irrelevant and impertinent with respect to how America’s Constitution should be construed and applied. As to foreign nations in general, I have written a book to that effect. How To Dethrone the Imperial Judiciary (San Antonio, Texas: Vision Forum Ministries, 2004). As to Great Britain in particular, immediately pre-constitutional American history provides a veritable library, culminating in the record of General Gage’s attempt to impose “gun control” on the Colonists in Lexington and Concord in 1775—the event memorialized, for example, as part of “A Declaration by the Representatives of the United Colonies of North America, now met in General Congress at Philadelphia, setting forth the causes and necessity of their taking up arms” (Thursday, 6 July 1775), Journals of the Continental Congress, Volume 2, at 150-151. (In this regard, Mr. LaPierre would do well to recall that Americans resisted British tyranny on 19 April 1775, not by anarchic exercises of some imaginary “individual right to keep and bear arms”, but by turning out in a collective fashion as Local units of the Militia of Massachusetts.)
Pace Justice Stevens, Americans’ first task must be to learn, not from foreign sources but from their own Constitution, what “liberty” means—and especially what institutions and practices are required to preserve it. The most important precept (because the Constitution singles it out) is that “[a] well regulated Militia”—not an imaginary “individual right to keep and bear arms”—is “necessary to the security of a free State”. Having learned that much, Americans can compare the state of “liberty” in their own country (in which a large proportion of the citizenry remains armed), with the general nonexistence of “liberty” in foreign nations (in which disarmament of the populace is the usual state of affairs). What America’s Founding Fathers understood as “liberty” under “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” may be slipping into an increasingly perilous condition in this country; but it is largely defunct almost everywhere else. What (in Justice Stevens’ words) “we have * * * to learn about liberty from the billions of people beyond our borders” is that the deterioration of “liberty” here and its elimination there are not mere accidents of history. They derive from disregard of the first thirteen words of the Second Amendment in this country, and from the absence of the entire text of that Amendment in the organic laws of other countries.
- Finally, Mr. LaPierre rightly chides Justice Ginsburg for once saying that she “would not look to the U.S. Constitution if [she] were drafting a constitution * * * . [She] might look to the Constitution of South Africa[.]” “You might ask,” writes Mr. LaPierre, “why would a U.S. Supreme Court justice prefer another constitution to that which was forged in Philadelphia more than 200 years ago?” The explanation as to Justice Ginsburg, no doubt, is that she subscribes to a legal and political ideology incompatible with—indeed, diametrically opposed to—the principles of America’s Constitution, and therefore “prefer[s] another constitution” of her own imagining. What, though, is the explanation as to Mr. LaPierre?
Exactly what constitution, informed by what legal and political ideology, does he prefer? Apparently, it is a constitution with no firm grounding in pre-constitutional American legal history, a constitution to be construed on the basis of an ideology which licenses its exponents to dissect the Second Amendment, to disregard if not discard the Amendment’s first thirteen words, to disrespect the judgment of the Founders that “[a] well regulated Militia” is “necessary to the security of a free State”, and to discourage the members of the NRA, as well as those sympathetic to it throughout this country, from associating themselves with the Militia in thought, word, and deed, except when they deny that the Militia have any significant relationship to “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms”.
Misinterpretations of the Constitution with such an undercurrent of animosity towards the Militia could be expected to be broadcast by a certain “poverty” law center, notorious for its rabid opposition to the Second Amendment. Why they keep emanating from the NRA, however, passes understanding. Perhaps it really is true that whom the gods would destroy they first make mad. Unfortunately, if allowed to fester much longer this particular madness will destroy, not only the NRA, but the rest of us as well.

There is no logic in a man as intellectually accomplished as Mr. Vieira when he ignores the true issue confronting American’s. Take this to the bank Dr. Vieira there is no active constitutional republic on this Continent, which negates any reliance on the Original Constitution for the United States of America. That Constitution was over-run by the Constitution of the United States of America, and followed by several versions of privately owned Corporations, which is why we have NEVER had a militia of the several states, and never will due to the IGNORANCE of the people.

UN TROOPS TO KILL AMERICANS WHO WON’T GIVE UP THEIR GUNS
By Dave Hodges
There is a crisis coming. A false flag of epic proportions. Trump will provide the background and the pretext. Gun confiscation, by the UN, will be taking place on US soil. It was practiced in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. They will show up at 3AM, kick in your door, seize your gun and kill you if you offer any kind of resistance. Follow the progression.
The UN will be the enforcement agency. Why do you think that Quayle, Hagmann and Hodges have talking to you about foreign troops training on our soil?
Don’t let this man take your gun.
He wants a third term.
We have been down this road before.

“Complete disarmament” of the American people
Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.comMonday, July 16, 2012
The UN Arms Trade Treaty that has been identified by observers as a flagrant threat to the second amendment and which Barack Obama is determined to sign has its roots in a 1961 State Department memorandum which explains how the United Nations will oversee “complete disarmament” of the American people under the ruse of preventing war. The UN Arms Treaty has caused so much controversy because it outlines a plan to target “all types of conventional weapons, notably including small arms and light weapons,” according to Forbes’ Larry Bell. Former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton also warns that the agreement “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”
A letter sent last month by 130 Republican House members to President Obama argued that the treaty should be rejected because it infringes on the “fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms”. The letter adds that “…the U.N.’s actions to date indicate that the ATT is likely to pose significant threats to our national security, foreign policy, and economic interests as well as our constitutional rights.” Using the rhetoric of the threat post by terrorists, insurgents and “international crime syndicates,” the UN is busy trying to imply that all weapons are somehow involved in illegal activity on a global scale and should therefore be controlled and regulated by a global authority.
This is precisely the same language used in a 1961 U.S. State Department briefing which outlined a long term agenda to carry out a “Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World.” Invoking the threat of nuclear warfare, the document spells out a plan to create a “United Nations Peace Force” that would “enforce the peace as the disarmament process proceeds.” While the document initially focuses on scrapping nuclear weapons, it later makes it clear that the only groups allowed to own weapons of any kind would be governing authorities, “for the purpose of maintaining internal order,” and the UN “peacekeeping” force itself, which would require “agreed manpower.”
“The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those of agreed types and quantities to be used by the U.N. Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order. All other armaments would be destroyed or converted to peaceful purposes,” states the document. While the memorandum outlines a broader mandate to destroy national sovereignty, eviscerate national armies and institute the UN as the planet’s supreme authority with a world army, the document serves as a stark reminder that the plan for the United Nations to oversee the abolition of the second amendment has been in the works for decades.
As Bell points out in his Forbes article, the threat of the Obama administration relying on a UN treaty to do what successive administrations have tried but failed to accomplish — taking a huge bite out of the second amendment — is by no means far fetched. After all, a plethora of UN treaties and international agreements have already stripped the United States of its sovereignty and its power to decide its own laws. The power to authorize U.S. involvement in wars and conflicts has now been almost completely stripped from Congress and handed to the United Nations.
US State Department Memo validates all claims in this article.
This is where millions of you could spend your last days.
I can just hear the screams of joy coming out of the mouths of many of our dumbed down idiots, educated in our terrorist education system, and still convinced that Uncle Sam is taking care of them.

Russia’s air defense missiles, the S-400 have been moved into position in defense of Russian ICBM’s which is being readied for World War III.
Russia’s TASS Agency,as reported by Next News Network, is reporting that 10 missile regiments of Russia’s Strategic Missile Force are combat ready and are now positioned at the highest level of alert.
In a press release, the Strategic Missile Force’s press office stated that Seven regiments armed with Topol, Topol-M and Yars mobile missile systems will advance for combat patrols in the Ivanovo, Novosibirsk, Sverdlovsk, Kirov and Irkutsk Regions, the Altai Territory and the Republic of Mary E.
The press office further stated that, “The strategic missile forces will practice moving missile systems to field positions, performing marches with the change of field positions, carrying out measures for organization of the ground, camouflaging, protecting and defending military hardware and field positions.”
If this is not a provocative action by the Russians in preparation for World War III, I don’t know what constitute such an action.
If you chase a rabbit into his hole, he will stay there and starve to death if you keep making threats at the mouth of the hole. Is this what the Bankers Media Moguls are up to, or are they preparing to get rid of us worthless eaters?

We have seen some very heinous events over the past years of the Obama administration’s rule. We have seen the hollowing out of our military command structure (everyone is familiar with the list of field-grade and general staff-level commanders purged by Obama). We witnessed the “mothballing” of TARS (the balloon system complementing NORAD). We watch, as this administration shuts down production of the Tomahawk cruise missile, gets rid of the A-10 “Warthog” fleet that destroys tanks, and retires a dozen cruisers of the U.S. Navy, along with the aircraft carrier George Washington.
We watched one of the greatest examples of complicit treason and traitorous behavior as Obama sat on a well-lit stage in the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Summit, leaned over toward Dmitri Medvedev, and said, “Tell Vladimir, I will have more flexibility after the next election.” This statement concerned the stationing of U.S. missile defenses in eastern Europe and the reduction of ICBM’s (the United States’ missiles).
We watch as Obama has used his cabinet and the power-base he enjoyed when he had control of the U.S. Senate to lower the standards of the U.S. military, weakening it and turning it into an institution where his fundamental transformation agenda takes precedence over battle readiness and effectiveness. Unit cohesion is being undermined and destroyed, and the strength of our armed forces is on the wane.
We watched on as Obama handed the Chinese and Russians our response matrices and battle plans under the auspices of “Partnership Readiness and Joint Training Exercises.” This refers specifically to operations with the participation and direction of FEMA with joint drills between U.S. and Chinese forces in Hawaii November 12-14, 2013. These drills were conducted for “disaster management,” specifically for “humanitarian purposes,” and on U.S. soil. One of the administration’s “Yes-men,” American Admiral Sam Locklear stated:
“These types of exercises give us a good place to start and to get into the kind of rhythm of understanding and trusting each other.”
This came from the mouth of a U.S. Admiral, the commander of US Pacific Command. It is a shame that he isn’t being quoted right now with the standoff that is currently taking place between China and the U.S. just outside of Chinese territorial waters. What would his opinion be of the new hypersonic missile that China has developed to take out an entire carrier group with just ¼ megaton warhead?
Just this past weekend we witnessed more weakness and obfuscation regarding the missile launched off of the coast of California in the evening of 11/7/15, witnessed by thousands of people. Dave Hodges posted a comment from a gentleman who worked on Trident missiles who believed the launch (by the U.S. Navy) was to gauge response time and effectiveness in dealing with an SLBM (Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missile). Remember, the THAD system has proven itself several times under rigidly controlled conditions in Hawaii to be an abysmal failure regarding missile intercepts.
Matching the level of the (purposeful, administration-designed) U.S. complacency, the Russian military has been matchless in terms of tactical acumen and performance. Vladimir Putin’s brilliance is visible in the Russian offer in the form of a request for the U.S. to join it in the fight against ISIL/ISIS… a war against the very entity created and sponsored by the Obama administration. By not accepting the Russian offer, the U.S. appears not to be helping its “fellow partner and actor” on the world-stage of affairs. If it does accept, then the U.S. fights against its own creation.
The Russians are quietly and patiently on the move. We witnessed the annexation (the conquest) of Ukraine. Now a bitter semi-stalemate exists between ethnic Russian separatists with Ukrainian citizenship and the Ukrainian military, the former also “augmented” with Spetsnaz units. Those selfsame units have rotated into the Syrian theater of operations. We are watching the ongoing actions in Syria with the continuous Russian bombing of ISIS and the gradual movement of ground troops into the country.
Russia has been on the move, now, incrementally and patiently. In December 2013, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that Russia would respond with nuclear weapons. The Yars (SS-29) ICBM has been developed that can penetrate all current U.S. missile defenses. For those who may think this piece to be “slanted” towards current U.S. policy, please think again:
The U.S. has been in the process (for decades) of destabilizing former Soviet-bloc, eastern European nations with the infusion of capital from the IMF and with the insertion of American bases, military personnel, and war materials.
The Varshavyanka-class submarines (diesel, improved Kilo-class subs), also known as Project 636, with stealth technology and improved range in combat, are capable of striking targets on the land, under water, and on the surface. A 45-day range without refueling, and an arsenal of 18 torpedoes and 8 SAM’s (surface to air missiles) make these subs very formidable. They also can be fitted with cruise missiles capable of delivering a 250 kiloton warhead. They have been labeled the “black holes” of the ocean by the U.S. navy. One of these bad boys cruising up the Chesapeake Bay and into the Potomac…could pop out a cruise missile and fry DC in under three minutes.
A federal police officer reported on Steve Quayle’s website that Russia has been moving her subs into the Pacific, prepositioning its assets to conduct an attack on the West Coast of the U.S. and/or an EMP-device attack. The U.S. has been pushing things in Syria. Remember on March 24, 2014, that Andrei Kozyrev, former Russian Foreign Minister said that the Ukraine crisis was “in the 11th hour” to avoid a nuclear war. The U.S. was pushing things then in Europe, and this was the reason for the declaration of willingness to use nukes. On March 22, just two days earlier, the U.S. had sent 12 F-16 fighter planes and 300 troops to Poland.
The main point is that the U.S. and the NATO countries are now facing nations that are not backing down and if anything are taking a superior position regarding a potential attack posture. With the U.S. economy in a shambles and our military capabilities seriously compromised, the fall is visible on the horizon and steadily approaching. The situation changes on a daily basis, but one can see the two sides are on a collision course, one way or another.

Why Unrest of Any Kind Defeats Both Versions of America
There has been a lot of inappropriate talk about “civil war” in America. Let’s be perfectly blunt.
The Federal United States has been operated as a puppet by the British Government which in turn has been operated as a puppet by the City State of Westminster aka Inner City of London which has been operated by international banking cartels and the Bar for generations. In turn, these organizations have been influenced, led, and perpetuated by what Frank O’Collins calls “the Roman Cult” within the Roman Catholic Church.
Americans, like the British People, have gone along trustingly and been abused and enslaved.
We, Americans, have been used repeatedly as the “muscle” behind wars for profit and illegal and immoral police actions in other countries undertaken by the British Crown Corporation and its cronies throughout the world, with the result that we are widely blamed and despised as the perpetrators of all this greed and violence when in fact we have been victims like everyone else and have merely been more gullible than the rest of the world.
A careful reading of the historical documents, especially the treaties ending the Revolutionary War and The Constitution, reveals that the British retained control of a substantial portion of the American jurisdiction of the sea including our ability to conclude international treaties and commercial trade agreements—both of which have been crippled and controlled since the birth of our nation by this arrangement.
In exchange for our Forefather’s agreement to this deplorably bad deal, the British Monarch was made our Trustee on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways. It was thought that his clear obligation to the Americans in this capacity would bind his hands and prevent him from doing us harm. In 1794 a treaty between the Americans and the City State of Westminster was also concluded in which we were promised “perpetual” friendship and amity.
We definitely need to remind them of the meaning of “perpetual”.
So here we are at the beginning of the twenty-first century and our Trustees have proven to be our worst enemies— not only our worst enemies, but worst enemies of all freedom-loving and decent people everywhere. Since 1866 the British Government has privately promoted and perpetuated a policy of eternal war and enslavement of the world’s population while keeping up an appearance of being the bulwark and defender of western civilization. Like a pedophile acting as a Foster Parent, the British Government has spared no expense in its efforts to cover up its dirty work, but it is at last discovered.
The Federal United States is and has always been an instrumentality of the British Government and the international banks and the Bar Associations and it is the Federal United States—not the Continental United States— which has been guilty of all the crimes against humanity which have been racked up and placed at the door of the hapless Americans who have been deceived into believing that the Federal United States is or ever was their lawful government.
Time to wake up. We have been hosts for these parasites and now they are moving on to attempt to parasitize China and its vast population.
The so-called “Federal Government” is a foreign corporation under contract to provide our States with nineteen enumerated services directed by our Trustee the British Monarch and his corporate Executive Officer known as the “President of the United States”. The British Monarch was paid for this “service” with tribute in the form of mineral wealth extracted from the American States and was faithfully paid for involving us in an endless stream of unjust police actions and dirty commercial deals and then handing us the blame and the bills.
Let it stand before the American People and the entire world who the guilty parties actually are: the administration of Queen Elizabeth II, her corporation, ELIZABETH II, the British Crown Corporation and its franchises worldwide, the Lords of the Admiralty and the City-State of Westminister together with all its Successor Organizations and franchises, and the Holy See doing business as FRANCISCUS are directly and personally responsible for all this injustice and mayhem and mis-administration of the Public Trust in Britain, America, the Commonwealth, India, Japan, all of Western Europe and most of Eastern Europe, too.
The populations of all these countries have a grudge and many, many claims against these perpetrators; the People of China would be well-warned and advised not to accept any “gifts” from Jacob Rothshild or the World Bank or QEII, either. Gold and silver are not food, not fuel, and not the raw resources that China needs. Apart from being excellent conductors of electricity and photo emulsions, of what use are these so-called “precious” commodities?
Time to wake up.
We have all been bamboozled by these phonies (as in Phoenicians) long enough.
The bankers and lawyers who have acted as the foot soldiers of this global Evil Empire have planned various scenarios for the demise of America. First of all, we are to be blamed for all their sins. Second of all, we are to be charged with all their crimes. Third, we are to be stripped of whatever wealth we still have after they have stolen as much as they can possibly steal to pay their debts.
From their standpoint, it would be expedient to foment a civil war on our soil. There are a number of reasons.
First, it kills off their lawful Creditors, the American People. They are now claiming in the United Nations that we no longer exist and that the heirs of their Creditors are “absent” or “unknown”. This pathetic excuse is being offered as a means of avoiding paying back the American People for gold illegally confiscated in the 1930’s and labor and resources exchanged for no payment but hot air and paper ever since.
Second, murder of the American People allows them to collect on life insurance policies that they have gratuitously established on each and every one of us, naming themselves and their corporations as the beneficiaries.
Third, murder of the American People leaves an opportunity for them and their buddies to claim the “abandoned property” just as they did in Germany after the War.
They call this “plowing the field”—- emptying the land of its people and decrepit buildings and infrastructure so that it can be rebuilt under new ownership: theirs.
However, they have to have a plausible reason for attacking the American People, because after all they are under public contract to protect us and are continuing to siphon off large payments from our public treasuries for the service. They therefore have to find some sneaky, backdoor means to excuse their actions — and their continuing crimes against us.
It is time to recognize these criminals for who and what they are and to bring a stop to them and their predations upon the entire world. The most expedient way to do this is for everyone worldwide to cease operating as any form of corporation—simply dissolve them all, nationalize their assets in the case of “government” corporations, demand that the Pope acting as CEO liquidate those corporations that have acted as criminal syndicates—-including the major banks. Apply the Icelandic Answer.
Everyone please note that although these vermin have been misrepresenting the American People to the rest of the world for the past 150 years and mischaracterizing us at home, they are NOT the American People owed the land jurisdiction of the United States and never have been. The mis-administration and usurpation of our government that has been accomplished via semantic deceit and other forms of fraud, but that, too, has been discovered and is at an end.
If those responsible for this egregious behavior have any hope of surviving themselves, they must make amends to the rest of the planet and the people they have harmed.
In the case of the Federal United States the turning of the worm leaves one thing very clear: any attacks against the unarmed and peaceful American People to whom they owe “good faith service” will be instantly recognized as crimes of war and aggression by commercial mercenaries disguised as units of government.
Any failure to correct the political status of Americans to reflect their actual political status as “free sovereign and independent people of the United States” — that is, the Continental United States— like any attempt to mischaracterize their Creditors and the Heirs of their Creditors will also be recognized for what it is and rebutted.
Any failure of the British Monarch and the “President of the United States” to repay all the debt of the Federal United States that is lawfully owed to the innocent American People of the Continental United States will be obvious self-interest and default upon debt in the full view of all other nations.
When all those other peoples and nations have been afforded a full view of what has gone on here and stop to consider how they, too, have been abused, lied about, defrauded, and enslaved by these Babylonian Snake Oil Salesmen in tweeds, they will conclude as we have that we have all suffered from a single malady which has its world headquarters in the Inner City of London. And then we can all take appropriate action—like enforcement of the $279 trillion dollar International Commercial Obligation Lien which the Americans have placed against the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association and the misnamed Department of Justice which matures tomorrow.
The people of the Earth must unite against the evils perpetuated by the inhabitants of “the World”—a fake, illusory Satanic construct incorporated legal fictions— that is, lies— which serves only to mask the identities and obscure the filthy and violent intentions of profoundly evil men masquerading as philanthropists and pillars of the global community instead.
To all men and women everywhere the alarm goes forth and the claim in equity is clearly stated. This is our Earth. It belongs to us, not to any corporation. This, the American Government, as opposed to the “US Government” is a lawful and peaceful government “of the people, by the people and for the people”—- not a government “of the corporation, by the corporation and for the corporation”.
If we, the people of the Continental United States are forced to take up arms against those operating the Federal United States, it will be a clarion call for your joint understanding and assistance in removing this source of criminality from our mutual midst. Let the Federal United States and the Governments of Britain and the City-State of Westminster and the administration of the Vatican stand revealed as crime syndicates that have created and which are responsible for much of the poverty, misery, injustice, and conflict that have infested our planet for generations—-and not as they would portray themselves as enlightened philanthropists.
Petty crooks operating on a giant stage is much closer to the truth of it.
As each person reads this and knows that we can choose global peace or global war and that it is not negotiable that innocent victims should again bear the brunt of this criminality, don’t be afraid just because you are suddenlyaware that you are “just one person” in the midst of a universe. Become aware instead that you are the universe

Gun-free zones are a magnet for those who want to kill many people quickly. Even the most ardent gun control advocate would never put “Gun-Free Zone” signs on their home. Let’s stop finally putting them elsewhere. – John Lott Jr.
Theorem: There are NO GUN FREE ZONES
“Gun Free Zones” are bounded regions where law abiding people are not allowed to be armed – formally being disarmed before entering. Gun Free Zones in Public Spaces (GFZPS) are a violation of the Constitution for the United States, violate many State Constitutions, and, more importantly, violate Natural Law.
The fundamental law is the foundation of our society. In the United States of America, it is the U.S. Constitution. Through this document, our fundamental rights are secured and protected against infringement by the federal government and by the State governments, because the States are also parties to this contract. – Paul Andrew Mitchell, “The Federal Zone”
No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it. [16 Am. Jur. 2d, Section 177; later 2d, Section 256]
The state of Nature has a law of Nature to govern it, which obliges every one, and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions. The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but to have only the law of Nature for his rule. John Locke
Gun Free Zones in Public Spaces are dangerous and, like cancer, can become a pathological process spreading ever widening areas, including cities, parks, government occupied buildings and properties. It can further metastasize over whole public regions including counties and States.
COMPETITION FOR PEACE AND SECURITY
Competition is a sin, therefore you must destroy it. John D. Rockefeller
The theory of natural monopoly is an economic fiction. No such thing as a ―natural monopoly has ever existed. The history of the so-called public utility concept is that the late 19th and early 20th-century ―utilities competed vigorously, and like all other industries, they did not like competition. They first secured government-sanctioned monopolies, and then, with the help of a few influential economists, they constructed an ex post facto rationalization for their monopoly power. . . . The theory of natural monopoly is a 19th-century economic fiction that defends 19th-century (or 18th-century, in the case of the U.S. Postal Service) monopolistic privileges and has no useful place in the 21st-century American economy. – June 14, 1995 at the CATO Institute conference examining the question Postal Service in the 21st Century: Time to Privatize? DiLorenzo, Thomas J.
It is an axiom: competition for solutions in the markets of human action produce outcomes maximizing the values which support mankind’s life and happiness.
Competitive forces maximize truth and transparency, while actively and invisibly minimizing deception, fraud and dissimulative activities which drain and dissipate the resources originally available for the problems.
Values necessary for human survival include Peace and Security, without out either, mankind cannot evolve as a community and in the long term he cannot exist.
Gun Free Zones reduce competition for peace and security. Proceeding with an analogy from economics, GFZPS have the same effect as cartel created monopolies, unnatural and forcibly defended barriers against competitors deliberately erected around lucrative high demand products such as medical drugs (legal) and recreational drugs (illegal), and services, such as the provision of security via police forces and law enforcement.
Unable to maintain their government-granted monopoly, the powerful railroad interests turned to government to do the regulating and price-fixing which they were unable to do themselves. In fact, the pressure that induced Congress to enact the Interstate Commerce Act of 1887 did not come from reformers bemoaning abuses by the powerful railroad interests; it came from the railroad interests themselves, asking Congress to shield them against the harsh winds of competition. – THE BUSINESS END OF GOVERNMENT (1973). Dan Smoot
Forcibly defended monopolies mean the only people and groups allowed to provide and profit from the monopolized products, or services, are cartel members (corporate or criminal gangs) or Government created gangs (police forces.) In the case of gun free zones, the only people carrying weapons (illegally) are criminals. Criminals of course are not bound by the laws of a monopoly because all observance of law is a voluntary decision and criminals do not, by definition, voluntarily observe the law.
THE IDEA OF A GUN FREE ZONE IS MAGICAL THINKING: MANY PEOPLE ARE ARMED IN GUN FREE ZONES
In a monopoly controlled Gun Free Zone, there still exists a market for peace and security, but market forces are nullified creating a vacuum of competing solutions which would provide life maximizing results. In this situation, cartel members and criminals are given exclusive control of peace and security and yet neither group has any personal concern or investment for return in those values. Legally armed cartel members are concerned with law abiding people remaining disarmed and criminals are also concerned with law abiding people remaining disarmed, however for the different reason of increasing their chances of committing lowered risk further crime. This is common sense and is consistent with natural law.
Natural Law can be discovered and even understood and it can only be violated at some cost. In the case of an individual’s ability to maximize his peace and security, Natural Law is clear, the Individual must be fully self-responsible, ie., he or she must be a competing market provider of peace and security, primarily focusing on preserving protecting their own.
Competition, properly so-called, rests on the activity of separate, independent individuals owning and exchanging private property in the pursuit of their self-interest. It arises when two or more such individuals become rivals for the same trade. Ayn Rand
However as an individual provides for his own peace and security and brings his solution to the market, others will too, and must, bring their solutions thereby maximizing the number of competitive solutions providing peace and security. As the number of armed people increases, the incidence of violence and crime, inversely, is reduced. In an invisible way, crime and anti-life activity is minimized for all as the number of competing solutions for peace and security increase.
COMPETETIVE MARKET IN WEAPONS
In the case of weapons it’s also axiomatic that to support the Natural Law of competing solutions maximizing peace and security, there must be a competitive market of weapons available to competitors. It would be an unnatural (monopolized) market if only criminals and cartel members could be armed with the most powerful or technologically superior weapons. Again, criminals and unbalancing agents of the enforced monopoly would have a competitive edge in this market and peace and security would again be reduced if there were not competitive weapons available to everyone in the market.
Thus it is important to recognize: calls for reducing or eliminating your access to the best possible weapons technology of the day, are really a deceptive call to unbalance the market for peace and security and place you at a disadvantage in terms of maximizing your peace and security.
Gun Bans and Restrictions on Weapons Are Market Destabilizing
Cartels and monopolies of force are often created as a result of criminal elements having eliminated or usurped third party representatives formerly considered to be functioning to increase your peace and security.
The Constitution of the United States, acting as a clarifier and preserver of Natural Law, explicated the Natural Law of Self
Defense. The Constitution did not make the Law, but was created to provide a legal framework wherein the government established by the document would have enumerated restrictions on how the government could legally act.
It’s clear that for a period of some years, the Constitution was a sufficient reminder and the court systems a sufficient deterrent against acting outside or in a manner inconsistent with Natural Law and the Laws restricting government action as codified in the Constitution.
But consistent with our understanding of how deception, fraud and unbalancing of coercion free markets is necessary for criminals, and those seeking enrichment not via successful and productive efforts but rather by enslaving or stealing from others, we can directly correlate the creation of monopolies in all profitable markets required by man with a violation of Natural Law (with costs distributed to all not benefitting from the monopoly) and hence violations of the Constitution for the United States.
The Constitution has now become powerless and no longer limits government action, but has been interpreted to limit the action of market actors; the market being all areas where men and women could and should rightly participate in commerce without coercive limitations on action.
One such area is in the market for peace and security. Criminals, now actually parties with legal rights or cartel rights inside the created monopolies, are restricting free and open competition for maximizing the values of peace and security.
It’s totally clear and fully transparent, gun free zones, proliferating in ever widening circles of enforcement, are spaces being made safe and for criminal activity, keeping in mind, criminals do not voluntarily recognize the legal restrictions of gun free zones.
Arming the people has the effect of creating competition in economic markets – With more and more people armed the competition for peace provides MAXIMUM PEACE. And by way of economic principles, it is not the actual competition (outwardly carrying guns) that reduces violence, but rather it is the threat of competition (possible conceal weapons on everyone) — the threat of people everywhere competitively armed – that reduces the violence and cost.. It is common sense and natural law.
We are now witnessing the government acting in a manner that is consistent with favoring criminals, unbalancing the market and institutionalizing violence and predation.
STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM
History records time and time again, institutions organizing, at first in service or as representatives for individuals acting in a way supposedly beneficial to individuals. This usually starts out as a system of providing quasi-market solutions for problems individuals find troublesome or uncomfortable creating solutions.
However, over time, criminal elements, psychopaths and their sycophants will begin to infiltrate and then escalate the number of services provided. Slowly at first, market solutions for many common problems are eliminated as government offers solutions sold as better than competitive services can provide.
People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. – Adam Smith
This process easily continues as people, especially European people , (read about white Pathological Altruism), are very trusting and readily handover responsibilities and tasks they find troublesome, labor intensive, or otherwise not pleasurable.
Over time these governments, Monarchies, or any system of controlling people begin to use fear, intimidation and the invention of problems for which they can provide monopoly solutions. Costly solutions that ultimately reduce peace and security as their veiled goal is really predation on those unbalanced toward a weaker position in the market place of human action.
But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary. Adam Smith
State Sponsored Terrorism is a natural and typical act of a fully evolving criminal, mentally ill, control system which attempts to surround populations in monopolies of force, eventually creating total gun free zones inside their nations, while terrorizing the people into giving up their competitive positions and, as criminals, preying on the unprotected individuals across all perceived dimensions of wealth and value.
These governments and their masters know peace and security are increased by individual competitors, using the most competitive weapons technology available, freely offering (un-coerced) competitive solutions in the marketplace.
Therefore, the only logical conclusion to be drawn is, the Government intends to do violent crimes against the people and naturally must reduce the number of firearms in the hands of the people to accomplish this goal.
State Sponsored Terrorism is nothing more than marketing, albeit ruthless, often bloody, and always immoral, by a control system in support of a monopoly in the market of solutions and services offering peace and security
Governments, collectivized gangs and pockets of mentally ill crime syndicates must still compete in the social and economic market place of human action in order to gain market share and market control. This is a fact most don’t understand, much or all of the evil and injustice done by one group to another is done with permission, either overtly or covertly via tacit acceptance of the products, services and contracts of an illicit defacto control system.
It’s not until, an organization within a market obtains a corner on the market that they can evolved into a fully coercive tyranny, closing the doors to any competition and then gouging takes places in areas of important services. This explains why the Obama Regime must continuously create false flag shootings in order to gain American’s permission to begin the process of disarming. After a certain number of people provide support for the idea, the monopoly will have enough power to force its barriers around all peoples: Time is short.
Gun Free Zones are the safe spaces where State sponsored terrorism can exist mostly unimpeded.
Gun Free Zones are action zones, State actors and criminal actors artificially causing market unbalancing legal restrictions on people’s ability to protect themselves. In the end, as all people are disarmed, the worst personality traits begin to monopolize the positions of authority in the control system until, a mentally ill monopoly of force begins its most egregious acts of terrorism, theft, rape and mass murder. This has been explored as the concept of Pathocracy wherein, organizations begin to populate with similar minded, mentally ill or psychopathic personality traits.
Communism is such a political system and, over its nearly 200 years of implementation, every expression of this malignant political system has exhibited mentally ill and psychopathic behaviors leaving misery and wealth destruction as its legacy.
When a government or system of control begins to demand it provide solutions for peace and security, not voluntarily, and when concomitantly, peace and security are reduced with violent and escalating attacks on people and property (and always “advertised” via a public media circus) you must immediately recognize the danger; the control system is marketing a mentally ill system of control.
At this moment in time we have an emergency situation. The acts of Terrorism against the people, ie., Oklahoma City bombing, 9-11, mass shootings like the Batman Movie Theatre shootings, with James Holmes or the Safeway Shooting with Jared Loughner, or the TOTALLY FAKED attacks like the Sandy Hook School Shooting and likely the Boston Bombing, and attacks which may have been faked like those recently in Paris and San Bernardino, **are only the beginning**. Because when the people can no longer provide for their own defense, then anything and everything will be done to them — history has shown.
ARGUMENTS FOR IRRATIONAL ACTORS
Many argue mass shooters are mentally ill and emotionally charged. Claiming such states of mind preclude rational thinking regarding the location of mass shooting. The Batman Shooter, James Holmes for example never mentioned in his notes or other clues the theatre’s ‘Gun Free Zone” policy had anything to do with his choice of venue for his “mass shooting”.
However, if one actually believes the Holmes shooting was not either encouraged, provocateured, engineered or otherwise influenced by State actors working toward an agenda of total disarmament of the American people, one has to realize by unintentionally choosing a “Gun Free Zone” Holmes was elevating his chances of not being shot while committing his crime. Further the death toll was statistically likely to be higher as a result of the “Gun Free Zone” location.
It was also claimed in a 2002 study right to carry laws have no effect on the location of a mass shooting (This study does not include recent data, refuting this claim.) But again, it is not the location a “right to carry” law should affect, it’s the elimination of a threat or shooting in progress that a Natural Law right to defend your life most certainly will affect.
Most Americans cannot wrap their head around the fact that most of the recent escalation of mass shootings is in some way influenced by the control system which is attempting to disarm Americans.
NATURAL LAW SOLUTIONS FOR REDUCING GUN AND OTHER VIOLENT CRIME
If the government actually cared about insuring the least number of causalities were caused by mass a shooting situation (or other violent crime), then it would have no choice but to recommend the Swiss system of arming and training all people to defend themselves.
Gun and weapons training could again be part of the education system and begin early in a child’s life resulting in self-assured less fearful people aware of the fact that a virtual police officer was everywhere – all the time – in the form of citizens equally armed and trained to respond.
Training people at a young age to use, respect and understand the importance and position, in a self-dependent individual’s life tool complement, is the most responsible, rational and mature way to ensure self-defense is a basic component of healthy state of mind and part of creating, from birth, healthy and self-dependent personality traits.
This system naturally reduces violent crimes, rapes, robberies, while minimizing damage due to mentally ill shooters who are not motivated to save their own lives in first place.
Creating a state of dependency in which others are to stand up for your life and to be available in your instantaneous moment of need is childish thinking; the magical thinking of an undeveloped state of consciousness. This is a condition deliberated created by those planning to exploit this vulnerability; public education is culpable and complicit in the devolution of adult states of mind.
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. Benjamin Franklin
Clearly Natural Law requires adult people take responsibility for their own lives, otherwise third parties, who are under no obligation to risk their lives for yours, will convince you to transfer your self-responsibility to them in exchange for protection. Transferring self-responsibility to another makes you a ward, a slave, beholden to another for your physical safety and, by induction, anything similar to safety, eventually transferring responsibility for whole classes of actions you are no longer rightfully allowed to take.
SILLY ARGUMENTS THAT GUNS IN HANDS OF THE PEOPLE DO NOT STOP TYRANNY
Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives. James Madison
There are many that argue (supporting their oppressors) guns in the hands of militias and the people could not have stopped the absolute torturous blood bath of the mentally ill Bolsheviks set loose on Russia by the European and American Jewry and other genocides prosecuted against defenseless peoples.
In the myopic article called Militia Myths the author makes the claim: A historical analysis reveals that Militias are typically the gateway to tyranny, not the safeguard against it. A heavily armed population has little to no bearing on preventing tyranny. and then gives examples of nations using a militia to throw off foreign aggressors only to create some new form of dictatorship afterwards. He cites examples of the liberating militias degenerating into tyrannies in countries like Vietnam, Afghanistan, Cuba, Somalia, Iraq, and southern Lebanon. The rest of the article makes similar claims about Bolshevik Russia and other nations where blood baths resulted when unarmed and untrained peoples fell victims to violent psychopaths.
The article referenced above is written by a person with absolutely no understanding, or apparent education regarding the psychologies and personality types of nations, races and cultures. Nations structured around forms of social heirarchy, having no long standing, historical and institutionalize protection of values, such as property rights, contract law, Individualism, Natural Law and other mainly Western values, as codified in common law principals, cannot be expected to create new governments or ruling bodies based on those values. Western culture (European white cultures) have for hundreds of years had an enlightened system of law and justice based on the Natural Law ideas of
1) Do all you have agreed to do – which is the basis of contract law;
2) Do not encroach on other persons and their property – which is the basis of criminal and tort law. Richard Maybury
Additionally, nations and their peoples with NO HISTORY of identifying and enshrining moral philosophical values preserving individual rights OR isolating governments from assimilating a religious dogma as part of its system of law, cannot expect some liberating internal militia to afterward “promote a Free State”. Again, this is childish or magical thinking, resulting in the formation of conclusions which are harmful to rational thought regarding maintaining peace and security and minimizing despotism, tyranny and mentally ill systems of control.
The cultures and governments of the East and, in fact, isolated and heavily influenced by Eastern immigrants, Czarist Russia, did not or do not possess a law based on Scientific Law, or Natural Law, but rather on Political law. As Richard Maybury aptly points out:
POLITICAL LAW IS BASED ON POLITICAL POWER.
It has no requirement for logic or morality. It changes whenever the political wind changes. Fickle and tangled, no one can completely understand it…. You do whatever the power-holders say, or else. Right or wrong.
This type of social structure will not allow or promote a system enabling individuals to grow and advance with an understanding of their right to self-defense and protection of their own property. To expect a “Free State” to just manifest after an untrained, either morally or philosophically, militia or organization of peoples with guns, throw off a given tyranny is just plain silly.
But in fact, Americans, mostly educated (as the educational system has been hobbled and purposely dumbed down) in a system of property rights, contract law, and the moral values of individualism, could easily and handily throw off tyrants and still retain the knowledge and understanding of how to reconstituted a system based on those principles of property rights, contract law and the common law (Natural Law) tenets of individual rights.
A skilled common law judge would try to make all his decisions logically consistent with the two fundamental laws. Common law was not only a private legal system, it was a scientific one. Abraham Lincoln considered `Euclid’s Geometry’ to be one of his most important law books; he studied it to be sure the logic of his cases was airtight.
One of the most important characteristics of common law was its certainty. It had evolved very carefully over many centuries, changing little from one decade to the next. The two fundamental laws remained always in place, a stabilizing force. The community could expect their legal environment to remain reasonably orderly. Richard Maybury]
It has been shown repeatedly armed citizens reduce causalities or prevent mass shootings.
The question for the American people, and not the usurped Federal or State Governments, is one of third party trust. Can
American’s expect their governments to protect them? Can American’s in light of all of human history, expect their governments to not become immoral, corrupt or tyrannical? Do Americans feel safe, even as their governments invite mostly fighting age males from Eastern nations having no moral or philosophical training or upbringing in the ways of a Limited Republic or a religiously unconcerned system of control based on common law, including property rights and individual rights? Do American’s feel safer disarmed as their own country is being overrun by criminals, former terrorists, rapists and people with other undesirable characteristics, a people that are not going to assimilate and become Western, but are rather going to struggle non-stop to make America more Eastern.
Will Americans feel safer disarmed as a financial collapse of proportions never experienced in America, deliberately caused by the financial looting of a criminal banking system and the vitiated corporate monopolies they licensed, creates armies of hungry, homeless and outraged people forced to take to the streets looking for answers and shelter from the banker’s caused financial nuclear winter?
The Government, their corporate masters and the criminal banking families behind them all are desperate to be sure Americans do not throw off their intended tyranny and restore a Natural Law system of government and reinvigorate the moral justice system that was once America and finally come after those who have attempted, with extreme hubris, to collapse civilization and rebirth it into a deformed, mentally ill, fledging New World Tyranny.
MY CONCLUSION: Hold On To Your Guns Like Your Life Depends On Them.
Please read more than once as Mr. Mullen’S make this situation clear as a bell. If you want something done your way, doing it yourself always works. Never trust a government, as history proves they always screw the people. Be ready and capable of defending your life no matter where you may be.

In yesterday’s post titled, Obama Talks Martial Law, Texas Takeover, and Conspiracy Theory, you were introduced to just how sick a set of rules Obama plays by. There is not a moral or ethical fiber anywhere in his person. Just when it seemed like there was no one anywhere willing to stand up to the President who behaves like a 6th grade school girl, it turns out a whistleblower has stepped forward, somewhat reluctantly, and revealed that the plans of the New World Order, the Bilderberg’s, the Illuminati, etc., all of which obviously include Obama, are in for a serious smack down if what this whistleblower says is true. Based on how easily some of the information could be verified, and given who the host of the video below is, I’m going to take the man at his word at the very least for the portions involving the The International Court of Justice.
The interview begins with David Wilcock interviewing a remarkable new whistleblower, going by the name Drake for the time being. The subject of the interview is a series of mass arrests set to take place across the globe in the very near future, primarily in the G5 countries. The Interview is about two hours, but once Drake gets into the meat of the topic, the time flies. When I first began listening, I made the assumption the mass arrests being referred to would be the arrest of citizens with the potential to be“troublemakers,’ most likely from the Government “Threat List” Which Names 8 Million Americans To Be Detained As Soon As Martial Law Imposed!
I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG!
THIS NEWS SHOULD LEAVE YOU REJUVENATED!
According to Drake, we are about to witness the largest coup in history, and those being arrested will be the global elites, or the New World Order, whatever you wish to call them. Until Drake’s testimony, the only media personality other than Wilcock who had referred to a mass arrest scenario of the global elites, has been Benjamin Fullford. Both have contacts both deep within the Pentagon at the highest levels. Wilcock’s source (again, a very senior official within the Pentagon) vetted Drake for over 4 hours, and concluded the story he tells in the interview below is 100% accurate. After all, Wilcock’s source should know, because the vast majority of the military is on board with this coup. The entire interviews is below, and I cannot suggest listening to it for yourself enough, but in the meantime I’ll do my best to summarize the whole thing as briefly as possible.
The name of the group that Drake has been affiliated with is called Freedom Reigns and you can find archived material at freedomreigns.us. The focus of Freedom Reigns, has been on the subject of Nation States, however it is important you realize that any group using the term Nation State as part of their name is a fraud. Freedom Reigns has no official group roster, no leader, no database, and no one knows everyone else involved, and that is done as a security precaution.
Much like I often refer to the American public as “Headline Readers and Soundbite Seekers,” because if the news doesn’t fit in a Tweet or on a bumper sticker, most people skip it, Drake Chastises the American people for becoming SO lazy that they’ve become incapable of vetting information for themselves when they hear it. Drake also chastises websites like mine, or like Alex Jones, accusing us of promoting “fear porn,” but until now, there was nothing to suggest the events we have been witnessing could be stopped. Because so many of us have been conditioned to cry Bullsh** no matter what we hear (and rightfully so most of the time), when events do being to unfold, Drake said the vast majority of people will mistake the military and those who ARE the good guys for our enemy, which is why is partly why he has come forward to speak now.

As I said up top, the main topic of the interview involves Nation States. Due to space constraints (you can always listen for yourself), I am going to fly through much of the legalease portion of how the majority of the United States have already declared their sovereignty and “disengaged” from the Corporation known as the United States of America, and they have done so rather slyly.
To make a long story short, a group traced the origins of all law as far back as the Sumerian tablets from roughly 11,000 years ago. That form of law was known as Ecclesiastic law, which later evolved into Cannon Law, and the combination of the two formed English Common Law, which our own system is based on. The group discovered that provided a piece of property is correctly registered and boundaries clearly discerned, representatives from the group habituating there can declare the land to be a sovereign nation. Without going into detail, the research team and legal scholars came to that conclusion.
Furthermore, all that is required to declare one’s land sovereign is notification to The International Court of Justice (French: Cour internationale de justice; commonly referred to as the World Court or ICJ) is the primary judicial branch of the United Nations. It is based in the Peace Palace in The Hague, Netherlands. Its main functions are to settle legal disputes submitted to it by states and to provide advisory opinions on legal questions submitted to it by duly authorized international branches, agencies, and the UN General Assembly.
Once the notification process is complete, the sovereign nation becomes part of a publication, and gets listed by the U.N in an International Newspaper. Apparently, the first attempt was made in Pennsylvania, and upon getting their receipt back from The International Court of Justice, several very high ranking members of the Pentagon showed up asking questions.
The most pressing questions: Could it be done again all around the country? By the end of February 2015, The International Court of Justice had processed and already sent back receipts to the majority of U.S. States. Here is where things get extremely interesting. In order to be able to disengage from the Corporation of the United States of America, each sovereign nation had to have a Constitution, one that agreed with 1787 Constitution completely, it had to agree with original 13th Amendment, contain The Bill of Rights, The Articles of Confederation, and The Declaration Independence.
By declaration their sovereignty, disengagement, or their effort to remove themselves (individual states) from the corporate U.S. Government, it had the legal effect of rebirthing the Declaration of Independence which clearly states on Page 2 that if the government gets out of control, the people have the right to take care of the problem.
The manner and format of using those documents (original founding documents), in conjunction with a meeting of representatives of a representative state gave people the right to make the declaration for their independence. That, then gives them the authority, the civilian authority, to take actions as necessary to back up the civilian action taken, or in other words, defend itself. Not only did the majority of the states complete this process by February, but many of the Native American Indian Nations were included as well. As of right now, the majority of the United States has been set FREE from the corporate government legally, on an international basis. In the interest of space, you’ll have to trust me that is doesn’t conflict with the Constitution. Listen to the interview for the full details.

The final package with the majority of the states came at one time, and by the time the last few stages were playing out, the global elites had caught on. They did their best to stop the process, but were unsuccessful. According to Drake and the insiders at the Pentagon, IF martial law is declared, somewhere between 80-90% of the military has agreed to go AWOL.
Once the arrests begin, the precedent set will be for the civilians to control the military, the military controls the Federal Marshals, and the Federal Marshals support local law enforcement. Those actively involved in carrying out these arrests hope to disrupt daily life as little as possible, so martial law will not be declared, as no one expects much of a serious fight from the old crusty elites (my choice of words). At this point, the global elites have been so severely weakened financially, they could never come close to mounting an attack against actual law enforcement. For evidence of just how broke they are, one need not look farther than all the bailouts. They certainly did not do that out of the kindness of their hearts.
There is obviously a great deal more discussed in the interview, and in much deeper detail, so I encourage you to listen and share with a friend. Drake says that when the time comes, local broadcasting will be commandeered, and announcements will be made to cut down on the panic of the populace. If you listen to Benjamin Fullford or David Wilcock regularly, you know that their connections within the Pentagon are solid. Let’s all hope and pray for a safe and speedy end to this vaccination of our planet from all the filth that has ruled over it for centuries.
Whistleblower- Plan To Take Down NWO
Donald Trump recently entered the Syrian refugee debate and had some bold things to say about the crisis.
The Republican presidential front runner spoke with Fox News’ Eric Bolling on Cashin’ In about the issue. During the interview, Trump expressed his deep concern about potentially letting jihadists come into the country as “refugees.”
“They were talking about 3,000 people coming,” he told Bolling.
“Then I heard 10 [thousand], then I heard 25 [thousand], then I heard 200,000 people.”
“And Eric, if you look at this migration, it’s mostly men,” Trump said. “And they look like young men, and strong men, and they look like fighters.”
Trump said he wondered “why aren’t they fighting for their own country — Syria?”
He went on to say, “This could be one of the greatest military coups of all time.” Trump obviously wasn’t talking about a domestic military overthrow of the government, but a surprise attack from a foreign enemy, as indicated when he said, “Some of [the immigrants] definitely in my opinion will be ISIS.”
Trump warned that accepting refugees in our attempt at humanitarianism could be like accepting “a Trojan horse.”
Many migrants, including Islamic militants, would come to an unprepared United States.
He further pointed out that the United States is a “debtor nation” that owes $19 trillion, and our infrastructure is outdated.
“Obama wants to bring 200,000 people here,” Trump said. “[I]f I win the election, they are going back. They’re going back.”
Under a Trump administration, instead of transferring these migrants to European countries or the U.S., “free zones, safe zones” would be set up in Syria for these people.
Trump pointed out that the Persian Gulf states aren’t “accepting anybody.”
“And they are right there,” he said. “We have a big problem in this country.”
Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter and tell us what you think about Trump’s comments on the Syrian refugee crisis.
By Brandon Turbeville
A recent poll conducted by YouGov revealed that a sizable portion of the American public is open to the idea of a military coup in the United States. The poll was conducted amid the continual polling that takes place during the U.S. Presidential election yet it did not focus on the elections per se, but the potential lack of elections in the future.
The YouGov poll surveyed 1,000 people online and determined that 29% of Americans, over a quarter of the population, could imagine supporting a military coup against the civilian government. Only 41% could not imagine supporting a coup.
The numbers supporting a potential coup were highest among Republicans with 43% of them saying they could envision supporting a coup, 29% of independents followed, with Democrats trailing at 20%.
The numbers apparently increased in support when the question asked “whether they would hypothetically support the military stepping in to take control from a civilian government which is beginning to violate the constitution.”
Critics of the polls have suggested that the method used to conduct the survey was largely unscientific and not a reasonable representation of an accurate sampling of the general American public.
Regardless of how it was conducted, the real question here is “Why was this poll conducted in the first place?” Why are Americans being asked if they would support a military coup? After all, in the past, whenever a critic of the government would suggest such a possibility, that individual was laughed off the stage as being paranoid and hyperbolic. We are told military coups are not an option in the United States and, being the exceptional nation, we are outside of history. We are told that the very idea that a military coup could ever take place is laughable. So, why the poll?
Indeed, as the TWSP has asked, “Who commissioned it? Was it ordered up by a clique of ambitious and disgruntled military men eager to redeem their defeats on the battlefield with some kind of seizure of power here in the United States? Up to now, we do not know these answers.”
The question is thus: Are the American people being prepped to accept a military coup in the United States and the subsequent martial law that will almost inevitably follow such a seizure of power?
Was this poll conducted for the benefit of the oligarchs who would perpetuate this coup? Not likely, since the Pentagon and the Military-Government-Intelligence apparatus already has extravagant ways of knowing whether or not the American people are receptive to coups. Was it merely an exercise in predictive programming and trend setting polling data – the same method that is used in color revolutions – to create a sense of social consensus and promote the idea that the majority supports a specific idea?
But the United States is not the only country that has had talk of military coups as of late. Upon the election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the UK Labor Party, a “senior serving general” opined that, if Corbyn was ever elected as Prime Minister, the military might simply remove him from power.
According to a report by the London Daily Mail,
“A senior serving general, speaking anonymously to the Sunday Times, said Mr. Corbyn’s victory has been greeted with ‘wholesale dismay’ in the army.”
e added: “There would be mass resignations at all levels and you would face the very real prospect of an event which would effectively be a mutiny.
‘Feelings are running very high within the armed forces. You would see a major break in convention with senior generals directly and publicly challenging Corbyn over vital important policy decisions such as Trident, pulling out of NATO and any plans to emasculate and shrink the size of the armed forces…
The Army just wouldn’t stand for it. The general staff would not allow a prime minister to jeopardize the security of this country and I think people would use whatever means possible, fair or foul to prevent that. You can’t put a maverick in charge of a country’s security.’”
Corbyn’s plans and “reforms” are relatively mild on many accounts. However, that is apparently enough to justify the seizure of total power by the military in the minds of some. It also echoes the past claims by retired Army Gen. Paul E. Vallely, a friend of accused pedophile and avowed Satanist Michael Aquino, that he had answered a call asking if he would lead a coup against the civilian government if he were provided with 250,000 marines. Vallely responded that, yes, he would indeed lead a coup if the conditions were right.
While it remains to be seen what plans are being set in motion for the future of civilian governments in the United States and the UK, it is greatly concerning that convenient polls regarding military coups are being conducted and disseminated amongst the public while serving and retired military officials talk openly of the same act of treason. As discontent grows with higher unemployment, increased immigration, more foreign wars, higher food prices, and lower living standards, it is apparent that the ruling elite in both the United States and the UK – actually one and the same – are preparing to ensure that such discontent will be crushed and that no reforms, however modest, will ever be allowed to move forward.
Americans and British people must understand what is at stake before it is too late.
This whole plan sounds like a bunch of bullshit to me!
There is no way in hell they can set up a secure communication network. Which is the most important attribute in any war. And I would not trust General Valley any further than I could throw him.

A look at the role of the U.S. in a dismal year marked by war and violence
By Ben Norton
The year 2015 was marked by violence and war. The most prevalent story in the U.S. media throughout the year was ISIS. The Paris attacks, mass shootings, police brutality, terrorism, the Charleston massacre and the refugee crisis were also among the top 10 stories of the year.
The U.S., as the world’s leading military power, played an important role in much of this violence and war. In some cases, the U.S. directly participated in armed conflicts. In others, it played a supportive role, providing weapons and other forms of aid to warring parties. Although it has just 5 percent of the global population, the U.S. sells more than half of the world’s weapons.
The numerous wars throughout the Middle East, South Asia and North Africa can seem complicated, because of the variety of different forces involved. The following is a guide to 10 of the major armed conflicts in which the U.S. was involved in 2015.

President Obama promised countless times he would end the war in Afghanistan by 2014. He was reelected on the promise — which he subsequently broke, twice, instead further entrenching the U.S. military occupation of the South Asian country.
In 2014, the Obama administration announced that it would not just be delaying U.S. withdrawal; it would in fact also be expanding the U.S. role in the war. In 2015, the Obama administration said U.S. troops would remain in Afghanistan until 2017.
Some politicians, including Sen. John McCain, have called for a permanent U.S. military presence in the country, which has geostrategical importance, will be part of the TAPI natural gas pipeline, and contains trillions of dollars worth of natural resources.
The U.S. invaded Afghanistan in 2001. More than 220,000 Afghans were killed in the first 12 years of the U.S. war, according to a report conducted by Physicians for Social Responsibility.
Al-Qaida, which was isolated and weak when the U.S. war in Afghanistan began, has since grown exponentially, expanding into almost every country in the Middle East. Extremist Islamist groups like the Taliban have also regained strength and legitimacy under the U.S. military occupation, and ISIS has entered Afghanistan.
In October, the U.S. bombed a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, killing 30 people, including 14 hospital staff. A nurse who survived the attack said there “are no words for how terrible it was,” recalling “patients were burning in their beds.”
Washington’s story behind the attack changed numerous times and was full of contradictions. Despite numerous calls by Doctors Without Borders and the U.N. for an independent investigation, the U.S. refused to allow one.
Doctors Without Borders subsequently withdrew from Kunduz, leaving the entire region of northeastern Afghanistan without a large-scale hospital. The region has been taken over by the Taliban.

Throughout 2015, the U.S. led a coalition of countries that are carrying out airstrikes on the self-proclaimed Islamic State.
A French journalist formerly held captive by ISIS has claimed that the U.S.-led bombing campaign is “pushing people into the hands of ISIS,” rather than weakening it. “Strikes on ISIS are a trap,” he warned. “We are just fueling our enemies and fueling the misery, the disaster, for the local people.”
American intelligence agencies and experts have admitted that the U.S.-led war in Iraq and Syria against ISIS is not effective, despite the Pentagon spending an average of $9.4 million every day on airstrikes.
Former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair apologized in 2015 for participating in the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, which he admitted led to the rise of ISIS.
The U.S. government invaded Iraq in 2003, relying on allegations that dictator Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction — which officials later admitted was false. The U.N. asserted in no uncertain terms that the U.S. invasion was “illegal.”
Although the Bush administration falsely claimed Hussein had ties to al-Qaeda, the extremist group was not present in Iraq when the U.S. invaded. It was in fact that the U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that led the once small yet now enormous al-Qaeda to spill into the country, and subsequently spread throughout the Middle East.
The U.S. support for brutal militias like the Wolf Brigades and a sectarian Shia-majority government further alienated the Sunni minority, radicalizing civilians and creating more sympathy for extremist groups.
At least 1 million people were killed in the U.S. war in Iraq, according to the aforementioned Physicians for Social Responsibility study. The report also notes that “this is only a conservative estimate.”
The U.S. military illegally occupied Iraq from 2003 to 2011. The Obama administration officially withdrew from Iraq in 2011. In 2014, however, with the rise of ISIS, the U.S. once again militarily intervened.
Today, vast swaths of Iraq are controlled by ISIS, one of the most heinous and violent groups to emerge since World War II.
The Kurds have also fought a war of independence in Iraq and northern Syria. Kurdish fighters, who are leftist, secular, and feminist, have relied to an extent on U.S.-led airstrikes, and have successfully liberated territory from ISIS.

Civil war erupted in Syria in 2011. The armed conflict, which is still ongoing, and is now approaching its fifth year, has been nothing short of catastrophic.
4.4 million Syrian refugees are registered with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. More than half of the population of Syria has been displaced in the ongoing war.
More than 250,000 Syrians have been killed in the conflict, and entire cities have been reduced to rubble, from constant government bombing and rebel fighting.
The Obama administration has called for the ouster of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, and has armed and trained anti-Assad rebels, yet reporting by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh shows that the Department of Defense has in fact simultaneously supported the Assad government — suggesting the U.S. government has continued a policy of backing both sides, similar to that it pursued in the Iran-Iraq War in the 1980s.
Although the U.S. has supported a wide variety of armed rebel groups, it did not directly militarily intervene until the rise of ISIS, late in 2014.
U.S. allies, particularly Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar, have also supported extremist Islamist groups in Syria, including al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra.
Dozens of countries have fueled the Syrian civil war, along with non-state militant groups like Hezbollah. More than 30 countries are involved in the fight against ISIS in Syria and Iraq, including the U.S., Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, the U.K., Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, France, Canada, Australia, Morocco, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Spain and more.
Hundreds of civilians have also been killed in the U.S. and Russian bombing of ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Since March, the U.S. has backed a Saudi-led coalition of Middle Eastern countries in their war on Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East.
Thousands of Yemenis have been killed in the war, including hundreds of children. Tens of thousands have been injured. An average of 25 Yemenis were killed every day throughout the nine-month war.
The Western-backed coalition seeks to reinstate President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. It is fighting Houthi rebels, who have received some weapons and support from Iran — although the extent to which it has is disputed — and fighters loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. Hadi claims the Houthi rebels are puppets of Iran; the rebels characterize Hadi as a puppet of Saudi Arabia and the U.S.
Approximately two-thirds of civilian deaths and property destruction have been caused by the Saudi-led coalition, according to the U.N. Amnesty International has also reported that “more civilians have died as a result of coalition airstrikes than from any other cause during the conflict in Yemen.”
Leading human rights organizations have accused the U.S.-backed coalition of committing war crimes. Rights groups have called on the U.S. to stop providing the coalition with the weapons — including widely banned cluster munitions — they are using to carry out these atrocities.
The coalition has bombed hospitals, weddings, refugee camps, humanitarian aid warehouses, and two Yemeni Doctors Without Borders medical facilities.
The UAE and Qatar have also essentially invaded the country.
Rights groups warned in August that 80 percent of Yemen’s population —21 million people — desperately needed humanitarian aid. The U.N. warned in November that the “health and education systems in the country are on the brink of collapse.”
For years before the war broke out, the U.S. was carrying out a secret drone war in Yemen, which killed a large number of civilians, terrorizing and radicalizing the population. Scholars, intelligence officials, and journalists have argued that the drone war has only exacerbated extremism, and the U.N. says the U.S. killed more civilians with its drone strikes in Yemen than al-Qaeda.
The coalition-backed President Hadi approved and praised the U.S. drone war in his country.

More than 9,000 people have been killed in the ongoing war in eastern Ukraine, according to the U.N. At least 20,000 more have been injured.
In March 2014, Russia annexed Crimea, which was internationally recognized to be Ukrainian territory. Crimea has a Russian-majority population that voted in support of the annexation.
War subsequently broke out in the Donbass region of Ukraine. Ukrainian nationalists fought pro-Russian separatists throughout 2015.
The U.S. supports the Ukrainian fighters, some of which are neo-fascists, aligned with far-right ultra-nationalist parties like Svoboda and the Right Sector.
Ukraine and NATO characterize the war as the product of Russian aggression and illegal annexation of Crimea. Russia says it is responding to NATO encroachment. NATO originally said it would not expand eastward, but broke its promise.
Rubble and destruction in Gaza after Israel bombed the strip in its summer 2014 war

An uprising in the occupied Palestinian territories and Israel broke out in October 2015. More than 100 Palestinians were killed by Israeli soldiers from October to the beginning of December. Nineteen Israelis were killed in the same time period.
The Palestinian uprising has been widely characterized as the “Third Intifada,” or the “al-Aqsa Intifada,” referring to the Jerusalem mosque around which much of the tension has flared. Some far-right Israeli groups and religious extremists want to destroy al-Aqsa, which is the third-holiest site of Islam and is also an important Jewish site, known as the Temple Mount, and reserve it solely for Jews.
Yet the conflict is not religious at its core. Many Palestinians are protesting the continued Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and the Israeli siege on Gaza.
Israel has illegally occupied the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, since 1967, in contravention of international law and scores of U.N. resolutions. In 2005, Israel partially withdrew from Gaza, but subsequently imposed a blockade on the strip that the U.N. has declared illegal. Today, international legal institutions have ruled that Israel still maintains “effective control” over Gaza, controlling its waters, airfield, electromagnetic field, and population registry.
The U.S. has steadfastly backed Israel throughout these past five decades. The U.S. considers Israel one of its most important allies, and has given the country more than $100 billion in military aid since 1967.
Washington continues to give more than $3 billion in military to Israel every year, and the Obama administration has considered increasing this.
Rubble after a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan (Credit: Reuters/Haji Mujtaba) Reuters/Haji Mujtaba
The U.S. has waged a drone war in Pakistan for more than a decade. From 2004 to 2015, the U.S. drone war killed up to 4,000 people in Pakistan, one-fourth of whom could have been civilians, according to data compiled by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
The exact number of civilians killed in this war is unknown. According to the U.S. military, a “militant” is defined as a male of military age. This ambiguous definition makes it difficult to determine how many civilians are killed.
Secret government documents leaked to The Intercept by a whistleblower in 2015 show that 90 percent of people killed in U.S. drone strikes in a five-month period in provinces on Afghanistan’s eastern border with Pakistan were not the intended targets.
Former drone operators have said that the U.S. drone war in Pakistan is a “recruiting tool” for ISIS.
As a neighbor, Pakistan also plays an important role in the U.S. war in Afghanistan. The U.S. has maintained a relationship with the Pakistani government, ostensibly to fight extremist groups like the Taliban. At the same time, however, U.S. officials have admitted that Islamist extremist groups in Pakistan and Afghanistan receive funding from allied countries like Saudi Arabia.
In 2015, the U.S. continued its drone war in Pakistan, as well as in Yemen and Somalia.

ISIS’ use of beheading as a military tactic has attracted a lot of media attention, but drug gangs and far-right paramilitaries in Central America have used such tactics for years. Some scholars have even gone so far as to claim that Central American drug gangs and far-right paramilitaries are worse than ISIS.
The drug war in Mexico in particular reached a new height in 2015. The U.S. has long worked with the notoriously corrupt Mexican government to fight drug gangs. In the process, not only have civilians been killed; the Mexican government has itself committed atrocities.
43 student activists from Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers’ College were kidnapped in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico in September 2014. The government claimed the students were kidnapped by a drug gang, but many media reports have found government connections to the presumed mass killing.
Amnesty International blasted Mexican authorities in September 2015 for “a scandalous cover-up orchestrated by the highest levels of government.” The leading human rights organization called Ayotzinapa kidnappings “one of the worst human rights tragedies in Mexico’s recent history,” and said President Peña Nieto “will continue to be seen around the world as an enabler of horrors.”
Despite these documented atrocities, the U.S. gives well over $100 million per year in military and police assistance to the Mexican government, and even puts its own officials on the ground to work with it.
A February 2015 piece in the Nation asked, “Why Is the US Still Spending Billions to Fund Mexico’s Corrupt Drug War?”
In Colombia — where journalists, left-wing activists, and labor leaders are frequently killed, sometimes beheaded, by drug gangs and far-right paramilitaries — the U.S. also pursues similar policies.
The U.S. has a history of backing far-right paramilitaries and death squads in many Central American countries, particularly during the civil wars in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

The U.S. expanded military aid to the Nigerian government in 2015 and is working with it in its fight against Boko Haram, an extremist Islamist militia.
In 2015, Boko Haram declared loyalty to ISIS. Although more attention has been on ISIS, Boko Haram has carried out numerous massacres of civilians.
Boko Haram was in fact declared the deadliest terrorist group in 2015. In 2014, it killed more than 6,600 people, the vast majority civilians.
Although Boko Haram has committed ghastly atrocities, the Nigerian military is also known for kidnapping, torturing, and killing civilians.
Critics of the government say that, although Boko Haram is a brutal extremist militant group, it has in fact killed less people than the Nigerian military.

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped push for the NATO bombing of Libya in 2011, which overthrow dictator Muammar Qadhafi and destroyed the government, leaving a power vacuum that is yet to be filled.
Amid the chaos, ISIS has expanded into Libya.
Throughout 2015, a variety of militant groups fought for control of the country. The internationally recognized government in the east is fighting ISIS affiliates in the north, along with more moderate Muslim Brotherhood-aligned rebels in the northwest, and tribal militias in the southwest.
The project Libya Body Count, which derives figures from compiling media reports, documented more than 4,300 deaths in 2015 and 2014.
Although the war officially ended in 2011, the U.S. has backed the Libyan government in the east.
Clinton was grilled by Republicans in 2015 for her role in the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, but what was ignored was that downtown Benghazi is in ruins, and swaths of the city are under the control of Ansar al-Sharia, an extremist Salafi Islamist militia that the U.S. considers a terrorist organization.

There is so much proof that these wars are for increasing Corporate profits and these corporations are controlled by the Banking Cartel with the objective of amassing trillions of dollars of profits from the theft of these countries natural resources, the war material profits, and the political control of nations everywhere on earth, so their objective of global domination can be achieved. With this in mind, I cannot justify Americans participating in their own subjugation, and having no other thought but instant gratification from high paying war jobs.
I remember an old man about ready to retire who worked where I did that said war was wonderful for our economy, and it was all I could do to refrain from beating him senseless. If he had been my age I would have wound up in jail.
Therefore, consider that this atrocity is only possible by the Bankers controlling our government, and the people don’t object to being controlled as long as they take home a pay-check.
Now, tell me this is something to be proud of! Is America so self centered that this is an acceptable legacy to give future generations of Americans? We are training our children to have no consideration for human life, and the results are going to be children killing their parents for their personal gain. This self centered society we are building will sooner or later bite us in the ass. It is a preplanned destruction of our self control, and a pathway to hell on earth.
STAND UP AMERICAN’S, AND TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY AND SELF RESPECT. SEND THE BANKERS TO HELL INSTEAD!

After the San Bernardino shooting, the most pressing issue for progressives was closing the gun “loophole” that allows suspected terrorists to buy firearms. Specifically, they seem to think that people who have been flagged by the government, and placed on the no-fly list, should also be prevented from buying a gun. At first glance it makes sense. After all, why should suspected terrorists ever be allowed to buy a weapon?
However, it stops making sense the moment you take a look at what the no-fly list is, and what it entails. It also completely ignores the idea that people should never be punished for crimes they haven’t committed.
This is a list that contains millions of names. We don’t even know the exact number. We don’t know the country of origin for all these people. We don’t know how they got there, or what conditions and procedures were used to put them on the list. And we have no idea how anyone can ever get off the list. Everything about the no-fly list is a secret; and, more importantly, there is nothing judicial about it. There is no trial, judges or juries, and there is certainly no defending yourself. That’s because you don’t necessarily need to commit a crime to be on the list.
And that’s why banning gun ownership for individuals on the no-fly list should frighten gun owners. It creates a situation where you don’t have to do anything criminal to lose your rights. The government could determine any benign behavior to be a sign of terrorism, and promptly take your firearms. For all practical purposes, the Second Amendment would be dead.
However, it’s important to remember that the no-fly list ban isn’t alone. California recently passed a law that, while appearing unrelated to the no-fly list proposal, is actually operating with the same logic and intent.
A new California law scheduled to take effect Friday will allow the police to seize private, legally-owned weapons for up to three weeks without charges or allowing the citizen to contest the seizure.
AB1014 was passed last year in the wake of 2014’s Isla Vista shooting, where teenager Elliot Rodger went on a rampage near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, killing six people along with himself…
…Under the law, the factors a judge can consider in granting the restraining order include not only threats of violence, but also prior felony arrests (even without a conviction), evidence of alcohol abuse, and even the simple act of recently purchasing a gun or ammunition.
Once granted, police can use the restraining order to confiscate all of a person’s guns and ammunition, and the person is also barred from buying or possessing guns and ammo for the duration of the order. A full court hearing must then be heard within three weeks. At that hearing, a judge will be able to extend the restraining order for an entire year.
For now, this law won’t amount to anything for most gun owners. But it does set a dangerous new precedent. They’ve finally established the idea that it is okay to confiscate a weapon from someone who has never been convicted of a crime. It’s now perfectly okay in California, to violate someone’s fundamental rights based on nothing but vague suspicions and accusations.
But this probably won’t end with California. What we’re really seeing here is a two-pronged attack against the Second Amendment. Laws like this are an attempt to violate our rights at the state level, while the no-fly list proposals will be used to justify warrantless confiscations at the federal level. After failing to restrict gun ownership time and time again, the gun grabbers have found a new underhanded path for violating the Second Amendment.

I note all the poor people rushing in and pleading, oh, no, no, no! We have to participate in the electoral process!
The electoral process of what? A private, for-profit, mostly foreign owned commercial corporation run amok?
They say, we have to get so-and-so elected and the Republicans have to take back the Senate….They don’t yet perceive the insanity of what they are saying and doing.
We’ve been playing this set up board game for a hundred years. There’s no difference between “Democrats” and “Republicans” anymore, if there ever was. Both are representatives of criminality, corruption, incompetence, and enslavement of real people to serve their corporation. They are the two cattle prods, one right, one left.
It’s important to understand that the Roosevelt’s, Teddy and FDR, set up this mental box with malice aforethought and were also
the authors of much of the semantic deceit and fraud that has engulfed America for three generations. Should it surprise anyone to
learn that they were also at the bottom of the development of the present “two party system”?
Will it sound strange to you that both modern “national” political parties got their start in Wisconsin, of all places — and that neither of these parties bear any resemblance to their historical antecedents?
For example, did you know that after the Civil War, it was the Democrats that blocked black Americans from being able to own land and vote, and it was the Republicans who championed that cause and finally pushed it through?
Perhaps you will wonder why such an odd thing exists?
Because in 1848 Wisconsin received a large number of German immigrants who were cast out of Europe for being “Freethinkers and Communists” — a result of the 1848 Workers Rebellion. These people brought their foreign ideas to Wisconsin, settled in,
and promptly began setting up the favorite implement of all Communists — a divide and conquer strategy. All things are dualistic in this world and people naturally think of things as “good” or “bad”, so it is relatively easy to use this unconscious prejudice and default in our logic systems to our detriment. Unscrupulous politicians just set up “the poles” — or as in this case, “the parties”— and they just drive the sheep from one side of the spectrum to the other.
In very short order they have us wasting our time and energy and passion taking actions which get us nowhere.
Meanwhile, they are pursuing their real agenda of fraud, more deception, and enslavement.
As if this were not obvious enough, in recent years they have instituted the use of “Diebold Voting Machines” — so they don’t even have to worry about the inconvenient evidence of real election results posed by paper ballots. They can just pay off the private companies and union workers who build and service these machines, then sit back and grin and “wait for the election results to come in”.
Are Americans really as stupid as Barack H. Obama supposes?
Please note that even without these nefarious provisions, the ‘votes” of “voters” decide nothing. They are just popularity polls, serving to tell the slavemasters what “sells” to the sheep. “Electors” are the only ones who decide “elections”.
In fact, “Voter Registration” is one of the chief means these rotters use to claim that we are “US citizens” and subject to them and their corporate rules. Any time that you see the words “registration” or “application” be aware that you are giving up something precious in exchange for something either worthless or downright damaging. When you “register” as a “voter”, you automatically identify yourself as someone claiming slave status, and you give up your birthright to function as an “elector”.
So, all of you with ears to hear, get busy and write to the local “Voter Registration Office” and tell them that you made a mistake.
You aren’t a “US citizen” nor a “U.S. Citizen” — you are an American State Citizen — and you rescind your signature on their records and forms accordingly.
If you continue to feel any unreasoning urge to vote in their private corporate elections, please be advised that Section II of the Fourteenth Amendment of their most recent public charter known as the “Constitution for the United States of America” makes it illegal for anyone who is not a “US citizen” — that is, a federal employee, civil or active duty military, Negro, foreign welfare recipient, or natural born inhabitant of a “federal state” like Puerto Rico or “enclave” like Washington, DC — to vote in THEIR elections.
You’ve most likely been breaking their law all these years and never knew it, and they have gladly let you do it because it gives them an excuse to lay claim to you and your assets and boss you around and hypothecate their debts against your credit and all sorts of other juicy advantages to them at your expense. It also gives them an excuse to arrest you any time they like and charge you for this “crime” secretly in their very own corporate tribunals. What could be more convenient?
So not only do you need to tear up those “Voter Registration Cards” and stop being fooled by all the “political process” hurrah —that is, drop out of political parties, because they, too, are strictly associated with the corporation masquerading as “your”government — you can also stop giving money to THEIR candidates and wasting time spinning your wheels.
If you want the abuse and theft and deceit to be over, you have to re-create your own PUBLIC offices on the land jurisdiction of your States.
Run for THOSE offices. Support THOSE candidates. Just like we have to rebuild the American Court system and the American monetary system, we have to rebuild the American government institutions — because, surprise, surprise — the banks took over the corporation providing you with “governmental services” a long time ago, and they haven’t been doing a good job for you.
A Republic doesn’t run itself and it can’t depend on outside “help”.
If you want to be free, now is the time.
Stop being hoodwinked by these fraud artists and driven “like dumb driven cattle”.
Just say, “No!
It is past time for the internet Patriots to wake up to the truth, learn it, and revise their commentary to fight it with all their might. This means educate the sheep non stop until they are as outraged as we all should be. We need to get this information out to a hundred million people ASAP. Why would an entire Nation accept a “for profit” Corporation for a government? There is only one way for things to change for the better, and that is for a hundred million people to read this: You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Judge Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher

I get dozens and sometimes hundreds of letters, messages, emails, etc. from people wanting help with court problems– all in foreign courts that have no natural jurisdiction and no right to be here applying their “law” to our people.
The Root Problem is that thanks to fraud and falsification of public records, our people have been registered as their people without anyone’s knowledge or consent. This self-interested fraud on the part of governmental services corporations needs to be recognized for what it is and forthrightly rebutted.
Deny them jurisdiction over you and you deny them any ability to proceed — regardless of the issue be it foreclosure or child custody or driving without a license.
You were born on the land of one of the American states. You are by birthright “one of the free sovereign and independent people of the United States” and NOT an “inhabitant” — a British Crown Subject merely “residing” here. Both these political statuses are clearly defined in The Definitive Treaty of Peace known as the Treaty of Paris 1783 ending the Revolutionary War, Article 3.
But… Within hours of your birth you were defrauded of your birthright when your Mother was coerced into unknowingly registering your “birth” as a British Crown Subject instead of “one of the free sovereign and independent people of the United States”.
This in turn creates the “presumption” that like all British Crown Subjects you are merely here to provide “essential governmental services” (Constitution of 1789, Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2) and are obligated to obey their corporate statutory “law”.
And that is how and why they presume against you and tax you and carry out all their crimes against you.
How do you rebut this?
You identify yourself as the living man or woman appearing in the flesh, one of the free sovereign and independent people of the United States and not an inhabitant as defined by the Definitive Treaty of Peace 1783, one of those owed “essential governmental services” under Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2 of the 1789 Constitution, guaranteed your right of expatriation by the Expatriation Act of 1868, the retention of your native political status by the Geneva Convention Protocols of 1949, Laws of War, Volume II, Article 3, and the right of Self-Declaration guaranteed by the United Nations Universal Right of Self-Declaration.
Then further inform the court that the essential government services you are owed do not include defrauding you, miss-administering your estate, or mischaracterizing you as an inhabitant of the District of Columbia or any “federal Territory” whatsoever.
Then clearly state that you are the only one having any first hand knowledge of your nature, intentions, motivations, will or any other matter of fact concerning you and that every word dropping from you lips is to be understood by the court as a Matter of Fact and all else that anyone may say is only immaterial hearsay and presumption.
Then proceed to ream them brand new paper bung holes about whatever it is they are bothering you about–
You are exempt and any vessels in commerce operated in your name are tax pre-paid. You are a Priority Creditor of the court, the banks and the corporations they employ, having the absolute right to offset any thing you may owe them against all that they already owe you and properly demanding the benefit of your exemption.
Your biological children are your creation, accepted and supported by you, belonging only to you, and are not entrusted to anyone or any thing else by you; and that is a Matter of Fact not subject to any fictitious claim or interpretation by the court.
You received no “loan” and retain all security interest provided contingent on the receipt of a loan; you require the return of the Promissory Note and Incomplete Mortgage Agreement paperwork. If anyone asks, reply that the Promissory Note is more than nine months old, the transaction was never completed, no loan was received by you and the whole process is void for fraud, including any presumption of a valid security interest. Any check received from the bank was merely a transfer of your own credit and the bank cannot show any other source of funds for the transaction.
Driving without a license?
You were traveling for private purposes and who can say otherwise?
You are stating Matters of Fact known to you on a firsthand basis. All else is hearsay and presumption.
And to all the above and more you may add that the court’s presumption of jurisdiction over you and your property are in violation of both the Public Law and The Constitution and will not be respected as anything but attempted personage and fraud against one of their Priority Creditors and Benefactors.
Get your backs up. Tell it like it is. Let the facts be plainly stated. Remember who you are and tell the “court” off. Be polite– but ice cold and determined. What they are doing is a rude and unconscionable affront to you and a false claim being made against you and your property? Be appropriately outraged and hold your head high. Peer down at your miscreant employee sitting on that bench and demand to know who he thinks he is and what he thinks he is doing?

I assume that sooner or later I will have a confrontation with what is euphemistically called law enforcement, and will most likely be murdered for lack of memory recall, as I have no intention of letting them arrest me. Most all of the uniformed tyrants would much rather kill someone rather than be humiliated back at the station for letting someone convince them they have no jurisdiction over me. Such as this is the real state of the union. Even if I could recall the exact words to use in my defense, can you imagine the average cop being intelligent enough to understand and accept he has been miss-informed for his entire life or a bailiff who refuses to obey a judge? Stay armed and capable everywhere you go. If the worst they can do is murder me, I consider that a gift because living under their tyranny is hell on earth.

For those just now waking up—- the Federal Reserve is not and has never been any part of our government. It is a mostly-foreign private association of banks operating as a criminal cartel on our shores. The Fed was invited here by other criminals impersonating our lawful Congress of the United States more than a century ago. The details of how this happened are presented in our sworn and published affidavit of probable cause, “You Know Something Is Wrong When….An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” and The Creature from Jekyll Island.
Second, at the end of the Second World War the Allies set up the “Global Debt Facility” as a depository with the intention — at least on paper — of using this international collateral for the benefit of Mankind.
So much for good intentions and public relations. Of course, much more sinister and self-interested agendas were in play—one of which was the rape and pillaging of America and the dispossession of its people via fraud, misrepresentation, and deceit.
Attached you will find nine (9) important documents that establish at least one (1) of the several versions of the Minesfield Crossover Agreements alleged to exist and referenced by Ms. Hudes, and also a couple pages from the Secret Book of Redemption. This extraordinary work explains how the Federal Reserve self-sabotaged its fiduciary responsibilities by introducing deliberate errors in the issuance of bonds and other documents so as to provide a predetermined excuse for not paying legitimate debts when they came due.
The Federal Reserve has also been instrumental in the Federal Reserve Note Scam and the enslavement of Americans mischaracterized as British Crown subjects.
A “Federal Reserve Note” like any “note” is a Promise to Pay—-like a bond is also a promise to pay at a later date. This particular “note” was given a very special, very beneficial backing— members of Congress acting in treasonous self-interest established a fixed “dollar for dollar” exchange rate between the “Federal Reserve Note” and our actual United States Dollar.
As a result, the Federal Reserve Banks were enabled to pawn off paper I.O.U.s in exchange for our actual gold and silver—-and also for our unpaid labor and other resources.
To avoid paying these I.O.U.s they simply collapsed the old “Federal Reserve System, Inc.” and entered it into bankruptcy. All our gold and silver was stolen and transported overseas in “equitable exchange” for worthless paper, and then even the debt represented by those I.O.U.s was discharged in bankruptcy—which should have never been allowed.
That answers the question of where all the gold in Fort Knox went.
Bill Clinton had the last of our reserves shipped out during his final years in office. He also pretended to have the authority to sell off our homes, businesses, roads, bridges, and other public infrastructure to foreign investors. Literally billions of people globally plus 390 million Americans have been victimized and defrauded. Governments all over the world are looking to us to make good on all the private Federal Reserve Notes and all the bogus sales of our property that these con men pretending to represent us have sold to investors in our names. Literally.
That is who and what the Federal Reserve is—- an international crime syndicate brought here and allowed to run rampant by the British Monarch who is supposed to be our Trustee on the Highs Seas and Inland Waterways, expedited by our own employees and by other people obligated to serve us in Good Faith by every treaty, Constitution, Public Law and trust obligation there is.
The primary beneficiaries of all this criminality are in order of importance: the Pope, the Queen, Jacob Rothschild, and several corporations including SERCO.
The Pope agreed to forgive all “debts” arising from these false claims and agreed to return all American assets to the Americans they belong to. He has also taken other very important steps toward remedy.
The Queen is not eager to give up her ill-gotten gains and neither is Jacob Rothschild, who is still smirking and bobbing, confident that he and his criminal empire will escape the wrath of the world’s people and trick them yet again.
There’s only one big stumbling block. They can pay off any country on Earth except one. They can’t possibly pay back the Americans, who have been the biggest victims.
It simply can’t be done.
There isn’t enough gold or silver to pay back what they owe us already.
That’s why from their perspective, they have to do one of two things—- (1) work a final fraud scheme to gain immunity from prosecution and release from their debt to us; or, (2) kill off the Americans to reduce the amount of debt they owe and collect on the million dollar life insurance policies they’ve placed on each one of us. WW3 anyone?
But now they have just realized something rather crucial.
As long as there is one American left alive anywhere on the planet, that American can claim back absolutely everything owed to all Americans since this fraud scheme began— and tracking down and murdering every American worldwide doesn’t seem like a viable option.
They have always counted on their control of the “US Congress” as their final playing card. They haven’t counted on us pointing out that the “US Congress” isn’t our Congress.
Karen Hudes thought she had everything nicely done up in time for Christmas. She had cronies all lined up to accept our share of the gold from the Global Debt Facility. Once they accepted the gold— “in our behalf”—and accepted all the immunities and guarantees and releases hidden in the fine print, her bosses would be off the hook, free and clear, able to claim immunity and keep all our assets, too.
Luckily for the “free sovereign and independent people of the United States” the federal toadies don’t represent us in this matter and have no basis to claim that they do.
As a Trustee, Karen Hudes and the other 188 Trustees of the Global Debt Facility are in a bind. The Americans are owed their share of the gold in the Global Debt Facility. The Federal toadies have no basis to accept it for us. It isn’t in our interest to accept any fine print that gives the Queen and Rothschild and their cronies a “Home Free and Keep Our Assets” card.
And we are in no mood for Trojan Horses.
Those who have been listening to the exchanges between Karen Hudes and I have repeatedly heard her warnings about “World War III” — any such thing would be precipitated by the efforts of the criminals to assert false claims against us and our assets and their refusal to pay their own debts.
By now the entire world knows that the Americans have been the innocent victims of fiduciary trust fraud on an unimaginable scale, and millions of Americans know it, too. The Russians and Chinese know who to blame. If the Russians and Chinese want gold, they aren’t coming after us. Our pockets have been picked clean. Nobody is going to blame us for the lies of the Federal United States. It’s all too apparent who the criminals have been and it is also too apparent that the American people have suffered along with the rest of the world.
Ms. Hudes would have the world believe that I am working for some Evil Network of Global Control and am single-handedly holding up the Global Reset and preventing poor people all over the world from receiving their fair share of the Global Debt Facility gold. I say that Ms. Hudes is accusing me of what she is doing herself. She is trying to gain immunity for her bosses—some way that they can wash their hands and avoid being responsible for their insurmountable debts to us and the rest of humanity. It is their refusal to come clean that is holding up distribution of Global Debt Facility assets.
They, not we, are keeping the gold hostage, trying to use it as leverage for themselves, and trying to trick us all into accepting a bowl of porridge for our birthright.
Under their current plan the same corrupt politicians retain control and all the benefit of the gold goes to prop up national currencies which are nothing but a breeding ground for manipulation, fraud, and profit for the usual suspects.
The only benefit to the people Ms. Hudes can suggest is that they will no longer have to pay interest to the banks on the money their governments mint or print. It will mean the end of usury she says.
Pray tell, why should anyone have to pay interest to the banks in the first place?
Nobody’s currency has been backed by the banks. It has all been backed by the labor of the people and the value of their country’s land, commodity, and product assets. The interest we’ve all paid to the Federal Reserve –for example– was nothing but another gratuitous fraud scheme, a charge for a non-existent service.
So we just mindlessly donate the gold from the Global Debt Facility to the same criminals who have enslaved and defrauded us and in exchange we get what? The cessation of yet another fraudulent claim?
How does that benefit any poor people? Instead, it benefits the banks. They realize that we are looking at them and questioning their existence and examining their records and their operations and it is just a matter of time before someone says, “Why are we paying interest for a non-existent service?”
Another recurring theme in the dialogue is that I and by implication, “the Americans”, are being selfish and unreasonable, and that’s why everything is held up. The inference is that I am keeping all this gold from benefiting the poor people of the world and standing in the way of President Marco’s Prayer— but the poor people aren’t slated to get any benefit anyway. The banks are just colluding to pay the banks again and making sure that everyone has new poker chips to play in another round of “Global Economy” still completely controlled and manipulated by the same Corrupt Old Bastards Club that brought us to this end.
How about a totally different result? Something that actually helps all the people of the world and permanently solves the problem of idolatry and dishonesty being enshrined at the heart of our economic system?
To the extent that we need a planetary-wide currency system to facilitate trade, this can be accomplished by a simple numeric accounting system. No banks are required. None at all. Just a user friendly accounting system similar to an ATM that accepts deposits, transfers, and withdrawals, a multi-tier computer system similar to the internet devoted to financial transactions, and geeks to troubleshoot.
To the extent that we need to provide for the basic needs of all people this can be accomplished by the same numeric system by providing basic living stipends sufficient to pay for food, water, housing, sanitation, transportation, education, and health care deposited into each individual account. Mankind can finally be set free from want and fear of want. No more starving children. No more charity drives. No more slavery. No more anxiety. No more reason for war and conflict.
Why is this possible? Because money is a symbol standing for the value of our labor and the Earth’s natural resources that we are all heir to. Labor–which includes our creativity and inventiveness–and natural resources, are the only sources of wealth on this planet. There is already more than enough value vested in our energy and the Earth’s resources to back every possible legitimate need anyone could ever have. There has never been any reason for people to suffer and go without basic needs.
To the extent that we need to provide for new investments, this can be accomplished by giving everyone their own investment account with an additional amount credited to it each year—and let people loan their investment money without interest to any worthy lawful endeavor they support.
We know that this is a difficult concept for people who have been trained to “work for money” to grasp, but money is an arbitrary product whether it is made from gold or plastic or glass, whether it is in the form of a coin or an accounting ledger. In the past we’ve made money of different kinds and let these compete like different varieties of chocolate bars— the Dollar versus the Ruble versus the Yen— it is time to move beyond that.
People have been wrongly taught to put their faith in money and its external forms, to idolize it as a false god, when in fact, in an honest monetary system, its a hum-drum daily tool.
Those who control the production of money and who determine its accounting are all —-as the present circumstance proves and as 8000 years of history provides—- universally and inexorably corrupted by it and reduced to being dishonest profit-mongering white collar thieves.
Has the lesson been learned yet? Have we all suffered long enough? Senselessly enough? Is it time to do away with banking— and go to an Open Account System?
There is no reason for any child growing up in any place on this planet to go without food, water, shelter, and anything else that they need. Nor is there any reason for any retiree to go without a solid level of security, comfort, and enjoyment in their old age. The senseless greed of small-minded and smaller-hearted men has perpetuated the Myth of Scarcity in the midst of plenty–and it is nothing but a self-serving blasphemy against Nature and God.
There is also no reason for our money to be outside our local control. No reason for gleaming bank towers overwhelming the skylines of our cities. No reason for the Christine LaGardes of this world waving their hands and blankly discussing how they are going to seize the retirement accounts of senior citizens. No reason for Paul Ryan mindlessly grinning like a Halloween pumpkin as he discusses all the “necessary cuts” to Medicare and other services that people have already paid for umpteen times over. There is no “National Debt”. It’s all hokum, Smoke and mirrors promoted by thieves. We have only believed in “money” because we have been kept ignorant and deprived of this critical tool by force, and we now fully realize that this Ultimate Fraud has been served to us at the hands of vicious self-serving criminals who profit by it.
There must be a great cleansing of our minds and our hearts, a sucking in of new vision like a rush of air to our lungs. Any hope that the bankers and politicians have had that this would be business as usual —just a wrap up song and dance to finalize the Greatest Fraud in History— will be sadly disappointed. The Americans are awake— fully awake. The doors have been opened that no man can shut.
We are going to demand our share of the Global Debt Facility gold free and clear of any strings. We are going to liquidate the corporations that have acted as crime syndicates on our shores. We are going to lead a profound and permanent reform of the world monetary system. We will be cleaning out vacated public offices from sea to shining sea. We will be reforming and replacing the courts. We will be amending and updating The Constitution and putting an end to any outdated and prejudicial association with Great Britain allowing it to meddle in our affairs. If we get any offer of violence whatsoever from those responsible for these crimes committed against us and the other innocent people of the world, we will join with the Chinese and the Russians and everyone else who has been defrauded by these thugs and we will make sure that the promoters of these crimes never have the opportunity to harm anyone again.
Let that be a promise heard round the world and especially in Washington, DC.
Documents mentioned will be added to this article later tonight.

The Mind Unleashed
On November 28th, 2015, Alaska State Judge Anna von Reitz (Anna Maria Riezinger) addressed an open letter to all federal agents, including the FBI and US Marshals to arrest Congress, the President and the Secretary of the Treasury. She goes into incredible detail on the fraud that has been committed. Anyone who reads this is sure to learn at least something. Below is the text and you can open the original pdf here. This has been encouraged to be shared widely.
Anna Maria Riezinger (Anna Von Reitz)
November 28, 2015 Big Lake,
Alaska Dear Federal Agents:
I am addressing this letter in this way, because it is my understanding that it will be read by members of both the FBI and the US Marshals Service. It is also my understanding that you have available for examination a wet-ink signed copy of the illustrated affidavit of probable cause entitled “You Know Something Is Wrong When…..An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” as back-up reference and evidence.
Since the publication of the affidavit a plethora of new supporting documentation and evidence has come to light. We found, for example, that on June 30, 1864, the members of Congress acting as the Board of Directors of a private, mostly foreign-owned corporation doing business as “The United States of America, Incorporated” changed the meaning of “state”, “State” and “United States” to mean “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation”. Like the 1862 change of the meaning of the word “person” to mean “corporation” cited in our affidavit, these special coded meanings of words render a drastically different picture of the world around us.
It turns out that your “personal bank account” is actually a “corporate bank account”. The “Colorado State Court” is actually the “Colorado District of Columbia Municipal Corporation Court”. If you are shocked to learn these facts, you are not alone. So are millions of other Americans. These changes were made 150 years ago and tucked away in reams of boring meeting minutes and legalistic gobbledygook meant to be applied only to the internal workings of a private governmental services corporation and its employees.
There was no public announcement, just as there was no public announcement or explanation when Congress created “municipal citizenship” known as “US citizenship” in 1868. Properly, technically, even to this day, this form of “citizenship” applies only to those born in the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and other Insular States, so there was no real reason to educate the general public about the topic. As Congress was secretively using the labor and the private property assets of these “citizens” as collateral backing the corporate debts of “The United States of America, Inc.” there was plenty of reason to obscure this development.
At the end of the Civil War it would have been very unpopular to reveal that they were simply changing gears from private sector slave ownership to public sector slave ownership. You may be surprised to learn that slavery was not abolished by the Thirteenth or any other Amendment to any constitution then or now. Instead, slavery was redefined as the punishment meted out to criminals. Look it up and read it for yourselves. It remains perfectly legal to enslave criminals, and it was left to Congress to define who the criminals were, because Congress was given plenary power over the District of Columbia and its citizenry by the original Constitution of the Republic and could do whatever it liked within the District and the Washington, DC Municipalities.
A child picking dandelions on the sidewalk could be arbitrarily defined as a criminal and enslaved for life by the renegade Congress functioning as the government of the District of Columbia and as the Board of Directors for the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation, but for starters, Congress simply defined “US citizens” as debt slaves under the 14th Amendment of their corporation’s articles and by-laws—-which they deceptively named the “Constitution of the United States of America”.
The actual Constitution was and still is called “The Constitution for the united States of America”, but most people untrained in the Law and trusting what they believed to be their government didn’t notice the difference between “The Constitution for the united States of America” and the “Constitution of the United States of America”. Are you beginning to see a pattern of deliberate deceit and self-interest and double-speak and double-dealing? And are you also beginning to catch the drift—the motivation—behind it? Let’s discuss the concept of “hypothecation of debt”.
This little gem was developed by the bankers who actually owned and ran the governmental services corporations doing business as “The United States of America, Inc.” and as the “United States, Incorporated”. When you hypothecate debt against someone or against some asset belonging to someone else, you simply claim that they agreed to stand as surety for your debt — similar to cosigning a car loan — and as long as you make your payments, nobody is any the wiser. Normally, it’s not possible for us to just arbitrarily claim that someone is our surety for debt without proof of consent, but that is exactly what Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the Conference of Governors did in March of 1933.
They named all of us and all our property as surety standing good for the debts of their own bankrupt governmental services corporation during bankruptcy reorganization—-and got away with it by claiming that they were our “representatives” and that we had delegated our authority to them to do this “for” us. The exact date and occasion when this happened and where it is recorded, is given in our affidavit. In order to pull this off, however, they had to allege that we were all “US citizens”, and therefore, all subject to the plenary power of Congress acting as an oligarchy ruling over the District of Columbia and the Federal Territories.
They did this by abusing the public trust and creating and registering millions of foreign situs trusts named after each of us. Under their own diversity of citizenship rules, corporations are considered to be “US citizens”. So they created all these foreign situs trusts as franchises of their own bankrupt corporation, used our names styled like this: John Quincy Adams—-and placed commercial liens against our names as chattel owned by their corporation and standing as surety for its debts. A group of thugs elected to political office grossly transgressed against the American people and the American states and committed the crime of personage against each and every one of us without us ever being aware of it.
They couldn’t enslave us, but they could enslave a foreign situs trust named after us— that we conveniently didn’t know existed— and by deliberately confusing this “thing” with us via the misuse of our given names, they could bring charges against what appeared to be us and our private property in their very own corporate tribunals. And so the fleecing of America began in earnest. The hirelings had our credit cards, had stolen our identities, and were ready to begin a crime spree unheralded in human history.
They claimed that we all knew about this arrangement and consented to it, because we “voluntarily” gave up our gold when FDR sent his henchmen around to collect it—-when as millions of Americans can attest, people gave up their gold in preference to being shot or having to kill federal agents. They chose life for everyone concerned over some pieces of metal, and for that, they are to be honored; unfortunately, their decision gave the rats responsible an excuse to claim that Americans wanted to leave the gold standard and wanted the “benefits” of this New Deal in “equitable exchange” for their gold, their identities, the abuse of their good names as bankrupts and debtors, the loss of allodial title to their land and homes, and their subjection as slaves to the whims of Congress.
According to them—that is, those who benefited from this gross betrayal of the public trust— we all voluntarily left the Republic and the guarantees of the actual Constitution behind, willingly subjected ourselves to Congressional rule, donated all our assets including our labor and property to the Public Charitable Trust (set up after the Civil War as a welfare trust for displaced plantation slaves), and agreed to live as slaves owned by the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation in exchange for what? Welfare that we paid for ourselves. Social Security that we paid for ourselves.
The criminality of the “US Congress” and the “Presidents” acting since 1933 is jaw-droppingly shocking. Their abuse of the trust of the American people is even worse. They have portrayed this circumstance as a political choice instead of an institutionalized fraud scheme, and they have “presumed” that we all went along with it and agreed to it without complaint. Thus, they have been merrily and secretively having us declared “civilly dead” as American State Citizens the day we are born, and entering a false registration claiming that we are “US Citizens” instead. We are told, when we wake up enough to ask, that we are free to choose our political status.
We don’t have to serve as debt slaves. We can go back and reclaim our guaranteed Republican form of government and our birthright status if we want to—- but that requires a secret process in front of the probate court and expatriation from the Federal United States to the Continental United States and all sorts of voo-doo in backrooms that can only be pursued by the few and the knowledgeable and the blessed. Everyone else has to remain as a debt slave and chattel serving whatever corporation bought the latest version of corporate “persona” named after us.
So let me ask you, as members of the FBI and as US Marshals—- does this sound like something you want to be involved with enforcing on innocent people, or does it sound like something you want to end as expeditiously as possible? The frauds that took root in the wake of the Civil War and which blossomed in the 1930’s have come to their final fruition.
Employees of the “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation” and its United Nations successors are being used as jack-booted thugs to throw Americans into privately owned “federal correctional facilities” when those who need correction—- the members of the American Bar Association and the euphemistically named and privately owned and operated “DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE”—continue to ignore the fact that Americans DO have a choice and that by the millions we are demanding our freedom from all these pathetic false commercial claims and presumptions.
We are standing up before the whole world and telling these privately owned “governmental services corporations” to go bankrupt like any other corporation that doesn’t do its job and mind its budget. These entities deserve to go bankrupt and worse. They have spent money and credit that was never theirs to spend. They have defrauded millions if not billions of innocent people and they have prevented Americans from claiming their birthrights for far too long.
These people— the members of Congress and the various “Presidents” of the numerous “United States” corporations — have acted as criminals. They deserve to be recognized as such. The members of the American Bar Association have attempted to wash their hands while profiting from the situation and obstructing justice. They stand around shrugging and saying, “Well, it’s a political choice. We don’t have anything to say about that.”—–yet at the same time, they refuse to correct the probate records to reflect our chosen change of political status when we plainly identify ourselves and enunciate our Will for them.
They, too, deserve to be recognized as self-interested criminals and accomplices to identity theft, credit fraud, and worse— which is why we have recently issued a $279 trillion dollar commercial obligation lien against the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association, and the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. All our assets— our bodies, homes, businesses, lands, and labor—have been signed over into the “Public Charitable Trust” by con men merely claiming to represent us. Then, when we object to their lies and entrapment, they use the same fraud against us as their excuse for bringing more false claims against us and throwing us in jail. Enough is enough.
The British Monarch and the Lords of the Admiralty have promoted this fraud against us at the same time they have claimed to be our trustees, allies and friends in perpetuity. It’s time to clear the way for us to politely and peaceably exit from any presumption that we are or ever were “US citizens”, willing participants in the “Public Charitable Trust”, or willing “sureties” for the debts of any private bank-run governmental services corporation merely calling itself the United States of Something or Other.
We repudiate any presumption of private municipal citizenship or obligation to the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation or any successor thereof, and demand an immediate and permanent correction of the civil record to reflect our birthright status as American State Citizens, nunc pro tunc.
As for you, as “Federal Agents”, you have a lot to think about. For starters— who really pays your paycheck? Is it the goons in Washington, DC? Or does it all come from the American people you are supposed to be serving? Do you believe for one moment that anyone just lined up and gave their gold to FDR voluntarily? Do you believe that anyone gave away all their property and the guarantees of the actual Constitution for the “privilege” of paying for Social Security? No? Wake up and smell the java and start doing your real jobs. If anyone complains—arrest him.
We are reopening the American Common Law Courts expressly for the purpose of settling disputes related to living people and their property assets in excess of $20 as mandated by the Seventh Amendment. We, the American people, are the ones holding absolute civil authority upon the land of the Continental United States, and we give you permission to arrest the members of Congress, the President, the Secretary of the Treasury, and any other politician or appointee pretending to speak for us so as to enslave us and bring false claims against us via this institutionalized fraud scheme.
We want it recognized for what it is and dismantled and repudiated tout de suite. Any court that is caught arresting and prosecuting Americans under the presumptions just described to you— such as bringing charges against foreign situs trusts with names styled like this: John Quincy Adams, or Cestui Que Vie trusts styled like this: JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, or Puerto Rican public transmitting utilities styled like this: JOHN Q. ADAMS—-it is your responsibility to make sure that any individuals being addressed by these courts were actually born in the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, or one of the other Insular States and that they are not ignorant American State Citizens being falsely registered and railroaded.
Do you understand? Is it now completely clear who the criminals are? Your actual employers and benefactors are being attacked and defrauded by criminals pretending to act as their elected representatives and accomplices in black robes who are serving as enforcers of this fraud for profit. This has been happening right under your noses. This whole circumstance has escaped broad scale public understanding because it was being pursued by private governmental services corporations owned and operated by international banking cartels who claimed that these “private arrangements” were none of the public’s business, despite the grotesque and far-ranging impact these cozy understandings have had upon the people of this and many other countries.
Let it be perfectly clear to you that the business of these private corporations has become our business because they have operated in violation of their charters, in violation of the treaties allowing their existence, and in violation of the National Trust. The American Bar Association and the Internal Revenue Service have both been owned and operated as private foreign bill collectors and trust administrators by Northern Trust, Inc., in violent conflict of interest. They are not professional associations, non-profits, nor units of government. They are con artists and privateers whose licenses expired as of September 1, 2013.
The United States Marshals Service is enabled to act in the capacity of constitutionally – sworn Federal Marshals and we invoke their office and service as such; failure to accept the public office means rejection of all authority related to us. The same may be said of the FBI. Either you do your jobs as constitutionally sworn public officers, or you act as private mall cops in behalf of the offending corporations and under color of law when you pretend to have any public authority or function.
This is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Judge Anna Maria Riezinger
Alaska State Superior Court

Submitted by Tyler Durden
Most Iraqis, be they civilians, military personnel, or government officials, do not trust Americans.
At a base level, that makes all kinds of sense. After all, the US did launch what amounted to a unilateral invasion of the country just a little over a decade ago, and when it was all said and done, a dictator was deposed but it’s not entirely clear that Iraqis are better off for it.
ISIS controls key cities including the Mosul, the country’s second largest, and security is a daily concern for the populace. The Americans are still seen – rightly – as occupiers, and Washington’s unwillingness inability to effectively counter ISIS has created a culture of suspicion in which most Iraqis believe the US is in cahoots with the militants for what WaPo described as “a variety of pernicious reasons that have to do with asserting U.S. control over Iraq, the wider Middle East and, perhaps, its oil.”
Some of the distrust, the US contends, is fostered by Iran. Tehran wields considerable influence both within the Iraqi military and in political circles in Baghdad. When Ash Carter announced that the US was set to send an “expeditionary targeting force” to the country to assist in raids on Islamic State targets, PM Haider al-Abadi flatly rejected the proposal, saying that “Iraq does not need foreign ground combat forces on Iraqi land.” Abadi rejected a similar Pentagon trial balloon involving Apaches helicopters last month.
Meanwhile, Tehran’s Shiite militias threatened to attack any US soldiers operating on Iraqi soil. “We will chase and fight any American force deployed in Iraq. Any such American force will become a primary target for our group. We fought them before and we are ready to resume fighting,” a spokesman for Kata’ib Hezbollah said. Similarly, influential Shiite lawmakers like the infamous Hakim al-Zamili have called on Abadi to seek direct military intervention from Moscow to expel foreign forces from the country.
Now, in the latest example of just how tenuous Washington’s grip on the region has become, the Iraqi parliament’s Security and Defense Committee is calling for the review and cancellation of Baghdad’s security agreement with the US.
“The government and parliament need to review the agreement signed with the United States on security because the United States does not seriously care about its fulfillment,” committee member Hamid al-Mutlaq, a senior Sunni lawmaker told Sputnik on Wednesday. “We demand that it be annulled,” he added.
Who will fill the void you ask? You guessed it:
“Soon, a meeting [of the committee] with Prime Minister Haider Abadi will be held, at which we will propose cooperating with Russia in carrying out airstrikes against IS and in the fight against terrorism in Iraq,” another committee member said earlier this week.
Recall that this is precisely what we said would happen once we learned in September that Russia, Iran, Iraq, and Syria had set up a joint intelligence sharing cell in Baghdad.
It was clear from the beginning that Tehran saw an opportunity to consolidate its power in Iraq and preserve its influence in Syria by convincing Vladimir Putin that Russia could replace the US as Mid-East superpower puppet master by helping Tehran to defeat the insurgency in Syria and boot the US from Iraq once and for all. Moscow will of course get a warm reception from Iraqi lawmakers thanks to the fact that many MPs are loyal to Iran.
This makes sense logistically as well. Once the Russians and Iranians have retaken Aleppo (which admittedly is taking a while), they can push east towards Raqqa and from there, move straight across the border, effectively pinching ISIS between an advance from the west and Iran’s Shiite militias already operating in Iraq. Of course that will entail some measure of cooperation with the US, France, Britain, and, once in Iraq, the Peshmerga. It is at that point that Washington’s resolve when it comes to preserving whatever charade is being perpetrated in Raqqa will be put to the ultimate test.
In the meantime, it will be interesting to see how the US responds to a move by Baghdad to nullify the security agreement.
Washington knows it can land troops in Iraq by simply going through Erbil which is precisely what Turkey did last Friday. The KRG/ Barzani end-around serves to give the troop deployments a kind of quasi-legitimacy. That is, the Kurds control the territory and are self governing, so when Erdogan (and, soon Obama) drop troops in northern Iraq against Baghdad’s wishes, they can claim it’s not a violation of sovereignty. As we saw over the weekend, Iraqi officials aren’t going to stand for it going forward although now that it’s become clear that NATO and the Security Council aren’t going to be any help (just as we said), Iraq’s ambassador to the UN is striking a concilliatory tone, saying Baghdad will try to settle the dispute with Turkey “bilaterally.”
It now appears that the stage is set for Baghdad to claim that the US, like Turkey, is illegitimately occupying the country (again). If Iraq nullifies the security agreement and moves to invite the Russians into the country, the US will be forced to either pack up and leave, cooperate with Moscow, or fight for the right to preserve American influence.
