DRAKES FAQ

May 21st, 2012 by

 

Due to the larger number of questions that we receive during interviews with Drake, they may not all be answered. You can email questions to: freedomreignsusa@gmail.com. Questions will be answered the following broadcast where Drake will be a guest (typically Wednesdays). Deatra has stressed that if you ask questions that they have already answered, she will ignore them.

 

Freedom Reigns has a Facebook page that can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/125145437569277/

Updates will be made to any information that has been previously provided by Drake.

New information will be added as it is released.

LAW DICTIONARY – ONLINE [Black’s Law Dictionary (2nd Ed)]

http://thelawdictionary.org/ This is an older version but is useful for legal terms.

UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE

The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC or the Code), first published in 1952, is one of a number of uniform acts that have been promulgated in conjunction with efforts to harmonize the law of sales and other commercial transactions in all 50 states within the United States of America.

• You will need to search for your state’s UCC version.

• Reservation of Rights is part of the UCC.

o Example: When you sign your driver’s license, you are agreeing to any and all laws dealing with transportation. If you do not know those laws you are subject to them unless you put Reservation of Rights above your signature.

o This is true of all contracts. Any portion of any contract that is not fully explained to the understanding of the individual signing said contract makes that contract null and void and unenforceable. It is to be treated in law as if it never existed.

AREA 51 & DULCE, NEW MEXICO NEW (04/29/2012)

• Parts of Area 51 are now empty and a couple of the others are empty. A lot of the stuff that was out there has been used in terms of moving them into tunnels, tunnel systems and underground bases. This was your top of the line technology reverse engineered from supposed ET craft that crashed. These things have been spread all over the country. The people who had the idea reverse engineering did so for two reasons:

1. Military superiority in terms of weaponry.

2. The advanced technologies would give them the capability of having all the electricity they wanted for as long as they wanted it kind of thing.

ARRESTS

• The timeframe for this is 30-45 days from 8 April 2012.

• The arrests, taking into custody, sweep, and housecleaning, whatever you want to call it, will not come much lower than governor level, if that.

• President and Congress – 13th amendment will apply. If you are an agent in any way, form or shape, holding allegiance or gratitude to a foreign power, not only can you not hold citizenship, you cannot hold any office. You are not allowed to be here.

UPDATED (04/29/2012)

• He won’t be definitive about the arrests. There are the beginnings of the things which he has discussed on prior radio shows that have already transpired.

• Europe is going crazy. The reason they are going crazy is 2 reasons: they do not have the funds to back the currency known as the euro and they also have an extraordinary, staggering and impossible to pay back debt.

• A NORTHCOM maneuver is scheduled between May 2- 9 in 6 different states. Seeing military convoys wouldn’t be out of place since it is a training exercise however it could be the good guys putting their troops in place.

• The legalistics involved should be complete as of this past week. If not, the first of next week.

• Majority of the executive orders, if any, that can be used on a legal basis simply because they have not been done correctly.

• People need to start learning how these things work so they can take this down to the local level and tell their mayor no, nature does not clean up the leaves in the forest so there is no need for me to clean up the leaves in my yard as such. You are not sending locals workers over to do that for me and then charging me for the privilege. This goes to property rights.

• When certain people are in a position to do so, they will take a sweep. They will take all the people from behind the people you have in office – the financiers, people that have been being the document runners and people like that are all of a sudden going to disappear. After that sweep is made, they make sure they have all the records they need to prosecute these people. Then the people will be given the notification to go into a green light status. That means everyone will be notified about 24 hours ahead of the time you get to see people put away in handcuffs.

(UPDATED 05/06/2012)

• Regarding the arrests: it will be soon and Drake will not give a date. The dates he has been given on anything have come directly from the military so he’ll let them deal with it. The federal government as we know it will cease to exist. Most of it is unnecessary and a lot of it is illegal.

• There will be some gun fights (the bad guys not wanting to be captured).

BANKS

• Per Drake, if you have money in the bank everything will be zeroed out.

• Afterwards there will be a RV (re-evaluation) according to a combination of both personal and collateral accounts.

• The collateral accounts will try to attend to a combination of public works, making sure people have jobs, thing of this nature.

• The private accounts will be more attuned to making sure that the people who would bring out emergency food stuffs to people who don’t have any food have gas for their trucks and things of this nature

• The banks themselves, if they are not directly affiliated with the Federal Reserve or central banking system, will not be taken down.

• The re-evaluation is going to be a different type of value in terms of currency. We will be going from what we now know as a debt system to what will be known as equity system.

• You may be looking at 2-3 times the purchasing power you had with the Federal Reserve note. This means wages, costs, a lot of things are going to adjust.

• These things are predicated on two basis: direct valuation (means that things have a certain value) and to go along with this productivity in terms of what the individual people are capable of

doing and making sure they have the opportunity to do so. These are to see the basic needs of individuals.

• The currency of a country should be backed by some value.

• For people that have money in the bank (prior to everything being zeroed), consider purchasing gold and silver coins. By having $200-$300 worth of silver coins (called junk silver because they are 85% or more silver) you have a vendible currency that is always recognized.

• From Drake’s understanding, it will not take very long to change from the debit system to the value system.

• We will continue using the current currency and it will be phased out over time. Drake has not been told yet what the new currency will be. There will be a dead period that can be addressed with gold and silver coin. Get at least enough to last you basically a week in terms of your expenses (groceries, fuel, etc.).

(UPDATED 05/06/2012)

• There are several things going on that people don’t know about. Several of those took place recently. One of those was the liens against the banking system in Europe. The interesting part about this is the legalities involved in this are basically set. There is a second and third part to that. The secondary part is coming in the near future but Drake is not certain exactly when and if he had the information he would refuse to give it out simply to protect the people doing it. The secondary part of this is causing the liens to become a warrant. The manner in which that is done is by requiring the bank, according to its charter, to pay its annual fee on the amount of the collateral accounts they have been using as collateral to maintain their operations. When that is done, the request for payment then becomes a warrant to the bank to produce their payment. When the bank cannot pay this, they are immediately referred to their bonding company. The bonding company then takes care of the problem whatever it may be. That is the system. The problem is that the bank cannot pay it. They don’t have that kind of collateral in gold which is the required payment. The bonding company doesn’t have it either so primarily you are looking at a bankruptcy. If a bank refuses to perform, in terms of reporting to its bonding company that there is some sort of serious problem, then that in and of itself is felonious and anyone who is involved with that bank can go to jail. If they do report to the bonding company, the bank is cleared of that. If the bonding company does not report back to the lien holder, that is also felonious and everyone associated can also be arrested.

• A 143 country consortium refuses to abide by the Rothschild banking system any further. They formed their own banking system.

• As these things transpire then these people, who are iffy at best, who did this on purpose in terms of our banking system, are being systematically singled out and that systematic singling out will come in the form of these arrests that everyone has been talking about. There will still be mass arrests also.

• You can expect a bank holiday when they zero out the funds so they can get rid of the bad guys. Then you will not have basic currency like we are used to and this is where the little bit of silver come in if you need it. Stock it up for a few days, maybe a week or two. Make sure you have some food. Make sure your medications are in order.

• Don’t be overly concerned. Drake’s understanding is the phones are going to work, the toilet will flush and some people can go to work and not worry about it.

BRIDGES NEW (04/29/2012)

• The dark cabal has drilled holes in the cement of the bridges to put explosives in. The good guys are still working at removing the explosives. There are a lot of bridges.

CHEMTRAILS NEW (04/29/2012)

• If we can’t get official action sometimes the people have to take action. Drake has made an issue of this through his contact chains and other people that they need to address this. Some things have been done but not nearly enough. Hopefully at some point you will start seeing fighter jets escorting these people to the ground or shooting them down or something of this nature.

• Is there any benefit to a chemtrail that we are unaware of? That depends what is in it. There are chemicals, mixes of things that can remedy most of the problems that those things have created. It can also clean the atmosphere and us. They can be beneficial if used correctly with the correct ingredients yes.

CHICAGO (NATO Meeting) NEW (04/29/2012)

• Doubt an evacuation will happen. Evacuating Chicago would be an extraordinary undertaking. The logistics do not fit. The areas around people will be sanitized and anyone questionable will get to take a trip, either voluntarily or with assistance.

• Black choppers are an intimidation and scare tactic.

• Bad guys no longer have a place to hide nor can they get off planet.

CHINA NEW (04/29/2012)

• Should we be concerned about people from China building here? Why aren’t we using people from the United States? Each individual nation will be responsible for their people. You will find that there will be a lack of capable people (people correctly trained) to handle infrastructure repair.

COMMUNITIES

• Involves individuals, small towns, counties, things of this nature are going to become critical for two reasons:

1. Self survival, self preservation

2. The people will be seeing several different structural plans for a government in this country. It is going to be hinged on and primarily put together just a little differently but very similar to what we originally had. Drake’s understanding of the plan is two-fold:

 The federal government as everyone knows it now is going and§ the finances will be turned back to the treasury.

 The structural plans will be put on display at voting places§ for everyone to see with an explanation of what they are for/do. Individual nation-states will stand individually. There will be agreements between them per the Articles of Confederation.

 We will have a much more transparent§ government.

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY (DHS)

• Ammunition Purchases – Just because you say you are doing something does not necessarily mean it is happening. Would check to see if there is a contract along with payment that validates what you are saying.

DRAKE’S AFFLIATION

• He has had dealings with both the White Knights and White Dragons.

• He is not a member of these groups at this time.

• There have been several Drakes popping up all over the place.

• If someone wishes to contract Drake, they may do so through www.freedomreigns.us

DRAKE’S COFFEE (Medicinal)

• He uses regular coffee but adds a few things.

• Makes 12 cups with filtered water. Uses 4 level scoops of Folder’s Dark Blend coffee. Flatten out the coffee so it is not heaped up.

• Ginger – it takes care of the acid feeling in your stomach that can occur from drinking coffee. Put enough in to speckle it a light yellowish color.

• Whole Ground Cloves – these are a pain reliever. Put enough in until it is speckled brown.

• Hyssop (can buy at a health food store) – sprinkle enough to sort of cover the prior ingredients.

• Red Clover – is a blood cleaner. Add a healthy pinch (equivalent of 1-2 blossoms and some leaves).

• Then make the coffee. The coffee will have a naturally sweet taste.

FARMERS NEW (04/29/2012)

• Two things will happen as this thing starts working itself out:

1. Re-emergence of manufacturing in this county.

2. The other general intention or focus is going to be on farming (see Localization).

FEDERAL RESERVE NEW (04/29/2012)

• Will the $16 trillion of bailout money that went to the bankers’ pockets have to be paid back? Recently on Divine Cosmos, David Wilcock put out the report of all twelve central banks being leined. The deal with the leins is that the answer is yes. The central banks now have to pay back all of those funds that they obtained illegally. Basically the central banking system is getting ready to go bankrupt. Parts of it already have in Europe and other countries.

(UPDATED 05/06/2012)

• The Federal Reserve, in terms of its collection branch known as the IRS, is supposed to last for a year. Drake has heard three different stories on this:

1. One is that they can close it down in a year’s time and get it straightened out. Drake feels this is wishful thinking.

2. The next one is a minimum of two years and they said that they may be able to do it in that period of time that they weren’t sure.

3. The last estimate was four years. This does not mean that this thing will be active in any way, shape or form during this period of time.

FINANCIAL SYSTEM

• There have been numerous resignations and arrests in Europe.

• In the U.S., banking officials decided to take extended foreign vacations instead of resigning. When this was discovered, some of the people have been stopped at the borders, their credentials checked, their passport was kept and they were told to go home.

• Since the current banking system can no longer take money from small foreign countries, they are limited to funds on hand. The funds on hand have been stolen, leveraged, borrowed and securitized away from what are called Collateral Global Accounts. This was without permission and illegal. These things are being addressed.

• The banks are responsible for paying this money back, not us.

• When the Fed goes here, so does the financial basis, backbone or support of most of the G20.

• All of the financial power, to include the reach anyone has in any capacity (corporate, government, whatever), is going to be reduced to having no value. The framework they operate in will be taken down (the basis for it which is money).

UPDATED (04/29/2012)

• Russia’s stock exchange is realigning some of what they are doing but the problem is a person by the name of George Soros. He couldn’t affect a direct takedown while he was in the country. Apparently there was an arrest warrant issued for him for financial terrorism. Russia shut down for self-protection.

• U.S. stock market is bogus in terms of its valuation. The actual valuation right now is around 6,000. Remember what happened to housing. The housing market today is basically at more of a true value then it has been in a lot of years. When a stock splits, they are diluting the value.

• Do not throw away your Federal Reserve notes. The re-evaluation will reinstate them on an equity basis so they will still have value.

FREE ENERGY

• Drake is in the process of making some of his own.

• The technologies that have been repressed are going to be a part of the disclosure. The disclosures are going to be tremendous. Anyone that has had or has cancer will be treated in such a manner that they will no longer have it.

FUKUSHIMA

• Was in the works for 5 years. There is no documentary evidence concerning that, that anyone can come up with at this point.

• Documentation on it does exist and is hoping to preserve that in order to prosecute the people involved with it.

• Japan is unsafe to live in and this has not been told to the people.

• The radiation has spread to Europe. The problem is not radiation itself but the type of radiation.

• This was an extortion attempt and used an explosive device.

HAARP

• Has been used for a combination of things. One is extraordinary weather (called weather wars). Other parts of it are earthquakes, tsunamis, extraordinary lacks in certain things (example: if you move the jet stream a certain way and a whole area goes dry).

HOUSING CRISIS

• Foreclosed homes will be returned to the owner. People that have bought those homes will need to find a new one.

• The interest rate in terms of a mortgage is going to become a moot point. People may want to look what is occurring in Iceland.

1. Majority of what the central banking system was telling them was fraudulent. Iceland ruled that their debt was fraudulent and that the banks could pay their own debt.

2. Recently Iceland forgave all mortgages.

• You are your own creditor. Fact of the matter is that these things will be officially recognized and rectified. All federal taxes will disappear and as well as your mortgage.

UPDATED (04/29/2012)

• Strawman account is in our name and tied to our birth certificate. Specifically the strawman doesn’t exist and what it is is an equity issued according to your value. Generally it is around three billion dollars. This goes directly to the Fed in terms of valuation upon birth. You have to

remember that because of the fictitiousness of the origins of these actions, as goes to the corporate government, that

1. A corporation has no more right than Walmart or someone else to collect taxes and

2. They do not have the capability to lawfully operate as an entity where it regards a free people.

• The other part of this is that you have people losing their homes because they don’t understand that they are actually issuing the credit to the mortgage holders against themselves. In other words, you are worth X amount of money. If you sign a paper, there’s no transfer of funds. They go on a computer screen and change some numbers and that’s it. There is no value that moves.

• As to the issue of the credit, the individual does not owe but the banks do. This is a part of the reverse they put it to cause us to think certain things. People have been lead to believe that when you apply for a loan you are actually getting an intrinsic value when you’re not.

• As far as fighting that sort of thing, there are several places you can go. Put “knockoutcollectors.com” into your browser’s address bar (do not do a search) and you will come up with some answers. There are a whole lot of things in legalistics and legal terms that most average people are unaware of. Due to the bankruptcies that this country has had, we operate under what’s called the Unified Commercial Code (UCC). Everything is commerce.

• The strawman ideology: yes it does have some legal valuation, it does have some legal ramifications but using the UCC as an international law whereby all commerce is conducted within this field of a combination of understanding and enforcement, then everyone has to pay certain portions of bills when they are coming payable. It also outlines contracts – exactly their legal condition, and the manner in which you can sign one so they cannot say you agreed to the contract so this, this and this applies when it is not written anywhere in the contract.

• You use UCC 1-308 called Reservation of Rights. That means there is no implied contract. If you want to start some stuff and you’re paying federal taxes, put Reservation of Rights above your name when you sign something. It would be an idea for those who decide to do so to have a good lawyer.

• For people looking at buying a home at this time: make sure the deal is structured correctly, make sure that the property they are looking at to buy is comparable to valuations done on properties similar to it within that area.

• Most of the foreclosures have been ruled as fraudulent and the property is to either be returned or compensation made to the original owner. It may not be the best idea to invest in these things. The only entity that you are assisting when you do so is the bank itself.

ICELAND NEW (04/29/2012)

• Some of the information Drake has been given on Iceland is privileged and he has not been given authorization to discuss it.

• A certain amount of the mortgages have been forgiven according to where they were originated and the types of monies involved.

JUDGES NEW (04/29/2012)

• There are people in prison that shouldn’t be there because a judge had made a mistake. Drake suggests holding the judge personally responsible for incorrect application of the law. The record should be expunged (stricken from all records).

LOCALIZATION NEW (04/29/2012)

• On the website, www.freedomreigns.us, you will find a thing called Community Support. It provides a combination of both helping each other with simplistic things (if someone can’t do

something, you help them with it or if they need something, you may provide it). The other part of it is protection.

• Drake is not recommending violence. What he is recommending is for everyone to get their groups together and get a phone tree going. When you see something funky, call the sheriff.

• Have somebody who has time and the capability to keep an eye out and make sure they have a cell phone and a radio. It would be a good idea to advise all of the militias to put a scout, a recon, a lookout, whatever you want to call it out there with a radio and a cell phone. The call does this: they call for reinforcements, the reinforcements call the sheriff and they call up the phone tree for civilians. The militia is deployed to whatever the problem area is and these people are confronted.

(UPDATED 05/06/2012)

• The ideology is one person who is awake and the rest are not and you want to get a message out, go talk to someone it doesn’t matter who it is. Is there something that can be done that will benefit everyone that they probably would like to have taken care of? That can be anything … squeaky hinge, chipped steps, someone needs their grass mowed and can’t do it for themselves for whatever reason, go get it done. Could be as simple as a ride to the store.

• If you get a new washer and dryer, what do you do with the old ones? Do you have them cart them off or do you give them to a charity that gives out washers and dryers? Or give them to someone who needs replacements.

• Militias need to introduce themselves so they are known.

• What are you going to do to make sure that your local area it is also straightened out? If you don’t have a community working together, if you don’t have eyes and ears, how will you find out who is dirty and who is not dirty? It’s just that simple.

• The sheriff might be a great guy and he might have one deputy that is a little funky and no one has paid attention to it. The time is now to get those kinds of people out there. If they are doing something other than what they are supposed to be doing, they can’t be doing what they are supposed to be doing.

• States issues will need to be handled by individuals in that state. The same applies to your town or community. Unite and work together to take back your community. If you want freedom, you have to work for it.

• A lot of the convenience things that people are used to are not going to be readily available. It is going to be more of a regression or a turning back in time to an extent.

• If you can something correctly it can last 5-10 years and you won’t have any problem with it. Learning this is fairly easy. Go online and find out everything you need to know. How to prep the ground, how to can something, what you have to do it to can it and what you have to do if you want to preserve can it.

MISCELLANEOUS (NEW 05/06/2012)

NOTE: These were questions that do not have a specific area.

• Social security, disability and military pensions will not be cut off.

• Mutual funds will be zeroed out and there will be a revaluation. Small investors will be compensated according to what they have invested. Most of the small people, to include business owners, will not be hurt by this revaluation. You will get something to what is called par value or some sort of direct exchange. So you will end up making money with the revaluation.

• There will be no commerce for a few days while the accounts are being zeroed out. Then there will be a revaluation.

• You will not see any cabal members and you are not likely to see any member of the bar Association in terms of holding any office or being able to ever again. This is one of the stipulations in terms of the 13th Amendment. The individuals are subject to lose their citizenship as well.

• Is Obama a good guy or bad guy? He might be a switch-a-Rooney.

• Drake says they have a combination of both internet stations as well as main stream media. These are ready to link in at the time that green light condition has been given. To tell if this is the real deal, it will be posted on the Freedom Reigns website. Information will be put out as to what channel to go to, to learn what has been done and to educate people according to what the differences are going to be.

• All of these actions are global. There are people working to set up information in the Freedom Reigns forums for countries outside the US.

• Food replicators are real and have been used since the 50s. They are not preprogrammed to make it taste like it’s supposed to and you are likely to get some really strange things.

• Political prisoners will be released if they are truly political prisoners and have not violated common law (injured part or injured property).

• Students in college will find that their education changes a bit because there is a problem with two things: history and factuality have been changed to suit a specific political and communist agenda. This will be righted and books will change.

MOLESTERS NEW (04/29/2012)

• Bogus charges are difficult to clear. If you have any physical evidence, save it. Any kind of jar will do for liquids.

• A molester living too close to schools, as Drake understands it, is forbidden under the sexual predator laws.

OPERATION GREEN LIGHT (24-hour advance notice) NEW (04/29/2012)

• Not valid! When the Green Light occurs it will be found on www.freedomreigns.us.

• If something is posted, do not make it viral until after confirming it through Freedom Reigns.

• Individuals will not be personally contacted when there is an alert. It will be posted on Freedom Reigns and they have compiled a list of various media sources who have asked to be contacted.

• When the Green Light is given, they (media sources) will help to let everyone know.

POLICE NEW (04/29/2012)

• Not all police are bad but there are some that are doing things like tazering people to death or being inappropriate taking people into custody.

• Make formal complaints to the state level law enforcement. What this does is this involves the FBI and other people directly in whatever transpired. It also causes the action to be investigated.

• If anyone has witnesses, etc., get their statements that they saw the police doing something that was not right.

• Do not assault the police.

• If people are just standing around and they arbitrarily pick someone, that needs to be radio recorded, that needs to be witnessed. At that point then the policeman is guilty of a crime.

• You do not have to abide by what would be called a police inquiry in the matter. You need to go down and file an affidavit that states or stipulates truth in a cause. That cause will go along with whatever arrest record or incident report that the police make. When you have substantial evidence to the contrary, especially video or pictures, when there is no reason for the action taken then that policeman can be held responsible for what they do.

RADIATION NEW (04/29/2012)

• The radiation and radiation levels are real. The problem with the reporting of it is that you cannot read the type of radiation with a standard Geiger counter. This is a different type of radioactivity in terms of the manner in which it presents itself in its physical manifestation.

• The radiation is at extraordinary high levels and it has already blanketed the United States and it is headed toward Europe and beginning to affect England at this point.

• There are things that can be sprayed through chemtrail applications that attend to these things it removes, it absorbs the radiation. Once the radiation is absorbed, there are biologics – small critters that eat atomic isotopes to neutralize them in the process.

UPDATED (05/06/2012)

• The technology for the Fukushima problem will be released with disclosure. Drake is not sure whether this technology will be part of the initial release or not.

SHAPE SHIFTERS NEW (04/29/2012)

• Certain elite Special Forces have been trained to hunt these things. The movie “Priest” shows this ideology.

• At a certain distance when they don’t know we are there, you can start popping them off. That is part of what is being done presently.

• If you see one, go back into the house. You don’t need to hide but keep a powerful weapon on hand just in case they decide to come to visit.

SPAIN NEW (04/29/2012)

• Spain has announced that they are going to a cashless society. Drake suggests people watch this situation simply because what happens there is going to give an idea as to what the adjustments they are looking for, in terms of making things right, is going to be or the manner in which the bad guys hide it. You can add France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Ireland and eventually the U.K. to the list of the people that are going to have financial problems. The shift is in progress but it does take some time to accomplish this.

SPIRITUALITY

• Good reference site that covers some of the information Drake discussed: http://humanityhealing.net/

• Drake assists with this site.

STATES (Connecting to Others) (NEW 05/06/2012)

• If you are interested in finding others in your state to connect with, the Freedom Reigns website has a way to connect here: http://frforum.freedomreigns.us/user/Discussions.aspx?id=338449. If your state is not listed, start a thread for your state.

STATES (Financial) NEW (04/29/2012)

• If states decide to have their own monetary system, Drake suggests that the American dollar be printed on one side and the state’s currency on the other. Then you have a national currency that just happens to be from that state. The problem is that some states have more wealth then others and it’s prohibitive to have an exchange rate between states.

STATES (Paperwork) NEW (04/29/2012)

• The list of states with paperwork not yet done can be found here: http://frforum.freedomreigns.us/user/Discussions.aspx?id=338446

VATICAN

• No idea when the Pope will step down but we will know about it when it happens.

• Everyone has heard of the scandals/problems within the church and those problems run to that particular individual. There are other things nastier than that that will come out that people will be shocked at.

UPDATED (04/29/2012)

• Drake doesn’t see the pope as being the center of attraction. According to the church doctrine, it states that the pope is the holy man directly in contact with Jesus Christ. That Jesus Christ, stated in the book, is the intercessor between man and God. That doesn’t say anything about the pope.

• The pope is guilty of things that even go beyond pedophilia and other concerns that the church has.

• Drake suggests that the church should cleanse itself. This should be done by the membership. Not all church officials are dirty. The ones that are left after you clean house could be your new leadership and they should be watched closely. Anything funny reported, they should be changed for someone else.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

I debated long and hard on posting this and decided it is your responsibility to investigate and decide for your self if this is true.

 

 

 

 

THE FALL

May 16th, 2012 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/Schwiesow/jim192.htm

By: Jim R. Schwiesow

 
One can liken the days leading up to the pending collapse of this nation to an appointment with an endodontic for a root canal procedure, the time unto the appointment seemingly lapses with unnerving quickness while the horrific hour and a half in the chair grinds by for an ostensible eternity. Thus it is in regard to the final days of this nation that slip swiftly by in a run up to the pure hell that awaits; an ultimate frantic, terrifying, gut wrenching fall of a once proud republic.

And I will dash them one against each other, the fathers and the sons, says the Lord. I will not pity or spare or have compassion, that I should not destroy them. Jeremiah 13:14

In the jagged ignorant minds of a lost people those terminal days will grind by in interminable agony. It will be a hell of a secular humanist making and a just retribution for the evolutionists, atheists, agnostics, sodomites, socialists, communists, and progressives who thumbed their noses at Almighty God and held His name in derision.

One can imagine that these dimwits will have in the last desperate days the boldness and unmitigated effrontery to invoke His name for delivery from the elements of destruction, but it will not be in sack cloth and ashes and with abject repentant humility that they approach, but for self preservation and a hope for a continued irreverent existence. Their arrogance will persist unto the final minute of the final hour of the final day, and then the end. Perhaps they will believe their god Obama and his demonic minions will save them; since by all appearances they revere him above the God of creation.

MAKING READY FOR THE INEVITABLE

It would seem that – if recent reports are to be believed and by all documented evidence they seem to be accurate – this goofy, Godless, perverted and demonic government is preparing for a nation-wide rebellion. They are laying up untold millions of rounds of firearms ammunition, millions of dehydrated meals, preparing shelters for the elite, internment camps for political dissidents, and training the military for posse comitatus status and for a carrying out of a rectifying indoctrination curriculum for political activists.

The ammunition is presumably for the killing of those in active rebellion, the food to keep the elites alive in their cushy shelters, the camps to warehouse and torment dissenters and objectors, and the indoctrination curriculum to inflict physical and mental suffering upon those whom they believe to be contentious heretical foes of the demonic system. It is a chapter straight out of the George Orwell novel 1984.

These idiotic bureaucrats and political potentates are peeing into the wind with all of this so called preparation. When this resurrection gets rolling it will be burn baby burn, and it will not be contained by the crackbrained government that brought it on.

In the Watts riot, which was a spit in the ocean compared to what will come; the police abdicated control to the rioters and were nowhere to be found. They hung around the edges of the conflagration in a cowardly cringe. And in the aftermath of the New Orleans hurricane debacle a major portion of the police force deserted and abandoned their posts and responsibilities. Some even joined in the looting; so much for local law enforcement, what about the military?

When this thing goes nationwide the troops – that are already on the verge of rebellion due to their egregiously ill treatment during and after service, their subjection to stupid leadership, and for being used as cannon fodder in the infernal pits of the world – will desert. Government revenues will dry up completely, the cowardly politicians and bureaucrats will run for the hills and hide in order to keep from being strung up by their heels like Mussolini; and murdering and marauding scum will control the environs nationwide.

One would think that it would be hard, if not impossible, to be prepared for something such as that…however the fact is that Obama has in reality accelerated a movement toward total anarchy to the point that this truly appears to be his ultimate goal. The only explanation seems to be that he has made clandestine deals with the internationalists for the insertion of foreign troops to quell the insurrection in the name of international order and to impose an exercising authority by a world government collective.
 

We know from his sotto voce conversation with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev before an open mike that he promised to, when re-elected, dismantle U.S. missile defenses and leave the nation vulnerable to the belligerency of foreign enemies. He seems to be smugly counting his chickens in regard to a re-election, what does he know that we don’t? For an imbecile who has royally screwed up everything that he has turned his hand to during his illegitimate presidency he seems to be supremely confident…too confident to my way of thinking. In the words of that old Shakespearean quote: Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

ROMNEY WILL SAVE US 

Now where have I heard that refrain before…Oh Yeah! It was when a totally stupid electorate rose in a rabid fanatical frenzy and anointed one of the biggest political jackass’s of the Democrat Party as their messiah. I write one of because the Democrat Party is replete with political jackasses. So ecstatic was this interloping fake that he was soon addressing himself in public forums as the savior. It would seem that there is no end of the number of worldly messianic saviors that indwell the two national political parties today.

Man is certainly stark mad. He cannot even make a worm, and yet he will be making gods by the dozens–Montaigne

I continue to hear the propagandist media yammering about the importance of the Independent vote and its effect upon the upcoming election. The truth is that there is no such being as a politically non-partisan independent; all who vote are possessed of an ingrained ideology that is an intimate part of their psyche. The fact is that in a pigsty society such as ours the majority has been indoctrinated to a progressive persuasion.

Presently progressive zealots comprise ninety-nine point nine percent of the Democrat Party, the remaining one tenth of one percent are no less progressive, but possess a smidge less fanaticism.

The Republican Party membership is constituted of a three way division; roughly one third of those under the Republican banner are proximate no principle progressives – of a Mitt Romney variety – who proudly call themselves moderates, one quarter are genuine realistic conservatives, and the remaining forty-odd percent are bomb-throwing neocons. It is these who control the party apparatus and light the torch for a thousand points of light internationalism.

The chief claim to fame of these is that they have kept the United States embroiled in a series of guerilla wars ostensibly to democratize the world. It is a completely nescient belief which maintains that democracy will save the world; as exactly the opposite is the truth.

The promulgated conjecture that a united international composite, making binding decrees upon diverse peoples, will deliver a worldwide utopia is hogwash. If such were the case God would have let Noah's descendants build that tower instead of confusing their language and scattering them to the winds.

What the bomb-throwers have accomplished is to kill and maim millions of non-combatants, condemn some of our best young people to life-long debilities or a violent premature death, and contributed to a crushing national debt through monumental military expenditures. And all for what; they can point to no absolute victories, no middle-east stability, and no lasting peace. It was all for naught, and a very expensive all for naught.

I have been rather pitiless here in regard to the language I have used to describe a less than illustrious political leadership, but to call a court jester a prince would be to play cavalier with the truth.

BUILDING SODOM & GOMORRAH

Many may remember Judge Robert Bork who, as a nominee to the Supreme Court, was pilloried by one of the most egregiously scurrilous personal assaults on an honorable man to ever be recorded; this by a Democrat Senate in 1987 whose integrity deficient members completely abandoned any semblance of decorum and grace with their despicable character assassination.

Subsequent to being politically destroyed by those of infinitely less quality and worth than he Judge Bork wrote a book entitled, Slouching to Gomorrah; indeed this scholarly work by the learned constitutionalist highlighted the damage done to the constitutional foundations of the nation by a radical embracement by modern liberals of egalitarianism.

This doctrine – liberals believe – mandates a classless society, in other words an absolute political, economic, and social equality of the masses. In such a desirable environment, according to progressive theology, there must be no constitutional impediments to individual desires; a belief that has led to the long list of vices and social deviancies that have delivered the nation unto an evil wickedness that a righteous and holy God cannot possibly ignore. 

 OBAMA BLESSES SAME SEX MARRIAGE

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:13

This past week Barack Hussein Obama has gone a long way in giving credence to those whispered rumors in regard to his bathhouse club days in Chicago. We may never know his secret sexual preferences, but we do know that he has given his personal and official stamp of approval on the deviant sexual practice of sodomy. One has to believe that he assumes that the majority of our society approves and condones such a filthy deviant life style or he wouldn’t have been so bold prior to Election Day. And he is I believe correct in his assumption.

THE PEOPLES MOTTO: LIVE AND LET LIVE

"Today we live in an era in which the worst vices are inscribed into law as human rights. Every evil must have its punishment, either in our times or in the afterlife."– Roberto De Mattei, 63, the deputy head of the country's National Research Council, Italy

Deputy De Mattei who is a prominent Italian historian went on to say that the Roman Empire collapsed due to a contagion of homosexuality and effeminacy, which made it easy pickings for barbarian hordes. And there was more.

Anyone conversant with the details of the collapse of the Roman Empire knows that the United States is precisely emulating the course that led to that empires fall and extinction. Ultra foolish fiscal policies and currency manipulation, abject political corruption, unfettered illegal immigration, and a complete breakdown of social morality finished off the Roman Empire, and the same perversions are spelling doom for this once blessed republic. This country is in its late terminal stages and destined for internment in the graveyard of deceased nations and commonwealths. But, you dear reader can live eternally in a new world and an eternal Kingdom.  

ETERNAL LIFE

Only those born again of the Spirit are sons of the Most High God.

Not one in a thousand who call themselves Christian understand what it means to be born again of the Spirit, one cannot be born again by a two minute profession of faith, one cannot be born again by regularly attending a denominational church, one cannot be born again by infant baptism, one cannot be born again by an altruistic life, and one cannot be born again by good works or philanthropy.

To be born again one must die to self and submit absolutely to the will of Almighty God. The door to salvation and eternal life is the Lord Jesus Christ; no one comes to the Father except by Him. Walk through that door and enter into the membership of Christ’s Church, the Church against which the gates of hell will not prevail. It is the only church that counts. Do it now and live forever…
And all of God’s people say – Amen!

Economic Alert: If You’re Not Worried Yet. You Should Be.

May 13th, 2012 by

http://www.alt-market.com/articles/765-economic-alert-if-youre-not-worried-yetyou-should-be

By Brandon Smith

For the past four years I have been covering the progression of the global economic crisis with an emphasis on the debilitating effects it has had on the American financial system.

Only once before have I ever issued an economic alert, and this was at the onset of the very first credit downgrade in U.S. history by S&P.  I do not take the word “alert” lightly.  Since 2008 we have seen a cycle of events that have severely weakened our country’s foundation, but each event has then been followed by a lull, sometimes 4 to 6 months at a stretch, which seems to disarm the public, drawing them back into apathy and complacency.  The calm moments before each passing storm give Americans a false sense of hope that our capsized fiscal vessel will somehow right itself if we just hold on a little longer…

I don’t have to tell most people within the Liberty Movement that this is not going to happen.  Unfortunately, there are many out there who do not share our awareness of the situation.   Debt implosions and currency devaluation NEVER simply “fade away”; they are always followed by extreme social and political strife that tends to sully the doorsteps of almost every individual and family.  The notion that we can coast through such a tempest unscathed is an insane idea, filled with a dangerous potential for sour regrets.

There are some people who also believe that the private Federal Reserve with the Treasury in tow has the ability to prolong the worst symptoms of the collapse indefinitely, or at least, until they have long since kicked the bucket and don’t have to worry about it anymore (the ‘pay-it forward to our grandkids’ crowd) .  I can say with 100% certainty that most of us will live to see the climax of the breakdown, and that this breakdown is about to enter a more precarious state before the end of this year.  You can only stretch a sun-boiled rubber band so far before it snaps completely, and America’s financial elasticity has long been melted away.

A pummeling hailstorm of news items and international developments have made the first half of 2012 almost impossible to track and analyze.  The frequency at which negative information has surfaced is almost dizzying.  However, a pattern and a recognizable motion are beginning to take shape, and, I believe, a loose timeline is beginning to form.

At the end of January, I covered the incredible nosedive of the Baltic Dry Index (a measure of global shipping rates that signals a fall in global demand) to historic lows.  I pointed out the tendency of stocks and the general economy to crash around 8 months (sometimes a little longer) after the BDI makes such a dramatic downturn.  Mainstream analysts, of course, attributed the fall to an “overproduction of ships”, which is the same exact excuse they used when the BDI collapsed back in 2008 just before the derivatives bubble burst.  It would seem that the cable TV talking heads were wrong yet again, as the international market facade quickly evaporates right in line with the BDI’s almost prophetic knack for calling an economic derailment in advance.

Here are some of the most important reasons why every American should be prepared for much harder days, especially before the end of 2012:

The European Union Is Officially Dead In The Water

Stick a fork in er’, the EU is done!  We are talking about full scale dismantlement, likely followed by a reformation of core nations and multiple collapse scenarios of peripheral countries.  The writing is all over the wall in the wake of the latest election results in Greece and France, where, as alternative researchers have been predicting for some time, the battle between the government spending crowd and proponents of austerity has reached a fever pitch.

The Greeks and the French are royally pissed over draconian cuts in public programs and the destruction of pensions which have been a mainstay of their economies for quite some time.  They are also furious over being sold off like collateral to the IMF and World Bank.  Rightly so.  Like the American taxpayer, the taxpayers of floundering EU nations are wrongly being held responsible for the financial mismanagement and fraud of their governments and global banks which have remained untouched and unpunished for their trespasses.  The problem is, the voters of both countries are signing on to the socialist/quasi-communist bandwagon in response.  In Greece, the Left Coalition Party, a splinter group of the traditional communist party, has now taken a primary position of power:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/05/07/us-greece-idUSBRE8440DG20120507

In France, voters have elected socialist Francois Hollande (a Bilderberg attendee), whose latest promise is to spend France into recovery through his “pro-growth agenda”:

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/french-president-elect-hollande-won-t-difficult-obama-195617064.html

I have no doubt that the elections of the EU are as manipulated by elitists as they are here in the U.S., and I’m sure false paradigms abound.  Have Europeans forgotten that it was overt government spending that set them on the path to calamity in the first place?  Or, are they like Americans; just desperate for any change in the ranks of leadership?  One would think that they would take note of the problems here in our country and realize that electing a socialist to replace another socialist is no way out of economic hardship.

Former officials like Nicolas Sarkozy may have claimed to be distanced from the socialist ideal, but, as with all globalist puppets, their actions did not match their rhetoric, and they have always supported policies of centralization and big government.  The French and the Greeks have essentially replaced closet collectivists with outspoken collectivists, and will see NO relief from the crisis in the Euro-zone as a result of the political reordering.  In fact, the stage has now been set for a volatile chain of dominos.  Germany, which is the only economy left holding the EU together, has been unyielding on austerity cuts.  A conflict between France and Germany is now inevitable.  Neither will compromise their position, and I can see no other eventual result than a reexamination and perhaps abandonment of the EU charter.

How does this affect America?  Being that international banks and corporations have forced our countries into interdependency through the engineered chicanery of globalization, any collapse in Europe is going to strike hard around the world, but the worst will hit the U.S. and China.  Which is probably why China is disengaging trade away from the U.S. and the EU and focusing on other developing nations:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/05/08/us-china-economy-trade-idUSBRE84702N20120508

If you thought the Greek rollercoaster was a pain in the neck for investment markets, just wait until the whole of the EU is in a shambles!

Spain is next in line, with a 25% official unemployment rate and a massive black market economy forming.  As I have been saying for years now, when governments disrupt the financial survival of the people, they WILL form their own alternatives, including black markets and barter markets.  It is about survival.  The Spanish government does not care much for these alternatives, though, and has now banned cash transactions over 2500 euros in a futile attempt to squeeze taxes out of the populace through digitally tracked payment methods:

http://thedailybell.com/3814/Spain-Bans-Cash

Another major concern for Americans is the fact that Europeans are inching towards an abandonment of the dollar.  Francois Hollande has openly called for an end to the dollar’s world reserve status, and with a majority backing of the French people, he could easily make this happen, at least where France is concerned.  All it takes is for a few key countries to publically and completely drop the Greenback and the dollar’s reputation as a safe haven investment will be quashed.  This could very well happen before 2012 is over.

QE3 Is The End

Here is the bottom line; U.S. growth is a theater of shadows.  There has been no progress, no recovery, only the misrepresentation of statistics.  Millions of Americans have fallen off unemployment rolls because they have been jobless for too long, which lowers the unemployment rate, but does not change the fact that they are still without work.  Durable goods orders are dropping like an avalanche.  U.S. credit has been lowered yet again by ratings agency Egan-Jones.  With China making bilateral trade deals in numerous countries on the condition that the dollar be dropped as the primary purchasing mechanism, and with the EU turning to economic mulch, the currency’s safety is nonexistent.  Traditional investors who cling to the idea that a falling Euro spells dollar strength will be sorely disappointed when the currency is suddenly being rejected in international currency markets.

The Federal Reserve has already stated that any signs of “relapse” into recession (the recession that we never left) will be met with all options on the table, including QE3:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/04/12/us-usa-fed-idUSBRE83B1KD20120412

I believe that QE3 will probably be announced this year (due in large part to trauma from Europe), and, that this will trigger a mass movement by foreign nations to drop the dollar as the world reserve.  QE3 will be the straw that broke the camel.  How exactly this will play out socially and politically, I do not know (I could take a good guess though).  But, the technical results are predictable.  The Fed will respond to the lack of treasury purchases by ramping up fiat printing in order to cover the ever increasing costs of the government machine.  The Greenback will immediately lose a large portion of its value, at least in terms of imported goods, causing inflation in prices.  Oil and energy prices will skyrocket if OPEC follows suit (which they will, though the Saudis may still honor dollars for a time).  Doing any traditional business will become nearly impossible, and price inflation will dominate the lives and the minds of average unprepared citizens.

The amount of time that it will take for these difficulties to unfold is also not clear.  We are operating in uncharted territory, and dealing with a collapse scenario on a truly planetary scale.  My best advice is to assume that the avalanche will move fast.

While markets in our country have seen only mild disruptions so far this year, their solidity is predicated on a host of props and costume pieces, any one of which could pull the rug out from under America’s suspension of disbelief if it strays but a little from the illusion.  As long as the dollar holds, stocks can be infused with bailout juice through major banks.  So can major companies and even desperate state governments on the verge of bankruptcy.  The Dow will remain relatively friendly, and day traders and the public will remain happy.  As soon as the dollar comes into question, all bets are off…

Does This Mean Doom, Or Just Another Bad Day?

The real beginning of today’s collapse is tied to the events of 2008.  The pace of it has been deceptive, but also, in a way, it is a gift.  Over the past four years, I have personally seen the awakening of thousands of people that may have never had the chance if the system had gone into full spectrum breakdown right away.  The question now is, how much longer can the U.S. wobble along on one wheel?  In my view, and from the evidence I see in markets at the moment, not much longer.

It is hard to set aside any expectations that the next leg down will be easy to digest for the populace.  The reality of our predicament is starting to hit home.  All the tax return checks have been spent.  The credit cards have been maxed.  The new cars have been sold off and traded in for ghetto-mobiles.  The good jobs have been replaced with Taco Bell slavery.  A trip to see The Avengers is now the family vacation.  And, the distractions of reality TV just aren’t buttering our bread anymore.  It’s the little things at first that really signal the financial mood of a society, as well as reveal the more vital and looming issues just over the horizon.

All indicators suggest that this year will be unlike any other before.  In 2008, we saw the first trigger events for the collapse.  In 2008/2009, we saw the creation of the bailout culture, setting the stage for inflation and dollar disintegration.  In 2010, we saw the first bilateral trade deal cutting out the dollar between China and Russia, which is now the template for trade deals all over the globe.  In 2011, we saw the first downgrade of the U.S. credit rating and the crisis in the EU become epidemic.  In 2012, I see not just another difficulty to add to the mountain, but a culmination of all these detriments to produce something entirely new; a vast and subversive realignment forcing many of us to take a more aggressive stance in the fight for an economically and socially free America.

Financial disasters have always been a convenient catalyst for a host of even more frightening obstacles, including civil unrest, and blatant totalitarianism.  This is the cusp.  It is one of those moments that people of later generations read about in awe, and sometimes horror.  The “doom” is not in the event, but in the response.  What we make of the days approaching determines the darkness that they cast upon the future.  It is a test.  It is not something to be dreaded.  It is something to be seized upon, and dealt with, as great men and women before us have done.  At the very least, we know that it is coming.  That, in itself, could well seal our success…

KISSINGER: OBAMA PRIMED TO CREATE “NEW WORLD ORDER”

May 6th, 2012 by

http://www.wnd.com/2009/01/85442/

 

Conflicts across the globe and an international respect for Barack Obama have created the perfect setting for establishment of “a New World Order,” according to Henry Kissinger, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former secretary of state under President Nixon.

Kissinger has long been an integral figure in U.S. foreign policy, holding positions in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. Author of over a dozen books on foreign policy, Kissinger was also named by President Bush as the chairman of the Sept. 11 investigatory commission.

Kissinger made the remark in an interview with CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” hosts Mark Haines and Erin Burnett at the New York Stock Exchange, after Burnett asked him what international conflict would define the Obama administration’s foreign policy.

Read
“Hope of the Wicked,” where author Ted Flynn reveals the greatest
deception in modern history – corporations, foundations and governments
converging to bring about a New World Order.

“The president-elect is coming into office at a moment when there is upheaval in many parts of the world simultaneously,” Kissinger responded. “You have India, Pakistan; you have the jihadist movement. So he can’t really say there is one problem, that it’s the most important one. But he can give new impetus to American foreign policy partly because the reception of him is so extraordinary around the world. His task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period when, really, a new world order can be created. It’s a great opportunity, it isn’t just a crisis.”

The phrase ‘new world order’ traces back at least as far as 1940, when author H.G. Wells used it as the title of a book about a socialist, unified, one-world government. The phrase has also been linked to American presidents, including Woodrow Wilson, whose work on establishing the League of Nations pioneered the concept of international government bodies, and to the first President Bush, who used it in a 1989 speech.

“A new partnership of nations has begun, and we stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment,” said Bush before a joint session of Congress. “Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective – a new world order – can emerge: A new era … in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony.”

The phrase “New World Order” causes alarm for many Americans, particularly those concerned about an international governing body trumping U.S. sovereignty or those that interpret biblical prophecy to foretell the establishment of a one-world government as key to the rise of the Antichrist. Conspiracy theorists, too, have latched on to the phrase, concerned that powerful financial or government figures are secretly plotting to rule the world.

Kissinger’s ties to government and international powers – as well as his use of the phrase – have made him suspect in the eyes of many who are wary of what “new world order” might actually mean.

“There is a need for a new world order,” Kissinger told PBS interviewer Charlie Rose last year, “I think that at the end of this administration, with all its turmoil, and at the beginning of the next, we might actually witness the creation of a new order – because people looking in the abyss, even in the Islamic world, have to conclude that at some point, ordered expectations must return under a different system.”

As WND reported, Kissinger was also part of last year’s super-secret Bilderberg Group, an organization of powerful international elites, including government, business, academic and journalistic representatives, that has convened annually since 1954.

According to sources that have penetrated the high-security meetings, the Bilderberg meetings emphasize a globalist agenda and promote the idea that the notion of national sovereignty is antiquated and regressive.

CNBC’s Haines concluded the Kissinger interview by asking, “Are you confident about the people President-elect Obama has chosen to surround him?”

Kissinger replied, “He has appointed an extraordinarily able group of people in both the international and financial fields.”

Some unprecedented news today, folks. Never in the history of the United Nations has a U.S. President taken the chairmanship of the powerful UN Security Council. Perhaps it is because of what could arguably be a Constitutional prohibition against doing so. To wit: Section 9 of the Constitution says:

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

The UN has a standing military force, we are held to it’s global policies, and we have an Ambassador to the UN just as we do to other foreign States. Clearly the argument can be made that the UN can be considered a foreign State. Our heads of State don’t serve at the UN, Ambassadors do.

Nonetheless, the rotating chairmanship of the UN Security Council goes to the U.S. this month. The normal course of business would have U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice take the gavel. However, this time will be different. Constitution be damned, Barack Hussein Obama has decided to put HIMSELF in the drivers seat, and will preside over global nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament talks slated to begin September 24th. The Financial Times says:

Barack Obama will cement the new co-operative relationship between the US and the United Nations this month when he becomes the first American president to chair its 15-member Security Council.

The topic for the summit-level session of the council on September 24 is nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear disarmament – one of several global challenges that the US now wants to see addressed at a multinational level.

UN officials also hope a climate change debate on September 22 will give fresh impetus to the search for a global climate deal at Copenhagen in December. There are also hopes a possible meeting between Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister, and Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority president, that Mr. Obama would host, could lead to a breakthrough about a timetable for Middle East peace.

Here is what the UN Security Council does. Picture Obama as the Chair of this committee with this power.

Under the UN Charter, the functions and powers of the Security Council are:

* to maintain international peace and security in accordance with the principles and purposes of the United Nations;
* to investigate any dispute or situation which might lead to international friction;
* to recommend methods of adjusting such disputes or the terms ofsettlement;
* to formulate plans for the establishment of a system to regulate armaments;
* to determine the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression and to recommend what action should be taken;
* to call on Members to apply economic sanctions and other measures not involving the use of force to prevent or stop aggression;
* to take military action against an aggressor;
* to recommend the admission of new Members;
* to exercise the trusteeship functions of the United Nations in “strategic areas”;
* to recommend to the General Assembly the appointment of the Secretary-General and, together with the Assembly, to elect the Judges of the International Court of Justice.

No American president has ever attempted to acquire the image of King of the Universe by officiating at a meeting of the UN’s highest body. Obama apparently believes that being flanked by council-member heads of state like Col. Moammar Qaddafi — who is expected to be seated five seats to Obama’s right — will cast a sufficiently blinding spell on Americans.

He undoubtedly hopes that the horrid state of the nation’s economy, turmoil over health care, and a summer of racial scapegoating will pale by comparison. This role as UN Security Council chair will allow him to make decisions, influence legislation and resolutions, and set the agenda.

Right Soup will be closely following this very unsettling turn of events. Like I always say, pay attention to what Obama DOES, not just what he says.

Lord, we pray that you will infect the body and brains of the International Banking Cartel with worms to eat them from the inside out, and all of those who have supported them these many years, and especially this usurper scumbag in the oval office. Send their souls to everlasting torment.

Restore America to a lawful government, and the minds of the citizens to full cognition of the benefits of being independent, self controlled and responsible for their own conduct. Men who need no guidance from anyone but you.

Presidents father not Barack Obama Film

May 1st, 2012 by

 

http://superstore.wnd.com/video/Dreams-from-my-Real-Father-DVD
 

2 years of research, rare photos support compelling case

 

 

"Who's your real Daddy?" is a question that remarkably continues to dog Barack Obama, even as he proceeds into his fourth year as president.

With the release this July of Joel Gilbert's full-length documentary, "Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception," the mystery deepens regarding who Obama really is.

"The film provides the first cohesive understanding of Obama's deep-rooted life journey in socialism, from his childhood to his presidency," Gilbert told WND.

Gilbert rejects the official story that the Kenyan-born Barack Obama was the president's father.

Instead, he argues, Frank Marshall Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the real, biological and ideological father of Barack Obama.

"I decided to investigate Frank Marshall Davis. His close physical resemblance to Obama was shocking, while Obama little resembled the Kenyan Obama," Gilbert said. "How could this be?"

Get "Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception" from WND's Superstore.

Gilbert launched into what became two years of research during which he conducted interviews and discovered rare film footage and photos.

"I unearthed two film archives of Frank Marshall Davis, one from 1973, the other from 1987, as well as Davis' photo collection," he explained. "I then acquired 500 copies of the Honolulu Record, the communist-run newspaper where Davis wrote a weekly political column for eight years." Gilbert's research turned shocking when he obtained seven indecent photos of Ann Dunham, Obama's mother, at Frank Marshall Davis' house, suggesting an intimate connection between Dunham and Davis.

"I was not happy to include these racy photos in the film but found it necessary to substantiate the intimate relationship between the two," he said. "Those photos ended up in a men's mail-order catalog of nude women, likely sold to them by Davis. I placed black bars on parts of the photos to be respectful."

To establish the foundation for the photos, Gilbert documented that Davis was one of the founders of a photography club in Chicago, known as the "Lens Camera Club," and that he specialized in nude photographs.

See the trailer for "Dreams from My Real Father":

 

Later in life, Davis also penned a scurrilous, autobiographical sex novel, titled "Sex Rebel: Black," in which he detailed an illicit sexual relationship with an underage woman named "Anne." Gilbert believes the name was a thin disguise for Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham.

Gilbert reconstructs Obama's autobiography, "Dreams from My Father," and concludes that the tale of the goat-herding father from Kenya is a cover story, concocted to mask an inconvenient pregnancy.

The truth, Gilbert argues, is that Barack Obama II was born from the illicit sexual relationship that rebellious teenager Ann Dunham began with Davis after her parents forced her to move to Hawaii.

Gilbert believes that when Dunham first arrived in Hawaii after graduating from high school, she used the sexual relationship with Davis to act out her frustration that her parents would not permit her to fulfill her wish to attend the University of Washington in Seattle with her Mercer Island High School friends.

In 2010, Gilbert wrote and directed a film titled "Atomic Jihad: Ahmadinejad's Coming War and Obama's Politics of Defeat." "Dreams from My Real Father" will be released this summer, with screenings in theaters across the country currently in the planning process.

Communist roots

The FBI had Davis under surveillance for 19 years, monitoring his support of the Communist Party both in Chicago and in Hawaii.

Gilbert portrays Obama as a "Red Diaper Baby," a phenomenon among the radical left, referred to as "hand-me-down Marxism," in which children of radical parents grow up to be radicals. Such was the case with much of the leadership of Students for a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground, including Obama senior political adviser David Axelrod, who was born to a mother who wrote for a communist newspaper in New York City.

"Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. His father was a goat herder from Kenya, he would bring people together, so it went," Gilbert explained. "While voters will overlook some fudging by politicians, promoting a false family background to hide an agenda irreconcilable with American values is a totally unacceptable manipulation of the electorate."

What Gilbert presents is a direct challenge to the official narrative, arguing it is more likely President Obama has a deeply disturbing family background and a hidden Marxist agenda.

"Unfortunately, Obama's style is to minimize, misdirect, and outright lie about damaging information about his past," Gilbert said. "I hope the media will now demand that he come clean about his family background, his political foundations and fully reveal his agenda for transforming America."

In writing his autobiography, Obama masked his relationship with Davis, naming him only as "Frank," a friend of his grandfather who "lived in a dilapidated house in a run-down section of Waikiki."

Gerald Horne, a contributing editor to "Public Affairs," an openly Marxist political review, made the first positive identification of "Frank" as Frank Marshall Davis.

In March 2007, Horne gave a speech at New York University on the occasion of the Communist Party USA archive being placed at an NYU library.

In that speech, Horne discussed Davis, noting that Davis, who was born in Kansas and lived much of his adult life in Chicago, had moved to Honolulu in 1948 at the suggestion of his good friend, actor Paul Robeson. In the 1940s, Robeson was an outspoken critic of segregation and racial discrimination in the U.S., a strong advocate of the Soviet Union and a member of the Communist Party USA.

Horne also documented Davis's friendship with the Dunham family in Hawaii.

"Eventually, [Davis] befriended another family – a Euro-American family – that had migrated to Honolulu from Kansas, and a young woman from this family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya East Africa who goes by the name of Barack Obama, who, retracing the steps of Davis, eventually decamped to Chicago."

Lorne further stated Davis was "a decisive influence in helping [Obama] to find his present identity as an African-American, a people who have been the least anti-communist and the most left-leaning of any constituency in this nation."

After Horne's speech, the identity of "Frank" was never in doubt, nor his importance in the development of the young Barack Obama.

On Dec. 5, 1956, Davis appeared in executive session before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee investigating "the scope of Soviet activity in the United States," one of the McCarthy-era panels seeking to expose communists considered to be a security threat.

Invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Davis refused to answer a direct question asking if he was then a communist.

A year earlier, in 1955, a Commission on Subversive Activities organized by the government of the Territory of Hawaii identified Davis as a member of the Communist Party USA. The committee singled out for criticism several articles Davis published in the "Communist Honolulu Record" that were critical of the commission.

Get "Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception" from WND's Superstore.

Gilbert documents Obama's association at Columbia University with what was known as the May 19th Communist Organization, an above-ground support group for the Weather Underground based in New York City from 1978 to 1985.

"May 19th" carried out raucous anti-Apartheid and anti-Klan protests and operated a host of front organizations.

At the time, Weather Underground co-founder William Ayers – Obama's Chicago neighbor and colleague in education reform – wrote that May 19th provided "a sea for the guerrillas to swim in."

Some May 19th members committed acts of violence and terrorism, such as the 1981 Nanuet Brinks robbery and murders, the bombing of South African offices in 1981 and the U.S. Capitol bombing in 1983.

"I spoke with a former FBI informant who told me the May 19th Communist Organization had a weapons training camp in the Catskill Mountains, run by former Black Panthers," Gilbert told WND. "In addition, some May 19th members were sent to Cuba for several weeks each year with the Venceremos Brigade, a continuation of the SDS/Weather Underground program begun in the '60s, for explosives training from Cuban intelligence, DGI."

Obama's election was not a sudden political phenomenon, Gilbert maintains.

"It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii and has been quietly infiltrating the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades," he explained. "To understand Obama's plans for America, look no further than communist Frank Marshall Davis."

Challenge the Political Establishments Now or Kiss the Constitution Good-Bye

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD April 25, 2012

 

The United States is no longer what John Adams described as a government of laws and not of men. It has become the opposite.

Many of those presently in the federal government have violated their oaths of office to support and defend the Constitution, they have obstructed justice and they have scorned and rejected citizens' attempts to petition for the redress of grievances.

The continuous stonewalling by both parties' elite is clearly directed toward preventing an investigation that would reveal a federal government riddled with corruption and that operates solely for the benefit of politicians and their wealthy power-brokers.

The conspiracy of silence by the political establishments and the associated news blackout by a compliant media can only be explained by complicity in a cover-up of criminal acts that, if they became known, would enrage the American people and rock the political system to its core.

If there is another explanation, I would like to know it.

The plain fact is that if the candidates were fully vetted and the activities of the Democrat and Republican establishments were fully known, the American people would rise up in open rebellion. 

Between now and Election Day, there is a window of opportunity to fight the permanent political corruption in Washington, D.C., restore the Constitution and uphold the rule of law. After that, it is "Game Over."

As Abraham Lincoln noted, the American people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.  The loyalty of the American people is to our country and our Constitution, not to shady officeholders or petty bureaucrats.

For too long we have been silent and inattentive. We must now overthrow those responsible for the endemic corruption in our federal government.

The American people are frustrated because they have believed that politicians can be informed or influenced in the spirit of representative government. That is impossible because the political establishments represent only themselves, only care about winning elections and the power and wealth it brings to them, not about the principles upon which our country was founded.

Petitioning the current Congress for the redress of grievances is futile. Members of Congress have turned a deaf ear to the voices of their constituents.  They can no longer be trusted as the guardians of our posterity.  In regard to members of Congress, the words of Thomas Paine come to mind:

"The world will be puzzled to decide whether you are an apostate or an impostor; whether you have abandoned good principles, or whether you ever had any."

The political establishments have now decided that they alone will determine which parts of the Constitution they will choose to follow and which ones they prefer to ignore. Their propaganda ministry, the mainstream media, will provide the necessary thought control.

The whims of politicians have replaced the Constitution as the basis for the rule of law in the United States. It is a recipe for chaos.

Thomas Jefferson wrote:

"And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance?"

The first "shots" of the Second American Revolution have not been fired, but the battle lines have been drawn.

The days of education and persuasion of corrupt politicians are over.

The time for resistance has come.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Ok, let’s start from the beginning again, since so many are still enamored with the Original Constitution.

 

The United States exists in two forms: The original United States that was in operation until 1860; a collection of sovereign Republics in the union. Under the original Constitution the States controlled the Federal Government; the Federal Government did not control the States and had very little authority.

The original United States has been usurped by a separate and different UNITED STATES formed in 1871, which only controls the District of Columbia and it’s territories, and which is actually a corporation (the UNITED STATES CORPORATION) that acts as our current government. The United States Corporation operates under Corporate/Commercial/Public Law rather than Common/Private Law.

The original Constitution was never removed; it has simply been dormant since 1871. It is still intact to this day. This fact was made clear by Supreme Court Justice Marshall Harlan (Downes v. Bidwell, 182, U.S. 244 1901) by giving the following dissenting opinion: “Two national governments exist; one to be maintained under the Constitution, with all its restrictions; the other to be maintained by Congress outside and Independently of that Instrument.”

The rewritten Constitution of the UNITED STATES CORPORATION bypasses the original Constitution for the United States of America, which explains why our Congressmen and Senators don’t abide by it, and the President can write Executive Orders to do whatever he/she wants. They are following corporate laws that completely strip sovereigns of their God given unalienable rights. Corporate/Commercial/Public Law is not sovereign (private), as it is an agreement between two or more parties under contract. Common Law (which sovereigns operate under) is not Commercial Law; it is personal and private.

To understand this document, you need to understand some basic terms. for a complete understanding.

The basic terms are:

De Jure – Existing by right or according to law; original, lawful. Common Law operates under De Jure terms.

De Facto – In practice but not necessarily ordained by law; in fact, in reality. Corporate Law operates under De Facto terms.

Sovereign – A real person. Sovereigns can own property while Citizens/Subjects cannot. According to the original Constitution, all government comes from the Sovereign Individual. Without the Sovereign Individual, there is no government.

U.S. Citizen/Subject – A corporate fictitious entity that merely represents the real person. It acts as a “strawman.” [To call oneself a “sovereign citizen” or “sovereign subject” is an oxymoron, since “sovereign” and “citizen/subject” are mutually exclusive of each other.] When asked if you are a “U.S. Citizen” on corporate legal documents, if you check “yes,” you agree to the terms of Corporate Law and unknowingly relinquish your sovereign status and transfer all of your rights to the UNITED STATES CORPORATION since you are now under contract.

Corporation – A non-human, fictitious entity. Corporate fictitious entities are denoted in all caps. This includes the names of Citizens/Subjects. Your fictitious “strawman” entity is addressed in all caps, i.e. JOHN SMITH, rather than John Smith.

Common Law – God’s law. Common Law and the system of De Jure Juries apply to sovereigns in disputes. In Common Law, contracts must be entered into knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally.

Admiralty/Maritime Law/International Law – The King’s law. Deals with criminal acts that only apply to international contracts. Under this law, the people are no longer sovereign. The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) that the United States practices is based on Admiralty Law. Under the UCC, contracts do not have to be entered into knowingly. Simple agreements can be binding, and as long as you exercise the benefits of that “agreement,” you must meet the obligations associated with those benefits. If you accept the benefit offered by the government, then you MUST follow, to the letter, each and every statute involved with that benefit. That “benefit” is the Federal Reserve Notes (U.S. dollars). By paying for things with U.S. dollars you are unknowingly giving up all of your Constitutional rights and are legally obligated to follow all of the UCC statues. But you were NEVER told this. NOTE: this is why we cannot close down the Federal Reserve!

Lawful – A term used in Common Law.

Legal – A term used in the UCC which applies to Corporate Law.

HOW THE CONSTITUTION WAS USURPED BY THE CORPORATION

(note by Panama Legal: These are the basic premises adhered to by the people in the movement and the people in the Sovereign movement. The Government is a Corporation actually functioning as the Federal Government. Thus it does not have to follow the constitution. Also it does not matter if Obama is not a natural born citizen since it is a corporation he is the head of. The corporation gets the permission of the people to reign over them by deceit. This is done by wording in the Birth Certificates, Social Security Cards, driving Licenses, IRS forms, Marriage Licenses and other documents. They always refer to the “person” in all capital letters. This means the name represents a corporate entity. This is how the corporation courts get jurisdiction over you. Their courts do not fly the “reaL” American flag. They use the military or admiralty flag. For a discourse on this try this website: http://www.usavsus.info/

What the theory is goes like this. When you enter a US Courtroom there is a military or admiralty flag flying. The US Military does not have the protection of the constitution, neither does this apply to admiralty laws with ships at sea. When you enter a court room and cross through that little wooden gate they have and go to the area where the plaintiff (prosecutor) and defendant sit along with judge, court reporter, you are entering a “ship” or a foreign country as evidenced by the admiralty or military flag flying thus the constitution has no applicability and you are under equity law not common law. The flaw with their scheme is that there is no full disclosure to the people about any of this. This is brief over simplified synopsis of the scam run by the federal corporation.

Here is a Timeline of events that lead to the current United States.

In 1788 (January 1), The United States was officially bankrupt.

In 1790 (August 4), Article One of the U.S. Statues at Large, pages 138-178, abolished the States of the Republic and created Federal Districts. In the same year, the former States of the Republic reorganized as Corporations and their legislatures wrote new State Constitutions, absent defined boundaries, which they presented to the people of each state for a vote…the new State Constitutions fraudulently made the people “Citizens” of the new Corporate States. A Citizen is also defined as a “corporate fiction.”

In 1845, Congress passed legislation that would ultimately allow Common Law to be usurped by Admiralty Law. www.barefootsworld.net/admiralty.html explains this change. The yellow fringe placed at the bottom of court flags shows this is still true. Before 1845, Americans were considered sovereign individuals who governed themselves under Common Law.

In 1860 – Congress was adjourned Sine Die – Lincoln could not legally reconvene Congress.

In 1861, President Lincoln declared a National Emergency and Martial Law, which gave the President unprecedented powers and removed it from the other branches. This has NEVER been reversed.

In 1863, the Lieber Code was established taking away your property and your rights.

From 1864-1867, Several Reconstruction Acts were passed forcing the states to ratify the 14th Amendment, which made everyone slaves.

In 1865, the capital was moved to Washington, D.C., a separate country – not a part of the United States of America.

In 1871, The United States became a Corporation with a new constitution and a new corporate government, and the original constitutional government was vacated to become dormant, but it was never terminated. The new constitution had to be ratified by the people according to the original constitution, but it never was. The whole process occurred behind closed doors. The people are the source of financing for this new government.

In 1917, the Trading with the Enemy Act (TWEA) was passed. This insightful video from [link to movielocker.com/4084)] states the following: “This act was implemented to deal with the countries we were at war with during World War I. It gave the President and the Alien Property Custodian the right to seize the assets of the people included in this act and if they wanted to do business in this country they could apply for a license to do so. By 1921, the Federal Reserve Bank (the trustee for the Alien Property Custodian) held over $700,000,000 in trust.” Understand that this trust was based on our assets, not theirs.

In 1933, 48 Stat 1, of the TWEA was amended to include the United States Person because they wanted to take our gold away. Executive Order 6102 was created to make it illegal for a U.S. Citizen to own gold. In order for the Government to take our gold away and violate our Constitutional rights, we were reclassified as ENEMY COMBATANTS.”

In 1933, there was a second United States bankruptcy. In the first bankruptcy the United States collateralized all public lands. In the 1933 bankruptcy, the U.S. government collateralized the private lands of the people (a lien) – they borrowed money against our private lands. They were then mortgaged. That is why we pay property taxes.

 

From a speech in Congress in The Bankruptcy of the United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993, Vol. 33, page H-1303, Speaker Representative James Trafficant Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House states:

“…It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 – Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.

The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. All United States Offices, Officials, and Departments are now operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War Powers. With the Constitutional Republican form of Government now dissolved, the receivers of the Bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the United States. This new form of government is known as a Democracy, being an established Socialist/Communist order under a new governor for America. This act was instituted and established by transferring and/or placing the Office of the Secretary of Treasury to that of the Governor of the International Monetary Fund. Public Law 94-564, page 8, Section H.R. 13955 reads in part: “The U.S. Secretary of Treasury receives no compensation for representing the United States…

Prior to 1913, most Americans owned clear, allodial title to property, free and clear of any liens of mortgages until the Federal Reserve Act (1913) “Hypothecated” all property within the Federal United States to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, in which the Trustees (stockholders) held legal title. The U.S. Citizen (tenant, franchisee) was registered as a “beneficiary” of the trust via his/her birth certificate. In 1933, the Federal United States hypothecated all of the present and future properties, assets, and labor of their “subjects,” the 14th Amendment U.S. Citizen to the Federal Reserve System. In return, the Federal Reserve System agreed to extend the federal United States Corporation all of the credit “money substitute” it needed.

Like any debtor, the Federal United States government had to assign collateral and security to their creditors as a condition of the loan. Since the Federal United States didn’t have any assets, they assigned the private property of their “economic slaves,” the U.S. Citizens, as collateral against the federal debt. They also pledged the unincorporated federal territories, national parks, forests, birth certificates, and nonprofit organizations as collateral against the federal debt. All has already been transferred as payment to the international bankers.

Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American Revolution feudal roots whereby all land is held by a sovereign and the common people had no rights to hold allodial title to property. Once again, We the People are the tenants and sharecroppers renting our own property from a Sovereign in the guise of the Federal Reserve Bank. We the People have exchanged one master for another.”

In 1944, Washington D.C. was deeded to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) by the Breton Woods Agreement. The IMF is made up of wealthy people that own most of the banking industries of the world. It is an organized group of bankers that have taken control of most governments of the world so the bankers run the world. Congress, the IRS, and the President work for the IMF. The IRS is not a U.S. government agency. It is an agency of the IMF. (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law 94-564, Senate Report 94-1148 pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391.)

HOW CAN WE REPAIR OUR COUNTRY RIGHT NOW?

“The Supreme Court has said the De Jure Government offices still exist but the people have failed to occupy them.

Remember Downs v. Bidwell and the dissenting opinion of Justice Marshall Harlan? He said that two national governments exist; one to be maintained under the Constitution, with all its restrictions. This is one that We the people need to force our elected public officials to occupy – De Jure rule.

We need to change that by organizing Grand Juries and putting our officials back under De jure rule and out of the Corporate (or Military) Rule that they are currently operating under.

Our elected officials will then have to operate under the limits of their Oath of office to uphold the U.S. and State Constitutions, circa 1860. When they violate the Oath it’s a capital crime.

The reason we go back to 1860 is because that is the last time we had lawful laws in this country.

Where do the people get their power to convene a Grand Jury? The Magna Carta, 1215.

Our Founding Fathers looked back to history for precedent when they decided they wanted to change their government. What they found was the Magna Carta Liberatum, the Great Charter of Freedoms. It set a precedent that changed the face of England forever, by establishing that the King was not above the law.

King John of England signed the Magna Carta after immense pressure from the Church and his barons (the people). The King often lived above the law, violating both Feudal and Common Law, and was heavily criticized for his foreign policy and actions in England. The Barons, with the support of the Church, pressured King John to spell out a list of their rights and guarantee that those rights would be enforced. The Barons provided a draft, and after some negotiation, King John put his seal to the Magna Carta in Runnymede, in June of 1215.

Section 61 set rules for establishing the Grand Jury. It states: Since we have granted all these things for God, for the better ordering of our kingdom, and to allay the discord that has arisen between us and our barons (people), and since we desire that they shall be enjoyed in their entirety, with lasting strength, forever, we give and grant to the barons the following security: The barons shall elect twenty-five of their number to keep, and cause to be observed with all their might, the peace and liberties granted and confirmed to them by this charter. If we, our chief justice, our officials, or any of our servants offend in any respect against any man, or transgress any of the articles of the peace or of this security, and the offense is made known to four of the said twenty-five barons, they shall come to us.”

Well. Lots of luck with that one folks!

At this point, it should be evident to anyone with a cranial capacity the size of a tea cup that FORCE is the deciding factor, not law. So, all of you cowpokes who want the original Constitution back better pony up and lock & load. And, be prepared to kill your brothers in uniform who have missed a few classes in history. Does CIVIL WAR come to mind? THAT is what it will take to get your precious De Jure Constitution back. Not ready for that? Well then, go back to bitching about those scumbags in congress who are laughing their fat ass off, and getting rich in the process. OH, and don’t forget to vote!

Fellow American’s, there is thousands of citizen’s out there that have a far higher comprehension of this legal crap than I do, and for many years they have tried this and that to regain our beloved Constitution and rule of law, but for every attempt, nothing has worked, and will not in the future unless the entire Nation is re-educated, which I cannot see happening. Do not mis-understand my sarcasm, it is the result of a heart broken old man that truly feels a sense of responsibility for this mess, and a deep shame for my fellow citizens who prefer slavery over death on the field of battle. Is life in bondage so precious that you would accept it without a fight? As for me, I would rather be a quadriplegic than give respect to these Bastards in DC, and only my advanced age and lack of strength keeps me from sending as many of them as possible to hell where they belong. PLEASE,,, read this article over and over, until you feel like a man who has just been notified his wife and daughters have been raped and murdered. Only then will you understand my rage!

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

Why Is It Necessary For The Federal Government To Turn The United States Into A Prison Camp?

April 23rd, 2012 by

http://www.prisonplanet.com/why-is-it-necessary-for-the-federal-government-to-turn-the-united-states-into-a-prison-camp.html

Economic Collapse Blog

There has been no society in the history of the world that has ever been 100% safe.  No matter how much money the federal government spends on “homeland security”, the truth is that bad things will still happen.  Our world is a very dangerous place and it is becoming increasingly unstable.  The federal government could turn the entire country into one giant prison camp, but that would still not keep us safe.  It is inevitable that bad stuff will happen in life.  But we have a choice.  We can choose to live in fear or we can choose to live as free men and women.  Our forefathers intended to establish a nation where liberty and freedom would be maximized.  But today we are told that we have to give up our liberties and our freedoms and our privacy for increased security.  But is such a trade really worth it?  Just think of the various totalitarian societies that we have seen down throughout history.  Have any of them ever really thrived?  Have their people been happy?  Unfortunately, the U.S. federal government has decided that the entire country needs to be put on lock down.  Nearly everything that we do today is watched and tracked, and personal privacy is rapidly becoming a thing of the past.  Many of the things that George Orwell wrote about in 1984 are becoming a reality, and that is a very frightening thing.  The United States is supposed to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.  Sadly, we are rapidly becoming the exact opposite of that.

I don’t know about you, but I never signed up to live in North Korea.  When I was growing up I was taught that repressive regimes such as North Korea are “the bad guys” and that America is where “the good guys” live.

So why do we want to be just like North Korea?

When they put in the naked body scanners at U.S. airports and started having TSA agents conduct “enhanced pat-downs” of travelers, I decided that I was not going to fly anymore unless absolutely necessary.

Then I heard about how “random bag checks” were being conducted at Metro train stations in the Washington D.C. area, and I was glad that I was no longer taking the train into D.C. anymore.

But now the TSA is showing up everywhere.  Down in Houston, undercover TSA agents and police officers will now “ride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior.”

So now I have another thing to add to my list of things that I can’t do anymore.

No more riding buses for me.

But the truth is that you can’t escape this expanding security grid no matter how hard you try.

In fact, TSA “VIPR teams” conduct approximately 8,000 “unannounced security screenings”every year at bus terminals, train stations, ports and highway rest stops throughout the United States.

Look, every society needs some level of security.  There are always bad guys out there that want to harm innocent people.

But in the United States we must demand that those in charge of our security do their jobs in a way that does not compromise our dignity, our liberties or our freedoms.

Does having TSA thugs touch the private parts of old women and young children before they get on their flights keep us any safer?

Of course not.

But it does move our country in a very dangerous direction.

The reality is that this “Big Brother control grid” that is being constructed all around us is expanding in a thousand different ways.

For example, a new bill before the U.S. Congress would require black box data recorders to be installed in all new vehicles starting in 2015.  These black box data recorders will be able to constantly transmit data about everything that your car is  doing to the government and to the insurance companies.  The following is from a recent article by Eric Peters….

And naturally, they – the government, insurance companies – will be able to track your every move, noting (and recording) where you’ve been and when. This will create a surveillance net beyond anything that ever existed previously. Some will not sweat this: After all, if you’ve got nothing to hide, why worry? Except for the fact that, courtesy of almost everything we do being either “illegal” or at least “suspicious” we all have a great deal to hide. The naivety of the Don’t Worry, it’s No Big Deal crowd is breathtaking. Did the average Soviet citizen also “not have anything to hide,” and hence why worry?

But the last possibility is probably the creepiest possibility: EDRs tied into your car’s GPS will give them – the government and its corporate **** ******* (edited for language) – literal physical control over (hack) “your” vehicle. This is not conspiracy theorizing. It is technological fact. Current GM vehicles equipped with the same technology about to be mandated for every vehicle can be disabled remotely. Just turned off. All the OnStar operator has to do is send the appropriate command over the GPS to your car’s computer, which controls the engine. It is one of the features touted by OnStar – of course, as a “safety” feature.

In the future, it will be used to limit your driving – for the sake of “energy conservation” or perhaps, “the environment.” It will be the perfect, er, vehicle, for implementing U.N. Agenda 21 – the plan to herd all of us formerly free-range tax cattle into urban feedlots. So much easier to control us this way. No more bailing out to the country or living off the grid – unless you get there (and to your work) by walking.

Even when you are sitting at home you are still being watched and monitored in countless ways.

For example, every single call you make on your cell phone is intercepted and monitored by the government.

Your Internet activity is tracked and monitored by a whole host of government agencies as well.  If you doubt this, just read this article.

Now CISPA would expand government surveillance of the Internet even further.  The following description of CISPA comes from the Electronic Frontier Foundation website….

CISPA creates an exception to all privacy laws to permit companies to share our information with each other and with the government in the name of cybersecurity…. CISPA’s ‘information sharing’ regime allows the transfer of vast amounts of data, including sensitive information like internet use history or the content of emails, to any agency in the government including military and intelligence agencies like the National Security Agency or the Department of Defense Cyber Command. Once in government hands, this information can be used for any non-regulatory purpose so long as one significant purpose is for cybersecurity or to protect national security.

Frightening stuff, eh?

I want you to imagine a scenario for a moment.  Imagine that the government assigned two “watchers” to you that followed you everywhere you went and stared directly into your face the entire time.

Would you feel comfortable?

Why not?

You don’t have anything to hide, do you?

Well, of course the truth is that none of us would like having our privacy constantly invaded.  It is not pleasant to constantly feel like you are being watched.

That is why all of these new “security measures” are so alarming.  A system is being set up where all of us are being constantly watched and monitored 24 hours a day.

And most Americans have no idea how fast the transition to full martial law could potentially be.

Barack Obama recently updated an old executive order that has been around for decades that would enable him to take charge of all food, all energy, all health resources and all transportation resources in the United States with the stroke of a pen.  This new update would allow him to do it even in “non-emergency” situations.

The following is what U.S. Representative Kay Granger recently had to say about this executive order….

This means all of our water resources, construction services and materials (steel, concrete, etc.), our civil transportation system, food and health resources, our energy supplies including oil and natural gas – even farm equipment – can be taken over by the President and his cabinet secretaries.  The Government can also draft U.S. citizens into the military and force U.S. citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of “national defense.”  There is not even any Congressional oversight, only briefings are required.

Later on in her letter, Representative Granger even used the phrases “martial law” and “government takeover” to describe the power that Barack Obama potentially has under this executive order….

It is still unclear why this order was signed now, and what the consequences are for our nation – especially during times of peace.  This type of Martial Law imposes a government takeover on U.S. citizens that is typically reserved for national emergencies, not in a time of relative peace.

Do you trust Barack Obama with that kind of power?

Unfortunately, considering the really bad decisions that all of our government officials regularly make, it is really hard to trust any of them to do the right thing at this point.

The American people need to let their voices be heard on these issues.  If not, the federal government will continue to strip away our privacy, our liberties and our freedoms until everything is gone.

Do you want your children to grow up in a country that has been turned into a giant prison camp and that more closely resembles North Korea than it does the nation that our forefathers originally founded?

If not, please do what you can to speak out against these abuses.

The truth is that the federal government does not really even care about our national security anyway.

If they did, they would secure our borders.  Just today I read that the National Guard is withdrawing 900 troops from the U.S.-Mexico border.  Our border security is already a total joke and now it is going to be even worse.

Over the past several decades, tens of millions of people have crossed that border illegally.  Every single day, terrorists, drug dealers, gang members, sexual predators and a whole host of other “bad guys” could be crossing that border and we would never even know about it because we aren’t doing anything to stop it.

For nearly 60 years, the U.S. government has successfully protected the border between South Korea and North Korea, but the U.S. government flatly refusesto protect our own borders.

Until the federal government decides to do what the U.S. Constitution requires them to do and start protecting our borders, then the federal government should not be asking any of us to make a single sacrifice in the name of “security”.

The truth is that we can have a reasonable level of security in this nation without giving up the liberties and the freedoms that millions of Americans have shed their blood to protect.

We do not need to turn the United States into a giant prison camp.  America is supposed to be the land of the free, and we need to work hard to get that dream back.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

The internet gives plenty of evidence that there are thousands of people like me who are spending 80 to 100 hour weeks searching for, and publishing information on how and why America is going down, but the difficulty in provoking the average citizen into participating seems to be getting harder. This seems to me to be against the human instinct for survival, and supports the claims some make that we have been chemically assaulted in various ways until the majority of American’s are now intellectually euthanized. They are faced with so many conflicting ideas that their brains cannot process them. It is like watching thousands of people taking a short cut home through a swamp full of alligators and remain unaware of the danger, because they are too tired to take the long way. I have never encountered anything so frustrating in my 71 years. Even my family ignores my warnings. They do so because they are aware of my pit-bull character when someone bites me, and I remain unable to understand how they could let someone bite them and not take their head off. Another analogy would be an army of one thousand facing an army of one million and deciding to surrender, when they have seen with their own eyes how that army brutalizes their prisoners. How can one account for such mind numbing cowardice? If we cannot inspire fifty million citizens to get educated and infuriated from their new knowledge, all that is left is to charge the million-man army with our bare hands, because they are intent on disarming us. Please folks, for the love of sanity, get educated, and get really pissed off. Being a slave is NOT AN OPTION FOR THIS OLDDOG, AND YOU WON’T LIKE IT EITHER. I’m beginning to feel like a Marine recruiter in a kindergarten.

Police State Indoctrination of the Young

http://docmedina.blogspot.com/2012/04/police-state-indoctrination-of-young.html

A police officer walks into a middle school classroom. No, this is not the opening line of a joke, this actually happened at a local school and maybe happening in a school near you. The police officer proceeded to tell the class that, disrupting the class was a felony and she would have no problem arresting a kid, taking them directly to jail, and not even calling the kids' parents. This from an officer said to have expressed her desire for something to happen at school since she misses patrolling the street. 

Another interesting point is that this teacher had, only a few months back, covered The Constitution and Bill of Rights in her classes. The same teacher then brought in a uniformed officer to tell kids their rights would be trampled if they dared disrupt the class. During my time in school it was not uncommon that a class would have 36 students, some of them unruly, to one teacher. Yet, I don't remember a teacher ever calling an officer in to handle their classroom for them. 

What of the officer attempting to help the ineffective teacher? We the people delegate our power to a select few public servants to keep order in our community. We trust these individuals to be of good character and sound judgment. Threatening school kids with violating their civil rights seems to be outside the scope of what these "officials" (public servants) are paid to do. If an officer ever decides to act in this manner with a child, the taxpayers will be on the hook for trial expenses in defense of he officer and a settlement for a violation of civil rights. 

To further bring this issue into focus, consider the following: Say you're on your lunch break, at work, talking to a co-worker as you walk to the restroom. Just then, a police officer stops you and asks where you are going. How would you feel? How would you feel if you were a child? Just another action, the above-mentioned officer, is said to routinely take. 

The National Association of School Resource Officers had this to say about their own surveys, which are significant to expanding the program and obtaining funding: "NASRO surveys are intentionally not designed as… long-term scientific academic studies." Basically they ask hundreds of SROs, while at a conference (paid vacation) if they see reasons why the program should continue (or why they should get another paid vacation when the next conference comes around). Think I may be reaching on this fact? The 2012 conference is July 15-20th at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno, Nevada. 

According to the U.S.D.J. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention-, "The perception of imminent danger in the school environment has become common place in many communities, leaving parents, students, and school personnel with, at best a tenuous sense of security. The School Resource Officer concept offers an approach to improving school security and alleviating community fears." 

According to the reasoning of a combat veteran, having seen the frailty of human life first hand, I perceive danger to be imminent in almost all aspects of daily life. Should we have police at our workplace, doctors office, grocery store, and in our homes to alleviate possible fears? Our schools are turning into conditioning camps for the thriving police state our nation is quickly becoming. Parents, please talk to your children; You may find this to be common place in many schools across the land of the free and home of the brave. Doesn’t that make you sick?

Stand your ground.

April 20th, 2012 by

Don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here."

attributed to Captain John Parker, Massachusetts militia,  on Lexington green, 4/19/1775

 

I want to ask you to do me a favor. Mark your calendar for this coming Thursday the 19th. I'm sure that most of your calendars don't highlight that day. I know for sure the left and the media will not remind you.

 

On that day,  April 19 1775,  237 years ago, a group of patriots decided they had had enough and stood their ground at Lexington and Concord. They had had enough of tyranny, abuse by their government, and over bearing taxes. Sound familiar?

 

Take a moment on Thursday and reflect on the meaning of that day. Think of the risks those patriots were willing to take in order to win their freedom. I believe the most important freedom is that of 'Freedom of Choice.' Also, think of what has happened to this great Republic in the last few generations. Let us all endeavor to ensure that their sacrifice, and of those since, was not in vain.

 

BTW: Don't forget that the mission of the British that day was to confiscate weapons.

When the Spartans at Thermopylae were ordered by the Persians to surrender their weapons, they responded Molon Labe — "Come and Take them"

That is my response to anyone who would disarm me and mine.

To a warrior, the golf course is a willful and deliberate misuse of a perfectly good rifle range!

Food for thought! Would you stand with me if we faced our own troops? Do you understand WHO our real enemy is?

I know some of you reading this have not been doing your home work and are unaware of what has happened to America, and to you I will be perceived as another hot headed old man unwilling to merge with the newer generation, to that, I say you still have your head up your ass, you are too lazy to do the research, too cowardly to accept reality, and too stupid to recognize the danger imposed on us by our own government. Surely, if you knew what is really going on in DC, you would be burning up the phone lines to Congress, writing letters to them daily, and telling them what you really think of them, and you are not going down without a fight. Look around your neighborhood, do you not see a lack of activity, are you staying home more so than in the past? Are you even aware of how much America has changed in the past three years, let alone the past generation? Do you have any idea of how you are going to live in the next decade? Why are you not infuriated all the time? Do you really believe that shit just happens, and does not require a purposeful action to instigate it? Mark these words, we will not be able to go to the store and buy food, without permission in the near future, or afford the gas to drive there, and the only way this is going to stop is for you to become aware of reality, get really pissed off, and get on the governments ass, and stay there until they squeal. We need fifty million pissed off American’s to stop this, and you need to be one of them! Start learning! Get mad! STAND UP! Be prepared to die fighting for our freedom!

A Progressive Perverts the Commerce Clause, but O’Reilly Gets it Right!

April 18th, 2012 by

By Publius Huldah  

Bill O’Reilly (Fox News) made our Framers proud when,on March 26, 2012, he correctly explained [probably for the first time ever on TV] the genuine meaning of the interstate commerce clause. O’Reilly’s guest was Big Government Progressive Caroline Fredrickson, Esq., of the inaptly named “American Constitution Society”.  In trying to defend Obamacare, she said that our Framers intended to grant to Congress extensive powers over the “national economy”:

“When the Founding Fathers adopted the Constitution, they put in the commerce clause ah specifically so that Congress could actually regulate interstate commerce.  They envisioned a national economy, and we really have one now, and to the tune of over two trillion dollars, health care makes up a big big part of that and so it’s completely within the power of ah Congress to pass this legislation [Obamacare] and to attempt to provide some reasonable regulation…”

But what she said is not true! Accordingly, O’Reilly responded:

“The interstate commerce clause was put in so individual States could not charge tariffs [for] going from one state to another.  So, for example, Pennsylvania would say to New Jersey, ‘Hey, you can’t bring in anything here from New Jersey unless you pay us 2% on it.’ ”

Bravo, O’Reilly!  That is precisely the purpose of the interstate commerce clause.  James Madison, Father of our Constitution, wrote in Federalist No. 42 (9th para):

“… A very material object of this power [to regulate interstate commerce] was the relief of the States which import and export through other States, from the improper contributions levied on them by the latter. Were these at liberty to regulate the trade between State and State … ways would be found out to load the articles of import and export, during the passage through their jurisdiction, with duties which would fall on the makers of the latter and the consumers of the former…”

And Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 22 (4th para):

“…’ The commerce of the German empire … is in continual trammels from the multiplicity of … duties which the several princes and states exact upon the merchandises passing through their territories, by means of which the … navigable rivers [of] … Germany … are rendered almost useless.’ Though the … people of this country might never permit this … to be … applicable to us, yet we may … expect, from the … conflicts of State regulations, that the citizens of each would … come to be … treated by the others in no better light …”

So!  What our Framers actually said was that the purpose of the interstate commerce clause is to authorize Congress to prevent the States from imposing tolls and tariffs on articles of import and export – merchandize – as they are transported through the States for purposes of buying and selling.1

But Fredrickson apparently has no idea what our Framers said.  She dug deeper:

“Actually this was a major issue at stake in the adoption of the Constitution was the ability of our national government to deal with national issues and, let’s look a little bit at what’s happened in the 20th century…”

What?  Our Framers made a “major issue” of their determination to grant to Congress power over whatever it might in the future deem to be a “national issue”?

No Way!  What Fredrickson said is demonstrably not true.  Our Framers said the exact opposite of what she represented. In Federalist No. 45 (9th para), Madison identified the “national issues” Congress would be dealing with:

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.  The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; … The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people….” [boldface mine]

In Federalist No. 39 (3rd para from end):

“…the proposed government cannot be deemed a national one; since its jurisdiction extends to certain enumerated objects only, and leaves to the several States a residuary and inviolable sovereignty over all other objects.” [boldface mine]

and in Federalist No. 14 (8th para):

“…the general [federal] government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects.…” [boldface mine]

Do you see?  Our Framers drafted a Constitution which established a Federation of Sovereign States united only for the limited purposes enumerated in the Constitution. The powers of each of the three branches of the federal government are carefully limited and defined. See: Congress’ enumerated powers, the President’s enumerated powers, and the Judicial Branch’s enumerated powers.  Our Constitution does not delegate general legislative powers over the Country at large to Congress!  Ours is a Constitution of enumerated powers only.  And nothing – nothing – in the Constitution authorizes the federal government to control the provision – or denial – of medical care to The People.  Thus, Obamacare is altogether unconstitutional as outside the scope of the legislative powers delegated to Congress by Our Constitution.

Folks! Do not believe what you hear people saying about Our Constitution on TV or the Radio.  Most of them don’t know what they are talking about, or they are lying. Only rarely does anyone get it right as O’Reilly did. So you must check things out for yourself. And always demand Proof! PH

End Note:
1 For a more definitive explanation of the genuine meaning of the interstate commerce clause, and more irrefutable proof from primary sources, see: Does The Interstate Commerce Clause Authorize Congress To Force Us To Buy Health Insurance?  Progressives!  Read it and rebut it, if you can. PH

Federal reserve banking system

April 15th, 2012 by

http://www.nesaranews.blogspot.com/2012/04/federal-reserve-banking-system.html

 

Now that we know the Federal Reserve is a privately owned, for-profit corporation,

 a natural question would be: who OWNS this company?

Peter Kershaw provides the answer in "Economic Solutions"

where he lists the ten primary shareholders in the Federal Reserve banking system.

1) The Rothschild Family – London

2) The Rothschild Family – Berlin

3) The Lazard Brothers – Paris

4) Israel Seiff – Italy

5) Kuhn-Loeb Company – Germany

6) The Warburgs – Amsterdam

7) The Warburgs – Hamburg

8) Lehman Brothers – New York

9) Goldman & Sachs – New York

10) The Rockefeller Family – New York

Now I don't know about you, but something is terribly wrong with this situation. Namely, don't we live in AMERICA? If so, why are seven of the top ten stockholders located in FOREIGN countries? That's 70%! To further convey how screwed-up this system is, Jim Marrs provides the following data in his phenomenal book, "Rule By Secrecy.

" He says that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which undeniably controls the other eleven Federal Reserve branches, is essentially controlled by two financial institutions:
1) Chase-Manhattan (controlled by the Rockefellers) – 6,389,445 shares – 32.3%
2) Citbank – 4,051,851 shares – 20.5%

Thus, these two entities control nearly 53% of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. Doesn't that boggle your mind? Now, considering how many trillions of dollars are involved here, and how the bankers are WAY above our "selected" officials in Washington, D.C., do you think the above-listed banks and families have an inordinate amount of say-so in how our country is being run? The answer is blindingly apparent.

Where does the money come from?
We all know that the Federal Reserve CORPORATION prints money – then loans it, at interest, to our government. But wait until you see what a total scam this process is. But before we get to the meat of this issue, let's remember one thing about the very essence of banking – primarily that money should have some type of standard upon which its value is based. In the case of America, we operate on what is called a "gold standard" (i.e. our money is backed by gold).

So, with that in mind, let's look at how money is actually created, and at what cost. If the Federal Reserve wants to print 1,000 one-hundred ($100) bills, their total cost for ink, paper, plates, labor, etc. would be approximately $23.00 (according to Davvy Kidd in "Why A Bankrupt America"). Now, if you do the math, the total cost of 10,000 bills would be $230.00 ($.023 x 10,000). But, and here's the catch – 10,000 $100 bills equals $1,000,000! So, the Federal Reserve can "create" a million dollars, then LEND it to the U.S. Government (with interest) for a total cost of $230.00! That's not a bad deal, huh!

The banking industry calls this process "seignorage." I call it outright THEFT. Why? Well, regardless of the immense profit margin ($1,000,000 for $230), plus the huge interest payments, our government then needs to STEAL the American people's money to payoff their debts via a Mob-like agency called the IRS. So the bankers steal from the government, then the government turns around and steals from the people. I'm no genius, but who do you think is getting screwed in this process? US – the people at the bottom rung of the ladder.

What's worse is that – now catch your breath – there's NO MORE gold left in Fort Knox! It's all gone. In other words, the GOLD STANDARD that our financial system was based upon is now an illusion. We can't convert our money into gold — only other currency. The entire underlying basis for our money is now a lie – a sham. The Federal Reserve has become so arrogant that they've become a literal MONEY MAKING MACHINE, creating currency out of thin air! So that's where the Fed gets their money – they literally make it, then lend it to us so they can make even MORE money off of it.

Money As A Religion

The above-detailed process has become so ridiculous that William Grieder, former assistant managing editor of the Washington Post, wrote a book in 1987 entitled, "Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country" that details how the Controllers have conditioned us to accept this absurd situation.

To modern minds," he writes, "it seemed bizarre to think of the Federal Reserve as a religious institution. Yet the conspiracy theorists, in their own demented way, were on to something real and significant. The Fed did also function in the realm of religion. Its mysterious powers of money creation, inherited from priestly forebears, shielded a complex bundle of social and psychological meanings. With its own form of secret incantation, the Federal Reserve presided over awesome social ritual, transactions so powerful and frightening they seemed to lie beyond common understanding."

Mr. Grieder continues, "Above all, money was a function of faith. It required implicit and universal social consent that was indeed mysterious. To create money and use it, each one must believe, and everyone must believe. Only then did worthless pieces of paper take on value.
"
Do you get it? MONEY is an ILLUSION! Why? Because the gold standard upon which our money is supposed to be based has been eliminated. There's no more gold in Fort Knox. It's all GONE! Now, money really IS only paper!!! In the past, money was supposed to represent something of tangible value.
Now it's simply paper!

Taken one step further, many of us don't even use paper money any more! Why? Well, here's a scenario. Many places of employment directly deposit their employee's paychecks into the bank. Once the money is there, when bill time comes around, the person in question can write out a stack of checks to pay them. Plus, when they need gasoline they use a credit card; and groceries a debit card. If this person goes out for dinner on Friday night, they can charge the tab on their diner's card. But what about the tip? They simply scribble in the amount at the bottom of the check. So far, the person hasn't spent a single dollar bill. Plus, if you bring electronic banking into the picture, we've virtually eliminated the use for money.

And, God forbid, what happens when encoded microchips are implanted into the backs of our hand?
In essence, money has become nothing more than an illusion – an electronic figure or amount on a computer screen. That's it! As time goes on, we have an increasing tendency toward being sucked into this Wizard of Oz vortex of unreality. Think about it. Americans as a whole are carrying more personal debt than in any other time in history. Plus our government keeps going further and further into the hole, with no hope of ever crawling out. But we have less and less actual MONEY! We're being enslaved by the debt of electronic blips on a computer screen! And 70% of the banks that control this debt via the Federal Reserve exist in foreign countries! What in God's name is going on?

 

As author William Bramley says, "The result of this whole system is MASSIVE debt at every level of society."
We're getting screwed in a sickening way, folks, and the people doing it are demented magician-priests that use the ILLUSION of money as their control device. And I hate to say it, but if we allow things to keep going as they are, the situation will only get worse. Our only hope … ONLY HOPE … is to immediately take drastic action and remedy this crime.

Historical Outline

1st:   Martial Law is declared by President Lincoln on April 24th, 1863, with General Orders No. 100; under martial law authority, Congress and President Lincoln institute continuous martial law by ordering the states (people) either conscribe troops and or provide money in support of the North or be recognized as enemies of the nation;

 this martial law Act of Congress is still in effect today.  This martial law authority gives the President (with or without Congress) the dictatorial authority to do anything that can be done by government in accord with the Constitution of the United States of America.  This conscription act remains in effect to this very day and is the foundation of Presidential Executive Orders authority; it was magnified in 1917 with The Trading with the Enemy Act (Public Law 65-91, 65th Congress, Session I, Chapters 105, 106, October 6, 1917). and again in 1933 with the Emergency War Powers Act, which is ratified and enhanced almost every year to this date by Congress. 

Today these Acts address the people of the United States themselves as their enemy.

 

2nd:   The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871 created a private corporation (hereinafter “Corp. U.S.”, Trademark name, “United States Government”) owned and operated by the actual government for the purpose of carrying out the business needs of the government under martial law.  This was done under the constitutional authority for Congress to pass any law within the ten mile square of Washington, District of Columbia.

  (link to pdf image file of the full 1871 Act)

 

3rd:   In said Act, Corp. U.S. adopted their own constitution (United States Constitution),

which was identical to the national Constitution (Constitution of the United States of America)

 except that it was missing the national constitution's 13th Amendment

and the national constitution's 14th, 15th and 16th amendments

are respectively numbered 13th, 14th and 15th amendments in the Corp. U.S. Constitution.

  At this point take special notice and remember this Corp. U.S. method of adopting their own Constitution, they will add to it in the same manner in 1913.

 

4th:   Corp. U.S. began to generate debts via bonds etc., which came due in 1912, but they could not pay their debts so the 7 families that bought up the bonds demanded payment and Corp. U.S. could not pay.  Said families settled the debt for the payments of all of Corp. U.S.' assets and for all of the assets of the Treasury of the United States of America.

 

5th:   As 1913 began, Corp. U.S. had no funds to carry out the necessary business needs of the government so they went to said families and asked if they could borrow some money.  The families said no (Corp. U.S. had already demonstrated that they would not repay their debts in full).  The families had foreseen this situation and had the year before finalized the creation of a private corporation of the name "Federal Reserve Bank".  Corp. U.S. formed a relationship with the Federal Reserve Bank whereby they could transact their business via note rather than with money.  Notice that this relationship was one made between two private corporations and did not involve government; that is where most people error in understanding the Federal Reserve Bank system—again it has

no government relation at all.  The private contracts that set the whole system up even recognize that if anything therein proposed is found illegal or impossible to perform it is excluded from the agreements and the remaining elements remain in full force and effect.

 

6th:   Almost simultaneously with the last fact (also in 1913), Corp. U.S. adopts (as if ratified) their own 16th amendment.  Tax protesters challenge the IRS tax collection system based on this fact, however when we remember that Corp. U.S. originally created their constitution by simply drafting it and adopting it; there is no difference between that adoption and this—such is the nature of corporate enactments.  You must also note that this amendment has nothing to do with our nation, with our people or with our national Constitution, which already had its own 16th amendment.  The Supreme Court ruled that it did nothing that was not already done other than to make plain and clear the right of the United States (Corp. U.S.) to tax corporations.  We agree, considering that they were created under the authority of Corp. U.S.

 

7th:   Next (also 1913) Corp. U.S., through Congress, adopts (as if ratified) its 17th amendment. 

 This amendment is not only not ratified, it is not constitutional; the nation's Constitution forbids Congress from even discussing the matter of where Senators are elected, which is the subject matter of this amendment.  According to the United States Supreme Court, for Congress to propose such an amendment they would first have to pass an amendment that gave them the authority to discuss the matter.

 

8th:   Accordingly, in 1914, the Freshman class and all Senators that successfully ran for reelection in 1913

 by popular vote were seated in Corp. U.S. Senate capacity only; their respective seats from their States

remained vacant because neither the State Senates nor the State Governors appointed new Senators to replace them as is still required by the national Constitution for placement of a national Senator.

 

9th:   In 1917, Corp. U.S. enters W.W. I and passes their Trading with the Enemies Act.

 

10th:   In 1918, President Wilson is reelected by the Electoral College but their election is required to be confirmed by the constitutionally set Senate; where the new Corp. U.S. only Senators were allowed to participate in the Electoral College vote confirmation the only authority that could possibly have been used for electoral confirmation was corporate only.  Therefore, President Wilson was not confirmed into office for his second term as President of the United States of America and was only seated in the Corp. U.S. Presidential capacity. 

Therefore the original jurisdiction government's seats were vacated because the people didn't seat any original jurisdiction government officers. 

It is important to note here that President Wilson retained his capacity as Commander in Chief of the military. Many people wonder about this fact imagining that such a capacity is bound to the President of the nation; however, When John Adams was President he assigned George Washington to the capacity of Commander in Chief of the military in preparation for an impending war with France.  During this period, Mr. Adams became quite concerned because Mr. Washington became quite ill and passed on his acting military authority through his lead General Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Adams was concerned that if war did break out Mr. Hamilton would use that authority to create a military dictatorship of the nation.  Mr. Adams averted the war through diplomacy and the title of Commander in Chief was returned to him. 
(See: John Adams, by David McCullough, this book covers Mr. Adams concerns over this matter quite well.) 

 

11th:   In 1933, Corp. U.S. is bankrupt, they force a banking holiday to exchange money backed Federal Reserve Notes with “legal tender” Federal Reserve Notes the Trading with the Enemies Act is adjusted to recognize the people of the United States as enemies of Corp. U.S.

 

12th:   Some time after 1935, you ask Social Security Administration for a relationship with their program.  With the express purpose of generating Beneficiary funds to United States General Trust Fund (GTF) the Social Security Administration creates an entity with a name (that sounds like your name but is spelled with all capital letters) and an account number (Social Security number).  They give you the Social Security card and let you know that the card does not belong to you but you are to hold it for them until they want it back.  If you are willing to accept that responsibility over the card you activate the card by signing it, which gives you the ability to act as the fiduciary for the cards actual owner Corp. U.S. and you can use the card’s name and number to thus transact business relations for the card’s actual owner.  You are also to note that though the card verifies its agency (you as the single person with authority to control the entity so created) it is not for use as identification.  On review: notice the Social Security Administration was the creator of the entity, they offered you the opportunity to serve its Trustee capacity (by lending it actual consciousness and physical capacity), they gave you something (the card) that does not belong to you to hold in trust and they reserved the actual owner of the thing (Corp. U.S.) as the beneficiary of the entity—by definition, this only describes the creation and existence of a Trust.  More importantly: the name they gave this Trust is not your name, the number they gave the Trust is not your number and your lending actual consciousness and physical capacity to this Trust’s Trustee capacity does not limit you or your capacity to separately act in your natural sovereign capacity in any way—what you do, when you do it and how you do it is still totally up to you.

 

13th:   In 1944, under the Bretton Woods Agreement, Corp. U.S. is quit claimed to the International Monetary Fund, and becomes a foreign controlled private corporation.

 

14th:   In 1962, considering the states were forced to carry out their business dealings in terms of Federal Reserve Notes (foreign notes), which is forbidden in the national and State constitutions, out of the necessity the states began protecting themselves from the people by forming corporations like Corp. U.S.  Accordingly, those newly formed corporate state administrations began adopting Corp. U.S. suggested uniform codes and licensing structures that allowed better and more powerful control over the people, which thing the original jurisdiction governments of this nation had no capacity to do.  Our Constitutions secure that the governments do not govern the people rather they govern themselves in accord with the limits of Law.  The people govern themselves.  Such is the foundational nature of our Constitutional Republic.

 

15th:   By 1972, every State government in the union of States had formed such private corporations

(Corp. State), in accord with the IMF admonition, and the people ceased to seat original jurisdiction government officials in their State government seats.

 

Now, having stated these historical facts, we ask you not to believe us,

but rather prove these facts for yourself. 

 We then ask you to contact us and share your discovery with us.

When you find there is no error in this historical outline,

then remember these simple facts and let no one dissuade you from the truth.

 

The Bottom Line: when you speak about these private foreign corporations

remember that is what they are and stop calling them government.

Further, it is very important that we cease to attempt to fix them. 

 

 It is far more important that we learn how to reseat our original jurisdiction government and spread the word about the truth.  By reseating our State and national governments in their original jurisdiction nature, we gain the capacity to hold these private foreign corporations accountable.

They owe us a lot of money, in fact they owe us more money than there is available in the world.

In fact it is impossible for them to pay and that gives us the leverage we need to take back our nation and put things right.  The process is a simple one.  The difficulty is in getting our people to wake up to the truth.  That's why we ask you to prove the truth for yourself and contact us with your discovery. That means that you must stop acting and communicating like you are anything other than the sovereign that God created you to be. 

 

 And, stop referring to Corp. U.S. or the STATE OF 'X' as anything other than the private foreign corporations that they are.  And, finally, stop listening to the Bigfoot Patriot Mythology that is espoused by those that only give these facts lip service.

 

It's time to wake up and follow the truth, time to repent and become a moral and honorable society instead of lauding our Piety while we stand guilty of:
a) not knowing the truth;
b) not living the truth;
c) believing God will save us even though we have the tools to know the truth the ability to use the tools but we refuse to live by the truth and use the tools we have to save ourselves and thereby become free.

The biggest problem with that get all excited about uniting against the tyranny of Corp. U.S. is that they are blind to the truth having no remedy so they bail out of "the system" hell bent for a rebellion even the scripture says cannot be won with conventional weapons of war.  Would that we could instead follow the admonition of the King of Kings and unite with truth to legally, lawfully and peacefully reseat our original jurisdiction government thereby taking back the control our nation in accord with law.

BANKING FRAUD

The True Reason For Obamacare and ForgeryGate: Blackmailed By Putin, Obama Betrays United States And Her Allies

April 8th, 2012 by

http://www.westernjournalism.com/obamacare-was-never-about-health-what-was-it-about-then/

By  Doug Book

A week ago, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy observed that implementation of the Affordable Care Act stood to “…change the relationship of the federal government to the individual in a very fundamental way.”

Although Kennedy was probably unaware of it at the time, that “change” is precisely what the authors of ObamaCare have hoped to impose on the American public for decades. For healthcare itself was never the real purpose of the massive, complex, and overreaching law as the following information should make clear.

Charged with defending the constitutionality of the Act before the Court, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli told the Justices that some 40 million Americans were either permanently or occasionally without health insurance.

But were that number 50 million, as has been claimed by some ObamaCare advocates during the past year, these facts must be considered:

  • 8 million of that number are Medicaid recipients and therefore NOT uninsured
  • 10 million are illegal aliens
  • 11 million earn in excess of $75,000/yr and pay a substantial portion of any healthcare costs out of pocket
  • 9 million earn over $50,000/yr and also pay for much of their own healthcare

Of the 20 million higher income individuals above, many are young and CHOOSE to not have health insurance. And interestingly, in a Gallup poll, 60% of those who are uninsured and making between $30,000-$75,000 per year rate their healthcare as “good” or “excellent” in spite of having no insurance!

So rather than 50 million, it is only some 20 million American citizens who might actually be uninsured for extended periods of time. And even they can obtain healthcare at no charge from hospitals and clinics, which are compensated in part each year by federal or state government grants and must by law provide care, regardless of ability to pay.

In 2010, the “…Medicare chief actuary, [said] that Obamacare would raise nationwide health costs by over $300 billion through 2019 in relation to what those costs would be without Obamacare.”

And the Senate Budget Committee had reported the addition of another $17 trillion in unfunded mandates over the next three quarters of a century, thanks to spending obligations added by Obamacare.

Do the American people NEED a 3,000 page law and dizzying expense factors in order to provide healthcare for 20 million people? Doesn’t this extraordinary departure from common sense and fiscal responsibility make it obvious that the LAST thing the congressional Democrat supermajority of 2008 really had in mind was the effective implementation and administration of healthcare?

When Barack Hussein Obama vowed to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” black voters believed it would translate into more free goods and services; organized labor dreamed of increasing dues, membership, and power; and gullible, guilt-ridden whites envisioned the post-racial melding of happy races and forgiveness of past sins.

But the radical left, typified by the inner circle of the Manchurian Candidate, backed Obama’s duplicitous ramblings because they understood the REAL significance of his “utopian” vision of the future.  And that vision has assumed the form of law in ObamaCare as the claim of universal coverage becomes a scheme of nationwide enslavement.

Five men have the deadly serious job of making certain that it doesn’t come to pass.

 

ForgeryGate: Blackmailed By Putin,

Obama Betrays United States And Her Allies

 BY DOUG BOOK

 

While the American media provide cover for the Constitutionally ineligible Barack Hussein Obama, Vladimir Putin and the nation of Russia are reaping a treasure trove of defense secrets and missile technology by threatening to reveal the true history of the Manchurian Candidate.

Obama has spent millions to prevent his personal story from being revealed to the American public. Records have been destroyed, information has been hidden, false claims have been advanced, potential whistle-blowers have been threatened and official documents have been forged. Enabled by a complicit media and the craven cowardice of political opponents, the most egregious felonies in the nation’s history have served to make the American people easy prey for the schemes of a dedicated Communist and committed enemy of our Constitutional Republic.

And those schemes have included the betrayal both of the United States and her allies.

§                  In 2009 Obama scrapped the long awaited missile defense system for Poland and the Czech Republic because Russia objected.

§                  He has refused to keep secret the technical data on the U.S Standard Missile-3, as called for in the 2012 defense authorization bill.

§                  Obama will not pledge to keep American missile technology from China, North Korea and Iran, as it would  “…interfere with [his] constitutional authority to conduct foreign affairs…”

§                  Obama will provide Russia information on every Trident missile supplied to Great Britain as part of an arms control deal signed with Russian President Medvedev.

§                  Leaked cables show that the US will now provide Russia with ALL serial numbers of Trident missiles transferred to Britain.

§                  Obama proposes the United States CUT its nuclear arsenal by 80%, yet demands no reciprocity on the part of Russia or any of America’s enemies.

§                  Joe Miller, 2010 US Senate candidate from Alaska, reports that, under the guise of drawing a boundary, 7 Alaska-area islands and oil rich sea beds containing perhaps billions of barrels were given to Russia in an unannounced, secret deal by Obama’s State Department.

Under Obama’s programs, by 2016, defense will account for 20% of the national budget, yet bear over HALF of the deficit-reduction cuts.

In mid-March, Obama declared he would “…provide the Russians with detailed technical information about the anti- missile systems he plans to base in Eastern Europe…”

And Congressman Darrell Issa said that “the American people should be very afraid,” continuing with “I judge that in fact he is going to sell out our national defense after the election.”

On March 26th, Obama’s conversation with outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev was accidentally picked up on an open microphone.  “This is my last election…After my election I have more flexibility,” Obama told Medvedev, who said he would relay that message to the new Russian “president” Vladimir Putin. “On all of these issues, but particularly missile defense this, this can be solved but it’s important for him (Putin) to give me space.”

Why would an American President need to secretly petition a notorious KGB thug for “space?” Because Vladimir Putin is aware of Obama’s criminal abuses of the United States and the American people.  He has Obama by the throat, possessing information which can put the Manchurian Candidate in prison for a lifetime. And he is using that information to literally blackmail the American president into betraying the U.S. and her allies around the world.

And though Barack Obama has certainly needed no persuasion to betray the American people and inflict massive damage on the United States since his election, that treachery is now proceeding according to a schedule and terms dictated by Putin, making the guilt of the American President even more obvious and his chances for re-election more tenuous. Thus, the plea for space.

How much MORE damage could the treasonous Barack Obama cause with another 4 years in power? And who might blackmail him next?

TREASON

Exposing the Obama Soetoro deception

April 5th, 2012 by

 

http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/45758

By Doug Hagmann

On Saturday, March 31, 2012, a press conference was held by a commissioned law enforcement body to present additional findings from their investigation into the bona fides and background of a man currently occupying the highest elected position in America. The investigation not only includes the forensic irregularities of the birth documentation submitted by Barack Hussein Obama, but into two additional areas. The official law enforcement investigation is also encompassing problems confirmed to exist with the authenticity of his selective service registration, a matter we’ve previously reported. Additionally and perhaps more explosive, investigation has broadened into the actions of Hillary Clinton and her closest political operatives during the latter part of the 2008 presidential campaign.

Most people following this issue are aware of the irregularities surrounding Obama’s selective service registration. Yet few appear to be aware that detectives from the Arizona investigative team have been methodically securing affidavits documenting alleged criminal activity by the Obama campaign during the 2008 Democratic Party primary.

“Something” happened during the latter portion of the campaign that involved Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama. Recall that Obama and Clinton ditched the press and their respective staff members to meet in secret during the late night hours of Thursday, June 5, 2008, at the home of Senator Dianne Feinstein. The meeting lasted about an hour, and what was discussed was never publicly disclosed.

The expansion of the official investigation is being deliberately ignored by the mainstream media, including outlets often identified with the conservative agenda. Evidence suggests that this deliberate media “blackout” is being orchestrated and ordered at the highest levels of the American government.

Preliminary investigative findings

On March 1, 2012, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio held a press conference to announce their preliminary findings of a six-month long investigation into the legitimacy of Barack Hussein Obama’s long form birth certificate that was published on the White House website on April 27, 2011. At that press conference, Sheriff Arpaio stated that the official investigation, conducted by seasoned and sworn law enforcement officers, found “probable cause to believe that the [document] is a computer generated forgery.” Arpaio added: “I do not believe that it is a scan of an original 1961 paper document, as represented by the White House when the long-form birth certificate was made public.” [Emphasis added].

I’ve spoken at length with lead Detective Mike Zullo in my capacity as an investigator before and after that initial press conference. It is clear that the objective of his team of seasoned and sworn law enforcement officers is to seek and expose the truth about Obama’s background and legal qualifications for the highest office in the land, wherever it might lead. Authenticated evidence of any type, including exculpatory evidence is being sought as well.

Detective Zullo confirmed, however, that their efforts are being obstructed by government officials, and publicly marginalized by the media. Based on most recent investigative findings, government agencies have blocked legitimate subpoena efforts, or worse, might have altered or destroyed evidence with apparent impunity.

Such actions or inactions of government agencies in this regard should give pause to even the most ardent detractors of the eligibility matter if they were at all interested in the truth.

Threats to the media

We were perhaps the first to document and report the threats to the media in a columnpublished on August 4, 2009, citing evidence we obtained dating back to late 2008.Information provided here over two years ago was publicly confirmed by lead investigator Mike Zullo in a March 22, 2012 interview published this week by the Western Center for Journalism. Excerpted from that report:

The executive producers of the national show, 3 hours before air time, pulled the script, literally leaving the temporary host with no script whatsoever.

For a nationally syndicated show, this is absolutely unheard of, particularly with a fill-in doing the show. Programing [sic] is scheduled days in advance as hours of work and preparation often go into them; it is after all a business and one which must inform accurately. To have a script tossed just hours before airing is simply not done without explanation or substitution.

Lead Investigator Zullo revealed in this conversation that several individuals have come forth to provide testimony; the identity of these witnesses is being withheld for their protection. They identify producers, reporters, T.V. and radio personalities who have been told specifically by intimidating individuals who state clearly, they are not going to report on this story. These witnesses have been told: “If you breathe a word about it on air, we will make certain you never work in this business again,” said Investigator Zullo. Apparently those making the threats have the power to carry through on them.

Some of these witnesses have been told this along with a sinister inquiry into how a family member is doing over at XYZ (details have been changed to protect witness identity), or some other means of letting that person know the powers that be know exactly where their family members are…

As also confirmed by law enforcement, our investigation has found that the threats to the media have taken several forms. At the highest of corporate levels, it appears that government agencies such as the FCC, the FTC and even the IRS are being used to force parent companies into compliance with the administration’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” warnings. Complicity reigns in other cases where contributions buy exclusives, the mainstay of mainstream media. And in others, it simply comes down to something that can be termed “presstitution,” or the act of acquiescence to keep their positions and lifestyles in exchange for their silence.

Perhaps the most insidious threats of all, however, involve individuals working in the media but are not in the limelight, yet could provide information about the activities behind the scenes intrinsic to the media’s complicity. As detailed above by Detective Zullo, threats do not stop at the specter of unemployment, but extend to the well-being of their families.

Threats to Sheriff Joe Arpaio

In the midst of the investigation spearheaded by Sheriff Arpaio’s team, the Obama justice department has ratcheted up its legal campaign against the Sheriff for enforcing the law against illegal aliens within his jurisdiction. This is a shameful tactic being employed by the Holder Justice Department under orders by the Obama administration.

Out on a limb

Findings by the commissioned law enforcement body have been met with a campaign of propaganda short on facts but heavy on baseless ridicule and hollow charges of racism. Such tactics should come as no surprise.

A 2009 Christmas ornament on the White House Christmas tree featured a picture of Mao Zedong, communist leader of China in the twentieth century. The reign of Mao Zedong was facilitated by the communist government’s use of propaganda and media censorship. While the White House and their own “Ministry of Propaganda,” Media Matters, trivialized the existence of a communist in the White House, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn proudly embraced Mao as one of her favorite political philosophers in a speech she delivered the previous June.

Anyone with the most basic knowledge of history can see the tactics used to refute valid concerns about the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama are quite consistent with the tactics of Mao’s oppressive regime. It is apparent that the Mao Christmas ornament did not fall from the White House tree.

Who is really occupying the Oval Office?

The Arizona investigative team of commissioned law enforcement officers found probable cause that the most basic of all forms of identity for the man sitting in the Oval Office, the birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama II, is a computer generated forgery. Think about that for a moment. The document that has the imprimatur of the Obama White House is likely a forgery.

Furthermore, that document was posted only after Obama authorized his legal team to fight against any release of his identification papers that also include his school and passport records, among others. The fight did not come without a cost. Estimates of legal expenses to prevent disclosure of identifying documents are well into the seven figures.

Despite such effort and expense, some well-known analysts and pundits want us to believe that Obama was “playing” his enemies with a needless diversion, claiming that the eligibility issue was nothing more than a distraction from “real” issues. Many others have since folded with the release of the purported “real” birth certificate released last April, stating that the matter is closed.

To accept that the matter should be rendered moot with the release of the Obama authorized document, one must then admit that the initial document presented by Obama sanctioned myth-busting sites was not legitimate.
Others simply choose to remain silent, or believe the answer is to “vote Obama out” in November. Is that how we now address possible criminal activity at the highest levels of government? If so, I would submit that Richard Nixon is owed an apology, posthumously.

As unbelievable as it sounds, it is a fact that the actual legal identity of the individual who has occupied the office of the President of the United States for the last 3-1/2 years remains a very legitimate and valid question. It is also a fact that this individual has used Barry Soetoro as his legal name, and there has been no authenticated evidence to show that he legally changed it back to Barack Hussein Obama II at any time during his adult life.

To Russia with love?

If the issue of Obama’s legal identity seems trivial and a fringe issue in the scheme of things, consider the path this country has taken over the last three-and-a-half years. Even more frightening, consider the path not yet taken.
A window into that path was opened by a “hot” microphone that captured Obama’s utterances to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev on March 26, 2012. The world heard Obama say that he would have more flexibility in his second term to adjust our missile defense program to the better liking of the Russians.

The media turned this insight into his plans for the defense of our allies and homeland into tongue-in-cheek reports, downplaying the significance of his statements.

No one in the media or elsewhere are making any connection to a very peculiar 2005 incident involving Obama, a junior Senator and member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Richard Lugar, a Republican Senator from Illinois and chairman of that committee, and the Russian FSB.

During their travels to Russia for the purposes of nuclear disarmament talks, the delegation was detained at the Russian airport of Perm by the FSB for about three hours in August 2005. The Russian FSB confiscated Barack Hussein Obama’s passport. Initial reports indicated an irregularity with his passport, although subsequent reports downplayed the incident. What was the real reason for this very strange detention, and what does the FSB know about Obama’s passport that Americans have been prevented to see?

Over the objections of career politicians, race bating progressive attack dogs, intellectually dishonest political pundits and a compromised media, it should be very clear by now that it is in the best interest of this country for the truth to revealed about Barack Hussein Obama II, or is it Barry Soetoro?

The survival of our nation is at stake.

Israeli Connection to 911

TREASON

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I have had long conversations over the past two weeks with contacts at the Army War College, at the Headquarters Marine Corps, and I have made it absolutely clear in both cases that it is 100 percent certain that 9/11 was a Mossad operation. Period,” Alan Sabrosky, writer and consultant specializing in national and international security affairs, said in a clip appearing on the public video-sharing website You Tube.

Sabrosky said his colleagues who are still serving in uniform initially react with incredulity to his assertions but upon his explanations regarding the controlled demolition of the buildings their disbelief gives way to rage.

“First is disbelief, and what I show them immediately afterwards is an interview with a Danish demolitions expert named Danny Jowenko, and it shows the third building at the World Trade Center going down – WTC7.”

“The thing that’s necessary is to tell people: three buildings went down; the third was not hit by a plane, it was wired for controlled demolition, therefore, all of them were wired for controlled demolition. And at that point the reaction is rage. First disbelief, and then rage,” he added.

Sabrosky said if the Americans were apprised of the truth behind the attacks, they would not hesitate to eliminate Israel without any consideration for the costs involved.

“If Americans ever know that Israel did this, they are going to scrub them off the earth,” he said.

On September 11, 2001, a series of coordinated attacks were carried out in theUnited States, reportedly leaving nearly 3,000 people dead.

The US government claimed that 19 terrorists, allegedly affiliated with the shadowy,Afghanistan-based al-Qaeda group, had hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners to carry out the attacks.

The official US account of the September 11 events has, however, been widely challenged by various quarters in the US and worldwide.

The US, under the administration of former President Bush, invaded Afghanistan in 2001 after claiming that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by the members of al-Qaeda harbored by the then Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

The US also attacked Iraq in 2003, insisting that the oil-rich country was in possession of weapons of mass destruction(WMD).

In his September 22, 2011 address to the UN General Assembly, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for an independent international probe into the 9/11 incident, saying the attacks provided the US with a convenient excuse to wage wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

“The Zionists are playing this as truly an all-or-nothing exercise, because if they lose this one, if the American people ever realize what happened, they’re done,” Sabrosky concluded.

TREASON

 

 

When will Obama crack in public?

March 28th, 2012 by

 

http://mychal-massie.com/premium/

By Mychal Massie

At a time when many Americans can barely afford Burger King and a movie, Obama boasts of spending a billion dollars on his re-election campaign. Questioned at a recent appearance about the spiraling fuel costs, Obama said, "Get used to it" – and with an insouciant grin and chortle, he told another person at the event, who complained about the effect high fuel prices were having on his family, to "get a more fuel-efficient car."  [O'D NOTE: As if that person could AFFORD a hybrid car…!]

The Obamas behave as if they were sharecroppers living in a trailer and hit the Powerball, but instead of getting new tires for their trailer and a new pickup truck, they moved to Washington . And instead of making possum pie, with goats and chickens in the front yard, they're spending and living large at taxpayer expenseopulent vacations, gala balls, resplendent dinners and exclusive command performances at the White House, grand date nights, golf, basketball, more golf, exclusive resorts and still more golf. In the 1950's they called it acting NIGGER RICH.

Expensive, ill-fitting and ill-chosen wigs and fashions hardly befit the first lady of the United States . The Obamas have behaved in every way but presidentialwhich is why it's so offensive when we hear Obama say, in order "to restore fiscal responsibility, we all need to share in the sacrifice – but we don't have to sacrifice the America we believe in."

The American people have been sacrificing; it is he and his family who are behaving as if they've never had two nickels to rub together – and now, having hit the mother lode, they're going to spend away their feelings of inadequacy at the taxpayers' expense.

Obama continues to exhibit behavior that, at best, can be described as mobocratic and, at worst, reveals a deeply damaged individual. In a February 2010 column, I asked, "Is Obama unraveling? "I wrote that it was beginning to appear the growing mistrust of him and contempt for his policies was beginning to have a destabilizing effect on him.

At that time, I wrote that not having things go one's way can be a bitter pill, but reasonable people don't behave as he was behaving. He had insulted Republicans at their luncheon, where he had been an invited guest. I had speculated that was, in part, what had led him to falsely accuse Supreme Court justices before Congress, the nation and the world, during the 2010 State of the Union address.

It appeared, at that time, as if he were "fraying around the emotional edges." That behavior has not abated – it has become more pronounced. While addressing the nation, after being forced to explain the validity of his unilateral aggression with Libya , America witnessed a petulant individual scowling and scolding the public for daring to insist he explain his actions.

But during an afternoon speech to address the budget/debt, he took his scornful, unstable despotic behavior to depths that should give the nation cause for concern. Displaying a dark psychopathy more representative of an episode of "The Tudors" television series, he invited Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to sit in the front row during his speech and then proceeded to berate both Ryan and Ryan's budget-cutting plan. Even liberal Democrats were put off by the act. MSNBC's Joe Scarborough questioned the sanity of Obama's actions.

Today, criticism is coming from all sides. A senior Democrat lawmaker said, "I have been very disappointed in [Obama], to the point where I'm embarrassed that I endorsed him. It's so bad that some of us are thinking, is there some way we can replace him? How do you get rid of this guy?" ("Democrats' Disgust with Obama," The Daily Beast, April 15, 2011)

Steve McCann wrote: Obama's speech "was chock full of lies, deceit and crass fear-mongering. It must be said that [he] is the most dishonest, deceitful and mendacious person in a position of power I have ever witnessed" ("The Mendacity of Barack Obama,"AmericanThinker.com, April 15, 2011).

McCann continued: "[His] performance was the culmination of four years of outright lies and narcissism that have been largely ignored by the media, including some in the conservative press and political class who are loath to call [him] what he is in the bluntest of terms: a liar and a fraud. That he relies on his skin color to intimidate, either outright or by insinuation [against] those who oppose his radical agenda only add to his audacity. It is apparent that he has gotten away with his character flaws his entire life, aided and abetted by sycophants around him. …"

With these being among the kinder rebukes being directed at Obama, and with people becoming less intimidated by his willingness to use race as a bludgeon, with falling poll numbers in every meaningful category and an increasingly aggressive tea-party opposition – how much longer before he cracks completely?

The coming months of political life are not going to be pleasant for Obama. Possessed by a self-perceived palatine mindset, that in his mind places him above criticism, how long before he cracks in public? Can America risk a man with a documented track record of lying and misrepresenting truth as a basic way of life, who is becoming increasingly more contumelious?

Who would have ever thought that America could ever have been destroyed? Especially by a skinny half breed with no affection for our Nation, or loyalty to the people. When I think back to the time of the war in Nam, I can see the deterioration, but before that, I was blind to it. Now, I know it has been deteriorating from the get go, due to our mistaken confidence in our representatives, and our own laziness. So now, we are faced with loosing everything we have worked for all of our lives, including many friends, and loved ones, as we are being pushed into a corner that has no escape. Mark these words reader, there will be wailing and gashing of teeth shortly in America, as brother once more goes to war against brother, which is the most despicable thing that human beings can stoop too. I hope this half breed scumbag is proud of his accomplishment, and rots from the inside out. If he wins this next so called election, it will be time to lock and load again. My agony is from being too old to be a grunt again. Pray for the real patriots! Please, if you have not subscribed for daily notices of new post, do so now, and encourage your friends and family to do like wise. Every American needs to get educated on what has happened to us.

The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center (Watch What You Say)

March 18th, 2012 by

The NSAs SPY NETWORK

By James Bamford

Once it’s operational, the Utah Data Center will become, in effect, the NSA’s cloud. The center will be fed data collected by the agency’s eavesdropping satellites, overseas listening posts, and secret monitoring rooms in telecom facilities throughout the US. All that data will then be accessible to the NSA’s code breakers, data-miners, China analysts, counterterrorism specialists, and others working at its Fort Meade headquarters and around the world. Here’s how the data center appears to fit into the NSA’s global puzzle.—J.B.

 

1 Geostationary satellites

Four satellites positioned around the globe monitor frequencies carrying everything from walkie-talkies and cell phones in Libya to radar systems in North Korea. Onboard software acts as the first filter in the collection process, targeting only key regions, countries, cities, and phone numbers or email.

2 Aerospace Data Facility, Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado

Intelligence collected from the geostationary satellites, as well as signals from other spacecraft and overseas listening posts, is relayed to this facility outside Denver. About 850 NSA employees track the satellites, transmit target information, and download the intelligence haul.

3 NSA Georgia, Fort Gordon, Augusta, Georgia

Focuses on intercepts from Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. Codenamed Sweet Tea, the facility has been massively expanded and now consists of a 604,000-square-foot operations building for up to 4,000 intercept operators, analysts, and other specialists.

4 NSA Texas, Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio

Focuses on intercepts from Latin America and, since 9/11, the Middle East and Europe. Some 2,000 workers staff the operation. The NSA recently completed a $100 million renovation on a mega-data center here—a backup storage facility for the Utah Data Center.

5 NSA Hawaii, Oahu

Focuses on intercepts from Asia. Built to house an aircraft assembly plant during World War II, the 250,000-square-foot bunker is nicknamed the Hole. Like the other NSA operations centers, it has since been expanded: Its 2,700 employees now do their work aboveground from a new 234,000-square-foot facility.

6 Domestic listening posts

The NSA has long been free to eavesdrop on international satellite communications. But after 9/11, it installed taps in US telecom “switches,” gaining access to domestic traffic. An ex-NSA official says there are 10 to 20 such installations.

7 Overseas listening posts

According to a knowledgeable intelligence source, the NSA has installed taps on at least a dozen of the major overseas communications links, each capable of eavesdropping on information passing by at a high data rate.

8 Utah Data Center, Bluffdale, Utah

At a million square feet, this $2 billion digital storage facility outside Salt Lake City will be the centerpiece of the NSA’s cloud-based data strategy and essential in its plans for decrypting previously uncrackable documents.

9 Multiprogram Research Facility, Oak Ridge, Tennessee

Some 300 scientists and computer engineers with top security clearance toil away here, building the world’s fastest supercomputers and working on cryptanalytic applications and other secret projects.

10 NSA headquarters, Fort Meade, Maryland

Analysts here will access material stored at Bluffdale to prepare reports and recommendations that are sent to policymakers. To handle the increased data load, the NSA is also building an $896 million supercomputer center here.

Before yottabytes of data from the deep web and elsewhere can begin piling up inside the servers of the NSA’s new center, they must be collected. To better accomplish that, the agency has undergone the largest building boom in its history, including installing secret electronic monitoring rooms in major US telecom facilities. Controlled by the NSA, these highly secured spaces are where the agency taps into the US communications networks, a practice that came to light during the Bush years but was never acknowledged by the agency. The broad outlines of the so-called warrantless-wiretapping program have long been exposed—how the NSA secretly and illegally bypassed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which was supposed to oversee and authorize highly targeted domestic eavesdropping; how the program allowed wholesale monitoring of millions of American phone calls and email. In the wake of the program’s exposure, Congress passed the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, which largely made the practices legal. Telecoms that had agreed to participate in the illegal activity were granted immunity from prosecution and lawsuits. What wasn’t revealed until now, however, was the enormity of this ongoing domestic spying program.

For the first time, a former NSA official has gone on the record to describe the program, codenamed Stellar Wind, in detail. William Binney was a senior NSA crypto-mathematician largely responsible for automating the agency’s worldwide eavesdropping network. A tall man with strands of black hair across the front of his scalp and dark, determined eyes behind thick-rimmed glasses, the 68-year-old spent nearly four decades breaking codes and finding new ways to channel billions of private phone calls and email messages from around the world into the NSA’s bulging databases. As chief and one of the two cofounders of the agency’s Signals Intelligence Automation Research Center, Binney and his team designed much of the infrastructure that’s still likely used to intercept international and foreign communications.

He explains that the agency could have installed its tapping gear at the nation’s cable landing stations—the more than two dozen sites on the periphery of the US where fiber-optic cables come ashore. If it had taken that route, the NSA would have been able to limit its eavesdropping to just international communications, which at the time was all that was allowed under US law. Instead it chose to put the wiretapping rooms at key junction points throughout the country—large, windowless buildings known as switches—thus gaining access to not just international communications but also to most of the domestic traffic flowing through the US. The network of intercept stations goes far beyond the single room in an AT&T building in San Francisco exposed by a whistle-blower in 2006. “I think there’s 10 to 20 of them,” Binney says. “That’s not just San Francisco; they have them in the middle of the country and also on the East Coast.”

The eavesdropping on Americans doesn’t stop at the telecom switches. To capture satellite communications in and out of the US, the agency also monitors AT&T’s powerful earth stations, satellite receivers in locations that include Roaring Creek and Salt Creek. Tucked away on a back road in rural Catawissa, Pennsylvania, Roaring Creek’s three 105-foot dishes handle much of the country’s communications to and from Europe and the Middle East. And on an isolated stretch of land in remote Arbuckle, California, three similar dishes at the company’s Salt Creek station service the Pacific Rim and Asia.

The former NSA official held his thumb and forefinger close together: “We are that far from a turnkey totalitarian state.”

Binney left the NSA in late 2001, shortly after the agency launched its warrantless-wiretapping program. “They violated the Constitution setting it up,” he says bluntly. “But they didn’t care. They were going to do it anyway, and they were going to crucify anyone who stood in the way. When they started violating the Constitution, I couldn’t stay.” Binney says Stellar Wind was far larger than has been publicly disclosed and included not just eavesdropping on domestic phone calls but the inspection of domestic email. At the outset the program recorded 320 million calls a day, he says, which represented about 73 to 80 percent of the total volume of the agency’s worldwide intercepts. The haul only grew from there. According to Binney—who has maintained close contact with agency employees until a few years ago—the taps in the secret rooms dotting the country are actually powered by highly sophisticated software programs that conduct “deep packet inspection,” examining Internet traffic as it passes through the 10-gigabit-per-second cables at the speed of light.

The software, created by a company called Narus that’s now part of Boeing, is controlled remotely from NSA headquarters at Fort Meade in Maryland and searches US sources for target addresses, locations, countries, and phone numbers, as well as watch-listed names, keywords, and phrases in email. Any communication that arouses suspicion, especially those to or from the million or so people on agency watch lists, are automatically copied or recorded and then transmitted to the NSA.

The scope of surveillance expands from there, Binney says. Once a name is entered into the Narus database, all phone calls and other communications to and from that person are automatically routed to the NSA’s recorders. “Anybody you want, route to a recorder,” Binney says. “If your number’s in there? Routed and gets recorded.” He adds, “The Narus device allows you to take it all.” And when Bluffdale is completed, whatever is collected will be routed there for storage and analysis.

According to Binney, one of the deepest secrets of the Stellar Wind program—again, never confirmed until now—was that the NSA gained warrantless access to AT&T’s vast trove of domestic and international billing records, detailed information about who called whom in the US and around the world. As of 2007, AT&T had more than 2.8 trillion records housed in a database at its Florham Park, New Jersey, complex.

Verizon was also part of the program, Binney says, and that greatly expanded the volume of calls subject to the agency’s domestic eavesdropping. “That multiplies the call rate by at least a factor of five,” he says. “So you’re over a billion and a half calls a day.” (Spokespeople for Verizon and AT&T said their companies would not comment on matters of national security.)

The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center (Watch What You Say)

After he left the NSA, Binney suggested a system for monitoring people’s communications according to how closely they are connected to an initial target. The further away from the target—say you’re just an acquaintance of a friend of the target—the less the surveillance. But the agency rejected the idea, and, given the massive new storage facility in Utah, Binney suspects that it now simply collects everything. “The whole idea was, how do you manage 20 terabytes of intercept a minute?” he says. “The way we proposed was to distinguish between things you want and things you don’t want.” Instead, he adds, “they’re storing everything they gather.” And the agency is gathering as much as it can.

Once the communications are intercepted and stored, the data-mining begins. “You can watch everybody all the time with data- mining,” Binney says. Everything a person does becomes charted on a graph, “financial transactions or travel or anything,” he says. Thus, as data like bookstore receipts, bank statements, and commuter toll records flow in, the NSA is able to paint a more and more detailed picture of someone’s life.

The NSA also has the ability to eavesdrop on phone calls directly and in real time. According to Adrienne J. Kinne, who worked both before and after 9/11 as a voice interceptor at the NSA facility in Georgia, in the wake of the World Trade Center attacks “basically all rules were thrown out the window, and they would use any excuse to justify a waiver to spy on Americans.” Even journalists calling home from overseas were included. “A lot of time you could tell they were calling their families,” she says, “incredibly intimate, personal conversations.” Kinne found the act of eavesdropping on innocent fellow citizens personally distressing. “It’s almost like going through and finding somebody’s diary,” she says.

In secret listening rooms nationwide, NSA software examines every email, phone call, and tweet as they zip by.

But there is, of course, reason for anyone to be distressed about the practice. Once the door is open for the government to spy on US citizens, there are often great temptations to abuse that power for political purposes, as when Richard Nixon eavesdropped on his political enemies during Watergate and ordered the NSA to spy on antiwar protesters. Those and other abuses prompted Congress to enact prohibitions in the mid-1970s against domestic spying.

Before he gave up and left the NSA, Binney tried to persuade officials to create a more targeted system that could be authorized by a court. At the time, the agency had 72 hours to obtain a legal warrant, and Binney devised a method to computerize the system. “I had proposed that we automate the process of requesting a warrant and automate approval so we could manage a couple of million intercepts a day, rather than subvert the whole process.” But such a system would have required close coordination with the courts, and NSA officials weren’t interested in that, Binney says. Instead they continued to haul in data on a grand scale. Asked how many communications—”transactions,” in NSA’s lingo—the agency has intercepted since 9/11, Binney estimates the number at “between 15 and 20 trillion, the aggregate over 11 years.”

When Barack Obama took office, Binney hoped the new administration might be open to reforming the program to address his constitutional concerns. He and another former senior NSA analyst, J. Kirk Wiebe, tried to bring the idea of an automated warrant-approval system to the attention of the Department of Justice’s inspector general. They were given the brush-off. “They said, oh, OK, we can’t comment,” Binney says.

Sitting in a restaurant not far from NSA headquarters, the place where he spent nearly 40 years of his life, Binney held his thumb and forefinger close together. “We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state,” he says.

There is still one technology preventing untrammeled government access to private digital data: strong encryption. Anyone—from terrorists and weapons dealers to corporations, financial institutions, and ordinary email senders—can use it to seal their messages, plans, photos, and documents in hardened data shells. For years, one of the hardest shells has been the Advanced Encryption Standard, one of several algorithms used by much of the world to encrypt data. Available in three different strengths—128 bits, 192 bits, and 256 bits—it’s incorporated in most commercial email programs and web browsers and is considered so strong that the NSA has even approved its use for top-secret US government communications. Most experts say that a so-called brute-force computer attack on the algorithm—trying one combination after another to unlock the encryption—would likely take longer than the age of the universe. For a 128-bit cipher, the number of trial-and-error attempts would be 340 undecillion (1036).

Breaking into those complex mathematical shells like the AES is one of the key reasons for the construction going on in Bluffdale. That kind of cryptanalysis requires two major ingredients: super-fast computers to conduct brute-force attacks on encrypted messages and a massive number of those messages for the computers to analyze. The more messages from a given target, the more likely it is for the computers to detect telltale patterns, and Bluffdale will be able to hold a great many messages. “We questioned it one time,” says another source, a senior intelligence manager who was also involved with the planning. “Why were we building this NSA facility? And, boy, they rolled out all the old guys—the crypto guys.” According to the official, these experts told then-director of national intelligence Dennis Blair, “You’ve got to build this thing because we just don’t have the capability of doing the code-breaking.” It was a candid admission. In the long war between the code breakers and the code makers—the tens of thousands of cryptographers in the worldwide computer security industry—the code breakers were admitting defeat.

So the agency had one major ingredient—a massive data storage facility—under way. Meanwhile, across the country in Tennessee, the government was working in utmost secrecy on the other vital element: the most powerful computer the world has ever known.

The plan was launched in 2004 as a modern-day Manhattan Project. Dubbed the High Productivity Computing Systems program, its goal was to advance computer speed a thousandfold, creating a machine that could execute a quadrillion (1015) operations a second, known as a petaflop—the computer equivalent of breaking the land speed record. And as with the Manhattan Project, the venue chosen for the supercomputing program was the town of Oak Ridge in eastern Tennessee, a rural area where sharp ridges give way to low, scattered hills, and the southwestward-flowing Clinch River bends sharply to the southeast. About 25 miles from Knoxville, it is the “secret city” where uranium- 235 was extracted for the first atomic bomb. A sign near the exit read: what you see here, what you do here, what you hear here, when you leave here, let it stay here. Today, not far from where that sign stood, Oak Ridge is home to the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and it’s engaged in a new secret war. But this time, instead of a bomb of almost unimaginable power, the weapon is a computer of almost unimaginable speed.

In 2004, as part of the supercomputing program, the Department of Energy established its Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility for multiple agencies to join forces on the project. But in reality there would be two tracks, one unclassified, in which all of the scientific work would be public, and another top-secret, in which the NSA could pursue its own computer covertly. “For our purposes, they had to create a separate facility,” says a former senior NSA computer expert who worked on the project and is still associated with the agency. (He is one of three sources who described the program.) It was an expensive undertaking, but one the NSA was desperate to launch.

Known as the Multiprogram Research Facility, or Building 5300, the $41 million, five-story, 214,000-square-foot structure was built on a plot of land on the lab’s East Campus and completed in 2006. Behind the brick walls and green-tinted windows, 318 scientists, computer engineers, and other staff work in secret on the cryptanalytic applications of high-speed computing and other classified projects. The supercomputer center was named in honor of George R. Cotter, the NSA’s now-retired chief scientist and head of its information technology program. Not that you’d know it. “There’s no sign on the door,” says the ex-NSA computer expert.

 

 

 

Despite Mitt Romney wins, both sides keep eying Jeb Bush

No matter what you think, or what anyone say's, this man will bring all of the power of the BUSH Cartel right back to finish destroying the United States of America. If he manages to weasel his way to the nomination, pack up and get the hell out of America, because if he manages that, the dumb asses among us will be just as thrilled as the obama groupies were. The Bush family is the scum of the earth, with billions of our money in off-shore accounts, property in countries with no extradition, and the backing of the International Banking Cartel. WTF!

Mitt Romney’s tortured triumph in Michigan put him back in the GOP driver’s seat — but that hasn’t quelled the desire among some Republicans to trade up.

Yes, Republicans are still pining for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush despite his repeated and vehement refusal to be sucked into the 2012 Republican vortex.

And Democrats continue to cast a wary eye on a guy they see as more dangerous — and capable of connecting with middle-class and Latino voters — than Romney.

The Bush murmurs persist, even as a resilient Romney marches toward Super Tuesday with a commanding lead in cash, delegates and momentum over a sagging Rick Santorum.

“I have the perfect candidate — Jeb Bush. But he’s not running,” former George W. Bush chief of staff Andy Card told Charlie Rose on CBS on Wednesday, echoing the sentiments of many in his party.

“What Democrat would not worry about a popular leader from a critical state who sounds pretty moderate and can rescue the GOP from its anti-Latino death grip?” asked former Bill Clinton press secretary Mike McCurry, who said he’s yet to find a Democratic elder who thinks the GOP is truly “unhinged” enough to consider ditching Romney for Bush.

Bush — who has refused to endorse Romney in 2012 as he did in 2008 and whose son endorsed Jon Huntsman — has fanned the flames himself, possibly to whet his party’s appetite for a 2016 run. After keeping a low profile during the hotly contested Florida primary in January, he popped up last week at the height of the Romney-Santorum duel in Michigan to declare his problems with the GOP presidential field.

“I used to be a conservative and I watch these debates and I’m wondering, I don’t think I’ve changed but it’s a little troubling sometimes when people are appealing to people’s fears and emotion rather than trying to get them to look over the horizon for a broader perspective,” Bush told a gathering in Dallas last Thursday, according to FOX News.

“I think that changes when we get to the general election — I hope,” added Bush, who has personally urged Romney to moderate his rhetoric on illegal immigration for fear of completely alienating Hispanic voters in states like Florida, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

That got the attention of conservatives including Ann Coulter, who slammed him of prepping for a campaign, and Obama campaign officials who found his timing curious.

Ana Navarro, a Republican strategist and a friend of Bush, said she saw the former governor last Sunday and he laughed off any idea that he’ll jump in the game.

But even Navarro couldn’t resist indulging in a little starry-eyed speculation of what might have been.

“Why is he a fearful figure? You know, anybody who knows Jeb Bush and who’s heard Jeb Bush understands there’s a certain inspirational quality to him,” she said in an interview.

 “He is smart, he is scary smart, and he has got a national network of supporters that he could turn on with the flip of a switch. And nobody could hold Obama’s feet to the fire in the Latino community like Jeb Bush.”

That opinion has considerable bipartisan support. “Don’t buy the bulls—- about us not being worried about Jeb,” added a veteran Democratic operative. “He’s a tough matchup even if his last name is Bush.”

Bush has said repeatedly that he isn’t running and the people around him say he couldn’t pull it off at this late date even if he wanted to. (“If Jeb had any intention of competing for the Republican nomination, he would have been at it from day one,” Navarro said. “Jeb does not play games.”)

Karl Rove, another Bush fan, recently wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed declaring the possibility of a brokered convention — a scenario that could theoretically result in a Bush candidacy — comparable to finding life on Pluto, although he didn’t rule out a contested convention where delegates shift their votes.

But Bush has said no to anyone who asked whether he’s interested, including his son George P. Bush.

Operatives in both parties say he’d be crazy to jump in now instead of waiting four years, when his Democratic opponent won’t have the benefits of incumbency.

But if 2012 has proven anything, it’s that logic isn’t always the most important thing. Republican operatives, speaking to POLITICO on condition of anonymity, talk about Bush in the glowing tones of a potential spouse who got away — and seems perfect in comparison to the person they stare at across their coffee every morning.

Likewise, Democrats have been gaming out the possibility of an Obama-Bush face-off, just as they have with other no-thanks Republicans, including Chris Christie and Mitch Daniels.

One third-party Democratic group was so concerned about Bush that it recently paid for a poll to gauge his performance in a head-to-head matchup against Obama, according to a Democrat briefed on the poll.

The survey revealed nothing that public polling hasn’t already covered — that Obama enjoys a substantial lead and that the Bush surname is still toxic.

That it was undertaken at all shows the extent of the concern over a possible Bush candidacy and, more important, a lingering uncertainty — even a touch of anxiety — in Democratic circles about Romney’s ability to make it over the finish line.

The Obama campaign loves watching Mitt Romney squirm in the spotlight — but they don’t want to see him so irretrievably damaged that it draws better candidates into the fray.

And while many inside the Obama campaign are itching to see the race resolved — so they can target Romney exclusively and hone their fighting skills — the prevailing sentiment is that the GOP infighting is a gift from the political gods.

 “On some level, I’d love to get this thing going,” said a senior party official, quickly adding, “I know that sounds crazy, but it would be nice to lock Romney in.”

Obama’s brain trust was rooting for a Santorum victory in Michigan and were disappointed that efforts by unions and local Democrats to coax party members into cross-registering to vote for Santorum fell short.

But they were pleased with the way the Michigan primary went down — Romney’s two-Cadillacs-and-just-right-trees speech to an empty football stadium, the embrace of the polarizing immigration crusader Gov. Jan Brewer in Arizona, the $4.2 million burn to win his home state.

And they have watched gleefully as Obama’s approval rating in the state has ballooned to 16 points in the latest Public Policy Polling survey — in part because of Romney’s opposition to the auto bailout.

“In 2008, the protracted primary allowed us to build our organization across the country and lay out an affirmative vision,” said Obama 2012 communications director Ben LaBolt.

“That’s not what the Republicans have done — they haven’t invested in organization and they’re leapfrogging to the right of each other on issues from Medicare to immigration,” he added. “Their primary has been an echo chamber where they have debated who is the most committed to tea party orthodoxy rather than laying out a plan to create jobs and restore economic security for the middle class, the issues most Americans are focused on.”

Romney, for his part, cast Tuesday’s 3-point win in Michigan as a narrow but important benchmark, another brick in the road to inevitability.

Despite a recent spate of good polls and encouraging economic data, Obama remains vulnerable, especially if Republicans get past their intraparty food fight to focus on the president’s inability to bring unemployment below 8 percent and a widely held belief that he pushed through health reform in lieu of working on the economy.

But Democrats, including those who sense Obama’s weakness, watched Romney’s speech Tuesday night with a sense of relief that Bush wasn’t the man at the podium.

“I think anybody who’s legitimate would make it a race with Obama at this point,” said a former adviser to Hillary Clinton in 2008. “If they did get someone who was reasonably grown-up now and — poof — we got a race. … And Jeb’s not just anybody, he’s got damned good skills, he can raise money and even people who hated his brother concede he’s the smartest Bush.”

American Education And The Crumbling Of American Freedom

EDUCATION

 

 

Author Unknown

But well informed!

 

I am writing this with a profound sense of urgency. I am an American who has expanded my education through hard work.  Nothing has ever been given to me on a silver platter.

I am just an average citizen with something to say. I read a lot about American politics and our corrupt government (on both sides of the isle), American history, our economy and world events.

One truth stands out – America is in deep kimchi. To bury one’s head in the sand or look the other way while our nation is on fire and do nothing is unconscionable.  If we intend to stand by and be an observer and not a participator in our constitutional process we will have no one to blame but ourselves.

There have been many warning signs of what has taken place over the last few years and it’s not a pretty picture. Many people tend to ignore what is going on in our government.

Take a look back. In the 1930’s and through the second World War people ignored what was taking place around them, (its called complacency) and they allowed one of the most tyrannical governments on earth, lead by a great orator, to take over their country. We all know the end result but in saying that I’m quite sure there are a lot of young people today that do not have a clue what I am talking about.

There are a lot of truths about American History that are no longer taught in our nation’s Public Schools and Universities. This is a crying shame.

As the old saying goes “freedom is not free”and knowing this, there is a simple truth, “seek and you shall find”. With the advent of the internet, information is much easier to find. It’s all there so be informed and make competent decisions not based on the color of a person’s skin.

In 1776, fifty-six men, who were the leaders of the thirteen American colonies, signed their names below the last sentence of the Declaration of Independence, which reads-

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor”. 

I, for one, would be most surprised to find this same quality of Politicians in our elected Government today. A trusted body of  representatives that would make the same kind of pledge.

From their courageous decisions, the greatest nation in the history of the World was born.

The vision of the Founders is the bedrock of our nation and the hope of all peoples of all nations who yearn to live in freedom – in our Declaration of Independence, they penned these famous worlds:

 “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”.

At the time of its signing, there were about three million people in the thirteen American colonies. Today, according to Wikipedia, there are 25 full democracies and 53 flawed democracies around the World.

Throughout our nation’s capitol the spirit and words of our Christian heritage from our Founders are displayed in public to remind all peoples of America’s promises.

The scriptures proclaiming liberty are inscribed on our Liberty Bell; there are the Ten Commandments inscribed on the walls of the Supreme Court; More Scriptures carved into the tribute blocks at the Washington Monument. Engraved in metal at the top of the Washington Monument are the words “Praise be to God” and there is “In God We Trust” engraved on several Government buildings and on our currency. Many people do not realize that our Congress still opens every session with prayer just as the Founding Fathers wanted.

Despite all this,  evil men and women have taken State sponsored prayer and The Ten Commandments out of our public schools and it seems that every time God is mentioned in schools, there is a challenge by the ACLU.

Could it be that these rights are being taken away because the Commandments of God are no longer written “in the hearts” of many of the American People?

There are many “Quotes from our Founding Fathers and others” that should remind us of our Christian heritage. Quotes from past Presidents and modern day Statesman, like former Ambassador Alan Keyes, and many others are not hard to find with the advent of the internet.

These are quotes that you will not hear or learn about in today’s modern history textbooks in our public schools.

I believe the reason many Americans are not “raising Cain” over Obama’s unconstitutional programs and far – left agendas, is mainly due to the fact that most modern day Americans know little about their own country or Government. They are being brainwashed and lead around by their noses by Government Entitlements and the Main Stream Media propping up and capitulating with our current “Far Left Administration”.

This politically correct crap in our country has got to go and the sooner the better.

For the last 50 years or so our public school students (today’s adults and Leaders) have not been taught anything but a bunch of secular and socialist lies in the textbooks they studied from.

Our entire American history has been rewritten and anything true and /or pro-American has been deleted. They (the future leaders) are taught, little, if anything about our Constitution or our “Republican form of Government”. Instead they are being taught that we are a democracy in which when studied, our Founding Fathers despised.

What would our Founding Fathers think of America today? They must be rolling over in their graves to see where our politicians have taken our nation to date.

Our Founders had an opportunity to establish a democracy in America and wisely chose not to. In fact, the Founders made quite clear that we are not, and were never, to become a democracy. 

A few quotes to think about:

1. Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.

-James Madison, Federalist Papers

2. Remember, democracy never last long. It’s soon wastes, exhausts, and murders it. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.

-James Madison

3. A democracy is a volcano which conceals the fiery materials of its own destruction. These will produce an eruption and carry desolation in their way.

-John Adams

4. The known propensity of a democracy is to licentiousness [excessive license] which the ambitious call, and ignorant believe to be liberty.

Fisher Ames – Works of Fisher Ames Boston: T.B.Wait & Co., 1809), p24, Speech on biennial Elections, delivered January, 1788.

 5. We have seen the tumult of democracy terminate… as [it has] everywhere terminated, in despotism…democracy! savage and wild. Thou who wouldst bring down the virtuous and wise to thy level of folly and guilt.

-Fisher Ames – Author of the house language for the First Amendment

6.  the experience of all former ages had shown that of a human government, democracy was the most unstable, fluctuating and short-lived.

Governor Morris – Signer and Penman of the Constitution

7. A simple democracy is one of the greatest of evils.

-John Quincy Adams

8.  In democracy … there are commonly tumults and disorders … Therefore a pure democracy is generally a very bad government. It is often the most tyrannical Government on earth.

Benjamin Rush – Signer of the declaration

9.  Pure democracy cannot subsist nor be carried far into the departments of state; it is very subject to caprice and the madness for popular rage.

-Noah Webster

10.  It may generally be remarked that the more a government resembles a pure democracy the more they abound with disorder and confusion.

John Witherspoon – Signer of the Declaration

11.  Many Americans seem to be  unable to define the difference between the two, but there is a difference. That difference rests in the source of authority.

Zephaniah Swift – Author of America’s First Legal Text, speaking about democracies and republics

 

Our founders understood that a “pure” democracy which they are pushing for in America today, always (a) self destructs as America is doing, or (b) turn into a government of socialist tyranny as Obama and his henchmen are pushing for.

Our public school students are also being taught that our nation was founded on “secular humanist (atheistic)” beliefs. This in itself is the biggest lie being shoved down our children’s throats.

Not all, but the majority of our Founders were devout Christians. 22 of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence had graduated from a Christian seminary and 9 were ordained Christian ministers or elders.

Now keep in mind that until the 1920’s, the bible and its teaching was the primary textbook in our public schools. I guess the very men who gave us our Christian based government did not understand “separation of church and state”. Even though there were a huge debate concerning the decision to sever our ties with England, amazingly the preamble itself was never debated.

This preamble giving God the glory as Creator and our insatiable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (private property) was written by Thomas Jefferson of whom today’s textbooks portrays as a Deist.

Will we be able to recognize how miserably short we have fallen from the ideals of our Founders and the Christian principles that we once held so dear?  Will the need of realization drive us to our knees in the hope that God will spare our nation?

I say in order to bring America back to our once great and free nation we once had, we must first take our educational system back from the very people and government organizations who are doing everything in their power to bring us down, bringing us into their Socialist dream of a global government and to destroy our Founders declaration of success for America.

I will save for another writing the unconstitutional deliberate dismantling and destruction of our First and Second Amendment rights by our current Administration with some capitulation from Congress for another time.

My final summation is “We The People”. It’s up to us, not the government, to turn things around. Its time we take a stand and this time we make a difference come November 2012 and Vote to save our Constitutional Republic from the abyss.

THE BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF AMERICA

Martin Niemoller: "Our concern here, Herr Hitler, is not for the church. Jesus Christ will take care of the church. Our concern is for the soul of the nation."

Adolph Hitler: "You can leave the soul of Germany to me."

Words have meaning. My perspective on life was altered when I came to that realization. We live in a nation where we believe every “expert.” We have been trained to listen, but not to think.

We share a common language, but we do not realize that words mean different things to different people. For a greater perspective, read my commentary Change the Words, Change the World.

I used to think that the term “pro-life” meant that a person was against abortion. Sorry Charlie.Most “pro-lifers” are pro-choice…they just think that “life” is the “correct” choice. They do not hate abortion and do not fight to outlaw it.

That’s why so many politicians claim to be “Pro-Life,” yet abortion remains legal. Republicans tend to be “Pro-Life,” but they don’t really want to stop the butchering of babies.

But we think they do. We think “Pro-Life” means “stop abortion.” It doesn’t.

“Conservative” is another one of those words. Most of us here in fly-over country assume that “conservative” is a belief system. In reality, it is just a “position” that political candidates claim to hold. “Pro-Life” is one of those “conservative” positions.

That’s why they break “conservatives” into classes; “social” conservatives, “fiscal” conservatives, “judicial” conservatives, “neo” conservatives, and ironically, “Christian” conservatives.

You would think that most Christians would be “conservatives,” but of course, you would be mistaken. There are “liberal” Christians, “social-justice” Christians, “fundamentalist” Christians, “moderate” Christians, and my favorite, “Bible-believing” Christians. You see, not even “Christianity” is a one-size-fits-all description. Just like “conservative.” Just like Republican.

While most “conservatives” are Republicans, not all Republicans are “conservative.” They are not the same. I explain it here. I’m not even sure what “Christian” or “conservative” means anymore.

Let me get to the point. The “non-conservative” Republicans control the Republican Party.

Wake up folks. Our ignorance is destroying us. The Republicans and the Democrats are merely two wings of the same vulture. They represent the “Political-Class;” those who make their living off of bigger government. Their currency is PMS…Power…Money…Sex.

They are one party masquerading as two; The Democrat Political-Class and The Republican Political-Class. They fight over which side gets control of the money, not over issues.

The Republican Political-Class is fighting like mad to see Romney get the nomination because he is “more electable.” “More Electable” means Romney won’t “rock the boat” and the Republican Political-Class gets their turn to play quarterback. Either way, the “Political-Class” calls all of the plays.

Romney has run for President for five years, yet he still can’t get more than 30% of the Republican vote. Most of his 30% are the Political-Class Republicans. Heck, he could get that much if he challenged Obama in the Democratic Political-Class Primary.

Gallup reports that 42% of voters identify as conservative, 35% as moderate, and only 20% liberals. The “conservatives” only need 9% of the “moderate” vote to win. Yet the Republican Political-Class is pushing a “moderate” as their candidate. Meanwhile, the “liberals” are destroying this country.

The big myth is that Republicans represent “conservatives” when they don’t. It is the “moderate” Republicans who split the “conservative” vote by nominating RINOS. Some “moderate” Republicans voted for Obama. Some “conservative” Democrats didn’t. Lindsey Graham is a member of the Republican Political-Class, as are Susan Collins, Karl Rove, Olympia Snowe, and John McCain. Do they represent you?

Let’s face it. Both major political parties are for bigger government. A vote for either party is a vote for more government courtesy of the “Political-Class.” Their plan is to nominate a “moderate” to oppose a “leftist”, and leave “conservatives”, the majority, with no place to go.

THE TEA PARTY IS THE CONSERVATIVE BASE. Have you noticed how both sides of the “Political-Class” hate the “tea-baggers?” The Tea Party IS the opposition party to the “Political-Class.” The Tea Party must seize control of the Republican Party. It is the only chance to return power to the people.

I love to hear the media prattle on about the dangers of a “third party.” I would love to see a SECOND party; One that actually brings change. In my lifetime the Republican Party has nominated Eisenhower, Nixon, Goldwater, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush I, Dole, Bush II, and McCain. The Political-Class has continued to grow and national morality has continued its rapid plunge into the toilet as the Republicans moved farther and farther left.

Today, there is no “conservative” party.

Rick Santorum has raised a fire-storm because he is speaking about the “social” values. Right on cue, both wings of the Political-Class begin to yap about how “social” values cannot win in the general election. Folks, “conservative social” values still win the day. That is why the pigs are squealing so loudly. Even the Paul-bots don’t like the “social” issues. Many of them want freedom without responsibility.

If lying, stealing, and fornicating once again became taboo in America; if we once again began to demand those values of our children and our leaders, The Political-Class would no longer have a platform upon which to stand.

Santorum has seen a meteoric rise. He is speaking the language that a majority of Americans understand. He has said such things as “Satan has his sights on the United States of America…attacking the great institutions of America, using those great vices of pride, vanity and sensuality as the root to attack all of the strong plants that has so deeply rooted in the American tradition.” He called Satan, “The Father of Lies.” JN 8:44

When it comes to social values he doesn’t need a teleprompter. He knows that song by heart. He understands that the heart of the problem is that America has a problem of the heart. Our government is a reflection of our people. We must return to Truth.

The “Political-Class” has taken America hard left. A “moderate” correction will not bring us back to the middle. Only a hard-right can keep the one-winged eagle from a death spiral.

“Conservatives” hold deep-seated beliefs. “Republicans” hold political positions. They are not the same. If a “moderate” faces a “leftist” in 2012, “conservatives” cannot win. Ignorance is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

I support most of what Ron Paul stands for, but he fails to understand the importance of “social issues.” He calls them a “losing position.”

 

Isn’t fiat currency a social issue? What about the crap your kids are learning in government schools? Isn’t government theft a social issue? Abortion, marriage, war…aren’t they “social” issues?” Do you mean socialism is not a “social issue?”

Don’t let them blow smoke at you. It is not about contraception or women’s rights. It is about right and wrong. Right and wrong is not a state’s-rights issue. Right and wrong is a human rights issue.

It is time we drew a line and had a fight over the moral issues. Christians have given ground for far too long. It is time we had the debate. It is time to rise up against the cultural, moral rot.

The battle over right and wrong is THE political issue of our time. If this election is lost I don’t want it to be over tax cuts. The battle lines are drawn. Let’s get it on. Let’s force the “moderates” to go third-party.

“But the media tells us that a conservative will lose!!”

Wake-up, Pal. We are already losing. Stupid is as stupid does.

The Global Crises of Capitalism: Whose Crises, Who Profits?

February 23rd, 2012 by

 

 

www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=29388

 

By Prof. James Petras

 

Introduction

 

From the Financial Times to the far left, tons of ink has been spilt writing about some variant of the “Crises of Global Capitalism”. While writers differ in the causes, consequences and cures, according to their ideological lights, there is a common agreement that “the crises” threatens to end the capitalist system as we know it.

There is no doubt that, between  2008-2009, the capitalist system in Europe and the United States suffered a severe shock that shook the foundations of its financial system and threatened to bankrupt its ‘leading sectors’.

However, I will argue the ‘crises of capitalism’ was turned into a ‘crises of labor’. Finance capital, the principle detonator of the crash and crises, recovered, the capitalist class as a whole was strengthened, and most important of all, it utilized the political, social, ideological conditions created as a result of “the crises” to further consolidate their dominance and exploitation over the rest of society.

In other words, the ‘crises of capital’ has been converted into a strategic advantage for furthering the most fundamental interests of capital: the enlargement of profits, the consolidation of capitalist rule, the greater concentration of ownership, the deepening of inequalities between capital and labor and the creation of huge reserves of labor to further augment their profits.

Furthermore, the notion of a homogeneous global crisis of capitalism overlooks profound differences in performance and conditions, between countries, classes, and age cohorts.

The Global Crises Thesis: The Economic and Social Argument

The advocates of global crises argue that beginning in 2007 and continuing to the present, the world capitalist system has collapsed and recovery is a mirage. They cite stagnation and continuing recession in North America and the Eurozone. They offer GDP data hovering between negative to zero growth. Their argument is backed by data citing double digit unemployment in both regions. They frequently correct the official data which understates the percentage unemployed by excluding part-time, long-term unemployed workers and others. The ‘crises’ argument is strengthened by citing the millions of homeowners who have been evicted by the banks, the sharp increase in poverty and destitution accompanying job loses, wage reductions and the elimination or reduction of social services. “”Crises” is also associated with the massive increase in bankruptcies of mostly small and medium size businesses and regional banks.

 

The Global Crises: The Loss of Legitimacy

 

Critics, especially in the financial press, write of a “legitimacy crises of capitalism” citing polls showing substantial majorities questioning the in justice s of the capitalist system, the vast and growing inequalities and the rigged rules by which banks exploit their size (“too big to fail”) to raid the Treasury at the expense of social programs.

In summary the advocates of the thesis of a “Global Crises of Capitalism” make a strong case, demonstrating the profound and pervasive destructive effects of the capitalist system on the lives of the great majority of humanity.

The problem is that a ‘crises of humanity’ (more specifically of salary ad wage workers) is not the same as a crisis of the capitalist system. In fact as we shall argue below growing social adversity, declining income and employment has been a major factor facilitating the rapid and massive recovery of the profit margins of most large scale corporations.

Moreover, the thesis of a global crises of capitalism amalgamates disparate economies, countries, classes and age cohorts with sharply divergent performances at different historical moments.

 

Global Crises or Uneven and Unequal Development?

 

It is utterly foolish to argue for a “global crises” when several of the major economies in the world economy did not suffer a major downturn and others recovered and expanded rapidly. China and India did not suffer even a recession. Even during the worst years of the Euro-US decline, the Asian giants grew on average about 8%. Latin America’s economies especially the major agro-mineral export countries (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, ) with diversified markets, especially in Asia, paused briefly (in 2009) before assuming moderate to rapid growth (between 3% to 7%) from 2010-2012.

By aggregating economic data from the Euro-zone as a whole the advocates of global crises, overlooked the enormous disparities in performance within the zone. While Southern Europe wallows in a deep sustained depression, by any measure, from 2008 to the foreseeable future, German exports, in 2011, set a record of a trillion euros; its trade surplus reached 158 billion euros, after a155 billion euro surpluses in 2010. (BBC News, Feb. 8 2012).

While aggregate Eurozone unemployment reaches 10.4%, the internal differences defy any notion of a “general crises”. Unemployment in Holland is 4.9%, Austria 4.1% and Germany 5.5% with employer claims of widespread skilled labor shortages in key growth sectors. On the other hand in exploited southern Europe unemployment runs to depression levels, Greece 21%, Spain 22.9%, Ireland 14.5%, and Portugal 13.6% (FT 1/19/12, p.7). In other words, “the crises” does not adversely affect some economies, that in fact profit from their market dominance and techno-financial strength over dependent, debtor and backward economies. To speak of a ‘global crises’ obscures the fundamental dominant and exploitative relations that facilitate ‘recovery’ and growth of the elite economies over and against their competitors and client states. In addition global crises theorists wrongly amalgamated crises ridden, financial-speculative economies (US, England ) with dynamic productive export economies ( Germany , China ).

The second problem with the thesis of a “global crises” is that it overlooks profound internal differences between age cohorts. In several European countries youth unemployment (16-25) runs between 30 to 50% (Spain 48.7%, Greece 47.2%, Slovakia 35.6%, Italy 31%, Portugal 30.8% and Ireland 29%) while in Germany, Austria and Holland youth unemployment runs to Germany 7.8%, Austria 8.2% and Netherlands 8.6% (Financial Times (FT) 2/1/12, p2). These differences underlie the reason why there is not a ‘global youth movement’ of “indignant” and “occupiers” .Five-fold differences between unemployed youth is not conducive to ‘international’ solidarity. The concentration of high youth unemployment figures explains the uneven development of mass- street protests especially centered in Southern Europe . It also explains why the northern Euro-American “anti-globalization” movement is largely a lifeless forum which attracts academic pontification on the “global capitalist crises” and the impotence of the “Social Forums” are unable to attract millions of unemployed youth from Southern Europe .They are more attracted to direct action. Globalist theorists overlook the specific way in which the mass of unemployed young workers are exploited in their dependent debt ridden countries. They ignore the specific way they are ruled and repressed by center-left and rightist capitalist parties. The contrast is most evident in the winter of 2012. Greek workers are pressured to accept a 20% cut in minimum wages while in Germany workers are demanding a 6% increase.

If the ‘crises’ of capitalism is manifested in specific regions, so too does it affect different age/racial sectors of the wage and salaries classes. The unemployment rates of youth to older workers varies enormously: in Italy it is 3.5/1, Greece 2.5/1, Portugal 2.3/1, Spain 2.1/1 and Belgium 2.9/1. In Germany it is 1.5/1 (FT 2/1/12). In other words because of the higher levels of unemployment among youth they have a greater propensity for direct action ‘against the system’; while older workers with higher levels of employment (and unemployment benefits) have shown a greater propensity to rely on the ballot box and engage in limited strikes over job and pay related issues. The vast concentration of unemployed among young workers means they form the ‘available core’ for sustained action; but it also means that they can only achieve limited unity of action with the older working class experiencing single digit unemployment.

However, it is also true that the great mass of unemployment youth provides a formidable weapon, in the hands of employers to threaten to replace employed older workers. Today, capitalists constantly resort to using the unemployed to lower wages and benefits and to intensify exploitation (dubbed to “increase productivity”) to increase profit margins. Far from being simply an indicater of ‘capitalist crises’, high levels of unemployment have served along with other factors’ to increase the rate of profit, accumulate income, widen income inequalities which augments the consumption of luxury goods for the capitalist class: the sales of luxury cars and watches is booming.

 

Class Crises: The Counter-Thesis

 

Contrary to the “global capitalist crises” theorists, a substantial amount of data has surfaced which refutes its assumptions. A recent study reports “US corporate profits are higher as a share of gross domestic product than at any time since 1950” (FT 1/30/12). US companies cash balances have never been greater, thanks to intensified exploitation of workers, and a multi-tiered wage systems in which new hires work for a fraction of what older workers receive (thanks to agreements signed by ‘door mat’ labor bosses).

The “crises of capitalism” ideologues have ignored the financial reports of the major US corporations. According to General Motors 2011 report to its stockholders, they celebrated the greatest profit ever, turning a profit of $7.6 billion, surpassing the previous record of $6.7 billion in 1997. A large part of these profits results from the freezing of its underfunded US pension funds and extracting greater productivity from fewer workers-in other words intensified exploitation-and cutting hourly wages of new hires by half. (EarthLink News 2/16/12)

Moreover the increased importance of imperialist exploitation is evident as the share of US corporate profits extracted overseas keeps rising at the expense of employee income growth. In 2011, the US economy grew by 1.7%,but median wages fell by 2.7%.According to the financial press” the profit margins of the S and P 500 leapt from

6% to 9% of the GDP in the past three years, a share last achieved three generations ago. At roughly a third, the foreign share of these profits has more than doubled since 2000”(FT 2/13/12 P9.If this is a “capitalist crises” then who needs a capitalist boom ?

Surveys of top corporations reveal that US companies are holding 1.73 trillion in cash, “the fruits of record high profit margins” (FT 1/30/12 p.6). These record profit margins result from mass firings which have led to intensifying exploitation of the remaining workers. Also, negligible federal interest rates and easy access to credit allow capitalists to exploit vast differentials between borrowing and lending and investing. Lower taxes and cuts in social programs result in a growing cash pile for corporations. Within the corporate structure, income goes to the top where senior executives pay themselves huge bonuses. Among the leading S and P 500 corporations the proportion of income that goes to dividends for stockholders is the lowest since 1900 (FT 1/30/12, p.6).

A real capitalist crisis would adversely affect profit margins, gross earnings and the accumulation of “cash piles”. Rising profits are being horded because as capitalists profit from intense exploitation, mass consumption stagnates.

Crises theorists confuse what is clearly the degrading of labor, the savaging of living and working conditions and even the stagnation of the economy, with a ‘crises’ of capital: when the capitalist class increases its profit margins, hoards trillions, it is not in crises. The key point is that the ‘crises of labor’ is a major stimulus for the recovery of capitalist profits. We cannot generalize from one to the other. No doubt there was a moment of capitalist crises (2008-2009) but thanks to the capitalist state’s unprecedented massive transfer of wealth from the public treasury to the capitalist class – Wall Street banks in the first instance – the corporate sector recovered, while the workers and the rest of the economy remained in crises, went bankrupt and out of work.

 

From Crises to Recovery of Profits: 2008/9 to 2012

 

The key to the ‘recovery’ of corporate profits had little to do with the business cycle and all to do with Wall Street’s large-scale takeover and pillage of the US Treasury. Between 2009-2012 hundreds of former Wall Street executives, managers and investment advisers seized all the major decision-making positions in the Treasury Department and channeled trillions of dollars into leading financial and corporate coffers. They intervened financially troubled corporations, like General Motors, imposing major wage cuts and dismissals of thousands of workers.

Wall Streeters in Treasury elaborated the doctrine of “Too Big to Fail” to justify the massive transfer of wealth. The entire speculative edifice built in part by a 234 fold rise in foreign exchange trading volume between 1977-2010 was restored (FT 1/10/12, p.7). The new doctrine argued that the state’s first and principle priority is to return the financial system to profitability at any and all cost to society, citizens, taxpayers and workers. “Too Big to Fail” is a complete repudiation of the most basic principle of the “free market” capitalist system: the idea that those capitalists who lose bear the consequences; that each investor or CEO, is responsible for their action. Financial capitalists no longer needed to justify their activity in terms of any contribution to the growth of the economy or “social utility”. According to the current rulers Wall Street must be saved because it is Wall Street, even if the rest of the economy and people sink (FT 1/20/12, p.11). State bailouts and financing are complemented by hundreds of billions in tax concessions, leading to unprecedented fiscal deficits and the growth of massive social inequalities. The pay of CEO’s as a multiple of the average worker went from 24 to 1 in 1965 to 325 in 2010 (FT 1/9/12, p.5).

The ruling class flaunts their wealth and power aided and abetted by the White House and Treasury. In the face of popular hostility to Wall Street pillage of Treasury, Obama went through the sham of asking Treasury to impose a cap on the multi-million dollar bonuses that the CEO’s running bailed out banks awarded themselves. Wall Streeters in Treasury refused to enforce the executive order, the CEO’s got billions in bonuses in 2011 . President Obama went along, thinking he conned the US public with his phony gesture, while he reaped millions in campaign funds from Wall Street!

The reason Treasury has been taken over by Wall Street is that in the 1990’s and 2000’s, banks became a leading force in Western economies. Their share of the GDP rose sharply (from 2% in the 1950’s to 8% in 2010” (FT 1/10/12, p.7).

Today it is “normal operating procedure” for President’s to appoint Wall Streeter’s to all key economic positions; and it is ‘normal’ for these same officials to pursue policies that maximize Wall Street profits and eliminate any risk of failure no matter how risky and corrupt their practioners.

 

The Revolving Door: From Wall Street to Treasury and Return

 

Effectively the relation between Wall Street and Treasury has become a “revolving door”: from Wall Street to the Treasury Department to Wall Street. Private bankers take appointments in Treasury (or are recruited) to ensure that all resources and policies Wall Street needs are granted with maximum effort, with the least hindrance from citizens, workers or taxpayers. Wall Streeters in Treasury give highest priority to Wall Street survival, recovery and expansion of profits. They block any regulations or restrictions on bonuses or a repeat of past swindles.

Wall Streeters ‘make a reputation’ in Treasury and then return to the private sector in higher positions, as senior advisers and partners. A Treasury appointment is a ladder up the Wall Street hierarchy. Treasury is a filling station to the Wall Street Limousine: ex Wall Streeters fill up the tank, check the oil and then jump in the front seat and zoom to a lucrative job and let the filling station (public) pay the bill.

Approximately 774 officials (and counting) departed from Treasury between January 2009 and August 2011 (FT 2/6/12, p. 7). All provided lucrative “services” to their future Wall Street bosses finding it a great way to re-enter private finance at a higher more lucrative position.

A report in the Financial Times Feb. 6, 2012 (p. 7) entitled appropriately Manhattan Transfer” provides typical illustrations of the Treasury-Wall Street “revolving door”.

Ron Bloom went from a junior banker at Lazard to Treasury, helping to engineer the trillion dollar bailout of Wall Street and returned to Lazard as a senior adviser. Jake Siewert went from Wall Street to becoming a top aide to Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and then graduated to Goldman Sachs, having served to undercut any cap on Wall Street bonuses.

Michael Mundaca, the most senior tax official in the Obama regime came from the Street and then went on to a highly lucrative post in Ernst and Young a corporate accounting firm, having helped write down corporate taxes during his stint in “public office”.

Eric Solomon, a senior tax official in the infamous corporate tax free Bush Administration made the same switch. Jeffrey Goldstein who Obama put in charge of financial regulation and succeeded in undercutting popular demands, returned to his previous employer Hellman and Friedman with the appropriate promotion for services rendered.

Stuart Levey who ran AIPAC sanctions against Iran policies out if Treasury’s so-called “anti- terrorist agency” was hired as general counsel by HSBC to defend it from investigations for money laundering (FT 2/6/12, p. 7). In this case Levey moved from promoting Israel’s ’ war aims to defending an international bank accused of laundering billions in Mexican cartel money. Levey, by the way spent so much time pursuing Israel’s ’ Iran agenda that he totally ignored the Mexican drug cartels’ billion dollar money laundering cross-border operations for the better part of a decade.

Lew Alexander a senior advisor to Geithner in designing the trillion dollar bail out is now a senior official in Nomura, the Japanese bank. Lee Sachs went from Treasury to Bank Alliance, (his own “lending platform”). James Millstein went from Lazard to Treasury bailed out AIG insurance run into the ground by Greenberg and then established his own private investment firm taking a cluster of well-connected Treasury officials with him.

The Goldman-Sachs-Treasury “revolving door” continues today. In addition to past and current Treasury heads Paulson and Geithner, former Goldman partner Mark Patterson was recently appointed Geithner’s “chief of staff”. Tim Bowler former Goldman managing director was appointed by Obama to head up the capital markets division.

It should be abundantly clear that elections, parties and the billion dollar electoral campaigns have little to do with “democracy” and more to do with selecting the President and legislators who will appoint non-elected Wall Streeters to make all the strategic economic decisions for the 99% of Americans. The policy results of the Wall Street-Treasury revolving door are clear and provide us with a framework for understanding why the “profit crises” has vanished and the crises of labor has deepened.

 

The “Policy Achievements” of the Revolving Door

 

The Wall Street-Treasury conundrum (WSTC) has performed herculean and audacious labor for finance and corporate capital. In the face of universal condemnation of Wall Street by the vast majority of the public for its swindles, bankruptcies, job losses and mortgage foreclosures, the WSTC publically backed the swindlers with a trillion dollar bailout. A daring move on the face of it; that is if majorities and elections counted for anything. Equally important the WSTC dumped the entire “free market” ideology that justified capitalist profits based on its “risks”, by imposing the new dogma of “too big to fail” in which the state treasury guarantees profits even when capitalists face bankruptcy, providing they are billion dollar firms. The WSTC dumped the capitalist principle of “fiscal responsibility” in favor of hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts for the corporate-financial ruling class, running up record peace time budget deficits and then having the audacity to blame the social programs

supported by popular majorities. (Is it any wonder these ex-Treasury officials get such lucrative offers in the private sector when they leave public office?) Thirdly, Treasury and the Central Bank (Federal Reserve) provide near zero interest loans that guarantees big profits to private financial institution which borrow low from the Fed and lend high, (including back to the Government!) especially in purchasing overseas Government and corporate bonds. They receive anywhere from four to ten times the interest rates they pay. In other words the taxpayers provide a monstrous subsidy for Wall Street speculation. With the added proviso, that today these speculative activities are now insured by the Federal government, under the “Too Big to Fail” doctrine.

Under the ideology of “regaining competitiveness” the Obama economic team (from Treasury, the Federal Reserve, Commerce, Labor) has encouraged employers to engage in the most aggressive shedding of workers in modern history. Increased productivity and profitability is not the result of “innovation” as Obama, Geithner and Bernache claim; it is a product of a state labor policy which deepens inequality by holding down wages and raising profit margins. Fewer workers producing more commodities. Cheap credit and bailouts for the billion dollar banks and no refinancing for households and small and medium size firms leading to bankruptcies, buyouts and ‘consolidation’ namely, greater concentration of ownership. As a result the mass market stagnates but corporate and bank profits reach record levels. According to financial experts under the WSTC “new order” “bankers are a protected class who enjoy bonuses regardless of performance, while relying on the taxpayer to socialize their losses” (FT 1/9/12, p.5). In contrast, labor, under Obama’s economic team, faces the greatest insecurity and most threatening situation in recent history: “in what is unquestionably novel is the ferocity with which US business sheds labor now that executive pay and incentive schemes are linked to short term performance targets” (FT 1/9/2012, p. 5).

 

Economic Consequences of State Policies

 

Because of the Wall Street “takeover” of strategic economic policy positions in Government we can now understand the paradox of record profit margins in the midst of economic stagnation. We can comprehend why the capitalist crises has, at least temporarily, been replaced by a profound crises of labor. Within the power matrix of Wall Street-Treasury Dept. all the old corrupt and exploitative practices that led up to the 2008-2009 crash have returned: multi-billion dollar bonuses for investment bankers who led the economy into the crash; banks “snapping up billions of dollars of bundled mortgage products that resemble the sliced and diced debt some (sic) blame for the financial crises” (FT 2/8/12, p.1). The difference today is that these speculative instruments are now backed by the taxpayer (Treasury). The supremacy of the financial structure of the pre-crises US economy is in place and thriving … “only”, the US labor force has sunk into greater unemployment, declining living standards, widespread insecurity and profound discontent.

 

Conclusion: The Case Against Capitalism and for Socialism

 

The profound crises of 2008-2009 provoked a spate of questioning of the capitalist system, even among many of its most ardent advocates (FT 1/8/12 to 1/30/12) criticism abounded. ‘Reform, regulation and redistribution’ were the fare of financial columnists. Yet the ruling economic and governing class took no heed. The workers are controlled by door mat union leaders and lack a political instrument. The rightwing pseudo populists embrace an even more virulent pro capitalist agenda, calling for across the board elimination of social programs and corporate taxes. Inside the state, a major transformation has taken place which effectively smashed any link between capitalism and social welfare, between government decision-making and the electorate. Democracy has been replaced by a corporate state, founded on the revolving door between Treasury and Wall Street, which funnels public wealth to private financial coffers. The breach between the welfare of society and the operations of the financial architecture is definitive.

The activity of Wall Street has no social utility, its practitioners enrich themselves with no redeeming activity. Capitalism has demonstrated conclusively, that it thrives through the degradation of tens of millions of workers and rejects the endless pleas for reform and regulation. Real existing capitalism cannot be harnessed to raising living standards or ensuring employment free of fear of large scale, sudden and brutal firings. Capitalism, as we experience it over the past decade and for the foreseeable future, is in polar opposition to social equality, democratic decision-making and collective welfare.

Record capitalist profits are accrued by pillaging the public treasury, denying pensions and prolonging ‘work till you die’, bankrupting most families with exorbitant private corporate medical and educational costs.

More than ever in recent history, record majorities reject the rule by and for the bankers and the corporate ruling class (FT 2/6/12, p. 6). Inequalities between the top 1% and the bottom 99% have reached record proportions. CEO’s earn 325 times that of an average worker (FT 1/9/12, p.5). Since the state has become the ‘foundation’ of the economy of the Wall Street predators, and since ‘reform’ and regulation has dismally failed, it is time to consider a fundamental systemic transformation that begins via a political revolution which forcibly ousts the non-elected financial and corporate elites running the state for their own exclusive interests. The entire political process, including elections, are profoundly corrupt: each level of office has its own inflated price tag. The current Presidential contest will cost $2 to $3 billion dollars to determine which of the servants of Wall Street will preside over the revolving door.

Socialism is no longer the scare word of the past. Socialism involves the large-scale reorganization of the economy, the transfer of trillions from the coffers of predator classes’ of no social utility to the public welfare. This change can finance a productive and innovative economy based on work and leisure, study and sport. Socialism replaces the everyday terror of dismissal with the security that brings confidence, assurance and respect to the workplace. Workplace democracy is at the heart of the vision of 21st century socialism. We begin by nationalizing the banks and eliminating Wall Street. Financial institutions are redesigned to create productive employment, to serve social welfare and to preserve the environment. Socialism would begin the transition, from a capitalist economy directed by predators and swindlers and a state at their command, toward an economy of public ownership under democratic control.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Have I not warned you of Global Research’s Socialist intent? Notice how expertly they itemize all of the atrocities the elite’s heap on the backs of the working class, enrage you with their greed, then imply that socialism is the answer to all of our problems. They are experts at manipulating the human mind, and promoting socialism as the cure all.

AND, the sad part of this is, IT WORKS, because the average worker is ignorant of socialism’s failed promises’, and the extraordinary regulations that the workers are finally throttled with outside of their occupations. SOCIALISM SUCKS, JUST AS ITS PROMOTERS DO!

The only cure for the atrocities being heaped on our backs is intelligent regulation of Banking, and investment firms, plus honest politicians. Political accountability is the only way out of this quicksand economy. If the politicians will not stay honest, throw them to the dogs, and laugh at their screams of torment.

Send the international banker to hell, along with their families.

Exterminate their genes from the face of the earth, or your children will be their children’s slaves, and concubines.

AMERICA,

The land of the free and the home of the brave, my ASS, American’s no longer have the balls to save their own children!

America’s Sheriffs Fight Barack Obama And Federal Government

Something extraordinary and historic took place mere days ago in Las Vegas, Nevada.

For three days, from January 29 and 31, 2012, in the Tuscany Hotel & Casino, more than 120 county sheriffs, from across the United States of America, met in a first annual, "Constitutional Sheriffs Convention".

This is what Wikipedia says about U.S. sheriffs: "In the United States, a sheriff is a county official and is typically the top law enforcement officer of a county. Historically, the sheriff was also commander of the militia in that county. Distinctive to law enforcement in the United States, sheriffs are usually elected. The political election of a person to serve as a police leader is an almost uniquely American tradition."

The first Constitutional Sheriffs Convention is the brainchild of the www.CountySheriffProject.org and the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association at www.CSPOA.org .

For a video describing the CSPOA, go to www.YouTube.com and type in: Special report: County Sheriffs Push Back Against Feds

The convention's objective is two-fold:

1. To increase the understanding and awareness for all sheriffs and peace officers regarding the true power of our constitutional authority and duty to serve and protect the people for whom we work.

2. To unite in a concerted effort to uphold and defend the United States Constitution.

Given the importance of the convention, it is curious to say the least that the media have chosen to totally ignore it. Curious, too, is the fact that I scoured the Internet yesterday but could find scant news on the convention, much less a report – not even on the website of the County Sheriff Project.

But I did find an audio of a 1.5 hr Revolution Radio broadcast on the convention, an hour of which consists of phoned-in interviews with several sheriffs who attended the conference, as well as other attendees, mainly Stewart Rhodes, founder of www.OathKeepers.org To listen to the audio, Go to google and type in: Revolution Radio: Constitutional Sheriffs Conference

Stewart Rhodes said the sheriffs "are working on a series of resolutions" at the convention, among which is a "Resolution of the Sheriff Against NDAA 2012", drafted by Rhodes and constitutional attorney Richard Fry, for the sheriffs to sign.

NDAA is the notorious National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 which effectively nullifies the Bill of Rights by making it lawful for the U.S. President and the military to arrest and detain U.S. citizens without charge or trial. From the Oath Keepers' website, it appears the sheriffs at the convention did not sign the Resolution as a collective body. Rhodes is asking the sheriffs to sign the Resolution as individual sheriffs.

Rhodes opined that political party labels don't mean much anymore, referring in particular to how the NDAA is "a bipartisan assault on our civil liberties," which was spearheaded by Republican John McCain and Democrat Carl Levin.

Rhodes emphasized that a second American Revolution has already taken place under our noses and our Constitution's been overthrown. "We have had people who are determined to destroy our Constitutional Republic to create a tyranny." But this revolution is not fully recognized by the American people, who must be informed and educated. He calls for Americans, especially the military and the police, to emulate the "peaceful revolution of 1800″ when Thomas Jefferson and James Madison rose up against the Anti-Sedition Act to sweep federal oath-breakers out of office.

Rhodes was followed by several sheriffs, who spoke one by one. They included: Sheriff Dean Wilson of Del Norte County in Northern California, Sheriff John Cooke of Weld County, Colorado, Sheriff John Lopey from Northern California's Siskiyou County and Sheriff Greg Hagwood of Plumas County in Northern California. An excellent video of these men explaining there problems with Federal agents and how they defeated them can be seen by going to www.YouTube.com and typing in: Constitutional sheriffs. And for a very good explanation of a Sheriff successfully opposing the Federal Government and protecting the citizens in his county, type in: Sheriff Tony DeMeo.

120 to 140 sheriffs from all across America. Many ("a great showing") from California and the western states, but also from Texas, Florida and the eastern seaboard. Some sheriffs also brought their second-in-charge to the convention. A list of the names of the sheriffs who were at the convention will be published.

There was a Sheriffs Panel in which 8 sheriffs spoke.

There were presentations by various speakers who "spoke powerfully" on Agenda 21 and the Bill of Rights. Even though some of the sheriffs didn't know about some of the issues, "they are listening" and "have a humility about them." "They really want to know and are sticking their necks out by coming here.

What the sheriffs got out of the conference: 1. A renewed knowledge and understanding of the U.S. Constitution and "how it's related to county sheriffs who are sworn to defend and protect the Constitution.
