War, said James Madison, is “the true nurse of executive aggrandizement.” Randolph Bourne, the radical essayist killed by the influenza unleashed by World War I, warned, “War is the health of the state.” Hence Barack Obama’s State of the Union hymn: Onward civilian soldiers, marching as to war.
Obama, an unfettered executive wielding a swollen state, began and ended his address by celebrating the armed forces. They are not “consumed with personal ambition,” they “work together” and “focus on the mission at hand” and do not “obsess over their differences.” Americans should emulate troops “marching into battle,” who “rise or fall as one unit.”
Well. The armed services’ ethos, although noble, is not a template for civilian society, unless the aspiration is to extinguish politics. People marching in serried ranks, fused into a solid mass by the heat of martial ardor, proceeding in lock step, shoulder to shoulder, obedient to orders from a commanding officer — this is a recurring dream of progressives eager to dispense with tiresome persuasion and untidy dissension in a free, tumultuous society.
Progressive presidents use martial language as a way of encouraging Americans to confuse civilian politics with military exertions, thereby circumventing an impediment to progressive aspirations — the Constitution and the patience it demands. As a young professor, Woodrow Wilson had lamented that America’s political parties “are like armies without officers.” The most theoretically inclined of progressive politicians, Wilson was the first president to criticize America’s founding. This he did thoroughly, rejecting the Madisonian system of checks and balances — the separation of powers, a crucial component of limited government — because it makes a government that cannot be wielded efficiently by a strong executive.
Franklin Roosevelt agreed. He complained about “the three-horse team of the American system”: “If one horse lies down in the traces or plunges off in another direction, the field will not be plowed.” And progressive plowing takes precedence over constitutional equipoise among the three branches of government. Hence FDR’s attempt to break the Supreme Court to his will by enlarging it.
In his first inaugural address, FDR demanded “broad executive power to wage a war against the emergency, as great as the power that would be given to me if we were in fact invaded by a foreign foe.” He said Americans must “move as a trained and loyal army” with “a unity of duty hitherto evoked only in time of armed strife.” The next day, addressing the American Legion, Roosevelt said it was “a mistake to assume that the virtues of war differ essentially from the virtues of peace.” In such a time, dissent is disloyalty.
Yearnings for a command society were common and respectable then. Commonweal, a magazine for liberal Catholics, said that Roosevelt should have “the powers of a virtual dictatorship to reorganize the government.” Walter Lippmann, then America’s preeminent columnist, said: “A mild species of dictatorship will help us over the roughest spots in the road ahead.” The New York Daily News, then the nation’s largest-circulation newspaper, cheerfully editorialized: “A lot of us have been asking for a dictator. Now we have one. . . . It is Roosevelt. . . . Dictatorship in crises was ancient Rome’s best era.” The New York Herald Tribune titled an editorial “For Dictatorship if Necessary.”
Obama, aspiring to command civilian life, has said that in reforming health care, he would have preferred an “elegant, academically approved” plan without “legislative fingerprints on it” but “unfortunately” he had to conduct “negotiations with a lot of different people.” His campaign mantra “We can’t wait!” expresses progressivism’s impatience with our constitutional system of concurrent majorities. To enact and execute federal laws under Madison’s institutional architecture requires three, and sometimes more, such majorities. There must be majorities in the House and Senate, each body having distinctive constituencies and electoral rhythms. The law must be affirmed by the president, who has a distinctive electoral base and election schedule. Supermajorities in both houses of Congress are required to override presidential vetoes. And a Supreme Court majority is required to sustain laws against constitutional challenges.
“We can’t wait!” exclaims Obama, who makes recess appointments when the Senate is not in recess, multiplies “czars” to further nullify the Senate’s constitutional prerogative to advise and consent, and creates agencies (e.g., Obamacare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board and Dodd-Frank’sConsumer Financial Protection Bureau) untethered from legislative accountability.
Like other progressive presidents fond of military metaphors, he rejects the patience of politics required by the Constitution he has sworn to uphold.
For a more erudite presentation of what is going through my mind, let me begin by quoting E.G. Vibes “Peaceful Politics Part 1”
“In republics we are forced to put our trust in representatives who don’t have our best interests in mind, while in democracies we are subject to the whims of the majority, and these whims are of course controlled and manipulated by those in society who have the most control and influence. It seems that either way, the average people really don’t have a say in what happens in their society and they are typically subject to various forms of oppression that are justified by the state.
Oftentimes the debate arises, is America a republic or a democracy? I would argue that it has been a little bit of both, as I’m guessing this is where the “republican” and “democrat” branches come from. In reality our form of government has properties of both a republic and a democracy. Sadly, when we look at the government today, we can say that we unfortunately end up with the worst of both worlds.
Why is it that these systems both fail to protect the rights of the people? Because both systems give certain groups of people authority over other groups of people and both systems allow that privileged group to initiate force without consequence. In a republic the privileged group is the representative, while in a direct democracy the privileged group is the mob and the aristocrats who manipulate the mob through media and rhetoric.
Let’s start with the democratic system of government. At face value this system sounds great, holding votes and getting everyone involved in the society is a wonderful thing. However, this form of government is extremely corruptible, which is why it is praised by aristocrats and bureaucrats alike. Even in a pure system of direct democracy where there are no politicians, the citizens are still vulnerable to being manipulated into making decisions that are against their best interests. Likewise, those who happen to disagree with the whims of the majority are subject to the tyranny of the mob, which is why direct democracy is sometimes called mob rule.
A republic is put forth as an alternative to this system. In theory, a republic offers “representatives”, which are people who are said to be selected in order to preserve the rights of the people. Apparently, these “representatives” are given the power to direct the course of civilization in order to protect the rights of the minority from tyranny of the majority. Unfortunately, this never happens because republics are extremely easy to corrupt, due to the fact that so much power is concentrated in so few hands and the ability that those in power have to commit crimes and get away with them.
Even if the founders of a country and the first few generations of rulers are the epitome of moral virtue, eventually a psychopath will come along and grant himself powers and immunities, that all future psychopaths will further exploit, until the whole system is eventually corrupted and filled with psychopaths.
This is nothing new, this has happened constantly throughout history, all the way from the ancient Greek and Roman empires to every society that has attempted to replicate these systems. In fact, these ancient societies are the root of this age-old argument between republics and democracies, with the republic being represented by Rome and democracy being represented by Greece. If we bring this argument into the context of these ancient empires we will find that this debate is really a comparison of the aristocratic forms of government that failed in Rome and Greece thousands of years ago. Each of these cultures had a tradition of slave-owning and subjugation, so although they were starting to scratch the surface of ideas like autonomy and liberty, their actions showed that they had a very primitive level of respect for human life and the values of non-aggression.
There is no reason why our understanding of political philosophy needs to be stuck in the ancient world, when we have advanced and progressed in nearly every other aspect of our development. For us to truly become a civilized society, ideas like authority, justified sinning and subjective standards must be left behind and associated with oppressive traditions of our past like cultural slavery and arranged marriages, for example. A civilized society does not solve their problems with weapons and cages, so until we learn our way out of this and discover a new way of doing business, we really cannot say that our world is civilized.
Since we have explored the violent aspects of these control systems it is now important for us to recognize how these ideas are truly obsessive compulsive and utopian in nature.
The state of our civilization is absolutely abysmal, so it really is not too unreasonable to suggest that we need a whole new way of doing business, a whole new way of structuring our society that has yet to be attempted. As Einstein noted the definition of insanity should be “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. With that being said, how insane is it that our species has attempted to recreate the same failed civilizations time and time again. Yet unfortunately, whenever someone suggests that we take a new approach at organizing our society, they are the ones who are called insane, or at very least “utopian”.
The whole idea behind a “utopia” is to create a perfect society. This sounds great and all, but history has shown us that all attempts to create a utopia have come at very high costs and have been riddled with violence. In short, things have been forced. It seems that the path to the promised land has always been littered with corpses because those in power have insisted on using violence and subjugation to force their will onto the rest of the population, in failed attempts to create what they felt the ideal society would be. If anything, I would argue that our society is currently operating according to a utopian perspective. It is idealistic and perfectionistic to think that a small portion of society is capable of creating a world of peace and freedom, by committing acts of violence, making threats and imposing laws that they themselves refuse to follow.
What we have now, and what has come before us, that is utopian. To suggest that a more peaceful way of doing things would bring about a better society that on the other hand is not utopian. Of course, this is not how we are taught to look at things through the media and government schooling. Through these channels we are led to believe that society as it is right now is pinnacle of human achievement, and to think otherwise is unrealistic, idealistic, utopian, or even “extreme”.
I guarantee you, that the day before slavery was outlawed, there were slave owners claiming that it was absolutely impossible for the slaves to be free. Sadly, the majority of the slaves actually believed this lie, or else they would have long since overran the plantations and declared their own freedom. This is because in every case of subjugation throughout history, the oppressors have depended on various forms of mental coercion to exploit their neighbors. The threat of violence simply is not enough to make people submit to authority, therefore those in authority create philosophies that justify the needless suffering that the majority of society is forced to endure.
Every since the day I learned that the constitution did not release us from economic bondage to The International Investment Bankers, England, and the Vatican, My mind has been in a turmoil, wrestling with patriotic loyalty to the Constitution, and the shear impossibility of our government ever doing what we expected of them. Our government has Never Done Its Job as we were told it should.
The atrocities that American’s and other Nations have endured from the constant wars and theft of our money and freedoms is beyond comprehension. We must become capable of doing better at preserving our freedoms or we will soon be absolute slaves with no possibility of a return to freedom.
Therefore, it seems prudent that we find men capable of assessing the situation, and making suggestions on how to start over with a new Constitution that makes it impossible for politicians to deviate from its chains. When I consider how we have been brainwashed from childhood to accept these atrocities and remain loyal to a system that has NEVER worked, it makes me wonder if humanity is worth saving.
On my more positive days the rage against tyranny in government strengthens me, and I find myself trying to do something the Lord did not see fit to equip me for, and then I fall right back into this intellectual vacuum that humiliates me into depression. This is not how any thinking human being should have to live their life. Where the hell are those intellectual giants that can correct this unbearable cluster fuck?
There are times when the writings of Thomas Jefferson inspire me to great emotion, and admiration of him, but then reality sets in and I consider this! How was it possible for a man with his intellect to participate in a government that he knew full well was doomed to fail, as history authenticates. He had to have known that a Republic that was FINANCIALLY OBLIGATED TO OTHERS and dependent on honest politicians would fail, and yet he fought for it with all his strength.
On further consideration of Amos 3:3 “Can two walk together , unless they are agreed?” I despair of humanity ever being capable of enough unity to govern them selves without subjecting some to force, which brings me to the one thought that will not go away.
Why not itemize the political concepts so the masses can understand them and then divide their-selves into like minded communities and choose their own brand of government , or no government at all; that would take only one universal law to produce peace. When you cross this line, you obey our rules and you won’t get back home in one piece if you don’t. Intelligent men call this secession, and tried it once, but the forces of evil were to well financed to overcome.
SECESSION IS HUMANITIES LAST CHANCE!
And many will have to die to obtain it!

When the Cold War ended, a secret fund planned for by President Ronald Reagan had been set aside to rebuild America, pay off the national debt and reward Americans for decades of sacrifice.
This was the real accomplishment of his presidency, one few knew of.
As the funds finally came together, during the first years of the Clinton administration, instead of going to America, the man chosen to secure this legacy for America was put in a Swiss dungeon, then a mental hospital and eventually railroaded into prison on charges now admitted to have been “manufactured.”
Of the funds, only $4.5 trillion remain (plus interest, less taxes), belonging to Ameritrust Corporation, held for the American people. This is some of the story of those funds and continuing attempts by politicians and bankers to continue destroying the United States through economic terrorism.
Many who read this will already know part of the story, some were involved, I am sure, in related operations. I am part of that group. The facts, documents, secret operations carefully vetted, confirmed, all now ready for release to those cleared for such, others are public domain.
It is our job to put out a story we are largely unauthorized to tell.
Of those who work in Special Operations and such things, I am one of the very few with a background in international finance. This is not written for public consumption but I will publish it anyway, do with it as you will. I am writing to our “community.” You know who you are.
Whose Money Were They Lending? – Stolen Money?
Over the past few years, amounts of money and practices none of us had imagined have been hitting the news.
We hear one day that the Federal Reserve secretly lends out trillions of dollars illegally, yet these criminal acts by the Federal Reserve, though reported, are never investigated.
In fact, there is no agency empowered to audit or control the Federal Reserve whose very existence itself no one understands and, if they did, none would approve of.
It doesn’t say whose dollars or where they went or what America got in return. We are led to believe they came out of thin air, went to places that are “none of our business” and were or were not paid back, also none of our business.
What happened? America got screwed.
Years ago, I had been asked to look after a former Reagan official named Lee Wanta. Some of you will understand this sentence, who does the asking, and what “look after” means.
I knew he had been kidnapped in Switzerland and, though a diplomat, sent to the US and imprisoned on criminal charges we knew to be a total invention.
His personal attorney was Chief Legal Counsel for the Central Intelligence Agency.
My retiree job is as an intelligence contractor working with pro-US clients. I “brief,” not interview. I am not a journalist by trade. I am one of the thousands of Americans that middle age has turned from a “knock in the back of the head” guy to someone who can talk his way out of a dozen foreign jails.
I am simply one of many Americans that few know exist, a Marine, a Vietnam veteran and someone who spent much of his life with his head upside down.
What Happened to Lee Wanta Actually Happened to All Americans
Who Stole the Money – And Who Did They Steal it For?
Ambassador Wanta has court documentation that he is owed $7.2 trillion dollars, private capital designated for one purpose, rebuilding the American economy.
The money was garnered through exploiting insane errors in the pricing of currencies and exploiting the economic policies of the former Soviet Union. Some of the profits had ended up in the Bank of China and were, according to legal agreement, repatriated to the United States, what remained anyway.
Initially, $4.5 trillion was transferred to the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond while issues of law and taxes were negotiated. This is the remainder of a larger fund, transferred into the US while litigation was to determine tax liability and little else.
Secretly, a group of individuals has been using and diverting these funds.
Why does the fund exist? Wanta worked for Reagan, National Intelligence Coordinator and then was nominated by Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa at Reagan’s request to take over as Inspector General of the Department of Defense.
Instead, Reagan assigned Wanta to a project to raise huge amounts of money trading currency. Some of this is on the internet and much of it is correct. The total amount raised, based on collateral supplied by the US Department of Treasury in a secret intelligence operation was 27 trillion USD.
Over the years, all but $4.5 trillion was stolen, much of it by a previous US president, some by the CIA, much by banks. Years ago, I was sent account numbers on some of the money and tried to locate it in concert with foreign intelligence agencies.
I would have returned the funds to the US government. Included is 2000 tons of gold, and dozens of bank accounts around the world. I have the account numbers, talked to the bankers and even, in one case, went directly to a chief of state.
What Has Been Stolen by the MegaCrooks is Beyond Imagination
Stolen cash is impossible to recover when half of it is paid out in bribes. As most of what I am writing is probably classified, let’s pretend I am making this all up.
Anyway, back to Wanta. During this time, Wanta had gone to court to recover his funds, which had grown to over $7 trillion.
The rest of the money, much of which came from currency trading at the largest scale in world history, we will never find.
Now a court has ordered Wanta to receive his money.
The company to receive the money is Ameritrust. The board members of Ameritrust are well known public people, a former Vice President, senators, generals and admirals and, of course, me.
The money is, officially, in the Federal Bank of Richmond and the order to return the funds was signed by the President of the United States based on an agreement with the Federal Courts.
Involved, over a period of years, is a group of people every American will know, from presidents and vice presidents to the heads of the Federal Reserve, Secretaries of Treasury, names like Bush and Cheney, Paulson, Bernake, Al Gore, some names working for America and too many trying to steal part of the money for themselves.
(Fax header from “deep cover” classified memo directly to President Bush)
When you heard news stories about the Federal Reserve making secret loans to the crooked ”bail out banks” that weren’t authorized by congress, they were lending out the $7.2 trillion “Wanta dollars” ordered paid by President Obama and the Federal Courts.
If you wondered how the Federal Reserve, that couldn’t print a few billion dollars without authorization from congress, lent out trillions that technically didn’t exist with no permission at all and there was no investigation, no questions asked and the story forgotten a day later, you will begin to understand by the end of this.
You will be extremely upset and angry also.
Thus far, here is part of that settlement I can tell you of but first, I had Wanta checked out.
To do that, I went to a top army intelligence officer from the Pentagon, one who had been Defense Attache to Israel and who had worked in Special Operations, war plans, clandestine operations and such since he was an A Team leader in Vietnam. I put him on with Wanta for hours and had Wanta interrogated.
Wanta knew dozens of the highest classified operations in US history, knew every Pentagon official including much highly detailed personal information. To our top Army intelligence officer, we were able to confirm that he was, unquestioningly, working for years at the highest levels of US intelligence.
The man who grilled him still hangs up the phone whenever I mention 9/11, a close personal friend of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.
This is the deal:
Ameritrust agrees to buy $1 trillion in 10 year treasury bonds, which will finance America’s national debt for the next year.
Ameritrust, as outlined by the court, agrees to pay $1.7 trillion in income tax, reducing the national debt significantly overnight.
Ameritrust has set aside $6 billion for disbursement, under my advisement, monies for two purposes:
1. Development of a program to end veteran homelessness and save a generation of young veterans. This is entirely privately donated money. A non-profit entity exists and programs can start today. Not one cent will be stolen or diverted.
2. Fund efforts to aid in closing the US border and put a 100% end to illegal immigration and drug trafficking. This involves billions of dollars, carefully administered, with the full cooperation of state and local officials who have already been consulted and are onboard.
Ameritrust has set aside, minimally, $1 trillion USD to build a high speed rail system for the United States with almost all components domestically constructed. This system includes stations, hotels and much more. The minimal impact will include:
1. Initial employment will begin at 80,000 with full employment in the manufacture, installation and security of this system 400,000 new jobs, all privately financed without one cent of taxpayer money.
2. Veterans will receive preference on all jobs but, as is obvious, employment goes well beyond our available veteran community.
3. Required technologies and the entities that control such will be purchased and manufacturing facilities will be located within the United States.
The economic impact on other transportation systems, particularly airlines, has been predicted and funding is available to minimize disruption.
America, of course, will become the world’s tourist destination, travel costs for top domestic destinations will lower by a minimum of $65% and no debt will be involved.
Four hundred thousand paychecks will put a dent in the recession the recession, produce tax revenue to allow additional pay down of national debt and, for the first time in decades, actually raise the standard of living in America.
This is all documented.
Studies showing lowered emissions and freedom from oil imports are almost frightening.
All this does, of course, is give Americans things that other nations around the world have had for years but at lower cost, financed through the foresight, frankly, of President Ronald Reagan.
This entire project was his plan. He entrusted the currency trading critical part of it to Lee Wanta, who some now considered the greatest intelligence coup of the Cold War. I had no idea.
That we are dealing with it now is because criminal elements within our government and financial industry including the Federal Reserve System have subverted this plan, ignored court orders and violated so many laws we can’t even count. They believe they can claim immunity and hide behind an national security justification.
This money is here today, it is 20 years old, it requires no new currency issue, it pays down debt and adds nothing but jobs, revenue and hope.
To stop this from moving forward, Wanta was kidnapped and jailed, court cases involving the top lawyers in the United States have gone on for 6 years and millions have been spent to either keep this out of the press or misrepresent facts that exist on enough legal documents to fill a Fed Ex van.
More than that, laws of diplomatic privilege have been violated and, a more serious security threat, Wanta was protected by federal statutes that protect intelligence agents, statutes misused by Oliver North and others, in this case, were as though they never existed.
Laws meant to protect America are now laws of convenience, used when they serve the banks or own our politicians, violated when patriots need to be silenced.
At one point, Wanta was put in a mental institution. He gave the psychiatrist a telephone number to call. Vice President Al Gore answered and confirmed Wanta’s identity.
Vice President Gore also confirmed that he had been informed that Lee Wanta was dead. When Gore learned Wanta was alive in the room, we suspect this is why Wanta is here and the Reagan/Ameritrust program is coming back to life.
The psychiatrist ordered Wanta’s release. Instead of release, he was jailed and the psychiatrist “warned” and then fired. We can prove this.
You have heard these stories a dozen times, Sibel Edmonds, John Wheeler III, Susan Lindauer and a hundred names you will never hear. Ask why Senator Paul Wellstone of Minnesota and his family are dead.
This is the real world we live in, why we pay so much for gas when the world money markets have crashed, when demand is nothing but prices rise daily and nobody ever asks anything.
We Want to Know
What we want to know and “we” is not a harmless bunch of cranks. “We” means many of the people who formerly and currently represent key “capabilities” that protect and defend the United States.
We want to know why, for years, the Federal Reserve illegally “loaned” trillions of dollars to banks that claimed they were insolvent, money in escrow and not under their authority for distribution.
We want to know why, for years, the Secretaries of Treasury authorized these illegal acts which have been reported in the news but never investigated.
We want to know where the trillions of dollars are in profits that were generated by using this currency to collateralize offshore transactions never listed by the banks who received the illegal loans.
Read that one again until you understand the extent of what I am saying and how obvious all of this is.
The money has been there to put America on her feet. Nobody ever explained how the Federal Reserve could lend trillions of dollars “illegally,” money never under their official control but rather under the supervision of the Federal District Court of the Eastern District of Virginia.
In addition to funding existing legal authorities to end illegal immigration overnight and begin a real war on drug trafficking, at some point there will be unpaid state income taxes totaling over $200 billion dollars.
We have the full backing of state governors, select members of congress and those financial leaders who choose to profit from honest business instead of insider trading and financial scams. This means “change.”
What we demand?
We want monies owed and ordered to be paid as law requires to be paid. All we are demanding is restoration of rule of law in accordance with existing court orders and legal judgements, nothing more.
We also have law enforcement and intelligence officials who tell us that they will never sleep another night until they have hunted all these people involved down and have seen justice done.
They say they are willing to spend their lives hunting assets, even to the ends of the earth, beginning with vacation homes, yachts, family trusts, safe deposit boxes, anywhere on the planet and that existing laws covering money laundering and terrorism give them the needed tools.
How Many Were Involved in Cooking the Books?
The term I keep hearing is “continuing criminal enterprise.” I am more a builder than one to seek retribution but others are not so forgiving. We believe this is why funds are being held up, out of fear.
As there is enough money here for Ameritrust to be the most powerful congressional lobby, being a “corporate person,” the richest ever imagined, think of the irony.
The laws meant to deprive Americans of their rights being used to restore democracy and rule of law. The idea is frightening.
As billions are assigned for veterans relief at a time of extreme national emergency, failure to do so is unthinkable.
America was never intended to be what it has become. We have the funds, the plans and the people to begin a rapid and well conceived turn-around of America.
This is a plan of investment in America, of hard work, of the most extreme form of financial conservatism thinkable.
This is about work and paying taxes and building in America for America by Americans.
Ask yourself who has been blocking this, who is above the law? Court documents on all of this, as required by law, are in the public domain.
Welcome to any who think this is less than we say.
Editing: Jim W. Dean…
Dear Folks, You may get tired of hearing this but I am going to say it once again. We have to take ownership of this problem. If we let them get away with this and keep their ill gotten gains there is absolutely nothing they will fear doing to us in the future. Only a conquered, defeated people would accept such a humiliation.
Fortunately, as the WOT has expanded the Special Operations Forces to 50,000, many are becoming aware of this situation and needless to say are more than a little unhappy about it. Add in legions of ole time civilian and military Intel people and we have a multi-generational trained and well motivated group of leaders ready.

The White Hats and Ed Falcone have been in London all this week meeting daily with key parties interfacing with the House of Lords and UK Agencies. Multiple agendas are in play at the highest levels. The White Hats are using the U.K. arena to commence their work due to the total control that the Dark Cabal … Bushes, Clintons, Obamas and all of their Minions … has had in the United States, including the American Main Stream Media. It is difficult to believe the Bushes have gone undetected for 50 years with a hidden agenda that is so deep they have compromised every American virtue.
Look at some of the items we are working with:
• Nominee accounts used by parties fronting for the CIA and Bush Sr. /Josef Ackermann/ Michael Herzog and Paul Guenette, are being discussed and tracked. Using the integrity of the London Capital Markets to fund unauthorized Agency and Military activities, as well as to self-enrich key Political and Government employees, is also under review and being evidenced to appropriate authorities. This week and next, as exposure mounts, more will be presented and played out.
• A vast multi-Trillion dollar fraud involving a Central Intelligence Agency owned Foundation known to us all is also under formal investigation by the British authorities with the Attorney General being kept appraised. This Foundation is bypassing Congress, but benefiting the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Homeland Security and private parties. A well-known Asian Fraudster, Wilfredo Saurin, has been allowed to gain a complicit, FRB NY supported role, protecting him from arrest as an Agent of these entities. Working in conjunction with FRB NY, Saurin and corrupt Bankers have been instrumental in assisting cross wired bogus asset backed SWIFTS, which have been used to generate MTN’s and to participate in substantial inter-bank trading. A complex arena of fraud is now being unraveled. The records are lodged with investigating authorities. The White Hats have copies of the governing documents and the chain of SWIFT sequences and the accounts used.
• As part of this very deep investigation, Edward Falcone’s case has also been raised as a further example of the criminal complicity of banks, and the extent to which the Shadow Government operates with impunity. To start, the Banks involved and the Bank auditing firms will be officially put on notice to respond to their obvious negligence in enforcing international banking regulations and money laundering laws.
The money stolen from and owed to Ed Falcone would have been used to fund United States projects including Florida, the Gulf Coast region and Katrina victims, as well as city regeneration, jobs, taxes, recovery, and dignity for Americans. Instead, Falcone’s money ended up with the Bush Cabal, U.S. Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney, Vice President Joe Biden, Michael Herzog, Paul Guenette, Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, his brother Don Nevin, and the CIA agents used to launder it across multiple banks for Bush Sr. and Biden.
The Cabal has publicly refused to acknowledge the unknown and unregulated extent of their wealth generation, the extent of their cross entanglement with the world drug cartels, their funding of clandestine operations like rendition torture centers, and self severing rogue agendas are just a few of the operations of this group.
• When will Herzog, Guenette, Dewhurst, and Nevin be arrested to start the process of Law? One morning they will all wake up to find a worldwide media firestorm has been unleashed and they are all named and shamed. It is an abhorrent betrayal of an American citizen and humanitarian projects lost to thieves. The White Hats and UK agencies have been allowed unfettered access to review the enormous depth of support documentation behind the Falcone case. London, Frankfurt, Germany and other EU based Traders are all cross linked and identified. Banks, trades, monthly profits and returns are all on record. There are criminal cases for Wire Fraud, domestic and international bank fraud, Securities Fraud and RICO for institutions and individuals. Volume after volume has been documented and evidenced. Herzog has threatened to take down Bush when he is exposed and there is enough evidence to directly incriminate both Herzog, Guenette, Dewhurst and Nevin many times over. Commerzbank in Frankfurt, Germany and Fed records are all held including the Isle of Man Banks used to hide profits and all other illicit activities. Equally exposed on record are the named Nominees they tried to hide their profits behind, including amounts the Traders used, along with all account information. One day, Mr. Herzog, Mr. Guenette, Mr. Dewhurst, and Mr. Nevins… That knock on the door is coming for you. Never thought you’d be reading this, did you? Your arrogance will be your undoing.
• Bank accounts on record with Bush Sr. and son, Jeb Bush, are counter linked as signatories. This will have a huge impact on poor Jeb’s political aspirations even though he may not have been involved in the original heist. Those co-signed accounts exist and are also part of the Falcone evidence files.
• Obama has been busy accepting funds from numerous sources and are held in his very own offshore bank accounts. This information is held by Falcone’s attorneys and the White Hats, and will be further exposed as he attempts re-election. Obama, do you not think we are going to let the American public know about your dirty, corrupted self?
• Why have Bill Bonney and the Argo Trust still not been settled? Just these two elements of the Global Settlements represent Trillions of dollars for American Projects, jobs and the elimination of the US national debt of 15 Trillion dollars.
Again, Herzog threatened he would expose Bush Sr. if he’s made to pay back what they have stolen. ARREST HERZOG AND GUINETTE, AND CLEAN UP AMERICA! Arrest Dewhurst and Nevin, and impeach Biden. Let the White Hats expose the criminal activities of Mitt Romney! How can Mitt run for President when he is responsible for hundreds of offshore bank accounts that have skirted U.S tax laws?
Americans have no idea that the Shadow Government and the Military Industrial Complex take not only 55% of all known accrued U.S. Tax income, but also works in conjunction with the co-owned Cabal Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which maintains a vast unauthorized Ponzi Pyramid Cash Machine hidden from Congress.
These groups engage in so many clandestine activities often beyond the rule of law or ethics, while our inner cities decay and collapse as crime and drugs thrive. This money feeds the Cabal, not our own people. Multi-Trillions are squandered annually paying for this Second-Tier Government, unelected and unchecked, answering only to Agency Shadow bosses like Bush Sr. and Senator Jay Rockefeller, etc.
Again, Wilfredo Saurin, a well-known Filipino crook, acting for, protected by, and in complicit conspiracy with an Agency controlled Foundation, FRB NY, and JP Morgan Chase, has implemented the release of bogus and fraudulent SWIFTS, which have been used in a trading sequence, with no Congressional knowledge or authorization, to cause the issuance of $15 Trillion dollars’ worth of MTN’s. The MTN’s are not only re-credit lined, but capital used to reverse MTN and Euro overnight spot trades via London and other EU banks. All these players work hand in glove with these crooks. This fraud inquiry is now under way.
The White Hats have access to the morally good and highly connected associates both in place and in play, right now each day, willing to help recover a good part of that money for the benefit of America and the world. We need accessible courageous US Congressmen. As we reported previously, there is a solution to regenerate The American Economy, American Jobs, and American Wealth. RELEASE THE MONEY TO REFUND THE GLOBAL SETTLEMENTS and SAVE THE WORLD!
However, we have Romney being prepared for office – A dubious man who stole Ed Falcone’s funds and pocketed a Billion for himself. We also have an illegal President with no Birth Certificate, with his hands in the pockets of Wall Street, with some very dangerous socialists and communists advisors, and America’s own fanatical version of Dr. Strangelove — conspiring and planning to get Jeb Bush elected as the next Vice President, or even President, once the pending writs are served on Romney. It looks like Romney may also face real IRS investigation soon on his false Tax Returns. We must ask the IRS — What about Romney’s offshore accounts with money he earned from the theft of the Falcone funds? Is your boss Geithner NOT letting you investigate the corruption?
The Agency Foundation and Obama tried desperately to get the 15 Trillion back from London but the banks won’t release it. Britain and America need to work together on this. WAKE UP CONGRESS! Those funds can be recovered in a deal with the United Kingdom! If you do not have the ability to step to the plate, The White Hats Do! Let us get the deal done.
Both the United Kingdom and America have been so badly screwed. America has simply become far too crooked for Justice to be accomplished here. America’s future and fate may well be playing out as these treasonous parties are exposed by Old Empires, whose own authorities are now availing themselves of the sordid facts. All records are being presented live and directed to Agency heads who are currently evaluating the hard-to-swallow evidence now placed before them. When you can’t get Justice at home, sometimes you have to get it another way. Again, at this very moment, all the facts, supporting evidence and brutal yet sordid truth, is being exposed naming and shaming those responsible for the deplorable and duplicitous conduct of our Leaders and Global Banker cohorts, including Ackermann of Deutsch and the full Commerzbank Traders and other connections.
It took many years to bring down Capone, and the Teflon Don. Focused dedication got them in the end. The spirit of Elliot Ness lives on. Because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not happening. All the evidence and facts are right now under appraisal by Foreign Enforcement Agencies who, in consultation with others, will select the route and time to unleash justice and retribution. We will not compromise sensitive incriminating evidence needed in court by pre-publishing. Just know we have it, it’s all there and it’s all playing out.
We will be in touch. Remember to keep a close eye and ear on the inner sanctums of Great Britain as the exposure is delivered to that great Sovereign body.

The Secret Behind SOPA
ACT NOW TO STOP INTERNET CENSORSHIP
STOP PIPA (Senate 968) & SOPA (HR 3261)
On Wednesday, January 18th, OpenCongress is proud to join the global online action against the "PIPA" Internet censorship bill. We're voluntarily restricting access to OpenCongress to protest PIPA (S. 968) and its House companion bill, "SOPA" (H.R. 3261) — together, the worst Internet legislation in history.
PIPA is an existential threat to our mission of public education through technology and free political speech online. The Internet is the most important innovation of our time for a truly representative democracy. PIPA establishes a dangerous legal framework for censorship of sites like OpenCongress, which brings together data about what's happening in government from a wide variety of sources.
If you value OpenCongress and the information we provide, call the D.C. offices of your U.S. senators and urge them to vote against PIPA. Find your senators' phone numbers and step-by-step calling instructions here: whip the Senate against PIPA.
PIPA is a perfect, egregious example of systemic corruption in the U.S. Congress and how corporate money directs the political process. It is vital that the public registers our opposition before the Senate rushes to vote on PIPA as soon as it returns next week, Tuesday, January 24th.
The Participatory Politics Foundation, our non-profit organization behind OpenCongress, is a founding member of the American Censorship coalition. For more information on participating sites and to join the protest, visit: SOPAstrike.com.

It looks like Greece is about to completely default and be ejected from the European Union. If the majority of the pundits' fears prove true, it will result in a domino-effect for Italy, Portugal and Spain, among a few others. As a result, the actual and psychological effect could very well cause the Stock Market to plummet, but unlike the ups & downs that normally occur, this time I see the Market falling — and keep falling. If you are invested in stocks in any way, be it a 401k or a regular stock portfolio, you could lose a lot of money that will not come back as it has in the past. The European economic disaster is going to drag the entire world economy down with it, including the U.S. and even China.
The Occupy Movement people don't really understand the exact cause of their pain, which is why in interviews, the protesters seem to be just plain angry at everything in general. Principally, they are angry because they don't have jobs waiting for them upon graduating college, instead being socked with a nasty student loan they can never file bankruptcy against — or pay off. If you ask the average Occupy protester how he or she feels about former President Bill Clinton, nine out of ten would gush praise for the man, yet it was President Clinton who in 1994 signed the free trade agreement called NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement. It was that act which set into motion all the problems facing the United States today, but because it took so long to have a felt effect on the majority of Americans, nobody remembers Ross Perot's dire and dead-on accurate warning that prime, family wage-paying jobs would leave the United States en masse. The job losses didn't sweep America right away, so Americans went about their lives not realizing NAFTA was the most destructive and treasonous act ever committed against the United States and its citizens. Just to show you how uninformed people are, the last time I saw an approval rating for former President Clinton, it was a solid 55% — far more than our current president has. That is how sadly ignorant the average American is.
Now here is where it gets interesting: Bill Clinton signed NAFTA into law against the wishes of his own Democrats! That's right, Occupy protesters, your demi-god Bill Clinton entered into an unholy alliance with corporate-lap dog congressional Republicans to set America on its path to ultimate economic destruction which just might manifest itself in a huge way this coming week beginning January 16, 2012. It was President Clinton and the Republicans who caused this flaming disaster, and nobody is writing about it except a few people like me — and Ron Paul.
What led to NAFTA was pure greed on the part of corporate America. In order to take advantage of low labor costs in other nations, the trade protections and tariffs that protected highly paid American workers from unfair foreign competition were dropped with the enactment of NAFTA. The moment those trade protections were eliminated, our large, multi-national corporations went to work building manufacturing plants in China, Mexico, Indonesia, etc. Once those manufacturing plants were complete and low-paid foreign employees hired and trained, our corporations began laying off their American labor force and closed up nearly every American manufacturing plant.
Many people blame the corporations for their greed-lust and their lack of patriotism, but that is because they never understood that corporations have but one duty under the law, and that is to provide the highest, legally earned profits for their shareholders that they can garner. Prior to the enactment of NAFTA, it was unprofitable to manufacture in foreign nations and export the products to the U.S. due to the tariffs and other trade protections that forced the retail cost of foreign-made products to be as expensive as the higher-quality American products being produced. But after NAFTA was signed into law, it would have been foolish (and arguably illegal) for any American corporate manufacturer to remain in the USA. NAFTA allowed American manufacturers to take their trade secrets and technology with them when they began manufacturing offshore, and that allowed them to produce products of the same quality as were made in the U.S. previously, but at a much lower cost. Thus, corporate profits soared, and so did the Stock Market.
The rise in the American Stock Market was misinterpreted by many to think America was just as prosperous after NAFTA as it was before NAFTA, but the profits produced were being earned in other nations instead of the U.S. In the meantime, Americans were being laid off here and there, and it was that gradual degradation of the American job market and the eventual downturn of the economy itself that escaped the attention of most Americans who blithely and ignorantly went to work every day thinking all was just as well as it had ever been. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
The enactment of NAFTA was similar to exploding a relatively small bomb inside a large dam. It created a small crack in our economy that didn't seem threatening at first, but the profits that once flowed to the United States and its people through investment and employment very gradually flowed through the NAFTA-caused cracks to benefit just about every other nation BUT the United States, and the American job losses have finally reached the point where every American knows several people who are unemployed and in dire financial straits. The negative effects of NAFTA took so long to manifest themselves (18 years) that few Americans realize today that it wasn't the housing bubble or big corporate and bank bail-outs that caused all this, but NAFTA.
You see, once people began losing jobs, they still had good credit and they still had credit cards, so it wasn't apparent to their neighbors that they were struggling. About that time, the housing bubble was beginning to brew, so many people who thought the job losses were just a hick-up that would pass began supplementing their income needs by filling up their credit cards and making very dangerous investments flipping houses, often refinancing the homes they lived in to the max so they had the cash to flip homes. But when the housing bubble burst, those same people were left holding real estate they couldn't flip, and because they had refinanced all the equity from their residential homes to come up with the down-payment cash on those shoddy, dangerous investments, they lost not only the homes they hoped to flip, but their own homes as well.
Next, here comes the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Government to bail out most of the banks and investment houses who faced complete financial annihilation because they were left holding all the properties being abandoned by the former individual investor/flippers to foreclosure. With high unemployment easily topping 20% in real life terms and a housing market flooded with foreclosed homes offered at ever dropping prices, the "regular" housing market prices are being depressed to compete for a dwindling number of qualified home buyers.
All this, every bit of it, stems from the enactment of NAFTA in 1994, and the water has been slipping through the cracks ever since, but at a faster and faster flow until we have finally reached the point most people only now realize the damage it caused. NAFTA started the whole thing. NAFTA gutted the United States of America, cost millions of jobs and the only beneficiaries of NAFTA were and are the multinational corporations, most of which were born and bred right here in the good ol' USA.
The powers that put NAFTA into motion are the same powers that are committed to seeing Mitt Romney succeed as the Republican nominee, because Romney is a big corporate guy and they know they can control Romney. Barack Obama has received millions of dollars in campaign contributions from multi-national corporations domiciled in the United States for exactly the same reasons. Both Obama and Romney are playing along with Wall Street, so the powers that be will be happy if either one wins. Ron Paul, however, scares Wall Street to death, and for very understandable reasons.
Ron Paul will stop all this nonsense in its tracks, IF he gets elected. There is a lot of money riding on this election because the very few wealthy 1% or whatever they want to be called, got that massive wealth as a direct result of the implementation of NAFTA, and they would like that trend to continue no matter what happens to the rest of the 99% left floundering in America.
If they only knew the truth, every Occupy Movement sympathizer would realize Ron Paul is the only candidate they NEED to vote for, regardless of who they think they want to vote for. Romney is prettier, so a lot of women will vote for him on that basis alone. Obama claims to be the champion of the Middle Class, and he's fooled a lot of liberals to support him at the same time he's accepting fat campaign checks from the same corporations the Occupy people want to burn down, yet the Occupy people largely support Obama anyway. No wonder they aren't getting any respect.
I just sent Ron Paul a check for $200.00. I hope he buys a decent bullet-proof vest with it, because I think he might need it.

Local governments consolidating into one merged power hub
by Walter Burien – CAFR1
I noticed this first per Massachusetts. The State consolidated control and ownership of all counties in the state by merger of all counties into the State. This happened over a decade ago in Massachusetts.
The 'kicker" in addition to merger of the counties the "State" before this was done the "State" changed their government status from the "State" government of Massachusetts to the "Commonwealth" of Massachusetts. This transition was implemented by the "State" prior to 1995.
The big point here is that: "Private Associations" were used over the last 75-years to transition local governments from what we use to know government as into "Corporate" for profit enterprises and did so by direct consult over the years.
The structure of the "Commonwealth" of Massachusetts over the "State" government of Massachusetts, at the stroke of the pen overseen and checked off on by key player "Attorneys", implemented the transition from a "government" entity into what could be more closely considered a "Private Association".
The implications here are grave specifically as would apply to the transfer and masking of public wealth. The People own government, they do not own private associations. The same would apply to wealth transferred from "State" holdings transitioned into the "Private Association" holdings of the "Commonwealth" of Massachusetts..
Leave the liabilities under the "State" government shell and transfer the wealth holdings to and under the "Commonwealth" association.
This was done right under the noses of the Massachusetts residents and done without a clue given that it was being done to the Peoples of Massachusetts. The same is covertly taking place in NJ, PA, CT, and many other states.
The shell structure of government is being left in place as the wealth and stewardship responsibilities are transferred to the Private Association, or as in Massachusetts case when transitioned from the "State" government of Massachusetts into the "Commonwealth" of Massachusetts.
When this transition took place about two decade ago, Massachusetts no longer produced a "State" government CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Report). The CAFR was now produced under the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The State Court System and Financial operations were also transitioned into and under the same "Commonwealth" structure.
Mit Romney is the Presidential pick to be promoted by the syndicate being the prior governor of Massachusetts. He is versed on operating procedure to implement the same nationally. That will be his primary mission if elected President and thus the Syndicate is moving forward full steam utilizing all of their contacts and tactics to force Mitt Romney's win as President.
I note Barack Obama as an attorney and current President is attempting to consolidate through restructuring federal government into the same transition.
This communication needs to go viral in all circles. Let all comprehend what is taking place right in their face and under their noses.
For government to be: "For the People by the People" this transition needs to be stopped cold in its tracks and reversed. It is well under way and if the roots of its structure hold it will no longer be: "For the People by the People" but For the Association by the Association" under the direction of the association's minions of attorneys direction.
As quoted from the front page of CAFR1.com as the bottom line at the end of the page:
"It appears that many attorneys have now taken over the House, Senate, and Governor's office. The separation of powers doctrine mandates attorneys being officers of the court (Judicial branch) that they should not be able to run for public office (Executive / Administrative branch)
Stop this now!
The ROOT of the corruption / graft / destruction of our country is coming from this breeding grounds. Here is why you are being bled dry! The very corrupt from the judicial branch have slithered their way into elected and appointed positions within the executive / administrative areas of government.
Again, it is the nature of this beast to bleed you dry, if they can that is..
If you from this point forward VOTE for an attorney running for office, you are more than foolish, you aid in the assured degradation and plunder of your own country.
Remove these attorneys from public office NOW! Mandate a ten year lapse from being an officer of the court BEFORE an attorney can run for public office and ten years after leaving office. This is a must to do NOW. It is NOT an option. Make this the LAW NOW in your City, County, and State. You now know why you are being bled dry. It is the NATURE of this beast.
THEY SAY THIS IS A COUNTRY OF LAWS, WELL, WHEN THE LAW ITSELF IS LAWLESS BY APPLICATION AND WHEN THE INTENT OF THE LAW IS FOR EXTORTION OF WEALTH OR REPRISAL OVER PROTECTION OF THE PEOPLE, THEN THE LETTER OF THE LAW ITSELF BECOMES MUTE AND THE APPLICATION THEREOF A CRIME IN ITSELF TO BE REPUDIATED.
Per understanding CAFRs, people have been intentionally kept in the dark so long they forget the basics:
1. A "Budget Report" is a selective funding of x accounts from x resources (set up to be primarily funded with taxation and done so "for the year")
2. An "Annual Financial Report" is the showing of "all" income: Investment; taxation; and Enterprise, plus the "accumulated wealth over decades. Budgets are for the year, an AFR is for it all since creation of the entity.
There is a big difference between the two. A correct analogy would be: The budget to operate your house vs. your statement of net worth.
The public has been played with the biggest shell game of selective presentation there is allowing for massive fortunes to be made by the inside players over the last several decades..
Every investment fund large and small is a power base. Where that money is invested determines what company; real-estate venture, etc., is made or broken. Thus in line with that, never a mention of the 184,000 AFRs of the corresponding local governments..nor the many thousands of specialty investment funds they contain. I note gov pension funds facilitate the same. Paying employee benefits from the return on the funds is an after thought for the government players.
The head communists back in the 30's and 40's said they could take over America without firming a shot. The undercurrents of that statement were that they could depend on the greed and opportunity of the players to accomplish that goal and it did. US Collective government since 2000 brings in more gross income than the entire gross income of the population of the United States.
Taxation is rammed down the public's throat (1/3rd of the gross income) and Investment / Enterprise income (2/3rd of the gross income) the "silence is golden" rule is strictly enforced with the full symbiotic cooperation of the syndicated media; controlled education; and both political parties as applies over the last century.

HARD TO SWALLOW, BUT TRUE
Congress critters (1) do not write bills, (2) do not read bills, (3) and do not listen to constituents who do not put lots of money into their campaign coffers. Their ONLY objective is to get re-elected, which guarantees their Pension FOR LIFE, which kicks in after 6 years of service. The Caucus leaders tell them which bills to promote, and they control who gets reelected.
BOTTOMLINE: "Representation" by congress is a false concept and does not exist. End the fairytale in your mind.

By Dr. Adrian Krieg
Being over 70 years old and having lived through WWII in Europe and lived in Mexico, I have an excellent understanding of what dictatorships are and how they function. The fact that America is rapidly heading into a despotic state is obvious to anyone of my age. Furthermore, every branch of our government is involved. The Supreme Court recently ruled that the charge of 'assistance to terrorism' does not necessitate an overt act; all that is required is providing assistance and/or encouragement to the act. That in effect means anything, for instance, calling the executive a fool, writing a pro-Palestinian article, objecting to Israeli Middle East policies, holocaust denial – anything the bureaucracy disapproves of becomes a violation of this law.
Under the newly enacted – sponsored by McCain (R-AZ) with approval of 93 (STUPID) Senators – National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the president was granted the right to arrest and detain any American citizens any place in the world without a charge, indefinitely, without right to council, without a warrant, and to torture any such American, merely on his say-so or by indictment of a secret court whose members are anonymous. This totally obliterates the habeas corpus provisions of the Constitution. Furthermore, this law eradicates the Posse Comitatus Act [18 U.S.C. 1385] of June 18, 1887 that prevented the government from employing American military against American civilians.
The president already took upon himself the right to assassinate any American citizen any place in the world without charge, trial, judge, jury and evidence of a crime, simply on his say-so, and has already used that authority to murder.
The enacted in 2001 and re-approved in 2011 USA Patriot Act is the most sinister of all, in that it violates the first, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth amendments of the Bill of Rights. In expansion, it grants the government the right to rifle your mail, tap your telephone and inquire into what you are reading. In a stunning overturn of well-accepted fourth amendment rights a federal court has granted government the right to track your movement with GPS technology, including via cell phones and GPS equipment.
Meanwhile, your local police force is buying everything from spy drones to night vision equipment and are being militarized hand over fist. These weapons and systems that local police are purchasing are not for law enforcement; they are decidedly for issues like crowd control, nighttime secret incursions, combined actions with the National Guard and regular Army, which is now possible due to NDAA. Worse is the fact that numerous airports and facilities around America have had their security services subcontracted to Israeli security firms. While the government contracts training to SPLC for federal agencies and smaller local state agencies follow their lead, SPLC is the most bias-twisted, anti-Christian organization in the land. The federal government has established links with the JDL, Mossad assets, the American Jewish Congress, the ADL and other Israeli operatives; while we cannot prove this we know it to be the case. The story put forth by the Mossad that everyone in government now accepts as gospel is that Israeli and American security issues are one and the same. This, upon examination of issues, is utterly ridiculous.
Lest we forget, police are supposed to serve and protect while military kill and destroy. The two functions are wholly incompatible in a republic. I saw this firsthand in Germany from 1938 onward and in Italy, and in Bulgaria and then in the entire Soviet bloc empire.
In view of the Pollard, Franklin, Rosenberg and scores of Israeli spying operations against us and considering theUSS Liberty affair, we would be wise to rely on our own security apparatus and not become entangled with the agencies of a nation which has for decades been most actively spying against us.
We are already underwater with Israeli telephone monitoring and billing operations that have been off-shored by domestic suppliers to Magal Security Systems, an Israeli contractor. Let's be cognizant of the fact that, according to information released last December, there is now operative monitoring of all electronic communications as well as GPS systems. We do not think it rational to allow such information to be subcontracted offshore.
What we are pointing out here is that all the required means for the operation of a top-down police state are either already in place or are being put in place as you read. Even the agencies to administer all this from the federal level, Homeland Security – with over 220,000 employees – is a functioning agency run by one of Obama's dubious associates.
Beginning with 9/11 – a false-flag operation if ever there was one – the nation has lost one liberty after another, and now we have even lost our most basic right to face our accuser, habeas corpus, that has been part of English speaking law since the 12th century. The president, meanwhile, has taken to himself the right to use our own military against its citizens by voiding Posse Comitatus – enacted in 1887 after the war of northern aggression to alleviate the excesses of the Yankees as they had looted, raped and burned their way from Richmond to Atlanta – and the elimination of almost the entire Bill of Rights through the enactment of the USA Patriot Act, which had essentially been written and ready for enactment for over 15 years before 9/11.
What would it take to instill in a mentally challenged population the willingness to have stripped away what little of our freedoms still exist? A little pre-arranged action to be blamed on Iran would make the neocons very happy, the president could be re-elected, the population induced to war against yet another Middle East nation, then the expansion of more freedom crushing laws, the enactment of national hate laws with the government providing the definition of hate, and there you have it – Soviet America Empire of the 21st century.
There is one remaining way to stop this usurpation by our government and it is easy to do. Just support the CSPOA at http://www.cspoa.org/ and get our county Sheriff’s re-educated. Not even the President of the United State’s can rebuke him.
Your County Sheriff is elected by the people and we can demand they participate.

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”– Henry David Thoreau
Have you ever noticed how vehemently people react when you question something they believe in instead of ever being able to have an intelligent discussion with him or her? In the below video, Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer Prize winning American journalist, author, and war correspondent, nails the reason that explains why it is so difficult to change a person’s mind when they are committed to believing something even when they are confronted with a mountain of evidence that points to the contrary. Chris states that universities have stripped away humanities and other courses that develop critical thinking skills and instead, due to the historical influences of men like Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller, focus on teaching young men and women “what to think” instead of “how to think.”
Like the proverb that states we have two ears and only one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk, when we are confronted with actually having our views challenged, many among us fail to listen, fail to analyze, fail to think, and we instead immediately open our mouths in defense without ever seriously considering the contrary information, often in factual form, that has been presented to us. All of us, including yours truly, have been guilty of responding insensitively and unintelligently in this manner, and I believe that there is a reason for this type of response. The powers that be have used education against us by employing teaching methods within institutional academia that condition us to automatically dismiss any notion that might conflict with our internal belief systems that THEY have programmed into us. If you believe that this notion is far-fetched, consider that from 1900 to 1920, at a time when the direction of American education was very much still being molded, Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller incredibly spent more money than the entire US government in funding and building the education system to meet their specifications and wishes.
Have you ever thought about why repetition, an integral construct in the effectiveness of brainwashing, is also an integral construct in most institutions of academia in every country of the world? Could education institutions possibly be serving as re-education camps? Should not true learning involve students questioning professors, students questioning students, and professors questioning students not just to repeat and regurgitate pre-packaged responses as is so often the case, but also to critically analyze and to defend one’s positions and arguments? The Powers That Be (TPTB) that attend the Bilderberg conference must secretly smile and laugh behind closed doors at the “unthinking” nature that they have been able to instill within us. Refuse to accept something as fact just because an authority figure, whether a professor, the Vatican, or politician, told you to believe it, and automatically many amongst the sheep will accuse one of pandering to conspiracy theories, even when one can present many facts that support one’s opposition view much more strongly than the widely accepted view.
Because universities are so focused on teaching us “what to think” instead of “how to think”, this dumbing down process has produced many media figures and talk show hosts that respond to any questioning of their beliefs with censorship, an attempt to talk over opposition views, or with infantile ad hominem attacks, no matter how cogent and eloquently expressed the opposition view may be. When I lived in Japan, I learned of a Japanese proverb that states, “The nail that sticks out gets hammered down”, as if uniqueness and individuality were undesirable traits. Perhaps this may be the case as the status quo views us, their subjects, but certainly humanity should strive to achieve creativity and foster critical thought in order to establish a more moral society and to root out corruption.
Furthermore, the deliberate destruction of curricula in institutional academia that fosters critical thinking skills has given way to “hero” worship and learned helplessness instead of self-determination and self-reliance. Again, the status quo delights in the hero culture we have built today. Hero worship leaves one longing for salvation to come on the back of some mythical status without any commitment or accountability from the masses. The status quo delights in the hero culture we have built today. Hero worship leaves one longing for salvation to come on the back of some mythical hero without any commitment or accountability from the masses. The status quo delight in the hero culture that they have built in the minds of the masses as they know that longing for salvation to come from someone else will leave people in a state of learned helplessness-induced inertia and thus create an effective barrier from the manifestation of a “peasant” revolt.
Have you ever noticed how often someone will defend every fault of their country’s President, a huge pop star, or a star athlete as passionately as they would defend their own family if you should dare criticize their “hero” figure? From a logical standpoint, such defenses are the definition of irrational, as no one can truly know anything substantial or substantive about the character or true nature of a public figure with whom they have not spent a single hour. But yet people very frequently subscribe to the absolutely absurd belief that they know the character of their “hero” intimately and will defend this person’s honor (or dishonor as it may be in many cases) to the end of time. In closing, in addition to Chris Hedge’s video, I will leave you with a video I posted nearly a year-and-a-half ago in which I discuss ex-KGB Yuri Bezmenov’s discourse on ideological subversion and how such tactics can produce sheeple that will invariably obey and believe what they are told. Hopefully this will help us identify the ideological subversive tactics that are being deployed against us today all over the world and help all of us to transform into more open-minded people willing to consider alternate viewpoints other than the ones that “the powers that be” commanded us to embrace.

A Tribute to Joe who just turned 80
Date: Mon, 9 Jan 2012 14:29:20 -0600
A tribute to a Celtic Warrior written by another of the dying breed of Celtic Warriors, Sgt. Major Mike Gaddy (Ret) & Constitutionalist Extraordinaire.
These are indeed times that try men’s souls and if not for the Bravehearts we would all be in literal chains long agobut a few cannot stem the tsunami of collectivist tyranny sweeping the world.
Treasure the Liberty Warriors & Defenders of Western Civilization while we have them for it is quite possible they will not come again. Pity the young who may never know true liberty.

WHAT IS A CONSERVATIVE?
For most of my adult life, I have heard people refer to themselves as “conservative.” I’ve had a real hard time reconciling in my mind what that actually means. Some folks I’ve known who considered themselves
conservatives were nothing but political whores; hiding behind some professed idealism in order to feather their own nest using whatever political connections they could establish to exploit their fellow man. Others who preach right wing fanaticism are nothing less than born again Fascists; all they are lacking is the funny little moustache. War is the answer; forget the question. Then there were the liberals who saw a swing of political power to the right during the Reagan years and used it to bring tenets of the welfare/warfare state to the political right, masquerading as compassionate conservatism.
Standing in front of the Trading Post in Palominas Arizona several years ago, I met a true conservative; a man who practices real conservatism every day of his life. Joe is an American from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet. He cares deeply about America, freedom and liberty.
Joe sees being a conservative as a way of life, not a political persuasion. He stands firm in defense of freedom and sees that to preserve freedom government must always be minimized. He understands the natural laws mentioned by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence and that those laws existed long before the very idea of government. He also understands these rights do not depend on government for their moral authority. He understands that a true conservative takes responsibility for his own life and that means some folks will succeed while others fail and the great majority just muddle by. He knows that cosmic justice or social justice does not exist on the human plane and that any effort by government to implement either is simply government attempting to become a deity, taking from those who produce to give to those who believe they are entitled to that which belongs to others.
He knows that men are essentially selfish creatures and given half a chance will threaten the freedom of others. He understands the only valid function of government is to protect the rights of all, not take from some to idealistically level the playing field. To do otherwise is to violate the reason for the very existence of government.
He understands a true conservative sees no legitimate reason to take the freedom of anyone who operates within the concept of the rule of law, especially under some delusional belief that security can be guaranteed by doing so .He understands that man does not control the laws of the universe and that security is nothing but an illusion and cannot be purchased with money or freedom.
Joe understands the base instincts of those who actively seek dominion and control over the lives and property of others. He knows they very seldom, if ever, have the morals and integrity to avoid the temptation to enrich themselves at the expense of others. They are just not wired that way. He knows when you place a weasel in a hen house; the weasel will do what weasels do: it will eat chickens. Joe also knows the lesser of two weasels will only eat fewer chickens until it perfects its skills or learns from bigger weasels how to eat all the chickens it can. Joe knows the person who would best serve the interests of others is the person who would be most reluctant to involve themselves in the process because they only desire to be left alone to succeed or fail on their own.
Joe wears the scars of criticism from the socialist left as a badge of honor. His efforts towards individual freedom and a government that operates within its intended purpose draws the slings, arrows, lies and slurs of Marxist Socialists everywhere in our society. The lesson Joe provides for all who are engaged in the battle for liberty is: if you are not the victim of verbal assaults, character assassinations and outright lies, you aren’t fighting hard enough.
Was Joe born to fight these battles? There is considerable evidence which indicates he was. A true “Son of the South,” Joe inherited the unbridled love of liberty of Jefferson; the personal character of Lee; the boldness of Jackson and the tenacity of Forrest.
Possibly Joe’s greatest attribute is: he is so focused on his goals for this country, he does not see in himself the characteristics mentioned above. Joe loves this country and his native South with a passion most will never understand. He sees them both as deserving of loyalty and dedication, not instruments to use for his own enrichment and glory.
General George S. Patton is said to have commented that with a company of Citadel grads he could win a battle and with a division of VMI grads he could win a war. If we had a hundred men like Joe, we could turn this country around.
“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.”~Patrick Henry

Recently I have had a new friend display a truculent attitude toward libertarianism, and rightly so, however within libertarian philosophy there is a lot of great ideas, and all one has to do is eat the meat and make weapons out of the bones. I have been publishing articles from the Daily Bell, and intend to publish more of them so as to provide the broadest source of political ideology as possible, with the confidence that my readers will be able to recognize the meat and the bones, which will educate the reader on ideas that our education should have covered. Considering the present condition of our Nation, there will no doubt be an economic crash that will devastate the majority of our politically obtuse citizens and out of necessity they will reserve their leisure time to study and help rebuild America with a Constitution with teeth that clearly sets forth the peoples ability to hold their representatives responsible for the preservation of said Constitution. Americans are going to be forced to learn about different political philosophy, and how to take the best ideas from them to construct a totally new system of governance, and economic control. Only the power of words can save us from the power of our depraved nature.

US 'turns the page on a decade of war' … The United States is "turning the page on a decade of war", President Barack Obama said, as he unveiled a major strategic review that will cut $489 billion in defence spending over the next ten years … As the wars of the September 11 era pass, Mr Obama said America should abandon its traditional capability of fighting two major wars at once and focus on becoming a "leaner and smarter" fighting force with an emphasis on counter terrorism, reconnaissance, cyber warfare and maintaining a nuclear deterrent. In a rare appearance in the Pentagon press briefing room, Mr Obama however insisted that the US military would comfortably maintain its military supremacy, with proposed spending still larger than that of the next 10 countries combined. – UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: We've changed. We're gonna be more powerful but more gentle, too. We're going to emphasize the efficiency of killing rather than its scope.
Free-Market Analysis: The Obama administration has announced a new page in a decade of war. But is this really the case? We would argue that this downsizing is noteworthy because it acknowledges that the pretense of using "citizen armies" to realize the New World Order is actually drawing to a close.
What Obama is enunciating is nothing more than a dominant social theme, in our view. The idea is to indicate to the West and to America in particular that the country's war-fervor is abating. The US will continue to be triumphantly powerful but it won't be so brash or quite so destructive.
But really nothing much has changed in terms of power elite goals. What IS changing is the way force is going to be distributed and applied.
There is going to be a transition to a more secretive military methodology, in our view. It's already happening. The powers-that-be will seek to advance their agenda via mercenaries and intelligence agencies and to fund these activities via drug dealing and various other black ops.
Is there any other choice? The Anglosphere power elite that seeks to run the world cannot likely wean itself from its military methodologies. Its command-and-control agenda rests on the threat of violence and increasingly on its actuation.
Western economies are seemingly almost entirely in the thrall of this elite. Using the wealth of central banking, it has over time created a worldwide economy that is driven by war and directed by a few select, titanic corporations that are basically the handmaidens of Washington DC and the City of London.
It would seem to be the most successful, hidden dictatorship in the history of humankind. The secrecy – especially in the 20th century – allowed the entire world to be steered in a certain direction, toward world government. This strategy is still in effect even though it has been blown open by the Internet and the increasingly powerful "Reformation" that it is causing.
What we call the Internet Reformation is evidently and obviously shaking the power elite. This powerful entity has thus been increasingly forced to show its hand in numerous ways, both legislative and military. We have come to call it "directed history." The goal is global governance and events are "arranged" to facilitate it.
Throughout the 20th century, the "globalization" trends expanded. The state was to be celebrated in all ways. What was independent and inchoate was to be made dependent and ritualized. What was art was depersonalized in order to celebrate the efficacy of the state, as was architecture. Psychology was introduced to increase the efficiency of manipulations of the middle class. Money was drained of value and increasingly controlled behind the scenes by forces bent on inflation and currency debasement.
The continuance of this mad system is brought forth despite an increasingly generalized understanding of its manifestations. Over the past 300 years, with increasing energy and efficacy, a deliberate and calculated reign has been put into place that seemingly purposefully embraces everything that is most dysfunctional and destructive about human society.
Human beings are surely complex animals, in our view, with an incredibly broad spectrum of traits. When these traits are exercised privately, no overall harm is done. But when a tiny group of elites manage to gain control of the world's money supply (as has apparently occurred) and then begin to use the power of government force to deliberately implement their agenda, large-scale disasters are surely in the offing.
In the 20th century, perhaps 150 million people died directly as the result of elite war and its directed history. The 21st century was to see the further perfection of this system of war, corporatism, looting and bloodshed. Here's some more from the article:
The cuts would represent less than 10 per cent of the current annual defence budget of $650 billion. In one of the most significant strategy shifts since the end of the Second World War, the review US will turn its focus away from Europe towards the Asian Pacific region to counter the rising influence of China.
"Our military will be leaner but the world must know the United States is going to maintain our military superiority with armed forces that are agile, flexible and ready for the full range of contingencies and threats," [Obama] said at a news conference at the Pentagon flanked by Leon Panetta, the US defence secretary, and senior generals.
"Even as our troops continue to fight in Afghanistan, the tide of war is receding," he said. "Even as our forces prevail in today's missions, we have the opportunity – and the responsibility – to look ahead to the force we need for the future. Our nation is at a moment of transition."
The defence budget since the September 11 attacks on the US had grown at an "extraordinary pace" which had to slow down, he said, given the soaring budget deficits the world's superpower is facing thanks to the recession and the cost of its ageing population. "We have to renew our economic strength here at home, which is the foundation of our strength in the world. That includes putting our fiscal house in order," the president said.
We don't believe any of this. We have learned in a decade of covering such reports that government officials usually say exactly the opposite of what they mean. The Anglosphere elite cannot afford to give up its corporate/military mechanism of control.
In fact, one could make an argument that what we consider to be a deliberately introduced financial crisis has resulted in the purposeful expansion of NATO to make it into a true fighting force worldwide. Couple NATO with the mercenary expansions of outfits such as those run by the infamous Erik Prince and the steady emergence of shadowy black ops run out the City of London, Washington DC and Tel Aviv and you begin to see an entirely new militaristic paradigm.
What is interesting, we would argue, is that this configuration increasingly resembles that of ancient Rome. When the empire was weakening due to financial mismanagement and corruption, the use of mercenaries and professional soldiers greatly expanded. It didn't work, however, in the long run because people need to be motivated by a belief structure in order to be willing to fight and lay down their lives.
Absent this belief structure, defeats mount up and victories are increasingly hard to come by. This explains the failures of the West in Afghanistan and Pakistan and probably in Yemen and Somalia as well.
Conclusion: Here is the puzzle: The closer the elites draw to the New World Older, the less effective their mechanisms of control may prove.

The Doctrine of Signatures is profound ancient wisdom that is purposely being suppressed. It states that every fruit and vegetable has a certain pattern that resembles a body organ, and that this pattern acts as a signal or sign as to that fruit or vegetable’s benefit to us.
Modern science confirms that the ancient “Doctrine of Signatures” is astoundingly accurate. Why does this vital knowledge remain hidden?
The healing and nourishing properties of any fruit or vegetable reflected in, and ultimately revealed by, that fruit or vegetables’ outer physical shape, form, or “signature” in relation to the human body.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function—and they look exactly like human kidneys.
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop brain function.
The cross section of a Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye. And science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to the eyes and aid in the general function of the eyes.
Celery looks just like bones. Celery specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23 percent sodium and these foods are 23 percent sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. Foods like celery replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocadoes target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female—they look just like these organs. Avocadoes help women balance hormones, shed unwanted birth weight, and deter cervical cancers. It takes exactly nine months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit.
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Slice a Mushroom in half and it resembles a human ear. Mushrooms have been found to improve hearing, as mushrooms are one of the few foods that contain vitamin D. This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.
Our lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli. These structures, which resemble bunches of Grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream. A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema. Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.
Ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just like the stomach. So its interesting that one of its biggest benefits is aiding digestion. The Chinese have been using it for over 2,000 years to calm the stomach and cure nausea, while it is also a popular remedy for motion sickness.
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics. Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.
The Doctrine of Signatures may sound strange to us, but its wisdom is ancient, rediscovered in modern times. Of course, in modern America we’ve been taught by the big corporations to buy “processed foods,” rather than to buy local fresh vegetables and cook them ourselves.
Americans have no time for cooking; most are busy working and consuming en masse, according to the messages drilled in by television, radio, newspaper, the news, culture, society. The resultant omnipresence of cheap, high-calorie, nutrient-poor processed foods (or “food like substances”) in homes, schools, government institutions and food programs, and on every street corner creates default food choices that drive obesity.
These subsidized, cheap, low-quality foods are heavily marketed and consumed by our ever-widening population with an obesity rate approaching three out of four Americans. The more Americans eat, the fatter they become. And the fatter they become the more they develop heart disease, diabetes, cancer and a myriad of other chronic ailments. This is a big score for big pharma. The sicker our population becomes, the more medications are sold for high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and many other lifestyle driven diseases. In essence, big food and big pharma profits by creating a nation of sick and fat citizens.
This structure is built into the very fabric of our economy and culture. It could be called the medical, agricultural, food industrial complex. It is nothing short of sheer violence against us—the social, political, economic and environmental conditions that foster and promote the development of disease. However, by using this wisdom of the Doctrine of Signatures we can take more of a proactive role regarding our health. We are our best own doctor and dietician, we just need to believe it.
The Doctrine of Signatures was made popular in modern times by a Swiss physician, alchemist and philosopher named Paracelsus (1493-1541) who scholars consider to be the father of modern chemistry. Paracelsus noted how the qualities of plants are often reflected in their appearance. He thus theorized that the inner nature of plants may be discovered by their outer forms or “signatures.” He applied this principle to food as well as medicine, remarking that “it is not in the quantity of food but in its quality that resides the Spirit of Life”—a belief familiar to those who choose to eat organic food while also being justifiably concerned over Genetically Modified substitutes that lack the “life force,” or spirit.
The “Doctrine of Signatures” enjoyed a revival in the 1600s after Jakob Böhme (1575-1624), a master shoemaker in the small town of Görlitz, Germany, began writing on the subject. At 25 years old, he experienced a sublime mystical vision where he saw the true relationship between man and his Creator—that man is both the Creator and the Created.

Brent crude spot prices rise from $107 to $111 after Tehran threatens US aircraft carrier over use of crucial shipping route

The price of oil jumped by $4 a barrel on Tuesday as tension betweenIran and the US fuelled fears of disruptions to supply.
Brent crude spot prices rose from $107 to $111 after Iran threatened to take action if the US navy moves an aircraft carrier into the Gulf.
US light crude, which dropped below $100 a barrel before Christmas, hit $102.23 a barrel – a rise of $3.40 on the day.
Analysts said the jump in prices was likely to continue as long as Tehran appeared ready to use force against US warships patrolling the strategically vital strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Gulf.
Iran's army chief, General Ataollah Salehi, warned a US aircraft carrier not to return to the Gulf or risk attack by new surface-to-sea missiles tested by the military in recent days.
Tehran's latest tough rhetoric over the waterway is part of a feud with the US over new sanctions designed to discourage the Iranian state from developing nuclear weapons.
Salehi spoke as a 10-day Iranian naval exercise ended near the strait of Hormuz. Iranian officials have said the drill aimed to show that Iran could close the shipping route, as it has threatened to do if the US brings into force strong new sanctions over Iran's nuclear program.
The strait, leading into the Gulf of Oman and Arabian Sea, is the only possible route for tankers transporting crude from the oil-rich states of the Gulf to western markets. A sixth of the world's oil exports passes through it every day.
John Kilduff, a partner at the hedge fund Again Capital in New York, said better-than-expected manufacturing output by US firms, which is likely to boost the demand for oil, was also a factor in the oil price rise.
"The supportive economic data and the geopolitical concerns are furthering the crude oil rally," he said.
"The temperature is going up every day now on the Iran situation – new sanctions, new missile launches and saber-rattling are all contributing," he added.
Oil prices have been trending downwards since last May, when it became apparent the recovery in Europe and the US was running out of steam. The euro crisis, which re-ignited in July, pushed prices down further. Brent crude peaked at $126 last May before falling by a fifth to $100 in October.
Salehi's warning to the US aircraft carrier USS John C Stennis not to come back seemed as if it was designed to further declare the strait and the Gulf as being under Iranian control, though there is little way for Tehran to enforce the warning without military action. The strait is divided between Iran and Oman's territorial waters, and international law requires them to allow free passage through it.
"We recommend to the American warship that passed through the strait of Hormuz and went to the Gulf of Oman not to return to the Persian Gulf," the general was quoted as saying by the state news agency, IRNA.
He said Iran's enemies had understood the message of the naval exercises, saying: "We have no plan to begin any irrational act but we are ready against any threat."

What Ron Paul Thinks of America … It seemed improbable that the best-known American propagandist for our enemies could be near the top of the pack in the Iowa contest, but there it is. Ron Paul’s supporters are sure of one thing: Their candidate has always been consistent—a point Dr. Paul himself has been making with increasing frequency. It’s a thought that comes up with a certain inevitability now in those roundtables on the Republican field. One cable commentator genially instructed us last Friday, “You have to give Paul credit for sticking to his beliefs.” He was speaking, it’s hardly necessary to say, of a man who holds some noteworthy views in a candidate for the presidency of the United States. One who is the best-known of our homegrown propagandists for our chief enemies in the world. One who has made himself a leading spokesman for, and recycler of, the long and familiar litany of charges that point to the United States as a leading agent of evil and injustice, the militarist victimizer of millions who want only to live in peace. – WSJournal
Dominant Social Theme: Ron Paul’s rhetoric is increasingly verging on the treasonous.
Free-Market Analysis: To us, this is a very disturbing article (see excerpt above). We have long admired Ms. Rabinowitz for her unrelenting reporting of phony child-abuse incarcerations throughout the United States back in the 1980s. For a while, rogue prosecutors were putting innocent people in jail based on the testimony of three-year-olds and Rabinowitz’s high-profile reporting put a stop to some of the worst abuses.
She emerged from those reportorial episodes covered in glory and deservedly so. But what has she done now, especially with this article, to confuse her myriad supporters who once admired her bravery and clarity? Why does she come close – closer than any other major journalist in our view – to calling this gentle man, Ron Paul (left), a traitor?
As usual, it seems Dr. Paul’s anti military-empire rhetoric draws the most ire. A prominent public person can almost guarantee attacks if he or she begins to criticize America’s military-industrial complex. Especially if that person is perhaps a heartbeat away from winning the Republican nomination for the upcoming presidential election.
And thus it is. As Dr. Paul has experienced more success, he has come under withering fire. He has been attacked as a racist for material in some 25-year-old newsletters he neither wrote nor read and now, apparently, in Ms. Rabinowitz’s eyes, he is verging on the traitorous. Here’s some more from her article:
Hear Dr. Paul on the subject of the 9/11 terror attacks—an event, he assures his audiences, that took place only because of U.S. aggression and military actions. True, we’ve heard the assertions before. But rarely have we heard in any American political figure such exclusive concern for, and appreciation of, the motives of those who attacked us—and so resounding a silence about the suffering of those thousands that the perpetrators of 9/11 set out so deliberately to kill …
There can be no confusions about Dr. Paul’s own comments about the U.S. After 9/11, he said to students in Iowa, there was “glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq.” It takes a profoundly envenomed mindset—one also deeply at odds with reality—to believe and to say publicly that the administration of this nation brought so low with grief and loss after the attack had reacted with glee.
There are, to be sure, a number of like-minded citizens around (see the 9/11 Truthers, whose opinions Dr. Paul has said he doesn’t share). But we don’t expect to find their views in people running for the nation’s highest office.
This is astonishing rhetoric. Unpack it a bit (including our initial excerpt). “[His] silence about the suffering of those thousands that the perpetrators of 9/11 set out so deliberately to kill” … “Profoundly envenomed mindset” … “It seemed improbable that the best-known of American propagandists for our enemies could be near the top of the pack in the Iowa contest.” …
It is in this last statement that Ms. Rabinowitz seems to come closest to accusing Ron Paul of outright treason. In a prime editorial slot at one of the world’s most prestigious newspapers, a member of the board (her) calls a top US presidential candidate one of the “best-known propagandists for our enemies.”
Is this a deliberate warning shot across the bow of Dr. Paul’s increasingly successful campaign? It comes at a time when the Congress has passed a new “National Defense Authorization Act” (NDAA) that further empowers the executive branch to lock up US citizens for life at Guantanamo Bay or other military prisons – without charge and without trial.
Here’s some language within the recently passed final NDAA text: “Section 1021: Authority of the Armed Forces to Detain Covered Persons… Congress affirms that the authority of the President … includes the authority for the Armed Forces … to detain covered persons,” which includes “a person who was a part of or substantially supportedal-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act …” and may detained “under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”
Ms. Rabinowitz states that Ron Paul is one of the US’s “best known propagandists for our enemies.” Now read her statement above in context of the NDAA language, where it is stated that someone may be subject to indefinite military detention if they are deemed a “covered person,” solely at the president’s discretion.
Pretty broad, eh (“committed a belligerent act”)? As we pointed out in an article entitled “NDAA, Smell of Fear,” those passing this legislation know full well what the ramifications are. It is fear, in our view, that motivates such radical legislation – fear that there will be an uprising against what is now occurring. Does Ms. Rabinowitz’s vocabulary somehow reflect this fear?
Are the timing of the bill and Ms. Rabinowitz’s editorial merely coincidental? We would argue that the bill is so vague that Ms. Rabinowitz could be seen as making a case for accusations against Dr. Paul even if she didn’t mean to.
For the record, Ms. Rabinowitz may believe every word she says is patriotic and valid, but there are many even at the top levels of politics and the military who would disagree with her. They are on the record in myriad publications and posts.
There have been books written by people involved with the 9/11 Commission, for instance, that challenge many of its conclusions. And there are plenty of military members and international observers (and intelligence officers) who will maintain that by attacking so many countries in the Middle East and Africa the US has done more harm than good when it comes to self-defense.
The ongoing use of depleted uranium weapons is said to have poisoned hundreds of thousands, even millions – and regardless of Ms. Rabinowitz’s defense of NATO action, the suffering from so many wars lasting so long is bound to be developing more (not fewer) enemies for the West, and the US, in particular. Ron Paul is not the only one making these points, and one could argue he is doing so as a patriotic American.
One of our articles (an interview, actually) pointed out that the US’s military-industrial complex and CIA has illegally built a vast Gulag in Africa and the Middle East, using the existing facilities of various countries that then seemingly do Western Intel’s bidding.
The interview pointed out that there were basically no al Qaeda members in these jails, from what we could see, but that putting so many falsely accused young men in prison for questioning was only contributing to anger and violence, to the point where such young people would be willing to turn themselves into bomb-carrying suicides. We were not making these statements to be “unpatriotic,” but to point out how US military and intelligence policy has strayed from common sense in many ways.
The whole point of an independent media and political process is to ensure that all sides of an issue are debated and a consensus can be reached that citizens will support and contribute to. Societies are apt to fragment and degrade when such conversations are blocked.
Conclusion: Hopefully, Ms. Rabinowitz’s language was chosen within the context of emotionality and not with a precision that would somehow imply that candidate Ron Paul’s language was in some sense treasonous. Such a perspective would represent an alarming ratcheting up of a disturbing dialogue now taking place in the US – and Europe as well.
First of all, let me make it perfectly clear, that I have never voted in my life and I’m not going to register and vote for Ron Paul, and here is why. You don’t need to be smart to have good instincts, and if I have anything, it’s good instincts. I have known without studying politics’ that voting was a declaration of having faith in human nature, and life experiences taught me early on that human nature is totally depraved and self centered. It was also apparent that voting would, (even if it were fair and honest), make tyrants out of the winning voters, because they enabled government to force the losers to go against everything they believed in. Too me, 51 people forcing 49 people to accept their decisions is out and out tyranny. In fact, 99 people forcing one person to do as they say, and not what they do, is pure BS. I am quite content to live and die by the Ten Commandments, and no set of man made laws is needed or wanted to keep me out of jail and in good standing in my community. If there is any one thing that humanity has done that is worse than rejecting God’s laws, and instituting their own government’s, I don’t know what it could be, and I’m also convinced that the Lord God Almighty, who is in complete control of all governments is making it perfectly clear through them that he did not much care for it either. No where, can I find more common sense than in people of like mind isolating themselves from other communities, and that does not mean you cannot have some contact and business with other communities. To be governed by people who force other people to do what is abhorrent to them, is tyranny of the highest order. To allow stupid people to vote is insane. All humanity needs is an administration to process things, not a government to make insane laws. However, the vast majority of humanity does not have enough Faith in God to manage themselves, and stay outside the camp. A man that depends on controlling himself by voluntary subjection to a democracy is a coward. I know very well that this is too much for most people to accept, but only death is going to change me. Make sure the people sent to kill me are well armed!
Now, back to Ron Paul.
I despair from so much proof that the majority of people living in America actually believe that 19 ragheads with box cutters could take down two steel towers with airplanes. Everyone, who is so ignorant of physic’s and steel framed construction to believe the governments media industries lies, should never leave their house, because they are too stupid to care for their self. Any person who believes anything that the government relay’s to them through those pukes in the media industry is seriously retarded. Is that plain enough?
So why do so many people want our government to kill every raghead in the whole world, if they don’t believe the governments every utterance? It seems very clear that the majority believes all Middle Eastern people have no right to their nation’s natural resources, because a handful of them did the impossible. What I want to know is, what you would do if the government said; your neighbor of a sixty years shot and killed your children. Would you kill him and seize his property, or hold an investigation of your own? Wait! Let me make it a little easier, what if your old trusted neighbor had no legs, and the only weapon he ever had was a screwdriver?
Why is it even possible for so many people to believe that we are justified in killing other people, and confiscating their resources because our government said they did the impossible? I may have the answer!!! It’s not because so many are stupid, or evil, it’s because they suffer from cognitive dissonance, as in being unable to accept something as truth, because one has to change their first false conclusion that appealed to their depraved nature, and conducting an independent unbiased investigation would make their friends abandon them. It is true that there is such a thing as the herd instinct, but there is also a herd mentality, and most so called Americans seem to have it. If this offends you, think of how you would feel if you lived in Afghanistan. It seems I have something in common with Ron Paul, and I’m NOT a libertarian.
When it comes to Paul’s monetary opinions, and the Federal Reserve, I don’t want to even discuss it being possible for any adult to be ignorant enough to support the Federal Reserves worthless debt currency, and the International Investment Bankers that own it. Yes Ron, we have something in common.
But I’m still not going to vote for you or anyone else.
Ladies and gentlemen, there is no one human being that can make a difference in the white house, because it is the property of the Bankers, and they alone determine what our government does. If you want to do something patriotic for your country, organize a hit squad and take out the bankers.
To Kill a Snake, Cut Off it’s Damn Head!
The Power is in those who control the counters, not in the voters!
But the sheep will not believe it!
Other than crucifying Jesus Christ, there is no other more putrid thing that humanity has ever done than convincing ignorant people their votes is how politicians were put into positions of power.
So, if you still must vote,
then vote every incumbent out for the next six elections and see for your self, your votes won’t accomplish squat.

From the Founders to the Falsifiers…From the Enlightenment to Entitlement…From Rugged Individualism to Dependency…From Polite Society to Pop Culture…From Rule of Law back to the Dark Ages…From Freedom to Tyranny…From Sovereign Nation to Amorphous Polyglot …From Prosperity to Poverty.
Most of the history of this world is littered with pain, suffering, and despair. Only in rare brief periods of time did any sort of logic & rationality influence the tenor of daily life. When it did, the common people could live in relative peace & prosper.
Our Founders were men of classical education who studied the philosophers of the Enlightenment which held that all men should be free of tyranny of any sort, that each man belonged to & was responsible for himself, and that no man was to be a dictator with ultimate power of life or death over others.
The Enlightenment was born and nourished chiefly in Europe and it became the world’s greatest champion of the individual and his right to exist for his own sake & that he had the right to life, liberty, property and to seek happiness…a huge departure from the “Divine Right of Kings” or “Might Makes Right”.
This was a Caucasian achievement and for the most part has never been adopted in other cultures that often have been hostile to those ideas. Ironically, today other cultures clamor to live in Caucasian societies, yet cling to their old failed philosophies, make demands on their host and show obvious hostility toward their benefactor. While enjoying Forced Redistribution, i.e. welfare handouts, they harbor hatred, resentment and a false sense of entitlement.
What makes this possible is the highly successful tool of brainwashing/indoctrination of Political Correctness which preys on White guilt (unearned) and rewards (unearned) “minorities” based upon the smear effects of buzz words such as “Racist”, “extremist”, “sexist”, “bigot”, “anti-Semite”, “hater”, “homophobe”, etc.
The Cultural Marxists came up with this particular war plan against the West in the 1920’s in Europe and brought it to America in the 30’s & 40’s. Much has been written to expose those individuals and their agenda…worldwide Communism and the Death of the West.
Another tool is the destruction of merit and the teaching of dependency on government…the creation of a welfare state and ever growing expansion of government. Still another tool is “eternal war for eternal peace” creating a warfare state through fear, utilizing the horrific scam called the “war on terror”.
The chaos and degradation we see every day now in all our institutions…the military, education, all government agencies & branches, the media, entertainment, financial, open borders/mass legal & illegal immigration/invasion, all a direct result of Political Correctness run amok and a citizenry so dumbed down that many cannot think for themselves and follow blindly the dictates of the “leaders”.
With the passage of the National Defense (sic) Authorization Act the political leaders have shredded the last of our Founding Documents, our Rule of Law, our Individual Liberty and declared war on the citizens, especially any dissenters with threat of imprisonment, torture, and death.
There is only one presidential candidate who abides by the Constitution…our last chance maybe ever to restore some order to our once noble experiment–our Republic.
I make no apologies for my audacity to intimidate or denigrate those who will not sacrifice a few minutes daily to become knowledgeable on what is being done to our country, and participate in forwarding that information to their friends, co-workers, and family, because we are all going to lose everything we hold dear if we do not participate. The fantastic letter above and the preceding article from Barbara McCutchen at http://arkansasfreedom.com is an example of what you all should be doing, whether you have the time or not, and there remains no excuse for not picking up the fight for our freedom. HOWEVER, I have been exceptionally pleased to have received so many replies of late, and the questions you have asked indicates that many of you understand the emergency of mass participation, in this information war, and I am so proud of you for your interest and sacrifice, especially those who, like me, have no formal education. Your participation is proof enough of your intelligence, because to have retained the instinct for survival is to demonstrate conclusively that you are not just emotionally patriotic, but determined to survive and protect the lives and freedom of your loved ones. That is why men and women really go to war. The preservation of the principals of freedom is worth all sacrifice. Sincere Regards, OldDog

Our bloated, out-of-control government entities work only for their own growth/perpetuation. Mexico exploits its poverty-ridden citizens by encouraging them to invade the U.S. in order to receive billions in remittances. Socialists/Communists/Fascists work to destroy the work of our Founders. Corporations work to exploit cheap slave labor. Religions work to increase their parishioners/funding, and the “education” system works to destroy the last vestiges of certain concepts such as rugged individualism, personal responsibility, personal excellence, merit, and earned self-esteem.
The path we are on is mass suicide. We send our youth to blow up foreign countries, protect their borders and leave ours wide open to every kind of scum on earth. While the rest of the world grows to hate us for the untold damage/murder we do, the U.S. citizen is left at the mercy of so many dangers too numerous to list in this venue.
We are expected to welcome invaders who have no respect for our laws, heritage, or culture and to pay for their healthcare, babies, welfare, incarceration, housing, education, etc. lest we be called racist, while expected to bow to such organizations as Mexican La Raza (TheRACE).
Political Correctness is doing its job, it is murdering Western Civilization. The Cultural Marxists are winning…we are headed back to the jungle with little resistance because of the loss of our Founding Concepts. The Enlightenment has been snuffed, which means the death of individual freedom. The 3rd World will engulf us as the Barbarians did Rome.
No one will gain except the elite few who hold the reins of power, and history repeats itself over and over, always to the detriment of individual life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our nation had its chance and squandered it, pity the young and those to come.

The Tavistock Institute sits at the center of a web of evil, if one is inclined toward free-market thinking principles. It’s safe to say that most of the American population hasn’t a clue when the Tavistock Institute is mentioned what it stands for. It’s not a new organization. This London based not-for-profit organization was founded in 1947. The Institute operates a $6 billion a year network of foundations and it’s all funded by US taxpayers.
Ten major institutions are under its direct control but 400 subsidiaries and 3,000 think tanks and study groups that develop, implement, and impose some of its research. For instance, the Stanford Research Institute (SRI International), a $150 million-plus per year operation with 3,300 employees, is a subsidiary of the Tavistock Institute.
The Stanford Research Institute orchestrates program surveillance for Kaiser and Bechtel, as well as about 400 other companies, plus it implements extensive intelligence operations for the CIA. SRI is located on the West Coast of the United States. Its main focus is behavioral sciences and mind control.
The Tavistock Institute was originally established to study the effects of the condition called ‘shellshock,’ which affected many of the British soldiers who survived the First World War. The initial research established a breaking point for men under stress and made important progress in terms of treatment.
When Sigmund Freud moved to England and settled in Maresfield Gardens he became one of the main psychiatrists and somewhat of an academic rock star thanks to his work on behavioral science theories and mind control tactics.
Today, the Tavistock network extends from the University of Sussex to MIT, Esalen, the Hudson Institute, the Heritage Foundation, US Air Force Intelligence, the Center for Strategic and International Studies at Georgetown and the Mitre and Rand corporations. A network of secret groups indoctrinates personnel from these organizations so there’s an element of modern day cloak-and-dagger tactics surrounding the Institute.
The elite have used such hidden-in-plain-sight organizations as the Tavistock Institute to propound fear-based promotions that frighten Western Middle Classes into giving up wealth and power to pre-made globalist solutions such as the UN, World Bank, IMF, etc. But in the 21st century, these promotions are increasingly exposed and thus losing their effectiveness.
Everything from global warming to Peak Oil and the war on terror itself has been undermined by countervailing information to be found on the ‘Net. Even central banking – the elite’s most important falsification – has come under sustained attack.

IMF wants the world to save Europe … Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the IMF, said the escalating crisis now needed to be addressed as “collectively as possible” … The European financial crisis is “escalating” and is so serious that it is unlikely to be solved by eurozone countries alone, the head of the International Monetary Fund warned Thursday night. British taxpayers are now likely to be involved in an internationally co-ordinated bail-out led by the International Monetary Fund [IMF] for countries in the single currency. Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the IMF, said the escalating crisis now needed to be addressed as “collectively as possible”. Without action, the world faces the spectre of a 1930s-style depression, she said. – Montreal Gazette/UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: Unshackle the IMF to save the world.
Free-Market Analysis: Right on schedule, the International Monetary Fund’s Christine Lagarde has emerged to call for a united, Western effort to salvage the Eurozone and perhaps the euro.
This is entirely predictable in our view and has to do with the larger strategy of the Anglosphere power elite, which is to create a worldwide economic crisis in order to provide the requisite centralizing solution. If one wants to createglobal governance, a few “eggs” may have to be broken in the process.
Of course, as we’ve pointed out before, the preference of the powers-that-be would be to keep the EU together and expand it, along with the euro. But the alternative course has its attractions, too, if one is trying to build world government. Out of chaos … order.
And here comes the IMF. It is no surprise that the International Monetary Fund is raising its profile once again. It was developed after World War II as part of a larger global-government-in-waiting. In fact, the history of the modern age is the history of wars and economic depressions, each leading to greater sociopolitical and economic centralization.
We have come to call this trend “directed history” because not only do the results seem predictable but so do the events leading up to them. It is just as Shakespeare once said: “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”
Only he didn’t mean that history was being organized and directed from the top. But in the 19th and 20th centuries anyway that certainly seems to have been what happened. From the American Civil War on, especially, one can see the centralization of society advance, not only in the US but throughout the West.
Through the twin tools of war and central banking, a power elite located in the City of London with subsidiaries in DC, Tel Aviv and the Vatican has advanced global governance step by step.
It has used dominant social themes in order to frighten Western middle classes into giving up power and wealth to specially created globalist facilities. The most pervasive political tool is the UN, and its funding source is the central banking mechanism. The IMF is a large part of the mechanism as well. Here’s some more from the article:
Mrs Lagarde spoke out after other European countries indicated that they were unlikely to back a new treaty designed to shore up the single currency. Hungary and the Czech Republic said they would not agree to any new deal that involved European-wide taxes. David Cameron has already vetoed any British involvement. Yesterday, the head of the IMF described the prospects for the global economy as “quite gloomy”.
“There is no economy in the world, whether low-income countries, emerging markets, middle-income countries or super-advanced economies that will be immune to the crisis that we see not only unfolding but escalating,” Mrs Lagarde said.”If the international community doesn’t work together, the risk from an economic point of view is that of retraction, rising protectionism, isolation.
“This is exactly the description of what happened in the Thirties and what followed is not something we are looking forward to.” She added: “It is not a crisis that will be resolved by one group of countries taking action. It is going to be hopefully resolved by all countries, all regions, all categories of countries actually taking action.”
We can see from this excerpt how direct Lagarde is being. From our point of view, the economic crisis is a manufactured one, but it doesn’t matter much. Once a war or economic crisis has been created, the next steps flow logically from what has occurred. The opening is there for the taking.
And she is surely playing her part. She is quoted as comparing the Euro-crisis to the ancients’ Gordian Knot and the need for concerted action as Alexander’s sword. “[It starts] with those at the centre [and then includes] the support of the international community probably channeled through the IMF.”
She is already focused on the channeling as well, explaining that both European and non-European countries will be asked for more money. “What is happening now is that conversations, contacts are taking place between the fund and its membership about the scale and the amount in which this could be brought to a conclusion,” according to an IMF spokesperson.
And so it builds. Suddenly the IMF, which the powers-that-be have already designated as a kind of world central bank, is in charge of collection efforts to save the EU. In fact, the EU doesn’t need salvaging, nor does the euro. If both foundered and failed, the world would pause for a few moments and then go on.
Conclusion: But without a crisis there can be no further centralization. And without further centralization there can be no world government. And so it goes.
They could have never accomplished this without that scumbag obama pissing off China & Russia. I bet you my last box of ammo that China & Russia will be tickled pink to support the IMF’s introduction of a global currency and every Nation to be a contributor to bail out Europe. This will be the last straw for America, and martial law will be used to kill hundreds of thousands of patriotic defenders of freedom. Keep your ammo dry!
When you see Nato soldiers in the streets, killing your neighbors, will you finally wake the hell up?
The above was posted Friday evening, and what did I find this Saturday morning, continue reading below and you’ll know I was right.
Russia pledges billions in investment to help rescue the eurozone
Russia pledges billions in investment to help rescue the eurozone
Medvedev, left, offers help to Russia’s largest export market
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has pledged up to 20 billion euros of Russian investment to bolster the eurozone. But irregularities during recent elections in Russia were also on the agenda of an EU-Russia summit.
Speaking at the close of what was his final summit with the EU as Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev offered his solidarity with the bloc, saying Russia was willing to contribute to the rescue plan managed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for the struggling euro currency.
“We are ready to invest all financial means to back the European economy and the eurozone,” Medvedev said following talks with European leaders.
The EU must be “preserved as a powerful political and economic force … [and the euro] preserved as one of the most important reserve currencies,” he added. The EU is Russia’s biggest trading partner.
Although the president didn’t mention specific figures, his economic advisor, Arkady Dvorkovich, said earlier on Thursday Moscow was prepared to offer up to 20 billion euros ($26 billion). That figure was dependent on progress towards a 200-billion-euro boost for the IMF agreed by European Union leaders, Dvorkovich said.
EU states have until Monday to work out the details of a number of bilateral loans to the IMF which are to be used in efforts to stabilize the eurozone.
With 41 percent of Russia’s currency reserves held in the euro and half of all Russian external trade conducted with the EU, Russia’s interests in the survival of the euro are clear.
“Europe has a stake in Russia’s success as I believe Russia has a stake in Europe’s success,” European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso commented on Thursday. “We should strive for a comprehensive and broad agreement with ambitious trade and energy chapters.”
Russian protesters claimed the December 4 election was riggedIt wasn’t just economic concerns, however, which were on the agenda of the 28th EU-Russia summit in Brussels. Speaking at a press conference at the close of the summit, EU president Herman Van Rompuy said the bloc was troubled by reports of corruption in Russia’s recent elections.
“We are concerned by irregularities and lack of fairness … and we are concerned by the detention of protesters.”
Tens of thousands gathered in Moscow and other cities in Russia on Saturday denouncing the polls on December 4 as a farce. Van Rompuy noted, however, that EU leaders had had an “honest discussion” with the Russian president. He went on to praise the regime’s response to the weekend protests.
“In contrast, the recent large demonstrations were peaceful and the authorities in my view handled it very well,” he added.
On Wednesday the European Parliament called for Russia to hold a new round of “free and fair elections” and conduct investigations into any fraud claims. Medvedev declined to comment on the demands, but noted that his country’s legislature had “expressed indignation with the position of the European Parliament.”
Points of contention
No real progress was made during the summit over the issue of sanctions against Syria and Iran. Moscow has been blocking United Nations condemnation of the Syrian government’s deadly crackdown on anti-regime protests. Russia also opposes any further moves on Iran, whose nuclear program worries the West.
Medvedev opposes any further moves on Syria or IranThe two sides did, however, make progress on the steps needed to achieve visa-free travel between Russia and the EU.
“The task ahead of us is to fully implement the agreed common steps, which can lead to the opening of visa-waiver negotiations,” Commission President Barroso said.
On Tuesday, Russia struck an agreement with Poland on limited visa-free travel for inhabitants of the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, sandwiched between Lithuania and Poland.
Meanwhile trade between Russia and the EU is expected to grow further, with Russia expected to join the World Trade Organization on Friday following 18 years of negotiation.
The accession would offer “a myriad of new opportunities for trade, investment and global growth,” Van Rompuy said.

While we are raping the middle eastern Nations to force them into central banking, which supports the dollar as the reserve currency, the central bankers are hell bent on replacing the dollar’s reserve status with a new world currency, with Russia & China’s help, and when we lose the reserve status the dollar won’t be worth a dime. Out of chaos, ORDER. For the bankers that is. REPLACE YOUR DOLLARS WITH HARD SILVER, AND DO IT NOW. YOUR 401Ks WON’T BE WORTH A DIME EITHER. OUR GOVERNMENT IS IN KAHOOTS WITH THE GLOBAL BANKERS, AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK! WISE UP AND RISE UP AMERICA, WHILE YOU STILL CAN, OR BEND OVER AND KISS YOUR ASS GOODBYE!

THE GREATEST SPEECH EVER MADE
"Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death!"
Colonial Williamsburg Foundation
To avoid interference from Lieutenant-Governor Dunmore and his Royal Marines, the Second Virginia Convention met March 20, 1775 inland at Richmond–in what is now called St. John's Church–instead of the Capitol in Williamsburg. Delegate Patrick Henry presented resolutions to raise a militia, and to put Virginia in a posture of defense. Henry's opponents urged caution and patience until the crown replied to Congress' latest petition for reconciliation.
On the 23rd, Henry presented a proposal to organize a volunteer company of cavalry or infantry in every Virginia county. By custom, Henry addressed himself to the Convention's president, Peyton Randolph of Williamsburg. Henry's words were not transcribed, but no one who heard them forgot their eloquence, or Henry's closing words: "Give me liberty, or give me death!"
Henry's first biographer, William Wirt of Maryland, was three-years-old in 1775. An assistant federal prosecutor in Aaron Burr's trial for treason at Richmond in 1807, and later attorney general of the United States, Wirt began to collect materials for the biography in 1808, nine years after Henry's death. From the recollections of men like Thomas Jefferson, Wirt reconstructed an account of Henry's life, including the remarks presented below.
Patrick Henry at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia
March 23, 1775.
MR. PRESIDENT: No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do, opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending²if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

THEY WOULD RATHER WE DIE IN THE CHAINS OF ECONOMIC SLAVERY TO THEIR MASTER'S, THE GLOBAL INVESTMENT BANKERS.
AN AMERICAN'S MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!
December 8th, 2011 by olddog
By Coach Dave Daubenmire
December 8, 2011
At the risk of being labeled a “Truther”, or a “Birther” or a “Conspiracy Theorist” I thought I would take the opportunity to share with you some observations that I have recently made.
I suppose I find myself in a few head-butting incidents every now and then because I don’t just take things at face value. Although I don’t know when it happened I have become one of those who questions almost everything I hear, especially when it comes from the media.
Having spent the past decade or so dancing in and out of the public eye I have become adept at reading the bias in the media. Usually, when I get a call from one of them it is because they are searching for someone to articulate a position on a particular issue and they know that they can count on me to give them a good sound-bite.
They are not on my side. I came to understand that years ago, but in their attempts to be “fair and balanced” they call on me to give the “Right-Wing-Wacko” position that their journalistic fairness requires them to display. Rarely do I get the opportunity to have a serious discussion with a qualified, veteran reporter. They are not really interested in what I have to say.
Like so much in the media, the leg-work is done by some recently-graduated-from-journalism-school stringer who has been assigned the weekly “moral issue” for publication. Invariably, whatever this wet-behind-the-ears reporter puts in the article will be quoted over and over again as the story circulates through shared media-sources and the blogosphere. Once printed, the statement can never be clarified nor retracted. Often, the statement is out-of-context and designed to make me look like the wacko the unbiased reporter believes me to be.
But, of course, there is no bias. They are merely repeating the “facts.”
I would hope that you can tell from my writings that I am a deep-thinking man. I read and analyze volumes of materials weekly. I often receive information from readers who want to make me aware of a particular issue…I read everything, but don’t believe everything I read. Much of what I know, and believe, I never share with others.
That’s what “objective” columnists do, eh?
Let me state up front that I am non-violent but understand others are violent, so I own guns. I love my country but do not trust the government. I respect our soldiers but do not support the wars. I am a proud Christian but ashamed of what passes as Christianity. I am a life-long educator but think public education is responsible for the condition of this country. I know it is safest to keep my mouth shut, but cowardly to do so.
So at the risk of alerting the TSA, the FBI, the IRS, Homeland Security, and the Muslim Brotherhood I want to state a conclusion that I have drawn.
The War on Terror is a fraud.
I don’t want to get into 9-1-1 theories, Dick Cheney, and the free-fall exhibited by the 3 buildings in New York. That research is for those far more qualified than me. But observation of where we are in 2011 makes me tilt my head sideways as I look at what has happened to freedom in America.
Benjamin Franklin is reported to have said, "He who would trade liberty for security, deserves neither liberty nor security."
I believe the threat of Islamic terror is real and that national security is the number one job of our government, but I’ll be damned if I want to sacrifice my freedom because of what some former cave-dwelling, camel-riding recent-arrival-in-the-21st-century-Muslim might do. I fail to see how fighting in Afghanistan makes me safer in the cornfields of Ohio.
This all came home to me as I was standing in line at the airport last week…watching the “cattle-low” as they bowed to the commands of the TSA agent who just last week was an assistant manger at Pizza Hut.“Take off your shoes…no liquids in the carry on…spread your legs and put your hands behind your head…wait for permission before moving forward.”As I stood there waiting my turn to have my rights violated I was hit with an epiphany.
“What a joke,” I thought to myself. “If a terrorist wanted to kill a bunch of people, he could easily blow up a bunch of folks while he waited in line to go through the scanner. The scanner is supposed to insure that there are no bombs that make it onto the airplane, but do nothing to protect those who are waiting in line to be scanned.” On this particular early-morning flight out of Columbus there must have been 300 people waiting in line to go through security. What a terrorism opportunity!
What would TSA and Homeland Security do if a bomb was detonated by someone waiting in line? What means of security currently prohibits this from happening? Why haven’t the “terrorists” thought of this? (I am sure they have.)
What if they simultaneously did it in six airport security-lines around America? Hasn’t the “government” considered that possibility? What are they doing to provide security as we go through security? Do we actually believe that the “terrorists” have to get on a plane too kill innocent Americans?
All of the security is designed to make the cattle feel that government is protecting us.
And what about football stadiums? You mean no ‘terrorist” has thought about blowing himself up in the middle of Section B of the Super Dome during the National Anthem? What about your local high school? What about simultaneous, coordinated attacks on six schools around the nation? If their purpose was to spread death and terror can you think of anything more terrifying to the average American parent? How would TSA and Homeland Security respond to that?
And didn’t the “terrorists” miss a great opportunity for mayhem on Black Friday? Can you image the carnage that would be left as result of some suicide-bomber hitting the target by lighting up like a Christmas tree those lined up outside of the local Target Store?
How about an IED inside our churches? If it is Christianity that they hate so badly why haven’t the ‘terrorists” planned some mega –explosions at a select group of mega-churches across the country?
Just look around. Do we really think that if those who masterminded the 9-1-1 attacks were smart enough to pull it off aren’t they wise inventive enough to see all of the vulnerable targets that you and I can see? Are we really safe because of wire-taps, airport strip-searches, and the supposed-Herculean efforts of the Department of Homeland Insecurity?
When will we awaken to the fact that those who make a living off of the “war on terror” are depending on keeping us terrified?
NOTE TO ALL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES: I am not a terrorist, have no interest in killing innocent Americans, and am not interested in an armed conflict with the government. But the fact remains, I am more concerned about a black government vehicle pulling up in front of my house in the middle of the night than I am of Abdullah Appleseed blowing up a plane that I am on.
Billions of dollars are being spent at the airports to protect us from bombers in burkas, while much easier, softer, more devastating targets remain wide open to a lethal assault.
Funny isn’t it. The Department of Homeland Security has made no secret of the fact that they consider God-fearing men like me to be a greater threat to America than some terrorist named Obama Bin Lying and his henchmen.
Methinks something is amiss. Could it be possible that a “domestic terrorist attack” like the one’s I have just described could be exactly what the doctor ordered? Can you picture a scenario where the perpetrator is discovered to be an angry, right-wing, anti-government extremist…even though his remains no longer remain to be investigated or questioned?
Can’t you imagine the chaos and need for a government crackdown if one of these soft-targets is suddenly hit? Do you find it hard to believe that right-wing Christian-profiling by the Homeland
Security would suddenly be in vogue?
…and just who are all of those FEMA camps for?
I hate to think like this. I wish I wasn’t so cynical, but something doesn’t seem right. Terrorism can not destroy America.
But terror can. Am I the only one suspicious of what I see?
Do you think like a Christian or a humanist? Did the Founders really separate Church and State? Is Judicial tyranny ruining America? Check out these great teachings by the Coach

Thanks coach, I could have never said it better, but in addition to your commentary, I add this. America has become a nation of pansy asses whose only experience with violence is in sending their children to protect their life style in the banker’s preemptive wars. I am ashamed of the average American for intentionally ignoring the evidence kicking them in the ass. They are truly a bunch of sheep, while pretending to be an ostrich. The only thing that can save them is for someone with the balls to eliminate the Banking cartel.

John McCain tries to make good on longstanding threat to Putin
December 7, 2011
As chairman of the International Republican Institute, an organization dedicated to fomenting extraterritorial sedition and revolution throughout the world, US Senator John McCain has become a central figure in the current Western-engineered campaign against the Arab world. The IRI was even credited by the New York Times as helping “nurture the Arab uprisings” by funding and training activists from across the Arab world who would later go on to overthrow their respective governments. Unlike many of the other podium-bound puppets that constitute Western politics, McCain is fully aware and very public about the final destination of the unrest and now open war, he is ceaselessly promoting.
McCain stands before the tri-color flag of the Benghazi terror brigades he, the US government and NATO funded, trained, armed, and provided air support for as they committed wholesale genocide across the nation of Libya. This would be just one of several celebratory strolls through nations he helped sow sedition and chaos throughout. Egypt being another. He now aspires to stand in the ruins of Moscow.
Earlier this year John McCain openly said of the unrest his IRI had helped fund in Egypt, “I would be a little less cocky in the Kremlin with my KGB cronies today if I were Vladimir Putin. I would be a little less secure in the seaside resort [of] President Hu and a few men who govern and decide the fate of 1.3 billion people.”
On the IRI’s official website in regards to Russia, the organization confesses to “identifying and supporting leaders” at the local and regional levels of Russian politics to “lay the groundwork for Russia’s next generation of democratic leadership.” The IRI then goes on to explain it has, “created a new network of politicians, NGO activists and elected officials who are interested in the democratic development of municipal governance.” And with this US-created Russian opposition network, the IRI then sponsors conferences, and roundtables to help them “increase public participation,” (read: find people to join a US-backed opposition movement).
Golos and other US-backed NGOs and opposition parties are now attempting to trigger an “Arab Spring” in Russia. Within this context, we find that the work of McCain’s IRI recently manifested itself when it was caught meddling in Russia’s elections. The National Endowment for Democracy (NED), a US government funded umbrella organization under which the IRI falls and the IRI itself, were behind several US-backed NGOs, particularly Golos, seeking to “expose voting irregularities.” The purpose of this was of course to cast doubts on the validity of the elections and justify street mobs brought out by the Russian opposition groups the IRI had been cultivating in an attempt to trigger an “Arab Spring” in Russia.
As if to immediately head off the skeptics of this unfortunate reality – of the US meddling in an immensely populated, nuclear armed, sovereign nation-state – McCain himself would arrogantly declare on Twitter, “Dear Vlad (Vladimir Putin), The ArabSpring is coming to a neighborhood near you.” McCain would then link to a Wall Street Journal article framing with exactitude the very narrative of opposition parties filling the streets with protesters after “election irregularities” were exposed by US-financed NGO “Golos.”
McCain would later link to an anonymous Washington Post editorial (which we now know are written by paid corporate lobbyists, like those within the Podesta Group) which tried to draw comparisons between the recent protests in Russia and the “Arab Spring.” Golos was again mentioned, however, the Washington Post made no mention of its US-funding. The Post then breathtakingly states that in response to the protests and the apparent losses during the elections, Putin would, “move in a more dangerous direction, stoking Russian nationalism and looking for enemies at home and abroad.” This, after the US has just attempted to destabilize and overthrow Putin’s government, and with one of the very men funding the sedition threatening Russia with an “Arab Spring.”
More alarmingly was the Washington Post’s anonymous advice to President Obama which was to, “be prepared to deflect such attacks and to defend other likely Putin targets, such as the democratic government of Georgia. In the meantime, the democratic world can hope that Sunday was the beginning, and not the end, of a Russian awakening.”
Of course Georgia in 2008, under directions of its US allies, attempted to invade Russian-protected South Ossetia, triggering a dangerous proxy conflict that saw hundreds killed. And as we’ve seen in Libya, and now in Syria, protests in the street verifiably triggered by the US NED and its subsidiaries, while portrayed as genuine and spontaneous by the corporate-media, are in fact the first step of American military aggression. The veiled threats by the Washington Post regarding proxy military agitators like Georgia are analogous to the US’ funding and arming Libyan and now Syrian militants.
While McCain and a growing, concerted chorus of corporate-media propagandists insist that it is Vladimir Putin who must be vigilant and wary of coming unrest, it is actually both the American and Russian people, and the various proxies these two powerful nations will mobilize to their defense that will inevitably suffer the consequences. John McCain and the corporate-fascists surrounding him, the Obama administration and every lever of power within the Western world is steering “we the people” into an escalating crisis with a nuclear armed superpower. When one nation attempts to overthrow the sovereign government of another nation, it most certainly is an act of war.
Unlike during the Libyan conflict, or any number of other nations that the US has meddled in and sown deadly chaos throughout, a similar conflict with Russia will not be one enjoyed by Americans watching it unfold on TV. As the end approaches of this zero sum game, the stakes will exponentially rise, so too will the consequences. If Americans would like to edge their nation away from the precipice of World War III, they may want to examine just who is behind men like McCain. Then we must expose them, boycott them, and ultimately replace them.
Personally, I think John McCain should be dropped off in Russia like an unwanted dog, before he and his masters start something (we the people) will shed our blood for. How many young men’s lives have been lost or destroyed because of reptilian scumbags like McCain? When will it stop?
Are the American people so stupid they cannot see we are being manipulated into one war after another with fear tactics and lies? When will this “Land of the free, and the home of the brave” crap stop? There is nothing left of freedom in America, and it sure as hell is not brave to start or participate in false flag wars. It’s not like the evidence is hidden folks, all you have to do is a little research, to become enlightened about the atrocities we have sacrificed our children, and our youth too.
This quest for a War Hero that America is addicted to is going to be our downfall, and there won’t be any getting back up. What the hell is so wonderful about killing innocent civilians? Why not the Bankers, politicians, and John McCain’s instead? Let McCain and the Global Bankers suck us into a really big war, and the only thing you will be able to hear over the bombs, is the Bankers insane laughter as they cut off our fiat money supply. Wake the hell up! Has it never occurred to you that people who own and or invest in war materials manufacturing, would do all in their power to support more wars? How would they make a profit without more wars? And please don’t accuse me of being a liberal, because I eat them for breakfast, and feed their bones to my dog. . . .OldDog

The "Free Syria Army" is literally an army of militant extremists, many drawn not from Syria's military ranks, but from the Muslim Brotherhood, carrying heavy weapons back and forth over the Turkish and Lebanese borders, funded, supported, and armed by the United States, Israel, and Turkey. The latest evidence confirming this comes in the form of a report out of the International Institute for Strategic Studies which clearly states that Syria's opposition is armed and prepared to drag Syria into more violence.
This report comes in sharp contrast to the propaganda fed via the corporate-media and the West's foreign ministers on a daily basis, where the violence is portrayed as one-sided, with Syria's President Bashar al-Assad "gunning down" throngs of peaceful, placard waving protesters. Just as in Libya where these so-called "peaceful protesters" turned out to be hordes of genocidal racist Al Qaeda mercenaries, led by big-oil representatives, fighting their cause upon a verified pack of lies, so too is Syria's "pro-democracy" movement which is slowly being revealed as yet another militant brand of extremists long cultivated by Anglo-American intelligence agencies, whose leadership is harbored in London and Washington and their foot soldiers supplied a steady stream of covert military support and overt rhetorical support throughout the compromised corporate media.
The unrest in Syria from the beginning was entirely backed by Western corporate-financier interests and part of a long-planned agenda for region-wide regime change. Syria has been slated for regime change since as early as 1991. In 2002, then US Under Secretary of State John Bolton added Syria to the growing "Axis of Evil." It would be later revealed that Bolton's threats against Syria manifested themselves as covert funding and support for opposition groups inside of Syria spanning both the Bush and Obama administrations.
In an April 2011 CNN article, acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner stated, "We're not working to undermine that [Syrian] government. What we are trying to do in Syria, through our civil society support, is to build the kind of democratic institutions, frankly, that we're trying to do in countries around the globe. What's different, I think, in this situation is that the Syrian government perceives this kind of assistance as a threat to its control over the Syrian people."
Toner's remarks came after the Washington Post released cables indicating the US has been funding Syrian opposition groups since at least 2005 and continued until today.
In an April AFP report, Michael Posner, the assistant US Secretary of State for Human Rights and Labor, stated that the "US government has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments." The report went on to explain that the US "organized training sessions for 5,000 activists in different parts of the world. A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there." Posner would add, "They went back and there's a ripple effect." That ripple effect of course is the "Arab Spring," and in Syria's case, the impetus for the current unrest threatening to unhinge the nation and invite in foreign intervention.
With planted "speculation" running through the corporate media that a recent explosion, amongst several other "incidents" in Iran, were the work of Western covert operations, and the Jerusalem Post all but admitting the entire Western-backed destabilization in Syria aims not at ushering in "democracy" or upholding "human rights," but to weaken Iran by proxy, it is clear that everything within Wall Street and London's power is being done to provoke Iran. Iran has downplayed the recent explosion at their military base as an accident and has thus far maintained a persistent patience in the face of criminal provocations and overt acts of war by an alarmingly and increasingly depraved West.
It is quite clear that the stratagems spelled out in the corporate-funded Brookings Institute report "Which Path to Persia?" have been read and understood by both sides and that Iran realizes that any act of retaliation not expertly played, only gives the West what it has stated it wants – an excuse to go to war with the Islamic Republic. Should the public in Syria, Iran, and throughout the West also read "Which Path to Persia?" and realize that the only threat Iran and its allies pose to the West is toward the extraterritorial ambitions of Wall Street and London, perhaps a bloody, entirely unnecessary war can be avoided, and the first steps taken toward dismantling the parasitic corporate-financier oligarchy that has misled the world for the past several decades.
It’s about time the American flag waving emotional patriots wake up to the fact that our banker owned government has been manipulating their loyalty to America, and making deluded supporters of global tyranny out of them, while the naïve taxpayer foots the bill for their own eventual loss of everything they hold dear. This has been the most successful brain washing experiment ever fostered on humanity. Let the reader fully understand that the banker owned media industry has been manipulating your opinions since you were still pissing your pants, and they are masters at it. While they simultaneously badger you to accept different cultures as having every right to live and procreate anywhere they want and keep their own culture intact, they are making global racist out of you with their claims of genocide committed by other nations who they have also manipulated, with your money! And you wonder why so many Nations hate us! I’m seventy one years old and this crap has been going on long before I was born, and I am now convinced this Nation has never fought in a justified war. They have all been the result of Banker/government manipulation of the masses, for the soul purpose of consolidating their power over Nations and making obscene profits from it. All of this “we are hero’s” bullshit, is an admission of our stupidity from being so easily manipulated into becoming murderers of innocent people. WHEN WILL HUMANITY WAKE UP AND KILL THE INTERNATIONAL BANKING CARTEL, AND THE SCUMBAG POLITICIANS, INSTEAD OF EACH OTHER?
