By David W. McElroy
I have had difficulty writing lately, feeling dazed, depressed, and disabled by the barrage of disasters, tyranny, and blatant corruption so obvious these days. I have failed to finish items, finding myself intellectually “punch drunk” in the face of yet another tragedy or outrage. But we must find the will to actively turn the tide. Where is Spartacus?
Many of us are just closing our doors, even our minds, trying to avoid the deluge of bad news and outright lies spewing from the corporate mainstream media and government offices in our clearly fascist welfare/warfare police state. The alternative media is also often depressing in exposing the dark machinations of the elitists. Corruption is rampant, and not even hidden. Brazen crimes are enforced with intimidation while the courts look the other way. Public officials are so confident of their “good ol’ boy” system that they no longer bother to even pretend they are representative, honest, or accountable to We the People. Our knowledge and consent is no longer desired or respected by them. The public servants have become our masters, completely violating the basic principles of American Heritage in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. The Holy Bible is ridiculed and often outlawed, even The Ten Commandments.
We need not use speculations about secret weapons, HAARP, black ops, UFO reports, TR3 B triangular craft or space aliens to convince our neighbors of our perils. No need for “conspiracy theories”. What is in plain public view is more than enough to warn our families, friends, and neighbors. Such as when the New Mexico State Police ruled Officer Lopez “did not violate the law” when a security camera had taped him having sex with a woman on the hood of a car on public land in August… in uniform! Gee, could we all be doing this without being charged with indecency or lewd behavior? Government officers’ disrespect for law only encourages lawlessness, or tyranny, for us all. Which will it be?
Federal Judge Royce Lamberth even recently “concluded that there’s no real interest in determining whether the Obama Social Security Number is genuine or fraudulent, arguing that the need for privacy for the president trumps all else,” Bob Unruh reported in an Aug. 30th article in World Net Daily. He stated that Lamberth wrote that “whether Obama is using a fake number isn’t his concern, ‘Even if the plaintiff’s allegations were true…’ ”
Every case brought against Obama has been dismissed out of hand by various courts, all denying anyone has standing to challenge a lawless president with any charges, even the states which are signatories to the Constitution. Elena Kagan was appointed to the US Supreme Court with huge conflicts of interest, including her having worked as a federal prosecutor defending Obama against numerous charges regarding his citizenship status.
The “Gang of Nine” is not looking out for our interests, and even openly discusses using foreign laws in rendering their decisions, in violation of their oaths of office requiring defense of the US Constitution. Speaking of oaths of office, recall Obama’s public oath-taking was flubbed, and he later took his oath again in a private ceremony. Do you ever wonder what words were actually in the oath Obama officially swore to?
I last published about the usurpation of Congress by the “Super Committee” Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner agreed to. Only twelve senators and congressmen plus Obama will create fiscal legislation (and?), disallowing the rest of Congress to do anything but rubber stamp the committee’s decisions. The presidential usurper has taken upon himself the power of the purse rightfully held only by Congress, and neutered both houses on the Hill. We now have taxation without representation! Do you accept this?
The Justice Dept. under Eric Holder, in a BATF budget line item, is found to be authorizing illegal shipments of thousands of military-grade firearms to Mexican drug cartels. Subordinate attorneys say Holder refuses to prosecute black-on-white crimes under Obama’s watch, such as when the Black Panthers, who were videotaped openly intimidating white voters at the polls, were not prosecuted. Where is the justice?
Obama has repeatedly refused to obey or respect court decisions and has taken it upon himself to determine if federal statutes are Constitutional. He ignores Congress, and has taken away the purse strings from our public representatives in the House, ignoring the procedures outlined in the Constitution. He is refusing to defend our states against the Mexican invasion, and grants amnesty to illegal aliens despite Congress rejecting it. He has even brought charges against Arizona in the United Nations to stifle that states’ enforcement of federal immigration laws Obama refuses to enforce. The public loudly said “NO!” to Obama’s nationalized healthcare, and courts have ruled against it. But “Obamacare” will be imposed anyway, he says. Will you allow this?
Not only domestic laws are violated, but the Geneva Convention and the principles for international law stated in the Nuremberg Trials have been cast aside contemptuously. The US military is sent to conquer one small nation after another for corporate profits, nations not even capable of attacking American shores. America is no longer the hope of freedom and prosperity, the “Shining City on the Hill”. It is feared and reviled. Torture is condoned, and Obama claims authority to kill anyone, anywhere, on his command alone. Habeus Corpus, Posse Commitatus, Due Process, Rights to Privacy, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of the Press, Peaceful Assembly and Free Speech are things of the past now. The Second Amendment is under constant attack, and Obama is supporting a UN treaty that would outlaw civilian firearms. Warrants are no longer needed, and a court in Indiana recently ruled you have no right to defend your home or family against police even when such officers are blatantly behaving in a criminal manner. It is a license to rob, rape, and kill. Just try to object to the TSA agents groping your wife’s crotch, if you doubt this.
Banksters are exposed committing mortgage (and other) frauds, but courts can see no reason to prosecute those “too big to fail“. Instead, the laws will be amended to speed up the foreclosure process, giving “little people” less time to review legalities and options that might let them retain their homes, farms, and other real estate investments. The entire financial system imposed by the Federal Reserve Bank system is designed to bankrupt this nation via usury and paper currency legally deemed “debt instruments“. The Bible warned us against the dangers of usury, and becoming debtors. Debt is monetized and real money, gold and silver, may soon become black market items. Remember how President Franklin D. Roosevelt outlawed private gold ownership and confiscated it?
Socialist policies and Capitalist greed have driven American industry, entrepreneurs, inventors, farmers, ranchers, fishermen, loggers, truckers, machinists, and more, right into bankruptcy. In “Public-Private Partnerships”, losses and liabilities are socialized upon the public and profits and privileges are privatized for the elite. America won WWII by virtue of her manufacturing strength backed by a strong work ethic reinforced by a living wage. Now we must work for less and less, if we yet have a job, being reduced to poverty.
We have become a nation bereft of many basic industries, and are buying many military supplies from Red China. Chinese electronics used in US military applications were found to have secretly installed chips that report data to the Chinese. America is seen as weak and ripe for the picking. Many foreign troops are already stationed here, and Obama has authorized the Chinese to build their own cities on American soil under their own flag with Chinese law enforcement in “Free Trade Zones” all across the land. Do you see a “Trojan Horse”?
How might we turn the tables on our treasonous public officials? Where is Spartacus?
I might suggest that instead of railing against the corrupt rulings and policies being thrown at us like a barrage of bricks and Molotov cocktails flying from all three branches of government that we instead agree with the pirates in the District of Criminals. Before you think I am daft, let me assure you there is a method to my madness. I still strive as a patriotic Christian freedom fighter. What I am advocating is a means of turning the tables against the “Great Satan” holed up on the Potomac, a means of turning its own evil words against it with some political judo. Local sheriffs can be a great help if we persuade them to follow former sheriffs Richard Mack or Jim Schwiesow’s examples. Maricopa County Sheriff Arpaio has also been bold, daring to investigate Obama’s citizenship status and enforce immigration laws.
As Lamberth has ruled privacy trumps all else, “Even if plaintiff’s allegations were true,” we should assert the same rights, as under American legal heritage, all are to be deemed equal under the law. No person is to be deemed to be above the law. We should end the massive “full spectrum” surveillance we suffer. We all know that the politicians, judges, bureaucrats, and uniformed minions all have deemed themselves to be above the law. They have often stated “I am the law!” and free to do whatever they may please with us civilians… and it does not matter what the Bill of Rights says if we disobey an officer! Public “servants” have usurped the public mastery, it is high time they were disciplined to know they cannot claim rights superior to We the People.
When the government’s, Congress, courts, or bureaucracy rules on any issue, we should respond in kind to act with equal application to expose the injustice and absurdity of their corrupt and destructive policies and practices. We can do this peacefully, and in solidarity in massive public protests and class actions, much like the many men who claimed to be Spartacus in that great movie’s climax. The federal forces, of course, will loudly, perhaps violently, respond that the laws are to be applied to the general public, not government’s people. They will expose themselves as the tyrants and criminals that they are when we behave within the legal parameters they set for themselves and claim equal application of the law. We must remind government officers our Bill of Rights was written to restrain government, not We the People. The need to exercise our rights to citizens’ arrest, the Grand Jury system of indictment, and a Citizen’s Tribunal will become obvious. Dare to be disillusioned, see and act upon the truth!
In so doing, we will also demonstrate to the peoples of the world that we Americans do not approve, consent, or tolerate the evil perpetrated by the elitists in their quest to enslave humanity and reduce our numbers with genocide. Rekindle the Spirit of ‘76 ! We must secede to succeed! Perhaps we can once again be that “Shining City on a Hill”, the bastion of Truth, Justice, and Liberty for all. But we must not flinch in rising to meet the challenge. We need real men, warriors running to the battle. Where is Spartacus?
Look around folks. Do you see anyone in the presidential election lineup that reminds you of another Spartacus, or do you see the same bunch of Banker puppets to choose from. Let me make it as clear as a bell, every one of you that has dragged your mind to an understanding of what is going on in our government is a Spartacus. In fact, we have a Nation of people who are all Spartacus's’, and the sword of truth is your ammunition. How do I know this? Simple, you could not possibly be stupid enough to be unaware of the tyranny in our government, or so cowardly to accept it. You’re just waiting for that spark to ignite your rage. Then you will march right up to the (OUR) white House and drag that imposter out and put him on a ship to Kenya, or some other hell-hole. Tell me I’m wrong; tell me you don’t have the balls to protect your country. I won’t believe you; I can’t believe you! Americans’ are free men above all else, and will never give up.
THE MOST RECENT EVENTS IN THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL WAR INCLUDED A MEETING OF THE ‘UNALIGNED NATIONS’ AND THE BOMBING OF TWO UNDERGROUND BASES
Benjamin Fulford, former Japanese correspondent for Forbes Magazine, is interviewed by David Wilcox (story posted on Divine Cosmos website) and talks about the state of the world economy from ‘where he sits’. Ben is in one of the ‘loops’, regarding efforts being made by some of the world’s most powerful people to restore global sanity. There are many now attempting to stop the corrupt international financial gangsters (including the Federal Reserve banksters) and their relentless destructive schemes to control the global economy.
Some of the points Ben discussed in this interview:
§ The Federal Reserve and the globalists are being cut off of both oil and money
§ The ‘elite’ seeking world domination have roots that go all the way back to Caesar
§ The ‘elite’ want the population reduced to 500,000,000. They were planning a nuclear holocaust to achieve this goal and they built underground bases to insure their own survival.
§ Recent earthquakes in Colorado and Washington were attacks on the elite’s secret government’s underground bases (shelters).
§ Fearing arrest, the Bilderberger’s fled their most recent meeting in Switzerland
More info from Fulford’s web site (9-14-11) about the international meeting of international finance ministers that he discussed:
Neil Keenan and Keith Scott
This letter came in and confirms what I have been hearing from my sources in Europe, Japan and the US. We are near the end game. Humanity is about to be freed.
It is all coming down :-
The meeting between the 57 Finance Ministers from around the world that took place on board a ship off the coast of Monaco is beginning to quietly emerge as a powerful and dynamic shift in Global Economics and potentially in Global Politics as former Presidents and Prime Ministers of countries who have sided with the Banking Cabal, are now already jumping ship and supporting the growing movement toward proper financial management of the Global Accounts around the World.
A cataclysmic shift in both Global Politics and Economics is now well under way. World Governments are coming to understand how the Global Banking System is systematically looting entire economies through theft, fraud, deception and manipulation, which in turn forces Governments to raise taxes that citizens should not have to pay.
At the meeting of 57 an understanding was created and this understanding has been formalized by the Co-Hosts of that meeting, the Swiss Government. Our internal information indicates more than 80 Governments have issued the Acknowledgement of Memorandum of the Agreement and will formally sign when all Governments who have been invited to sign, formally do so. Also from internal sources, we know that many more Governments will sign. Governments are starting to wise up to what are the underlying causes of financial disaster around the World. Their response is simple and if it could be paraphrased it would be “It is time to get these bums who think they run the world from behind closed doors and drown them like the rats they are”.
This now means that those, who in their arrogance sought to dominate and control the masses through their subterfuge and fraud, have deluded themselves into a corner from where there is now no escape for them. The entire financial mess the world is in will now prove to be a mirage that we, the innocent taxpayer, have been led to believe in. Banks will soon be forced to abide by their Charters and to undertake business strictly according to their Charters. The days of moving public income to the private side ledgers of the banks while they move their private liabilities to the public side ledgers are almost over.
The Banks have blamed the public for overspending. Yet when the economy was hit in 2008 and there was need to provide the TARP funds to keep banks solvent, the banking gurus decided the citizens needed to spend more to kick start the economy. Then the Banks blame all the problems on the taxpayer, when in truth it was the Banks who were stealing and gambling with funds they mirrored from the Global Accounts for underwriting purposes. In fact, they actually called the Global Account bonds as “Casino Bonds”. I can bet, Heads I win and Tails, I don’t lose…the collateral accounts do. Great deal.
The whole thing was started when white dragon society members had 134.5 Billion in bearer bonds stolen from them by Daniele dal Bosco and a renegade officer of the now defunct Office of International Treasury Control (OITC), David Sale. Sale, who despised his former boss Ray C. Dam deliberately set about to malign Ray C Dam and another former officer of OITC, a White Dragon, to Cambodian press and on various internet sites and Sale eventually sent documents he forged to Cambodian Police with the intention of incriminating Ray C. Dam and the White Dragon. Sale believed he could take over OITC by conspiring with Giancarlo Bruno and others from the World Economic Forum, who in turn conspired to embroil and indeed did involve Ban Ki Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations, in the illegal use of Bonds stolen from the White Dragons.
We have a world where the conveniences of power, money and deceit transform into levels of corruption, fraud and theft that stagger the mind with their proportions. We have people who see what is right and needs to be done, being ambushed by situations that destroy them as being useful in fighting the cabal that has threatened to enslave the world.
What nobody realized would happen, did happen.
When the OITC member became friends with the White Dragon Society, not enemies, that friendship was based on doing what is right and best for the world even in the face of the darkest and most blatant threats against their lives. A gunfight took place near the White Dragon member’s home between those who would eliminate him and those who have been sent there to protect him. A known mafioso was caught near the home of a another White Dragon in Switzerland who had been helping. Sale made attempts to hire people in Italy to eliminate yet another White Dragon. Recently he had a very narrow escape when three heavy bags dropped from possibly as high as 35 floors above missed him by mere inches. Ray C. Dam was imprisoned for more than eight months in Cambodia and we know people were paid to dispose of him permanently an activity that it seems the Government of Cambodia tolerated and the United States Government refused to render any assistance to Dam, a United States citizen. He only survived due to the efforts of the White Dragon Society members. These men know the dangers, as key people who were close to them have been eliminated in the past. A White Dragon friend Joe Bendana died in very suspicious circumstances in New Jersey. Another friend was lost in Andreas Jawurek, a Swiss lawyer who pushed the envelope too far with one of the banks and who was found with a gunshot wound to the head.
White Dragon Society members presented the plans they developed and their intentions to the Governments who attended the meeting in Monaco and the Governments like it. One key White Dragon may have his enemies, but he has emerged from over 20 years of working around the Global Accounts to become one of the very few in the world with a true understanding of economics as they relate to these accounts. Another one is a pit bull that knows no fear and has the clarity of mind and purpose that staggers the imagination.
The plan calls for a complete reigning in of the banks and to force them to work according to their Charters, and bankers who fail to comply will face the consequences of their actions. In America, it has been estimated that the US Debt could be eliminated with less than four years through this one device. Taxes could be driven down to their lowest level since the beginning of the nineteenth century.
It is estimated that taxes on the people could be reduced heavily and in many cases eliminated. This is done simply by forcing Banks to pay back to Treasury what they have been stealing in almost every country in the World. Force them to make proper pass back to Treasury Direct instead of stealing the wealth of their clients through fraud and deception.
Put this together with proper oversight, which will take men of resolve and courage such as the above mentioned White Dragons, men who understand the real cause of economic problems, and then the economic problems we are told exist, will simply vanish, for they are no more than a mirage. If you do not believe this, then add the trillions in profits that banks tender as trading profits and the bonuses they pay themselves for the United States alone, and you will have considerably more than the annual deficit growth. Are these earnings from honest labor? Not at all. They are the earnings gained from misrepresentation, fraud, theft, deception and manipulation. The steal the homes of hard working people, people who have been disadvantaged by the rush of banks to pay shareholders ever increasing dividends and themselves ever increasing salaries and bonuses.
Clean up the trading markets of banks and ensure money goes where it is supposed to go.
Once the accounts are in the hands of men who will ensure they are used as they should be, then the problems the world faces today in the disenfranchisement of the working middle class will cease. All countries will have equitable access to the Global Accounts, no matter what their politics.
This change is coming. The countries that have already decided their assets within the Global Accounts System shall be brought under proper control have also decided that Keenan and Scott, the men who have defined where the problems really lie and have fearlessly moved to resolve these problems should also be the men who will oversee the accounts.
We are on the cusp of a whole new era for the world.
One thing the “rats” should realize, no matter how powerful they think they are, Governments make the laws. In the end, these rats that own the Federal Reserve System and the Global Banking System are subject to law, and their days manipulating politicians will come to a very hard end as the politicians wake up.
Senior International Finance official.
Is Benjamin Fulford a whacko, or a straight up journalist? I will leave that up to the reader, but my opinion is he is just another publicity seeker praying on the hope of the masses. There are many people who justify their actions on their concern for the agony of We the People, and give false hope like a placebo for a hypochondriac, all the while gaining attention and admiration from the dull and ignorant.
Telling the ignorant what they want to hear is very effective in side tracking them from the truth, and the truth is the Banking elites have assembled a massive number of people worldwide, who implement their orders and plans, to dominate a species of self-centered ignoramuses that swim in a gator pond of self-indulgence.
The intelligent truth seeker knows that the political, economical, and social repercussions of the mercantilist policies and manipulations of the global banking elites have reached far deeper into the cultural and scientific spheres of every Nation than is generally acknowledged. Soon there will be a global monetary pandemic resulting in a consolidation of assets in the hands of these elites, and inescapable debt slavery for the rest of humanity. In fact, it is in progress as you read this.
At the risk of constantly repeating myself and boring my readers, I will once again repeat the only possible solution to this global catastrophe, and accent it with an analogy.
In all warfare, there is a chain of command, with the cannon fodder at the bottom and the generals at the top. Unfortunately, the intellect is near missing at the bottom and concentrated at the top, which is why all the suffering and loss of life is at the bottom, and only a little in the middle, and none at the top, because the intellectual development at the bottom is such that they volunteer to be killed or wounded, with a sugarplum vision of victory in their mind.
These poor intellectually challenged grunts never considered that the war they are fighting was instigated by someone whose intellect is even far above that of their generals, and if those people had been eliminated, there would be no war or the disastrous tragedies that result. In plain language, let me repeat the solution to peace on earth and financial stability everywhere is to have the military eliminate the global bankers and their henchmen; all of whom have been identified. Next, all of their trillions of dollars in assets should be confiscated and divided up between the nations as recompense for the evil actions of these scumbags, and until America is educated on this and with one voice demand the heads of these bastards, there will be no peace or freedom from tyrannical governments because the Bankers own them.
If we do not do this, we are going to wake up one day as absolute slaves to these people and most of us will have already been murdered. They have been audacious enough to announce their plans of lowering the global population to around 500 million, as that is all that is needed to provide for them. I have reached the point of frustration with my fellow citizens to the point of no longer caring if some scumbag reports me for some trumped-up charge of whatever, and throws me in jail, because I really see no difference in the future we all have unless they wake the hell up. You cannot get a banker owned government to bite it’s owner.
To kill a snake, cut off it’s damn head!!!!!

Everything you ever wanted to know about the 9/11 conspiracy theory in under 5 minutes.
TRANSCRIPT: On the morning of September 11, 2001, 19 men armed with boxcutters directed by a man on dialysis in a cave fortress halfway around the world using a satellite phone and a laptop directed the most sophisticated penetration of the most heavily-defended airspace in the world, overpowering the passengers and the military combat-trained pilots on 4 commercial aircraft before flying those planes wildly off course for over an hour without being molested by a single fighter interceptor.
These 19 hijackers, devout religious fundamentalists who liked to drink alcohol, snort cocaine, and live with pink-haired strippers, managed to knock down 3 buildings with 2 planes in New York, while in Washington a pilot who couldn’t handle a single engine Cessna was able to fly a 757 in an 8,000 foot descending 270 degree corskscrew turn to come exactly level with the ground, hitting the Pentagon in the budget analyst officewhere DoD staffers were working on the mystery of the 2.3 trillion dollars that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld had announced “missing” from the Pentagon’s coffers in a press conference the day before, on September 10, 2001.
Luckily, the news anchors knew who did it within minutes, the pundits knew within hours, the Administration knew within the day, and the evidenceliterally fell into the FBI’s lap. But for some reason a bunch of crazy conspiracy theorists demanded an investigation into the greatest attack on American soil in history.
The investigation was delayed, underfunded, set up to fail, a conflict of interest and a cover up from start to finish. It was based on testimonyextracted through torture, the records of which were destroyed. It failed to mention the existence of WTC7, Able Danger, Ptech, Sibel Edmonds, OBL and the CIA, and the drills of hijacked aircraft being flown into buildings that were being simulated at the precise same time that those events were actually happening. It was lied to by the Pentagon, the CIA, the Bush Administration and as for Bush and Cheney…well, no one knows what they told it because they testified in secret, off the record, not under oath and behind closed doors. It didn’t bother to look at who funded the attacks because that question is of “little practical significance“. Still, the 9/11 Commission did brilliantly, answering all of the questions the public had (except most of the victims’ family members’ questions) and pinned blame on all the people responsible (although no one so much as lost their job), determining the attacks were “a failure of imagination” because “I don’t think anyone could envision flying airplanes into buildings ” except the Pentagon and FEMA and NORAD and the NRO.
The DIA destroyed 2.5 TB of data on Able Danger, but that’s OK because it probably wasn’t important.
The SEC destroyed their records on the investigation into the insider trading before the attacks, but that’s OK because destroying the records of the largest investigation in SEC history is just part of routine record keeping.
This man never existed, nor is anything he had to say worthy of your attention, and if you say otherwise you are a paranoid conspiracy theorist and deserve to be shunned by all of humanity. Likewise him, him, him, and her. (and her and her and him).
Osama Bin Laden lived in a cave fortress in the hills of Afghanistan, but somehow got away. Then he was hiding out in Tora Bora but somehow got away. Then he lived in Abottabad for years, taunting the most comprehensive intelligence dragnet employing the most sophisticated technology in the history of the world for 10 years, releasing video after video with complete impunity (and getting younger and younger as he did so), before finally being found in a daring SEAL team raid which wasn’t recorded on video, in which he didn’t resist or use his wife as a human shield, and in which these crack special forces operatives panicked and killed this unarmed man, supposedly the best source of intelligence about those dastardly terrorists on the planet. Then they dumped his body in the ocean before telling anyone about it. Then a couple dozen of that team’s members died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.
If you have any questions about this story…you are a batshit, paranoid, tinfoil, dog-abusing baby-hater and will be reviled by everyone. If you love your country and/or freedom, happiness, rainbows, rock and roll, puppy dogs, apple pie and your grandma, you will never ever express doubts about any part of this story to anyone. Ever.
Exclusive Interview: Lost in a Yemen Jail ! A DB Staffer Speaks About His Long, Strange Trip and the Secret Gulags America Has Built in the Middle East and Africa
Sunday, August 28, 2011 – with Anthony Wile
Coming across the border of Yemen for some reason, a top Daily Bell gnome predictably (you really can't send them anywhere) attacked a senior Yemen official with gustatory intentions. The ravenous gnome was then taken into custody and remanded to the second-most secure jail in all of Yemen, a political jail complete with dungeons, blindfolds and hundreds of incarcerated supposed al Qaeda prisoners. Foolish gnome! President Saleh's police state was not created for his nutritional needs!
Daily Bell: We're going to treat this interview as if we don't know you or even, for the most part, what happened. So let's begin with the most important question. Are you really a gnome?
Gnomish Staffer: Some days it feels so.
Daily Bell: What the hell were you doing in Yemen?
Staffer: Crossing over the border in a smuggler's truck. They smuggle gas from Oman next door where it's cheaper.
Daily Bell: So this is a true story?
Staffer: You can make up your own mind about the gnome – but the jail part is true. All that I'm going to relate here is the truth as I saw it and recall it. I was held in Yemen in a political jail.
Daily Bell: Yes, you were incarcerated for a month …
Staffer: Seemed longer.
Daily Bell: Where were you taken first?
Staffer: Near the Oman boarder. They questioned me at a secret location.
Daily Bell: Who were "they?"
Staffer: They were President Ali Abdullah Saleh's secret police. He has a network across the country along with extensive security infrastructure. It includes secret police stations, jails and of course, a truly national force of informers, watchers, police and secret security police.
Daily Bell: Sounds expensive.
Staffer: Well, that's the point. One might think Yemen is chaotic – and it is. But the security apparatus is functioning with precision.
Daily Bell: Who pays for such an expensive operation?
Staffer: The Americans must be paying for it in some way. It's an entirely professional operation.
Daily Bell: What did they want from you?
Staffer: Since I had come across the boarder incognito – a mistake I immediately admitted and apologized for – they believed the CIA or some such organization was sponsoring me as a spy. They were asking questions.
Daily Bell: Did you answer?
Staffer: They told me I would be under the authority of Yemen's laws and regulations. So, I was reluctant. I wanted to speak to the American Embassy first to find out the legality.
Daily Bell: You're not much for state representation. Did you find your situation ironic?
Staffer: Philosophically, I think government should get out of the way. But when you're sitting with six unshaven Yemen secret police in dirty robes going through your belongings and threatening you, you tend to want any edge you can get.
Daily Bell: What did they say when you wouldn't answer their questions?
Staffer: They said they were sending me to Saana to the political jail there and "God help you."
Daily Bell: Sounds grim. What did you want to do there, anyway?
Staffer: Well, I've visited numerous countries' capitals in the past two years. Caracas, Medellin, Panama City, Montevideo, Nairobi, Muscat and now Saana … Traveling broadens the mind and DB has benefited considerably, in my view, from my journeys. Of course, in Yemen, I didn't see much after the first day except via a window of an SUV partially obscured by automatic rifles. After they questioned me at the border, I spent the night on a pallet in the local cell in handcuffs. They were going to make me sleep with my hands cuffed behind my back, but I managed to convince them to move the handcuffs to the front.
Daily Bell: Sounds uncomfortable.
Staffer: You try it. I managed to sleep. But that was when I went on a hunger strike. Not that they noticed, or not initially.
Daily Bell: So, off you went to Saana.
Staffer: Yes, one of the oldest and most intriguing cities in the world – with the old city itself built in the mouth of an inactive volcano.
Daily Bell: Wow, a real tourist spot.
Staffer: Funny thing, no one is visiting Yemen these days for the tourism. I didn't see much of Saana. From the plane, they took me directly to the political prison. I later found out there was one worse version but this one was pretty bad. I spent the night three floors down in a solitary jail cell. I refused food and water, which caused the guards much surprise.
Daily Bell: How were the guards generally?
Staffer: They were young men, very gaunt and just as oppressed as the prisoners in their own way. They were paid US$100 a month and locked into the prison every night, as I understand it. A lot of them choose to run away when they get the chance.
Daily Bell: Are they part of Saleh's army?
Staffer: Yes, some 500,000 strong but mostly conscripts. If there is a big challenge to Saleh, the soldiers will likely run away. Social stability is not one of Yemen's strong points at the moment.
Daily Bell: What happened the next morning?
Staffer: They moved me to a group dungeon with others.
Daily Bell: And who were they?
Staffer: Throughout my stay, I was with the most intensely spiritual young men I've ever had the privilege to meet. In Islam, you pray with your toes touching. There were no shoes allowed on the dingy carpets. The guards would lock you in and then you would stand up in a row toe to toe and the leader (by acclimation) would recite prayers. During Ramadan, the prayers might take up to an hour. In between, they would read the Koran, chanting to themselves. Some had memorized all or most of the Koran.
Daily Bell: They sound fanatical.
Staffer: No, not fanatical. They were the most generous youngsters you'd ever want to meet. Islam mandates that you share what you have, and they were literally giving me the shirts off their backs because I had been put into my cell without much in the way of clean clothing. They gave me toothpaste and soap and towels. They tried to give me food but I generally stayed on my little hunger strike for most of the month. I found it made the jail manager nervous. He was always trying to get the doctor to take my blood pressure. It was sort of funny, really. I told the doctor once that I had lost about 25 pounds and he translated it into kilograms and started to laugh. He didn't take it seriously. Others told me if I hadn't been an American, they wouldn't have cared at all. People go into comas there from hunger strikes and they just ignore them or pick them up, carry them to the hospital and force feed them. And there were other things I heard about. People who made too much noise were handcuffed and then tazered on their handcuffs – which causes comas as well. And other young people suspected of being al Qaeda were being hung from their hands and forced to stay awake for days at a time.
Daily Bell: How did they handle it?
Staffer: With the resignation of youth. And with religious conviction. There was nothing much to do in jail. They wouldn't let you have games or pens or paper. So, you read the Koran and prayed.
Daily Bell: Did you read the Koran?
Staffer: It was in Arabic, but I had many good conversations about the Koran and Islam. I was intensely moved by these young people, some of them only 18 or 19, who had been captured and taken to this prison to be interrogated by the Americans who were deciding who is al Qaeda and who is not.
Daily Bell: Did the Americans know about the torture and all the rest?
Staffer: I cannot imagine they did not.
Daily Bell: Did they condone it?
Staffer: The Americans were regular questioners of inmates at that jail. And others as well.
Daily Bell: They were part of the process?
Staffer: They seemed to be, from what I heard.
Daily Bell: So there is an al Qaeda?
Staffer: There is a Jihadist movement, which is more than I was prepared to admit when I went to Yemen. But something is building in the Middle East – assiduously fanned by the West, I might add. It was reconceived byOsama bin Laden, though in my mind he was certainly a CIA-affiliated asset.
Daily Bell: Explain, please …
Staffer: Well … what are the chances that the son of the Bush family's main business contact in Saudi Arabia – a family that is worth billions – suddenly becomes a fanatical, fundamentalist Muslim and then supposedly blows up the World Trade Towers? Pretty coincidental, I'd say. And there are plenty of stories of bin Laden traveling to the US in the 1990s under the name of Tim Osman to recruit for his cause, a cause apparently sponsored by the CIA. After all, the CIA seemingly was responsible for aggregating the original so-called al Qaeda in the 1980s when they were recruiting young radicals to fight the Russians in Afghanistan. They collected a data base that they called the base – as in al Qaeda. It was a "list." The CIA seems obviously involved in the inception of al Qaeda, though they deny it strenuously.
Daily Bell: Were you surprised by the number and amount of al Qaeda you met?
Staffer: I was surprised by the signs hanging around the necks that said "al Qaeda." Just kidding. You would never know who was al Qaeda at that jail and who was not. A very few admitted to being al Qaeda. Most of these young men were simply impoverished, unlucky and deeply religious.
Daily Bell: What distinguishes al Qaeda from others?
Staffer: Apparently, those who might be considered Jihadists – I'm reluctant to use the term al Qaeda – are those who seek a return of the Caliphate to the Middle East. This means a return to the original Sunni Islam tenets of Mohammad, the Messenger. They will do this via a Sura. Six highly esteemed members of society will choose the nation's leader and he will be responsible for the new Muslim state. Anybody can come there of any religion to live and that person will not be oppressed in any way nor pressured to change his or her religion. Jews especially are highly esteemed in the Koran and set above Christians and even other Muslims.
Daily Bell: That's a surprising perspective.
Staffer: There's lots that is surprising about fundamentalist Islam. As we've argued at DB, the truth is not being told about what's going in the Middle East. For instance, Islam – Sunni Islam, anyway – is in many ways the least intrusive religion you could ever belong to. Taxes in the West are above 50 percent, all in all, for many people. Islam has almost no taxes, certainly not an income tax. Un-apostated islam has no central banking, either. Gold and silver are considered money – not fiat paper. The state in many ways basically leaves you alone, though Sharia law is to be administered by Islamic Courts appointed by the leader of the nation.
Daily Bell: Isn't Sharia law fairly barbaric?
Staffer: It has perhaps been applied in a barbaric way in modern times, but inherently it is not barbaric as it takes up to four male witnesses to get anything done. So, even if you are involved in adultery, you have to be caught in the act by four male Muslims of the appropriate age, and they have to be willing to stand up in an Islamic Court and bear witness to the transgression. And if any one of them has only seen you, say, getting dressed in the bedroom rather than being caught in the act, then that testimony doesn't count. So the standard of proof to apply the more significant parts of Sharia law come with an immensely high standard.
Daily Bell: What's the point then?
Staffer: Well, the punishments – lashings and stonings – are fairly significant. They are intended to scare people more than they are intended to be applied, or so people told me. The threat is supposed to keep people in line. But the real threat is religious. Allah knows all of your transgressions and keeps the book of your life. If you are not a good Muslim, you can experience hell fire. An apostate may never go to Heaven with all of its delights.
Daily Bell: What is an apostate?
Staffer: The Jihadists would argue that all of the modern Middle East regimes are apostated – that is, none of them are applying Islam as it ought to be applied. There is not therefore a single Muslim state in the world. Those who believe in a return to the original message of Mohammed want to establish an Islamic state as Israel established a Jewish one.
Daily Bell: But they want to do so violently?
Staffer: Strangely enough, the fundamentalists have been trying to make peace with America for years. In Yemen, there have apparently been numerous suggestions of ceasefires, etc., but the Americans always turn them down.
Daily Bell: You know this for a fact?
Staffer: I was told this independently on numerous occasions.
Daily Bell: What's the alternative?
Staffer: Well, the alternative is a kind of war. In Abyan Province in the South of Yemen, the Americans are shelling certain urban areas on a daily basis – places where rebellious tribesmen and al Qaeda are said to be. They are sending in Saudi and American planes as well, and at night they are apparently sending in SEALS with night-fighting equipment. This is a significant illegal action. America apparently has numerous troops on the ground on a nightly basis – and yet you read nothing about this is the mainstream press. America is very far gone now, from a truth-telling standpoint. Almost everything reported in the mainstream press in America and even the West is a lie of some sort, or at least a fudge. The purpose is always the same – to promote world government. In fact, the more the Internet tells the truth, the more the mainstream press does not. It's as if the elite banking families that run the world are trying to counteract the truth with lies and distortions.
Daily Bell: Shouldn't Congress pass some sort of resolution if the Pentagon is sending troops into harm's way in Yemen?
Staffer: You would think so. My theory is that with all the wiretapping and general intimidation down in Washington, it takes a very strong Congressman to stand up and speak the truth about anything. And many Congressmen are likely sociopaths of some sort anyway, ones who worked to get elected to line their pockets and not to serve their constituents – as if anything in Washington could be construed as "service."
Daily Bell: Back to the Yemen strife. What does America hope to accomplish?
Staffer: America and the Saudis want to damp down the fundamentalist movement in Yemen, though in my view it's one that the Western intelligence agencies bolstered in the first place.
Daily Bell: Why would they do such a thing?
Staffer: Obviously to take away more freedoms in the West. The target on this mostly phony war on terror, in my view, is the West and the middle class. The elites have been after middle class freedoms for over a century. With the war on terror, they have has a reason to escalate considerably. The Patriot Act, with all of its reductions in what was left of freedom in the US, was written before 9/11. During its signing they had the military patrolling the corridors of Congress with guns. Congressmen were intimidated. The situation in America and the West has gotten no better since then. The great families want world government and they are willing to remove any freedoms they need to in order to get it.
Daily Bell: So the war on terror has little to do with al Qaeda?
Staffer: In the prison I was in, people told me over and over that America and Yemen were actually producing radicalized young men with their incarceration policies.
Daily Bell: How did that work?
Staffer: I personally met only one man who claimed to be a legitimate member of al Qaeda in a jail that supposedly was chock full of al Qaeda. The rest were young men, mostly, who had the misfortune of holding somewhat fundamentalist, or at least enthusiastic, views about Islam.
Daily Bell: Thought crimes, in other words.
Staffer: Sure. Some examples. A shopkeeper from Kenya who was taken prisoner some six months ago for speaking to someone who held fundamentalist views 17 years before. He was put in an even worse prison than the one I was in. The worst prison in Yemen, where all the hard-core Jihadists are supposedly locked up. He said it consisted of single, individual cells – it was dungeonlike, in other words – and that you were not let out even to go to the bathroom except occasionally. He said the primary entertainment consisted of sitting on a ratty mattress watching your urine pool in front of you. After several months of this, he was moved to the prison where I was. By then he'd developed severe high blood pressure. It was aggravated by the interrogations. He said he was always being dragged in front of Americans from the embassy and that his questioners included one Asian man, apparently from the CIA, who was always shouting at him that he would spend the rest of his life in prison if he didn't reveal information that he knew. The trouble was that he was only a shopkeeper and didn't know anything. His last significant Islamic conversation occurred 17 years ago. He was desperate to get out because he had a business and a family and his business was in ruins after nine months.
Daily Bell: Why didn't they let him go?
Staffer: Well, this is the sad part. The entire political prison system in Yemen is built on the idea that there are many al Qaeda who need to be identified. Thus, the Americans may pay a bounty for such people – of one sort or another – and the Yemeni authorities are glad to oblige by fueling the charade with innocent people.
Daily Bell: Any other examples?
Staffer: Tons. There was a young Nigerian there with a two wives who had studied at an Islamic center that had been shut down. He himself had no connections to fundamentalist Islam, but when he came to pick up his passports – which the jail had been holding – they arrested him and he'd been there about three months when I met him.
Daily Bell: Others?
Staffer: Two brothers I spent time with, both from Iraq and Yemen. The one brother had gone rabbit hunting with a fellow who expressed some fundamentalist views. The fundamentalist was arrested, though he later escaped. But he mentioned the brother's name and the brother was picked up and incarcerated. He was an engineer. Later his brother was picked up. His brother was a schoolteacher. Neither apparently had a history of Jihadist associations. But they were eventually sentenced to ten years apiece by the Yemen courts.
Daily Bell: Didn't they have representation?
Staffer: Perhaps. Who knows? It doesn't matter much. There are no real laws in Yemen. There is no burden of proof. You can be picked up and interrogated and if you have the wrong associations, for whatever reason, you can be held for years without a trial. This is happening in Saudi Arabia, too, where they will now pick you up on hearsay and then arrest your father and brothers as well – on general principles. The Saudi jails are very nice, I hear, much nicer then the Yemen ones, with clean carpets, TVs on the walls and all the food you can eat. But the end result is even worse. The Saudis will hold you up to five years or more without a trial. There were some Yemenis that had just been released into Yemeni custody and I spoke to them. The Saudis were actually willing to hold them longer but their families came up after five years and made a big fuss, protesting outside of the jail. The Saudis finally let them go.
Daily Bell: Sounds horrible despite the "comforts."
Staffer: It is entirely evil. We're gradually returning to the era of Star Chambers and guilty until proven innocent. What makes it more evil in my view is that the West – specifically America – is behind it. The Americans told the Kenyan shopkeeper – or so he told me – that they had numerous jails all over the Middle East and Africa that they controlled and that there was no escape for him. If he was released and returned to Kenya he might find himself in a Kenyan political jail soon enough, also controlled by America.
Daily Bell: Weren't the CIA and Pentagon pressured to stop building these kinds of jails?
Staffer: You mean rendition centers? That's what they are. They are places where you have no rights and all judicial systems are suspended. That America still operates them and is still building them is symptomatic of how far the rot has spread. They just built one in Somalia. The American military-industrial complex is entirely out of control. It is only a matter of time before what it is visiting on other countries is visited on America as well. Americans are naïve if they think they can duck their heads into the sand and avoid the sight of what is undoubtedly headed their way. These sorts of profoundly anti-freedom policies are no accident. They are part and parcel of the way those at the top of the American military and intelligence establishment actually think.
Daily Bell: Rendition is supposed to be a thing of the past.
Staffer: I've been thinking about that. In Yemen, anyway, the Americans are hiding behind Yemeni so-called justice. Even the two nice people at the American Embassy who came to see me – and I have thanked them several times for the work they did on my behalf – were convinced that they could not interfere with the Yemen judicial system. I voiced my opinion on this several times to them. The Americans are basically running Yemen, not the Yemenis, I insisted.
Daily Bell: Did they respond?
Staffer: Actually, no. They just switched the subject. Or stared. It's not an issue that invites rational discussion.
Daily Bell: How many times did you see them?
Staffer: Only twice for about an hour altogether in about a month's time. They said they were working behind the scenes and I believe them. I got out in a month. Some others are still waiting to leave after years – and these individuals are the ones that have been told they will be going. I was lucky. Also, I was from America and that helped enormously. Saleh's entire government is scared of Americans from what I can tell.
Daily Bell: Saleh's not there, though.
Staffer: Saleh was blown up, perhaps by the Americans, and now he's in Saudi Arabia and who knows if he is coming back. The Saudis communicate what they wish strategically and then the Americans decide whether or not to implement it. That's how it appears to work.
Daily Bell: Do you have any proof the Americans are running Yemen?
Staffer: There was one fellow I spoke to – or at least heard about from several others – who was called 'the Bedouin.' He was asked by Saleh five years ago to make peace with the fundamentalists. One of his brothers apparently had something to do with blowing up the Hood. Anyway, he had significant contacts. He started to reach out to about five fundamentalist leaders – all dead now – and then the CIA flew a fellow over from Washington, DC to speak to him.
Daily Bell: What did he say?
Staffer: He told the Bedouin that he could not make peace with the five fundamentalists he was speaking to. There were larger issues that had to be taken into account. Anyway, the Bedouin refused and the CIA man said he would have to stay in jail until he reconsidered. The Bedouin appealed to Saleh, and Saleh was extremely apologetic, as he should have been. But he told the Bedouin that there was nothing he could do. If the Americans wanted to remand the Bedouin to jail, off he would go. Years later, he's still in jail and still refusing to cooperate with the CIA. He has a TV in his cell as a consolation and can see visitors in the morning. He can also move about certain portions of the jail at will. But he's still a prisoner because he wouldn't cooperate with the CIA. The CiA told him, by the way, that they would build him up in the press and he would become a very big man, a hero, if he cooperated with them.
Daily Bell: Did he believe that?
Staffer: I don't know. But he is more than a little peeved at the Americans and at the CIA. The larger issue is the control that America asserts – not just in Yemen. I figured out finally this is going on all over the Middle East and Africa – the United Arab Emirates, Bharain, Oman, Kenya, Nigeria, Niger, now Libya. The Americans and NATO – the West, in other words, at the behest of the major Western banking families – have built a virtual Gulag throughout the region. They hide behind the local police as they do in Yemen and this provides them with deniability. Nonetheless, the Americans in particular have assiduously set up a rights-free Gulag of sorts. There are thousands, tens of thousands, of innocent young men being picked up in this dragnet every year who've done nothing wrong except perhaps to be enthusiastically spiritual and to focus closely on becoming good Muslims.
Daily Bell: This must be a costly endeavor, when you think about it.
Staffer: It is costly and it's just plain weird. The American taxpayer has footed the bill for this transcontinental Gulag and it runs into the billions, perhaps hundreds of billions, every year. It's scooping young, innocent men off the sidewalk and returning them years later as embittered enemies of the West. It's a virtual campaign to radicalize the youth of Islam and it's no coincidence, in my view. The great banking families want radical Islam. They want a war between East and West, at least a cold war if not a hot one. Again, it's part of building world government. The more chaos and hate that's being spread, the more you need the trans-national organizations such as the IMF, World Court and UN. The globalists' solutions have all been constructed. Now you just need enough problems to activate them.
Daily Bell: Do you think it will come to that?
Staffer: Well … let's look at the realities. The dictators being deposed in the Middle East are all secular. Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, Ben Ali of Tunisia, Muammar Gaddafi of Libya – all of them are non-Islamic types. And what will come about now? Probably the Muslim Brotherhood in one way or another. The Brotherhood is apparently penetrated and to a degree controlled by the CIA. So you have the spectacle of the West actively deposing secularists in order to replace them with controllable Muslim entities. Of course, it won't be portrayed that way in the West. The Muslim Brotherhood will be painted as a radical sect that poses an immediate danger to the West.
Daily Bell: But it won't?
Staffer: Not really in my opinion. Also, the Islamist-type countries may be set against the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries – Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. Jordan and Morocco just applied to the GCC. If America won't stand for yet another Middle East war, you can always have one by proxy. America and NATO will control both sides from afar. This is no idle hypothesis. I'm told you can find white papers written on this subject from several prestigious Middle Eastern think tanks. That's how they operate. They write down what's coming up in the next few years. That way they can't be accused of conspiracy. If something happens, it seems more or less predictable because it HAS been predicted.
Daily Bell: OK, an interesting supposition anyway. But what about al Qaeda?
Staffer: Al Qaeda in Yemen, especially, provides us with an uncertain situation. At this point one could argue that al Qaeda has served its purpose. The West no longer wants a Jihadist movement when it can be replaced with something a good deal more controllable – the Muslim Brotherhood, which advocates democratic elections unlike al Qaeda. On the other hand, the form of Islam that al Qaeda advocates is growing in popularity in the Middle East. There are fundamentalists throughout Yemen, in numerous cities, and in Saudi Arabia as well, or so I was told. What the West may have created will not be easily put back to sleep. It is very hard to say, especially when it comes to Yemen, which has 30 unruly tribes and a Southern region that wants to secede.
Daily Bell: If you had to sum up this incident in your life how would you do it?
Staffer: I tend to be a fairly insular person. Writing for DB – especially as many articles and other kinds of writing as I do – I don't get out a lot even when I travel. I've experienced a great deal but mostly by accident on my travels. I certainly wouldn't have spent time in a Yemen jail at the expense of my writing if I could help it. I'm about to post two libertarian fiction books to Kindle and there are many other things going on my life. You, Anthony Wile, are to be congratulated for stepping up and actually raising the bar on the Bell's writing and analysis. But it would never have been my choice to stop writing for a month after having written every day for the past 45 years. I also want to thank you for working tirelessly to get me out. I know without your efforts I would still be there.
Daily Bell: We weren't going to leave you there.
Staffer: Well, thanks. I knew you were working hard on my behalf and it was very comforting. Having said that, my experience in the Yemen political prison opened my eyes more fully to the vastness of Western manipulations being perpetrated on the Middle East and actually the entire world. The charade of Muslim terrorism has morphed into an entire Gulag in which young men are being dragooned into what is essentially a work of fiction.
Daily Bell: You see it as a kind of directed history …
Staffer: There is increasingly little doubt in my mind that for at least the past 100-200 years the world has experienced the fullness of directed history. No single event is what it seems; no explanation suffices for the wars, depressions and political and economic depredations that the world suffers from. Every disaster, every challenge, seems to bring world government closer. It's increasingly obvious. They're not even trying to hide it. Western military and intelligence agencies are fully behind these manipulations, in my view. The great banking families are directing them. The hope for the world, as we've pointed out time and again, is the Internet Reformation, for the truth-telling of the Internet is blowing up power elite memes as fast as they can be implemented.
Daily Bell: Did those in the prison see it this way as well, at least as concerning Islam and the war on terror?
Staffer: To a large degree, yes, though many strangely enough were convinced of the leadership of bin Laden, etc. This was confusing to me until I realized that those at the top of a controlled war needn't share their views with the rank and file. They go through the motions and those beneath tend to believe what they're told. The Middle East actually has a history of this sort of treachery going back to the Persian Hashshashin movement.
Daily Bell: Any final thoughts?
Staffer: Just that I was incredibly moved by the young people I met who were so generous and kind in the face of adversity. They named me Jonah after Jonah and the whale – the whale being the jail. This is the sort of metaphorical plane on which their minds worked. They knew nothing of rock and roll. They sing and chant the Koran, which is one of the great works of literature of all time. Thus, these young people were steeped in the metaphor of classical literature. Where their peers in the West were singing along to Britney Spears, these young people were speaking and thinking within the ambit of a much different perspective. It was like living among young men who saw the world through the eyes of, say, Shakespeare, a truly unusual experience, like living within a real-life anachronism. The nobility of their morality and the greatness of its expression was a kind of out-of-body experience for me. It also made me understand how so many young people can blow themselves up when facing an enemy. Between praying five times a day and generally being bathed in this resonant, classical expression of the Koran, one's socialization becomes entirely focused on the Islamic message. If Islam demands a blood sacrifice, such people will provide it. Their socialization will support it.
Daily Bell: It sounds quite intense. Before we let you go, we need to ask you how you were finally released.
Staffer: They called me out to have me take an inventory of my possessions. Usually they would blindfold you and handcuff you for interrogation purposes. But this time, they let me walk through the jail in a very relaxed way. That night they drove me to the airport in an SUV just the way I came in. A young man from the American Embassy was waiting there for me and filled me in on my release and where I was headed – thanks in large part to your efforts. Then I got on a plane and left Yemen behind.
Daily Bell: Did you unwind on the plane?
Staffer: I asked for a scotch.
Daily Bell: Did you get it?
Staffer: No. They weren't serving liquor.
Daily Bell: It's quite a story. Thanks for presenting it. Don't do it again.
Staffer: I didn't intend to do it the first time. However, I would like to dedicate this interview to the young men who were so kind to me and are unlawfully incarcerated in such jails throughout the Middle East and Africa, often apparently with American support – financial and otherwise. It should end; it must end.
Well, this has been quite a month. But our prodigal gnome has returned and he has quite a story to tell as you can see. We hope you enjoyed it – or were at least moved by it and the serious message that it conveyed.
The point being made is a profound one; what is being visited on the Middle East will not long be confined to that area. What is being done there will soon be visited on the West itself. There is no use fooling one's self about this.
The profound illegality and evil that is being visited on the Middle East and Africa will soon find a firm foothold in the West if its march is not radically slowed or even halted. The war on terror is being used as a way to erode Western freedoms, some of which go back centuries.
We hope the alternative 'Net press continues to raise the alarm about these and other such issues. There is no alternative. These issues must be raised and addressed, preferably on a daily basis. What is going on is wrong. No amount of justification can make it right.
Cognitive Dissonance: “A condition of conflict or anxiety resulting from inconsistency between one's beliefs and one's actions, such as opposing the slaughter of animals and eating meat.”
In a more down to earth definition, one could say it is the inability to pursue, or believe, information one does not want to believe, and it is causing the International Bankers much glee. They spread lies like flies in Canada. And, the dissonant American’s lap it up like free booze, but only because they are incapable of recognizing the truth.
Maybe I should say stupidity has something to do with it, but that would offend my readers, who are equality guilty of hanging on to the great American myth that we are the Land of the free, and the home of the Brave. Nothing could be further from the truth, as anyone with more than an inch between their ears would know. America, just like any other Nation is, and has been under the influence of the Bankers liars for hundreds of years. Forget what you learned in social studies and television news, then, just maybe, your mind will start wondering why One and One don’t make Two anymore.
The whole world only has only one evil leader and his name is Satan, the devil, Lucifer, and many others. Just like the one true God has many names, so does the evil one, and if he could influence the angles, how much easier can he influence us dumb and depraved humans? I am really having a hard time with my fellow Christians for falling for the fear factor our government imposes on our minds. Be careful, or the ragheads will steal our country! Hell fire! The ragheads are no different than any other nationality, they only want the same thing’s we do, peace, riches, security, and freedom from tyrannical governments. And the influence from the Koran is no different than the influence from our true word of God, the Holy Bible, it’s only used by a very small minority of humanity.
Personally, I don’t want anything besides salvation, as being in the presence of God would tickle me pink. But, while I’m on this earth I intend to do everything I can to foil the devil’s plans to control the whole earth. If you want to, or can, focus on the International Bankers as your enemy. Then, and only then, will you begin to see how we have been divided and beguiled from the cradle. You must get out of this attachment to what you want to believe if you are ever to learn the truth about who is America’s enemy. If you are short on the time needed to do the research on your own, then follow my web, & blog sites, as I spend 80 hours a week doing the work for you. Granted it is a lot to learn, but your mind was not intended to be a toy, USE IT!
TO KILL A SNAKE, CUT OFF ITS HEAD!
America must focus on the real enemy or freedom from a global government will never be obtained, and That will be Hell on Earth!
Children herded like cattle into Maryland courthouse for forced vaccinations
as armed police and attack dogs stand guard
Curtsey of Jackie Juntti at WGEN: email firstname.lastname@example.org
James Alan Daum is one of the very hardest working patriotic Americans I know. His knowledge of Law and such won him a very large settlement against police tactics and the like. Anyway, this is so important it cannot be over stressed. It is the state of the union and the fact that every official involved – and this in my mind means every last one at every level as each is under Oath to stop such actions – committed treason and did so through state-sponsored domestic terrorism.
Normally, I don't forward general information but this particular article is of interest to me even though it is sensationalism without giving the sort of facts that I need to determine the issue.

The State of Maryland has now turned to Gestapo tactics to force its medical will upon the People, stripping parents of any right to decide how they wish to protect their own children from infectious disease. Health authorities there have already announced their intent to essentially kidnap parents and throw them in jail, removing them from their children for up to thirty days if they continue to refuse to have their children vaccinated. This will all be conducted at gunpoint, with armed personnel and attack dogs at the ready, making sure nobody steps out of line, and suppressing any attempt at public dissent against the Orwellian vaccination policies.
The entire campaign against these parents is blatantly illegal. There is no law in Maryland requiring the vaccination of children, thus parents who refuse to do so may not be legally charged with violating any law. Instead, Maryland health and school authorities are using Gestapo-like tactics, threatening to charge the parents with child truancy violations, criminalizing them for daring to protect their children from the dangerous chemicals found in vaccines (including thimerosal, a chemical additive containing a neurotoxic form of mercury).
The desperation of organized medicine is becoming increasingly apparent
As more and more parents are becoming informed about the dangers of vaccinations and their link to autism, state health authorities are increasingly turning to "Gunpoint Medicine" to force the People to submit to the poisons of conventional medicine. Parents who attempt to save their children from deadly chemotherapy chemicals are being arrested and having their children kidnapped by Child Protective Services (see http://www.naturalnews.com/Abraham_Cherrix.html ), and oncologists who used to be armed only with radiation machines and chemotherapy injectors and now arming themselves with U.S. Marshals and other local law enforcement authorities who are using loaded firearms to enforce "the will of the State" against parents who resist.
Even the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) announced its strong opposition to the Maryland "Gunpoint Medicine" vaccination campaign. In a press release published Nov. 16, the AAPS states:
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons today condemned the “vaccine roundup” executed in Prince George’s county Maryland this week, and promised to do everything it can to support parents who refuse to immunize their children.
“This power play obliterates informed consent and parental rights,” said Kathryn Serkes, director of policy for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), one of the few national physician groups that refuse corporate funding from pharmaceutical companies.
In a scenario reminiscent of cattle round-ups, the state’s attorney has issued summons to more than 1600 parents of children who have not provided certificates of immunization for their children. But instead of toting a cattle prod, this state’s attorney chooses to wield a syringe to keep the “herd” in line.

Gunpoint Medicine: Why drug pushers must now rely on Gestapo tactics
Conventional (pharmaceutical) medicine is the only system of medicine in the world that is so unpopular with informed consumers that it must be administered at the barrel of a gun. There is no other system of medicine anywhere in the world that resorts to such tactics to recruit patients.
At the Nov. 17th event in Maryland, activists Jim Moody and Kelly Ann Davis from SafeMinds (www.SafeMinds.org) were able to get in front of TV news cameras and voice their opposition to the coerced vaccination policy. Yet, amazingly, most parents just lined up like cattle ready to be branded, not bothering to question the sanity or legality of the very system in which they were now agreeing to participate.
A health freedom blog called Center for the Common Interest (www.CommonInterest.info) also covered the event, and it reports that a local activist named Donovan Hubbard videotaped the event and plans to make the video available online. (NaturalNews would like to contact Donovan and / or publicize his video. If you know of a way we can contact him, please call us at (520) 232-9300 to let us know…)
What's next for Gunpoint Medicine?
As the truth continues to emerge about the extreme dangers of vaccinations and pharmaceuticals, Big Pharma is becoming increasingly desperate to coerce the public into relying on its products. It is now working closely with state authorities (including Governors of several states) to mandate the use of vaccinations on young children. This results in the criminalization of parents who refuse to subject their children to these dangerous chemicals.
The FDA has already criminalized nutritional supplement companies who dare to tell the truth about the health benefits of their supplements. (Read the true history of armed FDA raids on vitamin companies here: http://www.naturalnews.com/021791.html )
Next, parents who refuse to subject their children to the chemical pharmaceuticals proposed by Big Pharma will be criminalized, rounded up and incarcerated for "refusing to comply with public health policy." This is all being done by the State in the name of "protecting the children" from their own natural health parents. (Insane, isn't it, to think that protecting your child from toxic chemicals is now a criminal act in the United States?)
The end game of all this is to apply Gunpoint Medicine tactics to everyone: Adults and senior citizens included. Anyone suffering from high cholesterol, for example, who does not submit to Big Pharma's statin drugs could be arrested, strapped to a table and medicated against their will. People with cancer could be arrested for choosing to treat that cancer with safe and effective botanical medicines instead of patented, high-profit Big Pharma drugs. If you think the prisons are full enough right now from all the arrests for marijuana possession and other victimless crimes, just wait until the State starts arresting all the natural health moms and dads across the country who refuse to participate in the utterly insane and extremely harmful system of medicine that now dominates U.S. health care today.
The State is very clear about medicine: If you want to remain a free citizen, you must submit to the synthetic drugs made by the very same corporations that now control government health regulators. Any person who resists such "treatments" will be branded a threat to public health — a designation just beneath "terrorist" in the eyes of many government bureaucrats. As such, they believe there is no limit to the level of force they may use to coerce such people into submitting to Big Pharma's chemicals. Today, it's armed guards with attack dogs. Tomorrow, it might be water boarding or other torture methods. Think that's impossible? Think again: Just five years ago, nobody in their right mind would have thought that parents who did not want to get their children vaccinated would end up in prison, their children kidnapped by state authorities and forced to subject themselves to dangerous chemical injections at gunpoint. Yet that is precisely what is happening right now in the state of Maryland. It happened on Saturday, in fact.
Where is the outrage?
What's most interesting about this issue of using the threat of imprisonment to force vaccinations upon children is not necessarily who is speaking out against it, but who has chosen to remain silent.
The American Medical Association, for example, has said nothing in opposition to the policy. Neither has the Food and Drug Administration. Where is the outrage from the Maryland Hospital Association? None of these organizations seem to have a problem with Gunpoint Medicine. The idea of rounding up parents and coercing their children into receiving injections of toxic chemicals does not seem to bother these organizations. And why should it? All of these organizations are closely tied to Big Pharma. They're all in favor of vaccinations for all, it seems, and I have no doubt that some individuals in these organizations (especially the AMA) are strongly in favor of the Gunpoint Medicine coerced vaccination policy being played out in Maryland right now.
Organized medicine believes the People are too stupid to be allowed to make their own health decisions. Bureaucrats and physicians should be the ones making these decisions, we're told, and any person who disagrees with such decisions should be labeled a criminal, arrested and prosecuted. This is no exaggeration. It is, in fact, a shockingly accurate description of Maryland's current vaccination policy.
It wasn't too long ago that Americans would have stood up and rallied against this kind of medical tyranny. The major news networks would have denounced Maryland's vaccination policy with strong language and harsh accusations. People would have been marching in the streets, demanding their health freedom. But today, it's a different America. The People are drugged up on pharmaceuticals and dosed on fluoride. They're too intoxicated to think straight, and they're frightened into submission by a fear-based government that invokes domestic tyranny at every opportunity to control and manipulate the People into doing whatever it wants.
The "free" America we all once knew is long gone, and it has been replaced with The United States of Corporate America, where police tactics are now used to enforce hazardous public health policies, and the people who run the State no longer think there's anything wrong with rounding up the population at gunpoint and performing large-scale medical experiments on their children. That's what modern vaccines are, after all: A grand medical experiment whose effects will only become known after a generation of mass poisoning has come and gone.
SURELY!, you don't have to wonder what I think of these scumbag bureaucrats. Who the hell gave bureaucrats the right to make and enforce law? Even when it is a State law, it does not conform with the constitution, and is automatically null and void. The States are also under the dictates’ of the United States Constitution. The people have surrendered their Constitutional common law to public policy without a whimper, due to their ignorance of their rights, and a fear based federal policy. The Gestapo government in Washing must be stomped out of existence and a new Declaration of Independence established. OR! You can kiss your freedoms goodbye.
CRISES – A PATH TO TOTALITARIAN RULE
From the article (STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES)
By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.
Most crises, other than natural, are the inventions of devious minds, they are the tools that have been – and will always be – used to seize power, to circumvent laws, to institute control, and to enable undesirable change. A crisis simply means that some person or a group of people has either created or simulated circumstances to influence some event or to promote a desired activity. Adolph Hitler was a master at creating crises, he promoted a series of such that enabled him to establish a fascist despotic rule over a nation and its people, to institute wars upon sovereign nations, to seize territory, to encourage genocide, and to force his will upon a major portion of the world.
In our own society environmentalists manufacture crises to abridge self-determination, to limit personal prerogatives, and to curtail various lawful activities and technical advances of which they autocratically disapprove. These may be identified by a display of obsessive-compulsive behavior when in the presence of chainsaws, bulldozers and construction equipment; they are only at ease while hugging a tree or in the presence of snail darters
Social do-gooders devise crises of various sort to force their personal, often totally selfish and stupid, desires upon their neighbors, upon those who are culturally different, upon the children of families other than their own, and upon businesses and industries who produce and sell products that they personally deem undesirable or inappropriate. The notable feature of them is that their noses are extraordinarily long, an anomaly born of sticking them into the business of others.
And now we come to the most pestilent, the most dangerous, the most consistent, and the most fearsome perpetuator of false crises – the U.S. government. Most everything that the educated morons of our government carry out – on both the administrative and bureaucratic levels – is born of a crisis predicated upon simulated circumstances. That monstrous boondoggle Obamacare is a case in point.
As stated the bureaucrats have honed crises driven encroachments upon your liberties and freedoms to extraordinary lengths. The Food and Drug Administration – our food and drug Nazis – is an excellent example. The agents of this Gestapo- like outfit limits your choice of non-prescription natural supplements; forces the manufacturers of supplements to remove the effective natural constituents of certain supplements so that the sale of these might not inhibit the sales of prescription meds by their bosom buddies the pharmaceutical barons, and tells you what you can and cannot eat, experience or utilize.
There are many hundreds of examples of such phony crises-driven excesses by the various tyrannical bureaus and agencies, but time and space limits the listing of such. But, I would be remiss if I did not point out the fact that it is those who most often do the bidding of the heretofore referred domestic environmentalists and social do-gooders, who are equally responsible. We are indeed surrounded by idiots.
Because of my lack of linguist skills, I have capitalized on Sheriff Schwiesow’s extraordinary talent to set the stage for this less than polite rant, as a more articulate elucidation of this subject could not be composed by any another person whose work I have read.
One of the great benefits of being an extraordinary writer is in accumulating the love and admiration of thousands of people you have never met. In the case of this old misanthropic curmudgeon, obtaining my respect is a considerable accomplishment, and I freely admit to a considerable amount of respectful admiration for this gifted gentleman. Respect is something I hold in reserve for undeniable excellence. He has commented in a past article that some of his readers complain of his high-faluting vocabulary; but who gives a shit what the dull and ignorant think? His vocabulary is an indication of having an excellent memory and high degree of intelligence; something that seems to be lacking in most Americans these days. Including me.
The reason I got so honked off on Jim’s article today is because it is an excellent entry to a subject that has been rubbing a raw spot in my mind for twenty years now, and in one word, it is manipulation. Now manipulation is something any parent or husband has had plenty of exposure too, but coming from people who have power over me, it is an abomination, as bad as having shingles on my brain. It makes my mind hurt. For the upper class, manipulation has been given a new name to differentiate between personal and social manipulation. They call it the Hegelian dialectic and claim it has three stages, as in: “an interpretive method, originally used to relate specific entities or events to the absolute idea, in which an assertable proposition (thesis) is necessarily opposed by its apparent contradiction (antithesis), and both reconciled on a higher level of truth by a third proposition (synthesis)”
This is like giving your daughters girl friends free condoms to keep them safe, with an objective of promoting a promiscuous behavior, and justifying your constant insulting instructions to your daughter to keep her legs crossed, OR. IF YOUR MEMORY IS ASTUTE, hiring a couple of bank robbers in full body armor to instigate a shoot out with under trained and under equipped police officers, with the objective of changing everyone’s opinion of what kind of attitude and armament the officers should have. The result is, swat teams, and an attitude of disrespect for civilian life. It is also the beginning of, the militarization of our countries local law enforcement, and why you see every cop in town carrying an arsenal around their ample bellies. All of this was nothing more than social manipulation, to produce a social acceptance of fear. Along with the twin towers destruction by the manipulators, and the justification of creating the war on terror, Americans are no longer feeling secure with their law enforcers, or lawmakers, who are hell bent on removing our God given rights to be secure in our own homes and in our travels. Our politicians must all be graduates of the university of manipulation, because the bills passed in the last twenty years has produced a hell of a lot of synthesis, and a nation of damn cowards.
Surely by now the reader can figure out without studying anything that our government is, and has been, for a hundred years, our mortal enemy. Here is a great, simple, and fool proof I.Q. test folks. ARE YOU STILL VOTING?
If so, you have poop for brains, because your votes only assist the manipulators in setting up another crooked politician trained in manipulation, for the destruction of liberty. An informed and active population would never have fallen for the atrocities being forced on us by the scumbag employees of the International Investment Banksters.
The way things stand right now, we are about a year away from the end of the federal reserves 100 year contract, which means it will occur during this scumbag presidents reign, and the Banksters are supporting him with wall street money unlimited. Can you imagine OBAMA, and CONGRESS refusing to renew the banksers contract, when they should be defaulting on the banksters, and telling them to go piss up a rope. The Banksters have Obama by the short hairs folks, and all of congress to boot. So here is the bottom line. We have less than a year left to educate and inspire the majority of this country or bend over and kiss our ass goodbye.
WAKE THE HELL UP!
They know what they are doing, and they will be disarming us this year come hell or high water. Then, we will be facing a bunch of traitorous police officers, and Obama’s brainwashed homeland military, to keep a tight lid on any rebellion. Take this to the bank folks, you will be slaves, and I will be dead by next winter. If you have friends or family in law enforcement or the military, you better inform them of their duty to the people, and to hell with the government.
If any government scumbag snitch is reading this, F you, your congressional representatives, and your nappy-headed Dear Leader!
Sorry Jim, I know you do not associate with, or approve of people like me, but I have had all I can take.
