Chaos everywhere as current world order continues to collapse while new age begins
The world situation is becoming increasingly chaotic with major events taking place in Turkey, France, Japan, the United States, China and elsewhere. The events are all linked to the ongoing collapse of the global structure that was put in place at the end of World War 2. Chinese government analysts believe the entire current world architecture will suffer a total systems collapse by the year 2018 after which a new, improved, structure will replace it. For this reason they expect accelerating global turmoil between now and then.
Let us start with a look at the attempted coup d’etat in Turkey last week. Mossad sources tried to pin the attempt on Russia and added “this was just round one.” However, Pentagon sources say jets piloted by Israeli trained Saudi Arabian pilots flying out of the NATO airbase in Incirlik dropped a bright flashing but not very damage causing low grade nuclear weapon in front of the Turkish Parliament building during the attempted overthrow of President Recep Erdogan.
The Pentagon sources suspect Erdogan used light shows like that as part of a staged the coup attempt against himself in order to give him an excuse to purge the Turkish military and law enforcement agencies of rivals. One Pentagon source said that “because Erdogan renewed ties to Mossad and may steal US nukes at Incirlik to arm ISIS, the coup is far from over.”
Chinese government sources, however, had a very different interpretation of events in Turkey. They say the Turkish government was attacked because it was moving away from NATO and towards the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. The Turkish government is also negotiating with the Iranian government to create a Sunni/Shia Muslim alliance and renew the Caliphate. The Khazarian mafia front organization ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) is trying to stop this by creating a fake Caliphate and acting in disgusting ways designed to make everybody hate Muslims. What is at stake is the $2 trillion in oil and gas money coming out of the Middle East every year.
With such high stakes, Erdogan is now a high priority assassination target and we can expect a lot more trouble in the Middle East before the dust settles. However, if Turkey is working in tandem with Iran and mending fences with Russia and Egypt as well, they appear to have the strongest hand.
Now let us take a look at what is happening in France. Here we have a wildly unpopular government staging fake terrorist attacks in order to extend martial law. The government is doing this because the Italian banking system is collapsing and will take the French banking system down with it. So, in order to distract the French people from the financial troubles they need to create a fake external enemy to unify the country around.
Videos of the aftermath of the attack in Nice where a truck supposedly killed 84 people and injured another 200 appear to show a trail of real bodies (gathered up from hospitals around the country?). However, a friend working at the Japanese national broadcaster NHK’s news desk says NHK reported for about 4 hours that the truck in Nice was full of weapons and hand grenades. However, a CNN reporter on the scene reported the weapons were all fake, after which CNN, NHK and others dropped the “full of weapons” meme from their coverage. Then there is the fact the impoverished alleged killer sent $100,000 to his family before the incident.
Also for some reason, the corporate media decided to completely ignore what looks like a spectacular attempt to blow up the Eiffel tower on the same day. Maybe there were too many witnesses to the fakery there so they decided to just pretend that little stunt never happened. A video of this incident has now been deleted from the net, but a photo can be seen here:
No matter what though, the French fascist’s Gladio operations are not going to stop the revolution that is unfolding in that country.
In any case, both the French and Turkish smoke and mirrors shows distracted from far more important events taking place in the Asia. We can confirm from our own CIA and Chinese sources what Neil Keenan has reported about UN Secretary General Bank Ki Moon and David Rockefeller going begging and not getting anything.
We can also add new information about the Emperor of Japan’s announced resignation. Ban Ki Moon was in Korea and China trying to find gold to keep the Rockefeller’s UN Corporation in business and to ask for the job of President of South Korea. He was told to buzz off.
After that David Rockefeller phoned his “old family friend” Emperor Akihito and asked for gold. Akihito told Rockefeller that he was not allowed to do so. Immediately after this phone call took place, the government’s NHK news announced the Emperor, for health reasons, was going to be the first in 200 years to abdicate the throne. A Japanese government official who recently attended a ceremony presided over by the Emperor confirmed he made glaring mistakes during the ceremony and showed signs of senility. The source added that the emperor was exhausted by ongoing negotiations to set up a world government and wanted to pass the job on to his son and heir Naruhito.
Having failed in China, Korea and Japan, The Rockefeller/Bush/Clinton faction of the Khazarian mafia is now going to make a big push to steal gold from Indonesia. CIA sources in Indonesia say that country is at its highest level of military alert as a result. The source adds that the Khazarians are trying to assassinate President Widodo and have offered the Suharto clan (friends of Henry Kissinger) power and wealth if they help overthrow Widodo and the Sukarno clan who support him. The Suharto’s have been told to back off or be killed.
There has also been an attempt by the Khazarians to use tensions in the South China Sea to provoke World War 3 in order to keep themselves in business. The ruling passed against China’s claims in the South China Sea by a UN tribunal is being used to try to provoke a war between the US and China. Admiral Dennis C. Blair, former head of the US Pacific Command told the US Congress on July 13th the US should use force to stop China in the South China Sea. Blair now works for the National Bureau of Asian Research whose corporate sponsors include the Chevron Corporation, ConocoPhillips Company, Ernst&Young, the ExxonMobil Corporation, GE, Microsoft, etc. In other words he works for the Rockefellers.
In any case, the horse trading between China and the US military industrial complex continues with the South China Sea issue being one of the US sides’ best bargaining chips. Following the ruling against China, US Secretary of State John Kerry went to Russia to lobby Vladimir Putin to work with the US against China in the SCS. The US is also approaching India, Vietnam, Japan etc. with this ruling in hand to try to seek help. The Chinese have counter-acted by courting the Europeans and others.
A Chinese government official explained real reason China was taking a stubborn approach to the SCS issue is that the ocean around the submarine base they have on Hainan Island is too shallow for submarines to conceal themselves. That is why they are building submarine bases next to 2000 meter deep water in the South China Sea. The Chinese argue they need that to keep their nuclear deterrent intact and thus prevent anybody from miscalculating they could win a nuclear war against China with a pre-emptive strike.
This South China Sea table thumping is probably going to end with the Chinese accepting a new US naval base on Indonesian Islands in the South China Sea and the Americans allowing the Chinese to build a submarine base located next to deep water.
The Chinese also say they have no interest in using the bankruptcy of the US and Europe to try to impose Chinese hegemony. A top Chinese Red and Blue Society member described China, the US and Europe as like three legs of a table that needed each other to keep the table from falling over.
The US military and agencies and China also have a common enemy in the Khazarian mafia. On this front the Russians and the Vatican are also in agreement. To force the Khazarian mafia to surrender, a missile strike is now being planned on the Rothschild family complex in Zug, Switzerland.
For the sake of future generations, the Rothschilds have been given until July 25th to evacuate all the priceless art treasures they have there. After that, unless the Rothschilds surrender, that complex will be hit, Pentagon officials say.
Other sources have also come forth to say the Rothschilds are only pretending to be separate from the Rockefeller/Bush/Clinton gang and should not be trusted to keep any deal unless they have no other choice.
Also, representatives of the White Dragon Society had meetings with several Asian factions to discuss the 1 ton gold bounty placed by the WDS on certain members of the Khazarian mafia. The WDS explained that the West was like a beautiful woman infected with syphilis and that the Asians need to make sure she takes anti-biotics before getting too friendly.
The Asians agreed and confirmed gold and agents will be made available. Pentagon and agency sources responded to the bounties with requests for more names to be added. So, at Pentagon and agency request a one ton gold bounty will be placed on the people they mentioned:
Jacob de Rothschild, Evelyn de Rothschild, Jay Rockefeller, George Soros, Dick Cheney, Paul Kagan, Henry Kissinger, Angela Merkel, Neil Bush, Jeb Bush, Marvin Bush, Michael Mukasey, Scooter Libby, 911 judge Alvin Hellerstein, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Dov Zakheim, Michael Chertoff, Frank Lowy, Larry Silverstein, Rudolf Giuliani, Michael Bloomberg, Paul Singer, Mark Zuckerberg, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Tony Blair, Haim Saban, Sheldon Adelson, Arnon Milchan, Hank Paulson, Bob Rubin, Sandy Weill (Citigroup) Lloyd Blank-fein (Goldman Sachs), Jamie Dimon (JP Morgan) and Stanley Fischer.
The bankrupt Clinton/Bush/Rockefeller clan is now in such peril that it seems even God is against them. According to CNBC, Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr. and Tony Blair were chased out of a meeting in Arkansas by a tornado, which is most definitely the sort of incident referred to as an “act of God.”

WHAT DO THEY BELIEVE?
To be a real American, one must understand the history of the different kinds of governments, and insist on lawful protections for the people and their assets. That sentence is the epitome of freedom from tyranny, because history has documented how tyrannical most governments have been to their constituents.
Unless the children are raised up with this knowledge being the focus of their attention, sooner or later they will fall pray to demented desires and lean toward democracy because they want to make the world to suit them.
This is called human nature, and the correct teaching of Christian scripture authenticates all humans are born with a depraved nature, and must seek God for redemption. This ideology was prevalent in the beginning of America, but was denigrated by depraved Pastors, and the ever present desire to be in charge of ones depraved mind. Also, many parents were too lazy to study scripture and allowed these depraved Pastors to “bend their minds” so to speak.
This entire problem human beings have with getting along with one another is directly due to their depraved desire to make their own rules, do their own thing, and be in charge!
Any intelligent person can and should study real history so as to know what human traits to follow and avoid, because those who have the compulsion to lead are usually depraved.
Not all men/women are tyrants, but most will struggle with, and find the ability to get people to obey His/Her dictates until they are holding power over the people. Hence, unbreakable provision must be in place before any government comes to power. This is available in plain English in the Bible, and is the not a hindrance to government, or the unbeliever.
I have never heard of a Church forcing people to attend as the depraved know full well they must have a system of division to play one group over another. So, how can a group of doctrinally ignorant people choose a pastor?
THEY CANNOT! Therefore raising up a child in a godly home and school is of upmost importance. Homo sapiens must be converted before they can live in peace.
I do not write this with the confidence I am a born-again Christian, but from the knowledge gained from a compulsive life of studying the train-wreck of demented human-beings that were never educated on the history of man-kind. How can one avoid tyranny if they know not what it is and looks like?
Surreptitious men and women prowl the world looking for followers, knowing full well the power of their gymnastic word-smithing, and these liars abound everywhere, and the only protection from their linguistic narcotics is knowledge of the past.
I believe coupled with the events this generation has personally witnessed; what I have claimed above should be easy to accept. Even if Christianity is no longer acceptable to the majority of this country and generation, something must convince them to avoid being ignorant of the past failures of the Church, the government, and the morals of the people.
Being convinced that only moral people can lead a group of people if freedom is to prevail, I will now itemize some absolutes that history has authenticated must be followed.
(1)As stated above only intelligent and informed people are equipped to be leaders and that should apply to those who vote. One cannot escape the necessity of having learned from past history that a democracy equalizes everyone regardless of their knowledge and negates the votes of the learned person. The results are catastrophic! The person who wants to vote their self some benefit they have not the skill or intelligence to acquire on their own is a burden to everyone else, denigrates freedom, and has no value to the Nation. Supporting the poor is the obligation of the Christian community and those who have more than they need.
(2)A performance bond should be forced on all who occupy government offices, from the President on down. The people must demand total compliance to the Constitution by their elected representatives and all government employees.
(3)As the need for more and more communication between other Nations has increased from the out of control world commerce the Bankers forced on us, an import export equalization must be designed and adhered to, and only bonded people with prior international commerce experience should be allowed to represent the States.
(4)The people’s militias must be reinstated by the states with no control by the National Government and after a period of time if it becomes a necessity a National army-Navy may be formed with permission of all the States, but never allowed to exercise operations falling under the state Militias’ obligations. Only foreign wars are the obligation of the National armed forces and it is the equal by population, obligation of the States to finance an Army-Navy
(5)From past experience it is foolish for the States to surrender any authority to a National government, and must establish said national government with State governors, leaving the obligation of state operations to the deputy Governor.
(6) Public education facilities should be funded and maintained by State Governments but have no authority over the Teachers or administration and every community should have a school staffed by teachers who have attended and excelled in constitutional law. The number of Government supplied buildings for education must conform to each neighborhood population requirements. An agreed on number of students per buildings should be established by a County Government and controlled by County Commissioners. All physical maintenance needs should be by the private sector. School supplies are the responsibility of the parents and when necessary by the County.
(7)All possible means of eliminating control over the people by powerful organizations, both private, Corporate, and Government must be applied in the States Constitutions.
This is going to be an on going project and all readers are welcome to participate with suggestions by email. I will publish your name with each suggestion or withhold it per your choice. Time prevents me from committing to the full and complete document, and it is your country and future to help protect also, besides no one person has the intelligence and experience to be a lone author of this project.

“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison
America is a ticking time bomb.
All that remains to be seen is who—or what—will set fire to the fuse.
We are poised at what seems to be the pinnacle of a manufactured breakdown, with police shooting unarmed citizens, snipers shooting police, global and domestic violence rising, and a political showdown between two presidential candidates equally matched in unpopularity.
The preparations for the Republican and Democratic national conventions taking place in Cleveland and Philadelphia—augmented by a $50 million federal security grant for each city—provide a foretaste of how the government plans to deal with any individual or group that steps out of line: they will be censored, silenced, spied on, caged, intimidated, interrogated, investigated, recorded, tracked, labeled, held at gunpoint, detained, restrained, arrested, tried and found guilty.
For instance, anticipating civil unrest and mass demonstrations in connection with the Republican Party convention, Cleveland officials set up makeshift prisons, extra courtrooms to handle protesters, and shut down a local university in order to house 1,700 riot police and their weapons. The city’s courts are preparing to process up to 1,000 people a day. Additionally, the FBI has also been conducting “interviews” with activists in advance of the conventions to discourage them from engaging in protests.
Make no mistake, the government is ready for a civil uprising.
Indeed, the government has been preparing for this moment for years.
A 2008 Army War College report revealed that “widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.” The 44-page report goes on to warn that potential causes for such civil unrest could include another terrorist attack, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters.”
Subsequent reports by the Department of Homeland Security to identify, monitor and label right-wing and left-wing activists and military veterans as extremists (a.k.a. terrorists) have manifested into full-fledged pre-crime surveillance programs. Almost a decade later, after locking down the nation and spending billions to fight terrorism, the DHS has concluded that the greater threat is not ISIS but domestic right-wing extremism.
Meanwhile, the government has been amassing an arsenal of military weapons for use domestically and equipping and training their “troops” for war. Even government agencies with largely administrative functions such as the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Smithsonian have been acquiring body armor, riot helmets and shields, cannon launchers and police firearms and ammunition. In fact, there are now at least 120,000 armed federal agents carrying such weapons who possess the power to arrest.
Rounding out this profit-driven campaign to turn American citizens into enemy combatants (and America into a battlefield) is a technology sector that is colluding with the government to create a Big Brother that is all-knowing, all-seeing and inescapable. It’s not just the drones, fusion centers, license plate readers, stingray devices and the NSA that you have to worry about. You’re also being tracked by the black boxes in your cars, your cell phone, smart devices in your home, grocery loyalty cards, social media accounts, credit cards, streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, and e-book reader accounts.
All of this has taken place right under our noses, funded with our taxpayer dollars and carried out in broad daylight without so much as a general outcry from the citizenry.
It’s astounding how convenient we’ve made it for the government to lock down the nation.
We’ve even allowed ourselves to be acclimated to the occasional lockdown of government buildings, Jade Helm military drills in small towns so that special operations forces can get “realistic military training” in “hostile” territory, and Live Active Shooter Drill training exercises, carried out at schools, in shopping malls, and on public transit, which can and do fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers and bystanders into thinking it’s a real crisis.
The events of recent years—the invasive surveillance, the extremism reports, the civil unrest, the protests, the shootings, the bombings, the military exercises and active shooter drills, the color-coded alerts and threat assessments, the fusion centers, the transformation of local police into extensions of the military, the distribution of military equipment and weapons to local police forces, the government databases containing the names of dissidents and potential troublemakers—have all conjoined to create an environment in which “we the people” are more distrustful and fearful of each other and more reliant on the government to keep us safe.
Of course, that’s the point.
The powers-that-be want us to feel vulnerable.
They want us to fear each other and trust the government’s hired gunmen to keep us safe from terrorists, extremists, jihadists, psychopaths, etc.
Most of all, the powers-that-be want us to feel powerless to protect ourselves and reliant on and grateful for the dubious protection provided by the American police state.
Their strategy is working.
The tree of liberty is dying.
There will be no second American Revolution.
There is no place in our nation for the kind of armed revolution our forefathers mounted against a tyrannical Great Britain. Such an act would be futile and tragic. We are no longer dealing with a distant, imperial king but with a tyrant of our own making: a militarized, technologized, heavily-financed bureaucratic machine that operates beyond the reach of the law.
The message being sent to the citizenry is clear: there will be no revolution, armed or otherwise.
Anyone who believes that they can wage—and win—an armed revolt against the American police state has not been paying attention. Those who wage violence against the government and their fellow citizens are playing right into the government’s hands. Violence cannot and will not be the answer to what ails America.
Whether instigated by the government or the citizenry, violence will only lead to more violence. It does not matter how much firepower you have. The government has more firepower.
It does not matter how long you think you can hold out by relying on survivalist skills, guerilla tactics and sheer grit. The government has the resources to outwait, out-starve, outman, outgun and generally overpower you.
This government of wolves will not be overtaken by force.
Unfortunately, we waited too long to wake up to the government’s schemes.
We did not anticipate that “we the people” would become the enemy. For years, the government has been warning against the dangers of domestic terrorism, erecting surveillance systems to monitor its own citizens, creating classification systems to label any viewpoints that challenge the status quo as extremist, and training law enforcement agencies to equate anyone possessing anti-government views as a domestic terrorist.
What the government failed to explain was that the domestic terrorists would be of the government’s own making, whether intentional or not.
By waging endless wars abroad, by bringing the instruments of war home, by transforming police into extensions of the military, by turning a free society into a suspect society, by treating American citizens like enemy combatants, by discouraging and criminalizing a free exchange of ideas, by making violence its calling card through SWAT team raids and militarized police, by fomenting division and strife among the citizenry, by acclimating the citizenry to the sights and sounds of war, and by generally making peaceful revolution all but impossible, the government has engineered an environment in which domestic violence has become inevitable.
What we are now experiencing is a civil war, devised and instigated in part by the U.S. government.
The outcome for this particular conflict is already foregone: the police state wins.
The objective: compliance and control.
The strategy: destabilize the economy through endless wars, escalate racial tensions, polarize the populace, heighten tensions through a show of force, intensify the use of violence, and then, when all hell breaks loose, clamp down on the nation for the good of the people and the security of the nation.
So where does that leave us?
Despite the fact that communities across the country are, for all intents and purposes, being held hostage by a government that is armed to the teeth and more than willing to use force in order to “maintain order,” most Americans seem relatively unconcerned. Worse, we have become so fragmented as a nation, so hostile to those with whom we might disagree, so distrustful of those who are different from us, that we are easily divided and conquered.
We have been desensitized to violence, acclimated to a military presence in our communities and persuaded that there is nothing we can do to alter the seemingly hopeless trajectory of the nation. In this way, the floundering economy, the blowback arising from military occupations abroad, police shootings, the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure and all of the other mounting concerns have become non-issues to a populace that is easily entertained, distracted, manipulated and controlled.
The sight of police clad in body armor and gas masks, wielding semiautomatic rifles and escorting an armored vehicle through a crowded street, a scene likened to “a military patrol through a hostile city,” no longer causes alarm among the general populace.
We are fast becoming an anemic, weak, pathetically diluted offspring of our revolutionary forebears incapable of mounting a national uprising against a tyrannical regime.
If there is to be any hope of reclaiming our government and restoring our freedoms, it will require a different kind of coup: nonviolent, strategic and grassroots, starting locally and trickling upwards. Such revolutions are slow and painstaking. They are political, in part, but not through any established parties or politicians.
Most of all, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, for any chance of success, such a revolution will require more than a change of politics: it will require a change of heart among the American people, a reawakening of the American spirit, and a citizenry that cares more about their freedoms than their fantasy games.

Who’s your conspiracy theorist now??….Obama just gave the green light to the UN to use force against Americans in America
We are now an officially occupied nation. The attached executive order was signed July 1, 2016. In collusion with every member of congress, President Obama has forfeited our sovereignty, and commenced the occupation of America by foreign troops issued from the United Nations.
On July 1, 2016 Obama signed an executive order that would allow the UN the right to use force here in America. This order specifically omits any mention of any restriction of use of force on American citizens. But the question remains…..Why is the UN on our land, in our communities and why is our military aligned with them? For what purpose?
For months the reports of convoys on our highways and of train cars loaded with UN and US military equipment have been numerous. These convoys have traversed the country and have alerted a large portion of the country to the potential for a government coup, effectively taking us down. Internet trolls and astroturfer’s paid by companies, by politicians, the government, military contractors and the military itself, stalk the net with the usual “conspiracy theorist” tags and labels in an effort to derail the conversation and to encourage readers to disregard what was in front of them. Those reporting were “delusional”, “paranoid”, “tin foil hat” people….and they didn’t see what they said they saw. Never mind the photos and videos…..they didn’t really see that. Get it?
Simultaneously, the staged false flag events such as Sandy Hook, Boston Marathon, the Pulse Club, to name a few, have occurred in direct correlation to the ongoing attempts to strike down the 2nd Amendment. Its far easier to overthrow and enslave a country if no one has the means to fight back.
Once Homeland Security was established, all of our law enforcement agencies were brought under their control. Then it was declared that anyone who mentioned the Constitution, their rights, or who voted for 3rd party candidates were to be viewed as suspect. Fusion centers were set up across the country to spy on people locally and the massive data collection center was built in Utah that records everything we do. Millions of us are on terror watch lists of all kinds. We are the enemy our own government fears most.
Until we turn in our guns, forfeit our sovereignty and set fire to our Constitution, the staged false flag massacres will continue. In other words, give up America! You have been bought, sold, and traded. And foreign troops are now stationed around the country with the intent of warring with us lest we should be so foolish as to think we are still a free, sovereign nation.
Please read the attached executive order. Not one congress person has objected to or even mentioned this. If you think voting in November will change one iota of what is happening right before your eyes, think again. Vote all you want, the flight plan doesn’t change!
UNITED STATES POLICY ON PRE- AND POST-STRIKE MEASURES TO ADDRESS CIVILIAN CASUALTIES IN U.S. OPERATIONS INVOLVING THE USE OF FORCE
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby direct as follows:
Section 1. Purpose. United States policy on civilian casualties resulting from U.S. operations involving the use of force in armed conflict or in the exercise of the Nation’s inherent right of self-defense is based on our national interests, our values, and our legal obligations. As a Nation, we are steadfastly committed to complying with our obligations under the law of armed conflict, including those that address the protection of civilians, such as the fundamental principles of necessity, humanity, distinction, and proportionality.
The protection of civilians is fundamentally consistent with the effective, efficient, and decisive use of force in pursuit of U.S. national interests. Minimizing civilian casualties can further mission objectives; help maintain the support of partner governments and vulnerable populations, especially in the conduct of counterterrorism and counterinsurgency operations; and enhance the legitimacy and sustainability of U.S. operations critical to our national security. As a matter of policy, the United States therefore routinely imposes certain heightened policy standards that are more protective than the requirements of the law of armed conflict that relate to the protection of civilians.
Civilian casualties are a tragic and at times unavoidable consequence of the use of force in situations of armed conflict or in the exercise of a state’s inherent right of self-defense. The U.S. Government shall maintain and promote best practices that reduce the likelihood of civilian casualties, take appropriate steps when such casualties occur, and draw lessons from our operations to further enhance the protection of civilians.
Sec. 2. Policy. In furtherance of U.S. Government efforts to protect civilians in U.S. operations involving the use of force in armed conflict or in the exercise of the Nation’s inherent right of self-defense, and with a view toward enhancing such efforts, relevant departments and agencies (agencies) shall continue to take certain measures in present and future operations.
(a) In particular, relevant agencies shall, consistent with mission objectives and applicable law, including the law of armed conflict:
(i) train personnel, commensurate with their responsibilities, on compliance with legal obligations and policy guidance that address the protection of civilians and on implementation of best practices that reduce the likelihood of civilian casualties, including through exercises, pre-deployment training, and simulations of complex operational environments that include civilians;
(ii) develop, acquire, and field intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems that, by enabling more accurate battlespace awareness, contribute to the protection of civilians;
(iii) develop, acquire, and field weapon systems and other technological capabilities that further enable the discriminate use of force in different operational contexts;
(iv) take feasible precautions in conducting attacks to reduce the likelihood of civilian casualties, such as providing warnings to the civilian population (unless the circumstances do not permit), adjusting the timing of attacks, taking steps to ensure military objectives and civilians are clearly distinguished, and taking other measures appropriate to the circumstances; and
(v) conduct assessments that assist in the reduction of civilian casualties by identifying risks to civilians and evaluating efforts to reduce risks to civilians.
(b) In addition to the responsibilities above, relevant agencies shall also, as appropriate and consistent with mission objectives and applicable law, including the law of armed conflict:
(i) review or investigate incidents involving civilian casualties, including by considering relevant and credible information from all available sources, such as other agencies, partner governments, and nongovernmental organizations, and take measures to mitigate the likelihood of future incidents of civilian casualties;
(ii) acknowledge U.S. Government responsibility for civilian casualties and offer condolences, including ex gratia payments, to civilians who are injured or to the families of civilians who are killed;
(iii) engage with foreign partners to share and learn best practices for reducing the likelihood of and responding to civilian casualties, including through appropriate training and assistance; and
(iv) maintain channels for engagement with the International Committee of the Red Cross and other nongovernmental organizations that operate in conflict zones and encourage such organizations to assist in efforts to distinguish between military objectives and civilians, including by appropriately marking protected facilities, vehicles, and personnel, and by providing updated information on the locations of such facilities and personnel.
Sec. 3. Report on Strikes Undertaken by the U.S. Government Against Terrorist Targets Outside Areas of Active Hostilities.
(a) The Director of National Intelligence (DNI), or such other official as the President may designate, shall obtain from relevant agencies information about the number of strikes undertaken by the U.S. Government against terrorist targets outside areas of active hostilities from January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016, as well as assessments of combatant and non-combatant deaths resulting from those strikes, and publicly release an unclassified summary of such information no later than May 1, 2017. By May 1 of each subsequent year, as consistent with the need to protect sources and methods, the DNI shall publicly release a report with the same information for the preceding calendar year.
(b) The annual report shall also include information obtained from relevant agencies regarding the general sources of information and methodology used to conduct these assessments and, as feasible and appropriate, shall address the general reasons for discrepancies between post-strike assessments from the U.S. Government and credible reporting from nongovernmental organizations regarding non-combatant deaths resulting from strikes undertaken by the U.S. Government against terrorist targets outside areas of active hostilities.
(c) In preparing a report under this section, the DNI shall review relevant and credible post-strike all-source reporting, including such information from nongovernmental sources, for the purpose of ensuring that this reporting is available to and considered by relevant agencies in their assessment of deaths.
(d) The Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs may, as appropriate, request that the head of any relevant agency conduct additional reviews related to the intelligence assessments of deaths from strikes against terrorist targets outside areas of active hostilities.
Sec. 4. Periodic Consultation. In furtherance of the policies and practices set forth in this order, the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, through the National Security Council staff, will convene agencies with relevant defense, counterterrorism, intelligence, legal, civilian protection, and technology expertise to consult on civilian casualty trends, consider potential improvements to U.S. Government civilian casualty mitigation efforts, and, as appropriate, report to the Deputies and Principals Committees, consistent with Presidential Policy Directive 1 or its successor. Specific incidents will not be considered in this context, and will continue to be examined within relevant chains of command.
Sec. 5. General Provisions. (a) The policies and practices set forth above are not intended to alter, and shall be implemented consistent with, the authority and responsibility of commanders and other U.S. personnel to execute their mission as directed by the President or other appropriate authorities, which necessarily includes the inherent right of self-defense and the maintenance of good order and discipline among U.S. personnel. No part of this order modifies the chain of command of the U.S. Armed Forces or the authority of U.S. commanders.
(b) No part of this order modifies priorities in the collection of intelligence or the development, acquisition, or fielding of weapon systems and other technological capabilities.
(c) No part of this order shall prejudice or supplant established procedures pertaining to administrative or criminal investigative or judicial processes in the context of the military justice system or other applicable law and regulation.
(d) The policies set forth in this order are consistent with existing U.S. obligations under international law and are not intended to create new international legal obligations; nor shall anything in this order be construed to derogate from obligations under applicable law, including the law of armed conflict.
(e) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

“Never let a crisis go to waste.”
While not often put as bluntly as the above quote by Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s former chief of staff, such sentiments have for decades been standard rhetoric for radicals constantly seeking more power for themselves.
Obama was quick to parlay the recent murders of five Dallas police officers into another attempt to push his agenda to turn state and local police forces into mere subsidiaries of the federal government. “I want to start moving on constructive actions that are actually going to make a difference,” he declared at a press conference in Poland (shown), in response to a question about the killings in Dallas.
Obama referenced a panel he selected to offer “practical concrete solutions that can reduce — if not eliminate — the problems of racial bias” in the aftermath of the 2014 riots in Ferguson, Missouri, stating, “If my voice has been true and positive, my hope would be that … [the panel identifies] problems, it frames them, it allows us to wrestle with these issues and try to come up with practical solutions.”
The panel made its recommendations in the “President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing Report,” published in May 2015.
Not surprisingly, the solutions offered can be summed up succinctly: more federal control of the nation’s police. The report calls for more police training and practices, under the direction of the federal government. Methods to advance this goal include federal lawsuits (the stick) and grants (the carrot). Of course, once local governments become dependent upon these grants, the threat of cutting them off can be used to press for changes in policies to comply with federal dictates. With federal money (the bait) comes federal control (the hook).
So far, 30 police jurisdictions have adopted federal rules through the use of federal lawsuits.
A close examination of the Task Force’s “recommendations” reveals that the solutions are, as usual, more federal control. The report asserts, “Trust between law enforcement agencies and the People they protect is essential in a democracy.” This statement reveals the bias of the Task Force. First, no concern is expressed in the report about any problems with federal law-enforcement agencies. While it is certainly true that local police departments, like all government agencies, are not perfect, none has ever committed any action on the scale of the FBI’s 1993 unprovoked attack on the Branch Davidian Compound in Waco, Texas, which resulted in the deaths of scores of people, including children.
Second, the U.S. Constitution guarantees to every state a republican form of government, yet the report calls our form of government a “democracy.” A republic is the rule of law, in which the purpose of government is to protect the life, liberty, and property of the people. A democracy, on the other hand, is the rule of the majority, which is designed to carry out the will of the majority, without regard for liberty.
The report also offered “two overarching recommendations: the President should support the creation of a National Crime and Justice Task Force to examine all areas of criminal justice and propose reforms.”
What are some of these reforms? The Task Force suggested that “Law enforcement agencies should strive to create a workforce that encompasses a broad range of diversity including race, gender, language, life experience, and cultural background to improve understanding and effectiveness in dealing with all communities.” This implies that local police departments presently do not understand “cultural” differences within their communities, and that all wisdom emanates from inside the Beltway. This is an attempt to substitute the judgment of federal bureaucrats for that of officials in local communities.
And, as has been the goal of the Left since at least the 1930s, the report calls for the establishment of “civilian oversight mechanisms” within the local communities. This is a reference to “civilian review boards,” which would probably be taken over by anti-police progressives and used to further undermine the work of local police departments. There are already multiple checks in place to deal with misbehavior by police, but those do not advance the agenda of the Left.
As noted previously in The New American,
The campaign for establishing “civilian review boards” has been underway since the 1930s — when it was launched by the Communist Party. The term “civilian review” is deceptively appealing, and we already have it in the form of civilian officials elected by the people and other civilian appointees and institutions established under state constitutions and county/city charters: state and county grand juries, county commissions, city councils, mayors, county sheriffs, etc. The Communist Party and its fellow travelers intended to undermine this constitutional civilian process by inserting over police and sheriffs an unelected board of activists (whom they intend to control). Unfortunately, this subversive program has now been instituted in more than 100 U.S. cities.
The report’s often benign language disguises its more malevolent intent. In another place in the report, it is recommended that the federal government “assist” law enforcement:
To assist law enforcement and the community to achieve the elements of pillar two [Policy and Oversight], the U.S. Department of Justice, through the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office] and Office of Justice Programs (OJP), should provide technical assistance and incentive funding to jurisdictions with small police agencies that take steps toward interagency collaboration, shared services, and regional training.
In other words, if a smaller police department will do as they are told by the federal government, they will receive “incentive funding.” Among the examples offered of this submission are taking “steps toward interagency collaboration, shared services, and regional training.” This is actually a call for an end to the independence of the local police departments. While each police department would continue to be named for the local community (at least for now), it would really be the U.S. Police Department.Does anyone really believe it would be easier to deal with a federal police department than a local one? And furthermore, would such centralization of police functions stop at the national level?
The report added, “They [the local police departments] should also partner with the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST) … with the goal of covering all agencies within the United States and its territories.”
According to its website, IADLEST is an international organization of training managers and executives dedicated to the improvement of public safety personnel. Their law-enforcement education program was “the first significant infusion of federal funds.”
Notice that this so-called partnership does not envision just “small” police departments, but rather “all” agencies within the country.
Training and education is a critical part of the plan to federalize the police force. The IADLEST website continues, “To further assist the training and educational needs of law enforcement, the Federal Government should support the development of partnerships with training facilities across the country to promote consistent standards for high quality training and establish training innovation hubs involving university and police academies.” And this training should follow a “standardized” curriculum.
This is quite similar to the use of Common Core “standards” to build a national “standardized curriculum” in the public schools. In public schools, much attention is understandably focused on the content of the “standards” the schools are expected to follow. Many conservatives decry the progressive agenda pushed with these standards. But the fundamental problems with the education standards is not so much the content — the “social studies” standards could be written by James Madison and George Washington and they would still be wrong — but that they are transferring control to the federal government, away from the states, in contradiction to our federal system. One must realize that once the premise is accepted that standards should be set nationally, control is national. Madison, for example, might write good standards, but those standards could then be changed later by progressives — who never give up in their efforts to move the country to the Left.
Applying this principle to “standards” for training and education for local and state police, we must remember that it is simply not the function of the federal government to set such standards. If the federal government sets the standards, we have created a federal police force. The sad and brutal history of nationalized police forces — the Cheka in the Soviet Union, and the Gestapo in National Socialist Germany — comes to mind.
So, whether it is a shooting of a citizen by a police officer, or the shooting of a police officer by a citizen, everything is an excuse to increase the control of the federal government over policing, in contradiction of the 10th Amendment, which makes most law enforcement a “reserved power” of the states and local governments.
It is difficult to imagine why someone who favors limited government would want a national police force. This is why the “Support Your Local Police” campaign of The John Birch Society includes the phrase, “and keep them independent.” We must keep the police independent of the federal government!

Gun-related tragedies in the U.S. and around the world
The following table lists the worldwide mass and school shootings from 1996 to the present. Find the date, location, and a short description of each incident.
07 12 16 Milestones in Federal Gun Control Legislation
A timeline of gun legislation and organizations from 1791 to the present.
Throughout American history, high-profile gun violence has focused the national spotlight on gun control.
The Dec. 14, 2012 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School and other mass shootings are typically followed by a public debate of gun safety and gun owners’ rights in America.
The following is a timeline of important federal legislation and milestones reached by national organizations tied to the Second Amendment and the issue of gun control.
Thinking people, (assuming they are intelligent enough to be aware and involved in human affairs) would conclude that there should be a major change in how children are raised, what they are taught, and by whom they are taught. Humanity has a problem, not guns! Homo sapiens have been killers since Able and Cain, so a major change in education is drastically needed. We could start by making sure the government stayed out of family affairs, education; and the corporations who sell violence in all of the media methods should be held responsible. One cannot expect children or adults who have watched the glorification of violence their whole life to mature into responsible adults who respect human and animal life. There is, and never has been a government who did not have a motive to advance their control over their constituents, and indirectly teaching them to be killers has always worked in their favor. What the whole world needs is finding and authorizing the right people to be their leaders, instead of allowing the BANKERS to do it.
Now let’s consider the present movement to disassociate ones person from the federal government Corporations, and the people who are assuming the leadership of teaching how it is accomplished. For them I have a few questions: such as how they expect to proceed without a step by step methodology, including the proper forms, and estimated expense. Also what kind of personal protection can they expect from past and new forms of law enforcement? How will they who are completely dependent on different forms of government compensations going to survive once they have declared their independence? Is this going to be another form of division between the rich and the poor, the well educated and the lesser intellects? Just who are going to front the money to pay for offices, and supplies, telephone and electric, transportation and personal compensation for this new form of government?
I see a huge potential for the wealthy to take over this freedom movement as recorded history has no evidence of assisting the poor and less intelligent! The backbone of all nations are the working class who have been dehumanized, dumbed down to self centeredness, and systematically brain-washed. We will wind up in a civil war as soon as the Bankers see any threat from this quest for independence. May the Holy Lord of Glory have mercy on us all! I know of no person who has had a stronger desire to kill and maim our so called leaders for their debauchery than I do, but never will, simply because my Lord and my God forbids it. That my dear people, is the only thing that will save America from destruction. So keep on legitimizing allah and see what you get. Now let’s consider our heroes, the military, the so-called ones who sacrifice their life to protect America! Where the hell are they when we need them to clean house at home? Forget the ragheads boys, and take care of the International Investment Bankers. Then you will be idolized for ever!!!!!

Obama and the most successful national subversion in world history
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD
America is coming apart – not just the United States, the sovereign nation, but our Constitution, our culture, our traditions, all of what “America” has come to mean.
It is not by accident.
What we are witnessing is the product of eight years of Barack Obama and his divisive rhetoric and destructive policies.
Obama’s “transformation” is a euphemism for the crippling and humbling of a great nation he considers racist, oppressive, venal and dysfunctional.
He warned us.
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” – Barack Obama, October 30, 2008.
But Michelle Obama said it best.
“We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” – Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008.
And that different place as a nation is fragmentation and collapse.
It is not a conspiracy.
There is, in fact, a deliberate, coordinated and ongoing effort to subvert the United States as a capitalist, Judeo-Christian based republic and replace it with alien political ideologies and cultures incompatible to personal liberty.
None of what is happening is “home-grown.”
There is an alliance between the global political left and radical Islam, two totalitarian philosophies that cannot dominate the world without first destroying capitalist, Judeo-Christian-based democracy, the United States being both the foremost proponent and primary target.
Just as Islamists attempt to impose their religion on the world in a totalitarian fashion requiring unwavering obedience, so do radical leftists strive to create an omnipotent socialist state that will control every aspect of daily life and will enforce a universal brand of “social justice” on all mankind.
I will not mince words.
The Democrat Party now represents, at least philosophically if not operationally, the American subsidiary of that alliance.
The Republican Party is dominated by globalists, obsessed with the acquisition of personal power and profit, and uninterested and willingly impotent in defending the rights, liberties and well-being of American citizens. The GOP leadership has solidified its choice to no longer represent what had been its constituency, but to adopt the identity of junior partners in the ruling class.
To summarize, the crises we are currently experiencing are the direct consequence of the policies pursued by Barack Obama, a coffeehouse communist and Islamic groupie, who leads a lawless cabal of fellow-travelers, financed by domestic anti-American and foreign sources, supported by professional agitators, facilitated by a supine Republican political opposition and cheered-on by a predominately left-wing media.
Societal division and social unrest are tactics used to destabilize and demoralize, to further fundamentally transform the country, which has already been undermined economically, educationally and culturally from within.
It has always been the dilemma of social revolutionaries, whether communist or Islamic, that as long as individuals embraced liberty and had the belief that his or her Divine spark of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation recognized as the necessary prerequisite for totalitarianism.
Political correctness is part of that effort. Its aim is to narrow the range of thought in order to make independent thinking literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express those thoughts. It is accomplished through the systematic destruction of words and phrases as “micro-aggressions” or simply making statements that are patently untrue.
For example, despite exhaustive efforts by the Mainstream Media to paint Black Lives Matter (BLM) as a movement dedicated to “racial equality” or “social justice” and engaging in “peaceful protests;” it is, in reality, a violent, racist, and dangerous domestic terror group funded by rich white men (links to Ben and Jerry’s Foundation and George Soros) devoted to destabilizing American socio-cultural infrastructure, legitimized by Obama with a presidential invitation to the White House, and endorsed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood front group and the unindicted co-conspirator in the prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation for providing support to the terrorist group Hamas.
That is a pattern of connected dots, which our hopelessly corrupt political-media establishment, as acts of self-preservation and complicity-avoidance, tries tirelessly to disconnect.
Most of the social chaos and extremism we are currently witnessing in our country is the product of a well-funded and well-organized anti-American, predominately foreign, radical Islamo-leftist agenda – and an administration that enables rather than opposes the aims of our enemies.
It is time for patriots to take America back.

By Michael Gaddy
Anarchist Emma Goldman correctly stated, “Most human beings only think they want freedom. In truth they yearn for the bondage of social order, rigid laws, materialism. The only freedom man really wants, is the freedom to become comfortable.” No better proof can be found of this axiom than a casual perusal of social media. A mindless Tweet or a funny video on Facebook will garner thousands of comments or “likes” but cognitive material which requires thought and consideration and might be mentally uncomfortable is to a large part ignored, because, to face the truth, especially in considering one’s government is completely and totally corrupt, should and does create an uncomfortable feeling in the minds of those who are not comatose. Besides, in today’s social media world anything over 140 characters takes too long to read and is immediately rejected by the Public Fool System indoctrinated mind.
My last Rant is a great example. People do not want to face the historical reality that members of the military and those whom Patrick Henry referred to as “state and federal sheriffs” will at some point use their power, weapons, and authority against the American citizen when ordered to do so by those “in positions of authority” over them. This is especially difficult considering the majority of public holidays have been perverted in the minds of Ignoramus Americanus in order to “honor and embrace” this very group of so-called heroic public servants.
Patrick Henry also said, “I know no way of judging the future but by the past.” The pages of history are laced with many stories of when governments have used their “standing armies” to oppress, enslave and even exterminate their own citizens. When faced with the unassailable truth that privately owned firearms in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina were confiscated/seized by branches of the military and the police, most Americans continue their head-in-the-sand posture because it makes them uncomfortable to consider the truth. Please, ask yourself: when your head is in the sand, what part of your anatomy is totally exposed? The often heard phrase “it can’t happen here” will be of little comfort when the door of your home is forced open and the uninvited burst inside.
If you have one ounce of courage and the slightest urge to accept reality watch this video. Remember, those in the uniforms of the police and the military might have felt uncomfortable doing what they were ordered to do, but their oaths to uphold and defend the people and their individual rights against the people’s domestic enemies did not deter them or stop them from carrying out the orders of the tyrant, and it will not stop them in the future.
I am comfortable that the great majority of what I write in my Rants will be proved correct by events that transpire daily within our government and the world—BUT—after writing my last Rant I didn’t expect the FBI to prove a critical point contained in my writing so quickly. In that Rant I stated the totally corrupt criminal enterprise we call our government is possible only because of the “standing army” of “federal and state sheriffs” and the military. FBI director James Comey confirmed my assertion within days of the publication of my article. Can there be any doubt in anyone’s mind that 4 decades of criminality by the Clinton Crime Syndicate has been facilitated and protected by the FBI and other branches of federal, state and local sheriffs? If Hillary becomes “commandress-in-chief” and orders the police and military to travel door-to-door in this country to confiscate privately owned firearms, a large portion of those forces will carry out her orders? With history as a guideline, those same forces did exactly that under George W. Bush in New Orleans.
Consider for a moment our own sordid history. When Abraham Lincoln ordered firearms be confiscated in the North in 1861-1865, did Lincoln, Seward, Stanton, Thaddeus Stevens or Charles Sumner travel door-to-door seizing those firearms or did they use the military and police to do so? Was it Lincoln personally who imprisoned tens of thousands of people who didn’t agree with his destruction of our Constitution or was it members of his “standing army?” Was it Lincoln who shot and killed northern citizens who dared oppose the draft in the New York City draft riots in 1863?
People in the South who cherish their history and their heritage must realize the right of the consent of the governed, self-determination and States Rights (9th and 10th amendments) were destroyed along with billions of dollars of private property and hundreds of thousands of lives, not by Abraham Lincoln and the Radical Republicans like Stevens and Sumner, but a “standing army” of willing dupes not at all unlike the military and police in the streets of New Orleans in 2005; the forces at Ruby Ridge in 1992 or at Waco in 1993.
No tyrant in history has ever been able to deliver death and destruction on a large scale except with the willing cooperation of their “standing armies.” When tyranny, oppression, death and destruction again comes to the streets and homes of this country it will be at the hands of a standing army of members of the military and state, federal and local sheriffs. History will not be mocked.
Ah, the Scorpion and the Frog. A quick look at any newscast or social media site reveals very quickly that there are people in this country who still believe one can depend on members of the criminal cabal, current or newly elected, to right the ship of state and again bring constitutional government to our land.
I have been a firm advocate of the theory that the best person for any job in government is the person who doesn’t want it. Ridiculous, you say? Consider please the mentality of anyone who seeks a position of power and control over others. I believe the great majority of those who covet that kind of power are at base mentality, sociopaths. Let us take a look at the traits in the profile of a sociopath. “Manipulative and Conning—They never recognize the rights of others.” If there was ever a perfect description of Hillary Clinton, her husband, Barack Obama, members of the Bush Crime Family and hundreds of members of Congress and the Supreme Court, where is it better defined? Then there is “grandiose sense of self” and “lack of remorse, shame or guilt.” I believe this fits every national candidate or incumbent in public office today and many at the state and local levels. What about “pathological lying” and “need for stimulation?” Who in politics does this description not fit?
Sociopaths seek the position of authority over others that will accommodate their natural proclivities. A standing army of military and police who can be used to impose the will of the sociopath on others fits those requirements to a “T.” That is why those known as the anti-Federalists in this country’s history, were so opposed to such an instrument of tyranny.
How many have noticed that throughout this past presidential election season, mentions of our Constitution and Bill of Rights are as rare as truthful statements by candidates seeking the highest office in the land? Why so, a prudent person might ask? What “we the people” have been offered by both sides of the political spectrum during this campaign are increased levels of Marxist Socialism, an ever more powerful executive branch, more bombing and killing of people in countries where oil is prevalent, and more importantly—more free stuff provided with other people’s money. No wonder the Constitution and Bill of Rights are seldom mentioned, because the principles of both oppose almost everything candidates on both sides have said they will do or have done already.
The masses in this country cry for constitutional governance, usually after they have voted for the lesser of evils in large numbers. The Tea Party and its various alliterations are a great example. For almost 8 years now, these folks have sworn their undying allegiance to the tenets of our Constitution and were instrumental in the election of “Tea Party” candidates. But, where are the results? Have we stopped illegal, unconstitutional wars? Have we done away with the socialist Affordable Care Act? Have we taken same-sex marriage and abortion off the political stage? Have we stopped illegal immigration or promoted more? Are race relations better or worse? Have we had more or fewer terrorist attacks? Have we even begun to work ourselves out from under the forces of tremendous, liberty-eating debt or have we increased this debt at unheard of levels in a vain attempt to satiate those who believe they are “entitled” and those who believe in perpetual war for peace? How many of these so-called constitutional voters have voted for candidates who have violated their sacred oaths repeatedly in the past because they had the preferred letter (R) after their names? Have these wonderful “conservatives,” waving their pocket Constitutions, brought us more or less socialism in the past eight years? Have they elected anyone who actually opposed the Marxist policies of Obama? If so, where are those results?
Once we accept the fact the vast majority of people running for or holding political office are sociopaths with many leaning toward psychopathy and treat them as such, constitutional governance is a pipe-dream and completely unattainable. The sociopath running as a Democrat is neither more or less evil than the sociopath running as a Republican. To believe otherwise is to completely embrace insanity as defined by Albert Einstein.
The people in this country today can be visualized as the frog looking at a raging river of oppression, tyranny, and debt. Political candidates and incumbent politicians are the sociopathic scorpions who promise they will get us all through that river and over to the other side if we will just allow them to ride on our backs in order to cross. Throughout recorded history, the frog has realized, all too late, usually after feeling the sting of the scorpion, that both are doomed to die because the sociopathic scorpions can not help themselves—it is in their nature to do what they do and they will never change their nature! The river of oppression and tyranny grow more invasive by the day. Until we refuse to allow the political scorpion to ride on our backs, the river will continue to rise.

I cannot pretend that I personally know Mike, but if I wanted a brother, I would choose him. It’s his writing that gets to me. In him I see the man I wish I was, as that is what his writing skill does to me. However, with his knowledge I cannot help but wonder why he has never picked up on, or asked himself, “How is this possible?” Surely he knows how self-centered most modern American’s are, but why does he not pursue the real reason the government gets away with all this shit? Mike if you read this I’m begging you to read these two books; Fruit from a Poisonous Tree by Mel Stamper https://www.amazon.com/Fruit-Poisonous-Tree-Mel-Stamper/dp/0595524966 ANDYou Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Judge Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1491279184/ref=cm_cr_asin_lnk
If you are ever going to accomplish anything concrete it will be from promoting these two books because we both know the majority of our fellow American’s are too damn lazy and chicken-shit to really DO ANYTHING. If fifty million people read this material and actually put it in affect, there would be wailing and gashing of teeth in DC. And the Banking Cartel would probably give the go ahead for ww3. That would suit the shit out of me because I really am ashamed of my countrymen. May GOD forgive them for their self-centered apathy! Any group of people who really believe a government will serve the people, with honor and compassion has shit for brains. Governments history from the get go have proven they are the tyrants of history as their object has always been the pursuit of power and money. Once your brain shrinks enough to believe they are needed, the next step is death by stupidity.

Fruit from a Poisonous Tree
NEVER WATCH THE HAND BEHIND MY BACK
While researching my first book, High Priests of Treason, I discovered some of the most fascinating information anyone could ever hope to uncover about money, finance and government. I will share it with you so that you have a better understanding of the issues you will be reading about and possibly facing in the near future. This knowledge could not be obtained without years of research; I have saved you the trouble of traveling that same forty miles of bad road. I do, however, advise any that wish to challenge this evil empire as I have to verify cites and information that I supply. Get educated on the facts before you act, and then act.
My investigation concentrated on the Judiciary; Internal Revenue Service; Federal Reserve Bank, Inc.; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms; offices of the Secretary of the Treasury and State; as well as the President and the Congress. That investigation has disclosed, in my mind, a broad, premeditated conspiracy by the International Bankers and their agents in the United States government to defraud and enslave the Citizens of the united States of America since 1900.
Examination into the Statutes at Large, United States Code, Code of Federal Regulations, Congressional Record, Federal Register, the Internal Revenue manuals, and other sources too numerous to mention, reveal a conspiracy of such magnitude that I do not have the words to adequately describe that betrayal to the American people. This is why I repudiated my citizenship with the corporate government of the United States, its demonic masters and their tool on earth, the United Nations, controlled by the International Banking families. These families would slit their children’s throat for a dollar, and they dearly love their children.
What I uncovered has clearly been designed to circumvent the intent and restrictions of the Constitution for the united States of America by the defacto government in operation today. I’m convinced that their purpose was to implement the Communist Manifesto within the fifty States and enslave us all. If you take the time to read that “Manifesto,” you will discover that its principles are enshrined in our federal and state statutes. Engles and Marx espoused that to create a classless society, a “graduated income tax” should be used as the weapon to destroy the middle class of a country. Such a system is in place, managed by the US version of the KGB, the ever-benevolent Internal Revenue Service, which is not even a part of the government.
For the proof, refer to Diversified Metal Products v. T-Bow Trust Co., IRS and Steve Morgan, within the United States’ Answer and Claim at paragraph 4: “Denies that the Internal Revenue Service is an agency of the United States Government, etc.,” signed by Richard R. Ward, US Dept. of Justice (US District Court, District of Idaho; Civil No. 93-405-E-EJL).
Deception, quick hands, sophistry and obfuscation all constitute the art of magic. Those who practice in illusion are called magicians or, in the less poetic sense, “politicians” – “now you see me; now you don’t.” The Congress and the IRS are full of magicians who have created their web of deceit and illusion in the tax laws, not by quick hands but by illusory language.
Have you ever questioned why your Christian name is spelled in all capital letters, when we all know that English grammar requires the spelling of all proper nouns in upper and lower case letters? I can assure you that it is not for clarity. Does the word “person” in statutory law mean the same as in everyday language usage? You are about to discover the answer to both of those questions.
In the beginning of the Twentieth Century, when the courts still had truly honorable judges, they ruled some of those early tax laws unconstitutional or unlawful.
The IRS immediately removed themselves outside the jurisdiction and venue of the courts, to the Philippines and Puerto Rico. By deceiving and coercing the population, beginning with the War Tax Act of 1942, the Congress and the IRS continued their unconstitutional and criminal activity to this day. These criminal magicians have convinced the American population that citizens of this nation are of a status that they are not – that they are subjects of the federal government, which they are not.
They led us to believe that we must do things that are not required to be done or go to jail. Through the clever use of “IRS-speak” and the Congress’ “word art,” the Executive Branch promotes the fraud, the Congress turns a blind eye to their misconduct (but they have hearings that they hope will demonstrate their outrage to the voters), and then their dishonorable courts ratify the alleged criminal misconduct by rubber-stamping the convictions of innocent Citizens.
To illustrate my point on the complicity of the court in this immoral scheme, I refer to a recent case before the Supreme Court, the case of United States v. Sandra L. Craft, Case No. 00-1831, in hearing on January 14, 2002. The Assistant Solicitor General, Mr. Kent L. Jones, was asked a question from the court:
1.“… some penalties for failing to file a return?”
2.“There are some penalties, but the penalties, like taxes, have to be enforced against the property of the taxpayer, and if the taxpayer is allowed to exempt all of its property in this fashion, then there’s literally no way that the taxes can be enforced through civil procedures.”
“What about criminal procedures? Are there any criminal procedures for – failure, continued failure to file – ?”
“Of course if you file a return, then you’re not exposing yourself to any criminal obligations, and if you don’t file a return, it would be – (I’m not familiar with a statute that makes that a crime by itself.) Now, it may be that it’s a crime in connection with some intent to conceal, but just the fact that you didn’t file – I’m not – even though I come before the Court on tax cases.
I’m not an expert on criminal tax matters, but it’s my impression that that would not by itself be a crime.”
“We’d better not let the word get out. I thought it was a crime, but I’ll check.” (Followed by laughter)
Over three thousand Americans each year are sent to federal prison for not filing a tax return, and the Assistant Solicitor General, Mr. Kent L. Jones, admits to the Supreme Court that it is not illegal to not file a tax return.
The Supreme Court advises him, “We’d better not let the word get out.”
That supposed bastion in the protection of our freedom wants to keep it a dirty little secret among the privileged few and to continue to permit the imprisonment of thousands of innocent people and the resultant destruction of their lives. That is something to laugh about?
This is a perfect point in the book to educate you on your proper status as a Citizen of one of the Republic States of the Union. What you were taught in public school was exactly what the federal and state government wanted you to be taught. The most powerful tool of control of any population by the government is ignorance of its subjects.
“A sovereign is one in whom supreme power is vested. He may delegate whatever of his total authority he wishes. He can consent to whatever outside authority he may choose or none at all. However, he cannot be “subject” to outside authority; this would be in contradiction to sovereignty.” (Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Ed.)
The creation of the enumerated powers in the United States Constitution was done by delegation of authority. The power of the sovereign people remained with the people. The federal government may exercise its enumerated power only on their behalf. This relationship was well-stated by the Supreme Court as follows:“Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts.” (Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 US 353)
Are you a citizen of the United States?
Are you a Sovereign?
Those two questions and their answers hold the secret of our present day condition of servitude to the de facto federal and state governments. There have been massive fraudulent practices of the Congress and state legislatures in the creation of legislation (statutes) that has regulated our lives and commerce for over sixty years. Without a thorough understanding of your correct relationship to these legal fictions and the statutes they have created, you are doomed to a lifetime of servitude, which can be avoided.
I pray for more understanding and knowledge, as I do not as yet know the impact or total paradigm of this deception. What I do know is shocking but enlightening. I will attempt to explain as much as is possible with that limited knowledge of the methods used to obfuscate the law and your citizenship status, effectively placing you in a feudal relationship with government forces.
In order for you to take cognizance of the full context of this conspiracy, you need to understand the meaning of words of art used by the various legislative bodies to entrap you. The words used in statutory law do not have the normal, everyday, street meaning. By diagramming the statute, it is possible to understand the intent of the law and its application. Get out your old 10th Grade English Grammar Book and learn how to diagram sentences; it will save you a world of grief.
PREAMBLE TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
It appears that “We the People” of the United States, acting through our representatives, were sovereign, because we are doing the creating of this constitutional compact. But does that mean that you individually are a sovereign?
If King Juan Carlos of Spain were to submit to a kidney transplant and the recipient was a farmer from Ohio, would the farmer become a sovereign king of Spain the moment the kidney was stitched into his body? Of course not!
To be King Juan Carlos of Spain, you must be the whole person; you must be a living soul; you must wear a mask of your status. King Carlos would still be a king regardless if he had the two kidneys or one. What makes him a king and sovereign is that he was born with the title of sovereign (ruler’s mask); nothing more. If he renounced that title, he would not be a sovereign but would revert to a different class (common man’s mask) or subject of a higher authority – that which would replace him.
So being a sovereign requires that someone or some force has declared that you are sovereign and has given you the authority to exercise all of your powers over your subjects (citizens).
That could be done by God (as royalty claims to rule by divine right) or by being elected to that lofty position by your subjects. Since none of us have been declared by God to be sovereign or elected to the position of sovereign by our fellow man, individually one cannot be sovereign, as many in the Patriot community profess. Not only would the declaration that you are sovereign be frivolous to the ears of the court, it would be a blasphemy to the Lord God of the Universe, as he is the only true Sovereign to whom we all owe our allegiance.
What you are is a unique species – a species described by God as a living soul. “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” – Genesis 2:8
That distinction is unique in the United States of America, because we all – collectively as living souls – were given the highest possible status: that of sovereign over the government we created. The authority for bestowing that authority was “We the People.” When we act as a whole, then We the People are the Sovereign of the United States of America, exercising our power through our elected representatives. When we act as individuals, we are acting in the capacity of living souls, each responsible for ourselves. The court has described this concept as follows:
“A distinction was taken at the bar between a state and the people of the state. It is a distinction I am not capable of comprehending.
By a state forming a republic (speaking of it as a moral person), I do not mean the legislature of the state, the executive of the state, or the judiciary, but all the citizens who compose the state, and are, if I may so express myself, integral parts of it; all together forming a body politic.
The great distinction between monarchies and republics (at least our republic) in general is, that in the former the monarch is considered as the sovereign, and each individual of his nation as a subject to him, though in some countries with many important special limitations.
This, I say, is generally the case, for it has not been so universal. But in a republic, all the citizens as such, are equal, and no citizen can rightfully exercise any authority over another but in virtue of a power constitutionally given by the whole community, and such authority, when exercised, is in effect an act of the whole community, which forms such body politic. In such governments, therefore, the sovereignty resides in the great body of the people, but it resides in them not as so many distinct individuals, but in their political capacity only.
Thus A, B, C, and D are citizens of Pennsylvania, and as such, together with all the citizens of Pennsylvania share in the sovereignty of the state.
Suppose a state to consist exactly had a number of 100,000 citizens, and if it were practicable for them all to assemble at one time and in one place, and that 99,999 did actually assemble, the state would not be in fact assembled. Why? Because the state in fact is composed of all the citizens, not of a part only, however large the part may be, and one is wanting.” – Penhallow v. Doane, 3 Dall. 93.
The protections we gave ourselves as living souls and a sovereign body politic were incorporated into the Constitution as the first ten Amendments, which are often referred to as the Bill of Rights. These rights were specifically enumerated because, from our colonial experience, these rights were the most often abused by the king and his agents and are deemed to be so fundamental, that without them, there would be no humanity.
The Constitution was written in order to protect the commerce of the independent sovereign states from foreign aggression and equal treatment among the contracting states. The individual living souls of the states that compacted together by the Constitution were protected in their fundamental rights from its creation, the federal government, in the exercise of the enumerated powers that we granted it and nothing more.
The Constitution did not create a sovereign government over the member states to the compact or over the people of those states.
The Congress and the state legislatures are cognizant of the authority delegated them by “We the People” – the sovereign body politic – under the federal and state constitutions, and are specific when legislating law for the sovereign body politic and for subjects of the federal government. In order to gain control over us, “We the People,” they use “word art,” and by definitions such as “person,” “including,” “states,” etc., they begin stripping away our basic fundamental rights by sophistry. For their success, they depend upon our apathy towards government and the general obscurity of knowledge regarding our status vs. the citizen subject of the District.
“Person: In general usage, a human being (i.e. natural person), though by statute term may include labor organizations, partnerships, associations, corporations, legal representatives, trustees, trustees in bankruptcy, or receivers.” – Black’s Law Dictionary, 6thEdition, page 1142 Notice that there are two types of persons described:
A human being (natural person with natural rights) May include… (artificial entities or legal fictions with legal rights) The significance in our jurisprudence: The word “person,” in its primitive and natural sense, signifies the mask with which actors, who played dramatic pieces in Rome and Greece, covered their heads. These pieces were played in public places, and afterwards in such vast amphitheaters that it was impossible for a man to make himself heard by all the spectators. Recourse was made to art; the head of each actor was enveloped with a mask, the figure of which represented the part he was to play, and it was so contrived that the opening for the emission of his voice made the sounds clearer and more resounding, vox personabat, when the name “persona” was given to the instrument or mask which facilitated the resounding of his voice.
The name “persona” was afterwards applied to the part itself, which the actor had undertaken to play, because the face of the mask was adapted to the age and character of him who was considered as speaking, and sometimes it was his own portrait. It is in this last sense of personage, or of the part which an individual plays, that the word persona is employed in jurisprudence, in opposition to the word man, homo. When we speak of a person, we only consider the state of the man, the part he plays in society, abstractly, without considering the individual”. – 1 Bouvier’s Institutes, note 1.
As you can see from the definition in Bouvier’s, in our jurisprudence the part the “person” plays in society – the “mask” he wears – determines the natural or legal rights he may or may not have and the jurisdiction of the different courts over his persona.
Article 3, Section 2, of the Constitution for the United States defines the jurisdictions of the court. They are “Law,” meaning the common law with all constitutional protections, “Equity,” “Admiralty,” and “Maritime,” meaning contract law (private international law) with no constitutional protection. The common law has jurisdiction over the natural person (mask) by use of Article III courts; the remaining jurisdictions have jurisdiction over legal fictions(MASK), i.e., NON-NATURAL PERSONS, under Article IV courts.
A natural person can change his “acting role” in business and assume a different mask, if he for instance enters into a partnership, corporation or contract. He may still be a living soul, but his status (mask) under the Constitution has changed to that of a LEGAL FICTION or STRAWMAN (CORPORATE MASK), and the court’s statutory jurisdiction over the STRAWMAN is now presumed.
PROGRESSION OF DECEPTION
During the early part of the 1800s up to the time of the War Between the States, the power brokers were busy putting together a plan that would increase the political jurisdiction of the United States. This plan was necessary in their opinion because the United States had a minimum number of subjects – the ones living in the District of Columbia and only the land ceded to it by the states. The District was only ten miles square, land ceded for the seat of government by Maryland and Virginia and some land outside the District by other States, as was necessary for forts, magazines, arsenals, and other needful buildings within the member states. So the acquisition of land was also on the agenda.
Between the 1860s and the early 1900s, banking and taxing mechanisms were changing through legislation sponsored by the European central banks. Clever politicians and agents of the central banks of Europe closely associated with the powers in England had enormous influence on the legislation being passed in the Congress. It was the responsibility of the people to understand their status with regard to the United States and the legislation being passed by the Congress and their state legislatures. The largest majority of the legislation did not apply to the states or to the people within the states, but Congress did not deem it their necessary duty to make the distinction as to which law applied to whom.
This distinction between the authority and jurisdiction of the United States and that of the states was critical and taught in the home, school and church. The true status was taught because there was no federal subsidy program for the schools with required subject matter or revisionist history that the government wanted taught and no incorporation of the church restricting what could be taught because of a tax exemption.
The teaching of the Citizens’ status was unobstructed and detailed. They understood the clear line established by the Constitution and the jurisdiction of the government that flowed from the enumerated powers granted to it by that compact.
The people were in control at that precise moment because they knew both their standing (mask) in relation to the United States and its legislative jurisdiction and that of their State. The Federal courts did not interpret legislation as broadly as they do now, because the people knew when the courts were overstepping their jurisdiction by entering into litigation that was reserved for the common law, as Admiralty is private International contract law under Article IV authority.
The 14thAmendment added some confusion about the basic understanding of status because it created a new class of citizen – United States citizens that had not existed previously. The newly freed black citizen knew nothing of the Constitution, let alone jurisdiction of the government over different classes of persons. Prior to its adoption, Citizens or persons of State status automatically were deemed Citizens of the American Empire, but first and foremost, State Citizenship was paramount and American Citizenship flowed from State Citizenship.
Before the 14thAmendment in 1868, there were no persons born or naturalized in the United States; naturalization was a state function. Each person had been born or naturalized in one of the several states. Following the Civil War, the new class of citizen was recognized, and this was the beginning of the departure from the Republic and the formation of a United States democracy, whose situs is the District of Columbia. The American people in the republic sited in the several republic states could choose the benefit of federal citizenship just as one of the new United States citizens if they chose to do so.
DUAL SYSTEM OF LAW CREATED BY THE 14TH AMENDMENT
This Chapter will cover the particulars of the “dual legal system” that has been established by the 14th amendment to the Constitution for the United States. Its subject matter will encompass a general overview of adverse conditions which affect the freedom and liberty of all Americans. Matters included herein will be in reference to the police power of the state in its relation and application to the Citizen (i.e., nationals) members of any given state; moreover, any such state’s relations with other nationals of the American union.
NATIONALITY DE JURE
To grasp the true understanding of the United States of America’s governmental system in the original premise, one must imagine that the government of the federation (the “United States”) does not exist. In such case, each state in the Union would be a separate country; accordingly, under the rules of international law, a sovereign state is a nation, much as is the European continent at present.
STATE: A people permanently occupying a fixed territory bound together by common law habits and custom into one body politic exercising, through the medium of an organized government, independent sovereignty and control over all persons and things within its boundaries, capable of making war and peace and of entering into international relations with other communities of the globe. – Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition NATION: Nations or States are independent bodies politic; societies of men united together for the purpose of promoting their mutual safety and advantage by the joint efforts of their combined strength. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856 [i.e. state = nation]
The foregoing is the international definition of “state” and “nation.” Now, adding the federal government back into the equation, the constitution for the united States of America is nothing more than an international agreement (or compact/charter) between the several republics of America and their respective nations.
Accordingly, in the forming of the American federation, each state of the Union gave up some of their inherent rights of statehood that they possessed under the general rules of international law. However, one such right they did not give up is the maintenance of their respective and individual nations.
This is further found exemplified in the protection provisions that are set forth by the Ninth and Tenth Amendments in the Bill of Rights of the federal constitution.
To further expand on these premises, a citizen member of any particular nation carries the quality of that nationality.
NATIONALITY: The state of a person in relation to the nation in which he was born. A man retains his nationality of origin during his minority, but, as in the case of his domicile of origin, he may change his nationality upon attaining full age; he cannot, however, renounce his allegiance without permission of the government. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856
In reference to domicile, such is in direct relation to one’s presence in a country. In reference to one’s allegiance, such is to the nation or state of origin or his membership thereof. In further reference of nationality and allegiance that is inherent to our system of law, one has always been able to change his nationality within the Union; such terms below encompass this legal issue:
COUNTRY: By country is meant the state of which one is a member. Every man’s country is in general the state in which he happens to have been born. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856
EXPATRIATION: The voluntary act of abandoning one’s country and becoming the citizen (and national) or subject of another. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1856
NATURALIZATION: The conferring of the nationality of a state upon a person after birth, by any means whatsoever. – Ballentine’s Law Dictionary, 1969
Unknown to most Americans, such matter of natural right is available; however, for political reasons, it has been kept a secret, which will be briefly discussed in the next parts.
In a clear sense, all such qualities make up the international and constitutional de jure premise of the Union – that is to say, each state is clearly a nation by right. Accordingly, the United States of America in a purely legal sense is based on the law of nations (natural law) – is not a state, nation or country; hence, one cannot have the nationality of such. To truly maintain nationality, land is required. The “United States” does (did) not possess land to support premise of nationality; hence, the “United States” is not a state or a nation, in regards to its composite stature as the government of the Union.
The “United States” in simple sense is a “corporate body” that has been contracted by the several American nations to handle certain affairs.
It is common knowledge that after the American Civil War the Union went through some dramatic changes. Among these changes was a dominant makeover of the Union’s constitutional system. Such changes included constitutions) and the public law that is set forth by the original form of the Constitution for the United States of America.
To further illustrate the establishment of the dual system of law, we must review what has truly transpired in relation to section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment. Based on the rules that are set forth and established by the law of nations (and the alternate 13thAmendment), one cannot be subordinate to the dominion of another without his consent; hence, by using syntax (or rather, by applying sentence structure) to section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment you will find the following relevant wording set forth in “word art”: “…the right to vote…is denied…except for participation in rebellion, or other crime.”
In essence, what this accomplishes is an unwitting contractual agreement by a native – now naturalized – “citizen of the United States” (federal citizen) to unwittingly give up his de jure law form and accept the de facto law form, which is in essence the police power of the federal and state legislatures (i.e. voluntary servitude), such as established by the diabolical Fourteenth Amendment system.
In reference to said system, in simple terms, the state legislatures are acting in a quasi-war mode due to the induced voting rebellion (i.e. police state). A U.S. citizen is in breach of allegiance to his native state by tacitly and unwittingly declaring that he accepts the alternate governmental system.
Statutory law – state and federal – then controls him over his de jure law form, which is the common law.
All such citizens within the jurisdiction of the corporate United States are considered belligerents along with the nationals that run the de facto state governments. In the rudimentary form of the constitutional system of the Union, the legislatures could not create law that affected citizens at large (individual State Citizens); hence, some of the law established by the statutory scheme is pursuant to international rules of war.
As the law has been applied and is fundamentally being followed, the general constitutional provisions that have been craftily utilized to create this “silent hostility” can be found in the body of the original Constitution in Article IV, section 4 – “The United States shall …protect each of (the several states) against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive, against domestic Violence.”
In fact, this establishes a system of law that is based on maritime principles. Unknown to Americans, all courts of the United States – state and federal – are being operated under the principles of such law. Hence, note that all the courts in the United States of America display military flags (regular flags with gold fringe). Civil flags are hung vertically and never on a pole.
Accordingly, the states (governments) are acting in a quasi de jure capacity and asserting their sovereignty over their citizens de facto. Voting Americans – or, as they also have accepted this system, all United States citizens – have voluntarily been induced to unwittingly: 1) become enemies of the state; 2) become residents of their states (hence, not true nationals under the law of nations); 3) accept a feudal system of law (and land ownership); and thus, 4) give up their natural right to sovereignty that is protected by their state constitutions (and the law of nations).
Although the American governmental system is de facto, the de jure system of law, along with its several nationalities, is preserved. This is evident, as nothing in the original federal constitution has been repealed; thus, it is still in full force and effect. Under the rule of international law, the de facto governmental system cannot be forced on people of America that do not wish participate in it; thus, the de facto statutory construction can be applied only to consenting U.S. citizens (even if it is unwittingly so); hence, is not mandatory for – thus, cannot be forced on – those State Citizens who wish not to rebel against their de jure law to partake in the insurgent system.
FEDERALISM VERSUS NATIONALISM
In planned effect, these matters have created a legal or, rather, induced political phenomena – federalism. The antithesis of federalism is nationalism. To give a general background of the reasoning behind the two terms, the founding fathers, such as Thomas Jefferson, were concerned with the Federalists’ ulterior motives. Jefferson sensed that the Federalists were primarily interested in turning America into one big commercial plantation under their rule. The Constitution reflects the general concerns of Jefferson: the document’s predominate commerce clauses make obvious its commercial purpose.
Accordingly, if one would observe the political scheme that evolved in America, he would establish that in the early 1800s Jefferson ultimately overthrew the Federalist Party with his Democratic Republican Party. This took the Union out of the control of the elite (Federalist) and put it under the control of the American people. Soon after its establishment, the party split into two parties. The two parties are still in existence: today they are known as the Republicans and Democrats – the same snake with two heads.
These two parties, unbeknownst to most Americans, are acting secretly as the Federalists. Our real system of American law allowed too much freedom. On a mass basis, people could not be controlled to direct their labors toward the goals of the Elite. Instead, the current feudal system was induced unwittingly via the voluntary system put into place by the Fourteenth Amendment. To keep matters under the perpetual control of the Federalists (elitists), socialism was introduced.
Karl Marx, drafter of the Communist Manifesto in 1848, said: “Socialism leads to Communism.” To implement socialism on a Union-wide basis, the Fourteenth Amendment was enrolled via force of the Civil War. The general purposes of such obvious, yet covert, measures were to tame and train the masses to become a commercialistic economic slave force whereby the Elite would profit.
Communism is nothing more than another name for Federalism. It is basically a system that controls many nations centrally with the aim of commercialism. Accordingly, if one would investigate, all ten planks of the Communist Manifesto are applied in American law.
REMEDY OF NATURAL RIGHT AND PROTECTIONS
When societies, which are small local communities, are not allowed to govern themselves through their customs under the rule of natural law, they become prone to social breakdown. Many would agree that American society has seen a total breakdown. This is largely due to the combining of states (nations) to act as one under the dictatorial control of the federal government.
If America is to repair its apparent social degeneration, the police power of the states has to be negated and the civil common law has to be restored to the peoples (nations) of America. As the real intent of the Fourteenth Amendment took well over a century to accomplish, we can find that Congress passed law (found codified in Title 8 USC § 1401) that made America one nationality: “The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth – A person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” Such is the language from the Fourteenth Amendment.
Fortunately, as this politically-imposed nationality is a fraud, a remedy is provided pursuant to international law. Under Title 8 of the United States Code, section 1481, the de facto federal nationality can be legally terminated.
This returns one to his original status under the principles of the original constitutional system. Then, under de jure constitutional premise, interference by the “United States” is protected by the 9th and 10th Amendments in the Bill of Rights of the federal constitution. Such is exemplified in the following legal definitions found in Black’s Law, Sixth Edition.
Constitutional Liberty or Freedom: Such freedom as is enjoyed by the citizens of a country or state under the protection of its constitution, the aggregate of those personal, civil, and political rights of the individual, which are guaranteed by the Constitution and secured against invasion by the government or any of its agencies.
Constitutional Right: A right guaranteed to the citizens by the United States Constitution and state constitutions and so guaranteed as to prevent legislative interference therewith.
Once one corrects his status, he is no longer under the jurisdiction of the police power of the federal or state governments. One is then an alien as to the de facto political system, i.e. nation/body politic; moreover, one is also an alien in every state wherein he is not a national. This plays an important part in reference to the U.S. code in reference to protections and remedies. Accordingly, as one is no longer in breach of allegiance to his state government when his status is corrected, he is protected from its unlawful actions. Such unlawful actions are called actions done under color of law. The term “color of law” is another way of saying private law , or the law created under the police power of the state legislature (as it is not of the common law, i.e. custom and usage). Under the Fourteenth Amendment system, de jure nationals (a ward, in sense) are protected from such state actions by the federal government.
Title 18 USCA § 242.
Deprivation of rights under color of law. (Criminal) [In part] “Who ever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, … shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.”
Note that a person has to be an alien to be protected from actions done under the color of law. This means that if a state employee or officer violates your natural rights that are secured by the federal and/or state constitutions, he can be put in jail; moreover, the state itself is not immune from such actions.
They can be sued for their employees’, officers’, and their own actions. As the states are not paying their debts pursuant to money based on substance, as largely caused by the socialist system of government, the United States is bankrupt, and has been since 1933. All activity that they are involved in is fundamentally commercially based, such as their money system, traffic citations, taxes, etc. Accordingly, it has been held that the state governments are not immune from their commercial activities against lawful Americans.
As the de facto law system fundamentally sets up a system that is based on commercial law, the states are liable for all damages that are done to a person that is not willfully participating in the de facto political system.
The state governments are basically quasi-political subdivisions of the federal government as they are composed of “rebelling” Americans (in treason). The state governments cannot violate the natural rights of a non-participatory American. If any such governments do violate anyone’s rights thereof, they and their employees will be held liable for their actions.
American’s problems will not see any correction until either a peaceful or violent revolution is ceased and the original system put back in place. Until then, Americans must enforce their natural rights that are held under the law of nations and claim their true nationalities. It is the obligation of every American to enforce this right and make others aware of the hidden agenda that has been inflicted on us, which agenda is purely that of a commercial interest held by the World Elite.
In 1865, the 13thAmendment opened the floodgate for the people to volunteer into servitude in order to accept the benefits offered by the United States. The 13thAmendment prohibits involuntary servitude; it does not prohibit voluntary servitude. In 1870, the 15th Amendment gave that new class of citizen the right to vote in that democracy. Benefits came with this new citizenship, but with the benefits also came duties, liabilities and responsibilities that were totally regulated by the Congress for the District of Columbia and its subjects only.
In 1913, the United States began using international private law (Admiralty) because that facilitated an increase of “persons” and property for the United States, giving the District Courts booty and prize jurisdiction over enemy property within the confines of the American Republic; subject persons and property having the same status. Admiralty is a form of Military law, and jurisdiction is based upon contract. The adhesion contracts between the State Citizen and the federal government began to grow. This increase in subject citizen population became the cornerstone for the strategy of expansion, as now the federal government had many subjects because of the benefits derived from the contracts. Federal Admiralty jurisdiction was proper, because the former living soul (mask) was replaced with a legal fiction person (mask) voluntarily by contract.
Central banking for the United States was legislated into existence by the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment in 1913; it gave the central bankers all of the support they needed to finance their fiat money scheme.
In 1917, the United States entered World War I and the Congress passed the Trading with the Enemy Act and the Emergency War Powers Act, opening the doors for the United States to suspend constitutional restrictions otherwise mandated by the Constitution. Even in times of peace, every contrived and created social, political, or financial emergency was sufficient authority for the officers of the United States to overstep its peace time power and implement volumes of “law” that would increase the wealth of the United States at the expense of the “persons” (mask) who were now duty bound to support it. All of the agencies that were created temporarily in time of war were not dismantled after the war, so the federal government got larger.
The War Powers Act of 1917 was terminated after the war, but the agencies and departments created for that purpose still remain. There is always a declared emergency in the United States and its states since the resurrection of the War Powers Act of 1933, but when the statute is read carefully, it applies only to their 14th Amendment subject citizen. This is the main reason for obscuring the fact that there are two different classes of “person” within the American Empire, as well as two distinct United States. If you are not taught the facts in school, how else will you learn?
The statutory construction appears with crystal clarity when we consider the language used by the Supreme Court to describe the different definitions of the “United States.”
“This term has several meanings. It may be merely  the name of a sovereign occupying the position analogous to that of other sovereigns in the family of nations,  it may designate territory over which sovereignty of the United States extends, or  it may be the collective name of the states which are united by and under the Constitution.”
Hooven & Allison Co. v. Evatt. Thus, in Hooven, it is readily discernible that there are two literal UNITED STATES consisting of definitive landmasses or geographical areas.
The third definition  in Hooven consists of the fifty States united under the Constitution. The second definition  designates the geographical area consisting of the District of Columbia and all territory over which the political sovereignty of the UNITED STATES extends. Congress expresses the sovereignty of this second UNITED STATES under authority of Article 1, §8, Clause 17 and 18, and Article 4, §3, Clause 2 of the Constitution with no constitutional restrictions placed on said plenary powers. Congress, in legislating for the District and its Territories, always defines the words “State” and “United States” in its public laws to only include such geographical areas.
Col. Edward Mandell House, who was the agent provocateur of Rothschild, the head of the European Central Banks, was assigned to oversee the President and the Congress in the implementation of the central bankers’ plans. House is attributed with giving direction and strategy to be implemented by the president and the senators to enslave the American people with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act and Amendments 16 and support for the legal presumption that the American people had volunteered to participate in the United States democracy was legislated with the 17th Amendment in 1913 in that participation in federal elections for U.S. Senator established the legal presumption necessary in determining that you were a federal citizen.
The scheme also provided for the control of the courts via the 1913 creation of the American Bar Association, whose parent organization was the European International Bar Association, which was the creation of Rothschild. This allowed the International Bankers to control the practice of law, in that the only ones permitted to practice before the courts were those who were educated under their brand of law, which was only Admiralty and Contract law. Common law of the people was to be replaced as it gave the natural man many jurisdictional protections from the bankers’ legislation.
When the Congress made its first attempt to throw out the common law and replace it with Admiralty law, the Supreme Court rejected the proposed rules of court, explaining that the proposed rules would bring into existence a national police state. So, Roosevelt stacked the high Court and waited for a case upon which the demise of the common law could be accomplished.
Erie v. Tompkinscame along in 1938 and gave the court the opportunity that the Constitution did not. Thereafter, Common law at the federal level was to be no more.
The 1930s were an eat, drink and be merry time, with the majority of the population living the good life with no care in the world and no attention to what was happening in Congress. The stock market crashed, and those not on the inside were not warned to take their money out of the market and, as a result, lost everything. This set the stage for socialism and Roosevelt’s New Deal. It was a new deal, all right – a one-sided deal, as you are about to learn.
Contract law is above the Constitution and under the jurisdiction of Equity/Admiralty courts, so the governments began to contract with everyone. The 1930s saw federal legislation providing for the registration of babies through applications for birth certificates. Government workers could get maternity leave with pay. The States pushed for registration of cars through applications for certificates of title and for registration of land through registration of deeds of trust. Constructive trusts were created secretly by adhesion contracts, giving benefits either present or future and as a result, each of the people blindly walked into the trap of United States democracy and its jurisdiction by the signing of contracts, thereby agreeing to be sureties for the debts of the United States and collateral for the Federal Reserve Bank, Inc.
The Great Depression supplied the diversion needed to keep the people’s attention away from what the government was doing. The Social Security program was implemented, along with numerous other socialistic “New Deal” programs that invited the American people to volunteer to be the sureties behind the United States’ new registered property and adhesion contracts through the legal presumption that they were 14th Amendment United States subjects. We are permitted to contract with anyone, even the government, so for the promise of benefits from the federal government, we traded away our unalienable rights and put on a mask of the subject person.
Massive registration of property through United States agencies, including the States of the Union as instruments of the federal government in bankruptcy, assured the United States and its officers and instrumentalities (the states) that they would become wealthy beyond their wildest expectations, as predicted by Colonel House.
Edward Mandell House had this to say in a private meeting with Woodrow Wilson (President, 1913-1921) From the private papers of Woodrow Wilson:
“[Very] soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a National system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer not being able to work and earn a living. They will be our Chattel and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges. They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two would figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges.
This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor or to this fraud which we will call “Social Insurance.” Without realizing it, every American will insure us for any loss we may incur and in this manner; every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and, we will employ the high office of the President of our dummy corporation to foment this plot against America.”
All of this was done without disclosure of the material facts that accompanied each application for contract registration.
That fraud would have been sufficient reason to charge all the United States officers and elected officials with treason, unless a legal remedy could be legislated for the people to recoup their property and collect for the damages they suffered as a result of the fraud if ever discovered.
If a legal remedy was available, and the people chose not to or failed to secure their remedy, no charge of fraud could be brought, even to a common law court. The United States Congress needed only to provide the legal remedy. It was not required to explain it or even tell the people where the remedy could be found; if they did that then the entire conspiracy would be revealed and every cherry tree in Washington would be decorated with hanging bodies of Congressmen and bankers. The attorneys did not even have to be taught about the remedy in law school. Remaining quiet, Congress had plausible deniability if the people discovered the deception. The majority of the legislators did not have to have the intricate details of the law explained to them regarding the bills they were passing; the pressure was on by the leadership to pass this legislation, and that was all they needed to know.
If the people failed to exercise due diligence, the United States became the holder in trust of all the land and labor of every subject in the American Empire. If, however, the people did discover their legal remedy, the United States would have to honor it and release the registered property back to the people, but only if the people were cognizant that they had a remedy, and only if they exercised it in the proper technical manner. It was a great plan, and it has worked for over 70 years.
Having established plausible deniability, even if the people became enlightened that they had a remedy and pursued it, the attorneys, judges, and legislators could claim that they did not understand the people’s claims, especially if the technical requirements for achieving it were not followed pursuant to the statutory requirements. Requiring the public schools to teach civics, government, and history classes out of federally-approved politically correct textbooks written by the publishing houses owned by the owners of the Federal Reserve would assure that the people would not discover the remedy for a long time, if ever.
Passing state and federal statutes that subjugated the citizens to rules and regulations added another firewall of protection against the people ever discovering their remedy. The media, owned by the same people who own the Federal Reserve, was fashioned to report politically correct news day after day ad nausea, until few people believed there was any hope for relief from the system and totally forgot all of their previous history of liberty and freedom.
If the people could be separated from their money and their time in pursuit of the remedy, it could be obscured long enough so that that the solutions could be lost in millions of law library books across the country and equitable estoppel by laches could be argued against the few who discovered it.
The majority of elder Americans know there is something terribly wrong with all the conflicts in the law and the “facts” they were taught in school; not so with the newer generation. How can the American people be free and subject to a government’s fancy at the same time?
In 1933 the United States established its insurance policy with HJR 192 and recorded it in the Congressional Record. The Federal Register publication of that law was not required at that time. An Executive Order issued on April 5, 1933, paved the way for the withdrawal of all gold in the United States. Representative Louis T. McFadden brought formal criminal charges on May 23, 1933, against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Secretary of the United States Treasury (Congressional Record May 23, 1933, page 4055- 4058). Those charges are still not acted upon and are still in committee. HJR 192 passed on June 3, 1933. Mr. McFadden claimed on June 10, 1933: “Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks…”
HJR 192 is the insurance policy that protects the legislators from conviction for fraud and treason against the American people. It also protects the American people from damages caused by the actions of the United States.
HJR 192 provides that the one with the gold paid the bills. It removed the requirement that the United States subjects and employees had to pay their debts with gold. It actually prohibited the inclusion of any clause in all subsequent contracts that would require payment in gold. It also cancelled the clause in every contract written prior to June 5, 1933, that required an obligation to be paid in gold. It provided that the United States subjects and employees could use any type of coin and currency to discharge a public debt as long as it was in use in the normal course of business in the United States.
For a time, United States Notes were the currency used to discharge debts because there was 40% gold and 60% Treasury guarantees behind the currency, but later the Federal Reserve and the United States provided a new medium of exchange through paper notes and debt instruments that could be passed on to a debtor’s creditors to tender the debtor’s debts. Tender and payment are not the same. Tender merely changes the legal character of the debt, where gold and silver would extinguish the debt.
In the 1950s, the Uniform Commercial Code was adopted in most of the States as a means of unifying the generally accepted procedures for handling the new legal system of dealing with commercial fictions as though they were real. Security instruments replaced substance as collateral for debts. Security instruments could be supported by presumptive adhesion contracts. Debt instruments with collateral and accommodating parties could be used instead of money. Money and the need for money was disappearing, and a uniform system of law had to be put in place to allow the courts to uphold the security instruments that depended on commercial fictions as a basis for compelling payment or performance. All this was accomplished by the mid-1960s.
The commercial code is merely a codification of accepted and required procedures which all people engaged in commercial activity must follow. The basic principles of commerce had been settled thousands of years ago, but were refined as commerce become more sophisticated over the years. In the 1900s, the age-old principles of commerce shifted from substance to form.
Presumption became a major element of the law. Without giving a degree of force to legal presumption, the new direction in enforcing commercial claims could not be supported in Equity/Admiralty courts and had no chance in common law. If the claimants were required to produce their claims every time they tried to collect from the people, they would seldom be successful.
The principles articulated in the commercial code combine the methods of dealing with substantive commercial activity with presumptive commercial activity. These principles work as well for us as they do for the entrenched powers. The rules are neutral and respect neither side of a dispute, as they are ancient in origin.
The entrenched powers that engineered the scheme for the people to register their property and person with the United States and its instrumentalities gained control of the peoples’ property and right to property through registration and licensing.
The United States became the trustee of the titles to everything. The definition of “property” is the interest one has in a thing. The thing is the principal. The property is the interest in the thing. Profits (interest) made from the property of another belong to the owner of the thing. The International Bankers made profits by pledging as surety the registered property of the people in commercial markets, but the profits do not belong to the Bankers. The profits belong to the owners of the thing. That is always the people. The corporation government show only ownership of paper – titles to things. The substance cannot appear in the fiction. Sometimes the fiction is manufactured to appear as substance, but fiction can never become substance; it is an illusion. This is why the proper spelling of your name in upper and lower case is never used in court documents.
The ALL CAPS spelling represents the legal fiction, which the government holds title to and jurisdiction over, as it is the creation of the government. The substance cannot appear in the fiction. What will happen when you appear and claim the name ascribed on the complaint? You and the fiction become one and the same; you have changed masks from a natural person to an artificial one.
The profits from all the registered property had to be put into trust for the benefit of the owners. If the profits were put into the general fund of the United States and not into separate trusts for the owners, the scheme would evidence fraud. The profits for each owner could not be co-mingled. If the owner failed to use his available remedy (fictional credits held in a constructive trust account, fund, or financial ledger) to benefit from the profits, it would not be the fault of the government or their banking co-conspirators. If the owner failed to learn the law that would open the door to his remedy, it would not be the fault of the swindlers. The owner is responsible for learning the law so he understands that the profits from his property are available for him to discharge debts or charges brought against his legal fiction person by the United States or other commercial entities.
If the United States has the “gold,” the United States pays the bills (from the trust account, fund, or financial ledger). The definition of “fund” is money set aside to pay a debt. The fund is there to discharge the public debts attributed to the United States subjects, but ultimately back to the accommodating parties – the American people. The national debt is that which is due to the owners of the registered things – the American people – as well as to other creditors.
If the United States owes a debt to the owner of the thing, and the owner is presumed (by accommodation) to owe a public debt to the United States, the logical thing is to ask the United States to discharge that public debt from the trust fund. The way for the United States to get around having to pay the public debts for the people is to claim the owner cannot be an owner if he agreed to be the accommodating party for a debtor person. If the people are truly the principal, then they know how to handle their financial and political affairs (unless they have never been taught). If the owner admits by his actions of ignorance that he is an accommodating party, he has taken on the debtor’s liabilities without getting consideration in exchange. Here lies the fiction again.
The owner of the thing does not have to knowingly agree to be the accommodating party for the debtor person; he just has to act like he agreed. The legal presumption that he is the accommodating party is strong enough for the courts to hold the owner of the thing liable for a tax on the thing he actually owns.
Debtors may have the use of certain things, but the things belong to the creditors. The creditor is the master. The debtor is the servant. The Uniform Commercial Code is very specific about the duties and responsibilities a debtor has. If the owner of the thing is presumed to be a debtor because of his previous admissions and adhesion contracts, he is going to have a difficult time convincing the United States that it has a duty to discharge public debts for him. In addition, the federal courts are staffed with loyal judges who will look for every mistake the people make when trying to use their remedy and use the mistake against them in dismissing any action they bring.
There is a very powerful tool the people can use to help them get to the real issues when they find themselves up against the power of presumption.
The law provides for either party of an admiralty action to object to a line of questioning. When you object in that court setting, you must tell the judge why you object or he will overrule your objection. The reason is: “This line of questioning assumes facts not in evidence.”
You can request that evidence of the Plaintiff ’s claim be entered into evidence. If the judge overrules this fundamental principle of establishing subject matter jurisdiction and the right to make a charge, there is a major procedural error in the proceeding. Your objection has preserved the error for appeal. Granting in personam jurisdiction to get to the bottom of the issue is vastly better than arguing, “I’m not that person.”
The owner of the thing, after learning the law and discovering who he is in relation to the United States, can file a UCC 1 Financing Statement and Security Agreement registering his interest in the artificial entity (PERSON) the United States created after Mom applied for a birth certificate. That was the act of registering her biological property, her baby (substance), with the State. The United States holds the paper title (form), not the substance(baby). Until your Financing Statement is filed, the United States is the holder of the title to the artificial entity. Its name is spelled in all capital letters – JOHN HENRY DOE.
When John Henry Doe files the Financing Statement supported by a Security Agreement signed by the artificial entity (JOHN) and the owner (John), he becomes the holder in due course of the title to JOHN. The UCC and the State commercial law are very specific about the effect of a registered security interest. It has priority over most other interest claimed (only claimed) in the same thing. The evidence that is missing in the court is the registered claim over the person (JOHN).
The owner also must notify the Secretary of the Treasury that he is going to handle his own affairs in the future. He can file a “Bill of Exchange” with the Secretary through which he exchanges his person’s accepted-for-value birth certificate and social security numbers for a charge-back of all the presumed charges brought against his person since the birth certificate was issued.
The owner can also reserve a non-cash Federal Reserve routing number and any number of non-cash instrument numbers by filing an amendment to his Financing Statement or just including his reservation on his original Financing Statement. Each bank account opened in the name of the owner’s person has a routing number. If an account is open, it is available to process cash items. If you write a check to the plumber, it can be converted to cash at your bank. You cannot write a check on an account that has been closed.
Those accounts and their routing numbers are reserved for non-cash items for the person (JOHN) that opened the account originally. Accounts that have been closed by the bank, instead of the person, should not be used for non-cash items. Once this is done, you are in a position to begin receiving reimbursements against the obligation the United States owes to you for money and time it has received that belong to you.
The owner of registered things who has learned the law and what his rights are and who has filed his Financing Statement, Security Agreement, and Bill of Exchange, and reserved his non-cash account routing numbers, can issue an instrument indicating his UCC registration number, his registered Federal Reserve routing number, the name of the public party making a charge against his person, and the amount of the debt to be discharged.
Think of the whole transaction in relation to a hot air balloon.
The balloon represents your public person (JOHN), which is an empty entity that can function within the public maize of fiction, transmitting benefits from the public to you in the private IF it is filled with hot air. You cannot go into the public because you are not a fiction. JOHN has no lift until it is filled with hot air. That hot air comes from an IRS default notice, court judgment, credit card bill, utility bill, traffic ticket, or some other instrument that has a $ amount and JOHN’s name on it as the presumed debtor.
The bill is the hot air. It fills up the dead JOHN. You can now discharge JOHN and put JOHN’s accrual account with the charging party back to a zero balance. You as the secured party over the assets put up as security by JOHN to you as collateral for the debt JOHN owes you, can discharge JOHN with a negotiable instrument for the same $ amount as the charging instrument.
The charging party that receives your non-cash item can 1) process it through a United States department, 2) give it to a third party, 3) keep it to increase its liquidity.
Your claim to being one of the people must appear on a public register (the Secretary of State); you must have an account with the banker for the United States (the Secretary of the Treasury); You must have given notice of your reservation of routing numbers through the national debt accountant (the Federal Reserve); You must refer to the insurance policy that covers your remedy (House Joint Resolution 192);
You must make your instrument negotiable so it can be used by the United States for a profit; You must transmit your instrument back into the public through an agent (your registered debtor); You must use only a non-cash item for this exchange; You must do a banker’s acceptance of a charging instrument to attach to your non-cash item; and You must Understand you are not getting something for nothing.
Reserving your routing numbers to use on your discharge instruments is not as difficult as was thought during the previous decade. Every person has opened bank accounts in the past that have been closed for one reason or another. On the bottom of the checks for those closed bank accounts there is a routing number to the particular bank and a routing number to the particular account. Each check has a check number.
When you put the check number together with the two routing numbers, you have a means of tracking each item that goes through the worldwide banking system. The routing numbers on the bottom of the checks from accounts your person has closed will never be reassigned. They are attached to your person’s NAME forever and kept in the records of the Federal Reserve.
Bank accounts that are still open and active are used for cash items.
Checks written on these open bank accounts can be taken to the particular bank and CASHED. This is the type of instrument used in commercial transactions everyday. There is a fund attached to the check from which the debt evidenced by the check can be paid.
Bank accounts that are no longer open and active cannot be used to process cash items. They can be used only to process non-cash items. They require special handling. Title 12 of USC and CFR explain how and when receiving banks are to process non-cash items. A closed bank account associated with your debtor’s NAME has routing numbers that can route your discharge instrument through the Federal Reserve to reduce the national debt to you and increase the balance of the bank account of the party that is charging your debtor. It is a win-win situation.
The charging party is instructed to mail the discharge instrument to the Secretary of Transportation. Title 46 has sufficient evidence to support the proposition that the Secretary is the trustee over some or all vessels mortgaged by the United States. If your debtor PERSON is presumed to be a vessel, it is regulated by the Secretary of Transportation through the Maritime Ministries Administration; that is the proper party to assist in processing your non-cash item. The Secretary of Transportation can forward the item to the Secretary of the Treasury, who already has been notified to prepare for non-cash activity in your treasury direct account on the Bill of Exchange.
The Secretary of the Treasury is directly related to the Federal Reserve.
Between the Treasury and the Federal Reserve, your non-cash item can be directed to the proper parties to settle the account and get everyone into that quid pro quo position we want.
The United States and its co-business partners are debtors to you. You are the creditor, not only over your debtor PERSON, but also over the United States, the legal title-holder over the registered things to which you are the equitable title-holder. You are the primary creditor, so if the United States has other creditors, like the international bankers, they cannot jump to the front of the line. Their claims are subordinated to your claims if your claims are registered and if you understand the law surrounding what you are doing.
Now that you have a better understanding of the “person” (mask) and “contract” and “jurisdiction” let’s get back to the issue of sovereignty.
It is important to differentiate between sovereign power and unalienable rights. Sovereign power is subject to nothing, except what the sovereign expressly agrees to or consents may be done. Unalienable rights are simply those rights which cannot be taken away as they are deemed to be God-given and fundamental, without which no civilized society can exist, but they may be waived.
In this context it may be understood how the people may remain sovereign, even in the area where the federal government exercises its sovereign jurisdiction. By consent or by waiver, the people may be without those fundamental rights, as in those Federal jurisdictions; at least it appears that the federal government operates on that ideology. (Hooven v. Evatt, 324 US 652, 671-672)
Although there might be some waiver of rights, it is impossible to convert the natural born (sovereign) Citizen of this country into a subject (person) of his government. (M’Ilvaine v. Coke’s Lessee, 8 US 209)
The framers acknowledged that the proposed Constitution for the united States of America was to be a document of “We the People,” not of the States. It was to become a compact that provided for the people to be its beneficiaries in perpetuity. It was intended as a compact between the individual Citizen on the one hand and, on the other hand, the people as a whole, acting through their representatives. (Glass v. The Sloop Betsey, 4 US [4 Dall.] 8)
The Constitution was a compact drawn between the people and effective between the states. It created a union of States, not a union of people.
The people are not members of the union; only the States are members.
This is critical to your understanding of your proper relationship with the government. One is a Citizen of his state. National Citizenship is derived from state citizenship. Implicit to this process is the recognition that the true sovereignty was not with the States, but rather with the people as a whole. (Gaines et al. v. Buford, 31 KY 481, 500-501)
By virtue of this contract, three concepts of “United States” came into existence. First is the concept that the United States is a sovereign nation in the family of nations. This requires foreign governments to deal with the government of the United States of America rather than with each State or Citizen separately. Second is the idea that the United States is sovereign over its territory. This refers to the sovereignty of the government over that territory that is subject to its exclusive legislation, not to the territory of the fifty States. This is usually conceived to be the political jurisdiction of the United States. Third, the term is merely the collective name of the fifty States which are united under the Constitution. Federal sovereignty is not sovereignty over “We, the People.”
Everything in our system operates on a contract principle. We give something to government and get something in return. If there is no benefit, there is not reciprocal obligation. It is a maxim of contract law that a contract is not enforceable, lacking equal consideration inuring to both parties of the agreement. No state and no citizen surrendered any sovereignty to any government. It was merely agreed that the national government, the state government and the people would be bound to obey proper laws made under the authority of that compact. They would suffer penalties if they did not.
This is a common law viewpoint applicable among free men. It does not make the sovereign people subject to their government. The beneficiaries and their descendants remain bound because the compacts have created governmental entities pertaining to specific territories. If a person lives in the territory, either he obeys the common law of the territory thereof, or he is an outlaw.
Article 1 of the Constitution deals with the structure and powers of Congress. If Congress does not have a power to legislate in some area, then generally the other branches have no powers there either. If there is no law, there is nothing for the executive branch to enforce and nothing for the judiciary to interpret. The function of Congress is to make our laws, to the extent that the Constitution permits law making, and to make the laws for the municipal government of the District of Columbia, where there are no constitutional restrictions.
Article 1 also deprives the states of power to do those things for which the national government was formed. Our government is a limited government and this is made clear by the fact that it can act only within those powers that are specifically delegated. The enumerated rights are set forth in Article 1, Section 8, and Article IV, Section 3. By this enumeration Congress has power to make laws insofar as they are necessary and proper for the exercise of its enumerated power.
Particularly important is the power given to the government to have exclusive legislative jurisdiction over the seat of government and such other lands as are ceded to the government by the states for its military functions. This is a power limited in its territorial scope, but not otherwise. Because this special power has no constitutional limitation, unlike Congress’ other enumerated powers, it is similar to the power of a sovereign. It is called the “political jurisdiction” of the United States. It operates in Washington, D.C., and in all areas ceded by the states to the federal government as enclaves. A similar power operates in the possessions and territories of the United States, but it has its source in a combination of the property power and the power to acquire territory. This is described as inherent powers. Sovereign power,like admiralty law, is deemed a necessity in those “uncivilized” territories.
Such sovereign power of the federal government does not operate within the fifty states. As we will explore later, all federal courts are of Admiralty jurisdiction.
Constitutional guarantees do not generally apply in the sovereign federal areas, except insofar as Congress chooses to enforce them. Although a fundamental right should still exist since it is deemed unalienable, Congress can take the position that since “We the People” delegated sovereign power, all of the people must be subjects in those areas, because there cannot be two sovereigns ruling in the same place.
Having such power, it was not hard to predict that Congress would expand its power beyond proper Constitutional limitations. This expansion of power is manifestly evident in the application of the taxing power. That power is limited by the Constitution: direct taxes must be apportioned and indirect (excise) taxes must be uniform. These limitations, however, do not apply where the government has sovereign power. While enumerated powers are exercised all over the country, they are limited by the Constitution. The sovereign powers in territories and areas ceded by the states are not limited by the Constitution, and those citizens have little or no Constitutional protection.
Congressional power over federal funds has also been used to expand government authority. This is done by virtue of the practice of the federal government placing conditions on its grants of federal assistance. After all, the sovereign Citizen has the right to contract, even with the federal government.
If you sell a right, it is gone, even though “unalienable.” By this process the federal government has invaded every conceivable facet of the lives of citizens within the fifty states, regardless of the Constitution and its restrictions.
States, individuals and companies have all surrendered rights in exchange for Federal Reserve notes (fiat money) by entering into invisible contracts with the federal government. They do so by the use of such things as bank accounts, Social Security accounts, credit cards, etc. These invisible contracts have given the Federal Government jurisdiction over the majority of Americans, tried in Federal Equity/Admiralty Courts where the Constitution has no standing, as you have a contract with the government, and you never even knew it.
Powers not delegated to government by the Constitution belong to the people except to the extent that the people in their State constitutions have given them to States. The reality is that government has grabbed a lot more power than was given them under the Constitution and the Supreme Court has ratified the seizure. The Supreme Court in 1932 decided that any law enacted by Congress or the States was not open to challenge by anyone who had received any benefit under such law. Nor could the law be invalidated if there were some way to construe or apply such law in a manner not in conflict with constitutional limitations. (Ashwander v. T.V.A.(1932) 297 US 288)
However, whenever either a voluntary act or a questionable law appears to deprive the citizen of an unalienable natural right, if the Citizen is not aware that such is the effect of that act or law, the courts must prevent such deprivation. The Supreme Court has ruled that an unconscious and unintended waiver of any such right does not strip the Citizen of that right, but the district courts continually disregard that principle.
An example of the distinction is given by the Supreme Court in its requirement for unsworn declarations under penalty of perjury, located at 28 USC 1746. There is a different declaration for one who is within the United States used on all IRS 1040 Forms and one who is without the United States.
What is the only way one can be guilty of perjury? If one tells a lie under Oath or Oath of Office, period! There is no other way. How then can a Citizen who is filing his 1040 tax form be under penalty of perjury if he is not under Oath? The answer is he can’t. The only ones who can file that form are government employees who are under Oath of Office.
I sincerely hope you have learned the importance of further study because we do not have much time left to protect our lives and property. In my humble conclusion, I would approve a group of Americans who have the money to get together and capture these scumbag Bankers and burn them alive. The number of human beings who have lost everything including their lives in incalculable. They must surely be SATAN’S offspring. I will assist any and all who declare their willingness to regain their natural status through more study material as I discover it. In the mean time you can do your duty by sending a link of this article to every person you can think of, regardless if you know them or not. To sit on your hands after reading this information is the crudest thing you could ever do. Take back your person!

I have said it many times in the past — when elitist criminals start openly admitting to their schemes it means that they are ready to pull the plug on the current system. They simply don’t care anymore who knows their plans because they think that victory is inevitable.
There have been more subtle and less prominently published calls for a “new world order” in the past, to be sure. However, at no other time have I seen international financiers and their puppet political mouthpieces so brazen about calling for global centralization than in the wake of the successful Brexit referendum. It is as if the Brexit flipped a switch in the existing narrative and set loose a flood of new propaganda, all aimed at convincing the general public that central banks must combine forces and act as one institution in order to combat an economic crisis that isn’t even visible to laymen yet.
Though I predicted the activation of this propaganda campaign in my article “Brexit: Global Trigger Event, Fake Out Or Something Else?,” published before the referendum vote took place, the speed at which it is developing is truly astonishing.
Now, under the current circumstances of the previous week’s market rally post-Brexit (driven by hopes of central bank intervention and extremely low trading volume) one would think that the globalist calls for total centralization of financial policy management don’t make much sense. Where is this “crisis” that the bankers keep warning about?
As I outlined in great detail in recent articles, I believe the Brexit to be a partial trigger event for a future market disaster that has been engineered for many years. That is to say, a worldwide financial calamity has been deliberately staged in advance, and the Brexit is meant to act as a scapegoat for it. The fundamentals of the global economy have been increasingly negative since 2008, and the only “indicator” left to appear positive has been stocks.
There are plenty of people out there who assume that equities have escaped without consequence after the UK referendum because of the pre-4th of July rally. However, I would suggest they not get too comfortable with the hollow low volume spike in stocks at this early stage.
These kinds of rallies should not be a surprise. They were common during the derivatives and credit crash that struck in 2008 after Bear Sterns and Lehman. Ultimately, stocks are an irrelevant faith driven indicator, and the fundamentals will always win in the end.
As Forbes notes in a surprisingly honest analysis — the “Lehman moment” of 2008 was not really a “moment” at all. The derivatives crash was driven by numerous frailties within the debt bubble structure; Lehman was just a higher profile element of a more chaotic mess. When Lehman’s bankruptcy went public, equities took a considerable dive, rather similar in velocity to that which occurred right after the Brexit referendum. But, only a week later stocks had rallied back near the exact highs seen before Lehman had folded.
The psychology of market investors is to always first go with what they are familiar with and what they have been conditioned to do, much like Pavlovian dogs. Investors today, as then, were conditioned to “buy the dip no matter what”. Of course, once reality and the fundamentals set in, stocks were back in free-fall only two weeks later.
The Brexit is not going away, and the negative effects it heralds are still barely visible to the mainstream. This process is going to be actively weighing on the markets for months as investors continue to lose their blind faith in the system. We haven’t even begun the party yet, and this is assuming there are no other catalyzing moments around the corner.
Beyond the mechanics of the economy, the elites themselves are often a good litmus test for predicting what is about to take place within the stock casino and outside the stock casino.
The fact that the mainstream financial media is now awash in calls for extreme measures in central bank coordination and numerous elites warning of greater crisis should be of some concern to the public. Just as the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) warned of a crash back in 2007 and early 2008 and were proven “correct,” they have also been warning of a crash in 2016. Post-Brexit, the chorus of “warnings” from the elites has exploded. They are rarely wrong about economic crisis exactly because they are the people that create the conditions for crisis in the first place.
George Soros continues to claim that the Brexit has “accelerated a financial-market crisis” even after the latest stock rally.
Bloomberg, in support of European Central Bank President Mario Draghi, published an article titled “Draghi Wishes For A New World Order Populists Will Love To Hate.” Bloomberg later removed the word “New” from the title.
The article repeats a rising call by central bankers around the world to stop concerning themselves with “domestic” policies and problems and start coordinating globally to deal with “global problems.” The BIS ALREADY controls the policy making decisions of all other central banks as admitted in the infamous Harpers expose on the BIS titled “Ruling The World Of Money.” But this is never mentioned by Draghi or Bloomberg.
Interestingly, the BIS is now arguing not only for global policy coordination, but also GLOBAL RULES for all central banks. If the BIS already controls the policy decisions of the Federal Reserve, the ECB, and every other central bank member, then why do they want “global rules” put in place for those same central banks?
They are doing this because the goal, the end game, is for the general masses to accept and even demand a global central bank, either in the form of the BIS or the IMF, or perhaps both of them combined into a single entity. Once again, the elites are using the Hegelian problem-reaction-solution strategy to manipulate the public into wanting globalist control.
The BIS has been building up to this moment for quite some time. In May, for example, BIS chief economist Claudio Borio argued that a “new global monetary order” was needed to replace the dollar system. This new system would prevent crisis by reigning in all national central banks under rules which would force them to act in a coordinated fashion, apparently under the administration of the BIS itself. Now it would seem the central bankers have the beginnings of their “crisis” which they clearly plan to put to good use.
In yet another recent article Bloomberg calls for central banks to “kiss their domestic bias goodbye”; arguing that national economies are now so “intertwined” that central banks all need to work off a single set of guidelines in support of the global economy rather than individual national economies.
On the day after the Brexit vote, China stated its desire for the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) to work closely with World Bank. For years I have been pointing out that the Chinese never had any intention for the AIIB to become a counter-system to the IMF or World Bank and that the Chinese were working with the globalists, not against them. Now we have open confirmation.
The Chinese premier also warned of a “butterfly effect” leading to crisis after the Brexit, and called for “enhanced coordination” among all the economies of the world.
European Union officials are going for broke as they suggest the formation of a European “super state” in the wake of the UK referendum. This system would essentially erase political boundaries and sovereign borders to make the EU a single entity in every capacity up to and including a single European army.
The amplified calls for total centralization and a “New World Order” go on and on, and I believe they are a blaring signal that something very ugly is about to happen.
Consider this: Central banks will never gain public support for globally centralized policy or a global economic authority unless they are proven right and a crash does indeed take place. The crash does not necessarily need to be immediate and “total”, as some liberty movement activists assume. It is more likely to be gradual and micromanaged, though still resulting in a level of suffering in certain regions not seen since the Great Depression.
More bank coordination requires more chaos and examples of “conflicting policies,” which will probably take the form of “currency wars” among certain nations. The elites must conjure a theater in which some central banks work at cross purposes and muck up any potential recovery. They can then argue to the public that a single internationally recognized and obeyed global banking authority is needed to prevent this sort of thing from ever happening again.
The concept of central banks “working globally” rather than domestically could only be sold to the masses if a fiscal disaster was triggered on a global scale that outmatched the needs of any single nation state. Each central banker initiative suggested after the Brexit requires a financial implosion in order to be justified.
In my next article I will be listing the many reasons why I believe the globalist plan for centralization and a NWO is destined to fail. This does not mean, though, that extensive effort and sacrifice will not be necessary in the near future on our part. For now, vigilance is our best defense. The elites are telling us exactly what is about to happen through their very behavior and statements. It is time for those who are aware of the bigger picture to start listening if they are not already, and prepare accordingly.

By Anna Von Reitz
I have been asked (indeed, hounded) by people desperately searching for reliable guides to inform their actions in favor of restoring the land-based and lawful government we are all owed.
This in turn requires some basic understandings, and rather than explain this to each of 390 million people, please read, post, and pass this on.
Clarification Everyone—- Please Note!
The Handbook from the Michigan General Jural Society I mistakenly released is ONLY a draft of a revised Handbook that will shortly be released as an Official version. Please remove the link and publish this explanation. I thought I had the finished version with the link in the sources article, but it is not quite ready yet. Everyone stay tuned and please be patient. It is on the way and I will announce the release and provide access to it.
All forms of law except Natural Law (Law of Gravity, Law of Heredity, etc.) come from religion. This is because our religion establishes what we consider “right” and “wrong” and that in turn establishes our Law.
The Law of the Land in the Western World is based on the Mosaic Law of the Bible, which is common to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Ten Commandments are the basis of the Law of the Land, which in this country is American Common Law. The Constitution is also formed under Common Law and is called the “Law of the Land” by the Federal Government to distinguish it as the “law” that they must obey when dealing with us, the people of the United States, and our unincorporated states on the land known as the States of America.
Justices, popularly called “judges” in our Common Law Courts are NOT members of any Bar Association, do not hold any titles of nobility, and serve as either Magistrates (as when a Justice of the Peace performs a marriage) or Members of the Court (as when they pronounce the sentence required by the Trial Jury).
Common Law Justices aka “Judges” do not instruct juries in the sense of telling them what to do or in the sense of interpreting the Law— that is the job of the juries—-justices serve as a resource if juries have questions about court procedures and that sort of thing, but they do not interfere with or direct or seek to influence the juries in their determinations. Common Law Justices take their instructions from juries, both Grand Juries and Trial Juries.
The Law of the Sea is international in nature and is based on the Law Merchant derived from the Code of Hammurabi (Maritime “Commercial” Law) and the Law of the Sea (Admiralty) which derived from the Satanic Law of Sumeria and the Phoenicians— the source of the word “phony”. This is the “legal” system of the sea jurisdiction as opposed to the “lawful” system of the land. As you might expect, the Law of the Sea is based on deceit, as it derives from the worship of the Father of All Lies.
The judges in these courts are either business administrators or acting as priests of the Crown Temple. They are required to be Bar Association attorneys by the rules of their Jural Societies called Bar Associations and have taken Oaths of Nullification, known as the Kol Nidre, which according to the underlying religion of the Sea allows them to void any agreement they make, break their word with impunity and act deceitfully (commit fraud) without consequence. These characters “simulate” judicial proceedings so as to — in their own words in the Federal Code of Civil Procedure — give an “appearance” of justice. These judges use juries as props in a play, and basically bully and “direct” juries to deliver whatever outcome the judge wants.
Law of the Land = Our Father, Law of the Sea = Lucifer.
There is also the Law of the Air, which is global in jurisdiction, and ecumenical. It has only three laws: keep the peace, do no harm, treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. If you obey these Laws of the Air, you automatically fulfill all other laws and stand above any other form of law.
Now that you know where law comes from and realize the distinctions between American Common Law and the international Law of the Sea, you will not be surprised by the rich feast of information contained in the following highly recommended textbook:
The Excellence of the Common Law by Brent Winters, available on Amazon.com.
This is NOT an inexpensive book ($70), nor is it light-weight, but it is the most readable, responsible, and enlightening book I have ever read concerning the Common Law, and it very helpfully compares and contrasts the Common Law against the sea-going Civil Law. It is also written in a way that is careful to explain legalese in a way that laymen can easily understand. Anyone who wishes to participate in and restore the American Common Law Court System as a Justice or other Member of the Court — Clerks, Bailiffs,Sheriffs, Coroners— should read this book from cover to cover.
For assistance in setting up lawful county and state governments on the land jurisdiction of the United States and filling vacated Public Offices: I highly recommend the Michigan General Jural Society publication and handbook called “From De Facto to De Jure”.
LOOK BACK HERE FOR THE LINK TO THIS VERY IMPORTANT BOOK COMING SOON WHEN WE HAVE THE FINAL VERSION.
This invaluable handbook is available for free download from the Anti-Corruption Society website and I am attaching a pdf “final draft” copy of it to be published on my website and distributed to my email distribution list. This is the most correct and comprehensive guide of its kind ever published and following it ensures that both the people and their Jural Societies act within the correct rules and right capacities so that they cannot be accused of subversion or insurrection.
For assistance in threading through the confusing maze of deceptively similar names and other means of misrepresentation and mischaracterization that have plagued us all for generations, I highly commend the work of Robb Ryder, and especially his YouTube video entitled “The Stile of this confederacy” available at this link:
Spend the hour this video requires and take notes. Then revisit it and take notes again. Repeat until you are able to easily tell the difference between “United States of America” and “The United States of America” and the various other distinctions used to confuse and defraud Americans.
These resources will enable you to (1) restore the American Common Law Courts, (2) rebuild your lawful government, and (3) translate your way through the best attempts of lawyers to obscure the true parties of interest in any “legal” process.
God bless Brent Winters, Michigan General Jural Society, and Robb Ryder who have done inestimable service for their fellowman and especially for the American people who stand in such need of these helps and instructions now.

The bottom line of Anna’s work is, “the people determine what kind of government we have, not the government” It all depends on the people to correct what has happened to America and nothing will be accomplished sitting on your ass. GET BUSY AND LEARN COMMON LAW AND HOW TO IMPLEMENT IT.

By Paul Craig Roberts
When I was young, America still existed. No more. Not even the blather from the 4th of July can hide the obvious fact.
The young do not know that they have lost their country, because they are born into a time when the country is lost. To them that is normalcy.
Besides, the young are too busy texting and describing themselves, often intimately, on social media to be aware of the fate that awaits them, lost as they are in their insouciance.
When I was young, the police were the public’s friends. We could count on them to help us, not abuse us. False arrest was rare. Abuse of citizens even rarer. Today both are routine.
Over the years I have written about the transformation of the police from protectors of the public into abusers of the public.
Over these years I have received many letters from former policemen who write that they gave up their profession out of disgust of the corruption and unaccountable brutality, or as a result of fear that they would be forced to participate in the corruption or become a victim of it.
Generally speaking, police departments are unaccountable, because mayors, county commissioners, and state representatives, as well as US Congressmen, can be arrested on false charges and demonized by the presstitutes as “criminals.” What police reporter do you know who is not on the side of the police, the source of his stories? The presstitutes participate in the frame-ups.
America is a lost country. The total corruption of every public and private institution is complete. Nothing remains but tyranny. And lies. Endless lies.
Here is an excerpt of the latest letter from a former police officer, the kind of police officer in which we are in desperate need:
“Dear Dr. Roberts, I used to be a policeman myself. As I read the article (http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/07/03/this-is-how-they-protect-us/) about the TSA abuse of the handicapped young woman and her mother, the ugliness of this incident moved me to write to you. I became a police officer, in a major city, two days before my 21st birthday. I quit after 14 years as I had become disgusted with the entire profession.
“I remember one old Sgt., upon hearing that I was leaving, say, “Don’t they see what is happening? All of our best young men are quitting.” I guess I wasn’t alone.
“These TSA officers are not just brutal and unfeeling. They are also very stupid. This is what the rulers wanted. They didn’t want people who could think. They want people who would follow orders. Well, they have what they wanted.”
Don’t blame the cop’s folks, because you are the one’s that accepted this transition to tyranny. If was you and you alone who sat on your ass and watched football or dancing with the Stars instead of researching the demise of freedom. Perhaps you feel safer now that the cops are brutes with guns. Try doing some reading so you can understand the real instigators of this tyranny are mostly from Europe and they are called Investment Bankers! There are millions of articles you could have found with very little help, and your ignorance of them is why you accept this perversion. To you everything is A-OK because you don’t have the gumption to learn what kind of government we should have. When the bastards come to take you and your family to a safe place where there is food and water, remember how they suckered the Jews into cattle cars and gassed them to death. Do you honestly believe FEMA CAMPS are a safe heaven? Could you possibly be that stupid? Can’t you understand that before long real Americans are going to start taking back their Towns and States? There will be wailing and gashing of teeth in America as we devolve into another civil war. Which is all part of the Bankers plan. What better way to get rid of people who will not bend over a take it up the ass! American’s, you’re a bunch of fucking cowards, and should be deported to Russia or China where the rest of the worlds cowards live. All these years I though only FAGS took it up the Ass!
HAPPY FORTH OF JULY!
Since you don’t know what INDEPENDENCE MEANS
Independence Day What are we celebrating?
By Anna Von Reitz
I can hear the fireworks starting. It’s midnight in the wee early hours of the Fourth of July, 2016. Somewhere out in the dark, Americans are celebrating. Most of them call it “The Fourth of July” and don’t use the old fashioned name for it— “Independence Day”— but that is what I am thinking about tonight: independence.
Fourth of July rolls around once a year whether we want it to or not. The bunting appears. The fireworks start. The barbecues flame out. The beer explodes. The dogs and cats head for the basement….. yeah, it’s all good, but is that what it’s about?
Independence is something you have to choose. It’s an attitude, a mindset, a way of life, a choice. Independence is what you do when you stand on your own and take responsibility for your own life, your own government, your own country, your own planet.
Independence signals a coming of age.
And this is Independence Day.
Looking around me it seems that we have been lulled into a stupor of dependence— looking to the government to tell us how to live, expecting the government to provide our every need, turning to the mainstream media to tell us what to think and how to think it, parading in lock-step to every new fad of political correctness, conceiving of ourselves as helpless pawns or cogs in some vast machine, hopelessly grinding away so that once a year we can congratulate ourselves on being “free” long after we have forgotten what that really means.
A young friend of mine called earlier this evening. He said, “What do I have to celebrate?…..” and then he rattled off his own long list of things that are wrong with this country and with his countrymen and with everything in general. And then there was a very long pause in which his depression and sincerity stabbed at me like a thorn.
What kind of world had I given him, this young man who is just starting out?
Very clearly, he was disillusioned and feeling helpless and overwhelmed and ready to give up—-figuring that freedom isn’t possible or never was, like Camelot. Stop believing in it.
Chuck freedom in the bin with the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus, just another silly “tradition” for the amusement of grown-ups and greeting card company profits.
He had caught me by surprise at the end of a long day. For a moment my mind just whirred around as if it couldn’t find any traction—-and then, in my memory somewhere, I could hear someone whispering, “Freedom isn’t out there, it’s in here.”
It was a soft, dusky, female, African voice, sweet as summer rain and she repeated with great certainty —- “Freedom isn’t out there,” she said, touching the front of her cotton dress over her heart, “it’s in here, child. This is where freedom lives.”
Goldie Williams. She stood leaning on a wooden gate watching the fireworks in another time and place and she came back to rescue me today, from out of my memory of a night more than fifty years ago. I smiled broadly just thinking about her. Blueberry pie for the Fourth of July. Chasing fireflies and twirling sparklers.
It’s not about the external world, I told my young friend. It’s about choices. It’s about how you live your life. If you sit around waiting for someone or something else to set you free, that day is never going to come. You have to set yourself free, declare your own independence day, and when enough of us do that, there is nothing on earth that’s going to stop us. It’s in your own heart and mind that freedom lives. It’s a gift you give yourself, and nobody can take it away.
Thank you, Goldie, for reminding me where freedom lives and the real meaning of “Independence Day” —- just in time to pass it on to another generation of Americans.

By Dave Hodges
Old information has become new again. New information points to the fact that ex-Special Ops are responsible for the murder of almost 50 bankers and the new reports say they are working their way up the food chain. Process with me the various theories behind the killing of the bankers, but it all comes back to to the fact that the spirit of Trump has been present in many ex-military in this country and they are carrying out their agenda with a vengeance.
Last year, 48 prominent bankers died in the most interesting case of coincidental deaths or one of the most daring plots against the elite in modern history. In the most amazing of these assassinations, 57-year-old Richard Talley was found “with eight nail gun wounds to his torso and head” in his own garage. How could any human being accomplish doing this to themselves? This scenario has repeated itself 48 times in the past year.
This article explores the various theories on who is to blame for dead bankers.
Are Bankers Killing Bankers to Prevent Prosecution?
Wall Street has been transformed into history’s biggest Mafia-type casino in the history of the world. The megabanks have become more reckless than ever, and trillions of dollars are at stake and corners have been cut and laws have been broken in order to maximize profits. One prominent theory on who is killing the bankers, centers on the elite level bankers, who are killing their underlings. Why? Because these banker minions could turn state’s evidence in exchange for immunity from prosecution at some future date. According to some, in the final analysis, there is really not that much difference between how organized crime operates operate and how Wall Street carries out its business.
Those that believe that the bankers are killing their own to prevent future prosecutions, make a great deal of sense. However, they would be wrong! The bankers, who have effectively hijacked our government do not need protection from the very government in which they control virtually every aspect of power.
The bankers have, time and time again, committed egregious offenses against the American people and nobody goes to mail. Dyncorps and Wells Fargo Wachovia have been busted for child sex trafficking, paid a $400 million dollar fine, but nobody went to jail. MF Global stole over a billion dollars in secured investor accounts and nobody went to jail. The bail-outs were necessitated because Wall Street participated in the illegal ponzi scheme called “credit-swap derivatives”, and nobody went to jail. The MERS mortgage fraud has cheated millions out of maintaining ownership of their homes, hundreds of district attorneys are aware of this fact, and nobody has gone to jail. Goldman Sachs shorted stocks related to the airlines just prior to 9/11. They did the same with the Gulf Oil Explosion. And most recently, the thieves from Goldman Sachs shorted the price of gold and caused a massive dump of gold in April of 2013, just prior to the elite grabbing as much gold as they could as a hedge against the coming economic collapse. Also, don’t forget that for over a 100 years, the Federal Reserve has created counterfeit money out of thin air through fractional reserve banking and nobody has even been charged for an offense that would send the average American to prison for 20 years. The bankers are not killing each other to prevent prosecution from a system that they already control.
Is Putin Killing the Bankers?
One theory that is floating out there with regard to the assassinations of these bankers has to do with Putin masterminding a giant plot to kill Western bankers in retaliation for their influence in inhibiting the Russian flow of gas through Ukraine to Europe. Further, this same line of thinking postulates that Putin is also killing the bankers because of plunging oil prices, which is devastating the Russian economy as well as S&P lowering the credit rating of the Russian government.
This theory fails on its face because if Putin was carrying out these murders, he knows he is inviting World War III. And if he was going to invite World War III, why not just start World III on his terms at a time of his choosing in order to maximize his chances of winning. Clearly, Putin is not killing the bankers.
Another Disgruntled Set of Groups Who Have Motive to Kill Bankers
There is a common thread which runs through the Obama purge of 300+ senior military officers. The way that a senior command officer gets fired from the Obama controlled American military is to question leadership decisions. According to my sources, the most common leadership decisions that are questioned by members of the military have to do with worthless and expensive weapons systems which are serving to weaken the military in comparison to its potential foes, namely, China and Russia. These weapons systems are of course funded by the banking elite along with the loans underwritten by the megabanks.
Inferior Weapons System
Operating on the notion that the elite bankers want to destroy America in order to usher in world government, it becomes easy to see why the American military, military contractors, private armies and blackops are under attack. All aware people realize that Obama is the pawn of the bankers.
At the heart of Obama’s treasonous strategy to incrementally weaken the American military, the F-35 is at the heart of this dismantling of the American military as well as the destruction of the American military budget. The plane cannot climb and turn efficiently. It is a death trap for pilots who will be outmaneuvered by the faster and more efficient Russian and Chinese planes. The only winners in the F-35 controversy are Lockheed-Martin (the manufacturer of the F-35), the financial institutions underwriting the loans such as JP Morgan and the Chinese and Russian pilots that will shoot down these planes in the coming World War III. The military brass that dare to challenge one boondoggle after another (i.e. the expensive and inefficient F-22 which is now out of production), are shown the door. This systematic destruction of the American military extends to our nuclear weapons in which our launch policies have been compromised and a lack of budgeted maintenance money has been woefully decimated by Obama. Additionally, our suicidal rules of engagement in combat zones have also been a point of consternation among the military. The latter ultimately led to the sacking of three Afghanistan theater commanders.
In short, Obama’s policies have weakened the American military and destroyed the futures of many American military officers and he is doing so at the behest of the bankers.
Before we lay all of this at the feet of Obama, who does Obama work for? He works for the bankers who have hijacked our government.
Other Impacted Groups
Under Obama, our traditional covert and elite military forces have been assassinated (i.e. Seal Team Six) and much of the effectiveness of these units has been compromised.
Many in the military contracting business have experienced betrayals as well. Contracts have been shifted and work has been reallocated. Many of the military contractors now have chip on their shoulder. These groups have coalesced to form a type of Viet Cong resistance force.
Last year, I began to receive intelligence information from my best sources which stated that the disaffected three groups mentioned in this article (i.e. blackops, some military contractors and much of the former military leadership) are conspiring to exact vengeance against a banking system viewed as an extreme threat to not only personal military careers but to the country as a whole.
THIS IS A POPULIST MOVEMENT AMONG COVERT MILITARY ASSETS THAT PREDATES TRUMP AND BREXIT. SOME PEOPLE WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT
Today, I was to told that these killings are going to accelerate. Does anyone feel that the opposing forces are on a collision course and it is not going to end well?

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

Hillary Clinton Poll Testing Elizabeth Warren As Vice Presidential Pick…
By Ian Schwartz
Former Secret Service officer under Gary Byrne, author of the new book Crisis of Character, which examines Hillary Clinton’s conduct under his watch, appeared on Monday’s broadcast of FOX News Channel’s Hannity. Byrne talked Hillary Clinton’s temperament, her “terrified staff,” Bill Clinton carrying on affairs, drug use in the White House and more with host Sean Hannity.
Byrne said Clinton was feared by her staff and was notorious for her yelling. Byrne told Hannity that she has “blown up” at him and other Secret Service agents.
“She gets angry at things that are policy issues that, you know, take time to fix, and she’s got this attitude where she wants things fixed right now, immediately. She screams and yells at people,” Byrne said in an interview aired Monday night.
“There’s many examples that I site in my book where she blows up at people,” Byrne said. “Like I’ve said, she has blown up at me before, and agents, and her staff. At one time, I saw her staff so afraid to tell her about a mistake that was made. They weren’t upset about the waste of the mistake, ordering the wrong invitations, they were terrified that someone was going to have to tell Hillary Clinton that there was a mistake made.”
Byrne says Clinton’s behavior during his tenure in the Secret Service proved to him that she does not have the temperament for the Oval office.
BYRNE: I feel so strongly that people need to know the real Hillary Clinton and how dangerous she is in her behavior. She is not a leader. She is not a leader.
SEAN: She does not have the temperament?
BYRNE: She doesn’t have the temperament. She didn’t have the temperament to handle the social office when she was First Lady, she does not have the temperament.
SEAN: She’s dishonest.
BYRNE: She’s dishonest, she habitually lies, anybody that can separate themselves from their politics and review her behavior over the past 15 years…
SEAN: You’re going to be accused of being political.
BYRNE: Absolutely I’m sure I will be, I have already and it’s not.
SEAN: And what’s your answer?
Byrne: It’s got nothing to do as politics.
Byrne talked wrote about then-President Bill Clinton’s behavior, accusing him of carrying on multiple affairs and gave his perspective on the Monica Lewinsky affair and the scandal as it was happening. Byrne talked about several different affairs and how the Secret Service was expected to clean up after him.
HANNITY: How many women do you know, for sure, that he had affairs with in the Oval Office?
BYRNE: In the White House complex? I’d say easily three, maybe four, that I know of.
HANNITY: And you could see Monica Lewinsky from a mile away?
BYRNE: Sure. Sure.
HANNITY: You knew she wanted to be near him.
BYRNE: She was certainly manipulated some of the staff, other officers, myself to find out where he was—
HANNITY: She wasn’t manipulating if you saw through it.
BYRNE: Yeah, I agree. But I saw through it right away, but she was trying to place herself in his path, as he would move throughout the complex.
Byrne talks drug use in the White House:
HANNITY: Before I get into all the issues involving Bill and Hillary and what she knew and didn’t know and covering up and lying and you being put in the middle of all this. People use drugs the at the White House?
BYRNE: There were some issues. One of the ones I comment in my book, and I’m very careful not to tell too much about it because I don’t want — hopefully this person got on with their lives and lived a healthy life. But there was one particular staff member that they had come in in the morning, and they’d be so beat up and exhausted looking, worn out, exhausted to the point where they couldn’t be seen saying good morning. And they’d go in their office and go the bathroom and come out of the bathroom completely elevated and happy and smiling.
HANNITY: It was obvious you thought coke was being used?
BYRNE: I did. And later on, I was told that this particular person actually, they did something similar to an intervention and got her help and got her to a clinic, and I never did see her again. But I understand she did all right.
Hillary Clinton Poll Testing Elizabeth Warren As Vice Presidential Pick…
Posted on June 27, 2016 by sundance
Every action a Clinton takes is through the primary prism of self-serving political benefit. It’s all they know – it’s a DNA level attribute just like the color of their eyes, or any other genealogical trait.
Today’s political poll/wind-testing example is the appearance of Senator Elizabeth Warren. Remember, all the prior conversations about Team Clinton having to make radical adjustments to their political strategy based on the EU referendum?
The appearance of Senator goofy is not about attacking Trump; it is not about courting Bernie Sanders supporters, it is not about having a more authentic liberal ideologue on the ticket, it is not about gender or any specific “ism” per se’. No, this decision is entirely about trying to find the navigation markers which shifted amid the tectonic plates of Brexit politics.
Brexit rebukes the entire ideological worldview, outlook, and lifetime framework of Global Clinton. How is she going find a path to the presidency when such a seismic shift has taken place. That’s the motive here, nothing more.
Team Clinton is hopeful Warren will be a possible navigator, or at least give their team the appearance of knowing where the heck they need to head…. because, like all the other lifetime leftists, generational leftists, they’re lost right now. They have no reference points.
Their prior emphasis was on the wrong syllable.
The dialect is no longer understandable.
The magnetic political poles have shifted.
The compass is useless.
They need a stargazer….
….Enter, Goofy Pocahontas
As dozens of political consultants click, track, focus group optics, poll sub-sectors, measure metrics, analyze, study social media trends, question micro-targets and spend millions to determine political benefit.
It’s what they do.
It’s all they know.

When we talk about government corporations, we are talking about state-owned enterprises. The following definition from Wikipedia explains why it is so difficult to follow to fruition the articles about governments incorporating that I wrote almost two years ago. When you read the various definitions, it makes the articles easier to follow and makes understandable the West Virginia video and the Henry County, GA County Commissioner confusion – of not knowing they are one the boards of all these organizations.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A state-owned enterprise (SOE), also called state-owned company, state-owned entity, state enterprise, publicly owned corporation, government business enterprise, crown corporation, government-owned corporation, commercial government agency, public sector undertaking, or parastatal, is a legal entity that undertakes commercial activities on behalf of an owner, the government.
The legal status of SOEs varies from being a part of the government to being stock companies with the state as a regular stockholder. The defining characteristics of SOEs are that they have a distinct legal form and are established to operate in commercial affairs. While they may also have public policy objectives, SOEs should be differentiated from other forms of government agencies or state entities established to pursue purely nonfinancial objectives.
Government-owned corporations are common with natural monopolies and infrastructure, such as railways and telecommunications, strategic goods and services (mail, weapons), natural resources and energy, politically sensitive business, broadcasting, demerit goods (alcohol), and merit goods (healthcare).

Control of American States has been accomplished by stealth. There is no denying the fact that in the beginning the transformation from a Republican form of Government was done by the Elite International Bankers by stealth. It was easy because of the ignorance of the population and patriotic disinformation. They created a myth that would appeal to the average man/woman’s sense of self image and independence. The problem with all this is, (The Corporation has no responsibility to the People because they formed legal instruments that turned the people into a negotiable contract that they used for raising cash. THEY OWN US! At least; according to the law of the sea; which was not supposed to be used against the people. They used and manipulated our ever growing ignorance through control of public education and the lure of riches in this huge resource rich country. They pandered to our sense of individualism using wars to build a sense of ownership and patriotism in America. In a nut shell, we have been BEGUILED!
This so called government of the people, by the people, and for the people means “the stock holders of the various corporate names they have used for our country”. According to them, we do not own anything, because they have a lien on it all, including your person.
Now many good intentioned individuals using the power of the internet have arisen and supposedly are devising legal means of disassociating our person-hood from their lien on us, at the expense of denying what we have believed we were all of our life.
They ignore the emotional attachment we have lived with all our lives and tell us we can be free, if we separate from the monster corporation that claims to own us. As for me and my house we declare all of their instruments to be null and void due to non disclosure, and they can go straight to hell. Now, it depends on our willingness to die in support of our opinion, and we will. So now you know why I have never voted in their phony elections, and I never will, because they are all controlled by the elite Bankers, whether they know it or not. Our politicians all know better than to shit in their own nest.
If you want to try the legal common law method of escape, you better liquidate everything you own and buy silver bullion and gold depending on your accumulation of assets they say are theirs, hide the cache off-shore if you can find a secure vault not subject to their control, then go for it. Just don’t forget to be armed to the teeth, because the majority of your fellow Americans will rat you out in a heart beat.

The foreign policy for dealing with radical Islam pursued by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton can best be described as the intersection of ideology and incompetence.
Obama’s “amore” for radical Islam began in 2009, soon after his inauguration, when he ordered his administration not to support the Iranian Green Revolution after thousands of brave Iranian democracy protesters rose up against the brutal Khamenei regime.
According to the Wall Street Journal: “Obama administration officials at the time were working behind the scenes with the Sultan of Oman to open a channel to Tehran. The potential for talks with Iran-and with Mr. Khamenei as the ultimate arbiter of any nuclear agreement,” one that would prove to be a national security disaster for the US. As it turned out, Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement only strengthen the hard-liners; since completion of the agreement, Tehran has stepped up arrests of political opponents.
In 2010, Obama ordered his advisors to produce a secret report, later known as Presidential Study Directive-11 (PSD-11), which concluded that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting stable but authoritarian regimes in the Middle East and North Africa to one backing, what Obama Administration officials considered groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and the Turkish AK Party, now led by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, as a so-called “moderate” alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 as a Sunni Islamist religious, political and social movement, whose fundamental goal remains Islam’s global domination and the implementation of Sharia. Although the Muslim Brotherhood uses political instruments more than violence, its radical goals are no different from al-Qaeda and ISIS.
It has long been suspected that Obama, not only supports the Muslim Brotherhood, but that his administration is infiltrated by the Brotherhood, including Hillary Clinton’s long-serving assistant, Huma Abedin, who has enjoyed an intensely close relationship with the Islamist organization for decades.
Therein rests the motivation for the policies formulated and actions taken by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in Egypt, Libya and Syria, all of which led to the growth of radical Islam in North Africa and the Middle East.
The Tunisian revolution in December 2010 and the rise of the Islamist Ennahda Movement in that country was quickly followed by the Cairo protests that began on January 25, 2011 under the direction of Egypt’s largest opposition group, the Muslim Brotherhood. The protests and associated violence led to the resignation on February 11, 2011 of long-time US ally, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. There are now a number of reports indicating the US cooperated with and attempted to sustain the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, including an alleged Brotherhood agent inside the US Embassy in Cairo.
Violent regime change in support of radical Islam began in earnest on February 15, 2011, when a rebellion broke out in Benghazi, Libya against the authoritarian regime of Muammar Qaddafi. Toppling Qaddafi had long been a goal of Islamic militant groups, including al-Qaeda and the local Libyan al-Qaeda affiliate, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), a key player in the anti-Qaddafi rebellion.
Within a few weeks of the outbreak of fighting in eastern Libya, Obama has signed a secret order authorizing a covert CIA operation to support Islamist rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi. Both inside and outside the Obama administration, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was among the most vocal early proponents of using U.S. military force to unseat Qaddafi. Seven months and thousands of more unnecessary deaths later, in October 2011, after an extended military campaign with sustained Western support, Islamist rebel forces conquered the country and shot Qaddafi dead. Many will recall Hillary Clinton, on October 20, 2011, cackling to a TV news reporter over the death of Qaddafi: “We came, we saw, he died.”
Since then, Libya has been in a constant state of chaos, with factional infighting, no uniting leader and has provided a haven for ISIS and other Islamic terrorists; culminating in the September 11, 2012 attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi and the death of four Americans.
In released, but redacted emails, Hillary Clinton expressed interest in arming Libyan opposition groups using private security contractors. In an April 8, 2011 email to her then-deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, Clinton wrote: “FYI. The idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should be considered.” It now appears probable that, in 2011, at Clinton’s urging, Obama secretly approved the arming of rebels in Libya and, later Syria by the same method, via a third party, likely Qatar, who had brokered the sale of more than $100 million in crude oil from rebel-held areas.
The rise of ISIS can be directly linked to the power vacuum left after the premature withdrawal of US forces from Iraq in December 2011 and fueled by American abdication of a foreign policy in Syria, where we sub-contracted our interests to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey. Not surprisingly, those countries pursued their own interests; the Saudis supporting radical Islamic Salafists, while the Turks and Qataris backed the Muslim Brotherhood.
By the summer of 2012, Turkey, together with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, had constructed a fully operational secret command and control center to facilitate communications and the movement of weapons to the Syrian rebel groups. The center in Adana, a city in southern Turkey about 100 km (60 miles) from the Syrian border, was set up after Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah al-Saud visited Turkey and requested it. Adana is home to Incirlik, a large Turkish/U.S. air force base which Washington has used in the past for reconnaissance and military logistics operations. Adana is in close proximity to the Turkish port of Iskenderun, a major transit point for arms destined for the Syrian rebels.
It is important to note that Obama’s friend, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is a Sunni Islamist, a vehement opponent of Syrian President Bashar al Assad and a fervent supporter of the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood.
Assad has placed emphasis on controlling northwest Syria, which safeguards his Shia-Alawite home region and his base of support, as well as securing the strategically critical coastal area containing the Latakia airbase used by Russian forces and the important port of Tartus – a situation that has largely left eastern Syria along the Iraq border open for Islamist exploitation.
A Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report sent to Hillary Clinton and other administration officials in August 2012 and declassified in May 2015, stated that “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI (Al- Qaeda in Iraq, which became ISIS) are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” and being supported by “the West, Gulf countries and Turkey.”
The report goes into detail about how the West was actively helping those opposition groups control the eastern border of Syria near the Iraqi province of Anbar and the strategic city of Mosul, both of which eventually came under control of ISIS.
The stupidity of Obama’s ideological and Muslim Brotherhood-centric policy in dealing with radical Islam is only exceeded by the galactic incompetence in which it was carried out, and has left us living in a more dangerous world.

First, Dr. William Mount. I have heard numerous “reports” and watched several videos that people have sent me over the last two years all issued by this man and absolutely not one of his prognostications bore fruit.
When one considers “the fruits” one must consider whether there are any. And next, what has occurred by omission— people being scared for nothing, people being hopeful for nothing, and most importantly, people not thinking for themselves and acting in their own best interests while relying on the “intel” being fed to them by Dr. William Mount.
Second, Le Neu Republique, or is it La Neu Republique—-? “La”, I believe upon reconsideration. The French have the habit of considering all things that are changeable and secretive, like governments, to be of the feminine gender. Who knows? Perhaps they are right.
Anyway, the Truth of the matter is that the French Government allowed itself to be used as an accomplice by the British Government back at the end of the Second World War. Both countries owed a lot of money to the Americans so they were both hot to find a way to defraud us. And they did.
The French charted both the UN Corporation and the International Monetary Fund doing business as the IMF (which is an agency of the United Nations) well before the United Nations Charter was ever signed.
Think about that. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
The UNITED STATES, Inc. which sponsored all the STATE OF OHIO and STATE OF OREGON and STATE OF WHATEVER ELSE franchises and which has been busily providing us with “governmental services” since 1944 — and providing us with a lot of services we never ordered and not providing services we did order and basically overcharging us for everything possible— is owned and operated by the IMF which is in turn owned and operated by the UN Corp which is owned and operated by the World Bank which is owned and operated by Jacob Rothschild who is the pimp for the British Crown Conglomerate.
The French supplied the corporate charters to hide the British aim, and the British provided the mechanisms and the man-power to carry out the fraud scheme against the Americans— the whole fraud of registering our births and creating these bogus corporate entities and operating them in our names and buying and trading them on the stock markets of the world is pure British crime at its best—- press-ganging, inland piracy, semantic decent, reverse trust fraud, identity theft, credit theft— all brought to you by people you thought were your friend and Allies, people you trusted to run the court system for you.
The problem for the French is that because they chartered these infamous corporations, they are responsible for their lawful operation and functioning.
Rather than own up to their responsibility and admitting their guile and culpability, the French Government is attempting to continue to usurp our lawful government and keep all this crap under the rug, by booting up another French “governmental services corporation” and (falsely) advertising it as the “New Republic”.
The advantage of the “New Republic” from their standpoint is that if we are stupid enough to go for it, they can then use it as a means to force us to pay off the odious debts owed by the first French corporation known as the UNITED STATES, Inc. And, they think nobody will be any the wiser.
The Brits are eagerly backing this plan, too, because God-forbid that their seedy underbelly and sanctimonious fraud be exposed to the rest of the world. We might then all have the good sense to throw off centuries of British Crown domination and fraud and criminality—especially their dominance of the banking and legal industry, the criminal manipulation of which is their main source of income.
We have been snookered senseless by our “Allies”, and that is the sad fact of it. General Dunford has perhaps been drawn into the net or perhaps thought he had no choice but to accept the newest con as a remedy for the old con. I certainly cannot and will not answer for him, nor even presume that he has actually agreed to play a part in this scheme. There seems to be no credible confirmation one way or another from him.
Somehow, it never occurs to crooks caught red-handed up to their shoulders in the cookie jar that they need to admit their crime. They need to come forward and just say— we were bombed out after the Second World War, our land ravaged, our cities in ruins. We had to borrow from the Americans and we did— but we did it in a dishonest way, because otherwise the debt involved would have crushed us and reduced our people to generations of misery. So that’s what we did and why we did it. Can we be forgiven?
I think the answer is— yes, but only if you straighten up your act, stop doing this crazy stuff, and finally deal with the bankers and lawyers who have been allowed –and indeed, instructed— to promote all this criminality and fraud.
Otherwise, it is inevitable that the people in all these countries throughout Europe and throughout the world are going to wake up and start tearing down banks brick by brick and gibbeting lawyers on street corners.
We have finally grown up enough to understand that these are not political, ethnic, nor religious issues. These are issues of self-interested crime being promoted by members of society in positions of trust, both public and private.
So, thumbs down on the French Neu Republique. What we need is our old American Republic fully restored with no further questions or obligations.
Third, about NESARA…. I have covered this repeatedly, but people don’t want to hear it. My Mother was intimately involved in the Farm Union Cases that gave rise to the original NESARA legislation. It was offered as remedy by a lone Congressman and it was laughed out of the Beltway.
Why, the members of Congress asked, should we pay our honest debts to the American People? We can just seek bankruptcy protection instead—- and that’s what they did.
There’s no question that they have acted as criminals, that they and the banks are guilty of fraud, extortion, personage, unlawful conversion—absolutely none. It has already been decided long ago by the Supreme Court.
But here is a little history lesson people need to take to heart— the Supreme Court can’t force the Congress to take any positive action. It can only force the Congress to stop doing a specific wrong thing. And the Congress, not the Supreme Court, holds the purse strings.
So the Supreme Court can find in your favor all day long, but if the United States of America, Inc., is bankrupt and the dodgy characters who made off with your assets are not willing to make things right using other funds, the old adage about “blood from a turnip” applies.
Of course, the rats should never have been allowed any bankruptcy protection in the first place. The crimes they committed amount to malicious fraud and should have pierced the “corporate veil” like a knife and ended the bankruptcy proceedings instantly, but instead, the Supreme Court “sealed” the cases and has sat on the whole stinking pile of manure ever since.
The members of “Congress” and Billy Boy Clinton sat there in their posh offices laughing at the defrauded farmers and the millions upon millions of other honest hard-working American families they snookered— they still do. They think that’s their job and their privilege, since we were so stupid as to vote for them and hand them our proxy as “representatives” instead of fiduciary deputies.
They can do what they like with no accountability at all— until the American People and the American Armed Forces finally wake to hell up.
But back to NESARA….. the only way that NESARA will ever be passed is if the halls of Washington, DC, are scrubbed clean with bleach and a completely new Congress composed of lawfully elected and fully accountable fiduciary deputies votes for it.
There is no way that the currently composed Congress will or even can pass the NESARA legislation.
I hear you all scratching your heads and asking— “Wait a minute, Anna, you just said that the members of Congress are free to do whatever they like, including selling us down the drain? What do you mean now that they “can’t” pass NESARA?”
They can’t pass NESARA because that would cost the already insolvent UNITED STATES, Inc., even more than it owes already. The only way they can pay their secondary creditors is by pretending that their Priority Creditors (you and I) either don’t exist or voluntarily “abandoned” our claims against them, plus, the members of Congress took their Oath to the United States—-not the united States of America.
Look up the “Oath of Office” the members of Congress have taken. They didn’t pledge their allegiance to you, their “presumed” constituents, nor to this country, either. They pledged it to the IMF doing business as the “UNITED STATES”.
That’s why they can’t do anything like pass NESARA, even if they wanted to.
Real remedy requires a lot more than “hope and spin and wishful thinking”. It requires insight and critical thought and meaningful action from all of you. Just letting the members of “Congress” and the “United Nations” and the “Joint Chiefs” and everyone on your email list know these facts might be the single best thing you could ever do.

America’s Gestapo: The FBI’s Reign of Terror
By John W. Whitehead
“We want no Gestapo or secret police. The FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail. J. Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him.”—President Harry S. Truman
“Don’t Be a Puppet” is the message the FBI is sending young Americans.
June 14, 2016 “Information Clearing House” – “Rutherford Institute” – As part of the government’s so-called ongoing war on terror, the nation’s de facto secret police force is now recruiting students and teachers to spy on each other and report anyone who appears to have the potential to be “anti-government” or “extremist.”
Using the terms “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably, the government continues to add to its growing list of characteristics that could distinguish an individual as a potential domestic terrorist.
For instance, you might be a domestic terrorist in the eyes of the FBI (and its network of snitches) if you:
- express libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
- exhibit Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership)
- read survivalist literature, including apocalyptic fictional books
- show signs of self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
- fear an economic collapse
- buy gold and barter items
- subscribe to religious views concerning the book of Revelation
- voice fears about Big Brother or big government
- expound about constitutional rights and civil liberties
- believe in a New World Order conspiracy
Despite its well-publicized efforts to train students, teachers, police officers, hairdressers, store clerks, etc., into government eyes and ears, the FBI isn’t relying on a nation of snitches to carry out its domestic spying.
There’s no need.
The nation’s largest law enforcement agency rivals the NSA in resources, technology, intelligence, and power. Yet while the NSA has repeatedly come under fire for its domestic spying programs, the FBI has continued to operate its subversive and clearly unconstitutional programs with little significant oversight or push-back from the public, Congress or the courts. Just recently, for example, a secret court gave the agency the green light to quietly change its privacy rules for accessing NSA data on Americans’ international communications.
Indeed, as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the FBI has become the embodiment of how power, once acquired, can be easily corrupted and abused.
When and if a true history of the FBI is ever written, it will not only track the rise of the American police state but it will also chart the decline of freedom in America.
Owing largely to the influence and power of the FBI, the United States—once a nation that abided by the rule of law and held the government accountable for its actions—has steadily devolved into a police state where justice is one-sided, a corporate elite runs the show, representative government is a mockery, police are extensions of the military, surveillance is rampant, privacy is extinct, and the law is little more than a tool for the government to browbeat the people into compliance.
The FBI’s laundry list of crimes against the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation tactics, harassment and indoctrination, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property.
And that’s just based on what we know.
Whether the FBI is planting undercover agents in churches, synagogues and mosques; issuing fake emergency letters to gain access to Americans’ phone records; using intimidation tactics to silence Americans who are critical of the government; recruiting high school students to spy on and report fellow students who show signs of being future terrorists; or persuading impressionable individuals to plot acts of terror and then entrapping them, the overall impression of the nation’s secret police force is that of a well-dressed thug, flexing its muscles and doing the boss’ dirty work of ensuring compliance, keeping tabs on potential dissidents, and punishing those who dare to challenge the status quo.
The FBI was established in 1908 as a small task force assigned to deal with specific domestic crimes. Initially quite limited in its abilities to investigate so-called domestic crimes, the FBI has been transformed into a mammoth federal policing and surveillance agency. Unfortunately, whatever minimal restrictions kept the FBI’s surveillance activities within the bounds of the law all but disappeared in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. The USA Patriot Act gave the FBI and other intelligence agencies carte blanche authority in investigating Americans suspected of being anti-government.
As the FBI’s powers have grown, its abuses have mounted.
The FBI continues to monitor Americans engaged in lawful First Amendment activities.
COINTELPRO, the FBI program created to “disrupt, misdirect, discredit, and neutralize” groups and individuals the government considers politically objectionable, was aimed not so much at the criminal element but at those who challenged the status quo—namely, those expressing anti-government sentiments such as Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lennon. It continues to this day, albeit in other guises.
The FBI has become a master in the art of entrapment.
In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the FBI has not only targeted vulnerable individuals but has also lured them into fake terror plots while actually equipping them with the organization, money, weapons and motivation to carry out the plots—entrapment—and then jailing them for their so-called terrorist plotting. This is what the FBI characterizes as “forward leaning—preventative—prosecutions.”
FBI agents are among the nation’s most notorious lawbreakers.
In addition to creating certain crimes in order to then “solve” them, the FBI also gives certain informants permission to break the law, “including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies,” in exchange for their cooperation on other fronts. USA Today estimates that agents have authorized criminals to engage in as many as 15 crimes a day. Some of these informants are getting paid astronomical sums: one particularly unsavory fellow, later arrested for attempting to run over a police officer, was actually paid $85,000 for his help laying the trap for an entrapment scheme.
The FBI’s powers, expanded after 9/11, have given its agents carte blanche access to Americans’ most personal information.
The agency’s National Security Letters, one of the many illicit powers authorized by the USA Patriot Act, allows the FBI to secretly demand that banks, phone companies, and other businesses provide them with customer information and not disclose the demands. An internal audit of the agency found that the FBI practice of issuing tens of thousands of NSLs every year for sensitive information such as phone and financial records, often in non-emergency cases, is riddled with widespread violations.
The FBI’s spying capabilities are on a par with the NSA.
The FBI’s surveillance technology boasts an invasive collection of spy tools ranging from Stingray devices that can track the location of cell phones to Triggerfish devices which allow agents to eavesdrop on phone calls. In one case, the FBI actually managed to remotely reprogram a “suspect’s” wireless internet card so that it would send “real-time cell-site location data to Verizon, which forwarded the data to the FBI.”
The FBI’s hacking powers have gotten downright devious.
FBI agents not only have the ability to hack into any computer, anywhere in the world, but they can also control that computer and all its stored information, download its digital contents, switch its camera or microphone on or off and even control other computers in its network. Given the breadth of the agency’s powers, the showdown between Apple and the FBI over customer privacy appears to be more spectacle than substance.
James Comey, current director of the FBI, knows enough to say all the right things about the need to abide by the Constitution, all the while his agency routinely discards it. Comey argues that the government’s powers shouldn’t be limited, especially when it comes to carrying out surveillance on American citizens. Comey continues to lobby Congress and the White House to force technology companies such as Apple and Google to keep providing the government with backdoor access to Americans’ cell phones.
The FBI’s reach is more invasive than ever.
This is largely due to the agency’s nearly unlimited resources (its minimum budget alone in fiscal year 2015 was $8.3 billion), the government’s vast arsenal of technology, the interconnectedness of government intelligence agencies, and information sharing through fusion centers—data collecting intelligence agencies spread throughout the country that constantly monitor communications (including those of American citizens), everything from internet activity and web searches to text messages, phone calls and emails.
Today, the FBI employs more than 35,000 individuals and operates more than 56 field offices in major cities across the U.S., as well as 400 resident agencies in smaller towns, and more than 50 international offices. In addition to their “data campus,” which houses more than 96 million sets of fingerprints from across the United States and elsewhere, the FBI is also, according to The Washington Post, “building a vast repository controlled by people who work in a top-secret vault on the fourth floor of the J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building in Washington. This one stores the profiles of tens of thousands of Americans and legal residents who are not accused of any crime. What they have done is appear to be acting suspiciously to a town sheriff, a traffic cop or even a neighbor.”
If there’s one word to describe the FBI’s covert tactics, it’s creepy.
The agency’s biometric database has grown to massive proportions, the largest in the world, encompassing everything from fingerprints, palm, face and iris scans to DNA, and is being increasingly shared between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in an effort to target potential criminals long before they ever commit a crime.
This is what’s known as pre-crime.
If it were just about fighting the “bad guys,” that would be one thing. But as countless documents make clear, the FBI has no qualms about using its extensive powers in order to blackmail politicians, spy on celebrities and high-ranking government officials, and intimidate dissidents of all stripes.
It’s an old tactic, used effectively by former authoritarian regimes.
In fact, as historian Robert Gellately documents, the Nazi police state was repeatedly touted as a model for other nations to follow, so much so that Hoover actually sent one of his right-hand men, Edmund Patrick Coffey, to Berlin in January 1938 at the invitation of Germany’s secret police. As Gellately noted, “After five years of Hitler’s dictatorship, the Nazi police had won the FBI’s seal of approval.”
Indeed, so impressed was the FBI with the Nazi order that, as the New York Times revealed, in the decades after World War II, the FBI, along with other government agencies, aggressively recruited at least a thousand Nazis, including some of Hitler’s highest henchmen, brought them to America, hired them on as spies and informants, and then carried out a massive cover-up campaign to ensure that their true identities and ties to Hitler’s holocaust machine would remain unknown. Moreover, anyone who dared to blow the whistle on the FBI’s illicit Nazi ties found himself spied upon, intimidated, harassed and labeled a threat to national security.
So not only have American taxpayers been paying to keep ex-Nazis on the government payroll for decades but we’ve been subjected to the very same tactics used by the Third Reich: surveillance, militarized police, over-criminalization, and a government mindset that views itself as operating outside the bounds of the law.
This is how freedom falls, and tyrants come to power.
The similarities between the American police state and past totalitarian regimes such as Nazi Germany grow more pronounced with each passing day.
Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. These are the hallmarks of every authoritarian regime from the Roman Empire to modern-day America.
Yet it’s the secret police—tasked with silencing dissidents, ensuring compliance, and maintaining a climate of fear—who sound the death knell for freedom in every age.
Just imagine what John could accomplish if he would drop out of the Corporate Law of the Sea, and form a common Law Firm. John, give up your esquire status and the whole damn country will be buying your books.
