WHY I WROTE THE MASTER PLAN
By Al Duncan
“President Obama is the only president that has ventured to acquire Universal kingship by officiating a meeting of the United Nations highest body.”
I first learned about the New World Order in 1982. A friend had given me a book entitled The Fourth Reich of the Rich, by Des Griffin, in it was a chapter titled The Master Plan. The author(s) of this master plan spoke from an authoritative, matter-of-factly standpoint, often boasting of what they had done, what they were doing, and their plans to run the world. I knew their past and present claims were valid, because they were being fulfilled daily right before my eyes. And so, I had no doubts about their future claims of controlling the world.
These master planners are the shareholders of the central banks, of which control the currencies of each nation. They are also the policymakers of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund and are the owners or lead shareholders of every major corporation in the world. By controlling these international financial institutions, they controlled the world economy.
The United Nations is the vehicle that the master planners designed to gather all the nations under their authority. This viable Trojan horse has influenced even the most independent of nations to become member states. To better grasp the all-inclusive and supreme authority behind the United Nations, its stated aims include and facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights, civil rights, civil liberties, political freedoms, democracy, and the achievement of lasting world peace. These ten agencies supervise every facet of life on this planet; there is nothing left for chance.
The United Nations portrays a benevolent, wholesome, peaceable, grandfatherly type organization committed to protect the earth, its atmosphere, and especially the impoverished and the helpless. But upon a thorough examination, you encounter corruption, horrifying acts of violence and unmitigated authority and subjugating control.
Combine the knowledge of these organizations with an examination of the master planners’ writings and you are quickly convinced that they are helplessly intoxicated on power, supremacy, and the domination of everyone and everything on the planet. They possess diplomatic passports and an international clearance; their elite status, and high-powered lifestyle has placed them above-reproach, without restraints, and they are a law unto themselves.
Here is a quote from the most prominent master planner in the United States, a member of the family that actual donated the land for the construction of the United Nations headquarters in New York City: “Some even believe we are a part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I’m proud of it.” —David Rockefeller
Rockefeller is the lead shareholder of Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, the Federal Reserve Bank, just to name a few, and is the proud recipient of every cent you spend on fuel, with the exception of BP Oil and Shell. I have often said Rockefeller owns America and Rothschild owns Europe, each being tens of trillions of dollars strong. As recently as June 2012, Rothschild united with Rockefeller under a common group, as Rothschild Investment Trust and Rockefeller Financial Services became one.
Some writers have analyzed these master planners as psychotic, sociopathic authoritarians. Many have carefully scrutinizing their writings and observed their lifestyle and it is believed that they are so deeply inbred—for fear of contamination by the inferiority of non-blue blood, and commoners—that sadly, many of their births are diagnosed as medically insane.
The United Nations is the apparatus the master planners have established to run the world, and this is a taste of how they are pulling it off. The World Trade Organization (WTO) controls the manufacturing and costs of every product traded on the international market. The World Health Organization (WHO) governs the medical and pharmaceutical fields. The World Food Programme (WFP), along with United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are powerful humanitarian bargaining tools to control food and assistance to developing countries. The International Criminal Court (ICC) binds all nations of the world under one set of laws, with one international court and one international enforcer. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) manage the educational system, the sciences, and the structuring of societies around the globe. Agenda 21 was created to maintain a sustainable development throughout the world. Agenda 21 works in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which monitors and micro-manages every element on the planet, including human beings. And last, but surely not least, is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the military arm of the United Nations, with a force capable of maintaining a façade of peace throughout the world.
Since the inception of the United Nations, October 24, 1945, every nation, with the exception of the Vatican, has become a member state. Upon doing so, each nation surrendered its sovereign control over its country and its citizenry to the authority of the United Nations. It is through the United Nations that a New/One World Order has been established.
The United States has also relinquished its authority to the United Nations. After all, it is American tax dollars that paid for the construction of the United Nations building in New York City.
Moreover, on September 24, 2009, for the first time in the history of America, a United States president chaired the United Nations 15-member Security Council. The United Nations Security Counsel chairperson possesses the power to influence legislation and resolutions, make decisions, and set the agenda. Addressing the council, the president outlined his vision of a, “New World Order, in which the United States would participate fully.”
And yet, Section 9 of the United States Constitution states: “No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King or Prince, or foreign State.”
The United Nations is a foreign government. President Obama is the only president that has ventured to acquire Universal kingship by officiating a meeting of the United Nations highest body.
Another unconstitutional action performed by this president was to authorize airstrikes over Libya without Congressional approval. The president himself, who claimed during his presidential campaign to be an instructor of constitutional law, told the Boston Globe in December 2007: “The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.” And yet, that is exactly what he did.
In a Globe survey, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., then a senator, argued that a president would have “no authority under the Constitution to bomb Iranian nuclear sites without Congressional authorization because even limited strikes can unintentionally prompt all-out-war.”
The Constitution, in Article I, Section 8, explicitly state, “The Congress shall have Power To declare War.” There are exceptions for departing from this requirement, such as an imminent threat of attack on the United States, but these exceptions are clear, and well-defined.
Our Constitution entrusts Congress with the power to declare war. That power cannot be entrusted to an international committee that lacks political accountability to the American people. The decision to go to war is the most significant one a politician can make. The Framers constructed our system to make sure that the officials are responsible to the people whose lives are at stake and who are expected to pay the expenses.
And yet, in March 2012, the Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, told congress during an Armed Service Committee, SD 106, that in order to deploy the United States military he was obligated to seek a legal basis from NATO, a United Nations organization, for instructions and permission, and that he does not need congressional approval in order to do so. In fact, he made it explicitly clear that once instructions to deploy American military forces were obtained from NATO, he may or may not inform congress of those instructions.
While it is impossible to argue against facts, many will attempt to do so.
If congress possessed any semblance of authority or conserved any arm of power, they were obligated—by their oath to uphold the United States Constitution against enemies both foreign and domestic—to declare “treason” in each of these blatantly treasonous acts and have the perpetrators arrested and charged accordingly. Based upon the non-action regarding these events, it is my conclusion that the United States Constitution is invalid, or at the lease unenforceable. It is also my conclusion that the members of the House, the Senate, the Executive branch and the judicial branch have been rendered obsolete or, they are compliers with these acts of treason and are therefore co-conspirators.
Our government is being controlled by a foreign government. It is now clear and obvious that the United States of America has been conquered by a band of bankers and corporate heads and they have devised a One World Order with them at the helm.
It is also my conclusion that the only means of regaining our Republic is to follow the mandate given by the Framers: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their safety and happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government.
While I have clearly demonstrated that a takeover has been accomplished, I have yet to describe what these master planners have devised for the world and the people living in it once their takeover is affirmed. I will do so in succeeding articles.

I have said this before in numerous comments, and I fully understand the ramifications, but the entire United States of America has been attacked from within, and it’s Government has been taken over by traitors, so what else would a patriot demand other than the arrest and trial of these traitors, and in addition, the entire Group of international bankers should be hung up and burned alive. History has no equally barbarous killers that I have found. This action cannot be accomplished by the existing government, so, We The People must stand up and protect our Country. Where are the PEOPLE?????
ARE YOU AN AMERICAN?

By Dave Hodges
Bakersfield, CA resident, David Silva, was executed for being drunk in his own home. He was executed by the Kern County Sheriff’s Department. What happened to Silva was clearly an abuse of power but is representative of what the federal government has in store for all of America in which the people are the enemy of law enforcement and will be treated accordingly.
The Tenth Amendment provides for the division of power and law enforcement between the federal, state and local governments.
Unfortunately, The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is changing the face of local law enforcement.
DHS’ Original Mission
In the aftermath of 9/11, DHS was created to protect the “Homeland” from further terror attacks from foreign-born terrorists. DHS kept us safe at the airports by goosing granny. They also protected us from the trauma of natural disasters through the use of FEMA, with such stellar performances like the one in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. And of course, FEMA has been instrumental in creating a multitude of so-called FEMA Camps which they say are to house a sudden influx of illegal aliens. Newsflash, there are 30 million illegal aliens here, you might want to roll back the covers and keep the soup warm. Of course, the camps are not for the illegal’s, they are for the citizens of this country who are deemed to be a threat to the rollout of martial law. Meanwhile, the real terrorists, al-Qaeda are being funded by the CIA in places like Libya and Syria.
DHS’ Real Mission
Meanwhile, back in reality, DHS was only created to pretend to thwart a foreign terror threat. The real reason that DHS has been created is now becoming obvious to all. With the advent of the MIAC Report which listed gun owners, Second Amendment supporters, Ron Paul supporters, Libertarians, Constitutionalists, Veterans and Christians as “domestic terrorists.” This was the real reason why DHS was created.
Recently, DHS sponsored a self-study entitled, "Homeland Security and Intelligence: Next Steps in Evolving the Mission", in which DHS proclaims that they are no longer concerned with foreign-inspired terrorism. They are only going to focus on domestic terrorism, ostensibly, against the American people. Does the DHS purchase of 2.2 billion rounds of info, the acquisition of 2700 armored personnel carriers and the beta test of martial law in Boston last April begin to make any sense?
Obfuscation of DHS’ Original Charter
Incredibly, DHS says that other agencies can deal with what once was the omnipresent and all-encompassing threat of terrorism that was initially used to justify DHS’s creation, powers and huge budget. The report went on to say that
There are enough agencies pursuing the terrorist adversary to allow DHS to build a new analytic foundation that emphasizes data, analytic questions, and customer groups that are not the focus for other agencies…
Subsequently, the real purpose behind the creation of this domestic East German Stasi secret police was to monitor and control the American population. Unfortunately, DHS has shared its high-tech toys with most local police departments and Sheriffs Departments and has, as a result, co-opted their local function. In other words, the federalization of local police forces, in violation of the 10th Amendment, is well underway. The early returns on this process are in and the results are extremely ugly.
The DHS trains police that Christians and Libertarians want to kill them as do the returning veterans. The DHS is training local law enforcement that the people are their enemy. DHS has even gone so far to use pregnant women, old people and children as cutout targets for their drills. In short, they are being trained to attack America. Local law enforcement are being trained to use deadly force, even when its use is not warranted, against average Americans.
Salt Lake City: The Federalization of Our Police
Under the creation of the Unified Police Department (UPD) in Salt Lake City, Utah local jurisdictions and municipalities which were previously controlled by the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office were reallocated to UPD. The UPD is a regional police force. They answer to no mayor, no city council and no county commissioners. The UPD is Salt Lake City’s new police department and serves as the model for the program which is being implemented in other police departments across the nation.
It is clear that the police departments are being trained as the local enforcers of the coming martial law and they also being trained to use horrific brutality.
The Murder of David Silva by the Kern County Sheriff’s Department
There is a new gang in Bakersfield, CA. No, it is not the Bloods, the Crips nor is it the Zetas. The new gang in town is the Bakersfield Sheriff’s Department, as they did their best imitation last week as eight Deputies beat an unarmed David Silva to death while he was lying prone on the ground. Silva’s crime was that he was drunk in his own home.
Six sheriff’s deputies and the sergeant involved in last week’s incident were placed on paid administrative leave, primarily for their own safety due to several email threats which have been sent to the department.
All of the non-cop witnesses are saying that Silva didn’t resist and the cops just murdered him. That, and the fact the cops confiscated the better videos from local citizens.
Here is what the witnesses are saying about the murder of innocent civilian, David Silva.
Film Cops and Get Life In Prison
Michael Allison, recorded police officers on duty in his front yard inspecting vehicles he was repairing. The police cited Allison for failing to properly register his vehicles, and so he requested an ordinance review hearing. Allison now faces five felony counts, with each count carrying a penalty for 15 years in prison. For videotaping police and a court proceeding, Allison faces an unbelievable total of 75 years, or the rest of his life in prison under Illinois new eavesdropping statutes.
Any Reason to Practice DHS Style Police Brutality
Look at the out-of-control stampede herd of thugs belonging to the NYPD at the 135th Street subway station when Clive Utter allegedly jumped the turnstile. Utter was slammed into the wall, dropped onto the floor and cuffed by a mob of at least 25 officers.
A bystander exercising his constitutionally protected right to film this act of police brutality was forced out to the street and was manhandled in the process. Utter was charged with resisting arrest, criminal trespass, theft of service, and criminal possession of a controlled substance. Can you imagine what would have happened to him if he pick-pocketed a wallet or snatched a purse? Utter, like Silva, would likely be in the morgue.
What’s Next? Rendition Centers for Jaywalkers?
America, we are living in unparalleled times. With the portion of the country awaiting a barrage of false flag attacks and the rollout of martial law, to be followed by war with Russia over Syria and Iran, these are uneasy times. If we had any hope that our police would defend the people from federal tyranny in the coming days and months, think again. The people are almost out of options, and options are something I will discuss in the next article.

Two disturbing developments have occurred in the last couple of days that have gone relatively unnoticed compared to the recent IRS, AP, and Benghazi scandals.
First, the senate is debating anexpansion of the already broad powers of the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) so the U.S. can essentially engage any area in the world in the war on terror, including America. Which brings us to the second development: the Pentagon has recently granted itself police powers on American soil.
Assistant Secretary of Defense Michael Sheehan told Congress yesterday that the AUMF authorized the US military to operate on a worldwide battlefield from Boston to Pakistan. Sheehan emphasized that the Administration is authorized to put boots on the ground wherever the enemy chooses to base themselves, essentially ignoring the declaration of war clause in the US Constitution.
Senator Angus King said this interpretation of the AUMF is a "nullity" to the Constitution because it ignores Congress' role to declare war. King called it the "most astoundingly disturbing hearing" he's been to in the Senate.
Even ultra-hawk John McCain agreed that the AUMF has gone way beyond its authority.
"This authority … has grown way out of proportion and is no longer applicable to the conditions that prevailed, that motivated the United States Congress to pass the authorization for the use of military force that we did in 2001," McCain said.
Glenn Greenwald wrote an excellent piece describing how this hearing reveals the not-so-secret plan to make the war on terror a permanent fixture in Western society.
It is hard to resist the conclusion that this war has no purpose other than its own eternal perpetuation. This war is not a means to any end but rather is the end in itself. Not only is it the end itself, but it is also its own fuel: it is precisely this endless war – justified in the name of stopping the threat of terrorism – that is the single greatest cause of that threat.
A self-perpetuating permanent war against a shadowy undefinable enemy appears to be the future of American foreign policy. How convenient for the war machine and tyrants who claim surveillance is safety.
But perhaps most disturbing of all of this is the military's authority to police American streets as if it was in civil war. For all those still in denial that America is a militarized police state, this should be the ultimate cure to your delusion.
Jeff Morey of AlterNet writes:
By making a few subtle changes to a regulation in the U.S. Code titled “Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies” the military has quietly granted itself the ability to police the streets without obtaining prior local or state consent, upending a precedent that has been in place for more than two centuries.
The most objectionable aspect of the regulatory change is the inclusion of vague language that permits military intervention in the event of “civil disturbances.” According to the rule: “Federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances.”
A law from 1878 called the Posse Comitatus Act was put in place to prevent the Department of Defense from interfering with local law enforcement. But now, the DoD claims they've had this authority for over 100 years.
"The authorization has been around over 100 years; it’s not a new authority. It’s been there but it hasn’t been exercised. This is a carryover of domestic policy," said an unnamed defense official who also emphasized that all soldiers take an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies "foreign and domestic" indicating that citizens are a threat to the Constitution.
Yet, the Constitution is a document that polices the government, not the people. In other words, the only people who can be "enemies" of the Constitution are those who took an oath to defend it. Therefore, only government officials can be an enemy the Constitution.
This follows a recent West Point study that sought to define the American people as "domestic enemies" in order to justify soldiers breaking their oath to corral pesky citizens.
The West Point Terrorism Center wrote that "conspiracy theorists" who worry that local law enforcement will be steadily replaced by federally-controlled law enforcement could potentially be a domestic enemy:
Some groups are driven by a strong conviction that the American political system and its proxies were hijacked by external forces interested in promoting a “New World Order,” (NWO) in which the United States will be embedded in the UN or another version of global government. The NWO will be advanced, they believe, via steady transition of powers from local to federal law-enforcement agencies, i.e., the transformation of local police and law-enforcement agencies into a federally controlled “National Police” agency that will in turn merge with a “Multi-National Peace Keeping Force.” The latter deployment on US soil will be justified via a domestic campaign implemented by interested parties that will emphasize American society’s deficiencies and US government incompetency.
So, as the US military claims to have the authority to be a "National Police" force, researchers who claim there is an agenda to do just that are now labeled as domestic terrorists?
Does this make any sense? Will oath takers see through these ridiculous interpretations and engage the real domestic enemy to the Constitution? Or will they just follow orders when the time comes to crack down on Americans?

Whoever authored this article must have testicles the size of planets!
LORD GOD! IF ONLY IT WERE TRUE.
No doubt you will have read or heard about the U.S.A. being a corporation that usurped the Constitution many years ago. In fact you may have read about it on my two sites, but ! Considering the method of establishing a countries freedom or enslavement to another power by an act of war, all America needs is for our existing military to get off their ass and re-establish our organic Constitution as the real and only rule of law by conquest of the existing powers that be. Namely, the international banking cartel, and it’s various corporations. Then, hold a military tribunal and hang the existing tyrants. Perhaps they are too afraid of the bankers, but my guess is the People would rise up and protect them forever. They would become a new level of hero’s. The person who wrote the article above is no dummy, and what he/she outlined is entirely possible, if our military had the same amount of guts as the writer. Why not forward the article to a few generals and see. Every military man wants to be a hero.

In Article II, Section 4, of the U.S. Constitution states, “The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
The U.S. House of Representatives has the power to commence impeachment proceedings. If the House adopts an impeachment resolution, the U.S. Senate conducts a trial and determines whether to convict or acquit. If an official is convicted, he or she is removed from the position and may be barred from holding office again. The official may also face criminalprosecution.
Obama Is Ineligible to Hold the Office of the Presidency
Investigators for an Arizona sheriff’s volunteer posse, under the command of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, previously declared that President Barack Obama‘s birth certificate is definitely fraudulent. In short, Obama should never have been permitted to run for the highest office in the land.
Regardless if Obama’s conduct is warrants impeachment and conviction, he should never have been allowed to run for the presidency and the allegations against him should be a moot point with regard to his potential impeachment.
Crimes Against Humanity
Only two American presidents have been impeached by the House of Representatives and they were Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. The Senate failed to convict both presidents. A third President, Richard Nixon, resigned over the Watergate scandal before the House of Representatives had voted on his impeachment.
If Clinton was subsequently impeached by the House for lying about his affair with Monica Lewinsky. However, the Lewinsky affair was a smokescreen as Obama committed war crimes through his bombing of Afghanistan and Iraq.
In the following video, Ron Paul, in 1998, made the case for impeaching Bill Clinton for gross violations of the Constitution and committing war crimes by bombing Iraq without congressional approval. Ralph Nader weighs in with a stunning indictment of Obama’s criminality.
Obama’s reckless and criminal actions have led to the slaughter of countless numbers of civilians in Afghanistan.
Despite claims to the contrary which stated that the Obama commanded forces which only deployed U.S. drones exclusively against known senior leaders of al Qaeda and their allies, the Obama administration has targeted and killed hundreds of suspected lower-level Afghan, Pakistani and unidentified “other” militants in scores of strikes in Pakistan’s according to classified U.S. intelligence reports show.
According to McClatchy’s review of drone strikes and found that theObama administration, in 43 of 95 studied drone strikes, hit groups other than al Qaeda.
Obama has not only brought discredit to the reputation of the United States, Obama has proven himself to be a war criminal and should not only be impeached, but should be brought to justice by an international tribunal along with fellow war criminal George W. Bush.
Obama has illegally participated in the overthrow of the sovereign government of Libya without a declaration of war from Congress. In the process Libyan “rebels” toppled Gadaffi. We now know that in the process of arming the rebels, Obama was actually arming al-Qaeda. And history is repeating itself in Syria as Obama, again, is arming al-Qaeda in an attempt to topple Assad of Syria.
If we do indeed hold al-Qaeda responsible for 9/11, as a government, isn’t the arming of al-Qaeda an act of treason because he is overtly providing aid and comfort to the enemy? President Obama is guilty of treason which is a high crime under the Constitution.
The Murder of Chris Stevens
Obama was warned in advance of the coming attack in which Stevens begged for more protection and his impassioned pleas were denied by Clinton. Clinton is unquestionably dirty in the death of Ambassador Stevens. However, the buck stops with Obama. He likely gave the stand down order, but he certainly must take responsibility for Clinton’s multiple refusals to protect an Ambassador.
As Stevens was begging for help after the attack had begun, AFRICOM Commander, General Hamm, had activated a special forces team within minutes of learning that the embassy, which was really a CIA safe house, was under attack. On the orders of the White House, Hamm was arrested and relieved of command and the rescue mission was cancelled.
We now know from the Hicks testimony, that there were weaponized drones flying overhead which could have stopped the attack on the compound. This means that there were three separate ways that Stevens could have been saved and Obama’s Murder Inc. blocked all potential rescue attempts
Obama later claimed that there was not time to launch a rescue mission. This is a blatant lie because if a drone can reach the scene and video the events, fighter planes could also have reached the scene and intervened and then this could have been followed up by a rapid deployment force trained in rescue.
Execution of American Citizens Without Due Process of Law
Since 2009, Obama’s minions, through aerial assaults also have killed three U.S. citizens as well as countless of innocent civilians in both Pakistan and Afghanistan. Obama’s actions begs the question as to whether the president has the right to order the death of Americans without due process of law. Attorney General, Eric Holder, has stated that does but would not do so. The intent behind Holder’s proclamation is self-evident.
One of those controversial and well publicized drone attacks involved the killing of Anwar al-Awalki. He was an American citizen and, at the same time, a radical Muslim cleric who had relocated his family to Yemen. He was rumored to be involved in repeated attempts to attack the U.S., including the Christmas day underwear bomber plot in 2009 that would have blown up a passenger jet over Detroit. The murder of Anwar al-Awalki was committed without any due process of law.
Also killed as the result of a drone attack was American citizen, Samir Khan. He was the editor of “Inspire,” an alleged al Qaeda ‘s online magazine. Kahn was never accused of participating in, or being involved with the planning of any terrorist activity. And since when has it been a criminal offense to be involved in al Qaeda, since we used their assets to attack Libya and have involved members of this organization in trying overthrow Syria’s Assad.
Two weeks later, after the death of his father, in a separate drone attack, al-Awalki’s 16-year-old son, who was born in Denver was also murdered by a drone. If these three individuals were involved in terrorist activity, then they should have been arrested and tried for their crimes. Instead, our communist-in-chief, decides on his own authority to murder these three Americans without any due process of law.
Obama’s actions in these three cases brings to a total of four murders that we know that Obama had carried out at his behest. In a Republic, it is unacceptable to continue to allow such a murderous despot continue to run this country.
I maintain that if Obama is only guilty of one of the aforementioned allegations, he should be impeached, convicted and immediately removed from office. He, in fact, is guilty of all charges set forth here. The fate of the Republic hinges on Obama’s impeachment and conviction.
It is highly probable that Obama is directly responsible for the murder of Chris Stevens, yet nobody in Congress has the intestinal fortitude to thoroughly investigate. In fact, John McCain has already said that he will not back impeachment against Obama. The Republicans will only push so far because they do not want their own skeletons to be exposed. Case in point has to do with the Fast and Furious that Obama got caught in terms of running guns into Mexico so they could blame the Second Amendment. Republican Issa was hot on Holder’s trail until he found that Fast and Furious was originated under George W. Bush and that was the end of the investigation. We cannot let the Benghazi scandal to suffer the same fate as Fast and Furious.
This is most likely a case of first degree murder. At minimum, Obama is obviously guilty of gross misconduct, malfeasance and criminally negligent homicide. Not only should Obama be impeached and convicted, he should criminally convicted and sentenced to prison.

For a couple of weeks now I have been struggling to write this article. Usually the ideas just flow from my fingertips onto the screen…not this time. It is not that I don't know what to say, it is that I don't know if people are ready to hear it. I think I have said all that can be said about our system of government, how it was supposed to work, and about the nature of our rights. If people haven't understood by now, they just aren't going to. But I have never really sat down and written about the reason I believe our country is in such sad shape, the why of it all if you may. Well this is why I think America is in such sad shape right now.
In 1989 Justice William Brennan offered the following ruling, "If there is a bedrock principle of the First Amendment, it is that the government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea itself offensive or disagreeable." I know that what I am about to say may offend some, while turning others away. I don't care, I feel that what I am about to say NEEDS to be said. In fact, I think it is long overdue that I do say it. So steel yourself for Neal's thoughts on why America is so screwed up.
To begin we must go back in time a bit. Normally I would be taking us back to the mid 1770's for a discussion of the period when our system of government was established. Not this time. This time I am going back much further, to when the early settlers came to this continent, and the reason they came. Unlike the immigrants to this country today, who seek only the benefits this country has to offer them, the first people to settle this great nation came here for one purpose only, to seek religious freedom.
In 1620 the first settlers to Plymouth Colony drafted the Mayflower Compact, the first governing document written in America. It begins by saying, "IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith…"
Like it or not, that is why they came, for the Glory of God and the advancement of the Christian Faith. Not for riches or the chance to simply start anew in some unsettled territory. They came here to establish religious communities that would live their lives according to the principles contained in the Bible.
Years later the Massachusetts Bay Colony Records would state, "To the end the body of commons may be preserved of honest and good men it was ordered and agreed that, for the time to come, no man shall be admitted to the freedom of this body politic, but such as are members of the churches within the limits of the same."
Many years later, in a 1780 letter to Elbridge Gerry, Samuel Adams would write, "If men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honor of the Supreme Being and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent foundation."
Fast forward two centuries and look where we are today. Sure we still have churches but the members are not of the same caliber and quality of those who came here in our nation's earliest years. I know that may upset you, especially if you are a devout churchgoer. If it does, let me ask you a question. Do you not believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and that it contains the principles upon which you should adhere to in your lives? Then how can you, in clear conscience, support any candidate, or political party, which espouses ideas that are contrary to what are found in the Bible? Yet time and time again I see Americans, who claim to be Christian, voting for candidates who run on platforms that go against the teachings found in the Bible.
This country was founded by, honest hard working, men and women who asked nothing of government other than the chance to live their lives in freedom from unnecessary burdens, and the right to live their lives free to worship as they pleased. And for awhile it worked as our country grew and prospered. Sure there were hiccups along the way, but for the most part we were a nation of God-fearing people and in return we received God's blessings upon us.
Look where we are today, a nation whose immigrants come here to find jobs, or to establish religious conclaves that are in opposition to the Christian heritage that founded this nation. We have allowed a small, but vocal minority to restrict our ability to freely worship. In fact, Church is something many do every week, but the religious teachings of the Bible are not the founding, and guiding, principles upon which people live their lives. Sure, there are exceptions to this, but they are not in the majority.
Let me ask you, why is it that our children cannot pray in school? The First Amendment states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech…" If Congress cannot pass a law which prohibits the free exercise of religion, why then cannot our children pray in school?
Ah, you say the Supreme Court has said it violates the wall of separation between church and state. Thomas Jefferson did not trust the Supreme Court, not at all. In fact, of them he said, "To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy."
Did you know that former Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black once said that, "Our Constitution was not written in the sands to be washed away by each wave of new judges blowing by each successive political wind."
There is something that has always bothered me about the Supreme Court. Political pundits often muse over the thought that should a number of Justices retire in the same year, it would give a sitting president a chance to alter the political makeup of the court. If these judges rule on the basis of law only, why should it matter in their selection which political party controls the White House? All this talk of the justices possibly overturning Roe v Wade, for instance, if the court ruled in constitutional for a woman to obtain an abortion, then how can succeeding court overturn that ruling? Which ruling then would be based upon law, and which upon the common sentiments of the people?
With that thought in mind, let me present you with two Supreme Court rulings from very early on in our nation's existence. The first was in 1844, in the case of Vidal v. Girard's Executors. The Court ruled, " Why may not the Bible and especially the New Testament be read and taught as a divine revelation in school? Where else can the purest principles of morality be learned so clearly or so perfectly as from the New Testament?"
The second comes from the Courts ruling on the case of Church of the Holy Trinity vs. U.S., "Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian…this is a Christian nation."
Are we, or have we become something else? Or are we as Christ spoke of in Matthew 15:8-9, "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."
In Luke, Chapter 6, Christ asks, "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" This country was founded by God-fearing men, our system of government was built by men who wanted to ensure that we would retain the right to freely worship. In a speech given at the Virginia Ratifying Convention, Patrick Henry declared, "Show me that age and country where the rights and the liberties of the people were placed on the sole chance of their rulers being good men, without a consequence loss of liberty?"
What was it Sam Adams said, "If men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honour of the Supreme Being and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent foundation."
Adams also said, "[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt." It falls upon us to know the nature and character of the people we choose to hold the highest seats of power in this country. In that way they are akin to a mirror which reflects the overall state of our union. If we are corrupt, they will reflect that in their choice of laws to pass and respect for our rights. It's that simple.
If we want to fix our government, to return it to the purpose for which it was intended, we must first get our own homes in order. In Matthew 7, Christ said, "Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye."
In a speech before the Virginia Ratifying Convention, James Madison asked, "Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks — no form of government can render us secure. To suppose liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea. If there be sufficient virtue and intelligence in the community, it will be exercised in the selection of these men. So that we do not depend on their virtue, or put confidence in our rulers, but in the people who are to choose them."
George Washington once said, "The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained."
Furthermore, Thomas Jefferson, in A Summary View of the Rights of British America, stated, "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure if we have removed their only firm basis: a conviction in the minds of men that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."
Are we witnessing God's justice? Are His blessings being withheld from us because we have forsaken His eternal laws? I can't answer that question with 100% certainty, but if I were a betting man, I would say the answer is yes.
So, if we want to restore America to her former glory, we must first start with ourselves.
And this is why I have struggled with this, because I know many of you want a quick fix, something you can do, and be done with. You don't want to hear that YOU must do some work, or burden a share of the responsibility for what is wrong with this country. Nonetheless, here it is. Now it's up to you to do something about it.

THE WAY OF THE FORMER ROMAN EMPIRE IS THE WAY OF THE UNITED STATES
The United States could correctly be likened to a huge glacier that has – through the years of its being – run a broad and seemingly non interruptible course through the world panorama, a course that emphasized its power and magnificence and illumined a connected series of divinely enhanced events, actions and developments throughout its diachronic existence. Unfortunately there has also been concomitantly a broad and morality dissipating U.S. national progression that has extraordinarily eroded its base and shorn from it the last steadying vestiges of the anchoring social and spiritual appendages that brought it into being and helped greatly to steady the journey and to stabilize the course of the whole of the mass.
The United States now rests on the precipice of last hope, overlooking a sheer chasm of despair, and struggles frantically to hang on to the last vestiges of promise as it struggles against a nation of a collectively polluted morality and clings to a now mostly vanished – and neigh onto impossible to recover – given the apostasy that is upon it – promise of its former glory and greatness. With a will born of desperation the people and their political leaders cling to a grudging hold on the nation’s former glory. Like that glacier previously mentioned this nation is slipping from that last desperate grip and is poised for a final slide into the boiling brine that will forever dissolve its greatness and dissipate into nothingness the residuals of its former glory and magnificence.
It will be an ignoble end to a greatly noble dream. As with Jericho, God has set into motion the cadence of that final march around the borders of this nation that will precipitate the collapse and eternal extinction of what was arguably the greatest nation to ever exist on this earth. The nation runs wobbly on, but its continuance is mostly fueled by the illustriousness of its previous existence and glory, in other words an inertia born of God’s divinely and blessedly bestowed gift of magnificence and prominence.
SECULAR HUMANISM – A BLUEPRINT FOR DISASTER
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. Proverbs 13:4
For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living. 2 Thessalonians 3:11-12
Rise up, you women who are at ease, hear my voice; you complacent daughters, give ear to my speech. In little more than a year you will shudder, you complacent women; for the grape harvest fails, the fruit harvest will not come. Tremble, you women who are at ease, shudder, you complacent ones; strip, and make yourselves bare, and tie sackcloth around your waist. Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine, for the soil of my people growing up in thorns and briers, yes, for all the joyous houses in the exultant city… Isaiah 32:9-20
Upon close inspection intelligent thinking people ought to be able to discern the source of the liberal/progressive ideology, it is an ideology spawned by the demonic realm under the auspices of that dragon of old Satan, and it has been diligently pursued by our exceedingly ignorant politicians as a birthright and as a cradle to grave doctrine emphasizing a person's supposed innate capacity for self-realization. This though none can exist or prosper without the staying hand of God…None!
Man was created in the image of God. God hates sloth and feigned whining helplessness; He has equipped mankind with the tools to make His world one of worth and great dignity. Satan, who looks upon men as usurpers of what he believes to be rightfully his despises mankind and continually endeavors to eliminate the whole of mankind from God’s creation. In the United States he has made great headway in this quest…thanks to the liberal/progressive community, particularly the satanically endowed Elite and the collective of spiritually deprived politicians who carry out the debilitating programs hatched in the mind of Satan, the greatest criminal in the Universe.
CORRUPTING THE YOUTH
Our youths – those who were fortunate to escape the butchering hands of the filthy abortionists, and from equally despicable mothers who deliver them up as sacrifices to the idols of worldly and temporal desires, are increasingly being abandoned by non nurturing parents to the inducements of progressively promoted socially destructive pursuits.
These young people enter communities as dominates of the political and social secular humanists who immerse them into the nasty and debilitating vices promoted by the now dominant corporate elite that fancies itself, as a whole, as our social authoritarian motivator.
These unfortunate young people are enrolled into public schools and indoctrinated, Kindergarten through College, in the corrupting values of these same conscientious less and irreverent liberalists; they learn to live on the dole and expect that the necessities and luxuries of life will be handed them on a Silver platter by an ever increasingly indebted society.
They are possessors of totally worthless liberal arts degrees paid for by the taxpayers, and must after graduation live either on their parents or on the welfare dole. They have learned nothing in regard to useful trades and believe that the world owes them a living and a cushy life at the expense of the hard- working industrious souls that pay exorbitant taxes to support this collective of pampered lifetime drags on society.
GROUPING THE FACTIONS
Ours is a bifurcated society, and it is divided thusly:
The first group is comprised of the hard- working industrious souls that pay exorbitant taxes to support a rapidly burgeoning collective of pampered lifetime drags on society, this group – spoken of earlier – are re rapidly dwindling and since they are the life’s blood of society, when they have become extinct through the stupidity of the progressives of the political domain, this nation will collapse and become non-consequential on the world scene.
Next we have the totally worthless eaters, too damn lazy to work and provide for themselves or families, but not too proud to ease their shiftless carcasses down to the welfare offices to dip into the appropriated assets that have been stolen and accumulated by government entities for distribution to the pokes who have no pride or worth.
The third group is comprised of those who believe themselves to be elites bestowed with the wisdom to order the rest of society to comply with their every wish and desire in regards to social duties and responsibilities. These have attained their status by happenstances of life and in most cases have accumulated obscene wealth; a wealth that they believe affords them an exalted place in society and places upon them in a responsibility to create the rules that govern the entirety of the people whom they believe to be inferior and undeserving.
PAYING THE PRICE ONE WAY OR ANOTHER
God holds all governments and the peoples of the Nations morally accountable for their actions. Evil and wrong will be punished; and by His will societies adhering to moral principles pronounced by His commandments will be honored and recompensed. Goodness and righteousness will ultimately prevail over evil, and we reap, by God’s power, the profits, good or bad, of that which we have sown. National morality will, in the end, profit the obedient, the moral choices we make in this life are infused with an eternal significance. This nation must change course, lest it be swallowed by the roiling tide heretofore described.
The slaughter and sacrifice of innocent babies to worldly lusts must cease, sodomy must not be either condoned or promoted, unlawful expropriation of personal chattel by the government, thievery by business interests and service providers must be eradicated, and the denigration of Biblical truth and of the living God must cease. If this nation is to survive, God’s laws must be enforced and obeyed. If the Ten Commandments are not honored, we can kiss this nation goodbye.
Repentance is in order and it must be immediately forthcoming. This nation will either live by the Word of God, or it will die by the will of God.
NOW YOU KNOW WHO SHOULD BE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT!

Send him a thank you for his beautiful use of God’s most powerful force.

By Wendy McElroy
The Palm Beach, Florida police program is the first of its kind in America. The Community Partners Against Terrorism (CPAT) initiative sprang out of the half-billion dollars dropped into Urban Area Security grants by the Department of Homeland Security. CPAT's founder Sheriff Ric Bradshaw explains the purpose of the new police hot line that solicits anonymous tips:
“We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor, and he’s gonna shoot him. What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’”
Bradshaw wants to know who mutters against “the system” and who hangs a “Don't Tread on Me” banner on a bedroom wall. A video on his website urges local citizens to report on suspicious activity such as the photographing of a bridge.
Local authorities can often perform functions that are legally forbidden to the federal DHS. In 2002, President George W. Bush introduced a domestic-spying program called Operation TIPS (Terrorism Information and Prevention System) by which average citizens reported suspicious activity.
It especially appealed for information from workers who had access to private dwellings such as plumbers or television repairmen. TIPS was eventually abandoned due to a backlash that persistently compared the program to the domestic spy structure of the Stasi in communist East Germany.
Many critics of CPAT have zeroed in on discrediting Ric Bradshaw, the man. For example, whistleblower Mark Dougan is an ex-deputy from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office; he runs a website devoted to documenting Bradshaw's extensive corruption. Bradshaw's response? A massive criminal investigation that resulted in five felony charges being lodged against another officer for leaking information to Dougan's site.
Dougan commented, “They couldn’t charge me criminally so in February 2013, so the Sheriff’s campaign manager attempted to purchase my web site in the amount of $75,000 using taxpayer’s money. I refused…”
Bradshaw is less interesting than the dynamics of the hot line itself. Utterly ruthless and depraved civil servants are a dime a dozen. The more compelling question is how their policies affect average citizens who are suddenly able to wield the power of government against their neighbors.
Bradshaw has assured the public that the police “know how to sift through frivolous complaints.” But the respected law enforcement expert Jim Donahue has argued that the Sheriff's office “is led by the kind of people my dad fought in WWII to defeat. They are threatening the very fabric of our republic.”
The impact of being able to turn in your neighbor for their opinions or other peaceful behavior is well documented. It is a power that encourages the worst within human nature and rewards those people who lie and betray all trust. A network of citizen-informers not only creates the Stasi or Nazi state but also the Stasi or Nazi human being.
In his remarkable book, The Gestapo and German Society: Enforcing Racial Policy 1933-45 (Oxford, 1990), historian Robert Gellately presents a riveting window into the three-way collaboration between the totalitarianism, a complicit citizenry, and state persecution of 'the other'.
The book arose from a chance encounter during research Gellately was conducting on WWII at a German archive. A librarian mentioned a collection of 19,000 Gestapo files that a Nazi officer had lacked the time to destroy. Although the collection covered only one region, Gellately expanded the research as best he could and found the results to be eerily similar.
The files changed his view of domestic spying in Nazi Germany.
Previously, when Gellately had asked Germans from that era about the presence of secret police, they replied “it was everywhere” – behind every curtain and under every rock. After all, how else could the Gestapo so effectively detect the hidden Jews, a murmur of dissent, the ownership of forbidden literature, or a long-ago socialist sentiment? These matters were cloaked by secrecy, private dwellings and the passage of time.
Gellately uncovered a domestic spy structure in which the average German flooded the Gestapo with rumors and reports (true or false) on their neighbors' behavior and background. The Gestapo functioned primarily as a filter for the information flow upon which they then acted to enforce policy.
Perhaps a former classmate remembered someone was Jewish. A neighbor may have glimpsed a forbidden book through a window or on a casual visit. A business competitor might suspect a shop of selling more than its 'share' of rationed items. The Gestapo was successful at the minutia of repression because it enjoyed the popular participation of average people.
The phenomenon is not evidence of a “flaw in the German character”; it points to a tendency within human nature itself. Gellately found informers were not primarily motivated by patriotism, fear, or an ideological commitment to Hitler.
Rather they were motivated by greed with businessmen reporting on partners to acquire the full share of a company. The envious turned in a richer neighbor. The spurned informed on ex-lovers and romantic rivals. The petty revenged their small disputes by calling in the Gestapo. And, then, there were those who basked in the self-importance of being listened to by authorities.
Gellately's research led to a subsequent book, Backing Hitler: Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany, 1933-1944 (Oxford, 2001). Backing Hitler directly challenges the idea that Nazi Germany was the 'achievement' of an evil elite. It occurred because a sufficient number of Germans actively cooperated. Backing Hitler also argues against the idea “it cannot happen here” because the motives that led to cooperation are grounded in a human nature shared by all nationalities.
Gallately commented on a German woman who had been interviewed for a show the BBC was presenting about his work. He stated, “When she was presented with a Gestapo document she had signed that denounced a Jewish woman, she admitted the signature was authentic….She then said, 'But that's not me'.” The woman was expressing a fundamental truth about people within society.
When encouraged and rewarded by authority to act viciously, when their vile behavior is protected from consequences, many people will become the worst versions of themselves. They will become expressions of statism. By contrast, if viciousness is discouraged and punished by a civil society, the same people may never harm another human being. Human interaction is often defined by a framework of financial and psychological incentives.
Operation TIPS and CPAT will create the worst possible version of an American – an American who is indistinguishable from the German woman who turned in an acquaintance for being Jewish. Like the Nazi informer, the American may blithely deny the viciousness of his act by saying “that is not me.”
Of course, it is. At least, that is who the average American could become when handed the power of the state to use anonymously and with no consequences against anyone he dislikes. He is the American that the ruling elite wish to create. [And he is the American all your friends and neighbors will become. The Stasi America is coming. Get out of its way while you still can.-Ed.]
No wonder Obama's May 5th message to the graduating class of Ohio State University was to “reject” the voice that warns “tyranny [is] always lurking just around the corner.” He would rather have Americans scrutinize their neighbors than monitor the progress of corner-creeping tyranny.

I really don’t think many American’s are aware of just how severe the ideological divide is in America, and this article open’s the door for thinking people to discover what few will admit. YOUR NEIGHBOR OF MANY YEARS MAY BE YOUR WORST ENEMY! If I have learned anything from these last nine years of research, it is this idea that we are all Americans is BS! MANY ARE NOT! Granted, that statement requires a definition, and mine is this; an American is a person who holds to, and dies for a set of principals, and in our case that was supposed to be the Constitution (FOR) the United States of America. Unfortunately, even that is now suspected of being a surreptitious act of the International Banksters, and Great Brittan. So it boils down to having an inner commitment to Truth, Mercy, and Honesty. So where is the Honesty in a person who reports you to the police without having first proven their claim? Even then there could be extenuating circumstances to consider, such as, If you saw me shoot someone, there is always the possibility the bastard deserved it. And make no mistake about it, some people do deserve to be dead. The law, is not always the best answer to a problem. The best solution is for Americans to have that inner commitment I wrote about above. If you need a better example, read this; if anyone kidnapped, and raped my daughter and enslaved her to prostitution through forced use of drugs, I would kill them in a heart-beat and never apologize. The requirement is to have indisputable proof first. Call me what ever you want, I could care less! If we were all Real Americans at heart, we would not need the Law, and the scumbags that make a killing from it. The people who think they are American’s, but are not, are those assholes who are convinced they can write laws that cure all problems, and they decide what a problem is. I have never met the Lady who wrote the above article, and probably never will, but She is without doubt, a real American.

If there is hope, you are it. You are motivated to find truth. You can think outside the box. You can see through propaganda. You are the remnant with the common sense that once was a common American virtue. You come to this site, because you get explanations that are not agenda-driven, that are not BS, that are not right-wing or left-wing, conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat. You get explanations based on my lifetime of unique education and experience. Some of you are young enough to be equipped with the energy and courage to organize whatever resistance there may be to the Gestapo State that is descending on the United States of America.

Until the George W. Bush Regime, I never thought that it could happen here. I could not imagine law professors and Department of Justice (sic) officials writing legal memos justifying, in the name of a hyped “war on terror,” the termination of civil rights for United States Citizens. We were the land of the free. The Constitution was our bedrock. Yet, the Constitution and Bill of Rights were easily taken away from the inattentive American people.
The Constitution did not protect native inhabitants and slaves who were not considered part of the American population, but the universal suppression in the US of non-whites’ rights produced in the end the civil rights movement that brought moral awareness of the wrongs and successfully hitched its cause to the founding documents of the country.
Where today is moral awareness as Washington bombs civilian populations around the globe? Where is the moral conscience of the the civil rights movement as the First Black President, the first member of the oppressed class to sit in the Oval Office, validates the Bush Regime’s assertion of the right of the unaccountable executive to ignore habeas corpus and due process? Not satisfied with this crime, Obama asserted the right of the executive branch to murder any citizen suspected, without proof being offered to a court, of undefined “support of terrorism.” Today all Americans have fewer rights than blacks had prior to the Civil Rights Act.
Anything, including a column critical of war and the police state, can be declared to be “in support of terrorism.” As the tyrant Bush put it: “You are with us, or you are against us.”
The print and TV media and many Internet sites got the message: Serve Washington’s agenda, and will you will prosper. Advertisers and the CIA will pump money into your coffers. Challenge us and you will be demonized and could face a military tribunal, indefinite detention, or assassination. Bradley Manning and Julian Assange are being persecuted for telling the truth.
So far, Washington has convinced the public that Washington’s terror is mainly limited to Muslims, who are obligingly demonized by print, TV, and much of the Internet media. However, if Muslim American citizens lack civil liberty, so do all other American citizens. Those who are safe are those who ally with the tyrant and remain subservient.
To ally with the tyrant, a United States citizen must have no moral conscience, no sense of justice, no compassion for the innocent and dispossessed. These are the worst kind of Americans; yet, they are the only ones who can succeed in the present environment.
Every time I write a column that is the truth or the truth as I am able to discover it, instead of hawking the propaganda line, I move up on the list of those who are persona non grata in the Empire.
A writer can find himself demonized and declared a kook simply by reporting findings from distinguished scientists, high-rise architects, structural engineers, first responders, and an international collection of high government officials. Not too long ago a writer or reporter for the Huffington Post discovered to his surprise that Pat Buchanan and I disagreed with all the wars that had been launched to protect us from terrorism. He asked me for an interview, and I agreed.
An hour or so after the interview was posted on the Huffington Post, I received an emergency call or email. He had been criticized for interviewing me, “for giving you a forum when you are a 9/11 sceptic.” He was unsure that it was possible for a Reagan presidential appointee to be a 9/11 sceptic and asked if I was.
I replied that I had reported the findings of scientists, architects, engineers, and the public testimony of first responders, because I thought these were qualified people whose opinions at least ranked equally with the politicians on the 9/11 Commission and the talking heads on Fox “News” and CNN, none of whom could pass a high school test in the laws of physics, much less high-rise architecture and structural engineering.
The Huffington Post writer panicked. Instead of taking down the interview, he felt impelled to assure readers and his boss that he had been deceived. He wrote at the beginning and ending of the interview that he did not know he was interviewing someone about the Iraq War who had given ink to those conspiracy theorists who raised questions about the truthfulness of the US government. He wrote that my views on the wars should be disregarded, because I wrote that scientists, architects, engineers, and first responders provided evidence contrary to the government’s claims.
And there you have it.
The Huffington Post has far more readers than I do, and far more money. There is no limit on the ability of the Huffington Post to tell and sell the lies of the Agenda.
I can remember when I was a Wall Street Journal editor and columnist, a Business Week columnist, a Scripps Howard News Service columnist and appeared regularly in the major mainstream print media and even from time to time on TV talking head programs. Today, the editor or producer who gave me a forum would be fired instantly, and they all know it.
It is discouraging that after so many transparent lies and orchestrations–weapons of mass destruction, al-Qaeda connections, Iranian nukes–the majority of Americans still believe the government. Americans are even buying into the line that Syria is ruled by a brutal dictator whose overthrow justifies Washington’s alliance with its 9/11 enemy, al-Qaeda, in order to overthrow a secular ruler who constrains al-Qaeda.
Washington has come full circle. Its enemy is now its ally. Washington wasted trillions of dollars and countless lives in eleven years of war and constructed a domestic police state all in order to combat al Qaeda with whom Washington is now allied against the Syrian government.
The public’s response to the Boston Marathon Bombing is even more discouraging. Not even King George and his Redcoats could achieve what Homeland Security just pulled off–locking down 100 square miles of Boston and its suburbs with heavily armed troops tramping through citizens’ homes barking harsh orders, all justified by a hunt for one 19-year old suspect. It was the Third Reich’s Gestapo in operation right here in “freedom and democracy” America. Ron Paul is correct that the suspension of civil liberty is a greater threat than the bombing. Note the government’s euphemism for martial law–”shelter-in-place.”
Two brothers have been convicted in the media and by the Obama Regime, including the president’s own words, of a bombing without the public ever being presented with any evidence except anonymous unattributed reports and a film of the alleged brothers walking with backpacks, which were ubiquitous.
I am old enough to remember when it was impermissible for government and media to convict a person prior to the jury’s verdict. Americans once lived in a free country governed by the rule of law in which a person was innocent until proven guilty.
What was the reason or evidence for naming the brothers suspects? Was any reason given, or was the film of the two walking with backpacks simply shown over and over, hour after hour, day after day, with the media reporting that these are the suspects. In other words, was it beat into your brain that they were suspects because there they are in the film? If not, why was the same film shown repeatedly? Fox “News” was still showing the film on April 26, eleven days after the bombing and might still be showing it. Did you experience: “Here are the suspects. See them. They have backpacks. See. We know that they are suspects, because, see, there they are.”
When is the last time the media investigated anything? A good candidate for investigation is the post-bombing rampage the brothers allegedly went on, robbing a 7/11 store (later contradicted by local police), killing a campus policeman, shooting a transit cop, high-jacking a SUV and releasing the owner.
Why would terrorists seeking to escape in order to strike again call attention to themselves in such outlandish ways and release a car-jacked owner to alert the police of the tag number? If the brothers were willing to kill police with gunfire and innocents with bombs, why release the guy whose vehicle they stole so he could inform the police of the license plate and make the brothers’ capture easier? What is the evidence, other than “reports from authorities,” that these events occurred or had any more connection to the brothers than the falsely reported 7/11 robbery that local police disavowed? Why does the US media simply accept whatever government authorities say?
Where is the evidence of a first shoot-out and a second shoot-out? The second shoot- out consisted of the authorities bombarding a motionless youth bleeding from wounds in a boat with multiple volleys of stun grenades and then multiple gunshots. The unconscious 19 year old was unarmed and unable to respond to the boat owner who discovered him. As he lies there, he is shot many times, including through the throat, and is on life support. But the very next day, according to the presstitute media, he is providing hand-written confessions.
Was the purpose of the reports of a murderous rampage to create fear among the population so that they would accept martial law and home invasions by armed troops ordering American citizens out of their homes with hands over their heads on the pretext that they might be harboring the Boston Marathon Bomber?
The videos of the street celebration in which Bostonians thank the police and of the two Boston families, if not scripted by actors, shows Americans who far from opposing the police state welcome it. A father says that he with his daughter in his arms was forced out of his home by troops pointing automatic rifles at their heads, but that he was thankful for the safety the police provided him by violating every civil right that the Constitution gave him. A woman says it was scary but that “the police are just doing their jobs.” Are Americans now so brainwashed that they attribute their safety to the presence of a Gestapo Police State?
Why have detention facilities been built? Why did Homeland Security purchase a billion or more rounds of ammunition? Why does Homeland Security have 2,700 tanks and a para-military force? Why aren’t these questions being investigated?
The US Constitution is the product of 900 years of human efforts to restrain brutal government and to make government subject to law. It only took Bush and Obama eleven years to get rid of it.
This is my quarterly appeal for your support. If you want this site to continue, donate. Unless it brings you more enlightenment than it brings grief to me, there is no reason for it to exist.
I SEE NO WAY THAT ANOTHER CIVIL WAR CAN BE AVOIDED!
OUR PRESENT FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS WORSE THAN GREAT BRITAIN WAS, AND DUE TO THE ADVANCEMENT IN WEAPONS, ONLY A LONG AND BLOODY HIT AND RUN SUSTAINED EFFORT ON THE PART OF PATRIOTS WILL FREE US ONCE AGAIN. LOCK AND LOAD FOLKS, THE SHIT IS CLOSE TO THE FAN. WHO HAS THE BALLS TO SUPPORT THE MEN WHO WILL FREE YOU FROM TYRANNY? WILL THE SOUTH RISE AGAIN? DAMN RIGHT THEY WILL!!!

THE SOVEREIGN CITIZEN by: Judge Dale, retired
Our federal government has instructed our federal, state and local police agencies that everyone who purports to be a SOVEREIGN should be TREATED as a TERRORIST! They have also brainwashed the American public into believing that being a SOVEREIGN is anti-American and unpatriotic! Perhaps this is: “The POT calling the KETTLE black?”
WHAT IS SOVEREIGNTY? It is the inherent right and prerogative of a civilized people to rule itself, and to dictate all of the forms and conditions of the institutions it sets up to carry out this rule. Ironically, the U.S. SUPREME COURT agrees with those people who claim to be SOVEREIGN citizens of the American Republic!
Bond vs. UNITED STATES, 529 US 334 – 2000, The Supreme Court held that the American People are in fact Sovereign and not the States or the Government. The court went on to define that local, state and federal law enforcement officers were committing unlawful actions against the Sovereign People by the enforcement of the laws and are personally liable for their actions.
Bond v. United States, 529 US 334 – 2000 – Supreme Court – Cited by 761 litigants in other cases.
Bond v. US, 131 S. Ct. 2355 – 2011 – Supreme Court – Cited by 306 “ “
Bond v. US, 1 F. 3d 631 – 1993 – Court of Appeals, 7th – Cited by 66 “ “
What are the implications of this 2000, U. S. Supreme Court ruling?
1] The delegates to the first Federal Convention prohibited the use of corporations by all governments representing the American Republic. Therefore, all of these corporate governments and their corporate laws are a usurpation of the organic Constitution of the United States of America. All State Governments are now sub-corporations of the Federal Government, making all Courts and all law enforcement personnel, corporate federal agencies or employees. [See: James Madison Journal of the Federal Convention, Vol. 2, P. 722] and [Pull up your State Code on your PC and search the Code for the words “District of Columbia” and “Federal Government.” You will receive about 1000 references linking your state to the federal government.]
2] The state and federal government is a corporation and therefore the Congress, State Legislatures, City Councils, Municipalities and all State and Federal Courts are corporate entities posing as Constitutional branches of government.
3] Corporations are privately owned businesses, meaning that the Corporate United States belongs to one or more private individuals, which is always governed by a Board of Directors. The Corporate United States is privately owned by a group of European Royal and Elite individuals tied to the Federal Reserve System and the letters of incorporation are recorded in the Vatican. The President of the United States is actually the CEO of the United States and the Congress and all others are corporate employees. Everything they do is in the interest of the corporate owners! I can’t access those documents because of National Security.
4] In order to promulgate and enforce Criminal Laws to govern the SOVEREIGN public, government must be SOVEREIGN too, which is an accepted RULE of LAW derived from the, Ancient Law of Kings. Corporations are not and can never be SOVEREIGN. They are not real, they are a fiction and only exist on paper.
5] Therefore, all laws created by these government corporations are private corporate regulations called public law, statutes, codes and ordinances to conceal their true nature. Do the Judge and your lawyer know about this? You bet they do!
6] Since these government bodies are not SOVEREIGN, they cannot promulgate or enforce CRIMINAL LAWS; they can only create and enforce CIVIL LAWS, which are duty bound to comply with the LAW of CONTRACTS. The Law of Contracts requires signed written agreements and complete transparency! Did you ever agree to be arrested and tried under any of their corporate statutes? For that matter, did you ever agree to contract with them by agreeing to be sued for violating their corporate regulations?
[Citations and Complaints are contracts but they lack transparency because you were never told what might happen to you if you agree to contract, and that you had a right to refuse the accommodation!]
7] Do any of Americas Courts have Jurisdiction over a SOVEREIGN? Yes … but only by your consent to be judged by the Court. Can they compel [Summon or Subpoena] you to appear or participate in their process? No … they can’t compel you and Yes … they can ask but you can reject the accommodation in writing and nothing can be done about it because you have refused to give the court jurisdiction over you!
8] Enforcement of these corporate statutes by local, state and federal law enforcement officers are unlawful actions being committed against the SOVEREIGN public and these officers can be held personally liable for their actions. [Bank v. U.S., 529 US 334-2000]
9] There being no Constitutional Criminal Laws or Transparency in the American Justice System, everyone arrested, convicted and sentenced to prison under these CIVIL LAWS are in prison by CONSENT and therein, all American Jails are actually DEBTORS PRISONS!
10] Most of the County and State Prisons and all of the Federal Prisons are privately owned corporate businesses for profit, which kick back to the sentencing Judges. The Bureau of Prisons Privatization Management Branch provides general oversight, for these institutions. So if you are convicted in these Courts, you can expect to serve some jail time! Now you know why America has such high prison populations!
11] Can the State Government and Courts take Custody of your children? Only with your consent, otherwise their agents and officers can be held personally liable for their actions! Orphans are a different matter and can become wards of the Court until emancipated.
Corporate governments are a usurpation of the organic American Constitution and this corporatist onslaught in America has since its creation, been an ANTI-SOVEREIGN and TERRORIST REGIME and are in fact the real TERRORIST and TRAITORS to the American Republic.

Craft International Services hired guns at the Boston Marathon:
FBI Responsibility for US Terror Plots
Boston bombing suspect was unarmed when shot by police despite early claims
Why Such Secrecy about Private Military Contractor’s Men Working the Event?
There is something very wrong with all of the stories. This is a good job of investigative newspaper reporting that has discovered an attempted cover-up of something. Who knows how big or how small? Impossible to know…. Marilyn Barnewall
By Dave Lindorff
Speaking as an investigative reporter with almost 40 years’s experience, I can say that when government officials won’t talk, they’re generally hiding something embarrassing or worse.
I tried, and nobody will talk about those Craft International Services private security personnel who were widely observed and photographed near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, wearing security ear-pieces, hats and T-shirts bearing the company’s skull logo, and all wearing the same dark coats, khaki pants and combat boots, some carrying what appear to have been radiation detectors. (I got no hard answers, though there were some inadvertent hints given.)
I first contacted a man identifying himself as Jack Fleming, a public affairs person with the Boston Athletic Assn., sponsor of the marathon. Fleming advised me that “If you want to ask about that you should contact the Commonwealth (of Massachusetts) Executive Office of Public Safety.”
I called that agency and spoke with the public information office there, a man named Terrell. He first said, "Did you call the Marathon organizers?" When I replied that I had, and that they had said to call his office, he replied, "They did?" Then he said, “You should call the City of Boston Police Department. They released a security plan to some media organizations.”
Indeed they had released that plan to the Boston Globe. Based upon the information it got from the police the article the Globe ran, did report that the Police had deployed “air patrols, K9 units, and more than 1,000 uniformed officers and soldiers along the 26-mile course and the finish line,” but it made no mention of the private contracting of soldiers-for-hire, which is what Craft International does (see the Craft website). News agency Reuters reported, meanwhile, that a top official for the Massachusetts state Homeland Security Department, Undersecretary Kurt Schwartz, told a group at Harvard U. that his agency had “planned” for a possible bombing attack on the marathon, even running a “table-top” exercise about such an event a week before the race.
I called the Boston Police to ask if they had hired the Craft International personnel who were observed at the scene just before and after the bombing, and was told by the public affairs office there that “Anything having to do with the investigation of the bombing would have to be referred to the FBI Boston Division office.” When I pointed out that I wasn’t asking anything about the investigation, but was simply asking who had hired the security personnel from Craft International, the answer was simply repeated: “You’ll have to ask the FBI.”
So I called the FBI, and got a public affairs person there named Amanda Cox. Her initial response to my question was, “I do not have any information on that.”

I then said I had been referred to her by the Boston Police Department, and said that photos of the scene after the bombing had shown Craft International personnel conversing with FBI agents. She then put down the phone, and I could hear her turn to a supervisor and ask, her voice muffled, “This guy’s asking about the Craft Security Consultants — who hired them and what they were doing.”
I next overheard the muffled voice of another woman to whom she had been speaking reply, “I think you could safely say, ‘I do know we worked with a lot of people who worked on security at the marathon…’” After that I couldn’t make out what was being said.
Cox later returned to the phone, and instead told me, “I’d refer you to the company on any information about who hired them.” (Taken together the overheard conversation and the official answer from Cox would at least seem to confirm that Craft's people were hired for the event, and that the FBI knows a lot more than it is willing to say about them.)
Next I called Craft International. The company has no phone number listed on its website — just a general email address of email@example.com (to which I wrote to asking for information, but which elicited no response)–but I found one listed for their headquarters office at 2101 Cedar Springs Rd., Suite 1400, Dallas, TX, in a listing on the company published in a directory in Bloomberg Businessweek, This entry noted that the company, in addition to “providing security, defense, and combat weapons training services for military, police, corporate and civilian clients in the US and internationally,” also “offers corporate and private and civilian training services…” The number, published in a business magazine, was clearly meant as a contact for potential customers to call.
A woman answered the phone brightly with the company's name. However, when I identified myself as a reporter, and said I was wondering if someone could tell me who had hired personnel from the firm to work at the Boston Marathon, she responded with a flummoxed: “Um, I um, don’t really have any information on that. I’m just an answering service.”
I replied, “Look, the number I called is listed as the number of the company’s corporate headquarters at 2101 Cedar Springs Road. You’re not an answering service.”
At that point she said, “Let me see who I can transfer you to.”
However, after a long pause, she was back, and said, “The answer I’ve been given is that you should go to the website, where there’s an email address you can write to with your question.”
I had already done that, I told her. She then said she couldn’t help me and hung up.
I also called the US Department of Homeland Security, but a women named Angela who answered the press office number for this public government agency (she refused to provide her last name despite being the public information office) said the DHS media office was “only taking inquiries sent in by email.” I sent in an inquiry asking if any unit of the DHS had hired Craft International to provide security at the Boston Marathon, but so far have received no response.
As things stand, since it's highly unlikely that Craft International, a private for-profit enterprise founded by the late ace Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle, would have "hired" itself to police the Marathon gratis, it seems pretty clear that we had rent-a-special forces-soldier people, hired by some agency, at the scene of the bombing ahead of the bombing.
And we have no reporting on this in the mainstream corporate media.
Why? I have no answer to that.
I did write to Andrea Estes, the lead writer of the Globe’s piece on police security planning mentioned above, who is described in her bio on the Globe’s website staff page as an “investigative reporter specializing in government accountability.”
I called and left a message on her phone, and sent her an email, asking if she had looked into the Craft Security personnel, to see who hired them, what they were doing at the race finish line, and why they appeared be carrying radiation detectors. She has so far not responded to my request for information and assistance concerning anything she had done or learned about this, or whether she had looked into it at all.
Certainly there is a big accountability question. A bunch of them actually. Here are a few:
* If Craft International people were hired, who hired them and why?
* If it was the Boston Police or the FBI that hired them, why won’t they just say so? Simply hiring outside security help should not be a secret, and could in no way affect the investigation into the bombing and the captured suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, so why the secrecy about that? Given all the police presence, and the size of the FBI's Boston division, why did they need those extra guys from a private rent-a-soldier firm?
* If it was not the Boston Police or the FBI, what agency did hire the company, and why?
* If it was the state’s Homeland Security Dept. or or the state Executive Office of Public Safety, or perhaps more likely, the US Department of Homeland Security, did they notify the FBI that they had done so, and tell the agency what had prompted them to do this?
* The big overarching question when it comes to who hired Craft International is, what possible gain in security could have been achieved by adding what appears to be seven guys (or perhaps a few more who didn’t appear in photos) from a private security firm when the Boston Police had in place over 1000 armed security people from their office and the National Guard, and when, as became evident immediately after the bombs went off, a large number of FBI personnel were also on hand?
Unless, of course, the Craft Security people were aware of something that we, the public, including the race participants and spectators, and perhaps even the police and FBI, were not aware of.
Transparency is critical to accountability. At this point, it is clear that we have had a massive failure of the national security state. Despite the fact that the FBI was aware of concerns about Tarmelan Tsarnaev, and the fact that the CIA had him on a watch list, he appears to have been able to work on line to learn how to build a powerful homemade bomb, to obtain the materials, including a substantial quantity of black powder, to build a number of them, and, allegedly with the help of his younger brother Dzhokhar, to place them near the finish line and detonate two of them, killing three people and injuring as many as 200. That’s a huge intelligence fail.
It would be an even bigger fail if it turns out that some agency had awareness of a credible threat and that it hired Craft International personnel to prevent it. We clearly need to know, and have a right to demand to know, who hired those men and why. After all, at a minimum, on the face of things, they did an abysmal job of preventing a bombing right in front of their supposedly well-trained noses.
And of course, as I wrote earlier, there is also another question, which is really disturbing: The image of the exploded backpack released by the FBI and identified as the remains of the pack that was carrying one of the two pressure-cooker bombs, prominently displays a white square on a black background. This is not a doctored photograph; it’s the photograph that was released by the FBI. There are also at least two photos depicting one of the Craft International men who is wearing a black backpack identical to several of the other Craft International personnel. The same white square is also visible on the top of his pack.
There does not appear to be any such white marking — square or otherwise — on the top of the black backpack worn by Tarmelan Tsarnaev, as observed in several security photos taken of him (Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was shown carrying a smaller white or light-colored pack, slung over one shoulder). Check out the images below of Tarmelan, the exploded bag and the Craft International character:
FBI image of exploded pack with white square, white square on Craft guy's pack, and Tamerlan Tsarnaev (rt.) with pack but clearly no white square marking
I am not drawing any conclusions from any of this, but I will say that when government agencies at all levels and a private contracting firm are all this obtuse and secretive (and in some cases even deceptive) about what should be a simple question — who hired these men? — my suspicions are aroused.
Somebody’s clearly hiding something.
And by the way, why aren't the mainstream media asking about this? Are corporate media journalists so intimidated about being labeled “conspiracy nuts” that they can't do their jobs? At a minimum, this goes to the question of accountability. It also goes to the question of inter-agency communication or lack of it. And given what we know about how many times the FBI has been an active encourager and enabler of terror plots which it later thwarts and claims credit for preventing, there’s the question, too of potential official culpability. Furthermore, when an horrific incident like this is used to justify such new threats to our Constitutional freedom as an unprecedented martial law-style lockdown of an entire 1-million-person metropolitan area and a precedent-setting deliberately Miranda-free, attorney-free interrogation of a hospitalized, gravely wounded and sedated suspect, it is critical that the whole story be told, not just the official one.
FBI Responsibility for US Terror Plots
By Stephen Lendman
Boston’s marathon bombings leave disturbing questions unanswered. Official accounts lack credibility. Mounting evidence suggests FBI responsibility. It doesn’t surprise.
Project Censored’s fourth top 2013 censored story headlined “FBI Agents Responsible for Majority of Terrorist Plots in the United States.” More on that below.
Post-9/11, George Bush declared war on terrorism. It continues under Obama. America needs enemies. When none exist, they’re invented.
Muslims are America’s target of choice. Numerous innocent victims are entrapped. It occurs when law enforcement officials or agents induce, influence, or provoke crimes that otherwise wouldn’t be committed.
Project Censored discussed Russia Today’s report. It headlined “FBI organizes almost all terror plots in the US.”
Mother Jones covered the same issue. Its article titled “The Informant” said “(T)he FBI has built a massive network of spies (allegedly) to prevent another domestic attack. But are they busting terrorist plots – or leading them?”
The FBI employs around 15,000 undercover agents. In 1975 they numbered 1,500. In 1980 it was 2,800. By 1986 it was 6,000.
They’re involved in sting operations designed to entrap. They’re well paid. They earn around $100,000 per assignment or more.
Law-abiding people are targeted. According to Mother Jones, “in case after case, the government provides the plot, the means, and the opportunity.”
FBI informants target Muslim communities. They seek members unhappy with America’s imperial war agenda. Mother Jones said their names are “cross-referenced with existing intelligence data, such as immigration and criminal records.”
“FBI agents may then assign an undercover operative to approach the target by posing as a radical. Sometimes” a plot is proposed. Explosives and/or other weapons are provided.
Once “enough incriminating information” is gotten, an arrest follows. A press conference announces another “foiled plot.”
The process repeats ad nauseam. From fall 2010 – fall 2011 alone, Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at UC-Berkeley examined 508 alleged terrorism prosecutions. They found:
nearly half involved paid informants;
sting operations targeted 158 defendants;
agent provocateurs were involved in 49 plots;
“with three exceptions, (all) high-profile domestic terror plots of the last decade were actually FBI stings;”
most often, “key encounters” between informants and targets aren’t recorded;
proving entrapment is hard to impossible; and
even when evidence is suspect or lacking, beating terrorism-related charges in court rarely happens.
According to defense attorney Martin Stolar:
“The problem with the cases we’re talking about is that defendants would not have done anything if not kicked in the ass by government agents.”
The FBI “create(s) crimes to solve crimes so they can claim a victory in the war on terror.”
Attorney General Eric Holder defends entrapment. He’s done so publicly. He’s done it by calling provocative targeting terrorism stings. He’s unapologetic.
In March 2012, he spoke at Northwestern University School of Law. “We are a nation at war,” he said. ”And, in this war, we face a nimbleand determined enemy that cannot be underestimated.”
Justice Department lawyers and agents aim to “detect and disrupt terrorist plots, to prosecute suspected terrorists, and to identify and implement the (so-called) legal tools necessary to keep the American people safe.”
He defended disturbing practices involved, as well as military commissions and targeted assassinations of individuals alleged to be “imminent threat(s).”
He justified lawless practices on grounds of national security.
Earlier in December 2010, he addressed a San Francisco area Muslim audience. He called tactics used an “essential law enforcement tool in uncovering and preventing terror attacks.” He did so despite evidence many times they’re used to entrap.
Attendees weren’t pleased. Muslim Advocates president, Farhana Khera said entrapment operations “may be getting people involved in (alleged) terrorism who otherwise would not have done anything.”
“These operations also divert investigators from actual threats and provoke widespread anti-Muslim sentiment,” she added.
According to Council on American-Islam Relations spokesman Ibrahim Hooper:
“We maintain concerns about FBI policies regarding informants in mosques and provocateurs in our community.”
“There’s a sense of being under siege in many Muslim communities. People just assume there are agents or informants in their mosque now. It’s a fact of life.”
Law Professor David Cole says beating terrorism-related charges is near impossible. He told Mother Jones:
“The plots people are accused of being apart of – attacking subway systems or trying to bomb a building – are so frightening that they can overwhelm a jury.”
It dares not convict. Members are intimidated to do so. Disturbing unconstitutional issues aren’t addressed. Prosecutorial and FBI claims about keeping Americans safe don’t wash. Many cases explain why.
In December 2010, the Washington Post headlined “Tension grows between Calif. Muslims, FBI after informant infiltrates mosque,” saying:
Craig Monteilh, aka Farouk al-Aziz, code name Oracle, spied on dozens of Irvine Islamic Center Muslims. He did so “in a quest for potential terrorists….But the FBI’s approach has come under fire from some Muslims.”
“In the Irvine case, Monteilh’s mission….backfired. Muslims were so alarmed by his talk of violent jihad that they obtained a restraining order against him.”
They reported him to the same FBI office that recruited him. He helped build terrorism charges against a mosque member. It collapsed.
The Justice Department “took the extraordinary step of dropping charges against the worshipper, who Monteilh had caught on tape(allegedly) agreeing to blow up buildings, law enforcement officialssaid.”
“Prosecutors (falsely) portrayed the man as a dire threat.”
Monteilh went public. He revealed FBI tactics. He said his “handlers” trained him to entrap Muslims in mosques, at home and at work.
He was a well-paid informant. Court records and other documents showed he got $177,000 tax free in 15 months.
Southern California Muslims cited a pattern of pervasive surveillance and entrapment. According to Islamic Shura Council of Southern California Executive Director Shakeel Syed:
“The community feels betrayed. They got a guy, a bona fide criminal (just out of prison for grand theft), and obviously trained him and sent him to infiltrate mosques.”
“And when things went sour, they ditched him and he got mad. It’s like a soap opera, for God’s sake.”
Most FBI informants are either charged suspects, convicted felons, or undocumented immigrants facing deportation. In return for cooperation, leniency is offered.
Monteilh was a convicted felon. He was involved in ripping off cocaine dealers. He became a Drug Enforcement Administration asset. He later agreed to be an FBI informant.
According to Mother Jones, informants’ “first assignment is often a fishing expedition.” They’ve testified in court that “FBI handlers tasked them with infiltrating mosques without a specific target….”
They’re “directed to surveil law-abiding Americans with no indication of criminal intent.”
They’re told to infiltrate mosques without probable cause. They look for likely targets to entrap. Muslims are America’s target of choice. Innocence is no defense.
Guilt by accusation works. Prosecutors claim another war on terror victory. Innocent people suffer.
Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaeve is Washington’s latest victim. Media scoundrels convicted him in the court of public opinion. Authorities claim he confessed. His last Facebook message said:
“This will be the last message before the police get me. I never ‘done’ it. They set me up. Father please forgive me. I am sorry it has come to this.”
It bears repeating. Innocence is no defense. Lies substitute for truth. Imperial priorities matter most.
America’s war on terror shows no mercy. It’s institutionalized. Everyone’s harmed. Freedom is fast disappearing.
America’s war on humanity continues. Full-blown tyranny looms.

Boston bombing suspect was unarmed when shot by police despite early claims
US authorities have admitted that the second Boston Marathon bombing suspect shot and severely injured by police gunfire just before his arrest was unarmed, disputing earlier official claims that he was heavily armed and fired shots from the boat in which he was hiding.
Accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, “had no firearms” when he came under a barrage of police gunfire, despite statements by police officials following his capture that “he had fired from the boat” and that he was “captured with several weapons,” The Washington Postreported Thursday citing “multiple federal law enforcement officials.”
There were also reports that the gunshot wound the 19-year-old suspect suffered to his throat may have been “an attempt to kill himself as police moved in,” the report adds.
Moreover, despite claims by the US authorities that they “were desperate to capture” Tsarnaev to question him, the FBI has refused to explain what prompted the massive police gunfire, which has now been blamed for striking and injuring a police officer, in spite of earlier suggestions that he was shot by the suspect during a gunfire exchange with police, according to the daily.
Justifying the shooting of the unarmed suspect, however, another law enforcement official is quoted as saying, “You can’t second-guess what they were doing on that scene. Their own lives were in danger.”
Other local press reports have described the scene of police shooting just before Tsarnaev’s capture as “a war zone,” citing residents ofnearby houses who witnessed the unfolding events out of their homewindows.
The development comes as a US state lawmaker recently blamed the American government for the Boston Marathon bombings, describing it as a “Black Ops terrorist attack.”
Republican New Hampshire state legislator Stella Tremblay said on April 19 that the twin bombings in Boston, which killed three and wounded over 250 individuals, and the subsequent hunt for suspects was a plot by the US federal government.
Describing the official account of the events surrounding the twin bombings as suspicious, Tremblay accused the Obama administrationof bombarding innocent people with “drone and now terrorist attacks.”
“Sad day, but a wake up to all of us,” she added.
“One suspect killed, the other one will be too before they even have a chance to speak…First there was a suspect then there wasn’t,” said Tremblay.
Meanwhile, Tsarnaev continues to be treated at a Boston hospital, where his condition has been upgraded from critical to fair. He began communicating in writing and some speech with a special team of FBI interrogators Saturday night and was officially charged on Monday while on a hospital bed.
This while the US Vice President Joe Biden denounced Tsarnaev and his dead brother as “two twisted, perverted, cowardly knockoff jihadis” at a Wednesday event honoring an MIT Campus police officer killed during a reported gunfire exchange with the bombing suspects.
The Islamophobic rhetoric used by the top American official reflects the highly prejudiced attitude of senior American authorities in their continuing efforts to investigate the terrorist bombings at the BostonMarathon.
Concerning those who continue to mouth off about how everyone should be loyal to our government, ignore them, they believe what they don’t know, and the threat of hell won’t change them.
They are STUPID!

I have no personal experience in the business of false flag terrorism, but I imagine that engineering a successfully staged terror attack to be blamed on innocent or semi-innocent parties with the goal of psychologically manipulating a population requires that one also be an accomplished storyteller. It demands an avid imagination and an organized sense of foresight. And, most of all, it requires a consistency of narrative. Without consistency, the audience’s ability to suspend its disbelief is damaged, and they become disconnected from the fantasy being portrayed.
If I were the “writer” behind the “story” of the Boston Marathon Bombing, I would consider my efforts an abject failure.
The narrative of the event has changed multiple times in only a few days, following a hailstorm of conflicting observations from the government and the establishment-run media. The “villain” of the original plotline was clearly meant to be “rightwing extremism” as numerous mainstream talking heads, led by federal agency inferences, began repeating the “homegrown right wing terrorist” meme everywhere. This meme was partly abandoned after the alternative media and the Liberty Movement began its own investigation, revealing a large federal presence on the scene, including military Civil Support Teams often tied to the DHS and NORTHCOM, as well as the witnesses who observed what on-scene officials called “training exercises” during the marathon. I have no doubt that these citizen investigations forced the establishment to change the direction of their crime tale, and use Plan B patsies instead. This, however, complicated the momentum of the fiction, and created even more questions.
The Chechen brothers now implicated in the attack have been revealed as long time FBI contacts. This is a bit awkward for the FBI considering they asked the American public to help them “identify the suspects in on-scene photos” while they failed to mention that they knew EXACTLY who the two young men were already (this is what we might call a contrived story arch). Today, the older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is conveniently dead. The younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, had his throat conveniently shot out. The feds are now supplying the media with “written confessions” from Dzhokhar to which there is no proof of legitimacy. For all we know the boy hasn’t written a word.
The new “villains” get no voice in this drama, and thus become two dimensional characters. They exist so that we can hate them. Understanding them, or hearing their side of events from their own lips, is certainly out of the question. Poorly fleshed out antagonists are a sure sign of a poorly constructed story.
Finally, we get to the “heroes”. Though the criminal elements of our federal government and adjoining alphabet agencies did not yet get the right wing patriot patsy they obviously wanted, they have still so far gleaned considerable social capital from the bombings. The point of a false flag is to frighten the population of any given nation into relinquishing freedom in the name of safety, which in the process gives the central government even more control. In the wake of the Boston attack, the establishment is having a field day….
Martial Law Conditioning
For a few days, Boston became an Orwellian nightmare. The city lockdown and subsequent militarization was swift, though any intelligent and guilty suspect could have easily left the area before hand. This kind of response to catch only two supposed perpetrators is outlandish, unless you understand that it was not about catching the bombers. Rather, it was an exercise designed to test the malleability of the American people during a crisis scenario. In Watertown, residents were not only forced into lockdown; they were also subjected to house-to-house searches without warrant, pat downs, and numerous other violations of their 4th Amendment rights. Take note that almost everything you see in the video below is an illegal and unconstitutional action on the part of Boston authorities:
As this was occurring, officials were consistently pushing media cameras away from the area in the name of “safety”, even though media cameramen are sent into domestic shootouts and foreign warzones on a regular basis. The only real purpose that I can see to removing them from the scene was to reduce the amount of video footage depicting these illegal searches and seizures:
For those who can’t grasp what has happened here, let me explain; the dynamics of liberty have just been erased. This kind of behavior on the part of government will not be limited to disasters like Boston, or New Orleans during Katrina; a precedence is being set to use martial law-style tactics anywhere for any reason at anytime. The “national security argument” is being used as a free license to institute any measure regardless of law to achieve a particular combat objective. The environment we saw in the dark days of Boston is an environment we’ll soon see all over the country, and here is why…
Boston represents a clear escalation of the use of NDAA and martial law measures in the aftermath of a security event. After the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2012, his Miranda Rights under the Constitution were denied due to “extraneous circumstances of national security”. Numerous lawmakers called for the suspect to be treated as an “enemy combatant” so that he could be interrogated under the laws of war without due process: (Source)
The Obama White House has cleverly called for a civilian trial of Tsarnaev in order to reduce criticisms of its support for numerous unconstitutional measures, including the NDAA and the use of assassination against American citizens. The White House has always claimed that it would not use the combatant provisions against American citizens, but has never denied that those provisions could be applied to us. The idea is that while the president does have these powers at his disposal, we’re supposed to have “faith” that he will not abuse them.
During the debate over the passage of the NDAA, Obama opposed certain language within the legislation that REQUIRED him to treat accused domestic terrorists as enemy combatants, not because he thought it was wrong, or unconstitutional, but because he wanted the OPTION to decide whether he would or would not black bag a citizen and throw him into an unspecified hole. He has simply exercised his “option” for a citizen trial, at least this time around…
In the meantime, a simultaneous and so far poorly verified “train attack” has been averted in Canada, opening the door for more discussion on something the establishment has been trying to squeeze out of the populace for years: consent for the federalized lockdown of travel and public events. Whether through TSA, or the use of state authorities under the watch of the DHS, the government has been desperately clamoring to expand the control grid out of airports and federal buildings into the bus stations, subways, trains, highways and sidewalks of America: (Source)
I believe that we will soon see much greater presence of TSA VIPR teams at large public arenas and in transportation venues outside of airports, and that the Boston Bombing will be used as a primer for this expansion. Recent comments by NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg only reinforce my belief. Bloomberg, in reference to the marathon attack, stated that:
…we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.
Look, we live in a very dangerous world. We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms. New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody else after the terrible tragedy of 9/11…
We have to understand that in the world going forward, we’re going to have more cameras and that kind of stuff. That’s good in some sense, but it’s different from what we are used to…
Ironically, the only enemy out there that appears ready to “take our freedoms away” are men like Bloomberg; snakes in the grass that pay lip service to the Constitution while constantly trying to undermine it.
Free Speech Is Next
The bombings in Boston took place, apparently by coincidence, just before Oath Keepers, a national organization of current serving military, police officers, and veterans promoting adherence to their constitutional oath was to hold a large rally at Lexington Green. The Lexington Green board, one member of which had been openly hostile to Oath Keepers in the past, decided to use the crisis as an excuse to deny the rally permit already attained by the liberty minded group.
The Lexington Selectmen claimed that under the suggestions of “state officials” the rally had to be cancelled due to the “lack of police” available to secure the area and ensure public safety. However, when Oath Keepers held a brief oath ceremony at the Green in protest of the decision, a police force was sent to watch them: (Source)
This means that public safety was not the issue. Rather, safety and security were being used yet again to deny a constitutional right, and this time it was the most vital and valuable right of all – free speech.
During the height of the civil rights marches of the '50s and '60s, the exact same tactics were used to silence dissent. Black protesters were told that they could not obtain proper permits for peaceful marches because their “own safety” and the safety of the public could not be ensured. This matter of using broad hypothetical dangers as a catalyst for censorship was finally argued before the Supreme Court in Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham. The court sided with the protesters pointing out that the use of undefined safety concerns and “prior restraint” to silence speech was unconstitutional. Unfortunately, the decision has not prevented the U.S. government from slowly undermining public protest rights ever since.
The fascinating thing about incremental tyranny is the way in which naïve members of our society try to rationalize it. They debate using logical fallacies like:
How have your rights been violated in particular? If your rights haven’t been violated, what right do you have to complain?
And how about this gem…
Yeah, there are problems in this country, but at least we have some freedom. In many countries, you wouldn’t be allowed to complain the way you are…
This is statist psychology at work. Freedom, in their minds, is a privilege doled out by governments, rather than an inborn attribute outside of the realm of law. They do not understand that the violation of the rights of one American is a violation of the rights of ALL Americans. They do not understand that the destruction of some constitutional protections will one day lead to the destruction of ALL constitutional protections.
The establishment and the useful idiots they manipulate want to make the “threat” the center of attention, but ultimately, the threat is irrelevant. There will always be the danger of terrorism and death. Always! And, if our government is following the Operation Gladio false flag model (look it up, folks, it was openly admitted government funded terrorism), as I believe they are, then we can count on Boston-style bombings all over the U.S. very soon.
True crisis lay in what we refuse to see, and the greatest crisis today is not the bombing of a marathon, but the destruction of our freedoms in the name of “security”. The bottom line? Our civil liberties are not up for compromise. Period. Shootings, bombs, nukes, nothing! There is no rationalization that will ever make tyranny a moral enterprise. I, like many other Americans, do not care what boogeyman fantasy is paraded in front of me. We are not frightened, and we are not ignorant. No attack, no matter how heinous, will ever convince us to hand over our freedom.

In the absolutely catastrophic environment of my youth, not even the most frightening nightmare prepared me to envision what America has devolved into. The education and media industry had already taken control of my impression of America, and I was convinced we were the hero’s of freedom, and mercy for the less fortunate. What a shock to compare present day America to the forties and fifties. Back then I was convinced that our government was staffed with the best that humanity had to offer, and everyone in uniform of any kind were hero’s and protectors of everything good and lawful.
Now, DC is a putrid cesspool of everything decadent in humanity, and the men in uniform are content to be feared instead of admired. What ever happened to Mom and Pop American, who would surely die before bowing down to tyranny? Today, America seems willing to kiss ass and hide in their obsessive compulsive life styles, and freedom can go to hell. As long as they can afford their luxuries, and hide from reality, they could care less about freedom, and unalienable God given rights, as everything is subject to change and negotiation.
I am speaking here of the majority, not the loyal patriots who are risking all to bring our wayward countrymen back to protectors of freedom and the less fortunate. The internet reformation is the last stand in America, and if we do not succeed in awaking the fury needed to stimulate the people, all will be lost forever. If someone could paint a picture of the horrors awaiting us, I wonder if it would awaken the dull and ignorant from their intellectual coma. Those of us who are awake almost feel like foreigners in a land of conquered zombies, but, as Brandon has said above, “We are not frightened, and we are not ignorant. No attack, no matter how heinous, will ever convince us to hand over our freedom.”
WAKE THE HELL UP

This is deeply disturbing and could cause a run on gold out of banks. If you have gold, you are a cautious person and you are not going to want your gold somewhere where you can't get it during an emergency.
King World News reports:
Today legendary trader Jim Sinclair stunned King World News when he revealed that a dear friend of his who is very affluent just had a Swiss bank refuse to return his large hoard of gold when he asked for it out of an allocated account. Below is what Sinclair, who was once called on by former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker to assist during a Wall Street crisis, had to say in this remarkable and candid interview.
Eric King: “Maguire spoke on KWN yesterday about the fact that one of his clients went to the LBMA to get the metal from them and could not get it. They told him he would be cash settled. This is what you have been talking about is the failure of the physical markets.”
Sinclair: “A person that I know with significant deposits in one of the primary Swiss banks, in allocated gold, wanted to take out his gold and was just refused on the basis of directives from the central bank….
“They told him the amount was in excess of 200,000 Swiss francs and the central bank had instructed them not to do it because it has to do with anti-terrorism and anti-money laundering precautions.
I really wonder whether those are precautions or whether the gold simply isn’t there. Now you tell me that a London delivery has basically failed. It has to raise our suspicions that the lack of physical gold behind the paper gold is literally so severe that we are coming to understand that it is in fact not there.
The gold that people think is stored is not stored, and the inventory of the warehouses for exchanges may not be holding deliverable gold. There has always been speculation about whether or not the physical gold the US claims to store is in fact in those vaults.
The greatest train robbery in history might be all of the gold, and it would only be something like we have described above that would happen right before gold makes historic highs.
There simply is no gold behind the paper. One example is AMRO, a second is your example with Maguire, and a third is my dear friend who was refused his gold on the basis that its value was too high. Remember this friend of mine had his gold in an allocated account in storage at a major Swiss bank. I repeat, there is no gold.”
Given what just occurred in Cyprus and now this report, it should be clear that money, including gold, must be kept outside the system. The government money grab is on. Bitcoins are not safe. The government will eventually close down the bitcoin exchanges. At this point, money that it isn't buried in your backyard is vulnerable to the government grab .
What will it take for the people to wake up? OUR GOVERNMENT IS NOT LEGITIMATE. It is a de facto government of the International Banking Cartel ruling by force only, not constitutional law. The Federal Reserve is the stud duck of global banking and they will steal our money in every form to render us powerless to resist, and powerless to exist. If you have any, bury your money in gold or silver form before it’s too late.
American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin Sales Suspended; U.S. Inventory Depleted
Now do you believe me?
How about Simon Black, from the SovereignMan.com
When you've got a guy like Senator John McCain who says "The battlefield is the United States of America," it tells you that almost nothing is safe in the Land of the Free.
Whatever remains of civil liberties is going to feel the full brunt of the state's boot heel.
They're already regulating some of the most fundamental aspects of life, from how we are allowed to educate our children to what we can / cannot put in our bodies to the very nature of money.
People are forced to hold their savings in insolvent banks backed by insolvent insurance funds backed by insolvent governments. And those insolvent governments have demonstrated that they are perfectly willing to directly confiscate accounts.
Retirement funds have proven to be an easy, tempting target. A number of countries including Argentina, Ireland, and Hungary have appropriated private pensions. Even the US government temporarily dipped into federal employee pensions.
Western governments are making every possible effort to take over the Internet. Despite every previous attempt (SOPA, PIPA, etc.) failing due to public outcry, they keep trying and trying (ACTA, CISPA, etc.).
They're raising taxes, creating new ones (including Maryland's new 'rain tax'), imposing capital controls, racking up debt, and rapidly devaluing their currencies.
It all reeks of desperation… and it's all so obvious. At least, for anyone paying attention.
Unfortunately it's easy to lose sight of the truth. After all, how can there be any economic problems when the stock market is at an 'all-time high' and Nobel Prize winning pseudo-scientists tell us that debt levels don't matter?
Truth is, these enormous challenges shouldn't be ignored. The entire global financial system is sitting on a bed of dynamite. Central bankers are dousing the pile with gasoline while politicians are standing around smoking.
The potential for epic disaster cannot be understated.
This is not to say that the world is coming to an end. Far from it. History is quite generous with past example of once-great civilizations that collapsed under the weight of their own hubristic debt.
Things didn't end. They changed. Simple. And that's what's happening now in a textbook fashion.
Governments in trouble almost ALWAYS resort to the same destructive tactics. When things are clearly on the decline, rather than INCREASING freedom and opportunity, they try to control EVERYTHING.
We're already seeing the early stages of this with competitive devaluation, basic capital controls, and bank withdrawal limits.
These will soon give way to wider capital controls, increased border controls, wage and price controls, asset confiscation, and more.
It only delays the inevitable. The more they control, the more rapid the deterioration becomes. Again, this isn't some sensationalist prediction; it is the very common historical trend.
The other thing that history shows us, however, is that there are always a handful of people who see the writing on the wall and take action. And that action has almost universally involved looking abroad and diversifying internationally.
This is a time-tested strategy that was once available only to the wealthy landed class. But with modern air transport, digital communication, and global competition, solutions are now available to just about anyone.
I'll be honest with you– moving one's assets, business, and even family overseas isn't easy. These are complicated topics with numerous tax, financial, and professional implications. So go carefully and rationally.
But when structured properly, history shows that a well-informed offshore strategy can have a generational impact should chaos ensue.
And, should nothing ever go wrong in the world, you won't be worse off for it.

IGNORANCE IS VOLUNTARY!
April 23rd, 2013 by olddog
The airwaves are still blanketed with coverage of the Boston bombings, with some in the media morbidly displaying pictures of the young suspects, battered, bloodied, dead and hurt. There was dancing in the streets simultaneous with the capture of the second alleged teen terrorist.
I understand the jubilant relief of the Boston people; they can now try to return to some semblance of normalcy. But one terror act has heavily overshadowed another. At least 15 people were killed and over 150 were injured in the massive explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas, on Wednesday. First responders are among the dead, but the media has virtually ignored that carnage.
I Day Before Boston Bomb & Texas Missile Attack: CIA, Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr., & Barack Obama Indicted By Congressional “Constitutional Task Force” For Crimes Against Humanity!

Waco Texas Fertilizer Company Hit By Drone/Laser Strike After Lawsuit Filed Against Monsanto!
Daily wall-to-wall “terror experts” dissect, analyze and expound on the evil, the dangers and the psychology of a terrorist. But no talk on the even more dangerous white-collar terrorists sitting in plush offices in corporate America. Those who put huge profits above human safety. Those whose gross negligence cost countless loss of lives and widespread, long-term environmental pollution.
Like Nation of Change aptly put it, the “real terrorists” are the corporate execs who’ve bought government regulators.
Moreover, that corruption which often leads to explosions, oil spillage, toxic chemical leakage, environmental pollution, deaths, terminal illnesses, deadly fires, deformities and more is global, for coporate America exports its kind of terror even more efficiently than the religious and ideological extremists.
Of course the media aren’t eager to expose the deadly negligence; after all, most of our news is controlled by just six giant corporations, which makes conflict of interest an understatement.
So as the small Texas town of West continues to dig out their dead and their homes smolder in rumble around them, the “terrorists” over at the West Fertilizer Co. who purposely violated many laws, are not even mentioned in the news.
Which brings up another bewildering question: Why was this plant, which handled toxic anhydrous ammonia, built in the middle of the town? Why do corporations continue to operate plants with deadly chemicals in residential areas?
West Fertilizer was reportedly built in 1962, and records show that in 2006 the Environmental Protection Agency cited several violations at the plant, namely the lack of a risk plan. A plant which handled highly toxic materials located in the middle of a small town reportedly had no sprinklers, water-deluge systems, blast and firewalls and other safety measures needed.
This kind of unconscionable neglect is rampant throughout the globe. Remember the devastating BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010, the worst in environmental history?
How about oil spills in Africa or in Asia, where oversight is even more lax than in the US and corporations can literally get away with murder, or even worse, wipe out an entire village’s livelihood?
In November 2012, a raging fire that engulfed a factory in Bangladesh killed 112 workers who were making clothes for Walmart and others while being paid shockingly low wages and laboring under abhorrent working conditions. A few months later, another fire killed several more workers. Since 2006, more than 600 workers have reportedly died in factory fires in that country, which is a mecca for outsourcing US labor.
The lack of safety measures is the sole cause of the rising death toll, but this kind of “terrorism” does not strike terror or incite revulsion, anger or mass objection in the media or beyond.
We declare martial law-type security measures in a town, bring in the entire battalion to capture two alleged terrorists, while the white-collar fat cats continue their brand of crime unopposed.
Justice seems to have 50 shades of grey in the US.

Breaking News Explosion in Waco Texas!
In answer to your question about material which may provide answers to some of your questions, you may find some solace in the following two year investigative report on how ‘SUSPECTED’ prisoners were treated contrary to Our United States Constitution that was sworn by Mr. Obama to be upheld while he is in office.
The investigative report about Barack Obama, William Clinton, & George Bush Jr. is the most comprehensive, bipartisan investigation into the detention and treatment of suspected terrorists yet published.
The product of more than two years of research, analysis and deliberation by the Task Force members and staff, it provides the American people with a broad understanding of what is known — and what may still be unknown — about the past and current treatment of suspected terrorists detained by the U.S. government during the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations, and across multiple geographic theatres, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantánamo and the so-called “black sites.”
Lets hope The Congressional Constitutional Task Force Members Are Not added to his “kill list” not so…
I DAY BEFORE BOSTON BOMB & TEXAS MISSILE ATTACK: CIA, BILL CLINTON, GEORGE BUSH JR., & BARACK OBAMA INDICTED BY CONGRESSIONAL “CONSTITUTIONAL TASK FORCE” FOR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY!
I feel terrible sorrow for the people of Waco and the ordeal they are having to cope with. Words cannot even remotely succeed to bring those who lost dear ones any form of comfort or even inspire them at this time to believe they even have a future left when their sense of despair must be beyond imagining and one can only hope that all those who perpetrated this deed are brought to justice.
But how do you fight these corporate fiends? Why has Obama himself not even showed his face in West, whose tragedy in a way is far worse than even Boston’s, when considering the loss of life suffered? And on top of it, when it is clear that these were actions of ruthless corporate criminality, as shown by the tell tale video footage. Not only was there loss of life, homes were destroyed and along with it the futures of many, scarring adults to the depths of their beings while the psychological shock it caused children must surely be the worst and can never be obliterated.
How are ordinary honest Americans going to fight and root out the inhuman corporations behind this hideous act?
Is there any question that supports the possibility that Obama is perhaps a fatally threatened man, completely controlled by the corporate monsters who actually rule the US? Maybe his family too is threatened? Is he forced to be a puppet or face the death or even torture of his daughters and his wife? Is he wracked and torn apart inside by what he has been forced to do to America? Are tears he has cried perhaps genuine, as he is a completely broken human being? I mean he must know that for ordinary citizens the shock of the last few days must be soul wrenching — especially when he knows that he in fact is the cause of the slaughter happening in West and in Boston and maybe all the other events of naked terror such as Sandy Hook and Benghazi, but that he had been helpless to prevent it?
Surely the passionate Barack Obama the World saw during his campaign was not an act? Did he only find out after he won the presidency that he would never be able to fulfill, what seemed at the time, his unbelievably heartfelt and sincere promises to the American People? Is he perhaps hoping desperately that someone in the halls of power of America, who is still honest and incorruptible, would come to realize that Obama is a prisoner – hostage as it were, watched every moment and that somehow, they would come and rescue him and his family?
Nonetheless, when I think it through, I know there are so many holes in the above reasoning. Surely any real American president would have made some plan to rescue his family or himself from such a terrible situation and with his family safely out of the way, would then have had the loyalty to his country and her people to protect and save everything and everyone against her enemies with his life — as the seals laid down their lives in Benghazi!
I pose the above scenarios because I am baffled to the core about Obama’s behavior which one would think he may be afflicted by some rare touch of madness or even possessed by an evil spirit (laughable if it was not so tragic). I am no psychiatrist but God alone knows, this man acts like an automaton; akin to someone whose been “taken over” – does that sound a bit crazy?
I just don’t know, but I so hoped he’d be one of the best president’s in American history – the whole Western world did — saw him as man bringing world peace. I just cannot believe how he can live with the taunts and insults that are thrown at him daily and remain almost unaffected by it?
Maybe I just have not grasped the full picture and that Obama is affected by it, but not as I would hope, as those opposing him just get added to his ‘kill list’ not so…
What to me is so terrible, is that in 1990 when I was there, US citizens would never even have given a thought that these horrifying atrocities would ever hit their home soil – it is the type of things they’d naturally assume only occurred in uncivilized Third World countries far away. Then so much started happening to shatter the American Dream, yet of all, the worst was 9/11 and while all thought it would change their lives forever it did not, as to this day MSM lapdogs report 9/11 as an attack by al qaeda and not the false flag it had been proven to be.
I can only say that I look forward to the day when my inbox pings continually with news that America has been saved and freed from the evil ones bent on destroying her and her people. You are all constantly in my meditation and in those of many all over the Planet.
If I may be so forward, I hope you can compile and present some article which to some extent may provide answers to some of my most burning questions, which may be questions and reasoning others may be asking and wondering about too…
May another Thomas Jefferson be closely placed in the wings to rebuild America….thanks.

Michal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't like the Obama's? Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama's? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture."
The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I've made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama's raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.
I don't like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan's made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama's have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.
I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.
I have a saying, that "the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide." No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.
And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother's death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father's military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel . His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.
I don't like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.
Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.
I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.
As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, "Nero In The White House" – "Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood… Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.
MASSIE FOR PRESIDENT!
DEPORT THE OBAMA'S!

In the first century AD, the Roman Empire was up to its eyeballs in domestic terrorism.
The biggest threat was a tiny Judaic sect known as the Zealots who routinely conducted public attacks, even against other Jews who didn't agree with their views.
This is actually, where the word 'zealot' comes from, and the group constitutes history's first recorded example of terrorism.
The Zealots knew they could never defeat such a vast Empire… at least, not conventionally.
Instead, their chosen tactic was to create chaos and fear. And for a while they were successful.
Rome finally put down the threat in 74 AD with the siege of Masada. But the idea caught on, and 'terrorism' has been with us ever since.
Just in recent days, attacks on civilians have been attempted and/or carried out in Greece, the Philippines, Turkey, Kenya, Taiwan, Iraq, Kosovo, Thailand, Mali, Syria, India, Israel, Nigeria, and the United States.
Here in Indonesia they know a thing or two about domestic terrorism. Over the years, all sorts of religious extremists and separatists waged campaigns in the country.
To draw worldwide attention to their causes, they often conducted attacks specifically against Westerners.
As an example, the JW Marriott Hotel here in Jakarta has been targeted not once, not twice, but three times. Curiously they still have one of the best breakfast buffets in the world…
So what did the Indonesian government do? Why, destroy people's civil liberties, of course!
Detachment 88 is Indonesia's special anti-terrorism task force. And go figure, they're funded by the US government, trained by the CIA, and assisted by US intelligence officers to monitor people's emails, text messages, and phone calls… all under the auspices of 'security'.
(My sense is that the US government is 'field testing' freedom-sucking counterterrorism measures here in Indonesia before bringing them to the homeland…)
After 10-years, suicide bombings are now on the decline, and the government is crediting the measures they've implemented. But this view ignores two obvious points:
1) Indonesia's economy is in remarkably better shape than it was years ago. Tens of millions of people are being lifted into the middle class and seeing their standards of living improve dramatically.
It's amazing what a bit of prosperity can do; it doesn't take much for a young person to realize that having some money and freedom is a better deal than railing against the man and blowing yourself up.
(As an aside, these 50%+ youth unemployment rates in Europe are an epic disaster waiting to happen…)
2) Benjamin Franklin is often quoted as saying that "[t]hose who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
And he did write this, in a letter to the Governor of Pennsylvania in 1755. The statement was made in reference to colonists on the frontier who were in danger.
As usual, the state was getting involved… at a high cost.
But Franklin pointed out in his letter that "in the Midst of [the frontier colonists'] Distresses they themselves do not wish us to go farther…" and that "it is next to impossible to guard effectually an extended Frontier…"
He was right. Ultra-committed separatist groups, extremists, and all-around bad guys can always find a soft target.
Guard the airport and they'll blow up the bus station. Guard the bus station and they'll take out a public park.
Constant security, Para-militarism, and steady erosion of freedom constitute an enormous price to pay for a false sense of safety against bad people.
Franklin knew this. Let's just hope that good people heed his wisdom… and have the same respect for liberty as the frontier colonists he wrote about.
Within limits, domestic terrorism is to be expected in a world so full of different ideologies, and as Simon say’s, it is an historical problem, but what happens when a powerful global force finances such activity for an unknown purpose? An astute American will expect this kind of warfare on the people from our government, and be prepared to thrive in its mist. On the other hand, those fools who worship government will be caught up in the middle, and beg the very people who are killing them for protection. Liberals can expect no mercy from either side!
Fools, why will you die?
Come home to your countrymen, and reclaim
your freedom from big brother.

The Daily Bell
In a SPIEGEL interview, Harvard economist Carmen Reinhart argues governments are incapable of reducing their debts and that central banks are now stepping up to resolve the crisis themselves. In the end, she argues, everyday savers will pay the price. Reinhart: No central bank will admit it is keeping rates low to help governments out of their debt crises. But in fact they are bending over backwards to help governments to finance their deficits. This is nothing new in history. After World War II, there was a long phase in which central banks were subservient to governments. It has only been since the 1970s that they have become politically more independent. The pendulum seems to be swinging back as a result of the financial crisis. – Der Spiegel
Dominant Social Theme: Thank goodness for central banking.
Free-Market Analysis: Der Spiegel interviews Harvard economist Carmen Reinhart who has the novel idea that central banks are acting like the "adults" in the room by cleaning up after spendthrift governments.
"Governments are incapable of reducing their debts and now central banks are stepping in."
Perhaps this argument sounds reasonable to a Martian that has not been following exactly what central banks have been doing and continue to do, but last time we looked we weren't Martian.
The idea that monopoly central bankers are "responsible" and politicians are not seems a spurious question, in our humble view. A pox on both their houses.
Politicians spend money as fast as they can and central bankers work for instrumentalities that facilitate that spending.
A monopoly central bank is built to print money. That is what it is supposed to do. To deny it is to deny that a horse is configured to run, or a tiger to hunt, or an elephant, occasionally, to trample.
Here's some more from this "illuminating" interview:
SPIEGEL: Ms. Reinhart, central banks around the world are flooding the markets with cheap money in order to spur economies and support governments. Are these institutions losing their independence?
Reinhart: No central bank will admit it is keeping rates low to help governments out of their debt crises. But in fact they are bending over backwards to help governments to finance their deficits. This is nothing new in history. After World War II, there was a long phase in which central banks were subservient to governments. It has only been since the 1970s that they have become politically more independent. The pendulum seems to be swinging back as a result of the financial crisis …
SPIEGEL: But the danger of such a central bank policy is already well known: It can lead to high inflation.
Reinhart: True. But it is certainly more difficult for a central banker to raise interest rates with a debt to gross domestic product ratio of over 100 percent than it is when this ratio stands at 39 percent. Therefore, I believe the shift towards less independence of monetary policy is not just a temporary change.
SPIEGEL: As a historian who knows the potential long-term consequences very well, doesn't such short-sighted decision-making frighten you?
Reinhart: I am not opposing this change, I am just stating it. You have to deal with the debt overhang one way or the other because the high debt levels are an impediment to growth, they paralyze the financial system and the credit process. One way to cope with this is to write off part of the debt …
SPIEGEL: In other words: When the inflation rate is higher than the interest rates paid on the markets, the debts shrink as if by magic. The downside, though, is that this applies to the savings of normal people.
Reinhart: The technical term for this is financial repression. After World War II, all countries that had a big debt overhang relied on financial repression to avoid an explicit default. After the war, governments imposed interest rate ceilings for government bonds. Nowadays they have more sophisticated means.
SPIEGEL: … with the consequence that people are going to lose their savings?
Reinhart: No doubt, pensions are screwed.
We learn a lot here in a short period of time. Monopoly central banks as virtual appendages of government are doing what governments are incapable of doing – which is cutting spending and reducing debt.
We also learn this is not new, that in previous generations (and monopoly central banking in Europe has been around for much of the past century) the word for this policy is "repression."
Finally, we learn – inevitably – that people's savings are going to be massively affected by all this deliberate money printing.
We could also sum up these insights differently. First, monopoly central banking is an invitation to spend, as politicians are always aware that central banks stand ready to monetize debt.
Second, central bankers will print money to "stimulate" economies, but if we believe what is said in this interview, a deeper game is played. The stimulus is also aimed at inflating currency, thus reducing the amount of debt that governments owe.
A third insight provided by this interview is that central bankers and politicians really don't care about people's savings in a fiat money economy. The savings that people have are merely fungible pools of money that in aggregate have little or no relationship to policy.
There is, of course, a fourth reason that the interview does NOT mention – and that is monopoly central banking is very effective at enriching those who are closest to it. Fresh money, first issued, is very powerful money that has not suffered the ravages of price inflation.
Even more importantly, central bank money printing creates first booms and then busts, centralizing power further in the hands of those conducting and controlling monetary power.
Monopoly central banking aggravates economic cyclicality, encourages government profligacy, inflates the currency and despoils people's savings and retirements. Additionally, it centralizes power and control in the hands of the few at the expense of the many.
It is incredible in this Internet Era that smart people issue forth from European and American schools of "higher learning" still trying to defend and endorse this degraded system.
Even when its defenders such as Ms. Reinhart provide us with a steady stream of justifications and positive analyses, anyone even remotely aware of central banking functionality must see the negatives outweigh the putative positives.
Are there any benefits to central banking? Only if you believe that price fixing and abuse of monetary power is generally a good thing.
Conclusion: Professor Reinhart no doubt believes she is providing us with a realistic – and in a sense positive – perspective about monopoly central banking. She's fooling herself … but not (these days) so many others.
What does it take for the people to wake up and admit, “this is a them or us situation”? All one has to do is a little reading of central banking history, and the horrible truth will fall on you like a ton of bricks. Common sense would tell one and all, these International Banking Cartels should be exterminated! There are just a few families that have caused the death of hundreds of millions of people, and unknown billions of dollars in asset destruction over the last two hundred years, and their power over governments have come to the point of absolute despotism over all governments. In their pursuit of global dominance, they have constructed a global army of every profession needed to control every human being on earth in one way or another. Either by direct physical force, monetary manipulation, commodities needed to sustain life, or their chemicals and medicine. They poison our atmosphere, food and water, and force our people to accept their vaccines that slowly kill us. And if that’s not enough, they have turned our government into a police state, and voided our constitution. What horrible creatures like this deserve to live? Our education and news media have convinced half of our citizens to accept the slaughter of other Nations citizens by our government just to make them more powerful. So! If we are willing to murder husbands, mothers and children of other countries, and accept that as humane, why not take these scumbags to the crematories? If I had it my way we would throw them in alive and turn on the gas. Never in all of history, has anyone deserved it more than them. Just ten hours of reading will assure you its either them or us, and they are winning! SO FAR! Ask yourself if anyone could possibly be stupid enough to publish this, and expect to stay alive, or free much longer. Living in their world is not hard to give up!
WAKE THE HELL UP, AND DEMAND YOUR FREEDOM!
April 17th, 2013 by olddog
Gun owners all over the country – including law enforcement who take their oath of office seriously – are shocked by the level of attack against the Second Amendment since the horrendous tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school last December.
"Gun control" is chanted a hundred times a day by members of the Democratic/Communist Party USA and their sycophants. The useful fools in print and electronic media, as well as barkers on the boob tube, make sure Americans get daily mega doses of carefully crafted propaganda. The families of children and teachers killed in Newtown have allowed themselves in their profound grief to be used as tools for tyrants and they're very serious about it:
Newtown families: Victims turn lobbyists
"When a lobbyist for families of Newtown shooting victims called the office of Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to set up a meeting, the first response was a standard D.C. offer. They could get a meeting with her staff, and Collins would stop by, they were told. The families’ answer: not good enough. According to their lobbyists, the families have a rule against staff-only meetings: They won't do them. They insist on sitting down with the senators themselves. The families wound up getting more than 15 minutes with Collins.
"That rule is just one of the ways that the Newtown families, political novices just a few months ago, are proving to be savvy, effective advocates as they promote the gun legislation that has finally begun to move through the Senate. The families are well-educated, and many are well-off. They have been polished and sharp on TV. They're mostly non-political, but quite accomplished in their own fields. With access to money and media, they're using persistence, visibility — and, most all, their unique moral authority — to help prod Senate action. They also have their own lobbyists — several of them, in fact."
I won't use the over-used "we cannot imagine their pain". We can't. However, those families have no right to demand the Second Amendment be infringed, altered or amended, period.
For those who might not be familiar with the issue of the Seventeenth Amendment and the point I'm making in this column, here's a short refresher:
When the First Continental Congress was convened via a resolution of the Congress of the Confederation, one of the first issues discussed on May 29, 1787, was the balance of power for a newly created General Government.
The delegates were firm: The American people would be represented by a representative voted into office from lawfully created districts according to population. The states were to be represented in the U.S. Senate by individuals elected by each state legislature.
James Madison, known as the Father of the Constitution wrote: "The Senate will be elected absolutely and exclusively by the State legislatures." John Jay, co-author of The Federalist Papers is quoted: "Jay then informed Governor Clinton that, unlike the Senate, where the two-thirds rule was in force for treaties and impeachment, the lower house had nothing to do with treaties; it represented the people whereas the senate represented the states - for the Federalists always a significant distinction."
The U.S. House of Representatives was to be the legislative body for the people. Each district within the states of the Union would elect an individual to Congress (Art. I, Sec. II) who would represent them under Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution. The framers were adamant that the states remain sovereign entities and have equal representation in Congress. Thus, the U.S. Senate would be comprised of two senators from each state. (Art. I, Sec. III)
Those senators would be elected by their state legislature to go to Washington, DC to represent the interests of the state, not the people. If they didn't, the state could recall them, fire them and hire someone new. The Senate confirms federal judges and supreme court justices. The Senate must advise and consent to ratification of treaties that have been negotiated and agreed to by the President — Art. II, Section II, U.S. Constitution.
The framers of the Constitution wisely understood the absolute necessity of ensuring the people would have the right to vote for our representative in Congress, and at the same time because they all jealously guarded freedom and liberty, the states must also have equal representation. We the people would have the ability to remove – via the ballot box – miscreants and scoundrels, while the state legislatures could recall their U.S. Senators who acted against the best interests of their state. The absolute right of the states to equal representation was wiped out when the Seventeenth Amendment was declared ratified on April 8, 1913. It was not.
The egregious harm done by the U.S. Senate since 1945 could fill several volumes. That body of Congress handles areas that directly affect all of us regardless of political party. During the debate in 2011, for the disaster known as Obamacare, Senator Olympia Snowe [R-ME] stated her constituents wanted Obamacare. Snowe is a progressive socialist. Her vote will have a direct impact on all Texans if our state doesn't nullify, yet Texans could not vote her out of office. Thankfully, Comrade Snowe did not seek re-election in 2012. However, she was replaced by an "independent" who has zero understanding of the Second Amendment, Angus King. His vote will affect my Second Amendment rights and I can't vote him out of office and neither can you unless you live in Maine.
What we've seen with NYC, Colorado and the State of Connecticut isn't gun control. It's a major step towards amending and eventually nullifying the Second Amendment, which no government, state, local or federal has any legal right to do. You couldn't pay me to go to NYC or the State of Connecticut and spend a dime.
Colorado's major population centers like Denver and Boulder were long ago taken over by socialists and communists who call themselves liberals or progressive liberals. They infest the state capitol and governor's mansion like the vermin they are in their quest to destroy freedom and liberty. My husband and I lived in Colorado from 1989 – 1997. Leaving was the best thing we did as I would not want to live there now nor will I go out of my way to spend any money in that state. I hope hunters and all Second Amendment supporters call the governor's office out there and tell John Hickenlooper: no conventions, no vacations, no hunting, no snow skiing, only gasoline along the highway as you pass through.
Kudo's to the sheriff's in that state have who taken up the fight: 37 of 62 Colorado sheriffs to sue over new gun laws
The Outlaw Congress has NO constitutional authority to amend or nullify the Second Amendment, but many of them intend to do just that – both parties:

Won't surprise me if the NRA endorses those same turn coats next time they unlawfully come up for reelection. Probably throw a few bushels of money their way from your donations and membership dues, just like the NRA does for Harry Reid. That's why I do not belong to the NRA.
16 Senate Republicans: We Have to Pass the Gun Control Bill to Find Out What's In It
Sound familiar? Obamacare Is the Perfect $17 Trillion Trojan Horse: "Nancy Pelosi said “We must pass Obamacare to find out what's in it.”
Since 2005, Dr. Edwin Vieira has been trying to get gun owners educated about revitalizing the constitutional militia in the states of the Union which will stop all of the above. Here in Texas, we tried to get our legislature – you know, the "Don't Mess With Texas" bunch – to introduce and pass a bill. Isn't going to happen. There has been zero support for my efforts from any gun groups or private militia in the State of Texas.
Boehner: I Don't Need GOP to Pass Gun Law
No More Mr. Nice Guy
"GOA has been issuing multiple alerts recently because of the imminent danger that is facing us – as the Senate will soon be taking up gun control legislation. Much of the focus has been on the Senate. But if anyone thinks that the House – and specifically Speaker John Boehner – is our fail-safe to killing gun control in the Congress, they had better think again. Speaking on Meet the Press on March 10, Speaker Boehner said that he has "made clear if the Senate acts on gun control legislation, the House will consider it." Quite simply, that means that House Speaker John Boehner will allow the House to consider votes on gun control legislation."
Gun Owners of America recently sent out this alert: The Battle Will Take Longer than We'd Hoped: "We've been fighting these gun control battles for almost 40 years now. And we almost always win. But it's almost always a nail-biter. And so it is on Obama's gun control agenda", etc.
Gun Owners of America: Why won't you mobilize your millions of members to demonstrate at the state capitols by the thousands and demand the constitutional militia be revitalized? Isn't 40 years of fighting the same battle an indication what you're doing hasn't brought about the solution, only more Band Aids? What? You afraid the useful fools in the media will excoriate you for supporting the Second Amendment? "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." Non members like me, and I believe, a great majority of Oath Keepers would join you in our respective states.
"Dan Scott. Barely a week ago I heard you rail for two hours about independence. Mr. Hardwick, how many times have I heard you speak of freedom at my father's table? Half the men in this church, including you father, and you, Reverend, are as ardent patriots as I. Will you now, when you are needed most, stop at only words? Is that the sort of men you are? I ask only that you act upon the beliefs of which you have so strongly spoken and in which you so strongly believe." — 17 year old Ann, from the movie, The Patriot
Very well meaning folks don't seem to grasp 'private' militias have no legal authority to do anything other than target practice:
Civilian Militia Expands to 38 States To Protect Constitution
"A citizen militia consisting of law enforcement, military and civilians founded by pro-2nd amendment Police Chief Mark Kessler to protect citizens against an over bearing federal government has now expanded to 38 chapters each in a different state. Formally known as the Constitution Security Force Chief Kessler called upon the creation of a Citizen Reserve force to protect Americans from the ever growing plethora of threats to Life, Liberty and Justice Citizens face from the federal government in the draconian post 9/11 dark times we live in. Chief Kessler proposed legislation to his town of Gilberton, Pennsylvania asserting the right to assert 2nd and 10th amendment rights despite in defiance in any orders coming from the Gestapo thugs in Washington, D.C. taking orders from the notorious Obama regime."
I can only in the strongest possible way urge everyone to read True Vs. False Militia & Why the Difference Matters. Pro Second Amendment advocates, including Police Chief Mark Kessler, must understand the difference and why it's so important.
So, how's ignoring the only real solution working out for gun owners?
Rewarding liars, cheats and thieves — Illegal aliens
The Senate is going to sell us out with another invitation for more millions of illegal aliens to cross the border:
Rubio and Rand Paul's Amnesty Trick Will Lead Conservatives To Their Own Doom!
"America is facing a nation-destroying illegal alien amnesty push from a Congress stocked with high ranking Republicans eager to rubber stamp Obama’s unlawful and unConstitutional amnesty decrees instead of reining the President in from the one party dictatorship he is transitioning America into!
"At the center of this push for Amnesty legislation, some Republicans are acting as a Judas Goat to lead conservatives to their own political doom. Whether you believe their positions are malicious political theater or the result of mistaken beliefs is up to you, but the deadly and destructive results of their actions will be the same if you fall for the Marco Rubio (202-224-3041) and Rand Paul (202-224-4343) amnesty plans. Let me be very clear, Obama’s DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Amnesty memo is not a law. It is not an Executive Order. It is a memo. America is now under a form of governance by memo.
"So while Republicans like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Jeff Flake, Speaker John Boehner, and Eric Cantor rush to rubber stamp Obama’s illegal amnesty memo with actual legislation, they are in fact supporting a new form of authoritarian and dictatorial governance for American citizens. How else can we explain the wide ranging amnesty policies currently being implemented coast to coast, including the release of thousands of illegal aliens from detention centers, including those incarcerated for broader crimes against American citizens, which has no backing in legislation, existing laws, or election outcome other than the race for President?
"States like North Carolina and others that are now giving licenses to illegal aliens, which 77% of Americans oppose according to Rasmussen polling, are responding to Obama’s memo. Not a new law and certainly not an official Executive Order! Did we spend all of that money and time to elect a Congress and Senate that works simply to rubber stamp unlawful decrees from the President instead of representing the American majority that has made it clear they reject any form of amnesty and demand immigration and border enforcement instead?"
Rubio is just another lying politician: Rubio in 2010: I'll never support amnesty – Rarely viewed video includes hard-line pledge against immigration plan
Rubio is one of the stupidly named "gang of eight" senators who are going to sell us out to reward liars, thieves and cheaters. The consequences of this new amnesty will absolutely be the giant nail in our coffin. Illegals will continue to kill this economy, our way of life and those 20+ MILLION will register to vote for the Democratic/Communist Party USA. The Republican Party may as well close their doors. "Gang of Eight": Senators Schumer [DC - Democratic/Communist Party USA], McCain [R}, Durbin [DC], Graham [R], Menendez [DC], Rubio [R], Bennet [DC], and Flake [R]
Senate plan: Deport illegals who arrived after 2011
'People need to have been in the country long enough to have put down some roots'
Wrong. It doesn't matter if they've been here five minutes or 50 years, they have no right to be on U.S. soil. You don't reward liars, cheats and thieves just because they've been doing it a long time. And, no they won't get deported. Members of the Democratic/Communist Party USA and the impostor camped out in the White House will find some way to make sure they stay.
Sen. Jeff Flake: 'We Don't Need a Sealed Border'
Wrong. The destruction by illegal aliens to this country since Ronald Reagan opened the doors to the mass invasion for decades takes your breath away. I'm sure Flake and one very popular Libertarian former judge would get along just fine:
Fox's Judge Napolitano Delights Jon Stewart By Proclaiming 'I'm in Favor of Open Borders'
I know it's true because I just happened to hit the comedy channel while in my hotel room last November. Perhaps someone should remind Napolitano about the 50,000 + Americans who have been slaughtered by illegal aliens since 9/11. About the babies, children and teens raped and/or murdered by illegals. How the terrorists must love him:
Watch this short video: Muslim Terrorists Crossing US/Mexican Border. This is a mainstream network report with documents to back up what they're saying.
Illegal aliens setting fires – border patrol
There is NO way to do background checks on illegals. Not from communist China, Ireland, Guatemala, Mexico or Middle East countries. I can tell you exactly what will happen: Oh, there's not enough money, blah, blah, blah, so we'll fast track them right in time for the 2014 phony elections. Mark my words it's happened in the past and it will happen again.

• Dump 20+ MILLION illegals into Obamacare and the numbers will shoot into the stratosphere:
• Senate Dems Vote To Provide Obamacare To Illegals
• Sex crimes by illegals The ones that haven't been caught are going to be rewarded with amnesty. After one rapes and kills another child, then we'll find out that illegal was here for years.
Tucson Local 2544: ""We will continue to have large groups of illegal aliens chasing Border Patrol agents down so they can be “arrested”, knowing they will be set free and given temporary permission to remain here in the United States (no jail space to keep them locked up until their cases are adjudicated). Once they are set free with a “promise to appear” (wink, wink) 99% of them will disappear and never be heard from again unless they commit some heinous crime. Then, years down the road we will have a new group of politicians and activists screaming about how we need to “bring these people out of the shadows” by giving them amnesty. This is how the merry-go-round works. Proven time and time again over the span of many decades.
"Thank you Secretary Napolitano. Thank you for endangering us. Thank you for cutting our pay 40% to prove a political point. Thank you for making our job even more meaningless. Thank you for releasing thousands of criminal illegal aliens that we risked our lives to arrest and put in jail. Thank you for all your lies about how “secure” the border is so that you can prop up another amnesty program."
Amnesty deal could lead to trillions in new welfare spending
"Senate Budget Committee Republican staff on Thursday released a description of what they claim is a “major flaw” in the immigration reform plan being pushed by the bipartisan “Gang of Eight"–a loophole that will end up being a multi-trillion dollar entitlement spending increase, with the burden falling on American taxpayers. According to what has been publicly reported about the Gang of Eight's forthcoming immigration bill, there appears to be a major flaw that could allow millions of illegal immigrants to access federal welfare benefits and poverty programs,” the GOP Budget Committee staff wrote in a statement to media"
Roughly 11.5 MILLION illegals hold jobs that belong to Americans. 47 MILLION Americans are on food stamps. Good paying construction jobs are being done by illegals for cash under the table while natural born and naturalized Americans in that industry are on food stamps collecting unemployment. Now, we are going to reward those who lie and cheat to steal our jobs?
Rand Paul wants illegals turned into taxpayers. Wrong. You don't reward liars, thieves and cheaters. Rand Paul says we can't deport them. BULL. There is no effort to really crack down on illegals because the shadow government wants seamless borders for the North American Union. The U.S., Canada and Mexico as one region of world government. The major push, Mr. Paul, just in case you missed it, started with NAFTA. Go look at this map. You might also wish to read my column where I explain about the NAU because the traitors are still working it quietly while you're working to put food on the table.
I urge you to keep calling or faxing your U.S. Senatorstarting tomorrow: NO on any gun bills. NO on any "pathway to citizenship" slick marketing. It is amnesty. We want illegals deported, period. Call before you go to work if you live on the West coast. Call on your break or lunch hour, but make those calls and if possible, send a fax. No email. All you get are boiler plate canned replies.
We do NOT need any more traps called immigration "reform." We need enforcement and the states to stop giving perks and free education to illlegals. We need the border sealed and guarded. Tragically for our country, not one of the four border states governors or legislatures have the guts to get the job done. That includes Texas where I live.
Prior to 1913, state legislatures elected two senators to go to Washington, DC to represent the interests of their state and citizens. After the fraud of declaring the Seventeenth Amendment ratified, the mobs now "elect" U.S. Senators who go to Washington, DC and vote for special interests who have bought their favors. They steal the fruits of our labor for all their pet welfare agencies and programs and we have no way to vote them out of office. They vote to keep the grotesque, endless wars in the Middle East funded for nothing. NOT for our freedom.
Like Democratic/Communist Party USA king pin, Chuck Schumer, one of the 'gang of eight". Take the poltroon who "represents" me: "Senator": John Cornyn. There isn't a bill to destroy the Bill of Rights he hasn't loved. Voted yes to extend the abomination called the Patriot Act. Voted yes for indefinite detention of Americans without a trial, NDAA. He's another damn war monger. Votes for every "free" trade bill destroying even more jobs for Americans. He voted for the unconstitutional $700 BILLION (borrowed, more debt on our backs) bank bail outs.
The Seventeenth Amendment was NOT ratified by enough states and I have the iron-clad, court proof evidence. In February 2011, I had a long face to face talk with Rep. Bryan Hughes in our state legislature. I told him I have been working on this for over 15 years. The states cannot reclaim their sovereignty without representation in the U.S. Senate. He was very enthusiastic about getting rid of the Seventeenth Amendment! I spent so much time and money getting him documents waiting for this new session in January 2013, as well as a few others in our legislature. I wrote not only the working paper, but a bill for our legislature to challenge the Seventeenth Amendment (Click her, item 4).
Guess what? There will be absolutely nothing done by our legislature this session which ends May 27, 2013. Rep. Hughes appears to no longer have any interest in protecting the rights of the state he serves or we the people of Texas. Our legislature doesn't return until Jan. 2015. In the meantime, Comrades Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid will continue voting for bills that are destroying our lives and we can't vote them out of office. Thank you very much, Rep. Hughes. "Don't Mess With Texas" is a joke in my opinion.
The U.S. Senate has played a major role in destroying this constitutional republic from confirmation of Supreme Court Justices, federal judges, treaties, Obamacare and now their major push to nullify the Second Amendment and unleash another wave of illegals invading this country. Both parties are guilty.
So, how's the Seventeenth Amendment working out for you?
I guess Texans don't mind Schumer, Reid, Flake, McCain and the rest of those vultures dictating their lives. I guess Americans in the other 49 states don't mind either, because other than a few lonely voices out there, Americans prefer to fight for Band Aids instead of solutions. Of course, there is no money in the cure, only the treatment. Fill up those campaign war chests for the next fake election while we slide down the razor blade of tyranny.

Please make sure all your friends in every State see these names. The vote and the bill is a matter of public record.
Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The Statement of Purpose from the bill read:
“To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S., and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 of our United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
From Senate records- a nay indicates unwillingness to stop the unconstitutional UN treaty:

GOA: The Battle Will Take Longer than We’d Hoped
Posted by: The Publisher on: April 11 2013 • Categorized in: To Keep and Bear Arms
But there’s still a very good chance we can win!
“Gun Owners of America [has] been pressing lawmakers who may have wavered on this emotional issue of background checks.” – CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, April 10, 2013
We’ve been fighting these gun control battles for almost 40 years now. And we almost always win. But it’s almost always a nail-biter.
And so it is on Obama’s gun control agenda.
We’d hoped that we could stop the gun control bribe-o-thon early (and risk-free) by blocking the motion to proceed to the package. But thanks to sell-outs like Pennsylvania’s one-term senator, Pat Toomey, we’re going to have to take a different battle position and defeat the package at a later stage.
The Senate today overcame the Paul-Cruz-Lee filibuster and voted to move to proceed to Harry Reid’s gun control bill (S. 649). Where Reid needed 60 votes, the tally was 68-31. Click here to see if your Senator sold you out by voting to “move to proceed” to the bill.
Republican defectors who voted anti-gun were: Alexander (TN), Ayotte (NH), Burr (NC), Chambliss (GA), Collins (ME), Corker (TN), Coburn (OK), Flake (AZ), Isakson (GA), McCain (AZ), Heller (NV), Hoeven (ND), Kirk (IL), Graham (SC), Toomey (PA) and Wicker (MS).
So, here’s where we are. Right after the Senate proceeded to the gun control bill, Harry Reid used his privileged recognition to put a bunch of amendments in place. In Senate parlance, they are referred to as an “amendment tree;” and they contain the universal registry bill, the Feinstein gun ban, and the magazine ban. These will be voted on in upcoming days.
As for the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer universal registry bill, don’t believe the press’ efforts to sugar-coat it. If you have ever had an “Internet … posting” on (or related to) your gun, you can sell it only by going to a dealer and filling out a 4473 and getting the government’s approval. Only a cave man would be exempt.
And once you have a 4473? Well, the ATF is going from dealer to dealer, copying the information on these forms, and feeding it into a database. But, says Toomey, he’s against universal registries. This is where it would have helped if Toomey had consulted someone who knew something about guns.
Registration and violation of privacy.
First of all, Toomey’s anti-registry language prohibits photocopying the 4473′s, but it doesn’t prohibit going into the FFL with a laptop and copying all the information. Second, ATF takes the position that the data it’s accumulating in a database is not a “registry,” so Toomey’s ban does no good. Third, guess what the sanction is for violation of Toomey’s anti-registry language? Answer: Eric Holder has to choose to prosecute himself and his own department.
But this isn’t the only bad thing about Toomey-Manchin-Schumer.
Section 107 of the sell-out also waives any federal privacy prohibitions under HIPAA to sending the names of Americans with PTSD, ADHD, and post partem depression to the gun ban database. But that’s not all.
Believe in Jesus, hand in your guns?
Because private shrinks will be able to add patients names into a federal database of the mentally ill – without due process – you will be at their mercy.
As Red State editor, Erick Erickson says, “Activist mental health providers will probably be overly aggressive in adding people to the list. Give it five years in liberal areas and people who believe in the physical resurrection of Christ will probably get automatic entry onto the list.”
And as for veterans? Toomey-Manchin-Schumer reinforces the proposition that bureaucrats in the Department of Veterans Affairs can take away veterans’ rights without any due process. If a veteran has $30,000 to spend getting back the rights Toomey-Manchin-Schumer wrongly took from him, the sell-out creates yet another redundant money-trap for restoration of rights that shouldn’t have been taken away in the first place.
Repealing gun owner protections.
What if you want to travel across the country? McClure-Volkmer allowed you to do that with an unloaded gun in the trunk (18 U.S.C. 926A). But, under the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer sell-out, unless you can “demonstrate,” to the satisfaction of the New York police (1) where you came from, (2) where you’re going, (3) that you’re legally entitled to possess the gun in the place you can from, and (4) that you’re legally entitled to possess the gun in the place you’re going, they will arrest you in New York.
The Toomey-Manchin-Schumer (Charles Schumer, Carries Concealed) sell-out creates a Biden-like commission to insure that the cries for gun control continue. http://www.federalobserver.com/archive.php?aid=10104
Like sprinkles on a pile of dung, Toomey and Schumer steal some of the proposals we drafted and try to use them to get us to buy onto gun control. But it won’t work.
The gun movement is united against this disgusting pile of gun control.
Here is the new battlefield. Because of the Senate rules, many of the upcoming gun control votes will need 60 (out of 100 votes) to move forward. That will almost certainly be the case with the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer proposal. And because the entire Second amendment movement – GOA, NRA, etc. – is against the Toomey language, it virtually ensures his amendment will fail.
And if Toomey-Manchin-Schumer doesn’t pass, then Reid probably won’t have enough votes to overcome a second filibuster on the bill – as it would contain the original anti-gun language sponsored by Reid and Schumer. This all but guarantees that the legislation would die, as Republicans and a half-a-dozen Democrat Senators would then team up to keep the bill from getting the required 60 votes.
One last question or thought: Did we waste our time supporting the Paul-Cruz-Lee filibuster and fighting the motion to proceed? No, because we forced Obama to fire most of his ammunition, as he dragged his human props around Washington in an effort to exploit them for political gain.
If Obama had been able to wait to play this card until Toomey-Manchin-Schumer came up for a vote, that vote would be a lot harder for us to win.
But Obama has already played this card for his “they deserve a vote” theme. Okay, they’re getting their vote. But by the time we reach the vote on cloture on Toomey-Manchin-Schumer, Obama’s exploitation of the victims of Newtown will begin to be realized for the cynical exploitative political ploy that it is. And he will be less able to shift gears and use the victims for the theme “They deserve a ‘yes’ vote.”
Second Amendment Hypocrites: Senators Schumer and Feinstein Pack Heat
By Jim Kouri, CPP
A recent poll conducted by the National Association of Chiefs of Police indicated that almost 64 percent of police commanders and sheriffs favor a law allowing private citizens to carry concealed firearms for protection. Almost 73 percent said that citizens should not be restricted from purchasing more than one weapon, and 96 percent say they believe criminals obtain firearms from illegal sources.
Unfortunately most states – especially those called Blue States due to their Liberal-leanings – continue to prohibit private citizens from carrying concealed handguns.
At the same time, there are outspoken opponents of gun ownership, such as Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Diane Feinstein (D-CA), who are carrying concealed weapons, according to WABC Radio's Mark Levin. Levin, a recognized constitutional expert, heads the Landmark Legal Foundation. The LLF's goal is to protect American's from unreasonable and illegal government intrusions and violations of the US Constitution, including the Second Amendment.
The mainstream news media have been aware that several antigun proponents are carrying concealed firearms but have failed to expose this hypocrisy. This writer's efforts to discover how many other anti-gunners are also packing heat – a right they wish to deny other citizens – met with limited results.
Not only does Schumer carry a handgun, the New York City Police Department also provides armed escorts for the good senator. In fact, the Government Accounting Office — the investigative arm of the US Congress — slammed Schumer's use of police resources for personal protection. It's clear that Schumer believes he's special. He wishes to ban private citizens' ownership of firearms, while he enjoys layers of protection.
"No wonder Chuckie Schumer shoots his mouth off so much – he's able to protect himself," says a 25-year police veteran.
Also, a check of Pistol License records shows that Senator Schumer possesses an "unrestricted" pistol permit, a rarity in New York City. Licenses are distributed in different categories in the Big Apple: Target Permits allow only use of a firearm at a licensed firing range; Premises Permits allow weapons to be kept in a home or apartment; Restricted Permits allow the gunowner to carry their firearms concealed but only within the purview of their job (security, jewelers, armored car guards, etc.). So it's evident that Senator Schumer has two sets of rules — one for Americans and one for himself.
And then we have Senator Diane Feinstein on the Left Coast who possesses something more rare than a conservative Republican in San Francisco – an unrestricted concealed weapons permit. Apparently without shame, she participated in a citywide gun turn-in program that was intended to create some kind of statue from the donated guns that were to be melted down. One of her police body guards let it slip that she contributed a cheap model for the meltdown, while retaining her .357 magnum revolver for her own personal self-defense.
Hypocrisy is not limited to politicians when it comes to the Second Amendment. For Example, well-known Washington-based columnist, Carl Rowan, often wrote about the ills of firearms ownership. Until, that is, he shot and wounded a teenager who trespassed on his property. The white teenaged boy claimed he wanted to try Rowan's swimming pool. Rowan, an African-American, retaliated with deadly force using a firearm. That's when the news came out that Carl Rowan, gun-control advocate, actually possessed a license to own firearms.
Another example is the loudmouth entertainer, Rosie O'Donnell, who once ran roughshod over conservative actor Tom Selleck because of his stance supporting the Second Amendment. Although Ms. O'Donnell doesn't carry a gun, she has three armed bodyguards who protect her, her wife and her children, something the vast majority of hardworking Americans could never afford. Isn't it comforting to know all these Liberals are looking out for us?

If I had the opportunity to address the parents of the Sandy Hook School shooting, and the supporters of more gun control laws, the first thing I would do is ask them
WHAT PART OF “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?
Has your grief completely over-powered your mind? Do you not see how much authority the federal government has stolen from the people already? Do you really want the federal government to have the last word on the people being able to defend their country from a tyrannical federal government? Are you blind to the loss of liberty that has already occurred in America?
Are you willing to watch your country descend into another civil war because of your personal grief? Do you really believe the government’s firepower will defeat the majority of the people who will fight them to a stand still? Do you really want the politicians to be afraid to come out of hiding for the rest of their life? Don’t you understand that this tragedy was most likely a black opps. operation by your government to stimulate the dull and ignorant into believing gun control will prevent future loss of life? Don’t you understand that this is going to result in an attempt to disarm the people and leave them helpless to defend themselves and their families, as has been done so many times by other governments? Were your children’s lives worth more than the hundreds of thousands of lives’ that will be lost when the government tries to disarm America? Is a nation of managed servants what you really want? Have you no idea what life will be like when the government is no longer afraid of the people? In the first place, why were your children in a public school if it is not because of your manipulated word view? Do you not see what public education has done to this country? My dear grieving parents, why do you want the government to continue manipulating the minds of innocent children, when the cause of liberty is being destroyed there? Have you forgotten how your minds were manipulated in public education? Why were you so trusting of an organization that has failed it’s stated purpose for generations? Was it because it is the cheapest baby sitting service available? If public education is the safest place to have your children protected, why is it not working? Did a gun destroy the mind of some whacko, and convince him to murder little children? Dear parents, why did you not know you were sending your children into a dangerous environment? Why are you unaware that the social manipulation in public schools is directly responsible for creating uncontrollable rage in the minds of many children? Why didn’t you, like most observant parents, notice a change in your child’s attitude after the first year of public education? Did you think that change was a normal thing in children? Why are you so anxious to place the blame of your failure on a man made object, when that object is the most indispensible tool left to protect our nation?
Why have you abandoned the principle, that adherence to a set of immutable principle’s is the only way to control governments world over? Why do you put your confidence in humanity’s ability to adapt to new challenges, over time-tested methods of controlling excessive permissiveness, and excessive control? Why do you not see the limitations placed on humanity by excessive government control?
If public education made you so smart, why are you so intellectually limited, that you believe more government control will make life better, or safer?
Why are you so willing to give up the freedom that so many Americans died to preserve? Is it because you hate guns, or is it because you are afraid to defend freedom? In the first place, why would you hate guns when they have been the only thing that our past Americans had to gain their freedom? How can you be so ignorant to believe any nation would be safe without guns? Do you really believe a defenseless nation would be a safer nation? Why are you ignorant of the fact that freedom of choice is the only way to identify those who have lost self-control, or have evil natures and plan to do more evil? Have the lies you were taught in public education and the media industry convinced you that the world would be a safer place if the governments were unconstrained like ours presently is?
Why are you unaware of and not infuriated over, the governments claims that your children really belonged to the government, and you were held responsible for them? Why are you so willing to let an unconstrained government rule this nation, or why do you think it will not be unconstrained if you want it to control your every minute of life? How can you believe the government will feel responsible to us, if we let it rule our very existence?
Let me remind you that, better/smarter men than you, declared that, the right of the people to be armed SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED, and your personal tragedy is not sufficient reason to change that. If you want the loss of your dead children lives to be remembered forever, let their loss be the reason the government forever honors our God given right to remain armed. Self-defense is a God given right, and having guns is how we preserve it. Unconstrained governance, and government-controlled education, are the greatest evils the world has ever known.
In closing, let it be known that you are now responsible to the whole world for making it cognizant of the real reason for the consistent loss of liberty, and the rise of submissiveness in the people. It is because the government is hiding and protecting the International Investment Bankers who are really controlling our governments and taking control of the world’s resources. Since you have been manipulated into believing it is permissible for the government to manipulate the minds of our children into preemptive wars being an acceptable excuse to kill innocent children and their parents, why don’t you support the complete elimination of these Bankers forever, and protecting the lives of billions of people in the future? That, my dear parents is what will immortalize the loss of your children! Make your terrible loss the reason for the return of sanity, and self-responsibility, in the whole world. Killing the banksters would be like removing a thorn from an infected wound. The whole world would heal.
If anyone thinks this article is obscenely insensitive towards people suffering inconsolable grief, let it be known that governments all over the world, including America, and throughout history have murdered millions of people in order to establish governance by force, and if that does not offend you, then go to hell. Mass murder is always relative to the numbers involved, and hundreds of thousands of Americans dying defending their freedom is by far much worse than twenty children dying for no other reason than pleasing a putrid media industry. If you simply cannot accept the government’s involvement in this tragedy, you have not been paying attention to their modus operandi. Direct your rage where it belongs, and demand the end of central banking by the international banking cartel. They are the rotten bastards, who profit from and proliferate human depravity.
