David Cameron: world on brink of new economic crisis … The world stands on the brink of a new economic crisis that would leave countries like Britain "staring down the barrel," David Cameron has warned … David Cameron said that Western politicians must show more 'leadership.' …The Prime Minister said that the failure of leaders in the US and Europe to tackle government deficits now "threatens the stability of the world economy." – UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: The economic crisis is grave indeed. Perhaps what is needed is a new currency.
Free-Market Analysis: David Cameron joined a number of other prominent leaders in warning about the perilous state of the West's and the world's economy. At the same time, we learn, French President Nicolas Sarkozy is pushing US President Barack Obama to support adding the Chinese yuan to the IMF's SDR basket. SDRs have been suggested as a potential new, global currency that could take over from the sputtering dollar.
Something certainly needs to be done, we are told. The economic news is grim and Cameron's speech was triggered by yesterday's market drop, which saw stocks fall around the world. The FTSE-100 took its biggest drop in more than two years. The Dow was down some four percent. The West's largest economies are toppling back into recession, according to Cameron and others.
What does Cameron want? The Telegraph article tells us he spoke in Canada, "after delivering a blunt warning to President Barack Obama and eurozone leaders about the need to follow Britain's example and curb their deficits."
So perhaps, in part, this is about more "austerity measures." Western governments must raise taxes, cut spending, reduce public employment and sell off prime assets. This is the IMF approach, and presumably when Cameron warns about government profligacy, he has in mind a range of IMF solutions. More from the article:
"Barriers to action are now political as much as economic," Mr Cameron wrote in an open letter. "We must send a clear signal that we are ready to take the actions necessary to maintain growth and stability for all for the future." In the letter, signed by leaders from Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Mexico and South Korea, Mr Cameron implicitly criticised US and eurozone governments for not doing more to reduce budget deficits …
Eurozone governments must "act swiftly" to restore markets' confidence in the single currency and struggling countries like Greece. All European economies "must confront the debt overhang to prevent contagion to the wider global economy". Mr Cameron's warning was echoed in Washington at a meeting of the International Monetary Fund.
"The current economic situation is entering a dangerous phase," said Christine Lagarde, the fund's managing director. Robert Zoellick of the World Bank also said that the world economy is now "in the danger zone". Both warned that the world is facing a prolonged crisis unless leaders can find the "political determination" to set the recovery back on track.
When the world's leaders begin to warn of something in concert, we try to peer beneath the surface to see what they are really driving at. Austerity – the grinding down of the West's middle class – is one aspect of it, perhaps. But the installation of a global currency is perhaps another. Problem … solution. Thesis … antithesis.
Since we are morbidly suspicious of the financial crisis in the first place, we continue to look for ways that the elites try to take advantage of it to suggest further globalization. Sure enough, we came on this article over at Bloomberg: "Sarkozy Told Obama China's Yuan Should Be in SDR Basket."
According to the article, Sarkozy told President Barack Obama that the yuan should be included in the International Monetary Fund's Special Drawing Rights system. A "French presidential official" revealed the conversation. Placing the yuan in the SDR basket is supposedly a goal of Sarkozy's while France leads the Group of 20 for a year.
Sarkozy is anxious to have the yuan included in a global basket of currencies, but the article tells us that some Chinese officials are less enthused. "Last month Chinese central bank Deputy Governor Yi Gang said the yuan shouldn't rush to join the IMF's currency basket, according to a commentary he wrote in the Caixin Century magazine."
Still, there are other Chinese officials who support the idea. "People's Bank of China Governor Zhou Xiaochuan, floated the idea in 2009 of a new international reserve currency based on the SDR to replace the US dollar."
The great central-banking families that are trying to move the world toward global governance would like nothing better than to create a world currency. And perhaps the current economic crisis is providing them with that opportunity. Out of chaos … order.
We can see, perhaps, two emergent strands intersecting as the world's political leaders – who basically carry water for the elite banking families – try to propose evermore Draconian and globalist solutions. First, as we mentioned above, is increased austerity and the second is a global currency.
It has occurred to us, as well, that the powers-that-be miscalculated with this latest downturn. The scope is huge and the economic slump is deep. While in another era it might be easy for the elites to utilize such a crisis to their advantage, the Internet itself is likely making this sort of manipulation more difficult.
We see a kind of Internet Reformation taking shape around the world that is countering the globalist trends of theAnglosphere power elite. Things will likely get much worse before they get better, but the rising consciousness about the way the world REALLY works means that solutions meant to be implemented from the top down will likely be put in place with a good deal more difficulty.
Something is going on. When Western world leaders speak with one voice about "crises" that must be dealt with by concerted action, we immediately look for solutions with an internationalist focus. Austerity programs further damage already reeling middle classes and an expansion of SDRs via the Chinese yuan makes a global currency more feasible, theoretically anyway.
Conclusion: There are probably other ways that the elites will try to utilize this unwinding international depression to their advantage. In fact, it may be to their advantage to continually aggravate it. One thing we are sure of. Whatever solutions are proposed at the top will benefit the powers-that-be and their agendas first of all. Despite the rhetoric, the billions struggling with this economic crisis are merely an afterthought, or even worse – an enemy.
Those of you who have been following my articles know I have stated over two years ago, there is only one way for the world to avoid complete and ever lasting economic slavery to the International Bankers, and that is to have our governments military to arrest, convict, and annihilate the International banking families. Nothing has changed except their continuous increase in power over the worlds currency’s, and their pursuit of a single global currency. To the uninformed this objective may sound like a good idea, but if it had any benefit to anyone besides enabling the Bankers TO HAVE COMPLETE GLOBAL POWER OF THE MEANS OF ACCOMPLISHING COMMERCE, why did they have to resort to devaluing nations currency’s?

A recent major investigative report by the Los Angeles Times sheds light on what all this "war on terror" is actually costing–and actually accomplishing. According to the report, "A decade after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, federal and state governments are spending about $75 billion a year on domestic security, setting up sophisticated radio networks, upgrading emergency medical response equipment, installing surveillance cameras and bombproof walls, and outfitting airport screeners to detect an ever-evolving list of mobile explosives.
"But how effective has that 10-year spending spree been?
"'The number of people worldwide who are killed by Muslim-type terrorists, Al Qaeda wannabes, is maybe a few hundred outside of war zones. It's basically the same number of people who die drowning in the bathtub each year,' said John Mueller, an Ohio State University professor who has written extensively about the balance between threat and expenditures in fighting terrorism."
The LA Times report goes on to say, "Like the military-industrial complex that became a permanent and powerful part of the American landscape during the Cold War, the vast network of Homeland Security spyware, concrete barricades and high-tech identity screening is here to stay. The Department of Homeland Security, a collection of agencies ranging from border control to airport security sewn quickly together after Sept. 11, is the third-largest Cabinet department and–with almost no lawmaker willing to render the U.S. less prepared for a terrorist attack–one of those least to fall victim to budget cuts.
"The expensive and time-consuming screening now routine for passengers at airport boarding gates has detected plenty of knives, loaded guns and other contraband, but it has never identified a terrorist who was about to board a plane. Only 14 Americans have died in about three dozen instances of Islamic extremist terrorist plots targeted at the U.S. outside war zones since 2001–most of them involving one or two home-grown plotters."
The report also notes, "Large sums of Homeland Security money, critics complain, have been propelled by pork barrel politics into the backyards of the congressionally connected."
See the LA Times report.
Add to the LA Times report a report by Madison Ruppert. In the report, Ruppert notes that it is clearly the Bill of Rights–especially the First Amendment's freedom of speech and the Second Amendment's right to keep and bear arms–that are suffering the most egregious attacks from the federal government's "war on terror."
Ruppert concludes his report saying, "In short, despite the fact that all the statistics and data in the world directly contradict the report's findings and the claims made by clearly biased 'experts' on the threat of terrorism, especially of the homegrown variety, the HSPI [Homeland Security Policy Institute] and other bodies continue to fearmonger and lie to the American people to keep us scared while they empty our pockets and continue their imperialistic adventures in the Middle East and now North Africa."
See Ruppert's column here.
Back to the Times report, not only do we Americans have about an equal chance of dying at the hands of a terrorist as we do dying in our own bathtubs, we have a much greater risk of dying at the hands of prescription drugs–something lawfully encouraged and tightly controlled by the US government. According to a recent report, more people now die each year from prescription drugs than from automobile accidents. That's some 37,000 deaths via prescription drugs annually! (Come to think of it, how many people do you know who have died from marijuana?) And as hard as it will be for some people to accept, this number is gigantically greater than those who die from hard drugs such as heroin or crack cocaine. In fact, the prescription drug Vicodin, by itself, has killed more people than cocaine and heroin combined.
See the report on prescription drug deaths.
So, what has this trillion-dollar "war on terror" accomplished? If it's not making us more secure, what is it doing? Well, for one thing, it has created a stupendous surveillance society. Virtually every piece of public communication is now captured and stored by the federal government. Surveillance cameras are now ubiquitous throughout the United States. We have a gargantuan federal police department (which is anathema to the US Constitution): the Department of Homeland Security. We have thousands of Orwellian laws, most of which were spawned by the Patriot Act. And more and more often, law enforcement agencies are demonizing US citizens for their religious and political beliefs and statements–even categorizing them as potential domestic terrorists based simply on those religious and political beliefs.
To refresh reader's minds regarding how Americans have been labeled, profiled, and denigrated as "terrorists" because of their religious or political beliefs, please peruse the material on this web page.
Fortunately, it does appear that the combination of an emerging police state and a declining economy that has resulted from this "war on terror" is finally starting to catch the attention of the American people. According to a Brooking Institution report, "Six in ten Americans believe that that the United States weakened its economy by overspending in its responses to the 9/11 attacks. In particular, respondents felt this was especially true of the U.S. mission in Iraq. Two out of three Americans perceive that over the decade since 9/11, U.S. power and influence in the world has declined."
A Rasmussen report further revealed, "As with the recent turmoil in Egypt, most Americans (67%) say the United States should leave the situation in the Arab countries alone."
Beyond that, "A Zogby poll conducted in August 2007 found that 51% of Americans want Congress to probe Bush/Cheney regarding the 9/11 attacks, two-thirds (67%) of Americans say the 9/11 Commission should have investigated the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7."
See the BlacklistedNews.com report containing the above survey results and more.
The LA Times is right to question what Americans are getting for their $75 billion a year contribution to the "war on terror." Some could even argue–with convincing data–that the "war on terror" is in reality a "war on freedom."

In the beginning, the International Investment Bankers knew full well that to infiltrate the most powerful governments was the fastest way to dominate the world and produce a global government, Banking, and commerce cartel that had the funds and authority to do anything they wish with every person on earth.
As it stands now beginning with the Bankers, the USA, Russia, China and the rest of the smaller governments, Multi National corporations, and hundreds of think tanks, associations, groups, and of course the brain washed populations of many nations, we have an axis of evil with unbelievable resources to enforce draconian laws and regulations, that is only comprehensible to informed Christians, which is why they have infiltrated our churches with wolves in sheep clothing to present apostate humanism as a substitute for doctrinal Christianity.
Make no mistake about it, there is no power but the Lord God almighty that can save us from massive genocide, and absolute control of all survivors, and this is not a time to bend over and kiss your butt goodbye, it’s a time to get educated on the methods used to defeat us, and to Pray fervently, and constantly, for the Lords help.
Contrary to false doctrine, Jesus Christ is not a passivist, He will come back as a LION and rule with a rod of iron, and if you are not enabled by Him to believe that, you won’t have a prayer. NOTHING CAN HELP YOU. NOTHING, WILL SAVE YOU FROM HIS WRATH, EXCEPT BEING ONE OF HIS PEOPLE. In the mean time He expects His people to reject these tyrants that think they can defeat HIM. Far better to die as a Christian, than to worship the beast, because the death of your body will not end your suffering, and it will continue forever. These are the times to stand up and spit in the face of our tyrants, not bow down to their apostasy. Pray for the Lord to have our military annihilate the Bankers, and their puppets, and for our government to redistribute their wealth to all Nations. That is what REAL redistribution of wealth is. This entire globe belongs to Christ Jesus, along with everything that exists. And if you oppose that, you are toast. Those of you who believe in universalism take heed.
Don’t forget, I am very aware that many of my readers do not believe, and only want peace and prosperity; to them, all I can honesty say is, GOOD LUCK FOLKS!

I have had difficulty writing lately, feeling dazed, depressed, and disabled by the barrage of disasters, tyranny, and blatant corruption so obvious these days. I have failed to finish items, finding myself intellectually “punch drunk” in the face of yet another tragedy or outrage. But we must find the will to actively turn the tide. Where is Spartacus?
Many of us are just closing our doors, even our minds, trying to avoid the deluge of bad news and outright lies spewing from the corporate mainstream media and government offices in our clearly fascist welfare/warfare police state. The alternative media is also often depressing in exposing the dark machinations of the elitists. Corruption is rampant, and not even hidden. Brazen crimes are enforced with intimidation while the courts look the other way. Public officials are so confident of their “good ol’ boy” system that they no longer bother to even pretend they are representative, honest, or accountable to We the People. Our knowledge and consent is no longer desired or respected by them. The public servants have become our masters, completely violating the basic principles of American Heritage in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. The Holy Bible is ridiculed and often outlawed, even The Ten Commandments.
We need not use speculations about secret weapons, HAARP, black ops, UFO reports, TR3 B triangular craft or space aliens to convince our neighbors of our perils. No need for “conspiracy theories”. What is in plain public view is more than enough to warn our families, friends, and neighbors. Such as when the New Mexico State Police ruled Officer Lopez “did not violate the law” when a security camera had taped him having sex with a woman on the hood of a car on public land in August… in uniform! Gee, could we all be doing this without being charged with indecency or lewd behavior? Government officers’ disrespect for law only encourages lawlessness, or tyranny, for us all. Which will it be?
Federal Judge Royce Lamberth even recently “concluded that there’s no real interest in determining whether the Obama Social Security Number is genuine or fraudulent, arguing that the need for privacy for the president trumps all else,” Bob Unruh reported in an Aug. 30th article in World Net Daily. He stated that Lamberth wrote that “whether Obama is using a fake number isn’t his concern, ‘Even if the plaintiff’s allegations were true…’ ”
Every case brought against Obama has been dismissed out of hand by various courts, all denying anyone has standing to challenge a lawless president with any charges, even the states which are signatories to the Constitution. Elena Kagan was appointed to the US Supreme Court with huge conflicts of interest, including her having worked as a federal prosecutor defending Obama against numerous charges regarding his citizenship status.
The “Gang of Nine” is not looking out for our interests, and even openly discusses using foreign laws in rendering their decisions, in violation of their oaths of office requiring defense of the US Constitution. Speaking of oaths of office, recall Obama’s public oath-taking was flubbed, and he later took his oath again in a private ceremony. Do you ever wonder what words were actually in the oath Obama officially swore to?
I last published about the usurpation of Congress by the “Super Committee” Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner agreed to. Only twelve senators and congressmen plus Obama will create fiscal legislation (and?), disallowing the rest of Congress to do anything but rubber stamp the committee’s decisions. The presidential usurper has taken upon himself the power of the purse rightfully held only by Congress, and neutered both houses on the Hill. We now have taxation without representation! Do you accept this?
The Justice Dept. under Eric Holder, in a BATF budget line item, is found to be authorizing illegal shipments of thousands of military-grade firearms to Mexican drug cartels. Subordinate attorneys say Holder refuses to prosecute black-on-white crimes under Obama’s watch, such as when the Black Panthers, who were videotaped openly intimidating white voters at the polls, were not prosecuted. Where is the justice?
Obama has repeatedly refused to obey or respect court decisions and has taken it upon himself to determine if federal statutes are Constitutional. He ignores Congress, and has taken away the purse strings from our public representatives in the House, ignoring the procedures outlined in the Constitution. He is refusing to defend our states against the Mexican invasion, and grants amnesty to illegal aliens despite Congress rejecting it. He has even brought charges against Arizona in the United Nations to stifle that states’ enforcement of federal immigration laws Obama refuses to enforce. The public loudly said “NO!” to Obama’s nationalized healthcare, and courts have ruled against it. But “Obamacare” will be imposed anyway, he says. Will you allow this?
Not only domestic laws are violated, but the Geneva Convention and the principles for international law stated in the Nuremberg Trials have been cast aside contemptuously. The US military is sent to conquer one small nation after another for corporate profits, nations not even capable of attacking American shores. America is no longer the hope of freedom and prosperity, the “Shining City on the Hill”. It is feared and reviled. Torture is condoned, and Obama claims authority to kill anyone, anywhere, on his command alone. Habeus Corpus, Posse Commitatus, Due Process, Rights to Privacy, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of the Press, Peaceful Assembly and Free Speech are things of the past now. The Second Amendment is under constant attack, and Obama is supporting a UN treaty that would outlaw civilian firearms. Warrants are no longer needed, and a court in Indiana recently ruled you have no right to defend your home or family against police even when such officers are blatantly behaving in a criminal manner. It is a license to rob, rape, and kill. Just try to object to the TSA agents groping your wife’s crotch, if you doubt this.
Banksters are exposed committing mortgage (and other) frauds, but courts can see no reason to prosecute those “too big to fail“. Instead, the laws will be amended to speed up the foreclosure process, giving “little people” less time to review legalities and options that might let them retain their homes, farms, and other real estate investments. The entire financial system imposed by the Federal Reserve Bank system is designed to bankrupt this nation via usury and paper currency legally deemed “debt instruments“. The Bible warned us against the dangers of usury, and becoming debtors. Debt is monetized and real money, gold and silver, may soon become black market items. Remember how President Franklin D. Roosevelt outlawed private gold ownership and confiscated it?
Socialist policies and Capitalist greed have driven American industry, entrepreneurs, inventors, farmers, ranchers, fishermen, loggers, truckers, machinists, and more, right into bankruptcy. In “Public-Private Partnerships”, losses and liabilities are socialized upon the public and profits and privileges are privatized for the elite. America won WWII by virtue of her manufacturing strength backed by a strong work ethic reinforced by a living wage. Now we must work for less and less, if we yet have a job, being reduced to poverty.
We have become a nation bereft of many basic industries, and are buying many military supplies from Red China. Chinese electronics used in US military applications were found to have secretly installed chips that report data to the Chinese. America is seen as weak and ripe for the picking. Many foreign troops are already stationed here, and Obama has authorized the Chinese to build their own cities on American soil under their own flag with Chinese law enforcement in “Free Trade Zones” all across the land. Do you see a “Trojan Horse”?
How might we turn the tables on our treasonous public officials? Where is Spartacus?
I might suggest that instead of railing against the corrupt rulings and policies being thrown at us like a barrage of bricks and Molotov cocktails flying from all three branches of government that we instead agree with the pirates in the District of Criminals. Before you think I am daft, let me assure you there is a method to my madness. I still strive as a patriotic Christian freedom fighter. What I am advocating is a means of turning the tables against the “Great Satan” holed up on the Potomac, a means of turning its own evil words against it with some political judo. Local sheriffs can be a great help if we persuade them to follow former sheriffs Richard Mack or Jim Schwiesow’s examples. Maricopa County Sheriff Arpaio has also been bold, daring to investigate Obama’s citizenship status and enforce immigration laws.
As Lamberth has ruled privacy trumps all else, “Even if plaintiff’s allegations were true,” we should assert the same rights, as under American legal heritage, all are to be deemed equal under the law. No person is to be deemed to be above the law. We should end the massive “full spectrum” surveillance we suffer. We all know that the politicians, judges, bureaucrats, and uniformed minions all have deemed themselves to be above the law. They have often stated “I am the law!” and free to do whatever they may please with us civilians… and it does not matter what the Bill of Rights says if we disobey an officer! Public “servants” have usurped the public mastery, it is high time they were disciplined to know they cannot claim rights superior to We the People.
When the government’s, Congress, courts, or bureaucracy rules on any issue, we should respond in kind to act with equal application to expose the injustice and absurdity of their corrupt and destructive policies and practices. We can do this peacefully, and in solidarity in massive public protests and class actions, much like the many men who claimed to be Spartacus in that great movie’s climax. The federal forces, of course, will loudly, perhaps violently, respond that the laws are to be applied to the general public, not government’s people. They will expose themselves as the tyrants and criminals that they are when we behave within the legal parameters they set for themselves and claim equal application of the law. We must remind government officers our Bill of Rights was written to restrain government, not We the People. The need to exercise our rights to citizens’ arrest, the Grand Jury system of indictment, and a Citizen’s Tribunal will become obvious. Dare to be disillusioned, see and act upon the truth!
In so doing, we will also demonstrate to the peoples of the world that we Americans do not approve, consent, or tolerate the evil perpetrated by the elitists in their quest to enslave humanity and reduce our numbers with genocide. Rekindle the Spirit of ‘76 ! We must secede to succeed! Perhaps we can once again be that “Shining City on a Hill”, the bastion of Truth, Justice, and Liberty for all. But we must not flinch in rising to meet the challenge. We need real men, warriors running to the battle. Where is Spartacus?
Look around folks. Do you see anyone in the presidential election lineup that reminds you of another Spartacus, or do you see the same bunch of Banker puppets to choose from. Let me make it as clear as a bell, every one of you that has dragged your mind to an understanding of what is going on in our government is a Spartacus. In fact, we have a Nation of people who are all Spartacus's’, and the sword of truth is your ammunition. How do I know this? Simple, you could not possibly be stupid enough to be unaware of the tyranny in our government, or so cowardly to accept it. You’re just waiting for that spark to ignite your rage. Then you will march right up to the (OUR) white House and drag that imposter out and put him on a ship to Kenya, or some other hell-hole. Tell me I’m wrong; tell me you don’t have the balls to protect your country. I won’t believe you; I can’t believe you! Americans’ are free men above all else, and will never give up.

Everything you ever wanted to know about the 9/11 conspiracy theory in under 5 minutes.
TRANSCRIPT: On the morning of September 11, 2001, 19 men armed with boxcutters directed by a man on dialysis in a cave fortress halfway around the world using a satellite phone and a laptop directed the most sophisticated penetration of the most heavily-defended airspace in the world, overpowering the passengers and the military combat-trained pilots on 4 commercial aircraft before flying those planes wildly off course for over an hour without being molested by a single fighter interceptor.
These 19 hijackers, devout religious fundamentalists who liked to drink alcohol, snort cocaine, and live with pink-haired strippers, managed to knock down 3 buildings with 2 planes in New York, while in Washington a pilot who couldn’t handle a single engine Cessna was able to fly a 757 in an 8,000 foot descending 270 degree corskscrew turn to come exactly level with the ground, hitting the Pentagon in the budget analyst officewhere DoD staffers were working on the mystery of the 2.3 trillion dollars that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld had announced “missing” from the Pentagon’s coffers in a press conference the day before, on September 10, 2001.
Luckily, the news anchors knew who did it within minutes, the pundits knew within hours, the Administration knew within the day, and the evidenceliterally fell into the FBI’s lap. But for some reason a bunch of crazy conspiracy theorists demanded an investigation into the greatest attack on American soil in history.
The investigation was delayed, underfunded, set up to fail, a conflict of interest and a cover up from start to finish. It was based on testimonyextracted through torture, the records of which were destroyed. It failed to mention the existence of WTC7, Able Danger, Ptech, Sibel Edmonds, OBL and the CIA, and the drills of hijacked aircraft being flown into buildings that were being simulated at the precise same time that those events were actually happening. It was lied to by the Pentagon, the CIA, the Bush Administration and as for Bush and Cheney…well, no one knows what they told it because they testified in secret, off the record, not under oath and behind closed doors. It didn’t bother to look at who funded the attacks because that question is of “little practical significance“. Still, the 9/11 Commission did brilliantly, answering all of the questions the public had (except most of the victims’ family members’ questions) and pinned blame on all the people responsible (although no one so much as lost their job), determining the attacks were “a failure of imagination” because “I don’t think anyone could envision flying airplanes into buildings ” except the Pentagon and FEMA and NORAD and the NRO.
The DIA destroyed 2.5 TB of data on Able Danger, but that’s OK because it probably wasn’t important.
The SEC destroyed their records on the investigation into the insider trading before the attacks, but that’s OK because destroying the records of the largest investigation in SEC history is just part of routine record keeping.
NIST has classified the data that they used for their model of WTC7′s collapse, but that’s OK because knowing how they made their model of that collapse would “jeopardize public safety“.
The FBI has argued that all material related to their investigation of 9/11 should be kept secret from the public, but that’s OK because the FBI probably has nothing to hide.
This man never existed, nor is anything he had to say worthy of your attention, and if you say otherwise you are a paranoid conspiracy theorist and deserve to be shunned by all of humanity. Likewise him, him, him, and her. (and her and her and him).
Osama Bin Laden lived in a cave fortress in the hills of Afghanistan, but somehow got away. Then he was hiding out in Tora Bora but somehow got away. Then he lived in Abottabad for years, taunting the most comprehensive intelligence dragnet employing the most sophisticated technology in the history of the world for 10 years, releasing video after video with complete impunity (and getting younger and younger as he did so), before finally being found in a daring SEAL team raid which wasn’t recorded on video, in which he didn’t resist or use his wife as a human shield, and in which these crack special forces operatives panicked and killed this unarmed man, supposedly the best source of intelligence about those dastardly terrorists on the planet. Then they dumped his body in the ocean before telling anyone about it. Then a couple dozen of that team’s members died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.
This is the story of 9/11, brought to you by the media which told you the hard truths about JFK and incubator babies and mobile production facilitiesand the rescue of Jessica Lynch.
If you have any questions about this story…you are a batshit, paranoid, tinfoil, dog-abusing baby-hater and will be reviled by everyone. If you love your country and/or freedom, happiness, rainbows, rock and roll, puppy dogs, apple pie and your grandma, you will never ever express doubts about any part of this story to anyone. Ever.
This has been a public service announcement by: the Friends of the FBI, CIA, NSA, DIA, SEC, MSM, White House, NIST, and the 9/11 Commission. Because Ignorance is Strength.

Alright, you asked for Them,
Now Here They Are
Over the years more of my regular readers than I can remember have asked for some history on My OldDog mascot, things like, when did you begin using the name OldDog, who designed it, do you get many nasty comments about it, or do most people like it?
Here is the history of the name, and the graphical characterization of it. It began when I had a CB (citizen Band radio) shop in Hobart Indiana and used the handle Red Duck.
The shop was right next to Interstate 65 and many a long-haul trucker would chew the fat with me all hours of the day and night. Because I was running a 2,000 watt amplifier many of the local home installation’s would complain I was turning their clock radios on, and bleeding into their televisions, which only produced support from the truckers, and led to many irate conversations that resulted in some small amount of celebrity status for Red Duck among the truckers.
One of my most vocal supporters was named OldDog, and we chewed more fat than a hen house full of Roosters. He was In fact, an Old Dog, and had been driving over the road for forty years or more. When he retired, he insisted I take his handle, because we had become such good friends. I had kept his truck radio tuned and loud for many a year, and he would not take no for an answer. So, to show respect for a crusty old man who had more cupspuh than anyone I have ever met, I changed my handle to OldDog. For one thing, it fits, and I have carried on the grouchy old man personality every since. This all took place back in the mid to late 1970s.
The graphical characterization was a brain fart I had a few years after I started publishing political and economic information on the web, and a close friend and fellow web activist took instructions from me and the bull dogs head that I had found on the web and artfully constructed the original grayscale OldDog. After about a year people had been making so many comments about it that I hired a local graphic designer to polish it up and add full color.
I give full credit to Barbara Peterson from farmwars.info, and Nathan Billingsley of Billingsley Concepts.inc for the art work, as all I did was provide a picture and some instructions to Barb and she took it from there, and Nathan polished it up. As for me, I can’t draw a circle.
I also give credit to all my readers who kept up the request for T-shirts, as I had no intentions of making money on the web, and was kinda afraid of commerce there anyway. Considering the hassle I put Barbara through during the construction of the product page and shopping cart, it’s a wonder she is still my friend, because I insisted on designing the product page and required her to find shopping cart software flexible enough to accommodate it. Now, you know the history of the OldDog mascot, that’s it! I wish the original OldDog were still alive to see it, as I know he would be proud his handle survived.
In reality, the T-Shirt venture is the product of the many requests from my loyal readers, and Yes, I am still considering sending one to the White House.
This entire web adventure has been for the purpose of enticing my fellow blue-collar workers into the intriguing world of the political and economic history of the United States of America, and from the personal communication’s with hundreds of these fine people, I have evidence that I have finally done something to be proud of. There’s a lot more people out there that now understand; the people of the United States of America have been beguiled by the International Bankers from the get go. If anyone out there wants to thank me for what they have learned, click the OldDog T-Shirt link on the navigation bar, and buy a damn T-Shirt! It was your idea……………....OldDog

What are the Enumerated Powers of the President?
The President’s Enumerated Powers, Rulemaking by Executive Agencies, & Executive Orders
– Publius Huldah Tuesday, August 30, 2011
On election night, November 2, 2010, Rep. John Boehner said in his victory speech:
…While our new majority will serve as your voice in the people’s House, we must remember it is the president who sets the agenda for our government. … [emphasis added]
Next morning, Ezra Klein commented in the Cult of the President lives on:
I’d like Boehner to show us where in the Constitution it says that the president sets the agenda for the government.
But Boehner is not as astute as Ezra Klein, and does not know that it is our Constitution which sets the “agenda” for the federal government. The agenda the Constitution sets restricts the federal government to war, international relations & commerce; and domestically, the establishment of an uniform commercial system: a monetary system based on gold & silver, weights & measures, patents & copyrights, a bankruptcy code, and mail delivery (Art. I, Sec. 8, cls.1-16). 1
And because none of the House Republicans seem to know that our Constitution sets the agenda, and don’t know that our Constitution also enumerates the powers delegated to the President, they are allowing Obama to carry out his “agenda” to transform our Country into a fascist dictatorship.
What are the Enumerated Powers of the President?
The powers of the President are “carefully limited” and precisely defined by our Constitution. In Federalist Paper No. 71 (last para), Alexander Hamilton asks,
…what would be … feared from an elective magistrate of four years’ duration, with the confined authorities of a President of the United States?…[emphasis added] 2
The answer to Hamilton’s question is this: There would be nothing to fear if Presidents obeyed the Constitution. But they don’t obey it because the dolts in Congress don’t make them obey it!
Well, then! Here is the complete list of the President’s enumerated powers:
Art. I, Sec. 7, cls. 2 & 3, grants to the President the power to approve or veto Bills and Resolutions passed by Congress.
Art. I, Sec. 9, next to last clause, grants to the executive Branch – the Treasury Department – the power to write checks pursuant to Appropriations made by law – i.e., by Congress.
Art. II, Sec. 1, cl.1, vests “executive Power” [see below] in the President.
Art. II, Sec. 1, last clause, sets forth the President’s Oath of Office – to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”.
Art. II, Sec. 2, cl.1:
- makes the President Commander in Chief of the armed forces when they have been called by Congress into the actual service of the United States . 3
- authorizes the President to require the principal Officers in the executive Departments to provide written Opinions upon the Duties of their Offices.
- grants the President power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for offenses against the United States, 4 but he can not stop impeachments of any federal judge or federal officer.
Article II, Sec. 2, cl. 2 grants to the President the power:
- to make Treaties – with the advice and consent of the Senate. 5
- to nominate Ambassadors, other public ministers and Consuls, federal judges, and various other officers – with the advice and consent of the Senate.
Article II, Sec. 2, cl. 3 grants to the President the power to make recess appointments, which expire at the end of Congress’ next session.
Art. II, Sec. 3:
- Imposes the duty on the President to periodically advise Congress on the State of the Union , and authorizes the President to recommend to Congress such measures as he deems wise.
- Authorizes the President, on extraordinary Occasions, to convene one or both houses of Congress [e.g., when he asks Congress to declare War]; and if both houses can not agree on when to adjourn, he is authorized to adjourn them to such time as he deems proper.
- Imposes the duty upon the President to receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers.
- Imposes the duty upon the President to take care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and
- Imposes the duty upon the President to Commission all the Officers of the United States.
That’s it! Anything else the President does is unlawful and a usurpation of powers not granted.
What is the “executive Power”?
So! The granting of the “executive Power” to the President is not a blank check giving him power to do whatever he wants. The “executive Power” is merely the power to put into effect – to implement – those Acts of Congress which are within Congress’ enumerated powers. Thus, if Congress establishes “an uniform Rule of Naturalization” (as authorized by Art. I, Sec. 8, cl. 4), it is the President’s duty to implement and enforce the law Congress makes. The President is to carry out – to execute – Acts of Congress.
But note well: His Oath of Office – to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”, shows that the President must use his independent judgment 6 as to which acts of Congress are and are not constitutional. Thus, as shown in this paper, “The Oath Of Office: The Check On Usurpations By Congress, The Executive Branch, & Federal Judges”, the President has the duty, imposed by his Oath, to act as a “check” on Congress (and on federal courts, as well).
Accordingly, when Congress makes a “law” which is not authorized by the Constitution, it
…would not be the supreme law of the land, but a usurpation of power not granted by the Constitution”… Federalist No. 33 (last two paras); 7
and since the President’s Oath requires him to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”, the President must refuse to enforce an unconstitutional “law” made by Congress. Otherwise, he’d be in collusion with the legislative branch to usurp power over The People. 8
So, then! Acting as a check on Congress (and federal courts) by refusing to enforce unconstitutional “laws” (and opinions), as well as the duty of entertaining foreign dignitaries, are the only occasions where the President may act alone. His prime responsibility is to do what Congress tells him.
Article I, Sec. 1 & The Unconstitutional Administrative Law State
Now, you must learn of “administrative law” – i.e., rulemaking by Executive Agencies. 9
Article I, Sec.1, U.S. Constitution, says:
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.
That little phrase is of immense importance. It means what it says, that only Congress may make laws: laws are to be made only by Representatives whom we can fire every two years, and by Senators whom we can fire every six years.
But in Joseph Postell’s “must read” paper, “ Constitution in Decline”, he shows that during the administration of the nefarious Woodrow Wilson, Congress began delegating its lawmaking powers to agencies within the Executive Branch. Since then, Congress passes an overall legislative scheme, and delegates the details to be written by un-elected, un-accountable bureaucrats in the various Executive Agencies. They write the “administrative rules” which implement the Legislation. The result is the execrable Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), which is accepted, by the indoctrinated members of my profession, as “law”. Go here to see the abominable CFR.
May the President Lawfully Make “Executive Orders”?
The Guiding Principle is this: The President has no authority to do ANYTHING apart from constitutional authority or statutory authority (assuming the statute itself is constitutional).
1. So! Respecting those matters within his constitutional authority & duties, and authority & duties imposed by constitutional statutes, the President may make “orders” – call them “executive orders” if you like.
For example: It is the President’s constitutional duty “to take care that the Laws be faithfully executed”. Thus, he has the duty to enforce [constitutional] laws made by Congress. How does he enforce the laws? Sometimes, by means of “orders”.
To illustrate: Say Congress makes a law, as authorized by Art. I, Sec. 8, clause 6, making it a felony to counterfeit the Securities and current Coin of the United States. If U.S. Attorneys are not prosecuting counterfeiters, the President should “order” them to do it. Or fire them.
But say Congress makes a law which purports to make possession of shotguns shorter than 18 inches a crime. Since the President’s Oath requires him to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”, he is obligated to “order” the U.S. Attorney General and the U.S. Attorneys to refuse to prosecute anyone for possession of sawed-off shotguns. Why? Because such a “law” is unconstitutional as outside the scope of the legislative powers granted to Congress in Our Constitution. It also violates the Second Amendment.
Clearly, such an order to refuse prosecution falls within the President’s constitutional duties (enforce the Constitution), and he is giving an order to people within the Executive Branch. The President is the one who is charged with carrying out the Acts of Congress – he has the “executive Power”. But because of his Oath, he may not carry out unconstitutional “laws”. That is one of the checks on Congress.
The President may also properly make orders addressing housekeeping issues within the Executive Branch: Dress codes, no smoking or drinking on the job, he may encourage executive agencies to hire qualified handicapped people, and the like. Just as if you have a business, you may make orders addressing such matters.
So! Do you see? The President may lawfully make orders to carry out his constitutionally imposed powers and duties, and powers bestowed by statutes which are constitutional; and he may address “housekeeping” issues within the Executive Branch.
2. But a President may not lawfully, by means of “orders”, exercise powers not delegated to him by the Constitution or by (constitutional) Acts of Congress.
Yet Obama has issued various executive orders which are unlawful because they are not authorized by the Constitution or by (constitutional) Acts of Congress. Here are two executive orders which are particularly pernicious because they undermine our foundational Principle of “Federalism”, and have as their object the “improper consolidation of the States into one … republic.”: 10
E.O.13575 – Establishment of the White House Rural Council: This E.O. provides for over 25 federal departments & agencies to run every aspect of rural life!
E.O. Establishing Council of Governors: The effect of this E.O. is to erase the Independence and Sovereignty of the States and consolidate us into a national system under the boot of the Executive Branch.
Joseph Stalin couldn’t do better than this. These E.O.s are blatantly unconstitutional as usurpations of powers not granted in The Constitution! So, Nullify them!
3. Likewise, executive agencies may not, by means of “administrative rulemaking”, usurp the powers of Congress. (Remember, because of Art. I, Sec.1, all rulemaking by executive agencies is unconstitutional)!
Here are several cases of such unconstitutional rulemaking:
a) When Congress refused to pass the DREAM ACT, which provided a path to citizenship for certain categories of illegal aliens, ICE had no authority to implement it, in whole or in part, by executive “memo”! Power over Rules of Naturalization (i.e., who qualifies for citizenship and what are the procedures) are expressly granted to Congress by Article I, Sec. 8, cl. 4, which grants to Congress alone the Power “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization”.
The President has no constitutional power over immigration & naturalization except to enforce the Acts of Congress respecting those subjects. Article II, Sec. 3, which imposes upon the President the duty to “take care that the Laws be faithfully executed”, requires the President to enforce such constitutional Acts of Congress.
But if Congress refuses to make a law respecting naturalization, a President who enacts it anyway, via “executive order”, or “administrative regulation”, or “administrative memo” by his underlings in the various executive agencies, is acting lawlessly. His unlawful acts should be nullified, and he should be removed from office for his usurpation.
b) Congress recently did not pass three sinister and grotesquely unconstitutional bills Obama wanted: “Card check”, “ Cap and Trade”, and the Disclose Act. These bills are unconstitutional as outside the scope of the legislative powers granted by our Constitution to Congress. Nowhere does our Constitution give Congress authority to make laws about labor unions (“card check”), or to regulate carbon emissions – CO2, the stuff humans and animals exhale, and plants & trees need for photosynthesis (“cap and trade”), or requiring people with federal contracts to report their personal political activities to the Executive Branch (“Disclose Act”)!
Since Congress may not lawfully make laws on such subjects, no one can. Yet, Obama is circumventing the Constitution and implementing these three failed & unconstitutional bills by agency rulemaking or executive order!:
The National Labor Relations Board, is implementing “card check” by agency regulation. Read this.
The Environmental Protection Agency is implementing “cap and trade” by agency regulation. Read this.
And it appears that Obama – in furtherance of his “agenda” to reward his supporters and punish non-supporters – is considering signing an executive order implement the Disclose Act. Read this.
So! Let us sum this up: The President must always uphold our Constitution. When Congress makes an unconstitutional law, the President must refuse to implement it; and he may, by means of executive orders, instruct people in the Executive Branch not to comply. E.g., if a President orders the U.S. Attorneys to decline to prosecute persons for possession of sawed-off shotguns, he would be acting lawfully because Congress has no authority to ban them. But the President is violating the Constitution when he implements “card check” by agency rules made by the NLRB; when he implements “cap & trade” by agency rules made by the EPA; and the “Disclose Act” by executive order, because the President and executive agencies (as well as Congress) do not have authority over these objects; and further, no one in the Executive Branch has authority to make “laws”!
What Should we do about illegal Executive Orders & Rules made by Executive Agencies?
A Congress filled with he-men and she-women, instead of ignorant cowards, wusses, and wimps, would impeach obama for his usurpations in signing unconstitutional executive orders, and in circumventing Congress by having executive agencies implement, by means of administrative rules, legislation which Congress did not pass. In Federalist Paper No. 66 (2nd para), Hamilton expressly states that impeachment is an essential check on a President who encroaches on the powers of Congress; and in Federalist No. 77 (last para), points out that impeachment is the remedy for “abuse of the executive authority”.
But since the people in Congress are too ignorant and weak to rid us of the abomination in the White House, the States and Counties must nullify unconstitutional executive orders and administrative rules, or submit to slavery and the destruction of our Constitutional Republic. Since State and County officials have taken the Oath to support the U.S. Constitution (Art. VI, last cl.), they are bound by Oath to refuse to submit to illegal executive orders and illegal agency rules.
And of course, WE THE PEOPLE and our businesses must also spit on such illegalities by the Executive Branch. Our “creature” ( Federalist No. 33, 5th para, Hamilton), has turned into Frankenstein, and has lost all legitimacy. PH
1 In Federalist No. 45 (9th para), James Madison, Father of Our Constitution, says,
The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. [boldface added]
2 In Federalist No. 48, Madison points out that in our representative republic,
…the executive magistracy is carefully limited; both in the extent and the duration of its power… (5th para) [i.e., limited & enumerated powers and 4 year terms]
…the executive power being restrained within a narrower compass [than that granted to the legislative branch], and being more simple in its nature… (6th para)
In Federalist No. 75 (3rd para), Hamilton says,
…The essence of the legislative authority is to enact laws, or, in other words, to prescribe rules for the regulation of the society; while the execution of the laws, and the employment of the common strength, either for this purpose or for the common defense, seem to comprise all the functions of the executive magistrate… [boldface added]
In Federalist No. 78 (6th para), Hamilton says,
…The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules … The judiciary … has no influence over … the sword or the purse …and …must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm … for the efficacy of its judgments. [boldface added].
Read the list of the President’s enumerated powers! The President’s powers really are “confined” and “carefully limited” to carrying out laws made by Congress and enforcing certain judicial decisions, military defense (a power shared with Congress), appointing officials (subject to Congress’ approval), and entertaining foreign dignitaries. That’s it!
3 Only Congress has the power to declare war (Art. I, Sec. 8, cl. 11)! See clauses 12-16 showing that Congress has the power to determine the funding for the military, and to make the Rules for the discipline & training of the military and the Militia.
4 Re “Offenses against the United States”: I explain here the criminal laws Our Constitution permits Congress to make. It’s a short list. Take note, you federal criminal defense lawyers.
5 I explain the treaty making power of the United States here and here.
6 During the Terri Schiavo case, Alan Keyes spoke on the radio about the constitutional powers of the President. I seem to recall that Dr. Keyes spoke of the President’s obligation to exercise his “independent judgment” as to whether an act of Congress or a federal court opinion is constitutional. Whatever he said, he opened my eyes, and enabled me to see the elegant beauty of our Constitution.
7 Hamilton also says in Federalist No. 33 (6th para)
…it will not follow…that acts of …[the federal government] which are NOT PURSUANT to its constitutional powers, but which are invasions of the residuary authorities of … [the States], will become the supreme law of the land. These will be merely acts of usurpation, and will deserve to be treated as such… [T]he clause which declares the supremacy of the laws of the Union [Art. VI, cl. 2]…EXPRESSLY confines this supremacy to laws made PURSUANT TO THE CONSTITUTION … [caps are Hamilton’s, boldface mine]
8 Madison says in Federalist No. 44 (last para before 2.):
…the success of the usurpation [by Congress] will depend on the executive and judiciary departments, which are to expound and give effect to the legislative acts; … [boldface added]
The President must not collude with the executive or judicial branches to usurp power over The People!
9 Most of the existing “federal” executive agencies are unconstitutional. They meddle in matters which are not the business of the federal government, as power over the matters is not granted by our Constitution to the federal government. Here are a few of the unconstitutional federal agencies: the Departments of Agriculture, Labor, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, Education, Transportation, and Homeland Security. Likewise for the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, the Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the National Economic Council, the Small Business Administration, the Council on Environmental Quality, etc., etc., etc.
10 Progressives have erased the concept of “federalism” from our minds. “Federalism” refers to the form of our government & the division of powers between the national government and the States.A “Federation” (which is what our Constitution creates) is an alliance of independent States associated together in a “confederation” with a national government to which is delegated authority over the States in specifically defined areas ONLY (i.e., the enumerated powers granted to Congress by our Constitution). Those enumerated powers are the only areas wherein the national government is to have authority over the States. In all other matters, the States have supremacy, are independent, and sovereign! Learn more of “federalism” here and here.
Our Framers warned against the consolidation of the sovereign States into one national sovereignty: In Federalist No. 32 (2nd para), Hamilton writes,
An entire consolidation of the States into one complete national sovereignty would imply an entire subordination of the parts; and whatever powers might remain in them, would be altogether dependent on the general will. But as the plan of the convention [the Constitution] aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States…. [caps are Hamilton’s; boldface mine]
Federalist No. 62 (5th para) says,
… the equal vote allowed to each State is at once a constitutional recognition of the portion of sovereignty remaining in the individual States, and an instrument for preserving that residuary sovereignty. So far the equality ought to be no less acceptable to the large than to the small States; since they are not less solicitous to guard, by every possible expedient, against an improper consolidation of the States into one simple republic. [boldface mine]
And in Federalist No. 39 (6th para), Madison says,
“But it was not sufficient,” say the adversaries of the proposed Constitution, “for the convention to adhere to the republican form. They ought, with equal care, to have preserved the FEDERAL form, which regards the Union as a CONFEDERACY of sovereign states; instead of which, they have framed a NATIONAL government, which regards the Union as a CONSOLIDATION of the States.” And it is asked by what authority this bold and radical innovation was undertaken? The handle which has been made of this objection requires that it should be examined with some precision….[caps are Madison’s]
Madison then gives a brilliant exposition of the “national” and “federal” aspects of Our Constitution. More than any other Paper, No. 39 addresses the primary political problem of our Time: The national government’s destruction of “federalism” by eradicating all vestiges of sovereign & independent States.
We are a trusting People easily lead astray. Make something sound “patriotic”, and we are all for it. Since 1892, American public school children have been indoctrinated with the statist Lie that ours is an indivisible national government. This was done by means of the Pledge of Allegiance: “….one nation … indivisible…”. Is it any wonder that the author of this nasty bit of poison, Francis Bellamy, was a socialist who worked with the National Education Association to institute this statist indoctrination into the public schools? This pernicious pledge is why you don’t know, and no one knows, that our Constitution created a “federation” of sovereign & independent States, united only for the limited purposes enumerated in the Constitution. Wikipedia has good info on Bellamy. PH

Back in 1992, less than a year after I began my journey of learning the truth about who really runs this country, who the traitors are and how deep the corruption runs, Bush, Sr. began promoting a new world order. As a matter of fact, he used that term 162 times while he was president.  Those of us who tried to explain the planned destruction of America were called the usual names: wackos, anti-government this or that. The same year, Joe Biden, traitor to this republic, openly on the senate floor outlined the 'Wilsonian Vision' for a new world order.
One world government. New World Order. Just code words for anti-government, "disenfranchised" kooks writing all those books because they hate President Clinton. No, make that Bush, Jr. No, make that Marxist Obama/Soetoro. Millions like me have given up precious time with our family; fun is a word of the past and forgets any paychecks – just because we do not have anything better to do! What I learned in the first year of my research scared the hell out of me and that took care of the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. There was a job to do and that was try and reach every American who would listen. Back then, there were few. Now, we are on the brink and the destroyers no longer hide their intentions:
Obama to Usher In the New World Order at G-20 – FOX News
The usurper talks about uniform international monetary regulations. What Comrade Obama speaks of is a component of one world government: One world banking system. All but a fait accompli and it will destroy what is left of our economy and our sovereignty. It will end up reducing us, our children and grand children to poverty like third world countries. Watch Joan Veon's concise explanation on video. To defeat your enemy, you must understand them and always remember: He who controls the currency and the gold controls everything.
One world government means one world religion and that is where the Rick Warren's of the world come into play. Warren's mission is "modern religion." His crusade is to build a "unified theology" which pushes "civility". I've watched him and he's very slick. There is a huge effort world wide to "blend" the world's religions, ending up with some wacky version the "New Age" baloney. The number one goal, of course, is to destroy Christianity in this country. It is essential in fostering communism because communism can only flourish in a Godless nation. Global domination under a brutal, communist, totalitarian force is the ultimate goal.
One world military. That would be all nations troops put under the control of the communist UN.
No more sovereign nations, no more borders. Regionalizing all the nations on the globe while sacking and looting the more prosperous ones, beating them into the ground while subsidizing "poor" countries and enriching brutal dictators around the world. (Obama to donate $400,000 to Charities run by Gadhafi's children – that is OUR money.) Get in the way of the destroyers and you will find yourself on the other end of a US missile or other ordnance full of depleted uranium. Brute force.
If it weren't for other dedicated Americans who also spent decades trying to reach people like me, I would never have found the truth. In the past, there were courageous members of Congress who tried to warn the American people who were not listening back then. It was sex, drugs, rock and roll and good times while the destroyers were hard at work:
Hon. Marjorie S. Holt of Maryland
In the House of Representatives
January 19, 1976, page 240
"Mrs. Holt. Mr. Speaker, many of us recently received a letter from the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, inviting Members of Congress to participate in a ceremonial signing of "A Declaration of Interdependence" on January 30 in Congress Hall, adjacent to Independence Hall in Philadelphia. A number of Members of Congress have been invited to sign this document, lending their prestige to its theme, but I want the record to show my strong opposition to this declaration.
"It calls for surrender of our national sovereignty to international organizations. It declares that our economy should be regulated by international authorities. It proposes that we enter a "new world order" that would redistribute the wealth created by the American people. Mr. Speaker, this is an obscenity that defiles our Declaration of Independence, signed 200 years ago in Philadelphia. We fought a great Revolution for independence and individual liberty, but now it proposed that we participate in a world socialist order.
"Are we a proud and free people, or are we a carcass to be picked by the jackals of the world, who want to destroy us? When one cuts through the high-flown rhetoric of this "Declaration of Interdependence," one finds key phrases that tell the story. For example, it states:
"The economy of all nations is a seamless web, and that no one nation can any longer effectively maintain its processes of production and monetary systems without recognizing the necessity for collaborative regulation by international authorities."
"How do you like the idea of "international authorities" controlling our production and monetary system, Mr. Speaker? How could any American dedicated to our national independence and freedom tolerate such an idea? The declaration goes on to urge a strengthening of the United Nations and a broadening of the jurisdiction of the World Court, "that these may preside over a reign of law that will not only end wars but end as well the mindless violence which terrorizes our society even in times of peace. Examine this closely. It suggests that world government will somehow cure the problems of crime and terrorism, not just the problem of war. Quite obviously, the sponsors of this declaration have lost all contact with reality.
"Mr. Speaker, we have lately witnessed the United Nations organization in full cry against America and her allies of the Free World. We have watched the UN become an instrument of the Soviet Union and its shabby following of despots, large and small. America should never subject her fate to decisions by such an assembly, unless we long for national suicide. Instead, we have independence and freedom."
Marxist Bill Clinton gave many rousing speeches in favor of "interdependence" with other nations and giving up our sovereignty. How about Alvin Toffler, who said, "We need to completely reconsider the structure of the Constitution." The vile, despicable, Newt Gingrich wrote the forward to Toffler's book. Newt was his boy and if you want to know the real Newt Gingrich, read this column. He is what's called the controlled opposition; just like Mitt Romney. Stop throwing money at Gingrich's organization and buying his books.
Gingrich never lifted a finger to get us out of the UN, abolish the privately owned Federal Reserve, or get rid of the unnecessary income tax. He rode the rails to get the largest destroyer of jobs ever to hit this country passed: NAFTA – cheered on by Rush Limbaugh. His cohorts in destroying millions of good jobs and shipping them overseas: Dennis Hastert, Dick Armey, John Boehner, Ron Portman, Tom Daschle, Nancy Pelosi, Christopher Dodd, Ted Kennedy, Joe Lieberman, John Kerry, Joe Biden, Juan McCain, Bob Dole and Mitch McConnell, just to name a few. These "leaders" then shoved the unconstitutional WTO down our throats. We now have 15 MILLION Americans unemployed, but all those fat cats have been well rewarded for their treachery in selling out the American worker.
In 1947, newspapers wrote about a secret new constitution to replace ours. Americans were not paying attention. The war was over; our grand parents and parents were trying to put our country back on track and pursue the American dream. There was no Internet to get the truth to millions at the tap of a key.
1972. Richard Nixon met with Chou En-Lai in Shanghai to cement a new world order. America crawled into bed with the commies. The same communists who were holding our POW/MIAs from the Korean and Viet Nam "conflicts." Only God knows how many are still alive, but those butchers of Beijing had them at the same time Nixon was over there kissing En-Lai's backside and toasting champagne.
As awareness of the diabolical plans afoot began to circulate America, the destroyers wasted no time in implementing plans to force a police state upon us and cover their evil with supposedly "good" government organizations to "help the people". A prime example is the work of Oliver North, darling of the right and a disgrace to his uniform. Under the direction of Ronald Reagan, North drew up plans for martial law using FEMA, a little known agency, but a MAJOR player in the big plan.
North directly helped draft a plan in 1984 to impose martial law in the United States in the event of an emergency. This secret plan would suspend the U.S. Constitution and turn over control of the government to the little known agency at that time: FEMA. This plan would appoint military commanders to run state and local governments. Implementation of this plan would have been triggered by violent and wise spread internal dissent, disagreement with government policy or national opposition to any U.S. military invasion abroad. Essentially, it amounted to a complete and total suspension of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
In anger and shock that a lowly Lt. Col., was actually integral in setting up a shadow government, Attorney General William French Smith resigned.
I know this type of information is very upsetting to people. They don't want to believe it because betrayal is a painful emotion. Unless and until you take the time to do the research and I don't mean just someone's opinion, I mean documented times, dates, places, players and agenda, it's easy to just blow all this off as blathering from conspiracy wing nuts. To do so will be fatal to our republic. Once you do see the big picture, then you will understand why all these monstrous pieces of legislation – cap and trade, "universal" heath care, the water heist bill, five "hate" crime bills on deck right now, gun control and more, are so important to those who control our government. The agenda is now in hyper drive because the cat is out of the bag and the American people are on the march. This will not be tolerated by the elite cabal.
I know many Americans believe that Barack Hussein Obama is just a nice, charismatic, Caucasian/Negro man who worked his way up from middle class to become the leader of the free world. They bought the big lie sold to them by the liars for hire, in the so-called mainstream media and cable networks like MSNBC and CNN. Thankfully, many are beginning to see they bought a defective product. Comrade Obama was groomed from his early years by his communist mentors to be right where the cabal at the top wanted him for many reasons. Attack his policies, and you are a racist. It is the old divide and conquer trap.
The usurper has tried to convince people he's a Christian who spent 20 years in a church which teaches Black Liberation Theology. Marxism wrapped up in a black Jesus. Obama/Soetoro spent a few years in Indonesia and is listed as Muslim for the purpose of school enrollment. That set people off into a tizzy. I have never believed Comrade Obama is a Muslim. He smokes, drinks alcohol, he's bi-sexual, supports killing unborn babies, fought hard to deny babies born alive during an abortion any medical care to keep them alive and champions sodomites and lesbians. All of those things are taboo for Muslims. Personally, I believe the usurper is an atheist just like his mother, Stanley. She was a hard core atheist by age 15 and in Obama's own words, the biggest influence in his life – until Frank Marshall, Jr., got a hold of him.
I know millions of Americans are waking up and becoming active. A little over a year ago, tens of millions of Americans got shocked out of their comfort zones when the manufactured banking crisis hit and the traitors in Congress, led by Pelosi and Reid, and signed off by another new world order lackey, George Bush, Jr., robbed the American people blind with the so called "bail out" legislation. Every single step taken since then has been carefully calculated and it spells even further financial disaster for our nation and people.
But, who is behind it? Who really controls Congress, the White House and the media? Who are "they"? The Bilderberg Group. The Council on Foreign Relations. The Tri-Lateral Commission. Let's start with those. The CFR and Tri-Lateral are the water carriers for the upper crust global elite and bankers, dubbed the Bilderbergers. The group poo-pooed by popular talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. Their agenda IS to destroy this republic and bring America under global world domination. While some of the flunkies from academia and media might protest these two organizations are nothing more than bi-partisan think tanks, those of us who have done the hard, documented research know better.
Here is the most current chart of the CFR members they include the Tri lateralists. Print it out and read the names of those who control everything in Washington, DC and the puppets who dance to their tune. For past membership lists, see here. 2008 is here.
There is a new book out that I put at the top of the list that every American simply must read: The True Story of the Bilderberg Group by Daniel Estulin. I've listed a few more in the links section because they also should be read — but read Daniel's book first. These are the traitors of the world who call themselves the elites. These are the ones who make sure there are endless wars for profit, ensure poor countries stay poor while demanding the fruits of our labor to continue supporting their evil agenda.
The individuals in Daniel's book set policy for our government. They play governments around the world like pieces on a chessboard. The big game. These people are responsible for destroying our economy with their arrogance in attempting to create a one world financial system (Comrade Obama is working on the final details) that is now in shambles. Ah, but they have a solution! Get rid of our dollar and go to a global currency. This would only create another form of debt currency and drag America further into abject poverty. You must know who these people are, even though they don't want you to know their diabolical plans. They want you to stay distracted with the political bickering as their organizations and minions under them continue their work.
The True Story of the Bilderberg Group by Daniel Estulin – Get it, read it and stop supporting these "world leaders, " cabinet members, Supreme Court Justices and members of Congress who are behind the planned destruction of America. Stop supporting the so-called mainstream media that has betrayed America. Stop supporting with your consumer dollars the corporations whose CEOs are part and parcel to this plan for one world government. Patrick Henry said:
"It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts…For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it."
For the sake of our nation, your life, your family and future generations, do not close your eyes to the painful truth.

CRISES – A PATH TO TOTALITARIAN RULE
From the article (STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES)
By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.
Most crises, other than natural, are the inventions of devious minds, they are the tools that have been – and will always be – used to seize power, to circumvent laws, to institute control, and to enable undesirable change. A crisis simply means that some person or a group of people has either created or simulated circumstances to influence some event or to promote a desired activity. Adolph Hitler was a master at creating crises, he promoted a series of such that enabled him to establish a fascist despotic rule over a nation and its people, to institute wars upon sovereign nations, to seize territory, to encourage genocide, and to force his will upon a major portion of the world.
In our own society environmentalists manufacture crises to abridge self-determination, to limit personal prerogatives, and to curtail various lawful activities and technical advances of which they autocratically disapprove. These may be identified by a display of obsessive-compulsive behavior when in the presence of chainsaws, bulldozers and construction equipment; they are only at ease while hugging a tree or in the presence of snail darters
Social do-gooders devise crises of various sort to force their personal, often totally selfish and stupid, desires upon their neighbors, upon those who are culturally different, upon the children of families other than their own, and upon businesses and industries who produce and sell products that they personally deem undesirable or inappropriate. The notable feature of them is that their noses are extraordinarily long, an anomaly born of sticking them into the business of others.
And now we come to the most pestilent, the most dangerous, the most consistent, and the most fearsome perpetuator of false crises – the U.S. government. Most everything that the educated morons of our government carry out – on both the administrative and bureaucratic levels – is born of a crisis predicated upon simulated circumstances. That monstrous boondoggle Obamacare is a case in point.
As stated the bureaucrats have honed crises driven encroachments upon your liberties and freedoms to extraordinary lengths. The Food and Drug Administration – our food and drug Nazis – is an excellent example. The agents of this Gestapo- like outfit limits your choice of non-prescription natural supplements; forces the manufacturers of supplements to remove the effective natural constituents of certain supplements so that the sale of these might not inhibit the sales of prescription meds by their bosom buddies the pharmaceutical barons, and tells you what you can and cannot eat, experience or utilize.
There are many hundreds of examples of such phony crises-driven excesses by the various tyrannical bureaus and agencies, but time and space limits the listing of such. But, I would be remiss if I did not point out the fact that it is those who most often do the bidding of the heretofore referred domestic environmentalists and social do-gooders, who are equally responsible. We are indeed surrounded by idiots.
Because of my lack of linguist skills, I have capitalized on Sheriff Schwiesow’s extraordinary talent to set the stage for this less than polite rant, as a more articulate elucidation of this subject could not be composed by any another person whose work I have read.
One of the great benefits of being an extraordinary writer is in accumulating the love and admiration of thousands of people you have never met. In the case of this old misanthropic curmudgeon, obtaining my respect is a considerable accomplishment, and I freely admit to a considerable amount of respectful admiration for this gifted gentleman. Respect is something I hold in reserve for undeniable excellence. He has commented in a past article that some of his readers complain of his high-faluting vocabulary; but who gives a shit what the dull and ignorant think? His vocabulary is an indication of having an excellent memory and high degree of intelligence; something that seems to be lacking in most Americans these days. Including me.
The reason I got so honked off on Jim’s article today is because it is an excellent entry to a subject that has been rubbing a raw spot in my mind for twenty years now, and in one word, it is manipulation. Now manipulation is something any parent or husband has had plenty of exposure too, but coming from people who have power over me, it is an abomination, as bad as having shingles on my brain. It makes my mind hurt. For the upper class, manipulation has been given a new name to differentiate between personal and social manipulation. They call it the Hegelian dialectic and claim it has three stages, as in: “an interpretive method, originally used to relate specific entities or events to the absolute idea, in which an assertable proposition (thesis) is necessarily opposed by its apparent contradiction (antithesis), and both reconciled on a higher level of truth by a third proposition (synthesis)”
This is like giving your daughters girl friends free condoms to keep them safe, with an objective of promoting a promiscuous behavior, and justifying your constant insulting instructions to your daughter to keep her legs crossed, OR. IF YOUR MEMORY IS ASTUTE, hiring a couple of bank robbers in full body armor to instigate a shoot out with under trained and under equipped police officers, with the objective of changing everyone’s opinion of what kind of attitude and armament the officers should have. The result is, swat teams, and an attitude of disrespect for civilian life. It is also the beginning of, the militarization of our countries local law enforcement, and why you see every cop in town carrying an arsenal around their ample bellies. All of this was nothing more than social manipulation, to produce a social acceptance of fear. Along with the twin towers destruction by the manipulators, and the justification of creating the war on terror, Americans are no longer feeling secure with their law enforcers, or lawmakers, who are hell bent on removing our God given rights to be secure in our own homes and in our travels. Our politicians must all be graduates of the university of manipulation, because the bills passed in the last twenty years has produced a hell of a lot of synthesis, and a nation of damn cowards.
Surely by now the reader can figure out without studying anything that our government is, and has been, for a hundred years, our mortal enemy. Here is a great, simple, and fool proof I.Q. test folks. ARE YOU STILL VOTING?
If so, you have poop for brains, because your votes only assist the manipulators in setting up another crooked politician trained in manipulation, for the destruction of liberty. An informed and active population would never have fallen for the atrocities being forced on us by the scumbag employees of the International Investment Banksters.
The way things stand right now, we are about a year away from the end of the federal reserves 100 year contract, which means it will occur during this scumbag presidents reign, and the Banksters are supporting him with wall street money unlimited. Can you imagine OBAMA, and CONGRESS refusing to renew the banksers contract, when they should be defaulting on the banksters, and telling them to go piss up a rope. The Banksters have Obama by the short hairs folks, and all of congress to boot. So here is the bottom line. We have less than a year left to educate and inspire the majority of this country or bend over and kiss our ass goodbye.
WAKE THE HELL UP!
They know what they are doing, and they will be disarming us this year come hell or high water. Then, we will be facing a bunch of traitorous police officers, and Obama’s brainwashed homeland military, to keep a tight lid on any rebellion. Take this to the bank folks, you will be slaves, and I will be dead by next winter. If you have friends or family in law enforcement or the military, you better inform them of their duty to the people, and to hell with the government.
If any government scumbag snitch is reading this, F you, your congressional representatives, and your nappy-headed Dear Leader!
Sorry Jim, I know you do not associate with, or approve of people like me, but I have had all I can take.
