The Fifty States Claim Update
Yesterday, September 2, in the Three Days of Grace following September 1— the “Time of Resurrection” in the Year of Golden Jubilee— the actual States recorded Non-UCC liens against the bankrupt “State of_______________” organizations.
Those of you who have read “You Know Something Is Wrong When….An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” already know that a mostly foreign-owned corporate entity was formed under the agreements (treaties) ending the Revolutionary War and setting up the original “Constitution”.
The first company formed to “provide essential government services” under this arrangement was The United States (Trading Company) formed by a consortium of old colonial investment companies under the leadership of The Virginia Company. These mostly-British companies continued to provide the nineteen enumerated services stipulated in The Constitution for the united States of America until 1863 when this first version of “United States” was bankrupted by Lincoln.
The next corporate actor on the stage was The United States of America, born 1868. It took over as the service provider at the federal level in that year and published its corporate charter as the look-alike, sound-alike “constitution” called The Constitution of the United States of America.
This corporation was bankrupted and bought out by creditors in 1907 by a consortium of mostly-European banks calling itself “the Federal Reserve” which operated under the name “the United States of America” and the Constitution of the United States of America.
In 1933, FDR bankrupted the United States of America (Inc.) and all the “State of__________” franchisees “pledged” the “good faith and credit of their states and citizens thereof”. Millions upon millions of Americans were falsely presumed to be acting as “United States citizens” and were “attached” as sureties responsible for paying off the debts of this private, mostly foreign-owned corporation from 1933-1999.
Meantime, other service providers were named as successors to the service contract, and in 1944, the UNITED STATES (INC.) fronted by the International Monetary Fund, a French-chartered international banking cartel, began operations on our shores and opened up fifty STATE franchises.
These “STATE OF_____” franchises have created a multitude of Cestui Que Vie trusts named after living Americans and also “International Organizations” named after living Americans and used these as a means to attach and seize upon our assets—- our names, our patents, our copyrights, our land, our homes, our businesses, our very bodies— have been mischaracterized and our identities have been stolen so as to promote fraud and false claims in commerce against us.
In comments made July 4, 2016, President Obama expressed the hope that the Republic would finally prove to be “dead”.
Yesterday we proved that rumors of the Republic’s death have been greatly exaggerated.
With the UNITED STATES, INC. under liquidation and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC. under Chapter 11, the federal side of the original equity contract was “vacated” last year, leaving international trustees — the United Nations— in charge. We protested and made new arrangements for new federal service providers, establishing new Sovereign Letters Patent and issuing a new Declaration of Joint Sovereignty, naming the Native American Nations our international agents for the American States.
This countered any claim that we were not internationally represented and also kept the original Constitution in full force and effect.
The entire aim of the IMF and the FEDERAL RESERVE and numerous other banking interests has been first to defraud and mischaracterize Americans as “United States Citizens” and/or “citizens of the United States” which most of us have never been, tax us and coerce us and charge us under false pretenses, and finally, at the end of the day, mount a “claim on abandonment”—– say that our States of the Union no longer exist, that we all agreed to give them everything in sight, voluntarily, in exchange for “benefits” that we also agreed to pay for.
Sideshow Shinola. Malarkey. Fraud. Attempted Identity Theft of our entire nation.
But yesterday, we supposedly “dead” States of America — the actual States owed the land jurisdiction of this country and every piece of dirt and stick of wood and block of cement standing upon the soil— issued our counterclaim and liened the rats and their trustees up the wazoo.
You may use the attached list of States and file reference numbers to look up the Non-UCC Lien filed for your State of the Union.
You will notice that I am named as the Executor. This is because each Constitution is a Will and it requires an Executor to execute and enforce it. As Priority Creditors, we are claiming the land jurisdiction and assets we are owed and which are insured and must be held harmless from any bankruptcy or liquidation of the “federal” service providers. The Remainder-man States on the land which were released from bankruptcy in 1999 have been re-populated by the grandsons of men who were in turn “grandfathered” into the protections of the original Constitution.
Each one of these men has formally expatriated from any presumption of “United States Citizenship” or being a “citizen of the United States”.
We are not going to endure another round of fraudulent involvement in foreign corporate bankruptcies. We are not going to put up with having foreign commercial mercenary armies operating under color of law on our soil. We are not assuming any debts or paying for any services beyond those which our states actually ordered. And no, we don’t care what happens to the “Federal Reserve” or the “IMF” or the “World Bank” or the “IBRD” or any of these other criminal banking cartels. We and our States of the Union are not their sureties, not their “citizens” and not their chattel.
We are their erstwhile employers, who have been grossly misrepresented, mischaracterized, and defrauded by our own employees.
It is time for this whole con job to end, the odious debts to be discharged, and all Americans to seize back their true identities.
The banking cartels were formed as corporations in order to avoid accountability for their actions. They have breached their charters and breached the public trust and operated as criminal cartels involved in inland piracy, racketeering, unlawful conversion, enslavement, human trafficking, gross fraud based on semantic deceit and more. These institutions deserve to go down in infamy, to be routed out, exposed, and liquidated for the benefit of humanity.
The media and education monopolies which have played footsie with these false “governments” need to be broken up and their assets sold off to American —not foreign interests. Only fools or traitors let foreigners establish monopolies and issue private scripts instead of public money. Only fools or traitors allow foreign corporations to dominate the American airwaves and buy up all the American newspapers, television and radio outlets. Only fools or traitors allow foreign corporations to control public education in America and dominate our universities. Only fools or traitors allow our public courts to be replaced with private courts operating as bill collectors for these same banks and corporations.
What all this adds up to is an attempt by certain parties to return to the days of Feudalism, supported by a virulent form of Commercial Colonialism and criminality that has pillaged humanity since before the Flood.
Now you finally have the chance to recognize it for what it is and put an end to it.
Anna has left a new comment on your post “State UCC Filings — The way you want it“:
There is a separate list of the fifty state filings to be posted yet. It was sent out first as an email attachment.
This action puts an end to any hope or expectation that the banks could succeed in claiming that the land assets of America were “abandoned” by the actual owners and therefore available for seizure by secondary creditors — the banks themselves, the perpetrators of all this fraud against the Americans and virtually everyone else, too.
Having set up the UNITED STATES for liquidation and having placed THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA in Chapter 11 the rats figured they could wash their hands and nobody else— certainly not the victims of this fraud— would speak up and claim back the assets owed the actual states and people.
They thought they would make their false claim of “abandonment” and secure a legal claim on abandonment and use their commercial mercenary armies disguised as legitimate agencies of government to come in here and seize our property— and nobody would be the wiser.
But guess what?
There are now fifty liens against all the land assets of the fifty states and very plain words recorded in the international record.
We aren’t dead or asleep after all. We aren’t putting up with this garbage, criminality, and Breach of Trust anymore. We are done paying debts we don’t owe for the enrichment of con artists who have been bilking the entire world.
We hear that Jacob Rothschild has a personal fortune of 500 trillion dollars. Now you know how he got it. And you also know that it is all nothing but paper and lies and the fruit of labor and assets belonging to others and to their sons and daughters who have been mischaracterized by these bankers and cheated and defrauded and murdered by the billions by these freaks.
And for what? Digits on a ledger.
Go to the nearest computer and type in “500” and then thirteen zeroes after that. See that number?
That number represents the billions of lives ruined, lost, maimed, spent in needless poverty, sickness, forced labor, ignorance, and want. It represents every wounded and dying soldier from 780 AD onward.
It is a representation of just part of what these demons have stolen from humanity.
And it is NOT just Jacob Rothschild responsible. In the barrel of rotten banker apples he may be the wealthiest but he is far from the worst.
The time has come to realize just how badly you have been treated, how completely you have been deluded. Wake up! You have traded everything worthwhile in life for worthless pieces of paper and numbers on a ledger kept by thieves and con men.
No wonder they are laughing and cutting deals “in your behalf” and calling you “livestock” and planning to slaughter their creditors— you and your families— to avoid paying back what they owe you all. Wake up!
You have got to wake up now. You must tell your brothers and sisters throughout the world. You must bring forward your claims and make them stick. You must hold the bankers and politicians and members of the Bar Assiciations accountable for this.
And the Roman Pontiff, too.
Take an interest and lend a hand. Expose the rats. Do it now.

Infographic illustrating the attributes of the average American gun owner.
The United States has 88.8 guns per 100 people, or about 270,000,000 guns, which is the highest total and per capita number in the world. 22% of Americans own one or more guns (35% of men and 12% of women). America’s pervasive gun culture stems in part from its colonial history, revolutionary roots, frontier expansion, and the Second Amendment, which states: “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.”
Proponents of more gun control laws state that the Second Amendment was intended for militias; that gun violence would be reduced; that gun restrictions have always existed; and that a majority of Americans, including gun owners, support new gun restrictions.
Opponents say that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own guns; that guns are needed for self-defense from threats ranging from local criminals to foreign invaders; and that gun ownership deters crime rather than causes more crime.
Guns in Colonial and Revolutionary America
Guns were common in the American Colonies, first for hunting and general self-protection and later as weapons in the American Revolutionary War.  Several colonies’ gun laws required that heads of households (including women) own guns and that all able-bodied men enroll in the militia and carry personal firearms. 
Some laws, including in Connecticut (1643) and at least five other colonies, required “at least one adult man in every house to carry a gun to church or other public meetings” in order to protect against attacks by Native Americans; prevent theft of firearms from unattended homes; and, as a 1743 South Carolina law stated, safeguard against “insurrections and other wicked attempts of Negroes and other Slaves.”  Other laws required immigrants to own guns in order to immigrate or own land. 
The Second Amendment of the US Constitution was ratified on Dec. 15, 1791. The notes from the Constitutional Convention do not mention an individual right to a gun for self-defense.  Some historians suggest that the idea of an individual versus a collective right would not have occurred to the Founding Fathers because the two were intertwined and inseparable: there was an individual right in order to fulfill the collective right of serving in the militia.  
Although guns were common in colonial and revolutionary America, so were gun restrictions. Laws included banning the sale of guns to Native Americans (though colonists frequently traded guns with Native Americans for goods such as corn and fur); banning indentured servants (mainly the Irish) and slaves from owning guns; and exempting a variety of professions from owning guns (including doctors, school masters, lawyers, and millers).

A 1792 federal law required that every man eligible for militia service own a gun and ammunition suitable for military service, report for frequent inspection of their guns, and register his gun ownership on public records.  Many Americans owned hunting rifles or pistols instead of proper military guns, and even though the penalty fines were high (over $9,000 in 2014 dollars), they were levied inconsistently and the public largely ignored the law.  
State Gun Laws: Slave Codes and the “Wild West”
From the 1700s through the 1800s, so-called “slave codes” and, after slavery was abolished in 1865, “black codes” (and, still later, “Jim Crow” laws) prohibited black people from owning guns and laws allowing the ownership of guns frequently specified “free white men.”  For example, an 1833 Georgia law stated, “it shall not be lawful for any free person of colour in this state, to own, use, or carry fire arms of any description whatever… that the free person of colour, so detected in owning, using, or carrying fire arms, shall receive upon his bare back, thirty-nine lashes, and that the fire arm so found in the possession of said free person of colour, shall be exposed for public sale.” 
Despite images of the “Wild West” from movies, cities in the frontier often required visitors to check their guns with the sheriff before entering the town.  In Oct. 1876, Deadwood, Dakota Territory passed a law stating that no one could fire a gun without the mayor’s consent.  A sign in Dodge City, Kansas in 1879 read, “The Carrying of Fire Arms Strictly Prohibited.”  The first law passed in Dodge City was a gun control law that read “any person or persons found carrying concealed weapons in the city of Dodge or violating the laws of the State shall be dealt with according to law.” 
Federal Gun Laws in the 1900s
The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre on Feb. 14, 1929 in Chicago resulted in the deaths of seven gangsters associated with “Bugs” Moran (an enemy of Al Capone) and set off a series of debates and laws to ban machine guns.   Originally enacted in 1934 in response to mafia crimes, the National Firearms Act (NFA) imposes a $200 tax and a registration requirement on the making and transfer of certain guns, including shotguns and rifles with barrels shorter than 18 inches (“short-barreled”), machine guns, firearm mufflers and silencers, and specific firearms labeled as “any other weapons” by the NFA.   Most guns are excluded from the Act.
The Federal Firearms Act of 1938 made it illegal to sell guns to certain people (including convicted felons) and required federal firearms licensees (FFLs; people who are licensed by the federal government to sell firearms) to maintain customer records.  This Act was overturned by the 1968 Gun Control Act.

In 1968 the National Firearms Act was revised to address constitutionality concerns brought up by Haynes v. US (1968), namely that unregistered firearms already in possession of the owner do not have to be registered, and information obtained from NFA applications and registrations cannot be used as evidence in a criminal trial when the crime occurred before or during the filing of the paperwork. 
On Oct. 22, 1968, prompted by the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy (1963), Malcolm X (1965), Martin Luther King, Jr. (1968), and Robert F. Kennedy (1968), as well as the 1966 University of Texas mass shooting, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) into law.  The GCA regulates interstate gun commerce, prohibiting interstate transfer unless completed among licensed manufacturers, importers, and dealers, and restricts gun ownership. 
The Firearm Owners’ Protection Act of 1986 (FOPA) revised prior legislation once again.   The Act, among other revisions to prior laws, allowed gun dealers to sell guns away from the address listed on their license; limited the number of inspections the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (now the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) could perform without a warrant; prevented the federal government from maintaining a database of gun dealer records; and removed the requirement that gun dealers keep track of ammunition sales. 
The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 (also called the Brady Act) was signed into law on Nov. 30, 1993 and required a five-day waiting period for a licensed seller to hand over a gun to an unlicensed person in states without an alternate background check system.  The five-day waiting period has since been replaced by an instant background check system that can take up to three days if there is an inconsistency or more information is needed to complete the sale.  Gun owners who have a federal firearms license or a state-issued permit are exempt from the waiting period. 
The Federal Assault Weapons Ban (Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act), part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on Sep. 13, 1994. The ban outlawed 19 models of semi-automatic assault weapons by name and others by “military features,” as well as large-capacity magazines manufactured after the law’s enactment.  The ban expired on Sep. 13, 2004 and was not renewed due in part to NRA lobbying efforts.  
Federal and State Gun Laws in the 2000s
Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act and Child Safety Lock Act of 2005 was enacted on Oct. 26 by President George W. Bush and gives broad civil liability immunity to firearms manufacturers so they cannot be sued by a gun death victim’s family.   The Child Safety Lock Act requires that all handguns be sold with a “secure gun storage or safety device.”
The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Improvement Amendments Act of 2007 was enacted as a condition of the Brady Act and provides incentives to states (including grants from the Attorney General) for them to provide information to NICS including information on people who are prohibited from purchasing firearms.  The NCIS was implemented on Nov. 30, 1998 and later amended on Jan. 8, 2008 in response to the Apr. 16, 2007 Virginia Technical University shooting so that the Attorney General could more easily acquire information pertinent to background checks such as disqualifying mental conditions. 
On Jan. 5, 2016, President Obama announced new executive actions on gun control. His measures take effect immediately and include: an update and expansion of background checks (closing the “gun show loophole”); the addition of 200 ATF agents; increased mental health care funding; $4 million and personnel to enhance the National Integrated Ballistics Information Network (used to link crimes in one jurisdiction to ballistics evidence in another); creating an Internet Investigations Center to track illegal online gun trafficking; a new Department of Health and Human Services rule saying that it is not a HIPAA violation to report mental health information to the background check system; a new requirement to report gun thefts; new research funding for gun safety technologies; and more funding to train law enforcement officers on preventing gun casualties in domestic violence cases.

In addition to federal gun laws, each state has its own set of gun laws ranging from California with the most restrictive gun laws in the country to Arizona with the most lenient, according to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the Brady Campaign’s “2013 State Scorecard.” . 43 of 50 states have a “right to bear arms” clause in their state constitutions. 
The most common state gun control laws include background checks, waiting periods, and registration requirements to purchase or sell guns.   Most states prevent carrying guns, including people with a concealed carry permit, on K-12 school grounds and many states prevent carrying on college campuses.   Some states ban assault weapons.  
Gun rights laws include concealed and open carry permits, as well as allowing gun carry in usually restricted areas (such as bars, K-12 schools, state parks, and parking areas).   Many states have “shoot first” (also called “stand your ground”) laws.   Open carry of handguns is generally allowed in most states (though a permit may be required).  
Collective v. Individual Right: Guns and the Supreme Court
Until 2008, the Supreme Court repeatedly upheld a collective right (that the right to own guns is for the purpose of maintaining a militia) view of the Second Amendment, concluding that the states may form militias and regulate guns. 
The first time the Court upheld an individual rights interpretation (that individuals have a Constitutional right to own a gun regardless of militia service) of the Second Amendment was the June 26, 2008 US Supreme Court ruling in DC v. Heller. The Court stated that the right could be limited: “There seems to us no doubt, on the basis of both text and history, that the Second Amendment conferred an individual right to keep and bear arms. Of course the right was not unlimited… Thus we do not read the Second Amendment to protect the right of citizens to carry arms for any sort of confrontation, just as we do not read the First Amendment to protect the right of citizens to speak for any purpose.”

The US Supreme Court ruled on June 28, 2010 in McDonald v. Chicago that the Fourteenth Amendment, specifically the Due Process Clause, includes the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms and, thus, the Second Amendment applies to the states as well as the federal government, effectively extending the individual rights interpretation of the Second Amendment to the states. 
On June 27, 2016, in Voisine v. United States, the Supreme Court ruled (6-2) that someone convicted of “recklessly” committing a violent domestic assault can be disqualified from owning a gun under the 1996 Lautenberg Amendment to the 1968 Gun Control Act. Associate Justice Elena Kagan, JD, writing the majority opinion, stated: “Congress enacted §922(g)(9) [the Lautenberg Amendment] in 1996 to bar those domestic abusers convicted of garden-variety assault or battery misdemeanors–just like those convicted of felonies–from owning guns.”    
The National Rifle Association (NRA)
The National Rifle Association calls itself “America’s longest-standing civil rights organization.”  Granted charter on Nov. 17, 1871 in New York, Civil War Union veterans Colonel William C. Church and General George Wingate founded the NRA to “promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis” to improve the marksmanship of Union troops.  General Ambrose Burnside, governor of Rhode Island (1866 to 1869) and US Senator (Mar. 4, 1875 to Sep. 13, 1881), was the first president.  
Over 100 years later, in 1977, in what is known as the “Revolt at Cincinnati,” new leadership changed the bylaws to make the protection of the Second Amendment right to bear arms the primary focus (ousting the focus on sportsmanship).   The group lobbied to disassemble the Gun Control Act of 1968 (the NRA alleged the Act gave power to the ATF that was abused), which they accomplished in 1986 with the Firearms Owners Protection Act. 
In 1993 the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) funded a study completed by Arthur Kellerman and colleagues, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, titled “Gun Ownership as a Risk Factor in the Home,” which found that keeping a gun at home increased the risk of homicide.    The NRA accused the CDC of “promoting the idea that gun ownership was a disease that needed to be eradicated,” and argued that government funding should not be available to politically motivated studies.    The NRA notched a victory when Congress passed the Dickey Amendment, which deducted $2.6 billion from the CDC’s budget, the exact amount of its gun research program, and restricted CDC (and, later, NIH) gun research.    The amendment stated that “none of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.”    The admonition effectively stopped all federal gun research because, as Kellerman stated, “[p]recisely what was or was not permitted under the clause was unclear. But no federal employee was willing to risk his or her career or the agency’s funding to find out.”  Jay Dickey (R-AR), now retired from Congress, was the author of the Dickey Amendment and has since stated that he no longer supports the amendment: “I wish we had started the proper research and kept it going all this time… I have regrets.” 
As of Jan. 2013, the NRA had approximately 3 million members, though estimates have varied from 2.6 million to 5 million members.  In 2013 the NRA spending budget was $290.6 million.  The NRA-ILA actively lobbies against universal checks and registration, “large” magazine and “assault weapons” bans, requiring smart gun features, ballistic fingerprinting, firearm traces, and prohibiting people on the terrorist watchlist from owning guns; and in favor of self-defense (stand your ground) laws.  In 2014 the NRA and NRA-ILA spent $3.36 million on lobbying activity aimed primarily at Congress but also the US Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Army Corps of Engineers, and the Forest Service. 
09 01 16 The Gun Control Lobby
The start of the modern gun control movement is largely attributed to Mark Borinsky, PhD, who founded the National Center to Control Handguns (NCCH) in 1974.  After being the victim of an armed robbery, Borinsky looked for a gun control group to join but found none, founded NCCH, and worked to grow the organization with Edward O. Welles, a retired CIA officer, and N.T. “Pete” Shields, a Du Pont executive whose son was shot and killed in 1975.

In 2001, after a few name changes, the National Center to Control Handguns (NCCH) was renamed the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and its sister organization, the Center to Prevent Handgun Violence, was renamed the Brady Center to Prevent Handgun Violence, though they are often referred to collectively as the Brady Campaign.  The groups were named for Jim Brady, a press secretary to President Ronald Reagan who was shot and permanently disabled on Mar. 30, 1981 during an assassination attempt on the President. 
The 2014 gun control lobby was composed of Everytown for Gun Safety, Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, Sandy Hook Promise, Americans for Responsible Solutions, and Violence Policy Center.  Collectively, these groups spent $1.94 million in 2014, primarily aimed at Congress but also the Executive Office of the President, the Vice President, the White House, Department of Justice, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. 
The most-recently available total annual spending budgets for gun control groups were $13.7 million collectively (4.7% of the NRA’s 2013 budget): including Everytown for Gun Safety ($4.7 million in 2012); the Brady Campaign ($2.7 million in 2012); the Brady Center ($3.1 million in 2010); Coalition to Stop Gun Violence ($308,761 in 2011); Sandy Hook Promise ($2.2 million in 2013); and the Violence Policy Center ($750,311 in 2012). 
The Current Gun Control Debate
Largely, the current public gun control debate in the United States occurs after a major mass shooting. There were at least 126 mass shootings between Jan. 2000 and July 2014.   Proponents of more gun control often want more laws to try to prevent the mass shootings and call for smart gun laws, background checks, and more protections against the mentally ill buying guns. Opponents of more gun laws accuse proponents of using a tragedy to further a lost cause, stating that more laws would not have prevented the shootings. A Dec. 10, 2014 Pew Research Center survey found 52% of Americans believe the right to own guns should be protected while 46% believe gun ownership should be controlled, a switch from 1993 when 34% wanted gun rights protected and 57% wanted gun ownership controlled. 
Since the corporate government we have been suckered into accepting, due to mind altering media bios, and education, I contend that very few people in America see the real issue and have been influenced in many sub-conscious ways so they are no longer capable of understanding the reality of this issue.
To wit: our government is not the only real threat to our natural right to independent decision making, as our real government was subverted many years ago by the International Investment Banking Cartel who have every since practiced mind control as a weapon to destroy our understanding of societal responsibilities. They have used every weapon in the book to control what we think and believe and only those few who had the natural instinct to know something was very wrong, and took it upon their-self to research the issue, have any idea of just how dangerous we have become to our own freedom from tyranny.
The issue of allowing the government to decide if we have natural rights is insanity at its worse.
Who of you reading this is arrogant enough to support gun control in light of this present dysfunctional society, and tyrannical government?
The day is coming when you will all, and I mean every damn one of you, beg your neighbor for a weapon; if you don’t steal it from them first! It is not the gangs, or gun nuts like myself, or organized criminals, you should be afraid of, it’s the government you worship that will kill you. It all boils down to this, gun haters are like ass-holes without toilet paper.
September 2nd, 2016 by olddog
By Tom DeWeese –
Many of the younger generation must be truly bewildered over the emotions older Americans display when expressing love, devotion, respect and reverence for our country. A tear in the eye for a patriotic song… a hand over the heart as the national anthem plays… a salute to the flag as it passes in a parade. Why would we older folks do that?
What frame of reference could younger Americans possibly have? Patriotism, nationalism – even American citizenship are taboo in today’s school curriculum. Globalism, diversity, and political correctness trump real history, sound economics, and science. Communism is just another economic system. The Founding Fathers are simply old, dead slave-owning white guys. The UN’s Declaration on Human Rights trumps the Declaration of Independence.
Where are the heroes for today’s young people to admire? Principled leaders who understood the roots of America’s greatness now are replaced by blow-dried sound-byte kings whose professional campaign staffs understand only how to maneuver a special interest group or a voting block.
How can young people make decisions in the voting booth? Who can they choose? Are there any candidates who offer anything other than meaningless gibberish? If today’s young people could learn some of the history that brings the older generation a sense of pride then they could be helped to understand that ordinary people in history knew that there were life principles worth sacrificing or even dying for. Perhaps they could help demand a better future for themselves.
Here are three little known examples from three separate eras of our nation’s history which demonstrate how Americans once thought. They are examples of how we as a nation once stood proud, ready to defend ideals to the death if necessary. And these examples clearly show why the rest of the world understood that such unwavering devotion to those ideals meant our word was true. Our steadfast principles of freedom clearly showed the rest of the world that America offered the human race something different, something wonderful. Our unmatched freedoms meant that Americans were more secure, more prosperous and happier than any people in history.
Perhaps, through the following examples, today’s young Americans will understand that the tear in an eye or the hand over a heart expressed by the older generation wasn’t for a flag or a song. That show of emotion is really for the brave actions taken by the men and women which resulted in making the flags and the songs symbols of freedom.
Thomas Nelson, Jr.
Thomas Nelson, Jr. was born and raised in a wealthy family in Yorktown, Virginia. Educated in England, he was elected to the House of Burgesses in 1761. He loved everything British and was proud to be a British subject. That is until King George decided that his American subjects were good for little more than a revenue source to pay for his wars with France. The King imposed the hated Stamp Act on the American colonies and Nelson became a dedicated opponent. He believed he had rights to his own hard-earned money and he believed it was wrong to impose the tax when he had virtually no say in the matter. Such was the foundation of the American Revolution. It mattered.
Soon Nelson was elected to represent Virginia in the Continental Congress where he became one of fifty-six men to sign the Declaration of Independence. By adding his name to the bottom of the document he pledged his life, fortune and sacred honor. In other words Nelson and his fifty-five colleagues gambled everything in exchange for the ability to live their lives in freedom.
Thomas Nelson, Jr. backed up that pledge by becoming a brigadier general in George Washington’s army. But he did more than just fight. He used his own fortune to help Washington fund the army. His money helped make payrolls for the men who needed it for their families back home. His contributions to help keep the army on the battlefield would have equaled $2 million today.
Finally, in the last battle of the war Nelson found himself commanding troops outside his own hometown of Yorktown. As Washington laid siege to the British-held town, Nelson watched as a cannon battery continually missed an important target. It was British General Cornwallis’ command post. Nelson inquired of the troops why they weren’t shooting at the house. “Because,” they said, “it’s your house.” Nelson said, “give me the torch.” He then fired the first cannon aimed at his own home and gave the order for the other cannon to fire at the target as well. The home was destroyed. Not long after, Cornwallis surrendered and the United States was born.
For his service, Nelson died a pauper as his health and fortune were wrecked by the war. Thomas Nelson, Jr. made the sacrifice because he believed freedom was more important than comfort and material wealth. He was not alone as almost all signers of the Declaration of Independence met similar fates. Some died in the war effort. Many lost their fortunes. Some even lost their “sacred honor.” They did it so that future generations might live a better life.
Francis Scott Key
Most young people today think of the Star Spangled Banner as simply a hard song to sing before sporting events. To them, its curious words about bombs bursting in air and flags flying just sound like a Fourth of July party. Where’s the beer? Play ball.
But the words mean much more. The song’s lyrics are actually a testimony to sacrifice, death and courage. Francis Scott Key personally witnessed the events described in the song and wrote what he saw as it was happening.
Key was an attorney who lived in Washington, D.C. during the War of 1812. Again the United States was at war with Great Britain. The British had never really gotten over losing the American colonies. In the 20 years since Cornwallis had surrendered at Yorktown, they had continually harassed American ships on the high seas. The U.S. tried diplomacy to solve the problems as the country sought to freely and honestly trade with both England and France. Peace was the goal of the young nation.
But American ships seeking trade with Europe faced blockades by the British, who dominated the seas with their vast fleet, the largest in the world. In addition to preventing trade, the British claimed the right to take their sailors off the American ships. The problem was, they also took American sailors, making them serve against their will on British ships. Finally, the Americans had enough. Diplomacy wasn’t working. American lives and freedoms were being threatened. So the U.S. Government declared war on the British, again.
It didn’t go well for the Americans. The British used their vast sea power to attack the United States. First the fleet sailed up the Hudson River to control New York. They launched an attack on New Orleans, gaining control of the Mississippi. And then they sailed up the Chesapeake, into the Potomac to invade Washington D.C. With little resistance, the British ransacked the Capital city, burning buildings, including the White House. First Lady Dolly Madison was able to escape with little more than the Declaration of Independence. As the Americans were forced to flee, the British fleet set its sights on the next target, one of the nation’s most prosperous cities, Baltimore – just a short trip up the Chesapeake. It was meant to be the final victory before reestablishing the Americans as British subjects.
Meanwhile, as the ships wreaked havoc from the sea, British troops were on the ground in countless towns and villages, arresting American citizens and putting them in makeshift jails or on prison ships. The Americans were not happy having these occupying troops in their communities and tried to fight back. In the small community of Upper Marlborough, Maryland two drunken British soldiers were arrested by Dr. William Beanes and thrown into jail. One escaped, caught up to his unit and reported what had happened. The British returned to the town, released their soldier and arrested Dr. Beanes.
Enter Francis Scott Key. The people of Upper Marlborough enlisted Key to help free Dr. Beanes who was now being held in the hold of a prison ship in Baltimore harbor. Key was allowed on the ship and taken to the prison hold. There he found the ship packed with American prisoners, including Beanes. Key met with Rear Admiral Sir George Cockburn to negotiate a prisoner exchange in hopes of freeing all of the Americas. At first Cockburn agreed and Key went below to tell the men they would soon be released.
As the two men met on the deck of the ship, Cockburn told him that, yes the men would soon be released, but not through a prisoner exchange. They would be released, he said, because the war will be over. Then Cockburn pointed down the bay where Key saw hundreds of British ships sailing toward them. “That,” said Cockburn, “is the entire British fleet. They are coming here to take Fort McHenry.” The fort was the last strong hold of the Americans and it protected Baltimore. Its fall would assure the final British victory and the end of the United States.
Key was held on the ship, unable to leave until the battle was over. The bombardment began at dusk in a deafening roar of cannon fire from a hundred ships which stayed outside the range of Fort McHenry’s guns. As the fleet opened fire on the fort, the men held in chains below deck wanted to know what was happening. Key reported what he saw throughout the battle.
Waving from the fort was a large American flag. As night began to fall, the bombs from the British fleet burst through the air. The last thing anyone could see in the twilight’s last gleaming was the flag defiantly flying over the fort. Throughout the night the prisoners called out, “is it still flying.” No matter how many bombs seemed to hit the flag, it continued to fly. Finally, in frustration, the British fleet trained all of its guns on the flag, determined to bring it and the American’s defiance down in a heap. Still it flew.
In the morning the guns stopped. In the dawn’s early light all saw that the flag still flew and the fort remained in American hands. Eventually, the fleet sailed away. Key was released. According to some reports, Key rushed to the fort and there he saw what had happened. The flagpole, say the reports, had been hit numerous times. Some have reported that around the base of the flag were numerous bodies of American soldiers and citizens. Throughout the night, it is said, they had sacrificed themselves to keep the flag waving. As the flagpole splintered from the direct hits it suffered, men rushed out and held up the flag, becoming human flagpoles. One by one, as each was cut down by the bombs bursting in air, another rushed out to take his place.
The nation survived and America became a shining symbol to the world as the land of the free. And the men of Fort McHenry proved it was also the home of the brave.
William Barret Travis
In the winter and early spring of 1836, war raged throughout what is now the State of Texas. Mexico, led by General Santa Anna wanted to control the territory. Santa Anna was a pompous, brutal dictator who had terrorized the citizens, murdering at will, and taking property at his whim. The Texans wanted to be free of him. In a recent battle they had managed to free the town of San Antonio of his rule. Now he wanted it back.
So, Santa Anna began a march on San Antonio with more that 1,000 troops, determined to prove that resistance to his rule was futile. On February 23rd, about 145 Texans under the command of William Barret Travis rushed into a mission called the Alamo. Soon they were surrounded. Travis put out a call for reinforcements, saying, “I am besieged by a thousand or more Mexicans… I have sustained a continual bombardment and cannonade for 24 hours… The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise the garrison are to be put to the sword if the fort is taken.”
Over the following two weeks, the Mexican forces continually strengthened to over 2,000. Answering Travis’s call, a few reinforcements for the Texans were able to break through the lines and build the garrison to 189. Famed frontiersman and former Congressman Davy Crockett arrived with 15 good men from Tennessee. Another famous frontiersman, Jim Bowie was there. There were 30 volunteers from South Carolina, ready to fight with their native son, Travis. More than 81 volunteers were from different countries including England, Scotland, Germany, Ireland and various U.S. states.
Finally, as it became apparent that no large group of reinforcements would be able to come to their aid, Travis called a meeting of the men and told them they were free to leave and save themselves. He took out his sword and drew a line in the sand. He said, if you choose to stay, cross that line. To a man they crossed, determined to stay and fight the Santa Anna tyranny.
After constant bombardment from the Mexican guns, the men inside the Alamo heard a certain bugle signal. It was the command to Santa Anna’s troops to charge and take no prisoners. The men in the Alamo fought to the last man. Travis was one of the first to fall, on the north wall where the main assault occurred. He was 26. Jim Bowie, ill on a stretcher, was killed in a small room on the south side. He was 41. And Davy Crockett’s body was found in a small fort on the west side, surrounded by a pile of dead Mexicans. He was 50 years old.
189 Texans died that day but they took 600 Mexicans with them. The Alamo had fallen, but their courage allowed Texas General Sam Houston the time he needed to raise an army and meet Santa Anna only forty six days later. As Houston’s men charged, they shouted, “Remember the Alamo.” The battle lasted only 18 minutes. The Texans killed 630 of Santa Anna’s men, and captured 730, literally destroying his army. The next day, General Santa Anna was captured, disguised as a peasant. His rule was finished and Texas had won its independence, because 189 heroes had offered their lives in a belief that preserving freedom was more important than living life under tyranny.
Making Sense Of It All
American history is full of stories of sacrifice and heroism in the name of preserving freedom. They were called patriots and they didn’t sacrifice to build the power of government, or to enrich the pockets of a select power elite or to promote one group over another. They did it so they could live their lives in peace, unencumbered and left alone.
Today, our young people are taught in government classrooms that these ideals are old fashioned, quaint and, in many cases just plain wrong. Patriotism is racism, we’re told by modern scholars. Property ownership is selfish, a social injustice. Children are taught that our free society is the root of the Earth’s destruction and must be dismantled through a tightly controlled, organized global village. The Constitution, say some the scholars, is a living document, changeable on a whim. The Declaration of Independence, which Dolly Madison risked everything to save, is just a “war document from the Revolution.” Nothing more.
Yesterday’s patriots have been replaced by politicians who pander to special interests, as they fill their pockets with money in exchange for deals, privilege and power. A foreign policy based on honest trade, avoiding “entangling alliances,” has been replaced with our military meddling in over one hundred countries, as we impose economic and personal values where they aren’t wanted. America today is guilty of the very same kind of “nation building” we fought King George to end. Now America finds itself hated and non-respected, assuring American citizens are unsafe on every street corner in the world.
America needs leadership which understands and reveres our roots and the history it took to mold this nation. But who can our young people look to for such ideas? Who among the politicians and self-appointed leaders of our nation would make such sacrifices? Who among them would even advocate such an attitude?
Would Hillary Clinton stand on the front lines in defense of this nation and order her own home destroyed for freedom’s sake? Would Barack Obama stand on the North wall and fight to the death to stop an invasion of the country? Of course not. In fact, both of these “leaders” have actually thrown open the door of Fortress America and are calling for those very descendents of the original invaders of the Alamo to “come on over.” William Travis would have shot them.
Today, instead of statesmen who serve our country out of love and loyalty for its ideals; or leaders who deal with other nations under the guideline of “does it serve the just interest of the United States”, we have politicians looking for a deal. Will it sound good to a certain voter block? Will it make me look good on television? Can I get a leg up on the other candidates if I propose this?
Today’s politicians such as Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders propose vast policy programs costing billions of dollars with no concern of where the money is coming from. They grab private land, displace families and regulate private business out of existence in the name of social justice. Meanwhile, House Speaker John Boehner, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the ones we count on to stand in defense of our Constitutional system, join right in, refusing to take action to even slow down the growth and cost of these massive government schemes.
What are the real issues on the minds of the American public? Too-high taxes; ever-creeping government intrusion in our lives; unprotected borders; over 60% say they want us out of the UN; growing corporate power; reduced standard of living; the fall of the dollar and less buying power; massive government debt; high energy prices. These issues affect every single American and we want someone to speak for us.
Yet not one of these issues is being addressed by most of the candidates for president. Instead we have great debates on the so called “War on Women,” racial disparity, and whether or not Donald Trump is too mean to run for president. Each of these issues is a hot button for specific special interest groups which are piling money into campaign coffers. The average American could care less about any of them, yet these are the debates of the day while the real issues are ignored.
Instead of addressing real issues, political campaigns have become little more than an exercise in character assassination of opponents in an attempt to get a leg up in the public. The mainstream news media has become the lap dog for the big government ideology.
These politicians would never be trusted on the front lines next to the heroes of the Alamo or Thomas Nelson, Jr. None would ever inspire a single lyric by Key. And they are not worthy of being elected to lead the country these heroes helped create.
But there are still patriots in our nation who are fighting a desperate fight to preserve our freedoms. Some are just citizens who see the wrongs and take local action to fight them. They show up at city council and county commission meetings to express their opposition to policies that affect property and taxes and quality of life. They work tirelessly, producing materials, working in political campaigns, and getting in front of microphones wherever they can. Though just an unorganized, unfunded rag tag band, these freedom fighters are beginning to make an impact and the big government forces are starting to nervously take notice.
Some of the best I’ve had the privilege to work with – to name just a tiny few, include Sheriff Richard Mack, who travels the nation teaching county sheriffs that they are the first line of defense against an oppressive central government. KrisAnne Hall, who travels over 265 days a year to teach Americans the power and justice of the Constitution. Pastor Chuck Baldwin, whose writings demand we think with common sense. And John Anthony, who is one of the very best in teaching local residents how to deal with invading planners as they attempt to transform our communities into socialist utopias.
Others decide to take the big step of running for office. Perhaps they were just local activists to start with, but decided that the cause needed elected representatives that can really make a difference from the inside. In the past couple of years, barely a week goes by without my hearing from new, dedicated representatives who ask me what they can do to take effective action to stop the growing tyranny.
Again, I’ve had the great privilege to not only work with some of these great patriots, but to call them my friend. One of the very first to stand, unwavering against the massive growth and corruption of local government is Carroll County, Maryland Commissioner Richard Rothschild. Even as he is attacked in the news media and falsely labeled a danger to the future of his community, he stands, many times alone, for the principles of freedom. As powerful forces work to remove him, he stands, like Travis on the wall, and refuses to back down.
In the state legislature of Washington stands Representative Matt Shea. In one of the most liberal states in the Union, Rep. Shea has organized a Freedom Team of legislators to fight for limited government and the ideals of freedom. In the past two sessions they have introduced over 100 bills, all aimed at limiting the size, cost, reach and power of government. They have managed to pass about thirty of these into law. Matt Shea and Richard Rothschild are the models for us all. And they are unwavering patriots.
There are many others, in every state, who are beginning to make their efforts felt in the cause to preserve freedom. They understand that private property ownership is the key to prosperity. They had seen that the more powerful the government control, the more corruption, and that it is government itself that must be controlled. And they are becoming a growing force. Their courage is an inspiration.
Matt Shea would order the destruction of his own home if it meant one American would be free. Richard Rothschild would stand on that wall of the Alamo to the last. He already has in our modern day fight. And Kris Anne Hall would sing the glory of the heroes of Fort McHenry. She does it every day.
As your children seek to understand why we older folks get a tear in our eye and a swell of pride in hearts as we hear the songs and see the flags flying – symbols of the incredible sacrifice so many suffered just to defend our freedom – they need look no further than these modern day heroes. Patriots still exist among us and they are still fighting the same tyranny as our Founders, and for the same reasons. We should all stand together so that our children and our children’s children will have a life of their own choosing. It’s that simple.
When I hear or read the word patriot, I remember the time when I felt like Tom has described above, but now that I am no longer ignorant of how Americans have been brain washed and the atrocities we have committed in the name of patriotism, I feel sorry for those who still feel compelled to follow the orders of psychopaths. Take this to the bank folks, the only people who deserve to die are the ones you are worshipping, and their Masters; the International Investment Central Banking Cartel. THEY ARE THE SCUM OF THE EARTH! Of course I do justify murder as in self defense, and any intelligent and informed person would conclude that the very people who we are allowing to establish our laws and enforce them are also our enemies. And the only loyalty they have is to the Cartel. Where do you think all the billions of dollars go too besides these bastards who pretend to be our leaders? It cost the Cartel huge amounts of money to have so many loyal employees. If you are a cop, you’re so ignorant you don’t even know who you are really WORKING FOR. Read and learn folks, before you commit your life to tyrants. All of your good intentions are proof you are brain washed. In reality, the America we loved so much was a damn lie. It’s the biggest con in history. It’s like loving a wife who is a whore behind your back. While you work your ass off to give her all the things she wants, she’s screwing your friends and salting the money away. Good intentions without knowledge is like a limp dick.

Do you smirk when you hear someone question the official stories of Orlando, San Bernardino, Paris or Nice? Do you feel superior to 2,500 architects and engineers, to firefighters, commercial and military pilots, physicists and chemists, and former high government officials who have raised doubts about 9/11? If so, you reflect the profile of a mind-controlled CIA stooge.
The term “conspiracy theory” was invented and put into public discourse by the CIA in 1964 in order to discredit the many skeptics who challenged the Warren Commission’s conclusion that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald, who himself was assassinated while in police custody before he could be questioned. The CIA used its friends in the media to launch a campaign to make suspicion of the Warren Commission report a target of ridicule and hostility. This campaign was “one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.”
So writes political science professor Lance deHaven-Smith, who in his peer-reviewed book, Conspiracy Theory in America, published by the University of Texas Press, tells the story of how the CIA succeeded in creating in the public mind reflexive, automatic, stigmatization of those who challenge government explanations. This is an extremely important and readable book, one of those rare books with the power to break you out of The Matrix.
Professor deHaven-Smith is able to write this book because the original CIA Dispatch #1035-960, which sets out the CIA plot, was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. Apparently, the bureaucracy did not regard a document this old as being of any importance. The document is marked “Destroy when no longer needed,” but somehow wasn’t. CIA Dispatch #1035-960 is reproduced in the book.
The success that the CIA has had in stigmatizing skepticism of government explanations has made it difficult to investigate State Crimes Against Democracy (SCAD) such as 9/11. With the public mind programmed to ridicule “conspiracy kooks,” even in the case of suspicious events such as 9/11 the government can destroy evidence, ignore prescribed procedures, delay an investigation, and then form a political committee to put its imprimatur on the official story. Professor deHaven-Smith notes that in such events as Kennedy’s assassination and 9/11 official police and prosecutorial investigations are never employed. The event is handed off to a political commission.
Professor deHaven-Smith’s book supports what I have told my readers: the government controls the story from the beginning by having the official explanation ready the moment a SCAD occurs. This makes any other explanation a “conspiracy theory.” This is the way Professor deHaven-Smith puts it:
“A SCAD approach to memes assumes further that the CIA and other possibly participating agencies are formulating memes well in advance of operations, and therefore SCAD memes appear and are popularized very quickly before any competing concepts are on the scene.”
The CIA’s success in controlling public perception of what our Founding Fathers would have regarded as suspicious events involving the government enables those in power positions within government to orchestrate events that serve hidden agendas. The events of September 11 created the new paradigm of endless war in behalf of a Washington-dominated world. The CIA’s success in controlling public perceptions has made it impossible to investigate elite political crimes. Consequently, it is now possible for treason to be official US government policy.
Professor deHaven-Smith’s book will tell you the story of the assassination of President Kennedy by elements of the US military, CIA, and Secret Service. Just as the Warren Commission covered up the State Crime Against Democracy, Professor deHaven-Smith shows why we should doubt the official 9/11 story. And anything else that the government tells us.
Read this book. It is short. It is affordable. It is reality preparation. It will innoculate you against being a dumbshit, insouciant, brainwashed American. I am surprised that the CIA has not purchased the entire print run and burned the books. Perhaps the CIA feels secure from its success in brainwashing the public and does not believe that American democracy and accountable government can be restored.
IS THIS YOU?

I got an email from a friend. It bothers me in two ways… the fact that what it identifies as problems is accurate and the fact that those who made the problems possible are not properly identified. So I’m giving you my editorial analysis of the email before you read it.
All of the written words contained in the email after my comments here do make me angry… but what insults me is the placing of total blame on those who are elected to office to serve. Do I believe any of them have done a good job? Maybe a handful, but certainly not many. How did they get elected? They were chosen and financially supported by the RNC and the DNC. Who gave the money to the RNC and DNC to support Republican or Democrat candidates without really checking to find out who they are? THE PEOPLE! Who is supposed to select political candidates? THE PEOPLE! They are supposed to find and support men and women of character who won’t look at being sent to Washington as a career, rather just a temporary job. Who got so lazy they gave up involvement with their political system and gave the RNC and the DNC the power to select political candidates? THE PEOPLE! For 50 years, Republicans have voted for anyone who was a Republican, same for Democrats.
That was the great weakness that allowed this silent shadow coup of our government… all “they” had to do was gain control of the RNC and the DNC then make sure the only candidates that got financial support (which translates to “elected”) were the morally compromised who could be made to do whatever was asked of them by the RNC and DNC. The number one responsibility of being an American citizen is not voting — they sold everyone on that lie so they could achieve their power takeover of both political parties. The number one responsibility of an American citizen is finding the highest quality political candidates available to run for office and then support them. You do not send money — and continue to send money — to the very organization which has filled our Congress with thieves, crooks and otherwise morally compromised people.
What is said in this email is accurate as it relates to the problems. What is said as to who is to blame is inaccurate. We, the People, are specifically to blame for letting the RNC and DNC gain so much power. How many people who read this will attend their Republican or Democrat monthly luncheon and become involved in making sure that those who run the local political system have stong moral character? Very darned few! It’s not that hard to take back control of the political parties and their leadership… you just have to attend Party functions and make sure to get strong candidates for office within the Party nominated and supported. This isn’t hard. It doesn’t require going door-to-door to get petitions signed or putting signs in your yard. It just requires getting enough people who are concerned about their nation to go with you to attend Party functions at the County level. The Officers of each County are the ones who select the State Party officials. Thus, changing things at the County level changes things at the State level. You go to a luncheon once a month. You take friends who are also concerned about their country with you. So you go to a political lunch once a month. You get on their mailing list and attend one Party function every six weeks! Wow! A horrible price to pay to maintain your freedom… your right to keep having barbecues and boy’s out card nights!
That’s how you change the character of the political parties who have pulled off a coup… a takeover of our government with little in the way of Civil War. MB
Well….., what the hell is happening to us?????
Democrats and Republicans
“””””(‘different’ ONLY in name)”””””
Someone please tell me what the HELL’s wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!
Both Democrats and Republicans Say, “We’re broke” And can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless, Etc.,?????
But, over the last several years THEY have provided direct cash aid to….
Hamas – $351 M,
Libya- $1.45 B,
Egypt- $397 M,
Mexico- $622 M,
Russia– 380 M,
Haiti- $1.4 B,
Jordan- $463 M,
Kenya- $816 M,
Sudan- $870 M,
Nigeria- $456 M,
Uganda- $451 M,
Congo- $359 M,
Ethiopia- $981 M,
Pakistan- $2 B
South Africa- $566 M,
Senegal- $698 M,
Mozambique- $404 M,
Zambia- $331 M,
Kazakhstan- $304 M,
Iraq- $1.08 B,
Tanzania- $554 M,
…with literally Billions of Dollars, and those buttheads still hate us!!!!
But on the other hand, Our retired seniors, Living on a ‘fixed income,’
Receive NO aid!
Nor do they get any breaks, while our government and religious organizations will pour
Hundreds of Billions Of $$$$$$’s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!
Someone needs to explain to them that Charity begins AT HOME!!!
And another atrocity….
We have Hundreds of adoptable American Children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption OF Foreign Orphans.
AMERICA: A country where we have
Countless Homeless without shelter,
Children going to bed hungry,
Elderly going without needed medication
and the Mentally ill without treatment — etc.
They will have a ‘Benefit’ Show For the people of Haiti , on 12 TV Stations; Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.
Now Just Imagine if Our own *GOVERNMENT* Gave ‘US’ the same support they give to foreign countries.
One of the things at the top of Trump’s list (America First). They’re scared silly of him and worried their gravy train will be gone if they allow him to be elected! I’m not a fan of his mouth, but his opponent is already part of the problem and hasn’t done anything about it, and won’t.
Sad, isn’t it?
THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE:
The International Investment Central Banking Cartel is using all this money to build their New World Order. There is not one politician world wide that is immune from their wrath when refusing to comply. At this point, non-cooperation is suicide or imprisonment.
One solution remains, and that is for some government to order the bankers extermination.
Dito for the education and media heads.
The elimination of corporate governments and the return to a republican form of government world wide.
The cooperation of all governments to issue a universal commodity backed currency.
Follow the government building method described by Marilyn above.
Follow the advice of our founders and avoid entanglements with other governments.
Do not let sympathy smother common sense. One must be strong and capable before nursing the world. Make the introduction of other forms of Government a capital offense and there is to be only one political party in America, THE FREEDOM PARTY!
Introduce a world wide instruction manual as a suggestion to the world why instilling freedom in the minds of every child should be a global responsibility.
Promote the universal acceptance that humans are born depraved and must be instructed on accountability.
The legal structure of Corporations must be reorganized and be without personhood.
The Pope and Queen of England must withdraw all liens on corporate government’s world wide.
Every human being on earth should have a Freedom Birth Certificate and no passports are required anywhere.
If any government encounters one or more terrorist,
Post their heads on a stake.
There should be little if any difference between governments world wide, as every human being deserves freedom from tyranny. When individuals world wide are thinking alike there will be peace and prosperity.
The above is the only New World Order I will accept.

We expect that by the end of this week we will have the actual structure and mechanism of the foreclosure fraud detailed out, step by step, in a way that average non-accountants can follow along and grasp. That step by step will give the citations to the patents and trademarks and other public records that are all admissible evidence in any court. We are going to release this to the general public, for free, and let you have at it in your individual cases— at the same time that we pursue remedy in behalf of all Americans. (Flag donations to this effort as: “End Foreclosure Fraud”)
We have determined that we, living, breathing Americans are called “United States Nationals” in Federal-eze when it comes to international affairs and are called “American State Nationals” or simply “Nationals” when it comes to business here at home. “National” refers to the land jurisdiction of this country.
So if you are talking to the Passport agencies, tell them you are a “United States National, not a United States Citizen” (unless, of course, you are actually employed by, dependent on, or voluntarily chartered as a corporation by the federal government) and if, for example, you are talking to the Governor of the State of New Mexico, tell him that you are a Texan (not a Resident) who has established residency (which is different) in New Mexico—and you’d like to know what is being done about illegal immigration?
We hope to have routed through the correct process for American State Nationals to obtain correct passports very soon and will publish that info as soon as we are sure we’ve nailed it down and have resource contacts for you. (Flag donations to this project as: “Correct Passports”)
All research and all feedback received to date demonstrates the necessity of claiming back your Trade Name and re-conveying it to the land jurisdiction of the United States— and recording the deed to your own Name. Otherwise, technically, you are a “disregarded entity” and these foreign corporations claim to own YOU — and use the ACCOUNT NAME as a convenient handle to lay false claims against your assets. Once you have your own Trade Name back in your control and operating in proper jurisdiction you can use it to reclaim everything else. Several people have written and been distressed over more complex or expensive name-change processes in their states. Though I recommend getting a formal name change decree — which puts the court on record as agreeing to your action—if at all possible, you can also try a simple Deed of Re-conveyance, laying claim to your Trade Name and removing it to the land jurisdiction of your actual state—- Arkansas State not State of Arkansas— for example. Record it, and if necessary give a land description– “land assets and moveable fixtures generally located at:________________________”. (435 St. Mary’s Street, Hoboken, New Jersey, for example).
Federal Marshals Education:
There are “Federal Marshals” tasked with peacekeeping on the land jurisdiction and there are “United States Marshals” tasked with law enforcement in the foreign, international jurisdiction of the sea. One executes the Public Law and the other executes private international corporate Statutes. Educating these men and women (and also their parallels in state and local government positions) is essential. Even our locally elected Sheriffs are in desperate need of education on these topics. We’ve launched an effort to write a quick-and-easy handbook for those responsible for protecting our communities.

American States and Nations Bank:
We have a core group of banking experts working on three different but related tasks— (1) creating a safe depository for American assets, especially those being returned from overseas; (2) creating secure international banks competent to work with both IEX and FOREX transactions and currency exchanges; (3) beginning to build actual State National Banks again, which are run by local bank associations. Along with this goes a lot of technical and security work—and we are doing the best we can to move it forward with limited start-up resources. This project also involves negotiations to receive long-stalled treaty funding owed to the actual States and Nations and recoupment of other property interests that have been held in abeyance—-in some cases since before the Civil War. There are an estimated 45,000 accounts at the national level that have to be secured and audited—which does not begin to deal with the same job that needs to be done at the county and state levels.

Building knowledgeable and effective Jural Assemblies is the key to building competent and honest county governments to operate the land jurisdiction of this country. If you have a Jural Assembly already started in your county, join and support it. If not, contact the Michigan General Jural Assembly, and use their proven methods to start one. Bear in mind that members must make a decision and declare that they are not “United States Citizens” but are instead “American State Nationals” before they can regain their lawful status and act as American Common Law Jurors.
(Donate time and money locally.)
****Please Note**** when you act as a juror you are for the time you serve considered an “American State Citizen” because you are occupying an office of the actual State. The same is true for the judges, clerks, bailiffs, sheriffs, and others you elect to serve in your County. The word “citizen” always implies an obligation to serve the government. In this case, you are offering to serve as a Juror.
So, a member of a County Jural Assembly must be an American State Citizen during the time they serve as Jurors and when the people come together to serve on a “Citizens Common Law Grand Jury” this is the kind of jury referenced as the Fourth Branch of Government in Justice Antonin Scalia’s famous ruling. This is American Common Law— the Law of the Land— in operation.
This is different from a Jural Society—which is what lawyers and “United States Citizens” belong to and use to operate the incorporated Counties in the international jurisdiction of the sea. When these people come together they also form what can be called a “Citizen’s Common Law Jury” — but they are operating under Martial Common Law, not the Law of the Land, and have no business pretending to be the Fourth Branch which was created to be a safeguard against usurpation and mismanagement by federal officials and employees, not just another fox to guard our hen house.
Jural Assembly = land jurisdiction (national) unincorporated
American State National = a man without obligation to government.
American State Citizen = man serving the government of his actual state on the land, for example Wisconsin State, Pennsylvania Commonwealth, etc., as a Juror, Clerk, Sheriff, etc.
Jural Society = sea jurisdiction (international) incorporated
United States Citizen = federal employee, dependent, or corporation serving that government, includes those operating the federated “State of” and “County of” franchises.
Always pay attention to the exact words being used. There is a world of difference between a “United States National” and a “United States Citizen” and an equally huge difference between a “Jural Assembly” and a “Jural Society”.
You must educate yourselves to avoid being misidentified, victimized, or entrapped by all this duplicitous wordplay. You must also do this to be able to properly and lawfully run the powerful people-based government you are owed.
I call it this, because with the exception of our Native American representatives in the United Nations there are no competent people able and willing to speak for America and the American States at this time who have been lawfully elected or otherwise granted ambassadorial capacities –except that as sovereigns of the land jurisdiction we have and individually retain the ability to speak for our states on the land and for the Union of these States of America formed by The Articles of Confederation— under Article X.
This is the capacity in which I and my husband have been able to act as Judges and Ambassadors and Fiduciary Deputies for our States of America, and while—in theory at least—any living American can do this, not many of us have the education and capacity to do so at this time.
We find ourselves triple-tasked to: (1) find competent people in each state to enter into this work; (2) bring them up to speed and give them the information and tools they need; (3) get the current work done.
We have published many pieces of correspondence, both official correspondence when acting as Judges or Fiduciary Deputies, and private correspondences written to foreign leaders, so you have cause to know how important and time-consuming this effort to communicate with the rest of the world is.
Before we can solve problems we have to recognize what they are.
We have been able to detail where in history the train went off the track—- in England, during the reign of Queen Victoria, acting under the influence of Benjamin D’Israeli, leading to the subjugation of the English people by deceit and the subjugation of India by force.
This situation would be a Major Faux Pas if it were just the United States involved, but fortunately or unfortunately, most of the known world is involved in this mess.
The American People have to weigh in now to save their own bacon because they are being defrauded and mischaracterized and suffering extortion and racketeering at the hands of international banks and other commercial institutions. In raising our objections we must inform all the other people of the world who are similarly being run-ragged by gangs of officially sanctioned pirates and thieves.
And we must also “fully inform” those responsible. This means Congress. This means the United Nations. This means the IMF. This means the British Parliament. This means Queen Elizabeth. This means the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. And many, many, many, many more officials and corporate officers. This means, most especially, Pope Francis in his role as Roman Pontiff. Why? Because he can pull the charter on any incorporated entity that violates its charter and functions in a criminal manner—-and he has the obligation to do so.
This is why members of the Catholic Church and Catholic Clergy have a crucial role to play in correcting this horrific situation, both in terms of manpower and outcry, and in terms of enforcement against the offending corporations. These corporations are only allowed to exist by consent. They have no natural basis for their being. When they get out of control, living men must be responsible for (a) correcting their administrators; (b) imposing fines and penalties for bad behavior; (c) liquidating them.
By very long standing international convention and agreement, the responsibility for that oversight has always been with the Roman Curia and the Pope functioning as the Pontiff of Rome. That’s where it remains to this day.
My husband, I, and a dedicated group of others scattered across the United States and around the globe have spent incalculable hours engaged in this kind of forthright communication with “the entire world” for years at a time in order to raise the alarm, report the crime, and shine the light on the subversion of our treaties and agreements.
Now, maybe you feel overawed by the prospect of writing a letter to the President or the Pope or Queen Elizabeth or the Congress or Chief Justice Roberts or the Joint Chiefs of Staff—- but unless you do, who is going to? Just me and the chickens back home?
Everyone—-absolutely everyone on this planet needs to know the Truth. Everyone needs to take up their oar and open their mouth and run their printing presses. I don’t advise any blanket accusations or blaming. Just stick to the facts, which have been abundantly shared.
Along with all the written and verbal communication there is need for actual meetings with people— and international travel. We have had to send researchers and for lack of a better word, agents, abroad, both to meet with members of foreign corporations and governments and banks and so on and on.
Not all the non-Bar attorneys are involved in this part of the effort, but the Senior Team Members are and we have funded the whole thing ourselves out of pocket. So— you can see my private letter to Pope Francis and UN Secretary Ban Ki-Moon to get a taste of what is going on with all that and if you want to help fund these efforts, please flag donations as “Foreign Outreach”.
Finally, thank you, all of you, who are waking up and waking others. Thank you for your efforts and your researches and your prayers and your donations. Please understand that this is all coming to a boil and I am now over my head in work. For those who are just getting oriented and all those who want citations and references, start with the eleven pages of citations in my book “Disclosure 101” and then all the citations in “You Know Something Is Wrong When….An American Affidavit of Probable Cause”—-both available on Amazon. And if you are still stumped, refer to my “Timeline”.
God bless America this Sunday, and all our States of America, and all our dearly beloved People.

Again, thanks to OBAMA, he has or is giving away control of the Internet, and the one’s who might just take over control, are the United Nations.
Thats right, Our fearless cocksucker in chief has yet again fucked every American over.
When the Obama administration announced its plan to give up U.S.
protection of the internet, it promised the United Nations would never
take control. But because of the administration’s naiveté or arrogance,
U.N. control is the likely result if the U.S. gives up internet
stewardship as planned at midnight on Sept. 30.
Without the U.S. contract, ICAAN would seek to be overseen by another
governmental group so as to keep its antitrust exemption. Authoritarian
regimes have already proposed ICAAN become part of the U.N. to make it
easier for them to censor the internet globally. So much for the Obama
pledge that the U.S. would never be replaced by a “government-led or an
inter-governmental organization solution.”
The only thing worse than a monopoly overseen by the U.S. government is a
monopoly overseen by no one—or by a Web-censoring U.N. Congress still
has time to extend its ban on the Obama administration giving up
protection of the internet. ICAAN has given it every reason to do so.
SAME TO YA ASSHOLE!
This is something that should inspire the military to throw this bastard in the ocean from 30K feet!
If everyone does not raise living hell
America is toast!!! And the people deserve it.
Call your fucking congress critter and raise hell, over and over until the bastards cut you off.

His Holiness, Pope Francis via RE 152 242 035 US

Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon via RE 152 242 044 US
United Nations Secretariat
New York, NY 10017
Your Holiness, Your Excellency—
The time has come to be honest with the world and with the people in it.
The old British Empire was rotten to the core. It used press-ganging, enslavement, and inland piracy — otherwise known as “colonialism”— to cheat the entire world.
In the wake of World War II, the United Nations was established to keep the peace and the Trusteeship Council was established to end colonialism, and to an extent, it has succeeded while ignoring the very much larger problem of continued British colonialism in the UK, Canada, Australia, the US, South Africa, New Zealand, and even mainland Europe where most countries have been severely impacted.
The very short history in the United States is instructive and parallels similar developments and practices throughout the world.
We were coerced into a misrepresented war (Step One) known as the American Civil War (1861-1865) and our government was overthrown (Step Two) and surreptitiously replaced by a government services corporation (Step Three) owned and operated by the Roman Catholic Church and calling itself The United States of America. (Step 4). This was a “private religious non-profit service corporation”.
In 1907, the move began to sell off The United States of America, Inc., to an international banking cartel known euphemistically as a the Federal Reserve. This organization took over, very subtly renamed the governmental services corporation — changing it from “The United States of America” to “the” United States of America (Incorporated)— and spun off the Federal Reserve System establishing an all-powerful Central Bank (Step 5).
The Federal Reserve set up a fiat money system which among other things forced “US Citizens” to use commercial debt notes instead of real money. They could side-step the actual Constitution of this country because “US Citizens” were never protected by the Constitution.
This confusion between the “US Citizens” who were British Subjects and the actual Americans who are nationals of the fifty American States would later be milked under conditions of duress, extortion, and non-disclosure to create false claims in commerce against the 50 States of America and the American People.
The same or similar practices were employed by the IMF.
This fraud scheme proved so profitable that it was soon deployed worldwide. Instead of England, Ireland, and Scotland, we suddenly had the UK. Instead of Germany, France, and Italy, we had the EU. Instead of Canada, we had CANADA. And so it went around the Brave New World.
The con-artists simply drummed up new names for entire nations, forced fiat currencies down our throats, and proceeded to steal title to everything of value in sight by fraud. (Step 6).
In America, because “US Citizens” were not protected by the Constitution, an all-out effort was made to redefine everyone as a “US Citizen”—- the better to coerce us and plunder our assets. (Step 7).
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, acting as the CEO of the private, mostly foreign-owned “United States of America, Inc.” had his franchise managers operating “state of States” —– “State of Washington” for example— pledge the “good faith and credit” of their “states and the people thereof” as sureties for the debts of the bankrupt “United States of America, Inc.”
He also gratuitously redefined the Trade Names of millions of Americans to be the names of Foreign Situs Trusts, owned and operated by the bankrupt United States of America, Inc., and standing as sureties for its debts.
Thus, the perpetrators endeavored and succeeded in stealing the identity and high-jacking the credit of our entire nation.
For the next 66 years, Americans paid for the debts of the United States of America, Inc. out of one pocket, and paid for the “services” of the IMF sponsored UNITED STATES, INC. out of the other.
When the bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc. finally settled in 1999, the international Trustees responsible should have released and re-conveyed the names and proper titles owed to the American States and the American People back to us. Instead, they left everything adrift in the foreign international jurisdiction of the sea, and our Trustee on the High Seas and Inland Waterways, the Queen of England, sat on her duff and did nothing.
Our Honorable Trade Names which are and always were our private property, have been labeled “disregarded entities”. This is your big wake up call from the Disregarded Entities—- the modern day victims of Commercial Colonialism— and the greatest fraud and breach of trust violation in world history.
As we write, the Second Round of this fraud scheme is ticking down. The IMF-sponsored UNITED STATES, INC., pulled its own version of the scam by creating Cestui Que Vie Trusts named after each and every “Missing American”, creating bogus titles to our assets including our labor and our land, and using this mechanism as a means of borrowing against our assets—all unknown to us.
Having hijacked our credit—-again—-they have charged our credit cards into the stratosphere, paid no debts, and partied down since 1944 on our ticket, all without the trusting Americans ever realizing or being told what was going on.
And now, because of their utter, reprehensible irresponsibility and criminality, the UNITED STATES, INC. and all its purported “franchises” are not only bankrupt, they’ve been forced into liquidation.
Which brings us to the Main Topic of this letter. Yesterday, we received word that Mr. Obama is preparing to declare “Martial Law”. We are wondering how he can propose to do this, since the “United States” has been at constant war and operating under martial law since 1863?
Also yesterday, we received word that over 6000 innocent American Homeowners have received “tax bills” often greater than the value of their homes along with eviction and sale notices.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out. The UNITED STATES, INC., sponsored by the IMF is under liquidation. So they are having their corporate franchises—- the STATE OF MAINE and STATE OF FLORIDA—- bill the Cestui Que Vie Trusts they created and named after the living Americans.
The Sin of Omission of the “US Trustees” who failed to re-convey our Names and our Property back to the land jurisdiction has resulted in this situation and we know exactly who those Trustees are. So do you.
All these “tax bills” are being presented in DOG-LATIN and are utterly fraudulent on their face—-yet the IMF and its minions are clearly preparing to use armed force and legal pretense to seize the property of innocent Americans.
Let’s make this very clear—except for the nineteen enumerated services our States contracted to receive—none of these expenses charged off against these bogus ESTATE trusts are ours. Neither are we “United States Citizens” nor “citizens of the United States”. We, Americans, are the victims of gross Breach of Trust and mischaracterization and identity theft and fraud—but we are not alone.
The same basic conditions have been set up in the UK, EU, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and other countries around the world.
The IMF is a French Corporation. The French Government is responsible for oversight of its activities—-including its criminality in this matter.
We, the American People, are all owed the protections of the actual Constitution for the united States of America and are owed the re-conveyance of our good names and the return of our property titles and interests from our international Trustees—- the Pope in the Air Jurisdiction and the Queen of England who is our Trustee on the High Seas and Inland Waterways.
It is well-known and proven already that Americans have been falsely claimed to be “United States Citizens” and that all these acts of systemic fraud have taken place. The Curia has already declared that we are tax exempt and our vessels in commerce are tax prepaid. Trillions of dollars are sitting in our ACCOUNTS as credit and these “Prepaid” tax bills are purposefully not being paid so as to excuse the seizure of our land and our other assets.
Since the French Government chartered the IMF, the French Government is responsible for its operations— including this ongoing deliberate mismanagement and criminality against Americans.
Pope Francis, we have returned to our land jurisdiction and it is past time to balance the books— or pull the IMF Charter and leave it with no basis for doing business, no funds and no ability to continue presenting bogus “tax bills”, harassing innocent people or paying for commercial armies operating under color of law as “government” agencies.
Secretary Ban Ki-Moon, if you value your mission of keeping world peace, we suggest that you encourage and assist Pope Francis to do the right thing and apply appropriate pressure to the Obama Administration and whatever comes after it, to respect the Will of the American People in this matter, and to seek the cooperation of the French Government.
We have already named new federal contractors to take over the role of providing us with essential governmental services in international jurisdiction and we have properly organized our counties and states to receive back our funding and resume proper operation of our nation-states. We have more than a million Federal Marshals trained and sworn in to provide for peace keeping, with more coming on board every day.
There can be no excuse for allowing the IMF or any of its bankruptcy liquidation operations related to the UNITED STATES, INC. to continue under these false pretenses on our shores.
The bill collectors must be advised of the fraud against Americans and told to cease and desist their false presumptions and fraudulent billing practices. What we owe, we have offered to pay and have instructed our Trustees to pay. The rest of the odious debt racked up by the IMF doing business as the UNITED STATES, STATES OF STATES, and JOSEPH QUINCY PUBLIC stands repudiated as fraud.
You are both fully advised that vast numbers of Americans have been deliberately and non-consensually press-ganged and mischaracterized as “US Citizens” in order to promote fraud against them and their material interests. This was attempted by the perpetrators of the 14th Amendment to the corporate constitution known as The Constitution of the United States of America. It was attempted by FDR via means of identity theft and commercial fraud. And now it is being attempted again by the IMF dba “UNITED STATES”.
Enough is enough.
The assets held under color of law must be returned to the Americans. Our Trade Names must be re-conveyed to the land jurisdiction en masse, just as we were originally illegally press-ganged off the land. The assets held under title and color of law in these bogus ACCOUNTS must be returned to the people and the States of America without further obfuscation or delay.
This situation is the result of mismanagement, mischaracterization, and Breach of Trust on the part of the British Monarch, former Popes, and the French Government which has failed to maintain oversight on the IMF and its operations.
It is not the fault of the peaceful, trusting, hard-working American People who have been the victims of all this international corporate fraud.

Since most people are infatuated with Professional Sports and have little intellect with which to think critically, it has been my intention to put before you a variety of subjects that are affecting the demise of our freedom from a tyrannical Government, and our ability to perceive what is being done to us on a personal and financial level. In the end I can only pray that you will wake up to these atrocities and get involved in spreading the truth about our National and State Governments and certain rich people like George Soros. The education, and mainstream media has retarded your understanding of human nature and you must abandon your fixation on American exceptionalism if you are ever to regain your freedom, safety and peace of mind. It is your personal responsibility to learn and teach by spreading the word. Or you can bend over and kiss your ass goodbye!

George Soros’s Open Society Foundations is anticipating an increase in “migration pressures in the coming decades” due in part to “globalization,” according to a leaked memo outlining a proposed strategy for successfully influencing immigration policy.
The memo, which was published by “hacktivist” group DCLeaks, contains a proposed strategy for OSF’s International Migration Initiative, which aims to influence global immigration policy. The proposed strategy previews the organization’s work from 2016 to 2019.
“IMI’s work on migration is set against a volatile backdrop. More people than ever before are crossing borders in search of safety and a better life, while in nearly every region xenophobia, populism, and hostility towards migrants are on the rise,” notes the memo.
“In some contexts, governments manage migration through guest worker programs that restrict migrants’ rights by tying them to short-term jobs, satisfying business demand for cheap labor while also appeasing anti-migrant sentiment. Elsewhere, governments pursue policies of deterrence and enforcement designed to keep migrants out. IMI’s work responds to both trends.”
“The fierce opposition to immigration reforms in the US and Europe, rising numbers of deaths in the Mediterranean, and record numbers of unaccompanied children point to a breakdown in the governance and public acceptance of migration,” the memo continues. “This will be amplified as demographic forces, globalization, climate change, and conflicts increase migration pressures in the coming decades.”
As previously reported by The Daily Caller, a (different) leaked OSF memo focusing on OSF’s International Migration Initiative argues that Europe’s refugee crisis should be accepted as a “new normal,” and that the refugee crisis means “new opportunities” for Soros’ organization to influence immigration policies on a global scale. (RELATED: Leaked Soros Memo: Refugee Crisis ‘New Normal,’ Gives ‘New Opportunities’ For Global Influence)
That memo made three key points: OSF — which doles out millions to left-wing causes — has been successful at influencing global immigration policy; Europe’s refugee crisis presents “new opportunities” for the organization to influence global immigration policy; and the refugee crisis is the “new normal.”

By Daily Bell Staff – August 23, 2016
Being an Ideologue Means Never Having to Say You’re Wrong … “Communism would have worked, if the Soviet Union had only tried it for real.” … For any political-economic ideology, there is always a hard core of believers who will never waver in their conviction that if only the program were tried in its pure form, it would succeed. Any failures — even debacles on a grand scale, including the fiasco of 20th century communism — will be chalked up to ideological impurity and improper application.- Bloomberg
Bloomberg’s Noah Smith, the site’s most provocative and often wrongheaded columnist compares communism to free-markets in this editorial. His conclusion: “Hard core believers” of any type are probably wrong.
We don’t think so.
Communism in its modern form is a pervasively authoritarian ideology. Its corollary is state control. Free-market economics is exactly the opposite. It is most effective when the state is at least dormant.
Can societies ever be too free? That’s hard to fathom. Certainly – and sadly – that doesn’t seem to be a problem in the world today. Nonetheless, Noah pursues his points.
In reality, true believers often cling tenaciously to their worldviews … [But] the tendency toward ideological commitment is now being tested in the U.S., as free-market dogma — sometimes known as neo-liberalism — is coming under increasing attack.
Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign gained a surprising amount of support from young people. Economists, both in the public eye and out of it, are focusing more on inequality and embracing a more activist role for the state.
Business professors are starting to question the short-termism of financial markets and shareholder control. Some researchers at right-leaning think tanks are saying that Republicans need to move away from Reaganomics and its mix of tax cuts and deregulation.
In fact we don’t recognize what Smith calls “free-market dogma.” What the US has in place now is what we’ve called technocratic fascism.
To conflate it with a pure form of anarcho-capitalism is ludicrous.
The US government runs on well over $3 trillion a year. It pursues bloodthirsty hegemony abroad and repression at home.
The dominant ideology of the US – and the West in general – is corporatism. And corporatism is the result of Supreme Court decisions that have at least partially created a reign of judicial terror that includes intellectual property rights, corporate personhood and monopoly central banking.
Absent these three disastrous influences, the US probably would look a lot more like it did before the Civil War, when the country – despite slavery and genocidal policies toward Native Americans – produced something of a golden epoch in the annals of industrial freedom and creativity.
The success of this era, ironically, laid the building blocks for the current American empire. Pre-Civil War, creativity was fairly untrammeled by government regulations and entrepreneurship was not constrained by the current faux fervor of environmentalism.
Here, a summary, as follows:
The antebellum era was a time not only of profound political change but also of great technological and economic innovation. The Industrial Revolution, which began in Europe in the 1700s, had produced new inventions and methods of production.
American inventors transformed the U.S. economy with new innovations of their own. This rapid development of manufacturing and improved farming had such a profound effect on American society that historians often refer to it as the Market Revolution.
Some antebellum inventions? The cotton gin, the steamboat, the Erie Canal and railroads.
The building blocks of modernity not just for the US but for the world were put in place during a period of incandescent creativity. People could invent what they wanted and put their ideas into production.
Contrast this with communism. From what we can tell, Stalin’s number one product was genocide. Certainly, people abandoned communism as soon as they could. The system was only kept in place by force.
Contrast that to the US, where it took a war – the Civil War – to change the texture of society and replace laissez-faire with the beginnings of the technocratic capitalism that the US is sinking under today.
Smith writes in his conclusion that people generally are not ideological. The implication is that free-market “neoliberalism” has moved in an overly energetic fashion in the direction of industrial anarchy.
But as explained above, laissez-faire has been retreating in the US for well over a century-and-a-half now. Smith seems to be confusing fascism with freedom.
Nonetheless, he is fairly certain what’s coming next:
“I expect the U.S. public to cast around for alternatives to the neoliberalism of Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush … Some sort of course change, rather than a doubling down, seems inevitable.”
Leave aside our disagreement with his characterization of the philosophies of these three men, it is hard to conceive of a society failing from too much entrepreneurship, industrial vitality and freedom.
On the other hand, it equally hard to visualize a successful society shaped by the brutal intolerance of communism – as it apparently evolves inevitably when it is tried.
Conclusion: One can never have too much freedom, in our view. And one can never have too little forcible communism. Human action is preferable to authoritarianism. Societies work best when people (absent sociopaths) are left to their own devices.
Please let me add to this article with some comments about the people’s responsibility. Even with the massive propaganda we have been submitted to starting in kinder-garden and all the way through collage, the media industry the schools and the Governments excessive compulsive passing of more and more statutes should have rang an alarm bell in the peoples mind many years ago. This present social ignorance shows just how successful they have been at forming an acceptance in the people of being manipulated into compliance. So where the hell was their common sense all these years and why are they still voting? You have to be a brain dead jackass to support a democratic form of government when diversity is an accepted social commitment.

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” — John F. Kennedy
Put two people in a room and disagreement, at times, is a virtual certainty. Put 320,000,000 people in a nation and disagreement, sometimes violent, is a daily fact of life. Now add to the mix a heavy dose of multi-culturalism and the brew gets even more volatile. Then add 86,000,000 Americans being forced to pay for the livelihoods of 148,000,000 unproductive Americans and the brew becomes explosive. (Those 148,000,000 Americans think everything is just fine and they can vote to keep it that way.)
In that same nation, millions of illegal aliens are allowed to enter, almost unimpeded and encouraged by a liberal government. They get on the welfare rolls thus costing those 86,000,000 productive Americans billions of dollars in taxes for illegal-alien subsistence and millions of lost jobs, not to mention the drugs, rape, robbery and murder brought to America by the fairly large illegal-alien criminal element.
Let’s not forget the effects of radical environmentalism on the cost of goods and the loss of property rights, fueling rising distrust and anger in our rural communities all across America. We know a lot about that anger and discontent of rural landowners by the calls and e-mails we get every week from besieged landowners. We try to help them with the tools our organization (NARLO) provides, but it isn’t enough. The ability of the government, local, state, or federal, to harass and abuse landowners is greater than our ability to counter it. (See “Rural America In the Crosshairs”)
Add a Federal Reserve that is neither federal or a reserve and an exploding national debt to pay for over one hundred years of liberal, give-away policies, a debt that could lead to a devastating financial collapse and you have a recipe for not only anger and discontent, but the potential for rising violence.
Americans have had difficulty remaining united under any circumstances, except when it is threatened by a foreign enemy. But today, almost eight years of President Obama, it would seem the nation is coming apart at the seems. The great “Uniter” is in fact the great “Divider” and he has done so with malice afore thought to implement his twisted vision of America.
Obama’s Blacks think they are getting a raw deal and invented Black Lives Matter for non-existent injustices, with a giant boost from the nation’s wealthy liberals. They are stirring up trouble, chaos, violence and riots in every big city in America just for the Hell of it. Blacks voting in a block for Democrats is not because Blacks like liberal policies. It’s because they like the Democrats stealing from everyone else to give to the Blacks. It’s there form of reparations for past American sins.
Latinos are all upset because millions of legal Americans are finally saying enough is enough to illegal immigration, whether it is from Mexico, Central and South America, or the Middle East. The INS and ICE have lost control of the immigration process and are instead just throwing billions of our tax dollars at it, releasing tens of thousands of criminal aliens into the general population and failing to keep track of the millions of visas given out to foreigners.
The Indians are angry because of losing the war 150 years ago and are getting even with the White man by erecting casinos all over the place and confiscating land and water rights using ancient treaties, with the help of the government and radical environmentalists.
On top of that, radical Islam (ISIS and Al Qaeda) is threatening to annihilate our very way of life and our government, sworn to protect us from all enemies, foreign or domestic, is doing so little to crush the enemy that the enemy is free to come to America and kill Americans. Obama’s policies of appeasement and non-confrontation at any cost, are reaching out to bite us in a very big way, with the prospects of it only getting worse. Do you think twice now before going to the mall or the theater?
Then there are the laws. The America government, at every level, has passed so many laws against every human activity to the point that Americans have become lawbreakers every day of their lives, without knowing it …. that is until they get caught.
The wide-eyed, radical academic environmentalist Bill McKibben wants to give wartime powers to government against climate change, giving government the absolute power to do anything it deemed necessary, including confiscation of property, coercing businesses into supporting the effort, telling businesses what to do, when to do it and whom to hire, along with strict control over the economy. Bill has millions of groupies, academia and the news media on his side. But waging war, at any cost, including the loss of liberty, against a boogieman, backed up by unsettled or bad science, is the epitome of tyranny.
But worse, we have allowed growing secularity and worldly forces to rip out the cultural fabric of our Judeo-Christian heritage by allowing certain minorities rights that are in direct conflict with cultural norms and the natural order.
Our public schools and colleges have become institutions of liberal propaganda and indoctrination. Each generation learns less and less about America’s beginning and foundation of freedom. This is born out by millions of young Americans finding socialist Bernie Sanders a fitting presidential candidate. Then you have millions more Americans eager to put one of the most corrupt individuals in American politics, on the Clinton dynasty throne.
Soon the old ones will die off and their perspective of a free and prosperous America will be lost forever. With no heritage of liberty available from the seniors in our midst and no teachings of freedom in our schools, liberty will surely die.
We can’t imagine why proud, self-reliant, responsible Americans are so angry, frustrated and ready to do harm to someone or something. We can’t imagine why millions of those same Americans are listening to Donald Trump and liking what they hear. Or, can we?
Donald Trump, as flawed as he is, is channeling America’s anger, however imperfect his style and demeanor. For the millions of Americans that are sick and tired of business as usual and the institutional corruption, Donald Trump has given them a voice. But Trump is not a Superman that can leap tall buildings in a single bound. He cannot, with a wave of his extended hand, eradicate poverty, provide everyone with a job and kill our enemies. But most of all he cannot change the mindset of a “gimee!” national mentality that has become accustomed to sucking at the teat of mother government. Unfortunately, that “gimee!” mentality can vote to keep the “milk” flowing and they are in the majority.
But there is more to the problem than just an out-of-control government. We as individuals cannot just abdicate our responsibility to hold government accountable if we want to remain free. We cannot give a pass to our kids when they misbehave or act out. If we don’t set standards for them and demand they meet those standards, they end up derelicts on the street, criminals, or workers and businessmen without a moral compass …. or God forbid, Democrats.
John Scolinos, a famous baseball coach, gave a speech at a coach convention in Nashville, TN back in January of 1996. John stated that: “This is the problem in our homes today, with our marriages, with the way we parent our kid and with our lack of discipline. We don’t teach accountability to our kids, and there is no consequence for failing to meet standards. This is the problem in our schools today. The quality of our education is going downhill fast and teachers have been stripped of the tools they need to be successful, and to educate and discipline our young people.”
If our young people are not brought up with true knowledge, discipline, standards and moral underpinnings, they will be incapable of holding government accountable and will be easily manipulated by or become dependent on government.
We are running out of time. So just how long will self-reliant, independent, responsible Americans, worried about the loss of their freedoms and the collapse of the Republic, put up with:
The government erecting a multitude of new offices, and sending hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
The government has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving its assent to their acts of pretended legislation:
For imposing huges taxes on us without our consent to pay for the unconstitutional promises they have made to millions of our citizens for their votes.
For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.
We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred. to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
Millions of Americans have not seen this language before, or know the vital importance of its words, because they have no knowledge of how America came into being and the fundamentals of liberty contained in its beginning documents. They are truly freedom ignorant. How can they defend or care about what they don’t know?
The first reaction to tyranny is resistance. The final reaction to tyranny is revolution. We are in the first stages in the reaction to tyranny and we strongly urge Americans to resist wherever they can before the second stage becomes unavoidable? All it takes is a flash point and the whole experiment with freedom could begin to unravel overnight, if it hasn’t already.
But then how can we peacefully stop a tyrannical government and the mob mentality it created, if we don’t have the votes? Short of revolution, there is only open and defiant resistance.
Ladies and gentlemen, the colonials broke with England in revolution for far less than what the American government has heaped upon its citizens in the quest for power, lust, greed and control over the masses. If government continues this abuse and usurpations upon its citizens, eventually they will make “peaceful revolution impossible and make violent revolution inevitable.”
America is about to boil over, especially if Hillary Clinton is elected President. That 86,000,000 minority that is paying for everything, the rich and middle class alike, may just decide to stop paying. Some of the wealthiest among us already have. If that 86,000,000 minority wants to be free from the yoke of liberal servitude they had better start resisting and they better start now because their vote means nothing against the liberal mob.
When the checks don’t show up at the welfare or unemployment office, or there is no food at the local Albertson’s store, we guarantee you there will be riots, mayhem and burnings in the street in every city in America. That leads to insurrection and civil war. In such an event, what is to stop the government from declaring martial law and suspending the constitution and all of the rights it promises? Absolutely nothing! Abraham Lincoln and Congress suspended Habeas Corpus during the Civil War. It’s only a small step to suspend the whole constitution, or to confiscate all your money you have in the bank, or in your retirement accounts.
The fate of America, freedom or tyranny, is in the hands of its people that is if the people have even the slightest concept of what freedom means or place any value on it. We’re not convinced they do because of several generations of Progressive and one-world-government brainwashing.

Some people still aren’t sure on this point, so just for the record, yes: US government propaganda use against American citizens has been fully made legal.
You see kids, once upon a time in 1948, we had something known as the Smith-Mundt Act (or, more officially, The US Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948). This act specified the State Department’s propaganda operations outside (key word “outside”) of US borders in a shift from wartime to peacetime use of propaganda as an instrument of the new post-World War II foreign policy.
The first restriction on this act was to prohibit domestic propaganda dissemination, with assurances that Congress, academia, and the mainstream media would filter out the foreign propaganda. As you can see, that obviously worked out really well.
Anyway, fast forward to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013, in which the Smith-Mundt Act was officially amended to allow materials produced by the State Department and Broadcasting Board of Governors to be released inside the United States.
In other words, Government use of propaganda against the American people became legal.
And free game. Obviously. Why else would we have scenes like this State Department spokesman bursting into laughter at welcoming the journalists to his press conference, which he referred to sarcastically as an “exercise in transparency and democracy”:
They aren’t even trying to pretend anything they say is true anymore.

Years ago there was a wonderful TV commercial with a feisty old woman who looked at her puny fast food sandwich, wrinkled her nose and spouted, “Where’s the beef?”
Now you’ve got another feisty old lady saying, “Where’s the mandate?”
You’ve all learned that the United States is not America. You’ve learned that, most likely, you aren’t a “United States Citizen” nor a “citizen of the United States”, either. You’ve learned that their elections aren’t our elections. You’ve learned that they are not the actual government of this country—- just a foreign jurisdictional enclave and a corporation under contract to provide us and our Several States of the Union with “essential governmental services”—–Well, there is something else you have to think about now.
All your life you have heard it endlessly repeated: “Democracy, Democracy, Democracy…..” as if “democracy” were some great thing and we were proud to be a “democracy”—–but America was never a “democracy”. The 50 nation states are all republics, and republics are very, very different from democracies.
Republics honor and protect each one of the people. Democracies have no respect for your one-each rights at all. They function by Mob Rule— whatever the majority wants, the majority gets.
So, if 51% of your neighbors want to eat you for Christmas Dinner, that’s a-okay in a “democracy.” If they want to steal your land, that’s okay, too. If they want to rape your daughters or your house guests like in old Sodom and Gomorrah, well, what do you think?
Your country–meaning your state of the Union— is not a “democracy” and you certainly don’t want to spread “democracy” around the world.
But there is one thing about a “democracy”—- it requires a “majority” to work, and without a majority, it doesn’t have a mandate to act—-even according to its own profoundly disgusting rules.
Take that fact in— without a majority there is no mandate.
Now, let’s do another little thought—
Only about half of the potential “voters” are registered to vote, and of those, only about 30% regularly show up at the polls, and that 30% is split roughly down the middle into two political parties, one of which will get the lion’s share of votes so that at the end of the day, only about 15% of those “represented” actually get their own way—-and that number is FAR, FAR less than 50% of anything, much less a popular mandate from over half of the entire population.
It’s a tiny percentage of people that are actually being represented by all these frou-frou-rah elections. There hasn’t been an honest mandate in this country in my lifetime. So, by their own rules, and their own admissions, nothing these jokers have done has had a mandate.
None of it is lawful even under their own system.
The perpetrators have tried to excuse themselves by pretending that whatever “the majority of those who show up at the polls” wants is a mandate, but it’s not.
The “demos” is the entire group of voters and they never get close to 50% of that group on one side of anything, much less any popular mandate from the public at large.
So not only have you been lied to and not only has a stinking immoral “democracy” been enabled to usurp the republican form of government you are heir to and owed, but they haven’t even been able to operate a democracy lawfully.
They have no mandate. And in my lifetime they have never had a mandate. Ever.

I cannot imagine how it is possible for cognitive dissonant people to continue in their insane attachment to AMERICAN PROPAGANDA. They literally believe any and every thing their teachers, media and politicians tell them is the truth, so help them God. Anyone with half a brain should know by now that voting is no different than pissing upwind.

The Cheapest, Most Efficient Prison of All – Your Own Mind
From the cradle onward we are deliberately taught to think in ways that profit our predators. This is done by those who stand to profit from these purposefully engendered failures of logic.
For example—remember yourself as a child playing with a set of colored blocks, marbles, or similar objects. What were you taught to focus on?
You were taught to focus on and identify differences—- difference of color, size, shape, texture, material, transparency—any kind of difference at all was important and emphasized and you were required to recognize and note it. The sameness or similarity of things was used merely as a means to identify differences. Why?
Why isn’t recognizing similarities inherently as important as recognizing differences?
Without recognizing similarities first, we wouldn’t be able to discern differences, but similarities are downplayed because similarities provide the basis for unity and peace and compassion.
Those who profit from keeping us divided and endlessly at war don’t want us to think in terms of similarities. If we did, we would see the way this learned emphasis on differences allows us to be manipulated and misled, how it teaches us to fear, how it nurtures prejudice of all kinds, and how it makes us susceptible pawns for war-mongers and demagogues.
This early emphasis on perceiving differences also leads us to think in terms of parts instead of wholes, and in terms of “us” versus “them”.
This same learned perceptual prejudice results in instinctively thinking in terms of “either/or” when we would be better served by thinking in terms of “and”.
We are taught to think in terms of endless duality: good versus bad, rich versus poor, right versus wrong, black versus white, Democrat versus Republican, Baptist versus Catholic—-all because it is easier to limit and control and manipulate us when we think this way. The slave masters set up the two goads and drive us endlessly between them, and our patterned way of thinking prevents us from breaking free. We become like “dumb, driven cattle” caught between the carrot and the stick, never questioning who is manipulating us or for what reasons.
In the same way we are taught to think in terms of groups, not individuals. The value of “teamwork” and “command structure” is drummed into us until we feel useless and paralyzed as individuals. We innocently accept such concepts as “collective guilt” or “shared pain” or “group action”—–none of which really exists.
The individual is the unit of human experience—and is also the limit and expression of all human experience. All the pain that can ever be felt is felt only by individuals –one by one– and it is the same with guilt, happiness, or any other emotion. All actions are taken by individuals—one by one. If you stop and think beyond the outright false or half-truth assumptions you’ve been taught—- “we” are only sums of “I’s”.
The purposefully induced habit of thinking in terms of groups instead of individuals makes us susceptible to harmful, self-defeating assumptions of all kinds. This is why I meet patriots who feel paralyzed like deer in the headlights: oh, my, I don’t have a group! So what do these well-intentioned people do? They set out to create a group or to find a group—not realizing that they already belong to a magnificent and powerful group known as “State Citizens”.
What they really accomplish by this “group forming” is splintering off into thousands of worthy little specialized closet groups concerned about this or that small aspect of the whole problem, all claiming turf and fighting with and discrediting other such groups, everyone competing for donation money, and nobody getting any closer to seeing –much less addressing– the very real problems that are bearing down on us.
Hand in hand with the rest of the Group Think Tradition, we have been taught that our country is a democracy. It’s not. It’s a Republic. Democracy embraces mob rule, which means rule of the individual by the group. If the group wants your house, they can take it. If the group wants to tax you to pay their bills, they can. That is democracy.
Our American form of government is not based on groups of any kind. It is based on Individualism. It says very forthrightly that the individual is owed supremacy over the group when it comes to matters of free will, conscience, religion, and property rights. In a Republic, the mob can’t tax you to pay for their bills. They can’t take away your house or your land to serve themselves just because 51 out of a 100 group members say so.
Thinking in terms of groups instead of individuals has been taught to you on purpose and with malice-aforethought by the self-interested governmental services corporations. These government entities want you to subject yourself to the whims of the crowd, to derive your own identity from your group, to conform in every respect to the herd mentality—-because, again, this makes it easier to defraud you and control you, easier to train you as a soldier, and easier to milk you dry as a taxpayer.
Hand in hand with “Group Think” comes the learned behavior of looking for authority outside yourself –which leads us to misunderstand the nature and source of authority. All authority, like all experience, depends entirely on individuals, not groups, not hierarchies. All groups and hierarchies always derive any authority they possess secondhand, by delegation. Authority simply does not exist apart from the authority of individual people who may retain their own rulership or give it away as a proxy, recall it at will, or ignorantly deny that they have authority.
How many modern Americans stand around whining about this or that, without it ever entering their heads that they have the authority to choose otherwise? That they are in fact responsible for making other choices if they want things to change? That they can withdraw their granted authority at will? And that they are responsible for doing so, when the “government” defaults on its contracts?
How many Americans have meekly assumed that a foreign governmental services corporation headquartered in Washington, DC, has the authority to order them to buy health insurance from the company store?
We are also falsely taught to respect authority figures whether they earn that respect or not. For example, we are taught to respect Congressmen simply because of their office, no matter how criminal, stupid, immoral, uncaring, greedy, selfish, arrogant or irresponsible they are as individuals.
We are taught to turn off our common sense when dealing with government officials of any kind, from abusive traffic cops to corrupt judges. We are taught that the normal rules of a decent society do not apply to them and that furthermore, we are not capable of applying such rules to them.
We are taught to trust these so-called “officials” with our lives and our land and our pocketbooks without question, when sound reasoning and past history should prove beyond any doubt that they deserve to come under the severest kind of discipline and scrutiny.
So who or what is teaching us to think in these irrational, destructive, self-defeating ways? The public school system and the government-owned media cartels feed us lies and fear-mongering and twisted logic on purpose. It’s called propaganda and we are immersed in it. For a period of time between 1987 and 1989 a group of us kept a nightly tally of news stories being presented on the three major evening news programs: CBS, NBC, and ABC. What we found should shock any thinking person.
We each kept a tally sheet with three columns. One column was headed “Death”, a second column was headed “Sex” and a third column was headed “Other” to account for all other story subjects combined.
More than ninety out of a hundred stories on all three networks concerned either death or sex as the main subject, out of those over 60 percent contained elements of both sex and death.
The Spinmeisters are tweaking our thought patterns and training us to think that (1) sex and death are so very, very important, and (2) that there is a grim and terrifying world we need all sorts of protection from. The overall affect is to generate sales of consumer goods because you are going to die and you might as well get some, and secondly, to generate fear and distrust and a sense of foreboding conducive to keeping people in line and isolated and convincing them that they need more and more and more governmental services. More surveillance. More regulation. More police. The evening news is just another sales pitch for Uncle Sam.
The trusting pre-conditioned public never stops to wonder about this thoroughly predictable slant of the “news” programming.
We are not served by a media system that specializes in such “news” —we are served up.
Think about what you are thinking and feeling about yourself, about your world, and about other people around you. Step back. Look at it as a Third Party. Ask—who or what benefits from this? Why do I feel anxious and isolated every time I watch the evening news? Why am I looking at all the differences in the world, instead of all the similarities? Why am I kept in a constant state of fear? Why should I put up with being bullied and taxed into oblivion by my own employees? Whose authority is being delegated —and abused—-to run this cesspool?
You are the one who granted all that authority in the first place. You are paying Mr. Obama and funding his mercenary armies, poised to come roust you out of your homes. You are standing there sending petitions to deaf ears in Washington. But most of all, you are imprisoned by your own mind, by your own indoctrination, to think that you are helpless, that you don’t have a voice, that your individual choices and actions don’t matter.
There are only individuals on earth. One by one, we tune out the mind fuzz, one by one we reclaim our own authority, and one by one we start taking action. We don’t need groups. We don’t need money. We don’t need authority figures telling us what to do. All we need is to wake up and look around and face the truth. And then one by one, just as surely, we will start to take action to defend our own interests.
Most of us will pull all our money out of the banks. Most of us will give notice to that THING in Washington, DC, that we are not “US citizens” of any stripe. Some will start demanding the release of plentiful quantities of United States Currency Notes for our own trade purposes. Others will plant their own Victory Gardens. Still more will expose the corruption of the courts. More will start newspaper and production companies to share the real news. All of us, one by one, will move forward by the individual lights we see and before you know it, those 515 people in Washington, DC who are responsible for this mess are going to get the Sleeping Giant’s message without the benefit of loudspeakers or public programming.
Stop worrying. Stop spinning your wheels. Stop trying to get elected. Stop trying to elect anyone else. There are no legitimate American public offices left to fill at this time, except County Sheriffs, Notaries, Grand Juries, County Judges, and County Coroners. Forget about political parties. Those are just the goads, positive and negative, there to fool you and deplete your time, money, and energy. Don’t sign petitions addressed to your runaway servants. Don’t vote in their private elections. Just vacate your prison like they vacated their public offices. Tell the Secretary of the Treasury that you were defrauded and your ESTATE was included in the bankruptcy proceedings of the United States of America, Inc. by mistake and you don’t intend that it is going to be rolled over as surety for the bankruptcy of Puerto Rico. Tell him to fork over access to your individual trust account and to re-educate the Internal Revenue Service as to its actual purpose.
One by one and letter by letter, notice by notice, point by point and day by day—keep calm and get even.

By Michael Gaddy- – – – email@example.com
Our country and perhaps the entire world is doomed because the overwhelming majority of people have lost their ability to think cognitively instead of basing their strongly held convictions on emotionalism. Most people on this planet are more fearful than knowledgeable. The sheer lack of knowledge concerning human behavior is overwhelming. Could it be this fear and lack of historical knowledge has created an environment in which freedom and liberty cannot possibly exist?
Shortly before the November election of 2014, a poll was taken concerning the confidence of the people of this country in their members of Congress. Only 11% of the people expressed confidence in the ability of Congress to do their jobs, yet, in that year’s congressional election over 96% of congressional incumbents were reelected. The only way this can be explained is in most areas of this country Americans are fine with the crook they know, it’s just everyone else’s crook who should not be elected.
So, should the average American voter be in fear of Congress? After all, it’s just 535 people on their team and over 300 million people they supposedly represent, the majority of which does not trust them. Does the mere thought or image of Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Chuckie Schumer, Tammy Baldwin, Jared Polis, and David Cicilline strike fear into the hearts of mortal men?
Each and every elected official and most of those appointed to government bureaucratic positions take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. Ostensibly, the Constitution should be the prime directive for all of those who take this oath. Unfortunately for freedom and liberty, our members of Congress do not regularly follow their oaths to uphold and defend. As a matter of fact, of all 535 members of the House of Representatives and US Senate, less than one percent (.0693%) of these members vote in support of their sacred oath at least 70% of the time. 46% of the members of Congress vote constitutionally just over 50% of the time while a whopping 32% vote with our Constitution less than 25% of the time.
For the record, Hillary Clinton’s VP running mate, Tim Kaine, as a member of Congress, voted constitutionally only 1% of the time, yet her campaign, via CNN, has voiced concerns that a Trump presidency will destroy the Constitution.
Considering the above, I believe it would be logical to state less than half of the laws passed by our Congress are constitutional in nature. Perhaps this is why we fear these people; because they have the ability to destroy our individual freedoms, but they do not have within themselves the ability to force compliance with those unconstitutional mandates. That is where the people with uniforms and badges come into play. As paradoxical as it appears, most Americans fear those who pass unconstitutional pieces of legislation but worship at the feet of those who have/will enforce those unconstitutional laws.
And, if you believe for a millisecond that cops and soldiers will not come to your door to seize constitutionally owned firearms if ordered to do so by those who refuse to abide by their own sacred oaths, you are ignorant/delusional beyond comprehension or help.
Pursuing the same points, there appear to be tens of millions of people who are petrified of the thought that Hillary might become our next president. Why should anyone fear a 69-year-old crime family moll who needs help walking up stairs, has obvious seizures and is otherwise mentally deranged?
If we had a constitutionally operating government, Hillary could do little to nothing criminal or tyrannical, even if elected, because she would be surrounded by those who hold that document to be important enough to follow it unconditionally despite threats or promises of financial gain.
A good case can be made that considering the absolute criminal nature of our present government, Hillary Clinton is by far the most qualified candidate to run such a criminal enterprise as criminal-in-chief. Many people fear what Hillary will do with the current powers of the office of president of this country, but almost all of those unconstitutional powers have been accumulated in that office many years prior because the voters of this country were OK with creating a political criminal enterprise as long as that enterprise was run by a candidate of the party of their choosing.
Voters–stand and behold the criminal enterprise of your creation which was constructed under the two major political party paradigm and the millions who have for decades rationalized away voting for the lesser of evils. A constitutional form of government is incompatible with any level of evil; to expect a different outcome is to be delusional or psychopathic.
Millions of gun owners fear that Hillary might be able to push through draconian, unconstitutional gun confiscation either through our corrupt congress or perhaps through executive order. I state again: if Hillary were to do so, neither she nor members of congress or the Supreme Court will be coming to your door to demand you surrender these firearms. No, she and Congress will send the standing armies our anti-Federalist ancestors warned us about and they will strongly resemble those who went door-to-door in New Orleans after Katrina and Boston after the bombing. Will you still be licking their boots and making excuses for their unconstitutional behavior as they terrorize your family and neighbors and carry off your legally owned firearms? What happens to you and your family if you refuse to comply?
The police are all too happy to remind you that you have no right to resist an unconstitutional act performed by a government employee in uniform. Actually, you do–but don’t forget how many times you voted for the unconstitutional lesser of two evils which has delivered as advertised, obscuring this constitutional right. Your votes have eliminated “the law of nature and nature’s God (Common law) as contained in the Declaration of Independence and our Bill of Rights and replaced it with the laws of the international banking cartel.
“nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…” ~ 5th Amendment.
Everything you see happening in this country today that brings fear to your heart was brought about by voting for candidates who would or had violated their sacred oath. Now, that you have repeatedly voted for evil of the lesser variety, please stop complaining about having to live with an evil enterprise of your own creation.
The one issue that continues to confound me is how so many Americans who claim to support our Constitution and Bill of Rights continue to stand in awe of those who make up the standing army. How can a member of Congress who writes or votes for unconstitutional, therefore illegal legislation, a president who signs this illegal act into law or a clown in a black gown who says that law is legal because of precedent be held in such foul regard but the person who enforces that illegal legislation is deemed a hero?
9/11 and its implausible cause, as explained by these people we do not trust, was the showpiece that completely destroyed the mirage of constitutional governance in this country. Shortly after the mass murder that was 9/11, George W. Bush’s Secretary of Homeland Security (an integral part of our standing army) Michael Chertoff, a man who is claimed was the author of the Patriot Act and who also holds dual citizenship with Israel, used his position within our standing army to mandate that all American law enforcement personnel be given training by Israeli entities including, of course, Mossad.
Our government, with this training, intended for all US Citizens to become members of an “occupied territory” and not citizens with unalienable rights. The citizens of this country were to be treated as the Palestinians are treated by the Israeli Defense Force and Mossad. Since the implementation of this Mossad backed LEO training, shootings of unarmed civilians in this country have risen by 500%.
Please understand that in no way do I support the movement called “Black Lives Matter” nor do I ignore the stacks of white money behind them. But, one must give the devil his just acclaim. We constantly hear of blacks being the victims of police shootings and the subsequent protests by those within BLM. Whether motivated to attend out of philosophical or moral interests or to receive money promised to protesters on Craigslist, black people assemble nationwide to voice their displeasure with the rapidly increasing number of black people dying, many unarmed, at the hands of members of our standing army.
While it is true that proportionate to population, a higher percentage of blacks are shot by police than are whites, in real numbers, more whites are shot by police than are blacks. Yet, where are the protests by whites? Considering the majority of cop worshipers are of the white persuasion, perhaps they would rather ignore or rationalize away what should be obvious to Ray Charles: we live in a heavily militarized police state where individual, unalienable rights are a thing of the past.
As can be found in the book by Milton Mayer titled “They Thought They Were Free” all too many Americans believe they are free, or at the very least–safe. Like the Germans of the 1930’s and early to mid-1940’s, we are anything but free and Liberty is an illusion.
Our government is a completely criminal enterprise as has been seen recently in the ability of Hillary Clinton to avoid criminal prosecution for serious crimes over several decades and the failure of our government to indict members of the standing army who routinely shoot unarmed citizens.
Our government is not constrained by the limits of a Constitution as the great majority of those whose job is to legislate, completely ignore their sacred oaths when it comes to the performance of their jobs.
The law enforcement personnel in this country, at all levels, do “protect and serve” but they only protect and serve the government agencies they represent. The people of this country have all become “perps” and will be treated accordingly, regardless of race. All members of law enforcement have become members of the “standing army” or “federal and state sheriffs” we were warned about consistently by many of our founders. Worship, honor, and refer to them as “heroes” at your peril. They will consistently enforce the unconstitutional laws passed by various legislatures because they see “duty” to the criminal government as a higher calling than their oaths to uphold and defend our unalienable rights. Besides, honoring one’s sacred oath is not a path to success in this standing army.
Black citizens at least have the courage to stand and protest the uncalled for shooting of innocent black folks. Whites routinely ignore the members of their own race who are shot and killed at the hands of members of our standing army. Perhaps the blatant murders of LaVoy Finicum and Jack Yantis by members of the standing army would have received more attention and outrage had Finicum and Yantis been black instead of white? Why are there no activists groups known as “White Lives Matter?” Lavoy Finicum was shot in the back and the evidence of the murder of rancher Jack Yantis is overwhelming but ignored and condoned by the “authorities.” Please take the time to read William Grigg’s excellent work on the murder of Jack Yantis in the link above.
As previously stated, it is more and more obvious our central government is completely criminal in most of its functions, as witnessed by their unconstitutional votes and actions. Therefore, this government will not allow anyone to interfere with their goals or agendas which line their pockets and the pockets of their criminal supporters. It matters not whom you vote for.
This criminal enterprise will do whatever necessary to ensure the continuity of their plans. Simply stated, should Trump be elected, he is acceptable to the criminal cabal that controls this government. More than likely criminals will do what they do best and fix the election in their favor. The evidence of past crimes in this arena is abundant.
Lastly, the criminals will not be denied. Justice cannot triumph in a society where justice is negotiable.

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false,” ClA Directory William Casey, 1981
Our times are punctuated by, putting it mildly, Fantastic Deceptions. The coming election, the candidates, the veracity of the election itself are riddled with deception.
The Trump campaign on the outside, from a traditional white American point of view, appears to be in support of traditional American values such as nationalism, borders, financial transparency and accountability, Constitutional government and more.
The Clinton campaign has the appearance of long standing democratic anti-American values, massive corruption, tainted team members, a history of violence against America and a flaunted hatred of white people and the rule of law.
In fact, the Clinton-Trump dialectic has the appearance of a final war between Americans for a sovereign, Constitutional America and The New America as a multicultural, open border, Lawless component of a North American Union, later to be included as a member territory in the One World Government.
But, I believe this situation, this election, the players and the stakes are far different than can be seen through the lens of traditional thinking and understanding.
Eric Blair (aka, George Orwell) wrote a book (1984), a sort-of bible, cryptically written as a dystopic Novel, but, in fact, it was a book of knowledge exposing an evolving, hidden at the time, mentally ill and malevolent, patently hostile paradigm change planned for the Western World and later the entire planet. Of course, Orwell would not be able to write a non-fiction book about this plan, packaged as a warning to mankind – so he manufactured a book of fiction with real information for those that could decipher the meaning.
One line in Orwell’s book is, “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”. — We are living in THE TIME of UNIVERSAL DECEIT.
American as a nation is not under the control an Organic Constitutional Government. The US Government was officially gone by 1933 with major in-roads by the usurpers made in 1870, 1913 and finally 1933.
The United States is a foreign corporation, with a corporate board of directors and system of corporate governance based on the Organic Constitution — mimicking the structure and appearance.
We shall soon begin to establish huge monopolies, reservoirs of colossal riches, upon which even large fortunes of the GOYIM will depend to such an extent that they will go to the bottom together with the credit of the States on the day after the political smash. -Protocol of Elders of Zion, VI
It would be magical thinking to believe something as well planned, carefully disguised and concealed, which has been operational since the mid 1930s, and involves hundreds of trillions of dollars of nominal, created and stolen, financial assets could be impeded or even changed by the affect of a national election.
Trump and his campaign are not what Americans are lapping up. Hilary’s campaign has also been frosted with socially acceptable perfumes which mask the rotten and malodorous underside.
The principal factor of success in the political is the secrecy of its undertakings: the word should not agree with the deeds of the diplomat. – Protocols of the Elders of Zion, VII
Trump’s history is tainted with associations with the very same people running Hillary’s campaign. Trump has associations with anti-American Jewish organizations and has made commitments to Israel which subjugate America as a Zionist tool for world conquest (ask yourself why America is busy bombing the middle East and Africa.)
Trump’s family history including the illegal and financially fraudulent business associations and practices of his father are inconsistent with the vision of a self made man ready to wrestle America back from the “globalists’, communists and leftists obviously in political show-positions of power.
Had Trump been a real threat to this monstrosity he would have been “Ron Paul-ed” at the beginning, with the Fake News Networks failing to give Trump TV time, and his election numbers in the primary would have been rigged to prevent early victories. Trump would have then had to take his campaign 3rd party and try to win support via private access channels and other ways around the corporate-controlled media.
The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves. – Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
All of the possible Presidential Candidates have been vetted — Trump and Clinton will be allowed to proceed — because in the end – they will be obedient front men/women acting in the capacity as the CEO of a corrupt sub-corporation of a mega-malevolent super corporation under the control of the IMF and World Bank.
As we move closer to the election, the craziness is going to escalate as this giant election dialectic is expanded — explosive tensions are being created to further divide the two poles of this massively fabricated dialectic. The end result is likely a war itself — all planned, drilled and gamed.
Like a long passenger train at full speed, the end of the track is in site, but the conductors are all in the dining car with the passengers getting drunk.
We must compel the governments of the GOYIM to take action in the direction favored by our widely conceived plan, already approaching the desired consummation, by what we shall represent as public opinion, secretly promoted by us through the means of that so-called “Great Power” – THE PRESS, WHICH, WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS THAT MAY BE DISREGARDED, IS ALREADY ENTIRELY IN OUR HANDS. Protocal VIII
The better solution now would be grass roots attempts to expose Sandy Hook, the Boston Bombing and the massive fraud of 911. The mainstream 911 official story being the most egregious, psychologically debilitating lie, containing a mockery of reality wrapped in an official calumniation created for maximum insult to the public mind at large. Oh how the perpetrating psychopaths must have howled in laughter building memorials to lives lost in airline attacks on buildings when, in fact, there were no airliners flown into buildings at all. The Shanksville crash site did not produce a single bit of airplane wreckage and the “Flight 93 Memorial” cost Americans $70+ million to immortalize a crime and psychological humiliation in thousands of tons of concrete and the repetitive presentations of fabrications and deceptions presented as news during the televised 911 theatre of that day.
Stop watching the propaganda programming of TV and become verbal about No Gun Control and Stop the False Flags. School teachers and officials might become non-silent about the Sandy Hook Hoax and the rest of the people everywhere getting loud when someone attempts to speak of these events as though they were real.
No More Bullshit news, faked events, created real events and support of mercenaries labeled as terrorists.
Maybe enough people could awaken — An army for sanity.

Proper Wording for the Necessary Actions and Documents Part One
Each state is different when it comes to Adult Name Changes. Most states post a simple form on the web if you search for the information using a query like “Adult Name Change California”.
This form asks very basic questions. No, you are not a “United States Citizen” — you are an “Other”, if the form for your state asks, and that means you are a Hawaiian, Texan, Floridian, Wisconsinite, etc. in case anyone asks.
The most important question is— your reason for the name change?
Reply that you wish to adopt the proper English Grammar and your correct Christian appellation.
Nobody can argue with that, especially since the all UPPER CASE style is a “Glossa” and known to be a corruption of Latin that reduces to gibberish and is in a sign language incompatible with English.
You fill out the form, you pay a fee from between $50 and $150, using a Money Order made out to the proper court, and you wait while the court gives public notice. Then you attend a Hearing in person. This takes all of about two minutes. The Judge asks if you are doing this to avoid debt or engage in any illegal purpose. You aren’t, so you answer— no. You wait again, for a final public notice period. The court issues a decree officially changing your name back to the Upper and Lower Case form.
In most states you get a certified copy of the actual Court Order. This will have wet-ink signatures and a blue wet-ink stamp on it. If you don’t receive this in the mail, you will have to go to the Court Clerk and request (and pay for) a certified copy of the Court Order.
Now, you have been made an offer of a new name by the court, and you are going to accept it.
You are going to draft a very simple “Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-conveyance Without Consideration”. You are going to attach this document on top of the certified copy of the court order decreeing the name change—-and you are going to record this package with the local Land Recording Office as a Miscellaneous Land Deed.
Here is an example of what this document needs to say:
“On this 18th day of July in the year 2016 I have received and do accept my own Trade Name doing business as Anna Maria Riezinger and do re-convey it to Lawful Jurisdiction and its native domicile on the soil and the land of the wisconsin state and do place this Deed upon the Alaska State Court of Record, Third Postal District, in token of my action.”
In the example, the 18th of July was the first full effective day of the name change decree–that is, the day AFTER the day set by the court as the “effective date” of the change, which was July 17, 2016. Doing it the day after means that there is no possible question of whether the decree was in effect or not.
Stipulating that the Name received is your own Trade Name prevents any further shimmy-shally claim that it is a Foreign Situs Trust or other incorporated franchise name.
Re-conveying to “Lawful Jurisdiction” spells out that you are operating under the actual Constitution and Common Law and placing the Name back in its “native domicile on the soil and land” makes it absolutely clear that it is not naturally subject to international jurisdiction. “Soil” is the actual “dust” from which we are formed and “land” is the mixture of “soil and water” standing upright which our bodies are.
Please note that it is the “soil and land” of the “wisconsin state”—I was born and raised in Wisconsin, so whatever soil and water made me came from wisconsin, the actual, factual organic state. Use the name of your birth state written in all small letters to express this fact: nevada, north carolina, florida, texas, etc.
Please note that the Deed is being placed on the “Alaska State Court of Record” —- not any “State of Alaska Court”—because I am now living in Alaska and filing a Land Asset Deed through the Alaska Recorder’s Office. It goes in the Miscellaneous file, because there are no metes and bounds or other geographic description of “Anna Maria Riezinger”— even though I am made of “land” and am considered a land asset.
Thanks to chicanery that went on after the Civil War, the land jurisdiction “State” was separated from the sea jurisdiction “State”, and the difference was designated by referring to either the “Florida State” (land) or the “State of Florida” (sea) for example. In the same way the courts are all separated:
The Alaska State Superior Court operates on the land jurisdiction, whereas the “State of Alaska” Courts operate in one of two other capacities—-either as (1) private, in-house corporate tribunals of the local “State of” franchise, or (2) as maritime/admiralty courts in the international jurisdiction of the sea.
The same applies at the “district” level—- the United States District Court, Third Postal District is a land court, but the United States District Court, Third Judicial District is a sea court.
As you are land and belong to the land all actions regarding your Trade Name must be addressed to the land jurisdiction State, land jurisdiction Court of Record, land jurisdiction district, etc. using the name conventions like this: Iowa State, Iowa State Court, Iowa State Assembly, Iowa State……and any action you bring before a district court must be brought in the “Postal District” not the “Judicial District”.
Okay, so now that you know all the background behind this simple little “Deed”, you take it to the Land Recording Office and record it. If you live in a state where the Recorder’s Office also collects taxes, you ask them to apply the $9 RHSP stamp to your deed, and you place a $1 Global Postage Stamp on the face of the Deed to be recorded.
This fulfills a $10 “stamp tax” that was imposed in 1802 for the cost of “reconveying” an asset from the sea jurisdiction to the land jurisdiction.
If you live in a state where the Recorder’s Office is separate from the tax collection agency, you will have to take a certified copy of your recorded “Deed” to the taxing agency and have them apply the RHSP stamp, put the $1 Global Postage Stamp on the face of your certified copy, and then re-record this completed “stamped and certified” Deed back through the Recorder’s Office again.
These Rotters don’t make it easy. They only charge $9 for the stamp leaving you a “dollar short and a day late”—-unless you give them the additional “good and equitable service” of the postage stamp applied to the front of the document.
No matter what, you now have all the information you need to dance through their maze and get to your goal— a “Deed” to your own Trade Name properly stamped and paid for, recorded, and if necessary, re-recorded.
Finally, you are ready to serve Notice on the Court of your return action. For this you draft up another simple little form of your own making.
In the upper right hand corner in small print you write your name and mailing address and telephone number. You title this document the same way the name change decree is titled— for example, “IN THE SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE STATE OF IDAHO AT BOISE”.
You identify your Upper and Lower Case Name as the “Plaintiff” and the all UPPER CASE NAME as the “Defendant” and you reference the Case Number of the Name Change action.
Then write another title, such as “Notice of Deed”, and a brief statement to the effect and for example: “I, Elizabeth Ann Crowley, hereby give notice of my acknowledgement and acceptance and re-conveyance of my Trade Name Elizabeth Ann Crowley to the land jurisdiction of the idaho state. I am attaching a certified copy of the recorded Deed to be annexed to the court file. Notice to agents is notice to principals, notice to principals is notice to agents.”
Sign it and date it and certify it —- meaning, at the bottom of the page write:
“I certify that on ______________a true, complete, and correct copy of this Notice and supporting documents attached was hand-delivered to the Clerk of the above named COURT.” —and sign and date that again.
Make two copies of this Notice of Deed, one attached to the certified copy of the recorded Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-Conveyance Without Consideration, and one in your hand to be date stamped as received by the Clerk of the COURT for your records.
If you are as paranoid as I am, you may want to trot right on over to the Recorder’s Office and have your date-stamped Notice of Deed recorded and annexed to the already recorded Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-Conveyance.
Congratulations! You are back where you started, standing on Terra Firma as an American State National in control of your Trade Name and with the bit between your teeth! You will still have to take additional steps to regain control of the ALL CAPS “person”, but that is coming soon.

THIS IS A MUST READ
By Anna Von Reitz
Numerous people have asked me— if the former Popes have done all these ugly things to our country and worked with the British Monarch to betray our trust and do evil to us, why are you, our Champion, being so polite to Pope Francis?
I realize that to many people this is all confusing. How can I claim to have my blood on the alter of the “Catholic Church” and yet be a Lutheran? How is it that I sue the Pope and yet greet him respectfully? If the Holy See is the hub of all this nastiness, why not just “go for the kill” and denounce the Roman Catholic hierarchy down to its toenails?
Let’s go in reverse— why don’t I denounce the Roman Catholic Church and the Holy See? The first answer is that the Roman Catholic Church isn’t really a “thing” though we think of it that way. In actual fact, the Roman Catholic Church is made up of people. And people make mistakes. So I accord the whole Church all the same dispensations that are owed to any one of us. The Church is allowed to make mistakes and commit horrible sins, but it is also allowed to admit errors and correct them and go forward.
Now the ball is in their court. The evidence of grave error and sin has been presented to the Church leadership since 2008. Pope Benedict repented and promised to make amends. Pope Francis made a good start with his Motu Proprio and clean out of the Vatican Bank and now we are waiting in limbo. What next?
We have waited three years in good faith for correction of the administration of the governments of the world, the banks, the IRS (which is, among other things, the Vatican’s Bill Collector), the Bar Associations. These corrections are all within the ability and duty of the Pope to correct, but similar to steering a Supertanker through shoal water, it takes time to do—especially when the ship has been off course for five generations.
While eight years total and the last three years especially seems like a very long time, it isn’t when measured on the time scale of the whole fraud, which has been ongoing for a hundred and fifty years.
If you read Principles of Ecclesiastical Law you will realize that all corporations on Earth are subject to the Roman Curia and the Roman Pontiff.
These corporations— IBM, Exxon, Pepsi-Cola—–things which we personify much as we do the Church, are not really things. They are organizations of men. Many of these organizations of men don’t realize that their corporate charter is issued by the Pope, but, in the end, so it is. The Roman Curia invented corporations as an entire concept—- foundations, trusts, cooperatives—you name it, they invented it. They hold the patent of patents on the fictional world. It is their enchilada entirely. And, as such, they are responsible for it, by Maxim of Law.
So, we have a great war going on, between what is actual and factual, and what is merely imagined and accepted as real—- and the Pope is the Comptroller.
For example, there is no such thing as the “government of Germany”. The government of Germany is just a group of Germans acting under a corporate charter being paid out of a public purse collected from the labor and assets of the German people. It’s a gang of public servants. What happens if they forget their mission as public servants?
You are left with nothing but a gang.
The corporate “Federal government” in America has acted for itself against the people it is meant to serve. It has gone rogue and started going rogue a 150 years ago when Congress set up its own little oligarchy in the District of Columbia and created the Municipal Corporation of the District of Columbia as the organization to run its “District” government.
The way out of this is to remember what is true and act upon it.
I have addressed the Pope in his role as Pontiff to clean up the corporations, because that’s his job. So far as I can see, he has been slowly but surely taking appropriate actions.
At the same time I have taken hold of the actual factual world and addressed the people who make up these corporations and the people who buy products and services from these organizations.
It does no good to scream and shout and brow beat or blame anyone when you have a dysfunctional world careening out of control. What does help is forming a mutual understanding of what is wrong and a mutual determination to fix it.
So long as the present Pope is willing to move forward to correct the corporations and clean up this mess, I have no quarrel with him or his Office and I certainly have nothing against the 1.2 billion members of the Catholic Church.
So long as the members of “Congress” move forward to correct the operations of the “Federal Government” and its subcontracting “Departments” and “Agencies” I have no quarrel with them, either.
But it doesn’t stop there with prodding these officials to take correction, we all have to realize that we are responsible ourselves. We cannot afford to stake our lives and hopes on what a Pope or a Congress does or doesn’t do. We have to get off our duffs and sort things out for ourselves.
That means taking control of your own lives and identities first and foremost, starting with reclaiming your Trade Name— for example, John Michael Doe.
This Trade Name was given to you jointly by your parents who created it and your ancestors from whom you inherited it. It’s yours in the same sense that any material possession is yours—like a bicycle or a chest of drawers that you own outright.
Yet, within days of your nativity on this Earth, your Trade Name was seized upon and unlawfully and secretively “redefined” as a Foreign Situs Trust belonging to a private, bankrupt governmental services corporation. The British Crown seized hold of the copyright to your name, even though you are the lawful Holder in Due Course.
This is the Central Crime, the center of the spider’s web.
The Trustees responsible for the administration of the bankruptcy of a governmental services corporation doing business as the United States of America, Inc., “seized upon” your estate and the value of your labor as a means to pay off the debts accrued by that corporation before you were born. They did this even though they knew you were totally unaware of this cozy arrangement.
And they are attempting to do the same thing again, only with a different governmental services corporation and a different NAME that is merely “attributed” to you.
To overcome this, you have to take back your Trade Name — formally change from the NAME represented as JOHN MICHAEL DOE back to John Michael Doe and claim it as your own property and define it as a Trade Name and expatriate it back on the land jurisdiction of the United States where you were born.
Now you are finally back to Square One. You have what you always should have had— and what you were swindled out of by fraud committed against you by your own employees while you were still in your cradle—your Trade Name in your control and standing on the land of your own country.
From this point on, you are in the Driver’s Seat. You can reclaim your estate in sum total. You can re-convey and expatriate JOHN MICHAEL DOE, too. And you can kick the “US Trustees” rumps to the moon, because you are the lawful beneficiary and they have allowed all this criminality to go on. You no longer have to fight the constant “presumption” that you are a “United States Citizen” or “citizen of the United States”.
As you are reclaiming your own identity and estate, you can do the same for your birth State of the Union.
You can next start operating your lawful government — once you have reclaimed your own Trade Name and expatriated it back to the “soil and land” of your birth, you can form your jural assemblies, your jury pools, and elect your judges, sheriffs, and other public officers who are committed to enforcing the public and organic law of this country and not the statutes and codes of a privately owned and operated commercial corporation.
The same steps are needed and necessary in nearly every country in Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan, and many others.
My point is that nobody has to wait for the Pope or any political cult members to do anything for you. It is their duty to act and to clean up this gross corruption, but you have a duty, too, to yourself, to your family, to your country—-to get your records straightened out and reclaim your birthright and complain about the swindle and get your own actual government up and running as it should.
Now– as to the original question about why I am polite and why I don’t just utterly condemn the Holy See for all the evil it has perpetuated in this world, I will repeat comments I made earlier today in a private conversation about this seeming anomaly:
Being polite to the Devil was what Jesus did.
If you think about it, all things are made by and controlled ultimately by “God”—-including Satan.
So, what gives?
Remember when you were learning to walk or when you observed someone else learning to walk? What happens?
You fall down a lot of times before you stand up. And you “toddle” a lot before you walk.
It is the same way with spiritual growth. There has to be a way to test your knowledge of “Good and Evil”—–how else can you learn that lesson?
So evil has to be present in this world until we are able to discern it, even when it is well-disguised.
Satan and his henchmen have a very important job to do. They are here to sorely test us and test our discernment as well as our moral fiber. It is their “job” to constantly test and push us, making us experience evil, making us choose between wrong and right, making us “deals” we can’t refuse.
Think of it as one friend put it— that Satan is God’s Vice-President in charge of evil.
And in the end, what is intended for us is good, not evil.
We will learn the secrets of good and evil so that we can never be fooled again. We will be able to discern it and choose against it.
So that is the function of Satan. And that is why Jesus was polite to him and the reason that I am polite to the Pope.
It’s his job to do what he does as Pontiff, and it is my job to catch him out. It is also my job to teach others to discern evil for themselves.
The sooner we all learn this basic skill, the sooner we can be set free—-
To which I will add this parting thought—
Much of what I have observed in the Curia and in the work of the Holy See is not, strictly speaking, evil in itself. It has merely been twisted and used to evil ends by evil men. It is now on our shoulders to demand correction and at the same time to assist in making that correction. We have discerned the evil, described it, and passed that test. Now we have to peacefully, powerfully, and prayerfully move forward to put an end to it.
In the process, we are all called upon to create something new and hopefully wonderful to replace the old system. We live in a time of unprecedented opportunity to birth a New World—- not a “New World Order”.

U.N. Human Rights Council calls for federalization of U.S. law enforcement to be ‘beefed up,’ cover all of America
by Robert Romano
“The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice has provided oversight and recommendations for improvement of police services in a number of cities with consent decrees. This is one of the most effective ways to reduce discrimination in law enforcement and it needs to be beefed up and increased to cover as many of the 18,000-plus local law enforcement jurisdictions.”
WATCH SHORT VIDEO ON MAIN SITE
That was United Nations Rapporteur Maina Kai on July 27, a representative of the U.N. Human Rights Council, who on the tail-end of touring the U.S., endorsed a little-known and yet highly controversial practice by the Justice Department to effect a federal takeover of local police and corrections departments.
The Obama administration has been pursuing the federal takeover of local police right under Congress’ nose — and Republicans in Congress were apparently unaware it was happening.
The consent decrees are already being implemented in Newark, New Jersey; Miami, Florida; Los Angeles, California; Ferguson, Missouri; Chicago, Illinois; and other municipalities.
Here’s how it works: the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice files a lawsuit in federal court against a city, county, or state, alleging constitutional and civil rights violations by the police or at a corrections facility. It is done under 42 U.S.C. § 14141, a section of the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, granting the attorney general the power to prosecute law enforcement misconduct. The municipality then simply agrees to the judicial finding — without contest — and the result is a wide-reaching federal court order that imposes onerous regulations on local police.
The federal court orders are designed to undo Rudy Giuliani-style policing tactics that were effective at reducing crime in big cities in the 1990s and 2000s.
In short, the much-feared nationalization of local police departments is already being initiated by the Obama administration’s Justice Department. And somehow nobody noticed.
Federal requirements include how searches are conducted, what constitutes legitimate use of force, the mandatory use of on-body cameras by the police, and so forth. The agreements impose years-long compliance review regimes, implementation deadlines, and regular reviews by federal bureaucrats. This makes local police directly answerable to the Civil Rights Division at the DOJ.
One example includes a 77-page March 30 consent decree between the department and the City of Newark, New Jersey, that resulted from a 2011 investigation, a 2014 series of findings by the Civil Rights Division, and then finally a federal lawsuit alleging police misconduct in the U.S. District Court in the District of New Jersey.
The original complaint alleged that the Newark Police Department (NPD) “has engaged in a pattern or practice of constitutional violations in its stop and arrest practices, responses to individuals’ exercise of their rights under the First Amendment, uses of force, and theft by officers. The investigation also revealed that the pattern or practice of constitutional violations stems in part from deficiencies in NPD’s systems that are designed to prevent and detect misconduct, including its systems for reviewing force and investigating complaints regarding officer conduct.”
The city of Newark, via the consent decree, agreed to the allegations and to implement a “comprehensive and agency-wide policies and procedures that are consistent with and incorporate all substantive requirements of this agreement,” including rules on stops, searches, use of force, etc. The city has two years to implement, with the full agreement lasting five years. Meaning — even if the political parties change power in the city of Newark, the new mayor and city council would still be required to implement the court order.
U.S. Cities with Active DOJ Consent Decrees
Source: Americans for Limited Government
These consent decrees are in essence regulations. That, is, without the niceties of administrative procedures requirements, public comments, or even any congressional oversight.
Remarkably, congressional offices contacted by this author were generally unaware of the regulation of local policing via DOJ consent decrees with cities — even though the agreements have been implemented for years. Not a single hearing or word of protest has occurred on this topic.
The lack of oversight is pathetic enough — but to make matters even worse, this could actually be the first step in a new wide-ranging body of federal rules on local police.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development regulation “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” (AFFH) actually originated as a consent decree in 2009 against Westchester County, New York, requiring affordable housing units to be built in the county. Afterward, Republican Robert Astorino was elected county executive and yet was still required to implement the court order.
Westchester became the basis for AFFH, where every city and county in the country that accepts any part of $3 billion of annual community development block grants to 1,200 recipient cities and counties now has to comply with HUD’s dictates on zoning along racial and income guidelines.
Obama: ‘We need to temper our words and open our hearts’
DOJ may very well end up doing the same thing with the local police — that is, if Congress does not wise up to what’s really happening and defund implementation of 42 U.S.C. § 14141. This is dangerous. What is most chilling is how far along the Obama Justice Department is in this process. The breadth of regulation here shatters any notion of local governance or federalism. The Obama administration has been pursuing the federal takeover of local police right under Congress’ nose — and Republicans in Congress were apparently unaware it was happening.
No doubt the practice would continue under a Hillary Clinton administration too. Do you want a Clinton Justice Department running your local police force? That is how important the election in November suddenly becomes — with law and order already hanging in the balance and police being targeted by domestic terrorists in the slayings in Dallas and Baton Rouge.
As Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning noted in a statement calling attention to the U.N.’s interest in the DOJ program and urging Congress to act, “The fact that the U.N. Human Rights Council — which includes some of the worst abusers of human rights in the world that hate the U.S. — is cheering for this DOJ national takeover of the police should tell members everything they need to know. It’s time to support local police, not render them impotent via federal restrictions against maintaining law and order. No less than the very existence of local government is at stake.”
Robert Romano is the senior editor of Americans for Limited Government.
What most fail to realize is the U.N. has no damn business in this matter, and this is all part of the globalization of our Country, and if OBUMA had any balls he would tell them THE STATES ARE A SOVEREIGN NATION AND WE HAVE NO AUTHORITY OVER THIS MATTER. This is the same old tired plan of appearing to be doing good while consolidating power over the Nation. Once all the local cops are under his control there will be hell to pay. If our State Governors had any balls they would tell OBUMA and the U.N. to go piss up a rope.

Writing for FreeBeacon.com, Elizabeth Harrington summarized a comprehensive report by a taxpayer watchdog group that chronicles the exponential increase in the militarization of police agencies in the United States during the past several years.
Harrington writes, “There are now more non-military government employees who carry guns than there are U.S. Marines, according to a new report.
“Open the Books, a taxpayer watchdog group, released a study Wednesday [June 22, 2016] that finds domestic government agencies continue to grow their stockpiles of military-style weapons, as Democrats sat on the House floor calling for more restrictions on what guns American citizens can buy.
“The ‘Militarization of America’ report found civilian agencies spent $1.48 billion on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment between 2006 and 2014. Examples include IRS agents with AR-15s, and EPA bureaucrats wearing camouflage.
“‘Regulatory enforcement within administrative agencies now carries the might of military-style equipment and weapons,’ Open the Books said. ‘For example, the Food and Drug Administration includes 183 armed “special agents,” a 50 percent increase over the ten years from 1998-2008. At Health and Human Services (HHS), “Special Office of Inspector General Agents” are now trained with sophisticated weaponry by the same contractors who train our military special forces troops.’
“Open the Books found there are now over 200,000 non-military federal officers with arrest and firearm authority, surpassing the 182,100 personnel who are actively serving in the U.S. Marine Corps.
“The IRS spent nearly $11 million on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment for its 2,316 special agents. The tax collecting agency has billed taxpayers for pump-action and semi-automatic shotguns, semi-automatic Smith & Wesson M&P15s, and Heckler & Koch H&K 416 rifles, which can be loaded with 30-round magazines.
“The EPA spent $3.1 million on guns, ammo, and equipment, including drones, night vision, ‘camouflage and other deceptive equipment,’ and body armor.”
Harrington continues, “Open the Books appealed to both liberals like Bernie Sanders–who has called for demilitarizing local police departments–and conservatives in its report.
“‘Conservatives argue that it is hypocritical for political leaders to undermine the Second Amendment while simultaneously equipping non-military agencies with hollow-point bullets and military style equipment,’ Open the Books said. ‘One could argue the federal government itself has become a gun show that never adjourns with dozens of agencies continually shopping for new firearms.’”
See the report: There Are Now More Bureaucrats With Guns Than U.S. Marines
Most Americans would be shocked if they knew how many millions of rounds of ammunition their local and State police agencies are amassing. And don’t let anybody tell you all of this ammunition is for “practice.” We are talking about hollow-point pistol rounds and military rifle rounds such as 5.56 and .308 calibers. I would take an educated guess (based on my conversations with both ammunition and arms suppliers and police officers themselves) that your local police agencies have enough ammunition stockpiled to kill the entire population of your community four or five times. But these numbers pale in comparison to the numbers of guns and ammunition being amassed by federal agencies–including agencies that nowhere come close to being categorized as “police” agencies, such as those mentioned in the above report.
To realize that the alphabet agencies of the federal government have more armed agents (assigned to domestic duties) than our premier combat branch of the U.S. military (the U.S. Marines), whose job is to engage America’s enemies in direct combat, is a staggering thought. Tell me again exactly who it is that our federal government deems to be the enemy. And they wonder why more and more Americans are arming themselves?
Couple the militarization of our domestic police (and non-police) agencies with the increased call from many in Washington, D.C., to strip the American people of their right to keep and bear arms–especially their right to keep and bear semi-automatic rifles–and one can understand why so many of the American people are “on edge” and have lost all trust in their federal government.
Understanding and acknowledging the Providence of God notwithstanding, the ONLY thing standing between us and abject tyranny is a massively armed citizenry. America is the last nation in the free world that instilled the right to keep and bear arms not only in its Constitution but also in the very heart and soul of its citizens. Should the American citizenry ever cease to be an armed citizenry (and I mean armed with semi-automatic rifles with high-capacity magazines), the entire free world would collapse into the Dark Ages.
I’m saying it straight out: the only reason that Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Sweden, New Zealand, Australia, etc., have the modicum of freedom that they do is because the American citizenry is an armed citizenry. It is NOT the U.S. armed forces that are keeping this country and the rest of Western Civilization free; it is the armed citizenry of America that is protecting whatever vestiges of liberty Western Civilization has left. Disarm the American people and the entire free world falls into the abyss of tyranny and oppression–maybe for a thousand years.
Listen to Daniel Webster: “Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has happened once in 6000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.”
When Webster talked about holding onto the Constitution, he was including the Second Amendment to the Constitution. And Daniel Webster was not alone in his veneration for the Second Amendment. To a man, America’s Founding Fathers equated the preservation of liberty with the freedom to keep and bear arms.
Listen to our founders:
“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.” (Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787)
“Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.” (James Madison, “Federalist No. 46”, January 29, 1788)
“To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them.” (George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, “The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution.” June 14, 1788)
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.” (Noah Webster, “An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution,” October 10, 1787)
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.” (Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836)
“The great object is that every man be armed. . . . Everyone who is able might have a gun.” (Patrick Henry, Debate in Virginia Ratifying Convention, Elliot 3:380–95, 400–402, June 14, 1788)
“The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The balance of power is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside. And while a single nation refuses to lay them down, it is proper that all should keep them up. Horrid mischief would ensue were one-half the world deprived of the use of them; for while avarice and ambition have a place in the heart of man, the weak will become a prey to the strong. The history of every age and nation establishes these truths, and facts need but little arguments when they prove themselves.” (Thomas Paine, “Thoughts on Defensive War” in Pennsylvania Magazine, July 1775)
“[I]f circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens. This appears to me the only substitute that can be devised for a standing army, and the best possible security against it, if it should exist.” (Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 29, January 9, 1788)
What could be plainer? Our Founding Fathers did not engrave the right to keep and bear arms in our Constitution for the purpose of hunting or target shooting or even simply as a deterrent to domestic criminals (as necessary as those things are). No. The purpose of the Second Amendment was to keep the American people FREE, including if our own government was the enemy trying to enslave us.
For the most part, utopian globalists have successfully disarmed the citizens of Western Civilization. All over the “free world” only governments are armed; citizens have been stripped of their right to keep and bear arms. Even the people of Switzerland are extremely regulated in this regard.
Again, I’ll say it plainly: if citizens are not able to freely keep and bear semi-automatic rifles, they are effectively DISARMED.
The semi-automatic rifle is to us what the Roman sword was to the people in Jesus’ day. It is the preeminent self-defense tool. It is no coincidence that Jesus commanded His disciples to buy a Roman sword, even if they had to sell their clothes to do so. (Luke 22:36) And by the way, it was against the law for Jews to own a Roman sword at that time. That’s right: when Jesus told His disciples to buy a sword, He was telling them to break the law. Tell this to your pastor and see what he says. His response will give you a little hint as to 1) his honest understanding of scriptures and 2) his honest commitment to liberty.
I submit that we would not even be having a discussion of this issue if the pastors of America were doing their jobs from the pulpit. Instead of trying to mimic Joel Osteen and Rick Warren, they should be following the example of America’s patriot pastors and equipping their people with the Biblical Natural Law principles they need to protect and defend their homes, communities, and country. And that requires teaching them the God-ordained duty of self-defense.
When Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein tried to make it illegal to possess semi-automatic rifles back in 2013, the vast majority of America’s pastors either said absolutely NOTHING or they actually told their churches, “If the government outlaws your guns, Romans 13 tells us to turn them in.” NO! Romans 13 teaches NO SUCH THING.
When I realized the dearth of pastoral leadership regarding the Christian duty to keep and bear arms, my attorney son and I wrote a book to teach believers (and anyone else) the scriptural truth regarding their responsibility of self-defense. The book is called “To Keep Or Not To Keep: Why Christians Should Not Give Up Their Guns.” We show from the scriptures–all of them, including Romans 13–that self-defense is much more than a constitutional right: it is a God-ordained DUTY. We show that to surrender our means of self-defense (and that especially includes the semi-automatic rifle) is to DENY the Christian faith.
If readers have not been taught this truth and are in any way uncertain or confused about it, I strongly urge you to get the book. And if you have a pastor or Sunday School teacher that doesn’t understand and courageously teach this truth, buy a copy for them.

Thankfully, Obama and Feinstein failed to outlaw our semi-automatic rifles back in 2013 (no thanks to most of America’s pastors), but you can rest assured if Hillary Clinton is elected the confiscation of our semi-automatic rifles will be NUMBER ONE on the agenda. And even if she isn’t elected, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are standing in the wings to compromise away every liberty we have–including the right to keep and bear arms.
So, while federal agencies in Washington, D.C., are being increasingly militarized, the American people are being told they need to surrender their means of self-defense. It is no hyperbole to say that the fate of the civilized world rests with the American people–not with the U.S. armed forces, but with a free and resolute armed citizenry.

THE AMERICAN ARMY
AMERICA‘S HUNTERS —Pretty Amazing!
A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:
There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin …Allow me to restate that number: 600,000!
Over the last several months, Wisconsin’s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.
(That’s more men under arms than in Iran . More than France and Germany combined. )
These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms,
and NO ONE WAS KILLED.
That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan’s 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.
Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states.
It’s millions more.
America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower!
Hunting… it’s not just a way to fill the freezer.
It’s a matter of national security.
That’s why all of our enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
That is anytime and every time America considers gun control. Our enemies want guns out of our hands.
Overall it’s true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters
don’t possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain…
What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens???
For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.
(IF YOU AGREE, AS I DO, PASS this ON, I FEEL GOOD THAT I HAVE AN ARMY OF MILLIONS WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR LAND, AND I SURE DON’T WANT any of our GOVERNMENTS TAKING CONTROL OF, OR POSSESSION OF OUR FIREARMS.)
It is undeniable that many of our so called citizens want us disarmed, and to them, one and all, I say they are the most stupid cowards in the entire world! Only a fool would trust any government, let alone a corporate government to protect us. Is it not now apparent that the government has a NATO FORCE IN AMERICA? AND THEY HAVE NO LOYALTY TO US. How is it possible that our neighbors believe what the media and education industry is teaching and claiming?
STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES!
OUR COLD DEAD HANDS!
