By BILL SIEGEL 

In 1958, former FBI Special Agent  W Cleon Skousen published The Naked Communist in which he listed the then current communist goals for infiltrating, transforming, and ultimately taking over America. A hero to some, fringe writer to others, Skousen had a perspective both fascinating and shocking to reexamine today in light of recent events including those concerning the Iranian nuclear “negotiation,” gay marriage, Obamacare, power grabs of both Presidents Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin, the advance of Islam, the support for illegal immigration, the ubiquitous charge of “racism,” the endless expansion of “civil rights,” and the dismantling of our Constitution.

Given Barack Obama’s success in executing the “fundamental transformation” of America, Skousen’s list gives profound insight into what might truly motivate the nation’s “smartest president ever.”  While Obama cleverly attempts to sell his many efforts as just small steps here or there in simply “deliverin’ to the folks a little something extra” as we slowly progress toward “a more perfect union,” his whack-a-mole shotgun assault upon all aspects of American life more perfectly models a systematic and well-orchestrated march toward many of these very goals.

 Meanwhile, most members of our mainstream media – executives, on air personalities, writers, editors, and producers alike along with an advertiser base that supports much of the enterprise – are, at best, merely able to express exasperation and confusion as to why Obama does as he does. Pretending to hold meaningful “conversations” about the President and his key associates, our mainstream media collusively avoids any genuinely honest effort to explore Obama’s true motivations in seeking the destruction of our nation as it was formed and intended to develop and thrive.

It is important to avoid focusing on charged words such as “communism,” “socialism,” or “fascism” as they often carry associations and meanings specific to the user or listener. As with Islam and other such systems, modernity pressures changes in appearances if not formulations such that the “communist” of the 50’s would not appear in similar manner today. What is significant about Skousen’s list of goals are the constructs, tactics and outcomes to which they attach, not the categorical headings under which they might fit.

Of the 45 goals in Skousen’s list, some obviously do not fit today’s changed circumstances while others are far more devastating than originally fathomed. Still, the entire list is provided to furnish proper context. Repeated as read into the Congressional record in 1963, the goals below speak for themselves and show just how far Obama, top aide Valerie Jarrett (herself from a family with various communist associations) and fellow comrades have advanced a great deal of this decades-old vision.

(In 1958)-CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS:

  1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
  2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
  3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
  5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
  6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
  7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
  8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
  9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
  10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
  11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
  12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
  13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
  14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
  15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
  16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
  17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
  19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
  20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
  21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
  23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
  24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
  25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
  26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
  27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
  28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
  29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
  30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
  31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
  32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
  33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
  34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
  35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
  36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.
  39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
  40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
  41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
  42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.
  43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
  44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
  45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

The Islamic threat was not on Skousen’s radar in the 1950’s and it has severely metastasized since then. Obama’s foreign policy, which has alienated our traditional allies while demonstrating steadfast loyalty to both the Muslim Brotherhood and the regime leading the Islamic Republic of Iran, seems to have “evolved” coherently from Skousen’s goals. Despite a Sunni-Shia difference, these two share much in common – a utopian supremacist collectivist (at least for the masses) vision, modernized organizational skills and reach, a desire to cause relentless chaos in the Middle East to uproot the tyrannical regimes that fail to appropriately adhere to Islam (most notably the Saudi Royal Family), a desire to obtain control of the oil resources to help further expand Islam and Sharia across the globe, and most notably a deep hatred for Jews, Israel, and America.

In recent times, the “Far Left” has found common cause with our Islamic enemies. The Muslim Brotherhood and the Iranian lobby have been able to form agenda alliances with Leftist and anti-Israeli groups including the politically potent Center for American Progress and the ACLU. As with Sunnis and Shiites, there is much they can accomplish together before they need settle up between them.

Is it any wonder then that Obama might orchestrate “negotiations” (some insist they are a simple and seemingly endless giveaway while others even postulate the deal was made long ago between Valerie Jarrett and her long time Iranian family friend and regime loyalist, Ali Velayati; the interim sequence of discussions being simply a manipulation of expectations for show) to empower Iran while overseeing the decimation of our own military and particularly our nuclear assets? Is it any wonder Obama and compatriot Hillary Clinton would facilitate the overthrow of Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak and Libya’s Moammar Khadafy and, despite years to plan otherwise, leave upon our exit from Iraq enough arms for ISIS and others to continue stirring the requisite regional chaos? Consider the infiltration of Muslim Brotherhood associated persons permitted, if not installed, throughout all levels of our government directing, among other things, training related to Islam and terrorism. Is doing the barest minimum while declaring that ISIL will be degraded and ultimately destroyed anything more than keeping up appearances? Would not installing the Brotherhood’s Mohammad Morsi atop Egypt while eliminating sanctions on the Iranian regime provide staggering resources to fund these two best and largest organized instigators of global terrorism and Islamic pressure? Consider the disgraceful abuse of American goodwill in misusing refugee resettlement operations to insure a rapidly rising Muslim settlement, all in accord with the Muslim Brotherhood’s Civilization Jihad plan for America. Is it worth examining if Obama’s outright refusal to protect our borders is in any way tied to the intent to materially change the makeup of our population? And so on…

Skousen’s list provides a broader background against which to more honorably probe our president’s “legacy” as it stands to date; a background to stand up side by side with those who populated Obama’s own – Frank Marshall Davis, Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, Louis Farrakhan, Edward Said, Rashid Khalidi, and so on.

Days before Obama’s first election, media icons Tom Brokaw and Charlie Rose famously admitted they didn’t “know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy” or “what Barack Obama’s worldview is.” Shamefully, the mainstream media has failed to subsequently meaningfully advance the ball, having disingenuously avoided any truly serious probe into how Obama’s real background, associations, and ideological leanings have guided his endeavors. Because our media elites and opinion leaders refuse to open their eyes, they wind up in an endless loop expressing exasperated bewilderment over how Obama could execute his presidency in the manner he does. They prefer to end asking, “Doesn’t Obama understand that…?” or coaching, “Obama needs to do this or that…” rather than ever suggest that our brilliant president knows exactly what he is doing.

They will always choose to impute good intentions to Obama, attributing any negative outcome to what they have now made acceptable for him – lack of experience, naïveté’, poor leadership skills, chasing a legacy at any cost, even a still youthful fancy if not ego, boredom or shyness. They will not charge, much less consider however, any other intent or ideological calling.

While Skousen’s book was entitled The Naked Communist, our mainstream media has resolutely refused to undress our president and reveal his true motivations in similar naked form.  Keeping their eyes covered, they just may have unconsciously sensed something far more obscene than imaginable.

Dignity and Respect in Blue

July 3rd, 2015 by

http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/36387/Dignity-and-Respect-in-

Blue/?uuid=D61DE0D0-0752-0845-33435892AAF62EB6

 

By Philippe Gastonne

Officers at police academies have always been trained in de-escalation, but there has been less emphasis on such methods over the past 20 years. A recent Police Executive Research Forum survey of 281 police agencies found that the average young officer received 58 hours of firearms training and 49 hours of defensive tactical training, but only eight hours of de-escalation training.

The training regimens at nearly all of the nation’s police academies continue to emphasize military-style exercises, including significant hours spent practicing drill, formation and saluting, said Maria R. Haberfeld, a professor of police science at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.

Many police officials now say that even while these approaches might have helped reduce crime, they have also impeded officers’ ability to win the public’s cooperation and trust.

“If we ask people instead of telling them, and if we give them a reason for why we’re doing something, we get much less resistance,” said Gary T. Klugiewicz, a retired Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office captain and former chairman of the now defunct American Society of Law Enforcement Trainers, who trains police in de-escalation techniques. “If we just started to treat people with dignity and respect, things would go much better.” – New York Times, June 27, 2015

The curriculum in most police academies is heavy on firearms and self-defense techniques. This is necessary but not sufficient. Police need public cooperation for one simple reason: They are usually outnumbered. Top marksmanship will not help one officer control a hostile crowd of 10, 50, or 100 people. His best weapon is the ability to get them on his side.

An arms-race mentality is just one sign police in many places have forgotten this principle. Armored vehicles take the place of common courtesy. This strategy may have reached its limit. The new solution is, as the trainer quoted above says, to “treat people with dignity and respect.”

That this idea faces deep resistance from police is a sign of how much needs to change. Fortunately, their resistance is increasingly futile. Elected officials are growing tired of the legal settlements generated by overenthusiastic “broken windows” policing. Moreover, police chiefs are realizing the soft touch is more effective at keeping the peace.

What would help even more, of course, is an end to the unwinnable War on Drugs. Petty drug possession, or the suspicion thereof, is the catalyst for many unpleasant – and too often, deadly – police-citizen encounters. Imprisonment for those offenses simply creates larger numbers of better-trained criminals who then branch out into non-drug offenses.

The trend toward “open carry” gun laws in many states may be the final straw. How do you police an armed society? You start with dignity and respect. Police would do well to start practicing it.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

About twenty years ago I was going through a period of insomnia and would go to a local restaurant at three in the morning so I would not wake my wife who was still working and arising around 5 am. This was also a coffee stop location for the local and county police and I would try to instigate a conversation with them, but was met with silence or outright hostility time after time until I just gave up. It really was a friendly attempt on my part to socialize with them, but they were obviously trained to refrain from citizen relationships. I considered this an affront to me personally and to the community as a whole. It was many years later before I understood the affects of a change in their training. Now, I would not piss on them because of their hostility, and if they needed help that would be tough shit. I have zero respect for all of them, because it only takes one of them to change this situation by calling out the training program. Why do they think they are going to get respect by being hard asses? An unfriendly cop is a thorn in any society’s backside! If they want respect, they should learn how to give it.

The 75 Trillion Dollar Shadow Banking System Is In Danger Of Collapsing

July 2nd, 2015 by

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/the-75-trillion-

dollar-shadow-banking-system-is-in-danger-of-collapsing

7-2-2015 7-34-31 AM

By Michael Snyder

Keep an eye on the shadow banking system – it is about to be shaken to the core.  According to the Financial Stability Board, the size of the global shadow banking system has reached an astounding 75 trillion dollars.  It has approximately tripled in size since 2002.  In the U.S. alone, the size of the shadow banking system is approximately 24 trillion dollars.  At this point, shadow banking assets in the United States are even greater than those of conventional banks.  These shadow banks are largely unregulated, but governments around the world have been extremely hesitant to crack down on them because these nonbank lenders have helped fuel economic growth.  But in the end, we will all likely pay a very great price for allowing these exceedingly reckless financial institutions to run wild.

If you are not familiar with the “shadow banking system”, the following is a pretty good definition from investing answers.com

The shadow banking system (or shadow financial system) is a network of financial institutions comprised of non-depository banks — e.g., investment banks, structured investment vehicles (SIVs), conduits, hedge funds, non-bank financial institutions and money market funds.

How it works/Example:

Shadow banking institutions generally serve as intermediaries between investors and borrowers, providing credit and capital for investors, institutional investors, and corporations, and profiting from fees and/or from the arbitrage in interest rates.

Because shadow banking institutions don’t receive traditional deposits like a depository bank, they have escaped most regulatory limits and laws imposed on the traditional banking system. Members are able to operate without being subject to regulatory oversight for unregulated activities. An example of an unregulated activity is a credit default swap (CDS).

These institutions are extremely dangerous because they are highly leveraged and they are behaving very recklessly.  They played a major role during the financial crisis of 2008, and even the New York Fed admits that shadow banking has “increased the fragility of the entire financial system”…

The current financial crisis has highlighted the growing importance of the “shadow banking system,” which grew out of the securitization of assets and the integration of banking with capital market developments. This trend has been most pronounced in the United States, but it has had a profound influence on the global financial system. In a market-based financial system, banking and capital market developments are inseparable: Funding conditions are closely tied to fluctuations in the leverage of market-based financial intermediaries. Growth in the balance sheets of these intermediaries provides a sense of the availability of credit, while contractions of their balance sheets have tended to precede the onset of financial crises. Securitization was intended as a way to transfer credit risk to those better able to absorb losses, but instead it increased the fragility of the entire financial system by allowing banks and other intermediaries to “leverage up” by buying one another’s securities.

Over the past decade, shadow banking has become a truly worldwide phenomenon, and thus it is a major threat to the entire global financial system.  In China, shadow banking has been growing by leaps and bounds, but this has the authorities deeply concerned.  In fact, according to Bloomberg one top Chinese regulator has referred to shadow banking as a “Ponzi scheme”…

Their growth had caused the man who is now China’s top securities regulator to label the off-balance-sheet products a “Ponzi scheme,” because banks have to sell more each month to pay off those that are maturing.

And what happens to all Ponzi schemes eventually?

In the end, they always collapse.

And when this 75 trillion dollar Ponzi scheme collapses, the global devastation that it will cause will be absolutely unprecedented.

Bond expert Bill Gross, who is intimately familiar with the shadow banking system, has just come out with a major warning about the lack of liquidity in the shadow banking system…

Mutual funds, hedge funds, and ETFs, are part of the “shadow banking system” where these modern “banks” are not required to maintain reserves or even emergency levels of cash. Since they in effect now are the market, a rush for liquidity on the part of the investing public, whether they be individuals in 401Ks or institutional pension funds and insurance companies, would find the “market” selling to itself with the Federal Reserve severely limited in its ability to provide assistance.

As far as shadow banking is concerned, everything is just fine as long as markets just keep going up and up and up.

But once they start falling, the whole system can start falling apart very rapidly.  Here is more from Bill Gross on what might cause a “run on the shadow banks” in the near future…

Long used to the inevitability of capital gains, investors and markets have not been tested during a stretch of time when prices go down and policymakers’ hands are tied to perform their historical function of buyer of last resort. It’s then that liquidity will be tested.

And what might precipitate such a “run on the shadow banks”?

1) A central bank mistake leading to lower bond prices and a stronger dollar.

2) Greece, and if so, the inevitable aftermath of default/restructuring leading to additional concerns for Eurozone peripherals.

3) China – “a riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma”. It is the “mystery meat” of economic sandwiches – you never know what’s in there. Credit has expanded more rapidly in recent years than any major economy in history, a sure warning sign.

4) Emerging market crisis – dollar denominated debt/overinvestment/commodity orientation – take your pick of potential culprits.

5) Geopolitical risks – too numerous to mention and too sensitive to print.

6) A butterfly’s wing – chaos theory suggests that a small change in “non-linear systems” could result in large changes elsewhere. Call this kooky, but in a levered financial system, small changes can upset the status quo. Keep that butterfly net handy.

Should that moment occur, a cold rather than a hot shower may be an investor’s reward and the view will be something less than “gorgeous”. So what to do?Hold an appropriate amount of cash so that panic selling for you is off the table.

In order to avoid a shadow banking crisis, what we need is for global financial markets to stabilize and to resume their upward trends.

If stocks and bonds start crashing, which is precisely what I have projected will happen during the last half of 2015, the shadow banking system is going to come under an extreme amount of stress.  If the coming global financial crisis is even half as bad as I believe it is going to be, there is no way that the shadow banking system is going to hold up.

So let’s hope that the financial devastation that we have seen so far this week is not a preview of things to come.  The global financial system has been transformed into a delicately balanced pyramid of glass that is not designed to handle turbulent times.  We should have never allowed the shadow banks to run wild like this, but we did, and now in just a short while we are going to get to witness a financial implosion unlike anything the world has ever seen before.

Central Bank of Central Banks Warns That World is Unprepared to Fight Global Crash

July 1st, 2015 by

http://www.activistpost.com/2015/06/central-bank-of-central-banks-warns.html

7-1-2015 7-47-46 AM

By Mac Slavo

According to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the shadowy “central bank of central banks,” the world as it stands is incapable of combating another global financial crash – a crash that there is every reason to think is coming.

That’s because the economy remains in the hands of the Federal Reserve and other central banks.

The financial wizards in THIS VIDEO went so far to say that “we are all slaves to the central banks.” It wasn’t exactly hyperbole.

According to the BIS, central banks have already “used up their ammunition” by driving interests to below zero, freezing investment for the important stuff like production and infrastructure, and instead fueling huge bubbles for wonder kids on Wall Street to play in.

Now, everything is basically teetering on the edge until the music stops. According to the BIS, it will soon be time to pay the piper – as “persistent ultra-low rates” are poised to unleash destruction upon the economy like King Kong set loose on Manhattan:

The BIS report described the threat of a new bust in advanced economies as a “main risk”, with many reaching the top of the economic cycle.

The economies worst hit by the last crisis are now suffering the costs of persistent ultra-low rates, the organisation said, which could “inflict serious damage on the financial system”, sapping banks and weakening their balance sheets and their ability to lend.
And worse, the advanced countries will be unable to fight back against the serious consequences, according to their 2015 annual report:

  • The world will be unable to fight the next global financial crash as central banks have used up their ammunition trying to tackle the last crises.• Central banks have backed themselves into a corner after repeatedly cutting interest rates to shore up their economies.

    • Central banks may have contributed [to the coming crisis] by fuelling costly financial booms and busts and delaying adjustment.”

In past years, the BIS has painted a clear picture of the bleak financial landscape brought on by central bank policy since the 2008 crisis.

It warned in 2013 that:

Fresh action from central banks to kick-start growth may do more harm than goodby distorting financial markets and jeopardising stability.

“Unfortunately, central banks cannot do more without compounding the risks they have already created.”(source)
In 2014, it found that central banks have failed to achieve a recovery, and are incapable of doing so:

Robust, self-sustaining growth still eludes the global economy… Central banks cannot solve the structural problems that are preventing a return to strong and sustainable growth.

“Most of all, central banks cannot enact the structural economic and financial reforms needed to return economies to the real growth paths authorities and their publics both want and expect.”

What central bank accommodation has done during the recovery is to borrow time … But the time needs to be used wisely, as the balance between benefits and costs is deteriorating.” (source)

Given the unique insider position of the Bank for International Settlements in the global financial power structure, these are foreboding words to be met with mature concern. This is a tacit admission that the powers that be know the next big crisis is around the corner, and they are ready to watch us drown in it – this time, without reaching down to offer us up.

In Defense of the Confederate Flag

June 30th, 2015 by

http://www.thedailysheeple.com/in-defense-of-the-confederate-flag_062015

6-30-2015 11-08-54 AM

By Joshua Krause

I am by no means a Southerner, and I don’t feel any particular affinity for the Confederate flag. However, recent events have led me to feel compelled to offer a rather simple defense for this flag, though it doesn’t hold any special meaning for me.

Ever since the Charleston shooting, the PC police have crawled out of the woodwork, and have derided the Southern battle standard as a purely racist symbol, and have demanded that it be removed from every public building in the South. There’s even a Facebook petition now that is calling for a national “burn the Confederate flag day.”

But what exactly are these people railing against? What makes this symbol so repulsive that it needs to be burned? Is it because it was flown by armies that defended a slave holding regime? Or because it was carried by supposed traitors? Or perhaps because it has been proudly displayed by white supremest organizations ever since?

Here’s the problem I have with people who froth at the mouth every time they see someone with this flag. If you’re going to burn the Confederate flag because you think it stands for racism and slavery, I suggest you get started on the American flag shortly thereafter.

If I recall correctly, and maybe my history is a little rusty so feel free to call me out on this, but didn’t the Union government accept slavery right up until the Civil War? Heck, there were plenty of Northern states that allowed slavery, which they abandoned in the early 19th century, largely for economic reasons rather than ethical concerns (and also because the British Army had liberated most of them during the Revolutionary War).

Even after the Civil War occurred, there were a few slave holding states that stayed in the Union such as Delaware, Missouri, Kentucky, and Maryland. There were even slave-owning officers in the Union army. There’s a reason why the Emancipation Proclamation only freed slaves in states that seceded. Lincoln didn’t want to anger many of his own officers, or cause any more states to leave.

And while we’re on the subject of Lincoln, let it be known that he could have cared less about the institution of Slavery. His main goal was to preserve the Union. Freeing the slaves was incidental in that process. He said so himself

“My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or destroy slavery.”

“If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.”

“I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”

And long after Lincoln was dead, the Federal government proved itself to be one of the most racist, genocidal, and imperialistic regimes in the history of the world, as they marched westward, brutally subjugating every native tribe they came across, before entering the 20th century as the world’s preeminent superpower. In this regard, the American flag is stained with more innocent blood than the Confederate flag ever was.

As for the notion that this flag is a treasonous banner, so is the American flag, a symbol that was born during the Revolutionary War.

And what of the fact that it was a symbol admired by white supremacists for decades? Well, there’s another flag that racists have often called their own.

6-30-2015 11-11-24 AM

Make no mistake though, I’m not suggesting you go out and burn the American flag. If you think that, then you’ve missed the point. All I’m saying, is that’s hypocritical to hate the Confederate flag if you love the American flag.

When it comes to symbols, and these flags are symbolic figures, is that they mean different things to different people. Everyone who waves the American flag sees something unique in it. They all see the America that they want to live in, and they disregard the awful actions that have been carried out in its name.

The Confederate flag is no different. While it has been and still is a symbol that is admired by racists, I would wager that there are more non-racist Southerners who carry it. For them, it’s simply an undeniable part of their heritage; a symbol that marks a bloody milestone in their history, which has set them apart from the rest of America.

So please, if you think that the Confederate flag is solely the domain of people like Dylann Roof, I implore you to think again. It’s just a symbol, and like all symbols, it means many different things, to many different people, and those meanings will continue to change in ways we can’t imagine, long after we’re all in the ground. Quit getting hung up on what this symbol originally stood for, and recognize what it means to people today.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Only an accident of birth makes me a Hoosier, and only a tyrannical government makes me an American. The reason my patriotism is wavering is simple! The majority of this shit hole are too damn chicken shit to demand their freedom, and their ideology is as self centered and putrid as it get’s. Who in their right mind would support sticking a man’s penis in another mans anus and ostracize all who object? And, what the hell does banning a flag accomplish? American’s by number no long have a clue what morality is, or is good for! To restore my patriotism, I need some damn company. Demand all who know you to start reading the articles I post and I will reconsider.

The 3 Most Unbelievable Conspiracy Theories Involving the U. S. Govt Ultimately Proven as Fact

June 29th, 2015 by

http://www.thedailysheeple.com/the-3-most-unbelievable-conspiracy-theories-

involving-the-u-s-govt-ultimately-proven-as-fact_062015

6-29-2015 11-59-18 AM

Jay Syrmopoulos 

The Free Thought Project 

If someone told you that the U.S. government plotted terror attacks against targets on U.S. soil, that CIA had infiltrated the entirety of Western media and was using the media as a propaganda tool or that after World War II the U.S. secretly brought over a thousand Nazi scientists to the U.S to work on top secret projects for the federal government, people would likely say they were a wild conspiracy theorist.

On the surface these, “conspiracy theories” sound like insane movie plots produced by Hollywood, but sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction – and much more ominous.

Welcome to 2015, where tinfoil has become reality.

Let us guide you through 3 of the most tyrannical escapades ever endeavored upon by the United States government, proven through investigation and declassified documents.

  1. Operation Northwoods

After the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961, in the midst of the Cold War, a top secret plan was formulated, called Operation Northwoods. The operation was signed off on by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and made it all the way to President Kennedy’s desk, where he refused to sign off on the diabolical plot. Some of the most disturbing revelations of the op called for U.S. government agents to carry out terrorist attacks within the United States.

“We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington. The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans en route to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.”

To justify using the U.S. military in Cuba, the military was willing to engage in actual terrorist attacks on American soil. Let that sink in for a minute. This is not a crazy conspiracy theory, this actually happened and the only reason it wasn’t operationalized is because Kennedy said no.

  1. Operation Mockingbird

This CIA operation began as the Cold War ramped up in the 1950’s. In an attempt to gather intelligence and influence public opinion, the CIA recruited journalists from across the United States. The program operated for nearly three decades and was deeply embedded in the fabric of American journalism. These compromised journalists provided the CIA direct access to some of the most prestigious media outlets in the country. The scope of the infiltration of the media was vast, encompassing newspapers, periodicals, press services, news agencies, radio and television stations, book publishers and foreign media outlets. A congressional investigation by the Church Committee exposed the vast propaganda program, stating:

“The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda.”

Respected journalist Carl Bernstein, writing about the depth of the CIA’s co-opting of media, wrote in Rolling Stone in 1977:

“Some of these journalists’ relationships with the Agency were tacit; some were explicit. There was cooperation, accommodation and overlap. Journalists provided a full range of clandestine services — from simple intelligence-gathering to serving as go betweens with spies in Communist countries. Reporters shared their notebooks with the CIA. Editors shared their staffs. Some of the journalists were Pulitzer Prize winners, distinguished reporters who considered themselves ambassadors without portfolio for their country. Most were less exalted – foreign correspondents who found that their association with the Agency helped their work; stringers and freelancers who were as interested in the derring-do of the spy business as in filing articles; and, the smallest category, full-time CIA employees masquerading as journalists abroad. In many instances, CIA documents show, journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.”

  1. Operation Paperclip

Operation Paperclip was the codename for an operation in which US intelligence and military services secretly brought Nazi scientists to the U.S., permanently repatriating them as World War II came to a close. Originally the project was called Operation Overcast, and is also referred to as Project Paperclip.

The U.S. showed particular interest in scientists specializing in aerodynamics and rocketry, chemical weapons, chemical reaction technology and medicine. These scientists and their families were secretly brought to the United States, without State Department review and approval. This is because their service for the Nazi party and SS memberships, as well as the classification of many as war criminals or security threats, disqualified them from officially obtaining visas.

President Truman had ordered the exclusion of anyone who was “a member of the Nazi Party, and more than a nominal participant in its activities, or an active supporter of Nazi militarism.” This would have excluded most of the leading Nazi scientists, so to circumvent Truman’s order, the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA), created false political biographies for the scientists. JIOA then went on to expunge all records of the scientists’ affiliation with the Nazi party and grant each of them U.S. government security clearances, thus allowing them to work on highly classified projects for the U.S. military.

The majority of the 1,500 Nazi scientists were deployed to various military testing sites to work on guided missile and ballistic missile technology, along with numerous other scientific endeavors. These actions, in turn, led to the foundation of NASA and the U.S. ICBM program.

All three of these “theories” have been brushed off by many as “crazy” and unrealistic even though there is concrete evidence to prove them all to be true. These types of insanely horrific conspiracies will continue to occur until enough people pull their heads out of the sand; and let it be known that we see what the man behind the curtain is doing.

With knowledge of these heinous acts, one must question exactly what type of similar operations are currently being run by the U.S. government, without the knowledge of the American public.

NATIONAL IMPEACHMENT PUSH BEGING

June 27th, 2015 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/JBWilliams/williams304.htm

By J.B. Williams
June 27, 2015
NewsWithViews.com

In 2008, the people did indeed “make history” when they elected what would soon become the most impeachable administration in U.S. history, the Obama regime…

Seven years later, impeachment is the only peaceful solution left for the salvation of American sovereignty, security, freedom and liberty. Even after the people elected Republicans to control the House in 2010 and the Senate in 2014, the nation remains on a collision course with disaster…

In just the past few days, the Obama regime launched an all-out calculated assault on the Confederate Flag and the true history behind it, which marks the last time in American history when a group of states band together to enforce Constitutional States Rights and stop the Federal government from running roughshod over the states and the people…

Then the U.S. Supreme Court issued a 6-3 ruling upholding ObamaCare, signaling once again that the Constitution and Bill of Rights are extinct, as is the rule of law, replaced by an oligarchy of nine unelected and unaccountable political appointees interested only in social engineering.

Republican Chief Justice Roberts split with conservative Judges Scalia, Thomas and Alito, to uphold an illegal unconstitutional law that due to its unconstitutional nature and unconstitutional passage, is actually no law at all… Roberts and Kennedy were the two judges who stuck it to the American people in this decision and there will be no price to pay….

They are now expected to rule in favor of eliminating the true definition of “marriage” on behalf of homosexuals and transgendered folks and who knows what perversions of law after that…

Meanwhile, both the Republican controlled House and Senate passed the Obama Dream Bill abdicating all congressional international trade powers over to the Dictator-in-Chief and our immigration and naturalization law enforcement over to the new Global Government at the UN.

All in all, it’s been one hell of a week for the Global Marxists running the United States into the ground at breakneck speed. Not such a good week for Team America, however….

So, after more proof that Congress will never act to stop the insanity on their own, that Obama is totally committed to the final destruction of the Constitutional Republic and the Supreme Court is poised to sit back and rubber stamp any unconstitutional act Obama & Co. might dream up next, the people are left with only one remaining peaceful option….

Impeach… Do it Right… Do it NOW and don’t stop at just Barack Obama….

On July 29, 2014, The North American Law Center (NALC) issued an open public call for the immediate impeachment of the entire criminal Obama regime…. And they carefully crafted a set of Articles just for the occasion… (See NALC Articles of Impeachment here) – NALC is formed, operated and funded by private citizens for the benefit of all Americans who still believe in the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Constitutional Republican form of self-governance…

The people were not yet ready for serious solutions, believing that one more election to place Republicans in control of both congressional chambers would solve the problem…. Today, the people now know that nothing is going to solve the problem short of proper impeachment….

NALC Constitutional Lead Counsel Stephen Pidgeon recorded a narration of the NALC Articles available HERE.

But without “the people” across America behind those Articles, they were doomed to die a silent death just like any other grassroots initiative with no grassroots support….

Now, patriot groups across America understand that impeachment is their last chance at a peaceful solution to their runaway government… The assault on America is so massive and so vast on so many fronts that the only way to deal with any of it is to deal with all of it… to take the head off of this beast and quickly…

A number of patriot groups across Tennessee and other states contacted NALC in support of the NALC Articles and that group has now formed a Constitutional Accountability Coalition for the sole purpose of gathering public patriot support for the immediate impeachment of the Obama regime…

The Tennessee Coalition is designed to organize and mobilize Tennessee voters to mass pressure their Tennessee Representatives and Senators in D.C. to take immediate action to hold the entire Obama regime fully accountable for their criminal acts of treason… The Tennessee group is also designed to be a template for groups across America to duplicate state-by-state, organize and mobilize their citizens for the same single purpose.

The Tennessee Constitutional Accountability Coalition is hosting a National Impeachment Conference Call this coming Monday evening, June 29, 2015 at 8:30 PM ET(7:30 CT)

(Dial in number – 209-647-1600 PIN # to join the conference – 915138#)

I will be on this conference along with numerous other leaders from numerous groups involved in a nationwide push for the immediate impeachment of the Obama regime. I urge every American seeking a peaceful means to end the ongoing assault on our country to attend this conference… Most of the conference will be a Q and A session….

My position is very clear on this, along with the folks at NALC and the Tennessee Constitutional Accountability Coalition…. Nothing good is going to happen in America unless WE the People make it happen…

If you think there are no members of congress who believe the same things we do, think again. In a letter dated June 22, 2015 from House Representative Don Young of Alaska, he states –

“As you are well aware, the President of The United States has overreached the boundaries of his office many times on many different matters over the past few years. His rash and unreasonable actions, many of which have eroded powers from the legislative branch, show a profound disregard for the authority of the Constitution.”

House Rep. Young goes on –

“There have been many examples of President Obama abusing the power of his office. The Obama Administration has been actively engaged in an effort to undermine First Amendment freedom of speech protections. The Administration has pushed to criminalize investigative journalism by going through the emails and phone records of reporters who have been critical of Administration policy and accusing journalists of being co-conspirators in felonies for working with their sources.” – (Young is not alone in congress… more will be released later and discussed Monday night)

If this effort to force impeachment forward in the Republican controlled congress fails, it will not only be because congressional Republicans have failed their voters, again…. It will be because “we the people” failed in our duty to be forever vigilant in defense of freedom and liberty… It will be because WE failed our Founders, our forefathers who fought and died for freedom and liberty, and our children, who will inherit an America nothing like the one we inherited….

I urge every red blooded American patriot to take a stand for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Rule of Constitutional Law and the Republic…. By attending the Monday night conference on impeachment and getting involved in your state immediately following…

56 men were the difference between British tyranny and American Independence and freedom….

Our nation is in desperate need of men and women like this again…

Congress will not do it unless they have to do it… we all know this… The question is, will you be part of the reason they impeach, or part of the reason they don’t?

Meet me at the conference call Monday the 29th… Or stop whining and complaining that no one is doing anything… It will be YOU who isn’t doing what it takes to remain free…

National Impeachment Conference Call this coming Monday evening, June 29, 2015 at 8:30 PM ET (7:30 CT) – (Dial in number – 209-647-1600 PIN # to join the conference – 915138#)

( This makes me totally sick….  disgusted!!!  /dt )

Jun252015 – by Paola Casale

any think our government is for sale. However, by taking a look at the facts below provided by Open Secrets, it is easy to understand where they are coming from.

Looking back at Friday the 12th, the House voted on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the controversial bill that gives power to the executive branch to negotiate treaties. TPA limits Congress’ ability to better a trade deal by subjecting members of Congress to 90 days of reviewing the trade agreement, prohibiting any amendments on the implementing legislation, and giving them an up or down vote.

TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition.

  • John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million for a “yea” vote and was the highest paid legislator.
  • Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million for his “yea” vote.
  • Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million for a “yea” vote and came in at the third highest paid legislator.
  • Pat Tiberi (R-OH) follows Paul Ryan, coming in the fourth spot having received $1.6 million for his “yea” vote.

The fifth highest paid legislator is somewhat of a “hero” in comparison to others. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) received $1.6 million for a yes vote and only $282,710 for a no vote. Despite his high contribution from those in favor of TPA, he still voted a solid nay.

We also have other hero stories.

  • Joe Crowley (D-NY) received 1.3 million for a “yea” vote and only $72,550 for a “nay” vote and he still voted against TPA.
  • Patrick Murphy (D-FL) received 1.1 million for a “yea” vote and only $213,360 for a “nay” vote and still voted against it.
  • Richard Neal D(MA) received $1.1 million for a “yea” vote and a mere $47,625 for a “nay” vote and still voted against it.

Democrats are not the only heroes in this voting session. GOP members spoke very loud and clear.

  • Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) received $541,746 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay!”
  • Andy Harris (R-MD) received $254,803 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay”.
  • Thomas Massie (R-KY) received $250,328 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay.”
  • Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) received $180,832 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay vote” and she still voted “nay.”

Where did this kind of money come from? Those in favor of TPA were security brokers and investment companies who donated a whopping $11.3 million dollars for a “yea” vote. Big banking companies donated $10.1 million dollars. In other words, Wall Street hashed out millions and millions of dollars to push for the passage of TPA.

Is there any doubt that America is not what we were told has children, and hundreds of thousands of brave but deluded young men died for? Is there any doubt that Americans are totally accepting of anything the government demands? Is there any possibility that the reader of this site will now join up with those who are trying to educate the masses? OR, are you going to continue believing you live in the best country on earth?

TPP Passes: Obama Now A Dictator!

http://www.prisonplanet.com/tpp-passes-obama-now-a-dictator.html

Foundation of global government cemented with passage of secretive bill

Alex Jones
Prison Planet.com
June 24, 2015

One of the most devastating blows to US sovereignty since the country’s founding was dealt today as the Senate handed President Obama his Trans-Pacific Partnership victory.

Despite massive opposition from the American people, Tea Party Republicans and a majority of Democrats, Obama was granted fast-track authority by a 60-38 vote.

Sections of the TPP published by Wikileaks have revealed the treaty’s vast influence over multiple areas including individual rightsinternet freedom and even the rule of law itself. Unelected corporate boards and the President can now wield unprecedented control over almost every aspect of human activity.

“If you read, write, publish, think, listen, dance, sing or invent; if you farm or consume food; if you’re ill now or might one day be ill, the TPP has you in its crosshairs,” Wikileaks’ Julian Assange wrote.

Secret TPP chapters regarding immigration also grant President Obama an even greater ability to erode the country’s Southern border.

“Obama will be able to finalize all three of the Obamatrade deals, without any Congressional input…” notes Breitbart.

The TPP, which covers 12 countries and more than 40% of the world’s economy, will place North America under the same global government structure as the European Union, where laws are increasingly crafted outside of public influence.

WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA

The scumbags in congress/senate have just sold us out completely, and there is no possibility of recourse as there is no possibility of organizing a rebellion without secret communication. All of the brave men and women who have been warning you to take action will now be hunted down and disposed of. There is no active constitution or common law left, and the military has been sanitized of patriots. Even with my extraordinary vocabulary of foul verbal expressions I find myself unable to express how putrid this travesty of justice is. And the most horrible part of all this is the majority of Americans have not the courage to stand up and refuse to obey. America has just committed suicide with their complacency. They are just plain stupid, and congress/senate is full of the most degenerate sons of bitches on earth. I hope those bastards die of the most agonizing/painful disease known to humanity.

 

Police Killed More Americans In 2014 Than All U. S. Mass Shootings Combined

By Amanda Warren

With another recent mass shooting having taken place last week in Charleston, South Carolina – such a crisis is the perfect opportunity for the President to yet again stop just short of using the “C-word” – confiscation. Or “C” for the gun Control he promoted.

Before any victims were even in the ground, he exploited the tragedy for politicized gun control agendas. 

Obama is tired of making speeches about mass killings. He’s tired of them. He doesn’t want killings to be the “new normal.” I agree with the President. Random, mass murder whether by guns, caused by mental illness, or by hatred needs to stop.

Therefore, I took the liberty of finding its biggest source…

If it’s really true that you’re 9 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than a terrorist – then we need to have a talk. But where is our speech to address the thousands of Americans executed by police in the last 15 years? Is it not as speech worthy when the number of dead Americans is only 3 per day and is spattered across the country? Victims one by one?

Although we aren’t allowed to know the actual number of American citizens killed by police each year, a database has been tracking news stories since 2013. 

In 2014, at least 1,104 Americans were executed on site by law enforcement. No trial – just violent death. A quick scan of the headlines shows an inordinate amount of shooting deaths. So, the media reports on them, but without the outrage reserved for lone shooters who walk into public places spraying bullets at random people.

Not only do some sources average the deaths out to 3 per day, but also one American every 7.6 hours. That means if you saw this headline before work, and then read the story after you got home from work – two Americans have likely died at the hands of law enforcement in the meantime.

The media supports the agenda to remove gun ownership from law abiding citizens because of conveniently timed and fishy looking mass shootings by deranged males – but not from deranged, gun-wielding males with badges. The ones who may gravitate to such positions, who don’t get screened. Who can simply move to another state or nearby department and restart their law enforcement career after they have killed.

Back to the numbers comparison – how does the amount of Americans murdered by police in 2014 (and on average every day) compare to the amount of Americans killed in all U.S. mass shootings? (A mass shooting is typically one person, who has randomly killed at least 4 people in a public place within 24 hours. Not to be confused with sprees, serial murders or mass genocide)

It’s double.

In 2014 police killed about twice the amount of Americans as those killed in all U.S. mass shootings combined, starting in 1982.

The amount of people killed in all U.S. mass shootings – 567.

That’s 567 people in 157 shootings starting in the 1980s. In 2014 alone – in one year flat – police nearly killed double that amount.

Again, where are the speeches? Where are the calls for mental health screenings and strict regulations for the authorities? Officers who kill don’t have their three-part name plastered on front pages – no calls for their guns removed. And when they happen to use one of their “less-than-lethal” weapons – they kill. When they have only their fists, boots or their arms – they kill.

This is precisely why you never, ever give up your Second Amendment – or your guns. The tragedy argument must always be flipped back to the authorities who want you to be without any defense, against deranged authorities with all the force. Turn. The. Tables.

The trouble with malleable media statistics and their tunnel vision is – it’s all pretty, framed lies. Recall when school shootings first took place – it was reported on daily for what seemed like years until the word “school” was now associated with “shooting” or gun violence. Of course it has has taken place and is horribly tragic. Nothing discounts that. But it’s a focus redirect for a reaction and controlled outcome. Just think about what now continues to mow down Americans in violence at a most startling rate. Think about how different it would be if the media framed police involved shootings in the same light…they should! It should always be a national tragedy.

Not – the “new normal.”

An inordinate amount of shootings took place between 2010-2013. Obama doesn’t even wait for burials anymore before he calls for the removal of guns before hitting the greens again. And if people don’t pay attention and sift through the truth they will find themselves stuttering and speechless when authoritarians – law enforcement perhaps – yank guns from their warm, living hands.

Take for instance, the new federal crime unit Chicago called for in the “wake of the 2014 Chicago Easter weekend shootings.” Guns were the boogeymen man in Obama’s old stomping grounds despite the fact that Chicago boasted the strictest gun control laws in the country – and also surpassed New York City in murder crimes in 2011.

The media rode the choppy waves of pointing to crime in Chicago as a reason to rid its citizens of guns, but also wanting to showcase a drop in crime to show that strict gun control works. The problem is – there was no drop in murder. Just a drastic change in how homicides were reported. It’s amazing how much a homicide looks like “death from natural causes” when law enforcement deliberately record it that way. Additionally, operations for this federal unit began April 1 – before Easter. How then could the unit be formed in “the wake of a shooting” when it happened before the shooting took place? I think you know the answer to that…

Additionally, the mainstream media is still purse-lipped on the “mass shooting that never was.” The one that was prevented by one responsible person with a gun. In fact, the “non-event” was lumped in with other shooting stories to showcase “more gun violence.” (That’s also known as deception.) An off-duty female officer saves the world from another Aurora-type shooting? Normally, that holds all the media-trappings of a heroic cause for celebration. Except when that last slot on the machine doesn’t match the greater agenda of gun control – then it doesn’t make it past the cutting room floor.

Again, I’m going to have to side with Obama on this one. Too many killings are taking place – it cannot be the “new normal” – but where, O where, shall we look?

Brandon Turbeville writes:

As for [Obama’s] claims that mass shootings do not happen in other countries, of course, he can easily be proven wrong. They do. And when they do, they are generally much more dramatic due to the disarmed nature of the public.

The Second Amendment is non-negotiable. It has to be, unless the world wants to witness an En Mass shooting here in America like never before. Which is why it was written of course – the only reason why it was written.

Signs Of Financial Turmoil In Europe, China And The United States

June 22nd, 2015 by

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/signs-of-financial-turmoil-in-europe-china-and-the-united-states

6-22-2015 10-38-27 AM

By Michael Snyder, on June 19th, 2015

As we move toward the second half of 2015, signs of financial turmoil are appearing all over the globe.  In Greece, a full blown bank run is happening right now.  Approximately 2 billion euros were pulled out of Greek banks in just the past three days, Barclays says that capital controls are “imminent” unless a debt deal is struck, and there are reports that preparations are being made for a “bank holiday” in Greece.  Meanwhile, Chinese stocks are absolutely crashing.  The Shanghai Composite Index was down more than 13 percent this week alone.  That was the largest one week decline since the collapse of Lehman Brothers.  In the U.S., stocks aren’t crashing yet, but we just witnessed one of the largest one week outflows of capital from the bond markets that we have ever witnessed.  Slowly but surely, we are starting to see the smart money head for the exits.  As one Swedish fund manager put it recently, everyone wants “to avoid being caught on the wrong side of markets once the herd realizes stocks are over-valued“.

I don’t think that most people understand how serious things have gotten already.  In Greece, so much money has been pulled out of the banks that the European Central Bank admits that Greek banks may not be able to open on Monday

The European Central Bank told a meeting of euro zone finance ministers on Thursday that it was not sure if Greek banks, which have been suffering large daily deposit outflows, would be able to open on Monday, officials with knowledge of the talks said.

Greek savers have withdrawn about 2 billion euros from banks over the past three days, with outflows accelerating rapidly since talks between the government and its creditors collapsed at the weekend, banking sources told Reuters.

All over social media, people are sharing photos of long lines at Greek ATMs as ordinary citizens rush to get their cash out of the troubled banks.  Here is one example

And if there is no debt deal by the end of this month, the Greek debt crisis is going to totally spin out of control and financial chaos will begin to erupt all over Europe.  But instead of trying to be reasonable, EU president Donald Tusk “has delivered an ultimatum to Greece”, and it almost appears as if EU officials are more concerned about winning a power struggle than they are about averting financial catastrophe…

EU president Donald Tusk has delivered an ultimatum to Greece, claiming the country must ‘accept an offer or default’ at an emergency summit set for Monday – in a last-ditch effort to stop the debt-stricken nation crashing out of the euro.

‘We are close to the point where the Greek government will have to choose between accepting what I believe is a good offer of continued support or to head towards default,’ Mr Tusk said today.

His comments come as Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras warned that his country’s exit from the eurozone would trigger the collapse of the single currency.

‘The famous Grexit cannot be an option either for the Greeks or the European Union,’ he said in an Austrian newspaper interview.

‘This would be an irreversible step, it would be the beginning of the end of the eurozone.’

While all of this has been going on, the obscene stock market bubble in China has started to implode.  Just check out the following numbers from Zero Hedge

As the carnage began last night in China we noted the extreme levels of volatility the major indices had experienced in recent weeks. By the close, things were ugly with the broad Shanghai Composite down a stunning 13.3% on the week – the most since Lehman in 2008 (with Shenzhen slightly better at down 12.8% and CHINEXT down a record-breaking 14.99%).

Under normal circumstances, numbers like these would be reason for a full-blown financial panic over in Asia.  But these are not normal times.  Even with these losses, stock prices in China are still massively overinflated.  For example, USA Today is reporting that the median stock over in China is “trading at 95 times earnings”…

Margin debt in China has soared to a record $363 billion, according to Bloomberg, and the median stock in mainland China is now trading at 95 times earnings, which even tops the price-to-earnings multiple of 68 back at the 2007 peak.

That is absolutely ridiculous.  When a stock is trading at 25 or 30 times earnings it is overpriced.  So these numbers that are coming out of China are beyond crazy, and what this means is that Chinese stocks have much, much farther to fall before they get back to any semblance of reality.

Meanwhile, in the U.S. money is flowing out of bonds at a staggering pace.  The following quote originally comes from Bank of America

“High grade credit funds suffered their biggest outflow this year, and double the previous week (and also the biggest since June 2013). High yield outflows also jumped to $1.1bn, the biggest since the start of the year. However, government bond funds suffered the most amid the recent spike in volatility, with outflows surging to the highest weekly number on record ($2.7bn). This brings the total outflow from fixed income funds to almost $6bn over the last week, the highest since the Taper Tantrum and the third highest outflow ever.”

What this means is that big trouble is brewing in the bond markets.  This is something that I warned about in my previous article entitled “Experts Are Warning That The 76 Trillion Dollar Global Bond Bubble Is About To Explode“.

For the moment, U.S. stocks are doing fine.  But just about everyone can see that we in a massive financial bubble that could burst at any time.  Presidential candidate Donald Trump says that what we are witnessing is a “big fat economic and financial bubble like you’ve never seen before”

Yesterday during an interview on MSNBC, presidential candidate Donald Trump said he has some big names in mind for the Treasury secretary if he wins the White House. “I’d like guys like Jack Welch. I like guys like Henry Kravis. I’d love to bring my friend Carl Icahn.” He also opined on the economy and the stock market, admitting that the Fed has benefited people like him but that the economy and is in a “big fat economic and financial bubble like you’ve never seen before.

Ron Paul also believes that this financial bubble is going to end very badly.  Just check out what he told CNBC earlier this week

Despite record highs in the market, former Rep. Ron Paul says the Fed’s easy money policies have left stocks and bonds are on the verge of a massive collapse.

“I am utterly amazed at how the Federal Reserve can play havoc with the market,” Paul said on CNBC’s “Futures Now” referring to Thursday’s surge in stocks. The S&P 500 closed less than 1 percent off its all-time high. “I look at it as being very unstable.”

In Paul’s eyes, “the fallacy of economic planning” has created such a “horrendous bubble” in the bond market that it’s only a matter of time before the bottom falls out. And when it does, it will lead to “stock market chaos.”

Yes, this financial bubble has persisted far longer than many believed possible, but all irrational bubbles eventually burst.

And you know what they say – the bigger they come the harder they fall.

When this gigantic financial bubble finally implodes, it is going to be absolutely horrifying, and the entire planet is going to be shocked by the carnage.

Humanity is Developing Survival Resistance to Government Lies

June 21st, 2015 by

By Bernie Suarez

Throughout nature it is well known that species will experience changes in its DNA and adaptations in its physical expression and behavior solely for the purposes of surviving in its environment. There are numerous examples in nature of species genetically and physically adapting to its environment for survival reasons. So it’s not a far-fetched suggestion that humanity itself may now be experiencing a physiological mental and cerebral transformation which is changing its behavioral pattern and environmental response to the phenomenon of government.

That’s right, as humans we have an obligation to think critically and objectively when considering the plight of humanity as it struggles in these modern days against the new world order and the human control system. It is up to us to consider the objective expression of this battle for freedom against the oppressive and defective component of humanity known as government.

Whether you understand it or not, those that wish to control you are a parasite on the species. Their infective process is carried out by thought signals within other concurring members of the species. These thought signals of control, rules, laws, policing, and legal system of enslavement perpetuate itself within the species, and is the very system that we know as the controlling governmental system. It seeks to simply control and enslave others. There is really no other purpose for its existence. It generates the mental signals needed to perpetuate the control system of enslavement to take away your individual freedom and your wealth and money. It does all of this by the system of rules we logically understand today as government.

This same governmental system is a sophisticated apparatus. It didn’t just come about by any means. This concept of government, it turns out, is the very burden of life that ensures that life often is a struggle, is stress filled or not enjoyable. This control system is a challenge humanity has been trying to figure out for centuries. Anyone can read ancient history and see the exact same struggle humanity was in back then. It is not difficult to see the parallels throughout history showing how the history of freedom’s struggle is arguably the very history of humanity.

Unfortunately today, all of history is often taught to children from the point of view of the controllers. The concept of freedom is normally hidden from human consciousness from the start with the hope and intention that the human being will never comprehend what it means to be truly free. The control system’s logic instilled from youth is that life is what you are told it is by the control system and you are to obey. We are taught that freedom from controlling governments is not realistic, not possible and not even part of human history. 

Realization and awareness

However, with the advent of the information age and the subsequent advancement in human awareness and consciousness, many within the species (those who are awakened) are realizing that the sky is the limit. Humanity is realizing that truth itself is realized, not expressed to you by a voice on TV or a billboard. Awakened humanity is realizing that we are what we believe we can be. The rules of old are quickly dissolving before our eyes even as the control system marches on with control tactics to keep the masses enslaved.

Reality and fiction are on a collision course. The controllers are intending to force their fiction on humanity even if it means going violent. Today, this forceful violence designed to intimidate and push their agenda is known by many names today including “false flags”. These false flags are now the norm in the eyes of those who are awakened, and spontaneous coincidences in the eyes of those still asleep in the matrix of lies.

This epic moment in human consciousness is leading to something big. What we are now seeing is a rash of staged government violent operations, staged false flag violence and everyday lies from the control system’s mainstream media. As awakened humanity fights off a now weak storm of verbal attacks (“conspiracy theorists”) designed to discredit those awakened, it is primed to usher in a new era which is already underway.

The new era of human consciousness has many features to it. It’s already in progress and it’s all around us even though most people don’t realize it. Humanity is mentally advancing and adapting very comfortably to government lies and propaganda. Yes, that’s right! I believe humanity is adapting so well to government lies and propaganda that the control system is desperate to do whatever it has to do to control, fool and convince those that are still asleep that the dream they are in is still real. They are throwing the kitchen sink at this prospect. The dream of controlling humanity is, after all, a dream to the controllers. The same way you and I have dreams of success and happiness is the same way the controller have dreams of controlling. Like any member of the species, we (they) are wired to not give up on our (their) dreams.

This functional commonality within humanity is a very important reality we must all keep in mind. The same tenacity that we have for fighting for freedom and truth is the tenacity the controllers have for fighting for enslavement and lies. 

Rendering the control system powerless

I believe our similarities within the species is something that is allowing the species as a whole to adapt to the problematic control system. This diseased portion of humanity known as the control system is losing its mass influence, and the loss of influence is growing and becoming more pronounced with every day that goes by.

For example, as I’ve discussed in the past, more than ever we are now seeing repeated government lies, propaganda, entire operations including false flags and fake terror operations all being pushed on the masses at all-time rates, all the while a growing significant percentage of the human population is not even blinking at these events. It’s as if these false flag shootings, lies, propaganda and staged terror is not even happening. The anxiety it’s supposed to produce is not there and the lies they tell are not believed. Awakened humanity is increasingly seeing government and its lying apparatus as an irrelevant part of life.

We all know the control system is very capable of violence. Yes, they will do anything they can to put every single one of us in a cage (jail, prison) or to take away our money (taxes). Yes they will write thousands of laws to make it easier and easier to attack your freedom and steal your money. And yes they will continue to attack your mind with staged fear (terrorism, false flags and engineered natural events). Awakened humanity is aware of what it is dealing with and it is aware of its individual limitations so it tolerates what it sees, quietly marches on ignoring the fear and quietly awaits the moment when all the cards will fall apart for the control system. 

Human progress

Many who are fully awakened realize that essentially all human progress occurs slowly and incrementally. That is the reason why we all have associates, friends and family who are still asleep in the matrix of lies. We understand it is a slow process. It’s the process of human mental, spiritual, and conscious evolution that we are seeing in motion in real-time. Its happening right now and it’s very real.

I firmly believe humanity is actually adapting to the problem of government. Advanced humanity sees the problem and now it is fully understanding what it’s dealing with. This new and evolving understanding is giving way to the evolutionary process of overcoming government. Humanity is intrinsically changing how it thinks in response to the problem of government. Think for a moment how just a century ago no one had any clue what a false flag was. Can you imagine that?

Here we are in the first quarter of the 21st century and humanity’s mentality is advancing beyond its years even as a huge segment is still stuck on the paradigm of entertainment allowing celebrities, Hollywood and TV to influence their perception of the world. Advanced humanity, nonetheless, is moving forward confidently. Those who are awakened cannot be un-awakened. The awakening process is a one-way street. It’s a process that moves forward not backward. Mathematically speaking there will be more (not less) awakened people on earth tomorrow than yesterday, and so on. 

All of these factors put together define the evolution of humanity but not in the sense taught to children in public schools. This is the true and real evolution of the human thought process which includes its new awareness of itself, its new awareness of freedom, and full awareness of its enslavement to government and how it employs the current propaganda control system.

I believe this awareness alone is all that is needed for humanity to guarantee victory over the control system. It may sound crazy and exaggerated but this awareness alone will activate the spirit of freedom deep inside the minds of humans and it will activate the creativity in humanity to do whatever it takes to resist the control system. This resistance, when exercised on a mass scale will deal a blow to the control system in ways we can’t imagine. 

So no one should be surprised that the control system will soon be using the U.S. military to practice intimidating Americans and pulling them out of their apartments (Jade Helm 15 operation officially starting soon). That’s because deep down the control system knows what it is up against. It’s up against a sophisticated species that is aware, is watching, is vigilant, loves freedom and most important, is evolving mentally. This new adaptation by the species to the problem of government will ultimately be the greatest threat to the control system. The controllers are hoping to overcome this by spreading fear. They know, however, that if they fail to spread their fear it is game over. Are you ready? Will you be ready when things get much worse? Is the greater picture finally coming together?

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Comparing societal conceptions from the nineteen fifties to today’s is an exercise in mental flagellation, but it is now easy to understand how malleable the human mind is after years of reading the works of competent authors on the real state of the union. Humanity has degenerated into such a state of complacency as to be unbelievable.

As the art form of mental manipulation advanced, governments worldwide sucked more and more individualism from their constituents until voluntary obedience and support was normal, and self reliance was considered traitorous until freedoms greatest enemy became leviathan and overwhelming. Such is the present state of nation’s world wide. It reminds me of an internet video I saw where millions of people were compulsively jumping into a giant crater. This sad state of affairs is depressing beyond comprehension.

My mind keeps wondering how humanity could accept slavery too concepts born in the mind of lunatics and abhor self determination. Even as I know full well how it was accomplished, my mind still cannot accept such stupidity from my friends, family, neighbors, and fellow countrymen. After all, these are the people who designed and built products making life so enjoyable and productive that back breaking labor is seldom ever needed. How could they possibly accept an ideology so destructive to freedom of thought, speech, and action, when so many millions of their ancestors died to acquire it? What made them believe they had the right and responsibility to support the theft of individualism through public education and media conglomerates? Or, the governments power to kill people for disagreeing? Can anyone really support a government that kills their constituents for supporting freedom of thought and speech? Can any thinking human being justify giving a cop authority to kill someone for disagreeing with them? Dear readers, if your mind has have been twisted so far that you support the government’s right to send tyrants to my home to kill me for disagreeing with their tyrannical laws; you should also warn them to bring plenty of body bags. I’ve had all of this lunacy I will take, and your support of a tyrannical government has made the only solution financially impossible for me.

So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, nor between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are brothers.  “Is not the whole land before you? Please separate from me; if to the left, then I will go to the right; or if to the right, then I will go to the left.” Genesis 13:9

The biggest difference between us is, when they come for all of us, you will be on your knees begging, and I will be on my feet shooting back. An honorable death is nothing to fear.

The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
Saturday, June 20, 2015
Statement by Mike Vanderboegh at the opening of the Arms Expo, Yakima WA, 20 June 2015

I’d like to speak to you about the uniqueness of what we are doing here today and the efforts we are making to deal with this unprecedented event and how it affects the way we’re handling the competing interests of the participants and the press.  First of all, I’d like to thank y’all for coming and taking your courage in your own two hands and braving the uncertainties to be here.  In looking out at you I see the Founders descendants, only the Founders didn’t have to deal with the modern surveillance state.  There were no cameras at the Boston Tea Party, the Green Dragon Tavern where the Sons of Liberty met was not bugged by the secret political police of Ministry of Homeland Security, the Committees of Correspondence did not have their communications photographed by the Royal Mail, General Gage did not possess surveillance drones and Captain Parker was not plagued by agents provocateurs within his own ranks working for the King and determined to discredit the Patriot cause by goading them into firing first.  It is fortunate for us that King George did not possess these instruments of tyranny.  But the fact of the matter is that Barack Obama and his minions do possess them.  So when you come here today, you are, I believe, exhibiting every bit as much courage as the Founders, for you do face these threats and still you refuse to comply.  By your very presence here today, you are sending the message: WE WILL NOT COMPLY WITH THE INSTRUMENTS OF OUR OWN SLAVERY.

But how does this new reality impact us?  You are here.  The press is, or will be, here.  But the fact of the matter is that there’s gonna be some good old fashioned Sons of Liberty tyranny-breakin’ goin’ on here today and the event organizers are doing their best to balance the competing interests of the participants and the press.  How?  Well, first of all we have a First Amendment area set up for the press.  We will be providing folks for them to interview throughout the day but they will not be allowed to roam freely in the event area.  They will, I am sure, try to interview folks going in and coming out of the venue.  Whether you talk them or not is strictly up to you.  But I would urge caution because remember, there’s going to be some tyranny-defyin’ goin’ on here and anything you say, your identity, even your presence, may later be of interest to an unscrupulous state prosecutor who wants to enforce unconstitutional laws.  The other thing is that there are groups out there — and the Southern Poverty Law Center comes first to mind — who specialize in masquerading as press, or who circulate through crowds at these events, asking provocative questions whose answers they can later use out of context to discredit people.  Pretending to be participants, they take surveillance photos that they will later provide to their symbiotic agents of social control in the FBI and the DHS.  This should come as no surprise.  It is what they do.  It is not for nothing that we in Alabama call them the Southern Preposterous Lie Center.  But you should expect that.  They are collectivists therefore they are liars.  It is who they are.  You might as well blame a rattlesnake for biting.  But the thing is, they are not as noble as the rattlesnake because they give you no warning before striking.  These folks are copperheads, people, pretending to be what they are not, so be advised.

As for the real press, this situation puts them at some risk as well.  Anything they do here today, interviews, picture taking, video, may later haul them before a grand jury.  This is a direct danger to their First Amendment rights to do their job without threat or interference.  So as much as they might chafe under the restrictions of the First Amendment zone, I hope they understand that we’re trying to look out for their own interests as well as yours.  After all, at the Bundy Ranch the press agreed to a First Amendment zone so it’s not the first time they’ve experienced this.  So it’s not as great a challenge as, say, asking Hillary Clinton a serious question about Benghazi, or anything.

So, that being said, we will proceed as best we can to have a great event today, to celebrate our rights and responsibilities as free American citizens, and to nullify with our defiance Mike Bloomberg’s hateful unconstitutional law, purchased at the cost of his millions.  American jurisprudence has long held that an unconstitutional law is null and void.  But by your presence here today, you will nullify I-594 more directly and immediately.  If it is later found to be “officially” unconstitutional, it will be redundant — FOR YOU HERE WILL HAVE NULLIFIED IT LONG BEFORE.  And may God bless you for having the courage to be here. 

Somewhere, Sam Adams and all the Founding generation are smiling.

RAW POWER VS LIGITIMATE GOVERNANCE

June 20th, 2015 by

REBEL RANT by Michael Gaddy

 “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism…” ~Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence

I would contend that a large majority of violent events that began with 9/11, continued through Aurora, Sandy Hook, Boston, Ferguson, Baltimore and now Charleston, are nothing if not a long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably the same end: the complete and total destruction of individual freedom and liberty in this country.

Looked at intelligently and without the rose colored glasses of government idolatry, all those events have continued to grow government at an alarming rate and continually led to politicians, their lapdogs in the media and members of the species Ignoramus Americans to call for more and more government control over our lives and the subsequent loss of liberty.

Oh, our government would not do such a thing bleats the sheeple! The examples one could list where our government has killed its own citizens could fill volumes. Southern civilians during the War Between the States, American Indians, the 600 Black men treated for “bad blood” at Tuskegee in an experiment which lasted for 40 years and MK Ultra— just to name a very few.

Since 9/11 the government has used events mentioned in my first paragraph to increase the size of government, create new bureaucracies, (DHS and TSA) enlarge and expand intelligence gathering focused on we the people, given the police state new and expanded powers and military equipment and in general converted what was a struggling democracy into a complete totalitarian form of government. All the while the masses have applauded the efforts and shouted “more—more slavery for me and my friends” from the rooftops.

Are you ready to surrender your guns to those who would completely enslave you simply because agents of this totalitarian government found some naive dupe on psychotropic drugs, influenced and provided them with the opportunity and the means to commit mass mayhem which directly increases the powers of government? Have you wondered this week why 9 Black people allegedly killed by a White man in Charleston is a national tragedy but 12 people killed in black-on-black crime last weekend in Chicago is not mentioned?

This government is willing to spend trillions of dollars to rid the world of what they call terrorists—there is no difference in their mind between terrorists in the Middle East or those Domestic Terrorists who are the subject of Operation Jade Helm. Their goal is to eliminate both.

If you truly love Liberty, you must believe that any act of violence which benefits a totalitarian form of government was most likely planned and perpetrated by that government. The people should be innocent until proved guilty. The government, because of history, must be considered guilty until all the evidence is processed by outside, independent sources. Allowing the government to investigate its own crimes or appoint its own investigators is insanity to the infinite power.

How did it serve those who died at Pearl Harbor that in 1992 official government documents would reveal the government knew the Japanese were coming to bomb Pearl Harbor but kept it from the military commanders there? How did it serve those who died during the Vietnam War when it was revealed our government lied about the Gulf of Tonkin Incident? How did it serve those who have died in Iraq that our government lied about weapons of mass destruction, Saddam’s relationship with al-Qaeda and yellow cake from Niger?

How will it serve freedom and liberty 50 yeas from now when it is revealed our government was behind and responsible for many of the bombings and mass shootings that have taken place in this country since 2001?

If you still doubt our government would resort to such malevolent actions, please research Operation Northwoods, or the book Body of Secrets by James Bamford.

“Code named Operation Northwoods, the plan, which had the written approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington D.C., Miami and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit: planes would be hijacked…” (Emphasis added)

Anything in the previous paragraph sound/look familiar?

It is the duty of the Patriot to protect his country from its government.” ~Thomas Paine

In Liberty

Senators: Vote NO on TPA & EU-style Pacific Union

Here’s a recap of the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) votes in the House and Senate:

  • On May 22 the Senate passed a TPA bill and a Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) bill as a package and sent it to the House. On June 12, the House voted on TPA and TAA separately with the understanding that both TPA and TAA must be passed by the House to match the Senate action on the TPA/TAA package. Although the House passed the TPA bill by 219-211, it rejected the TAA bill by 126-302. This lopsided vote against the TAA bill resulted from most Democrats voting against the bill as a way to temporarily stop the approval of TPA.
  • Since the House failed to pass both the TPA and TAA portions of the original Senate package, GOP leadership tried a new approach involving passing a standalone TPA bill (attached to an unrelated bill, H.R. 2146) on June 18 by 218-208 and sending it to the Senate for a vote. The Senate will have a cloture vote on the TPA bill on Tuesday, June 23.
  • Although the Senate passed its TPA/TAA package by 62-37 on May 22, it is still possible to defeat TPA in the upcoming Senate cloture vote on the standalone TPA bill by convincing a few senators to change their vote. It takes 60 votes to invoke cloture and prevent a filibuster, so as few as three senators could stop passage of TPA by changing their minds and allowing a filibuster to prevent a vote on TPA. Click here to see how your senators voted on TPA on May 22. You should phone your senators no matter how they voted to help the ones who voted against TPA to stay the course, and to help convince those who voted for TPA to switch their vote.

Here’s the new information from Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who has read the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, that should change some minds regarding the upcoming TPA vote in the Senate:

It is essential that there be no misunderstanding: fast-track [TPA] preapproves the formation of not only the unprecedentedly large Trans-Pacific Partnership, but an unlimited number of such agreements over the next six years. Those pacts include three of the most ambitious ever contemplated. After TPP comes the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the United States and the European Union, followed by the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA), seeking as one [of] its goals labor mobility among more than 50 nations. Together, these three international compacts encompass three-fourths of the world’s GDP. Including the nations whose membership is being courted for after enactment, the countries involved would encompass nearly 90 percent of global GDP. Yet, through fast-track, Congress will have authorized the President to ink these deals before a page of them has been made public. Then, the Executive sends Congress “implementing” legislation to change U.S. law-legislation which cannot be amended, cannot be filibustered, and will not be subjected to the Constitutional requirement for a two-thirds treaty vote….

This nation has never seen an agreement that compares to the TPP, which forms a new Pacific Union. This is far more than a trade agreement, but creates a self-governing and self-perpetuating Commission with extraordinary implications for American workers and American sovereignty.

Such a historic international regulatory Commission should never be fast-tracked, and should never be put on a path to passage until every word has been publicly scrutinized, every question answered, and every last power understood by Congress and the American people.” (Emphasis added.) (For Sessions’ full statement click on Sessions’ photo at left.)


Please take the following actions:

  • Phone both your senators on Monday, June 22, and tell them to vote NO on the cloture vote for TPA (planned for Tuesday, June 23), and if cloture is invoked (filibuster prevented), vote NO on the TPA bill itself. Click here for phone numbers for DC and district offices.
  • Tell them that you agree with Senator Sessions that TPA must be defeated because TPA would make it easier for the TPP, TTIP, and TISA agreements to be approved that would lead to a Pacific Union, an Atlantic Union, and increased labor mobility between the United States and 50 or so other nations, respectively.
  • Tell them any other talking points against TPA that you find relevant in Sessions’ statement above.
  • Please send your senators an editable, prewritten email with reasons that they should vote NO on TPA.

Thanks.

Reflections on the Patriot Tribe

June 18th, 2015 by

http://www.patrickhenrysociety.com/reflections-on-the-patriot-tribe/

By Kit Lange                  The Battle for Washington State

 

As I write this, patriots from all over the country are traveling to Washington State to send a message.  They are coming to what may be the largest event of its kind in American history, to make a statement that will stand on its own for generations to come.  They are coming resolute, brave and fearless.  They are coming to train, to network, to partake in the humbling honor and grave responsibility of being part of the few who choose to stand in defense of Liberty.  Before an event, I am always filled with a sense of wonder at it all.  It never, ever gets old.  As an old, dear friend of mine said to me a few weeks ago, “How blessed are we to be given the opportunity to fight for Liberty?”  We are blessed, indeed.

I think about the people who I call family in this cause, the ones who I train with, eat with, argue with, and would without hesitation fight and die with.  Contrary to what the average American may think, the people who I call family are not uneducated white trash with a penchant for anarchy and gun crimes.  My tribe is made up of some of the most amazing minds you’ll ever meet, people who have honorably served Liberty, ­some of them since I was a child.  They are trainers and teachers, always willing to share their knowledge and their skills.  They are family folk, who love their children and their spouses.  They are builders and engineers, mechanics and healthcare workers. They go to work, pay bills, go to their kids’ school events, fix their sinks and mow their lawns.  In other words, in many ways they are just like you.

What sets them apart ­and what should scare the living daylights out of the tyrants ­is this:  That is not all they are.

They are also brilliant tacticians and strategists, and eloquent writers who can inspire people to action with their words.  They are farmers and survivalists who can thrive in nearly any environment, no matter how rough the terrain or lean the resources.  They are prepared for any disaster, and have a plan for nearly any possible situation they may find themselves in.  They are intelligence professionals who are experts in things that you would rather not know about and should hope you never have to face.  They are former Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps.  They are everything from herbalists to pilots, radio operators to plumbers.  They are well-trained…and they are still always training.  They are not rich, but they offer what they have to the cause.  They are self-reliant, and regardless of political, racial or religious differences, they are bound together by the basic idea that we were created free, and must remain free at all costs.

They are also quite literally the most incredible marksmen I’ve ever seen.  Of course, the difference between them and the feds is that my tribe has never taken innocent life…and never will.

This is my tribe.  These are the people who I stand next to at rallies, the people who are traveling across the country to be here, the people who I spend day in and day out working with in this amazing and terrifying fight we are in.  I think of each of their faces as I write this, of each of their skill sets and their fortitude and their absolute balls.  Male and female alike, young and old, of all races and all walks of life.  I am so humbled to know them and be counted as one of their number.  I think of their kids, growing up strong and resolute like their parents, and it fills me with hope.  I think of the man whose face I see across the dinner table every night, and I love him even more because I know in his heart burns the exact same fire that is in mine.  All of us, united by Liberty no matter the cost.  I think of the sacrifices that so many have made in the last few weeks and months to make this Arms Expo a success…and trust me, there were so many.  I say that not because these people want recognition ­although the people I worked with these last few months certainly deserve every accolade that could be thrown their way­ but because I want readers to understand how much we love this cause, how much we are willing to give in its defense.

We are often castigated and ridiculed for our blunt manner, and I am especially singled out for my seemingly rude attitude toward those who choose to write letters instead of stand, or who do things “differently.”  Perhaps now is when you expect an apology for that.  I’ll be honest: You’ll never get one.  I see what my teammates have given up and continue to give in support of this cause, and I can tell you right now that 99% of you will never know the true cost.  I see the stress, the lack of sleep, the severe health issues that they endure because of it.  I have been there for the quiet 4am mornings when, after a sleepless night spent with too many cigarettes and too many pots of coffee, we all look at each other with the sobering realization that we may not come home from the rally that day.  I know about the financial struggles for those who have chosen to fund liberty activities out of their own pocket when they couldn’t afford to.  I’ve seen them hug their kids goodbye knowing it may be the last time they see them.  People laugh at that because so far nothing has happened, but the truth is, we never know if this rally is the one they start shooting at.  We never know if this time is the time when they decide to arrest us all. For my brother Anthony, this time is already here.  If the federal government has its way, his wife Maria will face running a farm and raising five children alone.  Where will you be?  Arguing on Facebook?  Running around in the woods and going to “meet and greets”?

Believe me ­this post is in NO way a treatise on why some patriots are better than you, so spare me the hate mail.  What this post is meant to do is give you some perspective.  People read my articles or Facebook posts and they think they know me.  They call me a bully and far worse.  They call Anthony attention-seeking and arrogant.  They do everything possible to discredit us and tear us down.  None of that bothers me because I know what you do not.  I see what the others in this fight go through in order to keep fighting.  The bottom line is this: Membership in this tribe costs something–not because we say so, but because that is the nature of the tribe.  Liberty is bigger than ALL of us, and as elitist as it may sound, truly standing in its defense by default will cost you.  It will affect your friendships, your relationships, your job.  It will change your financial situation, and it will affect your sleep, your health.  But it is so incredibly worth it.

Every day I watch people give everything they have for this cause.  Everything!  So when you tell me in a Facebook message, firmly ensconced in your easy chair with your laptop, that what YOU do, in your little social media groups and Zello “meetings” and letter writing is “just as important”, please forgive me when I laugh in your face.  Come stand next to me at a rally, defying tyranny in front of a sniper team just waiting for a go order to blow a hole in your face, and then I’ll take you seriously.  Go stand in front of a federal judge as they deny you every right you have in a court of law, like Anthony is doing today.  Show up at the Arms Expo this weekend and defy unconstitutional law with us.  Choose which bill to pay this month because you don’t have enough cash to pay them all and still continue to support the fight.  Stop typing and put some damn skin in the game, because the people I see in this cause have everything on the line.

This weekend, my tribe will all stand defiant against laws that seek to control, to strip us of rights inherent in our very existence as human beings.  What will your tribe be doing?

Anti-Gunners Fail to Understand That We Will Not Comply

 

http://ok1dub.cz/proxy/index.php?url=http://www.patrickhenrysociety.com/anti-gunners-fail-to-understand-that-we-will-not-comply/

By Kit Lange

As PHS reported a few months ago, the Second Amendment Foundation—run by pro-background check power fundraiser Alan Gottlieb—filed a lawsuit against I-594 in federal court.  Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility and Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, two hardcore anti-gun organizations, filed a motion to enter into the lawsuit as defendants, claiming that they had the legal standing to defend I-594 against those who claimed it was unconstitutional.  Even though Everytown is an out of state organization funded and administered by Michael Bloomberg, Shannon Watts, and others who desperately want Americans unarmed, a federal judge today granted their motion to defend I-594 in court.

Their goal, of course, is to see I-594 stand as law, in all its unconstitutional, unenforceable and unconscionable glory.  They seem to think that if the lawsuit fails and I-594 stands, that those affected by it will simply sigh and start complying.  Surely, they think, these ‘gun nuts and ammosexuals’ will start doing as they’re told…and if they don’t, we’ll just arrest them and imprison them.

They are wrong.

The sentence “we will not comply” is not temporary.  It does not have an “if, then” clause.  It does not mean “We will not comply until you make us understand that it’s The Law.”  Initiative 594 is not constitutional, it is not just, and therefore it is not law.  As such, We the People are not bound to follow it; in fact, it is our duty to resist it.

And resist it we will.

Make no mistake: We will no longer tolerate these abuses and thefts of liberty.  We will no longer sit by and shrug while elected officials attempt to impose ever-tightening control over us as though we are subjects in their kingdom.  We will not disarm.  We will not follow unconstitutional laws and rules.  We will not register our guns.  We will not purchase them at dealers, where our information is collected and stored by the federal government.  We will not adhere to ammunition limits, or type restrictions.  We will not comply.

The real question is not “will we comply eventually?”  It is not even “How far are patriots willing to go to defend their right to refuse slavery and tyranny?”  The answers to those questions have been answered many times over, both on this blog and in the hearts and minds of those patriots who are standing on the line.  The real question, as Mike Vanderboegh has asked, is “What are your appetites for our liberties?”  In essence, what is the government prepared to do? What are the lackeys of tyranny and the enemies of liberty prepared to give up in order to take our unalienable rights from us?

We’ve answered what we’re willing to lose.  Perhaps those who seek to take our liberty should answer it as well, because we will not comply.  Not if you arrest us.  Not even if you shoot at us, and remember, we will shoot back.  In order to take our liberty, you will have to kill us.

Even then, if your bullets riddle our bodies and our blood stains the ground, know this:

We will die standing, and we will die free.

MEMBERS ONLY THE BILDERBERG GROUP EPICENTER OF THE GLOBALIST POWER ELITE

June 17th, 2015 by

http://ppjg.me/2015/06/16/members-only-the-bilderberg

group-epicenter-of-the-globalist-power-elite/

By Chuck Frank

I think that for the most part people are very much aware today that they are losing numerous basic human and fundamental rights which were birthed just after the American Revolution and these rights were guarantees that were clearly written in stone in a document called the Bill of Rights. Yet today, there is an elite group who are intent on destroying all of those rights without any of our votes being counted or one shot being fired.

And just when you may have thought that there was light at the end of the tunnel, Austria played host last week to the yearly Bilderberg event. Many of these high rollin’ globalist players and climate change propagandists are not mentioned in the VIP list of invites, and once again the annual meeting was held without any invitations being given to journalists or the mainstream media. It is their tradition, which included another New York Times blackout.

For the record; the secretive Bilderberg Group is a rogue and dishonest UN Agenda 21 organization who only has their eyes set on world rule and full dominion from the top down which also includes a
depopulation plan that is in the billions. I kid you not. And what is their secondary mission and their greatest desire? You thought it was love at first sight? It is the “love” of money, which is the root of all evil. Furthermore, Bilderberg isn’t interested in anything that has to do with the common people’s rights. Why else would they be meeting secretly behind closed doors while also using electronic jamming devices to stay below the radar? That is not what democracies or republics are supposed to do. And just how secret is this group?

Years ago if you talked about Bilderberg, the mainstream media which is also an accomplice, would have said that it didn’t exist. But now, Alex Jones, the number one alternative news radio host said the following about Bilderberg’s secrecy while traveling to one of their gatherings in 2012. “We have forced it out in the open thanks to Infowars.com.” So the cat is out of the bag and the
public must now petition their own governments to stop this bullet train which is barreling down the track and ready to destroy everything in its path. It’s a long train runnin’…“Down around the corner-A half a mile from here-You see them old trains runnin’- And you watch them disappear-Without love-Where would you be now-Without love.” Tom Johnston of “The Doobie Brothers” also knows the score.

Last week, the Austrian Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol which headed up the gathering was guarded by an unprecedented security presence of 2,000 police, checkpoints and a 6-mile exclusion zone. For now, the
billionaire shadow elite who is behind the Bilderberg Group remains the epicenter of what can be referred to as a monstrous and sinister globalistic power grab which aims to transform the entire world into a totalitarian regime and a mega-police state(aka) Prison Planet.

Their ultimate goal is one cashless World Government with a single, global marketplace, a secular state policed by one world army, the czars of the agencies, the World Court and financially regulated by
one World Bank.

For more detailed information on this subject, the author Daniel Estulin investigated the cabal for 15 years. His book, “The True Story of the Bilderberg Group,” was published in 2005. And who were just a few of the many invites this year that came to the party? Look no further. It was the premium world bankers along with Martin Taylor, Former Chairman, Syngenta AG; William Burns, President, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace USA; Henry A. Kissinger; Robert B. Zoellick, Chairman Board of International

Advisors; The Goldman Sachs Group;

representatives from Harvard and Stanford;

Robert E. Rubin, Co.Chair, Council on Foreign Relations;

Eric E. Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google Inc. USA,

and Peter D. Sutherland, UN Special Representative.

MUSINGS OF THE MONTEZUMA MADMAN

June 16th, 2015 by

http://thejacksonpress.org/?p=34489

6-16-2015 7-21-30 AM

By Michael Gaddy

 

Hardly a week goes by that I do not receive an email or have someone ask me in person how we fix the mess our country is in. I have been remiss in not answering this question with more directness.

The problem which must be addressed is that it has been ingrained in almost all Americans to accept acts of tyranny as “necessary” and “patriotic,” promoting fear of some country or entity, and the government’s programs that pit one segment of the population against another. Another problem is the huge number of people who support the very entities of government that deprive us of our inalienable rights, which in turn is directly responsible for depriving us of the products of our labor.

I must admit that any hope for righting the ship of state of our country left me several years ago. My pessimism was brought about not only by the continued escalation of corruption in our government; the increased meddling in the affairs of other countries and the quest for empire by the Neocon led leadership in both political parties; (Hillary is just as big a warmonger as Bush or Graham) the ever advancing militarization of the police; the obvious lapdog that is our media on all levels, or the rampant socialistic policies of the progressives in government. In numbers, the people who have perpetrated the above on us are relatively small.

The common citizens who claim they support our Constitution and Bill of Rights vastly outnumber the politicians and bureaucrats in this country. The reason any hopes for recovering the government of Jefferson and Patrick Henry long since passed, is because the people in this country fail or refuse to see how they are constantly manipulated into supporting their own enslavement.

Millions of people, who swear their allegiance to the Constitution, continue to elect politicians who couldn’t pass a 6th grade test on the Constitution and seldom if ever vote constitutionally. But when those elected continue with their unconstitutional agendas, those who put them there weep, wail and gnash their teeth at the results of their own actions. Of course, it’s never their political parties’ choices that violate their oaths; it’s always the other guy with the other party; in other words, “if we could only elect the people from my political party who vote for unconstitutional laws, we can bring our country back to constitutional government!”

We ignore founders like George Washington who told us to “Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all;” John Quincy Adams, who said of America “She goes not in search of monsters to destroy” and James Madison who said of war:

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”

Millions ignore the wisdom of our founders like those above; elect politicians who do the exact opposite of those founder’s beliefs and then claim they want to return to the Constitutional Republic of those same founders. Talk about bizarro world!

These same citizens, who claim constitutionality as a virtue, continue to support those who violate their sacred oaths to “uphold and defend” and engage instead in undeclared wars. This is analogous to supporting and defending the banker who embezzles your life savings and working to make sure he/she keeps their job.

Just how stupid does an individual have to be to believe we should have our military forces in foreign countries, killing and maiming millions, including innocent civilians, because we must fight them there so we don’t have to fight them here—but, the same politicians who claim these aggressive wars are necessary, refuse to protect our porous borders? If this absurdity is acceptable to you and you continue to support it—you do not deserve to be free.

How many more Americans are going to be killed, maimed for life or require continual medical treatment after participating in unconstitutional wars, or return from those wars and take their own lives, before the millions who support this madness realize the only winners are those in the military/industrial/international banking/congressional complex? What brand of idiot does not understand that prosecuting these wars just creates more enemies? Go ahead, fool; trade the lives of your family and friends to increase the financial bottom line of those who lie us into these wars! Complete the insanity by also complaining that our government is broke and you are unemployed or underemployed and your taxes are too high! (Read again Madison’s paragraph on war above.)

Any citizen with a working knowledge of our Constitution and Bill of Rights would know that the great majority of laws, regulations and statutes emanating from all branches of government are blatantly unconstitutional on their face. Yet, with undying devotion, a great majority of Americans support the government employees with badges who are tasked with enforcing those unconstitutional acts. It was Jefferson who said that any law, regulation, statute or edict that violated the natural or individual rights of a person were simply nothing but the tyrant’s will. Yet, we call the government employees in uniform, heroes and clamor for their support as they go about their daily tasks of depriving us of our basic freedoms as stated in the Bill of Rights.

To place support for badge-toters in context, please read “Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent.” By attorney Harry Silvergate. From Google Books is a synopsis.

“The average professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, eats dinner, and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she has likely committed several federal crimes that day. Why?”

Supporting those in law enforcement who enforce unconstitutional laws, regulations and statutes destroys constitutional government. These unconstitutional edicts are designed to enslave a population under the control of a very few in government. Why do you contribute to your own enslavement?

Surrendering to our overwhelming desire to control the lives of others, we support unconstitutional laws, regulations and statutes and the people who enforce them and are proud of ourselves for doing so. Then we ask others to please tell us how to fix the mess that has been created with our own support and money. I speak specifically here of the so-called War on Drugs.

Those in government learned long ago that the best way for a tyrannical minority to control a majority is to divide and conquer. Every day one can see how government goes about creating division among the people. It is Democrats versus Republicans, Blacks versus Whites, everybody versus Muslims, Christians versus non-believers, gun control advocates versus 2A supporters, climate change versus good science, those who produce versus those who claim entitlements, urbans versus rural; it goes on forever. Falling into the trap of divisiveness, we believe that more government intervention (more government employees, laws, regulations and statutes and more of our money) harassing those we oppose will somehow lead to freedom and liberty for our side. No one ever enhanced their own freedom by depriving it from others.

I believe that the overwhelming majority of all email forwards deal with the divisiveness of the masses. I know the ones that I receive do—that is why I began deleting forwards years ago. Hating Obama, the Democrats, Muslims, inner city Blacks, Welfare recipients, Bruce Jenner or the boogeyman of the day does nothing to return this country to its original intent. Most all of the things we are encouraged to hate are products of the very government we support. What this hate and divisiveness does do is convince far too many that more government will cure those ills.

A great example of government sponsored divisiveness is the program to ignore the issue of black-on-black crime. The media never mentions it and the race-baiting Black leaders fail to address it. This creates an immense dislike of the perpetrators of these heinous crimes, so-called Black leaders and a government controlled media by those outside of that population. This is intentional and programmed by government using the socialist “political correctness” agenda. Instead of directing our anger towards the government which created the environment in which these crimes occur, we direct our anger instead toward the participants. Forgotten by all too many are the programs like welfare that created an “entitlement” society and draconian drug laws that create a criminal environment in the black communities wherein a local drug dealer can make more money than a member of congress or a legal businessman. A value is placed on the “turf” where these drug dealers operate which leads to violence. (Not at all unlike the violence in the Middle East to control turf and oil) In turn, the masses do not hold the government accountable for creating a criminal environment but instead direct hate and anger toward those who participate in that created chaos.

Without going any deeper, let me attempt to summarize, especially for those who have asked me over the years after reading my Rants and Musings—“how do we fix it.”

  1. Never vote for a politician who has ever voted contrary to our Constitution and Bill of Rights. When they do, move for their immediate recall or impeachment.
  2. Never support a political party that promotes or supports any candidate who does not adhere to their sacred oath 100% of the time. Never support a political party unless ALL its candidates have a working knowledge of the organic documents of our Republic and the moral character to defend and support them.
  3. Never vote for any first time candidate, at any level, for any office, that does not have a thorough working knowledge of the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
  4. Stop supporting government employees who enforce unconstitutional laws or wars and stop making excuses for them when they fail to do so. This includes those in the military and those with badges at all three levels of government: local, state and federal.
  5. Stop looking on the government as some benevolent parent and see it for what it was truly intended: an entity to protect the rights of the people, and remember, according to John Adams, “There was never a democracy that didn’t commit suicide.” Our founders never intended for us to be a democracy. Don’t trust or elect anyone to government who claims that we are.
  6. Always remember that the few can dominate the masses if they can divide those within the masses and have them believing that more government is the answer. A definition of Divide and Conquer: A way for the few to maintain power is to have the masses under their control to continually disagree so they are never able to join forces and depose the few who are their masters.

So, there you have it. My thoughts on how we stop the corruption of the few in power and return to a Constitution—Bill of Rights based government and my suggestions for doing so. Simply stated: stop doing what you have been doing and try something different.

Will this happen in the foreseeable future? I highly doubt it. Most people who are enslaved to a tyrannical government always believe that it can be fixed by working within the system that was designed by the people who control them. This has never happened in history, but the masses continue to ignore the wisdom of Albert Einstein and his definition of insanity.

I find the words of Emma Goldman to be most relevant regarding this subject:

“Most human beings only think they want freedom. In truth they yearn for the bondage of social order, rigid laws, materialism. The only freedom man really wants, is the freedom to become comfortable.”

Has anyone noticed we are a lot less comfortable lately?

In Liberty

Mike

“Patriotism real patriotism has a most important venue, and it is not always about putting on a uniform to fight some senseless, insane war in order to sustain the meaningless myths about freedom or America’s greatness. There is a higher loyalty that real patriotism demands and encompasses, and that loyalty is the pursuit of truth, no matter how painful or uncomfortable the journey.” ~Peter Janney

“We Americans are the ultimate innocents. We are forever desperate to believe that this time the government is telling us the truth.” ~Sydney Schanberg

“Most human beings only think they want freedom. In truth they yearn for the bondage of social order, rigid laws, materialism. The only freedom man really wants, is the freedom to become comfortable.” ~Emma Goldman

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Some have attempted to chastise me for being so hard on my (fellow American’s?) But they seldom ever attempt it twice. Some have questioned my Patriotism for my hard ass attitude, but I remain in total and absolute contempt of anyone who supports this present system of lawlessness. All politicians, judges, and enforcement personnel are stupid pukes in my book, whether guilty of actions taken or ignorance makes no difference. It is their responsibility to clean up their departments act!

It’s their god damn job to protect the people’s freedom.

 

Slave Or Rebel Ten Principles For Escaping The Matrix And Standing Up to Tyranny

“Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled, they cannot become conscious.” – George Orwell

 

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

It’s a shell game intended to keep us focused on and distracted by all of the politically expedient things that are being said – about militarized police, surveillance, and government corruption – while the government continues to frogmarch us down the road toward outright tyranny.

Unarmed citizens are still getting shot by militarized police trained to view them as the enemy and treated as if we have no rights. Despite President Obama’s warning that the nation needs to do some “soul searching” about issues such as race, poverty and the strained relationship between law enforcement and the minority communities they serve, police killings and racial tensions are at an all-time high. Just recently, in Texas, a white police officer was suspended after video footage showed him “manhandling, arresting and drawing his gun on a group of black children outside a pool party.”

Americans’ private communications and data are still being sucked up by government spy agencies. The USA Freedom Act was just a placebo pill intended to make us feel better without bringing about any real change. As Bill Blunden, a cybersecurity researcher and surveillance critic, points out, “The theater we’ve just witnessed allows decision makers to boast to their constituents about reforming mass surveillance while spies understand that what’s actually transpired is hardly major change.”

Taxpayer dollars are still being squandered on roads to nowhere, endless wars that do not make us safer, and bloated government agencies that should have been shut down long ago. A good example is the Transportation Security Administration, which, despite its $7 billion annual budget, has shown itself to be bumbling and ineffective.

And military drills are still being carried out on American soil under the pretext of training soldiers for urban warfare overseas. Southeastern Michigan, the site of one of the many military training drills taking place across the country this summer, has had Black Hawk helicopters buzzing its skies and soldiers dressed for combat doing night combat drills in abandoned buildings around the state.

In other words, freedom, or what’s left of it, is being threatened from every direction. The threats are of many kinds: political, cultural, educational, media, and psychological. However, as history shows us, freedom is not, on the whole, wrested from a citizenry. It is all too often given over voluntarily and for such a cheap price: safety, security, bread, and circuses.

This is part and parcel of the propaganda churned out by the government machine. That said, what we face today—mind manipulation and systemic violence—is not new. What is different are the techniques used and the large-scale control of mass humanity, coercive police tactics and pervasive surveillance. As we have seen with the erection of the electronic concentration camp, there is virtually no escaping the invisible prison surrounding us. Once upon a time, one could run and hide or duck into a cave, but that is no longer feasible as caves are quite scarce, and those running the camp have their eyes watching everything.

Moreover, we are presented with the illusion that we act of our own volition when most of the time we are being watched, prodded, and controlled. “The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative,” Aldous Huxley stated. “The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him, the walls of his prison are invisible.”

In fact, with the merger of the Internet and the corporate state, unless you are alert and aware, it will be increasingly difficult to discern the difference between freedom and enslavement. With the methods of mind manipulation available to the corporate state, the very nature of democratic government has been changed. Again, as Aldous Huxley writes:

[T]he quaint old forms—elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of nonviolent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial . . . Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit.

To many, the situation seems hopeless. But is it?

From the day you’re born until the day you die, the choices you exercise are very limited. You don’t choose to be born or choose what sex you are or who your parents are or where you live. When you are a child, you are told what to do, and when you enter school, you sit plastered to a desk and are taught what others demand you should know. Yes, the indoctrinating process begins on day one.

Then there are the rules, the endless rules. If you say the wrong word, write the wrong story or wear the wrong clothes, you can get thrown out of school or even arrested. You live where you are told and eat what others think you should eat. As you grow older, this list expands into employment, marriage and so on. In other words, your so-called reality is socially constructed. It is predetermined for you, and if you step out of line and disagree with what the current society deems proper, you will be ostracized. If you speak your mind to the governing authorities, you might find yourself behind bars.

The point is that in order to develop a compliant citizenry, people must be forced to live in a mental matrix of words, ideas, ideologies, and teachings that are designed to make us conform. “As the Matrix in the movie was used to facilitate the exploitation of humans,” writes author Henry H. Lindner, “so the current ideological Matrix was created for, and serves to exploit us, turning us into unthinking workers and consumers—slaves of the ruling elite who themselves are trapped in the Matrix.” In fact, “few of us are able to escape the Matrix. We do not even know it exists.”

For there to be any hope of real change, you’ll have to change how you think about yourself, your fellow human beings, freedom, society, and the government. This means freeing your mind, realizing the truth, and unlearning all the myths you have been indoctrinated with since the day you were able to comprehend language.

The following principles, taken from my new book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, may help any budding freedom fighters in the struggle to liberate themselves and our society.

First, we must come to grips with the reality that the present system does not foster freedom. It denies freedom and must be altered. “Our authoritarian system is based on cruelty and control—it increasingly drives natural love and feelings from our society and produces violence and greed,” Lindner recognizes. “Our society is deteriorating morally and intellectually. This system cannot be reformed.”

To start with, we must recognize that the government’s primary purpose is maintaining power and control. It’s an oligarchy composed of corporate giants wedded to government officials who benefit from the relationship. In other words, it is motivated by greed and exists to perpetuate itself. As George Orwell writes:

We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. . . .. The object of power is power.

Second, voting is practically worthless. “In principle, it is a great privilege,” Aldous Huxley recognized. “In practice, as recent history has repeatedly shown, the right to vote, by itself, is no guarantee of liberty.”

We live in a secretive surveillance state that has virtually no accountability, transparency, or checks and balances of any kind. As Jordan Michael Smith, writing for the Boston Globe, concludes about the American government:

There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy.

How many times have the various politicians, when running for office, lied about all they were going to do to bring hope and change to America? Once they get elected, what do they do? They do whatever the corporate powers want. Yes, the old boss is the same as the new boss. The maxim: power follows money.

Moreover, voting is a way to keep the citizenry pacified. However, many Americans intuitively recognize that something is wrong with the way the electoral process works and have withdrawn from the process. That’s why the government places so much emphasis on the reassurance ritual of voting. It provides the illusion of participation.

Third, question everything. Don’t assume anything government does is for the good of the citizenry. Again, that is not the purpose of modern government. It exists to perpetuate a regime. Remember the words of James Madison, considered the father of the U.S. Constitution: “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.” Power corrupts. And as the maxim goes, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Fourth, materialism is a death knell to freedom. While it may be true that Americans are better off than citizens of other nations—we have jobs, food, entertainment, shopping malls, etc.—these are the trappings meant to anesthetize and distract us.

Like the dodo, any “bird that has learned how to grub up a good living without being compelled to use its wings will soon renounce the privilege of flight and remain forever grounded,” Huxley warned. “Same thing is true of human beings. If bread is supplied regularly and capaciously three times a day, many of them will be perfectly content to live by bread alone—or at least by bread and circuses alone.” Free as a bird, some say, but only if you’re willing to free your mind and sacrifice all for a dangerous concept—freedom.

In other words, the hope is that the cry of “‘give me television and hamburgers, but don’t bother me with the responsibilities of liberty,’ may give place, under altered circumstances, to the cry of ‘give me liberty or give me death.’” This is indeed dangerous freedom.

Fifth, there is little hope for any true resistance if you are mindlessly connected to the electronic concentration camp. Remember, what you’re being electronically fed by those in power is meant to pacify, distract, and control you. You can avoid mind manipulations to a large degree by greatly limiting your reliance on electronic devices—cell phones, laptops, televisions, and so on.

Sixth, an armed revolt will not work. Although we may have returned to a 1776 situation where we need to take drastic actions to restore freedom, this is not colonial America with its muskets and people’s armies. Local police departments have enough militarized firepower to do away with even a large-scale armed revolt. Even attempting to repel a SWAT team raid on your home is futile. You’ll get blown away.

Seventh, be wise and realize that there is power in numbers. Networks, coalitions, and movements can accomplish much—especially if their objectives are focused and practical—and they are very much feared by government authorities. That’s why the government is armed to the teeth and prepared to put down even small nonviolent protests.

Eighth, act locally but think nationally. The greatest impact can be had at local governing bodies such as city councils. Join together with friends and neighbors and start a Civil Liberties Oversight Committee. Regularly attend council meetings and demand that government corruption be brought under control and that police activities be brought under the scrutiny of local governing bodies and, thus, the citizenry.

In Albuquerque, New Mexico, for example, police were involved in 39 shootings dating back to 2010. After a 2014 police shooting of an unarmed homeless man camped out in a public park, residents engaged in nonviolent acts of civil disobedience to disrupt the normal functioning of the city government and demand that the police department be brought under control. Community activists actually went so far as to storm a city council meeting and announce that they would be performing a citizens’ arrest of the police chief, charging him with “harboring fugitives from justice at the Albuquerque police department” and “crimes against humanity.”

In Davis County, California, in August 2014, after a public uproar over the growing militarization of local police, council members ordered the police to find a way of getting rid of the department’s newly acquired MRAP tank. One man at the council meeting was quoted as saying: “I would like to say I do not suggest you take this vehicle and send it out of Davis, I demand it.”

Ninth, local towns, cities and states can nullify or say “no” to federal laws that violate the rights and freedoms of the citizenry. In fact, several states have passed laws stating that they will not comply with the National Defense Authorization Act which allows for the military to indefinitely detain (imprison) American citizens. Again, when and if you see such federal laws passed, gather your coalition of citizens and demand that your local town council nullify such laws. If enough towns and cities across the country would speak truth to power in this way, we might see some positive movement from the federal governmental machine.

Tenth, understand what freedom is all about. “Who were the first persons to get the unusual idea that being free was not only a value to be cherished but the most important thing that someone can possess?” asks Professor Orlando Patterson. “The answer in a word: slaves.”

Freedom arose from the hearts and minds of those who realized that they were slaves. It became a primary passion of those who were victims of slavery.

Some Americans are beginning to realize that they are slaves and that if they don’t act soon, they will find themselves imprisoned in the electronic concentration camp indefinitely. Mind you, there may not be any chains hanging from the dungeon walls, but it is a prison nonetheless, and we are, without a doubt, inmates serving life sentences.

The Frightening Third Purpose of Jade Helm

June 12th, 2015 by

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2015/06/11/the-frightening-third-purpose-of-jade-helm/

6-12-2015 9-47-20 AM

 By Dave Hodges

 

As long-time readers to this website will recall, I have been very consistent with regard to the sequencing of how this nation would be brought to its knees.

  1. A series of false flag events will take place that will lead to massive civil unrest/conflict.
  2. Martial law will be imposed as a result of the civil unrest.
  3. Martial law will result in the elimination of any meaningful resistance to autocratic control and the installation of the New World Order. In order to achieve planetary unity, with a greatly reduced population, it will be necessary to fight World War III.

Jade Helm’s Purpose

A blind man could see that Jade Helm is about (1) the removal of Red Listed political dissidents and, (2) the imposition of martial law and the elimination of all political dissidence. There now appears that Jade Helm has an even more sinister purpose. Jade Helm is also providing cover to the U.S. military so that military assets can be redeployed in preparation to fight World War III.

Walk with me through this progression as the third purpose of Jade Helm is revealed.

America Is the Most Hated Nation

In Michel Chossudovsky’s work The Globalization of War: America’s “Long War” against Humanity, the United States has become the real Big Brother of George Orwell’s 1984.The United States is the most hated nation on the planet as we have descended into an abject totalitarian state that brainwashes its citizens into believing that a state of constant warfare against terrorists that the CIA supplies (i.e. ISIS) and this endless war must be eternally waged against these totally mythical enemies. In the name of freedom, constitutional liberties must be sacrificed for the sake of national security and perpetual war is necessary to preserve the peace. The logic reminds me of the old Vietnam era saying which stated that “Fighting a war to preserve peace, is like having sex to preserve one’s virginity”.

In his book, Chossudovsky also went on to say the following:

“The rulers of the US state are global industrialists, bankers, and businessmen who seek to gain control of the world’s natural resources, including the vast natural gas, oil, and uranium reserves at the basin of the Caspian Sea, for power and profit. It’s a thesis that many in the main-stream media might dismiss as a conspiracy theory, save for the fact that it is supported by the chain of events that have unfolded since the close of World War II.”

I would add that the rulers of this country have gotten away with grand theft banking since 1913 by plundering the treasury and the economic future of the United States by plunging the U.S. into unfathomable levels of debt for their personal profit. The center piece of the elite’s economic plan for this country is the misuse of the dollar. Since the removal of the Gold Standard as the necessary and proper backing for the dollar, the only thing that has saved the dollar from collapse is the fact that since 1944, the dollar has been backed by oil, or the Petrodollar as it is called. In this Petrodollar arrangement, the nations of the world that desired to purchase Middle Eastern oil, had to first purchase U.S. dollars which was the currency of exchange when it came to obtaining oil. This arrangement allowed the elite, at home, to plunder the People’s money in the name of the military industrial complex, while keeping the dollar afloat despite the growing debt levels.

The US Is Hit In the Face With BRICS

The BRICS, led by Russia, China and oil producer, Iran, are leading the world away from the dollar as the universal currency of oil. Combined with our $18 trillion dollar deficit, our $240 trillion dollars of unfunded mandates (e.g. social security, Medicare, etc.) and our $1.5 quadrillion dollar credit swap derivatives debt and the continual erosion of the Petrodollar, the U.S. economy sits upon the precipice of collapse. The incompetent and corrupt Obama administration attempted to save the Petrodollar, back in 2012-13 by attempting to gain the moral high ground with the end result being the invasion of Syria which would have been followed by the invasion of Iran. Both world and domestic opinion blocked these attempts and the Petrodollar continued its march towards extinction.

The Rothschild banking system has put the central banks of the world, including the Federal Reserve, on death’s ground. The Rothschild system desires planetary unity as well as 90% depopulation. The best way to achieve planetary unity is through fighting World War III.

The derivatives debt, introduced by the elite bankers have bankrupted the central banks. As a result, the central banks of each country are looking to exploit the resources of the other central banks and their respective nations. This has put the world on a collision course with World War III. All, and I mean all of the national economies are on the verge of collapse. Ultimately, the U.S. must conquer Russia and China to preserve the Petrodollar and maintain their dominance of the United States.

Economic Collapse

Like a punch drunk boxer, the U.S. economy only needs one significant blow to bring this entire house of cards we call “the economy” to its knees. Since most people live paycheck to paycheck and have less than three days of food on hand, the thin boundaries of social control would quickly evaporate which would necessitate the government finding the need to “extract” those who would be most likely to lead a revolution against the power elite and their minions in Washington D.C. The “Red List” extractions, under Jade Helm, will be carried out by Special Operations Forces. In order to re-establish social control, martial law would be implemented with a vengeance through the use of convention military forces such as the 82nd Airborne. In a nutshell, this is Jade Helm.

 “Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste”

As would any entity, the central bankers of this nation, the Federal Reserve, will do what is necessary to survive and that includes the continued plundering of the dollar, while not crashing the dollar beyond the point of not being able to resurrect the dollar. For this Petrodollar scheme to continue, the BRICS anti-Petrodollar strategy must be eradicated and that means war against Russia and China.

All Wars Require Mobilization of Military Assets

Americans have been awestruck at the massive movement of troops around the country. The massive movement of troops seems out of proportion to the Jade Helm drill. Every state in the country is experiencing unprecedented military activity and now we are seeing foreign troops become part of the landscape (e.g. Russians, Danes, Canadians, et al.).

The Third Purpose

When the aerial assets of the AFB were moved, I became suspicious that Jade Helm was ultimately serving a larger purpose.

Most journalists, who have followed the horrific details of Jade Helm know that Jade Helm will eliminate all resistance to World War III. Now we are seeing the prepositioning of military assets under the guise of Jade Helm for the purpose of fighting World War III which is a war of survival for the Federal Reserve and the Petrodollar. In actuality, this world war will be a war of depopulation and planetary unification and will be fought for the Rothschild banking interests in Basil.

At the end of the day the Federal Reserve and the other central banks will lie in ruin as the march towards the seemingly inevitable conclusion of a one-world government comes into being.

Finally, the U.S. has been set up to lose World War III and I have documented this to a fault. The focus for each American should become individual preparation, both physical and spiritual.

Judge Rules Administrative Court System Illegal After 81 Years

June 11th, 2015 by

http://armstrongeconomics.com/archives/33280

6-11-2015 10-19-47 AM

By Martin Armstrong

 

Well it has been a long time coming, but all along there have been discussions behind closed doors (never in public) that the Administrative Law Courts established with the New Deal were totally unfounded and unconstitutional. With the anniversary of Magna Carta and the right to a jury trial coming up on June 15 after 800 years, the era of Roosevelt’s big government is quietly unraveling.

A federal judge’s ruling against the Securities and Exchange Commission for using its own Administrative Law judges in an insider trading case is perhaps the beginning of the end of an alternative system of justice that took root in the New Deal. Constitutionally, the socialists tore everything about the idea of a Democracy apart. It was more than taxing one party to the cheers of another in denial of equal protection. It was about creating administrative agencies (1) delegating them to create rules with the force of law as if passed by Congress sanctioned by the people; (2) the creation of administrative courts that defeated the Tripartite government structure usurping all power into the hand of the executive branch, as if this were a dictatorship run by the great hoard of unelected officials.

Not discussed in the coverage of this story is that the Administrative Law Courts are a fiefdom, to put it mildly. They have long been corrupt and traditionally rule in favor of their agencies, making it very costly for anyone to even try to defend themselves. If someone were to attempt this feat, first they have to wear the costs of an Administration proceeding and appeal to an Article III court judge, then they must appeal to the Court of Appeals, and finally plea to the Supreme Court. The cost of such adventures is well into the millions, and good luck on actually getting justice.

Furthermore, Administrative Law Courts cannot sentence you to prison, but they can fine you into bankruptcy. So the lack of a criminal prosecution meant the judges did not have to be lawyers. They could be anyone’s brother-in-law looking for a job where he just rules in favor of the agency not to be bothered with law. Unless the victim has a pile of money, there is no real chance that he or she can afford to defend themselves. This is why the agencies cut deals with the big houses and prosecute the small upstarts who lack the funds to defend themselves.

In a 45-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Leigh Martin May in Atlanta issued an injunction halting Administrative Law proceedings against Charles Hill, a businessman who the SEC accused of reaping an illegal $744,000 profit trading in Radian Systems stock. This is typical. The legal fees involved will exceed the amount of money he is alleged to have made, the typical result is to just pay the fine and they go away, it is cheaper.

The judge ruled that the SEC agency violated the Appointments Clause of the Constitution by subjecting Hill to proceedings before an Administrative Law judge, who isn’t directly accountable to the president, officials in charge of the SEC, or the courts under Article III. The ruling is 81 years overdue. The entire structure of administrative agencies blackmailing people has been outrageous. Then you take the banks who just entered a plea of CRIMINALLY guilty to manipulating markets. They are now formally FELONS who engaged in violating SEC rules and thus under the SEC rules, they are no longer eligible for a banking license. The banks are “too big to jail” and the SEC has waived their own rules, of course, to exempt the banks. So they can engage in fraud and manipulation, get caught, pay billions in fines, and the SEC exempts them from losing their licenses. This is how corrupt the administrative agencies really are.

6-11-2015 10-20-31 AM

This new decision calling the Administrative Law Courts what they really are is reminiscent of the notorious extrajudicial proceedings of the Star Chamber operated by King James I. The court of Chancery set up outside of the King’s Bench, so there were no trials by jury. It had the same purpose, to circumvent the law. This is where our Fifth Amendment privilege came into being. That came about following the trial of John Lilburne (1615-1657) for handing out a pamphlet the government did not like.

The Miranda decision is hated by police, prosecutors, right-wing judges, politicians, and citizens. The decision is based upon the history of the right not to be coerced that began with the famous trial of John Lilburn before the English court of the Star Chamber in 1637 where he stood tall and objected to the King’s torture. Lilburn’s crime was handing out pamphlets against the king. John Lilburne (1615–1657) was a leader in the Leveller Movement of the 1640s and was a prolific pamphleteer who defended religious and individual liberty of the people. He was imprisoned many times for his views and was active in the army of the New Parliament rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. In October 1649, he was arrested and tried for High Treason for printing and circulating books and pamphlets critical of the government but was acquitted of all charges by a jury of his peers.

THE DUMBDOWN OF PRESCHOOL EDUCATION

June 10th, 2015 by


    http://abcsofdumbdown.blogspot.com/2015/05/communist

-pre-school-education-on.html

Are YOU going to be one of the parents to draw a line in the red sand?

IF NOT YOU, WHO?

I. Before continuing on with the following post Early Learning From Birth To Age Five by Mary Thompson 3D Research Group, it is important to know exactly what this early childhood agenda is all about.

SOME HISTORY:

ABCs of DumbDown: COMMUNIST PRE-SCHOOL EDUCATION ON STEROIDS

1969… Soviet Preschool Education, Volume I: Program of Instruction, Henry Chauncey, Chief Editor, Educational Testing Service, Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Inc. Introduction by Urie Bronfenbrenner.

6-10-2015 10-43-57 AM

Excerpted from Introduction by Prof. Uri Bronfenbrenner 1969:

“You really are a nation of individualists!” (Soviet psychologist’s comments made to Bronfenbrenner after viewing individualistic activities of children, working on their own, not in a group, in an American daycare center in nineteen sixties). Wasn’t it individualists who made our country the envy of the world, individualists who had the most patents (inventions), did important medical, agricultural, space. scientific research, etc? These individualists made our nation the “go to” country for millions of immigrants, including those escaping the communist collectivist philosophy espoused by the Soviet psychologist working with Prof. Bronfenbrenner.

“…But if the rest of the community is more in evidence in a Soviet nursery school than in its American counterpart, there is one group that is less influential: parents.” (Bronfenbrenner, born in Russia, deeply involved in passage of 1975 Head Start legislation).

Urie Bronfenbrenner – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

II. AMERICANIZATION OF SOVIET PRESCHOOL EDUCATION

Pilot program from California, discussed below by Mary Thompson, contains major components of family-busting requirements spelled out 40 years ago in the Humphrey-Hawkins Child and Family Services Act. [The New York Times carried an article by Edward B. Fiske entitled “Early Schooling Is Now the Rage” in its April 13, 1986 issue which explained: “Mr. Nixon [early seventies] not only vetoed the bill (Humphrey-Hawkins) but also fired off a scathing message to Congress, proclaiming that he would have no part in in the “Sovietizing” of American Society. “Good public policy requires that we enhance rather than diminish both parental authority and parental involvement with children.”]

CHARLOTTE’S COMMENT:

AMERICANS SUCCESSFULLY STOPPED, FROM MID-SEVENTIES TO PRESENT, MOST, BUT NOT ALL, COMMUNIST FAMILY-BUSTING EDUCATION AND HUMAN SERVICES BILLS (SEE LINKS BELOW TO MOST RECENT LEGISLATION AND CONGRESS/SENATE TEL. NUMBERS TO CALL TO REQUEST “NO, NO, NO” VOTES.)

SHUT DOWN CONGRESS TELEPHONE SWITCHBOARD WITH YOUR CALLS. 202-224-3121 IS CENTRAL SWITCHBOARD NUMBER FOR ALL CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS.

DON’T STOP UNTIL CONGRESS STOPS THROWING THESE FAMILY-DESTROYING BILLS AT US.

[NOW, with Republicans co-sponsoring communistic legislation, with support from so-called Republican/neoconservative organizations and media such as National Review, such legislation could easily sail through UNLESS THE GRASSROOTS (YOU) STOP THEM, AS IT DID WHEN IT STOPPED REPUBLICAN REP. JOHN KLINE’S HR5, STUDENT SUCCESS ACT, IN FEBRUARY of 2015!

YOU DID IT IN FEBRUARY. YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN.

ABCs of DumbDown: Wrong, Wrong, Wrong on H.R. 5

III. EARLY LEARNING FROM BIRTH TO AGE 5

(From Mary Thompson, 3D Research Group)

Right on cue, the orchestration of national Early Learning and simultaneous formal public/private collaboration at state level in California and most likely in other states, is tuning up to create a “road map’ for so called “Early Education” from BIRTH to age 5. (emphasis added by this commentator). The idea is nothing new. In fact Santa Clara County Office of Education’s Master Plan for Early Learning (2010) calls for starting before birth with prenatal visits to prospective parents.

The Associated Press article from San Jose Mercury News (5/29/15) blatantly spells out the process of change agents, working together to advance agendas on the public whether the public wants it or not. California may be identified as “the right place to start” in the view of the perpetrators, but the obvious implication is to provide a “roadmap” for other states to follow. Connect that with ABCs of DumbDown: RED ALERT! RED ALERT! RED regarding State of Washington Senator Patty Murray’s Early Learning Bill S1380, and it becomes abundantly clear how systems managed governance works.

San Jose Mercury News 05/29/2015, Page B06

California
Coalition targets achievement gaps
Miller among members of early education group

By Christine Armario

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES ­ A coalition of political leaders, business executives and academics announced Thursday that they will team up to build a roadmap for improving early education in California. The Right Start Commission, which includes former U.S. Rep. George Miller and Apple Vice President Lisa Jackson, will work with public and private sector partners to provide the state with “holistic, first-class development” for children from birth to age 5, Miller said. Early education is widely considered pivotal for preparing children for success in school and helping reduce long-standing achievement gaps.

Those gaps can start early: By age 3, children from privileged families have heard 30 million more words than children from low-income backgrounds, according to a University of Kansas study published in 2003. Miller, a Democrat who spent decades championing education while a congressman, said approaches to early education have been piecemeal, resulting in “huge gaps” in opportunities for physical and cognitive development. He said the commission will examine shortfalls in quality and access and work with state and business leaders on solutions.

“I think California is the right state to start that,” Miller said. “This commission will help provide a roadmap.”

California’s state-funded pre-K program serves just 18 percent of 4-year-old children and lags on numerous quality indicators, according to a recent study by the National Institute for Early Education Research. The state spent $4,298 per child enrolled in the 2013-14 school year, an amount that has remained largely unchanged over the past decade.

Jim Steyer, CEO of the education group launching the commission, Common Sense Media, said the coalition will present its findings to business, political and education leaders in hopes of moving their recommendations forward. “Every child deserves a fair start in life, and the only way we can ensure that happens is to provide all kids with the care, support and quality learning experiences they need to be successful from day one,” he said.

George Miller part of new early-childhood panel

By Josh Richman

Thursday, May 28th, 2015 at 11:57 am in Darrell Steinberg, education, George Miller.

Former Rep. George Miller is among the high-profile members of a new “ Right Start Commission” aimed at helping modernize California’s early-childhood services. The commission, rolled out Thursday by Common Sense Kids Action, will develop a plan for providing universal, high-quality access to early learning and support systems from birth to age 5. The panel will examine both government’s role in providing such services, and the private sector’s responsibility to ensure a good start for employees’ children; its recommendations will become a legislative blueprint.

“Every child deserves a fair start in life and the only way we can ensure that happens is to provide all kids with the care, support and quality learning experiences they need to be successful from day one,” Common Sense Media CEO Jim Steyer, who’ll also serve on the commission, said in a news release.

“We know that improving early childhood education is one of the best investments we can make. Yet, across the nation millions of American kids are denied this critical opportunity year after year. With the Right Start Commission, Common Sense Kids Action will kick off an effort to reimagine early childhood services in California and create a model for the nation to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed.”

The commission’s launch is in conjunction with the Invest In US coalition President Obama unveiled in 2014 to improve the quality of and access to early childhood education for children throughout the country. It will hold a series of statewide and national events over the remainder of the year to collect input from early education and care practitioners, parents, educators and respected researchers.

Besides Steyer and Miller, who just retired after 40 years in the House as a leader on education issues, the commission’s members include Salesforce Chairman and CEO Marc Benioff; PolicyLink Founder and CEO Angela Glover Blackwell; Stanford University Professor Linda Darling-Hammond; Institute for InterGroup Understanding Chair and CEO George Halvorson; Center for Youth Wellness Founder and CEO Nadine Burke Harris; Apple Vice President of Environmental Initiatives Lisa Jackson; Heising-Simons Foundation President Elizabeth Simons; and former state Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento.

“Early investment in our youngest children is essential to their long-term success as individuals and a bright future for California,” Steinberg said in the news release. “Now, more than ever, we must move kids to the top of our agenda and provide them with the resources they need to compete and succeed in a global economy. The Right Start Commission is a critical first step toward achieving that vision.”

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

This problem of child indoctrination has been going on in America for over a hundred years, and as the families involved into two income earners someone had to take care of their children. Is the reader alert enough to figure out this was planned? Now, in many cities they are taking over children’s intellectual development right from the get go. Is it any wonder we are a totally divided country? Can you accept the proven fact that these people are committed communist educators? Are you beginning to understand that America has been under attack within; from the get go? Take this to the bank folks; unless a nation is bound together in support of an individualist, self responsible, universal doctrine, communitarians will creep in like a thief in the night and totally destroy individualism, and its government.

America is living proof of that!
