By Publius Huldah.
In a previous paper, I explained the shift from the philosophy of our
Framers, which was based on Logic, Fixed Principles & Judeo/Christian
Morality, to the pragmatist/existentialist mindset of today. With our
mindset of today, we are “freed” from the notion that some things are
True, other things are False; some things are Right, other things are
Wrong; and that there exist fixed Standards and Principles such as the
U.S. Constitution and the moral laws to which we must conform.
Today, we have nothing to guide us but our own feelings: “I like it”, “I
don’t like it”, “I agree”, “I don’t agree”, I “believe” or “I don’t
believe”. That is the essence of the existentialist mindset: we make
“choices” on the basis of no standard except for what we “like”. Or don’t
like. When people disagree, those with The Power decide on the basis of
what they like.
Our politicians ignore Our Constitution. They do whatever they want. Every
day, the President violates the Constitution he swore to protect; and
Congress does nothing about it. How could Congress do anything about it?
Since they too abandoned the Constitution, they have no Objective Standard
by which to judge the President. All they can say is, “I don’t agree”.
And WE THE PEOPLE don’t hold our politicians accountable for their
violations of Our Constitution. We keep re-electing them! Why? Because
we too have abandoned the Standard by which to judge their acts: Have you
read Our Declaration of Independence and Our Constitution? Do you
understand the concepts of “enumerated powers”, “federalism” and “rule of
Our Existentialist U.S. Senator, Marco Rubio
All our politicians fall short of the mark. None of them seem to
understand that they are obligated to obey Our Constitution; and that they
have no right to elevate into law their own personal views. They all
illustrate the intellectual and moral collapse of our time even the
charismatic Tea Party star, Sen. Marco Rubio (R, Fl). Consider his speech
of August 2, 2011 before the Senate. 1 You can read it here, and watch it
A few paragraphs into his speech, Rubio says:
I would remind many like myself that were elected in the last election
cycle, tightly embracing the principles of our Constitution… [boldface
Oh! A tea party candidate who will “tightly embrac[e] the principles of
our Constitution”! We in the Tea Party are all for that, aren’t we?
But then, Rubio goes on to speak of the dispute “between two very
different visions of America’s future”.
One group, Rubio tells us, “believe that the job of government is [to]
deliver us economic justice, which basically means: an economy where
everyone does well or as well as possibly can be done.”
The other group believes “it’s not the government’s job to guarantee an
outcome but to guarantee the opportunity to fulfill your dreams and
He’s doing OK so far. But then, he goes on to say, respecting the two
views: “By the way, one [is] not more or less patriotic than the other.”
And, “One is not more moral than the other.” 2
No Moral Distinctions?
WHAT? He sees no moral distinction between, on the one hand, a government
which takes by force property from one group of people and gives it to
other people to whom it does not belong; and, on the other hand, the free
country with a federal government of limited and enumerated powers created
by Our Constitution? No moral distinction between legalized plunder and a
federal government which respects the private property of The People? 3
When one abandons the moral Principle, “Thou shalt not steal”; then there
is no impediment to stealing assuming you have the power to do it. So,
stealing is just fine when the federal government does it because they
have the power to do it.
Making a Choice By What Criteria?
Rubio goes on to say:
…America is divided on this point … we must decide …what kind of
government do we want to have and what role do we want it to have in
Folks! WE THE PEOPLE have already decided this issue: Our decision is
enshrined in Our Constitution the Constitution whose Principles Rubio
promised to “tightly embrace”. Our Constitution does not permit the
federal government to rob Peter to pay Paul.
Besides, on what basis would we decide? Rubio has already told us that
there are no moral distinctions between a government which robs Peter to
pay Paul, and a government which respects the private property of Peter.
Rubio has already told us that those who advocate legalized plunder are
“patriots” to the same extent as those who oppose such plunder.
So! If there are no moral distinctions between the two “very different
visions”, and we all go along with Rubio’s abandonment of his promise to
“tightly embrace” the Principles of the Constitution, then on what basis
do we decide? We have no basis for making a decision other than our own
“likes” and “dislikes”.
And THAT is the existentialist mindset. A mind “freed” from all standards
other than, “I want” or “I don’t want”. “I like” or “I don’t like”.
So! Now that Rubio has come to the point where the only standard is what
we “like” and “don’t like”, he tells us what he likes:
I believe and we believe in a safety net program, programs that exist
to help those who cannot help themselves and to help those who have
tried but failed to stand up and try again, but not safety net
programs that function as a way of life…
WHERE does the Constitution permit the federal government to redistribute
peoples’ private property? WHO can lay his finger on that Provision of
the Constitution which authorizes the safety net programs Rubio “believes
Rubio told us near the beginning of his speech that he was elected on the
basis that he would “tightly embrace” the principles of the Constitution.
The Moral Law requires him to live up to his promise! The People in
Florida must push him to do just that.
And who decides whether we continue these “safety net programs” Rubio
“believes in”? People in Congress like Rubio and Rep. Pete Stark (D. Ca.)
voting for what they “believe in” the Constitution be damned? 5
And as to THE PEOPLE who don’t want to be robbed to pay for other peoples’
handouts, and who object to being enslaved so that Rubio can continue
safety nets he “believes in”: Rubio has stripped them of any moral or
legal basis for objecting.
How to Fix This
I do not accuse Rubio of being a bad person. But he has absorbed the
prevailing dogma of our time existentialism and may not even be aware
of it. The first task of man is this: Ask yourself, “What do I believe,
and why do I believe it?” You may find that you believe it for no other
reason than that you have always believed it. 6
And as a People, we have lost the ability to think and to analyze.
Rubio’s speech [like the speeches of all politicians] reflects this
inability to think and to analyze, as well as an existentialist mindset.
If he had argued from Principle if he had applied the Constitution he
promised to embrace he would have said that Our Constitution prohibits
Congress from spending money on anything other than its enumerated powers.
If he understood “federalism”, he would have understood that the power to
create “safety nets” is reserved to The States or to THE PEOPLE. If he
understood “the rule of law”, he would have understood that the obligation
of people in Congress is to obey the Constitution.
And WE THE PEOPLE must return to our Founding Principles. We must start
choosing our candidates on the basis of their conformity to our Founding
Principles not good looks and charm. We in the Tea Party are every bit
as silly as the foolish Democrats & Independents who voted for Obama for
the reason that he too was good-looking and charismatic. PH
1 I focus on Marco Rubio because he like all other politicians
illustrates the philosophical problems of which I write; but Rubio is also
a Tea Party “star”.
2 Rush Limbaugh understands the significance of Rubio’s moral blindness. I
first heard of Rubio’s speech on Rush’s show.
3 Frederic Bastiat’s essay, “The Law”, explains the evil of legalized
plunder and the moral superiority of limited civil government. It is one
of the masterworks of Western civilization, and the best thing to ever
come out of France. It is clear, and easy to understand. Someone! Give
Rubio a copy!
4 Our beloved James Madison, Father of the U.S. Constitution, couldn’t
find the provisions either. He said:
The government of the United States is a definite government, confined
to specified objects. It is not like state governments, whose powers
are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the
government. James Madison, speech in the House of Representatives,
January 10, 1794 [boldface added].
The Economics Department at George Mason University provides this quote
(among many wonderful others) on its page, Constitutional Limitations on
5 Watch this magnificent woman point out to Congressman Pete Stark that
obamacare makes SLAVES in violation of the 13th Amendment of those who
are forced to provide medical care to others. And watch Stark ignore her
moral and constitutional argument against slavery and tell his
constituents that “the federal government can do most anything”.
6A bit of personal history illustrates this point: I was raised a secular
humanist by parents who were secular humanists. When not much older than
Rubio, I asked a Christian pastor, “How can you believe all that stuff?”
He answered, “I have preconceptions; you have preconceptions. Examine
yours.” I did. And discovered that I was a secular humanist simply
because I had always been a secular humanist. I had never examined it.
When I examined it, I found there was no evidence to support my world
view. So! I abandoned it and learned a new world view based on Fixed
Principles those laws which are woven into the Fabric of Reality.
Let us pray that Sen. Rubio will do the same, and consign his
existentialist worldview to the trashcan (where it belongs). The Laws of
Morality and the Laws of Logic are among those Laws woven into the Fabric
of Reality. And he promised to “tightly embrac[e] the principles of our

Very clear, yet so hard for people to grasp! We constantly hear the
candidate proclaim allegiance to the Constitution. You would think it
is the last thing they read at night and the first thing they pick up
in the morning. They make pledges to those whose vote they want, to be
different than all who have gone before them. They will be the true
follower of the Constitution. They will be a light on The Hill. They
win the confidence of the Right and get sent to D.C. where they take
the pledge to defend the Constitution. Then, it seems as if they never
consider the Constitution for the rest of their political term.
But, it is not as it seems. It is not that they pledge and sware to do
one thing and then ignore that very promise, at least in some cases.
It is that they do not know the Constitution any better than the
average person on the street. For some reason, we think that we know
the Constitution just because we are Americans. We had a class in 8th
grade about such things and we have not read it again since then. We
have the mindset that this document has been grafted into our brains
just because we talk about our “Constitutional Rights” whenever
someone attempts to shut us up or take away our guns.
Folks, we are personally reasponsible for knowing the Constitution! We
cannot afford to just claim to have an understanding, we need to KNOW
it! How can we properly eliminate the candidate from being elected,
who does not know the Consititution, if we do not know enough about it
to question him or her and be able to tell whether or not they
Cleaning up this mess starts with each one of us. Get busy learning
because time is of essence.

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”– Henry David Thoreau
Have you ever noticed how vehemently people react when you question something they believe in instead of ever being able to have an intelligent discussion with him or her? In the below video, Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer Prize winning American journalist, author, and war correspondent, nails the reason that explains why it is so difficult to change a person’s mind when they are committed to believing something even when they are confronted with a mountain of evidence that points to the contrary. Chris states that universities have stripped away humanities and other courses that develop critical thinking skills and instead, due to the historical influences of men like Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller, focus on teaching young men and women “what to think” instead of “how to think.”
Like the proverb that states we have two ears and only one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk, when we are confronted with actually having our views challenged, many among us fail to listen, fail to analyze, fail to think, and we instead immediately open our mouths in defense without ever seriously considering the contrary information, often in factual form, that has been presented to us. All of us, including yours truly, have been guilty of responding insensitively and unintelligently in this manner, and I believe that there is a reason for this type of response. The powers that be have used education against us by employing teaching methods within institutional academia that condition us to automatically dismiss any notion that might conflict with our internal belief systems that THEY have programmed into us. If you believe that this notion is far-fetched, consider that from 1900 to 1920, at a time when the direction of American education was very much still being molded, Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller incredibly spent more money than the entire US government in funding and building the education system to meet their specifications and wishes.
Have you ever thought about why repetition, an integral construct in the effectiveness of brainwashing, is also an integral construct in most institutions of academia in every country of the world? Could education institutions possibly be serving as re-education camps? Should not true learning involve students questioning professors, students questioning students, and professors questioning students not just to repeat and regurgitate pre-packaged responses as is so often the case, but also to critically analyze and to defend one’s positions and arguments? The Powers That Be (TPTB) that attend the Bilderberg conference must secretly smile and laugh behind closed doors at the “unthinking” nature that they have been able to instill within us. Refuse to accept something as fact just because an authority figure, whether a professor, the Vatican, or politician, told you to believe it, and automatically many amongst the sheep will accuse one of pandering to conspiracy theories, even when one can present many facts that support one’s opposition view much more strongly than the widely accepted view.
Because universities are so focused on teaching us “what to think” instead of “how to think”, this dumbing down process has produced many media figures and talk show hosts that respond to any questioning of their beliefs with censorship, an attempt to talk over opposition views, or with infantile ad hominem attacks, no matter how cogent and eloquently expressed the opposition view may be. When I lived in Japan, I learned of a Japanese proverb that states, “The nail that sticks out gets hammered down”, as if uniqueness and individuality were undesirable traits. Perhaps this may be the case as the status quo views us, their subjects, but certainly humanity should strive to achieve creativity and foster critical thought in order to establish a more moral society and to root out corruption.
Furthermore, the deliberate destruction of curricula in institutional academia that fosters critical thinking skills has given way to “hero” worship and learned helplessness instead of self-determination and self-reliance. Again, the status quo delights in the hero culture we have built today. Hero worship leaves one longing for salvation to come on the back of some mythical status without any commitment or accountability from the masses. The status quo delights in the hero culture we have built today. Hero worship leaves one longing for salvation to come on the back of some mythical hero without any commitment or accountability from the masses. The status quo delight in the hero culture that they have built in the minds of the masses as they know that longing for salvation to come from someone else will leave people in a state of learned helplessness-induced inertia and thus create an effective barrier from the manifestation of a “peasant” revolt.
Have you ever noticed how often someone will defend every fault of their country’s President, a huge pop star, or a star athlete as passionately as they would defend their own family if you should dare criticize their “hero” figure? From a logical standpoint, such defenses are the definition of irrational, as no one can truly know anything substantial or substantive about the character or true nature of a public figure with whom they have not spent a single hour. But yet people very frequently subscribe to the absolutely absurd belief that they know the character of their “hero” intimately and will defend this person’s honor (or dishonor as it may be in many cases) to the end of time. In closing, in addition to Chris Hedge’s video, I will leave you with a video I posted nearly a year-and-a-half ago in which I discuss ex-KGB Yuri Bezmenov’s discourse on ideological subversion and how such tactics can produce sheeple that will invariably obey and believe what they are told. Hopefully this will help us identify the ideological subversive tactics that are being deployed against us today all over the world and help all of us to transform into more open-minded people willing to consider alternate viewpoints other than the ones that “the powers that be” commanded us to embrace.

A Tribute to Joe who just turned 80
Date: Mon, 9 Jan 2012 14:29:20 -0600
A tribute to a Celtic Warrior written by another of the dying breed of Celtic Warriors, Sgt. Major Mike Gaddy (Ret) & Constitutionalist Extraordinaire.
These are indeed times that try men’s souls and if not for the Bravehearts we would all be in literal chains long agobut a few cannot stem the tsunami of collectivist tyranny sweeping the world.
Treasure the Liberty Warriors & Defenders of Western Civilization while we have them for it is quite possible they will not come again. Pity the young who may never know true liberty.

WHAT IS A CONSERVATIVE?
For most of my adult life, I have heard people refer to themselves as “conservative.” I’ve had a real hard time reconciling in my mind what that actually means. Some folks I’ve known who considered themselves
conservatives were nothing but political whores; hiding behind some professed idealism in order to feather their own nest using whatever political connections they could establish to exploit their fellow man. Others who preach right wing fanaticism are nothing less than born again Fascists; all they are lacking is the funny little moustache. War is the answer; forget the question. Then there were the liberals who saw a swing of political power to the right during the Reagan years and used it to bring tenets of the welfare/warfare state to the political right, masquerading as compassionate conservatism.
Standing in front of the Trading Post in Palominas Arizona several years ago, I met a true conservative; a man who practices real conservatism every day of his life. Joe is an American from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet. He cares deeply about America, freedom and liberty.
Joe sees being a conservative as a way of life, not a political persuasion. He stands firm in defense of freedom and sees that to preserve freedom government must always be minimized. He understands the natural laws mentioned by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence and that those laws existed long before the very idea of government. He also understands these rights do not depend on government for their moral authority. He understands that a true conservative takes responsibility for his own life and that means some folks will succeed while others fail and the great majority just muddle by. He knows that cosmic justice or social justice does not exist on the human plane and that any effort by government to implement either is simply government attempting to become a deity, taking from those who produce to give to those who believe they are entitled to that which belongs to others.
He knows that men are essentially selfish creatures and given half a chance will threaten the freedom of others. He understands the only valid function of government is to protect the rights of all, not take from some to idealistically level the playing field. To do otherwise is to violate the reason for the very existence of government.
He understands a true conservative sees no legitimate reason to take the freedom of anyone who operates within the concept of the rule of law, especially under some delusional belief that security can be guaranteed by doing so .He understands that man does not control the laws of the universe and that security is nothing but an illusion and cannot be purchased with money or freedom.
Joe understands the base instincts of those who actively seek dominion and control over the lives and property of others. He knows they very seldom, if ever, have the morals and integrity to avoid the temptation to enrich themselves at the expense of others. They are just not wired that way. He knows when you place a weasel in a hen house; the weasel will do what weasels do: it will eat chickens. Joe also knows the lesser of two weasels will only eat fewer chickens until it perfects its skills or learns from bigger weasels how to eat all the chickens it can. Joe knows the person who would best serve the interests of others is the person who would be most reluctant to involve themselves in the process because they only desire to be left alone to succeed or fail on their own.
Joe wears the scars of criticism from the socialist left as a badge of honor. His efforts towards individual freedom and a government that operates within its intended purpose draws the slings, arrows, lies and slurs of Marxist Socialists everywhere in our society. The lesson Joe provides for all who are engaged in the battle for liberty is: if you are not the victim of verbal assaults, character assassinations and outright lies, you aren’t fighting hard enough.
Was Joe born to fight these battles? There is considerable evidence which indicates he was. A true “Son of the South,” Joe inherited the unbridled love of liberty of Jefferson; the personal character of Lee; the boldness of Jackson and the tenacity of Forrest.
Possibly Joe’s greatest attribute is: he is so focused on his goals for this country, he does not see in himself the characteristics mentioned above. Joe loves this country and his native South with a passion most will never understand. He sees them both as deserving of loyalty and dedication, not instruments to use for his own enrichment and glory.
General George S. Patton is said to have commented that with a company of Citadel grads he could win a battle and with a division of VMI grads he could win a war. If we had a hundred men like Joe, we could turn this country around.
“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.”~Patrick Henry

Recently I have had a new friend display a truculent attitude toward libertarianism, and rightly so, however within libertarian philosophy there is a lot of great ideas, and all one has to do is eat the meat and make weapons out of the bones. I have been publishing articles from the Daily Bell, and intend to publish more of them so as to provide the broadest source of political ideology as possible, with the confidence that my readers will be able to recognize the meat and the bones, which will educate the reader on ideas that our education should have covered. Considering the present condition of our Nation, there will no doubt be an economic crash that will devastate the majority of our politically obtuse citizens and out of necessity they will reserve their leisure time to study and help rebuild America with a Constitution with teeth that clearly sets forth the peoples ability to hold their representatives responsible for the preservation of said Constitution. Americans are going to be forced to learn about different political philosophy, and how to take the best ideas from them to construct a totally new system of governance, and economic control. Only the power of words can save us from the power of our depraved nature.

US 'turns the page on a decade of war' … The United States is "turning the page on a decade of war", President Barack Obama said, as he unveiled a major strategic review that will cut $489 billion in defence spending over the next ten years … As the wars of the September 11 era pass, Mr Obama said America should abandon its traditional capability of fighting two major wars at once and focus on becoming a "leaner and smarter" fighting force with an emphasis on counter terrorism, reconnaissance, cyber warfare and maintaining a nuclear deterrent. In a rare appearance in the Pentagon press briefing room, Mr Obama however insisted that the US military would comfortably maintain its military supremacy, with proposed spending still larger than that of the next 10 countries combined. – UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: We've changed. We're gonna be more powerful but more gentle, too. We're going to emphasize the efficiency of killing rather than its scope.
Free-Market Analysis: The Obama administration has announced a new page in a decade of war. But is this really the case? We would argue that this downsizing is noteworthy because it acknowledges that the pretense of using "citizen armies" to realize the New World Order is actually drawing to a close.
What Obama is enunciating is nothing more than a dominant social theme, in our view. The idea is to indicate to the West and to America in particular that the country's war-fervor is abating. The US will continue to be triumphantly powerful but it won't be so brash or quite so destructive.
But really nothing much has changed in terms of power elite goals. What IS changing is the way force is going to be distributed and applied.
There is going to be a transition to a more secretive military methodology, in our view. It's already happening. The powers-that-be will seek to advance their agenda via mercenaries and intelligence agencies and to fund these activities via drug dealing and various other black ops.
Is there any other choice? The Anglosphere power elite that seeks to run the world cannot likely wean itself from its military methodologies. Its command-and-control agenda rests on the threat of violence and increasingly on its actuation.
Western economies are seemingly almost entirely in the thrall of this elite. Using the wealth of central banking, it has over time created a worldwide economy that is driven by war and directed by a few select, titanic corporations that are basically the handmaidens of Washington DC and the City of London.
It would seem to be the most successful, hidden dictatorship in the history of humankind. The secrecy – especially in the 20th century – allowed the entire world to be steered in a certain direction, toward world government. This strategy is still in effect even though it has been blown open by the Internet and the increasingly powerful "Reformation" that it is causing.
What we call the Internet Reformation is evidently and obviously shaking the power elite. This powerful entity has thus been increasingly forced to show its hand in numerous ways, both legislative and military. We have come to call it "directed history." The goal is global governance and events are "arranged" to facilitate it.
Throughout the 20th century, the "globalization" trends expanded. The state was to be celebrated in all ways. What was independent and inchoate was to be made dependent and ritualized. What was art was depersonalized in order to celebrate the efficacy of the state, as was architecture. Psychology was introduced to increase the efficiency of manipulations of the middle class. Money was drained of value and increasingly controlled behind the scenes by forces bent on inflation and currency debasement.
The continuance of this mad system is brought forth despite an increasingly generalized understanding of its manifestations. Over the past 300 years, with increasing energy and efficacy, a deliberate and calculated reign has been put into place that seemingly purposefully embraces everything that is most dysfunctional and destructive about human society.
Human beings are surely complex animals, in our view, with an incredibly broad spectrum of traits. When these traits are exercised privately, no overall harm is done. But when a tiny group of elites manage to gain control of the world's money supply (as has apparently occurred) and then begin to use the power of government force to deliberately implement their agenda, large-scale disasters are surely in the offing.
In the 20th century, perhaps 150 million people died directly as the result of elite war and its directed history. The 21st century was to see the further perfection of this system of war, corporatism, looting and bloodshed. Here's some more from the article:
The cuts would represent less than 10 per cent of the current annual defence budget of $650 billion. In one of the most significant strategy shifts since the end of the Second World War, the review US will turn its focus away from Europe towards the Asian Pacific region to counter the rising influence of China.
"Our military will be leaner but the world must know the United States is going to maintain our military superiority with armed forces that are agile, flexible and ready for the full range of contingencies and threats," [Obama] said at a news conference at the Pentagon flanked by Leon Panetta, the US defence secretary, and senior generals.
"Even as our troops continue to fight in Afghanistan, the tide of war is receding," he said. "Even as our forces prevail in today's missions, we have the opportunity – and the responsibility – to look ahead to the force we need for the future. Our nation is at a moment of transition."
The defence budget since the September 11 attacks on the US had grown at an "extraordinary pace" which had to slow down, he said, given the soaring budget deficits the world's superpower is facing thanks to the recession and the cost of its ageing population. "We have to renew our economic strength here at home, which is the foundation of our strength in the world. That includes putting our fiscal house in order," the president said.
We don't believe any of this. We have learned in a decade of covering such reports that government officials usually say exactly the opposite of what they mean. The Anglosphere elite cannot afford to give up its corporate/military mechanism of control.
In fact, one could make an argument that what we consider to be a deliberately introduced financial crisis has resulted in the purposeful expansion of NATO to make it into a true fighting force worldwide. Couple NATO with the mercenary expansions of outfits such as those run by the infamous Erik Prince and the steady emergence of shadowy black ops run out the City of London, Washington DC and Tel Aviv and you begin to see an entirely new militaristic paradigm.
What is interesting, we would argue, is that this configuration increasingly resembles that of ancient Rome. When the empire was weakening due to financial mismanagement and corruption, the use of mercenaries and professional soldiers greatly expanded. It didn't work, however, in the long run because people need to be motivated by a belief structure in order to be willing to fight and lay down their lives.
Absent this belief structure, defeats mount up and victories are increasingly hard to come by. This explains the failures of the West in Afghanistan and Pakistan and probably in Yemen and Somalia as well.
Conclusion: Here is the puzzle: The closer the elites draw to the New World Older, the less effective their mechanisms of control may prove.

The Doctrine of Signatures is profound ancient wisdom that is purposely being suppressed. It states that every fruit and vegetable has a certain pattern that resembles a body organ, and that this pattern acts as a signal or sign as to that fruit or vegetable’s benefit to us.
Modern science confirms that the ancient “Doctrine of Signatures” is astoundingly accurate. Why does this vital knowledge remain hidden?
The healing and nourishing properties of any fruit or vegetable reflected in, and ultimately revealed by, that fruit or vegetables’ outer physical shape, form, or “signature” in relation to the human body.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function—and they look exactly like human kidneys.
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop brain function.
The cross section of a Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye. And science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to the eyes and aid in the general function of the eyes.
Celery looks just like bones. Celery specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23 percent sodium and these foods are 23 percent sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. Foods like celery replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocadoes target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female—they look just like these organs. Avocadoes help women balance hormones, shed unwanted birth weight, and deter cervical cancers. It takes exactly nine months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit.
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Slice a Mushroom in half and it resembles a human ear. Mushrooms have been found to improve hearing, as mushrooms are one of the few foods that contain vitamin D. This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.
Our lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli. These structures, which resemble bunches of Grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream. A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema. Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.
Ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just like the stomach. So its interesting that one of its biggest benefits is aiding digestion. The Chinese have been using it for over 2,000 years to calm the stomach and cure nausea, while it is also a popular remedy for motion sickness.
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics. Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.
The Doctrine of Signatures may sound strange to us, but its wisdom is ancient, rediscovered in modern times. Of course, in modern America we’ve been taught by the big corporations to buy “processed foods,” rather than to buy local fresh vegetables and cook them ourselves.
Americans have no time for cooking; most are busy working and consuming en masse, according to the messages drilled in by television, radio, newspaper, the news, culture, society. The resultant omnipresence of cheap, high-calorie, nutrient-poor processed foods (or “food like substances”) in homes, schools, government institutions and food programs, and on every street corner creates default food choices that drive obesity.
These subsidized, cheap, low-quality foods are heavily marketed and consumed by our ever-widening population with an obesity rate approaching three out of four Americans. The more Americans eat, the fatter they become. And the fatter they become the more they develop heart disease, diabetes, cancer and a myriad of other chronic ailments. This is a big score for big pharma. The sicker our population becomes, the more medications are sold for high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, and many other lifestyle driven diseases. In essence, big food and big pharma profits by creating a nation of sick and fat citizens.
This structure is built into the very fabric of our economy and culture. It could be called the medical, agricultural, food industrial complex. It is nothing short of sheer violence against us—the social, political, economic and environmental conditions that foster and promote the development of disease. However, by using this wisdom of the Doctrine of Signatures we can take more of a proactive role regarding our health. We are our best own doctor and dietician, we just need to believe it.
The Doctrine of Signatures was made popular in modern times by a Swiss physician, alchemist and philosopher named Paracelsus (1493-1541) who scholars consider to be the father of modern chemistry. Paracelsus noted how the qualities of plants are often reflected in their appearance. He thus theorized that the inner nature of plants may be discovered by their outer forms or “signatures.” He applied this principle to food as well as medicine, remarking that “it is not in the quantity of food but in its quality that resides the Spirit of Life”—a belief familiar to those who choose to eat organic food while also being justifiably concerned over Genetically Modified substitutes that lack the “life force,” or spirit.
The “Doctrine of Signatures” enjoyed a revival in the 1600s after Jakob Böhme (1575-1624), a master shoemaker in the small town of Görlitz, Germany, began writing on the subject. At 25 years old, he experienced a sublime mystical vision where he saw the true relationship between man and his Creator—that man is both the Creator and the Created.

No one would have believed that the Russian government would have intentionally starved an estimated 10 million Ukrainian people to death, but the fact is …from 1932-33 they did. During the Holodomor people became so ravenous, some inevitably turned to cannibalism. The Russian government accomplished this mass starvation by seizing control of all food production and forcing everyone to work for collective farms. Farmers and ranchers were forced to give up their land and livestock to the state and were not allowed to consume any of the food they produced; all of it was held in government owned silo’s and terminals. All of it sold for export to other countries and the money used to finance wars.
This was genocide on a massive scale. It was a genocide intended to take land and farming away from the people and convert it all to state (corporate) control. It was estimated that 80% of the Ukrainian population were farmers. As the millions died, other ethnic groups were brought in to replace the Ukrainians. And it all began with the Russian government depleting grain reserves and food supplies and then claiming ownership and control of agriculture.
While our own government has not yet begun withholding food from the general population, the transferring of other ethnic groups into our communities through the promotion of illegal immigration across our southern border and from the dumping of massive numbers of alleged refugees from many mid-eastern countries into communities where the cultural, religious and ethnic back grounds quickly divide the population, is happening. This is an intentional disruption of these communities not for the purpose of diversity, but rather, to end the sense of cultural and national unity. This is nation busting. Its purpose is to destroy any sense of community or national identity and loyalty.
Where is our back up?
Here in the US, the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) was charged with maintaining grain reserves and commodity backups. The purpose of the CCC was to maintain a balanced supply of food commodities as a strategic backup in case of emergency and was charged with distributing those back up supplies to the population should they be needed. This purpose has long since disappeared from the CCC mission.
Along with this loss of strategic grain reserves, there is no butter, cheese, dry milk or any other food commodity stockpiled for the American people in the event the predicted food crisis occurs or, if there is in fact another “terrorist” attack. Nearly one third of all corn crops are now diverted to ethanol production and are not grown for food; this while the coming food crisis begins.
In the 1980’s, America’s commodity reserves were depleted and never re-established. In 2008 all of our grain reserves were sold off and never re-established. The CCC, which has no operating personnel, exists on paper only as a conduit for financing and a means of controlling export markets.
It is now a felony to be prepared!
The Patriot Act includes a provision that makes possession of more than one week’s worth of food or even necessary medical supplies a felony should the president declare a national emergency. Does this make sense? In a national emergency wouldn’t you want the population as self sufficient as possible? Wouldn’t you be encouraging them to stockpile and prepare for one of these terrorist attacks they claim are imminent?
Does any one besides me find it odd that while those jackasses in the District of Criminals scream that we are all out here looking for government handouts and are too lazy to take care of our selves, they are simultaneously passing laws making it illegal for us to be prepared or to do anything in the way of maintaining our self sufficiency? Consider the ongoing mocking of so-called “preppers”; people who heeded the government warnings of possible terrorist attacks and began making preparations for that contingency.
Bear in mind that since 2007 and the John Warner Defense Authorization Act, the president may declare a national emergency at any time that he determines there is one….even if he is the only one who thinks there is one. No congressional oversight for six months after such a declaration was simply added to relieve congress of having to challenge the presidents claim or to be held responsible.
What we are witnessing is the remaking of another holodomor, only this time it will be America that will suffer. Stalin used a specific plan of attack as he began his genocide of the Ukraine. It takes little effort to see the same system being implemented here and in other countries, obviously to affect the same result.
1928 Stalin introduces a program of agricultural collectivizationthat forces peasants/farmers to give up their private land and livestock, and join state owned, factory-like collective farms. Stalin decides that collective farms would not only feed the industrial workers in the cities but would also provide a substantial amount of grain to be sold abroad, with the money used to finance his industrialization plans.
Are any alarms going off here?
In the last ten years most especially, we have seen a concerted effort by congress, our presidents and various corporations that operate as federal agencies, to centralize food production in the hands of the state where access to markets and agricultural production will be divvied up between favored corporations.
The FDA, an agency which represents a massive and imminent danger to the general public, announced that the citizens of the US do NOT have the right to choose what foods they will eat; that is apparently to be determined by the state. Now logically, if we have no right to choose what foods we want to eat, neither can we produce the foods we want to eat and FDA along with the USDA and several other international organizations and federal agencies are working toward eradicating our right to grow our own foods free from government and corporate interference.
The fake food safety bill was passed giving dictatorial powers to agency heads, and setting in motion the enforcement of unconstitutional rules and regulations meant to make independent and family farming and ranching untenable due to burdensome regulations and ever changing rules and massive enforcement operations which are never applied to corporate multi-national producers.
Name one time that USDA/FDA swat teams showed up with the local sheriff, dressed in star wars riot gear, weapons drawn, after some big Ag producer sent out millions of pounds of contaminated hamburger or even peanut butter. But try selling fresh raw milk through your local co-op and see who comes calling.
This system is not intended to secure or make safe our food supply, but is instead the system that will be used to undermine and eradicate our independent agricultural sector converting it to a state controlled and corporately owned enterprise.
Swat team raids are now used to trespass private property, to unlawfully seize private property, to terrorize and harass private citizens on what they thought was their land. No evidence of wrongdoing is needed; only a “belief” that a problem might exist. The intent is to drive independent ranchers and farmers out of business and off their land.
The USDA is again attempting to implement the infamous National Animal Identification System (NAIS) having changed the name of the program to Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) in an effort to establish state owned herds and reducing livestock owners to “stakeholders, managers and/or operators” but NOT the actual owners of the livestock.
The White House Rural Council
A policy of enforcement is applied, using regular troops and secret police. Many Ukrainian peasants/farmers, known for their independence, still refuse to join the collective farms. Stalin decides to “liquidate them as a class” and accuses Ukrainians of “bourgeois nationalism.”
While this Rural Council is said to be focused on strengthening rural economies, one has to wonder what the military role would be in that, or the role of HSD or the FBI for that matter. Of course the focus of this Council is not to strengthen rural communities but rather to coax, push, threaten rural land owners off their land and convert private agriculture into corporately owned and run industrialized farms.
This council has been established to determine if agricultural land owners are making “adequate and beneficial” use of their land. If land mapping and identification of potential resources available in or on your land indicate that the “state” could make more of a profit from the resources available on land you own……you won’t own it anymore. Your land will be taken under eminent domain and even though you will supposedly be offered a fair market price for your land, that offer won’t come until land values in your area have been intentionally reduced via government regulation and interference, to virtually nothing. Either way, you will have no choice. And if you refuse to leave voluntarily? Not a problem! The Pentagon (military) is part of this Council and will be used for enforcement.
Modern collective farms
Today’s collective farms carry the names of multi-national corporations which have steadily bought up massive areas of agricultural acres here in theUSand abroad. Food produced on these farms is not intended for local or even national consumption. All of it is targeted towards the global market where it is sold to the highest bidder. If we can’t pay the price…we won’t eat. And just to make sure you are forced into bargaining on the global market, laws are steadily being put into place to make growing your own food illegal.
- We should not be exporting anything but the surplus beyond what we need and,
- what is not held as emergency commodities.
- We should not be importing anything we can produce ourselves.
- We should never allow foreign corporate producers and governments to under sell our domestic producers and,
- we should never be in the position of being beggars on the destructive global market.
Foreign countries are supplying the bulk of our food and our own government is encouraging and supporting this dumping of massive quantities of low quality, cheap food products while our independent agricultural sector has been intentionally hobbled with everything from free trade agreements to arbitrary and malicious laws, regulations and rules; the stage is set for our own version of holodomor.
Will the real terrorists please stand up?
We have individuals from our own states and local communities who have donned government badges and who have decided to work against us. Those individuals who show up on family farms, ranches, in local whole food stores are not foreign terrorists; they are Americans. Having decided apparently that it is far safer to throw in with the oppressors than to stand up to oppression, these people have terrorized, harassed, intimidated and threatened other American citizens all in the name of global government.
Hundreds of thousands of American citizens collect a paycheck for spying on and terrorizing other Americans. Others spend their time attempting to enforce unlawful rules, regulations and unconstitutional “laws” and appear to take great pleasure in bullying and terrorizing the population.
A line is being drawn in the sand and each of us needs to figure out which side of that line we are on. There is a plan in motion that will harm a great many of us and there are a great many of us who will sell our souls to save ourselves.
The day is coming when each of us will have to determine which side of the line we are on.

WRITTEN BY CHRIS FLOYD
THURSDAY, 29 DECEMBER 2011
I had much to say about the recent terror bombings in Baghdad, which were framed almost universally in the American media as the result of the withdrawal of the steadying, beneficent hand of the U.S. military. For example, the New York Times spoke of "a country reeling from political and sectarian turmoil that erupted after the departure of the American military."
It is hard to fathom the level of moral blindness — not to mention the willful ignorance — required to write such a statement. To pretend to oneself, much less the rest of the world, that political and sectarian strife has only now "erupted" in Iraq, out of the blue, or more likely, due to the inherent savagery of those poor primitives we liberated — think what a pathetic, self-deluded wretch you would have to be to hold such an belief. Think what it must be like to lose so much of your humanity and to have your intellect so stunted and diminished. Yet this is the viewpoint of the overwhelming majority of the American political and media elite. No causal connection is made between the unprovoked invasion by U.S. forces and the "eruption" of violence and political chaos in the conquered, broken, blood-soaked land.
So yes, there is much to say about the continuing obscenity of the American war crime in Iraq, and its most recent manifestation in the eviscerated bodies on Baghdad's streets. But I think in this instance, I should put my voice aside and let an actual Iraqi speak of the situation and its implications and causes. Sami Ramadani writes powerfully of the hell that has been unleashed in his hometown. From the Guardian:
Baghdad, the city of my childhood, is again being terrorized by cowardly attacks aimed at spilling the blood of as many workers, students, shoppers and bystanders as possible. As I write, the facts are becoming clearer: the hundreds of murdered and injured men, women and children are Shia, Sunni, Christian, Arab, Kurd, Turkuman – a cross-section of the mosaic of peoples who have inhabited Mesopotamia for more than 1,000 years.
So, who is killing the innocent in Baghdad today, and why?
In the rush to provide an explanation for the nihilistic violence, the same old simplistic mantra is trotted out. Thursday's co-coordinated, simultaneous attacks are invariably described by the media as sectarian. Few pause to ask why a "sectarian" attack would be aimed at all sects and ethnicities equally. Only a handful raise the possibility that these attacks are not sectarian in motive, or a reflection of sectarian hatred on the streets, but are instead designed to create sectarian entrenchment and animosity, and ignite street conflict.
Similarly, analysts are quick to conclude that both the power struggle within the political elite, and the explosions are the result of the withdrawal of US troops. They portray the US forces as the good Samaritan who prematurely left the scene. Too few examine the legacy of the occupiers' poisonous presence at the heart of Iraqi society for nearly nine years, or ask why the US has built the biggest embassy in the world in Baghdad, staffed by 15,000 personnel and spies.
Today's bitter power struggle can be traced back to the measured 2003 decisions made by Paul Bremer . Bremer, a Bush "civilian" appointed to rule Iraq, continued the military occupation under a different guise. Faced with massive popular opposition and armed resistance to the US-led invasion, the US recognized in 2003 that the occupation of Iraq could not continue without a prominent Iraqi component, so Bremer formed the Iraqi governing council while retaining control of all levers of power.
The mix of the 25-member council was carefully calibrated, with quotas to reflect Iraq's sectarian and ethnic makeup. That sectarian formula was to be mirrored in all Bremer's appointments. Far from preventing sectarianism, it introduced it to all the political and military institutions created by the occupation. …..
Such is the anger at the occupation that many Iraqis think the US was behind Thursday's attack. This belief is dismissed as conspiratorial, but it is widely held. There is a reason for this. Apart from the horrific violence committed directly by the occupation forces and Pentagon-contracted mercenaries, the US also created Iraqi secret militia, and smuggled tens of thousands of weapons and tons of explosives into Iraq through private firms in Bosnia …. Indiscriminate killings and terrorist attacks were a permanent feature of the US-led occupation, and to many ordinary Iraqis, Thursday's bloodshed is just more of the same.
Similarly, ordinary Iraqis see their current rulers, who arrived with the occupation, as self-seeking, corrupt politicians who use religious and ethnic differences to perpetuate sectarianism as a means of creating power bases …
The truth of what happened and is happening in Iraq is well-documented. The illegal invasion based on knowing and deliberate lies; the active fomenting of sectarian militias by the occupation forces; the use of death squads by the occupiers and their local allies; the widespread indiscriminate killing of Iraqi civilians by the occupiers and the local security forces they armed, paid and trained; the world-historical levels of looting and corruption on the part of the occupiers' war profiteers and their local appointees — all of this and much more of the story of the suffering, anguish and degradation inflicted on the Iraqis by the invaders has been plainly evident for years. I have written about it on this site and elsewhere since the beginning, drawing almost entirely on mainstream sources of information, easily accessible to any ordinary citizen.
It requires no specialist knowledge, no insider connections, no secret sources to know and see the horrendous reality that the Americans and their accomplices have created in Iraq. As we noted here the other day, all that it requires is a willful turning away from reality into the maniacal hallucination of fear-ridden righteousness that has swallowed the American mind: a hysterical dream-world where the giving-over to evil bears no fruit, has no consequences, can always be absolved, repaired, reversed. But time's arrow flies in only one direction: the past cannot be undone, and the poison we have served to others — and poured into our own veins — will eat through the walls of the hallucination and stain the future deep with horror.

America on the Brink of Anarchy
When government leaders demonstrate a blatant disregard for the rule of law, the citizens soon follow that example. When justice becomes nothing more than a tool for socialist experiments known as social justice, no longer a system of equal protections guided by existing laws, the people will seek their own form of justice and anarchy will reign, until justice is restored.
Our federal government has refused to keep its Constitutional promise to the states and the people, to among other things, control and enforce our immigration laws, demonstrating a blatant disregard for the rule of law, the state and legal American citizens, not to mention their constitutional obligation.
Border States were left to enforce the law within their own states. But federal courts, which have no jurisdiction over the states, stepped in and blocked the states from enforcing the law and today, dozens of Sheriff Deputies turn in their federal credentials, refusing to abide by federal mandates to break existing immigration laws.
Meanwhile, the Democrat Mayor of D.C. announces his executive order to stand down on federal immigration laws in his city, and Democrat Connecticut Mayor of New Haven, already known as a sanctuary city for illegal activity, announces his intentions to allow illegal aliens to vote in the upcoming 2012 election cycle. The Obama Administration supports both illegal acts.
Democrat Mayors, Governors, law-makers, judges and the White House are living in blatant violation of the law, their oaths of office, the will of legal American citizens and their constitutional authority.
How much longer will the people sit quiet, before taking justice into their own hands, in what has clearly become a lawless society?
Clearly, government officials from the White House all the way down to your local town and all points in-between, have a total disregard for the rule of law and the Constitution of these once United States. Every day, we see government officials act beyond their authority, in direct violation of the law and their oaths of office – still, the American people sit silent, waiting… but for what?
The people allowed their Constitutional Representative Republic to be quietly replaced with a Marxist form of democracy (aka Democratic Socialism) and we are now witnessing simple democracy at its worst. Washington D.C. is the belly of the beast, in terms of political and judicial corruption and lawlessness. But that corruption and lawlessness has been systematically spread across the country, throughout the federal courts, all the way down to your local traffic court.
Judges are no longer restrained by the law. They operate as political tools for change – henchmen for a corrupt administration, federal, state and local. Our nation has been systematically pushed to the brink of anarchy, a lawless society wherein the people will have to exact justice themselves, or live under the boot of government tyranny.
The people have already been silent too long. What are they waiting for?
Fifty years ago, the people could have resolved this matter peacefully, via constitutional processes put in place to protect the people and the states from government corruption and tyranny. But today, themechanisms of justice have been stolen from the people, just like the rest of their government.
The people have no place to turn, to restore the rule of law and constitutional government. The people now stand alone, undermanned and out-gunned – divided, distracted and impotent.
Three-hundred million Americans live in fear of a small handful of evil tyrants operating their government well outside of constitutional authority, ready and willing to use the full power of the federal government, our military, intelligence and law enforcement agencies, to put down any resistance from the people.
The Department of Homeland Security has carefully identified every potential patriotic resister as a “potential domestic terrorist.” The White House has cross-trained federal, state and local law enforcement with military units, staging for civil unrest once the anarchy they created grips the entire nation.
The Clinton Administration launched UN Agenda 21across America in 1996, under a federal program titled Global Governance 2025. The timeline for completing this agenda has since been bumped up to 2013, officially. But economic circumstances here and abroad have caused the Obama Administration to accelerate, attempting a 2012 completion, amid political chaos and partisan stalemates.
Everything we see unfolding today is in support of this agenda to end American sovereignty, security and supremacy in the world. They are even running Intel snitch ops on American citizens from the college campuses. The enemy is a hundred-years ahead of American patriots, who seem stuck in a rut, baffled by a constant diet of propaganda that keeps them only able to chase their own tails.
Only three potential lines of defense remain now – your state line, your county line and your front door.
If the states don’t quickly position themselves to fight back against a corrupt and tyrannical federal dictatorship, this thing is already over. The County Sheriff has an important role to play, but they cannot defend the people alone. They will have to deputize every citizen in their county, as they will face federal, state and local law enforcement, plus the U.S. military and even foreign military units from NATO and the UN. Are you aware of the fact that the U.S. Military enjoys world-wide air superiority?
The states must face the reality that “federal supremacy” is based solely upon “federal funding.” The federal government has very limited authoritywithin a state. It is the federal funding that allows the federal government to dictate to the states and the states must cut themselves off from all federal funding.
If the people fail to stand up a real resistance at their state lines, closely working with their governors and state legislators in order to put their state on what can only be called a war footing, then the people will not be able to defend at their county line, much less their front door.
This thing has been a long time coming and it is coming fast and hard now.
Obama cannot be re-elected without massive voter fraud, including the votes of illegal aliens. The 2012 election cycle will be anything but legitimate, unless the people pile into the election centers and enforce laws that law enforcement agencies will not enforce.Study the Battle of Athens Tennessee 1946. This is what the 2012 election could look like in every district across the nation, especially the inner-city districts. Remember that the Obama Justice Department refused to prosecute Black Panthers who were openly intimidating voters in the 2008 election!
Those who truly understand the desperate condition of our country are not too focused on the 2012 election. They are instead, focused upon getting their states positioned to defend freedom and liberty at the state line.
I am NOT calling for anarchy, I am predicting it.
When our elected representatives operate with a total disregard for the rule of constitutional authority and law, it is only a matter of time before the people disregard the law as well.
The rule of constitutional law applies to everyone, including elected representatives – or it applies to no one at all.
Our federal government has created a lawless government operating against the will of the people, beyond constitutional authority. It is only a matter of time before the people act with total disregard for the law as well.
The people must act to position a last defense at their state line, or this thing, Global Governance 2025, is already over. Only a majority of the states have the power to stop it! If they won’t stop it at the state lines, the people will never know freedom, liberty, national sovereignty, security and supremacy in the world, again.
The time is here… it is now. Or it is never!
Unite to fight!

J.B.I have been following your articles on NWV for some time now, and I cannot remember anything I disagree with. With all my mind and soul, I thank you for your writing skill all these years, and now that the end is so close, I wish to see a gathering of the many writers I have supported with my own small efforts. If would be a great privilege to shake your hand before I lay dead on my front porch, because I see no possibility of the local people defending our county from those traitors in DC. They are all addicted to the two party system, with absolute faith that it will work, and some hero will do all the work so they can continue sitting on their ass in safety.
The more I tell them the system is corrupt, the more they defend it, and I have concluded that my neighbors will obediently climb aboard the busses on their way to the death camps with tears of gratitude, and praise for the deluded soldiers.
We can realistically look for only a small contingent of real patriots willing to die for their freedom. I am grateful you are one of them. I am well armed with plenty of ammo for a sustained fight, and can think of no better way to die.

What Ron Paul Thinks of America … It seemed improbable that the best-known American propagandist for our enemies could be near the top of the pack in the Iowa contest, but there it is. Ron Paul’s supporters are sure of one thing: Their candidate has always been consistent—a point Dr. Paul himself has been making with increasing frequency. It’s a thought that comes up with a certain inevitability now in those roundtables on the Republican field. One cable commentator genially instructed us last Friday, “You have to give Paul credit for sticking to his beliefs.” He was speaking, it’s hardly necessary to say, of a man who holds some noteworthy views in a candidate for the presidency of the United States. One who is the best-known of our homegrown propagandists for our chief enemies in the world. One who has made himself a leading spokesman for, and recycler of, the long and familiar litany of charges that point to the United States as a leading agent of evil and injustice, the militarist victimizer of millions who want only to live in peace. – WSJournal
Dominant Social Theme: Ron Paul’s rhetoric is increasingly verging on the treasonous.
Free-Market Analysis: To us, this is a very disturbing article (see excerpt above). We have long admired Ms. Rabinowitz for her unrelenting reporting of phony child-abuse incarcerations throughout the United States back in the 1980s. For a while, rogue prosecutors were putting innocent people in jail based on the testimony of three-year-olds and Rabinowitz’s high-profile reporting put a stop to some of the worst abuses.
She emerged from those reportorial episodes covered in glory and deservedly so. But what has she done now, especially with this article, to confuse her myriad supporters who once admired her bravery and clarity? Why does she come close – closer than any other major journalist in our view – to calling this gentle man, Ron Paul (left), a traitor?
As usual, it seems Dr. Paul’s anti military-empire rhetoric draws the most ire. A prominent public person can almost guarantee attacks if he or she begins to criticize America’s military-industrial complex. Especially if that person is perhaps a heartbeat away from winning the Republican nomination for the upcoming presidential election.
And thus it is. As Dr. Paul has experienced more success, he has come under withering fire. He has been attacked as a racist for material in some 25-year-old newsletters he neither wrote nor read and now, apparently, in Ms. Rabinowitz’s eyes, he is verging on the traitorous. Here’s some more from her article:
Hear Dr. Paul on the subject of the 9/11 terror attacks—an event, he assures his audiences, that took place only because of U.S. aggression and military actions. True, we’ve heard the assertions before. But rarely have we heard in any American political figure such exclusive concern for, and appreciation of, the motives of those who attacked us—and so resounding a silence about the suffering of those thousands that the perpetrators of 9/11 set out so deliberately to kill …
There can be no confusions about Dr. Paul’s own comments about the U.S. After 9/11, he said to students in Iowa, there was “glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq.” It takes a profoundly envenomed mindset—one also deeply at odds with reality—to believe and to say publicly that the administration of this nation brought so low with grief and loss after the attack had reacted with glee.
There are, to be sure, a number of like-minded citizens around (see the 9/11 Truthers, whose opinions Dr. Paul has said he doesn’t share). But we don’t expect to find their views in people running for the nation’s highest office.
This is astonishing rhetoric. Unpack it a bit (including our initial excerpt). “[His] silence about the suffering of those thousands that the perpetrators of 9/11 set out so deliberately to kill” … “Profoundly envenomed mindset” … “It seemed improbable that the best-known of American propagandists for our enemies could be near the top of the pack in the Iowa contest.” …
It is in this last statement that Ms. Rabinowitz seems to come closest to accusing Ron Paul of outright treason. In a prime editorial slot at one of the world’s most prestigious newspapers, a member of the board (her) calls a top US presidential candidate one of the “best-known propagandists for our enemies.”
Is this a deliberate warning shot across the bow of Dr. Paul’s increasingly successful campaign? It comes at a time when the Congress has passed a new “National Defense Authorization Act” (NDAA) that further empowers the executive branch to lock up US citizens for life at Guantanamo Bay or other military prisons – without charge and without trial.
Here’s some language within the recently passed final NDAA text: “Section 1021: Authority of the Armed Forces to Detain Covered Persons… Congress affirms that the authority of the President … includes the authority for the Armed Forces … to detain covered persons,” which includes “a person who was a part of or substantially supportedal-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act …” and may detained “under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”
Ms. Rabinowitz states that Ron Paul is one of the US’s “best known propagandists for our enemies.” Now read her statement above in context of the NDAA language, where it is stated that someone may be subject to indefinite military detention if they are deemed a “covered person,” solely at the president’s discretion.
Pretty broad, eh (“committed a belligerent act”)? As we pointed out in an article entitled “NDAA, Smell of Fear,” those passing this legislation know full well what the ramifications are. It is fear, in our view, that motivates such radical legislation – fear that there will be an uprising against what is now occurring. Does Ms. Rabinowitz’s vocabulary somehow reflect this fear?
Are the timing of the bill and Ms. Rabinowitz’s editorial merely coincidental? We would argue that the bill is so vague that Ms. Rabinowitz could be seen as making a case for accusations against Dr. Paul even if she didn’t mean to.
For the record, Ms. Rabinowitz may believe every word she says is patriotic and valid, but there are many even at the top levels of politics and the military who would disagree with her. They are on the record in myriad publications and posts.
There have been books written by people involved with the 9/11 Commission, for instance, that challenge many of its conclusions. And there are plenty of military members and international observers (and intelligence officers) who will maintain that by attacking so many countries in the Middle East and Africa the US has done more harm than good when it comes to self-defense.
The ongoing use of depleted uranium weapons is said to have poisoned hundreds of thousands, even millions – and regardless of Ms. Rabinowitz’s defense of NATO action, the suffering from so many wars lasting so long is bound to be developing more (not fewer) enemies for the West, and the US, in particular. Ron Paul is not the only one making these points, and one could argue he is doing so as a patriotic American.
One of our articles (an interview, actually) pointed out that the US’s military-industrial complex and CIA has illegally built a vast Gulag in Africa and the Middle East, using the existing facilities of various countries that then seemingly do Western Intel’s bidding.
The interview pointed out that there were basically no al Qaeda members in these jails, from what we could see, but that putting so many falsely accused young men in prison for questioning was only contributing to anger and violence, to the point where such young people would be willing to turn themselves into bomb-carrying suicides. We were not making these statements to be “unpatriotic,” but to point out how US military and intelligence policy has strayed from common sense in many ways.
The whole point of an independent media and political process is to ensure that all sides of an issue are debated and a consensus can be reached that citizens will support and contribute to. Societies are apt to fragment and degrade when such conversations are blocked.
Conclusion: Hopefully, Ms. Rabinowitz’s language was chosen within the context of emotionality and not with a precision that would somehow imply that candidate Ron Paul’s language was in some sense treasonous. Such a perspective would represent an alarming ratcheting up of a disturbing dialogue now taking place in the US – and Europe as well.
First of all, let me make it perfectly clear, that I have never voted in my life and I’m not going to register and vote for Ron Paul, and here is why. You don’t need to be smart to have good instincts, and if I have anything, it’s good instincts. I have known without studying politics’ that voting was a declaration of having faith in human nature, and life experiences taught me early on that human nature is totally depraved and self centered. It was also apparent that voting would, (even if it were fair and honest), make tyrants out of the winning voters, because they enabled government to force the losers to go against everything they believed in. Too me, 51 people forcing 49 people to accept their decisions is out and out tyranny. In fact, 99 people forcing one person to do as they say, and not what they do, is pure BS. I am quite content to live and die by the Ten Commandments, and no set of man made laws is needed or wanted to keep me out of jail and in good standing in my community. If there is any one thing that humanity has done that is worse than rejecting God’s laws, and instituting their own government’s, I don’t know what it could be, and I’m also convinced that the Lord God Almighty, who is in complete control of all governments is making it perfectly clear through them that he did not much care for it either. No where, can I find more common sense than in people of like mind isolating themselves from other communities, and that does not mean you cannot have some contact and business with other communities. To be governed by people who force other people to do what is abhorrent to them, is tyranny of the highest order. To allow stupid people to vote is insane. All humanity needs is an administration to process things, not a government to make insane laws. However, the vast majority of humanity does not have enough Faith in God to manage themselves, and stay outside the camp. A man that depends on controlling himself by voluntary subjection to a democracy is a coward. I know very well that this is too much for most people to accept, but only death is going to change me. Make sure the people sent to kill me are well armed!
Now, back to Ron Paul.
I despair from so much proof that the majority of people living in America actually believe that 19 ragheads with box cutters could take down two steel towers with airplanes. Everyone, who is so ignorant of physic’s and steel framed construction to believe the governments media industries lies, should never leave their house, because they are too stupid to care for their self. Any person who believes anything that the government relay’s to them through those pukes in the media industry is seriously retarded. Is that plain enough?
So why do so many people want our government to kill every raghead in the whole world, if they don’t believe the governments every utterance? It seems very clear that the majority believes all Middle Eastern people have no right to their nation’s natural resources, because a handful of them did the impossible. What I want to know is, what you would do if the government said; your neighbor of a sixty years shot and killed your children. Would you kill him and seize his property, or hold an investigation of your own? Wait! Let me make it a little easier, what if your old trusted neighbor had no legs, and the only weapon he ever had was a screwdriver?
Why is it even possible for so many people to believe that we are justified in killing other people, and confiscating their resources because our government said they did the impossible? I may have the answer!!! It’s not because so many are stupid, or evil, it’s because they suffer from cognitive dissonance, as in being unable to accept something as truth, because one has to change their first false conclusion that appealed to their depraved nature, and conducting an independent unbiased investigation would make their friends abandon them. It is true that there is such a thing as the herd instinct, but there is also a herd mentality, and most so called Americans seem to have it. If this offends you, think of how you would feel if you lived in Afghanistan. It seems I have something in common with Ron Paul, and I’m NOT a libertarian.
When it comes to Paul’s monetary opinions, and the Federal Reserve, I don’t want to even discuss it being possible for any adult to be ignorant enough to support the Federal Reserves worthless debt currency, and the International Investment Bankers that own it. Yes Ron, we have something in common.
But I’m still not going to vote for you or anyone else.
Ladies and gentlemen, there is no one human being that can make a difference in the white house, because it is the property of the Bankers, and they alone determine what our government does. If you want to do something patriotic for your country, organize a hit squad and take out the bankers.
To Kill a Snake, Cut Off it’s Damn Head!
The Power is in those who control the counters, not in the voters!
But the sheep will not believe it!
Other than crucifying Jesus Christ, there is no other more putrid thing that humanity has ever done than convincing ignorant people their votes is how politicians were put into positions of power.
So, if you still must vote,
then vote every incumbent out for the next six elections and see for your self, your votes won’t accomplish squat.

A Legal and Spiritual Resistance to the New World Order
“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.” -George Orwell, Author of “1984’
A battle for the future of mankind has been going on for many centuries. We are in the final phases of the battle, where unless there is sufficient resistance both legally and spiritually, America and the freedom’s it represents is about to violently gang-raped in the public square and shot to death. The men and women who will commit this crime are in the media, military, politics, science, art, culture, education and they could be you and I. The future is not fixed. What we believe and what we do will determine the outcome. Many do not recognize that America’s death and rape will soon be their own, there is nowhere to hide. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion taken from one group will quickly be stolen from all.
The American Republic along with its unique Constitutional freedom’s was stolen by criminals late one Christmas Eve with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. While America was celebrating the birth of their Savior Jesus Christ, a coup was arranged. Now Savior it is illegal to celebrate our Savior’s birth in public buildings, schools and public property. There is a direct correlation between the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 and the fact that open displays of nativity scenes are now illegal. In an act that was in direct violation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights, an independent and private banking cartel of twelve banks, called the Federal Reserve seized control of the money supply of the United States of America. Our founding fathers warned us repeatedly of the danger of these Central Banks, which is what the Federal Reserve is. The Federal Reserve is a completely private organization of international bankers, which is not legally accountable to our government or its people. The Federal Reserve does not have to give account of what it does with the money it gets from you the taxpayer, it cannot be audited and its membership is secret.
President Thomas Jefferson was so concerned about the danger of these Central Banks or the Federal Reserve that he issued this warning:
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent that their fathers conquered.”
This is exactly what is happening in America today while our Corporate-controlled media and government conceals the real truth from the American people ,that this present financial crisis is completely manufactured. Watch and listen to your favorite conservative media personalities.
Notice that very, very few of them will discuss and explain the full truth of the Federal Reserve and yet you choose to worship these conservative “media stars.” I was a regular guest on the largest cable news shows in the world for over a decade. I debated famous politicians and the top editors at the biggest financial publications and investment firms in the world. The unspoken rule was that you were not allowed to talk about the Federal Reserve. The majority of people I debated had no idea what the Federal Reserve was all about, although they would refer to the “Fed,” constantly, they knew nothing about it. Yet, Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild 1777-1836 said, “I care not what puppet is placed on the throne of England to rule the Empire. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire and I control the British money supply.”
The great science fiction writer, Robert Heinlein wrote, “Every Congressman, every Senator knows precisely what cause inflation, but can’t (won’t) support the drastic reforms to stop it (repeal the Federal Reserve Act) because it would cost him his job and probably his life.”
We are witnessing the planned destruction of the dollar and the euro. There are some exceptions, but the men and women we elect to lead our nation have sold us down the river because they do not work for “we the people,” they are the puppets of the international bankers. The average American and European are clueless as to why the financial system is collapsing all around them and then they blame themselves for not working harder and not being more educated. I blow the lid off this in my new 3-DVD series, “Are You Ready for the Coming One World Government, One World Economic System and the Coming One World Religion?” and in my best-selling book, “The Day The Dollar Died.”
The international banking elite totally control the global economic and political system. They look at us as “useless eaters,” “serfs” and they are in the process of “culling the herd,” which means they are going to kill of billions of people from this planet through food shortages which they create, diseases which they create in laboratories and then spread through vaccinations, war and GMO food which will weaken your immune system. All universal health care systems are based on Hitler’s T4 universal health care system, which is based on rationing and death panels. The Fabian Socialists, or as they like to call themselves, “the scientific elite,” like Bertrand Russell and H.G. Wells openly advocated nuclear war and disease as a means of radically reducing the world’s population .
The Rothschild Brothers of London in 1863 actually came right out and explained how the financial system actually works:
“The few that understand the system, will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class. The great body of people, are mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages, will bear its burden without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.”
The economic shockwaves that just happened in Europe will soon come to America. It is part of the design of the international bankers who are moving us into a global government and one world economic system. Knowledge is power, but the people are more interested in mindless entertainment, than in truth that could change their lives. The creator of the Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford commented, “It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
What is our response to such a statement? I believe that it is possible to legally and spiritually change the system and preserve our Constitutional rights. We live in a day where mind control has become a technology that has grown just as exponentially as biotechnology and computer technology. Most people do not understand that their understanding of scientific technology is 50-100 years behind what the actual level of what science has already achieved. We live in the world that the great science fiction writers dreamed of, but are not commonly public knowledge.
Terms like transhumanism, post human, biophotons, interspecies breeding and vast array of new sciences are not commonly grasped and neither are there implications. There are new forms of energy already available that could make a world reliant on nuclear and oil energy a thing of the past. The breakthroughs in cloning and DNA are so far into the future that most people would have great difficulty accepting what these technologies can do.
Which bring us to the point of what breakthroughs are available to us now that give us the power to legally and spiritually transform our nation? Most people feel powerless against a monolithic system which is global in nature. But, that powerlessness is an illusion.
Powerlessness comes into our lives through a variety of ways. One way is theological. I am widely regarded as an international expert on the subject of Bible prophecy. I speak at many large conventions and I am the author of 22 books. In addition, I am a professor at a university where I teach prophecy. Yet, I continually get Emails from people who do not really understand what the Bible teaches prophetically. Here is what someone wrote me.
“What you’re saying is that God’s prophecy is changeable. This, I do not accept. God’s word is like a movie, it plays out in a fixed timetable.” This Email was in response to my News with Views article entitled, “I DREAMED OF THE FUTURE AND WOKE UP SCREAMING.” I empathize with what the reader was trying to communicate. Yet, he did not actually read what I was saying. I believe that God is Sovereign and that it prophetic timetable will come to pass exactly as He planned. In other words, man cannot change God’s prophetic program.
But, throughout the Scripture God interacts with man as prophecy is fulfilled. Just read the dialogue that God had with Abraham before He destroyed Sodom. The Bible does not teach fatalism! The reader revealed something very interesting about his perspective on Bible prophecy. Read part of my reply to him:
“Now where do I remotely suggest we can change God’s prophetic program!
But, we are not to see ourselves as sitting in a movie theatre seat simply watching! We are active participants in God’s prophetic program.”
He revealed that his perspective on Bible prophecy “as sitting in a movie theatre seat” simply watching! Whether you are religious or not, you cannot see yourself as a spectator or someone watching reality from a movie theatre seat. You are an active partner with God in what is happening in our nation and world. African American people would still be picking cotton for their masters, if people did not choose to get involved.
This article is the first part in a series entitled, “WHO WILL RULE THE FUTURE?” Time does not permit to everything in just Part One. However, I would like to leave you with this challenge. What happens to America in the next few years will be the direct result of your choices. In other words, in a Universe created by God, you are responsible. God put you here, in this time period, for a purpose. Before you arrived here at this time, He knew the nature of the challenges you would face and He has already given us the resources to deal with the challenges.
It is a false belief to believe you are helpless, a victim and there is nothing you can do. If there is nothing you can do, then why did God put you here? Yes, He gave you free choice and you can choose to be a useless victim. However, God did not create you to be a victim. You are not to give in to fear. In this world and this universe, at this very moment, are all the resources you need to accomplish the task at hand. We have everything we need to get the job done. The time has come to place our minds and hearts in the position of using wisely what He has given us. It is when we put our hearts in minds in that position, which is called humility that the answers and resources will flow.

From the Founders to the Falsifiers…From the Enlightenment to Entitlement…From Rugged Individualism to Dependency…From Polite Society to Pop Culture…From Rule of Law back to the Dark Ages…From Freedom to Tyranny…From Sovereign Nation to Amorphous Polyglot …From Prosperity to Poverty.
Most of the history of this world is littered with pain, suffering, and despair. Only in rare brief periods of time did any sort of logic & rationality influence the tenor of daily life. When it did, the common people could live in relative peace & prosper.
Our Founders were men of classical education who studied the philosophers of the Enlightenment which held that all men should be free of tyranny of any sort, that each man belonged to & was responsible for himself, and that no man was to be a dictator with ultimate power of life or death over others.
The Enlightenment was born and nourished chiefly in Europe and it became the world’s greatest champion of the individual and his right to exist for his own sake & that he had the right to life, liberty, property and to seek happiness…a huge departure from the “Divine Right of Kings” or “Might Makes Right”.
This was a Caucasian achievement and for the most part has never been adopted in other cultures that often have been hostile to those ideas. Ironically, today other cultures clamor to live in Caucasian societies, yet cling to their old failed philosophies, make demands on their host and show obvious hostility toward their benefactor. While enjoying Forced Redistribution, i.e. welfare handouts, they harbor hatred, resentment and a false sense of entitlement.
What makes this possible is the highly successful tool of brainwashing/indoctrination of Political Correctness which preys on White guilt (unearned) and rewards (unearned) “minorities” based upon the smear effects of buzz words such as “Racist”, “extremist”, “sexist”, “bigot”, “anti-Semite”, “hater”, “homophobe”, etc.
The Cultural Marxists came up with this particular war plan against the West in the 1920’s in Europe and brought it to America in the 30’s & 40’s. Much has been written to expose those individuals and their agenda…worldwide Communism and the Death of the West.
Another tool is the destruction of merit and the teaching of dependency on government…the creation of a welfare state and ever growing expansion of government. Still another tool is “eternal war for eternal peace” creating a warfare state through fear, utilizing the horrific scam called the “war on terror”.
The chaos and degradation we see every day now in all our institutions…the military, education, all government agencies & branches, the media, entertainment, financial, open borders/mass legal & illegal immigration/invasion, all a direct result of Political Correctness run amok and a citizenry so dumbed down that many cannot think for themselves and follow blindly the dictates of the “leaders”.
With the passage of the National Defense (sic) Authorization Act the political leaders have shredded the last of our Founding Documents, our Rule of Law, our Individual Liberty and declared war on the citizens, especially any dissenters with threat of imprisonment, torture, and death.
There is only one presidential candidate who abides by the Constitution…our last chance maybe ever to restore some order to our once noble experiment–our Republic.
I make no apologies for my audacity to intimidate or denigrate those who will not sacrifice a few minutes daily to become knowledgeable on what is being done to our country, and participate in forwarding that information to their friends, co-workers, and family, because we are all going to lose everything we hold dear if we do not participate. The fantastic letter above and the preceding article from Barbara McCutchen at http://arkansasfreedom.com is an example of what you all should be doing, whether you have the time or not, and there remains no excuse for not picking up the fight for our freedom. HOWEVER, I have been exceptionally pleased to have received so many replies of late, and the questions you have asked indicates that many of you understand the emergency of mass participation, in this information war, and I am so proud of you for your interest and sacrifice, especially those who, like me, have no formal education. Your participation is proof enough of your intelligence, because to have retained the instinct for survival is to demonstrate conclusively that you are not just emotionally patriotic, but determined to survive and protect the lives and freedom of your loved ones. That is why men and women really go to war. The preservation of the principals of freedom is worth all sacrifice. Sincere Regards, OldDog

The Tavistock Institute sits at the center of a web of evil, if one is inclined toward free-market thinking principles. It’s safe to say that most of the American population hasn’t a clue when the Tavistock Institute is mentioned what it stands for. It’s not a new organization. This London based not-for-profit organization was founded in 1947. The Institute operates a $6 billion a year network of foundations and it’s all funded by US taxpayers.
Ten major institutions are under its direct control but 400 subsidiaries and 3,000 think tanks and study groups that develop, implement, and impose some of its research. For instance, the Stanford Research Institute (SRI International), a $150 million-plus per year operation with 3,300 employees, is a subsidiary of the Tavistock Institute.
The Stanford Research Institute orchestrates program surveillance for Kaiser and Bechtel, as well as about 400 other companies, plus it implements extensive intelligence operations for the CIA. SRI is located on the West Coast of the United States. Its main focus is behavioral sciences and mind control.
The Tavistock Institute was originally established to study the effects of the condition called ‘shellshock,’ which affected many of the British soldiers who survived the First World War. The initial research established a breaking point for men under stress and made important progress in terms of treatment.
When Sigmund Freud moved to England and settled in Maresfield Gardens he became one of the main psychiatrists and somewhat of an academic rock star thanks to his work on behavioral science theories and mind control tactics.
Today, the Tavistock network extends from the University of Sussex to MIT, Esalen, the Hudson Institute, the Heritage Foundation, US Air Force Intelligence, the Center for Strategic and International Studies at Georgetown and the Mitre and Rand corporations. A network of secret groups indoctrinates personnel from these organizations so there’s an element of modern day cloak-and-dagger tactics surrounding the Institute.
The elite have used such hidden-in-plain-sight organizations as the Tavistock Institute to propound fear-based promotions that frighten Western Middle Classes into giving up wealth and power to pre-made globalist solutions such as the UN, World Bank, IMF, etc. But in the 21st century, these promotions are increasingly exposed and thus losing their effectiveness.
Everything from global warming to Peak Oil and the war on terror itself has been undermined by countervailing information to be found on the ‘Net. Even central banking – the elite’s most important falsification – has come under sustained attack.

IMF wants the world to save Europe … Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the IMF, said the escalating crisis now needed to be addressed as “collectively as possible” … The European financial crisis is “escalating” and is so serious that it is unlikely to be solved by eurozone countries alone, the head of the International Monetary Fund warned Thursday night. British taxpayers are now likely to be involved in an internationally co-ordinated bail-out led by the International Monetary Fund [IMF] for countries in the single currency. Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the IMF, said the escalating crisis now needed to be addressed as “collectively as possible”. Without action, the world faces the spectre of a 1930s-style depression, she said. – Montreal Gazette/UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: Unshackle the IMF to save the world.
Free-Market Analysis: Right on schedule, the International Monetary Fund’s Christine Lagarde has emerged to call for a united, Western effort to salvage the Eurozone and perhaps the euro.
This is entirely predictable in our view and has to do with the larger strategy of the Anglosphere power elite, which is to create a worldwide economic crisis in order to provide the requisite centralizing solution. If one wants to createglobal governance, a few “eggs” may have to be broken in the process.
Of course, as we’ve pointed out before, the preference of the powers-that-be would be to keep the EU together and expand it, along with the euro. But the alternative course has its attractions, too, if one is trying to build world government. Out of chaos … order.
And here comes the IMF. It is no surprise that the International Monetary Fund is raising its profile once again. It was developed after World War II as part of a larger global-government-in-waiting. In fact, the history of the modern age is the history of wars and economic depressions, each leading to greater sociopolitical and economic centralization.
We have come to call this trend “directed history” because not only do the results seem predictable but so do the events leading up to them. It is just as Shakespeare once said: “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”
Only he didn’t mean that history was being organized and directed from the top. But in the 19th and 20th centuries anyway that certainly seems to have been what happened. From the American Civil War on, especially, one can see the centralization of society advance, not only in the US but throughout the West.
Through the twin tools of war and central banking, a power elite located in the City of London with subsidiaries in DC, Tel Aviv and the Vatican has advanced global governance step by step.
It has used dominant social themes in order to frighten Western middle classes into giving up power and wealth to specially created globalist facilities. The most pervasive political tool is the UN, and its funding source is the central banking mechanism. The IMF is a large part of the mechanism as well. Here’s some more from the article:
Mrs Lagarde spoke out after other European countries indicated that they were unlikely to back a new treaty designed to shore up the single currency. Hungary and the Czech Republic said they would not agree to any new deal that involved European-wide taxes. David Cameron has already vetoed any British involvement. Yesterday, the head of the IMF described the prospects for the global economy as “quite gloomy”.
“There is no economy in the world, whether low-income countries, emerging markets, middle-income countries or super-advanced economies that will be immune to the crisis that we see not only unfolding but escalating,” Mrs Lagarde said.”If the international community doesn’t work together, the risk from an economic point of view is that of retraction, rising protectionism, isolation.
“This is exactly the description of what happened in the Thirties and what followed is not something we are looking forward to.” She added: “It is not a crisis that will be resolved by one group of countries taking action. It is going to be hopefully resolved by all countries, all regions, all categories of countries actually taking action.”
We can see from this excerpt how direct Lagarde is being. From our point of view, the economic crisis is a manufactured one, but it doesn’t matter much. Once a war or economic crisis has been created, the next steps flow logically from what has occurred. The opening is there for the taking.
And she is surely playing her part. She is quoted as comparing the Euro-crisis to the ancients’ Gordian Knot and the need for concerted action as Alexander’s sword. “[It starts] with those at the centre [and then includes] the support of the international community probably channeled through the IMF.”
She is already focused on the channeling as well, explaining that both European and non-European countries will be asked for more money. “What is happening now is that conversations, contacts are taking place between the fund and its membership about the scale and the amount in which this could be brought to a conclusion,” according to an IMF spokesperson.
And so it builds. Suddenly the IMF, which the powers-that-be have already designated as a kind of world central bank, is in charge of collection efforts to save the EU. In fact, the EU doesn’t need salvaging, nor does the euro. If both foundered and failed, the world would pause for a few moments and then go on.
Conclusion: But without a crisis there can be no further centralization. And without further centralization there can be no world government. And so it goes.
They could have never accomplished this without that scumbag obama pissing off China & Russia. I bet you my last box of ammo that China & Russia will be tickled pink to support the IMF’s introduction of a global currency and every Nation to be a contributor to bail out Europe. This will be the last straw for America, and martial law will be used to kill hundreds of thousands of patriotic defenders of freedom. Keep your ammo dry!
When you see Nato soldiers in the streets, killing your neighbors, will you finally wake the hell up?
The above was posted Friday evening, and what did I find this Saturday morning, continue reading below and you’ll know I was right.
Russia pledges billions in investment to help rescue the eurozone
Russia pledges billions in investment to help rescue the eurozone
Medvedev, left, offers help to Russia’s largest export market
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has pledged up to 20 billion euros of Russian investment to bolster the eurozone. But irregularities during recent elections in Russia were also on the agenda of an EU-Russia summit.
Speaking at the close of what was his final summit with the EU as Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev offered his solidarity with the bloc, saying Russia was willing to contribute to the rescue plan managed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for the struggling euro currency.
“We are ready to invest all financial means to back the European economy and the eurozone,” Medvedev said following talks with European leaders.
The EU must be “preserved as a powerful political and economic force … [and the euro] preserved as one of the most important reserve currencies,” he added. The EU is Russia’s biggest trading partner.
Although the president didn’t mention specific figures, his economic advisor, Arkady Dvorkovich, said earlier on Thursday Moscow was prepared to offer up to 20 billion euros ($26 billion). That figure was dependent on progress towards a 200-billion-euro boost for the IMF agreed by European Union leaders, Dvorkovich said.
EU states have until Monday to work out the details of a number of bilateral loans to the IMF which are to be used in efforts to stabilize the eurozone.
With 41 percent of Russia’s currency reserves held in the euro and half of all Russian external trade conducted with the EU, Russia’s interests in the survival of the euro are clear.
“Europe has a stake in Russia’s success as I believe Russia has a stake in Europe’s success,” European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso commented on Thursday. “We should strive for a comprehensive and broad agreement with ambitious trade and energy chapters.”
Russian protesters claimed the December 4 election was riggedIt wasn’t just economic concerns, however, which were on the agenda of the 28th EU-Russia summit in Brussels. Speaking at a press conference at the close of the summit, EU president Herman Van Rompuy said the bloc was troubled by reports of corruption in Russia’s recent elections.
“We are concerned by irregularities and lack of fairness … and we are concerned by the detention of protesters.”
Tens of thousands gathered in Moscow and other cities in Russia on Saturday denouncing the polls on December 4 as a farce. Van Rompuy noted, however, that EU leaders had had an “honest discussion” with the Russian president. He went on to praise the regime’s response to the weekend protests.
“In contrast, the recent large demonstrations were peaceful and the authorities in my view handled it very well,” he added.
On Wednesday the European Parliament called for Russia to hold a new round of “free and fair elections” and conduct investigations into any fraud claims. Medvedev declined to comment on the demands, but noted that his country’s legislature had “expressed indignation with the position of the European Parliament.”
Points of contention
No real progress was made during the summit over the issue of sanctions against Syria and Iran. Moscow has been blocking United Nations condemnation of the Syrian government’s deadly crackdown on anti-regime protests. Russia also opposes any further moves on Iran, whose nuclear program worries the West.
Medvedev opposes any further moves on Syria or IranThe two sides did, however, make progress on the steps needed to achieve visa-free travel between Russia and the EU.
“The task ahead of us is to fully implement the agreed common steps, which can lead to the opening of visa-waiver negotiations,” Commission President Barroso said.
On Tuesday, Russia struck an agreement with Poland on limited visa-free travel for inhabitants of the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, sandwiched between Lithuania and Poland.
Meanwhile trade between Russia and the EU is expected to grow further, with Russia expected to join the World Trade Organization on Friday following 18 years of negotiation.
The accession would offer “a myriad of new opportunities for trade, investment and global growth,” Van Rompuy said.

While we are raping the middle eastern Nations to force them into central banking, which supports the dollar as the reserve currency, the central bankers are hell bent on replacing the dollar’s reserve status with a new world currency, with Russia & China’s help, and when we lose the reserve status the dollar won’t be worth a dime. Out of chaos, ORDER. For the bankers that is. REPLACE YOUR DOLLARS WITH HARD SILVER, AND DO IT NOW. YOUR 401Ks WON’T BE WORTH A DIME EITHER. OUR GOVERNMENT IS IN KAHOOTS WITH THE GLOBAL BANKERS, AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK! WISE UP AND RISE UP AMERICA, WHILE YOU STILL CAN, OR BEND OVER AND KISS YOUR ASS GOODBYE!

Are you sure there are two competing sides in the American battle for freedom and liberty? Or are those two sides in the battle pushing towards the same end?
The progressive left in America is openly selling socialism now, openly selling Americans the notion that freedom doesn’t work. They are no longer operating in the shadows, but rather right up in your face. However, does the so-called “resistance” have any different end agenda? If they are selling “democracy,” they too are selling socialism! WAKE UP!
Our Founding Fathers did not form a democracy and for very good reason. As Thomas Jefferson explained, Democracy is mob rule, wherein 51% of the people can vote to take away the rights of the other 49%. When 51% of Americans no longer pay income taxes, guess how they will vote and where does that leave the other 49%, the taxpayers?
The father of socialism, Karl Marx, told us that “Democracy is the road to socialism.” Fact is — pure democracy is socialism. “Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives.”
So, how can you tell the difference between false opposition and real resistance? For starters, anyone promoting “democracy” as opposed to our Founders “Constitutional Representative Republic” is false opposition. They may create the illusion of opposing socialism, but by promoting “democracy” they are in fact promoting socialism. If the word democracy comes out of their mouth every time they talk about America, they are NOT a “constitutional conservative.”
Marx referred to the common people as the proletariat. "The proletariat is that class in society which lives entirely from the sale of its labor power and does not draw profit from any kind of capital; whose weal and woe, whose life and death, whose sole existence depends on the demand for labor…” – In America, intended to be a classless society of individuals free to self-govern, this working class group was labeled the “middle class.”
Under communist, socialist, Marxist, fascist, otherwise known as totalitarian concepts, the working class or proletariat is to have so-called control over all aspects of society including the economy and property rights. Of course, they do not have actual control, because in order to seize control they must institute excessive government powers to control it all on their behalf.
How many times over the last few years have we heard politicos argue over whether our despotic Federal Government is communist or fascist? Are the people having this debate unaware of the fact that communism and fascism are the same thing?
Our Founding Fathers knew that totalitarianism under all of its modern progressive labels is the opposite of freedom. Freedom and liberty are based solely upon individual rights as opposed to the collective rights of any group.
Communism is fascism and fascism is communism. So why are people debating which despotic form of totalitarianism has gripped our nation? Are they ignorant of history, or are they a false opposition busy muddying the water for those who would otherwise become serious resisters to both?
America has four kinds of enemies today…
1. Foreign enemies that have had their sights on American sovereignty and supremacy since the day our Declaration of Independence was written in 1776.
2. An overt enemy within, a Fifth Column sympathetic to foreign enemies and operating within our own government, political parties, media, academia and entertainment industry.
3. A covert enemy operating as false opposition under the guise of resisters, with the same end agenda as the enemies above.
4. The useful idiot, who means well but is just as dangerous, dumbed down beyond the point of recognizing and understanding even the most fundamental truths. This is the proletariat…who know not, what they do.
All four types of enemies must be confronted in order to save our Constitutional Representative Republic.
In any society, the commoners, the workers, will greatly outnumber the elites, the business owner, the corporate executive, professionals, the investors and entrepreneurs. In a Constitutional Representative Republic, every individual has equal right of self-determination. But in a democracy, the mob will rule over the minority and the masses have the power to take away individual rights for the “greater good” of the collective community. This is also known as socialism and in its extreme, communism.
For over a hundred years, America has fed more than 80% of the nations in the world, as those nations experimented with varying forms and degrees of socialism or outright communism.
Today, that nation that once fed the world will soon no longer be able to feed itself.
Instead of spreading freedom and liberty around the globe so that nations could learn to one day feed themselves, America has adopted the concept of democracy and socialism from abroad. The very things our Founding Fathers separated from in 1776 now have a death grip on America a brief 235 years later.
In terms of political ideologies and government design, at the extreme left is communism/fascism – and at the extreme right is total freedom, also known as anarchy, or a completely lawless society.
America has the perfect balance for a maximum degree of individual freedom and liberty within the boundaries of an organized and civilized society — a Constitutional Representative Republic, if we can find a way to keep it.
A Constitutional Representative Republic is a form of self-governance.
This concept begins with individual rights, under Natural Law, the Laws of Nature, known as The Law of Nations, in which each individual has the freedom and liberty to govern their own lives.
That idea is followed by the design for a government system of, by and for the people, which is very limited in scope and power to the functions, assigned it by the people and their sovereign states, via the U.S. Constitution.
The U.S. Constitution is not an enumeration of the people’s rights. It is a compact (or contract) between the people, the states and our Federal Government, assigning certain specific and limited powers to the Federal Government for benefit of the people and the states.
Our Bill of Rights is not an enumeration of the people’s rights. It is a list of protections for the people and their states, against the eventuality of a bloated and overbearing Federal Government which begins to act at odds with its people and their states.
The greatest threat to our Constitution and Representative Republic today is the sad fact that most Americans no longer know anything of their history. They are therefore, ill-equipped to protect the future of freedom and liberty.
Being forever vigilant requires knowing what we are to be forever vigilant about, and how to be forever vigilant. If you don’t know or respect the Constitution, you cannot protect the Constitution. If you don’t know your rights, you cannot protect your rights. If you know what to do but lack the intestinal fortitude to do it, then your nation is also doomed.
Who will save America?
It won’t be our foreign enemies, our enemies operating with our own government, media, academia and entertainment, our enemies running false opposition under the guise of a resistance, or even the useful idiots too dumbed down to know the vital difference between democracy and a Constitutional Representative Republic.
Combined, these four categories of enemies now make up a majority in America. It reminds me of a column I published in October of 2006, When 51-49 Becomes 49-51. The column warned of reaching the point of no return in America, when the proletariat not paying income taxes in America would outnumber American taxpayers, and forever thereafter, vote to enslave American taxpayers to support their notions of a greater good. There is no good on earth greater than freedom!
Democracy is socialism… It no longer requires any imagination to figure out what is happening in the systematic dismantling of America via Democratic Socialism, often referred to today as progressivism.
People, who attack freedom and liberty in the name of a greater communal good, are not constitutionalists.
People, who attack economic freedom and liberty by attacking free-market capitalism, are not American.
While we’re at it, social justice is the exact opposite of real justice under the equal application of law. It picks favorites and uses the power of government to destroy some Americans for benefit of other Americans.
People selling democracy are selling socialism, plain and simple. They will deny it, because they either know it, or don’t know it. But the truth never changes despite the denials. Marx, Stalin, Lenin, Hitler – they all knew it. Many Americans don’t…
Will the Tea Party save this nation? Many in the Tea Party are false opposition, pretenders and profiteers. Many others simply don’t know any better. All are as dangerous to America as the progressive socialists on the left they claim to oppose.
Look no further than the current use of modern history text books used in American public schools today, written by lifelong communist Howard Zinn, who often referred to himself as a libertarian.
Zinn was a radical playwright, teacher, anti-war activist and self-proclaimed historian. He was also a member of the Communist Party who wrote history books now used in American public schools. The common thread in today’s libertarian movement is its anti-war stance and anti-war protesters like Adam Kokesh, Code Pink and MoveOn.org.
The point is this – the lines between friend and foe has been intentionally and purposefully blurred.
We are not just fighting the enemies we can all see, we are also fighting enemies who look and speak just like us. Between 2008 and 2010, even Obama and Pelosi learned Tea Party talking points.
It wasn’t honest constitutional conservatives who came up with the star fish insanity that all American patriots should work in twenty-thousand competing factions so that no real resistance could ever build across the nation. That notion was planted in the Tea Party movement by people intending to keep all of those competing factions divided and impotent.
Do you even have the intellectual honesty to ask yourself the right questions anymore?
Why are Romney, Bachmann, Paul and Huntsman running from a GOP debate in front of mega-capitalist Donald Trump? They can’t buy this kind of campaign opportunity for any amount of money. So why are these candidates running from Trump? They want the job of confronting the world’s most vicious enemies, but can’t face the Donald? Why didn’t they have the same opposition to debating in front of known leftist network progressives on numerous occasions? Why are these candidates friendlier towards leftist media personalities than successful businessman Donald Trump? What are they afraid of?
Corporations didn’t run this country into the ground, our federal government did. So, why are so-called libertarians masquerading as conservatives, attacking corporate America, where private sector employment is created?
Whose side are they really on, the private sector or the public sector? There is no in-between… Everyone opposes criminal activity. Nobody in their right mind would defend criminal enterprise – but the biggest criminal enterprise in America today is not corporate America, it is our Federal Government.
By the way, a constitutionalist saying that Article II isn’t worthy of utmost concern is akin to a Christian saying the New Testament isn’t worthy. If you don’t care about Article II, what parts of the Constitution do you care about?
This is the reality that must set in with every American patriot before they will be able to mount any real resistance to the ongoing dismantling of America.
An easy tell for friend or foe is if one promotes democracy vs. a Constitutional Representative Republic… attacks free-market capitalism or the runaway Federal Government dismantling America at breakneck speed…?
Before we can confront our many enemies, we must first know who they are. And then we must unite and fight together against all of them, or we will lose the battle for freedom and liberty and we will lose it very soon. That loss will come at a price unimaginable to most Americans.
Think it can’t happen here? Think it isn’t happening right in front of your eyes? WAKE UP PEOPLE!
Our enemies have a hundred-year head start and they are not only smart, they are devious.
Unless the American patriot is smarter and more committed to winning than our enemies, we will lose. We are already past the point of turning this thing around via national elections. Soon, we will be past the point of being able to save our own states, much less the nation.
WAKE UP! Rely on no one to educate you, educate yourself! Begin with understanding that passive resistance is not resistance at all. Resistance requires ACTION!
Then, unite with others who get it and stop wasting time and resources on people who will never get it, or get it too late.
Democracy is socialism, dummy. Talk of our “democracy” should throw up big red flags, no matter what room you are in at the time or who else is there with you.
To defeat socialism in America, you will have to defeat it in all its forms under all of its modern labels. You can’t do it alone, nobody can. Get in the game! Nobody can afford to sit this one out!

If anyone thinks they can return political power to the Right people, the first question I would ask them is just who is the right people? I have yet to find someone capable of explaining that in terms of reality, because there is such a massive differential in the people’s minds on the variations of political theory, and let’s not forget Mr. Williams so adamantly pointing out that democracy is nothing more than the majority tyrannizing the minority, but I guess it’s ok if our side wins. I have given this debate seven years of obsessive study and the only thing even remotely close to an acceptable form of government would be a total separation of the political classes. Forcing even one person to accept something that to them is detestable cannot be justified by anyone but a liar. Forcing me to accept a liberal government is only going to produce a very pissed off dissident, who will do anything possible to get free of the force put over me. I can expect nothing less from my own preference if I am not going to be a liar. Ask yourself what is the difference between forcing a conservative to live under the authority of a liberal government, and forcing a liberal to live under a conservative government. This is insanity, and it has infected humanity for thousands of years.
Ask yourself just who has ever proved that separation of the classes will not work. Who the hell has ever tried it? What if America was broken up into political regions of one party governments and every person could choose which they wanted to be subject too? They could even try them all over time so they had the personal experience in addition to the political theory. The one thing that all governments would have in common is, your voting choice in this region is limited to people supporting this particular theory.
I must admit that this is the best Idea I have come up with, and it still has severe problems, such as the massive differential in the people’s comprehension of the different theories, and of course their depraved human nature.
I have only presented this problem to the reader for one reason, and that is to point out that Americans fighting Americans over who they want to be subjects of, is an undeniable admission of a defeated Nation. The international investment bankers have manipulated our intellect to their advantage, by focusing our rage on political theory instead of on them. Now I am, once again going to present the only possible way for America to ever return to sanity, prosperity, and a lawful republican form of government. KILL ALL OF THE INTERNATIONAL BANKERS AND CONFISCATE THEIR ASSETS FOR DISTRIBUTION TO THE NATIONS. I can just see your mouths hanging open in shock, but you still do not see anything wrong with us killing the innocent civilians of other nations, because you believed some scumbag politician’s claims that they did or would kill some of us because they hate our freedom.
My fellow American’s, as long as you are addicted to this mentality, you are hopelessly committed to being the BANKERS SLAVES, AND LOSING EVERYTHING YOU HOLD DEAR.

THE GREATEST SPEECH EVER MADE
"Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death!"
Colonial Williamsburg Foundation
To avoid interference from Lieutenant-Governor Dunmore and his Royal Marines, the Second Virginia Convention met March 20, 1775 inland at Richmond–in what is now called St. John's Church–instead of the Capitol in Williamsburg. Delegate Patrick Henry presented resolutions to raise a militia, and to put Virginia in a posture of defense. Henry's opponents urged caution and patience until the crown replied to Congress' latest petition for reconciliation.
On the 23rd, Henry presented a proposal to organize a volunteer company of cavalry or infantry in every Virginia county. By custom, Henry addressed himself to the Convention's president, Peyton Randolph of Williamsburg. Henry's words were not transcribed, but no one who heard them forgot their eloquence, or Henry's closing words: "Give me liberty, or give me death!"
Henry's first biographer, William Wirt of Maryland, was three-years-old in 1775. An assistant federal prosecutor in Aaron Burr's trial for treason at Richmond in 1807, and later attorney general of the United States, Wirt began to collect materials for the biography in 1808, nine years after Henry's death. From the recollections of men like Thomas Jefferson, Wirt reconstructed an account of Henry's life, including the remarks presented below.
Patrick Henry at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia
March 23, 1775.
MR. PRESIDENT: No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do, opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending²if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

THEY WOULD RATHER WE DIE IN THE CHAINS OF ECONOMIC SLAVERY TO THEIR MASTER'S, THE GLOBAL INVESTMENT BANKERS.
AN AMERICAN'S MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!
December 8th, 2011 by olddog
By Coach Dave Daubenmire
December 8, 2011
At the risk of being labeled a “Truther”, or a “Birther” or a “Conspiracy Theorist” I thought I would take the opportunity to share with you some observations that I have recently made.
I suppose I find myself in a few head-butting incidents every now and then because I don’t just take things at face value. Although I don’t know when it happened I have become one of those who questions almost everything I hear, especially when it comes from the media.
Having spent the past decade or so dancing in and out of the public eye I have become adept at reading the bias in the media. Usually, when I get a call from one of them it is because they are searching for someone to articulate a position on a particular issue and they know that they can count on me to give them a good sound-bite.
They are not on my side. I came to understand that years ago, but in their attempts to be “fair and balanced” they call on me to give the “Right-Wing-Wacko” position that their journalistic fairness requires them to display. Rarely do I get the opportunity to have a serious discussion with a qualified, veteran reporter. They are not really interested in what I have to say.
Like so much in the media, the leg-work is done by some recently-graduated-from-journalism-school stringer who has been assigned the weekly “moral issue” for publication. Invariably, whatever this wet-behind-the-ears reporter puts in the article will be quoted over and over again as the story circulates through shared media-sources and the blogosphere. Once printed, the statement can never be clarified nor retracted. Often, the statement is out-of-context and designed to make me look like the wacko the unbiased reporter believes me to be.
But, of course, there is no bias. They are merely repeating the “facts.”
I would hope that you can tell from my writings that I am a deep-thinking man. I read and analyze volumes of materials weekly. I often receive information from readers who want to make me aware of a particular issue…I read everything, but don’t believe everything I read. Much of what I know, and believe, I never share with others.
That’s what “objective” columnists do, eh?
Let me state up front that I am non-violent but understand others are violent, so I own guns. I love my country but do not trust the government. I respect our soldiers but do not support the wars. I am a proud Christian but ashamed of what passes as Christianity. I am a life-long educator but think public education is responsible for the condition of this country. I know it is safest to keep my mouth shut, but cowardly to do so.
So at the risk of alerting the TSA, the FBI, the IRS, Homeland Security, and the Muslim Brotherhood I want to state a conclusion that I have drawn.
The War on Terror is a fraud.
I don’t want to get into 9-1-1 theories, Dick Cheney, and the free-fall exhibited by the 3 buildings in New York. That research is for those far more qualified than me. But observation of where we are in 2011 makes me tilt my head sideways as I look at what has happened to freedom in America.
Benjamin Franklin is reported to have said, "He who would trade liberty for security, deserves neither liberty nor security."
I believe the threat of Islamic terror is real and that national security is the number one job of our government, but I’ll be damned if I want to sacrifice my freedom because of what some former cave-dwelling, camel-riding recent-arrival-in-the-21st-century-Muslim might do. I fail to see how fighting in Afghanistan makes me safer in the cornfields of Ohio.
This all came home to me as I was standing in line at the airport last week…watching the “cattle-low” as they bowed to the commands of the TSA agent who just last week was an assistant manger at Pizza Hut.“Take off your shoes…no liquids in the carry on…spread your legs and put your hands behind your head…wait for permission before moving forward.”As I stood there waiting my turn to have my rights violated I was hit with an epiphany.
“What a joke,” I thought to myself. “If a terrorist wanted to kill a bunch of people, he could easily blow up a bunch of folks while he waited in line to go through the scanner. The scanner is supposed to insure that there are no bombs that make it onto the airplane, but do nothing to protect those who are waiting in line to be scanned.” On this particular early-morning flight out of Columbus there must have been 300 people waiting in line to go through security. What a terrorism opportunity!
What would TSA and Homeland Security do if a bomb was detonated by someone waiting in line? What means of security currently prohibits this from happening? Why haven’t the “terrorists” thought of this? (I am sure they have.)
What if they simultaneously did it in six airport security-lines around America? Hasn’t the “government” considered that possibility? What are they doing to provide security as we go through security? Do we actually believe that the “terrorists” have to get on a plane too kill innocent Americans?
All of the security is designed to make the cattle feel that government is protecting us.
And what about football stadiums? You mean no ‘terrorist” has thought about blowing himself up in the middle of Section B of the Super Dome during the National Anthem? What about your local high school? What about simultaneous, coordinated attacks on six schools around the nation? If their purpose was to spread death and terror can you think of anything more terrifying to the average American parent? How would TSA and Homeland Security respond to that?
And didn’t the “terrorists” miss a great opportunity for mayhem on Black Friday? Can you image the carnage that would be left as result of some suicide-bomber hitting the target by lighting up like a Christmas tree those lined up outside of the local Target Store?
How about an IED inside our churches? If it is Christianity that they hate so badly why haven’t the ‘terrorists” planned some mega –explosions at a select group of mega-churches across the country?
Just look around. Do we really think that if those who masterminded the 9-1-1 attacks were smart enough to pull it off aren’t they wise inventive enough to see all of the vulnerable targets that you and I can see? Are we really safe because of wire-taps, airport strip-searches, and the supposed-Herculean efforts of the Department of Homeland Insecurity?
When will we awaken to the fact that those who make a living off of the “war on terror” are depending on keeping us terrified?
NOTE TO ALL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES: I am not a terrorist, have no interest in killing innocent Americans, and am not interested in an armed conflict with the government. But the fact remains, I am more concerned about a black government vehicle pulling up in front of my house in the middle of the night than I am of Abdullah Appleseed blowing up a plane that I am on.
Billions of dollars are being spent at the airports to protect us from bombers in burkas, while much easier, softer, more devastating targets remain wide open to a lethal assault.
Funny isn’t it. The Department of Homeland Security has made no secret of the fact that they consider God-fearing men like me to be a greater threat to America than some terrorist named Obama Bin Lying and his henchmen.
Methinks something is amiss. Could it be possible that a “domestic terrorist attack” like the one’s I have just described could be exactly what the doctor ordered? Can you picture a scenario where the perpetrator is discovered to be an angry, right-wing, anti-government extremist…even though his remains no longer remain to be investigated or questioned?
Can’t you imagine the chaos and need for a government crackdown if one of these soft-targets is suddenly hit? Do you find it hard to believe that right-wing Christian-profiling by the Homeland
Security would suddenly be in vogue?
…and just who are all of those FEMA camps for?
I hate to think like this. I wish I wasn’t so cynical, but something doesn’t seem right. Terrorism can not destroy America.
But terror can. Am I the only one suspicious of what I see?
Do you think like a Christian or a humanist? Did the Founders really separate Church and State? Is Judicial tyranny ruining America? Check out these great teachings by the Coach

Thanks coach, I could have never said it better, but in addition to your commentary, I add this. America has become a nation of pansy asses whose only experience with violence is in sending their children to protect their life style in the banker’s preemptive wars. I am ashamed of the average American for intentionally ignoring the evidence kicking them in the ass. They are truly a bunch of sheep, while pretending to be an ostrich. The only thing that can save them is for someone with the balls to eliminate the Banking cartel.

Americans denied their First and Third amendment rights…
By Devon DB
Many in America still believe that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and that politicians, both Republican and Democrat alike, still hold that view and ensure that any and all legislation passed does not violate it. However, in today’s America, the Constitution is effectively a null and void document, nothing more than a symbol politicians pay lip service to.
The destruction of the Constitution began soon after 9/11 when the Patriot Act was pushed through Congress. In the heat of the moment it seemed as if the legislation was meant to protect us from terrorism, however it was later revealed that certain provisions blatantly violated the First, Fourth, and Sixth Amendments.  Interestingly enough, however, this didn’t stop the Senate from extending the Patriot Act earlier this year . In doing this, the government revealed just how much they respect the Constitution.
The next unconstitutional act to take place was under President Obama. Despite his “hope and change” rhetoric during the campaign, the only thing Obama changed was to further erode the Constitution and the power of checks and balances in government. Obama argued that the UN mandate gave him the right to bombard Libya, however the mandate has nothing to do with the fact that such an action was unconstitutional  as the power to declare war in held solely by Congress, not to mention the fact that it violated the War Powers Act. In carrying out this action, Obama did even more to expand the imperial presidency and showed his blatant hypocrisy as in 2007 he clearly stated that “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”  (emphasis added) However, in later months he would take this disregard of the Constitution to the extreme.
Just two months ago, Obama authorized the assassination of American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. While al-Awlaki was a member of Al Qaeda, he was still a US citizen at the time of his death  and thus he still had rights as a citizen, specifically the right to due process. This never occurred with al-Awlaki. Due to al-Awlaki’s assassination, it sets a legal precedent which allows the current and future Presidents to assassinate US citizens and withhold damning evidence- if there even is any- from the public under the guise of “national security.”
Today, we see due to the brutal crackdown of the Occupy Wall Street movement in Oakland, New York, and most recently Los Angeles, that Americans are being denied their First and Third amendment rights. Mayors are sending the message that if one decides to pose a serious challenge to the status quo, they will be violently crushed.
The Constitution is dead and with it the beliefs and ideals America was founded on have also passed away. The most terrifying occurrence, however, is that Americans are seeing their freedoms eroded are still in denial that a police state is slowly, but surely on its way.
There has never, (that I can find) been a more successful con than the grand experiment of a free America. When one takes the time to research the events that occurred as this Nation was being formed, one is faced with the biggest and most successful lie that has ever been told, and repeated until the whole world believes it. Imagine your shock to learn that America has never been free from political and legal ties to Great Britain, the bank of England, and the Vatican in Rome, and these ties have drained untold wealth from the United States, and opened the door to ever more tyrannical control of the federal government and the people of the United States. Now, these reptilian scumbags that control the whole world's currencies have assigned the people as debtors to their debt manipulated and worthless currency, making it impossible to ever be debt free and recover our industrial base. In a word, we have been conned out of our freedom by our own participation in their web of debt. Ladies and gentlemen, there is only one way back to prosperity and a controlled government, and that is the total elimination of these scumbags, and a global pact between Nations to forever forbid private central banking. Each Nation can issue their own currency and control it’s stability by following very simple rules of balancing their imports to their exports, and providing interest free loans to their people from the profits gained by investments. See http://CAFR1.com Each county should construct an education committee on this subject and educate the public on how it works. There is no reason for the whole damn world to go down in flames when the solution is so simple. Yes, it will be tough for a few years, but the gain is priceless. Do nothing, and die is your alternative, because these greedy bastards are going to manipulate the Nations into a global war that few will survive, if any!
You have been warned!

The "Free Syria Army" is literally an army of militant extremists, many drawn not from Syria's military ranks, but from the Muslim Brotherhood, carrying heavy weapons back and forth over the Turkish and Lebanese borders, funded, supported, and armed by the United States, Israel, and Turkey. The latest evidence confirming this comes in the form of a report out of the International Institute for Strategic Studies which clearly states that Syria's opposition is armed and prepared to drag Syria into more violence.
This report comes in sharp contrast to the propaganda fed via the corporate-media and the West's foreign ministers on a daily basis, where the violence is portrayed as one-sided, with Syria's President Bashar al-Assad "gunning down" throngs of peaceful, placard waving protesters. Just as in Libya where these so-called "peaceful protesters" turned out to be hordes of genocidal racist Al Qaeda mercenaries, led by big-oil representatives, fighting their cause upon a verified pack of lies, so too is Syria's "pro-democracy" movement which is slowly being revealed as yet another militant brand of extremists long cultivated by Anglo-American intelligence agencies, whose leadership is harbored in London and Washington and their foot soldiers supplied a steady stream of covert military support and overt rhetorical support throughout the compromised corporate media.
The unrest in Syria from the beginning was entirely backed by Western corporate-financier interests and part of a long-planned agenda for region-wide regime change. Syria has been slated for regime change since as early as 1991. In 2002, then US Under Secretary of State John Bolton added Syria to the growing "Axis of Evil." It would be later revealed that Bolton's threats against Syria manifested themselves as covert funding and support for opposition groups inside of Syria spanning both the Bush and Obama administrations.
In an April 2011 CNN article, acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner stated, "We're not working to undermine that [Syrian] government. What we are trying to do in Syria, through our civil society support, is to build the kind of democratic institutions, frankly, that we're trying to do in countries around the globe. What's different, I think, in this situation is that the Syrian government perceives this kind of assistance as a threat to its control over the Syrian people."
Toner's remarks came after the Washington Post released cables indicating the US has been funding Syrian opposition groups since at least 2005 and continued until today.
In an April AFP report, Michael Posner, the assistant US Secretary of State for Human Rights and Labor, stated that the "US government has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments." The report went on to explain that the US "organized training sessions for 5,000 activists in different parts of the world. A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there." Posner would add, "They went back and there's a ripple effect." That ripple effect of course is the "Arab Spring," and in Syria's case, the impetus for the current unrest threatening to unhinge the nation and invite in foreign intervention.
With planted "speculation" running through the corporate media that a recent explosion, amongst several other "incidents" in Iran, were the work of Western covert operations, and the Jerusalem Post all but admitting the entire Western-backed destabilization in Syria aims not at ushering in "democracy" or upholding "human rights," but to weaken Iran by proxy, it is clear that everything within Wall Street and London's power is being done to provoke Iran. Iran has downplayed the recent explosion at their military base as an accident and has thus far maintained a persistent patience in the face of criminal provocations and overt acts of war by an alarmingly and increasingly depraved West.
It is quite clear that the stratagems spelled out in the corporate-funded Brookings Institute report "Which Path to Persia?" have been read and understood by both sides and that Iran realizes that any act of retaliation not expertly played, only gives the West what it has stated it wants – an excuse to go to war with the Islamic Republic. Should the public in Syria, Iran, and throughout the West also read "Which Path to Persia?" and realize that the only threat Iran and its allies pose to the West is toward the extraterritorial ambitions of Wall Street and London, perhaps a bloody, entirely unnecessary war can be avoided, and the first steps taken toward dismantling the parasitic corporate-financier oligarchy that has misled the world for the past several decades.
It’s about time the American flag waving emotional patriots wake up to the fact that our banker owned government has been manipulating their loyalty to America, and making deluded supporters of global tyranny out of them, while the naïve taxpayer foots the bill for their own eventual loss of everything they hold dear. This has been the most successful brain washing experiment ever fostered on humanity. Let the reader fully understand that the banker owned media industry has been manipulating your opinions since you were still pissing your pants, and they are masters at it. While they simultaneously badger you to accept different cultures as having every right to live and procreate anywhere they want and keep their own culture intact, they are making global racist out of you with their claims of genocide committed by other nations who they have also manipulated, with your money! And you wonder why so many Nations hate us! I’m seventy one years old and this crap has been going on long before I was born, and I am now convinced this Nation has never fought in a justified war. They have all been the result of Banker/government manipulation of the masses, for the soul purpose of consolidating their power over Nations and making obscene profits from it. All of this “we are hero’s” bullshit, is an admission of our stupidity from being so easily manipulated into becoming murderers of innocent people. WHEN WILL HUMANITY WAKE UP AND KILL THE INTERNATIONAL BANKING CARTEL, AND THE SCUMBAG POLITICIANS, INSTEAD OF EACH OTHER?

The enemies of truth, freedom, and justice are highly mobilized, well funded, and efficiently organized.
The institutional structures of power, whether local, national or global, are effective mechanisms through which the ruling groups of society establish and entrench their influence, build consensus among each other, brainwash and expand their control over the masses and society as a whole. Whether they take the form of think tanks, universities, governments, corporations, militaries, intelligence agencies, NGOs, media conglomerates, international organizations, philanthropic foundations, they are institutions of control and conquest.
Whether that conquest is ideological or physical, the effect is the same: the conquered are oppressed and repressed.
These institutions are financed through the global banking system of collusion between the private banks and quasi-governmental central banks, who control the money supply and value of the change in your pocket, which are in fact a highly concentrated group of institutions and individuals. Never in all of human history have so few controlled so much on such a global scale, nor have so many had so little on an equally global scale.
Never before in history have the mechanisms for absolute total global control and oppression been within such close reach. We are seeing the emergence of this 'new society' in which governments are increasingly imperialistic abroad and militaristic at home, as domestic police states are established under the guise of 'homeland security', sold on the pretense of protecting people from terrorists, but in actuality are designed to protect the powerful from the people.
Increasingly, civil rights and freedoms are being dismantled for the wider populations: countries and peoples all around the world are subjected to bombings, drone attacks from flying killer robots in the sky named "Predators", and high-tech military equipment is designed and used to more effectively kill and conquer poor people all around the globe.
In the emerging 'homeland security states', technology is being used to spy on people, all internet traffic monitored, phones tapped, cameras recording not only our images, but through biometrics they are categorizing and quantifying our specific individual faces and emotional responses. We are, increasingly, seeing the emergence of a hybrid nightmarish scenario of 'Brave New World' meets '1984.' Technology has largely facilitated the advances in these areas and has, for the first time in all of human history, made possible the notion of a truly global police state.
Yet… there is still hope.
The Technological Revolution has not only facilitated a more rapid and effective apparatus for the institutions of power to exploit in methods of oppression and control, but it has simultaneously facilitated the rapid and effective means through which more people than ever before in human history have access to and empowerment through information and communication on a truly global scale.
As a result of the Internet, the traditional institutions of power have lost their monopoly of control over information and communication.
The very same technological advances that make possible their methods of control and conquest are simultaneously making possible their eventual downfall and failure. While the powerful have the money and are highly centralized, the rest of the world increasingly have the means and remain highly decentralized. And while the powerful are few, the rest are many. The Internet and social media have become effective means through which people are able to empower themselves to struggle against and expose the institutions of power that seek to oppress and control them. Naturally, those same institutions seek to influence – whether overtly or covertly – those very same avenues of social media, they are still effective and available for the struggle for liberation from oppression.
Here at A NATION BEGUILED, we have been able to harness these new communications technologies BY PROVIDING THE PUBLIC WITH THE VERY BEST AUTHOR’S AND ARTICLES FROM A WIDE VARITY OF SOURCES’. We are committed to providing free and accessible information to the many in order to expose the few.
Our aim is to struggle against and expose the institutions of power, and to empower the people to take this endeavor into their own hands, digest it and forward it to their friends and family, in an effort to educate the masses of propagandized Americans.
Once one faces their ignorance, humiliation will produce an avenging spirit, and encourage the repressed to fight tyranny with their last breath. Freedom to live our life as we see fit is the last remaining secular principal worth dying for, and no government of any kind should have the power to oppress the people it was designed to protect.
The bottom line of A NATION BEGUILED is to encourage the lesser enabled in America to participate in this information war, and put their lack of intellect and abilities behind them by doing the same thing this old high-school drop out is doing, whether by a web presence , emailing, or both, as I am doing. All you need is a pissed off attitude, a computer, and the ability to discipline yourself to read constantly, and republish common sense articles. Who knows how many no-bodies will evolve into erudite writers.
Erudite: (having or showing great knowledge gained from study and reading.)

If there is a stain on the record of our forefathers, a dark hour in the earliest history of the American Colonies, it would be the hanging of the "witches" at Salem.
But that was a pinpoint in place and time–a brief lapse into hysteria. For the most part, our seventeenth century colonists were scrupulously fair, even in fear.
There was one group of people they feared with reason–a society, you might say, whose often insidious craft had claimed a multitude of victims, ever since the middle ages in Europe.
One group of people were hated and feared from Massachusetts Bay to Virginia. The Magistrate would not burn them at the stake although surely a great many of the colonists would have surely recommended such a solution. Our forefathers were baffled by them.
In the first place where did they come from? Of all who sailed from England to Plymouth in 1620, not one of them was aboard.
"VERMIN." That's what the Colonist called them. Parasites who fed on human misery, spreading sorrow and confusion wherever they went.
"DESTRUCTIVE." they were called.
And still they were permitted co-existence with the colonists. For a while, anyway. Of course there were colonial laws prohibiting the practice of their infamous craft. Somehow a way was always found around all those laws.
In 1641, Massachusetts Bay colony took a novel approach to the problem. The governors attempted to starve the "devils" out of existence through economic exclusion. They were denied wages, and thereby it was hoped that they would perish.
Four years later, Virginia followed the example of Massachusettes Bay and for a while it seemed that the dilema had been resolved.
It had not, somehow the parasites managed to survive, and the mere nearness of them made the colonists skin crawl.
In 1658, in Virginia, the final solution: Banishment; EXILE. The "treacherous ones" were cast out of the colony. At last, after decades of enduring the psychological gloom, the sun came out and the birds sang, and all was right with the world. And the elation continued for a generation.
I'm not sure why the Virginians eventually allowed the outcasts to return, but they did. In 1680 after twenty-two years, the despised ones were readmitted to the colony on the condition that they be subjected to the strictest surveillance.
How soon we forget!!
For indeed over the next half century or so, the imposed restrictions were slowly, quietly swept away. And those whose treachery had been feared since the middle ages ultimatly took their place in society.
You see, the "vermin" that once infested colonial America, the parasites who prayed on the misfortunes of their neighbors until finally they were officially banished from Virginia, those dreaded, despised, outcasts masters of confusion were lawyers.
