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

There is an interesting disconnect with some people when discussing the concept of global centralization. Naturally, the mind reels in horror at the very idea, because many of us know, deep down at our core, that centralization is the root of tyranny. We know that when absolute power is granted into the hands of an elite few over the lives of the masses, very bad things happen. No small group of people has ever shown itself trustworthy, rational, empathic or wise enough to handle such a responsibility. They ALWAYS screw it up, or, they deliberately take advantage of their extreme position of influence to force a particular ideology on everyone else.
This leads to resistance, resistance leads to sociopolitical crackdown and then great numbers of people are imprisoned, enslaved or even murdered. This leads to even more resistance until one of two possible outcomes emerges — chaos and revolution or complete totalitarianism and micro-managed collectivism.
There is no way around this eventual conflict. As long as the centralists continue to pursue total power, men and women will gather to fight them and the situation will escalate. The only conceivable way that this fight could be defused is if the elites stop doing what they do. If they suddenly become enlightened and realize the error of their ways, then perhaps we could escape the troubles unscathed. Or, if those same elites all happen to meet an abrupt end and their influence is neutralized, then the world might have a chance to adjust and adapt in a more organic fashion.
Unfortunately, there are people who refuse to believe that a fight is unavoidable. They desperately want to believe there is another way, and they will engage in an amazing display of mental gymnastics in order to justify this belief.
First, I think it is important to note that I have always argued that the globalists will eventually fail in their pursuit. I find that some folks out there misinterpret my position when I outline the strategies of globalists and they assume I am presenting global centralization as a “sine qua non.” I do not argue that the elites will win the fight, I only argue that there is no way to avoid the fight.
Those that want to know my views on why globalist defeat is a certainty can read my article The Reasons Why The Globalists Are Destined To Lose.
The rhetorical question always arises: “How could the globalists ever hope to secure dominance over the entire world; isn’t that an impossible task?”
I believe according to my knowledge of history and human psychology that it IS an impossible task, but that is NOT going to stop the globalists from trying.
This is what the cynics just don’t seem to grasp; we are dealing with a group of narcissistic psychopaths organized around a cult ideology and with nearly unlimited resources at their fingertips. These people think they are rising man-gods, like the Egyptian pharaohs of old. They cannot be persuaded through superior logic or emotional appeal. They will not be deterred by mass activism or peaceful redress. They only understand one thing — the force of arms and the usefulness of lies.
Such people are notorious for taking entire civilizations down with them rather than ceding their thrones. It is foolish to plan a response to them on the assumption that a fight can be avoided. When I say that the globalists are “destined to lose,” this is predicated on my understanding that a certain percentage of human beings will always have an inherent capacity for resistance to tyranny. The globalists will be defeated because there is no way to quantify every single threat to their utopian framework. As long as people continue to fight them, physically and with information, regardless of the personal cost, their weaknesses will be found and they will fall.
This will not be accomplished, however, without considerable sacrifice.
When I talk about “collapse”, I am talking about a process. Collapse is not an singular event, it is an ongoing series of events. The U.S. has, for example, been in the middle of a collapse since 2008. The end of this collapse will come when the final economic bubble propping up our system has burst and the process of rebuilding begins. The most important questions is, WHO will do the rebuilding? The globalists with their power agenda, or common people seeking freedom and prosperity?
I have outlined in numerous articles the reality that an ongoing destabilization of large portions of the global economic framework will be used by the elites as leverage to convince the public that greater centralization is necessary, including global economic management through the IMF and BIS, a global currency using the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights as a bridge and global governance through the United Nations or a similar body not yet developed. This plan is becoming more and more openly discussed by globalists within the mainstream media. It’s hardly a secret anymore.
Many people will undoubtedly support this centralization out of fear of instability. That said, many people will also refuse to support it.
Here is how I believe, according to historical precedence and the globalist’s own writings, that they will attempt to assert global centralization post-collapse and enforce compliance.
Resource Management And Distribution
As I point out in many of my articles on the necessity for localism, without ample food, water and shelter self-maintained by groups of like minded citizens, no resistance can be mounted against a centralizing force. If you cannot supply your own logistics, then you must resort to stealing them from the enemy. Obviously, it is less risky to supply yourself if possible.
Post-collapse, when rule of law in many places has broken down and resources can no longer be transferred safely from region to region, the name of the game will be control of necessities and the producers of necessities. This is also used by totalitarians when the danger of unrest is present. A prime example of this method in action was the Stalinist consolidation of the Soviet Union.
The fact is, successful rebellions in occupied nations tend to grow in rural surroundings. Cities are often strongholds for totalitarians because they offer more means of surveillance, a more passive population and, once taken over, they are easier to secure and defend. I call this the “green zone doctrine;” the use of locked down cities as pivot points to launch attacks on rural people.
Stalin used this very model, sending troops from controlled cities to plunder resources from outlying farming communities. He then stored these supplies for “redistribution;” the people deemed most useful to the regime were fed, the people deemed not useful or potential threats were not fed. In the end, Stalin killed off many potential rebels simply by denying them food production or food access.
The elites do not need to own every inch of ground in order to launch an effective campaign of martial law. All they need to do is own key cities through surveillance technology and troop presence, then use these cities as staging grounds to confiscate resources in surrounding areas from people they do not like. If you think the government would not pursue that kind of tactic in the U.S., I highly suggest you look into Executive Order 13603, signed by Barack Obama in 2012. This order gives the president authority during a “national emergency” to take any private property or resources if it is deemed “necessary to national defense.”
It should be noted that starvation as a weapon has been extremely useful for the elites in the past.
The Malaysian Model Of Control
If the elites are anything, they are rather predictable. This is because they have a habit of consistently using strategies that have worked for them before. In my article When The Elites Wage War On America, This Is How They Will Do It, I examine the writings of Council On Foreign Relations member Max Boot on methods for quelling insurgencies. In the U.S., insurgency is a given post-collapse. The only question is whether it will be a large insurgency or a small one.
I do not hold out much hope for most of the rest of the world in terms of generating a useful rebellion. Most citizens in Europe and Asia are unarmed and untrained. Any resistance in these regions will be very small and cell structured if it is going to survive.
The methods Max Boot describes tend toward larger threats to the establishment. Boot mentions specifically the great success by the British in Malaysia from 1948-1960 against highly effective communist guerillas and terrorists. This success can be attributed to several factors:
1) The British used large-scale concentration camps to separate production centers from rebel influence. These were massive camps surrounded by barbed wire fences and guard towers, primarily used to house farmers and other workers and their families. This stopped the guerillas from hiding among the working class and recruiting from them. This follows the “green zone doctrine” I described above.
2) The British implemented a sophisticated identification system for all Malaysian citizens including fingerprinting. They then set up numerous checkpoints across the country at which citizens had to produce their paperwork. Anyone who did not have their papers was held on suspicion of being an insurgent. The rebels in Malaysia attempted to counter this by forcefully taking over busy buildings and buses, then burning everyone’s IDs. This would not be a very effective tactic in a digitized world where identification is accomplished through advanced biometrics.
3) Instead of fielding massive lumbering military brigades in a useless effort to cover large stretches of ground, the British used spies and informants to locate rebel strongholds, then sent special forces units in to neutralize them. Again, they did not need to control every inch of ground; they used military assets wherever the rebels were, then left. Their goal was not to control a lot of ground, but to kill rebels. The British used considerable brutality in their efforts, including a mobile gallows that traveled the country, and the public display of rotting corpses to strike fear in the insurgency.
4) The political elites in Britain fought the psychological war by offering promises of peace and prosperity to the Malaysian commoners if they supported the effort against the insurgency. They did not necessarily need to follow through on these promises, all they needed to do was create a few examples of reward for cooperation, and sell this to the public in a convincing manner. Once enough of the population was in the hands of the British, the insurgency lost supply resources and also had to worry about informants.
Technology Grid For Tyranny
Malaysia was an example of a competent strategy to uproot insurgents, but there were also many failures and pitfalls. The elites are trying to mitigate any future unknown quantities when fighting against rebellions through the use of new technologies.
The green zone doctrine could only be successful today with the use of biometric surveillance. Restriction of movement could be accomplished, but only in cities with extensive surveillance grids. The insurgents of a post-collapse future would be hard pressed to infiltrate or exfiltrate from a green zone with currently available facial recognition, gait and walk recognition, retina and thumbprint scanning, etc. Facial recognition has even gone into the realm of thermal imaging; cameras can use the unique heat signature from blood vessels within the human face to identify a person from a relative distance. Make-up and prosthetics would not counter this. Thermal masking would be the only solution.
Beyond that, an insurgency would have to be technologically savvy. Cyber warfare would have to be integral to their methodology. This is not something any other rebellion in history has had to deal with.
An Uneducated And Bumbling Insurgency
The globalist’s strategy to trigger economic and social chaos, then lock down certain regions and offer centralization as a solution to the population, is far easier to accomplish when the opposition they face lacks insight, patience, planning and initiative.
The British were partially successful in Malaysia because the guerillas were ignorant of public perception. While they were effective and ruthless fighters, their viciousness resulted in lack of public support. Though wide public support is not needed for victory, it certainly helps.
Multiple revolutions against Stalin’s power, some of them very large, were put down because of poor planning. Rebels massed sizable forces in tight areas, such as a single mountain or mountain ranges. Stalin simply dropped poisonous gasses on insurgents that had put all their eggs in one basket and forgot to stockpile gas masks. It is vital to recognize that in a post-collapse world governments and elites may no longer be subject to public scrutiny, and are thus free to act as maliciously as they want. All contingencies have to be considered.
Rebels in the Soviet Union also had a bad habit of ignoring logistics. Many were armed with mismatched rifles and a rainbow selection of ammunition instead of arming all their men with the same rifle and the same ammo for redundancy. Rebellions have been lost in the past merely because the fighters armed with too wide an array of weapons ran out of enough ammo to feed any of them.
Insurgents have also historically suffered from an inability to strike the leadership centers of the empires they fought. Primarily because they did not know who the real leadership was. Only in our modern era do we have the information available to identify the elites and their organizations. Globalists are often very vocal today in media about who they are and what they want. This is why the elites seek to make the next insurgency the LAST insurgency. Never before have they been so vulnerable.
I believe the globalists will use their standard strategy of disinformation and division first to acquire centralization, but eventually they will turn to a Stalin/Malaysian model for control on the ground. I will have to save the specific counter-strategies to these tactics for another article. Some of them I probably cannot legally discuss at all. The most important thing to remember, though, is that the globalists’ job is harder than our job. They have to control people, property, resources, and mass psychology. They have thousands of variables to take into account, and thousands of situations that could go wrong.
All we have to worry about is our own local organization, our own moral compass, our own survival and removing the top globalists from the picture.

The Israelification of the American domestic police departments is a deliberate continuation and intensification of the American Domestic Police State since 9-11.
…by Jonas E. Alexis & Mark Dankof
Gordon Duff was again absolutely right when he declared in 2012 that
“Slowly, every police department in the United States, at the behest of the Department of Homeland Security [DHS], is being trained by Israeli groups. As part of this training, there is an increased move to use of military uniforms, armored vehicles, heavy weapons, illegal surveillance, lying to the people, press and courts and systematic interference in the electoral system…”
If this seems hocus pocus, hang in there. Listen to the Boston Globe back in 2011:
“Police chiefs from Newton, Framingham, and Belmont headed off last weekend for a weeklong counterterrorism seminar in Israel, funded by the Anti-Defamation League. They are joining a dozen other senior law enforcement officials from the Northeast to network and get first-hand advice from Israeli security experts.”
The Jerusalem Post confirmed the report. JINSA, the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, admitted in the same year that
“top level American police chiefs, sheriffs, and senior federal agents” were indeed trained in Israel.
Two years later, Israel National News again concurred that
“A delegation of law enforcement executives from the United States” was trained in Israel. The Times of Israel confirmed the report.
We are also told that the Israeli army “trained London Police in tactics and strategy during Gaza crisis” in 2014.
Even during the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2011, Max Blumenthal himself admitted that the US police force and other officials were trained in Israel. Blumenthal called the plan the “Israelification of America.”
The Jewish Virtual Library has an article entitled “U.S.-Israel Strategic Cooperation: Joint Police & Law Enforcement Training.” We learn:
“With the United States on constant terror alert since the events of September 11, 2001, American police and law enforcement officials are taking advantage of Israel’s expertise in various facets of counter-terrorism and first response to better protect the American people.
“In 2002, Los Angeles Police Department detective Ralph Morten visited Israel to receive training and advice on preparing security arrangements for large public gatherings. From lessons learned on his trip, Det. Morten prepared a new Homicide Bomber Prevention Protocol and was better able to secure the Academy Awards presentation.
“In January 2003, thirty-three senior U.S. law enforcement officials – from Washington, Chicago, Kansas City, Boston and Philadelphia – traveled to Israel to attend a meeting on “Law Enforcement in the Era of Global Terror.” The workshops helped build skills in identifying terrorist cells, enlisting public support for the fight against terrorism and coping with the aftermath of a terrorist attack…
“In September 2013, a special team of bomb squad members from cities along the U.S.-Mexico border travelled to Israel in an effort to improve techniques and tactics for dealing with illegal immigration and IED attacks.”
The Jerusalem Post again agreed with the report.
Obviously we have a situation here. We all know by now that Israel has spread covert and terrorist activities in much of the West and the Middle East. For example, the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir was a member of a terrorist organization called the Stern Gang that led to the assassination of British Resident Minister in the Middle East Lord Moyne in August 1944.
The fundamental question is this: Why have our domestic police departments been brainwashed in Israel? Didn’t Abu Ghraib teach us anything? Didn’t British journalist Robert Fisk write that “Abu Ghraib torture trail leads to Israel”?Did anyone enjoy sodomy at that place? How about raping boys in the same madhouse in front of their mothers? How about “a uniformed soldier receiving oral sex from a female prisoner, a government contractor engag[ing] in an act of sodomy with a male prisoner and scenes of forced masturbation, forced exhibition, and penetration involving phosphorous sticks and brooms”?
If those acts were morally repugnant, why again are we sending elected officials to be trained in a foreign land which has caused nothing but misery in the United States? More importantly, how would the Founding Fathers of America respond to this pernicious enterprise? Didn’t they unanimously declare that America should never be involved in foreign entanglements?
“Brother Netanyahu, thank you so much for treading on my terrorist work.”
After more than three years of political manipulation and covert warfare, what has been the result of all the training in Israel? Peace and harmony? Or chaos in major centers in America? What do we see in places like Dallas, Ferguson, Baltimore, etc.? Isn’t the Israeli regime actually killing two birds with one stone here? Aren’t they dividing and subjugating people in America through covert means? Aren’t they implicitly repeating what people like Louis Wirth did in major cities in America?
If pawns and thugs in the BLM movement suddenly realize that they are being manipulated, if all decent Americans find out that the police force and US officials were trained in Israel, there would be anger in America. And that anger obviously has the potential to produce unwanted and ugly consequences, such as violent reactions.
We are not proposing violent reactions. What we are proposing is the antithesis of violence. Our view is that the US and Israeli governments must act according to reason and the moral law and political order, not according to the dictates of essentially Talmudic dogmas,[ which are essentially anti-Logos and anti-Western.
If they cannot do that, then they have to know that they cannot fool the masses forever. Once the masses suddenly wake up from their dogmatic slumber, violent reaction will inevitably ensue, and we all hope and pray that it doesn’t come to that pivotal point.
He’s been named “the two-legged man who is winning the ass-kicking contest.”
We have seen how similar events have played out in history, most specifically during the Hep-Hep riots in 1819 in Germany. Once the mob and much of the middle class realized that they were economically being reduced to rubble and abject poverty through cheating and vices, and once they stumbled upon the real perpetrators, chaos loomed. E. Michael Jones writes,
“Police officers were beaten and thrown to the ground and a military unit which the police called for help was met with a hail of rocks. Ten of the rioters were arrested, and six of them held in jail. The mob then attacked the house of Theresie Huegelin, where the Jew Abraham Loeb Brueckner ran a junk shop.
“After breaking down the door of Brueckner’s shop, the mob smashed the store windows, as well as the windows on the second floor of the building. During the rioting, one of the protesters insulted the royal city commissioner by shouting ‘Hep-Hep’ in his face, and then laughing shouted tauntingly ‘arrest me’…
“The tumult grew so large on August 4 that the president of the council was forced to call in reinforcements. Signs of Jewish businesses were ripped down and trampled on. Finally, the rioters invaded the house of Moises Forchheimer. Forchheimer was not at home at the time, but his wife, who was, was forced to pay the rioters 60 pennies to get rid of them…
“Of the 16 men arrested for rioting in Frankfurt, 15 had either already declared bankruptcy or they were unemployed former soldiers, day laborers or street urchins, a group of people, in other words, who in the best of times were at the periphery of the economy and were being pushed into penury by the influx the lower class Jews who undercut their tenuous connection to the local economy.”
One of the main reasons for the Hep-Hep riot again was that the Jewish oligarchs began to cheat the system and sucked the blood out of the middle class. This was never an isolated case. Centuries earlier, we find the same phenomenon in Poland, most particularly during the 1600s. Jewish historiographer Heinrich Graetz declared that once the Jews began to immerse themselves in the study of the Talmud, wickedness again became the rule:
“A love of twisting, distorting, ingenious quibbling, and a foregone antipathy to what did not lie within their field of vision, constituted the character of the Polish Jews. Pride in their knowledge of the Talmud and a spirit of dogmatism attached even to the best rabbis, and undermined their moral sense…Integrity and right-mindedness they had lost as completely as simplicity and the sense of truth.
“The vulgar acquired the quibbling method of the schools, and employed it to outwit the less cunning. They found pleasure and a sort of triumphant delight in deception and cheating against members of their own race; cunning could not well be employed, because they were sharp-witted; but the non-Jewish world with which they came into contact experienced to its disadvantage the superiority of the Talmudical spirit of the Polish Jews.”
This energized an anti-Jewish spirit among the Poles, for they knew that they were being cheated. This quickly led to violence among the Gentiles, who in 1638 “slew 200 Jews, and destroyed several synagogues.”
Ten years later, Jews clung to the book of Zohar for Messianic revolution, and this again caused “bloody retribution,” during which Jews were slain.
Within the next three years, anti-Jewish resistance led again to a bloody war that took the lives of thousands of Jews, and caused many others to move to places like the Netherlands, Bohemia, Austria, Italy, and Hungary.
Wherever they went, however, they took the study of the Talmud with them, bearing the same attitudes towards Gentiles. “Far from giving up their own method in a foreign country,” Graetz said, “they demanded that all the world should be regulated by them, and they gained their point.”
In the same century, capitalism fell in the hands of the Jews. French historian Fernand Braudel called this “the ‘age’ of great Jewish merchants,” during which they were involved in “lucrative areas of commerce” such as piracy
“in which these Jewish merchants specialized. Questions of morality did not apply…Jewish merchants were the brains behind the brawn—financing, advising, and sometimes leading the Caribbean’s emerging fighting force: a ragtag crew of misfits of every nation that coalesced as the dreaded pirates of the Spanish Main.”
Eventually in the 1660s, “the pirate capital acquired a reputation as the world’s ‘wickedest city.’”
We want neither “the world’s wickedest city” nor violent reactions. The best way to avoid both detrimental acts is for the Powers That Be to submit their will to reason and abandon their covert and subversive activities. In other words, we are proposing a return to Logos.
This is actually a modus vivendi because Logos is what unites us all as human beings. In addition, since we are all creatures of Logos, then to act against reason and the moral universe is detrimental and therefore dangerous. As Israeli historians such as Benny Morris, Ilan Pappe and Zeev Sternhell have shown, the Israeli regime has been acting against reason since 1948, and it is irresponsible to allow the US police force to be trained in that region of the world.
What we can say is that decent police officers probably have no clue of what’s going on. They do not know that they are being manipulated. But one thing is for sure: the violent events we saw in Ferguson and more recently in Dallas actually distract people from focusing on the Israeli occupation, concentration camps in Gaza, and perpetual wars in the Middle East. What’s your assessment, Mark Dankof?
Mark Dankof: Jonas, I believe your overview of the nature of the problem of the increasing involvement of Israel in training domestic American police departments mirrors the dangers of Israeli involvement with the American National Security Establishment and its sixteen (16) agencies. Your overview, and the recent work of Dr. E. Michael Jones of Culture Wars in discussing the Jewish infiltration of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, provide a wealth of information on just how serious the implications of all of this are for the people of the United States.
It is noteworthy that the Mainstream Media (MSM) consortiums are discussing none of these developments. This is not accidental. Your work, that of Dr. Jones, and sources like Dr. Paul Craig Roberts and Dr. Philip Giraldi, ex-CIA Station Chief and Israeli critic at the Council for the National Interest, should cause every American of any political spectrum or skin hue to lose much sleep late at night.
In recent years, I have been sounding the alarm on this through my radio shows, TV guest appearances, and articles. I have urged Americans to consider the real track record of the Zionist State of Israel vis a vis the United States over many decades.
Some of these subjects have dealt with the
Lavon Affair; the Kennedy Assassination;
Israel’s purloining of nuclear raw materials for their weaponized Dimona operation at the NUMEC plant in Pennsylvania
after the death of Kennedy; the USS Liberty affair in 1967; the Jonathan Pollard spy case;
the PROMIS affair; Israel’s involvement in 9-11; the Rosen-Weissman AIPAC spy case and the tampering with that court case undertaken by then Congresswoman Jane Harman of California at the behest of Israeli intelligence, proven by an NSA wiretap and intercept; the Ben Ami Kadesh spy case;
which has resulted in both the illegal assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists in Iran at the behest of Israel (along with many other criminal acts over the years), and the bribing of key Zionist and Neo-Conservative tools in the American government to achieve the removal of the MEK from the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations.
In my now dated piece for Al Jazeerah entitled,
“Kitat Kohenut and the Israeli Police State in Amerrika,” much of what is discussed there has now been further developed by your work and that of Dr. Jones.
Now we add to all of this the clear record of the State of Israel in direct involvement in ethnic cleansing in Palestine, Gaza, and the Sabra and Shatila murders in southern Lebanon among the laundry list of criminal acts since the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in 1946, and the lunacy of facilitating the Zionist State’s involvement in training domestic American police departments comes into absolute focus.
I have just finished Taleeb Starkes’ fine perspective on
“Arguments Against the Race Grievance Mafia” for VT. Much of what he says I agree with. To that, I’d add that Dr. E. Michael Jones’ perspective on Ferguson and Black Lives Matter for Culture Wars and two You Tube videos would be essential additional ingredients in adding to Taleeb’s legitimate points and concerns. The Jones’ discussions on line may be accessed
here and here.
At the end of the day after ruminating about these matters and the implications, I conclude the following: 1) Jewish and Zionist manipulation of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, the recent tragedies like Ferguson and the Black Lives Matter phenomenon, and the skillful employment of their control of Mainstream Media (MSM) consortiums to do it, has an agenda attached to it.
That agenda involves pitting unsuspecting African-Americans and European-Americans against each other while both factions ignore how this Fifth Column has pitted them against each other to facilitate Jewish Talmudic Supremacy in the United States and the latter’s hijacking of our Federal Government, our Central Banking System, our Foreign Policy, our Educational Institutions, our NGOs, our Mainstream Media (MSM), and last-but-not-least our degenerate culture courtesy of the Frankfurt School and its Institute of Social Research.
All of this is to the absolute detriment of both African Americans and European Americans once both greatly influenced by Christianity in American culture and life. The increasing absence of the latter is evident in the rise of sexual perversion, family disintegration, violence, hatred, race baiting, and scapegoating on both sides.
2) The Israelification of the American domestic police departments is a deliberate continuation and intensification of the
American Domestic Police State since 9-11.
I said this a few years ago for The Oslo Times and Press TV among many other outlets on many occasions. Take a look at the
Missouri Information Action Center (MIAC) report of 2008 for earlier evidence of where we are heading.
It was proven that year that the Federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS),
the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL), and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), were developing an “American Domestic Terrorist Profile” for the Missouri State Police which stated that a disproportionate number of these dangerous people were believed to be found among many supporters of Pat Buchanan, Ron Paul, the National Rifle Association (NRA), and white males who go to Christian churches while opposing abortion-on-demand, gay marriage, globalist trade treaties, and American membership in NATO.
The report was withdrawn when it came to light. What has not been withdrawn, but increased is the ongoing Israelification of our domestic American police departments, our National Security apparatus, and the Zionist power and financial wherewithal to support subversive movements like Black Lives Matter, for reasons already discussed and chronicled everywhere from
Russia Insider to the Washington Times.
The Endgame is terrifying for all of us. We could be staring a Third World War and the final completion of the Domestic American Police State’s construction right in the face after the next Presidential Inauguration in January of 2017. Let African-Americans and European-Americans of good will recognize what has happened in this country, and band together in an absolutely cemented alliance to stop it. Catastrophe is at our very doorstep.
Alexis: Great assessment again, Mark. The good news for us is that, catastrophe or not, reason or Logos will triumph in the end. And because we are not blind to higher realities and metaphysics, because we submit our will to what Kant calls practical reason, the current regime is scared of people like us—and they should.
The god of the current regime is unbridled passion and appetite, lust, and ultimately Mammon. We are proposing the antithesis of all this. They will never like people like us, for we will continue to expose them for what they really are.
Moreover, if The Lord of the Rings teaches us anything, it is that patience is an ethical medicine. Frodo quickly began to panic as soon as he realized that Gollum was a cunning creature that deserved to die.
Frodo came to that conclusion because he was frightened. He thought that a small creature like Gollum could alter what Hegel calls the “ultimate design…whose rationality is not that of a particular subject, but a divine and absolute reason.”
What Frodo didn’t realize was that Gollum was inexorably fulfilling what Hegel termed “the cunning of reason.” “I am frightened; and I do not feel any pity for Gollum,” said Frodo. “For now I am really afraid. What a pity that Bilbo did not stab that vile creature, when he had a chance…”
For Frodo, the death of Gollum would have been the end of his pain. Gandalf, being wiser than the lad who obviously could not see beyond the physical world, corrected Frodo and responded:
“Pity? It was Pity that stayed his hand. Pity, and Mercy: not to strike without need.” Gandalf accepted Frodo’s argument
that Gollum deserved to die, but added:
“Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends… There was more than one power at work, Frodo…It was the strangest event in the whole history of the Ring so far: Bilbo’s arrival just at the time, and putting his hand on it, blindly, in the dark…
“It had slipped from Isildur’s hand and betrayed him; then when a chance came it caught poor Deagol, and he was murdered; and after that Gollum, and it had devoured him. It could make no further use of him: he was too small and mean…[then] it abandoned Gollum. Only to be picked up by the most unlikely person imaginable: Bilbo from the Shire!
“Behind that there was something else at work, beyond any design of the Ring-maker. I can put it no plainer than by saying that Bilbo was meant to find the Ring, and not by its maker. In which case you also were meant to have it. And that may be an encouraging thought.
Frodo could not fully grasp Gandalf’s point—until, at last, the Ring was gone and the enemy was completely destroyed. It was destroyed not on Frodo’s terms, but in the fullness of time. Frodo obviously realized that if he had to play by the rule, he had to be patient and apply wisdom.
The lesson for us here is that there are indeed powers that are beyond man’s reason and intellect in this world, but Logos will never act in a way that will contradict reason and intellect. This is why we can say with certainty that a movement that acts against reason is anti-Logos and therefore anti-humanity. That movement, as Hegel and Solzhenitsyn perceived, will be destroyed at the end of all things. This means that truth or Logos will prevail.
That indeed is an encouraging thought. But the simple question that every decent and reasonable person must answer is this: Do we have the moral and intellectual courage to follow the truth or Logos? As Solzhenitsyn put it,
“Let each man choose: will he remain a witting servant of the lies, or has the time come for him to stand straight
as an honest man, worthy of the respect of his children and contemporaries?”

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

It is important for everyone to understand that we are engaged in a process— a learning and fact-finding and research and legal process that is ongoing. Every day we learn more. Every day we connect dots that we didn’t know about before.
This necessarily gives the impression of two steps forward and one step back, because that is what it is. It’s a process of discovery. We don’t have a road map. We are obliged to go down many rabbit holes to find out where they go and if they connect and precisely how they connect.
In most cases the path isn’t just complex. It has been deliberately obscured to make it difficult and even nigh-unto impossible to unravel. There are cinch points in this process that resemble a tangled ball of yarn or a knotted necklace chain. It takes time, diligence, knowledge, and sometimes great perseverance to move past these points.
Nobody just automatically “knew” that our earthly estates had been probated when we were still children and that we had been declared “civilly dead” and that the State Bar Associations had taken over as “Administrators” of our accounts acting in behalf of the STATE OF WHICHEVER corporations that then claimed to be the Beneficial Owners of our property.
Who could even imagine all that? Perhaps a lawyer familiar with probate would glance at it and know immediately— but none of them told us, did they? That would undermine their usurped position of power over us. After all, we were born the General Executors of our own estates and it is only by mischaracterizing us as “incompetent wards of the STATE” that they get a handle with which to jerk us around and steal our property both public and private.
On top of the self-interest involved for members of the Bar, there has also been the very real fear that if people knew what was going on and knew what was being taken from them under color of law, they would rise up and murder lawyers and bankers by the bushel.
So mum has been the word. We have had to dope out every stinking detail of this fraud on our own and it has not been a speedy, easy, or straight forward process. Forgive us all those of you out there who are used to being spoon-fed everything like Fast Food and who expect to have all the answers neatly and readily available, complete with action steps to take for a certain and complete and easily accessible remedy.
It doesn’t work that way. Not at all. Instead, what works in one state doesn’t work in another. The law of one county and its procedures and standards are different from the 3100 others. And every judge and every court in America is different, too. So on top of the difficulty in discerning and proving and acting upon the basics of the fraud itself, there is also the problem of addressing how all the various “State Bar Associations” administer it and how all the various “Counties” and “Boroughs” administer it.
Like a virus that got into our government Main Frame, it has morphed out of the root stem of the program and into a million variations, all of them serving the same basic purpose, but in a million permutations on the same basic themes. Yes, we are here to mischaracterize, control, and defraud you. Yes, it is going to be done along the same basic paths and guidelines. But no, it is not going to be exactly the same at all times and places and applications.
Nearly every day I have someone call me up and offer to ream me out because they tried some course of action I recommended two years ago and in their particular instance and situation it didn’t help.
A number of things must be brought to everyone’s attention— first of all, I (and everyone else involved) have learned a lot in the past two years, including information that has led to different understandings of basic facts. It therefore behooves everyone to follow along in the current thread to get the most up-to-date take on things.
Second, these rats are not stupid. They make their livings off this fraud. When we push through a gate and find a pathway of escape, they are close behind trying to close off that opportunity. They simply amend their operations, come up with a new “agency” rule or push through a new bit of code, and voila, the sheep are penned again.
Third, if you want to claim back the General Executorship of your own estate, which is what we need to do, all paths lead to the probate court and nowhere else. These vermin have defrauded you by misrepresenting who and what you are and by seizing control of your assets—including these ACCOUNTS which appear under your NAME via fraud upon the probate courts in the states and counties where you were born.
Fourth, now that these basics are known, it is time for you to contact every politician, judge, banker, lawyer, hospital administrator, and police officer involved in administering and profiting from this scam. Communication is the only way it can be resolved short of gibbeting.
A researcher into the use of “GLOSSA”— the all capital letters sign-language used to disguise our ESTATE accounts— took his copy of Black’s 4th Edition Law Dictionary and his copy of the 16th Edition of The Chicago Manual of Style— into the office of the local Magistrate Judge yesterday and placed the facts under his nose.
As a result, the Judge was clearly at a loss and forced to re-think the cases coming through his office and being submitted to him. As a further result, we found out that these cases are being formatted by the police departments—- agencies that have no obvious expertise in the law or grammar at all.
So today, that same researcher is taking his Dictionary and his Chicago Manual of Style to the Police Commissioner…..
This is the sort of action that is desperately needed. We cannot hope to correct this situation without it. These people have been doing these things on autopilot for so long that despite the fact that they are self-evidently fraudulent, their first impulse is to stare at you and mumble, “But, that’s the way we do it. That’s the way we have always done it….” and their second response when presented with contrary fact is to begin thinking.
That’s what we need— for everyone on both sides of the fence to start thinking and then acting accordingly.
Is it fraudulent and deceptive to represent the ACCOUNT of an estate trust as the NAME of the victim in a foreign and corrupt language, and then embed this sign language into an English text to promote further misunderstanding? Of course, it is.
Is it improper for any action at law or in Law or even administratively to be taken on the basis of such documents? Of course, it is.
Is it fraudulent to stand behind a piece of paper signed by someone else (your uninformed Mother) and deny your right to act as the General Executor of your own estate? And then while usurping your position as Executor to imprison you and steal you blind?
What do you think?
I am not here to tell anyone what to believe or not believe. Anyone who has stepped foot in one of their “courts” has more than enough experience to come to their own conclusions.
Instead, I am here to share what I have discovered in this long process of discovery, to share what other researchers have shared with me, and to encourage right-thinking and effective action to the extent possible.
The Accusers must themselves be accused. They must be shown the error of their ways and brought to correction. That is the only way that real progress can be made. They must be made to understand that what they are doing and the way they are operating is wrong. That cannot be done overnight or with the stroke of a pen, and neither I nor anything I can merely tell you is going to do the heavy-lifting for you.
You have to go buy your own reference books, see the truth for yourself, and then stomp on down to the office of the local magistrate judge…..and to the police commissioner….and to the mayor…..and to his general counsel….and to the local assemblyman…..and to the Governor of your state…..and……just keep going like the Energizer Bunny.
That’s what I do all day, every day, and that is what we all must do in order to properly engage the work that must be done. Sitting around thinking that someone else can do it or blaming them (or me) because what they have done or attempted to do has been insufficient or ineffective, is like blaming the horse pulling your cart out of a mud hole because the goodness of its strength and heart is not quite enough to turn the wheels.
Has it occurred to everyone yet, that you might have to get out of the cart and push for yourselves?
Not only do you have no cause to complain about the sufficiency or efficiency of the work others have pioneered, you have only the various officials and bureaucrats who are imposing upon and presuming upon you to blame.
So– in closing, please get your heads wrapped around the real problem and stop expecting “George” as in Washington, to do it all for you. He has been dead over 200 years and as for me, I am a retiree in Alaska— and I am already doing my best to resolve these issues.

The Two Are Not Two. They Are One.
by Anna Von Reitz
There are two factions— the UNITED STATES and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA — fronted by two competing international banking cartels, the primarily French-based IMF and the British/German/American Federal Reserve. They have both been preying upon us, innocent Third Parties, and plundering our country in the process. It is key to understand this.
It is also key to understand that these banks, no matter where they were chartered in the world, are all ultimately linked through the Vatican Bank— so at the end of the day, what appear to be two conflicting forces are in fact one—- like two fists slamming you from different directions, but all emanating out of one central power base. Similar to the apparent fight between the “Democrats” and “Republicans”, it is all for show and leads to the same results. It is the actual modus operandi of these manipulators to always present “a pillar” and “a post” and keep us running back and forth between them for their own profit.
Who are these Masters of Deceit? They are the Roman Pontiff’s Bill Collectors, the members of the Bar Associations and the politicians who they manipulate to enact “legislation” which then is used to empower them and give them coercive power over the masses.
In our case, the Pope is obligated to act as our Trustee and is bound by solemn oath to the Holy Mother Mary to do so. However, when he changes hats and becomes and acts as the Roman Pontiff, he has been preying upon us in the guise of Satan and offering us a “deal we cannot refuse” —because we don’t know that such a “deal” has ever been offered and therefore have no means to refuse it. He and his minions, the bankers and lawyers, have been laying surreptitious and improper claims against us and our earthly estates — and doing it with the appearance of our consent.
They claim that we have “voluntarily” and privately contracted with them to donate our estates to their organizations in exchange for benefits that we are then made to pay for ourselves by coercive force. They also use this false claim and presumption as the means to allege that our lands are forfeit to them.
We must see through all of this and bring effective action against it. The lynch-pins in their system are the politicians and the politicians can be brought to heel by bringing enough public opinion against them.They may not care what you say as individuals, but they will pay attention to whatever is going to advance or tank their reputations and political careers. Making it clear that this is the most important issue in America today will go a long way toward solving the problem.

Technocracy is a totalitarian system of economic tyranny, run by scientists and engineers, that is being implemented world wide. The most ‘efficient’ means of societal control is not legislative process, it is authoritarian control. This article clearly depicts the radical transformation of law enforcement. ⁃ TN Editor
Any police officer who shoots to kill is playing with fire.
In that split second of deciding whether to shoot and where to aim, that officer has appointed himself judge, jury and executioner over a fellow citizen. And when an officer fires a killing shot at a fellow citizen not once or twice but three and four and five times, he is no longer a guardian of the people but is acting as a paid assassin. In so doing, he has short-circuited a legal system that was long ago established to protect against such abuses by government agents.
These are hard words, I know, but hard times call for straight talking.
We’ve been dancing around the issue of police shootings for too long now, but we’re about to crash headlong into some harsh realities if we don’t do something to ward off disaster.
You’d better get ready.
It’s easy to get outraged when police wrongfully shoot children, old people and unarmed citizens watering their lawns or tending to autistic patients. It’s harder to rouse the public’s ire when the people getting shot and killed by police are suspected of criminal activities or armed with guns and knives. Yet both scenarios should be equally reprehensible to anyone who values human life, due process and the rule of law.
For instance, Paul O’Neal was shot in the back and killed by police as he fled after allegedly sideswiping a police car during a chase. The 18-year-old was suspected of stealing a car.
Korryn Gaines was shot and killed—and her 5-year-old son was shot—by police after Gaines resisted arrest for a traffic warrant and allegedly threatened to shoot police. Police first shot at Gaines and then opened fire when she reportedly shot back at them.
Loreal Tsingine was shot and killed by a police officerafter she approached him holding a small pair of medical scissors. The 27-year-old Native American woman was suspected of shoplifting.
None of these individuals will ever have the chance to stand trial, be found guilty or serve a sentence for their alleged crimes because a police officer—in a split second—had already tried them, found them guilty and sentenced them to death.
In every one of these scenarios, police could have resorted to less lethal tactics.
They could have attempted to de-escalate and defuse the situation.
They could have acted with reason and calculation instead of reacting with a killer instinct.
That police instead chose to fatally resolve these encounters by using their guns on fellow citizens speaks volumes about what is wrong with policing in America today, where police officers are being dressed in the trappings of war, drilled in the deadly art of combat, and trained to look upon “every individual they interact with as an armed threat and every situation as a deadly force encounter in the making.”
Contrast those three fatal police shootings with a police intervention that took place in my hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia.
On. Aug. 1, 2016, police responded to a call about a possible abduction of a 17-year-old girl. When they confronted the 46-year-old “suspect,” he reportedly “threw a trash can at them and then charged them with a knife.” When he shouted at them to “shoot me,” they evaded him. When they refused to fire their guns, he stabbed himself in the chest. The officers then tasered the man in order to subdue him.
So what’s the difference between the first three scenarios and the last, apart from the lack of overly aggressive policing or trigger-happy officers?
Ultimately, it comes down to training and accountability.
It’s the difference between police officers who rank their personal safety above everyone else’s and police officers who understand that their jobs are to serve and protect. It’s the difference between police trained to shoot to kill and police trained to resolve situations peacefully. Most of all, it’s the difference between police who believe the law is on their side and police who know that they will be held to account for their actions under the same law as everyone else.
Unfortunately, more and more police are being trained to view themselves as distinct from the citizenry, to view their authority as superior to the citizenry, and to view their lives as more precious than those of their citizen counterparts. Instead of being taught to see themselves as mediators and peacemakers whose lethal weapons are to be used as a last resort, they are being drilled into acting like gunmen with killer instincts who shoot to kill rather than merely incapacitate.
We’re approaching a breaking point.
This policing crisis is far more immediate and concerning than the government’s so-called war on terror or drugs.
So why isn’t more being done to address it?
As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, there’s too much money at stake, for one, and too much power.
Those responsible for this policing crisis are none other than the police unions that are helping police officers evade accountability for wrongdoing; the police academies that are teaching police officers that their lives are more valuable than the lives of those they serve; a corporate military sector that is making a killing by selling military-grade weapons, equipment, technology and tactical training to domestic police agencies; a political establishment that is dependent on campaign support and funding from the powerful police unions; and a police state that is transforming police officers into extensions of the military in order to extend its reach and power.
This is no longer a debate over good cops and bad cops.
It’s a tug-of-war between the constitutional republic America’s founders intended and the police state we are fast becoming.
As former Seattle police chief Norm Stamper recognizes, “Policing is broken. Tragically, it has been broken from the very beginning of the institution. It has evolved as a paramilitary, bureaucratic, organizational arrangement that distances police officers from the communities they’ve been sworn to protect and serve. When we have shooting after shooting after shooting that most people would define as at least questionable, it’s time to look, not just at a few bad apples, but the barrel. And I’m convinced that it is the barrel that is rotted.
So how do we fix what’s broken, stop the senseless shootings and bring about lasting reform?
For starters, stop with the scare tactics. In much the same way that American citizens are being cocooned in a climate of fear—fear of terrorism, fear of extremism, fear of each other—by a government that knows exactly which buttons to push in order to gain the public’s cooperation and compliance, police officers are also being indoctrinated with the psychology of fear.
“That isn’t the word used in law enforcement circles, of course,” explains law professor Seth Stoughton. “Vigilant, attentive, cautious, alert, or observant are the terms that appear most often in police publications. But make no mistake, officers don’t learn to be vigilant, attentive, cautious, alert, and observant just because it’s fun. They do so because they are afraid. Fear is ubiquitous in law enforcement… officers are constantly barraged with the message that that they should be afraid, that their survival depends on it.”
Writing for the Harvard Law Review, Stoughton continues:
From their earliest days in the academy, would-be officers are told that their prime objective, the proverbial “first rule of law enforcement,” is to go home at the end of every shift. But they are taught that they live in an intensely hostile world. A world that is, quite literally, gunning for them. As early as the first day of the police academy, the dangers officers face are depicted in graphic and heart-wrenching recordings that capture a fallen officer’s last moments. Death, they are told, is constantly a single, small misstep away.
Despite the propaganda being peddled by the government and police unions, police today experience less on-the-job fatalities than they ever have historically.
Second, level the playing field. Police are no more or less special than you or me. Their lives are no more valuable than any other citizen’s. Whether or not they wield a gun, police officers are public servants like all other government officials, which means that they work for us. They answer to us. We are their employers. While police are entitled to every protection afforded under the law, the same as any other citizen, they should not be afforded any special privileges. Most Americans, oblivious about their own rights, aren’t even aware that police officers have their own Law Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights, which protects police officers from being subjected to the kinds of debilitating indignities heaped upon the average citizen and grants police officers accused of a crime with special due process rights and privileges not afforded to the average citizen.
Third, require that police officers be trained in non-lethal tactics. According to the New York Times, a survey of 281 police agencies found that the average young officer received 58 hours of firearms training and 49 hours of defensive tactical training, but only eight hours of de-escalation training. In fact, “The training regimens at nearly all of the nation’s police academies continue to emphasize military-style exercises, including significant hours spent practicing drill, formation and saluting.” If police officers are taking classes in how to shoot, maim and kill, shouldn’t they also be required to take part in annual seminars teaching de-escalation techniques and educating them about how to respect their fellow citizens’ constitutional rights, especially under the First and Fourth Amendments?
Congressional legislation has been introduced to require that police officers be trained in non-lethal force, go through crisis intervention training to help them deal with the mentally ill, and use the lowest level of force possible when responding to a threat. Unfortunately, the police unions are powerful and the politicians are greedy, and it remains unlikely that any such legislation will be adopted in a major election year.
Fourth, ditch the quasi-military obsession. Police forces were never intended to be standing armies. Yet with police agencies dressing like the military in camouflage and armor, training with the military, using military weapons, riding around in armored vehicles, recruiting military veterans, and even boasting military titles, one would be hard pressed to distinguish between the two. Still, it’s our job to make sure that we can distinguish between the two, and that means keeping the police in their place as civilians—non-military citizens—who are entrusted with protecting our rights.
Fifth, demilitarize. There are many examples ofcountries where police are not armed and dangerous, and they are no worse off for it. Indeed, their crime rates are low and their police officers are trained to view every citizen as precious. For all of the talk among politicians about gun violence and the need to enact legislation to make it more difficult for Americans to acquire weapons, little is being done to demilitarize and de-weaponize police. Indeed, President Obama is actuallyreconsidering his limited ban on the flow of military gear to police. The problem is not that police are in any greater danger than before. Rather, by dressing as warriors, they are acting like warriors and increasing the danger inherent in every police encounter.
Sixth, do away with the police warrior mindset in favor of a guardian approach. As Stoughton explains, “Counterintuitively, the warrior mentality … makes policing less safe for both officers and civilians.” It also creates avoidable violence by insisting on deference and compliance and “increases the risk that other officers face in other encounters.” The guardian approach, however, “prioritizes service over crimefighting… it instructs officers that their interactions with community members must be more than legally justified, they must also be empowering, fair, respectful, and considerate. The guardian mindset emphasizes communication over commands, cooperation over compliance, and legitimacy over authority. And in the use-of-force context, the Guardian emphasizes patience and restraint over control, stability over action.”
Seventh, stop making taxpayers pay for police abuses. Some communities are trying to require police to carry their own professional liability insurance. The logic is that if police had to pay out of pocket for their own wrongdoing, they might be more cautious and less inclined to shoot first and ask questions later.
Eighth, stop relying on technology to fix what’s wrong with the country. The body cameras haven’t stopped the police shootings, and they won’t as long the cameras can be turned on and off at will while the footage remains inaccessible to the public. One North Carolina police department is even testing out a pilot machine learning system that “learns to spot risk factors for unprofessional conduct” and then recommend that officer for early intervention. It sounds a lot like a pre-crime program, only aimed at police officers, which sends up its own warning signals.
Ninth, take a deep breath because change takes time.As Stoughton warns, “Earning public trust will take decades and require rethinking how officers are trained as well as the legal and administrative standards used to review police violence. It will require changing the very culture of policing by reaffirming that policing must be done with a community, not to a community.”
Tenth, stop being busybodies and snitches.Overcriminalization has partially fueled the drive to “police” everything from kids walking to the playground alone and backyard chicken coops to front yard vegetable gardens. But let’s start taking some responsibility for our own communities and stop turning every minor incident into a reason to call the police.
Finally, support due process for everyone, not just the people in your circle. Remember that you no longer have to be poor, black or guilty to be treated like a criminal in America. All that is required is that you belong to the suspect class—a.k.a. the citizenry—of the American police state. As a de facto member of this so-called criminal class, every U.S. citizen is now guilty until proven innocent.
You could be the next person who gets shot by a police officer for moving the wrong way during a traffic stop, running the wrong way in the vicinity of a police officer, or defending yourself against a home invasion when thepolice show up at the wrong address in the middle of the night. People have been wrongfully shot and killed for these exact reasons.
So stop judging and start holding your government officials accountable to ensuring that every American is granted due process of law, which means that no one can be deprived of “life, liberty or property” by a government official without certain fair and legal procedures being followed.
There can be no justice in America when Americans are being killed, detained and robbed at gunpoint by government officials on the mere suspicion of wrongdoing.
Unfortunately, Americans have been so propagandized, politicized and polarized that many feel compelled to choose sides between defending the police at all costs or painting them as dangerously out-of-control. Nothing is ever that black and white, but there are a few things that we can be sure of: America is not a battlefield. American citizens are not enemy combatants. And police officers—no matter how courageous—are not soldiers.
Therein lies the problem: we’ve allowed the government to create an alternate reality in which freedom is secondary to security, and the rights of the citizenry are less important than the authority of the government. This way lies madness.
The longer we wait to burst the bubble on this false chimera, the harder it will be to return to a time when police were public servants and freedom actually meant something, and the greater the risks to both police officers and the rest of the citizenry.
Something must be done and soon.
The police state wants the us vs. them dichotomy. It wants us to turn each other in, distrust each other and be at each other’s throats, while it continues amassing power. It wants police officers who act like the military, and citizens who cower in fear. It wants a suspect society. It wants us to play by its rules instead of holding it accountable to the rule of law.
The best way to beat the police state: don’t play by their rules.
Make them play by ours instead.

Olddog says, this is Mike’s Masterpiece
By Michael Gaddy
Any semi-conscious individual with a modicum of intelligence would advise anyone caught up in an abusive relationship of any kind to sever all ties to the opprobrious partner. Yet, almost to a person, these same people would readily inform you that secession by a state is unlawful and should be met with the appropriate force and violence to prohibit such an irresponsible act on the part of a state and its sovereign people, regardless of the proclaimed reasons for the separation.
One of the most critical subjects which our founders faced both in the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 and the subsequent state ratification conventions was where did sovereignty reside, was it with the people, the states or the newly proposed government? In the vernacular of today, who would be the boss of whom?
It is of significant import that one view the wording of the Treaty of Paris when discussing this topic. In Article 1, the United States was acknowledged to be 13 “free, sovereign and independent states.”
But, where does the “ultimate sovereignty” sit in residence? Is it with the federal government, the state governments or with the people? Most of the colonists understood the belief in Great Britain, prevalent since 1640, that the ultimate sovereignty resided in Parliament. This concept is confirmed in the words of Sir William Blackstone in his description of Parliament, “the place where that absolute despotic power which in all governments reside somewhere, is intrusted by the constitutions of these kingdoms. The power and jurisdiction of Parliament” was so “transcendent and absolute that it cannot be confined… True it is that what Parliament doth, no authority upon Earth can undo.” Using this same paradigm, the majority of people in this country today, especially cops and judges, believe that our central government has the ultimate sovereignty, that nothing can undo its will and often point to Article VI Section II of our Constitution (Supremacy Clause) as the basis for confirmation of their beliefs. But to believe thusly is to completely dismiss a crucial element in why the colonists fought an eight-year war in order to gain their independence from such a Parliament.
We also have those who believe that true sovereignty, in some cases ultimate sovereignty, lies with the states. To believe that ultimate sovereignty lies with either the central or state governments is to discount the very concept and purpose of our Declaration of Independence.
Our basic organic document, The Declaration of Independence, is a document of secession, the proof of which can be found in its words and phrases. “dissolve the political bands, … assume among the powers of the earth, declare the causes which impel them to the separation … it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it and institute new government … it is their right, it is their duty to throw off such Government and to provide new Guards for their future security … that all political connection between them is and ought to be totally dissolved.”
To refuse to accept the Declaration of Independence as an article of secession is to call attention to one’s own ignorance. The demanded separation contained in our Declaration is a complete refutation of any government being the ultimate sovereign over the people.
Our founders, including those on both sides of the Federalist/Antifederalist divide, wrote and spoke often of the ultimate sovereignty of the individual. James Wilson of Pennsylvania was a delegate to the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 as well as a delegate to the Ratification Convention of his state. It was during that ratification debate James Wilson stated the following as to the forms of government that might be created.
“The United States may adopt any one of four different systems. They may become consolidated into one [National] government, in which the separate existence of the states shall be entirely absorbed. They may reject any plan of union or association and act as separate and unconnected states. They may form two or more confederacies. They may unite in one federal republic. Which of these systems ought to have been formed by the Convention? To support, with vigor, a single government over the whole extent of the United States would demand a system of the most unqualified and the most unremitted despotism.” (All emphasis mine)
Patrick Henry also addressed the issue of a consolidated government during the Virginia Ratification Convention when on June 5, 1788, Henry rose to speak and said this about the new proposed government.
“Here is a revolution as radical as that which separated us from Great Britain. It is radical in this transition; our rights and privileges are endangered, and the sovereignty of the states will be relinquished: And cannot we plainly see that this is actually the case?”
Thomas Jefferson and James Madison both stated the actual meaning of the Constitution was to be found in the debates at the various state ratification conventions. Reading through these debates one will find the descriptions and meanings of the proposed constitution are very well stated by those who advocated for ratification and were “selling” the constitution (Federalists) to those who had questions (Anti-federalists) or those who opposed ratification outright. The Federalists were most clear; the government would not be a national government, the powers “delegated” to the government would be few and limited; the states would at the very least have an equal say in the actions of the government. I list below just a sampling of what form of government was promised to the states and to the people.
“It is the opinion of the greatest writers, that a very extensive country cannot be governed on democratical principles, on any other plan than a confederation of a number of small republics, possessing all the powers of internal government but united in the management of their foreign and general concerns. It would not be difficult to prove, that anything short of despotism could not bind so great a country under one government; and under whatever plan you might, at first setting out, establish, it would issue in a despotism.” ~ George Bryan of Pennsylvania
In this one simple paragraph, George Bryan describes not only what was happening at the time of the ratification conventions but also perfectly describes how unconstitutional and tyrannical our government has become since its creation. Mr. Bryan mentions first “a very extensive country.” Please remember that at that time our “country” only contained the 13 original colonies. Then there is the mention of “democratical principles’ which is a reference to a democratic form of government which if you asked the common person on the street what form of government we have today, the majority would answer “a democracy.” If 13 colonies or states would be too large for a democracy, what makes anyone believe a democracy would work for 50 states? (57 if you believe our current chief magistrate)
Mr. Bryan then spoke to the proposition that all smaller parts of this confederacy (the states) would possess all the powers of “internal government.” Is that true today? Absolutely not! Bryan then states “nothing short of despotism” would issue from the implementation of any other form of government other than what the people were guaranteed would be created with the ratification of the constitution.
“Any law … of the United States, for securing to Congress more than a concurrent right with each state is usurpation and void.” ~ Theophilus Parsons, Massachusetts, 1788
“Any law,” says Mr. Parsons, is void if passed by Congress and does not provide a “concurrent right” to the states. I would begin to cite for you the hundreds of laws that should be void and unenforceable, but time and logistics of such a listing prohibit such.
“If the gentleman will attend, he will see this is a government for confederated states; that, consequently, it can not meddle where no power is given.” ~ Archibald Maclaine, North Carolina, 1788
Mr. Mcclaine states very clearly that the government cannot meddle where no power is given. Again, time and space do not permit an accurate listing of all of the laws passed by Congress that “meddle” where no such power was ever delegated by the states and the people to the central government. Of, course any such list would include the Affordable Care Act and the many variations of the Patriot Act.
“The State governments can put a veto, at any time, on the general government, by ceasing to continue the executive power.” ~ William Richardson Davie, North Carolina, 1788
Is what Mr. Davie so clearly stated in 1788 true today? If, not our government has been perverted, stolen and used to enslave us all. Are we any more subjects than were our founders in 1775 and who declared their grievances and separation in our most famous of founding documents?
John Adams predicted what would occur should the tenets and principles of what the people of their respective states were promised if these principles were violated and usurped by the central government.
“It is not even said in our Constitution that the People shall be guarranteed in a Free Republican Government. The Word is So loose and indeffinite that Successive Predominant Factions will put Glosses and Constructions upon it as different as light and darkness, and if ever there should be a Civil War which Heaven forbid, the conquering General in all his Tryumphs may establish a Military Despotism and yet call it a constitutional Republic as Napoleon has already Set him the Example. The only Effect of it that I could ever See, is to deceive the People: and this practice my heart abhors, my head disapproves, and my Tongue and my Pen have ever avoided.” (Spelling and capitalization in the original)
John Adams was most knowledgeable of history and he correctly predicted usurpations on the part of the government which included the assumption of powers the states and the people were guaranteed would never occur would eventually lead to a “civil war.” Adams also predicted a triumph in such a “civil war” by military forces of the central government would lead to a military despotism such as that of Napoleon. He also correctly predicted that such a government would continue to call itself a “constitutional republic.” This is precisely why the Pledge of Allegiance, written by an avowed socialist, is embraced by those who support a continuation of the Napoleonic constitutional republic mentioned by John Adams.
The type and form of government promised to the people and the states in their ratification conventions ceased to exist well before the election of Abraham Lincoln and the assumption of power by the so-called Radical Republicans. The election of Lincoln simply brought all of the simmering resentments to a full boil in 1860. With the assumption of power by the Lincolnites, the government promised 72 years prior to the people and the states had ceased to exist.
The people from Virginia who ratified the Constitution by a very slim margin in 1788, were still very suspicious of the intentions of those who would be assuming the mantle of power and possible future usurpations of the powers of the individual states by an overreaching central government. To this end, they placed the following in their ratification agreement.
“Do in the name and in behalf of the People of Virginia declare and make known that the powers granted under the Constitution being derived from the People of the United States may be resumed by them whensoever the same shall be perverted to their injury or oppression and that every power not granted thereby remains with them and at their will …”
Here, in plain and simple words is established the authority of the states and the people to withdraw from a government of their own creation “whensoever that government shall be perverted to their injury or oppression.” The wording also clearly indicates the people of the states are the ones to determine when that injury and oppression has occurred; not the Congress of that government, the executive of that government or the judicial element of that government.
The original ratification documents were presented and discussed during the first Convention of Secession in Virginia in which the people of Virginia, acting the same as those who had ratified the Constitution in 1788, at first voted to remain in the Union. It was the actions of Abraham Lincoln and his radical republicans who forced the acts of secession on Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Missouri.
The states who seceded, did so in an effort to recapture and retain the form of government promised to them 72 years prior. Yet, Lincoln chose to deal with a constitutional issue, not with the courts, mediation or reconciliation, but through the use of force and coercion, both of which comprise the very essence of tyranny.
The only path left to those who wish to oppose the overreach of government enforced tyranny is first nullification, as well outlined in Jefferson’s Kentucky Resolution, and should that fail, a full and complete withdrawal from the forces of tyranny: Secession.
Regardless of who is elected in November, the tyranny and oppression will continue to increase. Such is the natural course of history, for the form of government promised at the ratification conventions totally ceased to exist under the fusillade of bullets, bayonets, and cannons, delivered courtesy of Abraham Lincoln to the people of at least 12 states who only wanted the form of government their ancestors had been promised in 1787-1788.
Delaware Senator James Bayard III stated on the floor of the US Senate in 1861,
” … to warn gentlemen that the system of government adopted in 1787 is inconsistent with the prosecution of war for the subjection of the South: and yet you cannot execute the laws as you claim to do within the Confederate States without their entire conquest and subjugation. You must, if successful, convert, and it has been threatened by many leading papers, and at least one leading member of the administration, that you will convert this government into a single government, and absolve all the state lines. In answer to such a purpose, and as an all-sufficient objection to it, I give you the general truth enunciated by Mr. Wilson, that a government of that kind, to exist over the extent of the this country must be a system of the most unqualified and unremitting despotism.”
The government employees, media shills and useful idiots in academia and the common street idiot, all of whom would guarantee the right of an individual to escape an abusive relationship, would deny the same to the states and its citizens. The government that was promised to our ancestors has long since ceased to exist—-Nullification and Secession are our only options.
IN RIGHTFUL REBEL LIBERTY
Given the power and ability to do so, I would corral every born in America person in groups and not let them leave their chairs until they totally understood the significance of Mike’s words, whether they crapped on them selves or starved to death matters not to me. They could die in their chair or become a real American ready to die a horrible death before allowing this damnable government to continue.

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

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

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

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

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
NaturalNews) After witnessing how Reuters just blatantly cooked the presidential election polls this week to favor Clinton and how the mainstream media is so terrifyingly biased in favor of Clinton that the very foundation of democracy is now in crisis, it’s time to tell you something that perhaps a lot more people are finally ready to hear:
EVERYTHING IS RIGGED.
Every institution in America is sold out, corrupted and politically rigged to favor Big Government and Big Business. “America is a lost country,” explains Paul Craig Roberts. “The total corruption of every public and the private institution is complete. Nothing remains but tyranny. And lies. Endless lies.”
CNN, Reuters and the Associated Press are all now shameless promoters of every big lie across every sector of society, from vaccines and GMOs to elections and politics. The federal government itself is incapable of doing anything other than lying, and it has totally corrupted the entire realm of science by pulling the strings of funding via the National Institutes of Health and the NSF.
The FDA is entirely corrupt, as is the USDA. Both function now as little more than marketing propaganda pushers for Big Pharma and Big Biotech. Similarly, Google, Facebook and Twitter are all rigged, too, censoring the voices they don’t want anyone to hear while highlighting the establishment lies they wish to promote.
Here’s what “rigged” really means… the tools of tyranny
When I say “everything is rigged,” what does that mean, exactly?
• All “official sources” are ordered to constantly lie about everything, weaving illusions to push a chosen narrative rooted in fiction (from “there are no Islamic terrorists” to “carbon dioxide is poison to the planet”).
• All voices of reason and sanity are silenced. Only the most insane, irrational voices are allowed to be magnified through any media (including social media). This is also true across the sciences, where real science has been all but snuffed out by political agendas (biosludge, GMOs, glyphosate, mercury in dentistry, etc.).
• All facts are obliterated by propaganda. Facts have no place in any debate, and those who invoke facts are shamed and silenced (or even fired from their jobs, expelled from their schools or bullied into a state of suicide on social media). Anyone who invokes facts on things like the actual statistics of police shootings is told they are “part of the problem” because they have the “wrong attitude” about social justice.
• Every branch of government is weaponized against the people and used as an assault tool against political enemies who threaten the status quo. (IRS, FDA, FTC, DEA, EPA, USDA, etc.)
• All science is distorted into absurd, politically-motivated conclusions about everything the government wants to use to control the masses: Vaccines, climate change, GMOs, fluoride, flu shots, chemical agriculture, carbon dioxide and so on.
• Every branch of medicine is hijacked by globalist agendas to make sure medicine never makes anyone healthier, more alert or more cognitively capable of thinking for themselves.
• Every “news item” that’s reported from any official source is deliberately distorted to the point of insanity, turning many facts on their heads while attacking anyone who might offer something truly constructive to the world. (Such as reporting that Clinton was “cleared” by the FBI when, in fact, she was indicted by the very facts the FBI presented!)
• All voices of truth are silenced, then replaced by meaningless, distracting babble (Kardashians) or meaningless, tribal sports competitions (the Rio Olympics). The point is to dumb down the entire population to the point of cultural lunacy.
• Any true reports that contradict any official narrative are immediately censored. For example, radio host Michael Savage just got blocked by Facebook for posting a true story about an illegal alien who committed murder in America.
• Emotions are used as weapons to manipulate the masses. For example, when the mom of a Benghazi victim shares her grief with the world, she is ridiculed and shamed. But when a radical Muslim father who’s trying to bring Sharia Law to America attacks Trump by expressing his loss of his soldier son, the media turns him into an instant celebrity, praising his “courageous voice” for daring to speak out. The media hypocrisy is enough to make you vomit…
What exactly is rigged?
- The entire mainstream media
• Google search engine and Google News

• The origin of the universe (the official narrative is a laughable fairy tale) As a fantastic example of how everything is rigged, consider these paragraphs from this Breitbart.com news story published today:
Over the weekend and for the past few days since Khan spoke alongside his wife Ghazala Khan about their son, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed in Iraq in 2004, media-wide reporters, editors, producers, and anchors have tried to lay criticism on Trump over the matter. They thought they had a good one, a specific line of attack that pitted Trump against the military—and supposedly showed him as a big meanie racist in the process.
But, as Breitbart News showed on Monday midday, that clearly was not the case. Khizr Khan has all sorts of financial, legal, and political connections to the Clintons through his old law firm, the mega-D.C. firm Hogan Lovells LLP. That firm did Hillary Clinton’s taxes for years, starting when Khan still worked there involved in, according to his own website, matters “firm wide”—back in 2004. It also has represented, for years, the government of Saudi Arabia in the United States. Saudi Arabia, of course, is a Clinton Foundation donor which—along with the mega-bundlers of thousands upon thousands in political donations to both of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2016—plays right into the “Clinton Cash” narrative.
America‘s transformation into Communist China is nearly complete
If you’re pondering where all this is headed, look no further than Communist China, where all independent news has been outlawed by the state. Political prisoners across China have their organs harvested to enrich black market organ traders, and nearly one out of every three urban citizens is a secret spy who snitches on friends for the totalitarian communist government.
Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of Communist Chinese totalitarianism. She’s such a perfect fit for their disastrous model of human rights abuses, government corruption and systemic criminality that I’m surprised she doesn’t live in Beijing. If Clinton gets elected, America is gone forever, replaced by a criminal regime of totalitarians who violate the RICO Act as a matter of policy.
If this entire rigged system of biased media, Facebook censorship, Google search result manipulations and twisted science ends up putting America’s most terrifying political criminal into the White House, it’s lights out for the American we once knew. Almost immediately, the nation fractures into near Civil War, with calls for secession growing unstoppable as state after state seeks to escape the political wrath of an insane regime of D.C. criminals and tyrants.
We now live in two Americas: Half the country is tired of everything being rigged, and the other half can’t wait to be exploited by yet another crooked leftist LIAR who rigs everything
America is now essentially two nations. On one hand, we have the pro-Trump America, filled with people who are tired of being cheated, censored, punished, stolen from and lied to about everything under the sun. Donald Trump supporters are people who realize everything is rigged… and they’re demanding an end to the corruption and criminality of the fascist system under which we all suffer today.
Hillary Clinton supporters are people who are too busy chasing political rainbows to realize everything is rigged. They still believe the lies and the propaganda (the “hope and change” that never came, but is still promised by empty politicians). They’re living in fairy tale delusional worlds that have been woven into their gullible minds by the skillful social engineers of the radical left. These people still think the government cares about them… or that CNN only reports truthful news. They can’t wait to see another globalist in the White House because they are pathetic, weak-minded empty shells of non-consciousness who are wholly incapable of thinking for themselves.
These two camps of Americans can no longer coexist. They have almost nothing in common when it comes to knowledge, wisdom, ethics, morals or philosophy. One camp believes in the rule of law (Trump); the other camp believes that people in power should be above the law (Clinton). One camp believes in states’ rights and individual liberty (Trump) while the other camp believes in the consolidation of totalitarian power in the hands of a centralized, domineering government (Clinton). One camp believes in a level playing field, free market competition and rewarding innovation and hard work (Trump), while the other camp believes in free handouts, government “equality” mandates, and the ludicrous idea that “there should be no winners or losers in society.” (Clinton)
In other to try to win this election, the Clinton camp has already rigged EVERYTHING from the very start, including the coronation of Hillary, the scheduling of televised debates to minimize their viewership, the surrender of Bernie Sanders to the DNC machine, the mass organization of illegal voting schemes to make sure illegal aliens vote in November, and so much more. No doubt they’re also working extremely hard to rig the black box voting machines all across the country.
If you’re tired of everything being rigged, this November vote against the rigged system by voting for Donald Trump. This is truly your last chance to save America from being overthrown by a totalitarian regime of criminals who will crush every last iota of freedom and liberty in America.

What I am going to tell you all today is going to blow your minds— if they aren’t staggered already.
First, the rats under FDR pretended that our Trade Names, the Upper and Lower Case names we were taught to use in grade school styled like this: Felix Morton Morganthau —- were actually Foreign Situs Trusts belonging to the “Federal Government” doing business as the United States of America (Inc.) and represented franchises of that bankrupt private, mostly foreign owned governmental services corporation.
So, those entrusted to act as public servants instead acted as public hogs and placed false claims against the American nation-states and the American People. And our parents and grandparents were so trusting they didn’t catch on.
Year after year, they toiled away, paying debts for crooks—-debts they never owed. They didn’t even get a thank you for it. The perpetrators snuck off with their buddies in the Beltway and snickered to themselves and patted themselves on the back and sucked up and siphoned off the wealth of America while sending our young men and women off to war for profits—and not even profits for themselves, but profits for the perpetrators of these abuses.
So they stole our names and bankrupted them and now, they’ve lost all record of them.
You have to go back to court and do an adult name change from FELIX MORTON MORGANTHAU back to Felix Morton Morganthau.
Even worse, they’ve done the same thing with the States.
Where does this bunko stop? Where in the name of Jesus does it end?
You have to adopt your own given Name and then you have to seize upon and reconvey the bogus franchise trust NAMES, too. And Expatriate them. And bring suit against the rats in the proper venue.
And you have to do this to save yourselves and your country.
Do you hate this situation yet? Do you feel betrayed yet?
You’ve been subjected to the greatest fraud and identity theft in human history and the people you have relied upon to protect you and your interests and paid well to do so—- are the ones that have done this to you and yours.
If you aren’t righteously angry enough to get up off your couch and start talking and walking, too, then I don’t know what I can say to you.

If you think 9/11 is hard to accept for the dissonance crowd, try convincing them the entire government corporate system is a sham. Every thing we have been taught since childhood is a damn lie. School teachers are the dumbest assholes in America!!!!! AND, the media industry are a bunch of LIARS extraordinaire. The Pastors of our Churches have been whipped into line by the IRS. OUR medical and Medicine Industries are the scum of the earth. They all are under the Central Banking Cartels thumb. AND TOO STUPID TO SEE IT!!!
September 11th is the most polarizing event in modern world history. After looking at the aggregate of the accumulated facts and analysis that has emerged since the day itself in 2001, many people find it impossible to believe the official version of events, and since no serious government investigation is considering new evidence or professional analysis, people are left to decide for themselves if there is more to the story.
Due to the sheer volume of information that defies the government’s explanation of events, to believe the official story it now requires some sort of trick of the mind, or some sort of subconscious unwillingness to even entertain a contrary possibility. Regarding 9/11 truth, people will say the most absurdly illogical things, such as:
“I wouldn’t believe what you’re telling me, even if it were true.”
“I don’t need to look at the evidence.”
“I don’t want to know the truth, or I’d become too negative.”
“If that were true, someone would have leaked it by now.”
“That’s ridiculous, there is no way our government would harm us.”
“What makes you think we even deserve to know the truth?”
So, why is it that people have such a hard time even questioning the official version, and why is it difficult for them to even look at alternative information about the events of 9/11?
“At this point we have nine years of hard scientific evidence that disproves the government theory about what happened on September 11th, and yet people continue to be either oblivious to the fact that this information exists, or completely resistant to looking at this information. So the question becomes, why? Why is it that people have so much trouble hearing this information?
From my work I think we would be remiss not to look at the impact of trauma.” – Marti Hopper, Ph.D.
Trauma Based Mind Control Works
Firstly, it is critical to bring attention to the severity of trauma incurred when witnessing and processing an event of this magnitude. The nation, and much of the world, is still suffering from mass, collective PTSD, and as time goes by, our exposure to more acts of terror only amplify our attempts to bury this trauma within the psyche.
The darker and more horrifying the affront to our humanity, the more effective we are at burying it. The shock and awe theory of consciousness.
“Many people respond to these truths in a very deep way. Some have a visceral reaction, like they’ve been punched in the stomach. To begin to accept the possibility that the government was involved is like opening pandoras box. If you open the lid and peek in a little bit, it’s going to challenge some of your fundamental beliefs about the world.” – Robert Hopper, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist
Protecting Worldview Home
Psychologists highlight how the human mind has a tendency to look out for its own security, protecting itself from ideas that challenge core beliefs. When your worldview comes into serious doubt, it can feel like everything is crashing down, and that you’re being thrown into the great wide open with no security. Much as the body shifts into fight or flight mode when danger is clear and present, so too, the mind has tools of evasion from harm.
“When we hear information that contradicts our worldview, social psychologists call the resulting insecurity, ‘cognitive dissonance.’” – Frances Shure, M.A.
The mind tries to survive by allowing conflicting information to exist simultaneously, unconsciously choosing to bury that which causes the most disruption to the comfort of held beliefs.
In the case of 9/11, and other events where the media plays a critical role in creating a narrative of what happened, one cognition is always the official narrative which typically supports presently held beliefs about society, and the other cognition can be based on fact and evidence, but since it challenges to undermine the safety of such illusions, it is thusly over ridden.
“9/11 truth challenges the beliefs that our country protects us and keeps up safe, and that America is the good guy. When your beliefs are challenged, fear and anxiety are created. In response to that, our psychological defenses kick in, and they protect us from these emotions. Denial, which is probably the most primitive psychological defense is the one most likely to kick in when our beliefs are challenged.” – Robert Hopper, Ph.D
The result is disharmony, the collapse of a very important worldview and a source of psychological protection. What is left in its place is insecurity, vulnerability, and confusion, triggering a survival mechanism.
9/11 is a crime and a public trauma so grand, that for one to look deeply into it will require them to change or adjust at least some of their fundamental beliefs about the world. Cognitive dissonance, which can lead to the most bizarre reactions to controversially true information, is the mind’s way of hunkering down and weathering the storm in self-protection.
“The terror associated with our unstoppable annihilation creates a subconscious conflict or anxiety called cognitive dissonance. We try to cope with having to accept two contrary ideas. – Gary Vey
This is why the 9/11 issue is so important in our collective awakening. It is so big, and so well-documented that it can lead to a complete reevaluation of our entire worldview and social systems, and a huge leap forward in consciousness and awareness.
If we can think of our world view as being sort of our mental and emotional home, I think all of us would do just about anythign to defend our homes, defend our families…” – Dorothy Loring, M.A., Counseling Psychologist
Take a look at the following presentation looking at why our minds tend to shut down when confronted with the alternate view of 9/11:

EXCLUSIVE EXPOSED ORLANDO SHOOTING USED TO STRENGTHEN SANDY HOOK LAWSUIT
ARE GUN MANUFACTURERS INVOLVED IN DISARMING AMERICANS?
By Stephanie Sledge | The Government Rag
There are two more plots that go hand-in-hand brewing against the American People when it comes to more suppression and total tyranny on firearm freedoms. Plot one is the Firearm Risk Protection Act 2015 and the other is the pending Sandy Hook lawsuit against various gun manufacturers to attempt to hold them criminally responsible for murders by which their products are used. But, are the gun manufacturing owners involved in the plot? Hillary Clinton secretly met with several alleged Orlando Night Club shooting victims recently and several families have agreed to join the Sandy Hook lawsuit. Lawyers representing some of the Orlando victims have already had preliminary talks with those representing the Sandy Hook families.
WHAT EXACTLY IS THE SANDY HOOK LAWSUIT ABOUT?
TIMELINE – In January 2015, three years after the alleged mass murder at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, family members of some of the alleged dead victims filed a wrongful death suit against Remington Arms Company (the maker of the Bushmaster), the distributor (Camfour Holding, LLC), and Riverside Sales (the now-defunct East Windsor gun store).
The wrongful death suit argues Remington Arms as well as the other defendants “unscrupulously marketed and promoted the assaultive qualities and military uses of AR-15s to civilian purchasers.”
In December of 2015, all defendants asked Judge Bellis to throw out the lawsuit on the claim of ‘immunity’ under the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). According to the Act,
“To prohibit civil liability actions from being brought or continued against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, or importers of firearms
or ammunition for damages, injunctive or other relief resulting from the misuse of their products by others. <<NOTE: Oct. 26, 2005 – [S. 397]>>
A Brief History – Adam Lanza allegedly gunned-down 6 adults and 20 children using a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle (model XM15-E2S) at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012. Adam was also reportedly to have killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, with a .22 rifle prior to going to the elementary school that morning. It was also reported Nancy Lanza had purchased the AR-15 legally prior to the shooting from Riverside Sales.
The family members claim the AR-15 military style rifle should not have been made available to the public citing it is a military style weapon and is not suitable for civilian usage. The families also claim the gun maker and sellers knew civilians are considered unfit to operate the assault rifle and yet they continue to sell it to civilians while disregarding the dangers and threats the weapon poses.
Following the shooting, a campaign to ban military style high-powered weapons and accessories from the civilian populous has emerged again and the gun advocates have been on a deceptive marketing campaign to disarm America begging for more rules, regulations, codes, and laws to restrict the sale of these guns to just police or military. Remington, the primary defendant in the case filed to have the lawsuit dismissed. The Plaintiffs then ask the judge to not seal the gun maker’s records. Remington has argued to the judge the dangers of their company releasing trade secrets to the public due to this lawsuit.
According to Hartford Courant,
“Remington Arms, the principal defendant, has asked Bridgeport Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis to keep records it views as proprietary from being made public. The company’s court filing said that for competitive reasons, it does not want the public or its competitors to see the records. The company has also asked the judge to dismiss the suit.
Bellis previously ruled that the process of “discovery” would go forward even as she considered whether to dismiss the lawsuit against the manufacturer of the AR-15 rifle used in the slayings. The discovery process allows the plaintiffs’ lawyers to demand internal documents that could provide insight into how the gunmaker markets the AR-15 and to depose company executives. Lawyers said those depositions began earlier this month.
In unusually harsh language for a legal filing, the plaintiffs’ lawyers wrote: “The Remington Defendants ask the Court to order the plaintiffs to keep their secrets, in the name of preserving Remington’s competitive advantage among sellers of AR-15s. For plaintiffs, such conditions are repugnant.”
They also go on to say,
“Remington did not become the country’s leading seller of military weaponry to civilians by accident. It ascended to that position through its calculated marketing and pursuit of profit above all else. Plaintiffs lost family members, including children, in the service of that bottom line. Now Remington wants them to do more to protect its profitability. Plaintiffs will of course abide by whatever order the Court enters, but they will not by agreement help in a cover up of Remington’s marketing strategies or profit margins.”
Connecticut Superior Court Judge, Barbara Bellisa ruled the lawsuit could go forward; trial has been set for April 2018.
WHAT IS THE H.R. 1369 (113th): FIREARM RISK PROTECTION ACT OF 2015?
The Insurance banksters would like to have total control over American’s weapons including prohibiting the sale or purchase of a firearm without the purchaser first obtaining qualified liability insurance policy. This could become an economic hardship for many families and owners of weapons during a planned economic collapse. Individuals will be classified as criminals and face legal sanctions and punishments if they do not or cannot comply.
The Firearm Risk Protection Act of 2015 was introduced on May 21, 2015 by N.Y’s 12th Congressional District Democrat, Carolyn Maloney. The Act is just another bowl of ‘word salad’ which appears to be a deceptive way to disarm more Americans while demanding gun owners to carry liability insurance on their weapons. Any person who fails to comply can be criminalized and face fines up to $10000. Of course, the Act would exempt any federal, state, or local agencies from having to comply with obtaining liability insurance on the sale and transfer of every weapon. So, it is clear the banksters want their cut in owning your firearm and penalizing you if you do not comply. In addition, the banksters, their criminal mafia insurance monopolies, and of course the government would have yet another way to access your name and location of your weapons at any time as their newly created database grows. Waiting to be implemented, it could cost thousands of gun owners their weapons and freedoms if they cannot afford to purchase or maintain the insurance. However, the government, its representatives, and the agencies on a federal, state, and local level can get off scott-free with having an uninsured weapon.
Summary: The Firearm Risk Protection Act of 2015 Amends the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to: (1) prohibit the purchase or sale of a firearm unless the purchaser presents proof to the seller and the seller verifies that the purchaser is covered by a qualified liability insurance policy, and (2) require any person who purchases a firearm on or after this Act’s effective date to be covered by such a policy. Exempts the purchase or sale of a firearm for use by a federal, state, or local agency. Defines “qualified liability insurance policy” to mean a policy that: (1) provides liability insurance covering the purchaser specifically for losses resulting from use of the firearm while it is owned by the purchaser, and (2) is issued by an insurer licensed or authorized to provide the coverage by the state in which the purchaser resides.
Maloney makes these remarks in the House of Representatives on May 21, 2015:
“Mrs. CAROLYN B. MALONEY of New York. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to introduce the Firearm Risk Protection Act, innovative legislation to promote safe gun ownership. Too often, our communities are left looking for answers after horrific tragedies inflicted with dangerous firearms. A requirement to carry liability insurance is a market-based solution that would hold gun owners responsible for the risk their firearms present, and create incentives for responsible gun safety practices. The Firearm Risk Protection Act would harness the power of insurance markets to allow professional actuaries to determine the risk presented by each gun and gun owner. Just as with car insurance, higher-risk owners of firearms would face higher premiums, while responsible owners could qualify for reduced rates. As gun violence continues to inflict scars on American families and our communities, Congress should look for new ways to promote gun safety and prevent future tragedies. I hope my colleagues will join me to support this forward-thinking legislation.”
EXPOSED: ZIONIST CAROLYN B. MALONEY
A brief peek into Maloney’s history says a lot about who she is really interested in pleasing. I can guarantee, it is not the People, it is financial interests and the Jewish Agenda to Disarm America: Communism’s Secret Back Door. She has deep background ties to the banksters and wants to criminalize speech, eliminate guns, and enslave the American people. She is a snake slithering in the grass waiting to dupe and bite the People using manipulative and dirty tactics including participating in ways to market deceptive campaigns against the Civilian populous to make money off disarming the nation and promoting economic hardships, criminal sanctions, and plotting to help make the insurance companies money off the Second Amendment.
“Today, all across New York, all across the country, Americans are sitting in and standing up because we are tired of watching as each day 89 people die from gun violence,” said Congresswoman Maloney. “We are tired of being told that the solution to gun violence is more guns. We are tired of massacres like Orlando and Sandy Hook. And we are tired of tweets and prayers that do nothing to stop the bloodshed. Today, we are here to continue the movement that began on the House floor last week. We are sitting in to demand action. It is time for a vote to keep guns away from dangerous terror suspects, a vote to require background checks on all gun sales, a vote to stop gun trafficking, a vote to lift the ban on gun violence research, a vote on common sense. It’s time for gun violence to end.”
“Just one week after the historic sit-in on the House floor, today leaders in Congress will hold yet another historic event to urge our elected officials in the U.S. House of Representatives to hold a vote on bipartisan legislation that protects the rights of law-abiding Americans, keeps guns out of the wrong hands, and saves lives,” said former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Co-Founder of the gun violence prevention organization Americans for Responsible Solutions. “I want to thank Congresswoman Maloney for helping lead the fight against our nation’s gun violence crisis. Speaking is difficult for me. But I haven’t been silenced. And neither should the American people. Their Representatives must vote to make our communities safer.”

HOW DOES H.R. 1369 (113th): FIREARM RISK PROTECTION ACT OF 2015 TIE INTO THE SANDY HOOK LAWSUIT AGAINST THE GUN MANUFACTURERS?
There are a lot of questions to be asked and as everyone is diverted by the most current false-flag details or even ‘wooing’ the next in line on Facebook, the snakes slither in the grass to turn Civilian’s choice of weapons purchases into a tightly regulated ‘pay-up’ or do the time to keep and possess them.
The families of the Sandy Hook lawsuit argue the rifle allegedly used by shooter, Adam Lanza, should not have been entrusted to the general public…
“Shouldn’t have been entrusted to the general public because it is a military-style assault weapon that is unsuited for civilian use.”
“They say the gun companies knew—or should have known—about the high risks posed by the weapon, including the ability for a shooter to use it to inflict maximum casualties and serious injury.”
Now, in the ‘discovery phase’ this lawsuit is the first of its kind to challenge the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) after its enactment. According to the so-called experts on the fake news network, (CNN),
“This is precedent setting in the sense that, after PLCAA, this is the first case against a firearms manufacturer under a negligence theory that looks like it might make it to trial,” said Georgia State University law professor Timothy Lytton, who studies gun industry litigation.”
The attorney, Joshua Koskoff, representing the families of nine people who allegedly died in the attack said, “It was Remington’s choice to entrust the most notorious American killing machine to the public.” ( in 2014, for example, there were approximately 275 people killed with a rifle of any kind – hardly a killing machine).
He also denied claims that the lawsuit amounted to an attempt to ban assault weapons.
HERE IS HILLARY CLINTON & THE GUN HATING GANG?
Hillary and the gun-hating gang are right where we would expect them to be following the recent alleged mass murder at the Orlando Pulse Night Club – right at the front gate…
Following the recent alleged but yet completely shady shooting in Orlando, Hillary Clinton promptly met privately with family and friends of the alleged victims of the Pulse Night Club shooting. ‘Shady- meaning there are unanswered questions, signs of crisis actors and false reporting from the mainstream media. The details reported by the ‘Fake New Networks, (FOX, CNN, ABC, NBC, ETC) about the shooting itself is suspect and should be classified by the general populous as another suspicious shooting with gun-control as it’s primary marketing strategy. Just like the Tucson shooting, the Sandy Hook shooting, the Navy Yard shooting, the San Bernardino shooting, the Aurora Theatre shooting, and numerous others we have endured during the Obama Administration.
While in Orlando, Hillary uses the perfect mix of ‘word-salad’ to bring together people who are vulnerable and buy into the lies of ‘terrorism’ while labeling everything a ‘hate’ crime. As Hillary and the Gang continue to find more ways to disarm the nation, Gabrielle Giffords implements her ‘victim marketing scam’ aka Americans for Responsible Solutions anti-second amendment organization. Giffords, Maloney, Clinton are part of a malicious deception to disarm Americans coincident with the deliberate destruction and looting of the American financal system and collapse now in progress, not coincidently caused by same people funding this anti-American agenda..
Most Americans go throughout their day totally unaware of what really is happening around them. Most people are told through the fake news networks and Hollywood deception media the way the weather will be, the way the economy is going, what clothes to wear, what shoes to purchase, and what is happening around the world. The majority of Americans do not have a single clue as to the real matrix we live in. A real life version of the Truman Show. I like to refer to the nation as being ‘duped’ from the real pleasures of truth and freedom.
With all the recent shootings, there has been fuel poured on the already burning fire to incite a war between the blacks and the whites, the blacks and the police, the whites and the police, a total divide. Rumors surface after each alleged shooting and chatter starts among social media on their opinions as to what is really happening. This is great news considering Hillary Clinton has been promoting the racial divide in the nation and has been targeting the black women using the St. Louis Ferguson shooting planned event. It seems very peculiar when there is another shooting, Hillary, Giffords, and Maloney are on the trail…
Hillary’s presidential campaign route is right in alignment with all the recent shooting. Another reason for their BULLHORNS to be screaming and preaching VICTIMS, VICTIMS, VICTIMS… MORE GUN CONTROL… WE HAVE MORE VICTIMS….
REMINGTON & BUSHMASTER… ARE THE GUN MANUFACTURER OWNERS ACTUALLY SELLING US THE GUNS TO SHOOT OURSELVES WITH?
REMINGTON and BUSHMASTER have been specifically named in the Sandy Hook lawsuit. Clearly, without question, the primary agenda for the lawsuit is to challenge the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. Remington and Bushmaster are owned by Freedom Group (FG), which has a parent company called Cerberus Capital Management. Other companies FG owns are:

There are some specific shady actions that Cerberus Capital Management displayed directly following the Sandy Hook shooting.
WHY SHOULD WE TRUST THE GUN COMPANIES WHEN THEY ARE NOT STANDING AGAINST THE GUN HATERS?
As most people already know, following the Sandy Hook shooting, gun sales were on the rise due to Americans being threatened by the gun-control advocates to ban the civilian population of military-style high powered rifles, extended magazines, and other accessories.
What exactly gives the gun haters right to claim, “the gun maker and sellers knew civilians are considered unfit to operate the assault rifle” … Unfit? Really..?
Definition: Oxford Dictionary – UNFIT– (Of a person) not having the requisite qualities or skills to undertake something competently:
REMINGTON ARMS – is the manufacturer of the Bushmaster. Freedom Group (FG) is the owner of Remington Arms and is a subsidiary of the private equity firm known as Cerberus Capital Management. L.P, Est. 1992. They are well known for their takeover of struggling Chrysler, who was eventually rescued by the taxpayer. Zionist Stephen Feinberg is the co-founder & CEO.
In just a few days following the Sandy Hook shooting, Cerberus Capital Management made a stunning move to announce the sale of Freedom Group. As most Americans were distracted by the Hollywood movie of the Sandy Hook shooting playing out on the fake-media stage, Cerberus Capital Management’s executives, who own America’s largest gun company, was making arrangements to sell off Freedom Group after receiving a harsh phone call from the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, or CalSTRS, which has $750 million invested in the private equity firm. After just a few short hours of contemplating, Cerberus announced it was putting Freedom Group up for sale. How could this decision be made so soon after an event that brought gun sales and gun control to the forefront of every conversation in America.
Instead of taking the heat and fighting back (considering they know their products are not the reason for murder by guns) Cerberus took the coward way out and gave notice to the nation it wanted to remove itself from the heated gun debate uproar and announced it would sell Freedom Group, which made the weapon Adam Lanza allegedly used in the massacre.
According to PR NewsWire, Cerberus released the following statement publicly following the shooting at Newtown.
“We were shocked and deeply saddened by the events that took place at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012. We cannot comprehend the losses suffered by the families and friends of those killed by the unthinkable crimes committed that day. No words or actions can lessen the enormity of this event or make a dent in the pain that was inflicted on so many.”
“It is apparent that the Sandy Hook tragedy was a watershed event that has raised the national debate on gun control to an unprecedented level. The debate essentially focuses on the balance between public safety and the scope of the Constitutional rights under the Second Amendment. As a Firm, we are investors, not statesmen or policy makers. Our role is to make investments on behalf of our clients who are comprised of the pension plans of firemen, teachers, policemen and other municipal workers and unions, endowments, and other institutions and individuals. It is not our role to take positions, or attempt to shape or influence the gun control policy debate. That is the job of our federal and state legislators.
There are, however, actions that we as a firm can take. Accordingly, we have determined to immediately engage in a formal process to sell our investment in Freedom Group. We will retain a financial advisor to design and execute a process to sell our interests in Freedom Group, and we will then return that capital to our investors. We believe that this decision allows us to meet our obligations to the investors whose interests we are entrusted to protect without being drawn into the national debate that is more properly pursued by those with the formal charter and public responsibility to do so.”
However, they did take a position in the fierce gun control policy debate. Cerberus claims in their press release, “Our role is to make investments on behalf of our clients who are comprised of the pension plans of firemen, teachers, policemen and other municipal workers and unions, endowments, and other institutions and individuals.” This alone should make the reader question everything considering these false-flag shootings revolve around special medical ops which use crisis actors, firemen, police officers, teachers, municipal workers, local Masonic orders, etc. Do you see where this is going? However, as Cerberus is hiding under the table, knowing they are going to profit on both sides of the false-flag, Remington’s profits soared 52+ percent following the Newtown shooting as a direct result of this event as well as the national gun debate.
The surge in profits to Freedom Group came at the right time as Remington was preparing to replace 7.5+ million rifle triggers in a major recall resulting from a class action lawsuit. Interesting…
Plus, let’s not forget about the amount of money many states make from the sales of guns with licensing fees and permits and such. Wow, is this what Obama meant by we are a nation investing in the service industry?
Regardless, more than two-years after Cerberus made the announcement to sell Freedom Group after the phone call from the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS), they exited their investments in the gun manufacturer anyway. Then months later, CalSTRS made national headlines by “voting at its annual board meeting to divest the $193.1 billion pension fund from manufacturers of firearms that are illegal for sale in the state of California, according to Forbes.
Is could me safe to say hypothetically if a person wanted to make some money on the next false-flag… they might want to invest in the players… 🙂
There is quite a bit of information to digest when it comes to the Sandy Hook lawsuit, the Orlando shooting alleged victims families joining the lawsuit, the manufacturer’s response to the Sandy Hook shooting, and the introduction of the Firearms Risk Protection Act. Studying them all closely as well as the gun haters agenda, it is quite clear the Second Amendment is up for sale. The Firearms Risk Protection Act alone will profit billions to insurance companies making it mandatory gun owners have liability insurance on their weapons. Depending on ‘your risk assessment, you may either be considered a ‘low risk’ individual and pay lower rates or a ‘high risk’ person and pay higher rates. What they do not specify is how they determine what risk you are. I suppose all the tracking and databases are tied together now so who knows what lies ahead for American gun owners.
Mental health agenda is also tied into the gun control debates. Following the Sandy Hook shooting, the push for DNA testing and studies for the ongoing search for the ‘evil gene’ is underway. Obama is demanding the CDC receive millions of dollars in funding to study gun-violence and Hillary Clinton vows to keep the guns out of the hands of who she believes are dangerous individuals.
Cicero and countless others have reminded us “A nation can survive it fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.” Mahoney, Clinton, and Giffords wear the face of do-gooders, concerned women exercising the natural feminime desire to make things safe, but, in fact, they are liars. They “rot the soul of a nation” while working “secretely and unknown in the night” to undermine the pillars of the Constitution, tirelessly seeking and exploiting weak spots wherein to insert their treason. These women and many other men and women are not Americans , nor are they nationalist, rather they are globalist, Talmudists, serving a self fulfiling prophecy. The stateless one world government, a new world order and new religion of tyranny – dictated by the same kinds of personalities which destroyed the old world order. These chosen-ones fantasize about a new paradise of pyschopaths, bringing order out of chaos, but we expect in the end, once again, they will remain miserable, having nothing left to destroy but themselves.

When it comes to constitutional government, the whole left-right, conservative-liberal, Republican-Democrat, even Christian-secular paradigms are, for the most part, an illusion. Over most of the last century, conservatives and liberals, Republicans and Democrats, and Christians and secularists have collectively jettisoned constitutional government in favor of a Welfare State, a Warfare State, a Nanny State, and a Police State.
So-called conservative Republicans like to talk about “limited government,” but in reality Republican presidential administrations and Congresses have equaled or sometimes even surpassed Democrats in exploding the size and scope of government. Likewise, liberal Democrats like to talk about ending foreign wars and so-called free-trade deals that favor international corporations, but in reality Democrat presidential administrations and Congresses have done nothing to bring the troops home or dismantle job-killing “free-trade” deals. After all of the campaign rhetoric, both major parties in Washington, D.C., have become nothing more than water boys for the 1 percent donor class.
Over the past several decades, Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, Christians and secularists have, for the most part, supported the creation of the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, the indefinite detention sections of the NDAA, the militarization of our local and State law enforcement agencies, the draconian, liberty-killing, blatantly unconstitutional Department of Homeland Security (DHS), ubiquitous government spying of the American people, endless wars of aggression overseas, “the war on terror” at home, ad infinitum.
It seems that the vast majority of liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, secularists and Christians want bigger, more intrusive government. It is not just inner city blacks (who often vote Democrat) who are taking advantage of America’s monstrous welfare system, so are a huge percentage of whites (who often vote Republican) from suburbia. I will make an educated guess that one will find as many so-called Christians living on the government dole as those who profess no faith. Plus, if you think that only liberals and secularists are getting abortions, think again. Some studies indicate that over half of the people asking for abortions are professing Christians. The paradigms mentioned above are all but useless.
Look at how Democrat and Republican presidential candidates feel they must go kiss the rings of the Zionists in Tel Aviv; look at how they grovel and pander to the globalist elite at the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR), Trilateral Commission (TC), and Bilderbergs; and look at how quick they all are to go to war–and STAY at war.
When the Patriot Act was being rushed through Congress by G.W. Bush, I was living in a rather large metropolitan area in the southeast. There were over 100 Southern Baptist churches in my area. That’s JUST Southern Baptist churches. That doesn’t count all of the other brands of Baptist churches and all of the other denominations in town. Hundreds and hundreds of churches. Guess how many pastors joined together to oppose the Patriot Act. You’re looking at him, pal. In my town, it was me and the ACLU that stood in opposition to the passage of the Patriot Act. You read it right: the “conservative” Chuck Baldwin and the “liberal” ACLU. So much for labels. In fact, when it comes to Big Brother and the Warfare State, labels mean absolutely nothing.
This is what most people just don’t understand: the Constitution is neither a “conservative” nor “liberal” document. The Natural rights of man are neither “conservative” nor “liberal,” neither “Christian” nor “secular.” Our Declaration, Constitution, and Bill of Rights were meant to protect the Natural rights of ALL men. And when it comes to opposing America’s burgeoning Police State and endless wars of aggression, throw political and ideological labels away: they mean absolutely nothing.
I have often said that when it comes to voting for candidates for federal office, we should focus much more on whether one is a globalist or nationalist than whether they are conservative or liberal. And I hesitate to use the word “nationalist,” because too many people associate that word with the phony “American exceptionalism” philosophy that is used to foment most of these endless international wars that the U.S. engages in. I actually prefer to say one is either a globalist or an AMERICAN, because historic American ideology (until the Twentieth Century at least) considered foreign entanglements anathema.
However, since World War II, globalists have controlled every presidential administration of both parties (with the possible exceptions of John F. Kennedy’s and Ronald Reagan’s) and most of the U.S. Congresses. This reality has brought America to the brink of a Police State and World War III. And, again, neither Republican nor Democrat, conservative nor liberal, Christian nor secularist means diddlysquat when it comes to stopping this juggernaut.
Preventing the complete implementation of a Police State and the advent of World War III is going to take a consortium of strange bedfellows–such as what happened when Bob Barr (representing the ACLU) and I teamed up to oppose the Patriot Act.
For example, I find it incredible that the only people I’ve heard who are trying to warn the world of how close we are to global nuclear war are “progressives” (aka “liberals”). And they are warning that if Hillary Clinton (a “liberal”) is elected, World War III is almost inevitable. I remind you the following report is produced by progressives, NOT conservatives. Plus, at least some of the people who report for this organization would identify themselves as atheists or agnostics. And THEY are warning us about the liberal, Hillary Clinton.
Listen to what THEY say in this video report:
“The leading likes of the so-called progressive movement argue that it is the left’s duty to vote for this neocon warmonger. But the consequences of this strategy may well lead directly to nuclear war.
“Hillary Rodham Clinton is a Wall Street-backed warmonger whose potential election as President of the United States this November poses an existential threat, not just to Americans, but to all of humanity.
“As First Lady and then as Senator, she actively supported the US’s illegal wars of aggression abroad.”
“She not only admitted the US’s role in creating Al Qaeda:
“[Hillary Clinton speaking] ‘When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, we had this brilliant idea that we were gonna come to Pakistan and create a force of Mujahideen, equip them with stinger missiles and everything else to go after the Soviets inside Afghanistan.’
“But then, despite this admission, as Secretary of State, her support of the war on Libya and the jihadis in Syria directly led to the rise of ISIS and the migrant crisis in Europe.”
“She was the one who announced the US’s so-called Asia Pacific Pivot that has seen more US military forces being placed in the Asia Pacific as a direct military threat to China.”
“And she has stated in no uncertain terms that Russia and Iran will be militarily targeted in a Clinton Presidency and that the nuclear option is as always ‘on the table.’”
“Hillary Clinton is a neocon, a war hawk, a liar, and unindicted criminal and a Wall Street puppet. Why is it then, that those on the so-called progressive left, who would be warning against her if she had an ‘R’ next to her name, are instead lecturing other leftists that it is now their duty to fall in line and help her get elected?”
“[Michel Chossudovsky speaking] ‘In so many words, Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy stance is to “blow up the planet.” She has made statements to the effect that a first-strike nuclear attack against Russia or Iran is on the table, so that if she is in the White House she could in fact unleash the unspoken which is World War III. I think this is something we have to address, both in terms of analysis, but in terms of political choice. So that anybody who wants to blow up the planet is not progressive. Secondly, she has a criminal record. Not only in regards to the email scandal but also in relation to the Clinton Foundation which is involved in fraud, money laundering, political cronyism, etc. It is amply documented. So that, in effect, the choice of the American people is to elect a war criminal.’”
“It is no hyperbole to say that the election of Hillary Clinton as President this November would be one of the greatest tragedies in the history of the United States and perhaps the world. It is incumbent on people of all stripes, American and non-American, Republican and Democrat, progressive and libertarian, anarchists and those who have never thought about politics a day in their life to protest her nomination at the Democratic National Convention, work against her campaign for President, and divert the nightmare that is now coming into view.”
Watch the video: Hillary Clinton: A Threat To All Humanity
I have been trying to warn people for decades about the threat that the Clinton and Bush families pose to the future of the United States. In reality, the Clinton and Bush families are ONE CRIME FAMILY. They represent corruption, criminality, corporatism, cronyism, and global cannibalism to the nth degree. For twenty out of the last twenty-eight years, America has had either a Bush or a Clinton in the White House. And to the chagrin of Democrats who thought they were getting “change” with Barack Obama, for the past eight years, he has simply treaded water for the Bush/Clinton regime. And with Hillary winning the Democrat nomination, they are back. And as Ted and Heidi Cruz are ardent GW Bush disciples, had Ted won the GOP nomination, globalists would have had the presidency locked up. (Despite the allegations of some, I am still unconvinced that Donald Trump is a globalist; I tend to think he is not. However, I suspect Mike Pence might be a closet globalist. If Pence is a globalist, we could be looking at another Reagan/Bush scenario–and we all know what happened to Reagan, don’t we? But I will leave that subject for another column.)
Hillary (along with Bill, and GHW, and GW–and never forget to include Newt Gingrich among the globalist elite) is the globalists’ globalist. She is EVERYTHING the CFR, TC, and Bilderbergs want. And there is nothing that enriches globalists like war. The Bushes and Clintons have kept America at war for over two decades (and Obama did nothing to change it; in fact, he escalated it), but World War III is what the global gamemakers long for.
Let me pause here to encourage readers to purchase the book “War Is A Racket” by Major General Smedley Butler (USMC). Read this short book, and you will understand how the top 1 percent is enriched by war. Nothing enriches the elite like war. Nothing. And the bigger the war, the bigger the riches.
Find General Butler’s book in my online store here: War Is A Racket
A Hillary victory puts the Bush/Clinton Crime Family back in the White House. And let’s be clear: the two main goals of Hillary’s administration would be the full implementation of a Police State in America (including gun confiscation) and the advent of World War III. And right now, it seems that some progressives understand the danger more than many Christians and conservatives.
Again, throw the labels and the paradigms away. Hillary Clinton is a threat to all humanity.
P.S. As the DHS continues to escalate Police State training tactics throughout America’s law enforcement agencies, it means the chances of citizens being subjected to all kinds of bullying by police officers also escalates–not to mention the “shoot first, ask questions later” mentality that is growing exponentially among law enforcement personnel. It is very incumbent on citizens to have a good grasp of their constitutional rights when confronted by a policeman. In these days and times, knowing what to say and what not to say and what to do and what not to do can literally save your life.
My constitutional attorney son, who was a prosecutor before becoming a defense attorney, has put together an outstanding video that teaches people the do’s and dont’s when contacted by police, whether it be a traffic stop or something else. What Tim teaches will help citizens better protect liberty in their communities and will help policemen to be better peace officers. Yes, I recommend this video for honest lawmen as well.
The video is called “Police Contact: How To Respond.” I highly recommend this video to everyone. Order the DVD here.

This article is not meant to, or intended to be interpreted as a political endorsement, or lack thereof, of any political candidate. Family Security Matters takes no political point of view whatsoever.
It is the consolidation of power that engenders corruption, but it is indifference that sustains it.
Up until recently, our permanent, professional political class was largely content spending their entire careers living off of taxpayer revenues, while, at the same time, finding new ways of squandering our hard-earned cash on projects and services meant more to ensure their reelection than providing any tangible benefits to their constituents.
Concomitantly, they expanded the reach of the federal government, further limiting our liberty with laws designed to consolidate their power and justify their useless existence.
Apparently, life as public parasites was simply not enough. The new paradigm for the permanent, professional political class is public service for private profit.
While lulling the citizenry into complacency by maintaining the illusion of representative government, both Democrats and Republicans have used their positions for financial misconduct, exploited the legislative process for insider stock trading, betrayed American workers in the form of illegal immigration and questionable trade deals, and sold off national assets to multinational corporations and foreign governments.
To paraphrase President Theodore Roosevelt, when roll call is taken in Congress, the members don’t know whether to respond “Present” or “Not Guilty.”
In this election cycle, Donald Trump has forced the permanent political establishment out of the closet, exposing it to the voters for what it really is, an oligarchy; a small, mutually supportive group of politicians, media outlets and financiers that exercises control of the government for corrupt and selfish purposes.
Trump called out a Republican Party that never practiced the principles that it preached nor pursued the policies it proposed.
As Charles Krauthammer noted:
“GOP political leaders made promises of all kinds and received in return, during President Obama’s years, major electoral victories that gave them the House, the Senate, 12 new governorships and 30 state houses. Yet they didn’t deliver. Exit polls consistently showed that a majority of GOP primary voters (60 percent in some states) feel ‘betrayed’ by their leaders. Not just let down or disappointed. Betrayed. By RINOs who, corrupted by donors and lobbyists, sold out. Did they repeal Obamacare? No. Did they defund Planned Parenthood? No. Did they stop President Obama’s tax-and-spend hyperliberalism? No. Whether from incompetence or venality, they let Obama walk all over them.”
Because they hold largely the same views about government as Democrats, it comes as no surprise that anti-Trump, phony conservative Republicans experience no embarrassment endorsing Hillary Clinton’s Vice Presidential choice, Tim Kaine (D-VA).
The Republican leadership says that they will continue to “speak up in defense of our principles, in defense of not just our party’s principles, but our country’s principles”, which are, apparently, to support illegal immigration and Muslim migration. Given that a majority of Americans and an even greater percentage of Republican voters reject that viewpoint, exactly who do they represent? And are those principles they are defending or the aims of their wealthy patrons?
When Republicans talk about “limited government,” what they really mean is limiting voter choice, limiting the need to fulfill their campaign promises and limiting their responsibility to represent the views of those who placed them in office.
The 2016 election is not a contest between the Democrat and Republican ideologies, nor is it a choice among various approaches to address the nation’s problems, but something far more fundamental.
It is a battle between the entrenched power of the bipartisan political-media establishment versus the rights and liberties of the American people.
It is a conflict between those who want to adhere to the Constitution and the rule of law and the party leaders and a biased media, who wish to continue the practices of political expediency and crony capitalism.
It is a decadent system the political-media elite created and continues to nurture; one that benefits a few at the expense of the many.
It is time to return to a simple proposition, that the efficiency and effectiveness of government are directly dependent upon the trustworthiness of government officials as representatives and executors of the views and desires of the people.
A government separated from the people is like a house divided against itself – it cannot stand.

Note to the ruling elite and the masses who believe their staged news and propaganda. In fact, note to all humans including those who don’t believe mainstream media news. Whether you are brainwashed with government-controlled news and propaganda or a genuine truth seeker or researcher who perhaps may be falling for an occasional staged shooting going on today thinking they can’t all be fake (right?). Yes you (us)! All of us have an obligation to at least try to look at what is true completely outside of these “terrorism” and “shooting” narratives. And realize that none of us are above being fooled including myself.
That said, let’s consider some things that are un-debatable and hold true regardless of whether these events are real or not. Let’s pretend that 20 children ACTUALLY died at Sandy Hook and let’s pretend all of the shootings and events of the past 5 years are all 100% true. From Boston bombing, Umpqua College, Navy Yard, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara, Marysville, Santa Monica College, Virginia TV reporter “live shooting,” Charleston church shooting, Aurora Colorado theater, Orlando night club, Dallas sniper and on and on – let’s just give the mainstream media and the government a clean slate and idiotically accept their narrative as true blue. This is obviously almost unimaginable for truth seekers who know better but for the sake of this article let’s all pretend.
Okay, now that we’ve made every single one of the shootings of the past 5 years real, genuine and 100% true (for the sake of this fictional example) let’s see where that would leave us with. Let’s close our eyes and imagine now – real shootings are happening everywhere (in this fictional hypothetical world) and we can’t stop them. We see that the shooters amazingly seem to get their hands on AR-15s, AK-47s, all kinds of guns, gas masks and other military type equipment. Sometimes the weapons are obtained legally and mostly illegally. The shooters do their killing for all kinds of reasons and most of the time they die but not before leaving a manifesto to make it clear why they are doing what they did. Even in this fictional reality we are all trying to imagine, anyone can step back and see that the only beneficiary of ALL of these shooting events is … government. No one, not you or I or anyone who believes in mainstream media, not even anyone who is part of the mainstream media or government including Obama himself or anyone else can deny that the objective end result is that big government is the ONLY beneficiary of these events. We’ll talk more about this later.
In the meantime, here are 7 undeniable crystal clear facts that remain perfectly true and factual regardless of whether all of these events are fake, all are 100% real or whether the truth is somewhere in between. Since we all have an obligation to search for objectivity here they are now. Consider these facts and judge for yourself.
1 – Gun-free zones are death zones of defenseless people hoping to not be shot dead
Do yourself a favor and simply imagine 20 people in a room. Imagine one of them pulls out a gun to kill everyone and since none of them have any means of defending themselves they all die by being shot to the delight of the shooter. Now picture that same room of 20 people with the same killer attempting to shoot everyone, except in this second scenario most of the people in the room are armed for their own protection. How many people do you think will die in this case? More? All 20 as in scenario number 1? Less?
Anyone with a working brain knows deep down there is only one answer that is correct. I don’t even have to tell you what the answer is because everyone reading this knows what the answer is. Even the most ardent “gun control” brainwashed zombie knows the answer here. We could have 100 more mass shootings this week and the answer would still be the same. LESS people would die, not more, because one or all of the citizens will take out the gunman in seconds.
To fight and smear this objective factual logic, gun-control freaks, trolls and zombies try everything they can in an attempt to disprove this argument before they resort to name-calling and insults after failing to make their case. This is the reason why all the treasonous crisis actors (a group that is getting larger by the day), the politicians and ruling elite who hate humanity, along with their mass media all have to resort to emotion to get you to see this issue in a way that circumvents basic sound logic. The key thing to realize is that this question is a cut-and-dried mathematical question, not one that requires any emotion or application of values, beliefs, ethics and certainly not emotion. They all know that in the example I made above LESS people would die in a room full of gun-carrying responsible citizens, but they also know that if they can lie to you and lure you into choosing and believing a fallacy (that somehow being unarmed is safer for you) with emotion, then that ensures that government benefits from the event and eventually will have 100% power and control over you.
This and only this is why we see many of these crisis actor family members of supposed victims not only being worshiped by the media but made instant millionaires with massive donation campaigns often set up days PRIOR to the events themselves. The money coming in is so much that they are creating the bizarre scenario where if these shootings were actually real it would almost make heartless people who perhaps hate their own family members envy those involved wishing perhaps that it was THEIR family member who was actually killed in these events JUST so that they can collect on the apparently automated sympathy money train. Think about this, and the message being sent by these phony donation campaigns! And of course it doesn’t end there. These victims’ family members even get granted the opportunity to hang out with the President in the period following these false flag staged events. The money, the worship and the Presidential touring is like the “thank you” on behalf of the new world order. This entire scenario I’m describing sounds like a money-making game show but we are all witnessing this with our own eyes and nothing that I’m saying is exaggerated.
2 – Government has a factual history of false flag operations and staged terror
To say that government conducts phony false flag stage operations to fool the public into giving up their liberties and to create phony staged wars in order to continue their (Western US powers) domination of the world is on record and is not debatable. Anyone can refer to the Operation Northwoods documents which undeniably tell of planned false flag operations all over the United States to create a pretext for invading Cuba. Anyone can read about the Gulf of Tonkin incident and how it is clearly now revealed that there was no reality to the claim Lyndon Johnson and company made that the Vietnamese torpedo boats fired on the USS Maddox.
CIA asset Tim Osmond would later be known as “Osama Bin Laden” leader of “al-Qaeda” an organization factually on record as a creation of the CIA even admitted by the BBC in a story here. Trilateral Commission founder Zbigniew Brzezinski is on record leading the way in the radicalization of terrorists all for the service of the West in his famous “God is on our side” video! Many books have been written by the very ruling elite spelling out their plans in details, specifically 9/11 and the post-9/11 world we now live in.
9/11 aside, we have factual accounts of Operation Gladio which was conducted throughout Europe from mostly 1960-1990, an operation designed to stage terrorism and attacks throughout Europe to be blamed on the Soviet Union and to destabilize various regions. None of these events are any longer debatable.
3 – More government power means less personal freedom
There are no examples throughout human history where less government power meant less freedom or for that matter where more government power somehow concluded with more personal freedom. These ideas are directly opposed to each other like lightness and darkness. Where there is more light there will be less darkness and vice-versa. There is no getting around this reality. Yet today those pushing for gun control and those believing the reality of staged shootings and terrorism continue to call for more government power as if human freedom is expendable or irrelevant. The difference between this argument and all of the others in this article is that someone could state that they acknowledge that more government power means less freedom (think Left Wing Liberals) and that they are okay with this. If you are someone who thinks like this then fine but put it on the record. You are allowed to have this opinion, but let us all be clear about this opinion you are holding.
Those who don’t care to have more freedom of choice, freedom of speech and freedom of human behavior so long as it doesn’t cause harm to others and prefer to have less freedoms so that a large over-reaching government can have more power to supposed protect you from supposed external threats should be noted. The fact is that even these people cannot deny the core argument being made here and that is that more government power indeed leads to less personal freedom. With this objective and undeniable point made, I would say to all those who agree yet still want government to have more power – please stay out of my (our, freedom lovers) personal life and stop impacting my (our) personal freedom. What you are doing is very selfish and illogical and most of all historically only leads to death and destruction of civilizations.
4 – ISIS was factually created, funded trained and armed by the West and its allies
Funny how the ruling elite and their mass media are now treating ISIS as an independent, on-the-loose, somehow unstoppable “terrorist” group that somehow hates the United States and wants to attack our cities with “ISIS-inspired” shooters. As many of you know the ISIS psyop is now the driving force behind almost every shooting; but the fact of the matter is that ISIS is a creation not an enemy of the US. This single reality destroys every mass shooting narrative the government tries to link to “ISIS.” This is a black-and-white issue or an all-or-nothing issue. If ISIS was created by the US they cannot be enemies with the US, plain and simple. This single reality is a reality that most people who have bought into the ISIS narrative the past few years refuse to accept but nothing they do will change this.
I’ve said it many times. The greatest gift to the ruling elite and their new world order plans is ISIS paid-for staged terrorism. Without ISIS (which is no different than 9/11s patsy group al-Qaeda) the PNAC plans, specifically the take-over of Syria and Iraq would not have happened, not to mention Libya, Sudan and other regions in the Middle East and Africa which have practically been handed over to ISIS or other related group (al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, “moderate rebels,” etc.).
lso, without ISIS the American police state and many components of the new world order would be dead. The gift that ISIS represents to the new world order plans is immeasurable. On top of all of this, anyone can easily verify for themselves that the West was planning all along to create a proxy army to help destabilize specific nation states and regions in accordance to their PNAC plans. It is not debatable that ISIS is a creation of the US and their NATO allies and they have been kept alive with funding that is on record. They have also been kept alive in our minds by the mainstream media due to the fact the the US-Israel-Saudi Arabia-Turkey and others gave them all the weapons, training, support, equipment, supplies and mission statements they need to continue existing. The CIA, Mossad and the Western media has then made sure to give ISIS the greatest PR and marketing campaign in the history of mankind including Hollywood style videos, viral stories, reminders, announcements, images and much more.
For years Western mainstream media has announced every single opinion and thought that ISIS has. As I’ve said many time the top corporations and celebrities on the planet cannot purchase this level of PR. Therefore, regardless of what events happen today, the reality of the roots of ISIS is undeniable and factual.
What we are now seeing is the end result of all those years of ISIS marketing and PR. The campaign was conducted with the goal of embedding the fake ISIS threat DEEP in your mind and with every staged shooting they are drawing from the last few years of that campaign hoping that you simply believe their lies. These repeated lies about ISIS, however, cannot stand up to the facts.
5 – The rule of law now officially does not apply to Hillary Clinton and other ruling elites
With FBI criminal and corrupt director James Comey now on record ignoring the Hillary Clinton’s obvious and blatant crimes of maintaining classified government information on her personal email server not to mention the murder trail she is leaving behind, the rule of law officially does not apply to her. There is nothing new here since the Bush/Cheney war criminals are still not prosecuted for 9/11, Iraq, torture and a long string of murders … and before that Bill Clinton got away with a lot. What we are seeing now is a more open and in-your-face defiance of the law by the ruling elite who seem to be saying “we’ve got the judges, the FBI and all authorities on our side and there’s nothing you can do about it.” No one can deny this reality that is now before us as it is factually being rubbed in all of our faces as we speak.
So regardless of how many mass shootings take place, and assuming they are all real in the fictional reality we are hypothesizing, in addition to all the points already made everyone must add to this list the harsh reality that those in charge are creating an irreversible path to power where their very crimes are high above the law. Let that sink in for a minute.
6 – The federal 3-letter alphabet agencies lie all the time and have endorsed false flag attacks and staged events
The list of lies, deceit, withholding of evidence, corruption and endorsement of terror plots linked to the FBI that past 15+ years are countless. The same can be said for the cooperation of DHS, TSA, NSA, BLM, FDA and many other 3-letter federal agencies who have no record of working for justice, truth or the people of the nation. Here’s an exercise you can do at home. Type in “FBI lies” then “blank” where “blank” can be anything from 9/11, Boston bombing, Orlando or any other shooting or false flag psyop event you want to insert and see what you come up with. You can do this with other agencies and fill your plate with piles of factual accounts, stories, documents, testimonies and on and on that prove all of these agencies exist solely to perpetuate the new world order global agenda of the ruling elite. Notably, sometimes these agencies will actually put out truth to support another lie as in this example which admits Cheney lied to imply Iraq was involved in 9/11 but the same report endorses the 9/11 official story. Cheney lied alright!
That said, given that many well-meaning people work for these agencies, there are many times where certain individuals actually come out and tell truth and amazingly the media silences them or pays this information little to no attention. So let’s keep in mind we’re talking about the agencies as a whole not necessarily the individuals who work for these agencies who tend to be more straightforward and honest not realizing the greater picture of the entity they work for.
7 – The idea that a big government with more power will solve the problems of humanity is fictional with no historical examples to back it up
I challenge anyone reading this to find me an example throughout all of history where an over-reaching power-hungry tyrannical government proved to be a good thing for the people. You won’t find it because tyranny and enslavement is something humanity has been fighting against since the beginning of time. Today many people are under a delusion that somehow this time it will be different. This is why the ruling elite always use positive and bright sounding words when describing the new global plan or Agenda 21/Agenda 2030. Notice they always use words like “sustainable,” “peace,” “prosperity” and notions of “cooperation” and “unity.” Don’t be fooled by these deceptive psyop terms. This is like the classic wolf in sheep’s clothing luring you into thinking that all is peace and love. Nonsense! Tyranny is tyranny regardless of what year or what generation is subjected to it, and it never ends well. This is objective truth. As I said, there are no historical examples of a “peace love and prosperity” version of tyranny which is what a lot of brainwashed TV watching Americans actually believe.
These 7 facts and objective and easily verifiable points stand alone regardless of whether you want to believe in the flood of psyop shootings and supposed “terror” events that humanity is subjected to here in America and around the world. Do not be fooled by emotion, propaganda, news speak and any other tactic of deception to get you to accept your new reality where more not less government power is the solution somehow to these mass shootings. Don’t fall for the deception that a stronger police state will somehow stop police from being shot when there is no history or evidence for this at all in the same way that there is no evidence or justification for “lockdown.” Realize that the only thing the recent “police shootings” psyop has done is give life to the idea of expanding the 1033 program which allows the local police to have military weapons and gear to use against the people. Don’t get sucked into the kumbaya funeral ceremonies that precede the call for more gun legislation and donations. Turn off your emotions and stop believing the illusions and delusion sold to you by those who want to enslave you.
More than ever in the history of humankind there is an urgent need for you the individual to think on your own; and not doing so means you will die or be permanently enslaved. Will you finally think on your own? Are you too lazy to do so? Only time will tell.
As an activist and researcher I want to call on all of humanity to use the open-source information available to everyone and stop limiting your view of the world by subjecting it to the inexplicably narrow and very (CIA) controlled Western mainstream media information bottleneck. Setting your mind free from this artificially tight restriction of information known as the Western mainstream media is now a matter of life and death. Think about this before you absorb the next story.

Chaos everywhere as current world order continues to collapse while new age begins
The world situation is becoming increasingly chaotic with major events taking place in Turkey, France, Japan, the United States, China and elsewhere. The events are all linked to the ongoing collapse of the global structure that was put in place at the end of World War 2. Chinese government analysts believe the entire current world architecture will suffer a total systems collapse by the year 2018 after which a new, improved, structure will replace it. For this reason they expect accelerating global turmoil between now and then.
Let us start with a look at the attempted coup d’etat in Turkey last week. Mossad sources tried to pin the attempt on Russia and added “this was just round one.” However, Pentagon sources say jets piloted by Israeli trained Saudi Arabian pilots flying out of the NATO airbase in Incirlik dropped a bright flashing but not very damage causing low grade nuclear weapon in front of the Turkish Parliament building during the attempted overthrow of President Recep Erdogan.
The Pentagon sources suspect Erdogan used light shows like that as part of a staged the coup attempt against himself in order to give him an excuse to purge the Turkish military and law enforcement agencies of rivals. One Pentagon source said that “because Erdogan renewed ties to Mossad and may steal US nukes at Incirlik to arm ISIS, the coup is far from over.”
Chinese government sources, however, had a very different interpretation of events in Turkey. They say the Turkish government was attacked because it was moving away from NATO and towards the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. The Turkish government is also negotiating with the Iranian government to create a Sunni/Shia Muslim alliance and renew the Caliphate. The Khazarian mafia front organization ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) is trying to stop this by creating a fake Caliphate and acting in disgusting ways designed to make everybody hate Muslims. What is at stake is the $2 trillion in oil and gas money coming out of the Middle East every year.
With such high stakes, Erdogan is now a high priority assassination target and we can expect a lot more trouble in the Middle East before the dust settles. However, if Turkey is working in tandem with Iran and mending fences with Russia and Egypt as well, they appear to have the strongest hand.
Now let us take a look at what is happening in France. Here we have a wildly unpopular government staging fake terrorist attacks in order to extend martial law. The government is doing this because the Italian banking system is collapsing and will take the French banking system down with it. So, in order to distract the French people from the financial troubles they need to create a fake external enemy to unify the country around.
Videos of the aftermath of the attack in Nice where a truck supposedly killed 84 people and injured another 200 appear to show a trail of real bodies (gathered up from hospitals around the country?). However, a friend working at the Japanese national broadcaster NHK’s news desk says NHK reported for about 4 hours that the truck in Nice was full of weapons and hand grenades. However, a CNN reporter on the scene reported the weapons were all fake, after which CNN, NHK and others dropped the “full of weapons” meme from their coverage. Then there is the fact the impoverished alleged killer sent $100,000 to his family before the incident.
Also for some reason, the corporate media decided to completely ignore what looks like a spectacular attempt to blow up the Eiffel tower on the same day. Maybe there were too many witnesses to the fakery there so they decided to just pretend that little stunt never happened. A video of this incident has now been deleted from the net, but a photo can be seen here:
No matter what though, the French fascist’s Gladio operations are not going to stop the revolution that is unfolding in that country.
In any case, both the French and Turkish smoke and mirrors shows distracted from far more important events taking place in the Asia. We can confirm from our own CIA and Chinese sources what Neil Keenan has reported about UN Secretary General Bank Ki Moon and David Rockefeller going begging and not getting anything.
We can also add new information about the Emperor of Japan’s announced resignation. Ban Ki Moon was in Korea and China trying to find gold to keep the Rockefeller’s UN Corporation in business and to ask for the job of President of South Korea. He was told to buzz off.
After that David Rockefeller phoned his “old family friend” Emperor Akihito and asked for gold. Akihito told Rockefeller that he was not allowed to do so. Immediately after this phone call took place, the government’s NHK news announced the Emperor, for health reasons, was going to be the first in 200 years to abdicate the throne. A Japanese government official who recently attended a ceremony presided over by the Emperor confirmed he made glaring mistakes during the ceremony and showed signs of senility. The source added that the emperor was exhausted by ongoing negotiations to set up a world government and wanted to pass the job on to his son and heir Naruhito.
Having failed in China, Korea and Japan, The Rockefeller/Bush/Clinton faction of the Khazarian mafia is now going to make a big push to steal gold from Indonesia. CIA sources in Indonesia say that country is at its highest level of military alert as a result. The source adds that the Khazarians are trying to assassinate President Widodo and have offered the Suharto clan (friends of Henry Kissinger) power and wealth if they help overthrow Widodo and the Sukarno clan who support him. The Suharto’s have been told to back off or be killed.
There has also been an attempt by the Khazarians to use tensions in the South China Sea to provoke World War 3 in order to keep themselves in business. The ruling passed against China’s claims in the South China Sea by a UN tribunal is being used to try to provoke a war between the US and China. Admiral Dennis C. Blair, former head of the US Pacific Command told the US Congress on July 13th the US should use force to stop China in the South China Sea. Blair now works for the National Bureau of Asian Research whose corporate sponsors include the Chevron Corporation, ConocoPhillips Company, Ernst&Young, the ExxonMobil Corporation, GE, Microsoft, etc. In other words he works for the Rockefellers.
In any case, the horse trading between China and the US military industrial complex continues with the South China Sea issue being one of the US sides’ best bargaining chips. Following the ruling against China, US Secretary of State John Kerry went to Russia to lobby Vladimir Putin to work with the US against China in the SCS. The US is also approaching India, Vietnam, Japan etc. with this ruling in hand to try to seek help. The Chinese have counter-acted by courting the Europeans and others.
A Chinese government official explained real reason China was taking a stubborn approach to the SCS issue is that the ocean around the submarine base they have on Hainan Island is too shallow for submarines to conceal themselves. That is why they are building submarine bases next to 2000 meter deep water in the South China Sea. The Chinese argue they need that to keep their nuclear deterrent intact and thus prevent anybody from miscalculating they could win a nuclear war against China with a pre-emptive strike.
This South China Sea table thumping is probably going to end with the Chinese accepting a new US naval base on Indonesian Islands in the South China Sea and the Americans allowing the Chinese to build a submarine base located next to deep water.
The Chinese also say they have no interest in using the bankruptcy of the US and Europe to try to impose Chinese hegemony. A top Chinese Red and Blue Society member described China, the US and Europe as like three legs of a table that needed each other to keep the table from falling over.
The US military and agencies and China also have a common enemy in the Khazarian mafia. On this front the Russians and the Vatican are also in agreement. To force the Khazarian mafia to surrender, a missile strike is now being planned on the Rothschild family complex in Zug, Switzerland.
For the sake of future generations, the Rothschilds have been given until July 25th to evacuate all the priceless art treasures they have there. After that, unless the Rothschilds surrender, that complex will be hit, Pentagon officials say.
Other sources have also come forth to say the Rothschilds are only pretending to be separate from the Rockefeller/Bush/Clinton gang and should not be trusted to keep any deal unless they have no other choice.
Also, representatives of the White Dragon Society had meetings with several Asian factions to discuss the 1 ton gold bounty placed by the WDS on certain members of the Khazarian mafia. The WDS explained that the West was like a beautiful woman infected with syphilis and that the Asians need to make sure she takes anti-biotics before getting too friendly.
The Asians agreed and confirmed gold and agents will be made available. Pentagon and agency sources responded to the bounties with requests for more names to be added. So, at Pentagon and agency request a one ton gold bounty will be placed on the people they mentioned:
Jacob de Rothschild, Evelyn de Rothschild, Jay Rockefeller, George Soros, Dick Cheney, Paul Kagan, Henry Kissinger, Angela Merkel, Neil Bush, Jeb Bush, Marvin Bush, Michael Mukasey, Scooter Libby, 911 judge Alvin Hellerstein, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Dov Zakheim, Michael Chertoff, Frank Lowy, Larry Silverstein, Rudolf Giuliani, Michael Bloomberg, Paul Singer, Mark Zuckerberg, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Tony Blair, Haim Saban, Sheldon Adelson, Arnon Milchan, Hank Paulson, Bob Rubin, Sandy Weill (Citigroup) Lloyd Blank-fein (Goldman Sachs), Jamie Dimon (JP Morgan) and Stanley Fischer.
The bankrupt Clinton/Bush/Rockefeller clan is now in such peril that it seems even God is against them. According to CNBC, Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr. and Tony Blair were chased out of a meeting in Arkansas by a tornado, which is most definitely the sort of incident referred to as an “act of God.”

WHAT DO THEY BELIEVE?
To be a real American, one must understand the history of the different kinds of governments, and insist on lawful protections for the people and their assets. That sentence is the epitome of freedom from tyranny, because history has documented how tyrannical most governments have been to their constituents.
Unless the children are raised up with this knowledge being the focus of their attention, sooner or later they will fall pray to demented desires and lean toward democracy because they want to make the world to suit them.
This is called human nature, and the correct teaching of Christian scripture authenticates all humans are born with a depraved nature, and must seek God for redemption. This ideology was prevalent in the beginning of America, but was denigrated by depraved Pastors, and the ever present desire to be in charge of ones depraved mind. Also, many parents were too lazy to study scripture and allowed these depraved Pastors to “bend their minds” so to speak.
This entire problem human beings have with getting along with one another is directly due to their depraved desire to make their own rules, do their own thing, and be in charge!
Any intelligent person can and should study real history so as to know what human traits to follow and avoid, because those who have the compulsion to lead are usually depraved.
Not all men/women are tyrants, but most will struggle with, and find the ability to get people to obey His/Her dictates until they are holding power over the people. Hence, unbreakable provision must be in place before any government comes to power. This is available in plain English in the Bible, and is the not a hindrance to government, or the unbeliever.
I have never heard of a Church forcing people to attend as the depraved know full well they must have a system of division to play one group over another. So, how can a group of doctrinally ignorant people choose a pastor?
THEY CANNOT! Therefore raising up a child in a godly home and school is of upmost importance. Homo sapiens must be converted before they can live in peace.
I do not write this with the confidence I am a born-again Christian, but from the knowledge gained from a compulsive life of studying the train-wreck of demented human-beings that were never educated on the history of man-kind. How can one avoid tyranny if they know not what it is and looks like?
Surreptitious men and women prowl the world looking for followers, knowing full well the power of their gymnastic word-smithing, and these liars abound everywhere, and the only protection from their linguistic narcotics is knowledge of the past.
I believe coupled with the events this generation has personally witnessed; what I have claimed above should be easy to accept. Even if Christianity is no longer acceptable to the majority of this country and generation, something must convince them to avoid being ignorant of the past failures of the Church, the government, and the morals of the people.
Being convinced that only moral people can lead a group of people if freedom is to prevail, I will now itemize some absolutes that history has authenticated must be followed.
(1)As stated above only intelligent and informed people are equipped to be leaders and that should apply to those who vote. One cannot escape the necessity of having learned from past history that a democracy equalizes everyone regardless of their knowledge and negates the votes of the learned person. The results are catastrophic! The person who wants to vote their self some benefit they have not the skill or intelligence to acquire on their own is a burden to everyone else, denigrates freedom, and has no value to the Nation. Supporting the poor is the obligation of the Christian community and those who have more than they need.
(2)A performance bond should be forced on all who occupy government offices, from the President on down. The people must demand total compliance to the Constitution by their elected representatives and all government employees.
(3)As the need for more and more communication between other Nations has increased from the out of control world commerce the Bankers forced on us, an import export equalization must be designed and adhered to, and only bonded people with prior international commerce experience should be allowed to represent the States.
(4)The people’s militias must be reinstated by the states with no control by the National Government and after a period of time if it becomes a necessity a National army-Navy may be formed with permission of all the States, but never allowed to exercise operations falling under the state Militias’ obligations. Only foreign wars are the obligation of the National armed forces and it is the equal by population, obligation of the States to finance an Army-Navy
(5)From past experience it is foolish for the States to surrender any authority to a National government, and must establish said national government with State governors, leaving the obligation of state operations to the deputy Governor.
(6) Public education facilities should be funded and maintained by State Governments but have no authority over the Teachers or administration and every community should have a school staffed by teachers who have attended and excelled in constitutional law. The number of Government supplied buildings for education must conform to each neighborhood population requirements. An agreed on number of students per buildings should be established by a County Government and controlled by County Commissioners. All physical maintenance needs should be by the private sector. School supplies are the responsibility of the parents and when necessary by the County.
(7)All possible means of eliminating control over the people by powerful organizations, both private, Corporate, and Government must be applied in the States Constitutions.
This is going to be an on going project and all readers are welcome to participate with suggestions by email. I will publish your name with each suggestion or withhold it per your choice. Time prevents me from committing to the full and complete document, and it is your country and future to help protect also, besides no one person has the intelligence and experience to be a lone author of this project.

“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison
America is a ticking time bomb.
All that remains to be seen is who—or what—will set fire to the fuse.
We are poised at what seems to be the pinnacle of a manufactured breakdown, with police shooting unarmed citizens, snipers shooting police, global and domestic violence rising, and a political showdown between two presidential candidates equally matched in unpopularity.
The preparations for the Republican and Democratic national conventions taking place in Cleveland and Philadelphia—augmented by a $50 million federal security grant for each city—provide a foretaste of how the government plans to deal with any individual or group that steps out of line: they will be censored, silenced, spied on, caged, intimidated, interrogated, investigated, recorded, tracked, labeled, held at gunpoint, detained, restrained, arrested, tried and found guilty.
For instance, anticipating civil unrest and mass demonstrations in connection with the Republican Party convention, Cleveland officials set up makeshift prisons, extra courtrooms to handle protesters, and shut down a local university in order to house 1,700 riot police and their weapons. The city’s courts are preparing to process up to 1,000 people a day. Additionally, the FBI has also been conducting “interviews” with activists in advance of the conventions to discourage them from engaging in protests.
Make no mistake, the government is ready for a civil uprising.
Indeed, the government has been preparing for this moment for years.
A 2008 Army War College report revealed that “widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.” The 44-page report goes on to warn that potential causes for such civil unrest could include another terrorist attack, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters.”
Subsequent reports by the Department of Homeland Security to identify, monitor and label right-wing and left-wing activists and military veterans as extremists (a.k.a. terrorists) have manifested into full-fledged pre-crime surveillance programs. Almost a decade later, after locking down the nation and spending billions to fight terrorism, the DHS has concluded that the greater threat is not ISIS but domestic right-wing extremism.
Meanwhile, the government has been amassing an arsenal of military weapons for use domestically and equipping and training their “troops” for war. Even government agencies with largely administrative functions such as the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Smithsonian have been acquiring body armor, riot helmets and shields, cannon launchers and police firearms and ammunition. In fact, there are now at least 120,000 armed federal agents carrying such weapons who possess the power to arrest.
Rounding out this profit-driven campaign to turn American citizens into enemy combatants (and America into a battlefield) is a technology sector that is colluding with the government to create a Big Brother that is all-knowing, all-seeing and inescapable. It’s not just the drones, fusion centers, license plate readers, stingray devices and the NSA that you have to worry about. You’re also being tracked by the black boxes in your cars, your cell phone, smart devices in your home, grocery loyalty cards, social media accounts, credit cards, streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, and e-book reader accounts.
All of this has taken place right under our noses, funded with our taxpayer dollars and carried out in broad daylight without so much as a general outcry from the citizenry.
It’s astounding how convenient we’ve made it for the government to lock down the nation.
We’ve even allowed ourselves to be acclimated to the occasional lockdown of government buildings, Jade Helm military drills in small towns so that special operations forces can get “realistic military training” in “hostile” territory, and Live Active Shooter Drill training exercises, carried out at schools, in shopping malls, and on public transit, which can and do fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers and bystanders into thinking it’s a real crisis.
The events of recent years—the invasive surveillance, the extremism reports, the civil unrest, the protests, the shootings, the bombings, the military exercises and active shooter drills, the color-coded alerts and threat assessments, the fusion centers, the transformation of local police into extensions of the military, the distribution of military equipment and weapons to local police forces, the government databases containing the names of dissidents and potential troublemakers—have all conjoined to create an environment in which “we the people” are more distrustful and fearful of each other and more reliant on the government to keep us safe.
Of course, that’s the point.
The powers-that-be want us to feel vulnerable.
They want us to fear each other and trust the government’s hired gunmen to keep us safe from terrorists, extremists, jihadists, psychopaths, etc.
Most of all, the powers-that-be want us to feel powerless to protect ourselves and reliant on and grateful for the dubious protection provided by the American police state.
Their strategy is working.
The tree of liberty is dying.
There will be no second American Revolution.
There is no place in our nation for the kind of armed revolution our forefathers mounted against a tyrannical Great Britain. Such an act would be futile and tragic. We are no longer dealing with a distant, imperial king but with a tyrant of our own making: a militarized, technologized, heavily-financed bureaucratic machine that operates beyond the reach of the law.
The message being sent to the citizenry is clear: there will be no revolution, armed or otherwise.
Anyone who believes that they can wage—and win—an armed revolt against the American police state has not been paying attention. Those who wage violence against the government and their fellow citizens are playing right into the government’s hands. Violence cannot and will not be the answer to what ails America.
Whether instigated by the government or the citizenry, violence will only lead to more violence. It does not matter how much firepower you have. The government has more firepower.
It does not matter how long you think you can hold out by relying on survivalist skills, guerilla tactics and sheer grit. The government has the resources to outwait, out-starve, outman, outgun and generally overpower you.
This government of wolves will not be overtaken by force.
Unfortunately, we waited too long to wake up to the government’s schemes.
We did not anticipate that “we the people” would become the enemy. For years, the government has been warning against the dangers of domestic terrorism, erecting surveillance systems to monitor its own citizens, creating classification systems to label any viewpoints that challenge the status quo as extremist, and training law enforcement agencies to equate anyone possessing anti-government views as a domestic terrorist.
What the government failed to explain was that the domestic terrorists would be of the government’s own making, whether intentional or not.
By waging endless wars abroad, by bringing the instruments of war home, by transforming police into extensions of the military, by turning a free society into a suspect society, by treating American citizens like enemy combatants, by discouraging and criminalizing a free exchange of ideas, by making violence its calling card through SWAT team raids and militarized police, by fomenting division and strife among the citizenry, by acclimating the citizenry to the sights and sounds of war, and by generally making peaceful revolution all but impossible, the government has engineered an environment in which domestic violence has become inevitable.
What we are now experiencing is a civil war, devised and instigated in part by the U.S. government.
The outcome for this particular conflict is already foregone: the police state wins.
The objective: compliance and control.
The strategy: destabilize the economy through endless wars, escalate racial tensions, polarize the populace, heighten tensions through a show of force, intensify the use of violence, and then, when all hell breaks loose, clamp down on the nation for the good of the people and the security of the nation.
So where does that leave us?
Despite the fact that communities across the country are, for all intents and purposes, being held hostage by a government that is armed to the teeth and more than willing to use force in order to “maintain order,” most Americans seem relatively unconcerned. Worse, we have become so fragmented as a nation, so hostile to those with whom we might disagree, so distrustful of those who are different from us, that we are easily divided and conquered.
We have been desensitized to violence, acclimated to a military presence in our communities and persuaded that there is nothing we can do to alter the seemingly hopeless trajectory of the nation. In this way, the floundering economy, the blowback arising from military occupations abroad, police shootings, the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure and all of the other mounting concerns have become non-issues to a populace that is easily entertained, distracted, manipulated and controlled.
The sight of police clad in body armor and gas masks, wielding semiautomatic rifles and escorting an armored vehicle through a crowded street, a scene likened to “a military patrol through a hostile city,” no longer causes alarm among the general populace.
We are fast becoming an anemic, weak, pathetically diluted offspring of our revolutionary forebears incapable of mounting a national uprising against a tyrannical regime.
If there is to be any hope of reclaiming our government and restoring our freedoms, it will require a different kind of coup: nonviolent, strategic and grassroots, starting locally and trickling upwards. Such revolutions are slow and painstaking. They are political, in part, but not through any established parties or politicians.
Most of all, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, for any chance of success, such a revolution will require more than a change of politics: it will require a change of heart among the American people, a reawakening of the American spirit, and a citizenry that cares more about their freedoms than their fantasy games.
