Do you really own something that you are forced to perpetually make payments on and which can be seized from you if you don’t pay?

I would say that you don’t.

You would possess such an item, but you wouldn’t ownit—an important distinction.

A ridiculous perversion of the concept of ownership and property rights has infected most of the world like a virus: something that most people unquestioningly accept as a normal part of life—like it’s a part of the eternal fabric of the cosmos.

I am talking about property taxes, of course.

You know, the annual tax you pay that is based not on whether any income was generated, but rather on the underlying value of real estate you supposedly “own.” There is no way to pay off this obligation in one fell swoop; it stays with you for as long as you “own” the property.

In actuality, you don’t own anything which you must pay property taxes on—you are merely renting it from the government.

Suppose you bought a sofa set and coffee table for your living room for $5,000 cash, and then had the obligation to pay $100—or a percentage of the furniture’s value—in tax each year for as long as you “owned” it. Then suppose that for whatever reason you’re unable or unwilling to pay your furniture’s property tax. It won’t take long for the government to swoop in and confiscate it to pay off your delinquent taxes. You get to “own” it as long as you pay the never-ending annual fee—stop paying and you’ll find out who really owns it.

 

While many people would correctly find a furniture property tax absurd, they also illogically find it acceptable for the government to levy an insatiable tax on different assets—namely their homes, offices, and raw land.

But to me at least, the type of asset being taxed is not what makes it absurd, it’s the concept of property taxes that is absurd.

Respect for property rights and property taxes are mutually exclusive concepts. What’s yours is yours, and you shouldn’t need to pay the government for permission to keep it.

It’s not uncommon for people in North America and Europe to pay tens of thousands of dollars per year in property taxes … just to live in their own homes. And this burden will almost certainly continue to rise. Property taxes are constantly being raised in most places, especially in places with poor fiscal health.

It’s very possible that over a lifetime, the total amount of property taxes extracted will exceed what was paid for the underlying property in the first place.

And, just like the furniture example above, if you don’t pay your property tax (AKA government rent) on the home you thought you owned, it will be confiscated. This is not as uncommon as some would believe. It was estimated that 10,000 people in Pennsylvania alone lose their homes annually because they aren’t able to keep up with the property taxes.
Using the word “own” and “ownership” in these contexts is the sloppy use of the word—which always leads to sloppy thinking.

Speaking of sloppy thinking, expect Boobus Americanus to say things like “how would we pay for local services like public schools if it weren’t for property taxes?” Of course, these services could be funded in many different ways—or better, they could be provided for in the free market. But don’t expect that to happen. In fact, given the social, political, and economic dynamics in the US and most of the rest of the West, expect the opposite—property taxes have nowhere to go but north.
It doesn’t have to be this way. You can own real estate in certain countries and can skip the annual property-tax harvest.

I have previously written that I view real estate in foreign countries—along with physical gold held abroad—as superior vehicles for long-term savings.
However, foreign real estate has its drawbacks. It’s illiquid and has carrying costs like maintenance expenses and, of course, property taxes. To diminish these costs that eat away at your real estate investment, it is essential to minimize or eliminate them.

Here’s a list of countries that do not levy any property taxes:

9-19-2014 10-22-35 AM

That’s it. If you want to escape the rapacious and ridiculous property tax, these are your options. Ireland would have been on this list, but it recently adopted a property tax. This does not bode well for other EU countries that conceivably could face fiscal troubles and turn to property taxes as a solution—like Malta and Croatia.

Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Nicaragua have property taxes, but the obligations are generally negligible.

The risk, of course, is that since a property tax is already in place in these countries it can easily be increased whenever the government decides it needs more revenue.

Case in point: the bankrupt government of Greece.

Consider the excerpt below from an article in The Guardian.

The joke now doing the rounds is: if you want to punish your child, you threaten to pass on property to them … Greeks traditionally have always regarded property as a secure investment. But now it has become a huge millstone, given that the tax burden has increased sevenfold in the past two years alone.

The country on the list above that most interests me is the Cayman Islands, but to each his own. This is because most Caymanians are vehemently opposed to all forms of direct taxation and have never had it in their history. That attitude and history is a good guarantor that it will be very unlikely for a property tax to be imposed sometime in the future.

In any case, buying foreign real estate is a very individualized and often complex decision—but one that provides huge diversification benefits. Property taxes are but one consideration.

You should look at foreign real estate less as a vehicle for a quick return and more as a diversified long-term store of wealth. Wherever you decide to buy, it should also be in a place that you would actually want to spend some significant time in. That way, the property has value to you, regardless of whether it proves to be a good investment.

One expert on foreign real estate whom I’d highly recommend is none other than Doug Casey, the original International Man and my mentor. Doug’s been to over 175 countries and invested in real estate in a number them. He wrote a thick and detailed chapter on foreign real estate, including his favorite markets, for our Going Global publication, which is a must-read for those interested in this extremely important topic.

COMMON CORE CHOICE AND CHARTER SCHOOLS

September 18th, 2014 by

 While everyone is out there debating Common Core, there is a system of standardization being put in place. And, if you are unaware of this system, what you don’t know about Common Core, Choice, and Charter Schools CAN hurt you.

This story tells a different Common Core tale with a much different ending than those who support choice might want. What most people are NOT thinking about is why education is one of the most important functions of our Republic. The answer to this question is important for all of us. Not only are we educating our future citizens, but through the local elections of our school board members they have the ultimate authority over our taxing system through property taxes. How do these “education reforms” impact our representative government?

When you consider that there is a movement to destroy our representative government, “common core, choice and charter school initiatives” become the perfect impetus to change our American system by (1) moving away from teaching content to a “conditioning” process, and (2) changing how elected local school board members will no longer be minding our local treasury, property taxes. This overview tells a different story about where we are in this process than what you will find in most other debates about Common Core and Choice. Lets focus on the facts and think about how Charter Schools will impact the future of America.

Think about this. If we no longer have public schools with locally elected school board members, what will happen to your taxes? What happens to your vote and your voice in government? If our public school system is changed to a privatized “choice” system that uses our hard earned taxes with no elected boards, who controls what is taught? The parents? The citizen voters? Charter Schools are the ultimate goal for the takeover of public education. Charter schools are privately owned, usually for profit, with no elected local school board members, and they use public tax money. Plus, parents have no say in how they are run or what is taught.

Think about this. There were three major actions under the Obama administration, without legislative approval, to change two hundred years of traditional public education in the United States. (1) The Common Core copyright, which created a national curriculum and national testing mandating that individual students meet individual standards (similar to the Obamacare individual mandate). (2) Unlocking data ‘to flow’ through the Family Education Rights in Privacy Act, FERPA, which allows personally identifiable information on our children to flow to outside 3rd party contractors for research and curriculum development to match Common Core. And, (3) No Child Left Behind Flexibility Waiver, (ESEA, Elementary and Secondary Education Act), that is re-training teachers to teach to Common Core. This also allowed ALL children in public school to be funded under Title I by changing the definition of who is poor or educationally deprived to anyone not meeting Common Core. (Free and reduced lunch guidelines of 40% school-wide were dropped to 0%.) These three important points control standards and testing, curriculum, and teachers with all public school children being funded under Title I.

So the question that must be asked is what else must be changed to move toward this direction – this plan to destroy public education and collapse our old system of representative government? A key element is federal “choice” which is vehemently supported by Republicans. The stage has already been set with charter schools. Caps have been removed on establishing charter schools in many states because of promises made to Obama when accepting Race to the Top grants. Secretary of Education Duncan dealt out illegal No Child Left Behind Flexibility Waivers (ESEA) that changed Title I funding to blanket an entire public school. Every child becomes Title I where money ‘follows the child’ and this targets EVERY child in public school to change toward Common Core without a law being passed. .

Now consider this! How can Republicans and Democrats, with the help of President Obama and Secretary Duncan, be sure that ALL children in the United States—ALL CHILDREN, even in every private and religious school—come under the federal thumb of Common Core? They are going to GIVE those Title I funds to EVERY child in private and religious schools with FEDERAL CHOICE. With federal choice ALL schools become government schools and all schools must teach Common Core. This is what federal choice is all about—getting control of all Catholic, Christian, and private schools.

Add to this federal over-reach, the system for compliance, Total Quality Management [TQM], a business model for accountability, is the system for control. Data collection is the key to TQM by monitoring and assessing individuals continuously. By linking and cross-referencing all data in the following components, this will allow each area to be an easy target for government intervention for equity in education. This is a system where individuals are monitored for government compliance and where charter schools become the model for a government takeover. Nationalizing education in the United States and removing locally elected officials ARE the primary targets of the Obama administration.

This model is sometimes very difficult for Americans to understand because there are so many moving parts and name changes, especially under Democratic and Republican administrations who both want the same thing. The following explanation of our present condition in education, and how it relates to diminishing our representative government, tells what is needed to collapse our system of local government. This will give you an idea of how close we are to losing America as we know it.

The following list is what is needed to accomplish the goals of ‘Obama’s Equity in Education Plan’ for our entire country:

• charter schools replace public schools:
• everyone has federal Title I choice funds to go to any school (charter, private or religious schools):
• every child is taught the same standards:
• every teacher must teach the same standards:
• every test must be aligned to these standards:
• curriculum and software is aligned to standards:
• everything listed here is aligned to government data collection compliance.

Here are the details of this plan and its implementation:

The Goal: Align huge amounts of federal money toward standards, testing, teacher evaluations, data collection, and interventions to control what students know and what they can do.

The Answer: Race to the Top ($4.35 billion), No Child Left Behind (ESEA Flexibility Waivers and Title I), the proposed ESEA Re-Authorization (No Child Left Behind, Elementary and Secondary Education Act), America Competes Act, and all children will be screened using Special Education funding, IDEA, Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act.

The Goal: Make sure all students are taught the same by flattening the bell curve (every student meets the same standards) and destroying competition (no ABCDF’s). Change the educational system away from academic content to control over what is taught through an individual career pathway. Expand standards to the affective domain (conditioning) which means teaching and testing to remediate a child’s values, attitudes and beliefs to a government desired outcome.

The Answer: Common Core creates a national curriculum and a national test nationalizing education in the US standardizing and controlling the standards in each state through a copyright which removed local control of the curriculum. The College Career Citizenship Standards adds “readiness” to the standards expanding to dispositions, attitudes, values, social and emotional learning or grit for easy conditioning (brainwashing, mental health cleansing, and social engineering). Since control has been removed from the local level, now the federal government controls what the standards are and what will be taught in every school.

The Goal: Make sure all curriculum and software is validated and matched to exact same Common Core standards.

The Answer: Allow personally identifiable information to be released on students without parental knowledge or consent for research to validate curriculum matched to standards. Obama issues an Executive Order that “unlocks” FERPA, Family Educational Rights in Privacy Act, that allows third-party vendors access to a child’s personal data, including DNA sequences. Massive research is being done in the non-cognitive and affective domain. Mental health and mastery learning (functional literacy) for workforce training replaces content based on academics. Personality change and behavioral soft skills are deceptively named grit, deeper learning, school climate, safe environments, code of conduct, social and emotional learning, emotional intelligence, and interpersonal skills. Research and data trafficking of personally identifiable information on your child is rampant.

The Goal: Use illegal tactics to change federal law by using ESEA Flexibility Waivers to change the criteria so that ALL STUDENTS in public schools are identified under Title I.

The Answer: President Obama and Secretary of Education Duncan removed poverty guideline levels, thus making ALL children Title I, so ALL children in the public schools can be funded to meet the same Common Core government standards bypassing Congressional authority.

The Goal: Make sure EVERY student is achieving Common Core standards.

The Answer: Make sure the national test measures Common Core (functional literacy and behavioral outcomes) for accountability. Test, then remediate. Every child will have a ‘career pathway’ similar to an IEP in Special Ed. (Every child has a disability if they are not meeting Common Core standards.) Create interventions forcing compliance to Common Core (including mental health standards) for each student through IDEA, Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act. ALL children must be screened and remediated to meet government Common Core standards with interventions in the regular classroom, paid for through Special Ed funding—called Response to Interventions or Multi-tiered System of Support. Both academics and personality change are the targets for each child under a career pathway. Brainwashing commences to government controlled behavioral standards.

The Goal: Make sure all teachers are teaching the same standards and make sure all testing measures teacher performance for accountability.

The Answer: Teach to the test by creating teacher value added models (VAM). All teachers must be forced to teach Common Core. This is done by evaluating teachers on how their students score on tests, thus forcing them into compliance. ALL teachers must comply to teach government Common Core Standards and teach to the test. Training for teachers is a MUST, because if teachers are not teaching Common Core exactly per the government criteria, children will not meet the standards. Teachers are penalized for variables out of their control. (Extensive teacher training in the ESEA Flexibility Waiver: training includes: Charlotte Danielson Teacher Evaluations, Robert Marzano, Pelligrino’s 21st Century Skills, and Webb’s Deeper Learning.)

The Goal: Make ALL students in the United States funded as Title I via ‘follow the child’ vouchers in Obama’s Equity in Education Plan:

The Answer: Federal “choice” is not yet achieved, but, this is how it will be done. The Obama Equity Agenda is in the Re-Authorization of No Child Left Behind, ESEA, (out of committee and ready to be legislated into law) for funding that will “follow the child” under Title I, where ALL individual children must be identified and funded for meeting government Common Core Standards. The waivers have already changed Title I in public schools. So, the Republicans have attached amendments onto ESEA allowing a “CHOICE” voucher that equalizes the funding for EVERY child. This voucher will have a student’s name on it and is in every backpack of EVERY child. These amendments to ESEA call for federal “choice” vouchers to go to any child to go to any school they choose, including private and religious schools. Think about the impact.

There will be an exodus out of the public school system into charter and private schools. This wipes out zip codes being destinations for a “better” education—no more wealthy school districts. Public schools will collapse. This wipes out locally elected school boards. Any private or religious school accepting a “choice” child must teach Common Core. Obama calls this “fiscal smoothing” when every child is funded the same way. All schools—private, charter and religious schools—become government schools that must teach Common Core. Also keep in mind the states filing lawsuits against the legislatures for the unconstitutionality of funding schools, where judges are ruling inequities in rich and poor school districts.

The Goal: Make sure elected school boards are destroyed.

The Answer: Create no caps on charter schools on the state level to replace public schools. Removal of locally elected school boards is a must for the private/public privatization scheme to work. Charter school investors, like Reed Hastings of Netflix, want to get rid of locally elected school boards (He has openly stated this, watch him HERE). Obama wants bold federal action to distribute funds based on student need, not zip code, and establish a process for replacing chronically ineffective locally elected school boards. This is the set-up to destroy our representative form of government at the local level.

The Goal: Make it very profitable for private enterprises and business to invest in Charter Schools.

The Answer: The U.S. Secretary of Education can award grants for the “Credit Enhancement for Charter School Facilities” program which subsidizes and awards private entities with federal funding. Charter schools are privately run but receive public money and, as already noted, an increasing proportion of them are being run on a for-profit basis. Charter schools can access private sector and other non-Federal capital in order to acquire, construct, and renovate facilities at a reasonable cost. The tax code makes charter schools very lucrative.

Statistics have proven that where charter schools have proliferated, it is more likely that the public schools will experience financial stress. This is especially difficult for local school boards with the transfer of public assets and institutions into the hands of private corporations. The “New Markets Tax Credit” program that became law toward the end of the Clinton presidency, allows firms to invest in charters and other projects located in “underserved” areas. They can collect a generous tax credit up to 39% to offset their costs. No wonder private investors are flocking to charter schools! There is a huge risk factor for any local school district in a state that passed laws promoting “choice” along with an easy approval process for new charters, especially with no caps on expansionRace to the Top grants accentuated this process with states promising to drop their caps on charter schools when they took the money. This is the plan for confiscating our tax money. Your hard-earned money will come out of your pocket and go into the pockets of corporations.

The Goal: Eliminate public schools that aren’t meeting Common Core.

The Answer: Government takeover of schools not meeting Common Core government standards is called academic bankruptcy, priority or focus schools, and turn-around schools under ESEA Flexibility Waivers. These failing schools are a target for takeover if they do not improve their scores on Common Core national tests which ultimately points the finger at teachers. These schools will be turned into charter schools. Parent Trigger Laws also create a charter school. This continues the elimination of locally elected school board members and continues expanding charter schools that have no elected boards accountable to parents, citizens and taxpayers.

The Goal: Collapse the taxing structure in your neighborhood.

The Answer: When public schools collapse because of charter school expansion and federal “choice,” this will eliminate taxes based on property. This will seem to equalize rich and poor school districts by funding all children the same. Obama doesn’t think it is “fair” that there are rich school districts and poor school districts. Regionalizing where your tax money goes, and pulling the taxing authority away from the local level toward regional industry clusters, is the plan. Obama’s Equity in Education Plan or “fiscal smoothing” and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act align the skill needs of industries in each state economy or regional economy and places decision-making authority in the hands of unelected workforce development boards.

The Goal: Create a longitudinal database to monitor EVERY individual in the system funded from the America Competes Act.

The Answer: The state longitudinal data system, SLDS, with cross-referencing capabilities to monitor students, teachers, testing, curriculum, principals, superintendents, schools, school districts, and states, with an overall fiscal responsibility, will pinpoint each aspect and every person in the system above for accountability and compliance. Updating technology in every school a must. This is the onerous enforcement mechanism.

 The Goal: Eliminate states’ rights control of funding.

The Answer: Federal “choice” will eliminate state-level authority because of flow-through Title I funds when funding directly ‘follows the child’ from the federal level, thus eliminating states’ rights. Vouchers are now directed to the individual child. Thus the removal of states rights’ when federal Title I funds pass-through directly to the child.

No voice. No vote. Government controls everything in education. 
An equitable government controlled system, with only privatized contract schools, that teaches only a government controlled curriculum, and forces everyone to comply to government controlled standards through accountability. I think this is called communism.

If American parents really thought about this, there would be another American Revolution. Shouldn’t we all be thinking about this? The implications of this true story are real. From my vantage point, I would say we are mostly toward the end of the true American story. This isn’t just about the children. It affects us all.

Senate hearing on police militarization reveals DHS is completely out of touch with reality.

September 17th, 2014 by

http://www.pakalertpress.com/

 By TRUTHER

 Apparently the people responsible for arming our local police forces like small militaries have no idea what’s going on under their noses, and invent magical fairytales about how the vehicles and surveillance equipment their grant funds buy for police are actually used.

9-17-2014 2-12-12 PM

Yesterday the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs held hearings about police militarization, a largely federally-funded problem. The fact that much of the equipment—weapons, trucks, and surveillance toys—landing in the hands of our local police comes from grants or gifts bestowed by the feds wasn’t lost on the senators in attendance. In the wake of Ferguson, most of the country knows about this problem.

But there were a couple of shocking revelations at the hearing, among them that officials within theDepartment of Homeland Security, one of the agencies responsible for the paramilitarization of our police forces in the post-9/11 era, have a very tenuous grasp on basic facts central to their jobs.

Brian E. Kamoie, a senior official at DHS responsible for overseeing grant programs to state and local police, bragged to senators that absent help from his agency, police in Massachusetts might not have foundBoston marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The New York Times reports:

Mr. Kamoie, from Homeland Security, noted that his agency’s grants did not pay for weapons. He said infrared, helicopter-mounted surveillance gear bought with federal grants was instrumental in locating Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston bombing.

There’s just one problem: that’s totally false! As most people in the country—and possibly even the world—know, the young Tsarnaev was finally found after police called off martial law, and a citizen went outside to smoke a cigarette. Thankfully, Senator Coburn didn’t hesitate to state this obvious fact for the record. Again, the Times:

Mr. Coburn corrected him. Mr. Tsarnaev was discovered not by the police but by a Watertown, Mass., resident named Dave Henneberry who — once the police allowed people to leave their homes — walked outside and noticed a pool of blood in his boat parked in his backyard. Mr. Coburn presented an article from The Boston Globe recounting the events.

What did Mr. Kamoie, the DHS official responsible for providing surveillance equipment and bear cat armored trucks to state and local police, have to say for himself after this horrifically embarrassing blunder?

Mr. Kamoie seemed surprised. He said his colleagues had credited the helicopter camera.“I look forward to reading that article,” he said.

“His colleagues had credited the helicopter camera.” Isn’t that nice. A convenient mythology within DHS says that surveillance equipment purchased with their grant money was instrumental in finding an accused terrorist, when nothing could be further from the truth.

But that’s not all. DHS’ Kamoie also told his senate overseers that “Grant funds provided to Massachusetts and to Boston saved lives and restored and ensured public safety in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.” The first part of that sentence is likely true; emergency management training funds DHS provided to the Metro Boston region enabled hospitals and first responders to prepare for a mass casualty event, and doing so likely saved lives. But the second part of that sentence is really hard to swallow.

Police “ensured public safety in the aftermath of the bombing”? By wildly firing hundreds of rounds into a boat in a civilian neighborhood? By shooting bullets into homes during a fire-fight on a quiet residential street, injuring multiple police officers in the process, and killing one? By flooding east Watertown with militarized cops, so that the scent that could have led them to Tsarnaev, who was hiding under their noses for nearly 24 hours, would be completely trampled? By riding around in military trucks and so-called ‘bear cats’, and hauling totally innocent people out of their homes for questioning?

The police did not find Tsarnaev, full stop. None of their militarized force or surveillance prowess helped one iota. Once he was located, by a regular citizen, police officers nearly killed the remaining known witness to one of the state’s most serious crimes in history, by riddling the boat he was hiding in with hundreds of bullets. If anything, the declaration of what amounted to martial law and the extreme show of force in Watertown illustrated that might isn’t right in the domestic policing context. Sometimes less is more.

But perhaps we shouldn’t expect DHS officials to understand that, given their propensity to invent out of whole cloth heroic stories justifying their massive expansion of the surveillance state.

If anything, Boston should serve as a lesson that gumshoe detective work and community policing—not mass surveillance and overwhelming firepower—are what we need to keep our communities safe. It’s not terribly surprising that DHS officials responsible for the trickle down of the national security state to the local level refuse to accept that. But it’s shocking that they are so disconnected from reality that they invent entire mythologies about extremely significant national events to justify our descent into what increasingly resembles an authoritarian police state.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Those of you who are watching this scenario on police militarization must know by now we don’t have control of our public servants, and they are showing the worst side of humanity which is a low or non existent sense of morality. There is too much of our money circulating among these servants who could care less about morality.

Washington’s War Against Russia

September 15th, 2014 by

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/09/14/washingtons-war-russia-paul-craig-roberts-2/

By Paul Craig Roberts

The new sanctions against Russia announced by Washington and Europe do not make sense as merely economic measures. I would be surprised if Russian oil and military industries were dependent on European capital markets in a meaningful way. Such a dependence would indicate a failure in Russian strategic thinking. The Russian companies should be able to secure adequate financing from Russian Banks or from the Russian government. If foreign loans are needed, Russia can borrow from China.

If critical Russian industries are dependent on European capital markets, the sanctions will help Russia by forcing an end to this debilitating dependence. Russia should not be dependent on the West in any way.

The real question is the purpose of the sanctions. My conclusion is that the purpose of the sanctions is to break up and undermine Europe’s economic and political relations with Russia. When international relations are intentionally undermined, war can be the result. Washington will continue to push sanctions against Russia until Russia shows Europe that there is a heavy cost of serving as Washington’s tool.

Russia needs to break up this process of ever more sanctions in order to derail the drive toward war. In my opinion this is easy for Russia to do. Russia can tell Europe that since you do not like our oil companies, you must not like our gas company, so we are turning off the gas. Or Russia can tell Europe, we don’t sell natural gas to NATO members, or Russia can say we will continue to sell you gas, but you must pay in rubles, not in dollars. This would have the additional benefit of increasing the demand for rubles in exchange markets, thus making it harder for speculators and the US government to drive down the ruble.

The real danger to Russia is a continuation of its low-key, moderate response to the sanctions. This is a response that encourages more sanctions. To stop the sanctions, Russia needs to show Europe that the sanctions have serious costs for Europe.

A Russian response to Washington would be to stop selling to the US the Russian rocket engines on which the US satellite program is dependent. This could leave the US without rockets for its satellites for six years between the period 2016 and 2022.

Possibly the Russian government is worried about losing the earnings from gas and rocket engine sales. However, Europe cannot do without the gas and would quickly abandon its participation in the sanctions, so no gas revenues would be lost. The Americans are going to develop their own rocket engine anyhow, so the Russian sales of rocket engines to the US have at most about 6 more years. But the US with an impaired satellite program for six years would mean a great relief to the entire world from the American spy program. It would also make difficult US military aggression against Russia during the period.

Russian President Putin and his government have been very low-key and unprovocative in responding to the sanctions and to the trouble that Washington continues to cause for Russia in Ukraine. The low-key Russian behavior can be understood as a strategy for undermining Washington’s use of Europe against Russia by presenting a non-threatening face to Europe. However, another explanation is the presence inside Russia of a fifth column that represents Washington’s interest and constrains the power of the Russian government.

Strelkov describes the American fifth column here: http://slavyangrad.org/2014/09/

12/we-will-not-allow-for-russia-to-be-ripped-asunder-and-ruined/

Saker describes the two power groups inside Russia as the Eurasian Sovereignists who stand behind Putin and an independent Russia and the Atlantic Integrationists, the fifth column that works to incorporate Russia in Europe under US hegemony or, failing that, to help Washington break up the Russian Federation into several weaker countries that are too weak to constrain Washington’s use of power. http://vineyardsaker.blogspot.com

.br/2014/09/strelkov-from-swimming-with-piranhas-to.html

Russia’s Atlantic Integrationists share the Brzezinski and Wolfowitz doctrines with Washington. These doctrines are the basis for US foreign policy. The doctrines define the goal of US foreign policy in terms of preventing the rise of other countries, such as Russia and China, that could limit Washington’s hegemony.

Washington is in a position to exploit the tensions between these two Russian power groups. Washington’s fifth column is not best positioned to prevail. However, Washington can at least count on the struggle causing dissent within the Eurasian Sovereignists over Putin’s low-key response to Western provocations. Some of this dissent can be seen in Strelkov’s defense of Russia and more can be seen here:
http://slavyangrad.org/2014/09/13/the-new-round-of-sanctions-

the-pre-war-period/#more-3665 

Russia, thinking the Cold War ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union, opened herself to the West. Russian governments trusted the West, and as a result of Russia’s gullibility, the West was able to purchase numerous allies among the Russian elites. Depending on the alignment of the media, these compromised elites are capable of assassinating Putin and attempting a coup.

One would think that by now Putin’s government would recognize the danger and arrest the main elements of the fifth column, followed by trial and execution for treason, in order that Russia can stand united against the Western Threat. If Putin does not take this step, it means either than Putin does not recognize the extent of the threat or that his government lacks the power to protect Russia from the internal threat.

It is clear that Putin has not achieved any respite for his government from the West’s propaganda and economic assault by refusing to defend the Donbass area from Ukrainian attack and by pressuring the Donetsk Republic into a ceasefire when its military forces were on the verge of a major defeat of the disintegrating Ukrainian army. All Putin has achieved is to open himself to criticism among his supporters for betraying the Russians in eastern and southern Ukraine.

The European politicians and elites are so deeply in Washington’s pocket that Putin has little chance of courting Europe with a Russian show of good will. I have never believed that this strategy could work, although I would be pleased if it did. Only a direct threat todeprive Europe of energy has a chance of producing within Europe a foreign policy independent of Washington. I do not think Europe can survive a cutoff of the Russian natural gas. Europe would abandon sanctions in order to guarantee the flow of gas. If Washington’s hold on Europe is so powerful that Europe is willing to endure a major disruption of its energy supply as the price of its vassalage, Russia will know to cease its futile attempts at diplomacy and to prepare for war.

If China sits on the sidelines, China will be the next isolated target and will receive the same treatment.

Washington intends to defeat both countries, either through internal dissent or through war.

Nothing said by Obama or any member of his government or any influential voice in Congress has signaled any pullback in Washington’s drive for hegemony over the world.

The US economy is now dependent on looting and plunder, and Washington’s hegemony is essential to this corrupted form of capitalism.

The Dumbing down of America: Who Profits?

In Reply to Doc Blake’s post copied below the WJB reply:

By Walter Burien

Doc Blake:

Just so you don’t get played as was intended by the government boys, the illusion spoon fed us that you parroted below: “We have a rubber stamp government, run by large corporations”  Well, it was that way in the 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s, and going into the 60′s. But a big transition took place going into the beginning of the 50′s to the end of the 60′s that culminated by the mid 90′s and was absolute come 2000.

The corporations, banks, insurance, and brokerage companies from the 30′s to 60′s were constantly seeking government funds and investment capital. They thought they could influence the same. They got it each year at an ever increasing rate. That old saying of: “Walk into my pallor said the spider to the fly” doomed those companies to takeover by the eager hand of government.

Come the 70′s “collective” local and federal government was well on its way to taking over controlling interest in those companies by direct investment and cash funding to the same. Little by little bit collective government would invest each year on average 3% to 5% of their gross income. On a good year 7% to 8%. One of my favorite expressions when it comes down to government’s investments for takeover is: “there are only so many nickels to a dollar”.

Come the 90′s “collective” local and federal government owned the majority of those companies by investment, and was calling the shots as the “primary investor”. They called the shots and those holdings were being networked via  “private’ associations covertly established by the government players themselves. Private associations like GFOA.org, GASB.org, council of Mayors – State Managers – Governors – etc. And let’s not forget two of the largest private associations: The Democratic and Republican parties.

The comprehension or even a cognitive thought generated in the public per the reality of the obvious nature of what was taking place in their face and right under their noses was diligently held back from them through massive efforts applied in all relevant communication mediums that were covertly taken over DUE TO THE MONEY and wealth ever growing involved. The public never comprehended the scope and size of the government takeover.

The distractions, misdirection’s, and irrelevant promotions the public was constantly spoon fed to maintain and create a void as to the obvious was masterfully played out each and every day. For the last 10-years I have wanted to write a book entitled; “The decades of masterful entertainment applied – The road to Government takeover and ruin”

In the 80′s and 90′s collective US Government doing so well on the domestic front turned their focus on international takeover starting with Mexico in the 80′s, moving on to India and the Soviet block countries in the 90′s, and as of 2000 the big cherry to pick, China.

To pull this off it was required to keep the population delusional and misdirected to virtually the opposite thinking over the reality of the situation taking place and they pulled it off due to the massive wealth involved. The population parrots almost exactly what they are directed to parrot contrary to the basic glaring them right in the face reality of:

1. Government’s increase in their gross income each and every year (almost a 3000% increase on average in 35 years)

2. Collective Governments increase in their domestic “and” International investment holdings (collectively now the primary owner of any relevant large corporation, mortgage, loans, debt instruments and totaling in value as a conservative estimate 110 trillion domestically plus another 45 trillion internationally)

3. Why do these large corporations seem to get a pass-card and policy set to do as they wish reaping in massive profits when in some case those profits generated are seriously in conflict with or in direct conflict with the public’s interest and well being? The answer there is realized with another question and answer:

How do you get the full cooperation of government? ANSWER: Give government the largest percentage of the take. (Bank policy; trade policy; market regulatory policy; Insurance / mortgage / loan policy over the last several decades was designed to benefit primarily the largest controlling investor – collective local and federal government)

TREASON: “Treason doth never prosper; what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason.” Sir John Harrington, 1561-1612

When and if the pubic ever comprehends “the basics” it will all come into view very clearly. But then to cut through the masterful distractions and misdirection’s due to the money and wealth involve, the general public really has never had an ice-cube’s chance in hell of being able to do so.

I am working on having an impact in that arena and hope to make some real progress in that direction soon. The real cute point is I think I can do it with the full cooperation of government and the primary corporations after I have the chance to brief them on how to create a win-win for one and all that creates a thriving economy for all time to come. Done through the TRF program implemented through and by the TRFA. Hard trick to pull off but I think I can do it..

America Dumbed down? What Do You Think? Do The Crazies in WalMart Know That They Are Crazy?

From: Doc Blake – 09/24/14

WalMart Crazies!  http://youtu.be/r1TWrPRCzbo

Could 287 Chemicals in the Blood of New Born USA Babies Make WalMart Worse?

Why Are Trace Chemicals Showing Up in Umbilical Cord Blood. 

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/chemicals-umbilical-cord-blood/

This is America dumb-ed down, and totally clueless in Wal-Mart! Brain surgeon and retired neurologist Dr. Russel Blaylock spells this out in the video below.  Everyone in America needs to see this video because the implications are becoming such a deep and freighting nightmare as you can clearly see in Wal-Mart and other public areas?

Dr. Russel Blaylock, Video  http://youtu.be/CKjvfc7Fcdk

Instead of looking toward a bright future for humanity expressing the highest ideals assisted by its government, the one our founding fathers foresaw. We have a rubber stamp government, run by large corporations introducing whatever they please in the way of chemicals, heavy metals, GMO’s and toxic waste into the food-chain. Bringing mental and physical diseases to a trusting, naive public who believe everything is just fine except they are sick. While on the other side the medical establishment reaps the dividends of these chemically sick Americans and treats them with poisonous, mentally deranging and addictive drugs. So we end up in a mad house country, with the mental patients running the show.

 Solution to the Problem

A hell of a lot of government, scientific, medical and business leaders need to be convicted for this and spend a great deal of time in prisons and mental institutions. Because they have committed crimes against humanity and they are far too dangerous to the public to be allowed to cause more harm.

Happy Healthy Trails,

 OLDDOGS COMMENTS

For the first time, I have an issue with Walter’s conclusions in that he did not mention the International Banking Cartels absolute control over the government. This is the way the Bankers killed two birds with one stone. They have had control of the government from the get go, and rather than drag out the fight with all of these Corporations they used their existing traitors in Government to seize control, and profit from the major Corporations. The longer the uninformed citizens participate in elections the stronger their control becomes. Get it through your heads folks, AMERICA IS NOT A DEMOCRACY, AND YOUR VOTE DOES NOT CHANGE ANYTHING, AND THE Banking Cartel intends on extending their control globally until they own and control everything.

9/11 After 13 years

September 11th, 2014 by

http://www.pakalertpress.com/

 Paul Craig Roberts

The tragedy of September 11, 2001, goes far beyond the deaths of those who died in the towers and the deaths of firefighters and first responders who succumbed to illnesses caused by inhalation of toxic dust. For thirteen years a new generation of Americans has been born into the 9/11 myth that has been used to create the American warfare/police state.

 

9-11-2014 1-23-52 PM

The corrupt Bush and Obama regimes used 9/11 to kill, maim, dispossess and displace millions of Muslims in seven countries, none of whom had anything whatsoever to do with 9/11.

A generation of Americans has been born into disdain and distrust of Muslims.

A generation of Americans has been born into a police state in which privacy and constitutional protections no longer exist.

A generation of Americans has been born into continuous warfare while needs of citizens go unmet.

A generation of Americans has been born into a society in which truth is replaced with the endless repetition of falsehoods.

According to the official story, on September 11, 2001, the vaunted National Security State of the World’s Only Superpower was defeated by a few young Saudi Arabians armed only with box cutters. The American National Security State proved to be totally helpless and was dealt the greatest humiliation ever inflicted on any country claiming to be a power.

That day no aspect of the National Security State worked. Everything failed.

The US Air Force for the first time in its history could not get interceptor jet fighters into the air.

The National Security Council failed.

All sixteen US intelligence agencies failed as did those of America’s NATO and Israeli allies.

Air Traffic Control failed.

Airport Security failed four times at the same moment on the same day. The probability of such a failure is zero.

If such a thing had actually happened, there would have been demands from the White House, from Congress, and from the media for an investigation. Officials would have been held accountable for their failures. Heads would have rolled.

Instead, the White House resisted for one year the 9/11 families’ demands for an investigation. Finally, a collection of politicians was assembled to listen to the government’s account and to write it down. The chairman, vice chairman, and legal counsel of the 9/11 Commission have said that information was withheld from the commission, lies were told to the commission, and that the commission “was set up to fail.” The worst security failure in history resulted in not a single firing. No one was held responsible.

Washington concluded that 9/11 was possible because America lacked a police state.

The PATRIOT Act, which was awaiting the event was quickly passed by the congressional idiots. The Act established executive branch independence of law and the Constitution. The Act and follow-up measures have institutionalized a police state in “the land of the free.”

Osama bin Laden, a CIA asset dying of renal failure, was blamed despite his explicit denial. For the next ten years Osama bin Laden was the bogyman that provided the excuse for Washington to kill countless numbers of Muslims. Then suddenly on May 2, 2011, Obama claimed that US Navy SEALs had killed bin Laden in Pakistan. Eyewitnesses on the scene contradicted the White House’s story. Osama bin Laden became the only human in history to survive renal failure for ten years. There was no dialysis machine in what was said to be bin Laden’s hideaway. The numerous obituaries of bin Laden’s death in December 2001 went down the memory hole. And the SEAL team died a few weeks later in a mysterious helicopter crash in Afghanistan. The thousands of sailors on the aircraft carrier from which bin Laden was said to have been dumped into the Indian Ocean wrote home that no such burial took place.

The fairy tale story of bin Laden’s murder by SEAL Team Six served to end the challenge by disappointed Democrats to Obama’s nomination for a second term. It also freed the “war on terror” from the bin Laden constraint. Washington wanted to attack Libya, Syria, and Iran, countries in which bin Laden was known not to have organizations, and the succession of faked bin Laden videos, in which bin Laden grew progressively younger as the fake bin Laden claimed credit for each successive attack, had lost credibility among experts.

Watching the twin towers and WTC 7 come down, it was obvious to me that the buildings were not falling down as a result of structural damage. When it became clear that the White House had blocked an independent investigation of the only three steel skyscrapers in world history to collapse as a result of low temperature office fires, it was apparent that there was a coverup.

After 13 years people at home and abroad find the government’s story less believable.

The case made by independent experts is now so compelling that mainstream media has opened to it. Here is Richard Gage of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth on C-SPAN:

After years of persistence a group in New York has secured the necessary number of valid signatures to put on the ballot a vote to investigate the cause of the collapse of the three WTC buildings. The official account, if correct, means that existing fire and building codes are insufficient to protect the public and that all other steel high rise structures are subject to the same failure. The group has been clever to frame the issue in terms of public safety and not in terms of 9/11 truth.

New York authorities, of course, continue to oppose the initiative. The question now rests on a judge’s ruling. It is difficult to imagine a judge going against the government in such a major way, but the group will have made the point that the government has no confidence in the truth of its own story.

Over these 13 years, physicists, chemists, architects, engineers, and first responders have provided massive evidence that completely disproves the official account of the failure of the three skyscrapers. The response to experts has been for non-experts to call experts “conspiracy theorists.” In other words, the defenders of the government’s story have no scientific or factual basis on which to stand. So they substitute name-calling.

9/11 was used to fundamentally alter the nature of the US government and its relationship to the American people. Unaccountable executive power has replaced due process and the checks and balances established by the US Constitution. In the name of National Security, executive power knows no restraints. Essentially, Americans today have no rights if the government targets them. Those Americans born after 9/11 were born into a different country from the rest of us. Having never experienced constitutional government, they will not know what they have lost.

The anthrax attacks of October 2001 have been forgotten, but Professor Graeme MacQueen in The 2001 Anthrax Deception (Clarity Press, 2014) shows that the anthrax attacks played an essential role in setting the stage for the government’s acquisition of unaccountable police state power. Two Democratic Senate committee chairmen, Thomas Daschle and Patrick Leahy, were disturbed by the Bush regime’s overreach for carte blanche power, and were in a position to block the coming police state legislation and the ability of the executive branch alone to take America to war.

Both senators received anthrax letters, as did major news organizations. The TV network news anchors, such as Dan Rather, who compared the collapse of WTC skyscrapers to buildings brought down by controlled demolition, had not yet been fired by Republicans on framed-up charges.

Initially, the anthrax letters, which caused the deaths of some USPS employees, were seen as the second stage of the 9/11 attack. Fear multiplied. The senators and media shut up. Then it was discovered that the anthrax was a unique kind produced only by a US government military facility.

The response to this monkey wrench thrown into the government’s propaganda, was the FBI’s frame-up of a dead man, Bruce Edwards Ivins, who had been employed in the military lab that produced the anthrax and was driven to suicide by the false charges. The dead man’s colleagues did not believe one word of the government’s false story, and nothing in the dead man’s past indicated any motive or instability that would have led him to such a deed.

Initially, the US government tried to frame up Steven Jay Hatfill, but despite the best efforts of the New York Times and Nicholas Kristof the attempt to frame Hatfill failed. Hatfill received $5 million from the US government for the false accusation that ruined his life. So the corrupt US government moved on to Ivins.

Ivins was dead and couldn’t defend himself, but his colleagues did.

The entire episode stinks to high heaven. Justice is something that exists outside the borders of the United States. Never expect to find justice within the United States.

Most Americans are unaware of the extent to which the federal government owns the experts who can contradict its fairy tales. For example, no competent physicist can possibly believe the official story of the destruction of the three WTC buildings. But physics departments in US universities are heavily dependent on federal money. Any physicist who speaks his mind jeopardizes not only his own career but also the career of all of his colleagues. Physicist Steven Jones, who first pointed to the use of thermite in the destruction of the two towers had to agree to having his university buy out his tenure or his university was faced with losing all federal financing.

The same constraints operate in the private sector. High rise architects and structural engineers who express doubts about the official explanation of the collapse of three skyscrapers are viewed by potential clients as Muslim apologists and conspiracy kooks. The clients, of course, have no expert knowledge with which to assess the issue, but they are indoctrinated with ceaseless, endless, repetition that 9/11 was Osama bin Laden’s attack on America. Their indoctrination makes them immune to facts.

The 9/11 lie has persisted for 13 years. Millions of Muslims have paid for this lie with their lives, the destruction of their families, and with their dislocation. Most Americans remain comfortable with the fact that their government has destroyed in whole or part seven countries based on a lie Washington told to cover up an inside job that launched the crazed neoconservatives’ drive for Washington’s World Empire.

Why Does the Government Need Guillotines?

September 10th, 2014 by

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2013/06/29/why-does-the-government-need-guillotines/

 By Dave Hodges

9-10-2014 2-33-14 PM9-10-2014 2-34-08 PM

When retired FBI agent, the now deceased Ted Gunderson,reportedly told a gathering of militia members that the federal government had set up 1,000 internment camps across the country, I had no trouble believing his statement because there is ample documentation to support his statement (e.g. REX 84Operation Garden Plot and now the NDAA). However, when Gunderson reported that the federal government was storing over 500,000 caskets outside of Atlanta, I also knew he was accurate on this point because Sherrie Wilcox found the evidence in the adjacent photo. However, when I heard that Gunderson was accusing the government of storing 30,000 guillotines, I thought he had lost his mind.

Why Would the Government Want to Store Guillotines?

Gunderson told various patriot groups that the guillotines were being stored for the day that the government declares martial law and moves in to round up and execute American dissenters. Gunderson prophetically told patriot groups that the federal government was going to keep track of all of us. The last statement has indeed proven accurate given the recent Snowden/NSA scandal.

Can somebody please explain to me why the government would need to order 30,000 guillotines? For what legitimate purpose could these tools of execution be utilized?

9-10-2014 2-35-49 PM

The guillotine was invented by a Frenchmen named Dr. Guillotine. The guillotine reached the height of its popularity when it was mainly used in the French Revolution to eliminate any potential opposition from people with “dangerous ideas.” 

The guillotine has never been used inside of the United States. The United States has executed people by firing squad, hanging, the electric chair and lethal injection. The US has never executed a convicted criminal through the use of the guillotine.

Given these facts, then why in God’s good name would this government import 30,000 guillotines as Gunderson claimed? Oh, I know that some of the sheep are now looking up from the ground and have just said “there aren’t are any guillotines in the United States.” Then please tell me, sheep of America, why did Representative Doug Teper, of the Georgia Legislative Assembly (Democrat) introduced a bill which will supplant the method of execution, the electric chair, with the guillotine?

9-10-2014 2-36-59 PM

Have you ever heard the allegations which accuse some doctors, primarily in China, of killing patients in order to sell their organs on the black market? After you read the following paragraphs, you may conclude that those rumors are true.  When Representative Teper was asked about his motivation to exclusively use the guillotine to execute death row inmates, he said, it would allow for death-row inmates asorgan donors. The very spooky Teper further reasoned that the “Blade makes a clean cut and leaves vital organs intact.”  I will be happy to let this statement speak for itself. Below is a draft of the legislation.

HB 1274 – Death penalty; guillotine provisions

SECTION 1.

  1- 8  The General Assembly finds that while prisoners condemned to
  1- 9  death may wish to donate one or more of their organs for
  1-10  transplant, any such desire is thwarted by the fact that
  1-11  electrocution makes all such organs unsuitable for
  1-12  transplant. The intent of the General Assembly in enacting
  1-13  this legislation is to provide for a method of execution
  1-14  which is compatible with the donation of organs by a
  1-15  condemned prisoner.

                         SECTION 2.

  1-16  Article 2 of Chapter 10 of Title 17 of the Official Code of
  1-17  Georgia Annotated, relating to the death penalty generally,
  1-18  is amended by striking in its entirety Code Section
  1-19  17-10-38, relating to death sentences generally, and
  1-20  inserting in lieu thereof the following:

  1-21    “17-10-38. (Index)

  1-22    (a) All persons who have been convicted of a capital
  1-23    offense and have had imposed upon them a sentence of death
  1-24    shall, at the election of the condemned, suffer such
  1-25    punishment either by electrocution or by guillotine.  If
  1-26    the condemned fails to make an election by the thirtieth
  1-27    day preceding the date scheduled for execution, punishment
  1-28    shall be by electrocution.

  1-29    (b) In all cases in which the defendant is sentenced to be
  1-30    electrocuted executed, it shall be the duty of the trial
  1-31    judge in passing sentence to direct that the defendant be
                                 -1- (Index)

                                                  LC 21 3643

  2- 1    delivered to the Department of Corrections for
  2- 2    electrocution execution at a state correctional
  2- 3    institution designated by the department.”

                         SECTION 3.

  2- 4  Said article is further amended by striking in its entirety
  2- 5  Code Section 17-10-44, relating to death chamber apparatus
  2- 6  and related matters, and inserting in lieu thereof the
  2- 7  following:

  2- 8    “17-10-44. (Index)

  2- 9    The Department of Corrections shall provide a death
  2-10    chamber and all necessary apparatus, machinery, and
  2-11    appliances for inflicting the penalty of death by
  2-12    electrocution or by guillotine.”

 

Where would the proposed Georgia Legislature guillotines have come from unless Gunderson was correct in that 15,000 are being stored in Montana and 15,000 are being stored in Georgia?

An Efficient Killing Machine

Has anyone bothered to do the math? A single guillotine reportedly can chop off the heads of about 100 people per hour. In one hour, the federal government has the capacity to execute as many as three million people. In one ten hour day, 30 million people could be executed by way of the guillotine.

Other Alphabet Soup Agents Speak Out

9-10-2014 2-38-24 PM

Ted Gunderson is not the only former alphabet soup agent  to tell all about guillotines. The late Bill Pawelec, ex-CIA, was a close friend of mine and eventually became the significant other of the News Director for The Common Sense Show, Annie DeRiso. Pawelec told both Annie and I on several occasions that guillotines were being stored on several military bases. The late A.C. Griffith, ex-NSA, said the same on more than one occasion on my talk show. In light of these confirmations from known and from public sources, as well as the proposed legislation of Rep. Teper to introduce the use of guillotines on American soil, I believe that there is no question that the story is true.

Implications

 

 We already know that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition to go with their purchase of  2700 armored personnel carriers. Do you realize that this is enough ammo to fight  a war for about seven years and that there are enough DHS personnel carriers to allocate over 50 per state? Can you imagine if they were concentrated in their distribution patterns? This would be the equivalent of an invading army as DHS goes from house to house and seizes dissidents by the millions and America will soon have their own version of the French Revolution

Since this story broke, I have asked the question why guillotines? I have talked to several of my off-the-record sources and the consensus is frightening.  Everyone that I have spoken to agrees that the guillotine is highly efficient.  Most everyone I have talked with stated that organ harvesting will indeed be even a bigger business and the guillotine is the most efficient killing machine to that end. Some of my sources stated that the next phase of the transhumanism experiments and developments requires a severed human head to facilitate the mixing of humans and animals into one sentient being. Further, futuristic DARPA robots will have human heads after the initial purge and subsequent executions (see photo below).  This makes sense because after the head is severed, the eyes blink and signs of life continue for up to a minute. This would allow a team to “freeze”and to preserve the head for whatever purpose. And just as frightening, I was told that some of Satanic rituals require severed human heads and we know the global elite, in large part, are indeed Satanists.

9-10-2014 2-39-26 PM

Can you tell the real person from the DARPA produced robot? Will human looking robots replace interim human slaves?

I can understand people being skeptical about the guillotines because my first reaction was to reject the notion under my personal veil of cognitive dissonance. Yet, the emerging facts speak for themselves.

Although I did not know Gunderson personally, I did know Bill Pawelec as a close friend and I was well acquainted with Griffith. And even if Pawelec and Griffith were jointly mistaken on this issue, how would one explain away Teper’s efforts to introduce the guillotine into the Georgia justice system?

The end game implications are frightening. When we add the topic of guillotines to what we already know about 2.2 billion rounds of DHS ammo and 2700 armored DHS personnel carriers, why should this be so hard to believe? How can take the fact that DHS has armed to the teeth against Americans and are planning to murder us in horrific ways as anything but a declaration of war?
Be prepared to be shocked as you watch the following chilling report on the possession and intent of the military with regard to the use of guillotines.

The 64 million dollar question is who is the government planning to use these guillotines on? Perhaps the following scripture from Revelations speaks to this point.

And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”Revelation 20:4

An Open Letter To My Friends In Law Enforcement

September 8th, 2014 by

http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/Articles/tabid/109/ID/1230/An-Open-Letter-To-My-Friends-In-Law-Enforcement.aspx

8-28-2014 8-23-06 AM

By Chuck Baldwin

Published: Thursday, September 4, 2014

When I was a youngster, my dad told me, “Son, a policeman is your friend.” Through his jail and prison ministry, Dad became a personal friend of our county sheriff (two of them, as a matter of fact)–as well as scores of deputies and city police officers. For all of my life, I have taken Dad’s maxim to heart. In fact, for all of my teen years, law enforcement was my chosen profession. I wanted to go into law enforcement real bad. It took a divine call to Gospel ministry to change my plans.

Throughout my adult life, I have enjoyed the friendship of many peace officers. The county sheriff where I lived in Florida made me an honorary deputy sheriff. I still have the credentials to prove it. I count scores (and maybe hundreds) of law enforcement officers around the country as friends. In fact, there are scores of peace officers across the country that financially support my work. I have had kinfolk serve in various positions of law enforcement. Anyone who knows anything about me knows I have been a law and order guy all of my life.

I am as much of a red-blooded American patriot as one will find in this country. I believe in God, the Bible, the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. I believe in liberty, justice, and independence. I am a Christian and a pastor. Through my radio talk show and syndicated column, I have helped to elect many liberty-minded candidates to municipal, county, State, and federal offices. And, like Mike Huckabee who is a former pastor, I, too, ran for the office of President of the United States.

With the above said, it is extremely important that this letter be written, because so many honorable American traditions and customs are being radically and rapidly changed–including the philosophies, standard operating procedures, and rules of engagement of law enforcement. And the change is not for the better.

Let me just be blunt: ever since Ronald Reagan left office, both Republican and Democrat presidential administrations–along with both Republican and Democrat congresses–in Washington, D.C., are turning the United States of America into a giant Police State. And that means that our local and State police agencies are being transformed before our very eyes into the enforcement arm of this burgeoning Police State. And one of the biggest reasons for this growing threat to our liberties is that it seems that you–our local and State police officers and sheriff’s deputies–do not understand that you are the ones that are being used to create this nefarious Police State.

I am talking about otherwise honest and honorable men and women. I am talking about the friendly policeman, sheriff’s deputy, or State highway patrolman who lives across the street from us. I’m talking about the fellow Christian police officer we go to church with. It seems that the vast majority of you men and women in blue do not comprehend the way you are being used to create a Police State in our country. And until you awaken to this reality, nothing is going to be done to stop it.

The totalitarian regimes of history could not have succeeded in implementing their enslavements over the people without the submission and cooperation of the citizen-policemen within their countries. Nor can a Police State be constructed in America without your submission and cooperation. My concern is, the Police State is already being constructed in this country and most of you don’t seem to even realize it–or don’t want to realize it. In fact, some of you become angry with people like me when we try to warn the American people about it. This shows that you have already become acclimated and accepting of it.

Here is the problem: in today’s America, virtually every police agency and sheriff’s office is being dictated to, intimidated by, and bribed by the federal government. Much of the policies you operate under–and training you receive–comes straight out of the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Justice Department. If you are a police officer in a State or city that does not recognize the right of the people to keep and bear arms, you are already the enforcement arm of draconian, dictatorial government. You routinely put people in jail or prison for merely exercising the fundamental, God-given right to keep and BEAR arms. How can you live with yourself?

The concern that you, our friends and neighbors in law enforcement, are being turned into agents of oppression is very justified. The warning signs are ubiquitous.

I was told by a Marine Corps officer, who was there, that last year Marines at Twentynine Palms, California, were asked in a survey if they were ordered to turn their weapons on the American citizenry for the purpose of gun confiscation, would they comply with the order. Sixty-six percent of them said yes, they would. Two-thirds! When this same question was asked of Marines at Twentynine Palms back in the 90s, 26% of the Marines said yes. This is a very disturbing trend.

How many of you men and women of law enforcement would respond similarly? Again, in states such as California, Massachusetts, and Connecticut–and in cities such as New York and Chicago–this is already standard operating procedure. People are routinely arrested for merely possessing a firearm, with no harm being inflicted or even threatened. Plus, all it takes is for some kind of riot or “national emergency,” and the rest of the Bill of Rights immediately go out the window.

Look at Boston after the marathon bombing. The city was turned instantly into a Nazi-style Police State. People’s homes were invaded without warrant; people were manhandled; police dogs were turned loose on people without cause; guns by the hundreds were pointed at the people of Boston by police. No occupying military force in the world was any more efficient at locking down a large city as were the police agencies of the city of Boston and the State of Massachusetts.

Look what happened in Ferguson, Missouri. Regardless of whether the shooting of the young man was justified or not (along with everyone else, I am waiting for a proper and thorough investigation to provide an honest answer), the way police reacted to, what was at first, lawful protests, was unconscionable. Policemen training their firearms on innocent American citizens, including journalists, and threatening to blow their brains out is NOT acceptable behavior in a free society. Police agencies using military vehicles and military attack aircraft against American citizens is NOT acceptable behavior in a free society. Police-state tactics only served to exacerbate and inflame the situation in Ferguson, not alleviate it.

I lived on the Gulf Coast when Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. Police officers went door-to-door confiscating the firearms of law-abiding, innocent citizens in the aftermath of that storm. This was done while lawless gangs were allowed to freely roam the streets of the city inflicting merciless atrocities on vulnerable residents. And the State of Louisiana is one of our more gun-friendly states.

Look at what happens more and more frequently at routine traffic stops. My mother-in-law (who is in her eighties) was recently pulled over for a routine traffic stop here in Montana. (She must have been pulled over for driving too SLOW.) Two officers came out of the police car, and one of them was actually pointing his pistol at her head. Her vehicle was not suspected of having been part of a felony. They ran her plates. They knew who she was. To point a gun at a harmless, innocent senior citizen–who is suspected of no violent crime–is the mark of a burgeoning Police State.

Policemen training their weapons on the public have become almost routine nowadays. Even many minor incidents will often result in SWAT teams being deployed. In fact, Eastern Kentucky University professor Peter Kraska documents research showing, “There has been more than a 1,400% increase in the total number of police paramilitary deployments, or callouts, between 1980 and 2000. Today, an estimated 45,000 SWAT-team deployments are conducted yearly among those departments surveyed; in the early 1980s there was an average of about 3,000.”

Militarization And Policing–It’s Relevance To 21st Century

Has violent crime increased 1,400 percent during that time? Not at all. In fact, for the last several years, violent crime has been decreasing to the point that currently it is at record lows. So, how can the need for SWAT teams increase by 1,400 percent? It is the result of Washington, D.C., deliberately militarizing our police agencies. Give them military equipment, weapons, training, etc., and they will start acting like soldiers not policemen.

It all begins with philosophy. The philosophy being drilled into police officers today is that of an “us versus them” mentality. In the eyes of a Police State, we are not citizens to be protected; we are enemy targets who are guilty until proven innocent. Plus, the phrase that we hear constantly repeated today by law enforcement personnel and spokesmen is “the safety of the officer.”

Wait a minute! The sworn duty of a police officer is to obey the Constitution (including the Bill of Rights), which is designed to protect the rights, liberties, and safely of the American people. The role of the police officer is to protect the safety of the public. Any man or woman who volunteers to put on a badge should be consciously willing to put his or her life on the line to protect the public. That’s what their job is all about. And no one forces them to take this risk; they take it of their own volition. Of course you men and women of law enforcement want to go home at the end of your shift. But so do the people of your community.

Policemen are not the only ones who face hostility and threats of violence. I have had my life threatened too many times to count. I have been shot at. (I’ve talked with several retired police officers who have told me that they never had to pull their gun during their entire career, nor were they ever fired at.) I have had my family threatened. And none of us wear Kevlar vests and helmets and can call backup with the push of a button (calling 911 is not the same as a policeman calling for back up–not even close).

If the safety of the officer is the primary duty of policemen, they should just shoot suspects on sight and eliminate the threat before it exists. And that is pretty much what they do in totalitarian countries. But this is America where the rule of law and the rights of the individual reign supreme. In a free country, people are judged to be innocent until proven guilty. Plus, the only lawful reason a police officer has to fire his weapon at someone is for the same reason that the rest of us can do so: for self-defense against an imminent threat to their (our) lives.

Over 5,000 American citizens have been shot and killed by police since 09/11/01. Based on official statistical data, we are eight times more likely to be killed by a police officer than we are by a terrorist. Currently, somewhere between 500-1,000 Americans are killed each year by policemen. By comparison, during 2012, 120 officers were killed in the line of duty.

“Despite far fewer officers dying in the line of duty compared with American citizens, police departments are not only increasing their use of protective and highly volatile gear, but are increasingly setting aside a portion of their budget to invest in new technology such as drones, night vision goggles, remote robots, surveillance cameras, license plate readers and armored vehicles that amount to unarmed tanks.”

U.S. Police Have Killed Over 5,000 Civilians Since 9/11

Sadly, police agencies and county attorney’s offices have a dismal record of thoroughly investigating police shootings (or even police brutality charges). Mostly, the word of the officer is accepted almost without question. Plus, it is common knowledge that many officers carry “throw down” weapons to alleviate incrimination. Furthermore, police officers are seldom willing to testify against a fellow officer–even when they know the officer has committed a crime.

It is past time that independent, citizen review boards with full investigative capability and with authority to begin disciplinary measures are required for all police shootings. I further recommend that every citizen install surveillance cameras inside their vehicles. Any government that thinks it needs to closely monitor our every move should be closely monitored by us.

A recent example of excessive use of force and the police-state mentality was prominently displayed in Boynton Beach, Florida. After questioning why the officers were ordering them around and starting to video-record the officers during a traffic stop, the policemen became enraged, began physically assaulting the young men, and one officer pointed his pistol at them threatening to immediately shoot them. Granted, the young men acted rudely and disrespectfully. But since when in America is cockiness and rudeness a potential death sentence?

But the worst part of the story came afterward when the chief of police issued a statement defending the conduct of the officers. Chief Jeffrey Katz viewed the video tape (recorded by a passenger in the car) and said the following: “When I watch this video, I don’t see a car full of young men who are behaving in a manner consistent with FEAR OF THE POLICE.” (Emphasis added)

‘I’ll Put A Round In Your A** So Quick’: Florida Police Chief Defends Cop Who Threatened To Shoot Young Black Man Because He Filmed His Partner Throwing Him On The Ground

Ladies and gentlemen, that is not the statement of an American peace officer; that is the statement of a Nazi Brown Shirt. This is what happens when Washington, D.C., turns our local and State law enforcement officers into quasi-military units from a national police force. The police chief and his officers were angry that the young men didn’t FEAR the police enough.

So, that’s it. We are supposed to FEAR the police? Really? Then, pray tell, who are the police supposed to fear? My father didn’t teach me to fear the police. He taught me to respect the police. And he taught me that the police were my friends. He did not teach me that I had to fear for my rights and my very life every time I’m pulled over for a traffic stop. And that’s not the way that Sheriff Cliff Arnold’s deputies behaved while I was growing up.

The Department of Homeland Security and Defense Department are all but forcing local and State police agencies to accept military equipment, tanks, attack helicopters, machine guns, and more. Last year alone, the Pentagon gave half a billion dollars of military gear to local police agencies. They are supplying suggested training procedures, complete with lists of the people whom they (Washington, D.C.) considers “dangerous.”

Most of the intelligence that police agencies receive comes from the DHS-Fusion centers. Reading these memos is like reading the propaganda being spewed out by the radical, ultra-left wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). And in truth, much of the information that the Fusion centers distribute are carbon copies of SPLC propaganda.

For example, when I first moved to Montana four years ago, a local police lieutenant sent a memo to the city’s police officers warning them about me. The memo accused me of things like being part of potentially dangerous militia groups, etc. He took words from off of my website and said they showed that I was an “extremist.” What words, you ask? Words like: Liberty Fellowship, Black Regiment Pastors, Patriot Businesses, etc. Where did the lieutenant get that idea? He didn’t know me from Job’s turkey. He got it through a DHS Fusion center memo.

I later had a lunch meeting with the police lieutenant in the presence of a retired police officer and tried to assure him as to my character and integrity. I even showed him my honorary sheriff’s deputy credentials. He admitted that he had not even read the content of my website and was merely going by the titles, which leads me to believe he may not have even logged onto the website at all but was merely taking the Fusion center report as “gospel.” And, no, as far as I know, he did not send out a retraction to his officers. Thankfully, I have had several policemen and sheriff’s deputies tell me personally how disgusted they were at the lieutenant’s unfounded character assassination against me and that they appreciate the work I am doing.

In fact, I have had countless police officers and sheriff’s deputies around the country write and tell me about similar memos they have received from DHS. I have even had deputies drive up to me and show me the memos they had received on the computers in their squad cars with the same kind of propaganda.

My friends in law enforcement, can you not see what is happening? Can you not see that you are being brainwashed into a police-state mentality where constitutional rights are seldom considered, especially in emergencies? All the feds must do is create some sort of national or local emergency and, presto, you become instruments of a Police State. Do you not see the trend?

By an overwhelming majority, your fellow citizens are NOT your enemies. We are your neighbors, fellow church members, etc. Are you going to let the machinations of would-be tyrants in Washington, D.C., and even in your own State and community, turn the honorable profession of peace officer into an “us versus them” Gestapo-like Police State?

True story: here in Montana, a small town police officer, who is assigned to the traffic division, was asked to speak to a church group. Mostly, he gives out traffic citations for minor violations. As he began his remarks, he said, “I am a cop; I work every day among the dregs of society.” Really? People who get parking tickets and speeding tickets are the “dregs” of society? That, my friends, is the mark of an unfolding police-state mentality. And, remember, this is from the heart and lips of a professing Christian.

As honest and honorable as most of you men and women of law enforcement are, it is time that you come to grips with the fact that the current system emanating from Washington, D.C., controlling the attitudes, training, and tactics of police agencies is practically a carbon copy of history’s most notorious totalitarian regimes. And if the Nuremberg trials proved anything, they proved that “I was just following orders” is never justification for ignoring the greater moral laws of God and Nature.

My dad told me that the policeman is my friend. I would still like to believe that; but it behooves my friends in law enforcement to prove it to me by personally making up your minds to vehemently resist the current trend of militarizing your profession and of turning our once-free republic into a Police State. After all, you want us to be your friends, too, right?

U. S. Army Plans to Battle Anti-Government Dissidents In “Megacities”

September 4th, 2014 by

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/u-s-army-plans-to-battle-anti-government-dissidents-in-megacities_09022014

By Paul Joseph Watson

The U.S. Army is preparing to fight political dissidents who challenge the power of the state as “megacities” become the battleground of the future, according to a new report in the Army Times.

The article details how the Army’s Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC) worked with US Army Special Operations Command, the chief of staff’s Strategic Studies Group and the UK’s Ministry of Defence earlier this year to wargame the future of armed combat, which will revolve around the neutralization of groups “who can influence the lives of the population while undermining the authority of the state,” a chillingly vague description which could easily be applied to political dissidents.

The plan foresees an unprecedented realignment of U.S. military strategy focused around putting “boots on the ground” in megacities to deal with “politically dispossessed” populations while relying on “more lethal and more autonomous” methods.

“It is inevitable that at some point the United States Army will be asked to operate in a megacity and currently the Army is ill-prepared to do so,” asserted a report by Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno’s Strategic Studies Group, while Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster warned that the Army will increasingly have to expand its presence to battle an enemy which operates in “other contested spaces like organized crime and politics.”

The report also notes how the Army will utilize directed energy weapons which “would allow U.S. to have direct-fire capabilities with significant logistics reduction, and to counter enemy long-range missile capability.”

The article also cites a recent report by the Australian Army which identifies the fact that “these cities represent the battlefields of the future.”

Confirmation that the U.S. Army is preparing to fight disaffected groups and individuals who attempt to ‘undermine the authority of the state’, which could apply to a whole host of perfectly legal political activities, is particularly concerning given the recent militarized police response to unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.

A 2012 study by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland which was funded by the Department of Homeland Security lists Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty” and “suspicious of centralized federal authority” alongside violent terrorist groups.

Will citizens who ‘undermine the authority of the state’ by espousing these beliefs also be a future target for the U.S. Army under this new doctrine?

Earlier this year we also highlighted how the U.S. Army built a 300 acre ‘fake city’ in Virginia complete with a sports stadium, bank, school, and an underground subway in order to train for unspecified future combat scenarios. The city included a Christian chapel and subway signs in English, suggesting it was intended to double as a domestic town in addition to an overseas location.

The Army Times report is also disconcerting in light of a recently uncovered U.S. Army training document which detailed preparations for “full scale riots” within the United States during which troops may be forced to engage in a “lethal response” to deal with crowds of demonstrators.

As with previous examples, the manual made it clear that such operations were being planned not just for foreign occupations but for inside the “continental United States (CONUS)” in the event of “unruly and violent crowds” where it is “necessary to quell riots and restore public order.”

The document also describes the deployment of a “lethal response” directed against “unarmed civilians,” including “sniper response” and “small arms direct fire,” while making reference to domestic political upheavals such as the 1999 demonstrations against the WTO in Seattle.

While the U.S. border remains wide open amidst reports of ISIS insurgents planning attacks, the fact that the security apparatus of the United States is more concerned with taking on political dissidents inside megacities is likely to prompt fresh outrage.

ISIS Barbarians At Our Gates

According to a release by Judicial Watch, ISIS is operating in Ciudad Juarez, located in Mexico along the US border just across from El Paso, Texas:

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source. “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.

ISIS is here… They are a clear and present danger now on our porous Southern border thanks to the feeble leadership of our Marxist President. Judicial Watch issued an urgent warning from what Tom Fitton described as ‘golden sources,’ who claimed there was an imminent threat of car bomb attacks from Juarez across our border. Our government immediately denied there was any threat – nothing to see here. To which Fitton roundly stated, they’re lying to you and being oh, so dishonest. Shocker there. Other reports cited social media warnings from ISIS militants and an online video showing James O’Keefe in a bin Laden mask sneaking into the US from Mexico. That’s hokey – you can’t lay that at O’Keefe’s feet when the entire world has known our border has been wide open forever, just begging for a terrorist attack. O’Keefe merely highlighted the threat.

What’s more… DHS surely knew Judicial Watch was about to release the warning:

The Department of Homeland Security quickly denied claims on Friday from a watchdog group that the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) has militants stationed in Juarez, Mexico who plan an ‘imminent’ attack against the United States.

A DHS spokesman was bewildered, telling MailOnline that ‘we are aware of absolutely nothing credible to substantiate this claim’ made by Judicial Watch, a center-right group.

‘In Mexico?’ the official said on the phone. ‘I haven’t seen that at all.’

An hour before Judicial Watch’s report surfaced, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said publicly that his agency and the FBI ‘are unaware of any specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland’ from the terror network.

And during a late-morning media briefing, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said flatly that ‘the most detailed intelligence assessment that I can offer from here is that there is no evidence or indication right now that [ISIS] is actively plotting to attack the United States homeland. That’s true right now.’

Earnest better check to see if his pants are on fire, because he knows that is a crock of you-know-what. ISIS is here already — and I mean here in the US with sleeper cells. Don’t fall for the ‘incompetence’ line here – these asshats know good and well what is going on and are looking for political cover before it hits the fan. As Fitton pointed out, ‘it’s a non-denial denial.’ And here is the quote of the month and I love this from Tom Fitton:

Citing Johnson’s use of words like ‘credible’ and ‘specific,’ Fitton said, ‘You could drive a truck bomb through that loophole. DHS has not denied our story.’

Judicial Watch is not disclosing their sources out of fear for their safety and rightly so. A warning bulletin of an imminent terrorist attack was issued to ‘agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies,’ instructing them ‘to aggressively work all possible leads and sources’ to head it off. Good luck with that since we don’t search trucks crossing the border. The commander of Fort Bliss has also been allegedly briefed on this. What do you say we shut down the freaking border before a nuke goes off in Texas or Arizona? Hell… I don’t even want one going off in California, although it is tempting.

This is not a game… it is deadly serious. If we don’t stop this, a lot of people are going to die and it will happen over and over. And guess what? Obama and Holder will just let it — I’m sure they have a ton of excuses all lined up as the blood and body parts flow. They want the death, destruction and mayhem this will bring. And Obama’s Jayvee has now joined with al-Qaeda and are actively planning a party on or around 9-11. Bring out the party favors and the Burqas boys… it’s Jihad time on the Southern border.

There are now multiple sources (Fox News, Breitbart, Judicial Watch) out there with multiple bulletins that are screaming something very wicked this way comes and fast. In response to a dire and elevated risk, what does our esteemed leader do? Nothing, except maybe golf a little more.

Here’s a map of the threatened area:

9-1-2014 12-08-59 PM

I have friends and family near there. If something that could have been prevented goes down, there will be literal hell to pay.

I trust the word of Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch. Remember, these are the guys that have uncovered the liars at the IRS and DOJ. If they say this is imminent and urgent, then I would tighten my belt and get ready for a probable impact. They didn’t release this lightly.

More from Fitton:

‘I can’t say who in Washington knows about this,’ Fitton said. ‘But to be sure, this is exactly the type of information that this administration would have an interest in minimizing, downplaying and withholding, to distract from the disaster on the border and the national security threat there.’

But Earnest, President Barack Obama’s chief spokesman and lead sycophant, told reporters on Friday that America’s border crisis is over ‘for now.’ Right… Nothing to see here. Ignore the violence, the bodies and the bombs. I mean the FBI’s terrorist assessment doesn’t even mention Islamic terrorism, so surely it can’t touch us here (again) at home. Must be those damned white Tea Party people, right? Well, our government may not (cough) believe they exist, but radical Islamists certainly believe in their existence and are coming for us.

Oh, and they are clever little buggers. In Syria, a laptop was found that came from ISIS and on that computer were instructions on how to weaponize bubonic plague in bombs. Hmmmm. Choose your poison guys — biological warfare, nukes or just exploding death. ISIS has got you covered.

Allen West states it bluntly once again and hits the nail on the head (if only he were our President — sigh):

Here’s what the laptop of doom suggests: “Use small grenades with the virus, and throw them in closed areas like metros, soccer stadiums, or entertainment centers. Best to do it next to the air-conditioning. It also can be used during suicide operations.”

The longer ISIS is allowed to exist — and 110 pinprick airstrikes is not degrading their capability — the more time they will have to develop their schemes and plans. Time is not on our side, but it seems that Obama believes he can just dither all the day long. Or perhaps, Obama doesn’t really want to deter ISIS — and certainly not attack them. You have to ask, if Obama has been receiving his daily national security briefs, why would he allow this threat to develop and metastasize into what it is today? Or maybe he does not take any security briefs at all? How could any American president allow such a direct threat to exist and publicly admit he has no plan?

Well, Mr. President Barack Hussein Obama, ISIS has a plan and their plan is not based upon what they will not do, or aren’t willing to do. Obama is conveying the message that he wants to avoid engaging and fighting ISIS. ISIS is conveying the message that they will kill anything and anyone who stands in their way — the way of restoring Islamic dominance.

So, whose side is Obama on?

This is directly Obama’s doing and fault and can be laid squarely at his feet. He brought on the border crisis intentionally to do away with our borders and sovereignty. Along with the Democrats and many of the Republicans, he has refused to secure our border and enforce the law in the name of voting demographics and cheap labor. Jerry Brown has all but given California back to Mexico. The Border Patrol is handcuffed and can’t do their job… orders have been issued to release illegal immigrants, including violent felons, from jail… 10′s of thousands of illegal immigrant children are being bussed to every corner of the US, with special emphasis on Conservative areas to change the voting block there… violence, drug trafficking and human slavery have skyrocketed on the border and Americans are told that our borders have never been safer or more secure. That we should do this for the children and trust our glorious leaders. Lenin and Stalin would have been impressed.

Saudi Arabia is now warning that there will be attacks here in the West within a month or two, if we do not confront the enemy and put them down:

Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) (AFP) – King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is “rapid” action.

“If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,” he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.

“Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East,” said the king who was speaking at a welcoming ceremony on Friday for new ambassadors, including a new envoy from Saudi ally the United States.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is warning that ISIS is actively promoting and encouraging supporters to take advantage of the porous Texas-Mexico border to carry out terrorist attacks against US citizens – they also released this in a document yesterday. Texas knows what is at their doorstep and what is coming and they are getting ready for a fight. We all should be getting ready, because the time has finally arrived that fighting Islamic terrorists will be the greatest battle of our lives. It will be a fight to the death – Islam against everyone else and it will be brutal. Radical Islamists have no pity, only the will to conquer, rape and pillage.

Britain has raised their terror level to severe — one step below critical. Even the Brits realize that things are about to get very, very real. ISIS is also threatening the Pope and Italy is on alert. Let’s not forget the million or so Christians, Muslims and others who have been slaughtered in all of this as the Caliphate sweeps the planet. It’s only getting started folks. You want a plague? Well, look no further.

The terrorist chatter on communication channels and social media is off the charts. It far eclipses the traffic pre-9-11. Obama won’t raise our threat level because frankly, he doesn’t give a crap. Americans might want to move to do something before a nuke goes off on the White House lawn and the black flag of ISIS is raised there for realsies.

The ISIS barbarians are at our gates and Obama is holding those gates wide open… maybe it’s time for the American people to bypass the Executive Branch, just as Obama bypasses Congress, to protect our borders and our people from Islamic terrorists and Jihadist hordes. I say bomb the asshats back to the Stone Age wherever we find them. Level the playing field and leave nothing but rubble and dust.

Rogue Cops Restrained Castle Doctrine Now Applies To Indiana Cops

August 30th, 2014 by

http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2014/02/state-passes-law-to-legalize-

shooting-police-it-found-self-defense-is-a-natural-right-video-2890754.html

8-28-2014 12-33-10 PM

By Josey Wales

Indiana passes rational legislation concerning ‘public servants’ unlawfully entering another person’s private property.

Its Now LEGAL to SHOOT POLICE in Indiana if you believe The Cop Is Unlawfully Entering Your Home! 

It’s becoming a daily occurrence when we see examples of cops breaking into the wrong house and shooting the family dog, or worse, killing a member of the family.

Now Indiana has taken action to “recognize the unique character of a citizen’s home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant.”

Indiana’s special amendment is no revolutionary new thought, only common sense.

Self-defense is a natural/God given right; when laws are in place that protect incompetent police by removing a persons ability to protect one’s self, simply because the aggressor has a badge and a uniform, is a human rights violation. Indiana is leading the way by recognizing this right and creating legislation to protect it.

Of course cops have already begun to fear monger the passage of this bill, “If I pull over a car and I walk up to it and the guy shoots me, he’s going to say, ‘Well, he was trying to illegally enter my property,’ ” said Joseph Hubbard, 40, president of Jeffersonville Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 100. “Somebody is going get away with killing a cop because of this law.”  Well now imagine how the victims of police abuse/murder feel. Welcome to the real world, if it is going to take the police to fear the people before they cease and desist to violate their oaths to office, then so be it. Why should the public fear their public servants? 

Instead of looking at the beneficial aspect of this law, which creates the incentive for police to act responsibly and just, Hubbard takes the ‘higher than thou’ attitude and is simply worried about himself.

How about questioning the immoral laws that you are enforcing in the first place? Or how about sympathizing with the innocent people whose pets and family members have been slain, due to police negligence?

How do you feel about Indiana’s new law? 

AN ACT to amend the Indiana Code concerning criminal law and procedure.

    Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Indiana:

    SECTION 1. IC 35-41-3-2, AS AMENDED BY P.L.189-2006, SECTION 1, IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE]: Sec. 2. (a) In enacting this section, the general assembly finds and declares that it is the policy of this state to recognize the unique character of a citizen’s home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant.

Reflexive Law How Sustainable Development Has Conned Us All

August 29th, 2014 by

http://www.augustforecast.com/2014/08/27/reflexive-law/

 By Patrick Wood 

 The New York Times blasted out the head­line yes­terday, Obama Pur­suing Cli­mate Accord in Lieu of Treaty. In short, Obama will use one or more Exec­u­tive Orders to entangle the U.S. in a global treaty on cli­mate change, without con­sulting the U.S. Senate. How­ever, the Con­sti­tu­tion requires the Senate to vote on all treaties and the bar is high: It takes a two-third vote to approve.

The Con­sti­tu­tion is out. The Rule of law has col­lapsed. Reflexive law has sur­passed it all. The bal­ance of this article will show you how and why.

If you are saying “Huh?”, you had better read every word of this report and figure it out, because this might be the most impor­tant shard of evi­dence ever revealed about the wrenching trans­for­ma­tion of Amer­ican society.

Obama’s prin­cipal adviser and “nego­tiator” on this so-called cli­mate accord is John Podesta, and this whole “treaty-by-executive-order debacle can be laid squarely at his feet. Until just recently, Podesta was a member of the Tri­lat­eral Com­mis­sion. He was Bill Clinton’s chief-of-staff in the 1990s and the orig­inal insti­gator of Exec­u­tive Branch policy of using Exec­u­tive Orders to bypass Con­gress on cer­tain issues. Clinton, also a Tri­lat­eral member, cre­ated many such EO’s to side-step Con­gress, and Con­gress unfor­tu­nately let him get away with it. Well, Podesta is back: I have stated pub­licly on sev­eral radio pro­grams since his recent appoint­ment to Senior Policy Adviser To The Pres­i­dent that Podesda is the most dan­gerous man in Washington.

Enough about Podesda. Just remember that he is the prime mover in what I am about to reveal.

The NYT article states,

To side­step that require­ment [of a 2/3 Senate vote], Pres­i­dent Obama’s cli­mate nego­tia­tors are devising what they call a “polit­i­cally binding” deal that would “name and shame” coun­tries into cut­ting their emis­sions. The deal is likely to face strong objec­tions from Repub­li­cans on Capitol Hill and from poor coun­tries around the world, but nego­tia­tors say it may be the only real­istic path.

Sev­eral weeks ago, while doing some research for my upcoming book, Tech­noc­racy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Trans­for­ma­tion, a book had caught my eye and so I impul­sively bought it. The title was Greening NAFTA by Markell and Knox and pub­lished in 2003 by Stan­ford Uni­ver­sity Press. According to the book, there was a sup­ple­mental agree­ment to NAFTA (1992) called the North Amer­ican Agree­ment on Envi­ron­mental Coop­er­a­tion (NAAEC), which estab­lished the North Amer­ican Com­mis­sion for Envi­ron­mental Coop­er­a­tion (CEC). The CEC was“the first inter­na­tional orga­ni­za­tion cre­ated to address the envi­ron­mental aspects of eco­nomic inte­gra­tion.” (1)

I intended to put the book in my library for some future date, but since I more recently had a five hour plane flight and needed some­thing to do, I hastily threw it into my brief­case on the way out the door. On the first leg of the flight, I skimmed the book, under­lining a few things, but oth­er­wise it gen­er­ally put me to sleep. On the return flight 10 days later, I picked it up again and flipped the pages thinking it would be more of the same, only to fall on a chapter toward the back titled, “Coor­di­nating Land and Water Use in the San Pedro River Basin.”The San Pedro River is in southern Ari­zona, and it just so hap­pened that I had owned a ranch on that same river when I first got out of col­lege in 1968, and so I knew the area like the back of my hand. Now I was really interested!

8-29-2014 10-01-28 AM

The San Pedro River Basin was the first instance of CEC involve­ment because it was a small and rel­a­tively unim­por­tant area, and because the head­wa­ters of the San Pedro River orig­i­nated in Mexico, just south of the U.S. border. Greening NAFTA explains,

Under Arti­cles 13 and 14, the Sec­re­tariat can accept and review cit­izen sub­mis­sions alleging that one of the three coun­tries is not enforcing its existing envi­ron­mental laws. (2)

In fact, the San Pedro sub­mis­sion (i.e., com­plaint) came not from a cit­izen at all, but from the rad­ical left-wing envi­ron­mental group based out of Tucson, theSouth­west Center for Bio­log­ical Diver­sity (SCBD). The mere accu­sa­tion that the area was in vio­la­tion of their pre­con­ceived ideas of nor­malcy was enough to set off a chain of events that changed the San Pedro River Basin for­ever. Here is where the plot thickens. The authors explain,

Article 13 can be char­ac­ter­ized as an example of post­modern, “soft” or “reflexive” inter­na­tional law because it seeks to influ­ence public and pri­vate behavior without the threat of the enforce­ment of tra­di­tional, sanction-based “hard” law. (3)

I had only heard (obvi­ously not under­standing) the term “soft law” before, but what is “reflexive law?”  The author treats them as syn­onyms. After a another round of dig­ging, I found the foun­tain­head of reflexive law in the fol­lowing article, Towards a Theory of Law and Soci­etal Devel­op­ment, written by a pro­fessor of inter­na­tional law in Sweden:

Another soci­ol­o­gist of law who have dealt with legal devel­op­ment in stages is Gün­ther Teubner. He has in an article in Law and Society Review 1983 put for­ward a theory that the law moves from formal to sub­stan­tive law and onwards to some­thing he calls reflexive law. Teubner agrees with Nonet-Selznick that we have passed a stage of formal law, which is con­sis­tent with the con­cept of autonomous law, and after that have entered a sta­dium of mate­rial law. Teubner does think the tran­si­tion from formal to mate­rial law should be divided into two types. A “gen­uine” mate­rial law which is used to realize spe­cific, con­crete values, what Teubner calls for sub­stan­tive law and another type of mate­rial law which Teubner has labeled reflexive law. This latter legal form is char­ac­ter­ized by con­sti­tu­tive and pro­ce­dural rules that put limits on legal devel­op­ments without spec­i­fying con­crete mate­rial values to be real­ized. Teubner sum­ma­rizes the char­ac­ter­is­tics of reflexive law by putting it in relief to the formal and sub­stan­tive law as follows:

Reflexive law affects the quality of out­comes without deter­mining that the agree­ments will be reached. Unlike formal law, it does not take prior dis­tri­b­u­tions as given. Unlike Sub­stan­tive law it does not hold that cer­tain con­trac­tual out­comes are desir­able. (4) [Emphasis added]

So we see that reflexive law is just over 30 years old, and yet it has since become the prin­cipal means by which to col­lapse the Rule of Law, based on actual laws, in the United States and in the Western world. Fur­ther­more, reflexive law starts without first deter­mining exactly what agree­ment will be reached, but pushes for­ward anyway to see how far the par­tic­i­pants can be pushed.

Hard law, which we are all familiar with, spec­i­fies clear out­comes when it is vio­lated. If you speed, you get a ticket. If you commit armed rob­bery, you go to jail for a spec­i­fied period. This is the tra­di­tional Rule of Law upon which our Republic and Con­sti­tu­tion is based. Laws are cre­ated by a Leg­isla­tive Branch, exe­cuted by the Exec­u­tive Branch and adju­di­cated by the Judi­cial Branch.

Greening NAFTA now explains exactly what reflexive law entails:

Reflexive law tries to align sys­tem­at­i­cally legal rules with norms that the rel­e­vant actors will inter­nalize. It builds on the real­iza­tion that the rea­sons why people actu­ally obey law ulti­mately lie out­side formal adju­di­ca­tion and the power of the state to enforce rules. (5)

Again, reflexive law starts out with desired out­comes, cre­ated by unelected and unac­count­able actors, for which there are no laws. Yes, they could appeal to Con­gress to create leg­is­la­tion, as would be required by the Con­sti­tu­tion. At the end of the reflexive process, described below, the actual out­comes depend on how well the stake­holders “inter­nalize” what is pro­posed. In other words, there is no actual legal process at all, but rather a jaw­boning process that cons actors into compliance.

Infor­ma­tion dis­clo­sure” is a prin­cipal policy instru­ment of reflexive law. That is, the analysis pro­duced is pre­sented with its “rec­om­mended out­comes.” Public meet­ings are then held to build con­sensus between indi­vidual cit­i­zens and other “actors”. In the case of the San Pedro River Basin study, the CEC enlisted the Uni­ver­sity of Arizona’s Udall Center to hold these public meet­ings. In sum, there was zero con­sensus among actual cit­i­zens of the area, as the book simply notes, “Public com­ment was emo­tion­ally divided on the reduc­tion of irri­gated agri­cul­ture.” (6)  Really? In fact, the farmers and ranchers in the area were beyond livid, but the real pur­pose of the public meet­ings had nothing to do with get­ting their vol­un­tary con­sensus. Rather, the meet­ings were designed to pub­licly abuse them until they submitted.

The Greening NAFTA authors are very blunt about this:

This expe­ri­ence reveals two pow­erful incen­tives at work: shame and thedesire to be vir­tuous while saving money or increasing profit mar­gins. In a post-Holocaust world, human rights NGOs have effec­tively used shame to induce com­pli­ance with uni­versal human rights norms. Also, vol­un­tary pol­lu­tion reduc­tion has been achieved when it is inter­nally prof­itable for an industry to reduce its dis­charges or an industry antic­i­pates increased reg­u­la­tory or public pres­sure to reduce them from the dis­clo­sure, such as through public shaming. Shaming works well with pol­lu­tion, espe­cially toxic pol­lu­tion, because it draws on deep, per­haps irra­tional, fears of expo­sure to the risk of serious ill­ness and an innate abhor­rence of bodily injury.(7)

What of the farmers and ranchers who refused to be shamed into con­sensus during the Udall Center public hear­ings? After all, they had zero input into the CEC’s study and sub­se­quent “rec­om­men­da­tions”, nor were they con­sulted prior to the South­west Center for Bio­log­ical Diversity’s orig­inal com­plaint. Well, they were simply offered other incen­tives that they were help­less to refuse or refute:

Two con­crete incen­tives that have suc­cess­fully induced landowner coop­er­a­tion under the U.S. Endan­gered Species Act are fear of a worse reg­u­la­tory out­come and immu­nity from lia­bility for changed con­di­tions.(8) [Emphasis added]

In the end, the farmers and ranchers suc­cumbed to the reflexive law process when the reg­u­la­tory bul­lies showed up with threats of what would happen to them if they did not buckle under to the CEC’s demands. These actors included the Bureau of Land Man­age­ment, man­ager of the San Pedro Riparian National Con­ser­va­tion Area (SPRNCA) and the U.S. Depart­ment of the Army. Accom­pa­nying them were sev­eral NGO’s, including the Nature Con­ser­vancy and the South­west Center for Bio­log­ical Diver­sity. The fed­eral threat was “We will bank­rupt you with reg­u­la­tions.” The NGO threat was “We will bank­rupt you with lawsuits.”

This is “reflexive law” and it is 100 per­cent anti­thet­ical to the Amer­ican Republic, the Rule of Law, the U.S. Con­sti­tu­tion and the entirety of Western civ­i­liza­tion. Because com­pli­ance has always been posited as vol­un­tary, nobody has been alarmed enough to look any fur­ther at it. How­ever, I will point out that almost every global impo­si­tion has been based on the vol­un­tary aspect of reflexive law. Agenda 21 depended upon vol­un­tary com­pli­ance, which is often referred to as “soft law” among its critics, who have not per­ceived the deeper meaning of reflexive law. Common Core edu­ca­tion stan­dards were intro­duced as a vol­un­tary pro­gram. Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment in gen­eral is always pro­posed to be a vol­un­tary pro­gram. All of these are based on reflexive law. But, once it gets its ten­ta­cles into your per­sonal prop­erty and local com­mu­nity, you will be invol­un­tarily squeezed until you “vol­un­tarily” comply. There is no legal process avail­able to defend your­self, your prop­erty, or your rights.

Now let’s examine the NYT article men­tioned at the start of this article.

To side­step that require­ment [two-third vote of the Senate], Pres­i­dent Obama’s cli­mate nego­tia­tors are devising what they call a “polit­i­cally binding” deal that would “name and shame” coun­tries into cut­ting their emis­sions. The deal is likely to face strong objec­tions from Repub­li­cans on Capitol Hill and from poor coun­tries around the world, but nego­tia­tors say it may be the only real­istic path. (9) [Emphasis added]

Did your alarm bells ring? Obama is deliv­ering us into an inter­na­tional reflexive law treaty that has no actual legal basis in fact, and that is why they think they are jus­ti­fied in ignoring the Senate. After all, the Senate deals with “hard law” while Podesta and gang deals with “reflexive law.” Fur­ther­more, they will use the prin­cipal “name and shame” policy tool of reflexive law to smoke out the resis­tance for public shaming. Sub­se­quently, from what you now know about how reflexive law is enforced in the end, those hold­outs will be offered a “deal that they cannot refuse”, namely, much worse reg­u­la­tory out­comes, inter­na­tional law­suits and entan­gle­ment, trade sanc­tions, etc.

The NYT elab­o­rates further:

Amer­ican nego­tia­tors are instead homing in on a hybrid agree­ment — a pro­posal to blend legally binding con­di­tions from an existing 1992 treaty with new vol­un­tary pledges. The mix would create a deal that would update the treaty, and thus, nego­tia­tors say, not require a new vote of ratification.

Coun­tries would be legally required to enact domestic cli­mate change poli­cies — but would vol­un­tarily pledge to spe­cific levels of emis­sions cuts and to channel money to poor coun­tries to help them adapt to cli­mate change. Coun­tries might then be legally oblig­ated to report their progress toward meeting those pledges at meet­ings held to iden­tify those nations that did not meet their cuts. (10) [Emphasis added]

There is not a single shred of doubt that any­thing other than reflexive law is pic­tured here. It spits in the face of tra­di­tional Rule of Law that our country was founded upon and oper­ated under until 1983 when this trea­so­nous legal system was con­ceived — by a German, no less. For all intents and pur­poses, reflexive law has caused the utter col­lapse of Rule of Law as we know it.

Don’t even begin to think this is any­thing less than bla­tant, for the article con­cludes with the frank braggadocio :

There’s some legal and polit­ical magic to this,” said Jake Schmidt, an expert in global cli­mate nego­ti­a­tions with the Nat­ural Resources Defense Council, an advo­cacy group. “They’re trying to move this as far as pos­sible without having to reach the 67-vote threshold” in the Senate.(11) [Emphasis added]

Magic, indeed: Merriam-Webster defines magic as “the art of pro­ducing illu­sions by sleight of hand.” 

To copycat Paul Harvey’s famous radio pro­gram sign-off, “Now you know… therest of the story.”

Obama Sets The Stage For Civil War In America

August 28th, 2014 by

http://www.pakalertpress.com/

8-28-2014 8-23-06 AM

By TRUTHER

When a government no longer follows the rule of law, imposing instead it’s own law by decree – history teaches that a society becomes ruled  by the gun.

Legitimate government bound by the rule of law has the moral authority to uphold the law and impose justice.  A government the discards the rule of law, for it’s own rules and laws, no longer has any moral authority.  As such, the rule of law is always replaced by the rule of the gun – either to force compliance with a government’s dictates and whims, or in resistance to the government’s dictates and whims.  Regardless which is employed (usually both) – rivers of blood follow as history teaches that civil wars and conflicts are usually the most brutal.

Obama and his party (and to a minor degree the GOP leadership oligarchy) – are setting the stage for that exact consequence to be visited upon what used to be the home of the free.

What we are witnessing, is the devolution of the civil society into tyranny prompted by the incitement of anarchy.  The stoking of unrest in Ferguson by the White House, it’s attorney general and assorted race pimps like Sharpton, illustrate this fact in the local sense.

In the larger sense, the Ruling Class pass laws upon the people that they absolve and exempt themselves, at the same time they use a corrupted judiciary to strike down the will of the people to impose the will of the Leftist State.  This includes the domino fall of nearly every state’s Constitutional ban on Homosexual marriage or those laws limiting marriage to the biblical and natural law.

A despotic Executive who when not playing golf, decides what laws he will ignore and no longer enforce, while decreeing  policy as law that contravenes existing law.  This was once understood to be the definition of a dictatorship, but today the people are ignorant of facts, history and current events for the latest cultural fad via social networking.  For a people fast asleep to what is happening to them, the awakening to the cage they are shackled to will be violent, as history teaches.

Arbitrary laws mean there is no longer any common respect for the law – by either the government, or those it demands to rule.  Law is then determined by the end of a gun.  By those seeking to impose compliance or by those resisting it.  The cost of which is beyond the comprehension of most when one considers not just the violence – but the privation, starvation and brutality that lies in the wake of civil war.

But America is being shoved headfirst off the cliff by the man who holds the White House and those in government.

Rejecting The Rule Of Law Means Inviting The Rule Of Guns

Kurt Schlichter – Townhall.com

What is the alternative to the rule of law? We may be on the verge of re-learning that ancient lesson the hard way. Of course, those of us who is served in places where there was no law, where leftists and other aspiring totalitarians ignored the rules and norms of civil society, already know.

The alternative to the rule of law is the rule of power. And the rule of power is always the rule of men with guns.

The disgraceful indictment of Rick Perry in Texas is just the latest example of this trend, albeit one that carries the seeds of hope. The judicial lynching under way in Ferguson offers less reason for optimism – our disgrace of an Attorney General and that clown masquerading as Missouri’s governor are practically salivating at the idea of sacrificing the police officer on the altar of indignation, facts and law be damned.

Liberals are committed to destroying the rule of law because law, by treating all equally and recognizing their inalienable rights, frustrates their fascist impulses. This isn’t just another annoying manifestation of the left’s utter failure as functioning ideology. It’s a trend that should terrify everyone concerned with the state of our union.

History shows us where this leads. We now have a President, an alleged constitutional law professor, who believes that if the people’s elected representatives in Congress refuse to bend to his will he can just do what he likes anyway. At least when Caesar finally destroyed the Republic, ancient Rome ended up with a dictator who knew how to win wars.

This guy golfs while the world burns.

We have government agencies like the IRS and EPA simply ignoring laws, like the ones that that require them to maintain records so they can be held accountable to the people they purport to serve. Where are the consequences for their conscious failure to do so? The problem is that those sworn to uphold the law are the very ones undermining it. Can’t Eric Holder take a break from telegraphing to his progressive pals that his lackeys won’t be deterred from crucifying the Ferguson officer by obstacles like facts, evidence and law, and do his job?

He never will. Today, there are no consequences for those whose law-breaking aids the establishment.

And when not actively ignoring the law, the liberal establishment seeks to change the foundations of our law to strip the civil rights from those who oppose it. It is mind-boggling: We now have one of our two major political parties that, as a key policy position, believes that the First Amendment allows too much freedom of speech. The Democrats literally wish to amend the Constitution to restrict our right of free expression.

Yeah, that’s America’s problem – too much free speech by people critical of the government. That and gender specific bathrooms. And global warming, which science teaches comes from unicorn flatulence.

This isn’t a surprise. In the name of “campaign finance reform” – that is, the protection of largely Democrat incumbents – the Obama Administration actually sent an attorney representing theUnited States of America into the Supreme Court to argue that the government has the right to ban a book critical of a politician.

The clowns are to your right to read and think what you wish as John Lithgow was to dancing in Footloose. Which makes conservatives Kevin Bacon.

So what happens when the government is not restrained by law? What happens first is that the government does what it wants, as it wants, without accountability. That provides those left unprotected by the law two ugly choices. On one hand, they can submit, and allow themselves to be oppressed, existing at the pleasure, and subject to the whims, of their masters.

The alternative is to fight. Look at the Declaration of Independence. It’s largely a chronicle of English lawlessness, though the members of this administration no doubt consider that document unworthy of study because the Founding Fathers were cisgender, phallocentric racists or something.

Chairman Mao, who is a big favorite of the half-wits in the White House, said it best: “Power comes from the barrel of a gun.” If there is no law, there is no moral reason not to pick up a rifle and take what you want. The moral imperative of the law is that you will obey and respect it even if you disagree with it because it was justly imposed and will be fairly enforced. But if the law is neither justly imposed nor fairly enforced, that moral obligation disappears.

I walked through the burnt-out villages of Kosovo after the moral imperative of the law there had disappeared. The baffling concept that half of America will simply shrug their shoulders and submit to the dictatorship of the other half is as dangerous as it is misguided and foolish. When you toss out the law, bad things happen. This is a major theme of my new book, Conservative Insurgency, a speculative future history of the struggle to restore our country, and the consequences of short-sighted attacks on the rule of law for short-term political gain are not pleasant.

But there is hope. When that drunken Democrat convict of a district attorney indicted Rick Perry for doing his job – and that is exactly what she indicted him for – even some liberals swallowed hard and shook their heads. Perhaps this was the bridge too far that finally made a few liberals re-think their comrades’ chosen path downward into chaos.

The reaction of a few liberals to this charade is a sign of hope, but sadly many other leftists are clapping their soft, pudgy hands like trained seals, eagerly welcoming this latest step towards their liberal fascist Utopia. Somehow they got the impression that the American people will accept whatever they do, whatever injustice they impose, whatever whims they choose to enforce. That is an unbelievably dangerous notion. The sooner we stomp it out and return to the rule of law, the better.

When Anti Government Violence Erupts Who Is Really At Fault?

August 27th, 2014 by

http://www.alt-market.com/articles/2290-when-anti-government-

violence-erupts-who-is-really-at-fault

8-26-2014 6-31-57 PM

By Brandon Smith

This past week, I have been examining a recently leaked document from the Department Of Homeland Security entitled “Domestic Violent Extremists Pose A Threat To Government Officials And Law Enforcement.” (Yes; the title leaves nothing to the imagination.)

Generally, such documents are not classified. But it is internally accepted within establishment agencies that they should not be shared with the public. Similar documents like the Missouri Information Analysis Center report titled “The Modern Militia Movement” and the Virginia Fusion Center’s Terrorism Threat Assessment are not designed to import in-depth knowledge to law enforcement. In fact, if you actually investigate these white papers thoroughly, you will find they read like a mentally challenged middle-school student’s last-minute book report on liberty groups in America.

Rather than convey the complexity of the conflict between federal bureaucracy and constitutionalists, the papers linked above are meant to indoctrinate law enforcement officials against even considering what we have to say or why we take the actions we take.

Often, the Southern Poverty Law Center, a shameless propaganda outlet known for its Saul Alinsky tactics, is tapped as the primary source of “data” for these reports. At no time have I ever seen a government report on “domestic extremism” accusing liberty activists that actually allows a subset of the liberty movement to personally describe our position.

Often, the DHS will claim to LEOs that there is a “disparity in our beliefs that makes us unpredictable” or that they do not have a full understanding of our motivations during a particular event. The confrontation at Cliven Bundy’s ranch was the latest shock, after which federal officials acted as though the standoff attitude of armed liberty activists was incomprehensible.

The reality is that establishment cronies know all too well why Americans are angered to the point of taking up arms.

In any piece of propaganda, including the leaked DHS report, the goal is to paint opposition to state power in the darkest manner possible, so that the useful idiots (oath breaking LEOs and federal agents) can maintain the false sense that they hold the moral high ground. It is the information that such propaganda fails to mention that holds the key to unraveling the government position. For instance, the paper overtly mentions armed patriots at Bundy ranch as a brand of escalation, but does not mention the heavily armed Bureau of Land Management agents and contracted snipers that came first, seeking to terrify the Bundy family into compliance.

Nor does the paper mention the trampling of protester 1st amendment rights with the BLM’s absurdly inadequate, fenced-off “First Amendment Area.” In light of this, I ask: Who triggered the confrontation at Bundy ranch?

Is the federal government really all that surprised that liberty activists from all across the country came armed and ready to fight or even die? Some people believe the establishment is so ignorant or blinded by hubris that they can’t see the typhoon at their door, but I don’t think they are as dumb as they pretend.

Tragedies like Waco and Ruby Ridge do not have a shelf life. They accumulate in the minds of the people over time, and generations can pass without the rage ever fading. At Bundy ranch, the liberty movement resolved that we would not allow another such event to occur again without direct consequences – meaning nonsensical false-flag terrorism like the Oklahoma City bombing will never be our method, though the Feds would like you to assume as much. No, our method is to stand in between the aggressors, whoever they may be, and the victims, whoever they may be, and stop the tragedy before it happens.

At Bundy ranch, the BLM and its military contractors ran away, returning Bundy property as they went. Thus, the liberty movement removed the immediate threat and prevented another possible Waco. This is called “escalation of violent extremism” by the establishment. I call it de-escalation of violent government abuse by liberty activists.

The federal government would have you believe that the rise of “militias” and violent opposition is somehow taking place in a vacuum; that government officials can’t understand why such escalation is occurring now; that it must be a product of “racism” due to a black president; and that it’s all a chaotic, self-mutating mess of extremist insanity. This is ridiculous.

Why are people gearing up for revolution? I’ll break it down simply:

If you try to take our freedom, our chance at prosperity or our lives, we are going to fight you until one side or both sides dies. Period.

I’m not sure how this could be difficult to comprehend, and I do not think the feds haven’t grasped it. I think if they are surprised at all, it is because they have been steamrolling over Americans for so long that they are not used to the idea of regular people stopping them cold. Powder kegs are revealing themselves all across the U.S., from Bundy ranch to Ferguson, Missouri, and all caused by authoritarian overreach by federal and state officials.

In Ferguson, anger over perceived as well as legitimate state abuse has developed into street activism, but also random looting. Michael Brown himself is not necessarily an endearing character, but that is not a rationalization for the outright execution of suspects by the police, which has taken place with increasing frequency across the country in recent years.  The strange behavior of Ferguson officials at the onset of the shooting combined with a lack of immediate transparency leads some to believe a cover-up is in progress, while others in government seek to exploit the event to ignite race divisions.

Whether or not Michael Brown actually “charged” at Officer Darren Wilson is not yet confirmed.  However, we do know that regardless, Brown was unarmed, and that the officer in question had less-lethal-means at his disposal, including a taser and pepper spray.  Whatever new facts come to light, it was still the choice of Darren Wilson to fire his handgun six times into Brown’s head and arm, instead of using other available methods.  Darren Wilson’s refusal to make an official statement at the beginning of the event allows him to shift his story according the evidence that becomes available to the public.  The entire situation and handling by Ferguson police only feeds already existing distrust of LEOs, who, with their federal funding and supplied military hardware, have become the front line mascots of government abuse.

The Ferguson shooting itself almost becomes irrelevant in comparison to the government response to public protest.  State officials cite the explosion of looting and violence as a reason for the insertion of heavily armed and armored SWAT units, as well as the National Guard.  However, riot police and militarized units IGNORED looters and rioters, and instead aimed the brunt of their attacks at peaceful protesters.  This reveals a government disdain for 1st Amendment activities that goes far beyond the controversy of Michael Brown or even the inevitable “race-war” propaganda.

What is the solution? To stop the rise of anti-government violence, we must remove government intrusion into people’s lives, and the public must take community security into its own hands.  Why did police use riot control measures against peaceful protesters in Ferguson, while such tactics were abandoned during the Bundy Ranch incident?  Why does Eric Holder express “alarm” over the use of the National Guard in Ferguson, yet, he and the White House discussed plans formilitary intervention at Bundy Ranch?  Why have leftists expressed shock over militarized police in Ferguson, when many of them were calling for drone strikes and blood in Bunkerville?  Why have some “conservatives” set aside their 1st Amendment concerns when it comes to Ferguson when they were livid over the initial 1st Amendment trampling of Bundy Ranch?

The bottom line is this – outsiders will always have their opinions, and in most cases their opinions don’t count for much, but that does not stop people from trying to force their ignorant views upon you.  Whatever the community and whatever the circumstances, the only way to solve the problem of the state & statists vs. the people is for the people to take responsibility for their own surroundings.

If the citizens of Ferguson (and the rest of America) really want to erase this conundrum from their lives permanently, they are going to have to establish neighborhood watches and even community “militias” (there’s the dreaded “M” word again) to bring peace to their town.

By refusing to take responsibility for their own security, Ferguson residents have invited city and state LEOs to do the job for them, and this has resulted in the possibility of unwarranted death-by-cop. Ferguson residents can and should remove LEO presence by establishing their own security. But this means they would have to stop the looting by petty thugs using protests as cover, and it also means they would have to prevent or intervene in criminal activities of less honorable residents.

The Founding Fathers answered the question of “who watches the watchmen” by creating a system by which the people ARE the watchmen. This was the militia system, a system that the federal government now labels “domestic extremism” and violent escalation.

I have been saying it for years, and I’ll keep saying right up until the shooting starts: Americans must take responsibility for their own futures and their own defense. Whether or not the people of Ferguson accept this, I have no idea, but the crisis will never stop until they do. And this problem applies to all other communities across the nation as well.  Corruption of a community and the application of tyranny is rather difficult when every able bodied person within that community has the ability to defend themselves.  Therefore, it remains up to each individual, and each sovereign neighborhood, town, county, and state, to man-up and become combat capable so that less honest institutions do not fill the void.

Dupes and statists will argue that the only way to change the system is to play by the rules, build a majority, elect the politicians you want and fight unconstitutional laws in the courts. But what should the people do when our political structure is rigged by special interests representing only a handful of elites? What should the people do when independent parties are muscled out of the mainstream and the leaders of the major parties sabotage any internal movements to change the status quo? What do the people do when their protests and redress of grievances are bashed by the media, violently attacked by the authorities or outright denied by government-enforced curfew? What do the people do when the courts stall justice and drown dissent with legal red tape? What do people do when playing by the rules only makes the situation worse for us all?

Americans must realize an important fact: There is no power over us but that which we give away.

The original intent of our republic is that the people ARE the government — not a select few elitists handpicked by corporate bankers. Politicians are supposed to be our employees, not a ruling class that sits above the populace. The current growing conflict between the citizenry and the government is igniting exactly because our government does not represent the common man anymore. The government is not “by the people, for the people.” It is a separate entity, representing corrupt and hostile parties. It cannot be changed from within. The federal government is now foreign to us, a guarded enemy with malicious motives.

Americans can take back the power they have neglected by taking responsibility for themselves and their communities. The government can only do two things in reaction: accept that we are in charge of our own lives and walk away, or try to stop us with force and assert its dominance. If it chooses the latter, then all violence that follows after will be on its hands, not ours. Anti-government activities arise only because of destructive government attitudes. If the establishment really fears a wave of violence against it, then it should do exactly as it did in Bunkerville, Nevada — walk away and leave people in peace.

THE CORRUPTERS

August 26th, 2014 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/guest_opinion/guest255.htm 

By Joe David
August 26, 2014
NewsWithViews.com

Education is all about head-shrinking. A perfectly normal head or, to be more precise, mind, is taken before it can form important concepts and gather life-saving knowledge, and it is reduced to the size of a pea through concept-shrinking educational activities. Then after twelve, sixteen and even twenty years of such education, these shriveled and minuscule minds are released unfocused to society for the strongest voice and the most powerful hand to lead. – Joe David – The Fire Within

Today, everywhere, we are seeing the results of decades of such education. While extremists invade all areas of our society, deconstructing our culture with hateful slogans and deeds, the majority of Americans ignore them. They don’t understand – or care to understand what is happening. They are too absorbed in their artificial world, created with Silicon Valley’s high-tech gadgetry and Hollywood’s special-effects entertainment, to note what is happening around them. Those few who do understand and dare to identify the enemy are usually discredited.

A huge organization of thinkers (and pundits) do this by overloading the public with volumes of words, often contradicting the truth, blaming everyone but those guilty for what is happening today in America. By inundating the public with confusing information, they are allowing our truly dangerous enemy, bent on burning our Constitution and stealing our freedom and prosperity, to continue their schemes, unnoticed. Disguised by respectability and entrenched in three primary areas of our culture, this enemy with laser-like precision is surgically turning the land of the free and the home of the brave into the land of the mindless and the home of the submissive.

The Educators

The most respected and perhaps the most destructive enemy of American culture are the educators. While promising to liberate us, they are instead enslaving us with their weapon of mass-mental self-destruction. This weapon is called pragmatism, a philosophy bequeathed to them by the father of modern “education.” What makes this philosophy threatening to healthy minds is its non-ideological approach to problem-solving. Translated, this simply means students are encouraged to seek immediate, not moral solutions to important problems. Such quick-fix solutions to urgent problems rarely address their underlining cause, leaving them free to haunt us periodically until, if ever, they are corrected. (Almost everything the government does these days exemplifies this approach to problem solving.)

This deadly philosophy responsible for this crept into our schools through the teachings of John Dewey. It is his progressive ideas on education that have directly (and even indirectly) influenced the outcome of modern education (i.e., the abandonment of phonics, the creation of anti-intellectual classroom exercises, the new math system, cultural relativism, historical revisionism, political correctness, and the list goes on). After years of such education, the results are seen almost everywhere. It is most obvious among public school graduates who leave school unable to read, write or think independently. Instead of having mastered higher-level reasoning skills, the opposite has occurred. Tossed into the gutter educationally, they have been left to find their way out without any intelligent guidance. The primary conversation of such aborted mental misfits centers around the mating habits of their favorite celebrity, the latest cool “action” movie, or the most popular mind-blowing recreational drug. When young adults do attempt to lift themselves to higher levels of thinking, they usually find themselves sinking in quicksand, because their ideas are often built on faulty premises. Our schools in their eagerness to mass-produce ignorance have successfully created students who can only reverberate memorized clichés, unprocessed cerebrally.

The Journalists

When I began to write for the general markets in the sixties, certain taboos existed among publications. These taboos were clearly communicated to writers. The reason was to make certain everyone understood who his audience was. Within the perimeters of these taboos, though, the writer was able to write freely, restrained only by good taste and reason. Today, unfortunately, such freedom has been lifted. What we are facing, in lieu of a taboos, is wide-spread censorship. The market available to responsible writers has shrunk significantly. If writers want to be published widely, they must maintain an acceptable bias. They are only allowed to tell the truth up to a point, and only then if they give the content the right spin. Success in this new market is determined by the skill with which a writer can make his spin believable.

Because of such growing censorship, we are reaching the end of free speech. Dark clouds are hovering over America. The leaders in communications are shamelessly making certain to this by giving preference to writers with troubled and muddled minds who have no problem building a case against a victim without first a fair trial (the George Zimmerman case, for example). Their reason for this is to take us into a New World where law and order is replaced by mob rule.

The Government

Thomas Jefferson once said, “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.” Every day in so many different ways Americans are voting for more government expansion without realizing they are creating more opportunity for tyranny. The scandals in government (which even the powerful media aren’t always able to hush up) are occurring regularly at an unbelievable rate. Those noble programs which have been created to help the unfortunate have become money-laundering enterprises that make a few select people very rich at the public’s expense. Instead of having a government that protects us, we have one that is bankrupting us both financially and morally with lucrative scams.

Thanks to the dumbing down of America by the schools, today the big three are able to get away with this, and, at the same time, divide Americans (whites against blacks, Christians against Muslims, rich against poor, immigrants against natives, and the list goes on, ad infinitum). By creating divisiveness, they are setting up the dynamics for the final stage of their plan, a civil war which will give the government the excuse it needs to crush Americans through military rule. Like Germany during the time of Hitler, we are presently being identified (phone taping and email hijacking by NSA), and silenced (the Tea Party scandal and the censorship of the pulpit by the IRS). These three important segments of our society, which are capable of lifting us to the highest level of achievement by protecting our rights and expanding our minds, are effectively leading us to our enslavement.

Right now our borders are broken and the terrorists are flooding the land. While this is occurring, Americans are overdosing on sex, drugs, and mindless entertainment. Any day, any time, the enemy will rise up and take action, armed for modern warfare, with the complete support of the big three.

The big question: Will America survive?

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

The answer to that is DEFENITLY NO! In fact, what we have always believed America is, has been subverted until nothing recognizable is left. The land of the free, and the home of the brave is now, with few exceptions, the land of voluntary slaves, and the home of narcissistic cowards. We have been surreptitiously invaded by the very best minds the International Investment Banking Cartel could find to lead us to self destruction. 

HOROWITZ: The Hell That Is The Obama White House

August 21st, 2014 by

http://www.truthrevolt.org/commentary/horowitz-hell-obama-white-house

By David Horowitz

 Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet.

Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is possible.

A president faced with a scandal created by underlings behind his back would be naturally furious at their misbehavior, and want heads to roll. This didn’t happen in any of these scandals because their point of origin was the White House itself. Promoting the culprits is a way of keeping them quiet.

And what exactly is the I.R.S. scandal about — to take just one case? It’s a plan unprecedented in modern American politics to push the political system towards a one-party state by using the taxing authority of the government to cripple and destroy the political opposition. The administration’s campaign to promote voter fraud by opposing measures to stop it (and defaming them as “racist” is guided by the same intentions and desire).

And why shouldn’t Obama want to destroy the two-party system since he is also in utter contempt of the Constitutional framework, making law illegally, and defying an impotent Congress to stop him? Of course every radical, like Obama, hates the Constitutional framework because, as Madison explained in Federalist #10, it is designed to thwart “the wicked projects” of the left to redistribute income and destroy the free market.

The same desire to overwhelm and permanently suppress the opposition drives the war that Obama and the Democrats have conducted against America’s borders and therefore American sovereignty. Their plan is to flood the country with illegals of whatever stripe who will be grateful enough for the favor to win them elections and create a permanent majority in their favor. The immediate result of these efforts is that we have no secure southern border, and therefore no border; and therefore we have effectively invited criminals and terrorists to come across and do Americans harm.

Which brings us to the deepest level of Obama’s hell, which is his anti-American foreign policy. When Obama was re-elected in 2012, the very first thought I had was this: A lot of people are going to be dead because of this election. How disastrously right I was. Since their assault on George Bush and their sabotage of the war in Iraq, Obama and the Democrats have forged a power vacuum in Europe and even more dramatically in the Middle East, which nasty characters have predictably entered with ominous implications for the future security of all Americans.

Take one aspect of this epic default: Obama’s lack of response to the slaughter of Christians in Palestine, Egypt and Iraq. Hundreds of thousands of Christians have been slaughtered and driven from their homes in Iraq – over half a million by some counts. This is the oldest Christian community in the world dating back to the time of Christ. What was Obama’s response to this atrocity until a group of Yazvidi along with the Christians were trapped on a mountain side, and politics dictated he had to make some gesture. His response was to do and say nothing. Silence. Even his statement announcing minimal action to save the Yazvidi and the Christians mentioned the Christians once in passing while devoting a paragraph to the obscure Yazvidi.

What this unfeeling and cold response to the slaughter of Christians tells us is that Obama is a pretend Christian just the way he is a pretend American. What he is instead is a world class liar. That is because his real agendas are anti-American, anti-Christian, and anti-Jewish, and obviously and consistently pro America’s third world adversaries to whom he is always apologizing and whom he is always appeasing. Obama lies about his intentions and policies because he couldn’t survive politically if he told the truth,

The socialist plot against individual freedom called Obamacare was sold as a charitable attempt to cover the uninsured (which it doesn’t), to lower health insurance costs (which it doesn’t) and to allow patients to keep their doctor and their plan (which it doesn’t). What it actually does is to take away a major piece of the freedom that Americans once enjoyed — the freedom to choose their plan and their doctor, and not to have the government control their health care or have easy access to all their financial information.

This devious, deceitful, power hungry administration is just as James Woods described it. But it is also a mounting danger for all Americans. Thanks to his global retreat, the terrorists Obama falsely claims are “on the run” are in fact gathering their strength and their weapons of mass destruction until a day will come when they will cross our porous borders and show us what years of perfidy not only by Obama but by the whole Democratic Party have wrought.

Cooperate Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Does

August 20th, 2014 by

http://blog.simplejustice.us/2014/08/19/cooperate-doesnt

-mean-what-you-think-it-does/#more-21901

 SCOTT H. GREENFIELD

Via Reason’s Matt Welch, the Washington Post provides the insight of 17-year LAPD veteran turned “homeland security” professor at Colorado Tech University, Sunil Dutta, as to the mindset of the police officer on the mean streets of Ferguson. Lest there be any doubt as to where this is heading, it’s entitled, I’m a cop. If you don’t want to get hurt, don’t challenge me.

Don’t start spitting yet. Wait for the deeper insight into how terribly wrong we are to misunderstand everything coming out of Ferguson, from the killing of Michael Brown to the management of the community.  There is a very real problem, according to Dutta. We don’t get it.

It is also a terrible calumny; cops are not murderers. No officer goes out in the field wishing to shoot anyone, armed or unarmed. And while they’re unlikely to defend it quite as loudly during a time of national angst like this one, people who work in law enforcement know they are legally vested with the authority to detain suspects — an authority that must sometimes be enforced. Regardless of what happened with Mike Brown, in the overwhelming majority of cases it is not the cops, but the people they stop, who can prevent detentions from turning into tragedies.

In case you’re wondering, the calumny (meaning “character assassination”) has nothing to do with the smear of dead Michael Brown, but the “cops are murderers” strawman Dutta seeks to sneak past us.

Of course “cops are not murderers.” Murderers are murderers. Sometimes, murderers are cops.   And indeed, in the “overwhelming majority of cases it is not the cops.”  Nobody suggests otherwise. But then, how many cops have to murder to make it a problem for you.  Is one percent of a half million interactions sufficient? Why that’s a mere 5000 murders. A drop in your bucket, Dutta?

Of course, there are also the beatings, the tasings, the occasional rapes and/or sexual assaults, but you didn’t claim cops aren’t rapists, and I wouldn’t want to put words in your mouth.

Working the street, I can’t even count how many times I withstood curses, screaming tantrums, aggressive and menacing encroachments on my safety zone, and outright challenges to my authority.

Did someone tell you at the Academy that the public would be showering you with kisses and adoration?  Perhaps they suggested you would carry all that cool hardware on your service belt because people would get in your personal space to request your autograph, you rock star, you.

Oh wait. You were a cop. Your job was to deal with people who were often displeased to see you. Are you complaining? Do you want to give back your pension?

Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you.

That’s not, of course, because you, the police officer, are smarter, more concerned, more thoughtful, more sensitive or more knowledgeable.  Rather, it’s because you have weapons and will use them. So this is as true for police officers as, say, an armed robber on the street.

Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me.

In most human interactions, there is a bit of rational give and take. Granted, you shirk it off because you’ve heard it all before.  Oh, to be so world-weary that no one (who doesn’t sign your evals) could possibly have anything to say that might be worth listening to.  But you have command presence; right or wrong is well past relevant. It’s now about control, and you will use whatever force is available to exert total domination because, well, that’s what somebody in the Academy told you to do.

Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?

This is where we, sadly, part ways.  When you use the word “cooperate,” you do so applying the cop definition.  We, non-cops, are to cooperate with you, cop.  We, as you’ve already told us, are to do as you say.  Your idea of cooperation has nothing whatsoever to do with cooperation.  It’s just a much better word than “comply or I will inflict pain, perhaps even death.”  If they put “comply” on the side of a cruiser, it would really suck as marketing, so you call it “cooperation,” which sounds all warm and fuzzy, much as “stop resisting” sounds reasonable as you pound your baton into an unconscious person’s skull.  That only happens rarely too.

The disconnect seems to be that the public just won’t do whatever a cop says. Sometimes, they won’t do it fast enough. Sometimes, they don’t do it right enough. Sometimes, they won’t do it at all.  Your solution is just do it or you’ve brought the wrath of the police down on your own head.  You kinda like the power of cop. It lets you blame the victim for doing what you have to do.

Thanks, Dutta, for explaining this.  Thanks for teaching everyone why we continue to have these issues with people getting killed by the non-murderer cops, who just want us to do as they command.  And especially, thanks for clearing up the nagging issue of whether pinning a shield to one’s shirt creates an inexplicable potential for dangerously violent behavior based on numerous concerns spelled out in the DSM (pick your number).

You see, we don’t have anything particularly against cops. We have a problem with violent crazies with weapons and shields. Some of them happen to be cops. They shouldn’t.  So what exactly does a professor of “homeland security” teach?  I’m betting it involves cooperation. Or else.

And the reactions roll in: Ken White at Popehat, and Rick Horowitz.  Neither appears interested in taking Prof. Dutta’s class.

 New Orleans Police Officer Turns Off Body Camera Minutes Before Shooting Suspect In Forehead

http://jonathanturley.org/2014/08/19/new-orleans-police-officer-turns-

off-body-camera-minutes-before-shooting-suspect-in-forehead/

 By  jonathanturley

 In New Orleans, Armand Bennet, 26, was shot in the forehead during a traffic stop by New Orleans police officer Lisa Lewis. However, the police department did not reveal until much later that Lewis turned off her body camera just before shooting Bennett. Bennett survived and has now been charged under prior warrants for his arrest. It also reviewed that Lewis had had a prior run in with Bennet who escaped about a week earlier.

New Orleans Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas called the late disclosures on the shooting simply a “snafu.”

Lewis’ lawyer says that she turned off her camera because she was heading back to the station at the end of her shift and that the shot was fired during a scuffle after the stop. Bennett’s attorney says that there was no scuffle and that Lewis fired a second shot as Bennett ran away.

The two had been in a scuffle a week before and Bennett had gotten away. The NOPD then issued four warrant for Bennet and those warrants were the basis for the stop.

Putting aside the merits of the officers claims, I am still unclear why these body cameras can even be turned off by officers. The point of a body camera should be that it runs from check in to check out. It should not be under the control of the officer to guarantee a record that cannot be challenged by either side. That would avoid the troubling appearance of an officer with a prior run in with a suspect who turns off her camera minutes before shooting the suspect in the head.

Kudos: Michael Blott

New Army Manual Calls for the Use of Lethal Force Against Peaceful Protesters

August 19th, 2014 by

http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/08/new-army-manual-

calls-use-lethal-force-peaceful-protesters/

8-19-2014 8-55-45 AMDave Hodges 

 The new Army manual, known as ATP 3-39.33, provides discussion and techniques about civil disturbances and crowd control operations that occur in the continental United States (CONUS) and outside the continental United States (OCONUS). 

This document, just published this past Friday, August 15, 2014, promises to change the way the “authorities” deal with protesters, even peaceful ones. The consequences of ATP 39.33 could prove deadly for protesters. Further, the provisions of this Army manual could prove to be the end of the First Amendment right to assemble peaceably.

In section 1-2., the manual states that  “Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots.” This section of the manual clearly states that protesting is a right protected by the Constitution. However, the authorities leave themselves an out to “legally” engage in lethal force toward protesters when the manual states that “peaceful protests can turn into full-scale riots” and field commanders have the right to make that determination. Subsequently, all protests, peaceful or not, need to be managed by the potential for violence. In other words, all protests are to be considered to be violent and handled accordingly. This certainly explains the violent manhandling of the media by the DHS controlled and militarized police in Ferguson, MO.

Posse Comitatus Is Violated

On the surface, the Posse Comitatus Act (18 USC 1385) act should prevent the Army from deploying the troops in the midst of a protest that is not on the scale of something like the 1992 LA Riots. However, the Army claims exemption from Posse Comitatus in the four following areas. 

  • 10 USC 331. When a state is unable to control domestic violence and they have requested federal assistance, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.
  • 10 USC 332. When ordinary enforcement means are unworkable due to unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.
  • 10 USC 333. When a state cannot or will not protect the constitutional rights of the citizens, due to domestic violence or conspiracy to hinder execution of State or Federal law, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.
  • House Joint Resolution 1292. This resolution directs all departments of the U.S. government, upon request of the Secret Service, to assist in carrying out its statutory duties to protect government officials and major political candidates from physical harm.

With regard to 10 USC 331, if the local authorities have lost control in the midst of a profound display of domestic violence (e.g. LA Riots), most Americans support the use of National Guard or the military.  However, in 10 USC 332, 333 and House Joint Resolution 1292 are ripe with exceptions which open the door to federal authorities abusing the public for exercising their Constitutional right to protest.

In 10 USC 332, the phrase “unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized,” permits the federal government from being demonstrated against. An act of demonstration, or the most benign demonstrations of civil disobedience gives the government the authority to take “deadly action” against the public  because there are no clear distinctions on when the use of lethal and nonlethal force is appropriate (see the two charts displayed below). 

In 10 USC 333, any disruption of federal law can be decisively dealt with by the federal government. The phrase “…conspiracy to hinder execution of State or Federal law, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized” is a telling passage of this Army document. If 10 USC 333 is applied to the letter of the written Army policy, the protesters who recently objected to illegal aliens being deposited in Murietta, California, could be subject to deadly force. Further, the protesters in Ferguson could be subject to the use of lethal force as well (Again, see the charts below).

The next time a community decides that it does not want to accept illegal immigrants, or protest the shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old,  they could be met by the following:

The fourth exception claimed by the Army, with regard to the Army’s right to violate Posse Comitatus, is presented to the American people under the veil of the need to protect politicians.

House Resolution 1292 claims any protest which makes a public official feel “threatened” would be illegal and subject to intervention by the U.S. Army. Hypothetically, if 100 protesters were to gather outside of Senator John McCain‘s office in Phoenix, would that be enough to trigger a violent response by the Army? If McCain says he feels threatened, regardless if his claims are legitimate or not, it most certainly would justify the strongest response possible from the Army. Therefore, all a politician has to do is to say they feel threatened by any gathering to have the gathering dispersed and the protesters dealt with in any manner seen fit by the field commander. Make no mistake about it, this is the end of the First Amendment’s right peaceably assemble.

The Militarization of U. S. Police, Finally Dragged Into the Light by the Horrors of Ferguson

By Glenn Greenwald

 

The intensive militarization of America’s police forces is a serious menace about which a small number of people have been loudly warning for years, with little attention or traction. In a 2007 paper on “the blurring distinctions between the police and military institutions and between war and law enforcement,” the criminal justice professor Peter Kraska defined “police militarization” as “the process whereby civilian police increasingly draw from, and pattern themselves around, the tenets of militarism and the military model.”

The harrowing events of the last week in Ferguson, Missouri – the fatal police shooting of an unarmed African-American teenager, Mike Brown, and the blatantly excessive and thuggish response to ensuing community protests from a police force that resembles an occupying army – have shocked the U.S. media class and millions of Americans. But none of this is aberrational.

It is the destructive by-product of several decades of deliberate militarization of American policing, a trend that received a sustained (and ongoing) steroid injection in the form of a still-flowing, post-9/11 federal funding bonanza, all justified in the name of “homeland security.” This has resulted in a domestic police force that looks, thinks, and acts more like an invading and occupying military than a community-based force to protect the public.

As is true for most issues of excessive and abusive policing, police militarization is overwhelmingly and disproportionately directed at minorities and poor communities, ensuring that the problem largely festers in the dark. Americans are now so accustomed to seeing police officers decked in camouflage and Robocop-style costumes, riding in armored vehicles and carrying automatic weapons first introduced during the U.S. occupation of Baghdad, that it has become normalized. But those who bear the brunt of this transformation are those who lack loud megaphones; their complaints of the inevitable and severe abuse that results have largely been met with indifference.

If anything positive can come from the Ferguson travesties, it is that the completely out-of-control orgy of domestic police militarization receives long-overdue attention and reining in.

Last night, two reporters, The Washington Post‘s Wesley Lowery and The Huffington Post‘s Ryan Reilly, were arrested and assaulted while working from a McDonald’s in Ferguson. The arrests were arbitrary and abusive, and received substantial attention — only because of their prominent platforms, not, as they both quickly pointed out upon being released, because there was anything unusual about this police behavior.

Reilly, on Facebook, recounted how he was arrested by “a Saint Louis County police officer in full riot gear, who refused to identify himself despite my repeated requests, purposefully banged my head against the window on the way out and sarcastically apologized.” He wrote: ”I’m fine. But if this is the way these officers treat a white reporter working on a laptop who moved a little too slowly for their liking, I can’t imagine how horribly they treat others.” He added: “And if anyone thinks that the militarization of our police force isn’t a huge issue in this country, I’ve got a story to tell you.”

Lowery, who is African-American, tweeted a summary of an interview he gave on MSNBC: “If I didn’t work for the Washington Post and were just another Black man in Ferguson, I’d still be in a cell now.” He added: “I knew I was going to be fine. But the thing is, so many people here in Ferguson don’t have as many Twitter followers as I have and don’t have Jeff Bezos or whoever to call and bail them out of jail.”

The best and most comprehensive account of the dangers of police militarization is the 2013 book by the libertarianWashington Post journalist Radley Balko, entitled “Rise of the Warrior Cops: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces.”  Balko, who has devoted his career to documenting and battling the worst abuses of the U.S. criminal justice system, traces the history and underlying mentality that has given rise to all of this: the “law-and-order” obsessions that grew out of the social instability of the 1960s, the War on Drugs that has made law enforcement agencies view Americans as an enemy population, the Reagan-era “War on Poverty” (which was more aptly described as a war on America’s poor), the aggressive Clinton-era expansions of domestic policing, all topped off by the massively funded, rights-destroying, post-9/11 security state of the Bush and Obama years. All of this, he documents, has infused America’s police forces with “a creeping battlefield mentality.”

I read Balko’s book prior to publication in order to blurb it, and after I was done, immediately wrote what struck me most about it: “There is no vital trend in American society more overlooked than the militarization of our domestic police forces.” The Huffington Post’s Ryan Grim, in the outlet’s official statement about Reilly’s arrest, made the same point: “Police militarization has been among the most consequential and unnoticed developments of our time.”

In June, the ACLU published a crucial 96-page report on this problem, entitled “War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing.” Its central point: “the United States today has become excessively militarized, mainly through federal programs that create incentives for state and local police to use unnecessarily aggressive weapons and tactics designed for the battlefield.”

8-16-2014 8-34-42 AM

The report documents how the Drug War and (Clinton/Biden) 1990s crime bills laid the groundwork for police militarization, but the virtually unlimited flow of “homeland security” money after 9/11 all but forced police departments to purchase battlefield equipment and other military paraphernalia whether they wanted them or not.  Unsurprisingly, like the War on Drugs and police abuse generally, “the use of paramilitary weapons and tactics primarily impacted people of color.”

Some police departments eagerly militarize, but many recognize the dangers. Salt Lake City police chief Chris Burbank is quoted in the ACLU report: “We’re not the military. Nor should we look like an invading force coming in.” A 2011 Los Angeles Times article, noting that “federal and state governments are spending about $75 billion a year on domestic security,” described how local police departments receive so much homeland security money from the U.S. government that they end up forced to buy battlefield equipment they know they do not need: from armored vehicles to Zodiac boats with side-scan sonar.

The trend long pre-dates 9/11, as this 1997 Christian Science Monitor article by Jonathan Landayabout growing police militarization and its resulting abuses (“Police Tap High-Tech Tools of Military to Fight Crime”) makes clear. Landay, in that 17-year-old article, described “an infrared scanner mounted on [a police officer's] car [that] is the same one used by US troops to hunt Iraqi forces in the Gulf war,” and wrote: “it is symbolic of an increasing use by police of some of the advanced technologies that make the US military the world’s mightiest.”

But the security-über-alles fixation of the 9/11 era is now the driving force. A June article in the New York Times by Matt Apuzzo (“War Gear Flows to Police Departments”) reported that “during the Obama administration, according to Pentagon data, police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.” He added: “The equipment has been added to the armories of police departments that already look and act like military units.”

All of this has become such big business, and is grounded in such politically entrenched bureaucratic power, that it is difficult to imagine how it can be uprooted. As the LA Timesexplained:

An entire industry has sprung up to sell an array of products, including high-tech motion sensors and fully outfitted emergency operations trailers. The market is expected to grow to $31 billion by 2014.

Like the military-industrial complex that became a permanent and powerful part of the American landscape during the Cold War, the vast network of Homeland Security spyware, concrete barricades and high-tech identity screening is here to stay. The Department of Homeland Security, a collection of agencies ranging from border control to airport security sewn quickly together after Sept. 11, is the third-largest Cabinet department and — with almost no lawmaker willing to render the U.S. less prepared for a terrorist attack — one of those least to fall victim to budget cuts.

The dangers of domestic militarization are both numerous and manifest. To begin with, as the nation is seeing in Ferguson, it degrades the mentality of police forces in virtually every negative way and subjects their targeted communities to rampant brutality and unaccountable abuse. The ACLU report summarized: “excessive militarism in policing, particularly through the use of paramilitary policing teams, escalates the risk of violence, threatens individual liberties, and unfairly impacts people of color.”

Police militarization also poses grave and direct dangers to basic political liberties, including rights of free speech, press and assembly. The first time I wrote about this issue was back in 2008 when I covered the protests outside the GOP national convention in St. Paul for Salon, and was truly amazed by the war-zone atmosphere deliberately created by the police:
St. Paul was the most militarized I have ever seen an American city be, even more so than Manhattan in the week of 9/11 — with troops of federal, state and local law enforcement agents marching around with riot gear, machine guns, and tear gas cannisters, shouting military chants and marching in military formations. Humvees and law enforcement officers with rifles were posted on various buildings and balconies. Numerous protesters and observers were tear gassed and injured.

The same thing happened during the Occupy Wall Street protests of 2011: the police response was so excessive, and so clearly modeled after battlefield tactics, that there was no doubt that deterring domestic dissent is one of the primary aims of police militarization. About that police response, I wrote at the time:

Law enforcement officials and policy-makers in America know full well that serious protests — and more — are inevitable given the economic tumult and suffering the U.S. has seen over the last three years (and will continue to see for the foreseeable future). . . .

The reason the U.S. has para-militarized its police forces is precisely to control this type of domestic unrest, and it’s simply impossible to imagine its not being deployed in full against a growing protest movement aimed at grossly and corruptly unequal resource distribution. As Madeleine Albright said when arguing for U.S. military intervention in the Balkans: “What’s the point of having this superb military you’re always talking about if we can’t use it?” That’s obviously how governors, big-city Mayors and Police Chiefs feel about the stockpiles of assault rifles, SWAT gear, hi-tech helicopters, and the coming-soon drone technology lavished on them in the wake of the post/9-11 Security State explosion, to say nothing of the enormous federal law enforcement apparatus that, more than anything else, resembles a standing army which is increasingly directed inward.

Most of this militarization has been justified by invoking Scary Foreign Threats — primarily the Terrorist — but its prime purpose is domestic.

Police militarization is increasingly aimed at stifling journalism as well. Like the arrests of Lowery and Reilly last night, Democracy Now‘s Amy Goodman and two of her colleagues were arrested while covering the 2008 St. Paul protests. As Trevor Timm of the Freedom of the Press Foundation (on whose board I sit) explained yesterday, militarization tactics “don’t just affect protesters, but also affect those who cover the protest. It creates an environment where police think they can disregard the law and tell reporters to stop filming, despite their legal right to do so, or fire tear gas directly at them to prevent them from doing their job. And if the rights of journalists are being trampled on, you can almost guarantee it’s even worse for those who don’t have such a platform to protect themselves.”

 

Ultimately, police militarization is part of a broader and truly dangerous trend: the importation of War on Terror tactics from foreign war zones onto American soil. American surveillance drones went from Yemen, Pakistan and Somalia into American cities, and it’s impossible to imagine that they won’t be followed by weaponized ones. The inhumane and oppressive conditions that prevailed at Guantanamo are matched, or exceeded, by the super-max hellholes and “Communications Management Units” now in the American prison system. And the “collect-it-all” mentality that drives NSA domestic surveillance was pioneered by Gen. Keith Alexander in Baghdad and by other generals in Afghanistan, aimed at enemy war populations. 

8-16-2014 8-36-33 AM

Indeed, much of the war-like weaponry now seen in Ferguson comes from American laws, such as the so-called “Program 1033,” specifically designed to re-direct excessive Pentagon property – no longer needed as foreign wars wind down – into American cities. As the Missouri Department of Public Safety proudly explains on its website, “the 1033 Program provides surplus DoD military equipment to state and local civilian law enforcement agencies for use in counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism operations, and to enhance officer safety.”

One government newsletter - from “the Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO), a little known federal agency that equips police departments with surplus military gear” – boasted that “Fiscal Year 2011 was a record year in property transfers from the US military’s stockpiles to police departments around the nation.” The ACLU report notes: “the Department of Defense operates the 1033 Program through the Defense Logistics Agency’s (DLA) Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO), whose motto is ‘from warfighter to crimefighter.’” The Justice Department has an entire program devoted to “supporting military veterans and the law enforcement agencies that hire them as our veterans seek to transition into careers as law enforcement officers.”

As part of America’s posture of Endless War, Americans have been trained to believe that everything is justified on the “battlefield” (now defined to mean “the whole world”): imprisonment without charges, kidnapping, torture, even assassination of U.S. citizens without trials. It is not hard to predict the results of importing this battlefield mentality onto American soil, aimed at American citizens: “From Warfighter to Crimefighter.” The results have been clear for those who have looked – or those who have been subject to this – for years. The events in Ferguson are, finally, forcing all Americans to watch the outcome of this process.

GLOBALIST BACKED WARS: INTERNATIONAL BANKERS DRIVE WORLD WIDE CRISIS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

Crises will be used to create a “global consciousness” and create pretext for more government control.

Unprecedented numbers of illegal immigrants are crossing into the United States. European countries,

 especially France, are experiencing a surge of illegal immigration due to violence in Syria, Iraq, and other parts of the middle east.

The bigger picture in all of this is the fact that people are fleeing countries that are in a state of chaos due to the nefarious influence of international bankers and the military industrial complex. The people fleeing are victims. They are being used in a greater agenda that goes beyond national politics and rivalries.

A recently leaked report from Customs and Border Protection shows that people from at least 75 different countries are attempting to enter the United States illegally. Many of them are attempting to flee corruption and violence taking place in Syria, Ukraine, and Iraq among other countries. The CBP report states that many people coming from the middle east are making a temporary stop in the European Union before coming to the United States. As reported by the Telegraph, France is currently experiencing an influx of illegal immigration similar to the United States. Afghans, Syrians and others are making an attempt to gain access to Britain, and eventually the United States.

While tensions in these hot spots have been boiling for years, the influence of western powers has recently sparked intense conflict across the globe, triggering an intensified surge of desperate individuals who want nothing more than to live in peace.

Mexico and Latin America

The porous southern border of the United States is the site of deadly standoffs between Mexican drug gangs and Mexican military helicopters shooting at Border Patrol agents. President Obama, during arecent visit to Mexico, pointed the finger at American’s use of illegal drugs and guns for Mexico’s plague of violence.

As reported by Bloomberg in 2010, mega banks including Wells Fargo (Bailed out with $36 billion in taxpayer money in 2008) and Bank of America (Which begangiving credit cards to illegal aliens with no social security numbers in 2007) were caught laundering money to Mexican drug cartels. In total over $300 billion was laundered in operations that were blatantly ignored by Wachovia, now part of Wells Fargo. Among other illegal activities, the money bought planes used to deliver narcotics.

Iraq and the Middle East

The mass slaughter of Christians in Iraq at the hands of the Islamic State is forcing tens of thousands to seek refuge. The terror group

 has its hands on at least 52American made howitzer artillery guns and almost 2,000 Humvees. As Kurt Nimmo reports, a former Al-Qaeda commander recently said that the Islamic State works for the CIA. Nimmo reports, “Na’eem said ISIS, now IS or the Islamic State, is part of the neocon and Israeli “Clean Break” plan to balkanize the Arab and Muslim Middle East.”

Ukraine

Meanwhile in Ukraine, over 100,000 people are fleeing violence that is threatening to spark a hot war between NATO and Russia. As part of a continuing plan to encircle Russia, Billionare George Soros admits that he played a major role in the overthrow of the Ukrainian government.

Predictions of the Ministry of Defense – Ultimate goal of global government

A 2010 report from the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense stated that by 2040 a “global society” will emerge, plagued with tensions brought about by globalization. The report says that “sustained international migration” will “drive the development of a global culture…” Because of the increased migration, tensions will inevitably emerge. “Intrusive global culture” will threaten traditional customs and beliefs and “possibly radicalize” certain groups.

On June 11, 2002 a conference on North American integration was held by the

Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The center, which influences policy making in Washington, is funded by the

 Rockefeller Brothers Fund, The

Gates Foundation and George Soros. During the 2002 meeting, shocking revelations were made regarding the elite’s plans to create a North American Union between Canada, Mexico, and the United States. In order to accomplish this, representatives from various think tanks agreed that a campaign of social engineering needed to re-shape beliefs about national sovereignty and identity.

Bruce Stokes, Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow, National Journal columnist and Chatham House member told the conference that a true “North American Community” would only be born out of the heat of conflict.”

The Pope recently called on the world to embrace illegal immigrants and rejected the “globalization of indifference” in a globalized world. As we can see in the evidence presented in this article, the people suffering across the world do need compassion, but our human drive to help our fellow man is being manipulated.

In a 1997 paper written by Maj. Bart R. Kessler, presented to the Research Department of the Air Command and Staff College, light is shown upon yet another plan on part of globalist think tanks to propagandize the world into accepting their vision for the future. In

Bush’s New World Order: The Meaning Behind The Words,” Kessler shows that in the 1970′s, the World Order Models Project, financed by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the Rockefeller foundation, proposed “strategies of transition” into a new global era. Saul H. Mendlovitz, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, directed the project. Richard A. Falk, also a member of the CFR, contributed academic work.

The goals of the WOMP were to, “…go beyond the nation-state system…to use a much broader range of potential actors, including world institutions, transnational actors, international organization, functional activities, regional arrangements…”

The project sought to use world leaders like the Pope to promote the globalists agenda. Richard Falk wrote,

“Symbolic world leaders such as the Secretary General of the United Nations or the Pope might espouse [the WOMP agenda]… as a program for the future… These kinds of external developments… would initiate a world order dialectic within American politics that would begin to break down decades of adherence to [the Westphalian system] and its infrastructure of values, perceptions and institutions.”

GLOBALIST THINK TANK NORTH AMERICAN COMMUNITY WILL BE FORGED IN THE HEAT OF CONFLICT

The current influx of illegal immigrants into the United States has caught many by surprise, but globalist think tanks have eagerly awaited an event like this for many years.

On June 11, 2002 a conference on North American integration was held by the

Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The center, which influences policy making in Washington, is funded by the

 Rockefeller Brothers Fund, TheGates Foundation and George Soros. During the 2002 meeting, shocking revelations were made regarding the elite’s plans to create a North American Union between Canada, Mexico, and the United States. In order to accomplish this, representatives from various think tanks agreed that a campaign of social engineering needed to re-shape beliefs about national sovereignty and identity.

The “Toward a North American Community” conference focused on the social and ideological aspects of the creation of a North American Community. Presentations were given by representatives from Mexico, Canada, and the United States respectively. The task of each was to present the political and social atmosphere of each country in relation to “North American integration.

” Stephanie R. Golob of Baruch College and member of the Council on Foreign Relations represented the United States.

Golob indicated that the United States was “the greatest obstacle to this process” of integration into a globalized system. She stated that due to this resistance, integration will have to come “from the top-down” through directives from the United States President and his “inner circle.”

Bruce Stokes, Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow, National Journal columnist and Chatham House member told the conference that a true “North American Community” would only be born out of the heat of conflict.

Stokes said, “For those of you, who like me, believe that one of the biggest challenges we face as a society is coming to terms with globalization…  then we must embrace the rough spots” like illegal immigration. Stokes stated that we need to “…use these as teaching experiences… to create a public dialogue about the meaning of becoming a true North American Community.”

Stokes continued, “This is how we will create a North American consciousness and a true North American Community. It will be forged in the heat of conflict, not through a rational discussion, as painful as that may be. It really cannot happen any other way.”

The spectacle of tens of thousands of “unaccompanied minors” is a “teaching experience” that globalist run media is using to manipulate public opinion. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi recently stated in response to the current crisis that the United States and Mexico is “a community with a border going through it.” Pelosi then said that the establishment must view the crisis as an “opportunity.”

In addition to social engineering society to accept globalization, University of California Professor Darrell Y. Hamamoto

 told infowars.com that illegal immigration is about creating a subservient underclass in America. Hamamoto said that the plan is “…to exclude the American middle class from a UC education and create a new demographic of largely immigrant or foreign national undergraduate population that can be re-educated from the ground up and controlled much more readily.”
