What we call “the federal government” isn’t a government. It is not and it never has been. It is a governmental services corporation, which is a different matter entirely.
Please take this outrageous but true statement into your mind and let it rattle around a bit. Savor the fact. Consider the consequences.
The so-called “United States Government” is not a sovereign government of any kind. It is at best an association of sovereign states entered into a mutual services contract with the United States (Trading Company) and its Successors by default.
From the very beginning, the states have been the sovereign units of government. Any power of the “federal government” has been delegated to it by the states, not the other way around.
Nineteen very important powers including production of our money, control of our commerce and trade policies, control of our armed forces (except the militia) and control of our foreign policy were delegated to the British Monarch and the United States (Trading Company) in a quid pro quo in which the British Monarch agreed to act as our Trustee and protector on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways in exchange for these concessions.
That agreement was initially brokered and conceptualized as The Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783, and particularized as The Constitution for the united States of America several years later.
So from the start, there was the “united States of America”— an association of states subscribing to the service to be provided by the United States (Trading Company) and there was the British Servicer doing business as the United States. This has been the cause of a great deal of mostly deliberate confusion.
When the states “assembled” in “Congress” it meant that they elected fiduciary deputies accountable to the states —- people known as “Senators” and “Congressmen” — and sent them to a meeting called a “Congress” of the states to discuss and decide matters of mutual interest and establish a body of law applicable in all states known as the “United States Statutes at Large”.
Things went along well enough for several decades, but the British Monarch and the Pope conspired in secret Breach of Trust to undermine the American Government via the Treaty of Verona (1822).
What then commenced can only be called a gigantic fraud scheme.
The Constitution agreed to by the states has always prohibited anyone holding a foreign title of nobility from holding public elected office in the government at any level. In 1819, this provision was strengthened and ratified by the states as the Titles of Nobility Amendment. As a result no member of the Bar Association bearing the title “Esquire” could serve in the American government in any public elected office.
When Abraham Lincoln, a Bar Member, was elected President of the United States in 1860, he was not eligible to serve as President of the United States of America — the association of sovereign states participating in the Congress.
Do you see the trick now?
It was then and is now permitted for members of the Bar to hold any private corporate office, even elected corporate offices, of the United States (Trading Company) or any other such governmental services corporation that followed.
They were only prohibited from holding public elected office in our government.
Lincoln used his private corporate office, President of the United States, to overthrow the public elected government of the United States of America, and he did it by fraud and similar names deceits.
The so-called “federal government” has operated under conditions of Breach of Trust, fraud, deceit, non-disclosure, and inland piracy ever since, shamelessly substituting its private corporate offices for the public offices we are owed.
Each President since Lincoln has functioned as “President of the United States” and the vast majority of them have been Bar Members ineligible to function as “President of the United States of America” even if they had been properly elected and empowered.
As a result of this egregious and carefully concealed fraud upon the American people, there has been no lawfully elected government since 1860—- merely what appears to be one. Even the great conflict giving rise to this circumstance has been misrepresented as “The American Civil War” when in fact no such “war” can be shown to exist: there was never a valid declaration of war and never a peace treaty ending it. It is simply an illegal mercenary conflict that the perpetrators of all this rot have kept simmering on our shores for 150 years.
Lincoln, like Barack Obama, was a British Crown agent and an attorney who did not meet the requirements to be President of the united States of America, nor even President of the United States of America—-but who was eligible to serve as President of the United States, and in that foreign, private, corporate office— they have wrecked havoc and misery upon the innocent American people.
It is well past the hour in which we must wake up and realize that our supposed friends and allies have been closer to fiends and allegories. The so-called “federal government” is merely a storefront for competing international banking cartels.
The so-called FEDERAL RESERVE cartel claims to have purchased the name and copyrights and trademarks to THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the IMF cartel claims the same about THE UNITED STATES. They are both commercial crime syndicates that deserve nothing but a prompt liquidation of assets and claims and the return of all property to their Priority Creditors, the American states and people.
It’s time that we all rose up with one voice and accused the Roman Pontiff and the British Monarch of the crimes of their predecessors and addressed the Gross Breach of Trust that their predecessors have been guilty of and the equally Gross Fraud that has been practiced against us, together with the crimes of identity theft, press-ganging, inland piracy, unlawful conversion of assets, enslavement and kidnapping that have been the daily fare of their regimes for the past 150 years.
The good names of the States of America and United States of America belong to us as the lawful heirs and Holders in Due Course without respect to any claims made by the banks of the FEDERAL RESERVE. THE UNITED STATES deserves nothing but a swift kick to the curb.
All these fraudulent claims and operations must be exposed and these conditions must be completely reformed. We must work hard to fully restore our lawful government on the land, call together our jural assemblies to operate our actual counties and states, and regain our senses.
For a hundred and fifty years Americans have been asleep at the wheel, being deliberately misled to believe that a governmental services corporation is the same thing as their own lawful government. That gullibility has cost us millions of lives, trillions of dollars, and sullied our name throughout the world as we have been blamed for the lawlessness, treachery, bigotry, and immorality of the pirates that have claimed to represent us and done terrible and oppressive things in our names.
The Bad News is that we have been clueless and trusting enough to allow this. The Good News is that we don’t have to allow it anymore.
If you love your country and value your lives, it is time to sit —hard— on the Archbishops and Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church worldwide. Make them all fully aware of the absolutely immoral and duplicitous actions of generations of Popes with regard to this country—-Popes who have waved olive branches and preached love out of one side of their mouths and then, as the Roman Pontiffs, have secretly pursued war and profit and committed all manner of crimes under cover of the Church’s skirts.
If FRANCISCUS thinks he is going to continue these practices unobserved, let’s give him a good salvo and inform him that no, he is not. Let him know that the entire world is watching and that the Church is not going to be able to play duplicitous games in Breach of Trust without paying the full and awful price for its hypocrisy and criminality and double-mindedness. It is, indeed, time for confession and the making of amends, and if not, it is time for the Roman Cult to be recognized as a Satanic festering cancerous sore in the Body of the Church— a disease that needs to be eradicated both from within and without, or it will most certainly kill its host.
The same basic message needs to be carried to the Lords of the Admiralty, the Lord Mayor of London, and the British Monarch. They have not escaped detection. Their hideous mismanagement of their American concession in Washington, DC, has been duly noted by the Americans as well as the rest of the world—which places them squarely between a rock and a very hard place. All these years that they have been wheedling and cheating and dealing in fraud and pretending to “represent” us —they have misused and abused American Servicemen and women who now know the truth of the matter—-that they have been slaughtered and become unwitting murderers in wars for profit, lied to, and then left abandoned as human flotsam, without jobs, without health care, without educations, without a future.
Our veterans have little to lose and good reason to hate everything that the Admiralty, the Lord Mayor, the Queen, and the Bar Associations have stood for.
The rest of the world that has suffered — seemingly at the hands of the Americans —now knows who the actual culprits are.
And it is high time that we told the Federales where to get off our soil and our backs.

If you are so stupid you still have those feelings of patriotism to this rotten corporation, and or a hundred excuses to sit on your ass, then you deserve what you are getting!!! A good screwing! Consider for a minute what this country could be like if we demanded the elimination of this tyranny. Consider the millions of American lives’ lost in all the wars for profit, but most of all consider what globalism is going to do to your future. At the very least, send this article to every person you can. Write about it in your local newspaper letters to the editor. Or, do you love liars for leaders?

A bunch of ” conspiracy Theories” right?
On 911, 2001, the entire U.S. financial system was going to be replaced with the National Economic and Reformation Act which would kill the corrupt cabal money system. Look up N.E.S.A.R.A. It was the Khazarian Mafia Zionists and their Mossad agents stationed in Fort Lee New Jersey who pulled off this attack to steal gold under the buildings and keep their phony dollar system going.
Trump, who now runs the restored republic, has banned 7 countries from immigrating to America because the cabal has given them Dinar and Zim to exchange for higher prices here.
Trump appointed certain individuals to positions of power to test their loyalty. Those who faltered were exposed and fired.
Special operations troops are in the last phase of arrests which number in the thousands of corrupted officials.
Further arrests by the FBI, and the setting up of trials in March continues for all in the world to see.
It is security that has prevented the roll out of the revaluation and exchanges of currencies as test after test is conducted to deny the old regimes any access to wealth.
Our nation has been a cash cow for these thieves whose illegal IRS sends payments to the Queen and Federal Reserve members and does nothing for the nation.
Everything is changing folks and what you were “mind controlled” to perceive as good was actually rotten to the core. The free stuff was designed to make you compliant and dependent as the secret operation to exterminate minorities would reduce the population to only those individuals who contribute something to the system will be left.
Fema Camps, Rail Cars with handcuffs and guillotines, large coffins, chemtrails, Gwen Towers, GMO’s, Non cancer cures, Mercury in fillings and fluoride in drinking water were contributors to their plan.
The information that you have been denied will be forthcoming soon. Some won’t believe it and some will end their lives rather that face this transition from the dark to the light.

How many times have you heard references to “the Pope”? All your life there has been a Pope, right? And right along beside that, how many times have you heard references to the Pope as “the Roman Pontiff”—-?
I think I was five when I crawled up on my long-suffering Father’s lap and asked, “What are they talking about when they say the Pope is the Pontiff?”
He rolled his eyes heavenward with an aggrieved expression on his face. I am not sure if it was the result of his reflections about the Pope and the Pontiff or the ongoing ordeal of having to answer my questions every day.
“The Pope,” he explained, “is the leader of the Catholic Church. He tells people what to believe about God and Jesus and the meaning of the Bible. But he has another job, too. As the Pontiff, he decides who owns what and how people do business.”
Good old Dad. That’s what the Pope does, that’s what the Pontiff does. Make what you like of it.
Nothing much has changed in 1200 years.
For those who bother to poke into such things, it is no news that the entire concept of corporations was invented by the Roman Curia, the juridical body serving the Roman Pontiff.
The Curia invented all the different kinds of corporations you are familiar with: trusts, C-corps, S-corps, non-profit corporations, cooperatives, foundations, LLPs and LLC’s and every other permutation of “business structure” you can think of except partnerships and sole proprietorships.
None of these corporations we take for granted actually exist. They are all figments of the imagination and always have been, no matter how solid Exxon and the USA, Inc. and GE may appear.
Just like Bridge and Pinochle and Hearts and Poker are all card games, trusts and C-Corps and cooperatives and foundations are all corporations. Just as the card games are defined by their cards and playing pieces and the “rules of play”, so corporations are similarly defined by their structures (like Boards of Directors and Chief Executive Officers) and their rules of play.
The Roman Curia, under the leadership of the Roman Pontiff, creates and defines and sets up the rules of play for all corporations worldwide. That’s why the Pontiff retains the right to amend or repeal the “laws” of any corporation. It’s his game, under his copyright, and he can do what he likes with it.
Governments in the modern world are all corporations, too. So guess what?
That’s right. The Roman Pontiff gets to repeal or amend any law made by any incorporated government or business.
This has nothing to do with the Pope’s role as the head of the Catholic Church. It’s a separate office and a separate roster of functions and it always has been.
Of course we all expect this one single man to be fair and do what is right by everyone, but past history has shown that expectation to be unfounded. Many Roman Pontiffs have been greedy and self-interested and venal and many corporate government CEO’s have ignored the direction of the Pontiff even though he literally owns the game they are playing.
This results in constant wars and economic hardships and vicious market manipulations and the Pontiff stands there, as Francis is doing now, looking very stiff and stern and tight-lipped.
It’s his game, after all. If we want to play his game and use his corporate structures to define our governments, then we should live by his rules, right? And if not by his rules, then whose?
Americans like to think of ourselves as special and Independent and so on, but our government from its infancy was dependent on the “greater government” of the world beyond our shores. There were certain things — nineteen of them to be exact— that we were ill-prepared to do for ourselves. So our states contracted with the Roman Pontiff and the British King to provide those services for us.
That is how we wound up with a Constitution that allows the foreign federal government corporation the delegated authority to control our money, our trade policies, our relations with the rest of the world, our commercial operations, and our military.
We might as well have included the key to our bathrooms.
And that is the way it is and the way it has been from the time the ink dried on the actual Constitution. It was a flagrant give-away of much of the power and responsibility that is naturally ours in exchange for peace and “good faith” service from the Game Masters.
I leave it to you to figure out to what extent their responsibilities have been honored and disregarded, and also to discern the motives behind the great veneration given to the Constitution. So long as we mindlessly cling to it without insisting on the terms of it being honored by the Federales and their Handlers in Britain and Rome, we enslave ourselves very neatly.
As long as we allow ourselves to be mischaracterized as “citizens” of any stripe and allow our states to be “represented” by incorporated “States of States” like the “State of California”, they have free reign over us without the need to honor the actual Constitution at all.
Remember that the Roman Pontiff and his vassal Monarchs control everything that is incorporated. To be free of them and free of their system of things requires operating your own government as an unincorporated Body Politic–and that is precisely what we are meant to do in this country.
Given this dose of reality, it should not be any mystery why I and other Americans dissatisfied with the “service” we have received, would go to Rome to visit the Roman Pontiff. Upon being presented with the evidence of multiple betrayals, gross Breaches of Trust, and overall mis-administration of the “federal government” it is no wonder that Pope Benedict XVI was overwhelmed and little wonder that Pope Francis is dissatisfied.
What remains to us, as Americans, is to wise up and bring forward our claims against the Federales in no uncertain terms and before the entire world—while restoring our rightful unincorporated government at the county and state levels.
The world that the Roman Pontiff and the British Monarch create and control is a world of lies and half-truths that only Satan could inspire, but it is also a world that depends utterly upon rules and contracts for its existence.
The Roman Pontiff(s) and the British Monarch(s) have, over time, been caught red-handed, pants down around their ankles, operating in gross Breach of Trust, neglect, and dishonesty with regard to the only contract they have with us. Their duplicity, deceit, profit-mongering, and dishonor has turned the entire world into a slave market and been the cause of two World Wars. It’s time for it to stop.
All Americans are called upon to demand that the Roman Pontiff and the British Monarch and their Successors at the UN and in FRANCE, honor our agreement known as The Constitution for the united States of America and withdraw their interference against us and our lawful government –permanently– and cease and desist false claims against our people and our assets.
All people worldwide, most especially the Catholics, are called upon to stand with us and exert the necessary pressure to bring about an end to the sale of bonds based on the assets and labor of living people. This secretive form of enslavement being practiced by the Roman Pontiff and the incorporated governments that serve at his pleasure is a gross affront to decency and Law.
The worldwide prohibition against slavery stands and adding to one’s sins by practicing personage against the innocent and pretending that enslavement of PERSONS is allowable when it results in the enslavement of living men and women, is nothing more than the sophistry with which Satan’s kingdom abounds.
These and similar matters are the content of my communications with Benedict XVI and with Pope Francis alike. To the extent that they accept the necessity of reform and do in good faith, in spirit and in truth, honor their obligations to America and the rest of the world from now on, I shall be their willing servant; to the extent that they continue to avoid the moral and contractual obligations that go with their authority, I shall not lift voice or finger in their support.
Those of you who think that you can avoid dealing with the Roman Pontiff in his role as the ruler of the incorporated world, or persist in the childish idea that the Pope has authority only in the Catholic Church, need to wake up and smell the java. Pope Francis holds two offices which together serve to define the circumstances of our lives—whether we are at peace or at war, live in plenty or in poverty, are enslaved or set free. That being so, it behooves all of us to pay strict attention to everything the Pope/Pontiff says and does—and yes, to hold him accountable.
It also behooves us to hold our incorporated governments’ feet first to the fire and to — in the case of America — operate our own unincorporated government in a responsible fashion.
Here’s another quote from Dad— “Rights go with responsibilities. You can’t have one without the other.”

A step-By-Step Guide to Reclaiming your Personal… FREEDOM!
For Years, they have attempted to Hide from us our Nation’s Godly Law…
Lesson 1: Understanding Contracts / Corporations
My new motto is just say, “KNOW MORE!” (Catch the double meaning?) It’s time to understand what is really going on, open our eyes and take back our country. The best way to do this is to hit “them” where it hurts. Their financial statements! What is the most effective way to make others change? Change your behavior toward them. If you want a child to stop being mean, you simply tell that child that until he plays nicely, you won’t play with him anymore. If that child needs you – he will quickly change his ways. So, we tell the police departments, county sheriff offices, states and the feds that they aren’t playing by the rules of full disclosure and tell them we won’t play with them any more! Now, when they change toward us, we still won’t play with them because they are not cute, little children. They are giant corporations that have nothing to do with lawful government. Read that again: They are GIANT CORPORATIONS that have NOTHING to do with LAWFUL government. And that is the point.
America hasn’t been a sovereign nation with lawful government in more than a century. Some even argue that there never have been lawful governments as “every man is independent of all laws, except those prescribed by nature. He is not bound by any institutions formed by, his fellowman without his consent.” [CRUDEN v. NEALE, 2 N.C. 338 (1796) 2 S.E. 70.] And the key phrase there is WITHOUT HIS CONSENT. You must voluntarily give your consent to enter into contracts with these corporations.
Remember what Nietzsche wrote, “Everything the state says is a lie.” The “state” declares they are a “state” and this is true, but what is a “state?” The STATE OF TEXAS is a sub-corporation of the UNITED STATES which is a corporation operating in commerce for a profit. Now some may ask, “What’s the difference if they operate as a corporation?” Well, if they operated as a not for profit corporation and the stockholders were we the people, then that might be okay. But the fact is that every municipality, school district, public works, state, federal agency and the UNITED STATES operate in commerce for a profit and you and I are NOT the stockholders. These corporations are privately held companies! Think about that for a minute. The entity we call government is actually a corporation: a corporation that is not owned by the American people. Who makes the corporations responsible to the people? Do they watch themselves and never harm anyone? No, we have to go sue XYZ Company because they knew their tires were causing hundreds of deaths, but XYZ Company didn’t want to take responsibility because the “bottom line” was more important to them than human life. Once the system went into corporate status, it ceased to be government.
Before becoming a corporation, no one ever had to register to vote. Now they say that everyone must be registered. This is not true. Try it sometime. Go down to vote in a local election in which you are an inhabitant of that area, but are not registered to vote. Tell them that it is your right to vote and that you don’t have to be registered. Most likely you will be allowed to vote, but they won’t be very fond of you. You may be asking: “Doesn’t ‘registered’ simply mean, ‘signed up’?” Not quite.
When you “register” yourself, you “record formally and exactly … in a list or the like.” Sounds innocent enough. Now, whom do you register with? The registrar. A “registrar” is “an officer who has the custody and charge of keeping of a registry or register.” Some examples of registries are registries of copyrights, deeds, wills, motor vehicles and patents. These all have to do with property, not people. Other registries such as registries of births, deaths, marriages, voter registrations, college registrations and the like all have to do with registering natural people. Now we are going to take a leap. What really is a “registry?” “Generally, a ‘registry’ applies to vessels in foreign commerce, whereas ‘enrollment’ refers to coastwise navigation.” When we register ourselves, we are saying that we are vessels in foreign commerce! Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it? But that is why our names magically become capitalized on all of the various registrations: military, voting, birth certificates, death certificates, credit cards, etc. (This essay presumes that you have an understanding of the all capitalized, fictional name vs. proper names that only have the first letter capitalized.) All vessels/ships have capitalized names.
After registering, we are no longer dealt with as natural living souls, but as vessels operating in foreign commerce. What is the “foreign commerce” in which we are operating?” Corporate commerce. Corporations cannot do business with natural beings, so we enter their jurisdiction to do business with corporations when we become a vessel because a vessel is not a natural being. A vessel is a fiction just as a corporation is a fiction and now the two fictions are capable of transacting business. This all ties in with the flag law we’ve been studying. Many people for years now have said that we are under maritime law and had us study maritime/admiralty law for court. After all, the flag flown in all of the courts is a military flag and therefore the law they are advertising by that flag is admiralty. So we are viewed as vessels because we registered as such. We are all vessels in a sea of commerce and all courts are commercial courts for commercial fictions, not lawful Common Law courts for real people.
Okay, now we are a vessel. A vessel enters contracts with other vessels under law of the flag. If we don’t like the laws their flag represents, then we do not contract with that other vessel. The flag is your warning, of what laws will have control of the contract. When you submit a contract (which is itself a vessel) where is your flag? If your contract does not display a flag, then you are tacitly submitting to the laws of their flag. But you say there is no flag displayed on their contract. Right, and wrong. There is no flag on the face of the contract, but there is a flag somewhere in their building or in front of their building. Every bank displays a UNITED STATES flag (not an American flag), most large corporations have the corporate UNITED STATES flag, the corporate STATE flag and their companies own corporate flag flying in front of their buildings. Haven’t you ever wondered why big corporations have their own flags? These represent the codes, rules and regulations that govern their contracts. My kid’s college is a good example – all three flags fly right in front of the Bible building for goodness sake! It is astounding how they disclose their intentions and we haven’t a clue as to what is really going on.
Again, some one will most likely ask, “What is wrong with these flags?” Good question, BIG answer. These flags are for corporations that abide by rules, codes and regulations – NOT LAWS. Allow me an analogy. What corporate name pops into your head when I tell you to think of a L A R G E corporation? Okay, keep that big 500-club name in mind during the following analogy.
ANALOGY: After four grueling interviews with multiple tests, you finally land that job at the BIG Company. The boss sends you down to Human Resources to fill out paper work. One of the forms you must sign is an acknowledgement form for an Employee Handbook that states you have received, understand and will abide by the rules, codes and regulations of the corporation. Some of those rules will deal with dress code, tobacco usage, protocols, harassment, sick time, vacation pay and even disciplinary actions. Excitedly, you sign the acknowledgement (contract) and start work bright and early Monday morning. You are in your finest suit with shoes polished and it’s a real good hair day. I, your best friend, show up to take you out for a celebration lunch. I work for myself though doing landscaping and I’m in my usual attire: overalls, t-shirt and work boots. This outfit doesn’t meet the standards of the company’s dress code and your coworkers look at me kind of funny, but I do NOT work for this company, nor did I agree to abide by its dress code, so they can not tell me how to dress because they have no jurisdiction – no contract with me.
Now, what you must understand is that the “government” is no more than a private corporation. They have corporate codes, rules and regulations for their corporate employees just as that big 500 Company did in our analogy. Since these codes are not laws, why does everyone follow them as if they were law? Why does the corporate “government” think you must follow their codes, rules and regulations? The reason is because you say you are an employee. You state that you are an employee of the UNITED STATES every time you file a Form 1040 with the IRS as that form is only for employees. The IRS takes you at your word and treats you as an employee. The same is true for STATE taxation forms. You also assert that you are a UNITED STATES corporate employee every time you answer yes to the question, “Are you a United States citizen?” How many times have we done that, maybe 20 or more? Think of all of the forms you have signed that ask that very question: W-4s, I-9s, passports, drivers licenses, job applications, school registrations, credit card applications, Brady Bill forms … the list is endless. United States (corporate) citizens are subject to all of the codes, rules and regulations of the company. If you claim national citizenship, please remember that America or your state is the nation to claim-NOT the UNITED STATES corporation!
Personally, I am an inhabitant of Texas and my citizenship is in Heaven.
The bottom line is that when we are dealing with corporations, we are dealing with contracts [Erie Railroad vs. Thompkins]. Just as I did not have a contract with the big 500 Company and did not have to adhere to its dress code, I don’t have a contract with the UNITED STATES corporation so I don’t have to adhere to their employee codes. Everything is by contract. Even the courts are corporations and operate by contract. Everything offered to you either verbally or in writing is a new offer of contract. Think, about these examples and start noticing how many times each day you get offers of contracts: a traffic ticket, a parking ticket, a code enforcement violation for your yard not being mowed, a building permit, a jury duty notice, a notice or bill for property taxes, a bill to re-register you car, a notice or bill for state or federal taxes, a notice from your bank or credit card company that there will be higher charges for late payments, etc., the list is eternal because everything between you and a corporation is an offer of contract.
The good news is that all contracts can be accepted or REJECTED. Within a 72-hour period under the Truth in Lending Act, you can reject an offer of contract. This includes rescinding contracts that you accepted and for whatever reason have changed your mind about accepting. What happens when a police officer pulls you over and gives you a ticket? Do you have a choice as to whether or not you are going to sign that ticket? Of course not! Do you even have the choice as to how you are going to sign the ticket? Not anymore. My brother Steve was stopped last week and he called me to ask how he should sign the ticket. Steve was ready when the police officer returned and handed him the ticket, but the officer told Steve to sign his name and only his name. Wow! Forced contracts under threat, duress and coercion. Is this the land of the free?
It’s decision time. If we start rejecting all offers of contract that demand “money” out of our pockets, we will hit them were it hurts. Eventually they will have no choice but to shut their doors as would any business whose sales have dropped off. The only difference between the corporate “government” and your local five and dime is that you actually get something in return for your “money” at the local five and dime.
For those of you that still believe we have to support our “government” through taxation, I simply point you to Ronald Reagan’s Grace Commission Report of 1984:
100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt and by Federal transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.
This country operates today on the same sources of revenue as it did prior to the income tax -“duties” or “imposts” on imported goods and “excise” taxes on domestic goods that are nonessential items. This is all the revenue required to run the “government.”
The next standard objection is a book in itself and requires a good deal of research to understand, but I want to try to briefly answer one more objection that most people of good moral character will raise in regard to the Federal debt. That objection/question is: “Don’t we have to pay our debts?” If this were an honest debt, that you or I incurred and agreed to pay, then by all means the answer would be an overwhelming YES. However, that is not the case with the Federal debt. The Federal is the UNITED STATES corporation, again, a privately held company that artificially created this outrageous debt and then made you and I believe we were responsible to pay their debts for them. The debt is what the corporate owners created and lent back to their sub-corporations. It’s not even a real debt
– it’s FRAUD (which coincidentally stands for Federal Reserve Accounting Unit Denominations). If that big 500 corporation from our analogy came to you and said, “Hey, we need your help in getting rid of our debt,” you may feel a modicum of sympathy for the corporation, but would you pay their debts for them? NO WAY. Then why are you paying this private company’s artificial and fraudulent debt simply because they titled their corporation “UNITED STATES?”
The corporate “government” is nothing more than a pyramid scam leaching off of the hard working productive sector. Back to my new motto – just say “KNOW MORE!”
All definitions are from [BLACKS LAW DICTIONARY Sixth Edition].
The following accounts should help you understand the point of this essay – everything is about contracts!
Contract Story #1: In February of 2000, 1 was on my way to visit my mom in New Mexico. She just had emergency surgery and needed someone to look after her. The doctors explained that there were heart complications, so I rushed to her side. I, unfortunately, am the queen of tickets, so now “rushing” to me equates to 5 miles over the posted limit. The last thing I wanted was to prolong the trip by having a police officer pull me over. But a lesson was in the making and sure enough a Texas Highway Patrol had nothing better to do than harass me. He badgered me into telling him why I was in a hurry, he proceeded to verify my story by calling my mother AT THE HOSPITAL (as if she didn’t have enough to worry about – she almost lost her life the day before) and then he still writes me a ticket and not for five miles over, but ten!
So I write the judge a letter explaining why we don’t have joinder and I ask him to answer a few questions. Without knowing it, I had rejected his offer of contract. I don’t show up by the date allowed, so the nice judge writes me a letter of extension and gives me two more weeks to appear. I call him and ask him what law he is using to prosecute the case. He doesn’t even understand the question, so I say, “Is it Admiralty, Maritime, Common, Statutory, UCC, what?” To which he replies, “it’s anything I want it to be.” Well that narrows things down, doesn’t it? I then ask him if this is a civil or criminal matter and he says it’s both. So now I don’t have a clue what law to study in order to fight this, nor do I really understand what I’m being charged under. During this phone conversation the judge tells me he isn’t going to have time to go over all of this in person when I come down. I tell him that I am coming down to fight this and that he may want to have the county attorney help him look over the questions in my letter. He didn’t take too kindly to that suggestion. He also said that he didn’t even have a flag in his chambers, so not to worry about jurisdiction.
The day comes to appear in the judge’s chambers to “talk” about the ticket. Wouldn’t you know it; there is a tiny flag in the penholder on the judge’s desk. Well I’ll be, no flag, huh?” There is also a county attorney that has to be present before the judge will allow my husband and I into his chambers. I begin by holding my flag, handing the judge a 4-page letter and telling, him that this is a “Special, not General, Appearance.” The letter explains why the Court and I don’t have joinder. The next twenty minutes is a jurisdictional tug-o-war in which the judge and county attorney, try in earnest to let me to plea including, the judge telling me that he is going to enter a plea for me, to which I responded with, “Judge, you can’t practice law from the bench.” The county attorney finally knows I’m not going to give in, so he asks, “Young lady, do you have a drivers license?” I said, “Yes sir, unfortunately I do.” He then turns to the judge and says, “Judge, she has appeared before you today and she has a drivers license, so she has waived her rights.” I waived my rights????
You know that light bulb that goes off over the heads of the cartoon characters when they get a great idea? At that very moment, that same light bulb appeared over my head. I realized that it was ALL ABOUT CONTRACTS! Thinking quickly, I turned to the judge and asked him to remind the county attorney that I had reserved my rights on the face of the ticket and that I had made a “special appearance” under threat of imprisonment which in no way waives my rights.
The county attorney then asked the judge to grant a continuance so that he could review my 4-page letter. The judge did so and told me to return a month later. I got home and recounted the story for a friend of mine. The friend said, oh Ann, you just gave them jurisdiction, sit down right now and write that judge and tell him you didn’t agree to that continuance. I did just that and told the judge that I wasn’t coming back on that date or any other date. This letter was a bit different. Instead of asking him to dismiss the ticket, which sounds as if I am granting jurisdiction, I demanded him to immediately cease and desist the proceedings under the color-of-law against the Sovereign.
Well, it has been two years and no warrants were ever issued for my arrest. Not only did I have two “insider” friends check to see if warrants were put out on me, but I was arrested (most of the best people are!!!) in December of 2001 on a contempt charge and no outstanding, warrants were on my record. The contempt charge is what I got for trying to help a friend in court. Don’t go into their court if you can help it! I know that sometimes it’s unavoidable and even necessary. You are granting jurisdiction just by being there if you don’t know exactly how to challenge it. Please don’t play their game on their field. They have the home court advantage and the guns to back it up when they feel like it.
Contract Story #2: In 1999, 1 was attempting to help the same friend in story #1. The city animal control division informed him that he couldn’t have all of the animals he was feeding and housing. We, being the good, law abiding people we are, wrote a letter to the judge inquiring as to how the city’s codes could violate the Constitution. There was no response to the letter, so after about a month, we began to inquire as to when a response would be forthcoming. As it turned out, the judge had given the letter to the city attorney and we wound up in her office discussing the matter.
My friend asked questions, while I tape-recorded the conversation and one of his witnesses testified to the city attorney that animal control had actually gone into my friend’s yard and taken some of the animals. The conversation eventually came to the Constitution and flag law. My friend asked what laws the city went by since we believed their codes were in direct violation of the Constitution, at which point the city attorney became visibly upset and practically yelled at my friend. She said, “Mr. Darlak, we go by the CITY OF ABILENE laws, the STATE OF TEXAS laws and the UNITED STATES laws.”
As you would assume, we left that meeting in a very confused state. It took more than a year for us to understand what the city attorney had meant by her statement. She said that the city abides by CORPORATE codes. Since corporate codes are all about contract and we all have the right to contract, the city codes do not abrogate the Constitution, but she couldn’t/wouldn’t disclose that to us.
That is their game, they get you to contract and then you’re stuck, unless you know how to reject their offers of contract. Please retrain your thought processes!!! What you and I were taught was government is nothing more than a privately held corporation! And what you and I were taught were laws are nothing more than corporate codes, rules and regulations that have nothing to do with living souls unless you work as an employee for that company.

“Most Germans, so far as I could see, did not seem to mind that their personal freedom had been taken away, that so much of their splendid culture was being destroyed and replaced with a mindless barbarism, or that their life and work were being regimented to a degree never before experienced even by a people accustomed for generations to a great deal of regimentation … On the whole, people did not seem to feel that they were being cowed and held down by an unscrupulous tyranny. On the contrary, they appeared to support it with genuine enthusiasm.” ― William L. Shirer, The Nightmare Years 1930-40
For too long now, the American people have allowed themselves to be persuaded that the government’s job is to take care of us: to feed us, clothe us, house us, educate us, raise our children, heal our infirmities, manage our finances, protect us from our enemies, guard us against all dangers (real and imaginary), and provide for our every need.
Where Americans go wrong is in failing to recognize that there’s always a catch to such devil’s bargains purportedly carried out for the good of all society.
You want free education for your children? The government can take care of it. In exchange for free public schools, however, your children will be molded and indoctrinated into compliant, obedient citizens who reflect the government’s values rather than your own.
You want free health care? The government can take care of that, too. In exchange, your medical decisions—how you live and die—will ultimately be determined by corporations to whom you are little more than a line item impacting their profit and loss margins.
You want to be insulated from all things that might cause offense? That’s not a problem for the government. Its thought police will use hate crime laws to criminalize speech, thought and actions that may be politically incorrect.
You want a guarantee of safety? Sure, but your local police will also have to be militarized and trained in battlefield tactics, your communities and communications will be subjected to round-the-clock surveillance, and you—the citizenry—will be treated as suspects and enemy combatants.
You want to root out domestic extremism and terrorism? That’s just fine. But in the process of identifying and targeting terrorists, the government will have the power to label anyone who disagrees with its policies as an extremist/terrorist and subject them to indefinite detentions.
Are you starting to get the picture?
This is the terrible price—the loss of our freedoms and the enslavement of future generations—that must eventually be paid for the goods and services rendered by a government whose priorities are the acquisition of ever-more power, control and money.
As the old adage warns: “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.”
Unfortunately, we’ve been on the receiving end of the government’s taxpayer-funded handouts—and its deceptively well-intended dictates—for so long that many Americans have forgotten what it is to think for themselves, provide for themselves, and govern themselves.
Indeed, this age of entitlement is a far cry from the kind of constitutional republic America’s founders envisioned.
Gone is the proud, independent-minded, pioneering spirit of early Americans like my parents who rejected what they called “hand-outs,” worked hard for whatever they had, protected their homes and families, and believed the government’s job was to govern based on the consent of the governed and not dictate.
Contrast those fiercely-independent, early Americans who took to heart James Madison’s admonition to distrust all those in power with today’s citizens who not only expect the government to care for their needs but have blindly entrusted the government with vast, growing powers.
By giving the government the green light to act in loco parentis and treat the citizenry as children in need of caretakers, “we the people” have allowed ourselves to be demoted and infantilized, reduced from knowledgeable, independent-minded, capable masters of a republic to wayward, undisciplined, dependent, vulnerable children incapable of caring for ourselves.
It’s time to grow up.
Incredibly, despite the fact that we allowed the government to become all-knowing, all-powerful and all-mighty in the mistaken belief that it would make our lives safer, easier and more affluent, we’re still shocked when that power and might is used against us.
It’s time to stop being so gullible and so trusting.
Even when the headlines blare out the news about SWAT team raids gone awry, police shootings of unarmed citizens, roadside cavity searches of young women, children being shackled and tasered, and Americans jailed for profit in private prisons, we still somehow maintain our state of denial until suddenly we’re the ones in the firing line being treated like suspects and criminals, having our skulls cracked, our doors smashed, our pets shot, our children terrorized, and our loved ones jailed for non-offenses.
It’s time to remove those rose-colored, partisan-tinted glasses and wake up to the fact that our nation of sheep has given rise to a government of wolves.
Even though, deep down, we have suspected that the system is run by an elite who views the citizenry as little more than cattle destined for the slaughterhouse, we’re still shocked to find ourselves treated like slaves and economic units.
How could we not have seen it coming?
How long has the writing been on the wall?
How could we have been so blind, deaf and dumb to the warnings all around us?
Unfortunately, it happens this way in every age, in every place where freedom falls and tyranny flourishes.
As Aldous Huxley recognized in his foreword to Brave New World: “A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers.”
This is how the seeds of authoritarianism are planted and watered and cultivated into aggressive, invasive growths that can quickly dominate an environment.
Remember, tyrants don’t always come to power in a show of force. Often, they sweet-talk their way to absolute power, buoyed along by a wave of populist demand for someone to save the country from economic, military and political crises.
As historian Jim Powell writes for Forbes:
Hitler didn’t take over a small government with an effective separation of enumerated, delegated and limited powers. He took over a large welfare state… He dealt with unemployment by introducing forced labor for both men and women. Government control of the economy made it virtually impossible for anyone to seriously threaten his regime. Hitler added secret police, death camps and another war machine. The German educational system, which had inspired so many American progressives, played a major role in all this… the government gained complete control of schools and universities, and their top priority was teaching obedience. The professorial elite promoted collectivism. The highest calling was working for the government.
It can easily happen here.
In fact, the early signs of this downshift are all around us if you only know where to look.
You can smell it in the air: there’s danger coming. A recent New Yorker article reveals the lengths some of the wealthiest in America are going to in order to survive an apocalyptic breakdown of society: isolated refuges, bunkers, gas masks, generators, solar panels, ammunition, etc.
You can see it in the changes taking place all around you: the government is preparing for something ominous. For example, the Pentagon is using a dystopian training video to prepare special forces to deal with the urban challenges of megacities: criminal networks, illicit economies, decentralized syndicates of crime, substandard infrastructure, religious and ethnic tensions, impoverishment, economic inequality, protesters, slums, open landfills, over-burdened sewers, and a “growing mass of unemployed.”
You can hear it in the news coming out of the independent media: the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches have already weakened our long-established bulwarks against tyranny by their constant undermining of the Constitution and the president’s amassing of imperial power.
We are no longer a constitutional republic.
The American dream is turning into a living nightmare.
We are fast moving towards full-blown fascism.
So what’s the answer?
The powers that be can—and will—continue to distract us with electronic gadgets and entertainment news, they can seduce us with promises they have no intention of keeping, they can drug us with politics packaged to resemble religion, and they can use the schools to breed a populace of compliant slaves.
In the end, however, the choice of whether to keep drinking the Kool-Aid or reject the false prophets and promises of the police state—a.k.a. fascism or totalitarianism or tyranny—rests with “we the people.”
After all, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it was “we the people” who struck this devil’s bargain in the first place, trading our liberties for dubious promises of prosperity, security and advancement.
Through our inaction, our apathy and our unwillingness to do the hard work of holding the government accountable, perhaps “we the people” have been the greatest menace to freedom.
Perhaps all of this is our fault.
My parents’ advice was that if you made a mess, you had to clean it up.
No one else is going to clean this mess up for us, certainly not anyone on the government’s payroll.
As Jim Powell rightly concludes: “Ultimately, liberty can be protected only if people care enough to fight for it, because everywhere governments push for more power, and they never give it up willingly.”
So let’s stop buying into the fairytale that politicians are saviors, capable of fixing what’s wrong with our communities and our lives.
Let’s stop expecting the government to solve all our problems.
Stop playing the partisan game that paints anyone not of your political persuasion as evil.
Stop defending the insanity of an immoral system of government that sees nothing wrong with bombing innocent civilians, jailing innocent citizens, and treating human beings as little more than cattle.
Stop validating a system of laws, tactics and policies that are illegitimate, egregious or blatantly unconstitutional.
While you’re at it, start taking responsibility for your lives—and your freedoms—again. And maybe, just maybe, there will be some hope for tomorrow.

It’s the Banks!
January 24th, 2017 by olddog
PLEASE READ OLDDOGS COMMENTS FOLLOWING THIS ARTICLE
By Anna Von Reitz
The banks control the governments, not the other way around. It has been this way for 150 years in Britain, the Commonwealth countries, the US, Germany, most of Europe, most of Asia, most of Africa…. and when a government tries to assert itself and make its own decisions and adopt its own currency for the benefit of its own people, as Libya’s government did and as Iran’s government has, it is promptly attacked by all the other governments. Why? Because the banks run the governments as storefront governmental services corporations, and the banks like it that way.
It gives them a free hand and world dominance. They get to use the resources of the entire planet any way they please. They get to regulate and de-regulate themselves in whatever way is most advantageous to them. Forget the good of the people or the country they are supposed to be representing.
Just look at what FDR did to THE VIRGINIA COLONY CORPORATION when he shut it down and opened THE UNITED STATES, INC.? And when he bankrupted the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC.? These were predatory corporate take-overs and mergers—- and we all paid for them.
Look at what the Federal Reserve Banks did to the American states and people during the Depression? The suffering and losses that the American states and people endured were enjoyed as benefits and bargains by the perpetrators of the artificial Boom of the 1920’s and the same self-interested men glutted even more profit from the Bust of the Great Depression.
Those responsible, including FDR, should have been tried as criminals, not lauded as heroes; the people were not sophisticated enough to recognize what the banks and their willing drones, the politicians, had foisted off on them. Then as now, they slumbered on, secure in the comforting but false assumption that this was their government and their government wouldn’t harm them.
Let’s not forget the sanctimonious role of the members of the Bar Associations colluding with the banks and their sub rosa employees, the politicians— papering everything over and reassuring the public that it was all “legal” and proper.
Perhaps that was the death-knell of sanity in America, when the members of the Bar started calling everything “legal” and not enough voices objected.
It signaled that the American people no longer remembered the difference between “lawful” — the Law of the Land — and “legal” — the Law of the Sea.
Another death knell came when people started being confused between the “people of the United States” and “citizens of the United States”, and millions in a Zombie-like trance, beguiled and trusting what they believed to be their own dear government, agreed and said, yes, we are citizens….
At each juncture the perpetrators eased in and raped the sleeping Body Politic.
The banks and their buddies have run rampant for a century and a half and despite all the miseries and expense of constant wars, despite the loss of millions of our sons and daughters, despite the malaise of our economy, the burgeoning welfare class, the press-ganging of our Mothers and daughters to work as second wage earners merely to scrape by, the merciless inflation of the only currency available for use, the increasingly reckless, arrogant, coercive, and abusive attitude of the quote-unquote “government”—- we all managed to stagger along, just barely, kept in constant fear of the Internal Revenue Service on one hand, and predatory law suits on the other.
Here, in the richest country on Earth, supposedly living the good life in the victorious bastion of Freedom— we have been enslaved and swindled by our employees, bankers, and lawyers on a crime spree that would make Ramses of Egypt blush.
Quadrillions of dollars-worth of actual hard assets, gold and silver, jewels and art work, artifacts and precious documents, are on deposit with these same banks. These riches belong to people who are the beneficiaries of the “Historic Trusts”. These trust deposits are supposed to be managed by Trustees, who are appointed to their role or who inherit the positions, sometimes for many generations.
Instead of honoring their obligation to the Depositors, the banks are holding onto the assets of the Historic Trusts and refusing to allow the lawful Trustees to access these assets and use them as the Donors stipulated. The banks are acting as self-interested robbers—again—pure and simple.
The oldest Historic Trusts were founded in late Antiquity, at the time of the Roman collapse. Through the Dark Ages and well into the Renaissance, Historic Trusts were used to collect, protect, and transfer the wealth of men and organizations. By far the most common and among the richest Historic Trusts are those founded by Spanish Conquistadors and by the Spanish Monarchs through the early 1800’s.
These vast depositories of actual asset wealth were, for the most part, passed on by the original owners for the benefit of places and people, including their own families, home towns, favorite places, charities, churches, and even their professions…. and are today ear-marked by the current Trustees and Beneficiaries for the benefit of all Mankind.
The bankers have two-blocked all effort to secure the release of these vast stores of assets. They have pitilessly seen the photos of starving children in Africa and called them, “Monkeys”. They have swathed themselves in silk suits and fur and lived in the finest homes and considered themselves very wise and superior to the Common Man, who they have referred to as, “Livestock”.
They have self-righteously donated dribs and drabs to charity and special causes, most of them calculated to benefit the banks and their pet projects, or used to promote their own government storefronts, or to pay off politicians, or to reward their faithful servants in the Bar Associations. They’ve made themselves out to be great philanthropists– using money they stole or coerced or gained by enslaving and making the lives of others miserable. And via the spilled blood of the innocent slaughtered in wars for profit.
This is how we have the spectacle of the World Bank, IBRD, and others caught red-handed with gold and other assets confiscated from our grandparents and great-grandparents —– pretending that this gold just appeared out of nowhere in their coffers and also pretending that they don’t know where it came from.
We know where it came from. For starters, it came from my Grandmother’s wedding ring, twisted off of her finger by foreign commercial mercenaries employed by FDR.
Observe how the World Bank and IBRD tried to wash their guilty hands by offering to give our gold away to the rest of the world?
And that is just $387 billion-worth. That’s chump change.
The failure of the World Bank/IBRD to return our confiscated gold to us is a tiny, almost trivial bit of the dishonesty that the banks, politicians, and lawyers have nurtured into a festering epidemic– an epidemic of institutionalized corruption that is overwhelming and poisoning the whole planet.
So now they’ve got themselves in a spot. And the propaganda machines just aren’t working anymore. Let’s cover some of the high points.
The US Dollar isn’t worthless paper. It is in fact asset-backed by oil, both crude and refined oil products. That’s why it is called the “Petrodollar”. So let’s get that myth dismissed right now.
The US Dollar also isn’t the American Dollar. Let’s get that nasty confusion cleared up, too. Our Dollar is a unit of exceedingly pure silver. Always has been.
And let’s pop the Gold Bubble, too.
The sudden insist-on-gold mentality among Chinese investors is based on fear encouraged by self-interested sellers of gold—and equally unprincipled Chinese hucksters hoping to make a fortune by running up the worldwide price of gold.
The grandsons of the same men who set up the scam on Jekyll Island have moved their operations to China. Why? — to spring a trap fourteen decades in the making, but simple enough in design:
Collect, confiscate, impound, steal, import, control by hook or by crook all the gold in the world, and then force the grandsons and granddaughters of the people you stole the gold from to buy it back from you at wildly inflated prices. Lie and pretend that the world’s gold reserves are much smaller and therefore more precious than they really are.
Which brings me back to the issue of the Historic Trusts and the quadrillions of dollars-worth of hard assets cashiered away for hundreds of years, all being held captive by the banks that have no right of any kind to hold those assets against the Will of the Depositors, the rights of the Trustees, and the welfare of the Beneficiaries.
There is right now in the Central Bank of Mexico a huge deposit of Spanish gold that belongs to the indigenous peoples, the sons of Spanish pioneers and the daughters of American cowboys now living in the Western United States. It was placed on deposit there are as a humanitarian bequest by the King of Spain, who intended that it be spent on infrastructure and educational programs, hospitals, and all the other things that people throughout this region needed in 1834.
The gold was never delivered because other interests set up new, untrustworthy government storefronts that were not committed to spending the money according to the King’s wishes, so there it sits— more than 150 years later, gathering interest and value every year. It has grown into a very substantial trust, able to support new infrastructure, new industries, new social services, new means of transportation, medical research, cultural preservation, and vast, vast humanitarian relief to some of the poorest of the poor in America— no more photos of Navajo Elders squatting in front of a five gallon pail turned into a dangerous fuming charcoal stove trying to keep warm.
The banks are two-blocking the use of these and similar funds throughout the world because a few insanely greedy individuals refuse to come to an accommodation with the Trustees of the Historic Trusts. They aren’t content to make 2 or 3 or even 10 times profit on the gold they have stolen, confiscated, and impounded. No, they want profits in the neighborhood of 100 times what they have invested. They think they will just sit on the Historic Trusts and outright steal them and nobody will have the resources to bring them to Justice. They think they can discount the actual Trustees, the Beneficiaries— and the Law, by handing off the management responsibility to a Third Party, who they also propose to control and boss around.
Why not? They literally employ — in your name, of course — all the politicians you send to Washington and all the legislators sitting in “State of State” legislatures throughout the country.
All these people you think of as your representatives are literally bought and paid for corporate franchise employees of the banks running the governmental services corporations you have also mistaken to be your lawful government. Their only actual obligation is to make profit for the local “State of State” franchise.
This is their job and they can’t do anything else, because a commercial corporation is a psychopathic entity by definition. The fiduciary deputies of such an organization are allowed to worship only one god—–profit at any cost. That’s the way commercial corporations operate and unknown to you that is what nearly all the county, state, and federal government operations have become: self-interested commercial corporations.
That’s also why banks are the horrible institutions they are. If their Boards of Directors spent one penny that wasn’t aimed at making more profit for the shareholders and investors of the banks, they would not only lose their jobs, they would be sued and hounded and disgraced.
When you talk to the men in charge of the major banks and commercial corporations, they are compulsively fixated on making profit —and too many of them are willing to tear down and ruin the Earth and kill the people on it, all in pursuit of profit—for some numbers on a screen.
If you are sickened by this, and you should be, you will now know for sure that banks, governments, and courts are all in desperate need of reform and the entire concept of the commercial corporation must be revisited. Mankind is profoundly endangered by continuing to shelter psychopathic organizations in our midst. We can no longer turn a blind eye to the social and environmental and human cost of commercial corporations run amok.
Everyone reading this is the heir to a vast fortune, yes, even the entire Earth, is yours and subject to your dominion. Vast stockpiles of gold and riches are set aside for you, because one way or another, everyone on this planet is a beneficiary of one or another of the Historic Trusts.
These are the storehouses of the Lord, set aside for this time. In 2008, Pope Benedict XVI ordered them to be opened. As of 2017, here we still sit, waiting on Francis and the Curia and the Vatican Chancery Court.
There was a final sacrifice in Canaan 2000 years ago. A young man put aside his life for the sake of his friends and his love of the Earth and all Mankind. He paid it as the ransom for all people of all races and all religions forevermore. He paid it for the sheep and for the goats alike. Even the profit-mad bankers. He paid the price of all our debts in all jurisdictions forever. And when I say all debts and all jurisdictions— I mean exactly that: all debts.
Let that sink in.
Not just for Christians. Not just for Hebrews. This was done for all Mankind. Everywhere. Regardless of belief. Regardless of faith. And then, one more extraordinary thing—- having purchased us, he set us free and honored the Law of Heaven.
He set us free from all debts for all time, but to fulfill what is written and to make all things correct, I have presented the Payment Bond and made it effective for one thousand years beginning January 6, 2017 through January 6, 3017. This is for the redemption of the Kingdom of God, and all those NAMED as part of it. This ax fell on the Vatican Chancery Court on the Day of the Three Kings, the traditional day when the kings of the Earth bring their gifts to the King of Heaven.
So now the die is cast, and Pope Francis and his entire organization is held to account for allowing the imposition of debt where none exists, for failure to release the Historic Trusts for the relief of Mankind, for the creation of commercial corporations by the Roman Curia and for allowing these diabolical inventions of the mind to run rampant upon the Earth.
The Indemnity Bond posted for the people of Earth is without limit. The first Set-Off Bond is for $100 billion dollars in silver, renewable as needed. And the Payment Bond, AMRI00003, is good for a thousand years— after which we will have our final Visitation and all will be fulfilled.
I am sorry for all my own sins and apologize to those people I have offended by entitling this series of essays with the tag line: Or, Stop Being Stupid. I think that it is obvious that we and many generations before us have been stupid, dull, slow, gullible, complacent, unwary, and the list goes on. How else have we been so deceived?
I think it is also obvious that, yes, we do have a choice in the matter. We can go on believing the lies and the fairytales— and go on being enslaved in the Land of the Free—- or we can face the facts and jerk awake and ask the questions we need to ask— and foremost among them, how is this even possible?
How have the people of the whole world been deceived, defrauded, and misled for thousands of years? It stands firmly on the record that we have been.
People often say to me, “This has the ring of truth!”
There’s a reason for that. It sounds true because it is true. Once you step back and really think about it, it’s obvious. It’s right in front of our faces. It is written in our history, revealed in our holy books, repeated in our Laws, blazoned across the heavens, and resonating in our DNA. We know the Truth. We just have to admit it to ourselves and then declare it and share it.
Billions of people on this planet are suffering and going without the basics of life for no good reason. Other lives are rendered truncated and miserable, crippled by artificially manufactured scarcity—- lacks deliberately created by banks, governments, and other commercial corporations via unlawful monopolization and manipulation of commodity markets and natural resources.
This is being done to the Heirs of Creation, the Children of the True God, the living people who are owed the benefits of the Historic Trusts regardless of their race, religion, or nation.
It’s time that the banks are brought to “an accommodation” with respect to their activities interfering in the operation of our lawful government and withholding access to the benefit of our trusts both public and private, and the release of the hegemonies they have established to control our lives, our labor and our use of our own natural resources.
It’s time to examine the purposes of banks and other commercial corporations and to question any necessity for their continued existence in their present forms.
We must remember that the Roman Curia created the entire concept of corporations. It is their responsibility to control them and to redefine them as necessary to ensure their proper functioning. When a dream turns into a nightmare and the pet becomes rabid, it’s time for the owners to wake up and either find the cure or put the creature down.
The banks and their government storefronts and the other commercial corporations pillaging the people and raping the planet must be fundamentally and permanently reformed. The Curia is the international body responsible for doing this and the Roman Pontiff is the official responsible for implementing it.
I have waited nine long years for the Curia to address the obvious and pungent problem. I have marked the days since the order was given by Benedict XVI to open the Lord’s storehouses and provide relief to the people of this planet. And now I have presented the Payment Bond to the Vatican Chancery Court.
In all these ways and for all these reasons, Pope Francis and the Roman Curia and the Vatican Chancery Court stand at the epicenter of this essential conflict between the commercial corporations and the beneficiaries of the Divine Trust. As with any trust, the Will of the Donor and the good of the Beneficiaries must be honored by the Trustees.
Otherwise, they must be recognized as False Trustees and ousted for cause.
In the nine years since Benedict gave the order to open the Lord’s storehouses, the people of this planet have continued to suffer in every corner. The Historic Trusts remain in lock-down imposed by the banks, which also refuse to release credit on the interest owed. The Curia shimmy-shuffles back and forth and takes no action to rein in, much less redefine, the limits and objectives of the banks and other commercial corporations. The Vatican Chancery Court likewise hovers in interminable call-waiting status long after the facts have been established and the issues ripened for decision.
As of January 6, the books have been balanced. They must stay balanced for 1,000 years no matter what else anyone may do.

You need to read this because the World Economic Forum does carry some weight. Mostly around their waist because their heads are completely empty. They must surely believe that we are dumber than rocks if they think we are going to stand still and let corporations have all our money, and that is exactly what this is all about. Folks, digits do not have any value, they are just a medium of exchange like checks, and just who is dumb enough to exchange digits for money. I don’t mean just transaction digits because that has been going on all our life, but their real objective is to steel your cash. Under the pretense of making money safer! Well digits have no intrinsic value and you can only use them for what they allow you to purchase! Remember the word (ALLOW!) “To let somebody or yourself have something, often a benefit or pleasure of some kind.” But what if the bank does not want you to buy a particular item! ?
Moving to a digital currency could have big advantages, says Joseph Stiglitz

This article is part of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2017
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already removed 86% of his country’s currency from circulation in an attempt to curb tax evasion, tackle corruption and shut down the shadow economy.
Should the US follow suit?
Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist, thinks so. Phasing out currency and moving towards a digital economy would, over the long term, have “benefits that outweigh the cost,” the Columbia University professor said on day one of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos.
Stiglitz was speaking in the session Ending Corruption alongside Mark Pieth from the Basel Institute of Governance and APCO Worldwide Founder and Executive Chairman Margery Kraus. Stiglitz and Pieth co-authored a report, Overcoming the Shadow Economy, in November last year.
Quantifying the scale of the problem, Stiglitz said: “You can put it into the context of one of the big issues being discussed in Davos this year – the backlash against globalization, the darker side of globalization … The lack of transparency in global financial markets, the secrecy havens that the Panama Papers exposed, just reinforced what we already knew … There is a global framework for both corruption and tax evasion and tax avoidance.
“The fact that you can hide ill-gotten gains so easily in these secrecy havens really provides incentives for people to engage in this activity as they can get the economic returns and then enjoy the benefits of those returns. If there were not these secrecy havens then the benefits from engaging in these kinds of illicit activity would be much diminished.”
One of the countries that has not done enough to fight corruption is the US, Stiglitz went on to say, and one remedy could be to phase out cash and embrace digital currencies.
“I believe very strongly that countries like the United States could and should move to a digital currency,” he said, “so that you would have the ability to trace this kind of corruption. There are important issues of privacy, cyber-security, but it would certainly have big advantages.”
Stiglitz is not the only Davos economist to make the case for a “less-cash” society. Harvard’s Kenneth Rogoff has argued for two decades that a society awash with cash contributes to the growth of the underground economy. Rogoff believes large-denomination bank notes, rarely used by ordinary people and businesses, should be phased out. “Cash facilitates crime because it is anonymous, and big bills are especially problematic because they are so easy to carry and conceal
Kenneth Rogoff: Why we need a less-cash society’

More on the agenda
The world is awash in paper currency, with major country central banks pumping out hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth each year, mainly in very large denomination notes such as the $100 bill. The $100 bill accounts for almost 80% of the US’s stunning $4,200 per capita cash supply. The ¥10,000 note (about $100) accounts for roughly 90% of all Japan’s currency, where per capita cash holdings are almost $7,000. And, as I have been arguing for two decades, all this cash is facilitating growth mainly in the underground economy, not the legal one.
I am not advocating a cashless society, which will be neither feasible nor desirable anytime soon. But a less-cash society would be a fairer and safer place.
With the growth of debit cards, electronic transfers, and mobile payments, the use of cash has long been declining in the legal economy, especially for medium and large-size transactions. Central bank surveys show that only a small percentage of large-denomination notes are being held and used by ordinary people or businesses.
Cash facilitates crime because it is anonymous, and big bills are especially problematic because they are so easy to carry and conceal. A million dollars in $100 notes fits into a briefcase, a million dollars in €500 notes (each worth about $565) fits into a purse.
Sure, there are plenty of ways to bribe officials, engage in financial crime, and evade taxes without paper currency. But most involve very high transaction costs (for example, uncut diamonds), or risk of detection (say, bank transfers or credit card payments).
Yes, new-age crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin, if not completely invulnerable to detection, are almost so. But their value sharply fluctuates, and governments have many tools with which they can restrict their use – for example, by preventing them from being tendered at banks or retail stores. Cash is unique in its liquidity and near-universal acceptance.
The costs of tax evasion alone are staggering, perhaps $700 billion per year in the United States (including federal, state, and local taxes), and even more in high-tax Europe. Crime and corruption, though difficult to quantify, almost surely generate even greater costs. Think not just of illegal drugs and racketeering, but also of human trafficking, terrorism, and extortion.
Moreover, cash payments by employers to undocumented workers are a principal driver of illegal immigration. Scaling back the use of cash is a far more humane way to limit immigration than building barbed-wire fences.
If governments were not so drunk from the profits they make by printing paper currency, they might wake up to the costs. There has been a little movement of late. The European Central Bank recently announced that it will phase out its €500 mega-note. Still, this long overdue change was implemented against enormous resistance from cash-loving Germany and Austria. Yet even in northern Europe, reported per capita holdings of currency are still quite modest relative to the massive outstanding supply in the eurozone as a whole (over €3,000 per capita).
Southern European governments, desperate to raise tax revenue, have been taking matters into their own hands, even though they do not control note issuance. For example, Greece and Italy have been trying to discourage cash use by capping retail cash purchases (at €1,500 and €1,000, respectively).
Obviously, cash remains important for small everyday transactions, and for protecting privacy. Northern European central bankers who favor the status quo like to quote Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoevsky: “Money is coined liberty.” Of course, Dostoevsky was referring to life in a mid-nineteenth century czarist prison, not a modern liberal state. Still, the northern Europeans have a point. The question is whether the current system has the balance right. I would argue that it clearly does not.
A plan for reining in paper currency should be guided by three principles. First, it is important to allow ordinary citizens to continue using cash for convenience and to make reasonable-size anonymous purchases, while undermining the business models of those engaged in large, repeated anonymous transactions on a wholesale level. Second, any plan should move very gradually (think a decade or two), to allow adaptations and mid-course corrections as unexpected problems arise. And, third, reforms must be sensitive to the needs of low-income households, especially those that are unbanked.
In my new book, The Curse of Cash, I offer a plan that involves very gradually phasing out large notes, while leaving small notes ($10 and below) in circulation indefinitely. The plan provides for financial inclusion by offering low-income households free debit accounts, which could also be used to make government transfer payments. This last step is one that some countries, such as Denmark and Sweden, have already taken.
Scaling back paper currency would hardly end crime and tax evasion; but it would force the underground economy to employ riskier and less liquid payment devices. Cash may seem like a small, unimportant thing in today’s high-tech financial world, but the benefits of phasing out most paper currency are a lot larger than you might think.
So this is how they are going to convince us how wonderful a cashless society will be — a society based on digital currency. There is so much corruption because of cash. Get rid of the cash and make every transaction that occurs have to go through a computer for someone’s bank account to reflect some kind of payment and we will get rid of all the money laundering, drugs, etc. It might be believable if governments around the world were not the entity behind most of the crime and money laundering. And how hard is it for them to set up a second system of payments to continue on their merry road of money laundering??? Not very. MB

Taxidermist in Magnolia, Delaware (born in Lexington, SC)
Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine. I enlisted with LBJ and saw just what a Democrat clusterflock was all about. I went to Vietnam and saw how we were constantly and incessantly bombarded with micromanagement from Washington that got thousands of military people killed. I wonder sometimes if I’ll get to heaven, but if I go to hell, I’m sure I’ll still be a few hundred floors above those bastards Robert McNamara, LBJ, John Kerry, Jane Fonda, and yes, even the “hero”, John McCain.
After Johnson “abdicated” rather than having his ass waxed, I lived through Nixon who was hawkish but allowed the generals (and there WERE a few real generals back then versus now) run the show. He was so out of touch that he never knew North Vietnam was about to surrender when the Paris Accord was presented. Only God could help us after Gerald Ford was beaten by Jimmy Peanuts who’d been funded by Saudi money. The military was turned into Section 8 and even the White House suffered the austerity.
Then the light began to shine and Ronald Reagan swept into the fray. He not only loved the country and the military, they loved him back. Esprit d’corps was off the scale during his presidency. The Liberals were slowly turning into socialists, however, and about this time all the draft dodgers of the 1960’s who’d been given amnesty by Jimmy Peanuts were turning out college graduates with degrees in socialism.
Bush 1 was an enigma from the CIA and though he never did much either way, he NEVER DID MUCH EITHER WAY.
Welcome to Bill Clinton. Clinton spent most of his two terms wagging the dog and creating the Oral Office, sending a bomber to blow up Quaddafi’s tent and killing a goat or two, while allowing the UN to set up the infamous Black Hawk Down situation. He made history by becoming only the second president to be impeached.
I actually felt sorry for Bush 2. He was doomed to infamy from the start. He thought most of America was still the ‘rah rah’ patriots of WWII when they were simply socialists waiting to feed him to the sharks.
Then there came the Manchurian Candidate with a faked (OK Democrats, let’s say “of questionable origin” to assuage your PC brains) birth certificate, who’d gotten a free ride through college under a foreign student exemption, and whose college records and complete life history had been sealed. (We know more about Thomas Jefferson’s bastard children than we do about Obama, Michelle, OR their two kids.) From his inaugural address, he slandered America and within days had begun to encourage dissension of the races as well as slandering police who “acted stupidly.” That was mild to the crap that would come in doubling the national debt from what had been built by ALL THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS COMBINED, feeding us bullspit about how Muslims built this country, and nationalizing American industries. Fueled by George Soros’ money and using the Air Force fleet as his personal charters, he appointed malcontents and traitors into positions of authority. He trashed the Constitution by installing “czars” (interesting he chose a title like that) to bypass Congressional authority. By that time, Congress was completely corrupt on both sides of the aisle. No one had balls to impeach this charlatan.
Mysteriously, the lone outspoken conservative Supreme Court Justice suddenly dies in his sleep at an Obama pal’s hunting lodge and the Supreme Court is evenly split. Finally, Congress shows some balls and rejects Obama’s nomination. The Libtards aren’t worried because the fix is in. Soros has paid demonstrators to cause turmoil at all the Republican gatherings, Obama concedes that illegal aliens should vote as they won’t be prosecuted, and Soros-manufactured voting machines are caught switching votes in certain precincts. Hillary has cheated her way to the nomination and her lies are completely ignored by the brainwashed minions of sycophants who follow her.
But a shocking thing happened on the way to the forum. Middle America had had enough and although the pollsters and the pipers tried to convince them not even to bother to vote, they were fed up with the denizens of the swamp. It was time. Florida was designated a “swing” state ignoring that all those old retirees living in St. Petersburg, and the fed up Cuban Americans of Miami weren’t interested in their platform. Ohio and Pennsylvania, where coal production was blacklisted and where Obama had ridiculed them for “clinging to their Bibles and their guns,” lay awaiting this supposed “landslide” Hillary vote and creamed it.
The Socialist world of the Democratic Party disintegrated. An American who expressed unbridled love of country and respect for police, firemen, and military steamrolled across the heartland and the liberals realized their scheme was trashed. A CONSTITUTIONALIST would be nominated to the Supreme Court and if the hag who’d claimed to retire if Trump were elected would actually leave, the Supreme Court would have a massive majority of CONSTITUTIONALISTS for the next 40-50 years.
Now, the same party who’d ridiculed Trump on his comments about the election being rigged, started screaming that the election was rigged. They even advocated having the election repeated. They created mobs that burned and pillaged, stopped traffic, threatened murder, battery and rape of Trump supporters, and became the anarchists that the socialist dream thrives upon. They run like castrated pigs for safe zones and use diaper pins as their national symbol.
This is exactly what happens when political correctness takes over, and participation trophies are awarded to everyone. They can’t conceive how disgusting and subservient they have become. Donald Trump may NOT be the best person for the job, but he’s such a welcome respite from the candy-assed wimps who’ve been running the swamp that it’s refreshing to see. At the very least, Donald Trump derailed the Socialist train and bought us precious time. If he only does half of what he’s promised, we’ll still be legions ahead of where Obama has dragged us. Already countries who held us in contempt are lining up to be found in the favor of America.
So, for you liberal lurkers and you half-assed fence-sitters, kiss off. You had your big hurrah and now your party is over. For you staunch Republicans in office, don’t gloat so much yourselves. You’ve been put on notice by the American people that we’re fed up with ALL YOU BASTARDS, and if you don’t start putting America first, you do so at your own peril. You might want to buy a copy of George McGovern’s autobiography and see how shocking and humbling it can be for a professional politician to have to try to find legitimate work once he falls from grace. This election was pure, unadulterated AMERICAN. Hillary got beaten and AMERICA WON THE ELECTION. You can claim he’s not “your president” all you want, but unless you forfeit your American citizenship, YES HE IS! Go cry a river some place they need water.
OLDDOGS COMMENTS ON
It is not my intention to denigrate Mr. Roof; however there are certain subjects that everyone reading the above article must understand.
# 1 is, Patriotism, (as in “a proud supporter or defender of His/her country and it’s way of life” has been used by the International Investment Banking Cartel to control the emotions of billions of people, to their detriment, and the worlds grave yards PROVE IT!
There is no possible justification for continuous wars between Nations. They only profit the Bankers, politicians and those who build, distribute, and sell munitions and related products. WAR IS A RACKET, and it turns men into killers, destroys families, and worst of all, it promotes a mind set in young men that destroys their compassion for other people, and it begins on television, the public and privet mind control school system, all kinds of media, the military and is relevant in every countries mind set. It has turned humanity into monsters. I’ve been there folks, and killing other people becomes an addiction just like narcotics. The better you are at it, the more you want to continue doing it. It is a method of stroking your self-esteem. In short, war destroys human beings ability to prioritize their emotions and responsibilities to humanity. It justifies being sub-human. It is a tool the Bankers use to totally control the world, and the more we participate, the richer and more powerful they get; until we accept our total loss of humanity and freedom and accept their every command. THAT’S THE COST OF PATRIOTISM!
And it has been going on since the beginning of humanity.
And that’s not the worst part: because our confused minds begin to justify it as a means of getting even, like my dreams of solwy dragging Obuma and the Bankers over a gravel road until there is nothing left but the chain. Are you beginning to understand the horror of having been self hypnotized by your own rage or pursuit of glory? Our mind is our only chance of protecting the things we love, and we cannot afford to let other people decide what we should be because; when we, through ignorance, accept the things we have been taught to accept as normal, self hypnosis transfers the blame to us.
Even though my Lord and my God has said “Thou Shalt Not Kill” I have already changed that into; “I will kill anyone who tries to kill my loved ones or myself”, which is all the proof needed to deny my Lord as being infallible. What have we become if we accept human law over the Lord God almighty? Do you see the conundrum we face? This is the result of following the Bankers design of humanity over Gods. They have made us what we are by manipulating everything in our world, and claim to own us!
They have changed the definition of common words like “person” and “citizen”, and the kind of law we must obey was changed from common law to “international law” and that is only a minuscule amount of things that they have used to control us and steal our freedom to have a lawful Government. They make their own law, and hold us responsible, when we had no idea what they were doing, or how they did it. We were lied to from the cradle and accepted it as normal because it was all we knew, so once again I say “protecting our mind from accepting lies is paramount to recovering our humanity and freedom to govern ourselves”.
There remains no excuse for anyone to follow the status quo when the information is available for us to regain our humanity, our government and our education system. You can begin by reading
“You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback)
by Judge Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher”
May the Lord God Almighty, the Holy Lord of Glory forgive us and help us return to His Rule!
# 2! Now, you might be wondering why Mr. Roof is so upset over the machinations of our elected government. Well first off we did not elect them; the Banking Cartel appointed them for us because they know better than us how to gain complete control over the only commodity that has the power to control our lives. MONEY is the method they have always used and has been proven to be the ultimate weapon against humans. Along with our mind manipulation they use our greed for commodities to control us and all of the governments of the world.
And soon, they are going to solidify and modify the expense of doing that by eliminating our access to any currency but digits in their controlled banks. This effectively bankrupts all of humanity. Then, they will have the power to control everything on earth, and there will be no turning back with their own world military to enforce their control. Face it America, we have been screwed!!!
All of the pleasures of life will then be at the pleasure of the Banking Cartel. Can you comprehend the number of people who will be murdered to enforce this incomprehensible destruction of life on earth, as they solidify their control over everything needed to service the selected and obedient few who remain to serve them? Is your ignorance of their plans so low that this sounds like some crazy conspiracy theory? Well you only think what they have enabled you to think!
All remaining human beings will toe the line in perfect obedience when the Bankers control their food and warmth, where they come and go, and how often. Those of you who only see the good in humanity are in for a lesson you will not forget. Then you will be exterminated. That is the result of not having the intelligence to know “Something is wrong here” and doing the research to find out what it is!
All they had to do to accomplish this, is to do it in increments slow enough to not frighten people, and keep them focused on the remaining pleasures in life. Which by the way, is not all that inspiring if you have some of your mind left. I do not mean to appear to be more intelligent than anyone else but I was and remain aware that something is wrong here, so I looked for the reason. The next step was to try and awaken as many people as I could before the shit hits the fan. And, believe me it will when everyone has no money with any value.
# 3! Now we must confront the divide and conquer method that has helped the Bankers create chaos among us, and who among you is free of prejudices? Who among all of us has not looked down our nose at this or that ethnicity? As hard as I try not to, I would be a liar if I did not admit to being prejudice because it has been a part of humanity from the get go, and the Bankers have used it to completely divide America into a bunch of ignorant squabbling fools.
The media industry has been their most successful weapon in dividing us and many other human infallibilities have been controlled to their advantage. Can we not see the advantage it gives them to hate one another while they escape our wrath? Make no mistake about it, hate is a powerful tool when it is advantageous to them, and keeping us at each others throats is much better that attacking them. The media industry has been the most successful tool in the Bankers toolbox because they own it lock stock and barrel. Only six corporations control what we are feeding our minds by watching and reading their surreptitious lies.
Consider what we could accomplish if we were all pulling in the same direction instead of kicking and scratching each others eyes out; not to mention creating unforgivable wounds in our minds. Who among us is free of this horrible waste of power to reconstruct our country?
So Mr. Roof, don’t be so hard on the sons of bitches who call themselves your elected representatives, as they are only following orders, like any loyal military man is expected to do.

Are You a ‘TC’ Proponent?
Most have heard all they want to know about ‘PC’ or political correctness. But how many of you have come into contact with a much more hideous and sinister value system called ‘TC’? And even more important, are you an advocate of this behavior and its imposition on society? So just what is this conduct and who are the people who accept its tenants?
Fiat money creators that enslave the public with their hatred for honest money; are the designers of TC.
If you support the estate tax, progressive income tax, its graduated increase on greater income and redistribution of wealth; YOU are a TC.
Advocates of direct elections for the Presidency (as well as Senators), and the abolishment of the Electoral College; YOU are a TC.
Proponents of the UN involvement’s that conflict with American interests and impose compliance upon nations that differ with the world community; are TC.
Champions of criminalizing more non violent conduct, while applying lenient standards for the political and attorney class; are the creators of TC.
Supporters of the Corporate economy, with its designed elimination of small business; is a key element of TC.
Accountants that defend insane tax policies that force producers to adopt behavior and decisions that have no economic value, but will reduce tax obligations; are implementers of TC.
Whiners that demand special treatment from government at the expense of the rest, are truly TC.
Shapers of public images and editors of news that tell only a favorable account of their masters and refuse to speak ill of corrupt political, business and public leaders; are the messengers of TC.
Government bureaucrats that live for benefits and pensions, while the policies that they administer destroy the lives of honest citizens; are the foot soldiers of TC.
Local elected officials that routinely accept unconstitutional laws from State and Federal departments and courts, and do nothing to challenge their fraud; are subverters for TC goals.
Educators who impose an official line for acceptable thought and refuse to debate the merits of contrary views; are the keepers of the TC keys.
Tree huggers that force unemployment upon families with their belief in senseless and unscientific theories; are TC members.
Civil Rights advocates who’s notion of fairness justifies stealing from others to establish equality; are the robbers for TC.
Private Property destroyers who rationalize piracy from others for the greater good of themselves or their ‘so called’ society; are TC thieves.
Feminists that promote killing as a ‘RIGHT’ of woman and seek to cheapen all life as a means to express yourself; are TC harlots.
But the most disgusting of all, are the hypocrites who know exactly what TC is, understand that it is indefensible and evil, and continue to advocate it’s use upon the sovereign individuals of America; are the worst of all TC’s.
So by now you may want to know just what TC stands for? Well TC is ‘Totalitarian Collectivism‘. It is much more dynamic than the guilt and peer pressure tactic of Political Correctness. For force is the operative word in the T. Imposition of penalties and sanctions are the means upon which individuals are compelled to accept the tenants of TC. TC is based upon the power of the State to control people. Their methods are designed to coerce acceptance and mold behavior. The C is the object of the elite’s dream of complete dominion. Collectivism encompasses all the ism’s that seek to enslave man. Communism, Socialism, Fascism, and the current ‘Third Wave’, are all part of the same scam that has been used to deceive mankind into willingly giving up their individual rights for the false promises, of a dishonest slave master. The correctness in PC is the secular relativism that justifies accepting an erroneous assemblage of political doctrines. While the collectivism in TC is the absolute aim and ultimate goal for the domination of humanity.
PC is bad enough, but TC will secure the shackle and chains of despair and suffering, on the vast hordes of humankind. You are urged to start using this term in your writing and conversations and start explaining the threat that really is before us. TC is real and the operative dictum of this age. Our mutual duty is to resist it in any and every form it takes. Our aspiration is to empower the greatest number of individuals to seek and realize the excellent and ability of their talents to achieve wealth, health, meaning and purpose for their life. This goal cannot be realized within a TC culture. The enemy of the human race are the proponents, protectors and defenders of TC. Will you join the crusade against this infidel or are you content to accept the fate that is planned for you? This is one war that we are all involved, one that cannot be escaped or one that cannot be ignored. The destiny of mankind rests upon your decision to resist.
SARTRE – March 10, 2001
The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority, practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them slaves; a contest, that — however bloody — can, in the nature of things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave.

Hypothecation is a fancy word for fraud. It concerns a purely hypothetical debt owed by a pure hypothetical corporation. It allows a Third Party to claim that a corporation named after you and operating under your NAME is standing good for their debts. It allows them to take title to your body, land, home, marriage, children, and all else you may have on earth, and use it as collateral for their debts—- all without telling you or having any valid agreement with you at all.
Do you smell a great, big, fat, stinking rat yet?
Those who have been following along now know that Maritime Law (also known as Commercial Law and (Roman) Civil Law and Law Merchant is an ancient system of laws and codes that arose thousands of years ago and is based upon the worship of Satan (the Father of All Lies) and other pagan practices and beliefs.
You also know that no living man can form a contract under this system of laws. Only corporations—that is, legal fiction entities— can form contracts, because contracts are themselves fraudulent by definition.
Think about it— can you guarantee your abilities or conditions ten minutes from now, much less thirty years hence? No, of course, not. As the Prophet Jeremiah bemoaned, it is not given to us to be able to guarantee a single step.
Can someone so limited in scope by nature ever enter into a contract guaranteeing anything, much less the fulfillment of a contractual obligation set far into the future, like the paying off of a mortgage twenty or thirty years from now, or a car loan in five years?
The answer is no, no, no. The very best a living man can do is what is called a “good faith agreement” — which is sometimes misrepresented as a “contract” but is in fact no guarantee at all, aside from one’s “good faith” intention to carry through on whatever is agreed to.
So you have fake entities— corporations which exist only in the mind and as pieces of paper known as a Charter— making promises that no man can guarantee for performance of contracts which everyone concerned knows are bogus by nature.
In order to safeguard themselves against such obvious dishonesty and folly, the perpetrators of this system also claim to have a “corporate veil” to protect their own hides and fortunes from the consequences of their actions. And they also seek to “privately insure” their corporations against losses on top of it.
The “corporate veil” is a claim based on the fact that a corporation by definition is a “dead entity” and nobody can hold a dead man accountable, except to the extent of his “remainder estate”. So what is a corporation’s estate? Only the assets it holds in its name. Under normal circumstances, its shareholders cannot be sued for anything beyond the corporation’s assets.
So imagine that you “borrow” your neighbors name — “Curtis Alvin Foster” — and you use his name to create a corporate PERSON named “CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER” — and you operate it as a franchise of another corporation like the “UNITED STATES, INC.”.
The UNITED STATES, INC. operating as the parent corporation issues bonds —that is, promises to pay in the future and names good old “CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER” as the “surety” underwriting the bonds. People then buy these “UNITED STATES TREASURY BONDS” in the rational belief that the UNITED STATES, INC. and all the “franchises” belonging to the UNITED STATES, INC., are “standing good” for the debts of the UNITED STATES ……
Well, what happens when the “UNITED STATES” declares bankruptcy?
All that the UNITED STATES has at risk are whatever bits and pieces it hasn’t transferred to the ownership of other corporations like: THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, INC., and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC., and E PLUBIBUS UNUM THE UNITED STATES, INC., and the DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, INC. and so on and on.
And those bits and pieces of property scattered around the world are not sufficient to cover the debts of the UNITED STATES, INC., but the actual shareholders in the UNITED STATES, INC., are protected by the corporate veil. They have siphoned off all the profit and left nothing of value on the table, and worst comes to worst, they are prepared to seek bankruptcy protection just like the Big Boys—- the banks and holding companies behind this whole fraud.
So the debt is insurmountable and the UNITED STATES, INC. and its actual shareholders are all snug and protected behind the corporate veil and also holding the option of bankruptcy protection for all the guilty parties, such as the members of the “UNITED STATES CONGRESS” and who is left wriggling on the hook for this?
Why, YOU and ME and good old CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER are on the hook for it, of course.
All those sureties—- all the “franchise corporations” and all their assets get plugged to pay back the investors who bought those “UNITED STATES TREASURY BONDS”.
In just this way, you and your assets have been used as collateral —as insurance underwriting— the promises to pay made by the “UNITED STATES CONGRESS” that floated the “UNITED STATES TREASURY BONDS” in the “name of” the UNITED STATES and all those franchises named after YOU and ME and CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER.
“WHHAAATTT?” — I can hear you all saying…… “How is that possible? I never agreed to use my labor and my body and my home and my business as collateral backing those spendthrifts in Congress! I didn’t sign any such agreement! I don’t know what you are talking about!”
It all goes back to the Father of All Lies and the system of “law” created in honor of him.
What’s the First Lie?
It happened before you were even aware of what was going on. Your Mother innocently and unwittingly signed undisclosed paperwork allowing the vermin to “presume” that you were a “citizen of the United States” and a fatherless bastard that nobody claimed—– and so their “religious non-profit service corporation” operating the “Public Charitable Trust” claimed you as a ward and dependent and set up a corporate franchise named after you. They issued a “Birth Certificate” under your name to keep it all “legal” but not lawful, and they listed YOU as an asset and franchise of their parent corporation, the UNITED STATES, INC.
Look at what you think of as your own Birth Certificate. It is written on bond paper. It is signed by the Registrar of the Probate Court in the County where you were born. Your estate on Earth was probated when you were only a few weeks old. You will notice that your actual birthday appears on the certificate—- say, June 6, 1956, but there is another date there, too—- a “File Date”—- that is the day that these vermin secretly enrolled you as a franchise of their corporation and named YOU as a surety for their corporate debts. At that time, when you were only a few days old, the Devil claimed you, killed you, and left nothing but your NAMED ESTATE as a record that you ever lived at all. You and your assets were also press-ganged into the international jurisdiction of the sea and made subject to Maritime Law— Satan’s “Law”.
Since then, you have been ever-increasingly indebted by the senseless spending of the Congress and the fake Governors running a “state of state” —– such as the State of California or the STATE OF CALIFORNIA— all of them making false claims against your name and estate and against your actual state, the California state—-and all of them claiming that you and your state are franchises owned and operated by their corporation and that YOU and all your land, etc., stands as a surety for their debts and are fair game for any creditor that cares to make a claim.
And of course, nobody hears a word of dissent from you claiming otherwise. Why? Because your Mother was hoodwinked and coerced into signing an undisclosed “information” sheet about you and just as innocently gave wrong information. (In legalese, the word “Informant” means that your Mother, listed as the “Informant”, was giving notice of a crime—- the abandonment of a baby.)
Your Mother never knew and was never taught the legal (as opposed to common use) meaning of the words “US citizen” and she never realized that she “donated” you into slavery. So of course she never took any corrective action and when you came of age, you were totally uninformed so you couldn’t take any action, either…..
What’s the only deal you can’t refuse? The one that you never heard of in the first place.
What appears to be a Birth Certificate acknowledging your arrival is in fact a Death Certificate announcing your “civil death”. Father of All Lies, right? A Death Certificate disguised as a Birth Certificate. Nice.
The men and women who approved and set up this fraud machine were the worst most despicable kind of criminal imaginable, white collar slave traders and inland pirates wearing nice suits, preying upon ignorant women and little babies in their cradles.
They are all long since dead and beyond our ability to punish. Today, their grandsons and granddaughters continue to operate the fraud machine, but that is all they have ever known. When you capture them and put the pieces together and ask them to account for their actions, nine out of ten of them appear truly amazed.
They only saw a part of it—typically a small part of the total machine—and they claim they didn’t know what was going on. Not at all. It was just “the way we do things…. this is the way it has always been done”—-and within their living memory, that is true.
By far the majority of the people who serve to create and implement and keep this evil system running are totally innocent and have no idea what they are contributing to and no idea that they have also been victimized and claimed like unbranded cattle.
If they knew, then all the government workers and the people of these fifty great nation-states would rise up with one voice and say:
“Fraud! Fraud against us! Fraud against our children! Fraud! Identity theft! False records! False claims in commerce! I am an American state national! Help! Help! Help!”
Okay, so that was Lie Number One, false records and false testimony fabricated against you and then held against you without your knowledge or consent, stacking the deck against you and allowing false presumptions about you for the rest of your life.
So then, the rest of the lies came—Lies Two, Three, Four…..and on and on. You were told that you had to sign up for Social Security or you couldn’t have a job, so under that coercion, you signed up. You were told that you had to have a driver license, so you signed up. You were told you had to have a marriage license, so you did that, too.
And it so happens that absolutely none of this “common knowledge” was ever true for 90% of you. It’s actually just disinformation put out by self-interested parties and ignorance parroted by people who thought they knew the truth and didn’t.
Each one of these “voluntary” contracts is not really voluntary. They are not actually required for American state nationals and the consequences of signing these documents are never disclosed.
You are penalized and hounded and coerced under various kinds of duress to have a “Social Security Number” and a Driver License and a Marriage License and all the rest of it. And there is a reason for this— each one of these things seems to further lend credence to the storyline these vermin are peddling about you— that you wanted to be classed as a ward of the state, that you voluntarily gave up your birthright as an American state national, that you are subject to the Law of the Sea, not the Law of the Land and so on and on.
And, again, if people would stop talking about what they think they know and stop making assumptions and start asking questions, all of this would become very apparent. You would all realize that you have been defrauded and you would start seeking remedy for it.
Begin with the fact that a “license” is official permission (from some authority presumed to be greater than you) to do something that would otherwise be illegal. You should all be asking—- when did it become illegal to get married? Who says? Why?
Remember what I said about the sanctimonious monsters claiming that you were an abandoned, unwanted, fatherless child and that their religious non-profit Public Charitable Trust (PCT) adopted you?
The Public Charitable Trust was set up as a welfare fund for displaced plantation slaves in the wake of the so-called “Civil War”. So who is eligible to receive help from the PCT? Abandoned babies and unemployed Negroes and other “federal wards and dependents” who receive welfare “benefits” from the fund, all of which they pay for themselves, of course.
Likewise, the Marriage License was imposed on Negroes — and only upon Negroes who were deemed “citizens of the United States”. The fear was that displaced plantation slaves would breed like rabbits and become a public nuisance so laws were passed requiring Negro men to prove they had jobs and income sufficient to support a wife and family before they got married and thus the requirement of the “Marriage License” was imposed on all those receiving benefits from the Public Charitable Trust (PCT).
Are you a “citizen of the United States”? Are you desiring “benefits” from a Public Charitable Trust set up for the welfare relief of African Americans? Are you required to have a license to get married?
Who dreams up this outrageous crappola? Not me. I am just describing it for you and noting the history involved.
Clearly, Satan is all about lies and half-truths and purposeful omissions, and his system of “law” is, too. And through no fault of your own, you have been commandeered into this system of lies, fraud, racketeering, coercion, and crime. You’ve been made subject to it and arbitrarily defined as both a criminal and a slave. You have been made to dig your own grave— and all this in your own country, using your own resources against you—and this has been done to you by your own employees, your supposed Allies, and Trustees.
The men and women who did this 150 years ago deserved to be strung up and gibbeted for what they were— British pirates. Those who have knowingly and deliberately continued it — like Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Sir Winston Churchill— deserved no better from the American people. And those who continue these practices once they have been fully and freely informed are also criminals in the modern day. A crime is a crime is a crime is a crime.
In this entire matter, first to last, from the outrages of the so-called “Civil War” onward, the British Monarch has acted in gross Breach of Trust and so have the Popes from that day to this. The British Crown Corporation and its subsidiaries including the Northern Trust Corporation, the Government of the United States (Inc.), their subsidiaries and franchises including the FBI, BLM, American Bar Association, and Internal Revenue Service have all functioned as international crime syndicates on our shores.
Just over a year ago, an innocent (and by my standards, young) Rancher named LaVoy Finicum was deliberately ambushed and murdered by members of the FBI, which is nothing but an armed mercenary security company operated by a for-profit corporation calling itself the “GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES (INC.)”. They acted under color of law and murdered an innocent American on his way to a public meeting and the vicious miscreants— murderers with malice aforethought—- have to all appearances gotten away with it.
The British Bar Association members operating as District Attorneys have failed to serve justice and have instead defended crime against the people of this country in violation of the 1947 Bar Association Treaty.
And it isn’t the first time.
The American Bar Association which claims to be a professional association organized to promote continuing education and high professional and ethical standards among its members stands revealed on this matter and occasion as nothing more than a rubber stamp for the brutal criminal regime in London which is ultimately responsible for their existence.
It’s a good thing that I am not into politics and am not Donald Trump. If I were, every single one of these “federal corporations” would be liquidated. Not just sold. Liquidated. For cause.
Every single one of the men responsible for the miscarriage of justice in this country would be ferreted out and fired. The corrupt judges and district attorneys would be no more. Fired, fired, fired, and not eligible for pensions or rehire. Ever.
The members of the Bar Association would be given a choice—- either renounce membership in the Bar or have all your worldly goods confiscated and be deported to England or any other country stupid enough to put up with the Bar’s double-speak criminality.
The federal State of State franchises would be liquidated also and all their ill-gotten gains including the over-stuffed employee pension and CAFR accounts returned to the actual land jurisdiction state governments we are owed.
I would do a department by department and agency by agency overhaul and send forth an army of accountants to scour through the financial records of every single one of these organizations and I would bring suit against every corporation suspected of the crimes of racketeering, coercion, extortion, falsification of vital records, unlawful conversion, and conspiracy to defraud or other outrages against the actual states and people. I would not only have their “corporate veil pierced” but thrown away and trampled on.
I would dispatch a Special Counselor to every United States District with strict orders to clean up this administrative nightmare and fire as many people as necessary to get it done.
And I would also dispatch a team of Special Prosecutors to the United Nations to bring formal complaints against Britain and France and the Netherlands and Switzerland and the rest of the False Friends who have preyed so relentlessly on the American states and people.
I would send another group of Special Prosecutors to France to present the proof of criminal wrong-doing in the International Court of Criminal Justice and demand a full scale investigation. And I would make sure that the full allegations and all the evidence was placed squarely on the public record for all to see. No more backdoor deals and gentleman’s agreements—- just a housecleaning like we haven’t had since Great-Grandma was a pup.
And now, finally, about “hypothecation“—- its a process of “hypothetical debt”. A corporation alleges that CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER is its surety in case it can’t or won’t pay its debts. Another corporation brings forward a debt for CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER to pay. They bring suit against CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER, a corporate franchise of the UNITED STATES.
So far all this is nothing but lies and “theories”, so the COURT goes fishing. They send a SUMMONS and NOTICES to the name CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER, and of course, poor old Curtis Allen Foster—- who doesn’t know that any of this is going on—- answers it.
And suddenly it “appears” that a corporation operating as a franchise of the UNITED STATES, INC. under the name “CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER” exists. Someone stepped forward and accepted the NAME. So, under the Doctrine of Merger and the presumptions already existing as a result of the deliberately concocted Vital Statistics records, the COURT logs another victim.
You see, CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER, is already defined as a criminal and slave and a guilty party. No matter what poor old Curtis Allen Foster says in his defense, no matter what law or what evidence he produces, the COURT cannot hear him. It can only give—as its own current rules state—an “appearance” of justice, while the criminals in robes proceed to pillage the ACCOUNT they hold in the name of CURTIS ALVIN FOSTER, and charge his supposedly “abandoned” birth estate.
These courts have got to be shut down permanently. Those administering them must be fired and removed. The judges who have known about this system and who have participated in it must be fired and removed. The District Attorneys who have stood by and let this go on have to be fired and removed.
No more “hypothecation” of debt related to any implied contract should be allowed, ever. And no political status should be presumed upon anyone on the basis of Vital Statistics records, Informants, or imposed by any so-called Public Policy.
Every single attorney and bureaucrat found guilty of supporting and colluding in this gigantic fraud should be branded as a public malefactor and pariah and deported permanently from our shores. The Bar Associations which have promoted this criminal activity should be outlawed and anyone having a Bar Card or “license” to practice law should be given a choice— either tear up your Bar Card and operate in the honest court system owed to the people of these fifty nation states, or get out.
Those that remain loyal to the Bar after learning the facts should be stripped of their right to be here and put to sea in a leaky boat so far as I am concerned.
I believe that was the intention of our Forefathers when they passed the Titles of Nobility Amendment and I believe that they were correct in their assessment of the situation. I believe that hundreds of millions of people have died and have lived miserable, truncated lives because of the criminality and dishonesty of legal professionals and the continued use and abuse of the Roman Civil Law in modern times.
I call upon every member of the American Armed Forces, every sheriff, every Marshal, every peace officer, traffic cop, special agent, provost marshal, law enforcement official, corporate officer, bureaucrat, politician, and rank and file American to demand an end to the use of so-called “Executive” (Martial Common Law) and Roman Civil Law on American shores.
Demand the correction of all the falsified and undisclosed vital statistics records that have been deliberately and self-interestedly created for the purpose of press-ganging and defrauding and mischaracterizing the innocent American people. Demand prosecution of those who have practiced both personage and barratry against us. Demand restitution from England, France, and the other False Friends that have contributed to this identity theft, fraud, and enslavement.
Expose the rot and clean it out like a pus-filled wound. Let us put an end to Satan’s “law” once and for all and embrace a new era and a new international law.
Toward this end, people, discuss what I am telling you here with your families and your friends. Take this article and any others that you find helpful and give them to the elected bureaucrats, to the police, to the lawyers themselves—-many of whom have been blissfully ignorant of the Bar Associations’ true nature and misdeeds—- to the local county sheriff and the school officials and the pastors and the priests who serve your communities. Let everyone know what has gone on here, what has been alleged and practiced against them.
Then start the process of declaring your actual political status as a non-citizen American state national and get it on the record. Start “assembling” your county jural assemblies. Post your public notices. Hold your elections for your county sheriff for the land-based county. Tell the current private office holder that he is welcome to be the land sheriff, too, if he agrees to uphold the actual Public and Organic Law owed to your county and if not, he is occupying a private office in a corporation like any other corporation and he is required to recognize the man who does hold the public office as a result of the jural assembly election. Elect your Justices of the Peace (often mistakenly called “judges”). Elect your Court Clerk, Bailiff, Grand Jury Administrator and all other public offices of the county you are owed. Put together your jury pools.
When you have your Jural Assembly up and running, create your Jural Society to operate the Federal Postal District Courts that are owed to your counties. These courts preside over matters arising in the undelegated portion of the international jurisdiction reserved by the states and the people under Article X of the actual Constitution. Anything and everything that was not specifically and explicitly delegated to the “federal corporation” to do, remains the province of the states and the people and the Federal Postal District Courts are the proper venue.
Get going, America. Get up on your feet. Raise the alarm. Take the necessary steps to reclaim your birthright estates, operate the government you are owed, and reform the operations of the federal government on our shores. A great deal of work has to be done on all sides to bring this criminality to an end and forge forward to a new future— and nobody else in the world can do it for you.

Notice to Congress—The Days of Legalizing Theft
From the writings of Anna von Reitz. Big Lake Alaska September 2014
The most recent round of fraud began on March 28, 1861. That was the day the Congress of the united States of America adjourned for lack of quorum and never reconvened. Ever since, “Congress” has functioned in one of three roles—(1) as a corporate Board of Directors for private, mostly foreign-owned and deceptively named governmental services corporations operated by banking cartels (the Federal Reserve running the “United States of America, Inc.” and the IMF running the “UNITED STATES”) or (2) the government of a legislative democracy calling itself the United States of America (Minor)—American “states” more often thought of as federal territories and possessions—
Guam, Puerto Rico, etc., or (3) operating as a plenary oligarchy ruling the Washington DC Municipal Government.
All this time that you thought the members of Congress were representing you and your interests, they’ve been representing other interests entirely. That explains a lot, doesn’t it?
On March 6, 1933 the “President” of the “United States of America, Inc.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt attended a Conference of Governors meeting. These “Governors” were all “State” franchise managers of the United States of America, Inc., exactly like local franchise owners of Burger King or Sears. They got together and pledged the assets of their customers—their employers—the American states and people——as “sureties” for their private corporate debts. And then they bankrupted the “United States of America” and all the “State” franchises.
The “federal” States that were created by the 14th Amendment of their private for-profit corporation’s look-alike, sound-alike “constitution” published as the “Constitution of the United States of America” are not the same as the actual States of the Union, nor are their “State” citizens the same as American State Citizens, nor are their “US citizens” the same as Citizens of the united States, but they pretended that they were and the banks gleefully agreed.
To secure the debt owed by the “United States of America, Inc.” the banks established maritime salvage liens against every parcel of land, every business, every man, woman, and child in America, and continued to operate their doppelganger corporation under Chapter 11 Reorganization. They laid claim to your “good faith and credit” —stole your credit cards— and your identity as an American State Citizen, and they never bothered to tell the victim.
They also had you declared legally dead and probated your estate and issued bonds based on the value of your labor and private property. Just look at “your” Birth Certificate—signed by the County Registrar, an officer of the probatecourt, issued in the NAME of a “dead person”—you, numbered as a bond and issued on bond paper.
At the same time, they converted all your private bank accounts to the ownership of the ESTATE trust they created “in your
name” and moved the ESTATE offshore to Puerto Rico where you and your assets supposedly came under the foreign maritime jurisdiction of the United States of America (Minor).
Look at the NAME on “your” bank account checks. Look at the signature line under a high powered magnifier. The IMF claims that it owns all your bank accounts. It claims that your ESTATE was “abandoned”, and now all the spoils belong to the bank. They are pressing “Congress” to pass “laws” to allow them to seize all American bank accounts—your savings, your retirement accounts, your checking accounts, everything. We’ve seen Dodd-Frank. Now we are seeing “bail-in” proposals. The Big Banks want “Congress” to front for their greed and criminality—again.
This is all fiduciary trust fraud and fiduciary trust fraud has no statute of limitations. 1862 or 1933 or 2014—it makes no difference. We suggest that members of Congress assume their public offices acting under full 100% individual commercial liability —or be ousted and tried as criminals. Next, we suggest that they honor their contract with America and issue debt-free public money— real American Dollars. Next, liquidate all the “too big to fail” banks, tearup the corporate charters these entities have violated, seize back our purloined assets, and shut them all down.
Meanwhile, the market for financial services will open up for banks operated under actual state charters.
This thing you have thought of as your government is nothing but a multi-national conglomerate run criminally amok. The real government of this country is vested in each of you. You all hold more civil authority on the land than the entire federal government.
Deal with the “FEDERAL RESERVE” and “IMF” and “CONGRESS” the same way you would deal with “TARGET” or “WALMART” or “ARBY’S” if they grossly endangered, cheated, enslaved, and
defrauded you. Keep calm and get even. You all know what to do.
You have the guaranteed Universal Right of Self-Declaration provided by United Nations Conventions, plus the protections of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. You have the Geneva Conventions and the Lieber Code.
You have the preserved right to Common Law, guaranteed by Uniform Commercial Code 1-308 and recourse guaranteed by 1-103.6, which includes the right not to be bound by any contract that is unilateral, inequitable, involuntary, undisclosed, tainted by fraud, not in-kind, entered in your behalf by others merely claiming to represent you, or deemed to exist as the result of receiving a compelled benefit or fruit of monopoly inducement. You have the absolute right to Expatriate from their maritime jurisdiction.
When 400 million Americans stand up and clean house, the world will listen and hear the roar.

By Joe McCutchen
January 9, 2017
Does anyone really know the mindset of President-Elect Donald Trump? January 21, 2017 the neutral pendulum will begin to swing right or left. Citizens should be keenly aware of nuances, meaningless statements; political positions that regularly come forth from his mouth, as well as the super large issues he will be instantly confronted with. The importance is simply that the new president will hold more collective power in all the political arenas on that date than any man in the history of the world. Which way and how far will the pendulum swing?
The American government, on a perpetual basis, needs soldiers and lots of them to continue their unconstitutional, preemptive murdering and destructive psychotic pursuits.
President Elect Donald J. Trump, who I voted for with certain caveats, has reiterated multiple times that:
- S. must greatly strengthen nuclear capabilities
- Retrofit the existing S. military
- Furthermore: Increase the numbers & scope of the S. military top down. These statements (positions) and their implementation have the capacity to destroy mankind.
Question: why the necessity for the above? Who is today’s U.S. enemy du jour? Not one foreign national government has shown an inclination for war since 1945.
The current U.S. military is the largest and best equipped in the history of the world, yet President Elect Trump wants to rebuild & build on those numbers. At least 5 countries have a nuclear capability that could destroy the globe 10X over in minutes, namely the U.S., U.K., China, Israel, & Russia. There are others. Of the 5, who presents the greatest threat to precipitate a nuclear Armageddon—in my mind, the U.S. and/or Israel.
Should President Elect Trump proceed on the psychotic misadventures for global destruction i.e. arms race, as opposed to pursuing a vigorous global peace initiative, laissez faire capitalism, and as one of the Founders stated…”no foreign entanglements”, we shall pay dearly in blood & treasure. There is an excellent chance that civilization could be wiped off the face of the earth, e.g. the U.S. forcing China & Russia into a nuclear global conflict, now occurring—U.S. military along Russian borders & naval forces in the South China Sea. These two nations will not be bullied.
Bush I & II engaged this nation into 15 years of continual murdering and destruction, aided by Barack Obama with no end in sight. The RNC (Republican National Committee) and its sitting Senators & Representatives are warmongers of the highest order and no doubt inherited their DNA from the butcher of butchers, President Abraham Lincoln, e.g. Sen. John McCain, Sen. Lindsay Graham, and in AR. neophyte war-activist Sen. Tom Cotton, & indolent Sen. John Boozman who acts only on command from the RNC to pull the levers for war, otherwise his 15 year legislative presence has been a blank slate & a disgrace.
If President Elect Trump is successful in the macro enlargement and retrofitting of the U.S. military, what are his plans for utilizing this behemoth? The U.S. currently has a military presence in 130 countries! Again, I ask why? None of these countries have shown one iota of interest in any manner to engage the U.S. militarily, while at the same time the U.S. has meddled, destroyed, & murdered millions of innocent citizens around the globe, e.g. Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Ukraine, Turkey, Yemen, Syria, Somalia, Venezuela, & Russia (posting NATO troops on the borders of countries contiguous with Russia—e.g. Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Turkey, a U.S. naval armada in the South China Sea, and a recent deployment of tanks in Eastern Germany. ) Who is the aggressor?
I ask again, what does Mr. Trump plan to do with his proposal to metastasize the U.S. military? Are the troops going to languish in their barracks sitting on their bunks polishing their brass and rearranging their foot lockers? Certainly not, it is a formula for global destruction/hegemony, the only logical conclusion with which one can arrive, with another massive buildup of troops & material. Armies are assembled to destroy countries, kill, and torture, remove individual freedoms & institute multiple methods of captivity ending in slavery. The U.S. military is not assembled for peaceful engagements. (Accompanied by a national debt of $20 TRILLION & GROWING)
To the point. Paul Wolfowitz, dual Israeli/U.S. citizen, heavily involved in Bush II’s criminal adventures & author of the Wolfowitz Doctrine—“WE SHALL HAVE NO RIVALS”, and using the doctrine simply means, as he states, “ETERNAL WAR FOR ETERNAL PEACE” resulting in an insane equation for the pursuit of U.S. global dominance with the obvious need for massive numbers of young Americans, i.e. cannon fodder, to satisfy the dreams & goals of elitists, bankers, military/industrial/surveillance complex, and of course in the mid-east to do the fighting & funding for Israeli Jews.
All Americans during the last 4 decades have been recipients of daily fuselages of indoctrination, propagandizing, conditioning, and directives, to institute emotional behaviors that is producing an overweening emotional admiration for war and the military, and at the same time citizens hardly realizing our republic has been embroiled in a continuing 15 year war that engages in super criminal acts.
The above methods are being used at every public event (free & paid) at public institutions (public schools, universities & entertainment venues) & always with an accompanying display of force: enormous flags, cannons, fireworks, military presence, flyovers, music—highly successful maudlin spectacles which produce the desired enlistments, none of which should be a part of private citizen’s entertainment & academic interests, nor should citizens be subjected to a bellicose environment at any time.
Therefore: who will you say is violating the cannons of civility? Put another way, who do you believe deserves the title of “global enemy”?
The whole of America, mainly due to ignorance, is betraying the principles laid down by our Founding Fathers, resulting in the U.S. becoming a belligerent historical wasteland.
Painfully said, the courageous U.S. fighting force is bringing our republic down by creating chaos & fear at home & abroad, not “KEEPING US SAFE” as the general officers, politicians & media bloviate daily. The U.S. has become the global enemy and unless these young people realize they are subsidizing their own demise in unconstitutional, preemptive wars and the criminal activities of American governments we will never arise from the filth and vermin to which this & past American governments have brought us.
The courageous American military are not heroes, they are tools used by elitists who foolhardily pursue their hegemonic ambitions. Some solutions for the neutralization of our despotic federal government are akin to simple syrup—simple.
Redeploy all American troops back to the confines of the USA, use the redeployed troops to lockdown all our national borders—land, sea, & air; use a substantial number of the remaining redeployed to build a wall contiguous with Mexico. Discharge all military personnel who do not provide active rolls in positively serving our nation; remove all illegal foreign nationals from roles in our military. Deport all illegals and those residing here on expired visas. The redeployment will also provide for a sleek, effective fighting force and relieve U.S. taxpayers from paying billions of dollars on foolish military excursions. If the numbers remaining are sufficiently great they should be directed to rebuilding our infrastructure. And finally, there should be instituted a 5 year moratorium on all immigration, giving our nation a chance to acculturate/assimilate the hundreds of ethnic groups who reside here legally.
Citizens, you do understand that politicians & bureaucrats are not going to resolve on their own the multiple crises we taxpayers are enduring—they created them all for their own enrichment. The coup de gras to complete the above tenants for saving our Constitutional Republic; all incumbents must be given the boot promptly, removing any chance of reenacting conscription, among other repugnant things.
Speaking of heroes, 3 individuals stand out, Edward Snowden fled to Russia, Bradley Manning federal prison, & Julian Assange house arrest Ecuadorian Embassy. They have given their all to alert/educate Americans to the magnitude of the criminal cabal located in DC—the federal government. President Elect Donald Trump, in my view, should pardon these 3 men and award with appropriate medals of honor—they may just have saved our nation.
There are numerous writers on the internet who display skill and intelligence that make the newspaper journalist look like high-school dropouts, but none I have read has put into print a more comprehensible, intelligent and common sense solution than what you have just read. Thank you Joe! The only thing lacking is a comprehensive plan to ignite the brains of hundreds of millions of people in America TO SUPPORT IT. Americans absolutely must stop wasting their time on frivolous entertainment, and gain the courage to abandon the social stigma against participation in political conversations. If your friends and family abandon you for having the courage to speak up, consider it an advantage and keep on trying to get people involved. You have lost nothing when idiots denounce you. WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA!

Stock is derived from the Old French word stocc, meaning “stump, post, stake, tree trunk, log”. The word trunk originated from the Old French word tronc, meaning “trunk of a tree, trunk of the human body, wooden block”. In English, one of the definitions of the word trunk is “the body of a person or an animal excluding the head and limbs; torso”. It can also mean “the main channel, artery, or line in a river, railroad, highway, canal, or other tributary system”.
Most adults of today think that they are civilized and educated enough to make informed and responsible decisions. The real truth is that they are far from being responsible. Today, most adults are very irresponsible and so ignorant (lacking in knowledge) that they can barely tell the difference between what is “real” and what is “fantasy”. The proof that most adults are irresponsible can be seen when you look at the current state of the global economy. The occult definitions in the previous paragraph reveal to you the relation among the stock market, the human body, and water. In other words, your “body” is being sold/souled on the stock market for currency/current-sea-current/-chi. The currency that represents your time and energy.
Most people these days would rather watch sports or shows on TV than learn about their natural rights and how the financial, legal, and political system work. Because of their lack of knowledge in these subjects, it was not too hard for the Controllers of the New World Order (NWO) to brainwash these people to obey their authorities and Nazi-type government.
Did You Know You are a Corporate Slave?
In the USA, most of us are so brainwashed that we actually think we live in a “free” country. The unwanted truth is that roughly 98 percent of the American people are “living” under the umbrella of the corporation called the United States, Inc. This is why Americans are not called “American Citizens” anymore. Instead, they are called “United States Citizens”.
A Citizen of the United States is a citizen of a corporation or a “ship”. Hence the term, citizenship or “citizen-ship”. Because of this, a United States Citizen has no natural rights. If you do not live in the United States, your government most likely sold you out to the Controllers and their corporations too. This is because most countries of the world are controlled by the Western legal system, which is not a system based on justice but a system based on commerce.
When you agree to be a United States Citizen, you consent to be an artificial person, which is defined in Black’s Law Dictionary as a corporation. As an artificial person (corporation), you do NOT have natural rights. However, you can be given privileges by the government. Furthermore, you are bound to the acts and statutes (rules and codes) of the corporation called the United States.
Why Stealth Slavery is the Best Form of Slavery
Today, the Controllers of the NWO and their minions have nearly perfected their system of slavery. Instead of forcing people to work for them without pay, the Controllers domesticated people to think that they are free, and then trick those people to work for the Controllers using contracts to bind them to the terms and conditions of those contracts. They also used unlawful tax “laws” to scare people to pay them money.
The best form of slavery is stealth slavery, which is a form of slavery that tricks people to think they are free. This allows the people in power to control the public with little resistance. Stealth slavery is the best form of slavery, because when the masters can trick the slaves to think that they are free, they get more productivity and creativity out of the slaves. The increase of productivity and creativity of the slaves can generate more wealth, allowing the masters to collect more tax to finance their slavery system.
Evidence That Most People are Like Domesticated Animals
In the USA, most Americans have no clue that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is a foreign agency. To be more accurate, the IRS is a foreign private corporation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and is the private “army” for the Federal Reserve (Fed). For evidence of this, read these two empowering articles titled “Federal Tax Case Shows Evidence the U.S. Legal System is a Fraud” and “Did You Know the IRS and the Fed are Private Corporations? Plus, Exposing the Secrets of the Western Court System“.
Most, if not all, of the taxes collected by IRS are given to the Federal Reserve and then are turned over to the IMF, an international banking organization controlled by the United Nations (UN). The UN is a front for the Crown of England, which is controlled by the Crown Temple (City of London) and the Vatican. In simple words, every time you pay the IRS, you finance your own slavery.
Today, the Controllers of the NWO are heavily investing in artificial intelligence (AI), so that they can rely less on domesticated humans to do their dirty work. This is why they are heavily promoting transhumanism, “the belief or theory that the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limitations, especially by means of science and technology”. In other words, they want AI robots to rule humanity, similar to how AI robots controlled the human race in the Terminator movie series. After they accomplish this goal, they plan to dramatically reduce the human population.
Here is an excerpt from an article I wrote titled A Breakdown of “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars” and the Dark Agendas of the Elites – Part 1 of 2 that reveals how the Controllers (Elites) think about humans:
“In conclusion, the objective of economic research, as conducted by the magnates of capital (banking) and the industries of commodities (goods) and services, is the establishment of an economy which is totally predictable and manipulatable.
In order to achieve a totally predictable economy, the low-class elements of society must be brought under total control, i.e., must be housebroken, trained, and assigned a yoke and long-term social duties from a very early age, before they have an opportunity to question the propriety of the matter. In order to achieve such conformity, the lower-class family unit must be disintegrated by a process of increasing preoccupation of the parents and the establishment of government-operated day-care centers for the occupationally orphaned children.
The quality of education given to the lower class must be of the poorest sort, so that the moat of ignorance isolating the inferior class from the superior class is and remains incomprehensible to the inferior class. With such an initial handicap, even bright lower class individuals have little if any hope of extricating themselves from their assigned lot in life. This form of slavery is essential to maintain some measure of social order, peace, and tranquility for the ruling upper class.” [Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, pg. 7]
Since the day we were born, the Elites and their minions have used their education, religious, and media systems to brainwash us, so that they can condition us to behave and think like slaves, and dumb us down to the level of brain-dead zombies.
Did you know that the popular Hollywood zombie movies are created by the minions of the Elites to mock your intelligence? Unfortunately, most people are too ignorant and uneducated these days to realize this. Have you seen the TV show The Walking Dead? To the Elites, YOU are the walking dead, get it?
Many of the popular cultural movements (i.e., hip hop, rock & roll, Hollywood lifestyle) and social behaviors are engineered by the Elites. One of their favorite methods for brainwashing us is to use celebrities to help promote their ideas.
The Elites are making certain celebrities dress and act like pimps and hoes to condition us to behave like pimps and hoes. Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber are great examples of these Illuminati controlled celebrities.
The main purpose for conditioning us to think like pimps and hoes is to destroy our morals and family values. A society that lacks morals and values is a lot easier to control than a society that has integrity. Why do you think we have so many social problems, family issues, and divorces these days? These things were done by design to divide and conquer us.
“Experience has proven that the simplest method of securing a silent weapon and gaining control of the public is to keep the public undisciplined and ignorant of the basic system principles on the one hand, while keeping them confused, disorganized, and distracted with matters of no real importance on the other hand.
This is achieved by:
- disengaging their minds; sabotaging their mental activities; providing a low-quality program of public education in mathematics, logic, systems design and economics; and discouraging technical creativity.
- engaging their emotions, increasing their self-indulgence and their indulgence in emotional and physical activities, by:
- unrelenting emotional affrontations and attacks (mental and emotional rape) by way of constant barrage of sex, violence, and wars in the media – especially the T.V. and the newspapers.
- giving them what they desire – in excess – “junk food for thought” – and depriving them of what they really need.
- rewriting history and law and subjecting the public to the deviant creation, thus being able to shift their thinking from personal needs to highly fabricated outside priorities.
These preclude their interest in and discovery of the silent weapons of social automation technology.
The general rule is that there is a profit in confusion; the more confusion, the more profit. Therefore, the best approach is to create problems and then offer solutions.” [Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, pg. 36-37]
Below is an excerpt of my upcoming book about word magic and the occult definition of words. This book is near completion and should be available for purchase by the end of March 2016. To see if it is available for purchase, visit this page.
People living in developed countries often like to invest in the stock market. What they do not realize is that the stock market is a system that does not flow well with the Laws of Nature. Every time people participate in the stock market, they unknowingly support the evil act of selling human souls, because the word sold sounds similar to “souled”.
At the deeper level, the stock market is the commerce system that sells or trades our soul energy, which is why it is called a stock market. Many of the stocks in the stock market do not really represent the shares of corporations. Instead, they represent the artificial persons of the natural persons. The main reason why corporate stocks have value is because they are linked to human beings. In other words, we are the “livestock” or “living stock” that are sold/souled in the stock market by the traitors/traders of humanity.
The word stock is defined as “a quantity of something accumulated, as for future use”. As for the word livestock, it is defined as “the horses, cattle, sheep, and other useful animals kept or raised on a farm or ranch”. The Controllers (Dark Magicians) consider us human beings as sheep, which is why Christians are called sheep. We are the sheeple living on a “farm” called Earth, which is a prison planet for domesticating human beings to be good little slaves. To be more specific, we are the baby/bay-bee raised on a farm to produce “honey” or “golden blood plasma” for the Dark Forces, so that they can extend their life span.
In certain ways, most human beings are not that much different from horses, cattle, and sheep, because they have been domesticated by the Controllers of the New World Order to obey their authorities and government. This is why when you talk to people about the New World Order and government conspiracy, most of them look at you like you are crazy. Some of them may even physically attack you for telling them the truth. What a bunch of sheeple and domesticated “animals”!
The sheeple are so brainwashed that they can not see that they are being domesticated and sold/“souled” on the stock market. To make matters worse, their soul energy is being stocked in the stock market to be sucked out later by the demons or “energy vampires” of the Dark Forces. This is why one of the definitions of the word stock is “a quantity of something accumulated, as for future use”.
One of the origins of the word stock is derived from the Old French word stocc, meaning “stump, post, stake, tree trunk, log”. The word trunk originated from the Old French word tronc, meaning “trunk of a tree, trunk of the human body, wooden block”. In English, one of the definitions of the word trunk is “the body of a person or an animal excluding the head and limbs; torso”. It can also mean “the main channel, artery, or line in a river, railroad, highway, canal, or other tributary system”.
The occult definitions in the previous paragraph reveal to you the relation among the stock market, the human body, and water. In other words, your “body” is being sold/souled on the stock market for currency/current-sea/current-chi. The currency that represents your time and energy.

Cognitive dissonance is a powerful drug. It makes otherwise-very-intelligent people goofy and incoherent in their thinking and blinds them to certain realities that they should normally see right in front of their noses. I witness it all the time in the field of economics — a key piece of logic, a key fact that certain people absolutely refuse to take into account simply because they have a singular idea of how the world works and they cannot allow that idea to ever come into question. They would rather leap into a mental gymnastics routine worthy of an Olympic gold medal than examine the truth. And if you confront them on it, they’ll accuse YOU of being the one in denial.
This is how we ended up with the credit crisis and market crash of 2008/2009. This is how very few people saw the writing on the wall with Syria and ISIS and the fact that the funding and training of Islamic extremists by Western governments for the purpose of proxy insurgency might not be such a great concept. It is the reason why it took years for the mainstream to acknowledge the advent of the East/West paradigm, the same paradigm that alternative analysts warned about years in advance. This is why most mainstream AND alternative analysts completely discounted a successful Brexit referendum. And, it is why the vast majority of pundits could not even conceive of a Trump victory in 2016. I could write a list 20 pages long on all the geopolitical and fiscal developments most people missed because they were clinging to assumptions rather than evidence.
Unfortunately, the liberty movement is also sometimes vulnerable to such assumptions. The most dangerous of which revolve around the rise of President-elect Donald Trump.
I have seen endless theories over the past several months on all the ways in which the global elites would sabotage the Trump campaign. I believe the phrase “they will never allow him to win” was repeated in nearly every discussion on the election. The assumption in this instance was that Trump is “anti-establishment” and, therefore, a threat to the globalists. These are the same globalists that people also claimed would “rig the election,” or initiate a “coup” in the electoral college to stop a Trump presidency.
Of course, this never happened. So, a large percentage of the movement needs to question — why didn’t it happen? How did Trump win within a system we know has been rigged for decades?
You’ll hear hundreds of theories and rationalizations on Trump’s miraculous victory, but a reason you will almost never hear is also the most likely one: Trump won the election because he serves the interests of the establishment. Trump won because he is a fake.
This is not an idea that many liberty activists want to entertain. They were so repulsed by the proposition of Hillary Clinton taking the helm at the White House that they would have invested themselves in almost ANYONE running against her, even if they thought that candidate might be controlled opposition. However, not just anyone was fielded as a candidate; Trump was fielded, and for good reason. I predicted before the Republican and Democratic primaries that the final election would be between Trump and Clinton in my article Will A Trump Presidency Really Change Anything For The Better?, published in March, and here is a quote on why:
“The other ingenious aspect of the Trump campaign is really who he is running against — Hillary Clinton, a rabidly liberal candidate even more hated than Barack Obama. A candidate with a potentially serious criminal record and a penchant for an outright communistic world view far beyond that of Bernie Sanders. Those of us who have been in the writing field for a long time and have dabbled in fiction know that in order to create a fantastic hero, you must first put even more work into creating a fantastic villain. The hero is nothing without the villain.
The unmitigated horror inherent in the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency is like adding jet fuel to the Trump campaign. (And yes, I am assuming according to the results of the primaries so far that the final election will be between Trump and Clinton).”
My point back then as well as now is that without Clinton as the counter-party, Trump would not have garnered the political following he did. Any other Democratic candidate would not have galvanized conservatives so fervently. As I continued in my pre-primaries article:
“Donald Trump appears to be the perfect antithesis to Hillary Clinton. … the real question is, is Trump a reflection of the frustration and defiance of the conservative population, or, is he a clever ruse by the establishment to co-opt and placate the conservative population before we rebel?”
The staging of the 2016 election might have appeared to some people to be absolute chaos, but to me, it could not have been more perfectly scripted. In later articles covering the election I went on to give Trump a chance. I stated that I had little doubt that he would win the election and that this would be followed by an economic crisis, probably triggered early in his first term. Conservative movements would be set up as scapegoats for a crash the globalists had created. However, I believed it (marginally) possible that Trump was not aware of this strategy on the part of the elites. Today, I no longer hold this view.
The first and worst sign that Trump is not anywhere near “anti-establishment” has been his complete reversal of his original “drain the swamp” rhetoric. Trump is not only NOT draining the swamp that is the Washington D.C. and corporate elitist revolving door, he is adding even more creatures of varying ghoulishness. As Newt Gingrich, who describes himself as an outside adviser to Trump, recently stated:
“I’m told he now just disclaims that…” [Draining the swamp] “He now says it was cute, but he doesn’t want to use it anymore…”
There is a good reason why Trump no longer wants to use that particular slogan — his cabinet is now filled with the exact same elitists he used to slam along with the Washington establishment.
Trump first placed former Goldman Sachs partner Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary. Goldman Sachs has a long history of insinuating its alumni into vital positions within government bodies dealing directly with the economy. Mnuchin is particularly troubling because of his ties to George Soros; Mnuchin used to work directly for George Soros at Soros Fund Management up until 2004.
Then, for those people that thought maybe Mnuchin was just an anomaly, Trump added Gary Cohn, president of Goldman Sachs, as the director of the National Economic Council.
Trump’s chief strategist and Breitbart executive Steve Bannon is also a former Goldman Sachs investment banker.
It is interesting to note that over a quarter of the gains in the delusional Dow Jones spike after Trump’s election was tied to a rise in Goldman Sachs stock value. Imagine that…
Trump is also now “advised” on economic matters by the likes of JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon. Are we starting to get the picture here?
If that is not enough, then how about the fact that Trump is being closely advised by long time globalist Henry Kissinger (just as Vladimir Putin is advised by Kissinger)? I’m not sure why so many people are surprised by this arrangement; Trump was meeting with Kissinger months before the election. No matter the administration, there is ALWAYS a high level globalist behind the curtain. Barack Obama had Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Trump and Putin have Kissinger.
I won’t go into the numerous establishment Republicans that Trump has tapped for his administration, I will save that can of worms for another article, but anyone in the Liberty Movement that is not at least generally suspicious of Trump at this point is probably kidding themselves. The bottom line is, Trump has already LIED to his political base. He has surrounded himself with globalists and financial gatekeepers when he originally criticized Clinton for the same behavior. At this point, as long as he working in close proximity with such parasites there is no way for us to know if he is calling the shots, or if his handlers are making decisions for him.
I have heard it argued that Trump “has no choices” outside of D.C. insiders, which is why his cabinet is loaded with bottom feeders from Goldman Sachs. I find this argument rather naive. I would argue that there are thousands of brilliant professionals and people far more trustworthy outside of the beltway that could populate Trump’s cabinet and “make America great again.” I would even argue that ANY person with little experience inside the D.C. corruption chamber would be better suited to the job.
It seems to me that there are some activists that just can’t let go of the notion that Trump was the candidate the elites wanted all along. After all, didn’t the powers-that-be do everything in their power to try and stop him from winning the election?
Well, not really. The media firestorm surrounding Trump, though highly negative in tone, only boosted Trump’s exposure throughout the election. In fact, Trump received more coverage from outlets like CNN than all the other candidates combined.
This was the exact opposite tactic that the elitist controlled media used against true liberty candidate Ron Paul in 2012. With Paul, the media went out of their way to ignore him; they even refused to show a single Ron Paul campaign sign in a crowd if they could avoid it. This was a concerted systematic effort on the part of left AND right wing media outlets to ensure that no one outside of the internet heard about Ron Paul.
So what happened with Trump? Why did the mainstream media abandon a strategy that was very effective against Ron Paul, and why did they give Trump endless free coverage?
The elites also did not take very stringent measures to disrupt Trump’s candidacy early in the race. The Republican National Convention undertook a campaign of disinformation and rule changes in order to ensure that Ron Paul would have no chance of organizing an upset against establishment choice Mitt Romney. The same exact kind of treachery was used by the DNC in 2016 to sabotage Bernie Sanders — arguably a far more popular and effective candidate than Hillary Clinton. The party elites have numerous tools at their disposal to kill a candidate’s chances before he or she ever makes it on the national stage, yet, we are supposed to believe that Trump just slipped through the cracks, or beat them at their own game? I think not.
The election itself was riddled with email leaks and data dumps showcasing the corruption of the Clinton campaign, and yes, this did help to ensure a Trump win. The accusations of “Russian hacking” is clearly a sideshow, but the question remains, who did feed that information to Wikileaks? Some theorize that “disgruntled employees” within the U.S. intelligence apparatus may have leaked the data. I think they were not disgruntled. I think that most of the leaks were part of the election theater from the very beginning. In light of Trump’s clear goal to entrench banking vampires within his administration, I think that the elites always intended for him to “win” the election.
Of course, for some in the liberty movement this claim is sacrilegious. They don’t want to hear it, they’ll hate me for saying it, and that’s fine. I started my work in 2006 during the Bush years, and I remember quite well what it was like. I have little doubt that some people will be accusing me of being a “liberal” before they even finish this article, just as people called me a “Neo-Con” during the Obama administration. People who held fast to “conspiracy theories” surrounding the election and how Clinton was the “chosen one” will now hypocritically call me a “conspiracy theorist” for pointing out that NO ONE gets into the White House without being vetted by the elites, even Trump.
Working in alternative media means not caring if people like you or dislike you. I’ve been able to make numerous correct predictions because I do not concern myself with the pressures of conforming to group-think. My only hope is that many in the movement realize sooner rather than later that their faith in Trump has been ill invested. The great danger is that the liberty movement, the best last chance for saving this nation, will sit on its collective hands idle, centralizing all their hopes and eggs into the Trump basket, waiting for him to gallop in on his white horse and save us all from oblivion. And when that time comes, I suspect that he will do nothing, and the movement will be neutralized by its own desperate desire for a hero and an idol.
I have some pretty high intellect friends who were fooled by this election which just goes to show you how HOPE can influence a person’s decisions. To those who are so much more intelligent than I ever hoped to be, you have my sincere sympathy. Let this be a lesson that you will never forget, money talks, and bullshit walks away into the sunset. By now there should be no one left alive that does not fear the International Investment Banking Cartel! They are, whether we like it or not, the masters of this fucked up world. This election only served to demoralize the remaining few who clinged to hope. To better comprehend this election, visualize the worlds biggest battle ship sinking!

According to Semiramis (also known as the “Queen of Heaven”, the “Great Abomination”, the “Mother of All Whores” and the inventor of idolatry) if you want to rule over people, all you need is a “pillar and a post”.
What you do, is you take one object—- a tall vertical supporting column— and you label it a “pillar” and you take another tall vertical supporting column, and label it a “post”, thereby creating a difference between them.
Even if the difference is merely a name or a label, it is enough to fool people into thinking a difference exists.
This is the essence of “divide and conquer”.
You divide people using the same methods. You apply labels to them and exploit their differences: black and white, rich and poor, short and tall, Catholic and Lutheran, Republican and Democrat, Palestinian and Israeli.
This is one of the essential esoteric teachings of Freemasonry worldwide and it is the foundation plank of the Babylonian Slave System which is now masquerading as the lawful governments of the world.
Just call it something different.
Exploit the differences.
United States v. United States of America.
But what happens when we wake up like the dumb beasts on Christmas Eve and decide to look and think and talk?
Then we notice that Russians and Americans are indistinguishable until they open their mouths, that black people have five fingers and toes just like white people, that most of the time the voting records of Democrats are the same as the voting records of Republicans.
We’ve been fed a line. Old Semiramis has been at it again.
Having recognized the lies and enslavement of the Babylonian System, and having recognized the “pillar” and the “post” routine being played upon us, what do we do about it?
We see through it.
We stop believing the lie—stop seeing differences where none exist. It’s not a pillar or a post. It’s a tall vertical support column.
We stop paying any attention to the labels.
We stop playing the game.
We aren’t “United States Citizens” and we aren’t “citizens of the United States” either.
We aren’t “vessels in commerce“.
We aren’t names or labels or numbers.
We aren’t members of political parties.
And at the moment you realize who you are, you set yourself free of all this Babylonian idiocy. The illusions are shattered like a magic spell, and the simplicity and beauty of life is revealed.
So don’t wait another moment. Sit down right now and look at what I am telling you and say—– WTH? What have I been thinking?

CFR Fears Collapse of UN Under
Globalists claim UN unfairly targeted by nationalist demagogues who fear black helicopters

The globalist elite are fearful that President-elect Trump and congressional Republicans will use a recent UN resolution harshly critical of Israel as justification to promote America’s exit from the organization.
Stewart Patrick, senior fellow and director of the aptly-named program on International Institutions and Global Governance at the Council on Foreign Relations, lamented the end of the “most multilaterally-inclined US administration in history” and slammed President-elect Donald Trump as “an unapologetic nationalist.”
“Among the many foreign policy uncertainties created by Donald Trump’s election, there is one prediction we can take to the bank: The United Nations is going to get hammered,” he wrote.
“An unapologetic nationalist is bound for the White House, Republicans are in control of both houses of Congress—and the world body is in their crosshairs.”
In response to a recent UN Security Council resolution that harshly criticized Israel’s settlement policy in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, congressional Republicans are pushing numerous bills to cut funding to the UN, or withdraw the United States from the world body completely.
Florida Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has regularly introduced a bill to alter the funding mechanism for the UN, making America’s contributions to the UN budget a voluntarily amount rather than a legally binding, automatically assessed amount.
The United States contributes roughly 22% of the UN’s total operating budget, amounting to nearly $3 billion in 2016 alone.
The American Sovereignty Restoration Act, introduced by Alabama Representative Mike Rogers in 2015 and currently languishing in the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, would completely withdraw the United States from the UN.
Patrick harshly criticized previous attempts by Congress to challenge the UN, specifically an effort by then-North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms to withhold the United States’ share of the UN’s budget until specific reforms were made.
“Conservative critics, both in and outside government, regularly scapegoat the UN for the failures of its member states,” Patrick suggested. “And because it lacks a domestic constituency, it is an irresistible target for nationalistic demagogues.”
While President Obama once proclaimed himself a “citizen of the world,” Trump has rallied a “populist base deeply skeptical of international organizations, where paranoid fantasies about UN ‘black helicopters’ as a threat to American sovereignty run deep.”
The “paranoid fantasies” referred to by Patrick are far from unfounded, as the United Nations has already violated America’s national sovereignty by seizing control of communities and land through Agenda 21 (now Agenda 2030) and local law enforcement agencies through the Strong Cities Initiative.
If Trump turns out to be a Nationalist demagogue, I will have to apologize to him, as the U.N. is on my list of shitheads.
My guess is, this lady is a demagogue too!

First, please be patient with yourself as you read through these facts. It took years of hard labor by dozens of good people to ferret out each little piece of this. It’s going to take you at least an hour or two to take it in and follow the logic to its inexorable conclusion.
When you get to the end, you will find a template that lays out the very simple one-page Fraud Killer. This does not mean that you should abandon your efforts to document your own identity and proper standing and that of your relatives—but you now have in your hands a very powerful means to break the shackles of the Great Fraud.
Starting at First Base…From Anna
Many people are profoundly confused. This System the rats have put in place IS confusing and it is MEANT to be confusing. That’s their whole schtick— to confuse you with other corporate personas and to confuse you regarding the jurisdiction they are operating in. And they do a good job of both, if you let them.
The governmental services corporations operating under whatever name— say, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC.—have what is called a “deemed trust interest” in the people and the assets of the land and sea they service. This is a weak trust interest, similar to a mechanics lien on a house. It only comes into play when and if the actual trust operators fail to function—and that is what has happened.
The governmental services corporation operated by FDR went bankrupt and falsely claimed that the federal “states” and “citizenry thereof” were voluntary sureties standing good for the debts of the United States of America, Inc. (Conference of Governors meeting March 6, 1933.) They did this in such a way as to confuse people about which “states” and which “citizens” they were talking about (federal “states” and federal “citizens” only) which has led to all sorts of false claims against you and your organic States of the Union.
Next, the United Nations Corporation stepped in and organized the International Monetary Fund, Inc., which organized the UNITED STATES, INC. – a French commercial corporation, to take over the governmental services contracts of the old United States of America, Inc.
Operating this scheme, the UNITED STATES, INC. was able to charge off all its expenses against the United States of America, Inc. during its bankruptcy reorganization, and the cost of all this got passed through to the presumed “sureties”—us. But then, the unthinkable happened. The Pope woke up and forced the United States of America, Inc. to end its decades long “reorganization” and settle the bankruptcy. Suddenly, the UNITED STATES, INC. could no longer just pass through any and every expense to the American people and their States.
The UNITED STATES, INC. has no contract with our states. Its only contract was with the bankrupt United States of America, Inc., so they are both out of luck and out of pocket—-and seeking a means to re-establish another cozy bankruptcy fraud, war, or other means to fill their coffers. They are also looking for the alternative route— ways to reduce their expenses by killing off and reducing the number of their creditors.
We need to be aware of this circumstance if we wish to rightly interpret what is going on in the stock markets and headlines of the world. We also need to be aware in terms of the propaganda that we are being fed. The UNITED STATES, INC. needs another war for profit, so it is busy pumping up a new “enemy” called ISIS, which it funded and continues to fund. All this is being done as a justification for spending our money and spilling our blood (not to mention the other poor suckers) so that the UNITED STATES, INC. has an expense it can charge againstus.
The UNITED STATES makes money when it provides “services” to us, so it has been busily contriving all manner of services it can provide —including services we don’t want or need.
The Border Problem is a money maker for the UNITED STATES. It provides services to all those Mexican immigrants, and then charges us for the cost of this. They naturally charge us a lot more than it actually costs them, so they make out like bandits. They also claim each new immigrant as another “American” slave, and issue bonds based on the value of their labor. Can you say, “Double points!”
Same thing with wars and other conflicts— remember the Department of Defense’s $400 hammers and $1500 gold-plated toilet seats? The UNITED STATES makes money providing us with “defense services”. So long as nobody is minding the store, they can charge however much they like for providing these “services”. And they do.
This is the conflict of interest at the heart of the current misery. The State governments are supposed to ride herd on their service contracts with the feds, but over time, the “federal” government— the private, for-profit, foreign corporate government— has contrived to co-opt the State governments and to redefine them as “franchises” of their own corporation. This is how we have wound up with the “State of Georgia” and the “STATE OF GEORGIA”.
Do we seriously expect the local franchise of Burger King to question the actions of Burger King, International?
Instead, the “State” governments receive money as a kick-back from the “federal” government in the form of “federal revenue sharing”.
This is why government spending is out of control and will be out of controluntil we put our feet down and stop it—-until we seize back our misappropriated credit, and assert our position as the Priority Creditors of the UNITED STATES, INC. and the STATES it operates as franchises—and start applying the kind of pressure they understand: financial pressure.
To calm down the Border problem, groups of us have established commercial liens providing for very hefty and escalating fines to be applied against the perpetuators and their immediate bosses, the IMF and the UN. Suddenly, it is not profitable to be welcoming all those Mexicans. So what happens? The flood slows to a trickle.
To calm down the War Fever, groups of us have established commercial liens providing for very hefty and escalating fines to be applied against them for every American life lost and for every bit of property damage. Suddenly, war is no longer so profitable.
We must all stop thinking of this “thing” in Washington, DC as “our” government. It is not and it never has been. It is a criminally self-interested, foreign, for-profit, mostly foreign-owned corporation hired to provide nineteen governmental services, and it is seriously run amok.
As a corporation there is nothing sacrosanct about the “federal government”. It has exactly the same standing and status as any other commercial corporation on earth. We need to deal with it the same way we would deal with Ford Motor Company or General Electric or Monsanto.
Would you “petition” the corporate officers of these companies and ask them to play nice? That’s what you are doing with all these senseless petitions to Congress. If they wanted to play nice and were willing to play nice, they would already be doing so. There would be no need for petitions seeking redress for grievances.
So why bother?
Would you work your rump off and spend billions of dollars on political candidates and political parties trying to elect new mid-level corporate officers, aka, members of Congress, knowing that the direction of the corporation is utterly controlled by foreign shareholders?
The UNITED STATES, INC. is owned and operated by the INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND (IMF) and the IMF is owned and operated by the UNITED NATIONS, CORPORATION. Our real beef, therefore, is with the IMF and the UN.
If we have a beef with the way the UNITED STATES, INC. is being run— and we do—-then the obvious things to be done are the same as with any other corporation. You put the bite on them and their owners and operators via bad publicity, commercial liens, law suits in appropriate venues, and boycotts.
That’s why commercial liens against the UNITED STATES, INC. need to be filed simultaneously against the IMF and UN. They are responsible for what the UNITED STATES, INC. is doing or failing to do, so the mismanagement of the operation comes home to them and they are then motivated to make sure that the contracts owed by the UNITED STATES, INC. are honored and the limitations of those contracts observed.
Otherwise the IMF and UN are quite content to let the UNITED STATES, INC. run roughshod over everyone and everything in sight, and there is no real consequence for them. They stand in the shadows and reap the profit and don’t even get bad publicity for their misdeeds. Drag them out into the open and lay claim to their assets.
And if any of them persist in promoting criminality of any kind, yank their charters like so many radishes in the spring.
We do have effective means of dealing with the perpetrators, but we must recognize who and what the perpetrators of this System are: the shareholders of the UNITED STATES, INC., the IMF, and the UN Corporation, all acting in collusion with the shareholders of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC., the FEDERAL RESERVE, and the UN Corporation.
All roads now lead to the UN CORPORATION, so make the claims short and sweet and addressed to the UN Secretary General.
The members of Congress are rubber stamps and window dressing, there to entertain and reassure the public. Any real power the Congress had was given away during the Roosevelt Administration to the Office of the President. As mid-level managers, members of Congress now spend most of their days trying to figure out how they can more effectively lick the boots of their foreign masters, still bring home enough bacon to satisfy the folks back home, and better feather their own nests.
Instead of wasting time and money and heartfelt effort on any aspect of the current political system or supporting candidates that at the end of the day have neither the power nor the will to truly represent anyone but themselves and their own group of cronies, use your resources to address the root of the problem: the UN, the IMF, the UNITED STATES, INC. and their “federal” STATES.
Expose them. Expose what they have done and are doing here. Expose their motives and deal with those motives effectively. Realize that they are in the business of selling you “governmental services” and that you are in charge of what you buy or don’t buy —including “Obummercare”. Don’t let anyone “represent” you or your estate in these matters. The cretins in Congress are not there to represent you. They are there to represent the UNITED STATES, INC. They will always vote and act to enrich the corporation at your expense.
Many will remember that back in the 1970’s magazine publishers offered “free” subscriptions—get three months of blah-blah magazine absolutely free! No obligation! But what they didn’t tell people was that they would also receive a one month “free subscription” to six other magazines and if the victim didn’t immediately respond and cancel all these subscriptions, they would be charged for all of them at full price— subject to automatic renewal, too.
Such a deal we’ve got for you. Soon, if you don’t stand up for yourselves and cancel your “subscriptions” you will literally owe your soul to the Company Store, and be obligated to buy everything from bootlaces to coffins from the UNITED STATES, INC.
The first and most important action step is to divorce from their political process. Get your own mind firmly wrapped around the fact that the entire American political tableau is meaningless. Democrat? Republican? It doesn’t matter who gets elected to fill those Congressional seats, because the seats themselves are bought, paid for, and controlled by a foreign corporation.
Once you truly understand this, it will be easy to rescind “your” Voter Registration and announce that you will henceforth operate only as an Elector. It will be easy to write a letter to “your” Congressional Delegation— telling them that they don’t represent you nor your organic State of the Union. It will be easy to do the same thing at the STATE level and express your ire that these people who claim to “represent” you have allowed “federal revenue sharing”—-kick backs based on the misappropriation of your credit—to undermine our nation and instead promote the establishment of federal “STATES” to usurp the rightful government you are owed and undermine the checks and balances needed to protect the interests of the people.
Once you know who “they” are, what they are and what they aren’t, it is a lot easier to deal with them effectively and efficiently. So this is First Base. Shrug off the chains these corporations have offered to place on you, take back your inherent standing, and present yourself— act “without representation” and “without the United States”.

December 27, 2016
“What’s past is prologue.” ― William Shakespeare, The Tempest
What a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year this has been.
Endless wars. Toxic politics. Violence. Hunger. Police shootings. Mass shootings. Economic downturns. Political circuses. Senseless tragedies. Loss. Heartache. Intolerance. Prejudice. Hatred. Apathy. Meanness. Cruelty. Poverty. Inhumanity. Greed.
Here’s just a small sampling of what we’ve suffered through in 2016.
After three years of increasingly toxic politics, the ruling oligarchy won and “we the people” lost. The FBI’s investigation of Hillary’s emails ended with a whimper, rather than a bang. FBI director James Comey declared Clinton’s use of a private email server to be careless rather than criminal. Bernie Sanders sparked a movement only to turn into a cheerleader for Hillary Clinton. Clinton won the popular vote but lost the election. Donald Trump won the White House while the American people lost any hope of ending the corporate elite’s grip on the government.
The government declared war on so-called “fake news” while continuing to peddle its own brand of propaganda. President Obama quietly re-upped the National Defense Authorization Act, including a provision that establishes a government agency to purportedly counter propaganda and disinformation.
More people died at the hands of the police. Shootings of unarmed citizens (especially African-Americans) by police claimed more lives than previously estimated, reinforcing concerns about police misconduct and the use of excessive force. Police in Baton Rouge shot Alton Sterling. Police in St. Paul shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop. Ohio police shot 13-year-old Tyre King after the boy pulls out a BB gun. Wisconsin was locked down after protests erupt over a police shooting of a fleeing man. Oklahoma police shot and killed Terence Crutcher during a traffic stop while the man’s hands were raised in the air. North Carolina police killed Keith Lamont Scott, spurring two nights of violent protests. San Diego police killed Alfred Olango after he removed a vape smoking device from his pocket. Los Angeles police shot Carnell Snell Jr. after he fled a vehicle with a paper license plate.
We lost some bright stars this year. Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia’s death left the court deadlocked and his successor up for grabs. Joining the ranks of the notable deceased were Muhammad Ali, David Bowie, Fidel Castro, Leonard Cohen, Carrie Fisher, John Glenn, Merle Haggard, Harper Lee, George Michael, Prince, Nancy Reagan, Janet Reno, Elie Wiesel, and Gene Wilder.
Diseases claimed more lives. The deadly Zika virus spread outwards from Latin America and into the U.S.
The rich got richer. The Panama Papers leak pulled back the curtain on schemes by the wealthy to hide their funds in shell companies.
Free speech was dealt one knock-out punch after another. First Amendment activities were pummeled, punched, kicked, choked, chained and generally gagged all across the country. The reasons for such censorship varied widely from political correctness, safety concerns and bullying to national security and hate crimes but the end result remained the same: the complete eradication of what Benjamin Franklin referred to as the “principal pillar of a free government.”
The debate over equality took many forms. African-Americans boycotted the Oscars over the absence of nominations for people of color, while the Treasury Department announced its decision to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. North Carolina’s debate over transgender bathrooms ignited a nationwide fury. Meanwhile, the U.S. military opened its doors to transgender individuals. A unanimous Supreme Court affirmed a Texas law that counts everyone, not just eligible voters, in determining legislative districts. The nation’s highest court also upheld affirmative action, while declaring a Texas law on abortion clinics to be an unnecessary burden on women.
Environmental concerns were downplayed in favor of corporate interests. Flint, Michigan’s contaminated water was declared a state and federal emergency, while thousands protested the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline and its impact on water sources.
Technology rendered Americans vulnerable to threats from government spies, police, hackers and power failures. The Justice Department battled Apple in court over access to its customers’ locked, encrypted iPhones. Microsoft sued the U.S. government over its access to customers’ emails and files without their knowledge. Yahoo confirmed that over half a billion user accounts had been hacked. Police departments across the country continued to use Stingray devices to collect cellphone data in real time, often without a warrant. A six-hour system shutdown resulted in hundreds of Delta flights being cancelled and thousands of people stranded.
Police became even more militarized and weaponized. Despite concerns about the government’s steady transformation of local police into a standing military army, local police agencies continued to acquire weaponry, training and equipment suited for the battlefield. In North Dakota, for instance, police were authorized to acquire and use armed drones. Likewise, the use of SWAT teams for routine policing tasks has increased the danger for police and citizens alike.
Children were hurt. A 17-year-old endangered silverback gorilla was shot preemptively after a 3-year-old child climbed into its zoo enclosure. In Disney World, an alligator snatched a 2-year-old boy off one of the resort’s man-made beaches. A school bus crash in Tennessee killed five children. And police resource officers made schools less safe, with students being arrested, tasered and severely disciplined for minor infractions.
Computers asserted their superiority over their human counterparts, who were easily controlled by bread and circuses. Google’s artificial intelligence program, AlphaGo, defeated its human opponent in a DeepMind Challenge Match. Pokemon Go took the world by storm and turned users into mindless entertainment zombies.
Terrorism took many forms. Brussels was locked down in the wake of terrorist attacks that killed dozens and wounded hundreds. A shootout between a gunman and police wrought havoc on a gay nightclub in Orlando. Terrorists armed with explosives and guns opened fire in Istanbul Airport. A trucker drives into a crowd of revelers on Bastille Day in France. Acts of suspected terrorism take place throughout Germany, including attacks using axes, knives and machetes. Japan undergoes a mass killing when a man armed with a knife targets disabled patients at a care facility. Syria continued to be ravaged by bomb strikes, terrorism and international conflict.
Science crossed into new frontiers. Doctors announced the birth of the first healthy three-parent baby created with DNA from three separate people. Elon Musk outlined his plan to populate Mars.
Tragedies abounded. An Amtrak train derailed outside of Philadelphia. A commuter train crashed through a barrier in New Jersey. Floods in Texas killed nine soldiers stationed at Fort Hood. Heatwaves swept the southwest, fueling wildfires. Flash floods and heavy rain devastated parts of Maryland and Louisiana.
The nanny state went into overdrive. Philadelphia gave the green light to a tax on sugary drinks. The FDA issued guidelines to urge food manufacturers and chain restaurants to reduce salt use.
The government waged a war on cash. Not content to swindle, cheat, scam, and generally defraud Americans by way of wasteful pork barrel legislation, asset forfeiture schemes, and costly stimulus packages, the government and its corporate partners in crime came up with a new scheme to not only scam taxpayers out of what’s left of their paychecks but also make us foot the bill. The government’s war on cash is a concerted campaign to do away with large bills such as $20s, $50s, $100s and shift consumers towards a digital mode of commerce that can easily be monitored, tracked, tabulated, mined for data, hacked, hijacked and confiscated when convenient.
The Deep State reared its ugly head. Comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes, this government within a government is the real reason “we the people” have no real control over our so-called representatives. It’s every facet of a government that is no longer friendly to freedom and is working overtime to trample the Constitution underfoot and render the citizenry powerless in the face of the government’s power grabs, corruption and abusive tactics. These are the key players that drive the shadow government. They are the hidden face of the American police state that has continued past Election Day.
The U.S. military industrial complex—aided by the Obama administration—armed the world while padding its own pockets. According to the Center for International Policy, President Obama has brokered more arms deals than any administration since World War II. For instance, the U.S. agreed to provide Israel with $38 billion in military aid over the next ten years, in exchange for Israel committing to buy U.S. weapons.
Now that’s not to say that 2016 didn’t have its high points, as well, but it’s awfully hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel right now.
Frequently, I receive emails from people urging me to leave the country before the “hammer falls.” However, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, there is nowhere in the world to escape from the injustice of tyrants, bullies and petty dictators. As Ronald Reagan recognized back in 1964, “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.”
Let’s not take the mistakes of 2016 into a new year with us. The election is over. The oligarchs remain in power. The police state is marching forward, more powerful than ever. All signs point to business as usual. The game continues to be rigged.
The lesson for those of us in the American police state is simply this: if there is to be any hope for freedom in 2017, it rests with “we the people” engaging in local, grassroots activism that transforms our communities and our government from the ground up.
Let’s get started.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GET OFF YOUR ASS AND DO SOME READING!
December 27th, 2016 by olddog
BY Michael Gaddy
*Author’s note: There is a question which deserves much more attention than it receives: Considering Lincoln was willing to make slavery perpetual and to remove it from even congressional action with the Corwin amendment in order to “preserve the Union,” had the Southern states repealed their secession, when would slavery have ended? Not rejoining a Union in which slavery would be perpetual is proof positive the war was not about slavery, nor did the South secede to protect slavery. I believe a substantial case can be made that had the Southern states not seceded and had in fact rejoined Lincoln’s precious Union, slavery would have existed much longer in this country than it did.
“I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.” Abraham Lincoln, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1861.
When Abraham Lincoln took office in March of 1861, this country had observed as legal the institution of chattel slavery for its entire existence. President Lincoln, having secured not one electoral vote from the Southern States declared in his First Inaugural Address that it was his full intention to use the power of the presidency to perpetuate and protect that onerous institution “in the states where it exists.”
Certainly not taught in our government schools is the fact that two days before Lincoln took the Oath of Office of President, a proposed amendment to the Constitution referred to as the Corwin Amendment passed both houses of Congress and was being sent to the states for ratification. Lincoln spoke of his support for this amendment in his Inaugural address on March 4.
“I understand a proposed amendment to the Constitution—which amendment, however, I have not seen—has passed Congress, to the effect that the Federal Government shall never interfere with the domestic institutions of the States, including that of persons held to service. To avoid misconstruction of what I have said, I depart from my purpose not to speak of particular amendments so far as to say that, holding such a provision to now be implied constitutional law, I have no objection to its being made express and irrevocable.”
History shows that Lincoln was not being truthful when he stated he had not seen the proposed amendment which had passed both houses of congress. Author Doris Kearns-Goodwin in her “political biography” of Abraham Lincoln titled Team of Rivals states the following on page 296.
“He [Lincoln] instructed Seward to introduce these proposals in the Senate Committee of Thirteen without indicating they issued from Springfield. The first resolved that ‘the Constitution should never be altered so as to authorize Congress to abolish or interfere with slavery in the states.’ Another recommendation that he instructed Seward to get through Congress was that ‘all state personal liberty laws in opposition to the Fugitive Slave Law be repealed.”
Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo, author of The Real Lincoln and Lincoln Unmasked declared that Lincoln not only was aware of the proposed amendment but, was in fact, its author. Below is the text of that amendment which was authored/endorsed by Lincoln, passed by both houses of congress and sent personally to the governor of each state by Lincoln himself, proof of which was discovered in 2006 in a museum in Allentown, PA. This critical piece of history is available in the records of the U.S. House of Representatives, 106th Congress, 2nd Session, The Constitution of the United States of America, Doc. No. 106-214.
“No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State.”
Prior to Lincoln’s military invasion of the South, Lincoln had done everything within his power to make chattel slavery perpetual throughout the entire country. He had also instructed his Secretary of State William H. Seward to work on federal legislation that would outlaw any attempts to nullify the Fugitive Slave law. Several states in the North had passed laws to prohibit the federally mandated return of fugitive slaves. Lincoln wanted a federal law that would counter such legislation by the states.
Lincoln was more than willing to make the enslavement of the black race perpetual–if it would preserve the Union.
Looked upon by an intelligent eye rather than an emotional one, Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, which he issued twice, must be seen as simply another political maneuver to preserve/restore the union.
“If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it. …What I do about Slavery and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save this Union.” ~Lincoln in an open letter to Horace Greeley, which appeared in the New York Tribune on August 22, 1862.
Here, again, in his own words, Lincoln states that Slavery was not his primary interest. Lincoln’s primary goal was the preservation of the Union which would protect the interests of the Socialists in his cabinet and armed forces who were the founders of the Republican Party.
The now grossly misunderstood and misrepresented Emancipation Proclamation was political BS plain and simple. The edict freed only the slaves in the states in which Lincoln had no control. It did not free any of the slaves that were currently under the control of the Union Army in occupied territory in any of the Southern states. The questions must be asked: if the Union forces had not achieved what Lincoln considered to be a victory at Antietam, would he have issued the proclamation? If the Army of Virginia had won a demonstrative victory at Antietam, when would Lincoln have issued such a proclamation, if ever?
In Lincoln’s own words to Greeley, he stated he would willingly continue slavery if it would lead to the preservation of the Union. Prior to the beginning of the war, Lincoln wrote and endorsed a proposed amendment to the Constitution which would have prohibited Congress from ever abolishing or interfering with the institution of slavery. In addition, he ordered the effort be made to create a federal law that would nullify any state law that prohibited the return of fugitive slaves. The fact this same man is now referred to as the “Great Emancipator” is a great illustration of the gullibility and ignorance of the masses in our country. Adolph Hitler had the misfortune of coming to power in the wrong country.
Still, the most important question that could be asked is this; If the Southern states had not seceded; if the Union had been preserved without a war; at what point in the history of this country would a new constitutional amendment have been proposed and passed that would have freed the slaves?
Simply stated, if the South had not seceded and defended themselves from the invasion of Union forces, slavery would have been extended in our country indefinitely; the Corwin Amendment guaranteed that. It was the threat of a break-up of the Union and not any act by Abraham Lincoln and his socialist cronies that led to emancipation.
The credit for emancipation should be given to those who challenged and fought against Lincoln, not to the president who “destroyed the Constitution in order to preserve it.” Lincoln’s actions and a war that killed almost a million Americans; a war to ensure a country indivisible, were praised by Karl Marx and Adolph Hitler–need I say more?
Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo:
“Lincoln used war to destroy the U.S. Constitution in order to establish a powerful central government…” This is certainly a strong statement, but in fact Lincoln illegally suspended the writ of habeas corpus; launched a military invasion without consent of Congress; blockaded Southern ports without declaring war; imprisoned without warrant or trial some 13,000 Northern citizens who opposed his policies; arrested dozens of newspaper editors and owners and, in some cases, had federal soldiers destroy their printing presses; censored all telegraph communication; nationalized the railroads; created three new states (Kansas, Nevada, and West Virginia) without the formal consent of the citizens of those states, an act that Lincoln’s own attorney general thought was unconstitutional; ordered Federal troops to interfere with Northern elections; deported a member of Congress from Ohio after he criticized Lincoln’s unconstitutional behavior; confiscated private property; confiscated firearms in violation of the Second Amendment; and eviscerated the Ninth and Tenth Amendments.”
Lincoln and the radical republicans who put him into office held our Constitution in contempt. They knew the Southern states were seceding because of the government’s unconstitutional actions. The South was willing to leave the Union in order to protect their rights under the Constitution.
OK, Rebel, where is your proof Lincoln and the republicans held our Constitution in contempt and as an impediment to their goals and agenda? As the saying goes, “read em and weep.”
Members of Lincoln’s cabinet referred to the Constitution as “the tail of a paper kite” and “the rotten tail of a Virginia abstraction.” The above are credited to Lincoln’s Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton, as is this quote from Stanton, “A written constitution is dangerous to those of the North, for the South is using it as a shield.”
Wendell Phillips, a Boston lawyer and abolitionist said this of the North and the US Constitution, “We confess that we intend to trample underfoot the Constitution of this country.” Phillips also quoted Daniel Webster as saying the “people of New England are a law-abiding people.” To this Phillips stated, “But I say we are not a law-abiding community. God be thanked for it.”
Thaddeus Stevens, a radical republican member of the US House of Representatives from Pennsylvania was even more emphatic. “The talk of restoring the Union like it was, and the Constitution as it is, is one of the absurdities which I have heard repeated until I have become sick of it. There are many things which make such an event impossible. This Union never shall, with my consent, be restored under the constitution as it is …” “The Union as it was and the Constitution as it is–God forbid it. We must conquer the Southern states and hold them as conquered provinces.”
So, the war was not about slavery, it was about collecting a protectionist tariff and the destruction of the country “under the Constitution.” Those who continue to parrot the opposite are physical slaves to a godless, constitution–less, government and its willing shills and sycophants. More alarming, they are also mental slaves.
IN RIGHTFUL REBEL LIBERTY
It is beyond belief what government controlled education has done to America, for if three generations back had had access to the truth on a nation wide scale they surely would have revolted. Nothing is harder to understand than the present ignorance of true American history. If more people would read the real history of America it would still be a possibility. And one that I would support with my whole being, because this Nation is governed by the most vicious gang of thieves ever to control a nation. The most dangerous thing to any country is the complacency of the people. A few hours of the peoples time reading our true history would infuriate them to the point of rebellion, and leave the Banking Cartel hanging by their throats. Today the average citizen is so self centered or infatuated with entertainment they are unaware of what is and has destroyed our knowledge of what a Nation of free States should and could be. The media industry took up the lies after government schools had prepared our children to be worthless protectors of freedom by instilling a false sense of patriotism by wars against other Nations, and a total misunderstanding of the purpose of governments. We started off by being independent human beings and gradually became willing slaves and ignorant of the power banking would have over the people and their government. You do not have to remain ignorant today because of the works of real patriots like this author and several others who have the courage to not remain ignorant. I recommend to all who can still think to read this book: You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Judge Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher

This article was written by Michael Krieger and originally published at Liberty Blitzkrieg
While I’m not a Dodd-Frank fan, it’s not because it was too harsh, but because it didn’t really do much of anything. It was the typical neoliberal bait and switch, designed to look tough for public consumption, while merely making tweaks around the edges of a financial system that requires systemic, paradigm level change.
Trump’s support of repealing Dodd-Frank tells you all you need to know. A Trump Presidency will see Wall Street felons who should be in prison, running as wild and free as ever.
He will be the same thing to distressed working class whites that Obama was to the black community. A fake messiah and a shyster.
– From May’s post: Donald Trump’s True Colors Emerge as He Snuggles up to Wall Street
The fact that Steve Mnuchin was a Goldman Sachs partner is the least of my concerns when it comes to the man. Indeed, if someone wanted to create a playing card deck of sleazy Wall Street financial crisis opportunists, it’d be hard not to include Steve Mnuchin.
What exactly am I talking about? Specifically, I’m referring to the collapse of IndyMac (renamed One West), and the generous helping of government welfare Mnuchin and his partners received upon purchasing the failed banking institution. This is a financial crisis saga that is unknown to most, despite having received some extensive coverage over the past year. One of the best articles on the topic was written by David Dayen in his piece, Donald Trump’s Finance Chair Is the Anti-Populist From Hell. Here are a few excerpts:
Donald Trump’s first major staff selection since securing the Republican nomination, national finance chairman Steven Mnuchin, co-founded and manages the hedge fund Dune Capital. Not only did he make partner at Goldman Sachs, so did his father in the 1960s. With over 30 years of experience at the top levels of finance, Mnuchin was present for every recent major banking innovation, including those that brought the country to the brink of economic collapse.
Mnuchin’s presence in the campaign reveals how the qualities Trump loyalists projected on their hero don’t measure up to the truth. They have venerated him throughout the Republican primary for rejecting the dirty business of pay-to-play politics, and for populist vows to protect the ordinary worker. But in selecting Mnuchin, not only has Trump submitted to the realities of presidential campaign finance; he’s chosen one of the most notorious bankers in America to carry it out.
When I heard Mnuchin’s name last week, I immediately remembered the front lawn of his mansion. Back in 2011, local housing activists and the Occupy movement in Los Angeles camped out on that lawn to save the home of Rose Mary Gudiel, a La Puente, California, resident who faced eviction after being just two weeks late on one mortgage payment. The activists threatened to move all of Gudiel’s furniture into Mnuchin’s $26 million Bel Air estate if the eviction wasn’t stopped. Twenty police officers and a helicopter met the protesters.
Why was Mnuchin’s front lawn the focal point for the protest? Because years after forming Dune Capital in 2004, Mnuchin’s hedge fund purchased the failed lender IndyMac, one of America’s largest home lenders and a leading distributor of Alt-A mortgages, a subprime hybrid which did not require borrowers to accurately state their incomes. After IndyMac failed, Dune led the investment group that purchased it from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 2009, renaming it OneWest Bank. Mnuchin became OneWest’s principal owner and chairman.
OneWest accomplished these foreclosures through fraud. Erica Johnson-Seck, a vice president of foreclosure and bankruptcy for OneWest, explained in a July 2009 deposition that she “robo-signed” 6,000 foreclosure-related documents per week, spending just 30 seconds on each sworn affidavit that attested to the veracity of all relevant information in the case. Johnson-Seck admitted to not reading the documents before signing them, to not knowing how the records were generated, and to not signing in the presence of a notary, all of which made the affidavits she signed false evidence in court.
The OneWest subsidiary Financial Freedom executed 39 percent of all foreclosures on reverse mortgages between 2009 and 2015, despite servicing only 17 percent of the market, according to data from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) obtained by the California Reinvestment Coalition. OneWest disclosed in its most recent annual report that it’s under investigation for this disproportionate share of “widow foreclosures” by HUD’s Inspector General. The victims include 103 year-old Myrtle Lewis of North Texas, who OneWest put into foreclosure after her insurance coverage lapsed; Karen Hunziker, who got a foreclosure notice from OneWest ten days after her husband passed away in 2014; and a host of others.
Trump’s loyal fans aren’t likely to scrutinize Mnuchin’s record, but they should. You can measure political candidates in part by who they associate with. The foreclosure history in Mnuchin’s past reflects an extreme mentality of profit at all costs, and hardly a viewpoint of standing up for the little guy. Trump as populist was always something of a pose, covering for a deep nationalism and antipathy to immigrants. The Mnuchin pick just brings that into sharper relief.
Trump’s main money-chaser has profited off the suffering of ordinary Americans for years. There’s no reason to believe Trump will offer a better deal to the working class.
Moreover, an article published in The Nation covered some details of the sweetheart deal the government gave Mnuchin and team for the privilege of turning around to abuse average Americans. Here’s an excerpt from, The Worst of Wall Street: Meet Donald Trump’s Finance Chairman.
The Mnuchin group paid FDIC $1.5 billion for the bank, far less than the value of IndyMac’s assets. The FDIC was so desperate to unload IndyMac that Mnuchin and his colleagues were able to obtain, as part of the purchase deal, a so-called “shared loss” agreement from the FDIC which reimbursed these billionaires for much of their costs for foreclosing on people unlucky enough to have mortgages from IndyMac.
Within a year, the group that the Los Angeles Times called a “billionaires’ club of private financiers” had paid themselves dividends of $1.57 billion. In other words, the FDIC took much of the risk by subsidizing the bank’s troubled assets, while Mnuchin and his colleagues pocketed the profits.
The California Reinvestment Coalition—a nonprofit organization that pushes banks to reinvest in low income communities and communities of color—determined from Freedom of Information Requests that the FDIC had already paid out over $1 billion to reimburse OneWest for the cost of over 35,000 foreclosures in California and an unknown number in other states. CRC also estimated that the FDIC will eventually pay out another $1.4 billion for the costs associated with even more foreclosures in the future.
OneWest opened its doors with 33 branches and roughly $16 billion in assets. Mnuchin engineered its growth by purchasing two other failed institutions—First Federal Bank of California and La Jolla Bank—getting the FDIC to agree again to additional “loss share” arrangements so that the owners had little to lose. After these purchases, OneWest had 73 retail branches and $26 billion in assets. It also serviced billions of dollars of mortgage loans on the behalf of third parties, such as Fannie Mae. In multiple surveys of California housing counselors, OneWest was ranked among the worst mortgage servicers in the state.
Nice deal if you can get it. Oh, and there’s also this.
In July 2014, Mnuchin arranged to sell OneWest to the CIT Group for $3.4-billion—more than double what they paid for the bank five years earlier. CIT Group, a holding company that owned a Salt Lake City-based on-line bank, wanted to buy OneWest for its low-cost deposits and its network of Southern California retail branches. The consolidated bank now has assets of about $60 billion, ranking it among the nation’s 40 largest banks.
Under the terms of the acquisition, CIT agreed to pay Mnuchin $4.5 million a year for three years as the bank’s vice-chairman. Because he relinquished that post in March 31 of this year, Mnuchin was given a $10.9 million severance package, according to the Wall Street Journal.
In CIT Group’s most recent annual report, the bank disclosed that it had received multiple subpoenas in 2015 from the Office of Inspector General at the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) related to the servicing of reverse mortgages by Financial Freedom.
CRC’s Gonzalez said that, in light of Mnuchin’s new role in the Trump campaign, “HUD should release more information about its investigation of OneWest’s subsidiary.”
Believe it or not, it gets even more interesting from here. For example, you may be interested to know who one of Mnuchin’s partners was in the IndyMac deal. Yep, you guessed it: George Soros.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
In 2002, Mr. Mnuchin left Goldman and later was hired to run a credit fund set up by billionaire George Soros.
In 2004, Mr. Mnuchin and two former Goldman colleagues founded hedge fund Dune Capital Management LP with financial backing from Mr. Soros. Dune soon expanded into the entertainment business, striking up a film-financing deal with a unit of 21st Century Fox. Among the films Dune financed was “Avatar,” one of the all-time box office hits.
In 2008, IndyMac Bank in Pasadena, Calif., collapsed in one of the largest bank failures in U.S. history. Mr. Mnuchin led a group of investors, including funds run by Mr. Soros and other hedge-fund and private-equity titans, who bought it from the government for about $1.5 billion. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation agreed to cover a portion of any future loan losses, a lucrative arrangement for Mr. Mnuchin and his partners. Regulators who negotiated with Mr. Mnuchin found him to be the kind of detail-oriented person who would “know the cost of every pencil,” according to a person familiar with their thinking.
Considering many diehard Trump supporters consider Soros to be the spawn of Satan, I’m curious to see the intellectual contortions necessary to justify this relationship.
Moving along, the sad thing is none of this is surprising to me. From day one, I felt that Trump was way too cozy with Wall Street, and wouldn’t do a thing to rein in financial sector abuses. I warned about it on several occasions. See:
Draining the Swamp? Wall Street is Already Loving Donald Trump
Donald Trump’s True Colors Emerge as He Snuggles up to Wall Street
A Nation of Sheep, Afraid of Words
In light of this appointment, I want to revisit something I wrote in a recent post:
To conclude, this article is primarily written for all my readers who are either Trump supporters, or who reluctantly voted for him. My message to you is that we need to hold this man’s feet to the fire. The election is over, and you got your desired outcome. Now is not the time to be a cheerleader. Now is not the time to behave exactly like Obama zombies did after he became an obvious betrayal. What allowed Obama to do all the bad things he did, was the fact that his supporters made endless excuses for him. Don’t make excuses for Trump. If you do, your life will get a lot worse and this country will decay far more into an authoritarian oligarchy than it already has. It is up to you to make sure he doesn’t become the Wall Street puppet I always feared he would be.
If you give cover to Trump to appoint swamp creatures to his cabinet, you have no right to criticize Obama for having done the same. Let’s grow up and start rallying around ideas, not cheerleading political figures.

For years, alternative economic analysts have been warning that the “miraculous” rise in U.S. stock markets has been the symptom of wider central bank intervention and that this will result in dire future consequences. We have heard endless lies and rationalizations as to why this could not be so, and why the U.S. “recovery” is real. At the beginning of 2016, the former head of the Dallas branch of the Federal Reserve crushed all the skeptics and vindicated our position in an interview with CNBC where he stated:
“What the Fed did — and I was part of that group — is we front-loaded a tremendous market rally, starting in 2009.It’s sort of what I call the “reverse Whimpy factor” — give me two hamburgers today for one tomorrow. I’m not surprised that almost every index you can look at … was down significantly.” [Referring to the results in the stock market after the Fed raised rates in December.]
Fisher continued his warning (though his predictions in my view are wildly conservative or deliberately muted):
“…I was warning my colleagues, “Don’t go wobbly if we have a 10-20 percent correction at some point. … Everybody you talk to … has been warning that these markets are heavily priced.”
Here is the issue — stocks are a mostly meaningless factor when considering the economic health of a nation. Equities are a casino based on nothing but the luck of the draw when it comes to news headlines, central banker statements and algorithmic computers. Today, as Fischer openly admitted, stocks are a purely manipulated indicator representing nothing but the amount of stimulus central banks are willing to pour into them through various channels.
Even with the incredible monetary support pooled together by international financiers, returns on equities investments continue to remain mostly flat. It would seem that the propping up of indexes like the Dow has been only for the sake of keeping up appearances. For many people, revenue is barely being generated.
Unfortunately, the majority of Americans do not care to educate themselves on the finer points of finance. Their only relation to the health of the economy is their daily glance at the Dow. If it is green, or at all time highs, they assume that all is well, even if their gut is telling them something is not quite right.
The elites that stand at the helm of the Federal Reserve understand this dynamic very well. They are not stupid. They know that the whole of the global economy could be in a shambles but as long as stocks remain positive the masses will continue to ignore reality until the flames of destabilization are at their very doorsteps.
With this fact in mind one might think that the Fed would consider it in their best interest to keep stimulus measures operating indefinitely; but that is not what they are doing.
In fact, the Fed along with other central banks like the ECB has been slowly peeling back pillars of support from markets that have been in place since 2008-2009 and leaving the system open to a crisis event that should have been dealt with years ago. I examined this process of deliberate destabilization in my article ‘The Global Economic Reset Has Begun.’
In that piece I outlined the three major pillars holding up the U.S. market system and certain parts of our economy and how they were being systematically removed. The first pillar was the use of bailouts and quantitative easing measures. These were diminished through the implementation of the Fed “taper,” which I predicted would happen three months prior that year.
The second pillar was the use of near zero interest rates, which allowed numerous banks and corporations to access low-cost and no-cost overnight loans from the Fed. These companies then used these loans in large part to support a never-ending program of stock buybacks, which reduced the stock pool and artificially boosted the values of the remaining stocks. I predicted in August of 2015 that the Fed would hike interest rates and that this would be the beginning of the end for the stock buyback bonanza. The Fed hiked rates in December of that year.
This process of removing backdoor manipulation through low interest rates should be our main concern right now. Early in 2016 I believed that the Fed would reach a position in which it would finally unleash a series of rate hikes. I did not think they would be so blatant as to wait until right after the U.S. presidential election to do so. I was wrong.
This is why I eventually predicted the launch of a series of rate hikes starting right after the election of Donald Trump in my article ‘World Suffers From Trump Shell Shock — Here’s What Will Happen Next.’ The Fed has now once again hiked interest rates with assertions that they will be “accelerating” such hikes throughout 2017.
As I have been arguing for most of the past year, the election of Donald Trump was inevitable and would precede the triggering of the final stage of our ongoing economic crisis. I came to realize that the Fed’s timing of their latest rate hike is highly strategic. Not only does it set the stage for a series of hikes that will crush U.S. stock markets this coming year and finally shock the public out of their fiscal stupor, but it also maneuvers the crisis right into the lap of Donald Trump and the conservative movements that support him.
Beyond this, it perpetuates an increasing Left/Right division in America. Think about it — during a fiscal crisis under Trump, tiggered by accumulating Fed rate hikes, liberals will immediately set upon Trump as the culprit, while conservatives will immediately defend Trump as a victim of Federal Reserve meddling.
The Federal Reserve and the mainstream media are already composing the narrative by stating that Trump’s potential economic policies and a widening budget deficit would REQUIRE higher rates at a faster pace in order to be accommodated.
I have heard arguments from some that this tactic would simply not work. That people would “never buy” a narrative in which Trump and conservatives are blamed for a market collapse that was at least eight years in the making. I have to say, this view is incredibly naive.
I understand why people would want to embrace the notion that the public is as savvy as the liberty movement when looking at economic events, but this simply isn’t reality. A large portion of the U.S. population identifies with the “Left” end of the political spectrum. We have already seen how they react in the face of a Trump election win. They are predisposed to believe that Trump is responsible for a market crash regardless of the facts. Not to mention, much of the rest of the world is economically ignorant and will likely jump on the anti-conservative bandwagon during a crisis as well.
But the real master stroke of this strategy on the part of the elites is that it creates the perfect platform for the destruction of the U.S. dollar’s world reserve status — the third and final pillar I mentioned months ago that is supporting our economic system.
Imagine that the Fed’s rate hike frenzy sparks an open feud between the central bank and Trump? Some people might say “Good! Shut the bastards down!” However, this is exactly what the elites want. With the Fed “at odds” with the president of the U.S., faith in the U.S. dollar will plummet. Its world reserve status will be destroyed. And instead of being blamed on central banks, the majority of people around the world will claim it was the fault of Trump.
With a historically sufficient excuse for the end of dollar dominance in hand, the elites can move forward with their great global reset, which includes the replacement of the dollar with the IMF’s special drawing rights as the go-to reserve currency mechanism. The SDR basket is an essential bridge in the formation of a single global monetary authority and a true single global currency.
I believe that the Fed will not only continue hiking interest rates throughout 2017, but that some of these rate hikes may be LARGER than many people expect (50 basis points or more). I believe this will be designed to foster extreme tensions between the executive branch and the central bank.
A few months ago I would have said that Trump may or “may not” be aware of this dynamic and the potential that he is a scapegoat. Now that I have seen Trump’s cabinet picks which include neo-con and Goldman Sachs alumni, I have little doubt that he is fully cognizant of the plan. I will be writing more on the issue of Trump as a “Trojan horse” in my next article. In the meantime I would point out that all of the elements of psychological support for stock markets will also disappear in the face of a Trump verses establishment narrative.
All those leftist media outlets cherry picking economic stats and telling half truths to support the recovery lie now have no reason to continue cheerleading for the economy. I expect that propaganda rags like Reuters and Bloomberg will quickly change their tune with Trump in the Oval Office and begin a consistent chorus of negative financial data. Not only will the Fed remove all support from the system, but the mainstream media will be pounding day traders with the kind of “doom and gloom” headlines that they have been criticizing us for over the years.
Make no mistake, the election of Trump may have some in the liberty movement ready to pack up their preps and forget about any national crisis in their lifetimes, but the truth is, vigilance is needed now more than ever. I said it before the election and I’ll say it today — do not get comfortable; the times are about to get even more interesting.

The global financial system continues to groan under the strain of the accumulated weight of trillions of dollars worth of debt and derivatives, which have built up to even more fantastic levels than those that precipitated the near collapse in 2008, thanks to the policy of solving liquidity problems near-term by creating even more debt and derivatives, Quantitative Easing being the most obvious example. However, while the majority consider the situation to be hopeless, there is actually “light at the end of the tunnel”.
If only a way could be found to freely tap the funds of savers at will, by imposing duties or taxes on bank accounts, with the additional option to appropriate savers’ funds on occasion as required, then the systemic liquidity problems will be solved. Banks need never fear solvency problems again and they can simply fall back on the account holder’s funds to meet any obligations. There are in fact already names for these restorative operations, they are called “bails-ins” and NIRP (Negative Interest Rate Policy).
Current Prices on popular forms of Gold Bullion
Unfortunately, any immediate attempt to implement bail-ins and NIRP on a large scale will backfire because, faced with being charged significant sums for the privilege of keeping their money in the bank, savers will simply withdraw their funds and keep them as cash at home, or maybe even invest in Precious Metals. It is, therefore, imperative that these escape routes are blocked off.
We have already seen an interesting “trial balloon” in recent years with respect to bails-ins. This was the celebrated Cyprus bail-in. When Cyprus banks were about to go belly-up a couple of years ago, they saved themselves by raiding customers’ accounts, which is more palatably described as a bail-in. The reaction of global savers to this action by the Cyprus banks was one of horror and revulsion and they made it plain that they weren’t going to stand idly by and watch banks plunder their funds – they would withdraw them as cash if any such threat should appear over the horizon. This reaction set the great minds of the banking community to work on how to stop savers withdrawing their funds in the face of these threats. The solution was and is simple – abolish cash! Thus we have seen a production of the 500 Euro note in the European Union stopped so that it gradually fades into oblivion and in the US Larry Summers has proposed the abolition of the $100 bill, which accounts for most of the money in circulation. The idea is to implement the policy for a global cashless society in stages – if it is done all at once the public will revolt. They need to be trained to go cashless and this will take time. By starting with high denomination notes you actually remove most of the currency in circulation at a stroke, but the masses can still buy cigarettes and candy bars at street corner shops with small denomination notes. The excuse given for the removal of the notes is that it impedes organized crime and money laundering etc, which is, of course, a convenient smokescreen.
With plans for a cashless society already well advanced, it was time for another trial balloon. India was selected. Anxious to demonstrate his credentials as a card-carrying member of the New World Order, and oblivious to the effects of the operation on the hapless citizenry of his country, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi went ahead with the withdrawal of two key banknotes. This caused chaos across the country, especially in rural areas where many don’t even have bank accounts, and citizens often had to travel long distances to get to banks to change these banknotes, only to find that the banks had in many cases run out of smaller denomination notes. Despite the economic dislocation and suffering experienced by the masses including some deaths, the experiment was deemed a success by the elites, as they had gotten away with it, with the cowed and impotent citizenry accepting it as their fate – what they should have done is rioted until the measures were withdrawn. Globally, the plan, therefore, is to keep chipping away at it until the cashless society is universally accepted, the only cash likely to remain being small denomination notes and coins suitable for paying street vendors and bus fares etc.
The arrival of the cashless society will not only mean that banks will be able to avail themselves of citizens funds as and when they please, it will also mean that the banks, and by extension, the government, will know all your financial business, what you do and when. Tax evasion will be impossible, and eventually, you will not be able to do business with companies that are not approved of by the government.
With the escape route into cash set to be blocked off, that leaves Precious Metals, gold, and silver, gold as a store of value and silver more for everyday transactions. Gold bugs and others, especially survivalists, and many wealthy investors see this as THE way to escape the rapacious grasp of the banks and the government and are busy squirreling away fortunes into overseas vaults etc. However, it is unfortunate that if you can think of this, so can they, so can the banks and the government, and they have plans for you and your gold hoard. Remember, their power is absolute, no-one dare stands up to them and they can and will do what they like, changing the law as required to suit their purposes. They are much more powerful than President Roosevelt, who in the 1930’s, in an act of naked piracy, seized the gold of US citizens, and furthermore their modern powers of surveillance and tracking are much more sophisticated than anything back then. Thus we can expect governments to declare the holding of gold (and silver) to be illegal and to demand forfeiture to the government in exchange for nominal compensation. Vendors of gold bars will be closed down and mints will not sell retail gold. Unlike the 1930’s this be a be a coordinated global campaign, a kind of witch hunt if you will, and there will be no corner of the world that is safe, just as they finished off private banking in Switzerland. Those buying gold and stashing it in various pseudo-anonymous remote foreign depositories will be in for a nasty shock as these vaults are arbitrarily raided and plundered, with the local and international law being changed as required to facilitate this. Nothing will stand in the way of a system that will not permit alternatives.
We will end on a positive note. No-one really wants to see a complete systemic collapse, which is what will happen if banks don’t avail themselves of savers funds quite soon, least of all the controlling elites at the top of the pyramid who live lives of scarcely imaginable opulence and luxury and wish to continue doing so. Such a collapse would lead to bank accounts being frozen, and a breakdown of the distribution system leading to anarchy and hand-to-hand fighting in the streets for essentials like food and gasoline. Should we not, therefore, be grateful to our illustrious masters who have ingeniously thought of a way out of the current impasse, by availing themselves of your funds as required? Is it not a small price to pay to go cashless and forego your privacy and independence, and forfeit your gold and silver on demand?
It is tempting to blame others for all this, especially those in control of the system, but don’t forget that for decades you voted for people who routinely lied before elections, and told you what you wanted to hear, that you could have it all right now and to hell with the future – well, that future has now arrived.
Ok, so the media, including we who are attempting to warn everyone is painting a scary picture of an inconceivable catastrophe. NOW WHAT? Do we shit or go blind when there is no way to buy products to sustain our lives? May I suggest that IF we lose all ways to barter because we do not have the cash on hand to buy some of everything in sight, like a truck load of food, gas, guns, ammo, generators, shovels, hammers and nails, and a host of other things we will need; that can only mean one thing! We’re shit out of luck, and pretty pissed off at the government. So, while supplies are still available, buy yourself a reloading press and all the assorted tools, primers, powder, case’s, and bullets needed to make your own ammo, because if things are that bad, ammo is going to be the next currency. Need I remind you to buy weapons also, because every swinging dick in America is going to want what you have and not have anything to buy it with. Your elected representatives will be underground and protected by the military, so forget about shooting them. Your friends and family may or may not be trustworthy also! Now don’t you feel better knowing what to do when the crap hits the fan? THE END!

Have you listened to the arguments and accusations about purported Russian spying and hacking –supposedly to interfere in the US elections?
I have taught school all my life. Even as a teenager, I taught Church School.
I’ve taught grade school, middle school and high school students and as a TA in college I have taught adults, too. One of the things that teaching forces you to do, is to learn.
Ironically, you can’t teach anyone else anything without learning things yourself. You are just learning different things than your students.
They are learning to spell or to write coherent sentences or unravel the meaning of statistics or discovering the evidence of electrical current or learning the names of stars.
You are learning how people think and how they react to new information and being tasked to answer questions nobody in your text books bothered to answer.
So, one of the things I have learned and which any decent teacher learns very early on, is to discern when a student is “flibberty-gibbeting”—- trying to escape perdition (or at least a red ink pen) by arguing a non-related non-argument in answer to an actual fact or problem.
The actual fact or problem is that John Podesta’s emails are evidence of filthy crimes and cheating and nastiness beyond belief.
And all Hillary and Obummer want to whine about is how they got caught.
Oh, it was so unfair that criminals and psychopaths and child molesters were exposed—-oh, those terrible, sneaky Russians! Those devious Republicans! Oh, my! Oh, my!
(Don’t pay attention to the evils — the hideous, immoral, venal, corruptions–exposed by the leaked emails.)
(Don’t screw together your logic circuits and say— who cares how this filth was discovered or who discovered it?)
What’s important is that the emails are true, that leading members of the Democratic Party are criminals and pedophiles and deserve to be rounded up and prosecuted.
What they are trying to do now, unsuccessfully, is to argue a technicality in the court of public opinion.
They are trying to say that how they were caught or the identity of those who caught them, is more important than the crimes and acts of immorality they have committed.
And that simply isn’t true.
They are trying to say, without any credible proof, that the Russians were trying to undermine Hillary.
Looks to me like Hillary undermined herself, by participating in this nastiness as a major player and by hiring John Podesta—-failures of both morality and judgment that she can blame on nobody else in the world. Not even Bill.
As for the “Democratic Process” which the Democrats constantly invoke, except for now, when it yielded a result they don’t like—- let me remind everyone on the planet that a democracy requires a mandate of 51% of the population and that all this drama is being fomented by less than 30% of the population on average counting both sides, Republican and Democrat.
Let me also remind everyone that this vaunted presidential election is a private corporate election, not intrinsically different, better, or more important than the election of a new CEO to lead Dairy Queen, International. It has nothing to do with the actual government owed to this country.
When you put all the hype and provably false assumptions aside, there’s nothing here to get excited about. It’s just Situation Normal for the United States which is a filthy little cesspool on our shores, being mismanaged as it always has been by European powers, and which is no more “American” than a goat is a sheep.
So stop being stupid. Be glad that someone, somewhere, made the effort to begin draining the swamp, sucking up the septic, and cleaning up the vomit. It had to be done.
Whether we like it or not, a great deal more of similarly dirty and thankless work has to be done. The entire governmental structure of the planet needs to be flushed and composted and turned into something worthwhile. Who knows? Maybe when it is all said and done, we can grow a rose bush?
