EXCERPT FROM GEORGE WASHINGTON’S 1790 PLAN FOR THE ORGANIZATION OF THE MILITIA
“An energetic national militia is to be regarded as the capital security of a free republic, and not a standing army, forming a distinct class in the community.
By: John L. Perry
President George Washington Structured The Militia System To Prevent Treason And Tyranny By Public Officials!
In this special video presentation for Prison Planet.tv members filmed from the new Infowars television studio, Alex Jones hosts a round table discussion featuring Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes, founder and executive director of the Tenth Amendment Center Michael Boldin, as well as activist and economic writer Brandon Smith of Alt-Market, to discuss the states’ rights movement and how Americans need to organize now to take back power usurped in a myriad of different ways by the federal government.
Rhodes explains how history tells us that tyranny can never be enforced without the aid of uniformed military and police, highlighting the case of East Germany where troops were told to stand down and two days later the Berlin wall fell. Rhodes documents how the implementation of a totalitarian infrastructure in the United States has led to the President having supreme power to assassinate US citizens by declaring them “enemy combatants” and how this sets an ominous benchmark for the level of power that has been accumulated by the executive branch of government. The federal government, the Southern Policy Law Center and the ADL have all targeted Oath Keepers simply because the group attempts to re-affirm commitment to the bill of rights amongst active duty soldiers and law enforcement.

Michael Boldin invokes the words of the founding fathers who warned that federal power would always grow like a cancer unless the American people used the tool of nullification to strike at the root of such tyranny. Nullification is about rendering a particular law null and void, unenforceable within a state, explains Boldin, and it is the duty of American citizens to oversee this process to stymie federal power instantaneously, not wait until after an election or a legal battle. Boldin has led the effort to promote this ideal with the recent Nullify Now tour.
Brandon Smith joins to discuss the recent federal persecution and raid of the makers of the Liberty Dollar, who were labeled as domestic terrorists because they merely challenged the legitimacy of the federal reserve by encouraging Americans to use sound money. Smith talks about the necessity for communities to set up alternative forms of trade and barter in order to drastically reduce their exposure to dollar devaluation that otherwise threatens to completely eviscerate their economic livelihoods.
This video presentation is brimming with solutions on how ordinary American citizens can contribute to a purposeful and achievable move to reclaim their sovereignty, dignity, financial and political freedoms.

Death Toll For United States Military Power: Defense Secretary Gates Excised $178 Billion & Obama To Excise Another $400 Billion ~ Leaving America Naked!
There is a remote, although gaining possibility, America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.
America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:
# Officers swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Unlike enlisted personnel, they do not swear to “obey the orders of the president of the United States.”
# Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.
# They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.
# They can see that the economy — ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation — is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.
# They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.
State’s Constitutional Militias: Sovereign Militias Buy More Firearms In 3 Months, Than What It Takes To Outfit The Entire Chinese And Indian Armies Combined!
# They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America’s troop strength is allowed to sag.
# They can see the horror of major warfare erupting simultaneously in two, and possibly three, far-flung theaters before America can react in time.
# They can see the nation’s safety and their own military establishments and honor placed in jeopardy as never before.
So, if you are one of those observant military professionals, what do you do?
State Militias May Be Implemented To Root Out Obama’s Illegal Muslim Brotherhood: Islamic Terror Training Camps Inside The USA.
Wait until this president bungles into losing the war in Afghanistan, and Pakistan‘s arsenal of nuclear bombs falls into the hands of militant Islam?
Wait until Israel is forced to launch air strikes on Iran’s nuclear-bomb plants, and the Middle East explodes, destabilizing or subjugating the Free World?
What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by this president (who now says, “I’m not interested in victory”) that they will be denied troops they must have to win? Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty? Do they resign en masse?
Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation? Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims?
Anyone who imagines that those thoughts are not weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America’s military leadership is lost in a fool’s fog.
Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?
Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.
Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.
Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.”
In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.

This is starting to become very concerning.
The momentum to “ban cash”, and in particular high denomination notes like the 500 euro and $100 bills, is seriously picking up steam.
On Monday the European Central Bank President emphatically disclosed that he is strongly considering phasing out the 500 euro note.
Yesterday, former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers published an op-ed in the Washington Post about getting rid of the $100 bill.
Prominent economists and banks have joined the refrain and called for an end to cash in recent months.
The reasoning is almost always the same: cash is something that only criminals, terrorists, and tax cheats use.
In his op-ed, Summers refers to a new Harvard research paper entitled: “Making it Harder for the Bad Guys: The Case for Eliminating High Denomination Notes”.
That title pretty much sums up the conventional thinking. And the paper goes on to propose abolishing, among others, 500 euro and $100 bills.
The authors claim that “without being able to use high denomination notes, those engaged in illicit activities – the ‘bad guys’ of our title – would face higher costs and greater risks of detection. Eliminating high denomination notes would disrupt their ‘business models’.”
Personally I find this comical.
I can just imagine a bunch of bureaucrats and policy wonks sitting in a room pretending to know anything about criminal activity.
It’s total nonsense. As long as there has been human civilization there has been crime. Crime pre-dates cash. And it will exist long after they attempt to ban it.
Perhaps even more hilarious is that many of these bankrupt governments have become so desperate for economic growth that they now count illegal drug activity and prostitution in their GDP calculations, both of which are typically transacted in cash.
So, ironically, by banning cash these governments will end up reducing their own GDP figures.
What’s really behind this? Why is there such a big movement to ban something that is used for felonious purposes by just a fraction of a percent of the population?
Cash, it turns out, is the Achilles’ Heel of the financial system.
Central banks around the world have kept interest rates at near-zero levels for nearly eight years now.
And despite having created massive bubbles and enabled extraordinary amounts of debt, their policies aren’t working.
Especially in Europe, the hope of stoking economic growth (and even the sickening goal of inflation) has failed.
So naturally, since what they’ve been trying hasn’t worked, their response is to continue trying the same thing… and more of it.
Interest rates across the European continent are now negative.
Japanese interest rates are now negative.
And even in the United States, the Federal Reserve has acknowledged that negative interest rates are being considered.
They have no other choice; raising rates will bankrupt the governments they support and derail any fledgling economic growth.
Look at how low interest rates are in the US– and yet 4th quarter GDP practically ground to a halt. They simply cannot afford to raise rates.
As global economic weakness continues to play out, central banks will have no other option but to take interest rates even further into negative territory.
That said, negative interest rates will be the destruction of the financial system.
Because sooner or later, if banks have to pay negative wholesale interest rates to each other and to the central bank, then eventually they’ll have to pass those negative rates on to their customers.
Many banks have already started doing this, especially on larger depositors.
We’ve seen this in Europe where some banks charge their customers negative interest to save money, and in some extraordinary circumstances, pay other customers to borrow money.
It’s total madness.
There’s a certain point, however, when interest rates become so negative that no rational person would hold money in the banking system.
Eventually people will realize that they’re better off withdrawing their money and holding physical cash.
Sure, cash doesn’t pay any interest. But it doesn’t cost any either.
If you have a $200,000 in your savings account at negative 1%, you’d have to pay the bank $2,000 each year.
Clearly it would make more sense to buy a safe and hold most of that money in cash.
Problem is, the banks don’t have the money.
For starters, there’s literally not enough cash in the entire financial system to pay out more than a fraction of all bank deposits.
More importantly, banks (especially in the US and Europe) are extremely illiquid.
They invest the vast majority of your deposit in illiquid loans or securities of dubious long-term value, whatever the latest stupid investment fad happens to be.
And many banks have been engaging in a substantial balance sheet shift, rotating bonds from what’s called “Available for Sale” to “Hold to Maturity”.
This is an accounting trick used to hide losses in their bond portfolios. But it also means they have less liquidity available to support bank customer withdrawal requests.
The natural side effect of negative interest rates is pushing people to hold money outside of the banking system.
Yet it’s clear that a surge of withdrawal requests would bring down that system.
Banks don’t want that to happen. Governments don’t want that to happen.
But since central banks have no other choice than to continue imposing negative interest rates, the only logical option is to ban cash and force consumers to hold their money within the banking system.
Make no mistake, this is absolutely a form of capital controls. And it’s coming soon to a banking system near you.
Clearly a trend with this much momentum requires some deliberate and measured action if you don’t want your savings trapped.
We’ll discuss this in our upcoming webinar.
I hate to belabor the point, but it should be obvious that these things are happening, quickly, and I can promise that you’ll get a ton of great information and solutions with the small investment of your time.

Senior officials with the U.S. Department of Justice recently announced possible legal changes which could allow the government greater room to combat so-called “anti-government extremists”.
On Thursday February 4, Reuters reported that John Carlin, the Justice Department’s chief of national security, and federal prosecutors are looking for new tools to deal with the rise of “domestic extremists.”
“Based on recent reports and the cases we are seeing, it seems like we’re in a heightened environment,” Carlin told Reuters. Reuters notes that the U.S. government is facing an increase in opposition from militia groups, “sovereign citizens,” and other “anti-government extremists.”
However, federal officials like Carlin claim they are impeded in their pursuit of violent domestic terrorists because, although there is currently a U.S. law that prohibits “material” support of internationally recognized terror groups, there is not such a law for domestic groups. Reuters reports:
Carlin and other Justice Department officials declined to say if they would ask Congress for a comparable domestic extremist statute, or comment on what other changes they might pursue to toughen the fight against anti-government extremists.
The U.S. State Department designates international terrorist organizations to which it is illegal to provide “material support.” No domestic groups have that designation, helping to create a disparity in charges faced by international extremist suspects compared to domestic ones.
Carlin told Reuters that his counter-terrorism team is taking a “thoughtful look at the nature and scope of the domestic terrorism threat” and looking for “potential legal improvements and enhancements to better combat those threats.” The Justice Department will identify cases being prosecuted at the state level that “could arguably meet the federal definition of domestic terrorism.”
Carlin and his team are not only remaining quiet about whether or not they are pursuing the legal changes but the entire team has not been revealed to the public. This means we have an unelected, secret team of people working on identifying which Americans should be deemed “domestic extremists.”
Will Freedom Activists be Targeted?
Carlin’s silence should alarm all activists who consider themselves opposed to the policies of the U.S. government. Not only are those who espouse anti-government or pro-freedom rhetoric likely to be targeted but the penalty for being a part of such a group, or supporting such a group could eventually mean years in prison. Current laws allow for a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for Americans who support groups on the State Department list of designated terrorist organizations.
Under a 1994 law federal prosecutors could attempt to bring “material support” terrorism charges against people who are linked to groups not on the State Department’s list but this has only happened twice since the law was enacted. If the Justice Department creates a list of groups that are deemed extremist or terrorist this could lead to stifling of free speech and expression.
Part of the problem is the broad definition of “extremism” itself. As far as the pursuit and defense against “extremism” is concerned, the United States government has failed to adequately define the term, and by doing so, is allowing for perfectly legal behavior to become taboo or even criminalized. In June 2014, TruthInMedia’s Jay Syrmopouloswrote about this trend:
First there was the MIAC report, which claimed that potential terrorists include people who own gold, Ron Paul supporters, libertarians, and even people who fly the U.S. flag.
Then in 2012, there was a leaked Homeland Security study that claimed Americans who are ‘reverent of individual liberty,’ and ‘suspicious of centralized federal authority’ are possible ‘extreme right-wing’ terrorists.
More recently, there is a Department of Defense training manual, obtained by Judicial Watch via a FOIA request, that lists people who embrace “individual liberties” and honor “states’ rights,” among other characteristics, as potential “extremists” who are likely to be members of “hate groups.”
This document goes on to call the Founding Fathers extremists, stating, “In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements,“ including “[t]he colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule.”
If the United States government cannot clearly define who it is targeting in its war on extremism how are the people supposed to trust that these programs will not simply be used to target outspoken activists and critics of the government?
A Domestic War on “Extremism”?
These possible legal changes are only the latest effort to combat “extremism” by the Justice Department. In October 2015 Anti Media reported that the United Nations and the Department of Justice announced the creation of a new program designed to help local communities combat “violent extremism.” Called the Strong Cities Network (SCN), the plan calls for “systematic efforts” to “share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale.”
U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch said, “The Strong Cities Network will serve as a vital tool to strengthen capacity-building and improve collaboration, ”and will “enable cities to learn from one another, to develop best practices and to build social cohesion and community resilience here at home and around the world.”
“To counter violent extremism we need determined action at all levels of governance,” said Governing Mayor Stian Berger Røsland of Oslo. “To succeed, we must coordinate our efforts and cooperate across borders.”
The creation of the Smart Cities Network comes after the Justice Department announced it would revive a task force on domestic terrorism in an attempt to stop violence within the United States. In June 2014, former Attorney General Eric Holder stated the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee would work to eliminate dangers from violent individuals who may be motivated by anti-government or racist views. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Security Division of the Justice Department, and the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee are in charge of the efforts. The committee was originally launched to focus on right-wing extremism in the aftermath of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
As Americans slowly awaken to the truth of the American Empire, the powers that wish they were are scrambling to tighten their control grid. If the American public will not be subdued and distracted by elections or dead-stream media bread and circuses, the Ruling Class will have to resort to more direct methods of stifling freedom. This presents the perfect opportunity for those living amongst the zombies to organize and strategize for solutions that do not rely on government or their corporate partners.

Well! According to that, I am some kind of security threat, and believe me if I was forty years younger I would prove them right! However, I support my right to have any fucking kind of opinion that I want, about an Illegal government especially. And even if it was a legal government I would still oppose these ass-holes on general principal. How many of these son-of-bitches do you think are not making a damn fortune selling out to big business? How many of them are supporting our Original Constitution? How many of them are screwing little children, or poking little boy’s in the butt? How many of them are manipulating less powerful business by threats of tyrannical laws? I could go on and on till hell freezes over and never come close to the debauchery of these bastards. TERRIOST, HELL YES I’M A TERRIOST! Because if I could I would send every one of them to hell, begging to stay there!

On Wednesday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced at the United Nations that her office would be working in several American cities to form what she called the Strong Cities Network (SCN), a law enforcement initiative that would encompass the globe.
This amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws, up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself – without any consultation of Congress at all.
The United Nations is a sharia-compliant world body, and Obama, speaking there just days ago, insisted that “violent extremism” is not exclusive to Islam (which it is). Obama is redefining jihad terror to include everyone but the jihadists. So will the UN, driven largely by the sharia-enforcing Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the pro-Islamic post-American
President Obama, use a “global police force” to crush counter-jihad forces?
After all, with Obama knowingly aiding al-Qaeda forces in Syria, how likely is it that he will use his “global police force” against actual Islamic jihadists? I suspect that instead, this global police force will be used to impose the blasphemy laws under the sharia (Islamic law), and to silence all criticism of Islam for the President who proclaimed that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
What is a global police force doing in our cities? This is exactly the abdication of American sovereignty that I warned about in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America. The Obama Department of Justice made it clear that it was exactly that when it distributed a press release last week announcing the “Launch of Strong Cities Network to Strengthen Community Resilience Against Violent Extremism.” In that press release, the DoJ complained that “while many cities and local authorities are developing innovative responses to address this challenge, no systematic efforts are in place to share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale.”
So if the local and municipal effort to counter the euphemistic and disingenuous “violent extremism” is inadequate and hasn’t developed “systematic efforts are in place to share experiences, pool resources and build a community of cities to inspire local action on a global scale,” the feds – and the UN – have to step in. Thus the groundwork is being laid for federal and international interference down to the local level. “The Strong Cities Network,” Lynch declared, “will serve as a vital tool to strengthen capacity-building and improve collaboration” – i.e., local dependence on federal and international authorities.
Lynch made the global (that is, United Nations) involvement clear when she added: “As we continue to counter a range of domestic and global terror threats, this innovative platform will enable cities to learn from one another, to develop best practices and to build social cohesion and community resilience here at home and around the world.”
This internationalist character was brought to the fore by the fact that the Strong Cities Network was launched on September 29 not at the White House or the Department of Homeland Security, or at the FBI headquarters or anywhere else that might be fitting for a national project, but at the United Nations.
Even more ominously, the DoJ press release says that the Strong Cities Network “will strengthen strategic planning and practices to address violent extremism in all its forms by fostering collaboration among cities, municipalities and other sub-national authorities.” Sub-national and international: the press release then quotes Governing Mayor Stian Berger Røsland of Oslo, Norway, a participant in the Strong Cities Network, saying: “To counter violent extremism we need determined action at all levels of governance. To succeed, we must coordinate our efforts and cooperate across borders. The Strong Cities Network will enable cities across the globe pool our resources, knowledge and best practices together and thus leave us standing stronger in the fight against one of the greatest threats to modern society.”
But what is that greatest threat, exactly? Remember, the DoJ presser says that the SCN will “address violent extremism in all its forms.” It also says that it will aid initiatives that are working toward “building social cohesion and resilience to violent extremism.” “Building social cohesion” is a euphemism for keeping peace between non-Muslim and Muslim communities – mostly by making sure that non-Muslims don’t complain too loudly about, much less work against, rapidly expanding Muslim populations and the Islamization of their communities.
The DoJ presser noted that at the launch of the Strong Cities Network, “welcoming remarks” would be offered by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein and Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City. The involvement of New York City’s Marxist internationalist mayor is yet another warning sign.
Assert American sovereignty and individual rights. Contact your representatives now. Exhort them to oppose SCN now. Exhort them to keep America free – while it still is.

Why Buying Gold Won’t Save You from the Zombie Apocalypse … Despite any advice you might have heard to the contrary, gold bullion is far from a good investment, even if the world is coming to an end. The idea of having a hedge against the end of the world and the collapse of our financial institutions might be alluring. But actually, buying and storing significant amounts of gold bullion won’t do you any good in that unlikely event, despite any advice you might have heard to the contrary. – Fool.com
Of course the above excerpt is brought to us by the Motley Fool, one of the bigger mainstream investment web destinations. The description is entirely predictable and could have found a home at Bloomberg, CNN or even CNBC. Gold is always to be portrayed as a Keynesian “barbaric relic.”
In fact, we learn later in the description that there are specific assets you should own “in the event of an apocalypse.” Gold is not one of them.
The featured expert, John Maxfield, has a thing or two to say about gold.
“Here’s how I think about gold, and this is how I would recommend that investors think about gold, or anyone who’s thinking about buying gold for any type of investing purposes. As a general rule, investing in gold is a bad idea, and here’s why.
“When you invest, your biggest ally is compound returns, because that grows the size of your returns without you doing anything on an annual basis, and pretty soon, your small returns of 1% or 2% a year turn into 50%, 60% a year on your original basis. But in order to tap into compound returns, you’ve got to be invested into an income-earning asset. And the problem with gold is it doesn’t own any assets.”
Maxfield does grant that gold is a “hedge against anarchy” but says if society is really collapsing, you probably want to stock up on medicine and antibiotics rather than gold.
Ironically, another anti-gold epicenter – Reuters – provides us with a rebuttal to the Fool. In a post just today entitled, “Central banks and Chinese buyers helping to spur gold demand,” Reuters is uncharacteristically upbeat about the yellow metal’s prospects going forward.
Buying by central banks as well as Chinese investors seeking protection from a weakening currency helped lift demand for gold in the final quarter of last year and the trend looks set to continue, the World Gold Council said …
China remained the world’s biggest consumer of gold last year, ahead of India, with economic headwinds influencing purchasing, the WGC said in its annual “Gold Demand Trends” report. The WGC’s members include the world’s leading gold mining companies. Chinese demand for gold coins surged 25 percent in the fourth quarter from a year earlier as consumers sought to protect their wealth after Beijing devalued the yuan currency.
It’s not just physical gold. Miners are up and silver is up, too. Oddly enough, it is central banks that have been leading the charge toward gold.
Reuters: “Central banks have been buying gold to diversify their reserves away from the U.S. dollar and their purchases edged up to 588.4 tonnes last year, second only to a record high 625.5 tonnes in 2013.”
Turmoil in the markets, falling oil prices and a potential global recession have all contributed to a positive precious metals outlook, according to WGC.
Well …We agree about gold – we can see and sense the resurgence of the price against the dollar – but we disagree that the world is going back into a recession. In fact, we think the world is in a kind of greater depression and that the golden bull goes all the way back to the early 2000s after the dotcom bust. But let’s go back even farther.
Central bank business cycles are manufactured ones and if you really want to make sense of where we are today, you have to start after World War II when the global economy was “reset.”
The paraphernalia of the modern world was created after World War II, including the IMF, the World Bank and the United Nations. The Bank for International Settlements was rejiggered as well.
The later 1940s were a time of gathering energy and then the ’50s and the ’60s were explosively “prosperous” in the US and even the West. There were many books written about the “miracle” of the US economy and the superior model of US capitalism itself.
We’ve called this period in the US – and the West – “dreamtime.”
That’s because a good deal of the prosperity was due to money printing and other kinds of financial manipulation. In 1971, when France attempted to take delivery of the gold it was owed, the US promptly went off the gold standard and Nixon created the petrodollar.
The 1970s reverberated with the monetary sins of the previous decade. Keynesians discovered “stagflation,” which wasn’t supposed to exist. And as price inflation rose, so did middle-class anxiety.
Enter Paul Volcker, David Rockefeller’s right-hand man. Early in the 1980s, Volcker did what most thought was impossible. He raised rates near 20 percent and froze the dollar in its tracks. Banks foundered and another Great Depression loomed. But instead, the economy recovered.
Post-Volcker, the next great Paper Bull arose. Wall Street shone and securitization boomed. For another 20 years, through 2000, the Paper Bull roared. But that was the end of it.
The dotcom crash definitively crumpled the Paper Bull. Gold began an unstoppable rise that culminated at the end of the decade near US$2,000.
Of course, most believed we were in “another” recession by then, post-2008. But really it was just a continuation of what was begun in 2001.
Everything else is just a manipulation.
Bernanke screwed rates down to a point where he created a faux recovery in the mid-2000s. But it didn’t last because it couldn’t.
The great gold plunge was likely a manipulated one, further confusing people’s perceptions of what was really going on.
Today, people speak confusedly about a “recession” and the “recovery” of gold.
In truth, the “recession” began in the early-2000s and is more of a “greater depression.”
The “recovery” of gold well may be simply the reassertion of reality.
Gold will return to where it should be against the dollar – at US$2,000 or more. Some say the dollar should be trading against gold at US$5,000.
From our perspective, this makes what’s going on now a good deal clearer – along with the inevitable results.
There have been two great Paper Bull runs in the 20th century. And now in the 21st, the Golden Bull dominates.
In fact, this is the reason for so much unease in the financial community. The Golden Bull is rampant and they know it.
The Golden Bull probably will not be turned aside again. Make your plans accordingly.

Written by Paul Rosenberg
Over the last few months a stream of articles have crossed my screen, all proclaiming the need of governments and banks to eliminate cash. I’m sure you’ve noticed them too.
It is terrorists and other assorted madmen, we are told, who use cash. And so, to protect us from being blown up and dismembered on our very own street corners, governments will have to ban it.
It would actually take some effort to imagine a more obvious, naked attempt at fearmongering. Cash – in daily use for centuries if not millennia – is now, suddenly, the agent of spring-loaded, instant death? And we’re supposed to just accept that line?
But there are good reasons why the insiders are promoting these stories now. The first of them, perhaps, is simply that they can: After 9/11, a massive wave of compliance surged through the West. It may not last forever, but it’s still rolling, and if the entertainment corporations can pump enough fear into minds that want to believe, they may just get them to buy it.
The second reason, however, is the real driver:
Negative Interest Rates
The urgency of their move to ban one of the longest-lasting pillars of daily life means that the backroom elites think it will be necessary soon. It would appear that the central banks, the IMF, the World Bank, the BIS, and all their backers, see the elimination of cash as a central survival strategy.
The reason is simple: cash would allow people to escape from the one thing that could save their larcenous currency system: negative interest rates.
To make this clear, I like to paraphrase a famous (and good) quote from Alan Greenspan, back from 1966, during his Ayn Randian days: The financial policy of the welfare state requires that there be no way for the owners of wealth to protect themselves.
That was a true statement, and with a slight modification, it succinctly explains the new war on cash:
The preservation of an insolvent currency system requires that the owners of currency have no way to protect it.
Cash is currency that you hold in your own hands, that stands more or less alone. It is primarily external to bank control. Electronic money – bank balances, credit, etc. – remains inside the banking system and fully “subject to bank control”!
A combination of no cash and negative interest rates would be a quiet, permanent version of what was done in Cyprus, where the government simply shut down everything, allowed only the smallest deductions via ATMs, and then stole money from thousands of bank accounts at once.
The Cypriot spectacle was fairly large, however, and that tends to undermine the legitimacy of rulership. So, it is much better to have no ATMs and no cash at all. There would be no lines of angry people talking to each other, only isolated losers with no recourse, licking their wounds while the talking heads on television tell them to stay calm and watch the flashing images.
Negative interest rates would give the banks 100% control over your purchases. They could, even in the worst pinch, allow you to purchase food while freezing the rest of your money. The average person would have no recourse and would simply be robbed… but very smoothly and with no human face to blame it on.
Negative interest rates mean that your bank account shrinks day by day, automatically. Your $1000 in January becomes $950 by December. And where does that money go? To the banks, of course, and to the government. They siphon your money away, drip by drip, and there’s nothing you can do about it. This accomplishes several things for them at once:
It finances government, limit-lessly and automatically. Forget tax filings; they can just take as they please.
It pays off the bad debt of the big banks. (And there are oceans of debt.)
It forces you to spend everything you’ve got, as soon as you get it. (Otherwise it will shrink.)
It gives the system full control over your financial life. Everything is monitored, everything is tracked, and every single transaction must be approved by them (or not). If they decide they don’t like you, you’re instantly reduced to begging.
In short, this is a direct return to serfdom.
I suggest that you start talking to your friends and neighbors about this now, before it’s too late. Don’t let them comply without a fight.

According to the original intent of our Constitution, Ted Cruz & Marco Rubio are not eligible to be President because their fathers weren’t US citizens at the times they were born. So they are not “natural born citizens”.
So! How is this handled? Who calls it? Who makes the ruling? Do we “file a lawsuit” and let federal judges decide? “Slap your hands!”, our Framers would say. They would say, “READ THE CONSTITUTION AND SEE WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!”
[Our lives would be so much simpler – and our Country so much better off – if we read & supported our Constitution.]
Read the 12th Amendment. That sets forth the procedures for election of President and VP. Note that ELECTORS are supposed to be the ones making the selection – NOT THE PEOPLE. [There is a reason for that.] For an illustration of how this works, go HERE and read the subheadings, “Electors” Appointed by States Were To Choose The President! and The 12th Amendment Establishes Procedures For Voting By Electors.
So! Assume we followed the Constitution on this issue and we get to the part where Congress is counting the votes as provided by 12th Amendment. And Lo! Congress discovers that the person who got the most votes for President is NOT QUALIFIED by reason of age, or not being a natural born citizen, or not having been for at least 14 years a Resident within the United States.
Obviously, it’s Congress’ job to make the ruling – to make the call – on whether the President and VP – selected by the ELECTORS – are qualified under Art. II, Sec. 1, clause 5.
So what happens if Congress finds that the person with the most votes for President is not qualified? We look to Sec. 3 of the 20th Amendment. It tells us what happens. If the President elect has failed to qualify, then the VP elect shall act as President… Now, read the rest of that Section. We would also need to see whether Congress has made any of the authorized laws providing for such contingencies.
So, under the Constitution as written, it is Congress’ job to make the call as to whether the President elect and the VP elect are qualified.
THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE FOR THE FEDERAL COURTS TO DECIDE. That is because this is a “political question” – not a “legal question”. The power to make the ruling as to whether the president elect or the VP elect are qualified has been delegated to CONGRESS. Traditionally, federal courts have “abstained” from deciding “political questions”.
We study this in our first year constitutional law class, when we study judicial “abstention” from certain kinds of cases including cases which involve “political questions” or the exercise of powers delegated to the Legislative or Executive branches. When a power is delegated to one of the “political branches” (Legislative or Executive), the federal courts (the “legal branch”) have traditionally declined to interfere and substitute their judgment for that of the “political branch” to which the Power was delegated.
And what if Congress gives an ineligible person a pass – as they did with obama? WELL THEN, SHAME ON US –
BECAUSE WE ARE THE ONES WHO ELECTED THOSE IGNORANT COWARDS TO OFFICE!
I Sure would love to lock Publius Huldah and Judge Anna Maria Riezinger in the same room and find out what they believed when they were let out. Most certainly they are both highly intelligent scholars, but they obviously have some different opinions on American governance. My preference would be for them both to unite on Anna’s research. Maybe then the ignorant sheeple would understand they have been beguiled from the cradle and are not qualified to be American’s. AMERICA HAS BEEN UNDER THE RULE OF THE INTERNATIONAL BANKING CARTEL FROM THE GET GO, AND IT IS “NOT A DEMOCRACY”! IT’S A CORPORATION! THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION IS ONLY USED TO KEEP US CONFUSED WHEN IT SUITS THEM. THE CORPORATE BY-LAWS ARE THE CORPORATIONS CONSTITUTION.
WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA!

By Ms. RoseAnn Salanitri
December 17, 2015-TPATH- Regardless of which presidential candidate you support, it is highly unlikely that any one of them will be able to turn back the pages of time to when America was a shining city on a hill. Many believe that our plummet from nobility is multi-faceted and cannot be laid squarely at any one person’s feet or attributed to any one cause. That opinion may not be accurate.
Our Founding Fathers created a form of government that would guide us through a myriad of challenges. They did not do so lightly. They researched. They argued. They debated and they agonized over every aspect of our Constitution, fully understanding the final draft’s attributes and loopholes. For more than a century and a half, the system worked – even through the Civil War and the immoral challenges of slavery. The ability of the Constitution to be amended was significant and our humble Founders understood that significance. They also understood that this significant attribute could also lead to our national demise. Had they been prophets, they would have also foreseen the damage progressive thinking would have on our way of life and the liberties we hold so dear. Prophecy aside, they did understand that the survival of these United States was dependant on a moral and religious people.
In October of 1798 in an address to General Walker, John Adams is quoted as saying: “…Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Adams knew what he said and why he said it. It is unfortunate that only this segment of his speech is quoted. Its entirety speaks volumes to the primary cause responsible for our impending national doom.
Therefore, as we ponder how to “Make America Great Again,” perhaps we should be looking to the wisdom of one of our most passionate founders and not to any modern day political figure. Adams not only stated clearly that morality and religion were foundational principles of our Constitution, he also stated why. Below are segments of that speech that apply directly to us today.
…But should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foreign nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation while it is practising (sic) iniquity and extravagance…in the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candor, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting in rapine and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the New World; because we have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other… (Emphasis added)
Adams may not have known Obama, or One World Order people, or our feckless representatives personally, but he certainly knew about the character traits they imbue. He understood that a government that sought to protect personal liberty could not do that if its citizens were not capable of governing themselves on a personal basis. No, Adams was not a prophet. However, his understanding of human nature and its effects on government can be considered prophetic.
As intuitive as Adams may have been, even he did not foresee a movement that would initialize a stronghold on the very notion of Providence and its God – a movement that would be A-religious and consequently A-moral. Arguably, Charles Darwin was as influential as Christ Himself on succeeding cultures and governments. Darwinism clearly gives license to those wishing to become their own gods, since the real God and His precepts and principles are removed from their belief system. The American Progressive/Regressive Movement is the best example of a philosophy based on Darwinism that is changing our country.
And like its predecessor millennia ago in the Garden of Eden, these modern day Adams and Eves that embrace evolution believe they can create their own morality and consequently their own version of truth. It’s really the same old apple. In reality, their logic is not flawed. If God isn’t the creator, either He is a liar or He doesn’t exist. If the latter is true, then the progressive/regressives would be correct. Absolute truth would not exist, and therefore subjective truth reigns. They fail to realize that if truth is not absolute, it is not truth at all but merely opinion. In addition to just being plain wrong, the problem is that their subjective application has filled our prisons, destroyed our system of government, and perverted our children. It has perverted the very principle of freedom of religion into freedom from religion and in so doing has slowly been corrupting our moral foundation. As the Bible states: “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3.
Barack Obama, our present day progressive/regressive icon, was not the first narcissist to embrace racism. Hitler, Stalin and Mao beat him to the punch – all evolutionists that believed they could set their own standards based on their subjective truths. We know these names and the horrors they committed unbridled by absolute truth or righteousness that respects life; however, there were still others before them. All were charismatic and passionate speakers. These tyrants capitalized on a misinformed and misguided populace that had no standard to judge their rhetoric by. And there is no absolute standard except for the Word of God, which is systematically being removed from the public conscience under the guise of freedom of religion. Under these conditions, it should be no surprise that we, as a nation, have fallen with such force and such speed. Adams’ statement that our government was made for a moral and religious people should be echoing throughout our collective national soul. Banishing God has not led to a Utopian way of life. It never has and it never will. So whether our national demise is multi-faceted or not, its cause is singular: we are fast becoming a Godless nation – unfortunately proving Adams correct.
So while we debate which political party is better or which presidential candidate can restore America to greatness, the wise among us will be standing on their knees and waiving the banner of truth and truth’s one and only God. If America repents, and if America turns from legalizing immorality and justifying infanticide among other things, then and only then does America have a chance of restoring its greatness. And to be sure, greatness cannot be restored to us by any man except the man Jesus Christ. While Christ may not be running for the presidency, let’s once again elect Him as our one and only king, as they did at the time of the Revolutionary War. If you are so inclined, I encourage you to join with me in coining a new, but old cry:
No King but Jesus; No Sovereign but God.
Simple words but they carry the greatest hope for a dying nation.

I am not a legal counsel for the General (Dunford). We are all working on reclaiming American assets for Americans. For right now, it’s improper to call what we are doing a “New Republic”— that will require a public education process, each one making their political status (citizenship, etc.) choices, the election of Fiduciary Deputies from each State to attend a Continental Congress to either amend or abolish the existing actual Constitution.
For now, we have saved The Constitution for the united States of America. The rats sought to “vacate” the contract by entering the UNITED STATES, INC. into bankruptcy without naming a successor to contract. That left the “federal” side of the contract vacant and flapping in the wind. We formed an agreement with the American Native Nations — the Athabasca and Lakota– to fulfill the federal side. We issued two sets of Sovereign Letters Patent, one to reaffirm the united States of America, and one to establish a new arrangement with the Native people to bring them out of their POW status and incarceration in the Jurisdiction of the Sea and put them back on the land as free, sovereign, and independent people. We then sealed this arrangement with a Declaration of Joint Sovereignty, spelling out the intent of our actions.
These actions were sent by Registered Mail to the Pope, the Queen, the UN Security Council, the United Nations Secretary General and others.
For the first time since the original Constitution was adopted, the federal side of the contract is now in the hands of Americans devoted to America— not British (Federal Reserve) or French (IMF) interlopers. For the first time, the Federal Agents have a vested interest in truly and honestly protecting America and Americans, because if they hurt or plunder us, they hurt and plunder themselves.
And now we are all going after the assets that are owed to Americans which have been purloined by international banks and the “governmental services corporations” they have run as storefronts —under conditions of gross fraud and deceit.
Please note there is no “statute of limitation” on the crime of fraud, much less malicious fraud tort claims.

The Government is Weaning Us Off of Cash

Spending just five minutes on http://www.annavonreitz.com/ should convince you that America can still be saved, IF you will get off your ass and get involved by spreading her work to everyone you can. Consider what we could do if one hundred million Americans were involved in promoting her work. Now, what’s your excuse?
(I don’t have time!) DUH! I’ve heard that so many times I could puke!
Do you honestly believe that our lives’ are not as chaotic as yours? I would love to go down to my pistol range and spend the whole day there, every day! Besides shooting a thousand rounds; there are hundreds of target configurations I would love to try out, which means real hard labor moving steel plate stands around. BUT I DON’T!
Because if I sit on my fanny or play all day I will not have fulfilled my obligation to destroy tyranny where-ever I find it.
Remember, our children are going to pay for our laziness.
(I would lose all my friends!) Hea, if they get mad tell them to go piss up a rope. They are not Americans. They are useless eaters. They sponge off the labor of Patriots who are involved in preserving freedom.
(I’m afraid of the federal cops throwing me in jail and stealing my children.) What the hell do you think we are doing this for? Taking your children is not half as bad as Big Uncle making socialist out of them.
Let me make a suggestion. Pick up a copy of this book; PUTIN’S KLEPTOCRACY by Karen Dawisha……..READ IT, and consider what it’s like to live in Russia, then consider how stupid it is to allow our government to be like theirs. If that doesn’t get your attention and make you resolve to help spread the word, then nothing can save you from it.
If you refuse to take any advice from me, below is a warning from a much more qualified man you might want to read.
Even before his coronation in 1626, King Charles I of England was heavily in debt.
His predecessors King James and Queen Elizabeth had run the royal treasury down to almost nothing.
Costly war and military folly had taken its toll. The crown had simply wasted far too much money, and taken in too little.
To make matters worse, King Charles was constantly at odds with parliament.
The English government was completely dysfunctional, with constant bickering, personal attacks, and very little sound decision-making.
Parliament refused to pass the taxes that Charles needed to make ends meet. But at the same time, the King was legally unable to levy his own taxes without parliamentary approval.
So, faced with financial desperation, he began to look for alternative ways to raise revenue.
One way was relying on practically ancient, obscure laws that still existed on the books.
The Distraint of Knighthood, for example, was based on an act from 1278, roughly three and a half centuries before Charles’ coronation.
The Act gave him the legal authority to fine all men with a minimum level of income who did not present themselves in person at his coronation.
Charles also commandeered vast amounts of land, restoring the boundaries of the royal forests to where they had been during the time of King Edward I in the 13th century.
He then fined anyone who encroached on the land, and resold much of it to industries that were supportive of his reign.
King Charles even resorted to begging; in July 1626, he requested that his subjects “lovingly, freely, and voluntarily” give him money.
When that didn’t work, the King levied a Forced Loan in September of that year, effectively confiscating people’s funds under the guise of ‘borrowing’ it.
He raised about £250,000, the equivalent of about $7.5 billion today.
Emboldened by his success, Charles eventually began to seize assets directly, including all the gold on deposit being held at the Royal Mint– money that belonged to the merchants and goldsmiths of England.
At one point Charles even forced the East India Company to ‘loan’ him their pepper and spice inventory for £63,283. He subsequently sold everything in the market at a steep loss.
If any of this sounds familiar, it should.
Today there is no shortage of nations that are facing fiscal desperation. Most of Europe. Japan, & The United States.
In the Land of the Free, the government has spent years… decades… engaged in the most wasteful folly, from multi-trillion dollar wars to a multi-billion dollar website that doesn’t work.
US debt just hit $19 trillion a few days ago. And it’s only going higher.
We can already see the depths of the government’s financial desperation.
Over the years, the government has effectively levied a ‘forced loan’ totaling more than $2.6 trillion on the Social Security Trust Fund, whose ultimate beneficiaries are the taxpayers of the United States.
Last year the government stole more from Americans through ‘Civil Asset Forfeiture’ than all the thieves in the United States combined.
On December 31, 2015, the US government confiscated $19.3 billion in capital from the Federal Reserve, which, by the way, was already very thinly capitalized.
The government published over 80,000 pages of laws, bills, rules, regulations, and executive orders last year. Just this morning they published another 308 pages.
It’s impossible for anyone to keep up with all of these rules. And yet each of these can carry civil, criminal, and monetary penalties, including a fine now for not having health insurance.
As Mark Twain used to say, history may not repeat, but it certainly rhymes.
Financially insolvent governments of major superpowers do not simply go gentle into that good night.
They don’t suddenly turn over a new leaf and start embracing economic freedom.
No. They get worse. More desperate. More destructive.
Should we honestly believe that the government can continue to indebt itself indefinitely without consequence, as if the largest accumulation of debt that has ever existed in the history of the world is somehow consequence-free?
At some point, fiscal reality always catches up. Maybe not at $19 trillion. Maybe not even at $20 trillion.
Maybe it takes 3 months. Or 3 years. But somewhere out there is a straw that can break the camel’s back.
Never forget that if something is predictable, then it’s also preventable.
And facing such obvious trends, it makes all the sense in the world to take some simple, rational steps to put together your own Plan B.
PS: In the upcoming weeks I will be holding a free webcast discussing the most important tools and tactics that are necessary in creating a Plan B. You can sign up to attend for free by clicking here.

Russia’s air defense missiles, the S-400 have been moved into position in defense of Russian ICBM’s which is being readied for World War III.
Russia’s TASS Agency,as reported by Next News Network, is reporting that 10 missile regiments of Russia’s Strategic Missile Force are combat ready and are now positioned at the highest level of alert.
In a press release, the Strategic Missile Force’s press office stated that Seven regiments armed with Topol, Topol-M and Yars mobile missile systems will advance for combat patrols in the Ivanovo, Novosibirsk, Sverdlovsk, Kirov and Irkutsk Regions, the Altai Territory and the Republic of Mary E.
The press office further stated that, “The strategic missile forces will practice moving missile systems to field positions, performing marches with the change of field positions, carrying out measures for organization of the ground, camouflaging, protecting and defending military hardware and field positions.”
If this is not a provocative action by the Russians in preparation for World War III, I don’t know what constitute such an action.
If you chase a rabbit into his hole, he will stay there and starve to death if you keep making threats at the mouth of the hole. Is this what the Bankers Media Moguls are up to, or are they preparing to get rid of us worthless eaters?

by Anna Von Reitz:
Ever since the IMF doing business as the “UNITED STATES” together with its “STATE OF” franchises took over the governmental services contract owed to the organic states of the Union, members of Congress past and present have been racking up debt on our credit and claims against our property assets for purposes we never approved of and which do not benefit us.
You have also continued to charge us and receive credit for these “services” while failing to actually pay the debt and balance the accounts—effectively triple-dipping: taxing us on one side and forcing us to also provide our private credit as a second payment on the other and then leaving the original debt unpaid for us to pick up at the end of the day.
This is called “odious debt” and we have repudiated it and the entire system of fraud and racketeering giving rise to it.
The Federal Reserve System began over a hundred years ago, but fraud has no statute of limitations.
It is thought worldwide that you are representing the people and the organic states of the Union and that is what the people here thought, too. That’s why we trusted you. We honestly thought that you were occupying public offices and working for us, but instead, it turns out that you are occupying similarly named private corporate offices and whoever and whatever you have been working for, it isn’t us and it isn’t our states of the Union.
You’ve all been involved, knowingly or unknowingly, in a giant fraud scheme.
The aim of that fraud scheme has been to occupy what appear to be public offices and use them for private gain—mostly by manipulation of the currency and commodity markets, secondarily by outright theft and insider trading of natural resources, and last but not least, by identity theft, credit and securities fraud, and racketeering carried out by members of the American Bar Association and the Internal Revenue Service.
As of March 2015 the UNITED STATES has been insolvent. The parent corporations, the IMF and the UN Corp, have moved to take over the derelict shell and act as Successors to Contract. That means that you would all be working for Jacob Rothschild and we would all be on the meat hook to pay your debts for you as “presumed Sureties”—- the same exact scam introduced by FDR in the 1930’s.
It goes like this: create a bunch of bogus corporate franchises named after living Americans and the organic American states, name them as Sureties (Co-Signers) for your debts, seize upon their assets as collateral, run their credit into the stratosphere, claim bankruptcy protection for yourselves, and leave the victims to pay the “National Debt”—your debt—-without ever telling the poor, dumb people a word about what you’ve done while “representing” them.
Right on time, Barack Hussein Obama created a whole new raft of public transmitting utilities named after living Americans this past spring. He used nicknames styled like this: JOHN W. DOE. Was that JOHN WADE DOE or JOHN WILLIAM DOE or JOHN WOODWARD DOE? Nobody knows for sure, but millions of trusting Americans getting bills addressed to these bogus entities have been paying their bills for them.
This is a crime called personage— misrepresenting a living man as a corporate persona. It is closely allied with another crime called barratry — knowingly bringing claims in court or otherwise against such persons. This is what is happening in every courtroom in America.
At the same time that the Federal Reserve and your predecessors in office were putting this system into place they cut themselves another unbelievably good deal— a fixed “dollar for dollar” exchange rate for their own private bank script against our lawful money, the United States Dollar defined as one ounce of fine silver.
This meant that they could exchange their worthless Federal Reserve Notes — which are Promissory Notes or I.O.U.’s — for our silver. By the time Richard M. Nixon hit office the banks had not only cleaned the gold out of Fort Knox, they had heisted the silver, too, via this process.
This was all done at no cost to themselves, except the price of printing their filthy private script, which they charged back to the American People, plus interest.
The object of FDR’s confiscation of privately held gold and the draining of all the precious metals out of America was to amass all the precious metals on Earth in the control of the perpetrators of this scheme and to force everyone to use the private paper script as money in the meantime. Inevitably, the fiat script would devalue, allowing the perpetrators to benefit astronomically.
It cost about $30 for an ounce of gold in 1930. It now costs $1300 an ounce and could go a lot higher. The difference between $30 and $1300 or however much higher — is what the bankers are after. That’s their profit for this scheme. They intend to sell the gold and silver back to the grandsons of the people they stole it from for over a hundred times what it was worth in 1930.
And it’s all pure profit for the banks, because they never actually paid for any of it. It was either confiscated for them by the crooked politicians or it was “exchanged” for promises to pay that the Federal Reserve never made good on, because of course, they bankrupted the whole Federal Reserve System leaving the hapless American People and the organic states of the Union to “assume” their debt for them.
And you, members of Congress and Governors, are all up to your necks in this steaming manure pile of fraud, graft, theft, racketeering, and other repugnant criminality, caught with your pants down in front of the entire world.
Blame the banks.
They are the ones that planned all this out and executed their plan. They are the ones who ran these “governmental services corporations” behind the scenes and set them up to be look-alike, sound-alike false storefronts mimicking the actual government the American People are owed. They are the ones that incorporated everything in sight so as to remove both the assets and people of the land to the international jurisdiction of the sea, where we could all be plundered at will by them and their henchmen and employees, the members of the Bar Associations and the Internal Revenue Service.
It really is all the fault of the banks and the bankers, so why not just stand aside?
It’s either them or you. You get to choose.
You all desperately need to start doing your actual jobs—the jobs you were elected in good faith to do by the trusting American People.
You need to back our reclamation of our assets being held by the World Bank, IBRD, BIS, IMF, FEDERAL RESERVE and other banks.
You need to spearhead a worldwide drive to prosecute these criminal banks and bankers. Bernie Sanders is right. He only has the tip of the iceberg in view, but he’s right.
The ancient parasitic scourge has now taken refuge among the Chinese. It’s not their fault. They need to be warned like people exposed to a deadly flu virus.
A special note to “Governor” Brown of Oregon: you have no public office, no valid Oath of Office, and no bond worth toilet paper: you are working for a “self-insured” bankrupt corporate franchise. All attempts to use the FBI as armed commercial mercenaries on American soil are bound for failure. Everyone in the whole world knows what is going on here. You aren’t going to be able to hand the Clinton’s their uranium deal. Wash your hands and run. Fast.

Jeremiah Johnson is a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces (Airborne) and a graduate of the U.S. Army’s SERE school (Survival Evasion Resistance Escape).
We have seen some very heinous events over the past years of the Obama administration’s rule. We have seen the hollowing out of our military command structure (everyone is familiar with the list of field-grade and general staff-level commanders purged by Obama). We witnessed the “mothballing” of TARS (the balloon system complementing NORAD). We watch, as this administration shuts down production of the Tomahawk cruise missile, gets rid of the A-10 “Warthog” fleet that destroys tanks, and retires a dozen cruisers of the U.S. Navy, along with the aircraft carrier George Washington.
We watched one of the greatest examples of complicit treason and traitorous behavior as Obama sat on a well-lit stage in the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Summit, leaned over toward Dmitri Medvedev, and said, “Tell Vladimir, I will have more flexibility after the next election.” This statement concerned the stationing of U.S. missile defenses in eastern Europe and the reduction of ICBM’s (the United States’ missiles).
We watch as Obama has used his cabinet and the power-base he enjoyed when he had control of the U.S. Senate to lower the standards of the U.S. military, weakening it and turning it into an institution where his fundamental transformation agenda takes precedence over battle readiness and effectiveness. Unit cohesion is being undermined and destroyed, and the strength of our armed forces is on the wane.
We watched on as Obama handed the Chinese and Russians our response matrices and battle plans under the auspices of “Partnership Readiness and Joint Training Exercises.” This refers specifically to operations with the participation and direction of FEMA with joint drills between U.S. and Chinese forces in Hawaii November 12-14, 2013. These drills were conducted for “disaster management,” specifically for “humanitarian purposes,” and on U.S. soil. One of the administration’s “Yes-men,” American Admiral Sam Locklear stated:
“These types of exercises give us a good place to start and to get into the kind of rhythm of understanding and trusting each other.”
This came from the mouth of a U.S. Admiral, the commander of US Pacific Command. It is a shame that he isn’t being quoted right now with the standoff that is currently taking place between China and the U.S. just outside of Chinese territorial waters. What would his opinion be of the new hypersonic missile that China has developed to take out an entire carrier group with just ¼ megaton warhead?
Just this past weekend we witnessed more weakness and obfuscation regarding the missile launched off of the coast of California in the evening of 11/7/15, witnessed by thousands of people. Dave Hodges posted a comment from a gentleman who worked on Trident missiles who believed the launch (by the U.S. Navy) was to gauge response time and effectiveness in dealing with an SLBM (Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missile). Remember, the THAD system has proven itself several times under rigidly controlled conditions in Hawaii to be an abysmal failure regarding missile intercepts.
Matching the level of the (purposeful, administration-designed) U.S. complacency, the Russian military has been matchless in terms of tactical acumen and performance. Vladimir Putin’s brilliance is visible in the Russian offer in the form of a request for the U.S. to join it in the fight against ISIL/ISIS… a war against the very entity created and sponsored by the Obama administration. By not accepting the Russian offer, the U.S. appears not to be helping its “fellow partner and actor” on the world-stage of affairs. If it does accept, then the U.S. fights against its own creation.
The Russians are quietly and patiently on the move. We witnessed the annexation (the conquest) of Ukraine. Now a bitter semi-stalemate exists between ethnic Russian separatists with Ukrainian citizenship and the Ukrainian military, the former also “augmented” with Spetsnaz units. Those selfsame units have rotated into the Syrian theater of operations. We are watching the ongoing actions in Syria with the continuous Russian bombing of ISIS and the gradual movement of ground troops into the country.
Russia has been on the move, now, incrementally and patiently. In December 2013, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that Russia would respond with nuclear weapons. The Yars (SS-29) ICBM has been developed that can penetrate all current U.S. missile defenses. For those who may think this piece to be “slanted” towards current U.S. policy, please think again:
The U.S. has been in the process (for decades) of destabilizing former Soviet-bloc, eastern European nations with the infusion of capital from the IMF and with the insertion of American bases, military personnel, and war materials.
The Varshavyanka-class submarines (diesel, improved Kilo-class subs), also known as Project 636, with stealth technology and improved range in combat, are capable of striking targets on the land, under water, and on the surface. A 45-day range without refueling, and an arsenal of 18 torpedoes and 8 SAM’s (surface to air missiles) make these subs very formidable. They also can be fitted with cruise missiles capable of delivering a 250 kiloton warhead. They have been labeled the “black holes” of the ocean by the U.S. navy. One of these bad boys cruising up the Chesapeake Bay and into the Potomac…could pop out a cruise missile and fry DC in under three minutes.
A federal police officer reported on Steve Quayle’s website that Russia has been moving her subs into the Pacific, prepositioning its assets to conduct an attack on the West Coast of the U.S. and/or an EMP-device attack. The U.S. has been pushing things in Syria. Remember on March 24, 2014, that Andrei Kozyrev, former Russian Foreign Minister said that the Ukraine crisis was “in the 11th hour” to avoid a nuclear war. The U.S. was pushing things then in Europe, and this was the reason for the declaration of willingness to use nukes. On March 22, just two days earlier, the U.S. had sent 12 F-16 fighter planes and 300 troops to Poland.
The main point is that the U.S. and the NATO countries are now facing nations that are not backing down and if anything are taking a superior position regarding a potential attack posture. With the U.S. economy in a shambles and our military capabilities seriously compromised, the fall is visible on the horizon and steadily approaching. The situation changes on a daily basis, but one can see the two sides are on a collision course, one way or another.

- 22kth, 2015, Alaska State Judge Anna von Reitz (Anna Maria Riezinger) addressed an open letter to all federal agents, including the FBI and US Marshals to arrest Congress, the President and the Secretary of the Treasury. She goes into incredible detail on the fraud that has been committed. Anyone who reads this is sure to learn at least something. Below is the text and you can open the original pdf here. This has been encouraged to be shared widely.
Anna Maria Riezinger (Anna Von Reitz)
November 28, 2015 Big Lake, Alaska
Dear Federal Agents:
I am addressing this letter in this way, because it is my understanding that it will be read by members of both the FBI and the US Marshals Service. It is also my understanding that you have available for examination a wet-ink signed copy of the illustrated affidavit of probable cause entitled “You Know Something Is Wrong When…..An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” as back-up reference and evidence.
Since the publication of the affidavit a plethora of new supporting documentation and evidence has come to light. We found, for example, that on June 30, 1864, the members of Congress acting as the Board of Directors of a private, mostly foreign-owned corporation doing business as “The United States of America, Incorporated” changed the meaning of “state”, “State” and “United States” to mean “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation”. Like the 1862 change of the meaning of the word “person” to mean “corporation” cited in our affidavit, these special coded meanings of words render a drastically different picture of the world around us.
It turns out that your “personal bank account” is actually a “corporate bank account”. The “Colorado State Court” is actually the “Colorado District of Columbia Municipal Corporation Court”. If you are shocked to learn these facts, you are not alone. So are millions of other Americans. These changes were made 150 years ago and tucked away in reams of boring meeting minutes and legalistic gobbledygook meant to be applied only to the internal workings of a private governmental services corporation and its employees.
There was no public announcement, just as there was no public announcement or explanation when Congress created “municipal citizenship” known as “US citizenship” in 1868. Properly, technically, even to this day, this form of “citizenship” applies only to those born in the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and other Insular States, so there was no real reason to educate the general public about the topic. As Congress was secretively using the labor and the private property assets of these “citizens” as collateral backing the corporate debts of “The United States of America, Inc.” there was plenty of reason to obscure this development.
At the end of the Civil War it would have been very unpopular to reveal that they were simply changing gears from private sector slave ownership to public sector slave ownership. You may be surprised to learn that slavery was not abolished by the Thirteenth or any other Amendment to any constitution then or now. Instead, slavery was redefined as the punishment meted out to criminals. Look it up and read it for yourselves. It remains perfectly legal to enslave criminals, and it was left to Congress to define who the criminals were, because Congress was given plenary power over the District of Columbia and its citizenry by the original Constitution of the Republic and could do whatever it liked within the District and the Washington, DC Municipalities.
A child picking dandelions on the sidewalk could be arbitrarily defined as a criminal and enslaved for life by the renegade Congress functioning as the government of the District of Columbia and as the Board of Directors for the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation, but for starters, Congress simply defined “US citizens” as debt slaves under the 14th Amendment of their corporation’s articles and by-laws—-which they deceptively named the “Constitution of the United States of America”.
The actual Constitution was and still is called “The Constitution for the united States of America”, but most people untrained in the Law and trusting what they believed to be their government didn’t notice the difference between “The Constitution for the united States of America” and the “Constitution of the United States of America”. Are you beginning to see a pattern of deliberate deceit and self-interest and double-speak and double-dealing? And are you also beginning to catch the drift—the motivation—behind it? Let’s discuss the concept of “hypothecation of debt”.
This little gem was developed by the bankers who actually owned and ran the governmental services corporations doing business as “The United States of America, Inc.” and as the “United States, Incorporated”. When you hypothecate debt against someone or against some asset belonging to someone else, you simply claim that they agreed to stand as surety for your debt — similar to cosigning a car loan — and as long as you make your payments, nobody is any the wiser. Normally, it’s not possible for us to just arbitrarily claim that someone is our surety for debt without proof of consent, but that is exactly what Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the Conference of Governors did in March of 1933.
They named all of us and all our property as surety standing good for the debts of their own bankrupt governmental services corporation during bankruptcy reorganization—-and got away with it by claiming that they were our “representatives” and that we had delegated our authority to them to do this “for” us. The exact date and occasion when this happened and where it is recorded, is given in our affidavit. In order to pull this off, however, they had to allege that we were all “US citizens”, and therefore, all subject to the plenary power of Congress acting as an oligarchy ruling over the District of Columbia and the Federal Territories.
They did this by abusing the public trust and creating and registering millions of foreign situs trusts named after each of us. Under their own diversity of citizenship rules, corporations are considered to be “US citizens”. So they created all these foreign situs trusts as franchises of their own bankrupt corporation, used our names styled like this: John Quincy Adams—-and placed commercial liens against our names as chattel owned by their corporation and standing as surety for its debts. A group of thugs elected to political office grossly transgressed against the American people and the American states and committed the crime of personage against each and every one of us without us ever being aware of it.
They couldn’t enslave us, but they could enslave a foreign situs trust named after us— that we conveniently didn’t know existed— and by deliberately confusing this “thing” with us via the misuse of our given names, they could bring charges against what appeared to be us and our private property in their very own corporate tribunals. And so the fleecing of America began in earnest. The hirelings had our credit cards, had stolen our identities, and were ready to begin a crime spree unheralded in human history.
They claimed that we all knew about this arrangement and consented to it, because we “voluntarily” gave up our gold when FDR sent his henchmen around to collect it—-when as millions of Americans can attest, people gave up their gold in preference to being shot or having to kill federal agents. They chose life for everyone concerned over some pieces of metal, and for that, they are to be honored; unfortunately, their decision gave the rats responsible an excuse to claim that Americans wanted to leave the gold standard and wanted the “benefits” of this New Deal in “equitable exchange” for their gold, their identities, the abuse of their good names as bankrupts and debtors, the loss of allodial title to their land and homes, and their subjection as slaves to the whims of Congress.
According to them—that is, those who benefited from this gross betrayal of the public trust— we all voluntarily left the Republic and the guarantees of the actual Constitution behind, willingly subjected ourselves to Congressional rule, donated all our assets including our labor and property to the Public Charitable Trust (set up after the Civil War as a welfare trust for displaced plantation slaves), and agreed to live as slaves owned by the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation in exchange for what? Welfare that we paid for ourselves. Social Security that we paid for ourselves.
The criminality of the “US Congress” and the “Presidents” acting since 1933 is jawdroppingly shocking. Their abuse of the trust of the American people is even worse. They have portrayed this circumstance as a political choice instead of an institutionalized fraud scheme, and they have “presumed” that we all went along with it and agreed to it without complaint. Thus, they have been merrily and secretively having us declared “civilly dead” as American State Citizens the day we are born, and entering a false registration claiming that we are “US Citizens” instead. We are told, when we wake up enough to ask, that we are free to choose our political status.
We don’t have to serve as debt slaves. We can go back and reclaim our guaranteed Republican form of government and our birthright status if we want to—- but that requires a secret process in front of the probate court and expatriation from the Federal United States to the Continental United States and all sorts of voo-doo in backrooms that can only be pursued by the few and the knowledgeable and the blessed. Everyone else has to remain as a debt slave and chattel serving whatever corporation bought the latest version of corporate “persona” named after us.
So let me ask you, as members of the FBI and as US Marshals—- does this sound like something you want to be involved with enforcing on innocent people, or does it sound like something you want to end as expeditiously as possible? The frauds that took root in the wake of the Civil War and which blossomed in the 1930’s have come to their final fruition.
Employees of the “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation” and its United Nations successors are being used as jack-booted thugs to throw Americans into privately owned “federal correctional facilities” when those who need correction—- the members of the American Bar Association and the euphemistically named and privately owned and operated “DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE”—continue to ignore the fact that Americans DO have a choice and that by the millions we are demanding our freedom from all these pathetic false commercial claims and presumptions.
We are standing up before the whole world and telling these privately owned “governmental services corporations” to go bankrupt like any other corporation that doesn’t do its job and mind its budget. These entities deserve to go bankrupt and worse. They have spent money and credit that was never theirs to spend. They have defrauded millions if not billions of innocent people and they have prevented Americans from claiming their birthrights for far too long.
These people— the members of Congress and the various “Presidents” of the numerous “United States” corporations — have acted as criminals. They deserve to be recognized as such. The members of the American Bar Association have attempted to wash their hands while profiting from the situation and obstructing justice. They stand around shrugging and saying, “Well, it’s a political choice. We don’t have anything to say about that.”—–yet at the same time, they refuse to correct the probate records to reflect our chosen change of political status when we plainly identify ourselves and enunciate our Will for them.
They, too, deserve to be recognized as self-interested criminals and accomplices to identity theft, credit fraud, and worse— which is why we have recently issued a $279 trillion dollar commercial obligation lien against the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association, and the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. All our assets— our bodies, homes, businesses, lands, and labor—have been signed over into the “Public Charitable Trust” by con men merely claiming to represent us. Then, when we object to their lies and entrapment, they use the same fraud against us as their excuse for bringing more false claims against us and throwing us in jail. Enough is enough.
The British Monarch and the Lords of the Admiralty have promoted this fraud against us at the same time they have claimed to be our trustees, allies and friends in perpetuity. It’s time to clear the way for us to politely and peaceably exit from any presumption that we are or ever were “US citizens”, willing participants in the “Public Charitable Trust”, or willing “sureties” for the debts of any private bank-run governmental services corporation merely calling itself the United States of Something or Other.
We repudiate any presumption of private municipal citizenship or obligation to the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation or any successor thereof, and demand an immediate and permanent correction of the civil record to reflect our birthright status as American State Citizens, nunc pro tunc.
As for you, as “Federal Agents”, you have a lot to think about. For starters— who really pays your paycheck? Is it the goons in Washington, DC? Or does it all come from the American people you are supposed to be serving? Do you believe for one moment that anyone just lined up and gave their gold to FDR voluntarily? Do you believe that anyone gave away all their property and the guarantees of the actual Constitution for the “privilege” of paying for Social Security? No? Wake up and smell the java and start doing your real jobs. If anyone complains—arrest him.
We are reopening the American Common Law Courts expressly for the purpose of settling disputes related to living people and their property assets in excess of $20 as mandated by the Seventh Amendment. We, the American people, are the ones holding absolute civil authority upon the land of the Continental United States, and we give you permission to arrest the members of Congress, the President, the Secretary of the Treasury, and any other politician or appointee pretending to speak for us so as to enslave us and bring false claims against us via this institutionalized fraud scheme.
We want it recognized for what it is and dismantled and repudiated tout de suite. Any court that is caught arresting and prosecuting Americans under the presumptions just described to you— such as bringing charges against foreign situs trusts with names styled like this: John Quincy Adams, or Cestui Que Vie trusts styled like this: JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, or Puerto Rican public transmitting utilities styled like this: JOHN Q. ADAMS—-it is your responsibility to make sure that any individuals being addressed by these courts were actually born in the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, or one of the other Insular States and that they are not ignorant American State Citizens being falsely registered and railroaded.
Do you understand? Is it now completely clear who the criminals are? Your actual employers and benefactors are being attacked and defrauded by criminals pretending to act as their elected representatives and accomplices in black robes who are serving as enforcers of this fraud for profit. This has been happening right under your noses. This whole circumstance has escaped broad scale public understanding because it was being pursued by private governmental services corporations owned and operated by international banking cartels who claimed that these “private arrangements” were none of the public’s business, despite the grotesque and far-ranging impact these cozy understandings have had upon the people of this and many other countries.
Let it be perfectly clear to you that the business of these private corporations has become our business because they have operated in violation of their charters, in violation of the treaties allowing their existence, and in violation of the National Trust. The American Bar Association and the Internal Revenue Service have both been owned and operated as private foreign bill collectors and trust administrators by Northern Trust, Inc., in violent conflict of interest. They are not professional associations, non-profits, nor units of government. They are con artists and privateers whose licenses expired as of September 1, 2013.
The United States Marshals Service is enabled to act in the capacity of constitutionally – sworn Federal Marshals and we invoke their office and service as such; failure to accept the public office means rejection of all authority related to us. The same may be said of the FBI. Either you do your jobs as constitutionally sworn public officers, or you act as private mall cops in behalf of the offending corporations and under color of law when you pretend to have any public authority or function.
This is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

We are presently having about one inch per hour of snow accumulation here in the NC Mountains, so don’t be surprised if we are off line for a while. The weather goons are predicting eighteen inches here, and the trees will soon be falling.
Have a good day!
If you don’t conform to the crowd now, you’re a ‘radical’
That’s me in the middle!
Sovereign Valley Farm, Chile
In 2014, the Journal of Neuroscience published the results of a unique study that probed deep into human emotion.
Two Dutch scientists had conducted an experiment in which they exposed test subjects to a wide range of scenarios to evoke some of the most primal human emotions– joy, anger, etc.
Subjects were hooked up to an electro-encephalogram (EEG) in order to quantitatively measure their brains’ cognitive response to powerful emotions.
And the results were pretty conclusive: the most powerful emotional experience, as measured by the sheer volume of human brain activity and neurological reaction, was humiliation.
This really explains a lot when you think about it.
Deep down we human beings are social creatures. We seek acceptance from the group.
It’s why conformity is so much easier than standing apart from the crowd, even when the crowd makes absolutely no sense.
And those who don’t conform and think independently are labeled radicals.
Our financial system is a great example of this.
They’ve spiked the punch bowl with so many lies. Home prices always go up. The debt doesn’t matter because we owe it to ourselves. We can always print more money.
None of this nonsense is true. But the financial establishment tells us so. Big media repeats it over and over again. Eventually hundreds of millions of people believe it.
And anyone who dares question the sanctity of this system is labeled a radical.
(This goes for just about everything now. Eerily, governments are now branding people who disagree with the state as radicals.)
This is total BS.
You’re not a radical because the federal government’s own balance sheet shows that they are hopelessly insolvent to the tune of negative $17.7 trillion.
You’re not a radical because the US Federal Reserve’s balance sheet shows that, on a mark to market basis, they too are insolvent.
You’re not a radical because the balance sheet of the FDIC shows that they don’t maintain the minimum amount of capital as required by law to adequately insure the banking system.
You’re not a radical because the financial statements of some of the largest banks in the country show that they only keep a tiny percentage of your savings on reserve, and park the rest of your money in some foolish investment fad, or loan it to a bankrupt government.
You’re not a radical because the annual reports of the largest trust funds in the US retirement system show that they are either pitifully underfunded, or entirely out of cash.
You’re not a radical because you think that, maybe just maybe, there might be negative consequences at some point down the road from all of this insanity…
… that, maybe just maybe, when nearly every major component of the financial system is either highly illiquid or completely insolvent, that there could possibly be trouble down the road.
Most of all, you’re not a radical because you have a Plan B.
It hardly seems outlandish to look at objective, publicly available data and think “wow, this entire banking system is built on a house of cards…” and then to actually do something about it.
There are so many options.
You might look abroad to hold a portion of your savings where the banks are extremely liquid and well capitalized, located in a jurisdiction with minimal debt.
Or you might simply consider holding some physical cash, or a mix between physical cash and precious metals.
These aren’t radical ideas. It’s sensible to take astute, rational steps to protect yourself from the consequences of such obvious risks.
Have a nice weekend,
What good thing can be said for a nation so stupid they continue supporting the very system that is destroying them? Talk about humiliation! Just wait till the shit really hits the fan in America. Most of the city folks are already incapable of wiping their ass, and soon they will be steeling your eye glasses to barter with, and, or your shoes and socks. If you’re not capable and ready to blow their head off, they will sooner or later become cannibals’ and eat you alive. GOOD LUCK SUCKERS!

It seems everywhere we look that the Second Amendment is under attack. Just last month the New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee was considering legislation that would ban ammunition under the auspices of protecting police. Now it would appear from a brief reading of the proposal that the ammunition spoken of would be “armor piercing ammunition”, but the language also encompasses any ammo that is deemed to “pose a threat to the safety and well being of law enforcement.” Can anyone say “all” ammunition?
Let’s keep in mind that most law enforcement wear Level II-A protective vests that stop 9mm and .40 bullets. So that means that if strictly taken for armor piercing all other ammunition would be banned. This means you would be unable to get ammo for your AR-15, many hunting rifles and even some handguns, such as your trusty .45.
We are not even talking just common bullets. In addition, Ammoland.com states, “Common hunting, target, and self-defense ammunition would be subject to ban, along with BB’s, airgun pellets, and non-metallic ammunition like plastic airsoft pellets, if the Attorney General decides that they pose a threat to the safety and well being of law enforcement. “
The NRA also agrees with Ammoland’s assessment stating,
“Although the bill only mentions handgun ammunition, it is in fact not limited to handgun ammunition, and would apply to all rifle ammunition for which a handgun is ever made. As an increasing number of gun manufacturers make handgun models that shoot rifle caliber ammunition, the line between “handgun” vs. “rifle” ammunition has become blurred, and the New Jersey State Police have already begun treating rifle ammunition in this category as if it were handgun ammunition for regulatory purposes. As long as a handgun exists that shoots a particular caliber of rifle ammunition, New Jersey treats that ammunition as if it were handgun ammunition. “
The bills (Assembly Bill A588 & A1013) went even further and stated, “This bill makes using a defaced or stolen firearm in causing serious bodily injury or bodily injury to a law enforcement officer a crime.” So if you purchased a firearm from someone, paid a price and had a bill of sale (and the firearm was either stolen or had the serial number removed) and cops broke down your door and you defended yourself with the weapon and injured or killed the officer, you could be charged with a crime!
It is outrageous that these law makers do not respect their constituents enough to come head on after the guns people use. They have to manipulate and blow things out of proportion in order to get their agendas accomplished. However, in this instance they are doing a sneak attack and basically saying, “It’s OK for you to have weapons, you just can’t have ammunition.” I have to say this is a brilliant strategy but that is not to pat them on the back. I’m betting that most people see this and know they better obtain their ammo now, because once the ban is passed, it won’t be available in Jersey. In fact, if you are caught with it, it will probably be grounds for fines and jail time.
No doubt everyone has heard of the cries last year demanding federal legislation to ban high capacity ammunition clips after congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot.
Our own President is even undertaking efforts for more gun legislation, albeit “under the radar”, which many commentators connected to the Fast & Furious scandal. On top of that the New UN Small Arms Treaty is an international agreement which is seeking to disarm Americans. Some say it is an end around the 2nd Amendment. Others say no the Constitution would prevail over it. Let’s always keep at the forefront of our minds that the UN does not have our best interest at heart. Sadly, neither does the current occupant of the White House. This treaty would be up for ratification this year by the Senate.

This article is a statement of the facts, taken from the Constitution, the Fourteenth Amendment and several Supreme Court decisions and is not meant to, or intended to, be interpreted as a political endorsement, or lack thereof, of any political candidate. Family Security Matters takes no political point of view whatsoever and discusses only matters of major import to the security and defense of the United States.
Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution states that Congress shall have the power to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.
Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution states:
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
First of all, Ted Cruz was born in Canada and not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.
Furthermore, the manner in which Ted Cruz acquired US citizenship bears comparison to the Supreme Court case, Rogers v. Belle (1971). Aldo Mario Bellei was born in Italy of an Italian father and a US citizen mother.
According to Rogers v. Belle (1971), inserting “Cruz” within the text of the majority opinion:
“He [Cruz] was not born in the United States. He [Cruz] was not naturalized in the United States. And he [Cruz] has not been subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. All this being so, it seems indisputable that the first sentence of the Fourteenth Amendment has no application to plaintiff Bellei [Cruz]. He [Cruz] simply is not a “Fourteenth Amendment first sentence” citizen.
Even in the dissenting opinion of Rogers v. Belle (1971), Justices Brennan and Douglas acknowledge:
“Concededly, petitioner [Cruz] was a citizen at birth (emphasis added), not by constitutional right, but only through operation of a federal statute.”
According to United States v. Wong Kim Ark (1898):
“But it [the first sentence of the Fourteenth Amendment] has not touched the acquisition of citizenship by being born abroad of American parents; and has left that subject to be regulated, as it had always been, by Congress, in the exercise of the power conferred by the Constitution to establish an uniform rule of naturalization.”
Again, Rogers v. Belle (1971), referring to United States v. Wong Kim Ark (1898):
“Thus, at long last, there emerged an express constitutional definition of citizenship. But it was one restricted to the combination of three factors, each and all significant: birth in the United States, naturalization in the United States, and subjection to the jurisdiction of the United States. The definition obviously did not apply to any acquisition of citizenship by being born abroad of an American parent. That type, and any other not covered by the Fourteenth Amendment, was necessarily left to proper congressional action.”
Further clarifying (emphasis added) the distinction of citizen by birth and naturalization, even at birth by Act of Congress, Rogers v. Bellei (1971) states:
“However, the clearest expression of the idea that Bellei and others [Cruz] similarly situated should for constitutional purposes be considered as naturalized citizens is to be found in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U. S. 649 (1898):
‘The Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution . . . contemplates two sources of citizenship, and two only: birth and naturalization. Citizenship by naturalization can only be acquired by naturalization under the authority and in the forms of law. But citizenship by birth is established by the mere fact of birth under the circumstances defined in the Constitution. Every person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof becomes at once a citizen of the United States, and needs no naturalization. A person born out of the jurisdiction of the United States can only become a citizen by being naturalized, either by treaty, as in the case of the annexation of foreign territory; or by authority of Congress, exercised either by declaring certain classes of persons to be citizens, as in the enactments conferring citizenship upon foreign-born children of citizens, or by enabling foreigners individually to become citizens by proceedings in the judicial tribunals, as in the ordinary provisions of the naturalization acts.’
‘The Court in Wong Kim Ark thus stated a broad and comprehensive definition of naturalization. As shown in Wong Kim Ark, naturalization, when used in its constitutional sense, is a generic term describing and including within its meaning all those modes of acquiring American citizenship other than birth in this country. All means of obtaining American citizenship which are dependent upon a congressional enactment are forms of naturalization. This inclusive definition has been adopted in several opinions of this Court besides United States v. Wong Kim Ark, supra. Thus, in Minor v. Happersett, 21 Wall. 162, 88 U. S. 167 (1875), the Court said:’
‘Additions might always be made to the citizenship of the United States in two ways: first, by birth, and second, by naturalization. . . . [N]ew citizens may be born, or they may be created by naturalization.’
‘And in Elk v. Wilkins, 112 U. S. 94 (1884), the Court took the position that the Fourteenth Amendment contemplates two sources of citizenship, and two sources only: birth and naturalization. . . . Persons not . . . subject to the jurisdiction of the United States at the time of birth cannot become so afterwards, except by being naturalized, either individually, as by proceedings under the naturalization acts, or collectively, as by the force of a treaty by which foreign territory is acquired.'”
There is a distinction between obtaining citizenship by birth, that is, being born in the US; and becoming a citizen at birth through an Act of Congress, that is, naturalization.
Based on the Constitution, the Fourteenth Amendment and numerous Supreme Court decisions, Ted Cruz is arguably a naturalized US citizen and ineligible for the Presidency.

Why Unrest of Any Kind Defeats Both Versions of America
There has been a lot of inappropriate talk about “civil war” in America. Let’s be perfectly blunt.
The Federal United States has been operated as a puppet by the British Government which in turn has been operated as a puppet by the City State of Westminster aka Inner City of London which has been operated by international banking cartels and the Bar for generations. In turn, these organizations have been influenced, led, and perpetuated by what Frank O’Collins calls “the Roman Cult” within the Roman Catholic Church.
Americans, like the British People, have gone along trustingly and been abused and enslaved.
We, Americans, have been used repeatedly as the “muscle” behind wars for profit and illegal and immoral police actions in other countries undertaken by the British Crown Corporation and its cronies throughout the world, with the result that we are widely blamed and despised as the perpetrators of all this greed and violence when in fact we have been victims like everyone else and have merely been more gullible than the rest of the world.
A careful reading of the historical documents, especially the treaties ending the Revolutionary War and The Constitution, reveals that the British retained control of a substantial portion of the American jurisdiction of the sea including our ability to conclude international treaties and commercial trade agreements—both of which have been crippled and controlled since the birth of our nation by this arrangement.
In exchange for our Forefather’s agreement to this deplorably bad deal, the British Monarch was made our Trustee on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways. It was thought that his clear obligation to the Americans in this capacity would bind his hands and prevent him from doing us harm. In 1794 a treaty between the Americans and the City State of Westminster was also concluded in which we were promised “perpetual” friendship and amity.
We definitely need to remind them of the meaning of “perpetual”.
So here we are at the beginning of the twenty-first century and our Trustees have proven to be our worst enemies— not only our worst enemies, but worst enemies of all freedom-loving and decent people everywhere. Since 1866 the British Government has privately promoted and perpetuated a policy of eternal war and enslavement of the world’s population while keeping up an appearance of being the bulwark and defender of western civilization. Like a pedophile acting as a Foster Parent, the British Government has spared no expense in its efforts to cover up its dirty work, but it is at last discovered.
The Federal United States is and has always been an instrumentality of the British Government and the international banks and the Bar Associations and it is the Federal United States—not the Continental United States— which has been guilty of all the crimes against humanity which have been racked up and placed at the door of the hapless Americans who have been deceived into believing that the Federal United States is or ever was their lawful government.
Time to wake up. We have been hosts for these parasites and now they are moving on to attempt to parasitize China and its vast population.
The so-called “Federal Government” is a foreign corporation under contract to provide our States with nineteen enumerated services directed by our Trustee the British Monarch and his corporate Executive Officer known as the “President of the United States”. The British Monarch was paid for this “service” with tribute in the form of mineral wealth extracted from the American States and was faithfully paid for involving us in an endless stream of unjust police actions and dirty commercial deals and then handing us the blame and the bills.
Let it stand before the American People and the entire world who the guilty parties actually are: the administration of Queen Elizabeth II, her corporation, ELIZABETH II, the British Crown Corporation and its franchises worldwide, the Lords of the Admiralty and the City-State of Westminister together with all its Successor Organizations and franchises, and the Holy See doing business as FRANCISCUS are directly and personally responsible for all this injustice and mayhem and mis-administration of the Public Trust in Britain, America, the Commonwealth, India, Japan, all of Western Europe and most of Eastern Europe, too.
The populations of all these countries have a grudge and many, many claims against these perpetrators; the People of China would be well-warned and advised not to accept any “gifts” from Jacob Rothshild or the World Bank or QEII, either. Gold and silver are not food, not fuel, and not the raw resources that China needs. Apart from being excellent conductors of electricity and photo emulsions, of what use are these so-called “precious” commodities?
Time to wake up.
We have all been bamboozled by these phonies (as in Phoenicians) long enough.
The bankers and lawyers who have acted as the foot soldiers of this global Evil Empire have planned various scenarios for the demise of America. First of all, we are to be blamed for all their sins. Second of all, we are to be charged with all their crimes. Third, we are to be stripped of whatever wealth we still have after they have stolen as much as they can possibly steal to pay their debts.
From their standpoint, it would be expedient to foment a civil war on our soil. There are a number of reasons.
First, it kills off their lawful Creditors, the American People. They are now claiming in the United Nations that we no longer exist and that the heirs of their Creditors are “absent” or “unknown”. This pathetic excuse is being offered as a means of avoiding paying back the American People for gold illegally confiscated in the 1930’s and labor and resources exchanged for no payment but hot air and paper ever since.
Second, murder of the American People allows them to collect on life insurance policies that they have gratuitously established on each and every one of us, naming themselves and their corporations as the beneficiaries.
Third, murder of the American People leaves an opportunity for them and their buddies to claim the “abandoned property” just as they did in Germany after the War.
They call this “plowing the field”—- emptying the land of its people and decrepit buildings and infrastructure so that it can be rebuilt under new ownership: theirs.
However, they have to have a plausible reason for attacking the American People, because after all they are under public contract to protect us and are continuing to siphon off large payments from our public treasuries for the service. They therefore have to find some sneaky, backdoor means to excuse their actions — and their continuing crimes against us.
It is time to recognize these criminals for who and what they are and to bring a stop to them and their predations upon the entire world. The most expedient way to do this is for everyone worldwide to cease operating as any form of corporation—simply dissolve them all, nationalize their assets in the case of “government” corporations, demand that the Pope acting as CEO liquidate those corporations that have acted as criminal syndicates—-including the major banks. Apply the Icelandic Answer.
Everyone please note that although these vermin have been misrepresenting the American People to the rest of the world for the past 150 years and mischaracterizing us at home, they are NOT the American People owed the land jurisdiction of the United States and never have been. The mis-administration and usurpation of our government that has been accomplished via semantic deceit and other forms of fraud, but that, too, has been discovered and is at an end.
If those responsible for this egregious behavior have any hope of surviving themselves, they must make amends to the rest of the planet and the people they have harmed.
In the case of the Federal United States the turning of the worm leaves one thing very clear: any attacks against the unarmed and peaceful American People to whom they owe “good faith service” will be instantly recognized as crimes of war and aggression by commercial mercenaries disguised as units of government.
Any failure to correct the political status of Americans to reflect their actual political status as “free sovereign and independent people of the United States” — that is, the Continental United States— like any attempt to mischaracterize their Creditors and the Heirs of their Creditors will also be recognized for what it is and rebutted.
Any failure of the British Monarch and the “President of the United States” to repay all the debt of the Federal United States that is lawfully owed to the innocent American People of the Continental United States will be obvious self-interest and default upon debt in the full view of all other nations.
When all those other peoples and nations have been afforded a full view of what has gone on here and stop to consider how they, too, have been abused, lied about, defrauded, and enslaved by these Babylonian Snake Oil Salesmen in tweeds, they will conclude as we have that we have all suffered from a single malady which has its world headquarters in the Inner City of London. And then we can all take appropriate action—like enforcement of the $279 trillion dollar International Commercial Obligation Lien which the Americans have placed against the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association and the misnamed Department of Justice which matures tomorrow.
The people of the Earth must unite against the evils perpetuated by the inhabitants of “the World”—a fake, illusory Satanic construct incorporated legal fictions— that is, lies— which serves only to mask the identities and obscure the filthy and violent intentions of profoundly evil men masquerading as philanthropists and pillars of the global community instead.
To all men and women everywhere the alarm goes forth and the claim in equity is clearly stated. This is our Earth. It belongs to us, not to any corporation. This, the American Government, as opposed to the “US Government” is a lawful and peaceful government “of the people, by the people and for the people”—- not a government “of the corporation, by the corporation and for the corporation”.
If we, the people of the Continental United States are forced to take up arms against those operating the Federal United States, it will be a clarion call for your joint understanding and assistance in removing this source of criminality from our mutual midst. Let the Federal United States and the Governments of Britain and the City-State of Westminster and the administration of the Vatican stand revealed as crime syndicates that have created and which are responsible for much of the poverty, misery, injustice, and conflict that have infested our planet for generations—-and not as they would portray themselves as enlightened philanthropists.
Petty crooks operating on a giant stage is much closer to the truth of it.
As each person reads this and knows that we can choose global peace or global war and that it is not negotiable that innocent victims should again bear the brunt of this criminality, don’t be afraid just because you are suddenlyaware that you are “just one person” in the midst of a universe. Become aware instead that you are the universe

By Ron Ewart
January 13, 2016
“If you own rural land, the government and the environmentalists want it and intend to take it, regardless of your property rights engraved in the U. S. Constitution.” Ron Ewart
In our recent article entitled “Secession or War – American West Against the East”, we described what was going on with those that run this country in the East being in direct conflict with those who live in the West. This festering conflict has led to the Bundy Ranch armed standoff in Nevada in 2014 and now the Hammond Ranch armed standoff in Southeastern Oregon by the Bundy-led militia. The reader might wonder how did we get to this point where guns became necessary to protect property rights?
Since the passage of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in 1969, the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970 (EPA) and finally the Endangered Species Act in 1973 (ESA), a radical environmental mindset has invaded America like a rapidly metastasizing disease. This environmental disease has become so pervasive you can find it in all of government, in our public schools, our colleges, the courts, the news media and even corporate America has become a victim. Elements of this environmental disease are woven subtly into commercial advertising. The EPA, the BLM, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife, the U. S. National Forest and the U. S. Interior agencies became the unrelenting, Gestapo-like enforcement arm for NEPA and the ESA.
One year prior to the passage of the Endangered Species Act in 1972, the United Nations held an “Earth Summit” in Rio de Janeiro from which Agenda 21 was born. Most of the world nations signed off on Agenda 21, including that great conservative president, George H. W. Bush, on behalf of the American people. In reality, Agenda 21 was and is nothing more than an outright, open declaration of war on American constitutionally protected private property rights, driven by radical environmentalism and social justice.
Then in 1976 the United Nations held a “Declaration of Human Settlements” conference in Vancouver, Canada where international environmental, land use and socialist policies where laid out and established as permanent guidelines. The following paragraph was taken directly from the policy paper coming out of the Vancouver conference.
Land, because of its unique nature and the crucial role it plays in human settlements, cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. Social justice, urban renewal and development, the provision of decent dwellings-and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole.
The UN preamble flies in the face of American property rights and the U. S. Constitution. The UN is not America’s friend but it maybe too late to do anything about it. The U. S. Government and all state and local governments have adopted this preamble and Agenda 21 either in part or in whole and they have passed laws to implement them. States, counties and cities have even adopted international building, utility and environmental codes. The one-world-order was institutionalized into American law years ago, right under our collective noses.
President Clinton established the Council on Sustainable Development in June of 1993 to further integrate Agenda 21 policies into American law. The American Planning Association has adopted many of the tenets of Agenda 21. Those tenets end up in city and county land use comprehensive plans all over America. This disease of radical environmentalism has propagated rapidly and is now completely institutionalized into the American system of law. Were you ever asked to offer an opinion on these environmental changes to law, or attend a public hearing? Hardly! Your “representatives” just did it, unilaterally. Only environmentalists and government employees came to the public hearings.
What is the result of all this environmental national and international gerrymandering? Powerful and very wealthy environmental groups have sprouted up all over America. NEPA, ESA and the EPA rules have given these environmental groups a feeding ground of federal law allowing them to sue the government every time the government violates its own laws. The government violates its own laws all the time. The environmentalists win most of the time and with each win they reap multi-million dollar awards of your tax dollars and become even wealthier. In addition, wealthy philanthropists donate millions to environmental groups. Meanwhile, freedom and property rights groups like NARLO are starved of the funds necessary to keep up their fight to preserve the Republic.
One such radical environmental group is the Center for Biological Diversity (CFBD). They have become filthy rich suing the government over the Endangered Species Act (ESA). First, they research species to find if any species are threatened or endangered according to “their” science. Then they send a list of what species they think that may be threatened or endangered to the ESA and demand they be listed. If the government doesn’t list the species within the ESA regulations, CFBD sues the government. CFBD wins all the time because the courts have an environmental bias.
We have seen this bias first hand in a court case against a private property owner near Tacoma. WA. The judge openly displayed his environmental bias in the court transcripts. The man was sent to jail for 6 months and fined $20,000 for cleaning out a ditch on his own property. When he cleaned out the ditch the ditch wasn’t in a wetland. The land use authorities declared it a wetland after the fact and charged him with a crime that did not exist. The judge was intent upon making an environmental example out of this hapless landowner who had done nothing wrong.
But let’s get back to the Center for Biological Diversity and the armed stand off by the Bundy militia at the Hammond Ranch in Southeastern Oregon. Shortly after the Bundy standoff commenced, the CFBD issued the following statement in their newsletter.
“The armed men who took over a federal building in southeastern Oregon are part of a long-running campaign of violence, intimidation and extremist paranoia that has festered for decades in the West over the issue of public lands — the previous standoff made in 2014 by Cliven Bundy in Nevada. Among the demands at the latest standoff is to shut down Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, which provides crucial protections for wildlife — especially birds that migrate through the area.
Members of the men’s group have said they’re willing to kill and be killed if necessary.
“This is the latest in a long string of armed, right-wing thugs attempting to seize America’s public lands and enact their paranoid, anti-government dream bought by guns and intimidation,” said the Center for Biological Diversity’s Kierán Suckling. “What’s happening in Oregon is a logical outgrowth of right-wing rhetoric that demonizes even the concept of federal land — places like national parks and forests — and villainizes those who believe that publicly owned land should be more than just a source of profit for ranchers and corporations.”
Examining these statements by CFBD reflects an extreme environmental bias and total ignorance of private property rights. Their use of “campaign of violence, intimidation and extremist paranoia” and “thugs” rhetoric subverts the principles upon which these armed patriots stand. They are constitutional principles, not some fly-by-night trivia.
Since the mid 1960’s national and international (UN) radical environmental policies have come in direct conflict with American constitutional principles. Environmental policies have won. The EPA, BLM and the US Fish and Wildlife are owned and operated, lock, stock and barrel, by environmental zealots. Local and state governments are staffed by environmentally brainwashed educated idiots from liberal colleges.
The Bundy Ranch armed standoff in 2014 and the current Hammond Ranch standoff in Oregon have been triggered by the freedom-robbing disease of radical environmentalism. Contrary to what the news is reporting, the current Bundy militia in Oregon DO NOT want to overthrow the government. They want constitutional justice for all rural landowners. Listen to what the Bundy standoff is really all about from KrisAnne Hall, a constitutional attorney, at this link.
These men and women and millions of rural Americans have seen the steady, unconscionable and unconstitutional erosion of the basic rights of property ownership in America and they have had enough. There is no alternative left for them but to draw a line in the sand.
We ask all of our readers to say what they would do if the government reached in without legal authority and took your home and your livelihood away from you, or burned your home down? What if they charged you with a trumped up crime and threw you in jail for five years? Would you just stand by and do nothing? It is way past time for rural landowners to stand up and lay it on the line.
The Bundy militia has done just that. They are the catalyst to light one big giant “brush fire” across the West. We hope they do.
The Bundy Ranch militia in Nevada in 2014 and now the armed standoff in Oregon is a direct threat to radical environmentalists and they know that if the rural landowner movement catches on, the “cat is out of the bag” and their political and financial power will start drying up, literally at the point of a gun. The Founding Fathers did not insert the Second Amendment into the Bill of Rights for hunting.
Although we do not support lawless acts, nevertheless, as a national advocate for rural landowners (NARLO) for the last 10 years, we applaud and support the Bundy militia standoff because they and we speak for rural landowners everywhere. We urge all Americans who believe in the principle causes of these brave men to send them well wishes. They need to know the people are behind them so that they can endure what is certain to come their way at the hands of the federal government, egged on by environmentalists like the CFBD. Send your well wishes addressed to Ammon Bundy, Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, 36391 Sodhouse Lane, Princeton, OR 97721. Do it today.
But the longer the Bundy militia occupy the federal building on the nature preserve in Oregon, the urgency rises for an armed engagement by an overwhelming federal military force against a puny militia. They may be “hit” before this article is in print. There are indications of a Special Ops Force headed to Oregon. Who will win is already pre-ordained. The potential for another Ruby Ridge or Waco to take place on American soil is possible, where the people, standing up for constitutional principles, are taken down by the government that is criminally, morally and constitutionally in the wrong.
If you really want to know the truth about the BLM vs. Hammond Ranch story, we strongly recommend that you listen to Greg Walden’s impassioned testimony on the floor of the U. S. House of Representatives. Walden is an Oregon Republican U. S. Congressman that represents the district where the Hammond’s live and he personally knows the Hammond’s. Watch the Video.
Now the reader might get the idea that we are anti-environment. Just the opposite is true.
The National Association of Rural Landowners’ (NARLO) motto is:
“Protecting the environment is laudable.
Trashing the Constitution to do it, is treasonous!”
The truth is, rural landowners are far better stewards of the land than ineffective, hopelessly corrupt government agencies that collude with national and international radical environmentalists to steal constitutionally protected property rights. The stories of government mis-management of federal lands are legendary and have caused billions of dollars in property and environmental damage. Need we mention EPA’s release of toxic substances into a Utah river from a mine they were managing? That release polluted an entire river drainage area all the way to the Colorado River. Did anyone get fired or go to jail? Of course not. It’s government.
Ladies and gentlemen, the brutal reality is that only a ground swell of national rural outrage, like the Bundy militia, will reverse the course of socialism and environmental extremism in America and return us to a Constitutional Republic. Farmers, ranchers and rural landowners can and should be the catalyst to incite that outrage because they are being required to bear the entire burden of environmental protection, while city folk get off scot-free. Rural landowners own the ‘land’ and the ‘land’ is their power, if they will use that power ……. before they lose it.
The NARLO website is a treasure trove of information for rural landowners. If you are a rural landowner, you owe it to yourself to investigate the hundreds of articles, valuable information and tools that exist there. Tell us your story and we will devote our weekly column to it. We even have developed a sample petition to help citizens in counties and cities to demand their city or county cancel the contracts with the United Nations International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). The petition is contained in Section “A”, Chapter A3 of NARLO’S Rural Landowner Handbook.
ICLEI consults with American cities and counties on how to plan for sustainable development and smart growth under the guidelines of Agenda 21 (1972 & 2012) and the Conference on Human Settlements, established in Vancouver in 1976. ICLEI is a Trojan Horse for international environmentalism and is an enemy of freedom and American constitutional property rights. Either fight this radical environmental monster or watch America slide into third world status where freedom and property rights are dictated by a King, or an Absolute Democrat Monarchy.

Gun-free zones are a magnet for those who want to kill many people quickly. Even the most ardent gun control advocate would never put “Gun-Free Zone” signs on their home. Let’s stop finally putting them elsewhere. – John Lott Jr.
Theorem: There are NO GUN FREE ZONES
“Gun Free Zones” are bounded regions where law abiding people are not allowed to be armed – formally being disarmed before entering. Gun Free Zones in Public Spaces (GFZPS) are a violation of the Constitution for the United States, violate many State Constitutions, and, more importantly, violate Natural Law.
The fundamental law is the foundation of our society. In the United States of America, it is the U.S. Constitution. Through this document, our fundamental rights are secured and protected against infringement by the federal government and by the State governments, because the States are also parties to this contract. – Paul Andrew Mitchell, “The Federal Zone”
No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it. [16 Am. Jur. 2d, Section 177; later 2d, Section 256]
The state of Nature has a law of Nature to govern it, which obliges every one, and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions. The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but to have only the law of Nature for his rule. John Locke
Gun Free Zones in Public Spaces are dangerous and, like cancer, can become a pathological process spreading ever widening areas, including cities, parks, government occupied buildings and properties. It can further metastasize over whole public regions including counties and States.
COMPETITION FOR PEACE AND SECURITY
Competition is a sin, therefore you must destroy it. John D. Rockefeller
The theory of natural monopoly is an economic fiction. No such thing as a ―natural monopoly has ever existed. The history of the so-called public utility concept is that the late 19th and early 20th-century ―utilities competed vigorously, and like all other industries, they did not like competition. They first secured government-sanctioned monopolies, and then, with the help of a few influential economists, they constructed an ex post facto rationalization for their monopoly power. . . . The theory of natural monopoly is a 19th-century economic fiction that defends 19th-century (or 18th-century, in the case of the U.S. Postal Service) monopolistic privileges and has no useful place in the 21st-century American economy. – June 14, 1995 at the CATO Institute conference examining the question Postal Service in the 21st Century: Time to Privatize? DiLorenzo, Thomas J.
It is an axiom: competition for solutions in the markets of human action produce outcomes maximizing the values which support mankind’s life and happiness.
Competitive forces maximize truth and transparency, while actively and invisibly minimizing deception, fraud and dissimulative activities which drain and dissipate the resources originally available for the problems.
Values necessary for human survival include Peace and Security, without out either, mankind cannot evolve as a community and in the long term he cannot exist.
Gun Free Zones reduce competition for peace and security. Proceeding with an analogy from economics, GFZPS have the same effect as cartel created monopolies, unnatural and forcibly defended barriers against competitors deliberately erected around lucrative high demand products such as medical drugs (legal) and recreational drugs (illegal), and services, such as the provision of security via police forces and law enforcement.
Unable to maintain their government-granted monopoly, the powerful railroad interests turned to government to do the regulating and price-fixing which they were unable to do themselves. In fact, the pressure that induced Congress to enact the Interstate Commerce Act of 1887 did not come from reformers bemoaning abuses by the powerful railroad interests; it came from the railroad interests themselves, asking Congress to shield them against the harsh winds of competition. – THE BUSINESS END OF GOVERNMENT (1973). Dan Smoot
Forcibly defended monopolies mean the only people and groups allowed to provide and profit from the monopolized products, or services, are cartel members (corporate or criminal gangs) or Government created gangs (police forces.) In the case of gun free zones, the only people carrying weapons (illegally) are criminals. Criminals of course are not bound by the laws of a monopoly because all observance of law is a voluntary decision and criminals do not, by definition, voluntarily observe the law.
THE IDEA OF A GUN FREE ZONE IS MAGICAL THINKING: MANY PEOPLE ARE ARMED IN GUN FREE ZONES
In a monopoly controlled Gun Free Zone, there still exists a market for peace and security, but market forces are nullified creating a vacuum of competing solutions which would provide life maximizing results. In this situation, cartel members and criminals are given exclusive control of peace and security and yet neither group has any personal concern or investment for return in those values. Legally armed cartel members are concerned with law abiding people remaining disarmed and criminals are also concerned with law abiding people remaining disarmed, however for the different reason of increasing their chances of committing lowered risk further crime. This is common sense and is consistent with natural law.
Natural Law can be discovered and even understood and it can only be violated at some cost. In the case of an individual’s ability to maximize his peace and security, Natural Law is clear, the Individual must be fully self-responsible, ie., he or she must be a competing market provider of peace and security, primarily focusing on preserving protecting their own.
Competition, properly so-called, rests on the activity of separate, independent individuals owning and exchanging private property in the pursuit of their self-interest. It arises when two or more such individuals become rivals for the same trade. Ayn Rand
However as an individual provides for his own peace and security and brings his solution to the market, others will too, and must, bring their solutions thereby maximizing the number of competitive solutions providing peace and security. As the number of armed people increases, the incidence of violence and crime, inversely, is reduced. In an invisible way, crime and anti-life activity is minimized for all as the number of competing solutions for peace and security increase.
COMPETETIVE MARKET IN WEAPONS
In the case of weapons it’s also axiomatic that to support the Natural Law of competing solutions maximizing peace and security, there must be a competitive market of weapons available to competitors. It would be an unnatural (monopolized) market if only criminals and cartel members could be armed with the most powerful or technologically superior weapons. Again, criminals and unbalancing agents of the enforced monopoly would have a competitive edge in this market and peace and security would again be reduced if there were not competitive weapons available to everyone in the market.
Thus it is important to recognize: calls for reducing or eliminating your access to the best possible weapons technology of the day, are really a deceptive call to unbalance the market for peace and security and place you at a disadvantage in terms of maximizing your peace and security.
Gun Bans and Restrictions on Weapons Are Market Destabilizing
Cartels and monopolies of force are often created as a result of criminal elements having eliminated or usurped third party representatives formerly considered to be functioning to increase your peace and security.
The Constitution of the United States, acting as a clarifier and preserver of Natural Law, explicated the Natural Law of Self
Defense. The Constitution did not make the Law, but was created to provide a legal framework wherein the government established by the document would have enumerated restrictions on how the government could legally act.
It’s clear that for a period of some years, the Constitution was a sufficient reminder and the court systems a sufficient deterrent against acting outside or in a manner inconsistent with Natural Law and the Laws restricting government action as codified in the Constitution.
But consistent with our understanding of how deception, fraud and unbalancing of coercion free markets is necessary for criminals, and those seeking enrichment not via successful and productive efforts but rather by enslaving or stealing from others, we can directly correlate the creation of monopolies in all profitable markets required by man with a violation of Natural Law (with costs distributed to all not benefitting from the monopoly) and hence violations of the Constitution for the United States.
The Constitution has now become powerless and no longer limits government action, but has been interpreted to limit the action of market actors; the market being all areas where men and women could and should rightly participate in commerce without coercive limitations on action.
One such area is in the market for peace and security. Criminals, now actually parties with legal rights or cartel rights inside the created monopolies, are restricting free and open competition for maximizing the values of peace and security.
It’s totally clear and fully transparent, gun free zones, proliferating in ever widening circles of enforcement, are spaces being made safe and for criminal activity, keeping in mind, criminals do not voluntarily recognize the legal restrictions of gun free zones.
Arming the people has the effect of creating competition in economic markets – With more and more people armed the competition for peace provides MAXIMUM PEACE. And by way of economic principles, it is not the actual competition (outwardly carrying guns) that reduces violence, but rather it is the threat of competition (possible conceal weapons on everyone) — the threat of people everywhere competitively armed – that reduces the violence and cost.. It is common sense and natural law.
We are now witnessing the government acting in a manner that is consistent with favoring criminals, unbalancing the market and institutionalizing violence and predation.
STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM
History records time and time again, institutions organizing, at first in service or as representatives for individuals acting in a way supposedly beneficial to individuals. This usually starts out as a system of providing quasi-market solutions for problems individuals find troublesome or uncomfortable creating solutions.
However, over time, criminal elements, psychopaths and their sycophants will begin to infiltrate and then escalate the number of services provided. Slowly at first, market solutions for many common problems are eliminated as government offers solutions sold as better than competitive services can provide.
People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. – Adam Smith
This process easily continues as people, especially European people , (read about white Pathological Altruism), are very trusting and readily handover responsibilities and tasks they find troublesome, labor intensive, or otherwise not pleasurable.
Over time these governments, Monarchies, or any system of controlling people begin to use fear, intimidation and the invention of problems for which they can provide monopoly solutions. Costly solutions that ultimately reduce peace and security as their veiled goal is really predation on those unbalanced toward a weaker position in the market place of human action.
But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary. Adam Smith
State Sponsored Terrorism is a natural and typical act of a fully evolving criminal, mentally ill, control system which attempts to surround populations in monopolies of force, eventually creating total gun free zones inside their nations, while terrorizing the people into giving up their competitive positions and, as criminals, preying on the unprotected individuals across all perceived dimensions of wealth and value.
These governments and their masters know peace and security are increased by individual competitors, using the most competitive weapons technology available, freely offering (un-coerced) competitive solutions in the marketplace.
Therefore, the only logical conclusion to be drawn is, the Government intends to do violent crimes against the people and naturally must reduce the number of firearms in the hands of the people to accomplish this goal.
State Sponsored Terrorism is nothing more than marketing, albeit ruthless, often bloody, and always immoral, by a control system in support of a monopoly in the market of solutions and services offering peace and security
Governments, collectivized gangs and pockets of mentally ill crime syndicates must still compete in the social and economic market place of human action in order to gain market share and market control. This is a fact most don’t understand, much or all of the evil and injustice done by one group to another is done with permission, either overtly or covertly via tacit acceptance of the products, services and contracts of an illicit defacto control system.
It’s not until, an organization within a market obtains a corner on the market that they can evolved into a fully coercive tyranny, closing the doors to any competition and then gouging takes places in areas of important services. This explains why the Obama Regime must continuously create false flag shootings in order to gain American’s permission to begin the process of disarming. After a certain number of people provide support for the idea, the monopoly will have enough power to force its barriers around all peoples: Time is short.
Gun Free Zones are the safe spaces where State sponsored terrorism can exist mostly unimpeded.
Gun Free Zones are action zones, State actors and criminal actors artificially causing market unbalancing legal restrictions on people’s ability to protect themselves. In the end, as all people are disarmed, the worst personality traits begin to monopolize the positions of authority in the control system until, a mentally ill monopoly of force begins its most egregious acts of terrorism, theft, rape and mass murder. This has been explored as the concept of Pathocracy wherein, organizations begin to populate with similar minded, mentally ill or psychopathic personality traits.
Communism is such a political system and, over its nearly 200 years of implementation, every expression of this malignant political system has exhibited mentally ill and psychopathic behaviors leaving misery and wealth destruction as its legacy.
When a government or system of control begins to demand it provide solutions for peace and security, not voluntarily, and when concomitantly, peace and security are reduced with violent and escalating attacks on people and property (and always “advertised” via a public media circus) you must immediately recognize the danger; the control system is marketing a mentally ill system of control.
At this moment in time we have an emergency situation. The acts of Terrorism against the people, ie., Oklahoma City bombing, 9-11, mass shootings like the Batman Movie Theatre shootings, with James Holmes or the Safeway Shooting with Jared Loughner, or the TOTALLY FAKED attacks like the Sandy Hook School Shooting and likely the Boston Bombing, and attacks which may have been faked like those recently in Paris and San Bernardino, **are only the beginning**. Because when the people can no longer provide for their own defense, then anything and everything will be done to them — history has shown.
ARGUMENTS FOR IRRATIONAL ACTORS
Many argue mass shooters are mentally ill and emotionally charged. Claiming such states of mind preclude rational thinking regarding the location of mass shooting. The Batman Shooter, James Holmes for example never mentioned in his notes or other clues the theatre’s ‘Gun Free Zone” policy had anything to do with his choice of venue for his “mass shooting”.
However, if one actually believes the Holmes shooting was not either encouraged, provocateured, engineered or otherwise influenced by State actors working toward an agenda of total disarmament of the American people, one has to realize by unintentionally choosing a “Gun Free Zone” Holmes was elevating his chances of not being shot while committing his crime. Further the death toll was statistically likely to be higher as a result of the “Gun Free Zone” location.
It was also claimed in a 2002 study right to carry laws have no effect on the location of a mass shooting (This study does not include recent data, refuting this claim.) But again, it is not the location a “right to carry” law should affect, it’s the elimination of a threat or shooting in progress that a Natural Law right to defend your life most certainly will affect.
Most Americans cannot wrap their head around the fact that most of the recent escalation of mass shootings is in some way influenced by the control system which is attempting to disarm Americans.
NATURAL LAW SOLUTIONS FOR REDUCING GUN AND OTHER VIOLENT CRIME
If the government actually cared about insuring the least number of causalities were caused by mass a shooting situation (or other violent crime), then it would have no choice but to recommend the Swiss system of arming and training all people to defend themselves.
Gun and weapons training could again be part of the education system and begin early in a child’s life resulting in self-assured less fearful people aware of the fact that a virtual police officer was everywhere – all the time – in the form of citizens equally armed and trained to respond.
Training people at a young age to use, respect and understand the importance and position, in a self-dependent individual’s life tool complement, is the most responsible, rational and mature way to ensure self-defense is a basic component of healthy state of mind and part of creating, from birth, healthy and self-dependent personality traits.
This system naturally reduces violent crimes, rapes, robberies, while minimizing damage due to mentally ill shooters who are not motivated to save their own lives in first place.
Creating a state of dependency in which others are to stand up for your life and to be available in your instantaneous moment of need is childish thinking; the magical thinking of an undeveloped state of consciousness. This is a condition deliberated created by those planning to exploit this vulnerability; public education is culpable and complicit in the devolution of adult states of mind.
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. Benjamin Franklin
Clearly Natural Law requires adult people take responsibility for their own lives, otherwise third parties, who are under no obligation to risk their lives for yours, will convince you to transfer your self-responsibility to them in exchange for protection. Transferring self-responsibility to another makes you a ward, a slave, beholden to another for your physical safety and, by induction, anything similar to safety, eventually transferring responsibility for whole classes of actions you are no longer rightfully allowed to take.
SILLY ARGUMENTS THAT GUNS IN HANDS OF THE PEOPLE DO NOT STOP TYRANNY
Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives. James Madison
There are many that argue (supporting their oppressors) guns in the hands of militias and the people could not have stopped the absolute torturous blood bath of the mentally ill Bolsheviks set loose on Russia by the European and American Jewry and other genocides prosecuted against defenseless peoples.
In the myopic article called Militia Myths the author makes the claim: A historical analysis reveals that Militias are typically the gateway to tyranny, not the safeguard against it. A heavily armed population has little to no bearing on preventing tyranny. and then gives examples of nations using a militia to throw off foreign aggressors only to create some new form of dictatorship afterwards. He cites examples of the liberating militias degenerating into tyrannies in countries like Vietnam, Afghanistan, Cuba, Somalia, Iraq, and southern Lebanon. The rest of the article makes similar claims about Bolshevik Russia and other nations where blood baths resulted when unarmed and untrained peoples fell victims to violent psychopaths.
The article referenced above is written by a person with absolutely no understanding, or apparent education regarding the psychologies and personality types of nations, races and cultures. Nations structured around forms of social heirarchy, having no long standing, historical and institutionalize protection of values, such as property rights, contract law, Individualism, Natural Law and other mainly Western values, as codified in common law principals, cannot be expected to create new governments or ruling bodies based on those values. Western culture (European white cultures) have for hundreds of years had an enlightened system of law and justice based on the Natural Law ideas of
1) Do all you have agreed to do – which is the basis of contract law;
2) Do not encroach on other persons and their property – which is the basis of criminal and tort law. Richard Maybury
Additionally, nations and their peoples with NO HISTORY of identifying and enshrining moral philosophical values preserving individual rights OR isolating governments from assimilating a religious dogma as part of its system of law, cannot expect some liberating internal militia to afterward “promote a Free State”. Again, this is childish or magical thinking, resulting in the formation of conclusions which are harmful to rational thought regarding maintaining peace and security and minimizing despotism, tyranny and mentally ill systems of control.
The cultures and governments of the East and, in fact, isolated and heavily influenced by Eastern immigrants, Czarist Russia, did not or do not possess a law based on Scientific Law, or Natural Law, but rather on Political law. As Richard Maybury aptly points out:
POLITICAL LAW IS BASED ON POLITICAL POWER.
It has no requirement for logic or morality. It changes whenever the political wind changes. Fickle and tangled, no one can completely understand it…. You do whatever the power-holders say, or else. Right or wrong.
This type of social structure will not allow or promote a system enabling individuals to grow and advance with an understanding of their right to self-defense and protection of their own property. To expect a “Free State” to just manifest after an untrained, either morally or philosophically, militia or organization of peoples with guns, throw off a given tyranny is just plain silly.
But in fact, Americans, mostly educated (as the educational system has been hobbled and purposely dumbed down) in a system of property rights, contract law, and the moral values of individualism, could easily and handily throw off tyrants and still retain the knowledge and understanding of how to reconstituted a system based on those principles of property rights, contract law and the common law (Natural Law) tenets of individual rights.
A skilled common law judge would try to make all his decisions logically consistent with the two fundamental laws. Common law was not only a private legal system, it was a scientific one. Abraham Lincoln considered `Euclid’s Geometry’ to be one of his most important law books; he studied it to be sure the logic of his cases was airtight.
One of the most important characteristics of common law was its certainty. It had evolved very carefully over many centuries, changing little from one decade to the next. The two fundamental laws remained always in place, a stabilizing force. The community could expect their legal environment to remain reasonably orderly. Richard Maybury]
It has been shown repeatedly armed citizens reduce causalities or prevent mass shootings.
The question for the American people, and not the usurped Federal or State Governments, is one of third party trust. Can
American’s expect their governments to protect them? Can American’s in light of all of human history, expect their governments to not become immoral, corrupt or tyrannical? Do Americans feel safe, even as their governments invite mostly fighting age males from Eastern nations having no moral or philosophical training or upbringing in the ways of a Limited Republic or a religiously unconcerned system of control based on common law, including property rights and individual rights? Do American’s feel safer disarmed as their own country is being overrun by criminals, former terrorists, rapists and people with other undesirable characteristics, a people that are not going to assimilate and become Western, but are rather going to struggle non-stop to make America more Eastern.
Will Americans feel safer disarmed as a financial collapse of proportions never experienced in America, deliberately caused by the financial looting of a criminal banking system and the vitiated corporate monopolies they licensed, creates armies of hungry, homeless and outraged people forced to take to the streets looking for answers and shelter from the banker’s caused financial nuclear winter?
The Government, their corporate masters and the criminal banking families behind them all are desperate to be sure Americans do not throw off their intended tyranny and restore a Natural Law system of government and reinvigorate the moral justice system that was once America and finally come after those who have attempted, with extreme hubris, to collapse civilization and rebirth it into a deformed, mentally ill, fledging New World Tyranny.
MY CONCLUSION: Hold On To Your Guns Like Your Life Depends On Them.
Please read more than once as Mr. Mullen’S make this situation clear as a bell. If you want something done your way, doing it yourself always works. Never trust a government, as history proves they always screw the people. Be ready and capable of defending your life no matter where you may be.
