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

As grassroots opposition to the internet censorship bills known as SOPA and PIPA continues to build, the entertainment industry and their allies in Congress are scrambling to move them forward as quickly as possible. Here’s a quick update on where things stand at the moment.
PIPA is officially the top item on the agenda for when the Senate returns from the holiday recess. During their final day in session last week, Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid [D, NV] submitted a cloture petition, signed by 18 Democratic senators, on the motion to proceed to the bill, setting up a vote to occur no earlier than one hour after the Senate adjourns on the second calendar day after the motion is filed. According to the Congressional Record, that will be January 24th at 2:15 p.m. ET.
The motion will take a supermajority of 60 votes to be approved. The bill already has 41 co-sponsors, so the supporters only need 19 more to pass the motion. So far, only 4 senators have come out solidly against the bill — Sen. Ron Wyden [D, OR], Sen. Rand Paul [R, KY], Sen. Jerry Moran [R, KS], and Sen. Maria Cantwell [D, WA].
Sen. Wyden is leading an attempt to stop the cloture vote from taking by planning to basically shut down the Senate floor with a reading of the names of more than 1 million individuals who have signed a petition against the bill. The plan is to eat up as much floor time as possible and see if they can stall things long enough that Reid will withdraw his motion and give up on holding the vote. The three other senators who have already come out against the bill may help Wyden execute the reading, but they’ll probably need even more help if they hope to keep things tied up for long enough to win. It’s basically going to come down to a physical question of how long they can hold the floor. If there are 4 of them, holding the floor around the clock is pretty difficult. But if there are 10 it will be a lot easier.
If Reid waits out the Wyden filibuster and the cloture motion ends up being approved, the bill will almost certainly win final passage from the Senate later that week. Final passage only requires a bare majority of 51 votes, and 60 senators will have already shown tacit support for the in voting to approve cloture on the motion to proceed. Reid has taken $1,383,541 from corporations and special interests supporting SOPA and PIPA this year — more than any other member of Congress — and he seems to be highly motivated to get the bill passed. Don’t expect him to give into the Wyden filibuster too easily.
Last week, the House Judiciary Committee, which is chaired by lead SOPA sponsor Rep. Lamar Smith [R, TX-21], held a marathon, 15+ hour mark-up session on the bill. Dozens of amendments were voted on, and every single amendment to improve the bill for its opponents was rejected by a wide margin, including one to take China-style DNS blocking out of the bill. But the bill itself never got a vote. During the morning of day two of the mark-up session, Smith suddenly announced that he was going to postpone the vote.
The mark-up and vote was originally scheduled to continue tomorrow morning, but now that too has been postponed by Smith, citing the schedule of the House (having voted down the Senate’s tax cut bill, the House is now adjourned). At this point, we won’t see action on the House side until late January or early February. It’s even possible that the mark-up vote will be delayed until the committee can hold hearing with security experts about how the bill could increase U.S. exposure cyberattacks.
The main reason the mark-up is postponed, however, is that the folks from all corners of the internet have risen up in a grassroots, cross partisan effort to fight this bill and the members of Congress who support it. As I wrote last week, the online uprising against the bill is itself a perfect example of what’s wrong with the bill, as many of the sites that have facilitated the uprising would be vulnerable to censorship under SOPA/PIPA. The bill’s supporters had been trying to ignore and suppress the very legitimate security and free speech concerns of the internet experts, legal scholars, human rights groups, and web companies that oppose the bill. But all the attention online, and the millions of calls and emails to Congress, simply made them impossible to ignore.
As of this moment, the mark-up has not been rescheduled. My guess, though, would be that Rep. Smith was put it back on the schedule for some time shortly after the House reconvenes on January 18th.
The January recess is going to be a crucial time for the bill’s future. If SOPA/PIPA opponents can flip some on-the-fence senators and reps. to solid “no” votes and get a few more to join the filibuster, there’s a good chance these bills can be killed. The momentum is certainly going against internet censorship at the moment, but a quick look at the 91 corporations and special interests behind the bills should be enough to show that if the public sleeps on this, there is a huge network of money and influence ready to push things back in the other direction.
|House GOP Paints Itself Into a Corner on Payroll Taxes
Posted: 20 Dec 2011 02:51 AM PST
The Senate, having voted 89-10 to approve an extension of payroll tax cuts, unemployment benefits and dome other policies that are scheduled to expire on January 1st, has recessed for the year and gone home for the holiday recess. All that the House has to do to make the bill officially ready to be signed into law is hold a simple up-or-down vote on the Senate’s bipartisan bill. But during a 3 a.m. meeting of the House Rules Committee last night, the Republican majority devised a different plan — twist the voting procedure so that the Senate’s bill can be rejected while allowing the Republicans to save face by technically voting “aye.”
David Dayen at FDL News Desk reports:
The procedural wizards in the House Republican caucus stayed up late last night to concoct this scheme, a way to dispose of the Senate’s payroll tax deal by voting affirmatively. They think this helps insulate their members from charges of rejecting the deal, and causing a tax increase of on average $1,000 a year. Here’s how it’ll go down:
Instead of putting the deal up for a vote, they will vote to call a conference committee with Senate negotiators to reconcile their poison pill-laden bill with the Senate bill that received 89 votes. Then they will pass a “motion to instruct conferees” that will essentially tell them to pass their version of the bill. The minority will have the opportunity to enter their own motion to instruct conferees, but in all likelihood that will be voted down.
Remember, these are the same Republicans that cried holy hell during the “deem and pass” era, when Democrats tried to pass the health care bill without actually passing it. Now they’re trying the same thing, so that when their members are confronted over this vote, they can have this exchange:
Democrat: You voted to increase taxes on the middle class.
Republican: No I didn’t, I voted to send our bill to conference. It’s not my fault that the Senate didn’t show up! (flash toothy grin).
House Republicans say they oppose the bipartisan Senate bill because it only extends the payroll tax cuts for two months. But the Democrat-led Senate has been trying for months to get the Republicans to support a longer-term extension. The Republicans have repeatedly rejected the Senate’s offers, first demanding that the tax cut be offset (a huge flip-flop), then that nobody who makes over $1 million sees an increase in their taxes (thereby risking a large tax increase on the middle class), and then that a provision related to the Keystone XL oil pipeline be attached to the legislation. At this point, the Senate has agreed to give in to both of those demands, but only for long enough to keep the payroll tax cuts in effect while they negotiate a longer deal. That’s what the Republicans will be rejecting today, while trying to obscure the procedure and make it look like they’re the ones being pro-active.

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

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

Our bloated, out-of-control government entities work only for their own growth/perpetuation. Mexico exploits its poverty-ridden citizens by encouraging them to invade the U.S. in order to receive billions in remittances. Socialists/Communists/Fascists work to destroy the work of our Founders. Corporations work to exploit cheap slave labor. Religions work to increase their parishioners/funding, and the “education” system works to destroy the last vestiges of certain concepts such as rugged individualism, personal responsibility, personal excellence, merit, and earned self-esteem.
The path we are on is mass suicide. We send our youth to blow up foreign countries, protect their borders and leave ours wide open to every kind of scum on earth. While the rest of the world grows to hate us for the untold damage/murder we do, the U.S. citizen is left at the mercy of so many dangers too numerous to list in this venue.
We are expected to welcome invaders who have no respect for our laws, heritage, or culture and to pay for their healthcare, babies, welfare, incarceration, housing, education, etc. lest we be called racist, while expected to bow to such organizations as Mexican La Raza (TheRACE).
Political Correctness is doing its job, it is murdering Western Civilization. The Cultural Marxists are winning…we are headed back to the jungle with little resistance because of the loss of our Founding Concepts. The Enlightenment has been snuffed, which means the death of individual freedom. The 3rd World will engulf us as the Barbarians did Rome.
No one will gain except the elite few who hold the reins of power, and history repeats itself over and over, always to the detriment of individual life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our nation had its chance and squandered it, pity the young and those to come.

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

December 10, 2011
Are you sure there are two competing sides in the American battle for freedom and liberty? Or are those two sides in the battle pushing towards the same end?
The progressive left in America is openly selling socialism now, openly selling Americans the notion that freedom doesn’t work. They are no longer operating in the shadows, but rather right up in your face. However, does the so-called “resistance” have any different end agenda? If they are selling “democracy,” they too are selling socialism! WAKE UP!
Our Founding Fathers did not form a democracy and for very good reason. As Thomas Jefferson explained, Democracy is mob rule, wherein 51% of the people can vote to take away the rights of the other 49%. When 51% of Americans no longer pay income taxes, guess how they will vote and where does that leave the other 49%, the taxpayers?
The father of socialism, Karl Marx, told us that “Democracy is the road to socialism.” Fact is — pure democracy is socialism. “Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives.”
So, how can you tell the difference between false opposition and real resistance? For starters, anyone promoting “democracy” as opposed to our Founders “Constitutional Representative Republic” is false opposition. They may create the illusion of opposing socialism, but by promoting “democracy” they are in fact promoting socialism. If the word democracy comes out of their mouth every time they talk about America, they are NOT a “constitutional conservative.”
Marx referred to the common people as the proletariat. "The proletariat is that class in society which lives entirely from the sale of its labor power and does not draw profit from any kind of capital; whose weal and woe, whose life and death, whose sole existence depends on the demand for labor…” – In America, intended to be a classless society of individuals free to self-govern, this working class group was labeled the “middle class.”
Under communist, socialist, Marxist, fascist, otherwise known as totalitarian concepts, the working class or proletariat is to have so-called control over all aspects of society including the economy and property rights. Of course, they do not have actual control, because in order to seize control they must institute excessive government powers to control it all on their behalf.
How many times over the last few years have we heard politicos argue over whether our despotic Federal Government is communist or fascist? Are the people having this debate unaware of the fact that communism and fascism are the same thing?
Our Founding Fathers knew that totalitarianism under all of its modern progressive labels is the opposite of freedom. Freedom and liberty are based solely upon individual rights as opposed to the collective rights of any group.
Communism is fascism and fascism is communism. So why are people debating which despotic form of totalitarianism has gripped our nation? Are they ignorant of history, or are they a false opposition busy muddying the water for those who would otherwise become serious resisters to both?
America has four kinds of enemies today…
1. Foreign enemies that have had their sights on American sovereignty and supremacy since the day our Declaration of Independence was written in 1776.
2. An overt enemy within, a Fifth Column sympathetic to foreign enemies and operating within our own government, political parties, media, academia and entertainment industry.
3. A covert enemy operating as false opposition under the guise of resisters, with the same end agenda as the enemies above.
4. The useful idiot, who means well but is just as dangerous, dumbed down beyond the point of recognizing and understanding even the most fundamental truths. This is the proletariat…who know not, what they do.
All four types of enemies must be confronted in order to save our Constitutional Representative Republic.
In any society, the commoners, the workers, will greatly outnumber the elites, the business owner, the corporate executive, professionals, the investors and entrepreneurs. In a Constitutional Representative Republic, every individual has equal right of self-determination. But in a democracy, the mob will rule over the minority and the masses have the power to take away individual rights for the “greater good” of the collective community. This is also known as socialism and in its extreme, communism.
For over a hundred years, America has fed more than 80% of the nations in the world, as those nations experimented with varying forms and degrees of socialism or outright communism.
Today, that nation that once fed the world will soon no longer be able to feed itself.
Instead of spreading freedom and liberty around the globe so that nations could learn to one day feed themselves, America has adopted the concept of democracy and socialism from abroad. The very things our Founding Fathers separated from in 1776 now have a death grip on America a brief 235 years later.
In terms of political ideologies and government design, at the extreme left is communism/fascism – and at the extreme right is total freedom, also known as anarchy, or a completely lawless society.
America has the perfect balance for a maximum degree of individual freedom and liberty within the boundaries of an organized and civilized society — a Constitutional Representative Republic, if we can find a way to keep it.
A Constitutional Representative Republic is a form of self-governance.
This concept begins with individual rights, under Natural Law, the Laws of Nature, known as The Law of Nations, in which each individual has the freedom and liberty to govern their own lives.
That idea is followed by the design for a government system of, by and for the people, which is very limited in scope and power to the functions, assigned it by the people and their sovereign states, via the U.S. Constitution.
The U.S. Constitution is not an enumeration of the people’s rights. It is a compact (or contract) between the people, the states and our Federal Government, assigning certain specific and limited powers to the Federal Government for benefit of the people and the states.
Our Bill of Rights is not an enumeration of the people’s rights. It is a list of protections for the people and their states, against the eventuality of a bloated and overbearing Federal Government which begins to act at odds with its people and their states.
The greatest threat to our Constitution and Representative Republic today is the sad fact that most Americans no longer know anything of their history. They are therefore, ill-equipped to protect the future of freedom and liberty.
Being forever vigilant requires knowing what we are to be forever vigilant about, and how to be forever vigilant. If you don’t know or respect the Constitution, you cannot protect the Constitution. If you don’t know your rights, you cannot protect your rights. If you know what to do but lack the intestinal fortitude to do it, then your nation is also doomed.
Who will save America?
It won’t be our foreign enemies, our enemies operating with our own government, media, academia and entertainment, our enemies running false opposition under the guise of a resistance, or even the useful idiots too dumbed down to know the vital difference between democracy and a Constitutional Representative Republic.
Combined, these four categories of enemies now make up a majority in America. It reminds me of a column I published in October of 2006, When 51-49 Becomes 49-51. The column warned of reaching the point of no return in America, when the proletariat not paying income taxes in America would outnumber American taxpayers, and forever thereafter, vote to enslave American taxpayers to support their notions of a greater good. There is no good on earth greater than freedom!
Democracy is socialism… It no longer requires any imagination to figure out what is happening in the systematic dismantling of America via Democratic Socialism, often referred to today as progressivism.
People, who attack freedom and liberty in the name of a greater communal good, are not constitutionalists.
People, who attack economic freedom and liberty by attacking free-market capitalism, are not American.
While we’re at it, social justice is the exact opposite of real justice under the equal application of law. It picks favorites and uses the power of government to destroy some Americans for benefit of other Americans.
People selling democracy are selling socialism, plain and simple. They will deny it, because they either know it, or don’t know it. But the truth never changes despite the denials. Marx, Stalin, Lenin, Hitler – they all knew it. Many Americans don’t…
Will the Tea Party save this nation? Many in the Tea Party are false opposition, pretenders and profiteers. Many others simply don’t know any better. All are as dangerous to America as the progressive socialists on the left they claim to oppose.
Look no further than the current use of modern history text books used in American public schools today, written by lifelong communist Howard Zinn, who often referred to himself as a libertarian.
Zinn was a radical playwright, teacher, anti-war activist and self-proclaimed historian. He was also a member of the Communist Party who wrote history books now used in American public schools. The common thread in today’s libertarian movement is its anti-war stance and anti-war protesters like Adam Kokesh, Code Pink and MoveOn.org.
The point is this – the lines between friend and foe has been intentionally and purposefully blurred.
We are not just fighting the enemies we can all see, we are also fighting enemies who look and speak just like us. Between 2008 and 2010, even Obama and Pelosi learned Tea Party talking points.
It wasn’t honest constitutional conservatives who came up with the star fish insanity that all American patriots should work in twenty-thousand competing factions so that no real resistance could ever build across the nation. That notion was planted in the Tea Party movement by people intending to keep all of those competing factions divided and impotent.
Do you even have the intellectual honesty to ask yourself the right questions anymore?
Why are Romney, Bachmann, Paul and Huntsman running from a GOP debate in front of mega-capitalist Donald Trump? They can’t buy this kind of campaign opportunity for any amount of money. So why are these candidates running from Trump? They want the job of confronting the world’s most vicious enemies, but can’t face the Donald? Why didn’t they have the same opposition to debating in front of known leftist network progressives on numerous occasions? Why are these candidates friendlier towards leftist media personalities than successful businessman Donald Trump? What are they afraid of?
Corporations didn’t run this country into the ground, our federal government did. So, why are so-called libertarians masquerading as conservatives, attacking corporate America, where private sector employment is created?
Whose side are they really on, the private sector or the public sector? There is no in-between… Everyone opposes criminal activity. Nobody in their right mind would defend criminal enterprise – but the biggest criminal enterprise in America today is not corporate America, it is our Federal Government.
By the way, a constitutionalist saying that Article II isn’t worthy of utmost concern is akin to a Christian saying the New Testament isn’t worthy. If you don’t care about Article II, what parts of the Constitution do you care about?
This is the reality that must set in with every American patriot before they will be able to mount any real resistance to the ongoing dismantling of America.
An easy tell for friend or foe is if one promotes democracy vs. a Constitutional Representative Republic… attacks free-market capitalism or the runaway Federal Government dismantling America at breakneck speed…?
Before we can confront our many enemies, we must first know who they are. And then we must unite and fight together against all of them, or we will lose the battle for freedom and liberty and we will lose it very soon. That loss will come at a price unimaginable to most Americans.
Think it can’t happen here? Think it isn’t happening right in front of your eyes? WAKE UP PEOPLE!
Our enemies have a hundred-year head start and they are not only smart, they are devious.
Unless the American patriot is smarter and more committed to winning than our enemies, we will lose. We are already past the point of turning this thing around via national elections. Soon, we will be past the point of being able to save our own states, much less the nation.
WAKE UP! Rely on no one to educate you, educate yourself! Begin with understanding that passive resistance is not resistance at all. Resistance requires ACTION!
Then, unite with others who get it and stop wasting time and resources on people who will never get it, or get it too late.
Democracy is socialism, dummy. Talk of our “democracy” should throw up big red flags, no matter what room you are in at the time or who else is there with you.
To defeat socialism in America, you will have to defeat it in all its forms under all of its modern labels. You can’t do it alone, nobody can. Get in the game! Nobody can afford to sit this one out!

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

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

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

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

landdestroyer.blogspot.com – 2011-11-15
The "Free Syria Army" is literally an army of militant extremists, many drawn not from Syria's military ranks, but from the Muslim Brotherhood, carrying heavy weapons back and forth over the Turkish and Lebanese borders, funded, supported, and armed by the United States, Israel, and Turkey. The latest evidence confirming this comes in the form of a report out of the International Institute for Strategic Studies which clearly states that Syria's opposition is armed and prepared to drag Syria into more violence.
This report comes in sharp contrast to the propaganda fed via the corporate-media and the West's foreign ministers on a daily basis, where the violence is portrayed as one-sided, with Syria's President Bashar al-Assad "gunning down" throngs of peaceful, placard waving protesters. Just as in Libya where these so-called "peaceful protesters" turned out to be hordes of genocidal racist Al Qaeda mercenaries, led by big-oil representatives, fighting their cause upon a verified pack of lies, so too is Syria's "pro-democracy" movement which is slowly being revealed as yet another militant brand of extremists long cultivated by Anglo-American intelligence agencies, whose leadership is harbored in London and Washington and their foot soldiers supplied a steady stream of covert military support and overt rhetorical support throughout the compromised corporate media.
The unrest in Syria from the beginning was entirely backed by Western corporate-financier interests and part of a long-planned agenda for region-wide regime change. Syria has been slated for regime change since as early as 1991. In 2002, then US Under Secretary of State John Bolton added Syria to the growing "Axis of Evil." It would be later revealed that Bolton's threats against Syria manifested themselves as covert funding and support for opposition groups inside of Syria spanning both the Bush and Obama administrations.
In an April 2011 CNN article, acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner stated, "We're not working to undermine that [Syrian] government. What we are trying to do in Syria, through our civil society support, is to build the kind of democratic institutions, frankly, that we're trying to do in countries around the globe. What's different, I think, in this situation is that the Syrian government perceives this kind of assistance as a threat to its control over the Syrian people."
Toner's remarks came after the Washington Post released cables indicating the US has been funding Syrian opposition groups since at least 2005 and continued until today.
In an April AFP report, Michael Posner, the assistant US Secretary of State for Human Rights and Labor, stated that the "US government has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments." The report went on to explain that the US "organized training sessions for 5,000 activists in different parts of the world. A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there." Posner would add, "They went back and there's a ripple effect." That ripple effect of course is the "Arab Spring," and in Syria's case, the impetus for the current unrest threatening to unhinge the nation and invite in foreign intervention.
With planted "speculation" running through the corporate media that a recent explosion, amongst several other "incidents" in Iran, were the work of Western covert operations, and the Jerusalem Post all but admitting the entire Western-backed destabilization in Syria aims not at ushering in "democracy" or upholding "human rights," but to weaken Iran by proxy, it is clear that everything within Wall Street and London's power is being done to provoke Iran. Iran has downplayed the recent explosion at their military base as an accident and has thus far maintained a persistent patience in the face of criminal provocations and overt acts of war by an alarmingly and increasingly depraved West.
It is quite clear that the stratagems spelled out in the corporate-funded Brookings Institute report "Which Path to Persia?" have been read and understood by both sides and that Iran realizes that any act of retaliation not expertly played, only gives the West what it has stated it wants – an excuse to go to war with the Islamic Republic. Should the public in Syria, Iran, and throughout the West also read "Which Path to Persia?" and realize that the only threat Iran and its allies pose to the West is toward the extraterritorial ambitions of Wall Street and London, perhaps a bloody, entirely unnecessary war can be avoided, and the first steps taken toward dismantling the parasitic corporate-financier oligarchy that has misled the world for the past several decades.
It’s about time the American flag waving emotional patriots wake up to the fact that our banker owned government has been manipulating their loyalty to America, and making deluded supporters of global tyranny out of them, while the naïve taxpayer foots the bill for their own eventual loss of everything they hold dear. This has been the most successful brain washing experiment ever fostered on humanity. Let the reader fully understand that the banker owned media industry has been manipulating your opinions since you were still pissing your pants, and they are masters at it. While they simultaneously badger you to accept different cultures as having every right to live and procreate anywhere they want and keep their own culture intact, they are making global racist out of you with their claims of genocide committed by other nations who they have also manipulated, with your money! And you wonder why so many Nations hate us! I’m seventy one years old and this crap has been going on long before I was born, and I am now convinced this Nation has never fought in a justified war. They have all been the result of Banker/government manipulation of the masses, for the soul purpose of consolidating their power over Nations and making obscene profits from it. All of this “we are hero’s” bullshit, is an admission of our stupidity from being so easily manipulated into becoming murderers of innocent people. WHEN WILL HUMANITY WAKE UP AND KILL THE INTERNATIONAL BANKING CARTEL, AND THE SCUMBAG POLITICIANS, INSTEAD OF EACH OTHER?

Adding to last night’s BBC spot of Mr. Rastani’s truth-telling, we have yet another experienced market trader telling the full-amount of truth:
Here is a piece from ZeroHedge.com that hopefully will make you all understand, once and for all, that this ain’t the 1930′s, and that there is absolutely no way in hell that this Republic is going to make it to November 2012.
Five Banks Account For 96% Of The $250 Trillion In Outstanding US Derivative Exposure; Is Morgan Stanley Sitting On An FX Derivative Time Bomb?
Summary: The five largest banks in the U.S. (JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and HSBC) are carrying $238 TRILLION dollars in derivative exposure. JP Morgan alone is carrying $78 TRILLION in derivative exposure BY ITSELF.
Okay, what the hell is derivative exposure? What this is referring to are over-the-counter non-exchange traded forward delivery (or “futures”) contracts of various kinds. I am a futures broker, but I only execute futures contracts on the futures exchanges, namely the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the New York Mercantile Exchange. About ten years ago a new “novelty” emerged in the futures business – the so-called “over-the-counter” contracts. There was a kid in the office I worked in who got wind of this and had all kinds of stars in his eyes about making a killing off of these “OTC” contracts because the brokers’ commissions were not a flat fee but a percent of the contract value. Here’s the problem with OTC contracts: there is no exchange standing between the buyer and seller as a guarantor.
In my business, when a customer executes a trade on a futures or options contract, it makes no difference who the other guy is on the other side of the trade, be it executed electronically or in the pit. None of us have to worry for a second about the counterparty on our executions because the EXCHANGE ITSELF stands between ALL transactions as the ultimate guarantor. The exchange then enforces the financial requirement rules with the Clearing Houses, the Clearing Houses enforce the financial requirement rules with the brokers, and the brokers enforce the financial requirement rules with the customers. That is the chain of financial responsibility. So, even if a customer bugs out and fails to financially perform on a contract, the contract WILL BE MADE GOOD by extracting the money from the broker, then the Clearing House and finally the Exchange. This massive enforcement buffering is what gives the system integrity.
OTC contracts have no exchange. They are a flipping free-for-all. If someone bugs out on a contract, the poop hits the fan. The counterparty has their pants around their ankles and the broker is caught in the middle. That’s why when that kid in my office years ago got all starry-eyed, I thought to myself, “I wouldn’t do that OTC crap if you put a gun to my head – no matter what the commissions were. It would be Russian Roulette. Eventually someone would default and it would financially destroy the broker instantly, and perhaps the counterparty as well.”
Let’s take my business – cattle futures. One contract is 40,000 pounds of live cattle. The spot contract settled at $119.725 per hundred pounds today. So, 40,000 pounds X $1.19725 (shift the decimal) = $47,890 total value of the contract. Since this is an exchange traded instrument, the customer doesn’t really have to worry about default and can go ahead and book that $47,890 today, and it will be offset at a later time, and the net of the entry and exit will be the P&L. The contract isn’t going to default, so the derivative exposure is limited.
Okay. These banks are carrying these OTC futures contracts with NO exchange to guarantee anything. And they are carrying these contracts largely WITH EACH OTHER. So JP Morgan might be the long and Goldman Sachs, or some insolvent bank in Europe is the short on the other side. If these banks default, which is now a mathematical certainty because they are not only insolvent, but insolvent multiple times over and there isn’t enough money in the world to bail them out, there is going to be a cascading default on all of these OTC contracts.
Now look at the value and exposure of these OTC derivatives again: the top 5 banks in the US alone have exposure of $238 TRILLION dollars.
The total GDP of the United States is $14.5 Trillion.
The total GDP of China is $6 Trillion.
The total land mass on earth is 36.8 billion acres. If every acre of land on earth was “sold” for $6467 per acre, that would total $238 Trillion.
JP Morgan BY ITSELF has derivative exposure equal to over FIVE TIMES the value of the entire US GDP.
And no, there will not be a 1:1 offsetting in a collapse, because the collapse will be asymmetrical, and the bankrupt party will first pursue FULL payment on its “longs” (think of these as accounts receivables) while its “shorts” (accounts payable) will only pay out 20 cents on the dollar OR LESS. In other words, these entities will tear each other apart in a mad dogfight and this dogfight will take the entire world down with it.
TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY-EIGHT TRILLION DOLLARS.
AND THAT IS JUST FIVE BANKS.
AND THE MASSIVELY CORRUPT AND INCOMPETENT SECURITIES REGULATORS, BOTH GOVERNMENTAL AND PRIVATE, SAT BY AND WATCHED THIS HAPPEN. That is what happens when you let a group of criminals run a bureaucracy of affirmative action hires to “audit” the financial industry. Scroll down and read my post titled “There Must Be A Reckoning.”
It’s over. There is no coming back from this. The only thing that can happen is a total and complete collapse of EVERYTHING we now know, and humanity starts from scratch. And if you think that this collapse is going to play out without one hell of a big hot war, you are sadly, sadly mistaken.
Ann Barnhardt – Barnhardt Capital Management, Inc.
I’m going to add to what Ann has explained so well:
By the end of 2007, all the Too-Big-to-Fail (TBTF) banks were writing these things hand-over-fist because they already knew they were in doo-doo. All this did was put massive leverage into the system…..debt, leveraged upon debt, with no asset value behind much of it. And here is where it gets truly ugly for my conservative friends who refuse to look at Wall Street as the criminals they are: THEY DID THIS KNOWING FULL WELL THE MAJORITY OF THE DERIVATIVES THEY WERE CREATING WERE FRAUDULENT AND BACKED BY NOTHING. How do I know this? A myriad of lawsuits filed all over the country with a literal smitton of depositions on discovery. These are not lawsuits filed by merely disgruntled foreclosure victims; these are lawsuits filed by large insurance companies like Allstate and MetLife, and even The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFH) because they all realized far too late that they’d been sold worthless crap. This is not to mention how adamantly the TBTFs have lobbied against any whiff of the idea of forcing these things onto an exchange where they would be made transparent. That’s pretty much a tipoff that they’re hiding something very bad. If the used car salesman won’t let you look under the hood, you can be pretty sure there’s something there you won’t like much.
The idea Wall Street had here with creating these fraudulent pieces of toxic waste was that if even a fraction of these ‘paid out’ for them, they could ‘save themselves.’ Unfortunately this doesn’t work when Wall Street runs out of suckers; you know, pension plans, insurance companies, retail investors and other places they could sell these things to without anyone understanding what they were buying. Most importantly, when they ran out of suckers they could put into home loans they couldn’t afford, this was the beginning of the end and the whole scheme began to unravel.
Even better, our government not only looked the other way when they were made aware of what was going on, they began to aid and abet the criminal activity….because the TBTFs convinced the government that ‘economic meltdown could be avoided’ if they were just given time for the ‘asset values to come back.’ THIS whole game was facilitated by none-other than Hank Paulson. You know, ‘Mr-I-Have-A-Bazooka.’
Our entire global economy is a giant Ponzi Scheme. Makes Social Security look like a rounding error. This also gives one a better perspective on the stock market movements. (Yeah, 400 point Dow Jones Industrial ranges in a day is a ‘stable market’.) What the market is now is merely the TBTF banks chasing government cheese. Where is the next bailout coming from? Wherever they THINK it is (and since they push for it, they have a good idea), they front run it and pile in, using HFT to try to position better than the next TBTF. Who is going to get the next ‘exemption from the law’? Wherever they think THAT is coming next, again, they go ‘all-in’ – thus providing the massive swings in the market with both bonds (treasuries and corporate debt) and stocks. Any idea that there is ANYTHING left of a ‘free-market’ is a LIE. Wake up and smell the Ponzi conservatives, and stop defending the criminals with your cries of ‘it’s anti-capitalist to protest against Wall Street.’ It’s not about your neighbor getting a free house, it’s about massive, global, legalized financial rape.
Wall Street a/k/a the Too-Big-To-Fails are chasing corruption. They’re chasing legalized theft sanctioned by our government and you can watch it in real-time every day….just pull up a stock chart. Any stock chart.
Have a nice day.
Perhaps now you will start screaming STOP THE LOOTING & START PROSECUTING!

By Paul Kincaid
Pope meeting with the board of directors of The Vatican Bank
Since 1871 the United States president and the United States Congress has been playing politics under a different set of rules and policies. The American people do not know that there are two Constitutions in the United States. The first penned by the leaders of the newly independent states of the United States in 1776. On July 4, 1776, the people claimed their independence from Britain and Democracy was born. And for 95 years the United States people were free and independent. That freedom ended in 1871 when the original “Constitution for the united states for America” was changed to the “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”.
The Congress realized that the country was in dire financial straits, so they made a financial deal with the devil – international bankers — (in those days, the Rothschilds of London ) thereby incurring a DEBT to said bankers. The conniving international bankers were not about to lend the floundering nation any money without some serious stipulations. So, they devised a way of taking back control of the United States and thus, the Act of 1871 was passed. With no constitutional authority to do so, Congress created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia.
With the passage of “the Act of 1871” a city state (a state within a state) called the District of Columbia located on 10 sq miles of land in the heart of Washington was formed with its own flag and its own independent constitution – the United States’ secret second constitution.
The flag of Washington’s District of Columbia has 3 red stars, each symbolizing a city state within the three city empire. The three city empire consists of Washington D.C., London, and Vatican City. London is the corporate center of the three city states and controls the world economically. Washington’s District of Columbia city state is in charge of the military, and the Vatican controls it all under the guise of spiritual guidance. Although geographically separate, the city states of London, the Vatican and the District of Columbia are one interlocking empire called “Empire of the City”
The constitution for the District of Columbia operates under tyrannical Vatican law known as “Lex Fori” (local law). When congress passed the act of 1871 it created a separate corporation known as THE UNITED STATES and corporate government for the District of Columbia. This treasonous act has unlawfully allowed the District of Columbia to operate as a corporation outside the original constitution of the United States and in total disregard of the best interests of the American citizens.
POTUS Obama at the Vatican Corporate headquarters
POTUS is the Chief Executive (president) of the Corporation of the United States operating as any other CEO of the corporation — governs w/a Board of Directors (cabinet officials) and managers (Senators/Congress) Obama as others before him is POTUS — operating as “vassal king” taking orders once again from “The City of London” through the RIIA (Royal Institute of Intl Affairs). The Illuminati (founded by the The Society of Jesus or Jesuits, the largest Roman Catholic Religious Military Order headed by the Black Pope) created the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in 1919. The American equivalent to the RIIA is the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR). The RIIA and CFR set up Round Table Groups (based on the King Arthur myths).
What did the Act of 1871 achieve? The ACT of 1871 put the United States back under British rule (which is under Vatican rule). The United States people lost their independence in 1871.
THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is the constitution of the incorporated UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. It operates in an economic capacity and has been used to fool the People into thinking it governs the Republic. It does not! Capitalization is NOT insignificant when one is referring to a legal document. This seemingly “minor” alteration has had a major impact on every subsequent generation of Americans. What Congress did by passing the Act of 1871 was create an entirely new document, a constitution for the government of the District of Columbia, an INCORPORATED government.
Instead of having absolute and unalienable rights guaranteed under the organic Constitution, we the people now have “relative” rights or privileges. One example is the Sovereign’s right to travel, which has now been transformed (under corporate government policy) into a “privilege” that requires citizens to be licensed – driver’s licenses and Passports. By passing the Act of 1871, Congress committed TREASON against the People who were Sovereign under the grants and decrees of the Declaration of Independence and the organic Constitution. The Act of 1871 became the FOUNDATION of all the treason since committed by government officials.
As of 1871 the United States isn’t a Country; It’s a Corporation! In preparation for stealing America, the puppets of Britain’s banking cabal had already created a second government, a Shadow Government designed to manage what “the people” believed was a democracy, but what really was an incorporated UNITED STATES. Together this chimera, this two-headed monster, disallowed “the people” all rights of sui juris. [you, in your sovereignty]
The U.S.A. is a Crown Colony. The U.S. has always been and remains a British Crown colony. King James I, is not just famous for translating the Bible into “The King James Version”, but for signing the “First Charter of Virginia” in 1606 — which granted America’s British forefathers license to settle and colonize America. The charter guaranteed future Kings/Queens of England would have sovereign authority over all citizens and colonized land in America.
After America declared independence from Great Britain, the Treaty of Paris, signed on September 3, 1783 was signed. That treaty identifies the King of England as prince of U.S. “Prince George the Third, by the grace of God, king of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, defender of the faith, duke of Brunswick and Lunebourg, arch- treasurer and prince elector of the Holy Roman Empire etc., and of the United States of America“– completely contradicting premise that America won The War of Independence.
Article 5 of that treaty gave all British estates, rights and properties back to Britain.
It is agreed that Congress shall earnestly recommend it to the legislatures of the respective states to provide for the restitution of all estates, rights, and properties, which have been confiscated belonging to real British subjects; and also of the estates, rights, and properties of persons resident in districts in the possession on his Majesty’s arms and who have not borne arms against the said United States. And that persons of any other decription shall have free liberty to go to any part or parts of any of the thirteen United States and therein to remain twelve months unmolested in their endeavors to obtain the restitution of such of their estates, rights, and properties as may have been confiscated; and that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several states a reconsideration and revision of all acts or laws regarding the premises, so as to render the said laws or acts perfectly consistent not only with justice and equity but with that spirit of conciliation which on the return of the blessings of peace should universally prevail. And that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several states that the estates, rights, and properties, of such last mentioned persons shall be restored to them, they refunding to any persons who may be now in possession the bona fide price (where any has been given) which such persons may have paid on purchasing any of the said lands, rights, or properties since the confiscation.
And it is agreed that all persons who have any interest in confiscated lands, either by debts, marriage settlements, or otherwise, shall meet with no lawful impediment in the prosecution of their just rights.
It is becoming increasingly apparent to American citizens that government is no longer being conducted in accordance with the U.S. Constitution, or, within states, according to state constitutions. While people have recognized for more than 150 years that the rich and powerful often corrupt individual officials, or exert undue influence to get legislation passed that favors their interests, most Americans still cling to the naive belief that such corruption is exceptional, and that most of the institutions of society, the courts, the press, and law enforcement agencies, still largely comply with the Constitution and the law in important matters. They expect that these corrupting forces are disunited and in competition with one another, so that they tend to balance one another.
Mounting evidence makes it clear that the situation is far worse than most people think, that during the last several decades the U.S. Constitution has been effectively overthrown, and that it is now observed only as a façade to deceive and placate the masses. What has replaced it is what many call the Shadow Government – created with the illegal passing of the Act of 1871. It still, for the most part, operates in secret, because its control is not secure. The exposure of this regime and its operations must now become a primary duty of citizens who still believe in the Rule of Law and in the freedoms which this country is supposed to represent.
When the president takes the oath of office he is swearing to defend the Constitution of the District of Columbia, the INCORPORATED government. He isn’t promising to preserve, protect and defend the original Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776. See for yourself – “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” It doesn’t state – “Constitution for the United States of America” which was drafted for “We the People of the United States”.
It is for this reason that Obama never got a declaration of war from Congress for Libya. He didn’t need one. Under the corporation constitution, the Constitution of the United States, Obama is the CEO and master of his corporate domain called the United States. His loyalty is to the District of Columbia, an INCORPORATED government which is financially controlled by London and their Federal Reserve bankers, which is controlled by the Vatican. Obama is president of corporate America – looking out for its corporate interests.
When the International bankers (London) wanted more money they had their banks Goldmen Sachs and Bank of America (taken over by Bank of Italy in the 1920s) falsely declare $billions in losses. The first ever GAO(Government Accountability Office) audit of the Federal Reserve revealed that London has received more than $16 trillion in U.S. funds under the guise of government bailouts. $16 trillion had been secretly given out to US banks and corporate interests and international bankers everywhere from Germany, Italy, France, Sweden, the UK, and Scotland. From the period between December 2007 and September 2011, the Federal Reserve had secretly laundered out over $16 trillion to international banks, corporations, and on the take governments.
If the American people want to know where their money went take a look at the Vatican. The Vatican bank is where most of that $16 trillion went to. Their vaults hold secret numbered accounts (Roman numerals of course) for George W Bush, Bill and Hillary Clinton, George HW Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, Timothy Geithner, Henry Paulson, Tony Blair, David Cameron, Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkel (born Angela Dorothea Kasner). Look also at Citigroup – that bank is used to money launder $billions to the CIA (Knights of the Holy See) for arms dealing, drug trafficking and covert terrorist operations against the United States people – CIA code named al Qaeda. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner ignored President Barack Obama’s order to consider dissolving Citigroup because it is the CIA’s financial pipeline.
By now you should have figured out that the treasurer is the stud duck in America and not Congress or POTUS, and he is working for the Pope. This is only one of several articles on this subject that I have been holding back on because most simply are not willing to believe so many people could have been hood-winked. The sad truth is, we have never been a free nation. I will address this in the near future, so try to open your minds.

By Chuck Baldwin
September 22, 2011
A recent major investigative report by the Los Angeles Times sheds light on what all this "war on terror" is actually costing–and actually accomplishing. According to the report, "A decade after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, federal and state governments are spending about $75 billion a year on domestic security, setting up sophisticated radio networks, upgrading emergency medical response equipment, installing surveillance cameras and bombproof walls, and outfitting airport screeners to detect an ever-evolving list of mobile explosives.
"But how effective has that 10-year spending spree been?
"'The number of people worldwide who are killed by Muslim-type terrorists, Al Qaeda wannabes, is maybe a few hundred outside of war zones. It's basically the same number of people who die drowning in the bathtub each year,' said John Mueller, an Ohio State University professor who has written extensively about the balance between threat and expenditures in fighting terrorism."
The LA Times report goes on to say, "Like the military-industrial complex that became a permanent and powerful part of the American landscape during the Cold War, the vast network of Homeland Security spyware, concrete barricades and high-tech identity screening is here to stay. The Department of Homeland Security, a collection of agencies ranging from border control to airport security sewn quickly together after Sept. 11, is the third-largest Cabinet department and–with almost no lawmaker willing to render the U.S. less prepared for a terrorist attack–one of those least to fall victim to budget cuts.
"The expensive and time-consuming screening now routine for passengers at airport boarding gates has detected plenty of knives, loaded guns and other contraband, but it has never identified a terrorist who was about to board a plane. Only 14 Americans have died in about three dozen instances of Islamic extremist terrorist plots targeted at the U.S. outside war zones since 2001–most of them involving one or two home-grown plotters."
The report also notes, "Large sums of Homeland Security money, critics complain, have been propelled by pork barrel politics into the backyards of the congressionally connected."
See the LA Times report.
Add to the LA Times report a report by Madison Ruppert. In the report, Ruppert notes that it is clearly the Bill of Rights–especially the First Amendment's freedom of speech and the Second Amendment's right to keep and bear arms–that are suffering the most egregious attacks from the federal government's "war on terror."
Ruppert concludes his report saying, "In short, despite the fact that all the statistics and data in the world directly contradict the report's findings and the claims made by clearly biased 'experts' on the threat of terrorism, especially of the homegrown variety, the HSPI [Homeland Security Policy Institute] and other bodies continue to fearmonger and lie to the American people to keep us scared while they empty our pockets and continue their imperialistic adventures in the Middle East and now North Africa."
See Ruppert's column here.
Back to the Times report, not only do we Americans have about an equal chance of dying at the hands of a terrorist as we do dying in our own bathtubs, we have a much greater risk of dying at the hands of prescription drugs–something lawfully encouraged and tightly controlled by the US government. According to a recent report, more people now die each year from prescription drugs than from automobile accidents. That's some 37,000 deaths via prescription drugs annually! (Come to think of it, how many people do you know who have died from marijuana?) And as hard as it will be for some people to accept, this number is gigantically greater than those who die from hard drugs such as heroin or crack cocaine. In fact, the prescription drug Vicodin, by itself, has killed more people than cocaine and heroin combined.
See the report on prescription drug deaths.
So, what has this trillion-dollar "war on terror" accomplished? If it's not making us more secure, what is it doing? Well, for one thing, it has created a stupendous surveillance society. Virtually every piece of public communication is now captured and stored by the federal government. Surveillance cameras are now ubiquitous throughout the United States. We have a gargantuan federal police department (which is anathema to the US Constitution): the Department of Homeland Security. We have thousands of Orwellian laws, most of which were spawned by the Patriot Act. And more and more often, law enforcement agencies are demonizing US citizens for their religious and political beliefs and statements–even categorizing them as potential domestic terrorists based simply on those religious and political beliefs.
To refresh reader's minds regarding how Americans have been labeled, profiled, and denigrated as "terrorists" because of their religious or political beliefs, please peruse the material on this web page.
Fortunately, it does appear that the combination of an emerging police state and a declining economy that has resulted from this "war on terror" is finally starting to catch the attention of the American people. According to a Brooking Institution report, "Six in ten Americans believe that that the United States weakened its economy by overspending in its responses to the 9/11 attacks. In particular, respondents felt this was especially true of the U.S. mission in Iraq. Two out of three Americans perceive that over the decade since 9/11, U.S. power and influence in the world has declined."
A Rasmussen report further revealed, "As with the recent turmoil in Egypt, most Americans (67%) say the United States should leave the situation in the Arab countries alone."
Beyond that, "A Zogby poll conducted in August 2007 found that 51% of Americans want Congress to probe Bush/Cheney regarding the 9/11 attacks, two-thirds (67%) of Americans say the 9/11 Commission should have investigated the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7."
See the BlacklistedNews.com report containing the above survey results and more.
The LA Times is right to question what Americans are getting for their $75 billion a year contribution to the "war on terror." Some could even argue–with convincing data–that the "war on terror" is in reality a "war on freedom."

In the beginning, the International Investment Bankers knew full well that to infiltrate the most powerful governments was the fastest way to dominate the world and produce a global government, Banking, and commerce cartel that had the funds and authority to do anything they wish with every person on earth.
As it stands now beginning with the Bankers, the USA, Russia, China and the rest of the smaller governments, Multi National corporations, and hundreds of think tanks, associations, groups, and of course the brain washed populations of many nations, we have an axis of evil with unbelievable resources to enforce draconian laws and regulations, that is only comprehensible to informed Christians, which is why they have infiltrated our churches with wolves in sheep clothing to present apostate humanism as a substitute for doctrinal Christianity.
Make no mistake about it, there is no power but the Lord God almighty that can save us from massive genocide, and absolute control of all survivors, and this is not a time to bend over and kiss your butt goodbye, it’s a time to get educated on the methods used to defeat us, and to Pray fervently, and constantly, for the Lords help.
Contrary to false doctrine, Jesus Christ is not a passivist, He will come back as a LION and rule with a rod of iron, and if you are not enabled by Him to believe that, you won’t have a prayer. NOTHING CAN HELP YOU. NOTHING, WILL SAVE YOU FROM HIS WRATH, EXCEPT BEING ONE OF HIS PEOPLE. In the mean time He expects His people to reject these tyrants that think they can defeat HIM. Far better to die as a Christian, than to worship the beast, because the death of your body will not end your suffering, and it will continue forever. These are the times to stand up and spit in the face of our tyrants, not bow down to their apostasy. Pray for the Lord to have our military annihilate the Bankers, and their puppets, and for our government to redistribute their wealth to all Nations. That is what REAL redistribution of wealth is. This entire globe belongs to Christ Jesus, along with everything that exists. And if you oppose that, you are toast. Those of you who believe in universalism take heed.
Don’t forget, I am very aware that many of my readers do not believe, and only want peace and prosperity; to them, all I can honesty say is, GOOD LUCK FOLKS!

Sept. 20, 2011
By David W. McElroy
I have had difficulty writing lately, feeling dazed, depressed, and disabled by the barrage of disasters, tyranny, and blatant corruption so obvious these days. I have failed to finish items, finding myself intellectually “punch drunk” in the face of yet another tragedy or outrage. But we must find the will to actively turn the tide. Where is Spartacus?
Many of us are just closing our doors, even our minds, trying to avoid the deluge of bad news and outright lies spewing from the corporate mainstream media and government offices in our clearly fascist welfare/warfare police state. The alternative media is also often depressing in exposing the dark machinations of the elitists. Corruption is rampant, and not even hidden. Brazen crimes are enforced with intimidation while the courts look the other way. Public officials are so confident of their “good ol’ boy” system that they no longer bother to even pretend they are representative, honest, or accountable to We the People. Our knowledge and consent is no longer desired or respected by them. The public servants have become our masters, completely violating the basic principles of American Heritage in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. The Holy Bible is ridiculed and often outlawed, even The Ten Commandments.
We need not use speculations about secret weapons, HAARP, black ops, UFO reports, TR3 B triangular craft or space aliens to convince our neighbors of our perils. No need for “conspiracy theories”. What is in plain public view is more than enough to warn our families, friends, and neighbors. Such as when the New Mexico State Police ruled Officer Lopez “did not violate the law” when a security camera had taped him having sex with a woman on the hood of a car on public land in August… in uniform! Gee, could we all be doing this without being charged with indecency or lewd behavior? Government officers’ disrespect for law only encourages lawlessness, or tyranny, for us all. Which will it be?
Federal Judge Royce Lamberth even recently “concluded that there’s no real interest in determining whether the Obama Social Security Number is genuine or fraudulent, arguing that the need for privacy for the president trumps all else,” Bob Unruh reported in an Aug. 30th article in World Net Daily. He stated that Lamberth wrote that “whether Obama is using a fake number isn’t his concern, ‘Even if the plaintiff’s allegations were true…’ ”
Every case brought against Obama has been dismissed out of hand by various courts, all denying anyone has standing to challenge a lawless president with any charges, even the states which are signatories to the Constitution. Elena Kagan was appointed to the US Supreme Court with huge conflicts of interest, including her having worked as a federal prosecutor defending Obama against numerous charges regarding his citizenship status.
The “Gang of Nine” is not looking out for our interests, and even openly discusses using foreign laws in rendering their decisions, in violation of their oaths of office requiring defense of the US Constitution. Speaking of oaths of office, recall Obama’s public oath-taking was flubbed, and he later took his oath again in a private ceremony. Do you ever wonder what words were actually in the oath Obama officially swore to?
I last published about the usurpation of Congress by the “Super Committee” Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner agreed to. Only twelve senators and congressmen plus Obama will create fiscal legislation (and?), disallowing the rest of Congress to do anything but rubber stamp the committee’s decisions. The presidential usurper has taken upon himself the power of the purse rightfully held only by Congress, and neutered both houses on the Hill. We now have taxation without representation! Do you accept this?
The Justice Dept. under Eric Holder, in a BATF budget line item, is found to be authorizing illegal shipments of thousands of military-grade firearms to Mexican drug cartels. Subordinate attorneys say Holder refuses to prosecute black-on-white crimes under Obama’s watch, such as when the Black Panthers, who were videotaped openly intimidating white voters at the polls, were not prosecuted. Where is the justice?
Obama has repeatedly refused to obey or respect court decisions and has taken it upon himself to determine if federal statutes are Constitutional. He ignores Congress, and has taken away the purse strings from our public representatives in the House, ignoring the procedures outlined in the Constitution. He is refusing to defend our states against the Mexican invasion, and grants amnesty to illegal aliens despite Congress rejecting it. He has even brought charges against Arizona in the United Nations to stifle that states’ enforcement of federal immigration laws Obama refuses to enforce. The public loudly said “NO!” to Obama’s nationalized healthcare, and courts have ruled against it. But “Obamacare” will be imposed anyway, he says. Will you allow this?
Not only domestic laws are violated, but the Geneva Convention and the principles for international law stated in the Nuremberg Trials have been cast aside contemptuously. The US military is sent to conquer one small nation after another for corporate profits, nations not even capable of attacking American shores. America is no longer the hope of freedom and prosperity, the “Shining City on the Hill”. It is feared and reviled. Torture is condoned, and Obama claims authority to kill anyone, anywhere, on his command alone. Habeus Corpus, Posse Commitatus, Due Process, Rights to Privacy, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of the Press, Peaceful Assembly and Free Speech are things of the past now. The Second Amendment is under constant attack, and Obama is supporting a UN treaty that would outlaw civilian firearms. Warrants are no longer needed, and a court in Indiana recently ruled you have no right to defend your home or family against police even when such officers are blatantly behaving in a criminal manner. It is a license to rob, rape, and kill. Just try to object to the TSA agents groping your wife’s crotch, if you doubt this.
Banksters are exposed committing mortgage (and other) frauds, but courts can see no reason to prosecute those “too big to fail“. Instead, the laws will be amended to speed up the foreclosure process, giving “little people” less time to review legalities and options that might let them retain their homes, farms, and other real estate investments. The entire financial system imposed by the Federal Reserve Bank system is designed to bankrupt this nation via usury and paper currency legally deemed “debt instruments“. The Bible warned us against the dangers of usury, and becoming debtors. Debt is monetized and real money, gold and silver, may soon become black market items. Remember how President Franklin D. Roosevelt outlawed private gold ownership and confiscated it?
Socialist policies and Capitalist greed have driven American industry, entrepreneurs, inventors, farmers, ranchers, fishermen, loggers, truckers, machinists, and more, right into bankruptcy. In “Public-Private Partnerships”, losses and liabilities are socialized upon the public and profits and privileges are privatized for the elite. America won WWII by virtue of her manufacturing strength backed by a strong work ethic reinforced by a living wage. Now we must work for less and less, if we yet have a job, being reduced to poverty.
We have become a nation bereft of many basic industries, and are buying many military supplies from Red China. Chinese electronics used in US military applications were found to have secretly installed chips that report data to the Chinese. America is seen as weak and ripe for the picking. Many foreign troops are already stationed here, and Obama has authorized the Chinese to build their own cities on American soil under their own flag with Chinese law enforcement in “Free Trade Zones” all across the land. Do you see a “Trojan Horse”?
How might we turn the tables on our treasonous public officials? Where is Spartacus?
I might suggest that instead of railing against the corrupt rulings and policies being thrown at us like a barrage of bricks and Molotov cocktails flying from all three branches of government that we instead agree with the pirates in the District of Criminals. Before you think I am daft, let me assure you there is a method to my madness. I still strive as a patriotic Christian freedom fighter. What I am advocating is a means of turning the tables against the “Great Satan” holed up on the Potomac, a means of turning its own evil words against it with some political judo. Local sheriffs can be a great help if we persuade them to follow former sheriffs Richard Mack or Jim Schwiesow’s examples. Maricopa County Sheriff Arpaio has also been bold, daring to investigate Obama’s citizenship status and enforce immigration laws.
As Lamberth has ruled privacy trumps all else, “Even if plaintiff’s allegations were true,” we should assert the same rights, as under American legal heritage, all are to be deemed equal under the law. No person is to be deemed to be above the law. We should end the massive “full spectrum” surveillance we suffer. We all know that the politicians, judges, bureaucrats, and uniformed minions all have deemed themselves to be above the law. They have often stated “I am the law!” and free to do whatever they may please with us civilians… and it does not matter what the Bill of Rights says if we disobey an officer! Public “servants” have usurped the public mastery, it is high time they were disciplined to know they cannot claim rights superior to We the People.
When the government’s, Congress, courts, or bureaucracy rules on any issue, we should respond in kind to act with equal application to expose the injustice and absurdity of their corrupt and destructive policies and practices. We can do this peacefully, and in solidarity in massive public protests and class actions, much like the many men who claimed to be Spartacus in that great movie’s climax. The federal forces, of course, will loudly, perhaps violently, respond that the laws are to be applied to the general public, not government’s people. They will expose themselves as the tyrants and criminals that they are when we behave within the legal parameters they set for themselves and claim equal application of the law. We must remind government officers our Bill of Rights was written to restrain government, not We the People. The need to exercise our rights to citizens’ arrest, the Grand Jury system of indictment, and a Citizen’s Tribunal will become obvious. Dare to be disillusioned, see and act upon the truth!
In so doing, we will also demonstrate to the peoples of the world that we Americans do not approve, consent, or tolerate the evil perpetrated by the elitists in their quest to enslave humanity and reduce our numbers with genocide. Rekindle the Spirit of ‘76 ! We must secede to succeed! Perhaps we can once again be that “Shining City on a Hill”, the bastion of Truth, Justice, and Liberty for all. But we must not flinch in rising to meet the challenge. We need real men, warriors running to the battle. Where is Spartacus?
Look around folks. Do you see anyone in the presidential election lineup that reminds you of another Spartacus, or do you see the same bunch of Banker puppets to choose from. Let me make it as clear as a bell, every one of you that has dragged your mind to an understanding of what is going on in our government is a Spartacus. In fact, we have a Nation of people who are all Spartacus's’, and the sword of truth is your ammunition. How do I know this? Simple, you could not possibly be stupid enough to be unaware of the tyranny in our government, or so cowardly to accept it. You’re just waiting for that spark to ignite your rage. Then you will march right up to the (OUR) white House and drag that imposter out and put him on a ship to Kenya, or some other hell-hole. Tell me I’m wrong; tell me you don’t have the balls to protect your country. I won’t believe you; I can’t believe you! Americans’ are free men above all else, and will never give up.

THE MOST RECENT EVENTS IN THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL WAR INCLUDED A MEETING OF THE ‘UNALIGNED NATIONS’ AND THE BOMBING OF TWO UNDERGROUND BASES
Benjamin Fulford, former Japanese correspondent for Forbes Magazine, is interviewed by David Wilcox (story posted on Divine Cosmos website) and talks about the state of the world economy from ‘where he sits’. Ben is in one of the ‘loops’, regarding efforts being made by some of the world’s most powerful people to restore global sanity. There are many now attempting to stop the corrupt international financial gangsters (including the Federal Reserve banksters) and their relentless destructive schemes to control the global economy.
Fulford – Wilcox interview
Some of the points Ben discussed in this interview:
§ The Federal Reserve and the globalists are being cut off of both oil and money
§ The ‘elite’ seeking world domination have roots that go all the way back to Caesar
§ The ‘elite’ want the population reduced to 500,000,000. They were planning a nuclear holocaust to achieve this goal and they built underground bases to insure their own survival.
§ Recent earthquakes in Colorado and Washington were attacks on the elite’s secret government’s underground bases (shelters).
§ Fearing arrest, the Bilderberger’s fled their most recent meeting in Switzerland
More info from Fulford’s web site (9-14-11) about the international meeting of international finance ministers that he discussed:
Neil Keenan and Keith Scott
This letter came in and confirms what I have been hearing from my sources in Europe, Japan and the US. We are near the end game. Humanity is about to be freed.
It is all coming down :-
The meeting between the 57 Finance Ministers from around the world that took place on board a ship off the coast of Monaco is beginning to quietly emerge as a powerful and dynamic shift in Global Economics and potentially in Global Politics as former Presidents and Prime Ministers of countries who have sided with the Banking Cabal, are now already jumping ship and supporting the growing movement toward proper financial management of the Global Accounts around the World.
A cataclysmic shift in both Global Politics and Economics is now well under way. World Governments are coming to understand how the Global Banking System is systematically looting entire economies through theft, fraud, deception and manipulation, which in turn forces Governments to raise taxes that citizens should not have to pay.
At the meeting of 57 an understanding was created and this understanding has been formalized by the Co-Hosts of that meeting, the Swiss Government. Our internal information indicates more than 80 Governments have issued the Acknowledgement of Memorandum of the Agreement and will formally sign when all Governments who have been invited to sign, formally do so. Also from internal sources, we know that many more Governments will sign. Governments are starting to wise up to what are the underlying causes of financial disaster around the World. Their response is simple and if it could be paraphrased it would be “It is time to get these bums who think they run the world from behind closed doors and drown them like the rats they are”.
This now means that those, who in their arrogance sought to dominate and control the masses through their subterfuge and fraud, have deluded themselves into a corner from where there is now no escape for them. The entire financial mess the world is in will now prove to be a mirage that we, the innocent taxpayer, have been led to believe in. Banks will soon be forced to abide by their Charters and to undertake business strictly according to their Charters. The days of moving public income to the private side ledgers of the banks while they move their private liabilities to the public side ledgers are almost over.
The Banks have blamed the public for overspending. Yet when the economy was hit in 2008 and there was need to provide the TARP funds to keep banks solvent, the banking gurus decided the citizens needed to spend more to kick start the economy. Then the Banks blame all the problems on the taxpayer, when in truth it was the Banks who were stealing and gambling with funds they mirrored from the Global Accounts for underwriting purposes. In fact, they actually called the Global Account bonds as “Casino Bonds”. I can bet, Heads I win and Tails, I don’t lose…the collateral accounts do. Great deal.
The whole thing was started when white dragon society members had 134.5 Billion in bearer bonds stolen from them by Daniele dal Bosco and a renegade officer of the now defunct Office of International Treasury Control (OITC), David Sale. Sale, who despised his former boss Ray C. Dam deliberately set about to malign Ray C Dam and another former officer of OITC, a White Dragon, to Cambodian press and on various internet sites and Sale eventually sent documents he forged to Cambodian Police with the intention of incriminating Ray C. Dam and the White Dragon. Sale believed he could take over OITC by conspiring with Giancarlo Bruno and others from the World Economic Forum, who in turn conspired to embroil and indeed did involve Ban Ki Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations, in the illegal use of Bonds stolen from the White Dragons.
We have a world where the conveniences of power, money and deceit transform into levels of corruption, fraud and theft that stagger the mind with their proportions. We have people who see what is right and needs to be done, being ambushed by situations that destroy them as being useful in fighting the cabal that has threatened to enslave the world.
What nobody realized would happen, did happen.
When the OITC member became friends with the White Dragon Society, not enemies, that friendship was based on doing what is right and best for the world even in the face of the darkest and most blatant threats against their lives. A gunfight took place near the White Dragon member’s home between those who would eliminate him and those who have been sent there to protect him. A known mafioso was caught near the home of a another White Dragon in Switzerland who had been helping. Sale made attempts to hire people in Italy to eliminate yet another White Dragon. Recently he had a very narrow escape when three heavy bags dropped from possibly as high as 35 floors above missed him by mere inches. Ray C. Dam was imprisoned for more than eight months in Cambodia and we know people were paid to dispose of him permanently an activity that it seems the Government of Cambodia tolerated and the United States Government refused to render any assistance to Dam, a United States citizen. He only survived due to the efforts of the White Dragon Society members. These men know the dangers, as key people who were close to them have been eliminated in the past. A White Dragon friend Joe Bendana died in very suspicious circumstances in New Jersey. Another friend was lost in Andreas Jawurek, a Swiss lawyer who pushed the envelope too far with one of the banks and who was found with a gunshot wound to the head.
White Dragon Society members presented the plans they developed and their intentions to the Governments who attended the meeting in Monaco and the Governments like it. One key White Dragon may have his enemies, but he has emerged from over 20 years of working around the Global Accounts to become one of the very few in the world with a true understanding of economics as they relate to these accounts. Another one is a pit bull that knows no fear and has the clarity of mind and purpose that staggers the imagination.
The plan calls for a complete reigning in of the banks and to force them to work according to their Charters, and bankers who fail to comply will face the consequences of their actions. In America, it has been estimated that the US Debt could be eliminated with less than four years through this one device. Taxes could be driven down to their lowest level since the beginning of the nineteenth century.
It is estimated that taxes on the people could be reduced heavily and in many cases eliminated. This is done simply by forcing Banks to pay back to Treasury what they have been stealing in almost every country in the World. Force them to make proper pass back to Treasury Direct instead of stealing the wealth of their clients through fraud and deception.
Put this together with proper oversight, which will take men of resolve and courage such as the above mentioned White Dragons, men who understand the real cause of economic problems, and then the economic problems we are told exist, will simply vanish, for they are no more than a mirage. If you do not believe this, then add the trillions in profits that banks tender as trading profits and the bonuses they pay themselves for the United States alone, and you will have considerably more than the annual deficit growth. Are these earnings from honest labor? Not at all. They are the earnings gained from misrepresentation, fraud, theft, deception and manipulation. The steal the homes of hard working people, people who have been disadvantaged by the rush of banks to pay shareholders ever increasing dividends and themselves ever increasing salaries and bonuses.
Clean up the trading markets of banks and ensure money goes where it is supposed to go.
Once the accounts are in the hands of men who will ensure they are used as they should be, then the problems the world faces today in the disenfranchisement of the working middle class will cease. All countries will have equitable access to the Global Accounts, no matter what their politics.
This change is coming. The countries that have already decided their assets within the Global Accounts System shall be brought under proper control have also decided that Keenan and Scott, the men who have defined where the problems really lie and have fearlessly moved to resolve these problems should also be the men who will oversee the accounts.
We are on the cusp of a whole new era for the world.
One thing the “rats” should realize, no matter how powerful they think they are, Governments make the laws. In the end, these rats that own the Federal Reserve System and the Global Banking System are subject to law, and their days manipulating politicians will come to a very hard end as the politicians wake up.
Senior International Finance official.
Is Benjamin Fulford a whacko, or a straight up journalist? I will leave that up to the reader, but my opinion is he is just another publicity seeker praying on the hope of the masses. There are many people who justify their actions on their concern for the agony of We the People, and give false hope like a placebo for a hypochondriac, all the while gaining attention and admiration from the dull and ignorant.
Telling the ignorant what they want to hear is very effective in side tracking them from the truth, and the truth is the Banking elites have assembled a massive number of people worldwide, who implement their orders and plans, to dominate a species of self-centered ignoramuses that swim in a gator pond of self-indulgence.
The intelligent truth seeker knows that the political, economical, and social repercussions of the mercantilist policies and manipulations of the global banking elites have reached far deeper into the cultural and scientific spheres of every Nation than is generally acknowledged. Soon there will be a global monetary pandemic resulting in a consolidation of assets in the hands of these elites, and inescapable debt slavery for the rest of humanity. In fact, it is in progress as you read this.
At the risk of constantly repeating myself and boring my readers, I will once again repeat the only possible solution to this global catastrophe, and accent it with an analogy.
In all warfare, there is a chain of command, with the cannon fodder at the bottom and the generals at the top. Unfortunately, the intellect is near missing at the bottom and concentrated at the top, which is why all the suffering and loss of life is at the bottom, and only a little in the middle, and none at the top, because the intellectual development at the bottom is such that they volunteer to be killed or wounded, with a sugarplum vision of victory in their mind.
These poor intellectually challenged grunts never considered that the war they are fighting was instigated by someone whose intellect is even far above that of their generals, and if those people had been eliminated, there would be no war or the disastrous tragedies that result. In plain language, let me repeat the solution to peace on earth and financial stability everywhere is to have the military eliminate the global bankers and their henchmen; all of whom have been identified. Next, all of their trillions of dollars in assets should be confiscated and divided up between the nations as recompense for the evil actions of these scumbags, and until America is educated on this and with one voice demand the heads of these bastards, there will be no peace or freedom from tyrannical governments because the Bankers own them.
If we do not do this, we are going to wake up one day as absolute slaves to these people and most of us will have already been murdered. They have been audacious enough to announce their plans of lowering the global population to around 500 million, as that is all that is needed to provide for them. I have reached the point of frustration with my fellow citizens to the point of no longer caring if some scumbag reports me for some trumped-up charge of whatever, and throws me in jail, because I really see no difference in the future we all have unless they wake the hell up. You cannot get a banker owned government to bite it’s owner.
To kill a snake, cut off it’s damn head!!!!!

Alright, you asked for Them,
Now Here They Are
Over the years more of my regular readers than I can remember have asked for some history on My OldDog mascot, things like, when did you begin using the name OldDog, who designed it, do you get many nasty comments about it, or do most people like it?
Here is the history of the name, and the graphical characterization of it. It began when I had a CB (citizen Band radio) shop in Hobart Indiana and used the handle Red Duck.
The shop was right next to Interstate 65 and many a long-haul trucker would chew the fat with me all hours of the day and night. Because I was running a 2,000 watt amplifier many of the local home installation’s would complain I was turning their clock radios on, and bleeding into their televisions, which only produced support from the truckers, and led to many irate conversations that resulted in some small amount of celebrity status for Red Duck among the truckers.
One of my most vocal supporters was named OldDog, and we chewed more fat than a hen house full of Roosters. He was In fact, an Old Dog, and had been driving over the road for forty years or more. When he retired, he insisted I take his handle, because we had become such good friends. I had kept his truck radio tuned and loud for many a year, and he would not take no for an answer. So, to show respect for a crusty old man who had more cupspuh than anyone I have ever met, I changed my handle to OldDog. For one thing, it fits, and I have carried on the grouchy old man personality every since. This all took place back in the mid to late 1970s.
The graphical characterization was a brain fart I had a few years after I started publishing political and economic information on the web, and a close friend and fellow web activist took instructions from me and the bull dogs head that I had found on the web and artfully constructed the original grayscale OldDog. After about a year people had been making so many comments about it that I hired a local graphic designer to polish it up and add full color.
I give full credit to Barbara Peterson from farmwars.info, and Nathan Billingsley of Billingsley Concepts.inc for the art work, as all I did was provide a picture and some instructions to Barb and she took it from there, and Nathan polished it up. As for me, I can’t draw a circle.
I also give credit to all my readers who kept up the request for T-shirts, as I had no intentions of making money on the web, and was kinda afraid of commerce there anyway. Considering the hassle I put Barbara through during the construction of the product page and shopping cart, it’s a wonder she is still my friend, because I insisted on designing the product page and required her to find shopping cart software flexible enough to accommodate it. Now, you know the history of the OldDog mascot, that’s it! I wish the original OldDog were still alive to see it, as I know he would be proud his handle survived.
In reality, the T-Shirt venture is the product of the many requests from my loyal readers, and Yes, I am still considering sending one to the White House.
This entire web adventure has been for the purpose of enticing my fellow blue-collar workers into the intriguing world of the political and economic history of the United States of America, and from the personal communication’s with hundreds of these fine people, I have evidence that I have finally done something to be proud of. There’s a lot more people out there that now understand; the people of the United States of America have been beguiled by the International Bankers from the get go. If anyone out there wants to thank me for what they have learned, click the OldDog T-Shirt link on the navigation bar, and buy a damn T-Shirt! It was your idea……………....OldDog

Now comes a Lady with enough brains to replace our entire government, and do it right!
GO MS HULDAH, GO!
What are the Enumerated Powers of the President?
The President’s Enumerated Powers, Rulemaking by Executive Agencies, & Executive Orders
– Publius Huldah Tuesday, August 30, 2011
On election night, November 2, 2010, Rep. John Boehner said in his victory speech:
…While our new majority will serve as your voice in the people’s House, we must remember it is the president who sets the agenda for our government. … [emphasis added]
Next morning, Ezra Klein commented in the Cult of the President lives on:
I’d like Boehner to show us where in the Constitution it says that the president sets the agenda for the government.
But Boehner is not as astute as Ezra Klein, and does not know that it is our Constitution which sets the “agenda” for the federal government. The agenda the Constitution sets restricts the federal government to war, international relations & commerce; and domestically, the establishment of an uniform commercial system: a monetary system based on gold & silver, weights & measures, patents & copyrights, a bankruptcy code, and mail delivery (Art. I, Sec. 8, cls.1-16). 1
And because none of the House Republicans seem to know that our Constitution sets the agenda, and don’t know that our Constitution also enumerates the powers delegated to the President, they are allowing Obama to carry out his “agenda” to transform our Country into a fascist dictatorship.
What are the Enumerated Powers of the President?
The powers of the President are “carefully limited” and precisely defined by our Constitution. In Federalist Paper No. 71 (last para), Alexander Hamilton asks,
…what would be … feared from an elective magistrate of four years’ duration, with the confined authorities of a President of the United States?…[emphasis added] 2
The answer to Hamilton’s question is this: There would be nothing to fear if Presidents obeyed the Constitution. But they don’t obey it because the dolts in Congress don’t make them obey it!
Well, then! Here is the complete list of the President’s enumerated powers:
Art. I, Sec. 7, cls. 2 & 3, grants to the President the power to approve or veto Bills and Resolutions passed by Congress.
Art. I, Sec. 9, next to last clause, grants to the executive Branch – the Treasury Department – the power to write checks pursuant to Appropriations made by law – i.e., by Congress.
Art. II, Sec. 1, cl.1, vests “executive Power” [see below] in the President.
Art. II, Sec. 1, last clause, sets forth the President’s Oath of Office – to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”.
Art. II, Sec. 2, cl.1:
- makes the President Commander in Chief of the armed forces when they have been called by Congress into the actual service of the United States . 3
- authorizes the President to require the principal Officers in the executive Departments to provide written Opinions upon the Duties of their Offices.
- grants the President power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for offenses against the United States, 4 but he can not stop impeachments of any federal judge or federal officer.
Article II, Sec. 2, cl. 2 grants to the President the power:
- to make Treaties – with the advice and consent of the Senate. 5
- to nominate Ambassadors, other public ministers and Consuls, federal judges, and various other officers – with the advice and consent of the Senate.
Article II, Sec. 2, cl. 3 grants to the President the power to make recess appointments, which expire at the end of Congress’ next session.
Art. II, Sec. 3:
- Imposes the duty on the President to periodically advise Congress on the State of the Union , and authorizes the President to recommend to Congress such measures as he deems wise.
- Authorizes the President, on extraordinary Occasions, to convene one or both houses of Congress [e.g., when he asks Congress to declare War]; and if both houses can not agree on when to adjourn, he is authorized to adjourn them to such time as he deems proper.
- Imposes the duty upon the President to receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers.
- Imposes the duty upon the President to take care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and
- Imposes the duty upon the President to Commission all the Officers of the United States.
That’s it! Anything else the President does is unlawful and a usurpation of powers not granted.
What is the “executive Power”?
So! The granting of the “executive Power” to the President is not a blank check giving him power to do whatever he wants. The “executive Power” is merely the power to put into effect – to implement – those Acts of Congress which are within Congress’ enumerated powers. Thus, if Congress establishes “an uniform Rule of Naturalization” (as authorized by Art. I, Sec. 8, cl. 4), it is the President’s duty to implement and enforce the law Congress makes. The President is to carry out – to execute – Acts of Congress.
But note well: His Oath of Office – to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”, shows that the President must use his independent judgment 6 as to which acts of Congress are and are not constitutional. Thus, as shown in this paper, “The Oath Of Office: The Check On Usurpations By Congress, The Executive Branch, & Federal Judges”, the President has the duty, imposed by his Oath, to act as a “check” on Congress (and on federal courts, as well).
Accordingly, when Congress makes a “law” which is not authorized by the Constitution, it
…would not be the supreme law of the land, but a usurpation of power not granted by the Constitution”… Federalist No. 33 (last two paras); 7
and since the President’s Oath requires him to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”, the President must refuse to enforce an unconstitutional “law” made by Congress. Otherwise, he’d be in collusion with the legislative branch to usurp power over The People. 8
So, then! Acting as a check on Congress (and federal courts) by refusing to enforce unconstitutional “laws” (and opinions), as well as the duty of entertaining foreign dignitaries, are the only occasions where the President may act alone. His prime responsibility is to do what Congress tells him.
Article I, Sec. 1 & The Unconstitutional Administrative Law State
Now, you must learn of “administrative law” – i.e., rulemaking by Executive Agencies. 9
Article I, Sec.1, U.S. Constitution, says:
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.
That little phrase is of immense importance. It means what it says, that only Congress may make laws: laws are to be made only by Representatives whom we can fire every two years, and by Senators whom we can fire every six years.
But in Joseph Postell’s “must read” paper, “ Constitution in Decline”, he shows that during the administration of the nefarious Woodrow Wilson, Congress began delegating its lawmaking powers to agencies within the Executive Branch. Since then, Congress passes an overall legislative scheme, and delegates the details to be written by un-elected, un-accountable bureaucrats in the various Executive Agencies. They write the “administrative rules” which implement the Legislation. The result is the execrable Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), which is accepted, by the indoctrinated members of my profession, as “law”. Go here to see the abominable CFR.
May the President Lawfully Make “Executive Orders”?
The Guiding Principle is this: The President has no authority to do ANYTHING apart from constitutional authority or statutory authority (assuming the statute itself is constitutional).
1. So! Respecting those matters within his constitutional authority & duties, and authority & duties imposed by constitutional statutes, the President may make “orders” – call them “executive orders” if you like.
For example: It is the President’s constitutional duty “to take care that the Laws be faithfully executed”. Thus, he has the duty to enforce [constitutional] laws made by Congress. How does he enforce the laws? Sometimes, by means of “orders”.
To illustrate: Say Congress makes a law, as authorized by Art. I, Sec. 8, clause 6, making it a felony to counterfeit the Securities and current Coin of the United States. If U.S. Attorneys are not prosecuting counterfeiters, the President should “order” them to do it. Or fire them.
But say Congress makes a law which purports to make possession of shotguns shorter than 18 inches a crime. Since the President’s Oath requires him to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”, he is obligated to “order” the U.S. Attorney General and the U.S. Attorneys to refuse to prosecute anyone for possession of sawed-off shotguns. Why? Because such a “law” is unconstitutional as outside the scope of the legislative powers granted to Congress in Our Constitution. It also violates the Second Amendment.
Clearly, such an order to refuse prosecution falls within the President’s constitutional duties (enforce the Constitution), and he is giving an order to people within the Executive Branch. The President is the one who is charged with carrying out the Acts of Congress – he has the “executive Power”. But because of his Oath, he may not carry out unconstitutional “laws”. That is one of the checks on Congress.
The President may also properly make orders addressing housekeeping issues within the Executive Branch: Dress codes, no smoking or drinking on the job, he may encourage executive agencies to hire qualified handicapped people, and the like. Just as if you have a business, you may make orders addressing such matters.
So! Do you see? The President may lawfully make orders to carry out his constitutionally imposed powers and duties, and powers bestowed by statutes which are constitutional; and he may address “housekeeping” issues within the Executive Branch.
2. But a President may not lawfully, by means of “orders”, exercise powers not delegated to him by the Constitution or by (constitutional) Acts of Congress.
Yet Obama has issued various executive orders which are unlawful because they are not authorized by the Constitution or by (constitutional) Acts of Congress. Here are two executive orders which are particularly pernicious because they undermine our foundational Principle of “Federalism”, and have as their object the “improper consolidation of the States into one … republic.”: 10
E.O.13575 – Establishment of the White House Rural Council: This E.O. provides for over 25 federal departments & agencies to run every aspect of rural life!
E.O. Establishing Council of Governors: The effect of this E.O. is to erase the Independence and Sovereignty of the States and consolidate us into a national system under the boot of the Executive Branch.
Joseph Stalin couldn’t do better than this. These E.O.s are blatantly unconstitutional as usurpations of powers not granted in The Constitution! So, Nullify them!
3. Likewise, executive agencies may not, by means of “administrative rulemaking”, usurp the powers of Congress. (Remember, because of Art. I, Sec.1, all rulemaking by executive agencies is unconstitutional)!
Here are several cases of such unconstitutional rulemaking:
a) When Congress refused to pass the DREAM ACT, which provided a path to citizenship for certain categories of illegal aliens, ICE had no authority to implement it, in whole or in part, by executive “memo”! Power over Rules of Naturalization (i.e., who qualifies for citizenship and what are the procedures) are expressly granted to Congress by Article I, Sec. 8, cl. 4, which grants to Congress alone the Power “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization”.
The President has no constitutional power over immigration & naturalization except to enforce the Acts of Congress respecting those subjects. Article II, Sec. 3, which imposes upon the President the duty to “take care that the Laws be faithfully executed”, requires the President to enforce such constitutional Acts of Congress.
But if Congress refuses to make a law respecting naturalization, a President who enacts it anyway, via “executive order”, or “administrative regulation”, or “administrative memo” by his underlings in the various executive agencies, is acting lawlessly. His unlawful acts should be nullified, and he should be removed from office for his usurpation.
b) Congress recently did not pass three sinister and grotesquely unconstitutional bills Obama wanted: “Card check”, “ Cap and Trade”, and the Disclose Act. These bills are unconstitutional as outside the scope of the legislative powers granted by our Constitution to Congress. Nowhere does our Constitution give Congress authority to make laws about labor unions (“card check”), or to regulate carbon emissions – CO2, the stuff humans and animals exhale, and plants & trees need for photosynthesis (“cap and trade”), or requiring people with federal contracts to report their personal political activities to the Executive Branch (“Disclose Act”)!
Since Congress may not lawfully make laws on such subjects, no one can. Yet, Obama is circumventing the Constitution and implementing these three failed & unconstitutional bills by agency rulemaking or executive order!:
The National Labor Relations Board, is implementing “card check” by agency regulation. Read this.
The Environmental Protection Agency is implementing “cap and trade” by agency regulation. Read this.
And it appears that Obama – in furtherance of his “agenda” to reward his supporters and punish non-supporters – is considering signing an executive order implement the Disclose Act. Read this.
So! Let us sum this up: The President must always uphold our Constitution. When Congress makes an unconstitutional law, the President must refuse to implement it; and he may, by means of executive orders, instruct people in the Executive Branch not to comply. E.g., if a President orders the U.S. Attorneys to decline to prosecute persons for possession of sawed-off shotguns, he would be acting lawfully because Congress has no authority to ban them. But the President is violating the Constitution when he implements “card check” by agency rules made by the NLRB; when he implements “cap & trade” by agency rules made by the EPA; and the “Disclose Act” by executive order, because the President and executive agencies (as well as Congress) do not have authority over these objects; and further, no one in the Executive Branch has authority to make “laws”!
What Should we do about illegal Executive Orders & Rules made by Executive Agencies?
A Congress filled with he-men and she-women, instead of ignorant cowards, wusses, and wimps, would impeach obama for his usurpations in signing unconstitutional executive orders, and in circumventing Congress by having executive agencies implement, by means of administrative rules, legislation which Congress did not pass. In Federalist Paper No. 66 (2nd para), Hamilton expressly states that impeachment is an essential check on a President who encroaches on the powers of Congress; and in Federalist No. 77 (last para), points out that impeachment is the remedy for “abuse of the executive authority”.
But since the people in Congress are too ignorant and weak to rid us of the abomination in the White House, the States and Counties must nullify unconstitutional executive orders and administrative rules, or submit to slavery and the destruction of our Constitutional Republic. Since State and County officials have taken the Oath to support the U.S. Constitution (Art. VI, last cl.), they are bound by Oath to refuse to submit to illegal executive orders and illegal agency rules.
And of course, WE THE PEOPLE and our businesses must also spit on such illegalities by the Executive Branch. Our “creature” ( Federalist No. 33, 5th para, Hamilton), has turned into Frankenstein, and has lost all legitimacy. PH
1 In Federalist No. 45 (9th para), James Madison, Father of Our Constitution, says,
The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. [boldface added]
2 In Federalist No. 48, Madison points out that in our representative republic,
…the executive magistracy is carefully limited; both in the extent and the duration of its power… (5th para) [i.e., limited & enumerated powers and 4 year terms]
…the executive power being restrained within a narrower compass [than that granted to the legislative branch], and being more simple in its nature… (6th para)
In Federalist No. 75 (3rd para), Hamilton says,
…The essence of the legislative authority is to enact laws, or, in other words, to prescribe rules for the regulation of the society; while the execution of the laws, and the employment of the common strength, either for this purpose or for the common defense, seem to comprise all the functions of the executive magistrate… [boldface added]
In Federalist No. 78 (6th para), Hamilton says,
…The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules … The judiciary … has no influence over … the sword or the purse …and …must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm … for the efficacy of its judgments. [boldface added].
Read the list of the President’s enumerated powers! The President’s powers really are “confined” and “carefully limited” to carrying out laws made by Congress and enforcing certain judicial decisions, military defense (a power shared with Congress), appointing officials (subject to Congress’ approval), and entertaining foreign dignitaries. That’s it!
3 Only Congress has the power to declare war (Art. I, Sec. 8, cl. 11)! See clauses 12-16 showing that Congress has the power to determine the funding for the military, and to make the Rules for the discipline & training of the military and the Militia.
4 Re “Offenses against the United States”: I explain here the criminal laws Our Constitution permits Congress to make. It’s a short list. Take note, you federal criminal defense lawyers.
5 I explain the treaty making power of the United States here and here.
6 During the Terri Schiavo case, Alan Keyes spoke on the radio about the constitutional powers of the President. I seem to recall that Dr. Keyes spoke of the President’s obligation to exercise his “independent judgment” as to whether an act of Congress or a federal court opinion is constitutional. Whatever he said, he opened my eyes, and enabled me to see the elegant beauty of our Constitution.
7 Hamilton also says in Federalist No. 33 (6th para)
…it will not follow…that acts of …[the federal government] which are NOT PURSUANT to its constitutional powers, but which are invasions of the residuary authorities of … [the States], will become the supreme law of the land. These will be merely acts of usurpation, and will deserve to be treated as such… [T]he clause which declares the supremacy of the laws of the Union [Art. VI, cl. 2]…EXPRESSLY confines this supremacy to laws made PURSUANT TO THE CONSTITUTION … [caps are Hamilton’s, boldface mine]
8 Madison says in Federalist No. 44 (last para before 2.):
…the success of the usurpation [by Congress] will depend on the executive and judiciary departments, which are to expound and give effect to the legislative acts; … [boldface added]
The President must not collude with the executive or judicial branches to usurp power over The People!
9 Most of the existing “federal” executive agencies are unconstitutional. They meddle in matters which are not the business of the federal government, as power over the matters is not granted by our Constitution to the federal government. Here are a few of the unconstitutional federal agencies: the Departments of Agriculture, Labor, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, Education, Transportation, and Homeland Security. Likewise for the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, the Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the National Economic Council, the Small Business Administration, the Council on Environmental Quality, etc., etc., etc.
10 Progressives have erased the concept of “federalism” from our minds. “Federalism” refers to the form of our government & the division of powers between the national government and the States.A “Federation” (which is what our Constitution creates) is an alliance of independent States associated together in a “confederation” with a national government to which is delegated authority over the States in specifically defined areas ONLY (i.e., the enumerated powers granted to Congress by our Constitution). Those enumerated powers are the only areas wherein the national government is to have authority over the States. In all other matters, the States have supremacy, are independent, and sovereign! Learn more of “federalism” here and here.
Our Framers warned against the consolidation of the sovereign States into one national sovereignty: In Federalist No. 32 (2nd para), Hamilton writes,
An entire consolidation of the States into one complete national sovereignty would imply an entire subordination of the parts; and whatever powers might remain in them, would be altogether dependent on the general will. But as the plan of the convention [the Constitution] aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States…. [caps are Hamilton’s; boldface mine]
Federalist No. 62 (5th para) says,
… the equal vote allowed to each State is at once a constitutional recognition of the portion of sovereignty remaining in the individual States, and an instrument for preserving that residuary sovereignty. So far the equality ought to be no less acceptable to the large than to the small States; since they are not less solicitous to guard, by every possible expedient, against an improper consolidation of the States into one simple republic. [boldface mine]
And in Federalist No. 39 (6th para), Madison says,
“But it was not sufficient,” say the adversaries of the proposed Constitution, “for the convention to adhere to the republican form. They ought, with equal care, to have preserved the FEDERAL form, which regards the Union as a CONFEDERACY of sovereign states; instead of which, they have framed a NATIONAL government, which regards the Union as a CONSOLIDATION of the States.” And it is asked by what authority this bold and radical innovation was undertaken? The handle which has been made of this objection requires that it should be examined with some precision….[caps are Madison’s]
Madison then gives a brilliant exposition of the “national” and “federal” aspects of Our Constitution. More than any other Paper, No. 39 addresses the primary political problem of our Time: The national government’s destruction of “federalism” by eradicating all vestiges of sovereign & independent States.
We are a trusting People easily lead astray. Make something sound “patriotic”, and we are all for it. Since 1892, American public school children have been indoctrinated with the statist Lie that ours is an indivisible national government. This was done by means of the Pledge of Allegiance: “….one nation … indivisible…”. Is it any wonder that the author of this nasty bit of poison, Francis Bellamy, was a socialist who worked with the National Education Association to institute this statist indoctrination into the public schools? This pernicious pledge is why you don’t know, and no one knows, that our Constitution created a “federation” of sovereign & independent States, united only for the limited purposes enumerated in the Constitution. Wikipedia has good info on Bellamy. PH
