Thomas Jefferson was born on April 13, 1743. In his lifetime he saw his country transformed from an English colony to a country ruled by its own citizens. Remembered by many as the author of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson also served as President and guided the young nation through eight turbulent years. When Jefferson died on July 4, 1826 at the age of 83, he left a country and a people whose commitment to the ideas of the Declaration of Independence seemed firmly in place.
On April 13, just after dinner, there is a knock on your door. When you open the door, you see a tall slender man with red hair. He introduces himself as Thomas Jefferson. You don’t automatically slam the door and call the police but, almost against your will, you invite him in your home. Somehow you accept that this man is not an escapee from an asylum but that he really is Thomas Jefferson.
Jefferson is curious about everything and has a number of questions for you. He marvels at all the new technology in your home. He insists on a lengthy explanation and demonstration of all the appliances and machines in your home. Amazed at how quickly he understands the new technologies, you suddenly remember the statement made by President John Kennedy when he hosted a gathering of Nobel Prize winners at the White House. President Kennedy said, “This is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”
His attention is drawn to the dining room table and the numerous complicated-looking forms with numbers like “1040” or “W2″ or “1099” on them. He politely asks, “What are you doing?”
You feel uncomfortable, almost as if you have a guilty conscience, but you aren’t sure why. You answer, “Each year on April 15, Americans are required to file an income tax return with the Internal Revenue Service, a branch of the Treasury Department. On this return, we are required to list the source and amount of all our income. The amount of income determines the percent of tax that we pay. The higher the income, the higher the rate of tax.”
Then you continue, “However, the government has tried to make it simple. All Americans who work for others are required to have an estimate of their tax deducted from their earnings before they receive their pay. We call this withholding. Also, the law requires us to place our social security number on all our bank accounts. All banks where we deposit our money and people who sell stocks for us report the amount of money we earned in each account and on each transaction to the Internal Revenue Service. These actions are necessary because the government wants to ensure that all of the income taxes are collected. You see, they really don’t trust the people to pay.”
Jefferson is visibly stunned. “You mean Americans are required to tell an agency of the government how much money they made and where they earned it?”
“Yes,” you answer. Puzzled, Jefferson says to you, “The government must have had a great financial emergency which made such a despotic tax system necessary to pay off a great deficit.”
You sadly explain that there really was no emergency. You explain how the admitted national debt is in excess of $16 trillion and increasing by $1 billion each year.
Jefferson, mostly to himself, says, “In my Second Inaugural Address I warned that we must meet all of the expenses of each year without encroaching on the rights of future generations by burdening them with the debts of the past. All of us had seen the devastating effects of a national debt.”
Then Jefferson asks you if you really said that the more money you earned, the higher the rate of tax you had to pay. You slowly confirm this simple fact. Strangely, it no longer seems harmless.
In a sad voice, Jefferson says, “When we wrote the Constitution, all of us knew history. We knew that great civilizations began to decline when they introduced direct taxation. In the Constitution, we restricted direct taxation because we knew it would yield the same result experienced by other nations using direct taxation-erosion of individual rights and the oppression of the minority by the majority because it could use its political power to use the government to steal from the minority.”
Then Jefferson says to himself, “How can this be? Have Americans forgotten history?” You look at this man who, together with a few others, so eloquently gave birth to the idea of freedom that has pervaded the United States for most of its existence and is being echoed around the world today by countries throwing off despotism. Now embarrassed and truly ashamed, you explain that Americans, like sheep to the slaughter, meekly went along with each new law that stripped away more of their freedom.
In World War II, Americans agreed to income tax withholding as a “temporary measure” to help win the war. Of course, withholding was never ended and has become a permanent fixture. Then came the plausible rule that our social security number should be on all our accounts. In this way, the government ensures that no one evades reporting the income earned in their accounts. Of course, then came the rule that all bank accounts should file information returns and that most transactions should be reported to the government.
You state that the income tax rules are incomprehensible, that no one understands them but that the taxpayer is still responsible for compliance. You tell him that in tax matters, Americans are guilty until proven innocent. You explain how an agent of the government can come into your home and inspect all of your checks and papers and ask you to explain the purpose of each check. If the agent decides that you have not fully complied with the incomprehensible income tax code, he can arbitrarily decide that you owe more tax. If your taxes are not paid, your bank accounts can be seized and your home and other properties auctioned.
“Our people fought a revolution because of government intrusion far less than this,” Jefferson says. “It is inconceivable that any of us would have tolerated this type of government tyranny. A government that has to enforce a tax its people will not willingly pay is a government that should be immediately overthrown. In a letter to James Madison in 1787 I said, ‘I hold it that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical. It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.’ Are you sure that I am in the right country? There must have been a revolution. Real Americans would never have given up their rights without a fight.”
Seeing your bowed head, he knows the answer. There was no revolution. Now deeply ashamed, you try to excuse yourself by explaining to him that people who refuse to obey the tax laws are often sent to prison, sometimes for 25 to 30 years.
Jefferson just stares at you. In a low, anguished voice he says, “Is this what we risked our lives for? We thought we were giving future generations a free country ruled by the people for the people. What you have done is taken our idea and twisted it. You have freely submitted to despotism much worse than we faced. You may think that you are free, but that is because you choose not to see your chains or the walls that imprison you. No, my friend, you live in a prison. You work for the government, not for yourselves. Your ancestors would not know you. I am sorry for my country and I am sorry for you.”
Without another word, Jefferson walks out the door. As you see his tall figure disappear into the mist, you are sadder than you can remember ever being. You now must admit to yourself what you have been trying to explain away. What Jefferson said is true. What has happened to us is what Thomas Paine predicted would happen if Americans lost their freedom. Our freedoms have not been taken away all at once but a little at a time.
Jefferson could see it. If you really look, you can see it too.

I am not running these intelligent men down, but they remain just as ignorant as I was for most of my life. Yes, I still have a very high respect for Jefferson but he could not possibly be the saintly patriot we all praise him for. Does the Louisiana Purchase ring a bell? That aside, may I direct your attention to a past published article titled Before Things Get Out of Hand Judge Anna von Reitz
So you will finally understand where we stand today. Read it and weep!

A new Rasmussen Poll indicates that a growing number of Americans want state governments to tell the Supreme Court to get out of the business of rewriting laws and telling American citizens how to live their lives.
In a new poll, Rasmussen reported the percentage of Americans who want states to tell the Supreme Court it does not have the power to rewrite the Affordable Care Act or force sovereign states to authorize gay marriages has increased from 24 percent to 33 percent after last week’s Constitution-defying decisions by the court.
A closer look at the poll results indicates that popular sentiment for state defiance of the federal government extends beyond just the Supreme Court’s latest decisions.
“Only 20% [of likely voters] now consider the federal government a protector of individual liberty,” the Rasmussen Poll finds. “Sixty percent (60 %) see the government as a threat to individual liberty instead,” it adds.
“Take this regulation and shove it,” and “take this grant and shove it,” are two additional battle cries which appear to resonate with a growing popular sentiment, especially in “flyover country,” those 38 states outside the dozen in which President Obama won more than 56.2 percent of the vote in 2012.
(In descending order of support for Obama, those twelve states are: Hawaii, Vermont, New York, Rhode Island, Maryland, Massachusetts, California, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois, and Maine. Arguably, three additional states where President Obama won between 54 percent and 56.2 percent of the vote in 2012 could be added to this list: Washington, Oregon, and Michigan.)
One hundred and fifty years after the end of the Civil War, it is becoming increasingly clear that there are two Americas—one where the principles of constitutionally limited government and individual liberty are still revered, the other where STATISM and the trampling of individual rights are on the rise.
The Tea Party movement arose in 2009 to restore those principles of constitutionally-limited government. But despite electoral victories that placed Republicans in control of the House of Representatives in 2010, and the Senate in 2014, it is undeniable that the Republican establishment those elections empowered is instead aligned with the forces of statism.
The majority of the members of the Supreme Court itself are also clearly part of the “elitist” camp of anti-constitutionalists. As Breitbart’s Thomas Williams noted, and Justice Scalia himself pointed out in his scathing dissent in the gay marriage decision, not a single member of the nine member court is of the Protestant faith. Not a single member has graduated from a law school other than Harvard, Yale, or Columbia. Nor has a single member done anything other than practice some version of corporate law with “big law” firms, sit on a federal court, work for the federal government, or work in left-wing academia.
With the entire apparatus of the federal government now aligned against constitutionally limited government, some traditionalists have given themselves over to despair and defeatism. That negative view, however, fails to understand the solution provided to usurpations of power by the central government found within the Constitution itself, with origins in the Declaration of Independence, whose signing on July 4, 1776 we celebrate today.
As Rasmussen Reports noted, “The Declaration of Independence, the foundational document that Americans honor on the Fourth of July, says that governments derive their authority from the consent of the governed, but just 25% believe that to be true of the federal government today.”
Even more significantly, however, the recent Supreme Court decisions are a complete rejection of the concepts of state sovereignty articulated in the 10th amendment, the last element of the Bill of Rights, the promise of whose passage by the First Congress was key to the ratification of the Constitution.
The 10th amendment, ratified along with the other nine amendments of the Bill of Rights on December 15, 1791, reads as follows:
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
The concept of popular resistance to the unconstitutional encroachment of the federal government on the rights of individuals and states has been gaining momentum over the past several years.
Conservative radio host Mark Levin, for instance, has advocated on behalf of an Article V Convention of the States to propose new amendments to the Constitution for ratification by the states that would limit federal powers.
Conservative author and intellectual leader Charles Murray has also advocated for a type of civil disobedience to resist unlawful federal regulations through the use of well funded legal challenges to the most egregious of those regulations.
Both concepts have merit, but ultimately lack the power and effective counter-attack available through the simple mechanism offered by the 10th amendment—widespread resistance to federal overreaches by the state governments themselves.
Bolder, constitutionally based resistance at the state level, is a practical and viable remedy, one that already has broad popular support among conservatives.
As Rasmussen Reports noted:
[T]he voters who feel strongest about overriding the federal courts – Republicans and conservatives – are those who traditionally have been the most supportive of the Constitution and separation of powers. During the Obama years, however, these voters have become increasingly suspicious and even hostile toward the federal government.
Fifty percent (50%) of GOP voters now believe states should have the right to ignore federal court rulings, compared to just 22% of Democrats and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Interestingly, this represents a noticeable rise in support among all three groups.
Fifty percent (50%) of conservative voters share this view, but just 27% of moderates and 15% of liberals agree.
Widespread resistance at the state level, however, will require two elements: strong governors and strong state legislatures willing to vigorously assert their 10th amendment rights.
At the local level, we’ve already seen the first indications that a movement may be afoot. In Tennessee, for example, the entire Decatur County Clerk’s Office resigned rather than enforce the recent gay marriage decision announced by the Supreme Court.
Isolated pockets of resistance are springing up around the country.
And yet, even among “The Great 38 States”—flyover country where President Obama either lost or won less than 56.2 percent of the vote in the 2012 election—leadership at the executive level is lacking.
The next electoral battle for the preservation of the constitutional republic will be fought not only for the highest office of the executive branch in 2016—it will also be fought in the gubernatorial races of those “Great 38 States” where the vast majority of voters still believe in America, and still believe in constitutionally limited government.
Freedom of the individual states from the usurpations of the federal government does not mean secession from the constitutional republic. It is, instead, the surest realistic mechanism that remains to preserve the constitutional republic.
By limiting the role of the federal government to the exercise of that very narrow set of specifically “enumerated powers” ascribed to it in the Constitution, state governments can guarantee that our constitutional republic will continue to flourish for generations to come.
The alternative is a constitutional republic in name only, a dystopian oligarchy where words have no meaning, right is wrong, good is bad, truth is deception, and the rule of law is invented anew each day by the ruling class of federal royalty.
As for that dirty dozen of liberal blue states, like California, New York, and Massachusetts? Let them continue on their path of reckless spending and experience the fate of modern Greece.
Meanwhile, the rest of us can continue to choose liberty.

By BILL SIEGEL
In 1958, former FBI Special Agent W Cleon Skousen published The Naked Communist in which he listed the then current communist goals for infiltrating, transforming, and ultimately taking over America. A hero to some, fringe writer to others, Skousen had a perspective both fascinating and shocking to reexamine today in light of recent events including those concerning the Iranian nuclear “negotiation,” gay marriage, Obamacare, power grabs of both Presidents Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin, the advance of Islam, the support for illegal immigration, the ubiquitous charge of “racism,” the endless expansion of “civil rights,” and the dismantling of our Constitution.
Given Barack Obama’s success in executing the “fundamental transformation” of America, Skousen’s list gives profound insight into what might truly motivate the nation’s “smartest president ever.” While Obama cleverly attempts to sell his many efforts as just small steps here or there in simply “deliverin’ to the folks a little something extra” as we slowly progress toward “a more perfect union,” his whack-a-mole shotgun assault upon all aspects of American life more perfectly models a systematic and well-orchestrated march toward many of these very goals.
Meanwhile, most members of our mainstream media – executives, on air personalities, writers, editors, and producers alike along with an advertiser base that supports much of the enterprise – are, at best, merely able to express exasperation and confusion as to why Obama does as he does. Pretending to hold meaningful “conversations” about the President and his key associates, our mainstream media collusively avoids any genuinely honest effort to explore Obama’s true motivations in seeking the destruction of our nation as it was formed and intended to develop and thrive.
It is important to avoid focusing on charged words such as “communism,” “socialism,” or “fascism” as they often carry associations and meanings specific to the user or listener. As with Islam and other such systems, modernity pressures changes in appearances if not formulations such that the “communist” of the 50’s would not appear in similar manner today. What is significant about Skousen’s list of goals are the constructs, tactics and outcomes to which they attach, not the categorical headings under which they might fit.
Of the 45 goals in Skousen’s list, some obviously do not fit today’s changed circumstances while others are far more devastating than originally fathomed. Still, the entire list is provided to furnish proper context. Repeated as read into the Congressional record in 1963, the goals below speak for themselves and show just how far Obama, top aide Valerie Jarrett (herself from a family with various communist associations) and fellow comrades have advanced a great deal of this decades-old vision.
(In 1958)-CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS:
- U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
- U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
- Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
- Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
- Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
- Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
- Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
- Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
- Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
- Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
- Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
- Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
- Do away with all loyalty oaths.
- Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
- Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
- Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
- Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
- Gain control of all student newspapers.
- Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
- Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
- Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
- Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
- Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
- Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
- Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
- Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
- Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
- Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
- Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
- Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
- Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
- Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
- Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
- Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
- Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
- Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
- Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
- Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.
- Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
- Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
- Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
- Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.
- Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
- Internationalize the Panama Canal.
- Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.
The Islamic threat was not on Skousen’s radar in the 1950’s and it has severely metastasized since then. Obama’s foreign policy, which has alienated our traditional allies while demonstrating steadfast loyalty to both the Muslim Brotherhood and the regime leading the Islamic Republic of Iran, seems to have “evolved” coherently from Skousen’s goals. Despite a Sunni-Shia difference, these two share much in common – a utopian supremacist collectivist (at least for the masses) vision, modernized organizational skills and reach, a desire to cause relentless chaos in the Middle East to uproot the tyrannical regimes that fail to appropriately adhere to Islam (most notably the Saudi Royal Family), a desire to obtain control of the oil resources to help further expand Islam and Sharia across the globe, and most notably a deep hatred for Jews, Israel, and America.
In recent times, the “Far Left” has found common cause with our Islamic enemies. The Muslim Brotherhood and the Iranian lobby have been able to form agenda alliances with Leftist and anti-Israeli groups including the politically potent Center for American Progress and the ACLU. As with Sunnis and Shiites, there is much they can accomplish together before they need settle up between them.
Is it any wonder then that Obama might orchestrate “negotiations” (some insist they are a simple and seemingly endless giveaway while others even postulate the deal was made long ago between Valerie Jarrett and her long time Iranian family friend and regime loyalist, Ali Velayati; the interim sequence of discussions being simply a manipulation of expectations for show) to empower Iran while overseeing the decimation of our own military and particularly our nuclear assets? Is it any wonder Obama and compatriot Hillary Clinton would facilitate the overthrow of Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak and Libya’s Moammar Khadafy and, despite years to plan otherwise, leave upon our exit from Iraq enough arms for ISIS and others to continue stirring the requisite regional chaos? Consider the infiltration of Muslim Brotherhood associated persons permitted, if not installed, throughout all levels of our government directing, among other things, training related to Islam and terrorism. Is doing the barest minimum while declaring that ISIL will be degraded and ultimately destroyed anything more than keeping up appearances? Would not installing the Brotherhood’s Mohammad Morsi atop Egypt while eliminating sanctions on the Iranian regime provide staggering resources to fund these two best and largest organized instigators of global terrorism and Islamic pressure? Consider the disgraceful abuse of American goodwill in misusing refugee resettlement operations to insure a rapidly rising Muslim settlement, all in accord with the Muslim Brotherhood’s Civilization Jihad plan for America. Is it worth examining if Obama’s outright refusal to protect our borders is in any way tied to the intent to materially change the makeup of our population? And so on…
Skousen’s list provides a broader background against which to more honorably probe our president’s “legacy” as it stands to date; a background to stand up side by side with those who populated Obama’s own – Frank Marshall Davis, Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, Louis Farrakhan, Edward Said, Rashid Khalidi, and so on.
Days before Obama’s first election, media icons Tom Brokaw and Charlie Rose famously admitted they didn’t “know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy” or “what Barack Obama’s worldview is.” Shamefully, the mainstream media has failed to subsequently meaningfully advance the ball, having disingenuously avoided any truly serious probe into how Obama’s real background, associations, and ideological leanings have guided his endeavors. Because our media elites and opinion leaders refuse to open their eyes, they wind up in an endless loop expressing exasperated bewilderment over how Obama could execute his presidency in the manner he does. They prefer to end asking, “Doesn’t Obama understand that…?” or coaching, “Obama needs to do this or that…” rather than ever suggest that our brilliant president knows exactly what he is doing.
They will always choose to impute good intentions to Obama, attributing any negative outcome to what they have now made acceptable for him – lack of experience, naïveté’, poor leadership skills, chasing a legacy at any cost, even a still youthful fancy if not ego, boredom or shyness. They will not charge, much less consider however, any other intent or ideological calling.
While Skousen’s book was entitled The Naked Communist, our mainstream media has resolutely refused to undress our president and reveal his true motivations in similar naked form. Keeping their eyes covered, they just may have unconsciously sensed something far more obscene than imaginable.

The Free Thought Project
If someone told you that the U.S. government plotted terror attacks against targets on U.S. soil, that CIA had infiltrated the entirety of Western media and was using the media as a propaganda tool or that after World War II the U.S. secretly brought over a thousand Nazi scientists to the U.S to work on top secret projects for the federal government, people would likely say they were a wild conspiracy theorist.
On the surface these, “conspiracy theories” sound like insane movie plots produced by Hollywood, but sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction – and much more ominous.
Welcome to 2015, where tinfoil has become reality.
Let us guide you through 3 of the most tyrannical escapades ever endeavored upon by the United States government, proven through investigation and declassified documents.
- Operation Northwoods
After the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961, in the midst of the Cold War, a top secret plan was formulated, called Operation Northwoods. The operation was signed off on by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and made it all the way to President Kennedy’s desk, where he refused to sign off on the diabolical plot. Some of the most disturbing revelations of the op called for U.S. government agents to carry out terrorist attacks within the United States.
“We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington. The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans en route to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.”
To justify using the U.S. military in Cuba, the military was willing to engage in actual terrorist attacks on American soil. Let that sink in for a minute. This is not a crazy conspiracy theory, this actually happened and the only reason it wasn’t operationalized is because Kennedy said no.
- Operation Mockingbird
This CIA operation began as the Cold War ramped up in the 1950’s. In an attempt to gather intelligence and influence public opinion, the CIA recruited journalists from across the United States. The program operated for nearly three decades and was deeply embedded in the fabric of American journalism. These compromised journalists provided the CIA direct access to some of the most prestigious media outlets in the country. The scope of the infiltration of the media was vast, encompassing newspapers, periodicals, press services, news agencies, radio and television stations, book publishers and foreign media outlets. A congressional investigation by the Church Committee exposed the vast propaganda program, stating:
“The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda.”
Respected journalist Carl Bernstein, writing about the depth of the CIA’s co-opting of media, wrote in Rolling Stone in 1977:
“Some of these journalists’ relationships with the Agency were tacit; some were explicit. There was cooperation, accommodation and overlap. Journalists provided a full range of clandestine services — from simple intelligence-gathering to serving as go betweens with spies in Communist countries. Reporters shared their notebooks with the CIA. Editors shared their staffs. Some of the journalists were Pulitzer Prize winners, distinguished reporters who considered themselves ambassadors without portfolio for their country. Most were less exalted – foreign correspondents who found that their association with the Agency helped their work; stringers and freelancers who were as interested in the derring-do of the spy business as in filing articles; and, the smallest category, full-time CIA employees masquerading as journalists abroad. In many instances, CIA documents show, journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.”
- Operation Paperclip
Operation Paperclip was the codename for an operation in which US intelligence and military services secretly brought Nazi scientists to the U.S., permanently repatriating them as World War II came to a close. Originally the project was called Operation Overcast, and is also referred to as Project Paperclip.
The U.S. showed particular interest in scientists specializing in aerodynamics and rocketry, chemical weapons, chemical reaction technology and medicine. These scientists and their families were secretly brought to the United States, without State Department review and approval. This is because their service for the Nazi party and SS memberships, as well as the classification of many as war criminals or security threats, disqualified them from officially obtaining visas.
President Truman had ordered the exclusion of anyone who was “a member of the Nazi Party, and more than a nominal participant in its activities, or an active supporter of Nazi militarism.” This would have excluded most of the leading Nazi scientists, so to circumvent Truman’s order, the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA), created false political biographies for the scientists. JIOA then went on to expunge all records of the scientists’ affiliation with the Nazi party and grant each of them U.S. government security clearances, thus allowing them to work on highly classified projects for the U.S. military.
The majority of the 1,500 Nazi scientists were deployed to various military testing sites to work on guided missile and ballistic missile technology, along with numerous other scientific endeavors. These actions, in turn, led to the foundation of NASA and the U.S. ICBM program.
All three of these “theories” have been brushed off by many as “crazy” and unrealistic even though there is concrete evidence to prove them all to be true. These types of insanely horrific conspiracies will continue to occur until enough people pull their heads out of the sand; and let it be known that we see what the man behind the curtain is doing.
With knowledge of these heinous acts, one must question exactly what type of similar operations are currently being run by the U.S. government, without the knowledge of the American public.

Mr. Syrmopoulos has not even come close to describing what our government has done and is planning to do, but maybe some readers will get interested in doing the research because of this post. I hope so!

In 2008, the people did indeed “make history” when they elected what would soon become the most impeachable administration in U.S. history, the Obama regime…
Seven years later, impeachment is the only peaceful solution left for the salvation of American sovereignty, security, freedom and liberty. Even after the people elected Republicans to control the House in 2010 and the Senate in 2014, the nation remains on a collision course with disaster…
In just the past few days, the Obama regime launched an all-out calculated assault on the Confederate Flag and the true history behind it, which marks the last time in American history when a group of states band together to enforce Constitutional States Rights and stop the Federal government from running roughshod over the states and the people…
Then the U.S. Supreme Court issued a 6-3 ruling upholding ObamaCare, signaling once again that the Constitution and Bill of Rights are extinct, as is the rule of law, replaced by an oligarchy of nine unelected and unaccountable political appointees interested only in social engineering.
Republican Chief Justice Roberts split with conservative Judges Scalia, Thomas and Alito, to uphold an illegal unconstitutional law that due to its unconstitutional nature and unconstitutional passage, is actually no law at all… Roberts and Kennedy were the two judges who stuck it to the American people in this decision and there will be no price to pay….
They are now expected to rule in favor of eliminating the true definition of “marriage” on behalf of homosexuals and transgendered folks and who knows what perversions of law after that…
Meanwhile, both the Republican controlled House and Senate passed the Obama Dream Bill abdicating all congressional international trade powers over to the Dictator-in-Chief and our immigration and naturalization law enforcement over to the new Global Government at the UN.
All in all, it’s been one hell of a week for the Global Marxists running the United States into the ground at breakneck speed. Not such a good week for Team America, however….
So, after more proof that Congress will never act to stop the insanity on their own, that Obama is totally committed to the final destruction of the Constitutional Republic and the Supreme Court is poised to sit back and rubber stamp any unconstitutional act Obama & Co. might dream up next, the people are left with only one remaining peaceful option….
Impeach… Do it Right… Do it NOW and don’t stop at just Barack Obama….
On July 29, 2014, The North American Law Center (NALC) issued an open public call for the immediate impeachment of the entire criminal Obama regime…. And they carefully crafted a set of Articles just for the occasion… (See NALC Articles of Impeachment here) – NALC is formed, operated and funded by private citizens for the benefit of all Americans who still believe in the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Constitutional Republican form of self-governance…
The people were not yet ready for serious solutions, believing that one more election to place Republicans in control of both congressional chambers would solve the problem…. Today, the people now know that nothing is going to solve the problem short of proper impeachment….
NALC Constitutional Lead Counsel Stephen Pidgeon recorded a narration of the NALC Articles available HERE.
But without “the people” across America behind those Articles, they were doomed to die a silent death just like any other grassroots initiative with no grassroots support….
Now, patriot groups across America understand that impeachment is their last chance at a peaceful solution to their runaway government… The assault on America is so massive and so vast on so many fronts that the only way to deal with any of it is to deal with all of it… to take the head off of this beast and quickly…
A number of patriot groups across Tennessee and other states contacted NALC in support of the NALC Articles and that group has now formed a Constitutional Accountability Coalition for the sole purpose of gathering public patriot support for the immediate impeachment of the Obama regime…
The Tennessee Coalition is designed to organize and mobilize Tennessee voters to mass pressure their Tennessee Representatives and Senators in D.C. to take immediate action to hold the entire Obama regime fully accountable for their criminal acts of treason… The Tennessee group is also designed to be a template for groups across America to duplicate state-by-state, organize and mobilize their citizens for the same single purpose.
The Tennessee Constitutional Accountability Coalition is hosting a National Impeachment Conference Call this coming Monday evening, June 29, 2015 at 8:30 PM ET(7:30 CT)
(Dial in number – 209-647-1600 PIN # to join the conference – 915138#)
I will be on this conference along with numerous other leaders from numerous groups involved in a nationwide push for the immediate impeachment of the Obama regime. I urge every American seeking a peaceful means to end the ongoing assault on our country to attend this conference… Most of the conference will be a Q and A session….
My position is very clear on this, along with the folks at NALC and the Tennessee Constitutional Accountability Coalition…. Nothing good is going to happen in America unless WE the People make it happen…
If you think there are no members of congress who believe the same things we do, think again. In a letter dated June 22, 2015 from House Representative Don Young of Alaska, he states –
“As you are well aware, the President of The United States has overreached the boundaries of his office many times on many different matters over the past few years. His rash and unreasonable actions, many of which have eroded powers from the legislative branch, show a profound disregard for the authority of the Constitution.”
House Rep. Young goes on –
“There have been many examples of President Obama abusing the power of his office. The Obama Administration has been actively engaged in an effort to undermine First Amendment freedom of speech protections. The Administration has pushed to criminalize investigative journalism by going through the emails and phone records of reporters who have been critical of Administration policy and accusing journalists of being co-conspirators in felonies for working with their sources.” – (Young is not alone in congress… more will be released later and discussed Monday night)
If this effort to force impeachment forward in the Republican controlled congress fails, it will not only be because congressional Republicans have failed their voters, again…. It will be because “we the people” failed in our duty to be forever vigilant in defense of freedom and liberty… It will be because WE failed our Founders, our forefathers who fought and died for freedom and liberty, and our children, who will inherit an America nothing like the one we inherited….
I urge every red blooded American patriot to take a stand for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Rule of Constitutional Law and the Republic…. By attending the Monday night conference on impeachment and getting involved in your state immediately following…
56 men were the difference between British tyranny and American Independence and freedom….
Our nation is in desperate need of men and women like this again…
Congress will not do it unless they have to do it… we all know this… The question is, will you be part of the reason they impeach, or part of the reason they don’t?
Meet me at the conference call Monday the 29th… Or stop whining and complaining that no one is doing anything… It will be YOU who isn’t doing what it takes to remain free…
National Impeachment Conference Call this coming Monday evening, June 29, 2015 at 8:30 PM ET (7:30 CT) – (Dial in number – 209-647-1600 PIN # to join the conference – 915138#)

( This makes me totally sick…. disgusted!!! /dt )
Jun252015 – by Paola Casale
any think our government is for sale. However, by taking a look at the facts below provided by Open Secrets, it is easy to understand where they are coming from.
Looking back at Friday the 12th, the House voted on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the controversial bill that gives power to the executive branch to negotiate treaties. TPA limits Congress’ ability to better a trade deal by subjecting members of Congress to 90 days of reviewing the trade agreement, prohibiting any amendments on the implementing legislation, and giving them an up or down vote.
TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition.
- John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million for a “yea” vote and was the highest paid legislator.
- Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million for his “yea” vote.
- Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million for a “yea” vote and came in at the third highest paid legislator.
- Pat Tiberi (R-OH) follows Paul Ryan, coming in the fourth spot having received $1.6 million for his “yea” vote.
The fifth highest paid legislator is somewhat of a “hero” in comparison to others. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) received $1.6 million for a yes vote and only $282,710 for a no vote. Despite his high contribution from those in favor of TPA, he still voted a solid nay.
We also have other hero stories.
- Joe Crowley (D-NY) received 1.3 million for a “yea” vote and only $72,550 for a “nay” vote and he still voted against TPA.
- Patrick Murphy (D-FL) received 1.1 million for a “yea” vote and only $213,360 for a “nay” vote and still voted against it.
- Richard Neal D(MA) received $1.1 million for a “yea” vote and a mere $47,625 for a “nay” vote and still voted against it.
Democrats are not the only heroes in this voting session. GOP members spoke very loud and clear.
- Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) received $541,746 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay!”
- Andy Harris (R-MD) received $254,803 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay”.
- Thomas Massie (R-KY) received $250,328 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay” vote and he still voted “nay.”
- Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) received $180,832 for a “yea” vote and no money at all for a “nay vote” and she still voted “nay.”
Where did this kind of money come from? Those in favor of TPA were security brokers and investment companies who donated a whopping $11.3 million dollars for a “yea” vote. Big banking companies donated $10.1 million dollars. In other words, Wall Street hashed out millions and millions of dollars to push for the passage of TPA.

Is there any doubt that America is not what we were told has children, and hundreds of thousands of brave but deluded young men died for? Is there any doubt that Americans are totally accepting of anything the government demands? Is there any possibility that the reader of this site will now join up with those who are trying to educate the masses? OR, are you going to continue believing you live in the best country on earth?

By Amanda Warren
With another recent mass shooting having taken place last week in Charleston, South Carolina – such a crisis is the perfect opportunity for the President to yet again stop just short of using the “C-word” – confiscation. Or “C” for the gun Control he promoted.
Before any victims were even in the ground, he exploited the tragedy for politicized gun control agendas.
Obama is tired of making speeches about mass killings. He’s tired of them. He doesn’t want killings to be the “new normal.” I agree with the President. Random, mass murder whether by guns, caused by mental illness, or by hatred needs to stop.
Therefore, I took the liberty of finding its biggest source…
If it’s really true that you’re 9 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than a terrorist – then we need to have a talk. But where is our speech to address the thousands of Americans executed by police in the last 15 years? Is it not as speech worthy when the number of dead Americans is only 3 per day and is spattered across the country? Victims one by one?
Although we aren’t allowed to know the actual number of American citizens killed by police each year, a database has been tracking news stories since 2013.
In 2014, at least 1,104 Americans were executed on site by law enforcement. No trial – just violent death. A quick scan of the headlines shows an inordinate amount of shooting deaths. So, the media reports on them, but without the outrage reserved for lone shooters who walk into public places spraying bullets at random people.
Not only do some sources average the deaths out to 3 per day, but also one American every 7.6 hours. That means if you saw this headline before work, and then read the story after you got home from work – two Americans have likely died at the hands of law enforcement in the meantime.
The media supports the agenda to remove gun ownership from law abiding citizens because of conveniently timed and fishy looking mass shootings by deranged males – but not from deranged, gun-wielding males with badges. The ones who may gravitate to such positions, who don’t get screened. Who can simply move to another state or nearby department and restart their law enforcement career after they have killed.
Back to the numbers comparison – how does the amount of Americans murdered by police in 2014 (and on average every day) compare to the amount of Americans killed in all U.S. mass shootings? (A mass shooting is typically one person, who has randomly killed at least 4 people in a public place within 24 hours. Not to be confused with sprees, serial murders or mass genocide)
In 2014 police killed about twice the amount of Americans as those killed in all U.S. mass shootings combined, starting in 1982.
The amount of people killed in all U.S. mass shootings – 567.
That’s 567 people in 157 shootings starting in the 1980s. In 2014 alone – in one year flat – police nearly killed double that amount.
Again, where are the speeches? Where are the calls for mental health screenings and strict regulations for the authorities? Officers who kill don’t have their three-part name plastered on front pages – no calls for their guns removed. And when they happen to use one of their “less-than-lethal” weapons – they kill. When they have only their fists, boots or their arms – they kill.
This is precisely why you never, ever give up your Second Amendment – or your guns. The tragedy argument must always be flipped back to the authorities who want you to be without any defense, against deranged authorities with all the force. Turn. The. Tables.
The trouble with malleable media statistics and their tunnel vision is – it’s all pretty, framed lies. Recall when school shootings first took place – it was reported on daily for what seemed like years until the word “school” was now associated with “shooting” or gun violence. Of course it has has taken place and is horribly tragic. Nothing discounts that. But it’s a focus redirect for a reaction and controlled outcome. Just think about what now continues to mow down Americans in violence at a most startling rate. Think about how different it would be if the media framed police involved shootings in the same light…they should! It should always be a national tragedy.
Not – the “new normal.”
An inordinate amount of shootings took place between 2010-2013. Obama doesn’t even wait for burials anymore before he calls for the removal of guns before hitting the greens again. And if people don’t pay attention and sift through the truth they will find themselves stuttering and speechless when authoritarians – law enforcement perhaps – yank guns from their warm, living hands.
Take for instance, the new federal crime unit Chicago called for in the “wake of the 2014 Chicago Easter weekend shootings.” Guns were the boogeymen man in Obama’s old stomping grounds despite the fact that Chicago boasted the strictest gun control laws in the country – and also surpassed New York City in murder crimes in 2011.
The media rode the choppy waves of pointing to crime in Chicago as a reason to rid its citizens of guns, but also wanting to showcase a drop in crime to show that strict gun control works. The problem is – there was no drop in murder. Just a drastic change in how homicides were reported. It’s amazing how much a homicide looks like “death from natural causes” when law enforcement deliberately record it that way. Additionally, operations for this federal unit began April 1 – before Easter. How then could the unit be formed in “the wake of a shooting” when it happened before the shooting took place? I think you know the answer to that…
Additionally, the mainstream media is still purse-lipped on the “mass shooting that never was.” The one that was prevented by one responsible person with a gun. In fact, the “non-event” was lumped in with other shooting stories to showcase “more gun violence.” (That’s also known as deception.) An off-duty female officer saves the world from another Aurora-type shooting? Normally, that holds all the media-trappings of a heroic cause for celebration. Except when that last slot on the machine doesn’t match the greater agenda of gun control – then it doesn’t make it past the cutting room floor.
Again, I’m going to have to side with Obama on this one. Too many killings are taking place – it cannot be the “new normal” – but where, O where, shall we look?
Brandon Turbeville writes:
As for [Obama’s] claims that mass shootings do not happen in other countries, of course, he can easily be proven wrong. They do. And when they do, they are generally much more dramatic due to the disarmed nature of the public.
The Second Amendment is non-negotiable. It has to be, unless the world wants to witness an En Mass shooting here in America like never before. Which is why it was written of course – the only reason why it was written.

Throughout nature it is well known that species will experience changes in its DNA and adaptations in its physical expression and behavior solely for the purposes of surviving in its environment. There are numerous examples in nature of species genetically and physically adapting to its environment for survival reasons. So it’s not a far-fetched suggestion that humanity itself may now be experiencing a physiological mental and cerebral transformation which is changing its behavioral pattern and environmental response to the phenomenon of government.
That’s right, as humans we have an obligation to think critically and objectively when considering the plight of humanity as it struggles in these modern days against the new world order and the human control system. It is up to us to consider the objective expression of this battle for freedom against the oppressive and defective component of humanity known as government.
Whether you understand it or not, those that wish to control you are a parasite on the species. Their infective process is carried out by thought signals within other concurring members of the species. These thought signals of control, rules, laws, policing, and legal system of enslavement perpetuate itself within the species, and is the very system that we know as the controlling governmental system. It seeks to simply control and enslave others. There is really no other purpose for its existence. It generates the mental signals needed to perpetuate the control system of enslavement to take away your individual freedom and your wealth and money. It does all of this by the system of rules we logically understand today as government.
This same governmental system is a sophisticated apparatus. It didn’t just come about by any means. This concept of government, it turns out, is the very burden of life that ensures that life often is a struggle, is stress filled or not enjoyable. This control system is a challenge humanity has been trying to figure out for centuries. Anyone can read ancient history and see the exact same struggle humanity was in back then. It is not difficult to see the parallels throughout history showing how the history of freedom’s struggle is arguably the very history of humanity.
Unfortunately today, all of history is often taught to children from the point of view of the controllers. The concept of freedom is normally hidden from human consciousness from the start with the hope and intention that the human being will never comprehend what it means to be truly free. The control system’s logic instilled from youth is that life is what you are told it is by the control system and you are to obey. We are taught that freedom from controlling governments is not realistic, not possible and not even part of human history.
Realization and awareness
However, with the advent of the information age and the subsequent advancement in human awareness and consciousness, many within the species (those who are awakened) are realizing that the sky is the limit. Humanity is realizing that truth itself is realized, not expressed to you by a voice on TV or a billboard. Awakened humanity is realizing that we are what we believe we can be. The rules of old are quickly dissolving before our eyes even as the control system marches on with control tactics to keep the masses enslaved.
Reality and fiction are on a collision course. The controllers are intending to force their fiction on humanity even if it means going violent. Today, this forceful violence designed to intimidate and push their agenda is known by many names today including “false flags”. These false flags are now the norm in the eyes of those who are awakened, and spontaneous coincidences in the eyes of those still asleep in the matrix of lies.
This epic moment in human consciousness is leading to something big. What we are now seeing is a rash of staged government violent operations, staged false flag violence and everyday lies from the control system’s mainstream media. As awakened humanity fights off a now weak storm of verbal attacks (“conspiracy theorists”) designed to discredit those awakened, it is primed to usher in a new era which is already underway.
The new era of human consciousness has many features to it. It’s already in progress and it’s all around us even though most people don’t realize it. Humanity is mentally advancing and adapting very comfortably to government lies and propaganda. Yes, that’s right! I believe humanity is adapting so well to government lies and propaganda that the control system is desperate to do whatever it has to do to control, fool and convince those that are still asleep that the dream they are in is still real. They are throwing the kitchen sink at this prospect. The dream of controlling humanity is, after all, a dream to the controllers. The same way you and I have dreams of success and happiness is the same way the controller have dreams of controlling. Like any member of the species, we (they) are wired to not give up on our (their) dreams.
This functional commonality within humanity is a very important reality we must all keep in mind. The same tenacity that we have for fighting for freedom and truth is the tenacity the controllers have for fighting for enslavement and lies.
Rendering the control system powerless
I believe our similarities within the species is something that is allowing the species as a whole to adapt to the problematic control system. This diseased portion of humanity known as the control system is losing its mass influence, and the loss of influence is growing and becoming more pronounced with every day that goes by.
For example, as I’ve discussed in the past, more than ever we are now seeing repeated government lies, propaganda, entire operations including false flags and fake terror operations all being pushed on the masses at all-time rates, all the while a growing significant percentage of the human population is not even blinking at these events. It’s as if these false flag shootings, lies, propaganda and staged terror is not even happening. The anxiety it’s supposed to produce is not there and the lies they tell are not believed. Awakened humanity is increasingly seeing government and its lying apparatus as an irrelevant part of life.
We all know the control system is very capable of violence. Yes, they will do anything they can to put every single one of us in a cage (jail, prison) or to take away our money (taxes). Yes they will write thousands of laws to make it easier and easier to attack your freedom and steal your money. And yes they will continue to attack your mind with staged fear (terrorism, false flags and engineered natural events). Awakened humanity is aware of what it is dealing with and it is aware of its individual limitations so it tolerates what it sees, quietly marches on ignoring the fear and quietly awaits the moment when all the cards will fall apart for the control system.
Many who are fully awakened realize that essentially all human progress occurs slowly and incrementally. That is the reason why we all have associates, friends and family who are still asleep in the matrix of lies. We understand it is a slow process. It’s the process of human mental, spiritual, and conscious evolution that we are seeing in motion in real-time. Its happening right now and it’s very real.
I firmly believe humanity is actually adapting to the problem of government. Advanced humanity sees the problem and now it is fully understanding what it’s dealing with. This new and evolving understanding is giving way to the evolutionary process of overcoming government. Humanity is intrinsically changing how it thinks in response to the problem of government. Think for a moment how just a century ago no one had any clue what a false flag was. Can you imagine that?
Here we are in the first quarter of the 21st century and humanity’s mentality is advancing beyond its years even as a huge segment is still stuck on the paradigm of entertainment allowing celebrities, Hollywood and TV to influence their perception of the world. Advanced humanity, nonetheless, is moving forward confidently. Those who are awakened cannot be un-awakened. The awakening process is a one-way street. It’s a process that moves forward not backward. Mathematically speaking there will be more (not less) awakened people on earth tomorrow than yesterday, and so on.
All of these factors put together define the evolution of humanity but not in the sense taught to children in public schools. This is the true and real evolution of the human thought process which includes its new awareness of itself, its new awareness of freedom, and full awareness of its enslavement to government and how it employs the current propaganda control system.
I believe this awareness alone is all that is needed for humanity to guarantee victory over the control system. It may sound crazy and exaggerated but this awareness alone will activate the spirit of freedom deep inside the minds of humans and it will activate the creativity in humanity to do whatever it takes to resist the control system. This resistance, when exercised on a mass scale will deal a blow to the control system in ways we can’t imagine.
So no one should be surprised that the control system will soon be using the U.S. military to practice intimidating Americans and pulling them out of their apartments (Jade Helm 15 operation officially starting soon). That’s because deep down the control system knows what it is up against. It’s up against a sophisticated species that is aware, is watching, is vigilant, loves freedom and most important, is evolving mentally. This new adaptation by the species to the problem of government will ultimately be the greatest threat to the control system. The controllers are hoping to overcome this by spreading fear. They know, however, that if they fail to spread their fear it is game over. Are you ready? Will you be ready when things get much worse? Is the greater picture finally coming together?

Comparing societal conceptions from the nineteen fifties to today’s is an exercise in mental flagellation, but it is now easy to understand how malleable the human mind is after years of reading the works of competent authors on the real state of the union. Humanity has degenerated into such a state of complacency as to be unbelievable.
As the art form of mental manipulation advanced, governments worldwide sucked more and more individualism from their constituents until voluntary obedience and support was normal, and self reliance was considered traitorous until freedoms greatest enemy became leviathan and overwhelming. Such is the present state of nation’s world wide. It reminds me of an internet video I saw where millions of people were compulsively jumping into a giant crater. This sad state of affairs is depressing beyond comprehension.
My mind keeps wondering how humanity could accept slavery too concepts born in the mind of lunatics and abhor self determination. Even as I know full well how it was accomplished, my mind still cannot accept such stupidity from my friends, family, neighbors, and fellow countrymen. After all, these are the people who designed and built products making life so enjoyable and productive that back breaking labor is seldom ever needed. How could they possibly accept an ideology so destructive to freedom of thought, speech, and action, when so many millions of their ancestors died to acquire it? What made them believe they had the right and responsibility to support the theft of individualism through public education and media conglomerates? Or, the governments power to kill people for disagreeing? Can anyone really support a government that kills their constituents for supporting freedom of thought and speech? Can any thinking human being justify giving a cop authority to kill someone for disagreeing with them? Dear readers, if your mind has have been twisted so far that you support the government’s right to send tyrants to my home to kill me for disagreeing with their tyrannical laws; you should also warn them to bring plenty of body bags. I’ve had all of this lunacy I will take, and your support of a tyrannical government has made the only solution financially impossible for me.
So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, nor between my herdsmen and your herdsmen, for we are brothers. “Is not the whole land before you? Please separate from me; if to the left, then I will go to the right; or if to the right, then I will go to the left.” Genesis 13:9
The biggest difference between us is, when they come for all of us, you will be on your knees begging, and I will be on my feet shooting back. An honorable death is nothing to fear.

Statement by Mike Vanderboegh at the opening of the Arms Expo, Yakima WA, 20 June 2015
I’d like to speak to you about the uniqueness of what we are doing here today and the efforts we are making to deal with this unprecedented event and how it affects the way we’re handling the competing interests of the participants and the press. First of all, I’d like to thank y’all for coming and taking your courage in your own two hands and braving the uncertainties to be here. In looking out at you I see the Founders descendants, only the Founders didn’t have to deal with the modern surveillance state. There were no cameras at the Boston Tea Party, the Green Dragon Tavern where the Sons of Liberty met was not bugged by the secret political police of Ministry of Homeland Security, the Committees of Correspondence did not have their communications photographed by the Royal Mail, General Gage did not possess surveillance drones and Captain Parker was not plagued by agents provocateurs within his own ranks working for the King and determined to discredit the Patriot cause by goading them into firing first. It is fortunate for us that King George did not possess these instruments of tyranny. But the fact of the matter is that Barack Obama and his minions do possess them. So when you come here today, you are, I believe, exhibiting every bit as much courage as the Founders, for you do face these threats and still you refuse to comply. By your very presence here today, you are sending the message: WE WILL NOT COMPLY WITH THE INSTRUMENTS OF OUR OWN SLAVERY.
But how does this new reality impact us? You are here. The press is, or will be, here. But the fact of the matter is that there’s gonna be some good old fashioned Sons of Liberty tyranny-breakin’ goin’ on here today and the event organizers are doing their best to balance the competing interests of the participants and the press. How? Well, first of all we have a First Amendment area set up for the press. We will be providing folks for them to interview throughout the day but they will not be allowed to roam freely in the event area. They will, I am sure, try to interview folks going in and coming out of the venue. Whether you talk them or not is strictly up to you. But I would urge caution because remember, there’s going to be some tyranny-defyin’ goin’ on here and anything you say, your identity, even your presence, may later be of interest to an unscrupulous state prosecutor who wants to enforce unconstitutional laws. The other thing is that there are groups out there — and the Southern Poverty Law Center comes first to mind — who specialize in masquerading as press, or who circulate through crowds at these events, asking provocative questions whose answers they can later use out of context to discredit people. Pretending to be participants, they take surveillance photos that they will later provide to their symbiotic agents of social control in the FBI and the DHS. This should come as no surprise. It is what they do. It is not for nothing that we in Alabama call them the Southern Preposterous Lie Center. But you should expect that. They are collectivists therefore they are liars. It is who they are. You might as well blame a rattlesnake for biting. But the thing is, they are not as noble as the rattlesnake because they give you no warning before striking. These folks are copperheads, people, pretending to be what they are not, so be advised.
As for the real press, this situation puts them at some risk as well. Anything they do here today, interviews, picture taking, video, may later haul them before a grand jury. This is a direct danger to their First Amendment rights to do their job without threat or interference. So as much as they might chafe under the restrictions of the First Amendment zone, I hope they understand that we’re trying to look out for their own interests as well as yours. After all, at the Bundy Ranch the press agreed to a First Amendment zone so it’s not the first time they’ve experienced this. So it’s not as great a challenge as, say, asking Hillary Clinton a serious question about Benghazi, or anything.
So, that being said, we will proceed as best we can to have a great event today, to celebrate our rights and responsibilities as free American citizens, and to nullify with our defiance Mike Bloomberg’s hateful unconstitutional law, purchased at the cost of his millions. American jurisprudence has long held that an unconstitutional law is null and void. But by your presence here today, you will nullify I-594 more directly and immediately. If it is later found to be “officially” unconstitutional, it will be redundant — FOR YOU HERE WILL HAVE NULLIFIED IT LONG BEFORE. And may God bless you for having the courage to be here.
Somewhere, Sam Adams and all the Founding generation are smiling.

By Kit Lange The Battle for Washington State
As I write this, patriots from all over the country are traveling to Washington State to send a message. They are coming to what may be the largest event of its kind in American history, to make a statement that will stand on its own for generations to come. They are coming resolute, brave and fearless. They are coming to train, to network, to partake in the humbling honor and grave responsibility of being part of the few who choose to stand in defense of Liberty. Before an event, I am always filled with a sense of wonder at it all. It never, ever gets old. As an old, dear friend of mine said to me a few weeks ago, “How blessed are we to be given the opportunity to fight for Liberty?” We are blessed, indeed.
I think about the people who I call family in this cause, the ones who I train with, eat with, argue with, and would without hesitation fight and die with. Contrary to what the average American may think, the people who I call family are not uneducated white trash with a penchant for anarchy and gun crimes. My tribe is made up of some of the most amazing minds you’ll ever meet, people who have honorably served Liberty, some of them since I was a child. They are trainers and teachers, always willing to share their knowledge and their skills. They are family folk, who love their children and their spouses. They are builders and engineers, mechanics and healthcare workers. They go to work, pay bills, go to their kids’ school events, fix their sinks and mow their lawns. In other words, in many ways they are just like you.
What sets them apart and what should scare the living daylights out of the tyrants is this: That is not all they are.
They are also brilliant tacticians and strategists, and eloquent writers who can inspire people to action with their words. They are farmers and survivalists who can thrive in nearly any environment, no matter how rough the terrain or lean the resources. They are prepared for any disaster, and have a plan for nearly any possible situation they may find themselves in. They are intelligence professionals who are experts in things that you would rather not know about and should hope you never have to face. They are former Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps. They are everything from herbalists to pilots, radio operators to plumbers. They are well-trained…and they are still always training. They are not rich, but they offer what they have to the cause. They are self-reliant, and regardless of political, racial or religious differences, they are bound together by the basic idea that we were created free, and must remain free at all costs.
They are also quite literally the most incredible marksmen I’ve ever seen. Of course, the difference between them and the feds is that my tribe has never taken innocent life…and never will.
This is my tribe. These are the people who I stand next to at rallies, the people who are traveling across the country to be here, the people who I spend day in and day out working with in this amazing and terrifying fight we are in. I think of each of their faces as I write this, of each of their skill sets and their fortitude and their absolute balls. Male and female alike, young and old, of all races and all walks of life. I am so humbled to know them and be counted as one of their number. I think of their kids, growing up strong and resolute like their parents, and it fills me with hope. I think of the man whose face I see across the dinner table every night, and I love him even more because I know in his heart burns the exact same fire that is in mine. All of us, united by Liberty no matter the cost. I think of the sacrifices that so many have made in the last few weeks and months to make this Arms Expo a success…and trust me, there were so many. I say that not because these people want recognition although the people I worked with these last few months certainly deserve every accolade that could be thrown their way but because I want readers to understand how much we love this cause, how much we are willing to give in its defense.
We are often castigated and ridiculed for our blunt manner, and I am especially singled out for my seemingly rude attitude toward those who choose to write letters instead of stand, or who do things “differently.” Perhaps now is when you expect an apology for that. I’ll be honest: You’ll never get one. I see what my teammates have given up and continue to give in support of this cause, and I can tell you right now that 99% of you will never know the true cost. I see the stress, the lack of sleep, the severe health issues that they endure because of it. I have been there for the quiet 4am mornings when, after a sleepless night spent with too many cigarettes and too many pots of coffee, we all look at each other with the sobering realization that we may not come home from the rally that day. I know about the financial struggles for those who have chosen to fund liberty activities out of their own pocket when they couldn’t afford to. I’ve seen them hug their kids goodbye knowing it may be the last time they see them. People laugh at that because so far nothing has happened, but the truth is, we never know if this rally is the one they start shooting at. We never know if this time is the time when they decide to arrest us all. For my brother Anthony, this time is already here. If the federal government has its way, his wife Maria will face running a farm and raising five children alone. Where will you be? Arguing on Facebook? Running around in the woods and going to “meet and greets”?
Believe me this post is in NO way a treatise on why some patriots are better than you, so spare me the hate mail. What this post is meant to do is give you some perspective. People read my articles or Facebook posts and they think they know me. They call me a bully and far worse. They call Anthony attention-seeking and arrogant. They do everything possible to discredit us and tear us down. None of that bothers me because I know what you do not. I see what the others in this fight go through in order to keep fighting. The bottom line is this: Membership in this tribe costs something–not because we say so, but because that is the nature of the tribe. Liberty is bigger than ALL of us, and as elitist as it may sound, truly standing in its defense by default will cost you. It will affect your friendships, your relationships, your job. It will change your financial situation, and it will affect your sleep, your health. But it is so incredibly worth it.
Every day I watch people give everything they have for this cause. Everything! So when you tell me in a Facebook message, firmly ensconced in your easy chair with your laptop, that what YOU do, in your little social media groups and Zello “meetings” and letter writing is “just as important”, please forgive me when I laugh in your face. Come stand next to me at a rally, defying tyranny in front of a sniper team just waiting for a go order to blow a hole in your face, and then I’ll take you seriously. Go stand in front of a federal judge as they deny you every right you have in a court of law, like Anthony is doing today. Show up at the Arms Expo this weekend and defy unconstitutional law with us. Choose which bill to pay this month because you don’t have enough cash to pay them all and still continue to support the fight. Stop typing and put some damn skin in the game, because the people I see in this cause have everything on the line.
This weekend, my tribe will all stand defiant against laws that seek to control, to strip us of rights inherent in our very existence as human beings. What will your tribe be doing?

Anti-Gunners Fail to Understand That We Will Not Comply
By Kit Lange
As PHS reported a few months ago, the Second Amendment Foundation—run by pro-background check power fundraiser Alan Gottlieb—filed a lawsuit against I-594 in federal court. Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility and Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, two hardcore anti-gun organizations, filed a motion to enter into the lawsuit as defendants, claiming that they had the legal standing to defend I-594 against those who claimed it was unconstitutional. Even though Everytown is an out of state organization funded and administered by Michael Bloomberg, Shannon Watts, and others who desperately want Americans unarmed, a federal judge today granted their motion to defend I-594 in court.
Their goal, of course, is to see I-594 stand as law, in all its unconstitutional, unenforceable and unconscionable glory. They seem to think that if the lawsuit fails and I-594 stands, that those affected by it will simply sigh and start complying. Surely, they think, these ‘gun nuts and ammosexuals’ will start doing as they’re told…and if they don’t, we’ll just arrest them and imprison them.
They are wrong.
The sentence “we will not comply” is not temporary. It does not have an “if, then” clause. It does not mean “We will not comply until you make us understand that it’s The Law.” Initiative 594 is not constitutional, it is not just, and therefore it is not law. As such, We the People are not bound to follow it; in fact, it is our duty to resist it.
And resist it we will.
Make no mistake: We will no longer tolerate these abuses and thefts of liberty. We will no longer sit by and shrug while elected officials attempt to impose ever-tightening control over us as though we are subjects in their kingdom. We will not disarm. We will not follow unconstitutional laws and rules. We will not register our guns. We will not purchase them at dealers, where our information is collected and stored by the federal government. We will not adhere to ammunition limits, or type restrictions. We will not comply.
The real question is not “will we comply eventually?” It is not even “How far are patriots willing to go to defend their right to refuse slavery and tyranny?” The answers to those questions have been answered many times over, both on this blog and in the hearts and minds of those patriots who are standing on the line. The real question, as Mike Vanderboegh has asked, is “What are your appetites for our liberties?” In essence, what is the government prepared to do? What are the lackeys of tyranny and the enemies of liberty prepared to give up in order to take our unalienable rights from us?
We’ve answered what we’re willing to lose. Perhaps those who seek to take our liberty should answer it as well, because we will not comply. Not if you arrest us. Not even if you shoot at us, and remember, we will shoot back. In order to take our liberty, you will have to kill us.
Even then, if your bullets riddle our bodies and our blood stains the ground, know this:
We will die standing, and we will die free.

By Michael Gaddy
Hardly a week goes by that I do not receive an email or have someone ask me in person how we fix the mess our country is in. I have been remiss in not answering this question with more directness.
The problem which must be addressed is that it has been ingrained in almost all Americans to accept acts of tyranny as “necessary” and “patriotic,” promoting fear of some country or entity, and the government’s programs that pit one segment of the population against another. Another problem is the huge number of people who support the very entities of government that deprive us of our inalienable rights, which in turn is directly responsible for depriving us of the products of our labor.
I must admit that any hope for righting the ship of state of our country left me several years ago. My pessimism was brought about not only by the continued escalation of corruption in our government; the increased meddling in the affairs of other countries and the quest for empire by the Neocon led leadership in both political parties; (Hillary is just as big a warmonger as Bush or Graham) the ever advancing militarization of the police; the obvious lapdog that is our media on all levels, or the rampant socialistic policies of the progressives in government. In numbers, the people who have perpetrated the above on us are relatively small.
The common citizens who claim they support our Constitution and Bill of Rights vastly outnumber the politicians and bureaucrats in this country. The reason any hopes for recovering the government of Jefferson and Patrick Henry long since passed, is because the people in this country fail or refuse to see how they are constantly manipulated into supporting their own enslavement.
Millions of people, who swear their allegiance to the Constitution, continue to elect politicians who couldn’t pass a 6th grade test on the Constitution and seldom if ever vote constitutionally. But when those elected continue with their unconstitutional agendas, those who put them there weep, wail and gnash their teeth at the results of their own actions. Of course, it’s never their political parties’ choices that violate their oaths; it’s always the other guy with the other party; in other words, “if we could only elect the people from my political party who vote for unconstitutional laws, we can bring our country back to constitutional government!”
We ignore founders like George Washington who told us to “Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all;” John Quincy Adams, who said of America “She goes not in search of monsters to destroy” and James Madison who said of war:
“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”
Millions ignore the wisdom of our founders like those above; elect politicians who do the exact opposite of those founder’s beliefs and then claim they want to return to the Constitutional Republic of those same founders. Talk about bizarro world!
These same citizens, who claim constitutionality as a virtue, continue to support those who violate their sacred oaths to “uphold and defend” and engage instead in undeclared wars. This is analogous to supporting and defending the banker who embezzles your life savings and working to make sure he/she keeps their job.
Just how stupid does an individual have to be to believe we should have our military forces in foreign countries, killing and maiming millions, including innocent civilians, because we must fight them there so we don’t have to fight them here—but, the same politicians who claim these aggressive wars are necessary, refuse to protect our porous borders? If this absurdity is acceptable to you and you continue to support it—you do not deserve to be free.
How many more Americans are going to be killed, maimed for life or require continual medical treatment after participating in unconstitutional wars, or return from those wars and take their own lives, before the millions who support this madness realize the only winners are those in the military/industrial/international banking/congressional complex? What brand of idiot does not understand that prosecuting these wars just creates more enemies? Go ahead, fool; trade the lives of your family and friends to increase the financial bottom line of those who lie us into these wars! Complete the insanity by also complaining that our government is broke and you are unemployed or underemployed and your taxes are too high! (Read again Madison’s paragraph on war above.)
Any citizen with a working knowledge of our Constitution and Bill of Rights would know that the great majority of laws, regulations and statutes emanating from all branches of government are blatantly unconstitutional on their face. Yet, with undying devotion, a great majority of Americans support the government employees with badges who are tasked with enforcing those unconstitutional acts. It was Jefferson who said that any law, regulation, statute or edict that violated the natural or individual rights of a person were simply nothing but the tyrant’s will. Yet, we call the government employees in uniform, heroes and clamor for their support as they go about their daily tasks of depriving us of our basic freedoms as stated in the Bill of Rights.
To place support for badge-toters in context, please read “Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent.” By attorney Harry Silvergate. From Google Books is a synopsis.
“The average professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, eats dinner, and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she has likely committed several federal crimes that day. Why?”
Supporting those in law enforcement who enforce unconstitutional laws, regulations and statutes destroys constitutional government. These unconstitutional edicts are designed to enslave a population under the control of a very few in government. Why do you contribute to your own enslavement?
Surrendering to our overwhelming desire to control the lives of others, we support unconstitutional laws, regulations and statutes and the people who enforce them and are proud of ourselves for doing so. Then we ask others to please tell us how to fix the mess that has been created with our own support and money. I speak specifically here of the so-called War on Drugs.
Those in government learned long ago that the best way for a tyrannical minority to control a majority is to divide and conquer. Every day one can see how government goes about creating division among the people. It is Democrats versus Republicans, Blacks versus Whites, everybody versus Muslims, Christians versus non-believers, gun control advocates versus 2A supporters, climate change versus good science, those who produce versus those who claim entitlements, urbans versus rural; it goes on forever. Falling into the trap of divisiveness, we believe that more government intervention (more government employees, laws, regulations and statutes and more of our money) harassing those we oppose will somehow lead to freedom and liberty for our side. No one ever enhanced their own freedom by depriving it from others.
I believe that the overwhelming majority of all email forwards deal with the divisiveness of the masses. I know the ones that I receive do—that is why I began deleting forwards years ago. Hating Obama, the Democrats, Muslims, inner city Blacks, Welfare recipients, Bruce Jenner or the boogeyman of the day does nothing to return this country to its original intent. Most all of the things we are encouraged to hate are products of the very government we support. What this hate and divisiveness does do is convince far too many that more government will cure those ills.
A great example of government sponsored divisiveness is the program to ignore the issue of black-on-black crime. The media never mentions it and the race-baiting Black leaders fail to address it. This creates an immense dislike of the perpetrators of these heinous crimes, so-called Black leaders and a government controlled media by those outside of that population. This is intentional and programmed by government using the socialist “political correctness” agenda. Instead of directing our anger towards the government which created the environment in which these crimes occur, we direct our anger instead toward the participants. Forgotten by all too many are the programs like welfare that created an “entitlement” society and draconian drug laws that create a criminal environment in the black communities wherein a local drug dealer can make more money than a member of congress or a legal businessman. A value is placed on the “turf” where these drug dealers operate which leads to violence. (Not at all unlike the violence in the Middle East to control turf and oil) In turn, the masses do not hold the government accountable for creating a criminal environment but instead direct hate and anger toward those who participate in that created chaos.
Without going any deeper, let me attempt to summarize, especially for those who have asked me over the years after reading my Rants and Musings—“how do we fix it.”
- Never vote for a politician who has ever voted contrary to our Constitution and Bill of Rights. When they do, move for their immediate recall or impeachment.
- Never support a political party that promotes or supports any candidate who does not adhere to their sacred oath 100% of the time. Never support a political party unless ALL its candidates have a working knowledge of the organic documents of our Republic and the moral character to defend and support them.
- Never vote for any first time candidate, at any level, for any office, that does not have a thorough working knowledge of the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
- Stop supporting government employees who enforce unconstitutional laws or wars and stop making excuses for them when they fail to do so. This includes those in the military and those with badges at all three levels of government: local, state and federal.
- Stop looking on the government as some benevolent parent and see it for what it was truly intended: an entity to protect the rights of the people, and remember, according to John Adams, “There was never a democracy that didn’t commit suicide.” Our founders never intended for us to be a democracy. Don’t trust or elect anyone to government who claims that we are.
- Always remember that the few can dominate the masses if they can divide those within the masses and have them believing that more government is the answer. A definition of Divide and Conquer: A way for the few to maintain power is to have the masses under their control to continually disagree so they are never able to join forces and depose the few who are their masters.
So, there you have it. My thoughts on how we stop the corruption of the few in power and return to a Constitution—Bill of Rights based government and my suggestions for doing so. Simply stated: stop doing what you have been doing and try something different.
Will this happen in the foreseeable future? I highly doubt it. Most people who are enslaved to a tyrannical government always believe that it can be fixed by working within the system that was designed by the people who control them. This has never happened in history, but the masses continue to ignore the wisdom of Albert Einstein and his definition of insanity.
I find the words of Emma Goldman to be most relevant regarding this subject:
“Most human beings only think they want freedom. In truth they yearn for the bondage of social order, rigid laws, materialism. The only freedom man really wants, is the freedom to become comfortable.”
Has anyone noticed we are a lot less comfortable lately?
“Patriotism real patriotism has a most important venue, and it is not always about putting on a uniform to fight some senseless, insane war in order to sustain the meaningless myths about freedom or America’s greatness. There is a higher loyalty that real patriotism demands and encompasses, and that loyalty is the pursuit of truth, no matter how painful or uncomfortable the journey.” ~Peter Janney
“We Americans are the ultimate innocents. We are forever desperate to believe that this time the government is telling us the truth.” ~Sydney Schanberg
“Most human beings only think they want freedom. In truth they yearn for the bondage of social order, rigid laws, materialism. The only freedom man really wants, is the freedom to become comfortable.” ~Emma Goldman
Some have attempted to chastise me for being so hard on my (fellow American’s?) But they seldom ever attempt it twice. Some have questioned my Patriotism for my hard ass attitude, but I remain in total and absolute contempt of anyone who supports this present system of lawlessness. All politicians, judges, and enforcement personnel are stupid pukes in my book, whether guilty of actions taken or ignorance makes no difference. It is their responsibility to clean up their departments act!
It’s their god damn job to protect the people’s freedom.

“Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled, they cannot become conscious.” – George Orwell
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
It’s a shell game intended to keep us focused on and distracted by all of the politically expedient things that are being said – about militarized police, surveillance, and government corruption – while the government continues to frogmarch us down the road toward outright tyranny.
Unarmed citizens are still getting shot by militarized police trained to view them as the enemy and treated as if we have no rights. Despite President Obama’s warning that the nation needs to do some “soul searching” about issues such as race, poverty and the strained relationship between law enforcement and the minority communities they serve, police killings and racial tensions are at an all-time high. Just recently, in Texas, a white police officer was suspended after video footage showed him “manhandling, arresting and drawing his gun on a group of black children outside a pool party.”
Americans’ private communications and data are still being sucked up by government spy agencies. The USA Freedom Act was just a placebo pill intended to make us feel better without bringing about any real change. As Bill Blunden, a cybersecurity researcher and surveillance critic, points out, “The theater we’ve just witnessed allows decision makers to boast to their constituents about reforming mass surveillance while spies understand that what’s actually transpired is hardly major change.”
Taxpayer dollars are still being squandered on roads to nowhere, endless wars that do not make us safer, and bloated government agencies that should have been shut down long ago. A good example is the Transportation Security Administration, which, despite its $7 billion annual budget, has shown itself to be bumbling and ineffective.
And military drills are still being carried out on American soil under the pretext of training soldiers for urban warfare overseas. Southeastern Michigan, the site of one of the many military training drills taking place across the country this summer, has had Black Hawk helicopters buzzing its skies and soldiers dressed for combat doing night combat drills in abandoned buildings around the state.
In other words, freedom, or what’s left of it, is being threatened from every direction. The threats are of many kinds: political, cultural, educational, media, and psychological. However, as history shows us, freedom is not, on the whole, wrested from a citizenry. It is all too often given over voluntarily and for such a cheap price: safety, security, bread, and circuses.
This is part and parcel of the propaganda churned out by the government machine. That said, what we face today—mind manipulation and systemic violence—is not new. What is different are the techniques used and the large-scale control of mass humanity, coercive police tactics and pervasive surveillance. As we have seen with the erection of the electronic concentration camp, there is virtually no escaping the invisible prison surrounding us. Once upon a time, one could run and hide or duck into a cave, but that is no longer feasible as caves are quite scarce, and those running the camp have their eyes watching everything.
Moreover, we are presented with the illusion that we act of our own volition when most of the time we are being watched, prodded, and controlled. “The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative,” Aldous Huxley stated. “The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him, the walls of his prison are invisible.”
In fact, with the merger of the Internet and the corporate state, unless you are alert and aware, it will be increasingly difficult to discern the difference between freedom and enslavement. With the methods of mind manipulation available to the corporate state, the very nature of democratic government has been changed. Again, as Aldous Huxley writes:
[T]he quaint old forms—elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of nonviolent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial . . . Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit.
To many, the situation seems hopeless. But is it?
From the day you’re born until the day you die, the choices you exercise are very limited. You don’t choose to be born or choose what sex you are or who your parents are or where you live. When you are a child, you are told what to do, and when you enter school, you sit plastered to a desk and are taught what others demand you should know. Yes, the indoctrinating process begins on day one.
Then there are the rules, the endless rules. If you say the wrong word, write the wrong story or wear the wrong clothes, you can get thrown out of school or even arrested. You live where you are told and eat what others think you should eat. As you grow older, this list expands into employment, marriage and so on. In other words, your so-called reality is socially constructed. It is predetermined for you, and if you step out of line and disagree with what the current society deems proper, you will be ostracized. If you speak your mind to the governing authorities, you might find yourself behind bars.
The point is that in order to develop a compliant citizenry, people must be forced to live in a mental matrix of words, ideas, ideologies, and teachings that are designed to make us conform. “As the Matrix in the movie was used to facilitate the exploitation of humans,” writes author Henry H. Lindner, “so the current ideological Matrix was created for, and serves to exploit us, turning us into unthinking workers and consumers—slaves of the ruling elite who themselves are trapped in the Matrix.” In fact, “few of us are able to escape the Matrix. We do not even know it exists.”
For there to be any hope of real change, you’ll have to change how you think about yourself, your fellow human beings, freedom, society, and the government. This means freeing your mind, realizing the truth, and unlearning all the myths you have been indoctrinated with since the day you were able to comprehend language.
The following principles, taken from my new book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, may help any budding freedom fighters in the struggle to liberate themselves and our society.
First, we must come to grips with the reality that the present system does not foster freedom. It denies freedom and must be altered. “Our authoritarian system is based on cruelty and control—it increasingly drives natural love and feelings from our society and produces violence and greed,” Lindner recognizes. “Our society is deteriorating morally and intellectually. This system cannot be reformed.”
To start with, we must recognize that the government’s primary purpose is maintaining power and control. It’s an oligarchy composed of corporate giants wedded to government officials who benefit from the relationship. In other words, it is motivated by greed and exists to perpetuate itself. As George Orwell writes:
We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. . . .. The object of power is power.
Second, voting is practically worthless. “In principle, it is a great privilege,” Aldous Huxley recognized. “In practice, as recent history has repeatedly shown, the right to vote, by itself, is no guarantee of liberty.”
We live in a secretive surveillance state that has virtually no accountability, transparency, or checks and balances of any kind. As Jordan Michael Smith, writing for the Boston Globe, concludes about the American government:
There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy.
How many times have the various politicians, when running for office, lied about all they were going to do to bring hope and change to America? Once they get elected, what do they do? They do whatever the corporate powers want. Yes, the old boss is the same as the new boss. The maxim: power follows money.
Moreover, voting is a way to keep the citizenry pacified. However, many Americans intuitively recognize that something is wrong with the way the electoral process works and have withdrawn from the process. That’s why the government places so much emphasis on the reassurance ritual of voting. It provides the illusion of participation.
Third, question everything. Don’t assume anything government does is for the good of the citizenry. Again, that is not the purpose of modern government. It exists to perpetuate a regime. Remember the words of James Madison, considered the father of the U.S. Constitution: “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.” Power corrupts. And as the maxim goes, absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Fourth, materialism is a death knell to freedom. While it may be true that Americans are better off than citizens of other nations—we have jobs, food, entertainment, shopping malls, etc.—these are the trappings meant to anesthetize and distract us.
Like the dodo, any “bird that has learned how to grub up a good living without being compelled to use its wings will soon renounce the privilege of flight and remain forever grounded,” Huxley warned. “Same thing is true of human beings. If bread is supplied regularly and capaciously three times a day, many of them will be perfectly content to live by bread alone—or at least by bread and circuses alone.” Free as a bird, some say, but only if you’re willing to free your mind and sacrifice all for a dangerous concept—freedom.
In other words, the hope is that the cry of “‘give me television and hamburgers, but don’t bother me with the responsibilities of liberty,’ may give place, under altered circumstances, to the cry of ‘give me liberty or give me death.’” This is indeed dangerous freedom.
Fifth, there is little hope for any true resistance if you are mindlessly connected to the electronic concentration camp. Remember, what you’re being electronically fed by those in power is meant to pacify, distract, and control you. You can avoid mind manipulations to a large degree by greatly limiting your reliance on electronic devices—cell phones, laptops, televisions, and so on.
Sixth, an armed revolt will not work. Although we may have returned to a 1776 situation where we need to take drastic actions to restore freedom, this is not colonial America with its muskets and people’s armies. Local police departments have enough militarized firepower to do away with even a large-scale armed revolt. Even attempting to repel a SWAT team raid on your home is futile. You’ll get blown away.
Seventh, be wise and realize that there is power in numbers. Networks, coalitions, and movements can accomplish much—especially if their objectives are focused and practical—and they are very much feared by government authorities. That’s why the government is armed to the teeth and prepared to put down even small nonviolent protests.
Eighth, act locally but think nationally. The greatest impact can be had at local governing bodies such as city councils. Join together with friends and neighbors and start a Civil Liberties Oversight Committee. Regularly attend council meetings and demand that government corruption be brought under control and that police activities be brought under the scrutiny of local governing bodies and, thus, the citizenry.
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, for example, police were involved in 39 shootings dating back to 2010. After a 2014 police shooting of an unarmed homeless man camped out in a public park, residents engaged in nonviolent acts of civil disobedience to disrupt the normal functioning of the city government and demand that the police department be brought under control. Community activists actually went so far as to storm a city council meeting and announce that they would be performing a citizens’ arrest of the police chief, charging him with “harboring fugitives from justice at the Albuquerque police department” and “crimes against humanity.”
In Davis County, California, in August 2014, after a public uproar over the growing militarization of local police, council members ordered the police to find a way of getting rid of the department’s newly acquired MRAP tank. One man at the council meeting was quoted as saying: “I would like to say I do not suggest you take this vehicle and send it out of Davis, I demand it.”
Ninth, local towns, cities and states can nullify or say “no” to federal laws that violate the rights and freedoms of the citizenry. In fact, several states have passed laws stating that they will not comply with the National Defense Authorization Act which allows for the military to indefinitely detain (imprison) American citizens. Again, when and if you see such federal laws passed, gather your coalition of citizens and demand that your local town council nullify such laws. If enough towns and cities across the country would speak truth to power in this way, we might see some positive movement from the federal governmental machine.
Tenth, understand what freedom is all about. “Who were the first persons to get the unusual idea that being free was not only a value to be cherished but the most important thing that someone can possess?” asks Professor Orlando Patterson. “The answer in a word: slaves.”
Freedom arose from the hearts and minds of those who realized that they were slaves. It became a primary passion of those who were victims of slavery.
Some Americans are beginning to realize that they are slaves and that if they don’t act soon, they will find themselves imprisoned in the electronic concentration camp indefinitely. Mind you, there may not be any chains hanging from the dungeon walls, but it is a prison nonetheless, and we are, without a doubt, inmates serving life sentences.

As long-time readers to this website will recall, I have been very consistent with regard to the sequencing of how this nation would be brought to its knees.
- A series of false flag events will take place that will lead to massive civil unrest/conflict.
- Martial law will be imposed as a result of the civil unrest.
- Martial law will result in the elimination of any meaningful resistance to autocratic control and the installation of the New World Order. In order to achieve planetary unity, with a greatly reduced population, it will be necessary to fight World War III.
Jade Helm’s Purpose
A blind man could see that Jade Helm is about (1) the removal of Red Listed political dissidents and, (2) the imposition of martial law and the elimination of all political dissidence. There now appears that Jade Helm has an even more sinister purpose. Jade Helm is also providing cover to the U.S. military so that military assets can be redeployed in preparation to fight World War III.
Walk with me through this progression as the third purpose of Jade Helm is revealed.
America Is the Most Hated Nation
In Michel Chossudovsky’s work The Globalization of War: America’s “Long War” against Humanity, the United States has become the real Big Brother of George Orwell’s 1984.The United States is the most hated nation on the planet as we have descended into an abject totalitarian state that brainwashes its citizens into believing that a state of constant warfare against terrorists that the CIA supplies (i.e. ISIS) and this endless war must be eternally waged against these totally mythical enemies. In the name of freedom, constitutional liberties must be sacrificed for the sake of national security and perpetual war is necessary to preserve the peace. The logic reminds me of the old Vietnam era saying which stated that “Fighting a war to preserve peace, is like having sex to preserve one’s virginity”.
In his book, Chossudovsky also went on to say the following:
“The rulers of the US state are global industrialists, bankers, and businessmen who seek to gain control of the world’s natural resources, including the vast natural gas, oil, and uranium reserves at the basin of the Caspian Sea, for power and profit. It’s a thesis that many in the main-stream media might dismiss as a conspiracy theory, save for the fact that it is supported by the chain of events that have unfolded since the close of World War II.”
I would add that the rulers of this country have gotten away with grand theft banking since 1913 by plundering the treasury and the economic future of the United States by plunging the U.S. into unfathomable levels of debt for their personal profit. The center piece of the elite’s economic plan for this country is the misuse of the dollar. Since the removal of the Gold Standard as the necessary and proper backing for the dollar, the only thing that has saved the dollar from collapse is the fact that since 1944, the dollar has been backed by oil, or the Petrodollar as it is called. In this Petrodollar arrangement, the nations of the world that desired to purchase Middle Eastern oil, had to first purchase U.S. dollars which was the currency of exchange when it came to obtaining oil. This arrangement allowed the elite, at home, to plunder the People’s money in the name of the military industrial complex, while keeping the dollar afloat despite the growing debt levels.
The US Is Hit In the Face With BRICS
The BRICS, led by Russia, China and oil producer, Iran, are leading the world away from the dollar as the universal currency of oil. Combined with our $18 trillion dollar deficit, our $240 trillion dollars of unfunded mandates (e.g. social security, Medicare, etc.) and our $1.5 quadrillion dollar credit swap derivatives debt and the continual erosion of the Petrodollar, the U.S. economy sits upon the precipice of collapse. The incompetent and corrupt Obama administration attempted to save the Petrodollar, back in 2012-13 by attempting to gain the moral high ground with the end result being the invasion of Syria which would have been followed by the invasion of Iran. Both world and domestic opinion blocked these attempts and the Petrodollar continued its march towards extinction.
The Rothschild banking system has put the central banks of the world, including the Federal Reserve, on death’s ground. The Rothschild system desires planetary unity as well as 90% depopulation. The best way to achieve planetary unity is through fighting World War III.
The derivatives debt, introduced by the elite bankers have bankrupted the central banks. As a result, the central banks of each country are looking to exploit the resources of the other central banks and their respective nations. This has put the world on a collision course with World War III. All, and I mean all of the national economies are on the verge of collapse. Ultimately, the U.S. must conquer Russia and China to preserve the Petrodollar and maintain their dominance of the United States.
Like a punch drunk boxer, the U.S. economy only needs one significant blow to bring this entire house of cards we call “the economy” to its knees. Since most people live paycheck to paycheck and have less than three days of food on hand, the thin boundaries of social control would quickly evaporate which would necessitate the government finding the need to “extract” those who would be most likely to lead a revolution against the power elite and their minions in Washington D.C. The “Red List” extractions, under Jade Helm, will be carried out by Special Operations Forces. In order to re-establish social control, martial law would be implemented with a vengeance through the use of convention military forces such as the 82nd Airborne. In a nutshell, this is Jade Helm.
“Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste”
As would any entity, the central bankers of this nation, the Federal Reserve, will do what is necessary to survive and that includes the continued plundering of the dollar, while not crashing the dollar beyond the point of not being able to resurrect the dollar. For this Petrodollar scheme to continue, the BRICS anti-Petrodollar strategy must be eradicated and that means war against Russia and China.
All Wars Require Mobilization of Military Assets
Americans have been awestruck at the massive movement of troops around the country. The massive movement of troops seems out of proportion to the Jade Helm drill. Every state in the country is experiencing unprecedented military activity and now we are seeing foreign troops become part of the landscape (e.g. Russians, Danes, Canadians, et al.).
The Third Purpose
When the aerial assets of the AFB were moved, I became suspicious that Jade Helm was ultimately serving a larger purpose.
Most journalists, who have followed the horrific details of Jade Helm know that Jade Helm will eliminate all resistance to World War III. Now we are seeing the prepositioning of military assets under the guise of Jade Helm for the purpose of fighting World War III which is a war of survival for the Federal Reserve and the Petrodollar. In actuality, this world war will be a war of depopulation and planetary unification and will be fought for the Rothschild banking interests in Basil.
At the end of the day the Federal Reserve and the other central banks will lie in ruin as the march towards the seemingly inevitable conclusion of a one-world government comes into being.
Finally, the U.S. has been set up to lose World War III and I have documented this to a fault. The focus for each American should become individual preparation, both physical and spiritual.
Anyone half alert to the facts of life and liberty in America who just ignores these two articles today has to be brain dead.
Get ready for a dirty fan!

Well it has been a long time coming, but all along there have been discussions behind closed doors (never in public) that the Administrative Law Courts established with the New Deal were totally unfounded and unconstitutional. With the anniversary of Magna Carta and the right to a jury trial coming up on June 15 after 800 years, the era of Roosevelt’s big government is quietly unraveling.
A federal judge’s ruling against the Securities and Exchange Commission for using its own Administrative Law judges in an insider trading case is perhaps the beginning of the end of an alternative system of justice that took root in the New Deal. Constitutionally, the socialists tore everything about the idea of a Democracy apart. It was more than taxing one party to the cheers of another in denial of equal protection. It was about creating administrative agencies (1) delegating them to create rules with the force of law as if passed by Congress sanctioned by the people; (2) the creation of administrative courts that defeated the Tripartite government structure usurping all power into the hand of the executive branch, as if this were a dictatorship run by the great hoard of unelected officials.
Not discussed in the coverage of this story is that the Administrative Law Courts are a fiefdom, to put it mildly. They have long been corrupt and traditionally rule in favor of their agencies, making it very costly for anyone to even try to defend themselves. If someone were to attempt this feat, first they have to wear the costs of an Administration proceeding and appeal to an Article III court judge, then they must appeal to the Court of Appeals, and finally plea to the Supreme Court. The cost of such adventures is well into the millions, and good luck on actually getting justice.
Furthermore, Administrative Law Courts cannot sentence you to prison, but they can fine you into bankruptcy. So the lack of a criminal prosecution meant the judges did not have to be lawyers. They could be anyone’s brother-in-law looking for a job where he just rules in favor of the agency not to be bothered with law. Unless the victim has a pile of money, there is no real chance that he or she can afford to defend themselves. This is why the agencies cut deals with the big houses and prosecute the small upstarts who lack the funds to defend themselves.
In a 45-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Leigh Martin May in Atlanta issued an injunction halting Administrative Law proceedings against Charles Hill, a businessman who the SEC accused of reaping an illegal $744,000 profit trading in Radian Systems stock. This is typical. The legal fees involved will exceed the amount of money he is alleged to have made, the typical result is to just pay the fine and they go away, it is cheaper.
The judge ruled that the SEC agency violated the Appointments Clause of the Constitution by subjecting Hill to proceedings before an Administrative Law judge, who isn’t directly accountable to the president, officials in charge of the SEC, or the courts under Article III. The ruling is 81 years overdue. The entire structure of administrative agencies blackmailing people has been outrageous. Then you take the banks who just entered a plea of CRIMINALLY guilty to manipulating markets. They are now formally FELONS who engaged in violating SEC rules and thus under the SEC rules, they are no longer eligible for a banking license. The banks are “too big to jail” and the SEC has waived their own rules, of course, to exempt the banks. So they can engage in fraud and manipulation, get caught, pay billions in fines, and the SEC exempts them from losing their licenses. This is how corrupt the administrative agencies really are.
This new decision calling the Administrative Law Courts what they really are is reminiscent of the notorious extrajudicial proceedings of the Star Chamber operated by King James I. The court of Chancery set up outside of the King’s Bench, so there were no trials by jury. It had the same purpose, to circumvent the law. This is where our Fifth Amendment privilege came into being. That came about following the trial of John Lilburne (1615-1657) for handing out a pamphlet the government did not like.

The Miranda decision is hated by police, prosecutors, right-wing judges, politicians, and citizens. The decision is based upon the history of the right not to be coerced that began with the famous trial of John Lilburn before the English court of the Star Chamber in 1637 where he stood tall and objected to the King’s torture. Lilburn’s crime was handing out pamphlets against the king. John Lilburne (1615–1657) was a leader in the Leveller Movement of the 1640s and was a prolific pamphleteer who defended religious and individual liberty of the people. He was imprisoned many times for his views and was active in the army of the New Parliament rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. In October 1649, he was arrested and tried for High Treason for printing and circulating books and pamphlets critical of the government but was acquitted of all charges by a jury of his peers.

Are YOU going to be one of the parents to draw a line in the red sand?
IF NOT YOU, WHO?
I. Before continuing on with the following post Early Learning From Birth To Age Five by Mary Thompson 3D Research Group, it is important to know exactly what this early childhood agenda is all about.
ABCs of DumbDown: COMMUNIST PRE-SCHOOL EDUCATION ON STEROIDS
1969… Soviet Preschool Education, Volume I: Program of Instruction, Henry Chauncey, Chief Editor, Educational Testing Service, Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Inc. Introduction by Urie Bronfenbrenner.
Excerpted from Introduction by Prof. Uri Bronfenbrenner 1969:
“You really are a nation of individualists!” (Soviet psychologist’s comments made to Bronfenbrenner after viewing individualistic activities of children, working on their own, not in a group, in an American daycare center in nineteen sixties). Wasn’t it individualists who made our country the envy of the world, individualists who had the most patents (inventions), did important medical, agricultural, space. scientific research, etc? These individualists made our nation the “go to” country for millions of immigrants, including those escaping the communist collectivist philosophy espoused by the Soviet psychologist working with Prof. Bronfenbrenner.
“…But if the rest of the community is more in evidence in a Soviet nursery school than in its American counterpart, there is one group that is less influential: parents.” (Bronfenbrenner, born in Russia, deeply involved in passage of 1975 Head Start legislation).
Urie Bronfenbrenner – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
II. AMERICANIZATION OF SOVIET PRESCHOOL EDUCATION
Pilot program from California, discussed below by Mary Thompson, contains major components of family-busting requirements spelled out 40 years ago in the Humphrey-Hawkins Child and Family Services Act. [The New York Times carried an article by Edward B. Fiske entitled “Early Schooling Is Now the Rage” in its April 13, 1986 issue which explained: “Mr. Nixon [early seventies] not only vetoed the bill (Humphrey-Hawkins) but also fired off a scathing message to Congress, proclaiming that he would have no part in in the “Sovietizing” of American Society. “Good public policy requires that we enhance rather than diminish both parental authority and parental involvement with children.”]
AMERICANS SUCCESSFULLY STOPPED, FROM MID-SEVENTIES TO PRESENT, MOST, BUT NOT ALL, COMMUNIST FAMILY-BUSTING EDUCATION AND HUMAN SERVICES BILLS (SEE LINKS BELOW TO MOST RECENT LEGISLATION AND CONGRESS/SENATE TEL. NUMBERS TO CALL TO REQUEST “NO, NO, NO” VOTES.)
SHUT DOWN CONGRESS TELEPHONE SWITCHBOARD WITH YOUR CALLS. 202-224-3121 IS CENTRAL SWITCHBOARD NUMBER FOR ALL CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS.
DON’T STOP UNTIL CONGRESS STOPS THROWING THESE FAMILY-DESTROYING BILLS AT US.
[NOW, with Republicans co-sponsoring communistic legislation, with support from so-called Republican/neoconservative organizations and media such as National Review, such legislation could easily sail through UNLESS THE GRASSROOTS (YOU) STOP THEM, AS IT DID WHEN IT STOPPED REPUBLICAN REP. JOHN KLINE’S HR5, STUDENT SUCCESS ACT, IN FEBRUARY of 2015!
YOU DID IT IN FEBRUARY. YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN.

III. EARLY LEARNING FROM BIRTH TO AGE 5
(From Mary Thompson, 3D Research Group)
Right on cue, the orchestration of national Early Learning and simultaneous formal public/private collaboration at state level in California and most likely in other states, is tuning up to create a “road map’ for so called “Early Education” from BIRTH to age 5. (emphasis added by this commentator). The idea is nothing new. In fact Santa Clara County Office of Education’s Master Plan for Early Learning (2010) calls for starting before birth with prenatal visits to prospective parents.
The Associated Press article from San Jose Mercury News (5/29/15) blatantly spells out the process of change agents, working together to advance agendas on the public whether the public wants it or not. California may be identified as “the right place to start” in the view of the perpetrators, but the obvious implication is to provide a “roadmap” for other states to follow. Connect that with ABCs of DumbDown: RED ALERT! RED ALERT! RED regarding State of Washington Senator Patty Murray’s Early Learning Bill S1380, and it becomes abundantly clear how systems managed governance works.

Coalition targets achievement gaps
Miller among members of early education group
By Christine Armario
LOS ANGELES A coalition of political leaders, business executives and academics announced Thursday that they will team up to build a roadmap for improving early education in California. The Right Start Commission, which includes former U.S. Rep. George Miller and Apple Vice President Lisa Jackson, will work with public and private sector partners to provide the state with “holistic, first-class development” for children from birth to age 5, Miller said. Early education is widely considered pivotal for preparing children for success in school and helping reduce long-standing achievement gaps.
Those gaps can start early: By age 3, children from privileged families have heard 30 million more words than children from low-income backgrounds, according to a University of Kansas study published in 2003. Miller, a Democrat who spent decades championing education while a congressman, said approaches to early education have been piecemeal, resulting in “huge gaps” in opportunities for physical and cognitive development. He said the commission will examine shortfalls in quality and access and work with state and business leaders on solutions.
“I think California is the right state to start that,” Miller said. “This commission will help provide a roadmap.”
California’s state-funded pre-K program serves just 18 percent of 4-year-old children and lags on numerous quality indicators, according to a recent study by the National Institute for Early Education Research. The state spent $4,298 per child enrolled in the 2013-14 school year, an amount that has remained largely unchanged over the past decade.
Jim Steyer, CEO of the education group launching the commission, Common Sense Media, said the coalition will present its findings to business, political and education leaders in hopes of moving their recommendations forward. “Every child deserves a fair start in life, and the only way we can ensure that happens is to provide all kids with the care, support and quality learning experiences they need to be successful from day one,” he said.

George Miller part of new early-childhood panel
By Josh Richman
Thursday, May 28th, 2015 at 11:57 am in Darrell Steinberg, education, George Miller.
Former Rep. George Miller is among the high-profile members of a new “ Right Start Commission” aimed at helping modernize California’s early-childhood services. The commission, rolled out Thursday by Common Sense Kids Action, will develop a plan for providing universal, high-quality access to early learning and support systems from birth to age 5. The panel will examine both government’s role in providing such services, and the private sector’s responsibility to ensure a good start for employees’ children; its recommendations will become a legislative blueprint.
“Every child deserves a fair start in life and the only way we can ensure that happens is to provide all kids with the care, support and quality learning experiences they need to be successful from day one,” Common Sense Media CEO Jim Steyer, who’ll also serve on the commission, said in a news release.
“We know that improving early childhood education is one of the best investments we can make. Yet, across the nation millions of American kids are denied this critical opportunity year after year. With the Right Start Commission, Common Sense Kids Action will kick off an effort to reimagine early childhood services in California and create a model for the nation to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed.”
The commission’s launch is in conjunction with the Invest In US coalition President Obama unveiled in 2014 to improve the quality of and access to early childhood education for children throughout the country. It will hold a series of statewide and national events over the remainder of the year to collect input from early education and care practitioners, parents, educators and respected researchers.
Besides Steyer and Miller, who just retired after 40 years in the House as a leader on education issues, the commission’s members include Salesforce Chairman and CEO Marc Benioff; PolicyLink Founder and CEO Angela Glover Blackwell; Stanford University Professor Linda Darling-Hammond; Institute for InterGroup Understanding Chair and CEO George Halvorson; Center for Youth Wellness Founder and CEO Nadine Burke Harris; Apple Vice President of Environmental Initiatives Lisa Jackson; Heising-Simons Foundation President Elizabeth Simons; and former state Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento.
“Early investment in our youngest children is essential to their long-term success as individuals and a bright future for California,” Steinberg said in the news release. “Now, more than ever, we must move kids to the top of our agenda and provide them with the resources they need to compete and succeed in a global economy. The Right Start Commission is a critical first step toward achieving that vision.”

This problem of child indoctrination has been going on in America for over a hundred years, and as the families involved into two income earners someone had to take care of their children. Is the reader alert enough to figure out this was planned? Now, in many cities they are taking over children’s intellectual development right from the get go. Is it any wonder we are a totally divided country? Can you accept the proven fact that these people are committed communist educators? Are you beginning to understand that America has been under attack within; from the get go? Take this to the bank folks; unless a nation is bound together in support of an individualist, self responsible, universal doctrine, communitarians will creep in like a thief in the night and totally destroy individualism, and its government.
America is living proof of that!

Julian Assange and Wikileaks exposed part of the secret behind Obama’s Trans Pacific Partnership, which leading Republicans signed. Senator Jeff Sessions, a Republican from Alabama, was one of the few senators who publicly challenged the secret Obama treaty that, according to the 17 documents released by Wikileaks, will cover over 80% of the U.S. economy and create what Sessions called “global governance,” establishing a global government without the knowledge or consent of the America people.
Although the alternative media and news outlets like the Drudge Report exposed the great dangers of the TPP, the corporate media not only glossed over the important news about the trade treaties, but the major media outlets, including the pseudo-conservative television networks and “Manchurian Candidate” conservative talk show hosts pretending to be investigative news journalists wasted America’s time with endless hours on Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and the child molestation scandal surrounding their son, Josh Duggar, and what it was like as parents when they learned about his actions, or Bruce Jenner’s sex change operation.
The vast majority of the media outlets in the United States are controlled by just six corporations who are controlled by the power elite who also control secret organizations like the Bilderberg Group, whose sinister plans are never exposed by the major media outlets.
The Bilderberg Group is behind the trade treaties and its leaders are planning global government, which is the only real news story worth covering. The Bilderberg Group’s 2015 meeting is coming up soon at a remote mountain resort in Austria. During last year’s Bilderberg meeting in Copenhagen Denmark over 120 elite globalists planned the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the TPP trade treaties. The Bilderberg Group, which was financed in part by Nazi money in 1954, gathered the most powerful men in the world in Oosterbeek, Netherlands. Their meetings include such powerful people as David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, Gordon Brown, Angela Merkel, Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Larry Summers, Tim Geithner, George Soros, Donald Rumsfeld, Rupert Murdoch, Barack Obama, heads of state, international bankers, top military leaders, and the heads of the largest corporations in the world. Essentially, the Bilderberg Group already practically rules the world and is bringing it under their planned world government. In a new book entitled, “The Babylon Code,” which I wrote with Pulitzer Prize nominated journalist, Troy Anderson, we go into the details of the secret history of the Bilderberg Group.
In 1991 Bill Clinton came to Bilderberg and met with David Rockefeller, who explained why the North American Free Trade Agreement was a Bilderberg priority. It was this trade treaty, NAFTA, that transferred billions of dollars of wealth from America’s middle class to Third World Nations around the world. The end game for Bilderberg is a one world government, one world religion, and one world economic system, which are outlined in Revelation Chapter 13. They want total control over the masses, whom they see as their slaves. They select and choose almost all presidents and heads of intelligence and law enforcement agencies and they completely control the Democratic and Republican parties. This is why, no matter what the polls say, the Democrats and Republicans will support things like Trade Treaties and numerous other legislation that the American public does not want.
The concept of a two party system in America is a total charade that only an imbecile would believe in. The top men and women in both political parties are all bought and paid for and they get to stay in power to the degree that they do the bidding of their masters, and that is not the American people, but the “shadow government,” which truly runs America. Most of the Republican candidates now running for President are completely under the control of the Bilderberg Group and they have absolutely no loyalty to America and the American people, no matter how many American flags they wave!
Former CBS News president Richard Salant said of the media, “Our job is to give the people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.” Sociologist Hadley Cantril, an expert in mind control and propaganda, wrote “Pyscho-political operations are propaganda campaigns designed to create perpetual tensions and manipulate different groups of people to accept the particular climate of opinion the Council on Foreign Relations seeks to achieve in the world.”
The Bilderberg Group and the CFR exercise enormous control over Evangelical Christianity, churches, and Christian leaders. Through Rockefeller financed programs the Christian church and its leadership in America has largely been transformed into a secular corporation that no longer preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ but a gospel of consumer-marketing and psychological motivation.
The strategy of using trade treaties to go around constitutions and the laws of individual nation states began to take off with the European Union as a potential global government with 109 nations, in Strasbourg, France. The Louis Weis Building was built to look like a modern Tower of Babel with steel and glass. This headquarters of the EU was completed in 1999 and designed by the famous architect Le Corbusier, who also built the United Nations. Along with Jean Monnet, he dreamed of global government or a scientific Utopia ruled by a Technocratic Elite. From the beginning it was conceived to be a rebirth of the Tower of Babel.
Beginning in the 1920s Monnet believed that a European Union could be secretly created by enacting a series of harmless trade treaties, but, concealed by the arcane legal language of each Trade Treaty, a careful strategy was being implemented to create a single European Union, without the masses knowing that they would lose their freedoms and sovereignty. The Monnet method was to enact one seemingly harmless trade treaty after another in order to establish a kind of reborn Roman Empire.
In many respects, the EU is a partial fulfillment of the Fourth Kingdom in Daniel 7:23. “Thus he said, The Fourth Beast shall be the fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down and break it into pieces.” Adolph Hitler and the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini both essentially wished to restore the Roman Empire. Although their empires were defeated in 1945, a secret group of European leaders organized the Council of Europe, and through a coal and steel treaty they created the European Union.
Now, right before your eyes, the same exact strategy is being used to destroy America in the same way sovereign nations were destroyed by the European Union. Through a series of secret trade treaties American is being surrendered to the control of a global government.

It’s been long reported that the money changers operating within the halls of our most hallowed and influential financial institutions have been manipulating everything from stocks and bonds to housing prices and commodities.
While government regulators have completely ignored the machinations taking place, countless investigative reports and evidence submitted to the proper officials show that the games being played with billions, sometimes trillions, of dollars are no longer just conspiracy theories because the conspiracy to corner and control certain markets is, in fact, very real.
The latest example has been highlighted by Keith Neumeyer, the CEO of one of the world’s largest primary producers of silver, First Majestic Silver Corp. (NYSE:AG), in a letter sent to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. In it Neumeyer argues that the evidence for manipulation is clear and that literally tens of billions of dollars in paper-represented silver are being used to manipulate the value of the precious metal:
It occurs to me that such massive speculation in COMEX silver futures may not be in keeping with the spirit and intent of commodity law and may suggest something is wrong with the price discovery process, since real producers and consumers of silver don’t appear to be represented.
The astute observer may realize that Neumeyer’s warnings can be applied across the board to most asset classes including the broader stock market, the housing market, and student loans where the incestuous relationship between mega-bank financiers and regulators has left a complete disconnect in the price discovery process and realistic valuations. To those willing to pay attention, the manipulations, as highlighted by Neumeyer, is very much a coordinated event impacting millions of people and controlled by a concentration of of players.
We feel that an effective and fair pricing mechanism is critical for the healthiness of our industry and for the millions of people impacted by what appears from the outside, to be manipulative practices by a concentration of players.
Can we expect that the government will now move quickly to ensure transparency in markets and criminal charges against those who have been manipulating markets? Zero Hedge Reports:
Don’t hold your breath for a response, however. Recall that less than two years ago, under the aegis of Bart Chilton who is currently a handsomely paid lobbyist at DLA Piper on behalf of the HFT lobby after spending years bashing them while at the CFTC, the commodity regulator closed its “investigation” concerning manipulation in the silver market, without finding anything.
in a non-banana republic, a regulator so humiliated would be forced to at least reopen its “investigation” and admit that it was wrong and has missed glaring examples of market rigging, but in the US that won’t happen.
Which is also why while we salute First Majestic with this first public appeal by a corporation to the CFTC to stop the rigging in the silver market, we have absolute certainty that this too complaint will promptly end up in Mr. Massad trash never to be heard from again.
We know government regulators will likely ignore the concerns of First Majestic Silver Corp., but as Ayn Rand once noted, the manipulations will eventually hit their limit:
We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.
When nature does eventually take its course the price suppression scheme being orchestrated by a few concentrated players will lead to real-world price discovery, at which point precious metals like silver could see a major upwards correction, potentially taking it to never before seen highs.

Warning! This is not sensationalism, conspiracy theory or propaganda, this is truth and you need to understand it.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Would Promote Off-Shoring of American Jobs
Nearly five million American manufacturing jobs – one out of every four – have been lost since implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Since NAFTA, over 60,000 American manufacturing facilities have closed. The TPP would replicate and expand on the NAFTA model.
A leaked text revealed that TPP is slated to include the extreme foreign investor privileges that help corporations offshore more U.S. jobs to low-wage countries. These NAFTA-style terms provide special benefits to firms that relocate abroad and eliminate many of the usual risks that make firms think twice about moving to low-wage countries.
SEE: NAFTA Is 20 Years Old – 20 Facts That Show How It’s Destroying The Economy …And The “Secret” TPP Deal (NAFTA ON STEROIDS)
Under the NAFTA model, U.S. manufacturing imports have soared while growth of U.S. manufacturing exports has slowed.
TPP includes Vietnam, a new favorite for corporations’ job offshoring, because
wages there are even lower than China.
Already, the growth of the U.S. trade deficit with China, since China entered the WTO in 2001, has had a devastating effect on U.S. workers and the U.S. economy. Between 2001 and 2011, 2.7 million U.S. jobs were lost or displaced.
Devastation of U.S. manufacturing drives down wages, erodes the tax base and heightens inequality. Despite major gains in American worker productivity, real median wages hover at 1979 levels. Government data shows that two out of every five displaced manufacturing workers who were rehired in 2012 experienced wage reductions of more than 20 percent. With the loss of manufacturing, tax revenue that could have funded social services or local infrastructure projects has declined, while displaced workers have turned to ever-shrinking welfare programs. This has resulted in the virtual collapse of some local governments in areas hardest hit. (source)
The powers that shouldn’t be are trying to push this corporate coup d’etat (TPP) through sneakily.
We the public are not even privy to its contents. Doesn’t that tell you something? This piece of legislation will have grave repercussions for all the countries included in it … without YOUR knowledge. Where has democracy gone folks?
The TPP, if signed off by US Congress, will officially and legally be the end to any remnants of America as a sovereign, democratic, and free nation. It will give corporations open slather to do as they please and sue us if we don’t agree, for loss of corporate profits!
SEE: Every Single American NEEDS to See This!!!
Representative Alan Grayson has a post on his facebook page about this very TPP deal. He is urging Americans to call their representatives and ask them to stop this. It’s time to excercise our first amendment rights.
(Read Here and CALL) It’s time for Americans to tell our lawmakers to stand up and say no more, hands off. No deals until it conforms to our Constitution. More importantly no deals with countries who abuse even the basics of human rights. It’s time for light to be shed on countries like Thailand, Pakistan and even China. We will be watching this NWO TPP fast track that the puppet Obama administration and globalists of the world are pushing, and will update as it becomes available. Western countries like the US are on the downhill slide economically, middle classes are disappearing, economies are crashing, and you can’t deny this. You can’t deny that our prices for goods are skyrocketing, our wages are sliding down, and our middle class is replaced with welfare and disability. It’s time to wake up. One world economy and government are just as an inch away if we do not act. Don’t take my word for it, research it, and get familiar with it, because we are heading on a fast track to total ruin.

Many responsible citizens believe in paying with cash and storing their cash at home, in a bank, or in a safety deposit box. But banks & governments have suddenly become hell-bent on abolishing your use and storage of cash, by restricting the ways you can spend & deposit your U.S. dollars, and reporting countless cash transactions to the police & government. The question is, why? The frightening fact is, our government has recently instituted numerous programs to track your financial accounts anywhere in the world, but tracking cash is much harder. In addition, our government aggressively pursues numerous programs to confiscate citizen savings & wealth without due process, and it’s much easier to confiscate digital accounts. Thus, cash has become a huge target. So you better act now to move your savings & wealth out of cash and financial accounts, and into private physical assets like gold & silver, before you have nothing left to protect.
The Bankers’ War on Cash
When JPMorgan Chase recently informed customers that the bank will no longer allow cash to be stored in safety deposit boxes, it capped off a frightening trend in banker restrictions on cash usage & storage internationally:
- Citi’s Willem Buiter recently advocated abolishing cash altogether in order to “solve the world’s central banks’ problem with negative interest rates.”
- Chase instituted a new policy which “restricts borrowers from using cash to make payments on credit cards, mortgages, equity lines, and auto loans.”
- The Justice Department has ordered bank employees to consider calling the police on customers who withdraw $5,000 dollars or more.
- HSBC is now interrogating its account holders in the UK on how they earn and spend their money as well as restricting cash withdrawals for customers.
- Banks in the U.S. are making it harder for customers to withdraw and deposit cash, with Chase imposing new capital controls that mandate identification for cash deposits and ban cash being deposited into another person’s account.
- Chase banned international wire transfers while restricting cash activity for business customers (both deposits and withdrawals).
- The French government announced it will restrict French citizens from making cash payments over €1,000 euros.
Why the War on Cash?
At the very least, banks imposing restrictions on the use of cash amounts to an attack on anonymity and an example of how financial institutions are positioning themselves to handle the fallout of the next economic crash – at the expense of customers. But it goes even deep than that. Consider the lengths to which our government has gone to track your money worldwide, and the extent to which they have confiscated citizen savings without due process of law.
As the U.S. spirals toward insolvency due to massive over-spending and Fed money-printing, the U.S. government is pulling out all the stops to gain access to your money – no matter where it is across the globe. First, the government started seizing citizen bank accounts with no due process. Then, the Department of Justice and local police started seizing cash from innocent citizens. Now, the IRS threatens foreign nations and financial institutions across the globe to turn over your private data and financial accounts, with the threat of financial warfare if they don’t comply. They’re even threatening our very allies, despite the fact that they have no authority whatsoever over foreign nations!
So in short, if our government is going to these lengths to track down your money and even confiscate citizen savings without due process, isn’t it much easier to track and control digital accounts than cash? Yes. So how does the government remedy this challenge? They join the banks in a war against cash.

On June 2 a federal judge will decide whether or not the 600-strong Mongols Motorcycle Club can continue to use their logo. Uncle Sam considers biker gangs to be criminal enterprises and wants to be able to go after them like they would any other. Patches are a big deal to clubs, and a win for the government would be a major blow to the Mongols. What’s more, a nasty precedent would be set. One the feds could use against other clubs in the future.
The Mongols are mounting a First Amendment defense, claiming a ruling against them would violate their right to free speech. They’re correct, of course, and in a world of absolute adherence to the Constitution the case would never go before a judge in the first place. But that’s not how the game is played. As we’ve seen time and time again, the nobility are more than willing to change the rules as they see fit.
If fact, in the realm of the government’s war on gangs, the tactic being employed against the Mongols isn’t even the most egregious, Constitutionally speaking. Take a look at what’s happening in Southeast Texas. Last week a Port Arthur teen—and alleged member of a street gang called Surenos 13—was sentenced to nearly a year in jail for violating something called a “gang injunction.” This is the first time the region has utilized this particular law enforcement tool and the teen is the first to be prosecuted under it.
Gang injunctions got their start in California in the 1980s. They were used to create so-called “safe zones” where gang members were forbidden from associating. The legal justification behind them is that gang activity constitutes a public nuisance and therefore violates the law. But these injunctions aren’t just about association. They can also prevent members from wearing certain colors or owning certain items or any number of other wholly arbitrary actions. Whatever law enforcement considers gang activity, essentially.
In the case of the Port Arthur teen, there was a grand total of 37 restrictions placed on him and eight other members of Surenos 13. Among them are bans on things such as staying out after 9:00 PM, possessing aerosol paint cans, and committing crimes. Yes, they actually made it illegal to commit crimes. The kid now in a cage was popped, in part, for the villainous offense of possessing a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle.
And therein lies the rub. Because it’s not illegal to have a phone in your pocket while driving down the road or to have a couple of cans of spray paint in your backpack or to do any of the other myriad activities these gang injunctions might happen to restrict. Well, crimes are illegal, I suppose. But that’s ridiculous on its face. Point is, under the Constitution we as free individuals are supposed to be left alone to do as we will, so long as we don’t harm others. Them’s the rules. Or so we were brought up to believe.
Actually, them’s more than the rules. The Constitution is supposed to tell us who we are. We’re supposed to tear up and grow warm with pride upon reading the words. We’re a great people, after all, born of a great yearning for freedom, and the words are the proof of it. And so on and so forth. Never mind the fact that no one alive today signed the thing and so the obligation to adhere to it doesn’t actually exist. If you choose to prescribe to the fabricated idea of what America is—and there are a great many of us who don’t—then everything, by necessity, hinges upon the Constitution.
So what does it say about us as a country when our political class continuously reinterprets its own founding document to suit the needs of the moment? More importantly, what does it say about us as a people who stand idly by as it happens? None of it…the wars of conquest abroad, the rising police state at home, the torture going on just about everywhere…technically, none of it is allowed to be happening. And yet here we find ourselves, caught between a Constitution-free zone and a free speech cage.
The First Amendment says we have the right to peacefully assemble. The Privileges and Immunities Clause of Article IV says we have the right to travel. They might as well tell us to go piss up a rope. Ask those nine members of Surenos 13 about it. Ask them about safe zones and curfews and restrictions on association. Or go ask the Mongols about patches and the meaning of symbols. While you’re at it, whip out the flag and see if you get any laughs. Because America as it stands today is a bad joke. And the Constitution is the punchline.
