Not Theory … Admitted Fact

There are many documented false flag attacks, where a government carries out a terror attack … and then falsely blames its enemy for political purposes.

In the following instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admit to it, either orally or in writing:

(1) Japanese troops set off a small explosion on a train track in 1931, and falsely blamed it on China in order to justify an invasion of Manchuria. This is known as the “Mukden Incident” or the “Manchurian Incident”. The Tokyo International Military Tribunal found: “Several of the participators in the plan, including Hashimoto [a high-ranking Japanese army officer],have on various occasions admitted their part in the plot and have stated that the object of the ‘Incident’ was to afford an excuse for the occupation of Manchuria by the Kwantung Army ….” And see this.

(2) A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland.

(3) Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building in 1933, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson.

(4) Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939 – while blaming the attack on Finland – as a basis for launching the “Winter War” against Finland. Russian president Boris Yeltsin agreed that Russia had been the aggressor in the Winter War.

(5) The Russian Parliament, current Russian president Putin and former Soviet leader Gorbachev all admit that Soviet leader Joseph Stalin ordered his secret police to execute 22,000 Polish army officers and civilians in 1940, and then falsely blamed it on the Nazis.

(6) The British government admits that – between 1946 and 1948 – it bombed 5 ships carrying Jews attempting to flee the Holocaust to seek safety in Palestine, set up a fake group called “Defenders of Arab Palestine”, and then had the psuedo-group falsely claim responsibility for the bombings (and see this,this and this).

(7) Israel admits that in 1954, an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this).

(8) The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister.

(9) The Turkish Prime Minister admitted that the Turkish government carried out the 1955 bombing on a Turkish consulate in Greece – also damaging the nearby birthplace of the founder of modern Turkey – and blamed it on Greece, for the purpose of inciting and justifying anti-Greek violence.

(10) The British Prime Minister admitted to his defense secretary that he and American president Dwight Eisenhower approved a plan in 1957 to carry out attacks in Syria and blame it on the Syrian government as a way to effect regime change.

(11) The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. As one participant in this formerly-secret program stated: “You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security” (and see this) (Italy and other European countries subject to the terror campaign had joined NATO before the bombings occurred). And watch this BBC special. They also allegedly carried out terror attacks in France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the UK, and other countries.

False flag attacks carried out  through this program include – by way of example only:

(12) In 1960, American Senator George Smathers suggested that the U.S. launch “a false attack be made on Guantanamo Bay which would give us the excuse of actually fomenting a fight which would then give us the excuse to go in and [overthrow Castro]“.

(13) Official State Department documents show that, in 1961, the head of the Joint Chiefs and other high-level officials discussed blowing up a consulate in the Dominican Republic in order to justify an invasion of that country. The plans were not carried out, but they were all discussed as serious proposals.

(14) As admitted by the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in 1962, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. See the following ABC news reportthe official documents; and watch this interview with the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.

(15) In 1963, the U.S. Department of Defense wrote a paper promoting attacks on nations within the Organization of American States – such as Trinidad-Tobago or Jamaica – and then falsely blaming them on Cuba.

 (16) The U.S. Department of Defense even suggested covertly paying a person in the Castro government to attack the United States: “The only area remaining for consideration then would be to bribe one of Castro’s subordinate commanders to initiate an attack on Guantanamo.”

(17) The NSA admits that it lied about what really happened in the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 … manipulating data to make it look like North Vietnamese boats fired on a U.S. ship so as to create a false justification for the Vietnam war.

(18) A U.S. Congressional committee admitted that – as part of its “Cointelpro” campaign – the FBI had used many provocateurs in the 1950s through 1970s to carry out violent acts and falsely blame them on political activists.

(19) A top Turkish general admitted that Turkish forces burned down a mosque on Cyprus in the 1970s and blamed it on their enemy. He explained: “In Special War, certain acts of sabotage are staged and blamed on the enemy to increase public resistance. We did this on Cyprus; we even burnt down a mosque.” In response to the surprised correspondent’s incredulous look the general said, “I am giving an example”.

(20) The German government admitted (and see this) that, in 1978, the German secret service detonated a bomb in the outer wall of a prison and planted “escape tools” on a prisoner – a member of the Red Army Faction – which the secret service wished to frame the bombing on.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

There is no greater danger to a Nation than the people who run it. The politicians take their orders from the N.G.Os., think tanks, large corporations, and Bankers; and the orders are designed and issued by the International Banking Cartel.

All the while, the ignorant citizens believe their government is elected by the people for the benefit of the people, and those who believe their government can and will do the right thing, are just plain ignorant.

All power resides with those who control the world’s commerce.

WAR IS A RICH MANS RACKET!

Keep the people afraid, and they will support their real enemies’,

 AND PEACEFULLY SUBMIT TO TYRANNY!

If Americans had any real courage, the politicians would all be hanging upside down on the street lights.

DHS TO PURCHASE 62 MILLION MORE ROUNDS OF AR15 AMMO

April 18th, 2015 by

http://www.infowars.com/dhs-to-purchase-62-million-rounds-of-ar-15-ammo/

Feds attempting to control the market, dry up supply? Purchase in addition to billions of bullets previously bought by feds.

4-18-2015 8-51-13 AM

By PAUL JOSEPH WATSON

The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase over 62 million rounds of ammo typically used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, just weeks after the ATF was forced to back down on a ban on M855 bullets.

posting on FedBizOpps.gov this week reveals that the DHS is looking to contract with a company to provide 12.6 million rounds of .223 Remington ammunition per year for a period of five years – totaling 62.5 million bullets.

The solicitation explains that the purchase is intended, “to achieve price savings over the current .223 Rem duty ammunition.” The bullets will be used by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents nationwide for “training” purposes.

The .223 Remington is one of the most common rifle cartridges in use in the United States and is used both in bolt action rifles and semi-automatic rifles such as the AR-15 and the Ruger Mini-14.

4-18-2015 8-53-47 AM

In 2013, following concerns about the DHS buying large quantities of several different types of ammunition, weapons manufacturers noted that the feds may have been attempting to control the ammunition market by forcing manufacturers to hold back stock from general sale.

“If they periodically do this in increments, they’re going to control how much ammo is available on the commercial market,” a weapons manufacturer told Michael Savage, adding that the contracts with bullet manufacturers stipulate that everything made goes to the government as the number one priority before it is allowed to enter the commercial market.

In March 2013, Californian Congressman Doug LaMalfa and 14 of his House peers wrote a letter to the Department of Homeland Security demanding to know why the federal agency was buying so many rounds of ammunition and whether the purchases were part of a deliberate attempt to restrict supply to the American people.

“The extraordinary level of ammunition purchases made by Homeland Security seems to have, in states such as my own, created an extreme shortage of ammunition to the point where many gun owners are unable to purchase any,” LaMalfa wrote in the letter.

The bulk purchase follows attempts by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to ban M855 ammo, another popular round for AR-15’s used by hunters. The ATF justified the ban by claiming that the bullets were “armor piercing” and a threat to law enforcement officers.

After being on the receiving end of a huge backlash, the feds were forced to back down and ATF director B. Todd Jones subsequently tendered his resignation. Democratic Congressman Steve Israel called the ATF backdown “cowardly” and vowed to revive the ban.

The ATF’s threat to ban the ammo temporarily caused prices of the bullet to surge more than double in price.

Although federal agencies are increasingly hiding their purchases by limiting public information on fbo.gov, it can still be conservatively estimated from available data that the feds have purchased at least 2.11 billion rounds of ammunition since April 2012:

Date Reported            Agency                 Amount                  Caliber       
April ’12 – Feb ’13           Various             2,000,000,000              Various
03/25/13                             DHS                      360,000                    .40 S&W
07/26/13                            NOAA                      72,000                     .40 S&W
07/26/13                            Army                     2,550,000                7.62x39mm
07/26/13                            Army                       425,000                 9x18mm Makarov
08/19/13                             TSA                       3,454,000                 .357 SIG
02/11/14                             DHS                        141,000                  .308 Remington
04/22/14                            DHS                     25,000,000                12 Gauge
05/22/14                            TSA                      24,000,000                .357 SIG
04/15/15                            DHS                     62,000,000                .223 Remington

TOTAL                                                      2,118,002,000

That’s enough ammo to kill around 30% of the world’s population.

Furthermore, U.S. soldiers were shooting around 5.5 million rounds of ammunition per month during the war in Iraq, or 66 million rounds annually. Using that figure, the feds have stockpiled enough ammo over the past two years to fight a 32-year war.

POSSE COMITATUS WON’T SAVE YOU FROM THE U. S. MILITARY +

 POSSE COMITATUS WON’T SAVE YOU FROM THE U. S. MILITARY +

This is not a government of the people, for the people, by the people. By Simon Black

GOVERNMENT CAN GET YOU ANYTIME IT WANTS. If a person, group of people, or a government has power over you, that means they can control what you do, or force you to do what you don’t want to do. That power comes either by the force of law with corresponding punishments for not obeying the law, or by force of violence using the gun or other weapons that can threaten or take your life, or rob you of your liberty.

In many of our articles over the last 10 years, we have written about the growing power of the American government, at all levels, but mostly at the federal level. No matter what anyone thinks, the evidence points directly at a trend towards absolute power. That is what governments do over time. But the only way to project absolute power is by force and that force comes in the form of civilian or military power where that power can incarcerate you, or kill you …… for any reason!

The Founders went to great lengths to set up a government system that was based on the rule of law, not rule by force. Overtime, as laws proliferated into millions of laws piled on top of one another, enforcement of all those laws became problematic. As more people broke the laws, many without knowing it, government’s response was to increase enforcement.

In a previous article on laws we wrote: Every Time A New Law Is Written

“By just sheer numbers, the more laws that are written, the less likely the entire population will even know about the laws, or understand them, or know of their consequences or penalties for violation, much less be in compliance with them. The consequence of too many laws is that huge segments of the public are totally unaware of their existence. And yet, under the law, ignorance of the law is not a defense. Then, when the hapless individual comes face-to-face with the law, it results in anger and frustration for that individual and a spiraling degradation of freedom and liberty for all of us.”

“Many laws are written at the insistence of lobbying or special interest groups with very narrow and purposely hidden agendas. The public never has an opportunity for real input and society as a whole is not benefited. Partisan politics often compromises a new law into meaningless, often conflicting legislation, leaving loopholes over which lawyers can argue over for decades.”

“In the final analysis, extending legislating and law creation to its absurdity, one arrives at a point where there are so many laws that no one is in compliance and we end up losing our ability to enforce any of them. We become in fact, lawless by the very chaos that the policy makers have created.”

UNLESS THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT SENDS IN FEDERAL TROOPS!

What this all boils down to is that the more laws there are and the more people there are to be controlled by those laws, the greater the need of enforcement by guns. It is clear that government will never allow the people TO BECOME LAWLESS. After all, government’s role is to keep the peace and restore order no matter how many liberties the people have to give up.

As the federal government grew larger and more powerful, it became the logical repository for the military power needed to control all those millions of people to make sure they comply with all the millions of laws that the people know nothing about. They must keep order and control at all costs. But it must be remembered that local law enforcement is trained to use minimal force, where the U. S. Military is trained to use maximum, overwhelming force. That is the undeniable difference and a direct threat to individual liberty.

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 (Pub. L. 18 USC P 1385) was supposed to keep the U. S. Military from enforcing local and federal law, or assisting local law enforcement in that duty. Well before the Posse Comitatus Act was passed, Congress passed the Insurrection Act of 1807 (Pub. L. 10 USC 331 thru 335) which was a “set of laws that govern the ability of the President to deploy U. S. troops on American soil.” Such deployment could only come at the request of a governor of the state in which an event was taking place requiring a larger military force. This all changed after Hurricane Katrina where the Louisiana governor did not request federal troops to restore order. Congress went ahead and modified the Insurrection Act as follows:

“Section 1076 of the law changed Sec. 333 of the ‘Insurrection Act,’ and widened the President’s ability to deploy troops within the United States to enforce the laws. Under this act, the President may also deploy troops as a police force during a natural disaster, epidemic, serious public health emergency, terrorist attack, or other condition, when the President determines that the authorities of the state are incapable of maintaining public order. The bill also modified Sec. 334 of the Insurrection Act, giving the President authority to order the dispersal of either insurgents or ‘those obstructing the enforcement of the laws.’ The law changed the name of the chapter from ‘Insurrection’ to ‘Enforcement of the Laws to Restore Public Order.'”

But ladies and gentlemen, it gets far worse from there. The Department of Defense (DOD) has inserted itself into the use of U. S. Military force on American soil and enforcing local law and assisting local law enforcement. In our research we ran across a 2004 DOD document (republished in 2009) that spells out in detail that Posse Comitatus is dead and the Insurrection Act must be expanded. Here are excerpts from that document.

 Legal Authority to Use Federal Troops to Enforce the Law

The Insurrection Act is the most important legal authority for the President to authorize the use of federal troops to enforce the law. The Insurrection Act (there is really no single ‘Insurrection Act’ per se but this name has been applied collectively to the four statutes noted below) consists of four statutes enacted at different times for different reasons that, when considered as a whole, provide the power that Presidents have used many times as the legal basis for using troops to enforce the law. The four sections of the act are as follows:

  • Title 10, Section 331 was enacted in 1792 in response to challenges to the taxing power of the federal government. It allows the President, at the request of a governor or state legislature, to put down an insurrection by calling into federal service sufficient militia to “suppress the insurrection.”
  • Title 10, Section 332 was enacted in 1861 at the outset of the Civil War. It allows the President to use the armed forces to enforce the laws or suppress a rebellion whenever, in his opinion, unlawful obstructions, combinations, or assemblages or rebellion against the authority of the United States make it impractical to enforce the laws using the course of judicial proceedings.
  • Title 10, Section 333 was enacted in 1869 during the Reconstruction Era. It allows the President to use the armed forces or militia to respond to insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracies that prevent a state government from enforcing the laws.
  • Title 10, Section 334 was enacted in 1861. It prescribes that the President shall issue a proclamation calling on insurgents to disperse before using the militia or armed forces to enforce the law.

The Insurrection Act is the most sweeping authority for the President to authorize and order the use of the federal troops for domestic operations. The President may not act on warning or even at the start of an incident, but must wait until the governor or a state legislature asks for federal assistance. This tends to discourage advance preparations and movements of troops-although Presidents have authorized such actions. This tiered approach in which the federal government acts only after local and state governments have failed, was workable when the cost of delayed response was acceptable, but it is inappropriate for the current situation.

This should scare the pants off you! The older Insurrection Act and the revisions thereto, have all but repealed Posse Comitatus. The President can do what he wishes, anytime he wants with federal troops. That is an awesome power.

We have placed links to the evolution of the “Insurrection Act” and the entire above DOD document on our website for yourreview at this link. You have to read the whole DOD document if you really want to understand what is going on.

Why do you suppose that the U. S. Military has been conducting massive training operations throughout the U. S., like operation Jade Helm 15 as depicted in the above image?

(Jade Helm 15 link)

It isn’t all training for warfare elsewhere on the planet. It is in fact training to put down insurrection by disgruntled Americans and to maintain civil order when local law enforcement can’t do the job, pursuant to the detailed outline in the above referenced DOD document.

It is no coincidence that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has put out lists of potential domestic terrorists that include Christian groups, militias, patriots and returning military vets. They know what is in your mind and what you may be planning and they are planning ahead for that eventuality. It is no accident that the U. S. Military is conducting huge, multi-state training operations, or building FEMA camps for massive internment.

The Progressives have been in virtual control of America for over 100 years. They intend to remain in control, even if they can’t do it by votes. They have taken over the schools, academia, government institutions, the news media and they will maintain their control by force of arms if patriots (conservatives) even so much as hint at challenging their authority. It’s been coming for a long time. It is the final evolution of a liberal, socialist, ideologically driven dictatorship.

For those in our reading audience who think that a group of armed militia can stand up against the full force and fury of the U. S. Military, they had better think again. If we are going to change the course that America is now on, it will have to be by peaceful means.

The only way insurrection or uprising by Americans can win against the U. S. Military is the organization of millions of armed citizens with seasoned leadership, command and control and extensive training, who will put everything on the line to challenge the final militarization of America by federal forces. And they had better hope that the federal troops don’t shoot to kill, because those federal forces are also made up of Americans. If civilian Americans are pitted against federal troop Americans in a shooting war, the U. S. Constitution will be annulled and martial law will be declared. We can almost guarantee that what comes out of that shooting war between Americans and Americans will not be a Constitutional Republic.

We are just as disturbed by Operation Jade Helm 15 as are many other Americans. Consequently, we have filed a formal FOIA request with the Department of Defense, asking some very specific questions about this operation and demanding specific documents. You will find a link to a PDF version of our FOIA request on our website at this link. We will publish responses to the FOIA request in later articles ….. if any.

Please understand that this FOIA request could put a target on our back and put us at considerable risk for having the audacity to challenge them personally. They are already monitoring us and have been for several years. We know just by observing the statistics on our website.

Why do we do this ladies and gentlemen? Because we strongly believe in preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States and the individual liberty it secures. It could be considered treason that our president and all other public office holders and bureaucrats don’t do the same. It is a travesty that millions of Americans won’t join us, or others, in this effort. Their silence could be America’s undoing.

 This is not a government of the people for the people by the people.

 By Simon Black

Founder, SovereignMan.com

Seventy years ago, the United States of America had just emerged from World War II as the most dominant superpower in the world.

At that point America’s economy was the only one left standing.

And the US government had essentially dictated terms in establishing a new global financial system (known as the Bretton Woods agreement).

Doing so thrust the dollar at the center of world trade and banking.

Suddenly every government, central bank, and Major Corporation needed to hold and transact in US dollars… and to establish a banking relationship in the United States.

This gave the United States a tremendous amount of power—power they respected and never abused.

At the same time, high ranking members of the Nazi party had fled to the four corners of the world, often with a vast treasure trove stashed away at Swiss banks.

Most of this wealth was acquired through mass genocide. And yet Switzerland’s secrecy laws protected Nazi clients from having their information turned over to authorities.

No one pressed the issue further.

Think about it—the US government could have done something.

They had the power back then. They could have punished Switzerland with all sorts of banking and financial penalties. They could have threatened to kick them out of the financial system.

But they didn’t.

Instead, in 1945, the US government gave the Nazis a pass.

This is extraordinary when you think about it. Because if you fast forward several decades, we see now that the US government is chasing people to the ends of the earth.

Even more, they’ve brought the full extent of their financial resources to bear against entire banking systems (including Switzerland’s).

They’ve successfully shuttered some of the oldest banks in the world, imprisoned foreign bank executives, and even gotten foreign governments to change their laws.

So who exactly are the nefarious criminal terrorists that Uncle Sam is spending so much effort to chase down?

Americans, specifically Americans who have failed to file administrative paperwork with the IRS to declare overseas financial accounts.

There are countless stories out there of people having their life savings confiscated by the government because they didn’t file a disclosure form (even if there are no back taxes due).

Certainly there is some meaningful percentage of these people who have been hiding undeclared income overseas hoping to never pay tax on it. And it’s important to acknowledge that.

But while this sort of behavior had been going on for decades, it took until 2010 for the US government to pass the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), establishing the power to bully global financial institutions into compliance.

The reason is obvious: the United States government is broke.

Decades ago the future was bright. And they could afford to give the Nazis a pass. They didn’t really need the money, and it wasn’t worth abusing the tremendous financial power that they had been entrusted with.

But today, every penny matters.

The US government is in a position where they have to borrow money just to pay interest on the money they’ve already borrowed.

Their own internal numbers estimate their ‘net worth’ at MINUS $60 trillion, which includes their own estimates of long-term social security liabilities.

So they have no qualms about abusing the trust that the rest of the world has given them… or even creating new powers out of thin air through the most destructive legislation imaginable.

It’s often said that there are only a few times in a person’s life when you can really see what someone’s character is made of—typically times of extreme adversity such as being near death or flat broke.

That’s where the US government is right now. Enabling us to now see its true character.

This is not a government of the people, for the people, by the people. It is a government that takes from the people. By any means necessary. And they grow bolder with each passing day.

No Matter Who Wins the White House the New Boss Will Be the Same as the Old Boss

April 14th, 2015 by

By John W. Whitehead
April 13, 2015

“What the government is good at is collecting taxes, taking away your freedoms and killing people. It’s not good at much else.”—Author Tom Clancy

The American people remain eager to be persuaded that a new president in the White House can solve the problems that plague us. Yet no matter who wins this next presidential election, you can rest assured that the new boss will be the same as the old boss, and we—the permanent underclass in America—will continue to be forced to march in lockstep with the police state in all matters, public and private.

Indeed, as I point out in my new book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it really doesn’t matter what you call them—the 1%, the elite, the controllers, the masterminds, the shadow government, the police state, the surveillance state, the military industrial complex—so long as you understand that no matter which party occupies the White House in 2017, the unelected bureaucracy that actually calls the shots will continue to do so.

Consider the following a much-needed reality check, an antidote if you will, against an overdose of overhyped campaign announcements, lofty electoral promises and meaningless patriotic sentiments that land us right back in the same prison cell.

FACT: For the first time in history, Congress is dominated by a majority of millionaires who are, on average, fourteen times wealthier than the average American. According to a scientific study by Princeton researchers, the United States of America is not the democracy that it purports to be, but rather an oligarchy, in which “economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy.”

FACT: “Today, 17,000 local police forces are equipped with such military equipment as Blackhawk helicopters, machine guns, grenade launchers, battering rams, explosives, chemical sprays, body armor, night vision, rappelling gear and armored vehicles,” reports Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. “Some have tanks.”

FACT: Thanks to an overabundance of 4,500-plus federal crimes and 400,000-plus rules and regulations, it is estimated that the average American actually commits three felonies a day without knowing it. In fact, according to law professor John Baker, “There is no one in the United States over the age of 18 who cannot be indicted for some federal crime. That is not an exaggeration.”

FACT: The number of violent crimes in the country is down substantially, the lowest rate in forty years, while the number of Americans being jailed for nonviolent crimes such as driving with a suspended license is skyrocketing.

FACT: Despite the fact that women only make up 8 percent of the prison population, they are more likely to be strip searched, though not more likely to carry contraband.

FACT: Despite the fact that we have 46 million Americans living at or below the poverty line16 million children living in households without adequate access to food, and at least 900,000 veterans relying on food stamps, enormous sums continue to be doled out for presidential vacations ($16 million for trips to Africa and Hawaii), overtime fraud at the Department of Homeland Security (nearly $9 million in improper overtime claims, and that’s just in six of the DHS’ many offices) HurricaHur, and Hollywood movie productions ($10 million was spent by the Army National Guard on Superman movie tie-ins aimed at increasing awareness about the National Guard).

FACT: Since 2001 Americans have spent $10.5 million every hour for numerous foreign military occupations, including in Iraq and Afghanistan. There’s also the $2.2 million spent every hour on maintaining the United States’ nuclear stockpile, and the $35,000 spent every hour to produce and maintain our collection of Tomahawk missiles. And then there’s the money the government exports to other countries to support their arsenals, at the cost of $1.61 million every hour for the American taxpayers.

FACT: It is estimated that 2.7 million children in the United States have at least one parent in prison, whether it be a local jail or a state or federal penitentiary, due to a wide range of factors ranging from over criminalization and surprise raids at family homes to roadside traffic stops.

FACT: At least 400 to 500 innocent people are killed by police officers every year. Indeed, Americans are now eight times more likely to die in a police confrontation than they are to be killed by a terrorist. Americans are 110 times more likely to die of food-borne illness than in a terrorist attack.

FACT: Police officers are more likely to be struck by lightning than be made financially liable for their wrongdoing.

FACT: On an average day in America, over 100 Americans have their homes raided by SWAT teams. There has been a notable buildup in recent years of SWAT teams within non-security-related federal agencies such as the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Education Department.

FACT: The FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) facial recognition system, which is set to hold data on millions of Americans, will include a variety of biometric data, including palm prints, iris scans, and face recognition data. The FBI hopes to have 52 million images by 2015. NGI will be capable of uploading 55,000 images a day, and conducting tens of thousands of photo searches a day.

FACT: Comprising an $82 billion industry, at least 30,000 drones are expected to occupy U.S. airspace by 2020.

FACT: Devices are now being developed that would allow police to stop a car remotely, ostensibly to end police chases.

FACT: Everything we do will eventually be connected to the Internet. By 2030 it is estimated there will be 100 trillion sensor devices connecting human electronic devices (cell phones, laptops, etc.) to the Internet. Much, if not all, of our electronic devices will be connected to Google, which openly works with government intelligence agencies.

FACT: In 2015 mega-food corporations will begin rolling out high-tech shelving outfitted with cameras in order to track the shopping behavior of customers, as well as information like the age and sex of shoppers.

FACT: If knowledge is power, it’s no wonder Americans are in hot water. According to a study by the National Constitution Center, 41 percent of Americans “are not aware that there are three branches of government, and 62 percent couldn’t name them; 33 percent couldn’t even name one.”

FACT: The United States is one of the highest TV viewing nations. According to a Nielsen report, the average American over the age of two “spends more than thirty-four hours a week watching live television . . . plus another three to six hours watching taped programs.”

FACT: Only six out of every one hundred Americans know that they actually have a constitutional right to hold the government accountable for wrongdoing, as guaranteed by the right to petition clause of the First Amendment.

FACT: According to a Gallup poll, Americans place greater faith in the military and the police than in any of the three branches of government. However, when asked to name the greatest problem facing the nation, Americans of all political stripes ranked the government as the number one concern. In fact, almost eight out of ten Americans believe that government corruption is widespread.

Perhaps the most troubling fact of all is this: we have handed over control of our government and our lives to faceless bureaucrats who view us as little more than cattle to be bred, branded, butchered and sold for profit.

If there is to be any hope of restoring our freedoms and reclaiming control over our government, it will rest not with the politicians but with the people themselves. When all is said and done, each American will have to decide for them-selves whether they prefer dangerous freedom to peaceful slavery.

The true story of how international banksters destroyed our Constitutional Republic from within.

From Olddog: Conversion from PDF to word document is not an easy task. Please excuse the lack of normal formatting. THIS IS A MUST READ DOCUMENT!!!

PLEASE NOTE: The following research was done by John B. Nelson on behalf of the American people and those who considered themselves to be Coloradoans. While Mr. Nelson’s research will shock and dismay most who read it, it will be impossible for anyone to fix our Constitutional Republic if we remain unaware of the fraudulent changes that have been inflicted on our country by the international banksters and their BAR attorneys. The book Fruit from a Poisonous Tree by attorney Melvin Stamper is recommended as a companion to this work. His book is available on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble. Disclaimer The original work and research of John B. Nelson has been reformatted by the AntiCorruption Society.com into this booklet. The references have been relocated into footnotes to make the contents easier to read. John’s work was not copyrighted as he meant to freely share it with all Americans. We are very grateful to John B. Nelson for the many hours (years?) he dedicated to researching the carnage the international bankers and their BAR attorneys have inflicted on the American people. 2 OHN B NELSON TO: The American National People, The People of The State of Colorado, U.S.A. February 21, 1992 DECLARATION OF CAUSE AND NECESSITY TO ABOLISH AND DECLARATION OF SEPARATE AND EQUAL STATION I have enclosed Senate Report No. 93-549, 93rd Congress, 1st Session (1973), “Summary Of Emergency Power Statutes”, consisting of 607 pages, which I believe you will find most interesting. The United States went “Bankrupt” in 1933 and was declared so by President Roosevelt by Executive Orders 6073, 6102, 6111 and by Executive Order 6260 on March 9, 1933,1 under the “Trading with The Enemy Act”2 , and as codified at 12 U.S.C.A. 95a. On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank System, the Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of the United States Treasury for criminal acts. The petition for Articles of Impeachment was thereafter referred to the Judiciary Committee, and has yet to be acted upon.3 Congress confirmed the Bankruptcy on June 5, 1933, and impaired the obligations and considerations of contracts through the “Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard And Abrogate The Gold Clause, June 5, 1933″. 4 The several States of the Union pledged the faith and credit thereof to the aid of the National Government, and formed numerous socialist committees, such as the “Council Of State Governments”, “Social Security Administration” etc., to purportedly deal with the economic “Emergency.” These 1 See: Senate Report 93-549, pgs. 187 & 594 2 Sixty-Fifth Congress, Sess. I, Chs. 105, 106, October 5, 1917 3 See: Congressional Record, pp. 4055-4058 4 See: House Joint Resolution 192, 73rd Congress, 1st Session 3 rganizations operated under the “Declaration of INTERdependence” of January 22, 1937, and published some of their activities in “The Book of the States.” The 1937 edition of the Book of the States openly declared that the people engaged in such activities as the Farming/Husbandry Industry had been reduced to mere feudal “Tenants” on their Land.5 This of course was compounded by such activities as price fixing wheat and grains,6 quota regulations,7 and livestock products,8 which have been consistently below the costs of production, interest on loans and inflation of the paper “Bills of Credit”, leaving the food producers and others in a state of peonage and involuntary servitude, constituting the taking of private property, for the benefit and use of others, without just compensation. NOTE: The Council Of State governments has now been absorbed into such things as the “National Conference Of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws”, whose Headquarters Office is located at 676 North St. Clair Street, Suite 1700, Chicago, Illinois 60611, and “all” being “members of the Bar”, and operating under a different “Constitution and By Laws”, far distant from the depositories of the public Records, has promulgated, lobbied for, passed, adjudicated and ordered the implementation and execution of their purported “Uniform” and “Model” Acts and pretended statutory provisions, to “help implement international treaties of the United States or where world uniformity would be desirable.”9 This is apparently what Robert Bork meant when he wrote “we are governed not by law or elected representatives but by an unelected, unrepresentative, unaccountable committee of lawyers applying no will but their own.”10 This association has been engaged in activities such as turning “Marriage” (licensed) into “International Private Law”, through its International Liaisons, which meet at such places as the Hague Conferences.11 5 Book Of The States, 1937, pg. 155 6 7 U.S.C.A. 1332 7 7 U.S.C.A. 1371 8 7 U.S.C.A. 1903 9 See: 1990/91 Reference Book, National Council Of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws, pg. 2 10 See: The Tempting Of America, Robert H. Bork, pg. 130 4 n April 25, 1938, the Supreme Court overturned the standing precedents of the prior 150 years concerning “common law,” in the Federal Government. “THERE IS NO FEDERAL COMMON LAW, AND CONGRESS HAS NO POWER TO DECLARE SUBSTANTIVE RULES OF COMMON LAW APPLICABLE IN A STATE, WHETHER THEY BE LOCAL OR GENERAL IN THEIR NATURE, BE THEY COMMERCIAL LAW OR A PART OF THE LAW OF TORTS.”12 The Common Law is the fountain source of Substantive and Remedial Rights, if not our very Liberties.13 The members and association of the Bar thereafter formed committees, granted themselves special privileges, immunities and franchises, and held meetings concerning the Judicial procedures, and further, to amend laws “to conform to a trend of judicial decisions or to accomplish similar objectives”, including hodgepodging the jurisdictions of Law and Equity together, which is known today as “One Form Of Action.”14 NOTE: The enumerated, specified and distinct Jurisdictions established by the ordained Constitution (1789), Article III, Section 2, and under the Bill of Rights (1791), Amendment VII, were further hodgpodged and fundamentally changed in 1982 to include Admiralty Jurisdiction, which was once again brought inland. 11 See: Handbook Of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws, 1966 Ed., pg. 156-157 12 See: Erie Railroad Co. Vs. Tompkins, 304 U.S. 64, 82 L.Ed. 1188 13 See: Stephen, A Treaties On The Principles Of Pleading, Introduction, Pg. 23; Hemmingway, History Of Common Law Pleading As Evidence Of The Growth Of Individual Liberty And Power Of The Courts, 5 Alabama Law Journal 1; Swift vs. Tyson, 16 Peters 1, 10 L.Ed. 865; Constitution, Article III, Section 2, Amendments VII, IX and X. 14 See: Constitution And By Laws, Article 3, Section 3.3(c), 1990-91 Reference Book, supra, see also, Colorado Methods of Practice, West Pub., Vol. 4, pgs. 2- 3, Authors Comments 5 This is the FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE necessary to effect unification of CIVIL and ADMIRALTY PROCEDURE. Just as the 1938 Rules ABOLISHED THE DISTINCTION between ACTIONS AT LAW and SUITS IN EQUITY, this change would ABOLISH THE DISTINCTION between CIVIL ACTIONS and SUITS IN ADMIRALTY.”15 The United States thereafter entered the Second World War during which time the “League of Nations” was reinstituted under pretense of the “United Nations”16, and the “Bank For International Settlements” reinstituted under pretense of the “Bretton Woods Agreement”17 as the “International Monetary Fund” (The Fund)18 and the International Bank For Reconstruction And Development” (The Bank)19. The United States as a corporate body politic (artificial) came out of World War II in worse economic shape than when it entered, and in 1950 declared Bankruptcy and “Reorganization.” The Reorganization is located in Title 5 of United States Codes Annotated. The “Explanation” at the beginning of 5 U.S.C.A. is most informative reading. The “Secretary of Treasury” was appointed as the “Receiver” in Bankruptcy.20 The United States went down the road and periodically filed for further Reorganization. Things and situations worsened, having done what they were Commanded NOT to do,21 and in 1965 passed the “Coinage Act of 1965″ completely debasing the Constitutional Coin (gold & silver i.e. Dollar).22 At the signing of the Coinage Act on July 23, 1965, then President Lyndon B. Johnson stated in his Press Release that: 15 Federal Rules Of Civil Procedure, 1982 Ed., pg. 17, also see, Federalist Papers No. 83; Declaration Of Resolves Of The First Continental Congress; Oct. 14, 1774, Declaration Of Cause And Necessity Of Taking Up Arms; July 6, 1775, Declaration of Independence; July 4, 1776, Bennet vs. Butterworth, 52 U.S. 669 16 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 287 et. seq. 17 See: 60 Stat. 1401, 22 U.S.C.A. 286 et. seq. 18 [Referredf to as the IMF] 19 [Known today as the World Bank] 20 See: Reorganization Plan No. 26, 5 U.S.C.A. 903, Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5967 21 See: Madison’s Notes , Constitutional Convention, August 16, 1787, Federalist Papers No. 44 [formed a corporation masquerading as a government] 22 See: 18 U.S.C.A. 331 & 332, U.S. vs. Marigold, 50 U.S. 560, 13 L.Ed. 257 6 When I have signed this bill before me, we will have made the first fundamental change in our coinage in 173 years. The Coinage Act of 1965 supersedes the Act of 1792. And that Act had the title: An Act Establishing a Mint and Regulating the Coinage of the United States….” “Now I will sign this bill to make the first change in our coinage system since the 18th Century. To those members of Congress, who are here on this historic occasion, I want to assure you that in making this change from the 18th Century we have no idea of returning to it.” It is important to take cognizance of the fact that NO Constitutional Amendment was ever obtained to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE, amend, abridge or abolish the Constitutional mandates, provisions or prohibitions, but due to internal and external diversions surrounding the Viet Nam War etc., the usurpation and breach went basically unchallenged and unnoticed by the general public at large, who became “a wealthy man’s cannon fodder or cheap source of SLAVE LABOR.”23 Congress was clearly delegated the Power and Authority to regulate and maintain the true and inherent “value” of the Coin within the scope and purview of Article I, Section 8, Clauses 5 & 6 and Article I, Section 10, Clause 1, of the ordained Constitution (1787), and further, under a corresponding duty and obligation to maintain said gold and silver Coin and Foreign Coin at and within the necessary and proper “equal weights and measures” clause.24 Those exercising the Offices of the several States, in equal measure, knew such “De Facto Transitions” were unlawful and unauthorized, but sanctioned, implemented and enforced the complete debauchment and the resulting “governmental, social, industrial economic change” in the “De Jure” States and in United State of America,25 and were and are now 23 See: Silent Weapons For Quiet Wars, TM-SW7905.1, pgs. 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13 & 56 24 See also: Bible, Dueteronomy, Chapter 25, verses 13 thru 16, Proverbs, Chapter 16, verse 11, Public Law 97-289, 96 Stat. 1211 25 See: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5936, 5945, 31 U.S.C.A. 314, 31 U.S.C.A 321, 31 U.S.C.A. 5112, C.R.S. 11-61-101 C.R.S. 39-22-103.5 and C.R.S. 18-11-203 7 under the delusion that they can do both directly and indirectly what they were absolutely prohibited from doing.26 In 1966, Congress being severely compromised, passed the “Federal Tax Lien Act of 1966″, by which the entire taxing and monetary system i.e. “Essential Engine”27 was placed under the Uniform Commercial Code.28 The Uniform Commercial Code was of course promulgated by the National Conference of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws in collusion with American Law Institute for the “banking and business interests.”29 The United States being engaged in numerous United Nation conflicts, including the Korean and the Viet Nam Conflicts, which were under direction of the United Nations,30 and agreeing to foot the bill,31 and not being able to honor their obligations and re-hypothecated debt credit, openly and publicly dishonored and disavowed their “Notes” and “Obligations”32 i.e. “Federal Reserve Notes” Through Public Law 90- 269, Section 2, 82 Stat. 50 (1968) to wit: 26 See: also, Federalist Papers No. 44, Craig vs. Missouri , 4 Peters 903 27 See: Federalist Papers No. 31 28 See: Public Law 89-719 , Legislative History, pg. 3722, also see; C.R.S. 5-1- 106 29 See: Handbook Of The National Conference Of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws.

The first sentence of section 15 of the Federal Reserve Act33 is amended by striking ‘and the funds provided in this Act for the redemption of Federal Reserve Notes’.” Things steadily grew worse and on March 28, 1970, then President Nixon issued Proclamation No. 3972, declaring an “emergency” because the Postal Employees struck against the de facto government (?) for higher pay, due to inflation of the paper “Bills of Credit.”34 Nixon placed the U.S. Postal Department under the control of the “Department of Defense.”35 The System had been faltering for a decade, but the bench mark date of the collapse is put at August 15, 1971. On this day, then President Nixon reversed U.S. International Monetary Policy by officially declaring the non-convertibility of the “U.S. dollar” (the Federal Reserve Note (FRN)) into gold.”36 On September 21, 1973, Congress passed Public Law 93- 110, amending the Bretton Woods Par Value Modification Act37 and reiterated the “Emergency”38, and which included “reports on foreign currency transactions.”39 This act further declared in Section 2 (b) that: “No provision of any law in effect on the date of enactment of this Act, and no rule, regulation, or order under authority of any such law, may be construed to prohibit any person from purchasing, holding, selling, or otherwise dealing with gold.” On January 19, 1976, Marjorie S. Holt noted for the record, a second “Declaration Of INTER-dependence” and clearly identified the U.N. as a “Communist” organization, and that they were seeking both production 33 12 U.S.C. 391 34 See: Senate Report No. 93-549, pg. 596 35 See: Department Of the Army Field Manual, FM 41-10 (1969 ed. 36 See: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5937 & Senate Report No. 93-549, Foreword, pg.

Atkins et al. complained that “As a result of inflation, the compensation of federal judges has been substantially diminished each year since 1969, causing direct and continuing monetary harm to plaintiffs…the real value of the “dollar” (FRN’s) decreased by approximately 34.5 percent from March 15, 1969 to October 1, 1975….As a result, plaintiffs have suffered an unconstitutional deprivation of earnings”, and in the prayer for relief claimed “damages for the constitutional violations enumerated above, measured as the diminution of his earnings for the entire period since March 9, 1969.” It is quite apparent that the persons holding and enjoying Offices of Public Trust, Honor and/or Profit knew of the emergent problem and sought protection for themselves, to the damage and injury of the People and Children, who were classified as “a club that has many other members” who “have no remedy.” And knowing that “heinous” acts had been committed, stated that they [judges/lawyers] would not apply the Law, nor would any substantive remedy be applied (“checked more or less, but never stopped”) “until all of us [judges] are dead.” Such persons fraudulently swore an Oath to uphold, defend and preserve the sovereignty of the Nation and several Republican States of the Union, and breached the Duty to protect the People/Citizens and their Posterity from fraud, imposition, avarice and stealthy encroachment.41 This is verified in Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5944, which states: “Moving to a floating exchange rate for international commerce means private enterprise and not central governments bear the risk of currency fluctuations.” 40 See: Congressional Record, January 19, 1976, Extension of remarks; also see, 8 U.S.C.A. 1101 (40) , 50 U.S.C.A. 781 & 783 41 See: Atkins et al. vs. U.S., 556 F.2d 1028, pg. 1072, 1074, The Tempting of America, supra, pgs. 155-159 also see, 5 U.S.C.A. 5305 & 5335, Senate Report No. 93-549, pgs. 69-71, C.R.S. 24-75-101 10 numerous serious debates were held in Congress, including but not limited to, Tuesday, July 27, 1976,42 concerning the International Financial Institutions and its operations. Representative, Ron Paul, Chairman of the House Banking Committee, made numerous references to the true practices of the “International” financial institutions, including but not limited to, the conversion of 27,000,000 (27 million) in gold, contributed by the United States as part of its “quota obligations”, which the International Monetary Fund (Governor-Secretary of Treasury) sold 43, under some very questionable terms and concessions. 44 On October 28, 1977 the passage of Public Law 95-147, 91 Stat. 1227 declared most banking institutions, including State banks, to be under direction and control of the corporate “Governor” of the International Monetary Fund. 45 The Act further declared that: “(2) Section 10(a) of the Gold Reserve Act of 193446 is amended by striking out the phrase ‘stabilizing the exchange value of the dollar’…” (c) The joint resolution entitled ‘Joint resolution to assure uniform value to the coins and currencies of the United States’, approved June 5, 193347 shall not apply to obligations issued on or after the date of enactment of this section.” The International Organizations, Corporations and Associations, had refused to pay their debts and could not pay their debts, and determined that they could pass the loss of their non-redeemable, non-current notes, bonds and evidences of debt off on others, and thereby crown their fraud 42 See: Congressional Record – House, July 27, 1976 43 See: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5945 & 5946 44 Also see: The Ron Paul Money Book, (1991), by Ron Paul, Plantation Publishing, 837 W.

Intrinsically, a dollar bill is just a piece of paper. Deposits are merely book entries. Coins do have some intrinsic value as metal, but generally far less than their face amount….” Compare this with the United States Constitution, which says: “No State shall make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debt…” and which also says: “Congress shall have the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof…” (Italics added for emphasis; this paragraph added to the original John B. Nelson document of February 21, 1992 on July 18, 1999 to reiterate what was stated previously in this document and to demonstrate, first hand, yet another way the Constitution is being usurped, in fact and in intent). “In the absence of legal reserve requirements, banks can build up deposits by increasing loans and investments so long as they keep enough currency on hand to redeem whatever amounts the holders of deposits want to convert into currency. This unique attribute of the banking business was discovered several 48 See: Letter, October 26, 1989 from Department of Treasury, Russell L.

At one time, bankers were merely middlemen. They made profit by accepting gold and coins brought to them for safekeeping and lending them to borrowers. But they soon found that the receipts they issued to depositors were being used as money since whoever held them could go to the banker and exchange them for metallic money. Then bankers discovered that they could make loans merely by giving borrowers their promises to pay (bank notes). In this way, banks began to create money. More notes could be issued than the gold and coin on hand because only a portion of the notes outstanding would be presented for payment at any one time. Enough metallic money had to be kept on hand, of course, to redeem whatever volume of notes was presented for payment. Transaction deposits are the modern counter-part of bank notes. It was a small step from printing notes to making book entries to the credit of borrowers which the borrowers, in turn, could “spend” by writing checks, thereby “printing their own money.”53 Fifty nine (59) years is NOT “temporary.” It’s a permanent state of “Emergency”, and was clearly instituted, formed and erected within the Union through gross usurpations, abridgments, malfeasance and breach of legal duties, and the continual contrivance, misrepresentation, conversion, fluctuations, fraud and avarice of the International Financial Institutions, Organizations, Corporations and Associations, including the Federal Reserve, their “fiscal and depository agent” 54. This profligate practice has led to such “Emergency” legislation as the “Public Debt Limit-Balance Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985″, Public Law 99-177, etc. The government by becoming a corporator, 55 lays down its sovereignty and takes on that of a private citizen. It can exercise no power which is 53 See: Modern Money Mechanics , a workbook on deposits currency and bank reserves., 1982 Rev. Ed., Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, P.O.

Honor is earned by honesty and integrity, not under false and fraudulent pretenses, nor will the color of the cloth one wears cover-up the usurpations, lies, trickery and deceits. When Black is fraudulently declared to be White, not all will live in darkness. As astutely observed by Will Rogers, “there are men running governments who shouldn’t be allowed to play with matches”, and is as applicable today as Jesus’ statements about Lawyers. The contrived “emergency” has created numerous abuses and usurpations, and abridgments of delegated Powers and Authority. As stated in Senate Report 93-549: “Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency. In fact, there are now in effect four presidentially proclaimed states of national emergency: In addition to the national emergency declared by President Roosevelt in 1933, there are also the national emergency proclaimed by President Truman on December 16, 1950, during the Korean conflict, and the states of national emergency declared by President Nixon on March 23, 1970, and August 15, 1971. These proclamations give force to 470 provisions of Federal Law. These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily exercised by the Congress, which affect the lives of American citizens in a host of alien-compassing manners. This vast range of powers, taken 56 See: The Bank of the United States vs. Planters Bank of Georgia, 6 L. Ed. (9 Wheat) 244, U.S. vs. Burr, 309 U.S. 242 57 22 U.S.C.A 286, et seq., C.R.S. 11-60-103 58 See: 31 U.S.C.A. 5323 14 together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal constitutional process. Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens.” (See: Foreword, pg. III). The “Introduction”, on page 1, begins with a phenomenal declaration, to wit: “A majority of the people of the United States have lived all of their lives under emergency rule. For 40 years, freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have in varying degrees been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency…” According to the research done in 16 American Jurisprudence, 2nd Edition, Sections 71 and 82, no “emergency” justifies a violation of any Constitutional provision. Arguendo, “Supremacy Clause” and “Separation of Powers”, it is clearly admitted in Senate Report No. 93- 549 that abridgment has occurred. The statements heard in the federal and state Tribunals, on numerous occasions, that Constitutional arguments are “immaterial”, “frivolous” etc., is based upon the concealment, furtherance and compounding of the Frauds and “Emergency” created and sustained by the “Expatriated”, ALIENS of the United Nations and its Organizations, Corporations and Associations.59 8 U.S.C.A. 1481 is one of the controlling statutes on expatriation, as is 22 U.S.C.A. 611, 612 & 613 and 50 U.S.C.A. 781. The Internal Revenue Service entered into a “service agreement” with the U.S. Treasury Department60 and the Agency for International Development, pursuant to Treasury Delegation Order No. 91. The 59 See: Letter , Insight Magazine, February 18, 1991, pg. 7, Lowell L. Flanders, President, U.N. Staff Union, New York 60 See: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26 15 agency For International Development is an International paramilitary operation, 61 and includes such activities as “Assumption of full or partial executive, legislative, and judicial authority over a country or area.”62 It is to be further observed that the “Agreement” regarding the Headquarters District of the United Nations was NOT agreed to 63 and is illegally in the Country in the first instant. The International Organizational intents, purposes and activities include complete control of “Public Finance” i.e. “control, supervision, and audit of indigenous fiscal resources; budget practices, taxation, expenditures of public funds, currency issues, and banking agencies and affiliates.”64 This of course complies with “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars” Research Technical Manual (TM-SW7905.1), which discloses a declaration of war upon the American people (See: pg. 3 & 7), monetary control by the Internationalist, through information etc. solicited and collected by the Internal Revenue Service 65 and who is operating and enforcing the seditious International program. (See: TM-SW7905.1, pg. 52). The 1985 Edition of the Department Of Army Field Manual, FM 41-10 further describes the International “Civil Affairs” operations. At page 3-6 it is admitted that the A.I.D. is autonomous and under direction of the International Development Cooperation Agency, and at page 3-8 that the operation is “paramilitary.” The International Organization(s) intents and purposes was to promote, implement, and enforce a “DICTATORSHIP OVER FINANCE IN THE UNITED STATES.”66 It appears from the documentary evidence that the Internal Revenue Service Agents. etc., are “Agents of a Foreign Principal” within the meaning and intent of the “Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938.” They are directed and controlled by the corporate “Governor” of “The 61 See: Department Of The Army Field Manual, (1969) FM 41-10, pgs. 1-4, Sec. 1-7(b) & 1-6, Section 1-10(7) (c)(1), 22 U.S.C.A. 284 62 (See: FM 41-10, pg. 1-7, Section 110(7)(c)(4)) also see, Agreement Between The United Nations And The United States Of America Regarding The Headquarters Of the United Nations, Section 7(d) & (8), 22 U.S.C.A 287 (1979 Ed.) at pg. 241). 63 See: Congressional Record – Senate, December 13, 1967, Mr. Thurmond 64 See: FM 41-10, pgs.2-30 thru 2-31, Section 251.

Along with the other documentary evidence submitted herewith, this should absolve any further doubt as to the true character of the party. Such restrictions as “For the general welfare and common defense of the United States” 76 apparently aren’t applicable, and the fraudulent re-hypothecated debt credit will be merely added to the insolvent nature of the continual “emergency”, and the reciprocal socio/economic repercussions laid upon present and future generations. Among other reasons for lack of authority to act, such as a Foreign Agents Registration Statement, 22 U.S.C.A. 612 and 18 U.S.C.A. 219 & 951, military authority cannot be imposed into civil affairs.77 The United Nations Charter, Article 2, Section 7, further prohibits the U.N. from “intervening in matters which are essentially within the domestic 67 See: Public Law 94-564, supra, pg. 5942, U.S. Government Manual 1990/91, pgs. 480 & 481, 26 U.S.C.A 7701 (a)(11), Treasury Delegation Order No. 150- 10 68 22 U.S.C.A 286 & 286a 69 22 U.S.C.A. 611 (c)(ii) 70 Tax-pecuniary contribution, Blacks Law Dic. 5th ed. 71 22 U.S.C.A 611(c)(iii) 72 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 611 (c)(2) 73 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 263a, The United States Government Manual, 1990/91, pg. 385, see also, The Ron Paul Money Book, pg. 250 – 251 74 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 262c(b) 75 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 285g, 22 U.S.C.A. 287j 76 See: Constitution (1787), Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 77 See: Department Of The Army Pamphlet 27100-70, Military Law Review, Vol. 70 17 jurisdiction of any state…” Korea, Viet Nam, Ethiopia, Angola, Kuwait, etc., etc., are evidence enough of the “BAD FAITH” of the United Nations and its Organizations, Corporations and Associations, not to mention the seizing of two day care centers in the State of Minnesota by their agents, and holding the children as collateral/hostages for payment/ransom of their fraudulent, dishonored, re-hypothecated debt credit, worthless securities. Such is the “Rule Of Law” “as envisioned by the Founders” of the United Nations. Such is Communist terrorism, despotism and tyranny. ALL WERE AND ARE OUTLAWED HERE. I hope this communication finds you well and mentally strong for the occasion. It is quite apparent that the “Treasonous” and “Seditious” are brewing up a storm of untold magnitude. Bush’s public address of September 11, 1991 (See: Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents), should further qualify what is being said here. He admitted “Interdependence” 78, “One World Order” 79, affiliation and collusion with the Soviet Union Oligarchy 80, direction by the U.N.81 , etc. You might also find it interesting that Treasury Delegation Order No. 92 (enclosed) states that the I.R.S. is trained under direction of the Division of “Human Resources” (U.N.) and the Commissioner (INTERNATIONAL), by the “Office of Personnel Management.” In the 1979 Edition of 22 U.S.C.A. 287, The United Nations, at pg. 248, you will find Executive Order No. 10422. The Office of Personnel Management is under direction of the Secretary General of the United Nations. And as stated previously, the I.R.S. is also a member in a one hundred fifty (150) nation pact called the “International Criminal Police Organization”, found at 22 U.S.C.A. 263a. The “Memorandum & Agreement” between the Secretary of Treasury/Corporate Governor of “The Fund” and “The Bank” and the Office of the U.S. Attorney General would indicate that the Attorney General and his associates are soliciting and collecting information for Foreign Principals.82 78 See also: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5950 79 See: also: Extension Of Remarks, January 19, 1976, Marjorie S. Holt, 8 U.S.C.A. 1101(40) 80 50 U.S.C.A. 781 81 22 U.S.C.A. 611 82 See: also, The United States Government Manual 1990/91, pg. 385, also see, The Ron Paul Money Book, supra, pg. 250, 251, 26 I.R.C. 7401 18 t is worthy of note that an Attorney/Representative is required to file a “Foreign Agents Registration Statement” pursuant to 22 U.S.C.A. 611(c) (1)(iv) & 612, if representing the interests of a Foreign Principal or Power.83 On January 17, 1980, the President and Senate confirmed another “Constitution”, namely, the “Constitution of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization”, found at Senate, Treaty Document No. 97-19, 97th Congress, 1st Session. A perusal of this Foreign Constitution should more than qualify the internationalist intents. The “Preamble”, Article 1, “Objectives” and Article 2, “Functions”, clearly evidences their intent to direct, control, finance and subsidize all “natural and human resources” and “agro-related as well as basic industries”, through “dynamic social and economic changes” “with a view to assisting in the establishment of a new international economic order.” The high flown rhetoric is obviously of “Communist” origin and intents. An unelected, unrepresentative, unaccountable oligarchy of expatriates and aliens, who fraudulently claim in the Preamble that they intend to establish “rational and equitable international economic relations”, yet openly declared that they no longer “stabilize the value of the dollar” nor “assure the value of the coin and currency of the United States” is purely misrepresentation, deceit and fraud.84 This was augmented by Public Law 101-167, 103 Stat. 1195, which discloses massive appropriations of re-hypothecated debt credit for the general welfare and common defense of other Foreign Powers, including “Communist ” countries of satellites, International control of natural and human resources, etc., etc. A “Resource” is a claim of “property” and when related to people constitutes “slavery.” It is now necessary to ask which Constitution they are operating under. The “Constitution For The New-states of The United States”, which was located at Liberty Lobby, 300 Independence Ave., SE, Washington, D.C. 20003, was the subject matter of the book entitled “The Emerging Constitution” by Rexford G. Tugwell, which was accomplished under the auspices of the Rockefeller tax-exempt foundation called the “Center For The Study of Democratic Institutions.” The People and Citizens of this Nation were forewarned against formation of “Democracies.” 83 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 613, Rabinowitz vs. Kennedy, 376 U.S. 605, 11 L. Ed. 2d 940, 18 U.S.C.A. 219 & 951 84 See: Public Law 95-147, 91 Stat. 1227, at pg. 1229 19 Democracies have ever been the spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”85 This Alien Constitution, however, has nothing to do with democracy in reality. It is the basis of and for a despotic, tyrannical oligarchy. Article I, “Rights and Responsibilities”, Sections 1 and 15  evidence their knowledge of the “emergency.” The Rights of expression, communication, movement, assembly, petition and Habeas Corpus are all excepted from being exercised under and in a “declared emergency.” The Constitution for the New-states of America, openly declares, among other seditious things and delusions that “Until each indicated change in the government shall have been completed the provisions of the existing Constitution and the organs of government shall be in effect”.86 All operations of the national government shall cease as they are replaced by those authorized under this Constitution.”87 This is apparently what Burger was promoting in 1976, after he resigned as Supreme Court Justice and took up the promotion of a “Constitutional Convention.” No trial by jury is mentioned, “JUST” compensation has been removed, along with being informed of the “Nature & Cause of the Accusation” etc., etc., and every one will of course participate in the “democracy.” This Constitution is but a reiteration of the Communist Doctrines, intents and purposes, and clearly establishes a “Police Power” State, under direction and control of a self appointed oligarchy. Apparently the present operation of the “de facto” government is under Foreign/Alien Constitutions, Laws, Rules and Regulations. The overthrow of the “essential engine” declared in and by the ordained and established Constitution for the United States of America (1787), and by and under the “Bill of Rights” (1791) is obvious. The covert procedure used to implement and enforce these Foreign Constitutions, Laws, Procedures, Rules, Regulations, etc., has not, to my knowledge, been collected and assimilated nor presented as evidence to establish seditious collusion and conspiracy. 85 See: Federalist Papers No. 10, also see, The Law, Fredrick Bastiat, Code Of Professional Responsibility, Preamble 86 See: Article XII, Section 3 87 See: Article XII, Section 4 20 importunately and Unfortunately in my Land it is necessary to seek, obtain and present EVIDENCE to sustain a conviction and/or judgment. Our patience and tolerance for those who pervert the very necessary and basic foundations of society has been pushed to insufferable levels. They have “fundamentally” changed the form and substance of the de jure Republican form of Government, exhibited a willful and wanton disregard for the Rights, Safety and Property of others, evinced a despotic design to reduce my people to slavery, peonage and involuntary servitude, under a fraudulent, tyrannical, seditious foreign oligarchy, with intent and purpose to institute, erect and form a “Dictatorship” over the Citizens and our Posterity. They have completely debauched the de jure monetary system, destroyed the Livelihood and Lives of thousands, aided and abetted our enemies, declared War upon us and our Posterity, destroyed untold families and made homeless over 750,000 children in the middle of winter, afflicted widows and orphans, turned Sodomites loose amongst our young, implemented foreign laws, rules, regulations and procedures within the body of the country, incited insurrection, rebellion, sedition and anarchy within the de jure society, illegally entered our Land, taken false Oaths, entered into Seditious Foreign Constitutions, Agreements, Placations, Confederations, and Alliances, and under pretense of “emergency”, which they themselves created, promoted and furthered, formed a multitude of offices and retained those of alien allegiance to perpetuate their frauds and to eat out the substance of the good and productive people of our Land, and have arbitrarily dismissed and held mock trials for those who trespassed upon our Lives, Liberties, Properties and Families and endangered our Peace, Safety, Welfare and Dignity. The damage, injury and costs have been higher than mere money can repay. They have done what they were COMMANDED NOT TO DO. The time for just correction is NOW! Sincere consideration of “Presentment” to a Grand Jury under the ordained and established Constitution for the United States of America (1787), Amendment V is in order. Numerous High Crimes and Misdemeanors have been committed under the Constitution for the United States of America, and Laws made in pursuance thereof, and under the Constitution for the State of Colorado, and the Laws made in Pursuance thereof, and against the Peace and Dignity of the People, including but not limited to, C.R.S. 18-11-203 which defines and prescribes punishment for “Seditious Associations” which is applicable to the other constitutions, and the intents and professed purposes of their 21 organizations, Corporations and Associations. If the Presentment should be obstructed by the members of the Bar, ARREST THEM. I could go on but the story is long! I hope this information and research is of assistance to you. Much remains to be uncovered and disclosed, as it is necessary and imperative to secure the Lives, Liberties, Property, Peace and Dignity of the people and our Posterity. Good Hunting and may the Good Lord be with you in all your endeavors. P.S. In addition, I am yet expecting a copy of the “Service Agreement”, (T.D.O. 91). It was located in the Department of Treasury, office of the Assistant General Counsel, (International Affairs), Russell L. Munk, 1500 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20220. Efforts are being made to obtain a copy, but so far have been obstructed by the BAR. If anyone knows where and how a copy can be obtained please do so immediately, the documents are necessary and imperative. It ought to be most informative! By the way it’s against the law for an insolvent to make a loan or to try to fraudulently collect thereon 88 It should be further noted that an “Alien” or “Denizen” cannot sit on a Jury 89, nor hold a Public Office 90. The “out of court” summary determinations upon matters in issue is purely “Administrative” procedure. 91 The jury, if any, is reduced to an “advisory jury” position, and is more than likely arrayed as a “homage” jury. 88 See: Neal et al. vs. Clark, 251 P. 2d 903 89 See: 3 Am. Jur. 2D §40 90 Also see: 50 U.S.C.A. 781(9) & 842 91 See: 1 Am. Jur. 2d §78 22 U.S.C.A. 701 – 703 should be of interest concerning “Judicial Review” of Agency actions. It can be found in most States under such headings and Acts as the “Administrative Procedures Act” or the “Administrative Reorganization Act.” The de facto Federal/International chartered “Institutions”, their Officers, Employees, Servants, Agents and Representatives are subject to and should be turned over to a Court of Law for prosecution, trial, and judgment according to Law.92 “FRAUD vitiates the most solemn Contracts, documents and even judgments.”93 I believe that the statement made in Cohen vs. Virginia, 6 Wheat 264, 5 L.Ed. 257 (1821) is worthy of note: “We [Courts] have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which is not given. THE ONE OR THE OTHER WOULD BE TREASON TO THE CONSTITUTION.”94 ******* DECLARATION OF SEPARATE AND EQUAL STATION WHEN IN THE COURSE OF HUMAN EVENTS . . .

The functionaries of every government have propensities to command at will the liberties and property of their constituents.

Their words, oaths or signatures are of no meaning or value; their intent and purpose is to deceive, cheat, steal, lie, defraud and destroy. The seditious covert conspiracy and collusion of certain Organizations, Corporations and Associations to damage, injure, oppress, threaten, intimidate and enforce their fraudulent, foreign, socialist, Communist, “Democracy” and foist their delusions upon the Citizens and children of this Land, and to corrupt the de jure Public Offices established to accomplish the purposes set forth in the “Preamble’ to the ordained and established Constitution is cause and necessity enough. One again finding our safety, happiness and liberties to be in imminent danger, it has become necessary and imperative to our rights, privileges, immunities, lives, liberties and property and that of our posterity, to declare our separate and equal station, and exercise our Right and Duty to throw off and abolish the form and operation of the de facto, fraudulent, seditions “state.”96 95 Albert E.

One Last Look At The Real Economy Before It Implodes Part 4

April 10th, 2015 by

Brandon Smith
Activist Post

In the first three installments of this series, we examined the realities behind supply and demand, unemployment and personal debt, and national debt. As has been proven in each consecutive article with ample evidence, mainstream establishment numbers are, for the most part, utter garbage. They are not legitimate. They are meaningless.

The figures and stats that do have some truth to them are so obscured from the public view and unreported by the media that they may as well be state secrets. The average person has no clue of their existence because his primary sources of information are establishment-dominated. Even MSM talking heads and economic “analysts” are so mesmerized by the false version of the economic world that they have no point of reference when suddenly confronted with singular facts. Some people call this catastrophic behavior a “positive feedback loop.” It is a mainstream echo chamber that has become a financial tomb.

Now that I have covered the lies within our economy that I can prove absolutely, it is time to move on to the lies that are more difficult to pin down. These lies often slip past our investigations because the hard data that could be used to expose them is simply not available to the general public. In fact, much of the data is not even available to government officials. I am, of course, talking about the hard data behind the activities of central banks across the globe — the International Monetary Fund, the Bank for International Settlements and the Federal Reserve in particular. In this installment, we will explore the purpose of these lies; to hide the imminent destruction of our currency — by hook, by crook and by fiat.

In Part 3 of this series, real U.S. liabilities were revealed to far exceed official stats given by the Treasury Department (upward of $200 trillion currently owed, not owed in some distant future where none of us will be alive to worry about it). The debt singularity most responsible for this problem has been created through entitlement programs, as well as a Social Security program that the government uses as its own ever-cycling taxpayer supported personal slush fund, triggering a debt accumulation of more than $8 trillion per year.

How does our government (or any government with a central bank) continue to function monetarily if it is generating far more debt than it will ever be able to pay off in tax revenues? Well, our system does not really “function.” It just refuses to fully die. And, it does this through fiat money creation.

The quantitative easing programs, which allowed the Federal Reserve to conjure massive stores of fiat money out of thin air and purchase U.S. Treasury bonds (among other things), were a blatantly open admission by bureaucrats and central bankers alike that the government has not been capable of sustaining its own operations without fiat aid.

I’ll say it again: QE programs are in and of themselves hard evidence of government insolvency.  Solvent governments do not need to monetize their own debt obligations with a printing press.
After the limited TARP audit, which reveled a money creation scheme in excess of $16 trillion (overnight swaps are still a devaluing action though some MSM pundits argue they are not “debt creation”), there has been little information available to the public in regards to the true level of paper and digital money conjured from the ether.  We have no idea to what extent the dollar has ultimately been devalued, and we won’t know until foreign investors and banks finalize their decoupling from the U.S. (a process that will likely accelerate this year).

One might argue, though, that since the finalization of the taper and the end of QE3 and the bailout programs overall, our system must be amply flush with cash yet again and the printing bonanza must have been worth the risk. Why else would the taper have been instituted at all? I would argue and have argued in the past that the taper was instituted not in preparation for economic recovery, but in preparation for economic collapse. The QE bailouts have stopped because they no longer serve any purpose in propping up the false economy.

For instance, the inspector general for the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is now suggesting yet another bailout for socialist New Deal failures Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, after the Obama administration reserved the right to take all profits from the conservatorship beginning in 2012. That’s right, all that money that Fannie and Freddie supposedly made and paid back didn’t make an ounce of difference, as the federal government now steals profits in order to pay off other debts. In the meantime, companies like Blackstone reap the benefits as they purchase and bid on hundreds of thousands of homes for pennies on the dollar, turn them into rentals and artificially support the illusion of a housing recovery in the United States. (I would also note that Blackstone has conveniently served as an “adviser” to the U.S. Treasury throughout the Fannie/Freddie bailouts.)

As referenced in Part 1 of this series, stimulus measures have absolutely failed to inspire any semblance of recovery in consumer demand, and global demand for goods is imploding.

As referenced in Part 2, real employment has not improved throughout the duration of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, quantitative easing and zero interest-rate policy. In fact, it only seems to have stalled unemployment at about 23 percent.

As referenced in Part 3, stimulus actions have only served to create even more unmitigated debt while producing no tangible results other than a massive bubble in stock markets.

Poverty is at record levels. Welfare demand is at record levels. Average wages are falling, and prices on essential goods (except oil at this time) are rising. Global demand is visibly sliding into the same territory as in 2008/2009. Housing markets have become a corporately boosted feudalistic farce. And unemployment continues at a depressing level; meanwhile, people aren’t even counted as unemployed anymore because they’ve been jobless for so long.

At this point, at the onset of spring 2015, I think it is safe to say that alternative economic analysts have been right all along in our assertions that central bank stimulus measures are completely useless. Though some of the slimier day traders like to argue that they “tripled their profits” during the stimulus period and our “doom and gloom” means nothing to them, in their naivety they would be missing the bigger picture. You don’t play the collapse. In the end, the collapse will play you.

Now, it would seem as though the Federal Reserve has failed in every aspect of its bailout quest. But what are the consequences of this debacle?  The result is the displacement of U.S. economic standing. The U.S. is being made economically irrelevant.

China has surpassed the U.S. as the world’s largest exporter/importer and has long been far superior to the U.S. in manufacturing capability, making China the most valuable economic partner in the world. According to the IMF, China is now superior to the U.S. in trade standing and is soon to be the largest economy on the planet.

China has recently launched its regional Asian Development Bank, a kind of Asian World Bank. And nearly 50 countries, including European allies to the U.S., have rushed to sign on.

The talk is even growing within mainstream circles that China is about to decouple from the U.S. economy and, along with the BRICS nations, structure a new Asian-centric financial system that will “stick it” to the Western financial elites. This, however, is too simplistic a notion.

We are talking about the REAL economy in this series; and in the real economy, no nation with a central bank actually “breaks” from the New World Order. In fact, all conflicts between the East and West are only serving to further the cause of globalists and Fabian socialists.

China alone does not have the capacity to replace the U.S. as a primary driver for the global economy, nor does the Yuan have the capacity to replace the dollar as a world reserve currency. However, this is not China’s goal. It never has been China’s goal. China’s only purpose in its historic fiscal expansion has been to achieve inclusion in what the IMF calls the “global economic reset.” Part of this reset is the introduction of the IMF global currency basket system, or Special Drawing Rights (SDR), as a kind of centralized control mechanism for all currencies around the world. The IMF and China have continuously called for the SDR basket system to replace the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency.

I covered this developing scheme in great detail in my article ‘The Economic End Game Explained’.

Despite the hopes of some alternative writers that China will somehow break the chains of the central banking monopoly, every Chinese action since at least 2008 has been in preparation to become a full slave nation under the control of IMF policy. China has now officially submitted its currency (the Yuan) for inclusion as a reserve currency in the SDR basket.  China’s central bank has openly called for the IMF to take a dominant role in the management of the world’s currencies through the SDR basket system:

The world economic crisis shows the “inherent vulnerabilities and systemic risks in the existing international monetary system,” Gov. Zhou Xiaochuan said in an essay released Monday by the bank. He recommended creating a currency made up of a basket of global currencies and controlled by the International Monetary Fund and said it would help “to achieve the objective of safeguarding global economic and financial stability.”

The IMF conference on the SDR, which takes place every five years, is set to begin preliminaries in May and finish in October or November. It is widely expected that China’s currency will indeed be included in the SDR this year, that this will adversely affect the dollar’s standing as the world reserve currency, and that the U.S. will have little capacity to stop such a development. That’s because American veto power within the IMF is likely to be removed, due to a lack of approval on funding measures and policy changes put to Congress in 2010.

In numerous articles over the past couple of years I have warned that the destruction of U.S. position within the IMF would be blamed on “political gridlock” over the refusal by Congress to confirm policy changes from 2010, and the brunt of the blame would be placed on “conservatives”.  This past week my suspicions were supported by the statements of Larry Summers, a former Treasury Secretary and elitist who was partially responsible for the end of Glass-Steagall and the creation of the derivatives bubble, and the man who claimed “history will overwhelmingly approve QE”.  Summers decried the end of the U.S. as the “underwriter of the global economic system”,  also stating:

Largely because of resistance from the right, the US stands alone in the world in failing to approve the International Monetary Fund governance reforms that Washington itself pushed for in 2009. By supplementing IMF resources, this change would have bolstered confidence in the global economy. More important, it would come closer to giving countries such as China and India a share of IMF votes commensurate with their new economic heft…

With China’s economic size rivaling America’s and emerging markets accounting for at least half of world output, the global economic architecture needs substantial adjustment. Political pressures from all sides in the US have rendered it increasingly dysfunctional…

Avid enthusiasm for China’s new regional bank has put the U.S. on the defensive, as supposed allies are joining the chorus calling for China to join the SDR.

This would make the Yuan the first currency not fully convertible to join the SDR basket. Meaning, it is difficult to directly invest in Yuan compared to investing in dollars. But this is exactly what the IMF wants.

The Asian Times put it rather bluntly but honestly:

Currently, central banks can’t include yuan holdings in their foreign exchange reserves. However, via inclusion in the SDR basket, the currency will effectively enjoy a “back door” where convertibility is concerned. The upshot, according to Citibank, means increased yuan demand from central banks and further integration of the currency into global capital market flows.

Importantly, China has espoused an “internationalisation” of reserve currencies away from U.S. dollar hegemony and dependencies on local economic fluctuations on exchange rates and stability. The yuan inclusion in the basket would be a step towards a more multi-lateral currency world. While full convertibility may still be far away, China’s ability to have a global reserve currency may soon be upon us.

Yes, that’s right, China’s inclusion in the SDR will HELP the process of marginalization of the dollar and aid in the ascendance of the SDR as a world reserve mechanism. And as China becomes a currency powerhouse in its role as the No. 1 economy in the world, the only way central banks around the planet can benefit or “invest” in the Yuan will be by stockpiling SDRs! Demand for SDRs will be cleverly boosted by natural demand for the Yuan. This is how a global currency structure begins.

The only true beneficiaries of this cycle will be the IMF and those elites who desperately want a totally centralized global economic system.

In the meantime, as the dollar loses its world reserve status, it loses the ONLY pillar of support keeping its value somewhat stable. As the dollar falls, U.S. citizens will be reduced to Second World or Third World economic expectations. Employment and wages will continue to dissolve, while the margins between the “haves” and “have nots” will continue to grow. In the worst-case scenario, total chaos would result followed by an international intervention to “save us” from ourselves. Our currency would likely be permanently pegged to the SDR basket, just as Argentina’s was pegged to our dollar after its collapse. And the IMF would own the U.S. rather than the U.S. owning the IMF, as is the common delusion.

As stated earlier, Federal Reserve stimulus actions “seem” to have failed miserably. Now our nation is facing a firestorm. But I would submit that the Federal Reserve has not failed in its mission. The Fed’s purpose is not to defend the stability of the U.S. economy and the dollar; the Fed’s purpose is to destroy the stability of the U.S. economy and the dollar. Thus, the Fed has succeeded in its mission. And I believe a full audit of Fed policies and actions would prove this fact beyond a doubt.

I will continue to outline the endgame for globalization that is under way in the next installment of this series, including how central banks in foreign nations collude with each other and are managed by supranational entities like the IMF and the BIS. The implosion of America serves a very particular purpose. It is not a product of blind coincidence, fate, political stupidity or corporate greed. It is an engineered event meant to clear the way for an even more sinister economic environment designed to establish a final economic empire with the purpose of permanently enslaving us all.

THE TRUTH SCARES THE COWARDS

April 9th, 2015 by

2-23-2015 1-19-07 PM

Within the articles I have posted on http://anationbeguiled.com and http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com  you will find information that is controversial, infuriating, and totally unexpected by the average American who has considered themselves patriotic, honest, and informed citizens. Unfortunately, most will find this information is not what they WANT to believe, because they WANT America to be a shinning light to the rest of the world; as they were taught in the government controlled education system. They also do not want to be some poor fool who has been beguiled by their government all their lives, and believing what they were taught is much easier than accepting the truth. It is natural for people to want other’s to think good of them, and for that reason they become cognitive dissonant.

However, those who instinctively compare this information to what they see happening and compare it to what they have been taught, will come away with an inner rage at the powers that be and will have a permanent grudge against those who approve of the lies and methods used to fool us.

It’s not easy to accept the DE Facto legal system that makes us all slaves to their corrupt hierarchy; when we have considered our selves the brightest light of freedom all our lives.  Nor is it easy to accept the fact that we do not really own anything; we just rent it from them along with the responsibility to keep it working so they can continue charging us to rent it.

What most people do not consider is our obedience to their draconian legal system is something we can change; if we are willing to fight back. If we muster up the courage to die for our freedom, then there is nothing they can do but end our misery. So we must now face the big question. Is being a miserable slave all our life better than dying? I don’t think so, because if we are not willing to die for our freedom then we are useless, putrid, cowards that do not deserve to live free. Our real enemy is our fear and ignorance. That’s what prevents us from being willing to die fighting. Now you understand why so few are willing to learn and believe. They’re cowards who prefer slavery to freedom. As I said before, knowledge is what produces rage, and rage produces courage, so I have endeavored to supply you with what they have done, how they did it and got away with it, but ultimately the reader must be intelligent enough to recognize the truth by comparing what we were taught to what really happened. We are a subjugated Nation, divided, confused, and afraid. Read, learn, and compare! Then you will have the courage to regain our freedom.

 

God Bless America!

FASCISM UPDATE: This Large Bank Just Announced They’re Closing ALL Gun Shop Accounts

April 8th, 2015 by

announced-theyre-closing-all-gun-shop-accounts/

fascism2 Gun Shops1 Second Amendment1 SunTrust Bank1

Obama’s backdoor obliteration of America’s Second Amendment to the Constitution just got a big boost.

While the Obama Regime can’t openly or legally take away Americans’ right to bear arms, through stealth tactics, using its willing accomplices in crony corporatism to put the squeeze on the supply chain to the Second Amendment, gun shops and gun manufacturers, or buying up all the ammo themselves, is their underhanded, “progressive” way to accomplish the same goal.

When American Gun & Pawn of Brooksville, Florida, received the following letter from SunTrust Bank, they were shocked and outraged:

4-8-2015 2-10-49 PM

As you can see, the fascist letter from SunTrust Bank informs the gun shop that they will no longer be serving them (it’s a good thing they aren’t a pizzeria in Indiana!), and that they must quickly close all of their accounts, or the bullying bank will close them if the customer doesn’t by the deadline.

Now the bank isn’t honest enough to say in the letter the real reason that they’re using Nazi-like tactics, forcing the closure because their customer happens to be a gun shop, they use flowery and vague, politically-correct sophistry in one of the worst “Dear John” letters of all time.

American Gun & Pawn, after receiving the letter, wrote about it on their Facebook wall on March 27. They said that the bank told them they aren’t just picking on them, but are closing ALL accounts of ALL legal gun shops across the country:

“This is the craziest thing I have ever seen. This is how these people are coming after your guns. If they can do this to a legal business, what can they do to you?”

 “When I called them, they said they are closing Gun stores accounts all over the country! We are a licensed and legal company! These big companies that infringe on our constitutional rights need to be held accountable!!”

If all banks follow their “Dear Leader” the way SunTrust Bank does, Obama won’t have to eliminate the Second Amendment, because there will be no place to buy guns and ammo.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Every gun owner in America should close their account with Sun Trust and send a nasty letter to the Bank Manager as to why they are leaving. If you don’t stand up and take action, then bend over for your masters, and let them give it to you where it really hurts, then smile and say thank you. There’s no place left in America for pussies.

 

FEDS GEARING UP FOR CIVIL UNREST WITH AMMO BUILDUP AND PARAMILITARY TRAINING

April 7th, 2015 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/NWV-News/news435.htm

4-7-2015 9-50-48 AM

By NWV Senior Political News Writer, Jim Kouri
© 2015 NewsWithViews.com

A NewsWithViews.com news story last June quoted Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal accusing President Barack Obama and other political leaders of waging war against religious liberty and education and saying that a “rebellion is brewing in the U.S. with people ready for a hostile takeover of the nation’s capital.”

Many believe that the federal government is actually provoking a rebellion. Those who’ve studied national politics and security believe that President Obama and his consortium of left-wing radicals, Islamists and One World Government operatives are hoping that American citizens will take to the streets in droves and armed and ready to be heard by an oppressive government. Such a scenario would offer the Washington elites the desired “excuse” to deploy the government agencies and the military which seems to be the opinion of Gov. Bobby Jindal and others.

Gov. Jindal is quoted by Fox News as saying he could “sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American dream for our children and grandchildren.”

Gov. Jindal spoke in Washington, D.C, at the annual Faith and Freedom Coalition conference. During his presentation he accused Obama, his minions and sycophants of waging war against certain American values “The Pelican State governor is right on,” said John Snyder, who is also on the board of advisers for the National Association of Chiefs of Police and a former NRA magazine editor.

Although news stories and op-eds on the Internet for years predicted the mysterious and foreboding purchase by Homeland Security of billions — that right, not millions but billions — of rounds of ammunition, stories appearing in News with Views, the Drudge Report, Fox News and a few other news outlets appear to be drawing more and more attention to federal agencies militarizing their workers.

Most disheartening is the enormous number of weapons and ammunition being purchased and stockpiled by federal agencies that aren’t even law enforcement or military in nature. Federal agencies not usually associated with civil unrest are stockpiling weapons and ammunition. For example, the Social Security Administration, are trying to put a damper on the speculation — noting the ammunition is “standard issue” and simply used for mandatory federal training sessions.

When asked about their buildup of weapons and ammunition, the Social Security Administration stated: “The SSA is processing more applications than ever, which means more traffic in SSA offices. Employee and visitor safety is the highest priority for OIG, which, together with the Federal Protective Services and local law enforcement, has jurisdiction over SSA workplaces.”

The SSA also claimed, “Our special agents need to be armed and trained appropriately. They not only investigate allegations of Social Security fraud, but they also are called to respond to threats against Social Security offices, employees, and customers.”

The bullet purchases drew widespread attention as the web site Infowars.com published several stories on them that were linked off the widely read Drudge Report and other sites. Infowars.com catalogued a string of recent purchases — first by the Department of Homeland Security, then by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and then the Social Security Administration.

A new Homeland Security purchase order listed on FedBizOrgalso raises an eyebrow or two, given the heated and divided political and social climate at hand. Just look at what happened in Ferguson.

The purchase information reads: “U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intends to solicit responses to Request for Information (RFI) 20082225-JTC for Less Lethal Specialty Munitions (LLSM) for use by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). CBP is interested in incorporating commercial and industry practices that support this type of procurement. To accomplish this, CBP intends to make industry a partner in all facets of the acquisition process, specifically by considering existing market capabilities, strengths and weaknesses for the acquisition of this commodity.”

The hardware build-up has been called a “domestic arms race,” and it’s starting to gain credibility with mainstream media journalists. The 1.6 billion rounds of ammo being purchased by Homeland Security represents “…a stockpile that would last DHS over a century. To claim that it’s to ‘get a low price’ for a ridiculously wasteful amount is an argument that could only fool a career civil servant.”

This huge arms race of weapons, ammo and armored vehicles by the federal government is taking place right in the middle of the claimed “sequester” which the government claims has sharply curtailed its ability to spend money. So while Obama and his minions threaten to release criminals onto the streets of America, behind the scenes the government is actually building up an ammo stockpile so huge that it could wage a 20-year war against the American people.

Government Buildup

The new Defense Authorization Act all but erases decades of U.S. government compliance with the letter and the spirit of the Posse Comitatus Act 1878, a law that prohibits the use of the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions within the United States, according to police officials and others opposed to the militarizing of American law enforcement.

Provisions in the new authorization act allow military reservists — Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines — to be called to duty and deployed in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency within the homeland, as well as mobilization of reserve units to support counterterrorism and security missions overseas, according to the American Forces Press Service’s Donna Miles.

Originally, such deployments were the duty of National Guard, which are under the control of state governors who would call in guardsman as needed to support civil police forces, fire departments and other emergency personnel.

However, when Hurricane Katrina fiercely struck the Gulf Coast in 2005, especially the city of New Orleans, active-duty service members became “the federal default force,” according to Miles.

But the reason for that deployment was the inability of Louisiana’s governor and New Orleans’ mayor to command and control the police and emergency responders. Now the U.S. Congress and the Obama Administration have acquired the authority to use military resources in such emergencies, including deploying soldiers during an insurrection.

Ingram also noted that “the Bush Administration and congress toyed with the idea of practically militarizing FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Administration), which is basically a ‘bean-counting’ agency. But that idea went nowhere. However, with Obama in the Oval Office, the news media may be more willing to cover up abuses to patriotic Americans.””Is anyone surprised at this latest disregard for the constitution and tradition? The military forces in the U.S., Canada and Mexico have been training in urban warfare and response to terrorist threats such as weapons of mass destruction (WMD) scenarios,” said police lieutenant Walter Ingram of the Morningside, N.Y., police department.

The Psychological Reasons Why American Soldiers Would Fire On American Citizens

April 6th, 2015 by

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/the-psychological-reasons-why-american-soldiers-would-fire-on-american-citizens_09112014

This analysis has been contributed by Dave Hodges and was originally published at The Common Sense Show.

 We live in chaotic times. Many feel that our fragile economy could come crashing down at any time. One devastating terrorist attack, false flag attack or natural disaster could lead to an unprecedented disaster and martial law would be declared. Some Americans would take to the streets and the only remaining question is whether or not American soldiers, called to the scene, would restore order by firing upon American citizens when ordered to do so?

4-6-2015 2-48-00 PM

This scenario and the resulting public execution of American citizens for engaging in protesting has happened many times in our past. For those old enough to remember, the 1970 Kent State massacre should come to mind as the Ohio National Guard opened fire on protesting college students on the campus of Kent State University. But for those who believe that this was merely an anomaly, let’s examine what the field of psychology has discovered about the answer to this question.

4-6-2015 2-49-05 PM

The Oath Keepers Cannot Save Protesters

Some of our citizens are deluded into a false sense of security by the group known as Oath Keepers. It is a well-intentioned effort to remind both law enforcement and the military to uphold the Constitution and to disobey unlawful orders which would bring harm to American citizens. Under this false sense of security, many in the American public really believe that American troops will not fire upon American citizens. Unfortunately, the field of psychology demonstrates why only a minority of soldiers will actually resist committing atrocities against the American people.

Conformity to Group Norms: The Solomon Asch Experiment

Do you think of yourself as a conformist or a non-conformist? If you ask most people the same question, you would find that most people consider themselves to be a non-conformist and would be able to stand up to a group when they know they are right. However, can nonconformists actually resist the peer pressure to blend in with the rest of their peers?

In the 1950’s, Polish born psychologist, Solomon Asch, conducted a conformity study. The participants signed up to participate in a psychology experiment in which they are asked to complete a vision test. This was a deception. The real experiment attempted to answer the question, can people resist peer pressure to conform to a false belief?

Seated in a room with the other participants, the research participants are shown a line segment and then asked to choose the matching line from a group with three segments of different lengths.

4-6-2015 2-50-05 PM

The experimenter subsequently asked each participant individually to select the matching line segment. On some occasions everyone in the group chooses the correct line, but occasionally, the other participants unanimously declare that a different line is actually the correct match. Unknown to the main subject of the experiment, everyone else in the experiment is a confederate and their answers have been preplanned for the purpose of determining whether, or not, the participant’s answer can be determined by the people deliberately giving the wrong answer.

Nearly 75 percent of the participants in the conformity experiments went along with the rest of the group at least one time. After combining the trials, the results indicated that participants conformed to the incorrect group answer approximately one-third of the time.

At the conclusion of the experiments, participants were asked why they had gone along with the rest of the group. In most cases, the students stated that while they knew the rest of the group was wrong, they did not want to risk facing personal criticism. A few of the participants were so weak-minded that they suggested that they actually believed the other members of the group were correct in their answers.

These results suggest that conformity can be influenced both by a need to fit in and a belief that other people are smarter or better informed. Given the level of conformity seen in Asch’s experiments, conformity can be even stronger in real-life situations where stimuli are more ambiguous or more difficult to judge. For example, a soldier, in attempting to decide if they will fire upon innocent civilians, will be forced to weigh their own risk. If they fail to obey the command to fire upon American citizens, will they face disciplinary action, or even death?

Asch also found that having one of the confederates give the correct answer while the rest of the confederates gave the incorrect answer dramatically lowered conformity. In this situation, just five to ten percent of the participants conformed to the rest of the group. Allies, committed to a central belief, is what drives many in the alternative media to relentlessly pursue the truth and then inform as many people as will listen.

The Milgram Experiment and Group Think

The world of psychological research provides the definitive answer as to whether we should fear our military in the coming storm ahead in the form of a phenomenon called group think. Group think is often described as a decision-making process whereby the group members go along with what they believe is the consensus. Group think has also been used to describe individual acquiescence to authority even when the authority has limited power to enforce compliance. Group think often causes groups to make hasty, irrational decisions, where individual doubts are set aside, for fear of upsetting the group’s leadership and balance.

Just how far will people go to please authority figures and subsequently do what they know to be immoral? The first known laboratory test for groupthink occurred in 1963 by Yale professor, Stanley Milgram. Subjects for this landmark study were recruited for the Yale study through newspaper ads and direct mail. The participants were men between the ages of 20 and 50, from all educational backgrounds, ranging from an elementary school dropout to participants with doctoral degrees.

4-6-2015 2-51-04 PM

Milgram wanted to determine what percentage of people would willingly administer enough progressive electric shocks which would result in death simply based on the orders of a perceived authority figure (i.e., the experimenter).

 There were three participants in the experiment:

4-6-2015 2-51-49 PM

  1. The Teacher was the real subject in the experiment. Their role was to

administer shocks for each wrong answer provided by the learner. How far would they go, was the true subject of the experiment.  Would they actually kill a person for failing to provide the correct answer on a word pair test? Would they mindlessly follow the orders of the experimenter to continue with the abuse, regardless of the results and obvious harm being perpetrated upon the pretend victim in the experiment?

  1. The second participant, the Learner, was actually a plant in the experiment. The Learner would sit in an adjacent room and pretend to be shocked for each wrong answer that they would purposely give. Eventually, they would cry out for help and beg the Teacher to stop administering the electric shocks. Their cries included pleas of mercy that were often based on an unknown level of self-expressed cardiac distress that they were pretending to experience.
  2. The Experimenter was a stern looking fellow who carried a clipboard, wore a lab coat, and would urge the Teacher to continue regardless of the make believe pleas of the Learner.

The “Teachers” were told by the experimenter that they would be participating in an experiment to test the effects of punishment on learning. However, as has already been stated, this was not the goal of the experiment.

The “Teacher” was given a list of word pairs which was used to teach the Learner. The Learner was actually a confederate, or a plant, in the experiment. The Teacher would then read the first word of each pair and read four possible answers. The Learner would deliberately press the wrong button to indicate his response. Since the answer was incorrect, the Learner would receive an electric shock, with the voltage progressively increasing with each wrong answer. Therefore, the
subjects believed that for each wrong answer, the Learner was receiving an ever increasing level of actual shocks which would eventually result in death.

In reality, there were no shocks. After the confederate (i.e., Learner) was separated from the subject, the confederate set up a tape recorder integrated with the electro-shock generator, which played pre-recorded sounds of pain and distress for each successive level of shock. After a number of voltage level increases, the Learner would bang on the wall which divided him from the subject (teacher). After several instances of banging on the wall and complaining about his heart condition, the learner provided no further responses to questions and no further complaints. The fate of the Learner was left to the imagination of the teacher. The silence was met with the command to continue with the experiment. Although the Learner was not being harmed, the Teacher believed that they were administering progressively dangerous shocks. From the instrumentation panel, the Teacher could clearly see that their shocks were approaching the level of lethality. Was the Teacher being forced to capitulate and continue with the experiment? Quite the contrary was true, the prompts to continue administering shock were encouraged by minimal prompts and absolutely no threats were offered by the Experimenter.

If at any time the subject hesitated or expressed a desire to discontinue the experiment, the subject was given a planned and verbatim succession of verbal prompts by the experimenter:

  1. “Please continue.”
  2. “The experiment requires that you continue.”
  3. “It is absolutely essential that you continue. ”
  4. “You have no other choice, you must go on.”

If the Teacher still wished to stop after having listened to four successive verbal prompts, the experiment was discontinued. Otherwise, the experiment was terminated after the subject had administered the lethal 450-volt shock three times in succession.

Milgram expected that less than one percent would actually administer a fatal electric shock. The actual results were so stunning that he decided to film the results on the final day, fearing that nobody would believe his results. And what were the results? Despite expressing some measure of discomfort and the minimal use pressure, in Milgram’s first set of experiments, 65% (26 out of 40) of the subjects administered the experiment’s final and hypothetically fatal 450-volt shock. Amazingly, no participant steadfastly refused to give further shocks before the 300-volt level!

Milgram’s results were confirmed when Dr. Thomas Blass performed a meta-analysis on the results of repeated performances of the experiment. Blass found that the percentage of participants who were willing to administer fatal voltages remains remarkably constant, between 61% and 66%.

The results of Milgram’s and Blass’ work are stunning in their final conclusion which demonstrated that almost two-thirds of all Americans will mindlessly follow the commands of a “perceived” authority figure even when the authority figure has no real power over the people. Can you imagine how the 65% rate will dramatically climb when they authority figure had “real” power over the people being ordered to fire upon American citizens?

The Zimbardo Prison Study

In 1971, psychologist Philip Zimbardo and his colleagues set out to create an experiment that looked at the impact of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. Zimbardo, a former classmate of Stanley Milgram was interested in expanding upon Milgram’s research. He wanted to further investigate the impact of situational variables on human behavior.

The research question the researchers asked was how would the participants react when placed in a simulated prison environment? Zimbardo had previously speculated that, “Suppose you had only kids who were normally healthy, psychologically and physically, and they knew they would be going into a prison-like environment and that some of their civil rights would be sacrificed. Would those good people, put in that bad, evil place, or, would their goodness triumph?” The results of the experiment haunt many of us in the psychology field, today, as we ponder how far would Americans go in the enforcement of a brutal and vicious tyranny?

Zimbardo set up a mock prison in the basement of Stanford University’s psychology building, and then selected 24 undergraduate students to play the roles of both prisoners and guards.  The assignment of roles was accomplished through random selection. The participants were selected because they had no criminal background, lacked psychological issues and had no major medical conditions. Therefore, the participants in the study were far more psychologically and physically healthy than any group of modern day military force, police force or FEMA camp guards. The volunteers agreed to participate for a one- to two-week period.

Prisoners were to remain in the mock prison 24-hours a day for the duration of the study. Guards, on the other hand, were assigned to work in three-man teams for eight-hour shifts. After each shift, guards were allowed to return to their homes until their next shift. Researchers were able to observe the behavior of the prisoners and guards through the use of hidden cameras.

The experiment was originally scheduled to last two weeks, but it had to be stopped after just six days due to what was happening to the student participants. The guards became exceptionally abusive and the prisoners began to show signs of extreme stress, anxiety and nervous breakdown.

The prisoners and guards were allowed to behave in any manner they chose. However, the interactions were generally hostile or even dehumanizing. The guards began behaving in an aggressive and abusive manner toward the mock prisoners. Subsequently, nearly all of the prisoners became passive and depressed. Five of the prisoners began to experience such severe and acute anxiety, that they had to be released from the study early.

Zimbardo later wrote in his book The Lucifer Effect that “Only a few people were able to resist the situational temptations to yield to power and dominance while maintaining some semblance of morality and decency; obviously I was not among that noble class” . Even Zimbardo lost his objectivity and the experiment was only halted when his girl friend at the time, Christina Maslach, a graduate psychology student, voiced objections and threatened to break off her relationship with Zimbardo if the experiment continued.

The Stanford Prison Experiment demonstrates the powerful role that the situation can play in human behavior. Because the guards were placed in a position of power, they began to behave in ways they would not normally act in their everyday lives or in other situations. By putting a prison guard uniform on the participants, issuing sun glasses and a baton made the participant guards act in accordance with their perceived role. This has dire consequences for the ability of uniformed personnel to resist orders from their commanding officers to fire upon American citizens. People will act according to the role that they have been assigned to play. Finally, based upon the Zimbardo Prison Experiment, what kind of treatment could you expect at a FEMA camp?

Conclusion

Will American soldiers fire upon Americans in times of civil unrest? The evidence has been presented to you, what do you now believe?

  1. The Teacher was the real subject in the experiment. Their role was to

administer shocks for each wrong answer provided by the learner. How far would they go, was the true subject of the experiment.  Would they actually kill a person for failing to provide the correct answer on a word pair test? Would they mindlessly follow the orders of the experimenter to continue with the abuse, regardless of the results and obvious harm being perpetrated upon the pretend victim in the experiment?

  1. The second participant, the Learner, was actually a plant in the experiment. The Learner would sit in an adjacent room and pretend to be shocked for each wrong answer that they would purposely give. Eventually, they would cry out for help and beg the Teacher to stop administering the electric shocks. Their cries included pleas of mercy that were often based on an unknown level of self-expressed cardiac distress that they were pretending to experience.
  2. The Experimenter was a stern looking fellow who carried a clipboard, wore a lab coat, and would urge the Teacher to continue regardless of the make believe pleas of the Learner.

The “Teachers” were told by the experimenter that they would be participating in an experiment to test the effects of punishment on learning. However, as has already been stated, this was not the goal of the experiment.

The “Teacher” was given a list of word pairs which was used to teach the Learner. The Learner was actually a confederate, or a plant, in the experiment. The Teacher would then read the first word of each pair and read four possible answers. The Learner would deliberately press the wrong button to indicate his response. Since the answer was incorrect, the Learner would receive an electric shock, with the voltage progressively increasing with each wrong answer. Therefore, the
subjects believed that for each wrong answer, the Learner was receiving an ever increasing level of actual shocks which would eventually result in death.

In reality, there were no shocks. After the confederate (i.e., Learner) was separated from the subject, the confederate set up a tape recorder integrated with the electro-shock generator, which played pre-recorded sounds of pain and distress for each successive level of shock. After a number of voltage level increases, the Learner would bang on the wall which divided him from the subject (teacher). After several instances of banging on the wall and complaining about his heart condition, the learner provided no further responses to questions and no further complaints. The fate of the Learner was left to the imagination of the teacher. The silence was met with the command to continue with the experiment. Although the Learner was not being harmed, the Teacher believed that they were administering progressively dangerous shocks. From the instrumentation panel, the Teacher could clearly see that their shocks were approaching the level of lethality. Was the Teacher being forced to capitulate and continue with the experiment? Quite the contrary was true, the prompts to continue administering shock were encouraged by minimal prompts and absolutely no threats were offered by the Experimenter.

If at any time the subject hesitated or expressed a desire to discontinue the experiment, the subject was given a planned and verbatim succession of verbal prompts by the experimenter:

  1. “Please continue.”
  2. “The experiment requires that you continue.”
  3. “It is absolutely essential that you continue. ”
  4. “You have no other choice, you must go on.”

If the Teacher still wished to stop after having listened to four successive verbal prompts, the experiment was discontinued. Otherwise, the experiment was terminated after the subject had administered the lethal 450-volt shock three times in succession.

Milgram expected that less than one percent would actually administer a fatal electric shock. The actual results were so stunning that he decided to film the results on the final day, fearing that nobody would believe his results. And what were the results? Despite expressing some measure of discomfort and the minimal use pressure, in Milgram’s first set of experiments, 65% (26 out of 40) of the subjects administered the experiment’s final and hypothetically fatal 450-volt shock. Amazingly, no participant steadfastly refused to give further shocks before the 300-volt level!

Milgram’s results were confirmed when Dr. Thomas Blass performed a meta-analysis on the results of repeated performances of the experiment. Blass found that the percentage of participants who were willing to administer fatal voltages remains remarkably constant, between 61% and 66%.

The results of Milgram’s and Blass’ work are stunning in their final conclusion which demonstrated that almost two-thirds of all Americans will mindlessly follow the commands of a “perceived” authority figure even when the authority figure has no real power over the people. Can you imagine how the 65% rate will dramatically climb when they authority figure had “real” power over the people being ordered to fire upon American citizens?

The Zimbardo Prison Study

In 1971, psychologist Philip Zimbardo and his colleagues set out to create an experiment that looked at the impact of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. Zimbardo, a former classmate of Stanley Milgram was interested in expanding upon Milgram’s research. He wanted to further investigate the impact of situational variables on human behavior.

The research question the researchers asked was how would the participants react when placed in a simulated prison environment? Zimbardo had previously speculated that, “Suppose you had only kids who were normally healthy, psychologically and physically, and they knew they would be going into a prison-like environment and that some of their civil rights would be sacrificed. Would those good people, put in that bad, evil place, or, would their goodness triumph?” The results of the experiment haunt many of us in the psychology field, today, as we ponder how far would Americans go in the enforcement of a brutal and vicious tyranny?

Zimbardo set up a mock prison in the basement of Stanford University’s psychology building, and then selected 24 undergraduate students to play the roles of both prisoners and guards.  The assignment of roles was accomplished through random selection. The participants were selected because they had no criminal background, lacked psychological issues and had no major medical conditions. Therefore, the participants in the study were far more psychologically and physically healthy than any group of modern day military force, police force or FEMA camp guards. The volunteers agreed to participate for a one- to two-week period.

Prisoners were to remain in the mock prison 24-hours a day for the duration of the study. Guards, on the other hand, were assigned to work in three-man teams for eight-hour shifts. After each shift, guards were allowed to return to their homes until their next shift. Researchers were able to observe the behavior of the prisoners and guards through the use of hidden cameras.

The experiment was originally scheduled to last two weeks, but it had to be stopped after just six days due to what was happening to the student participants. The guards became exceptionally abusive and the prisoners began to show signs of extreme stress, anxiety and nervous breakdown.

The prisoners and guards were allowed to behave in any manner they chose. However, the interactions were generally hostile or even dehumanizing. The guards began behaving in an aggressive and abusive manner toward the mock prisoners. Subsequently, nearly all of the prisoners became passive and depressed. Five of the prisoners began to experience such severe and acute anxiety, that they had to be released from the study early.

Zimbardo later wrote in his book The Lucifer Effect that “Only a few people were able to resist the situational temptations to yield to power and dominance while maintaining some semblance of morality and decency; obviously I was not among that noble class” . Even Zimbardo lost his objectivity and the experiment was only halted when his girl friend at the time, Christina Maslach, a graduate psychology student, voiced objections and threatened to break off her relationship with Zimbardo if the experiment continued.

The Stanford Prison Experiment demonstrates the powerful role that the situation can play in human behavior. Because the guards were placed in a position of power, they began to behave in ways they would not normally act in their everyday lives or in other situations. By putting a prison guard uniform on the participants, issuing sun glasses and a baton made the participant guards act in accordance with their perceived role. This has dire consequences for the ability of uniformed personnel to resist orders from their commanding officers to fire upon American citizens. People will act according to the role that they have been assigned to play. Finally, based upon the Zimbardo Prison Experiment, what kind of treatment could you expect at a FEMA camp?

Can Evil Be Defeated?

April 3rd, 2015 by

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2015/04/03/can-evil-defeated/

By Paul Craig Roberts

John W. Whitehead is a constitutional attorney. As head of the Rutherford Institute he is actively involved in defending our civil liberties. Being actively involved in legal cases, he experiences first hand the transformation of law from a shield of the American people into a weapon in the hands of the government.

American civil liberty was seriously eroded prior to 9/11 and the rise of the police/warfare state, a story I tell in How America Was Lost. Lawrence Stratton and I documented the loss of law as a shield of the American people in our book, The Tyranny of Good Intentions (2000, 2008). Whitehead in his book, A Government of Wolves (2013) and in his just released Battlefield America (2015) shows how quickly and thoroughly the police state has taken root.

We live in an electronic concentration camp. We are addicted to images on screens that disinform and propagandize us to accept and even welcome the police state activities that have destroyed our autonomy, privacy, and independence.

I write many columns on this subject. The advantage of a book is that it all comes together under one cover, and that is what Whitehead has done in Battlefield America.

“The outlook for civil liberties grows bleaker by the day, from the government’s embrace of indefinite detention for US citizens and armed surveillance drones flying overhead to warrantless surveillance of phone, email and Internet communications, and prosecutions of government whistle-blowers. The homeland is ruled by a police-industrial complex, an extension of the American military empire. Everything that our founding fathers warned against is now the new norm. The government has trained its sights on the American people. We have become the enemy. All the while, the American people remain largely oblivious.”

Whitehead gives it to us straight. We are continually abused in the name of protecting us. Ordinary Americans are subject to far worst abuse from government than they ever could be from criminals and terrorists, both of which are bogymen used to justify the government’s terrorism of the citizenry.

Four-year old children are handcuffed by police. Ninety-five year old citizens with walkers are body-slammed with their neck broken by police. War veterans without legs and wheelchair bound are shot and murdered by police. The police always justify their abuse and criminal acts by claiming they felt threatened. What kind of heavily armed police, usually together in gangs, is threatened by a four-year old, a 95-year old, a double amputee? The fact that police get away with this brutality shows their total lack of humanity and the total transformation of the purpose of police. Today a paranoid police protect not the public but the police state and themselves from an imaginary threatening public. We pay them to abuse and murder us.

On September 6, 7, and 8, 2014, the Washington Post reported that state and local police had become bandits, as in Mexico, who stop drivers in order to rob them. In “Stop and Seize,” the Washington Post reported that “aggressive police take hundreds of millions of dollars from motorists not charged with crimes.”

There are now training courses in which police are trained in the art of highway robbery. September 11, 2001, was used to create an industry that trains police in the aggressive techniques of highway interdiction. It is now routine for a traffic stop, whether justified or not, to result in the confiscation of your cash, other possessions, and your car itself. You can be robbed by police on the basis of their assumptions without being ticketed or charged with a crime.

Whitehead reports that in fiscal year 2012 the federal government alone seized $4.2 billion in assets despite the fact that in 80 percent of the cases no charge was issued.

Did you know that the school security industry is a $4.9 billion annual business that instills in youth acceptance of tyranny and punishments for infractions that are simply the normal behavior of youth?

Did you know that in 2006 a Halliburton subsidiary, Dick Cheney’s firm, was awarded a $385 million federal contract to build concentration camps in the US?

Did you know that Republicans have privatized the prison system and turned it into a $70 billion per year industry that demands ever more incarceration of citizens in order to drive profits. Consequently, 2.7 million American children now have at least one parent in prison, often on charges that would not constitute crimes in a civilized country.

US prison labor is now the cheapest form of labor available with prisoners paid between 93 cents and $4.73 per day. Prisoners make office furniture, work in call centers, fabricate body armor, take hotel reservations, work in slaughterhouses, manufacture textiles, shoes, and clothing, process agricultural products like milk and beef, package Starbucks coffee, shrink wrap software for Microsoft, sew lingerie for Victoria’s Secret, produce the military’s helmets, shirts, pants, tents, bags, canteens, and a variety of other equipment, make circuit boards for IBM, Texas Instruments and Dell. Sew McDonald’s uniforms, and perform labor services for Boeing, Motorola, Compaq, Revlon and Kmart.

Even the “mainstream” presstitute media has reported the US military drills in South Florida where military teams working with local police practiced rounding up American citizens for detention. The media has also reported the upcoming military occupations in Texas and Utah. There are protests but not on the level that a people conscious of the threat to their liberty would mount.

It seems clear that these are federal troops practicing control of the population which is being stripped of the constitutional right to hold government accountable. The pointless lockdown of Boston and its suburbs and the gratuitous house to house searches, a martial law exercise clearly prepared prior to the Boston Marathon Bombing, used fear created by the bombing, possibly a false flag operation, to teach the population compliance with, and acceptance of, martial law. The insouciant American population went along with it. If someone points out how they were manipulated, the fools scream “conspiracy theorist.”

The official explanation of the military exercises practicing population control in South Florida, Texas and Utah is that the military is practicing for overseas actions. Why then are local police involved? More likely we are witnessing drills described in the US Army’s 2010 publication, “Internment and Resettlement Operations.”

It is now routine for police to amuse themselves by carrying out strip searches and vaginal searches of women. Police go out of their way to provoke resistance so that they can beat, taser, and murder. If they can’t provoke it, they beat, taser, and murder anyway and claim their victim resisted arrest or threatened them. Have you noticed how the police find everyone threatening?

Whitehead shows that the educational system, entertainment, and television serve to indoctrinate and teach compliance. Television can do more than form public opinion. It is used to alter the worldview of the population. Our cars, household appliances, and smart homes are becoming devices designed to spy on us and report noncompliance. A society is being created in which there can be no autonomy and no freedom.</span>

The technology that permits the electronic concentration camp is produced by thoughtless people who have no concern for liberty. How, Whitehead asks, do we maintain our humanity in the face of technologies designed to dehumanize us?

America now has preemptive prosecution. Whitehead reports that 95 percent of those convicted of terrorism between 2001 and 2010 were prosecuted not for deeds, but for beliefs, ideology, or religious affiliations.

The two most engaging chapters in Battleground America are “The Matrix” and “The Posthuman Era,” together a mere 17 pages. The fusion of machines with humans to which trans-humanists are committed will destroy human sensibility, memory, and morality, and probably humans themselves.

Corporate America is in it for the money. Whitehead tells us: “With every smartphone we buy, every GPS device we install, and every Twitter, Facebook, and Google account we open, we’re helping Corporate America build a dossier for its government counterparts on who we know, what we think, how we spend our money, and how we spend our time.”

Whitehead quotes Bill Joy, a cofounder of Sun Microsystems: “I think it is no exaggeration to say we are on the cusp of the further perfection of evil.”

Jim Edwards says, “we humans are now data bits.”

In the penultimate chapter, Whitehead tells us what we can do, a question that I am forever asked by readers. Whitehead says that armed revolt is not an option. He believes that the tens of millions, perhaps 100 million, Americans who have pistols, rifles, and shotguns are not only unorganized, but outgunned. The 21st century has been used to militarize state and local police forces and to brutalize their attitude toward the American public. Even police in small towns now have helicopters, armored personnel carriers, tanks, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades, drones, night vision, heat sensors, sensors that can see through the walls of houses and into cars.

If this is not enough, in comes the National Guard or federal troops, Army Rangers, Navy Seals. Or simply the release of germs. Washington can deal with its citizens the same way it dealt with the indigenous peoples we call Indians. Washington has retained in its hands live smallpox, a deadly killer, and there now have been several generations of Americans who have not had smallpox vaccination, because the disease was eliminated by vaccination. All the government has to do is to release smallpox on resistant populations, and, of course, the government has numerous other such means.

How did it come to this?

In my opinion, as I so often write, Americans are distracted by sex, entertainment, the difficulty of providing for themselves and for families. They are locked into the disinformation that sustains the American Matrix, blinded by their patriotism and the 4th of July speeches and by their indoctrination that Americans are “exceptional and indispensable.” And, of course, by their ignorance and arrogance. Americans simply have no clue.

The purpose of the evil that masquerades as a government in Washington is to prevent those few Americans who do have a clue from informing the rest of the population. Whistleblowers are arrested and falsely prosecuted and imprisoned. Journalists have been intimidated into silence.

Now, to Whitehead’s answer to what can we do. He says that we can mount “militant nonviolent resistance.” This worked for Christians in the decomposing Roman Empire.

It worked for Mahatma Gandhi in India against the British colonialists. It was working for Martin Luther King in America before he was assassinated, most likely by the FBI.

Whitehead says that the mass of the citizenry cannot be assassinated. If citizens simply stop cooperating by listening to the lies on TV, by purchasing the devices used to control them, by amusing themselves in front of propaganda screens, by learning again how to think, how to be human, how to be moral, the American police state can be defeated.

It worked in the past, and possibly it can work again. If not, Washington will remain the home of Sauron, a threat to every American citizen and to the entire world.

WHY TED CRUZ MUST BE DECLARED ELIGIBLE

April 2nd, 2015 by

Once again a constitutionally ineligible individual has declared his candidacy for president of these united States of America.

Once again another battle rages that should have been addressed in 2008 when the criminal impostor in the White House, Barack Obama (Known aliases: Barry Soetoro, Barry Dunham, Barry Obama, Barack Dunham), who also lied on his Illinois Bar Application when he said he has never used another name was allegedly elected. The usurper was/is using Barack Obama then but his friends at Occidental College knew him only as Barry Soetoro. Barack Obama was simply made up by the pathological liar at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Instead of addressing Barry’s ineligibility back then, the criminal enterprise went all the way to submission of the electoral college vote to the Outlaw Congress on January 9, 2009. Every member of that body of politicians sat mute – Ron Paul – all of them – and allowed the electoral college vote to stand. When the usurper ran again in 2012 and allegedly won (which would not have been possible without all the vote fraud in both elections), once again all of them – both parties- allowed Barry Soetoro to steal the office of president.

On January 14, 2009, Chief Justice Roberts had cases on the docket where Barry Soetoro was the defendant or was the subject of the litigation. Roberts and the other eight justices had already held two ‘Distribution for Conferences’ on the Donofrio and Wrotnoski cases on Obama’s citizenship ineligibility; there were others also ignored by the ‘high’ court.

On the date above Roberts meets with the man at the heart of that case, Soetoro, in private. Two days later,Roberts sat down to discuss the case with the other justices after having a closed door meeting with the defendant! There was still the Lightfoot v Bowen case to be heard in conference, January 23, 2009. Again, Chief Justice Roberts was to sit in that private meeting to discuss whether the case should go to oral arguments. In my lifetime I have never seen such in your face shenanigans by a member of the U.S. ‘Supreme’ Court.

In April 2010, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas joked during a congressional house sub-committee hearing:

“Oh really?” asked Serrano. “So you haven’t answered the one about whether I can serve as president, but you answer this one?”

“We’re evading that one,” answered Thomas, referring to questions of presidential eligibility and prompting laughter in the chamber.”

Yeah, that’s real funny, Clarence. The U.S. Supreme Court is evading the eligibility issue. So, Clarence, why didn’t you just come out in 2008 with Leo’s case and the others and say: “Hey – we’re going to evade the eligibility issue so don’t waste your time and money.”?

The reason why Ted Cruz must be declared eligible is because if he isn’t eligible then neither is the criminal impostor in the White House.

Barry Soetoro’s father was a foreign national on U.S. soil. He had not applied for citizenship and in fact, there was question as to whether or not he should be allowed to stay in the U.S., as his personal behavior was in the slutty category. Soetoro’s mother was a natural born citizen. Soetoro was born with dual citizenship and no amount of political high jinx and lies can change that fact. He was and always will be constitutionally ineligible to be president of this country.

Ted Cruz’s mother is a natural born citizen. His father was a foreign national in the U.S. with Cuban citizenship; he finally became a U.S. citizen in 2005. Ted Cruz was born with dual citizenship: Cuban and American. No different than Soetoro.

But, Cruz has taken the position that ‘natural born’ means he can change his citizenship at age 44 (he will be 45 in December) and magically turn himself into a natural born citizen. Well, Ted, it doesn’t work that way. Natural born means when you’re born. This doesn’t seem to matter to Cruz or some of his ardent supporters. I tried to find the interview conducted at one of Cruz’s events a couple of years ago, but was unsuccessful. The reporter ask one of Cruz’s supporters about his eligibility. The woman replied, “We don’t care. We want him as president.” Does that make her any different than the ethically bankrupt who have supported the fraudulent stealing of the office of president by Soetoro? It does not. That Cruz supporter is just as willing to crap on the Constitution as Barry’s supporters.

Ted Cruz announced in 2013 he was giving up his Canadian citizenship; it was finalized in 2014. However, that does not make him a natural born citizen. And, like Barry/Obama, Cruz is using the same deceitful tactic by making fun of the citizenship issue: Ted Cruz Cracks to Press: ‘I Am Secretly a Citizen of Ethiopia’

Gov. Bobby Jindal is not a natural born citizen as proclaimed in this piece: “They arrived Feb 1, 1971, and a bit over four months later, on June 10, 1971, Piyush Jindal was born at Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, a natural-born U.S. citizen, who like every other child born in America, could, constitutionally, grow up to be president.”

Jindal’s mother was five months pregnant when they arrived on U.S. soil and obtained green cards. Neither of his parents were either natural born or U.S. citizens at the time of his birth. I believe Jindal became a U.S. citizen via the fraudulent ‘anchor baby’ bastardization of the Fourteenth Amendment. His parents were not illegals since they obtained green cards, but they were not U.S. citizens at the time of his birth.

The same situation exists for Marco Rubio who is rumored to announce throwing his hat into the ring on April 13th. Rubio also doesn’t give a damn about the constitution. He has simply brushed off the legal fact that he is constitutionally ineligible. Rubio was born in May 1971 in Miami, Florida. His parents did not become U.S. citizens until November 1975 – four yearsafter his birth. Rubio’s parents were naturalized in 1975, so neither of his parents were U.S. citizens at the time of his birth. I believe Rubio, like Jindal, became a U.S. citizen via the fraudulent ‘anchor baby’ myth.

The stealing of the presidency beginning in 2008 was breathtaking in scope. I doubt the majority of adult aged Americans in this country have any idea of just what went on to get Barry and McCain declared constitutionally eligible. This piece is a must read because it factually lays out how an ineligible candidate was able to usurp the office of president. This piece is long, but read it over lunch, coffee in the morning or on the weekend: A Congressional Natural Born Citizen Parts I, II & III: Who Knew What & For How Long?

Now, all of the opinions that Cruz is a natural born citizen isbased on his mother being a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth:

There are dozens more which all chirp the same story line: one parent a U.S. citizen. However, that is not the definition of a natural born citizen. In some of the pieces above you’ll see reliance on the Fourteenth Amendment and the 1790 Naturalization Act which are covered in the next set of links below. We know the nearly 100 eligibility cases filed to stop Barry/Obama from stealing the White House were dismissed and never heard on the merits of the argument: who is a natural born citizen? The Outlaw Congress, every damn one of them unleashed the horror of Barack Obama on this country because of their cowardice or in the case of the ethically bankrupt Democratic/Commnist Party minions – they knew they could use the race card to get that waste of oxygen in the White House on the ballot.

For those unfamiliar with Leo Donofrio, he lives in New Jersey, he’s a lawyer and filed the first eligibility case against Barry and McCain in 2008. His case was not thrown out on the judicial hallucination called standing, but was killed by the U.S. Supreme Court and their duplicity. This piece deals with Juan McCain: John McCain: Citizen of Panama At Birth (Sept 2009)

Historical and legal analysis: Natural Born at Birth (Dec 2008) – This is a lengthy piece by Leo, but the research is impeccable and the only way we are going to stop ineligible candidates is with hard facts.

The articles below are not filled with speculation or the “my candidate” syndrome meaning I don’t care what the U.S. Constitution says. They all deal with historical facts. They are by no means the only ones, but I feel clearly cover in-depth why Cruz, Rubio and Jindal are not constitutionally eligible. Since this is a problem not likely to go away (Cruz is running despite knowing he will be in the same fight as Barry Soetoro over his eligibility and is counting on media like FOX to give him cover) it is imperative Americans and that means big shot anchors like Hannity, O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly and the rest of them that crushed Obama’s ineligibility learn the real definition of natural born citizen. Ted Cruz’s children can run for president because Cruz is a U.S. citizen. I do not believe Rubio or Jindal’s children can since both of them were born to parents holding only green cards and no flavor of citizenship. I could be wrong; I’m sure my email box will fill up.

I know everyone has time issues, but unless Cruz and Rubio are stopped and if one of them should get elected, we might as well just burn the U.S. Constitution. The reason the framers grand fathered in the natural born citizen clause was to ensure a president’s first loyalty would be to our constitutional republic. One can see just where Barry/Obama stands on that issue. No president in the history of this country has hated America more than the current occupant of the White House and done so much to destroy her. I have no doubt whatsoever that Cruz and Rubio do love America, but if they get away with becoming president it will mean anyone can hold that office just like the unvetted criminal in the White House. Do we want another Barry/Obama down the road?

What can be done?

We need to focus on the states right now getting them to stand firm against the Outlaw Congress and the usurper in the White House. When the time comes – if and it’s a big if – any of those three were to get the GOP nomination, I hope lawsuits are brought in as many states as possible to keep them off the ballot. As we know from the nearly 100 lawsuits to keep the criminal impostor in the WH off the ballot, suing the Secretary of State is a waste of time and money because all the judges involved were and are cowards. Almost all of the cases were filed after the habitual liar in the White House took office. The judges weren’t going to touch throwing the impostor president out of office.

No, the target would be the Republican National Committee for putting forth a candidate on state ballots who is constitutionally ineligible. It’s fraud – just like the Democratic/Communist Party USA did in 2008. Maybe even a RICO lawsuit. In the meantime, Cruz and his mouth pieces are trying to deflect away from the issue and I suspect Rubio will do the same. You might send each of them a short letter: You’re not constitutionally eligible; both parents must be U.S. citizens at the time of the child’s birth and we will file lawsuits to keep you off the ballot. Just maybe they will drop out of the race. Can’t raise enough money, don’t want to lose their powerful seats in the Senate, some excuse to evade the real issue.

You can take money to the bank the controlled media and that includes cable networks like FOX will continue to insist both are eligible – although there have been a few useful fools out there who likely will be silenced once they’re told to back off Cruz’s eligibility:

Cruz ‘as eligible as Obama is’ – House member deflects MSNBC host’s ‘birther’ assault: “MSNBC host Chris Matthews didn’t have the slightest issue with Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility. But he is grilling Republican supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential ambitions with reckless “birther” abandon.” Act surprised: the Republican house member being interviewed did the usual political tap dance with a stupid smirk on his face – but read his words. They know. They all know. “I’m telling you that President Obama is the president,” Farenthold said. “If he’s eligible to be president, Ted Cruz is.” “Was he legitimately elected president?” Matthews responded. “I wasn’t in Congress to make that determination,” Farenthold said. “That was determined before I got here.”

I must mention Donald Trump here because he’s stuck his foot in his mouth, again. He’s on the eligibility issue going after Cruz being born in Canada instead of the meat of the issue: both parents being U.S. citizens at the time of the child’s birth. I wish he’d shut his trap because all he’s doing is distracting people instead of educating them on what natural born really means.

And so the big lie, one of the biggest frauds ever perpetrated against the people of this country stays in place because (1) Republicans want the White House in 2016 and (2) as I said, to declare Cruz ineligible would cause a massive constitutional crisis: a usurper is sitting in the Oval Office and any laws, EO, treaties or other legal documents he signed are null and void – and they are – every last one of them.

RON EWART, AN HONORABLE, COMMON SENSE, CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES”

April 1st, 2015 by

http://www.narlo.org/president.html

4-1-2015 10-46-45 AM

It is said that anyone can run for president in America ….. and win. Over the ten years we have been writing articles on freedom and property rights, we have had several readers suggest we should run for president and others who said they would vote for us, if we did run, even if the idea is nothing more than a fantasy. We have resisted the idea for many reasons, the first being, only a fool would subject him or herself and their family to the kind of media scrutiny and feeding frenzy that a presidential candidate must endure, especially a conservative candidate.

However, with the plethora of candidates now allegedly running for the conservative ticket and many of those candidates just a replay of the same old tired political games, we have decided to explore the possibility of being a serious candidate for President, as improbable as that might seem.

There must be a thousand reasons why we shouldn’t run, but if we were to run we would be guided by the following platform. 

THE PLATFORM

Remember, a political platform is nothing more than a guide and a window into how a person or a party will govern. It is not sacrosanct and it is not set in stone. It may be reduced or expanded upon, depending on current realities. We’ll take the issues one by one that a president would face while in office, but not in any particular order, nor is it all conclusive. Common sense will be our guide in almost everything, but still recognizing that common sense is not necessarily the solution to some complex problems.

THE ECONOMY: 1) First rule, you cannot spend more than you take in or you go broke. Sadly, America is broke. We would use our bully pulpit to lobby for a balanced budget, except in time of war.

2) Second rule, excessive regulation inhibits the economy, job growth and wealth creation. We would work with Congress to unwind the millions of regulations that stifle our economy.

THE NATIONAL DEBT AND DEFICITS: While you are sitting there at your dining room table and working on your income and expenses, you instinctively know that too much debt will eventually force you into bankruptcy. The National debt at $18 Trillion and rising is an invitation to what every family knows will happen ….. bankruptcy. But national bankruptcy is far worse than personal bankruptcy. It can lead to a complete change in our political and judicial system. It can lead to a dictatorship as the government moves to bring stability to an unstable country by the use of force under martial law. Annual deficits of $500 Billion to over $1 Trillion dollars will only add to the national debt where there is virtually no way to pay the debt back to the borrowers, even if the government took every earned dollar away from every citizen. If the current very low interest rate rises, and it will, we will be paying more in interest on the national debt than the entire defense budget. Such an inevitable event will make national bankruptcy occur sooner, rather than later. We either get the national debt and the annual deficit under control, or we will face the dire, unintended consequences of national bankruptcy. Our administration would make getting the debt and deficit under control through a long-range balanced budget and the significant rolling back of entitlement spending.

TAXES: Obviously, a government can’t run without money. But when government is so inefficient and negligent that it wastes the money you pay them to the tune of 20% of the entire money they spend, it is high time to rein them in. In 50 years, since President Johnson’s Great Society, your government has spent $22 Trillion, averaging $440 Billion each year. Has poverty decreased? No! It has increased and made generation after generation dependent on government. Here is the reality on taxes:

“YOUR MONEY IS GOVERNMENT’S MAJOR POWER OVER YOU: The first power that government has over you is YOUR perception that YOUR money is their money. The second power that government has over you is by using the money they take from you by force of law, against you. The third power that government has over you is that you will religiously obey all of their laws.” (Will you?)

“Only when the people realize that their tax money is being used to environmentally enslave them; only when the people realize that their tax money is being used to “feed” a growing population of other people dipping their bills in the government “pig trough” and those “takers” voting for those very same politicians that take our tax money by force to keep the “trough” full; only when the people realize that their tax money is being spent to brainwash and indoctrinate their school and college-age children in the ways of socialism, multi-culturalism, radical environmentalism, collectivism and one-world-government; only when the people realize that their government is using their tax money to merge America into the one-world-order; only when the people realize that the only way to stop this attempted conquest of American freedom and sovereignty is to resist government, en masse, in every legal way possible. Only then will we reclaim our freedom.”

FOREIGN POLICY: 1) A bully not confronted, is a bully in power. A bully in power is a dictator. It is well known that a bully will only be defeated by a power greater than itself. No power is greater than American power.

2) All “bullies”, no matter where or who, will be confronted by this administration with the full diplomatic range and military power at America’s disposal, with a significant emphasis on military power. Our policy will be to bring the war to the enemy, no matter who it is, before the enemy has a chance to bring the war to America. Had we been president when Putin threatened invasion of Crimea, we would have sent a full aircraft carrier and destroyer battle group into the Black Sea to confront him.

3) We will reverse the reduction of funding for our military and work to increase it to the point America could wage war on two major fronts at one time. America’s military strength is what keeps little and large empires from ambitions of geographical. religious, or ideological expansion.

4) We must seriously consider withdrawing from the United Nations in that the UN works against American interests and sovereignty with a vengeance. If they could, they would repeal the U. S. Constitution.

IMMIGRATION: Illegal immigration is only a problem because the government allowed it to become a problem by not adequately closing the border and not fully enforcing current immigration law. Our administration would move forward with aggressively closing the border first and removing the magnets that attract illegal aliens. We would remove ALL government subsistence, education, or health benefits to illegal aliens, along with withdrawing all social security numbers and drivers licenses, prompting self-deportation. Visa applications from all foreign lands would trigger vigorous investigations and severe limits to visas would be put in place. We would work with border states to enlist their help in controlling the flow of immigrants, drugs and terrorists. No comprehensive immigration policy is necessary. We only need to enforce current law.

VETERANS: The entire Veterans Administration office should be over hauled and new policies put in place with the funds to match. These new policies would create an absolute priority for treating our veterans and their families with respect, honor, dignity and the admiration that they deserve. These people gave their lives, mind and limbs in the service of our country, defending our cherished freedoms. The current VA programs are an egregious affront to these individuals and an abysmal travesty. My administration would make this an absolute priority.

EDUCATION: Public and higher education in America have become infected by a cesspool of over-educated, academic idiots that have trampled common sense into the dust by experimenting with our children’s lives and engaging in indoctrination instead of education. Our administration would move to dismantle the U. S. Department of Education and transfer all public education responsibilities to the states and local government where they belong. We would encourage the drafting of an outline of education standards by the states, based on American exceptionalism, to use by local school boards as a guideline only.

SECOND AMENDMENT: We view the 2nd Amendment as one of the most important amendments included in the Bill of Rights and are a staunch defender of it. The 2nd Amendment was put there by the Founders to make sure a tyrannical government could not conquer the people with force. It wasn’t designed to promote hunting, it was for self defense and making sure that government couldn’t find it so easy to subdue the general population without facing a well armed militia. The people will not go easily into the night when armed.

ABORTION: We do not like abortion. It is without a doubt the killing of a human life, no mater at which stage of pregnancy. However, it is the law of the land and my administration would work with Congress to assure that no public funds would be used for abortion. I would work to stop all government subsidies to Planned Parenthood.

RELIGION: We are not religious, leaning more towards the provable and the knowable from science, rather than having to engage in a leap of faith to believe. However, we recognize that religion plays a vital and pivotal roll in the morality and integrity of any nation and is therefore a fundamental part of the fabric of that nation. We fully respect the religious beliefs of all faiths.

HOMOSEXUALITY: Not being religious we do not object to homosexuality on those grounds. Nevertheless, homosexuality, from our perspective, is an aberration of nature and although homosexuals should be afforded all the rights inuring to heterosexuals, we do not believe that those rights should extend to marriage.

ENTITLEMENTS: Run away entitlements are breaking this country. We would move to phase out most entitlements in 15 to 20 years in that the funding mechanism for every entitlement program is inherently flawed and totally unsustainable. Subsidies to the undeserving seriously weaken a country. Left on the current path, America will go bankrupt, sooner rather than later. It is high time that Americans quit relying on government and find ways in the private sector to subsist and care for them while sick and disabled, or in their later years. Obama Care is just one more entitlement leading America to national bankruptcy and must be repealed and replaced with a market-based solution that recognizes the doctor-patient relationship. The reduction of entitlements will free up funds for other vitally needed functions of government.

HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGES: Why is the highway trust fund running out of money next year? Why are our bridges and highways in such a sad state of repairs? Why isn’t there enough money for maintaining a strong military? Why is our economy in such dire straits? The major reason is that Progressives have been buying votes with money from the public treasury for the last 100 years and the money that would be available to keep our vital highway networks functioning and safe has gone to three types of exponentially expanding welfare. Without substantially reducing the funds to entitlements there will be less and less money available for roads and bridges, a vibrant economy and a strong military. The following graph illustrates the explosive growth of entitlement spending as it relates to America’s Gross Domestic Product. This isn’t bad fiscal policy. This is INSANE! Even an idiot can see that it is unsustainable.

4-1-2015 10-49-21 AM

THE BUREAUCRACY: The federal, state and local bureaucracies have become powers unto themselves, without any legislative oversight. Many federal bureaucracies have bloated budgets and tens of thousands of employees that “make” work. Their “make” work is an integral part of and adds to the too many regulations that plague people and businesses and make us all less free. I would present proposals to Congress to either rein in many of these bureaucracies, or dismantle them altogether.

ENVIRONMENT: We could write volumes on the environment and have. The environmental movement started out with good intentions to clean up air and water pollution in America. Then it got hijacked by radical national and international environmentalists, aided and abetted by the United Nations and the federal government. Environmental policy not only limits our rights, but adds significant costs to everything we buy. Current environmental policy is all about control of the masses, where in the masses are guilty of gross violations of the environment and must be regulated and restricted from many different activities. This is all part of the ever-shrinking bubble we mentioned earlier, in which government allows you to reside. My administration would take on the environmental lobby and put the brakes on a wide range of radical environmental policy promoted by national environmental groups and those affiliated with the United Nations. The United Nations Agenda 21 policy would be one of our first targets.

Any government program, including environmentally driven programs, that requires scientific evidence before implementation, must have at least a two-thirds majority of all private (not government) U. S. scientists in that specific discipline agreeing to the condition, prior to implementation of that program or the spending of government funds. New information should be analyzed frequently to see if changes to the program should be made.

Climate Change, alias man-caused global warming, is a planet-wide con and a fraud by world elites to implement a one-world-order by making the masses feel guilty about damaging the environment and conditioning them to draconian environmental regulations where property rights exist no longer and the bubble of individual freedom gets smaller and smaller. These regulations fall much harder on rural America but urban Americans feel the pinch in higher taxes and increased limits on their behavior.

RACE RELATIONS: Race relations and the accusations of racism will not go away until there is a major cultural shift in the black community. Police go where the crime is to control it. A large percentage of crime is occurring in the black inner city precincts, thus the incidence of police – black encounters will occur more frequently. This leads to allegations of systemic police racism. Until the fractured black families start putting more emphasis on two-parent homes and a good education for their children and quit playing the “victim” roll, these charges of police and white racism will continue. The government welfare system has made the situation even worse by demeaning the need for fathers in black families. Nevertheless, a president can use his bully pulpit to reverse the welfare trends and quit exacerbating the situation by parroting the racial stereotypes as has the current president and U. S. Attorney General have done. Cooler heads need to prevail if racial bias is ever to subside.

If we have missed anything, it is not by intent.

A Middle East Holocaust

March 31st, 2015 by

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2015/03/30/middle-east-holocaust-paul-craig-roberts/

 

Paul Craig Roberts

The current situation in my experience is the most dangerous time of all for humanity.

Nuclear weapons are no longer restrained by the Cold War MAD doctrine. Washington has released them into pre-emptive first strike form.

The targets of these pre-emptive strikes–Russia and China–know it, because Washington proudly proclaims its immorality in public documents describing its war doctrine.

The result is to maximize the chance of nuclear war. If you were Russia and China, and you knew that Washington had a war doctrine that permits a surprise nuclear attack, would you sit there waiting while Washington cranks up its anti-Russian and anti-Chinese propaganda machine, demonizing both countries as a threat to “freedom and democracy”?

The fools in Washington are playing with nuclear fire. Noam Chomsky points out that in a less dangerous time than currently exists, we came very close to nuclear war.https://philosophynow.org/issues/107/Noam_Chomsky_on_Institutional_Stupidity

Harold Pinter, one of the last Western intellects, understood the danger in Western arrogance. He denounced the West’s crimes and called for the crimes to be subject to established law before it is too late for humanity.

“We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’. How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought. Therefore it is just that Bush and Blair be arraigned before the International Criminal Court of Justice.” Harold Pinter, 2005 Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech.

“An Iraqi Holocaust” by Gideon Polya http://www.countercurrents.org/polya230315.htm and “Genocide In Iraq” http://www.countercurrents.org/polya150315.htm provide abundant evidence for convicting Bush and Blair.

Dr. Gideon Polya is a professor of science in one of Australia’s leading universities. He has a moral conscience, something increasingly rare in the Western world.

His articles are based largely on the just published by Clarity Press two volume heavily documented Genocide in Iraq by Abdul-Haq Al-Ani and Tarik Al-Ani. Abdul-Haq Al-Ani is a British-educated lawyer with a Ph.D. in International Law and a Ph.D. in electronics engineering. Tarik Al-Ani, is an architect, translator, and researcher.

Currently I am reading the two-volume work and intended to review it. But Professor Polya’s articles suffice as an introduction to Genocide in Iraq. Washington has committed a terrible crime in our name. Washington not only murdered Iraq, Washington has murdered the Middle East. Washington and its despicable vassals–”the Coalition of the Willing”–are responsible for a Middle East Holocaust.

For people in the Anglo-American world who have a moral conscience, the facts are soul-wrenching. The populations of the countries whose governments comprised “the Coalition of the Willing” are contaminated with war crimes committed by their governments in the Iraq Genocide. A progressive modern state was obliterated, and 2.7 million Iraqi people were murdered.

The crime was covered up with propaganda that demonized Saddam Hussein and created fear of nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.

The Iraqi genocide was based on a lie, and both Bush and Blair knew it. The two satanic leaders simply decided to destroy a people who they first demonized and marginalized.

Cheney and the neocons continue to justify the genocide and the illegal torture regime that they created in order to produce fake “terrorists” as a justification for their war crimes. The Western media, especially the New York Times, is also complicit in the Iraqi Genocide as are the insouciant Western peoples themselves who stood by cheering while millions of people were destroyed on the basis of a blatant and transparent lie.

What does the West represent? Greed? Lies? War? Torture? War Crimes? Selfishness, Intolerance? Destruction of life on earth?

The “Christian” West is a master at propaganda and self-deception. Look at the evangelical churches. They support a criminal, inhumane regime while professing to be followers of Christ.

Look at American “conservatives.” They support the militarized police state. They support the routine police murders of dark-skinned American citizens. They support every war Washington dreams up and even more. Indeed, there are not enough wars for the satisfaction of Congressional Republicans who now want war with Russia and with Iran.

Look at the Republicans in Congress and in state governments. They hate the environment. They love polluters. They worship Israel and Israel’s destruction of the Palestinians and the ongoing theft of the Palestinians’ country, a 60-year old activity. Just look at the map of shrinking Palestine. More is stolen each day.

Washington has supported this theft of an entire country. Yet, Washington is able to masquerade as a great defender of human rights. Whose rights? Washington’s and Israel’s. No one else’s rights count.

How does the world survive the American-Israeli aggression? Probably it will not. The evil is now directed at Iran, Russia, and China. These countries cannot be bombed year after year after year with no consequences to the bombers.

Iran is limited in its destructive ability. But Iran could destroy Saudi Arabia and Israel. Russia and China can destroy the US and all of Washington’s vassal states. The intensity of Washington’s propaganda war is driving the world to destruction.

How can it be stopped when Putin himself says over and over that Washington continually ignores every thing that the Russian government says. Putin is the peacemaker. Every peace proposal he brings is ignored by Washington whose response is to beat the drums of war louder.

Unless European governments recognize the danger in Washington’s aggression and dissolve NATO, planet earth hasn’t long to live.

The American public needs to understand the consequences of Washington’s illegality and criminality. On the one hand it means that those subject to Washington’s aggression have to endure war crimes, but on the other hand it means a growing hatred for America. As Washington’s easy targets are used up, Washington engages countries that can reply to force with force.

Unless the neoconservatives are ejected from the Obama regime and banned from inclusion in any future American government, mushroom clouds will go up over Washington, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Houston, St. Louis, Cleveland, Chicago. The American mid-west, which hosts the ICBM silos, will become uninhabitable except by cockroaches.

Americans, and the populations of the American puppet states, desperately need to understand that Washington is incapable of speaking the truth about anything. Washington is an evil force. Washington is Sauron. Washington is Satan.

Look at Iraq. Look at Afghanistan. Look at Libya. Look at Syria. Look at Somalia. Look at Ukraine. Nothing but destruction comes from Washington. Will life on earth be Washington’s next victim?

Congress Pushes Obuma backed National Biometric ID for Americans

March 29th, 2015 by

http://thejacksonpress.org/?p=31614

3-29-2015 11-50-50 AM

Reprinted with permission from The New American

After largely failing to prod state governments into developing a national identification system known as “REAL ID,” Republican lawmakers in Congress are once again pushing an Obama-backed scheme that would force every American to have a national ID card containing sensitive biometric data. The controversial plan, embedded in an immigration-enforcement bill, has been in the works for years, but has consistently been met with stiff opposition from liberty-minded grassroots organizations and activists. While the plan has failed in previous Congresses thanks to a groundswell of opposition, critics of the measure say that without prompt action, the unconstitutional scheme could soon become a reality.

The legislation, officially dubbed the “Legal Workforce Act” (H.R. 1147), is ostensibly aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from obtaining jobs in the United States. Among the most troubling elements highlighted by critics, though, is that the bill would purport to mandate a national ID card for every American as a condition of working. It would also force every employer in America to purchase and use so-called “E-Verify technology” to check with Washington, D.C., as to whether potential employees have government permission to work. Finally, it would create a massive federal database containing sensitive data on virtually every person in the country — a database that could easily be expanded to include even more information.

While establishment lawmakers on both sides of the aisle seem fond of the measure, critics are sounding the alarm about the bill and its implications for liberty. In an e-mail to supporters urging them to help crush the unconstitutional legislation, for example, former Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas), in his capacity as chairman of Campaign for Liberty, warned that the national ID scheme would be a nightmare. Among other concerns, the two-time GOP presidential contender noted that it would allow federal bureaucrats to include biometric information — potentially including fingerprints, retinal scans, and more — that could and likely would be eventually used as a tracking device. It would also make it illegal for anyone to work in the United States without obtaining the national ID.

“Every time any citizen applies for a job, the government would know — and you can bet its only a matter of time until ‘ID scans’ will be required to make even routine purchases, as well,” Dr. Paul warned, adding that “statists in both parties have been fighting to ram their radical national ID-database scheme into law” for years. “In fact, this scheme was a key portion of the infamous so-called ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’ bills both parties have tried to ram through.” Now, Paul said, the statists believe they have found a way to impose their national ID: Drop the amnesty provisions and focus on immigration “security.”

According to Dr. Paul, a constitutionalist who served in Congress for more than 20 years, the term “security” is being used as “nothing more than a buzzword meant to trick Americans from all over the country into thinking that Congress is finally going to seal our southern border.” In reality, though, it means something much different. “The ‘security’ members of both parties in the U.S. House want doesn’t target any U.S. border,” Paul added. “Instead, it’s meant to create an all-out police state within them.”

Paul also warned that the national database required for the ID regime could easily expand to include information on gun ownership, medical records, political affiliation, and “virtually anything else at the stroke of a President’s pen.” In fact, the stakes are so high, he said, that this type of battle is often decisive in “whether a country remains free or continues sliding toward tyranny.” Existing abuses such as lawless NSA spying, IRS harassment, and more offer further evidence that the feds cannot be trusted with such Orwellian tools to track, monitor, and ultimately control Americans.

Despite the dangers, the legislation has already been passed out of the House Judiciary Committee, getting a vote just three days after it was introduced — and the markup took place before the text of the bill was even available online. “The speed with which this bill was rushed through Committee means the House leadership is very serious about passing this bill into law as soon as possible,” warned Paul, urging Americans to fight back immediately to prevent the bill from passing. He also warned about potential “bipartisan compromises” that could be even worse than the original.

The legislation was introduced by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), who has a dismal 54 percent in the Freedom Index, a tool provided by this magazine that scores lawmakers’ votes based on adherence to the U.S. Constitution they all swore to uphold. The controversial bill already has dozens of co-sponsors in the House, too. It is being publicly touted by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who claimed it would bring the “nation’s employment eligibility system into the 21st century,” as well as chief sponsor Smith.

“The Legal Workforce Act turns off the jobs magnet that attracts so many illegal immigrants to the United States,” Rep. Smith said in a statement promoting the measure, ignoring the fact that amnesty and the porous borders have been crucial in encouraging illegal immigration. “The bill expands the E-Verify system and applies it to all U.S. employers. Equally important, the American people support E-Verify,” Smith argued, citing polls showing that Americans overwhelmingly support stronger laws to stop businesses from hiring illegal immigrants. “This bill is a common-sense approach that will reduce illegal immigration and save jobs for legal workers. It deserves the support of everyone who wants to put the interests of American workers first.”

The bill also has the support of several major lobbying powerhouses — including some, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, that are infamous for their support of granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. Other organizations backing the bill include immigration enforcement-focused Numbers USA, the National Restaurant Association, the National Association of Homebuilders, and several others. However, in the past, similar national-ID schemes have met with major opposition from groups including Downsize DC, the Rutherford Institute, the American Policy Center, the Taxpayers Protection Alliance, the Republican Liberty Caucus, the U.S. Bill of Rights Foundation, Conservative Republican Women, and many more.

In a letter to lawmakers about the same legislation in the 112th Congress (2011-2012), that broad coalition of organizations blasted the bill as an affront to freedom and the Constitution. Among other concerns, they said it “violates individual civil liberties such as the right to work and free speech; mandates a costly job-killing regulatory burden that cripples small business; requires employers to become enforcement agents of the federal government; and encourages identify theft of law-abiding citizens.” The bill should never have even left committee, according to opponents.

“It is anathema to limited government, the right to privacy, free enterprise and prosperity,” the coalition said in the letter to members of Congress. “It violates the philosophy of the Constitution and intent of the Framers by subordinating the liberty of citizens to the administrative convenience of government. And the Founding Fathers would have rebelled against such a staggering Federal intrusion into every workplace in the nation and our personal civil liberties.”

As The New American reported as far back as 2010, the same plot to impose a national ID on America has been pushed before by some of the leading Big Government-mongers in Congress. The “bipartisan” amnesty-national ID legislation pushed by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and backed by Obama in 2010 eventually failed due to a massive uprising against legalizing illegal immigrants. Back then, though, promoters of the biometric national ID scheme were boasting about their machinations.

“Our plan has four pillars: requiring biometric Social Security cards to ensure that illegal workers cannot get jobs; fulfilling and strengthening our commitments on border security and interior enforcement; creating a process for admitting temporary workers; and implementing a tough but fair path to legalization for those already here,” wrote Graham and Schumer in a joint op-ed promoting their legislation. “We would require all U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who want jobs to obtain a high-tech, fraud-proof Social Security card.” At the time, Obama called the proposal “a promising, bipartisan framework which can and should be the basis for moving forward.”

With the amnesty provision now out of the more recent bill — Obama is using executive decrees funded by the GOP Congress in a bid to provide amnesty anyway — analysts say the national ID plot stands a much greater chance of coming to fruition. In addition to being unconstitutional by virtue of the fact that the Constitution grants no power over identification systems to the federal government, history shows that national ID schemes are dangerous and very often abused by authorities. Considering the U.S. government’s track record, Americans can be sure that, if the plot becomes law, the ID regime will be eventually be abused as well.

If solving the illegal immigration crisis is truly the goal, there is a much simpler solution. Rather than foisting an unconstitutional national ID scheme on Americans and building a massive database, Congress could stop funding Obama’s amnesty decrees and ensure that the borders are secure. For that to happen, though, Americans who value liberty and the Constitution must get involved.

Dear Mr. Congresscritter:

 According to the lies my generation were told when growing up, the Constitution was composed to protect American’s from assholes like you. For whatever reason, we believed the lies with our whole being all of our life, and now we are supposed to accept all the bullshit you are forcing down our throat as though it never existed. Please take this to the bank, we are not going to live out our lives being told which hand to use, and which direction to wipe our ass. You will pay for your treason one way or another. You will have to live out your lives underground and surrounded by armed guards, and if you become over-confident and emerge from your hole some hot head will end your miserable existence with a Malakoff Cocktail, or a well aimed brick. I am not saying it will be me because I am too old and feeble, but I assure you when I read about it I will have an orgasm that beats anything ever experienced from copulation. If there is any chance that you have just a thimble full of intelligence left, may I suggest that you start enforcing the Constitution for your own protection. And, if it’s possible you have family that you love, please consider what some out of control nasty S.O.B. might do to them. Real American’s have shed their blood and loved one’s for their freedoms, so don’t make the mistake of thinking they will lay down and be exterminated with no resistance. They are not afraid of dying and will persevere with or without guns, knives or ball bats. Can you say the same for yourself? I doubt it! You were born cowards, and will die the same way. America will never die! Olddog said that, and if you don’t like it, go piss up a rope, or OBUMAS ass.

HOUSE BILL SEEKS TO ABOLISH PATRIOT ACT

March 27th, 2015 by

http://www.infowars.com/house-bill-seeks-to-abolish-patriot-act/

Would block NSA snooping, protect whistleblowers

Legislation introduced into the House of Representatives Tuesday is designed to abolish the draconian PATRIOT Act and restore protections under the Constitution that have been violated, according to its authors.

The bill, dubbed The Surveillance State Repeal Act, H.R. 1466 [PDF], would also prohibit US spooks from plating backdoors into technology, as well as provide extended protections for whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden.

“The Patriot Act contains many provisions that violate the Fourth Amendment and have led to a dramatic expansion of our domestic surveillance state,” said Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY), who co-authored the legislation with Representative Mark Pocan (D-WI).

“Our Founding Fathers fought and died to stop the kind of warrantless spying and searches that the Patriot Act and the FISA Amendments Act authorize. It is long past time to repeal the Patriot Act and reassert the constitutional rights of all Americans.” Massie noted.

In addition to repealing the PATRIOT ACT, passed three days after the 9/11 attacks, the legislation would also abolish the 2008 FISA Amendments Act, which the NSA has largely used to claim it’s mass spying program is legal.

H.R. 1466 states that any future snooping involving American citizens would be subject to strict oversight and require warrants in all cases, as well as probable cause.

“The warrantless collection of millions of personal communications from innocent Americans is a direct violation of our constitutional right to privacy,” said Congressman Pocan.

“Revelations about the NSA’s programs reveal the extraordinary extent to which the program has invaded Americans’ privacy. I reject the notion that we must sacrifice liberty for security- we can live in a secure nation which also upholds a strong commitment to civil liberties.” Pocan added.

The legislation would also prohibit the government from forcing tech companies to install backdoors in their products to enable NSA surveillance. Law enforcement lobbying groups have been pushing for this for sometime, while security experts and those within the tech sector say it would be disastrous.

The new legislation would also provide for an independent controller to receive complaints from whistleblowers, and to protect them by reporting any valid information to Congress on their behalf.

Unfortunately, the bill stands very little chance of passing, given that so many bought and paid for representatives in Congress largely support the unconstitutional PATRIOT act and do not wish to rock the surveillance state boat.

All those who support freedom from government snooping should be encouraged to express their support for this legislation. Representatives can be identified and contacted here.

Do Russia NATO Military Drills Signal Something Ominous?

While most individuals assume that both historical and future events arise as a result of a series of massive and seismic actions, the truth is often that a whimper precedes the bang. While many events are indeed sparked by a single definitive act, it is also true that, in the events leading up to the defining moment, rarely does the general public realize that they are walking along the path to such an event. Even rarer is the individual who realizes that this path was already carved out by high-level players in the halls of banks, corporations, governments, and secret societies long before the destination is ever reached. 

For instance, most scholars present the events leading up to World War I as an immediate reaction to the assassination of Franz Ferdinand by a shadowy semi-secret society that was not fundamentally connected to any other secret establishment. The truth, however, is that not only was the Black Hand a part of a Revolutionary Freemasonic structure and the war itself a carefully orchestrated plot that involved the personal attention and assembly of King Edward VII as well as British and French Freemasonic Lodges, but it was not solely a reaction to the assassination of Ferdinand. 

More importantly for the context of this article is the fact that, for thirty days after the assassination, life, for the most part, continued on without any apparent changes in the lives of the general public. Indeed, in the month after the assassination of Ferdinand, the majority of the world’s population hadreturned to what has been described as a “dreamlike trance” of ignorance even as the declarations of war were being prepared behind the scenes. 

The time of this “dreamlike trance” – July 1914 – may very well bear relevance to the time in which we find ourselves today. While we must do our best to avoid sensationalism, the question of US-Russia relations, US imperialism, and the geopolitical imperatives of the US, Russia, China, and NATO compounded by the overwhelming ignorance of the general public is one that should cause some concern as to whether or not we find ourselves in a similar situation today. 

 

For instance, over the last few months, Russian and NATO war games have become increasingly aggressive despite being largely ignored in the mainstream media except for the obvious propaganda opportunities. Any real and legitimate discussion about what these drills may actually mean has obviously been left out with the Western mainstream press using them to simply promote the infantile narrative that NATO’s drills are for readiness and protection of the free world against the aggressive Hitlerian Russians while the Russian drills are preparations to storm Eastern Europe and re-impose the Iron Curtain.

Virtually since the conflict began, US/NATO have provoked the situation even further (quite the feat after having engineered the Euromaidan color revolution to begin with) by arming and training Ukrainian fascists and by holding military “drills” across Eastern Europe and even Western Ukraine.

While the fact that the Euromaidan movement and the subsequent ouster of Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych was initiated by the United States and NATO is clear enough, which side of the geopolitical tug of war initiated the first round of military drills over Ukraine is not as easily determined. While Russia’s position is undoubtedly defensive in regards to Ukraine, both sides of the geopolitical conflict have been flexing their muscles since the crisis began in earnest.

Early on, of course, these drills appeared as mere “muscle flexing” between to world powers intent on showing off each other’s military strength as well as their commitment to their respective positions. Yet, as time moved on these military “drills” developed into something more physically imposing, suggesting that the drills were in fact a public but subtle warning that military force would be met with equal or greater military force.

Despite reports by the Western mainstream press suggesting a “Russian Troop Buildup Along the Border with Ukraine” which was, in actuality, nothing more thanphotographs of drills that had taken place in August of 2013 (months before the US-backed protests toppled Yanukovych), military drills appear to have been conducted in tandem with one another and by both sides of the conflict equally. 

For instance, in May, 2014, both the United States and Russia conducted large-scale nuclear war drills within a week of one another. Despite the apocalyptic nature of the drills, the maneuvers were largely seen as a show of strength and veiled threat between the two countries.

The next month, Vladmir Putin ordered snap military drills to take place across central Russia which were the largest since Russia annexed Crimea a few months earlier. In August, Russia took part in another drill near the Ukrainian border.

In September, 2014, the United States and NATO then went further to stage military drills inside Western Ukraine even as intense fighting was taking place in the countries’ eastern region. It was during this Rapid Trident exercise that MH17 crashed over Ukraine. Another NATO drill, BREEZE 2014, concluded on July 17th, the day that MH17 crashed and involved commercial traffic monitoring as well as “reaction to asymmetric threat warnings, anti-submarine warfare and artillery firing.” BREEZE 2014 also involved “commercial air traffic monitoring.”

The most assertive and concerning military drills from the Russian side (only to be eclipsed by the drills of the American side taking place at the same time) came after nine-day absence of Vladmir Putin and involved the infantry, Air Force, Spetsnaz troops, and other military branches all across the country. The drills were set to practice repelling a land-sea-air military invasion on its western, northern, southern, and eastern fronts. 

As RT reported at the time,

Motorized infantry, combat aviation and Spetznaz troops have been put on alert in all nine time zones of the Russian Federation, including the Volga region, Urals, Western Siberia, the Far East region and the Pacific, the North Caucasus and along the borders of NATO member states from the Arctic through to the Baltic and Black Sea.

RT reports the “drill” deployments as follows:

The operational zone of the Northern Fleet’s drills has been expanded to the Norwegian Sea, and the number of deployed naval task groups has been increased to five, the Defense Ministry reported. 

“The commanding staff of the Northern Fleet has decided to build up the contingent involved in training missions to defend Russia’s borders in the Arctic,” the ministry said in a statement. 

More than 20 ships of the Russia’s Baltic Fleet are out at sea conducting defense drills, the Russian Western Military District’s press service announced on Wednesday.

A tactical group of the Russian Black Sea fleet will hold military exercises on Thursday, targeting decoy enemy bombers and battleships.

Paratroopers from the Ivanovo Airborne Division have been relocated inside the Arctic Circle next to the Norwegian border on Ilyushin Il-76 airlifters to train countering subversive groups, maintain anti-aircraft defense, perform engineering and radiation reconnaissance and sharpen field camouflage skills.

The Defense Ministry reported on Wednesday that Russian marines from Temryuk in south Russia’s Krasnodar region have been put on full combat readiness and are training next to the Kerch Strait connecting the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. The units are conducting exercises in conditions similar to real military activities, using simulation tools to train counteracting subversive groups and repelling enemy amphibious assault landings.

Russia’s strategic command has put mechanized troops of the Eastern Military District, deployed on the island of Sakhalin in the Pacific, on the highest levels of combat alert. Up to 3,000 troops and nearly 1,000 military vehicles are training defense of the coast in close cooperation with the Air Force.

Over 30 army aviation crews are being relocated from airfields in the Leningrad and Smolensk regions to a military airfield in the Arctic. Mil Mi-24 and Mi-8 helicopters are set to cover over 1,500 kilometers with a stopover for refueling in the Karelia region.

About 80 military pilots of the Eastern Command are taking part in ‘Airdarts’ contest that includes performing air stunts, bomb-dropping and unguided missiles firing, using Su-25, Su-27SM, Su-24M2 assault and fighter jets.

Assault helicopter pilots are training live ammo shooting, ultra-low flying and evading air defenses.

Over 2,000 engineer troops and 350 special vehicles of the Central Military Command are training in demining all types of military explosives, using brand-new standoff IED detection vehicles.

The ongoing snap check of the military involves about 76,000 troops, over 10,000 units of military hardware and special equipment, 65 battleships,16 support vessels, 15 submarines, 200 warplanes and helicopters.

The drills being held in Russia are the largest yet and represent an escalation in the crisis despite a shaky ceasefire in Ukraine.

Still, the American side has responded concurrently with drills of its own, flooding a number of Baltic states with US/NATO military personnel and equipment. Operation Atlantic Resolve has resulted in thousands of US troops alone and hundreds of US tanks flooding several of these Baltic countries receiving a mixed welcome from the locals. This drill has resulted in what has been referred to as a “line of troops.” 

RT quotes Col. Michael Foster of the 173rd Airborne Brigade as stating that, “As you connect countries, there is almost a line of US troops.” 

The host nations include Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia as well as Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Western Ukraine. The Black Sea is also a site of US/NATO “drills.”

These troops are being deployed not only in countries that border Russia but in areas that themselves are physically close to the Russian borderline. 

Thus, with the Russian forces on high alert and with virtually the entire country being put in place under the pretense of “drilling” to repel any land, air, or sea based force that may try to invade Russia (as well as “subversive” groups) and the US military’s “line of troops” placed right at Russia’s doorstep, one would be justified in wondering whether or not Russia and the US/NATO are truly taking part in legitimate military drills – even for the show of strength and deterrence – or if they are actually putting their military personnel in place for a direct military conflict.

In other words, it is a legitimate question to wonder whether or not Russia and NATO are engaging in troop placement under the guise of drills for a real war. 

Indeed, one would be entirely justified in wondering whether we are seeing the chess pieces being set for a major military confrontation beginning in Eastern Europe but finding its way to North America and eventually enveloping the entire world.

Given the track record of both governments, it is entirely plausible to believe that, if both nations were indeed placing their military personnel in strategic positions, the cover of “drills” could and would be used so as not to forewarn the general public or cause panic in society and hamper the war effort. In addition, the cover of military drills and exercises is obviously a tactic available to governments whereby they are able to position military personnel in prime locations before any actual combat has taken place.[1] 

With all of this in mind, we must begin to ask ourselves, “Are the American people in a dreamlike trance?” 

“Are we in July, 1914?”

The Wolf Is Guarding the Hen House The Governments War on Cyberterrorism

March 17, 2015

The game is rigged, the network is bugged, the government talks double-speak, the courts are complicit and there’s nothing you can do about it.”—David Kravets, reporting for Wired

Nothing you write, say, text, tweet or share via phone or computer is private anymore. As constitutional law professor Garrett Epps points out, “Big Brother is watching…. Big Brother may be watching you right now, and you may never know. Since 9/11, our national life has changed forever. Surveillance is the new normal.”

This is the reality of the internet-dependent, plugged-in life of most Americans today.

A process which started shortly after 9/11 with programs such as Total Information Awareness (the predecessor to the government’s present surveillance programs) has grown into a full-fledged campaign of warrantless surveillance, electronic tracking and data mining, thanks to federal agents who have been given carte blanche access to the vast majority of electronic communications in America. Their methods completely undermine constitution safeguards, and yet no federal agency, president, court or legislature has stepped up to halt this assault on our rights.

For the most part, surveillance, data mining, etc., is a technological, jargon-laden swamp through which the average American would prefer not to wander. Consequently, most Americans remain relatively oblivious to the government’s ever-expanding surveillance powers, appear unconcerned about the fact that the government is spying on them, and seem untroubled that there is no way of opting out of this system. This state of delirium lasts only until those same individuals find themselves arrested or detained for something they did, said or bought that runs afoul of the government’s lowering threshold for what constitutes criminal activity.

All the while, Congress, the courts, and the president (starting with George W. Bush and expanding exponentially under Barack Obama) continue to erect an electronic concentration camp the likes of which have never been seen before.

A good case in point is the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), formerly known as CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act). Sold to the public as necessary for protecting us against cyber attacks or internet threats such as hacking, this Orwellian exercise in tyranny-masquerading-as-security actually makes it easier for the government to spy on Americans, while officially turning Big Business into a government snitch.

Be warned: this cybersecurity bill is little more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing or, as longtime critic Senator Ron Wyden labeled it, “a surveillance bill by another name.”

Lacking any significant privacy protections, CISA, which sacrifices privacy without improving security, will do for surveillance what the Patriot Act did for the government’s police powers: it will expand, authorize and normalize the government’s intrusions into the most intimate aspects of our lives to such an extent that there will be no turning back. In other words, it will ensure that the Fourth Amendment, which protects us against unfounded, warrantless government surveillance, does not apply to the Internet or digital/electronic communications of any kind.

In a nutshell, CISA would make it legal for the government to spy on the citizenry without their knowledge and without a warrant under the guise of fighting cyberterrorism. It would also protect private companies from being sued for sharing your information with the government, namely the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in order to prevent “terrorism” or an “imminent threat of death or serious bodily harm.”

Law enforcement agencies would also be given broad authority to sift through one’s data for any possible crimes. What this means is that you don’t even have to be suspected of a crime to be under surveillance. The bar is set so low as to allow government officials to embark on a fishing expedition into your personal affairs—emails, phone calls, text messages, purchases, banking transactions, etc.—based only on their need to find and fight “crime.”

Take this anything-goes attitude towards government surveillance, combine it with Big Business’ complicity over the government’s blatantly illegal acts, the ongoing trend towards over-criminalization, in which minor acts are treated as major crimes, and the rise of private prisons, which have created a profit motive for jailing Americans, and you have all the makings of a fascist police state.

So who can we count on to protect us from the threat of government surveillance?

It won’t be the courts. Not in an age of secret courts, secret court rulings, and an overall deference by the courts to anything the government claims is necessary to its fight against terrorism. Most recently, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a case challenging the government’s massive electronic wiretapping program. As Court reporter Lyle Denniston  notes:

Daoud v. United States was the first case, in the nearly four-decade history of electronic spying by the U.S. government to gather foreign intelligence, in which a federal judge had ordered the government to turn over secret papers about how it had obtained evidence through wiretaps of telephones and Internet links.  That order, however, was overturned by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, whose ruling was the one the Justices on Monday declined to review…. One of the unusual features of the government’s global electronic spying program is that the individuals whose conversations or e-mails have been monitored almost never hear about it, because the program is so shrouded in secrecy — except when the news media manages to find out some details.  But, if the government plans to use evidence it gathered under that program against a defendant in a criminal trial, it must notify the defendant that he or she has been monitored.

It won’t be Congress, either (CISA is their handiwork, remember), which has failed to do anything to protect the citizenry from an overbearing police state, all the while enabling the government to continue its power grabs. It was Congress that started us down this whole Big Brother road with its passage and subsequent renewals of the USA Patriot Act, which drove a stake through the heart of the Bill of Rights. The Patriot Act rendered First Amendment activists potential terrorists; justified broader domestic surveillance; authorized black bag “sneak-and-peak” searches of homes and offices by government agents; granted the FBI the right to come to your place of employment, demand your personal records and question your supervisors and fellow employees, all without notifying you; allowed the government access to your medical records, school records and practically every personal record about you; allowed the government to secretly demand to see records of books or magazines you’ve checked out in any public library and Internet sites you’ve visited.

The Patriot Act also gave the government the green light to monitor religious and political institutions with no suspicion of criminal wrongdoing; prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they told anyone that the government had subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation; monitor conversations between attorneys and clients; search and seize Americans’ papers and effects without showing probable cause; and jail Americans indefinitely without a trial, among other things.

And it certainly won’t be the president. Indeed, President Obama recently issued an executive order calling on private companies (phone companies, banks, Internet providers, you name it) to share their customer data (your personal data) with each other and, most importantly, the government. Here’s the problem, however: while Obama calls for vague protections for privacy and civil liberties without providing any specific recommendations, he appoints the DHS to oversee the information sharing and develop guidelines with the attorney general for how the government will collect and share the data.

Talk about putting the wolf in charge of the hen house.

Mind you, this is the same agency, rightly dubbed a “wasteful, growing, fear-mongering beast,” that is responsible for militarizing the police, weaponizing SWAT teams, spying on activists, stockpiling ammunition, distributing license plate readers to state police, carrying out military drills in American cities, establishing widespread surveillance networks through the use of fusion centers, funding city-wide surveillance systems, accelerating the domestic use of drones, and generally establishing itself as the nation’s standing army, i.e., a national police force.

This brings me back to the knotty problem of how to protect Americans from cyber attacks without further eroding our privacy rights.

Dependent as we are on computer technology for almost all aspects of our lives, it’s feasible that a cyberattack on American computer networks really could cripple both the nation’s infrastructure and its economy. So do we allow the government liberal powers to control and spy on all electronic communications flowing through the United States? Can we trust the government not to abuse its privileges and respect our privacy rights? Does it even matter, given that we have no real say in the matter?

As I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, essentially, there are three camps of thought on the question of how much power the government should have, and which camp you fall into says a lot about your view of government—or, at least, your view of whichever administration happens to be in power at the time, for the time being, the one calling the shots being the Obama administration.

In the first camp are those who trust the government to do the right thing—or, at least, they trust the Obama administration to look out for their best interests. To this group, CISA is simply a desperately needed blueprint for safeguarding us against a possible cyberattack, with a partnership between the government and Big Business serving as the most logical means of thwarting such an attack. Any suggestion that the government and its corporate cohorts might abuse this power is dismissed as conspiratorial hysterics. The problem, as technology reporter Adam Clark Estes points out, is that CISA is a “privacy nightmare” that “stomps all over civil liberties” without making “the country any safer against cyberattacks.”

In the second camp are those who not only don’t trust the government but think the government is out to get them. Sadly, they’ve got good reason to distrust the government, especially when it comes to abusing its powers and violating our rights. For example, consider that government surveillance of innocent Americans has exploded over the past decade. In fact, Wall Street Journal reporter Julia Angwin has concluded that, as a result of its spying and data collection, the U.S. government has more data on American citizens than the Stasi secret police had on East Germans. To those in this second group, CISA is nothing less than the writing on the wall that surveillance is here to stay, meaning that the government will continue to monitor, regulate and control all means of communications.

Then there’s the third camp, which neither sees government as an angel or a devil, but merely as an entity that needs to be controlled, or as Thomas Jefferson phrased it, bound “down from mischief with the chains of the Constitution.” A distrust of all who hold governmental power was rife among those who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. James Madison, the nation’s fourth president and the author of the Bill of Rights, was particularly vocal in warning against government. He once observed, “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.”

To those in the third camp, the only way to ensure balance in government is by holding government officials accountable to abiding by the rule of law. Unfortunately, with all branches of the government, including the courts, stridently working to maintain its acquired powers, and the private sector marching in lockstep, there seems to be little to protect the American people from the fast-growing electronic surveillance state.

In the meantime, surveillance has become the new normal, and the effects of this endless surveillance are taking a toll, resulting in a more anxious and submissive citizenry. As Fourth Amendment activist Alex Marthews points out,

Mass surveillance is becoming a punchline. Making it humorous makes mass surveillance seem easy and friendly and a normal part of life…we make uneasy jokes about how we should watch what we say, about the government looking over our shoulders, about cameras and informers and eyes in the sky. Even though we may not in practice think that these agencies pay us any mind, mass surveillance still creates a chilling effect: We limit what we search for online and inhibit expression of controversial viewpoints. This more submissive mentality isn’t a side effect. As far as anyone is able to measure, it’s the main effect of mass surveillance. The effect of such programs is not primarily to thwart attacks by foreign terrorists on U.S. soil; it’s to discourage challenges to the security services’ authority over our lives here at home.

The Cataclysmic Conflict Yet to Come And What We Can Do To Stop It

March 7th, 2015 by

http://www.activistpost.com/2015/03/the-cataclysmic-conflict-yet-to-come.html

Tony Cartalucci

Activist Post

Corporate-financier interests driving US foreign policy have long ago conspired to use Al Qaeda and other sectarian extremist forces to create a Pan-Arabian mercenary force with which to fight their enemies. Warned about in 2007 in a prophetic 9-page report by veteran journalist, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Seymour Hersh, then exposed through documented evidence over the course of the past four years, and now incontrovertibly unfolding before the world’s eyes, this criminal conspiracy against world peace and all of humanity can be seen in its full, horrific form.

3-7-2015 3-07-01 PM

The war special interests in the United States along with its co-conspirators plan to wage across the planet encompasses not only the Middle East and North Africa, but also Russia, China, and beyond. It threatens the lives, peace, and prosperity of all on Earth. If it is not exposed, and the special interests driving it not undermined, uprooted, and purged from humanity, none will escape the dark days that inevitably lie ahead.

The Unheeded Warning 

It was in 2007, in the New Yorker, that veteran journalist Seymour Hersh published his lengthy, prophetic report, “The Redirection Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” Within it, Washington, Riyadh, and Tel Aviv were exposed amidst a criminal conspiracy to use sectarian extremists in a proxy war against Iran and its allies in Syria and Lebanon. The impending conflict was described as “cataclysmic.”

 

The report stated explicitly that (emphasis added):

To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has cooperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.

And because the conspiracy was exposed during the administration of US President George W. Bush, attempts by the establishment to compartmentalize current, and increasingly more obvious support by the US of Al Qaeda and the so-called “Islamic State” by characterizing it as a misstep or even “treason” by the administration of US President Barack Obama, is merely a political ploy. It is clear that instead, the policy and its execution across two supposedly diametrically opposed political parties, is an example of “continuity of agenda.”

3-7-2015 3-07-55 PM

And while the political “right” in the United States in particular feigns outrage and suspicion over the Obama administration’s ties and support for sectarian extremist organizations, including the Muslim Brotherhood and factions with direct ties to Al Qaeda, it was exposed in Hersh’s 2007 article that the Bush administration had in fact initiated this support.  Obama keeping the Oval Office’s chair warm while this policy continues.

Hersh’s report would state:

There is evidence that the Administration’s redirection strategy has already benefitted the Brotherhood. The Syrian National Salvation Front is a coalition of opposition groups whose principal members are a faction led by Abdul Halim Khaddam, a former Syrian Vice-President who defected in 2005, and the Brotherhood. A former high-ranking C.I.A. officer told me, “The Americans have provided both political and financial support. The Saudis are taking the lead with financial support, but there is American involvement.” He said that Khaddam, who now lives in Paris, was getting money from Saudi Arabia, with the knowledge of the White House. (In 2005, a delegation of the Front’s members met with officials from the National Security Council, according to press reports.) A former White House official told me that the Saudis had provided members of the Front with travel documents.

[Walid] Jumblatt said he understood that the issue was a sensitive one for the White House. “I told Cheney that some people in the Arab world, mainly the Egyptians”—whose moderate Sunni leadership has been fighting the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood for decades—“won’t like it if the United States helps the Brotherhood. But if you don’t take on Syria we will be face to face in Lebanon with Hezbollah in a long fight, and one we might not win.”

This support would manifest itself both in Egypt and Syria, where the Muslim Brotherhood, its political networks, and armed groups built within them, served as the foundation of unrest and violence that took place under the cover of regional US-engineered political subversion often referred to as the “Arab Spring.” In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood would succeed temporarily in seizing power. In Syria, the Brotherhood would trigger violence and eventually devastating, protracted war.

Perhaps throughout Hersh’s 9-page report, the most sobering warning came from a former CIA agent in Lebanon. Hersh’s report would state:

Robert Baer, a former longtime C.I.A. agent in Lebanon, has been a severe critic of Hezbollah and has warned of its links to Iranian-sponsored terrorism. But now, he told me, “we’ve got Sunni Arabs preparing for cataclysmic conflict, and we will need somebody to protect the Christians in Lebanon. It used to be the French and the United States who would do it, and now it’s going to be Nasrallah and the Shiites.

3-7-2015 3-09-37 PM

And this is precisely what is now unfolding all across the Middle East and North Africa. A cataclysmic conflict driven by sectarian extremists waging war on minority groups across the region, with only Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah left to defend them – and with the United States and its allies doing everything imaginable to stop them from doing so.

Clearly the “French and the United States,” cannot reprise their role as protectors of the region’s minorities, since they have openly thrown in their lot – as predicted by Hersh in 2007 and as is evident today – with Al Qaeda and ISIS.

ISIS is Al Qaeda – And America is Backing them Both 

Attempts to compartmentalize political responsibility for the rise and perpetuation of extremists across the Arab World is not the only game being played by Western special interests. They have also attempted to compartmentalize the extremists themselves.

3-7-2015 3-12-46 PM

In Syria, Al Qaeda in the form of Jabhat al-Nusra, has been the prevailing armed faction throughout the conflict, beginning in 2011. This isn’t according to the Syrian government and “Bashar al Assad’s propaganda,” this is according to the US State Department itself which listed them as a foreign terrorist organization in 2012. In their official statement, “Terrorist Designations of the al-Nusrah Front as an Alias for al-Qa’ida in Iraq,” they reported:

Since November 2011, al-Nusrah Front has claimed nearly 600 attacks – ranging from more than 40 suicide attacks to small arms and improvised explosive device operations – in major city centers including Damascus, Aleppo, Hamah, Dara, Homs, Idlib, and Dayr al-Zawr. During these attacks numerous innocent Syrians have been killed. Through these attacks, al-Nusrah has sought to portray itself as part of the legitimate Syrian opposition while it is, in fact, an attempt by AQI to hijack the struggles of the Syrian people for its own malign purposes. AQI emir Abu Du’a is in control of both AQI and al-Nusrah. Abu Du’a was designated by the State Department under E.O. 13224 on October 3, 2011, and by the United Nations under UN Security Council Resolution 1267 on October 5, 2011. Abu Du’a also issues strategic guidance to al-Nusrah’s emir, Abu Muhammad al-Jawlani, and tasked him to begin operations in Syria.

3-7-2015 3-13-54 PM

For readers who may have believed the US State Department’s claims that “al-Nusrah has sought to portray itself as part of the legitimate Syrian opposition while it is, in fact, an attempt by AQI to hijack the struggles of the Syrian people for its own malign purposes,” they may be shocked to discover that now, apparently, al-Nusra is considered by the US and its allies among the “legitimate Syrian opposition.”

In order to make this possible, Nusra is carrying out a public relations campaign with the aid of American and European media monopolies – including Reuters who in their report titled, “Insight – Syria’s Nusra Front may leave Qaeda to form new entity,” would claim:

Leaders of Syria’s Nusra Front are considering cutting their links with al Qaeda to form a new entity backed by some Gulf states trying to topple President Bashar al-Assad, sources said.

Sources within and close to Nusra said that Qatar, which enjoys good relations with the group, is encouraging the group to go ahead with the move, which would give Nusra a boost in funding.

Of course, Nusra is already harbored, aided, armed, and abetted by NATO, using NATO territory in Turkey as a base of operations. And while Reuters attempts to portray Nusra as “the enemy of our enemy,” claiming the rebranding and boost in funding would help them fight the “Islamic State,” by all accounts Nusra and ISIS are already one in the same.

What’s worse is that this trick of portraying Al Qaeda as a bifurcated movement at odds with itself to compartmentalize and use the same organization for multiple, and at times, opposing objectives, was already seen during the US occupation of Iraq.

The New York Times in its article, “Leader of Al Qaeda group in Iraq was fictional, U.S. military says,” would admit:

Brigadier General Kevin Bergner, the chief American military spokesman, said the elusive Baghdadi was actually a fictional character whose audio-taped declarations were provided by an elderly actor named Abu Adullah al-Naima.

The ruse, Bergner said, was devised by Abu Ayub al-Masri, the Egyptian-born leader of Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, who was trying to mask the dominant role that foreigners play in that insurgent organization.

The ploy was to invent Baghdadi, a figure whose very name establishes his Iraqi pedigree, install him as the head of a front organization called the Islamic State of Iraq and then arrange for Masri to swear allegiance to him. Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s deputy, sought to reinforce the deception by referring to Baghdadi in his video and Internet statements.

Indeed, the “Islamic State in Iraq” was fictional. It was Al Qaeda all along, just like the “Islamic State in Syria and Iraq” or “ISIS” is also fictional, a functionary of Al Qaeda and the foreign interests sponsoring it.

The reality of this couldn’t be illustrated any more perfectly than with the case of Libyan terrorist Abdelhakim Belhadj. Having been a member of the “Libyan Islamic Fighting Group” or LIFG for decades, he would literally travel to Afghanistan where he would fight American soldiers in the wake of 9/11. He was even captured and enrolled in the United States’ infamous “rendition program.” Upon release from prison in Libya, he would promptly organize and lead armed rebellion against the government Muammar Qaddafi, with extensive NATO arms, cash, and even air cover.

2007 West Point Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) report examining the demographics of foreign fighters caught in Iraq fighting then occupying US troops would reveal that the NATO-backed rebels in Libya led by Belhaj were in fact fighters drawn from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) listed by both the US State Department and UK Home Office as a foreign terrorist organization.

3-7-2015 3-15-11 PM

In essence then, the United States and its NATO partners knowingly and willfully handed the nation of Libya and its people over to Al Qaeda. Despite Belhaj’s documented terrorist past and present, US politicians would meet with him, showering upon him accolades, praise, and continued political and military support. Among these politicians were US Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham who met and literally shook Belhaj’s hand while standing upon the ruins of Libya.

That McCain and Graham are both Republicans supporting terrorism, alongside a Democrat US President also allegedly supporting terrorism, illustrates perfectly that special interests own and control both sides of the political aisle, using opposing rhetoric to appeal members on either side, while both sides carry forward the exact same agenda.

More recently, US news sources claimed Belhaj was now leading Libya’s branch of ISIS. The Washington Times would report in an article titled, “U.S. backed rebel reportedly leads Islamic State in Libya,” that:

Major news out of Libya as Abdelhakim Belhadj, the former head of the al Qaeda-linked Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, and a major player in the U.S.-backed overthrow of Moammar Gadhafi, has reportedly joined the Islamic State and is leading its forces there. This according to The Blaze National Security journalist Sara Carter on Twitter, and Fox News’ Catherine Herridge in a Fox News report.

Western news sources had reported as early as November of last year that many of the so-called “rebels” in Libya had begun forming under the banner of ISIS. CNN in an article titled, “ISIS comes to Libya,” claimed:

The black flag of ISIS flies over government buildings. Police cars carry the group’s insignia. The local football stadium is used for public executions. A town in Syria or Iraq? No. A city on the coast of the Mediterranean, in Libya.

Fighters loyal to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are now in complete control of the city of Derna, population of about 100,000, not far from the Egyptian border and just about 200 miles from the southern shores of the European Union. The fighters are taking advantage of political chaos to rapidly expand their presence westwards along the coast, Libyan sources tell CNN.This means that US politicians served a direct role in propping up ISIS in Libya, whether they claim it was incidental rather than intentional – a cautionary tale to be told as these very same politicians attempt a repeat performance in Syria and beyond.
The rebranding of NATO’s terrorist proxies in Libya and attempts to literally back and arm Al Qaeda’s Nusra front in Syria portend an impending conflict of a scale yet to be seen – one involving Libya’s neighbor Egypt, and Syria’s neighbor, Iran.

The “Cataclysmic Conflict” Yet to Come 

Egypt narrowly escaped subjugation by the West through the very same Muslim Brotherhood networks used to destabilize and destroy Syria. After initially bending to the sociopolitical currents unleashed by the 2011 “Arab Spring,” the Egyptian military sprung back, ejecting the Muslim Brotherhood from power amid a military coup.

Egypt’s new military-led government moved with merciless lighting speed in suppressing the Muslim Brotherhood domestically. Hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood members, including leaders have been rounded up, tried, and sentenced to death. The military-led government has exhibited zero tolerance both for militant groups within their borders, and street demonstrations agitated by US NGOs and used for cover behind which militants operate.

3-7-2015 3-17-09 PM

All of this was carried out, as drastic as many of the measures may seem, with the intention ofsparing Egypt the same protracted conflict Syria is now suffering.

The failure of the West’s “Arab Spring” putsch with the fall of the Muslim Brotherhood, and its subsequent inability to stoke sufficient unrest from within Egypt’s borders has led to the sudden and convenient conjuring of ISIS in neighboring Libya. Already, heinous acts of barbarity have been carried out against Egyptian citizens residing in Libya for the sole purpose of stoking sectarian flames within Egypt’s borders.

Egypt has responded by supporting military factions in Libya fighting Belhaj’s sectarian extremists, now operating under the banner of ISIS. Egypt has also conducted airstrikes on Libyan territory itself.  As NATO’s proxies commit to ever bolder acts of provocation, the conflict is set only to expand.

What is to come, and the purpose of unveiling ISIS in Libya, is a torrent of terrorism and militancy, backed by NATO, aimed directly at the Egyptian military and – if possible – into the heart of Egypt itself.

Egypt, with a population of over 80 million people, if made to suffer the same sort of protracted conflict Syria is now suffering at the hands of Western backed terrorists, would cost an immeasurable loss in life and destabilize not only both North Africa and the Middle East – across which Egypt’s sphere of influence lies – but also endanger international shipping through the Suez Canal and threaten Europe with an influx of refugees fleeing what would be a war zone of unprecedented modern day dimensions.

3-7-2015 3-18-07 PM

Either as part of a strategy to destabilize and destroy Egypt, or to excise from Cairo geopolitical concessions including the abandonment of Syria as well as Egypt’s backing amid increasing hostilities toward Iran, the West’s use of ISIS in Libya is yet another manifestation of what veteran journalist Seymour Hersh warned about in his 2007 report.

ISIS will form the foundation of a regional mercenary force aimed conveniently at the hearts of each and every one of Wall Street and Washington’s enemies, while suspiciously, ISIS spares all of the West’s allies.

The ongoing violence in Libya and Syria is only the beginning. Should Egypt and Iran be mired in the same widespread violence, fueled by billions upon billions in cash, equipment, and weapons flowing from all corners of the Earth into the region, the “cataclysmic conflict” warned about in 2007 will finally come to pass.

3-7-2015 3-19-07 PM

It will not end in the Middle East. If successful in establishing hegemony there, the chaos will spread to all corners of the globe. First to southern Russia and western China, then beyond. The question of whether or not one will eventually be affected by this conflict is not a matter of if, but a matter of when.

Uprooting the Conspirators 

This is not “Obama’s” war. Nor is this a “Republican” or “Neo-Con” war. This is a war for global hegemony waged by the corporations, banks, and institutions upon Wall Street and in Washington that transcend elections and own parties on all sides and in all corners of the current, prevailing political paradigm. Appealing to a political party controlled by these interests is the very definition of futile.

3-7-2015 3-20-13 PM

ImageGrowing your own food locally can be profitable and satisfying. It is also one of several means of localization with which to undermine and redistribute the immense concentration of unwarranted power and influence enjoyed by the corporate-financier interests driving chaos globally. 

In order to undermine and uproot these special interests, these corporations, banks, and institutions must be replaced by local alternatives – on a national level around the planet, and on a provincial, state, and local level within each nation.

It is not merely “Walmart,” “Pepsi,” or “Exxon” themselves as corporations, but rather the concentration of power, wealth, and influence these corporations collectively represent. Often it is the same board members and financial interests holding stakes in each corporation, and it is this handful of shareholders that in turn, fund policy think tanks behind policy papers engineering wars of aggression, including the current proxy war being waged through “ISIS” and “Al Qaeda.”

3-7-2015 3-21-22 PM

Decentralizing these vast monopolies through the creation and proliferation of local alternatives will systematically undermine their capacity to wield the unwarranted power and influence they currently enjoy. Whether it is decentralizing big-retailbig-telecombig-pharma, or big-auto in general, or targeting specific monopolies like Facebook, there are already people working around the world to make this happen and simply need more people to leave the perpetual distractions and diversions of global politics, and begin paying into localization.

The alternative media has already proven the power of people turning from consumers and into producers, and the redistribution and balance of power and influence it creates. Imagine tackling all monopolies in a similar manner.

While the conflicts ravaging the Middle East and North Africa seem “remote,” the fact that similar chaos is now being sown by NATO on the doorstep of Europe in Ukraine, means that if left unchallenged, it is only a matter of time before these conflicts affect everyone directly, no matter where one lives. Rather than organizing protests or taking up arms in an impossible, fictional future battle against tyranny, decentralizing massive monopolies globally, and building up our communities locally is something we can begin doing today – with something as simple as planting a garden to first reduce our dependency on big-agriculture.   In the near future, these activities could become profitable, and before that, certainly satisfying and constructive.

We have nothing to lose by trying, and everything to lose if we don’t.

PCR Interviewed by pravda.ru about America History Curriculum

 

PCR Interviewed by pravda.ru about the attempt by the Advanced Placement History Curriculum to introduce some honesty into the teaching of US history

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/10/03/pcr-interviewed-pravda-ru-attempt-advanced-placement-history-curriculum-introduce-honesty-teaching-us-history/

By PCR & pravda.ru editor

The tendency of US history textbooks is to justify any US atrocity from the point of view of the defense of US interests. “Exceptional” America is exempt from laws of morality applied to other countries.

Republicans are attempting to prevent the introduction of the Advanced Placement curriculum until the textbook can be “revised” in order to ensure that students are propagandized rather than informed.

The editors of pravda.ru asked PCR for his view of the matter. This is what he said:

“In my opinion, the Republican Party today and a majority of Americans who think of themselves as conservatives are not, in fact, traditional American conservatives.  They comprise a form of brownshirts who are intolerant of dissent and want to impose social control.  They support government instead of the Constitution, and they frown on civil liberty as a form of legal permissiveness that coddles criminals and terrorists.

“These so-called conservatives attribute the US defeat in Vietnam to student protests and to journalists who disputed Washington’s lies. They regard protests as a threat to the status quo, and not as a way to express public dissent from government policies.  Conservatives are for democracy only as long as they control behavior in the democracy.

“In the 1940s and 1950s public school courses such as history and literature were largely up to the individual teacher. Consequently, there was a lot of diversity in what was taught. As time passed, especially after the 1964 Civil Rights Act and school integration, courses became increasingly standardized, partly in order to judge school performance with standardized state or national testing, and partly, according to some, to ensure that minorities were not offended by course content.  The obvious consequence is that a form of national brainwashing was put in place that instilled in the young acceptable beliefs  about their country.

“For the so-called conservatives, any criticism of America is an unpatriotic act.  In the 21st century it has become increasingly difficult to protest in the US.  The former Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, declared that the new department had shifted its focus from terrorists to “domestic extremists,” a group she defined as war protesters, environmentalists, and animal rights advocates.  Indeed, a national police force called Homeland Security itself indicates an increasing concern with protecting those in control from dissent.

“The increasing gratuitous violence of police against members of the public is also an indication that there has been a fundamental shift in the position of the government in relation to the people.  The purpose of government in the US is not to serve the will of the people, but to conform the behavior of the people to the will of the government.

“The same thing appears to be the case in Australia, Canada, the UK, and Europe.  For example, in the UK, 99% of the people are opposed to fracking, but the government has ignored the people and permits fracking to take place under the homes of people without their consent.

“In the West, I think that the idea of democracy is dead.  Democracy is no longer a respected value.  Elections serve as a cloak to mask the death of democracy.”

LESSONS FROM THE BEGINNING (III)

March 6th, 2015 by

montezumaconstitution@gmail.com

 By Michael Gaddy

(Authors note: Several readers have asked about the importance of covering the fact Madison, Hamilton and others were pushing a nationalist form of government. This information is critical because the nationalist/monarchial form of government that was introduced and supported by Madison, Hamilton and others was repeatedly defeated, both in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and the subsequent State Ratifying Conventions. Unfortunately, what our founders intended, a Republic, has long since been abandoned for the nationalist form of government the majority opposed. In fact, our government has morphed into a National Socialist form of government not ideologically different than the National Socialist government of Germany in the 30’s and 40’s.)

Regardless of how many times you read it, or how many revisionist court historians write it, there is absolutely no evidence available which indicates there was a groundswell of support among the people for abandoning the Articles of Confederation.

 Where might one go to discover the truth of my allegation? Why not to the words of the man who most wanted to change the limitations of the Articles to a form of government much more to his liking; a monarchy, and failing that, a strong centralized national government: Alexander Hamilton. Here it is in his words.

Men of intelligence, discovered the feebleness of the structure, [Articles of Confederation] but the great body of the people, too much engrossed with their distresses to contemplate any but the immediate causes of them, were ignorant of the defects of their Constitution.”

Patrick Henry of Virginia saw through the deception; he did not believe the Articles were weak. Speaking on the subject he said:

“The Confederation; this same despised Government, merits, in my opinion, the highest encomium: it carried us through a long and dangerous war. It rendered us victorious in that bloody conflict with a powerful nation: it has secured us a territory greater than any Monarch possesses. And a government which has been thus strong and vigorous be accused of imbecility and abandoned for a want of energy…Why then tell us dangers to terrify us into an adoption of this new Government? And yet who knows the dangers this new system may produce; they are out of sight of the common people. It is for them I fear the adoption of this new system. Sir, it is the fortune of a free people, not to be intimidated by imaginary dangers. Fear is the passion of slaves.”

We know that the framers of the Articles of Confederation had included the following in Article II of our first Constitution.

“Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.”

This was one of the conditions present in the Articles that the nationalist/monarchists knew they had to eliminate. The nationalist/monarchist did not want to contend with the ideas, questions and objections from 13 different colonies, but instead wanted to have one people in aggregate (a nation) controlled by a central all-powerful form of government, which they would lead. This would leave the states having very little to no voice in how they would be governed. Is any of this beginning to sound familiar?

The states, “retaining their sovereignty, freedom and independence” from the control of “men of intelligence” as Hamilton had described himself and his cronies, would have as their government a confederated republic, the complete antithesis of a nationalist form of government. In addition, none of the “men of intelligence” wanted a government that would be limited to those powers which would be “expressly delegated” through the “consent of the governed.”

Again, understanding the difference between “expressly delegated” powers and “granted” powers is to understand the crucial difference in tyranny and limited, representative government. Expressly delegated means there is little to no room for “interpretation” by government employees and bureaucrats and clearly defines the intent of our founders.

It is of the highest importance that one understands that the federal government, in the Articles of Confederation, could operate only on the states; it had no control or power over individuals.

If an egregious or tyrannical law was passed by the federal government, the state had the ability to simply ignore it. The federal government could not arrest or imprison a state. Therefore, the “intelligent men” in Hamilton’s view realized they must have a national form of government that could and would act on the individual.

I believe this to be the very first confrontation between nationalists and advocates of State’s Rights, a battle that would surface again in the 1830’s with Justice Joseph Story and Senator Daniel Webster on the side of nationalism and Senator John C. Calhoun on the side of State’s Rights. (This battle of words and ideas will be covered later in our studies) This battle of ideas would eventually lead to an open, bloody war in 1861; a war that would take the lives of over 700,000 individuals and permanently install a nationalist form of government in our country.

Every malady and malaise that faces us in our country today can be traced to the implementation of nationalism instead of a strict adherence to the rights of the people of a state to nullify acts of government. Ah, but ignorance reigns supreme, for on any given day you can find a group of people somewhere, who mistakenly believe they are being “patriotic,” robotically pledging allegiance to “One nation…indivisible” a phrase written by a national socialist.

It is also of importance that when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 opened in May of that year, a time when representatives of only 6 states were in attendance, the first resolution adopted stated, “a national government ought to be established.” Again, to confirm that the idea of a national form of government was repeatedly voted down in the Constitutional Convention of 1787, once representatives from other states had arrived, the record of the proceedings as recorded by Robert Yates, delegate from New York, commonly known as “Yates Minutes,” stated the following:

“Ellsworth. [Oliver Ellsworth, delegate from Connecticut] I propose, and therefore move, to expunge the word ‘national’ in the first resolve, and to place in the room of it, government of the United States,’ which was agreed to nem con.”

Hopefully, this session has clearly illustrated that our current form of government which is totally nationalist in nature, though it was proposed and supported by several of our founders who declared themselves to be “intelligent men,” is not the form of government favored by the majority of our founders and ratified by the several states.

To be continued.

In Liberty
