The foreign policy for dealing with radical Islam pursued by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton can best be described as the intersection of ideology and incompetence.
Obama’s “amore” for radical Islam began in 2009, soon after his inauguration, when he ordered his administration not to support the Iranian Green Revolution after thousands of brave Iranian democracy protesters rose up against the brutal Khamenei regime.
According to the Wall Street Journal: “Obama administration officials at the time were working behind the scenes with the Sultan of Oman to open a channel to Tehran. The potential for talks with Iran-and with Mr. Khamenei as the ultimate arbiter of any nuclear agreement,” one that would prove to be a national security disaster for the US. As it turned out, Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement only strengthen the hard-liners; since completion of the agreement, Tehran has stepped up arrests of political opponents.
In 2010, Obama ordered his advisors to produce a secret report, later known as Presidential Study Directive-11 (PSD-11), which concluded that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting stable but authoritarian regimes in the Middle East and North Africa to one backing, what Obama Administration officials considered groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and the Turkish AK Party, now led by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, as a so-called “moderate” alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 as a Sunni Islamist religious, political and social movement, whose fundamental goal remains Islam’s global domination and the implementation of Sharia. Although the Muslim Brotherhood uses political instruments more than violence, its radical goals are no different from al-Qaeda and ISIS.
It has long been suspected that Obama, not only supports the Muslim Brotherhood, but that his administration is infiltrated by the Brotherhood, including Hillary Clinton’s long-serving assistant, Huma Abedin, who has enjoyed an intensely close relationship with the Islamist organization for decades.
Therein rests the motivation for the policies formulated and actions taken by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in Egypt, Libya and Syria, all of which led to the growth of radical Islam in North Africa and the Middle East.
The Tunisian revolution in December 2010 and the rise of the Islamist Ennahda Movement in that country was quickly followed by the Cairo protests that began on January 25, 2011 under the direction of Egypt’s largest opposition group, the Muslim Brotherhood. The protests and associated violence led to the resignation on February 11, 2011 of long-time US ally, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. There are now a number of reports indicating the US cooperated with and attempted to sustain the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, including an alleged Brotherhood agent inside the US Embassy in Cairo.
Violent regime change in support of radical Islam began in earnest on February 15, 2011, when a rebellion broke out in Benghazi, Libya against the authoritarian regime of Muammar Qaddafi. Toppling Qaddafi had long been a goal of Islamic militant groups, including al-Qaeda and the local Libyan al-Qaeda affiliate, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), a key player in the anti-Qaddafi rebellion.
Within a few weeks of the outbreak of fighting in eastern Libya, Obama has signed a secret order authorizing a covert CIA operation to support Islamist rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi. Both inside and outside the Obama administration, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was among the most vocal early proponents of using U.S. military force to unseat Qaddafi. Seven months and thousands of more unnecessary deaths later, in October 2011, after an extended military campaign with sustained Western support, Islamist rebel forces conquered the country and shot Qaddafi dead. Many will recall Hillary Clinton, on October 20, 2011, cackling to a TV news reporter over the death of Qaddafi: “We came, we saw, he died.”
Since then, Libya has been in a constant state of chaos, with factional infighting, no uniting leader and has provided a haven for ISIS and other Islamic terrorists; culminating in the September 11, 2012 attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi and the death of four Americans.
In released, but redacted emails, Hillary Clinton expressed interest in arming Libyan opposition groups using private security contractors. In an April 8, 2011 email to her then-deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, Clinton wrote: “FYI. The idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should be considered.” It now appears probable that, in 2011, at Clinton’s urging, Obama secretly approved the arming of rebels in Libya and, later Syria by the same method, via a third party, likely Qatar, who had brokered the sale of more than $100 million in crude oil from rebel-held areas.
The rise of ISIS can be directly linked to the power vacuum left after the premature withdrawal of US forces from Iraq in December 2011 and fueled by American abdication of a foreign policy in Syria, where we sub-contracted our interests to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey. Not surprisingly, those countries pursued their own interests; the Saudis supporting radical Islamic Salafists, while the Turks and Qataris backed the Muslim Brotherhood.
By the summer of 2012, Turkey, together with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, had constructed a fully operational secret command and control center to facilitate communications and the movement of weapons to the Syrian rebel groups. The center in Adana, a city in southern Turkey about 100 km (60 miles) from the Syrian border, was set up after Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah al-Saud visited Turkey and requested it. Adana is home to Incirlik, a large Turkish/U.S. air force base which Washington has used in the past for reconnaissance and military logistics operations. Adana is in close proximity to the Turkish port of Iskenderun, a major transit point for arms destined for the Syrian rebels.
It is important to note that Obama’s friend, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is a Sunni Islamist, a vehement opponent of Syrian President Bashar al Assad and a fervent supporter of the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood.
Assad has placed emphasis on controlling northwest Syria, which safeguards his Shia-Alawite home region and his base of support, as well as securing the strategically critical coastal area containing the Latakia airbase used by Russian forces and the important port of Tartus – a situation that has largely left eastern Syria along the Iraq border open for Islamist exploitation.
A Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report sent to Hillary Clinton and other administration officials in August 2012 and declassified in May 2015, stated that “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI (Al- Qaeda in Iraq, which became ISIS) are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” and being supported by “the West, Gulf countries and Turkey.”
The report goes into detail about how the West was actively helping those opposition groups control the eastern border of Syria near the Iraqi province of Anbar and the strategic city of Mosul, both of which eventually came under control of ISIS.
The stupidity of Obama’s ideological and Muslim Brotherhood-centric policy in dealing with radical Islam is only exceeded by the galactic incompetence in which it was carried out, and has left us living in a more dangerous world.

America’s Gestapo: The FBI’s Reign of Terror
By John W. Whitehead
“We want no Gestapo or secret police. The FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail. J. Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him.”—President Harry S. Truman
“Don’t Be a Puppet” is the message the FBI is sending young Americans.
June 14, 2016 “Information Clearing House” – “Rutherford Institute” – As part of the government’s so-called ongoing war on terror, the nation’s de facto secret police force is now recruiting students and teachers to spy on each other and report anyone who appears to have the potential to be “anti-government” or “extremist.”
Using the terms “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably, the government continues to add to its growing list of characteristics that could distinguish an individual as a potential domestic terrorist.
For instance, you might be a domestic terrorist in the eyes of the FBI (and its network of snitches) if you:
- express libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
- exhibit Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership)
- read survivalist literature, including apocalyptic fictional books
- show signs of self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
- fear an economic collapse
- buy gold and barter items
- subscribe to religious views concerning the book of Revelation
- voice fears about Big Brother or big government
- expound about constitutional rights and civil liberties
- believe in a New World Order conspiracy
Despite its well-publicized efforts to train students, teachers, police officers, hairdressers, store clerks, etc., into government eyes and ears, the FBI isn’t relying on a nation of snitches to carry out its domestic spying.
There’s no need.
The nation’s largest law enforcement agency rivals the NSA in resources, technology, intelligence, and power. Yet while the NSA has repeatedly come under fire for its domestic spying programs, the FBI has continued to operate its subversive and clearly unconstitutional programs with little significant oversight or push-back from the public, Congress or the courts. Just recently, for example, a secret court gave the agency the green light to quietly change its privacy rules for accessing NSA data on Americans’ international communications.
Indeed, as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the FBI has become the embodiment of how power, once acquired, can be easily corrupted and abused.
When and if a true history of the FBI is ever written, it will not only track the rise of the American police state but it will also chart the decline of freedom in America.
Owing largely to the influence and power of the FBI, the United States—once a nation that abided by the rule of law and held the government accountable for its actions—has steadily devolved into a police state where justice is one-sided, a corporate elite runs the show, representative government is a mockery, police are extensions of the military, surveillance is rampant, privacy is extinct, and the law is little more than a tool for the government to browbeat the people into compliance.
The FBI’s laundry list of crimes against the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation tactics, harassment and indoctrination, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property.
And that’s just based on what we know.
Whether the FBI is planting undercover agents in churches, synagogues and mosques; issuing fake emergency letters to gain access to Americans’ phone records; using intimidation tactics to silence Americans who are critical of the government; recruiting high school students to spy on and report fellow students who show signs of being future terrorists; or persuading impressionable individuals to plot acts of terror and then entrapping them, the overall impression of the nation’s secret police force is that of a well-dressed thug, flexing its muscles and doing the boss’ dirty work of ensuring compliance, keeping tabs on potential dissidents, and punishing those who dare to challenge the status quo.
The FBI was established in 1908 as a small task force assigned to deal with specific domestic crimes. Initially quite limited in its abilities to investigate so-called domestic crimes, the FBI has been transformed into a mammoth federal policing and surveillance agency. Unfortunately, whatever minimal restrictions kept the FBI’s surveillance activities within the bounds of the law all but disappeared in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. The USA Patriot Act gave the FBI and other intelligence agencies carte blanche authority in investigating Americans suspected of being anti-government.
As the FBI’s powers have grown, its abuses have mounted.
The FBI continues to monitor Americans engaged in lawful First Amendment activities.
COINTELPRO, the FBI program created to “disrupt, misdirect, discredit, and neutralize” groups and individuals the government considers politically objectionable, was aimed not so much at the criminal element but at those who challenged the status quo—namely, those expressing anti-government sentiments such as Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lennon. It continues to this day, albeit in other guises.
The FBI has become a master in the art of entrapment.
In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the FBI has not only targeted vulnerable individuals but has also lured them into fake terror plots while actually equipping them with the organization, money, weapons and motivation to carry out the plots—entrapment—and then jailing them for their so-called terrorist plotting. This is what the FBI characterizes as “forward leaning—preventative—prosecutions.”
FBI agents are among the nation’s most notorious lawbreakers.
In addition to creating certain crimes in order to then “solve” them, the FBI also gives certain informants permission to break the law, “including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies,” in exchange for their cooperation on other fronts. USA Today estimates that agents have authorized criminals to engage in as many as 15 crimes a day. Some of these informants are getting paid astronomical sums: one particularly unsavory fellow, later arrested for attempting to run over a police officer, was actually paid $85,000 for his help laying the trap for an entrapment scheme.
The FBI’s powers, expanded after 9/11, have given its agents carte blanche access to Americans’ most personal information.
The agency’s National Security Letters, one of the many illicit powers authorized by the USA Patriot Act, allows the FBI to secretly demand that banks, phone companies, and other businesses provide them with customer information and not disclose the demands. An internal audit of the agency found that the FBI practice of issuing tens of thousands of NSLs every year for sensitive information such as phone and financial records, often in non-emergency cases, is riddled with widespread violations.
The FBI’s spying capabilities are on a par with the NSA.
The FBI’s surveillance technology boasts an invasive collection of spy tools ranging from Stingray devices that can track the location of cell phones to Triggerfish devices which allow agents to eavesdrop on phone calls. In one case, the FBI actually managed to remotely reprogram a “suspect’s” wireless internet card so that it would send “real-time cell-site location data to Verizon, which forwarded the data to the FBI.”
The FBI’s hacking powers have gotten downright devious.
FBI agents not only have the ability to hack into any computer, anywhere in the world, but they can also control that computer and all its stored information, download its digital contents, switch its camera or microphone on or off and even control other computers in its network. Given the breadth of the agency’s powers, the showdown between Apple and the FBI over customer privacy appears to be more spectacle than substance.
James Comey, current director of the FBI, knows enough to say all the right things about the need to abide by the Constitution, all the while his agency routinely discards it. Comey argues that the government’s powers shouldn’t be limited, especially when it comes to carrying out surveillance on American citizens. Comey continues to lobby Congress and the White House to force technology companies such as Apple and Google to keep providing the government with backdoor access to Americans’ cell phones.
The FBI’s reach is more invasive than ever.
This is largely due to the agency’s nearly unlimited resources (its minimum budget alone in fiscal year 2015 was $8.3 billion), the government’s vast arsenal of technology, the interconnectedness of government intelligence agencies, and information sharing through fusion centers—data collecting intelligence agencies spread throughout the country that constantly monitor communications (including those of American citizens), everything from internet activity and web searches to text messages, phone calls and emails.
Today, the FBI employs more than 35,000 individuals and operates more than 56 field offices in major cities across the U.S., as well as 400 resident agencies in smaller towns, and more than 50 international offices. In addition to their “data campus,” which houses more than 96 million sets of fingerprints from across the United States and elsewhere, the FBI is also, according to The Washington Post, “building a vast repository controlled by people who work in a top-secret vault on the fourth floor of the J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building in Washington. This one stores the profiles of tens of thousands of Americans and legal residents who are not accused of any crime. What they have done is appear to be acting suspiciously to a town sheriff, a traffic cop or even a neighbor.”
If there’s one word to describe the FBI’s covert tactics, it’s creepy.
The agency’s biometric database has grown to massive proportions, the largest in the world, encompassing everything from fingerprints, palm, face and iris scans to DNA, and is being increasingly shared between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in an effort to target potential criminals long before they ever commit a crime.
This is what’s known as pre-crime.
If it were just about fighting the “bad guys,” that would be one thing. But as countless documents make clear, the FBI has no qualms about using its extensive powers in order to blackmail politicians, spy on celebrities and high-ranking government officials, and intimidate dissidents of all stripes.
It’s an old tactic, used effectively by former authoritarian regimes.
In fact, as historian Robert Gellately documents, the Nazi police state was repeatedly touted as a model for other nations to follow, so much so that Hoover actually sent one of his right-hand men, Edmund Patrick Coffey, to Berlin in January 1938 at the invitation of Germany’s secret police. As Gellately noted, “After five years of Hitler’s dictatorship, the Nazi police had won the FBI’s seal of approval.”
Indeed, so impressed was the FBI with the Nazi order that, as the New York Times revealed, in the decades after World War II, the FBI, along with other government agencies, aggressively recruited at least a thousand Nazis, including some of Hitler’s highest henchmen, brought them to America, hired them on as spies and informants, and then carried out a massive cover-up campaign to ensure that their true identities and ties to Hitler’s holocaust machine would remain unknown. Moreover, anyone who dared to blow the whistle on the FBI’s illicit Nazi ties found himself spied upon, intimidated, harassed and labeled a threat to national security.
So not only have American taxpayers been paying to keep ex-Nazis on the government payroll for decades but we’ve been subjected to the very same tactics used by the Third Reich: surveillance, militarized police, over-criminalization, and a government mindset that views itself as operating outside the bounds of the law.
This is how freedom falls, and tyrants come to power.
The similarities between the American police state and past totalitarian regimes such as Nazi Germany grow more pronounced with each passing day.
Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. These are the hallmarks of every authoritarian regime from the Roman Empire to modern-day America.
Yet it’s the secret police—tasked with silencing dissidents, ensuring compliance, and maintaining a climate of fear—who sound the death knell for freedom in every age.
Just imagine what John could accomplish if he would drop out of the Corporate Law of the Sea, and form a common Law Firm. John, give up your esquire status and the whole damn country will be buying your books.

Life is indeed complicated and stressful! There is so much to do and so little time to do it. What with jobs, commutes, kids, homes, vacations, entertainment and sports, it’s so hard to pay much attention to what our government is doing. But just because we look the other way does not diminish the affect of government’s actions on our daily lives, much less our bank accounts.
Many of government’s actions are hard to see. Federal, state and local governments pass law after law and somehow we think we are immune from the consequences of those laws. Government is like a mosquito. You don’t feel the actual penetration of your skin, only the itch after the mosquito has withdrawn its blood-sucking straw and buzzed away. Come to think of it, government is very much like a mosquito with its blood-sucking taxes and zillions of rules, regulations, restrictions and ordinances that control every aspect of our lives. (the rules are the “itch” after the government has employed its weapon of choice by raiding your wallet ….. taxes.)
So what has government really done for you? Where do we start? Why not start with illegal immigration?
Your federal government (that’s the 545 people who control almost everything in America – a president, 435 representatives, 100 Senators and 9 Supreme Court Justices) has seen fit to encourage (indeed provide a magnet) illegal immigration by not enforcing existing law and sealing our borders, as they are mandated to do. We are absolutely convinced they have done so on purpose. And for their skullduggery we get to pay for it all. The price tag for schools, language tutors, medical treatment, anchor babies, social services and lost jobs to legal Americans by illegal aliens, has been estimated at nearly $300 to $500 Billion per year. We had no say in this policy, as our representatives and senators know what is best for us. Well, don’t they? Besides the cost, comes the premeditated, unconscionable erosion of our American sovereignty. And speaking of American sovereignty, let’s not forget NAFTA, CAFTA, the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) and the Security and Prosperity Partnership (North American Union).
Now let’s look at what the collusion of the radical, international environmentalists and the U. S. government together, have done for us.
1- The purposeful and unconstitutional theft of our property rights with environmental law after environmental law.
2- Severely restricts development of new crude oil resources on American soil for 30 years.
3- Stopped all construction of new power generation and refineries on American soil for 30 years.
4- Trying to take control of every mud puddle in America (Clean Water Restoration Act) – EPA rules).
5- Instituting an ill-conceived and dastardly policy to turn “food” into fuel.
6- Brainwashing the entire American population (including our children in public schools and colleges) into believing that we are the cause of the destruction of our planet and must give up our cars and our lifestyle and pay for CO2 emissions. (wealth redistribution)
7- Along with all this brainwashing comes the propaganda and lies of man-caused global warming.
8- The mandated institution of a National Animal Index System (NAIS) to register every animal and every premise in America, that might be harboring livestock or other animals. It’s been shelved for now but it will be back.
9- But worst of all comes the treasonous degradation of the foundation of our laws, our constitution, by integrating UN and European social and environmental policies into law by presidential executive order and without the debate and ratification of such additions to our laws by the U. S. Congress, as required by the constitution. And what is the result of the government’s collusion with the radical, international environmentalists? Rapidly accelerating costs of everything and the direct and inexcusable loss of our freedom and liberty.
Then we have the government’s monetary policy under the Federal Reserve. But then the Federal Reserve isn’t a government entity, is it? It is run by a bunch of elite bankers who tweak the supply of money (money that essentially has no intrinsic value) by moving the interest rate they charge other banks, up or down, in response to perceived events that they, in their infinite wisdom have determined that such changes are required. Unfortunately, they are usually wrong or go too far and set off a chain of events that they then try to over-correct and end up acting like a teenager just learning to drive. The Feds have the power to send us into a recession, or rapid inflation, or stagflation and they do. Who pays the price for their tomfoolery and their inability to properly make adjustments to a dynamic system? We do!
And of course, let’s not forget the government’s social policies. From the New Deal in the 1930’s to President Johnson’s Great Society, the blood-sucking government has eaten up trillions of our tax dollars to solve a problem (or is it buy votes with our money) that shows no signs of getting any better. In so doing, they have robbed the pride, self-reliance, independence and a can-do spirit out of millions of Americans who have sold their souls and their freedom for a piece of the American hard-working producer’s sweat equity. Instead of growing in independence, they have grown totally dependent. These folks that drink at the “well” of the government’s largess, become unproductive and an increasing load on the rest of us.
Finally, the good ‘Ole Federal government passes law after law that then filters down to state and local governments. This then creates law-driven symptoms that have us all running around like chickens with their heads cut off, trying to stop the state and local governments from making our lives even more miserable than the Feds have already done. In our actions to thwart these government-manufactured “symptoms”, we take our collective “eyes” off of the ball that is the direct cause of all these local symptoms; the 545 people that control everything in America. Socialists and radical environmentalists camp at government’s door, vying for any favor they can get from government, in return for money, votes, or perks offered by the lobbyists. Our system of government has become so corrupt that only a revolution can ever bring sanity to what is now hopelessly insane and out of control.
There is so much more that government has done for (or is it TO) us but there isn’t enough space here to describe them all. So what HAS government done for you? They have taken our pride, our hard-earned money and our liberty, for policies that far exceed the limits of commons sense, much less the individual, inalienable rights, that are the irrevocable gift of our creator.
But then, what with jobs, commutes, kids, homes, vacations, entertainment and sports, it’s so hard to pay much attention to what our government is doing.
Wasn’t it President Ronald Reagan who said. “The most terrifying words in the English language are: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” He also said: “Government is not the solution. Government is the problem.”
If only government would just get out of the way and let the spirit of a free American people prosper and save themselves and the rest of the world, like some have said we were pre-ordained to do. The sad truth is that, government will not get out of the way unless the people force them.
We describe some of these conditions in our new video:

This article was written by Joshua Krause and originally published at The Daily Sheeple
There’s one thing that all gun-grabbing politicians have in common. They are all quite adamant that they don’t want to take your guns. They’ll tell you over and over again that all they want is a few reasonable regulations. Every once in a blue moon they’ll let their guard down in front of an reporter, and reveal their true long-term intentions, but by and large they’re always trying to put a reassuring face on their gun grabbing agenda.
Obama, for instance, has consistently claimed throughout his presidency that all he wants is a few “reasonable” restrictions, and that all he intends to do is keep guns out of the hands of “bad guys.” Whenever he talks about it, however, you can read between the lines and find his ulterior motives.
At a recent Town Hall meeting, Obama was put on the spot by gun store owner, who asked him why he wants to restrict gun use for law-abiding citizens. The video has since gone viral among liberals who think that the president gave a stellar response. In reality, he merely showed us his true colors.
“First of all, the notion that I or Hillary or Democrats or whoever you want to choose are hell-bent on taking away folks’ guns is just not true,” he claims “And I don’t care how many times the NRA says it.” Obama then goes on to make the case for restricting gun ownership for people who find themselves on the no-fly list, and cites an example of someone who has been visiting ISIS websites but is still allowed to buy firearms.
So sir I just have to say respectfully, that there is a way for us to have common sense gun laws. There is a way for us to make sure that lawful responsible gun owners like yourself, are able to use them for sporting, hunting, protecting yourself. But the only way we’re going to do that is if we don’t have a situation in which anything that is proposed is viewed as some tyrannical destruction of the Second Amendment.
Unfortunately, his idea to restrict gun ownership for people on the no-fly list is exactly the kind of thing that could lead to the tyrannical destruction of the Second Amendment. In a perfect world it would be nice if we could keep guns away from terrorists, but restricting the gun rights of people who are on the no-fly list is anything but reasonable or “common sense.”
That’s because literally anyone can find themselves on the no-fly list. You don’t have to commit a crime and you don’t need to visit any suspicious websites. They can take away your right to travel freely without any due process whatsoever. At best, all the government needs to do is hear that you might have some sympathies for a terrorist organization, and you’ll be barred from being on a plane for life.
As Techdirt.com pointed out last year, more than a third of the people on the no-fly list have no known terrorist affiliations. If Obama’s plan were ever put in place, you could lose your right to bear arms over nothing more than a hunch or a rumor.
Leaks to the Intercept revealed that the “process” by which people are put on either the no fly list or the terrorist watch list basically involves hunches, and revelations from just a few months ago show that DHS still uses flim flam pseudo science to put people on the list based on hunches that the government laughably calls “predictive judgment,” but which experts have said has no scientific basis whatsoever.
If you want to understand how incredibly wrong this proposal is, you just need to replace “buy guns” with something else, like “the right to assemble” or “the right to use the internet.” It’s easy to say: “What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to use the internet?” But then you remember that these aren’t actual suspects — they’re just people put on a list by law enforcement with no thorough process, let alone due process to defend themselves or to get off the list. And, of course, being a “suspect” doesn’t mean you’re guilty. Innocent until proven guilty used to actually mean something.
And let’s not forget, that our government has a very broad definition of “terrorist,” and has in the past claimed that conservatives, libertarians, veterans, and Christians should be watched closely for their supposed terrorist potential (i.e., the groups that are most likely to own firearms).
Sorry Obama, but you’re a gun grabber plain and simple. At best, perhaps, you’re ignorant of what your proposal could do to our rights, and at worse you’re lying to the American people. You know exactly what a “no-buy list” would lead to. Furthermore, the fact that more guns were sold during your administration than any other in history does not prove that you’re not trying to take our guns, it’s only proof that you’ve failed to take them. You can sugarcoat your anti-Second Amendment vision, and claim that you just want to make us all a little safer, but we know what your ideas would do to our rights.

TN Note: How do you feel about the UN’s statement that “Global citizens need to fulfill the basic values of humanity. They need to be proactively involved in solving global issues”? Are you ready to trade your U.S. citizenship for global citizenship? Well, they want you, your family and your children to do so, and they will stop at nothing to force you to comply. Will you resist?
At the opening ceremony, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon highlighted that the contribution of NGOs, academia and youth will be key to achieving the SDGs, for without the participation of NGOs and civil society groups, no initiative, however visionary, can be fully achieved.
“I am such a strong believer in NGOs, I constantly call on governments to expand space for you to operate,” said the Secretary-General in his address to conference delegates. “Four days ago, at the Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity, I denounced shrinking democratic space and I urged freedom for civil society organizations and human rights defenders. Unfortunately, that freedom is under threat, including at the last place this should happen: at the United Nations. I call on Member States to stop constricting NGO engagement.”
In his address, Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea, Mr. Kyo-ahn Hwang reaffirmed the country’s commitment to fostering global citizenship.
“We worked very hard so that global citizenship was reflected in the SDGs,” said Prime Minister Hwang. “Global citizens need to fulfil the basic values of humanity. They need to be proactively involved in solving global issues.
This conference, under the theme of ‘Education for Global Citizenship: Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals Together’ will encourage people to become involved.”
The conference, held from 30 May to 1 June 2016, is being underpinned by three pillars: Formal Education; Informal Education and Training; and Advocacy and Public Information, which will be examined as a means to eliminate inequalities that create barriers to learning.
Over the next three days, the round table discussions, workshops and youth caucuses will focus on education as an entry point for implementing and achieving the SDGs, culminating in an action agenda for NGOs and academia, to concentrate efforts and catalyze successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
Cross cutting themes such as gender equality and climate change will be a strong focus, along with importance of learning from marginalized and vulnerable groups, including indigenous people and the LGBT community.
Co-Chairs of the conference, Dr. Scott Carlin, Associate Professor of Geography at Long Island University and Dr. YuKang Choi, NGO Representative to the United Nations for Dream Touch for All, highlighted that the conference is an important opportunity to raise awareness and mobilize civil society around the SDGs.
“The NGO/DPI Conference will bring the civil society voice to the United Nations, and foster NGO support for implementation of the 2030 Agenda,” said Dr. Carlin.
“This is the first time the conference is being hosted in Asia, providing an opportunity for NGOs in the region to tap into networks and enhance their ability to lobby governments for commitment to SDG implementation,” added Dr. Choi.
More than 2000 people were in attendance for the opening session. The conference is being organized in cooperation with the NGO/DPI Executive Committee, the Government of the Republic of Korea and the National Organizing Committee of Korea.
What they are really promoting is a Global Social Cancer, that plagiarizes the works of Satan. Eventually everyone will worship the New World Order except for those few who prefer death to slavery. I find it amazing how stupid and compliant humanity has already become. If real patriotism was as alive as it was in the beginning, there would be blood in the streets of D.C.

People need to end the Two party Corporate Fascist political fraud and the
Congress “In Trust” system
By Anna Von Reitz
- 1754-1776:The “United Colonies” take shape as a loose political association, and the First and Second Continental Congresses are the result.
- 1776:The Colonies declare independence.
- 1781:The Articles of Confederation bind “States” — political subdivisions of the United Colonies -– together in a “perpetual union”, creating a confederation of States to operate in the international Jurisdiction of the Sea. [Why a “confederation” instead of a “federation”? – Because the original States gave up some of their natural jurisdiction to the new political entity, the Union, they created.]
- 1783:The Treaty of Paris and Treaty of Versailles cements this arrangement splitting the land and sea jurisdictions between the States and the Federal Union and places King George III as Trustee of American interests on the “High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways” —which means he kept control of American international commerce. The new “Union” entity operating in the international Jurisdiction of the sea was always controlled by the British and it has always been the British Monarch’s responsibility as International Trustee to manage it and guarantee its proper operation. It has instead run amok for 150 years.
- 1787:The Supreme Perfected Republican Declaration of the United Colonies creates the National Trust owed the Continental United States.
- 1789:Two years later, “The Constitution for the united States of America” splits off the sea jurisdiction and creates the new Federal United States. A year later (1790) the Federal United States forms a commercial company doing business as the United States (Commercial Company) to provide the nineteen enumerated services agreed to by the subscribing States.
- 1812-1814:The British try to horn in again and are beaten back. This skirmish results in the Treaty of Ghent, where the British interests in American shipping and commerce are reaffirmed and lasting peace is promised in return.
- 1845:The British Monarch and Pope secretly agree to undermine the American System of government via the Treaty of Verona. The British Monarch breaches the Treaty of Ghent and both the Pope and the King secretly breach their trust as International Trustees. They set out on a covert action and issued Letters of Marque and Reprisal to the members of the Bar Associations, allowing them to act as Foreign Agents on American soil and as privateers free to plunder American commerce.
- 1860:Thanks to the efforts of the Bar Associations a member of the Bar, Abraham Lincoln, is elected to serve as President. Note that he is ineligible serve as President of the United States of America, by the Titles of Nobility Amendment to the actual Constitution— but is eligible to serve as President of the United States (Commercial Company). This is the same situation we have with Barack Obama who is ineligible to serve as President of the United States of America, but is able to serve as President of the United States (Incorporated).
- 1861:The Civil War begins. ‘Congress’ adjourns for lack of quorum and without a date to reconvene. Lincoln organizes a Delaware Corporation and the remaining members of Congress begin functioning as a Board of Directors.
- 1862:The “Corporate Congress”—a body of men no different than the Board of Directors of IBM, change the meaning of a single word —only and explicitly for use within their corporation. That word is “person”. From then on the word “person” is deemed to mean “corporation” for federal government purposes. (37th “Congress”– Second Session, Chapter 49, Section 68.)
- 1863: Lincoln signs the Lieber Code as Commander in Chief and puts the Union Army, the Grand Army of the Republic, in charge of the nation’s future and money supply. A day later, he bankrupts the original United States (Commercial Company).
- 1865:Lee’s Army surrenders to Grant and a general armistice is declared. The Southern States are in ruins and under military occupation by the Union. The original Northern States are bankrupt. Foreign banks are in control of the new “United States of America, Inc.” and the Union Army reigns supreme. Over the next two years President Andrew Johnson will three times publicly declare peace on the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States, but peace is never declared in the international Jurisdiction of the Sea controlled by the Federal United States under the trusteeship of the British Monarch.
- 1868:TheCorporate Congress writes itself a new Corporate Constitution, called “the Constitution of the United States of America” and palms off this look-alike, sound-alike private corporate document “as if” it were the actual Constitution. This is fraud on many levels. The Constitution of the United States of America purposefully sought to confuse and delude people into thinking it was the actual Equity Contract obligating the States to receive services and subrogate their international jurisdiction to the federal government.
- 1871:The Corporate Congressbegins to set up shop for itself by creating a separate government for the District of Columbia. The initial effort fails but seven years later the Washing ton DC Municipality is created as an independent international city state run as a plenary oligarchy by the members of “Congress”. Also in 1871, the Corporate Congress claimed to own all United States corporations – 41st “Congress”- Third Session, Chapters 62, 63, 64, and 65.
- 1874-1885:All the actual States on the land are reorganized and at the same time completely new “Federal States” are created and new “State Constitutions” are written for them. The original States on the land are renamed in this process. The original State of Ohio operating the land jurisdiction became the Ohio State, while the usurping “Federal State”— merely a corporate franchise of the United States of America, Inc. operating in the international Jurisdiction of the Sea—took over the name “State of Ohio”.
- 1900-1904:Still lusting after more power for itself, theCorporate Congress set up a second shop for itself and obtained permission to do it from the Supreme Court in a series of cases known as The Insular Tariff Cases. As with setting up the Washington DC Municipality as a foreign city-state on our shores and running it as their own little oligarchy, the “Congress” now took the “federal territories and possessions” and made a new “union” of “American states” – Puerto Rico, Guam, et alia -and began calling it “the United States of America (Minor)”. They just forgot to add the (Minor) part of the name from then on, and let people assume that all the repugnant laws they passed governing this “Constitutional Democracy” also applied to the Continental United States.
- 1912-1913:A private association of European and American banks calling themselves “The Federal Reserve” bought the governmental services corporation known as “The United States of America, Inc.” and its “State” franchises as a business venture, and began operating such familiar agencies as The United States Department of Agriculture and The United States Department of Transportation as private, for-profit businesses -without telling anyone. They exercised the “government powers” they didn’t really possess in a vast fraud scheme incollusion with members of “Congress” to institute a fiat monetary system and misused their position of trust to put competitors out of business, set up monopolies, rig commodity markets, and commit other acts of blatant self-interested criminality and fraud.
- 1917:Engaging in a war for profit,Congress and their Banker Bosses passed the War Powers Act and the Trading With the Enemy Act, and numerous other illegal and repugnant “Acts” pertaining only to the Federal United States and the international Jurisdiction of the Sea, but presented them to the public as if this claptrap pertained to the actual States and People on the land of the Continental United States. Deceived by this venal and purposeful fraud, millions of Americans complied with what they believed to be the “Law” passed by a legitimate Congress acting as deputies of the States and the People.
- 1918-1933:Once in control of the monetary system the “Federal Reserve” increased the monetary supply exponentially, causing the “Roaring Twenties”. They built the house of cards and on October 29, 1929, they collapsed it – deliberately. This enabled them to put thousands of competitors out of business, allowed them to buy commodities, land, and labor for dirt cheap, and to manipulate the value of the dollar to their benefit.
- 1933-1940:The banks took full advantage of the “national emergency” they created and theCongress did everything the bankers required: The Sheppard-Towner Act, the Buck Act, the Alien Registration Act, the Social Security Act(s), the Emergency Banking Act, and more. The purpose of all this was to lay claim to the labor and the assets of the States and People of the Continental United States by securing “private contracts” with them, enabling the perpetrators to “represent them” and to set up corporations “in their names”. Hundreds of millions of Americans were told that they “had to” sign up for Social Security and have a Social Security Number in order to have a job, that it was “the Law” and that “Congress had passed it” and so, believing it to be a lawful government mandate – when in fact it was a corporate fraud scheme – they were subscribed en mass. Remembering now the actions of the Corporate Congress in 1862 redefining the word “person” to mean “corporation” for federal purposes, and their later claim made in 1871 to hold ownership interest in all United States corporations and seeing that their actions from 1933 to 1940 resulted in redefining the estates of living Americans as public trusts—that is, as a form of corporation— you can see that the “Corporate Congress” has claimed to own living Americans as assets belonging to their corporation and has also claimed to control and own their private assets — in flagrant violation of the Geneva Convention Protocols Volume II, Article 3, and in equally flagrant violation of the 1926 International Conventions on Slavery, and in violation of every lawful and moral duty, commercial contract, and trust indenture owed to the Continental United States and the American People. It is also apparent that all of this – every claim, every salvage lien, every title to land and property held under color of law – being held against the Continental United States and the living civilian inhabitants of the Continental United States, is pure, self-interested commercial fraud created and perpetuated under conditions of semantic deceit, constructive fraud, misrepresentation, and mischaracterization by the management of the Federal United States, the various governmental services corporations doing business as some form of “United States” and the British Government.
- 1940-present:Among the first actions to be taken by the criminals was to “register” all live births. This established a claim of ownership on the baby and his or her estate, benefiting the “State of Ohio” or other “Federal State franchise”. This act of identity theft exercised via an undisclosed and forced contract with the Mother of the child, allowed each ”State” franchise to control the name and the property of the baby. The perpetrators promptly set up new “State franchises” benefiting themselves using names styled like this: “Joseph Quincy Public” and new “Municipal franchises” set up under the auspices of the Washington DC Municipality using NAMES styled like this: “JOHN QUINCY PUBLIC”. The only purpose for creating these franchises structured as various kinds of trusts – was to act as a means for the privately owned governmental services corporations to hypothecate debt against the labor of the living people and their private property assets and to exercise control over them amounting to slavery.

The Destruction of the constitution
By Anna Von Reitz
RE: Question about Federal Districts and claims that a federal military junta took over the Republic and the states during the Whiskey Rebellion.
As part of the settlement following the Revolutionary War, King George III was given control of American affairs in international commerce (not trade–commerce) on the High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways.
The actual Constitution further refined the details.
The federal government was given control of certain activities and functions, including the regulation of certain “controlled substances”—– firearms, tobacco, and fireworks— as a source of income and to provide for a uniform policy regarding these potentially dangerous substances. The creation of the Federal Districts overlying the borders of the states marked the creation of administrative units to perform this function.
The truth of the matter is that no American is restricted in their ability to produce any substance—-for example, we can make wine, beer, gin, or any other alcoholic beverage to our hearts delight, so long as we don’t sell or distribute it for profit or transport it across state lines.
Much of the confusion about this is that Americans have been routinely misidentified and mischaracterized as United States Citizens and held accountable to the foreign statutory law of the Federal Corporation and their “federated” States of States franchises and “County of……” franchises.
We’re not naturally “United States Citizens” of any kind and the federal corporation is grossly trespassing upon our private property when it claims otherwise, but it remains our role to object to such presumptions and to uphold our separate nation and identity.
Thus, many Americans engaged in otherwise lawful activities— growing hemp, for example, have been arrested and charged and imprisoned under “federal law” prohibiting such activities and claiming that hemp is a controlled substance, even though it is not a controlled substance for any American to grow or possess hemp in any American state. These arrests are taking place and charges brought and sentences executed under the presumption that the victims are “citizens of the United States” because the victims have not objected on the record of the courts and claimed their identity as American State Nationals.
Do you see? Hemp is a controlled substance for United States Citizens and “citizens of the United States” but not for American State Nationals. The only control over any substance for us is the obligation not to horn in on the federal regulation hegemony on the international/interstate manufacture and sale and transport of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. Congress has no ability (and no authority) it create any new for-profit regulatory role for itself so far as we are concerned.
And as for the “Federal Districts”— that’s just their internal organizational map, designed for them to carry out their duties and functions. It’s actually a good thing for people to be able to see that there is a separate entity there, especially since the line between the actual States and the incorporated “States of State” franchises has been blurred by the incorporation of state and county governmental services functions in recent years.
The Washington State is not the same thing as the State of Washington (a foreign municipal franchise corporation), and just because you live in the United States (Continental United States) does not mean that you are a United States Citzen (Federal United States).
And just because hemp is a “federally controlled substance” for United States Citizens, be aware that the only “federally controlled substances” so far as American State Nationals are concerned are alcohol, tobacco, and firearms— and then only with regard to their manufacture and sale for profit, and transport across state lines.

ANYONE WHO DID NOT STAND AGGRESSIVELY AGAINST THIS LEGISLATION LACKS SUFFICIENT CHARACTER TO REPRESENT THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS AND FIND OUT HOW THEY OPPOSED THIS MADNESS – A VERBAL “I DON’T SUPPORT THIS” ISN’T ENOUGH. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU DID TO OPPOSE IT. MB

The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.

The most dangerous, and underreported, part of Obama’s transgender edict
May 20, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) â€“ For all the justifiable press coverage of Barack Obama’s federal guidance on transgender students in the public schools, its most dangerous provision has largely gone unnoticed — and it has nothing to do with bathrooms.
The most outrageous provision of his transgender bathroom order does not even involve locker rooms, where teenagers of the opposite sex will change and shower next to one another.
The most offensive part of the new policy is that, under the Obama administration’s federal guidance:
Â· School districts must allow biological males and females to spend the night together in the same hotel room on field trips;
Â· Colleges must let men who say they are transgender be roommates with one or more women; and
Â· School officials cannot even tell those young women or their parents in advance that their new roommate is a man, without risking a federal lawsuit.
The plain wording of the Obama administration’s diktat is clear enough, yet it has not been reported, even by conservative news outlets.
Republicans get it wrong, again
Since the Obama administration announced the federal guidance last Friday, several Republican elected officials have said that its definition of a “transgender” person is vague or ill-defined. That’s absolutely wrong.
The eight-page letter clearly states that, as far as the Justice Department and the Dept. of Education are concerned, a student becomes a member of the opposite sex the moment he feels like it. The instant he tells school officials about his decision, they must immediately treat him accordingly.
“When a student or the student’s parent or guardian, as appropriate, notifies the school administration that the student will assert a gender identity that differs from previous representations or records, the school will begin treating the student consistent with the student’s gender identity,” the letter says.
That’s it. The student doesn’t have to meet any other conditions to change his sex — in fact, school districts are prohibited from setting any. “Under [the Obama administration’s unilateral rewriting of] Title IX, there is no medical diagnosis or treatment requirement that students must meet as a prerequisite to being treated consistent with their gender identity,” the letter says.
That clarifies — mandates, really — that a student doesn’t have to have surgery, take hormone treatments, or present himself in any way as a member of the opposite sex. He can continue looking and acting as a male but say he identifies as a female. After all, that’s sort of what “gender non-conforming” is all about.
Just as there is no minimum threshold required to qualify as transgender, there is no maximum limit to the number of times a student can change genders. “For some people, gender is not just about being male or female,” CNN reported. “In fact, how one identifies can change every day or even every few hours.” So, theoretically, one could be male during homeroom, female during gym class, then male again before he gets on the bus â€“ and the school district is bound to comply every step of the way.
Fighting to let a boy spend the night with your daughter
Tucked away in the letter is a section requiring schools to provide transgender students proper â€œhousing.â€
“A school must allow transgender students to access housing consistent with their gender identity,” it states, “and may not require transgender students to stay in single-occupancy accommodations or to disclose personal information when not required of other students.”
The administration’s 25-page booklet of proposed policies approvingly cites a local Colorado school district, which says teachers must embrace “the goals of maximizing the [transgender] student’s social integration and equal opportunity to participate in overnight activity and athletic trips, ensuring the [transgender] student’s safety and comfort, and minimizing stigmatization of the [again, transgender] student.”
The president’s adopted hometown of Chicago is more insistent: “In no case should a transgender student be denied the right to participate in an overnight field trip because of the student’s transgender status.”
So, any individual who says he is a member of the opposite sex must be allowed to spend the night in the same room as members of the opposite biological sex for his “social integration” and “comfort.”
Suppose a teenage boy discovers he is “transgender” just in time to spend the night in his girlfriend’s hotel room? Or the hotel room of a girl who is decidedly not his girlfriend? He must be allowed to do so without a chaperone, unless there’s an adult in every room. Don’t forget, under civil rights law, there can be no disparate treatment. If transgender students are chaperoned but “other” girls aren’t, that’s profiling and could trigger a federal civil rights lawsuit from the social justice warriors in the Obama administration or its like-minded successors.
Obama’s already acted to establish unisex bedrooms on field trips
This isn’t mere speculation. Three years ago, the Obama administration sided with a transgender female after California’s Arcadia Unified School District refused to let her “bunk with [her] buddies” on a seventh grade overnight field trip.
The Obama administration forced a settlement on the school district, which agreed to the teenager’s requests for hotel rooms during â€œovernight events and extracurricular activities on and off campus, consistent with [her] gender identity.â€
Obama is now taking this nationwide.
School officials cannot alert the girls’ parents that a biological male will be sleeping in their room because, under guidelines quoted by the Obama administration, they can’t even tell the boy’s parents. “School personnel should speak with the student first before discussing a student’s gender nonconformity or transgender status with the student’s parent or guardian,” it says.
The Arcadia settlement — again, dictated by the Obama administration — says the child’s birth sex must be “treated as confidential” by school officials and cannot be disclosed without “express written consent.”
So, your daughter may not know she will be spending the night with a boy until she gets to her hotel room.
Unthinkable as this would be, it hardly scratches the surface. After all, this guidance doesn’t just apply to high schools.
Welcome to college! Meet your new roommate
The administration makes clear, “In this letter, the term schools refers to recipients of [f]ederal financial assistance at all educational levels, including school districts, colleges, and universities.”
To drive the point home, Secretary of Education John B. King Jr. said in a press release accompanying the letter, “No student should ever have to go through the experience of feeling unwelcome at school or on a college campus.”(Emphasis added.)
How would a college apply the Obama administration’s demand to furnish a transgender student “housing”that conforms to his “gender identity” so that he does not feel “unwelcome”in its dorm rooms?
As demonstrated, the Obama administration’s guidance makes gender dependent on the student’s assertion and nothing else; it requires students to be housed with members of the sex with which they identify. The letter states that the college cannot tell other students about a transgender student’s biology. â€œNonconsensual disclosure of…a student’s birth name or sex assigned at birth, could be harmful to or invade the privacy of transgender students, and Obama warns it could be against the law in the letter.
Some people would argue that not telling a gifted 16-year-old college freshman that her new roommate is a bearded 51-year-old with male pattern baldness and a taste for young ladies violates her privacy.
But according to the booklet, even the potential roommate cannot ask about a transgender person’s biology, because “asking personal questions about a person’s body”is a form of harassment.
Thus, under the Obama administration’s policies, a man can declare himself a female and be assigned as the year-long roommate of a nubile, possibly underage, co-ed. If the college tells the young lady her roommate is a biological male without his express consent, it could be sued.
And if the young lady objects, she is guilty of stigmatizing and possibly “harassing”the poor man and should probably be sent to sensitivity training — which she can schedule between her therapy sessions to deal with her sexual assault.
All of this is being forced on the nation without one legislator voting to authorize it, or even a public debate to consult the views of the benighted American people. Obama’s spokesman, Josh Earnest, insists these policies are being implemented to assure that schools and universities are as “respectful and safe as they can possibly be.” And you can get on board or get sued.
The fact that nothing in Obama’s federal guidance forecloses the possibility that a biological woman will become the unwitting, unwilling roommate of a heterosexual biological male – overnight or possibly much longer – tells us how far the president is willing to go to enforce his radical ideology, and how little concern Barack Obama has for anyone who does not share it.

- 1917: Engaging in a war for profit, Congress and their Banker Bosses passed the War Powers Act and the Trading With the Enemy Act, and numerous other illegal and repugnant “Acts” pertaining only to the Federal United States and the international Jurisdiction of the Sea, but presented them to the public as if this claptrap pertained to the actual States and People on the land of the Continental United States. Deceived by this venal and purposeful fraud, millions of Americans complied with what they believed to be the “Law” passed by a legitimate Congress acting as deputies of the States and the People.
- 1918-1933: Once in control of the monetary system the “Federal Reserve” increased the monetary supply exponentially, causing the “Roaring Twenties”. They built the house of cards and on October 29, 1929, they collapsed it – deliberately. This enabled them to put thousands of competitors out of business, allowed them to buy commodities, land, and labor for dirt cheap, and to manipulate the value of the dollar to their benefit.
- 1933-1940: The banks took full advantage of the “national emergency” they created and the Congress did everything the bankers required: The Sheppard-Towner Act, the Buck Act, the Alien Registration Act, the Social Security Act(s), the Emergency Banking Act, and more. The purpose of all this was to lay claim to the labor and the assets of the States and People of the Continental United States by securing “private contracts” with them, enabling the perpetrators to “represent them” and to set up corporations “in their names”. Hundreds of millions of Americans were told that they “had to” sign up for Social Security and have a Social Security Number in order to have a job, that it was “the Law” and that “Congress had passed it” and so, believing it to be a lawful government mandate – when in fact it was a corporate fraud scheme – they were subscribed en mass. Remembering now the actions of the Corporate Congress in 1862 redefining the word “person” to mean “corporation” for federal purposes, and their later claim made in 1871 to hold ownership interest in all United States corporations and seeing that their actions from 1933 to 1940 resulted in redefining the estates of living Americans as public trusts—that is, as a form of corporation— you can see that the “Corporate Congress” has claimed to own living Americans as assets belonging to their corporation and has also claimed to control and own their private assets — in flagrant violation of the Geneva Convention Protocols Volume II, Article 3, and in equally flagrant violation of the 1926 International Conventions on Slavery, and in violation of every lawful and moral duty, commercial contract, and trust indenture owed to the Continental United States and the American People. It is also apparent that all of this – every claim, every salvage lien, every title to land and property held under color of law – being held against the Continental United States and the living civilian inhabitants of the Continental United States, is pure, self-interested commercial fraud created and perpetuated under conditions of semantic deceit, constructive fraud, misrepresentation, and mischaracterization by the management of the Federal United States, the various governmental services corporations doing business as some form of “United States” and the British Government.
- 1940-present: Among the first actions to be taken by the criminals was to “register” all live births. This established a claim of ownership on the baby and his or her estate, benefiting the “State of Ohio” or other “Federal State franchise”. This act of identity theft exercised via an undisclosed and forced contract with the Mother of the child, allowed each ”State” franchise to control the name and the property of the baby. The perpetrators promptly set up new “State franchises” benefiting themselves using names styled like this: “Joseph Quincy Public” and new “Municipal franchises” set up under the auspices of the Washington DC Municipality using NAMES styled like this: “JOHN QUINCY PUBLIC”. The only purpose for creating these franchises structured as various kinds of trusts – was to act as a means for the privately owned governmental services corporations to hypothecate debt against the labor of the living people and their private property assets and to exercise control over them amounting to slavery.

Declaration Of Law by Judge Anna von Reitz
by David Robinson
The instigators kidnapped and press-ganged the people and the land assets of the Continental United States by force, fraud, and deceit into the foreign international Jurisdiction of the Sea. Our own employees did this while taking a paycheck from our hand.
They cannot claim that they were “at war” with us. They were merely criminals committing fraud against their benefactors and employers. The members of “Congress” stand notified that they do not represent the Continental United States nor the People of the Continental United States.
They have not occupied their lawful public office and have acted instead to occupy private “similarly named” corporate offices at both the “federal” and the “state” levels. They have no public capacity whatsoever and no valid contract obligating any American State Citizen to obey any law, code, treaty, regulation or other legislation promoted as an “Act” of “Congress” in while failing to occupy public office and failing to act as responsible fiduciary officers.
The members of “Congress” stand further notified that they and the corporations they represent have no Lawful contract with any individual American State Citizen born on the land of the Continental United States and that all claims, liens, titles and presumptions against the living people and their assets on the land stand null and void ab initio for fraud, all the way back to April of 1862.
The members of “Congress” stand further notified that as presently constituted and operating, they have no public authority related to the Continental United States and exercise only the power any corporate entity has, so long as it acts lawfully and within its charter-which is to say, the authority to organize their actual employees, set standards for behavior within their own corporation, and perform the functions stipulated by their charters and law-abiding commercial contracts.
The Governors of the Federal “State” franchises are similarly notified and placed under Public Lien, required to release all color of law titles and liens registered under conditions of fraud against Continental United States assets.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff stand notified that they are obligated under the Geneva Convention Protocols of 1949 as well as The Constitution for the united States of America to come to the aid and assistance of the civilian populace of the Continental United States and to protect the civilian population and its assets at all costs and to prosecute those who have willingly violated Volume II, Article 3, of the Geneva Convention Protocols seeking to change the birthright citizenship and nationality of American State Citizens of the Continental United States by fraud, force, and coercion.
The Joint Chiefs are also under obligation to return all civilian property unharmed and unencumbered to the rightful civilian owners, to remove all color of law titles and false liens against the labor and other private property assets of American State Citizens rightfully belonging to the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States.
The Joint Chiefs are fully and hereby notified that no commercial corporation on earth has the lawful ability to declare war and that the actions engaged in by the “Congress” and the “President” are merely the actions of a private corporation engaged in police actions and mercenary activities that must be closely scrutinized for conformance to international military law and with due respect for the actual Constitution for the united States of America and the citizenry of the Continental United States.
President Barack Obama is hereby given Notice that he is merely an executive officer of a private, mostly foreign-owned for-profit governmental services corporation, not a Head of State, not eligible to represent the people of the Continental United States, and not empowered to obligate them to any military action or commercial contract. Any attempt on the part of Barack Obama or members of “Congress” to attack American State Citizens using commercial mercenary forces (NHS, BATF, NSA, FEMA, CIA, DIA, IRS, etc.) is to be immediately countered with arrest of those responsible.
The Secretary of the Treasury and the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE are under Public Lien and demand to unblock all civilian public trust accounts and make available the entire balance of the National Credit (an amount equal to the National Debt, plus principle and interest) for the use and investment of individual Americans without constraint, excuse, or further obfuscation.
This Public Declaration establishes irrevocable lien upon the assets of the United States Treasury and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and all subsidiaries and successors of the former Federal Reserve System and upon all Federal State franchises.
The Secretary General and General Secretary of the United Nations are both Notified and Given Fair Warning and Notice that the FEDERAL RESERVE and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, two corporations recently organized under the auspices of the United Nations City State by the UNITED NATIONS, INC. are already in Breach of their Charters and acting as criminal syndicates on the shores of the Continental United States, willfully seeking to defraud the living inhabitants of these peaceful States, and to exercise unlawful control over the citizenry and their assets.
The North American Water and Power Alliance is under Public Lien and is herein identified as the recipient of purloined credit owed to the Continental United States and the Citizenry thereof, due and owing, and is under demand to unblock all individual Capital Credit accounts for the use of the American State Citizens who have been systematically defrauded and indebted resulting in the establishment of these credit accounts in their “NAMES” but retained in the control of local utility companies and the NAWP.
All fraudulent convertible debt resulting from the semantic deceits and misuse of deceptively similar names applied to people and legal fiction entities is recognized as embezzlement of credit, willful identity theft, inland piracy, currency manipulation, obstruction of bankruptcy, and as unlawful restraint of trade accomplished by personage and enforced by barratry by the perpetrators of these schemes whether foreign or domestic.
The Continental United States retains the right to prosecute claims against any and all legal fiction entities and living people responsible, the right to void all contracts in default, all titles held under color of law, all actions undertaken under conditions of semantic deceit or constructive fraud, all self-interested claims of “foreign immunity”, all restraint of trade or Natural rights owed the citizenry of the Continental United States, and all encroachment on its jurisdiction.

We’ve been waiting a long time for this. 5,368 days to be exact.
It has been 14 years, 8 months, and 12 days since the Neocon Zionist monsters in the United States along with their partners in the crime, the Saudis and Israeli Mossad orchestrated the 9/11 false flag operation that murdered nearly 3,000 innocents. Just a few smoking guns of their heinous crimes include the free fall collapse of world trade center building 7, the statistical impossibility of the BBC reporting about it 25 minutes too early and Lucky Larry’s multi-billion dollar insurance payout for “acts of terror.”
The litany of evidence of the NWO’s dastardly deeds on 9/11 has been documented, catalogued and readied for trials. The true culprits have been identified. And if you want the exact names and details there is no better video to watch than this one: 9/11 Conspiracy Solved: Names, Connections and Details Exposed
What remains is for these evil men to be brought to justice and tried for their crimes against American law, the Constitution and humanity. We have long hoped that the day would come when these sinister evil doers would start turning on each other and the truth would begin spilling out.
Enter the 28 pages and the Saudis. Reportedly, the classified 28 pages of the 9/11 report implicate the Saudis for at least helping to fund the terror attacks, but those 28 pages conveniently make no mention of Israeli involvement in the planning and execution of the attacks that day. The dancing Mossad agents who were arrested, sent back to Israel after ten weeks and who then admitted on Israeli TV, “We were there to document the event“.
No mention of them.
The decision has been made to throw the Saudis under the bus for the event that has up to this point, been blamed solely on Muslims. But the official 9/11 fable is now in the process of collapsing like a house of cards, and that house of cards is now coming down as fast as WTC-7.
In my interview with Harley Schlanger on May 20th we discussed this in some detail. I told Harley, “all of this is being orchestrated to throw Saudi Arabia under the bus, whilst never mentioning Israel.” Harley’s response could not have been more prescient.
“There’s an element to this, when you throw somebody under the bus, you always face the possibility that they’ll come out and tell the truth.” [You can listen to it at 4 minutes and 28 seconds into the interview.]
The 9/11 truth research community has the goods on these people. We KNOW what really happened and who is really responsible. But what we have needed is for these rats to turn on each other on a global stage.
And today it began.
The Saudis have just dropped the biggest truth bomb since Putin exposed the Pentagon’s bogus war on Isis in Syria.
Breitbart reported today:
Saudi Press: U.S. Blew Up World Trade Center To Create ‘War On Terror
The Saudi press is still furious over the U.S. Senate’s unanimous vote approving a bill that allows the families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. This time, the London-based Al-Hayatdaily has claimed that the U.S. planned the attacks on the World Trade Center in order to create a global war on terror.
The article, written by Saudi legal expert Katib al-Shammari and translated by MEMRI, claims that American threats to expose documents that prove Saudi involvement in the attacks are part of a long-standing U.S. policy that he calls “victory by means of archives.”
Al-Shammari claims that the U.S. chooses to keep some cards close to its chest in order to use them at a later date. One example is choosing not to invade Iraq in the 1990s and keeping its leader, Saddam Hussein, alive to use as “a bargaining chip” against other Gulf States. Only once Shi’ism threatened to sweep the region did America act to get rid of Hussein “since they no longer saw him as an ace up their sleeve.”
He claims that the 9/11 attacks were another such card, enabling the U.S. to blame whoever suited its needs at a particular time; first it blamed Al-Qaeda and the Taliban, then Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq, and now Saudi Arabia.
September 11 is one of winning cards in the American archives, because all the wise people in the world who are experts on American policy and who analyze the images and the videos [of 9/11] agree unanimously that what happened in the [Twin] Towers was a purely American action, planned and carried out within the U.S. Proof of this is the sequence of continuous explosions that dramatically ripped through both buildings. … Expert structural engineers demolished them with explosives, while the planes crashing [into them] only gave the green light for the detonation – they were not the reason for the collapse. But the U.S. still spreads blame in all directions.
The intention of the attacks, writes al-Shammari in his conspiracy article, was to create “an obscure enemy – terrorism – which became what American presidents blamed for all their mistakes” and that would provide justification for any “dirty operation” in other countries.
I still cannot believe that some Americans are stupid enough to insist our government had nothing to do with this travesty. Those po folks need a good ass whup’n

We left off our previous discussion with the 12 people who met in Annapolis Maryland in September of 1786. We learned that of the twelve, John Dickinson, a man who refused to sign the Declaration of Independence and supported England in the Revolutionary War was elected Chairman of that group unanimously. It also should be noted that John Dickinson drafted the Articles of Confederation in 1776, was a delegate to the Convention of 1787, but had a proxy sign the constitution in his stead.
We learned this convention had been called after the Congress found no interest in amending the Articles of Confederation as requested by Alexander Hamilton and it was apparent these twelve representatives wished to circumvent the Congress in their desire to “strengthen” the government and give it more “energy.”
History reveals that when men seek to strengthen and energize government, they do so believing such actions will benefit them directly and seldom if ever benefit those being governed.
Most interesting is that two delegates to the Annapolis Convention; Hamilton and Madison, would, along with John Jay, assume the title of Federalists when in truth their designs for a future government were anything but federal and were strongly nationalist or monarchical. Their presentations for a new form of government in the Convention of 1787 are proof positive.
Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay wrote the Federalist Papers which are revered today by many. The problem is: these essays were simply an ad campaign or a marketing strategy to convince the people to accept the new constitution absent a Bill of Rights. Look at what the Federalist trio actually did, not what they said or wrote. The Federalist Papers were not read widely in other states before the Constitution was ratified.
When the nationalists/monarchists, masquerading as Federalists, left Annapolis in September of 1786, their goal was to completely overhaul the ruling documents and create a more centralized form of government while scrapping the restrictive Articles of Confederation. But, they knew presenting their plan as such would not gather the support they needed to secure delegates to a convention they intended to control.
The delegates to the Annapolis Convention were able to convince Congress that the Articles of Confederation were deficient and needed a convention of states to recommend amendments. These delegates were fully aware that in order to get a majority of people to vote contrary to their own interests, coercion of some form was absolutely necessary and the means of coercion were not to be found in the Articles. What occurred with the scrapping of the Articles of Confederation and the introduction of the Constitution was a counter-revolution to our War for Independence. The new Constitution provided a strong nationalist document with unlimited taxing powers. Not significantly different from the form of government the colonists had endured under King George III.
Historian Sheldon Richmond* said this relating to what the presentation of the Constitution as opposed to amending the Articles of Confederation actually accomplished.
“…it was a counter-revolution, in many ways a reversal of the radical achievement represented by America’s break with the British empire. The constitutional counter-revolution was the work not of radicals, but of conservatives who sought, in the words of Robert Morris, the ambitious nationalist Superintendent of Finance under the Articles of Confederation, a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.”
Like politicians of all ages in history, the nationalists/monarchists knew that to accomplish their goals, subterfuge was required. (Wait until we pass it, then we can see what is in it) Therefore, the rallying call for the Philadelphia Convention in May of 1787 was formed on the idea of “amending” the Articles of Confederation.
Notwithstanding the rhetoric of the nationalists/monarchist’s concerns of the weakness and inability to deal with issues of commerce and trade, when boiled down to the lowest common denominator, the real issue they had with the Articles was a lack of ability to coerce the populace to accommodate their political agenda. This excerpt from a letter from George Washington to John Jay in August of 1786 well illustrates my contention.
“We have probably had too good an opinion of human nature in forming our confederation. Experience has taught us, that men will not adopt and carry into execution measures the best calculated for their own good without the intervention of a coercive power.
Many are of the opinion, that Congress have too frequently made use of the suppliant, humble tone of requisition in applications to the States when they had a right to assert their imperial dignity and command obedience.”
The implication found in this short passage reveals the nationalists/monarchists belief the leaders of this new country had the “right to assert their imperial dignity” and to “command obedience” from the people. Not much different in structure and idealism from the words pouring forth from the political leaders of today.
The State of North Carolina is now fighting an edict from the central government to allow perverts in the restrooms and showers of their state while a federal judge this week issued a ruling requiring the State of Kansas to grant voting rights to people who cannot prove their citizenship; A perfect example of the central government “commanding obedience” from the states.
It is important to know that the Congress of the State of Massachusetts when initially asked to provide delegates to a convention that would strengthen the Articles of Confederation responded thusly:
“More power in Congress has been the cry from all quarters, but especially of those whose views, not being confined to a government that will best promote the happiness of the people, are extended to one that will afford lucrative employment, civil and military. Such a government is an aristocracy which would require a standing army and a numerous train of pensioners to prop and support its exalted administration.”
The nationalists/monarchists, posing as Federalists, must have been incensed at those words. John Jay wrote to George Washington:
“Private rage for property suppresses public considerations, and personal rather than national interests have become the great objects of attention.”
Is this not the identical argument that is now centered around events such as the attacks by the BLM and the USFS on private property rights? Are we not continually forced to accept the loss of rights and property for the “national interests?” The “private rage for property” rights recently landed several members of the Bundy family and journalist Pete Santilli in jail, the Hammonds in prison and LaVoy Finicum in his grave.
James Madison urged George Washington to allow his name [Washington] to appear on the list of delegates to the Constitutional Convention even though Washington had expressed his doubts about attending due to a prior commitment to the Order of the Cincinnatus. Madison would submit his proposal, known as the Virginia Plan, to Washington by mail in April of 1787 along with a letter which contained the following phrase:
“…the right of coercion should be expressly declared.”
Madison knew that Washington’s name as a delegate would create the much-needed confidence in the people for the upcoming convention. Washington did eventually attend the convention.
The fact Madison had written and eventually transmitted to Washington and others his plan for a new form of government before the convention began could certainly be considered prima facie evidence the nationalists/monarchists intended from the beginning to scrap the Articles of Confederation for a more centralized, nationalistic (read coercive) form of government.
The majority of the 74 delegates initially selected by their state legislators to attend the 1787 convention believed they were to travel to Philadelphia to “amend the Articles of Confederation.”
It should be noted the convention did not begin on time and it was the 25th of May before a quorum of states was seated; 19 of the selected delegates never attended a single session; New Hampshire’s delegation was two months late in arriving.
Conspicuously missing from the delegates who were in attendance when the convention began were several among those we refer to as “founding fathers.” Thomas Jefferson was in France; John Adams was in England; Thomas Paine, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock do not appear to have been invited while Patrick Henry, who was selected, chose not to attend, stated he, “smelt a rat in Philadelphia, tending toward the Monarchy.” What an astute, prescient statement by Patrick Henry!
Henry, who had been greeted with the chant “treason” from those in attendance when he presented his objections to the Stamp Act in the Virginia House of Burgesses while comparing King George III to Julius Caesar and Charles I, was now challenging Madison, Hamilton, and Jay who wanted to reestablish a monarchical form of government on the ashes of the Articles of Confederation and nullify the long bloody war for independence.
When it comes to the quest for Liberty, it should be noted that Nationalist Benjamin Rush from Pennsylvania, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, a member of the Pennsylvania Ratification Convention and the father of American psychiatry, diagnosed the passion for liberty as a form of mental illness. He wrote,
“The extensive influence which these opinions [excited by the excess passion for liberty] had upon the understandings, passions, and morals of many of the citizens of the United States constituted a species of insanity which I shall take the liberty of distinguishing by the name of Anarchia.”
Benjamin Rush, in order to counteract this “species of insanity,” induced by a love of liberty, taught his pupils they were, “public property.” Noted by political activist David Barton as “The Father of Public Schools Under the Constitution” Rush had this to say about the children of the founding era,
“Let our pupil be taught that he does not belong to himself, but that he is public property. Let him be taught to love his family, but let him be taught at the same time that he must forsake and even forget them when the welfare of his country requires it.”
All this from the man David Barton presents as a devout Christian in his writings and DVD series.

Can you feel it? Can you feel the chains encircling the world as you know it, causing it to shrink into a passing wisp of memory as we drift closer and closer each day into a homogeneous goo of anonymity in which nothing is wrong and nothing is right unless we are told it is by the state, and anything goes except for what is honest and true and valid?
We are instructed in the ways in which we must act, react and recover. State-approved responses in a state-generated manual. And we comply. We comply because that is what we have been taught all of our lives. We know no differently. The ones who remembered and shared their stories are long past gone, and we do not mourn their loss. We are the new generation of enlightened, politically correct citizens of corporate USA. Why? Because that is simply what it is.
We have a set of laws; an instruction manual. Statute and Code. We are expected to know them. ‘Ignorance of the law is no excuse.’ Yet, it is impossible to know each and every regulation within the law, and therefore, impossible to know if/when, at any given moment we are in violation. Especially when the rules change. Even the ones that you thought you knew yesterday are different today. So there you are. Wanting to be an obedient citizen, and because you do not know the unknowable, that does not relieve you of the responsibility to do so. That is your job. Your duty towards the corporate state.
And if you are in, you are in. No turning back. Once the gates close, you, my friend, are property of the state. Owned. Your life lies firmly in the hands of those put in place to ensure conformity to the rules. When the whistle blows, you hop to. When the sergeant barks a command, you run to obey. If you are called to place yourself in the line of fire, you do not hesitate.
And if something goes horribly wrong? It is your responsibility. Did you follow the rules? Every last one? Did they change while you were catching that round? Deep down, you know how this goes. You are on the bottom of the priority list. If someone is going to go down for any acts in violation of the rules it is going to be you. That’s a given. Unless you claw your way up the chain of command into a position of authority over another. Then guess who gets the short end of the stick? Pitted against each other like a cock fight. May the best man win. The culling of the herd.
You eat when told, bath when told, sleep when told, and give your life when told. Dissent is punishable by immediate banishment. Out in the cold you go, devoid of a base on which to stand. The ground ripped out from under you.
So you need a network of trust to keep from being chewed alive and spit out like last night’s chaw. And you march together to the beat of a silent, but deep bond of survival. Survival in a system that churns and burns toy soldiers all saluting in a row.
There is a thin line that keeps you balanced between what you’ve been told is real and what is real, commonly referred to as sanity. And you hold on for dear life because that is all you know how to do.
You survive while the world around you crashes into a state of chaos. You reach out desperately to grasp hold of anything that you can to stay afloat. And you find that the only thing remaining constant is truth.
When all is said and done; when all the control games have been played; when all those ‘in charge’ have been exposed for what they truly are and the only thing left is a wet spot where they once cowered in fear, what remains is the truth. The last man standing. Then another. And another. Until a bond is formed that cannot be broken. A bond that will dissolve the fetters of enslavement. A bond that will truly set us free is the only way out of the maze of confusion, doubt and tyranny of ignorance.

In Paris last December, representatives of 196 nations participated in the Conference of the Parties 21 (COP21), the annual gathering convened by the United Nations for the past 21 years. The delegates expressed unanimous agreement about the need for a comprehensive accord to deal with their highly questionable claims about rapidly rising temperatures threatening the Earth and all of mankind.
Four months later, leaders of 175 countries met at UN headquarters in New York, where they signed the accord reached in Paris. Secretary of State John Kerry participated and signed the agreement on behalf of the United States. Even though this agreement is actually a treaty that should be submitted to the U.S. Senate for ratification, the UN negotiators, knowing full well the political reality that the Senate as presently constituted would not ratify, maintain that it is “binding,” while not subject to Senate ratification. Therefore, President Obama will have to implement the Paris agreement via executive orders and EPA regulations.
The delegates at this UN meeting committed their countries to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by a minimum of approximately 25 percent from 2005 levels, and to accomplish such a goal by the year 2025. One profoundly important fact never addressed is that their targeted enemy, carbon dioxide, is correctly known to be the “gas of life.” Plants ingest carbon dioxide, and without this gaseous substance, plants would not even exist.
In the face of all the condemnations of carbon dioxide, there are numerous highly placed and credible individuals who openly claim that the real goal of this decades-long campaign has far less to do with environmentalism and much more to do with gaining control of mankind through a UN super government. For instance, while she was serving the UN as its designated climate chief, Costa Rica’s Christiana Figueres openly stated on February 3, 2015: “[W]e are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years….”
Prior to the dangerous nonsense coming from Ms. Figueres, world government promoters at the influential Club of Rome likewise condemned the capitalist system. As far back as 1991, the globalists in this club admitted that they were “searching for a new enemy that would unite us.” They decided that “the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.” As reported by The New American‘s Alex Newman, the Club of Rome’s 1991 report entitled The First Global Revolution concluded that the dangers facing us “are caused by human intervention…. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.” Reducing the world’s population then became the goal of many.
A more explicit conclusion than the Club of Rome’s offering came from famed oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. His explicit claim of the need to depopulate the earth appeared in an interview [English edition] in the November 1991 UNESCO Courier published in France. The seemingly kind and lovable Frenchman said:
The damage people cause to the planet is a function of demographics – it is equal to the degree of development. [The single country] America burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladeshes…. This is a terrible thing to say. In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.
Cousteau’s desire to “eliminate” most of humanity drew little notice from the unreliable world media, but it is a major goal of many who promote the global warming scare. Who opposes this dangerous cabal and its designs? One prominent voice seeking to set the record straight is 60-year veteran meteorologist and founder of TV’s Weather Channel John Coleman. Calling the claim that mankind is causing global warming “the greatest scam in history,” he pointed to the goals of Ms. Figueres and to the welcome conclusion reached by Dr. Ottmar Edenhofer, who rightly noted that the UN’s policy is “to redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, remains a staunch opponent of these environmental claims. He will stand in the way of moves to have the Senate approve the Paris accord. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) labeled the pact “unattainable” and will also oppose its approval. Calls to their offices to thank them are certainly in order.
As the end of the Obama era looms, the soon-to-be ex-president will push hard to implement the Paris accord as part of his legacy. As mentioned above, since the Senate won’t ratify it as a treaty, he’ll seek to implement its provisions through executive orders and regulations. Congress has the to power to stop much or all of this. There is a need, therefore, for generating resistance.
Please call the offices of your two senators (202-224-3121) and your representative (202-225-3121) to help stave off this extremely dangerous drive by the Obama administration to use the UN’s Paris Climate Deal to control population, destroy jobs, and bring about world government under the United Nations.
Please also email your senators and representative with the same message.
Ultimately, the end goal of all who cherish freedom will require complete withdrawal from the United Nations.
Ok Folks, write and or call your senators and representatives and see what good it does. They are corporate employee’s of the UNITES STATES CORPORATION, NOT YOUR LOYAL REPS. They do not work for you and don’t give a damn what you want!

After writing a lengthy suicide note exposing terrifying plans the government has for American citizens, an agent with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) directorate walked onto a New York City pier on the Hudson River and used his service weapon to shoot himself in his head.
Several sources from the New York City Police Department reported to New York’s SuperStation95 FM, and to the Conservative Base that the contents of a lengthy and detailed suicide note found on the departed’s body described a frightening scenario of a federal government gone mad, according to Sgt. Neal McCaffrey.
“Apparently this was not an impromptu or impulsive act of suicide, but a plot that was hatched at least a week ago. The CBP agent, who was assigned to deportations of illegal aliens or legal aliens being kicked out of the U.S., was written in separate parts over at least seven days,” said McCaffrey who is assigned to city’s Human Services Police Division.
The note outlines why the officer chose to shoot himself: “The America I grew up in, and cherished, has been murdered by its own federal government. Our Constitution has become meaningless and our laws politicized so badly, they are no longer enforced except for political purposes” the note said. “Our elected officials are, to a person, utterly corrupt and completely devoid of any love or respect for the country which pays them. To them, everything is about getting and keeping power, and making illicit money from backroom deals.”
According to investigating homicide detectives, the 42-year-old U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation officer — who hasn’t yet been identified — shot himself with his own .40 caliber semiautomatic service weapon while on Pier 40 in Hudson River Park at around 11 am (et) on Friday the 13th.
“There’s no indication that the May 13 date of the suicide had any significant meaning to the perpetrator/victim who worked at the Homeland Security Department’s offices in Manhattan,” said Police Officer Iris Aquino (NYPD-Ret.) who worked in Queens, New York.
The suicide victim was rushed to Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital but doctors were never able to revive him. His superiors at ICE released an official statement Friday afternoon: “Tragically, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officer from the New York field office suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound and has passed away. The agency is not releasing further details pending notification of the officer’s next of kin.”
According to the suicide note, the officer said: “I was hired to enforce the law; to capture and deport people who come to this country against our laws. But now, if I dare to do that, I face being suspended or fired because our President refuses to faithfully execute the duties of his office. Instead, I come to work each day, and collect a paycheck twice a month, for intentionally doing little to nothing. I cannot and will not be a party to this fraud; to this usurpation of the law, or to the despicable politicians betraying our nation.”
ICE is conducting an internal investigation of the matter but the New York Police Department is in charge of the suicide shooting investigation.
Agent Mentions FEMA Camps for Americans
In the suicide note, the federal agent described horrifying plans the upper-echelon federal officials have been formulating:
“If the American people knew what this government is planning, they would rise-up and overthrow it. If I or anyone else in the federal government revealed what is coming, we would be killed anyway, so now I will reveal what I know.
“We in federal law enforcement have been drilling for several years to control riots and uprisings from a coming financial collapse and widespread bank failures. The drills involve life-sized images of American men, even women and children, whom we are told to shoot for “practice” and to “get used to it.”
“We have been told that the economy is terminally ill and will fail in 2016. We are also told the banks are all insolvent and the FDIC doesn’t have nearly enough funds to bail out depositors. We are told these events are unavoidable and it is imperative that the government survive when people rise-up over this.
“When the collapse takes place, detention camps created under the FEMA REX-84 program in the 1980’s to house illegal aliens whom we were going to deport, will instead be used to imprison American Citizens whom the government feels constitute a “threat.” American citizens will be rounded-up without warrants and imprisoned without trial for God knows how long.
“These camps have been equipped to carry out Hitler-scale killings! An actual “purge” of Americans citizens by the very government which they, themselves, created and pay for! I cannot be party to this.”
The bizarre suicide note also describes how the plan calls for state-level national guard soldiers to be disarmed by the feds and over 1-billion rounds of ammunition purchased by the feds, and the Military over-deployed and being shrunk:
“The government knows the military will rise-up to stop this, so our military is being deployed overseas, intentionally involved in foreign wars, and deliberately shrunk in size so they cannot be here or help Americans! This is why certain ammunition and weaponry has been removed from state-level National Guard Armories and over a Billion rounds of hollow point ammunition has been bought by the federal government. The states themselves have been disarmed of military-grade firepower so they cannot defend themselves from the federal activities. This is also why local police departments have been militarized and provided with armored vehicles and weapons of war.
“When the inevitable collapse begins to take place, electric power to the entire country will be shut off, as will all forms of communication. All banks will be immediately closed; no one will be able to get any money because all ATM’s will be offline. Credit, Debit and EBT cards will not function. Anyone without cash will have no way to get any. The Emergency Alert System will be used to takeover all broadcast stations and tell the public this is a result of a cyber attack.
“But while the American people patiently await things to get back to normal, the government will unleash round-ups of citizens they deem militants or dangerous. With all civilian communications out, and all TV and radio stations taken over by the Emergency Alert System, by the time word spreads of what is taking place, the government will already have the upper hand.”
Federal prisoners to be gassed
“Every federal prison has been outfitted with lethal gas systems. When things go bad, all prisoners in all prisons will be placed in their cells on lock-down. Prison staff will depart the facility, and a certain designated person will trigger a lethal gas system. All federal prisoners, regardless of their crime or their sentence, will be gassed to death in their cells. Once the gas clears, the dead will be removed and the prisons will then be used to house citizens who fight against the federal onslaught.”
Pastors recruited to calm the people to submit
“So intent is the government to succeed they have recruited priests, rabbis and clerics from various religions to quote Scripture about “obeying government.” They are being trained to tell people not to fight back and that their best hope is to pray.”
The suicide note goes to great lengths about Executive Order #13603 signed by President Obama on March 16, 2012. That note details:
Executive order 13603 about “National Defense Resources Preparedness.”
This 10-page document is a blueprint for a federal takeover of the economy. Specifically, Obama’s plan involves seizing control of:
- “All commodities and products that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals”
• “All forms of energy”
• “All forms of civil transportation”
• “All usable water from all sources”
• “Health resources – drugs, biological products, medical devices, materials, facilities, health supplies, services and equipment”
• “Forced labor ( or “induction” as the executive order delicately refers to military conscription)
Moreover, federal officials would “issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources.”
SuperStation95 took a look at this Executive Order from the Government Printing Office (GPO) web site and, sure enough, everything contained in the Officer’s suicide note about this Executive Order is true. Executive order 13603 says with ominous ambiguity: during “the full spectrum of emergencies.”
“If the dead Officer’s claims about an unavoidable economic and banking collapse are true, would it then follow that the Executive Order put in place by Obama, might be activated? Would all of us find ourselves in forced labor, while the government takes OUR food and re-distributes it under the Executive Order’s paragraph about “allocating resources?” This is terrifying stuff!
“There is much more to the suicide note and SuperStation95 is considering how much more to publish. As such, this is a developing story and readers should check back for further updates,” according to the radio station’s newsroom.

For radio interviews regarding this article:
I was going to publish an apology for yesterdays rant, but now I will once again warn every reader that your false confidence in the government will get you murdered, one way or another the Banking Cartel that owns us is going to dismantle governments world wide and establish a world Authority that controls all Nations and it appears that America will be the first so as to destabilize the rest of humanity and their local governments. You can deny all this till hell freezes over but the evidence is explicit and available to all who will look and learn. We all have been beguiled from the get go and I know it is a miserable experience to love your country and kill innocent people for it only to discover we have been lied to from birth. These incredibly evil Bankers have been working non stop for this for over a hundred years and it is time for every American to wake up and get prepared. The police will show no mercy because they believe they will be protected as long as they are loyal & obedient. After all they have families and want them to survive. Most of you have no earthly idea how merciless warriors can be.

As things are right now in America, there is nothing dumber than a person who will absolutely refuse to read anything that will remotely upset them. They do not want to have their emotional opinion of America debased, or have a reason to stop worshiping their scumbag politicians. They are still in the second grade intellectually when it comes to loyalty to the flag, and the ILLEGAL GOVERNMENT. They still believe God will right all wrongs, and ignore what the Holy Scriptures say. Most Christians believe it is a lack of faith to protect their own family and self from the government. It is an insult to God!
Well let me tell you squirrel brain idiots something, you are going to revert to an animal when you and your children are starving and you have no weapons to protect your wife and children from being raped, sodomized, and tortured before your eyes. Everything you possessed is now gone and your biggest concern is your money went first; followed by no electricity, gasoline, heat and air conditioning, food, ammo, and guns, all gone in a matter of a few days.
People you formerly loved will beat you to death for a piece of bread. And you are too stupid to believe it’s possible, in spite of the provable history of nations, war, murders, and loss of property. You will crawl on your belly and beg for mercy when there is none. You will watch your family be roasted and eaten by the lowest animals on two legs, and they will be laughing at your cowardice.
WAKE THE FUCK UP ASSHOLES
Your dream world just puked on everything you worshipped, and now there is no choice but to fight back until your legs are cut off and your bowls are spraying you with putrid excrement. Your last thought will probably be a vision of some young solider risking his life to drag your miserable ass to safety! That’s how stupid it is to ignore what is and will be, just because you are too chickenshit to learn and prepare. You just can’t stand for the lie to be proven; your government was the pukes that installed the Banking Cartels plan for a world government under their control. And you are expendable. Don’t think they will be merciful and keep you around to wipe their royal asses. Learn or burn!

By CORAL DAVENPORTOCT
WASHINGTON — As many as 25 states will join some of the nation’s most influential business groups in legal action to block President Obama’s climate change regulations when they are formally published Friday, trying to stop his signature environmental policy.
In August, the president announced in a White House ceremony that the Environmental Protection Agency rules had been completed, but they had not yet been published in the government’s Federal Register. Within hours of the rules’ official publication on Friday, a legal battle will begin, pitting the states against the federal government. It is widely expected to end up before the Supreme Court.
“I predict there will be a very long line of people at the federal courthouse tomorrow morning, eagerly waiting to file their suits on this case,” said Jeffrey R. Holmstead, a lawyer for the firm Bracewell & Giuliani who represents several companies that are expected to file such suits.
While the legal brawls could drag on for years, many states and companies, including those that are suing the administration, have also started drafting plans to comply with the rules. That strategy reflects the uncertainty of the ultimate legal outcome — and also means that many states could be well on the way to implementing Mr. Obama’s climate plan by the time the case reaches the Supreme Court.
The E.P.A.’s climate change rules are at the heart of Mr. Obama’s ambitious agenda to counter global warming by cutting emissions of planet-warming carbon pollution. If they withstand the legal challenges, the rules could shutter hundreds of polluting, coal-fired power plants and freeze construction of such plants in the future, while leading to a transformation of the nation’s power sector from reliance on fossil fuels to wind, solar and nuclear power.
Mr. Obama has also used the rules as leverage in his negotiations to reach a global climate change accord in Paris in December. He hopes to broker a deal committing every country to enacting domestic climate change policies.
The official publication of the rules will also spur legislative pushback on Capitol Hill, where Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, will introduce two resolutions to block them. The legislation will be introduced under the rarely used Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to block an executive branch rule within 60 legislative days of its publication.
While the resolutions are likely to pass the Republican-controlled Congress, Mr. Obama would be expected to veto them. But by introducing the resolutions, Mr. McConnell hopes to convey to the world that Congress does not support the Obama regulations — a message that could be amplified if the Senate votes on the resolutions before or during the Paris summit meeting.
The Obama administration has sought to ensure that the rules will not come under question before that meeting. By delaying the official publication of the rules until nearly three months after they were announced, for example, the administration appeared to be trying to ensure that no major legal decisions to weaken them would be issued before the Paris meeting.
A broad and powerful coalition of governors, attorneys general, coal companies, electric utilities and business groups such as the United States Chamber of Commerce will file suits contending that the rules, put forth under the 1970 Clean Air Act, represent an illegal interpretation of the law. They will also petition to delay implementation of the rule until the case is argued in federal court.
“The president’s illegal rule will have devastating impacts on West Virginia families, and families across the country,” Attorney General Patrick Morrisey of West Virginia said in a statement. Mr. Morrisey, whose home state’s economy is heavily dependent on coal mining, is expected to play a lead role in the multistate lawsuit.
States and companies may be hedging their bets.
In Georgia, Gov. Nathan Deal’s administration plans to sue the E.P.A. At the same time, the governor, a Republican, has also instructed his director of environmental protection, Judson H. Turner, to begin crafting a plan to comply with the rules.
“The governor of Georgia said to me, ‘Whatever action may be taken on the legal front, we’ll need to develop a plan that works for Georgia,’ ” Mr. Turner said. If Mr. Obama’s plan survives the legal challenge, Mr. Turner added, “we’ll have the confidence that we’ll put a plan for Georgia together that’s better than a federal plan.”
Similar dynamics are playing out in many other states that are suing over the rules, said Vicki Arroyo, the executive director of the Georgetown University Climate Center, which focuses on state-level climate policies.
“It’s really rare to find a state that just says, ‘Hell no,’ ” she said.
The rules assign each state a target for reducing its carbon pollution from power plants, but allows states to create their own custom plans for doing so. That rule is designed to encourage states to make major changes in their electric power sectors — for example, to shut down coal-fired power plants and replace them with wind and solar power. It is also designed to encourage states to enact so-called cap-and-trade systems, under which they would place a cap on carbon emissions and create a market for buying and selling pollution credits.
States have to submit an initial version of their plans by 2016 and final versions by 2018. States that refuse to submit a plan will be forced to comply with one developed by the federal government.
Republican governors have denounced the rule, particularly its emphasis on pushing cap-and-trade systems; in his first term, Mr. Obama tried but failed to send a cap-and-trade bill through Congress. Since then, the term has become politically toxic: Republicans have attacked the idea as “cap-and-tax.” The governors of five states — Texas, Indiana, Wisconsin, Louisiana and Oklahoma — have threatened to refuse to submit a plan of any kind.
But economists and many industry leaders have found that in many cases, the easiest and cheapest way for states to comply would be by adopting cap-and-trade systems.
American Electric Power, an electric utility that operates in 11 states, is among the companies that intends to sue the administration over the rule. At the same time, the company’s vice president, John McManus, said: “We think it makes sense for states to at least start developing a plan. The alternative of having a federal plan has risks.” And he said that his company could support a cap-and-trade plan. “The initial read is that a market-based approach is more workable,” he said.

TRUMP AND THE MILITIA
By Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.
May 17, 2016
Please understand that I am not a “tub-thumper”, an enthusiast, or an apologist for Donald Trump. But his electrifying emergence on the scene represents a sea-change in American politics far more consequential than his own pyrotechnic personality, bold campaign-style, and receipt of popular acclaim suggest. He is, as it were, the surfer who—perhaps by accident, perhaps by insight, but in any event in a timely fashion—has caught the first of the really big waves rolling towards shore. The significant aspect of the present situation is not the surfer, however, but the wave: namely, the upsurge of popular disgust for the “two”-party political vessel in which this country is sailing on a collision-course into the rocks of despair. This first big wave threatens all of the ships riding at anchor in the Establishment’s harbor. So the Establishment needs to throw up a breakwater, in a manner both fast and furious.
As anyone with 20-20 political vision can see, America’s domestic enemies have taken off their velvet gloves to reveal the iron fists underneath, by employing against Trump directly, and America ultimately, the modern Bolshevistic strategy of socio-political destabilization through so-called “non-violent direct action”, “weathermen” tactics, and “color revolutions”—all in line with the old Leninist/Stalinist slogan, “there are no fortresses which Bolsheviks cannot storm”. Please refrain from chiding me that the contemporary Establishment is not, to one degree or another, made up largely of Bolsheviks. The opposite is obviously true. Some are retreaded Trotskyites (who call themselves “neoconservatives”). Others are watered-down Mensheviks (who call themselves “social democrats” or “moderate socialists”).
Others are the equivalent of NEP-men (better known here as “corporate socialists”, because they rely on governmental intervention in the economy to guarantee profits for themselves, while offloading losses onto the backs of the general public). And all of them are doctrinaire Leninists, inasmuch as they subscribe to his notion that “[t]he scientific term ‘dictatorship’ means nothing more nor less than authority untrammeled by any laws, absolutely unrestricted by any rules whatever, and based directly on force”. Vladimir I. Lenin, “A Contribution to the History of the Question of the Dictatorship, A Note” , in Collected Works (Moscow, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: Progress Publishers, 4th English Edition, 1966), Volume 31, at 353. None of these people gives a tinker’s dam for the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution—indeed, they believe themselves to be “untrammeled by any laws”. And all of them enthusiastically promote the present-day global “war on terrorism”, under color of which a para-militarized police-state apparatus, “absolutely unrestricted by any rules whatever, and based directly on force”, is being built up within this country in order to wage a domestic “war of terrorism” against the American people. See my book By Tyranny Out of Necessity: The Bastardy of “Martial Law” for the particulars on this.
If I may base my appreciation of the present situation upon an historical parallel drawn from Germany’s dolorous experience under the Weimar government in the 1920s and 1930s (which is probably familiar to most readers of this commentary), the advent of these bare-knuckled mass assaults on this country amounts to our own home-grown Bolsheviks’ declaration of ein Kampf um die Macht auf Leben und Tod (a struggle for power to the death). They will employ their Rotfrontkämpferbund (Red Front fighters’ league) to try to derail Trump’s nomination, through die Herrschaft des Pöbels auf der Straße (mobocracy in the street). If he is nominated, they will use der Bund to try to deny him election. If he is elected notwithstanding all of their efforts before November, they will then turn der Bund loose to stifle any major reforms which he attempts to put through after his inauguration, whether with or especially without Congress, the Judiciary, and the bureaucracy behind him. And please spare me the innuendo that, by drawing upon this parallel, I am somehow suggesting that Trump is a modern American “Hitler” figure. Rather, my intuition tells me that Trump is the sort of individual, perhaps rough-hewn but basically honest, who might have saved Germany from Hitlerism, as well as from Bolshevism, had the good Germans who came forward in der Wiederstand (the resistance-movement) after 1933 been more prescient and better organized before then.
One may ask why America’s Bolsheviks have decided to come out of the closet to exhibit their true coloration by unleashing mobocracy in the street, when they can (and surely will) employ every kind of old-fashioned fraud familiar in American politics to steal the election. The answer is that they anticipate their inability to put into practice Stalin’s apperçu that who votes is less important than who counts the votes, and are prudently preparing for the worst possible eventuality—namely, that in these unsettled times even widespread electoral fraud may not deprive Trump of victory if the polling-places are inundated by a true “revolt of the masses”. Moreover, even the most effective techniques of electoral fraud will be useless after the election. No further elections of consequence will be held during the first two years in which Trump holds “the Office of President”. If he cannot be stifled during that period, perhaps “the Trump phenomenon” will prove its worth in successful Presidential actions, and then will demonstrate its longevity and strength in the next elections—with the Bolsheviks suffering defeat after defeat. Between elections, the Bolsheviks will not be able to rely exclusively upon their co-conspirators, fellow travelers, dupes, useful idiots, and assorted fools in Congress, the Judiciary, and the bureaucracy to stand up to Trump. For the righteous anger of legions of patriotic Americans lined up behind him will give all of them pause. To put iron in their cronies’ backbones, the Bolsheviks will need to provide them with muscle in the streets: namely, hordes of well-funded, well-drilled “protesters” and “dissenters” deployed to shout down, or violently shut down, every popular manifestation of support for Trump.
So, as President, Trump—and all of the patriotic Americans in his camp—will desperately need the Militia:
(i) to awaken, energize, authorize, mobilize, organize, equip, train, and deploy on his behalf those whom the Declaration of Independence styles “the good People”;
(ii) to protect Trump himself—because no part of the present governmental apparatus at any level of the federal system can be trusted to do so;
(iii) to put through fundamental reforms that can be accomplished by the President alone (“to execute the Laws of the Union”, including both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, perforce of Article I, § 8, cl. 15 and such statutes as 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f); 10 U.S.C. §§ 332 and 333; and 18 U.S.C. §§ 241 and 242), in particular against entrenched, recalcitrant, hostile, and disloyal bureaucrats and subversive private factions and other NGOs and special-interest groups; and especially
(iv) to leave puissant governmental institutions for “the good People” to use on their own at the State and Local levels in the event of an unavoidable and utterly destabilizing national crisis, probably centered in banking and haute finance, which breaks out during his Presidency.
With respect to points (ii) and (iii) in particular, one might recall the wisdom of General William Tecumseh Sherman who, when importuned to make himself a candidate for the White House, replied that “I would account myself a fool, a madman, an ass, to embark anew, at sixty-five years of age, in a career that may, at any moment, become tempest-tossed by the perfidy, the defalcation, the dishonesty or neglect of any of a hundred thousand subordinates utterly unknown to the President of the United States.” Quoted in Burke Davis, Sherman’s March (New York, New York: Vantage Books, 1988), at 298. So, if Trump intends to embark upon such a dangerous “career”, he must confront the risk of disloyal “subordinates utterly unknown to the President”, in terms of their identities, their subversive agenda, and their actual misdeeds. This problem can be solved only through mobilization of the Militia—for example, through the “execution of [certain of] the Laws of the Union” (say, 10 U.S.C. §§ 332 and 333 coupled with 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001, 1505, 1512, 1513, 1515, and 2071) for the purpose of airing all of the dirty linen which the bureaucracy has been hiding, from the extent of the CIA’s infiltration of and covert influence over other civilian governmental agencies, the Armed Forces, and private concerns, to the truth concerning the assassinations of JFK, the Waco massacre, the events surrounding 9/11, the origin and promotion of ISIS (and allied “radical Moslem” organizations), and so on and on and on.
Inasmuch as der Rotfrontkämpferbund is now being brazenly deployed, a counterrevolutionary “white” force must be mobilized to oppose and defeat it. If loyal Americans want to avoid witnessing the rise of some extreme “right-wing” (actually, “right-socialistic”) “brown” force such as die Sturmabteilung (by default the main counterweight to the Communist street-gangs in Weimar Germany during her time of troubles)—which many desperate Americans will demand, and not a few will surely join, if they are offered no other powerful alternative—something else must be provided for them. This force must be raised from among “the good People”, there being no other source with the necessary loyalty, legal authority, self-interest, and sheer numbers requisite for the task at hand. Especially, it must be a force with explicit and unequivocal authority under the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, an establishment within the government, not a force the provenance of which can be traced only to some private political party, movement, or group.
Therefore, if Trump actually intends to be a constitutional “Commander in Chief” in the fullest sense in both law and fact—and, Heaven knows, if he does not intend as much then he should emulate General Sherman by not seeking “the Office of President” at all—he needs to promote the exercise of that high authority against America’s domestic enemies, through exhortation for and mobilization of what the Constitution itself declares to be uniquely “necessary to the security of a free State”, and to which it explicitly assigns the authority and responsibility “to execute the Laws of the Union”—and he must do this, in both words and deeds, immediately if not sooner. This is no time to play for time; for, as the old saying has it, time brings all things, bad as well as good. During his campaign, he must advocate revitalization of the Militia; and, after his election, he must take every action necessary and proper to that end. I suspect that, if he does grasp that nettle, he will be able to say of the contemporary Establishment what General Sherman said of the old Confederacy: “pierce the shell, and it’s all hollow inside”.
On the other hand, if—Heaven forfend!—Hillary Clinton should seize “the Office of President”, either by her own devices or (more likely) with the aid of anti-Trump back-stabbers in the Republican Party or some third-party “spoiler” candidate (from such as the Libertarian Party, which disastrously split the conservative vote in favor of a dyed-in-the-wool Clintonite in the last gubernatorial election in Virginia), she and the Bolsheviks behind her will not sit on their hands. Instead, emboldened by their triumph in scotching Trump, they will turn out der Rotfrontkämpferbund to advance their revolutionary agenda by deploying das Faustrecht (mob rule by the fist) against all of the “constitutionalist”, “patriotic”, “conservative”, “traditionalist”, and other politically, economically, and culturally “right-wing” groups in the country: First, to intimidate them and anyone who even tangentially supports them. Second, to turn the undecided citizenry against them when they try to defend themselves (denouncing even their verbal self-defense as “incitement to violence”). And third, to unleash para-militarized police-state oppression, some species of “martial law” jury-rigged under color of “emergency powers”, Vyshinsky-type prosecutors, and the kangaroo courts to suppress whichever Americans try to stand up for their natural and constitutional rights. This, the Bolsheviks will expect, will bring about die Endlösung (the final solution) of the problems of popular sovereignty and popular self-government which so vex all totalitarians.
The even more ominous problem is that, one way or another, during a Hillary Clinton Presidency America will surely be subjected to Bolshevism running amok. In the event, say, of a sudden catastrophic collapse of the monetary and banking systems—leading to hyperinflation, a depression, or (most likely) the one followed by the other—Hillary will not allow herself to become a latter-day Herbert Hoover. Instead, she will strike out wildly at everyone whom she will perceive as an “enemy”. Her incompetence being exceeded only by her arrogance, ambition, avarice, and appetite for the exercise of abusive authority, she will immediately invoke “emergency powers”, and especially some version of “martial law”. The entire world is already aware of her homicidal extremism, in the epitaph for Gaddafi which she cackled after the Libyan affair: “We came, we saw, he died!” Undoubtedly, she will display that same barbaric attitude here—unless WE THE PEOPLE will be ready, willing, and able to invoke Nancy Reagan’s dictum: “Just say no!” The effectiveness of most laws requires that most of the citizenry are willing to obey them without demur. If the run of common Americans will come to realize that “emergency powers” are bunkum, that “martial law” is bunkum to the second power, and that no one but THE PEOPLE themselves can maintain “the security of a free State”, in the manner which the Constitution mandates, Hillary will find herself a tin-pot dictatrix without the ability to dictate, because she will be without subjects willing to acquiesce in her dictation. When that time comes, however, THE PEOPLE will have to know what their rights, duties and powers are—and what her powers (the powers of any President, for that matter) are not. Between now and then, they will have a lot to learn, and not much time in which to learn it.
Be forewarned. One need not be a dabbler in the occult to foretell the future in this respect. Neither need one be much of a student of modern history to fear the accuracy in these times of the old adages that “no one learns anything from history other than that no one ever learns anything from history”, and that “we grow too soon old and too late smart”. (Personally, too, I appreciate the wisdom of the observation that “no man is ever taken for a prophet in his own country”. For I have long been struggling to educate Americans about the Militia—and, most recently, about the utter illegality of “martial law”—with about as much success as if I had been trying to sell a twelve-step program in humility and reticence to the Kardashians.)
Nonetheless, I believe that Mao Tse-tung was correct (albeit perhaps only accidentally or hypocritically so) when he wrote that “[t]he people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history”, that “[t]he masses have boundless creative power”, and that
[a]ll reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying, but in reality they are not so powerful. From a long-term point of view, it is not the reactionaries but the people who are really powerful.
Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung (Peking, China: Foreign Languages Press, 1966), at 118, 118, and 72. Thus, to turn the Bolsheviks’ own slogan to the purpose of America’s salvation: “There are no fortresses which ‘the good People’ cannot storm.”
In the final analysis, it is critically important that Trump should turn to “the good People”, trust “the good People”, empower “the good People”, and rely upon “the good People”. Not only for his own sake (which in the great scheme of things amounts to little), but also for their sake first and foremost (which amounts to everything). As modern Presidential campaigns illustrate, this country is steeped in its own bastard version of das Führerprinzip (the leader principle). As early as 1933, America had her “Chief” (Roosevelt), just as Germany had her Führer (Hitler), Italy her Duce (Mussolini), and Russia her Vozhd’ (Stalin), to be followed not long afterwards by Red China with her “Great Helmsman” (Mao). Today, all too many Americans view a President as someone whose purpose is to advance the agenda of their political party or special-interest group, not someone who should act unselfishly with and through WE THE PEOPLE so that THE PEOPLE themselves can become permanently the masters of their own destiny. Such approval of, or at least acquiescence in, rule from “the top down” must in short order prove fatal to popular self-government.In principle, it denies the precept of the Declaration that “Governments * * * instituted among Men[ ] deriv[e] their just powers from the consent of the governed”—not from acceptance by “the governed” of “the leader’s” mere assertions of authority. In practice, it generates increasingly uncritical support for “the leader’s” program, then increasingly blind obedience to his dictates. Until society arrives at the terminal stage of suicidal political regimentation: Führer befehl, wir folgen (leader command, we follow).
Just as the strength of any pyramid resides at its base, not at its apex, so, too, with popular sovereignty—and with the Power of the Sword in WE THE PEOPLE’S hands for the purpose of “execut[ing] the Laws of the Union” through the Militia. In a constitutional republic, true authority and legitimate power never descend from “the top down”, but always arise—indeed, can be generated and exercised only—from “the bottom up”. Trump’s greatest achievement (were he capable of any truly great achievement) would be to put this truth into action. By one segment of the population he will be damned if he does; and, by another segment, damned if he does not; so he may as well be taken for a goat rather than a sheep. That goes for the rest of us, too.

http://nesaranews.blogspot.com/2013/10/open-letter-from-we-people.html To the following:
US Military, Pentagon Joint Chiefs, Flag Officers, Provost Marshall, Inspector General, and Office of Management & Budget, US Corporation and its Agents & Actors–an act of giving Public Notice.
We THE People who are the Civilian Authority with the superior lawfull standing over the U.S. Corporation=UNITED STATES CORPORATION and authority over the U.S. Military acting under the Original Jurisdiction of the United States Constitution 1789, Bill of Rights 1791 with the original 13th Amendment=”which removes persons who have accepted an entitlement from holding public office” as the United States of America, Republic form of Government, De Jure, standing as the true form of Government is proud to announce and notice the following effective IMMEDIATELY.
The purpose of this writing is to add the next pieces to the graphical explanation of the relationships between the US Corporation to Straw man and to Us – the living breathing men and women who occupy the geographical lands of the De Jure Constitutional Government for the United States of America.
We want to know that our boarders are watched and we are protected when we come and go either on pleasure or business. We want to make sure we have a roof over our head, good food not GMO to eat, and the people who represent us at State and Federal levels are looking out for us and not their personal pocket books.
So we want to disconnect ourselves from the US Corporation both personally, State and Federal wise. So the questions are many and what should we be aware of to disconnect.
On March 27, 1861, seven (7) southern states walked out of the Union along with several of the northern states under ”Sine Die” breaking the contract between the Federation and Union States. The states seceding from the Union were South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas.
This event caused the contract which consisted of the Articles of Confederation, the Organic Constitution of 1789 and the Bill of Rights of 1791 to be breached.
Upon breaking this contract, the following happened: The Union of States relationship was suspended and the United States of America was suspended in its existence.
Article I – Legislation was suspended; Under Parliament Congress, Congress ceased to exist as a lawful body and all lawful Republic governmental Seats were vacant*
Article II – Executive branch was suspended; Office of President was suspended – Office of the President was vacant* (President had no authority to declare war). At this point, the then sitting President had no power, no authority, his position as president was suspended and considered vacant by the De Jure Republic Constitutional Government.
Article III – Judicial Courts were suspended; Article III Judicial seats are vacated.*
* = per Administrative Court Judge in a North Carolina case FILE NO. : 11 CVS 1559
On April 15, 1861, President Lincoln executed the first executive order written by any President, Executive Order 1, Executive Orders are not constitutional however it is perceived as law by the use of television propagating the deception. This is not correct; an Executive Order is the memo method of communicating between departments of a corporation and is not the law of the land.
When Congress eventually did reconvene, it was reconvened under the military authority of the Commander-in-Chief and not by Rules of Order for Parliamentary bodies or by Constitutional Law; placing the American people under martial rule ever since that national emergency declared by President Lincoln.
The Constitution for the United States of America temporarily ceased to be the law of the land, and the President, Congress, and the Courts unlawfully presumed that they were free to remake the national government in their own fashion, whereas, lawfully, no constitutional provisions were in place which afforded power or authority to enact any of the actions which were taken which presumed to place the nation under the new form of federal government control.
On April 17, 1861 and over the next five (5) weeks – seceding from the Union were the additional states of Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Arkansas totaling eleven (11) confederate states.
In 1862, the unlawful congress redefined the word Person as a legal term of art, creating a fictional entity, fictional characterization, Straw man, corporate entity. Definition: Person = Fictional Characterization which allowed the unlawful congress to say “that you can create, you can control”.
In 1864, the unlawfull congress redefining the word STATE to be District of Columbia. They are setting a pattern for “that you can create, you can control”. In Webster’s dictionary 1828, the definition for Columbia as a noun is America; the United States; a poetical appellation given in honor of Columbus, the discoverer.
Furthermore, the definition used today in US Corporation speeches, law, statutes, Court System for Person = Fictional Characterization and STATE= District of Columbia are hereby repealed, revoked and terminated because these words were redefined by an Unconstitutional congress to be used to entrap the living, breathing flesh and blood man or woman into debt slavery by the 14th amendment. This is spoken by the We THE People of the De Jure Constitutional Government for the United States of America.
The definition for Person and for State as per Webster dictionary 1828:
PERSON, noun per’sn. [Latin persona; said to be compounded of per, through or by, and sonus, sound; a Latin word signifying primarily a mask used by actors on the state.] 1. An individual human being consisting of body and soul. We apply the word to living beings only, possessed of a rational nature; the body when dead is not called a person, It is applied alike to a man, woman or child. A person is a thinking intelligent being: verb transitive, To represent as a person; to make to resemble; to image. [Not in use.]
STATE, noun [Latin, to stand, to be fixed.] 1. Condition; the circumstances of a being or thing at any given time. These circumstances may be internal, constitutional or peculiar to the being, or they may have relation to other beings. We say, the body is in a sound state or it is in a weak state; or it has just recovered from a feeble state, The state of his health is good. The state of his mind is favorable for study. So we say, the state of public affairs calls for the exercise of talents and wisdom. In regard to foreign nations, our affairs are in a good state, So we say, single state and married state. Declare the past and present state of things.
STATE, verb transitive, 1. To set; to settle. [See Stated.] 2. To express the particulars of any thing verbally; to represent fully in words; to narrate; to recite. The witnesses stated all the circumstances of the transaction. They are enjoined to state all the particulars. It is the business of the advocate to state the whole case. Let the question be fairly stated.
As we continue with the for mentioned timeline, The US Corporation continues to attack the vacant seats of the De Jure Constitutional Government, its people and the lands by writing Executive Orders, Acts and Treaties created by the US Corporation that starts with the “Act of 1871.”, Creating the District of Columbia and defining it as a state while the Union States are redefined as territories under the District of Columbia, the “Pan American treaty of 12-26-1933 (49STAT3097) Treaty Series 881”, and the “International Organization Immunities Act of 12-9-1945,” since all of these ACT’s and Treaty references were created by an Unconstitutional government. We THE People are not obligated nor bound by these unconstitutional instruments.
That the Pan American treaty of 12-26-1933 (49 STAT 3097) Treaty Series 881 – (Convention on Rights and Duties of States) stated CONGRESS replaced STATUTES with international law, placing all states under international law.
That the International Organization Immunities Act of 12-9-1945 – – Congress relinquished every public office over to the UN. Local governments up to the president fall under UN jurisdiction. Congress gave the UN the right to dictate what laws will be international & gave them the right to tax the States.
That the International Reorganization Rescind Act- Congress put this into form but they never took action to rescind the act. Fairly recently an Ohio judge filed suit claiming that Congress did not have the right to relinquish government authority over to the UN (a corporation or foreign country) and that the Congressional act was a constitutional violation because they didn’t put it to the States or the people to agree on it. In 2005 the US Supreme court declined to hear the case therefore all public offices are under UN jurisdiction & they are not American Citizens.
Furthermore, the action by the US Corporation has been Fraudulent in representation of the people of the United States of America as well as taking advantage of minors. The individuals who represent this corporation are not We THE Peoples’ government and these individuals are by lawful governing considered to be Corporate CONTRACTORS =ACTORS who do not represent the Political Will of the People. We THE People do hereby declare the US Corporation governs NOTHING since they are nothing more than an unlawful criminal organization. The US Corporation is physically bound to White House = CEO office and Capital Building = Board of Directors office on the land they call District of Columbia. They have NO authority over the people or lands of the United States of America or the District of Columbia.
Furthermore, all adhesion contracts are suspended and revoked due to the fraudulent actions by US Corporation and Banking industry against the living breathing flesh and blood men and women of the United States of America.
Adhesion contract examples (not a complete list):
Minor – certified birth certificate on bonded paper, Social Security Number, Driver License;
Adult – Marriage License, Voter Registration, License as Contractor, usage of Zip Code, USPS – FEMA green address plates for mailboxes, IRS – income filings signature binds a person to pay Unconstitutional taxes which is a fraudulent act since taxation repealed in 1939, taxation without representation and not disclosing taxation is voluntary;
Other – the autograph line on personal checks is micro-printed by Banking Industry further binding parties to debt; mortgages with no jurisdictional representation and much more.
Furthermore, the Bretton Woods Agreement Act with the association of the US Corporation with the CROWN = Rothschild Banking Cartel, the International Monetary Fund are foreign entities and Unconstitutional and are suspended and revoked by We THE People of the De Jure Constitutional Government for the United States of America.
- Bretton Woods Agreements Act, International Monetary Fund/World Bank Group [As Amended Through P.L. 112–74, Enacted December 23, 2011]
AN ACT To provide for the participation of the United States in the International Monetary Fund and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1, 22 U.S.C. 286 note, This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Bretton Woods Agreements Act’’.
ACCEPTANCE OF MEMBERSHIP
SEC. 2, 22 U.S.C. 286, The President is hereby authorized to accept membership for the United States in the International Monetary Fund (herein after referred to as the ‘‘Fund’’), and in the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (hereinafter referred to as the ‘‘Bank’’), provided for the Articles of Agreement of the Fund and the Articles of Agreement of the Bank as set forth in the Final Act of the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference dated July 22, 1944, and deposited in the archives of the Department of State.
APPOINTMENT OF GOVERNORS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS, AND ALTERNATES
SEC. 3.1, 22 U.S.C. 286a, (a) The President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint a governor of the Fund who shall also serve as governor of the Bank, and an executive director of the Fund and an executive director of the Bank. The executive directors so appointed shall also serve provisional executive directors of the Fund and the Bank for the purposes of the respective Articles of Agreement. The term of office for the governor of the Fund and of the Bank shall be five years. The term of office for the executive directors shall be two years, but the executive directors shall remain in office until their successors have been appointed. (b) The President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint an alternate for the governor of the fund and an alternate for the governor of the Bank. 2 The President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint an alternate for F:COMPIFIBRETTON. December 23, 2011.
Furthermore, the United Nations has been given direct orders to stand down and to leave the Republic State of New York and the entire geographical lands known as United States of America. No department of our government shall report to a foreign agency or foreign agent. United Nations failure to comply shows their intent to continue to carry forward the criminal Agenda 21 of mass murder of people in the United States of American and the World. It is the duty and obligation of the Military to remove these criminal power seekers from our lands.
We THE People now understand that we have been fooled, manipulated and coerced by fraudulent acts committed by Abraham Lincoln and the US Corporation through their adhesion contracts for their financial gains.
Furthermore, The POPE on July 11 and effective September 1, 2013 issued a APOSTOLIC LETTER ISSUED MOTU PROPRIO OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF FRANCIS ON THE JURISDICTION OF THE JUDICIAL AUTHORITIES OF VATICAN CITY STATE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS.
Pope Francis Apostolic Letter effectively stripped away the immunity of all judges, attorneys, government officials and all entities established under the Roman Curia. Since “All” corporations are established under the Roman Curia they have their immunity stripped away including their C level, Executive level, Office of General Council, and significant operational staff.
All of these “persons” can be held accountable for war crimes, crimes against humanity, for the unlawful restrictions of the liberties of the divine spirit incarnate; for failure to settle the accounts; for continued prosecution of claims already settled, etc. Definition: Divine Spirit is humanity.
Over the past several years, there has been a great and powerful movement by the patriots and others to take back our Unalienable rights, pronouns as UN-A-LIEN-ABLE or said Not-a-lien-able right. This means no one can take these from us as per the bible and our fore fathers. To stand up the republic once again and dissolve the US Corporation and rid ourselves of the banking cartels who direct the central banking wars for their profit.
On October 21st, 2012, a group of living breathing men and woman meet with a specific intent to reseat our Federal government. They did reseat our United States of America as a sovereign Nation once again. Along with that comes the re-instatement of the contract between Federal and Union States or Nation States. We THE People stand once again under the De Jure Constitutional Government, Republic form of Government which represents the People of this great land known as United States of America. The offices that have sat vacant since March 27 1861 are now being filled with men and woman from this nation.
By the Political Will of We THE People we hereby claim the following:
- Revocation of all the unconstitutional acts, treaties, proclamations, etc. since March 27 1861,
- The law of the land is Geneva & King James Bible, Common Law, Articles of Confederation, the Organic Constitution of 1789, the Bill of Rights of 1791 and Northwest Ordinance. These laws apply to all 50 Nation States.
- US Corporation is Confined to the geographical area called the District of Columbia, The US Corporation is physically bound to White House = CEO office and Capital Building = Board of Directors office.
- The US Corporation has NO authority over the people or lands of the United States of America and the people or land of the District of Columbia.
- Revocation of all adhesion contracts by US Corporation due to their fraudulent actions against the people.
- The IRS and Federal Reverse are associated with US Corporation and IMF which have no authority to operate on the lands of the United States of America.
- The De Jure Constitutional Government declares Martial law over the US Corporation and the land known as Washington DC. Washington DC will be patrolled by the United States Military and Militias of the states assigned to do so.
- We THE People will consider criminal charges against all the actors, agents and their supporting staff as far back as necessary …
It is the Political Will of We THE People~

As many have noted, Ferguson, Missouri, currently looks like a war zone. And its police—kitted out with Marine-issue camouflage and military-grade body armor, toting short-barreled assault rifles, and rolling around in armored vehicles—are indistinguishable from soldiers.
America has been quietly arming its police for battle since the early 1990s.
Faced with a bloated military and what it perceived as a worsening drug crisis, the 101st Congress in 1990 enacted the National Defense Authorization Act. Section 1208 of the NDAA allowed the Secretary of Defense to “transfer to Federal and State agencies personal property of the Department of Defense, including small arms and ammunition, that the Secretary determines is— (A) suitable for use by such agencies in counter-drug activities; and (B) excess to the needs of the Department of Defense.” It was called the 1208 Program. In 1996, Congress replaced Section 1208 with Section 1033.
The idea was that if the U.S. wanted its police to act like drug warriors, it should equip them like warriors, which it has—to the tune of around $4.3 billion in equipment, according to a report by the American Civil Liberties Union. The St. Louis County Police Department’s annual budget is around $160 million. By providing law enforcement agencies with surplus military equipment free of charge, the NDAA encourages police to employ military weapons and military tactics.
1033 procurements are not matters of public record. And the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), which coordinates distribution of military surplus, refuses to reveal the names of agencies requesting “tactical” items, like assault rifles and MRAPs — for security reasons, a spokesperson for DLA told Newsweek via email. One can only trace “tactical” items as far the county of the requesting agency. In the case of Ferguson, that means St. Louis County.
St. Louis County law enforcement agencies have, through the 1033 Program, acquired the following “tactical” equipment, according to Mike O’Connell, Communications Director for the Missouri Department of Public Safety:
Despite the fact that police in Ferguson have been photographed with a matte black vehicle which appears to be a “Bearcat” MRAP, O’Connell told Newsweek that no St. Louis County law enforcement agencies have acquired any MRAPs through the 1033 program.
If the vehicle in the above Reuters photo is indeed an MRAP and not one of the nine “utility trucks” acquired by St. Louis County law enforcement, O’Connell said he does not know where it came from.
Police in Watertown, Connecticut, (population 22,514) recently acquired a mine-resistant, ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicle (sticker price: $733,000), designed to protect soldiers from roadside bombs, for $2,800. There has never been a landmine reported in Watertown, Connecticut.
Police in small towns in Michigan and Indiana have used the 1033 Program to acquire “MRAP armored troop carriers, night-vision rifle scopes, camouflage fatigues, Humvees and dozens of M16 automatic rifles,” the South Bend Tribune reported.
And police in Bloomington, Georgia, (population: 2,713) acquired four grenade launchers through the program, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Given the proliferation of military weapons and military training among America’s police departments, the use of military force and military tactics is not surprising. When your only tool is a hammer, after all, every problem looks like a nail.
Update: Missouri DPS Communications Director O’Connell on Thursday morning sent the following e-mail confirming that St. Louis law enforcement agencies also received 12 5.56 millimeter rifles and six .45 caliber pistols as part of 1033 Program.
Our DoD program rep was curious why no weapons showed up in her search yesterday. She searched a different way this morning and it showed that twelve 5.56 millimeter rifles and six .45 caliber pistols went to St. Louis County law enforcement agencies between Aug. 2, 2010 and Feb. 13, 2013. This was erroneously omitted from the report I sent you last night. She’s double checked again this morning and is confident this was the only omission.
Sorry for the oversight.

I will not accuse Dave of being a scare monger, but I have a hard time believing everything he publishes. However this time he has raised a problem I have not formerly applied much importance on, and that is the number of foreign troops he expects to show up. This could be a real problem in a Nation too self centered to have demanded a contingent of State Militias. As it stands now with our dumbed down population, and lack of secure communications, a counter offensive is sure suicide, and only a handful of us will stand up and fight back. Not all of us are willing to die on our knees. Good luck America, you had a good run!
By Dave Hodges
This picture and depicts Russian soldiers at Ft. Carson. The Russians and other foreign troops (e.g. Germans, Canadians, Danes) are part of Jade Helm. They are here to carry out the mission should American troops stand down.
All world leaders, who are proxies for the New World Order know that their own individual military forces will not murder their own people in large enough numbers to make a difference with regard to citizen resistance to a nation’s fall into absolute tyranny.
The world is now witnessing the transfer of domestic military power to foreign entities and every citizen of every modern country in the world, should be extremely fearful. These foreign troops will have no compunction as to how many people that they will murder on the path to establishing a New World Order.
There are clear signs that the globalists are making their move to subjugate the entire G-20, and they are making that move, NOW.
The Bloodbath Will Commence with the Fall of the American Economy
Australia In Danger!
ABC News in Australia has announced that the Australian Government has just released a Multi- Billion Dollar Deal made with Singapore to House and Rotate 14,000 Singapore Soldiers. And of course, under the principle of incrementalism, it is only 14,000 troops today, but it could just as easily become 140,000 foreign troops tomorrow.
Under the agreement, that will bring combat troops from Singapore to Australia, the Australian people would fund the cost of expanding the Shoal water Bay Training Area and the Townsville Field Training Area, both in the north of Queensland state.
This is a move predicated towards the implementation of martial law and this also provides the foreign interlopers a permanent base of operations.
Many Australians have not surrendered their guns because many of them anticipated what was coming, namely, total economic collapse courtesy of the derivatives, and absolute gun confiscation which will be enforced with extreme prejudice. The Australian courts will not be involved in the coming martial law and ensuing gun confiscation activities. Foreign officers, in their field command capacity will be given the Carte Blanche authority to enforce gun confiscation to the letter of the law.
The Australian government has sold out their citizens and have set them up for foreign occupation the roll out a brutal martial law.
No Difference Between Australia and America
There is clear evidence that the foreign soldiers are going to be trained to take over the FEMA Camps and the question as to whether American forces would fire upon American citizens is a moot point.
Training Foreigners To Take Over the Camps
“This appendix addresses aspects of developing confinement officers in other countries. For the purposes of this appendix, the terms foreign and HN confinement officers are synonymous”.
Foreign Confinement Officer Training Program
Training U.S. Trainers
N-43. Soldiers and Marines who are assigned training missions receive a course of preparation to deal with the specific requirements of developing the target HN confinement officers (i.e. foreign detention officers). The course should emphasize the cultural background of the HN, introduce its language (to include specific confinement-related terms and phrases) and provide insights into cultural tips for developing a good rapport with HN personnel.
The beginning of this section attempts to create the illusion that foreign troops will be under the complete control of Army personnel. However, I believe it is likely that the mass exterminations of the detainees will take place when the American military is withdrawn from the facilities. If there was any doubt as to the fact that our soon-to-be jailers will be foreign and will have no hesitation to carry out mass genocide, the following regulation from the document should remove all doubt.
N-48. Training programs are designed to prepare HN personnel to eventually train themselves. Indigenous trainers are the best trainers and should be used to the maximum extent possible.
For nearly four years, I have interviewed numerous eyewitnesses on my talk show about the presence of foreign troops (mostly Russian) training on American soil. Sherrie Wilcox has presented videotape and still photo evidence. Others have provided their firsthand accounts of these events. I have detailed the existence of a FEMA bilateral agreement with the Russians to bring in 15,000 soldiers for “disaster training”. And despite all the evidence, there are people who have roundly criticized The Common Sense Show for accurately claiming there are foreign troops on American soil. Those who have refused to look at the evidence owe my people an apology. Second, the “bury their head in the sand crowd” ,will never know what will hit them when all hell breaks loose.
New World Order Forces Preparing to Counter American Military Forces Fighting a Guerrilla War
Australia, Singapore, or America, There Is No Difference As to What Is Coming
In the first week of February, I published several documents pertaining to UWEX 16, including the following advertisement for “role players” in this “drill”. The drill involves the following:
Does anyone else find it interesting that your government is practicing to fight rogue elements of the of the US military who are engaged in a guerrilla war?
Pulling Out the Stops
Mark Zuckerberg censoring Donald Trump.
Can Donald Trump save America and the world from global depression and martial law? Alex Jones weighs in on this topic.
Facebook has revealed that they have the ability and permission to block Trump posts. That by itself, may not mean much except to reveal Facebook’s position in the NWO. However, this action may be designed to assist Hillary.
The Hillary Factor
The Hillary Factor
“I support Australia’s system of gun control”
One of Clinton’s main campaign positions is predicated on imitating the Australian gun control model.
The fallacy of Australian Gun Control
Isn’t it curious that Clinton would like to have the same impact on American individual security as will the Singapore military in Australia?
The game plan is apparent. World leaders will cross-match their troops in attempt to subjugate each other’s citizens who would dare to resist such things as gun confiscation efforts. In the past, Obama has made it clear he has access to Russians, Chinese and now even Cubans. Hillary Clinton has exposed her hand as she has announced she will implement gun confiscation, Australian style. Further, FEMA camps will ultimately be manned by foreign soldiers. By the way, Singapore’s pilots train at Luke Air Force Base (Glendale, AZ.) on American F-16’s. Isn’t that interesting?
I would say that Trump has his hands full.

By Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.
May 7, 2016
I always approach each edition of the National Rifle Association’s magazine, American Rifleman, with some little trepidation, because of the disturbing content that all too often crops up in its editorials. The latest edition (May 2016) has once again proven that I am not merely a victim of intellectual paranoia.
In his regular column, “Standing Guard”, the NRA’s Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre, advises his readers that “When it Comes to Gun Rights, 2016 Election Is About the Court, Too”. The thrust of the column is Mr. LaPierre’s reiteration of the necessity for the NRA’s supporters to “elect a president who believes and will fight for the Second Amendment”, as well as to “elect a [Charles] Schumer-proof United States Senate and maintain the current Second Amendment majority”. As I have explained in an earlier NewsWithViews commentary entitled “NRA, Second Amendment, and ‘We the People’”, reliance on elections alone (even if they are conducted honestly) is an inadequate means to “fight for the Second Amendment”. For instance, no candidate for “the Office of President” who fails to champion revitalization of the Militia is actually “fight[ing] for the second Amendment” to the full extent the Constitution requires. After all, how can a candidate for that office expect to fulfill his constitutional authority and responsibility as “Commander in Chief * * * of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States”, when for all practical purposes “the Militia of the several States” are moribund throughout this country? Is not such a candidate’s “Job One” to correct that situation? The answer being obvious, I shall not rehash that matter here.
More disquieting in Mr. LaPierre’s column is his critique of certain statements made by the Justices who dissented from the Supreme Court’s decisions in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago—namely, Justices Stevens, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Ginsburg. To be sure, their pronouncements certainly warrant scathing criticism, if not raucous ridicule. Unfortunately, Mr. LaPierre’s rejoinders are not much less faulty—perhaps, are even more indefensible, coming as they do from an ostensible proponent of the Second Amendment. He is not so much “standing guard” over the Amendment, as standing down from that purpose.
- Mr. Lapierre quotes Justice Stevens in Heller as contending that:
The Second Amendment was adopted to protect the right of the people of each of the several States to maintain a well regulated militia … there is no indication that the Framers of the Amendment intended to enshrine the common-law right of self-defense in the Constitution.
Now, no one who reads all twenty-seven words of the Second Amendment—not just the last fourteen, which the NRA emphasizes to the virtual exclusion of the first thirteen (a mistake, curiously enough, which Justice Stevens did not make)—can doubt that Justice Stevens was perfectly correct (albeit, I suspect, only accidentally so) to assert that “[t]he Second Amendment was adopted to protect the right of the people of each of the several States to maintain a well regulated militia”. Nonetheless, he missed the essential point: that, if the people have a right “to maintain a well regulated militia” in each State, then there must actually be, in each State, “[a] well regulated Militia”, organized according to constitutional principles drawn from pre-constitutional American history, in which Militia “the people” as a whole actually participate. The “right of the people” thus imposes a corresponding duty, not only on each of “the several States”, but also on the General Government (primarily, through Congress), to ensure that such Militia are fully enrolled, organized, armed, disciplined, and governed at all times. That “right of the people” is also a duty of “the people” to serve in such Militia, because constitutional Militia are establishments with near-universal compulsory membership. They are the only organizations the Constitution recognizes which are based upon a general “draft”. Full support for these assertions can be found in my book Constitutional “Homeland Security”, Volume Two, The Sword and Sovereignty (Front Royal, Virginia: CD-ROM Edition, 2012), and therefore need not be repeated here.
What Justice Stevens did not understand (or refused to acknowledge) is that, as Article 13 of Virginia’s Declaration of Rights (1776) made clear, “a well regulated militia” is “composed of the body of the people, trained to arms”. That means that every able-bodied adult American (other than conscientious objectors) not only must be suitably armed as an individual, but also must be trained to use his arms effectively in a collective effort in aid of the community’s self-defense. Of course, the guarantee that each and every eligible individual always possesses arms suitable for some kind of Militia service will also ensure that such arms are available at all times for every such individual’s personal self-defense. So, pace Justice Stevens, by “protect[ing] the right of the people * * * to maintain * * * well regulated militia”, “the Framers” did indeed “enshrine the common-law right of self-defense in the Constitution”, for individuals acting as individuals in their own personal defense as well as for individuals acting collectively in defense of the community.
We know this with apodictic certainty because the very first constitutional authority and responsibility of the Militia is “to execute the Laws of the Union”, as well as the laws of their own States. And self-defense—whether exercised on behalf of the community as a whole or of a single individual—is the execution of the very highest of all human laws. As Sir William Blackstone (no mean student of the common law) explained with respect to the “defence of one’s self”:
the law * * * makes it lawful in [an individual] to do himself that immediate justice, to which he is prompted by nature, and which no prudential motives are strong enough to restrain. It considers that the future process of law is by no means an adequate remedy for injuries accompanied with force; since it is impossible to say, to what wanton lengths of rapine or cruelty outrages of this sort might be carried, unless it were permitted a man immediately to oppose one violence with another. Self-defense, therefore, as it is justly called the primary law of nature, so it is not, neither can it be in fact, taken away by the law of society.
Commentaries on the Laws of England (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Robert Bell, 1772), Volume 3, at 3-4.
Self-evidently, then, individual self-defense is, in fact and law, a microcosmic example of the macrocosmic right and duty of the Militia to execute “the primary law of nature” (and vice versa). This should be obvious, too, from the Second Amendment. For “the security of a free State” could hardly exist if individuals were unable to protect themselves, as individuals, from lone aggressors to the selfsame extent that they were able to protect themselves, as a community, from concerted attacks by large numbers of domestic or foreign aggressors (and vice versa). “A well regulated Militia” defends the community. The community, however, is composed of individuals. So, in defending the community, the members of the Militia are defending themselves as individuals, too. And even when an individual is simply defending himself against a single attacker in an isolated confrontation, he is also defending the community, because he is executing the very highest law of the community against the aggressor under circumstances in which no one else can come to his aid.
It is understandable that someone such as Justice Stevens could be hopelessly confused on this score. What, though, is to be said of Mr. LaPierre, who attacks Justice Stevens’ statement as “that arrogant defamation of liberty—utterly denigrating the individual right to keep and bear arms”. Is it conceivable that for Justice Stevens to link “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms” with the Militia is an “arrogant defamation of liberty”, when the Second Amendment itself identifies “[a] well regulated Militia” as “necessary to the security of a free State”? Do individuals in “a free State” not enjoy “liberty”? And, if they do (as is incontestably the case), is not “[a] well regulated Militia * * * necessary to the security” of their “liberty”? Or is the Constitution wrong on that point? One wonders whether Mr. LaPierre has ever pondered such questions.
- Mr. LaPierre then quotes Justice Breyer’s dissent in McDonald:
“[T]he Framers did not write the Second Amendment in order to protect a private right of armed self-defense.” And “By its terms, the Second Amendment does not apply to the States; read properly, it does not even apply to individuals outside of the militia context.”
Justice Breyer fumed. “After all, the Amendment’s militia-related purpose is primarily to protect the States from federal regulation, not to protect individuals.”
Of course, Mr. LaPierre is fully justified in treating these statements as rank gibberish—
First, as explained above, the Second Amendment certainly does “protect a private right of armed self-defense”. Can even Justice Breyer believe that a member of the Militia, required by law to possess a firearm in his own home at all times, does not enjoy a “private right” to employ that firearm for personal self-defense, in addition to his right and duty as a member of the Militia to execute the law against whoever attacks him?
Second, to what vanishingly small set of citizens does the Second Amendment not apply, because the constituent individuals are “outside of the Militia context”? “A well regulated Militia” includes all able-bodied adults from, typically, 16 years of age on up. Only individuals convicted of the most serious crimes, and those who (although otherwise able-bodied) suffer from some disabling mental disease or defect, are excluded. (Conscientious objectors are not required to possess firearms, but must perform some other Militia service.)
Third, the right—and duty—of “the people to keep and bear Arms” so as to be able to serve in “well regulated Militia” must apply first and foremost to and in their own States, because the Militia are “the Militia of the several States”, not “the Militia of the United States”. Do not the States themselves enjoy a right and labor under a duty to provide in their own territories what the Constitution declares to be “necessary to the security of a free State” everywhere without exception throughout the Union? Is their “security” as “free State[s]” to be left to the mercies of errant public officials in the General Government? What if insouciant, incompetent, or disloyal officials of that government fail, neglect, or refuse to provide the requisite measures of “security”? Must “free State[s]” then collapse throughout the United States, with no recourse in self-help?
To be sure, Congress labors under the constitutional duty “[t]o provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia” for the purposes of “execut[ing] the Laws of the Union, suppress[ing] Insurrections and repel[ling] Invasions”. But what has it done to date (actually, since 1903)? It has consigned almost all Americans to the constitutionally oxymoronic “unorganized militia”, leaving them unprepared to perform any Militia service in defense of either their communities or themselves as individuals. Were the right and duty of “the people” to serve in “well regulated Militia” fully enforced by the States, though, Congress’s default would not matter to a critical degree, because Militia properly “well regulated” by their own States would be prepared to fulfill all of the responsibilities “necessary to the security of a free State”, including the three the Constitution specifies.
Fourth, the General Government’s only regulatory authority in the premises is to organize, arm, discipline, and train the Militia, and to govern such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, for one or more of the three explicit constitutional purposes quoted above, and for nothing else. The Constitution authorizes no other regulation—and most emphatically no regulation which directly violates “the supreme Law of the Land” by purporting to “unorganize” or “disarm” the Militia. Furthermore, an unconstitutional regulation of the Militia which harms the States necessarily harms “the body of the people” who make up the Militia, and therefore harms the vast majority of the able-bodied adult individuals who make up society. So, pace Justice Breyer, if the Second Amendment provides any protection at all, it assuredly “protect[s] individuals”.
But if Justice Breyer is all wet, does Mr. Lapierre stand on drier ground? Does Mr. LaPierre imagine that “the people” have no right to require their own States to maintain the very—indeed, the only—institutions which the Constitution declares to be “necessary to the security of a free State”? Are the States to be suffered to behave as other than “free State[s]” by simply dispensing with their Militia? One would hope not. Yet is this not the terminus to which acceptance of “the individual right to keep and bear arms”, so precious to Mr. LaPierre, now leads this country?
- Mr. LaPierre then scoffs at what he calls Justice Stevens’ “off-the-wall dissent” in McDonald:
Stevens wrote, “[T]he experience of other advanced democracies, including those that share our British heritage, undercuts the notion that an expansive right to keep and bear arms is intrinsic to ordered liberty. …
“[I]t is silly—indeed, arrogant—to think we have nothing to learn from the billions of people beyond our borders.”
Mr. LaPierre rightly derides this claptrap.
The laws of foreign nations are both irrelevant and impertinent with respect to how America’s Constitution should be construed and applied. As to foreign nations in general, I have written a book to that effect. How To Dethrone the Imperial Judiciary (San Antonio, Texas: Vision Forum Ministries, 2004). As to Great Britain in particular, immediately pre-constitutional American history provides a veritable library, culminating in the record of General Gage’s attempt to impose “gun control” on the Colonists in Lexington and Concord in 1775—the event memorialized, for example, as part of “A Declaration by the Representatives of the United Colonies of North America, now met in General Congress at Philadelphia, setting forth the causes and necessity of their taking up arms” (Thursday, 6 July 1775), Journals of the Continental Congress, Volume 2, at 150-151. (In this regard, Mr. LaPierre would do well to recall that Americans resisted British tyranny on 19 April 1775, not by anarchic exercises of some imaginary “individual right to keep and bear arms”, but by turning out in a collective fashion as Local units of the Militia of Massachusetts.)
Pace Justice Stevens, Americans’ first task must be to learn, not from foreign sources but from their own Constitution, what “liberty” means—and especially what institutions and practices are required to preserve it. The most important precept (because the Constitution singles it out) is that “[a] well regulated Militia”—not an imaginary “individual right to keep and bear arms”—is “necessary to the security of a free State”. Having learned that much, Americans can compare the state of “liberty” in their own country (in which a large proportion of the citizenry remains armed), with the general nonexistence of “liberty” in foreign nations (in which disarmament of the populace is the usual state of affairs). What America’s Founding Fathers understood as “liberty” under “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” may be slipping into an increasingly perilous condition in this country; but it is largely defunct almost everywhere else. What (in Justice Stevens’ words) “we have * * * to learn about liberty from the billions of people beyond our borders” is that the deterioration of “liberty” here and its elimination there are not mere accidents of history. They derive from disregard of the first thirteen words of the Second Amendment in this country, and from the absence of the entire text of that Amendment in the organic laws of other countries.
- Finally, Mr. LaPierre rightly chides Justice Ginsburg for once saying that she “would not look to the U.S. Constitution if [she] were drafting a constitution * * * . [She] might look to the Constitution of South Africa[.]” “You might ask,” writes Mr. LaPierre, “why would a U.S. Supreme Court justice prefer another constitution to that which was forged in Philadelphia more than 200 years ago?” The explanation as to Justice Ginsburg, no doubt, is that she subscribes to a legal and political ideology incompatible with—indeed, diametrically opposed to—the principles of America’s Constitution, and therefore “prefer[s] another constitution” of her own imagining. What, though, is the explanation as to Mr. LaPierre?
Exactly what constitution, informed by what legal and political ideology, does he prefer? Apparently, it is a constitution with no firm grounding in pre-constitutional American legal history, a constitution to be construed on the basis of an ideology which licenses its exponents to dissect the Second Amendment, to disregard if not discard the Amendment’s first thirteen words, to disrespect the judgment of the Founders that “[a] well regulated Militia” is “necessary to the security of a free State”, and to discourage the members of the NRA, as well as those sympathetic to it throughout this country, from associating themselves with the Militia in thought, word, and deed, except when they deny that the Militia have any significant relationship to “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms”.
Misinterpretations of the Constitution with such an undercurrent of animosity towards the Militia could be expected to be broadcast by a certain “poverty” law center, notorious for its rabid opposition to the Second Amendment. Why they keep emanating from the NRA, however, passes understanding. Perhaps it really is true that whom the gods would destroy they first make mad. Unfortunately, if allowed to fester much longer this particular madness will destroy, not only the NRA, but the rest of us as well.

There is no logic in a man as intellectually accomplished as Mr. Vieira when he ignores the true issue confronting American’s. Take this to the bank Dr. Vieira there is no active constitutional republic on this Continent, which negates any reliance on the Original Constitution for the United States of America. That Constitution was over-run by the Constitution of the United States of America, and followed by several versions of privately owned Corporations, which is why we have NEVER had a militia of the several states, and never will due to the IGNORANCE of the people. UNLESS a hundred million people read this book, absolute tyranny is just around the corner.
