DOD Inspector General Unmasks Military Study
The Department of Defense Inspector General has charged that the White House study evaluating the impact of open homosexuality on the military was a fraud and that the conclusions used to convince Congress that there would be no serious damage done to military preparedness were false.
It should not come as a surprise by now that the Obama Administration would engage in deception to pass legislation harmful to national security, the healthcare of most Americans, and the economy. President Obama and his close allies in Congress have consistently placed radical social change and socialist ideology far above national security, fiscal responsibility, and traditional American values. On healthcare, immigration, military preparedness, foreign policy, and other issues, the President seems to have little regard for truth. Early in the Senate hearings on repealing DADT (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell), Senator Jeff Sessions (R, AL) accused the President’s Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mullen, of preordaining the results to suit the President’s wishes.
The White House promised the military that a survey of 400,000 military personnel would be taken seriously. However, the conclusions of the study were written and shown to a “former news anchor” three days before any troops were even surveyed. The survey questions were also slanted to get the results the President wanted to show. Many critical issues were ignored, as were previous data and conclusions from the 1993 DADT study. Unfortunately for the Obama Administration, the 2010 report was also leaked to Elaine Donnelly, President of the Center for Military Readiness (CMR).
Using the same data, the CMR showed that the White House’s conclusions were contrary to what factual data had been collected. Moreover, the study did not even address many substantial problems that senior military officers believe might seriously degrade U.S. military morale, preparedness, and combat effectiveness. For example, no consideration was given to differences between combat operations and support operations. The fact that the CMR did not have access to the report except by leak ought also to ring some alarm bells about the administration’s openness
As I pointed out last week, much of the Obama Team’s persuasion was based on iffy anecdotal stories rather than solid statistics and analysis. In addition, White House spokespersons have tried to make military service a civil right trumping military effectiveness. This wild-liberal type of thinking could seriously jeopardize not only military effectiveness, but also the lives of thousands of soldiers, sailors, and airmen, and the freedom and safety of millions of American civilians. No one has a right to be a soldier, Marine, or pilot, any more than they have to be starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.
According to World Net Daily, the Obama Administration deliberately leaked a false statistic to put Congress in a favorable mood to repeal DADT. The leak was that 70 percent of military personnel were either favorable or neutral to open homosexuality in the military. The CMR showed that the data actually indicated that 82 percent of military personnel considered the proposed changes to be negative or neutral. This would indicate that no more than 18 percent of military personnel are actually favorable to open homosexuality in the military.
Thinking people should also note the analytically incompetent and deceptive bunching of positive and negative opinions with neutral opinions. In addition, many military personnel felt pressured not to be negative on the change.
Just before passage of the DADT repeal, the Obama Administration sent in a high ranking black Army general to lecture and intimidate field grade officers and high ranking NCOs into going along with the change, indicating compliant thinking would be necessary for a successful career. His message was that allowing openly gay and lesbian lifestyles in the military was comparable to the civil rights movement of the 1960s. At least one courageous black senior NCO protested this comparison during one of the general’s lectures. Most others, however, listened in resentful or intimidated silence. The new rules will have zero tolerance penalties for discrimination against LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered) personnel.
The 1993 DADT study brought up several important considerations that were not addressed by the 2010 study.
Given the high cost of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases associated with homosexual lifestyles, what would be the fiscal impact on military healthcare and the Veterans Administration?
- What would be the cost of additional litigation by homosexual activists?
- What would be the moral impact on chaplains and others with strong traditional moral and religious convictions? Would it discourage traditional-minded Christians from serving in the military?
- What costs would be necessary to prevent unwanted sexual advances?
- Will strict compliance to politically correct acceptance and enforcement of homosexual “civil rights” devastate heterosexual recruitment and retention? Independent polls, including Zogby, indicate that this will be a sizable problem.
The Obama Administration and homosexual activist groups have made much of favorable public opinion polls of adults—not necessarily voters or even citizens. However, basing critical military decisions on polling people who have no military
experience ought to be seen for what it is—stupid and dangerous.
The Obama Administration and supporting homosexual activist groups have proudly pointed to 25 nations that allow open homosexuality in their military. The armies of most of these nations, however, rely on the United States for their defense, and could not stand up to the Chinese, Russians, or Iranians for 48 hours on their own. Every citizen is required to do military service in Israel, and the Germans, French, and British have encountered significant problems.
President Obama is destroying our military capability and effectiveness. Once lost, they will not be easy to fix.
Along with the VA no longer allowing Prayer at military funerals, my guess is that
Obama wants all Christians out of the military so when Martial Law is activated there
won't be any reluctance to kill Americans protesters.

WHY DO FOOLS PREFER LIES?
READthe yellow highlighted sections posted below this message.
FACT: Truth is inconvenient. It causes individuals to become uncomfortable with what they know.
COMMENT: Per a question to me last Saturday, I am rerunning two Interrogatories for those who need-to-know. According to the research in legal and academic circles, the Zionists are Jesuits who are under the control of the Vatican/King of England/The Crown (i.e., Jesuit Rothchild bankers). They created the modern state of Israel, through the communist/Jesuit controlled United Nations . ..for the PURPOSE of using the Jews as a shield for their activities, which is creating the New World Order. They have always used the Jewish people as a shield . .. because the Jewish religion makes the Jew convenient. The Protestant and Catholic memberships are totally ignorant of this fact and will always defend the Jews; thereby, providing security for the military wing of the Vatican, who is undermining every nation on earth. The Jesuit General has his office in the US Pentagon . . . His name is Adolfo Nicholas Pachon…

Interrogatories about the Constitution and American Law
By R.E. Sutherland, M.Ed./sciences
OBJECTIVE:If you do not know where you came from, then you certainly cannot know where you are going. It is time to review history and pull together some of the lesser known facts for edification and purification of what America was, is and chooses to become. Seek the Truth, and then you will become aware of the shackles on your ankles and the blinders on your eyes.
QUOTE:“The reason why [deception cannot be forced on an Individual] is because deception has to be first created, then conveyed, and then accepted by others – then only can deception succeed. Deception can only find fertility in a human mind to the extent that mind is receptive to it; similarly, in a sense, it actually takes two people to manufacture a successful lie: the first to utter the lie, and the second to accept it as such.” –1985, Invisible Contracts, by George Mercier.
1. Who funded the grants for the land development in the original 13 Colonies?
ANSWER:There were several entities involved in exploring America, but the King of England was the point of contact. Other countries said that they had claim to lands; however, they were not clever enough to get the paperwork straight, nor were they strong enough to defend their legal Claim; hence, they lost both the legal and physical battle for occupation of America.
2. What were the names, founding dates, and connections to the King of England by the original 13 colonies?
[SOURCE: World Book Encyclopedia (WBE)]
1067-Virginia – Charter by King to the Virginia Company of London
1620-Massachusetts – Charter granted by the King to the Puritans
1623-New Hampshire – King appointed Council of New England for settlement
1624-New York – Charter by King to Duke of York
1622-Connecticut – Charter by King to John Winthrop
1634-Maryland – Charter by King to Lord Baltimore
1636-Rhode Island – King granted “Charter of Rhode Island & Providence Plantations”
1638-Delaware – Charter by King to Duke of York
1643-Pennsylvania – Grant by King to William Penn
1653-North Carolina – Grant by King to Sir Robert Heath
1660-New Jersey – Grant by King to Duke of York
1670-South Carolina – Grant by King to Eight “Lords Proprietors”
1733-Georgia – Grant by King to a Corporation entitled: “Trustees for Establishing the Colony of Georgia in America
3. Who owned the colonies?
ANSWER: The legal contracting documents for the colonies were of three types, but all of them were under the direction of the King of England:
(a) royal – under the direct control of the King
(b) proprietary-under the control of a Proprietor, an appointed by the King
(c) corporate-under a charter obtained from the King of England by a company with stockholders. [SOURCE: WBE]
4. Did each colony have its own form of government?
ANSWER:Each colony had a governor and a legislature; however, the King of England appointed the governor over the royal colonies. In proprietary colonies, the King appointed the Proprietor, who appointed the governor. In Connecticut and Rhode Island the people elected the governor; however, Connecticut was under the Fundamental Orders until it received a royal charter in 1662 and Rhode Island was under the English charter of 1663, which served as its constitution. [SOURCE: WBE]
5. Did the colonies have laws?
ANSWER:The laws that were passed by any of the colonial legislatures had to be approved by the English government. Governors appointed by the King had the responsibility of carrying out his orders. The King expected them to enforce the laws of England, especially acts of Parliament that regulated colonial trade. [SOURCE: WBE]
6. Did Christopher Columbus discover and claim any of the original 13 colonies for Spain or Portugal?
ANSWER:No. Columbus traveled around the areas of Jamaica, Costa Rica, Panama, etc. [SOURCE: WBE]
7. What is a Commodity Exchange?
ANSWER: “Commodity exchanges are voluntary trade associations. They are called organized markets, because all members must follow certain trading rules. All business, for example, must be conducted on the trading floor within certain hours. Rules set the commission (fee) that may be charged in a transaction, and the time within which payment must be made.” [SOURCE: WBE]
8. Did the colonies have connections to a Commodity Exchange in England?
ANSWER: Yes, It was called the Board of Trade (1621-1970)
“The1621 Privy Council, directed by the King, ‘to take into their consideration, the true causes of the decay of trade and scarcity of coin within the Kingdom and to consult the means for the removing of these inconveniences.’ As a result a committee of inquiry was set up named ‘The Committee of Privy Council for Trade and Foreign Plantations’ (this is still the formal title of the ‘Board of Trade’) and this committee can be regarded as the germ of the Board of Trade.”
“Throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, trade matters remained the responsibility of Privy Council Committees. In 1696 William III set up a body of eight paid Commissioners ‘for promoting the trade of our Kingdom and for inspecting and improving our plantations in America and elsewhere.’”
9. Does the word “plantation” mean a large farming enterprise?
ANSWER: No. The definition found in Burke onConciliation of the Colonies stated, “Plantations–colonies; the plantings of a new society or race. The term is regularly so used in Acts and Charters, and has no reference whatever to cultivation of the soil.”
10. Did the King of England operate on his own as a free agent in the creation of the colonies?
ANSWER:No. The King of England was bound to the Treaty of 1213. The following brief history explains who was actually in charge of the colonies.
[ INTRO: The King refused to accept Stephen Langton as the Archbishop of Canterbury by Pope Innocent III in 1208, and the King was excommunicated from the Catholic Church by the Pope for his disobedience to contractual agreements to the Crown. The Pope and the King owed money to the Crown bankers, so the Pope had to reign in a naughty King in order to avoid default to The Crown.]
“Faced with defeat by the forces aligned against him by the Vatican, King John ran for cover, and sought to regain the support of the Pope. He returned the title to his kingdoms of England and Ireland to the Pope, as vassals, swore submission and loyalty to him, accepted Langton as Archbishop of Canterbury, and offered the Pope a vassal’s bond of fealty and homage, an annual tribute of 1,000 marks (equivalent to a bit more than 666 pounds sterling) and the return of the Church property he had seized when he had rebelled against it.
“Two months later, in July 1213, King John was: absolved of excommunication, at Winchester, by the return Arch Bishop of Canterbury Langton.
“Three months later, on October 3, 1213, King John ratified his surrender of his kingdoms to the Pope, who by virtue of his position as Vicar of Christ claims ownership of everything and everyone, on earth in the tradition of the Nazarene-Communist supercapitalist superdictatorship that is true fundamentalist Christianity.
“On April 21, 1214, the Pope, in Rome, formally accepted King John’s surrender of his kingdoms and his pledge of vassal (together with the moneys paid in tribute); and three months later, in July 1214, Pope Innocent III raised the interdict against the English.
“Thus the Pope assured the English of ‘access to Heaven,’ from which they had been ‘barred’ by their king’s opposition to the church’s Nazarene, or Communist, totalitarianism and denial of civil rights to mankind.”
[SOURCE: British Museum Publication G. R. C. Davis, entitled Magna Carta (211), and American Counsel of Christian Laymen: How Red is The Federal Counsel of Churches.]
11. Did the Treaty of 1213 actually affect the ownership of the colonies?
ANSWER:The Vatican owned the colonies, but let the King serve as the manager for the enterprise. The Vatican was busy fighting Crusades and expanding The Kingdom.
12. What did the Treaty of 1213 actually say?
ANSWER:The original Treaty of 1213 is located in the London Archives and is available to Ph.D.s; however, a copy of a translation has been made available. It remains in power to this day. It states:
QUOTE:“The King’s Concessions of May 15, 1213 to the Pope–“We wish it to be known to all of you, through this our charter, furnished with our seal, that inasmuch as we had offended in many ways God and our mother the holy church, and in consequence are known to have very much needed the divine mercy, and can not offer anything worthy for making due satisfaction to God and to the church unless we humiliate ourselves and our kingdoms: we, wishing to humiliate ourselves for Him who humiliated Himself for us unto death, the grace of the Holy Spirit inspiring,not induced by force or compelled by fear, but of our own good and spontaneous will and by the common counsel of our barons, do offer and freely concede to God and His holy apostles Peter and Paul and to our mother the holy Roman church, and to our lord pope Innocent and to his Catholic successors, the whole kingdom of England and the whole kingdom Ireland, with all their rights and appurtenances, for the remission of our sins and of those of our whole race as well for the living as for the dead; and now receiving and holding them, as it were a vassal, from God and the Roman church, in the presence of that prudent man Pandulph, subdeacon and of the household of the lord pope Innocent, and his catholic successors and the Roman church, according to the form appended; and in the presence of the lord pope, if we shall be able to come before him, we shall do liege homage to him;binding our successors aid our heirs by our wife forever, in similar manner to perform fealty and show homage to him who shall be chief pontiff at that time, and to the Roman church without demur. Concessions of May 15, 1213 to the Pope.” [END QUOTE]
End of Part 1
OBJECTIVE: If you do not know where you came from, then you certainly cannot know where you are going. It is time to review history and pull together some of the lesser known facts for edification and purification of what America was, is and chooses to become. This is important.
13. Who were the members of the British Board of Trade?
ANSWER: The Board included agents of the King of England, members of the Privy Council (i.e., legislative bodies), and the Archbishop of Canterbury who represented the Church of England. [SOURCE: World Book Encyclopedia (WBE)]
14. Were Jews allowed on the Board of trade?
ANSWER: No. The Board refused to allow either the Lombards or the Jewish moneylenders onto their Board. They were segregated because their religious rules made them useful for the Board. The following quote is an excellent explanation.
QUOTE: The Federal Reserve Conspiracy and Rockefeller (1952)
By Emanuel Josephson
“Since commerce and money are the livelihoods of nations and their peoples, the control of money is the obvious key to the control of nations and the world. …Rome’s successor the Holy Roman Empire dissimulated its interest in money and its power. This was in accord with its professed tenets of Nazarene, theistic Communism.
“Under ecclesiastic Canon Law, even profits in business transactions were decreed to be the cardinal sin and capital offense of ‘usury’ As late as the sixteenth century, one hundred businessmen were burned at the stake in Geneva, as a penalty under Church law, for making profits in their business transactions. Title to all wealth , as well as to the person and lives of all the earth, are claimed by the Church, on the ground that their ownership is divinely vested in the Pope as the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth.
“Thus theistic, Nazarene Communism, and the ‘modern’ religion that goes by the name of Communism and is supposedly atheist, both are basically supercapitalist and both mask their grab for money and wealth.
“Title to all wealth was vested in the Church and in its champion ‘knights,’ who at the same time assumed the role of so-called ‘protectors,’ much like the present day labor leaders of their vassals whom they mercilessly enslaved and looted.
“Both Churchmen and lay knights used the despised Jews for the conduct of their usurious financial operations, in order to avoid ‘sinning’ and the death penalty that it involved. The Jews proved very useful and handy for that purpose. Their use was justified by their ‘CHRISTIAN’ masters in a manner that they were taught by their faith was incontrovertible. Jews were damned and doomed by their faith and their failure to accept the divinity of Jesus and the perversion of His teachings by the Jewish merchant, Saul of Tarsus, alias St. Paul, opined the Churchmen; and therefore, it was ‘good work’ to hasten them to damnation.
“This they did by forcing their Jewish serfs to engage, as their pawns, in the ‘sin’ and ‘crime’ of ‘usury’ by which was meant the charging of interest as well as loan sharking and engaging in profitable commerce, for their Christian, ecclesiastical bosses.
“Often the Churchmen barred the Jews, by their orders and laws, from engaging in any other vocation than those to which the stigma of usury was attached, especially loan-sharking, as their agents. This was a particular advantageous set up for the Churchmen. For if the Jew was merciful and failed to extract from the victims everything that they possessed (i.e., the last drop of blood), he was burned at the stake as a ‘heretic.’
“On the other hand, if the Jew mercilessly followed orders of his priestly boss, was honest with his boss and amassed a fortune for him and for himself, there was nothing to bar his Christian master from exercising his cupidity and robbing his faithful loan-shark by charging him with the ‘sin’ of usury, confiscating the fortune he had made in his service, and with great hypocritic show of ‘piety,’ burn him at the stake—‘to ensure his salvation.’
“The victorious Lombard invaders of the Holy Roman Empire changed the financial situation in much the same manner as have the latter day Maffia extortioners and blackmailers. Seizing control of the Church, they gave themselves ‘dispensation’ to disregard the Canon Law on usury. They openly engaged in it from the very steps of the Vatican.
“Dispensation from the Canon on Usury was subsequently granted by the Vatican, in the 15th century, to the German Fuggers, the Rockefellers of that era. Their profits from commerce, usury and the sale of papal dispensations, as agents of the Vatican, grew rapidly, as did their ‘payoff’ to the church. They were heaped with Papal honors. Both their grasping greed and merciless loan-sharking earned for them distrust and terror. When one of their number was elevated to the rank of Cardinal, the Churchmen feared that the Fuggers would reach out and steal the Vatican itself. They then decided that their Jewish pawn were more completely at their mercy, more amenable and safer.
“Trusteeship of the fortune of one of the wealthiest Christian rulers of Europe, whose confidence had been earned by honest and trustworthy dealings during the Napoleonic wars, is the source of the wealth and influence that the Rothechilds acquired in the first decades of the 19th century.
“Subsequently, after making a large loan to the hard pressed Vatican, that no Christian would consider making, they became the fiscal agents of the Vatican, received Papal decorations and preferments, and enforced the policies dictated by the Church. It was largely in this sense that they were ‘international bankers.’ And the policies dictated by them were in effect the policies dictated by the Church. They enforced those policies through their establishments in many lands.
“An amusing story is told of the earliest relations of the Rothschilds with the Vatican. The Vatican found itself short of ready cash after almost half a century of war waged on it for the Jesuit Order by one of its unordained members, Adam Weishaupt, to avenge its abolition, in 1773, as ‘immoral and a menace to the Church and the Faith’ by short lived Pope Clement XIV in his Papal breve Dominus Ac Redemptor.
“Weishaupt and his fellow Jesuits cut off the income to the Vatican by launching and leading the French Revolution; by directing Napoleon’s conquest of Catholic Europe; by the revolt against the Church led by such priests as Father Hidalgo, in Mexico and Latin America; by eventually having napoleon throw Pope Pius Vii in jail at Avignon until he agreed, as the price for his release, to reestablish the Jesuit Order. This Jesuit war on the Vatican was terminated by the Congress of Vienna and by the secret, 1822 Treaty of Verona. . .
“The Rothschilds sought to extend their financial and political dominion to the United States, for themselves primarily to serve their Vatican masters. The Vatican’s interest in the U.S. Republic was clearly revealed in the Treaty of Verona, in which the Jesuit Order pledged itself, as the price of reestablishment, to destroy ‘the works of Satan’ that it had accomplished in setting up, by revolts, representative governments such as republics and so called ‘democracies.’
“Senator Robert Owen pointed out, in the Senate, that the prime target to which the Vatican and the ‘Holy Alliance’ directed the subversive and destructive activities of the Society of Jesus is the United States, [See Congressional Record, April 25, 1916], as well as other republics in the Western Hemisphere. This plot, he related, was the target at which the Monroe Doctrine was directed.
“The Rothschild-Vatican cabal unsuccessfully attempted to gain control over the power of the purse in the U.S. through the First and Second Bank of the United States. They were established under the emergency powers granted the President by the Constitution, as temporary institutions to tide the country through the periods of financial stress occasioned by the Revolutionary and 1812 Wars.” [END QUOTE]
15. Did the original 13 colonies have a court system?
QUOTE: “Encyclopedia of American History – “in 1697 the British Board of Trade, under the Navigation Act, established vice-admiralty courts in all the colonies. These courts had jurisdiction over Trade, ordinary maritime cases as well as prize. It even granted jurisdiction by the Act of 1722 over infringements concerning timber. These Admiralty courts, set up under the Townshend Acts, centered final control in America.” [Source: The New History of America, by The Informer, page 4]
16. What were the types of jurisdiction assigned to the courts in the colonies?
ANSWER: Admiralty and maritime.
QUOTE:“Admiralty, by Benedict, 1850:
“Its necessary effect [the Act] was, however, to start the courts on that system of practice, and really to impose upon them, in admiralty and maritime cases, the civil law practice, as that under which they must continue to administer justice, even after the expiration of that act, until further provision could be made.”
“Section 105–The Purpose of the Constitutional Grant–The Essential Harmony of the Maritime Law. The grand purpose of the Constitution was to unify the several states , the whole people, in their national, international, and interstate relations and all other purposes were subordinate and ancillary to this.
“Section 123 – The commission to the Governor as Vice-Admiral was very full, granting, in language so clear that it cannot be misunderstood, an admiralty jurisdiction as wide and beneficial as the most zealous supporters of the English Admiralty ever claimed for it.”
17. What is the legal meaning of the word: “federal”?
ANSWER:The word “federal” simply put means “contract.”
QUOTES:From The American College Dictionary, 1947:
“Federal – 1. Of or pertaining to a compact or a league, esp. a league between nations or states.”
“Compact–an agreement between parties; a covenant; a contract.”
NOTE:The more modern dictionaries are missing the original definitions as the university professors began to reshape society by gradually changing the definitions of words our students learn and use.
18. Did Commercial Contracts in the United States evolve from something else?
QUOTEfrom Section 065, “Invisible Contracts,” by George Mercier:
“Here in the United States, in a Commercial contract factual setting, the word ‘covenant’ is an Old English Law Merchant origin, and now means only a few clauses within a larger contract. . .”
19. Is there a difference between Government commerce and Private commerce in law?
QUOTEfrom Section 387, “Invisible Contracts,” by George Mercier:
“Admiralty Jurisdiction is the KING’S COMMERCE of the High Seas . .. But as for that slice of Commerce going out on the High Seas without the King as a party, that Commerce is called Maritime Jurisdiction, and so Maritime is the private Commerce that transpires in a marine environment. At least, that distinction between Admiralty and Maritime is the way things once were, but no more.”
20. Do Admiralty courts still exist today?
ANSWER:Yes, it is the United States Federal Court system.
“This is the type of court that exists today and why we cannot bring a pure Article of the Bill of Rights argument into a contract [i.e., federal] court of the Law-Merchant in their civil law. As Benedict states at Section 5,” . .. The civil law was held to be the law of admiralty, and the course of proceedings in admiralty, closely resembled the civil law practice.” All maritime revenue cases, whether State or United States, deals in contract. …
[Source: The New History of America, by The Informer, page 5.]
QUOTEfrom Section 049, “Invisible Contracts,” by George Mercier.
“In such administrative enforcement proceedings under grievances arising out of privileges and contracts that Congress created, Federal Judges are acting MINISTERIALLY as Legislative Court, functioning as an extension of the agency for the King, and not Judicially as an Article III Court acting like neutral and disinterested referees calling the shots as umpires between adversaries; and so some steps taken by the Judge acting MINISTERIALLY, to shorten the proceedings or otherwise silence the Defendant when irrelevant subject matter is being discussed, are largely non-reversible on appeal. In Northern Pipeline vs Marathon Pipe Line ]458 U.S. 50 (1982)], the Supreme Court ruled that Congress can create non-Article III LEGISLATIVE COURTS in three areas: Territorial Courts, Military Courts Martial, and in disputes involving privileges that Congress created in the first place [MARATHON, id., at pages 64 et seq.]. Participating in that closed private domain of King’s [government] Commerce is very much accepting and benefitting from a privilege created by Congress.
“A case in admiralty does not, in fact, arise under the Constitution or Laws of the United States.”
American Ins. Co. V Canter, 1 Pet. 511, 545 (1828).
QUOTE: “We don’t use the word constitution in this court,” said the Aiken Federal Judge during a hearing for a Freedom of Information Act violation in the City of Aiken. This author was the Plaintiff, and was awarded damages for the failure of the city to give information per the FOIA, but no discussion about the constitutional merits of the case were allowed to be discussed..
21. The U.S. Constitution states in Article I, Section 8, “The Congress shall have Power . .. To borrow Money on the credit of the United States; . .. To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures”. So, why is there also paper money if it is not constitutional?
ANSWER: It all began in 1751 with the English Parliament.
QUOTEfrom Source: The New History of America, by The Informer, page 7:
“In March of 1751, the British Board of Trade presented Parliament with a Restraining Act, which barred the Colonies, by law, from issuing paper money and letters of Credit. This gave the King’s orders the validity of formal law. The Colonies didn’t buy it, for it destroyed their control of the trade. You see, there was no gold or silver being mined in America. They had to rely on gold and silver from other countries. England had most of the gold.
“On July 10, 1754, the Confederacy was born because of this, so they could issue paper money, only on their joint order. Ben Franklin had long advocated this.
“In March of 1775, the Pennsylvania Assembly borrowed money and issued bills of Credit without authorization of either King of Governor. The Board of Trade tried another ploy and said that Gold and Silver have intrinsic value, and therefore, should be used by the Colonies. Because of ‘them’ issuing ‘paper money’ it ‘ruins the Colonies,’ so said the Tories.
“Now get this people, Franklin replied to the contrary saying that paper money served as a medium of exchange and credit had made possible the growth of the Colonies and their trade. He told the Board of Trade that the Tories argued that the paper money issued by the colonies was a dilution of their control of wealth.
“This explains why the federal government is denied the power to issue currency other than coin or to set up or charter banks. But they do it under ‘emergency power.’ This is why the present day private Federal Reserve System, counterpart of the British Board of Trade, runs this country today.
“Now you know why the Crown initiated the coin only clause in the Constitution, so the private bankers could control the paper credit. Paper is NOT money.”
QUOTEfrom Section 390, “Invisible Contracts,’ by George Mercier:
“However, today in the United States, all Commercial contracts that private parties enter into with each other that are under Maritime Jurisdiction, are now also under Admiralty: Reason: the beneficial use and reticulation of Federal Reserve Notes makes the King [government] an automatic silent Equity third party to the arrangements.”

Disclaimer:These interrogatories are not intended as legal advice, nor do they offer any political suggestions to the reader. All verification is left to the reader. The interrogatories by this author are an academic attempt to digest the evidence and instruction found in many sources, and especially in two books entitled: The Myth and The Reality; and A New History for America. The Informer has displayed tremendous intellectual fortitude with his serious scientific analysis of the evidence throughout written history of the events up to, during, and following the Revolutionary War. The conclusions are breath-taking upon the first reading, because the evidence demands huge paradigm shifts in knowledge structure and assumption.

ADDENDUM – Adolpho Nicholas Pachon
Fr. Adolfo Nicholas chosen Jesuit Leader
Fr. Adolfo Nicolas, SJ is the new world-wide leader of the Society of Jesus succeeding Fr. Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, 79, who had asked to resign because of his age.
Fr. Nicolas was elected Superior General Jan. 19 at General Congregation 35, which has gathered Jesuits from around the globe to elect a new superior and discern and discuss the work and procedures of the Society in the future. Spanish-born Fr. Nicolas, 71, was the moderator of the Jesuit Conference of East Asia and Oceania. He was ordained to the priesthood in Tokyo and is the former Jesuit provincial of Japan. He also had served as director of the East Asian Pastoral Institute in Manila.
"About the future there is little I can say," Fr. Nicolas said in his first meeting with the media. "The reason is simple: I have just begun. When in the Congregation meeting they speak of Father General, I always think they mean Fr. Kolvenbach; I do not yet realize that it is me. My current attitude is to listen, listen and obey. As you know, the General Congregation has authority over Fr. General. During the General Congregation I am subject to the Congregation. If the Congregation tells me what needs to be done, what direction to take in the future, I should obey, that is my mission. Therefore what is important to me now is to know what the General Congregation wishes; as well as how to respond to the challenges that the Holy Father has sent us, about which we are reflecting very seriously, so as to give a response that can help the Church, not ourselves. I hope to meet with the Holy Father soon whenever he calls me to have an initial meeting. After all this, when the Congregation Fathers have gone, I will begin to work, to see how to respond and make all of this into reality."
The election by the 217 Jesuits came after four days of prayer, silence and quiet one-on-one conversations among the voting delegates, who were chosen to represent the more than 19,000 Jesuits around the world.
Fr. Thomas H. Smolich, SJ president of the Jesuit Conference of the United States, told Catholic News Service that Fr. Nicolas "is a great man. He is inspirational, he is holy and he represents a great bridge among the various cultures in the church."
The resignation of Fr. Kolvenbach and the election of Fr. Nicolas was just the beginning of the General Congregation's work; as it will focus on questions of Jesuit identity and governance, vocations, mission and collaboration with the laity.
Born April 29, 1936, in Palencia, Spain, Father Nicolas entered the Jesuit novitiate in 1953. After earning a degree in philosophy in Spain, he was sent to Japan to study theology. He was ordained a priest in Tokyo in 1967. After earning a master's degree in theology from the Jesuit-run Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, he returned to Japan and taught systematic theology at Sophia University in Tokyo.
In 1978-84 he was director of the East Asian Pastoral Institute in Manila. In 1991-1993 he was rector of the program for Jesuit scholastics in Japan, and in 1993 he was appointed provincial for Japan. Before being named moderator of the Jesuit Conference of East Asia and Oceania in 2004, he spent three years working in a poor immigrant parish in Tokyo, living with and ministering to Filipino and other Asian immigrants.
Father Nicolas speaks Spanish, Japanese, English, French and Italian.

Managerialist America … Mark Roe … a professor at Harvard Law School, asks how capitalist America really is- in a stimulating Project Syndicate piece. Mr. Roe suggests that the level of state ownership of capital, or the level of government intervention in the economy, may offer a misleading picture of America's political economy. – The Economist
Dominant Social Theme: America is not as free as it seems to be. The government needs to pass laws to empower shareholders. Then shareholders will run corporations and America's Constitutional republic shall blossom once more.
Free-Market Analysis: The Economist is a miserable, elitist newspaper; its standards continue to decline. Read the first sentence, above (excerpted). The professor "asks how capitalist America really is." What does that mean? How America really IS? The colloquialism is so inexact that we had to read the sentence three or four times before we decided it wasn't some sort of typo.
Then there's the anonymity that The Economist continues to adopt. Anonymity has an ancient and respectable history, but The Economist regularly runs anonymous first person articles. This is ludicrous. This column, "American politics – Democracy in America," provides us with the following sentence: "To my mind, all this suggests a structural antagonism not between the rich and the not-rich, but between the corporate managerial class, the diffuse crowd of individuals who actually own the companies the managerial class so jealously control, and the rest of us …"
Whose mind is this exactly? The Economist isn't telling, or if it is, we couldn't find the byline. Usually, anonymous articles, if they introduce a personal perspective, do so using "we." This is how the New Yorker offered its witty, anonymous columns. But to run an anonymous first-person column is a kind of literary degradation in our view. Sure, it's done – but why? It's a perversion of the anonymity that the magazine seeks to use.
The Economist is increasingly perverse in any case. As a publication that was once, a hundred years ago, republican and is now a solidly ensconced elitist mouthpiece, The Economist has come on hard times from an editorial standpoint. During the current resurgence of free-market thinking, The Economist is in the unenviable position (as a self-styled thought-leadership magazine) of having to square the proverbial circle.
It has to pretend to be free-market oriented when in fact it is entirely corporatist. It is through corporations and capitalism that the powers-that-be disguise their authoritarian and anti-freedom agenda, and nowhere is this more evident and obvious than in the pages of this eminent publication.
It is, in fact, a major dominant social theme of the Anglosphere power elite – that corporations and capitalism are analogous to free-market, agrarian republicanism. We sometimes use capitalism interchangeably with free-markets, but we shouldn't. Capitalism has some fairly specific overtones and the two terms are increasingly differentiated.
A free-market is simply that, an untrammeled venue. Capitalism is much different. Capitalism implies corporatism, and the corporate state. Corporations are essentially artificial creatures, brought to life by judicial decision-making. In a free-market republic, corporations likely wouldn't exist. Business, as we have pointed out before, would have a partnership orientation (as it once did). Commerce would be a good deal more accountable.
Corporatism is in fact the great bane of free markets. Corporations shove free-markets toward gigantism and away from transparency. Without corporations, business would likely be conducted by flexible linkages of entrepreneurial partnerships. That's not how The Economist sees things, though. For Economist journos and big thinkers, capitalism CONSTITUTES a free market. The problem from The Economist's perspective is how to rationalize capitalism so that it can be further perfected.
In fact, anybody who wants to look at Western society would conclude that both Europe and America are increasingly authoritarian, police states. Corporations function within consumerist parameters set by federal governments. (See other article, this issue.) The Economist sees none of this. "One might infer that America is very capitalist," the article informs us. Really? "Capital largely controls the economy," the article adds." This is true, though the bigger question is … who controls the capital?
That's not an issue The Economist is ever likely to touch. What does concern the writer of this column, whoever he/she is, is that the current system become ever-more amenable to marketplace dictates. To this end, it quotes Mark Roe's recent research approvingly.
What concerns Roe apparently is that the ownership of capital is often extremely diffuse, "spread over many thousands of shareholders." Thus, these shareholders really have little say over the corporations they own. "The people with real power are the class of managers and executives," Roe writes disapprovingly.
Being a sincere sort, Roe wants to fix this. What America has now, he believes is a "managerial" society and he wants to give power back to the "owners." He is dissatisfied with things as they are. "The law is clear: the corporation's board of directors, not its shareholders, runs the business," he observes. Managers are insulated from market authority.
There are problems with such a managerialist society. "Managers of established firms continue money-losing ventures for too long, pay themselves too much relative to their and the company's performance, and too often fail to act aggressively enough to enter new but risky markets. "
What's the solution? "An 'ownership society' worth the name would both increase shareholders control in corporate governance and make it much easier to push out incumbent managers by means of 'hostile' takeovers."
Actually, Roe doesn't come right out and say this in the article from which The Economist column is drawn. But the conclusion is warranted; Roe implies this solution in his own article.
Ironically – there are so very many ironies inherent in modern regulatory democracy – the solution to managerial-capitalist excess is to be found not in the market but in … government regulatory authorities!
It is very clear from both The Economist column and Roe's article that the Securities and Exchange Commission in particular would have to change the rules to make corporations more responsive to shareholders.
This conclusion of course is not surprising. America has traveled almost as far away from a free-market economy as the rest of the West at this point. Between a plethora of licenses, lack of available capital, aggressive regulation, environmental laws, terrorist "concerns," hyper-active taxation and central-bank initiated price-inflation, there is not much leeway left for someone who wishes to work entrepreneurially within the system as it's constituted.
There is a solution, though. It is not strictly-speaking a formal libertarian one (as libertarianism has been formalized in recent years) and does not necessarily partake of the finer points of the non-aggression principle. It is very simple, however, and hews to what we understand of natural law.
The idea is actually based on what is already happening. In America especially, people hoping to live in a freer manner are dropping out of the system as best they can. They are reasserting their anonymity and in some cases attempting to return to agrarian roots.
This was in fact the vision of Thomas Jefferson's agrarian republicanism. It was a vision that was repudiated only by the force of the American Civil War that initiated the authoritarian and statist perspective of Alexander Hamilton and the vision of the European banks that apparently backed him.
The idea would be to return as much as possible to small, voluntary, familial oriented communities that exist outside the ambit of the regulatory state. These familial units would surely be armed for defensive purposes, use honest money and would partake of private justice wherever possible.
This sort of solution removes the libertarian conversation from the sterility of the "non aggression principal" – a principal that sounds good but that in practice seems to us increasingly unworkable. What WOULD work is to simply observe history, natural law, and how human are biologically prompted to live – in small, familial-oriented communities. In such communities, historically, there was not much conversation about the non-aggression principle.
Smaller is better, correct? (Within this context, anyway.) Family is the fundament of freedom and most people biologically can't support more than 150 relationships anyway. It is no coincidence that Western power elites have attacked farming communities and emphasized urban environments. China is doing the same, even today. And nowadays, grandparents are supposed to live separately from the family in their own retirement communities. Children are aggressively provided with their own culture to separate from their parents.
Public schools and universities undermine the age-old concept of apprenticeship and enmesh the child in a network of state-approved, authoritarian notions. Religion, a communal glue, has also been undermined. Price inflation along with "women's lib" has been engendered to ensure that both husband and wife have to work, and in fact wish for the female to work, removing her from the family.
Above all, the elites have endlessly emphasized the judicial component of the state. The state is both parent and teacher; judge and jury; enforcer and incarcerator. Morality within this context is what the state says it is. We prefer Mises' definition: morality is personal.
In fact, justice can be delivered in numerous ways. Private justice would be the preferred default in our view. What is private justice? It is justice as it was practiced for thousands of years before the modern state introduced its brand of authoritarian, monopoly justice. Private justice is likely based on the principle of the honor duel and family vendettas.
It is the threat of force that impels people to a judicial negotiation, whether one wishes to negotiate face-to-face or utilize a private third-party adjudicator. Societies that practice private justice tend to be very polite. Such a communal structure may also obviate the need for a formal non aggression principle.
If the culture is organized properly, the need for such elegant conceptualizations is greatly diminished. People, in fact, are emotional and passionate beings. Conflict is a fact of life; the Ten Commandments are regularly traduced, even though people understand them well enough and try to live by all or most of them. Conflict resolution within this context is perhaps a good deal more important than first principles.
Such private justice is laissez faire and informal. Decisions reached one time may not be reached again the same way. This sort of justice is still practiced, especially in some Islamic countries where even murder is negotiated via monetary payments. Sometimes such practices may be referred to as "common law," but the modern legal industry has done its best to confuse people over what is common law.
Today, common law is said to refer to British Common Law of the past 500-1,000 years. Such Common Law actually encompassed a fairly complex system. But REAL common law is even more basic and simpler to enforce. It was a kind of unspoken contract law, and one could argue it made no differentiation between "civil" and criminal." When a contract was broken, justice might be demanded. If justice was not sufficient, violence might ensue.
Much of the effort of modern Western jurisprudence is spent demonizing private justice in our view. Words have been coined to describe it. "Vigilante" is one of them. The repetitive element of American Westerns is that bad eggs are eventually brought to justice by government enforces. Civilization is dependent on state authority.
Next to central banking itself, modern monopoly justice is perhaps the most important dominant social theme that Western elites have implemented. We have always predicted it will be the last meme to come under attack in this era of Internet Reformation. Most people simply cannot imagine life without state monopoly justice. And even the anarchy movement seems to prefer the non-aggression principal as a communal building block.
We suggest natural law and, as necessary, agrarian emphases. But our proposal is aspirational, not didactic. We are not trying to preach, only point out that there is more than one kind of jurisprudence and even more than one kind of justice. We think Anglosphere elites have perverted much that is decent and good in Western culture and that a harkening back to what worked once upon a time, even referentially, isn't such a bad idea.
Most people also conflate justice with a single outcome. It is not "just" that some people end up being punished differently for the same "crime." Of course, this brings up specific questions about what crime is and how the state should go about enforcing morality. The standard answer is that the state enforces one's debt to society. But one could reasonably ask what is a "debt to society," exactly, and how is to be erased by incarceration, etc.
Conclusion: The Economist article is a good example of how the assumption of monopoly justice taints almost every observable aspect of the modern conversation as regards law, business and commerce. And mainstream media literally cannot and will not conceive of an unregulated environment. Even when the conversation turns to empowerment, it is assumed – stated – that such empowerment is a regulatory function. From The Economist, we would expect nothing else.

“And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?” -1 Samuel 17:29
Our last presidential elections proved you could learn a lot about a fellah by the friends he keeps (i.e., Van Jones, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, etc.). You can also learn a lot about someone or something by its enemies. The key word though is learning.
My experience as an English teacher taught me that some folks (like the socialists who are bent on destroying this country) do not want to learn. And some folks (like the proles who put the current crop of socialists in office) cannot learn. They are functionally illiterate and hopelessly dependent on taxpayers and socialist leaders to take care of them. Our public school system is the root cause of this learning disability.
Still, if I knew nothing else about a soon-to-be-released documentary called IndoctriNation, I would eagerly watch for it because of the list of enemies it has already made. Public school apostles (teachers’ unions) and George Soros’ news media propagandists began attacking IndoctriNation months ago. With the U.S. on the verge of total economic and social collapse, this is a very timely documentary.
For those of you who have never heard of this project, IndoctriNation is a 90-minute film that explores America’s public education system through the travels of Colin Gunn, a Scottish filmmaker, actor, and homeschooling father of seven. During the last year or so, he drove across America in a big, yellow school bus on a quest to discover what America’s public schools have done to America.
With a lot of help from co-producer, Joaquin Fernandez, this part documentary-part testimonial reveals an elaborate conspiracy to replace God’s plan for training subsequent generations with a humanistic model that deliberately fragments the traditional family and undermines the Churchand its commission given by our Lord Jesus Christ.
The DVD of IndoctriNation is set to be released on August 9, 2011. The producers are currently running a “(Turn Your) Back to School” campaign at home school conventions and other venues as a lead up to the start of the 2011-2012 school year.
To those liberals who like to browse NewsWithViews for no better reason than to vent their hatred for biblical Christianity and constitutional government, before you email me with your scornful diatribe, try to understand that when we criticize your public (government) schools, we do so based on two major flaws in The System. First, the children required by law to attend public schools belong to their parents, not the government. Secondly, today’s public school system, which is really one system controlled by federal dollars, is a direct violation of the Constitution’s 1st and 10th Amendment.
Proof is found in one of IndoctriNation’s critics, who made the following comment: “…You invite people like me, formerly indifferent agnostics, to dedicate our time to stopping people like you, the enemies of all human goodness and progress.”
Since he or she and millions like him see Christians as the enemy, it’s little wonder he justifies taking our children from us as spoils of war in order to de-program them from our dangerous moral values and subversive religious beliefs.
Documentaries like IndoctriNation, books by many of the authors interviewed for this film (like Dr. Sam Blumenfeld, Chaplain Ray Moore, John Taylor Gatto, Dr. Bruce Shortt, Karl Priest, and others, including me) and sermons by ministers (like Franklin Graham, Dr. Charles Stanley, Dr. Erwin Lutzer and Dr. D. James Kennedy), asks the question, “Is there not a cause?” Apparently, though, our cause is a threat to supposedly indifferent but really anti-Christian folks like the above critic.
Moreover, because we are talking about our children, there should be even greater outrage from parents. There really is a cause! These are our kids they are brainwashing!
According to the film, 90 percent of Christian parents send their kids to public schools, and 88 percent of those kids will have lost their faith by the time they graduate (if they graduate). Why do you suppose that happens? Hmmmm. Films like this one, books like mine and others, and ministers with a backbone, not only have the right but the duty to warn Christian parents about what is happening to their children when they entrust them to their local government indoctrination centers – public schools. Maybe we can save some of our kids before it’s too late!
Despite what liberals claim, when the U.S. Supreme Court’s black-robed demigods decided in favor of a secular humanist in Torcaso v. Watkins (1961), it acknowledged that Secular Humanism is in fact a religion and is protected by the 1st Amendment. Infamous Justice Hugo Black noted, “Among religions in this country which do not teach what would generally be considered a belief in the existence of God are Buddhism, Taoism, Ethical Culture, Secular Humanism, and others.”
The same court soon went on to decide that prayer (Engel v. Vatale, 1962) and bible reading (Abington v. Schempp, 1963) and eventually the posting of the Ten Commandments in public schools (Stone v. Graham, 1980) were a violation of the same amendment. But as I’ve often argued, the Fundamentals of Humanism include Darwinism, Socialism and Moral Relativism, all of which are drilled into public school children from Head Start to high school graduation (if they graduate).
Public schools violate the 1st Amendment, not only by teaching religious beliefs contrary to those of the parents (“prohibiting the free exercise thereof”), but simply teaching religious beliefs (humanism) at all.
Supposedly, public schools are under the control of local governments within each state, but in reality, that is far from true. Although parents have the façade of electing their local school board members, most of what goes on inside each school is beyond the authority of those board members.
Policies, standards and even curriculum are essentially set by unelected teachers’ unions and enforced by state boards of education, which are backed by federal dollars via the unconstitutional Department of Education. The 10th Amendment is frequently cited as proof that the DOE and therefore today’s public schools violate the Constitution.
The amendment reads, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Do you recall seeing education enumerated as a power to the federal government by the Constitution? Me either. And for that matter, I do not see where it is delegated to the states. It would appear that the people are the ones delegated with the power to educate their own children. But this was not a power even the Constitution had the authority to delegate.
My conclusion is supported by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, which spoke of “unalienable (God-given) rights.” Since we are talking about our children, both the right and responsibility to educate them are ours, according to our God.
The Bible tells us the training of our children is not merely our right but our responsibility. Consider first Proverbs 22:6, the verse I use to introduce my website,www.voicefromthepews.com. Whom do you think God (via Solomon) is telling to train the child, the State? God forbid! Try Deuteronomy 11:19. The Lord (via Moses) clearly tells us to teach our children, not delegate that responsibility to the government. So why do we do it? Is it any wonder then each generation grows further and further from God?
I talk a lot more about this issue in my last two books, Legally STUPiD: Why Johnny doesn’t have to read and Prole Nation. In Legally STUPID, I point out that Big Brother knew what he was doing when he kicked God out of the public schools. Without daily Bible reading, the Lord’s Prayer and the reminding presence of the Ten Commandments on the wall, he knew most children would not receive moral training at home or through today’s seeker friendly, apostate churches.
In Prole Nation, a novel, I depict our immediate future in which the federal government has begun to exercise even greater power over education by further restricting Christian schools and home schools, with an ultimate objective of closing them. If the Lord tarries, that day is coming soon.
Let me strongly encourage you to read further about the history of public schools. Find a copy of either of my books or Dr. Shortt’s The Harsh Truth About Public Schools, Gatto’s The Underground History of American Education or Priest’s Protester Voices – The 1974 Textbook Tea Party. Learn what your kids’ teachers and the news media don’t/won’t tell you, like gender training in California or especially how public schools were Goal #10 on the Communist Manifesto.
Before closing this article, let me show you what another public school advocate had to say about IndoctriNation: “Biggest @#$%&* ever made. The producers of this movie should be locked up in an insane asylum and the money used to make it should be taken back and put towards something beneficial for humanity like stem cell research or a cure for AIDS.”
This statement says so much about the opposition. Beyond the need to express himself with profanity, this fellah believes he or his government has the power to lock up in insane asylums folks who believe things contrary to the State, much like the use of the gulags in the old Soviet Union or George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth in Nineteen Eighty-Four, where folks like us were cured of our thought crimes.
His hateful attitude is a clear example of political correctness run amuck and evidence of what we can expect in the near future. As I have asked in other NWVs articles, for whom do you think our government has built all those containment camps hidden throughout the country?
Notice too that he asserts that the money used to produce IndoctriNation, all of which came from individual donors or private, Christian organizations – not tax payers, can and should be taken, presumably by his government again, and re-distributed to support liberal causes, like stem cell research, which takes the life of unborn babies, or AIDS research, a disease, which, for the most part, is preventable by simply changing one’s lifestyle.
Less than 100 years ago, folks like him only wanted to teach an alternative view of creation. A generation later, that view was the only view allowed in public schools as mandated by the federal government. Almost 40 years ago, they told us the Constitution somewhere gave women the right to kill their babies. Shortly thereafter, they had taxpayers paying for that so-called right.
John Dewey, the father of today’s public schools, once argued that reading skills were key to changing those schools. Not only what children read had to be controlled but how well they could read. The 1950’s introduced us to a new method of teaching reading, then called Look-Say, now called Whole Language. Under the old Phonics method of teaching reading, children could develop a 24,000-word vocabulary by the end of the 4th grade. Under the new method of memorizing words by sight (not sound), children now develop fewer than 1,500 words by the end of the 4th grade.
By dumbing down their vocabulary, they dumbed down a generation. Most Americans can no longer focus on what they are thinking – if they are thinking – because they cannot articulate what they are thinking, much like George Orwell’s proles. Now they are dependent on the government that made them that way.
And while our public schools were cleverly dumbing us down academically, they were indoctrinating us with moral relativism and revised history. Dumbed-down children who dared come to school with Christian values were easily taught to question what their parents believed, then doubt what their parents believed, then renounce what their parents believed in favor of what the State wants them to believe.
If you are one of the millions of Americans with that learning disability caused by a public school education, and you therefore cannot understand what I’ve written in this article or my books or other such books, please watch IndoctriNation when it’s released on DVD later this summer.
In the meanwhile, try to improve your reading skills for your own sake and for your children’s sake. You may want to start by reading your Bible. After all, is there not a cause?

"It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from his government."
In reference to the present condition of America, no truer words have ever been written, but just what can you do to protect your country from an out of control government? Just like raising children, government officers need discipline, and when they do not respond to discipline, then harsh restrictions must be imposed on them. Sadly, most American’s knowledge of what is wrong in this country is still focused on our officer’s personal behavior, and know nothing about what is really responsible for the loss of personal freedom, loss of privacy, loss of income producing jobs, loss of appreciating retirement funds, or any of the thousands of other subjects that have brought us to the brink of National, state, local, personal, and social bankruptcy. As a Nation of people once admired by the bulk of the world, we have slid down to the bottom of the respect scale, and incredibly few people can tell you why.
Those of us who have been researching the many subjects that have affected America’s downfall had no idea when we started that this would turn into a full blown obsessive profession, and if we had had any idea what we were in for we would have never started. An eighty-hour workweek would be a luxury for many of us. We do not expect many people will have the financial or personal interest level to go that far, and from experience, we know better that to expect much from the average working parents, due to their already hectic life style. What we do expect from you is some common sense and awareness of the imminent disaster if millions of American’s do not do some real homework and become knowledgeable enough to converse intelligently on some of the core problems.
Without a hundred million people focused on these core issues, we are going to experience a total loss of everything we hold dear. Out of the thousands of research sites on the net none that I know of are capable of presenting a full curriculum of disaster issue’s. The problems America faces are way to numerous for any small organization to tackle. I.B.M and the Rand Corporation would not be able to do that in anything less that a twenty-year prep time. Imagine what you would think if I said, you need to read a minimum of six hours a day for over a year to become marginally astute in the affairs of our country.
Education is most assuredly the number one problem in recovering control of our future. People have spent their entire life living in a “trust the media” culture, and getting people to change their core beliefs is not going to happen over-night. Problem is, we don’t have a year to just read anyway. Some of the most astute researchers are calling for a complete collapse of America in mid 2012, and that leaves no prep time for an education project of this size. Imagine you are in an airplane and suddenly it rolls over and begins spinning out of control, and that total lack of warning is where America is at this time.
CAN A FREE AMERICA BE SAVED?
Those of you who believe that the next election will turn things around in America are living in a dream world, because projects put in place decades ago are already dismantling our country. When a large business goes belly up, one of the first things that happens’ is the sell off of assets. Did you know that our federal, state, and local governments are selling America’s infrastructure to foreign Corporations and Communist China? Do you know that you Do Not own your house ? Do you know that preparations are in place to move hundreds of thousands of people into detainment centers, and detainment means under guard and not permitted to leave? Think Katrina on a National scale. All for your own safety of course. Did you know that plans are in place to have a National false flag disaster that will completely demoralize the uninformed population of America, and access to survival necessities will be impossible for you to buy? Regardless of your present financial security, you will not be able to continue living as you have planned, unless you get really educated, which is the only thing possible to piss you off enough to believe this warning. So, NO, America as you understand her, cannot be saved! It’s too late and once you are informed you would not want her to be saved. While you were not paying attention, she turned into a slut.
The time has come for all good men to come to the aid of their country.
Once a spouse has violated your mind and soul, and destroyed the bond you swore too, the only thing left is to start over, and that’s where we’re at right now. Soon you will see your government taking everything you thought you owned away from you, and casting you out in the street where human scum will attack you without mercy. Your only present option is to get prepared!
You do not have a choice!
It’s either sink, or swim folks, and your first stroke is getting informed of what has been going on behind your back for your entire life. Your so-called loving spouse has been busy for years planning your demise while you blissfully ignored all the signs. At this point, I’m smiling at your self righteous rage, and praying that you will have the common sense to investigate my conclusions. You can do that at Http://anationbeguiled.com
[A Nation Beguiled] publishes a number of highly controversial subjects, which often presents counterintuitive thinking about complex issues that have long feedback cycles. We are sometimes critical of the conventional thinking of organizations that continue to propagate obsolete misinformation, despite well-documented new research. In this respect, we are proud when we are called “confrontational.”
Our goal is to inform intelligent people about our own research and our multiple-source information integration. We seek to educate open-minded individuals about alternative points of view based on the best rapidly evolving evidence. We make no attempt to badger any particular individual, and offer interesting information that you can discuss with your financial planners, friends and family.
We encourage you to develop your own critical thinking skills, in the pursuit of freedom from tyrannical governance. Be open minded, objective, unbiased, impartial, and always ready to gather new evidence.
Use a more broad-based perspective to research about important topics. Be prepared to listen to conflicting opinions and viewpoints if you want to understand the good and valid arguments on all sides of a controversial issue.
Draw conclusions on the basis of the best available evidence! This important skill is more difficult to master than most people realize. It requires insight and knowledge into: (a) the subject matter, and (b) the process of critical thinking. Only by doing these things can we evaluate diverse sources of input and determine what constitutes the best evidence, and estimate to what eventual outcome that evidence leads.
Even critical thinking experts can learn from the best available modern and historical evidence to significantly improve their comprehension of America’s subjugation to diverse socio-political and economic problems. Sometimes new information flies in the face of conventional wisdom that has long been accepted as “truth” for many decades by the mediocre masses.
Lifelong learning is an ever-expanding universe of endless possibilities. As we make this journey of gathering knowledge to acquire wisdom, we must be aware of and alert to those who would weaken us by selling us the idea we deserve happiness and prosperity without the responsibility of working for, and protecting it.Freedom is not free!
We do not ask for, or accept compensation of any kind, but instead we worn you that your continued ignorance of the future plans of the International Bankers will cost you everything you own or hold dear.
In fact they already own you personally, you are an economic slave to them and do not believe it yet. They of course encourage your ignorance because it is more profitable for you to willingly work for them.
Occasionally this letter will fall into the hands of people who consider themselves Constitutional mavens, and with self-righteous rage they will construct vicious replies and accuse me of being a traitor. To them I say; I have personally been down the road of ignorance of reality, and willingness to die for America, but age and a strong sense of being a creature of God, and not a subject of man, plus having an observant nature that led to years of research has made a new creature out of the old one, and I am willing to take on any and every person who will travel the path I have and do the work!
Life is a lot different when you can see your own errors, and admit your past ignorance, and self-forgiveness only comes from learning the truth. Men killing men from trusting the government they live under is the most ignorant thing a person can do. If I am charged with the duty to kill someone, then show me the truth first, or I will tell you to go piss up a rope.
It’s kind of like this folks, the knowledge I have acquired from years of research has restored my self respect. Now, I know I have done all that I was capable of to assist the people and warn them of the tyranny ahead, and now the rest is up to you if you want to live free from tyrannical global bankers. Learn all you can, as fast as you can, because there will be hell on earth.
Intelligent replies respected and answered.

(Editor’s Note: Here’s a follow up to Sunday’s article about the Nye County Sheriff. As I mentioned in my comments, the office of County Sheriff is the most powerful law enforcement position in existence.)
For many years, the people’s attention in the Battle for America has been directed toward the federal government and its offices. Candidates stand for the House and the Senate. Patriotic groups publish voting records of incumbents. Considerable time, effort and money are expended in support of candidates for President. After decades of such commendable activity, the record shows it is an utter failure. The danger to the nation is worse than it ever was.
For many of those years, Republicrud bosses whined that if the people would only give them control of the federal government, they would undo Democrud damage and restore Free Enterprise. Finally, the people gave it to them. Remember? The Republicruds controlled the House, the Senate and the Oval Office long enough to turn the country around. What happened? The Republicruds made our problems much worse. Their spending made the profligate drunken sailor look like Scrooge. They deserved it when the people kicked them out. They lost all credibility.
Yes, there is Dr. Ron Paul. But Dr. No is a political aberration. Time and again, he stands alone. He has neither men’s room problems nor woman problems. He doesn’t take congressional retirement. He actually returns “money” (computer entries) to the federal treasury. He proposes abolishing the Fed and the income tax and replacing them with nothing. In foreign affairs he suggests that we mind our own business. Imagine! But, again, he is an aberration.
Why? Certainly one reason has to be that we ship the successful congressional candidate off to the District of Corruption. However good the new congressman may have been when he or she boarded the plane to the District; he is subjected to intoxicating blandishments when he arrives in the enemy camp.
Soon, he succumbs to the blandishments, maybe even making himself blackmailable, and begins to vote as the party boss says, without even reading the bills. Instead of representing the people of his congressional district in the District of Criminals, he represents the D.C. to the C.D. He or she now is one of the boys or the girls. It has happened hundreds of times.
So, if the long, heroic effort to elect federal legislators has failed, does there remain any governmental Horatius who can stand in the gap; who can lead the Battle for America and restore the Constitution? There is. Lock and load, mount up and prepare for the return of the sheriff.
My guess is that in the minds of many Americans the sheriff is an antiquated figure who lives in the movies. In the older movies he is the hero; he is Gary Cooper in “High Noon,” awaiting the train that will bring killer Frank Miller back to town. In the new ones, he is the southern sheriff, even bigger than Rosie O’Donnell, sneering, sadistic, racist, violent, etc. He has no modern relevance.
But now here comes Sheriff Richard Mack, elected and re-elected in Graham County, Arizona, where he served for eight years. During his tenure, three federal agents came to a meeting of Arizona sheriffs and told them in certain terms how they would be dragooned as unpaid federal bureaucrats and administer the new, federal Brady gun registration law.
The law was named of course for Ronald Reagan’s press secretary, who was severely wounded in the immensely suspicious attempt to assassinate the President. Since then, Mrs. Brady has become a leader of the campaign for Nazi gun confiscation. I don’t know whether she was as crazy before the shootings as she is now. Just one more increment of lunacy and they would have to lock her up.
Richard Mack and the other Arizona sheriffs at the meeting rebelled. Sheriff Richard says the language he heard – in which he did not participate – could not be repeated in the presence of genteel Christian ladies, so we can’t tell you here what the sheriffs said. But Sheriff Mack did take the government to court. He sued the United States, and Sheriff Jay Printz of Montana joined him as plaintiff.
On June 27th, 1997, the sheriffs won; in Printz v. U.S. (521 U.S. 898) the U.S. Supreme Court struck Brady down. Associate Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the ruling for the Court, in which he explained our system of government at length. The justly revered system of checks and balances is the key:
“. . . The great innovation of this design was that ‘our citizens would have two political capacities, one state and one federal, each protected from incursion by the other’” – “a legal system unprecedented in form and design, establishing two orders of government, each with its own direct relationship, its own privity, its own set of mutual rights and obligations to the people who sustain it and are governed by it.” (P. 920)
Scalia quotes President James Madison, “father” of the Constitution: “[T]he local or municipal authorities form distinct and independent portions of the supremacy, no more subject, within their respective spheres, to the general authority than the general authority is subject to them, within its own sphere.” The Federalist, No. 39 at 245.
Again and again, Justice Scalia pounds the point home (page 921): “This separation of the two spheres is one of the Constitution’s structural protections of liberty: ‘Just as the separation and independence of the coordinate branches of the Federal Government serve to prevent the accumulation of excessive power in any one branch, a healthy balance of power between the States and the Federal Government will reduce the risk of tyranny and abuse from either front.’. . .” Gregory, 501 U.S. at 458.
He quotes President Madison again: “In the compound republic of America, the power surrendered by the people is first divided between two distinct governments, and then the portion allotted to each subdivided among distinct and separate departments. Hence a double security arises to the rights of the people. The different governments will control each other, at the same time that each will be controlled by itself.” (P. 922)
No one could make this any clearer. The primary purpose of the Fathers was to prevent someone from grabbing all the power. When that happens, they knew, the result is arbitrary, confiscatory, government, the kind Tom Jefferson described in the Declaration of Independence. We would call it totalitarian.
Madison explains: “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” Federalist No. 48, February 1, 1788.
To prevent that from happening, they divided the power. First, they divided the federal power into three parts: the executive, the legislative and the judicial. They would bicker among themselves, so that no one of them could seize all the power the Constitution grants to the federal government.
The Founders divided the power even more. They set the limited power the Constitution grants the “general authority,” Madison’s term for the federal government, against the vast residual powers of the states. Each sphere of government, state and federal, would be supreme in its own sphere. Neither could control the other. Each protects itself from intervention by the other. Each has its own laws and rules.
Madison says this: “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.” Loc. Cit.
What does all this mean today in the Battle for America? Sheriff Mack says it proves that the sheriff is the highest governmental authority in his county. Within that jurisdiction – inside his county – the sheriff has more power than the governor of his state. Indeed, the sheriff has more power in his county than the President of the United States. In his county, he can overrule the President and kick his people out. Remember, the President has few and limited powers.
What? The sheriff can do that? He’s not just a character in a movie? That’s right. Not only can the sheriff do that; sheriffs have already done that, more than once. Most Americans are not aware of that because lying, conspiracy scumbags like Rush Humbug, Shallow Sean Hannitwerp and Hugh Blewitt (a lawyer) etc., haven’t told them.
Remember, the office of sheriff has a pedigree so long, we are not positive about when it was created. We think it was in the Ninth Century in England. We do know that each land district, or “shire,” was governed by a “reeve.” The sheriff of Nottingham became famous. At first, the king appointed them. With few exceptions, our American shire reeves are elected by the people.
In 1997, in Nye County, Nevada, federal agents arrived to seize cattle that belonged to rancher Wayne Hage. The sheriff gave them a choice: skedaddle or be arrested. They skedaddled. The cows stayed where they were. Wyoming sheriffs have told federal agencies they must check with the respective sheriff before they serve any papers, make any arrests or confiscate any property.
In Idaho, a 74-year-old rancher shot an endangered gray wolf which had killed one of his calves. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service sent three armed agents to serve a warrant. Lemhi County Sheriff Brett Barslou said that was “inappropriate, heavy-handed and dangerously close to excessive force.” More than 500 people turned out for a rally in the small towns of Challis and Salmon to support the sheriff and the rancher and to tell the federal government to back off.
While Richard Mack was sheriff of Graham County, Arizona, a bridge washed out. Parents had to drive twenty six miles to get their kids to school half a mile across the river. But the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers wouldn’t fix it. First they had to do an “environmental impact study,” to replace a bridge already there. They were in no hurry. The study would take a mere ten years.
The people’s suffering reached the board of supervisors. The board voted to dredge the river and fix the bridge. The feds warned that they would be fined $50,000 per day if they tried. The supervisors hesitated. Sheriff Mack promised them and the workers protection and pledged to call out a posse for the purpose if necessary. They built the bridge and the Corps of Engineers faded. The board never paid a dime.
So the long dormant spirit of America is reviving. The states are beginning to adopt Tenth Amendment resolutions, using powers they have always had. The people are restoring our long unbalanced constitutional system. There is something “blowin’ in the wind,” but it isn’t what Bob Dylan thought it was. Recently, Sheriff Mack addressed 570 people in Fredericksburg, Texas. He reports that the reception was “beyond fantastic.”
What can you do? For once we are not just complaining. There is a plan. I do not argue that you should forget about Congress. Not at all; if you see an opportunity there, take it. Always remember that right now it is run by people like Barney the Bugger of Taxachusetts, who will be elected by moronth in hith dithtrict until he dieth of AIDS.
Most of the time, when you approach your congressman, you come to complain. In the new crusade, you will approach your sheriff and tell him that he is not only handsome, charming and overwhelmingly masculine, but also that he has powers he may not be aware of. You have come to tell him what they are and to back him up. My guess is, when you tell him that, he will not kick you out.
Tell him you expect him to return the courtesy when the Nazis come from the District of Criminals to get the guns. Tell him you are ready in a minute to serve under his direction in a posse. He will not move to Washington and be corrupted. He will stay there with you. Show him the ten orders the Oath Keepers will not obey. The Oath Keepers are retired and active duty military and police. Their web site is oath-keepers.blogspot.com. The first order they promise to disobey is an order to disarm you.
Put him together with Sheriff Mack. You will find him at sheriffmack.com. His telephone numbers are 928 792-4340 and 928 792-3888. Bring the sheriff to your town to speak. He will explain all this. Invite your own sheriff. At the meeting I attended, the local sheriff and chief of police were there and loved what they heard. No one dislikes hearing how important he is.
What if your sheriff is stupid or a federal factotum? That is what you will find in many big cities. I once interviewed Los Angeles County Sheriff Peter Pitchess, who said no one should have a hand gun. I asked him how a five foot lady alone in bed could defend herself from a rapist. Realizing he was perilously close to making himself look even dumber than he did usually, Pitchess conceded she could have a long gun.
I brightened. A street sweeper isn’t really the best weapon for close quarters, but it would give the lady a chance. Unfortunately, Pitchess added the word, “unloaded.” I asked him what that five foot lady with an unloaded shotgun could do against a six foot rapist. A police captain sat beside Pitchess during the interview. His job was to extricate Peter from the jams he persisted on getting himself into. The police captain extruded a barrage of miasma. It was effective. I did not get an answer.
In such cases, says Sheriff Mack, move to a county where the sheriff is receptive. Many more will be. For instance, in Texas there are 254 counties. Each has a sheriff. If it is feasible to do so, run for sheriff yourself. Even your wife will be impressed when she sees you with a hog leg on your hip and a star on your vest. Imagine the intense joy of meeting IRS Communists or BATFE Nazis at the county line and denying them admission.
The Battle for America will be decided in your county at your front door. If you act now, later you will not need to “fill your hand.”

Little of what has issued from the District of Criminals is lawful or constitutional and most of what has come from this den of vipers is an overt attack on the constitution and civil liberties. While claiming they want world peace and disarmament, those in our “government” have, for decades of course, worked to make sure there was a war going on somewhere. After all, what good is a military war machine based economy if you aren’t blowing up another country and killing off a fair number of their indigenous citizens? There is money to be made from dropping those bombs, and, then we get to steal the assets of the country we obliterated and sell them off to our best global corporate buddies.
Behind all of the phony peace talks, so-called peace treaty’s and other false geo-political machinations which appear to be never ending, is the intent not only to create fictionalized reasons to mount wars of aggression, but also to move us into position for the convening of a constitutional convention (Con-Con). And, as these so-called peace talks go on endlessly, we mount one illegal act of war after another against every country that has refused to capitulate to world banking cartels, global corporations, and the United Nations. The only way we will ever have peace is if these things are obliterated from the face of the earth.
If the president and or congress can create enough federal unconstitutional interference to anger the states causing them to file suit against the fed, a convention could be convened. The purpose of this convention could end, finally, the United States as a sovereign nation subjecting it totally to United Nations rule and subverting our national laws and control. As of this date, 35 states have filed suit against the federal government over encroachment on states rights and the creation of undue burdens on the states for the benefit of increasing federal power and control. Only 38 states are required to convene a convention.
We are in dangerous territory.
Something I believe is indicative of a staged Con-Con is the fact that at least some of the suits now counted towards the needed 38 are in fact, suits that were filed decades ago, some as far back as the 70’s.
Why we should fear a Con-Con
While many of us cheer the idea of a Con-Con, we should be cautious. We assume, maybe naively, that such a convention would be used to control and repeal the growth of the federal government and its constant efforts to force the states into subjugation to the United Nations, illegal trade agreements, harmonization agreements, international laws, and the steady flow of laws which are not within the power of the federal government. While I would be ever so grateful if a smack down of the fed was in fact the case, the result could be something far worse.
I am of the opinion that the majority of unconstitutional laws having been passed in the last fifteen years have been the result of a concerted effort to maneuver the states into position to call for a Con-Con. I believe that every effort has been made to intentionally exceed the enumerated powers of the federal government in order to create the climate necessary for a convention. If this should happen, it will be made to appear that it was a result of state’s rights and the will of the people. The truth will be to facilitate a new global constitution most likely constructed and laying in wait in the United Nations.
What we need to consider carefully is the history of the federal government whether Republican or Democrat controlled, most of which is a litany of egregious assaults on the states and their citizens. Little of what has issued from the District of Criminals is lawful or constitutional and most of what has come from this den of vipers is an overt attack on the constitution and civil liberties. I cannot conceive that these corporate hiney huggers will give up their control without a fight and no lie will be too big, no deception too large in order for them to retain their position and power.
My fear is that given the opportunity to convene a Con-Con, only those who are on board with the UN Agenda 21 and the intent to substitute a globalist constitution to replace our national documents will be allowed to attend. I believe that control agents would be included in the delegates to the Convention, and these individuals would actually write any amendments and those would most likely be detrimental, broadly and vaguely written to accommodate the transition to the United Nations as the central global government.
Under control of the United Nations
No one hates us more for our freedoms than our own governing elite and other global corporations. Our Constitution, although seldom honored these days, still represents a major stumbling block in the efforts to create a world government seat in the United Nations. While the written statements and agenda’s of the UN read like a humanitarian dream the reality is that in the end there is an intention to not only control every human being on earth, including what they eat, if and how much water they have and whether they live or die, but to divest anyone except the elites from property ownership. This is why so many nations are kept in abject poverty, deliberately. Hungry people are far more willing to comply.
We have already been subjected to the transitional phases of total United Nations control. Under George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld began closing strategic bases in the USjust prior to and also during the illegal war with Iraq. Our 5 thArmy Division is now under the UN and wears their emblem on a shoulder patch, as the UN military is constructed as per the statements of intent listed in “Freedom from War” subtitled: THE UNITED STATES PROGRAM FOR GENERAL AND COMPLETE DISARMAMENT IN A PEACEFUL WORLD. Published by the state department, this pamphlet is commonly known as Publication 7277. This publication is a statement of clear intent to dissolve our national military and convert it to part of a global UN force. This is all the more important as the UN voted just last year to assemble its own military force made up of military forces from around the world.
We are in the last phases of transition stage II. Stage three is the total dissolution of sovereign nation states and the disarming of people around the globe with the exception of law enforcement and UN military. Stage III is the global police state.
For stage III to be complete and to pacify the people of the US, a constitutional convention will most likely be called at this point. First we will be pushed into a staged but absolute economic ruin, our food resources will be scarce, and most likely a bioweapons false flag attack will be utilized just to make sure you are good and scared. Scare= compliant. The convention will be called, the necessary changes will be made to the constitution effectively surrendering the US to United Nations control and most of you of course will happily surrender us as long as you aren’t too greatly inconvenienced.

If there is anything the United Nations hates worse than our dogged determination to remain free, it is our insistence that we will not fall under UN control.
Let me lay this out for you in a simple way, so that maybe you can get the gist of what is really going on and how through incremental legislation EVERYTHING is being taken away from us.
The CLEAR Act: A pre-planned and pre-written bill; one just waiting for that golden opportunity to magically appear, will seize all water rights, coastal and in-land. BINGO! We got the BP oil spill and this is one of the excuses for the CLEAR Act. This bill seizes all mineral, gas and oil rights and permits, and by extension the revenues from those permits. This bill converts state owned land to federal ownership and control. This Act which stood little chance of passing was quietly slipped over to the EPA for implementation through agency regulation and enforcement. This bill also represents the UN position that land ownership and by extension those things derived from the land including water, should be owned only by government.
Although the bill is marketed as another global warming fix for this thoroughly exposed hoax, it redefines “navigable waters” (limiting jurisdiction) to, “waters of America”, an all-encompassing jurisdiction. The bill is at odds with this supreme court ruling which says that investors may build over wetlands. While these two things seem arbitrary on the surface, in fact they are not. This case established a precedent which will allow global interests both foreign and domestic to alter, delete and otherwise redirect natural water flows for the benefit of business. This got the EPA off the hook. Rapanos v supreme court
This bill will also make the Coast Guard, now a military branch (formerly civil service) a police power not only on the water, but also on land. As a national police force, they might site you on land or water for an infraction of federal corporate codes, and may now take you to a military tribunal or administrative corporate court: it is entirely at their discretion.
Cap & Trade: This is a bill built on one of the greatest scams in recent history; the global warming myth. This myth was promoted to make C&T seem plausible. In reality, the bill would not have reduced carbon emissions and was never intended to. The only true function of the bill was revenue generation. Big polluters would be given credits to use or to sell generating a secondary market. Once the climate-gate emails revealed the fraudulent science and the open intention to mislead the public through the use of fraudulent data, global warming was dispensed with and the issue became climate-change. ( you are supposed to be too stupid to realize it is the same deal) Once exposed as a fraud, the bill was quietly slipped over to the EPA to implement and to enforce, which they are doing.
Under Agenda 21, every aspect of life is controlled by the state.
The Healthcare Reform Act: Another bill that is nothing more than a loss of control over our individual selves that also includes a massive system of fines, fees, penalties, co-payments and of course the ever popular mandate that we must buy some crappy insurance policy that in essence will cover nothing much. The bill also mandates mandatory vaccines and relegates the decisions on your healthcare to a “panel” in some agency who will decide what treatments might be available to you. Dependent on your age and what your value to the community might be if an investment was made in your recovery, will determine what treatments you get.
Did we regulate the insurance industry so that it cannot charge extortion rates? No!
Did we make sure that a right to negotiate prescription drug prices was included? No!
Were pharmaceutical manufacturers held liable for defective medications and vaccines which cause massive illnesses and death? No!
Was anything at all in this bill conducive to cleaning up the healthcare, pharmaceutical and insurance industries? Absolutely not.
As the devastation to our economy, manufacturing base, job base, continues unabated largely as a result of numerous illegal trade agreements which devastated every sector of the economy, an estimated 22 million people find themselves ultimately out of work. Without regard to the devastating affects of additional free trade agreements, Obama is now considering signing the South Korean Trade Agreement costing the US an estimated 179,000 jobs. This agreement is NOT a constitutional treaty. It is a private corporate to corporate agreement between the executives of those corporations; ie., Our president and the leader of South Korea.
Did we penalize any corporation that shut its doors here in the US and then went over to some third world country to ply their trade? No! We are forced to subsidize them by allowing them to continue to conduct business in theUSwithout any tariffs for doing so; in fact without having to pay anything for the privilege of conducting business in theUS. They are allowed to rake in massive profits, route them through foreign banks and avoid most US taxes.
In the midst of all of the above, came the foreclosures on homes across the country as the trap laid for many unsuspecting homeowners, slammed shut. The trap had been carefully laid using derivatives, fractional selling, multiple selling of mortgage contracts, artificial inflation of the housing market and adjustable rate mortgages that somehow almost simultaneously inflated all at one time and then collapsed. Of course, none of the career criminals from Wall Street or banking who were working in tandem with the District of Criminals ever saw a day in jail for their corruption and not one was forced to forfeit even a portion of their ill-gotten gains.
UN Agenda 21 defers to corporations as the appropriate “persons” regarding import/export of a nations assets.
Did we bail out homeowners? No! We bailed out the thugs and thieves!
Now here is where we start putting the puzzle pieces together:
- S.510 fake food safety bill will destroy independent agriculture and export most of our food product out of the country. (our food)
- The CLEAR act takes our water, minerals, mining and land ( water & raw materials) Now slated for implementation by EPA. There goes your right to clean affordable, water.
- Cap & Trade sells the rights to pollute for a fee (our air) EPA Again! That would be the air you breathe.
- Obamacare takes away our 4th Amendment rights to be secure in our persons and our privacy. There goes your personal freedom.
- 22 million are jobless ( and this number is rising)
- 47 million families are on food stamps (also rising)
- Food prices have risen 70% in less than a year.
- Foreclosures are at an historical high (and rising)
- Of the bills mentioned, each includes a prohibition on judicial revue: meaning the agencies which will now be aggressively assaulting private citizens cannot be taken into court.
- SB 1619 The Livable Communities Act will resurface and be sold as “the future” ofAmerica…..the only way they can keep us safe.
The Livable Communities Act, (SB 1619) was introduced by outgoing Senator Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.). It seeks to fulfill the United Nation’s plan Agenda 21, adopted at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and signed onto by “New World Order” President George H.W. Bush. This bill is the rounding up of all the displaced workers, homeless families, rural folk, and who ever else can be herded into these United Nations, planned population centers. This is the creation of ghettos that will virtually function as prisons for massive portions of the population as land is seized and declared off limits to human habitation as required under the UN Agenda 21 plan.
- This act:
- Is a blueprint for the transformation of our society into total Federal control.
- Will enforce Federal Sustainable Development zoning and control of local communities.
- Will create a massive new “development” bureaucracy.
- Will drive up the cost of energy to heat and cool your home.
- Will drive up the cost of gasoline as a way to get you out of your car.
- Will force you to spend thousands of dollars on your home in order to comply with EPA demands that you must meet their standards before you can sell your home.
Much of this is already in play and evident in the economy and in government as we are steered into accepting UN control.
And that is where we end up: at the United Nations. Virtually everything mentioned here and much more that was not mentioned can be traced back to UN agenda 21 mandates. We are being maneuvered into economic disaster while losing our freedom and human rights to water and food and self determination.
While we founder on the edge of un-repayable national debt, congress on both sides of the fictional isle and the president work tirelessly to implement by stealth the Agenda 21 protocols. Our government refuses to impose a moratorium on foreign aid even as American’s slide into poverty and this same government refuses to give aid to American’s.
If there is anything the United Nations hates worse than our dogged determination to remain free, it is our insistence that we will not fall under UN control. Of course the politicians in the District of Criminals, whether Republican or Democrat, and our president have other plans for us.

INTERNATIONAL BANKERS BOUNTY
No, I am not suicidal, even though I would personally love to rip their hearts out with my bare hands; this BOUNTY is not a reward for their dead bodies, even though they deserve it. As a matter of fact, it is a little more complicated than the simple act of ending their miserable life.
I propose that every red blooded American reach deep down in their pockets and contribute one weeks salary to the I.B.B. for the entrapment of the bankers, by financing a group of researchers, detectives, and lawyers, to hound every move they have made in their miserable life, and compile enough evidence to indict them on charges of conspiracy to murder America. Is that not a crime against humanity? Is that not a HATE CRIME? We need to eliminate their entire bloodline.
This is not a penny-pinching project as the goal is
ONE BILLION U.S. DOLLARS
TO BE SPLIT BY THE ENTIRE TEEM.
Do the math folks, it will not take that many people to finance this.
Surely, there are enough Americas left working to afford only 1/52 of their yearly income, if the benefit is the elimination of these vampires.
The bottom line of our problem is MONEY. We cannot depend on their employees in D.C. to indict them, or even talk back to them, and MONEY seems to be the ONLY thing people give a crap about, so let’s build a war chest to bury these Bastards and free up the worlds countries to rebuild their economy’s with the confiscated assets of the INTERNATIONAL BANKSTERS. THAT WILL PUT THE N.G.O.s, AND THE MULTINATIONAL MONOPOLISTIC CORPORATIONS BETWEEN A ROCK AND A NOOSE. That will devastate their stock value world wide, and the assholes that profit from their stocks will have to go back to work. After the bankers and their corporations are eliminated, we can rebuild America with the knowledge we have accumulated from this cluster fuck.
Believe me folks there are many times more than enough scalpers in the legal profession to construct a justifiable case against these scumbags, and all we have to do is MAKE IT WORTH THEIR WHILE.
Another thing you can believe is, this old man is not delusional enough to think I am intellectually prepared to finish the design of my epiphany, so I am soliciting the help of those who are much better equipped than I am.
Take this epiphany, redesign, and expand it until it is comprehensible and acceptable to the masses, other wise bend over and kiss everyone’s ass goodbye.
For those who think this is a despicable idea, kiss my nasty old ass, and go suck up to your present hero politician, and, tell your apostate pastors to do the same. We the people have been subjugated by the bankers long enough, and the time of retribution is at hand.
James P. Harvey (aka OldDog)
If you are wondering what pissed me off so bad, read the article below, and it is not by any means a one time event, but it confirms my feeling of being embarrassed to be an American. What the hell has happened to this country, that cannot be attributed to the slow and consistent social disintegration from being manipulated by the international bankers control of every facet of our lives.
Read it and weep!
'You Can No Longer Think of Yourselves as Peace Officers': Militarizing 'Lockdown High'
by William Norman Grigg
Recently by William Norman Grigg: They Do This Every Week: Clarence Dupnik’s Death Squad
It was Friday the 13th, and Skylar Walters thought he was going to die.
The 16-year-old inmate of Orangeville Jr.-Sr. High in Illinois was in gym class when a deranged-looking man barged into the school and began firing what appeared to be a handgun at several of the other students.
"I started praying to God and saying my last words," Skylar later recalled. "I was scared. I didn't know what to do."
As the intruder fired his gun, he called out the name of a particular student; the youngster quite sensibly fled the building. Other kids "were just running everywhere and crying and hiding," Skylar recounted. Some of the panicking schoolkids probably attempted to call or text their parents to describe the horror unfolding in front of them. They didn't know that each of the parents had been instructed not to answer if his child issued a desperate plea for help.
That last sadistic touch is what distinguished the May 13 "active shooter drill" in Orangeville from countless other performances of its kindstaged in schools across the Soyuz by the Police State Play Actors' Guild. Most of the time, the kids for whose supposed benefit those drills are choreographed – and the parents responsible for their care, education, and upbringing – are let in on the joke.
Last October 10, for example, a mob of "between 80 and 100 officials" from law enforcement agencies staged a little Garrison State melodrama in New York's William H. Barton Intermediate School. As described in the Glens Falls Post-Star:
"Fire alarms sounded at 9:31 a.m., drawing closed doors. Three Warren County sheriff's officers and two state troopers conducted the first search, where they encountered students in a hallway and instructed them to sit down. They reached a second floor on a north wing of the school and found several bodies laying across the hallway. Police searched the classrooms, bathrooms and even an elevator, pressing their backs against walls before entering rooms and calling out `clear.' A cafeteria was secured as a transfer point for victims with casualties, and a triage site for patient evaluation was at a nearby school."
In that exercise, students – some of them in grade school – were recruited to play "victims." One of them was the third-grade daughter of Heather Holl, who was herself cast as a "victim" in the third trimester of pregnancy. Another bit player, Heather's son Alexander, "played the role of a gunshot victim" with an entry wound in his chest and a large exit wound in the back.
It should be pointed out that the tactics employed in the "active shooter" scenario at the William H. Barton School focused on officer safety, rather than active intervention on behalf of the victims. In real life, Alexander Holl would have been one of several unarmed, helpless schoolchildren killed while the SWAT team – encased in body armor and brandishing high-performance weaponry – took exquisite care to minimize its exposure to risk.
"He's excited," Heather commented as her son was transported away from the scene by medical personnel. "He didn't even sleep last night."
At least he was given a copy of the script before the staged shooting began. The students who were deprived of that indispensable intelligence in Orangeville most likely aren't sleeping well now – not because they're full of eager anticipation, but rather because they suffer from post-traumatic stress.
Parents were required to participate passively in the scenario played out in Orangeville: They weren't informed about the event until curtain time, and then ordered to participate in an information embargo targeting their terrified kids.
What this means, of course, is that although the disguised deputy playing the role of assailant was firing blanks, the schoolkids were, quite literally, being held hostage.
If a bank robber bluffs his way through a heist with a toy gun, he's committed a real crime. The same is true of the people who terrorized the inmates of Orangeville Jr.-Sr. High on May 13. School District Superintendent Randy Otto has submitted his resignation, and some parents have discussed the possibility of a lawsuit – but the appropriate criminal charges against those responsible aren't forthcoming.
"Our number one goal is to save lives," warbled Leigh Anne Ryals, Emergency Management Director for Baldwin County, Florida, following a similar school shooter drill in Robertsdale's Central Baldwin Middle School a few years ago. The means such drills employ are incompatible with that goal, since the standard template is based on the "Lockdown" Scenario: The killers conduct the rampage on their own terms, end it at a time of their choosing, and the SWAT team merely cattle-pens the victims.
Like every other "security" measure inflicted on Americans since 9/11, the "lockdown" scenario treats schoolchildren as a tactical impediment – or perhaps even a threat – to be dealt with, rather than as innocent people to be protected. That model was actually put in place before 9/11 – even before Columbine – as part of the federal "Safe Schools" dogma that grew out of the Regime's narcotics price support program (sometimes dishonestly called the "War on Drugs").
Today it is typical for police agencies to deploy "Resource Officers" to prowl the halls of schools in search of misbehavior that can be treated as criminal offenses, rather than disciplinary problems.
In his keynote address to the 2007 National Association of School Resources Conference, held against the rugged and forbidding backdrop of Orlando's Disney World, self-styled tactical and counter-terrorism John Giduck offered a telling glimpse into the mindset of the armed strangers who haunt local government schools:
"You've got to be a one-man fighting force…. You've got to have enough guns, and ammunition and body armor to stay alive…. You should be walking around in schools every day in complete tactical equipment, with semi-automatic weapons…. You can no longer afford to think of yourselves as peace officers…. You must think of yourself [sic] as soldiers in a war because we're going to ask you to act like soldiers." (Emphasis added.)
In her immensely informative and tirelessly infuriating new book Lockdown High: When The Schoolhouse becomes a Jailhouse, investigative reporter Annette Fuentes describes Giduck's audience as "a sea of khaki uniforms, some [of whom in the crowd] were waring holstered handguns…. [M]ore than a few had shaved heads and bulging bellies or biceps. Some had both. If drug tests had been required for registration, odds are that a few steroid-positives could have resulted among the more muscular attendees."
Giduck himself has appointed himself an authority on the tactics and training of special forces despite a resume untainted by actual experience in the same. In similar fashion Giduck advertises himself as a world-caliber authority on radical Islam and counter-terrorism: He claims to have been tutored in counter-terrorism by "Putin's boss," the former head of the KGB, and to have trained with Soviet-era special forces, during a visit to Russia in the late Gorbachev era. Assuming that Giduck is telling the truth, that line on his vita should summarily disqualify him from having anything to do with children anywhere.
Whatever proves to be the truth about Giduck's claims, he is a prominent figure among the cohort Fuentes calls the "Profiteers of Lockdown High" – an interlocking collection of governmental and quasi-private bureaucracies committed to eradicating the few substantive distinctions separating schools from prisons.
"Every day in communities across the United States, children and adolescents spend the majority of their waking hours in schools that increasingly have come to resemble places of detention more than places of learning," observes Fuentes. Federally subsidized "zero tolerance" policies have created what Fuentes and other critics of the system call the "school-to-prison pipeline": "If yesterday's prank got a slap on the wrist, today those wrists could be slapped with handcuffs."
The danger here is not merely that schools have been largely transformed into short-term prison facilities; it's that the SROs deployed therein take seriously Giduck's catechism about being combat-ready "warriors," rather than peace officers. Their operational credo is not "protect and serve," but rather "control and dominate" – and, with increasing frequency, "close and kill."
Those options are compellingly displayed in two entirely unnecessary police assaults on young teenagers: The case of 17-year-old Derby, Kansas resident Jonathan Villareal, who was beaten, tasered, and handcuffed by police "resource officers" who took offense over the way the high school student was wearing his pants; and the murder of 14-year-old San Antonio reform school student Derek Lopez. Significantly, both of those incidents occurred after school hours.
Relieved by the end of his daily sentence in the government mind-laundry, Jonthan passed a brace of officially licensed bullies on the way to the bus. One of them told Jonathan to pull up his pants; the youngster replied – hopefully with the appropriate measure of controlled contempt – that school was over and he was thus free to dress any way he chose.
One of the thugs – his tax-fattened bulk making him much larger than the scrawny adolescent – threw Jonathan to the ground while bellowing the familiar rapist's refrain: "Stop resisting!" The other thug immediately joined in, both of them striking and kneeing the prone, helpless teenager in the back, legs, and neck. Jonathan also suffered a black eye.
When Jonathan struggled to his feet, he was thrown down forcefully; he felt his arm snap as he hit the ground. He struggled to his feet again, thereby giving one of the costumed enforcers an excuse to report that the victim had assumed an "aggressive stance." This supposedly justified a potentially lethal taser attack.
The Derby High School newspaper, appropriately called the Informer, explained that students can be subjected to "administrative" discipline for wearing their pants "inappropriately." Derby Police Chief Robert Lee described the incident as "a flagrant violation of school policy that could have been handled administratively, if he had not resisted the SRO."
Once again, we see the logic of the rapist at work: If the victim is severely injured or killed for fighting back, it's her own fault; she shouldn't have resisted. This comparison, of course, is unfair: Rapists and other aggressors not swaddled in government-issued costumes aren't generally permitted to file criminal charges against victims who fight back. The Derby Police Department "will take the incident to the district attorney for possible criminal charges against Villareal," observes the Informer.
Through an interpreter, Villareal's mother said that she "understands if they need to arrest him for being disrespectful," but that she doesn't understand why "they need to beat him up for whatever reason."
The short answer, of course, is this: They do it because they can.
Derby High's dress code is described as part of an effort to beat back the insidious "gang culture" considered to be a besetting scourge of society. Doubtless the school also participates in the Regime's "anti-bullying campaign," in which students are encouraged to rat out each other whenever they hear inappropriate comments, or see what they believe to be inappropriate conduct.
None of this applies to the sanctified bullies in military attire, of course. Since they belong to the State's punitive priesthood, those skeevy armed adults can loiter around schools, leering like Aqualung at underage girls and taunting smaller young males in an attempt to provoke them into doing something to justify a righteous beating – followed by prosecution for "resisting arrest."
With troubling frequency, this State-authorized bullying involves the use of consistently lethal weapons, such as the ubiquitous portable electro-shock torture device. On occasion, it involves unambiguous criminal homicide. Witness the November 12, 2010 killing of Derek Lopez by Officer Daniel Alvarado of San Antonio's Northside Independent School District Police.
Alvarado was an exceptionally unqualified officer even by the dismal standards that prevail among the ranks of tax-subsidized gun thugs. Between March 2006 and November 2010, Alvarado was suspended four times. Four times he was informed by supervisors that he faced "immediate termination."
For some reason – most likely one rooted in police union politics – when it came time to fire Alvarado, his superiors just couldn't bring themselves to pull the trigger. Alvarado displayed no similar scruples on November 12, 2010, when he murdered 14-year-old Derek Lopez, who had just taken part in a brief scuffle with another student.
Owing to his own troubled past, Lopez was a student at the Bexar County Juvenile Justice Academy. At around 4:30 PM on the fatal day, Lopez sucker-punched a 13-year-old classmate at a bus stop.
"He just hit me once," the student later recalled in a sworn deposition. "It wasn't a fight. It was nothing."
Unfortunately, Alvarado happened to be prowling the intersection in his patrol car, and witnessed the trivial dust-up.
"Freeze!" Alvarado shouted at Lopez, who bolted from the scene. Alvarado, in his mid-40s, briefly gave token pursuit before wheezing out the first of several self-serving falsehoods.
"I just had one run from me," gasped the winded tax-feeder. "I saw an assault in progress. He punched the guy several times." (Emphasis added.)
A supervisor instructed Alvarado "not [to] do any big search over there" in pursuit of the assailant. "Let's stay with the victim and see if we can identify [the suspect] that way."
Rather than doing as he was ordered, Alvarado bundled the "victim" – who was probably more terrified of the armed functionary than of his obnoxious classmate – into the patrol car and went in pursuit of Lopez.
Lopez climbed a nearby fence and hid in a backyard shed containing Christmas decorations. The homeowner saw the intrusion, and a neighbor flagged down Alvarado's patrol car. The officer drew his gun "when he came up the driveway," recalled the homeowner.
Within a minute or so, a single gunshot resonated through the neighborhood. When asked by the horrified homeowner what had happened, Alvarado – who reportedly looked "dazed or distant" – replied that Lopez "came at me."
"The suspect bull rushed his way out of the shed and lunged right at me," the timorous creature later claimed in an official report. "The suspect was literally inches away from me, and I feared for my own safety."(Emphasis added.)
Alvarado was lying, of course. An autopsy revealed "no evidence of close range firing [on] the wound," and no gunpowder stains were found on the victim's bloody t-shirt.
By this time, the boy who had taken the punch at the bus stop had called his mother via cell phone. She arrived shortly after Alvarado had gunned down Lopez.
"At one point, the mother told a witness, 'He shot him? Why did he shoot him? He didn't have to shoot him,"reports the San Antonio News-Express .
Alvarado, who four times was on the cusp of being fired for insubordination, disobeyed a direct order on November 12. He falsified key details of the shooting in his official report. A 14-year-old boy was gunned down execution-style for the venial offense of engaging in an adolescent scuffle, and for compelling an overweight middle-aged badge-polisher to run a few hundred yards. According to the San Antonio Police Department, this is all perfectly acceptable: The department ruled that the murder of Derek Lopez was a "justified" shooting.
Although he's been removed from patrol duty, Alvarado remains on the force, albeit in a tax-underwritten sinecure. Although he had repeatedly been threatened with termination for sloppiness or defiance in carrying out administrative duties, Alvarado faces neither criminal prosecution nor professional censure for murdering a 14-year-old boy.
Apparently, insubordination in carrying out office functions is a much graver matter than insubordination that results in the needless death of an adolescent Mundane.
Despite the fact that this incident involved two teenage boys who attended a special school for troubled juveniles, parents should understand that students in practically any government-run "educational" institution can fall prey to sudden – and potentially lethal – police violence.
The purpose of "active shooter drills" is not to refine protocols intended to protect inmates of government schools; instead, it is to habituate children to the presence of paramilitary operators in their midst. Parents should ponder that reality as millions of young Americans begin their welcome Summer parole from the government's hybrid school/prison system – and they should likewise consider the wisdom of making that parole an unconditional pardon.

"He [a federal agent] had his knee on my back and I had no idea why they were there."–Anthony Wright, victim of a Dept. of Education SWAT team raid
The militarization of American police–no doubt a blowback effect of the military empire–has become an unfortunate part of American life. In fact, it says something about our reliance on the military that federal agencies having nothing whatsoever to do with national defense now see the need for their own paramilitary units. Among those federal agencies laying claim to their own law enforcement divisions are the State Department, Department of Education, Department of Energy, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service, to name just a few. These agencies have secured the services of fully armed agents–often in SWAT team attire–through a typical bureaucratic sleight-of-hand provision allowing for the creation of Offices of Inspectors General (OIG). Each OIG office is supposedly charged with not only auditing their particular agency's actions but also uncovering possible misconduct, waste, fraud, theft, or certain types of criminal activity by individuals or groups related to the agency's operation. At present, there are73 such OIG offices in the federal government that, at times, perpetuate a police state aura about them.
For example, it was heavily armed agents from one such OIG office, working under the auspices of the Department of Education, who forced their way into the home of a California man, handcuffed him, and placed his three children (ages 3, 7, and 11) in a squad car while they conducted a search of his home. This federal SWAT team raid, which is essentially what it was, on the home of Anthony Wright on Tuesday, June 7, 2011, was allegedly intended to ferret out information on Wright's estranged wife, Michelle, who no longer lives with him and who was suspected of financial aid fraud (early news reports characterized the purpose of the raid as being over Michelle's delinquent student loans). According to Wright, he was awakened at 6 am by the sound of agents battering down his door and, upon descending the stairs, was immediately subdued by police. One neighbor actually witnessed the team of armed agents surround the house and, after forcing entry, they "dragged [Wright] out in his boxer shorts, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him."
This is not the first time a SWAT team has been employed in non-violent scenarios. Nationwide, SWAT teams have been employed to address an astonishingly trivial array of criminal activity or mere community nuisances: angry dogs, domestic disputes, improper paperwork filed by an orchid farmer, and misdemeanor marijuana possession, to give a brief sampling. In some instances, SWAT teams are even employed, in full armament, to perform routine patrols.
How did we allow ourselves to travel so far down the road to a police state? While we are now grappling with a power-hungry police state at the federal level, the militarization of domestic American law enforcement is largely the result of the militarization of local police forces, which are increasingly militaristic in their uniforms, weaponry, language, training, and tactics and have come to rely on SWAT teams in matters that once could have been satisfactorily performed by traditional civilian officers. Even so, this transformation of law enforcement at the local level could not have been possible without substantial assistance from the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
Frequently justified as vital tools necessary to combat terrorism and deal with rare but extremely dangerous criminal situations, such as those involving hostages, SWAT teams–which first appeared on the scene in California in the 1960s–have now become intrinsic parts of local law enforcement operations, thanks in large part to substantial federal assistance. For example, in 1994, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of Defense agreed to a memorandum of understanding that enabled the transfer of federal military technology to local police forces. Following the passage of the Defense Authorization Security Act of 1997, which was intended to accelerate the transfer of military equipment to domestic law enforcement departments, local police acquired military weaponry–gratuitously or at sharp discounts–at astonishing rates. Between 1997 and 1999, the agency created by the Defense Authorization Security Act conveyed 3.4 million orders of military equipment to over 11,000 local police agencies in all 50 states. Not only did this vast abundance of military weaponry contribute to a more militarized police force, but it also helped spur the creation of SWAT teams in jurisdictions across the country.
In one of the few quantitative studies on the subject, criminologist Peter Kraska found in 1997 that close to 90 percent of cities with populations exceeding 50,000 and at least 100 sworn officers had at least one paramilitary unit. In a separate study, Kraska determined that, as of 1996, 65 percent of towns with populations between 25,000 and 50,000 had a paramilitary unit, with an additional 8 percent intending to establish one.
While the frequency of SWAT operations has increased dramatically in recent years, jumping from 1,000 to 40,000 raids per year by 2001, it appears to have less to do with increases in violent crime and more to do withlaw enforcement bureaucracy and a police state mentality. Indeed, according to Kraska's estimates,75-80 percent of SWAT callouts are now for mere warrant service. In some jurisdictions, SWAT teams are responsible for servicing 100 percent of all drug warrants issued. A Maryland study, conducted in the wake of a botched raid in 2008 that resulted in the mistaken detainment of Berwyn Heights mayor Cheye Calvo and the shooting deaths of his two dogs, corroborates Kraska's findings. According to the study, SWAT teams are deployed 4.5 times per day in Maryland with 94 percent of those deployments being for something as minor as serving search or arrest warrants. In the county in which the Calvo raid occurred, more than50 percent of SWAT operations carried out were for misdemeanors or non-serious felonies.
This overuse of paramilitary forces and increased reliance on military weaponry has inevitably resulted in a pervasive culture of militarism in domestic law enforcement. Police mimicry of the military is enhanced by the war-heavy imagery and metaphors associated with law enforcement activity: the war on drugs, the war on crime, etc. Moreover, it is estimated that 46 percent of paramilitary units were trained by "active-duty military experts in special operations." In turn, the military mindset adopted by many SWAT members encourages a tendency to employ lethal force. After all, soldiers are authorized to terminate enemy combatants. As Lawrence Korb, a former official in the Reagan Administration, put it, soldiers are "trained to vaporize, not Mirandize."
Ironically, despite the fact that SWAT team members are subject to greater legal restraints than their counterparts in the military, they are often less well-trained in the use of force than are the special ops soldiers on which they model themselves. Indeed, SWAT teams frequently fail to conform to the basic precautions required in military raids. For instance, after reading about a drug raid in Missouri, an army officer currently serving in Afghanistan commented:
My first thought on reading this story is this: Most American police SWAT teams probably have fewer restrictions on conducting forced entry raids than do US forces in Afghanistan.For our troops over here to conduct any kind of forced entry, day or night, they have to meet one of two conditions: have a bad guy (or guys) inside actively shooting at them; or obtain permission from a 2-star general, who must be convinced by available intelligence (evidence) that the person or persons they're after is present at the location, and that it's too dangerous to try less coercive methods.
Remember, SWAT teams originated as specialized units dedicated to defusing extremely sensitive, dangerous situations. As the role of paramilitary forces has expanded, however, to include involvement in nondescript police work targeting nonviolent suspects, the mere presence of SWAT units has actually injected a level of danger and violence into police-citizen interactions that was not present as long as these interactions were handled by traditional civilian officers. In one drug raid, for instance, an unarmed pregnant woman was shot as she attempted to flee the police by climbing out a window. In another case, the girlfriend of a drug suspect and her young child crouched on the floor in obedience to police instructions during the execution of a search warrant. One officer proceeded to shoot the family dogs. His fellow officer, in another room, mistook the shots for hostile gunfire and fired blindly into the room where the defendant crouched, killing her and wounding her child.
What we are witnessing is an inversion of the police-civilian relationship. Rather than compelling police officers to remain within constitutional bounds as servants of the people, ordinary Americans are being placed at the mercy of law enforcement. This is what happens when paramilitary forces are used to conduct ordinary policing operations, such as executing warrants on nonviolent defendants.Yet studies indicate that paramilitary raids frequently result in misdemeanor convictions. An investigation by Denver's Rocky Mountain News revealed that of the 146 no-knock raids conducted in Denver in 2000, only 49 resulted in charges. And only two resulted in prison sentences for suspects targeted in the raids.
General incompetence, collateral damage (fatalities, property damage, etc.) and botched raids tend to go hand in hand with an overuse of paramilitary forces. In some cases, officers misread the address on the warrant. In others, they simply barge into the wrong house or even the wrong building. In another subset of cases (such as the Department of Education raid on Anthony Wright's home), police conduct a search of a building where the suspect no longer resides. SWAT teams have even on occasion conducted multiple, sequential raids on wrong addresses or executed search warrants despite the fact that the suspect is already in police custody. Police have also raided homes on the basis of mistaking the presence or scent of legal substances for drugs. Incredibly, these substances have included tomatoes, sunflowers, fish, elderberry bushes, kenaf plants, hibiscus, and ragweed.
All too often, botched SWAT team raids have resulted in one tragedy after another for the residents with little consequences for law enforcement. Judges tend to afford extreme levels of deference to police officers who have mistakenly killed innocent civilians but do not afford similar leniency to civilians who have injured police officers in acts of self-defense. Even homeowners who mistake officers for robbers can be sentenced for assault or murder if they take defensive actions resulting in harm to police.
And as journalist Radley Balko shows in his in-depth study of police militarization, the shock-and-awe tactics utilized by many SWAT teams only increases the likelihood that someone will get hurt. Drug warrants, for instance, are typically served by paramilitary units late at night or shortly before dawn. Unfortunately, to the unsuspecting homeowner–especially in cases involving mistaken identities or wrong addresses–a raid can appear to be nothing less than a violent home invasion, with armed intruders crashing through their door. The natural reaction would be to engage in self-defense. Yet such a defensive reaction on the part of a homeowner, particularly a gun owner, will spur officers to employ lethal force.
That's exactly what happened to Jose Guerena, the young ex-Marine who was killed after a SWAT team kicked open the door of his Arizona home during a drug raid and opened fire. According to news reports, Guerena, 26 years old and the father of two young children, grabbed a gun in response to the forced invasion but never fired. In fact, the safety was still on his gun when he was killed. Police officers were not as restrained. The young Iraqi war veteran was allegedly fired upon 61 times. Guerena had no prior criminal record, and the police found nothing illegal in his home.
The problems inherent in these situations are further compounded by the fact that SWAT teams are granted "no-knock" warrants at high rates such that the warrants themselves are rendered practically meaningless.This sorry state of affairs is made even worse by recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings that have essentially done away with the need for a "no-knock" warrant altogether, giving the police authority to disregard the protections afforded American citizens by the Fourth Amendment.
In the process, Americans are rendered altogether helpless and terror-stricken as a result of these confrontations with the police. Indeed, "terrorizing" is a mild term to describe the effect on those who survive such vigilante tactics. "It was terrible. It was the most frightening experience of my life. I thought it was a terrorist attack," said 84-year-old Leona Goldberg, a victim of such a raid. Yet this type of "terrorizing" activity is characteristic of the culture that we have created. As author Eugene V. Walker, a former Boston University professor, wrote some years ago, "A society in which people are already isolated and atomized, divided by suspicious and destructive rivalry, would support a system of terror better than a society without much chronic antagonism."

Remember, only by electing representatives who support our Constitution and Bill of Rights can we ever hope to turn around this police-state mentality that many in federal government now appear to support and force on local law enforcement. We must end this "us verses them" attitude that many in government have against average citizens..

“You can run on for a long time, but sooner or later God will cut you down.” -Johnny Cash
We have all been a little deflated by the price suppression in the paper silver market lately, but the drop in inventory has been extremely bullish. Today we not only dropped 777,018 ounces in the all important Registered inventory. We dropped 1.2 million additional ounces in the Eligible category.
This is the first time ever it has been under 100 million ounces.
You have to wonder at what point will people wake up to what is going on here?
Do we really have to wait until there is 0 ounces left?
You also have to wonder why the Elite ALWAYS try price controls either explicit or secretive like they are doing now?
I also thing think it is foolish to think JP Morgon is going to fall on the sword and not at some point go really long in physical knowing how much they have suppressed this market. The only question that remains will someone beat them to the punch?
The CRIMEX has lost on average 1.6 million ounces a month for the past 3 years. At that pace there will be nothing left in about a year and a half.
The CRIMEX has lost 13 million ounces since April 19th. At that pace there will be nothing left in 4 months.
The CRIMEX lost 2 million ounces today. At that pace there will be nothing left by July.
My gut is telling me July is going to be very tumultuous. It is a delivery month and there are hundreds of millions of paper contracts all playing musical chairs to this 28 million ounces. There does not have to be physical default because the CRIMEX will either settle for FRN’s, SLV shares or change the rules. No matter what they do they will only make the final judgment that much worse. Keep stacking.

Don't Tread On Me
By Silver Shield, on June 9th,2011
I have been tempted to write about False Flags for sometime, because I feel we are on the verge of seeing another one very soon. False flag operations are covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities. (Wikipedia) False flags do not happen very often, but when they do happen, they change the paradigm we operate in. Now that we supposedly killed bin Laden last month, it seems like the deck is clear for another one.
Historically, false flags are military in nature, but I feel going forward, they will morph into something worse. Every system built on debt needs constant debt to be created, or the system implodes. If the Elite can expand the system through asset bubbles, then all is well. What happens if they can’t get more debt created? They need to either steal other assets to provide capital to the system or they need a reason to create massive debts that the masses will sacrifice for. Wars do both. With war, the Elite can confiscate natural resources of other nations and provide the context to create massive amounts of new debt.
Our system is failing and there is NO fixing it. There is so much inequity built into the system, at every level, the only answer is a complete collapse. This collapse will leave a generational scar, so that humanity will never again consider fractional reserve banking and the war machine it enables. Until that collapse the Elite will do what they have always done, create more debts and wars.
In my opening blog post this year, Doom, I wrote that the Elite see their power paradigm collapsing on its own cancerous self. A silver default, debt doom, dollar collapse, peak oil or whatever leads to the end of the Anglo American Petro Dollar financial paradigm. I hypothesized the- our Anglo-America Elite might need to pull off 3 false flags in order to push forward. This might include the typical Military false flag, an Economic false flag and an Internet false flag. These dramatic measures will seem necessary to the Elite and the horrific toll on humanity will be justified in their minds. This upheaval will be the time for the Elite to settle all of the threats to their power paradigm.
The first of the three threats to their power is the death of the dollar. The dollar is the basis of all of the Elites power, without it or an equivalent of it, they have no means to create the debt that enslaves nations, states, corporations, and citizens of the world. This debt provides the Elite and unlimited checkbook to fund the most powerful military in the world. It controls the world’s natural resources so that their corporations can harvest them. It also protects the shipping lanes that transport the rest of the world’s trade. This debt also buys the political power for which the Elite rig the game to their favor. Finally, the Elite use the – their money to own all of the major media in order to distract the masses from the real problem in this world, the International Banksters.
It is no secret that the dollar is going to die, it is a mathematical inevitability. Nothing can stop the ultimate collapse of the dollar. Our monetary system is based on debt and in order for it to work, more debt needs to be created every year in excess of the debt AND interest accrued the year before. If it does not happen, there would be a massive wave of defaults that would suck the system dry in a few weeks. When you truly understand this debt based money, you realize that debt cannot ever be repaid because there would not be 1 dollar in existence. In our sick system, money is created when debt is created. When debt is paid off money is destroyed.
The Elite don’t necessarily care if the Dollar lives or dies, they just want to control the world’s reserve currency. They would ultimately like to have a global international currencythat would be far away from the pesky national politicians. So if the Dollar is doomed, how can the Elite push forward? Create a financial crisis so incredible that desperate people will beg the Elite to make the pain stop. They did it in 1907 to set the stage for the Federal Reserve. They did it in 2008 when they held up America for $700 billion. They will do it again and use theLIE of stability as the main reason why we should accept their new corrupt plan.
I don’t think they can pull off something so large like that without a much larger distraction to silence the masses, which brings me to the second threat. The only thing I think big enough to scare the masses under the “protective” hug of the Elite is another World War. Nations outside the Anglo American Empire have been gaining power the further we slip into debt and this is a huge threat. Countries like China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, South Africa and many more like to a lesser extent like Japan, Germany, and France have been on the losing end of the Anglo American Empire for over a century. These nations have a history of Anglo American losses like the Cold War, Opium Wars, Operation Ajax, CIA attempted coup of Chavez, Apartheid, Hiroshima, Treaty of Versailles, and Waterloo. These are only some of the examples our Elite have used in the past to ensure our supremacy. The Elite feed us some lie about us making the world safe for democracy, while they pull the most evil and disgusting power grabs to eliminate threats to their paradigm.
I believe that the collapse of the dollar will be blamed not on our corrupt and doomed monetary system that the Elite are in sole control of, they will blame it on China. Let me first state that I am NO fan of China. Their Elite have human rights violations against their own citizens that would make you sick to your stomach. Let’s be honest, China would not be a threat to us if our Elite did not build them up. Our Military Industrial Complex needs an enemy to justify their war machine. The War on Terror was a good ride, but after almost a decade, it is getting a little old. Our banking system needed another country to buy into our paper Ponzi scheme. China became the most obvious target, after Japan gorged itself to death on our debt. Our Elites, made deals with their Elites, to move our manufacturing overseas to use their slave labor and pollute their environment. The Chicoms got all of the technology, manufacturing and dollars to build up China as a threat. Our Elite did this to make tremendous profits and keep the dollar paradigm going. In the end, I believe the Elite intend to use the Chinese as the next enemy in a paradigm shifting war.
When China said no more American debt, the Federal Reserve stepped in as a buyer of last resort. This has bought us some time, but it is becoming obvious that even when QE3 happens, this won’t end good. The American economic system is like the heroin guy from the movie Se7en, any flash of inflation or deflation will create a massive heart attack. The Elite must some how solve Triffin’s Dilemma where a world reserve currency reaches its apex and must be allowed to default, but somehow not drag down the rest of the world with it. The Elite have been trying to get regional and ultimately global currencies in place to solve this dilemma. Now no nation is going to give up their power to create money, especially now that we are looking at the Euro imploding. The only option in to do it the old fashion way, through war.
The only thing the United States is good for is exporting debt and bombs. There is way too much at stake for our Elite to just walk silently into the night without a fight. They are trying to keep things going by fighting now four wars in the oil rich MENA region, but the writing is on the wall. The debt ceiling will be raised, more money/debt will be created and the war machine will churn. This will not end because the Elite will say,” we can’t do this anymore.” If anything, history has shown when the chips are on the table and they are up against the ropes, they double down and go off to war. The destruction of the dollar will either be the cause of war or the war will be the destruction of the dollar. If there is a Economic False Flag, like a massive treasury sell off, that will be the cause for war with China. Or if there is a Military False Flag, that will be the cause for the dollar’s destruction and forced introduction of a new money paradigm, possibly a global currency. The Elite will use this upheaval to destroy any competitors. In the smoking aftermath of the war, they will impose a new paradigm based on the same destructive seeds of the old paradigm.
“Never waste a good crisis.”Hillary Clinton
There is a third threat to the Elite’s power paradigm, the Internet. There is no doubt that the Internet has gotten away from the Elite and their lies have been exposed. Small sites like mine a hundreds of others show over and over again, the Emperor has no clothes. I can see an Internet False flag to coincide with this Economic and Military false flag. They will blame China for massive Internet shut downs of many sites. I believe that the big corporations will still have functioning internet, but small sites will be shut down. If this does not happen, they may do something more tyrannical, and shut down sites that speak out against this lie of war and debt.
Most tyrannies go after the heads of the revolution like local leaders and/or opinion makers like journalists and bloggers. They may ignore us at first, then call us crazy or unpatriotic, but ultimately they may detain or kill us. My hope is that people see the big picture and spread this truth so that it becomes impossible to put the genie of truth back in the bottle. One of the major reasons I created the Sons of Liberty Academy is to provide enough high level information to as many people so that they may conduct a leaderless resistance to the real enemy of us all, the Banksters.
My other hope is that those that are in charge of squelching dissent during these trying times will be Oathkeepers, who will not follow un-Constitutional orders against their fellow citizens. The most likely outcome is the government minion’s pay checks will bounce and their pensions stolen before we get to that kind of tyranny. At that point, those minions will most likely be the strongest allies to the truth movement, as they spill the beans and point the fingers. I wrote and article World?, in it I describe a man that sees what he is doing is evil and has the power to destroy the system he once created. Daniel Ellsberg exposed the Vietnam scam and ended that war. We cannot fight evil, we only need to expose evil and it will cease to have power. The challenge is to show people that the good that they think they are doing is really evil and they will no longer do it. We need to convince our fellow citizens that debt and war are evil and that we rid this scourge from humanity once and for all.
The timing and order of all of this is unknown, but just know that it is going to get dramatically worse before this gets any better. Every 80 years or so a paradigm dies and a new one is born out of the ashes of the old. 80 years ago, we had the Great Depression and World War II and this was the creation of the current paradigm. 80 years before that we had the Civil War and 80 years before that, we had the Revolutionary War. So far the United States has survived and gone on to become a Global Super Power. This time around we could have the possibility of a Revolutionary War, a Civil War, or a World War or even the combination of all three. There is nothing in writing saying that America will go on. In fact given our horrible record of debt and war, this system deserves to die an awful death.
What lays ahead? I don’t think the United States will be invaded, but we will retreat from our 777 military bases all over the world. We will no longer be able to consume 25% of the world’s oil and create unlimited amounts of debt. Our lives will become much slower and local. If the Internet does continue to be free, there is a great chance of a new Renaissance for humanity as we move past debt and war. If the Elite somehow win, you will see the rise of American Oligarchs. The Elite will fund and create front men to buy up strategic assets while there is blood on the streets. This happened during the collapse of the Soviet Empire and I believe it will happen here. During the collapse of the Soviet Empire the Ruble was devalued, the economy collapsed and people starved. The Rothschild’s came in with hard currencies like the Dollar and the Deutschmark and set up average men with banks and capital to buy state assets for a song. When our crisis comes, the Banksters will be screaming for state assets like land, roads, buildings, mining and drilling rights and other assets. They are doing this in Greece and they will do it here.
While all of this may be too scary or too much for you to believe or even too big for you to deal with,I encourage you to not hide from this coming reality.Things are only scary if you do not understand them. I have created the Sons of Liberty Academy to speed you through the 5 Stages of Awakening. When you are aware, you can prepare.You can stay ahead of the curve to at the very least, stay out of danger, and at the most, be able to spot opportunities along the way. Mental preparation is by far the most important thing you can be doing right now. Nothing will help you mentally prepare as quickly as the Sons of Liberty Academy. After that, you need to physically prepare to have food, shelter, and the means to protect yourself. Finally, I recommend you read the Silver Bullet and the Silver Shield to create generational wealth on the other side of this coming paradigm shift.

CIA Director Leon Panettatestified at the hearing on the defense budge, "The days of large growth, unlimited defense budgets are over. "Our challenge will be to design budgets that eliminate wasteful and duplicative spending while protecting those core elements that we absolutely need for our nation's defense." He later said "the next Pearl Harbor that we face could well be a cyber attack" and that "we are no longer in the cold war, more like the blizzard war." If confirmed, Mr. Panetta, will be the 23rd U.S. Defense Secretary. – CSpan
Dominant Social Theme: Relax, we are trying to DEFEND YOU. (No, we're not.)
Free-Market Analysis: CIA Director Leon Panetta said in a recent hearing that the US may soon face a cyber attack that would be the equivalent of Pearl Harbor. (See excerpt above.) Pearl Harbor was a huge (possibly false flag) event that convulsed the US and provided a pretext for the US to go to war. We've written several recent articles now suggesting that Western powers-that-be have in mind expanding the wars in Eurasia and Africa.
When the power elite's faux-economies collapse, as they always do, the solution is usually a war of some sort. It is one of the biggest dominant social themes of all. War is the ultimate fear-based promotion – the idea that the state (which is no good at anything else) – can protect and defend citizens from its "enemies." Usually, when one closely examines the situation, the enemies have been made up, at least initially. The Internet has been making war harder to promote.
War runs hand-in-hand with economics. When the economy flatlines, modern warfare is often the answer of those that seek to continue their control of society. Fiat money, the current manifestation of Western economies, is a very effective tool for control and consolidation. But like other forms of price-fixing, it doesn't work over the long term. Western power elites, based out of the City of London, know this. There are over 100 central banks around the world that are coordinated by the secretive BIS and all of them can basically print money at will. Even when there is supposedly public oversight of these banks, there is no oversight.
The serial ruin the BIS inflicts on the world is intended to increase the pressure for centralization – for true world government run by Western elites. This is not conjecture. It is not conspiracy theory. The UN exists; so do the BIS, the World Bank and the IMF. Also, now, the International Criminal Court. All are basically post-World War II Western inventions. Yet those who point that a world government is being erected bit by bit are labeled conspiracy theorists. The conspiracy lies with the power elite that is moving ahead with this unaccountable and dangerous program.
The rush to world government has speeded up in the 2000s. NATO has been given a new mandate as a kind of "army of the world" via the UN resolution back in 2005 that did away with the Peace of Westphalia and substituted "Responsibility to Protect" – also known as R2P.
The Peace of Westphalia, created hundreds of years ago, recognized national borders. R2P DEMANDS that nation-states as a group interfere with nations that are "threatening" their citizens. Of course, the Anglo-American power elites run the UN through the Security Council. Now these elites can claim that a particular country (one they want to undermine) is threatening citizens and turn a NATO coalition of the willing on them. This is what's happening in Libya, Syria, etc.
Throughout the world, over the past six months, the Anglo-American elites (in league with France) have begun to generate numerous wars and conflicts – up to 600 or so "hot spots" worldwide. This is apparently a deliberate policy of destabilization that is being supported and even initiated by CIA-trained youth groups such as the AYM.
The West's elites must understand that fiat-money inflation has plunged the world into a rolling Depression. As we have pointed out many times, China is probably next on the list. There is no real escape from this Depression – not in the short term, and thus the elites are apparently faced with a problem: They must sustain the system as it is until they can make the transition to true world government.
Whenever Western elites have faced problems before (in the past 300 years anyway) they have apparently engineered wars. The plan evidently and obviously was to do so again in the 21st century. But the Internet has made this kind of manipulation much more difficult. Like the Gutenberg Press before it, the Internet is causing a massive upheaval around the world that the elites are having difficulty controlling. We have labeled this the Internet Reformation.
The Western power elites have three main thrusts in our humble view to pursue. 1. They have an evident urgent need to continue their lunge toward world government. 2. They have to create war and chaos to do so. (Out of chaos, order.) 3. And finally, they have to ameliorate the damage that is being done to their plans by the Internet.
An Internet false flag within this context would be a kind of masterstroke. It is certainly not beyond rational discussion. We can see Leon Panetta (above) laying the groundwork for such an event. The rebuttal would be that he is merely spelling out dangers that the US faces. But when someone as powerful and important as Panetta speaks of such things, the suspicion can legitimately arise that these activities are actively being planned. An article that appeared over the weekend at ZeroHedge.com aptly summarized the many false flags that the US in particular has been involved with in the past decades.
The article is entitled, High-Level American Officials Admit that the United States Uses False Flag Terror … And Warn of Future Attacks. It was submitted by "George Washington" who is apparently a regular submitter. The article appears on his own "Washington's Blog" as well.
It points out, to begin with, that "FBI agents and CIA intelligence officials, constitutional law expert professor Jonathan Turley, Time Magazine, Keith Olbermann and the Washington Post have all said that U.S. government officials 'were trying to create an atmosphere of fear in which the American people would give them more power.'" Apparently, former Secretary of Homeland Security – Tom Ridge – admitted that he was pushed to hike terror alerts to help Bush win reelection.
Washington then points out that a former National Security Adviser told the Senate that the war on terror is "a mythical historical narrative." It is being purveyed (as we have often pointed out) deliberately to increase elite control and demonize elite enemies such as Libya's Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. "Fear makes people stupid and easy to manipulate and control." Washington adds, "Countries need to lie about their enemies in order to demonize them sufficiently so that the people will support the war."
For this reason, intelligence agencies (apparently invented by the West's banking families long ago for their personal use) are constantly identifying threats that later on prove illusory. Washington reminds us that, "the U.S. Navy's own historians now say that the sinking of the USS Maine — the justification for America's entry into the Spanish-American War — was probably caused by an internal explosion of coal, rather than an attack by the Spanish … It is also now well-accepted that the Gulf of Tonkin Incident which led to the Vietnam war was a fiction."
Washington doesn't mention it but one reason Panetta's reference to Pearl Harbor is worrisome is because there is a good amount of evidence that Pearl Harbor was a manipulated episode by FDR to bring the US into World War II. In the 1990s, at least one prominent think tank speculated that what was needed to reestablish certain elements of national pride and discipline in America was a "new Pearl Harbor." These same people went on to become prominent (many of them) in the George W. Bush administration, which gave rise to the ongoing suspicions that 9/11 itself might be a false flag, one designed to reintroduce more authoritarianism into American culture while simultaneously involving it in wars.
These same suspicions apply to the first Gulf War, as Washington points out. At least two "big lies" helped to generate the 1991 Gulf War: the first was the allegation that the Iraqis were murdering Kuwaiti babies and the second was that 250,000 Iraqi troops were massed on the border with Saudi Arabia. Washington doesn't mention it, but there are also allegations that Saddam Hussein believed he was in a sense given permission by the West to pursue his Kuwait invasion due to what may have been a purposefully nebulous response by the US State Dept. regarding his plans.
Washington updates the old Iraq war with new proposed plans. Former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Hugh Shelton recently told Jon Stewart that a Clinton cabinet member proposed letting Saddam kill an American pilot as a pretext for war in Iraq. As reported by the New York Times and other newspapers, he continues, "George W. Bush also suggested to Tony Blair that a U.S. plane be painted in United Nations colors so that – if Saddam shot it down – it would create a casus belli."
The US is a prime exponent of terrorism, Washington writes. "In '78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation." Former FBI station chief Ted Gundersen has been outspoken about False Flag terror attacks, saying that most of them are committed by the CIA and FBI.
The CIA, Washington writes, admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister. And then, of course, there isOperation Gladio, which created a secret "stay behind" army in Europe. "The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people's support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism."
We could go on with this list, and Washington does. It is grim reading, involving the FBI, CIA and, generally, the top level of the American government in false-flag efforts and subsequent coverups. Washington reminds us that those who forget history – or do not recognize – are likely doomed to repeat it.
He also points out that recently a former National Security Adviser informed the Senate that a false flag act might be blamed on Iran to declare war. And this, too: "A retired 27-year CIA analyst who prepared and presented Presidential Daily Briefs and served as a high-level analyst for several presidents stated that if there was another major attack in the U.S., it would lead to martial law … The former CIA analyst would not put it past the government to 'play fast and loose' with terror alerts and warnings and even events themselves in order to rally people behind the flag. We've written about this sort of false flag numerous times, most recently here: Does the Elite Need a False Flag?
We have noticed in the news a good deal of commentary about a cyber attack on the International Monetary Fund. A feedbacker pointed out yesterday that this increasingly publicized attack plus Panetta's disturbing remarks seem to be laying the groundwork for a false flag of this sort. Also, the Pentagon recently announced that a cyber-attack on government facilities would be considered an Act of War.
None of the above is in any sense paranoid or irresponsible to report. One needs not be involved in "conspiracy theory" to purvey the idea that Washington and London are contemplating further false flags to further consolidate power in the face of pan-Western anger over the current, dysfunctional central banking economy and to further consolidate world rule.
The Internet has revealed the plans of the Western elites, stripped away the secrecy and showed many what is really going on – a perhaps 300-year-old conspiracy to consolidate world power behind the backs of billions who are simply struggling every day to make a living and find enough food to eat. Yes, unfortunately, the free-market has been subverted in every way while billions and trillions – enough to feed the world literally for centuries (or at least to set up the agricultural infrastructure) – is wasted on wars and weapons systems.
Because of the Pentagon's announcement, a major cyber attack can be the cause of a war. If a false flag cyber attack was to be created and, say, attributed to Iran, then the US President might be under an affirmative obligation to declare war against Iran. No doubt, US powers-that-be could also justify a significant takeover of the American Internet and further reduce American civil rights. A cyber false flag might therefore promote many of the interests of the Anglosphere power elite.
Conclusion: These sorts of things have happened before. It is neither incendiary nor unpatriotic to recite them. American freedoms (what's left of them) are under attack by 16 separate US spy agencies and numerous other aggressive actions taken by Washington DC and London. Western elites are evidently and obviously at war with their own citizens. Unfortunately, there is no reason, to think peace will break out anytime soon.

"On that fateful day, the Securities and Exchange Commission declared a national emergency, and for the first time in U.S. history, invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) easing regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days. These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert government securities to be cleared upon maturity without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership."
Few people are aware of the huge Black Eagle Trust fund, let alone its critical relation to the 9/11 attacks. A brilliant summary of excellent information regarding this covert fund compiled by meticulous researcher E.P. Heidner ties together many previously unexplained threads in the 9/11 mystery in ways that are most compelling. Heidner presents volumes of solid evidence to support his thesis that one of the main reasons for the attacks was to cover up the laundering of over $200 billion in bonds from this secretive fund that were to come due the day after 9/11.
Serious 9/11 researchers will likely be most grateful for the revealing connections in this careful research made between seemingly unconnected parts of the 9/11 story and the many people and organizations involved. Those less familiar with the 9/11 cover-up will almost certainly appreciate the broad overview given and the hidden history behind it all. If we follow the money, a lot of unexplained things begin to make sense.

Note: For what may be the most powerful single piece of evidence corroborating this theory, click here to read the Reuters news service article on the massive volume of electronic financial transactions conducted from inside the WTC just before the towers collapsed. Yet the investigation results are being kept secret.
Collateral Damage: U.S. Covert Operations and the Terrorist Attacks on 9/11
The September 11th attacks were likely meant as a cover-up for financial crimes being investigated by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), whose offices in the Pentagon were destroyed on September 11th.  The attacks … were intended to cover-up the clearing of $240 billion dollars in securities covertly created in September 1991 to fund a covert economic war against the Soviet Union, during which ‘unknown’ western investors bought up much of the Soviet industry, with a focus on oil and gas.
The 9/11 attacks also served to derail multiple Federal investigations of crimes associated with the 1991 covert operation. Hundreds of billions of dollars of government securities had to be destroyed. A critical mass of brokers from the major government security brokerages in the Twin Towers had to be eliminated to create chaos in the government securities market. A situation needed to be created wherein $240 billion dollars of covert securities could be electronically “cleared” without anyone asking questions – which happened when the Federal Reserve declared an emergency and invoked its “emergency powers” that very afternoon. 
There were three major securities brokers in the World Trade Center: Cantor Fitzgerald, Eurobrokers and Garbon Inter Capital. Cantor Fitzgerald was the largest securities dealer in the US  and arguably the primary target.  41% of the fatalities in the Twin Towers came from Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers.  31% of the 125 fatalities in the Pentagon were from the Naval Command Center that housed the Office of Naval Intelligence. 39 of 40 Office of Naval Intelligence employees died. The Naval Command Center had been moved into that newly opened section of the Pentagon only a month earlier.  And in the vaults beneath the World Trade Center Towers, any certificates for bonds were destroyed. 
On that fateful day, the Securities and Exchange Commission declared a national emergency, and for the first time in U.S. history, invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) easing regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days. These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert government securities to be cleared upon maturity without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership. 
Emboldened by the lack of consequences for subverting the U.S. constitution and breaking international law during the Iran-Contra scandal of the 1980s, a Bush administration group known as “the Vulcans” planned a bigger drive to crush Communism once and for all. They waged war against the Soviet Union and Iraq under George H.W. Bush, and against Iraq and Afghanistan under George W. Bush. Belonging to this group were Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Armitage, and Condoleezza Rice. 
The Vulcan’s drive to bring an end to the Cold War was fueled by a covert war chest invisible to congressional oversight.  This war chest would be known by several names: Black Eagle Trust, the Marcos gold, Yamashita’s Gold, the Golden Lily Treasure, the Durham Trust or Project Hammer. The program also seems to have lined the pockets of the individuals that executed this policy. This was done to the tune of a staggering $240 billion dollars in covert and allegedly illegal bonds, which appear to have been replaced with Treasury notes backed by U.S. taxpayers in the aftermath of September 11.
The covert securities used to accomplish the national security objective of ending the Cold War ended up in the vaults of the brokers in the World Trade Center, and were destroyed on September 11, 2001.  They came due for settlement and clearing on September 12. The federal Agency investigating these bonds – The Office of Naval Intelligence – was in the section of the Pentagon that was destroyed on 9/11.
To this key group of senior National Security officials called the Vulcans, who had participated in the victory of the economic cold war in 1991, the WTC, the Pentagon, the four airliners and their occupants would became ‘collateral’ damage in the ending of the Cold War. Their deaths were required to hide the existence of the Black Eagle Trust, and the covert activities it had funded for over 50 years.The destruction of these lives and buildings constituted a cover-up of continued lawlessness by a fraternity or brotherhood of businessmen and criminals often referred to as ‘the Enterprise’ in the 1980s, though it has remained in the shadows since.
Numerous sources have documented that at the end of WWII, the treasury of the Japanese Empire was discovered in the Philippines by a staff member of General Charles Willoughby, [Edward Lansdale], who was General MacArthur’s chief of Intelligence. Then known as the Golden Lily Treasure, this mass of wealth had been accumulated by the Japanese through over fifty years of pillaging by its army in Southeast Asia and China. It was deposited in the Philippines due to the U.S. submarine blockade of Japan. Reports vary, but documents in the public domain suggest the recovered treasure was in excess of 280,000 metric tonnes of gold, not including jewels and diamonds. After the War [Lansdale] tortured Major Kojima Kashii – General Yamashita Tomoyuki’s driver – until he revealed and created a map of the gold sites. 
Lansdale briefed Assistant Secretary of War John J. McCloy about the findings, and a U.S. Cabinet level decision was made to confiscate the gold and cover-up its discovery. The gold would be added to the Black Eagle Trust fund. It was McCloy, along with Secretary of the Navy Robert B. Anderson and Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson who created the Black Eagle Trust. 
John McCloy, who had shared a box at the 1939 Olympics with Adolph Hitler, went on to become President of the World Bank. Robert Anderson would go on to operate the Commercial Exchange Bank in the British West Indies, be convicted of running illegal banking operations and tax evasion, and be sentenced to prison.  A fourth member of that group – William ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan – would go on to found the CIA and distribute the gold to key banks represented by his staffers.
The trust they created takes its name from the Nazi Black Eagle stamped on the gold bars of the Third Reich. Gold bullion confiscated from the Reich and not returned to its rightful owners and their heirs was the original source of funding for this trust.  Over the years, the significance of the Nazi gold would pale in comparison to the confiscated Japanese treasure.
The men responsible for initiating and executing the confiscation of Nazi and Japanese treasury gold represented the most senior Intelligence officers in the U.S. and Britain at the end of World War II, and the Cabinet of the President of the United States. The financial institutions represented by these individuals would become the major financial banks in the world, along with the Swiss-German banks they hid their gold in. The Yamashita gold would become the cornerstone of the Black Eagle Fund, from which many covert operations of the U.S. intelligence would be funded.
Lansdale’s operation in the Philippines gave birth to most of the common features of modern covert operations for U.S. Intelligence: bribery, theft, torture, and false flag operations. It would be Lansdale who would initiate a bond between the US intelligence organizations and Israeli intelligence. It would be Lansdale that would set precedents for the Intelligence community to retain the services of organized crime on U.S. soil. Lansdale would hire American Mafia family heads Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante, Meyer Lansky, and Lucky Luciano in the U.S. war against Fidel Castro in 1961.
It would be Lansdale’s team that would propose and justify sacrificing innocent U.S. civilians in order to rally the American citizenry to support an invasion of foreign soil. This was done under a program run by Brigadier General William H. Craig, who reported to Lansdale for the Cuba project.  This project was called Operation Northwoods. Documents for this project would be accidentally released from the files of Robert McNamara into the public domain some 40 years later, exposing the degree to which Lansdale’s operatives would go to wage war.  These declassified documents revealed secret plans of the U.S. military to wage a fabricated “terror” campaign against US citizens as a pretext to justify a second invasion of Cuba.
Barrick Gold would become an investment for nearly every gold bullion bank associated with the Marcos gold recovery. These banks would loan gold to Barrick, which would then sell the borrowed gold as derivatives, with the promise of replacing the borrowed gold with their gold mining operation. The records of many of those transactions disappeared when Enron collapsed and the trading operation and all its records were taken over by UBS, another major recipient of Marcos gold. The FBI was reportedly conducting an investigation into those transactions, and the investigation files were kept on the 23rd floor of the North Tower of the WTC. A review of the personal accounts of September 11 now suggests that office was deliberately targeted with explosives prior to the collapse of the WTC towers. 
In November 1980, Ronald Reagan was elected to the White House. Sixty-nine days after the inauguration, John Hinckley attempted to assassinate President Reagan. Eight days prior to that attempt, there were a series of unprecedented policy changes that put George Bush in charge of Foreign Policy and National Security.That conferred new roles and powers on Bush, including "unprecedented powers for a vice president."  Vice President George Bush was named the leader of the United States "crisis management'' staff, as a part of the National Security Council system.  Then, on March 30, 1981, just eight days after these powers were conferred on Bush, President Reagan was shot.
The father of the assassin that put Bush in power was John (a.k.a. Jack) Hinckley, Sr., the owner of Vanderbilt Oil.Hinckley had been giving maximum donations every year to George H.W. Bush since he started running for Congress. In The Black Hole of Guyana: The Untold Story of the Jonestown Massacre, John Judge painstakingly documents that Jonestown was a CIA operation for converting dispossessed and lonely refugees into assassins. In an operation that was falling under Congressional investigation, the evidence had to be eliminated – and nearly all the inhabitants were murdered to prevent disclosure. 
A key player in the Marcos gold would be Banker’s Trust, which was taken over by Alex Brown & Sons, after Banker’s Trust floundered financially on its Russian loans in the mid 1990s. These Russian loans were facilitated by Enron, starting in August of 1993, and very possibly were part of the Project Hammer takeover of Soviet industry. Alex Brown‘s involvement would bring to the forefront the names of three individuals who would play multiple roles in this mystery: Buzz Krongard, Mayo Shattuck, and J Carter Beese.
Buzz Krongard is reported as the mentor of Beese and Shattuck from their years together at Alex Brown. Additionally, he managed the merger between Bankers Trust and Deutschebank Alex Brown. Bankers Trust, Zurich was a key Marcos gold holder. Krongard would move on to become Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown, Vice Chairman of Banker's Trust, and Executive Director of the CIA at the time of September 11.
Mayo Shattuck would be reported to be the personal banker for Adnan Khashoggi and Edgar Bronfmann during their partnership at Barrick Gold.  He would move on to become the CEO of Deutschebank who would resign for unexplained reasons the day after September 11, and would not be at the WTC office that day when the tower collapsed. It was his bank that was identified as the source of the illegal stock options that indicated there was insider trading taking advantage of the September 11 tragedy.
What happened to the Marcos gold after it was confiscated by U.S. agents in 1986 has never been reported, but throughout the early 1990s, the world gold market would be befuddled by the mysterious appearance of thousands of tonnes of gold which appeared to suppress the price of gold.
In preparation for their war against Communism, and in the years leading up to the failed – or faux – coup of 1991 which initiated the last days of Gorbachev and the rise of Yeltsin, Bush and a cadre of rogue KGB officials built a complex international network of banks and holding companies that would be used to take over ownership of the Soviet economy. Over 300 of these KGB turncoats who supported this operation would later be re-located to the US in the early 1990s and pensioned.  Periodic CIA reports to Congress would review KGB and organized crime complicity in the takeover of Russia by criminal elements, but all mention of the formidable role of the U.S. would be expunged from Congressional oversight and the public record. 
In the first phase of the economic attack on the Soviet Union, George Bush authorized Leo Wanta and others to destabilize the ruble and facilitate the theft of the Soviet/Russian treasury. This would result in draining the Russian treasury of between 2,000 to 3,000 tonnes of gold bullion, ($35 billion at the time).  The gold was ‘stolen’ in March of 1991, facilitated by Leo Wanta and signed off by Boris Yeltsin’s right hand man. The majority of the leaked reports from the CIA and FBI suggest the theft of the Russian treasury was a KGB and Communist party operation, but what those reports omitted was the extensive involvement of Boris Yeltsin, the U.S. banking industry and the CIA.
In the second phase, Wanta, George Soros and a group of Bush appointees would begin to destabilize the ruble. There were two major operations: the largest was coordinated by Alan Greenspan and Oliver North, and implemented by Leo Wanta.
The 9/11 Cover-up and the Black Eagle Trust
With an understanding of the economic war being waged on the Soviet Union, the focus needs to turn to reports that on September 11, 1991, President George Bush was responsible for issuing $240 billion dollars in secretive bonds as a part of this attack on the Russian ruble. There are six lines of evidence from eight sources that suggest this was indeed the case. Many of these instances are corroborated with documents available on the Internet, presented by those making the claims. 
The bonds sat for ten years, like a ticking time bomb. They had to be settled – or cashed in by September 12, 2001. The two firms in the U.S. most likely to be handling them would be Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers – the two largest government securities firms in the U.S. The federal agency mostly involved in investigating those transactions was the Office of Naval Intelligence. On 9/11, those same three organizations: the two largest government securities brokers and the Office of Naval Intelligence in the US took direct hits.
What happened inside the buildings of the World Trade on September 11 is difficult, but not impossible to discern. The government has put a seal on the testimony gathered by the investigating 911 Commission, and instructed government employees to not speak on the matter or suffer severe penalties, but there are a number of personal testimonies posted on the Internet as to what happened in those buildings that day.
Careful reconstruction from those testimonies indicates the deliberate destruction of evidence not only by a targeted assault on the buildings, but also by targeted fires and explosions. In the event that either the hijacking failed, or the buildings were not brought down, the evidence would be destroyed by fires.In addition to the investigative evidence being destroyed, the Federal Register reported that the physical securities held by the brokers in their vaults had been destroyed.
What would be even more revealing would be the actions of the Federal Reserve Bank and the Securities and Exchange Commission on that day, and in the immediate aftermath. As one of many coincidences on 9/11, the Federal Reserve Bank was operating its information system from its remote back-up site rather than it’s downtown headquarters. The SEC and Federal Reserve system remained unfazed by the attack. All of their systems continued to operate. The two major security trading firms had their trade data backed up on remote systems. Nevertheless, the Commission for the first time invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) and issued several orders to ease certain regulatory restrictions temporarily.
The Federal Reserve Suspends the Rules
On the first day of the crisis, the SEC lifted “Rule 15c3-3: Customer Protection – Reserves and Custody of Securities.” Thus GSCC [Government Securities Clearing Corporation] was thus allowed to substitute other securities for the physical securities destroyed during the attack. “…collateral substitutions can and should be made with regard to immediately maturing collateral.”  At this point in time, the Federal Reserve and its GSCC had created a settlement environment totally void of controls and reporting – where it could substitute valid, new government securities for the mature, illegal securities, and not have to record where the original bad securities had come from, or where the new securities went– all because the paper for the primary brokers for US securities had been eliminated.
A review of the explanations for the actions of the Federal Reserve after September 11th exposes an amazingly complex web of analysis and speculation. The reports published by the Federal Reserve argue that the Federal Reserve’s actions increasing the monetary supply by over $300 billion were justified to overcome operational difficulties in the financial sector. While impressive as the reports are, what is noted by the casual reader is that all of the Federal Reserve analysis is speculative and suggestive, using phraseology such as “may have,” “likely,” “presumably,” or “should have.” There are few – if any – definitive statements about root cause and the appropriateness of the Federal Reserve response.
While the Fed was reporting outstanding account balances of over $100 billion per day (while not identifying the banks involved), the Wall Street Journal reported that at one point during the week after 9/11, BoNY was publicly reported to be overdue on $100 billion in payments.  The Deutschebank, which sat inside the WTC and was totally decimated, reported no such account balance increase, and JP Morgan, the other of only two clearing banks which uses the same traders and communications hub, reported no such increase in its account balance. No one has publicly asked: why is it that these other two banks were not seriously disrupted, while the Bank of New York – which had no structural damage – seemed unable to operate?
Certain key unknown figures in the Federal Reserve may have ‘conspired’ with key unknown figures at the Bank of New York to create a situation where $240 billion in off balance sheet securities created in 1991 as part of an official covert operation to overthrow the Soviet Union, could be cleared without publicly acknowledging their existence. These securities, originally managed by Cantor Fitzgerald, were cleared and settled in the aftermath of September 11th through the BoNY. The $100 billion account balance bubble reported by the Wall Street Journal as being experienced in the BoNY was tip of a three day operation, when these securities were moved from off-balance-sheet to the balance sheet.
[As reported on page 12 of a Federal Reserve document] “In the absence of complete information on deliveries into and out of its account at BoNY on September 11, and as a result of its assumption of settlement fails on the starting legs of blind-brokered RPs, GSCC recorded (after the close of business on September 11) $266 billion in transactions that apparently failed to settle.… Continuing connectivity problems prevented GSCC from giving BoNY delivery instructions after the close of business on September 11 and prevented it from acquiring information on activity in its account at BoNY during the day on September 12. Consequently, GSCC recorded $440 billion in settlement fails as of the close of business on September 12.” 
What appears to be the case is that the Federal Reserve imbalances reported on three consecutive days in the aftermath were largely concentrated at the Bank of New York, which is reported to represent over 90% of the imbalance, suggesting the Bank had been the recipient of massive fund transfers, and unable to send out transfers. Overall transactions for the day of 9/11 were seemingly down even more significantly than volume, but the transactions that came in after closing were extremely large, averaging in size in packages of $35 million or more. This would be consistent with a hypothesis that $240 billion of securities were being pushed surreptitiously into the money supply.
The Federal Reserve, without providing the detail required to substantiate it’s claims, would have the public believe that there were widespread liquidity issues, when in fact the issues were very concentrated primarily, if not singularly, in the BoNY, which has been the subject of an ongoing major money-laundering investigation for many years. These account balance issues resulted in the defacto expansion of the monetary supply, details of which are no longer reported by the Federal Reserve.
The reported cause of this market malfunction is seemingly suspect. By comparison, the Deutschebank which sat inside the World Trade Center reported no such account balance increase, and JP Morgan, the other of two clearing banks which uses the same traders and communications hub, reported no such increase in account balance. Additionally, while problems were being documented between the BoNY and GCSS, no other institution had those problems.
There is a contention that at the core of the September 11th attack, someone was planning to cover the 1991 issuance of $240 billion in covert securities used to finance the collapse the Soviet Union. The facts surrounding the financial aftermath of September 11 suggest this is not only possible, but that reports describing the aftermath have deliberately been misleading.
- The US dollar money supply was significantly increased in the aftermath of 9/11;
- The bank at the core of the illegal money laundering by ex-Soviet criminals was the source of the increased money supply (BoNY);
- The generally disseminated rationale for BoNY’s operational problems seems to have affected no other bank in a similar manner or magnitude and is inconsistent with reports on the BoNY operations in the aftermath;
- A key witness who might provide insight to these issues is a statistically aberrant death;
- The source of the BoNY’s $330 billion increase in assets is cloaked under the privilege of “private banking;”
- The only alleged “severe” disruption to the financial systems was the Federal Reserves account balance and the securities trading fails – both systems required to hide the laundering of $240 billion in covert securities.
This is not a ‘proof’ that $240 billion was laundered, but it provides probable cause for paying serious attention.
History has many interpretations, and this report has been just one of many – an interpretation pieced together from the bold admissions and revelations of insiders, whose stories have been ignored and suppressed by the major media organizations. It is an interpretation of history that suggests a few determined men strove to change the world in defense of Western capitalism in ways which they felt needed to be hidden from the public. Whatever emotion or logic that was adequate to cause them to hide their actions from the public was not strong enough to prevent them from committing the acts.

INDEPENDENT RESEARCHER CLAY DOUGLAS EXPLAINS
WHEN AND HOW THE BANKSTERS TOOK CONTROL OF AMERICA
Under the doctrine of Parens Patriae, "Government As Parent", as a result of the manipulated bankruptcy of the United States of America in 1930, ALL the assets of the American people, their person, and of our country itself are held by the Depository Trust Corporation at 55 Water Street, NY, NY, secured by UCC Commercial Liens, which are then monetized as "debt money" by the Federal Reserve. It may interest you to know that under the umbrella of the Depository Trust Corporation lies the CEDE Corporation, the Federal Reserve Corporation, the American Bar Association, the legal arm of the banking interests, and the Internal Revenue Service, the system's collection agency.
Did you ever hear of the Independent Treasury Act of 1920?
The Independent Treasury Act of 1920 suspended the de jure (meaning "by right of legal establishment") Treasury Department of the United States government. Our Congress turned the treasury department over to a private corporation, which when seen in its true light, is a fascist monopolistic cartel, the Federal Reserve and their agents. The bulk of the ownership of the Federal Reserve System, a very well kept secret from the American Citizen, is held by these banking interests, and NONE is held by the United States Treasury:
Rothschild Bank of London,
Rothschild Bank of Berlin,
Warburg Bank of Hamburg,
Warburg Bank of Amsterdam,
Lazard Brothers of Paris,
Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy,
Chase Manhattan Bank of New York,
Goldman, Sachs of New York,
Lehman Brothers of New York,
Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York,
The Federal Reserve is at the root of most of our present statutory regulations, "laws", in the control and regulation of virtually all aspects of human activity in the United States, through successively socialistic constructions laid upon the Commerce clause of the Constitution. Basically, the Federal Reserve is the "STATE" of the United States.
All our law is private law, written by The National Law Institute, Law Professors, and the Bar Association, the Agents of Foreign Banking interests. They have come to this position of writing the law by fraudulently deleting the "Titles of Nobility and Honour" Thirteenth Amendment from the Constitution for the United States, creating an oligarchy of Lawyers and Bankers controlling all three branches of our government. Most of our law comes directly through the Hague or the U.N. Almost all U.N. treaties have been codified into the U.S. codes. That's where all our educational programs originate. The U.N. controls our education system.
[The creation of the Executive Branch policy enforcement brigade]
The Federal Register Act was created by Pres. Roosevelt in 1935. Title 3 sec. 301 et seq. by Executive Order. He gave himself the power to create federal agencies and appoint a head of the agency. He then re-delegated his authority to make law (statutory regulations) to those agency heads. One big problem there, the president has no constitutional authority to make law. Under the Constitution re-delegation of delegated authority is a felony breach.
The president then gave the agencies the authority to tax. We now have government by appointment running this country. This is the shadow government sometimes spoken about, but never referred to as government by appointment. This type of government represents taxation without representation.
How does this relate to the chemtrail assault that Mr Douglas [and many others] exposed?
From How the Federal Reserve Banksters Stole our Gold:
From Dr Schroder:
“To summarize briefly: On March 9,1933 the American people in all their domestic, daily, and commercial transactions became the same as the enemy. The President of the united States, through licenses or any other form, was given the power to regulate and control the actions of enemies. He made We, the People, chattel property; he seized our gold, our property and our rights; and he suspended the Constitution.
And we know that current law, to this day, says that all proclamations issued heretofore or hereafter by the President or the Secretary of the Treasury are approved and confirmed by Congress.”

OP/ED Larry Bell
It may not come as surprising news to many of you that the United Nations does not approve of our Second Amendment. Not one bit. And they very much hope to do something about it with help from some powerful American friends. Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.
What, exactly, does the intended agreement entail?
While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:
- Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
- Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
- Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
- Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
- In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.
Have no doubt that this plan is very real, with strong Obama administration support. In January 2010, the U.S. joined 152 other countries in endorsing a U.N. Arms Treaty Resolution that will establish a 2012 conference to draft a blueprint for enactment. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has pledged to push for Senate ratification.
Former U.N. ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners to take this initiative seriously, stating that the U.N. “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”
More from contributor Larry Bell
Although professing to support the Second Amendment during her presidential election bid, Hillary Clinton is not generally known as a gun rights enthusiast. She has been a long-time activist for federal firearms licensing and registration, and a vigorous opponent of state Right-to-Carry laws. As a New York senator, she ranked among the National Rifle Association’s worst “F”-rated gun banners who voted to support the sort of gunpoint disarmament that marked New Orleans’ rogue police actions against law-abiding gun owners in the anarchistic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
President Obama’s record on citizen gun rights does not reflect much advocacy either. Consider for example his appointment of anti-gun rights former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels as an alternate U.S. representative to the U.N., and his choice of Andrew Traver who has worked to terminate civilian ownership of so-called “assault rifles” (another prejudicially meaningless gun term) to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Then, in a move unprecedented in American history, the Obama administration quietly banned the re-importation and sale of 850,000 collectable antique U.S.-manufactured M1 Garand and Carbine rifles that were left in South Korea following the Korean War. Developed in the 1930s, the venerable M1 Garand carried the U.S. through World War II, seeing action in every major battle.
As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama was an aggressive advocate for expanding gun control laws, and even voted against legislation giving gun owners an affirmative defense when they use firearms to defend themselves and their families against home invaders and burglars. He also served on a 10-member board of directors of the radically activist anti-gun Joyce Foundation in Chicago during a period between 1998-2001when it contributed $18,326,183 in grants to anti-Second Amendment organizations.
If someone breaks into your home when you are there, which would you prefer to have close at hand: 1) a telephone to call 911, or 2) a loaded gun of respectable caliber? That is a pretty easy question for me to answer. I am a long-time NRA member, concealed firearms license holder and a regular weekly recreational pistol shooter. And while I do not ordinarily care to target anything that has a mother, will reluctantly make an exception should an urgent provocation arise. I also happen to enjoy the company of friends who hunt, as well as those, like myself, who share an abiding interest in American history and the firearms that influenced it.
There are many like me, and fewer of them would be alive today were it not for exercise of their gun rights. In fact, law-abiding citizens in America used guns in self-defense 2.5 million times during 1993 (about 6,850 times per day), and actually shot and killed 2 1/2 times as many criminals as police did (1,527 to 606). Those civilian self-defense shootings resulted in less than 1/5th as many incidents as police where an innocent person was mistakenly identified as a criminal (2% versus 11%).
Just how effectively have gun bans worked to make citizens safer in other countries? Take the number of home break-ins while residents are present as an indication. In Canada and Britain, both with tough gun-control laws, nearly half of all burglaries occur when residents are present. But in the U.S. where many households are armed, only about 13% happen when someone is home.
Recognizing clear statistical benefit evidence, 41 states now allow competent, law-abiding adults to carry permitted or permit-exempt concealed handguns. As a result, crime rates in those states have typically fallen at least 10% in the year following enactment.
So the majority in our Senate is smart enough to realize that the U.N.’s gun-grab agenda is unconstitutional, politically suicidal for those who support it, and down-right idiotic—right? Let’s hope so, but not entirely count on it. While a few loyal Obama Democrats are truly “pro-gun”, many are loathe to vote against treaties that carry the president’s international prestige, causing him embarrassment.
Also, don’t forget that Senate confirmation of anti-gun Obama nominee Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Many within the few who voted against her did so only because of massive grassroots pressure from constituents who take their Constitutional protections very seriously.
Now, more than ever, it’s imperative to stick by our guns in demanding that all Constitutional rights be preserved. If not, we will surely lose both.
Surely, by now, all of my readers should know what I think about this kind of crap, but the urge to express my contempt for all politicians who engage in this kind of back-door legislation is more than I can bare. I sincerely hope that this does not come to pass in my lifetime, because I really don’t want to hurt some dumb-ass young cop. Shit like this should require the pukes responsible to initiate it, then I would have a clean conscience.

WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF CHINA
IF THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE DOESN'T BRING OUT THE FIGHT IN YOU THEN YOU ARE INDEED A NWO CITIZEN, a fluoride depleted human? brainwashed? dumbed down or just plain stupid, selfish and self centered with no care for your fellow human being or your own country. Our ancestors fought and died for us to be in a free country and I suspect they expected us to carry on their mission not just give the most beautiful country in the world away making it's citizens prisoners of the elite rulers.
What can we do about it? Write, call, visit your Representatives. Make them know you will not tolerate such crap in your state and country. It is time to put it to the wall, what ever is necessary to let them know the UN nor DC will not be allowed to give away or sell our country. They (congress and senate) have already sold most of our national parks to foreign countries mainly China.. as well as our infrastructure as in Toll Roads etc.. This crap has to cease and the ones that are already established destroyed.. thrown out.. erased.. the contracts canceled.
It is time for us to gather together in neighborhoods, form groups to visit these useless eaters in Washington and our State capitols. Time to stop their insane rule and inane banter which we accept as promises which will be carried out.. Time to face realism and see with clear eyes.. time to give up our self image of "liberal, understanding & caring " people.. We cannot win with the liberal mindset that has prevailed only because it is so much easier to accept it than to fight and tell the preachers of such garbage they are full of crap and a chicken crap bunch of spineless jellyfish…
If you are thinking hell it's only 50 sq miles, then stop and take a good look at San Francisco and China town.. that will be your back yard and it keeps expanding.. growing like a fungus..
THE CHINESE FUNGUS IS COMING TO YOUR PART OF TOWN…. BET ON IT IF ONE IS ALLOWED TO BE BUILT IT WILL ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THEY WILL BE SPRINGING UP ALL OVER….
China Wants To Construct A 50 Square Mile Self-Sustaining City South Of Boise, Idaho
Tuesday, June 07, 2011 8:54
Thanks to the trillions of dollars that the Chinese have made flooding our shores with cheap products, China is now in a position of tremendous economic power. So what is China going to do with all of that money? One thing that they have decided to do is to buy up pieces of the United States and set up "special economic zones" inside our country from which they can continue to extend their economic domination. One of these "special economic zones" would be just south of Boise, Idaho and the Idaho government is eager to give it to them. China National Machinery Industry Corporation (Sinomach for short) plans to construct a "technology zone" south of Boise Airport which would ultimately be up to 50 square miles in size. The Chinese Communist Party is the majority owner of Sinomach, so the 10,000 to 30,000 acre "self-sustaining city" that is being planned would essentially belong to the Chinese government. The planned "self-sustaining city" in Idaho would include manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail centers and large numbers of homes for Chinese workers. Basically it would be a slice of communist China dropped right into the middle of the United States.
According to the Idaho Statesman, the idea would be to build a self-contained city with all services included. It would be modeled after the "special economic zones" that currently exist in China.
Perhaps the most famous of these "special economic zones" is Shenzhen. Back in the 1970s, Shenzhen was just a very small fishing village. Today it is a sprawling metropolis of over 14 million people.
If the Chinese have their way, we will soon be seeing these "special economic zones" pop up all over the United States.
So exactly who is "Sinomach"?
The following description of the company comes directly from the website of Sinomach….
With approval of the State Council, China National Machinery Industry Corporation (SINOMACH) was established in January 1997. SINO-MACH is a large scale, state-owned enterprise group under the supervision of the State Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.
As you can see, Sinomach is basically an arm of the Chinese government.
The borrower is always the servant of the lender, and now China is buying up America.
The reality is that Sinomach is not looking only at Idaho. Sinomach is in discussions to develop "special economic zones" all over the United States.
Sinomach has recently dispatched delegations to Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania to explore the possibility of establishing "special economic zones" in those states.
Will such "self-contained communities" soon start appearing from coast to coast?
According to Dr. Jerome Corsi, the U.S. government has already set up 257 "foreign trade zones" across America. These "foreign trade zones" will apparently be given "special U.S. customs treatment" and will be used to promote global free trade….
"The FTZs tend to be located near airports, with easy access into the continental NAFTA and WTO multi-modal transportation systems being created to move free-trade goods cheaply, quickly and efficiently throughout the continent of North America."
So what do our politicians think about all of this?
Most of them are greatly in favor of it.
"Idaho’s the last state that should say we don’t want to do business with Asia," Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little said last year. "Asia’s where the money is."
So will all of this "foreign investment" really bring jobs back to the American people?
Perhaps a few, but the truth is that these "special economic zones" that the Chinese are setting up are designed to be self-contained communist Chinese communities. Some Americans will likely be employed in these areas, but not nearly as many as our politicians would have you to believe.
In addition, these "special economic zones" represent a massive national security threat. The communist Chinese could potentially be able to bring in and store massive amounts of military equipment virtually undetected.
In the days of the Cold War, we would have never dreamed of giving the Russians a 50 square mile city in the middle of Idaho.
But today we have become convinced that the communist Chinese want to be our great friends.
The following quote originally appeared in the Idaho Statesman, but has since apparently been taken down….
"The Chinese are looking for a beachhead in the United States," said Idaho Commerce Secretary Don Dietrich. "Idaho is ready to give them one."
If relations between the U.S. and China go south someday, we will deeply regret giving China so many open doors.
The truth is that you can never fully trust the communist Chinese. Their top military officers talk about a coming conflict with the United States all the time. China is extremely interested in North America. In fact, the Chinese and the Mexicans have even been holding talks on military cooperation.
But even if you don't consider the communist Chinese to be a military threat, you should be deeply concerned about the economic implications of what is happening.
Today, tens of millions of Americans are wondering why the economy is so bad.
Well, there are a lot of reasons, but the fact that we have sent China thousands of our factories, millions of our jobs and trillions of dollars of our national wealth is a major contributing factor.
If you do not know the truth about how badly the Chinese economy is wiping the floor with the American economy then you need to read this article: "40 Signs The Chinese Economy Is Beating The Living Daylights Out Of The U.S. Economy".
Beautiful new infrastructure is going up all over China today, and meanwhile many of our once great manufacturing cities are turning into rotted-out war zones.
China would not be what they are today if we had insisted that they abandon the communist system and respect basic human rights before we ever opened up trade with them.
But that did not happen. Instead we enthusiastically welcomed China into the WTO and we let the predatory Chinese system run wild.
In 2010, China had a "current account balance" of over 272 billion dollars, which was the largest in the world.
In 2010, the United States had a "current account balance" of negative 561 billion dollars. According to the CIA world fact book, that put us in last place in the entire world. In fact, our negative current account balance was more than 9 times larger than anyone else in the world. If you go check out this chart it will give you a really good idea of how nightmarish our trade situation has become.
The world is changing and nothing is ever going to be the same again.
Just ask the residents of Boise, Idaho – they are about to have a 50 square mile self-contained communist Chinese city plopped right into their back yard.

Part two of a four-part series
by Dean Henderson
In 1789 Alexander Hamilton became the first Treasury Secretary of the United States. Hamilton was one of many Founding Fathers who were Freemasons. He had close relations with the Rothschild family which owns the Bank of England and leads the European Freemason movement. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, Ethan Allen, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, John Brown and Roger Sherman were all Masons.
Roger Livingston helped Sherman and Franklin write the Declaration of Independence. He gave George Washington his oaths of office while he was Grand Master of the New York Grand Lodge of Freemasons. Washington himself was Grand Master of the Virginia Lodge. Of the General Officers in the Revolutionary Army, thirty-three were Masons. This was highly symbolic since 33rd Degree Masons become Illuminated. 
Populist founding fathers led by John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Thomas Paine- none of whom were Masons- wanted to completely severe ties with the British Crown, but were overruled by the Masonic faction led by Washington, Hamilton and Grand Master of the St. Andrews Lodge in Boston General Joseph Warren, who wanted to “defy Parliament but remain loyal to the Crown”. St. Andrews Lodge was the hub of New World Masonry and began issuing Knights Templar Degrees in 1769. 
All US Masonic lodges are to this day warranted by the British Crown, whom they serve as a global intelligence and counterrevolutionary subversion network. Their most recent initiative is the Masonic Child Identification Program (CHIP). According to Wikipedia, the CHIP programs allow parents the opportunity to create a kit of identifying materials for their child, free of charge. The kit contains a fingerprint card, a physical description, a video, computer disk, or DVD of the child, a dental imprint, and a DNA sample.
The First Continental Congress convened in Philadelphia in 1774 under the Presidency of Peyton Randolph, who succeeded Washington as Grand Master of the Virginia Lodge. The Second Continental Congress convened in 1775 under the Presidency of Freemason John Hancock. Peyton’s brother William succeeded him as Virginia Lodge Grand Master and became the leading proponent of centralization and federalism at the First Constitutional Convention in 1787. The federalism at the heart of the US Constitution is identical to the federalism laid out in the Freemason’s Anderson’s Constitutions of 1723. William Randolph became the nation’s first Attorney General and Secretary of State under George Washington. His family returned to England loyal to the Crown. John Marshall, the nation’s first Supreme Court Justice, was also a Mason. 
When Benjamin Franklin journeyed to France to seek financial help for American revolutionaries, his meetings took place at Rothschild banks. He brokered arms sales via German Mason Baron von Steuben. His Committees of Correspondence operated through Freemason channels and paralleled a British spy network. In 1776 Franklin became de factoAmbassador to France. In 1779 he became Grand Master of the French Neuf Soeurs (Nine Sisters) Lodge, to which John Paul Jones and Voltaire belonged. Franklin was also a member of the more secretive Royal Lodge of Commanders of the Temple West of Carcasonne, whose members included Frederick Prince of Whales. While Franklin preached temperance in the US, he cavorted wildly with his Lodge brothers in Europe. Franklin served as Postmaster General from the 1750’s to 1775 – a role traditionally relegated to British spies. 
With Rothschild financing Alexander Hamilton founded two New York banks, including Bank of New York.  He died in a gun battle with Aaron Burr, who founded Bank of Manhattan with Kuhn Loeb financing. Hamilton exemplified the contempt which the Eight Families hold towards common people, once stating, “All communities divide themselves into the few and the many. The first are the rich and the well born, the others the mass of the people…The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom judge and determine right. Give therefore to the first class a distinct, permanent share of government. They will check the unsteadiness of the second.”
Hamilton was only the first in a series of Eight Families cronies to hold the key position of Treasury Secretary. In recent times Kennedy Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon came from Dillon Read (now part of UBS Warburg). Nixon Treasury Secretaries David Kennedy and William Simon came from Continental Illinois Bank (now part of Bank of America) and Salomon Brothers (now part of Citigroup), respectively. Carter Treasury Secretary Michael Blumenthal came from Goldman Sachs, Reagan Treasury Secretary Donald Regan came from Merrill Lynch (now part of Bank of America), Bush Sr. Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady came from Dillon Read (UBS Warburg) and both Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and Bush Jr. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson came from Goldman Sachs. Obama Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner worked at Kissinger Associates and the New York Fed.
Thomas Jefferson argued that the United States needed a publicly-owned central bank so that European monarchs and aristocrats could not use the printing of money to control the affairs of the new nation. Jefferson extolled, “A country which expects to remain ignorant and free…expects that which has never been and that which will never be. There is scarcely a King in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh – get first all the people’s money, then all their lands and then make them and their children servants forever…banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies. Already they have raised up a money aristocracy.” Jefferson watched as the Euro-banking conspiracy to control the United States unfolded, weighing in, “Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the day, but a series of oppressions begun at a distinguished period, unalterable through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery”. [7[
But the Rothschild-sponsored Hamilton’s arguments for a private US central bank carried the day. In 1791 the Bank of the United States (BUS) was founded, with the Rothschilds as main owners. The bank’s charter was to run out in 1811. Public opinion ran in favor of revoking the charter and replacing it with a Jeffersonian public central bank. The debate was postponed as the nation was plunged by the Euro-bankers into the War of 1812. Amidst a climate of fear and economic hardship, Hamilton’s bank got its charter renewed in 1816.
Old Hickory, Honest Abe & Camelot
In 1828 Andrew Jackson took a run at the US Presidency. Throughout his campaign he railed against the international bankers who controlled the BUS. Jackson ranted, “You are a den of vipers. I intend to expose you and by Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people understood the rank injustices of our money and banking system there would be a revolution before morning.”
Jackson won the election and revoked the bank’s charter stating, “The Act seems to be predicated on an erroneous idea that the present shareholders have a prescriptive right to not only the favor, but the bounty of the government…for their benefit does this Act exclude the whole American people from competition in the purchase of this monopoly. Present stockholders and those inheriting their rights as successors be established a privileged order, clothed both with great political power and enjoying immense pecuniary advantages from their connection with government. Should its influence be concentrated under the operation of such an Act as this, in the hands of a self-elected directory whose interests are identified with those of the foreign stockholders, will there not be cause to tremble for the independence of our country in war…controlling our currency, receiving our public monies and holding thousands of our citizens independence, it would be more formidable and dangerous than the naval and military power of the enemy. It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government for selfish purposes…to make the rich richer and more powerful. Many of our rich men have not been content with equal protection and equal benefits, but have besought us to make them richer by acts of Congress. I have done my duty to this country.”
Populism prevailed and Jackson was re-elected. In 1835 he was the target of an assassination attempt. The gunman was Richard Lawrence, who confessed that he was, “in touch with the powers in Europe”. 
Still, in 1836 Jackson refused to renew the BUS charter. Under his watch the US national debt went to zero for the first and last time in our nation’s history. This angered the international bankers, whose primary income is derived from interest payments on debt. BUS President Nicholas Biddle cut off funding to the US government in 1842, plunging the US into a depression. Biddle was an agent for the Paris-based Jacob Rothschild. 
The Mexican War was simultaneously sprung on Jackson. A few years later the Civil War was unleashed, with London bankers backing the Union and French bankers backing the South. The Lehman family made a fortune smuggling arms to the south and cotton to the north. By 1861 the US was $100 million in debt. New President Abraham Lincoln snubbed the Euro-bankers again, issuing Lincoln Greenbacks to pay Union Army bills.
The Rothschild-controlled Times of London wrote, “If that mischievous policy, which had its origins in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.” 
The Euro-banker-written Hazard Circular was exposed and circulated throughout the country by angry populists. It stated, “The great debt that capitalists will see is made out of the war and must be used to control the valve of money. To accomplish this government bonds must be used as a banking basis. We are now awaiting Secretary of Treasury Salmon Chase to make that recommendation. It will not allow Greenbacks to circulate as money as we cannot control that. We control bonds and through them banking issues”.
The 1863 National Banking Act reinstated a private US central bank and Chase’s war bonds were issued. Lincoln was re-elected the next year, vowing to repeal the act after he took his January 1865 oaths of office. Before he could act, he was assassinated at the Ford Theatre by John Wilkes Booth. Booth had major connections to the international bankers. His granddaughter wrote This One Mad Act, which details Booth’s contact with “mysterious Europeans” just before the Lincoln assassination.
Following the Lincoln hit, Booth was whisked away by members of a secret society known as Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC). KGC had close ties to the French Society of Seasons, which produced Karl Marx. KGC had fomented much of the tension that caused the Civil War and President Lincoln had specifically targeted the group. Booth was a KGC member and was connected through Confederate Secretary of State Judah Benjamin to the House of Rothschild. Benjamin fled to England after the Civil War. 
Nearly a century after Lincoln was assassinated for issuing Greenbacks, President John F. Kennedy found himself in the Eight Families’ crosshairs. Kennedy had announced a crackdown on off-shore tax havens and proposed increases in tax rates on large oil and mining companies. He supported eliminating tax loopholes which benefit the super-rich. His economic policies were publicly attacked by Fortune magazine, the Wall Street Journal and both David and Nelson Rockefeller. Even Kennedy’s own Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon, who came from the UBS Warburg-controlled Dillon Read investment bank, voiced opposition to the JFK proposals. 
Kennedy’s fate was sealed in June 1963 when he authorized the issuance of more than $4 billion in United States Notes by his Treasury Department in an attempt to circumvent the high interest rate usury of the private Federal Reserve international banker crowd. The wife of Lee Harvey Oswald, who was conveniently gunned down by Jack Ruby before Ruby himself was shot, told author A. J. Weberman in 1994, “The answer to the Kennedy assassination is with the Federal Reserve Bank. Don’t underestimate that. It’s wrong to blame it on Angleton and the CIA per se only. This is only one finger on the same hand. The people who supply the money are above the CIA”. 
Fueled by incoming President Lyndon Johnson’s immediate escalation of the Vietnam War, the US sank further into debt. Its citizens were terrorized into silence. If they could kill the President they could kill anyone.
The House of Rothschild
The Dutch House of Orange founded the Bank of Amsterdam in 1609 as the world’s first central bank. Prince William of Orange married into the English House of Windsor, taking King James II’s daughter Mary as his bride. The Orange Order Brotherhood, which recently fomented Northern Ireland Protestant violence, put William III on the English throne where he ruled both Holland and Britain. In 1694 William III teamed up with the UK aristocracy to launch the private Bank of England.
The Old Lady of Threadneedle Street- as the Bank of England is known- is surrounded by thirty foot walls. Three floors beneath it the third largest stock of gold bullion in the world is stored. 
The Rothschilds and their inbred Eight Families partners gradually came to control the Bank of England. The daily London gold “fixing” occurred at the N. M. Rothschild Bank until 2004. As Bank of England Deputy Governor George Blunden put it, “Fear is what makes the bank’s powers so acceptable. The bank is able to exert its influence when people are dependent on us and fear losing their privileges or when they are frightened.”
Mayer Amschel Rothschild sold the British government German Hessian mercenaries to fight against American Revolutionaries, diverting the proceeds to his brother Nathan in London, where N.M. (Nathan and Mayer) Rothschild & Sons was established. Mayer was a serious student of Cabala and launched his fortune on money embezzled from William IX- royal administrator of the Hesse-Kassel region and a prominent Freemason.
Rothschild-controlled Barings bankrolled the Chinese opium and African slave trades. It financed the Louisiana Purchase. When several states defaulted on its loans, Barings bribed Daniel Webster to make speeches stressing the virtues of loan repayment. The states held their ground, so the House of Rothschild cut off the money spigot in 1842, plunging the US into a deep depression. It was often said that the wealth of the Rothschilds depended on the bankruptcy of nations. Mayer Amschel Rothschild once said, “I care not who controls a nation’s political affairs, so long as I control her currency”.
War didn’t hurt the family fortune either. The House of Rothschild financed the Prussian War, the Crimean War and the British attempt to seize the Suez Canal from the French. Nathan Rothschild made a huge financial bet on Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo, while also funding the Duke of Wellington’s peninsular campaign against Napoleon. Both the Mexican War and the Civil War were goldmines for the family.
One Rothschild family biography mentions a London meeting where an “International Banking Syndicate” decided to pit the American North against the South as part of a “divide and conquer” strategy. German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck once stated, “The division of the United States into federations of equal force was decided long before the Civil War. These bankers were afraid that the United States…would upset their financial domination over the world. The voice of the Rothschilds prevailed.” Rothschild biographer Derek Wilson says the family was the official European banker to the US government and strong supporters of the Bank of the United States. 
Family biographer Niall Ferguson notes a “substantial and unexplained gap” in private Rothschild correspondence between 1854-1860. He says all copies of outgoing letters written by the London Rothschilds during this Civil War period “were destroyed at the orders of successive partners”. 
French and British troops had, at the height of the Civil War, encircled the US. The British sent 11,000 troops to Crown-controlled Canada, which gave safe harbor to Confederate agents. France’s Napoleon III installed Austrian Hapsburg family member Archduke Maximilian as his puppet emperor in Mexico, where French troops massed on the Texas border. Only an 11th-hour deployment of two Russian warship fleets by US ally Czar Alexander II in 1863 saved the United States from re-colonization. 
That same year the Chicago Tribune blasted, “Belmont (August Belmont was a US Rothschild agent and had a Triple Crown horse race named in his honor) and the Rothschilds…who have been buying up Confederate war bonds.”
Salmon Rothschild said of a deceased President Lincoln, “He rejects all forms of compromise. He has the appearance of a peasant and can only tell barroom stories.” Baron Jacob Rothschild was equally flattering towards the US citizenry. He once commented to US Minister to Belgium Henry Sanford on the over half a million Americans who died during the Civil War, “When your patient is desperately sick, you try desperate measures, even to bloodletting.” Salmon and Jacob were merely carrying forth a family tradition. A few generations earlier Mayer Amschel Rothschild bragged of his investment strategy, “When the streets of Paris are running in blood, I buy”. 
Mayer Rothschild’s sons were known as the Frankfurt Five. The eldest – Amschel – ran the family's Frankfurt bank with his father, while Nathan ran London operations. Youngest son Jacob set up shop in Paris, while Salomon ran the Vienna branch and Karl was off to Naples. Author Frederick Morton estimates that by 1850 the Rothschilds were worth over $10 billion.  Some researchers believe that their fortune today exceeds $100 trillion.
The Warburgs, Kuhn Loebs, Goldman Sachs, Schiffs and Rothschilds have intermarried into one big happy banking family. The Warburg family- which controls Deutsche Bank and BNP– tied up with the Rothschilds in 1814 in Hamburg, while Kuhn Loeb powerhouse Jacob Schiff shared quarters with Rothschilds in 1785. Schiff immigrated to America in 1865. He joined forces with Abraham Kuhn and married Solomon Loeb’s daughter. Loeb and Kuhn married each others sisters and the Kuhn Loeb dynasty was consummated. Felix Warburg married Jacob Schiff’s daughter. Two Goldman daughters married two sons of the Sachs family, creating Goldman Sachs. In 1806 Nathan Rothschild married the oldest daughter of Levi Barent Cohen, a leading financier in London.  Thus, Merrill Lynch super-bull Abby Joseph Cohen and Clinton Secretary of Defense William Cohen are likely descended from Rothschilds.
Today the Rothschild’s control a far-flung financial empire, which includes majority stakes in most world central banks. The Edmond de Rothschild clan owns the Banque Privee SA in Lugano, Switzerland and the Rothschild Bank AG of Zurich. The family of Jacob Lord Rothschild owns the powerful Rothschild Italia in Milan. They are founding members of the exclusive $10 trillion Club of the Isles – which controls corporate giants Royal Dutch Shell, Imperial Chemical Industries, Lloyds of London, Unilever, Barclays, Lonrho, Rio Tinto Zinc, BHP Billiton and Anglo American DeBeers. It dominates the world supply of petroleum, gold, diamonds, and many other vital raw materials. 
The Club of the Isles provides capital for George Soros’ Quantum Fund NV – which made substantial financial gains in 1998-99 following the collapse of currencies of Thailand, Indonesia and Russia. Soros was a major shareholder at George W. Bush’s Harken Energy. The Club of Isles is led by the Rothschilds and includes Queen Elizabeth II and other wealthy European aristocrats and Nobility.
Perhaps the largest repository for Rothschild wealth today is Rothschilds Continuation Holdings AG – a secretive Swiss-based bank holding company. By the late 1990s scions of the Rothschild global empire were Barons Guy and Elie de Rothschild in France and Lord Jacob and Sir Evelyn Rothschild in Britain. 
Evelyn was chairman of the Economist and a director at DeBeers and IBM UK.
Jacob backed Arnold Schwarzenegger’s California gubernatorial campaign. He took control of Khodorkovsky’s YUKOS oil shares just before the Russian government arrested him. In 2010 Jacob joined Rupert Murdoch in a shale oil extraction partnership in Israel through Genie Energy – a subsidiary of IDT Corporation. 
Within months, Sarah Palin had hired former IDT executive Michael Glassner as her chief of staff.  Is Palin the Rothschild choice in 2012?

By Jon Christian Ryter
June 8, 2011
The Finance Ministers of 187 nations began meeting in Washington, DC on Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010 to discuss the growing concerns that the world is now in the grip of an "international currency war" initiated by China. According to the liberal British newspaper, The Guardian, China's economic policies started the "war" by manipulating its own currency to an unrealistic low. In a media interview at the end of September, Brazil's Finance Minister, Guido Mantega coined the phrase, "international currency war," after the central banks in Japan, South Korea, Switzerland and Taiwan reduced the value of their currencies to make the commodities manufactured in their countries more attractive to foreign buyers. Brazil is one of those nation's impacted by China's currency policies. It's currency is now overvalued, placing Brazil at a disadvantage in the world of global trade.
On Mon., Oct. 4 the Bank of Japan reinstated its zero interest rate policy and pledged to buy ¥5 trillion ($60 billion) of assets. Brazil responded by doubling a Brazilian tax on foreign investors (currency hedge funds like George Soros' Soros Fund Management and Quantum Fund which Soros used to nearly collapse the Bank of England) while cashing in on the declining value of the Euro, earning Soros and an undisclosed group of hedge fund operators in New York hundreds of billions of dollars betting against the Euro).
Soros, like Barack Obama and recently-resigned Obama Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel never lets a good crisis go to waste. It is important to note that currency manipulation—particularly by the Soros-led hedge funds—was one of the triggers that caused what we now know as the global financial crisis of 2008-09. In the pre-global economy days, the shock-waves of local or host-market currency crises were regional rather than global. As banking became more globalized, so too were the consequences of financial shocks waves which now have profound effects across the globe. The Soros run on the Euro actually triggered a decomposition of private capital flows from Europe into the emerging markets, threatening billions of dollars of debt invested by Europeans and Corporate America in the emerging economies in their frantic search for those elusive potential consumers of the 21st century from what is now a global pool of human capital created by 37 years of mistaken social progressive abortion policy. (For every "action" there's a reaction—and for every human folly there is a cost. The loss the Christian industrialized nations are paying for nearly four decades of abortion rights is the loss of our national identities and our national sense of well-being. Welcome to Utopia.)
The catastrophic financial crisis blamed on President George W. Bush was real. It just wasn't real here. It began in 2002 with a slowdown of capital direct investment by US investors in the emerging nations as more US investors, feeling a renewed sense of hope and patriotism about America, invested at home. According to the International Monetary Fund's April, 2009World Economic Outlook Report, the decomposition of private capital flows fueled the fire that created the financial crisis. International capital flow into the emerging economies dropped dramatically between 2007 and 2008—to the tune of about $530 billion, with most of the decline coming from Asia and Europe.
The subprime mortgage collapse in the United States—triggered specifically by hedge fund short sellers (who sold the bottom out of the mortgage industry because they were allowed, by the repeal of the 1934 Uptick Rule, to do so) and the Soros raid on the Euro, were largely responsible for the sudden illiquidity of banks in the industrial world. The illiquidity shock wave reverberated around the world. Central bankers feared a monetary collapse was inevitable if funds were not poured—not into the US and European economies but—into the economies of the emerging nations where financial illiquidity threatened to shatter the global banking infrastructure and cause a domino-collapse of the central banks of the world.
Both the United States and England raced to enact financial crisis bailouts. Both the elected political leaders of the United States and England were lied to by the central bankerswho planned, before one piece of legislation was even proposed, to hijack the bailout funds that American and British taxpayers were told would be used to buoy their local economies, to bolster the second and third world economies that actually threatened to collapse the world's monetary system—literally bankrupting the United States and Europe as it salvaged the economies of the emerging nations where 70% of the world's human capital resides. That human capital, which has nothing and needs everything, is the market upon which the princes of industry and barons of banking and business are pinning their hopes of a profitable 21st century—at the expense of the rest of us. (Can you say, "Thank you, Barack, Nancy and Harry"? ObamaChange, as America is quickly learning, has nothing to do with taking the "surplus" from the rich in the United States and giving that "surplus" to the poor in America. Rather, it is the redistribution of the national wealth of the United States to the third world—tomorrow's consumers of the invisible ultra rich whose names do not appear on the Forbes or Fortune lists of the world's wealthiest people.)
About a week or so before the world's Finance Ministers came to Washington on October 7, 2010, the Institute of International Finance which represents some of the largest banks in the world, urged the International Monetary Fund to take unilateral action after the Bank of Japan moved to lower its interest rates to 0.1% specifically to weaken the yen to in order to better compete with China's yuan. Social progressives, forgetting the lessons of German hyperinflation in the late 1920s and early 1930s, have suggested to the Obama Administration that they have one weapon they can use against China—the printing press. Simply print enough money to pay off America's debt to China with worthless money if China does not revalue the yuan.
Better yet is the measure enacted by a 348-79 vote in the House of Representatives on September 29 (just before the House recessed) that would allow the United States to impose trade sanctions against any nation that manipulates their currency to gain trade advantages. China's devaluation, and that of Japan, makes products manufactured in those two countries much cheaper in the United States and, conversely, makes US products searching for a customer in Japan or China, more expensive. The measure was sent to the Senate just before adjournment. The bill's fate is unknown since its unclear whether the Senate will enact the legislation in the lame duck session after the Nov. 2 elections. Democrats are telling their constituents that the sanctions bill, HR 2194 which amends theTariff Act of 1930 will return millions of jobs to the United States. Republicans realistically know that the sanctions bill, if enacted and signed into law, will add about 10% onto the cost of most Chinese products sold in US stores and will not impact job growth. On the heels of the House passing the measure, China said the legislation contravenes World Trade Organizationrules. Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama have refused to recognize China as a currency manipulator out of fear of retaliation from the country that bought most of America's debt until Obama's rush to destroy the US dollar.
The World Bank entered the money fray on Oct. 7, warning the G-20 nations against launching a global currency war with World Bank president Robert B. Zoellick vying for more international cooperation to stem what looks like a currency war as the Asian rim nations demand greater voting power on currency issues. "Today," Zoellick said, "we face currency tensions. Tensions can lead to trouble if not properly managed…If ever there was a time we should shouldn't turn our backs on international cooperation, it's now. History shows there is no future in 'beggar thy neighbor' policies."Zoellick alluded the international trade wars that broke out during the Great Depression and worsened the economic conditions throughout the industrialized world.
The international currency war began with China devaluing the renminbi (commonly referred to as the yuan) by about 40%, creating the biggest trade distortion in the global economy: America's trade deficit with China. Many currency experts believe that the dispute between the renminbi and the US dollar has such far-reaching consequences that it will impact the currencies of every industrialized nation in the world. That's why the debate at the 2011 G-20 will be focused on the need to engineer a currency accord like the Plaza Accord at the end of the Carter Years in 1980 where a basket of currencies was going to replace the dollar as the world's "currency of last resort," which led to a global devaluation of the US dollar.
French president Nicholas Sarkozy, who will host the 2011 G-20, has already suggested that the United States, the European Union and other unnamed nations should work with China to find a currency accord before the G-20 Conference next year. An attempt to lay out the framework for such an accord, proffered to China this week, was a nonstarter. The one-worlders want to introduce a new currency, issued by the World Bank to ultimately replace all 187 national currencies. China is slightly less ambitious. They want the renminbi (the yuan) to replace the US dollar as the world's reserve currency.
China simply is not interested in negotiating the issue. Zoellick noted that the time has come for resolving trade differences amicably. "There should be a common interest in trying to figure out how to manage this," he said. "Maybe the time has come. Sometimes when you have a moment like this, it's important to try to steer it in constructive direction." Zoellick noted that China has benefited greatly from its undervalued currency while other nations have suffered from it.to leave behind.

Anyway, you slice it, every known government has been under the dominion of those who control the currency, yet every Nation has followed their government to destruction. What in the hell is wrong with humanity, when they refuse to read the history of governments, and suffer the loss of freedom time after time?
It’s not like we’re confronted with a new problem that has never been heard of before folk’s, and the real kicker is, the stupid Nation’s go to war and kill each other, rather than the Bankers.
Mark my words, it’s happening again, and the Banker are laughing their ass off at our stupid obedience to the propaganda they spread.
Soon, you will be sending more of your children to die, and when America goes belly-up, those same children will be sent to herd you into detention camps, prior to your elimination.
History keeps repeating it-self, only this time we have a nappy headed Hitler that needs a teleprompter to give you thrills of Patriotism and Sacrifice. And, in spite of the internet revolution and the thousands of education sites, not one damn site is calling for the Bankers heads.
