Subject: Police State
None in human history compare to America. It's by far the most lawless. It's the world's most egregious civil and human rights abuser.
It's done more harm to more people for longer than any combination of other nations. None match its ruthlessness.
It's genocidal legacy is longstanding. It began in pre-colonial days. Expanding America from sea to shining sea claimed tens of millions of lives.
Mass extermination became policy. Centuries of slaughter reduced America's indigenous population to a tiny fraction of its original numbers.
Ward Churchill's chilling quote bears repeating. He minced no words, saying:
Millions were "hacked apart with axes and swords, burned alive and trampled under horses, hunted as game and fed to dogs, shot, beaten, stabbed, scalped for bounty, hanged on meathooks and thrown over the sides of ships at sea, worked to death as slave laborers, intentionally starved and frozen to death during a multitude of forced marches and internments, and, in an unknown number of instances, deliberately infected with epidemic diseases."
Five centuries of slavery were horrific. Black Africans were captured, branded, chained, force-marched, beaten, encaged, and stripped of their humanity.
Around 100 million were sold like cattle. Millions perished during the Middle Passage.
Imagine packing human beings like cargo. Imagine them under deplorable conditions. Imagine them in coffin-sized spaces.
Imagine practically one atop others in extreme discomfort. Imagine poor ventilation, dysentery, smallpox, ophthalmia, and other epidemic-level diseases.
Imagine dark, filthy, slimy, bloody, vomity conditions below deck. Imagine it filled with human excrement.
Imagine women beaten and raped. Imagine claustrophobia driving some victims insane.
Imagine floggings and clubbings to death. Imagine anyone thought diseased dumped overboard like garbage.
Imagine 50 million or more lost lives. Imagine slave traders calling it a cost of doing business.
Genocidal US policy continues in new forms. Mass murder proceeds efficiently.
Technological advances facilitate it. America's killing machine knows no limits. One genocide follows others.
Countries are ravaged and destroyed. Neither world war should have been waged. Tens of millions died needlessly.
Making the world safe for democracy is a convenient illusion. America tolerates it nowhere.
Achieving unchallenged raw power drives US policy. Mass slaughtering human beings doesn't matter.
Imperial Japan was defeated many months before WW II ended. In February and March 1945, Tokyo was gratuitously firebombed twice.
So were many other Japanese cities. Hundreds of thousands of civilians perished. Millions were left homeless.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki were two of history's great crimes. Imaging incinerating civilians gratuitously.
Imagine horrific radiation poisoning. Imagine disfigurations and birth defects. Imagine the effects of what happened still being felt.
Imagine no apologies for generations of crimes. Imagine turning North Korea into rubble. Imagine running out of targets to bomb.
Imagine an uneasy armistice persisting. Imagine possible nuclear war erupting. Imagine East Asia caught in the fallout.
Imagine crazed US policymakers bearing full responsibility. Imagine Washington's unparalleled killing machine power.
Imagine ruthlessness writ large. Imagine horrendous suffering beyond human comprehension. Imagine all humanity threatened.
America's post-WW II ravaging repeats with disturbing regularity. Southeast Asia was laid waste. Proxy wars killed millions worldwide.
All US direct, indirect and supported wars have no rules. Laws of war are ignored. Rampaging goes unchecked.
America was complicit in Rwandan massacres. Desert Storm was a well-planned criminal attack.
Essential to life facilities were destroyed. Tens of thousands were gratuitously slaughtered.
Twelve years of genocidal sanctions followed. Children under age five suffered most. Bush II killed millions more.
Afghanistan remains America's longest war. No end in sight looms. The cradle of civilization was destroyed.
Free market plunder replaced it. Inside the bubble is paradise. Outside reflects dystopian hell.
Balkan wars destroyed the former Yugoslavia. They culminated in US-led NATO terror-bombing Serbia/Kosovo.
Thousands of sorties ravaged and destroyed them. Imagine considering schools, churches, hospitals and cultural landmarks strategic targets.
Imagine a gratuitous humanitarian disaster. Imagine it against one nonthreatening country after another.
Libya remains a cauldron of violence. No one is safe anywhere. Obama's war on Syria continues. Iran's turn awaits.
Expect other targeted countries to be attacked. Expect no safe place to hide.
Imagine the supreme crime of aggression. Imagine it ongoing in multiple theaters.
Imagine America's dirty handiwork. Imagine crimes too grim to ignore. Imagine genocide as official policy.
Imagine new victims following earlier ones. Imagine dead bodies piling up. Imagine young boys and girls. Imagine the elderly, infirm and disabled.
Imagine America bearing full responsibility for devastated landscapes. Imagine what desperately needs ending continued.
Imagine humanity threatened. Imagine media scoundrels cheerleading what demands condemnation.
Imagine supporting Israel's killing machine. Imagine billions of annual aid dollars supporting it.
Imagine ongoing subjugating talks called peace ones. Imagine longstanding occupation turning Palestine into a virtual open-air prison.
Imagine being denied all rights. Imagine world leaders turning a blind eye. Imagine dying for many being their only escape.
Imagine what no human being should tolerate being done to another.
Imagine Washington and Israel partnering in each other's crimes. Imagine both nations being lawless warrior states.
Imagine them using weapons causing injuries, disfigurements and other effects never seen before.
Imagine unparalleled barbarism. Imagine crimes against humanity without end. Imagine weapons able to end life on earth. Imagine possibly using them.
Imagine hubris writ large threatening everyone. Imagine overreach risking armageddon.
Washington's Ukrainian agenda reflects its latest imperial adventurism. Protests didn't erupt by chance.
They were well-planned in advance. At issue is weakening and isolating Russia. It's turning Kiev West, not East. It's plundering its resources. It's exploiting its people.
It's incorporating all former Soviet republics and Warsaw pact countries into NATO. It's establishing US bases on Russia's borders.
It's having nuclear-armed missiles targeting its heartland.
Including Ukraine in NATO risks WW III.
America, Israel and key EU partners comprise the real axis of evil. They're out-of-control rogue states.
Former French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau (1841 – 1929) once said "America is the only nation in history which miraculously has gone directly from barbarism to degeneration without the usual interval of civilization."
Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900) said the same thing. He called patriotism "the virtue of the vicious."
George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950) called democracy "a form of government that substitutes elections by the incompetent many for the appointment of the corrupt few."
Perhaps he had America in mind. Obama's rap sheet reflects the worst of its policies. He's in charge until January 2017.
He's got lots more warmaking in mind. He plans hardening America's police state apparatus. He wants dissent silenced.
He wants opposition crushed. He wants freedom destroyed. It hangs by a thread. So does world peace.
Neocon infested Washington wages war on humanity. Obama risks extinguishing it altogether. Stopping him matters most.
Resistance is crucial. It's our only defense. Solidarity unites us. We're all in this together. We're on our own to survive.

It’s after reading articles like this that I would give all I own for the ability to write as clearly as Jefferson’s Voice, Stephen Lendman, Brandon Smith, Brandon Turbeville, and so many other great word smiths. Not to make money or fame, but to create a hole in the hearts of many readers and fill it with elucidations they would never forget. Please forgive my uneducated word fumbles as I try to explain the agony of discovering how complicit I have been in the past with this excruciatingly false patriotism that makes us convinced we were doing good by killing and other atrocities to our fellow human beings. Now that I know the real circumstances surrounding Americas’ wars, and how I, and so many others ate it up like feeding a starving man, my shame is an unbearable stench in my mind. What makes it even worse is there are still men I love like brothers should, who would reject me forever without even considering why I have changed, if they read this. Since I am not a silver tongued gymnast, I feel challenged to express my hatred of the people who created an education, and media industry that would turn normal human beings into brutal murders of other humans while glorying in a sense of rightist superiority. The past history of the United States of America is no doubt why there are so few interested in studying history. Once you learn the truth, it’s damn hard to look in a mirror. I pray my brothers will take the time to learn why I can no longer praise my country. All it took was a hand full of genius Bankers, and we became stupid brain washed monsters. At this point in our history, we must redeem our selves by sending these Bankers and their elite lackeys to an agonizing extermination. We must never again let our country become A Nation Beguiled. This is not a denial of responsibility for our atrocities, but an acknowledgement of how we were made to feel justified by being loyal to a piece of cloth. Being free from government tyranny (the Bankers Pawns) means being constantly informed and alert to subversive politicians as they attempt to follow orders from above. Never think for a moment that we are choosing the lesser of two evils, as elections are the most polluted of all their tools. The statist mentality is an admission of being totally uninformed. Only weak minded people need leaders, as the laws of nature are imprinted on an informed mind. Never believe you need a collage degree to know right from wrong. It’s written on your heart. If we continue to believe the lies of the politicians we will be eliminated.

"No earthly government has jurisdiction over your God Given Rights."
No one can deny the effects that the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC) has had on the United States of America. President Dwight D. Eisenhower aptly warned the world what would inevitably develop when any nation commits itself to a perpetual war economy. Or, maintains such a large military during peacetime.
However, very few understand that the MIC was only one component of a much larger complex now known as the Government-Corporate Complex. Truly, it is the Government-Corporate Complex (GCC) which poses a much greater threat to world peace and social order, global financial security and economic stability, as well as the integrity of the biosphere and environmental protection.
Was the Military-Industrial Complex actually a red herring?
Studying the MIC as a microcosm of the GCC can be quite instructive and revealing about how the much bigger GCC entity operates throughout the world today. It it true that even in times of relative peace, the MIC does everything within its power to ensure it’s prosperity, just as the Department of Defense (read War) does everything to ensure its survival during periods without war. In so doing, the MIC has been hard-wired from its very inception to guarantee the millions employed by the countless defense-related industries and services a paycheck, no matter what the prospects for war-making. Which is one of the primary reasons why so much enthusiastic support for all things military has always reigned supreme in the political process of the USA. And so it will for the foreseeable future.
However, there is a much more profound reason about how and why the USA was destined to become the “Military Arm of the New World Order“. The very notion of the Military-Industrial Complex was first publicized as both a diversion away from as well as an unwitting clue about the “real 800 pound gorilla” that has been clandestinely flexing its muscles across the planet for many decades, if not centuries.
“800 pound gorilla” is an American English expression for a person or organization so powerful that it can act without regard to the rights of others or the law. The phrase is rooted in a riddle:
“Where does an 800 lb. gorilla sit?”
“Anywhere it wants to.”
This highlights the disparity of power between the “800 lb. gorilla” and everything else.
The term can describe a powerful geopolitical and military force, or, in business, a powerful corporate entity that has such a large majority percentage of whatever market they compete within that they can use that strength to crush would-be competitors. (Source: Wikipedia)
When The Government Colludes With The Corporate Titans –> FASCISM
With the chartering of the very first corporations in the USA came the purposeful and inexorable development of the Government-Corporate Complex. Today, the resulting fascist corporatocracy exerts its power in civil society throughout every sphere of life. In matters of law and order, and war and peace, this “800 pound gorilla” acts with an impunity that rivals the imperialism of Rome*.
The ever-present fasces of the Roman Empire were paraded throughout the far reaches of the empire, wherever naked and brutal force was required to keep the newly conquered kingdoms and tribes in check. The very same “bound bundle of wooden rods with protruding axe-blade” sits right on the front wall behind the podium (two fasces on either side) in the main chamber of the US House of Representatives in the nation’s capital.
*The term fascismo is derived from the Latin word fasces. The fasces, which consisted of a bundle of rods that were tied around an axe, was an ancient Roman symbol of the authority of the civic magistrate. They were carried by his lictors and could be used for corporal and capital punishment at his command. The word fascismo also relates to political organizations in Italy known as fasci, groups similar to guilds or syndicates.
Just in case you can’t identify the two fasces on either side of the podium, here’s some assistance.
Doesn’t this beg the question as to why such a prominent symbol behind the speaker’s podium in the House Chamber is the same as that of Imperial Rome?
In case you can’t recognize the various elements in the fasces, each one has a quite imposing axe-head protruding from the very top of the bundle of sticks. The entire ax can be seen clearly in the photo below.
We don’t mean to belabor this subject, but the fasces does represent the manner in which the US Federal Government now imposes its will on its citizens at home, as well as on numerous conquered nations abroad. In short the current and previous US Administrations have been viewed in the same light as those of the hegemonic British Empire, as well as the Imperial ‘Holy’ Roman Empire.
The Constitutional Republic of the USA, in fact, has deeps roots sunk into both of these centuries-old forms of governance, as we are all instructed as young students. What is not taught, however, is the extent to which the actual power structure of the US Government mimics the most tyrannical aspects of Imperial Rome and despotic tendencies of the more recent British Empire.
This 800 Pound Gorilla Really Knows How To Swing An Axe
Perhaps it is now much easier to comprehend the quite formidable foe of the people which results when the government works in close tandem with the corporate sector. Truly, these two entities do represent a fearsome tandem, especially when they combine forces in such a deliberate and coordinated manner. Who, or what, can possibly stop such a Goliath? Who would dare when all the Davids (people like Edward Snowden) are literally “run out of town” … forever.
The government side of this modern-day Goliath is, of course, collectively represented by the POTUS, SCOTUS, CONGRESS, NSA, CIA, DIA, FBI, Pentagon, etc. As a conglomerate of various institutions, agencies and organs of government, the US Corporation does interpenetrate every major corporate entity in the USA. The revolving door between all the major corporations and the government sector is well known and well documented. With the beginning of each newly elected US administration, the number of CEOs and other corporate officers who are chosen to fill regulatory positions of the very industries they came from is quite shocking. It has become expected that the “fox is now always guarding the hen house” throughout the Executive Branch of American Government.
Given the current state of affairs of campaign finance, lobbyists and their corporate overlords control the legislative process in way that is equally stunning. That the healthcare lobbyists actually wrote the Affordable Care Act is the most egregious example of how the US Federal Government has been completely taken over. Obamacare represents the quintessential example of the Government-Corporate Complex at work. As the most flawed piece of legislation in US history, Obamacare has consistently eluded those who know it must be repealed. Even powerful senators and corporate titans who have demonstrated how it will bankrupt America are powerless to annul such a cost-prohibitive, overwhelmingly inefficient, and profoundly defective law.
Just as interlocking directorships ensure a very collegial and crony-like club among all the major corporations of the world, the governmental organs of the USA walk in lockstep with every other cooperative government around the world when circumstances necessitates, or the modern emperors dictate. In virtually every case of transnational collaboration, it should be noted that it is the government’s business that is being conducted, not the people’s.
As an example, there have been numerous occasions where the US Government has worked hand-in-hand with the UK Monarchy, especially the British Crown, Parliament, MI5, MI6, Scotland Yard, etc., as well as with many of the other Western Powers (read NATO). The highly protested Iraq War was a perfect example of one nation giving unlawful cover for another nation (UK provided cover for the US). This ever-morphing international arrangement permits several of the most powerful nations to project their military power with little or no threat from the weaker nations or their leaders.
When looked at in the aggregate, it is as though the Government-Corporate Complex has taken the form an octopus wrapping itself around the entire globe. It has, in fact, become a monolithic, amorphous superstructure of global power that answers to none one. Although it’s true structure and organization can only be conjectured, a World Shadow Government surely exists that oversees the national governments of the world. Even at that ultra-classified level of secrecy, the movement between high level government service and corporate leadership is a fact of life.
Because of the ever-revolving doors over may decades between public service and the corporate arena, these two major sectors of society have become not only inseparable, but also exceedingly aligned in both purpose and the execution of shared agendas. This is where the real problems begins. Especially to the extent that the Government-Corporate Complex interests are not properly aligned with those of the citizenry, does this problem have the potential to become greatly exacerbated and nettlesome for the governed.
In the case of those living in the USA in 2014 and beyond, it’s clear that the will of the people has never been so disrespected and scorned (taxation with virtually no representation), as the people themselves have been openly abused and victimized (think TSA body scans, Tasers without provocation, Childhood vaccination regimes, Chemtrail spraying everywhere, Smart meters without approval, Fluoride put into the water supplies, etc.)
Weapons of Choice of the Government-Corporate Complex
“Whereas Corporations use the impervious “Shield of Limited Liability” with great effect, it is their “Deep Coffers of Influence-Peddling” that allow them to serve their narrow and selfish interests with virtual impunity. The Government, on the other hand, uses the “Threat of Criminal Prosecution“, “Predatory Taxation” and “Oppressive Laws” to keep the citizenry from straying from the reservation.” ~ State of the Nation
This convenient marriage between the government and the corporations has truly become the greatest bane of post-modern existence. The viability of life on Earth is more at stake than ever because of how the biosphere is manipulated by those few who sit at the very peak of the pyramid of the globalist’s World Shadow Government (WSG). These global controllers, by and large, directly oversee all the major corporations and most powerful governments across the planet. Their wish is everyone else’s command, and they will not brook any opposition to their government/corporate agendas or interference with their extra-national political plans … anywhere or anytime.
It is through the absolutist, top-down, fear-driven dynamic of exercising fascist power by which every large corporate entities can be easily controlled from the very pinnacle of the World Shadow Government. Each and every corporate entity can be easily controlled when faced with the threat of either federal or state prosecution. Likewise, they can be corralled into a pen of the government’s making through selective predatory taxation and oppressive legislation unfavorable to their industry or business.
Control the President, CEO, and/or Board of Directors of any corporation (or large organization) and you control all of the subordinates below.
This very same principle is what empowered the Roman legions to conquer and maintain control over so many lands. Ditto that for the Hellenic (Greek) Empire of Alexander the Great, as well as the various Pharaonic Dynasties of Egypt. This control matrix is based on a number of simple equations and formulae which have been utilized since time immemorial to rule the masses. Hierarchies of power and control have forever been built into organizations that are structured to exert absolute authority within any given society or nation.
The primary equation, which operates 24/7 within virtually every the control matrix on Planet Earth today, looks like this. Confer absolute authority upon the top positions of any corporation or government agency, and offer a compensation package which makes it extremely difficult for those in charge to leave the reservation. When CEO comp schemes are looked at closely, it becomes clear that each element is designed to ensure unquestioning compliance … with the dictates of those who really run Corporate America.
Golden parachutes and golden handcuffs, as they are known, include exceptionally attractive financial incentives to play the corporate game all the way to retirement. Stock options, deferred compensation, various bonus and incentive plans, company perks such as free housing, transportation, vacations, dining, etc. can add up to substantial sums of money. Each of these components of executive compensation contributes to the current culture of universal CEO compliance. When the actual CEO compensations schemes are calculated accurately, it will be understood that they even exceed the obscene pay packages that have been trumpeted by the OCCUPY movement!
CEO-To-Worker Pay Ratio Ballooned 1,000 Percent Since 1950: Report
Once this simple compensation dynamic is firmly put into place, all the direct reports to the President or CEO, Agency Director or Cabinet Secretary, must obey the leader. Not to do so jeopardizes one’s job, one’s career, one’s entire future. It particularly endangers one’s income stream which one is accustomed to. Once pampered or spoiled by life’s luxuries, it is ever so difficult to relinquish them for a life of mediocrity or worse.
If these carrots don’t work with a rogue corporate leader, there is always the threat of criminal prosecution for real or fabricated charges which can be trumped up for effect anytime the State Attorney wants to do so. You’ve heard the phrase that any Grand Jury in America can, and will, “indict a ham sandwich” if the DA wants it to. Well, it’s entirely true, and it happen every day of the week. Politically motivated prosecutions have, in fact, become so commonplace that they serve to keep everyone (we mean Everyone on the planet) watching in check.
Corporatization of the marketplace has exposed everyone to the same threats and risks. Globalization has likewise created new fears and anxieties.
Herein lies the most potent force in the enforcement of and discipline found within pyramidal power structures across the planet. Fear of not being able to meet the most basic needs of life hounds almost everyone at some point of their lives. This primordial fear is so profound and hardwired into human existence that it is easily used as a tool of control and manipulation. Hence, we see both the Hegelian Dialectic and Divide and Conquer strategies of the elites employing this basic principle with awesome effect, wherever and however they choose to implement them.
As a means of control of all publicly held corporations, these enforcement measures can be taken whenever necessary by those who truly control the Corporatocracy. As previously stated, all the real controllers have to do is exert maximum control over the President or CEO or Board Chairman. Once this is accomplished, the real controllers can keep the thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of other corporate employees in check. The MO is quite simple: No compliance; no paycheck. Isn’t that how everyone across corporate America is kept in check everywhere … 24/7? Now that’s human resource leverage!
In this way those globalists (read Gorillas) “who truly control the realm” don’t really have to throw their weight around or beat their chests very much. All the disciplinary actions and intermittent firings, demotions and reassignments, downsizings and consolidations, mergers and acquisitions, divestments and realignments, etc. are left up to just a few corporate officers to approve and duly execute. If an employee’s ‘infraction’ or insubordination or whistle-blowing is a serious one, the individual may never receive a good reference in the same business or industry again. Being blackballed like this is also used with equal effect throughout all the professional associations such as the ABA, AMA, ADA, APA and AAA. Those are the certifying bodies with the relevant control mechanisms in place for law, medical, dental, psychiatric, and accounting respectively.
On the macro level, globalization has subjected every nation and state, province and city, business and industry, corporation and company to extraordinary pressures and risks. With the passage of new legislation or cancellation of old trade agreements, any given marketplace can be rearranged in a New York minute, as they so often are. The “800 pound corporate gorilla” is usually the immediate beneficiary of these swift or slow changes in law that lobbyists have often written from beginning to end. As an example, an organic farmer in South Georgia can be put out of business in a day and a night if the farmer next door is planting Monsanto GMO seeds of the same crop.
There are so many other threats that rampant corporatization of the marketplace has created that it is beyond the scope of this essay to further explore. As a blatant example, however, of how much can go awry, one need look no further than the continuing Walmart saga of small town destruction to understand the far-reaching ramifications to Main Street, America. Here is how one commentator put it when examining some of the few repercussions of corporate destruction on a vulnerable nation such as India.
“Let’s pick a country. Let’s go to India and visit Bhopal of Union Carbide fame. Close to 8000 people died within two weeks of that December day in 1984 in what is known as the worst industrial disaster of the last century. Now that Dow Chemical owns Union Carbide, you can only imagine the veritable phalanx of attorneys who are paid unconscionable fees to ensure proper responsibility and accountability will never be assumed by their master.
Or let’s visit the Punjab and talk to the thousands of widows of farmers who committed suicide because of Monsanto’s “seedless seeds”. Or go to just about anywhere on that subcontinent where a Walmart is being protested for land theft, encroachment and despoilation. Let’s not forget about all the Coca Cola bottling plants that have become notorious for stealing the most precious commodity that every Indian cherishes and covets – WATER. Well, that takes care of land, water, air … and blood. What else in heaven’s name do these stakeholders want?!”
World War I, The Great Depression and World War II Consolidated the Power of the Fascist Corporatocracy
The entire 20th century was primarily about one thing. Each one of these three extremely cataclysmic events served to put into place the various political, economic and social constructs that would come to define the New World Order (NWO). While many are still waiting for the NWO to appear in living color on the world stage, they fail to realize that its cornerstone was actually put into place in 1913 with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act. With that single stroke of the pen were the American people turned into debt slaves, unknowingly beholden to the emerging fascist corporatocracy at every turn. Haven’t sticks (read fasces) always been used to keep slaves in line?!
Many readers may be aware of the Albert Pike letter which predicted not only the first two world wars, but also a third. Most of the same folks are waiting for a World War III, not realizing that it is happening all over the world, 24/7. What else would one call the state of the Middle East to include Iraq, Syria, Iran, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, if not a regional war zone. Then there is Afghanistan, Pakistan, Burma, and Thailand. How else would one label the state of affairs in the Ukraine, Venezuela, Argentina, Mexico and Brazil? We already saw what happened to Yugoslavia and Albania.
The only difference this time around is that the globalists will refrain from calling it World War 3. It’s a lot easier to conduct a world war without anyone knowing that it just may be coming to a neighborhood near them. This incremental approach has permitted them to put the right pieces on the chessboard exactly where they need to be before they execute their planned checkmates … just like they did in the Ukraine last week. In this way the new New World Order is advanced via a “new and improved” internet-based control matrix, with such stealth and deception, many of the populations are merrily going with the flow. This is what happens when London financiers conspire with Wall Street Brokers; Madison Avenue admen collude with Washington DC politicos; and Hollywood movie producers collaborate with the Military-Industrial Complex.
All Corporations Must Be Re-Chartered With Mandated Social Responsibility And The Contractual Promise Of Environmental Protection
Clearly, the business entity known as the Corporation must be overhauled if there is to be an emancipation from our modern form of debt slavery and smothering political (aka corporate-imposed) correctness. All publicly held corporations possess the same fatal flaws that can be exploited at any time by those who have the power and knowhow. With the rapid evolution of derivative-based hedge funds and computer-driven investment brokerage, corporate raiders, venture capitalists, private equity fund managers, and market speculators of every sort and kind can take quick and substantial advantage of any corporation under the sun.
For this reason alone, the entire investment marketplace (stocks and bonds, currencies and commodities, real estate and derivatives) has been transformed into a gambling casino. Not only have all professional sports fallen prey to this post-modern runaway addiction, the entire corporate culture has been taken over by it. Speculation is really just investment speak for gambling.
Especially when the basic commodities of life are under threat from Global Climate Change and other formidable pressures (like population explosion), is the temptation to bet on the ups and downs intensified. Because the folks who have the capital to play this global gambling casino have much to gain very quickly, they rarely miss the opportunity. Unfortunately, many of the same institutional players possess the power, influence and money to manipulate both events and circumstances for their unconscionable financial gain.
Because the rich corporate titans are feted annually due to their personal wealth, increased holdings and general business success, their worship is on par with that of rich and famous athletes, actors and singers. The more the 1% gain at the expense of the 99%, the more adulation they receive in mainstream media. It matters not that much of this wealth is often acquired by obvious insider trading, transparent market manipulation and many other more stealthy means of wealth accumulation.
At the end of the day (life cycle of predatory capitalism) it will be these same big time speculators who fleece each other because there will be no one else to fleece. This is where the world is at this very moment, as the snake of predatory capitalism eats itself everywhere one looks. Each and every war, conflict and skirmish across the planet represents this inevitable dynamic of the more self-destructive side of corrupt, corporate capitalism.
Very Instructive MBA Lesson, Since They Run The Corporations
There are three answers that one can give in virtually any MBA program in America these days and get a gold star from the professor. Mind you, it makes no difference what the course is, or the question asked in class. These following answers will always be right! As follows:
I. Maximize shareholders’ wealth
II. Increase stockholders’ profits
III. Optimize stakeholders’ position
Of course, each of these sacrosanct corporate goals can be accomplished in various ways; one of the quickest is by regular and robust dividend pay out. Capital appreciation is another which occurs with each increase in the stock price. These are just two pillars of corporate success which hold up the temple of our post-modern form of predatory capitalism. As long as this temple stands, corrupt, crony, corporate capitalism will continue to lay waste the land … the water … and the seas … all seven of them.
Just why is that? Because virtually every corporate charter ever written indicates that the corporation answers to the stockholders; they’re the owners. The needs and demands of the stockholders trump every thing else in the management of the corporate enterprise. Their enrichment takes precedence over the environment, over the welfare of the employees, over the safety or quality of the product and/or service, over basic social responsibility within the local community.
If the corporate legal team can wiggle its way out of a legitimate lawsuit brought against the company, it will rarely if ever admit to guilt, and will often blame the plaintiff. Because the costs of litigation can be significantly less than the punitive damages associated with a serious and meritorious legal claim, the legal department will almost always opt for the least costly alternative, even when they know they are flat out guilty of illegal and harmful conduct. In other words, although a corporation now enjoys various privileges of personhood, it has yet to acquire a conscience.
In view of the current Second Great Depression in which the world now finds itself, it can be said that the planet stands at the brink of a new dawn. That new dawn is unlike any the world has experienced before, as it is unique and unprecedented within the current epoch of time.
Because the current race of humanity exists as perhaps the largest and most diverse global population in recorded history, there continues to be much which serves to divide and separate us … as individuals and as families, as neighborhoods and villages, cities and states, nations and continents. Truly, the community of nations is as plagued as ever by wars, revolutions and conflicts.
As the world population exceeds the 7 billion mark by more people each and every day, the differences of the past must be reconciled. Religious, racial, cultural, language, custom, gender, and sexual differences will always be there, no matter where one resides on the planet. Because of the growing scarcity of natural resources, however, conflicts in the socio-economic realm are inevitable. Therefore, economic and financial gaps between us will only widen. Conflict and wars, quarrel and competition are inevitable where it concerns access to clean water, adequate food and shelter, and sufficient clothing.
This omnipresent fact of life can only be addressed in a meaningful way by eliminating the divisive perception of the many differences which are in reality meaningless. As long as these differences persist in alienating us from each other, the “800 pound gorilla” will always get its way. Divide and conquer and/or divide and rule will always be easy for the globalists to execute. If, however, the overwhelming influence of the gorilla of corporate fascism is dealt with in a bold, decisive and purposeful way, things can change for the better.
It’s always the people’s choice. Will they choose to live in fear. Or, will they choose to live with faith and courage. At the end of the day, as well at the end of this epoch, it will always be the collective will of the people that decides the future of humanity. Whereas the very fate of the planet now hangs in the balance, perhaps there will be a critical mass of souls compelled to demand real change — change that is positive, durable and effectuated in the best interest of all.

Isn’t it time to take back OUR couch?!
There is NO greater threat to human existence than the impunity with which the Government-Corprate Complex currently operates across the planet. It’s primary instrument of operation is the CORPORATION. Now that personhood has been conferred upon them, rogue corporations can be used to run roughshod over the Earth like never before. The status quo in this particular regard was already completely unacceptable; now we will see Gorilla, Inc. on steroids.
Because of the inherent structural defects and profound systemic flaws within the corporate entity, the CORPORATION issue must be addressed at the highest level of global governance. Such a global transformation of the corporate model will only take place when the people of the world demand it. Otherwise, our civilization will only continue to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic.
Here’s what one writer has observed and predicted.
“Another announcement will be made, in the not too distant future, about the business entity commonly known as the CORPORATION – the main huckster of this ‘brand’ of faux democracy. Surely, if the devil were to ever choose the perfect form in which to enter in order to carry out his nefarious designs, Inc. is it. Is there any other entity on earth – person or party, organization or association, government or institution, jurisdiction or bureaucracy, club or group, fraternity or sorority, etc. that can function with such impunity, as it hides behind the shield of LIMITED LIABILITY. Those two words have given complete cover for the flagrant and wanton destruction of planet Earth.
You name it – oil slicked coastlines, radiation saturated fishing grounds, razed rainforests, beaches strewn with dead dolphins and whales, GMO-laced food supply, fluoride-laced water supply, chemtrail chemicals forever falling from the sky. Not to mention the complete and utter erosion of human, civil and national rights, wherever INC decides to set up shop.”

Burzynski, the Movie is the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food and Drug Administration in American history.
In the 1970s, Dr. Burzynski made a remarkable discovery that threatened to change the face of cancer treatment forever. His non-toxic, gene-targeted cancer medicine could have helped save millions of lives over the last two decades had his discovery not been criminally suppressed by the US government, as his therapy, called "antineoplastons," have been shown to effectively help cure some of the most "incurable" forms of terminal cancer.
This documentary takes you through the treacherous 14-year journey Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to finally obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of antineoplastons.
His story is yet another testament that fact can be far stranger than fiction, as the film exposes the powerful, unscrupulous forces that work to maintain the status quo of the medical and pharmaceutical industry at any cost-including the lives of millions of people.
Dr. Burzynski's Story Is a Jaw-Dropper
Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski was born in the early 1940s in Poland, and was trained as both a biochemist and a physician. He's spent the last 35 years developing and successfully treating cancer patients suffering with some of the most lethal forms of cancer at his clinic in Houston, Texas.
I recently interviewed Dr. Burzynski about his cancer treatment—a gene-targeted approach using non-toxic peptides and amino acids, known as antineoplastons. Here, I will follow up with a review of his recently released documentary, Burzynski, The Movie.1
It's an absolute jaw-dropper…
For anyone who has ever been affected by cancer, either directly or indirectly, the facts presented in this film will hit you like a rude slap in the face.
You will learn that not only did the US Federal government spend 14 years actively suppressing a cancer treatment that had a FAR greater success rate than any other treatment available, but they also spent well over $60 million of US taxpayer dollars trying to put the inventor of the treatment in jail in order to steal his patents and either suppress or cash in on his discovery.
This film is an absolute MUST-SEE, as the summary I'm about to present below simply cannot do it justice. It's available for purchase at BurzynkiMovie.com, where you can view the first half-hour for free. The site also contains a large number of video clips,2 as well as a full transcript of the entire film,3 along with links to all the documentation presented.
What's so Special About Dr. Burzynski's Treatment?
The story begins back in the early 1970s when Dr. Burzynski discovered that people with cancer lacked a certain peptide, while those who were cancer-free had a plentiful supply of it.
This finding eventually led him to create a medical treatment referred to as antineoplastons. The drug contains a mixture of peptides and derivatives of amino acids. These were known to act as molecular switches, but as genome research blossomed and science progressed, Dr. Burzynski discovered they also work as genetic switches, and that is why antineoplastons work so well.
They're actually able to turn on cancer suppressing genes, while simultaneously turning oncogenes (cancer genes) off.
As explained in the film:4
"Our bodies contain two categories of genes that allow cancer to flourish: oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. When someone has cancer, they have a higher level of oncogenes switched on, with a higher-level tumor suppressor genes switched off.
The goal is to tell the body to both switch back on the tumor suppressor genes, and turn off as many oncogenes as possible."
While other gene targeting cancer drugs now exist, they're only capable of targeting a small number of specific cancer genes. Antineoplastons, on the other hand, target a wide spectrum of cancer genes—about 100 of them at once. In a very simplistic way, antineoplastons are to cancer what a broad-spectrum antibiotic is to infectious disease.
Success Rates of Chemo and Radiation versus Antineoplastons
The film features several remarkable case stories of people who were successfully cured of cancer, but it's when the clinical trial data of conventional therapies versus antineoplastons are stacked against each other that the benefits of antineoplastons become really obvious:
Radiation or Chemotherapy Only
5 of 54 patients (9 percent)
5 of 20 (25 percent)
were cancer-free at the end of treatment
were cancer-free at the end of treatment
Toxic side effects
No toxic side effects
Tackling Childhood Brain Tumors
Dr. Burzynski was so confident in his antineoplastons that he even accepted the most difficult and "hopeless" cases, such as childhood brain tumors. Conventional medicine has little or nothing to offer in these cases, and the side effects can be as horrific as the disease itself, if not more. Furthermore, the best outcome conventional treatment can offer is to slow down the growth of the tumor.
Using antineoplastons, however, Dr. Burzynski has been able to successfully cure many of these otherwise hopeless cases, such as Jessica Ressel.5
She was 11 years old when she was diagnosed with brainstem glioma—an incurable brain tumor. After learning that she would die no matter what toxic drugs and radiation treatments she underwent, the family decided to not put her through it. When they found Dr. Burzynski, they literally had nothing to lose…
Twelve months later—after having initially been told she had but a few months to live, and given no chance of survival at all—MRIs confirmed she was cancer-free. Her brain tumor was completely resolved. Today, Jessica is a healthy 24-year old woman, pregnant with her second child
When comparing FDA-supervised studies of treatments for lethal childhood brainstem gliomas, antineoplastons again comes out as a clear winner:
1 of 107 patients (0.9 percent)
11 of 40 patients (27.5 percent)
were cancer-free at the end of treatment
were cancer-free at the end of treatment
0 of 107 patients (0 percent)
11 of 40 patients (27.5 percent)
survived past five years
survived past five years
Even more interesting, while some of Dr. Burzynski's patients did eventually die after the five-year mark, most who did NOT undergo chemotherapy prior to getting antineoplastons have gone on to live normal, healthy lives—yet another indication that in many cases, the conventional treatments are more lethal than the disease itself
Side Effects of Chemotherapy Drugs
Here's just a sampling of the side effects of three conventional chemotherapy drugs:
· Doxorubicin (nickname: Red Death) – leukemia, heart failure, infertility, mouth sores
· Etoposide – leukemia, nerve damage, inability to fight infections
· Cisplatin – kidney damage, hearing damage, nerve damage, infertility
Another chemo drug, Mitotane, which is derived from DDT, is also used for pediatric patients even though no studies have ever been performed to ascertain its safety or effectiveness in children.
Dr. Burzynski's Troubles Begins…
The legal battle Dr. Burzynski found himself embroiled in over his invention is convoluted to say the least. There are many bizarre twists and turns, and I strongly urge you to watch the documentary to fully appreciate what happened.
Dr. Burzynski had tried to get the FDA to review and approve antineoplastons since 1977, to no avail. To make sure he would not get into trouble for using the experimental therapy in his practice, his legal team reviewed federal and Texas state laws, confirming that he was acting within the laws and could use antineoplastons in his own practice "to meet the immediate needs of patients," since he was a licensed physician, particularly if no other alternatives were available to the patient. He could not engage in interstate commerce, however, so he had to restrict the use of the drug to his home state of Texas.
But word spread, and patients started traveling to his office from out of state.
Suddenly, in 1984, he found out that agents from the Texas board of medical examiners were traveling to patients across the country trying to convince them to file charges against him.
What followed next truly challenges the rational mind.
Texas Board of Medical Examiners Try to Strip Away His Medical License
In 1988, despite not breaking any laws, and having produced more evidence than was required to show that his treatment was effective and that no harm was coming to his patients from it, the Texas medical board charged him with breaking a law that didn't exist, claiming it was grounds for revoking his medical license.
They didn't have a case, but kept the charges going by continuing to file slightly amended complaints, until finally, in 1993, the case went to trial. By then, 60 of Dr. Burzynski's patients had filed a petition for the medical board to stop harassing their doctor—a petition that the board successfully eliminated from the trial by filing a motion to strike it from the record.
Testifying on Dr. Burzynski's behalf, however, was a leading expert from none other than the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Dr. Nicholas Patronas, MD, a board certified radiologist since 1973, and the founder and chief of Neurology at the NCI. Even he recognized the absurdity of the board's case, and put his own career on the line to testify.
The judge ruled in Dr. Burzynski's favor, confirming that no laws had been broken.
You'd think that would be the end of it. But not so in this case. Instead of accepting defeat, the Texas medical board filed charges against Dr. Burzynski with the Texas Supreme Court.
The Method Behind the FDA's Madness
It eventually came to light that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had pressured the Texas medical board to revoke Dr. Burzynski's medical license—despite the fact that no laws were broken, and his treatment was proven safe and effective.
It's been stated many times that a crime can be solved simply by following the money, and this case is no exception. The FDA and the pharmaceutical industry had realized that if Dr. Burzynski's discovery—which he owned the patent for—received a fair review, chemotherapy and radiation would rapidly dwindle into obscurity, effectively crippling the industry. Not only that, but if antineoplastons were approved, billions of dollars of cancer research funds would get funneled over to one single scientist who had exclusive patent rights…
Dr. Richard Crout, Director of the FDA Bureau of Drugs, once wrote in a 1982 newsletter:
"I never have and never will approve a new drug to an individual, but only to a large pharmaceutical firm with unlimited finances."
It became clear that ever since 1977, when Dr. Burzynski first tried to get antineoplastons approved, the FDA had begun scheming to eliminate the threat he and his discovery posed to the entire cancer industry…
The Harassment Continues Unabated
The FDA, under the direction of Commissioner Dr. David Kessler, called no fewer than FOUR different grand jury investigations into Dr. Burzynski's practice, despite the fact that none of the grand juries ever found him to be at fault, and no indictment ever came from any of the investigations.
But the FDA did not let up.
Finally, in 1995, just days after the final grand jury investigation, which also had found no fault, Dr. Burzynski was inexplicably indicted on charges of fraud, and 75 counts of violating federal law. If found guilty, he now faced 290 years in federal prison, and $18.5 million in fines.
A year later, in a bizarre twist brought about by congressional and public pressure, the FDA agreed to accept all of Dr. Burzynski's patients into a series of 72 FDA-supervised phase two clinical trials.
A 1996 article in The Washington Post noted:6
"The prosecution marks the first time the FDA has tried to jail a scientist for using a drug on which he is conducting FDA authorized clinical trials."
Federal Government Spent $60 Million Trying to Bury Dr. Burzynski
This second trial cost American taxpayers a whopping $60 million just in legal fees alone—that's not counting the cost of continually harassing him (including several raids on his office) and his patients over the preceding 11 years. Dr. Burzynski spent $2.2 million on his own defense, $700,000 of which was raised by Dr. Julian Whitaker through requests for donations in his newsletter Health & Healing.
On March 4, 1997, the judge declared it a mistrial, due to a deadlocked jury. However, after stating the government had not presented sufficient evidence in its case, he ordered that Dr. Burzynski be acquitted of 42 of the 75 counts.7
But the FDA wasn't done yet. They took him to court AGAIN!
Third Time's the Charm…
At this point, many were becoming increasingly aware that something very bizarre and unusual was going on. Jurors from the first trial even joined patients in protests outside the courthouse. One clear-headed juror from the previous trial stated:
"Please don't waste my money abusing the system to make sure that you maintain your power!"
On May 28, 1997, after three hours of deliberation, the jury came back with their final verdict: Not Guilty.8 By now you're probably thinking that this victory surely must mark the end of the wrongful harassment of Dr. Burzynski.
But no. It gets worse.
Secret Dealings Hide True Intents
While this ongoing drama unfolded over the course of more than a decade, something even more sinister was taking place behind the scenes, unbeknownst to Dr. Burzynski and his legal counsel.
In 1989, Dr. Burzynski had retained Dr. Dvorit Samid as a research consultant, and she did a lot of work with the antineoplaston ingredients. At the time, Dr. Samid worked at the Uniformed Services Medical School in Baltimore. She later transferred to the National Cancer Institute.
By 1990—while the Texas medical board kept filing one amended complaint after the other against Dr. Burzynski, in an effort to revoke his license—he had decided that the easiest way to keep the government from putting him out of business or in prison, was to partner with a pharmaceutical company. As luck would have it, he'd treated the sister-in-law of the Chairman and CEO of Élan Pharmaceuticals, and Élan eagerly drafted a letter of intent stating they would aggressively pursue the filing of the necessary protocols with the FDA for approval and marketing of antineoplastons.
Dr. Samid began working closely with Élan on the project. But once the financing, licensing agreements and royalties had been negotiated and agreed upon, Élan suddenly changed its tune, stating they had significant doubt as to whether the active substances could be patented, which would render an agreement meaningless.
As it turns out, Élan had instead partnered with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), where Dr. Samid got the position of section chief. They then co-sponsored laboratory research and clinical trials on just one of the antineoplastons' ingredients—an ingredient that Dr. Burzynski had NOT been able to patent due to the fact that it was already known. However, he had also already determined it to be very limited in terms of effectiveness on its own, over a decade ago.
Élan and the NCI spent tens of millions of dollars testing this single ingredient… Not surprisingly, it failed. Dr. Burzynski had already established that the ingredients must be used in combination in order to be effective. After realizing they could not duplicate the effectiveness of Dr. Burzynski's antineoplastons, the NCI finally agreed to conduct his clinical trials under the direction of Dr. Michael Friedman.
Sabotaging Trials—Par the Course for the National Cancer Institute
How do you sabotage a clinical trial?
It's actually easier than you might think. You'll have to watch the film to get all the details, but in summary, the trials were closed prior to completion, and were written off with the statement "no conclusion can be made about the effectiveness or toxicity of antineoplastons." But it was clear, based on the study data, that seven of the nine patients enrolled received NO antineoplastons whatsoever! The others received dosages that were far lower than recommended.
Adding insult to injury, in 1999, about a year after Dr. Burzynski had been acquitted a third and final time, the NCI published these invalid trials in the medical literature, citing antineoplastons as a complete failure. So sure, Dr. Burzynski was a free man; cleared of all charges and free to practice medicine, but now the National Cancer Institute had effectively undermined the credibility and commercial viability of his medical discovery…
What the film reveals next truly boggles the mind.
“After the National Cancer Institute intentionally violated all protocols of their own antineoplaston trials, and after all state and federal agencies had failed in their 14-year campaign to remove Burzynski from society-after all of the dust settled-a profound truth began to emerge.”
Theft and Patent Infringement—All in a Day's Work
In October 1991—while the Texas medical board kept filing amended complaints against him in an effort to revoke his license, due to pressure from the FDA—the National Cancer Institute (NCI) had conducted a site visit to Dr. Burzynski's clinic, and verified that "anti-tumor activity was documented by the use of antineoplastons."9
As it turns out, a mere 17 days after this visit, the United States of America, as represented by "The Department of Health and Human Services," filed a patent for antineoplastons AS2-1… one of the two antineoplastons Dr. Burzynski had already patented.
The inventor listed?
"Dr. Dvorit Samid," Dr. Burzynski's former research consultant. The patent states:
"The invention described herein may be manufactured, used and licensed by or for the government, for governmental purposes, without the payment to us of any royalties thereon."
Over the next four years, while the witch-hunt to put Dr. Burzynski behind bars was in full swing, the US Government filed 10 more patents for antineoplastons.
By the summer of 1995, around the time that Burzynski was indicted for fraud and 75 counts of violating federal law, Dr. Michael Friedman—who sabotaged the NCI antineoplastons trials—had left the NCI and become Deputy Commissioner of Operations for the FDA, working directly under FDA Commissioner Dr. David Kessler—the man responsible for dragging Dr. Burzynski in front of no less than four different grand juries a few years earlier.
In November of 1995, a month into Dr. Burzynski's trial, where he faced 290 years in prison, the US Patent office approved the first US Government patent for antineoplastons. Between 1995 and 2000, the US Patent office approved all 11 copycat patents on antineoplastons AS2-1…
Who Pays for Their Crimes?
By now your head is probably spinning, so let's recap.
Dr. Burzynski developed a cancer treatment that surpassed all other treatments on the market, and the FDA, the pharmaceutical industry, and the National Cancer Institute all knew it. They also knew he was the sole owner of the patents for this therapy, and these two facts combined, threatened the entire paradigm of the cancer industry.
The cancer paradigm is based on very expensive machines and toxic drugs. There's an enormous amount of money to be made in this paradigm, and Dr. Burzynski single-handedly threatened to overturn it.
So they tried to copy his invention using a single non-patented ingredient. It failed. The next step was to steal the whole thing right from under him. There was just one problem. They knew they couldn't use the stolen patents as long as Dr. Burzynski walked free and had the ability to defend his rights to them… So they concocted 75 fraudulent charges to tuck him away in jail for the rest of his life.
Fortunately for us, they failed in that too.
Dr. Whitaker sums it up nicely when he says:
"How can the US Patent office be corrupted to the point they issue patents for a medical treatment that's already been patented and issue them to someone who had nothing to do with their discovery or use? And how can the Patent office then assign these fraudulent patents to some of the most powerful institutions in the American government? And, imagine, all of this was done while these same agencies were spending millions of taxpayer dollars trying to put Dr. Burzynski in jail, so he could not fight the criminal theft of his discovery!"
As I said in the beginning, the facts of this case challenge the mind of any sane and rational person, but make no mistake about it: These things did happen, and Dr. Burzynski has all the documentation to back it up.
The US Government did harass and intimidate, and they did try to falsely imprison a brilliant scientist, simply because he'd discovered an effective cancer therapy, while simultaneously engaging in patent infringement.
Now, while this was an enormous personal hardship for Dr. Burzynski, the US Government also, through their enormous greed, in a very direct way prevented millions of cancer patients to receive a non-toxic therapy that could have saved their life. Remember, Dr. Burzynski has been trying to get antineoplastons reviewed and approved since 1977, to no avail. It's absolutely heartbreaking to consider the cost of this criminal behavior in terms of human life, including young children.
The Deadly, But Highly Profitable, Cancer Paradigm
While the stolen patents are filled with useful information about the benefits and efficacy of antineoplastons, one statement in particular sums up the problem with the current cancer paradigm:
"Current approaches to combat cancer rely primarily on the use of chemicals and radiation, which are themselves carcinogenic and may promote recurrences and the development of metastatic disease."
Dr. Burzynski's therapy, as you may recall, is non-toxic, giving patients the option to at least not suffer more grievous harm from the treatment itself, in addition to a significantly greater chance of being cured.
I'm sure that whenever someone donates their hard-earned money or participates in a pink-ribbon walkathon, they believe they're doing a good thing. They believe they're helping fund vital cancer research that will hopefully, someday, find a cure for cancer. Little do they know that much of this money goes toward perpetuating the status quo of cancer treatment, namely highly toxic drugs and expensive machines—the same old paradigm centered around profit.
As of 2010, the National Cancer Institute's annual budget is $5.2 billion. Dr. Burzynski cannot get a single dime of it. All of his research into antineoplastons over the past 35 years has been self-funded.
Think about that for a moment. Not one dime has been funneled toward developing one of the most promising cancer therapies to emerge in the past three decades… Are you still convinced they have your best interest at heart, and are diligently working to "find a cure for cancer"?
If you're NOT convinced, I'd urge you to take a look at the story of alternative cancer physician Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, which has similarities to that of Dr. Burzynski. Gonzalez's treatments are so successful that conventional physicians felt the need to shut him down.

By Bradlee Dean
March 26, 2014
Over the past 14 years, in the course of doing more than 350 public high-school presentations across the country in 24 states, my ministry team and I have (without fail) fought on the behalf of a generation that is being subjected to everything and protected from nothing.
We have seen firsthand the effects of what the federal government has been doing on a daily basis through the illegalities of educational schemes it brings forth – in an attempt to implement a “game changer” on a defenseless population behind the backs of the American people.
(Read Article 10 of the Bill of Rights.)
1) No Child Left Behind, which should rightly be named “No Child Left Un-indoctrinated,” is nothing more than equalizing the playing field where all students become equal (communism), and is a program that shoots for the floor and not for the stars.
2) International Baccalaureate. International Baccalaureate is an educational scheme that was contrived and developed in Sweden in 1968.
Here is what International Baccalaureate teaches:
• Earth worship
• Socialized medicine
• World government
• Animal rights (animals seen as bothers and sisters)
• Redistribution of American wealth to other nations
• Contraception and “reproductive health” (legal abortions)
• Debt forgiveness to Third-World nations
• Adoption of the gay rights agenda
• Elimination of the right to bear arms
• Setting aside massive amounts of private land where no human presence is allowed
• Learning to become a Muslim
• Fasting for Ramadan
• Learning the five pillars of Islam
• Memorizing verses of the Quran
• Adopting a Muslim name
• Staging a jihad (war against non-Muslims)
3) Common Core. Common Core is a “one-size-fits-all” federal redesign of the entire U.S. education system and is developed entirely by a select few individuals; this grand redesign is being aggressively marketed by federal bureaucrats, private trade associations, global corporations, state governors, billionaire philanthropists and politicians in all political parties. No parent, teacher or citizen approval. No public debate. No legislation was passed or new federal funding authorized. Without the slightest amount of valid academic research to validate this, Common Core claims to have “rigorous” and “internationally benchmarked” standards that will “enhance college and career readiness for America’s children.”
No longer are we talking about a Third-World country, my friends. We are now talking about the United States of America.
At war with God
“The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty; and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments …
“We waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity, by means of the Bible; for this divine book, above all others favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws.” – Benjamin Rush
In complete contradiction to America’s foundational principles, John Dunphy, in his article, “A Religion for a New Age,” said:
“The Bible is not merely another book … it has and remains an incredibly dangerous book. … I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith. … These teachers must embody the same dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach. … The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new – the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism, resplendent in its promise of a world in which the never-realized Christian ideal of love thy neighbor will finally be achieved.”
How far are they willing to go? As far as you let them go!
America is either going to make this our greatest opportunity in proving our God by putting a stop to these crimes concerning our posterity, or she will be remembered as the greatest disgrace known in history who did not stand on the behalf of her young. There is no in between. Now is our time.
People are destroyed for a lack of knowledge! Know your history.

"No earthly government has jurisdiction over your God Given Rights."
Without GOD, you have nothing but Liars!
+ Governments Worldwide Adopting FATCA Style Legislation
If you are like most Americans, paying taxes is one of your pet peeves. The deadline to file your federal taxes is coming up, and this year Americans will spend more than 7 billion hours preparing their taxes and will hand over more than four trillion dollars to federal, state and local governments. Americans will fork over nearly 30 percent of what they earn to pay their income taxes, but that is only a small part of the story.
As you will see below, there are dozens of other taxes that Americans pay every year. Of course not everyone pays all of these taxes, but without a doubt we are all being taxed into oblivion. It is like death by a thousand paper cuts. Our politicians have become extremely creative in finding ways to extract money from all of us, and most Americans don't even realize what is being done to them. By the time it is all said and done, a significant portion of the population ends up paying more than half of what they earn to the government. That is fundamentally wrong, but nothing will be done about it until people start demanding change.
The following is a list of 97 taxes Americans pay every year…
#1 Air Transportation Taxes (just look at how much you were charged the last time you flew)
#2 Biodiesel Fuel Taxes
#3 Building Permit Taxes
#4 Business Registration Fees
#5 Capital Gains Taxes
#6 Cigarette Taxes
#7 Court Fines (indirect taxes)
#8 Disposal Fees
#9 Dog License Taxes
#10 Drivers License Fees (another form of taxation)
#11 Employer Health Insurance Mandate Tax
#12 Employer Medicare Taxes
#13 Employer Social Security Taxes
#14 Environmental Fees
#15 Estate Taxes
#16 Excise Taxes On Comprehensive Health Insurance Plans
#17 Federal Corporate Taxes
#18 Federal Income Taxes
#19 Federal Unemployment Taxes
#20 Fishing License Taxes
#21 Flush Taxes (yes, this actually exists in some areas)
#22 Food And Beverage License Fees
#23 Franchise Business Taxes
#24 Garbage Taxes
#25 Gasoline Taxes
#26 Gift Taxes
#27 Gun Ownership Permits

Yet despite all of this oppressive taxation, our local governments, our state governments and our federal government are all absolutely drowning in debt.
When the federal income tax was originally introduced a little more than 100 years ago, most Americans were taxed at a rate of only 1 percent.
But once they get their feet in the door, the social planners always want more.
Since that time, tax rates have gone much higher and the tax code has exploded in size.
Why do we have to have the most convoluted tax system in the history of the planet?
Why can't things be simpler?
In a previous article entitled "24 Outrageous Facts About Taxes In The United States That Will Blow Your Mind", I listed a number of reasons why our federal income tax system has become a complete and utter abomination that is entirely out of control…
1 – The U.S. tax code is now 3.8 million words long. If you took all of William Shakespeare's works and collected them together, the entire collection would only be about 900,000 words long.
2 – According to the National Taxpayers Union, U.S. taxpayers spend more than 7.6 billion hours complying with federal tax requirements. Imagine what our society would look like if all that time was spent on more economically profitable activities.
3 – 75 years ago, the instructions for Form 1040 were two pages long. Today, they are 189 pages long.
4 – There have been 4,428 changes to the tax code over the last decade. It is incredibly costly to change tax software, tax manuals and tax instruction booklets for all of those changes.
5 – According to the National Taxpayers Union, the IRS currently has 1,999 different publications, forms, and instruction sheets that you can download from the IRS website.
6 – Our tax system has become so complicated that it is almost impossible to file your taxes correctly. For example, back in 1998 Money Magazine had 46 different tax professionals complete a tax return for a hypothetical household. All 46 of them came up with a different result.
7 – In 2009, PC World had five of the most popular tax preparation software websites prepare a tax return for a hypothetical household. All five of them came up with a different result.
8 – The IRS spends $2.45 for every $100 that it collects in taxes.
9 – According to The Tax Foundation, the average American has to work until April 17th just to pay federal, state, and local taxes. Back in 1900, "Tax Freedom Day" came on January 22nd.
10 – When the U.S. government first implemented a personal income tax back in 1913, the vast majority of the population paid a rate of just 1 percent, and the highest marginal tax rate was just 7 percent.
If it was up to me, I would abolish the income tax and shut the IRS down.
But neither major political party in the United States is even willing to consider such a thing.
So the monstrous system that we have created will continue to get even bigger and even more complicated.
We are literally being taxed into oblivion, and most Americans don't even seem to care.

Governments Worldwide Adopting FATCA Style Legislation
It seems the US has created a new model for the world of draconian taxes and penalties. New powers at HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in Britain allow the body to "raid the bank accounts" of anyone who owes more than £1,000 in tax or tax credits. Under the new system, HMRC would have the power to seize money from bank accounts after they contacted the debtor several times.
The tax authority will not be able to empty these individuals' accounts, as they will have to leave a minimum of £5,000 in the account.
"This brings the UK in line with many other tax authorities which already have the power to recover debts directly from an individual's account, such as France and the US," the Budget documents explain.
So, HMRC is seeking the green light to raid UK bank accounts, potentially depriving people of any means to live. The HMRC does not have a stellar service record, and many people in Britain worry about abuse of power and incompetence from the government agency.
The changes are written down in the most recent budget package for the British government, in which a paragraph states “The Government will modernize and strengthen [the tax agency’s] debt collection powers to recover financial assets from the bank accounts of debtors who owe over £1,000 of tax.”
There is no reason to keep your savings in UK banks. Or in Russia for that matter.
Russia’s Ministry of Finance (Minfin) published last week draft amendments to the nation's Tax Code relating to the taxation of foreign companies controlled by tax residents of Russia. It is basically the Russian version of FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) – an all-encompassing tax regime aiming to bring Revenue to the Russian government via legal corporate and investment entities outside of Russia. They even have a name for this new regime: "de-off-shoring."
China has also pledged to make international efforts to fight "tax base erosion and profit shifting" by moving funds to low-tax jurisdictions. This is all part of the G20's pledge to combat the global practice of shifting funds to low-tax jurisdictions to evade taxes.
Despite the quickly changing tides, we still believe the US will see the brunt of the draconian taxation measures as the US is the most-indebted nation with multiple wars on different fronts and a leviathan government capable of snooping on anyone worldwide and with the ability to coerce other nations to hand over American assets. That's why we've organized the TDV Wealth Management Crisis Conference II.
Clearly, it doesn't matter where you are in the world – governments, probably yours, are thinking about or already drafting legislation to tax income based on nationality and not on location.
Our upcoming TDV Wealth Management Crisis Conference in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico from April 30th to May 4th (with an early bird special price if you book by April 2nd) will not only impart on attendees all the risks, but also give you the resources to act now, in a world increasingly bent on taxation.
The fact of the matter it is growing daily more difficult to keep up with what you owe on your taxes. This, for the most part, doesn't matter where you live in the world. Governments govern by consensus, not by the people, but of each other. As I wrote earlier the G20 has pledged to crackdown on individuals and corporations from off shoring themselves in order to save their money from being gobbled up by the taxman.
We see this most dramatically in the US, where in less than 100 days FATCA will be the law of the land. I predict thousands of people will be caught in the US dragnet known as FATCA, and many will be caught out of mere confusion regarding the law. But, one thing is for sure, the press arm has made it clear: evading taxes is bad. That means that those people who make honest mistakes won't have very much recourse to a sympathetic peer-group. Instead, they will be seen as "dirty capitalists" who don't contribute to "the greater good" by those blinded by the two-party system of extortion and violence.
But it isn't too late to understand the law, and in particular the way the law is on your side. Believe it or not there are still great opportunities for you to organize your life in order get the most out of your income. And what's more, all of these strategies are legal. That's right – legal ways for you to save what is rightfully yours so that it can be passed on to future generations.
I do urge you to act quickly, however. Once you have internationalized and protected your financial affairs it will be nearly impossible for governments to seize those assets. But, it is becoming very clear that governments worldwide will be attempting to clamp down on their own tax slaves by any means possible. The sooner you structure yourself, fully legally, internationally the better because it will not get any easier from here.

Ok, most of us with more than two inches between our ears know, this Nation started from our resistance to tyranny. What most do not know is, we have never been really free, as we have been led to believe. Because Great Britain’s King was the owner of America and all of its natural resources, and had corporate investors to satisfy, he could not just go belly up on them, so he decided to fake a surrender to stop the cost of the war, and keep a part of the resources to satisfy his investors, his own greed, and good name. The Constitution is a contract between the framers and the King, and the party that negotiated on our behalf were traitors. Since most of you will refuse to believe that, let’s put in behind us for the moment, and concentrate on where we are today.
The International Investment Banking Cartel grew from the Rothschild’s business ventures to various other Bankers he helped to grow rich, and they have been working through various elites in business and government to bleed the Nation dry and gain absolute control of our government; then they expanded to all of the planets other governments with the Central Banking system, as their means of gaining control of their governments.
Today, the are the real rulers of planet Earth, along with the Catholic Church, who the King had ceded England to, to save his soul.
Again, I doubt if many readers will believe this either but the long and short of all this tyranny is we are now indebted to a group of Bankers and others who are demanding through various means of deceit to be given acknowledged control of all Nations, called The New World Order.
They have used so many different methods of coercing Industry, Wall Street, Our Governments both Federal and State, that few people are really aware of the extent of their control, or who owns what.
Here is a letter from Jefferson’s Voice to assist your understanding.
One reason I am very saddened of late is that I see what is left of the resistance to NWO mendacity is allowing itself to be infiltrated, deceived, and fractured with this BS on Russia (and China, and BRICS). The day before yesterday I was reading where Russia is moving forward in partnership with the US and Europe on implementing smart grid! (Picture the diagram in Patrick Wood's presentation where the globalists want smart grid literally connected around the globe). Russia is adopting Agenda 21, the Trilateralist (and Zionists) spread their tentacles into Russia after its economy collapsed, and Putin supports NWO regionalization. Then there is Antony Sutton's research proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that American financiers and industrialists (and international bankers) financially and logistically supported the rise of the USSR and Hitler. So how can we possibly think that Russia has not already been captured and is now a pawn?
Does this make sense to you? I don't mean to put you on the spot, I am merely hoping that my points demonstrate a clear pattern and then there is the MOTIVE as to why the global elite would continue to pit country against country for profit and control.
Sadly, we must acknowledge that Chussodovsky (Global Research) is like Tarpley, he is a resolute socialist, and as such will not "go all the way" to condemn world wide socialism. These elite intellectuals believe that global socialism is a good thing and they blindly think by exposing the corruption they can get the right people to be rulers.
They are statists and as such have a large blind spot that you and I do not have. I think the best educational tools for now are the Antony Sutton videos presented with introductions. Talk to you again soon, dear friend. Please watch these videos when you have time. Thanks.
Are you getting the big picture yet folks? Are you beginning to understand what we are up against, and our own complicity in this mess? That’s right folks, we are just as responsible as the Bankers. We should have known just by instinct alone that something was fishy, when it took so little to convince us to sacrifice our children in all the wars posted above. So what, if we were enticed to concentrate on having fun and more things than we needed. Why were we so easily fooled into supporting the death of so many thousands of our own families? Even today, after all these un-necessary tragedies, we will send our children to war at the drop of a hat. Maybe more of us older folks should get off our ass and do some reading, instead of listening to the talking heads on the evening news, which is owned and controlled by the elites. Does it not embarrass you to see how easy it has been for them to get us to cut our own throats, not to mention our souls? Sane Nations do not murder people unless they are under attack, or have proof its coming. We have a debt alright, but it’s not to the damn Bankers, it’s to the men and women who have died in vain. You would do well to go here and read about one of the few real heroes’, America has produced; General Smedley Butler. War Is A Racket , Who Pays The Bills? , How To Smash This Racket! , To Hell With War! Let’s be really honest again, and stop the New World Order, make your demands known by all who represent you. CLEAN HOUSE DOWN TO THE LAST MOUSE. WE NEED LEADERS WHO CANNOT, AND WILL NOT BE COERCERED! GET US OUT OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER!

Eight-time presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche Jr., who wrote an open letter to Congress calling for impeachment of
President Barack Obama a few days ago, in interview with the Voice of Russia shared his opinion on US foreign politics,
the current situation in Ukraine and the NSA surveillance program’s violation of the constitution.
“As the following attests, during his time in office President Obama has lied repeatedly to the American people and the Congress and has subverted the US Constitution on behalf of foreign interests—the British/Saudi axis—and its allies. In his recent adventure in Ukraine, he is about to lead the United States into World War III.” So reads a letter by Lyndon LaRouche Jr., published in the Washington Times a few days ago.
In an interview with the Voice of Russia, LaRouche once again insisted the urgency of impeaching Obama in order to save mankind:
“Obama’s presidency as well as the Bush–Cheney presidency has been a force of pure evil not only inside US but also for Europe and elsewhere around the world. We have had great difficulty in trying to secure removal of this presidency because it is essentially a protégé of the British Empire. For example Wall Street is the British imperial extension into the US, so it is really a problem. I’m involved in working with nations who asked me to work with them in order to try to get some kind of solution because we are going towards a very dangerous trade in human existence, the world economy is in terrible mess, the danger for humanity is enormous and we have to put this system back on the right course.”
The 92 year old political veteran also shared his point of view on the current situation in Ukraine and its current government. He stressed that the most important thing to do now is to get rid of the Nazis who are in control of the country’s government.
“It was a bluff by the UK and by certain forces like the Obama government in the US. They tried to see if they could bluff President Putin to obey their pressing demands. And they were the ones who organized the Nazi element in Ukraine to be a government. This was done by the Cheney circles inside the US who had been the Vice President of the US. This was a bluff. Alternative was which the British acceptor tried to avoid, they said: ’”We’d get Russia to collapse and give us the confessions we demand. Then we will be able to take on Asia piecemeal, because once Russia is crashed then Asia becomes highly vulnerable too.” President Putin has done a very good job for his part in resisting every temptation to make big mistakes.”
LaRouch also spoke about Edward Snowden and the NSA surveillance program’s violation of the constitution.
“Snowden was and remains a patriot of the US but his was under a fascist-like dictatorship in the section of government that he served and he was smart enough to know that he would be assassinated if he remained in the US. So then he took measures, and had hosting by President Putin. Snowden is essentially a good person. These people in the US government are in stark violation of the constitution of the US. They are criminals and we know these people must be removed from power if we want to save the peace of the planet.”
It is apparent to me that the best minds in our world are chasing their tail, all because they are afraid to support a project that will scare the hell out of millions of uninformed citizens. Until we as a majority are all equally informed and come to the obvious conclusion that the people at the top of this atrocity must be eliminated and their assets fairly distributed to the various governments world wide, and only then, will there even be a possibility of peace. The International Investment Banking Cartel must be completely eliminated, right down to their family and supporters. They are a cancer to society and will continue to spread worldwide until freedom is no longer remembered. One does not have to be super intelligent to protect their own life. There is no end to how surreptitious these scumbags can be, and as an example, he is playing the limited hangout of no international cabal, and he is pumping the big psychological operation that Russia is defending itself from the US bully when we know that the Russian elite have already sold out to the apex globalists. This is theater and that must be known or else when the next contraction comes more people will not wake up to question globalism or ever understand Hegelian dialectics. Russia is now on board with agenda 21, as are virtually all nations now. Putin is also supporting the creation of regional governments (New World Order). Here are some excerpts from Wiki on LaRouche: "LaRouche began writing in 1973 about the use of certain psychological techniques on recruits. In an article called "Beyond Psychoanalysis", he wrote that a worker's persona had to be stripped away to arrive at a state he called "little me," from which it would be possible to "rebuild their personalities around a new socialist identity," according to The Washington Post. The New York Times wrote that the first such session—which LaRouche called "ego-stripping"—involved a German member, Konstantin George, in the summer of 1973; LaRouche said that during the session he discovered that a plot to assassinate him had been implanted in George's mind." [Classic Psychopath!] "[A 1979 New York Times article] alleged that [LaRouche’s Labor Party] members had taken courses in how to use knives and rifles; that a farm in upstate New York had been used for guerrilla training; and that several members had undergone a six-day anti-terrorist training course run by Mitchell WerBell III, an arms dealer and former member of the Office of Strategic Services, who said he had ties to the CIA. Journalists and publications the party regarded as unfriendly were harassed, and it published a list of potential assassins it saw as a threat. LaRouche expected members to devote themselves entirely to the party, and place their savings and possessions at its disposal, as well as take out loans on its behalf. Party officials would decide who each member should live with, and if someone left the movement, his remaining partner was expected to live separately from him. LaRouche would question spouses about their partner's sexual habits, the Times said, and in one case reportedly ordered a member to stop having sex with his wife because it was making him "politically impotent." Triple check everything you learn.

With all the spin, fallacies, half-truths, and a few facts thrown in regarding the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, readers probably have not heard some of the more egregious stories making the rounds.
Before I’m castigated for not liking ObamaCare, let me say that back in the 1980s and ‘90s I was working for affordable and effective healthcare for everyone in the USA, long before Mr. Obama came on the political scene. Anyone with half a brain understood, even back then, that we needed healthcare reform, but not healthcare destruction!
The number one issue I have with ObamaCare is how it was passed into law. I contend it was passed under duress, i.e., Nancy Pelosi’s “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” That’s downright ILLEGAL! Why did Congress fall for such arm twisting, ploy, and deceit? When parties don’t know the full facts, or information is kept from them during negotiations, according to contract law that contract is not valid and is non-negotiable. On that fact alone, the U.S. Supreme Court should have ‘displayed’ certain parts of the male anatomy to reject ObamaCare when it came up before it, instead of reclassifying it as a “tax.” SCOTUS’s ruling is something that many legal minds question. Congress initiates, passes/enacts, and modifies legislation.
The second issue I have with ObamaCare is how it’s being manipulated by the White House when only Congress should be initiating changes to that unfortunate law. Apparently, there is total disregard for that branch of government by the sitting POTUS. Why is Obama so at odds with Congress? Wasn’t he the one who ran on a platform that his administration would be the most transparent administration, all while having Washington work better?
To elucidate on that point, the Cato Institute produced the paper, “The Promise That Keeps on Breaking.”
The Hill blog posted this ominous report March 19th, “Issa steers Oversight back to ObamaCare” along with sending a five-page letter regarding Healthcare.gov security concerns.
Congress needs to get down to the bottom of the ObamaCare fiasco. However, if no one wants to ‘talk’ or surrender requested information, maybe waterboarding tactics ought to be used; what do you think? I’m one who does not believe in violence, but enough is enough already with this ObamaCare ‘racketeering’ BS. After all, the CIA used waterboarding on others to get information, maybe it will work to get ObamaCare information that’s needed in order to get on with no longer disenfranchising previously insured individuals from their insurance plans or doctors—between five and six million to date.
Furthermore, what kind of health insurance program is ObamaCare when only about five million supposedly have signed on—we don’t know how many have paid premiums to date—whereas 44 million un-insureds were the targets to get health insurance? What kind of cockamamie health insurance game plan is that? But, that’s not all. Listen up!
The third issue with ObamaCare I have is that insurance premiums are going to SOAR as soon as the mid-term elections in November are in the history books. According to The Hill blog,
Jon Gruber, who also helped design the Affordable Care Act, said, “The bottom line is that we just don’t know. Premiums were rising 7 to 10 percent a year before the law. So the question is whether we will see a continuation of that sort of single digit increase, as Sebelius said, or whether it will be larger.” [….]
Political operatives will be watching premium increases this summer, most notably in states where there are contested Senate races.
In Iowa, which hosts the first presidential caucus in the nation and has a competitive Senate race this year, rates are expected to rise 100 percent on the exchange and by double digits on the larger, employer-based market, according to a recent article in the Business Record.  [CJF emphasis added]
There’s an aphorism that goes like this: “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it’s gotta be a duck.” Interpolating that to ObamaCare, if it looks like a scam, operates like a scam, and advertises like a scam, it’s gotta be a scam! Why can’t Democrats who voted for it and citizens demand ObamaCare be repealed?
There are numerous—too many to mention—other problems with ObamaCare. However, just to mention one, in particular, is how senior citizens are being treated under ACA dictates , which should be trashed immediately. Actually, and in my opinion, ObamaCare provides absolute disrespect for the elderly sick and their quality of life. Seniors deserve better than that! They paid the freight on this country all their working lives.
The Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethicspublished online “Obamacare Routes to Rationing” wherein these points are discussed:
1. How Obamacare’s “Excess Benefits” Tax Will Prevent Health Insurance from Keeping Up with Medical Inflation
2. How Insurance Exchanges Are Limiting Your Ability to Use Your Own Money to Save Your Family Members’ Lives
3. Medicare: How Obamacare Limits Senior Citizens’ Ability to Use Your Own Money to Save Your Own Lives
4. How Obamacare Will Limit What Health Care Providers Can Do to Save the Lives of Your Family Members 
As Judge Andrew Napolitano points out, the U.S. government mismanages the U.S. Post Office, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid – and those programs are BROKE! Why give the feds something else to muck up, especially healthcare in the USA, which was one of the best—if not the best—in the world until Mr. Obama with his fancy mouth work (lies) came on the scene.
But the piece-de-resistance regarding Obama-style health initiatives, according to The Washington Times, is this:
Michelle Obama may have pushed the White House pastry chef a bit too far with her constant requests to replace fatty foods like cream and butter with lower-calorie options: He’s quit, calling the decision “bittersweet,” various media reported. 
To quote WH Pastry Chef Bill Yosses, “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs.”
Even though I’m a natural nutritionist who does not support high calorie desserts, I’m glad to see someone finally stand up for what he believes in. Chef Yosses has my admiration because he took a stand for something he found objectionable to him, which most U.S. citizens are not doing with regard to ObamaCare, especially members of Congress and the Supreme Court who, in my humble opinion, should know better.
But then, maybe we ought to be asking if Archie Bunker had the Democrats sized up correctly?

What IF Citizens Really Understood the U.S. Constitution?
By Catherine J. Frompovich
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 On Activist Post
Response By Olddog
Generally speaking, this article would normally be found in the comments section of the site it was read from, but I was so pissed when I read it I decided to obtain the help of Jefferson’s Voice to write a rebuttal, which is copied below.
The bottom line is the dumbing down protocol has eviscerated critical thinking skills in this country and reinforced an evolutionary old hard wired tendency to ignore insidious threats. Then there are endless distractions that create all kinds of addictive behavior and profound myopia. How do we overcome this?
Sometimes shocks like the 2008 economic contraction will wake some people up, hence, Occupy Wall Street. For now though, the slow dismantling continues and American frogs continue to sit in the pot and cook. It's time for some powerful epiphanies to get the frogs moving! To get started, let's be honest that TPTB working around the clock to destroy our civil liberties and republican form of government (and all nation states, for that matter) are not simply greedy corporatists, they are international banksters and their minions, their agenda is both soul crushing and far reaching. Connect the dots.
The Constitution and Bill of Rights are important foundational documents in mankind's quest for codified civil liberty and representative government in a civilized society. There is no substitute for informed and critical minds that deeply grasp the timeless principles in those documents. Hence, it is not intended to be a plastic theology to accommodate inferior minds. The very best example of that surreptitious revision is the unconstitutional transformation from commodity money to debt currency, which is responsible for our present national and global malignancy . Bold comments by Olddog!
I requested help on this rebuttal because no one is more aware than I of the necessity of having an extraordinary recall and vocabulary when debating other people’s work, especially when the other person is more experienced, and has a higher intellect. I would compare this action to picking a fight with a man twice my size because I heard him make an insulting comment about the Constitution.
So, with that admission, one may ask, why did I use Jefferson’s Voice to help chastise Ms. Frompovich, and then add my own thoughts? In this case I was not satisfied with the lack of anger I expected from JV, and decided to point out why I am so pissed.
Ms. Frompovich has had a long lead on me when it comes to dissident writing, and I find no excuse for her subverting the learning curve of those just getting started in their research of America’s decline. That surreptitious “LIVING DOCUMENT” comment in an otherwise informative article is like using candy to lure children into the arms of a pedophile. Ditto on the advertisement for Hillsdale College!
As any quick mind can discern, those of us without an extraordinary mind and higher education than a G.E.D. working on our own without any coaching can lead one into thousands of traps, where confusion becomes unbearable and embarrassing.
Discovering how some of the most advanced minds in the history of humanity have managed to overcome the entire world of finance and control of National governments is no task for the lesser intellects, and there are no guarantees that your study material has not been intentionally designed to divert your path to true knowledge. With experience, you will recognize it almost every where you go.
Anyone can make mistakes, but when one has the tools and experience of Catherine, I find it comparable to treason.
The LIVING DOCUMENT claim, is a bull-shit brain fart flying from the leftist mindset, and a vicious lie to confuse the student who as yet, do not understand the necessity of having a doctrinal anchor that prevents their mind from being blown off course. SO!

The War Of The Titans Finally Begins
What is truly surprising about this “Clash of the Titans” is that hardly anyone’s talking about it in the terms that reflects just how big it really is. Can it get any bigger than CIA vs. SENATE?
That’s like Muhammad Ali vs. Mike Tyson. It’s just not supposed to happen … and yet it is … in real time.
When this first battle is over between Feinstein et al. and her opponents at Langley, the battlefield will be littered with political carcasses of every stripe and bureaucrats of every color. This is, incidentally, only the first battle of what will become a very long and ugly war. When the greater war is finished, there will be no winners, only losers. Just as it should be.
What exactly is a rouge agency?
(definition according to Dictionary.com)
no longer obedient, belonging, or accepted and hence not controllable or answerable; deviating, renegade: a rogue cop; a rogue union local.
Documented history is replete with authoritative accounts of the CIA (aka The Company) going rogue whenever, wherever, however it wants to. Answering to know one — ever — it marches to the beat of its own drummer. Although we cannot know exactly who that drummer is, we can extrapolate its identity by simply viewing the damage and destructionThe Company has wrought across the planet. Their agenda ALWAYS gives itself away by asking one simple question — “Qui bono?”. Who is it that reaps the most substantial gains from the ‘execution’ of the ever-covert CIA agenda?
The CIA Always Hides – Conveniently – Behind National Security ‘Shield’
The one obvious reason why the CIA has always gotten away with “bloody murder” wherever it sets up shop is because of the ongoing ruse known as invoking “National Security”. Has there ever been a bigger scam pulled on the American people, year after year, decade after decade? The way this little game works is that The Company has always, and will always, invoke this sacrosanct excuse for doing anything it wants to do, anywhere, anytime, IN THE NAME OF NATIONAL SECURITY. After all, who would ever argue with something so untouchable and sacred as our national security?
So, there you have it. The CIA does what it wants to do, and doesn’t do what it doesn’t want to do — 24/7 — in the interest (usually contrived) of ‘national security’. Of course, they have a little help with all the preferential legislated process and procedure which has given them plenty of cover since their inception. Before we get into where they really came from, what cover?
The vast majority of CIA operations are black budgeted. Therefore, they virtually always operate under cover of budgetary darkness, with nary a lick of real financial scrutiny or genuine congressional oversight. In other words, you simply cannot “follow the money” because there are limited funds budgeted by congressional appropriations ($14.7 billion in 2013). Much of what is appropriated is allocated for all the obvious and non-clandestine administrative and operating costs like overhead for the CIA’s headquarters in Langley, Virginia. For all practical purposes, CIA black operations are virtually invisible.
When it comes to the multitude of black operations conducted by the CIA worldwide, they are also immune to public disclosure because everything associated with them is ultra-classified and top secret. Not only will the details of their work never be disclosed in our lifetimes, they will be kept secret for all future generations. These are the ground rules that the CIA set up at its very inception. Perhaps it’s because The Company is nothing but a newer incarnation of its predecessor known as the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) that they off on the wrong foot.
The OSS was the US wartime Intelligence agency created in June of 1942 during World War 2 and was the predecessor of the CIA. The OSS was publicly dissolved in 1945, except that it really wasn’t. Not only wasn’t it, but its next incarnation — the CIA — became the beneficiary of the German Secret Services, by offering safe refuge to high level administrators and agents, as well as a whole host of Nazi war criminals. Operation Paperclip was just one of the several initiatives undertaken by the USA to monopolize German (and Nazi) expertise, knowledge and experience in several areas related to their war endeavors.
“Operation Paperclip was the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) program used to recruit the scientists of Nazi Germany for employment by the United States in the aftermath of World War II. It was conducted by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA), and in the context of the burgeoning Cold War, one purpose of Operation Paperclip was to deny German scientific expertise and knowledge to the Soviet Union and the United Kingdom, as well as inhibiting post-war Germany from redeveloping its military research capabilities.” (Source — Wikipedia – Office of Strategic Services)
In so doing, various processes, procedures and protocols were borrowed when appropriate from the highly ‘respected’ Nazi war institutions. Overall, the MO by which the CIA would operate globally very closely resembles the secrecy and stealth by which the WWII Nazis became famous. Herein lies the root problem for the USA, as well as the world-at-large.
Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely
When any institution is empowered to carry out coup d’états at will, overthrow democratically-elected governments, trigger revolutions both bloodless and violent, and incite civil wars, they necessarily act with total impunity. The CIA has assassinated scores of world leaders who were presidents and prime ministers, political power brokers and financial elite, corporate CEOs and Chairmen of the Board.
The vast majority of these assassinations were conducted so far under the radar that the deaths were officially attributed to suicide, illness or accident, and get this, natural causes. There is no organization on Earth that has successfully suicided so many individuals who had not a suicidal bone in their bodies. To this very day the fictitiously written CIA press releases, news accounts and obituaries serve as the ‘definitive’ record of many of those cold-blooded murders cloaked with suicide.
Any institution, which is deputized to take out the powerful and influential, moneyed and famous, who pose a threat to the politically-correct agenda of TPTB, will eventually self destruct. The usual process of such self-destruction follows a time-honored pattern that flows from hubris. The accumulated institutional arrogance and hierarchal ignorance eventually sets up the organizational leadership to provoke an adversary more powerful, or well connected, that it is. Today we see the Senate pounding its chest like never before in the face of CIA spying on Congress, as an example.
Ultimately, such a confrontation was inevitable. Any agency that is so used to always getting its own way will never be successfully reined in. How can it be when “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely“. However, such a rogue agency will eventually cross all the red lines one too many times, as many see the CIA do around the world every single day. They’re constantly revealing themselves through their handiwork, so that it’s now next to impossible not to recognize where they’ve just been. Wherever there’s manufactured chaos and confusion, or unprovoked violence and mayhem in a strategic geopolitical location, the CIA ‘s fingerprints are usually all over the crime scene.
Both the CIA and NSA have shown themselves to be completely without conscience. Likewise, and more significantly, they have no inclination toward any degree of self-restraint. Like kids in a candy store, they’re incorrigible. Why should those with political agendas and axes to grind not see their plans through, when they know they can act with total impunity. No one can stop them. Very few even know about their countless plots and furtive schemes. And all of the high-level administrators and deep cover operatives who do have been indoctrinated that all is acceptable … and performed in the vital interest of national security.
Like the well-known upper levels within Freemasonry, those who populate leadership in the CIA are chosen because they show no tendency to ever leave the spook reservation. They also know that they can never leave, since it’s always a lifetime membership once you’re initiated. Unless, of course, one cares not about being suicided … or worse. At the end of the day, The Company rarely has to worry about someone turning in their resignation for these reasons. Even those who appear to leave are usually involved in a psyop of some kind for one side or the other*.
“Who ever has the biggest dog wins the fight.”
There’s an old saying in Florida politics that goes something like that. To a great extent, in mundane matters, it’s true. In the instant case of CIA vs. SENATE, it’s a little more complicated. However, as far as We the People are concerned, the more complicated the better, since a long and protracted war between them will eventually precipitate plenty of much needed revelation on both parties.
More importantly, to expose them both for the corrupt and dangerous institutions that each has become is the ideal outcome. In this way, as they again say in Florida, sunshine can be the best disinfectant. Sometimes, all that’s needed is a little sunlight to shine on that which is seriously infected, especially throughout institutions as sick as the CIA (and NSA).
In light of the most “shocking” and “outrageous” stories about the CIA spying on the most august Congressional body, one thing is certain: There are surely many more victims of CIA espionage than the Congress. Why not the Supreme Court? Or the General Accounting Office? How about the IRS and the Federal Reserve? Certainly the White House itself is not immune to CIA espionage, is it? Neither is the Justice Department nor the U.S. Patent Office.
Once this genie of highly consequential revelation is out of the bottle, it will be impossible to put back. Which will only accelerate and intensify the many battles and wars that are sure to come. This is the way that revolutions occur. Once a critical mass of individuals understands the depth and breath of criminal activity being committed in their name, and with their tax dollars, the rebellion will start in earnest. From this point on, it really is just a matter of ‘execution’ (as they like to say, in the CIA).
Since the seeds of its own destruction were sewn at the inauguration of the Central Intelligence Agency back in 1945, eventually those seeds would sprout into the karmic blowback that is now being witnessed. The very same strategies and tactics that the CIA has used around the world for decades will be used against it. Divide and conquer is just one of the many devices used with great effect in nation after nation, toppling governments around the world on a whim. Now it’s their turn to receive their just desserts.
CIA and NSA: Fric and Frac of US Security State
It should come as no surprise that this CIA-started conflagration is raging right after the NSA World Scandal. Both of these rogue agencies are expert and reliable at causing real outrage and mischief both at home and abroad. Even though the CIA is strictly prohibited by federal law from operating as such on American soil, it still manages to muck things up right here in their own back yard. They simply could not refuse the temptation to implement their agenda, just as they routinely do abroad (See the Ukraine, Venezuela, Syria, Libya, Iran, for their more recent unmitigated disasters).
The entire world has seen for many decades the abuse and misuse of intelligence agencies for the benefit of a few. Now that the light of day has revealed these two as the Fric and Frac that they really are, they both ought to be frogmarched out of DC, and perhaps off the planet. What else can be done with these serially criminal agencies with intractable and often odious agendas?
Ideally, it would be quite the development if they both turned on each other so that bully could duke it out with bully. Just as the CIA vs. SENATE fight is showing us in living color on the evening news. This particular fight, however, is unlikely to produce a new Heavyweight Champion of the World. The “War of the Titans” is rarely that short, and usually occurs on many different battlefields over the course of years if not decades.
There is another telling parable that, yes, originated in the great State of Florida that goes like this:
You can’t beat City Hall. Even when you think you’ve won, you really haven’t. Therefore, better to play it smart.
Wait for City Hall to take on the County. Or the States to go after the FED. Or Congress to mix it up with the CIA.
Playing the David can work quite well by carefully slinging the shot at each Goliath on the battlefield. If every Goliath is hit between the eyes, you may only knock them down. However, when they get back up, they are only facing other very angry Goliaths. Each one will be fighting mad, and will gladly do battle with any other Goliath still standing.
Then, David only needs to sit on the sidelines and watch all the Goliaths go after each other, just like Snowden and Assange are currently doing from their safe havens.
Eventually, the “CIA vs. SENATE” will evolve into an epic and unprecedented brawl involving many more parties than just the three branches of the US Government. Might as well pull up a seat, sit back and watch the fight.

It’s important to note that the CIA has run the extra-judicial drone assassination program from the beginning. This is what they do. They kill and murder people who have faced no court or trial or jury. Just because the CIA labels someone a terrorist, the American people are supposed to accept their verdict and death sentence. Their ‘convictions’ are neither legal nor moral, and they have done irreparable harm to the nation because of this unlawful and heinous behavior.
The killer drones accurately reflect the predominant and extremely dangerous type of thinking at the CIA. The Company is truly in the business of death and destruction, murder and mayhem. And they get away with it all day long, every day, with minimal scrutiny.
Perhaps it’s time for The Company to go bankrupt. Their purpose in the world seems to be incompatible with those of the great majority of US citizens who only desire peace and prosperity. Just as the world’s masses strive for a world without war, and a safe place to live, work and play.
 Edward Snowden has done a marvelous job at playing David as the following recent article demonstrates: Snowden Calls Feinstein Hypocrite on CIA Spying
 “Corrupt Senate” refers to its predictable behavior as outlined in the following exposé. Such a flagrant display of hypocrisy, disregard and betrayal of the American people by the Senate has become par for the political course.

The neo-fascist coup d'état that overthrew the democratically elected government of Ukraine has the President of the United States firmly on board. Obama's support for this illegitimate, unlawful transfer of power in Ukraine has reached schizophrenic heights as an Executive Order has proclaimed a "national emergency" in defense of the Molotov tossing, spiked bat-swinging Neo-Nazis of Kiev. As Secretary of State John Kerry threatens to escalate the East/West conflict in cryptic allusions, the world now awaits the possibility of World War. US warships, planes and troops continue to scurry toward the region.
What Obama has done is absurd. There is no more diplomatic way of stating it. His hypocrisy and support for clearly illegitimate and unelected Ukrainian leaders now threatens the freedom, and lives, of Americans who call out this insanity, such as yours truly in this very article.
Obama's official embrace of the ridiculous rivals his predecessors, Bush and Cheney. This is no coincidence. The architect of the Ukraine regime change plan was none other than Dick Cheney's former adviser and Obama's current Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland. The Project for a New American Century lurches forward like Frankenstein's monster.
I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, find that the actions and policies of persons — including persons who have asserted governmental authority in the Crimean region without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine — that undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets, constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.
The "Government of Ukraine" (nice use of CAPS) has just been installed via chaotic street battles and a mysterious sniper, apparently brought in by the neo-nazi Maidan leaders. The elected President of Ukraine has fled to Russia, leaving a power vacuum where Obama's so-called "Government of Ukraine" enjoys no actual democratic legitimacy. This government was simply not elected by anyone. Period. Full stop.
However, Victoria Nuland has copped to spending $5 Billion of U.S. taxpayer money to achieve this goal and to install this regime. The US State Department has been instrumental in deciding who would and who would not become Obama's current "Government of Ukraine." This flagrantly gratuitous fraud is backed up by Executive threats of property seizure and even escalation toward war.
Crimea, which has yet been unaffected by the brutal street violence of Kiev, has arranged a popular referendum — an actual vote of the people — to decide whether they want to remain a part of Victoria Nuland and Barack Obama's little neo-fascist experiment. The people of Crimea may choose independence or protection by Russia, but this is not to be permitted by Washington.
There will be a [U.S.] response of some kind to the [Crimean] referendum itself … If there is no sign [from Russia] of any capacity to respond to this issue … there will be a very serious series of steps on Monday. – John Kerry, 3.13.2014
So, buckle down, America. There's currently a "national emergency" that people in a tiny region half a world away may vote the wrong way, the way that Washington officially dislikes.
Crimea has always been a part of the Russian sphere of influence, as it has majority Russian ancestry. The Russians, predictably, want to keep their port on the Black Sea. NATO/Washington wants to take away this naval port. If you can imagine a game of Risk in play, this is simply a matter of moving a few military resources around on a map to embolden one and to strategically weaken the other.
Add to that Chevron's holdings in Ukraine, with a nice profitable lease to frack the hell out of the country and extract natural gas for the next 50 years, and then we have a very obvious, tired old story of resource wars and strategic one-upsmanship. That and the IMF plan to indebt the people of Ukraine for many more billions in loans and impose "austerity" on their vital services. This is the "Economic Hitman" formula employed countless times around the world and already written about extensively. These are the forces in play, fun and games and billions to be extracted.
Plan Ukraine has absolutely nothing to do with democracy, with freedom, with vision, with any of the lofty rhetorical snake shit that readily squirts out of American television sets.
Will Ukraine look a lot like Syria in six months?
These neo-con warmongers, like John McCain and Victoria Nuland, had a lot of good chuckles empowering Al Qaeda in Syria in broad daylight, their junior partner Saudi Arabia doing most of the covert dirty work. Civilians on the ground are at the most risk, but Crimea so far appears to be relatively secure. That would be Russia's doing.
Neo-con men like Barack, in addition to staggering hypocrisy, can be quite petulant and vindictive in their policymaking. Here's the meat of his latest threat against the people of the world, including the reader:
…any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State:
(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following:
(A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine;
That designation would include Nuland, McCain, Kerry and Obama himself if anyone was keeping track. But Caesar's diktats are subject to Caesar's interpretation. Caesar's laws are to be applied in the manner Caesar prefers. Law is reduced to whim now, and it doesn't really have to make sense; does it?

When one studies history, all events seem to revolve around the applications and degenerations of war. Great feats of human understanding, realization and enlightenment barely register in the mental footnotes of the average person. War is what we remember, idealize and aggrandize, which is why war is the tool most often exploited by oligarchy to distract the masses while it centralizes power.
With the exception of a few revolutions, most wars are instigated and controlled by financial elites, manipulating governments on both sides of the game to produce a preconceived result. The rise of National Socialism in Germany, for instance, was largely funded by corporate entities based in the U.S., including Rockefeller giant Standard Oil, JPMorgan and even IBM, which built the collating machines specifically used to organize Nazi extermination camps, the same machines IBM representatives serviced on site at places like Auschwitz. As a public figure, Adolf Hitler was considered a joke by most people in German society, until, of course, the Nazi Party received incredible levels of corporate investment. This aid was most evident in what came to be known as the Keppler Fund created through the Keppler Circle, a group of interests with contacts largely based in the U.S.
George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, used his position as director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation to launder money for the Third Reich throughout the war. After being exposed and charged for trading with the enemy, the case against Bush magically disappeared in a puff of smoke, and the Bush family went on to become one of the most powerful political forces in America.
Without the aid of international conglomerates and banks, the Third Reich would have never risen to power.
The rise of communism in Russia through the Bolshevik Revolution was no different. As outlined in Professor Antony Sutton’s book Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution with vast detail and irrefutable supporting evidence, it was globalist financiers that created the social petri dish in which the communist takeover flourished. The same financiers that aided the Nazis…
The two sides, National Socialism and communism, were essentially identical despotic governmental structures conjured by the same group of elites. These two sides, these two fraudulent ideologies, were then pitted against each other in an engineered conflict that we now call World War II, resulting in an estimated 48 million casualties globally and the ultimate formation of the United Nations, a precursor to world government.
Every major international crisis for the past century or more has ended with an even greater consolidation of world power into the hands of the few, and this is no accident.
When I discuss the concept of the false left/right paradigm with people, especially those in the liberty movement, I often see a light turn on, a moment of awareness in their faces. Many of us understand the con game because we live it day to day. We see past the superficial rhetoric of Republican and Democratic party leadership and take note of their numerous similarities, including foreign policy, domestic defense policy and economic policy. The voting records of the major players in both parties are almost identical. One is hard-pressed to find much difference in ideology between Bush and Barack Obama, for example; or Obama and John McCain; or Obama and Mitt Romney, for that matter.
When I suggest, however, that similar false paradigms are used between two apparently opposed nations, the light fades, and people are left dumbstruck. Despite the fact that globalist financiers shoveled capital into the U.S., British, German and Soviet military complexes all at the same time during World War II, many Americans do not want to believe that such a thing could be happening today.
In response, I present the crisis in Ukraine versus the crisis in Syria…
Ukraine Versus Syria
It seems as though much of the public has already forgotten that at the end of 2013, the U.S. came within a razor’s edge of economic disaster — not to mention the possibility of World War III. The war drums in Washington were thundering for “intervention” in Syria and the overthrow of Bashar Assad. The only thing that saved us, I believe, were the tireless efforts of the independent media in exposing the darker motives behind the Syrian insurgency and the bloodlust of the Obama Administration. The problem is that when the elites lose one avenue toward war and distraction, they have a tendency to simply create another. Eventually, the public is so overwhelmed by multiple trigger points and political powder kegs that they lose track of reality. I often call this the “scattergun effect.”
The crisis in the Ukraine is almost a carbon copy of the civil war in Syria, culminating in what I believe to be the exact same intent.
Money from globalist centers has been flowing into the Ukrainian opposition since at least 2004, when the Carnegie Foundation was caught filtering funds to anti-Russian political candidate Viktor Yushchenko, as well as to the groups who supported him.
The Ukrainian Supreme Court called for a runoff due to massive voter fraud and the rise of the pro-Western Orange Revolution, determining the winner to be Yushchenko over none other than Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych went on to win the 2010 elections, and the revolution returned to oust him this year.
It has been discovered that the current revolution has also been receiving funds from NATO and U.S. interests, not just from the State Department, but also from billionaires like Pierre Omidyar, the chairman of eBay and the new boss of journalist Glen Greenwald, the same journalist who is now famous for being the first to expose National Security Agency documents obtained by Edward Snowden.
Much of the monetary support from such financiers was being funneled to men like Oleh Rybachuk, the right-hand man to Yanukovych during the Orange Revolution and a favorite of neoconservatives and the State Department in the U.S.
The International Monetary Fund has also jumped at the chance to throw money at the new Ukrainian regime, which would prevent default of the country and allow the opposition movement to focus their attentions on Russia.
The revolution in Syria was also primarily driven by Western funds and arms transferred through training grounds like Benghazi, Libya. There is much evidence to suggest that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was designed to possibly cover up the arming of Syrian rebels by the CIA, who had agents on the ground who still have not been allowed to testify in front of Congress.
After this conspiracy was exposed in the mainstream, globalist-controlled governments decided to openly supply money and weapons to the Syrian insurgency, instead of ending the subterfuge.
Some revolutions are quite real in their intent and motivations. But many either become co-opted by elites through financing, or they are created from thin air from the very beginning. Usually, the rebellions that are completely fabricated tend to lean toward extreme zealotry.
The Syrian insurgency is rife with, if not entirely dominated by, men associated with al-Qaida. Governments in the U.S. and Israel continue to support the insurgency despite their open affiliation with a group that is supposedly our greatest enemy. Syrian insurgents have been recorded committing numerous atrocities, including mass execution, the torture of civilians and even the cannibalism of human organs.
The revolution in Ukraine is run primarily by the Svoboda Party, a National Socialist (fascist) organization headed by Oleh Tyahnybok. Here is a photo of Tyahnybok giving a familiar salute:
So far, the opposition in Ukraine has been mostly careful in avoiding the same insane displays of random violence that plagued the Syrians’ public image. It is important to remember though that mainstream outlets like Reuters went far out of their way in attempts to humanize Syrian al-Qaida. Their methods were exposed only through the vigilance of the independent media. With the fascist Svoboda in power in the Ukraine, I believe it is only a matter of time before we see video reports of similar atrocities, giving Russia a perfect rationalization to use military force.
I am now thoroughly convinced that John McCain is a pasty ghoul of the highest order. He claims to be conservative yet supports almost every action of the Obama Administration. He is constantly defending anti-Constitutional actions by the Federal government, including the Enemy Belligerents Act, which was eventually melded into the National Defense Authorization Act; NSA surveillance of U.S. citizens; and even gun control.
And for some reason, the guy makes appearances like clockwork right before or during major overthrows of existing governments. McCain was in Libya during the coup against Moammar Gadhafi.
McCain showed up to essentially buy off the rebels in Tunisia.
McCain hung out with al-Qaida in Syria.
And, what a surprise, McCain met with the Ukrainian opposition movement just before the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovych. Here is a photo of McCain giving a speech to the opposition with none other than Neo-Nazi Oleh Tyahnybok standing over his left shoulder.
Why McCain? I have no idea. All I know is, if this guy shows up in your country, take cover.
Russia In The Middle
The great danger in Syria was not necessarily the chance of war with Assad. Rather, it was the chance that a war with Assad would expand into a larger conflagration with Iran and Russia. Russia’s only naval facility in the Mideast is on the coast of Tartus in Syria, and Russia has long-standing economic and political ties to Syria and Iran. Any physical action by the West in the region would have elicited a response from Vladimir Putin. The mainstream argument claims that the threat of Russian intervention scared off Obama, but I believe the only reason war actions were not executed by the White House and the globalists was because they didn’t have even minimal support from the general public. For any war, you need at least a moderate percentage of the population to back your play.
In Ukraine, we find the globalists creating tensions between the West and the East yet again. Russia’s most vital naval base sits in Crimea, an autonomous state tethered to the Ukrainian mainland. Currently, Russia has flooded Crimea with troops in response to the regime change in Ukraine. The new Ukrainian government (backed by NATO) has called this an “invasion” and an act of war, while Western warmongers like McCain and Lindsay Graham spread the propaganda meme that Russia made such a move only because Putin believes the Obama Administration to be “weak.”
Clearly, the idea here is to engineer either high tensions or eventual war between Russia and the United States. Syria failed to produce the desired outcome, so the Ukraine was tapped instead.
Energy Markets And The Dollar At Risk
In Syria, any U.S. led military action would have resulted in the immediate closing of the Straight of Hormuz by Iran, threatening to obstruct up to 30% of global petroleum shipments. Foreign resentment could have easily led to the abandonment of the U.S. dollar as the petro-currency. Both China and Russia implied the possibility of an economic response to American intervention, though they did not officially go into specifics. In all likelihood, the dollar's world reserve status would have been damaged irrevocably.
In the Ukraine, the chance of intervention has been countered with VERY specific threats from Russia, including a freeze on natural gas imports to the European Union through Gazprom, which supplies approximately 30% of the EU's fuel. In 2009, a temporary Ukranian pipeline closure led to widespread shortages across Europe. While some in the mainstream claim that Russia's influence over EU energy has "diminished" the fact is a loss of 30% of natural gas reserves for an extended period would inflate energy prices wildly and cripple the EU's economy.
Another specific reaction given by Russia is the dumping of U.S. treasury bonds. Russia's bond holdings may not seem like much leverage, except for the fact that China has now publicly backed Russian efforts in the Ukraine, just as they backed Russian opposition to U.S. activities in Syria. A dump of bonds by Russia would invariably be followed by a Chinese dump as well. In fact, China and Russia have been setting the stage for a global dollar decoupling since at least 2008. I have been warning for years that globalists and central bankers needed a "cover event", a distraction or scapegoat imposing enough to provide a veil of chaos in which they could then destroy the greenback as the world reserve and usher in a global currency system. The Ukraine crisis offers yet another opportunity for this plan to unfold.
The False Paradigm And The Globalist Chessboard
So far, I have outlined what appears to be a correspondence of conspiracy between Syria and the Ukraine and how each event has the continued potential to trigger regional conflict, dollar collapse, or world war. But is this conspiracy one-sided? Are only the West and NATO being manipulated by globalists to box in Russia and provoke a conflict? And what do globalists have to gain by sparking such disaster?
As with every other catastrophic fabricated war, the goal is the erasure of sovereign identity while consolidating economic, political and social power. It is not enough that global financiers dominate the banking industry and own most politicians; they want to transform the public psyche. They want US to ask THEM for global governance. This manufacture of consent is often achieved by pitting two controlled governments against each other and then, in the wake of the tragedy, calling for global unification. The argument is always presented that if we simply abandoned the concept of nation states and reform under a single world body, all war would “disappear.”
The question is whether Russia’s Putin is aware of the plan. Is he a part of it? Are we seeing repeat theater of a puppet Russia versus a puppet NATO like that witnessed during the Cold War?
What I do know is that Putin has, a number of times in the past, called for global control of the economy through the IMF and the institution of a new global currency using the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights (SDR).
Loans from the IMF are what saved Russia from debt default in the late 1990s. And Putin has recently called for consultations with the IMF concerning Crimea. Remember, this is the same IMF that is working to fund his opponents in Western Ukraine.
Bottom line, if you believe in national sovereignty and decentralization of power, Putin is NOT your buddy. Once again, we have the globalists injecting money into both sides of a conflict which could morph into something nightmarish. Putin wants global economic governance and consolidation under the IMF just as much as the supposedly "American-run" IMF wants consolidation.
Global governance of finance and money creation ultimately means global governance of everything else. Is a war being created through the false paradigm of East versus West in order to pave the road for global government? Are East/West tensions being exploited as a smokescreen for the final destruction of the dollar's world reserve status? It is hard to say if the Ukraine will be the final trigger; however, the evidence suggests that if a conflict occurs, regardless of who “wins” such a scenario, the IMF comes out on top.
Imagine you are playing a game of chess by yourself. Which side wins at the end of that game: black or white? The answer is it doesn’t matter. You always win when you control both sides.

Surveillance is coming at us from all angles. Chips, drones, TSA checkpoints, smart meters, back-doored electronic products, video cameras, spying home appliances; our phone calls and emails and keystrokes and product purchases are recorded.
The government and its allied corporations will know whatever they want to know about us.
What happens when all nations are blanketed from stem to stern with surveillance?
Public utilities, acting on government orders, will be able to allot electricity in amounts and at times it wishes to. This is leading to an overarching plan for energy distribution to the entire population.
Claiming shortages and limited options, governments will essentially be redistributing wealth, in the form of energy, under a collectivist model.
National health insurance plans (such as Obamacare) offer another clue. Such plans have no logistical chance of operating unless every citizen is assigned a medical ID package, which is a de facto identity card. In the medical arena, this means cradle-to-grave tracking.
Surveillance inevitably leads to: placing every individual under systems of control. It isn’t just “we’re watching you” or “we’re stamping out dissent.” It’s “we’re directing your participation in life.”
As a security analyst in the private sector once told me, “When you can see what every employee is doing, when you have it all at your fingertips, you naturally move on to thinking about how you can control those patterns and flows of movement and activity. It’s irresistible. You look at your employees as pieces on a board. The only question is, what game do you want to play with them?”
Every such apparatus is ruled, from the top, by the bankers Central Planners. When it’s an entire nation, upper-echelon technocrats revel in the idea of blueprinting, mapping, charting, and regulating the flows of all goods and services and people, “for the common good.”
Water, food, medicine, land use, transportation—they all become items of a networked system that chooses who gets what and when, and who can travel where, and under what conditions.
This is the wet dream of technocrats. They believe they are saving the world, while playing a fascinating game of multidimensional chess.
As new technologies are discovered and come on line, the planners decide how they will be utilized and for whose benefit.
In order to implement such a far-reaching objective, with minimal resistance from the global population, manufactured crises are unleashed which persuade the masses that the planet is under threat and needs “the wise ones” to rescue it and us.
We watch (and fight in) wars and more wars, each one exacerbated and even invented. We are presented with phony epidemics that are falsely promoted as scourges.
The only response, we are led to believe, is more humane control over the population.
On top of that, we are fed an unending stream of propaganda aimed at convincing us that “the great good for the greatest number” is the only humane and acceptable principle of existence. All prior systems of belief are outmoded. We know better now. We must be good and kind and generous to everyone at all times.
Under this quasi-religious banner, which has great emotional appeal, appears The Plan. Our leaders allocate and withhold on the basis of their greater knowledge. We comply. We willingly comply, because we are enlisted in a universal army of altruistic concern.
This is a classic bait and switch. We are taught to believe that service for the greater good is an unchallengeable goal and credo. And then, later, we find out it has been hijacked to institute more power over us, in every way.
The coordinated and networked surveillance of Earth and its people is fed into algorithms that spit out solutions. This much food will go here; that much water will go there; here there will be medical care; there medical care will be severely rationed. These people will be permitted to travel. Those people will be confined to their cities and towns.
Every essential of life—managed with on-off switches, and the consequences will play out.
An incredibly complex system of interlocking decisions will be hailed as messianic.
Surveillance; planning; control.
This is the vision.
It isn’t ours. It never was. But we are not consulted.
Instead we are made witness to watershed events: the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing; the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center; the 2001 assault on the Trade Center and the Pentagon. These ops paralleled the unleashing of better and more far-ranging methods of surveillance.
We are profiled down to the threads on our clothing and DNA in our cells. But what is our profile of the technocrats and their bosses?
They are divorced from human life. They live in a vacuum. They take pleasure from that vacuum.
In 1982, I interviewed Bill Perry, who had just left his job as PR chief at Lawrence Livermore Labs, where scientists design nuclear weapons. Perry had been given the kind of job PR people long for. But one day, when he passed the desk of a researcher and listened to his complaints about budget limitations, Perry said, “Listen, America already has the means to blow up the whole planet eight times. What more do you need?”
The researcher looked up at him with a genuinely puzzled expression. He said, “You don’t understand, Bill. This is a problem in physics.”
In the same detached sense, the technocrats who want to calculate and direct our future, move by move, minute by minute, see us as components of a complex and very interesting problem.
Yes, they indeed expect to exercise power and control. But they also live in an abstraction. They deal their answers from that realm. They exercise cool passion. They see, for example, that not every single twitch of thought of every person on earth is yet mapped, so they want to finish constructing the means by which they can chart those “missing elements.” They want to complete the formula.
They view their research as a wholly natural implication of the mathematics they can manipulate. They swim in technology and they want to extend its architecture. To abandon the program would be tantamount to denying their own intelligence. They climb the mountain because it is there.
They do perceive that one factor does not fit their algorithms: the free individual. It’s the wild card. Therefore, they are compelled to analyze freedom and break it down into DNA functions and brain processes. They assume, because they must, that the free individual is an illusory idea that flows from some older configuration of synaptic transmission, at a time in our evolution when we needed it. But now, they suppose, the engineering of human activity and thought has superseded such quaint notions. Now we all can be tracked, traced, and studied on a different and wider scale. Now we can be seen for what we really are: a hive.
Therefore, we must be instructed, within tight limits, about our various functions.
Today’s technocrats flourish with great optimism as they design the future world and its single society. If they run out of pieces of their puzzle to study, they’ll try to track the motion of every atom and electron and quark in the universe. They’ll delight in it.
Knowing all this, we know the terms of the war we are in.
The Central Planners have an equation: “free=uncontrolled=dangerous.”
By the gross terms of that equation, they lump us in with thugs and murderers and terrorists. They even see the normal functioning of the brain as a threat, as an intrinsically defective process, and they have long since decided that organ must be corrected with drugs.
We, on the other hand, must assert, in every way possible, that freedom is real and inviolable, and we must back that up with our actions.

The ATF-FBI debacles at Waco, Texas and Ruby Ridge, Idaho, in the 1990s remained isolated incidents because those attacked were fringe elements of society, assaulted in isolated areas. The Branch Davidians were an oddball religious cult, while the Weaver family were isolationist white separatists. The federal government was able to get away with the casualties they inflicted upon these people in these locations because these people were “different.”
That isn’t the dynamic in play in Connecticut.

Connecticut: The Coming Storm
Posted by Mike McDaniel
Friday, June 27th, 2014, 0-dark-thiry: The politicians have made their decision. By a twist of fate–your file simply happened to be on the top of the stack for no particular reason–you’ll be the first example. A state police SWAT team pull to the curb in front of your home, leap from their van and rush to your front door. Two black-clad men pull back a ram and swing it toward your front door, aiming just above the knob, while the rest of the team waits anxiously, their automatic weapons charged and off safe. Two hope they’ll get the opportunity to shoot. At least one wants to manufacture the opportunity.
You’ve made two major mistakes; they will cost your life and destroy your family: you live in a blue state where the governor and legislature have no respect for the Constitution and the lives and liberty of citizens, and you were foolish enough to obey the law.
Starting awake from a sound sleep by the explosion of your door being smashed open and the heavy stomping of booted feet, you stumble down the stairs and into the hallway. As you turn toward the sounds, you’re blinded by multiple bright lights and hear many people screaming at you, but their words are unintelligible. You raise your hands to shield your eyes, but you have your cell phone in your right hand. As soon as it comes into view, you’re overwhelmed by a tidal wave of explosive sounds and feel the first bullets rip into your body. There are stars, so many stars, winking and suddenly, everything goes silent and black and your last conscious thought is a feeling of falling.
The SWAT team, surprised when you suddenly appeared only five feet from them, screamed conflicting commands at you. When you raised your hands and one of them saw something dark in your right hand, he jerked back the trigger of his MP5 submachine gun and didn’t let go until the weapon was empty. Seeing him fire, four more did the same. Of the 137 rounds five of the team initially fired, only 18 actually hit you, but it was enough. The rest shredded your home from floor to ceiling and wall to wall. Six nearby homes were hit, as were four cars. As you lay dying, your heart beating ever more slowly and weakly, you were spared the horror of your wife’s death.
As she descended the stairs, she saw you hit, blood spurting everywhere, falling to the floor, she screamed loud and long and ran down the steps. When she suddenly leapt into the hallway from the staircase, the nearest officer, who had been staring in shock at your bleeding body, and most of all, at the cell phone near your right hand, was startled. One of only two who had not completely emptied his magazine, he emptied it into her. The rest tried, but with one other exception, their guns were empty, and they frantically and impotently jerked their triggers. The other exception managed to fire the remaining six rounds in his weapon. Of the final 13 rounds fired, eleven hit your wife, five in the chest, three in the head. She was dead before her body fell onto yours, the sickening thump of her head on the hardwood floor echoing in the sudden silence and roiling gun smoke.
That was when they heard screaming upstairs, and gathering their courage and slamming fresh magazines into their guns, rushed upstairs, breaking into your 7-year old daughter’s bedroom, to find her lying in a widening pool of blood on her tiny bed. One of the officers tripped over his own feet as he was charging into the house and triggered nearly a full magazine through the ceiling–into her bedroom and through her bed. One of his fellow officers caught three rounds on his bullet resistant vest, but that will be covered up for years. Your daughter will survive. She’ll be in a medically induced coma for two weeks, and when she awakens, she’ll be informed she’s an orphan, a paraplegic orphan with a single lung.
An investigation of the State Police SWAT team by the State Police done within a month of the murders will find the State Police blameless, and will proclaim them heroic paragons of SWAT virtue.
Your sister’s family gladly takes your daughter in, and after two years, years in which the State Attorney General, the Governor, many politicians and the news media depict you, your wife, and even your daughter as murderous domestic terrorists, a jury finally awards your daughter 30 million dollars. She’ll need every penny to support her the remainder of her shortened life. Unfortunately, a judge sympathetic to the state reduces the award to seven million dollars. The AG, Governor and his advisors, angry and vindictive, get authorization from a corrupt and cooperative judge to steal your daughter from your sister’s family and put her in a group foster home run by people who do it for the substantial money the state pays. The state also seizes the 7 million dollars for reimbursement for taking care of your daughter. The Speaker of the State House of Representatives pronounces it a just and fitting end for a family of domestic terrorists and swears to bring justice to all domestic terrorists.
Why were the police there? You tried to obey the law and register an AR-15 you bought. Unfortunately, you missed the deadline by two days, so the state knew you had the rifle and four magazines. What they didn’t know was that you bought the gun as a birthday present for your adult son who lives in Montana. The gun and magazines were in Montana only a week after you bought it. The state police attacked your home because they thought you had an “assault weapon” and “high capacity magazines,” all of which had been in Montana for months. They were scared to death of anyone with an “assault weapon,” so they sent a SWAT team.
Documents eventually made public during the civil suit will reveal that the state police made no attempt to verify that you still owned the weapon. They will reveal that a corrupt and cooperative judge–guess who?–signed hundreds of blank search warrants. They will also reveal that only 31% of local police departments and sheriff’s offices cooperated with the State Police; 69% refused to violate the Constitution. Not that any of that means anything to you. You screwed up and you’re dead. Your daughter will come to wish she had died that night as well.
Far-out fiction? The decision about which I spoke is being made in Connecticut as you read this article. Connecticut’s most recent gun restrictions signed into law by Governor Dan Malloy (D) include the requirement that anyone with magazines of greater than 10 round capacity must register them, and all “assault weapons,” with the state no later than January 1, 2014. Under many circumstances, violation of these laws is a felony.
As Bob Owens at Bearing Arms reports, most Connecticut residents disobeyed their legislative betters:
Only 50,000 firearms and 38,000 magazines were registered. Perhaps another 350,000 firearms belong to those who refused to register their arms. Nearly 2 million magazines are thought to remain unregistered.
These unregistered firearms and magazines are thought to belong to 80,000-100,000 gun owners who view the law as a blatantly unconstitutional infringement upon the very spirit of the Second Amendment, and a prelude to confiscation.
But what about people who did their best to obey the law? Suckers!
Those most obviously in danger of being arrested at this time are 106 rifle owners and and 108 magazine owners who tried to register their arms, too late. The government knows exactly who they are through their botched registrations, and sent them letters giving them options on how to surrender their arms and magazines.
But the police wouldn’t do that! Yes they would, at least enough of them to fire a second shot heard around the world. Let’s briefly examine what the police are sworn to do and how they think.
All police officers swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and to enforce the laws of their jurisdiction. They are members of the executive branch of government, and like the President or the Governors of the several states, are responsible for seeing that the laws are faithfully enforced. There are always two potentially exclusive principals at play in law enforcement: officers are expected to fairly and uniformly enforce the law, yet may lawfully refuse illegal orders and may refuse to enforce unconstitutional laws.
Practically, this rarely becomes an imminent conflict. Officers are given a great deal of discretion, and usually don’t enforce ridiculous, unconstitutional laws. Almost always, no one says a word about it. This is so because thoughtful, professional officers know that they are the pointy end of the spear. They know that the only reason our system works–and they survive–is because most people respect the law and are willing to obey it most of the time. Were that not true, police officers wouldn’t last a day. The police need the respect and willing cooperation of the public, and smart cops understand this.
Legislators, on the other hand, often care about nothing but seizing and maintaining power. Too many come to see themselves not as public servants hired temporarily to do the people’s business, but as the intellectual and moral superiors of the people, divinely chosen–by themselves; they recognize no higher power–to tell the people what to think, what to say, what to own and how to behave. They do not react well to the people thinking for themselves or refusing to obey. They forget–if they ever knew–that no rational legislator passes a law they know will not be obeyed, because when they do, and when people ignore them, a difficult choice is forced upon them. Take it and back down from a law they should never have written in the first place, or attack and show those peasants who’s boss. Punish them for daring to challenge their betters.
And who are the enforcers for the elite legislative class? The police.
Police officers must always consider three factors in their law enforcement decisions:
(1) Maintaining the rule of law. They do this by upholding the Constitution, fairly enforcing the laws that actually have to do with public safety while honoring the rights of all.
(2) Upholding the social contract. Police officers are given their powers by the people to deal with truly dangerous and harmful people and situations. People are willing to respect and obey the police as long as they do not breach the social contract by becoming not even-handed enforcers of laws that actually protect the public and make civilized society possible, but partisan enforcers for a lawless government.
(3) Doing what is reasonably necessary to do their jobs honestly and honorably.
Smart police supervisors and executives also know they should never give an order that will not be obeyed. Even so, will the police violate the Constitution, break the social contract, act dishonestly and dishonorably in doing their jobs? Many will. Refusal might mean the loss of career and pension, discipline, even prosecution. Some buy into the idea that they are the masters of the people, not their servants. Others will go along to get along. Some will honestly, but wrongfully, believe their duty is to follow orders regardless. But enough will do it.
The decision facing Connecticut legislators, the Attorney General and the Governor is stark: do they back down, refuse to actively pursue gun owners made instant felons by their unconstitutional laws, or do they suppress the peasants, perhaps even kill a few to make the point? That would never happen? Consider the Jose Guerena case, and the case of Andrew Lee Scott. Consider this from The Examiner:
A journalist in Connecticut reports that the highly restrictive and punitive gun control laws the state passed last year carry an ominous threat for citizens.
Those who missed the deadline to register their ‘assault weapons’ and high capacity magazines, which have been outlawed, will be treated as criminals although they may have attempted to obey the law but just missed the deadline.
Ed Jacovino of The Journal Inquirer further stated that Michael P, Lawler, a top aide to Gov. Dannel Malloy, contends that the state will punish those who missed the registration deadline whether they intended to or not.
According to Jacovino: ‘And while the state won’t immediately prosecute those who missed the deadline, it isn’t ignoring that information, either. The rifle and magazine declarations will be included in information given to police responding to a certain address. ‘This would be a factor in deciding how to respond to different situations,’ Lawlor says.’
Read that statement closely. Lawlor is saying that if a citizen calls the police to report a crime in progress, officers will be able to see whether or not the person reporting the crime has registered their assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and will approach the emergency call accordingly.
Honest officers trying to do their jobs honorably would carefully consider the three aforementioned factors. They would realize that these laws are clearly unconstitutional and will, sooner rather than later, be ruled so. They would understand that pursuing honest citizens who refuse to obey an unconstitutional law is a gross and unforgivable violation of the social contract, and such violations will cause breaches that will never be healed. Trust lost is never regained. Particularly, arresting–even killing, and some will die–people who actually tried to obey even an unconstitutional law but missed a deadline by a day or two is particularly dishonorable, even evil. To do their jobs honestly and honorably, they would quietly refuse to enforce those laws. Their supervisors and administrators, usually understanding of the three factors, would say nothing and do nothing.
Because the mere possession of magazines and AR-15-like weapons is not a crime if they are registered, police officers have no probable cause to investigate people for mere possession of such things. How can any officer, by merely looking, tell if a magazine holds 10 or 11 rounds? How can they tell if a magazine or a rifle have been registered? To be forced to tear apart magazines and to examine and investigate every rifle they see exceeds an officer’s powers and reduces them to corrupt, thuggish operatives of a police state demanding to see anyone’s papers at whim. Were this lawful, were this truly a significant law enforcement priority, why not simply station State Troopers at every shooting range as a gatekeeper? Of course, actual criminals tend not to frequent shooting ranges, but one has to have priorities.
If in the course of their normal duties they find themselves in a situation where they have genuine–not manufactured–probable cause to investigate further, they might need to enforce those particular laws, particularly if they’re dealing with real criminals rather than honest citizens criminalized by a corrupt legislature, but other than that, professionals would leave it alone. There are far more pressing issues that the public will support and recognize as clearly upholding the social contract.
And this will work–it does every day–if the police are left to their own devices. But as the Examiner noted, that may not be the case. This is an issue about which the police are very much aware, and honest officers worried. Recently, a woman whose husband received a threatening letter called the State Police and spoke with Lt. J. Paul Vance, who is apparently the head of public information for the State Police. Take this link to hear her recording of their conversation.
Lt. J. Paul Vance
While the woman is somewhat naïve regarding these issues, she is asking valid questions, particularly, if ordered to go to the homes of honest citizens and seize their firearms and accessories, will the State Police do it? Will they put themselves and the citizens they serve in deadly danger to enforce unconstitutional laws? Will they put honest citizens in situations where officers will feel compelled to kill them?
As the call goes on, Lt. Vance becomes upset and defensive, very reluctant to admit that the police are even considering such things, saying, among other things:
“I don’t want to talk about the Constitution at all–at all.”
“It sounds like you’re anti-American and anti-law.”
“I’m the master.”
He repeatedly tells her to speak with her attorney and says he would never come to her home, because it’s not his job (of course not; he’s an administrator). She corrects him, noting that lower ranking officers would do it, but he wants to avoid admitting that, and pretends that the police are automatons with no control over which laws to enforce. He also pretends not to understand that police officers coming to the homes of the law abiding to seize their weapons are in any unusual danger, nor will he admit that their actions would put citizens in danger. He knows better; any competent police officer knows better.
Anyone listening to Lt. Vance should come away with the understanding that the State Police certainly will send SWAT teams to the homes of citizens, and will, if they deem it necessary, kill them over the number of rounds their magazines are capable of holding and the appearance of their rifles. They will kill people to please blood-thirsty politicians.
Some local agencies–particularly sheriff’s departments, because sheriffs are elected–will refuse to participate, but many will. Police officers on the coasts are different than those in flyover country. They are generally more anti-gun. The State Police absolutely will, and few, if any, will have any qualms about it. In law enforcement circles, state police officers are known to be rigid and inflexible. Because they generally have no ties to a particular community, many quickly develop an “us-against-them” mentality. Their training and rank structure and daily relationships also tend to condition them to think themselves superior to local officers, and to be much more militaristic than other law enforcement agencies.
Have no doubt. If Connecticut politicians decide to punish the peasants, the State Police SWAT teams will raid the homes of the innocent. People will die. The social contract will be irretrievably broken, and the police–and politicians–will be seen as, and treated as, the enemies of Americans. They will have earned it.
If Connecticut’s legislators have any common sense, any honor, any decency, they will, at the very least, leave this alone and let this ultimately be decided by the courts. If they’re actually smart, they’ll repeal these unconstitutional laws before lives are lost.
Any bets on which path they’ll take?
My fellow American’s, when these events elucidated above take place, it will be a turning point in America’s history unlike anything experienced in the past, and it will escalate from there into total chaos. People on both sides of this issue have drawn a line in the sand, and when a family like the one described is annihilated retribution is sure to come. Picture in your mind this scenario; it’s 2 am and three vans stop in front of the Sherriff’s house, the side doors slide open and three fifty caliber machine guns roar through three thousand rounds of ammo, nearly cutting the house in half, then speed away. The neighborhood is in a panic and the National Guard are called in to assist local law enforcement. Every house for five blocks is invaded the next day, families are terrorized, and the Governor declares a lock down on the city. Prudence would dictate that both sides of this issue would come together to work out a truce, but prudence was murdered that faithful night, and from then on we are once again in a civil war. Do not for one minute, think that we law abiding gun owners will surrender our weapons. It’s only safe to take our weapons when we are laying in the street dead, because we do not value life more than the freedom to protect ourselves and our family’s. Politician's beware, you are starting something that will bite you in the ass.

I am not talking about the clown puppets in Washington D.C. and their minions in the Federal Government, but the true Government of the United States, the Invisible Government that appoints presidents, buys senators and congressmen, controls the system of public education, owns most of the mainstream press, the Federal Banks, the IRS and all federal agencies such as the CIA, NSA, FEMA, DHS, TSA and the rest of the alphabet soup organizations created for the sole purpose of spying on, harassing, repressing and terrorizing the American people.
The Invisible Government of the United States is not a government of the people, by the people, for the people, but a government of the banksters, by the oil magnates, for the transnational corporations.
We the People cannot wait any longer. It is time to overthrow the Invisible Government of the U.S.
A New Declaration of Independence
When in the Course of Human Events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the Earth the separate and equal sovereignty to which the Laws of Nature entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. Cardinals among these are Life, Liberty, Property and the weapons to defend those rights.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it by any means necessary, and to institute a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience has shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evidences a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new safeguards for their future security.
Such has been the patient sufferance of the American people; and such is now the necessity that constrains them to alter their present System of Government. All civil venues of recourse to change the current state of things have been closed to the American people. So, it is time to overthrow the Invisible Government of the United States.
By slow, gradual infiltration, the Invisible Government of the United States has become a veritable imperium in imperio — a government within the government. A government that has never been elected by the votes of the American people. A government that is fully controlled by oil magnates, international bankers and CEOs of transnational corporations ensconced at the Council on Foreign Relations and its parasite organizations in the U.S. and abroad, such as the UN, the Trilateral Commission, the Skull & Bones “fraternity” of Yale University, the Bohemian Grove, the Bilderberg Group, the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and others.
Trough their puppets in the U.S. Government, the conspirators of the Invisible Government have been working hard to eliminate the sovereignty of the U.S. and the rest of the countries in this planet and fuse them into a world government under their control. They have opened the southern border to an invasion of illegal aliens and are taking steps to integrate the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a North American Union as a first step to fusing all countries in the hemisphere into an American Union. They encouraged transnational corporations to change well-paid jobs at home into low-paid, quasi-slave jobs abroad. They have destroyed America’s heavy industry. They have systematically poisoned the air we breath, the water we drink and the food we eat. They have turned government schools (also called “public schools”) into centers for brainwashing and political indoctrination. They have been sending our sons and daughters to remote parts of the planet to fight unnecessary wars that only benefit the spurious interests of global bankers and international corporations. They are gradually turning the American Republic into a communo-fascist totalitarian police state.
The history of the present Invisible Government is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Totalitarian Tyranny over the American people — a Totalitarian Tyranny they euphemistically call the New World Order.
But the New World Order is not new and will bring constant chaos rather than order — it is already bringing chaos. It is a return to the servitude of medieval times, where just two social classes existed: the masters living in opulence, comprising the 1% of the population, and the serfs, the 99%, living in the most abject economic and moral misery and with no rights whatsoever.
The Invisible Government has refused to Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. It is time for the American people to abolish this aberrant creation called the Invisible Government of the United States, try the criminals for their treasonous acts and send to prison the ones found guilty. It is time for the American people to restore the Constitution and elect new leaders who respect and protect it from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
How Can We Overthrow the Illegitimate Invisible Government of the United States?
For more than a century, the CFR conspirators have been waging a psychological war of attrition against the American people. The main type of weapon used in this PsyWar is the meme. Memes are powerful ideas that take control over your mind. While some of them are good, some of them are malignant.
The U.S. military has its bacteriological warfare labs, like the one in Fort Detrick, Maryland, fully devoted to the production of lethal viruses. In the same fashion, the conspirators have their psychological warfare labs, like the Tavistock Institute, the Stanford Research Institute, the RAND Corporation, the Hudson Institute and others, where they create mind viruses in the form of malignant memes.
Therefore, if memes act like viruses, and the two main ways to avoid being contaminated by viruses are immunization and isolation, these prophylactic measures could be applied to memes as well. The best vaccination against malignant memes is to read, watch and listen critically. If you feel yourself agreeing hundred percent with everything a talk radio host, journalist or author says or writes, that is a sure symptom that you have been contaminated by a mind virus.
The other proven and effective way to avoid contagion is isolation. Viruses are usually transmitted by carriers called vectors. The main vectors for the transmission of the malignant memes created in the conspirators’ think tanks are schools —particularly government schools, the ones disingenuously called “public schools—, churches, political parties and the mainstream media.
Like ninja warriors, the main weapon used by the conspirators has been their invisibility. Therefore, in order to win this battle of the mind we need to become shadow warriors ourselves by becoming invisible to our enemies. Given the ability of the conspirators to infiltrate large organizations, the best defensive tactic is to create a multitude of small cells they cannot penetrate.
This type of small cell already exists: it is called your family, and its headquarters is your home. This is the only organization the conspirators cannot infiltrate. They know it, and this explains their efforts to destroy the family as a social unit.
In the case of education, the only sure way to avoid contagion is by not sending your children to government schools. Given the fact, however, that even private schools can be, and actually most of them are, contaminated, the only true solution is home schooling. But even the most drastic measure, no schooling at all, is much better that sending your children to public schools.
In relation to churches, if you discover that your pastor or priest has become an agent for big government disinformation, stop going to church and worship at home. Even better, create a small church at home and invite a few friends and neighbors to join you by attending your religious services.
Finally, you must be aware that the two main political parties have been infiltrated and currently are under the full control of the CFR conspirators. Creating a new party or organization would not help, because eventually the conspirators would manage to infiltrate it the way they infiltrated the Tea Party.
Even the best and well-intentioned candidates running for the Republican or Democratic Party are not good, because, if elected, they will be neutralized by the party’s machinery or co-opted by the conspirators. Moreover, by giving your vote to a Republican or Democratic candidate you are helping to legitimize a corrupt, illegitimate organization. Consequently, the best solution is to create an organization they can’t penetrate. It is called the “no party at all.” Become an independent, and give your vote only to independent candidates. If you cant’ find any candidate that can deserve your vote, run for office yourself.
The best way to fight a mind war is by refusing to let the enemy’s memes get control of your mind. How one can do that? As I have shown above, actually it is very simple and anybody can do it. The only requirement is the will to live as free men.
We are running out of time. We must overthrow the invisible government right away or be prepared to become the obedient serfs of the New World Order.
The ball is now in our court. Either we hit it back and refuse to become the conspirators’ serfs, or lower our heads and accept the yoke, or perhaps our death.
The mad CFR sociopaths in the Invisible Government are finally seeing their most cherished dream coming closer to become a reality: a big war with Russia.Unfortunately, we, not they, are the ones who most likely will pay for their madness.
On the other hand, perhaps we deserve it, for having allowed this nasty bunch of globalist anti-American traitors steal our government and our freedoms. Ultimately, people have the governments they deserve.

In his 1976 book The Selfish Gene (2 ed.), (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1989). p. 192, British author Richard Dawkins introduced the concept of “meme” (pronounced like “gene”) in his 1976 book The Selfish Gene (2 ed.). (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1989). p. 192. According to Dawkins, ideas propagate the same way as viruses do. Consequently, memes are sort of viruses of the mind, which propagate a highly contagious disease called brainwashing.
Moreover, as Dawkins pointed out, memes do not need to be true to be powerful. Examples of these type of malignant memes —not provided by Dawkins, who is a “progressive” liberal believer in Darwinism— are Nazism, Communism, Darwinism and global warming.

On one level, the struggle over the Ukraine is a deadly US/EU/Russian game of territory, involving governments, intelligence agencies, corporations, and banks.
But at a higher level, as usual, sit the elite Globalist players. And their motives are different. They see every conflict as an opportunity to negotiate the aftermath.
And that negotiation produces a codified structure of cooperation between the enemies that is larger than the previous structure.
For example, there were banks and corporations (Standard Oil, ITT, IBM, etc.) who were aiding both sides in WW2. And in the aftermath, a much larger market for goods (Europe-US) was created.
The US government, in its European rebuilding efforts, made sure of that.
Post WW2, Europe itself started on the road toward creating the current European Union, which is a vast bureaucracy that sits over the entire continent.
This is the Globalist principle: instigate conflicts, in order to build larger cooperative structures in the aftermath. And control those cooperative structures.
That way, you put more people, land, resources, and labor under the umbrella.
There is only one exception. If either of the conflicting parties, in the aftermath, refuses to build those cooperative bridges, the Globalist scheme doesn’t work.
So, vis-a-vis the Ukraine conflict, if Russia or the US, in the aftermath, says no to building new cooperative structures (either out in the open, or behind closed doors), that “defector” is now a Globalist target for further chaos and destabilization.
Until it relents and joins the Club.
Above the saber rattling and angry accusations, and characterizations of “a new Cold War,” Ukraine is a pawn in the Globalist game of bringing Russian and US power players into closer accord—kicking and screaming, if necessary.
In accord, but not in a good way. In a Globalist way.
Because the Globalist agenda is a planet of One Nation, where all borders are ultimately erased, and the ruling class of money and corporate power and political torque is enthroned.
This program is neither Left nor Right. It hides behind exacerbated conflict between Left and Right.
It engenders a reality in which Left vs. Right appears to be the only political game in town.
But it isn’t the only game.
You could call the Globalist agenda socialism, Communism, fascism, corporatism, liberal, conservative, and other names. And each one of those names would contain a kernel of truth. But in fact, Globalism is simply Control. From above. Period.
Yes, there must be certain issues on which the Left and Right disagree. There must be differences. And these issues must be hot. Hot enough to rally supporters who scream at each other across the barricades.
Because that is the kind of distraction Globalism needs to do its methodical work in secret.
If Ukraine follows the blueprint, at the end of the conflict, the US and Russia will be seething at each other. And then…a mediating figure will appear, perhaps from the Rockefeller camp.
And in a private meeting, he will say, “Boys, cool down. We have a plan. And in this plan, everybody wins. You’ll all go home with something. Look. Look at this. And this. And this.”
And then the new structure of cooperation will be larger than the previous structure.
And it will look good.
But the motive behind it will be: the taking of yet another step in the direction of welding together Planet Earth in one vast management system.
At the top of which sit the rulers.
As David Rockefeller wrote in his 2003 Memoirs:
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

As I travel the road of life, I find it very interesting how men who lived so long ago and experienced so much of life were able to see what was coming in the future, not to mention what they saw in their own day. Aristotle could not have hit the nail on the head any closer than this:
“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.”
I remember looking at a book once that was titled “What Men Have Learned from History.” As I opened the 100-page book, I found that the pages were all blank. The point was well made. Men do not learn from history. Unfortunately, society has proven this to be the case over and over again. In America today you can see the clear digression of society. What was once evil in our eyes some now call good. The high standards of virtue and morality that were once considered to be the foundation of our families are now laughed at and called “old fashioned” and “outdated.”
We now live in a nation where “tolerance” has become some sort of virtue, and “intolerance” for the things that go against God’s Word is called “hate.” The truth is God is love (1 John 4:8), and God gave His Law because He loves. Yet, America has now become so wise in her own eyes that its people have become fools (Romans 1:22).
Those who fought, bled, and died for our country to establish our Constitution, those who sacrificed to make us free were looked upon as heroes. Now, those who stick to the Constitution and fight to make sure it is adhered to are demonized, criticized by the state-run media and labeled “intolerant haters.”
We now live in a country where “evangelical Christians” are labeled by our own military as No. 1 on the list of terrorists; when if it were not for the “evangelical Christians” found in the “Black-Robed Regiment” who fought to give us this country, we would not have a nation to label anyone anything.
Then there are the do-nothings who give way to apathy. They say, “This is America, it will never happen here!” – as they look at the blank pages in the book of history once again and ignore all the signs of the times that clearly point out tyranny in our government, lawlessness and an attack against all that is good.
What has happened, America? Why have we given over to this change from the founding values of our great nation to the lawlessness we see today? The Bible clearly says in Proverbs 24:21, “… meddle not with them that are given to change.” So why are we changing?
America for the most part has cowered shamefully and refused to lawfully fight against evils.
It was Abraham Lincoln who said, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
Are we allowing our nation to be destroyed? Yes. Are we seeing judgment turned backwards? Yes. But the real question is, are YOU willing to stand up and do something about it? ________ (Your answer here). That remains to be seen.
It’s time for Americans to rise up, learn from the past, and say enough is enough.
Maybe we all could use a little lesson from those who are labeled “old and confused.”
One evening, a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.
The Grandma replied, "Well, let me think a minute. I was born before television, penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees and the pill. There was no radar, credit cards, laser beams or ballpoint pens.
Man had not invented panty hose, air conditioners, dishwashers or clothes dryers, and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air, and man hadn't yet walked on the moon.
Your grandfather and I got married first – and then lived together. Every family had a father and a mother. Until I was 25, I called every man older than I, 'Sir.' We were before gay rights, computer dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy. Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong, and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege. We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent. Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins. Draft dodgers were people who closed their front doors when the evening breeze started. Timesharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends – not purchasing condominiums.
We never heard of FM radios. And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey. If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan’ on it, it was junk. The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam. Pizza Hut, McDonalds, and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had five and 10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for five and 10 cents. Ice cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel. And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and two postcards. You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
In my day, ‘grass' was mowed, 'coke' was a cold drink, 'pot' was something your mother cooked in, and 'rock music' was your grandmother's lullaby. 'Aids' were helpers in the Principal's office, 'chip' meant a piece of wood, 'hardware' was found in a hardware store, and 'software' wasn't even a word. We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us 'old and confused' and say there is a generation gap.”

As I see it, if Tolerance and Apathy are the last stage, and I do believe it is, that means we are in big trouble; as in the ship’s sinking and we have no life boats. The International Investment Banking Cartel and their hundreds of thousands of elite minions have done a real number on us while we were sleeping. They stole our intellect, our courage, our will to propagate, and most all of the attributes needed to retain our freedom from tyrannical governance. I agree we’re in deep dodo, but, I cannot justify giving up till the last drop of blood is gone. It matters not if I lose all my friends because they are afraid to join the battle, and take offense when I ask them to participate. It matters not when I make grammatical blunders and expose my ignorance and it matters not when the NSA puts me on a watch list. I would be insulted if they did not. What does matter is, I stood up and fought back. It may cost me my life and or all I have accumulated in a lifetime of labor, but I cannot stand by and do nothing while my family and countrymen are being raped, murdered, imprisoned, bankrupted, and tortured. If you can justify not being involved in enraging by educating people, there are still things you could do, like do not participate in banking. But you must not sit back and do nothing. You have over three hundred million people depending on you, to fight for freedom. If you do nothing but pass this article link on to your contact list, you have done more than most so called American’s. If you are a Christian, there is nothing on earth or in Heaven that can steal your soul. To die in the act of fighting for God’s country is a joy unspeakable. Fear not!

Ladies and gentlemen WE HAVE A PROBLEM! Mr. Ewart reports that some so called American’s are complaining that he is too tough, strident and caustic in his articles, to which I say too damned bad. If his complainers had any guts they would wash their own mouth out with soap, and if they had any brains they would apologize to him, and forward his work to everyone they know. America needs a hundred thousand more authors who are even more tough, strident and caustic, to shame those who have no courage or common sense. They should be kissing his ass instead of complaining.
By Ron Ewart
Ladies and gentlemen. We have received some complaints recently that we are being too tough, strident and caustic in our articles. We submit that we aren't being tough enough. The fact is, if we are not stirring your blood, we aren't doing our job. If Americans are so timid and afraid of government that they don't want to hear the truth and from that truth, challenge the government, at any level, then America has absolutely no chance of saving itself ….. from itself. Fear paralyzes and renders the fearful impotent. Fear is the worst enslaver of all. If you fear the government, local, state, or federal, then we strongly suggest you don't read our articles. From our perspective the government, at all levels, has become arrogant, abusive and tyrannical and is fair game, especially to those of us with courage, a free mind and an indomitable spirit.
"The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool." -Stephen King, author
"Power, without honor or trust, is tyranny." -Ron Ewart, national author and speaker
The other night we watched the Crimson Tide movie again with Gene Hackman as Captain Ramsey and Denzel Washington as Executive Officer (XO) Hunter, commanding a nuclear submarine, the Alabama. The Alabama is sent on a mission to destroy a Russian naval and missile base that had been taken over by Russian rebels who were threatening to fire nuclear missiles at the U. S. if the rebel's demands weren't met by the Russian Government. The Alabama received an order from central command to fire their nuclear missiles at the Russian naval base, but while submerged and preparing to launch, it came under attack by a rogue Russian submarine. During the attack a message came in from central command but was cut off mid message. The Alabama ultimately destroyed the Russian submarine, but in the process of the fierce battle, it lost its radio and thus could not confirm the content of the second message.
The crux of the movie was about the dispute between Captain Ramsey and XO Hunter over the decision to fire nuclear missiles and the potential dire consequences, without knowing what was in the second message. The Captain was determined to fire, but the XO was determined to not fire until the 2nd message was received in full. In the end, the radio was fixed, the message came in and central command had rescinded the order to fire the Alabama's nuclear missiles. The Captain was wrong and the XO was proved right, thankfully.
But this time as we watched the movie, it was different somehow. We were suddenly struck by the parallels between the operation of a nuclear submarine and the operation of a Constitutional Republic. A nuclear submarine has virtually more destructive firepower than all the weapons fired in World War II. With 24 nuclear tipped missiles, each having at least 10 nuclear devices in them, a nuclear submarine can rain Hell fire down on targets that will totally obliterate them, along with tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousand lives. That is just one nuclear submarine. The United States has many nuclear submarines.
The United States of America, under the command of the President, controls the firepower of the combined army, navy, air force, marines and coast guard. No nation on earth has this much power in the hands of one man that can pull the "trigger" to save the nation, or pull the "trigger" on an insane whim. The captain of a nuclear submarine and the President of the United States have the same exact awesome responsibility and it is only different in the degree of how much firepower each can unleash. The captain answers to the President. But the President answers to …..?
In theory, a nuclear submarine operates to preserve Democracy, not to practice it. In contrast, and as designed, a Constitutional Republic operates to preserve a Democracy as well, but with a different set of less-rigid instructions. The nuclear submarine operates under the intransigent and fixed Rules of Navy Regulations and a chain of command from which there can be no deviation without serious consequences for the offender. A Constitutional Republic operates under the Supreme Law of the Land, the U. S. Constitution, and the laws that are passed in concert with the Supreme Law by a representative government. Consequences to any violators of the Supreme Law are left up to the people, that is if the people care to hold the violators to account.
On a nuclear submarine, or any other American Navy vessel, the captain is the supreme leader and the supreme law, subject to the Rules of Navy Regulations. In a nuclear submarine, "boys are trained to do a terrible and unthinkable thing, and if that ever occurs the only reassurance they will have that they are doing the right thing will derive from their unqualified belief in the unified chain of command", (from the movie) as delineated in the Rules of Navy Regulations. Each member of the boat's crew (a submarine is a boat, a surface vessel is a ship) must have an undying belief in the capability of the captain to fulfill the duties for which he is charged, in the hopes that in the performance of those duties he will not needlessly sacrifice the crew, or violate the Rules of Navy Regulations. That strong belief finds its foundation in the words immortalized by General Douglas McArthur ….. duty, honor, country.
Exhaustive training hones the captain and the crew to act as one, within the capabilities of the boat, in the fulfillment of the captain's duties. The human weaknesses associated with power and ambition and the uncontrolled emotions of irrationality, anger, or overt compassion can cloud the captain's ability to fulfill those duties and so the crew is taking that risk when sailing with any captain. Nevertheless, the crew can in no way affect, alter, or modify the captain's decisions, for that would be mutiny. The captain has absolute power on the boat and his words and deeds cannot be questioned, unless he is in violation of the Rules of Navy Regulations, which did occur in the Crimson Tide movie. The fact is, it is impossible to effectively prosecute a war by a committee, governed by Robert's Rules of Order, if the goal is to win the war.
So let's analyze the contrast between a submarine crew and the American citizen. Under the U. S. Constitution, the American citizen has considerably more latitude to alter or modify the government of a Constitutional Republic than a ship's crewmember has on any water-born vessel, where the captain has absolute power. In fact, in a Constitutional Republic, the power of the government is derived from the power of the governed, if we are to believe the inviolate words of those that founded this great nation.
In a Constitutional Republic, Americans are supposed to be taught to have trust in their government to do what is necessary and right under the rules of the Supreme Law of the Land, in the direct interest of the preservation of individual liberty and in the direct interest of the preservation of the sovereignty of the nation as a whole. Americans will only have that reassurance that the government is doing the right thing, if they have the unqualified belief and trust that the government will act to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution. Each American must have an undying belief in the capability of the government to fulfill the duties for which government has been charged, in the hopes that those duties will not needlessly sacrifice any one individual, or group of Americans, or will dismantle the foundation of freedom. That strong belief finds its foundation in the meaning of the word, "trust."
If the people do not trust their government to preserve individual liberty, be honest and forthright with the people and be true to their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, if they cannot trust their government to abide by the rule of law, then the entire system breaks down and we become a nation of the lawless under a lawless government. That condition is a recipe for the declaration of martial law and the path to fascism, or a dictatorship.
When the president of the United States, members of Congress, or any chief executive or members of a legislative, city, county, or state body, willfully lie to the American people to deceive them for political purposes, or ulterior motives, there can be no trust in government, or the rule of law and the system is on its way to breaking down. When law becomes so complex, complicated and undecipherable such that there is no way for the people to reasonably comply with the law, the system HAS broken down. In these trying times of a divided nation over two radically opposing ideologies, America finds itself at the merging of these two conditions. Today, government does lie on purpose for political purposes and ulterior motives to deceive the people, government has become a power unto itself where it does not respect the rule of law, it only respects its rule by fear and intimidation of the people, and finally, the laws have become so complex, complicated and undecipherable that no normal, reasonable and prudent person can comply with them, making virtually every American a lawbreaker in one form or another.
Lying by one person for whatever reason is deceit. Lying by government on purpose for ulterior motives or to increase its power over the masses is racketeering, corruption and quite possibly fascism. As Stephen King stated, "the trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool." If the people are so innocent, naive and uninformed, then they have no defense against a lying and corrupt government, nor do they have any redress against unconstitutional or complicated laws for which there is no way to comply.
But the fact is ladies and gentlemen, we cannot with these words change the mindset of a nation who does not care who leads them, or are collectively oblivious to their leader's existence, or the rules under which they lead. We cannot make people cognizant of reality or convince them that their "innocence and ignorance is the liar's (government) most useful tool." We cannot awaken a nation that does not want to be awakened, or a nation that is perfectly comfortable with its ignorance, apathy and mindless slumber.
You cannot by force or other means, convince an alcoholic to mend his ways if the alcoholic does not fervently want to mend his ways. And thus it stands that one person or a thousand voices cannot by force or other means, convince a nation that it lies on the path to ruin, until that nation as a whole gains the collective mindset that it wants to detour from that path. Even if ten thousand voices shouted freedom from the rooftops, as they are now doing all over America in print, on the Internet and on the air, urging the people to see the "light", it still will not be enough if a high percentage of the masses refuse to be awakened. As just one author with a limited audience, we might as well stand on the top of a mountain and blow into the east wind for all the impact we are having.
Whether a sea ship captain, or the president of the United States, the ability to govern effectively rests solely on the trust of the people over which each must command. Without that trust, without honor in the leaders and in the people, government breaks down and when government breaks down due to lack of trust and honor, so order must breakdown as well. This is what we see in Syria, the Ukraine, the Sudan and Venezuela, or any other country where trust in the government has evaporated. When trust and order break down, what takes its place is disorder, mayhem, brutality, carnage, disease and death. This is the not too distant future of America if it continues down the path it now treads.
The question remains, will that nation once conceived in liberty, gain the necessary collective mindset in time before all trust and honor are gone and disorder, mayhem, brutality, carnage, disease and death sets in, because the liars (government) used the people's innocence and ignorance to enslave them.
But then, as a humble writer with a limited audience, there is no way we can predict what the future holds. The outcome depends solely on whether enough Americans will awaken from their innocence, ignorance, apathy and mindless slumber ….. in time. All we can do is provide truthful information and sound the alarm and we are doing so with our weekly articles and on our two powerful websites HERE and HERE. But is anyone listening? If responses to our articles are any indication, it would appear not.

I am writing here of military personnel, and in particular, American military personnel. There is a good reason for this discourse, because it is a proven fact that people kill people for reasons they do not always understand or even care about, and if one is a God fearing person, or just a compassionate person, they should.
The German soldiers who were dressed in Polish uniforms, and instructed to kill their fellow Germans in the second world war, may or may not have, been given instructions to follow those orders because it was imperative to conquer Poland for the protection of the homeland, and to get the peoples support for Nation Building. Who Knows! I don’t pretend to know all there is to know about this event, and I’m using it to open the readers mind to something important in today’s political climate. Events like this do happen, (911 and the Bush administration) (Sandy Hook) (and many others) and I find it hard to swallow if we are going to claim we are compassionate human beings.
There are many so called compassionate Americans who would nuke Russia at the drop of hat, and there are also many so called compassionate Americans who would make a fortune if certain people would drop one on America so we could drop many on China, Russia, or various nations in the Middle East.
Getting rich at the expense of human lives being lost is not compassionate, and if the reader believes our government is always correct in their decisions to kill other people, then I fear for your soul, because it is surely not compassionate, or very smart, and you are close to being one of those soldiers who kill on command.
So what is a low ranking new soldier supposed to do? How about a seasoned soldier of high rank?
Let’s consider that the reason one is a soldier is to protect his country at all cost, which includes his/her life, and orders are orders, which must be followed without question. Then what? Is the chain of command so infallible they never make mistakes? I hardly think so, and we as compassionate human beings must be allowed to follow our conscience if we are to avoid being used by people with no conscience. And we cannot do that and remain ignorant. Don’t forget, our so called President is the Commander in Chief of our military, and the one who gave himself the power to kill us, in spite of having no available information on his past.
AND THAT, DEAR READER IS THE REAL REASON FOR THIS DISCOURSE.
Every human being must accept the responsibility to become informed on the methods being used by the powers that be. Otherwise we will be trapped into committing atrocities we will not be able to live with, like killing people for no good reason. Only self-defense or protection of family, and in some cases property, can justify killing a person.
Even if you just vote a tyrant into a position of power over other people, you are still responsible for their actions, because you could have researched his/her past to see what kind of person they were, (Except for OBUMA) or you could have demanded some kind of acceptable proof of their abilities and purpose.
We cannot go through life without accepting responsibility for our leaders, and if we continue doing so, we are headed for destruction. Look around, and see for yourself, our government has turned into a monster, hell bent on destroying our life with their control over every item we need for survival.
The privatization of all natural resources will subject us to an absolutely miserable life style, with no means of recourse. Is the pleasure of being uninformed worth living in a world of total subjection? Are we so ignorant we will accept tyranny, just so we can avoid a little reading? Do we want to be so desperate we will kill our neighbor for a loaf of bread? Do we give a tyrannical government our support just so we can have an excuse to sit on our ass and watch TV instead of learning how and what they are doing behind our backs; just because they say they represent America? Just by being alive we should have enough sense to see they are stealing our future, as well as our present way of life.
So, what are our options?
There are over 1,600 articles on my two sites alone http://anationbeguiled.com and http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com , plus the internet is running over with Patriot sites, for now! These articles have been chosen because they contribute to understanding what is going on in America and the world that contributes to the destruction of freedom and Constitutional Governance. And, the number one reason these things are happening is the appalling ignorance and lack of interest in our citizens. Folks, you simply cannot remain uninformed and free. It’s either knowledge and freedom, or ignorance and no freedom!
May I humbly suggest you begin a reading program of as many dissident authors as you can find, and empty your mind of all loyalty to any of the existing political parties in America. You cannot stand in the river and get dry. We must create an informed society on the methods the International Investment Banking Cartel is using to subjugate the entire planet we live and depend on. Stop voting and start learning why. Information is to your mind, like Viagra is to your?
If you want it to work right you have to give it some nourishment.
Every minute you watch television is like an open wound bleeding your life away.
It’s true that ignorant people cannot cure a big problem, and it’s also true that an informed society can cure any problem. The people who formed our government never intended it to be like it has become, and the way it failed is because the people refused to do their part. Your part Mr. and Mrs. America is to learn why adhering to a particular set of principles is the only way we can deal with an ever expanding group of politicians who act as if they can do anything with our country they find profitable. There are rules in every society; otherwise we would be an anarchic pot of hobo soup, willing to try anything that tickles our fancy. A Democracy simply means 51% of the people can demand how the 49% live, and if you are stupid enough to want that, let me be the first to hold and protect your money. Let me be the first to keep your wife warm on cold nights while you are away. The majority is a non elected tyrant!
Laws must be made in conformance with an existing set of principles, or we have no future security in anything. What ever sounds good at the moment is no substitute for intelligent problem solving. Or Nation Building, which by the way, we were not intended to be. The founders saw the advantage in having some diversity in governance and provided it by setting up the States as limited but free to adjust to particular circumstances, and the federal Government confined to only those explicit areas elucidated in the Constitution, and further confined by the Bill of Rights which is about to die on the vine of tyranny.
Getting back to the soldiers, and their commanders demanding absolute obedience regardless of sane treatment of the people. How will we deal with a soldier who has been instructed to kill us for some perceived wrong we may or may not have done. They are not supposed to be law-men anyway. That’s yet another protection we have lost, due to diversity in governance.
There is also the nationwide problem of local police officers becoming absolute brutes and getting away with it, to the point of publically bragging about their freedom to do what ever they liked, with no fear of retribution. As a matter of fact they can now get paid leave for brutalizing some citizen, and they openly confess it’s how they get extra paid time off. Go home with pay and behave for a week until this cools down, is how they are admonished. This is AMERICA???!
Are you aware that the old practice of extortion has arisen, and police officers are demanding money if you want to remain healthy and in business? If the thugs try it they are murdered with impunity, as it’s now the officers domain.
Any one who is still convinced that America is the land of the free and the home of the brave is mentally retarded. Go to http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com and read Mr. Whiteheads article, Free Speech RIP A Relic of the American Past!
How much will you take America, before you stand up and fight back?
