The morning of the FOMC announcement on Wednesday (Oct 28) gold was up $14 overnight, close to $1080 and the cartel’s dreaded 200 day moving average. The “premise” was that the market was expecting another rate hike deferral.
I friend called me that morning and I told him to not get excited because when the FOMC policy decision hits the tape, they will annihilate gold and push the S&P 500 up toward 2100. I was only 10 pts off on the S&P call, as the S&P 500 closed at 2090, up an absurd 24 points. Gold was taken to the cleaners:
What’s incredible is not one mainstream media analyst or reporter questions this market action. If the premise behind the gold sell-off was a “hawkish” FOMC statement and the threat of a rate hike in December (yawn), then the exact same premise should have cause a big sell-off in stocks. Since when does the threat of tighter monetary policy not hit the stock market?
Just to recount the play-by-play in gold, the moment the FOMC announcement hit the tape, the Comex computer system was bombarded with sell orders. At this point in the trading day, the ONLY gold/silver market open is the Comex computer Globex system. In the first 30 minutes 29.6k contracts were unloaded – 2.6 million paper ounces. In the entire hour after the announcement 50.5k contracts were unloaded – 5.1 million ounces. Note that the Comex is showing around 200k ounces to be available for delivery.
The blatant, unfettered manipulation and intervention in the gold and silver market is sponsored by the Fed and the U.S. Treasury, executed by the big bullion banks and fully endorsed by the CFTC.
Dan Norcini vomited up a theory that the hit on Wednesday was a product of long side (hedge fund) liquidation. That view proved to be utter scatological regurgitation from an analyst who’s analysis and views have gone completely off the rails. As it turns out, open interest increased by over 4,000 contracts on Wednesday. So much for that “long liquidation” idiocy.
The manipulation of the gold and silver market is a nothing but a product of complete systemic corruption. The only way that the Fed and the politicians can claim that the economy is “fine” and QE “worked” is to make sure that the one piece of obvious evidence which would say otherwise is kept highly restrained.
I’ve told colleagues for years that the only way the elitists will let the Comex default, causing gold and silver to launch in price toward Pluto, is when they know they can no longer support their fraud.
If I’m wrong, how else to do you explain the fact that the front-running candidate to be the next President of the United States is openly a criminal and traitor who should be devoting her entire resource base toward defending herself from being throw in jail forever? This person, by the way, issues a statement today giving the U.S. economy an “A.”
On a positive note, I do believe that this country is in its 9th inning and there will be no extra innings in this game. Gold and silver do appear to be back in an uptrend, with a lot of pressure from the part of the world that demands physical delivery.

Walter Burien is the leading expert on Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs). Beginning in 1990, Walter began documenting how governments manipulate their books to hide public money, but reveal part of what they do in CAFRs. I discovered Walter’s work in 2012, read CAFRs for the state of California, the City of Los Angeles, and Los Angeles County, and verified his information as correct. I document those CAFRs’ information here, along with the adventure of my California Assemblyperson and State Senator’s obfuscations and eventual official statements of, “No comment” when asked to verify what I found in the state CAFR. My 23-minute interview to explain my findings is the last video of this article. I found similar fraud in San Jose’s CAFR in 2015.
The bottom-line is that we live in the Orwellian economy of a debt-based “money” system, while government lords over trillions of our captured dollars with .01% oligarchs hiding ~$30 trillion in tax havens (that’s about 20-30 times the total to end all poverty on Earth forever). A leading CAFR example is California’s ~14,000 various government entities’ CAFRs have a sampled-data total estimate of $8 trillion in surplus taxpayer assets ($650,000 non-disclosed assets per household). CAFR so-called “retirement funds” currently deliver net returns of about one percent on good years, and negative returns on bad years (here, here).
Better read the above paragraph twice to feel our real economic condition exposed through official CAFRs.
I consider Walter an American hero for intellectual integrity and moral courage to report CAFR data since 1990. He has suffered tremendous repercussions from .01% criminal financial interests he exposes. When true accounting is done, we all owe Walter trillions worth of gratitude.
Walter responded to my article, ‘Developed’ nations now $50 TRILLION in debt; literally, figuratively bankrupt for infrastructure, public services with the following brilliant 400 words:
“Please, please, please understand the following:
If you were married to a Super Model who was gorgeous, and everyone kept telling you she was fat and ugly, after a while would you doubt yourself to think that she is fat and ugly?
Per that debt, the following three points apply:
1. Enron promoted their profit and hid their debt. Government does the exact opposite: they promote debt and hide profit.
2. With the changes in government accounting over the last 15 years, now they project out “liabilities” 35 years cross-matched with 1 year of income. If Bill Gates, you, or I did the same, we all would look like we are on death’s financial door.
3. Government back during the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s had so much cash coming in the door they did not know what to do with it all. So, the scheme went into effect of promoting debt, and then funding that debt with their own cash: turning cash into debt as an investment for them, and as a “parking zone” for that cash. Well, today if you start cross-matching that local and federal government debt with the investor of that debt, after connecting the dots, you will find that 65% + of that debt is “self-funded” or cross-matched with other local or federal investment funds. You may have the county funding the city debt, and the same city funding the county debt. The enterprise operation owned by the city may be funding the city debt, a local government may have 500 million invested with a bank, brokerage, or insurance company, and that institution is now funding 500 million of that same local government’s debt. A state may have massive investment capital in China, and now the same state will have the investment manager in China fund the state’s new bond issue which makes the funding “look” like it is coming from China, and so on, and so on, and so on.
The public was played as useful idiots per this scheme with the one side of the coin promoted of the debt. The public is now convinced that their gorgeous model wife is fat and ugly, when in fact she is just as gorgeous as ever and even more so. If government debt was cross-matched with government investments, and then offset against each other, you may just have 80% of that “government debt” evaporate with the stroke of a pen. Please don’t get caught into promoting the useful idiot line of government debt…
Please share my comments with anyone you know who is currently “promoting” the one-sided view of the coin per government debt, and share with whomever else you think needs to know the points brought forward above.

Who are we keeping out?
By Dave Hodges
The First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees freedom of religion and I honor that regardless of the religion. I am commanded by Jesus to love my enemies. I try my best, but I confess that I often fall short of the glory of God. As a man, I have always believed in allowing people to dress, speak and behave as they want. I do not have to agree with anyone to show them dignity and respect. However, I also recognize my right to self-defense. This includes the right to protect my family, my neighborhood and my country. It is because of the latter phrase, that I strongly believe that we need to force the Obama administration to immediately cease all unscreened immigration activities from Muslim groups coming out of Africa and the Middle East. All we have to do is to look at what is happening in Europe to see that the continued importation of Muslims is too dangerous. Nobody, from any region of the world should be allowed to come to this country without thoroughly being investigated for health reasons and for reasons related to terrorism.
In Part One, I detailed how the current administration is bringing 200,000 Muslim immigrants to Michigan. Additionally, it was also pointed out that Obama is permitting the United Nations refugee and resettlement program dictate to host countries how many immigrants that they must take in.
Do I need to remind people that these immigrants are coming from parts of the world where there is a resurgence of an Ebola outbreak? Do I need to remind people that these people are coming from a region of the world that overwhelmingly hates America and holds our Western ways in extreme contempt? Do I need to further remind people that many of these people are followers of Sharia Law and will not rest until Christianity and the lifestyle of the West is obliterated by those who will impose their will upon us under the guidelines espoused by Sharia Law?
What we are doing with our immigration policy is insane. It amounts to “Suicide by Immigration”! For what possible reason should the FBI not be screening for and deporting those who pose a potential threat to the existing social order within the United States?
The following story and accompanying video clearly demonstrates the unwise decisions to allow all from the Middle East and Africa who want to come to Europe to do so without being checked for known terrorist ties. Before you accuse me of being xenophobic, please remember that all people that passed through Ellis Island and Angel Island were screened for health and suitability to blend into the existing culture. And yes, I firmly believe that immigrants must not try and change the social order if they want to remain in the United States, for when a country loses its cultural identity, then the country loses its viability as a nation.
Terrorist Are Inviting Terrorist to Join Their Terrorist Brethren In Europe
The starting point for this article centers on the fact that known terrorists are inviting other known terrorists into Europe with devastating results. As the bottom of the article is a fascinating interview with a proven Jihadist, on Dutch TV who is actively calling for every terrorist to join him in Europe. This is frightening beyond belief. He calls upon the supremacy of Sharia Law to rule over all. His stark and disturbing invitation to all terrorist groups can be found at the 8:10 mark of this video.
IN THE VIDEO HE CLEARLY STATES THAT WE WILL WELCOME ISIS ARMY IN EUROPE WITH OPEN ARMS
This known terrorist, Maiwand al Afghani, stated that “The Mujahedeen Al Queda, Taliban, Al Sha’baab, ISIS, Al Nusra would arrive at the gates of Europe. We will welcome them with open arms. The whole of the West will in no time be taken. And be part of the Islamic State. All their technology, arms, atomic weapons, most luxury cars, buildings, money, beautiful women, planes. ….Everything will be war booty and we will get a fantastic country!”
America, this is your future if we continue to admit unscreened Muslims from Africa and the Middle East.
A Telling Interview
This interview appeared on VARA TV in the Netherlands on April 2, 2015. The host, Jeroen Pauw interviewed this well-known asylum seeker refugee Shabir Burhani, who is more known by the name of Maiwand al Afghani.
This self avowed terrorist, Maiwand, is depicted as a luxury refugee. Seventeen years ago he fled from Afghanistan, having clear Taliban ties, and is now a student at the University of Leiden.
This terrorist who has gained asylum seeker status; is getting help in every possible way; inclusive of financial aid. The “politically correct” multicultural policy makers from the United Nations have promoted Maiwand to be a fully-integrated new citizen, a champion showpiece of multiculturalism.
People like Maiwand will never be acculturated. Maiwand is a centerpiece of the United Nation’s Agenda 21 plan to erase all national boundaries as we move towards a one-world government controlled by the shadowy forces behind the United Nations.
Maiwand has been steadily radicalized and as he is also a Salafi Islam activist for whom the Sharia stands above the country laws. This means death to all who will not convert to Islam. This is the main philosophy of ISIS. Mainwand has further stated that the murder on Charlie Hebdo people is justified and he can also understand physical attack on gays as being legitimate.
THE MAIN QUESTION IS: WHAT IS MR. MAIWAND AL AFGHANI STILL DOING IN THE NETHERLANDS? WHY HE IS NOT SENT BACK TO HIS HERO’S OF THE TALIBAN?
In reality, Maiwand is an operative working for the Islamic State and he is recruiting any and all terrorists to come to Europe to claim the Continent for Allah under the uncompromising Sharia Law. His actions are supported by the American Islamic organization, CAIR.
MR. MAIWAND IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT PRESIDENT OBAMA IS BRINGING TO THE UNITED STATES. FAST FORWARD TOT HE 8:10 MARK AND BE PREPARED TO BE SHOCKED.
And if you think this exchange between the TV host and Marwaind is disturbing, you haven’t seen a thing compared to what I am prepared to show you tomorrow in Part Three. Again, I believe in religious toleration. However, when the religion is going to be used as a tool of political, social and religious persecution, I have to draw the proverbial line in the sand and advocate for national self-defense. Our communities are at extreme risk due to our RECKLESS PRESIDENT who is following UN immigration policy.
The videos and testimonies I am bringing forth tomorrow will reinforce the notion that this UN Refugee and Resettlement program being endorsed and brought forth by Obama, will result in a Battlefield America scenario ending With Blood In The Streets.
IT IS HAPPENING IN EUROPE, AS WILL BE EXPOSED TOMORROW, AND IT WILL SOON BE HAPPENING HERE.
There is no doubt that Dave is doing a little fear mongering here, but that’s better than being ignorant of how dangerous OBUMA IS IN THE BLACK HOUSE, and what he has planned for America! This of course, could never have happened in America if our citizens were not so damned ignorant, and that is exactly why we are all going to suffer unimaginable hardships soon. I have no fear of an ignorant rag-head, but many so called Americans are too cowardly TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. IT IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO BELIEVE ANY AMERICAN WOULD BE AFRAID OF A GUN, BUT THEY ARE!

This article was written by Simon Black originally publishes at Sovereign Man
I’ve long-stated that the government of the United States is completely insolvent.
And that is 100% true statement.
The government’s own numbers show that official liabilities, including debt held by the public and federal retirement benefits, total $20.7 trillion.
Yet the government’s assets, including the value of the entire federal highway system, the national parks, cash balances, etc. totals just over $3 trillion.
In total, their ‘net worth’ is NEGATIVE $17.7 TRILLION… a level that completely dwarfs the housing crisis.
If you include the government’s own estimates of the Social Security shortfall, this number declines to NEGATIVE $60 TRILLION.
And it gets worse every year.
Now, is this balance sheet an accurate reflection of reality? Do we really trust the bean counters to tell us what the United States of America is really worth?
Surely there must be significant intrinsic value to the United States military, for example.
Or the US government’s ability to collect taxes.
Or what about the value of all the natural resources underground?
These must all be HUGELY positive and would swing the government’s net worth back in the right direction.
The US military is certainly one of the best-trained and most effective forces in history.
But it’s difficult to place a substantial value on it when the government can no longer afford to use it.
And even when they do use it, the overall cost of doing so is negative.
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost the taxpayers $4 trillion. But where’s the financial benefit?
Aside from a few defense contractors profiting handsomely, the Chinese got most of the oil.
ISIS ended up with much of Iraq. And Iran made out like a bandit, with the US government taking out its most threatening neighbors free of charge.
Bottom line, even the best asset in the world can end up being a big liability if it’s used improperly.
So what about the tax authority of the US government? If Uncle Sam can collect $3 trillion in tax revenue each year, surely that must count as a huge asset.
And it absolutely is. If you conduct a Present Value calculation of the future tax revenue of the US government discounted by the official 2% rate of inflation, the US government’s ability to tax its citizens is ‘worth’ $150 TRILLION.
But… if you’re going to count the government’s tax authority as an asset, you have to be intellectually honest and consider the expenses as liabilities.
Think about it: yes, the government brings in tax revenue every single year. But for nearly every year over the last seventy years, they’ve spent far more money to deliver on the promises they’ve made to their citizens.
Those promises are liabilities. And given the government’s spending history since the end of World War II, the liabilities far exceed the tax authority asset.
More importantly, though, isn’t it a little bit scary to consider that the government’s #1 asset is its ability to steal money from you?
Or that the only way the government can make its liabilities go away is by defaulting on the promises it has made to its citizens?
That’s their only way out: steal from you, and default on you.

President Obama has said time and again that his greatest disappointment was that he was unable to enact new gun control legislation to further restrict the right of American citizens to keep and bear arms. In an effort to do an end run around Congress and enact some of that legislation, the Obama administration enacted some new policies that would make it impossible for some disabled vets to purchase guns and might even lead to their existing firearms being confiscated. That very nightmare scenario — the VA forcibly confiscating the firearms of a disabled veteran — almost happened in Idaho yesterday, but the VA was stopped in its tracks by a grassroots group of local residents. And the sheriff. And some politicians. All of whom stood on the man’s front yard to prevent the confiscation.
From the AP:
A group of residents in northern Idaho lined up outside a U.S. Navy veteran’s house on Thursday to protest claims that federal officials are planning on confiscating the man’s weapons.
Idaho Republican state Rep. Heather Scott of Blanchard said the Veteran Affairs office has sent a letter to John Arnold of Priest River warning him that he cannot possess or purchase firearms.
The protest -spearheaded by Scott- attracted roughly 100 people. Among them were Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler, who promised to stand guard against any federal attempts to remove Arnold’s guns, and Republican Washington state Rep. Matthew Shea of Spokane Valley, who described the event as a “defiance against tyranny.”
“I took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and uphold the laws of Idaho,” Wheeler said. “This seemed appropriate to show my support. I was going to make sure Mr. Arnold’s rights weren’t going to be breached.”
During Thursday’s demonstration, the group at times broke out in song to sing “God Bless America” and pray while waving both the American flag and the “Don’t tread on me” flag. With a population of just 1,700, Priest River is near the tip of northern Idaho- a region known for its strong tea party roots and gun-rights activism.
According to local news sources, the VA had sent the man a letter stating that an inspector was going to come to his house on the 6th to inspect his firearms and confiscate them. The VA confirmed that they sent the man a letter, but they deny that the VA has the power to confiscate guns from anyone. Which is true — the VA has reportedly been working with the FBI as their muscle to perform the actual confiscations. From the article on that particular issue:
A memo from February of 2012 was first obtained by the Daily Caller and titled “MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS AND THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION REGARDING THE NATIONAL INSTANT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM,” has been causing quite the stir.
This particular memo dictates that the VA must submit veterans health-related information to the FBI by way of encrypted compact disc and mailed quarterly. It states that the records will be used to update the NICS or National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
A separate document revealed that the VA provides a monthly list of veterans who have been rated by the VA as incapable of managing their VA benefits. A simple act of changing ones banking information could get a veteran on this list, as well as refusal to take the VA prescribed pills.
There’s a very dangerous game being played here. Much like with the terrorist watch list, people could be added to these secret no-gun lists at any time (and even by mistake) and then get a lovely knock on their door from the friendly local FBI agent to come violate their constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.
In this case it looks like a paperwork change has caused this chain of events to kick off. Some people are saying that there’s a well known process for milking the VA for a little more change in the monthly disability check that involves declaring yourself unable to manage your own finances. That doesn’t mean the vet in question actually has any mental issues at all — it simply means that he claims he can’t balance his checkbook and needs someone to do it for him. In the eyes of the VA that apparently puts him on the same level of the crazy scale as James Holmes and qualifies for firearms confiscation. The end result is that the disabled vet in question now has to spend his own time money and effort to prove to the VA that he isn’t dangerous before they stop trying to confiscate his firearms. Shouldn’t it be the other way around?
The ongoing stigma against people with a mental disability has made them an easy target in the gun control arena. President Obama and the rest of the gun control cheering squad have been using people with mental issues as a favorite whipping post, blaming everyone with even a slight case of ADD for all the gun related ills of the world. What you see here is the end result: people with mental disabilities having their rights trampled without any due process simply because Obama and Bloomberg think that they are an easy target.
Uncovered Government Docs Prove Chemtrails Real – Dane Wigington
By Greg Hunter
Lead researcher Dane Wigington for the global climate engineering informational website, GeoengineeringWatch.org, says newly discovered U.S. government documents prove global climate manipulation, commonly referred to as chemtrails, is real. Not only that, but the document, that originated in the U.S. Senate, also proves weather manipulation has been going on around the world for decades. The exponential damage it is doing continues today, and Wigington explains, “With the 750 page document, how much proof do people need? In this document, it describes the need for global cooperation between nations. There are some 50 or 60 countries named in the document involved with the programs, as well, even between nations that would otherwise have hostilities between them. . . . The document also names about 10 federal agencies, about 12 major universities, and it describes the need for complete immunity from liabilities created for all those involved in these programs. They have complete immunity for the damage they have done, basically. It is an extremely damning document. How big does the elephant in the room have to be? . . . There is no question these programs are real and ongoing.”
Wigington goes on to say, “In this 750 page document, the express goal is for those in power to decide who should get more rain and who should get less rain. . . . Even though you have the damage by these programs, the desire to play God with the weather was not suppressed at all. In the 1978 document, they talk about further expanding the programs to a wider scope and scale. These people think they have a right to play God with the weather, with no regard for the consequences what-so-ever.”
So, why is geoengineering or weather modification harmful to the planet? Wigington explains, “They have basically straight-jacketed the planet from being able to respond. In spite of a warming planet, which geoengineering can deflect and cause large areas of temporary cooling by blocking the sun, it comes with the cost of a worsened overall warming. They shred the ozone layer, they disrupt the rain cycle horribly. We have drought expanding around the globe, boreal forests are dying. So, the forests can’t absorb carbon that they otherwise would. The UV is cooking the trees. We have toxic metals raining down on us from what they are spraying with these programs. Aluminum, barium and strontium is poisoning the root system of these trees. They are trying to use the oceans, as well, to get them to absorb more carbon, and that is killing the oceans, as well. There are 400 dead zones around the planet. This is the ‘cure’ that is worse than the disease, and that is saying a lot. Climate engineering is the epitome, the absolute epitome, of human insanity and the quest for power and control. Ultimately, that’s what these programs are about power and control.”
Wigington also claims to have new information on government suppression of whistleblowers and gag orders given to NOAA and the National Weather Service. Wigington says climate engineering is a known secret in the highest offices of state and federal government. Wigington contends, “I was told by a Congressional aid off the record about 90 days ago, we all know what is going on and we don’t know what to do. This is the biggest elephant in the room. Everybody is afraid to step out of the shadows, but in the meantime, the ship is sinking, the entire ship, and we’re all on it.”
Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Dane Wigington, founder ofGeoEngineeringWatch .org.
(There is much more in the video interview.)
After the Interview:
Wigington adds that the California drought situation is “far beyond dire.” As he said in the interview, the state is down more than 250 inches of rain. He says it is amazing to him how people can “keep their heads in the sand, but they’re not going to be able to do that much longer.”

Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner? Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order? Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents.
At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly. The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists. But now the Obama administration is removing all references to Islam from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens.
And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay. So if you belong to a group of people that is now being referred to as “potential terrorists”, please don’t take it as a joke. The first step to persecuting any group of people is to demonize them. And right now large groups of peaceful, law-abiding citizens are being ruthlessly demonized.
Below is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents. To see the original source document for each point, just click on the link. As you can see, this list covers most of the country…

2.Those that advocate for states’ rights
3. Those that want “to make the world a better place”

This is a time for all intelligent people to oppose the New World Order being thrust upon humanity by the International Banking Cartel.
All of main-stream media is hiding this information as best they can, which means YOU must send this to every person you possibly can.
The media lies surrounding this plan of destruction have only one purpose and that is to usher in the NEW WORLD ORDER, OF TOTAL CONTROL OVER EVERY HUMAN BEING AND ALL NATURAL RESOURCES.
RISE UP AND OBJECT VORACIOUSLY!
Do not allow them to sacrifice anymore soldiers and ignore the wounded survivors.

Jeff Sessions: Great Danger’ Of Mass Amnesty In 2017
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is echoing the concerns of other prominent conservatives that the events unfolding now in Washington could lead to mass amnesty in 2017.
The word is… that 2017 is the year to watch for immigration, radio host Laura Ingraham asked Sessions. What are the chances… that if Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)is Speaker and Hillary Clinton is President of the United States, or Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is President of the United States that they would move in the first 100 days to push a massive, similar [to the Gang of Eight’] immigration reform bill?
Sessions replied, I think there’s a great danger that that would happen.
After the failed 2006-2007 amnesty push, the immigration lobby spent $1.5 billion leading up to the 2013 push in which Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) delivered a bill to allow even more foreign workers.
A recent PBS documentary exposed how Ryan and Rubio were nearly successful in their effort to pass amnesty in 2014. Ryan had crafted a bill and had the Republican votes necessary to pass it. Ryan’s amnesty effort was aided by many of the members of the House Freedom Caucus, including
Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) and Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID).
Mulvaney has since become one of the biggest boosters in the House Freedom Caucus of a Paul Ryan Speakership. According to the documentary, the Ryan-Rubio amnesty plan was foiled when
Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) scored a historic primary victory to oust then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
Sessions explained in the interview, There’s a great danger to elect a Speaker of the House who is a leading advocate for two major issues today — trade and immigration — and advocating against the wishes of the Republican voter.

Gods Chosen People?
Guest Column by Stephen Lensman
Stephen Lendman is a Jew. What you read below are the words of a Jew who has a moral conscience and cannot tolerate the horrendous crimes that the government of the state of Israel—supported to the hilt by the American neocons who have dominated every US government since Clinton—commits on Palestinians.
Many Jews have a moral conscience. Jews are the most outspoken critics of the Zionist Israeli government that is worshipped by brainwashed American gentiles. The government of Israel calls its Jewish critics “self-hating Jews” and works to eliminate them, with much success, from Western university and media employment.
The American Congress, the mythical “voice of the people,” is in fact the voice of the crazed rightwing Israeli government. The idiots in Congress actually send each year to the Israeli government the billions of our taxpayer dollars that the Israeli government uses to buy the elections and the votes of the US Conress.
You can tell who the honest members of the House and Senate are. They are the few who do not vote as the Israel Lobby orders. Usually, such representatives elected by Americans don’t last long in the job.
Bloody Friday in Palestine
by Stephen Lendman
Israel’s killing machine raged on Friday, continuing into Saturday. The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said Israeli forces wounded over 290 Palestinians yesterday alone, many seriously – 48 from live fire, 44 using rubber-coated steel bullets.
Hundreds suffered from toxic tear gas inhalation. Maan News said “Israeli forces used Palestine TV reporter and cameraman Sira Sarhan and Hadi al-Dibs as human shields…forcing them at gunpoint to remain in front of their Jeep and tell protesters to stop throwing rocks.”
French journalist David Perrotin was brutally assaulted by Jewish Defense League Zionist zealots outside AFP’s Paris headquarters. He was beaten with batons.
Lunatics involved tried storming AFP’s building, waving Israeli flags, throwing eggs, chanting: “We’re coming to get you.”
One agitator raved: “We are here to show support for Israel in our war against the Arabs. Journalists working for organizations like AFP support the Islamic terrorists and that’s why we have to fight back.” Friday night, Perrotin twittered he’s OK. He thanked everyone expressing support.
On October 21, Luay Faisal Ali Abeid stood on his third floor balcony, displaying no weapon, threatening no one. No clashes were ongoing in the area around his home.
An Israeli soldier opened fire at him without just cause, a rubber-coated steel bullet fracturing his skull and nose, striking his left eye. Surgeons couldn’t save it. They had to operate to remove it.
On Saturday, an Israeli security guard murdered a Palestinian teenager in cold blood. He was unarmed threatening no one.
Palestinian medical workers said Israel prevented help from reaching him. He was shot at least five times. Overnight Friday into Saturday morning, dozens of Palestinians were kidnapped – in East Jerusalem, Jenin, Abu Dis, Qabatia and Bethlehem.
Western and Israeli media reports are entirely one-sided. Palestinians are wrongfully portrayed as knife-wielding terrorists. Most reports are fabricated. The few legitimate ones are blown way out of proportion.
Rampaging Israeli forces and extremist settlers are considered noble defenders. Al Monitor said “(t)he Obama administration is cutting aid to the Palestinians by $80 million in what congressional sources describe as a ‘message’ to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.”
It’s being reduced from $370 million to $290 million for the fiscal year ending September 30 – following criticism from congressional members, blaming Palestinians for vicious Israeli incitement and premeditated persecution over the past three weeks.
Zionist zealot Rep. Eliot Engel (D. NY) said “(w)e need to dial up pressure on Palestinian officials to repudiate this violence.” On October 22, House Foreign Affairs Committee members voted unanimously to punish Palestinians for Israeli high crimes.
Practically the entire Congress one-sidedly supports Israel, no matter how outrageous its crimes – nothing worse than cold-blooded murder, defenseless Palestinians outrageously blamed.
AIPAC demands an end to “Palestinian incitement…Palestinian terrorists are attacking Israelis,” it rants.
“Palestinian leaders…exacerbated tensions,” instead of accurately saying it’s the other way around, Israel entirely responsible, being rewarded by Washington with hundreds of millions more in military aid – supporting its killing machine to spill more blood.
“Palestinians must renew direct peace talks with Israel (to achieve) a real and lasting peace,” claims AIPAC – ignoring reality on the ground.
Israel and Washington deplore peace and stability, thrive on endless violence, at all times blame victims for their viciousness.
So-called peace initiatives are dead on arrival every time. They’re a waste of time, Palestinians always wrongfully blamed for failure.
Daily NYT reports provide cover for Israeli high crimes. Not a word on horrific Friday’s Israeli-instigated violence on defenseless Palestinians explained above.
Instead headlined “Jewish Man Stabbed in Israel by Palestinians as Violence Continues,” blaming them for an ongoing “wave of violence.”
The entire article highlights claims about Jewish victims, Palestinian terrorists, attackers, assailants. The latest Times propaganda piece cited Israel saying a “Palestinian stabber (was) shot dead.”
No Israelis were harmed. No weapons were found. Another accusation repeats the same Big Lie about violent Palestinians, poor Israeli victims. It’s hard believing this stuff gets printed – maliciously and willfully turning truth on its head.
Sources are always government or military officials, past or current ones, mostly unnamed, repeating the same old Big Lie, long ago discredited by legitimate news reports and analysts.
Israeli state terror, fully supported by Washington and rogue allies, bears full responsibility for ongoing, earlier and certain future violence against defenseless Palestinian victims.
The Times and other media scoundrels never report what everyone needs to know. Israel’s war on Palestinians continues with no resolution in prospect.
Just as the New York Times lies through its teeth about Palestinians, the New York Times lies through its teeth about Russia. Lendman holds the presstitutes accountable.
NYT Big Lie Claims Russia Bombing Syrian Hospitals
by Stephen Lendman
On October 20, The Times tried justifying the Pentagon’s latest Afghan war crime, willfully bombing a Doctors Without Borders (MSF) hospital without just cause – premeditated Times deception suggesting otherwise, ignoring indisputable facts.
The death toll keeps rising, 26 according to MSF as of October 23 – 37 others injured, many severely. Numbers of known fatalities “may not be final numbers,” said MSF.
“All that now remains of the three operating theaters, the ER and outpatient departments, and the intensive care unit are collapsed roofs, blackened walls, floors thick with dust, and twisted pieces of metal that were once beds or trolleys,” it explained painfully.
Its outrage remains unchanged. The Times report tried whitewashing deliberate mass murder. Its lies and will distortions never quit.
On October 22, it claimed precision Russian airstrikes on ISIS and other takfiri targets struck “(a)t least seven hospitals or medical facilities in Syria,” another vicious Big Lie, same old Times reporting, systematically suppressing hard truths, substituting made up rubbish.
Its source for this and other anti-Syrian propaganda – the London-based, Western financed con man Rami Abdul Rahman Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), reporting only what his backers tell him to say, a pack of lies they want proliferated by willing major media scoundrels.
On Friday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova blasted anti-Russian propaganda, phony reports about its Syrian operations, saying:
“There are so-called mass media reports which allege that Russian aircraft bombed a field hospital in the Idlib Governorate in northwestern Syria and reportedly killed 13 people.”
Journalists don’t write these type reports, she explained. They publish anti-Russian propaganda prepared for them, claiming it’s real news.
She blasted SOHR, saying “(a)s we all understand, it is very ‘convenient’ to cover and observe what is happening in Syria without leaving London and without the ability to collect information in the field.”
Russia’s campaign scrupulously avoids striking civilians, while “terrorist groups (keep getting) reinforcements of people (and) equipment from abroad…”
“These facts raise a question as to whether parties involved in the Syrian conflict are really interested in a peaceful settlement, and how this goal is reconciled with financial and technical support for anti-government armed groups, including those who directly cooperate with terrorists.”
Daily anti-Russian propaganda rages. Fabricated rubbish substitutes for hard truths. Only fools and liars believe it.
In a few short weeks, Russia’s anti-terrorism campaign in Syria continues showing remarkable effectiveness – ISIS and other takfiris getting systematically battered. Not a shred of evidence suggests it’s bombing hospitals or other civilian sites. Reports claiming otherwise are willful lies.
Moscow’s formidable weapons and air power have Pentagon commanders trembling, likely not eager to pick a fight it knows it can’t win.

UNLIMITED COMPASSION IS NOT SUSTAINABLE — MORATORIUM NOW!
Americans, Canadians, and Western Europeans have been urged by religious and ethnic leaders and some politicians and environmentalists, to show compassion for the millions of “refugees” from North Africa, the Middle East and Latin America pouring into Europe, Canada and the USA.
But what those urging compassion fail to realize—or flat out deny—is that “compassion” has environmental and other limits. Indeed we live in a world of limited resources, limited carrying capacity, limited budgets, limited topsoil, limited wilderness, and limited solitude.
And the fact that the world’s population is increasing by some 80 million/year, makes many of our choices an “either/or” proposition. For example, either we can provide opportunities for our own working poor, and unemployed, or for the 1.5 million legal and hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants the USA admits every year, but NOT for all of these.
For those with the courage and honesty to acknowledge them, environmental limits are especially evident. We reiterate that for every person added to the U.S. population, one acre of farmland or wildlife habitat is converted to developed uses (Pimentel et. al. Cornell).
Indeed, unlimited compassion which results in unlimited immigration-generated population growth is NOT environmentally sustainable, as Canadian anti-Mass immigration activist and BALANCE Board Member, Tim Murray, asserts in the following essay “Unlimited Compassion is Not Sustainable”.
Unlimited Compassion Is Not Sustainable
Has a Green Party leader in any country in the world ever met an asylum-seeker, refugee or migrant that he or she wouldn’t accept? Or one who shouldn’t be waved in without sufficient screening?
Is there a Green Party somewhere out there that doesn’t want their nation to be a welcome wagon for untold millions or tens of millions?
Is there a Green Party alive today whose primary focus is not “social justice” dressed up in trendy shibboleths about ‘renewable’ energy and ‘sustainability’, a word they have helped to debase and render meaningless?
Is there a Green Party in some distant galaxy that realizes that there is no social justice on a dead planet and that nature is indifferent to our social and political arrangements?
Is there a Green Party that understands that first and foremost migration must be treated as an ecological issue and not one of ‘human rights’? Or that the rights of people indigenous to a nation trump the ‘rights’ of migrants who aspire to reach it?
Do Greens—in any country—understand limits? Financial limits? Population limits? Limits to our cultural, economic and ecological carrying capacity? Limits to growth? Limits to the number of euphemisms they use to re-brand economic growth as ‘smart’ growth, ‘managed’ growth, “sustainable’ growth, or ‘sustainable development’, a phrase that Garrett Hardin said merely allowed us a moratorium on thinking’? Euphemisms which have yet to fool Mother Nature? Is there any limit to their ignorance about the Laws of Sustainability? These people scare the pants off me.
There are some unmentionable (to the Politically Correct) questions beneath all of this. Questions that would strike at the premise of all the hand-wringing and moral one-up-man-ship about ‘boat people’, ‘asylum-seekers’ or ‘refugees’, as we call them here. Those questions are, “Why do we have a moral obligation to accept them?” And “What of our moral obligations to our own people and our own land?”
Before purchasing a car or a television set or a sofa or a house, the prudent consumer conducts an audit of his financial resources. And if he must rely on a loan, the bank will certainly conduct one. So why are we—Canadians, Australians, Americans, French, British, Europeans—even talking about accepting more asylum-seekers when we haven’t even determined what our carrying capacity is or developed a Population Plan for our country?
There are lots of dogs that I would like to adopt from the local SPCA—dogs that need and deserve a good home—but I can’t accommodate them or pay for their upkeep. To retain the capability to remain compassionate and caring to my own animals, I must remain callous to the plight of those poor animals who languish in the animal shelter. Yes, refugees are human beings. But so are the people here who depend on food banks, who are homeless and unemployed. So are the roughly 35,000 Canadian orphans who wait in vain for placement in good homes. So are the 20% of Canadian kids living below the poverty line. So are the aboriginal youth who suffer an unemployment rate of 75-80% on the reserves. Yet refugee claimants in Canada get better medical treatment than many Canadians (e.g., vision and dental care) and receive affordable housing. We find the money for them, but we haven’t got it for the Canadians I mention. What kind of “compassion” is this?
The backbone of the pro-refugee lobby here consists of Christian denominations. They should check out 1st Timothy 5:8 in their own Bible. “He who does not first attend to the needs of his own family is no better than a heathen.” Ironically, the leader of Canada’s Green Party, Elizabeth May, aspires to be an ordained Minister of the United Church of Canada. Obviously she is as ignorant of scripture as the rest of the human rights coalition, which includes “No One Is Illegal”, a Marxist group that attempts to shout down any politician who would propose limits to refugee and immigrant intakes and services. It is puzzling that a political party that was formed to make “the environment” its focus, should attempt—the world over—to duplicate the role of centre-left parties, whose commitment to the environment is mere window-dressing. The word “Green” is the biggest marketing scam yet contrived. Slap that label on any product on a supermarket shelf and it is purchased without scrutiny. If it says its “Green” it must be Green. If a political party says that it is “Green”, then it must be Green. Who reads the fine print anyway?
Too often we have yielded the ethical “high-ground” to our opponents without a fight. We have not challenged their assumptions and assertions. The truth is, they do not occupy the moral high-ground. Their concept of “compassion” is based on the assumption of persistent abundance. For them, there are no opportunity costs, no trade-offs or hard choices to be made. Instead, we must “fight the cuts”. The concept that austerity can be ultimately imposed by geological constraints is beyond their understanding. Their core belief is that there is enough to go around, if only we would “share” our bounty equitably. A bounty, as we know, that is based on a one-time bonanza of fossil fuels, metals and minerals that are finite and whose full exploitation would propel us into a Venusian nightmare—if not cut short by nuclear, biological and chemical war occasioned by resource conflicts.
Compassion is a luxury of surplus. Scarcity makes it a zero-sum game. “Looking after one’s own first” is a bedrock moral imperative, an ethical principle that we see at work in times of tribulation, like war. My uncle served in the Royal Canadian Navy during the war, and “Lifeboat Ethics” was built right into their action protocol. When men jumped from their burning merchant ships, the corvettes had only minutes to recover them, because the priority was to find and destroy the U-Boats that would sink other ships and cause greater losses. And if they themselves were hit, the bulkhead hatches remained closed, even though there were men trapped behind them as the sea water rose up to drown them. As my uncle told me, for the sake of the ship, “You listened to their screams and you did nothing.”
Those are ethics of scarcity. Triage ethics. Lifeboat ethics—where the survival of the ship is more important than the survival of the passengers or crew. Ethics which the likes of Pope Francis or would-be United Church Minister Elizabeth May will not acknowledge or entertain. Her slogan, the slogan of the newly minted “Leap Manifesto”, is that we must “Care for the Earth and Care for Each Other”. All 7.3 billion of us, apparently. All 35 million Canadians too, even though one could name several prominent Canadian scientists who have argued that Canada is in population overshoot by at least a factor of two. Oh, I forgot, we can accommodate zillions if only we lived simply and cut back our per capita “footprint”. Just imagine, a Canada of 350 million Lilliputians living carbon-free, with the gate left wide open to those tens of millions who would join us. But then, if drove our per capita consumption down far enough, none would want to join us. In other words, we can put an end to ‘Failed State Colonization’ by becoming another ‘Failed State’. Is that the end game? Sure looks like it, doesn’t it?
When are we going to close the hatches on HMCS Canada, HMAS Australia, HMS United Kingdom, USS America, and the listing ship “Europe”? When our population, already in overshoot, doubles? How do we know that the people we are now taking on board will not meet a fate not too unlike the one they escaped from? How do we know that they will not be straw that broke the camel’s back here?
Humanitarian policies that are bought with an ecological or economic credit card are not sustainable.
Putting aside the fact that many “refugees” are actually economic migrants, consider that each and every “refugee” USA accepts becomes instantly entitled to all benefits of a similarly situated American including Social Security, welfare, food stamps, cash grants, and taxpayer-supported housing. Thus “refugees” are hugely expensive to Taxpayers.
Over 90% of Middle Eastern “refugees” are on welfare. President Obama has already said he would admit 200,000 “refugees” in the next two years, and has threatened to admit many more.
• Refugees can be resettled in any community in the USA according to the dictates of the Refugee Resettlement Agency and no community can refuse to take them.
• Neither refugees nor other illegal aliens are properly ‘vetted’, or vetted at all thus making us vulnerable to violent extremists who seek to harm us [by the way, over 50% of the “refugees” moving into Austria and Germany are young single mostly Muslim males!]
• A large majority of all the “Refugees” and Asylees are from Muslim countries as were the Boston Bombers (whose families received Taxpayer support) Mass Immigration is NOT “just about the Numbers”.
• Couple the foregoing with the fact that many Illegal Aliens head for “Sanctuary Cities” as did the Alleged Killer of Kate Steinle, a five-time Felon with Multiple Deportations, who admitted he went to San Francisco because it was a Sanctuary City
• And many, many more examples of “Refugee”/ Illegal Alien Crime are not reported by the Main Stream Media.
• And there is the Budgetary Burden — 51% of all immigrant-headed households are on some form of Welfare Program with Immigrant Hispanics being three times as likely to be on welfare as native-born Americans (cis.org). Claims that Mass Immigration helps the economy are a Myth. Mass Immigration MAY increase aggregate GDP, but almost always DECREASES PER CAPITA GDP.
And mass Illegal and legal Immigration greatly depresses native-born Americans incomes and job opportunities…. 2014 Real median household income FELL 2.3% for the Native-Born, and ROSE 4.3% for foreign born! (U.S. Census 9/16/15 Poverty Report—see shadowstats.com for a complete analysis).
Of course, this massive population increase creates an increasing strain on the Environment.
For example, Does California have the ADDITIONAL Million-Acre-Feet of Water (10 California Reservoirs worth as of May, 2015—See BALANCE June Alert) needed to accommodate the additional 400,000 legal and illegal Immigrants added each year (U.S. Census Bureau) to California’s population?
And for those concerned about the worldwide population explosion, remember that allowing Mass Immigration from over-populated countries drives up fertility rates in those sending Countries (Ann Brittain, et al).
And above all, do we not have a moral obligation to provide better opportunities and safety net care for our own working poor, unemployed and underemployed before admitting more refugees or immigrants?! A Women’s Shelter in Marin County recently refused to admit a woman and her children who were being abused by an ex-boyfriend because, they were told, the Shelter was only admitting refugees.
Bottom line: The USA will be under increasing pressure to admit ever-more legal and illegal immigrants. So NOW is the time to just say STOP and help us push our Victory Initiative:
Only BALANCE’s Victory Initiative Does that.
ACT NOW to STOP the worsening Crisis! Ask your Representatives to support
1) A Zero-Net All-Inclusive, i.e., including “Refugees” and “Aslyees”, Moratorium on Legal Immigration—this would still allow 100,000 to 150,000 thousand Immigrants to obtain legal residence annually. That number—still large—compares with an estimated 1.5 million legal aliens admitted to the USA annually. A Zero-Net Moratorium is Essential not only because of the extraordinary costs to Taxpayers saddled with providing Billions of Dollars’ worth of “Free” Medical Care, Education, and other services to majority of the Legal immigrants and illegal aliens, but also to protect our Natural Environment from Degradation and unsustainable resource use.
NASA/Caltech Scientist, Familighietti, warned recently that California’s Reservoirs would likely run out of water within a year. So, what of the 400,000 ADDITIONAL Legal Immigrants and Illegal Aliens [at least] that California receives each year (U.S Census Bureau). They will consume an ADDITIONAL Million Acre-Feet of Water each year. But should Californians share their limited and shrinking water supplies? Already some Californians are required to resort to using “From Toilet to Tap” reprocessed Sewage water. And California’s Worsening Water Crisis will increasingly threaten Food Supplies and Increase Prices since California provides 50% to 90% of many Essential Foods for our Entire Nation.
Indeed, are we not compelled to conclude that:
“The only thing that stands between America and oblivion is a total immigration moratorium. No other fix will work…”
Ann Coulter, ¡Adios America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole, 2015
Indeed, the USA, Canada, and Western Europe are in Great Danger of Creating the Great Immigration Crisis of which Jean Raspail prophetically warned in his 1974 Classic Novel “The Camp of the Saints”!
Thus the Reps. Brat (R-VA) and Hice (R-GA) Bill, H.R. 604, which would end Chain Migration and enhance Enforcement, is definitely a step in the Right Direction, but we really do need a Moratorium!
2) No More Amnesties or Sanctuary Cities—Amnesties reward Illegal Behavior with increasingly Tragic Consequences. “Sanctuary City” laws are de facto Amnesties and should be defunded and outlawed. Support “Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Act”, HR 3002 – Rep. Barletta (R-PA) and “Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act”, HR 3309 – Rep. Hunter (R-CA) and HR 1148 – Gowdy (R-SC) which would empower local law enforcement to enforce Federal Immigration laws, as well as companion bills in the Senate. Support the “Resettlement Accountability National Security Act” (H.R. 3314) (Babin, R. TX) which would immediately suspend all Refugee processing until the GAO completes a full study of the Cost to Federal, State and Local Government as well as National Security issues.
While this is an excellent Bill, worthy of support, it is limited in its scope, it does not address the massive problems which are intensified with ongoing mass legal and illegal Immigration.
Were it not for Sanctuary City laws and Open Borders policies, those many victims murdered or injured by Illegal Aliens in San Francisco, San Antonio, Las Vegas, New Jersey, Arizona, and Laredo, Texas RECENTLY might be alive and well today.
For those who say it is already “too late” to save America, we respond that, unless we act NOW, the Situation will become Worse, MUCH WORSE. UNLESS WE ACT NOW! IF we do not succeed, a “Third World Hell Hole” is surely in our Future.
3) Enforce Immigration Laws—Secure the Borders: Existing laws relating to Legal Immigration and Border Security are not being enforced, primarily because of the Obama Administration’s Unconstitutional Executive Orders including tying the hands of our Border Patrol.
4) No Citizenship for Illegal Aliens’ or Visitors’ Offspring: “Birth Tourism” has become a flourishing Industry in the USA, and, understandably so, since babies born in the USA are deemed (based on a judicial misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment) to be Citizens. As Citizens, they can bring their parents and other relatives into the USA as permanent legal residents—on average, seventeen relatives per Anchor Baby—eligible for Citizenship, as well as Billions in “free” Medical Care, Education, Welfare payments, Food Stamps and other taxpayer funded benefits.
The Solution to keeping the Mass Immigration-generated Crises from getting much, much worse is to push the Administration and Congress to enact a zero-net MORATORIUM on Legal Immigration and seal the Borders to stop Illegal Immigration. Eisenhower Administration policies showed that many illegal aliens self-deport when authorities get tougher as President Eisenhower did when he deported over One Million Illegals in the 1950s. And we must push NOW so that we can generate increasing support for Bills to be enacted ASAP, but realistically no later than when a New President is in office in the Spring, 2017
From a Political-Strategic Perspective, pushing a zero-net Moratorium is Essential to delegitimize the whole Policy of Mass Immigration. (Again, isn’t our First Obligation to our own Millions of Unemployed and Underemployed?) Also, pushing a Moratorium is Essential to maximize Political Pressure to get some Reductions at least. BALANCE’s Moratorium Push MAXIMIZES Political Pressure NOW and thus is the most efficient use of our Activists’ time and money.
Refusing to push a Moratorium (as certain Inside-the-Beltway and other Mass Immigration [de facto ] Management Groups do), is a Recipe for Failure as the past three decades have shown, since that is merely Defensive.
Such a Refusal is, indeed, Counterproductive—merely pushing for “immigration reform,” legitimizes the continuation of Mass Immigration because it sends the message that Mass Immigration is OK if we just tweak it a little bit. And it is even worse to push for “Controlled Immigration for the National Interest” because that sends the message that Mass Immigration IS in the National Interest. As well, being merely Defensive increases the chances of passage of Bad Bills, e.g., Illegal Alien Amnesties, and the Issuance of Unconstitutional Executive Orders.
Having a zero-net Moratorium goal is key as an objective because it is reasonable and Essential for long-term Environmental Protection and for providing Sufficient Resources, INCLUDING WATER and FOOD and Money, for survival. Today, we are in the process of exceeding our long-term Carrying Capacity. We must Reverse Course NOW!
A zero-net Moratorium is The Necessary Condition for achieving U.S. Population Stabilization, long term Environmental Protection, Budgetary Solvency in State and Local Government (especially for our Health Care and Educational Institutions), Tax Reduction, Unemployment Reduction, Social Cohesion and Personal Safety … and for protection of our Food and Water Supplies!
WE ARE FACING A MANY-MONTHS-LONG SERIES OF BATTLES ON THESE ISSUES, extending well past 2016.
So PLEASE Help BALANCE Intensify our push for a zero-net Moratorium and the other Victory Initiative Positions!
Certain Well-Funded Cheap Labor Advocates on the Right, and Ethnic Power and Government Benefits Recipients on the Left, are pushing hard for further implementation of President Obama’s Mass Illegal Alien Amnesty, AND FOR MASSIVE INCREASES IN LEGAL IMMIGRATION, including Refugees and Asylees!
Only our Massive Grassroots Effort can stop them! Phone Calls or Office Visits followed by Snail Mail letters are most effective (emails are often ignored and fax machines can be turned off).
And please consider that BALANCE is greatly outspent by the Cheap Labor Lobby and various Ethnic Power Lobbies.
So Please Help BALANCE Intensify our push for the aforementioned ASAP! Coalition Initiative, TODAY, NOW!

51 Percent of Americans Make Less than $30,000 per year October 22, 2015 “Information Clearing House” – “End Of The American Dream” – We just got more evidence that the middle class in America is dying. According to brand new numbers that were just released by the Social Security Administration, 51 percent of all workers in the United States make less than $30,000 a year. Let that number sink in for a moment. You can’t support a middle class family in America today on just $2,500 a month – especially after taxes are taken out. And yet more than half of all workers in this country make less than that each month. In order to have a thriving middle class, you have got to have an economy that produces lots of middle class jobs, and that simply is not happening in America today.
You can find the report that the Social Security Administration just released right here: . The following are some of the numbers that really stood out for me:
38 percent of all American workers made less than $20,000 last year.
51 percent of all American workers made less than $30,000 last year.
62 percent of all American workers made less than $40,000 last year.
71 percent of all American workers made less than $50,000 last year.
That first number is truly staggering. The federal poverty level for a family of five is $28,410, and yet almost 40 percent of all American workers do not even bring in $20,000 a year.
If you worked a full-time job at $10 an hour all year long with two weeks off, you would make approximately $20,000. This should tell you something about the quality of the jobs that our economy is producing at this point.
And of course the numbers above are only for those that are actually working. As I discussed just recently, there are 7.9 million working age Americans that are “officially unemployed” right now and another 94.7 million working age Americans that are considered to be “not in the labor force”. When you add those two numbers together, you get a grand total of 102.6 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now.
So many people that I know are barely scraping by right now. Many families have to fight tooth and nail just to make it from month to month, and there are lots of Americans that find them-selves sinking deeper and deeper into debt.
If you can believe it, about a quarter of the country actually has a negative net worth right now.
What that means is that if you have no debt and you also have ten dollars in your pocket that gives you a greater net worth than about 25 percent of the entire country. The following comes from a recent piece by Simon Black. Credit Suisse estimates that 25% of Americans are in this situation of having a negative net-worth.
“If you’ve no debts and have $10 in your pocket you have more wealth than 25% of Americans. More than 25% of Americans have collectively that is.”
The thing is– not only did the government create the incentives, but they set the standard.
With a net worth of negative $60 trillion, US citizens are just following dutifully in the government’s footsteps.
As a nation we are flat broke and most of us are living paycheck to paycheck. It has been estimated that it takes approximately $50,000 a year to support a middle class lifestyle for a family of four in the U.S. today, and so the fact that 71 percent of all workers make less than that amount shows how difficult it is for families that try to get by with just a single breadwinner.
Needless to say, a tremendous squeeze has been put on the middle class. In many families, both the husband and the wife are working as hard as they can, but it is still not enough. With each passing day, more Americans are losing their spots in the middle class and this has pushed government dependence to an all-time high. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 49 percent of all Americans now live in a home that receives money from the government each month.
Sadly, the trends that are destroying the middle class in America just continue to accelerate. With a huge assist from the Republican leadership in Congress, Barack Obama recently completed negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Also known as Obamatrade, this insidious new treaty is going to cover nations that collectively account for 40 percent of global GDP. Just like NAFTA, this treaty will result in the loss of thousands of businesses and millions of good paying American jobs. Let us hope and pray that Congress somehow votes it down.
Another thing that is working against the middle class is the fact that technology is increasingly taking over our jobs. With each passing year, it becomes cheaper and more efficient to have computers, robots and machines do things that humans once did.
Eventually, there will be very few things that humans will be able to do more cheaply and more efficiently than computers, robots and machines. How will most of us make a living when that happens?
The robopocalypse for workers may be inevitable. In this vision of the future, super-smart machines will best humans in pretty much every task. A few of us will own the machines, a few will work a bit… while the rest will live off a government-provided income… the most common job in most U.S. states probably will no longer be truck driver.
For decades, we have been training our young people to have the goal of “getting a job” once they get out into the real world. But in America today there are not nearly enough good jobs to go around, and this crisis is only going to accelerate as we move into the future.
I do not believe that it is wise to pin your future on a corporation that could replace you with a foreign worker or a machine the moment that it becomes expedient to do so. We need to start thinking differently, because the paradigms that worked in the past are fundamentally breaking down.
So what advice would you give to a young adult today that is looking toward the future?

By Chuck Baldwin
For seven consecutive presidential administrations (since Bush, Sr. invaded Kuwait–2016 will make it 28 years), the American people have been told that they are at war with terrorists. Republican and Democrat administrations and congresses alike have built America’s entire foreign policy around this hypothesis. Trillions of taxpayer dollars have been spent. Thousands of American troops have lost their lives. And tens of thousands have been wounded–many of them seriously. Plus, hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in the Middle East have lost their lives to America’s “war on terror.”
In the name of the “war on terror,” the people of the United States have become the most spied upon and servile people in world history. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Justice, and Pentagon have constructed the most elaborate domestic spy machine known to man. We are told that all of this is helping to keep America “safe.” We are told the same thing about our incessant drone attacks, the thousands of sorties conducted by our military aircraft, and our never-ending wars of aggression in the Middle East.
First, we were told the terrorists were Al Qaeda and the Taliban. We invaded two countries to rid the world of these sand people. But after years of war by the most powerful and sophisticated military might in the world (the U.S. military), Al Qaeda and the Taliban are still with us–stronger than ever. Then we were told the terrorists were ISIS. Supposedly, Barack Obama has been at war with these sand people ever since he took office. But all that has happened is ISIS has gotten stronger and stronger. Surely, any rational person should be able to see through this façade.
The truth is the United States is not at war with ISIS; the United States helped to create and continues to fund and support ISIS. America’s so-called war against ISIS is a total farce. The U.S. government in Washington, D.C., has used ISIS to fight a proxy war against Syria on behalf of Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Israel–not to mention the globalist puppet-masters. Outside of the United States, virtually the entire world knows it. But, you see, America has the most sophisticated propaganda machine ever known to man: the national news media.
The entire national press corps in this country (with FOX News at the front of the pack) constantly promotes the drumbeat of war by regurgitating government-sponsored talking points and “intelligence,” never bothering to investigate or question the veracity of the government’s assertions. Joseph Goebbels could only have dreamed of such an efficient propaganda ministry.
Joining the national news media are millions of evangelical Christians such as John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Hal Lindsey, et al., who use the doctrine of Christian Zionism to also pound the drumbeat of war.
See this report.
Yet, by supporting Islamic terror groups such as ISIS, what U.S. foreign policy (with the support of the national news media and Hagee-type evangelicals) is actually doing is assisting the most violent and barbaric stripe of Islam. ISIS is nothing more than the resident terror group of Saudi Arabia’s Sunni Muslim empire. Without any risk of being hyperbolic, Saudi Arabia is one of the most barbarous terror-nations in the entire world. Yet, the U.S. government considers Saudi Arabia to be one of its closest allies. And that’s the problem: it is.
By far, the richest man in the world is Saudi Arabia’s King Salman. To give you an idea of how wealthy this Sunni Muslim is, billionaires such as Bill Gates, Carlos Slim, and Warren Buffet are only 1/20th to 1/50th as rich as he is. And, as you can imagine, Salman is joined at the hip to the most powerful and wealthiest international bankers in the world, such as the Rockefellers and Rothschilds–and giant oil companies such as Chevron and Standard Oil.
And in the Sunni Muslim mind of King Salman, the greatest enemy is Shia Muslims which are predominantly located in countries such as Syria, Iran, and Yemen. It is Saudi Arabia (assisted by its allies in the United States, Turkey, and Israel) that is the chief sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East. This is why the so-called “war on terror” by the United States is such a joke. Ever since the administration of George H.W. Bush, the White House has been in the pocket of petro-dollar billionaires around the world–with the king of Saudi Arabia being the Cock-A-Doodle-Do of them all.
See this report.
I’m sure everyone readily remembers seeing news video of those caravans of Toyota pickup trucks with ISIS flags waving proudly atop them. Well, guess what! Those Toyota pickup trucks were supplied by the United States. Just another reason why the greatest military force in the world was unable to locate and destroy these trucks (and the terrorists riding in them) as they crawled along the Middle Eastern desert. Again, what a crock!
See the report.
No wonder Iraqi Commander Hassan al-Sari said that Vladimir Putin’s Russian coalition “is fighting against the ISIL on behalf of the whole world” while the US had played no role in the recent victories against the terrorists.
Here is the report.
Former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Ronald Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts, was more than blunt in his praise of Putin’s genuine war against the Sunni terrorists in Syria, while denouncing in no uncertain terms the phony war on terror in Washington, D.C. He writes, “The distinguished and knowledgeable international commentator William Engdahl, in a superb statement, has expressed the view I gave you that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s speech on September 28 at the 70th anniversary of the United Nations changed the balance of power in the world. Until Putin’s speech the world was intimidated by the Washington Bully. Resistance to Washington brought swift retribution. In the Middle East and Africa it brought economic sanctions and military invasions that destroyed entire countries. In France and other US vassal states it brought multi-billion dollar confiscations of bank net worth as the price of not following Washington’s policies toward other countries.”
Roberts continues: “President Putin of Russia brought all that to end on September 28. He stood up before the world in the presence of the overflowing hubris of the hegemon and belled the cat.
“Putin denounced Washington’s threat to the sovereignty, and thereby the freedom, of peoples and countries. He denounced the heartless criminality of Washington’s destruction of the lives of millions of peoples on the basis of nothing other than Washington’s own arrogance. He denounced the illegality of Washington’s assaults on the sovereignty of other peoples, and declared that Russia can no longer tolerate this state of affairs in the world.
“Two days later he took over the war in Syria and began exterminating the Washington financed and equipped Islamic State. Cruise missiles launched from the Caspian Sea hit ISIL targets with pinpoint accuracy and showed Washington’s EU vassals that Washington’s ABM system could not protect them if Europe permitted Washington to force Europe into conflict with Russia.
“Washington’s response was more lies: ‘the missiles hit Iran,’ said the idiots in Washington. The entire world laughed at the lie. Washington, some said, is whistling past its empire’s own graveyard.”
Roberts goes on: “This is a sea change. It will affect the behavior of every government. Even some of the craven vassals states, whose ‘leaders’ are bought-and-paid-for, will move toward a more independent foreign policy.
“The remaining danger is the crazed American neoconservatives. I know many of them. They are completely insane ideologues. This inhuman filth has controlled the foreign policy of every US government since Clinton’s second term. They are a danger to all life on earth. Look at the destruction they have wreaked in the former Yugoslavia, in Ukraine, in Georgia and South Ossetia, in Africa, in Afghanistan and the Middle East. The American people were too brainwashed by lies and by political impotence to do anything about it, and Washington’s vassals in Europe, UK, Canada, Australia, and Japan had to pretend that this policy of international murder was ‘bringing freedom and democracy.’
“The crazed filth that controls US foreign policy is capable of defending US hegemony with nuclear weapons. The neoconservatives must be removed from power, arrested, and put on international trial for their horrendous war crimes before they defend their hegemony with Armageddon.
“Neoconservatives and their allies in the military/security complex make audacious use of false flag attacks. These evil people are capable of orchestrating a false flag attack that propels the US and Russia to war.”
See Roberts’ column here.
Plus, Christians around the world (especially in the Middle East, Northern Africa, and Eastern Europe) are not hypnotized by Christian Zionists such as John Hagee. Here is a sample of the numerous pieces of communication that I often receive from Christians in these regions:
“I grew up in an Evangelical pastor’s house in Nigeria, reading the fallacies of Mr. Scofield’s ‘Bible’ teaching the false doctrines of dispensations. By the Grace of God I know better now.
“The current State of Israel is a nation based on the accursed Talmudic doctrines of the Pharisees [exactly right].”
This Middle Eastern Christian goes on to say, “Vladimir Putin is a man of God, who knows these people and their hate for our Lord Jesus and for Christians.
“God forbid those Obama-and-Netanyahu-rented bearded barbarians called ‘moderate rebels,’ Al Nustra, Al Qaeda, and ISIS enter the city of Damascus! Our Christian brothers and sisters would all be annihilated, raped, and forcefully converted to Islam, with the support of USA, NATO, and Israel.”
(Name and location withheld by this author)
Go outside the westernized Christian world and the believers that I have communicated with almost universally echo the Christian man’s sentiments above. Then again, they have not been indoctrinated by the teachings of dispensationalism and Christian Zionism.
Have American Christians not noticed that ISIS doesn’t attack Israel? Gee. I wonder why not. If ISIS is the mortal enemy of Israel, why don’t we hear about these terrorists attacking Israel? In truth, Israel is often a safe haven for ISIS terrorists, providing supplies and medical care for wounded ISIS warriors. Again, the Israeli Mossad, along with America’s CIA, and Saudi Arabia’s special forces helped create–and continue to maintain–ISIS.
The “crazed American neoconservatives” that Paul Craig Roberts refers to would be impotent without the massive support they receive from evangelical Christians throughout the United States. Pray tell, what will these Christians in America say to their brothers and sister in Christ from Iraq, Syria, Palestine, etc., when they stand side-by-side at the judgment bar of God? It is the massive support for war in the Middle East by evangelical Christians in the United States that is forcing our brothers and sisters in Christ there into exile, causing increased persecution and torture among them, and killing thousands and thousands of them. Not to mention the torture and martyrdom of our Christian friends in the home of America’s great “ally,” Saudi Arabia. That is a future scene I shudder to think about!
There is a war on terror going on alright; but just who are the real terrorists?

PRAYER IS NOT ILLEGAL
By Coach Dave Daubenmire
October 22, 2015
“Well, there you go again.” That is what Ronald Reagan said to Jimmy Carter 35 years ago in the 1980 Presidential debate.
Perhaps it would be better to quote Yogi Berra who famously said “It’s like déjà vu all over again.” I’ve seen this movie before. I’ve been down this road. I’ve seen this song and dance before. Been there, done that!
Those are all quotes that I could use to explain what I am feeling in my heart as I watch yet another Christian coach get in trouble for praying with his football team. This time it isJoe Kennedy from the Seattle, Washington area who has drawn the ire of the ‘Prayer Police.’
It ticks me off. Not the fact that the God-haters are throwing their weight around, but that we are letting them get away with it. I’ve lived this life. I’ve played this game. I watched them huff and puff and threaten to blow the house down.
I went through the same thing back in 1997. I was sued by the anti-America, Christ-hating ACLU for praying with our teams in Ohio. Google it; you’ll find all kinds of propaganda spewed by the lying scumbags insinuating that I violated the rights of my players. Go ahead and read it. It’s all B.S. They are master deceivers.
Let me give it to you with a little punch; I am sick and tired of the reruns and the same old, tired game plan that our side rolls out. Here’s the truth: There is no law against praying anywhere. There cannot be a law. The right to freely express one’s faith is an unalienable right. Unalienable means CANNOT be taken away. It’s like skin color, or height, or dare I say it, sexual orientation. You is what you is and it cannot be changed. (I spoke that way so the Christ-haters can accuse me of being ignorant.) That is what unalienable means.
The right to pray is unalienable. The First Amendment calls it “free exercise.” The God-haters (and their cops) like to point us to the “establishment clause”, but “establishment” and “free exercise” are connected by “or”. Sort of like love and marriage used to “go together like a horse and carriage” you can’t have one without the other. You still remember when marriage was marriage, don’t you?
The courts and their legal miscreants have separated the terms. Establishment doesn’t trump free exercise. Coach Kennedy and every kid in that school has the right to freely pray if they so desire. Free exercise cannot be inhibited by lawyers or judges. If it is restricted, it is not “free” exercise. Technically only Congress can take away the right to pray, and they are expressly forbidden to do so. In case you’re interested, here is the pertinent section of the First Amendment:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”
Saying a prayer after a football game does not establish a religion. Only Congress can do that…but they can’t. Coach Kennedy and the players are engaging in “free exercise.” If Congress can’t establish a religion, how can a school or a measly old coach establish one?
Only in America, with our un-Godly, un-righteous courts, could such a charade have been foisted upon us. There is no separation between the church and the state. They just tell us that there is and then they use that to dredge our children through the cesspool of secular humanism.
Free exercise means free exercise. Coach Kennedy can pray or not pray. The same is true with every one of his players. Free exercise! Not ACLU enforced “disestablishment” of Christianity.
Where are the churches? WHERE ARE THE PASTORS? Where are the Christian lawyers who will expose the lie that courts can’t make laws? Why do we follow such foolishness? It is time that somebody, somewhere told the courts and the ACLU to go pound sand. www.defytyrants.com
Christians pay for the schools, yet Christian prayers are not permitted. All across the fruited plain, Islam is being invited into the schools with Halal meals and prayer rooms. Is it just me, or is there no separation between Islam and state? We could ask Hussein Obama, but then again we know where he kneels on the issue.
Since the 1947 Everson v Board of Education opinion, we have been sold a lie.
Religious liberty is absolute in America. If the government can inhibit the mention of God, then government has inserted itself ABOVE God. That has been the Christ-haters plan all along. They have used that lie to run Christianity out of the Public Square.
There is no separation between the church and state. Prayer in schools and Bible reading in schools are not unlawful. The posting of the 10 Commandments violates no law. Abortion has never been made legal. Homosexual sodomy is still a crime. Homosexual marriage can never be legal because it violates all Natural and Christian laws.
Courts cannot make law. They merely offer opinions. Christian values have been removed from America by tyrannical courts.
Coach Kennedy can pray. His players can pray. The school board can pray. The band can pray. The parents can pray. The bus driver can pray. Free exercise of prayer is UNALIENABLE!
It’s déjà vu all over again. How long will we allow ourselves to be controlled by the man behind the curtain?
COURTS CANNNOT MAKE LAWS!
What a bunch of misguided sheep we are.

Dave Daubenmire is a veteran 35 year high school football coach who was spurred to action when attacked and sued by the ACLU in the late 1990â€™s for praying with his high school football team. After a two year battle for his 1st amendment rights, the ACLU relented and offered coach an out of court settlement.
Challenging the “church of the Status Quo”, Pass The Salt Ministries is calling Christians to wake up and engage the culture. By taking the fight to the enemy, Coach Daubenmire has become a recognizable voice in the media as he is an unashamed, articulate, apologist for the Christian worldview. A popular, high-energy speaker, Coach Daubenmire’s motivational lectures, laced with powerful and relevant Scripture, is challenging Americans all across the country.
Thanks coach, It’s good to see someone besides myself still knows the real definition of UNALIENABLE! The education and media industry have done a great job of polluting the English dictionary, and the minds of our fellow Americans. There will soon come a time when our fellow Americans will support those who come to kill us, and for my part, I welcome it! There is not enough grit left in our country to stand up and fight back, and the shame I feel for them is too much to bear. At 75 there is just too much despair to deal with.

Once again, world leaders, climate scientists, environmentalists and socialists will be gathering in Paris, France, between November 30 and December 11, 2015, to discuss obtaining a world agreement on the reduction of green house gases in what is called a “Conference of the Parties”, or COP21. Their goal is to limit global temperature increases to less than 2o Centigrade above pre-industrial levels.
The basic premise is that the increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere is causing global warming and man is emitting more CO2 into the atmosphere than would be there naturally, therefore man is guilty and must be punished by severely limiting the very energy that has catapulted man out of the dark ages. This false premise is being acted upon in spite of theoverwhelming evidence that CO2 levels have risen over the last 17 years, but world temperatures have remained flat. So the nexus between rising CO2 levels and a corresponding rise in world temperatures is a ghost that isn’t there.
The cost for this conference has been budgeted at just under $200,000,000, or around 170,000,000 Euros. The American taxpayer is going to pick up a bunch of this cost. But rest assured in this “Conference of the Parties”, you aren’t one of the privileged parties and you won’t be represented there.
What the conference won’t tell you is the Trillions of Dollars the CO2 emission limits and the Cap and Trade Ponzi Scheme will cost the people of the planet, but more importantly the giant hit that Americans will feel in their wallets and their jobs for a mirage created out of thin air by radical environmentalists to subjugate the people’s of the world.
Since the Kyoto Protocol 1997 (COP3), world governments have been trying desperately to convince the world populations that man-caused global warming is one of the greatest threats to mankind (a bold faced lie) and if world governments don’t come to an agreement to address this threat and then act on the proposed solutions, we are all doomed to drowning, starvation and the deaths of large portions of the world population, mostly in poorer nations.
Even the current Pope has added his two cents worth of opinion to this global warming debate and warned world leaders that they must act now. What the Hell does the Pope know about the made-as-instructed pseudo science of man-caused global warming? Notice that we don’t use “Climate Change.” Those two words are a fraud and were ginned up to dupe the masses.
Let’s forget for a moment that the science of global warming and CO2 forcing are totally unsettled and in fact recent studies have shown that CO2 is not the great global warming agent the IPCC and other climate scientists say it is. Instead, let’s look at the real objectives (agenda) of world governments and environmentalists to force world populations (mostly Americans) to endure and suffer the real hardships that limits to CO2 emissions and Cap and Trade will bring.
To see a window into those objectives and the real agenda of the Paris Conference and the FRAUD that is “Climate Change”, all we need do is read the public statements that noted environmentalists, socialists and politicians have made about bringing CO2 emission limits and Cap and Trade to all the world’s peoples, but mostly to the citizens of the United States since America is truly the great Satan in the eyes of environmentalists and socialists. Iran does not hold the singular mindset on that score.
Here are some samples of those public statements that paint an entirely different picture that world governments are telling us through their propaganda and global-warming fear mongering:
“We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts… Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.” – Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports
“Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.” – Sir John Houghton, first chairman of IPCC“
“It doesn’t matter what is true; it only matters what people believe is true.” – Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace (EDITOR’S NOTE: Hitler strongly believed in this axiom and used it to great effect.)
“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” – Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation
“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony, climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” -Christine Stewart, Former Canadian Minister of the Environment. (EDITOR’S NOTE: This IS the real mission of Climate Change and limiting CO2 emissions.)
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” – Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Programme
“A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.” – Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies
“The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US.” – Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund
“Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.” – Professor Maurice King
“We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.” – David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!
“My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.” -Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!
“A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.” – United Nations, Global Biodiversity Assessment
“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable.” – Maurice Strong, Rio Earth Summit
“Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.” – David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club
“Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective.” Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI,
NOW DO YOU GET IT? What we have portrayed here in this collection of public statements by mostly environmentalists is the collective mindset of the environmental and socialist crowds and climate scientists, all across the planet. They have convinced world government’s, including the U. S. and especially President Obama, that the threat is so real and so imminent that action must be taken now or irreversible consequences will envelope the globe, all the while discounting the fact that man-caused global warming is unsettled science and that back in the 1970’s (40 years ago) these same scientists, environmentalists, socialists and world governments were warning us of the dire consequences of “man-caused global cooling.” Why should we believe them now?
(see: this article)
But limiting CO2 emissions, get-rich Cap and Trade schemes and alternative energy sources are not about saving the planet from man-caused global warming. It is all about social and environmental justice, a United Nations and now an American government policy. These Climate Change initiatives are all about radically controlling the populations of planet earth under a world government, to save the planet from the scourge, nay the virus, of mankind and to bring America to the level of a third-world nation.
The real scam is that Americans will be required to bear the brunt of CO2 emission limits while China produces twice the amount of CO2 that America produces and gets off scot-free.
In just 22 years, China has increased its CO2 emissions by 4 times. In contrast, America has reduced its emissions in that same period of time, but Americans must suffer more, because we are so rich, decadent and glutinous.
(Source:UN Climate Change Cenference)
China has no intentions of stopping the rapid rise in its economy that has led it to become the second largest economy in the world, mostly fueled by the energy of coal and oil and the American consumer.
It has been reported that China builds one new coal-fired power plant every week. America is sending its vast resources of coal to China to fuel those power plants. So America is aiding and abetting China’s CO2 and pollutant emissions while shooting itself in the foot with CO2 emission limits.
What makes anyone think that China, the largest producer of CO2 and pollutants on the planet, will roll back what they have accomplished in a few decades and return their people to abject poverty?
But then who cares ladies and gentlemen? The die is cast and Americans will get CO2 emission limits and Cap and Trade whether they like it or not and that will make Al Gore and others in the Cap and Trade business, infinitely wealthy. We got Obama Care in spite of overwhelming objections and not a single Republican vote. The Globalists, moneychangers and the Democrats now control our air, water, land, money, energy, transportation, marriage, reproduction and health care. What’s left for them to control? Nothing, except maybe a license to have children!
Many states, including Washington, Oregon and California, have already implemented strict CO2 emission limits. It doesn’t make any difference that it is all a scam and a lie to implement global government. If Americans have to pay a little more or lose jobs, so what? After all, we are guilty, aren’t we? Life is good in America. What’s all the fuss anyway? We can afford it. We’re rich.
What’s all the fuss? We’ll tell you what’s all the fuss! The fraud of man-caused global warming is just another nail in the coffin of America’s demise as a free and sovereign nation, along with the Trans-Pacific Partnership, NAFTA, CAFTA and all the other so-called free trade agreements that give American workers the shaft while exploiting cheap international labor on the path to one-world-order.
Sadly, most Americans who read this will just roll their eyes, go back to thumb-punching their Iphones and anticipate the next episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” Others will march in the streets and yell out that “Black Lives Matter”, while promoting death to cops. Others will lobby government for more free stuff that socialist Presidential Candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are promising, but can’t deliver.
America, a once-proud free and sovereign nation, lives no more. The world forces of global government have won. Or have they? It’s up to the American people to see that world forces don’t win, that is if they care.
If you still have doubts about man-caused global warming, we encourage you to read our article published in the Seattle Times, as a guest editorial, entitled, “Global Warming, A Farce.” The article is 10 years old, but its indisputable logic is timeless. The reader will find a great deal more indisputable logic on the NARLO website.

“The ordinary man is passive. Within a narrow circle, home life, and perhaps the trade unions or local politics, he feels himself master of his fate. But otherwise he simply lies down and lets things happen to him.” – George Orwell [Eric Arthur Blair] (1903-1950) British author Source: Inside the Whale, 1940
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

The global elite have never been closer to their goal of a united world. Thanks to a series of interlocking treaties and international agreements, the governance of this planet is increasingly becoming globalized and centralized, but most people don’t seem alarmed by this at all. In the past 30 days, we have seen some of the biggest steps toward a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion that we have ever witnessed, but these events have sparked very little public discussion or debate. So please share this article with as many people as you can. We need to wake people up about this before it is too late.
From September 25th to September 27th, the United Nations launched a “new universal agenda” for humanity. Those are not my words, they actually come directly out of the core document for this new agenda. The Pope traveled to New York City to give the address that kicked off this conference, thus giving his considerable endorsement to this new plan. Virtually every nation on the entire planet willingly signed up for the 17 goals that are included in this plan, but this stunning turn of events made very few international headlines.
The United Nations is promising that if we all work together that we can turn our planet into some kind of “utopia”, but the truth is that all of this talk about “unity” masks a very insidious agenda. The following comes from a recent piece by Paul McGuire, the author of a groundbreaking new book entitled “The Babylon Code”…
The UN is not asking permission, but issuing a command that the entire planet will commit to 17 sustainable development goals and 169 sustainable development targets designed to radically transform our world by 2030. The UN 2030 plan promoted by the Pope will advance Agenda 21 on steroids. Through a controlled media the mass populations will be told that this is all about saving the environment and “ending poverty.” But that is not the true agenda of Agenda 21. The true agenda of Agenda 21 is to establish a global government, global economic system, and global religion. When UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon spoke of “a dream of a world of peace and dignity for all” this is no different than when the Communists promised the people a “workers paradise.”
For the general population, “the 2030 Agenda” has been rebranded as “the global goals”. On September 26th, some of the biggest names in the music world (including Beyonce) promoted these new “global goals” at the “Global Citizen Festival” that was held in Central Park. And you can watch a YouTube video where some of the most famous names on the entire planet urge all of us to get behind these new “global goals” right here.
None of this is by accident. We are being trained to think of ourselves as “global citizens” that belong to a “global community”. Decades ago, most Americans would have been up in arms over something like this. But now most people just seem to accept these changes passively. Very powerful secret societies and international organizations have been moving us in this direction for a very long time, and most Americans simply have no idea what is happening. Here is more from Paul McGuire…
The United Nations is a de facto global government and does not rule by the “consent of the governed.” The United Nations is a global government to which American politicians of both parties have surrendered our Constitutional rights. If you look at the Republican Presidential debates you see the vast majority of those running are “bought men and women.” They are there to do the bidding of their true masters, the international banking families and their interlocking secret societies. If a candidate has a different set of beliefs than the “Orwellian group think” which constitutes domestic and foreign policy, he is allowed to go only so far.
Who are these powerful elite groups and the secret societies that run them? As we extensively document in our new book, The Babylon Code, co-authored by this author and Troy Anderson, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated investigative journalist, there exists a very real network of semi-secretive and secret groups. Groups like The Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, Royal Institute of International Affairs, United Nations, Club of Rome, The Bilderberg Group, and others control presidents, prime ministers, media networks, politicians, CEO’s, and entire nations. You will almost never hear any substantive analysis by the media, which is controlled by these groups nor of attempts at holding them accountable by governments around the world.
Another way that our planet is being “united” is through the use of international trade agreements.
The ultimate goal is for the entire world to become a “single market” with uniform laws, rules and regulations. But as we merge our economy with the rest of the globe, the United States has been losing tens of thousands of businesses and millions of jobs as the monolithic corporations that now dominate our economy shift production to areas where labor is much cheaper. This is absolutely destroying the middle class, but very few people seem to care.
Negotiations for one of the biggest international trade treaties that the world has ever seen recently concluded. The Trans-Pacific Partnership, also known as “Obamatrade”, would represent a giant step toward a truly unified global economy. The following is an excerpt from one of my previous articles…
We have just witnessed one of the most significant steps toward a one world economic system that we have ever seen. Negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership have been completed, and if approved it will create the largest trading bloc on the planet. But this is not just a trade agreement. In this treaty, Barack Obama has thrown in all sorts of things that he never would have been able to get through Congress otherwise. And once this treaty is approved, it will be exceedingly difficult to ever make changes to it. So essentially what is happening is that the Obama agenda is being permanently locked in for 40 percent of the global economy.
The United States, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam all intend to sign on to this insidious plan. Collectively, these nations have a total population of about 800 million people and a combined GDP of approximately 28 trillion dollars.
And do you want to know who pushed really hard to give Obama fast track negotiating authority so that these negotiations could be brought to a successful conclusion?
It was the traitorous Republican leadership in Congress. They did everything that they could to pave the way for Obamatrade.
We are also seeing some stunning moves in the direction of a one world religion.
In recent years, you may have noticed that it has become very trendy to say that all religions are just different paths to the same God. In fact, many prominent religious leaders are now openly proclaiming that the two biggest faiths on the entire planet, Christianity and Islam, worship the exact same deity.
For example, just consider what the Pope is saying publicly on this matter. The following is an extended excerpt from one of my recent articles on End of the American Dream…
What Pope Francis had to say at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan has received very little coverage by the mainstream media, but it was exceedingly significant. The following is how he began his address…
“I would like to express two sentiments for my Muslim brothers and sisters: Firstly, my greetings as they celebrate the feast of sacrifice. I would have wished my greeting to be warmer. My sentiments of closeness, my sentiments of closeness in the face of tragedy. The tragedy that they suffered in Mecca.”
“In this moment, I give assurances of my prayers. I unite myself with you all. A prayer to almighty god, all merciful.”
He did not choose those words by accident. In Islam, Allah is known as “the all-merciful one”. If you doubt this, just do a Google search.
And this is not the first time Pope Francis has used such language. For instance, the following comes from remarks that he made during his very first ecumenical meeting as Pope…
“I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.
The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.”
Pope Francis clearly believes that Christians and Muslims worship the exact same God. And so that helps to explain why he authorized “Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran” at the Vatican for the first time ever back in 2014.
What is happening is undeniable.
We are steamrolling toward a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion.
Of course we will not get there overnight. It is going to take some time, and there are going to be quite a few bumps along the way. In fact, I believe that our planet will experience an extreme amount of chaos before we actually get there.
But every major crisis will be used as an excuse to advance this agenda. Virtually every solution that the elite offer us will involve more globalization and more centralization. We will be told that all of our problems will be solved if humanity will just come together in unity.
For some, the goal of a “united planet” where we are all working together to eradicate things like poverty, war and disease makes all the sense in the world.
For others, a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion would simply mean setting the stage for “one world tyranny”.
My ashes will be spread by the winds of a free world before this comes to past. And if it should come tomorrow, I will light the match and burn alive before I participate in this despicable display of human ignorance. I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY EVERY SINGLE PERSON ON THIS PLANET IS NOT RAISING HELL.

Peace and serenity are not coming to our world. Turmoil and revolution lie up ahead!
WE THE PEOPLE – LEARN TO ACCEPT
A ONE DOCTRINE CONSTITUTION!
DO ALL THINGS IN CONFORMITY WITH
HOW YOU WANT THEM DONE TO YOU.
By Nelson Hultberg
A revolutionary political earthquake lies up ahead. The popularity of Trump foretells this. We’re feeling the tremors right now. But the feeling of revulsion for the Washington establishment is not yet clear enough and widespread enough in the minds of the people to manifest in a revolutionary “break point.” But I believe such a lack of widespread clarity is the lull before the storm. And the storm is coming in the form of a pervasive economic crash that will shake up Americans in a way they have never before experienced.
It is then that the needed clarity will be achieved. It is in times of great crisis that people are susceptible to a more truthful view of things, and will be more willing to take revolutionary action. If freedom is to be restored in America, it will be at this time when the establishment way of doing things for the past century – political centralization and Keynesian monetary theory – comes under suspicion as highly flawed ideology and political tyranny. It is here when all is chaos and despair that the coming break point will be reached and a chance to restore freedom will be available to us.
When the crisis really hits, when the dollar is dropping like a rock in a dry well, when tanks are in the streets to restore order in scores of new Fergusons and Baltimores pockmarking the country, when unemployment hits 25% and no one believes the BLS lies of 5% anymore, when the Feds are snooping in the skies above with thousands of drones over our own country, when a smarmy President spews out still another unctuous speech from the White House about how “government is here to help you,” then the breaking point will be reached in the minds of the American people.
This profound “break point” is coming to America as sure as the tides wash in to our shorelines. Our stock market is like the Titanic on April 15, 1912. It is living on borrowed time, and all the King’s men and horses are not going to be able to put this Keynesian Humpty back together again. The coming economic crash will make 2008 look like a walk in the park. Humans’ penchant for the “normalcy bias” is keeping us all in a state of dangerous apathy. It’s the same mindset that prevailed on Wall Street in 1929, before Robespierre and the Jacobins in 1793, ahead of Lenin in 1917.
Two Profound Choices
The coming tumult will bring us one of two profound choices. There will either be a rebirth of liberty and a harkening back to the principles that built our Republic prior to 1913, or there will be a plunge into a neo-fascist dictatorship in which we lose our freedom totally.
Which will it be? It all depends upon whether Americans still have that love of liberty dwelling in them. I believe they do, but if I’m wrong, then a thousand year Dark Age awaits us. We certainly have major hurdles to overcome if freedom is to be saved. And the primary hurdle is whether we can influence enough Americans between now and the coming crash to be able to control political policy as we are climbing out of the crash.
This is the all-important time period – the aftermath of the Great Depressionary Collapse – when the country is rethinking its past policies and evaluating what role they had in the collapse. This is when it will be possible to implement radical ideas for the restoration of freedom.
This is when libertarians, conservatives, and independents will be ready to break politically from the Darth Vaders of Washington who have been keeping Americans so submissive for the past 80 years. Then is when a charismatic leader will appear to offer the people a way back to sanity, a way back to the Republic.
I believe Americans still possess that love of liberty which would spawn such a restoration. But they will have to be informed as to what direction to move in an inspirational way that reaches millions of them. This cannot be done via conventional politics working within the Democrat-Republican establishment. The establishment is the problem, not the solution. What will be needed will be a revolutionary way of thinking outside the box of Democrat-Republican conformity.
When the tumult is raging all around us, this is when we as a country will have to make our choice. Do we capitulate to the collectivists that rule our politics and economics in Washington, in the schools, and in the media? Do we obey their vision and move the country toward a regional government as a prelude to a One-World government? Do we centralize our banks into a World Banking system of fiat money? Do we further implement liberalism’s neo-fascist political forms, but continue to fallaciously call such a system “capitalism” so as to ease it into the public conscience as a permissible way to govern?
Or do we move to restore the principles of freedom that built America – strictly limited government, federalism, and a literal interpretation of the Constitution? Do we begin to purge the countless “special privileges” with which our social welfare state maintains its power?
Will conservatives, libertarians, and independents be able to influence policy enough to reject the entire idea of Keynesian economics and restore a sound monetary system with a role for gold? Will we be swamped with the egalitarians and their shrieks for more wealth redistribution, or will we enact a flat tax that supports “equal rights,” and eventually repeal the 16th Amendment and abolish the IRS? Will we continue pursuing the insane militaristic world hegemony of the neocons with trillion dollar military budgets and wars that dominate our foreign policy? Or will we recognize that such insanity is a great part of what bankrupted us and brought about the crash?
Freedom or Fascism
It is in the aftermath of the coming crash that the “break point” will take place. And it will manifest in one or the other of the above denouements. Freedom or Fascism will come to America. Which will it be?
If it is to be freedom, then it will only happen if millions of patriots unify around an independent political candidate that breaks from the Democrat-Republican monopoly in the way that Ross Perot broke in 1992. Only this time, he must stand clearly for freedom instead of the “vague reformism” that Perot stood for. AFR has published an essay, Salvation of America, that outlines how this scenario can be brought about. It points the way toward a profound realignment of today’s political paradigm.
Peace and serenity are not coming to our world. Turmoil and revolution lie up ahead. We as a people will be confronted with a huge and Homeric choice that will determine the fate of mankind for centuries. Let us hope that we as patriots have made our case well.

DIVERSITY AND MULTICULTURALISM
October 17th, 2015 by olddog
By WENDELL H. WOODMAN
President Barack Obama has become the worst nightmare of the Secret Service.
Despite heartfelt pleas from residents of Roseburg, Oregon to stay away and let them bury their murdered loved ones in peace, the ignorer-in-chief tapped your treasury for millions of dollars, packed up his bodyguards and their tons of paraphernalia and crossed the country to visit with the families of the nine dead and nine injured who got mowed down by serial killer Chris Harper Mercer at Umpqua Community College on October 1.
Obama would not listen. What he faced when his never-leave-home-without-it helicopter, Marine One, arrived at the little timber town 180 miles south of Portland was an absolutely livid armed greeting committee. The crowd was not only bearing “Obama Unwelcome” and “Go Back to Kenya” signs, but holsters filled with firearms.
Organizers of the protest that drew thousands of empathizers on social media had a plea of their own: although you “have the right to carry what you wish,” they advised, better to bring a handgun than a rifle. So even at the risk of driving the Secret Service nuts, many of them did just that.
Bruce Rester, a retired truck driver wearing a holstered handgun strapped across his chest, said, “Everybody should carry a gun. An armed society is a polite society.”
If the president had sent an advance team, as a real politician would, he’d have had a scouting report on the lion’s den he was entering. But listening and thinking are two things this president doesn’t dabble in.
Before responders had finished the body count the day of the shootings, Obama was on TV making excuses for the killer. Putting on his angry mask the president recalled, “As I said just a few months ago, and I said a few months before that, and I said each time we see one of these mass shootings, our thoughts and prayers are not enough. It does not capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should feel. And it does nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America.”
Yet for all his bluster and executive orders, Obama has not been able to get rid of the Second Amendment — your right to keep and bear arms.
The Los Angeles Times reported how Don Moody, an aircraft machinist, drove five hours from Seattle with a sign that read, “The Second Amendment Protects the First.” Moody said. “We don’t want quantity of guns. We want quality of guns – in the right hands at the right time. I believe the government and the country are going in exactly the wrong direction.”
Warned of Obama’s visit on Friday, protesters of his sacrilege began arriving around sunrise. One business owner said, “It’s our God-given right to protect ourselves.” She wanted the president to understand that.
The funeral corteges were still daily events when Obama thrust himself into the maelstrom to promote national disarmament. Some protesters carried Gadsden (“Don’t Tread on Me”) flags and “Obama Go Home” signs.
Rick Breen, a retired Army veteran, said he was there to support Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin, who resented Obama’s visit. Breen said he wanted “to let Obama know he’s not welcome here.” He added, “I only wish a student had been armed. We could have stopped that murderer in his tracks.”
The cost of Obama’s visit to Roseburg should be reckoned down to the last penny by a House Select Committee on Executive Stupidity. (We can’t afford Michelle’s opulent excursions any more either.) If congress won’t impeach him, the least they can do is keep him under lock and key. They can do that by shutting off his allowance.
The Obama regime has armed itself to the teeth. As watchdog “Open the Books” founder Adam Andrzejewski recently reported, EPA’s 200 “special agents” are not only armed with $75 million a year for criminal enforcement, but millions more just spent for “guns, body armor, camouflage equipment, unmanned aircraft, amphibious assault ships, radar and night-vision gear and other military-style weaponry and surveillance.” The air and water police!
Like any ambitious tyrant, this disarmament president means to confiscate every gun so you can’t defend yourself and your family when his “community organizers” and political goons come calling with their boxcars and AK-47s to transport you to New Auschwitz, where you will be treated to a shower before you are allowed into the crematorium.
Now is the time for all good men to come to the ruination of the despotism thrust upon them — by gunfire or whatever means necessary.
Australian Gun Law Update;
Here’s a thought to warm some of your hearts….
From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia
Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real
figures from Down Under. It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own
government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria…..alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady
decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in ‘successfully ridding Australian society of guns….’
You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note Americans, before it’s too late!

More and more states are choosing to not prohibit law-abiding people from carrying sidearms.
Currently, there are only 19 states that directly ban the carrying of a concealed weapon on college campuses. Those states are: California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Wyoming.
In 23 states, the decision to allow or prohibit the carrying of concealed weapons on campus is made by each college or university individually. And, of course, given the liberal makeup of most college and university administrations, the vast majority of them prohibit students and faculty from carrying firearms on campus. Those states are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.
“Because of recent state legislation and court rulings, eight states now have provisions allowing the carrying of concealed weapons on public postsecondary campuses. These states are Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin. During the 2015 legislative session, Texas’ legislature passed a bill permitting concealed weapons on campus and making it the eighth state to permit guns on campus. The legislation will take effect in August 2016.
“Utah remains the only state to have statute specifically naming public colleges and universities as public entities that do not have the authority to ban concealed carry, and thus, all 10 public institutions in Utah allow concealed weapons on their property. Recently passed Kansas legislation creates a provision that colleges and universities cannot prohibit concealed carry unless a building has ‘adequate security measures.’ Governing boards of the institutions, however, may still request an exemption to prohibit for up to four years. Wisconsin legislation creates a provision that colleges and universities must allow concealed carry on campus grounds. Campuses can, however, prohibit weapons from campus buildings if signs are posted at every entrance explicitly stating that weapons are prohibited. All University of Wisconsin system campuses and technical community college districts are said to be putting this signage in place. Legislation passed in Mississippi in 2011 creates an exception to allow concealed carry on college campuses for those who have taken a voluntary course on safe handling and use of firearms by a certified instructor.
“Recent court cases have also overturned some long-standing systemwide bans of concealed carry on state college and university campuses. In March 2012, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that the University of Colorado’s policy banning guns from campus violates the state’s concealed carry law, and in 2011 the Oregon Court of Appeals overturned the Oregon University System’s ban of guns on campuses, allowing those with permits to carry concealed guns on the grounds of these public colleges (Oregon’s State Board of Higher Education retained its authority to have internal policies for certain areas of campus, and adopted a new policy in 2012 that bans guns in campus buildings). In both cases, it was ruled that state law dictates only the legislature can regulate the use, sale and possession of firearms, and therefore these systems had overstepped their authority in issuing the bans. See the ‘Guns on Campus: Campus Action,’ page for more information on these rulings, board policies and other campuses that allow concealed carry on their grounds.”

Guns On Campus: Overview
In the retail business world, most companies have a policy stating that they will abide by State and local laws relating to the carrying of firearms. Notable exceptions to this practice are Starbucks, Whole Foods, IKEA, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, AMC Theaters, Cinemark Theaters, California Pizza Kitchen, Toys R Us, Buffalo Wild Wings, Sonic Drive-In, Chili’s Bar & Grill, Wendy’s, Jack In The Box, Applebee’s, Waffle House, Chuck E. Cheese’s, Costco, Jo-Ann Stores, Simon Shopping Malls, Sterling Jewelers (Kay, Jared, Shaw and others), T.G. I. Friday’s, and Walgreens –which have a corporate policy prohibiting the carrying of a firearm on their property. Of course, this list is by no means complete.
As I have said before in this column, I strongly recommend that people either refuse to do business with companies that have anti-gun policies or IGNORE corporate policies prohibiting concealed carry where State laws allow concealed carry, as did the man recently in a Charleston, South Carolina, Waffle House–and by so doing successfully defended himself and others against an armed robber.

Customer Shoots And Kills Armed Robber In Charleston Waffle House: Cops
I further recommend that, if possible, people LEAVE states that deny citizens the right to legally defend themselves. Plus, I will never understand how men and women who claim to believe in the Bill of Rights can be a police officer or sheriff’s deputy in a State that requires them to enforce laws that forbid citizens from being armed. Whether they understand it or not, these officers and deputies are facilitating police-state societies. Sheriffs, especially, are in a position to interpose the authority of their office to protect the constitutional rights of the citizens of their counties. And that is exactly what they should be doing.
What only the most radical anti-Second Amendment zealots fail to understand is guns in the hands of good guys is hands down the biggest deterrent to crime that there is. Gun-free zones are nothing more than open invitations to would-be killers to target those institutions or places of business.
As professor John Lott notes, “Since at least 1950, all but two public mass shootings in America have taken place where general citizens are banned from carrying guns. In Europe, there have been no exceptions. Every mass public shooting has occurred in a gun-free zone. And Europe is no stranger to mass shootings. It has been host to three of the six worst K-12 school shootings and by far the worst mass public shooting perpetrated by a single individual.”
Professor Lott goes on to say, “The diary of the Batman movie theater killer, James Holmes, was finally released just a few months ago. He decided against attacking an airport because of the ‘substantial security.’ Out of seven theaters showing the Batman movie premiere within 20 minutes of the suspect’s apartment in 2012, only one banned permitted concealed handguns. That’s the one he attacked.
“Or take a couple of cases from last year. Elliot Rodger, who fatally shot three people in Santa Barbara, Calif., explained his reasoning in his 141-page ‘manifesto.’ He ruled out various targets because he worried that someone with a gun would cut short his killing spree. Justin Bourque shot to death three people in Canada. His Facebook page made fun of gun bans, with pictures of defenseless victims explaining to killers that guns are prohibited.
“Americans seem to understand these points. A June Rasmussen Reports survey found that 68 percent feel safer in neighborhoods where guns are allowed, while just 22 percent would feel less safe. A Gallup poll last December found by a whopping 63 to 30 percent margin that Americans thought guns in their homes made them safer.
“If you don’t think deterrence works, ask yourself if you would post a sign in front of your home saying it is a ‘gun-free zone.’ It’s very likely that such signs aren’t going to be going up in any neighborhoods soon.”
See the report here:
Would-Be Killers Target Gun-Free Zones
This is a fact: good guys packing send bad guys packing–sometimes all the way to the Promised Land. Amen. So be it. It’s called the law of sowing and reaping.
I further recommend that Christians find another church if the one they are attending has a pastor who does not ENTHUSIASTICALLY support the right to keep and bear arms. Such a pastor is completely void of even a basic understanding of Biblical and Natural Law. By his lack of support for the Natural right of self-defense, he is putting the lives of his congregants in danger and helping to facilitate those who would terrorize and oppress us. How can Christians tolerate such a pastor?
I also encourage readers to actively assist efforts in your home State to legalize the right of law-abiding, adult citizens to arm themselves throughout their communities–including in schools, colleges, churches, banks, etc. For example, in my home State of Montana there is currently a petition drive underway to put a proposed State law on next year’s ballot to allow CCW permit holders to carry on school campuses. I wholeheartedly support this effort.
Momentum is on the side of the Second Amendment. This was a record-breaking summer for gun sales nationwide, and State legislatures are increasingly fed up with gun control laws that continually endanger the people of their states. And every mass shooting that takes place only serves to fuel the fire of gun rights. Gun-grabbers like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are not only on the wrong side of public opinion; they are also on the wrong side of history.
If you don’t own a handgun: BUY ONE. If you own a handgun and the laws of your State allow you to carry it: CARRY IT. If you haven’t been properly trained in the use of firearms, get that training NOW. Practice. Learn how to defend yourself and your loved ones. And if your right to self-defense is currently prohibited by the laws of your State, work like crazy to change those laws–or move to a State that recognizes your Natural right of self-defense. But to do NOTHING only makes it easier for the bad guys and harder for the good guys.

The now you see him, now you don’t Putin, reappeared on March 16 in during his meeting with Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev in the Konstantin Palace outside St. Petersburg, Russia, Monday, March 16, 2015. Why did he disappear for nearly two weeks? How has Putin changed in the following seven months following his imposed disappearance? Since Reappearing, the world is on a clear path to World War III.
Putin’s Kidnapping and Re-Emergence with a War-Like Attitude
When Putin disappeared for 10 days, he was not answering to the Russian oligarchs. The bankers were obviously pushing Putin to be more aggressive. Why? Because the banksters from Basel (i.e. the Bank of International Settlements. Since Putin disappeared for nearly two weeks in March of 2015, he has come out swinging for the fences and the world is on a collision course for World War III.
The China Factor
In the past two articles, I detailed how China’s aggressiveness in the South China Sea is tied directly to a Chinese assault upon the US economy, through inhibiting trade with nations associated with the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). Further, through the construction of militarized artificial Islands in the South China Sea, Taiwan’s ouimport/export financial health is imperiled as well. Taiwan represents about 7% of America’s GDP with regard to total trade volume. As was documented in the previous article, China’s intended disruption of US trade, through the TPP, could impact total US trade by as much as 40%. In short, China is engaged in a total economic attack upon the United States.
Russia and China Are Employing Simultaneously Imposed Attacks Against American Hegemony
Briefly, and as previously discussed, World War II will be fought over the dominance/decline of the Petrodollar. For over three years, the forces at the Federal Reserve have tried to devise a justifiable means to invade Syria and Iran because they were non-participants in the Petrodollar scheme whereby nations had to first purchase a federal reserve note prior buying oil. Both Iraq and Libya were topped by US led coalition forces to maintain the Petrodollar. There was a time in the world when forsaking the Federal Reserve Board’s Petrodollar dominance, meant that countries got invaded and the leaders of these countries were killed. With the emergence of the BRICS, the worm has dramatically turned.
The following is a brief recounting of how Russia has checkmated the United States and as a result, the dollar is on life support.
It is no secret that Putin is attempting to restore the Soviet Union to its full glory in the same manner as existed in the 1970’s. This can best accomplished through the reunification of the old Eurasian States. The linchpin in this reconstruction of the former Soviet Union begins and ends with Ukraine. The Federal Reserve interests, still smarting from the undermining of the Petrodollar, used the CIA to ferment a coup against the Russian-friendly Ukrainian government and ousted it Moscow-friendly government. As the readers will recall the Russians retaliated by overrunning Crimea and threatening to nuke the United States over its aggressive intentions toward Syria and Iran.
Ukraine is critically important to any reunification of the Eurasian empire. In retaliation for the undermining of the Petrodollar in emanating from Syria and Iran, the CIA caused Ukraine to go into civil war. As a result, the Federal Reserve many not have fully salvaged the Petrodollar, but they prevented the rise of the former Soviet Union by creating a quagmire in Ukraine.
Russia still holds a trump card because nearly 40% of European/NATO nations’ natural gas supply (i.e. home heating oil) passes through Ukraine. Putin could blackmail these NATO nations, but NATO sent many troops to the region as a show of force.
The United States went so far as trying to entice Ukraine into joining the European Union. This would be the end of any re-emergence of the Soviet Union. For all intents and purposes, Putin was checkmated by the events in Ukraine.
The following map clearly describes the importance of Ukraine for the Russian oil interests.
The quagmire in Ukraine ties up the Russian energy industry. This is payback for the Russian disruption of the Petrodollar.
The Russo-Chinese Energy Deals
The Russians responded to the setbacks in Ukraine by forging massive energy deals with China. These deals did help to ensure the future of the Russian oil industry. However, these deals do nothing to aid Putin in the reconstruction of the former Soviet Union.
At the heart of the American economy and the Petrodollar is energy and Russia and China just cemented an agreement where they do not need the dollar. The Russia –China $400 billion energy deal, signed in May of 2014, will by 2018 have some 38 billion cubic meters of gas flow through the so-called ‘Holy Grail’ pipeline from the largest gas producer, Russia, to the largest energy user, China. This deal is many things at once: It is, of course a symbolic step in the process of decoupling hydrocarbon trading from the dollar, as it foresees payments in local currencies, rubles and yuan. It sidesteps the Petrodollar for hydrocarbon trading. Over one-third of the planet just moved away from the dollar when this recent deal was cemented.
As if the Russian-Chinese energy deal is not bad enough, the BRICS are driving a stake into the American economy as they have set up a new development and investment bank for all of the BRICS countries. The banks will be headquartered in Shanghai, China, with the first president of the bank will be from India.
The Turkey Factor
In a direct means to compensate for the loss of Ukraine as an energy hub, Russia reached out to NATO member Turkey and reached an accord to bypass Ukraine as a conduit for oil shipments.
Turkey’s gas deal, inked with Russia in the Spring of 2014, represents one more time that the grand chess master, Putin, had apparently outmaneuvered the amateur checkers player, Obama. With this gas deal, Turkey may not have formally left NATO, but make no mistake about it, Turkey had left NATO with this deal. Further, Russia could bypass Ukraine with regard to the shipment of Russian oil.
Turkey and Russia are long-time adversaries since the implementation of the Cold War and the advent of the 1947 Truman Doctrine. This gas deal looked like a staggering blow to the U.S. and NATO because Turkey has been not only a key NATO ally, but it has been the linchpin of all American efforts to bypass Russia with oil and gas pipelines. The situation caused by the Turkey-Russia gas deal was so dire, that in the event of World War III, the U.S. would be forced to destroy this pipeline. In other words, Turkey has just become a military ally with Russia.
South Stream was supposed to run through the Black Sea, Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary into Austria and points west and it attempted to counter South Stream by proposing another pipeline, called “Nabucco” which was to have linked Austria, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria with Turkey and Azerbaijan. This pipeline failed because the United States failed to secure funding for the pipeline and or a source of gas. Are you keeping a body count of the NATO allies which are going to have extreme difficulty heating their homes and businesses and are now subject to Putin’s blackmail? From a military perspective, these nations provide a buffer between Russian invasion of America’s primary NATO allies of Germany, France, Italy and the UK. Putin will now focus on seeking defectors from these four allies.
The United States/Federal Reserve avoided catastrophe because they were able exert enough pressure on Turkey to withdraw from their Russian deal. Turkey backed of this deal in July of 2015 after the CIA began to exert real pressure on Turkey.
Checkmate on Putin and his attempt at using oil to blackmail members of NATO into leaving the alliance.
Putin will not be denied his dream of one day ruling over a resurrected Soviet Union. Subsequently, Putin called Obama’s bluff and invaded Syria and now Russian/Syrian forces are preparing to force all rebels out of the country. Syria also serves as a base of operations for Russian military activity in the Middle East. If I were to hazard a guess, I believe that Putin will chase ISIS into Jordan and World War III will commence.
Russian and Chinese Strategy
It is interesting that Russia and China have adopted similar strategies with regard to simultaneously attacking American alliances which will serve to weaken the American economy. In the South China Sea, China is imperiling Taiwan’s economy through disrupting trade in the South China Sea. Further, these moves by China imperil any economic benefit by the United States participation in the TPP. On the other hand, Russia has driven a wedge into NATO, even though he was not able to kill NATO. However, Germany did come out in support of Russia’s invasion of Syria.
It is clear that Russia and China are attacking America’s alliances in preparation for WW III.
The joint Chinese/Russian strategy which seeks to weaken the US and separate her from her military and economic allies is having some effect. It is a “death by a 1000 cuts strategy”.
The United States on the other hand, has been successful in preserving its alliances and blocking the re-emergence of the Soviet Union.
At what point do these frustrations boil over and the shooting starts for real? When the US Air Force and the Russian Air Force can make visual contact between each other’s planes in Syria, it is just a matter of time until this cold war turns hot.

By LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD
It is no longer considered a brilliant or unwarranted diagnosis to conclude that Barack Hussein Obuma suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder, in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others; all usually disguising a fragile self-image that is vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
It would not be unfair, in my opinion, to speculate that Obuma may also demonstrate some characteristics of malignant narcissism, where individuals might display an increased level of hostility and sadistically undermine organizations in which they are involved, as well as dehumanize the people with whom they associate; in this case, the United States and ordinary Americans, respectively.
In government, such conduct can manifest itself as a form of antisocial behavior, camouflaged aggression, in which the formal regulations and procedures of an organization are used in both delivering and masking aggression, appearing as non-confrontational, in which the perpetrator can go unnoticed and those harmed may not even be seen as victims of aggression.
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” – Barack Obuma, October 30, 2008.
“We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” – Michelle Obuma, May 14, 2008.
If Obuma’s behavior is defined by narcissism, his motivation originates from a profound animosity towards American values and traditions. It is why he has, throughout his life, embraced Marxism and Islam, both of which have a mutual hatred of Judeo-Christian democracy and a shared belief that the United States, as the cornerstone of Western civilization, is the embodiment of evil in the world.
Obuma’s “transformation” is a euphemism for the degradation and humbling of a great nation he considers racist, oppressive, venal and dysfunctional unless properly controlled by the collectivist prescriptions of world government.
Perhaps any tendencies toward malignant narcissism that Obuma might have, his constant lying and his antipathy for the American experience can be traced to a traumatized childhood, a mother who disregarded his basic needs and ultimately abandoned him; an absent father, who was replaced by a hardcore, card-carrying communist and pornographer.
Obuma’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis was pro-Soviet, pro-Red China and wrote for Party-line publications such as the Chicago Star and the Honolulu Record; contributors to the former actually served as secret agents for Joseph Stalin. Davis argued that President Harry Truman was a fascist, racist, and imperialist, and the United States was handing West Germany back to the Nazis, while Stalin was pursuing “democracy” in East Germany and throughout the Communist Bloc. He portrayed America’s leaders as “aching for an excuse to launch a nuclear nightmare of mass murder and extermination” against the Soviets and the Chinese- as eager to end all civilization.
According to Paul Kengor, writing in The American Spectator, there are some truly remarkable similarities between the political actions of Obuma and the ideas contained in Frank Marshall Davis’ columns, such as: rejecting Winston Churchill; advocating wealth redistribution; favoring taxpayer funding of universal health care; supporting government stimulus; bashing Wall Street; trumpeting the public sector over the private sector; lambasting “excess profits”; warning God-and-gun clinging Americans about huckster preachers; seeking the political support for “social justice;” excoriating the “tentacles of big business,” bankers, big oil, corporate profits; lambasting tax cuts that “spare the rich;” singling out the “corporation executive” for not paying his “fair” share; and so on.
By the autumn of 1980, as a student at Occidental College, nineteen-year-old Obuma was already known as an ardent Marxist. Some years later he would become a friend and colleague of the America-hating, radical leftist and unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.
I have previously described the policies of the Obuma Administration as the intersection of radical ideology and incompetence.
Obuma is “incompetent” as a President in the sense that his narcissism prevents him from accepting responsibility and learning from his mistakes.Â His ideologies, namely Marxism and sympathy for Islam, compound that “incompetence” by driving him to pursue policies that run counter to the national interest and the well-being of the American people.
Sorry, but I just don’t think he’s on our side.
Lawrence Sellin, Ph.D. is a retired colonel with 29 years of service in the US Army Reserve and a veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq. Colonel Sellin is the author of “Restoring the Republic: Arguments for a Second American Revolution “. He receives email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
To the above description of the usurper in D.C., I personally believe OBUMA is guilty of sedition, treason, and many other things that can only be described by publically unacceptable elucidation. Treason is his middle name!

Sixteen days ago, President Obama and Chinese President Xi sounded as if they were moving forward in a positive manner. The only real point of contention when the two world leaders met at the White House was Taiwan. Oh, on paper, it appears that China’s dispute is with Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines. Look at the map below and make a note of what Island lies just north of the disputed area. It is Taiwan. This conflict is also about China buidling a defensive perimeter in the South China Sea and using it as a defensive perimeter, in a manner similar to what the Japanese did nearly three quarters of a century ago.
The New and Emboldened China
China is increasingly aggressive, almost to the point of forming a quasi-naval blockade in and around the disputed territories which are a point of disagreement between China, her neighbors and the United States. It is critical to keep in mind that every dispute in the region, for China, begins and ends with Taiwan and Taiwan lies just north of the disputed area. These unfolding events in the South China Sea is also about the unfolding of the new Chinese hegemony, or, the establishment of the most recent flavor of the New World Order.
A Brief History of the Conflict Between China and Taiwan
For those who don’t understand why China and Taiwan are at odds, it goes back to 1948, when Chinese communist forces, led by Mao Zedong, ousted the Chinese government under Chiang Kai Shek. The original Chinese regime fled to the Island of Formosa, now called Taiwan. Mainland China has always viewed Taiwan as a rogue state that actually belongs to the communist Chinese. Taiwan has emerged as America’s seventh most significant trading partner. An economically health Taiwan is essential to what is left of the U.S. economy. Ignoring the long-term significance of Taiwan in the South China Sea controversy is like ignoring the 800 pound gorilla in the room.
An Uneasy Peace
On September 25th, when Chinese President XI exited the White House, it appeared the two super powers had reached an uneasy, yet mutually agreed upon set of policies regarding Chinese military activities in and around the disputed territories. Below is an excerpt of President Obama’s summation of the meeting between the two Presidents.
“…We did have candid discussions on the East and South China Seas, and I reiterated the right of all countries to freedom of navigation and overflight and to unimpeded commerce. As such, I indicated that the United States will continue to sail, fly and operate anywhere that international law allows. I conveyed to President Xi our significant concerns over land reclamation, construction and the militarization of disputed areas, which makes it harder for countries in the region to resolve disagreements peacefully. And I encouraged a resolution between claimants in these areas. We are not a claimant; we just want to make sure that the rules of the road are upheld.
I reiterated my strong commitment, as well, to our One-China policy based on the Three Joint Communiqués and the Taiwan Relations Act…
The Surface Nature of the Dispute
China’s rapidly growing perimeter which will protect Chinese invasion forces when they attack Taiwan.
Vietnam, Malaysia and most of all, the Philippines are impacted by aggressive Chinese action in the region in which the Chinese are constructing militarized islands which are serving as an impediment to free trade. The areas of Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam could provide the Chinese war machine with virtually unlimited supplies of oil, rubber and other raw materials needed to maintain a sustainable Chinese war effort if China is able to dominate the region.
An Uneasy Peace Was Disrupted In Two Weeks
Obama and Xi Jinping’s apparent agreement has gone up in smoke- The Chinese have escalated their military activities in the region. This represents a 180 degree turn around from what had been apparently decided upon in the leaders’ meeting on September 25, 2015.
The Navy briefs the media, the public and its Asian allies on America’s intent to challenge the territorial waters of the artificially created Chinese Islands which threatens the freedom of the seas in the region.
What Went Wrong?
On September 25, 2015, Obama appeared to have the situation well in hand. However, China has not limited their aggressive military actions in that part of the world, they have increased their hostile actions. What went wrong? What went wrong is that Obama got punched in the mouth by Vladimir Putin and Obama did nothing about it. Only a couple of days removed from the Chinese-American accords related to the South China Sea, Russia launched military operations against ISIS inside of Syria. Obama is still searching for the right words to respond to Putin’s aggression.
The Chinese are now emboldened and obviously see Obama as the weak sister that he is and have subsequently increased their aggression in the South China Sea. On the surface, and with the announcement that Obama is sending a fleet to the South China Sea as a show of force, it appears that the world has yet another flash point that could start World War III. However, I think the Chinese are going to mock this Presidential paper tiger and ignore this fleet while they continue to militarize these artificially constructed Islands.
Is Obama Being Presidential?
Is Obama merely trying to fulfill his role as the President, but he has been outmaneuvered by botht the Chinese and the Russians at the same time. Or, is he, as I have alleged several times, playing his role in contributing to the demise of America by merely appearing to be indecisive and weak?
If Obama had done anything to improve America since his initial election, I might not be able to aasert that he is a traitor. As an American citizen, short of giving you an Obama phone, has this President done anything that has improved your life? Middle class? Christians? Constitutionalists? Veterans? I could go on, but you get the idea. Obama is appearing to be somewhat Presidential, but every move is a day late and a dollar short.
Obama, in an attempt to look Presidential, is emulating FDR’s World War II 8 Point Plan strategy in the South China Sea. It is doomed to failure and will only invite an attack upon American forces by China as did the 8 Point Plant prior to World War II.
History Repeats Itself
It was called the 8 Point Plan, or the McCollum memo and in the memo was the path to the beginning of World War II. It strongly appears that the Obama administration is following the first 5 steps of the 8 Point Plan which resulted in the Japanese attacking Pearl Harbor.
The McCollum memo contained an eight-part plan to counter rising Japanese power over East Asia:
- Make an arrangement with Britain for the use of British bases in the Pacific, particularly Singapore.
- Make an arrangement with the Netherlands for the use of base facilities and acquisition of supplies in the Dutch East Indies
- Give all possible aid to the Chinese government of Chiang-Kai-Shek
- Send a division of long range heavy cruisers to the Orient, Philippines, or Singapore
- Send two divisions of submarines to the Orient
Less than one year, later an encircled Japanese government attacked Pearl Harbor in order to keep American naval forces away from their aggressive intentions toward their Asian neighbors. The Japanese then began to invade and occupy several Pacific Islands (e.g. Guam, Wake, and the Philippines). This was Japan’s creation of a defensive perimeter so they could continue to invade British and Dutch held territories in Asia which were resource rich with raw materials needed by the Japanese war machine.
An increasing number of historians believe that FDR was trying to provoke an attack upon the United States so that the US could enter the war and defeat Germany before they could develop nuclear weapons. FDR thought that provoking Japan was America’s ticket into the war and a Japanese “sneak attack” would wake up the war fever of a slumbering America that wanted to stay out of WW II.
Obama, like FDR before him is ratcheting up tensions as he has pledged military aid to the area and is sailing his ships into a potential war zone as did FDR before him. Obama has pledged support for America’s Asian allies. Obama is clearly intent on militarizing the area. Obama wants to and needs to start WW III with China. The motivations for his actions are described in the following paragraphs. If Obama is loyal President, he is merely incompetent if he thinks this strategy can work. More than likely, he is carrying out his role as a Manchurian Candidate and is leading America to the doorstep of destruction. It is becoming clear to me that the latter is true and Obama is taking his marching orders from the Bank of International Settlements and not the Federal Reserve. The BIS wants war, a war of political and economic unification. The Federal Reserve merely wants to preserve the Petrodollar.
What Has Brought the World to This Point?
The BRICS have attacked the sacred Federal Reserve by undermining the Petrodollar.
When Iran began to sell oil for gold to China, Russia and India, this was a de facto declaration of war. The US has staggering debt and without the backing of its currency by the Petrodollar, in which every nation must purchase dollars to buy oil, the dollar would hyper-inflate overnight. The BRICS as they are called are led by China and Russia and they moving the world away from the Petrodollar. Subsequently, it is only a matter of time until the bottom falls out of the US economy. The Federal Reserve wanted to invade Syria and Iran and put a stop to the undermining of the Petrodollar just as they did in Iraq in Gulf War I. However, for the past three years, Russia has checkmated Obama and the Federal Reserve and as a result Iran has grown stronger and the BRICS are destroying the US economy. For the Federal Reserve to survive they now have to go to war against the BRICS. Since they have been ousted in Syria, China seems the best place to start World War III.
China Has Goals Too
The Chinese word for crisis is translated as opportunity. The coming conflict in the South China Sea would allow China, with a victory, to expand its defensive perimeter, just like Japan did 70 years ago. It would also allow them to posture to take back Taiwan which lies north of the tension filled area.
This scenario will be further explored in a series of future articles. We might not be at war by Christmas, but then again, we might. It is not a matter of if World War III is going to happen, it is a matter of when.
In summary, Obama is allowing our forces to be drawn into every hotspot in the world. As a result, this President, who reduced troop strength to pre-World War II levels, has set the United States up for military failure. All of a suddent, what Doug Hagmann and Steve Quayle have been saying for the past few years is taking on new and clear meaning.

This article was written by J.D. Heyes and originally published at Natural News.com.
Editor’s Note: As Dr. Paul Craig Roberts so often points out, the United States is the worst aggressor in the world, and has been since the end of World War II. Its undemocratic and unconstitutional empire has set up bases in nearly every corner of the earth, spent untold volumes of money to start wars everywhere, and rules mainly from the strength of the dollar, which in turn backs up the military force.
After Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and others, the U.S. has done everything possible to destabilize the Middle East region, and yet it is eager to paint Putin as the aggressor and the one who must be contained. In reality, we are witnessing the tantrums of an empire upset that the dollar is being unseated as the world reserve currency, and is doing whatever it can to desperately project its force and prop up the illusion of superiority and dominance. It may not work, but everyone knows a wounded, cornered animal is at its most dangerous moment under threat.
Gen. Wesley Clark (yes, the same one who called for rounding up dissidents) long ago called out the neocon strategy in the Middle East, which sought to provoke war and ‘take over seven countries in seven years.’ This is the Wolfowitz Doctrine.
The United States government has become “the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization,” warns former Reagan official

A former top member of the Ronald Reagan administration has issued a dire warning about the current state of American government: it’s evil and will become even more evil in the years ahead as the world itself becomes more dangerous.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, who served just over a year as Reagan’s Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, said on the Shadow of Truth radio program that Washington, D.C., is a major den of inequity.
“The United States [military policy] has destroyed seven countries,” he says. “The populations there are subject to ongoing continual violence either from the U.S. or these Jihadists or from the Islamic State. In Libya there’s various factions, no government – just warlords fighting and nobody’s safe anywhere so the populations are getting out. You can’t live in that type of situation.”
Early in the interview, the hosts ask Roberts about a recent column he penned in which he states that all current Republican presidential contenders are essentially in favor of war. The hosts then ask him about the potential of nuclear war with either Russia or China, “because we seem to be moving in that direction.”
“I think what it will take is the European countries to realize that they’ve been enabling American aggression in the 21st century, and aggression that is now brought them millions of refugees particularly from Syria and Iraq, and they can’t cope with these refugees,” said Roberts in reference to the fighting between ISIS, Syrian rebels, and Iraqi and Syrian government forces that has caused a wave of migration out of the war zones into Europe.
War hawks are also warning
He also said that Europe’s blind pursuit of American-led goals was putting the entire continent in potential conflict with Russia, which has established bases in Syria and has deployed men and material there in support of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, including tanks and combat aircraft. The Obama White House opposes Assad and wants him to step down.
“All of this is nonsensical for Europe, so it’s possible that they will come to the conclusion that being a vassal of Washington doesn’t pay,” Roberts said.
As further noted by Investment Research Dynamics, commenting on Roberts’ interview:
Lost in the rivers of humanity that have been streaming out of Africa and the Middle East and flooding into Europe is the fact the U.S. military is responsible for this crisis. Not only has the U.S. destroyed several countries around the globe, the U.S. Government now appears to provoking Russia into a military conflict in both Ukraine and Syria that risks escalating into a nuclear war. Even Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski – two notorious warhawks – have both recently stated that the U.S. Government is pushing Russia too hard.
In his interview, Roberts said that he believes the only way to avoid an eventual nuclear conflict is to break up the European Union and the NATO military alliance, the latter of which was formed at the opening of the Cold War as a counterbalance to the former Soviet Union-led Warsaw Pact. He says the U.S. uses NATO as “cover” to implement unilaterally dangerous, aggressive military policies around the world.
No peaceful candidates
In his cited column regarding the Republican candidates, Roberts added:
There is not a peaceful person among the Republican candidates. Even the female is heartless. Carly Fiorina positioned herself along side the macho men as a warmonger. She let the military/security complex know that she, too, was for sale. Send in the campaign donations, and she will see that the money flows back to the military/security complex in the buildup of fleets and armaments that will send the Russians a message.
He also says that the EU is essentially addicted to U.S. money and that it might be virtually impossible for the nations within the coalition to act on their own, which he adds is their own fault.

Being a former college basketball coach, I marvel at the skill of a good strategist who can carry out a game plan. Vladimir Putin would have been a great college basketball coach, a masterful poker player, great chess player, a top used car salesman and he is an excellent leader of his country when it comes to foreign policy. Putin has made the Federal Reserve, Wall Street and our government look amateurish.
If it wasn’t for the fact that Putin has the potential to be one of the most despotic figures in all of history, I would be a fan of his cunning and his ability to carry out an agenda on multiple fronts with precision and skill.
However, there is one group that Putin does not outfox, out-strategize and out maneuver; that would be the forces controlling the Bank of International Settlement (BIS).
Putin is developing almost a cult following among some people in the alternative media. To them, he represents a man with the force of conviction to tell international banking to go to hell. To these well-intentioned, but misguided analysts, Putin has succeeded where other world leaders have lost their lives (e.g. JFK, Hussein, etc.). As romantic and appealing as a superhero may be who will ride in and save the world from the evil bankers, nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to Putin. Whether Putin realizes it or not, he is doing the complete bidding of the big boys at the BIS and everything is moving right along according to plan.
This article explores the fact that Putin, although he may be, on the surface, resisting international banking on one level, he is very much under their control on another level. This article will also explore the implications for these events upon the American people.
The Starting Point
In the alternative media, many make the mistake of speaking about the “banksters” as if they were one entity all working towards the same goal which is the establishment of a singular economic system which controls the planet through rabid debt management. Generally, this is true. However, the process of international banking is compartmentalized and when goals are not met, we see divisions emerging and this is exactly what we are witnessing at the present moment.
Before we can effectively analyze how Putin is in the process of putting himself in charge of the world’s chessboard, we need to first take a very brief look at how international banking is organized.
Level One: The Bank of International Settlement
International banking has three major levels. The executive directors of this grand economic scheme, the Bank of International Settlement, from Basel, sit at the head of the table. The BIS sets global economic policy by manipulating currency exchange rates (e.g. IMF), establish lending rates, picking national winners and losers, etc. The singular mission of the BIS is to march the world’s central banks into the NWO that they control.
It can be said that the forces, both known and unknown, are the rulers of the planet.
Level Two: The Central Banks
The second level of power consists of the global central banks including the Federal Reserve which is an unelected cabal of private bankers who have wrestled the financial power of this country away from Congress and control the nation’s money. It is the same in every country. And of course, if an entity controls the money of a nation, they also control those who use their money through the establishment of a predatory debt enslavement system. You learned this principle of finance as a teenager when your parents told you, “For as long as you live under this house, you will do what I say.” The power of the purse determines who controls behavior. The world’s central banks take their marching orders from the Bank of International Settlement because the monetization of the fiat currency that each central bank controls is determined by the BIS.
It can be accurately stated that the central banks are rulers of nations and represent mid-level management in the hierarchy of the process.
Level Three: The National Banking Industry
The third level of power in this unholy system are the financial institutions of a nation. In our case, this would be institutions such as Goldman Sachs, other lesser Wall Street investment houses as well as the megabanks (e.g. Bank of America, Chase, Wells Fargo, etc.). Policies that are developed in Basel are implemented by these institutions.
The investment houses conduct the day to day management of the polices which flow downhill from the BIS.
Finally, there is everybody else and that would be the sheep of this country who know nothing of how any of this works. Don’t hold your breath on a sudden level of developing awareness, most of us are all too brainwashed by the system to achieve this level of awareness.
The Game Plan for Building a New World Order
Since the 1944 Bretton Woods Agreement which established the dollar as the world’s reserve currency and the US was made the de facto world policeman as a result, Americans have enjoyed economic dominance because in order to buy energy, the world needed to purchase dollars from our Federal Reserve. After the world departed from the gold standard for the fiat currency standard, the US is the only country that truly enjoyed a solvent currency and our standard of living has reflected this status.
Americans have been allowed to enjoy this most favored status because it became our task, on behalf of the BIS, to put together coalitions of central banks to force unwilling nations into this system. And when a nation, such as Libya and Iraq, attempted to swim upstream against the debt enslavement policies of these banks, the leaders were murdered and the people become indentured debt slaves. The cost to America is endless war, massive debt and a reputation for being the “Great Satan”.
Virtually, all nations have succumbed to this tyranny, with two notable exceptions, Russia and China. To a lesser extent, India has also become problematic for the BIS since they have joined Russia and China in using national currency and/or gold to conduct trade among each other rather than using the “required” dollar.
If the BIS is going to realize its dream of New World Order, Russia, China and the United States economies must all be crushed. For when the world lies in ruin, out of chaos will come order. Putin is the main driving force in making this a reality.
Putin Has Checkmated the Central Banks At Level Two
Putin is defeating the world’s central banks at two levels. One, he is spearheading an effort to move the world away from the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. This is what the Syrian and Iranian crisis was all about (e.g. selling oil for gold rather than the Petrodollar) and Putin exposed Obama’s false flag event (i.e. gassing the Syrian rebels) for what it really was. Further, Putin now has the power to refuse to accept the dollar as payment for his gas flowing into Europe. If the Petrodollar dies, what will happen to the US economy? If this does happen, we will find out very quickly why DHS purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition to go with its 2700 armored personnel carriers.
Second, Putin is threatening to become the main supplier of energy on the planet. With the consummation a recent gas deal between the Russians and the Chinese, Putin is undermining the control of energy that the central banks have enjoyed since the early days of the creation of Saudi Arabia to oversee oil production.
Putin is spitting in the face of the Federal Reserve and the other G7 central banks by encouraging Iran to sell its oil for gold. This is turning international finance on its head. Putin also has enough of a military presence, along with nuclear weapons, to stave a direct conventional invasion of his country. Putin has positioned himself to control the energy needs of Europe as the Europeans will be forced to choose between heating their homes or remaining a military ally of the US. This will eventually lead to a disintegration of NATO, thus enhancing Putin’s military power by comparison.
Has Putin Really Killed the New World Order?
The march of the G7 toward consolidating national power under the central banks has stopped dead in its tracks. Russia, China, India and to a lesser extent, Brazil and South Africa are now charting their own independent economic course. When Libya refused to regionalize and weaken its currency and they were adamant about avoiding the debt slavery, their leaders were murdered and their country was conquered by al-Qaeda proxy forces supported by the funds of the G7 and the action was carried out by the CIA.
However, Russia and China are not Libya and Iraq. Both nations possess nuclear weapons and sizeable armies. For the moment, the dream of a New World Order appears to be dead. Or is it?
The BIS Employs the Sun Tzu Strategy of “Death’s Ground”
The G7 central banks are impotent against Putin as he has outmaneuvered them at every turn. But for the big boys at Basel, things are proceeding according to plan. If the BIS has to sacrifice some of its central banks to get what it wants, so be it. The BIS will also think nothing of fermenting the conditions for the next world war.
Over 2,000 years ago, Chinese military strategist, Sun Tzu, imparted a knowledge of military strategy which is still being taught in our service academies and in our war colleges. One of the primary principles of Sun Tzu consists of the concept of placing one’s soldiers on “death’s ground” if you want them to fight hard and achieve victory against all odds. The best military example that comes to mind is what happened to the WWII Normandy invasion force at Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. These men were thrown onto a beach where there was no retreat and they were only going to leave the beach dead or victorious. The BIS has employed a Sun Tzu strategy of placing its second level of power, the central banks, on death’s ground. The G7 central banks will conquer Putin, or they will die. However, before rigor mortis sets in, the G7 nations will commence a world war based on economic survival. Again, out of chaos will come order.
World War III Is Inevitable
The failure of the central banks to corral and control Putin has made World War III a likely scenario. As Putin continues on the path of destroying the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, what will the Federal Reserve do? There will be a war to preserve the status quo. As China, Russia and the United States are drawn into a confrontation, the world’s economy will be obliterated along with billions of lives. In the aftermath of the coming global holocaust, the supreme financial rulers of the planet will be waiting to create order, the New World Order, out of chaos. And that war has already started with the Russian invasion of Syria.
A willing pawn of the NWO, or not, Putin is no hero. He is doing exactly what is expected. Make no mistake about it, the BIS controls the central banks, world finance and Putin. The New World Order is very much alive.
What is interesting, is that I have completed the article and I barely mentioned how Putin has overrun Syria and has accomplished this feat in less than 10 days when the US has been trying to accomplish the same for three years but has not managed to put one boot on the ground.
a stage Putin owns Obama and Obama plays ball because that is his role. America is supposed to lose. All the world is and all will play their roles at the behest of the New World Order.
World Events are like professional wrestling. We are indeed looking at the WWE and fake all-star wrestling. Putin, a bankster controlled leader masquerading as an independent leader (none left), who stands for truth, justice and the “American way”, while Obama is the poster child for what is wrong with Communism. If you don’t think this is true, then why is half of America rooting for Putin to win? This is a bankster plan to have both leaders switch roles from who plays the villain and the hero. Hell, Obama doesn’t even try to hide the criminality of his administration. They are all playing a role. Your personal assets and your civil liberties are the prize in this high stakes poker game.
I have a question for the sheep. Are you physically, spiritually financially and emotional prepared?
Americans are the bad boys and “bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do when they come for you”? Everything you own will soon be gone!

Warren Buffett once referred to derivatives as “financial weapons of mass destruction“, and it was inevitable that they would begin to wreak havoc on our financial system at some point. While things may seem somewhat calm on Wall Street at the moment, the truth is that a great deal of trouble is bubbling just under the surface.
As you will see below, something happened in mid-September that required an unprecedented 405 billion dollar surge of Treasury collateral into the repo market. I know – that sounds very complicated, so I will try to break it down more simply for you. It appears that some very large institutions have started to get into a significant amount of trouble because of all the reckless betting that they have been doing. This is something that I have warned would happen over and over again. In fact, I have written about it so much that my regular readers are probably sick of hearing about it. But this is what is going to cause the meltdown of our financial system.
Many out there get upset when I compare derivatives trading to gambling, and perhaps it would be more accurate to describe most derivatives as a form of insurance. The big financial institutions assure us that they have passed off most of the risk on these contracts to others and so there is no reason to worry according to them.
Well, personally I don’t buy their explanations, and a lot of others don’t either. On a very basic, primitive level, derivatives trading is gambling. This is a point that Jeff Nielson made very eloquently in a piece that he recently published…
No one “understands” derivatives. How many times have readers heard that thought expressed (please round-off to the nearest thousand)? Why does no one understand derivatives? For many; the answer to that question is that they have simply been thinking too hard. For others; the answer is that they don’t “think” at all.
Derivatives are bets. This is not a metaphor, or analogy, or generalization. Derivatives are bets. Period. That’s all they ever were. That’s all they ever can be.
One very large financial institution that appears to be in serious trouble with these financial weapons of mass destruction is Glencore. At one time Glencore was considered to be the 10th largest company on the entire planet, but now it appears to be coming apart at the seams, and a great deal of their trouble seems to be tied to derivatives. The following comes from Zero Hedge…
Of particular concern, they said, was Glencore’s use of financial instruments such as derivatives to hedge its trading of physical goods against price swings. The company had $9.8 billion in gross derivatives in June 2015, down from $19 billion in such positions at the end of 2014, causing investors to query the company about the swing.
Glencore told investors the number went down so drastically because of changes in market volatility this year, according to people briefed by Glencore. When prices vary significantly, it can increase the value of hedging positions.
Last year, there were extreme price moves, particularly in the crude-oil market, which slid from about $114 a barrel in June to less than $60 a barrel by the end of December.
That response wasn’t satisfying, said Michael Leithead, a bond fund portfolio manager at EFG Asset Management, which managed $12 billion as of the end of March and has invested in Glencore’s debt.
According to Bank of America, the global financial system has about 100 billion dollars of exposure overall to Glencore. So if Glencore goes bankrupt that is going to be a major event. At this point, Glencore is probably the most likely candidate to be “the next Lehman Brothers”.
And it isn’t just Glencore that is in trouble. Other financial giants such as Trafigura are in deep distress as well. Collectively, the global financial system has approximately half a trillion dollars of exposure to these firms…
Worse, since it is not just Glencore that the banks are exposed to but very likely the rest of the commodity trading space, their gross exposure blows up to a simply stunning number:
For the banks, of course, Glencore may not be their only exposure in the commodity trading space. We consider that other vehicles such as Trafigura, Vitol and Gunvor may feature on bank balance sheets as well ($100 bn x 4?)
Call it half a trillion dollars in very highly levered exposure to commodities: an asset class that has been crushed in the past year.
Hoarding these items is better than having money in the bank (Ad)
The mainstream media is not talking much about any of this yet, and that is probably a good thing. But behind the scenes, unprecedented moves are already taking place.
When I came across the information that I am about to share with you, I was absolutely stunned. It comes from Investment Research Dynamics, and it shows very clearly that everything is not “okay” in the financial world…
Something occurred in the banking system in September that required a massive reverse repo operation in order to force the largest ever Treasury collateral injection into the repo market. Ordinarily the Fed might engage in routine reverse repos as a means of managing the Fed funds rate. However, as you can see from the graph below, there have been sudden spikes up in the amount of reverse repos that tend to correspond the some kind of crisis – the obvious one being the de facto collapse of the financial system in 2008:
What in the world could possibly cause a spike of that magnitude?
Well, that same article that I just quoted links the troubles at Glencore with this unprecedented intervention…
What’s even more interesting is that the spike-up in reverse repos occurred at the same time – September 16 – that the stock market embarked on an 8-day cliff dive, with the S&P 500 falling 6% in that time period. You’ll note that this is around the same time that a crash in Glencore stock and bonds began. It has been suggested by analysts that a default on Glencore credit derivatives either by Glencore or by financial entities using derivatives to bet against that event would be analogous to the “Lehman moment” that triggered the 2008 collapse.
The blame on the general stock market plunge was cast on the Fed’s inability to raise interest rates. However that seems to be nothing more than a clever cover story for something much more catastrophic which began to develop out sight in the general liquidity functions of the global banking system.
Back in 2008, Lehman Brothers was not “perfectly fine” one day and then suddenly collapsed the next. There were problems brewing under the surface well in advance.
Well, the same thing is happening now at banking giants such as Deutsche Bank, and at commodity trading firms such as Glencore, Trafigura and The Noble Group.
And of course a lot of smaller fish are starting to implode as well. I found this example posted on Business Insider earlier today…
On September 11, Spruce Alpha, a small hedge fund which is part of a bigger investment group, sent a short report to investors.
The letter said that the $80 million fund had lost 48% in a month, according the performance report seen by Business Insider.
There was no commentary included in the note. No explanation. Just cold hard numbers.
Wow – how do you possibly lose 48 percent in a single month?
It would be hard to do that even if you were actually trying to lose money on purpose.
Sadly, this kind of scenario is going to be repeated over and over as we get even deeper into this crisis.
Meanwhile, our “leaders” continue to tell us that there is nothing to worry about. For example, just consider what former Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is saying…
Former Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke doesn’t see any bubbles forming in global markets right now.
But he doesn’t think you should take his word for it.
And even if you did, that isn’t the right question to ask anyway.
Speaking at a Wall Street Journal event on Wednesday morning, Bernanke said, “I don’t see any obvious major mis-pricings. Nothing that looks like the housing bubble before the crisis, for example. But you shouldn’t trust me.”
I certainly agree with that last sentence. Bernanke was the one telling us that there was not going to be a recession back in 2008 even after one had already started. He was clueless back then and he is clueless today.
Most of our “leaders” either don’t understand what is happening or they are not willing to tell us.
So that means that we have to try to figure things out for ourselves the best that we can. And right now there are signs all around us that another 2008-style crisis has begun.
Personally, I am hoping that there will be a lot more days like today when the markets were relatively quiet and not much major news happened around the world.
Unfortunately for all of us, these days of relative peace and tranquility are about to come to a very abrupt end.
