TN Note: This article was originally written by Patrick Wood on March 18, 2009, but it is as pertinent today as it was then. The movement toward polarization of law enforcement has continued unabated and unchecked.
Patriots, Christians and concerned citizens are increasingly in the cross hairs of the U.S. intelligence community, and battle lines are being quietly drawn that could soon pit our own law enforcement and military forces against us.
A February 20 report entitled “The Modern Militia Movement” was issued by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) that paints mainstream patriotic Americans as dangerous threats to law enforcement and to the country. Operating under the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the MIAC is listed as a Fusion Center that was established in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice.
Because authenticity of the report was questioned by some, this writer contacted Missouri state Representative Jim Guest (R-King City) who had personally verified that the report had indeed been issued. Rep. Guest is chairman of the Personal Privacy Committee and is a prominent leader in the national blowback against the Real ID Act of 2005 that requires states to issue uniform driver’s licenses containing personal biometric data. (See Guest warns against Big Brother, Real ID)
Rep. Guest stated that he was “shocked and outraged” at the report, which clearly paints him and many other elected state leaders, as a potential threats to law enforcement.
Instead of focusing on actual criminal incidents of “home-grown” terrorism, the MAIC report instead lists issues that it believes are common to the threats it perceives. Thus, Americans involved with the following issues are highly suspect:
“Ammunition Accountability Act” requiring each bullet to to be serialized and registered to the purchaser.
“Anticipation of the economic collapse of the US Government” Prominent scholars and economists are openly debating the bankruptcy and insolvency of the United States government.
“Possible Constitutional Convention (Con Con)” 32 states have called for a Constitutional Convention to force Congress and the Executive Branch into a balanced budget, but many are concerned that if called, Con Con would be taken over by hostile interests who would introduce Amendments that are harmful to national sovereignty.
“North American Union” MIAC states that “Conspiracy theorists claim that this union would link Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The NAU would unify its monetary system and trade the dollar for the AMERO. Associated with this theory is concern over a NAFTA Superhighway, which would fast track trade between the three nations. There is additional concern that the NAU would open up the border causing security risks and free movement for immigrants.”
“Universal Service Program” “Statements made by President Elect Obama and his chief of staff have led extremists to fear the creation of a Civilian Defense Force. This theory requires all citizens between the age of 18 and 25 to be forced to attend three months of mandatory training.” (This is exactly what Obama and Rahm Emmanuel have repeatedly stated on national TV, and thus is hardly a theory.)
“Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)” This includes human implantation, but the larger concern is universal id cards and personal property identification that can be read electronically without the bearer’s knowledge.
Citizens who are concerned about the above issues are then lumped into radical ideologies such as Christian Identity, White Nationalists (e.g., neo-Nazi, Skinheads, etc.) and anti-Semites. Tax Resisters and Anti-Immigration advocates are thrown into the same category.
The MIAC report then sternly warns law enforcement personnel,
“You are the Enemy: The militia subscribes to an antigovernment and NWO mind set, which creates a threat to law enforcement officers. They view the military, National Guard, and law enforcement as a force that will confiscate their firearms and place them in FEMA concentration camps.” [Bold emphasis appears in original]
On the last page of the MIAC report, a section listing Political Paraphernalia (flags and symbols) states,
“Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional Party, Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian material. These members are usually supporters of former Presidential Candidate: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.
Militia members commonly display picture, cartoons, bumper stickers that contain anti-government rhetoric. Most of this material will depict the FRS, IRS, FBI, ATF, CIA, UN, Law Enforcement, and the ‘New World Order’ in a derogatory manor (sic). Additionally, Racial, anti-immigration, and anti-abortion, mate¬rial may be displayed by militia members.”
What was the ostensible genesis of all these “threats” to law enforcement? The report explains it this way…
“Academics contend that female and minority empowerment in the 1970s and 1960s caused a blow to white male’s sense of empowerment. This, combined with a sense of defeat from the Vietnam War, increased levels of immigration, and unemployment, spawned a paramilitary culture. This caught on in the 1980’s with injects such as Tom Clancy novels, Solder of Fortune Magazine, and movies such as Rambo that glorified combat. This culture glorified white males and portrayed them as morally upright heroes who were mentally and physically tough.
“It was during this time frame that many individuals and organizations began to concoct conspiracy theories to explain their misfortunes. These theories varied but almost always involved a globalist dictatorship the“New World Order (NWO), which conspired to exploit the working class citizens.”
In other words, these “ridiculous NWO theories” were created by psychological deviants who were trying to justify their own self-induced misfortunes.
Fear ye, all troopers
For unsuspecting law enforcement personnel, this MIAC training document polarizes unsuspecting officers to fear peaceful, law-abiding citizens and greatly increases the risk of armed confrontation. For instance, a routine traffic stop would be escalated if the officer observes a Ron Paul or Chuck Baldwin bumper sticker on the rear bumper of the car. The mere possession of printed material such as the U.S. Constitution or Bill of Rights would be viewed as subversive, even though most officers are required to take an oath to “defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States” as a condition of their employment.
Additionally, troopers are indoctrinated that all such topics are pure fantasy and without any factual basis. Even if they had their own concerns, they would be ridiculed into accepting the position that all criticism of the New World Order is dangerous to their well being.
The Columbia Daily Tribune (Columbia, Missouri) reports this concern from local resident Tim Neal, who apparently fits the MIAC’s “Modern Militia” profile:
If a police officer is pulling me over with my family in the car and he sees a bumper sticker on my vehicle that has been specifically identified as one that an extremist would have in their vehicle, the guy is probably going to be pretty apprehensive and not thinking in a rational manner, and this guys walking up to my vehicle with a gun. [see ‘Fusion Center’ draws fire over assertions]
MIAC is a Fusion Center
As mentioned above, the Missouri Information Analysis Center is one of a network of over 50 Fusion Centers around the country.
According to the National Criminal Intelligence Resource Center (NCIRC), a Fusion Center is “a collaborative effort of two or more agencies that provide resources, expertise, and/or information to the center with the goal of maximizing the ability to detect, prevent, apprehend, and respond to criminal and terrorist activity.”
As of 2006, the NCIRC listed 50 Fusion Centers in various states.
Most importantly, the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security are the driving forces behind Fusion Centers, having published “Fusion Center Guidelines: Developing and Sharing Information and Intelligence in a New World.” This report headlines “Fusion” as “Turning Information and Intelligence Into Actionable Knowledge.”
Fusion Centers are one of five areas of information sharing under the Information Sharing Environment (ISE) that was established by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004.
ISE membership includes the Department of Commerce, CIA, Department of Defense, Director of National Intelligence, Department of Energy, FBI, Health and Human Services, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Department of Homeland Security, National Counter-Terrorism Center, Department of Interior, Office of Management and Budget, Department of Justice, Department of State, Department of Transportation and the Department of Treasury.
According to one white paper (on the ISE web site) entitled The Intelligence Fusion Process for State, Local and Tribal Law Enforcement, “The most important output of the intelligence Fusion Center is actionable intelligence. This means that the intelligence produced by the center will drive operational responses and strategic awareness of threats.” Accordingly,
“The heart of good intelligence analysis is to have a diverse array of valid and reliable raw information for analysis. The more robust the raw information, the more accurate the analytic output (i.e., intelligence) will be.”
The above mentioned MIAC report, issued by an official Fusion Center, is apparently part of this “diverse array of valid and reliable raw information.”
However, ISE’s understanding of intelligence is foolish. Any intelligence analyst knows that so-called raw information is treated as garbage until verified from multiple sources to validate accuracy, completeness and freedom from bias. Secondly, analytic output depends upon trained and experienced human reasoning and judgment, not on the “robustness” of the raw information itself.
Where do Fusion Centers get inputs?
According to their own documents, Fusion Cen¬ters are “seeded” with ideas for analysis by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. Although this is problematic in itself, attention is better directed to the left-wing nonprofit organization, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Upon careful word and theme comparison between the MIAC report and SPLC literature, it is apparent that there is a significant link between the two. Either MIAC received training or training material from SPLC or some of its personnel had some previous exposure to it.
The SPLC aggressively offers training to local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. According to the SPLC web site, “We focus on the history, background, leaders and activities of far-right extremists in the U.S.” and states that it “is internationally known for its tolerance education programs, its legal victories against white supremacists and its tracking of hate groups.”
Hate crimes are essentially acts of vilification of a victim because of his or her membership in a certain social group, such as racial, religious, sexual orientation, nationality, gender, etc. While hate crimes are wrong under any circumstance, the SPLC sees no conflict in profiling conservative whites, Christians, Constitutionalists, and patriots as being associated with, if not responsible for, hate crimes in America. This is the pot calling the kettle black.
For instance, consider the SPLC statement, “…a basic fact about all three movements: Patriots, white supremacists and anti-abortion militants are all fueled by interpretations of religion.”
Aside from the fact that this sweeping generalization is plainly not true, it is mud-slinging at its best: Patriots are lumped in with white supremacists, anti-abortionists are militants, and all are driven by an obviously irrational and fanatical application of religion.
In another SPLC article about a tragic killing in South Carolina, entitled “The Abbeville Horror”, the writer goes well beyond just the facts of the story and is careful to sprinkle in words and phrases such as:
Patriots, tax protestors, sovereign citizens, antigovernment extremists, New World Order paranoia, Disarming U.S. Citizens, hard-line Christian Right, constitutional rights, antigovernment “Patriot” literature, anti-Semitic conspiracy, “Live Free or Die,” Ruby Ridge and Waco, Second Amendment, extremist organizing, “closet extremists,” paranoid beliefs, “Give me liberty or give me death.” [quotes appear in original text]
These are the same kinds of words and themes that are seen in The Modern Militia Movement article, where distinctions between good and bad people are blurred and confused: All are guilty by association, if nothing else.
Should a private organization like SPLC be allowed to provide official training to public-entrusted law enforcement agencies? Most would say, “No.” Even if the training was free, the agency should reject influence from the public sector, and even more so if it presents biased and one-sided information that is claimed to be factual.
It is critical to understand that the legitimate law enforcement agencies of cities, counties and states are not adversaries of the people. They are greatly needed for protection against crime and for keeping order in our communities.
They are, however, being methodically seeded with very wrong headed and dangerous infomation, the specific intent of which is to polarize law enforcement against peaceful citizens who simply care about the downfall of their country.
This writer interviewed Chuck Baldwin and asked about how he felt when he first saw his good name associated with those who would threaten bodily harm to law enforcement agencies. “Personally, I was stunned,” he said, “but my family has taken this very personally as well. This is more than disturbing.”
When asked about the possible affect of the report on the Constitution Party, of which he was the 2008 presidential candidate, he replied, “I think it will galvanize people and help them to understand the nature of the battle we are in. Freedom must be defended.”
In fact, the MIAC report has created a firestorm all over America. Tens of thousands of protests are being called, written, emailed and faxed to authorities and legislators in Missouri. It would not be surprising to see the report rescinded and an apology given.
Even so, behind the scene groups like the SPLC will continue unabated and undeterred in their effort to misinform and disrupt healthy community relations with worthy law enforcement agencies and personnel.
The message to every jurisdiction: Don’t let it happen!
Locate the Fusion Center in your state and keep a close eye on the information they are releasing. Stay close to as many law enforcement personnel as you can, asking them to keep their eyes open for reports similar to the Missouri report. Petition your state legislators to ban law enforcement training by private organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The original publication date of this article (03 18 09) should tell some of you folks just how little attention you have been paying to the destruction of our freedom. Everything Patrick wrote about back then is common knowledge today, and still the American complacency is present. What will it take to wake you folks up to reality?

On Nov. 13, the United Kingdom’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) announced it was charging 10 individual bankers, working for two separate banks, Deutsche Bank and Barclays, with fraud over their rigging of the Euribor rates. The latest announcement shines the spotlight once again on the scandals and criminal behavior that have come to define the world of global banking.
To date, only a handful of the world’s largest banks have been repeatedly investigated, charged, fined or settled in relation to a succession of large financial scams, starting with mortgage fraud and the Libor scandal in 2012, the Euribor scandal and the Forex (foreign exchange) rate rigging. At the heart of these scandals, which involve the manipulation of interest rates on trillions of dollars in transactions, lie a handful of banks that collectively form a cartel in control of global financial markets – and the source of worldwide economic and financial crises.
Banks such as HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, Barclays, Bank of America, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland and UBS anchor the global financial power we have come to recognize as fraud. The two, after all, are not mutually exclusive. In more explicit terms, this cartel of banks functions as a type of global financial Mafia, manipulating markets and defrauding investors, consumers and countries while demanding their pound of flesh in the form of interest payments. The banks force nations to impose austerity measures and structural reforms under the threat of cutting off funding; meanwhile they launder drug money for other cartels and organized crime syndicates.
Call them the global Mafiocracy.
In May, six major global banks were fined nearly $6 billion for manipulation of the foreign exchange market, which handles over $5 trillion in daily transactions. Four of the six banks pleaded guilty to charges of “conspiring to manipulate the price of U.S. dollars and euros exchanged.” Those banks were Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland, while two additional banks, UBS and Bank of America, were fined but did not plead guilty to the specific charges. Forex traders at Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and other banks conspired to manipulate currency prices through chat room groups they established, where they arrogantly used names like “The Mafia” and “The Cartel.”
The FBI said the investigations and charges against the big banks revealed criminal behavior “on a massive scale.” The British bank Barclays paid the largest individual fine at around $2.3 billion. But as one trader at the bank wrote in a chat room conversation back in 2010, “If you aint cheating, you aint trying.” The total fines, while numerically large, were but a small fraction of the overall market capitalization of each bank – though the fine on Barclays amounted to some 3.4% of the bank’s market capitalization, the highest percentage by far among the group.
Despite the criminal conspiracy charges covering the years 2007 through 2013, the banks and their top officials continue to lay the blame squarely at the feet of individual traders. Axel Weber, the former president of the German Bundesbank (the central bank of Germany), who is now chairman of Switzerland’s largest bank, UBS, commented that “the conduct of a small number of employees was unacceptable and we have taken appropriate disciplinary actions.”
Looking at the larger scale of bank fines and fraud in the roughly eight years since the global financial crisis, the numbers increase substantially. In addition to a 2012 settlement for mortgage-related fraud in the U.S. housing market, which amounted to some $25 billion, several large banks paid individual fines related to mortgage and foreclosure fraud – including a $16 billion fine for Bank of America, and $13 billion for JPMorgan Chase. Added to these are fines related to the rigging of the Libor rate (the interest rate at which banks lend to each other) and the Forex rigging, as well as money laundering, violating sanctions, manipulating the price of gold, manipulating the U.S. electricity market and assisting tax evasion, among other crimes.
According to a research paper published in June, the total cost of litigation (fines, penalties, settlements, etc.) paid by 16 major global banks since 2010 has reached more than $300 billion. Bank of America paid the most, amounting to more than $66 billion, followed by JPMorgan Chase, Lloyds, Citigroup, Barclays, RBS, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, BNP Paribas, Santander, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, UBS, National Australia Bank, Standard Chartered and Société Générale.
Virtually all of these banks also appear on a list of data, compiled through 2007, revealing them to be among the most interconnected and powerful financial institutions in the world. This core group of corporations forms part of a network of 147 financial institutions that Swiss scientists refer to as the “super-entity,” which, through their various shareholdings, collectively control and own each other and roughly 40% of the world’s 43,000 largest transnational corporations.
In other words, the big banks – along with large insurance companies and asset management firms – do not simply act as a cartel in terms of engaging in criminal activities, but they form a functionally interdependent network of global financial and corporate control. Further, the banks work together in various industry associations and lobbying groups where they officially represent their collective interests.
The largest European banks and financial institutions are represented by the European Financial Services Round Table (EFR), whose membership consists of the CEOs or Chairmen of roughly 25 of the top financial institutions on the continent, including Deutsche Bank, AXA, HSBC, Allianz, RBS, ING, Barclays, BNP Paribas, UBS, and Credit Suisse, among others.
In the United States, the Financial Services Forum (FSF) represents the largest American along with some European banks and financial institutions. The Forum’s membership consists of less than 20 executives, including the CEOs or Chairmen of such firms as Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, UBS, HSBC, AIG, Bank of New York Mellon, State Street Corporation, Deutsche Bank and Wells Fargo, among others.
And on a truly global scale, there is the Institute of International Finance (IIF), the premier global association representing the financial industry, with a membership of nearly 500 different institutions from more than 70 countries around the world, including banks, insurance companies, asset management firms, sovereign wealth funds, central banks, credit ratings agencies, hedge funds and development banks.
In addition to these various groups and associations, many of the same large banks and their top executives also serve as members, leaders or participants in much more secretive groups and forums – for example, the International Monetary Conference (IMC), a yearly meeting of hundreds of the world’s top bankers hosted by the American Bankers Association, which invites selected politicians, central bankers and finance ministers to attend their off-the-record discussions. In addition, there is the Institut International d’Etudes Bancaires (International Institute of Banking Studies), or IIEB, which brings together the top officials from dozens of Europe’s major financial institutions for discussions with central bankers, presidents and prime ministers in “closed sessions” with virtually no coverage in the media.
These financial institutions are major owners of government debt, which gives them even greater leverage over the policies and priorities of governments. Exercising this power, they typically demand the same thing: austerity measures and “structural reforms” designed to advance a neoliberal market economy that ultimately benefits those same banks and corporations. The banks in turn create the very crises that require governments to bail them out, racking up large debts that banks turn into further crises, pressuring economic reforms in return for further loans. The cycle of crisis and control continues, and all the while, the big banks and financial institutions engage in criminal conspiracies, fraud, manipulation and money-laundering on a massive scale, including acting as the financial services arm of the world’s largest drug cartels and terrorists organizations.
Welcome to the world governed by the global financial Mafiocracy – because if you’re not concerned, you’re not paying attention.
Now do you have some idea of why I have been calling for their heads? And I mean that literally! These scumbags must be brought to justice before they blow up the entire financial world and the lives of BILLIONS of people. The damage they have already caused is un-calculable. Murder, rape, incest, theft, is their daily activity. They are the scum of the earth. They should be subjected to the most pain-full death ever invented.

A Louisiana police chief ushers a drunken woman to his office and forces her into sex.
A Utah officer takes advantage of a suicidal woman before escorting her into a hospital.
A Buffalo cop insists a vulnerable mother give in to him whenever he pounds on her door.
In the past decade, a law enforcement official was caught in a case of sexual abuse or misconduct at least every five days. Nearly all were men. Nearly all victims were women, and a surprising number were adolescents.
Details of more than 700 credible cases from the past 10 years are now available, county by county and state by state, from The Buffalo News.
No federal agency tracks job-related sexual misconduct by police officers. So The Buffalo News combed through news reports and court records to compile a database. More than 700 credible cases from the past 10 years are now detailed, county by county and state by state.
The violators pulled over drivers to fish for dates, had sex on duty with willing or reluctant partners, extorted favors by threatening arrest and committed rapes.
In more than 70 percent of the cases, officers wielded their authority over motorists, crime victims, informants, students and young people in job-shadowing programs. Then there were covert acts. One officer on patrol would hunt for WiFi signals and use them to collect child pornography. Another secretly photographed girls’ underwear.
The numbers are almost certainly higher. Sex offenses go widely unreported even when cops are not suspects. Victims may be even less likely to report offenses when they fear it will be their word versus an officer’s. Police often prey on accursers with weak credibility, such as prostitutes, addicts or parolees.
“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” said former police officer Timothy M. Maher, now a criminal justice professor in St. Louis, whose research shows that police sexual misconduct is under-reported. Maher says most officers do not commit felony sex crimes. But he believes many offenses never come to light or are swept under the rug.
Detailed in The News data are some 160 offenses against young people. An Alabama officer raped a 13-year-old girl attending the school where he served as a crossing guard. A cop in North Carolina told a 14-year-old crime victim that having sex with him would prove she was telling the truth.
A school resource officer in Arkansas climbed into a student’s bedroom window. He was 48. She was 16.
Sex-related misconduct generates more citizen complaints than any factor except excessive force, the Cato Institute, a libertarian think-tank tracking police wrongdoing, found in a 2010 study.
A Niagara Falls patrolman completed a pat-down then let his hands roam over a woman’s breasts, buttocks and between her legs. A California officer sent to quiet a loud party stripped down and splashed into a pool of women. A Texas officer told a motorist she could drive off without a ticket if she let him lick her feet or take her underwear.
Norm Stamper hit the streets as a San Diego patrolman in 1966 and ended his career 34 years later as police chief in Seattle. During those decades, Stamper said he saw racism, sexism and misogyny in the ranks. He saw cops come to believe that no one may defy them.
In 2005, he published a book that included a chapter called “sexual predators in uniform.”
“You won’t find a major law enforcement agency that has been around for more than five minutes that has not had a chapter in its history of sexual abuse by a police officer on duty,” Stamper said.
“We’ve got too many rapists in uniform.”
A picture emerges
The News data includes only cases in which an officer’s bad acts were linked to police work. That doesn’t mean all were on duty. Jeffrey Pelo, a sergeant in Bloomington, Ill., stalked and raped women in his private time but used police resources to find his victims, so the data includes his case. Minneapolis Officer Bradley Schnickel used no police resources as he sought adolescent girls for sex. The data omits his name, and the names of hundreds more officers convicted of serious sex crimes unconnected to their jobs.
All but five of the officers named in the data are men, though women make up 13 percent of sworn officers nationwide. Among the five women: A Texas probation officer struck up a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy she supervised, and went to prison; and a Georgia sheriff’s deputy who failed to provide backup to a colleague because she was off having sex. She resigned.
Most of the offenders had enough time on the job to learn to evade varying levels of supervision. The officers averaged 38 years of age, with nine years of service to their departments, when those factors could be determined.
Just 6 percent were department rookies who started to strike soon after hitting the streets. A 25-year-old in Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C., for example, pressured a half-dozen women for sex during traffic stops. He went to prison. So did a rookie in Houston, Texas, who took his victims to a remote area and forced them to strip.
Road cops are most likely to offend. About 72 percent were patrol deputies, troopers, officers, constables. Others were detectives, officers with rank, or federal agents, federal security workers, or parole or probation officers.
About 3 percent held high-level posts: chiefs, deputy chiefs and sheriffs, such as the sheriff in Custer County, Okla., who forced female drug defendants into sex with him in exchange for better treatment. Some 28 percent were suspected of engaging with more than one person.
Many of those named faced only departmental charges and were fired or resigned. Some have been indicted and their cases are still playing out. But most officers in the data, 63 percent, were convicted of a crime after being accused of various acts of abuse, assault or misconduct.
A case in Buffalo years ago looks typical.
A knock on the door
At around 9 on a November night in 2004, a single mother gassed up her Honda as she headed out to return a book to a fellow University at Buffalo student. Joyce Pecky was 42, a slender 5 feet, 5 inches tall, with reddish brown hair falling to her shoulders. She was determined to write a new chapter in her life, and it would go like this: Bid farewell to a drug habit, earn a master’s degree in nutrition and provide solid support to the 6-year-old daughter riding in the back seat.

The Buffalo News does not identify the victims of sex-related crimes, but Pecky says the problem of police sexual misconduct has been in the shadows for too long. She wants to speak publicly about her ordeal. Her account:
Standing at the pump in jeans and a heavy sweatshirt, Pecky was unaware of a police car nearby. But soon after she returned the nozzle and angled toward Bailey Avenue, a squad car threw streaks of light across the road, and Pecky slowed to a stop on a dark East Side street.
Pecky handed over her license, and the officer left her for a few minutes. Then he reappeared with an odd request, she said. Would she walk with him to the rear of her car?
Once there, the cop moaned things in her ear, crude things, she said. He implied that she was out searching for drugs and questioned whether she was a good mother for having her little girl out so late, Pecky recalled.
Pecky said she was stunned — and bending backward over the trunk of her car to get some space.
Can I please leave? Pecky asked again and again, she said.
Finally, Officer Greg O’Shei told her she could drive home. He would not arrest her.
O’Shei, as he described himself for a deposition years later, was a large man, about 6 feet 3 and 215 pounds. When he stopped Pecky he was 41, with a family at home. He first donned a Buffalo police badge nine years before the traffic stop, but a brain injury suffered in an on-duty crash had idled him for years and played games with his memory and temperament. If he acted oddly at times, the Buffalo Police Department wasn’t one in which an officer questioned another about such things, he said.
O’Shei would also say he had seen Pecky in the past trying to score drugs and wanted to know who was selling them. She insists she had never seen him before. Regardless, Pecky realized the officer never called in her information from the traffic stop. If he had, he would have learned she was driving with a suspended license.
Pecky returned to her flat on Mineral Springs Road, put her daughter to bed, then went to bed herself.
At 2 a.m., someone pounded on the door.
“I just wanted to make sure you are OK,” O’Shei explained, according to Pecky.
O’Shei was still on duty but miles outside his Ferry-Fillmore district. Pecky cracked opened the door, and seconds later he was roaming the apartment. He complained it was messy, questioned her mothering skills and mentioned the child could be taken away with one arrest, Pecky said.
With the girl waking up, Pecky persuaded O’Shei to leave. But he came back the next day, when he was off duty and the girl was at school, and got the sexual favor he wanted from Joyce Pecky.
O’Shei came by again and again for months while on duty, Pecky said. Sometimes she and her daughter would hide, pretending no one was home as he banged on the door and the windows and shined his flashlight inside. But when they hid, she said, O’Shei returned the very next night.
Looking the other way
One author called sexual abuse by law enforcement authorities “the police violence we aren’t talking about.”
When people die at the hands of police, reports are filed and the public responds. Not so with sex acts.
Some researchers say the problem is more widespread than many administrators realize.
Just two years before Officer O’Shei first banged on Joyce Pecky’s door, Criminal Justice Professor Samuel Walker of the University of Nebraska at Omaha used the term “driving while female” after seeing that cases of police sexual abuse tend to begin with traffic stops. Among his examples: A Suffolk County officer on New Year’s Day 2001 forced a woman to strip and walk home wearing only her underpants. A California Highway Patrol trooper in 1986 strangled a 20-year-old college student, Cara Knott, and threw her body off a bridge.
Walker’s report, written with Dawn Irlbeck, said sex offenses can multiply when departments allow sexist cultures, tolerate wrongdoing, ignore citizen complaints and fail to supervise. They suggested departments collect data on the types of drivers their officers pull over — do they tend to be young women? — and hire more women because female officers generate few sexual misconduct complaints.
Timothy Maher began as a police officer in 1985.
“When I went through the academy 30 years ago, it was never brought up,” he said. “Yet working the road … I was seeing all kinds of at least minor stuff. But it was enough to get some guys fired if they had been caught.”
As a criminal justice professor at the University of Missouri at St. Louis, Maher presented male police chiefs in the St. Louis metropolitan area with a questionnaire asking about the prevalence of sexual misconduct. Maher compiled the answers and learned that the chiefs, on average, suspected nearly one in five officers were committing at least low-level acts that would nonetheless violate department rules, like pulling over women drivers to fish for dates.
Maher surveyed road cops in and around St. Louis. On average, they suspected it was about one in every three officers violating the rules. Then he surveyed just female officers around St. Louis. On average, they suspected that even more cops – better than two out of every five – were probably committing at least noncriminal offenses.
Maher says too many police officers fail to report bad conduct they know about.
“It’s that tolerance level,” he said. “Even when some of them hear about it or know about it, they tolerate it and don’t report on it.”
A school resource officer in Atlanta molested a 12-year-old developmentally disabled girl as he drove her around town after school one day. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
A New Mexico officer who investigated cases of child abuse and sex crimes sexually assaulted a high school intern trying to learn about police work. He was sentenced to nine years in prison.
An officer in Cleveland, Ohio, videotaped himself having sex, in uniform, with a 15-year-old he met while working security at a recreation center. He was sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison.
More than 160 people — 23 percent of those in the data — are included because authorities alleged they trafficked in child pornography or engaged inappropriately with young people under the age of 18. They were students, young motorists, runaways, teen prostitutes.
About 5 percent of the offenders – 34 cops – had been assigned to work with young people, typically as school resource officers, DARE officers or leaders in their department’s Explorer programs, which acquaint young people with law enforcement careers.
Some were caught grooming young people for physical relationships that never began.
A Kentucky officer sent suggestive texts to a student and was fired. A school resource officer in North Carolina sent suggestive pictures and was stripped of his law-enforcement certification and placed on probation. A police chief, also in North Carolina, engaged in sexually graphic computer chats, sometimes from his office, with people he thought were underage females.
In reality, they were criminal investigators. He was sent to a federal prison for more than 12 years.
The power imbalance
In Buffalo, Joyce Pecky agonized about her situation with Officer O’Shei. He would park his patrol car outside her home and bang at her door with his expectations.
If she reported him, would the department take her seriously?
She had a record.
If O’Shei found out, would it only get worse for her?
A woman in Jacksonville, Texas, accused an officer of rape. When he later spotted her on the street, he wrapped a belt around her neck and dragged her toward his van. She escaped, and he was sentenced to 12 years in prison.
In many cases in The News’ database, officers preyed on women with weak credibility: prostitutes, ex-convicts, women named in arrest warrants, drug informants, drug abusers, women on probation or parole.
Who would believe their word over a police officer’s?
But to prove her claim, a parolee in Broward County, Fla., set up a hidden camera to record her parole officer forcing her into sex in her home under the threat of imprisonment. The parole officer was fired and now faces charges.
When confronting overwhelming evidence against them, accused officers often argue that the sex was consensual – forbidden by department rules, but not sexual assault and certainly not rape.
In his December 2010 deposition, Officer O’Shei said he believed the sex with Pecky and others was consensual.
O’Shei admitted he knocked on windows and peered into Pecky’s apartment with his flashlight. He agreed he said things that could be taken as threats. He admitted she told him she wasn’t interested.
Yes, he mentioned to her what could happen if a Child Protective Services worker ever showed up. Yes, his gun remained on him at all times. And yes, Pecky was vulnerable to his police powers.
But O’Shei did not think Pecky or any of the other women would report him – “because I didn’t feel we were involved in a situation where one felt compelled to do something,” he explained.
“As you look back now you realize otherwise?” a lawyer asked.
“Yes,” he said.
Day in court
The chances for criminal convictions and stiff sentences depend on the strength of the case, a victim’s willingness to testify, the skill of prosecutors, a jury’s attitudes toward police and the accuser.
An officer in Indianapolis threatened to arrest a 19-year-old woman on a warrant if she did not have sex with him. He was charged with seven felonies, including rape, but was allowed to plead guilty to sexual misconduct and official misconduct. Instead of jail time, he received two years of home confinement, a year of probation and an order to register as a sex offender while on probation.
A cop in Edgewater, Fla., had a woman perform a sex act on him or be arrested for marijuana possession. He was sentenced to a year of probation but had to surrender his certification as a law enforcement officer.
In Flagstaff, Ariz., a state officer out for a night of drinking and entertainment flashed his badge to get into a music venue for free and later threatened to have the bouncers who evicted him arrested. He had walked up to a friend of a friend and rubbed his hand up her skirt and across her genitals. Convicted of sexual abuse, the officer was placed on probation for two years and fired.
With a few fellow cops in court to support their colleague, the judge lectured the victim: “If you hadn’t been there that night, none of this would have happened to you,” Judge Jacqueline Hatch said, according to the Arizona Daily Sun. The judge later apologized.
Some officers go to prison for decades.
In New Orleans, an officer who took a woman in his custody to a warehouse and sexually assaulted her was given 45 years.
An officer in Anchorage, Alaska, received 87 years for sexually assaulting several women.
A deputy in Cobb County, Ga., grew angry at a waitress as he drank in a bar. He accused the woman, who spoke little English, of stealing his cell phone. He flashed his badge, took her to the apartment complex where they both lived and raped her and beat her at gunpoint. A judge sentenced him to 25 years to life.
Victims can sue police officers or other law enforcement officials accused of such wrongdoing. They can go after the officers themselves or their supervisors who fail to address known wrongdoing or are grossly negligent in their supervision.
To reach the deeper pockets of government, plaintiffs must link the municipality to the crime by some fact other than the officer’s mere employment. Was the misconduct part of a policy or pattern? Was it so consistent and widespread that officials should have known about it? Did a failure to monitor, supervise or train amount to deliberate indifference to the rights of victims? Was the supervisor grossly negligent?
Houston Officer Abraham Joseph used his patrol car to pull over female motorists and would rape them. But the victims lost their civil rights claims against the city after a judge ruled Houston’s practices for hiring, training and supervising officers were not so poor that they were unconstitutional.
Civil outcomes are all over the board. The City of San Diego paid $1.3 million to settle a lawsuit filed by two women who had been groped by a San Diego officer.
In their lawsuits against the City of Buffalo, Joyce Pecky and two other plaintiffs have so far collected nothing.
Early this year, dozens of organizations advocating for women of color told the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing that police sexual misconduct is “by no means an isolated phenomenon” and requires “a policy response by law enforcement agencies.”
The wheels for a policy response were already in motion. Four years earlier, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, in Alexandria, Va., created a “working group on sexual offenses by police officers.” Named to the group were professors Walker and Maher.
The international association, widely respected by police administrators, stated in 2011 that sexual misconduct by police represents a “grave abuse of authority” and warrants “the full attention of law-enforcement leadership.” The IACP presented a guide to help administrators recognize and deal with cases and prevent new episodes.
No one at the organization can say how many of the nation’s 18,000 police agencies follow the guidelines. But the volume of incidents coming to light has not abated. In 2014, newspapers and television stations around the country reported 105 new and credible cases of job-related sexual misconduct by police.
It was the highest annual total in the 10 years’ of data, and an average of two cases every week.
He is ‘the cops’
Joyce Pecky never called the police about Officer O’Shei. But Susan Phister did.
Like Pecky, Phister wanted to talk publicly about her experience. Ten years ago, Phister’s life was a dangerous mix of drug abuse and sex for money, she said, and O’Shei would show up expecting her to give in to avoid arrest.
Phister would agree with O’Shei when he says he never worried about being caught. She recalled looking out the window after one encounter. As O’Shei slept, his squad car remained as he left it — the emergency lights swirling, the driver’s door open and the dome light shining. “It was lit up like a firecracker,” Phister said in an interview.
O’Shei became enraged, she said, if she ever tried to say no or could not be found. She was afraid of him and went to the police department when she couldn’t take it anymore. Phister produced text messages from O’Shei to back up her story.
O’Shei in 2006 admitted using his police powers to coerce sexual favors. He pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors — linked to his conduct with Pecky and Phister. Neither was a sex charge. O’Shei was sentenced to probation, not jail. While he had already resigned, the conviction ensured he would not be a police officer in New York.
Pecky today spends hours with her battered laptop computer, searching for cases of police sexual misconduct from around the country. She studies policy statements and research on the problem of predators in uniform. She read the reports by Samuel Walker in Omaha and Timothy Maher in St. Louis and read former Seattle Chief Norm Stamper’s chapter on the subject.
She plans to write a book of her own.
She is angry. Why don’t police departments accept responsibility for their offenders when facing lawsuits? she wonders. Why does the FBI take on so few “color of law” violations involving sexual abuse? Federal authorities were active in less than 10 percent of the cases in The News’ data.
Pecky never got her master’s degree. During the months that O’Shei hounded her she started using drugs again.
No one took her daughter away.
Now 16, the girl is studious, pleasant and poised. She still remembers a night when she was about 7.
As the officer pounded on the door and peered inside, the girl and her mother crouched near the floor to hide.
“I remember telling my mother ‘I’m scared.’ ”
She said she suggested to her mother that they “call the cops” then immediately thought better of it.
He is “the cops,” she realized.
“It was actually terrifying,” she said.
Luis Edward Hermosillo
U.S. Border Patrol Agent Luis Hermosillo in June 2009 allowed a woman, with her two children in the car, to pass into the country through his checkpoint near Mecca, Calif. Then he hurried to his vehicle and pulled her over, on the pretext that he had forgotten to search her luggage.
Hermosillo ordered her out of her car and, in the course of a pat down, penetrated her with his fingers, according to her civil lawsuit. Then he pulled her into his car, started kissing her buttocks over her skirt and penetrated her again with his fingers, her court complaint said. In time, she was allowed to drive off,
It was easy for her to identify the agent who had assaulted her. Hermosillo had given her his phone number, in case she would like to go out on a date, according to a statement from the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Homeland Security. Hermosillo in 2012 pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault and kidnapping and was sentenced to eight years in a California prison.

State police in Arkansas were waiting for him.
They were told by the parents of a 16-year-old girl that something was wrong with the attention that Neil Hamilton Riley, a 48-year-old school resource officer, was lavishing on their daughter. So the state investigators had some advance notice and were in the family’s home when Riley clambered into the girl’s bedroom window around 1 on a February morning in 2010.
Later that day, Riley resigned from the police department in Searcy, Ark., which had employed him for almost eight years. He had met the girl through his work at Ahlf Junior High, a prosecutor on the case told the Associated Press.
Some parents and students interviewed by a local television station reacted with disgust at Riley’s conduct. One person told the station that Riley and his wife had split about five months earlier.
As incredible as the circumstances are, The News found that it was hardly a unique event. Over a 10-year span, more than 30 officers assigned to work with young people as school resource officers, DARE officers or as leaders of Explorer programs were accused of crossing the line.
Riley’s lawyer had sought probation for his client. But Riley said little as a judge in 2011 ordered him to spend 15 years in prison.

Ryan G. Warme
This is the sexual misconduct that Ryan Warme admitted: In July 2007 he encountered a woman parked in a high-crime area of Niagara Falls. He ordered her out of the car for a pat down. “Instead of stopping once the ‘pat down’ was finished,” prosecutors wrote, Warme touched the woman’s “breasts, buttocks and genital area” without her consent. As a result, Warme deprived the woman of her civil rights.
A federal grand jury in 2008 had accused the officer of much more: rape and sodomy while on duty and receiving sexual favors from a prostitute while on duty. In one case, according to court records, Warme showed up unannounced at the apartment of a female acquaintance, stripped off his police gear and forced himself on her. When she protested he told her, “Shut up, you know you want this,” according to an FBI affidavit.
Meanwhile, Warme was suspected of selling and using cocaine, and prosecutors wanted a conviction on that conduct as well. As part of his plea agreement, Warme admitted to drug-related wrongdoing and a charge related to his possession of a firearm.
“I have shamed my family and humiliated myself,” Warme wrote in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Arcara before he was sentenced in 2010 to almost 14 years in prison. “There are no excuses.
I crossed the line and used drugs. I knew better.
When Warme stood before him in an orange jumpsuit, Arcara wondered what had gone wrong with him. He’d been a talented athlete from a solid family.
“It’s my fault,” Warme said, “and now I have to pay for it.”

Earl Theriot was the police chief in Sorrento, La. – population 1,500 – when he received a call in November 2013 about an unresponsive woman in a gas station’s parking lot.
Theriot drove her back to his office and, taking advantage of her drunken state, had her perform sex acts. When FBI agents investigated her complaint weeks later, Theriot told them he only drove the woman straight home, he did not know she had been in his office, that he was never alone with her there, and they had no sexual contact.
Theriot admitted to the lies and the sexual misconduct in federal court. But he never went to jail. His age, 66, his health problems and his willingness to immediately resign worked in his favor when sentenced.
The judge gave him a lecture. “You believed yourself to be above the law,” he told Theriot, according to television station WAFB. But Theriot was sentenced to just two years’ probation and fined $2,500.
The News was unable to contact Theriot. But the former police chief told a local TV station that he had been sufficiently punished because the matter “cost me my law enforcement career and brought embarrassment to my family and the town of Sorrento.”

Nelson Tuatagaloa and another officer in West Jordan, Utah, responded in September 2008 to a call about a woman sitting in her car and contemplating suicide over family and personal problems. The woman had been drinking and had a gun, according to the Deseret News.
In time, Tuatagaloa offered to drive the woman to the Jordan Valley Hospital and placed her, handcuffed, in the front seat of his squad car. But he later removed the cuffs, drove her to a dark part of the hospital parking lot and engaged with her in sex acts without her consent.
Tuatagaloa later resigned from the department and, with his trial about to begin, pleaded guilty in February 2010 to two felony counts of custodial sexual relations.
He was sentenced to a year in jail and three years of probation, and his police officer certification was revoked.

THE GENERAL LEADING the U.S. military’s hidden war in Africa says the continent is now home to nearly 50 terrorist organizations and “illicit groups” that threaten U.S. interests. And today, gunmen reportedly yelling “Allahu Akbar” stormed the Radisson Blu hotel in Mali’s capital and seized several dozen hostages. U.S. special operations forces are “currently assisting hostage recovery efforts,” a Pentagon spokesperson said, and U.S. personnel have “helped move civilians to secured locations, as Malian forces clear the hotel of hostile gunmen.”
In Mali, groups like Ansar Dine and the Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa have long posed a threat. Major terrorist groups in Africa include al Shabaab, Boko Haram and al Qaeda in the Islamic Magreb (AQIM). In the wake of the Paris attacks by ISIS, attention has been drawn to ISIS affiliates in Egypt and Libya, too. But what are the dozens of other groups in Africa that the Pentagon is fighting with more special operations forces, more outposts, and more missions than ever? For the most part, the Pentagon won’t say.
Brigadier General Donald Bolduc, chief of U.S. Special Operations Command Africa, made a little-noticed comment earlier this month about these terror groups. After describing ISIS as a transnational and transregional threat, he went on to tell the audience of the Defense One Summit, “Although ISIS is a concern, so is al Shabaab, so is the Lord’s Resistance Army in Central Africa and the 43 other illicit groups that operate in the area … Boko Haram, AQIM, and other small groups in that area.”
Bolduc mentioned only a handful of terror groups by name, so I asked for clarification from the Department of Defense, Africa Command (AFRICOM), and Special Operations Command Africa (SOCAFRICA). None offered any names, let alone a complete accounting. SOCAFRICA did not respond to multiple queries by The Intercept. AFRICOM spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Anthony Falvo would only state, “I have nothing further for you.”
While the State Department maintains a list of foreign terrorist organizations (FTOs), including 10 operating in Africa (ISIS, Boko Haram, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, al Shabaab, AQIM, Ansaru, Ansar al-Din, Ansar al-Shari’a in Tunisia, as well as Libya’s Ansar al-Shari’a in Benghazi and Ansar al-Shari’a in Darnah), it “does not provide the DoD any legal or policy approval,” according to Lt. Col. Michelle Baldanza, a Defense Department spokesperson.
“The DoD does not maintain a separate or similar list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations for the government,” she said in an email to The Intercept. “In general, not all groups of armed individuals on the African continent that potentially present a threat to U.S. interests would be subject to FTO. DoD works closely with the Intel Community, Inter-Agency, and the [National Security Council] to continuously monitor threats to U.S. interests; and when required, identifies, tracks, and presents options to mitigate threats to U.S. persons overseas.”
This isn’t the first time the Defense Department has been unable or unwilling to name the groups it’s fighting. In 2013, The Intercept’s Cora Currier, then writing for ProPublica, asked for a full list of America’s war-on-terror enemies and was told by a Pentagon spokesman that public disclosure of the names could increase the prestige and recruitment prowess of the groups and do “serious damage to national security.” Jack Goldsmith, a professor at Harvard Law School who served as a legal counsel during the George W. Bush administration, told Currier that the Pentagon’s rationale was weak and there was a “very important interest in the public knowing who the government is fighting against in its name.”
The secret of whom the U.S. military is fighting extends to Africa. Since 9/11, U.S. military efforts on the continent have grown in every conceivable way, from funding and manpower to missions and outposts, while at the same time the number of transnational terror groups has increased in linear fashion, according to the military. The reasons for this are murky. Is it a spillover from events in the Middle East and Central Asia? Are U.S. operations helping to spawn and spread terror groups? Is the Pentagon inflating the terror threat for its own gain? Is the rise of these terrorist organizations due to myriad local factors? Or more likely, is it a combination of these and other reasons? The task of answering these questions is made more difficult when no one in the military is willing to name more than a handful of the transnational terror groups that are classified as America’s enemies.
Before 9/11, Africa seemed to be free of transnational terror threats, according to the U.S. government.
In 2000, for example, a report prepared under the auspices of the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Studies Institute examined the “African security environment.” While noting the existence of “internal separatist or rebel movements” in “weak states,” as well as militias and “warlord armies,” it made no mention of Islamic extremism or major transnational terror threats.
In early 2002, a senior Pentagon official speaking on background told reporters that the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan might drive “terrorists” out of that nation and into Africa. “Terrorists associated with al Qaeda and indigenous terrorist groups have been and continue to be present in this region,” he said. “These terrorists will, of course, threaten U.S. personnel and facilities.”
Pressed about genuine transnational threats, the official drew attention to Somali militants, specifically several hundred members of al Itihaad al Islamiya—a forerunner of al Shabaab — but admitted that even the most extreme members “really have not engaged in acts of terrorism outside Somalia.” Questioned about ties between Osama bin Laden’s core al Qaeda group and African militants, the official offered tenuous links, like bin Laden’s “salute” to Somali fighters who killed U.S. troops during the infamous 1993 Black Hawk Down incident.
The U.S. nonetheless deployed military personnel to Africa in 2002, while the State Department launched a big-budget counterterrorism program, known as the Pan Sahel Initiative, to enhance the capabilities of the militaries of Chad, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger. In 2005, that program expanded to include Algeria, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, and Tunisia and was renamed the Trans-Sahara Counterterrorism Partnership.
In the years that followed, the U.S. increased its efforts. In 2014, for example, the U.S. carried out 674 military missions across the continent — an average of nearly two per day and an increase of about 300 percent since U.S. Africa Command was launched in 2008. The U.S. also took part in a number of multinational military interventions, including a coalition war in Libya, assistance to French and African forces fighting militants in Central African Republic and Mali, and the training and funding of African proxies to do battle against extremist groups like al Shabaab and Boko Haram.
The U.S. has also carried out a shadow war of special ops raids, drone strikes and other attacks, as well as an expanding number of training missions by elite forces. U.S. special operations teams are now deployed to 23 African countries “seven days a week, 24/7,” according to Bolduc. “The most effective thing that we do is about 1,400 SOF operators and supporters integrated with our partner nation, integrated with our allies and other coalition partners in a way that allows us to take advantage of each other’s capabilities,” he said.
The U.S. military has also set up a network of bases — although it is loath to refer to them in such terms. A recent report by The Intercept, relying on classified documents leaked by a whistleblower, detailed an archipelago of outposts integral to a secret drone assassination program that was based at the premier U.S. facility on the African continent, Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti. That base alone has expanded since 2002 from 88 acres to nearly 600 acres, with more than $600 million allocated or awarded for projects and $1.2 billion in construction and improvements planned for the future.
A continent relatively free of transnational terror threats in 2001 is — after almost 14 years of U.S. military efforts — now rife with them, in the Pentagon’s view. Bolduc said the African continent is “as lethal and dangerous an environment as anywhere else in the world,” and specifically invoked ISIS, which he called “a transnational threat, a transregional threat, as are all threats that we deal with in Africa.” But the Pentagon would not specify whether the threat levels are stable, increasing, or decreasing. “I can’t get into any details regarding threats or future operations,” Lt. Col. Baldanza stated. “I can say that we will continue to work with our African partners to enable them in their counter-terrorism efforts as they further grow security and stability in the region.”
In the end, Bolduc tempered expectations that his troops might be able to transform the region in any significant way. “The military can only get you so far,” he told the Defense One Summit audience. “So if I’m asked to build a counter-violent extremist organization capability in a particular country, I can do that … but if there’s not … a valid institution to plug it into, then we are there for a long time.”

Are We Now Witnessing The Buildup To The Final False Flag That Will Lead To Martial Law And The Globalists ‘Endgame’?
By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die
An absolutely bizarre story from the NY Daily News tells us that just days after ISIS released a video threatening New York City with a terrorist attack, 150 people on a plane flight from Mexico to JFK airport were permitted to skip customs and leave JFK without having their passports or bags checked as also shared in the 3rd video below.
In just the latest event that makes us believe that certain members of the current administration want terrorists to be successful in America, we also look at this story from Intellihub where we’re given more proof that this administration is bringing refugees (and possible terrorists) into the country under the cover of darkness aboard commercial airline flights.
When we tie in this information with news from a former FBI official who recently went on Fox News to discuss Obama’s dangerous plan to import thousands of Syrian refugees, we see a highly ‘orchestrated event’ (in former FBI assistant director James Kallstrom’s own words!) unfolding that may soon lead to the total destruction of America and the implementation of martial law all across the country as shared in the 2nd video below.
With new claims coming out that the Pentagon actually doctors ISIS intelligence to fit the White House as shared in this Daily News story and news coming out that both the FBI and the DHS oppose the new refugee screening bill recently passed by the House of Representatives we have to ask if we’re now being set up for the slaughter with more than 1 out of every 4 Americans now believing that government IS the enemy of the American people?
More than 1 in 4 Americans believe that the government is the enemy, according to a new poll.
Pew Research Center found that 27 percent of registered voters say they think of government as an enemy, up 8 points since 1996. The latest poll looked at general public opinion regarding the federal government.
More than a third (35 percent) of Republicans believe the federal government is the enemy, while 34 percent of Independents believe the same. The poll found that half of all Democrats (50 percent) view the government as a friend and only 12 percent see it as the enemy.
Other findings include that few think the government is run for the benefit of all the people and that it is viewed as wasteful and inefficient. About 3 in 4 Americans say the federal government is “run by a few big interests” and 57 percent say the “government is almost always wasteful and inefficient.”
Why has former FBI assistant director Kallstrom put himself in danger by telling us that letting potential terrorists into countries is an ‘orchestrated event’? Does he know something that we don’t know? Telling us that we have NO IDEA who the people are that we are letting into the country we quickly see, the handwriting is on the wall as govt prepares to brutally attack their own people while blaming it on the terrorists it’s continually flying into the country.
Why would Barack Obama (or other ‘globalist’ members of this administration) WANT a successful terrorist attack upon America? All we need to do is remember what happened here after 9/11 or what is happening in Paris now…a total crackdown on civil liberties, another uptick of the ‘surveillance state’ and the ‘need’ for a totalitarian government to ‘fix’ what’s broken. Would totalitarian globalists intent upon implementing global government REALLY want another 9/11 in America? Of course they would! Much more below videos including X22Report in the 1st video telling us that the US government and Central banks are preparing for the final stages of collapse.
Is Barack Obama setting the stage for martial law in America by ushering terrorists in?
Why did customs let over 100 people just ‘leave’ upon arrival from Mexico when we KNOW that possible Syrian terrorists are trying to get into our country through our southern border? This incident reeks of being something other than we’re being told.
With news coming out of Russia that the US helped to created ISIS, will Americans finally get some truth about ISIS’ creation or will the globalists be successful at their next false flag in America, possibly a massive Paris-style massacre in several US locations or cities at the same time, forever silencing truth in this nation as martial law and total government censorship and complete dictatorship are brought in?
We know that there is a possibility, if slight, that the 2016 elections won’t be held in America, leaving Barack Obama a dictator and an America that will never learn truth from lies. Would a series of massive terrorist attacks upon America grant Mr. Obama his wish, endless terms in office, and an America that never finds out the truth? If massive attacks are launched upon Americans and in US cities, will those in Washington DC who are clearly aiding and abetting ISIS terrorists be held responsible for their actions?
We strongly believe that the next series of massive terrorist attacks upon America will lead to the globalists end game – a total crackdown on the few Rights that Americans still have remaining and the ‘new world order’ that the criminal elite globalists have been working towards for many years. We are running out of time America.
May God stand with the brave men and women across the nation in law enforcement and the US military who are diligently working to keep America safe – our thoughts and prayers for strength and protection are with you.

By LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD
As Winston Churchill noted in his indictment of appeasement of Nazi Germany in the 1930s, “there is a great danger in refusing to believe things you do not like.”
Barack Hussein Obama is succeeding in his fundamental transformation; that is, dismantling the United States as a capitalist republic, based on Judeo-Christian democratic principles.
Obama is dangerous as a President because his ideologies, Marxism and sympathy for Islam, drive him to pursue policies that run counter to the national interest, the well-being of the American people and, quite frankly, the survival of the country. His mendacity is compounded by his arrogance and narcissism that prevent him from accepting responsibility and learning from his mistakes. He is not on our side.
People ask – How can this be happening to our country? What can we do to stop it?
It can happen because the political-media establishment does not consider the United States “our” country. The political-media establishment considers the United States “their” country, in which ordinary Americans are permitted to live as long as we elect those they want elected and continue to pay taxes to support their lavish life styles and to maintain the corrupt status quo. Welcome to feudal America.
It can happen because, like Obama, the Democrat Party, the liberal media and academia are populated with the same Islamo-Marxists, a totalitarian marriage of convenience, distinguished by the traits they share – their hatred of Western civilization and a belief that the United States is the embodiment of evil on earth. While Islamic radicals seek to purge the world of heresies and of the infidels who practice them, leftist radicals seek to purge society of the vices allegedly spawned by capitalism — those being racism, sexism, imperialism, and greed. Through unregulated immigration, Democrats seek to alter the demographics of the United States to create a permanent one-party state to implement their far-left totalitarian agenda. Islamists have something similar in mind, albeit even more brutal and oppressive.
It can happen because America’s domestic enemies promulgate notions that attack the basis of Western Judeo-Christian civilization, which emphasizes the uniqueness and sacredness of the individual. They also promote policies that weaken our ability to transmit to the next generation the values and traditions upon which the United States was built e.g. the Common Core assault on American education. Anti-American, messianic political movements can only succeed when the individual believes that his or her actions are determined, not by personal freedom endowed by the Creator, but by the destiny of the community, endowed by a ruling elite of commissars or mullahs.
In can happen in any otherwise sophisticated society that loses a sense of its own history, succumbs to a present-tense culture and embraces the false promises of a leftist utopia in order to generate the truly blessed-out and vacant servitude required by the Obama strategy. Using media deception and historical revisionism, the low-information voter will slouch towards Obama’s utopia by a combination of governmental coercion as in George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four” and the hedonist nihilism of a painless, amusement-sodden, and stress-free consensus managed by the nanny-state found in Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World.
It can happen because the Republican establishment and its propaganda arm, Fox News, choose not to expose and oppose Obama to any extent that it might place in jeopardy their position as junior partners in the corrupt political-media status quo. They are funded by and serve the Chamber of Commerce and a broader class of wealthy global financiers, locusts, who view America as just another landmass and people to exploit. Republicans are not in Congress to represent their constituency or solve the nation’s problems, but to perpetuate themselves in office. As the Republican establishment’s grip on power becomes ever more tenuous, they will more aggressively oppose internal political challenges, whether it is from Donald Trump or the Tea Party and they more eagerly work together with Obama and the Democrats.
Case in point is the cynical piece of legislative window dressing, but appropriately-named SAFE ACT (American Security Against Foreign Enemies), recently passed by a bipartisan “veto-proof” 289-137 majority in the Paul Ryan (R-WI)-led House of Representatives. It is being heralded by the political-media establishment as a bill that would “erect high hurdles for Syrian and Iraqi refugees coming to American shores” and “require new FBI background checks and individual sign-offs from three high-ranking U.S. officials before any refugee could come to the U.S. from Iraq or Syria.”
Those descriptions are nonsensical at best, outright lies at worst. FBI Director James Comey already testified before the House Committee on Homeland Security that the federal government does not have the ability to conduct thorough background checks for terrorist ties on all Syrian refugees. The legislation does not cover potential terrorists coming from countries other than Iraq and Syria. Finally, the SAFE ACT gives final approval authority for entry solely to the Obama Administration, which has vowed to flood the country with refugees i.e. to facilitate a Muslim invasion of the U.S. similar to that we are witnessing in Europe, all financed by George Soros. The SAFE ACT does not provide physical safety for the American people, but it does provide political safety for the Republican establishment in the form of disinformation and legislative legerdemain.
In essence, the Republican establishment, in choosing to collaborate with Obama and the Democrats, is choosing national suicide. They prefer that option to representative government.
What can we do to stop it?
More than anything else, the political-media establishment does not want the American people to take back our country. The legislation, executive orders and judicial decisions emanating from Washington D.C. are geared to maintain the status quo or enhance the power of the federal government over the American people.
More than any other time in our history has the separation between the rulers and the ruled been as great and it bears comparison to the events leading up to the American Revolution. Whenever the interests of government officials are in such stark conflict with those of the people, tyranny ensues.
Frederick Douglass wrote: “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
I think the American people are running out of words.

What’s the big deal here Lawrence, what else would you expect from a government that can change the definition of the word Citizen, to Subject?
And when are you going to learn that America is a corporation totally under the control of the International Banking Cartel? Corporations are only interested in producing PROFITS not protecting A Constitution! As a matter of fact the U.S. Corporation has it’s own Constitution, and it sure as hell does not protect the People! Let’s all get on the same page Lawrence.
It is past time for the internet Patriots to wake up to the truth, learn it, and revise their commentary to fight it with all their might. This means educate the sheep non stop until they are as outraged as we all should be. We need to get this information out to a hundred million people ASAP. Why would an entire Nation accept a Corporation for a government? There is only one way for things to change for the better, and that is for a hundred million people to read this: You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher

Government engineered false-flag terrorism is a historically established fact. For centuries, political and financial elites have been sinking ships, setting buildings on fire, assassinating diplomats, overthrowing elected leaders, and blowing people up, then blaming these disasters on convenient scapegoats so that they can induce fear in the public and transfer more power to themselves. Skeptics might argue whether certain calamities have been proven beyond a reasonable doubt to be false-flag events, but no one can argue that such tactics have not been used by the establishment in the past. Governments have openly admitted to creating bloody and catalyzing tragedies under false pretenses, like Operation Gladio, a false-flag program in Europe supported by European and American covert agencies which lasted decades, from the 1950’s to the 1990’s.
Gladio utilized well-paid and trained rogue groups and agents as well as patsies, compartmentalized and controlled, who would commit atrocities against the European public. These atrocities would then be blamed on “left wing extremists”, galvanizing the citizenry and political representatives towards the false East/West paradigm. The superficial motivation given by whistleblowers was that Gladio was to be used to keep the right wing in power. However, the broader and deeper goal was clearly to manipulate Europeans into accepting a unification mindset, paving the way for the eventual centralization of Europe into the EU supranational block. Gladio, is only one well documented example of false-flag terrorism being exploited by governments to mold mass psychology towards greater collectivism.
It is therefore vital that the public question the legitimacy of EVERY so-called “terrorist attack” or geopolitical incident, otherwise, we may find ourselves duped into supporting wars and unconstitutional actions that only end up poisoning our society and elevating tyrants.
Why do I believe a new false-flag event is imminent? America has not suffered a large scale terrorist attack for over 13 years, after all. I can only say that current trends and international developments seem to be spiraling towards a breaking point; a kind of singularity, and if you understand that the majority of these events are deliberately engineered, then you also understand that the inevitable singularity (or primary disaster) is engineered as well.
The foremost current threat and most useful scapegoat is, of course, the ISIS insurgency in the Middle East. If one’s source of information was the mainstream media alone, one might be inclined to believe that ISIS has materialized out of nowhere to become a menace so organized and effective it has eclipsed Al-Qaeda as the hot button boogeyman used by the establishment. ISIS is certainly a disturbing militant group that goes out of its way to play the villain, complete with scary Muslim clothing and beards, not to mention the severed heads and indiscriminate genocide. Where is Jack Bauer when you need him, right?
The cartoonish nature of ISIS is not accidental, but I can see why they frighten a subset of the American population; if I didn’t know that they were funded by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, with military aid from Israel, then I might find them a terrifying enigma as well.
ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was held at a U.S. run detention facility called Camp Bucca from 2005 until 2009. Before his imprisonment, Baghdadi’s friends and family reported him to be a “quiet, studious fellow who was also a talented soccer player”. Only one year after being released from U.S. detention, however, he was a fanatical Islamic extremist who would go on to command the ISIS caliphate. In 2011, the U.S. State Department listed Bagdhadi as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” with a bounty of $10 million. There is no public record as to why Baghdadi was originally detained.
Former U.S. Air Force security officer, James Skylar Gerrond, served at Camp Bucca while Bagdhadi was held there, and is quoted as saying “Many of us at Camp Bucca were concerned that instead of just holding detainees, we had created a pressure cooker for extremism.” Indeed…
Let’s look at the culmination of events that led to the current incarnation that is ISIS:
George W. Bush signed and Barack Obama enforced (sorry politifact cultists, but they are BOTH to blame) a new foreign policy framework which allowed the release of numerous (and now somehow radicalized) prisoners from facilities like Camp Bucca in 2009.
The Libyan civil war erupts, as “rebels” are aided by the CIA and multiple foreign governments. These are the same rebels who would ultimately participate in the Benghazi raid on a U.S. consulate/CIA complex.
Libyan agents along with CIA operatives move into Jordan, where they have been training Syrian insurgents for over a year (officially – much longer unofficially), and still train them to this day, despite the apprehensions of the Jordanian government.
Libyan insurgents along with newly trained operatives have also shifted into Syria, turning general civil unrest into outright war.
ISIS recently gave praise to one of its commanders, a man from Libya, who had fought in the Libyan civil war, and in Syria, and in Iraq.
The U.S. has been secretly arming and training ISIS extremists in Syria for years, but only at the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 did it begin a more open campaign to provide support.
The Israeli government also aided insurgent groups in Syria using airstrikes to cripple Syrian Government regional command centers. It is also currently providing medical aid to Syrian rebels.
It was insurgent Sunni majority groups, trained in Jordan and funded by Saudi Arabia that have linked with Saudi funded groups in Iraq to form what we now know as ISIS. These are NOT separate groups acting autonomously. These are U.S. backed organizations acting in concert, and coalescing into a single movement – ISIS.
Violent genocidal actions, mass executions, as well as torture have become the common calling card of the establishment organized Islamic insurgent groups. Despite this horrifying development, Barack Obama is STILL seeking over $500 million in aid to Syrian rebels, though the rhetoric now specifies that funds and arms will only go to “moderate and well-vetted” insurgents. As far as I can tell, there are no “moderate” insurgents in Syria; insurgents that are now moving into Iraq and bringing their distinct brand of barbarism with them.
On the Council On Foreign Relations website, the globalist think-tank argued that the inclusion of extremist Al-Qaeda elements in the Syrian insurgency “improved the moral” of the movement, stating that the “Free Syrian Army needs Al-Qaeda now”. The CFR acknowledges that the goal of Al-Qaeda operatives in Syria is not necessarily to overthrow Assad, but to establish an Islamic state. Despite this, the CFR still continues its support of the strategy to overthrow Assad.
In an absurd display of forced schizophrenia, globalist organizations along with the puppet White House now argue that the existence of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, the same ISIS insurgency THEY CREATED, requires the U.S. to execute air strikes and military intervention in the region. Of course, to remain “fair and balanced”, the White House proposes to strike Syrian Government targets as well in order to avoid “strengthening Assad”. Yeah, read that twice, folks…
Remember the Syrian crisis at the end of last year? Remember how the U.S. and Russia were on the verge of conflict over Obama’s funding of the insurgency as well as his proposal to provide air support? Well, now the plan is to utilize air strikes against the same insurgents we had originally planned to help with air strikes.
Now, I have asked this question in the past, and I’ll ask it again – Is it merely irony that the White House is going to war with the covert militant group it gave birth to?
No, it is not irony. It is planned. ISIS is the new and improved Al-Qaeda. All of the terrorist disaster scenarios showcased in propaganda shows like ’24’ that seem rather ridiculous to many Americans if plotted by Al-Qaeda goat herders hiding in caves in Afghanistan and Pakistan now become believable if plotted by highly organized and savvy ISIS operatives.
Don’t believe ISIS is savvy? I don’t either, aside from the CIA agents pulling their strings. However, DoD officials and others have been bombarding the mainstream media with one specific meme: ISIS is awesome!
Chuck Hagel, Department of Defense Secretary, has made statements claiming that “ISIL (ISIS) poses a threat greater than 9/11… “
“They’re beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology with a sophisticated strategic and tactical military prowess and they’re tremendously well-funded. This is way beyond anything we have seen. We must prepare for everything. Get Ready!”
U.S. Special Operations sources argue that ISIS is an “incredible fighting force”, acting more like a “state with a military” than a disorganized band of guerrillas. I would argue that ISIS tactics appear sophisticated exactly because they are receiving sophisticated direction from state funded covert intelligence agencies like the CIA.
Retired Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney recently revealed that he believed a new 9/11 event is looming, and I would like to note that even if this is true, the Neo-Conservatives are no more a solution to the problem than the Neo-Liberals.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee claims that ISIS members are “rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city…”
Governor Rick Perry of Texas (a Bilderberg attendee) claims that ISIS agents may have already crossed into the U.S. from Mexico.
In the meantime, Senators on both sides of the fake aisle are warning the Obama Administration that ISIS is the “best funded terror group in history”.
With all this hype circling ISIS, I have to suggest that maybe, just maybe, we are being given the ultimate scapegoat for the ultimate false flag attack. When building the narrative of a traditional story, the hero is really a secondary character, because the hero is only as impressive as the villain he must eventually defeat. If you look at mainstream media and geopolitics as a theater script, rather than a series of random events, it appears as though ISIS is being built up as a villain so pervasive and devious the group could accomplish ANYTHING.
I believe the time is in fact ripe for a large scale false-flag on American soil. It may be a singular attack limited to a city or region, or, numerous smaller attacks executed in concert. I see the media overload of ISIS fever as a means to condition the public to believe in the ISIS myth – the myth that they are a sophisticated international super-terrorist conglomerate; a real life Legion of Doom. If Americans are conned into buying this myth, they may also be fooled into abandoning their Constitutional liberties and natural freedoms in the face of a well planned attack blamed on ISIS elements. I believe there will likely come a day when the mere act of exposing the lie or standing against government overreach will be called “treason”, and people like myself will be labeled “no better than ISIS”.
If an attack does take place in the name of ISIS, it is vital that Americans remember that this is not the violent invasion of a foreign army, that there is no Islamic enemy except that which our government created, that this is not some unexpected form of “blowback” from terrorists who used to be our allies, that this is an engineered attack by contracted employees of our own defense and intelligence apparatus leading a horde of useful psychopaths, and just like during Operation Gladio, the goal will be to terrify you and those around you into seeking out a more powerful, more centralized government authority to protect your security, to provide cover for the continued planned collapse of American society into third world status, and out of these ashes, the centralization of the political and financial foundations of our world into the hands of an elite few.

By Alessandro Fusillo (Rome)
“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
The terrible facts of Paris still linger in our minds and hearts. Dozens of innocent people murdered without any reason while they were in a restaurant enjoying a dinner with friends, attending a soccer match or a rock concert. It’s violence without sense. No one is secure any more. The terrorists can strike everywhere, anytime and, as the news keep repeating, it’s impossible for any police force to protect all citizens everywhere against such random violence. Newspapers and televisions keep repeating this depressing message. A feeling of impotence and fear is spreading in an atmosphere of gloom and despondency.
I recently visited Arizona and friends invited me to a very fine show in Phoenix. Visiting a theatre or a concert is a heartwarming experience. It’s free market at work. The actors and musicians sell their services and the spectators buy them. Each party gains. It’s a win-win game. Especially if like in the USA no public authority is involved and the show makes its revenue from the tickets and not from some kind of subvention.
The theatre in Phoenix was completely sold out and thousands of persons occupied every available seat. Would an attack like that in Paris have been possible or conceivable in Arizona? I don’t think so. Why? It’s simple, because the people in Arizona are basically armed to their teeth and are allowed to go around with their guns in open display. Imagine the three or four terrorists entering the theatre in Phoenix. For sure upon entering the theatre and opening fire they would have murdered many innocent spectators, but they would have faced an armed response by a huge number of persons. What would have happened? The terrorists would have been rightly and justly killed way before they could even think of wreaking such damage and suffering as they did in Paris. In Paris the “special forces” of the police intervened when the terrorists already had run out of ammunition, the only reason why they couldn’t continue to murder.
An attack in a restaurant or at a sports venue in Arizona would have had the same predictable outcome. The attacked innocent persons would have opposed an armed response.
By the way, my friend in Arizona, a true man of peace, owns several handguns and two assault rifles. Of course he means no harm, but he rightfully claims his right to defend himself from an attack.
In Europe an armed reaction would have been impossible – and indeed it was as Paris’ tragic facts witness – because we have strict laws prohibiting most of the people from owning and carrying around firearms. Hence, we are defenseless. We can’t meet violence and coercion with an equal amount of violence. Self-defense is forbidden by law. In fact in most countries a home-owner who shoots an armed trespasser faces big problems and possibly substantial jail time.
No one among the very intelligent mainstream commentators of the Paris terrorist attacks voiced this simple and evident truth: we have the right to defend ourselves; we should be allowed to carry our arms in order to meet violence with violence! As Roman military writer Vegetius famously said: si vis pacem para bellum; if you want peace, be prepared for war. Unfortunately even if what is going on is a war, as French President said, we can’t be prepared for it, but we have to put all our trust in a police force that turned out to be incapable of defending the citizens.
This is my proposal. Let’s work for a second amendment for Europe. The American Constitution may have a lot of defects and may have not prevented the American government from an abnormal growth that none of the founding fathers could even imagine, but it is nonetheless a beacon of liberty and justice, at least for Europe. Let’s adopt the good things from America, let’s introduce the Second Amendment in every European constitution. Cives arma ferant: let the citizens bear arms.
Instead, what many commentators said was that the correct reaction should be to suspend the civil liberties, to endow the States and the police forces with even more powers and to imitate the American example of the Patriot Act. “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before”, like Rahm said. That’s the spirit. We don’t imitate the good things form America, but the worst.
On the contrary, we should think of ways to take our defense in our own hands. The right to carry arms and to be able to defend ourselves cannot be infringed. It’s a fundamental right as important as the right of free speech or the religious freedom. On a closer look it’s much more important than the latter fundamental rights because a dead person won’t be able to express any thoughts or to profess any religion.
This is especially true, because all police officers and governmental bureaucrats clearly said that they won’t be able to defend us in theatres and restaurants form random violence. If they aren’t then we should be able to try our own defense.
Moreover, did France’s strict firearms laws stop the terrorists from achieving their bloody and inhuman goals? Not at all. If I’m up to evil and wrongdoing I won’t be stopped by a law forbidding the use of firearms. Firearms laws simply enhance the black market and drive up the process of illegal arms. Thus, the laws regarding the prohibition of firearms reveal themselves in their utter stupidity and uselessness. Such laws don’t prevent criminals from killing and wreaking havoc, but they prevent normal citizens form defending themselves.
Sadly few in Europe will think, let alone voice publicly such a thought. We are so used to our armless condition that thinking out of the box will be very difficult or even impossible.
These considerations may be useful for a reflection about violence from a libertarian point of view. Libertarianism or anarcho-capitalism can be summed up in the non-aggression principle. Violence and coercion may not be initiated against other human beings. Thus, homicide, rape, theft and fraud are clearly prohibited by libertarian legal principles because all of these criminal acts entail the initiation of violence against other peaceful human beings.
Yet, libertarianism does not prohibit any kind of violence. Violence aimed at defense from aggressive and coercive acts is admissible. In fact it’s a stronghold of liberty against all persons who wish to encroach and limit our freedom. Hence, violence – defensive violence – is part and parcel of libertarian philosophy. A libertarian who is against the initiation of violence may and will resort to violence and force in order to repeal an attack.
Individual defense is much stronger and effective than the defense organized by the States. Governments really have a very weak interest in defending their citizens as individuals, i.e. to enhance and protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A simple look at the way the police forces act is a sufficient proof. Whereas a President or chief of State has a big bodyguard at his disposal and can be reasonably sure that he won’t be victim of random violence, the common citizens enjoy almost no protection. Of course this happens because it isn’t true that we are equal before the law. Some, like presidents and chiefs of States, are much more equal than the commoners. The latter may be gunned down by terrorist fanatics. At the end of the day, no one really cares.
What the State will not allow is an attack to its officials and to face an armed citizenship that at some point may affirm that it is fed up by the violence and coercion coming from the State and may begin to resist. This is the biggest fear of any government, a much bigger fear than that of a bunch of terrorists. Bearing such truth in mind it’s easy to understand why the mainstream media almost unanimously didn’t even mention the obvious: if the victims had been armed, the effectiveness of the attack would have been much less and probably there wouldn’t have been any attack at all.
Give us our arms and leave us in peace!
The people of Planet earth have clearly been subjected to a sustained sub-conscious perversion of reality for at least the last hundred years, and the effects have been stupendous. However, some people have been immune to this travesty, and I am one of them. It is impossible for me to accept total control over my mental process; it is impossible for me give up my natural right of self-defense, and that has always meant assuming the responsibility to become proficient with the means to do so. I call that – common sense! It is beyond my ability to understand how anyone would give up the right to defend their self; government diktats be damned! For those poor people who accept Government as their Lord and master, I have absolutely no respect for them, and have concluded long ago that their basic humanity has been altered to accept cowardice as a superior philosophy. If a man does not love his wife and children enough to be their protector, he has no business being a husband and father. I understand that some people have accepted passivism as correct human action, and taking a life cannot be justified under any circumstances, but I for one would kill anyone who tried to kill my family or myself without a second thought. I will not accept passivism in my family or make friends with anyone who would stand by and watch their family murdered. Those who would use any method to deny me this God Given Right are advised to bring their own body bag when making the attempt to disarm me. I don’t really know what you people are who support the confiscation of all weapons, but you sure as hell are not American’s!
STAND UP EUROPE, AND GROW A SET!
TELL YOUR GOVERNMENT TO GO PISS UP A ROPE!
Two Things Banned by Totalitarian
Second Amendment foes lying about
By Lee DeCovnick FOR AMERICANTHINKER.COM
The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting.
The Second Amendment has nothing to do with personal self-defense.
Firearms are our constitutionally mandated safeguard against tyranny by a powerful federal government.
Only dictators, tyrants, despots, totalitarians, and those who want to control and ultimately to enslave you support gun control.
No matter what any president, senator, congressman, or hard-left mainstream media whores tell you concerning the statist utopian fantasy of safety and security through further gun control:
They are lying.
If their lips are moving, they are lying about gun control.
These despots truly hate America.
These tyrants hate freedom, liberty, personal responsibility, and private property.
These oligarchs fear that America will wake up one day from the MSM’s digital drug of social engineering aimed at an acceptance of the lie of a utopian fantasy of safety and security through gun registration and confiscation.
But the reality is that our citizens’ ownership of firearms serves as a concrete deterrent against despotism.
They are demanding to hold the absolute power of life and death over you and your family.
Ask the six million Jews, and the other five million murdered martyrs who perished in the Nazi death camps, how being disarmed by a powerful tyranny ended any chances of fighting back. Ask the murdered martyrs of the Warsaw Ghetto about gun control.
Their single agenda is to control you after you are disarmed. When the people who want to control you hold the absolute power of life and death over your family, you have been enslaved.
The hard-left Marxist and Islamists who infect our federal government plus the MSM media whores who protect them will gleefully lie, falsify, fabricate, slander, libel, deceive, delude, bribe, and treasonably betray the free citizens of the United States into becoming an unarmed population.
Unarmed populations have been treated as slaves and chattel since the dawn of history.
Will we stand our ground, maintaining our constitutionally guaranteed Second Amendment rights, fighting those who would enslave us?
Or do we let these and other rights slip away one by one until we are herded into the gas chambers by armed guards, waiting those last twenty seconds for metallic clicks of the Zyklon B canisters pressurizing the fake shower heads?
Totalitarian governments ban bibles and firearms
Donald Trump says tough gun control laws in Paris contributed to tragedy
This Is The Most Disturbing Muslim ‘Refugee’ Video You Will Ever See
More than half of U.S. state governors refuse Syrian refugees, who get staggeringly generous services from taxpayers
Trump calls Obama “insane” to flood U.S. with Syrian refugees
OLDDOG say’s that OBUMA is not insane, because that would make him non-responsible for his actions. That worthless piece of dogshit knows perfectly well what he is doing; OBEYING HIS BANKER MASTERS AT OUR EXPENSE, because he HATES AMERICA with all his mind.

Despite the attacks in Paris, this is what Obama is importing to America. Where is it written that America must admit immigrants from nations identified by the United Nations? Yet, that is where Obama is taking his marching orders from.
Some of the European politicians are getting it.
The Netherlands have a voice for freedom. It is the voice of Geert Wilders who is vehemently speaking out against the Islamization of his Dutch country which has been going for several years. And yet another member of Geert Wilders’ Party for Freedom, Machiel de Graaf, ignored the politically correct mandates for leaders boldly spoke out and said, “We must close all mosques and start deporting Muslims.”
Some of the politicians in America are getting it.
Even former GOP House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told Newsmax TV that Obama has “surrendered” to ISIS. DeLay went on to say that “His (Obama’s) worldview is the wrong worldview for a war president and Congress has to say it. Congress has to stand up.” When Pelosi, Reid, McCain and Feinstein are running any organization, moral change is not on the horizon. However, there political leaders in this country that do have insight, vision and courage. More importantly, they have the best interest of their country at the forefront of their actions.
The Governors vs. the Raving Lunatic In the White House
Even some of America’s governors are getting it.
CNN is reporting that more than half of the nation’s Governors are saying no to Obama’s insane plane to continue to import Syrian refugees into the their respective states in the aftermath of the Paris attacks.
As of Tuesday, 26 governors had issued statements saying they would bar Syrian refugees from settling in their states, citing fears that violent extremists will masquerade as refugees in order to gain entry to the United States. Many governors issued their proclamations over Twitter.
The present list of states that will not accept Syrian refugees currently includes Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin and Wyoming. All of these States are led by Republican governors.
Only fifteen governors, all Democrats (AKA the new American Commmunist Party), and except for Governor Herbert of Utah, have issued their own communist manifestos supporting the resettlement of Syrian refugees.
Michael Savage is correct when he said the “liberalism is a mental disease”.
The Republican Governors are saying that they either oppose taking in any Syrian refugees being relocated as part of a national program or asked that they be particularly scrutinized as potential security threats. Obama will not even agree to screen immigrants with regard to national security concerns. Can you believe it? This $19 trillion dollar national debt causing, lunatic President, won’t spend the money to vet people for terrorism in light of the Paris attacks? This is representative of the low regard that Obama holds the American people in. Obama doesn’t give a **** about your safety, America!
Proclamations with No Teeth
Legally, these proclamations don’t hold water because the states don’t have the authority to prevent refugees from settling within their borders. But they can ask the State Department not to send refugees there.owever, once the refugees have arrived, the governors can withhold state funds to help them learn English, provide housing, provide meals, obtain job training, or provide special intervention in for refugee children attending American schools on the American taxpayers dime.
The governors need to go a step further. The states collect much of the tax that goes to DC. The governors need to begin withhold payment of taxes to the Federal government until Obama is gone from office. Further, the states need to stop supporting all unfunded, Federally mandated programs.
It is time for the American, as a group, to say no to this administration. Elections are increasingly becoming meaningless. However, if the people voted with one voice, it would force the hand of administration. You see, voting machines are not programmed to fudge the results beyond 5%. And if the administration continues down this path of national suicide, then it is time for some real civil disobedience, 1960’s style. And please do not forget to pray. God hates evil and we need to give the Almighty a reason to act.
A Presidential Candidate Chimes In
Heretofore, the only Presidential candidate to speak out on a real set of solutions regarding the Syrian refugee/resettlement program, Donald Trump is pulling no punches. He is unquestionably opposed to relocating Syrians inside of the United States as a consequence of the Paris attacks. NBC is reporting that Trump is advocating for relocating Syrian refugees inside of a safe zone within Syria (see clip here). Donald Trump has also proposed obliterating the oil fields which financially support ISIS. One has to ask, has Obama lost his mind, or is this more proof that the Traitor-In-Chief is indeed playing for the other side.
The Betrayal of the American People
On September 20, 2015, during a joint press appearance in held Berlin on September 20. Both Secretary of State, John Kerry, and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Secretary of State John Kerry revealed that the Obama administration is planning to drastically increase the flow of refugees into the United States. Specifically Syrians were mentioned by Kerry as he stated, “I’m pleased to announce today that the United States will significantly increase our numbers for refugee resettlement in the course of this next year and the year after. Last year I think we were at 70,000”, as he referred to the number of refugees the United States has accepted from around the world. But wait, the Secretary of State went on to say, “We are now going to go up to 85,000 with at least, and I underscore the ‘at least’ — it is not a ceiling, it’s a floor — of 10,000 over the next year from Syria specifically even as we also receive more refugees from other areas. And in the next fiscal year, we’ll target 100,000, and if it’s possible to do more, we’ll do more. In other words and I say it again, America, your leaders have sold out your safety and security.
Doesn’t Kerry and Obama care about this?

As individuals and Nations alike wait in anticipation for COP21 less than a month from now, described as the United Nations’ “legally binding and universal” update to the ever-deleterious Agenda 21, banksters at the supranational level have shown little hesitation in offering their seemingly sage opinions on how their usurious reserves will be put to use in enacting this “Global Sustainable New Deal.”
From veterans of monetary Technocracy like the IMF and World Bank to the “New Kids on the Trading Bloc” represented by the BRICS and AIIB, monetary institutions around the world are poised to receive their slice of the sustainable pie – at the expense of what little freedom and financial security the individual still retains.
Leading the charge on the Western front is none other than the Bank for International Settlements, the “central bank of central banks” as identified by Georgetown Professor Carroll Quigley in his magnum opus Tragedy and Hope. Echoing the credo of “sustainable developers” at the UN and World Bank, the BIS has seen fit to reinforce the meme that the problem of climate change cannot be tackled without complete digital serfdom in the form of an electronic, biometric global I.D.
Euphemistically entitled the “Identification for Development” (or ID4D) program by the World Bank, it represents their “unique” interpretation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals; a reading that’s as draconian as it is creative. The UN, World Bank, and BIS are calling for nothing short of a completely pervasive global surveillance grid to be implemented by no later than 2030, all under the auspices of “saving the planet.”
Without doubt, the most successful project the Banking Cartel has used against America is the slow process of building political correctness in the minds of the people. Such as, it is no longer possible to converse socially about government atrocities, or anything political for that matter. It is now the lowest form of behavior to even mention anything political in a group of people. Power over the people such as this can only be attributed to their stupidity. If this country does not immediately start raising hell with every member of local, State, and Federal governments, and each other, we are going to be eliminated permanently. Everyone must decide NOW if they want to be surviving slaves or dead heroes, because it would be nearly impossible to rebuild a new Republic at this point.

Tell it to the French, Mr. President. Then tell it to the future victims in America. The above comment needs no elaboration.
By Dave Hodges
The terrorist events in Paris have gone from bad to worse! The events connected to the well-coordinated false flag attack are cascading around the globe. Other European governments are increasing their domestic security. France is now bombing ISIS and has declared war on them as well. Obama continues to import the same kind of extremists into America, who attacked the good people of Paris.
An ISIS Kill List for American Service Personnel.
Amarillo, TX. News Channel 10 is reporting that the Pentagon has finally reacted to a globally-released ‘Kill List’ involving American service personnel by requesting that local law enforcement provide extra protection for military personnel whose personal information was released in a public hit list by ISIS in social media.
Interestingly, CBS News national security correspondent, David Martin, reported that the Pentagon is taking the threat very seriously and actually spent this past weekend notifying the soldiers who appeared on the list. One question, what are these threatened soldiers supposed to do? What are their families supposed to do?
In the public threat, ISIS is calling on its psychopathi, Jidhadist sympathizers in the U.S. to kill the identified service personnel. The military personnel on the ISIS threat list are mostly from the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy, which happen to be in the branches of the country’s military that have conducted massive air strikes against ISIS.
ISIS Has Threatened the Following US Cities
Texas: Abilene, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Wyle, Fort Hood, Bedford, Killeen Indiana: Michigan City, Bolivar
Michigan: Dearborn Heights, Lake Orion
Connecticut: Barkhamsted, Manchester
Maryland: Upper Marlboro, Warrensburg, Lexington Park
Louisiana: Shreveport, Bossier City
South Carolina: Daniel Island, Charleston
North Carolina: Fayetteville, New Bern
Virginia: Burke, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Springfield, Norfolk, Chesapeake
Colorado: Colorado Springs
California: Hanford, Solvang, San Ardo, Monterrey, Newberry Park, Carlsbad
New Mexico: Farmington
North Dakota: Minot
South Dakota: Rapid City
Florida: Merritt Island, Palm Coast, Saint John, Middleburg, Saint Augustine
Washington: Colton, Cheney, Seattle, Spokane, Anacortes
Illinois: Orland Park
Rhode Island: Newport
Idaho: Bonners Ferry
THEY MEAN US HARM, YET WE LET THEM CONTINUE TO COME INTO OUR COUNTRY!
Please take note of the following ISIS tweets directed at the West and the United States in particular. In light of what has happened in France, should we not be taking these threats seriously? Aren’t unscreened Muslim immigrants from parts of the of the World who hate America, our present number one national security threat?
In light of recent events, wouldn’t any sane and rational President cease this invasion by immgration activities?
Americans Taxpayers Are Footing the Bill For Our Own Own Overthrow And Invasion! Billions Of Dollars And Lots Of Free Taxpayer Resources Will Go To Syrian Refugees While 94+ Million Americans Remain Out Of Work. The FBI has stated that 10% of the Muslim population have been radicalized. WHEN AMERICANS HEAR THAT 10,000 SYRIANS HAVE BEEN LET INTO THE COUNTRY, WE MIGHT AS WELL SAY THAT WE JUST ADMITTED 1,000 JIHADIST ISIS-BASED MURDERS. KEEP IN MIND THAT THE AUTHORITIES ARE SAYING THE PARIS ATTACKS WERE CARRED BY ONLY 7 TERRORISTS!
Despite the bloodbath in Paris, and the destablization of the rest of Europe, Obama is continuing on the path of “sucide by immigration” policiy which is allowing at least 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country over the next year, according to one of his national security team members appearing on the Sunday morning news shows.
Despite the attacks in Paris, this is what Obama is importing to America. Where is it written that America must admit immigrants from nations identified by the United Nations? Yet, that is where Obama is taking his marching orders from. Why? Please take note of the following:
Why is Obama Selling Out the National Security Interests of America, While the French Have Closed Their Borders and Have Declared War On ISIS?
This is the 64 million dollar question. Any sane President would close the borders to this proven national security threat. Then why isn’t Obama fulfilling his Constitutional duty to protect the citizens of this country from enemies both foreign and domestic? The answer is simple, Obama is a domestic enemy to the people of the United States.
Lois Lerner, the head of the IRS, has engaged in Hillary-like behavior with her emails, was exposed before Congress and still kept her job? What wasn’t exposed before Congress was the following:
Can you imagine how George Washington would have prevailed if he had to deal with this many “Benedict Arnolds’”?
The Muslim Brotherhood Invasion of the White House
If you wonder why the Obama is continuing to bring terrorist threats into our country, please consider who works in his administration.
The Deputy Chief of Staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin
The embarrassed and disgraced wife of deposed Congressman, Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin, has undeniable family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. In an interview with FrontPageMag, anti-Islamist activist and author Walid Shoebat explained that Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin, is and was deeply involved with the Muslim Brotherhood and that Huma’s brother, Hassan, is on the board of the Oxford Centre For Islamic Studies (OCIS) where he is a fellow and partners with other board members including “Al-Qaeda associate, Omar Naseef and the notorious Muslim Brotherhood leader Sheikh Youssef Qaradawi; both have been listed as OCIS Trustees.” Has the FBI stopped vetting Federal governmental employees in highly sensitive positions?
Department of Homeland Security Deputy Mayor, Arif Alikhan
In the publication, Discover the Networks, the editors discuss the background as it relates to highly sensitive federal agency employment (e.g. DHS) and the Muslim terrorist affiliations ofArif Alikhan. Alikhan’s resume is very impressive.
• “Former deputy mayor of Homeland Security and Public Safety for the City of Los Angeles
• Was responsible for derailing the LAPD’s plan to monitor activities within the Los Angeles Muslim community
• Was appointed as assistant secretary for the Office of Policy Development in Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security in 2009
• Became a Professor of Homeland Security and Counterterrorism in 2010.”
• Now serving as a distinguished, visiting professor at the National Defense University.
Alikhan was responsible for derailing the LAPD‘s efforts to monitor radical and potentially terrorist activities within the city’s Muslim community, where numerous radical mosques were known to have provided aid and comfort to the 9/11 hijackers.
Alikhan, an openly devout Sunni Muslim, has openly participated in a Muslim Public Affairs Council fundraiser titled “Be the Change,” in order to support that organization’s leadership-development programs which openly advocates for the Sharia Law takeover of the United States. The open support for this Sharia Law intention to overthrow the U.S. government, on the part of an American citizen, is illegal. When such an advocate is a Federal employee in a sensitive position this person should disqualify one from holding sensitive positions within the government.
Malick Obama is the half brother of the President. Malck is a terrorist and is in charge of finances and arms procurement for the Muslim Brotherhood. During his tenure in office, President Obama has been strangely silent on the terrorist membership of his half brother.
The oversight of the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments is one reason for the Obama administration’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to an Egyptian report citing the vice president of the Supreme Constitutional Court of Egypt, Tehani al-Gebali. We know now from investigative facts supplied by researcher Walid Shoebat, a former Palestinian Liberation Organization operative, in which it was established that Shoebat and al-Gebali was led “to inform the American people that their President’s brother Obama is one of the architects of the major investments of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Shoebat reported in May of 2014 that Malik Obama is the executive secretary of the Islamic Da’wa Organization, or IDO, a group created by the Sudanese government, which is labeled as a terrorist state by the U.S. State Department.
The establishment of President Obama’s half brother as someone who has distinct terrorist ties was established in the Arab Spring back in 2011. The notion went unchallenged but largely unreported in the MSM.
The President Is Tied to His Brother
Obama has given his direct blessing to some of his top supporters (e.g. Marty Nesbitt, a long-time aid and chief consultant to Obama’s re-election campaign) and they launched a foundation that will develop and build a Presidential library. The foundation tied to this endeavor is headed by Malik Obama according to documents uncovered by Freedom Outpost.
What Is There Left to Say?
It is time for some good ole’ civil disobedience. If Obama will not stop importing national security threats to the United States, perhaps it is time to stop paying taxes, or complying with Federal law in a variety of ways. It is time to force an end to this madness. If one thinks that these allegations brought forth here are the words of a raving lunatic, please click on the hypertext links and examine the evidence for your own edification.
As we contemplate potential terror threats inside the United States, please consider the following information sent to me by an informant and an official at Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant. Yesterday, he was in Buckeye, right next to the Palo Verde facility, and he witnessed the following:
Why are Asian soldiers dressed in foreign military uniforms congregating in a town right next to a nuclear power plant?
Of course there are those who say that there are no foreign troops in the US ready to spring into action during a declared martial law action. And there are those who would say that terrorists would never attack a nuclear power plant. By the way, did you know that Grid Ex III is commencing soon? But then again, all of us in the independent media who warned the public against the coming terror attacks in Europe and soon-t0-be terror attacks inside of the United States are just paranoid. Tell that to the French.
What good things can one say about the citizens of America, when they refuse to stand up and make demands on their government? When they sit on their ass and ignore the total destruction of what so many dead and injured soldiers have fought for? When all they care about is their bank balance and spare time to enjoy their selected entertainment? When they surreptitiously support an insane immigration policy? When they are stupid enough to support a terrorist as they’re President? In my opinion American’s are getting exactly what they deserve.

By Anna von Reitz
Please note that this is an IMPORTANT Announcement — one that everyone on Earth should read and understand. Superficially, it addresses the action of Dr. Henderson, Ad Hoc Judge of the World Court, abolishing 501 (c) 3 corporations. More explicitly, it addresses the nature of the Evil we are confronting.
Please, let all be aware, that there is a war going on.
Those involved are of two groups—- men allied with the Creator versus men allied with the Created.
This is one way to explain it— men allied with Life and the Living versus men allied with things other men created—- money and corporations.
It is a battle, quite literally, between the Living and the Dead.
Thus we have the Book of Life and the Book of the Dead….. and people will be hard-tested to prove where they stand.
We have a choice between all that is truly valuable— life, health, family, food, homes, communities—- and the illusion of corporations, money and stocks and bonds and all else that substitutes itself for what is actual.
For thousands of years, Mankind has been living in an illusion, half-asleep, unconscious, manipulated, abused.
It’s time to wake up and hear the birds sing.
This past week an attempt was made to bring a claim of abandonment against our entire nation. The rats attempted to do to our entire country what they have done against us as individuals. They have attempted to claim to the UN that we are not a sovereign nation because their own service corporation doing business as the “United States, Inc.” is bankrupted and no successor to contract has been appointed. They also mounted a claim saying that we are not a sovereign nation because we allegedly have no currency in circulation.
We had to rebut and rebuke them before the UN Security Council. That is how bad it is.
This new action by Dr. Henderson outlaws NGO’s and other forms of “non-profit corporations” and prevents them from being used to launder money and for other nefarious purposes while allowing the operators to claim that they are “non-profit corporations”, a status that has long shielded them from prosecution and accountability.
Organizations like “Planned Parenthood” and “American Bar Association” will either have to abide by the rules of the World Trust— which has very strict accountability requirements—-or function in private association capacity, in which case, they are 100% liable for their actions and enjoy no protection as a public franchise.
This automatically puts a kabosh on there being any advantage to using non-profits for institutionalized money laundering, slave trafficking, drug transport, etc., and allows means to shut down and hold accountable any organization that indulges in this sort of criminality whether it is a hospital, a mosque, a glee club, or a sewing circle.
Some people— especially bankers and politicians—- will claim that this is an attack on the churches and other religious and charitable organizations. I don’t see it that way at all. I see it as a return to true religious freedom and the accountability that goes with it.
One of the most profoundly disturbing aspects of the research and investigations we have conducted is that religious and non-profit corporations have been widely used as “storefronts” for the most vile sorts of criminality imaginable. This is no doubt partially a result of the desire of the perpetrators to hide their activities from public view. They have specifically targeted churches and charities for bases of operation, and then, when caught, have claimed protection of their assets as non-profit corporations.
Those days are at an end.
It would be good to pause a moment and review something that has long been misunderstood by American Churches, Synagogues, Temples, Mosques, etc. These organizations have established themselves as “non-profit corporations” in order to secure what they believed to be tax exempt status. In truth, they were never subject to any kind of tax to begin with. They were always naturally tax exempt as long as they remained private associations of believers.
It was the act of incorporating that made them subject to taxation in the first place and it was then claiming to be a “non-profit” that allowed them to escape taxation—-but bear in mind—-that secondary “exemption” was granted as a privilege by Congress and it could just as easily be removed by Congress.
This circumstance gave the governmental services corporations leverage over the churches and granted administrative capacities to them, all designed to coercively threaten and control these and other religious institutions. If the non-profits didn’t do what the “government” wanted, they were threatened with loss of their tax exempt status and various other punishments.
So much for religious freedom in America.
Churches and other religious institutions and non-profit organizations can now enjoy their natural tax-free status without interference or coercion. At the same time, they will be fully accountable for what they do. If they preach violence and crime and make money selling drugs and under-age porn on the side, they will be shut down. Those responsible will be prosecuted as criminals and their own assets will be forfeit along with the assets of any such institution.
Freedom of religion like all freedoms comes at a price— responsibility for our actions and their impact on the lives of others.
This marks the beginning of an effort by many nations to clean up this mess. Get out your sponges, mops, and buckets, realizing that this is just the beginning of a process of restoration on a worldwide basis. It’s not “just” America that got off-track. Virtually all the nations that were ever part of the British Empire including Britain, Scotland, Ireland, United States of America and India, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, plus the nations of Western Europe, and Japan—have all been impacted by the same evils, and those have then adversely affected the entire Earth.
Our world is a physical body. When one organ is afflicted, the entire body suffers. In this case many “organs”—- many nations— have been infected with the equivalent of a disease. That disease is a very ancient system of predation and enslavement that was first organized in the Kingdom of Ancient Summer, migrated to Babylon and Persia, then to the Levant and North Africa, then following the Punic Wars it traveled from Carthage to Rome and the British Isles.
This disease known as “idolatry” is the by-product of a sea-faring religion that was spread worldwide by the Phoenicians many centuries ago.The Phoenicians were sailors and they worshiped the god of the sea the Greeks called “Poseidon”. We more commonly know this “one-eyed god” as Satan. If you recall statues and representations of Poseidon in Greek temples you will see the familiar horns, scaly tail, cloven feet on land, and trident we now (and still) associate with the Devil. This religion was known as Druidism in the British Isles and Satanism elsewhere, but it is always characterized by the same things: worship in “sacred groves”, infanticide, sex as a sacrament, dualistic “either/or” thinking patterns, the use of two “goads” to drive public opinion and control people (think of the Democratic and Republican political parties), pretending to “be” one’s enemies— called “mirroring” (think of the Federal United States pretending to be the Continental United States), sacrifices of burned flesh (think of 9/11), endless fraud schemes, and lies.
This is literally the “religion” of all pirates and criminals, and it is tied inextricably to the Sea. Thus, we are told that the “Great Serpent” was cast down into the Sea.
We must all be aware that with one exception, Natural Law, all forms of law come from religion. It should not surprise anyone, then, that Mosaic Law and Christian Canon has given rise to the Law of the Land, while Satanism and the infamous “Jewish-but-not Jewish” Talmud, is the basis of the Law of the Sea.
The Talmud is specifically the “law” of the sea-going Tribe of Dan, whose tribal banner has always prominently displayed the serpent emblem. This is the “synagogue of Satan” that Christ referred to, and anyone who has ever read the Talmud will agree that it is one of the most vile, diabolical, profane, evil, and hate-filled documents ever produced by the hand of man. Unfortunately for all of us, it continues to exercise its influence on the Law of the Sea—that is, international law including commercial law— until the current day. It’s grand temple on land is located in the separate international city-state of Westminster, known as the Inner City of London, and is known as the Crown Temple. The Bar Associations and banks are all allied with the Crown Temple and many elite bankers and lawyers secretively worship Satan, Mammon, and Semiramis, aka, the Mother of Harlots and all Abominations, Ashtoreth, Cybele, Isis, —and here in America, the Statue of Liberty. Remember that “liberty” comes from the same root word as “libertine” and is what British sailors receive when they reach a port of call—-it has nothing to do with freedom.
This infamous religion has been suppressed for many generations, but has continued on in the practices and beliefs of many so-called Secret Societies, especially in certain sects of the Freemasons and the Roman Cult within the Catholic Church. Just as the Tribe of Dan represents only one-thirteenth of the Tribes, less than ten percent of the membership of the Freemasons and Roman Catholic Church have been initiated into the profane practices of these ancient pagan belief systems— so don’t get out the pitchforks and start poking people who merely belong to a Masonic Lodge or a Catholic Church. It’s also worth noting that other churches and fraternal organizations have also been involved. I am only citing two of the main sources of mental, spiritual, and emotional miasma.
The vicious and perverted nature of this peculiar religion has made it powerful but not popular, and its practitioners have long presented it as knowledge possessed only by the “elites” and have forbidden their members to speak of it on pain of death. However, we may speak of it, because we were never initiated into their Death Cult, never took a Bar Oath, have no obligation to them, and have our knowledge of it from completely different sources. Please note that both George Washington and Benjamin Franklin were Freemasons. So were many high-ranking SS officers.
All this is necessary prelude to understanding what is going on in the world and why Americans must be on their toes, watchful, and determined to leave Babylon behind. This basic knowledge about religion and law is also the foundation needed to understand that the entire concept of money is based on the idolatry practiced by this ancient, foreign, and profane religion. Money, whether stamped gold coins or printed paper credit chits— is an idol, literally a graven image, and those who chase after it are worshipers of Mammon — the god of money and all such vain illusions.
This is why it is written that you cannot serve both the True God and Mammon. You can’t honor Truth and Falsehood in the same breath. And money by definition is a falsehood— a fraud— because it presents itself as a substitute for other things that it is not: labor and commodities.
The object of money used as a substitute “representing” labor and commodities is to cheat and chisel a portion of both from the process of trading goods and services. The purveyors of “money” are manufacturers of idols, no less than Ishmael, the Idol Maker of Tabriz. Nations under the Cain-anite spell then “value” their money and compete in terms of which idol is greater, more powerful, more popular—-and therefore, perceived to be more valuable. This results in the daily betting game known as “international exchange rates”. Note the words “perceived” and “value” —- no form of money has any very great actual value attached to it, not even gold. You can be sure that if any form of money had actual value equal to its perceived value, it would quickly disappear, because those manufacturing such “money” could not possibly make a profit otherwise.
It may be disturbing for men of many faiths to realize, but we have been worshiping graven images—idols—all along, no different than it was in ancient Babylon.
The further object of the religion of Babylon was to enslave men for the enrichment of the so-called “elites”. This is what Abraham was fleeing when he left Ur. This is what Moses was leaving behind when he led his people out of Egypt. This is what Jesus was objecting to when he drove out the Moneychangers.
By fraud and deceit, the practitioners of these ancient and profane religious cults have endeavored to take over the whole world and establish a “Kingdom of the Dead” in the midst of the living. They have very nearly accomplished their ends by obtaining misrepresented commercial contracts and licenses and pretending that their victims have knowingly and willingly agreed to give up their status as living men and women and to function as dead “things”—- as corporations, estate trusts, cooperatives, foundations, even transmitting utilities, all defined as “franchises” belonging to parent trusts and corporations owned and operated by the perpetrators of these fiduciary trust fraud schemes.
The essence of the coercive identity theft that takes place while we are still babes in our cradles has been explained elsewhere. I note only that the perpetrators have gone so far as to try to pull the same fraud against the whole Continental United States and to seize our assets as “abandoned property”. This necessitated raising an objection and filing both a renewed Declaration of Joint Sovereignty and Sovereign Letters Patent. Original copies of the attached documents were filed as of Friday, November 6. Additional copies are being forwarded to additional recipients.
Please keep copies of the attached documents in safe places throughout America and post this information as widely as possible, being especially sure to inform your religious leaders. This is your proof that a claim was entered in your behalf asserting that We, the People, are alive and well, that we object to any presumption of civil death, bankruptcy, or other false claim, that we have repudiated the odious debts fabricated and charged against us and every other American, and that we have duly informed the UN Trust Committee– North America, the UN Security Council, and the Principal Contracting Powers involved.
Here are the actual documents:
Armed with only a rabid dog’s determination, I have for the last ten years been trying to understand how everything I had been taught as a CHILD was nothing but lies upon lies, and lives lost beyond comprehension in pursuit of real freedom. After all, had we not been assured from infancy we were the light of the world? Now, at 75 and at or near the end of my physical abilities to protect my loved ones and fellow Americans, I find that we are all slaves indebted to the most horrible creatures ever born. Not being willing to accept this status of slave and still suffering from the affects of being brainwashed from childhood with patriotism and many other false doctrines I discover two people who have the intelligence to lay out the entire plan the scumbags used to enslave me, my family and all fellow Americans. This presents the problem of how to organize a plan of action in a time when the enemy is listening to my every brain-fart and the young and strong men have their head up their ass. If anyone can come up with a plan of action without getting killed or incarcerated incognito let me know, as I am ready to stand up as a shield to protect Anna and James. It’s a bitch to be old and feeble when my neighbors need men so enraged they are ready to rip the heads off of the bastards enslaving us.
WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA!

By Walter Burien
Here is a VERY important point for you and everyone else in your community per any tax increase proposed by your local government(s). The new accounting changes for all government operations over the last few years is designed to make the operation “look” cash poor by requiring them to have funding for their “liabilities” up to 35-years out. (parking zone for the cash)
Now that might up front look like a prudent thing to do BUT, what they do is project their liabilities out 35-years cross-matched with their income of 1-year out. ** If you, I, or Bill Gates did the same thing we all would look like we are on death’s financial door.
They are moving on a tax increase not because they are short on cash today, they are doing it because they are pulling income and standing balances off their operating funds into “advanced liability accounts” creating the shortfall on their operating budget to justify the increase.
What is “ESSENTIAL” for you and all others in any local government venue to do is: Based on their “gross income, not net” last year (and go five years back) and then project their income based on projecting out 35-years to cross match with what they say their liabilities are…!
If that was done I have a feeling that viewing projected income 35-years out without ANY tax increase, they would be in the black by a BIG margin and NOT short of funds.
All local governments across the land are saying they are short of funds today because they are doing the same thing of projecting out liabilities 35-years cross-matched with projections of income out 1-year. So the same applies for every City, County, School District, University, Enterprise Operation across the land…
Detroit in declaring bankruptcy did the same thing right under the local public’s and nations view by promoting the liabilities out (one side of the coin) 35-years and not the income (the other side of the coin) for the same and got away with it. Detroit was sitting on 18-billion in liquid investment assets at the time when they did this. But they said their liabilities were 27-billion (projected out 35-years) claiming to be 9-billion short today…
Please share this communication with other activists in your state and ask them to do the same.. Want to light a big fire under the corruption? Then make sure everyone Statewide sees this detailed outline communication As Soon As Possible. (A.S.A.P)
Here is another tip for you per population control that I learned the hard way over an over again.
Government on all levels will go far out of their way to monitor every one. They specifically want to keep a handle on their opposition. Let’s call government on all levels the Fox.
For the Fox to control all opposition, the Fox will covertly start operations (the names I made up) such as: “Taxpayers for Fair Government”, “The News Site that publishes everything government does not want you to know”, “National Militia for the Abolishment of Government”, “Destroy government corruption, and restore people’s rights”, “Legal Fund for the indictment of corrupt judges”, “Town of X Breakfast Club to Restore Taxpayer/Property owner/Citizens Rights”
The Fox now can watch and draw in most of their opposition to identify them, here their strategy is to; see what is coming out that may be a threat to the Fox, this all being done so the Fox can stay 5-steps ahead of their opposition for corrective action to be taken by the Fox. Additionally, it allows the Fox to school all in a direction or with so called damning information or actions that in reality are fictional having no impact on the Fox what-so-ever but expels the energy and resources of the individual participants.
Tens of millions of people are sucked into these types of intentionally laid out Fox Flypaper operations. Additionally, if there is a truly independent group to the Fox that grows into several hundred thousand + members that “actually are a threat to the Fox, the Fox will go out of its way to take the group over from the inside or if the Fox can, cause financial duress on the group and buy it out for take-over. This is done especially with independent publications or news media groups.
You would be amazed to find out how few “genuine” independent groups there are left out there. Anything involved or tied in with the syndicated media, forget about it.
EXAMPLE: For 15-years tens of thousands of people tried to get their local syndicated media outlet or national outlet to simply mention the CAFR to their listeners or viewers. No one was successful per the mass viewed syndicated TV News outlets excluding myself back in 1995. The anchor from ABC News out of Phoenix. On the 10 PM nightly News she showed a full camera shot of the AZ 1994 State CAFR and made comment. ( I told her in advance she could not mention it to her producer or he would cut mention ) Well, the 10 PM News usually airs verbatim at 7 AM the following morning. The following morning her segment mention of the CAFR was cut out and she was pulled from that day forward as being the Anchor.
Since 1998, only the independent news outlets did front page feature stories on the CAFR. The ones with the biggest circulation to the public were then targeted by the Fox and were shut down, bought out, or even worse for the smaller ones, the editor / owner died unexpectedly.
The population is masterfully “entertained” off into La-La land by the Fox within an annual repetitious “loop” created that gives the imprecision of advancement, but in “reality” maintains the population in a very controllable and in an exact spoon-fed programmed mindset as the Fox takes over everything.
I put up an article about California’s largest “Taxpayer Association” the Howard Jarvis Group. It can be viewed it by clicking the link towards the top of my home page having the subject line of: “To any remaining California members of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer Association” it is a falsely “Destroy the Messenger” example to avoid the issue: http://CAFR1.com/HJTA.html
You may also want to read my BIO in which I mention some of those “independent” news groups and what happened to them when they featured CAFR disclosure. http://CAFR1.com/BIO.html
The Fox is now controlling and operating within a 10-trillion dollar + a year collective take-over machine that has amassed somewhere between 140 to 170 trillion dollars of liquid investment assets held both domestic and internationally. At the same time 95% to 98% of the populace is being maintained clueless by the Fox and its cooperatives about this reality DUE TO THE MONEY / CONTROL INVOLVED.
** You may want to take a look at the example CAFR listing I put up a few months ago. 4500 CAFRs categorized. (long page). Then you yourself can bypass the void intentionally created by the Fox and share that page with many. http://CAFR1.com/listings/Listings.html
That should give many a big wake-up call as to the scope and size of it all. Also it will qualify the aspect of not a peep or mention by the Fox or its cooperatives for 70-years of their Holy Grail of over-all accounting, the CAFR.
Please share / publish this communication with all that you know.
I continue to work diligently on bringing forth the TRFA (Tax Retirement Fund Association)
An organization that will and can transition every local government to operate on the “Fiduciary Trust” principle to meet its operating budgets “without” taxation of any kind. One income source for the Fox, taxation is replaced with another source of income, Fiduciary Trust return. It is there to happen and I am working on it! A treat for everyone else!
Also, with this being done, the Fox and our economy “in all reality” does better too..
“Please, please, please understand and share the following:
If you were married to a Super Model who was gorgeous, and everyone kept telling you she (or he) was fat and ugly, after a while would you doubt yourself to think that she (or he) is fat and ugly?
Per that debt constantly promoted to us all, the following three points apply:
Enron promoted their profit and hid their debt. Government does the exact opposite: they promote debt and hide profit.
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.
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 of their account 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 spouse is fat and ugly, when in fact she or he 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.
GASB.org (Government Accounting Standards Board) determines accounting changes for the CAFR and AFR accounting for government. FASB.org has a hand in it also.
When they make a change in accounting standards they do it by sending out a “Transmittal Letter” to all under the title of “Statement No. XX”
When I broke the ice in 1998 nationally and many started to look, they issued Statement No. 32 starting the changes in the CAFR accounting. I think they are up to Statement 170 now. Go to GASB and ask where to view online or where to get a copy of the Statements starting with 32 up to the current last statement put out by them.
The key points from 1998 forward were:
1. They changed from a showing of gross to a showing of net.
2. Then they shifted in that the local governments had to account for all future liabilities and do so “at the present” over actuarial projections to meet liabilities over time. That was the big mod that brings forward the comments in my article.
3. One small change they did back in the early 2000’s was to change in the statistical section the showing of “Top 10 Employers” in the state. Well, when I brought to the public’s attention that in most state CAFRs the Top 10 employers was government itself (AZ was 8 out of the 10) they changed to: The Top 10 “private” Employers in the state. That allowed for the exclusion of government. The impact that required the change was when the public caught government was the top majority employer in the state, the up front reaction was: “What, are we Russia?
Get those Statements and see the progression of changes to see how they pulled it off on the things they are doing today. I not that they always say: We are just following GAP standards. (Generally Accepted Accounting Procedures). What they forget to mention is those GAP standards they created themselves through the private associations they created to network with each other as a whole. Also that GAP they refer to is for exclusively Government. Private sector accounting is for the private sector and government accounting is for government.. If a Fortune 500 company were to use Government GAP accounting, they would be indicted by the SEC (attempting to hide assets via non-disclosure to its shareholders through the “projected” liability scam)
Here is a radio show I was the guest on in Tennessee the 3rd week of October 2015. It was just put up on YouTube.
Hot News Talk Radio 1240 AM is the Chattanooga, Tennessee hottest talk station covering all the news and hot topics of the day.
I was fighting off a throat and lung infection so I am coughing especially in the first 1/2 hour. I’m sure many listeners were wondering if I was on my last leg.
But, I did cover a pretty good disclosure and covered a lot of important detail. A good detailed listen to the end of the show.
Please share with those that need an education on the big picture CAFR topic.

There is growing dissent inside the Pentagon associated with the divided political loyalties of various factions.
Slowly but surely more and more Pentagon officials and their subordinates are beginning to wake up and understand that they have been seduced to fight foreign wars of aggression for the World’s largest Organized Crime Syndicate.
And that they have done this for the large Wall Street Banks, their associated “no bid” defense contractors, and for the state of Israel.
And they are beginning to understand that all this has been a big trick pulled on them by Traitors within their ranks who used Gladio-style, inside-job, engineered synthetic terror on 9-11-01 to attack America and then wrongly blamed it on innocent foreign Mideast nations. And they did all this in order to deceive America to fight illegal, un-Constitutional, unprovoked, unjust wars.
Not only do these foreign wars of aggression violate the Geneva Conventions but constitute crimes against humanity under International Law besides being completely illegal and un-Constitutional.
Many folk inside the Pentagon are now just beginning to understand that the American Military has served as the policemen, enforcers and cannon-fodder for these Banks and their associated defense contractors.
And that this has all been done to generate obscene profits and gain cheap access to other nation’s natural resources with absolutely no concern for the lives or welfare of heroic American Soldiers or their families. And much of the medical care provided by the VA is insufficient and in too many cases disgraceful with lost and missing records.
Some insiders have even suggested that the Top Policy-Makers that really have been running the American Military want lots of dead and wounded American Soldiers coming home with ongoing disabilities and a high suicide count.
And that various high tech eugenics have been used to provide this intended result including contaminated, debased vaccines, exposure to depleted uranium, known to be able to cause reproductive/genetic damage and earlier death from higher rates of cancer.
It is becoming more and more clear that there is a high level plot to kill, wound and disable America’s best youth and weaken their military by busing them as cannon fodder to fight wars for israel and the Banksters. It can actually be shown quite conclusively that all wars are banker’s wars in the final analysis.
This disgusting realization that General Smedley Butler was correct when he claimed that all war is a racket for Wall Street shocks the conscience into life for many able to gain such an understanding and have not lost their souls.
Naturally most Pentagon Officials, Officers of high rank and civilian employees enjoy the high positions and status they have attained. This motivates them to stay true believers of the party lines and ideologies their superiors expect.
And we know for sure that the majority of Pentagon Officers would stop serving the *Khazarian Mafia who hijacked the Pentagon if they actually understood that this is what happened, that is that the pentagon was infiltrated and hijacked by highly connected individuals who had divided loyalties and were serving another nation more than America.
What has been lacking has been access to the truth of who really runs the Pentagon and how they infiltrated it and hijacked and under what power they were able to do so.
All these facts are now coming out for the first time after being forbidden and suppressed for many years thanks to a new faction of America-firsters which has emerged within the Pentagon and American Intel.
These America-firsters have worked very hard for a number if years to get the real truth out about this infiltration and hijacking of the pentagon and the USG’s hijacking too which has been done by the same groups of Traitors who serve the World’s biggest Organized crime Syndicate.
Finally their work is attaining serious results. The American masses as well as many Pentagon Officials are now learning how our nation’s highest echelons were infiltrated and hijacked by the Khazarian Mafia and its subordinates the Bush Crime Cabal (aka the BCC) and the Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizen Traitors (aka the Zios).
As this hidden truth is now becoming known and obvious to all, it can no longer be denied that High Treason has been committed in the Pentagon’s High Command Structure surround 9-11-01 and all the subsequent wars it triggered. Nor can it be denied that thousands of the best American Soldiers have been needlessly sacrificed, killed, horribly wounded and disabled for nothing but the evil profits of the Banksters and their war contractors.
As you can imagine as this truth sweeps through the Pentagon and the US Military, dissidence and rage grows by the day. And this realization is now spreading throughout the Pentagon at breakneck speed.
The truth that the Pentagon High Command and the US Administration were deeply involved in the attack on America and managed the stand-down on 9-11-01 is so clear cut, so definite, and so compelling that it can no longer be denied by anyone that takes the time to carefully consider that basic evidence.
The Pentagon High Command has worked very hard with the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM), the Administration and Congress to contain these terrible deep dark secrets and prevent the American masses and American Military from finding them out. To learn of the specifics of either of these secrets is usually a mind-boggling shock to the system for anyone that finds out, especially the second secret.
The first dark secret is that the Pentagon High Command has been infiltrated and hijacked by the World’s largest Opium Cartel and manipulated into helping the CIA and the Mossad, using the DEA and US Customs as cover to become the World’s largest illegal drug traffickers.
The second deep dark secret even more terrible for America if you can imagine that is that the Pentagon High Command assisted the Mossad and the Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens and the US Administration in their attack on America on 9-11-01.
Israel did 9 11 – All the Proof in the World
On this terrible day, about 3,000 innocent civilians were mass-murdered, with about 39,000 later dying of the radiation fallout and asbestos poisoning and strange cancers. Right now about 70,000 are fighting for their very lives from this after-pollution and fallout of this Gladio-style, False-flag, Inside-job attack on NYC.
This kind of corruption in the Pentagon is nothing new, it got quite dirtied up in the Vietnam war with drug trafficking, search and destroy missions, and other mass-assassinations under Operation Phoenix.
We now know for certain based on declassified documents that the Naval Intel and the US Administration had already cracked the purple code and and had numerous spotters who knew that the Japanese were going to attack Pearl Harbor.
There were even newspaper articles saying such before hand suggesting an attack was imminent. What did the US navy do? They pulled the carriers out of port and left the old ships as targets. And Naval Intel went to the mountains in Hawaii with their families for an early annual picnic.
The Pentagon has protected the opium crop in Afghanistan for the Khazarian Mafia and the USAF has flown them out using remote controlled Global hawks. That is one of the main reasons the US Military was used to invade Afghanistan, but there are more.
Marines grow opium for their masters.
Of course we know that the Taliban did not allow any opium growing and executed any farmer doing such. Geraldo Rivera pulled a fast one by slipping this story through the Controlled Major Mass Media’s censorship filters. Good work Geraldo.
Another reason is to provide cheap access to the Lithium needed for high tech batteries. Another reason was to help protect the Mideastern oil suppliers and the US Petro Dollar. Another was to aid the Khazarian Mafia in their plan to use NATO and the US Military to encircle and weaken the Russian Republic.
When Obama approved the P5+1 Agreement to let Iran develop nuclear power and the USG failed to attack Syria and Iran with a major air and ground war as the Israeli Likudists had demanded, Bibi Netanyahu was furious. He resorted to his back up plan which was to manipulate his allies in the Pentagon’s High Military Command to leave massive stockpiles behind.
This would be done to help Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey train ISIS, ISIL, Daesh and Al Nusra to form the New Islamic State that could be targeted as the World’s largest extremist Islamic Terror State that would have to be later destroyed by the American Military and NATO.
And we know that these forces have turned out to be little more than a band of savage, soulless mercenaries who were deployed to create torture, rape, sex trafficking, mass death and chaos which could then be turned against Syria first to destroy it and then turned against Iran to destroy it too.
In the process it was planned that Saudi Arabia would be conned into attacking Yemen which would then be turned around and use later to destroy both Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
After accomplishing the destruction of Syria and Iran and their Balkanization, the US Military and NATO would be forced into waging a major air and ground war against these mercenaries or face destruction of Europe and supposedly frequent major Islamic extremist terror attacks inside the Continental USA.
The plan was to displace millions from their Syrian homes and give them travel money to migrate to Europe, with lots of mercenaries sheep-dipped into these refugees which could be used to later generate mass chaos and make Europeans hate Islamics in general. This mass migration is already well underway. If press reports are accurate and they seem to be, George Soros admitting giving these refugees travel money.
How interesting it is that none of these mercenary “synthetic terrorist groups” never seem interested in attacking Israel which gives one an idea who is the main element behind this. And besides the fact that so many of the wounded Mercenary “synthetic terrorists” have been treated in Israeli hospitals should be a big tip off.
The Bush Crime Cabal is deeply embedded into the USG, the Judiciary, Congress, the CIA and the Pentagon at every level.
Bush1 had fifty years to infiltrate his gang into the CIA, the Pentagon, the Judiciary and Congress and even pick most Presidents. Even though the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) was caught and exposed publicly using drugs, pedophilia and honey-traps to entrap and control officials and corporate leaders, the general public largely ignored this, far too wrapped up in their own lives and basic survival to just get-by.
The CIA’s Franklin Credit Union/Barney Frank/Craig Spence/White House Page Boy scandal deployed by the BCC was certainly a new low point for the USG. American Law Enforcement had already been so compromised by the BCC and its CIA that it suppressed any investigations and hundreds of pedophile crimes and murders of children and numerous related Satanic Cult crimes went unpunished.
And we now know for certain that every major police department has had an American Intel contact, usually CIA (sometimes other US Intel), with top secret credentials, often a NOC, that runs cover ups. The embedded Intel ops typically run cover-ups for any activities associated with the CIA, including setting up “stand-down” Arkensides (murders made to appear as suicides) to get rid of whistle-blowers and dissidents.
These embedded Intel Agents run cover-ups for the CIA/DEA/Mossad “controlled deliveries” of narcotics for black ops money which are supposed to catch the “Mr. Big drug traffickers” but never do. And they suppress any serious investigations or recognition of the numerous and serious crimes and violence of the Satanic Cult Network known as the “Process”. Obviously these men are Traitors and are functioning as a part of a major RICO crime syndicate.
It is time they are exposed and brought to justice. Anyone committing these crimes using National Security as False cover obviously has lost their soul and humanness if they ever had one in the first place.
The invocation of so-called “National Security” to cover murder, drug trafficking, pedophilia, human compromise is in this case a separate RICO crime in an of itself, besides all the other major felonies involved.
We now know from those that have been close to the World’s largest Satanic Cult called “the Process” that it started out as an MI-6 type operation based on the teaching of John Dee, Aleister Crowley and Alice Bailey. This massive World’s largest cult is based on ancient Baal Worship, child and human sacrifice and deployment of wars and mass death eugenics.
Symbol of Baal, the God of the Process Church and another name for Lucifer or Satan as worshipped in the Process Church. This is the hidden God of High Freemasonry which is kept secret from most Freemasons.
Sadly this Satanic cult “the Process” has been deputized as an agent of US National Security and given complete immunity and protection for all its activities including human sex trafficking, organ trafficking, pedophilia, drug trafficking and various other criminal cult activities. We know now for certain that this satanic cult forms the central and main belief system of the Khazarian Mafia’s Top Policy-Makers. We also know for certain that this Process cult is a modern derivative of ancient Baal Worship and provides twisted motivations and rationalizations for the incredible evil that the Khazarian Mafia does all over the World.
Also deputized as agents of US National Security have been the major International Oil Corporations, at least one Tobacco Company, at least one big pharma manufacture of vaccines. Even foreign Intel agencies like the Mossad and Saudi Intel are so deputized and provided absolute cover by American Law Enforcement, American Intel and the Controlled major Mass Media (CMMM).
Many Internet Social Media corporations have been deputized as agents of national security and promised financial success as long as they play ball and follow directives. One search engine associated service is pure Fourth Reich DVD like the BCC and is now run out of Germany, can you imagine that.
A growing number of Intel insiders believe that Merkel is Hitler’s daughter by Eva Braun’s sister and is now functioning as a hard core Globalist, self-destructing Germany once again like her father seemed to have done. Wouldn’t that be major news if these rumors turn out to be true? That would mean she has Rothschild blood and is just another illustration of how the ruling “Bloodline” families continue their matrix of power. If one compares their photos the similarities seem remarkable.
Merkel is allowing so many Mideast refugees in the Germans are beginning to revolt. She has allowed an embargo against Russia which has shut off German farmers selling produce and German auto makers from selling car and truck parts to the Russian Republic, major sources of German revenue.
We now know for certain that Hitler was a British agent, fully mind-kontrolled at Tavistock Institute in England and that explains why Generals Kammler, Gehlen and Mueller and his top Intel abandoned him and made a secret treaty with American Intel and British in 1943. Merkel is apparently conflicted, torn between her NWO Globalist commitments to the Khazarian mafia and yet angry about being manipulated by the USG into cutting off much needed sales to the Russian Republic.
In order to understand the power of CMMM based and psychotronic mind-kontrol on the leaders of most nations, consider what Merkel has done regarding Mideast refugees. Also consider the fact that Swedish leaders are now telling their citizens that any resistance to all the Mideast refugees is pure racism and their Islamic culture is superior. Can you imagine that. One of the ways you can always tell if a leader is mind-kontrolled is if he or she acts in ways completely upside down, calling black white, and evil good.
The Vietnam war provided cover for massive drug trafficking by the Khazarian Mafia through the Pentagon and the CIA for “off the books” black ops money.
Once this World Largest Opium Cartel which goes all the way back to the Opium Wars got a foothold inside the Pentagon it just kept expanding it influence and power until it has almost completely hijacked the Pentagon and was able to embezzle several trillion dollars with no accounting trails left. Donald Rumsfeld announced that this money was missing the day before the 9-11-01 attack which destroyed most of the accounting records and mass-murdered 25 of the 40 Able Danger investigators.
During the Vietnam war which was just another engineered, staged war for Bankster and defense contractor profits, significant dissidence and rebellion in the ranks rapidly emerged. GIs began to catch on to this big lie of the “Domino Theory” and came to understand that they were they to make profits for the banks and Defense Contractors and not to win a war which had not even been properly declared.
More pentagon officials and subordinates are beginning to figure out they are there to be manipulated to serve the World’s largest Organized Crime and opium Cartel and to serve as cannon fodder as necessary. They are also figuring out when deployed in the Mideast wars they were poorly supplied and there was no serious effort to really win the war in the Top Echelons of the Pentagon and the Administration. It is easy to understand why great dissonance is now growing inside the Pentagon and the US Military in general.
Many thought the extreme Vietnam War Protests and rebellion within the Military in Vietnam would forever stop US Military Aggression, but that has not turned out to be the case.
And the protests at home from the College students that began to understand the true dynamics of the Military Industrial complex as mainly a profit operation for the banks and defense contractors, street protests increased and began to get major press. And of course the public’s knowledge about Daniel Ellsberg’s Pentagon papers did not help either but confirmed all the doubts about the real value of the war to the average American.
As the this dissatisfaction about the war peaked for the American Soldiers deployed there on the front lines, officers and staff at the rear enjoyed great lives of pleasure, good food and plenty of willing girlfriends. But at the highest command level in the rear areas Drugs were knowingly trafficked into America in the body cavities of dead American Soldiers Killed in Action. And when good honest Soldiers found this out and went to their commanders the commanders played along but then arranged for a deadly and strange jeep accident.
This was not an isolated event but regularity toward the end of the war. These commanders had been compromised the World’s largest Opium Cartel that infiltrated and hijacked the Pentagon and the CIA. There are hundreds of great men and women soldiers and civilians that have been murdered to keep this secret covered up forever. (eg Gary Webb, ect.).
A new strategy within the Pentagon High Command was developed to neutralize dissidence within the military itself and in the American public.
All the dissonance and outright rebellion over the Vietnam war created such a concern in the Pentagon high command and the various Congressional committees responsible that a new strategy for wars of aggression was developed.
It was decided that the draft would be discontinued and the American Military would be converted to a pure mercenary force based on Madison Avenue advertising and image management to draw recruits. National Guard would be sent into active combat instead of being the weekend warriors they were hired as, and were enslaved and stop-lossed as often as necessary to keep troop counts up in the Mideast Theater of War.
A new war-making strategy based on engineered and deployed “synthetic terror” and “pre-emptive war” was developed by those Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizen Traitors that infiltrated and ended up being able to completely hijack the pentagon.
Soon the Top Policy-makers formed an alliance with the Fourth Reich (aka the DVD, the folks who ran the Gladio “left-behind army” terror operations). These Top Policy-makers have come to be known as the PNACers and the Top NeoCons. these were the folks that had infiltrated and hijacked the Pentagon on behalf of the Khazarian Mafia (World’s largest Opium Cartel and the folks that run almost all the private central banks around the World).
These Top Policy-makers who controlled the Pentagon were a mixture of Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizen Traitors (the Zios) and members of the Bush Crime Cabal (the BCCs which many refer to as the Fourth Reich). Many were of course members of the CFR, a tool of the Khazarian Mafia City of London Banksters, part of their “roundtable system” of advisory councils and non-profit think tanks and foundations. Of course not all members of the CFR understand who set it up or runs it and for what purposes either.
It was a strange partnership between the Zios and the BCCers but can be more easily understood if one realizes that both groups actually worked for and were empowered by the same chieftains who ran the Khazarian Mafia (aka the Banksters who run almost all private central money creation and also the Opium Cartel).
And as most VT readers now realize these City of London Khazarian Mafia Banksters and were empowered by their ability to create all the money they needed out of thin air and lend it for use to the masses at interest, and have had so much money that they have been able to buy or bribe almost every single government officials in most nations, especially in America.
The decision was made by the top several Policy-Makers who really control the Pentagon and the USG that the only way to continue illegal, unConstitutional, undeclared, perpetual wars was to create a new imaginary enemy that could be redefined at any time.
This enemy (“The Terrorists”) must be able to modified and expanded or refocused at any time to include any nation that they needed to destroy and gain access to their natural resources cheaply. Thus the ideas of the DVD (Fourth Reich or Abwehr) to deploy Gladio-style, False-flag, inside-job engineered synthetic terror were accepted.
But even worse the Khazarian Mafia decided that the definition of what a terrorist is would be expanded to include any American citizen who asked too many questions, was a whistle-blower of any kind, or did not immediately comply with any government or police order.
They proceeded to consolidate all American Law Enforcement into a Khazarian Mafia Secret Police, Homeland Security (DHS) using Pentagon weapons and technology and Israeli anti-terrorist training given for free by the ADL to almost every large Police Department.
Their plan was to merge the American Police, the NSA and the Pentagon with those who were in control of Homeland Security, the Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens which they had direct control over. In this way they could create a master control grid and quickly identify any dissident ant any level, and then label them domestic terrorists to be harassed, psychotronically “corrected”, gang stalked or arrested and imprisoned.
The PNACers then proceeded to create an all encompassing plan to not only build a greater Israel for the Khazarian Mafia Banksters, but to use the Pentagon to propel the American Khazarian Mafia Proxy state to be the world’s supreme power that could never again be challenged in any way by any other nation. The whole World could then be destroyed nation by nation as a Khazarian Mafia NWO Globalist one-world government could be assembled from the ruins, like the Phoenix Bird of Greek Mythology.
To do this they realized they had to create a catalyzing event, a new Pearl Harbor with at least 2500 dead Americans in order to blood shock the American masses, to elicit their extreme anger and a rage with a need for complete revenge. They new that this anger if properly elicited in the masses and the US Military would be sufficient to motivate America to attack the sovereign nation-states that the USG and CMMM had claimed attacked America on 9-11-01. The Folks running this attack on America realized that they had to make sure that the Big Lies, false-narratives and propaganda of the CMMM continued and were sufficient to keep the masses and the military motivated to conduct these illegal, unConstitutional, unprovoked Mideast wars of aggression for Israel and the Khazarian Mafia.
They knew that engineering their attack on America on 9-11-01 and defining it as a terrorist attack by an arrogant foreign Arab state that supposedly hated American Freedom and the American way of life would enrage the American masses and the American military and motivate them to be willing to make total war against that Arab perp which they wrongly blamed.
Of course this whole foreign war to gain obscene profits and to gain land and resources of other nations was dependent on having complete control over the Major Mass Media which they did. Only recently has a significant portion of mainstream America began to understand that the Major Mass Media is filled with lies and deception. One recent study showed that most Americans now view cockroaches more favorably than members of Congress.
Millions are abandoning TV Network News and going to the Alternative news sites on the Worldwide Web. And the Khazarian Mafia has responded by setting up hundreds of sock-puppet/stooge website that use “limited hangout” to lure readers.
Limited hangout is the use of partial truths to gain credibility in order to later deliver a bad payload. But the average alternative media user is becoming far too sophisticated for this and grabs the truth nuggets and ignores the bad payload while connecting these truth nuggets in their head ti form fairly accurate perceptions of what is actually going on.
As Hillary Clinton remarked in a private speech, “We are losing the information war.” Truth is very powerful and once it gets out is resonates with the masses and then takes on a life of its own that cannot be stopped.
Different Factions in the Pentagon:
There are different factions in the Pentagon and dissonance is growing by the day.
There are the Bushies (the BCC folks). These are the holdovers from Bush1’s 50 year penetration into the USG at the highest levels. He was able to appoint his own at every elev and corrupt the courts and much of the Pentagon and take over the CIA.
Then you have the Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizen Traitors (the Zios). Both of these factions knowingly or unknowingly serve the City of London Khazarian Mafia Banksters.
And then you have a growing faction of American-firsters, some who have been independent and some who have psychologically abandoned the BCC since they see it waning in power. Many of these folks were previously conned, manipulated and mind-kontrolled by their overseers to believe that it was America’s job to fight the terrorists in the Mideast before they came to America.
What these America-firsters have just been starting to fully comprehend is that all terrorism is synthetically engineered and deployed by the major power factions which include the BCC/DVD and the Dual Citizen Zios using the resources of the nations that they have infiltrated and hijacked.
So now we have an essentially new faction that is waking up and beginning to understand that the USG and the top Pentagon Command structure has been infiltrated and hijacked by foreign espionage groups, the BCC/DVD and the Israeli-American Dual Citizen Zios.
This new up and coming faction of America-firsters in the Pentagon is now realizing that American soldiers have been sacrificed as mere cannon fodder in all these phony wars to make vast profits for the Military Industrial Complex (the Khazarian Banksters and their associated corporations).
The growing rage is becoming so thick you can cut it with a knife. But they also realize that some in the Pentagon High Command have been having special ops assassinated after they complete dangerous assignments or try to retire to keep them quiet.
Many of these special ops are now considered threats to the existing order in the Pentagon High Command after their missions are completed. It is feared that they are stand-up heroes that will speak out and testify against the BCC and the Zios (which are both major RICO crime syndicates in and of themselves) if they are ever subpoenaed once a new and real investigation of 9-11-01 begins.
Especially now since so many are becoming informed that 9-11-01 was a Gladio-style, inside-job False-flag attack on America by Israel, assisted by Traitors in the Pentagon and US Administration.
Many are beginning to realize what has been done to America by these Traitors in high positions of power and they are becoming quite angry about it and feel personally betrayed by the US Administration and the Pentagon High Military Command who they are trusting less and less as each day passes.
And add to that, the Pentagon has now been completely exposed for their part in creating training, supporting and paying ISIS, ISIL, Daesh, Al Nusra, Al Qaeda (AL CIA Duh). etc. And they have been completely checkmated so far in Syria by President Putin and the Russian Federation after being invited by their long time ally the Syrian Government to help defend Syria from terrorists. This has exposed the traitors in the top pentagon command structure for what they are and has made the Pentagon’s military capability look very weak.
But the folks that often do the heavy lifting with dangerous special missions and very little gratitude in return are the Special operations Soldiers including the Seal Teams, the Green Berets, Delta Force and the various Spooky teams. these Soldiers have traditionally had the highest degree of motivation and patriotism to America of any of the US Military and many are now finding out it has been misguided and abused by the pentagon high command structure.
The most vicious type of Treason and betrayal.
Not only do these special operations folks take on the most dangerous missions but they have been mistreated afterwards in many cases. Many now realize that the Seal Team that participated in the fake assassination of Osama bin Laden (CIA Trade-craft name Colonel Tim Osman) who actually died in late 2001 were all assassinated upon orders of the Pentagon High Command and the Administration to keep them from talking. Some of their surviving family members know this, others suspect it.
This is the same kind of dark treachery and treason that occurred when the Administration and Pentagon High Command abandoned all the POWs and MIAs in Vietnam to keep them from talking about the secret wars in Laos and Cambodia and all the CIA drug trafficking, including operation Whitestar which was a very, very sensitive operation involving UFO landings at night and opium trafficking. Most VT readers know it was Senator john McCain that worked hard to make sure the POWs and MIAs were left behind, just like his father covered up the Israeli False-flag attack on the USS Liberty Ship.
But many US Special Forces of different units are also finding out that 11 of the 12 spooky teams deployed to South America were all murdered to keep them from talking about the Pentagon and CIA’s massive drug trafficking and that the new norm is for the pentagon High Command to order the assassination of special ops when they are done with them so they can never talk.
Many in the Pentagon now blame Obama for allowing America to be completely checkmated in Syria by the Russian Federation and believe this was a major stand-down situation. This is especially true for the Zios who see all their gains from their attack on America on 9-11-01 rapidly slipping away. Being that much of Obama’s campaign funding came from the Zios who make a lot of money off of their defense corporate investments and more war, it is understandable why they may resent his reluctance to go into another total air and ground war for Israel and the Khazarian Mafia.
Others see Obama’s lack of willingness to enter into a full scale air and ground war is basically a response to new pressure coming from a saner element that is now arising within the Pentagon’s High Military Command that is perhaps linked to a certain faction of the Secret Shadow Government (SSG) responsible for handling the Alien ET/crashed UFO issues. This impressively powerful group is a new wild card that is beginning to apply major pressure to take back the Pentagon from the foreign based infiltrators, hijackers, Dual Citizen Traitors and sell-outs.
Others see Obama’s resistance to go beyond an apparent symbolic show of special ops and drone warfare due to financial advisers who have instructed him that the USG just plain does not have enough money to wage a total air and ground war which would have to be very long term in order to be successful. And he may now fully understand that such a total air and ground war would just be another war for Israel to fulfill their “greater Israel” plan and he is resistant to serving as Israel’s puppet like Bush2 did. But it could also be a combination of all these considerations.
Dissidence inside the Pentagon is growing by the day as more and more of the ranks find out that Israel and Traitors in the high Pentagon Command structure betrayed all Americans by attacking America on 9-11-01.
This realization sends shock waves through the mind and begs for resolution and pay back. It is far too late to put the genie back in the bottle or close Pandora’s Box because the truth about 9-11-01 being an engineered synthetic act of Gladio-style, False-flag, inside-job terror can not be extinguished and is spreading by the day. Soon everyone will understand how our own Administration and Pentagon High command betrayed us on that terrible day.
Right now everything is in flux inside the Pentagon and its High Command. Which faction will predominate as the BCC and the Zios fight for total control? Will the new emerging faction of America-firsters assert themselves and take control and will they be extremely motivated by the realization that the BCC and the Zios attacked America on 9-11-01? As the BCC and the Zios become more and more exposed every day for their treason and espionage against America, their power base wanes. Can they be neutralized fast enough to save America? That is the question.
A close examination suggests that the BCC is using the CMMM to leak disparaging information that will weaken the hold of the Dual Citizen Zios on the Pentagon. But it also seems evident that the Zios are using the CMMM to leak disparaging facts that will discredit the Bush Crime Cabal and Jeb’s chances for election to the Presidency. Right now Donald Trump is a wild card, no one seems to have a grasp what he would do as President as far as the Pentagon and warfare. But some suspect that he is the Pentagon’s America-firster’s choice to represent their interests. It is too soon to tell but we will find out soon enough.
And what might the BCC or the Zios do to increase their power? In the past they have had to collaborate in order to deploy major False-flag attacks like the Murrah bombing of the attack on America on 9-11-01. Are they in too much conflict right now to even do that? Or can they patch up their differences enough to deploy some kind of cooperation to ignite a nuclear WW3 which would certainly provide a covering situation for the degrading American economy as the whole World builds a financial firewall against the US Petro Dollar.
Unless cooler heads start prevailing we could see America drawn into a hot WW3 involving intercontinental nuclear detonations in major cities. It is high time to clean both the Bush holdouts (the BCCers) and the Dual Citizen Zios out of the Pentagon before America is completely destroyed and start making sure the Pentagon Defends the USA and its borders here and does not get entangled in foreign wars as our Founding Fathers warned against.
That means closing down all these wasteful military bases around the World and sealing our Borders and controlling immigration. It also means making sure that the Pentagon is dedicated to defense not offense and attacking other nations for the Khazarian Mafia Banksters and Drug Traffickers and their associated defense corporations who then feed back huge bribes and perks to compromised Members of Congress. It is necessary to rout out all these Globalist Khazarian Mafia infil-Traitors and hijackers of the American System and putting America and American Citizens first.
Until the American Masses rise up and arrest and jail the large “Too Big To Fail” Wall Street Banksters like they did in Iceland and cut off the elastic money supply which funds their matrix of bribery and human compromise of the USG and the Pentagon, America is doomed. But a good informed guess is that such a day is likely approaching.
And unless the American masses start understanding that all these USG officials that are constantly crying wolf over Mideast Terrorists are actually the real terrorists themselves that created all these mercenaries in the first place, we are doomed.
- The Khazarian Mafia is an abbreviationto represent the organized crime group that later morphed into theRothschild Khazarian Mafia. VT Financial Editor Mike Harris coined the term “Khazarian Mafia”. His VT radio, “The Short End of the Stick” show is on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7-9 PM CST. Mike Harris started using this descriptive term Khazarian Mafia after extensively researching the true but hidden history of the nation of Khazaria and its connection to Rothschild World Zionism now centered in the City of London. He also discovered the long held hatred that the RKM has harbored since about 1020 AD for the non-Khazarian Russians that is still a major motive for the Khazarian Mafia today in its quest to destroy Persia (Iran) and then encircle and once again destroy Russia. Their goal? To steal all Russia’s assets like in 1917, and mass-murdering any non-Khazarian Russians remaining alive, as a replay of their Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.

This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at his End of the American Dream blog.
Costs for healthcare, groceries, rent, mortgages, property taxes and other items are all ballooning, there are simply not enough good jobs to go around. This math doesn’t add up, and there are an awful lot of people suffering under this toxic combination of bad policies and corruption gone wild.
All over America, the middle class is dying and poverty is on the rise. One of the primary reasons for this is the rapidly rising cost of living in the United States. The cost of just about everything that average families shell out money for on a regular basis – food, rent, health insurance, etc. – is rising much faster than wages are. In a previous article I noted that the federal poverty level for a family of five is $28,410, but 51 percent of all American workers are making less than $30,000 a year at this point. We have seen an explosion in the number of people in this country that are considered to be “the working poor” and it gets worse with each passing year.
One of the most frustrating things for me personally is the rising cost of health insurance. Barack Obama promised that his program would result in a decline in health insurance premiums by as much as $2,500 per family, but in reality average family premiums have increased by a total of $4,865 since 2008.
Just recently, I got a letter informing me that my health insurance premiums would be going up by close to 20 percent in 2016. That is on top of an increase of more than 30 percent in 2015. Sadly, the exact same thing is happening to millions of other families all over the nation. The following comes from TruNews…
The Obamacare increases for 2016 have been released. Premiums will increase 3 times faster than officials claim.
Every state is different. Every insurer is different. New Mexico residents, for instance, can expect increases of 8 to 40 percent for the second-lowest cost silver plan. But for people in other states, including Arkansas the cost will increase less than 4 percent. Overall the average increase is 20.3 percent, according to analysis by The Daily Caller News Foundation, instead of the 7.5 percent originally asserted.
And of course it isn’t just health insurance. Every time I go to the grocery store I am stunned by the prices.
They often try to hide the price increases so that we will not notice them. Sometimes when I go food shopping I notice that some of my favorite things are “on sale”, but the sale prices are what the old “regular prices” used to be. And food companies just keep shrinking package sizes, but the amount we have to pay stays the same or goes up.
Unfortunately, our food dollars are never going to stretch any farther than they do right now. Thanks to erratic global weather, food prices are quickly moving higher. In fact, according to the Crux global food prices just rose by the most that we have seen in three years…
The effects of El Niño are starting to reach the dinner table, with global food prices rising the most in three years on supply concerns for everything from New Zealand milk to sugar in Brazil and Southeast Asian palm oil.
An index of 73 food prices increased 3.9%, the biggest jump since July 2012, to 162 in October, the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization wrote in a report Thursday.
The return of the El Niño weather phenomenon is changing weather conditions around the world, damaging crops with too much rain in some areas and not enough in others. The price of sugar increased more than that of any other commodity in the FAO report, soaring 17 percent, the most since September 2010. Excessive downpours in Brazil, the world’s largest producer, have slowed harvesting and reduced the amount of sweetener that can be extracted from cane.
As a result of this relentless squeeze on our pocketbooks, tens of millions of families are struggling to pay the bills from month to month, and the middle class is continually getting smaller. As the middle class shrinks, poverty is growing and more Americans are becoming dependent on the government than ever before. The following numbers come out of one of my previous articles entitled “21 Facts About The Explosive Growth Of Poverty In America That Will Blow Your Mind“…
#1 The U.S. Census Bureau says that nearly 47 million Americans are living in poverty right now.
#2 Other numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau are also very disturbing. For example, in 2007 about one out of every eight children in America was on food stamps. Today, that number is one out of every five.
#3 According to Kathryn J. Edin and H. Luke Shaefer, the authors of a new book entitled “$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America“, there are 1.5 million “ultrapoor” households in the United States that live on less than two dollars a day. That number has doubled since 1996.
#4 46 million Americans use food banks each year, and lines start forming at some U.S. food banks as early as 6:30 in the morning because people want to get something before the food supplies run out.
#5 The number of homeless children in the U.S. has increased by 60 percent over the past six years.
#6 According to Poverty USA, 1.6 million American children slept in a homeless shelter or some other form of emergency housing last year.
It has become exceedingly clear that “the American Dream” is dying and that the future is not very bright for “ordinary hard-working Americans”. I like how Rupert Cornwell described this in one of his recent articles…
The politicians still prattle on about “helping hard-working Americans” and “restoring the American dream”. But even as instinctively optimistic a breed as the Americans now believe they are being sold a bill of goods. What dream? The reality is that no longer is it a hard-working blue-collar American’s birthright to live better than his parents. Most probably, he or she will be worse off.
You might be one of those Americans that has fallen out of the middle class and into poverty.
Even in the midst of this so-called “economic recovery”, large numbers of formerly middle class Americans are losing their jobs and losing their homes. And a surprising number of them end up either living in their vehicles or living in the streets. The following comes from a recent article by Joshua Krause…
On any given night in America, there are over a half a million people living on the streets or in their vehicles. As you can imagine, that’s not a good place to be in your life, but it happens. If you think that this is something that might happen to you one day in the near future (and who are kidding, it could happen to anyone these days) here’s a word of advice: Don’t wait until the last-minute, hoping for that next job interview to come through as you burn through your savings. If homelessness is a real possibility in your life, it’s something that you should be preparing for, not waiting for.
The more money you have at your disposal when you decide to leave your home, the easier your life is going to be without a house. If you have no money, you’ll be living on the streets with little more than the clothes on your back. It’s better to put your savings towards a van or a truck that you can live in. Unlike living on the streets, you can actually maintain a fairly decent standard of living with very little money.
When I was growing up, it seemed like just about everyone in my entire high school was part of the middle class. But things have changed dramatically in America since that time. Today, the middle class is being absolutely eviscerated and our “leaders” don’t seem to care.
So is there a way out of this mess?

TN Note: Global taxation avoidance schemes are leading to a global taxation program where nobody will be able to dodge the bullet. Unfortunately, it will enable groups like the United Nations to derive an autonomous source of economic-related income.
Are you aware that the American government has been slowly giving away its power to international bureaucrats to determine how its businesses and citizens are taxed?
Most wars do not turn out the way the people who started them intended. Setting aside the hot military wars, look at the consequences of the “war on drugs” and the “war on money laundering and tax evasion.”
The global war on money laundering and tax evasion has failed in the three decades since it began in earnest, and it is now on its way to undermining the rule of law around the world, the legitimate role of financial institutions, and the right of sovereign governments to determine their own tax policies.
The new anti-money-laundering laws and regulations have resulted in millions of Americans who live abroad and others living outside their home countries being unable to get bank accounts and other financial services in the countries where they live.
Rather than protecting people who need financial services, government regulations are increasing their misery. Banks avoid potential government fines by dumping customers, whose source or use of their money is too difficult to figure out. International money-laundering expert, Burke Files, reported to me from Mombasa last week that in central Africa “more and more money is leaving the banking system to seek alternative remittances.
The money is now out of the system and being shipped in bulk currency, and the remitters are being forced to pay about 9 percent — from what was 3 percent to 4 percent.” The Financial Stability Board based in Basel, Switzerland, released a damning report last week on the decline in corresponding banking as a result of excess money-laundering regulations.
Most businesses are taxed at individual — not corporate — rates, because they are set up as sole proprietorships, partnerships and LLCs. You can be sure that the next effort will be to establish a minimum tax for all businesses everywhere on the globe, which will be quickly extended to all individuals. What right does the United States or France have to tell other countries what their tax rates must be? As global taxes are increasingly implemented, Americans and citizens of other countries will lose their democratic right to determine their own taxes — and Americans will be right back where they were under King George III. What happened to “no taxation without representation”?

THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING
From Olddog at http://anationbeguiled.com And http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com
Thank you for subscribing to my sites, and hopefully you will find information that will help you understand the real state of the Union. I am 75 years old and not a journalist by any means, and my involvement is for the purpose of showing the people just how close America is to total destruction and what they can do about it.
Each of us can at the very least, become astute and spread the info as far as each persons ability allows; otherwise we will be taken over by the powers that be and become just another fallen Nation.
If you never read anything else on my sites, please do read this one America’s Coming Crackup
If this article does not stir your heart and mind, and make you commit to learn and work for your future freedom, all I can say is you are truly brain dead already. Do you not know instinctively that freedom from tyrannical governance is one of the few things worth dying for?
Our lives have become so controlled that only a massive educated populace will have the standing to make demands for our return to a republic. In reality, if we do not produce a hundred million educated Americans who are willing to defy the powerful International Investment Banking Cartel, we will become a Nation of slaves.
My heart felt contention is, our human rights are from God Almighty which means they were not given to us by government and cannot be taken away by government. This is something worth dying for as no other method of living free from tyrannical governance has ever worked. In today’s America the Powers that be tell us our rights were given by them and are subject to their discretion, and there is no God. I say, A man is a fool who trusts his rights to a lawyer, his soul to a preacher, his health to a doctor, his wealth to a banker, and his happiness to a government.
The education and media industry have twisted our history until the majority will have to be totally re-educated on the principals of freedom before they are willing to stand up and be heard. I have spent thousands of hours searching for indisputable information sites. Hopefully you will learn from this web site all you need to know to help restore our republic.
Buy this book and you won’t have to read anyone’s site.
It is past time for the internet Patriots to wake up to the truth, learn it, and revise their commentary to fight it with all their might. This means educate the sheep non stop until they are as outraged as we all should be. We need to get this information out to a hundred million people ASAP. Why would an entire Nation accept a Corporation for a government? There is only one way for things to change for the better, and that is for a hundred million people to read this: You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher
Anna and James should receive National support for this gift to America. Now there is no excuse to continue supporting the political system that enslaves us, and every reader should make it a personal obligation to promote this work. I envision a hundred million people reading this book over and over until they can recite verbatim the skullduggery used to rob, rape, and pillage millions of unsuspecting Americas; not to mention the trillions of dollars these Tyrant Bankers have made from our ignorance. This fiasco is akin to a Preacher in a mega Church raping the women thereof and getting away with it for years, because they had so much faith in him. I will demand every family member and friend read this magnificent piece of research. More praise and info on this book will continue to be available at http://scannedretina.com/ and http://anationbeguiled.com ALSO http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com
GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEADS FOLKS, THE BASTARDS LIED TO US!
November 9th, 2015 by olddog
By Mike Adams,
(NaturalNews) “A mysterious bright light in the sky has sent Californians into panic,” reports the BBC. “Videos posted online show a bright flare rising high, before a wide, bright blue flash emerges in a cone shape. Many videos continue to track the light for several minutes.”
Last night, Californians immediately leapt to social media to propose their theories of the phenomenon, ranging from a nuclear missile attack to meteors. “Law agencies and news media in San Diego were flooded with calls about 6 p.m. from people reporting everything from a flare to a comet to a nuclear bomb in the western sky,” reports the San Diego Union Tribune.
Just a day earlier, the FAA had issued flight restrictions for the Los Angeles International Airport, denying aircraft access to one of the most frequent approach paths for international and domestic travel.
The official explanation is a lie
The “official” explanation of this event — and remember that “official” explanations are almost always cover stories — is that the U.S. Navy launched a test missile just because they “routinely” test missiles.
“Media in California confirmed that the light came from an unarmed Trident missile fired from the USS Kentucky navy submarine,” reports the BBC. While they call the missile “unarmed,” they fail to mention that the Trident missile normally carries a thermonuclear warhead. There’s also no way for the media to know whether this missile was really unarmed or not, as the sole source on that question is the U.S. Navy itself.
Apparently the media thinks the public is so incredibly stupid that they’ll believe the U.S. Navy has nowhere else to launch a test missile other than right next to Los Angeles. Somehow we’re supposed to believe the entire Pacific Ocean won’t work for such a test launch, so they have to launch it adjacent to the airport and thereby inconvenience commercial aviation traffic for an entire week.
Obviously, the official cover story is pure bunk. So what’s the real story behind this? It all has to do with China and the covert war that’s already underway between China, the US and Russia.
China’s military submarines are a huge threat to U.S. national security
To get up to speed on what’s really happening, read this report from the Congressional Research Service (PDF) found at http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/row/RL33153.pdf
Authored by Ronald O’Rourke, Specialist in Naval Affairs, and just released on Sep. 21, 2015, the report is entitled, “China Naval Modernization: Implications for U.S. Navy Capabilities.”
The report states:
China is building a modern and regionally powerful navy with a limited but growing capability for conducting operations beyond China’s near-seas region. Observers of Chinese and U.S. military forces view China’s improving naval capabilities as posing a potential challenge in the Western Pacific to the U.S. Navy’s ability to achieve and maintain control of blue-water ocean areas in wartime — the first such challenge the U.S. Navy has faced since the end of the Cold War.
China’s naval modernization effort encompasses a broad array of platform and weapon acquisition programs, including anti-ship ballistic missiles (ASBMs), anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCMs), submarines, surface ships, aircraft, and supporting C4ISR (command and control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) systems.
The most important section of this report, in my assessment, is this description of China’s ship-killing ballistic missiles:
China is fielding an ASBM, referred to as the DF-21D, that is a theater-range ballistic missile equipped with a maneuverable reentry vehicle (MaRV) designed to hit moving ships at sea. DOD states that China continues to field an ASBM based on a variant of the CSS-5 (DF-21) MRBM that it began deploying in 2010. This missile provides the PLA the capability to attack aircraft carriers in the western Pacific. The CSS-5 Mod 5 has a range exceeding 1,500 km [about 810 nm] and is armed with a maneuverable warhead.
China, in other words, has weapons capable of destroying U.S. aircraft carriers, destroyers and other ships. The 1,500 km range is key because it allows a very wide operational range.
Just recently in August, the Chinese and Russians held their largest naval joint exercise in history as a way to “counter U.S. influence in Asia.” As reported by Collapse.news:
The Russian and Chinese navies are set to hold their largest joint exercises ever, featuring scores of warships, hundreds of troops and an amphibious landing, in what appears to be a deepening of ties meant to counter a rising U.S. military presence in Asia.
In September, Chinese warships were spotted operating near the coast of Alaska. This was reported across the mainstream media, including in the Wall Street Journal in an article entitled, “Five Chinese Navy Ships Are Operating in Bering Sea off Alaska.”
Fox News also covered the same story: “5 Chinese warships spotted off Alaska coast during President Obama’s visit.”
In response to that territorial provocation, the U.S. Navy sent the USS Lassen destroyer to within 12 nautical miles of China’s newly-constructed military bases in the Spratly Islands.
China’s communist government openly condemned the act as a provocation of war. From the Straits Times:
China claims most of the South China Sea and on Oct 9 its Foreign Ministry warned that Beijing would “never allow any country to violate China’s territorial waters and airspace in the Spratly Islands, in the name of protecting freedom of navigation and overflight.”
Secret space weapon attacks on China’s industrial infrastructure
This is all on top of the Pentagon’s secret space weapon attacks on China’s industrial infrastructure.
As I wrote on August 17 of this year, Natural News was informed by mainland Chinese dissidents that they believe the string of mysterious industrial explosions such as the massive Tianjin explosion was caused by kinetic strikes from orbital platform weapons operated by the United States.
China then retaliated by covertly destroying a U.S. weapons depot in Tokyo, using old-school sabotage techniques. Two additional industrial explosions in China soon followed.
Taiwan surrenders to China with insane “One China” admission by President Ma
China’s war of aggression is also in high gear on the geopolitical side, with China pressuring Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou to publicly state yesterday that Taiwan is now part of China!
A massive cultural backlash in Taiwan is now surging, as most of the country’s citizens do not want to be part of communist China. Taiwan’s DPP party is rapidly rising to prominence on the platform of Taiwan as a sovereign nation, but China remains in an aggressive military stance, always threatening Taiwan with an armed invasion if Taiwan attempts to “secede” from China. (Taiwan’s GMT party, which is a “pro-China” party, has been plagued by an endless stream of scandals and corruption.)
From Channel News Asia: “Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou emphasised the island must continue to uphold the 1992 Consensus with China’s Communist Party in order to promote cross-strait relations and development, as he marked the 22nd anniversary of the historic talks between Taipei and Beijing in Singapore.”
Taiwan is a critical strategic island for U.S. influence over the Pacific naval theater of operations. Taiwan’s airports and military basis provide key strategic locations for staging U.S. aircraft and even bombers if conflict breaks out with China.
As you ponder all this, keep in mind that Taiwan’s media giants have all been infiltrated and taken over by communist China. The Taiwan media is now China’s state-run media. Only small, independent websites can be trusted to report the truth.
The Trident missile launch near Los Angeles was a warning shot against China in a last-ditch effort to prevent all-out war
The upshot of all this is that the U.S. and China have been engaged in a covert war for quite some time, and that covert war has escalated month by month, even as the official state-run news organizations of both nations have denied any war is happening at all.
Last night’s test launch of the Trident missile over Orange County was staged near a high population area for a tactical reason: To have as many witnesses (and videos) as possible, sending a very visible warning message to China that says, “We can destroy you if you don’t back off.”
The Trident missile, built by Lockheed Martin, is a thermonuclear missile system (Fleet Ballistic Missile) with a range of at least 4,000 nautical miles. See the Trident missile page on the U.S. Navy website. Just one Trident missile launched from somewhere in the Pacific Ocean could devastate China with a nuclear strike on Beijing.
The U.S. Navy’s “showcasing” of the Trident missile near Los Angeles is a $31 million billboard that tells China, “Don’t f–k with us.”
Nobody in the mainstream media is report this; probably because, with a few exceptions, they are mostly clueless, brain-dead propagandists who know nothing about international geopolitics and the real state of conflict in our world. Also, they are ordered what to write by the U.S. government regime in exactly the same way China’s “journalists” are ordered what to write by the Chinese regime.
Right now, the United States and China are in an undeclared state of war. China stands ready to strike the USA with nuclear warheads or high altitude EMP weapons that would destroy the U.S. power grid and cause 90% casualties across the unprepared population. Legendary American journalist Ted Koppel has even written a book about this entitled Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath.
China and Russia preparing massive first strike against America
Many people believe that China and Russia are working together to prepare for a massive first strike against the United States that would cripple its defenses and economy. Following that first strike, a land invasion would commence using Russian troops.
Supporting this theory, Russian submarines have been spotted near undersea internet cables in an obvious effort to document their whereabouts so that the cables can be instantly severed, unleashing a devastating blow to the U.S. economy, Wall Street and even military communications. “Russian submarines and spy ships are aggressively operating near the vital undersea cables that carry almost all global Internet communications, raising concerns among some American military and intelligence officials that the Russians might be planning to attack those lines in times of conflict,” reports WND.com. ” In times of tension or conflict, the ultimate Russian hack on the United States could involve severing the fiber-optic cables at some of their hardest-to-access locations to halt the instant communications on which the West’s governments, economies and citizens have grown dependent.”
At the same time a new Russian “drone sub” has been created that can strike U.S. coastal cities and harbors with nuclear weapons. Writing on NationalSecurity.news, Jon Dougherty states, “According to officials, the developmental unmanned underwater vehicle, or UUV, when it is deployed, will be outfitted with megaton-class nuclear warheads that can destroy key ports used by U.S. nuclear-armed and powered submarines like Kings Bay, Georgia, and Puget Sound in Washington state.”
The ultimate pre-emptive strike on America: EMP attack, cyber attack, currency wars and bandwidth blackouts
If you put the pieces of the puzzle together, what’s really shaping up here is a massive, multi-layered pre-emptive strike against America, an empire seen by the rest of the world as an insane bully that meddles with everything on the international stage. This first strike, combining the forces and expertise of both China and Russia, may consist of:
• High-altitude EMP detonation over North America, destroying regional power grids.
• A devastating currency war initiated by China announcing its own gold-backed currency while dumping U.S. Treasury debt on the open market.
• A Russian-led severing of undersea fiber optic cables.
• Russian-launched nuclear missiles targeting U.S. coastal cities.
• China-led assault on U.S. Navy warships using anti-ship ballistic missiles (ASBMs).
• A cyber warfare attack on key U.S. infrastructure, including water delivery systems, nuclear power plants and the power grid.
As all this is going on, the Obama administration — a treasonous regime of criminals who have seized control of the U.S. government in an effort to destroy America from within — has been firing all the top military commanders who know how to survive such an assault. Instead of America’s military focusing on how to win wars, troops are now subjected to sensitivity training and the politically correct push for female troops on the front lines.
This is not fiction. Even the U.S. White House is now openly preparing for a massive EMP attack launched by China.
Dave Hodges also reports in this article about World War III:
Congress has now heard testimony that the United States is not ready for World War III while Russia is chomping at the bit to “get it on”. Further Congress has learned that Obama has been once again been badly outmaneuvered by Putin, the master chess player… the Chinese and the Russians are going to kick America’s rear end in the upcoming war.
Very disturbingly, there is a growing awareness, among Congress, that the United States cannot win World War III. There was only discussion, in these congressional meetings, as to whether, or not, the U.S. could prevail in World War III, not win the conflict.
To stay up to speed on all these events and how you might survive them, I strongly urge you to pay attention to the following websites:

By Brandon Turbeville
Over the last few years, the world has witnessed the gradual positioning on the Grand Chessboard by the United States, NATO, and Russian forces in the Middle East, most notably in Syria. The aggressive push by the U.S. to overthrow Assad and destroy a Syrian government capable of resisting the will of the Anglo-American powers resulted in a defensive Russian response that soon morphed into an out-maneuvering of Washington on the Syrian front. However, the West is not ready to take its ball and go home just yet and it has now mounted yet another escalation in Syria.
In the past several days, a number of announcements have been made by both the United States and Russia suggesting that we are now witnessing more than a mere placement of chess pieces on the board but the forward motion to some greater confrontation between two nuclear superpowers.
Throughout most of the Syrian crisis, the situation was one of semi-covert proxy war. However, with recent developments the situation is now more of semi-open conflict between the United States and Russia.
For instance, the potential for direct military conflict between the two superpowers became a much greater possibility earlier in the month when Russia “announced” that it was sending a number of Special Forces soldiers to Syria. The Wall Street Journal has since tried to represent these troops as having been transferred from Eastern Ukraine, a claim backed up by an anonymous “Russian official.” However, while it is clear that Russia is indeed operating via Special Forces in Ukraine, the likelihood that a loyal “Russian official” would reveal such sensitive information to the U.S. media is highly suspect.
Regardless, it was reported by Chris Hughes of the UK Daily Mirror in early October that Russia’s Spetsnaz unit were being moved to Syria in order to combat ISIS and other assorted “relatively moderate cannibals” and it is certainly within the realm of possibility and reasonable military strategy that Russian Special Forces have been deployed to Syria. Russia has officially denied the presence of Special Forces troops in Syria for the record.
The United States, however, is not even attempting to deny the presence of U.S. Special Forces troops in Syria and instead is advertising the plan publicly. Last week, President Barack Obama announced that the United States would be deploying 50 US Special Forces troops to Syria under the guise of “fighting ISIS” and engaging in “aid and assist” missions with forces fighting ISIS and ostensibly the Syrian government.
Of course, US Special Forces have long been active in Syria. From taking place in direct combat support missions for terrorist actors to logistical organization and spotting maneuvers, Special Forces have been having an a cogent effect on the ability of terrorist forces to mount militarily sound attacks on government held positions for some time.
According to Sputnik, these Special Forces are not only operating far afield in the East where ISIS and “relatively moderate cannibals” have a tight grip on territory, they are operating in the West, where the Syrian government is the dominant force and where the Russian military is assisting in the mop up of terrorists most heavily. Sputnik reports,
US military advisors are alleged to have started training so-called moderate rebels near the city of Salma in the Latakia province in what amounts to breaking a pledge not to put US boots on the ground in Syria, Lebanon’s satellite television channel al-Mayadeen reported, citing an unnamed military source.
If the reports, attributed to an “unnamed Lebanese source,” are to be believed, then US Special Forces are right in the middle of some of the heaviest fighting between Syrian government/Russian military/PDF and Western-backed terrorists.
On November 4, Reuters reported that Russian military personnel stationed in Syria now numbers around 4,000.
All of this taken together suggests that there is a very real possibility that the United States and Russia will soon see an escalation from semi-covert proxy war via terrorists and Syrian government forces (though one can hardly call Assad’s forces proxies for Russia) to open conflict between U.S. and Russian Special Forces on the ground.
The question then becomes “what will happen if Russian Special Forces engage in combat against terrorists supported by and embedded with U.S. Special Forces?” How far will this conflict escalate? Will the Americans respond? Will the Russians and the Americans being firing on one another?
Indeed, if the United States commits itself to stay the course until the conflict is brought to an end, a confrontation between the two forces is almost inevitable since the Russian goal is to secure the territory currently held by the Assad government before moving East.
And then there is the air component.
The Air Component
While the United States has been bombing Syrian civilian infrastructure and, apparently, empty spaces and desert sand, the Russians have launched a brilliant move of bombing actually aimed at terrorists on the ground. The results are stunning. Only a few weeks of Russian airstrikes have revealed that, when an air force actually bombs ISIS, ISIS can be defeated. So far, the parallel bombing campaigns have taken place without a clash between Russian and American pilots. However, many have been wondering since the start of the Russian bombing just how long this period of conflict avoidance will continue?
After all, if the Russians continue to bomb terrorists in Syria and the Americans continue to bomb in support of them, particularly in terms of setting up a “No-Fly Zone,” then a clash is virtually inevitable. That is, unless someone gives way and backs down. The Russians are not likely to do so because, in addition to the moral high ground on this issue, Russia is acting in strategic self-defense. To back down now would mean to ensure an even more aggressive attack on Russian interests and Russia itself in the very near future.
The United States, despite being the aggressor and in clear violation of international law as well as having the most leeway in terms of being able to back down respectably, is aware that if it does so its terrorist proxies will be wiped off the Syrian map and its onslaught against the Syrian government, Syrian people, and Russia will have been routed. Of course, this assumes that the United States truly wants to avoid a direct military confrontation with Russia to begin with, an idea that is not necessarily guaranteed.
Signs that the U.S. and Russia may soon be fighting one another over the skies of Syria recently appeared with the announcement that the United States will be deploying around a dozen fighter jets designed specifically for air-to-air combat – essentially dogfights – to Syria. Since ISIS has no air force, one can only assume that the jets are there to combat other fighter jets belonging to Assad and Russia. As The Daily Beast reports,
The U.S. Air Force is deploying to Turkey up to a dozen jet fighters specializing in air-to-air combat—apparently to help protect other U.S. and allied jets from Russia’s own warplanes flying over Syria.
Officially, the deployment of F-15C Eagle twin-engine fighters to Incirlik, Turkey—which the Pentagon announced late last week—is meant to “ensure the safety” of America’s NATO allies, Laura Seal, a Defense Department spokesperson, told The Daily Beast.
That could mean that the single-seat F-15s and the eight air-to-air missiles they routinely carry will help the Turkish air force patrol Turkey’s border with Syria, intercepting Syrian planes and helicopters that periodically stray into Turkish territory.
But more likely, the F-15s will be escorting attack planes and bombers as they strike ISIS militants in close proximity to Syrian regime forces and the Russian warplanes that, since early October, have bombed ISIS and U.S.-backed rebels fighting the Syrian troops. [emphasis added]
In other words, the planes will be used to fight planes that are actually fighting ISIS. Even the notoriously deceptive Daily Beast was forced to report on the fact that these planes are indeed being deployed for the purpose of staving off Russian fighter jets. It reports,
Seal declined to discuss the deployment in detail, but hinted at its true purpose. “I didn’t say it wasn’t about Russia,” she said.
Russia’s air wing in western Syria is notable for including several Su-30 fighters that are primarily air-to-air fighters. The Su-30s’ arrival in Syria raised eyebrows, as Moscow insists its forces are only fighting ISIS, but ISIS has no aircraft of its own for the Su-30s to engage.
The F-15s the U.S. Air Force is sending to Turkey will be the first American warplanes in the region that are strictly aerial fighters. The other fighters, attack planes and bombers the Pentagon has deployed—including F-22s, F-16s, A-10s and B-1s—carry bombs and air-to-ground missiles and have focused on striking militants on the ground.
In stark contrast, the F-15s only carry air-to-air weaponry, and their pilots train exclusively for shooting down enemy warplanes. It’s worth noting that F-15Cs have never deployed to Afghanistan, nor did they participate in the U.S.-led occupation of Iraq. The war in Syria is different. [emphasis added]
It should be noted that, of the two parties, only the Russians are acting legally since Russia was invited in to Syria by the Syrian government while the United States is acting in violation of national sovereignty and international law as an aggressor.
Regardless, the recent U.S. escalation has now placed the world in a precarious position where two nuclear powers are acting in such close proximity to one another militarily that one trigger happy pilot or even one trigger happy soldier could now plunge the globe into a nuclear holocaust.It is precisely this that the American people must begin to mobilize against before it is too late for us all.

It looks to me like the dirt bag war mongers in DC are going to put America in an economic collapse so the Banking Cartel can stick it in our ass with their ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. Obuma must be having continuous orgasms.

With all that has been written about the events inside of Syria and Iran, which have accompanied recent Russian aggression, I have read very little about the underlying motivations for what is occurring in this volatile part of the world. This article identifies the four major reasons which underlies the Russian military presence in Syria.
1. Russia is Protecting Its Only Middle East Allies
ISIS is a CIA creation. As former Army Special Operations Officer, Scott Bennett states, “ISIS was a CIA creation, supplied by illegally-left-behind military equipment in Iraq”. According to Bennett, ISIS is funded by CIA sponsored, covert Swiss bank accounts. ISIS’ purpose was to eventually bleed over into Syria, where they would help ferment the collapse of the Assad regime. Once Syria had been toppled, Iran would be invaded and the Federal Reserve’s Petrodollar would be saved. Conversely, Syria and Iran are Russia’s only path into the Middle East. Subsequently, Putin has very cleverly turned the tables on the CIA strategy to use ISIS to topple Syria and this has provided Russia with a pretext to have a military presence in the region.
2. Russia is Leading the Charge Away from the Petrodollar
The BRICS have attacked the sacred Federal Reserve by undermining the Petrodollar.
At the beginning of the of the Syria/Iran crisis, all of the world’s nations used the dollar as the world’s reserve currency except for IRAN and SYRIA. So long as the world used the dollar as a prerequisite to purchase oil, the nations of the world would always prove to be subservient to the United States and its “Petrodollar”. The Federal Reserve dollar has been the world’s reserve currency since 1944. It provides the only backing for the dollar. Without the dollar being on World Reserve currency status, the dollar would hyper-inflate and crash in a very short amount of time. The lives of average Americans would be over as they have known it.
There have been past attempts to abandon the practice of purchasing Iraqi oil without first going through the Federal Reserve to purchase the Petrodollar. In the early 1990’s, France and Germany attempted to use the Euro to “quietly purchase” oil from Iraq. Iraq was invaded by the United States. When history repeated itself, Iraq was invaded again, and Saddam Hussein was executed. When Libya did not play ball with the Central banks over much of the same issue, it was invaded and Gadhafi was executed. Going back in history, Abraham Lincoln was executed for similar reasons. When JFK printed silver certificates in an attempt to bypass the Federal Reserve, he was also executed. Putin is standing tall in opposition to this trend. At the end of the day, he too, will be executed or assassinated once he has fulfilled his purpose.
While growing weary of paying higher prices for oil in order to prop up the Petrodollar, Russia, under Putin, led a bold charge away from the world reserve status of the dollar. Iran and Syria began to sell its oil for gold. India, Brazil, South Africa and most of all, China joined the revolution against the dollar and the BRICS were formed. The US postured to invade Iran under the pretense that Iran was developing nuclear weapons. Russia and China both threatened to nuke the United States and Obama backed down. All of this adds up to the death of the dollar and ultimately, World War III.
These events have resulted in Putin taking away the moral high ground from the United States and have paralyzed US military policy in the Middle East. As a result, the dollar now has a date with destiny. Putin’s actions are leaving the Federal Reserve without backing for the dollar. With a $19 trillion dollar deficit, a $240 trillion dollar unfunded and mandated liabilities (e.g. Social Security, Medicare, etc.) and a whopping $1.5 quadrillion dollar credit swap derivatives debt, the dollar, after losing much of its former Petrodollar status, is the on the verge of collapse and it could happen any day.
3. Russia Is Preparing to Invade the Middle East
Russia’s excuse to eradicate ISIS on the pretense of saving the Assad regime of Syria, has provided Russia with a means to build a military base of operations in Syria and serves to provide a path in which they can invade US-friendly Middle East partner oil-rich nations who are promoting the continuance of the Petrodollar. Quite frankly, I am surprised that the United States, under Federal Reserve Board leadership, has not already launched a nuclear first strike. I fear that day is coming. The Federal Reserve will not go down without a fight. The Russian counter strategy is to occupy as many parts of the world as possible, thus, making it impossible for the US to effectively counter the BRICS economic war upon the Petrodollar.
4. All the World Is a Stage and Putin is the Leading Man
Putin is ex-KGB. As a result, following the collapse of the former Soviet Union, the KGB morphed into the Russian mafia and ruthlessly controlled Russian politics, media and much of its foreign policy. The Russian mafia was a brutal entity. In short, Putin is a thug, a KGB Mafioso thug who has brutally murdered tens of thousands of his own people. The fools that engage in worshipping Putin are very misguided. The only reason that Putin enjoys rock star status among some misinformed Americans is because he publicly espouses the beliefs of Russian people, which also represents mainstream middle class American values. Putin is openly anti-gay, while the White House displays the colors of the rainbow after the Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage. Putin has banned GMO’s, while Congress blocks any legitimate control over Monsatan, and Putin has told the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) to go to hell, while Obama is their lap dog. Putin is actually arrogant enough and enough of a demagogue to believe that he can overcome the satanically inspired banking forces on the planet. Eventually, Putin will suffer the same fate as Saddam Hussein.
Short of divine intervention, World War III is a foregone conclusion. Each and any of these four reasons will culminate in the final date with destiny. In short, Putin is being used by BIS to move the planet toward World War III. The BIS wants World War III in order to promote order out of chaos. They want a war of political and economic unification. Putin is their unwitting accomplice to this end. At the end of the day, Putin, like Obama, will lead their respective nations to total annihilation and the final version of the New World Order will be upon us.
