I get dozens and sometimes hundreds of letters, messages, emails, etc. from people wanting help with court problems– all in foreign courts that have no natural jurisdiction and no right to be here applying their “law” to our people.
The Root Problem is that thanks to fraud and falsification of public records, our people have been registered as their people without anyone’s knowledge or consent. This self-interested fraud on the part of governmental services corporations needs to be recognized for what it is and forthrightly rebutted.
Deny them jurisdiction over you and you deny them any ability to proceed — regardless of the issue be it foreclosure or child custody or driving without a license.
You were born on the land of one of the American states. You are by birthright “one of the free sovereign and independent people of the United States” and NOT an “inhabitant” — a British Crown Subject merely “residing” here. Both these political statuses are clearly defined in The Definitive Treaty of Peace known as the Treaty of Paris 1783 ending the Revolutionary War, Article 3.
But… Within hours of your birth you were defrauded of your birthright when your Mother was coerced into unknowingly registering your “birth” as a British Crown Subject instead of “one of the free sovereign and independent people of the United States”.
This in turn creates the “presumption” that like all British Crown Subjects you are merely here to provide “essential governmental services” (Constitution of 1789, Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2) and are obligated to obey their corporate statutory “law”.
And that is how and why they presume against you and tax you and carry out all their crimes against you.
How do you rebut this?
You identify yourself as the living man or woman appearing in the flesh, one of the free sovereign and independent people of the United States and not an inhabitant as defined by the Definitive Treaty of Peace 1783, one of those owed “essential governmental services” under Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2 of the 1789 Constitution, guaranteed your right of expatriation by the Expatriation Act of 1868, the retention of your native political status by the Geneva Convention Protocols of 1949, Laws of War, Volume II, Article 3, and the right of Self-Declaration guaranteed by the United Nations Universal Right of Self-Declaration.
Then further inform the court that the essential government services you are owed do not include defrauding you, miss-administering your estate, or mischaracterizing you as an inhabitant of the District of Columbia or any “federal Territory” whatsoever.
Then clearly state that you are the only one having any first hand knowledge of your nature, intentions, motivations, will or any other matter of fact concerning you and that every word dropping from you lips is to be understood by the court as a Matter of Fact and all else that anyone may say is only immaterial hearsay and presumption.
Then proceed to ream them brand new paper bung holes about whatever it is they are bothering you about–
You are exempt and any vessels in commerce operated in your name are tax pre-paid. You are a Priority Creditor of the court, the banks and the corporations they employ, having the absolute right to offset any thing you may owe them against all that they already owe you and properly demanding the benefit of your exemption.
Your biological children are your creation, accepted and supported by you, belonging only to you, and are not entrusted to anyone or any thing else by you; and that is a Matter of Fact not subject to any fictitious claim or interpretation by the court.
You received no “loan” and retain all security interest provided contingent on the receipt of a loan; you require the return of the Promissory Note and Incomplete Mortgage Agreement paperwork. If anyone asks, reply that the Promissory Note is more than nine months old, the transaction was never completed, no loan was received by you and the whole process is void for fraud, including any presumption of a valid security interest. Any check received from the bank was merely a transfer of your own credit and the bank cannot show any other source of funds for the transaction.
Driving without a license?
You were traveling for private purposes and who can say otherwise?
You are stating Matters of Fact known to you on a firsthand basis. All else is hearsay and presumption.
And to all the above and more you may add that the court’s presumption of jurisdiction over you and your property are in violation of both the Public Law and The Constitution and will not be respected as anything but attempted personage and fraud against one of their Priority Creditors and Benefactors.
Get your backs up. Tell it like it is. Let the facts be plainly stated. Remember who you are and tell the “court” off. Be polite– but ice cold and determined. What they are doing is a rude and unconscionable affront to you and a false claim being made against you and your property? Be appropriately outraged and hold your head high. Peer down at your miscreant employee sitting on that bench and demand to know who he thinks he is and what he thinks he is doing?

I assume that sooner or later I will have a confrontation with what is euphemistically called law enforcement, and will most likely be murdered for lack of memory recall, as I have no intention of letting them arrest me. Most all of the uniformed tyrants would much rather kill someone rather than be humiliated back at the station for letting someone convince them they have no jurisdiction over me. Such as this is the real state of the union. Even if I could recall the exact words to use in my defense, can you imagine the average cop being intelligent enough to understand and accept he has been miss-informed for his entire life or a bailiff who refuses to obey a judge? Stay armed and capable everywhere you go. If the worst they can do is murder me, I consider that a gift because living under their tyranny is hell on earth.

From the writings of Anna von Reitz. Big Lake Alaska September 2014
The most recent round of fraud began on March 28, 1861. That was the day the Congress of the united States of America adjourned for lack of quorum and never reconvened. Ever since, “Congress” has functioned in one of three
roles—(1) as a corporate Board of Directors for private, mostly foreign-owned and deceptively named governmental services corporations operated by banking cartels (the Federal Reserve running the “United States of America, Inc.” and the IMF running the “UNITED STATES”) or (2) the government of a legislative democracy calling itself the United States of America (Minor)—American “states” more often thought of as federal territories and possessions— Guam, Puerto Rico, etc., or (3) operating as a plenary oligarchy ruling the Washington DC Municipal Government.
All this time that you thought the members of Congress were representing you and your interests, they’ve been representing other interests entirely. That explains a lot, doesn’t it?
On March 6, 1933 the “President” of the “United States of America, Inc.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt attended a Conference of Governors meeting. These “Governors” were all “State” franchise managers of the United States of
America, Inc., exactly like local franchise owners of Burger King or Sears. They got together and pledged the assets of their customers—their employers—the American states and people——as “sureties” for their private corporate
debts. And then they bankrupted the “United States of America” and all the “State” franchises.
The “federal” States that were created by the 14th Amendment of their private for-profit corporation’s look-alike, sound-alike “constitution” published as the “Constitution of the United States of America” are not the same as the
actual States of the Union, nor are their “State” citizens the same as American State Citizens, nor are their “US citizens” the same as Citizens of the united States, but they pretended that they were and the banks gleefully agreed.
To secure the debt owed by the “United States of America, Inc.” the banks established maritime salvage liens against every parcel of land, every business, every man, woman, and child in America, and continued to operate their
doppelganger corporation under Chapter 11 Reorganization. They laid claim to your “good faith and credit” —stole your credit cards— and your identity as an American State Citizen, and they never bothered to tell the victim.
They also had you declared legally dead and probated your estate and issued bonds based on the value of your labor and private property. Just look at “your” Birth Certificate—signed by the County Registrar, an officer of the probate
court, issued in the NAME of a “dead person”—you, numbered as a bond and issued on bond paper. At the same time, they converted all your private bank accounts to the ownership of the ESTATE trust they created “in your
name” and moved the ESTATE offshore to Puerto Rico where you and your assets supposedly came under the foreign maritime jurisdiction of the United States of America (Minor). Look at the NAME on “your” bank account checks.
Look at the signature line under a high powered magnifier. The IMF claims that it owns all your bank accounts. It claims that your ESTATE was “abandoned”, and now all the spoils belong to the bank. They are pressing “Congress”
to pass “laws” to allow them to seize all American bank accounts—your savings, your retirement accounts, your checking accounts, everything.
We’ve seen Dodd-Frank. Now we are seeing “bail-in” proposals. The Big Banks want “Congress” to front for their greed and criminality—again.
This is all fiduciary trust fraud and fiduciary trust fraud has no statute of limitations. 1862 or 1933 or 2014—it makes no difference. We suggest that members of Congress assume their public offices acting under full 100% individual commercial liability —or be ousted and tried as criminals.
Next, we suggest that they honor their contract with America and issue debt-free public money— real American Dollars. Next, liquidate all the “too big to fail” banks, tear up the corporate charters these entities have violated, seize back our purloined assets, and shut them all down.
Meanwhile, the market for financial services will open up for banks operated under actual state charters.
This thing you have thought of as your government is nothing but a multi-national conglomerate run criminally amok.
The real government of this country is vested in each of you. You all hold more civil authority on the land than the entire federal government.
Deal with the “FEDERAL RESERVE” and “IMF” and “CONGRESS” the same way you would deal with “TARGET” or “WALMART” or “ARBY’S” if they grossly endangered, cheated, enslaved, and defrauded you.
Keep calm and get even. You all know what to do. You have the guaranteed Universal Right of Self-Declaration provided by United Nations Conventions, plus the protections of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. You have the Geneva Conventions and the Lieber Code.
You have the preserved right to Common Law, guaranteed by Uniform Commercial Code 1-308 and recourse guaranteed by 1-103.6, which includes the right not to be bound by any contract that is unilateral, inequitable,
involuntary, undisclosed, tainted by fraud, not in-kind, entered in your behalf by others merely claiming to represent you, or deemed to exist as the result of receiving a compelled benefit or fruit of monopoly inducement.
You have the absolute right to Expatriate from their maritime jurisdiction.
When 400 million Americans stand up and clean house, the world will listen and hear the roar.
The only mistake I have seen in Anna’s work is (we do not have 400 million citizens) If we did, I seriously doubt if one tenth of them would have the intelligence to wipe their ass, let alone conduct these instructions. The government controlled education system has perfected their system of dumbing down the people. All they want is pop-corn, laughs and lots of short orgasms.

By Charles Hugh Smith
Many well-intended people want to reform the status quo for all sorts of worthy reasons: to reduce wealth inequality, restore democracy, create good-paying jobs, and so on.
All these goals are laudable, but if we don’t change the way money is created and distributed, nothing really changes: wealth inequality will keep rising, governance will remain a bidding process of the wealthy, wages will continue stagnating, etc.
If the money creation/distribution system isn’t transformed, “reform” is nothing more than ineffectual policy tweaks that offer do-gooders the illusion of progress.
Mike Swanson of Wall Street Window and I discuss the The Future of Currencies and CHS’s New Book A Radically Beneficial World (33:21)
Few are willing to admit that the way we create and distribute money at the top of the wealth pyramid necessarily generates increasing wealth inequality because once we admit this, we realize 1) the money system itself is the source of inequality and 2) we have to change the money system if we want to stave off the inevitable rise of wealth inequality to the point that it generates social disorder.
In the current system, money is created by central and private banks at the top of the wealth/power pyramid, and distributed within the top of the wealth pyramid. The only possible output of this system is rising wealth inequality and debt-serfdom for three reasons:
1. Those with first access to nearly free money can outbid savers and serfs who must borrow at much higher rates of interest to snap up income-producing assets. In effect, borrowing unlimited sums at near-zero rates guarantees that those with this privilege have a built-in advantage in buying income-producing assets. The only possible output of this system is the rich get richer as they buy up all the most profitable and lowest-risk income-producing assets.
2. Those who can borrow virtually unlimited sums at less than 1% interest skim vast wealth by loaning the money out to everyone below the top of the pyramid at 4% (mortgages), 8% (other loans), and 18% (credit cards). This funnels much of the national income stream to those who can borrow cheap and lend the money at much higher rates.
3. Since the wealthy already own most of the income-producing assets, the easiest way to boost their wealth is to bid up those assets with cheaply borrowed money. For example, borrowing $100 million and using it for stock buybacks leverages the value of the shares by far more than $100 million.
Three different perspectives of the wealth pyramid illustrate how our money system generates wealth inequality as the only possible output of the system:
The system of central banks, private banks and fractional reserve lending is global. The net result is that globally, the vast majority of wealth is owned and controlled by those at the very apex of the wealth/power pyramid: the top 8% own 85% of global wealth.
In the U.S., the wealth-income pyramid can be represented by an inverted pyramid: the bulk of wealth and income are in the hands of the top 5%. The bottom 80% own an essentially trivial percentage of the national wealth.
This pyramid illustrates how the money creation and distribution pyramid works:
There are a number of proposed alternatives to this the rich can only get richer and the rest of us can only get poorer system. The only real solution in my view is to create and distribute money at the base of the pyramid, to those generating useful goods and services in the community economy, rather than to those in the top of the pyramid. This money isn’t borrowed into existence, so there is no interest to be skimmed by its creation.
I explain how this works in my new book A Radically Beneficial World: Automation, Technology and Creating Jobs for All.

A BRIEF AND UNTECHNICAL STATEMENT OF THE REFORMED FAITH
By Benjamin B. Warfield (Selected Shorter Writings, Vol.1, pp.407-410)
1. I believe that my one aim in life and death should be to glorify God and enjoy him forever; and that God teaches me how to glorify him in his holy Word, that is, the Bible, which he has given by the infallible inspiration of his Holy Spirit in order that I may certainly know what I am to believe concerning him and what duty he requires of me.
2. I believe that God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal and incomparable in all that he is; one God but three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, my Creator, my Redeemer, and my Sanctifier; in whose power and wisdom, righteousness, goodness and truth I may safely put my trust.
3. I believe that the heavens and the earth, and all that in them is, are the work of God’s hands; and that all that he has made he directs and governs in all their actions; so that they fulfill the end for which they were created, and I who trust in him shall not be put to shame but may rest securely in the protection of his almighty love.
4. I believe that God created man after his own image, in knowledge, righteousness and holiness, and entered into a covenant of life with him upon the sole condition of the obedience that was his due; so that it was by willfully sinning against God that man fell into the sin and misery in which I have been born.
5. I believe, that, being fallen in Adam, my first father, I am by nature a child of wrath, under the condemnation of God and corrupted in body and soul, prone to evil and liable to eternal death; from which dreadful state I cannot be delivered save through the unmerited grace of God my Savior.
6. I believe that God has not left the world to perish in its sin, but out of the great love wherewith he has loved it, has from all eternity graciously chosen unto himself a multitude which no man can number, to deliver them out of their sin and misery, and of them to build up again in the world his kingdom of righteousness; in which kingdom I may be assured I have my part, if I hold fast to Christ the Lord.
7. I believe that God has redeemed his people unto himself through Jesus Christ our Lord; who, though he was and ever continues to be the eternal Son of God, yet was born of a woman, born under the law, that he might redeem them that are under the law: I believe that he bore the penalty due to my sins in his own body on the tree, and fulfilled in his own person the obedience I owe to the righteousness of God, and now presents me to his Father as his purchased possession, to the praise of the glory of his grace forever; wherefore renouncing all merit of my own, I put all my trust only in the blood and righteousness of Jesus Christ my redeemer.
8. I believe that Jesus Christ my redeemer, who died for my offences was raised again for my justification, and ascended into the heavens, where he sits at the right hand of the Father Almighty, continually making intercession for his people, and governing the whole world as head over all things for his Church; so that I need fear no evil and may surely know that nothing can snatch me out of his hands and nothing can separate me from his love.
9. I believe that the redemption wrought by the Lord Jesus Christ is effectually applied to all his people by the Holy Spirit, who works faith in me and thereby unites me to Christ, renews me in the whole man after the image of God, and enables me more and more to die unto sin and to live unto righteousness; until, this gracious work having been completed in me, I shall be received into glory; in which great hope abiding, I must ever strive to perfect holiness in the fear of God.
10. I believe that God requires of me, under the gospel, first of all, that, out of a true sense of my sin and misery and apprehension of his mercy in Christ, I should turn with grief and hatred away from sin and receive and rest upon Jesus Christ alone for salvation; that, so being united to him, I may receive pardon for my sins and be accepted as righteous in God’s sight only for the righteousness of Christ imputed to me and received by faith alone; and thus and thus only do I believe I may be received into the number and have a right to all the privileges of the sons of God.
11. I believe that, having been pardoned and accepted for Christ’s sake, it is further required of me that I walk in the Spirit whom he has purchased for me, and by whom love is shed abroad in my heart; fulfilling the obedience I owe to Christ my King; faithfully performing all the duties laid upon me by the holy law of God my heavenly Father; and ever reflecting in my life and conduct, the perfect example that has been set me by Christ Jesus my Leader, who has died for me and granted to me his Holy Spirit just that I may do the good works which God has afore prepared that I should walk in them.
12. I believe that God has established his Church in the world and endowed it with the ministry of the Word and the holy ordinances of Baptism, the Lord’s Supper and Prayer; in order that through these as means, the riches of his grace in the gospel may be made known to the world, and, by the blessing of Christ and the working of his Spirit in them that by faith receive them, the benefits of redemption may be communicated to his people; wherefore also it is required of me that I attend on these means of grace with diligence, preparation, and prayer, so that through them I may be instructed and strengthened in faith, and in holiness of life and in love; and that I use my best endeavors to carry this gospel and convey these means of grace to the whole world.
13. I believe that as Jesus Christ has once come in grace, so also is he to come a second time in glory, to judge the world in righteousness and assign to each his eternal award; and I believe that if I die in Christ, my soul shall be at death made perfect in holiness and go home to the Lord; and when he shall return in his majesty I shall be raised in glory and made perfectly blessed in the full enjoyment of God to all eternity: encouraged by which blessed hope it is required of me willingly to take my part in suffering hardship here as a good soldier of Christ Jesus, being assured that if I die with him I shall also live with him, if I endure, I shall also reign with him.
And to Him, my Redeemer, with the Father, and the Holy Spirit, Three Persons, one God, be glory forever, world without end, Amen, and Amen.
I wish all of my loyal readers be protected from the rage that has gripped my mind and soul as a result of discovering the similarities in America and Christianities moral and theological decline. For me there is no other definition of salvation than the Reformed definition Holy Scripture clearly elucidates. This is my conclusion after years of studious reading and prayer, that only the Lord God can change a sinful person, and I will wait for that day with perseverance and faith. None other than the Holy Lord of Glory can soften this raging hatred I have carried these many years, for it stands without defense that humanity is most certainly the scourge of the earth, and the International Investment Banking Cartel are the living proof.
May you all have a safe and peaceful CHRISTMAS!

By Tyler Durden
Last week, Donald Trump was delighted to learn that Russian President Vladimir Putin is apparently a fan.
Speaking to reporters after his annual press conference, Putin called trump “a talented man” before saying he’s the “absolute leader” of the US presidential race. Here’s the clip:
Now obviously, saying Trump is “an absolute leader in the presidential race” is something far different from saying he is an “absolute leader” (one is comment on the polls while the other is a character assessment), the brazen GOP frontrunner didn’t let the PR opportunity go to waste. He promptly called Putin’s apparent praise “a great honor” and told a crowd of supporters over the weekend that it’s not “such a bad thing” that the Russian leader is fond of an American politician.
Subsequently, Trump defended Putin’s record when it comes to “disappearing” journalists. “As far as the reporters are concerned, obviously I don’t want that to happen, I think it’s horrible,” Trump told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. “But, in all fairness to Putin, you’re saying he killed people, I haven’t seen that. I don’t know that he has. Have you been able to prove that?”
Actually, he is right, although it’s safe to say that Russia’s record is less than exemplary when it comes to press freedom…
That said, for any journalists who plan to stay alive even if Trump somehow manages to take the White House next year, the billionaire apparently doesn’t plan to kill any members of the press.
“These people, I hate some of these people,” he said, pointing to the press row at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan before assuring the crowd that “I would never kill them.”
“I would never kill them. But some of them are such lying, disgusting people,” he continues.
At this, the crowd erupted in cheers.
And speaking of “disgusting,” Trump didn’t like Hillary Clinton’s bathroom break during the third Democratic debate. “I know where she went. It’s disgusting. I don’t want to talk about it. It’s disgusting,” he said, commenting on the former First Lady’s late return from a commercial break. “She was favored to win and she got schlonged,” he added, mocking Clinton for losing the primary to Obama in 2008. “She lost. I mean, she lost,” he added, in case anyone wasn’t familiar with what it means to be “schlonged.”
There are plenty of Americans worried about losing their Second Amendment rights to Obama. Should those same voters worry about losing their First Amendment rights under Trump?
Or does Trump merely relish trolling the liberal media at its own game? You decide.
By now, everyone should be aware that TRUMP is a certified narricisitic, egomaniac, authoritarian – with more balls than brains. Sure he is smart, and knows exactly what to say to get your support. THAT’S WHY HE HAS BEEN PUT IN THE LINE-UP. He has all the skills needed to keep the sheep feeding at the trough of poison lies and broken promises. After all these years of lies, why do you keep asking for more? Take this house of liars down and build a real constitutional government for the real people.
You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Judge Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher

Written by Paul Rosenberg
OUR FUTURE HAS BEEN COMMANDEERED
Worse, we’re living inside of a surveillance state that is morphing into
something truly, truly evil.
I’m here to tell you that nearly all of this is artificial. We have more than enough technology to be living among the stars, to fill every hungry mouth on the planet, and to meet nearly every human need.
We already know how to do all those things… and this fact is demonstrably true.
And yet we sit immersed in fear, confusion, privation, and even hate. And why? Mainly because the elites of our civilization have demanded that we sacrifice our wills to theirs, and because most of us have silently complied.
We have space-age knowledge, yet we remain firmly under the domination of bronze-age rulership. And since these rulers would be wiped away by the spread of space-age technologies, they have carefully contained them.
“Thou Mayest Not Go There”
As I write this, we are at the end of the year 2015. Back in 1968 – almost two generations ago – men traveled to the moon. The next year, they landed there. This was well before microwaves, cell phones, and the Internet. It was even before personal calculators. But right there, space travel was stopped in its tracks. In fact, it was first pulled back and then stopped. No human has left Earth’s gravity since 1972.
Have we more technology than we did in 1968 – 47 years ago – or have we less?
Obviously we have far more and far better, but space technology has been commandeered and space has been locked shut. Our future has simply been cut off. Does any reasonable person believe that it would be harder to go to space now than it was before Kevlar and fiber optics and computers that didn’t fill an entire room?
And let’s be honest about this: That future was eliminated by the lords of our world because it would ruin their game. Letting the cows out of the barn would severely undercut their interests.
Many of you should be reading my posts as you sail among the stars, or at least among planets, moons, and asteroid belts. We have the technology… and we’ve have had it since the late 1960s. That’s not even debatable.
Requiem for the Internet
Before the Internet, nearly all information was forced to move through well controlled conduits. Exceptions to that rule were mainly print newsletters. But then came the Internet, which allowed anyone to speak to everyone; it allowed information to move from individual to individual with no gatekeeper. That was a very large and very significant change.
To be honest about it, we got the Internet mainly because the elites screwed up. They could have bottled it up, but they simply failed. (They are not smarter than we are.) Sure, other people would have written an Internet-type of communications protocol soon enough, but that kind of slow rollout would have given the bosses time to limit the technology and keep some bottlenecks in place.
Now, after a couple of decades, the Internet has been substantially retaken by the elites. Already, nearly everything is being funneled into Google and Facebook, both of whom have whored themselves out to the rulers. (See this, for example.) It will probably be a matter of a few years until unapproved content starts to be pushed out. Matt Drudge, for example, claimed recently that a Supreme Court justice told him so personally.
Putting information back into controlled channels is massively in the interest of the rulers, and there is no one to oppose them. Their populations are among the most compliant in all of human history.
On top of that, the Internet is already a surveillance system, with the aforesaid Google and Facebook being major components of it. Since Snowden, that’s not debatable either.
Worse, that surveillance system (that is, the Internet) is quickly being turned into the most effective manipulation system in all of human history. In other words, the Internet has been more than commandeered; it has been weaponized and turned against its users.
I could go on, but I won’t: More facts won’t change more minds. Opposition to these truths is psychological, not intellectual.
It’s All About Will
We can have our future back, but only if we stop laying our minds and wills at the feet of rulers… rulers whom most of us acknowledge to be liars and thieves, by the way.
So long as we reflexively obey the people who stole our future, they will never, ever give it back. And why should they? That future isn’t in their interests, and so long as everyone obeys them, why should they change?
In the end, it comes down to the issue of will: Do we believe that we have a right to live and act according to our own minds? Or do we simply evade such considerations?
The usual unexamined slogans (“We have to work through our democratic institutions.”) merely lock us into place as will-less cogs in a hierarchy that hasn’t changed in any of our lifetimes. Truthfully, it’s just obscured slavery: “Pay attention to the flashing lights and keep doing as we say.”
There are answers to all our problems, and we are more than capable of reclaiming our future. But that will never happen if we keep surrendering our wills to the same elites who took it from us.

Giving up one’s free time to study an infuriating subject so they can educate uninterested people is not exactly fun, but not participating will only weaken our country until there is nothing left to protect. I’m sure Mr. Rosenberg would agree and that is why we keep trying to wake up those who are sleep-walking through life. Not everyone has to devote the amount of time we do to this endeavor in order to be helpful, but surely everyone could pass information on to their friends and family,,,, so what’s stopping you? Are you afraid to offend someone? Hell, that’s the easy part of this obligation. And as long as you live in this country, and remain healthy and capable of communicating, it is your obligation to help preserve what’s left of our freedom. Because, if you do not help, you will lose everything you have and want to protect. Make no mistake folks, we are in a war with our own government and their masters, which will conclude in one of us being executed, and I’m damn sure not going to help them succeed by sitting on my ass and watching football. Everyone reading this can go to this site ( www.annavonreitz.com ) and learn everything they need to know about how and why America was captured and bled to death. Do it now, before it’s too late, so we can regain our self respect among the other Nation’s. You will also learn HOW and WHAT to do to help her save YOUR family!

You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Judge Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher
December 22nd, 2015 by olddog
For those just now waking up—- the Federal Reserve is not and has never been any part of our government. It is a mostly-foreign private association of banks operating as a criminal cartel on our shores. The Fed was invited here by other criminals impersonating our lawful Congress of the United States more than a century ago. The details of how this happened are presented in our sworn and published affidavit of probable cause, “You Know Something Is Wrong When….An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” and The Creature from Jekyll Island.
Second, at the end of the Second World War the Allies set up the “Global Debt Facility” as a depository with the intention — at least on paper — of using this international collateral for the benefit of Mankind.
So much for good intentions and public relations. Of course, much more sinister and self-interested agendas were in play—one of which was the rape and pillaging of America and the dispossession of its people via fraud, misrepresentation, and deceit.
Attached you will find nine (9) important documents that establish at least one (1) of the several versions of the Minesfield Crossover Agreements alleged to exist and referenced by Ms. Hudes, and also a couple pages from the Secret Book of Redemption. This extraordinary work explains how the Federal Reserve self-sabotaged its fiduciary responsibilities by introducing deliberate errors in the issuance of bonds and other documents so as to provide a predetermined excuse for not paying legitimate debts when they came due.
The Federal Reserve has also been instrumental in the Federal Reserve Note Scam and the enslavement of Americans mischaracterized as British Crown subjects.
A “Federal Reserve Note” like any “note” is a Promise to Pay—-like a bond is also a promise to pay at a later date. This particular “note” was given a very special, very beneficial backing— members of Congress acting in treasonous self-interest established a fixed “dollar for dollar” exchange rate between the “Federal Reserve Note” and our actual United States Dollar.
As a result, the Federal Reserve Banks were enabled to pawn off paper I.O.U.s in exchange for our actual gold and silver—-and also for our unpaid labor and other resources.
To avoid paying these I.O.U.s they simply collapsed the old “Federal Reserve System, Inc.” and entered it into bankruptcy. All our gold and silver was stolen and transported overseas in “equitable exchange” for worthless paper, and then even the debt represented by those I.O.U.s was discharged in bankruptcy—which should have never been allowed.
That answers the question of where all the gold in Fort Knox went.
Bill Clinton had the last of our reserves shipped out during his final years in office. He also pretended to have the authority to sell off our homes, businesses, roads, bridges, and other public infrastructure to foreign investors. Literally billions of people globally plus 390 million Americans have been victimized and defrauded. Governments all over the world are looking to us to make good on all the private Federal Reserve Notes and all the bogus sales of our property that these con men pretending to represent us have sold to investors in our names. Literally.
That is who and what the Federal Reserve is—- an international crime syndicate brought here and allowed to run rampant by the British Monarch who is supposed to be our Trustee on the Highs Seas and Inland Waterways, expedited by our own employees and by other people obligated to serve us in Good Faith by every treaty, Constitution, Public Law and trust obligation there is.
The primary beneficiaries of all this criminality are in order of importance: the Pope, the Queen, Jacob Rothschild, and several corporations including SERCO.
The Pope agreed to forgive all “debts” arising from these false claims and agreed to return all American assets to the Americans they belong to. He has also taken other very important steps toward remedy.
The Queen is not eager to give up her ill-gotten gains and neither is Jacob Rothschild, who is still smirking and bobbing, confident that he and his criminal empire will escape the wrath of the world’s people and trick them yet again.
There’s only one big stumbling block. They can pay off any country on Earth except one. They can’t possibly pay back the Americans, who have been the biggest victims.
It simply can’t be done.
There isn’t enough gold or silver to pay back what they owe us already.
That’s why from their perspective, they have to do one of two things—- (1) work a final fraud scheme to gain immunity from prosecution and release from their debt to us; or, (2) kill off the Americans to reduce the amount of debt they owe and collect on the million dollar life insurance policies they’ve placed on each one of us. WW3 anyone?
But now they have just realized something rather crucial.
As long as there is one American left alive anywhere on the planet, that American can claim back absolutely everything owed to all Americans since this fraud scheme began— and tracking down and murdering every American worldwide doesn’t seem like a viable option.
They have always counted on their control of the “US Congress” as their final playing card. They haven’t counted on us pointing out that the “US Congress” isn’t our Congress.
Karen Hudes thought she had everything nicely done up in time for Christmas. She had cronies all lined up to accept our share of the gold from the Global Debt Facility. Once they accepted the gold— “in our behalf”—and accepted all the immunities and guarantees and releases hidden in the fine print, her bosses would be off the hook, free and clear, able to claim immunity and keep all our assets, too.
Luckily for the “free sovereign and independent people of the United States” the federal toadies don’t represent us in this matter and have no basis to claim that they do.
As a Trustee, Karen Hudes and the other 188 Trustees of the Global Debt Facility are in a bind. The Americans are owed their share of the gold in the Global Debt Facility. The Federal toadies have no basis to accept it for us. It isn’t in our interest to accept any fine print that gives the Queen and Rothschild and their cronies a “Home Free and Keep Our Assets” card.
And we are in no mood for Trojan Horses.
Those who have been listening to the exchanges between Karen Hudes and I have repeatedly heard her warnings about “World War III” — any such thing would be precipitated by the efforts of the criminals to assert false claims against us and our assets and their refusal to pay their own debts.
By now the entire world knows that the Americans have been the innocent victims of fiduciary trust fraud on an unimaginable scale, and millions of Americans know it, too. The Russians and Chinese know who to blame. If the Russians and Chinese want gold, they aren’t coming after us. Our pockets have been picked clean. Nobody is going to blame us for the lies of the Federal United States. It’s all too apparent who the criminals have been and it is also too apparent that the American people have suffered along with the rest of the world.
Ms. Hudes would have the world believe that I am working for some Evil Network of Global Control and am single-handedly holding up the Global Reset and preventing poor people all over the world from receiving their fair share of the Global Debt Facility gold. I say that Ms. Hudes is accusing me of what she is doing herself. She is trying to gain immunity for her bosses—some way that they can wash their hands and avoid being responsible for their insurmountable debts to us and the rest of humanity. It is their refusal to come clean that is holding up distribution of Global Debt Facility assets.
They, not we, are keeping the gold hostage, trying to use it as leverage for themselves, and trying to trick us all into accepting a bowl of porridge for our birthright.
Under their current plan the same corrupt politicians retain control and all the benefit of the gold goes to prop up national currencies which are nothing but a breeding ground for manipulation, fraud, and profit for the usual suspects.
The only benefit to the people Ms. Hudes can suggest is that they will no longer have to pay interest to the banks on the money their governments mint or print. It will mean the end of usury she says.
Pray tell, why should anyone have to pay interest to the banks in the first place?
Nobody’s currency has been backed by the banks. It has all been backed by the labor of the people and the value of their country’s land, commodity, and product assets. The interest we’ve all paid to the Federal Reserve –for example– was nothing but another gratuitous fraud scheme, a charge for a non-existent service.
So we just mindlessly donate the gold from the Global Debt Facility to the same criminals who have enslaved and defrauded us and in exchange we get what? The cessation of yet another fraudulent claim?
How does that benefit any poor people? Instead, it benefits the banks. They realize that we are looking at them and questioning their existence and examining their records and their operations and it is just a matter of time before someone says, “Why are we paying interest for a non-existent service?”
Another recurring theme in the dialogue is that I and by implication, “the Americans”, are being selfish and unreasonable, and that’s why everything is held up. The inference is that I am keeping all this gold from benefiting the poor people of the world and standing in the way of President Marco’s Prayer— but the poor people aren’t slated to get any benefit anyway. The banks are just colluding to pay the banks again and making sure that everyone has new poker chips to play in another round of “Global Economy” still completely controlled and manipulated by the same Corrupt Old Bastards Club that brought us to this end.
How about a totally different result? Something that actually helps all the people of the world and permanently solves the problem of idolatry and dishonesty being enshrined at the heart of our economic system?
To the extent that we need a planetary-wide currency system to facilitate trade, this can be accomplished by a simple numeric accounting system. No banks are required. None at all. Just a user friendly accounting system similar to an ATM that accepts deposits, transfers, and withdrawals, a multi-tier computer system similar to the internet devoted to financial transactions, and geeks to troubleshoot.
To the extent that we need to provide for the basic needs of all people this can be accomplished by the same numeric system by providing basic living stipends sufficient to pay for food, water, housing, sanitation, transportation, education, and health care deposited into each individual account. Mankind can finally be set free from want and fear of want. No more starving children. No more charity drives. No more slavery. No more anxiety. No more reason for war and conflict.
Why is this possible? Because money is a symbol standing for the value of our labor and the Earth’s natural resources that we are all heir to. Labor–which includes our creativity and inventiveness–and natural resources, are the only sources of wealth on this planet. There is already more than enough value vested in our energy and the Earth’s resources to back every possible legitimate need anyone could ever have. There has never been any reason for people to suffer and go without basic needs.
To the extent that we need to provide for new investments, this can be accomplished by giving everyone their own investment account with an additional amount credited to it each year—and let people loan their investment money without interest to any worthy lawful endeavor they support.
We know that this is a difficult concept for people who have been trained to “work for money” to grasp, but money is an arbitrary product whether it is made from gold or plastic or glass, whether it is in the form of a coin or an accounting ledger. In the past we’ve made money of different kinds and let these compete like different varieties of chocolate bars— the Dollar versus the Ruble versus the Yen— it is time to move beyond that.
People have been wrongly taught to put their faith in money and its external forms, to idolize it as a false god, when in fact, in an honest monetary system, its a hum-drum daily tool.
Those who control the production of money and who determine its accounting are all —-as the present circumstance proves and as 8000 years of history provides—- universally and inexorably corrupted by it and reduced to being dishonest profit-mongering white collar thieves.
Has the lesson been learned yet? Have we all suffered long enough? Senselessly enough? Is it time to do away with banking— and go to an Open Account System?
There is no reason for any child growing up in any place on this planet to go without food, water, shelter, and anything else that they need. Nor is there any reason for any retiree to go without a solid level of security, comfort, and enjoyment in their old age. The senseless greed of small-minded and smaller-hearted men has perpetuated the Myth of Scarcity in the midst of plenty–and it is nothing but a self-serving blasphemy against Nature and God.
There is also no reason for our money to be outside our local control. No reason for gleaming bank towers overwhelming the skylines of our cities. No reason for the Christine LaGardes of this world waving their hands and blankly discussing how they are going to seize the retirement accounts of senior citizens. No reason for Paul Ryan mindlessly grinning like a Halloween pumpkin as he discusses all the “necessary cuts” to Medicare and other services that people have already paid for umpteen times over. There is no “National Debt”. It’s all hokum, Smoke and mirrors promoted by thieves. We have only believed in “money” because we have been kept ignorant and deprived of this critical tool by force, and we now fully realize that this Ultimate Fraud has been served to us at the hands of vicious self-serving criminals who profit by it.
There must be a great cleansing of our minds and our hearts, a sucking in of new vision like a rush of air to our lungs. Any hope that the bankers and politicians have had that this would be business as usual —just a wrap up song and dance to finalize the Greatest Fraud in History— will be sadly disappointed. The Americans are awake— fully awake. The doors have been opened that no man can shut.
We are going to demand our share of the Global Debt Facility gold free and clear of any strings. We are going to liquidate the corporations that have acted as crime syndicates on our shores. We are going to lead a profound and permanent reform of the world monetary system. We will be cleaning out vacated public offices from sea to shining sea. We will be reforming and replacing the courts. We will be amending and updating The Constitution and putting an end to any outdated and prejudicial association with Great Britain allowing it to meddle in our affairs. If we get any offer of violence whatsoever from those responsible for these crimes committed against us and the other innocent people of the world, we will join with the Chinese and the Russians and everyone else who has been defrauded by these thugs and we will make sure that the promoters of these crimes never have the opportunity to harm anyone again.
Let that be a promise heard round the world and especially in Washington, DC.
Documents mentioned will be added to this article later tonight.

December 21, 2015
Fair Weather Friends
As a member of the National Rifle Association, I regularly receive its magazine, The American Rifleman. In the December 2015 issue appears an editorial by Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s Executive Vice President, entitled “Obama, Hillary Embrace Gun Confiscation”. Although this observation of present political facts should hardly surprise anyone, it rightly vexes Mr. LaPierre, because of the dark history of “gun control” in Britain and especially in Australia—where confiscation went forward (according to him) “[t]o assuage an insane notion of collective guilt to impose a national gun ban”, and “will never end until the last firearm is removed from private hands”.
Now, most astute observers understand that, although the systematic disarming of Britons and Australians by their own rogue public officials over the years “will never end until the last firearm is removed from private hands”, it never has had anything, and today has nothing, to do with psychobabble about “collective guilt”, or even some “insane notion”, but instead was and is the product of a coldly calculated policy contrived by political elitists who were, and remain, intent upon creating in those benighted nations the conditions necessary for the imposition and perpetuation of police states.
These events have been, in no small measure, “models” or “test beds” for the same tactics to be employed against the United States, for the same ultimate purpose. So I wonder whether Mr. LaPierre really imagines that, as leading political elitists in this country, Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton espouse confiscation of Americans’ firearms simply because they supposedly suffer from “collective guilt”, or are the victims of “insane notion[s]”.
After all, America’s rogue public officials have generally proven themselves to be ruthless political racketeers whose every exercise of real or imaginary power demonstrates that a police state in this country appeals to them far more than what the Second Amendment calls “a free State”. Arguably, these miscreants might be found guilty of numerous crimes, or perhaps even be diagnosed as “insane” in some sense—all too many political figures in high offices in the Western World today being at least subject to suspicion as narcissistic psychopaths. Yet there is method in what might be deemed their madness with respect to “gun control”. And it is their method which must be opposed, whether they are cunning criminals who deserve condign punishment, or merely pitiable wretches who suffer from some mental disease or defect.
Which brings me to my dissatisfaction with Mr. LaPierre’s editorial. He frets that Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton “would alter the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court with the goal of overturning the landmark decisions that have recognized the sanctity of the Second Amendment in guaranteeing our right to keep and bear arms.” (Here, he refers to the Court’s recent Heller and MacDonald decisions.) But if those decisions had ruled against the construction of the Second Amendment which Mr. LaPierre favors (as, by merely one vote among the Justices, they almost did), would he now be so enthusiastic about preserving them? Or would he, precisely in the fashion of Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton (and many others of their political coloration), be in favor of “alter[ing] the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court with the goal of overturning th[os]e * * * decisions”? The answer to that question is obvious.
Unfortunately, Mr. LaPierre seems to embrace the fallacy known as “judicial supremacy”: the notion that the Constitution means whatever some decision of the Supreme Court says that it means. In practice, this reduces to the perverse conclusion that the Constitution must be taken to mean whatever the fifth fool who creates a majority among the Justices happens to believe at the time, no matter how obviously wrong that belief may be. So America is controlled by “a government of men”, all too fallible and corruptible, not “a government of laws” the meanings of which are capable of objective determination.
The truth is, however, that a decision of the Supreme Court does not determine whether the Constitution means this or that. Rather, the Constitution determines whether a decision of the Supreme Court in favor of this or that is correct or incorrect. We know that this must be the true rule of constitutional construction, because—by their own admissions in cases such as Payne v. Tennessee, 501 U.S. 808, 828-830 & note 1 (1991)—the Justices have been wrong about the Constitution in the past, time and again, and therefore can and surely will be wrong in the future. Today they may hand down decisions such as Heller and MacDonald, which equivocally limit certain aspects of “gun control”; and tomorrow they may concoct some hideous decisions reversing Heller and MacDonald in favor of “gun control”. So as an institution the Court is a weak reed on which to lean if the goal is to enforce the Constitution, as opposed to some Justices’ idiosyncratic—perhaps idiotic—musings about the Constitution.
To his credit, Mr. LaPierre does realize that “judicial supremacy” poses a practical political problem: namely, who are the Justices to be? The Supreme Court is not a permanent group of wise men and women who unerringly issue opinions in perfect conformity with the Constitution as Mr. LaPierre understands (or perhaps misunderstands) it. The Court’s composition changes over time. So the only way to ensure that his interpretation of the Second Amendment prevails is continually to “pack” the Court with new Justices in sympathy with that interpretation. But to “pack” the Court requires control of the White House and the Senate, the joint efforts of which determine the Court’s composition. So Mr. LaPierre calls upon the NRA’s members to “organize as never before and stand united in voting to save the Second Amendment in November 2016”.
The problem is that America cannot rely on elected politicians to enforce the Constitution (even if the elections are actually honest). After all, since the 1930s who has enacted the various “gun-control” statutes which Mr. LaPierre hopes the Supreme Court will eventually strike down as “infringe[ments]” of “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms”, if not Members of Congress in league with various Presidents? If these people could have been, or their successors could now be, trusted to defend what Mr. LaPierre calls “the sanctity of the Second Amendment”, why would anyone be concerned with the present or the future composition of the Supreme Court? There would be no issues of “gun control” to come before the Court. And if these people cannot be trusted with the defense of the Second Amendment today or tomorrow—just as History proves that their predecessors could not be trusted in yesteryears—then how can they be trusted to appoint Justices to the Supreme Court who will defend that Amendment any more rigorously than they themselves have failed to defend it?
The undeniable political fact is that Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court are unstable and untrustworthy institutions which need to be closely supervised and controlled at all times, especially between elections. The very existence of the Constitution—replete with “checks and balances” as it is—proves as much. Moreover, the existence of the Second Amendment—or any other provision of the Constitution—by itself guarantees nothing.
The Constitution is not self-interpreting and self-executing. Its “checks and balances” must be understood, and then put into operation—religiously, rigorously, even ruthlessly. And for that purpose WE THE PEOPLE cannot rely solely upon their ostensible “representatives” in any branch of government. For those “representatives”—whether through ignorance, indolence, insouciance, self-interest, or criminal inclinations—may turn out to be the sources of the problem. To defend the Constitution, WE THE PEOPLE must depend upon themselves. They are the authors of the Constitution. As its authors, they are its final interpreters. And to ensure that their interpretations are taken seriously by public officials, they must be its ultimate enforcers. But how are WE THE PEOPLE to accomplish this task?
To answer this question requires no more than to read the Constitution. The only stable and trustworthy establishments the Constitution incorporates within its federal system are “the Militia of the several States”. They are stable and trustworthy because they are always composed of the sovereigns themselves, WE THE PEOPLE, not merely some ever-mutating gaggle of possibly incompetent or disloyal “representatives”. If THE PEOPLE themselves cannot be trusted to exercise their own sovereignty in their own interest, who can be? Certainly no one else in what the Second Amendment calls “a free State”—that is, a polity based upon popular self-government. In the final analysis, in “a free State” THE PEOPLE can depend upon no one other than themselves to maintain their freedom.
That is why the Second Amendment itself declares that “well regulated Militia” are “necessary to the security of a free State”. Not the Supreme Court—not Congress—not the President—not the NRA and all of its efforts in lobbying, litigation, electioneering, and public education—not isolated individuals trying to exercise the so-called “individual right to keep and bear arms”—not even those private groups which ignorantly style themselves “militia”. No, not any one of these alone, or any combination of a few of them, or even all of them together, but instead “well regulated Militia” defined (as Virginia’s Declaration of Rights so accurately defined them in 1776) as “composed of the body of the people, trained to arms”. Not just some of “the people”—but “the body of the people”—“trained to arms” so as to secure the Power of the Sword in the hands of the sovereigns themselves.
If in the last several decades the NRA, and Americans in general, had payed due attention to all twenty-seven words in the Second Amendment—and particularly the first thirteen, not just the last fourteen on which the NRA dotes—patriots would not have to worry about the legalistic clap-trap some majority of Justices of the Supreme Court might spew out in favor of “gun control”. For there would be no “gun control” as we know it today. If the Militia existed as the Constitution requires that they exist, Mr. LaPierre would have no occasion to rail against such “gun-control” fanatics as one Fred Hiatt, of The Washington Post, whom Mr. LaPierre quotes as calling for a “cultural shift” which will lead to “[a] gun-free society’”. Of course, Mr. Hiatt does not actually propose “[a] gun-free society” in the fullest sense of those words. No, indeed. In the society he advocates, regular armed forces and para-militarized police departments and other “law-enforcement agencies”—all of them equivalent to large or small “standing armies”—would have guns, and plenty of them.
And out of the barrels of those guns these “standing armies” would impose, under the guise of “martial law” or other “emergency powers”, the policies that Mr. Hiatt and his co-thinkers want to see directed against common Americans—Americans who, because they were thoroughly disarmed, would be unable to mount any defense against those policies, not matter how tyrannical they might be. To be sure, Mr. Hiatt himself may be simply another muddled “liberal”, incapable of coherent thinking along constitutional lines, rather than a self-conscious totalitarian. But the “gun-free society” he advocates would, of necessity, be nothing less than the opposite of what the Second Amendment calls “a free State”: namely, “a[n un]free State”. (Perhaps for him, too, as well as for the vast majority of his countrymen.)
Mr. LaPierre no doubt understands, and rightly fears, this outcome. But, in opposing it, he fails to bring to bear against it the full armamentarium the Constitution provides. The last fourteen words of the Second Amendment are not enough. The first thirteen are, as they themselves attest, “necessary”. WE THE PEOPLE must exercise “the right * * * to keep and bear Arms”, without “infringe[ment]”, through “well regulated Militia”—and not just to resist “martial law”, “emergency powers”, and other manifestations of usurpation and tyranny; but also to do everything else that “well regulated Militia” could do, and would do, and must do today that would have nothing to do with resisting usurpation and tyranny, but everything to do with providing “the security of a free State” from other, perhaps more immediate, dangers.
I have written extensively about this subject in many of my columns for NewsWithViews, and in books such as The Sword and Sovereignty, Thirteen Words, Three Rights, and By Tyranny Out of Necessity: The Bastardy of “Martial Law”. Yet tireless repetition of this message appears to be obligatory upon me in particular, as vanishingly few people seem to be paying any attention—not so much to me, but to the Constitution. As an NRA firearms instructor, I am well aware from my training that no amount of repetition of the NRA’s three basic rules of firearms safety—to wit, “always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction”, “always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot”, and “always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use it”—can ever be excessive. How much more so for the most important teaching of the Constitution: to wit, that “[a] well regulated Militia” is “necessary to the security of a free State”? Can any number of reiterations of this precept be too many? More importantly, can its implementation be left in abeyance?
The question I put to Mr. LaPierre, to the NRA in general, and to all of the rest of the self-styled advocates of the Second Amendment is: “When do you intend to take this admonition seriously?” When it is too late?
No one can doubt that the herd of “gun-control” fanatics stampeding throughout this country today poses a clear and present danger to “a free State”. But no less—and perhaps more—dangerous are the supposed champions of the Second Amendment for whom only its last fourteen words have any significance. The “gun-control” fanatics at least understand what is at stake. Their constant attacks on so-called “assault” firearms, “high-capacity” magazines, and the most effective types of ammunition prove that they want to make revitalization of the Militia impossible, under any circumstances, by denying Americans the ability to possess the very equipment which is peculiarly apt for Militia service.
The counter-arguments from defenders of the Second Amendment that this equipment may be useful for individuals’ self-defense against common criminals, or even against real domestic “terrorists”, although true in principle is largely beside the point in practice. For this equipment is not uniquely useful for those purposes, and in many instances would not be useful at all (as most individuals are unlikely to be out and about in society on a daily basis with AR-15 rifles slung on their shoulders.)
The real constitutional argument against contemporary “gun control” lies in the first thirteen words of the Second Amendment. Namely, that every American eligible for the Militia—which includes every able-bodied adult man and woman (other than conscientious objectors)—has a right, and more importantly a duty, to possess whatever firearms can serve any purpose in the Militia, under any circumstances in which the Militia might be called forth. Constitutional “gun control” requires the possession of firearms of every description by every American eligible for the Militia. (Not that every American would necessarily possess every type of firearm; but that no American would be denied a right to possess any type of firearm.) Every self-styled advocate of the Second Amendment who denies this, or who simply evades the matter entirely, turns other Americans away from the constitutional solution to “gun control”, and thereby actually aid and abets the proponents of “gun control”. It may be that these people are motivated by good, if misguided, intentions. But the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, all of them misguided. And this country is too far down that road already to tolerate further misdirection.

Conflict and unrest in America is hardly a new phenomenon. Put two human beings in a room and you have conflict and unrest due to competing interests, desires and wants. From the day the ink was dry on the Constitution and well before, conflicts, unrest and turmoil were raging. Even during the drafting of the Constitution, serious disagreement was in evidence.
In one of the first un-constitutional moves by a president, John Adams signed into law the Aliens and Sedition Act in 1798 in an attempt to suppress voters who voted in opposition to the Federalist Party. From the war of 1812, to the banking crisis under Andrew Jackson, to the Civil War, to the passing of the 16th Amendment and beyond, America has been and will continue to be in a state of crisis. That is the human condition. If it isn’t war, it is social unrest, racial tensions, labor disputes, or warring special interests looking to government to arbitrate their disputes.
For every era of unrest or crisis in the history of America, individuals have risen to meet the challenges of the times. Sometimes those individuals aided in the resolution of the crisis and sometimes they exacerbated the crisis, as Obama has done during his presidency.
Each individual that rises to the fore to become a leader of a small group, corporation, union, or even a country, comes with a wide possibility of character types, personas and experience. Political leaders tend to derive from those individuals already in political positions of power, such as previous presidents, governors, mayors, senators and congressmen and women. But on very rare occasions leaders will pop up out of nowhere from non-political pursuits.
One of the sad weaknesses of man is his desire to find and elect a leader that will lead that person personally out of a negative condition, or save him or her from a disaster. As America grew in population, the number of people within the population who possessed that weakness has grown, almost exponentially, aided and abetted by a government all too willing to provide the salvation, but at a price. The price was the person’s vote. The salvation came, unconstitutionally, out of the public treasury.
America now has more people looking for a leader (savior) to save them personally from the ravages of nature or man-made disasters (such as government tyranny, foreign threats, economic collapse, income in-equality, climate change, or the one-world-order) than ever before.
America was originally founded on the hardy, self-reliant, strong individual looking to themselves to solve their own problems because there was no government assistance available, as there shouldn’t have been. Since the time of FDR and thanks to FDR, people now look to government or government leaders to solve their personal problems. That includes individuals from both sides of the political spectrum expecting that the next president, senator, or congressman would listen to their plight and hand them a silver dollar, or go get the bad guys with a vengeance.
For many decades the American people have become more and more isolated from government and the government executive, legislative and judicial system, at every level. Government “of the people, by the people and for the people” has become abusive, tyrannical and corrupt. The “Consent of the Governed” has become virtually meaningless. The “System” is in control, not the people. (See: “The System _ Impenetrable, Inflexible and Un-Yielding”)
The people see the isolation and separation happening but don’t know how to fix it. Since the people are divided them selves and won’t come together in unity to fix the real problems, they look to their leaders to solve those problems even though those very same leaders are the leaders from which they feel isolated and whom they believe are hopelessly corrupt.
Along comes Trump. No matter what the reader thinks of Trump, positive or negative, he is colorful, brash, bold, forceful, larger than life and hugely financially successful. Yes, he repeats himself constantly, but Trump is his own man and he doesn’t care what other people think or say. He appears not to be one of those dreaded corrupt establishment politicians and he owes his soul to no one, so he says. He says things that resonate with those who feel isolated from government and want to see government returned to the true vision of the Founding Fathers, whatever their perception is of that vision. Who can blame them for seeing a “savior” in Trump?
To those individuals that resonate with his words, they don’t care that what Trump says may be impossible to implement. It just sounds good because of their anger and frustration at both parties who, from all appearances, collude with each other against American citizens.
But Trump is an enigma. He doesn’t fit the mold of the usual politician, much less the average American. The people like that. But Trump has a huge ego, nor would he be seeking the presidency if he didn’t have one. Is he a narcissist? There is no a doubt.
His ego and narcissism become manifest in a recent article written by Michael D’Antonio that appeared in the Los Angeles Times and re-printed in the Seattle Times entitled, “Understanding Donald Trump.” D’Antonio personally interviewed Trump for several hours.
Trump told D’Antonio in the interview that “I’m a big believer in natural ability. I’m convinced it is DNA, (blood line) not life’s experiences, that makes a successful man.” Trump’s second wife, Marla Maples, called Trump a king. She is reported to have said, “He’s a King. I mean truly. He is. He is a king. He really is ruler of the world, as he sees it.” (Ruler of the World? Really?)
In the article D’Antonio tells us that Trump’s mother was so enamored with royalty she spent hours watching the TV broadcast of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. Trump’s father raised the young Donald to become “a killer” and told Donald he was a King. Donald Trump truly believes he is royalty and entitled to king status. Trump’s sense of entitlement and royalty has been with him throughout his entire life, fostered, pampered and promoted by his parents. He even tried to date Princess Di (royalty) after her divorce but was rebuffed. We believe he was in between wives at the time.
His choice of women throughout his life has been to pick a mate with exceptional qualities in status, good looks and physical prowess, mostly from European stock. When he finally picked a mate and married her, he immediately started looking for another mate and his divorces came from his reckless infidelity. This is just another window into Trump’s soul and personality.
Nevertheless, whether king in his own mind or just a very successful business man, Trump is a man of his times, rising to meet the apparent challenges of the times in which he lives. It remains to be seen whether he is just power hungry or truly believes he can make a difference in America for purely altruistic reasons.
Perhaps in these troubled times of domestic and foreign crises, maybe America needs a king-like persona to solve the problems of these times. That is of course if he can convince a majority of the electorate in the general election that they want a king to preside over America at this time. After insulting half the population of the United States in one form or another with his seemingly un-controlled outbursts, his election to the presidency is in serious question. When the votes start trickling in from the early 2016 state primaries we will soon learn whether Trump can go the distance.
The fact is, Trump is a symptom of his time, not a king, much less a God. He is a mortal man subject to all the frailties and flaws of mortal man. If anyone with normal intellect has observed Trump for any length of time, his frailties and flaws are readily apparent. The question is, do these troubled times in America require a king to solve all the domestic and foreign problems we all face and will his king-like flaws get in the way of accomplishing what he seems to want for America? Remember. He is up against an “impenetrable, inflexible and un-yielding system” that won’t break easy, even under the strong personality of a Donald Trump!
But remember ladies and gentlemen. We have already tried a king in America. FDR acted like a king and FDR did more to change the character and the people of America from self-reliance, to socialist dependency than any other president before him. Will Trump’s king-like persona return America to self-reliance and the principles of liberty, or just make Americans more dependent on government? Or, is the whole subject of a Trump presidency moot because there is no way he can win the general election? We will know soon enough.

There is no greater danger to America than a manic authoritarian in the office of president, and OBUMA should have made that plain to every American by now. If Trump is given that office, he, being much smarter than OBUMA will lay total control over our lives’ like OBUMA only dreamed about. He does not have to take our weapons away, or our freedom to travel, or sign every trade agreement that comes along to make us wish for an early death. All he has to do is follow the banker’s orders at this point, and our lives and dreams will be as miserable as it gets. If anyone reading this thinks there is any chance of a President reversing the present decline of freedom in America, I pity you for being so ignorant. Freedom is dead! There is not enough unity between Americans to decide which way is up. We are only an inch away from wanting a civil war because we all hate each other and that is all it took to destroy the elusion we have all held on to. America has never been what we were taught as children, and still most of us cling to it like it’s free money. Trump will create an exodus out of America that will make the immigration pandemic look like a joke. Have you folks totally forgotten who owns everything,,,,? including trump! If you have even a modicum of hope for America, you are living in a dream world!

As a result of the manipulated Bankruptcy of the United States in ’33 – exposed by Rep Lewis McFadden and others in the Congressional Record – that precipitated President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s confiscation of the people’s gold and implementation of The New Deal – the following change in the “Law of the Land” occurred.
Excerpts from attorney Melvin Stamper’s book, Fruit from a Poisonous Tree. Comments by AntCorruptionSociety are in brackets.
Massive registration of property through United States agencies, including the States of the Union as instrumentalities of the federal government in bankruptcy, assured the United States and its officers and instrumentalities (the states) that they would become wealthy beyond their wildest expectations, as predicted by Colonel House. Edward Mandell House had this to say in a private meeting with Woodrow Wilson (President, 1913-1921). From the private papers of Woodrow Wilson:
“Very soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a National system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging.
[This is done when mothers fill out and submit a “Certificate of Live Birth”.]
By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer not being able to work and earn a living.
[This is why we “register” for a Social Security Number.]
They will be our Chattel and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading [Certificate of Live Birth] to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges. [Presumed consent] They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two would figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges.
This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor or to this fraud which we will call “Social Insurance.” Without realizing it, every American will insure us for any loss we may incur and in this manner; every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and, we will employ the high office of the President of our dummy corporation to foment this plot against America.” [The UNITED STATES is a for-profit corporation.]
In the 1950s, the Uniform Commercial Code was adopted in most of the States as a means of unifying the generally accepted procedures for handling the new legal system of dealing with commercial fictions as though they were real. Security instruments replaced substance as collateral for debts. Security instruments could be supported by presumptive adhesion contracts. Debt instruments with collateral and accommodating parties could be used instead of money. Money and the need for money was disappearing, and a uniform system of law had to be put in place to allow the courts to uphold the security instruments that depended on commercial fictions as a basis for compelling payment or performance. All this was accomplished by the mid-1960s.
The commercial code is merely a codification of accepted and required procedures which all people engaged in commercial activity must follow. The basic principles of commerce had been settled thousands of years ago, but were refined as commerce become more sophisticated over the years. In the 1900s, the age-old principles of commerce shifted from substance to form. Presumption became a major element of the law. Without giving a degree of force to legal presumption, the new direction in enforcing commercial claims could not be supported in Equity/Admiralty courts and had no chance in common law. If the claimants were required to produce their claims every time they tried to collect from the people, they would seldom be successful.
The principles articulated in the commercial code combine the methods of dealing with substantive commercial activity with presumptive commercial activity. These principles work as well for us as they do for the entrenched powers. The rules are neutral and respect neither side of a dispute, as they are ancient in origin.
The entrenched powers that engineered the scheme for the people to register their property and person with the United States and its instrumentalities gained control of the peoples’ property and right to property through registration and licensing. The United States became the trustee of the titles to everything. The definition of “property” is the interest one has in a thing. The thing is the principal. The property is the interest in the thing. Profits (interest) made from the property of another belong to the owner of the thing.
The International Bankers made profits by pledging as surety the registered property of the people in commercial markets, but the profits do not belong to the Bankers. The profits belong to the owners of the thing. That is always the people. The corporation government shows only ownership of paper – titles to things. The substance cannot appear in the fiction. Sometimes the fiction is manufactured to appear as substance, but fiction can never become substance; it is an illusion. This is why the proper spelling of your name in upper and lower case is never used in court documents.
The ALL CAPS spelling represents the legal fiction, which the government holds title to and jurisdiction over, as it is the creation of the government. The substance cannot appear in the fiction. What will happen when you appear and claim the name ascribed on the complaint? You and the fiction become one and the same; you have changed masks from a natural person to an artificial one.
The profits from all the registered property had to be put into trust for the benefit of the owners. If the profits were put into the general fund of the United States and not into separate trusts for the owners, the scheme would evidence fraud. The profits for each owner could not be co-mingled.
[The banksters cannot access our trust without our signatures as the beneficiaries, so they trick us into consenting by getting us to sign their documents.]
If the owner failed to use his available remedy (fictional credits held in a constructive trust account, fund, or financial ledger) to benefit from the profits, it would not be the fault of the government or their banking co-conspirators. If the owner failed to learn the law that would open the door to his remedy, it would not be the fault of the swindlers. The owner is responsible for learning the law so he understands that the profits from his property are available for him to discharge debts or charges brought against his legal fiction person by the United States or other commercial entities.

Shamefully, most readers will not recognize that this article is far and away the most powerful sermon since Jesus walked the earth. If the majority of Christians were as theologically astute as Chuck, the world would be a far better place than it ever has been. The real essence of Christianity has never been elucidated as clearly as what you are about to read.
By Chuck Baldwin
Adult choirs, children’s programs, teen choirs, orchestras, bands, Sunday School lessons, pageants, and sermons will all laud the birth of the Prince of Peace. They will hear messages about love and peace and brotherhood. They will raise their hands in “worship,” smile and laugh, shout “Amen,” and get warm and fuzzy feelings all over as they celebrate the day that the Prince of Peace was born.
No doubt, pastors all over America will quote Luke 2:13, 14. “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”
But as soon as the Christmas celebration passes, their vocalizations of peace and goodwill will be buried amidst a cacophony of hatred for their fellow man: specifically, for their fellowmen who call themselves Muslims. We might hear “Kill the infidels!” from the mouths of certain Islamic jihadists, but that same cry is heard by God from the hearts of, perhaps, millions of America’s Christians.
Currently, Donald Trump is riding a wave of bigotry and hatred against the Muslim people to a potential Republican nomination for President. I have no idea whether Trump hates Muslims or not, but there is no doubt that millions of Christians and “conservatives” have been whipped into a frenzy of anti-Muslim hatred by FOX News, pastors, and thousands of conservative Internet bloggers, writers, journalists, and radio talk show hosts. Trump’s anti-Muslim campaign rhetoric has harnessed that hatred into frontrunner status in the GOP presidential race. And Ted Cruz has done the same thing, which has vaulted him to the current runner-up position.
In the following video, we see Cruz walking out on a group of persecuted Middle Eastern Christians where he had been invited to speak. This meeting was all about showing solidarity for persecuted Christians. There is no way Cruz could not have understood the group he was speaking to. The meeting was not a political event. It was simply an event to demonstrate support for persecuted Christians–regardless of who was doing the persecuting.
But it didn’t take Ted Cruz long to turn his speech into a political stunt. He quickly became an apologist for Israel, which brought boos from the audience. What most of America’s Christians do not understand is that the government of Israel has committed more than its fair share of persecution against Christians. When Cruz heard the boos, he accused members of his audience of being consumed with hate and then said, “If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you,” and stormed off the stage.
Really, Ted? These were Christians who are being persecuted by Muslims and Jews. They were looking to a fellow Christian to encourage their hearts. Instead, you brazenly took the side of their persecutors.
Mr. Cruz, are you standing with Israel when it stoned Stephen to death in Acts 7? Are you standing with Israel when it beheaded James in Acts 12? Are you standing with Israel when it crucified the Lord Jesus Christ? If you would stand with Israel when it persecutes Christians today, then I guess you are.
See the video here:
Sen. Ted Cruz Booed Off Stage
Every day, my email inbox fills up with anti-Muslim hatred–and much of it from professing Christians. These are the same ones that will celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace next week.
As justification for their bigotry and hatred, Christians love to quote passages from the Koran that speak of jihad against “infidels.” But, it never ceases to amaze me that these same Christians seem to have never read the Jewish Talmud–or even the writings of many Christian leaders from years gone by.
For example, here are some excerpts from the Talmud:
“Since God already gave the Torah to the Jewish people on Mt. Sinai we no longer pay attention to heavenly voices. God must submit to the decisions of a majority vote of the rabbis.” (BT Bava Metzia 59b)
“All gentile women without exception are: ‘Niddah, Shifchah, Goyyah and Zonah’ (menstrual filth, slaves, heathens and prostitutes).” (BT Sanhedrin 81b – 82a)
“The best of the gentiles: kill him; the best of snakes: smash its skull; the best of women: is filled with witchcraft.” (BT Kiddushin 66c)
“Regarding bloodshed the following distinction applies: If a non-Jew killed another non-Jew, or a non-Jew killed a Jew, the killer is liable for execution; if a Jew killed a non-Jew, he is exempt from punishment.” (BT Sanhedrin 57a)
“Jews may use lies (‘subterfuges’) to circumvent a gentile.” (BT Baba Kamma 113a)
“On Passover Eve they hanged Jesus of Nazareth. And the herald went out before him for 40 days and proclaimed, Jesus of Nazareth is going to be stoned because he practiced sorcery, incited and led Israel astray. Whoever knows of an argument that may be proposed in his favor should come and present that argument on his behalf. But the judges did not find an argument in his favor, so they hanged him on Passover Eve…Did Jesus of Nazareth deserve that a search be made for an argument in his favor? Surely he incited others to idol worship.” (BT Sanhedrin 43a)
Celebrated ancient religion historian Peter Schafer, who is now the director of the Jewish Museum of Berlin, wrote this commentary on the Babylonian Talmud (BT) Grittin 57a, “…Jesus shares his place in the Netherworld (hell) with Titus and Balaam, the notorious arch enemies of the Jewish people. Whereas Titus is punished for the destruction of the Temple by being burned to ashes, reassembled, and burned over and over again, and whereas Balaam is castigated by sitting in hot semen, Jesus’ fate consists of sitting forever in boiling excrement.” (Peter Schäfer, “Jesus in the Talmud,” Princeton University Press, p. 13)
Amazingly, I don’t hear Christians screaming the accusation that “there is no such thing as a peaceful Jew,” based on the writings of the Talmud and its apologists. Yet, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently promised that Talmudic law is the official law of Israel.
Report: Netanyahu Promises Talmud Will Be Israeli Law
Make no mistake about it: the Talmud, NOT the Torah, is the Bible of the Zionists. The “Oral Law” of the Pharisees who crucified Christ formed the basis for the Talmud. This was exactly what Jesus was referring to when he scolded the Pharisees for placing their “traditions” ahead of the Law of Moses (the Torah). I propose that the Talmud is FAR WORSE than the Koran; and I believe I can prove it.
The Pharisees hated the Lord Jesus then, and their spiritual descendants, the Zionists, still hate Him today. Yet, there is not a peep from the Christian community at large about the threat posed to Christian America from Zionists.
But in reality, Zionists have done more to expunge America’s Christian heritage than perhaps any other single force. Islamic jihadists don’t even come close. For the most part, Zionists control America’s television news networks, America’s major newspapers, the Federal Reserve and most of America’s major banking interests–as well as America’s entertainment and educational institutions–and even our legal institutions. An argument can also be made that the extraordinary wealth of the Zionists has exerted a significant influence over America’s political institutions.
Yet, there is nary a peep from today’s Christians regarding the attack against America’s Christian heritage from Zionists. Neither is there any mention of Israel’s attack against the U.S.S. Liberty, which took the lives of dozens of American sailors and Marines. It’s as if it never happened. Imagine if that attack had come from a Muslim country.
I invite you to watch this video (caution, bad language is used) of an atheist Jew (yes, a sizeable percentage of Jews are atheists) who goes berserk with rage against a Christian man on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley. Had this man been a Muslim, this video would have gone viral as “proof” of how all Muslims hate Christians. But since the man is a Jew, you are probably seeing this video for the first time:
Jew Confronts “Dirty Goyim” Christian Man On University Campus
Does this young Jewish man represent all Jews? Of course not. No more than Islamist militants represent all Muslims.
In addition, Christians should do some careful research regarding what some of their own institutions have done and what some of their own renowned leaders have said. What follows is a summary of one Christian researcher, with my comments in brackets:
For over 300 years during the Dark Ages, between 10,000-100,000 [some say 1 million, but that is probably an exaggeration] people were savagely tortured and killed–and thousands more persecuted–by the Roman Catholic Church. But the Roman Catholic Church is not alone.
The Lutheran towns of Lubeck, Bremen, Hamburg, Luneburg, Stralsund, Rostock and Wismar all voted to hang Anabaptists and flog and banish Catholics and Zwinglians from their homelands.
Martin Luther said of Roman Catholic leaders, “If I had all the Franciscan friars in one house, I would set fire to it . . . To the fire with them!”
Luther taught that dissenters (those who disagreed with him) should be banished and said that “The peasants (involved in the Peasants’ War) would not listen; they would not let anyone tell them anything; their ears must be unbuttoned with bullets, till their heads jump off their shoulders. … On the obstinate, hardened, blinded peasants, let no one have mercy, but let everyone, as he is able, hew, stab, slay, lay about him as though among mad dogs, . . . . so that peace and safety may be maintained….” Note that he was speaking of German peasants.
Luther was even more vicious toward Jews. He said, “First to set fire to their synagogues or schools and to bury and cover with dirt whatever will not burn, so that no man will ever again see a stone or cinder of them. This is to be done in honour of our Lord and of Christendom, so that God might see that we are Christians, and do not condone or knowingly tolerate such public lying, cursing, and blaspheming of his Son and of his Christians….”
[Would anyone dare suggest that there is no such thing as a peace-loving Lutheran because of the words of Martin Luther?]
A man was arrested for writing on one of John Calvin’s tracts the words, “all rubbish,” and was put on the rack twice a day for a month. He was beheaded on July 26, 1547.
The Spanish Reformer Servetus had dared to criticize Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion and Calvin declared: “If he comes here and I have any authority, I will never let him leave the place alive.”
Servetus, an anti-Trinitarian, had disagreed with Calvin via correspondence and when he visited Geneva on August 13, 1553, he went to hear Calvin preach. Calvin saw him in church and had him arrested. Calvin drew up forty charges against him including Servetus’ opposition to infant baptism and his attack upon the preaching of Calvin. On August 20, 1553, Calvin wrote: “I hope that Servetus will be condemned to death” and in October the Geneva Council ordered that he be burned alive the next day.
“Heretics” were hanged then burned in Zurich, Basil, and Geneva for disagreeing with Calvin’s teachings. During the first five years of Calvin’s rule in the small town of Geneva, 13 people were hanged, 10 were decapitated, and 35 were burned to death. A citizen could go to prison for smiling during a baptismal service or sleeping during a church service. [I know a LOT of Christians who would be in jail right now, if that were still the case.]
[Would anyone dare suggest that there is no such thing as a peace-loving Presbyterian because of John Calvin’s statements?]
In England, Henry VIII was head of the Church of England (that Henry formed after his break from Rome) and doctrinal disagreements now became high treason to be punished by disembowelment while still alive, hanging, and quartering. In the end, even failing to denounce anyone else who criticized these things became treason.
Those who left England and Europe to find religious freedom were guilty of imposing their own convictions upon others, even non-believers! Virginia had established the Anglican Church (Church of England) and forbade Quakers and Baptists to assemble, and to “rub salt into open sores,” Virginia citizens were forced to pay the salaries of Anglican preachers.
The Puritans demanded freedom for themselves in England but in America they greatly restricted freedom of religion. They tried to outdo what they had endured. In Massachusetts and Virginia, Baptists and Quakers were often whipped, jailed, and had property confiscated. [By the way, these atrocities were the impetus for the First Amendment to our U.S. Constitution.]
[Would anyone dare suggest that there is no such thing as a peace-loving Episcopalian because of the actions of some Puritans?] [End of summary]
The incredible phenomenon of professing Christians torturing, jailing, and killing their fellow Christians is almost unknown by most Americans; but we all know how Muslims kill Muslims and non-Muslims and we are horrified as they behead their enemies. All right, we should be horrified and repulsed at such barbarity, but remember, professing Christians did the same and worse to their “enemies”, i.e., those who disagreed with them.
Jews, Muslims, Catholics, and Protestants all have a history of killing in the name of God. No group has a monopoly on hatred.
Furthermore, if one wants to start comparing savagery in the modern world, Islamic jihadists do not hold a candle to Mexican drug gangs. The numbers of people beheaded by Mexican drug gangs FAR EXCEEDS those by Islamic militants.
See this report:
The Street Gangs More Vicious Than ISIS
Donald Trump is absolutely correct when he points out the problem of an unsecured U.S. border. But why doesn’t he go on a mission to root out the Mexican drug gangs from America? There are FAR MORE of them in the United States than Islamic jihadists. FAR MORE. (Plus, he should mention that if the federal government stopped giving handouts to illegals, the flow of illegals into America would soon dry up.)
For one thing, one cannot capitalize politically upon religious bigotry when addressing Mexican drug gangs. For another thing, the motive of the gangs has nothing to do with religion: it is pure greed from (mostly) the sale of illegal drugs. And speaking of greed, NOTHING COMPARES to the international bankers in New York City and the politicians in Washington, D.C. NOTHING! In truth, those miscreants in Washington, D.C., and New York City pose a far greater risk to our liberties than Muslim terrorists or Mexican gangs. FAR GREATER!
I have documented several times in this column the fact that the Islamic terror groups ISIS, al Nusra, etc., were created by the United States, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Israel. Anyone could find this evidence with only a few hours research. For the most part, ISIS is comprised of Sunni Muslims from Saudi Arabia (America’s great “ally”). In addition, Israel is the number one purchaser of smuggled oil from ISIS. Turkey is the middleman, but Israel is far-and-away the primary purchaser. Do the research yourself, folks.
In truth, Sunni and Shia Muslims have been fighting each other for hundreds of years. And until the United States decided to inject itself directly into the conflict, it was almost exclusively a Muslim vs. Muslim issue. It was America’s wars of intervention that brought the Muslim conflict home to the United States.
It was the military force of the United States that replaced secular Muslim governments in Iran and Iraq with radical religious ones. And it is the United States (via ISIS) that is currently attempting to do the same thing in Syria.
President Assad has the support of most Christians in Syria. That is a FACT. So, how can Assad be this great monster and enemy of Christians when the Christian people that live there support him, fight for him, and pray for him?
I have Christians in America now writing me defending their hatred of Muslims by using verses of Scripture (taken out of context, of course). They are not even timid about their hatred. So, what’s the difference between a religious Muslim who hates America and a religious Christian who hates Iran and Syria?
Do Christians not remember the story of Jonah? The prophet Jonah was sent by God to the Assyrian capital of Nineveh. Jonah refused to go because he hated the Assyrians. Remember, the Assyrians had ruthlessly pillaged and plundered Israel. No doubt, Jonah had lost friends and loved ones to these atrocities. Yet, God sent him to Nineveh in order to give the Assyrians an opportunity to repent. After a submarine ride in a great fish, Jonah went to Nineveh and preached. And it was in Nineveh (located in what is now Iraq) where the greatest spiritual revival in human history took place. As a result, God spared the Assyrians from divine judgment for over 100 years.
If the story of Jonah teaches anything, it teaches God’s great love for ALL people and the responsibility of God’s men to rid hatred from their hearts and to be willing to take the message of God’s love to even those we consider our enemies.
I remind readers that ISIS no more represents a majority of the Muslim people than Bibi and his fellow Zionists represent a majority of the Jewish people or Barack Obama and the neocons represent a majority of the Christian people. These wicked leaders are manipulating the masses by fueling the flames of hatred and bigotry in our hearts to further their own selfish nefarious purposes.
I urge folks to watch this video of an elderly Muslim lady courageously scolding a truckload of ISIS fighters face-to-face. She told them in the name of Allah to STOP the violence they were perpetrating.
See the video here:
MUST WATCH : Wise Old Lady Stands Up Against ISIS!
Plus, if Christians want a verse of Scripture to condone hatred, the ONLY verse of Scripture I can find that places God’s hatred against individuals and not actions is Psalm 11:5. (Please spare me the other verses you want to send me. I’ve read them, and they are all talking about a person’s actions, NOT personal or religious bigotry.) “The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.” (KJV)
I am personally convinced this verse speaks of God’s divine retribution against the souls of the damned in everlasting judgment. However, if one wants to interpret that verse to the here-and-now, they need to be careful. Note God’s hatred for those “that love violence.”
I submit that many Christians have themselves become lovers of violence. Who are the ones that are singing John McCain’s chorus of “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran”? Christians. Who are the ones that vehemently rejected Ron Paul’s message of peace and goodwill in 2012? Christians. Who are the ones who enthusiastically support the neocon wars of aggression in the Middle East? Christians.
In truth, U.S. taxpayers have funded the killings of over 1.5 million people in the Middle East, the vast majority of whom are innocent civilians. How would we react if alien warplanes and drones killed hundreds of thousands–and even millions–of our mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, neighbors and friends here in America? Come on, think!
This report is not the only one where the truth about the casualties the U.S. has inflicted in the Middle East has been told–and what the neocon-controlled U.S. media will never tell us:
US Kills 1.5 Million In ‘War On Terror’ – Then Lies About ’30 Civilian Casualties’ In Russian Airstrikes
Again, do the research for yourself.
One West Point graduate and former U.S. Army officer is even more condemning in reporting the number of U.S. war victims. Joachim Hagopian claims that U.S. wars have killed over 30 million people since the end of World War II.
See his report here:
It’s Time To Stop “Supporting Our Troops”: Thirty Million People Killed By U.S. Since The End Of World War II
If even a fraction of his claim is accurate, that is a lot of blood on the hands of U.S. taxpayers. Remember that the next time you want to single out Muslims for God’s hatred upon those that “love violence.”
Donald Trump says he wants to close mosques, and Christians cheer. Really? The responsibility of the President is to faithfully execute the laws of the United States and to preserve, protect and defend the Supreme Law of the land: the U.S. Constitution. Freedom of religion is sacrosanct in our Constitution and no religious test regarding constitutional liberties can be allowed. We either have freedom of religion, speech, assembly, etc., for all, or we have it for none. Plus, it is a very small step from the government closing mosques to closing synagogues and churches, folks.
False religion is a curse from God upon the Church for abandoning truth. Therefore, the answer to America’s Muslim problem lies with the CHURCH, not unconstitutional discrimination by government against religion. Faith cannot be exported at the point of a gun. Christians, of all people, should understand that. Christian missionaries are evangelizing Muslim people in the very heart of Muslim countries today. I know a few of them personally. In fact, Christianity is growing faster in Middle Eastern countries than in the United States.
Christians need to remember that our federal government has ALREADY categorized Christian people as being “extremists,” “radicals,” “fringe,” etc. Do Christians really want to open the door for our federal government to start selectively outlawing religion? Talk about handing the hangman the rope; that’s it.
Instead of singling out people of one religion, Trump should have focused on his original idea of securing our borders from all illegal immigration and, as President, on faithfully enforcing the immigration laws already on the books–or even asking Congress to further restrict ALL immigration until as such time as we can get a secure handle on our immigration problem. But singling out ONE religion for selective discrimination is a GIANT step in the proverbial slippery slope into oppression–and truly violates everything the First Amendment stands for.
And please don’t write me with the hackneyed hyperbole that Islam is not a religion, but only a political entity. Tell me modern American Christianity is NOT political! Get real! 501c3 churches operate DIRECTLY under the political government of the United States. By their very charters, they are government organizations.
If Christians truly believe they are justified in hating and discriminating against Muslims, why don’t they stop beating around the bush and start actually doing something about it? Why don’t they follow the dictates of the hatred of their hearts and round up every Muslim in the United States, imprison them, and then execute them? In their hearts, that’s what they WANT to do. And didn’t Jesus say something about hatred in the heart being the same as murder? So, get on with it, brethren.
Oh! And Merry Christmas! Let’s all go to church this Sunday and celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace. You know, the One whom God the Father sent to Bethlehem because of His great love for the whole world.
P.S. Given the current propensity of the U.S. government to declare American citizens as “extremists” and such, I invite readers to order James Jaeger’s brand new film, “Midnight Ride: When Rogue Politicians Call For Martial Law.”
Distinguished patriot luminaries such as Pat Buchanan, Larry Pratt, Ron Paul, G. Edward Griffin, Sheriff Richard Mack, Stewart Rhodes, Edwin Vieira, Jr., and several others are featured in this film. I am honored to also be featured.
I invite readers to go to my website and order the DVD of this brand new film. And please tell your friends. Order “Midnight Ride” here:

W.H. stops demanding Assad’s removal after news reports reveal West backing ISIS
The Obama administration is no longer publicly asking for “regime change” in Syria after multiple news reports revealed how NATO and its allies have spent years supporting Islamic jihadists to try and topple Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he accepted Russia’s request that the U.S. let the Syrian people decide Assad’s political fate.
“The United States and our partners are not seeking so-called regime change,” Kerry told reporters on Tuesday after meeting President Vladimir Putin.
This is a huge concession from the Obama administration considering the president spent the past several years stating “Assad must go.”
“Obama wants regime change. Putin doesn’t want regime change. Regime change canceled,” as hotair.com so eloquently stated.
But why this sudden shift in public policy? Well, Czech President Milos Zeman recently stated that Turkey is friendly to the Islamic State, and there’s truth to that.
“I think Turkey is indeed a member of NATO, but sometimes behaves as if it’s more an ally of the Islamic State,” Zeman said, as quoted by Czech newspaper Parlamentni Listy. “It removes oil from Syria which finances the Islamic State.”
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi said nearly the exact same thing.
“[Turkey] promised us that they would stop the entry of terrorists, however we need more action in order to stop the pumping of terrorists from Turkey into Syria and into Iraq,” he stated. “Also the stopping of the smuggling of petrol from Syria and Iraq and the financing of Daesh [the Arabic name for IS] in a general sense through this illegal trade.”
And Russia presented evidence of Turkey’s theft of oil from Syria using thousands of oil tankers operating on three major smuggling routes into Turkey.
“One thing is clear: the role that Turkey is playing in this area is in many ways destructive and it’s affecting the European security, it’s affecting its neighbors,” former Mossad agent Uzi Arad told RT. “Ultimately it’s affecting its own society.”
A major scandal erupted in Turkey last year when Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu was caught shipping arms to ISIS, then attempted to cover it up by ordering a media blackout.
Not long after, the Obama administration signed an agreement with Turkey to openly train and arm “moderate” Syrian rebels, but virtually all of the rebels fighting Assad in Syria have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State since at least 2013.
“The Free Syrian Army and the Syrian National Council, the vaunted bulwarks of the moderate opposition, only really exist in hotel lobbies and the minds of Western diplomats,” journalist Ben Reynolds wrote. “There is simply no real separation between ‘moderate’ rebel groups and hardline Salafists allied with al-Qaeda.”
Reynolds wasn’t just making a baseless accusation.
“We are collaborating with the Islamic State and the Nusra Front by attacking the Syrian Army’s gatherings in… Qalamoun [in Syria],” Bassel Idriss, the commander of a Free Syrian Army rebel brigade, told the Lebanese Daily Star in 2014. “ISIS wanted to enhance its presence in the Western Qalamoun area.”
“After the fall of Yabroud and the FSA’s retreat into the hills, many units pledged allegiance to ISIS.”
Another rebel, Abu Ahmed, also said his unit was willing to collaborate with ISIS and its affiliates.
“Fighters feel proud to join al-Nusra [an ISIS affiliate] because that means power and influence,” he told the Guardian.
A secret U.S. government document obtained by Judicial Watch also revealed the U.S. and other NATO nations deliberately backed al-Qaeda in Iraq, which morphed into ISIS, and other Islamic extremist groups to overthrow Syrian president Bashir al-Assad.
“The Salafist [sic], the Muslim Brotherhood and AQI [al-Qaeda in Iraq] are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” the Pentagon documentstated. “The West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support [this] opposition, while Russia, China and Iran ‘support the [Assad] regime.’”
The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, confirmed the document’s importance.
“I don’t know that [the Obama administration] turned a blind eye [to ISIS], I think it was a decision; I think it was a willful decision,” he said.
And if that isn’t enough evidence Obama is supporting ISIS, remember the administration gave Islamic State militants a 45-minute warning prior to bombing their oil tankers.
“Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them. Warning: air strikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life,” the warning leaflets given to ISIS read.
U.S. military pilots also confirmed they were ordered not to drop 75% of their ordnance on ISIS targets because they couldn’t get clearance from their superiors.
“We can’t get clearance even when we have a clear target in front of us,” said House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.)

By Judge Anna
The most recent round of fraud began on March 28, 1861. That was the day the Congress of the united States of America adjourned for lack of quorum and never reconvened. Ever since, “Congress” has functioned in one of three roles—(1) as a corporate Board of Directors for private, mostly foreign-owned and deceptively named governmental services corporations operated by banking cartels (the Federal Reserve running the “United States of America, Inc.” and the IMF running the “UNITED STATES”) or (2) the government of a legislative democracy calling itself the United States of America (Minor)—American “states” more often thought of as federal territories and possessions—
Guam, Puerto Rico, etc., or (3) operating as a plenary oligarchy ruling the Washington DC Municipal Government.
All this time that you thought the members of Congress were representing you and your interests, they’ve been representing other interests entirely. That explains a lot, doesn’t it?
On March 6, 1933 the “President” of the “United States of America, Inc.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt attended a Conference of Governors meeting. These “Governors” were all “State” franchise managers of the United States of America, Inc., exactly like local franchise owners of Burger King or Sears. They got together and pledged the assets of their customers—their employers—the American states and people——as “sureties” for their private corporate debts. And then they bankrupted the “United States of America” and all the “State” franchises.
The “federal” States that were created by the 14th Amendment of their private for-profit corporation’s look-alike, sound-alike “constitution” published as the “Constitution of the United States of America” are not the same as the actual States of the Union, nor are their “State” citizens the same as American State Citizens, nor are their “US citizens” the same as Citizens of the united States, but they pretended that they were and the banks gleefully agreed.
To secure the debt owed by the “United States of America, Inc.” the banks established maritime salvage liens against every parcel of land, every business, every man, woman, and child in America, and continued to operate their doppelganger corporation under Chapter 11 Reorganization. They laid claim to your “good faith and credit” —stole your credit cards— and your identity as an American State Citizen, and they never bothered to tell the victim.
They also had you declared legally dead and probated your estate and issued bonds based on the value of your labor and private property. Just look at “your” Birth Certificate—signed by the County Registrar, an officer of the probate court, issued in the NAME of a “dead person”—you, numbered as a bond and issued on bond paper. At the same time, they converted all your private bank accounts to the ownership of the ESTATE trust they created “in your name” and moved the ESTATE offshore to Puerto Rico where you and your assets supposedly came under the foreign
maritime jurisdiction of the United States of America (Minor). Look at the NAME on “your” bank account checks.
Look at the signature line under a high powered magnifier. The IMF claims that it owns all your bank accounts. It claims that your ESTATE was “abandoned”, and now all the spoils belong to the bank. They are pressing “Congress”to pass “laws” to allow them to seize all American bank accounts—your savings, your retirement accounts, your checking accounts, everything. We’ve seen Dodd-Frank. Now we are seeing “bail-in” proposals. The Big Banks want “Congress” to front for their greed and criminality—again.
This is all fiduciary trust fraud and fiduciary trust fraud has no statute of limitations. 1862 or 1933 or 2014—it makes no difference. We suggest that members of Congress assume their public offices acting under full 100% individual commercial liability —or be ousted and tried as criminals. Next, we suggest that they honor their contract with America and issue debt-free public money— real American Dollars. Next, liquidate all the “too big to fail” banks, tear up the corporate charters these entities have violated, seize back our purloined assets, and shut them all down.
Meanwhile, the market for financial services will open up for banks operated under actual state charters.
This thing you have thought of as your government is nothing but a multi-national conglomerate run criminally amok.
The real government of this country is vested in each of you. You all hold more civil authority on the land than the entire federal government. Deal with the “FEDERAL RESERVE” and “IMF” and “CONGRESS” the same way you would deal with “TARGET” or “WALMART” or “ARBY’S” if they grossly endangered, cheated, enslaved, and defrauded you. Keep calm and get even. You all know what to do.
You have the guaranteed Universal Right of Self-Declaration provided by United Nations Conventions, plus the protections of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. You have the Geneva Conventions and the Lieber Code.
You have the preserved right to Common Law, guaranteed by Uniform Commercial Code 1-308 and recourse guaranteed by 1-103.6, which includes the right not to be bound by any contract that is unilateral, inequitable, involuntary, undisclosed, tainted by fraud, not in-kind, entered in your behalf by others merely claiming to represent you, or deemed to exist as the result of receiving a compelled benefit or fruit of monopoly inducement. You have the absolute right to Expatriate from their maritime jurisdiction.
Do so. When 400 million Americans stand up and clean house, the world will listen and hear the roar.

“Slowly I turned…step by step…inch by inch…,”
(Harry Steppe/Joey Faye Vaudeville routine, immortalized by The Three Stooges)
By Jeremiah Johnson
We are currently being “funneled” into a trap that is created day-by-day with glacial slowness with the intention of nullifying the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the right to keep and bear arms. The “Overton Window” is a concept of pushing forth concepts that are believed to be acceptable by the public. The media has been relentless in its aid to the administration by demonizing any and all who practice their God-given, Constitution affirmed rights to possess firearms. The final enabling of this, however, is being carried about by the U.S. Congress and by President Obama with Executive Actions.
HR 1076, “The Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act,” was introduced in the House of Representatives in February of 2015 by Peter King (R, NY). Here is the summary:
Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2015
Amends the federal criminal code to grant the Attorney General the authority to deny the transfer of firearms or the issuance of a federal firearms and explosives license to any individual if the Attorney General: (1) determines that such individual has been engaged in or has provided material support or resources for terrorist activities, and (2) has a reasonable belief that such individual may use a firearm or explosive in connection with terrorism. Allows any individual whose firearm or explosives license application has been denied to bring legal action challenging the denial.
Prohibits the sale or distribution of firearms or explosives to any individual whom the Attorney General has determined to be engaged in terrorist activities.
Permits the Attorney General to withhold information in firearms and explosives license denial revocation suits if the Attorney General determines that the disclosure of such information would likely compromise national security.
Authorizes the Attorney General to revoke firearms and explosives licenses and permits held by individuals determined to be engaged in terrorism.
Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, used parliamentary procedure to force a vote on legislation banning gun purchases by people on the terrorist watch list. It was Republican Peter King who introduced the bill. Matt Fuller of the Huffington Post penned an article, “House Democrats Hijack Floor for Gun Vote.” Fuller neglected to highlight the fact that a Republican set the stage for it.
Once again we are “treated” to the results of the system: pseudo-bipartisan government, the illusion of a two-party system. Substantiating this concept are the continuous closed-door meetings, the latest being Paul Ryan’s with Pelosi regarding the coming Syrian “refugee” influx into the U.S. Recall, readers: this sort of thing was vividly exemplified in 2009 when Olympia Snow (R, ME) performed similar “functions” as King that enabled Obamacare to come to the floor of the Senate for consideration and eventual voting.
Pelosi’s resolution is a 439-word diatribe that flaunts the term “assault weapons” in one paragraph while unwittingly stating the duties Congressmen are not performing in the next paragraph, that reads:
“Whereas the first duty of Members of Congress is to protect and defend the American people…”
The subsequent paragraph convicts Congress and the Administration:
“Whereas leaders of terrorist organizations have previously urged sympathizers to exploit the United States’ lax gun laws in order to perpetrate domestic terror.”
Interesting and true. Nothing could be closer to the point that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, hosted functions at the White House where the Muslim Brotherhood and other Al Qaeda operatives were hosted, feted, and recognized. The Administration enabled the creation of ISIS and all of their current activities both domestically and abroad. Let us not forget it was the Administration, not the Second Amendment, that illegally created Operation Fast and Furious leading to the death of a Border Patrol Agent. Should this not mean that the Administration and its agents will now be required to turn it all explosives and firearms, as they “perpetrate domestic terror” through such actions?
Gun-control measures are crucial to the Administration and the Congress according to this “terror watch list,” because it is a list that is subject to the Attorney General (the President’s Attorney General), and can be kept out of the public eye with the subjectively-interpreted claim of being “in the interests of national security.”
Now the Administration is augmenting these efforts with an attempt to do it with aid and complicity of State governors, supported by Executive Orders. All throughout this process we see Republicans caving in and proving that there really are only interests of parties, and not true political parties. We are seeing the complete dissolution of checks and balances. We are witnessing the erosion of the Constitution incrementally.
Soon Obama will take even further steps, justifying his actions by “Executive Orders” penned illegally, as they are onerous to the Constitution (in accordance with Marbury vs. Madison). Obama is creating illegal laws under the color of law, and tying all of this in with the treaties his agent, Kerry has signed toward eventual gun confiscation with UN approval. Day by day, step by step, and inch by inch the agenda is being pushed. The question is if we the people are ever going to push in the opposite direction, and if so, when?

By Peggy Noonan
Trump, hopefully, is waking some of the RINOs up. The criticisms of Trump are amazingly missing something. They are lacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him. After all the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity than people may think. And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that. Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others. But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump‘s plan is for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework. But, since most Americans won’t.
1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.
2.) Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too
3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles American interests come first. Always. No apologies. Maximum firepower and military preparedness. Only go to war to win. Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies. Keep the technological sword razor sharp. See the unseen Prepare for threats before they materialize. Respect and support our present and past warriors.
4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.
5.) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U.S., once again creating jobs here.
6.) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.
7.) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America. He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.
8.) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to: Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%. From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%. From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%. $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%.
9.) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.
10.) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.
11.) Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.
12.) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare roles and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.
13.) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.
14.) Trump opposes Common Core.
15.) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
16.) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.
17.) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states rights issue, not a federal issue.
18.) Trump supports the death penalty. Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm… looks like he believes in horse sense!). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: “When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense. On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.
19) Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally.
20) He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation. Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.” We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans. Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them. Looking over this list of what he wants for America I see a very necessary set of goals that are long past due.
Before we criticize someone because the media does, maybe we should seriously consider what he has to offer, as it is important to know what each of our candidates to replace a President who has ruined us globally, and who has put us on a path to disaster! This is not an appeal to vote for Trump, only to give some depth of comparison, before this week’s debate.
I have absolutely no reason to dislike Trump, or to doubt the sincerity of Ms. Noonan’s article, but my research on the International Banking Cartels massive army of loyal soldiers convinces me Trump would have a short life span if he is allowed to win, which I also doubt. The Bankers have the big stick and are adept at swinging it. My instinct is, this is all a dog and pony show to demoralize his supporters.

The Mind Unleashed
On November 28th, 2015, Alaska State Judge Anna von Reitz (Anna Maria Riezinger) addressed an open letter to all federal agents, including the FBI and US Marshals to arrest Congress, the President and the Secretary of the Treasury. She goes into incredible detail on the fraud that has been committed. Anyone who reads this is sure to learn at least something. Below is the text and you can open the original pdf here. This has been encouraged to be shared widely.
Anna Maria Riezinger (Anna Von Reitz)
November 28, 2015 Big Lake,
Alaska Dear Federal Agents:
I am addressing this letter in this way, because it is my understanding that it will be read by members of both the FBI and the US Marshals Service. It is also my understanding that you have available for examination a wet-ink signed copy of the illustrated affidavit of probable cause entitled “You Know Something Is Wrong When…..An American Affidavit of Probable Cause” as back-up reference and evidence.
Since the publication of the affidavit a plethora of new supporting documentation and evidence has come to light. We found, for example, that on June 30, 1864, the members of Congress acting as the Board of Directors of a private, mostly foreign-owned corporation doing business as “The United States of America, Incorporated” changed the meaning of “state”, “State” and “United States” to mean “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation”. Like the 1862 change of the meaning of the word “person” to mean “corporation” cited in our affidavit, these special coded meanings of words render a drastically different picture of the world around us.
It turns out that your “personal bank account” is actually a “corporate bank account”. The “Colorado State Court” is actually the “Colorado District of Columbia Municipal Corporation Court”. If you are shocked to learn these facts, you are not alone. So are millions of other Americans. These changes were made 150 years ago and tucked away in reams of boring meeting minutes and legalistic gobbledygook meant to be applied only to the internal workings of a private governmental services corporation and its employees.
There was no public announcement, just as there was no public announcement or explanation when Congress created “municipal citizenship” known as “US citizenship” in 1868. Properly, technically, even to this day, this form of “citizenship” applies only to those born in the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and other Insular States, so there was no real reason to educate the general public about the topic. As Congress was secretively using the labor and the private property assets of these “citizens” as collateral backing the corporate debts of “The United States of America, Inc.” there was plenty of reason to obscure this development.
At the end of the Civil War it would have been very unpopular to reveal that they were simply changing gears from private sector slave ownership to public sector slave ownership. You may be surprised to learn that slavery was not abolished by the Thirteenth or any other Amendment to any constitution then or now. Instead, slavery was redefined as the punishment meted out to criminals. Look it up and read it for yourselves. It remains perfectly legal to enslave criminals, and it was left to Congress to define who the criminals were, because Congress was given plenary power over the District of Columbia and its citizenry by the original Constitution of the Republic and could do whatever it liked within the District and the Washington, DC Municipalities.
A child picking dandelions on the sidewalk could be arbitrarily defined as a criminal and enslaved for life by the renegade Congress functioning as the government of the District of Columbia and as the Board of Directors for the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation, but for starters, Congress simply defined “US citizens” as debt slaves under the 14th Amendment of their corporation’s articles and by-laws—-which they deceptively named the “Constitution of the United States of America”.
The actual Constitution was and still is called “The Constitution for the united States of America”, but most people untrained in the Law and trusting what they believed to be their government didn’t notice the difference between “The Constitution for the united States of America” and the “Constitution of the United States of America”. Are you beginning to see a pattern of deliberate deceit and self-interest and double-speak and double-dealing? And are you also beginning to catch the drift—the motivation—behind it? Let’s discuss the concept of “hypothecation of debt”.
This little gem was developed by the bankers who actually owned and ran the governmental services corporations doing business as “The United States of America, Inc.” and as the “United States, Incorporated”. When you hypothecate debt against someone or against some asset belonging to someone else, you simply claim that they agreed to stand as surety for your debt — similar to cosigning a car loan — and as long as you make your payments, nobody is any the wiser. Normally, it’s not possible for us to just arbitrarily claim that someone is our surety for debt without proof of consent, but that is exactly what Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the Conference of Governors did in March of 1933.
They named all of us and all our property as surety standing good for the debts of their own bankrupt governmental services corporation during bankruptcy reorganization—-and got away with it by claiming that they were our “representatives” and that we had delegated our authority to them to do this “for” us. The exact date and occasion when this happened and where it is recorded, is given in our affidavit. In order to pull this off, however, they had to allege that we were all “US citizens”, and therefore, all subject to the plenary power of Congress acting as an oligarchy ruling over the District of Columbia and the Federal Territories.
They did this by abusing the public trust and creating and registering millions of foreign situs trusts named after each of us. Under their own diversity of citizenship rules, corporations are considered to be “US citizens”. So they created all these foreign situs trusts as franchises of their own bankrupt corporation, used our names styled like this: John Quincy Adams—-and placed commercial liens against our names as chattel owned by their corporation and standing as surety for its debts. A group of thugs elected to political office grossly transgressed against the American people and the American states and committed the crime of personage against each and every one of us without us ever being aware of it.
They couldn’t enslave us, but they could enslave a foreign situs trust named after us— that we conveniently didn’t know existed— and by deliberately confusing this “thing” with us via the misuse of our given names, they could bring charges against what appeared to be us and our private property in their very own corporate tribunals. And so the fleecing of America began in earnest. The hirelings had our credit cards, had stolen our identities, and were ready to begin a crime spree unheralded in human history.
They claimed that we all knew about this arrangement and consented to it, because we “voluntarily” gave up our gold when FDR sent his henchmen around to collect it—-when as millions of Americans can attest, people gave up their gold in preference to being shot or having to kill federal agents. They chose life for everyone concerned over some pieces of metal, and for that, they are to be honored; unfortunately, their decision gave the rats responsible an excuse to claim that Americans wanted to leave the gold standard and wanted the “benefits” of this New Deal in “equitable exchange” for their gold, their identities, the abuse of their good names as bankrupts and debtors, the loss of allodial title to their land and homes, and their subjection as slaves to the whims of Congress.
According to them—that is, those who benefited from this gross betrayal of the public trust— we all voluntarily left the Republic and the guarantees of the actual Constitution behind, willingly subjected ourselves to Congressional rule, donated all our assets including our labor and property to the Public Charitable Trust (set up after the Civil War as a welfare trust for displaced plantation slaves), and agreed to live as slaves owned by the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation in exchange for what? Welfare that we paid for ourselves. Social Security that we paid for ourselves.
The criminality of the “US Congress” and the “Presidents” acting since 1933 is jaw-droppingly shocking. Their abuse of the trust of the American people is even worse. They have portrayed this circumstance as a political choice instead of an institutionalized fraud scheme, and they have “presumed” that we all went along with it and agreed to it without complaint. Thus, they have been merrily and secretively having us declared “civilly dead” as American State Citizens the day we are born, and entering a false registration claiming that we are “US Citizens” instead. We are told, when we wake up enough to ask, that we are free to choose our political status.
We don’t have to serve as debt slaves. We can go back and reclaim our guaranteed Republican form of government and our birthright status if we want to—- but that requires a secret process in front of the probate court and expatriation from the Federal United States to the Continental United States and all sorts of voo-doo in backrooms that can only be pursued by the few and the knowledgeable and the blessed. Everyone else has to remain as a debt slave and chattel serving whatever corporation bought the latest version of corporate “persona” named after us.
So let me ask you, as members of the FBI and as US Marshals—- does this sound like something you want to be involved with enforcing on innocent people, or does it sound like something you want to end as expeditiously as possible? The frauds that took root in the wake of the Civil War and which blossomed in the 1930’s have come to their final fruition.
Employees of the “District of Columbia Municipal Corporation” and its United Nations successors are being used as jack-booted thugs to throw Americans into privately owned “federal correctional facilities” when those who need correction—- the members of the American Bar Association and the euphemistically named and privately owned and operated “DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE”—continue to ignore the fact that Americans DO have a choice and that by the millions we are demanding our freedom from all these pathetic false commercial claims and presumptions.
We are standing up before the whole world and telling these privately owned “governmental services corporations” to go bankrupt like any other corporation that doesn’t do its job and mind its budget. These entities deserve to go bankrupt and worse. They have spent money and credit that was never theirs to spend. They have defrauded millions if not billions of innocent people and they have prevented Americans from claiming their birthrights for far too long.
These people— the members of Congress and the various “Presidents” of the numerous “United States” corporations — have acted as criminals. They deserve to be recognized as such. The members of the American Bar Association have attempted to wash their hands while profiting from the situation and obstructing justice. They stand around shrugging and saying, “Well, it’s a political choice. We don’t have anything to say about that.”—–yet at the same time, they refuse to correct the probate records to reflect our chosen change of political status when we plainly identify ourselves and enunciate our Will for them.
They, too, deserve to be recognized as self-interested criminals and accomplices to identity theft, credit fraud, and worse— which is why we have recently issued a $279 trillion dollar commercial obligation lien against the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association, and the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. All our assets— our bodies, homes, businesses, lands, and labor—have been signed over into the “Public Charitable Trust” by con men merely claiming to represent us. Then, when we object to their lies and entrapment, they use the same fraud against us as their excuse for bringing more false claims against us and throwing us in jail. Enough is enough.
The British Monarch and the Lords of the Admiralty have promoted this fraud against us at the same time they have claimed to be our trustees, allies and friends in perpetuity. It’s time to clear the way for us to politely and peaceably exit from any presumption that we are or ever were “US citizens”, willing participants in the “Public Charitable Trust”, or willing “sureties” for the debts of any private bank-run governmental services corporation merely calling itself the United States of Something or Other.
We repudiate any presumption of private municipal citizenship or obligation to the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation or any successor thereof, and demand an immediate and permanent correction of the civil record to reflect our birthright status as American State Citizens, nunc pro tunc.
As for you, as “Federal Agents”, you have a lot to think about. For starters— who really pays your paycheck? Is it the goons in Washington, DC? Or does it all come from the American people you are supposed to be serving? Do you believe for one moment that anyone just lined up and gave their gold to FDR voluntarily? Do you believe that anyone gave away all their property and the guarantees of the actual Constitution for the “privilege” of paying for Social Security? No? Wake up and smell the java and start doing your real jobs. If anyone complains—arrest him.
We are reopening the American Common Law Courts expressly for the purpose of settling disputes related to living people and their property assets in excess of $20 as mandated by the Seventh Amendment. We, the American people, are the ones holding absolute civil authority upon the land of the Continental United States, and we give you permission to arrest the members of Congress, the President, the Secretary of the Treasury, and any other politician or appointee pretending to speak for us so as to enslave us and bring false claims against us via this institutionalized fraud scheme.
We want it recognized for what it is and dismantled and repudiated tout de suite. Any court that is caught arresting and prosecuting Americans under the presumptions just described to you— such as bringing charges against foreign situs trusts with names styled like this: John Quincy Adams, or Cestui Que Vie trusts styled like this: JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, or Puerto Rican public transmitting utilities styled like this: JOHN Q. ADAMS—-it is your responsibility to make sure that any individuals being addressed by these courts were actually born in the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, or one of the other Insular States and that they are not ignorant American State Citizens being falsely registered and railroaded.
Do you understand? Is it now completely clear who the criminals are? Your actual employers and benefactors are being attacked and defrauded by criminals pretending to act as their elected representatives and accomplices in black robes who are serving as enforcers of this fraud for profit. This has been happening right under your noses. This whole circumstance has escaped broad scale public understanding because it was being pursued by private governmental services corporations owned and operated by international banking cartels who claimed that these “private arrangements” were none of the public’s business, despite the grotesque and far-ranging impact these cozy understandings have had upon the people of this and many other countries.
Let it be perfectly clear to you that the business of these private corporations has become our business because they have operated in violation of their charters, in violation of the treaties allowing their existence, and in violation of the National Trust. The American Bar Association and the Internal Revenue Service have both been owned and operated as private foreign bill collectors and trust administrators by Northern Trust, Inc., in violent conflict of interest. They are not professional associations, non-profits, nor units of government. They are con artists and privateers whose licenses expired as of September 1, 2013.
The United States Marshals Service is enabled to act in the capacity of constitutionally – sworn Federal Marshals and we invoke their office and service as such; failure to accept the public office means rejection of all authority related to us. The same may be said of the FBI. Either you do your jobs as constitutionally sworn public officers, or you act as private mall cops in behalf of the offending corporations and under color of law when you pretend to have any public authority or function.
This is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Most Iraqis, be they civilians, military personnel, or government officials, do not trust Americans.
At a base level, that makes all kinds of sense. After all, the US did launch what amounted to a unilateral invasion of the country just a little over a decade ago, and when it was all said and done, a dictator was deposed but it’s not entirely clear that Iraqis are better off for it.
ISIS controls key cities including the Mosul, the country’s second largest, and security is a daily concern for the populace. The Americans are still seen – rightly – as occupiers, and Washington’s unwillingness inability to effectively counter ISIS has created a culture of suspicion in which most Iraqis believe the US is in cahoots with the militants for what WaPo described as “a variety of pernicious reasons that have to do with asserting U.S. control over Iraq, the wider Middle East and, perhaps, its oil.”
Some of the distrust, the US contends, is fostered by Iran. Tehran wields considerable influence both within the Iraqi military and in political circles in Baghdad. When Ash Carter announced that the US was set to send an “expeditionary targeting force” to the country to assist in raids on Islamic State targets, PM Haider al-Abadi flatly rejected the proposal, saying that “Iraq does not need foreign ground combat forces on Iraqi land.” Abadi rejected a similar Pentagon trial balloon involving Apaches helicopters last month.
Meanwhile, Tehran’s Shiite militias threatened to attack any US soldiers operating on Iraqi soil. “We will chase and fight any American force deployed in Iraq. Any such American force will become a primary target for our group. We fought them before and we are ready to resume fighting,” a spokesman for Kata’ib Hezbollah said. Similarly, influential Shiite lawmakers like the infamous Hakim al-Zamili have called on Abadi to seek direct military intervention from Moscow to expel foreign forces from the country.
Now, in the latest example of just how tenuous Washington’s grip on the region has become, the Iraqi parliament’s Security and Defense Committee is calling for the review and cancellation of Baghdad’s security agreement with the US.
“The government and parliament need to review the agreement signed with the United States on security because the United States does not seriously care about its fulfillment,” committee member Hamid al-Mutlaq, a senior Sunni lawmaker told Sputnik on Wednesday. “We demand that it be annulled,” he added.
Who will fill the void you ask? You guessed it:
“Soon, a meeting [of the committee] with Prime Minister Haider Abadi will be held, at which we will propose cooperating with Russia in carrying out airstrikes against IS and in the fight against terrorism in Iraq,” another committee member said earlier this week.
Recall that this is precisely what we said would happen once we learned in September that Russia, Iran, Iraq, and Syria had set up a joint intelligence sharing cell in Baghdad.
It was clear from the beginning that Tehran saw an opportunity to consolidate its power in Iraq and preserve its influence in Syria by convincing Vladimir Putin that Russia could replace the US as Mid-East superpower puppet master by helping Tehran to defeat the insurgency in Syria and boot the US from Iraq once and for all. Moscow will of course get a warm reception from Iraqi lawmakers thanks to the fact that many MPs are loyal to Iran.
This makes sense logistically as well. Once the Russians and Iranians have retaken Aleppo (which admittedly is taking a while), they can push east towards Raqqa and from there, move straight across the border, effectively pinching ISIS between an advance from the west and Iran’s Shiite militias already operating in Iraq. Of course that will entail some measure of cooperation with the US, France, Britain, and, once in Iraq, the Peshmerga. It is at that point that Washington’s resolve when it comes to preserving whatever charade is being perpetrated in Raqqa will be put to the ultimate test.
In the meantime, it will be interesting to see how the US responds to a move by Baghdad to nullify the security agreement.
Washington knows it can land troops in Iraq by simply going through Erbil which is precisely what Turkey did last Friday. The KRG/ Barzani end-around serves to give the troop deployments a kind of quasi-legitimacy. That is, the Kurds control the territory and are self governing, so when Erdogan (and, soon Obama) drop troops in northern Iraq against Baghdad’s wishes, they can claim it’s not a violation of sovereignty. As we saw over the weekend, Iraqi officials aren’t going to stand for it going forward although now that it’s become clear that NATO and the Security Council aren’t going to be any help (just as we said), Iraq’s ambassador to the UN is striking a concilliatory tone, saying Baghdad will try to settle the dispute with Turkey “bilaterally.”
It now appears that the stage is set for Baghdad to claim that the US, like Turkey, is illegitimately occupying the country (again). If Iraq nullifies the security agreement and moves to invite the Russians into the country, the US will be forced to either pack up and leave, cooperate with Moscow, or fight for the right to preserve American influence.

In the 1960’s, America was nearly torn apart by the younger generation’s refusal to accept the lies being perpetrated by its government with regard to supporting the immoral Vietnam War. If these “hippies” had taken the moral high-ground with regard to personal behavior and morality, they very well would have toppled the two administrations that perpetrated and maintained the war. But when your battle cry “Hell no, we won’t go”, is accompanied by the mantra of “drugs, sex and rock and roll”, the legitimacy of the message becomes obscured. However, at that generation had the intestinal fortitude to take to the streets. In the face of dire danger today, this generation of Americans takes to its electronic devices.
Last night, while appearing as a guest on the Hagmann and Hagmann report, Doug Hagmann asked me why Americans are so dumbed down that we cannot even mount the slightest bit of resistance to the tyranny that is engulfing this country. The superficial response is simple; America has acquiesced to its fate. In addition, as Steve Quayle put it on my show this past Sunday night, Attorney General “Loretta Lynch (mob)” stated that she would prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any person speaking against Islam and Muslims in general. This misguided statement was made immediately on the heels of the San Bernardino massacre which was inspired by ISIS. Lynch (mob’s) insensitivity toward the 14 people who just lost their lives at the hands of terrorists is symbolic about this administration views its citizens in general. In the 1960’s, our counterculture friends would have already been in the streets. Today……crickets chirping. Why? Doug Hagmann asked me why and I responded with an explanation of Dr. Martin Seligman’s psychological construct known as learned helplessness. I was partially right, however, the main reason America is dead on arrival is because we do not fear God.
My most sincere apologies to the audience of The Hagmann and Hagmann Report for having a mental lapse. I should have stated that the main reason that America is going to burn is because we have turned away from our God. The second reason America is doomed is because our people have permitted themselves to be rendered psychologically useless through the process of learned helplessness.
America is Spiritually Bankrupt
Abraham asked if the Lord would spare the two decadent cities if fifty righteous people lived there. The Lord said yes. Boldly, Abraham kept bargaining down, until God agreed not to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah if even ten righteous people lived there. Then the Lord departed. Unable to find even 10 righteous men, the Lord subsequently rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah, destroying the buildings, the people, and all the vegetation. This is our future because we have lost our true Christian heritage. The wages of sin are death and destruction. We are clearly a nation under judgment as evidenced by the fact that we tolerate Planned Parenthood to sell fetal body parts with impunity. Apparently, we have learned very little from the lessons of history.
If the Lord were to visit Washington DC and encounter the likes of Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, McCain and Obama, he would find that there were not 50 righteous men, there were not 40 righteous men, not 30, not 20, not even, 10 righteous men and just like Sodom and Gomorrah, we will surely be destroyed. Our government is the source of nearly every war on this planet which kills and maims untold numbers of innocent people including the very old and the very young. Our government is controlled by the minions of the NWO, many of which are empowered to serve Lucifer. Our government and our military no longer serve the people of this country. Prior to the 2008 first round of bailouts, former Goldman Sachs executive and the Secretary of the Treasury, Hank Paulson, stated that if we did not bail out Wall Street, we would see tanks and troops in our streets in one of the most treasonous statements ever uttered by a government official. And before the Libyan invasion, the Congress was told that our military was now under the control of NATO and the UN and that they had no say in whether we go to war, or not. Our country and government have been totally hijacked and it is not just the bankster thugs who have stolen our most precious resources. The minions of the NWO are controlled by Satan. This is not hyperbole; please consider the following quote from a United Nations official:
“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”
David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations
And remember, Congress was told that we are now under the control of the United Nations, as witnessed by the UN Small Arms Treaty, Agenda 21 (2030) and of course, specifically, climate change. Of course, we could fall to our knees and universally repent…but the band played on. You may still save your soul, but keeps goals within the realm of reality.
Why won’t America stand up for herself? Why is the country, once a country which possessed courage and conviction, now sitting idly while allowing itself to be taken to the slaughter without so much as a whimper?
The answer to the above question lies in the psychological concept known as “Learned Helplessness” as discovered by Martin Seligman in the 1960’s.
“Learned helplessness” occurs when an animal, or a person, is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape from. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action”.
In the first phase of the learned helplessness experiment, Seligman placed a dog on an electrical grid, shocked the dog and noted that the dog would demonstrate the ability to escape the aversive stimulus.
In the second phase, the dog was barricaded on the grid and was unable to escape the painful shocks. Eventually the dog laid down and passively accepted the shock.
Seligman then removed the barricades and the dog could have easily escaped the shocks. However, the dog, conditioned by the prior set of events, simply laid down and accepted the shocks, without mounting any resistance whatsoever. This, in large part, is where America is at today.
On March 15, 1939, in a meeting with the senile Czech President Emil Hacha Hitler threatened to bomb against Prague, the Czech capital, unless he obtained from Hacha free passage for German troops into Czech borders. Hitler got his concession. On that very same day, German troops moved into Bohemia and Moravia. These two provinces offered no resistance, and they were quickly absorbed by Germany. That very evening, Hitler made a triumphant entry into Prague. Substitute the name Americans for Czech and replace Germany with the UN with their Peace-keepers, we will witness history repeating itself. When ISIS launches its version of the TET Offensive in the near future, my fellow countrymen will likely cower in the corner and let nature take its course. Before you answer “Molon Labe” and Hodges is full of …., you might want to look behind you to see who, if anybody is with you.

Hint: Think OBUMA
While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.
The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘Post Turtle”.
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a ‘Post Turtle’ was.
The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘Post Turtle’.
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain.
“You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with.”

“If you fail to subdue or kill the bully, the bully owns you, either by fear, or by force.” -Ron Ewart
We do not know if Obama is a Muslim in his heart and mind, but without a doubt Obama is a Muslim sympathizer. He has proven it time and time again starting with his Cairo speech in June 2009, early on in his presidency. Perhaps this is a projection of his early childhood when raised in Indonesia, a Muslim country. Or perhaps it was because his Kenyan father was a Muslim. Maybe he was converted to Islam during his clandestine trip to Pakistan in 1981. Or, perhaps it goes deeper than that. Could it be that Obama is a Muslim version of the Manchurian candidate? You decide!
But Obama is more than just a Muslim sympathizer. He has aided and abetted radical Islam causes by failing to protect Americans from all enemies, foreign and domestic and by his in-action in the face of a direct threat against American sovereignty and security.
By not seeing the potential growth of an Al Qaeda splinter group in Iraq, (ISIS) Obama negligently pulled our troops out of Iraq against the advice of his generals. Not only did this criminal action by Obama allow ISIS to metastasize, it allowed Iran, a sponsor of international terrorism, to move in and influence the government of Iraq, thus rendering Iraq just another Iranian puppet.
As a result, Iran’s puppet, Iraq, (both Muslim Shia) refused to let the Sunnis and Kurds in Northern Iraq participate in the Iraq government, thereby fueling disaffection, insurrection and the growth of ISIS. It also re-ignited the 1,500-year-old civil war between Shia and Sunnis over the successor to the prophet Muhammad. Because of the Sunni’s sympathy with ISIS and not the government of Iraq, when the bully ISIS came to conquer, the Sunni military that American soldiers trained, turned over their weapons to ISIS that American taxpayers funded and then ran for the shadows. Suddenly, virtually overnight, ISIS had a powerful military, armed with American hardware, funded by Iraqi oil and the spoils of war.
But Obama’s actions and in-actions go even deeper than criminal negligence, to virtually aiding and abetting the enemy. That, by any definition, is treason. Iraq was and still is a strategic nation, in the middle of Muslim tribal chaos and Islamic civil war. American military presence was crucial to the stability of the entire, unstable Middle East region.
American taxpayers had already funded the war in Iraq to the tune of over $2,000,000,000,000 (that’s Trillion) and over 4,000 of its sons and daughters paid the ultimate price, with thousands more severely wounded or permanently disabled.
America’s continued military presence in Iraq would have been a significant deterrent against the rise of radical Islam (ISIS), Syria and Iran adventurism and a Sunni-Shia civil war. We had military and air bases built all over Iraq, at taxpayer expense. Those same taxpayers further funded a $1,000,000,000 (that’s Billion) American Embassy in Baghdad. (God knows why the State Department needed a $1 Billion embassy in Baghdad. Perhaps it was more than an embassy. Perhaps the embassy was and still is a front for the CIA.)
When ISIS kept growing, Obama played it down. When ISIS took town after town in Syria and Iraq, Obama did nothing. After being pressured to DO SOMETHING, he commenced a limited, hands-tied-behind-their-backs, military pinprick. ISIS kept growing. Obama limited American air strikes so as to prevent civilian casualties, or inflict environmental damage. Many warplanes returned to base with bomb loads still attached to the aircraft. The military begrudgingly carried out Obama’s insane orders to fight a war with no purpose, no goal and no end game. It was Obama’s war for show and propaganda with no intention of winning anything. Sacrificing military lives and hardware for show and propaganda, is even more treasonous.
ISIS is still growing and implanting itself in other countries and aligning itself with other radical Islamic groups. Because they have been so successful, they attract radical Muslim youths from all over the world to join them, including American Muslim immigrants that were imported to America from other Muslim countries. ISIS is, without a doubt, an existential threat to the United States that Obama refuses to acknowledge, much less confront that threat decisively.
With each terror attack success, more radicals flock to the cry of Allahu Akbar (Allah is great), fueled by a radical interpretation of the Qur’an. (It still remains a question whether radical Islamists are really radical when they are just following the ramblings of the alleged prophet Muhammad, as he laid out his personal interpretations of Allah‘s mandates in the Qur’an.)
For failing to keep troops in Iraq, the blood spilled at each ISIS or Al Qaeda terrorist attack is on Obama’s hands. He alone had the power to prevent it. Radical Islamic groups are now competing with each other to see who can inflict the most civilian casualties. Each of these growing terrorist attacks where blood is spilled is on Obama’s hands.
In the recent Paris terrorist attack, 130 died needlessly and over 350 were wounded. Their blood is on Obama’s hands.
In Egypt a Russian passenger jet was blown out of the sky over the desolate Sinai Peninsula by an ISIS bomb. Russian blood is on Obama’s hands.
For failing to stop the Syrian butcher, Basar Al Assad, the blood of 250,000 Syrians is on Obama’s hands. That civil war, that Obama could have stopped, is creating floods of refugees pouring into Europe and trying to get into America. Many of those refugees are terrorists. Russia has now joined Assad with Russian military assets, making the removal of Assad by America an invitation to a third world war between the two super powers.
Now, spilled blood from Islamic terrorism has landed on American shores in what is surely the first of more to come terrorist attacks by radical or radicalized Muslims. If there is any doubt in anyone’s mind, given the preliminary evidence that the San Bernardino attack was a radical Islamic terrorist attack, they are delusional. Even before the time this article is published, all doubt will have been removed.
Syed Rizwan Farook, the San Bernardino terrorist attacker and his Muslim wife, were prepared to perpetrate massive, unprecedented carnage somewhere in America. Perhaps his anger over an employment injustice or dispute, enraged him to the point he attacked his co-workers instead for personal reasons, prior to the planned terrorist event. Or maybe the attack on the service center was the plan all along. Nevertheless, there is no doubt he was planning a massive terrorist attack, given the arsenal he had assembled. The question is, who are his co-conspirators. He had to have had help.
But it makes no difference whether the San Bernardino terrorist attack was inspired by ISIS, Al Qaeda, or just a self-radicalized Islamic nut case. The growth of radical Islam has been and is on Obama’s watch. The American blood spilled in San Bernardino is on Obama’s hands.
It must be clear to everyone with any intellect at all, that terrorism will not be stopped until the terrorists are crushed where they live. Once crushed the draw to terrorism for young Jihadists will cease. Obama’s job was to crush the terrorists and he has failed miserably to do the job, leaving all Americans in grave peril in their own country.
Obama’s Sunday night speech did nothing to allay the fears of those Americans who will now think twice about going to the mall, or the theater, or a sports event for fear of another terrorist attack. He offered nothing new in the fight on terror in that speech. His emphasis on more gun control and trying to make us feel guilty about a possible Muslim backlash were hollow and meaningless. More gun control would not have stopped the San Bernardino attack and there is no noticeable backlash against Muslims in America, even though out of the five major religions in the world, only one of those religions, Islam, is mandating that everyone else convert or die.
We say, “Muslims, heal thine self or the wrath of righteous indignation will descend upon you with full force and fury.”
We predict that another San Bernardino style terrorist attack in America, will incite the people to call for all Islamic terrorists to be crushed, anywhere on the planet, with America’s full military might and they won’t care about civilian casualties or environmental damage. Trump is already making that call and that is why he is still popular and rising in popularity.
Obama’s foreign policy actions or in-actions don’t stop at criminal negligence, or even treason. His socialist, radical environmental policies, Muslim loving and unconstitutional Executive Orders just add to the list of what may be the most irreparable damage that any president has done to American freedom and sovereignty. His obsession with “climate change”, gun control, amnesty for illegal aliens and importing Syrian refugees into America while people are dying all over the planet from Islamic terrorist attacks, borders on neurotic paranoia, just plain stupidity, or pure evil. Any sane person knows gun controls won’t stop terrorists or lone, crazed gunmen in America, or anywhere else.
Obama’s constant deflection to other issues, or blaming others for his failures, when presented with major crises, is classic narcissism. He is either clueless, or diabolically evil.
Why Obama has not been impeached or indicted for treason by now will ring in the history books for centuries. How a man like Obama, with such a tortured past, ever became president of the Unites States of America, falls squarely on an electorate that has lost all allegiance to the values and foundation of a free society conceived in liberty and dedicated to the preservation of the individual, unalienable rights of its citizens. Obama was before his election and still is as President and will continue to be at the end of his term, anti-America and pro Muslim.
It will take decades to repair what this monster and the Democrats, that aided and abetted him, have unleashed on America and its people. It may even be irreparable. Meanwhile, because of his foreign policy failures, the streets of America could run red with blood as radical Islam infiltrates the fabric of America and becomes a cancer that can’t be cured. That blood will be on Obama’s hands and those people that supported him and those people that elected him.
Yes, Obama is the cause, but millions of Americans who voted for this Islamic Trojan Horse are the cause of the cause and they too share the responsibility and the blame for all that blood that will be spilled in American cities, in the name of radical Islam. That blood will stain Obama’s hands and forever render him the most dangerous and inept president that clueless liberal Americans ever elected to this high office. Will that same clueless liberal group of Americans be stupid enough to elect a hopelessly corrupt, female carbon copy of Obama? If they do …… ?
We’d like to know what is on your mind regarding Obama and Islam:
1- “Should Obama be impeached or indicted for treason?”
2- “Is Obama a narcissist that should have never been elected president?”
3- “Has Obama been good for America?”
4- “Is Islam a peaceful religion?”

Back in 2011 we facetiously noted that innocent Americans were being added to terror watchlists and No-Fly lists at an alarming pace. So much so, we opined, that by 2020every person in the United States would be deemed a terrorist and that the entire world would be on a government watchlist by 2025.
We were kind of joking… but only kind of, because as we highlighted last year, the President approved a substantial expansion of the lists wherein concrete facts are no longer necessary for law enforcement and intelligence agencies to flag pretty much anyone, for any reason as being suspected of terrorism. In fact, the new rules set forth by the administration make it possible for one to be added to a watchlist for being suspected of being a suspected terrorist. Yes, it is absolutely ridiculous on its face.
As we warned, the anti-gun left and especially the Obama administration is always looking for new and innovative ways to disarm American citizens. Whether it be high taxation of ammunition, identification requirements for purchasing ammo as in California (but no worries, because you can still vote without an I.D.), or outright bans on the importation of firearms and related accessories, there is an overt and sustained push to overhaul (i.e. eliminate) the rights protected by the Second Amendment.
In what can only be described as nothing short of a full-court Obama press against America’s gun owners, in his weekly Saturday address to the nation the President has now taken his disarmament agenda to the next level, suggesting that it is “insane” for anyone on a watch list to own a gun.
“This tragedy reminds us of our obligation to do everything in our power, together, to keep our communities safe,” Obama said in his address. “We know that the killers in San Bernardino used military-style assault weapons — weapons of war — to kill as many people as they could. It’s another tragic reminder that here in America it’s way too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on a gun.”
Obama, who has said that failing to pass comprehensive gun reform is the greatest frustration” of his time in office, said it was ridiculous that people on a no-fly list in the United States could legally purchase a gun.
“That is insane. If you’re too dangerous to board a plane, you’re too dangerous, by definition, to buy a gun. And so I’m calling on Congress to close this loophole, now,” he said. “We may not be able to prevent every tragedy, but — at a bare minimum — we shouldn’t be making it so easy for potential terrorists or criminals to get their hands on a gun that they could use against Americans.”
Keep in mind that, as Senator Rand Paul warned on the Senate floor, Someone Who Has Guns, Ammunition, 7 Days of Food can be considered a potential terrorist. Moreover, a recent report highlights scores of other reasons for why someone may qualify as a domestic terrorist:
So how does a person qualify as a potential domestic terrorist? Based on the training I have attended, here are characteristics that qualify:
• Expressions of libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
• Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership, holding a CCW permit)
• Survivalist literature (fictional books such as “Patriots” and “One Second After” are mentioned by name)
• Self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
• Fear of economic collapse (buying gold and barter items)
• Religious views concerning the book of Revelation (apocalypse, anti-Christ)
• Expressed fears of Big Brother or big government
• Declarations of Constitutional rights and civil liberties
• Belief in a New World Order conspiracy
And once you’re on the list, there is pretty much no way to get off because the government, citing national security reasons, doesn’t have to release any details and the burden of proof falls on the individual who has been identified as a terrorist, potential terrorist, or someone suspected of being a suspected terrorist.
Those secretly blacklisted have no real path to challenge their status, states a new report, thus indefinitely restricting those listed from travel or simply getting a job.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans and foreigners languish in the watchlist system, considered “known or suspected terrorists” based on secret rules and evidence that are basically impenetrable should the average suspect attempt to contest them, says a new report by the ACLU that highlights these challenges.

Obama’s latest proposal would mean that not only would those added to watch lists without cause or due process be restricted from flying or have a near impossible time getting a job, they would not be allowed to purchase firearms. The next step, of course, would be the disarmament of those who already own guns.
