60 Hard Truths about “Liberals”

Author Unknown (What a shame!)

For those of you who do not know, especially young people, I am compelled to inform you of the generally un-known truth that the word “Liberal” has a proud heritage and was originally a word that described men who were the political opposites of modern “Liberals.”

The word “Liberal” was forcibly stolen and corrupted by evil men who intentionally perverted the use and meaning of the word. In the long forgotten past, the word “Liberal” described honorable and principled men who held to a philosophy of government that advocated Constitutional Republicanism. Constitutional Republicanism is a type of government almost unknown to most of the world. America was originally a Constitutional Republic. A Constitutional Republic defined is characterized by a very small government with limits on its powers of taxation and whose other powers are strictly limited by rigorously enforced Constitutional edicts. But modern Liberals are nothing more and nothing less than Communists, Socialists and Dictators. Modern Liberals promote, advocate and enforce the centralization of all political power into an all powerful central government. The honorable old Liberals of the 19th century must be spinning in their graves over the outrageous corruption and modern use of the word “Liberal.” Following are 60 Truisms about Liberals:

 

  1. At the most basic level, the Liberal is anti-God. He is an intellectually dishonest, unprincipled, mentally immature, spoiled child who is forever in search of a world without moral consequence. That is why the Liberal makes “The State” his god. The Liberal worships THE STATE. The Liberal attempts to use his god (government) to eliminate all moral consequences for immoral behavior. In the name of “Justice,” the Liberal also pretends to make his god (The State) “level” all peoples so that the wise or the beautiful or the genius will have no advantage over the unwise, the ugly and the simpleton in the marketplace. The Liberal calls this tyrannical State of Government, UTOPIA.

 

  1. The Liberal vainly imagines that freedom from moral consequence can be secured by a collectivist, totalitarian state.

 

  1. Liberals use moralistic platitudes and catchy phrases like “social justice” and “The Brotherhood of Man” to appeal to the naive masses who are duped into believing that the ultimate goals of Liberals are genuinely benign and beneficient. However at the root, like the Prince in Machiavelli’s greatest work, the single moral principle that Liberals adhere to is the continual accumulation and centralization of all power.

 

  1. The ideologies of Liberals must inevitably end in world-wide totalitarianism.

 

  1. All non-sexual individual freedoms are despised by the Liberal. Why? Because those kinds of individual freedoms, (such as economic self-reliance) demand moral responsibility.

 

  1. The fundamental power struggle of Liberals may be classified as the individual versus the collective. The Liberal supports the collective in every contest against the individual. The individual must be relieved of all power in favor of the collective. All power must be centralized.

 

  1. Liberals hate Individualism because it demands moral responsibility. Liberals support collectivism because they hope to eliminate the need for moral responsibility.

 

  1. The U.S. Constitution and specifically the support for rugged individualism which is evident in the Bill of Rights, is the enemy of the Liberal.

 

  1. The Liberal despises the United States because it is the premier protector and promoter of individualism in the world.

 

  1. In the mind of a Liberal, all institutions and concerns schools, environment, courts, etc. – serve no relevant purpose other than the promotion of collectivism.

 

  1. In the depraved thought processes of a Liberal, abortion becomes necessary to guarantee sexual freedom and eliminate moral consequence.

 

  1. The basis of traditional healthy psychology is to help individuals take personal responsibility for the choices they have made and to help them make better choices in the future. The basis of modern psychology as defined by the Liberals who are members of the self deluded, isolated and ill-educated Professorial Class living in their government financed socialist Ivory Towers, is the elimination of moral responsibility.

 

  1. In order to advance their agenda, Liberals create an atmosphere of crisis and fear that is used to justify their collectivist oppression. Liberals love to go to war against other nations for it is during times of war that they are most successful in getting the most oppressive legislation passed in Congress. Check your history books and you will see that every major war America has fought in the last 100 years was started by a Liberal or a statist who philosophically supported centralized government

 

  1. Any religion or religious person who believes or teaches that there are moral consequences for sin, is the enemy of Liberalism and must be oppressed.

 

  1. Western nations and Western Civilization have produced more liberty and more prosperity for more people than any other culture in History. Christianity is the foundation of the culture upon which Western civilization was built. A genuinely Christian populace will reject collectivism and support individualism. A genuine Christian populace will live moral lives and thus they will support governmental policy that encourages individual, personal, moral responsibility. A genuine Christian populace will reject collectivism and centralized government. A morally debauched populace will look to the government to support them and shelter them from their bad moral choices. Thus for the collectivist Liberal bent on imposing socialism upon a nation, Christianity is the number one enemy above all other enemies. Christianity must be eliminated.

 

  1. Despite decades of spectacular failure in nation after nation, the Liberal clings to his collectivist dream because it is far more than a theory of government. It is a religion.

 

  1. The Liberal seeks to dominate any institution that can interfere with, weaken or destroy individual parental rights. Thus you will note that Liberals completely control and dominate public schools, child abuse agencies, pediatric associations, welfare departments, social service agencies and all NGO’s that feign concern for the welfare of children. Why? Because in order for Liberals to impose socialism upon a people, they must undermine the ability of the people to govern themselves according to God’s moral law. To accomplish this they must weaken the main support of morality. Strong families are one of the greatest threats to the final goals of Liberalism. The total disintegration of the American family in recent decades among some ethnic communities has occurred as a direct result of the design and intention of Liberals. Feel the hate. Hate is good when directed at these demonic Liberals who are the avowed enemies of God, Family Values and freedom.

 

  1. The Liberal applauds the imprisoning of home-schooling parents who dare to raise their children outside the control of collectivist public schools.

 

  1. Private ownership of guns is the single greatest symbol of individual power, and therefore is despised by Liberals.

 

  1. All individual freedoms demand the responsible behavior of the individual, and therefore demand a moral code. Liberals despise freedom because they despise morality.

 

  1. The Liberal loves Bill Clinton because of who he is, not in spite of who he is.

 

  1. The Liberal despises national sovereignty. Why? Because the best protection of individual freedoms is found in small decentralized governments.

 

  1. The Liberal promotes the growth of multi-national and international governments such as the European Union and the United Nations because these organizations advance the cause of socialism and seek to destroy the very individualism that is best protected by sovereign states.

 

  1. The Liberal fears any hint of individualism in any part of the world, and is obsessed with the centralized control of all human activity and thought. Thus the Liberal constantly seeks total control over all forms of media. The Internet is driving Liberals crazy with fear that more people will start thinking for themselves and demand limited decentralized governments in nations around the world.

 

  1. “Multi-culturalism” is the code word for a single, oppressive, collectivist culture. The root word of “culture,” is the word “cult,” meaning religion. Christianity is the only religion that finds a perfect balance between allowing mankind maximum liberty within the guidelines of clearly delineated moral absolutes, without the need for an oppressive State. Because a genuine Christian populace will be self governing in the matter of moral issues there is no need for an all-powerful government to police an unruly populace. The Eighth Commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Steal,” presupposes the right of individuals to own private property. The Eighth Commandment is therefore the foundation of Western Capitalism and the engine of our prosperity. This is another reason why Liberals hate the Bible. If Liberals are successful at transforming America into a totally multi-cultural, i.e., multi-religious, non-Christian society, we will lose our freedom.

 

  1. Liberals speak often of tolerance, but they only tolerate Liberals and Liberal ideas. For instance, Liberals hate Christianity and conservative Bible believing Christians are persona non grata in any gathering of Liberals. Liberals are extremely intolerant concerning Christianity because of its insistence upon personal responsibility and moral absolutes. Liberals know that a society without moral absolutes and a society without strong emphasis upon personal responsibility will fall like a ripe apple into their greedy socialist clutches because self reliance and rugged individualism are traits that are only found amongst moral peoples who come from strong families.

 

  1. The Liberal seeks to criminalize any speech that promotes morality or individualism as “hate speech.” Thus we see Liberal Judges and Liberal Courts outlawing the Bible and gutting the free speech provisions of the first amendment of the constitution. Liberal Judges are now declaring that the Bible’s proscriptions against homosexuality are illegal “hate speech” and scripture is now in the process of being outlawed from any appearance in public discourse or the public square. If one speaks in favor of individualism and against affirmative action in a public forum at work, Liberal Judges and Liberal Courts are now saying that such speech amounts to intimidation of minorities and is prohibited by law.

 

  1. Environmentalists lie as a matter of course. Why? Because environmentalists have a false god too. Whereas the god of the Liberal is “The State,” the god of the environmental extremist worships is “the creation,” rather than the Creator. This warps their thinking and as a result they become anti-human. They fall into all kinds of error such as elevating the rights of animals above those of mankind. Whereas the Christian world-view teaches men that they are to be “Good Stewards” of the earth and all it’s creatures. The Christian world-view instructs men that they are to be kind to animals, but that they are not to elevate anything above the value of human life. Why? Because the Bible teaches that mankind is the crown of God’s entire Creation. The Bible teaches that “Man was created in the image of God.” Thus human life is profoundly sacred and highly valued far above that of any animal or wilderness or wetland (swamp). Thus genuine Christians who hold to a Biblical world-view will know that private property rights trump the claims of the EPA “nature nazi’s” to regulate how a farmer may use his private property. Genuine Christians who hold to a Biblical world-view will know that these “Watermelon” Environmental Extremists have no right to tell a man how to use his own private property unless it can be proven that the owner is doing damage to his neighbors property. (PS A “Watermelon Environmentalist” is a person who is GREEN on the outside (i.e., they claim to care about the environment) but they are truthfully COMMUNIST RED on the inside (i.e., they do not really care about the environment. They are just using the moral cause of preserving the environment as a means of consolidating their power and advancing the cause of Socialism and One World Government.)

 

  1. The Liberal’s only method of debate is to appeal to the emotions of mis-educated and illogical persons. Liberals seek to insult and discredit anyone who dares to disagree with them, especially in the college class-room. Why? Because the facts of logic and history do not support the agenda they are seeking to advance.

 

  1. When possible, Liberals oppress anyone who questions their beliefs. Is that “Liberal?”

 

  1. Liberals despise all innocence – especially the innocence of a child. Thus Hollywood Liberals seek to steal the innocence of our children as early as possible and the public schools assist them in this goal.

 

  1. Liberals seek to sexualize our children, eliminate age of consent laws and promote the normalization of pedophilia, all in the pursuit of sexual freedom.

 

  1. In the Liberal mind, your freedom is their oppression.

 

  1. Private property and individual wealth is integral to individualism, and the enemy of the Liberal.

 

  1. The Liberal hates you.

 

  1. The Liberal seeks to replace a moral world-view with an emotional world-view. For instance: If you protest that it is wrong for them to steal your money (via confiscatory taxes, forcibly collected to support welfare programs) against your will and give it to persons that you do not know and do not care about, Liberals will counter your argument with an appeal to the emotions of the listeners. They will drone on about how we are the wealthiest nation in the world and surely we can afford to make sure that THE CHILDREN in the ghettos of America are afforded free dental care. (My eyes are ROLLING at this one! I am soo sick of hearing this!)

 

  1. The Liberal typically chooses a career in a field that produces nothing of value. A Liberal will look for employment in field such as public education, an employee of local, county, state or federal government, an “activist,” a lawyer, or a bureaucrat in a tax free foundation or an NGO devoted to advancing Liberal goals, etc. Then the Liberal will use government to extract wealth from others by force via the power to tax.

 

  1. Liberal do-gooder programs enrich Liberals and do little to actually help the poor.

 

  1. The Liberal despises masculinity as a symbol of individual power.

 

  1. Feminists groups are about lesbianism, socialism and hatred of men, not equal rights for women.

 

  1. Liberals are perfectly willing to destroy you financially, remove your children, and imprison you for what you believe. They are not open-minded and tolerant. They are viciously intolerant of any divergence from the dogma of left-wing ideology. They are perfectly willing to subject you to a Liberal version of an Inquisition and the penalties of this “modern” Inquisition are no less severe than the penalties doled out by the original inquisitors. These modern Inquisitors will use the full powers of the government, the police state powers, without hesitation, in order to enforce the decrees of their priestly class, the justices in black robes. Who are the justice’s in black robes? They are the federal judges who have been highly exalted and lifted up, by Liberals, far above all other men as final arbiters of what is right and wrong, thus taking the place of God. And that is the real goal, the ultimate goal of all Liberals. They want to dis-
    place and dethrone Almighty God. Liberal emulate their father the devil, in as much as they likewise, want to be god. Just as Satan promised Eve in the garden, “Ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil,” so is the Liberals lust for power is driven by their desire to determine good and evil for all mankind, apart from and without respect to Almighty God.

 

  1. Liberals fear technology and change – because neither can be centrally controlled.

 

  1. Liberals are not obsessed with sex, but with promiscuity. Promoting promiscuity among the masses is the primary mission of the Liberals who control the Hollywood, Television and print media monopoly. Why? Because Liberals know that the twin pillars that support conservatism are family values and faith in God. By promoting promiscuity Liberals know that they are simultaneously attacking both of the main support pillars of rugged individualism. Liberals know that a man of sterling character and discipline who is a moral, God fearing family man has no need of state support in the form of welfare programs. Liberals know that such a man is a dedicated and formidable enemy of those who are determined to foist socialism upon the nations of the world.

 

  1. Liberals despise the suburbs as a manifestation of individual prosperity, private property ownership, and the independent family.

 

  1. Liberals say that they despise marriage and family because they are “patriarchal institutions” that oppress women and children. But the real reason they despise marriage and family values is because these institutions oppose, disapprove and limit promiscuity thus undermining one of the principal supports for Liberalism.

 

  1. Liberals are never satisfied with the current level of power they have gained over the lives of individuals. They are compelled, internally driven to control every thought and detail of human activity and they will never stop until they have condemned the entire world to live in a hellish slave camp, under the heel of a socialist bureaucratic boot otherwise known as One World Government.

 

  1. Liberals seek to control public schools, and force all children into them, in order to foster promiscuity and instill collectivist ideology into the minds and hearts of our children.

 

  1. Other diseases kill many millions more people, but Liberals are obsessed with Aids because it is a moral consequence of promiscuity.

 

  1. Liberals are more committed than conservatives because their politics is also their religion.

 

  1. Liberals are obsessed with demonstrating their putative “moral superiority.” Thus even though they live their lives without really helping anyone, the political activism they engage in is dedicated to convincing themselves that they are truly good people. Liberals are driven by the need to validate the unspoken assertion that “I care more than you do,” which is ironic in the extreme since none of the government programs liberals have designed can be shown to have an overall positive influence in our society.

 

  1. Mark this! Whenever a Liberal expresses concern “for the children,” invariably they are using and targeting children to expand their own power, promote promiscuity, advance collectivism and enlarge their personal income at the expense of the taxpayer.

 

  1. Because collectivist politics is their only morality, Liberals have no problem with deceit, oppression, or violence in their pursuit of collectivism.

 

  1. Liberals are elitists who exempt themselves from the oppressive rules they impose on the general population.

 

  1. Liberals howl if a homosexual transvestite or convicted felon is even slightly offended, but they openly bash Christians.

 

  1. Liberals dream of a return to a centralized, 1940’s urban environment. They would have us all ride a bus from a small, dirty, big city apartment to an 8-5 union job as it was in the old USSR. Perhaps now you will understand why Liberals support every form of “public transportation” whether buses or subways.

 

  1. Liberals believe that wealth is static. Liberals believe that anyone who makes money must be stealing it from someone else. Liberals do not understand that in a free market, wealth is created and is constantly expanding. Liberals do not understand the simple dictum that “A rising tide lifts all boats.” Liberals do not understand that the free market lifts the economic conditions of all men. Liberals do not understand that it is the creativity, ingenuity and hard work of the self-made millionaire’s who creates better products or a better service and thus a better life for all mankind. A rising tide does indeed, lift all boats.

 

  1. Liberals claim to be against violence, but make excuses for Liberals like Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Castro who murder and torture political dissidents. Liberals claim to be against violence, but they seek to disarm individuals and render them powerless before the thugs, thieves and murderer’s who rule the inner cities. Liberals claim to be against violence, but they are liars. Liberals only oppose violence when it fits their agenda, but they are perfectly willing to use violence to advance their agenda.

 

  1. Liberals have enormous compassion for criminal predators, but little for the victims.

 

  1. In the Liberal world, all problems stem from individualism, and all solutions are collective.

 

  1. Liberals believe that passing religious values to children is a form of child abuse.

An after thought by Olddog!

 http://famguardian.org

https://sedm.org/Forms/09-Procs/PathToFreedom.pdf

 Men can never escape being governed. Either they must govern themselves or they must submit to being governed by others. If from lawlessness or fickleness, from folly or self-indulgence, they refuse to govern themselves then most assuredly in the end they will have to be governed from the outside.

They can prevent the need of government from without only by showing they possess the power of government from within.

A sovereign cannot make excuses for his failures; a sovereign must accept the responsibility for the exercise of power that inheres in him; and where, as is true in our Republic, the people are sovereign, then the people must show a sober understanding and a sane and steadfast purpose if they are to preserve that orderly liberty upon which as a foundation every republic must rest.

Is America In The Throws Of A Nasty Divorce?

What begins with the trappings of good will, respect and love, can often disintegrate into petty differences, resentment and rising anger.  What starts out as mutual common ground in the building of a marriage, or the foundation for a country, can unravel if the common ground or the foundation is disturbed, distorted, or loses its meaning and significance.

When the spirit of love, or the spirit of freedom, that binds two people or a nation together, is fractured by forces that tear it asunder, marriages and nations begin to crumble.  And so it is, as the divide between Americans grows wider, as the principles of our freedom are eroded by the actions of those who seek more power over the masses and those who seek to live off the sweat of others, America is beginning to come apart at the seams, as the resentment towards opposing views becomes even more acrimonious.

Resentment turns to heated discussions.  Discussions turn to arguments and arguments turn to shouting and shouting can lead to violence.  This is the path that many a man and woman take as their union, once blessed by God, is shattered by their differences over culture, money, religion, politics, abnormal behavior, cheating, abandonment and sex.  This is the path our nation is taking, as cracks open wider in the foundation of our liberty.

Sometimes, marriages can be saved with counseling, but that only occurs when there exists the utmost good faith of the parties who seek reconciliation.  If there is no good faith, the union dies.  And thus, the union of states, our cherished America, is about to die, if good faith is absent and if there is no attempt to return it to the principles of freedom, upon which it was founded.

We have descended into a nation immersed in an arena of squabbles, some petty, some major.  We squabble over who gets their piece of the Treasury first and how much.  We fight like Hell to maintain “our share” and fight even harder to get more.  We fight with each other over race, religion and culture.  We squabble over going to war, even though foreign enemies camp outside our doors and send spies into our midst to kill us and severely damage our infrastructure and our economy, as happened on 9/11 and may happen with North Korea.  It will happen again, make no mistake.  It’s just a matter of time.  How prepared are we to defend against those attacks if we are divided as a people and as a nation?

For almost 100 years, we have let our government manipulate us while we looked the other way.  We have bought into the propaganda, hype, distortion and lies about the degree of compassion we owe to those less fortunate, with the degree decided by government and special interests.  We have bought into the fraud that is man-caused global warming.  We’ve almost succumbed to single-payer health care under Obama Care that shows no signs that it can be fixed, repealed, or replaced.  Way too many of us scramble to get “our share” of Nationalized Health Care, for free, that our government has shoved down the throats of the taxpayer, in spite of massive opposition and in spite of absolutely no constitutional governing authority to do so.  In allowing government to “buy” us off for a few pieces of silver, the chains that come with those few pieces subject us to self-inflicted slavery.

Any credible scientist knows that if you violate the laws of physics or chemistry, the violation often leads to unintended consequences, many times violent consequences.  But violating the foundation of our liberty, leads to enslavement and could have violent consequences.

A divided America now stands at the threshold of self-destruction from irreconcilable differences.  Primarily, those differences are in opposing ideologies and the apparent differences in what it means to be free.  Has America morphed into a Socialist Democracy and mob rule, or are we still the Constitutional Republic that was the design of our Founding Fathers?  That question is up for grabs.

As the opposing forces rise in amplitude and passion, the debates have turned to heated discussions, the discussions have turned to arguments, the arguments have turned to shouting and if something or someone doesn’t intervene between the opposing points of view, shouting will turn to violence, as it just did in Charlottesville, VA with the White Supremacists.  The voices on both sides are getting louder and louder.  Outrage and hate are replacing cool heads, logic, respect and objectivity.

But who will be the counselor that helps us back to reconciliation and the survival of the Union of States?  Who has the right words that will bring the two, very different sides together?

America has a very difficult choice right now.  It can either succumb to the siren call of the party of socialism, or it can reclaim its freedom via the party of liberty.  In the realm of opposing views, one side is usually more right and one is usually more wrong, depending on the perspective one has on whether freedom is the right way, or the common-good and the rights of the “collective” are the right way.  Are individual, unalienable rights, as granted to us by our creator and codified into the law of man under our Constitution, the path we should take, or should we repeal the Constitution and give more sway to the rights of the many as in a socialist society.   Millions of Americans, who have their hand out to government and most of those in government, believe the way of the collective is the right way?  If freedom is to be preserved, their way is the wrong way.

If amicable reconciliation is to occur, one side is going to have to back up more than the other side.  If those who seek freedom cannot convince those who seek the nanny state that they are wrong, our divorce is imminent.  If there are more people in the cart than there are those pulling the cart, the outcome is pre-ordained.  Those pulling the cart will either quit or jump on the cart until the cart is just too heavy to pull.

Divorces are painful, ugly and expensive.  If both sides are intractable, history has shown that violence can be the only outcome.  If violence is to occur, the final outcome of a free America is totally unpredictable and left to the vagaries of random probabilities.  Every means must be brought to bear to assure that violence does not happen, because another American revolution may not be guided by providence, as the first one may have been.

America is in the throws of a very painful divorce, due to irreconcilable differences.  Only time will tell whether we can heal our differences, or pay the horrendous price in outright civil war, as we were forced to do over 150 years ago.

If George Soros and his multiple socialist organizations prevail, if the news media continues to spout the socialist mantra and defends the Democrat Party, if Trump is brought down and the Republican Party disintegrates into bitter divisions, America has no chance.  If Trump, as flawed as he is, is impeached or rendered impotent by the Democrats re-claiming one or both Houses of Congress in 2018, you can kiss any hope of returning America to its roots as a Constitutional Republic for at least the next Century, if ever.  The next year may be America’s last chance for a course correction, away from socialism and towards unalienable rights and individual freedom.

A free and sovereign America rests in the hands of those who will defend liberty, at any cost.  A socialist America is all but assured, if those who desire freedom, sit on their hands and do nothing.

The question is, who will lead the charge?  Who has the message that will resonate with the masses and rally the troops?  But more importantly, how do we convince the other side that the path they travel always fails and leads to ruin, insolvency and slavery?  That is a tall order after over 100 years of the masses being indoctrinated in the Progressive ideology and now brainwashed into the cult of irrational, global environmentalism.

Olddogs Comments!

Any one who does not agree with Ron’s opinions above has surely had their head up their ass so long they are not qualified to have an opinion. The sovereignty of this Country will be lost forever if we do not stand up for it. I do not have a problem with helping people who cannot support themselves as long as they make every effort to control their inclinations to live outside the law. And that should be the responsibility of the Church. And if the Churches were teaching Biblical Doctrine instead of love everyone in-spite of their actions then the problem of the poor would be solved by the people instead of the government. A divided family or country cannot stand without a permanent commitment. That means everyone is pulling in the same direction. Everyone would be pulling in the same direction if the damn education system had done their job right. In spite of the corporate scumbags in the media industry! A National divorce will be the bloodiest conflict ever recorded because there is such a deep division in our basic concepts of humanity. GOOD JOB RON!!!

My Twentieth Anniversary

August 15th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/

Anniversary

By Anna Von Reitz

Twenty years ago on my Father’s birthday I took the plunge.  I had studied the issues for years and had decided that I would not “voluntarily” pay federal income taxes anymore.  That decision and many others like it would follow in a natural, organic process as my understanding grew. 

I recognized it for what it was — a foreign and out-of-control and out-of-compliance corporation run amok on our shores.  I faced the facts, and that was that.

I was feeling pretty good about the progress that has been made in this country over the past twenty years — in part because of my work and the work of thousands of other people like me, who decided that enough was enough, picked up an oar and began steering our “ship of state” off the reef, inching it slowly away from the looming federal disasters. 

Yep, I was feeling pretty perky.  And then, I got a message from people in Florida, moaning because they had just “discovered” that they had no justice available to them in the Florida Courts and that the judicial officers responsible even admitted it, brazenly, in public. 

This is not exactly news to anyone who has been more sentient than a rock, but I had thought that I had made the reasons for it perfectly clear by publishing half a dozen books and over 600 articles.  

These judicial officers in Florida claimed — rightly — that they took their oath to the Constitution of the United States.  

What, ho!  —-Nobody in Florida replied, “Yes, but our courts require that you take your oath to The Constitution for the united States of America.” (That is, with the word “for” underlined, the word “united” used as an adjective, and I guess, the words “of America” underlined, in boldface print, large font, screaming at you—-“Hey, look!”—-with arrows and blinking neon lights….) 

What do people think?   Please look at these two sets of words:  “United States” and “United States of America”.    Are they the same?  

Do you assume that “United States” is just an abbreviation of “United States of America”? 

They are two separate entities and always have been, yet millions of Americans are still missing the most basic facts — facts that should have been drummed into them in grade school, middle school, and high school.  

The “Constitution of the United States” is not “The Constitution of the United States of America” nor is it our actual constitution known as “The Constitution for the united States of America”.   

And yes, it matters which “constitution” these men take their oath to, because that is their law.  They are telling you as best they can who they are, who they work for, what kind of law they practice.  It is then up to you to decide whether or not you belong in their jurisdiction, and if not, to get out of their jurisdiction. 

Those Florida judicial officers are telling the people point blank— look, this is who we are (Federal Municipal Government Employees) and this is the “constitution” we are working under (and no, it’s not your constitution at all).  They couldn’t be any more up front about it.  

They went on to say that they had jurisdiction (at least SOME jurisdiction of SOME kind, somehow, somewhere) and that it came from the State of Florida Constitution. 

“State of Florida” means “State” apart from or other than or belonging to “Florida”——   So what does it mean when a man taking his oath to a foreign United States constitution tells you (additionally) that his jurisdiction comes from the “State of Florida Constitution”?  

Once again, these judicial officers are telling you point-blank-in-your-faces: we are here working under a foreign federated “state of state” municipal corporation constitution.  

The judicial officers in Florida are challenging people—-either stand up for who you are and clearly say that you are a native-born Floridian and that you live in Florida under the Florida Statehood Compact, or, let us bamboozle you into the subservient and profoundly disadvantageous political status of a “resident” of the “State of Florida” instead, thereby granting us jurisdiction over you and permission to fleece you blind, throw you in jail, or do whatever else we like to you and your property. 

Imagine that you are the son and heir of a wealthy plantation owner, but by some bizarre twist of fortune, you are instead mistaken for a runaway indentured servant, arrested, and have charges brought against the NAME of a foreign franchise operation-That is the situation you are in when you enter one of their courts.  You have to know who you are (and aren’t) and be able to prove it with adequate documentation. 

Left to their own devices these foreign judicial officers are always going to “presume” that you are a runaway peon, subject to their foreign municipal or territorial law, and they will treat you accordingly.  

That’s what those judicial officers in Florida are telling people, and the people are all upset and confused and angry—- but in fact, those judicial officers are being honest and they are doing the rest of us a favor by coming clean and clearly stating who they are and what kind of courts they are operating and what kind of law they are operating under.  

Now we can start operating with a full deck of facts instead of a lot of hare-brained assumptions.  Now we can take appropriate action to nail down ownership of our own names and copyrights.  Now we can get our political status properly recorded. Now we can get our jural assemblies up and operating.  Now we know where we stand and what we need to do to change all this. 

Hopefully. 

They come running to me, asking, “How do we get justice from these courts?” 

And the answer is— you don’t.  They aren’t your courts.  They don’t function under your law.  They are not designed to give you justice.  Hello?  These are foreign, private, corporate “courts” on our soil, here to ride herd on federal “citizens” who are merely “residing” here —-passing through on their way to some other duty station— and who are obligated to live under foreign territorial or municipal law. 

If you want justice and respect for your Constitution and its guarantees, you have to provide yourself with American Common Law Courts and you have to learn how to communicate with these foreign maritime and admiralty courts.  Most of all, you have to re-establish your identity as a free-born American standing on your native shore. 

After twenty years I still don’t know what it is about “self-governance” that is so bitterly hard to understand?   

If you want America to be the way America is supposed to be, then you have to get up off your duff and make it so.  

You have to correct your public records and political status.  

You have to find like-minded people to form jural assemblies and elect judges and land jurisdiction sheriffs and do all the other work necessary to launch American Common Law Courts in your county, then your state.

You don’t go to a Spanish Court in search of American justice, do you?   

So why go to a foreign  “United States” Court designed and operated by foreign powers, and expect them to know who you are and to administer the law you are heir to? 

All the powers delegated to the federal corporate government are international in nature.  They have no delegated power on the land, except to expedite interstate commerce.  Apart from zealously impersonating you so as to have a means to control you and an excuse for addressing you in their foreign courts, they have nothing to do with you or your state of the Union at all.  

In fact, they can’t raise a jury of your peers and technically, they aren’t even allowed to address you. 

As bad as this is, as wrong as it is, it has been this way since 1864 and has been much worse since 1938—-and none of it is likely to get better until everyone wakes up and does something about it.  Like now.  Today.  

Nothing very overt happened that day back in August 1998.  No fireworks.  No bands playing. It was a quiet dog-day in Big Lake, Alaska.  My elderly Siamese cat followed me from one side of the kitchen to the other like a dog, back and forth as I puttered around trying to dodge the awful Truth that hedged me slowly into a chair by the window.  

I didn’t want to know what I knew about the IRS or the government in general.  I wanted to believe in Mom and Apple Pie as much as anyone else ever did.  It was easier that way.  Comfortable.  Safe.  But it was also the life of a slave, a life of fear.  

It was the fear that finally got me.  

I knew I couldn’t spend my life being afraid. 

So, very quietly, very humbly, just me, myself, and I—– the decision was made and the die was cast and here I am, twenty years later.  At the time, I didn’t know exactly what I was going to do nor how I was going to do it.  

Most likely neither will you.  Just make the decision and start.

What Lawyers Are Practicing Today: (Hint: It’s NOT Law) and Hellstorm The Documentary

August 14th, 2017 by

https://newswithviews.com/what-lawyers-are-practicing-today-hint-its-not-law/

Read More Articles by Rev David Whitney

This week I witnessed an astonishing statement of tyranny in our land. That testimony was given by Jared DeMarinis, the Director of Candidacy and Campaign Finance for the Maryland State Board of Elections. He is one of the highest authorities on so-called election law in Maryland. He is responsible for the implementation of electoral policy as well as the interpretation of state candidacy and campaign finance laws.

Vide of the sermon

His testimony, essentially, was that the First Amendment is dead when it comes to any form of political speech – as the State Board of Elections define political speech.

So if you email five friends with your opinion regarding a candidate or sitting politician, the State Board of Elections claims that you must attach a tag line to that message which they approve of. In essence, they own and control that speech. A candidate emails a message to his circle of friends – “I pray you have a great day” – and even though you may ask, What is political about that?, they claim to own that as well. Make a post on social media regarding any political issue, and again, they claim to own and control that speech.

What are political issues? Abortion, the definition of marriage, what constitutes justice in society, what taxing powers are legitimate, and on and on the list goes. Wait a minute, doesn’t the Word of God address each and every one of these issues? So, a tyrannical, out-of-control institution called Maryland State Board of Elections claims to own and control any expression of God’s Word on issues which it deems political. If you were to tweet Leviticus 18:22, without even quoting the verse which states that sodomy is an abomination, it sounds like they would own that too; now that sodomy is a political issue. Satan has made them political issues, but they are moral issues above all. By the way, most important political issues were and are moral issues.  It is a tragedy of enormous importance that we-the-people have allowed our servants, the civil government, to attack and strip away our God-given right to freedom of speech.

Now this particular civil servant is a lawyer. Not just any lawyer; Mr. DeMarinis was adjunct professor of law at American University-Washington School of Law, where he taught a class on political and election law. So as a law professor one would expect that he had actually studied the law, the supreme law of the land; and therefore, he would have at least a semblance of understanding of the First Amendment. But it appeared to me that he was blissfully unaware of the First Amendment and the five God-given rights it protects. He was also obviously completely unconcerned about his own violation of his oath of office which he swore to Almighty God. But God will hold him accountable and there will be a reward of eternal damnation should he not repent of his egregious sin. I pray for his soul as it appears that he is a lawyer on the highway to hell. He certainly is not alone among those who practice law. There isn’t a shortage of lawyer jokes in our land, largely because many Americans are well aware of the destructive damage lawyers have done to our Constitutional Republic. It might lead one to ask a question parallel to what Christ’s disciples asked of Him. They asked, Can a rich man be saved? We might ask in our day, Can a lawyer be saved? The answer to both questions is the same. Yes. We know of at least one lawyer recorded in Scripture that was saved.

Titus 3:13 “Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them.”

Zenas was a Christian and a lawyer. It is also clear that he was a devoted disciple of Jesus Christ.

Jesus had some very sharp words for lawyers in His day.

Luke 11:46 “And He said, “Woe to you also, lawyers! For you load men with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.”

So, Jesus labels the lawyers of his day hypocrites; loading burdens on others that they will not lift themselves. Kind of like Congress requiring everyone to be in Obamacare, but giving themselves special subsidies to pay for their participation. I understand President Trump is working on changing that, but draining the swamp means making all the swamp creatures homeless, and they don’t tend to like that prospect.

Luke 11:52 “Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered.”

Here in verse 52 it is even worse. Not only were they refusing salvation, they were turning away and even hindering everyone they possibly could from traveling the narrow road that leads to eternal life. They themselves choose the road of damnation, and they wanted everyone damned with them. Does any of this criticism of the lawyers of Jesus’ day ring true today?

Consider what Paul teaches us in Galatians 3:24: “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.” So, if the purpose of the law is to teach us, it teaches us about our sinful violations of God’s Holy Law, and teaches us that God who governs the Universe is perfectly just and that His justice cannot sleep forever. It will teach us that a day of reckoning is coming for all mankind, and that God’s justice demands a retribution for sin. That retribution is eternal hell to all sinners. That’s what law is supposed to teach everyone in a society. Then the Gospel comes along as the Good News, that God in His abundant mercy has sent His Son to be our Savior, to pay the full penalty for our sins, to take the hell we deserved and complete that payment on the cross.

But, notice what happens when you take away the teaching purpose of the Law. The Gospel, instead of being the tremendous astonishing Good News that we can be saved from the eternal damnation we so justly deserved, it becomes Jesus wants to be your friend – will you check “like” on Facebook, or send Him a friend request? The Gospel is not truly the Gospel without the instructive power of the Law.

What has happened in our land to the Law? It began more than a century ago with the first Dean of Harvard Law School, Christopher Columbus Langdel. Langdel rejected the Biblical absolutes, and rejected the fact that God’s moral law is as fixed in the universe as fixed as the law of gravity. He began training whole generations of lawyers to promote the lie that Law evolves. That’s where it began. It has led to the current insanity where they claim they have redefined God’s Holy institution of marriage. When you reject God’s Law, then you are left to your own insanity, calling Law what is not Law, and pretending the Laws of the universe are completely different than they actually are. That’s insanity. So, Law schools today do not teach law. Lawyers today do not know what law is or where it comes from. They are taught the folly that people have a right to sodomy. But that begs the question, where do rights come from? Rights come from God and therefore you never have a right to do what is wrong, what is a violation of God’s Law. Therefore, you have no right to steal, no right to murder, no right to commit adultery, and no right to sodomy. These are not rights, they are wrongs. And a proper justice system punishes those who violate the God given rights of others and those who violate God’s Law in that limited realm where civil government is given the power of the sword by God.

Consider the evil done by the Supreme Court in 1973. By telling women they have permission to hire a contract killer to murder the baby God has created in their own wombs, the Supreme Court has led tens of millions of women to become accomplices to murder. The Supreme Court’s precedent has taught them that murdering their babies is a good thing, that they can not only get away with murder, but that it is such a good thing that the civil government will – at gun point – take money from other citizens in the land, forcing those citizens to pay for hiring the contract killer to conduct the murder. So instead of Law teaching people what sin is, and the terrible consequences of sin – eternal damnation – the lawyers in black teach the opposite and send millions to hell.

It is the same thing regarding divorce, sodomy, and redefining marriage – the Supremes teach that God’s Law is no longer valid, and that you can violate God’s Law freely without any fear of punishment in this life or eternal punishment in the lake of fire. The “law schools,” the lawyers and the courts in our land, are doing the exact same thing Jesus identified in His day:

Luke 11:52 “Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. [promoting instead ignorance, idiocy and insanity] You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered.”

Olddogs Comments!

While I certainty do not claim to be a good Christian, I do believe the Bible is our only anchor in this storm of lies and deceit and only a society that respects the Word of God can recognize the evil we are being subjected to. Those who vilify the Word of God will pay for their ignorance in a manner too terrible to describe. And speaking of ignorance, due to the media industry, Pastors who preach only entertainment, and government controlled schools many are on the path to damnation without even a hint of the agony ahead. Friends, what you do not know can be an agony lasting forever. I beg you to buy this book and read it several times.

Hellstorm The Documentary

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/08/14/hellstorm-the-documentary/

Paul Craig Roberts

Some readers reacted to my review of David Irving’s book about the Nuremberg showtrial of Germans during 1945-46 with the comment that Irving understates allied criminality. Several sent me links to a documentary made recently by Americans based on midwestern American Thomas Goodrich’s history, Hellstorm: The Death of Nazi Germany, 1944-47. https://www.amazon.com/Hellstorm-Death-Nazi-Germany-1944-1947/dp/1494775069

There are 147 customer reviews of the book on amazon.com and 75% of the reviews are 5 star. Evidently, not even Zionist trolls were able to bury the book.

Not much of this documentary has to be true in order to reach the conclusion that what the Americans, British, and above all the Soviets did to Germans during the war and in the war’s final days and, worse, after the war, dwarfs in its inhumanity and illegality everything the Nazis did. More Germans died during the two years after the war than died in fighting the Amerians and British during the war. Mass exterminations of Germans and systematic rape of German females as young as eight years old were going on during the Nuremberg trials. What happened to Germans fit the program for the genocide of Germany advocated by the Jewish US Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morganthau.

Nazi Germany is the most demonized entity in modern history, and the demonization continues. To whom did the killer bitch compare the Russian President in order to demonize him but to Hitler. Seventy-two years after the end of WW 2 Hollywood still produces movies that vilify Germany. Consequently, few historians have dared to write about what was done to Germans. But Thomas Goodrich did, and Kyle Hunt made a documentary from the book. Judging from the screen credits, many Americans were involved in producing the documentary. Little doubt but they have all been labeled “white supremacists.” (White supremacist is a curious term. Obama is partly black, but he declared the white supremacy doctrine of the neoonservatives when he said that Americans were the exceptional people and America was the indispensable country.”)

I watched it, and I can tell you that you will need to be emotionally and mentally strong to watch this documentary, not only because it will affront your belief in the goodness of your country but also because it forces you to confront unspeakable evil that cannot be blamed on Nazis.

Of course, the book and the documentary can be a hoax. The problem we face today is that although we know that the print and TV media and NPR are propaganda organs, so can be documentaries and information available on the Internet. I know a lot, but WW 2 was not a subject I studied closely even though I grew up in its aftermath. What do people born decades later know of it? Nothing but what they saw in movies in which Nazis are the ultimate evil.

In my lifetime I have watched truth dimimish. By and large scientists serve the government’s military programs and cannot speak out when the government lies without ending their careers. Economists serve Wall Street, the big banks, and the global corporations. Psychologists and anthropologists help Washington subdue its victim populations. Journalism serves the government’s lies. Medical doctors prescribe according to the pharmaceutical companies. Wherever you look, you see professionalism serving a material interest.

The question I ask myself is what material interest does the book and documentary serve? Nazi Germany has been dead and buried for 72 years. Indeed, Germany has not been an independent counry for 72 years and has no prospects of becoming one. Marine Le Pen is branded right-wing because she is for French sovereignty, but as some Europeans have said, the CIA would assassinate her before they would allow her to become president of France. Indeed, the former deputy director of the FBI recently said that the CIA was going to assassinate President Trump. http://thehill.com/homenews/media/346171-former-mueller-deputy-on-trump-government-is-going-to-kill-this-guy

Making peace with Russia is a massive threat to the military/security complex’s vast budget and power, and they are not going to allow it. Neither are they going to allow Marine Le Pen and the French voters to break up NATO and the EU in the name of French sovereignty, thereby threatening Washington’s power over Europe.

What powerful interest is served by Goodrich’s book and Hunt’s documentary?

Can we say it is a Russian plot to make themselves look far worst than Nazis?

Is it an Israeli plot to discredit themselves in order to discredit the goyim?

Clearly it is not a plot that would serve the military/security complex or Wall Street and the banks.

What other powerful interests are there?

Here is the link to the documentary:

As the Romans did to Carthage, Germany might not exist today had Washington not decided that Germany needed to be rebuilt as a barrier to communism and as a forward base for the Cold War against the Soviet Union.

Dear Friends, in this present day in history it takes a serious reader to understand how the whole world has been brain washed by the constant lies that have surrounded us from birth. You simply cannot waste your brain on entertainment in all it’s forms, because it will convince you that there is no truth. For your own sake you must learn to think by discussing or dealing with matters in a thoughtful or thought-provoking way, as opposed to in a superficial or merely entertaining manner.

The Anchor Baby Myth

August 13th, 2017 by

Mass-Immigration

The Constitution v Birthright Citizenship

“Born in other countries, yet believing you could be happy in this, our laws acknowledge, as they should do, your right to join us in society, conforming, as I doubt not you will do, to our established rules.”

Thomas Jefferson (1801)

Mass-Immigration

There is a raging political debate about immigration in the U.S., or more specifically about the consequences of illegal immigration. Solutions have been hotly contested and evaded for decades.

In the current election cycle, Donald Trump has reignited that debate. Trump rightly states, “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.” His mantra on the topic is, “They’ve got to go!”

Regardless of your opinion of Trump’s populist antics, making immigration a centerpiece of his presidential rhetoric has forced both Republicans and Democrats to clarify their positions on this issue — and not a minute too soon!

The current debate centers on whether or not to “repeal” birthright citizenship. But framing this argument with the word “repeal,” whether by legislation or constitutional amendment, implies that there is something in our Constitution or subsequent legislation that already affirms a right to birthright citizenship. No such provision exists, except as wholly misinterpreted by courts and propagated by politicians pandering for mostly Hispanic and Latino votes.

Note that in Jefferson’s words regarding immigration he specifies “our laws acknowledge … your right to join us” and the requirement that immigrants conform “to our established rules.”

But, as usual, “laws” and “rules” are now wholly ignored in favor of political expedience.

Mass-Immigration

What law was Jefferson referencing? Before addressing the current immigration fiasco, let’s revisit some fundamental constitutional Rule of Law in regard to immigration.

Our Constitution references immigration only in Section 1 of Article Two, noting, “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.” It was understood that “natural born” meant one born on U.S. soil prior to the enactment of our Constitution.

A year after our unanimously ratified Constitution superseded the Articles of Confederation, the term “natural born citizen” was defined in the first immigration legislation passed by Congress — the Naturalization Law of March 26, 1790.

Yes, defining legal immigration standards dates back to the earliest days of our Republic.

The 1790 Act stipulated immigrants had to be legal residents in the U.S. for two years prior to applying for citizenship. The Naturalization Act of 1795 superseded the Act of 1790 and required five years’ residence, and the Naturalization Act of 1798 increased that to 14 years’ residence.

That law also provided that “children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens: provided, that the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States.” In other words, if born on foreign soil, you also were extended rights of citizenship if your father was an established American citizen.

Fast-forward to the end of the War Between the States. Though slaves were in the U.S. “legally,” and thus “subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” they had no post-war assurance of any rights as citizens, much less equal rights.

Thus, the Civil Rights Act of 1866 affirmed citizenship for former slaves. But out of concern that some future legislature would revoke those rights, members of the Senate proposed the 14th Amendment, and submitted it for ratification by the States.

Section 1 of the 14th Amendment codified the full citizenship rights of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, stipulating, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

In a previous essay entitled Birthright Citizenship, I provided irrefutable evidence, in the very words of the 14th Amendment’s authors, that “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” clearly and plainly referred to those who were legal citizens. It did not and never has implied any legal standing for the children of illegal immigrants.

After World War II, there was a flood of illegal immigrants across our southern border. In 1954, Dwight Eisenhower launched “Operation Wetback,” and millions of those illegal aliens were rounded up and returned back to Mexico. Those deportations went on for almost a decade, until illegal immigration was reduced to a mere trickle.

But for the last three decades, illegal immigration has surged largely unabated.

There are now an estimated 11.3 million illegals in our country — notably, about 40% of whom arrived with legal visas but never left when their visas expired. More than eight million illegal immigrants hold jobs while more than nine million Americans are unemployed.

That notwithstanding, Barack Obama, in yet another violation of his Article II, Section 1, oath “to support and defend” our Constitution, has undermined enforcement of immigration laws in order to win the political support of ethnic groups associated with those who would otherwise be deported.

I have argued, however, that Obama’s amnesty proposals are mostly “smoke and mirrors,” because a larger and more critical Democrat constituency is composed of unionized workers and low-income Americans. The Left baits them with class warfare rhetoric centered on the issue of “living wages.” Illegal immigrants drive down “living wages.”

Mass-Immigration

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka says that, to win, the next Democrat presidential candidate must “run on a raising-wages agenda.” Allowing 10 million immigrants to compete for low-wage jobs is certainly not consistent with that agenda.

For evidence of Obama’s faux agenda, recall that in 2008 then president-elect Obama declared, “I can guarantee that we will have, in the first year, an immigration bill that I strongly support.” In 2009 and 2010, Obama’s Democratic Party controlled both the House and Senate, but his congressional Demos never passed an amnesty bill for him to sign.

Of course, a lot of the Republican promises about immigration have also been nothing more than smoke.

Today, conservatives are rightfully demanding meaningful immigration reform, which explains most of Trump’s grassroots appeal. Indeed, Beltway establishment types led by Speaker John Boehner and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell have produced nothing of substance to confront illegal immigration (unless you count the grand total of 36 miles of sufficient Mexican border fence that has been constructed).

The conservative debate centers on legitimate concerns about the burden of illegal immigrants, including the enormous cost of providing taxpayer-subsidized services (housing, schooling, medical care, incarceration), taking jobs from Americans, so-called “sanctuary cities” that, following Obama’s example, ignore federal laws, and the thriving drug, gang and violent crime surge being driven by illegal immigrants.

“Every single illegal alien that comes into the country [across the Mexican border] goes through the hands of a drug cartel,” notes agent Hector Garza, National Border Patrol Council president.

The murder of California native Kate Steinle in the “sanctuary city” of San Francisco by an illegal immigrant received substantial national attention. Her murderer had been released from jail by San Francisco authorities, after seven felony convictions and five deportations. San Francisco declared itself a safe haven for illegal immigrants in 1989 – but not so much for its citizens.

Kate Steinle’s murderer is only one of more than a million illegal aliens who have committed violent crimes, some 690,000 of whom were charged but have been released rather than deported and are now loose on the streets of more than 300 declared sanctuary cities.

Mass-Immigration

Our nation is so far removed from Rule of Law as it pertains to immigration that the Supreme Court is taking up the absurd question of whether illegal immigrants can be counted when determining legislative districts. In another era, the most basic level of common sense would have concluded, “Hell no, of course not!”

Now comes word from the Pew Hispanic Center that four out of five children of illegal aliens were born in this country, and it’s now estimated that one out of 10 births in the U.S. are “anchor babies.”

Fact is, while a clear majority of Americans do not support birthright citizenship, what matters is that our Constitution doesn’t support it either.

So what to do? Make the case and solve the problem.

First, Republicans must advocate for and enact legislation affirming that the 14th Amendment makes no birthright allowance. Our Constitution’s Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4 gives Congress the power to determine qualifications for citizenship, and Section 5 of the 14th Amendment does likewise. Start by amending Section 301 of the Immigration and Nationality Act to clarify those classes of individuals born in the United States who are not eligible for citizenship by virtue of birth.

Second, Republicans must re-invigorate an E-Verify system at the point of employment with severe penalties for violation of the law. As National Review’s Rich Lowry notes, “You need an E-Verify system to choke off illegal immigration at the point of employment, and if you actually do that, then it doesn’t really matter what you have at the border.” But the biggest obstacle to E-Verify is that a lot of employers want the low-cost labor pool, and if that dries up, so will their political donations. But even if some accommodation is made for temporary work permits as a compromise, E-Verify must come first.

Third, secure our borders. Construct barriers in those areas that are known crossing points — and authorize Border Patrol agents to enforce the law. As Ronald Reagan declared, “A nation without borders is not a nation.”

Fourth, expel illegal immigrants immediately rather than release them under the laughable pretext that they will show up later for their “deportation hearings.” They obviously are not going to show up for those hearings.

And last, Republican politicos need to embrace and energetically promote the fact that Liberty is colorblind — it’s not just a “white thing.” Essential Liberty transcends all racial, ethnic, gender and class distinctions, and it will appeal to all freedom-loving people if Republicans will articulate that timeless message.

On a final note, witnessing Obama’s catastrophic humanitarian crisis in the Middle East — both its impact on Europe and the fact that Obama is now proposing to take in more Syrian immigrants on top of 250,000+ Islamic migrants who already come to the U.S. annually — should generate a sense of urgency for ending the ruinous fallout from birthright citizenship and illegal immigration.

Why World War Three?

August 12th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/search?q=Why+World+War+

Three?&max-results=20&by-date=true

WW3

By Anna Von Reitz

Because it makes THEM money, for all the reasons I have enumerated many times before.  They get to use your money and more importantly, your sons and daughters as the gun fodder.  They get to blame you for the war.  And afterward, you have to pay for rebuilding the countries they damaged.  It’s perfect— for them. 

Not for you.  

Each possible war scenario offers them different advantages, but with the DOD in bankruptcy along with the rest of the UNITED STATES, they can’t afford to be choosy.  

They’ll take Iran or North Korea with equal glee.  Those two countries aren’t part of their central bank hegemony, so they hope to get rid of two of the very last-standing land jurisdiction governments (competitors) on Earth. Just like Libya. That’s a bonus on top of all the war profits.  

They’ll try to start an insurrection in the United States, too, so they would have an excuse to murder all of us.  Why?   (1) They avoid paying their priority creditors back for all the money they have loaned themselves out of our pockets; (2) They get to collect all the life-insurance money from the policies they have placed on each and every one of us; (3) They get to claim our land and homes and other possessions as “abandoned property” that once belonged to their “enemies” or which was “collateral damage”; (4) They get to charge the survivors for all this service they’ve provided; (5) They get to sell armaments to both sides and make loans to both sides that neither one will be able to pay back for decades afterward. 

So whether you win or lose, you lose. 

Wake up, children.  It’s Daylight in the Swamps!  

These are not nice people you are dealing with and they don’t have anyone’s best interests at heart, except their own.  They have no loyalty as employees and no common sense when it comes to their country, either.  

There is a lot of talk about military coups.  I hate to break it to everyone, but the military coup we are dealing with is 150 years old.  It happened when Lincoln placed the Grand Army of the Republic in charge and issued the Lieber Code in 1863.  The Army has been in control of the Territorial United States ever since and the Municipal United States run by the Congress has played patsy with them to make the swindle work ever since.  

And us?  The actual United States?  

We have been the great storehouse, the wealth repository, the raw material backing all their enterprises.  They have stolen from us and “hypothecated debt” against our assets to fund their activities and interference and military operations against other countries and people worldwide, right under our noses.

They haven’t even bothered to reward or enrich us for all these risks and sacrifices.  No, instead, they have benefited those colluding with them to create this situation: the banks, the British Crown, the British Monarch, and last but not least, the Vatican, which operates as a property management organization for the Holy See.  

As things stand, we are the Paramount Security Interest Holders and Priority Creditors in the bankruptcies of both the Municipal United States and the Territorial United States—-though they are trying their best to pretend that we are all still asleep, lost at sea, presumed dead.  

Slowly, by choking off money supplies, the rest of the world is hoping to starve the Beast to death.  This is made difficult as they have a vast crime network allowing them to make money from all the things that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms is supposed to police —- drugs and booze, tobacco and armaments — all the traditional wares of the pirates, oh, and don’t forget slavery and human trafficking.

They made slavery part of their national “constitution” back in 1868 and enshrined it permanently.  Private slave ownership was abolished, but public slave ownership (by the government corporations) got a huge boost; and then, they passed the so-called 14th Amendment and made a further tweak allowing them to enslave criminals—- with them in charge of defining criminality, of course. 

With 80 million statutory laws on the books, they can find a crime to fit anyone. They could convict Jesus Christ, who only had to overcome slightly more than six hundred laws.  

So here’s a thought—- the DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE that is supposed to be protecting you and your land is now under the control of Secondary Creditors of the Municipal bankruptcy.  The Department of Defense is likewise under the control of Secondary Creditors of the Territorial bankruptcy.  

Wouldn’t you like to know who those Secondary Creditors are, since you are the Priority Creditors and are actually the ones supposed to be calling the shots?  Who or what is usurping upon your authority at this point?  By definition, it can’t be the usual culprits, because they are all in bankruptcy.  

Enter Heather Ann Tucci-Jaraff, a lawyer for a former Fiscal Services investigation called—- appropriately enough — the Paradigm Project.  

Now, Heather is a Bar Attorney, so by definition she is a Federale.  Not one of us. 

So everything she does and says and promotes is for Federales — federal employees and dependents.  Not “the people”.  And if you follow the Pied Piper and apply for Treasury Direct Accounts and you aren’t in fact a Federale, you will get in trouble because you aren’t actually eligible for discharge of YOUR debts in bankruptcy. 

You are eligible for discharge of YOUR debts, but via a completely different route. You are eligible to claim back your actual birthright ESTATE from the Municipal Bankruptcy Slush Pile via identification of the heir (you) and probate action. They

 have to give back your name, your land, your home, your business — and all else that is yours that they have “borrowed”— unharmed.  

That’s according to your own law. 

So if all the Federales get is discharge of THEIR debts as bankrupts, what– you might ask— becomes of all the land and homes and names and copyrights and patents and other assets rightfully belonging to these “lost” Americans?   It all gets rolled into a gigantic global trust called the One People’s Public Trust.  

Read that— all your private property is seized and rolled into a global version of the Public Charitable Trust — the same method they have been using to “hold” and profit from the assets belonging to the “freed slaves” ever since the so-called Civil War.  They just won’t stop trying to defraud you and everyone else on Earth.  It’s one scheme after another, and at every step, they make you an “offer”. 

Sign up here and get all YOUR debts released!  (Never mention that those were never your debts in the first place, that you would be admitting to being a Federale or a Federal dependent) and that your actual assets would be seized and thrown into yet another “public trust” to be plundered. 

Sign up there and get defrauded some other way.  

These guys are the definition of crooked.  They worship Satan and they do so very diligently.  Every lie is a prayer, every false contract offer a sacrament.  

If they can herd you along the super highway to perdition, they will.  And they will promise any amount of “candy” to get you to go along like good little sheep instead of being forced to give you back what is actually yours—- your freedom and your assets.  

Just say no.  Don’t sign anything.  If they say, “It’s a government mandate! You must sign!”  Ask the important question— which government?  

And the next time someone starts talking about “the” Republic, please slap them for me?  A gentle little slap as you best think necessary to wake them up?  There is and never has been “a” Republic.  There are fifty “republican” states organized under statehood compacts occupying this part of the North American Continent. Fifty.  Not one.  

Those who are promoting “the” Republic are promoting yet another scheme and not telling the truth, obviously.  

You must wake up.  You must start thinking for yourselves.  You must undertake the responsibilities of self-government.  There is no other “safe” route out of this mess.  There are too many schemers out there ready to grab and plunder your inheritance.  You can’t just stand there like sheep and “let George do it”.  There is too much at stake.  

If you want your lawful government restored, you have to organize your local county and then your state government yourselves.  Nobody can do it for you.  You have to take it on, hold the meetings, and do the drill.  

The Michigan General Jural Assembly is here, ready to help you do what has to be done. I can’t say that it is easy or pleasant.  I can’t say that you will be richer than Midas at the end of the day.  I can’t say that you will be happy with what you find out about the past or that you will be cheerful about the circumstance, but you will have the pleasure of steering your own boat away from the reef and you will know what is going on, because you will be making it happen.  

The Michigan General Jural Assembly hosts a Thursday Night national call-in program.  The call in times and names and numbers for that and for their national hot-line (open four days a week) are posted on my website: www.annavonreitz.com and here it is again:  Nine o’clock Eastern Standard Time, call in number is: 1-712-770=4160.

By Anna Von Reitz

The Chapter 7 bankruptcy of most of the world’s municipal governments and the Chapter 11 bankruptcy of most of the world’s territorial governments is a domino effect. 

This primary funding source for the Territorial government services was provided by our ESTATES.  When our ESTATES which were being held and operated by the Municipal United States were subsumed into its Chapter 7 bankruptcy, they stopped producing income for the Territorial government. That, then, threw the Territorial government into Chapter 11.

Now you can see and grasp the chain reaction nature of the situation:

UNITED STATES “owns” and operates JOHN MICHAEL DOE estate as a franchise, the profit realized from JOHN MICHAEL DOE funds the USA, Inc.

So when the UNITED STATES goes into Chapter 7 liquidation, the funding for USA, Inc. stops, too.

The problem for good old John Michael Doe is that his estate should never have been mischaracterized as a franchise of the UNITED STATES in the first place, and he should not have his name or assets embroiled in a foreign bankruptcy.

So that’s where you all are and that’s what I and my Team are working to get you out of— a foreign corporate bankruptcy that actually has nothing to do with you.

The rats are bucking the inevitable, but the rest of the world knows the Truth.

Now imagine that you don’t know the value of anything on Earth, because nobody knows what the real debt is, how much money has been printed, or what the results of a free market valuation of commodities would be?

That’s what the GCR Committee has been wrestling with. 

Commodity markets have been manipulated and rigged for so long that there is no common sense basis for the valuation of anything.  You can’t even estimate the value of a pork belly in an open market, because this whole system has been corrupt for over a hundred years— but somehow, the GCR Committee is tasked with not only coming up with a total of supply of pork bellies, but a total of supply of printed pieces of paper needed to buy them, and then a current valuation complete with all the exchange rates. 

Ever had the impulse to run screaming into the bushes, merely thinking about solving a problem? 

That was my impulse when I first looked at that one. 

Saner people than I threw up their hands, shook their heads, stared at me with the whites of their eyes showing, and looked helpless—– nonetheless, there is a GCR Committee and they have worked hard and faithfully for many months and have done their best.  There is no doubt that there will be “adjustments” as actual market forces come into play and artificially low and high commodity prices fluctuate into a true value in the worldwide marketplace.

The same is true of money, because money is a commodity.  Most people have never been taught to think of it this way, but it’s time we all did so.  Money is a commodity like beans or hammers or gasoline engines.  It is sensitive to supply and demand.  It is subject to quality considerations.  It gets counterfeited like Gucci handbags.

When the revaluation kicks off you can bet your teeth and liver that some chaos will reign as the value of money and commercial paper gets readjusted along with everything else. 

There will be upsets as the world markets for nearly everything sort themselves out. Take what you can spare and make sure you have some extra food, water, medications you need, toilet paper, coffee, etc. so that you and your family are not caught off-guard waiting in long lines or otherwise getting hysterical simply because you don’t have a small extra supply of things you need. 

The worst should be over in a month or two at most, but it looks like it will be hitting soon, so take a little pre-caution now.

Finally, you have noticed that there are an awful lot of generals in Trump’s Administration.  There is a reason for that.  The U.S. Army has been the de facto Territorial government since 1863.  They have been responsible for safeguarding our money and have been functioning under the Lieber Code ever since Lincoln.

Now that  the Territorial government is in Chapter 11, the real brass has shown up at the White House to ride herd on things. Nothing to wonder about there, except—- how did you guys ever @#$@$% so bad in the first place?

That remains a question that needs an answer. 

Everyone— sit tight and stay calm and have faith.  There are a lot of good people worldwide and the truth is the truth.  The Land of Oz is fading away, but our own beloved homeland is coming into view.  Just tap together the heels of your ruby slippers, close your eyes, and……

We are in need of funding to keep the law team going on all this.  The “government” we are inheriting is broke and stumbling along under trusteeship and until things get sorted out and the funds we are owed are made available, we are on our own to make things work and bring forward the claims of the American states and people. 

Please send what you can now, if you can.  I don’t expect anyone to give up funds that they actually need to buy and put aside food and other things as I suggested above, but if you have “extra” that you can invest in America’s future, we need you to come forward.  We cannot possibly do what we are doing without help. 

I am still Chief Cook and Bottle Washer for this whole operation, so, my PayPal is the same as my email: avannavon@gmail.com  And as ever, I gladly accept checks and money orders and cash for the law team and bank team and all the other projects we have going at:  Anna Maria Riezinger, c/o Post Office Box 520994, Big Lake, Alaska 99652. 

Thanks to all of you who have contributed in the past, we have made it to the Finish Line, but we still have a yard or two to go.

In Memoriam
Edmund Cadwalader Evans
A sound economist, one of
the few who understand
the nature of the state

Be it or be it not true that Man is shapend in iniquity and conceived in sin, it is unquestionably true that Government is begotten of aggression, and by aggression. — Herbert Spencer, 1850.

This is the gravest danger that today threatens civilization: State intervention, the absorption of all spontaneous social effort by the State; that is to say, of spontaneous historical action, which in the long-run sustains, nourishes and impels human destinies. — Jose Ortega y Gasset, 1922.

It [the State] has taken on a vast mass of new duties and responsibilities; it has spread out its powers until they penetrate to every act of the citizen, however secret; it has begun to throw around its operations the high dignity and impeccability of a State religion; its agents become a separate and superior caste, with authority to bind and loose, and their thumbs in every pot. But it still remains, as it was in the beginning, the common enemy of all well-disposed, industrious and decent men. — Henry L. Mencken, 1926.

PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION

When OUR ENEMY, THE STATE appeared in 1935, its literary merit rather than its philosophic content attracted attention to it. The times were not ripe for an acceptance of its predictions, still less for the argument on which these predictions were based. Faith in traditional frontier individualism had not yet been shaken by the course of events. Against this faith the argument that the same economic forces which in all times and in all nations drive toward the ascendancy of political power at the expense of social power were in operation here made little headway. That is, the feeling that “it cannot happen here” was too difficult a hurdle for the book to overcome.

By the time the first edition had run out, the development of public affairs gave the argument of the book ample testimony. In less than a decade it was evident to many Americans that their country is not immune from the philosophy which had captured European thinking. The times were proving Mr. Nock’s thesis, and by irresistable word-of-mouth advertising a demand for the book began to manifest itself just when it was no longer available. And the plates had been put to war purposes.

In 1943 he had a second edition in mind. I talked with him several times about it, urging him to elaborate on the economic ideas, since these, it seemed to me, were inadequately developed for the reader with a limited knowledge of political economy. He agreed that this ought to be done, but in a separate book, or in a second part of his book, and suggested that I try my hand at it. Nothing came of the matter because of the war. He died on August 19, 1945.

This volume is an exact duplication of the first edition. He intended to make some slight changes, principally, as he told me, in the substitution of current illustrations for those which might carry less weight with the younger reader. As for the sequel stressing economics, this will have to be done. At any rate, OUR ENEMY THE STATE needs no support.

THE STATE

The Death of the Republic Revisited

August 9th, 2017 by

https://ppjg.me/2010/04/28/the-death-of-the-republic-revisited/

by: Gary Rea (c)copyright 2010 All Rights Reserved

In my article, How the American Republic Died at Philadelphia in 1787 I showed, with quotes from the Federalists and Anti-Federalists, alike, how our original constitution, the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union (1781) was illegally scrapped and replaced with a new Constitution (1787), which formed a wholly new government – one which was deliberately designed to grow into the fascistic behemoth we see today. Here, I will go into the various ingenious ways in which the Federalists designed the Constitution to achieve that end, all while making it appear as though our liberties were safeguarded.

First, though, I think it is necessary to point out exactly how and why this subterfuge was illegal, in the first place. The best way of doing so is to simply examine the wording of Article VIII, Section 1 of the Articles of Confederation, which says:

“And the Articles of this Confederation shall be inviolably observed by every state, and the union shall be perpetual; nor shall any alteration at any time hereafter be made in any of them; unless such alteration be agreed to in a Congress of the United States, and be afterwards confirmed by the legislatures of every state.”

What this makes abundantly clear is that none of the provisions for legally revising the Articles were followed, in the first place, let alone any provisions for replacement of our founding document with a wholly new government. In fact, the Philadelphia convention of 1787 was convened in violation of Article VIII, Section 1’s requirement that the revision process begin with Congress  – the unicameral Congress created by the Articles. But, to add to that violation, there was also no unanimous consent of the state legislatures, as was also required for revision of the Articles. Thus the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 and all the state ratifying conventions that followed from it, as well as the document and the government created by them (i.e., the Federalists’ Constitution) were completely illegal and should not be considered valid or binding as a result.

Most critics of our government, as it exists today, focus upon the Executive and Legislative branches, as this is where the most activity lies, however, the fact is that the Supreme Court’s role is often overlooked and this could not have been foreseen by the Anti-Federalists of 1787 because the Supreme Court’s powers had not yet been defined and would not be until 1790, with the Judiciary Act.

In fact, it was the Supreme Court – which hadn’t existed at all under the Articles of Confederation – which enabled the beginnings of tyranny and has seen to it that it continues unabated to this day. With its justices appointed by the President and approved by the Senate (but not the House of Representatives) for life terms and the Supreme Court’s sole ability to interpret the very document that created and supposedly binds it, the stage was set for capricious subterfuge.

It was this, as well as other loopholes in the Constitution, that defeated the so-called “checks and balances” the Federalists slickly tauted as the reason for trusting this new government. While it was said that each of the three branches of government would act as checks against each other’s actions, the truth was ignored that all three branches constituted one entity, the federal government, and that these branches were each provided – by the Constitution – with several means of collusion that combine to thwart any perceived checks and balances.

As Kenneth W. Royce says in his book, Hologram of Liberty: The Constitution’s Shocking Alliance with Big Government, “For many years, the Supreme Court went practically unnoticed in its cramped, cold basement room of the Capitol. Unnoticed and uncontrolled. That was the idea.

To quote Archibald Cox, from his book, The Court and the Constitution (1987), p. 45:

“No other country has given its courts such extraordinary power. Not Britain, where an act of Parliament binds the courts. Not India, where there is a written constitution and a Supreme Court but where constitutional rights can be suspended by the government’s declaration of an emergency. Not even West Germany Or Ireland, where the power of judicial review is established but exercised on a narrower scale.

The President is elected. The Congress is elected. State legislators and Governors are elected. Supreme Court justices are not elected; they are appointed for life. So are other federal judges. Yet we give unelected justices and judges a power – called judicial review – under which they may nullify some acts of an elected President and the elected representatives of the people assembled in Congress or the legislatures of the states. In exercising the power of judicial review the Court answers, case by case, the great questions left [purposely] open by the framers concerning both their ingenious plan of government and the guarantees of  individual liberty.”

Back to Royce, who says, “One particularly alarming area of the Constitution had been the ominously incomplete Article III regarding the judiciary. In one brief sentence, Section 1 gave Congress a virtual blank slate to create any system of federal courts they chose.”

Indeed, Article III, Section 1 reads:

“The judicial power of the United States shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.”

This leaves the number of justices unspecified and Congress toyed with this for years, going from six to five to seven to nine to ten to seven again and back to nine justices, for one thing.

In a letter, dated January 17, 1788, Anti-Federalist Melancton Smith expressed his fears about the Supreme Court:

“It appears to me [the judiciary] is so framed as to clinch all the other powers, and to extend them in a silent and imperceptible manner to any thing and everything, while the Court who are vested with these powers are totally independent, uncontrollable and not amenable to any other power in any decisions they may make.” My emphasis.

In other words, even in 1788 (two years before the Supreme Court’s powers were established by Congress), the year after the Constitution was ratified, the Anti-Federalists had realized that there were no checks on the Supreme Court’s powers whatsoever. Once appointed, the justices could, basically, do anything they want to, overriding the decisions made by the President, the Congress, the States and the people. With this power established in their hands, they can make decisions that protect the excesses of not only themselves, but the President and the Congress, as well – and they have often done so.

All of these excessive Supreme Court powers were the creation of the new bi-cameral Congress, in the Judiciary Act of 1789, which shows us the lack of any real checks on the powers of Congress in the early days of the federal government. With the Supreme Court thus set up by Congress, it was – and is – possible to make an end run around any other checks and balances by collusion between the Court and the Congress or the Court and the President.

Furthermore, the Judiciary Act of 1789 wasn’t even legitimate, to begin with. As Royce points out, “…all legislative acts in the eleven months before a functioning Supreme Court were automatically invalid, because there was no judicial body to check Congress until 3 February 1790. This would make the Judiciary Act of 1789, its courts, and all their decisions void.”

In other words, prior to February 3, 1789, when Congress created the Supreme Court and the system of federal courts, there was no Judicial Branch in existence, except as vaguely prescribed by the Constitution, thus an unrestrained Presidency and Congress existed. It was this complete lack of any checks on Congress that enabled it to get away with creating a federal court system, appointed – not elected – for life and with powers that only it could exercise and which could never be overridden, repealed or restrained in any way. Thus, it is not the Presidency or the Congress that is the most fearful and uncontrollable despotic element within the federal government, but the Supreme Court.

Dear President Putin 2.0 — A Message From the Actual USA

August 8th, 2017 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/search?q=Dear+President+Putin+2.0+

—+A+Message+From+the+Actual+USA+


By Anna Von Reitz

We read with alarm and interest the announcement that the “Russian Sanctions” have spurred you to invoke a Trade War with the United States. 

Please remember that the United States is not the same as the unincorporated United States of America, and that we are not broke and not obligated to pay their debts above and beyond those few service charges that they can legitimately charge to our accounts. We are in fact the Paramount Security Interest Holders and Priority Creditors of the entire rest of the world.

Also please remember that the population of the United States is very small, not more than a few million total and concentrated mostly in the ten square miles of the District of Columbia.  The rest of us are Americans and not “US Citizens” of any stripe, so please leave us out of your calculations and plans for reprisals.

We have suffered enough as innocent Third Parties and hold everyone responsible for the continued practice of lumping us under the “US” banner and failing to observe the facts.

The American people have been viciously misrepresented and defrauded by the United States and the British Crown, the British Monarch, and the various Popes, especially since 1860 when the Great Fraud began. 

There are those of us smart enough to observe that creating a wedge between the Americans and the Russians is a practical and philosophical goal of the monarchists and Papists who have sought to keep apart two countries devoted to the welfare of working men and common people as opposed to elites.

It is in their interests to keep America and Russia at each other’s throats, but it is not an advantage to either one of us. Their “divide and conquer” strategy in this respect is all too apparent and also too self-interested and consistent throughout history. 

Come now, Mr. Putin. You are a smart man.  You know that your quarrels are with a few rotten apples who merely pretend to represent us. Now that we have made other arrangements to maintain our constitutional form of government, it’s time to deal with us and forget about them or call them what they are—- British and Dutch puppets who have done enough damage to the American people.

The United States is now and always has been under the direction of the British Monarch, so if you want to fight with someone over this recent outrage, we suggest that you target London, preferably Fleet Street, and leave us out of it.

The further fact is that the United States is tiny, useless, and defended only by the Puerto Rican Navy and the Home Guard on Guam, it’s broke, in bankruptcy, and basically not worth spitting on. 

The British Monarchy which has preyed upon and used and abused Puerto Rico as a base for its piracy against us for the better part of a century and a half, has tossed the island and its people away like a used nose-rag, which really shows the world what to think and what to expect of any partnership with them. Zero sympathy for the people of Puerto Rico, zero sense of responsibility for what they created and foisted off on the Puerto Ricans.

These are the same people who created and enforced the vicious British Raj on India, and used the enslavement of the British people to provide the collateral to finance this brutal domination of the Indian Subcontinent, the same racists who considered “brown men” to be eternally subhuman, the same arrogant, mean, ugly men who kept the Indian people from harvesting salt from the sea at gun point and bayonet. 

No doubt you are thinking that the Dutch East India heirs who promoted the USA, Inc., are just as bad or worse— and we tend to agree.  However, we are not them.  We are the unincorporated United States of America.  The actual government of this country.

Please take the time to realize that Russia and the rest of the world and even many of the American people have been bamboozled by the con men who have usurped and trespassed upon us, but in truth and in fact, the US is not America, and we are no longer responsible for them or their debts or their war-mongering foreign policies.

We have restored our lawful government and it is divorced from the British hegemony and the Dutch slavers alike, independent, unincorporated, and free at last.  Please take the time to consider what we are saying and if you are bent upon destroying “the United States” kindly bypass the rest of us on the way to Washington, DC.  We don’t have a dog in the fight and don’t fancy suffering any more nonsense.  We have no Russian Sanctions.  We are not bound by the US Congress, and perhaps more importantly, we are not bound by the Bankruptcy Trustees named by Secondary Creditors of the UNITED STATES or the USA, Inc. and we do not assume their debts. Thank you, sincerely—- the American states and people, and their actual  government, which is not now and never has been incorporated.

The Cost Of Apathy and The Courts Fear Of The Bible

August 7th, 2017 by

https://newswithviews.com/the-cost-of-apathy/

Read More Articles by Roger Anghis

What we are seeing not just in Washington, D.C. but across the nation is the results of fifty plus years of apathy of the American people.  Our Founders intended for the American people to stay engaged in politics of this nation.  For many decades they did just that.  At our founding the world had no government that consisted of the population of the nation chosen by the people of that nation.  To allow the people to govern themselves and change their leaders at regular intervals was the envy of the world.  For the first time in man’s history if a people did not like those who governed them, they could peacefully and non-violently replace them.  When, at the end of George Washington’s second term and he stepped down and the office of the president went to the newly elected John Adams, the world witnessed for the first time a change of a ruler without bloodshed.  America is the only nation explicitly founded upon the principles of human equality and natural rights or as our Founders referred to it, God given rights. [1]

What we as Americans must understand is our government, which is a republic not a democracy, requires attention by the people.  It is not a fool proof system.  It requires attention by people of a high moral character.  Benjamin Franklin warned that we could use the laws of this country to destroy it from the inside. He warned: “When we the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.” Little by little we have allowed the government to take our tax dollars and through a welfare system, “vote themselves money”.  People have learned to play the welfare system to the max.  A person who knows how to make it work can make almost double the average working person without ever having to work for it. Muslim immigrants are coming here with two, three and four wives and immediately going on welfare.  Even though in America you cannot have more than one wife, we allow this type of immigration.  But it goes far beyond that today.  The American taxpayer financially supports multitudes of foreign governments’ even governments that hate us!  If pressed to prove that this is something that the Constitution allows the Federal government to do, Congress would not be able to do so.

This has occurred because the general population no longer holds the politicians feet to the fire in requiring them to govern within the confines of the Constitution. Far too many members of Congress pay no attention to the confines of the Constitution when writing laws.  Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA) stated in a town hall meeting during the Obama administration that Congress pays no attention to the Constitution when writing laws: Pete Stark said during a townhall meeting that Congress could do basically whatever it wanted to do. He didn’t say anything about working within the framework of the Constitution, Amendments or Constitutional Conventions. He implied they could pass laws willy nilly regardless if the conflicted with the Constitution or its’ Amendments. He should never have been elected & should have been voted out long ago. [2] Why do we have members of congress that pay no attention to the Constitution?  We the people have not paid attention to what they are doing in D.C.! In the last election Congress had an approval rating of 11% but we returned over 90% of them to D.C. George Washington set the example of two terms.  We have people that have been in D.C. for 40 plus years.  Because of this we have people that are what is called the ‘establishment’.  Nothing gets done in D.C. unless they say it’s OK.  We should have new people going there every election.  Allowing 40 year carriers encourages corruptness and we have it big time.  George Washington warned about the corruption of those with political ambition: “No compact among men … can be pronounced everlasting and inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no wall of words, that no mound of parchment can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other.”

When we have people like the last president, Barrack Obama, in office we see that it was not the best interest of the American people that was his #1 priority.  It was his and his Party’s political power that was his #1 concern.  The Democrats rigged the primary so that Hillary would win the primary.  They openly admitted that fact.  Congress has done nothing about that. In an interview with Bloomberg News George Soros sated that Hillary would win because it was  a ‘done deal’.  In recent weeks, Democrats have attempted to paint Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump as a lunatic for claiming that the election is going to be rigged in favor of his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

Even Republican politicians and former politicians are telling Trump to knock off such talk.

But, as usual, Trump’s shrewdness and defiance of standard political decorum – in which the “opposition” party merely rolls over and surrenders in the face of Democratic pressure – is winning the day.

None other than billionaire investor and longtime Democratic supporter George Soros has said that the fix is literally in for the election, in favor of Clinton – no matter how much of the popular vote, and from which battleground states, Trump captures.

As reported by Top Right News and other outlets, during a recent interview with Bloomberg News, Soros – a Democrat mega-donor – openly admitted that Trump will win the popular vote in a “landslide.”

However, he said that none of that would matter, because a President Hillary Clinton is already a “done deal.”[3]  The only way Hillary winning could be a done deal is voter fraud and corruption.

Noah Webster warned us: “If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted…” This began a long time ago.  Woodrow Wilson was a racist dirtbag that pushed America to the point where our economy is no longer controlled by America but foreign banks.  It is called The Federal Reserve.  Even Patrick Henry warned us: Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is impossible that a nation of infidels or idolaters should be a nation of freemen. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.

We’ve come to the brink of losing our great nation.  The destruction of America has been in the works for over 100 years and has happened so slowly that most people don’t even see it happening. Will it eventually happen?  I’m afraid yes simply because of apathy.  We no longer teach the greatness of America and unless the younger generation is educated on that subject, they will never know.  Thomas Jefferson stated: “The time to guard against corruption and tyranny, is before they shall have gotten hold on us. It is better to keep the wolf out of the fold, than to trust to drawing his teeth and talons after he shall have entered.” We missed our opportunity to stop it but we can slow it down.

The Courts Fear Of The Bible

https://newswithviews.com/the-courts-fear-of-the-bible/

On the radio show I participate in on Friday mornings, my fellow commentators and I were answering the question, “What were the worst Supreme Court decisions of all time?” Now that is a difficult question because there are so many bad decisions to choose from – Dred Scott, Roe, v. Wade, Obergefell and there are multiple hundreds of others. As I only had time to comment on three decisions I was not able to include Abington v. Schempp where the Supremes handed down their opinion that said Bible reading in the government run schools was henceforth and forever banned.

Video of the sermon

The law suit which led to this decision was an attack upon the Law of the State of Pennsylvania which required that ten Bible verses were to be read aloud each day. The readings were without interpretation, comment or questions asked. Furthermore any student could request to be excused from that reading. So it was voluntary. Oddly the Shempp girl whose parents filed the law suit, never asked to be excused from the reading of God’s Word and instead she even volunteered on several occasions to read the Scripture passages for her class.

The result of the Abington v. Schempp opinion is that the schools have sadly complied as if the Supreme Court makes law – which they do not. Any opinion they render is their opinion, they have no enforcement power whatsoever, and the other two branches as well as the other three levels of civil government are under no obligation to obey the edicts of these Supremes.

By the way, if they were banning all religion from government run schools, which is what they claim the the three decisions on Prayer and Bible reading cases of 1963 accomplished, then there is something strange going on. While the Bible is forbidden, the Koran is not. In fact it is being taught and children are being indoctrinated in Islam all over our country.

Public Broadcasting Service with our tax dollars has actually developed a whole curriculum for government schools that indoctrinates students in Islam. The Christian Action Network sent a letter demanding DOE “cease its Islamic education program for the nation’s public schools,” CAN states that students and teachers are being encouraged to promote Islamic beliefs through the LearningMedia website, a site operated by the Public Broadcasting Service that provides free learning materials to students and teachers. PBS is supported by taxpayers. “Much of this so-called educational material is nothing more than indoctrinating students into Islamic religious beliefs, duties and actions,” said Martin Mawyer, president of CAN. …A review of the LearningMedia website by The Blaze found at least six lengthy lesson plans focused on teaching students about various aspects of Islam, including “The Five Pillars of Islam,” “The Haj: Journey to Mecca” and “Salat: Prayer in Muslim Life.” A similar search for lesson plans covering Christianity… uncovered zero results, …on the LearningMedia website.

In “Salat: Prayer in Muslim Life,” students are tasked with watching videos and reading articles about Muslims’ prayer life, including learning about Islamic prayer movements and postures. One question asks students after watching detailed instructions about Islamic prayer, “How do you think it feels to know that millions of other people are praying with you, just like you, everyday?” Another task instructs teachers, “Encourage students to make connections between their own traditions and salat especially in regard to community building and shared traditions.” In “The Five Pillars of Islam,” students are taught about foundational Islamic beliefs and told to construct a poster on the “five pillars.” Teachers are instructed to have students meet with Muslim leaders in the community. “If possible, have your students meet with Muslims in your community to learn about their religious practices and views,” states the lesson plan. “Interview Muslims who have participated in Hajj, and talk to Muslims during the month of Ramadan to learn about fasting and almsgiving. Contact religious leaders or scholars to learn more about prayer and belief.”[1]

It appears that while the Bible has been outlawed, the Koran is taking its place. Why would any culture choose the Koran over the Bible? Because the moral demands of the Koran are quite easily met while the demands of God’s Word go very deep and into every crevice of our lives. To put it simply the good Mohammedan emulates Mohamed while the good Christian emulates Jesus Christ. Consider what Mohamed actually did – he committed murder, massacring a whole village of Jews, committed adultery and pedophilia, His his youngest victim just age nine. Mohamed practiced and advocated torture and lived off the practice of stealing and pillaging caravans in the desert. He showed no mercy to the villages and town he attacked. We could go for sometime discussing the atrocities he committed. And therefore it should surprise no one that those who seek to emulate him do many of the same things even today.

But not so with Jesus, not only did He never commit any such heinous atrocities, He clearly called all men to the highest moral standards, the standards of God’s Holy Law given to us in the Bible. Even the most self-righteous men of His day were enraged by His statements for He implied that they were not as righteous as they claimed to be.

When we look into the Bible we find the highest moral standards which exist – but that makes perfect sense as these are the commands of the One True God.

The mischief of the Supremes knows no bounds. “In the case, Edwards v. Aguillard (1987), judges ruled that a Louisiana Law which required public schools to teach evolution and Creationism side by side VIOLATED the Constitution’s prohibition on the “establishment of religion”.

So, because Creation has to do with GOD, though it is a FACT, it cannot be taught to your children. An empty theory by an atheist, on the other hand, is PREFERRED by the Government to be taught to your children as “fact”….America’s first Schoolmaster, Noah Webster, said that “Education is USELESS without the Holy BIBLE. The Bible was America’s BASIC textbook in ALL fields. God’s Word, contained in the Bible, has furnished ALL necessary rules to direct our conduct.”[2]

We are told in 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” So we understand that there is no part of the Bible that is extraneous, secondary or to be set aside. Each and every word in the Word of God is profitable.

Wisdom comes from the Fear of the Lord and that comes from reading and studying God’s Word. A Supreme Court that does not fear God is a ship of fools. It is no wonder then that they consistently make such awful decisions.

The WAR on CASH is actually a war on liberty and privacy

CASHby Jayson Veley

There is a growing effort among the nation’s political elites and top government officials to transform America into a cashless society (Related: The EU is the global blueprint for a cashless society). Just like virtually everything else promoted by the federal government, such as more spending on the welfare state, universal healthcare, and the implementation of stricter gun laws, the push for a cashless society has nothing to do with what’s best for the American people, despite claims to the contrary. The fact of the matter is that political elites on both the right and the left have an insatiable appetite for power and control over the people they were elected to represent. Their quest to create a totalitarian society can be compared to a drug addict’s quest to obtain heroin – once they get a taste of it, they never stop wanting more.

The transition into a cashless society is just one of the many ways that political elites feed this hunger for control. As Dylan Charles writes in an article published on The Daily Sheeple, “To some, convenience and trendiness are the greatest selling points of a digital currency, but in order to make it obligatory for everyone, there must be a public safety threat that is acting in our best interests when they force us to accept a digital currency.”

Indeed, the argument that something is in the best interests of the American people is one that is heard quite often in modern day politics. They tell us that limiting our Second Amendment right to bear arms is “in our best interests” because it will supposedly save innocent lives. They tell us that the excessive regulation of the private sector is “in our best interests” because it will stop “greedy” corporations from hoarding the nation’s wealth. They tell us that granting amnesty to illegal aliens and bringing in refugees by the thousands is “in our best interest” because it will help us become a more diverse and compassionate country.

With regards to currency, they tell us that a cashless society would also be in the best interests of the American people, when in reality it would not. A digital monetary system would inevitably call for oversight from the federal government, which would open the door to a wide array of potential privacy and liberty issues. By using cash, Americans have the ability to make financial transactions without the government knowing where that money is going or what it is being spent on. However, if cash were no longer an option, then every single transaction you make could be tracked and recorded, which entirely defeats the purpose of a free society.

In India, this push for a cashless society is already well underway. Back in December, Amitabh Kant, CEO of the India policy think tank NITI Ayog, argued that the government was attempting to enact penalties for those who use cash in order to encourage digital transactions. “The government has already provided 11 different incentives (to encourage digital transactions),” he said. “In the long term, the government has intention to make cash handling more expensive and digital transaction extremely cheap.”

While Kant did not explicitly state that the Indian government was encouraging its people to embrace digital transactions as a means of accumulating more power and control, it’s important to keep in mind that neither do most other governments that are also pushing for a cashless society. Needless to say, it would be a tough sell to come straight out and let the people know that a digitalized monetary system would empower the political elites while destroying the liberty and privacy rights of the people. So instead they work quietly and under the radar, maintaining a subtle yet relentless push to one day establish a totalitarian state.

Olddogs Comments!

As things stand now, we have a world wide population totally supportive of their own demise, thus is the price of the ignorant belief that politicians are working for the people!

Geopolitical Tensions Are Designed To Distract The Public From Economic Decline

August 3rd, 2017 by

http://www.alt-market.com/articles/3243-geopolitical-tensions-are-designed-to-distract-the-public-from-economic-decline

Economic DeclineBy Brandon Smith

Tracking geopolitical and fiscal developments over the past several years is a bit like watching a slow motion train wreck; you know exactly what the consequences of the events will be, you try to warn people as much as possible, but, ultimately, you cannot reverse the disaster. The disaster has for all intents and purposes already happened. What we are witnessing is the aftermath as a forgone conclusion.

This is why whenever someone asks me as an economic and political analyst “when the collapse is going to happen,” I have to shake my head in bewilderment. The “collapse” is here now. It is done. It is a historical fact. It’s just that not many people have the eyes to see it yet, primarily because they are hyper-focused on all the wrong things.

For many centuries now, elitists in power have understood the value of geopolitical distraction as a tool for controlling the masses. If you examine the underlying motivations behind the majority of wars between nations regardless of the era, you will in most cases discover that the power brokers on both sides tend to be rather friendly with each other. In fact, monarchies and oligarchies are historically notorious for fabricating diplomatic tensions and conflicts in order to force populations back under their control.  That is to say, wars and other man-made conflicts give the citizenry something to react to, instead of hunting down the establishment cabal like they should.

One of the greatest illusions of human progress is the notion that most conflicts happen at random; that there are two sides and that those sides are fighting over ideological differences. In truth, most conflicts have nothing to do with ideological differences between governments and financial oligarchs. The REAL target of these conflicts is the people — or, to be more precise, the psychology of the people. Conflicts are often engineered in order to affect a particular change within the minds of the masses or to distract them from other dangers or solutions.

These scenarios are taken at face value by many because, unfortunately, most people have short attention spans. If an observer in 2007 was to be transported 10 years into the future, in 2017 they would find a world in dramatic and horrifying decline. The shock would be overwhelming. Ask an observer today what they think of the state of the world and they might not see much to be concerned about. The human mind becomes easily acclimated to crisis over time. We are resilient in this way, but also weak, because we forget the way things should be in order to deal with the way things are.

We only seem to take drastic actions to improve our situation after we have already hit rock bottom. The year of 2017 has so far been host to some extreme accelerations in crisis and collapse, and rock bottom is not looking too far away anymore.

Four trigger points around the globe concern me greatly, not because I think they will necessarily lead to a disaster any greater than the one we are already living in, but because they have the potential to effectively distract the public from more serious concerns. I am of course talking about the powder keg issues of Syria, North Korea, China vs. India, as well as Russia.

First, let’s be clear, the ongoing destabilization of our economy should be the primary concern of every person on the planet, most particularly those in the West. We are living within the husk of a dead fiscal system, reanimated with the voodoo of central bank stimulus, but only for a limited time. Economic decline is the greatest threat to cultural longevity as well as to human freedom. Even nuclear war could not hold a candle to the terror of financial disaster, because at least in a nuclear war the slate is wiped clean for establishment elites as well as the normal population. At least, in the event of nuclear war, the elites face anarchy just like we do.

In an economic crisis, the establishment maintains a certain level of control and thus its arsenal of toys – Including biometric surveillance grids, standing military support in the form of martial law, as well as the delusion among the populace that things “might go back to the way they were before” given enough time and patience.

There will be no nuclear war.  Perhaps a limited nuclear event, but not a global exchange. There will be no moment of apocalypse as it is commonly displayed in Hollywood films. However, we WILL witness lesser conflicts as a means to turn our gaze away from the economy itself.

To give a quick summary of the economy so far from an American perspective, I must first remind readers of the constant misinformation that is often used by government institutions and central banks in order to hide negative data. For example, recovery proponents will sometimes cite the supposed “decline” in the number of people registered for food stamp (SNAP) benefits from the 47 million peak in 2013 to 42 million recipients today. Yet, they rarely mention the fact that much of this decline is directly attributed to states now enforcing work requirements instead of simply handing out SNAP cards like Mardi Gras beads.

They also still, for some reason, like to cite the decline in the unemployment rate to 4.4 percent while continuing to ignore the fact that 95 million working age Americans are no longer counted as unemployed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. They argue that this is an entirely acceptable condition, even though it is unprecedented, because “home surveys” from the BLS claim that most of these people “do not really want to work.” These utterly ambiguous surveys leave open ended data to be interpreted essentially however the BLS wants to interpret it. Meaning, if they want to label millions of people as “disinterested” in employment, they can and will regardless of whether this is true or not.

Retail store closures have tripled so far this year, with 8,600 stores projected to close in total in 2017. This far surpasses the previous record of 6,163 stores in 2008 at the onset of the credit crisis.

This incredible implosion in brick and mortar business is often blamed on the rise of internet retail, or the “Amazon effect.” This is yet another lie. Total e-commerce sales only accounted for 8.5 percent of total U.S. retail sales in the first quarter of 2017 according to the commerce department. This means that internet retail is nowhere near large enough to account for the considerable loss in standard retail business. Thus, we must look to the stagnation in consumer spending to explain the situation.

Auto sales continue their steady decline in 2017 as the short lived boom now faces death as ARM-style loans turn over and new buyers become scarce.

U.S. home ownership rates have collapsed since 2007. More households are renting than at any time in the past 50 years.

U.S. household debt has now hit levels not seen since 2008, just before the credit crisis.

Those looking for government spending to save the day should probably look elsewhere. Nearly 75 percent of every tax dollar goes towards non-productive spending on the part of government.

I could go on and on — it is simply undeniable that nearly every sector of the U.S. economy is in steady decline compared to pre-2008 levels. This instability in the fundamentals will eventually weigh down and crash stock markets, bond markets, currency markets, etc. Such markets are the last vestige of the U.S. economy still giving the appearance of health.

So, there will come a time, probably sooner rather than later, when the piper will have to be paid and someone will have to take the blame for our fiscal non-recovery. The international banks and central banks are certainly not going to volunteer for this even though they are the real perpetrators behind our incessant financial rot. But how do they avoid accepting responsibility?

First, by setting the stage for another scapegoat. As I warned for months before the 2016 election, Donald Trump is the perfect target for a redirection of blame for a market crash. He has even been avidly attempting to take credit for the current market bubble, making it easier for the banks to lay blame in his lap when the entire edifice crumbles.

Second, by warping public focus away from the economic collapse altogether and presenting them with a seemingly more dire threat.

In Syria, this has developed into potential conflict with the Syrian government, Iran and Russia. The establishment could at any moment initiate an attempt at regime change. Not necessarily with the intent to actually unseat Bashar al-Assad, but with the intent to create as much chaos as is necessary to terrify the unwitting citizenry.  While Donald Trump has been recently credited with “ending the regime change program” in Syria by ending the CIA training and funding pipeline to “moderate rebels”, this by no means equals an end to the plan to unseat Assad.  ISIS has moved west into Europe, and now direct action against Assad by western governments is more probable.  The Turkish government recently leaked the locations of multiple US bases within Syria, indicating that troops will remain on the ground and that the fractured country will continue on the same path of instability.

The next and most likely scenario for distraction is North Korea. With North Korea’s latest ICBM missile test, the perceived threat to the U.S. is now complete. The idea of North Korea striking the heart of America with a nuclear weapon is enough for many people to rationalize U.S. strike operations. That said, an invasion on the part of the U.S. makes little sense. Any strike by North Korea would be met with immediate nuclear annihilation; meaning a ground invasion to “prevent” an attack is unnecessary and might actually provoke a nuclear response rather than defuse one. Of course, it is likely that the goal in North Korea is not to prevent a nuclear event, but to once again catalyze chaos and confusion while the global economy and more importantly the U.S. economy sinks further into oblivion.

The US government has just issued a travel ban to North Korea starting September 1st.  They have asked all Americans already visiting the country to leave immediately.

Next, Russian tensions are reaching a new level, as the U.S. Senate has passed new sanctions based on nothing but fabricated hearsay, and Donald Trump proves me right once again with his signature on the same sanctions, calling the legislation “flawed” while at the same time displaying overt cooperation with the establishment agenda. The Russian response has so far been to expel hundreds of U.S. diplomats from their country, and warn that the sanctions constitute the beginning of a “trade war”.

My readers know well that according to the evidence I view the East/West conflict to be farcical and theatrical, but this does not mean there will not be real-world consequences to the “little people” caught in the engineered crossfire. I believe this will culminate not in a shooting war, but in an economic war. While the international financiers constructed our bubble economy and will benefit from its failure, it will be eastern nations (and Trump) that receive much of the blame for the destruction of these bubbles.

Finally, an uncomfortable level of discord has been sparked the past month between India and China, both nuclear powers, over a border dispute in a remote valley connecting India to its ally, Bhutan.  My feeling is that this is leading to diplomatic breakdown, but not necessarily an open war.  Unfortunately, the trigger point stands ready to be exploited by globalists any time they need greater distraction.  And, to be sure, a war between two of the world’s largest economies would wreak absolute havoc and provide an excellent diversion for a fiscal crash already set in motion by international banks.

I do not see the timing of heightened geopolitical tensions in 2017 as coincidental. It appears to me that these events are perfectly organized with maximum distraction in mind as we hit the top of perhaps the most massive stock and bond bubbles in modern history. The effectiveness of the smoke and mirrors will depend on the ability of liberty proponents to keep our analytical teeth sunk into the jugular of the establishment elite, as well as our ability to remind the public that these conspirators are the true criminals behind our national and international pain. The more extreme the geopolitical disaster, the more frightened people will become and the harder it will be for us to do our job. Knowing the level of difficulty involved in preventing the terror and madness of the mob, it is not a struggle I look forward to in the slightest.

Government Has American’s Conned Six Ways From Sunday

August 2nd, 2017 by

https://newswithviews.com/government-has-americans-conned-six-ways-from-sunday/

REBELLIONRead More Articles by Ron Ewart

By Ron Ewart

The environmental obsession to wean the planet off of fossil fuels has blown up into an insanity all its own.  Next to man-caused global warming (climate change) the deadly game that governments have played to convince people to disconnect themselves from the wonders of efficient crude oil using the force of government, is the biggest ruse every perpetrated on the masses since the dawn of civilization.

From climate change, to ethanol made out of corn, to wind and solar energy and now to electric cars, these con games have escalated into a full-blown racketeering enterprise where the rich and politicians get richer and the people get poorer …. from a bald-faced lie.  Americans especially have been played for suckers because most of these “games” that government and the environmentalists are playing have a second purpose ….. wealth re-distribution to the rest of the world.  That was and is what the Paris Climate Accord was all about.  Why do you suppose Europe was all for it and moaned and groaned when Trump pulled the plug on the Accord?  Europe and the other 192 UN countries want American dollars ….. for free.  Trump’s action is probably one of the most sane things an American president has done in decades.

However, before we delve into wind and solar energy, let’s first dump all over the electric car.  A known source describes it quite openly, albeit with some over statements.

“Ever since the advent of electric cars, the REAL cost per mile of those things has never been discussed.  All you ever heard was the MPG in terms of gasoline, with nary a mention of the cost of electricity to run it.”

“At a neighborhood BBQ I was talking to a neighbor, a BC Hydro executive, I asked him how that renewable thing was doing.  He laughed, then got serious. If you really intend to adopt electric vehicles, he pointed out, you have to face certain realities.  For example, a home charging system for a Tesla requires a 75-amp service. The average house is equipped with 100-amp service.  On our small street (approximately 25 homes), the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than 3 houses with a single Tesla, each.  For even half the homes to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly over-loaded.”

“This is the elephant in the room with electric vehicles.  Our residential infrastructure cannot bear the load. So as our genius elected officials promote this nonsense, not only are we being urged to buy these things and replace our reliable, cheap generating systems with expensive, new windmills and solar cells, but we will also have to renovate our entire transportation delivery system!  This latter “investment” will not be revealed until we’re so far down this dead-end road that it will be presented with an ‘OOPS!’ and a shrug.”

“If you want to argue with a green person over cars that are eco-friendly, just read the following.  If you ARE a green person, read it anyway. It’s enlightening.”

“Eric test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors, and he writes, ‘For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.’  Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery.  So, the range including the 9-gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles.”

“It will take you 4-1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.”

“According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity.  It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery.  The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity.  I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh.  16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery.  $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery.  Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile.”

(Note:  This is where the over statements come in.  Other sources show much less in costs per KWH than does this person and battery charge times appear to average around 4 hours, as compared to a five-minute fill up at your local gas station.  Nevertheless, if you are driving across country do you have time to wait four hours for each charge?  Ludicrous!)

“The gasoline-powered car costs anywhere from $25,000 to $40,000.  The Chevy Volt cost is in the high range of those numbers.   Nevertheless, the American Government wants loyal Americans not to do the math, but buy an electric car that costs considerably more to run, and takes three times longer to drive across the country.  And let’s not forget the $7,500 subsidy of your tax money that subsidizes every purchaser of an electric car.  As of December 2016, 542,000 electric cars have been purchased in America.  At $7,500 per car, that amounts to over $4 Billion of your money being spent to subsidize electric cars because they can’t stand on their own and very few customers will buy the expensive electric cars without the subsidy.  Calculate the $4 Billion subsidy into the cost to run an electric car.  It comes to around 50 cents per mile.”

“Then there is enormously expensive deep-cycle battery.  It may last three years!  The lithium electric car batteries can cost anywhere from $500 to $650 each.  Total replacement of a battery pack can run well over $3,000.”

The more electric cars on the road the greater the energy demand on current generating capacity (that includes fossil fuel generation) and increased loads on the grid, even though most urban charging would be at night in residential settings. That’s great for single-family homeowners, but what does the apartment dweller use to charge his electric car.

With electric cars, all the environmentalists and the government are doing is to exchange one form of efficient energy (gasoline) for another form of energy, electricity.  Both forms of energy create CO2.

Environmentalists have stopped all hydroelectric generation and have slowed nuclear and coal-fired power plants to a trickle.  Wind and solar are grossly inefficient as compared to other energy sources and require government subsidies and storage capacity for low or no wind and sun energy.  Many power plants must stay on line to cover the energy loss when wind and solar drop off the grid.  It takes time to fire up a power plant from a cold start.

We won’t go into ethanol from corn.  It mostly keeps the State of Iowa in the chips and sucks up millions of bushels of corn (a food source) and agricultural land every year, not to mention the cost in fossil fuels to refine corn into ethanol.  This is just another environmental boondoggle that costs more money than the benefits derived from it.

Here are the major energy sources and percent shares of U.S. electricity generation at utility-scale facilities in 2016.

Natural gas = 33.8%
Coal = 30.4%
Nuclear = 19.7%
Renewables (total) = 14.9%
Hydropower = 6.5%
Wind = 5.6%
Biomass = 1.5%
Solar  = 0.9%
Geothermal = 0.4%
Other = 1.2%

Wind power is only 5.6% of the total and solar is under 1%.  Just how are you going to replace fossil fuels, like natural gas and coal, with wind and solar energy?  You can’t!  Then, if you wipe out coal, (30.4%) as the environmentalists and government want to do, we suddenly find 330 million Americans living with constant brown outs and rationed energy like they do in North Korea.

We would be derelict if we did not mention one of the greatest national and international cons of all time, man-caused global warming, the name changed by the climate alarmists to “climate change” to dupe the naive’ public.  Of course the climate changes!

Fortunately, this international conspiracy climate nonsense is going to be challenged by a “red team” being assembled by the Trump Administration and Scott Pruitt, Secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), along with a team from the Heartland Institute. The Heartland Institute continues to publish reports challenging the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other climate scientists, which it began eight years ago. The group has produced four volumes of “Climate Change Reconsidered,” with a fifth coming out later this year.  We have also assembled many credible articles challenging the IPCC climate model predictions on the NARLO website.

What we have described here is just a drop in the bucket to the other con games being perpetrated on the American people by government.  There is the Constitution con.  There is the representative government con.  There is the debt and deficit con.  There is the Federal Reserve con.  There is the IRS con.  There is the health care con.  There is the public education con.  There is the illegal immigration con.  There is the social experiments con.  There is the political correctness con.  There is the multi-culturalism con and the cons go on and on and on.

So you see ladies and gentlemen, you are being led around by the nose and herded into neat little corrals like cattle, by Democrats and Progressives and their loyal associates, national and international radical environmentalists, socialists, central bankers and the one-world-order crowd.  And if you were hoping that Trump and the Republicans would clear up this hopelessly corrupt mess, you are living inside a bubble that is about to burst.   YOU THE PEOPLE aren’t YOU THE PEOPLE any more and maybe you never have been.

Sure Americans can change it, if there were enough of them that cared and were willing to risk it all to throw a monkey wrench into the current, heavily entrenched political “System” (some call it the Deep State) that would shut it down so that we could start over.   (See “The ‘System’ – Impenetrable, Inflexible and Un-Yielding!”)  But to be successful, it would take a powerful, charismatic leader with a “give me liberty or give me death” agenda and millions of loyal Americans willing to join him (or her), along with a large bank full of $100 bills. 

Remember!  Government fears the people, only when there are millions of them and they act in unison for a common purpose.  Right now, there is no charismatic leader, there are no millions of dedicated and united Americans to join him, there is no liberty agenda and there isn’t enough money to fund more than a token effort, which would be put down post haste by government forces.  Trump will try but he will be thwarted every step of the way by the powerful forces of the “System.”  To beat all the “cons” that are being foisted on a naive’ public by government (the “System”) you have to attack it from the outside because those on the inside have no incentive whatsoever to change it.

The “idea” of liberty that arose in 1776 only resonated with the colonials because of the heavy hand of a tyrannical British government that did not want part of its empire to secede and was willing to punctuate its authority with brute force.  The colonials challenged that brute force and surprisingly won, against all odds.

But today, what most people don’t realize is that the tyranny of the British Empire in 1776 is a fraction of the tyranny of the current American government.  Instead of punctuating the American government’s authority by brute force, it does it by the explosion and complication of the “rule of law” and the police enforcement thereof.  It also does it by propaganda, cons, myths, distortions and outright lies.  Remember Obama Care? “You can keep your doctor and your insurance.”   The fact is, government, at all levels, has lost all credibility and cannot be trusted and should therefore be resisted by all means possible.  Sadly, most Americans have such a fear of government resistance is the farthest thing from their minds.

Yes, we could “FIX” America.  We have even laid out an action and funding plan to do it and we could accomplish it in under ten years.  We would rip the hide of off local and state government.  We would accomplish at the local level what Trump is trying to do at the national level.  We would expose the rampant corruption and the government con games, un-elect corrupt politicians, repeal unconstitutional laws and stop new laws and rules, with less than 35,000 souls.  We call the plan ORDCA.  But alas, our plan takes lots of money and investing in liberty just isn’t in vogue these days.  Consequently, we are forced to fight this battle with the limited efforts of the National Association of Rural Landowners.

Olddogs Comments!

Do you ever read anything that makes you want to jump up and down and yell YEA RON, or many other authors who have their head out of their ass and are AWARE OF THE SHIT HOLE OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME? Do you often imagine twenty million people standing in front of the White House yelling for blood?

If not, then you personally are a piece of shit!

Ron is only one of the thousands of REAL AMERICANS who have the intelligence to see the cloud of tyranny hanging over this country, so let me ask you, why in the hell you don’t support them and re-publish everything they write? Are you too chicken-shit to speak up? Are you totally un-aware that this kind of ANGER is now socially acceptable?

Anarchy in America: Shot Down Like Dogs in the Street

 Anarchy

By John W. Whitehead

Things are falling apart. How much longer we can sustain the fiction that we live in a constitutional republic, I cannot say, but anarchy is being loosed upon the nation.

We are witnessing the unraveling of the American dream one injustice at a time.

Day after day, the government’s crimes against the citizenry grow more egregious, more treacherous and more tragic. The death toll is mounting. The carnage is heartbreaking. The public’s faith in the government to do its job—which is to protect our freedoms—is deteriorating.

With alarming regularity, unarmed men, women, children and even pets are being gunned down by police who shoot first and ask questions later, and all the government does is shrug and promise to do better.

Things are not getting better.

Justine Damond is dead. The 40-year-old yoga instructor was shot and killed by Minneapolis police, allegedly because they were startled by a loud noise just as she approached their patrol car.

Richard Ferretti is dead. The 52-year-old chef was shot and killed by Philadelphia police while trying to find a parking spot.

Jordan Edwards is dead. The 15-year-old was sitting in the passenger seat of a car driving away from a house party when Dallas police, claiming to have heard gunshots, smashed in the window of the moving car and shot the teenager in the head. No weapons were found.

In every one of these scenarios, police could have resorted to less lethal tactics.

They could have acted with reason and calculation instead of reacting with a killer instinct.

They could have attempted to de-escalate and defuse whatever perceived “threat” caused them to fear for their lives enough to react with lethal force.

That police instead chose to fatally resolve these encounters by using their guns on fellow citizens speaks volumes about what is wrong with policing in America today, where police officers are being dressed in the trappings of war, drilled in the deadly art of combat, and trained to look upon “every individual they interact with as an armed threat and every situation as a deadly force encounter in the making.”

Remember, to a hammer, all the world looks like a nail.

We’re not just getting hammered, however.

We’re getting killed, execution-style.

All the individuals who have been shot and killed by police—fired at three and four and five times in a split second—have already been tried, found guilty and sentenced to death. And in that split second of deciding whether to shoot and where to aim, the nation’s police officers have appointed themselves judge, jury and executioner over their fellow citizens.

In this way, we’re seen as nothing more than animals and treated as such.

In fact, we’re being gunned down like dogs.

The Department of Justice estimates that at least 25 dogs are killed by police every day.

Here’s the point: when you train police to shoot first and ask questions later—whether it’s a family pet, a child with a toy gun, or an old man with a cane—they’re going to shoot to kill.

This is the fallout from teaching police to assume the worst-case scenario and react with fear to anything that poses the slightest threat (imagined or real). This is what comes from teaching police to view themselves as soldiers on a battlefield and those they’re supposed to serve as enemy combatants. This is the end result of a lopsided criminal justice system that fails to hold the government and its agents accountable for misconduct.

Whether you’re talking about police shooting dogs or citizens, the mindset is the same: a rush to violence, abuse of power, fear for officer safety, poor training in how to de-escalate a situation, and general carelessness.

This is the same mindset that sees nothing wrong with American citizens being subjected to roadside strip searches, forcible blood draws, invasive surveillance, secret government experiments, and other morally reprehensible tactics.

Unfortunately, this is a mindset that is flourishing within the corporate-controlled, military-driven American police state.

This is no longer a debate over good cops and bad cops. It’s a tug-of-war between the constitutional republic America’s founders intended and the police state we are fast becoming.

So how do we fix what’s broken, stop the senseless shootings and bring about lasting reform?

For starters, stop with the scare tactics. Despite the propaganda being peddled by the government and police unions, police today experience less on-the-job fatalities than they ever have historically.

Second, level the playing field. While police are entitled to every protection afforded under the law, the same as any other citizen, they should not be afforded any special privileges.

Third, require that police officers be trained in non-lethal tactics. Train police in non-lethal force, crisis intervention training, de-escalation techniques, and how to respect their fellow citizens’ constitutional rights?

Fourth, ditch the quasi-military obsession. With police agencies dressing like the military in camouflage and armor, training with the military, using military weapons, riding around in armored vehicles, recruiting military veterans, and even boasting military titles, one would be hard pressed to distinguish between the two. Still, as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it’s our job to make sure that we can distinguish between the two, and that means keeping the police in their place as civilians—non-military citizens—who are entrusted with protecting our rights.

Fifth, demilitarize. There are many examples of countries where police are not armed and dangerous, and they are no worse off for it. Indeed, their crime rates are low and their police officers are trained to view every citizen as precious.

Sixth, stop making taxpayers pay for police abuses. Some communities are trying to require police to carry their own professional liability insurance. The logic is that if police had to pay out of pocket for their own wrongdoing, they might be more cautious and less inclined to shoot first and ask questions later.

Seventh, support due process for everyone, not just the people in your circle. After all, you could be the next person who gets shot by a police officer for moving the wrong way during a traffic stop, running the wrong way in the vicinity of a police officer, or defending yourself against a home invasion when the police show up at the wrong address in the middle of the night.

Fixing this problem will not be easy, but there are a few things that we can be sure of: America should not be a battlefield. Police officers are not soldiers.

And “We the People: are not the enemy.
