Lesser consumption of animal products is necessary to save the world from the worst impacts of climate change, UN report says

A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change, a UN report said today.
As the global population surges towards a predicted 9.1 billion people by 2050, western tastes for diets rich in meat and dairy products are unsustainable, says the report from United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) international panel of sustainable resource management.
It says: “Impacts from agriculture are expected to increase substantially due to population growth increasing consumption of animal products. Unlike fossil fuels, it is difficult to look for alternatives: people have to eat. A substantial reduction of impacts would only be possible with a substantial worldwide diet change, away from animal products.”
Professor Edgar Hertwich, the lead author of the report, said: “Animal products cause more damage than [producing] construction minerals such as sand or cement, plastics or metals. Biomass and crops for animals are as damaging as [burning] fossil fuels.”
The recommendation follows advice last year that a vegetarian diet was better for the planet from Lord Nicholas Stern, former adviser to the Labour government on the economics of climate change. Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chair of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has also urged people to observe one meat-free day a week to curb carbon emissions.
The panel of experts ranked products, resources, economic activities and transport according to their environmental impacts. Agriculture was on a par with fossil fuel consumption because both rise rapidly with increased economic growth, they said.
Ernst von Weizsaecker, an environmental scientist who co-chaired the panel, said: “Rising affluence is triggering a shift in diets towards meat and dairy products – livestock now consumes much of the world’s crops and by inference a great deal of freshwater, fertilisers and pesticides.”
Both energy and agriculture need to be “decoupled” from economic growth because environmental impacts rise roughly 80% with a doubling of income, the report found.
Achim Steiner, the UN under-secretary general and executive director of the UNEP, said: “Decoupling growth from environmental degradation is the number one challenge facing governments in a world of rising numbers of people, rising incomes, rising consumption demands and the persistent challenge of poverty alleviation.”
The panel, which drew on numerous studies including the Millennium ecosystem assessment, cites the following pressures on the environment as priorities for governments around the world: climate change, habitat change, wasteful use of nitrogen and phosphorus in fertilisers, over-exploitation of fisheries, forests and other resources, invasive species, unsafe drinking water and sanitation, lead exposure, urban air pollution and occupational exposure to particulate matter.
Agriculture, particularly meat and dairy products, accounts for 70% of global freshwater consumption, 38% of the total land use and 19% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, says the report, which has been launched to coincide with UN World Environment day on Saturday.
Last year the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation said that food production would have to increase globally by 70% by 2050 to feed the world’s surging population. The panel says that efficiency gains in agriculture will be overwhelmed by the expected population growth.
Prof Hertwich, who is also the director of the industrial ecology programme at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, said that developing countries – where much of this population growth will take place – must not follow the western world’s pattern of increasing consumption: “Developing countries should not follow our model. But it’s up to us to develop the technologies in, say, renewable energy or irrigation methods.”
Please be sure to read the next article about meat replacement.
Do you have any idea how this slop will affect human regeneration?
Are their lies that much eraser to believe?

One of my favorite quotations comes from Thomas Pynchon: “If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers.” Our world is in the mess it is in today because most of us have internalized the fine art of asking the wrong questions.
Contrary to the thinking that would have us believe that the conflict, violence, tyranny, and destructiveness that permeates modern society is the result of “bad” or “hateful” people, disparities in wealth, or lack of education, all of our social problems are the direct consequence of a general failure to respect the inviolability of one another’s property interests!
I begin my Property classes with the question: “do you own yourself?” Most of my students eagerly nod their heads in the affirmative, until I warn them that, by the time we finish examining this question at the end of the year, they will find their answer most troubling, whatever it may be today. “If you do own yourself, then why do you allow the state to control your life and other property interests? And if you answer that you do not own yourself, then what possible objection can you raise to anything that the state may do to you?” We then proceed to an examination of the case of Dred Scott v. Sandford.
The question of whether Dred Scott was a self-owning individual, or the property of another, is the same question at the core of the debate on abortion. Is the fetus a self-owning person, or an extension of the property boundaries of the mother? The same property analysis can be used to distinguish “victimizing” from “victimless” crimes: murder, rape, arson, burglary, battery, theft, and the like, are victimizing crimes because someone’s property boundaries were violated. In a victimless crime, by contrast, no trespass to a property interest occurs. If one pursues the substance of the “issues” that make up political and legal debates today, one always finds a property question at stake: is person “x” entitled to make decisions over what is his, or will the state restrain his decision-making in some way? Regulating what people can and cannot put into their bodies, or how they are to conduct their business or social activities, or how they are to educate their children, are all centered around property questions.
“Property” is not simply some social invention, like Emily Post’s guide to etiquette, but a way of describing conditions that are essential to all living things. Every living thing must occupy space and consume energy from outside itself if it is to survive, and it must do so to the exclusion of all other living things on the planet. I didn’t dream this up. My thinking was not consulted before the life system developed. The world was operating on the property principle when I arrived and, like the rest of us, I had to work out my answers to that most fundamental, pragmatic of all social questions: who gets to make decisions about what? The essence of “ownership” is to be found in control: who gets to be the ultimate decision maker about people and “things” in the world?
Observe the rest of nature: trees, birds, fish, plants, other mammals, bacteria, all stake out claims to space and sources of energy in the world, and will defend such claims against intruders, particularly members of their own species. This is not because they are mean-spirited or uncooperative: quite the contrary, many of us have discovered that cooperation is a great way of increasing the availability of the energy we need to live well. We have found out that, if we will respect the property claims of one another and work together, each of us can enjoy more property in our lives than if we try to function independently of one another. Such a discovery has permitted us to create economic systems.
There is no way that I could have produced, by myself, the computer upon which I am writing this article. Had I devoted my entire life to the undertaking, I would have been unable even to have conceived of its technology. Many other men and women, equally unable to have undertaken the task by themselves cooperated without even knowing one another in its creation. Lest you think that my writing would have to have been accomplished through the use of a pencil, think again: I would also have been unable to produce a pencil on my own, as Leonard Read once illustrated in a wonderful, brief essay.
Such cooperative undertakings have been possible because of a truth acknowledged by students of marketplace economic systems, particularly the Austrians about human nature: each of us acts only in anticipation of being better off afterwards as a result of our actions. Toward whatever ends we choose to act, and such ends are constantly rearranging their priorities within us, their satisfaction is always expressed in terms inextricably tied to decision making over something one owns (or seeks to own). Whether I wish to acquire some item of wealth, or to give it away; whether I choose to write some great novel or paint some wondrous work of art; or whether I just wish to lie around and look at flowers, each such act is premised on the fact that we cannot act in the world without doing so through property interests. It is in anticipation of being able to more fully express our sense of what is important to us, both materially and spiritually, that we cooperate with one another.
“Property” also provides a means for maximizing both individual liberty and peace in society. For once we identify who the owner of some item of property is, that person’s will is inviolate as to such property interest. He or she can do what they choose with respect to what is theirs. If I own a barn, I can set fire to it should I so choose? If I must first get another’s permission, such other person is the owner. Individual liberty means that my decision making is immune from the coercion of others, and coercion is always expressed in terms of property trespasses.
At the same time, the property principle limits the scope of my decision making by confining it to that which is mine to control. This is why problems such as industrial “pollution” are usually misconceived, reflecting the truth of Pynchon´s earlier quote. A factory owner who fails to confine the unwanted byproducts of his activities to his own land, is not behaving as a property owner, but as a trespasser. Economists have an apt phrase for this: socializing the costs. He is behaving like any other collectivist, choosing to extend his decision making over the property of others!
But not all of us choose to pursue our self-interests through cooperation with others. Cooperation can exist only when our relationships with others are on a voluntary basis which, in turn, requires a mutual respect for the inviolability of one another’s property boundaries. Those who seek to advance their interests in non-cooperative ways, create another system: politics. If you can manage to drag your mind away from the drivel placed there by your high school civics class teacher, and look at political systems in terms of what they in fact do, you will discover this: every such system is founded upon disrespect for privately owned property! All political systems are collectivist in nature, for each presumes a rightful authority to violate the will, including confiscation, of property owners. One can no more conceive of “politics” without “theft” than of “war” without “violence.”
Every political system is defined in terms of how property is to be controlled in a given society. In communist systems, the state confiscates all the means of production. In less-ambitious socialist systems, the state confiscates the more important means of production (e.g., railroads, communications, steel mills, etc.). Under fascism, “title” to property remains in private hands, but “control” over such property is exercised by the state. Thus, fascism has given us state regulatory systems, in which property owners, be they farmers, homeowners, or businesses, have the illusion of owning what they believe to be “theirs,” while the state increasingly exercises the real ownership authority (i.e., control). In welfare state systems, the state confiscates part of the income of individuals and redistributes it to others.
As stated earlier, property is an existential fact. Whatever the society in which we live, someone will make determinations as to who will live where, what resources can be consumed by whom (and when), and how such property will be controlled. Such decisions can either be made by individual property owners, over what is theirs to control, or by the state presuming the authority to control the lives of each of us. When such decisions are made by the state, it is claiming ownership over our lives.
It is at this point that I let the students in on the secret the political establishment would prefer not to have revealed: the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution did not end slavery, but only nationalized it! That most Americans acquiesce in such political arrangements, and take great offense should anyone dare to explain their implications, has led me to the conclusion that America may be the last of the collectivist societies to wither away. Most Americans, sad to say, seem unprepared to deny the state’s authority to direct their lives and property as political officials see fit. The reason for this, as my first-day question to students is designed to elicit, is that most of us refuse to insist upon self-ownership.
We may, of course, choose to accept our role as state-owned chattels, particularly if we are well-treated by our masters. We may be so conditioned in our obeisance that, like cattle entering the slaughterhouse, we may pause to lick the hand of the butcher out of gratitude for having been well cared for. On the other hand, we may decide to reclaim our self-ownership by taking back the control over our lives that we have long since abandoned.
Perhaps the insanity of our social destructiveness, including the Bush Administration’s deranged declaration of a permanent war against the rest of the world, will bring about an examination of alternative ways of living together in conditions of peace and liberty. Our political systems cannot bring about such harmonious and life-sustaining ways because they are premised on a rejection of the principle of self-ownership. In a society of self-owning individuals, there would be no place for politicians, bureaucrats, and other state functionaries. Like the rest of us, they would have to confine their lives to minding their own business, and deriving whatever benefit they could from persons who chose to cooperate with them.
There is one person who can restore you to a state of self-ownership, however, and that person is you. To do so, you need only assert your claim, not as some empty gesture, but in full understanding of the existential meaning of such a claim, including the willingness to take full control of and responsibility for your life. While your claim will likely evoke cries of contempt from many, you may also find yourself energized by a life force that permeates all of nature; an élan vital that reminds us that life manifests itself only through individuals, and not as collective monstrosities; that life belongs to the living, not to the state or any other abstraction.

You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Judge Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher
Is this you!
by Paine’s Torch
Copyright 1993 ZENO Press, All Rights Reserved
I am a grateful slave.
My master is a good man.
He gives me food, shelter, work and other things.
All he requires in return is that I obey him.
I am told he has the power to control my life.
I look up to him, and wish that I were so powerful.
My master must understand the world better than I,
because he was chosen by many others for his respected position.
I sometimes complain, but fear I cannot live without his help.
He is a good man.
My master protects my money from theft, before and after he takes half of it.
Before taking his half, he says only he can protect my money.
After taking it, he says it is still mine.
When he spends my money, he says I own the things he has bought.
I don’t understand this, but I believe him.
He is a good man.
I need my master for protection, because others would hurt me.
Or, they would take my money and use it for themselves.
My master is better than them:
When my master takes my money, I still own it.
The things he buys are mine.
I cannot sell them, or decide how they are used, but they are mine.
My master tells me so, and I believe him.
He is a good man.
My master provides free education for my children.
He teaches them to respect and obey him and all future masters they will have.
He says they are being taught well; learning things they will need to know in the future.
I believe him.
He is a good man.
My master cares about other masters, who don’t have good slaves.
He makes me contribute to their support.
I don’t understand why slaves must work for more than one master, but my master says it is necessary.
I believe him.
He is a good man.
Other slaves ask my master for some of my money.
Since he is good to them as he is to me, he agrees.
This means he must take more of my money; but he says this is good for me.
I ask my master why it would not be better to let each of us keep our own money.
He says it is because he knows what is best for each of us.
We believe him.
He is a good man.
My master tells me:
Evil masters in other places are not as good as he; they threaten our comfortable lifestyle and peace.
So, he sends my children to fight the slaves of evil masters.
I mourn their deaths, but my master says it is necessary.
He gives me medals for their sacrifice, and I believe him.
He is a good man.
Good masters sometimes have to kill evil masters, and their slaves.
This is necessary to preserve our way of life; to show others that our version of slavery is the best.
I asked my master:
Why do evil masters’ slaves have to be killed, along with their evil master?
He said: “Because they carry out his evil deeds.”
“Besides, they could never learn our system; they have been indoctrinated to believe that only their master is good.”
My master knows what is best.
He protects me and my children.
He is a good man.
My master lets me vote for a new master, every few years.
I cannot vote to have no master, but he generously lets me choose between two candidates he has selected.
I eagerly wait until election day, since voting allows me to forget that I am a slave.
Until then, my current master tells me what to do.
I accept this.
It has always been so, and I would not change tradition.
My master is a good man.
At the last election, about half the slaves were allowed to vote.
The other half had broken rules set by the master, or were not thought by him to be fit.
Those who break the rules should know better than to disobey!
Those not considered fit should gratefully accept the master chosen for them by others.
It is right, because we have always done it this way.
My master is a good man.
There were two candidates.
One received a majority of the vote – about one-fourth of the slave population.
I asked why the new master can rule over all the slaves, if he only received votes from one-fourth of them?
My master said: “Because some wise masters long ago did it that way.”
“Besides, you are the slaves; and we are the master.”
I did not understand his answer, but I believed him.
My master knows what is best for me.
He is a good man.
Some slaves have evil masters.
They take more than half of their slaves’ money and are chosen by only one-tenth, rather than one-fourth, of their slaves.
My master says they are different from him.
I believe him.
He is a good man.
I asked if I could ever become a master, instead of a slave.
My master said, “Yes, anything is possible.”
“But first you must pledge allegiance to your present master, and promise not to abandon the system that made you a slave.”
I am encouraged by this possibility.
My master is a good man.
He tells me slaves are the real masters, because they can vote for their masters.
I do not understand this, but I believe him.
He is a good man; who lives for no other purpose than to make his slaves happy.
I asked if I could be neither a master nor a slave.
My master said, “No, you must be one or the other.”
“There are not other choices.”
I believe him.
He knows best.
He is a good man.
I asked my master how our system is different, from those evil masters.
He said: “In our system, masters work for the slaves.”
No longer confused, I am beginning to accept his logic.
Now I see it!
Slaves are in control of their masters, because they can choose new masters every few years.
When the masters appear to control the slaves in between elections, it is all a grand delusion!
In reality, they are carrying out the slaves’ desires.
For if this were not so, they would not have been chosen in the last election.
How clear it is to me now!
I shall never doubt the system again.
My master is a good man.

Unanswered Letters 2 — Reply to Pat Anderson
by Anna Von Reitz
There has been a LOT of confusion in this process, Pat—- unavoidably so, with the meanings of words being deliberately obscured and many facets of our history buried in reams of the most boring verbiage on Earth.
But….here is the skinny of it all, as delved out from the public records we have.
The Forefathers established nation-states in each of the colonies. Nations are political entities composed of members of Jural Assemblies— unincorporated associations of people who join together for the purpose of defining and enforcing local law— and in our case, that means the Common Law of the land, because our nation-states and our jural assemblies are all land-based and this is the form of law that our Forefathers chose to operate the land jurisdiction.
States are also political entities “standing for” those nations, created for the purpose of administration of public works and trusteeship of public resources. So you have the nation, a political entity structured as an unincorporated association of free people acting as a Jural Assembly to define and enforce the law, and you have the state, which is entrusted with providing public services and trusteeship of public property which is owned “in common”.
The word “state” has another meaning, too, which is the geographic territory in which the members of the state jural assembly lives and over which their authority extends.
A “county” is similarly structured. The word can stand for the organization charged with administration of public works and trusteeship of public resources within the boundaries of the geographic territory, or it can mean the literal geographic territory in which the county jural assembly lives and over which their authority extends.
In the American System, generally speaking, townships make up counties, counties make up states, and the political power vested in these organic states and their living people forming their jural assemblies flows upward—- from the bottom up, not the top down.
These American nation-states which occupy the land mass of our country are all organized as–literally– separate countries within the “perpetual” Union of States created by The Articles of Confederation (1781). This is how the nation-states on the land are organized and how they have always been organized. There has been no change in this basic concept and structure since 1781.
Contrary to popular misinformation, the adoption of The Constitution(s) nearly a decade later had nothing to do with and did not destroy, amend, or replace The Articles of Confederation nor affect the Union of States created by The Articles of Confederation.
The Constitution adopted by the States of America just described is called, appropriately enough, “The Constitution for the united States of America”.
A “constitution” is by definition a “debt agreement or contract”, and in this case, it memorialized a contract for services between the States and the new “Federal Government” they organized as means to provide these “services in common” and which acknowledged the debt that the original States incurred as a result.
The States farmed out some of their work to the federal entity they created, and in exchange, those services were standardized within all the participating States. The agreement resulted in establishing a common defense, a common form of money, a common trade policy, and so on. ALL of the duties assigned to the new “federal government” were international in nature. The States retained all authority related to their land jurisdiction. Period.
Please note that the “federal government” created was a voluntary association of independent nation-states and was never a sovereign government at all.
Once this new association of the States of America was created and adopted–on top of and in addition to and not in any way competing with the Union of States created by The Articles of Confederation— the service contract became operative and the “federal government” began providing the mutually agreed-upon “governmental services” the associated States contracted to receive and pay for.
The Federal Government was and is a subcontractor of the States of America. It has no other business being here, and since we and our States of America created the “Federal Government” we retain the right to amend its service contract, renegotiate its service contract, or terminate its service contract at will.
As part of its services contract, the Federal Government is required to protect and defend our National Trust, known as the United States Trust. This is set forth in the Preamble of The Constitution and was further elucidated by the Bill of Rights.
The organization thus created and popularly known as the Federal Government has no duties related to the land jurisdiction of the United States, except the “Interstate Commerce Clause” provision which exists merely to “regulate” and expedite free trade between the independent nation-states in the same way that the Federal Government is supposed to regulate and expedite American free trade with and among all the other nations of the world.
Please note that because the Federal Government’s duties are all international in nature, it functions naturally in the international jurisdiction of the sea and under the Law of the Sea—–not the Law of the Land. The only form of “common law” available to the Federal Government is international Martial Common Law. When federal officials and agencies refer to The Constitution as the “Law of the Land” they mean that literally, as in the foreign law of our separate and natural jurisdiction on the land—- it’s our Law that they have to respect when they come ashore on our soil. Please also note that the Federal Jurisdiction created by The Constitution is operated from the top down, not from the bottom up. It depends on executive power being exercised to direct all of its activities.
What has occurred here has been a gradual usurpation by the Federal Government which is now operated via two huge international “governmental services corporations” —- THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC. fronted by the FEDERAL RESERVE, INC. and the UNITED STATES, INC., fronted by the IMF.
Various semantic deceits based on similar or even identical names being used to promote fraud against the States of America and the American People have been employed by these corporations and their managers. Chief among these frauds have been the creation of “federated states, counties, and municipalities”.
The two giant federal service corporations made a successful bid to co-opt the organizations that were providing us with State and County level services. They promised the State and County organizations a cut of “federal revenue sharing” in exchange for all of them incorporating as franchises—- like Dairy Queen franchises. This was done as a “private business deal” without public announcement or permission or plebiscite, and it has had profound adverse results.
The Checks and Balances upon which our lawful government depends have been eradicated. Instead of the “State” and “County” organizations representing the interests of the States of America and the American People, they have been commandeered to represent the interests of the parent “federal” corporations instead. This has been done via the simple act of incorporating.
Whenever you incorporate anything, you take it straight off the jurisdiction of the land and out from under the Law of the Land and set sail in the international jurisdiction of the sea. This is how our Constitution has been side-stepped by these organizations and the way that improper fraudulent claims have been exercised against the land and the people of the States of America.
Now, finally getting to your question, Pat—- what about all these new organizations running around and claiming to “be” the legitimate government? We’ve got Tim Turner’s “Republic of the united States of America (RuSA)” and we’ve got Russell Gould’s “Unity States of the World” and we’ve got the French “Neu Republique” and it seems that absolutely everyone has “offered” to stand in for our government, but the fact remains that this is a government of the people, by the people and for the people—- and that means that we actually have to show up and do the work of governing ourselves.
The last few years have been like that old television show—- “Will the real United States of America please stand up?”
The problem with all the aforementioned groups is that they have all concentrated on seizing power from the criminally mismanaged governmental services corporations instead of concentrating on restoring the lawful government from the ground up. They all want to walk onto center stage, claim the baton, and continue to repeat the same mistakes with whatever variations. And that doesn’t solve the real problem which is ignorance of who we are and how our government is supposed to work: from the bottom up.
The fact of the matter is that under international law, each and every birthright American State National IS the government. We are all nation-states, sovereigns, and a law unto ourselves. That is the true brilliance of our Forefathers. As long as we know who we are, we call the shots. As long as there is even one American left standing to exercise The Constitution against these rats, the Last Man Standing Rule applies. So, here we are, exercising the Last Man Standing Rule and forcing all this crap to be dug out from under the rug and dealt with once and for all.
Last November we entered a national crisis with hardly anyone being aware of it. Having failed to establish “exclusive legislative rule” and having no excuse for their fraudulent claims and criminal activities on our shores, the IMF doing business as the UNITED STATES, Inc. let the governmental services corporation go insolvent and prepared to liquidate its assets. They did this without naming any Successor to contract. That led to the “federal side” of The Constitution being “vacated” for the first time in over 200 years.
They actually thought that they could pull this off. They thought they could come in here and “pull an FDR” and claim all the land and assets of the States of America and the American People as payment for their private corporate debts. They thought they could “dispense with” the actual Constitution and its guarantees and come in here and rape and pillage at will. The banks were in full hue and cry. Their operatives claimed before the UN Security Council and the UN Trust Committees that we no longer exist, that we no longer had “international representation”, that we had no “national currency in circulation”.
The banks meant to kill our nation, void our Constitution, and seize our “abandoned” assets to enrich themselves.
So, we formed a new contract agreement with the Native American Nations to represent the States of America and the American People in fulfillment of The Constitution for the united States of America. We issued new Sovereign Letters Patent in rebuttal of the banks and we issued a new Declaration of Joint Sovereignty.
That instantly put the resources and people of the Indigenous Nations on the playing board and on our side. These nations, the Athabascan Nation and the Lakota Nation, are recognized internationally, are members of the United Nations, have more than 15 million members, are competent to fulfill the “federal” side of The Constitution contract, and have agreed to do so.
For the first time in more than three centuries, the American People as a whole have the opportunity to stand together and rule their own destiny on the land and on the sea. We stuck our fingers in the dyke, but it is up to everyone to now work to repair our lawful government and expose the fraud and mismanagement and breach of trust that landed our country in this situation.
All of this is heading toward an inevitable national plebiscite in which the facts are all finally disclosed to everyone and in which each one of us decides the fate of our nation. Meantime, the necessary work of restoring the lawful government on the land has begun. In every corner, township and county, Jural Assemblies are forming and the county level governments owed to the land jurisdiction are booting up.
This, finally, is our government coming from the bottom up, the government of the people, by the people and for the people. This is profoundly not an insurrection. It’s a restoration.
What about the “STATE” and “COUNTY” governments presently operating as franchises of these huge multi-national banking cartels? There’s no need to fight with them. They are just franchises like Dairy Queen franchises of an insolvent parent corporation on one hand (UNITED STATES, Inc.) and another governmental services corporation (THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Inc.) that doesn’t have a valid contract on the other.
Are we supposed to fight with Dairy Queen? Over what? New flavors of ice cream?
No, all that is necessary is that Americans wake up and remember who they are, and start operating their own government the way their government is supposed to work: unincorporated States and Counties operating the land jurisdiction of this nation as a check and a balance against the incorporated Federal Government charged with operations in the international jurisdiction of the sea.
As part of this process we will have the opportunity to call a Continental Congress and review The Contract. We now know, for example, that allowing the United States Congress to have plenary control of the District of Columbia was a mistake. There are several such “holes” in The Constitution that need plugging. Ultimately, the People and their States of America may see fit to amend, rewrite, restructure, or even destroy the existing Constitution in favor of a new consolidated structure that better protects and enunciates the sacredness of each Man and Woman and which provides less leeway for public employees to go astray.
Whatever happens, I know this much: the American People are now awake and thinking about all this like never before, and that process is not likely to reverse. God bless America.
Calling Out John Daresh and NLA Round Two
by Anna Von Reitz
Today, I will address Daresh’s “Information”— which should rightly be titled, “Disinformation” issued a couple days ago. I quote:
Daresh: “This brings us to the main purpose of this Information: Government agent provocateurs have been fueling a quasi-shadow government movement that essentially advocates the overthrow of the government.”
Anna: What government? A corporation run by international banking cartels is not our government, is it? In fact, a corporation doesn’t actually have the capacity to act as a sovereign government at all and we are merely stretching euphemism beyond its limit to pretend that it does.
Daresh: People in this movement, led by de facto Judge Anna Von Reitz, de facto Judge Bruce Doucette and de facto god-graced Administrator Joaquin Folch, who have taken on these self-appointed titles, are duping people from the liberty movements looking for a solution to the subversion within our government who, being ignorant of the law, fall prey to the Pied Pipers .
Anna: There are no “self-appointed titles” involved including “Pied Piper” and nothing “de facto” about it. Everything we’ve done is firmly based on existing Law. We are filling vacated public offices that are owed to our own de jure government. When we offered to show Daresh the facts, he wouldn’t look. His response was rump in the air, head in the sand. So there he sits, ignorant as ever, making irresponsible accusations. NLA deserves far, far better leadership, thank you.
Read the Foreign Sovereigns Immunities Act (FSIA) and the International Organizations Immunities Act (IOIA) for yourselves and then read my explanation of how all this happened in the “Common Law vs. Admiralty Law” article posted at www.annavonreitz.com.
Daresh: Many who are following these de facto judges, actually believe them to be properly elected or appointed.
Anna: We are properly elected Common Law Judges but Daresh mistakenly thinks that we are “supposed to be” Admiralty Judges instead. He expected me to be a Bar Attorney—-that’s how far behind the curve he really is. “Oh, look, Dick, there’s a squirrel…..no, Jane, it’s a cat with a fluffy tail….”
Daresh: Even we thought for a while that Anna Von Reitz was an Alaskan Supreme Court Judge. We spent many months attempting to verify whether she was even a real person.
Anna: Hahahahahahah! I have been here in the same spot since 1992 as thousands of people who have contacted me directly and honestly can confirm. The key words here are “honestly and directly”.
I sent Daresh an original wet-ink copy of our American Affidavit of Probable Cause complete with all my contact information last July and I have the mailing receipts to prove it. Did he call me? No. Did he email me? No. Did he write me a letter? No. Ask me any questions? No.
Let’s just say all those “months” they tried so hard to “verify” my existence could have been settled with a phone call and weren’t. Daresh wasn’t looking for me. He was trying to avoid me and to avoid taking action on our affidavit.
Daresh: But, when she finally surfaced……
Anna: Yeah, right, as if I was hiding. That’s why I issue all my documents, books, articles, everything, with current contact information?
Daresh: …..We saw that she was connected to this quasi-shadow government movement that we have been hearing about; but we had yet to identify the people who are part of this movement until now. We believe the leaders of this movement are fueled by government agent provocateurs.
Anna: Daresh is so clueless that he appears not to know what the “shadow government” is or what the phrase means—- let me enlighten him (and everyone else who needs to know). The Shadow Government was put in place by FDR many long years ago. It refers to all the appointed offices and agencies that have been promulgating their own rules —like the FBI and FEMA and IRS and DHS— and then left to run rampant over the people who pay their wages.
This “government by political appointment” is the “Shadow Government” — as defined by those who first coined the term back in the 1930’s and 40’s. —-and not coincidentally, it was the “Shadow Government” that murdered LaVoy Finicum.
All those so senselessly and groundlessly accused—myself, Judge Doucette, and the others— not only support the Common Law Grand Jury Movement, we are committed to restoring the entire American Common Law Court System.
Anyone who supports the resurrection of the Common Law Grand Juries ought to, as a matter of logic and principle, also support the restoration of the American Common Law Court System that gave the CLGJ’s birth and meaning and enforcement in this country for over 350 years.
But not John Daresh.
He wants to pretend that the restoration of our own Common Law Court System including the Common Law Grand Jury portion of it —-is a plot, an attempt to “overthrow the government”. What a Logic Failure. Grade “F”.
There are a number of reasons why our effort to restore our entire court system cannot be construed as any act of “insurrection” or attempt to “overthrow” any government.
First, there’s the plain fact that we haven’t advocated any such thing.
Second, there’s the fact that no foreign corporation is competent to act as a sovereign government with respect to us and these United States, so the concept of “insurrection” doesn’t apply.
Third, there’s the fact that just as we are heir to the Common Law Grand Jury we are heir to the entire American Common Law Court System as well. If we are owed one part of it, we are owed the whole of it.
The many good people associated with NLA who are trying to restore the Common Law Grand Juries don’t deserve “leadership” that tells lies and causes trouble, nor do they need a truncated vision that leaves their Grand Juries spinning their wheels, going nowhere.
The simple fact is that the Grand Juries are meant to be part of the whole American Common Law Court System and without the whole Court functioning in support of their actions, the Grand Juries are about as useless as a windmill on a still day. They can hand down presentments and informations and writs until they are blue in the face and have nothing to show for their effort but a thank you from John Daresh.
This is what we are trying to tell NLA, and if you stop and think about it, you will realize that what we are telling you is true.

NOTE FROM OLDDOG!
I apologize for being off schedule recently, but numerous ignored Honey Do items
have stretched a very important person’s patience. All done now!
Obama’s High Noon
The “supremacy clause” is dealt with in Mack/Printz, in which the U.S. Supreme Court stated once
and for all, that the only thing “supreme” is the Constitution itself. Where by the powers, the Sheriff
reigns supreme above the president.
Does there remain any governmental Horatius who can stand in the gap; who can lead the Battle for
America and restore the Constitution? There is. Lock and load, mount up and prepare for the return
of the Sheriff
.Stimulate This: The Perversion Of Keynesianism 2/2016

Financial Crisis Being Covered Up: There Will Be No Last Minute Warning 2/2016
- Outwitting Local Freemasons: Follow The Constitution!
- Either Disobey The Constitution Or Disobey Illegal Executive Orders, Its That Simple:
- 50 Sovereign State Flags vs One Federal Flag!
- Local Sheriffs are Under Oath to Support the Constitution Before Federal Gun Control Laws
My guess is that in the minds of many Americans the sheriff is an antiquated figure who lives in the movies.
In the older movies he is the hero; he is Gary Cooper in “High Noon,” awaiting the train that will bring killer
Frank Miller back to town. In the new ones, he is the southern sheriff, even bigger than Rosie O’Donnell,
sneering, sadistic, racist, violent, etc. He has no modern relevance.
But now here comes Sheriff Richard Mack, elected and re-elected in Graham County, Arizona, where he
served for eight years. During his tenure, three federal agents came to a meeting of Arizona sheriffs and
told them in certain terms how they would be dragooned as unpaid federal bureaucrats and administer
the new, federal Brady gun registration law.
The law was named of course for Ronald Reagan’s press secretary, who was severely wounded in the
immensely suspicious attempt to assassinate the President. Since then, Mrs. Brady has become a leader
of the campaign for Nazi gun confiscation. I don’t know whether she was as crazy before the shootings as
she is now. Just one more increment of lunacy and they would have to lock her up.
Sheriff Richard Mack
Richard Mack and the other Arizona sheriffs at the meeting rebelled. Sheriff Richard says the language
he heard – in which he did not participate – could not be repeated in the presence of genteel Christian
ladies, so we can’t tell you here what the sheriffs said. But Sheriff Mack did take the government to court.
He sued the United States, and Sheriff Jay Printz of Montana joined him as plaintiff.
On June 27th, 1997, the sheriffs won; in Printz v. U.S. (521 U.S. 898) the U.S. Supreme Court struck Brady
down. Associate Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the ruling for the Court, in which he explained our system of government at length. The justly revered system of checks and balances is the key:
U.S. Justice Antonin Scalia
“. . . The great innovation of this design was that ‘our citizens would have two political capacities, one state
and one federal, each protected from incursion by the other’” – “a legal system unprecedented in form and
design, establishing two orders of government, each with its own direct relationship, its own privity, its own
set of mutual rights and obligations to the people who sustain it and are governed by it.” (P. 920)
Scalia quotes President James Madison, “father” of the Constitution: “[T]he local or municipal authorities
form distinct and independent portions of the supremacy, no more subject, within their respective spheres,
to the general authority than the general authority is subject to them, within its own sphere.” The Federalist,
No. 39 at 245.
President James Madison Founding Father
Again and again, Justice Scalia pounds the point home (page 921): “This separation of the two spheres is
one of the Constitution’s structural protections of liberty:
‘Just as the separation and independence of the coordinate branches of the Federal Government serve to
prevent the accumulation of excessive power in any one branch, a healthy balance of power between the
States and the Federal Government will reduce the risk of tyranny and abuse from either front.’. . .”
Gregory, 501 U.S. at 458.
He quotes President Madison again: “In The compound Republic Of America, the power surrendered
by the people is first divided between two distinct governments, and then the portion allotted to each
subdivided among distinct and separate departments.
Hence a double security arises to the rights of the people. The different governments will control each
other, at the same time that each will be controlled by itself.” (P. 922)
No one could make this any clearer. The primary purpose of the Fathers was to prevent someone from
grabbing all the power. When that happens, they knew, the result is arbitrary, confiscatory, government,
the kind Thomas Jefferson described in the Declaration of Independence. We would call it totalitarian.
Madison explains: “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands,
whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced
the very definition of tyranny.” Federalist No. 48, February 1, 1788.
To prevent that from happening, they divided the power. First, they divided the federal power into three
parts: the executive, the legislative and the judicial. They would bicker among themselves, so that no one
of them could seize all the power the Constitution grants to the federal government.
The Founders divided the power even more. They set the limited power the Constitution grants the “general authority,” Madison’s term for the federal government, against the vast residual powers of the states.
Each sphere of government, state and federal, would be supreme in its own sphere. Neither could control
the other. Each protects itself from intervention by the other. Each has its own laws and rules.
Madison says this: “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over
the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which
the people are attached and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier
against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government
of any form can admit of.” Loc. Cit.
What does all this mean today in the Battle for America? Sheriff Mack says it proves that the sheriff is the
highest governmental authority in his county. Within that jurisdiction – inside his county – the sheriff has
more power than the governor of his state. Indeed, the sheriff has more power in his county than the
President of the United States. In his county, he can overrule the President and kick his people out. Remember,
the President has few and limited powers.
April 28th, 2016 by olddog
With Q3 of the 2015 fiscal year just around the corner, one cannot help but notice unprecedented unease in both financial and social spheres, and perhaps with good reason; with alternative media forecasters, national banks, and supranational institutions alike heralding the coming of “global depression” by the end of 2016, this consensus of seemingly strange bedfellows almost universally agree that something wicked this way comes.
These dire economic prognostications exist simultaneously in a world in which energy and development prospects, both nationally and transnationally, are being reworked – with equally profound implications as the aforementioned financial trend analysis.
Be it the Obama Administration’s “Clean Power Plan” or the EU and China’s planned Neomalthusian 2030 carbon emission cutbacks, national entities the world over are positioning themselves for profound shifts in energy, development, trade, and even currency ahead of COP21 in Paris this December, or as some have deemed it, “Agenda 2030.”
The convergence of both engineered economic crisis and an engineered “sustainable development” crisis in late-2015 are hardly coincidental, nor are they insignificant.
While the alternative finance community seems destined to eternally squabble about the mechanics of a coming global depression, few have set themselves to the task of projecting what the character of such a post-depression society will look like – and the “New World Economic Order” it has the potential to initiate.
It is this author’s contention that the character of this coming era can only be understood when financial calamity is viewed in tandem with Agenda 21’s faux-ecological insidiousness; and you, Reader, deserve the knowledge and documentation of this sagacious plot.
It’s pervasive, it’s global, and has existed (in its modern form) since at least the 1970s.
Seeking to contextualize this historical continuity, we must first examine the writings of erudite anti-Technocracy researcher, Patrick Wood, and his pioneering work on the Trilateral Commission’s “New International Economic Order” of the 1970s.
Technocracy and the “New International Economic Order”
As an integral decade in this ongoing “Age of Transitions,” the 1970s brought with it previously unimagined sociopolitical and economic shifts. Deflation was prevalent.
The decade also saw the rise of the Petrodollar and the end of the gold-backed Bretton Woods era, as well as the seeding of eugenic “environmental catastrophe” memes propagated by works like the Club of Rome’s 1972 publication, Limits to Growth, or John P. Holdren’s equally Neomalthusian and lauded Ecoscience.
It also saw the birth of the Trilateral Commission, co-founded by David Rockefeller and Zbignew Brzezinski in 1973, who, among other things, pushed forth the concept of a “New International Economic Order” to quell the world’s ailing economic and environmental “doom and gloom” forecasts.
While the nature of this “New International Economic Order” at the time evaded Mr. Wood and his research partner, Dr. Antony Sutton, the perspective granted by the passage of time has lead Patrick Wood to declare Technocracy to be the true aim of this New Order. He writes:
“It is plainly evident today, with 40 years of historical examination behind it, that the “New International Economic Order” was really “new” and envisioned historic Technocracy as replacing Capitalism altogether. Technocracy was based on energy rather than money and its system of supply and demand that regulates pricing. Some distinctives of Technocracy include:
• Elimination of private property and wealth accumulation
• Replacing traditional education with workforce training
• Micromanaging all energy distribution and consumption
• Driving people to live in a limited number of cities and off of rural land
• Enforcing a balance between nature’s resources and man’s consumption of them.
“Are you thinking that this list is vaguely familiar? You should, because it represents the modern manifestation of programs like Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, Smart Grid, Cap And Trade, Climate Change, Common Core, massive surveillance operations and a whole lot more. All of this has been brought to us by the machinations of the Trilateral Commission and its members since 1973, and it is all part of its master plan to completely replace capitalism with Technocracy. This is their “New International Economic Order“! — Patrick Wood, Endgame of Technocracy (Patrick Wood’s book, Technocracy Rising, is available on Amazon).
The Trilateral Commission, however, was not alone in the propagation of the “New International Economic Order” ideal. As with all things global and “sustainable,” the United Nations is sure to be lurking nearby.
The UN’s “Council on Trade and Development” (or UNCTAD) was the chief multinational institution (in cooperation with the Trilateral Commission) in proudly promoting such a New Order throughout the decade:
As noted in my previous article about COP21 and the coming Agenda 21 “update,” documentation on what this “binding and legal agreement” entails directly from UN sources related to the Conference is sparse; that is, until one abandons searching for literature on the “green” facade and goes straight to the source of the “New International Economic Order” itself – that is, global trade governance, as documented by UNCTAD
It is within UNCTAD’s 2015 policy briefs that we begin to find some semblance of clarity as to what a post-global depression geopolitical and economic environment has in store for us; and as all burgeoning Hegelians know, global problems invite (engineered) global solutions.
UNCTAD and the “Sustainable Multilateral” Vision of Humanity
Over the past 40 years, the “New International Economic Order” has changed its name and structure, but never its primary objectives. Its old name cast away in favor of representing our increasingly captive and globalized world, “Multilateral Global Trade Governance” is its new moniker.
The threats of population bombs, peak oil, and Global Cooling prevalent in the ’70s, too, have given way to the phantom foes of carbon emissions and “unsustainability” so overtly propagandized to us in the 21st Century.
In true Technocratic fashion, UNCTAD declares the new face of “transformative” and “multilateral” global governance to be underpinned by none other than sustainable development in their 2015 Policy Brief No. 31:
This shift towards “multilateralism” is more than rhetorical, representing a structural change in the nature of globalism. It’s also not limited to UNCTAD, as the IMF, BIS, World Bank, and yes, even the BRICS have been calling for a “New Multipolar World Order” for quite some time.
This new form of globalism is slated to be seemingly inclusive, allowing nations like China, Russia, India, and Brazil some measure of regional control, while ultimately being subservient to the “binding and legal agreement” of COP21. Continuing with Policy Brief No. 31
We see that these new “inclusive multilateral mechanisms” are anything but voluntary, as UNCTAD goes on to conclude that such mechanisms would “preclude competitive liberalization;” in other words, multilateralism is designed to prevent Second and Third World nations from seeking a development structure outside the UN’s “sustainable” vision.
If any are still in doubt as to whether the BRICS alliance and its New Development Bank represent this globalist multilateral trap, UNCTAD steadfastly declare the BRICS to be an integral regional component in this plot:
This latest forecast echoes UNCTAD’s 2014 publication, A BRICS Development Bank: A Dream Coming True? which also holds the BRICS NDB as a key partner in Agenda 21 and its global Technocratic serfdom, written about at length by this author previously.
This bank-against-bank dialectic is the Globalist version of Coke vs. Pepsi. Republicans vs. Democrats. East vs. West. BRICS Bank vs. World Bank. Multilateral vs. Monopolar. All result in the synthesis of “global trade governance” aspired to by the Anglo-American Establishment and Agenda 21.
In UNCTAD’s Policy Brief on Climate Change No. 4, the structure of this new system of governance was enumerated upon by none other than Chinese (Editorial Correction: S. Korean) UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon. If his description does not represent “multilateral globalism,” I don’t know what does:
Supposedly sovereign nations will be subservient to regional entities (BRICS, NAFTA, EU, etc). Regional entities will abide by a commonly agreed upon set of global development and economic standards (COP21).
The city, town, and community, long subsumed by ICLEI’s “sustainable development” principles as set forth by Rio ’92, are already in lock-step with this “multilateral globalism.”
“And what of the individual,” one may ponder? Such an “outmoded” concept has no place in the eternal Cybernetic feedback loop of “green” global trade governance as outlined by UNCTAD:
The aforementioned “knowledge sharing,” “peer reviewing,” and “accountability” standards will be handled not wholly by governing bodies, but governing algorithms, as such banal tasks are likely to be managed by our increasingly “smart” cities, metering devices, homes, and cars; a shift destined to portend the increased control such devices will bring to everyday life within this “New Multilateral Economic Order.”
It is unlikely that such sweeping alterations to global as well as social interaction will take place unless “motivated” by periods of crisis. In UNCTAD’s Policy Brief No. 36, the importance of our last global crisis of 2008 in creating the prerequisites for “Green” Globalism is noted:
It therefore stands to reason that the activation of these bilateral, regional, and megaregional trade agreements created in the wake of the 2008 Depression will likewise require economic calamity to activate; calamity that alternative media and the Bank for International Settlements alike are predicting as inevitable.
If such a “transformative” global structure is to be initiated in advance of or around COP21 this December, the remainder of 2015 is likely to be wrought with continued economic uncertainty.
The brief goes on to note a number of transnational corporations complying with this new Green Globalism, some of whom should be familiar to the astute Deep Political reader and researcher:
All have been intimately involved in the Neomercantile “opening of China” and the rampant technological buildup of the East by Western capital since the 90s, with IBM’s insidious participation in programs as varied as the Holocaust, police precrime algorithms, and the invention of the “smart city” concept being well documented. Of Lucent Technologies and IBM specifically, James Corbett of The Corbett Report writes:
“In the same time period, China rose from the 30th-largest target of US R&D investment to the 11th on the back of a doubling of US affiliates in the country. The list of companies that started major R&D activities or facilities in China in the 1990s reads like a who’s who of the CFR-nested Fortune 500 set: DuPont, Ford, General Electric, General Motors, IBM, Intel, Lucent Technologies, Microsoft, Motorola, and Rohm and Haas all had a significant stake in China by the beginning of the 21st century.” — James Corbett, The Great Decoupling: How the West is Engineering its Own Downfall
So it would seem this same set of “CFR-nested Fortune 500” companies responsible for building up China’s industrial and technological capacity are now pushing forth sustainable development with the UN as well as within the BRICS nations themselves.
Have these Western entities bolstered China’s modern economic stature out of sheer goodwill? Merely self-interested profiteering? Or is the fulfillment of this greater collectivist agenda the “quid pro quo” demanded by the West in exchange for such niceties as increased regional power in the Asia-Pacific?
This year’s demise of the BRICS economies (most notably China) as well as key Western markets, if not overtly coordinated, certainly provide a unique opportunity to bring about these proposed “global (green) solutions” to “global crises.”
As this blog has set out to demonstrate since its inception, globalism is indeed what its title claims – global. It knows no borders, nations, or ideologies, save complete and utter transnational subjugation of autonomous human beings – globally.
Technocracy – rule by a class of entrenched elites and “snitch society” technologies – will be the character of this coming global era. Sustainable development (Agenda 21) is its vehicle.
It doesn’t reach the “End of the Road” without a transition from the “Old Economic World Order” to the New, a divergence impossible without a global economic crisis the likes of which has not been seen in nearly a Century.
Agenda 21 and the prospect of economic calamity have been inseparable concepts since the ravings of former UN Under-Secretary General and co-Agenda 21 architect, Maurice Strong, became a matter of public record back in 1992. In talking with late activist George Washington Hunt at a UN Environment Conference in Colorado, Strong, under the auspices of a fictional book he hoped to pen, mused casually about how such a “New World Order” could take shape:
“What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude the principal risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? In order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about?
“This group of world leaders forms a secret society to bring about an economic collapse. It’s February. They’re all at Davos. These aren’t terrorists. They’re world leaders. They have positioned themselves in the world’s commodities and stock markets.
“They’ve engineered, using their access to stock markets and computers and gold supplies, a panic. Then, they prevent the world’s stock markets from closing. They jam the gears. They hire mercenaries who hold the leaders at Davos as hostage. The markets can’t close.” — Maurice Strong
Strong abruptly ended his tale by concluding that he “probably shouldn’t be saying things like this.” Not that he had to continue, as from where we stand in 2015, we can see how this tale ends: With Strong’s world on the horizon.
The next engineered economic crisis, ready to be sprung with a proverbial “flip of the switch,” will certainly be a global one. Yet Strong’s fantasies of Davos hostage takings of over twenty years ago may prove entirely unnecessary at COP21 in our modern era, as nearly all opposition to Agenda 21 on the global stage has been subsumed by its promise of complete technological control and a seat at the “multilateral table.”
You, though, Reader, have no seat at this table. An ostensibly insignificant cog in an international machine; but armed with the knowledge of what is to come, perhaps a cog that may someday soon decide to grind to a halt. This machine, after all, is each and every one of us.

WELCOME BACK CM Pedersen
Heads up folks, this lady is an old friend and activist from my early days in this war of freedom lovers vs. tyrants, and requires your attention when she writes. Believe me; she is qualified to debate any and all subjects about the globalist takeover of planet earth. Without people with her intelligence we would be up the creek without a paddle. She also recommends this 12 minute video, to further support her article below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=josKPWSGpY4
By CM Pedersen
When the 9/11 Commission Report was published the seed of a potential small time bomb was planted in the form of 28 classified pages that we are told explore the question of who financed the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Bankster minion and Globalist Senator Bob Graham has been one of the most vocal politicians of late to float the issue of the redacted pages pointing a finger to intimate “The Saudis did it!” Senator Graham must have forgotten when you point a finger three fingers point back at you.
The mainstream media narrative of this unfolding drama has been to make us believe that the Saudi elites threatened Obama with blackmail in the form of dumping their Treasury bill holdings if members of congress went forward with declassifying the 28 pages. If you think about it, as a blackmail threat goes, it doesn’t make any sense that the Saudis would threaten to sell Treasury bills when far more damage could be done by revealing they were serving the CIA and larger US government apparatus. Why would the US government risk opening that can of worms and why would the Saudi elites risk the wrath of the self-described Masters of The Universe after having witnessed time and time again the brutal repercussions of thumbing a nose at the Global Elite as happened to Hussein and Gaddafi? Saudi Royals must also know the Globalists have the technology to create devastating “natural” disasters, pandemics, and targeted economic crises. Reality is hard ball, not soap opera politics.
The fact of the matter is the Saudi oligarchs have been loyal minions to the New World Order architects for many decades and have been in their clutches to one degree or another since the first Saudi oil fields began production. Saudi elites would not disobey their Masters and therefore as junior globalist mafia members in very good standing would not be targets to be “thrown under the bus”. Case in point, at the behest of their international banker masters. the Saudis spearheaded the formation of the Middle East Regional Governance system in 2011, called the Gulf Cooperation Council with 7 nation members and additional members proposed, modeled after the EU to include harmonization of laws and cultural practices, and a new regional currency – similar to the EU and Euro and the proposed NAU and “Amero”, stepping stones or as Putin approvingly calls regional governance essential “bricks” to build the new international economic order. This strongly indicates Saudi elites are therefore also willing actors in this charade of geopolitical theatrics, the first major scene in the denouement of the dollar reserve system and the rise of Agenda 2030.
So what was the big bugaboo behind this faked geopolitical soap opera spat between the US and Saudi Arabia that sent many alternative media writers into a tizzy? As with all large psychological operations, the motives are many with countless layers of deception folded in. The Saudi red herring narrative has the potential to achieve several objectives. One would be to shake the foundation of trust in the political system to prepare for a new one and weaken a sense of national identity. In this regard, it is important to note as an example of the Globalists‘ increasingly in-our-faces boldness, using their connections in the Establishment Media, last year they floated the notion of the US breaking apart in a Peggy Noonan Wall Street Journal column in which she described a conversation with a very powerful yet unnamed mover and shaker who said a break up of the United States may be on the horizon.
Another motive would be to create more social fracturing given 9/11 as an inside job tends to be a highly volatile issue. This social fracturing is something we are seeing in the Presidential election cycle, an engineered fracturing of Republican voters as well as Left versus Right showdowns as in the instances of Sanders supporters egged on by some Moveon.org organizers to disrupt Trump rallies with Globalist George Soros being a financial contributor to Moveon and other organizations that sponsor raucous protests in the US and around world. The most important rationale would have to be to create a smokescreen for the end of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. If Americans understood this process was planned long ago by the international bankers to force them on their knees to accept a global currency and loss of sovereignty under a UN world government system of rule, then there would be much greater resistance.
Finally, consider the timing of the bolder re-surfacing of this now old story on the redacted pages. We know we’re on a runaway train headed towards a cashless society, an international bankster controlled global digital currency and global governance. Is it a coincidence the cover article of a 1988 issue of The Economist (a Rothschild publication) displayed an image of a rising Phoenix atop a pile of burning world currencies telling readers to get ready for a global currency dubbed The Phoenix is supposedly set to roll out in the target year 2018.
Just recently the media reported UN Executive Secretary on Climate Change Christiana Figueres announced plans to accelerate implementation of accords signed at the Paris climate summit to go into effect two years earlier, beginning in 2018 rather than 2020. Figueres and her colleague UN IPCC co-chair (2008-2015) Ottmar Edenhofer have both admitted global climate change policy is not about the environment, it is, instead, about transforming the global economic order to “redistribute the world’s wealth by climate policy” and in the process track and monitor every thing you do using RFID biometric technologies – yes, the chip they still want to insert in your body, starting with your pets as being mandated by law in the UK.
Climate Change policies are the drivers of UN Agendas 21 and 2030 and the Paris Climate Pact and virtually every nation state has been implementing these policies economically, socially, politically, and in their infrastructure for more than two decades, since the 1992 Rio Summit and structured by IMF and World Bank dictates. All nations are going down this path, including our supposed enemies, with perhaps the only exception being North Korea kept isolated providing the Globalists with a boogeyman to pull out of their box when needed.
To reiterate, the Saudi Elites are on board with the new global currency and the New World Order Train. They have always been obedient and very compliant junior members of the global mafia – there is no rift, the narratives don’t add up except as a multi-layered psychological operation. Moreover, the Saudis know what is coming and their Mafia Godfather handlers clearly must have given them a heads up when it was time for oil prices to crash because right before oil prices began plummeting, suddenly, the Saudis began feverishly rounding up one million immigrant workers with another million rounded up in subsequent months, two million out of a population of 30 million – on scale equivalent to 22 million immigrants deported out of the US within weeks to months. It was a chaotic scene of angry low level foreign workers shoved into crowded camps for deportation, done so hastily that one media report described a disastrous overflow at a large municipal plant when many of its workers were taken away by authorities.
The Saudi Royals have also been creating a large sovereign investment fund to survive the global economic austerity and strict rationing of energy use to come that will largely dry up their major income source as outlined by Agenda 2030. They know what’s coming. In sharp contrast, the vast majority of humanity doesn’t see the big curve balls coming right at them because they are being distracted with elaborate theater on the national and international stages.

Footnote: Senator Bob Graham along with Congressman Porter Goss longtime CIA officer recruited in college at Yale, later becoming Director of Central Intelligence and the CIA 2004-2006 and prior to that was appointed ambassador to the UN, met with Pakistan ISI General Mahmud Ahmed on the morning of 9/11 and shortly after the attacks it was discovered that General Mahmud Ahmed was behind Ahmad Umar Sheikh’s $100,000 money wire transfer to 9/11 terrorist ringleader Mohammed Atta. The only action taken against the Pakistani ISI General was he was fired from his position at the insistence of US political leaders and was apparently not questioned about his role as the public was not informed of any investigation into the matter, the original details having been revealed by investigative journalists rather than US officials.

April 24, 2016 “Information Clearing House” – On 19 April 2016, China was rolling out its new gold-backed yuan. Russia’s ruble has been fully supported by gold for the last couple of years. Nobody in the western media talks about it. Why would they? – A western reader may start wondering why he is constantly stressed by a US dollar based fiat monetary systems that is manipulated at will by a small elite of financial oligarchs for their benefit and to the detriment of the common people.
In a recent Russia Insider article, Sergey Glaziev, one of Russia’s top economists and advisor to President Putin said about Russia’s currency, “The ruble Is the most gold-backed currency in the world”. He went on explaining that the amount of rubles circulating is covered by about twice the amount of gold in Russia’s Treasury.
In addition to a financial alliance, Russia and China also have developed in the past couple of years their own money transfer system, the China International Payment System, or the CIPS network which replaces the western transfer system, SWIFT, for Russian-Chinese internal trading. SWIFT, stands for the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, a network operating in 215 countries and territories and used by over 10,000 financial institutions.
Up until recently almost every international monetary transaction had to use SWIFT, a private institution, based in Belgium. ‘Private’ like in the US Federal Reserve Bank (FED), Wall Street banks and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS); all are involved in international monetary transfers and heavily influenced by the Rothschild family. No wonder that the ‘independent’ SWIFT plays along with Washington’s sanctions, for example, cutting off Iran from the international transfer system. Similarly, Washington used its arm-twisting with SWIFT to help Paul Singer’s New York Vulture Fund to extort more than 4 billion dollars from Argentina, by withholding Argentina’s regular debt payments as was agreed with 93% of all creditors. Eventually Argentina found other ways of making its payments, not to fall into disrepute and insolvency.
All of this changed for Argentina, when Mauricio Macri, the new neoliberal President put in place by Washington, appeared on the scene last December. He reopened the negotiations and is ready to pay a sizable junk of this illegal debt, despite a UN decision that a country that reaches a settlement agreement with the majority of the creditors is not to be pressured by non-conforming creditors. In the case of Argentina, the vulture lord bought the country’s default debt for a pittance and now that the nation’s economy had recovered he wants to make a fortune on the back of the population. This is how our western fraudulent monetary system functions.
China’s economy has surpassed that of the United States and this new eastern alliance is considered an existential threat to the fake western economy. CIPS, already used for trading and monetary exchange within China and Russia, is also applied by the remaining BRICS, Brazil, India and South Africa; and by the members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), plus India, Pakistan and Iran, as well as the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU – Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan). It is said that CIPS is ready to be launched worldwide as early as September 2016. It would be a formidable alternative to the western dollar based monetary Ponzi scheme.
The new eastern monetary sovereignty is one of the major reasons why Washington tries so hard to destroy the BRICS, mainly China and Russia – and lately with a special effort of false accusations also Brazil through a Latin America type Color Revolution.
In addition, the Yuan late last year was accepted by the IMF in its SDR basket as the fifth reserve currency, the other four being the US dollar, the British pound, the euro and the Japanese yen. The SDR, or Special Drawing Right, functions like a virtual currency. It is made up of the weighted average of the five currencies and can be lent to countries at their request, as a way of reducing exchange risks. Being part of the SDR, the yuan has become an official reserve currency. In fact, in Asia the yuan is already heavily used in many countries’ treasuries, as an alternative to the ever more volatile US dollar.
It is no secret, the western dollar-led fiat monetary system is on its last leg – as eventually any Ponzi scheme will be. What does ‘fiat’ mean? It is money created out of thin air. It has no backing whatsoever; not gold, not even the economic output generated by the country or countries issuing the money, i.e. the United States of America and Europe. It is simply declared “legal tender’’ by Government decree.
No pyramid scheme is sustainable in the long run and eventually will collapse. It was invented and is used by a small invisible upper crest of elite making insane amounts of profit on the back of the 99% of us. Since these elitists are in control of the media with their lie propaganda, as well as the warmongering killing machine, US armed forces, NATO, combined with the international security and spy apparatus, CIA, MI6, Mossad, DGSE, the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) and more, we are powerless – but powerless only as long as we ignore what’s really going on behind the curtain.
Our western monetary system is based on debt has all the hallmarks of a failing global monster octopus. The US banking system was deregulated in the 1990’s by President Clinton. The European vassals followed suit in the early 2000’s. About 97% of all the money in circulation in the western world is ‘made’ by private banks by a mouse click in the form of ‘loans’ or debt. Every loan a private bank hands out is a liability on that bank’s books; a liability that bears interest, the key generator of the banks’ profits. Profit from thin air! No work, no production, no real added value to the economy.
If and when the banks within this web of debt begin recalling their outstanding liabilities, they may set a non-stoppable avalanche in motion – leading to a chaotic end of the system. This end-run may have just begun. We have seen a gradual build-up since the end of WWII with the armament of the Cold War farce, and a high point with the manufactured sub-prime crisis of 2007 / 2008 / 2009, prompting an artificial and endless global economic crisis which may come crashing down in 2016 / 2017.
The damage may be humongous, leaving behind chaos, poverty, famine, misery – death. With the invisible ruling elite having cashed in, remaining on top and being liable to start again from scratch. – If we let them. It always boils down to the same: An uninformed people can be manipulated at will and is left in awe when hit by unexpected events, like acts of terror by bombs or banks.
Let us be crystal clear – we are all uninformed as long as we listen to and believe in the mainstream media – which are controlled by six Anglo-Zionist media giants, feeding the western public with 90% of the information, the so-called ‘news’ that we consume so eagerly every day; the barrage of lies that repeat themselves in every western country every hour on the hour – and, thus, become the truth. Period.
We must get out of our comfortable armchairs, listen to that innermost spark in the back of our minds, telling us against all avalanches of lies that there is something wrong, that we are being fed deception. We have to dig for the truth. And it is there – on internet, on alternative media, like Global Research, Information Clearing House, VNN, The Saker, NEO, Russia Today, Sputnik News, PressTV, TeleSUR – and many more credible sources of truth-seekers.
Back to the impending collapse. – The ground rules for our pyramid monetary scheme have been laid in 1913 by the creation of the FED. Again, the FED is an entirely private, Rothschild dominated banking institution that serves as the US Central Bank. It is the omnipotent dollar making machine. It was fraudulently and secretly conceived in 1910 on Jekyll Island, Georgia, and described by Jekyll Island history (http://www.jekyllislandhistory.com/federalreserve.shtml ) as the “duck hunt” which
“included Senator Nelson Aldrich, his personal secretary Arthur Shelton, former Harvard University professor of economics Dr. A. Piatt Andrew, J.P. Morgan & Co. partner Henry P. Davison, National City Bank president Frank A. Vanderlip and Kuhn, Loeb, and Co. partner Paul M. Warburg. From the start the group proceeded covertly. They began by shunning the use of their last names and met quietly at Aldrich’s private railway car in New Jersey.”
The concoction of these secretive “duck hunters” became in 1913 the privately owned Rothschild dominated Federal Reserve System, the US central bank by deceit.
After signing the FED act into existence, President Woodrow Wilson declared,
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
The Anglo-Saxon system had a central bank in England since way back in 1694. It was then already controlled by the Rothschilds, as was the entire banking system. Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild once declared:
“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”
The Rothschild family’s fortune cannot be properly estimated, but it must be in the trillions. What Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild may have said some 300 years ago, still holds true to this day.
No wonder, breaking loose of this sham monetary scheme is number one priority of most countries that treasure sovereignty, autonomy and freedom, though they do not dare say so openly, lest the empire lashes out at them punishing them with the very financial terror they want to escape from. And lashing out at the unaligned world the empire does, like a dying beast, attempting to pull with it much of the living world into its own shoveled grave.
Is it therefore coincidence or a rather a purposefully planned convergence of several events as a last ditch effort first to ravage then to salvage as much as possible before the collapse?
On 10 April, Zero Hedge reports “Austria Just Announced A 54% Haircut of Senior Creditors in First “Bail In” Under New European Rules”. The Austrian “bad bank”, the failed Hypo Alpe Adria, that became Heta Asset Resolution AG after the government’s nationalization, found a US$ 8.5 billion hole in its balance sheet, enough to trigger the new European ‘bail-in’ rule. Is it coincidence that also in Austria a major bank failure triggered the Great Depression also on a 10th of April – in 1931? – This is a first in Europe. Be prepared for others to follow, as over-extension of European banks is estimated in excess of a trillion dollars.
On 15 April, the New York Times reported that – Five of Wall Street’s eight largest banks are in defiance of the US banking regulator. The FED and FDIC said that “JP Morgan, Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, State Street and Bank of New York, all lacked ‘credible‘ plans to enter bankruptcy in the event of a financial crisis.” These banks have until October 2016 to comply. Under the new rules a tax-payer bail-out would be unlikely. Hence ‘bail-ins’ could affect millions of depositors and shareholders, their funds being stolen in order to self-rescue the too-big-to-fail banks. After all, non-compliance with the regulator’s requests, or insolvency, can easily be manufactured as a legal base for stealing common people’s savings. No worries, the TBTF banks will not go away, but your savings may.
The CIA released Panama Papers (for who still doubts about the CIA involvement in the release of the Panama Papers,
read here http://journal-neo.org/2016/04/09/the-panama-papers-the-people-deceived/),
aimed in a most rudimentary way at defaming the ‘usual suspects’, Presidents Putin and Assad, as well as Iran, Venezuela, Brazil, of course – and others. Strangely no notable EU or US citizens or corporations were on the list. Would anybody seriously believe that Mr. Putin, a former KGB agent, would be so ignorant as to putting his fortune (even if he had any to hide) into Panama, the epitome of a US puppet state, where you can’t flush a toilet without Washington knowing it?
Some token neocons appear in the published papers, like Argentina’s new ‘Washington appointed’ President Mauricio Macri, who is running amok ruining his country. Within less than four months he has rolled Argentina’s economy back by ten years, raising poverty from below 10% in November 2015 to 34% by the end March 2016. The Empire needs him to keep gradually turning Argentina into chaos, however not too quickly, lest he may be ‘deposed’ and replaced by a US adversary – that would not at all be appreciated in Washington. For the types of Macri that made it on the list, the Panama Papers are a warning signal to keep them in-check.
The publication of the Panama Papers may also be an incentive for US citizens and corporations to bring home trillions of undeclared dollar holdings stacked away in overseas tax havens into homeland financial shelters like those in Delaware, Wyoming, South Dakota and Nevada, thereby helping strengthen the gradually decaying dollar.
Simultaneously, some European countries and Japan introduced negative interest rates, so as to increase monetary liquidity, thereby hoping stimulating an ever stagnant economy. That’s the pretext. In reality however, negative interests are but a precursor to a wholly bank controlled financial system. Normally ‘bail-ins’ and negative interest would cause a run on the banks. This has not happened yet.
In Switzerland, one of the first countries to introduce negative interests, the Swiss National Bank reported that the demand of the 1,000 franc notes – one of the world’s highest value denominations (apparently to be maintained despite ECB Draghi’s call for elimination of high denomination bank notes) – increased by 17% (by CHF 4.7 billion – US$ 4.85 billion) in December 2014, the month following the introduction of negative interests. May it be an indication that the Swiss have quietly started hoarding big-denomination cash?
Future hoarding and runs on the banks will be countered by the introduction of a cashless society, i.e. all monetary transactions will gradually become electronic. The process has already begun. In Sweden and other parts of Europe, as well as Japan, cashless supermarkets and department stores claim big success, especially with the young consumers, who happily play along paying electronic cashiers by swiping their cell phones in front of an electronic eye.
The Young and Innocent – if they only knew that the banking oligarchs want to control their money and enslave them with a ‘fun gadget’, they may decide to resist. But well know those who control the system that the young are the drivers of the future. We, the old resistance will eventually die out. Problem solved. – But we are not dead yet. The Times are A-Changing… (Bob Dylan, 1964).
The nefarious trio – ‘bail-ins’, negative interests, and a cash free society – will make living in the industrialized ‘first world’ a sheer nuisance, a stressful dance on toes, as the emperor’s proverbial Damocles Sword hangs intimidatingly above us.
Washington may have one last joker up its sleeve – reintroducing the ‘gold standard’, the very gold standard that Nixon abandoned in 1971. The US have also been accumulating huge amounts of gold over the past 25 years. A new US dollar gold standard would most likely be set at a ratio that would wipe out all US debt, including future ‘unmet obligations’ (GAO – General Accounting Office) of about US$ 125 trillion. It would attempt to keep the western industrialized world in Washington’s orbit, but might lose most of the developing world owning natural resources coveted by the west. These countries oppressed and colonized for centuries are likely to gravitate to the new China-Russia alliance – leaving the outsourced and outwitted west alone without workforce – and with a massive but outdated military power.
To counter the build-up of this criminal last ditch sham by the western Zionist banking czars, China and Russia have been preparing over the last few years an independent financial system, delinked from the US dollar and which now incorporates the BRICS, the SCO nations, as well as the Eurasian Economic Union. This association of countries and economies account for about half the world’s population and at least one third of the globe’s economic output; a fact totally ignored by the mainstream media, for obvious reasons. The Machiavellian sinking ship does not want its passengers to jump to safety.
The 19 April 2016, announcement by China of its gold-backed yuan, no longer convertible into dollars, may just trigger an economic shift into the ‘eastern camp’. Many countries are wary and tired of western exploitation, enslavement, threats of sanctions, oppression and an ever present danger of invasion by the killing machine. The decoupling of the dollar by a third of the world economy may indeed open new horizons, creating new alliances, new hope for a more equal and just world.

TN Note: The infiltration of Technocratic thinking into the media has resulted in a dumbing-down of journalists everywhere. Lies are mistaken for truth, certainty replaces uncertainty, blind acceptance replaces skepticism. Investigative journalism does not investigate any more.
World press freedom deteriorated in 2015, especially in the Americas, advocacy group Reporters Without Borders said Wednesday as it released its annual rankings, warning of “a new era of propaganda”.
The World Press Freedom Index ranks 180 countries on indicators such as media independence, self-censorship, the rule of law, transparency and abuses.
This year’s report warned of a climate of fear that has seen world leaders “developing a form of paranoia about legitimate journalism.”
Christophe Deloire, secretary general of the Paris-based group told AFP there had been a decline in all parts of the world, with Latin America of particular concern.
“All of the indicators show a deterioration. Numerous authorities are trying to regain control of their countries, fearing overly open public debate,” he said.
“Today, it is increasingly easy for powers to appeal directly to the public through new technologies, and so there is a greater degree of violence against those who represent independent information,” he added.
“We are entering a new era of propaganda where new technologies allow the low-cost dissemination of their own communication, their information, as dictated. On the other side, journalists are the ones who get in the way.”
The situation was particularly grave in Latin America, the report said, highlighting “institutional violence” in Venezuela and Ecuador, organised crime in Honduras, impunity in Colombia, corruption in Brazil and media concentration in Argentina as the main obstacles to press freedom.
Among the lowest ranked countries were Syria, at 177th place out of 180, just below China (176th) but above North Korea (179th) and last placed Eritrea.
Japan slumped to 72nd due to what the watchdog identified as self-censorship towards Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, while Finland retained its top spot for the sixth consecutive year, followed by the Netherlands and Norway.
– Europe on ‘downhill course’ –
While Europe remained the region with the most press freedom, Reporters Without Borders warned that the misuse of counter-terrorist and counter-espionage measures and conflicts of interest had put it on “a downhill course”.
You do not have to take my word for it, and only your lack of attention is why you are losing your freedom of speech everywhere, not just on the internet. The constant barrage of social control is not always apparent to the more liberal minded, or entertainment junkies. And once you have acquiesced to the lost of freedom you never recognize life is any different. It is like a slow growing cancer that eats your brain. It is high time you demand your first amendment rights and support freedom of the press and speech everywhere. The technocrats are insatiable in their pursuit of absolute social control. Their methods are slow and relentless so as not to shock us, and deal with rebellion. You simply cannot continue ignoring our subjection.

The Best of Jack Perry
I’ve received emails from folks asking my opinion on “How’s it all going to end?” As in, what major crisis is going to finally cause the American Giant to fall down and go boom? Guess what? There won’t be a major crisis that does it. It’s going to be a slow cascade reaction of crisis and disasters. What’s more, it has already begun. We’ve already seen several of these disasters. More are on the way. The end has begun and is upon us.
Now, if you want to see what it will look like, have a look at Detroit. Here’s a city that was THE epicenter of American vehicle manufacturing. The pride of American can-do hoo-ha and all that jazz. In fact, I’m going to coin that phrase into a word to describe American arrogance: American Candohooha. I know, it sounds like a river back east, but let’s use it anyway. American Candohooha supported a population of over a million people in Detroit. All kinds of snazzy buildings and houses. They thought it’d last forever. Kind of like the ghost towns you find out here where I live. They thought that would last forever, too, and now you need a topo map to find these places.
Detroit now has about 700,000 people. They had something like 70,000 abandoned buildings. People starting fires left and right in them, sometimes up to 30 fires a night. The fire department was stretched to the limit and finally, a new fire commissioner said let fires in abandoned buildings just burn. Don’t fight them. Wake up, America: This is your future. Detroit declared bankruptcy. This is where all major cities are eventually headed. AmericanCandohooha is the past. What, the federal government is coming to save you? Did they save Detroit? Think about it. If the federal government really cared about Detroit, do you think they’d have let an epidemic of arson like that continue? No. They’d have called it “terrorism” and there would have been tanks and troops patrolling those neighborhoods with orders to shoot arsonists on sight and they’d have sent in a thousand fire engines and an army of federal firefighters. But Detroit has no value to the feds. Obviously.
The federal government knows something many of us don’t want to admit. Eventually, several regions in the United States are going to cascade into collapse a lot quicker as they gain momentum. It’s like an avalanche. It begins with the loss of manufacturing economies in cities where that is the lifeblood of that city. Once that’s gone, the tax base that supports the infrastructure goes away. Thus, you can’t really afford to take care of it anymore. Then with all the abandoned buildings, the fires begin. Before you know it, the place looks like Berlin in 1945. That’s what happened to Detroit. That is the future of America as a whole.
The feds are probably trying to figure out exactly what they’re going to be able to hold onto and consolidate as the “United States”. Some regions are probably going to slowly move towards secession not because of political ideology, but for mere survival. Look, the feds sat there and let Detroit burn night after night and couldn’t care less. Not every state or region is going to accept that from them. Not the Southwest I know. I would say we could look to probably Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and possibly Utah and Colorado forming a new nation of their own once their major cities start burning. California will be crapping bricks within a couple years because we’ll block them from the Colorado River water. Arizona is already saying we need to start pinching off California’s access to that water because of an epic drought we’ve got going on here.
See, some regions are going to have to shake themselves out into a new nation that can pursue its own economic future. The United States federal government is fresh out of ideas. What, another housing boom? Huh, that’ll buy them, what, six years at best? Let me say this: The feds are looking for their own survival, not the survival of the nation as a whole. Detroit proves it. That right there is what they’re going to do. They’re going to basically let everything happen and think they can hold on to some power center and the military and force us to pay taxes. That’s easier planned in the Pentagon than done.
The feds control nuclear weapons, yes. But understand this: Every state that has a nuclear power plant can build them. Yes, even the predominantly liberal state of California could have a nuclear weapon probably within a year if they decided they needed one. Delivery vehicles are not that hard to build, either. Any state with a railroad would be able to construct a basically un-targetable system such as the old MX was supposed to be. The military even studied using railroads for that back during the Cold War. Therefore, it won’t be the 1860s all over again like the Civil War. It’ll be a domestic Cuban Missile Crisis. But with a twist.
The natural resources are going to be up for grabs. The feds will want to control it, but they can’t. Not if autonomous regions spring up and declare themselves to be nations because the feds basically sat there and let their cities burn to the ground. Those states that become nations will control those resources—water, food, oil, and natural gas—and the feds based in the East will be SOL for the most part. Why and how? Because when a region declares itself to be an independent nation, they will probably build themselves a military alliance with Russia, who’ll get perhaps a naval base on the coast of Texas, plus an air force base. Would Russia do that? Why not? There would be a chance to carve the United States juggernaut into manageable pieces and negate them as a future threat. If a large chunk of what was America became an ally of Russia, so much the better for the Russians.
The mistake the Confederates made was not seeking a powerful ally before the war. They also didn’t have the industrial power the North had. But times are different now. The home field of the federal government—the East—is no longer an economic powerhouse. It’s a financial powerhouse. Once the federal money has no value beyond tinder, they will have no power at all, save for a few nuclear weapons they were able to fly into the area. They won’t have the industrial base they had in the past. Look at Detroit. The industrial power now is spread out. The agricultural regions are also quite far off. The feds will not hold on to power more than a decade or two once this process starts gathering momentum.
The end is not near. The end has begun. You wanted to know how it will end? Well, take a look around. You’re living in it. If you live in a major city, you already know this or suspect this. If you live in a rural area, you already know the federal government could disappear tomorrow and it wouldn’t affect you that much. We’re not going to fall into some dystopian dog-eat-dog future. We’re going to cease to be the United States and become a collection of different countries. The Southwest will be one. California will probably be its very own, or combine with Oregon and Washington state. The Midwest might be another. They’ll all gather up National Guard resources and abandoned federal military equipment and create their own militaries. Each will pursue international relations of their own. They might all sign a non-aggression pact, but California will learn the Southwest has them outgunned and have to find other water resources. Or trade for it.
The trade between these autonomous regions would be a true trade. Not exchange of happy meal toys for pieces of paper called “dollars”. Oil would be directly traded for food, food for water, and so forth. Each region would be able to create its own currency and here is where we’d finally see a return to gold and silver currency. I daresay other countries in the world would clamor more to trade with these countries than they did with the former United States. Lots of trade can be done without the feds saying, “You can’t do that!” or “There’s a 65% excise tax on that product!”
People have this idea that the United States must remain united. Why? Many regions have different interests. Like a relationship that went sour, this federal government thing was nice when times were good, but we need to move on. We need to see other people, or rather, see different flags flying above our state capitols. We’re different people now. That’s not a bad thing, it just means we need to stop trying to pound every square and triangular peg into the round hole. The federal government cannot administer this entire country anymore. Look at Detroit. Look at the blighted areas of every major city. Not to mention the aggressive nature of the federal government in terms of cataclysmic wars it starts all over the planet.
Soon, it will become apparent all over America that the future for them looks like Detroit. Detroit was the first sign of the terminal illness that will fill the federal government. In time, regions will learn they need to break away for their own survival. Political ideology will not sell people on secession. But half the supermarkets empty and the other half on fire will. Because the cascade towards that has begun and cannot be stopped. It’s nothing to be afraid of. Nothing is permanent. Governments arise and pass away, like the Romans. Rome is gone, but Italy is there. The United States, too, will pass away. But new nations with better futures will arise.

Please understand that I am not a “tub-thumper”, an enthusiast, or an apologist for Donald Trump. But his electrifying emergence on the scene represents a sea-change in American politics far more consequential than his own pyrotechnic personality, bold campaign-style, and receipt of popular enthusiasm suggest. He is, as it were, the surfer who—perhaps by accident, perhaps by insight, but in any event in a timely fashion—has caught the first of the really big waves rolling towards shore. The significant aspect of the present situation is not the surfer, however, but the wave: namely, the upsurge of popular disgust for the “two”-party political vessel in which this country is sailing on a collision-course into the rocks of despair. This first big wave threatens all of the ships riding at anchor in the Establishment’s harbor. So the Establishment needs to throw up a breakwater, in a manner both fast and furious.
As anyone with 20-20 political vision can see, America’s domestic enemies have taken off their velvet gloves to reveal the iron fists underneath, by employing against Trump directly, and America ultimately, the modern Bolshevistic strategy of socio-political destabilization through so-called “non-violent direct action”, “weathermen” tactics, and “color revolutions”—all in line with the old Leninist/Stalinist slogan, “there are no fortresses which Bolsheviks cannot storm”. Please refrain from chiding me that the contemporary Establishment is not, to one degree or another, made up largely of Bolsheviks. The opposite is obviously true. Some are retreaded Trotskyites (who call themselves “neoconservatives”). Others are watered-down Mensheviks (who call themselves “social democrats” or “moderate socialists”). Others are the equivalent of NEP-men (better known here as “corporate socialists”, because they rely on governmental intervention in the economy to guarantee profits for themselves, while offloading losses onto the backs of the general public). And all of them are doctrinaire Leninists, inasmuch as they subscribe to his notion that “[t]he scientific term ‘dictatorship’ means nothing more nor less than authority untrammeled by any laws, absolutely unrestricted by any rules whatever, and based directly on force”. Vladimir I. Lenin, “A Contribution to the History of the Question of the Dictatorship, A Note” , in Collected Works (Moscow, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: Progress Publishers, 4th English Edition, 1966), Volume 31, at 353. None of these people gives a tinker’s dam for the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution—indeed, they believe themselves to be “untrammeled by any laws”. And all of them enthusiastically promote the present-day global “war on terrorism”, under color of which a para-militarized police-state apparatus, “absolutely unrestricted by any rules whatever, and based directly on force”, is being built up within this country in order to wage a domestic “war of terrorism” against the American people. See my book By Tyranny Out of Necessity: The Bastardy of “Martial Law” for the particulars on this.
If I may base my appreciation of the present situation upon an historical parallel drawn from Germany’s dolorous experience under the Weimar government in the 1920s and 1930s (which is probably familiar to most readers of this commentary), the advent of these bare-knuckled mass assaults on this country amounts to our own home-grown Bolsheviks’ declaration of ein Kampf um die Macht auf Leben und Tod (a struggle for power to the death). They will employ their Rotfrontkämpferbund (Red Front fighters’ league) to try to derail Trump’s nomination, through die Herrschaft des Pöbels auf der Straße (mobocracy in the street). If he is nominated, they will use der Bund to try to deny him election. If he is elected notwithstanding all of their efforts before November, they will then turn der Bund loose to stifle any major reforms which he attempts to put through after his inauguration, whether with or especially without Congress, the Judiciary, and the bureaucracy behind him. And please spare me the innuendo that, by drawing upon this parallel, I am somehow suggesting that Trump is a modern American “Hitler” figure. Rather, my intuition tells me that Trump is the sort of individual, perhaps rough-hewn but basically honest, who might have saved Germany from Hitlerism, as well as from Bolshevism, had the good Germans who came forward in der Wiederstand (the resistance-movement) after 1933 been more prescient and better organized before then.
One may ask why America’s Bolsheviks have decided to come out of the closet to exhibit their true coloration by unleashing mobocracy in the street, when they can (and surely will) employ every kind of old-fashioned fraud familiar in American politics to steal the election. The answer is that they anticipate their inability to put into practice Stalin’s apperçu that who votes is less important than who counts the votes, and are prudently preparing for the worst possible eventuality—namely, that in these unsettled times even widespread electoral fraud may not deprive Trump of victory if the polling-places are inundated by a true “revolt of the masses”. Moreover, even the most effective techniques of electoral fraud will be useless after the election. No further elections of consequence will be held during the first two years in which Trump holds “the Office of President”. If he cannot be stifled during that period, perhaps “the Trump phenomenon” will prove its worth in successful Presidential actions, and then will demonstrate its longevity and strength in the next elections—with the Bolsheviks suffering defeat after defeat. Between elections, the Bolsheviks will not be able to rely exclusively upon their co-conspirators, fellow travelers, dupes, useful idiots, and assorted fools in Congress, the Judiciary, and the bureaucracy to stand up to Trump. For the righteous anger of legions of patriotic Americans lined up behind him will give all of them pause. To put iron in their cronies’ backbones, the Bolsheviks will need to provide them with muscle in the streets: namely, hordes of well-funded, well-drilled “protesters” and “dissenters” deployed to shout down, or violently shut down, every popular manifestation of support for Trump.
So, as President, Trump—and all of the patriotic Americans in his camp—will desperately need the Militia:
(i) to awaken, energize, authorize, mobilize, organize, equip, train, and deploy on his behalf those whom the Declaration of Independence styles “the good People”;
(ii) to protect Trump himself—because no part of the present governmental apparatus at any level of the federal system can be trusted to do so;
(iii) to put through fundamental reforms that can be accomplished by the President alone (“to execute the Laws of the Union”, including both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, perforce of Article I, § 8, cl. 15 and such statutes as 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f); 10 U.S.C. §§ 332 and 333; and 18 U.S.C. §§ 241 and 242), in particular against entrenched, recalcitrant, hostile, and disloyal bureaucrats and subversive private factions and other NGOs and special-interest groups; and especially
(iv) to leave puissant governmental institutions for “the good People” to use on their own at the State and Local levels in the event of an unavoidable and utterly destabilizing national crisis, probably centered in banking and haute finance, which breaks out during his Presidency.
With respect to points (ii) and (iii) in particular, one might recall the wisdom of General William Tecumseh Sherman who, when importuned to make himself a candidate for the White House, replied that “I would account myself a fool, a madman, an ass, to embark anew, at sixty-five years of age, in a career that may, at any moment, become tempest-tossed by the perfidy, the defalcation, the dishonesty or neglect of any of a hundred thousand subordinates utterly unknown to the President of the United States.” Quoted in Burke Davis, Sherman’s March (New York, New York: Vantage Books, 1988), at 298.
Inasmuch as der Rotfrontkämpferbund is now being deployed, a counterrevolutionary “white” force must be mobilized to oppose and defeat it. If loyal Americans want to avoid witnessing the rise of some extreme “right-wing” (actually, “right-socialistic”) “brown” force such as die Sturmabteilung (by default the main counterweight to the Communist street-gangs in Weimar Germany during her time of troubles)—which many desperate Americans will demand, and not a few will surely join, if they are offered no other powerful alternative—something else must be provided for them. This force must be raised from among “the good People”, there being no other source with the necessary loyalty, legal authority, self-interest, and sheer numbers requisite for the task at hand. Especially, it must be a force with explicit and unequivocal authority under the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, an establishment within the government, not a force the provenance of which can be traced only to some private political party, movement, or group.
Therefore, if Trump actually intends to be a constitutional “Commander in Chief” in the fullest sense in both law and fact—and, Heaven knows, if he does not intend as much then he should emulate General Sherman by not seeking “the Office of President” at all—he needs to promote the exercise of that high authority against America’s domestic enemies, through exhortation for and mobilization of what the Constitution itself declares to be uniquely “necessary to the security of a free State”, and to which it explicitly assigns the authority and responsibility “to execute the Laws of the Union”—and he must do this, in both words and deeds, immediately if not sooner. This is no time to play for time; for, as the old saying has it, time brings all things, bad as well as good. During his campaign, he must advocate revitalization of the Militia; and, after his election, he must take every action necessary and proper to that end. I suspect that, if he does grasp that nettle, he will be able to say of the contemporary Establishment what General Sherman said of the old Confederacy: “pierce the shell, and it’s all hollow inside”.
On the other hand, if—Heaven forfend!—Hillary Clinton should seize “the Office of President”, either by her own devices or (more likely) with the aid of anti-Trump back-stabbers in the Republican Party or some third-party “spoiler” candidate (from such as the Libertarian Party, which disastrously split the conservative vote in favor of a dyed-in-the-wool Clintonite in the last gubernatorial election in Virginia), she and the Bolsheviks behind her will not sit on their hands. Instead, emboldened by their triumph in scotching Trump, they will turn out der Rotfrontkämpferbund to advance their revolutionary agenda by deploying das Faustrecht (mob rule by the fist) against all of the “constitutionalist”, “patriotic”, “conservative”, “traditionalist”, and other politically, economically, and culturally “right-wing” groups in the country: First, to intimidate them and anyone who even tangentially supports them. Second, to turn the undecided citizenry against them when they try to defend themselves (denouncing even their verbal self-defense as “incitement to violence”). And third, to unleash para-militarized police-state oppression, some species of “martial law” jury-rigged under color of “emergency powers”, Vyshinsky-type prosecutors, and the kangaroo courts to suppress whichever Americans try to stand up for their natural and constitutional rights. This, the Bolsheviks expect, will bring about die Endlösung (the final solution) of the problems of popular sovereignty and popular self-government which so vex all totalitarians.
Be forewarned. One need not be a dabbler in the occult to foretell the future in this respect. Neither need one be much of a student of modern history to fear the accuracy in these times of the old adages that “no one learns anything from history other than that no one ever learns anything from history”, and that “we grow too soon old and too late smart”. (Personally, too, I appreciate the wisdom of the observation that “no man is ever taken for a prophet in his own country”. For I have long been struggling to educate Americans about the Militia—and, most recently, about the utter illegality of “martial law”—with about as much success as if I had been trying to sell a twelve-step program in humility and reticence to the Kardashians.)
Nonetheless, I believe that Mao Tse-tung was correct (albeit perhaps only accidentally or hypocritically so) when he wrote that “[t]he people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history”, that “[t]he masses have boundless creative power”, and that
[a]ll reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying, but in reality they are not so powerful. From a long-term point of view, it is not the reactionaries but the people who are really powerful.
Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung (Peking, China: Foreign Languages Press, 1966), at 118, 118, and 72. Thus, to turn the Bolsheviks’ own slogan to the purpose of America’s salvation: “There are no fortresses which ‘the good People’ cannot storm.”
In the final analysis, it is critically important that Trump should turn to “the good People”, trust “the good People”, empower “the good People”, and rely upon “the good People”. Not only for his own sake (which in the great scheme of things amounts to little), but also for their sake first and foremost (which amounts to everything). As modern Presidential campaigns illustrate, this country is steeped in its own bastard version of das Führerprinzip (the leader principle). As early as 1933, America had her “Chief” (Roosevelt), just as Germany had her Führer (Hitler), Italy her Duce (Mussolini), and Russia her Vozhd’ (Stalin), to be followed not long afterwards by Red China with her “Great Helmsman” (Mao). Today, all too many Americans view a President as someone whose purpose is to advance the agenda of their political party or special-interest group, not someone who should act unselfishly with and through WE THE PEOPLE so that THE PEOPLE themselves can become permanently the masters of their own destiny.
Such approval of, or at least acquiescence in, rule from “the top down” must in short order prove fatal to popular self-government. In principle, it denies the precept of the Declaration that “Governments * * * instituted among Men derive their just powers from the consent of the governed”—not from acceptance by “the governed” of “the leader’s” mere assertions of authority. In practice, it generates increasingly uncritical support for “the leader’s” program, then increasingly blind obedience to his dictates. Until society arrives at the terminal stage of suicidal political regimentation: Führer befehl, wir folgen (leader command, we follow).
Just as the strength of any pyramid resides at its base, not at its apex, so, too, with popular sovereignty—and with the Power of the Sword in WE THE PEOPLE’S hands for the purpose of “execut[ing] the Laws of the Union” through the Militia. In a constitutional republic, true authority and legitimate power never descend from “the top down”, but always arise—indeed, can be generated and exercised only—from “the bottom up”. Trump’s greatest achievement (were he capable of any truly great achievement) would be to put this truth into action. By one segment of the population he will be damned if he does; and, by another segment, damned if he does not; so he may as well be taken for a goat rather than a sheep. That goes for the rest of us, too.

It is exceedingly depressing that so many otherwise intelligent citizens have entered this election circus with renewed hope that a savior is in the race. I would bet all of my Children, Grand Children, and Great Grand Children’s lives that every single person running for President is under the thumb of the Banking Cartel. For those poor souls who still believe they are electing anyone, shame on you! The evidence that America is an oligarchy made-up of International Bankers, and the people have no power to elect a garbage pickup crew is the only sure bet in this Nation of beguiled fools. There is one, and only one way for America to elect their own leaders and Mr. Vieira has laid it all out above. If America does not have the guts to form a Constitutional Militia it is a Nation of fools, because that is the only way this Cluster F#$k will be fixed. Not in a day, and not in a year, but slowly like grass growing in summer; power will be transferred to the people.

Saint or Sinner, Government Eyes Are Watching Every Move You Make
By John W. Whitehead
April 18, 2016
This commentary is also
available at www.rutherford.org.
“The way things are supposed to work is that we’re supposed to know virtually everything about what [government officials] do: that’s why they’re called public servants. They’re supposed to know virtually nothing about what we do: that’s why we’re called private individuals. This dynamic – the hallmark of a healthy and free society – has been radically reversed. Now, they know everything about what we do, and are constantly building systems to know more. Meanwhile, we know less and less about what they do, as they build walls of secrecy behind which they function. That’s the imbalance that needs to come to an end. No democracy can be healthy and functional if the most consequential acts of those who wield political power are completely unknown to those to whom they are supposed to be accountable.” ― Glenn Greenwald
Government eyes are watching you.
They see your every move: what you read, how much you spend, where you go, with whom you interact, when you wake up in the morning, what you’re watching on television and reading on the internet.
Every move you make is being monitored, mined for data, crunched, and tabulated in order to form a picture of who you are, what makes you tick, and how best to control you when and if it becomes necessary to bring you in line.
Simply by liking or sharing this article on Facebook or retweeting it on Twitter, you’re most likely flagging yourself as a potential renegade, revolutionary or anti-government extremist—a.k.a. terrorist.
Yet whether or not you like or share this particular article, simply by reading it or any other articles related to government wrongdoing, surveillance, police misconduct or civil liberties is enough to get you categorized as a particular kind of person with particular kinds of interests that reflect a particular kind of mindset that might just lead you to engage in a particular kinds of activities.
Chances are, as the Washington Post reports, you have already been assigned a color-coded threat score—green, yellow or red—so police are forewarned about your potential inclination to be a troublemaker depending on whether you’ve had a career in the military, posted a comment perceived as threatening on Facebook, suffer from a particular medical condition, or know someone who knows someone who might have committed a crime.
In other words, you might already be flagged as potentially anti-government in a government database somewhere—Main Core, for example—that identifies and tracks individuals who aren’t inclined to march in lockstep to the police state’s dictates.
The government has the know-how.
As The Intercept recently reported, the FBI, CIA, NSA and other government agencies are increasingly investing in and relying on corporate surveillance technologies that can mine constitutionally protected speech on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in order to identify potential extremists and predict who might engage in future acts of anti-government behavior.
Now all it needs is the data, which more than 90% of young adults and 65% of American adults are happy to provide.
When the government sees all and knows all and has an abundance of laws to render even the most seemingly upstanding citizen a criminal and lawbreaker, then the old adage that you’ve got nothing to worry about if you’ve got nothing to hide no longer applies.
Apart from the obvious dangers posed by a government that feels justified and empowered to spy on its people and use its ever-expanding arsenal of weapons and technology to monitor and control them, we’re approaching a time in which we will be forced to choose between obeying the dictates of the government—i.e., the law, or whatever a government official deems the law to be—and maintaining our individuality, integrity and independence.
When people talk about privacy, they mistakenly assume it protects only that which is hidden behind a wall or under one’s clothing. The courts have fostered this misunderstanding with their constantly shifting delineation of what constitutes an “expectation of privacy.” And technology has furthered muddied the waters. However, privacy is so much more than what you do or say behind locked doors. It is a way of living one’s life firm in the belief that you are the master of your life, and barring any immediate danger to another person (which is far different from the carefully crafted threats to national security the government uses to justify its actions), it’s no one’s business what you read, what you say, where you go, whom you spend your time with, and how you spend your money.
Unfortunately, privacy as we once knew it is dead.
George Orwell’s 1984—where “you had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized”—has become our reality.
We now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed and controlled by our technology, which answers not to us but to our government and corporate rulers.
Consider that on any given day, the average American going about his daily business will be monitored, surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears. A byproduct of this new age in which we live, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior.
As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, this doesn’t even begin to touch on the corporate trackers that monitor your purchases, web browsing, Facebook posts and other activities taking place in the cyber sphere.
For example, police have been using Stingray devices mounted on their cruisers to intercept cell phone calls and text messages without court-issued search warrants.
Doppler radar devices, which can detect human breathing and movement within in a home, are already being employed by the police to deliver arrest warrants and are being challenged in court.
License plate readers, yet another law enforcement spying device made possible through funding by the Department of Homeland Security, can record up to 1800 license plates per minute. Moreover, these surveillance cameras can also photograph those inside a moving car. Reports indicate that the Drug Enforcement Administration has been using the cameras in conjunction with facial recognition software to build a “vehicle surveillance database” of the nation’s cars, drivers and passengers.
Sidewalk and “public space” cameras, sold to gullible communities as a sure-fire means of fighting crime, is yet another DHS program that is blanketing small and large towns alike with government-funded and monitored surveillance cameras. It’s all part of a public-private partnership that gives government officials access to all manner of surveillance cameras, on sidewalks, on buildings, on buses, even those installed on private property.
Couple these surveillance cameras with facial recognition and behavior-sensing technology and you have the makings of “pre-crime” cameras, which scan your mannerisms, compare you to pre-set parameters for “normal” behavior, and alert the police if you trigger any computerized alarms as being “suspicious.”
State and federal law enforcement agencies are pushing to expand their biometric and DNA databases by requiring that anyone accused of a misdemeanor have their DNA collected and catalogued. However, technology is already available that allows the government to collect biometrics such as fingerprints from a distance, without a person’s cooperation or knowledge. One system can actually scan and identify a fingerprint from nearly 20 feet away.
Developers are hard at work on a radar gun that can actually show if you or someone in your car is texting. Another technology being developed, dubbed a “textalyzer” device, would allow police to determine whether someone was driving while distracted. Refusing to submit one’s phone to testing could result in a suspended or revoked driver’s license.
It’s a sure bet that anything the government welcomes (and funds) too enthusiastically is bound to be a Trojan horse full of nasty, invasive surprises. Case in point: police body cameras. Hailed as the easy fix solution to police abuses, these body cameras—made possible by funding from the Department of Justice—will turn police officers into roving surveillance cameras. Of course, if you try to request access to that footage, you’ll find yourself being led a merry and costly chase through miles of red tape, bureaucratic footmen and unhelpful courts.
The “internet of things” refers to the growing number of “smart” appliances and electronic devices now connected to the internet and capable of interacting with each other and being controlled remotely. These range from thermostats and coffee makers to cars and TVs. Of course, there’s a price to pay for such easy control and access. That price amounts to relinquishing ultimate control of and access to your home to the government and its corporate partners. For example, while Samsung’s Smart TVs are capable of “listening” to what you say, thereby allowing users to control the TV using voice commands, it also records everything you say and relays it to a third party, e.g., the government.
Then again, the government doesn’t really need to spy on you using your smart TV when the FBI can remotely activate the microphone on your cellphone and record your conversations. The FBI can also do the same thing to laptop computers without the owner knowing any better.
Drones, which are taking to the skies en masse, are the converging point for all of the weapons and technology already available to law enforcement agencies. In fact, drones that can listen in on your phone calls, see through the walls of your home, scan your biometrics, photograph you and track your movements, and even corral you with sophisticated weaponry.
Technology has upped the stakes dramatically.
All of these technologies add up to a society in which there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence—especially not when the government can listen in on your phone calls, monitor your driving habits, track your movements, scrutinize your purchases and peer through the walls of your home.
In such an environment, you’re either a paragon of virtue, or you’re a criminal.
This is the creepy, calculating yet diabolical genius of the American police state: the very technology we hailed as revolutionary and liberating has become our prison, jailer, probation officer, Big Brother and Father Knows Best all rolled into one.
Thus, to be an individual today, to not conform, to have even a shred of privacy, and to live beyond the reach of the government’s roaming eyes and technological spies, one must not only be a rebel but rebel.
As Philip K. Dick, the visionary who gave us Minority Report and Blade Runner, advised:
If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.
There is no gray area any longer.

Who is Karen Hudes? An attorney for the World Bank who left employment with them in 2007 but continued to represent herself as a World Bank employee. This finally resulted in the World Bank bringing suit against her in their efforts to distance themselves from her and the Global Debt Facility.
Who does she really work for? The Global Debt Facility, sometimes called the World Bank Global Debt Facility. So you see, Ms. Hudes does, in a sense, work for the World Bank and any pretension otherwise on either part is just a question of political liability.
Exactly what is a “global debt facility”?
“A facility that issues debt securities, denominated in both United States dollars and foreign currencies, to investors around the world, using a variety of clearing systems to issue and administrate the securities. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are examples of global debt facilities.”
What does this mean? It means that all the money and credit that Karen Hudes is handing out to people is financed on bonds (as in “bondage” and “bondservant”) that are based on your labor and your public and private assets.
She is spreading your wealth around to keep you enslaved. Isn’t that nice of her?
Functionally, the Global Debt Facility is a “Drop Box” where the guilty banks can off-load stolen assets and continue to use them and invest them in behalf of “unknown” owners.
You are the unknown owners.
You are also the Priority Creditors of the United States of America, Inc., the UNITED STATES, INC., and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC.
What is really going on? Two gigantic international banking cartels are staging a “war” with each other for our benefit. One gang of thugs is appearing to push for the continuance of the fiat money system and the other gang of thugs is pushing for a gold-backed system. They are accusing each other of all sorts of things, but they are actually on the same team and working in collusion with each other.
Ms. Hudes is converting bonds into gold, because debt — your debt, supposedly—-is what the Global Debt Facility holds as assets.
This is in line with the original plan the Federal Reserve set up in 1913: consolidate ownership of all gold reserves, devalue the fiat currencies through inflation, and then sell the gold back to the grandchildren of the men you stole it from for 4,000-10,000% profit. This is why FDR confiscated American gold in the 1930’s. This is what happened in Germany in the 1920’s.
This artificially manufactured profit is the prize that the bankers, including Ms. Hudes, are after. That profit can only be achieved by forcing you to pay for it with your labor and your natural resources and that requires forcing you back onto the gold standard.
To the bankers. it doesn’t really matter if the product they are selling is gold or paper. Gold has little practical use, and isn’t actually valuable. They just make it seem valuable by making it scarce and cutting it in rounds and stamping an image on it. Nor, strictly speaking, is it “constitutional”. If you read the Constitution you will see that the States are the only ones limited to paying their debts in gold or silver coin. Back in 1789, the federal (that is, international) bankers were on the gold standard and didn’t want to accept any fiat money from the States. The same thing is happening now for different reasons.
So the ITC/OITC is playing the Good Guy, and Ms. Hudes and the World Bank and the Global Debt Facility are playing the Good Guys also, and we are left in the middle watching them sling lies at each other and at us—- but it is up to us to discern the Truth.
Neither “side” in this drama is operating out of anything but the most venal kind of self-interest and they are in fact nothing but two sides of the same coin. They are acting in collusion for mutual profit at the expense of the people they are supposed to serve, just like the Democrats and the Republicans.
Several months ago, the people of Switzerland got fed up with it, just like the people of Iceland. They told their government to clean up the banks. And now Ms. Hudes is attacking Switzerland. Go figure.
Anna von Reitz informed Karen Hudes of the Priority Creditor standing of the American People back in July of 2014 in an epic Facebook battle that Karen Hudes lost. Anna told Ms. Hudes that the Americans are “coming to breakfast” along with all the other people who are in fact owed trillions and who are in fact NOT responsible for the so-called “National Debt”.
For an understanding for why this is true and why you do NOT owe $18 trillion dollars of trumped up odious debt, get a copy of “You Know Something Is Wrong When…..An American Affidavit of Probable Cause”.
And then tell Ms. Hudes to stop spending your money and stop using it to buy off petty crooks and stop promising immunity to her pals in your names. You are the victims of this scam and she is an attorney acting in behalf of the rats who have defrauded you. Of course, she wants to give her bosses immunity and she wants you to assume their debts and she wants you to buy whole-hog into their gold-backed currency system.
Just remember that they are selling a product like everyone else and it truly does not matter to them if it is made out of gold or toilet paper. Also remember that we are the source of all this wealth and that we are perfectly capable of issuing our own currency —as we are supposed to do under the Constitution— all by ourselves.
When you see someone like Karen Hudes suddenly appearing as the leader of NLA and Oathkeepers and the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association —– ask yourselves this question: why? Could it be that these organizations were funded from the start by the same banks Ms. Hudes works for? Could it be that she bought some people off?
What does Karen Hudes— an attorney and a foreign bank attorney at that— have anything to do with our Grand Juries? Our actual Constitution? Or our Peacekeeping forces?
Ask yourselves— do you really want to be kept down on the farm paying off debts you don’t owe for foreign banks, or do you want them to pay off their own debts?
Do you want your country back and operating as it is supposed to, or are you content to be fed a pack of lies and Free Lunch stories and bribes instead?
Over the past five years Karen Hudes has fed the world a lot of bunko and it is thankfully archived all over YouTube and Google. Our favorite involves a Fairy Godfather named “Wolfgang Struck” who supposedly held a vast amount of gold that had been sitting gathering dust in the basement of the New York Federal Reserve Bank since the 1930’s. Ms. Hudes travelled the world telling people how Wolfgang, this wonderful philanthropist, was going to give them all $100,000 in gold just for the asking.
There was just a small detail omitted. In exchange for the $100,000 in gold, you gave up your claim forever to own your own body, your other public and private assets, and you also gave up any interest in a much larger fortune you are the lawful heir to.
That’s who and what Karen Hudes is.
And now you really need to take the time to find out who Anna von Reitz is and who Bruce Doucette is and who Gary Darby is —and why they are doing what they are doing and under what authority they are acting and most of all— you need to know that they are not arresting “all the Governors” or any other such nonsense as Ms. Hudes has been promoting.
Start researching and acting and thinking for yourselves and don’t trust anyone else to do it for you. Read the sworn public affidavit detailing the history of the crimes that have been committed against you and against your lawful government by the banks Ms. Hudes works for—- “You Know Something Is Wrong When……An American Affidavit of Probable Cause”
And then ask yourself again— how did Karen Hudes suddenly become Dictator in charge of NLA, Oathkeepers, and CSOPA?
See this article and over 100 others on Anna’s website here: www.annavonreitz.com
Unfortunately most of you reading this article will consider it a waste of time, but it is really like someone just gave you a suitcase full of gold coins. You see, if you considered this information valuable, you would read more of Anna’s work and realize how you have been robbed of everything you think you own, including your person, and you would devour every word on her site. There is a way to regain your personhood and your sovereign Nation, if only you would spend some time learning how. Now go back to your favorite TV show!

Sound money advocates are often hit with the charge of being “doom and gloomers.” Yes, we do warn that unsound monetary policies enable unsustainable fiscal commitments, which will lead eventually to a currency crisis.
Sound money advocates are also often portrayed as party poopers. Yes, we do seek to take away the bottomless punch bowl of easy money and replace it with something more solid.
However, we are not pessimists or killjoys by nature. To the contrary, we are quite optimistic about the ability of genuinely free markets to generate ever greater levels of prosperity for ever greater numbers of people. To advocate hard money, as in a gold and/or silver standard, is simply to be a hard-nosed realist about the dangers of giving governments the power to issue unbacked fiat currencies.
The case for hard money is based on the proposition that real wealth is generated by productive activity in the real economy. When governments and central banks assume the power to set interest rates artificially low, to expand the supply of money and credit at will, and to bail out “too big to fail” financial institutions, they are engaging in massive wealth transfers. They are stealing purchasing power away from productive workers in the real economy and transferring it to bankers and bureaucrats.
As the late economist and Nobel Laureate Friedrich A. Hayek noted, “With the exception only of the period of the gold standard, practically all governments of history have used their exclusive power to issue money to defraud and plunder the people.”
Trade Deficits after Gold Abandonment
Since the U.S. completely abandoned the gold standard in 1971, trade deficits have exploded, government spending has grown out of control, and the national debt has skyrocketed. Even more troubling than the size of the debt officially on the books ($19.2 trillion and counting) is the much larger problem of total unfunded commitments, which some estimates put at more than $200 trillion.
Politicians have written Social Security and Medicare IOUs to today’s voters that future generations will be responsible for making good on. The problem is that promised future entitlement spending, plus interest on the existing debt, will outstrip all projected tax revenues.
Entitlement Spending Bubble
Politicians have leveraged the fiat monetary system to make spending commitments that would be unthinkable and impossible under a gold standard. As a consequence, a financial crisis of much greater magnitude than we saw in 2008 looms in the not too distant future.
Some in Washington talk of entitlement reform, but they have no sense of urgency about it. After all, the government can always borrow more money into existence. It can always find a willing buyer for new bonds at the Federal Reserve. The government may never have to default on its unpayable debts or cut benefits that it can’t afford to pay. Through the magic of unlimited money creation, it can sustain the unsustainable.
But not without cost. The costs of inflating the currency supply in order to enable runaway government spending growth will be borne by people in the productive real economy. Businesses and wage earners will see their purchasing power transferred away from them through a combination of taxation and insidious currency debasement.
In a recent Bloomberg interview, former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan admitted that the economic road ahead looks grim. “Productivity is dead in the water,” he said. According to Greenspan, entitlement spending “will grow wholly independently of what the ability to fund it is… Nobody wants to touch it. And that is gradually crowding out capital investment, and that’s crowding out productivity, and it’s crowding out the standards of living.”
Back in 1983, Alan Greenspan headed up a National Commission on Social Security Reform. Greenspan convinced Congress to raise taxes and gradually increase the retirement age in order to “save” Social Security. The program ran surpluses for a few years thereafter. In the big picture, though, he must have known that all they were doing was kicking the can down the road. Benefits means testing and other measures that might actually put the program on a long-term sustainable fiscal path were deemed politically unacceptable.
Social Security’s Path to Insolvency
Ever the political pragmatist, Greenspan, throughout his tenure as Fed chief, enabled the expansion of debt spending with easy money policies. Greenspan’s loose money also helped blow up bubbles in the stock and housing markets. The bubble now building in unfunded government liabilities dwarfs any previous bubble.
Unfortunately, there is nothing to suggest that a fiscal turnaround is in the cards. The latest report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) shows the federal budget deficit will rise steadily in the years ahead, starting this year with a $534 billion projected deficit. By 2022, the annual deficit will exceed $1 trillion and get even worse in the succeeding years.
These aren’t even the pessimistic scenarios. The actual numbers could end up being worse than CBO projections, especially if a severe or protracted recession hits.
In the years ahead, the Federal Reserve will undertake the gargantuan task of keeping the system going despite its insolvency – in other words, bailing out the government itself.
What will finally stop the madness? A new monetary system based on sound money principles.

The most dangerous man in America knows — without any doubt whatsoever — that the U.S. Federal Government executed the false flag terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. They know that this highly calculated and synthetic form of terrorism was perpetrated to terrorize the American people into supporting a fake War on Terror. They know that 9/11 was a multi-decade conspiracy (based on Operation Northwoods) that was perpetrated by the NWO ruling cabal as a means to foist a One World Government upon the world community of nations. They actually know this and much more about what truly happened in New York City and Washington, D.C. on that fateful day of profound betrayal and deceit.
9/11: Russia Presents Evidence Against US, UK And Israel Co-Conspirators
The most dangerous man in America knows — with absolute certainty — that John F. Kennedy was executed by the CIA which was acting on behalf of the International Banking Cartel and Military-Industrial Complex. They know that Kennedy, at the time, was actually the most dangerous man in America and had to be eliminated if the New World Order (NWO) agenda was to proceed forthwith. They also know that every U.S. president since JFK has been handpicked by the World Shadow Government and not elected by the American people.
CIA & Company: The Real Plotters Behind JFK’s Assassination
The most dangerous man in America knows that the U.S. electoral process is nothing but a sham whereby the ruling elites choose in advance both candidates every four years. They know that these pre-selected pawns have been fastidiously vetted so as to be sufficiently assured that the selected ones will never leave the NWO reservation. They know that both main party candidates will always be considered the lesser of the two evils by their respective constituencies. In this way the electorate forever experiences the pendulum of presidential politics being swung to greater extremes with each successive election cycle.
Circus Politics: Will Our Freedoms Survive Another Presidential Election?
The most dangerous man in America knows — without a shadow of a doubt — that the Oklahoma City Bombing was a government-coordinated false flag bombing that was designed to greatly diminish the patriot movement that was growing in the wake of the President Bush-sponsored Savings and Loan scandal. They know that such ‘homegrown’ terrorism in OK City was manufactured by the Clinton Administration in order to reverse the fast-growing trend toward militia formation around the country. They also know that the anger was clearly brewing then and that the banking elites were determined to quell in advance any threats to their safety.
Oklahoma City Bombing: All Evidence Point To The U.S. Federal Government
The most dangerous man in America knows — with complete assurance — that the 1993 WACO massacre of innocents was also carried out to tar and feather gun owners everywhere so that all firearm-carrying citizens would be looked at as radicals. They also know that such a conflagration would be forever associated with any type of religious practice that was not patently mainstream. They know that all forms of unorthodox spiritual pursuit were purposefully linked to the Branch Davidian sect at Waco just as they were to the Jonestown massacre and the Heaven’s Gate cult mass suicide (read slaughter).
WACO: WHAT REALLY HAPPENED
The most dangerous man in America knows that the United States of America was socially engineered, with meticulous deliberation, into the “Military Arm of the New World Order” . They know that every major government initiative that has occurred in the USA over the past 100 years has transformed the political class into a war-mongering gang of jackals.

The most dangerous man in America knows — with unshakable belief — that the Federal Reserve System (FED) was established by an international crime syndicate in order to fleece the American people. They know that a Federal Reserve Note is neither federal, nor held in reserve. They know that a “Note” is a debt instrument, not a hard asset like an ounce of gold or silver. They also know that the Federal Reserve Bank is an unlawful banking entity that was established by the unlawful Federal Reserve Act and that it is utterly bankrupt. They know the FED has usurped the constitutional power of the U.S. Treasury to the great detriment of the American people.
Who Owns The Federal Reserve?
The most dangerous man in America knows — beyond any doubt — that the Internal Revenue Service is nothing but a glorified collection agency that enforces the unlawful IRS tax code with violent tactics and thuggery. They know that the IRS Commissioners have been unable to point to a single law that permits them to properly collect income tax. They also know that the IRS is guilty of functioning as a multi-decade protection racket operating in violation of RICO and therefore subject to prosecution under the applicable federal statutes.
The most dangerous man in America knows — with total confidence — that the stock market is nothing but the largest gambling casino on Earth.

Agenda 21 and obedience toward the dictates of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. They also know that chemtrail aerosols have many chemical compounds and weaponized biologicals which are extremely harmful to Earth’s biota, and are bioengineered to be especially injurious to human life.
U.S. Government Spraying Tons Of Toxic Coal Fly Ash Into Atmosphere Via Chemtrails
The most dangerous man in America knows that the global warming scam was started in the post World War II years after the entire Solar System showed signs of systemic transmutation. They know that this natural occurrence was the result of forces far outside of the province of mankind. They also know that the geoengineering regime was then formulated in order to exacerbate the warming trends so that a new Global CO2 Management Regime and Carbon Control Matrix could be imposed on the world community of nations as a precursor to a One World Government.
NWO Cabal Pursues Total Dominion Over The Earth’s Weather And Natural Resources
The most dangerous man in America knows that the nation’s water supplies have been fluoridated for many decades in order to slowly poison the American people.

They know that injecting infants and young children with dangerous chemical and biological agents will short-circuit the normal immune response as well as negatively affect immune system development. They know that vaccines have been used for the deliberate infection of children and have provided a primary vector of spreading certain diseases across the planet. They also know that vaccination programs are routinely chipping children with unknown bioengineered technologies in order to produce specific outcomes.
THE VACCINE CONSPIRACY: U.S. Government Colludes With BIG Pharma To Poison The America People
The most dangerous man in America knows that the world food supply which is being produced by Agribusiness adheres strictly to the chemical agriculture paradigm. They know that untold numbers and amounts of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, bovine growth hormones, etc. are systematically utilized throughout every phase of farming and animal husbandry. They also know that much food production is taking place in areas which are exposed to nuclear power plant radioactivity, industrial chemical pollution and microwave frequencies.
The most dangerous man in America knows that the whole planet is now swirling in a veritable soup of electro-pollution and microwave frequencies and ionizing radiation. They know that microwave ovens have been destroying cooked foods for decades and that microwave towers are disseminating dangerous frequencies wherever they exist. They know that every nuclear power plant is in the state of its own type of accelerating technospheric breakdown and that society is now exposed to many vectors of radioactivity which are inexorably causing a mutation of the human species.

The most dangerous man in America knows that the entire world has been owned and operated by Corporate America, a division of Anglo-American Corporate, Inc. which is in turn a subsidiary of the Vatican, INC. They know that the Global Economic and Financial System provides the superstructure by which the masses of the world are held in a debt prison. They also know that the banking and investment banking companies are tasked with the administration of an oppressive system of usury and debt slavery which keeps countless residents of the planet in the state of lifelong servitude.
The Government-Corporate Complex Takes Complete Control Of The USA
The most dangerous man in America knows that the national security state (NSS) that has been painstakingly established since the U.S. Government-sponsored 9/11 terror attacks was not conceived to protect Americans from its enemies. They know that the NSS was implemented with all deliberate speed to protect the plutocratic ruling elites and kleptocratic political class from the citizenry. The NWO cabal knew that, sooner or later, the American people would become aware that all terror is synthesized for the purpose of controlling them, the populace. They also knew that, when that day of reckoning occurred, all hell would break loose French Revolution-style.
SERCO: Foreign Outsourcing Giant Takes Over the US National Security State

STRATFOR Chief Reveals Zio-Anglo-American Plot For World Domination
The most dangerous man in America knows that vast majority of human beings are hopelessly addicted to deception. They know that this is the primary reason for the bleak state of the world. They are acutely aware that the addiction to deception is, in fact, the primordial deception invariably found at the roots of all the other addictions. They know that, as long as the masses are slaves to this particular addiction and therefore to the many other well-known addictions which plague humankind, the challenge of transforming the planetary civilization into an enlightened and peaceful one remains exceedingly elusive and quite daunting.
Are The Markets HOPELESSLY Addicted to Deception?
Now YOU know why YOU are “The most dangerous man or woman in America”.
The upshot of this discussion is that when the American people really do wake up, the “military arm of the NWO” will collapse in a day and a night. Then, there is no one nation or other entity to enforce the global tyranny that has relentlessly terrorized the planet for so many centuries, and even over millennia.
This is why YOU are “The most dangerous man or woman in America”!
Let’s get busy … … … creating many other “dangerous men and women in America”.

What are the sources of the interminable wars throughout the world today? Why are militant Muslims terrorizing Europe and America? What has caused the turmoil in Ukraine? Is Vladimir Putin desirous of reigniting the Cold War? Does he represent a dangerous threat to the West as his predecessors in the Kremlin did? What role do our own politicians and intellectuals play in this increasing eagerness for war?
The answers to the above questions will be determined greatly by one’s basic ideological beliefs. Statist mentalities, of course, see things differently than will those who espouse freedom and constitutional government.
For example, Dick Cheney will disagree vehemently with Ron Paul as to the sources, the motives, the morals, and the ultimate consequences of today’s wars. The only thing that rational minds seem to agree upon is that hatred, fear and aggression are pushing up the thermometer that measures social peace among people in the modern world. What follows is an attempt to answer the “whys” of this rapidly metastasizing problem.
The Military-Industrial Complex
In 1987, George F. Kennan, the famous historian-diplomat who shaped America’s Cold War policy of containment towards the Soviet Union in the post WW II era, wrote:
“Were the Soviet Union to sink tomorrow under the waters of the ocean, the American military-industrial establishment would have to go on, substantially unchanged, until some other adversary could be invented. Anything else would be an unacceptable shock to the American economy.” 
When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, many in the West expected that the massive militarization of American society existent between 1941-1991 would be cut back. The huge budget expenditures toward weaponry and fighting could be greatly reduced. Peace was at hand. But it didn’t happen. Washington’s establishment elites shifted into a higher gear of militarization instead. They quickly latched onto what Kennan was referring to. A new enemy had to be found, or the economy so dependent on a war footing would collapse. That enemy was given to them in militant Islamism’s desire to wage war on the West by means of violent jihad.
The neoconservative elites of Washington (led intellectually by Bill Kristol, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Pearle, Robert Kagan, etc.) had always been bellicose in foreign policy affairs, and were perpetually on the make for new conflicts. Fellow compatriot, Andrew Krepinevich at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, testified in front of Congress in 1999 that what was needed in the post 1991 era was a “new Pearl Harbor,”  which would give the country a reason to flex its muscles of exceptionalism to the world. Kristol’s gang agreed wholeheartedly. The attack on the World Trade Center two years later would provide that “new Pearl Harbor” for them.
In other words, militant Islamism has declared war on the West. Thus the nations of the West must retaliate, and America is more than willing to do so. Its military-industrial complex, in fact, has a built in need for war in order to avoid a major collapse of the American economy.
Thus Orwell’s famous irony – that the dictatorships of modernity would eventually engage in “perpetual war for perpetual peace” – comes true. War has become a constant that all leaders resign themselves to, and many actively work for. Militant Islamists pursue violent jihad against an infidel West, while bellicose neoconservatives in America wage war to prop up their sagging economy.
This explains the Islamic source of war and the American source of war, but what is the role of Russia in all this? Are they the ominous war threat that our leaders in Washington continually proclaim them to be?
The Russian Threat
The historical view of Russia has always been that of a gargantuan imperial power that wishes to control much of the world via the Czars of earlier times or the Leninists and Marxists of modern times. America, under the guidance of thinkers like George Kennan, largely accepted this view throughout the past 70 years. But we must ask ourselves, is it still relevant? Does Vladimir Putin want to extend the ideology of the Czars, of Lenin and Marx, and perpetuate an imperialistic policy regarding Europe? Does he want to rule the world, or is he satisfied with ruling Russia?
Contrary to what the Washington elites tell us, all indications are that Putin is not an imperialist. He is basically a Russian nationalist who wants preservation and protection for Russia as a nation. All his moves and policies over the past 15 years have been toward this goal.
Unfortunately Washington’s neoconservative ideologues have a dominating need, as Kennan pointed out in 1987, to create a continual source of enemies to justify the continuance of massive military budgets to preserve their positions of power, both nationally and personally. Therefore Putin must be painted in ominous colors to the citizens of America.
Nowhere is this warped outlook more evident than in the Ukraine situation that has evolved over the last two years. David Stockman, former budget director under Ronald Reagan, has pointed out that the February 2014 coup in Kiev was not instigated by Russia, but by an aggressive Washington in conjunction with NATO. In violation of the 1990 agreement between George H.W. Bush and Gorbachev to keep Ukraine neutral, Washington’s goal was now to incorporate Ukraine into NATO and push missile bases up to the border of Russia.
Naturally Putin was horrified at the thought of missile bases on his border, as we would be if Russia was in Mexico with missile bases. He then took action to increase his military along the Ukraine border. And he sped up his ongoing plans to reincorporate Crimea into Russia (with its vital warm water port at Sevastopol) by inviting the citizens of Crimea to rejoin Russia. Crimea had been purchased from the Turks by Catherine the Great in 1783. It had therefore been part of Russia for over 170 years when in 1954 Krushchev inexplicably made it part of Ukraine. The citizens of Crimea voted in 2014 to return to Mother Russia. 
This should have ended the matter. The people of Crimea speak Russian. Their culture and traditions are Russian. Russia has every right to do this. But unfortunately the neoconservative elites of Washington have their own agenda that they wish to promote – “militaristic global hegemony.” Thus Russia has been demonized into an enemy. Yet they are not the aggressors here. Washington and NATO are.
This then is why war is metastasizing throughout our lives today. Islamist jihad grows in the Mideast, and military imperialism dominates neoconservative Washington. War fever is built into each of these societies, the former for metaphysical reasons and the latter for pragmatic reasons.
We in America have little control over the basic motives of Muslim societies, but we do have influence over our own society. We as a people must open our minds to a new foreign policy paradigm that makes peace with Russia and thus reduces the nuclear threat. We must cultivate revolutionary political leaders who view global reality through more rational lenses and are prepared to incur some economic shocks in order to dismantle large portions of the military-industrial complex.
Capitalism is a vigorous system that can shed its dependency on war and weaponry and convert to a peacetime economy. It won’t be without some temporary misery, but it can be done if the American people are left free to produce. Until this takes place, there will be no cessation of the “perpetual war for perpetual peace” that presently plagues our lives.
Hopefully this article will open your eyes to the screams of agony our ears have heard. WAR IS A RACKET! And Americans better wise up before the rest of the world becomes tired of our militaristic hegemony and gangs up on us. Our greatest objective should be to have citizens a hundred years old who have never been in a war. Self defense is the only justifiable involvement in war. And our innocence must be proven beforehand. Evil men must be identified and kept away from our decision makers. Those who defend war to support a profitable economy must be watched diligently less they accumulate political power and lead the war mongers astray. It is way past time for our citizens to be made aware of homo-sapiens defective nature, and contain it. This old man has abandoned his narcissistic nature, and accepted his limitations. I highly recommend more adults do the same.
I AM A HATER
By Coach Dave Daubenmire
April 14, 2016
I have finally decided to come clean. I suspect that many of you have realized it for years. In fact, my inbox usually fills up very quickly after I write one of my stinging commentaries.
“You are a hater!” goes the usual template. The writer then goes off on a litany of accusations which supposedly prove that I am a hater.
In the earlier stages of my somewhat “public” life as a “conservative” commentator I used to spend valuable time trying to convince the email trolls of my virtue and the fact that they are mischaracterizing my character.
Eventually I grew tired of the rather boring ad nauseam, semi conjunctive apology for a trait that I didn’t possess. I finally figured out that trying to convince haters that I was not a hater was a waste of valuable time. After a bit of introspection I decided it was time to come clean and admit what all those who don’t know me had concluded they know about me.
I am a hater. I finally admit it. I am a hater. And a proud one, I might add.
I hate what homosexuality does to people. I hate the destructive nature of that debaucherous behavior and the impact it has on the individual. I hate the pain that it causes to innocent parents and siblings. I hate that it is taught to our children as normal behavior.
I hate abortion. I hate the fact that precious little babies created in the image of God never get the chance to have their pictures appear on a refrigerator. I hate that unsuspecting grandparents are having their grandchildren murdered without their knowledge. I hate that most women live a life of regret after they have killed their unborn child. I hate that Planned Parenthood which makes millions of dollars off of killing the innocent, is viewed as honorable. I hate that our government forces us to pay taxes to fund the slaughter. I hate that most Christians don’t do a darn thing to stop it.
I hate that my government lies to me. I hate that they spend money that they have no right to spend. I hate that the control of our money lies in the hands of a privately owned bank and that the people have no control over how the value of the money is regulated. I hate that the government sends our young people to fight and die in meaningless wars. I hate that they live by a different set of rules. I hate that the elections are pretty much rigged. I hate that I am forced to “voluntarily” pay an income tax for which I will be punished if I fail to “voluntarily” comply. I hate that crime has become big business for a corrupt injustice system.
I hate our “public” education system. I hate that the schools do not teach the values of the public but, instead, teach the values they want the public to hold. I hate the National Education Association and their endorsement of candidates who support child-killing. I hate the fact that millions of inner city students are trapped in prison-like neighborhood schools where their chance of advancement in society is blocked by those same money-grubbing unions and the sold out political candidates that they support. I hate that our children are taught lies. I hate that Christian parents continue to send their children into those Humanistic indoctrination centers. I hate that every church in America doesn’t have a means by which they can provide a Christian education to ever child in their flock. I hate that a Godless education is no education at all and that our pastors continue to be complicit in propping up such an anti-Christ system.
I hate that so many people believe so much that isn’t true. I hate that the media lies so blatantly in their coverage of what is really happening in America. I hate that they cover up so much of what is real news and cover so little of what really is. I hate that news is now considered fair and balanced rather than just…well…news. I hate the fact that you have to have blond hair and wear short skirts to make it on some of our favorite news channels. I hate their hidden agendas.
I hate that mothers have to put their children in daycare. I hate that many women miss the precious early years of their children’s life…time that can never be recaptured…because they have to work in order to pay the overbearing and odious tax bill that the fraudulent IRS holds over their heads. I hate that women value career over childbearing. I hate that our economic system forces many mothers to choose between full time work and full time Mommy.
I hate adultery. I hate what the shack-up culture is doing to American society. I hate that 70% of babies born in the black community are born into a home where there is no father. I hate the fact that men no longer take the responsibility of being fathers because the women have lost the value of their virtue. I hate that chivalry is no longer honored. I hate that at our current rate of reproduction the White European Christian Population that built our great nation will soon see their grandchildren become slaves on the continent that they formed. I hate that motherhood and fatherhood are so cheaply valued. I hate that young people can’t see that parenthood is the most noble job they will ever have in their entire life. I hate the sissification of men.
I hate that more people don’t hate. I hate that we have been trained to love things that are repulsive. I hate that we are forced to tolerate things that we shouldn’t tolerate. I hate that most people so easily give-in to social pressure. I hate that pastors have invited worldliness into the church and that they have become so comfortable with it that they can’t even recognize it. I hate it that no one judges anything anymore.
I hate that we have become such poor witnesses for the God we claim to serve. I hate that we have rejected the Christian values that our fathers’ generation fought and died for. I hate that we don’t value their sacrifice. I hate that we laugh at their values. I hate that we love the things that they hated.
I hate what America has become. I hate that we have rejected God. I hate that nobody seems to care about that anymore. I hate that our nation no longer serves or honors the precepts of the Christian God. I hate that not enough of us hate the right things. I hate that most Americans don’t know that God also hates.
People I love…sin I hate. I hate that I am hated for boldly pointing that out.

Dear Coach Dave,
If you have ever read one of my nasty comments you probably will not appreciate this one either, but the inner truth is, I’m a lot more like you than you are like me, as I too am filled with the same kind of HATE that you are. In fact I probably hate even more than you do. I could blame this condition on many things, but the most infuriating one is the self acquired ignorance of our fellow citizens who seem willing to die for an illegal Federal Government, and reject the obligation of learning America’s nefarious history. You see Coach, our people have no sense of responsibility because they are too addicted to their particular brand of entertainment to sacrifice their time to learning. If they, and maybe even you had any idea how much evil has been done to untold millions of people world wide (not just us) there would surely be wailing in the streets of D.C., and there would be politicians hanging from every light pole. So keep on hating evil everywhere it raises its ugly head Coach, it gives us hope! And it makes me proud to be an independent human being, instead of an intellectually castrated wump with no sense of independence! Wumps have never heard of the Declaration of independence! Let alone read it. I am a Hoosier by birth and now proudly a Western North Carolina resident, and definitely not a United States Slave. Read everything you can find written by Judge Anna Von Reitz.

NOTE: The following article was designed to be Part 2 to our last article entitled “An ‘Establishment’ Always Evolves Into An All-Powerful Oligarchy.”
I had a dream the other night. I dreamt that, as a well-known writer, (I said it was a dream) I was invited to one of the secret meetings of the Bilderberg Group, (or Bilderberg Club as they are sometimes called)
In my rather vivid dream, as I was about to take my seat at the conference table where the future of the world was to be discussed, a very official looking fellow with white gloves came up to me and shoved an envelope in my hand. I started to open the envelope as I sat down. As I unfolded the paper, the heading at the top, in big bold, gold letters, read: “The Bilderberg Club”. The letter started out:
Dear Mr. Ewart:
“As you know, this group meets in secret every year. What is discussed here must never leave this room. Should you decide to publicly report on anything that takes place here, you will be discredited from the highest level of government, business and banking. Your books, articles and essays will be black listed in every single venue, worldwide, your family will be hounded, you will never be able to open a bank account or borrow money again and your life will be in constant danger for as long as you live.”
“As strict as these covenants are, we sincerely hope that your attending this conference will be enlightening and we wish to extend to you every courtesy. We trust your experience will be a memorable event in your life.”
A memorable event, indeed! I wondered in my dream, could they have this much power? Probably!
I suddenly awoke from the dream in a sweat and started to think about these events. Why would central bankers, defense experts, mass-media press barons, government ministers, prime ministers, royalty, international financiers and political leaders from Europe and North America want to meet in the first place? Why in secret? What would they be discussing?
It turns out that there are highly suspicious connections between these types of groups, like the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group and the Council on Foreign Relations. They have overlapping memberships and similar goals. Two of the groups, the Bilderberg and Council on Foreign Relations, have very strong ties to the Rockefeller Family. Remember. There was another secret meeting of the titans of finance and industry that met on Jekyll Island in 1907 that became the catalyst for the 16th Amendment (1913), ushering in the Federal Reserve and the Internal Revenue Service. The incestuous relationships in the banking industry, specifically Chase Bank and Goldman Sachs, is well documented. David D. Rockefeller, now over 100 years old, was chairman of J P. Morgan Chase Bank for many years. J. P. Morgan was so rich he helped bail out the U. S. Government in the crash of 1895.
NOTE: During Hoover’s Administration, at the request of the President, the Rockefeller Foundation funded a study by the University of Illinois and Harvard University on how to manipulate people through their subconscious minds. Why would government do this in a free nation?
THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS: Towards the end of World War I, a working fellowship of about 150 scholars called “The Inquiry” was tasked to brief President Woodrow Wilson about options for the postwar world when Germany was defeated. This academic band, including Wilson’s closest adviser and long-time friend “Colonel” Edward M. House, as well as noted journalist Walter Lippmann, met to assemble the strategy for the postwar world. “The Inquiry” group later became the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). In the late 1930s, the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Foundation began contributing large amounts of money to the Council on Foreign Relations. CFR’s impact on U. S. foreign policy, for right or wrong, is legendary and has been and still is, almost immeasurable. Thousands of politicians, big-bank CEO’s and captains of industry are members of this elite club.
THE BILDERBER GROUP: The Group is an annual private conference of 120 to 150 people of the European and North American political elite, experts from industry, finance, academia, and the media, established in 1954. The group’s original goal was promoting Atlanticism, strengthening US-European relations and preventing another world war. (Wasn’t the UN supposed to do that?) Their theme is to “bolster a consensus around free market Western capitalism and its interests around the globe”. It all sounds so noble and worthy, except that in 2001, Denis Healey, a Bilderberg group founder and, a CFR steering committee member for 30 years, said: “To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn’t go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing.”
Daniel Estulin’s 2006 book “The Secrets of the Bilderberg Club”, describes the Group as a “sinister clique, manipulating the public to install a world government that knows no borders and is not accountable to anyone but itself.”
THE TRILATERAL COMMISSION: The Trilateral Commission is purported to be a non-governmental, non-partisan discussion group founded by David Rockefeller in July 1973, to foster closer cooperation among North America, Western Europe, and Japan. Zbigniew Brzezinski, United States National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981, a professor at Columbia University, and a Rockefeller advisor who was a specialist on international affairs, left his post to organize the group.

Please take note of the Rockefeller connection in these groups.
We happen to know a little bit about human nature and what We know about men of wealth and power does not bode well for anyone below the top of the food chain. As we mentioned in our previous article, the three vices of powerful men are lust, lust and lust; lust for sex, lust for money and lust for power, in no particular order, or gender identity. Examples of all three lusts have “painted” 5,000 years of our alleged civilized history, in living and sometimes unprintable color.
In most cases, once an individual has reached the pinnacle of immense wealth, they usually don’t want to stop there. They either want to increase their wealth even further, or they aspire to power, political power, power over people and power over the masses. It is true that some wealthy, powerful men do give back generously through philanthropy, probably to assuage their feelings of guilt for being so rich.
Nevertheless, wealth and power provide the opportunity to satisfy their lust for sex, which is also characterized by clandestine meetings where the participants are sworn to secrecy on threat of bodily harm.
Unfortunately, history is filled with rich, over-sexed, powerful and sometimes crazy men, exercising dictatorial power over groups, societies, cultures and nations. When men of wealth and political power meet, especially in secret, can the outcome be good for individual freedom, liberty, property rights, or sovereignty of any country? Using any means of inductive or deductive reasoning, the answer has to be a resounding NO!
The fact is, bigness, concentration of top-down power and out-of-control entities has buried WE THE PEOPLE in frustration, confusion and the feeling of helplessness, if not becoming abject debt slaves. America’s Founding Fathers were very concerned about who had control in the federal government and that is why they established the separation of powers doctrine between the executive, legislative and judicial branches. Unfortunately, the separation of powers doctrine has been seriously blurred and now it is abundantly apparent that each branch of government supports the other two branches, against the consent of the governed.
From the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson wrote: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,”
But as government got “bigger,” Jefferson’s “consent of the governed” phrase became essentially meaningless, as our representatives and senators assumed more and more power and turned government service into a lifetime career. In response to government bigness and power, business and labor had to get bigger and more powerful in order to have influence with big government. World Central Banks merged into a colluding consortium to protect their own interests.
Then big government started handing off some of their power and authority to bureaucracies, who then got bigger and assumed more power and authority than was ever dreamed of by the Founding Fathers. Since the “consent of the governed” was perceived to be powerless, special interest groups (socialists. radical environmentalists and one-world-order types) began getting bigger and more powerful in order to have more influence on big government and government policy. As government, bureaucracies, business, unions and special interest groups got larger and more powerful, they began to lose control, became arrogant and careless with their processes, personnel and finances and careless with constitutional limits. They are so out of control now that we hear never-ending reports of ineptness, gross negligence, waste, fraud, abuse and corruption.
So when bankers, industrialists, the press, ministers, prime ministers, royalty, international financiers and politicians get together for a big secret meeting, what would a normal, reasonable and prudent person conclude about what would be discussed? Two specific items come instantly to mind: 1) concentration of their power and 2) manipulation of the masses for profit, behavioral control and for social and environmental agendas that run contrary to the idea of God-given, unalienable, individual freedom. Social justice, environmental protection and man-caused global warming studies, reports and policies are nothing more than smoke screens to the real agenda, control over the money, the property and the freedom of the world’s masses, for the benefit of the conference attendees. To look for altruistic motives in the secret meetings of these persons of influence, is an affront to a rational person’s intellect.
The point that we are trying very hard to make here is that the ultimate power and control is still inherent in WE THE PEOPLE, if the PEOPLE are of one mind and that one mind is based on a solid foundation of the fundamentals of liberty. But we are so fragmented. divided and diverse, becoming of one mind is problematic. Until we are of one mind, bigness, concentration of power in oligarchies and out-of-control entities will be our undoing and our enslavement.
Men in dark suits, blue smoke and backroom deals, as in members of the Bilderberg Club, the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations will, in the end, work against WE THE PEOPLE and eventually erode freedom and liberty, or erase it all together. The war we face in keeping wealthy, powerful and lustful men from dominating and controlling the lives of all individuals is eternal. It is WE THE PEOPLE who allowed bigness and the concentration of financial, political and economic power to become our enemy, by not paying attention and by not fully exercising our right and duty as “the consent of the governed”.
President Woodrow Wilson said in 1919: “We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” The small group of dominant men is called an oligarchy.
This small group of influential, lustful, dominant men will have their way with us, if we refuse to challenge them and dedicate our lives to keeping their three vices under reasonable control.
Here are two relevant quotes from groups of men who meet in secret and plot control of the free world, in their attempts to implement the new-world-order.
“The new world order will be built as an end run on national sovereignty. Eroding it, piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault.” Council on Foreign Relations Journal 1974, pg. 558
“We will have world government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether world government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” Paul Warburg, CFR & Architect of the Federal Reserve System in an address to the U.S. Senate 2/17/1950
It’s coming unless WE THE PEOPLE stop it.

If the millions of people wasting their time on Facebook and other social media would read Ron’s articles instead, just maybe there would be some hope for America. However, I truly have no doubt they never will. It seems to me that our Nation has become the land of the irresponsible and the home of cowards. Never in my wildest dreams have I ever imagined such ineptitude as is currently being displayed by our citizens. With only 2084 words this article above should have created a firestorm of revolt, self disgust, and embarrassment that concluded in a mass invasion of Washington D.C. Politicians of every level should be quivering in fear of reprisal. Traffic should be at a standstill, and the media industry should have been abandoned from embarrassment, as no other organization has been more derelict in their duty to freedom. The ideology this Nation was founded on has been raped and abandoned by the very people it was designed to protect. With the clearest possible elucidation, this article is a testimony to the total failure of humanities greatest opportunity to remain free from tyranny. And all it took was the control of education.

TN Note: Technocracy envisions a cashless society so that nobody is every ‘left behind.’ Thus, it’s no wonder that the central banks of the world, as well as commercial and investment banks, are calling for cash to be removed.
In 2014, Cass Sunstein—one-time “regulatory czar” for the Obama administration—wrote an op-ed advocating for a cashless society, on the grounds that it would reduce street crime. His reasoning? A new study had found an apparent causal relationship between the implementation of the Electronic Benefit Transfer system for welfare benefits, and a drop in crime.
Under the new EBT system, welfare recipients could now use debit cards, rather than being forced to cash checks in their entirety—meaning there was less cash circulating in poor neighborhoods. And the less cash there was on the streets, the study’s authors concluded, the less crime there was.
Perhaps burglaries, larcenies, and assaults had gone down because there was simply less to readily steal. Perhaps, also, the debit cards deterred people from spending money on drugs and other black market goods. While nothing was really stopping them from withdrawing cash and then spending it illegally, the famous Sunsteinian Nudge was in effect—the very slightest friction in the environment pushed people away from committing crime.
The year after Sunstein’s op-ed was published, in a seemingly unrelated incident,a student at Columbia University was arrested and charged with five drug-related offenses, including possession with the intent to sell. Supposedly, his fellow students and customers had paid him through the Paypal-owned smartphone app Venmo.
Venmo makes every transaction public by default. The app features a social-network-like feed where you can see your friends sending each other varying sums of money, often accompanied with cute descriptions and emoji. The alleged dealer asked his customers to write a funny description for every transaction, and in doing so, turned his feed (and others’) into an open record of drug trafficking.
Nothing was really stopping the students from going to an ATM and withdrawing cash to use in the old-fashioned way. But that takes time and energy and meanwhile Venmo is sitting right in your pocket. The Ivy League’s best and brightest were Nudged into narcing on themselves.
In a cashless society, the cash has been converted into numbers, into signals, into electronic currents. In short: Information replaces cash.
Information is lightning-quick. It crosses cities, states, and national borders in the twinkle of an eye. It passes through many kinds of devices, flowing from phone to phone, and computer to computer, rather than being sealed away in those silent marble temples we used to call banks. Information never jangles uncomfortably in your pocket.
But wherever information gathers and flows, two predators follow closely behind it: censorship and surveillance. The case of digital money is no exception. Where money becomes a series of signals, it can be censored; where money becomes information, it will inform on you.
Once these scumbag Bankers have total control of all wealth in the world, which is exactly what this is all about, every person on earth will be at the mercy of Banking Regulations, and believe me, if they don’t want the people to own guns they won’t allow the transaction, if they don’t like what you say about them, you’re going to starve. If you have anything negative to say about government…………STARVE! If you get into a disagreement with your local banker, he will cut you off. They could care less about crime, because they make a fortune from it, but CONTROL is what they lust for! Do you not understand that ownership in the traditional sense is immaterial,
CONTROL is ABSOLUTE!

TN Note: The U.N. is a proxy for the global elite as represented by organizations like the Trilateral Commission. Anyone who says that the goal of Sustainable Development (aka Technocracy) isn’t the complete takeover of the planet’s resources simply isn’t paying attention. They want all resources on land and water to fall under global a commons designation, and once they get ahold a particular resource, you and I will never lay hands on it again.
The United Nations has launched a far-reaching initiative that could give U.N.-sponsored authorities sway over the biological resources of the high seas—all the waters that lie outside national territories and economic zones.
The potential shift in power involves multi-trillion-dollar issues, such as whether large areas—conceivably, as much as 30 percent– of the world’s international waters should be designated as no-go areas to protect biological diversity; whether and how to require elaborate “environmental impact assessments” for future ocean development projects; and how to divide up the economic benefits from the future development of “marine genetic resources.”
Eden Charles, a diplomat from Trinidad and Tobago who is serving as the chairman for a U.N. preparatory committee that began the discussions this week underlined to Fox News that the talks are at a “very, very preliminary stage.”
Overall, the hoped-for treaty will cover “two-thirds of the oceans, almost half the planet,” says Lisa Speer, a senior official of the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), which is in turn a lead member of a squadron of 33 environmentalist groups banded together as the High Seas Alliance to lobby for protectionist measures during the talks.

The rationale behind the discussions: easing the rising pressure on the world’s undersea biodiversity wrought by over-fishing, pollution, the drainage of nutrients and other substances from surrounding lands, disturbance of underwater seabeds, and fears of even greater threats from underwater industrial technology, including underwater exploration for hydrocarbons.
In U.N. terms, the discussions are proceeding at something like flank speed—that is, a lot slower than a melting iceberg bobbing in the north Atlantic. They began with the initial meeting on March 28 of the preparatory committee– “prep-com” in U.N.-speak–of nations to discuss preliminary ideas until Friday, April 8. Another two-week prep-com session will take place in August, and two more next year.
These are expected to result by the end of 2017 in draft language for a planned oceans treaty that could then be chewed over for another year or two in broader international sessions.
The agreement that ensues from those discussions, however, is seen by some involved in its hoped-for creation as the salt-water equivalent of the Paris Agreement on climate change, which will be formally signed at an April 22 ceremony in New York—a global, permanent and legally-binding deal for the management of Earth’s last frontier, which will spawn further layers of regulation in years to come.
“The climate negotiations showed the possibilities for us to come together,” Speer told Fox News.
Like the climate treaty, the intended oceans treaty envisages transfers of marine technology and investment to developing nations as part of the deal , along with some still far-from-specified portion of the wealth derived from marine biological discoveries, including genetic breakthroughs.
“One of the things we are looking at is how marine genetic resources will be conserved, sustainably used, and how the dividends will be shared,” says Speer.
One of the biggest backers of the preliminary talks is the Obama Administration. Even though the U.S. has never ratified the 1982 U.N. Law of the Sea Convention—the new talks are aimed at creating an “implementing agreement” under the Law of the Sea umbrella—the Administration is deeply involved in the negotiations, as are some of the world’s most powerful environmental organizations.
The U.S. also has a legal precedent for its involvement: its ratification in 1996 of another “implementing agreement” under the Law of the Sea Convention that orchestrated the activities of a variety of regional fisheries management organizations across international waters, allowed for international enforcement, and a variety of other measures.
Ocean bio-preservation is also one of the 17 nebulous Sustainable Development Goals endorsed by all the world’s governments, including the U.S. last September.

In 2001 The United States of America launched a war against Islamic terrorism in response to the September 11 terror attacks. To this day, many still claim that it was a conspiracy launched by our own government meant to rush in the supposed “New World Order;” which in all honesty, could hardly be called a conspiracy theory anymore. Looking at the events of the past thirteen years, since the inception of the war on terror, I would have to argue that the conspiracy had more to do with establishing Islamic superiority throughout the world than anything else.
Since that time, Muslims in America have made great progress in establishing themselves as one of the “protected,” oppressed minorities because of the war efforts overseas; and, they have all but taken over Britain. Being profiled as a potential terrorist became the new “N” word and the federal government bent over backwards to accommodate people who hide behind these privileges, while still maintaining their intent to harm Americans. More and more we witness American citizens being called the terrorists while the Obama Administration stacks the ranks with known members of The Muslim Brotherhood, and yet, out of a fear of being labeled “Islamophobic,” vast numbers of Americans, people who have a responsibility to maintain liberty in their nation, turn a blind eye to the danger this represents. After years of indoctrination into multiculturalism, moral relativity and socialist economics, Americans have lost the ability to be objective truth seekers. They fail to see that there are no “conservative Americans” committing acts of terrorism against them. The vast majority of terror attacks are committed by Muslims, and yet they engage in the “Ultimate Betrayal” by allowing the Democrats to call their fellow Americans terrorists.
While Muslims in America are playing the civil rights tactics with great success, our own government is arming radical Muslims overseas, in an effort to overthrow regimes that present an obstacle to the objectives of the Obama administration. By now I would hope that most people see that Obama is an extension of Bush and is working to carry out the same objectives. For instance, the real reasons for the Iraq war was the threat that Saddam Hussein would sell oil for Euro’s instead of the petrol dollar, while Gadhafi had plans to create a gold currency for the entire African continent. These two events would have had drastic effects on the global financial power structure, which I wrote in an article entitled “If this is true then our society is a lie,” is actually being controlled by Saudi Arabia. They are responsible for creating the illusion that the U.S. dollar is the worlds reserve currency, they created the petrol dollar. The petro dollar, as a reminder, is the only viable means for nations to purchase oil.
In Syria, it is becoming increasingly clear that the objective is ethnic cleansing as Muslims are slaughtering Christians, and anyone else who doesn’t go along with the radical Islamist’s agenda. This is where all Americans should be outraged; our government, as noted above, is providing arms to the rebels committing these atrocities! Americans are blinded to it because we have become inundated with propaganda which aims to label us as haters for questioning the motives of Muslims.
Here is where it gets real interesting. Many are aware by now that there is substantial evidence which clearly shows Benghazi was a gun running operation. According to Thomas Eddlem of The New American, the weaponry used in the Benghazi assault was also provided by the U.S. Government. This is all out treason committed by our “elected representatives” folks. Its time to engage the grey matter in your brain housing groups America. Our government is currently going to great lengths to classify patriotic dissenters as terrorists, while attempting to pass laws classifying any speech against Islam as hate speech. The White House is stacked with Muslim Brotherhood operatives, and our own government has been providing arms to the very terrorists they originally sent us over there to fight.
Based on the presented evidence, it is overwhelmingly clear that the September 11 attacks of 2001 were committed to carry out an objective. Since that time we have become numb to the progress that radical Islam has made in influencing our society. It is entirely possible that we have been conditioned to accept this out of a fear of being labeled “intolerant,” or racist. Muslims once claimed that an Islamic flag would fly over the White House one day, I would argue that if it ever did, it would be our own fault for allowing fear and a misguided sense of compassion to become our undoing. We allowed ourselves to become so distracted and divided by liars and people with alternative agendas that we didn’t know what to believe. All the while the real conspiracy has been advancing little by little. America is slowly becoming more “sharia compliant,” and sadly, little is being done to stop it.
