The War Of The Titans Finally Begins
What is truly surprising about this “Clash of the Titans” is that hardly anyone’s talking about it in the terms that reflects just how big it really is. Can it get any bigger than CIA vs. SENATE?
That’s like Muhammad Ali vs. Mike Tyson. It’s just not supposed to happen … and yet it is … in real time.
When this first battle is over between Feinstein et al. and her opponents at Langley, the battlefield will be littered with political carcasses of every stripe and bureaucrats of every color. This is, incidentally, only the first battle of what will become a very long and ugly war. When the greater war is finished, there will be no winners, only losers. Just as it should be.
What exactly is a rouge agency?
(definition according to Dictionary.com)
no longer obedient, belonging, or accepted and hence not controllable or answerable; deviating, renegade: a rogue cop; a rogue union local.
Documented history is replete with authoritative accounts of the CIA (aka The Company) going rogue whenever, wherever, however it wants to. Answering to know one — ever — it marches to the beat of its own drummer. Although we cannot know exactly who that drummer is, we can extrapolate its identity by simply viewing the damage and destructionThe Company has wrought across the planet. Their agenda ALWAYS gives itself away by asking one simple question — “Qui bono?”. Who is it that reaps the most substantial gains from the ‘execution’ of the ever-covert CIA agenda?
The CIA Always Hides – Conveniently – Behind National Security ‘Shield’
The one obvious reason why the CIA has always gotten away with “bloody murder” wherever it sets up shop is because of the ongoing ruse known as invoking “National Security”. Has there ever been a bigger scam pulled on the American people, year after year, decade after decade? The way this little game works is that The Company has always, and will always, invoke this sacrosanct excuse for doing anything it wants to do, anywhere, anytime, IN THE NAME OF NATIONAL SECURITY. After all, who would ever argue with something so untouchable and sacred as our national security?
So, there you have it. The CIA does what it wants to do, and doesn’t do what it doesn’t want to do — 24/7 — in the interest (usually contrived) of ‘national security’. Of course, they have a little help with all the preferential legislated process and procedure which has given them plenty of cover since their inception. Before we get into where they really came from, what cover?
The vast majority of CIA operations are black budgeted. Therefore, they virtually always operate under cover of budgetary darkness, with nary a lick of real financial scrutiny or genuine congressional oversight. In other words, you simply cannot “follow the money” because there are limited funds budgeted by congressional appropriations ($14.7 billion in 2013). Much of what is appropriated is allocated for all the obvious and non-clandestine administrative and operating costs like overhead for the CIA’s headquarters in Langley, Virginia. For all practical purposes, CIA black operations are virtually invisible.
When it comes to the multitude of black operations conducted by the CIA worldwide, they are also immune to public disclosure because everything associated with them is ultra-classified and top secret. Not only will the details of their work never be disclosed in our lifetimes, they will be kept secret for all future generations. These are the ground rules that the CIA set up at its very inception. Perhaps it’s because The Company is nothing but a newer incarnation of its predecessor known as the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) that they off on the wrong foot.
The OSS was the US wartime Intelligence agency created in June of 1942 during World War 2 and was the predecessor of the CIA. The OSS was publicly dissolved in 1945, except that it really wasn’t. Not only wasn’t it, but its next incarnation — the CIA — became the beneficiary of the German Secret Services, by offering safe refuge to high level administrators and agents, as well as a whole host of Nazi war criminals. Operation Paperclip was just one of the several initiatives undertaken by the USA to monopolize German (and Nazi) expertise, knowledge and experience in several areas related to their war endeavors.
“Operation Paperclip was the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) program used to recruit the scientists of Nazi Germany for employment by the United States in the aftermath of World War II. It was conducted by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA), and in the context of the burgeoning Cold War, one purpose of Operation Paperclip was to deny German scientific expertise and knowledge to the Soviet Union and the United Kingdom, as well as inhibiting post-war Germany from redeveloping its military research capabilities.” (Source — Wikipedia - Office of Strategic Services)
In so doing, various processes, procedures and protocols were borrowed when appropriate from the highly ‘respected’ Nazi war institutions. Overall, the MO by which the CIA would operate globally very closely resembles the secrecy and stealth by which the WWII Nazis became famous. Herein lies the root problem for the USA, as well as the world-at-large.
Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely
When any institution is empowered to carry out coup d’états at will, overthrow democratically-elected governments, trigger revolutions both bloodless and violent, and incite civil wars, they necessarily act with total impunity. The CIA has assassinated scores of world leaders who were presidents and prime ministers, political power brokers and financial elite, corporate CEOs and Chairmen of the Board.
The vast majority of these assassinations were conducted so far under the radar that the deaths were officially attributed to suicide, illness or accident, and get this, natural causes. There is no organization on Earth that has successfully suicided so many individuals who had not a suicidal bone in their bodies. To this very day the fictitiously written CIA press releases, news accounts and obituaries serve as the ‘definitive’ record of many of those cold-blooded murders cloaked with suicide.
Any institution, which is deputized to take out the powerful and influential, moneyed and famous, who pose a threat to the politically-correct agenda of TPTB, will eventually self destruct. The usual process of such self-destruction follows a time-honored pattern that flows from hubris. The accumulated institutional arrogance and hierarchal ignorance eventually sets up the organizational leadership to provoke an adversary more powerful, or well connected, that it is. Today we see the Senate pounding its chest like never before in the face of CIA spying on Congress, as an example.
Ultimately, such a confrontation was inevitable. Any agency that is so used to always getting its own way will never be successfully reined in. How can it be when “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely“. However, such a rogue agency will eventually cross all the red lines one too many times, as many see the CIA do around the world every single day. They’re constantly revealing themselves through their handiwork, so that it’s now next to impossible not to recognize where they’ve just been. Wherever there’s manufactured chaos and confusion, or unprovoked violence and mayhem in a strategic geopolitical location, the CIA ‘s fingerprints are usually all over the crime scene.
Both the CIA and NSA have shown themselves to be completely without conscience. Likewise, and more significantly, they have no inclination toward any degree of self-restraint. Like kids in a candy store, they’re incorrigible. Why should those with political agendas and axes to grind not see their plans through, when they know they can act with total impunity. No one can stop them. Very few even know about their countless plots and furtive schemes. And all of the high-level administrators and deep cover operatives who do have been indoctrinated that all is acceptable … and performed in the vital interest of national security.
Like the well-known upper levels within Freemasonry, those who populate leadership in the CIA are chosen because they show no tendency to ever leave the spook reservation. They also know that they can never leave, since it’s always a lifetime membership once you’re initiated. Unless, of course, one cares not about being suicided … or worse. At the end of the day, The Company rarely has to worry about someone turning in their resignation for these reasons. Even those who appear to leave are usually involved in a psyop of some kind for one side or the other*.
“Who ever has the biggest dog wins the fight.”
There’s an old saying in Florida politics that goes something like that. To a great extent, in mundane matters, it’s true. In the instant case of CIA vs. SENATE, it’s a little more complicated. However, as far as We the People are concerned, the more complicated the better, since a long and protracted war between them will eventually precipitate plenty of much needed revelation on both parties.
More importantly, to expose them both for the corrupt and dangerous institutions that each has become is the ideal outcome. In this way, as they again say in Florida, sunshine can be the best disinfectant. Sometimes, all that’s needed is a little sunlight to shine on that which is seriously infected, especially throughout institutions as sick as the CIA (and NSA).
In light of the most “shocking” and “outrageous” stories about the CIA spying on the most august Congressional body, one thing is certain: There are surely many more victims of CIA espionage than the Congress. Why not the Supreme Court? Or the General Accounting Office? How about the IRS and the Federal Reserve? Certainly the White House itself is not immune to CIA espionage, is it? Neither is the Justice Department nor the U.S. Patent Office.
Once this genie of highly consequential revelation is out of the bottle, it will be impossible to put back. Which will only accelerate and intensify the many battles and wars that are sure to come. This is the way that revolutions occur. Once a critical mass of individuals understands the depth and breath of criminal activity being committed in their name, and with their tax dollars, the rebellion will start in earnest. From this point on, it really is just a matter of ‘execution’ (as they like to say, in the CIA).
Since the seeds of its own destruction were sewn at the inauguration of the Central Intelligence Agency back in 1945, eventually those seeds would sprout into the karmic blowback that is now being witnessed. The very same strategies and tactics that the CIA has used around the world for decades will be used against it. Divide and conquer is just one of the many devices used with great effect in nation after nation, toppling governments around the world on a whim. Now it’s their turn to receive their just desserts.
CIA and NSA: Fric and Frac of US Security State
It should come as no surprise that this CIA-started conflagration is raging right after the NSA World Scandal. Both of these rogue agencies are expert and reliable at causing real outrage and mischief both at home and abroad. Even though the CIA is strictly prohibited by federal law from operating as such on American soil, it still manages to muck things up right here in their own back yard. They simply could not refuse the temptation to implement their agenda, just as they routinely do abroad (See the Ukraine, Venezuela, Syria, Libya, Iran, for their more recent unmitigated disasters).
The entire world has seen for many decades the abuse and misuse of intelligence agencies for the benefit of a few. Now that the light of day has revealed these two as the Fric and Frac that they really are, they both ought to be frogmarched out of DC, and perhaps off the planet. What else can be done with these serially criminal agencies with intractable and often odious agendas?
Ideally, it would be quite the development if they both turned on each other so that bully could duke it out with bully. Just as the CIA vs. SENATE fight is showing us in living color on the evening news. This particular fight, however, is unlikely to produce a new Heavyweight Champion of the World. The “War of the Titans” is rarely that short, and usually occurs on many different battlefields over the course of years if not decades.
There is another telling parable that, yes, originated in the great State of Florida that goes like this:
You can’t beat City Hall. Even when you think you’ve won, you really haven’t. Therefore, better to play it smart.
Wait for City Hall to take on the County. Or the States to go after the FED. Or Congress to mix it up with the CIA.
Playing the David can work quite well by carefully slinging the shot at each Goliath on the battlefield. If every Goliath is hit between the eyes, you may only knock them down. However, when they get back up, they are only facing other very angry Goliaths. Each one will be fighting mad, and will gladly do battle with any other Goliath still standing.
Then, David only needs to sit on the sidelines and watch all the Goliaths go after each other, just like Snowden and Assange are currently doing from their safe havens.
Eventually, the “CIA vs. SENATE” will evolve into an epic and unprecedented brawl involving many more parties than just the three branches of the US Government. Might as well pull up a seat, sit back and watch the fight.

It’s important to note that the CIA has run the extra-judicial drone assassination program from the beginning. This is what they do. They kill and murder people who have faced no court or trial or jury. Just because the CIA labels someone a terrorist, the American people are supposed to accept their verdict and death sentence. Their ‘convictions’ are neither legal nor moral, and they have done irreparable harm to the nation because of this unlawful and heinous behavior.
The killer drones accurately reflect the predominant and extremely dangerous type of thinking at the CIA. The Company is truly in the business of death and destruction, murder and mayhem. And they get away with it all day long, every day, with minimal scrutiny.
Perhaps it’s time for The Company to go bankrupt. Their purpose in the world seems to be incompatible with those of the great majority of US citizens who only desire peace and prosperity. Just as the world’s masses strive for a world without war, and a safe place to live, work and play.
 Edward Snowden has done a marvelous job at playing David as the following recent article demonstrates: Snowden Calls Feinstein Hypocrite on CIA Spying
 “Corrupt Senate” refers to its predictable behavior as outlined in the following exposé. Such a flagrant display of hypocrisy, disregard and betrayal of the American people by the Senate has become par for the political course.

The neo-fascist coup d'état that overthrew the democratically elected government of Ukraine has the President of the United States firmly on board. Obama's support for this illegitimate, unlawful transfer of power in Ukraine has reached schizophrenic heights as an Executive Order has proclaimed a "national emergency" in defense of the Molotov tossing, spiked bat-swinging Neo-Nazis of Kiev. As Secretary of State John Kerry threatens to escalate the East/West conflict in cryptic allusions, the world now awaits the possibility of World War. US warships, planes and troops continue to scurry toward the region.
What Obama has done is absurd. There is no more diplomatic way of stating it. His hypocrisy and support for clearly illegitimate and unelected Ukrainian leaders now threatens the freedom, and lives, of Americans who call out this insanity, such as yours truly in this very article.
Obama's official embrace of the ridiculous rivals his predecessors, Bush and Cheney. This is no coincidence. The architect of the Ukraine regime change plan was none other than Dick Cheney's former adviser and Obama's current Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland. The Project for a New American Century lurches forward like Frankenstein's monster.
I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, find that the actions and policies of persons – including persons who have asserted governmental authority in the Crimean region without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine – that undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets, constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.
The "Government of Ukraine" (nice use of CAPS) has just been installed via chaotic street battles and a mysterious sniper, apparently brought in by the neo-nazi Maidan leaders. The elected President of Ukraine has fled to Russia, leaving a power vacuum where Obama's so-called "Government of Ukraine" enjoys no actual democratic legitimacy. This government was simply not elected by anyone. Period. Full stop.
However, Victoria Nuland has copped to spending $5 Billion of U.S. taxpayer money to achieve this goal and to install this regime. The US State Department has been instrumental in deciding who would and who would not become Obama's current "Government of Ukraine." This flagrantly gratuitous fraud is backed up by Executive threats of property seizure and even escalation toward war.
Crimea, which has yet been unaffected by the brutal street violence of Kiev, has arranged a popular referendum – an actual vote of the people – to decide whether they want to remain a part of Victoria Nuland and Barack Obama's little neo-fascist experiment. The people of Crimea may choose independence or protection by Russia, but this is not to be permitted by Washington.
There will be a [U.S.] response of some kind to the [Crimean] referendum itself … If there is no sign [from Russia] of any capacity to respond to this issue … there will be a very serious series of steps on Monday. – John Kerry, 3.13.2014
So, buckle down, America. There's currently a "national emergency" that people in a tiny region half a world away may vote the wrong way, the way that Washington officially dislikes.
Crimea has always been a part of the Russian sphere of influence, as it has majority Russian ancestry. The Russians, predictably, want to keep their port on the Black Sea. NATO/Washington wants to take away this naval port. If you can imagine a game of Risk in play, this is simply a matter of moving a few military resources around on a map to embolden one and to strategically weaken the other.
Add to that Chevron's holdings in Ukraine, with a nice profitable lease to frack the hell out of the country and extract natural gas for the next 50 years, and then we have a very obvious, tired old story of resource wars and strategic one-upsmanship. That and the IMF plan to indebt the people of Ukraine for many more billions in loans and impose "austerity" on their vital services. This is the "Economic Hitman" formula employed countless times around the world and already written about extensively. These are the forces in play, fun and games and billions to be extracted.
Plan Ukraine has absolutely nothing to do with democracy, with freedom, with vision, with any of the lofty rhetorical snake shit that readily squirts out of American television sets.
Will Ukraine look a lot like Syria in six months?
These neo-con warmongers, like John McCain and Victoria Nuland, had a lot of good chuckles empowering Al Qaeda in Syria in broad daylight, their junior partner Saudi Arabia doing most of the covert dirty work. Civilians on the ground are at the most risk, but Crimea so far appears to be relatively secure. That would be Russia's doing.
Neo-con men like Barack, in addition to staggering hypocrisy, can be quite petulant and vindictive in their policymaking. Here's the meat of his latest threat against the people of the world, including the reader:
…any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State:
(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following:
(A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine;
That designation would include Nuland, McCain, Kerry and Obama himself if anyone was keeping track. But Caesar's diktats are subject to Caesar's interpretation. Caesar's laws are to be applied in the manner Caesar prefers. Law is reduced to whim now, and it doesn't really have to make sense; does it?

When one studies history, all events seem to revolve around the applications and degenerations of war. Great feats of human understanding, realization and enlightenment barely register in the mental footnotes of the average person. War is what we remember, idealize and aggrandize, which is why war is the tool most often exploited by oligarchy to distract the masses while it centralizes power.
With the exception of a few revolutions, most wars are instigated and controlled by financial elites, manipulating governments on both sides of the game to produce a preconceived result. The rise of National Socialism in Germany, for instance, was largely funded by corporate entities based in the U.S., including Rockefeller giant Standard Oil, JPMorgan and even IBM, which built the collating machines specifically used to organize Nazi extermination camps, the same machines IBM representatives serviced on site at places like Auschwitz. As a public figure, Adolf Hitler was considered a joke by most people in German society, until, of course, the Nazi Party received incredible levels of corporate investment. This aid was most evident in what came to be known as the Keppler Fund created through the Keppler Circle, a group of interests with contacts largely based in the U.S.
George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, used his position as director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation to launder money for the Third Reich throughout the war. After being exposed and charged for trading with the enemy, the case against Bush magically disappeared in a puff of smoke, and the Bush family went on to become one of the most powerful political forces in America.
Without the aid of international conglomerates and banks, the Third Reich would have never risen to power.
The rise of communism in Russia through the Bolshevik Revolution was no different. As outlined in Professor Antony Sutton’s book Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution with vast detail and irrefutable supporting evidence, it was globalist financiers that created the social petri dish in which the communist takeover flourished. The same financiers that aided the Nazis…
The two sides, National Socialism and communism, were essentially identical despotic governmental structures conjured by the same group of elites. These two sides, these two fraudulent ideologies, were then pitted against each other in an engineered conflict that we now call World War II, resulting in an estimated 48 million casualties globally and the ultimate formation of the United Nations, a precursor to world government.
Every major international crisis for the past century or more has ended with an even greater consolidation of world power into the hands of the few, and this is no accident.
When I discuss the concept of the false left/right paradigm with people, especially those in the liberty movement, I often see a light turn on, a moment of awareness in their faces. Many of us understand the con game because we live it day to day. We see past the superficial rhetoric of Republican and Democratic party leadership and take note of their numerous similarities, including foreign policy, domestic defense policy and economic policy. The voting records of the major players in both parties are almost identical. One is hard-pressed to find much difference in ideology between Bush and Barack Obama, for example; or Obama and John McCain; or Obama and Mitt Romney, for that matter.
When I suggest, however, that similar false paradigms are used between two apparently opposed nations, the light fades, and people are left dumbstruck. Despite the fact that globalist financiers shoveled capital into the U.S., British, German and Soviet military complexes all at the same time during World War II, many Americans do not want to believe that such a thing could be happening today.
In response, I present the crisis in Ukraine versus the crisis in Syria…
Ukraine Versus Syria
It seems as though much of the public has already forgotten that at the end of 2013, the U.S. came within a razor’s edge of economic disaster — not to mention the possibility of World War III. The war drums in Washington were thundering for “intervention” in Syria and the overthrow of Bashar Assad. The only thing that saved us, I believe, were the tireless efforts of the independent media in exposing the darker motives behind the Syrian insurgency and the bloodlust of the Obama Administration. The problem is that when the elites lose one avenue toward war and distraction, they have a tendency to simply create another. Eventually, the public is so overwhelmed by multiple trigger points and political powder kegs that they lose track of reality. I often call this the “scattergun effect.”
The crisis in the Ukraine is almost a carbon copy of the civil war in Syria, culminating in what I believe to be the exact same intent.
Money from globalist centers has been flowing into the Ukrainian opposition since at least 2004, when the Carnegie Foundation was caught filtering funds to anti-Russian political candidate Viktor Yushchenko, as well as to the groups who supported him.
The Ukrainian Supreme Court called for a runoff due to massive voter fraud and the rise of the pro-Western Orange Revolution, determining the winner to be Yushchenko over none other than Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych went on to win the 2010 elections, and the revolution returned to oust him this year.
It has been discovered that the current revolution has also been receiving funds from NATO and U.S. interests, not just from the State Department, but also from billionaires like Pierre Omidyar, the chairman of eBay and the new boss of journalist Glen Greenwald, the same journalist who is now famous for being the first to expose National Security Agency documents obtained by Edward Snowden.
Much of the monetary support from such financiers was being funneled to men like Oleh Rybachuk, the right-hand man to Yanukovych during the Orange Revolution and a favorite of neoconservatives and the State Department in the U.S.
The International Monetary Fund has also jumped at the chance to throw money at the new Ukrainian regime, which would prevent default of the country and allow the opposition movement to focus their attentions on Russia.
The revolution in Syria was also primarily driven by Western funds and arms transferred through training grounds like Benghazi, Libya. There is much evidence to suggest that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was designed to possibly cover up the arming of Syrian rebels by the CIA, who had agents on the ground who still have not been allowed to testify in front of Congress.
After this conspiracy was exposed in the mainstream, globalist-controlled governments decided to openly supply money and weapons to the Syrian insurgency, instead of ending the subterfuge.
Some revolutions are quite real in their intent and motivations. But many either become co-opted by elites through financing, or they are created from thin air from the very beginning. Usually, the rebellions that are completely fabricated tend to lean toward extreme zealotry.
The Syrian insurgency is rife with, if not entirely dominated by, men associated with al-Qaida. Governments in the U.S. and Israel continue to support the insurgency despite their open affiliation with a group that is supposedly our greatest enemy. Syrian insurgents have been recorded committing numerous atrocities, including mass execution, the torture of civilians and even the cannibalism of human organs.
The revolution in Ukraine is run primarily by the Svoboda Party, a National Socialist (fascist) organization headed by Oleh Tyahnybok. Here is a photo of Tyahnybok giving a familiar salute:
So far, the opposition in Ukraine has been mostly careful in avoiding the same insane displays of random violence that plagued the Syrians’ public image. It is important to remember though that mainstream outlets like Reuters went far out of their way in attempts to humanize Syrian al-Qaida. Their methods were exposed only through the vigilance of the independent media. With the fascist Svoboda in power in the Ukraine, I believe it is only a matter of time before we see video reports of similar atrocities, giving Russia a perfect rationalization to use military force.
I am now thoroughly convinced that John McCain is a pasty ghoul of the highest order. He claims to be conservative yet supports almost every action of the Obama Administration. He is constantly defending anti-Constitutional actions by the Federal government, including the Enemy Belligerents Act, which was eventually melded into the National Defense Authorization Act; NSA surveillance of U.S. citizens; and even gun control.
And for some reason, the guy makes appearances like clockwork right before or during major overthrows of existing governments. McCain was in Libya during the coup against Moammar Gadhafi.
McCain showed up to essentially buy off the rebels in Tunisia.
McCain hung out with al-Qaida in Syria.
And, what a surprise, McCain met with the Ukrainian opposition movement just before the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovych. Here is a photo of McCain giving a speech to the opposition with none other than Neo-Nazi Oleh Tyahnybok standing over his left shoulder.
Why McCain? I have no idea. All I know is, if this guy shows up in your country, take cover.
Russia In The Middle
The great danger in Syria was not necessarily the chance of war with Assad. Rather, it was the chance that a war with Assad would expand into a larger conflagration with Iran and Russia. Russia’s only naval facility in the Mideast is on the coast of Tartus in Syria, and Russia has long-standing economic and political ties to Syria and Iran. Any physical action by the West in the region would have elicited a response from Vladimir Putin. The mainstream argument claims that the threat of Russian intervention scared off Obama, but I believe the only reason war actions were not executed by the White House and the globalists was because they didn’t have even minimal support from the general public. For any war, you need at least a moderate percentage of the population to back your play.
In Ukraine, we find the globalists creating tensions between the West and the East yet again. Russia’s most vital naval base sits in Crimea, an autonomous state tethered to the Ukrainian mainland. Currently, Russia has flooded Crimea with troops in response to the regime change in Ukraine. The new Ukrainian government (backed by NATO) has called this an “invasion” and an act of war, while Western warmongers like McCain and Lindsay Graham spread the propaganda meme that Russia made such a move only because Putin believes the Obama Administration to be “weak.”
Clearly, the idea here is to engineer either high tensions or eventual war between Russia and the United States. Syria failed to produce the desired outcome, so the Ukraine was tapped instead.
Energy Markets And The Dollar At Risk
In Syria, any U.S. led military action would have resulted in the immediate closing of the Straight of Hormuz by Iran, threatening to obstruct up to 30% of global petroleum shipments. Foreign resentment could have easily led to the abandonment of the U.S. dollar as the petro-currency. Both China and Russia implied the possibility of an economic response to American intervention, though they did not officially go into specifics. In all likelihood, the dollar's world reserve status would have been damaged irrevocably.
In the Ukraine, the chance of intervention has been countered with VERY specific threats from Russia, including a freeze on natural gas imports to the European Union through Gazprom, which supplies approximately 30% of the EU's fuel. In 2009, a temporary Ukranian pipeline closure led to widespread shortages across Europe. While some in the mainstream claim that Russia's influence over EU energy has "diminished" the fact is a loss of 30% of natural gas reserves for an extended period would inflate energy prices wildly and cripple the EU's economy.
Another specific reaction given by Russia is the dumping of U.S. treasury bonds. Russia's bond holdings may not seem like much leverage, except for the fact that China has now publicly backed Russian efforts in the Ukraine, just as they backed Russian opposition to U.S. activities in Syria. A dump of bonds by Russia would invariably be followed by a Chinese dump as well. In fact, China and Russia have been setting the stage for a global dollar decoupling since at least 2008. I have been warning for years that globalists and central bankers needed a "cover event", a distraction or scapegoat imposing enough to provide a veil of chaos in which they could then destroy the greenback as the world reserve and usher in a global currency system. The Ukraine crisis offers yet another opportunity for this plan to unfold.
The False Paradigm And The Globalist Chessboard
So far, I have outlined what appears to be a correspondence of conspiracy between Syria and the Ukraine and how each event has the continued potential to trigger regional conflict, dollar collapse, or world war. But is this conspiracy one-sided? Are only the West and NATO being manipulated by globalists to box in Russia and provoke a conflict? And what do globalists have to gain by sparking such disaster?
As with every other catastrophic fabricated war, the goal is the erasure of sovereign identity while consolidating economic, political and social power. It is not enough that global financiers dominate the banking industry and own most politicians; they want to transform the public psyche. They want US to ask THEM for global governance. This manufacture of consent is often achieved by pitting two controlled governments against each other and then, in the wake of the tragedy, calling for global unification. The argument is always presented that if we simply abandoned the concept of nation states and reform under a single world body, all war would “disappear.”
The question is whether Russia’s Putin is aware of the plan. Is he a part of it? Are we seeing repeat theater of a puppet Russia versus a puppet NATO like that witnessed during the Cold War?
What I do know is that Putin has, a number of times in the past, called for global control of the economy through the IMF and the institution of a new global currency using the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights (SDR).
Loans from the IMF are what saved Russia from debt default in the late 1990s. And Putin has recently called for consultations with the IMF concerning Crimea. Remember, this is the same IMF that is working to fund his opponents in Western Ukraine.
Bottom line, if you believe in national sovereignty and decentralization of power, Putin is NOT your buddy. Once again, we have the globalists injecting money into both sides of a conflict which could morph into something nightmarish. Putin wants global economic governance and consolidation under the IMF just as much as the supposedly "American-run" IMF wants consolidation.
Global governance of finance and money creation ultimately means global governance of everything else. Is a war being created through the false paradigm of East versus West in order to pave the road for global government? Are East/West tensions being exploited as a smokescreen for the final destruction of the dollar's world reserve status? It is hard to say if the Ukraine will be the final trigger; however, the evidence suggests that if a conflict occurs, regardless of who “wins” such a scenario, the IMF comes out on top.
Imagine you are playing a game of chess by yourself. Which side wins at the end of that game: black or white? The answer is it doesn’t matter. You always win when you control both sides.

Surveillance is coming at us from all angles. Chips, drones, TSA checkpoints, smart meters, back-doored electronic products, video cameras, spying home appliances; our phone calls and emails and keystrokes and product purchases are recorded.
The government and its allied corporations will know whatever they want to know about us.
What happens when all nations are blanketed from stem to stern with surveillance?
Public utilities, acting on government orders, will be able to allot electricity in amounts and at times it wishes to. This is leading to an overarching plan for energy distribution to the entire population.
Claiming shortages and limited options, governments will essentially be redistributing wealth, in the form of energy, under a collectivist model.
National health insurance plans (such as Obamacare) offer another clue. Such plans have no logistical chance of operating unless every citizen is assigned a medical ID package, which is a de facto identity card. In the medical arena, this means cradle-to-grave tracking.
Surveillance inevitably leads to: placing every individual under systems of control. It isn’t just “we’re watching you” or “we’re stamping out dissent.” It’s “we’re directing your participation in life.”
As a security analyst in the private sector once told me, “When you can see what every employee is doing, when you have it all at your fingertips, you naturally move on to thinking about how you can control those patterns and flows of movement and activity. It’s irresistible. You look at your employees as pieces on a board. The only question is, what game do you want to play with them?”
Every such apparatus is ruled, from the top, by the bankers Central Planners. When it’s an entire nation, upper-echelon technocrats revel in the idea of blueprinting, mapping, charting, and regulating the flows of all goods and services and people, “for the common good.”
Water, food, medicine, land use, transportation—they all become items of a networked system that chooses who gets what and when, and who can travel where, and under what conditions.
This is the wet dream of technocrats. They believe they are saving the world, while playing a fascinating game of multidimensional chess.
As new technologies are discovered and come on line, the planners decide how they will be utilized and for whose benefit.
In order to implement such a far-reaching objective, with minimal resistance from the global population, manufactured crises are unleashed which persuade the masses that the planet is under threat and needs “the wise ones” to rescue it and us.
We watch (and fight in) wars and more wars, each one exacerbated and even invented. We are presented with phony epidemics that are falsely promoted as scourges.
The only response, we are led to believe, is more humane control over the population.
On top of that, we are fed an unending stream of propaganda aimed at convincing us that “the great good for the greatest number” is the only humane and acceptable principle of existence. All prior systems of belief are outmoded. We know better now. We must be good and kind and generous to everyone at all times.
Under this quasi-religious banner, which has great emotional appeal, appears The Plan. Our leaders allocate and withhold on the basis of their greater knowledge. We comply. We willingly comply, because we are enlisted in a universal army of altruistic concern.
This is a classic bait and switch. We are taught to believe that service for the greater good is an unchallengeable goal and credo. And then, later, we find out it has been hijacked to institute more power over us, in every way.
The coordinated and networked surveillance of Earth and its people is fed into algorithms that spit out solutions. This much food will go here; that much water will go there; here there will be medical care; there medical care will be severely rationed. These people will be permitted to travel. Those people will be confined to their cities and towns.
Every essential of life—managed with on-off switches, and the consequences will play out.
An incredibly complex system of interlocking decisions will be hailed as messianic.
Surveillance; planning; control.
This is the vision.
It isn’t ours. It never was. But we are not consulted.
Instead we are made witness to watershed events: the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing; the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center; the 2001 assault on the Trade Center and the Pentagon. These ops paralleled the unleashing of better and more far-ranging methods of surveillance.
We are profiled down to the threads on our clothing and DNA in our cells. But what is our profile of the technocrats and their bosses?
They are divorced from human life. They live in a vacuum. They take pleasure from that vacuum.
In 1982, I interviewed Bill Perry, who had just left his job as PR chief at Lawrence Livermore Labs, where scientists design nuclear weapons. Perry had been given the kind of job PR people long for. But one day, when he passed the desk of a researcher and listened to his complaints about budget limitations, Perry said, “Listen, America already has the means to blow up the whole planet eight times. What more do you need?”
The researcher looked up at him with a genuinely puzzled expression. He said, “You don’t understand, Bill. This is a problem in physics.”
In the same detached sense, the technocrats who want to calculate and direct our future, move by move, minute by minute, see us as components of a complex and very interesting problem.
Yes, they indeed expect to exercise power and control. But they also live in an abstraction. They deal their answers from that realm. They exercise cool passion. They see, for example, that not every single twitch of thought of every person on earth is yet mapped, so they want to finish constructing the means by which they can chart those “missing elements.” They want to complete the formula.
They view their research as a wholly natural implication of the mathematics they can manipulate. They swim in technology and they want to extend its architecture. To abandon the program would be tantamount to denying their own intelligence. They climb the mountain because it is there.
They do perceive that one factor does not fit their algorithms: the free individual. It’s the wild card. Therefore, they are compelled to analyze freedom and break it down into DNA functions and brain processes. They assume, because they must, that the free individual is an illusory idea that flows from some older configuration of synaptic transmission, at a time in our evolution when we needed it. But now, they suppose, the engineering of human activity and thought has superseded such quaint notions. Now we all can be tracked, traced, and studied on a different and wider scale. Now we can be seen for what we really are: a hive.
Therefore, we must be instructed, within tight limits, about our various functions.
Today’s technocrats flourish with great optimism as they design the future world and its single society. If they run out of pieces of their puzzle to study, they’ll try to track the motion of every atom and electron and quark in the universe. They’ll delight in it.
Knowing all this, we know the terms of the war we are in.
The Central Planners have an equation: “free=uncontrolled=dangerous.”
By the gross terms of that equation, they lump us in with thugs and murderers and terrorists. They even see the normal functioning of the brain as a threat, as an intrinsically defective process, and they have long since decided that organ must be corrected with drugs.
We, on the other hand, must assert, in every way possible, that freedom is real and inviolable, and we must back that up with our actions.

The ATF-FBI debacles at Waco, Texas and Ruby Ridge, Idaho, in the 1990s remained isolated incidents because those attacked were fringe elements of society, assaulted in isolated areas. The Branch Davidians were an oddball religious cult, while the Weaver family were isolationist white separatists. The federal government was able to get away with the casualties they inflicted upon these people in these locations because these people were “different.”
That isn’t the dynamic in play in Connecticut.

Connecticut: The Coming Storm
Posted by Mike McDaniel
Friday, June 27th, 2014, 0-dark-thiry: The politicians have made their decision. By a twist of fate–your file simply happened to be on the top of the stack for no particular reason–you’ll be the first example. A state police SWAT team pull to the curb in front of your home, leap from their van and rush to your front door. Two black-clad men pull back a ram and swing it toward your front door, aiming just above the knob, while the rest of the team waits anxiously, their automatic weapons charged and off safe. Two hope they’ll get the opportunity to shoot. At least one wants to manufacture the opportunity.
You’ve made two major mistakes; they will cost your life and destroy your family: you live in a blue state where the governor and legislature have no respect for the Constitution and the lives and liberty of citizens, and you were foolish enough to obey the law.
Starting awake from a sound sleep by the explosion of your door being smashed open and the heavy stomping of booted feet, you stumble down the stairs and into the hallway. As you turn toward the sounds, you’re blinded by multiple bright lights and hear many people screaming at you, but their words are unintelligible. You raise your hands to shield your eyes, but you have your cell phone in your right hand. As soon as it comes into view, you’re overwhelmed by a tidal wave of explosive sounds and feel the first bullets rip into your body. There are stars, so many stars, winking and suddenly, everything goes silent and black and your last conscious thought is a feeling of falling.
The SWAT team, surprised when you suddenly appeared only five feet from them, screamed conflicting commands at you. When you raised your hands and one of them saw something dark in your right hand, he jerked back the trigger of his MP5 submachine gun and didn’t let go until the weapon was empty. Seeing him fire, four more did the same. Of the 137 rounds five of the team initially fired, only 18 actually hit you, but it was enough. The rest shredded your home from floor to ceiling and wall to wall. Six nearby homes were hit, as were four cars. As you lay dying, your heart beating ever more slowly and weakly, you were spared the horror of your wife’s death.
As she descended the stairs, she saw you hit, blood spurting everywhere, falling to the floor, she screamed loud and long and ran down the steps. When she suddenly leapt into the hallway from the staircase, the nearest officer, who had been staring in shock at your bleeding body, and most of all, at the cell phone near your right hand, was startled. One of only two who had not completely emptied his magazine, he emptied it into her. The rest tried, but with one other exception, their guns were empty, and they frantically and impotently jerked their triggers. The other exception managed to fire the remaining six rounds in his weapon. Of the final 13 rounds fired, eleven hit your wife, five in the chest, three in the head. She was dead before her body fell onto yours, the sickening thump of her head on the hardwood floor echoing in the sudden silence and roiling gun smoke.
That was when they heard screaming upstairs, and gathering their courage and slamming fresh magazines into their guns, rushed upstairs, breaking into your 7-year old daughter’s bedroom, to find her lying in a widening pool of blood on her tiny bed. One of the officers tripped over his own feet as he was charging into the house and triggered nearly a full magazine through the ceiling–into her bedroom and through her bed. One of his fellow officers caught three rounds on his bullet resistant vest, but that will be covered up for years. Your daughter will survive. She’ll be in a medically induced coma for two weeks, and when she awakens, she’ll be informed she’s an orphan, a paraplegic orphan with a single lung.
An investigation of the State Police SWAT team by the State Police done within a month of the murders will find the State Police blameless, and will proclaim them heroic paragons of SWAT virtue.
Your sister’s family gladly takes your daughter in, and after two years, years in which the State Attorney General, the Governor, many politicians and the news media depict you, your wife, and even your daughter as murderous domestic terrorists, a jury finally awards your daughter 30 million dollars. She’ll need every penny to support her the remainder of her shortened life. Unfortunately, a judge sympathetic to the state reduces the award to seven million dollars. The AG, Governor and his advisors, angry and vindictive, get authorization from a corrupt and cooperative judge to steal your daughter from your sister’s family and put her in a group foster home run by people who do it for the substantial money the state pays. The state also seizes the 7 million dollars for reimbursement for taking care of your daughter. The Speaker of the State House of Representatives pronounces it a just and fitting end for a family of domestic terrorists and swears to bring justice to all domestic terrorists.
Why were the police there? You tried to obey the law and register an AR-15 you bought. Unfortunately, you missed the deadline by two days, so the state knew you had the rifle and four magazines. What they didn’t know was that you bought the gun as a birthday present for your adult son who lives in Montana. The gun and magazines were in Montana only a week after you bought it. The state police attacked your home because they thought you had an “assault weapon” and “high capacity magazines,” all of which had been in Montana for months. They were scared to death of anyone with an “assault weapon,” so they sent a SWAT team.
Documents eventually made public during the civil suit will reveal that the state police made no attempt to verify that you still owned the weapon. They will reveal that a corrupt and cooperative judge–guess who?–signed hundreds of blank search warrants. They will also reveal that only 31% of local police departments and sheriff’s offices cooperated with the State Police; 69% refused to violate the Constitution. Not that any of that means anything to you. You screwed up and you’re dead. Your daughter will come to wish she had died that night as well.
Far-out fiction? The decision about which I spoke is being made in Connecticut as you read this article. Connecticut’s most recent gun restrictions signed into law by Governor Dan Malloy (D) include the requirement that anyone with magazines of greater than 10 round capacity must register them, and all “assault weapons,” with the state no later than January 1, 2014. Under many circumstances, violation of these laws is a felony.
As Bob Owens at Bearing Arms reports, most Connecticut residents disobeyed their legislative betters:
Only 50,000 firearms and 38,000 magazines were registered. Perhaps another 350,000 firearms belong to those who refused to register their arms. Nearly 2 million magazines are thought to remain unregistered.
These unregistered firearms and magazines are thought to belong to 80,000-100,000 gun owners who view the law as a blatantly unconstitutional infringement upon the very spirit of the Second Amendment, and a prelude to confiscation.
But what about people who did their best to obey the law? Suckers!
Those most obviously in danger of being arrested at this time are 106 rifle owners and and 108 magazine owners who tried to register their arms, too late. The government knows exactly who they are through their botched registrations, and sent them letters giving them options on how to surrender their arms and magazines.
But the police wouldn’t do that! Yes they would, at least enough of them to fire a second shot heard around the world. Let’s briefly examine what the police are sworn to do and how they think.
All police officers swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and to enforce the laws of their jurisdiction. They are members of the executive branch of government, and like the President or the Governors of the several states, are responsible for seeing that the laws are faithfully enforced. There are always two potentially exclusive principals at play in law enforcement: officers are expected to fairly and uniformly enforce the law, yet may lawfully refuse illegal orders and may refuse to enforce unconstitutional laws.
Practically, this rarely becomes an imminent conflict. Officers are given a great deal of discretion, and usually don’t enforce ridiculous, unconstitutional laws. Almost always, no one says a word about it. This is so because thoughtful, professional officers know that they are the pointy end of the spear. They know that the only reason our system works–and they survive–is because most people respect the law and are willing to obey it most of the time. Were that not true, police officers wouldn’t last a day. The police need the respect and willing cooperation of the public, and smart cops understand this.
Legislators, on the other hand, often care about nothing but seizing and maintaining power. Too many come to see themselves not as public servants hired temporarily to do the people’s business, but as the intellectual and moral superiors of the people, divinely chosen–by themselves; they recognize no higher power–to tell the people what to think, what to say, what to own and how to behave. They do not react well to the people thinking for themselves or refusing to obey. They forget–if they ever knew–that no rational legislator passes a law they know will not be obeyed, because when they do, and when people ignore them, a difficult choice is forced upon them. Take it and back down from a law they should never have written in the first place, or attack and show those peasants who’s boss. Punish them for daring to challenge their betters.
And who are the enforcers for the elite legislative class? The police.
Police officers must always consider three factors in their law enforcement decisions:
(1) Maintaining the rule of law. They do this by upholding the Constitution, fairly enforcing the laws that actually have to do with public safety while honoring the rights of all.
(2) Upholding the social contract. Police officers are given their powers by the people to deal with truly dangerous and harmful people and situations. People are willing to respect and obey the police as long as they do not breach the social contract by becoming not even-handed enforcers of laws that actually protect the public and make civilized society possible, but partisan enforcers for a lawless government.
(3) Doing what is reasonably necessary to do their jobs honestly and honorably.
Smart police supervisors and executives also know they should never give an order that will not be obeyed. Even so, will the police violate the Constitution, break the social contract, act dishonestly and dishonorably in doing their jobs? Many will. Refusal might mean the loss of career and pension, discipline, even prosecution. Some buy into the idea that they are the masters of the people, not their servants. Others will go along to get along. Some will honestly, but wrongfully, believe their duty is to follow orders regardless. But enough will do it.
The decision facing Connecticut legislators, the Attorney General and the Governor is stark: do they back down, refuse to actively pursue gun owners made instant felons by their unconstitutional laws, or do they suppress the peasants, perhaps even kill a few to make the point? That would never happen? Consider the Jose Guerena case, and the case of Andrew Lee Scott. Consider this from The Examiner:
A journalist in Connecticut reports that the highly restrictive and punitive gun control laws the state passed last year carry an ominous threat for citizens.
Those who missed the deadline to register their ‘assault weapons’ and high capacity magazines, which have been outlawed, will be treated as criminals although they may have attempted to obey the law but just missed the deadline.
Ed Jacovino of The Journal Inquirer further stated that Michael P, Lawler, a top aide to Gov. Dannel Malloy, contends that the state will punish those who missed the registration deadline whether they intended to or not.
According to Jacovino: ‘And while the state won’t immediately prosecute those who missed the deadline, it isn’t ignoring that information, either. The rifle and magazine declarations will be included in information given to police responding to a certain address. ‘This would be a factor in deciding how to respond to different situations,’ Lawlor says.’
Read that statement closely. Lawlor is saying that if a citizen calls the police to report a crime in progress, officers will be able to see whether or not the person reporting the crime has registered their assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and will approach the emergency call accordingly.
Honest officers trying to do their jobs honorably would carefully consider the three aforementioned factors. They would realize that these laws are clearly unconstitutional and will, sooner rather than later, be ruled so. They would understand that pursuing honest citizens who refuse to obey an unconstitutional law is a gross and unforgivable violation of the social contract, and such violations will cause breaches that will never be healed. Trust lost is never regained. Particularly, arresting–even killing, and some will die–people who actually tried to obey even an unconstitutional law but missed a deadline by a day or two is particularly dishonorable, even evil. To do their jobs honestly and honorably, they would quietly refuse to enforce those laws. Their supervisors and administrators, usually understanding of the three factors, would say nothing and do nothing.
Because the mere possession of magazines and AR-15-like weapons is not a crime if they are registered, police officers have no probable cause to investigate people for mere possession of such things. How can any officer, by merely looking, tell if a magazine holds 10 or 11 rounds? How can they tell if a magazine or a rifle have been registered? To be forced to tear apart magazines and to examine and investigate every rifle they see exceeds an officer’s powers and reduces them to corrupt, thuggish operatives of a police state demanding to see anyone’s papers at whim. Were this lawful, were this truly a significant law enforcement priority, why not simply station State Troopers at every shooting range as a gatekeeper? Of course, actual criminals tend not to frequent shooting ranges, but one has to have priorities.
If in the course of their normal duties they find themselves in a situation where they have genuine–not manufactured–probable cause to investigate further, they might need to enforce those particular laws, particularly if they’re dealing with real criminals rather than honest citizens criminalized by a corrupt legislature, but other than that, professionals would leave it alone. There are far more pressing issues that the public will support and recognize as clearly upholding the social contract.
And this will work–it does every day–if the police are left to their own devices. But as the Examiner noted, that may not be the case. This is an issue about which the police are very much aware, and honest officers worried. Recently, a woman whose husband received a threatening letter called the State Police and spoke with Lt. J. Paul Vance, who is apparently the head of public information for the State Police. Take this link to hear her recording of their conversation.
Lt. J. Paul Vance
While the woman is somewhat naïve regarding these issues, she is asking valid questions, particularly, if ordered to go to the homes of honest citizens and seize their firearms and accessories, will the State Police do it? Will they put themselves and the citizens they serve in deadly danger to enforce unconstitutional laws? Will they put honest citizens in situations where officers will feel compelled to kill them?
As the call goes on, Lt. Vance becomes upset and defensive, very reluctant to admit that the police are even considering such things, saying, among other things:
“I don’t want to talk about the Constitution at all–at all.”
“It sounds like you’re anti-American and anti-law.”
“I’m the master.”
He repeatedly tells her to speak with her attorney and says he would never come to her home, because it’s not his job (of course not; he’s an administrator). She corrects him, noting that lower ranking officers would do it, but he wants to avoid admitting that, and pretends that the police are automatons with no control over which laws to enforce. He also pretends not to understand that police officers coming to the homes of the law abiding to seize their weapons are in any unusual danger, nor will he admit that their actions would put citizens in danger. He knows better; any competent police officer knows better.
Anyone listening to Lt. Vance should come away with the understanding that the State Police certainly will send SWAT teams to the homes of citizens, and will, if they deem it necessary, kill them over the number of rounds their magazines are capable of holding and the appearance of their rifles. They will kill people to please blood-thirsty politicians.
Some local agencies–particularly sheriff’s departments, because sheriffs are elected–will refuse to participate, but many will. Police officers on the coasts are different than those in flyover country. They are generally more anti-gun. The State Police absolutely will, and few, if any, will have any qualms about it. In law enforcement circles, state police officers are known to be rigid and inflexible. Because they generally have no ties to a particular community, many quickly develop an “us-against-them” mentality. Their training and rank structure and daily relationships also tend to condition them to think themselves superior to local officers, and to be much more militaristic than other law enforcement agencies.
Have no doubt. If Connecticut politicians decide to punish the peasants, the State Police SWAT teams will raid the homes of the innocent. People will die. The social contract will be irretrievably broken, and the police–and politicians–will be seen as, and treated as, the enemies of Americans. They will have earned it.
If Connecticut’s legislators have any common sense, any honor, any decency, they will, at the very least, leave this alone and let this ultimately be decided by the courts. If they’re actually smart, they’ll repeal these unconstitutional laws before lives are lost.
Any bets on which path they’ll take?
My fellow American’s, when these events elucidated above take place, it will be a turning point in America’s history unlike anything experienced in the past, and it will escalate from there into total chaos. People on both sides of this issue have drawn a line in the sand, and when a family like the one described is annihilated retribution is sure to come. Picture in your mind this scenario; it’s 2 am and three vans stop in front of the Sherriff’s house, the side doors slide open and three fifty caliber machine guns roar through three thousand rounds of ammo, nearly cutting the house in half, then speed away. The neighborhood is in a panic and the National Guard are called in to assist local law enforcement. Every house for five blocks is invaded the next day, families are terrorized, and the Governor declares a lock down on the city. Prudence would dictate that both sides of this issue would come together to work out a truce, but prudence was murdered that faithful night, and from then on we are once again in a civil war. Do not for one minute, think that we law abiding gun owners will surrender our weapons. It’s only safe to take our weapons when we are laying in the street dead, because we do not value life more than the freedom to protect ourselves and our family’s. Politician's beware, you are starting something that will bite you in the ass.

I am not talking about the clown puppets in Washington D.C. and their minions in the Federal Government, but the true Government of the United States, the Invisible Government that appoints presidents, buys senators and congressmen, controls the system of public education, owns most of the mainstream press, the Federal Banks, the IRS and all federal agencies such as the CIA, NSA, FEMA, DHS, TSA and the rest of the alphabet soup organizations created for the sole purpose of spying on, harassing, repressing and terrorizing the American people.
The Invisible Government of the United States is not a government of the people, by the people, for the people, but a government of the banksters, by the oil magnates, for the transnational corporations.
We the People cannot wait any longer. It is time to overthrow the Invisible Government of the U.S.
A New Declaration of Independence
When in the Course of Human Events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the Earth the separate and equal sovereignty to which the Laws of Nature entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. Cardinals among these are Life, Liberty, Property and the weapons to defend those rights.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it by any means necessary, and to institute a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience has shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evidences a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new safeguards for their future security.
Such has been the patient sufferance of the American people; and such is now the necessity that constrains them to alter their present System of Government. All civil venues of recourse to change the current state of things have been closed to the American people. So, it is time to overthrow the Invisible Government of the United States.
By slow, gradual infiltration, the Invisible Government of the United States has become a veritable imperium in imperio — a government within the government. A government that has never been elected by the votes of the American people. A government that is fully controlled by oil magnates, international bankers and CEOs of transnational corporations ensconced at the Council on Foreign Relations and its parasite organizations in the U.S. and abroad, such as the UN, the Trilateral Commission, the Skull & Bones “fraternity” of Yale University, the Bohemian Grove, the Bilderberg Group, the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and others.
Trough their puppets in the U.S. Government, the conspirators of the Invisible Government have been working hard to eliminate the sovereignty of the U.S. and the rest of the countries in this planet and fuse them into a world government under their control. They have opened the southern border to an invasion of illegal aliens and are taking steps to integrate the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a North American Union as a first step to fusing all countries in the hemisphere into an American Union. They encouraged transnational corporations to change well-paid jobs at home into low-paid, quasi-slave jobs abroad. They have destroyed America’s heavy industry. They have systematically poisoned the air we breath, the water we drink and the food we eat. They have turned government schools (also called “public schools”) into centers for brainwashing and political indoctrination. They have been sending our sons and daughters to remote parts of the planet to fight unnecessary wars that only benefit the spurious interests of global bankers and international corporations. They are gradually turning the American Republic into a communo-fascist totalitarian police state.
The history of the present Invisible Government is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Totalitarian Tyranny over the American people — a Totalitarian Tyranny they euphemistically call the New World Order.
But the New World Order is not new and will bring constant chaos rather than order — it is already bringing chaos. It is a return to the servitude of medieval times, where just two social classes existed: the masters living in opulence, comprising the 1% of the population, and the serfs, the 99%, living in the most abject economic and moral misery and with no rights whatsoever.
The Invisible Government has refused to Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. It is time for the American people to abolish this aberrant creation called the Invisible Government of the United States, try the criminals for their treasonous acts and send to prison the ones found guilty. It is time for the American people to restore the Constitution and elect new leaders who respect and protect it from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
How Can We Overthrow the Illegitimate Invisible Government of the United States?
For more than a century, the CFR conspirators have been waging a psychological war of attrition against the American people. The main type of weapon used in this PsyWar is the meme. Memes are powerful ideas that take control over your mind. While some of them are good, some of them are malignant.
The U.S. military has its bacteriological warfare labs, like the one in Fort Detrick, Maryland, fully devoted to the production of lethal viruses. In the same fashion, the conspirators have their psychological warfare labs, like the Tavistock Institute, the Stanford Research Institute, the RAND Corporation, the Hudson Institute and others, where they create mind viruses in the form of malignant memes.
Therefore, if memes act like viruses, and the two main ways to avoid being contaminated by viruses are immunization and isolation, these prophylactic measures could be applied to memes as well. The best vaccination against malignant memes is to read, watch and listen critically. If you feel yourself agreeing hundred percent with everything a talk radio host, journalist or author says or writes, that is a sure symptom that you have been contaminated by a mind virus.
The other proven and effective way to avoid contagion is isolation. Viruses are usually transmitted by carriers called vectors. The main vectors for the transmission of the malignant memes created in the conspirators’ think tanks are schools —particularly government schools, the ones disingenuously called “public schools—, churches, political parties and the mainstream media.
Like ninja warriors, the main weapon used by the conspirators has been their invisibility. Therefore, in order to win this battle of the mind we need to become shadow warriors ourselves by becoming invisible to our enemies. Given the ability of the conspirators to infiltrate large organizations, the best defensive tactic is to create a multitude of small cells they cannot penetrate.
This type of small cell already exists: it is called your family, and its headquarters is your home. This is the only organization the conspirators cannot infiltrate. They know it, and this explains their efforts to destroy the family as a social unit.
In the case of education, the only sure way to avoid contagion is by not sending your children to government schools. Given the fact, however, that even private schools can be, and actually most of them are, contaminated, the only true solution is home schooling. But even the most drastic measure, no schooling at all, is much better that sending your children to public schools.
In relation to churches, if you discover that your pastor or priest has become an agent for big government disinformation, stop going to church and worship at home. Even better, create a small church at home and invite a few friends and neighbors to join you by attending your religious services.
Finally, you must be aware that the two main political parties have been infiltrated and currently are under the full control of the CFR conspirators. Creating a new party or organization would not help, because eventually the conspirators would manage to infiltrate it the way they infiltrated the Tea Party.
Even the best and well-intentioned candidates running for the Republican or Democratic Party are not good, because, if elected, they will be neutralized by the party’s machinery or co-opted by the conspirators. Moreover, by giving your vote to a Republican or Democratic candidate you are helping to legitimize a corrupt, illegitimate organization. Consequently, the best solution is to create an organization they can’t penetrate. It is called the “no party at all.” Become an independent, and give your vote only to independent candidates. If you cant’ find any candidate that can deserve your vote, run for office yourself.
The best way to fight a mind war is by refusing to let the enemy’s memes get control of your mind. How one can do that? As I have shown above, actually it is very simple and anybody can do it. The only requirement is the will to live as free men.
We are running out of time. We must overthrow the invisible government right away or be prepared to become the obedient serfs of the New World Order.
The ball is now in our court. Either we hit it back and refuse to become the conspirators’ serfs, or lower our heads and accept the yoke, or perhaps our death.
The mad CFR sociopaths in the Invisible Government are finally seeing their most cherished dream coming closer to become a reality: a big war with Russia.Unfortunately, we, not they, are the ones who most likely will pay for their madness.
On the other hand, perhaps we deserve it, for having allowed this nasty bunch of globalist anti-American traitors steal our government and our freedoms. Ultimately, people have the governments they deserve.

On one level, the struggle over the Ukraine is a deadly US/EU/Russian game of territory, involving governments, intelligence agencies, corporations, and banks.
But at a higher level, as usual, sit the elite Globalist players. And their motives are different. They see every conflict as an opportunity to negotiate the aftermath.
And that negotiation produces a codified structure of cooperation between the enemies that is larger than the previous structure.
For example, there were banks and corporations (Standard Oil, ITT, IBM, etc.) who were aiding both sides in WW2. And in the aftermath, a much larger market for goods (Europe-US) was created.
The US government, in its European rebuilding efforts, made sure of that.
Post WW2, Europe itself started on the road toward creating the current European Union, which is a vast bureaucracy that sits over the entire continent.
This is the Globalist principle: instigate conflicts, in order to build larger cooperative structures in the aftermath. And control those cooperative structures.
That way, you put more people, land, resources, and labor under the umbrella.
There is only one exception. If either of the conflicting parties, in the aftermath, refuses to build those cooperative bridges, the Globalist scheme doesn’t work.
So, vis-a-vis the Ukraine conflict, if Russia or the US, in the aftermath, says no to building new cooperative structures (either out in the open, or behind closed doors), that “defector” is now a Globalist target for further chaos and destabilization.
Until it relents and joins the Club.
Above the saber rattling and angry accusations, and characterizations of “a new Cold War,” Ukraine is a pawn in the Globalist game of bringing Russian and US power players into closer accord—kicking and screaming, if necessary.
In accord, but not in a good way. In a Globalist way.
Because the Globalist agenda is a planet of One Nation, where all borders are ultimately erased, and the ruling class of money and corporate power and political torque is enthroned.
This program is neither Left nor Right. It hides behind exacerbated conflict between Left and Right.
It engenders a reality in which Left vs. Right appears to be the only political game in town.
But it isn’t the only game.
You could call the Globalist agenda socialism, Communism, fascism, corporatism, liberal, conservative, and other names. And each one of those names would contain a kernel of truth. But in fact, Globalism is simply Control. From above. Period.
Yes, there must be certain issues on which the Left and Right disagree. There must be differences. And these issues must be hot. Hot enough to rally supporters who scream at each other across the barricades.
Because that is the kind of distraction Globalism needs to do its methodical work in secret.
If Ukraine follows the blueprint, at the end of the conflict, the US and Russia will be seething at each other. And then…a mediating figure will appear, perhaps from the Rockefeller camp.
And in a private meeting, he will say, “Boys, cool down. We have a plan. And in this plan, everybody wins. You’ll all go home with something. Look. Look at this. And this. And this.”
And then the new structure of cooperation will be larger than the previous structure.
And it will look good.
But the motive behind it will be: the taking of yet another step in the direction of welding together Planet Earth in one vast management system.
At the top of which sit the rulers.
As David Rockefeller wrote in his 2003 Memoirs:
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

As I travel the road of life, I find it very interesting how men who lived so long ago and experienced so much of life were able to see what was coming in the future, not to mention what they saw in their own day. Aristotle could not have hit the nail on the head any closer than this:
“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.”
I remember looking at a book once that was titled “What Men Have Learned from History.” As I opened the 100-page book, I found that the pages were all blank. The point was well made. Men do not learn from history. Unfortunately, society has proven this to be the case over and over again. In America today you can see the clear digression of society. What was once evil in our eyes some now call good. The high standards of virtue and morality that were once considered to be the foundation of our families are now laughed at and called “old fashioned” and “outdated.”
We now live in a nation where “tolerance” has become some sort of virtue, and “intolerance” for the things that go against God’s Word is called “hate.” The truth is God is love (1 John 4:8), and God gave His Law because He loves. Yet, America has now become so wise in her own eyes that its people have become fools (Romans 1:22).
Those who fought, bled, and died for our country to establish our Constitution, those who sacrificed to make us free were looked upon as heroes. Now, those who stick to the Constitution and fight to make sure it is adhered to are demonized, criticized by the state-run media and labeled “intolerant haters.”
We now live in a country where “evangelical Christians” are labeled by our own military as No. 1 on the list of terrorists; when if it were not for the “evangelical Christians” found in the “Black-Robed Regiment” who fought to give us this country, we would not have a nation to label anyone anything.
Then there are the do-nothings who give way to apathy. They say, “This is America, it will never happen here!” – as they look at the blank pages in the book of history once again and ignore all the signs of the times that clearly point out tyranny in our government, lawlessness and an attack against all that is good.
What has happened, America? Why have we given over to this change from the founding values of our great nation to the lawlessness we see today? The Bible clearly says in Proverbs 24:21, “… meddle not with them that are given to change.” So why are we changing?
America for the most part has cowered shamefully and refused to lawfully fight against evils.
It was Abraham Lincoln who said, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
Are we allowing our nation to be destroyed? Yes. Are we seeing judgment turned backwards? Yes. But the real question is, are YOU willing to stand up and do something about it? ________ (Your answer here). That remains to be seen.
It’s time for Americans to rise up, learn from the past, and say enough is enough.
Maybe we all could use a little lesson from those who are labeled “old and confused.”
One evening, a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.
The Grandma replied, "Well, let me think a minute. I was born before television, penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees and the pill. There was no radar, credit cards, laser beams or ballpoint pens.
Man had not invented panty hose, air conditioners, dishwashers or clothes dryers, and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air, and man hadn't yet walked on the moon.
Your grandfather and I got married first – and then lived together. Every family had a father and a mother. Until I was 25, I called every man older than I, 'Sir.' We were before gay rights, computer dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy. Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong, and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege. We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent. Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins. Draft dodgers were people who closed their front doors when the evening breeze started. Timesharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends – not purchasing condominiums.
We never heard of FM radios. And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey. If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan’ on it, it was junk. The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam. Pizza Hut, McDonalds, and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had five and 10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for five and 10 cents. Ice cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel. And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and two postcards. You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
In my day, ‘grass' was mowed, 'coke' was a cold drink, 'pot' was something your mother cooked in, and 'rock music' was your grandmother's lullaby. 'Aids' were helpers in the Principal's office, 'chip' meant a piece of wood, 'hardware' was found in a hardware store, and 'software' wasn't even a word. We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us 'old and confused' and say there is a generation gap.”

As I see it, if Tolerance and Apathy are the last stage, and I do believe it is, that means we are in big trouble; as in the ship’s sinking and we have no life boats. The International Investment Banking Cartel and their hundreds of thousands of elite minions have done a real number on us while we were sleeping. They stole our intellect, our courage, our will to propagate, and most all of the attributes needed to retain our freedom from tyrannical governance. I agree we’re in deep dodo, but, I cannot justify giving up till the last drop of blood is gone. It matters not if I lose all my friends because they are afraid to join the battle, and take offense when I ask them to participate. It matters not when I make grammatical blunders and expose my ignorance and it matters not when the NSA puts me on a watch list. I would be insulted if they did not. What does matter is, I stood up and fought back. It may cost me my life and or all I have accumulated in a lifetime of labor, but I cannot stand by and do nothing while my family and countrymen are being raped, murdered, imprisoned, bankrupted, and tortured. If you can justify not being involved in enraging by educating people, there are still things you could do, like do not participate in banking. But you must not sit back and do nothing. You have over three hundred million people depending on you, to fight for freedom. If you do nothing but pass this article link on to your contact list, you have done more than most so called American’s. If you are a Christian, there is nothing on earth or in Heaven that can steal your soul. To die in the act of fighting for God’s country is a joy unspeakable. Fear not!

Ladies and gentlemen WE HAVE A PROBLEM! Mr. Ewart reports that some so called American’s are complaining that he is too tough, strident and caustic in his articles, to which I say too damned bad. If his complainers had any guts they would wash their own mouth out with soap, and if they had any brains they would apologize to him, and forward his work to everyone they know. America needs a hundred thousand more authors who are even more tough, strident and caustic, to shame those who have no courage or common sense. They should be kissing his ass instead of complaining.
By Ron Ewart
Ladies and gentlemen. We have received some complaints recently that we are being too tough, strident and caustic in our articles. We submit that we aren't being tough enough. The fact is, if we are not stirring your blood, we aren't doing our job. If Americans are so timid and afraid of government that they don't want to hear the truth and from that truth, challenge the government, at any level, then America has absolutely no chance of saving itself ….. from itself. Fear paralyzes and renders the fearful impotent. Fear is the worst enslaver of all. If you fear the government, local, state, or federal, then we strongly suggest you don't read our articles. From our perspective the government, at all levels, has become arrogant, abusive and tyrannical and is fair game, especially to those of us with courage, a free mind and an indomitable spirit.
"The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool." -Stephen King, author
"Power, without honor or trust, is tyranny." -Ron Ewart, national author and speaker
The other night we watched the Crimson Tide movie again with Gene Hackman as Captain Ramsey and Denzel Washington as Executive Officer (XO) Hunter, commanding a nuclear submarine, the Alabama. The Alabama is sent on a mission to destroy a Russian naval and missile base that had been taken over by Russian rebels who were threatening to fire nuclear missiles at the U. S. if the rebel's demands weren't met by the Russian Government. The Alabama received an order from central command to fire their nuclear missiles at the Russian naval base, but while submerged and preparing to launch, it came under attack by a rogue Russian submarine. During the attack a message came in from central command but was cut off mid message. The Alabama ultimately destroyed the Russian submarine, but in the process of the fierce battle, it lost its radio and thus could not confirm the content of the second message.
The crux of the movie was about the dispute between Captain Ramsey and XO Hunter over the decision to fire nuclear missiles and the potential dire consequences, without knowing what was in the second message. The Captain was determined to fire, but the XO was determined to not fire until the 2nd message was received in full. In the end, the radio was fixed, the message came in and central command had rescinded the order to fire the Alabama's nuclear missiles. The Captain was wrong and the XO was proved right, thankfully.
But this time as we watched the movie, it was different somehow. We were suddenly struck by the parallels between the operation of a nuclear submarine and the operation of a Constitutional Republic. A nuclear submarine has virtually more destructive firepower than all the weapons fired in World War II. With 24 nuclear tipped missiles, each having at least 10 nuclear devices in them, a nuclear submarine can rain Hell fire down on targets that will totally obliterate them, along with tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousand lives. That is just one nuclear submarine. The United States has many nuclear submarines.
The United States of America, under the command of the President, controls the firepower of the combined army, navy, air force, marines and coast guard. No nation on earth has this much power in the hands of one man that can pull the "trigger" to save the nation, or pull the "trigger" on an insane whim. The captain of a nuclear submarine and the President of the United States have the same exact awesome responsibility and it is only different in the degree of how much firepower each can unleash. The captain answers to the President. But the President answers to …..?
In theory, a nuclear submarine operates to preserve Democracy, not to practice it. In contrast, and as designed, a Constitutional Republic operates to preserve a Democracy as well, but with a different set of less-rigid instructions. The nuclear submarine operates under the intransigent and fixed Rules of Navy Regulations and a chain of command from which there can be no deviation without serious consequences for the offender. A Constitutional Republic operates under the Supreme Law of the Land, the U. S. Constitution, and the laws that are passed in concert with the Supreme Law by a representative government. Consequences to any violators of the Supreme Law are left up to the people, that is if the people care to hold the violators to account.
On a nuclear submarine, or any other American Navy vessel, the captain is the supreme leader and the supreme law, subject to the Rules of Navy Regulations. In a nuclear submarine, "boys are trained to do a terrible and unthinkable thing, and if that ever occurs the only reassurance they will have that they are doing the right thing will derive from their unqualified belief in the unified chain of command", (from the movie) as delineated in the Rules of Navy Regulations. Each member of the boat's crew (a submarine is a boat, a surface vessel is a ship) must have an undying belief in the capability of the captain to fulfill the duties for which he is charged, in the hopes that in the performance of those duties he will not needlessly sacrifice the crew, or violate the Rules of Navy Regulations. That strong belief finds its foundation in the words immortalized by General Douglas McArthur ….. duty, honor, country.
Exhaustive training hones the captain and the crew to act as one, within the capabilities of the boat, in the fulfillment of the captain's duties. The human weaknesses associated with power and ambition and the uncontrolled emotions of irrationality, anger, or overt compassion can cloud the captain's ability to fulfill those duties and so the crew is taking that risk when sailing with any captain. Nevertheless, the crew can in no way affect, alter, or modify the captain's decisions, for that would be mutiny. The captain has absolute power on the boat and his words and deeds cannot be questioned, unless he is in violation of the Rules of Navy Regulations, which did occur in the Crimson Tide movie. The fact is, it is impossible to effectively prosecute a war by a committee, governed by Robert's Rules of Order, if the goal is to win the war.
So let's analyze the contrast between a submarine crew and the American citizen. Under the U. S. Constitution, the American citizen has considerably more latitude to alter or modify the government of a Constitutional Republic than a ship's crewmember has on any water-born vessel, where the captain has absolute power. In fact, in a Constitutional Republic, the power of the government is derived from the power of the governed, if we are to believe the inviolate words of those that founded this great nation.
In a Constitutional Republic, Americans are supposed to be taught to have trust in their government to do what is necessary and right under the rules of the Supreme Law of the Land, in the direct interest of the preservation of individual liberty and in the direct interest of the preservation of the sovereignty of the nation as a whole. Americans will only have that reassurance that the government is doing the right thing, if they have the unqualified belief and trust that the government will act to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution. Each American must have an undying belief in the capability of the government to fulfill the duties for which government has been charged, in the hopes that those duties will not needlessly sacrifice any one individual, or group of Americans, or will dismantle the foundation of freedom. That strong belief finds its foundation in the meaning of the word, "trust."
If the people do not trust their government to preserve individual liberty, be honest and forthright with the people and be true to their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, if they cannot trust their government to abide by the rule of law, then the entire system breaks down and we become a nation of the lawless under a lawless government. That condition is a recipe for the declaration of martial law and the path to fascism, or a dictatorship.
When the president of the United States, members of Congress, or any chief executive or members of a legislative, city, county, or state body, willfully lie to the American people to deceive them for political purposes, or ulterior motives, there can be no trust in government, or the rule of law and the system is on its way to breaking down. When law becomes so complex, complicated and undecipherable such that there is no way for the people to reasonably comply with the law, the system HAS broken down. In these trying times of a divided nation over two radically opposing ideologies, America finds itself at the merging of these two conditions. Today, government does lie on purpose for political purposes and ulterior motives to deceive the people, government has become a power unto itself where it does not respect the rule of law, it only respects its rule by fear and intimidation of the people, and finally, the laws have become so complex, complicated and undecipherable that no normal, reasonable and prudent person can comply with them, making virtually every American a lawbreaker in one form or another.
Lying by one person for whatever reason is deceit. Lying by government on purpose for ulterior motives or to increase its power over the masses is racketeering, corruption and quite possibly fascism. As Stephen King stated, "the trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool." If the people are so innocent, naive and uninformed, then they have no defense against a lying and corrupt government, nor do they have any redress against unconstitutional or complicated laws for which there is no way to comply.
But the fact is ladies and gentlemen, we cannot with these words change the mindset of a nation who does not care who leads them, or are collectively oblivious to their leader's existence, or the rules under which they lead. We cannot make people cognizant of reality or convince them that their "innocence and ignorance is the liar's (government) most useful tool." We cannot awaken a nation that does not want to be awakened, or a nation that is perfectly comfortable with its ignorance, apathy and mindless slumber.
You cannot by force or other means, convince an alcoholic to mend his ways if the alcoholic does not fervently want to mend his ways. And thus it stands that one person or a thousand voices cannot by force or other means, convince a nation that it lies on the path to ruin, until that nation as a whole gains the collective mindset that it wants to detour from that path. Even if ten thousand voices shouted freedom from the rooftops, as they are now doing all over America in print, on the Internet and on the air, urging the people to see the "light", it still will not be enough if a high percentage of the masses refuse to be awakened. As just one author with a limited audience, we might as well stand on the top of a mountain and blow into the east wind for all the impact we are having.
Whether a sea ship captain, or the president of the United States, the ability to govern effectively rests solely on the trust of the people over which each must command. Without that trust, without honor in the leaders and in the people, government breaks down and when government breaks down due to lack of trust and honor, so order must breakdown as well. This is what we see in Syria, the Ukraine, the Sudan and Venezuela, or any other country where trust in the government has evaporated. When trust and order break down, what takes its place is disorder, mayhem, brutality, carnage, disease and death. This is the not too distant future of America if it continues down the path it now treads.
The question remains, will that nation once conceived in liberty, gain the necessary collective mindset in time before all trust and honor are gone and disorder, mayhem, brutality, carnage, disease and death sets in, because the liars (government) used the people's innocence and ignorance to enslave them.
But then, as a humble writer with a limited audience, there is no way we can predict what the future holds. The outcome depends solely on whether enough Americans will awaken from their innocence, ignorance, apathy and mindless slumber ….. in time. All we can do is provide truthful information and sound the alarm and we are doing so with our weekly articles and on our two powerful websites HERE and HERE. But is anyone listening? If responses to our articles are any indication, it would appear not.

I am writing here of military personnel, and in particular, American military personnel. There is a good reason for this discourse, because it is a proven fact that people kill people for reasons they do not always understand or even care about, and if one is a God fearing person, or just a compassionate person, they should.
The German soldiers who were dressed in Polish uniforms, and instructed to kill their fellow Germans in the second world war, may or may not have, been given instructions to follow those orders because it was imperative to conquer Poland for the protection of the homeland, and to get the peoples support for Nation Building. Who Knows! I don’t pretend to know all there is to know about this event, and I’m using it to open the readers mind to something important in today’s political climate. Events like this do happen, (911 and the Bush administration) (Sandy Hook) (and many others) and I find it hard to swallow if we are going to claim we are compassionate human beings.
There are many so called compassionate Americans who would nuke Russia at the drop of hat, and there are also many so called compassionate Americans who would make a fortune if certain people would drop one on America so we could drop many on China, Russia, or various nations in the Middle East.
Getting rich at the expense of human lives being lost is not compassionate, and if the reader believes our government is always correct in their decisions to kill other people, then I fear for your soul, because it is surely not compassionate, or very smart, and you are close to being one of those soldiers who kill on command.
So what is a low ranking new soldier supposed to do? How about a seasoned soldier of high rank?
Let’s consider that the reason one is a soldier is to protect his country at all cost, which includes his/her life, and orders are orders, which must be followed without question. Then what? Is the chain of command so infallible they never make mistakes? I hardly think so, and we as compassionate human beings must be allowed to follow our conscience if we are to avoid being used by people with no conscience. And we cannot do that and remain ignorant. Don’t forget, our so called President is the Commander in Chief of our military, and the one who gave himself the power to kill us, in spite of having no available information on his past.
AND THAT, DEAR READER IS THE REAL REASON FOR THIS DISCOURSE.
Every human being must accept the responsibility to become informed on the methods being used by the powers that be. Otherwise we will be trapped into committing atrocities we will not be able to live with, like killing people for no good reason. Only self-defense or protection of family, and in some cases property, can justify killing a person.
Even if you just vote a tyrant into a position of power over other people, you are still responsible for their actions, because you could have researched his/her past to see what kind of person they were, (Except for OBUMA) or you could have demanded some kind of acceptable proof of their abilities and purpose.
We cannot go through life without accepting responsibility for our leaders, and if we continue doing so, we are headed for destruction. Look around, and see for yourself, our government has turned into a monster, hell bent on destroying our life with their control over every item we need for survival.
The privatization of all natural resources will subject us to an absolutely miserable life style, with no means of recourse. Is the pleasure of being uninformed worth living in a world of total subjection? Are we so ignorant we will accept tyranny, just so we can avoid a little reading? Do we want to be so desperate we will kill our neighbor for a loaf of bread? Do we give a tyrannical government our support just so we can have an excuse to sit on our ass and watch TV instead of learning how and what they are doing behind our backs; just because they say they represent America? Just by being alive we should have enough sense to see they are stealing our future, as well as our present way of life.
So, what are our options?
There are over 1,600 articles on my two sites alone http://anationbeguiled.com and http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com , plus the internet is running over with Patriot sites, for now! These articles have been chosen because they contribute to understanding what is going on in America and the world that contributes to the destruction of freedom and Constitutional Governance. And, the number one reason these things are happening is the appalling ignorance and lack of interest in our citizens. Folks, you simply cannot remain uninformed and free. It’s either knowledge and freedom, or ignorance and no freedom!
May I humbly suggest you begin a reading program of as many dissident authors as you can find, and empty your mind of all loyalty to any of the existing political parties in America. You cannot stand in the river and get dry. We must create an informed society on the methods the International Investment Banking Cartel is using to subjugate the entire planet we live and depend on. Stop voting and start learning why. Information is to your mind, like Viagra is to your?
If you want it to work right you have to give it some nourishment.
Every minute you watch television is like an open wound bleeding your life away.
It’s true that ignorant people cannot cure a big problem, and it’s also true that an informed society can cure any problem. The people who formed our government never intended it to be like it has become, and the way it failed is because the people refused to do their part. Your part Mr. and Mrs. America is to learn why adhering to a particular set of principles is the only way we can deal with an ever expanding group of politicians who act as if they can do anything with our country they find profitable. There are rules in every society; otherwise we would be an anarchic pot of hobo soup, willing to try anything that tickles our fancy. A Democracy simply means 51% of the people can demand how the 49% live, and if you are stupid enough to want that, let me be the first to hold and protect your money. Let me be the first to keep your wife warm on cold nights while you are away. The majority is a non elected tyrant!
Laws must be made in conformance with an existing set of principles, or we have no future security in anything. What ever sounds good at the moment is no substitute for intelligent problem solving. Or Nation Building, which by the way, we were not intended to be. The founders saw the advantage in having some diversity in governance and provided it by setting up the States as limited but free to adjust to particular circumstances, and the federal Government confined to only those explicit areas elucidated in the Constitution, and further confined by the Bill of Rights which is about to die on the vine of tyranny.
Getting back to the soldiers, and their commanders demanding absolute obedience regardless of sane treatment of the people. How will we deal with a soldier who has been instructed to kill us for some perceived wrong we may or may not have done. They are not supposed to be law-men anyway. That’s yet another protection we have lost, due to diversity in governance.
There is also the nationwide problem of local police officers becoming absolute brutes and getting away with it, to the point of publically bragging about their freedom to do what ever they liked, with no fear of retribution. As a matter of fact they can now get paid leave for brutalizing some citizen, and they openly confess it’s how they get extra paid time off. Go home with pay and behave for a week until this cools down, is how they are admonished. This is AMERICA???!
Are you aware that the old practice of extortion has arisen, and police officers are demanding money if you want to remain healthy and in business? If the thugs try it they are murdered with impunity, as it’s now the officers domain.
Any one who is still convinced that America is the land of the free and the home of the brave is mentally retarded. Go to http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com and read Mr. Whiteheads article, Free Speech RIP A Relic of the American Past!
How much will you take America, before you stand up and fight back?

Schooling plays a big role in programming the population, but the most potent and prevalent educational tools are the mass media. These are devised to reach a large audience via the broadcasting of information through natural means (spoken or written language, posters) or technological ones (radio, television, cinema, the Internet). With time, the elite has come to control all the important mass media outlets and are now able to dictate their contents.
The trick is easy. All the elite need to do is repeat the same simplistic lies in all the media and the population will believe them without a doubt. This is how lies acquire an irresistible aura of credibility. A specialist of mass brainwashing, L. Wolfe, explains it further:
“As Tavistock’s researchers showed, it was important that the victims of mass brainwashing not be aware that their environment was being controlled; there should thus be a vast number of sources for information, whose messages could be varied slightly, so as to mask the sense of external control.”
Wolfe specified that the contents had to be entertaining and leave the impression that the person always had the choice between various messages and sources. Therefore, the same repetitive information remains hidden behind different and appealing guises.
Around 1920, the Tavistock Institute became the center for the study of human behavior, mind control, propaganda, and social manipulation. Created in London, it spread overseas with the financial help of the Rockefeller Foundation. Its influence increased when it combined the study of anthropology, economy, organizations, politics, psychology, psychoanalysis, psychiatry, and sociology. For example, Tavistock organized social phenomena such as the hippie counterculture and the use of mind-altering drugs. Its primary objectives were and still remain the organization of cultural changes through the imposition of chaos and the occult manipulation of special groups. With a 2012 budget of around 6 billion USD, it is now made up of 10 institutions, 400 subsidiary companies, and 3,000 study groups. In secret, Tavistock guides powerful multinationals such as the Rand Corp. (media, politics, commerce, health, education, defense), the Mitre Corp. (defense, revenue, national security), the Stanford and Hudson Institutes,
After 90 years of research, Tavistock’s main discovery concerns child sexuality. This has a great influence on the development of personality. Early sex stimulation produces adults whose emotional development is similar to that of a neurotic child. Their second discovery is related to stress. Tavistock researchers found out that people under controlled stress became more infantile and gave up strongly held beliefs under group pressure to conform to popular opinion. That explains why the mass media insist so much on sex, violence, and fear-inducing messages. We are being turned into scared, submissive children who try to evade the stress of daily life through emotional masturbation – television, radio, CDs, DVDs, movies, and video games.
Westerners spend four plus hours a day, the equivalent of two months a year, or nine years in a lifetime, being hypnotized by a television screen without being conscious of the effects this activity has on them. They have nearly stopped interacting with friends, neighbors, community, and even family. Their free time is spent in imaginary relationships with fictitious characters on the screen.
A few US statistics will show us the extent of the phenomenon: 99 % of households own at least one TV; there are 2.24 TVs per family; the television remains open 7 hours a day; 66 % eat in front of their television sets. The addiction starts right after birth, since 30% of kids who are 0 to 1 year old and 47 % of the 5 to 8 year-olds have televisions in their rooms. A typical US child spends 3.5 minutes per week in meaningful conversation with a parent, but 1680 minutes per week in front of TV. Is this why television is called the “one-eyed babysitter”? By the time they are 65, most people have seen 2,000,000 TV ads. This phenomenon is becoming global.
The entire population of earth has become addicted to television. If one decides to quit the TV habit, they experience psychological withdrawal symptoms that can be as severe as those related to drug or alcohol abuse. There is a direct relationship between child obesity – which is severe for 11% of 6 to 17 year olds in US – and advertisements, since the most popular types of commercials are related to junk food. A study counted more than 200 junk food ads during four hours of cartoons on Saturday morning television in the US. When compared with radio listening, television is more impactful because there are pictures. The more there are to accompany a special news report, the more tangible it will seem and the lesser the chance of people questioning its accuracy. Media expert Hal Becker once said:
“I know the secret of making the average American believe anything I want him to. Just let me control television… You put something on the television and it becomes reality. If the world outside the TV set contradicts the images, people start trying to change the world to make it like the TV set images.”
How is it that the elite have been so successful in achieving full control of television programming? Through the assistance of government. Politicians vote and impose laws that favor large TV stations over smaller ones and make it difficult for independent ideas to reach the airwaves. Better yet, most countries have their own sanitized State television stations.
Mass Hypnosis and Mass Violence
Tavistock hastened to study the effects of television on human behavior as early as the 1940′s. Its researchers discovered that 30 seconds after one starts watching TV, the brain automatically begins to produce alpha waves, a modified state of consciousness. The viewer goes into a trance-like mode, a type of light hypnosis. All their attention becomes concentrated on the screen, while the rest of their environment is ignored. In this semi-conscious state, they become highly susceptible to the messages contained in the programs, especially the commercials, which are created especially for that purpose.
Television started becoming popular in the fifties, and the elite have now accumulated more than 60 years of experience spread over three generations of viewers. The results are staggering. People are no longer logical, as their opinions and ideas come directly from television. The images validate what they hear. This filter of tele-opinions gets automatically superimposed over their daily reality, and have become passive members of a plugged-in society, and can no longer think, talk, or write logically. For them, images and knowledge are synonymous.
In Europe, violence on television is as critical as in America. Specialized stations such as Baby TV and Baby First broadcast programs for babies 24/7. When toddlers are one year old, they are already watching at least one hour of television a day. Statistics from 1988 showed that during one week of TV watching, viewers witness 670 murders, 15 rapes, 848 fights, 419 shootings or explosions, 11 armed robberies, 8 suicides, 32 hostage takings, 27 torture scenes, 9 defenestration’s, 13 strangulations, and 11 war scenes. Nowadays, these types of events are not reserved to late hours. For example, Quebec’s popular TQS station presented the movie Terminator at 6:30 pm – just in time for kids.
And it’s Getting Worse!
Ever heard of Silent Sound Spread Spectrum or SSSS? It is a secret Pentagon psychotronic technology that has been operational since 1990. In 1991, it was used during the first Gulf War to manipulate Iraqi troops into surrendering en masse. Like compliant children, 200,000 men came out of their desert bunkers and fell to their knees before approaching US troops.
The SSSS is now available in your neighborhood – free of charge. It is carried to your brain with the use of several technologies, including chemtrails, cell towers and high definition digital television (HD-TV). In this way, the elite is aiming for total mind control to insure the compliance of its sheeple. Now you know why the government was so enthusiastic about letting us get digital converter boxes for a cheap price, because they want us to have access to high-quality television images.
Big Brother goes even further with digital streaming video that allows any person with a personal computer linked to the Internet to access and watch popular television programs. This is available for free through companies such as Hulu. In this way, computer monitors and HD-TV screens broadcast SSSS and combine it with subliminally-pulsed images to bring about specific emotions and physical responses to all listeners or a selected type of DNA (Blacks, Orientals, women, etc.). If the elite has a sample of a person’s DNA, it can even target selected individuals. Experimentation has shown that it is effective – with varying levels of efficiency – with about 85% of the population, while the remaining 15% seem to be immune to such mind control attempts.
What Should We Do?
What should we do now that we know? Well, truth is useless if we do not change our actions.
Number one: throw out the television. Even without this new mind-control technology, the television has always been a “box of lies.” Watching TV lowers one’s intelligence, and many statistics are there to prove it. Forget the “good educational shows” that are simply there to misinform you.
Number two: limit the time you spend in front of the computer and on the internet, and never watch TV shows from the Internet.
Number three: avoid other sources of do not use cell phones (whether ‘smart’ or not). Basically, it is like putting your head in the microwave oven and pushing the ‘ON’ button. It is difficult to avoid chem.-trails, but living a TV-free and cell-phone-free life is possible – you get so much more time to read, think (for yourself), meditate, exercise, cook, and keep good company.
The elite have hijacked our brains with their technology, but we still have our free will. We can choose to use it or not to use it. Which one will you choose?
- Brainwashing: How The British Use The Media for Mass Psychological Warfare, L. Wolfe
In my life time, I have noticed that some people are more inclined to be led/instructed than others, and I have concluded that they were born followers and had very little independence or individuality. They were easy believers, naïve, and complacent by nature, which made them an easy convert to the mass mind. I feel toward them as I would a person born deformed, with pity and sympathy, for their journey has few rewards and much hardship.

To anyone who had a passing knowledge of the nature of color revolutions and destabilization efforts in years past, the recent protests in Ukraine were an obvious example of foreign meddling in the domestic affairs of yet another Eastern European nation.
From the initial spates of violence coming largely from the direction of the protesters to the pro-EU and pro-IMF demands, it was clear from the very beginning that the Ukrainian people were being callously pulled back and forth between two world powers indifferent to any interests but their own.
These powers, the United States and Russia, have been covertly jockeying for more and more control over Ukraine, a strategic location for both countries, for the last several years. Yet, as the United States’ power and influence begins to wane and Russia’s begins to increase on the world stage, the risk of both powers clashing over Ukraine in a direct fashion becomes a bigger possibility by the day.
While tensions between the United States and Russia have escalated over the last three years through the Syrian crisis, Ukraine is more than a simple sphere-of-influence region for Russia. It is a sphere-of-influence region that borders the homeland. For this reason alone, the level of importance attributed to Ukraine by Russia is obviously higher than that of Syria in the long run.
Interestingly enough, it is for this same reason that the United States considers Ukraine such a vital sphere-of-influence nation as well. That is, the fact that Ukraine lies on the doorstep of Russia.
Although the reasons for considering Ukraine an extremely important part of the world by both the United States and Russia cannot simply be boiled down to that of a border issue, the fact remains that the potential for a direct collision between two world nuclear powers is a possibility if the meddling continues.
In the meantime, as the Ukrainian people are being used as battering rams for the will of world elites, they are quite clearly the guaranteed loser no matter what decision is made. With the recent success of the Western-backed color revolution, what is also clear is that the only winner in Ukraine is austerity, Fascism, the IMF, and, of course, the world elites. International bankers, as usual, are salivating over the coming feast that will come at the expense of the living standards of the Ukrainian people and the coffers of the Ukrainian government.
Even before a ruling government can be formed by the leading color revolutionary leaders Yatsenyuk, Klitschko, and other relevant agents of destabilization, the acting President, Oleksander Turchinov, is stating that European integration is a high priority of the new government. This, of course, means that Ukraine will soon move forward in becoming a full-fledged member in good standing of the new European Soviet known as the European Union.
In addition, leading contender for the post of Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, and the Parliamentary leader of the Fatherland Party, is now calling on the rest of Parliament to immediately come to agreement on a new government so that Ukraine can now crawl to the International Monetary Fund for “emergency economic assistance.” As one may expect, the IMF has already declared that it will require harsh austerity measures and other “economic changes” in exchange for any aid to Ukraine.
The $15 billion bailout package provided by Russia to Ukraine in December has now been suspended, placing Ukraine in imminent danger of default. The Hryvna, the Ukrainian currency, has been sharply devalued and the country’s bond rating has been downgraded in such a dramatic fashion that Ukraine is no longer able to borrow on international markets. Foreign reserves have also dropped dramatically.
If conditions persist, Ukraine will soon no longer be able to pay public pensions and salaries.
Yet austerity is not the only result of the recent Ukrainian “revolution.” Subtle and even outright Fascism has come to dominate not only the demonstrations themselves but the relatively young “transitional” phase now taking place.
Indeed, this relatively new trend of Fascist rule was enunciated in a recent statement by Natalia Vitrenko of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, a party that asserts its opposition to both the Orange Revolution installment of Yuschenko as well as the polices of Yanukovych.
Vitrenko first began by describing the nature of the movement used to oust Yanukovych by pointing out that many of the most powerful elements of the anti-Yanukovych movement, or Euromaidan, were indeed fascists and neo-Nazi’s. She stated,
Washington and Brussels should hear our warnings. We hold them responsible for all they have done to transfer power to the political forces responsible for establishing this totalitarian Nazi regime in Ukraine, with the inevitable gross violation of the rights and freedoms of millions of our fellow citizens.
The U.S. and EU should know that this power grab by political parties and movements including neo-Nazi forces (such as “Svoboda – Freedom” and “Right Sector”) , announced the implementation of a national revolution under the slogans “Ukraine for Ukrainians,” "Glory to the nation – death to enemies," "Muscovite tools and Communists to the gallows!" and others.
Starting on February 22, this new government must assume all responsibility throughout Ukraine for the violation of the rights and freedoms of citizens.
Vitrenko then went on to discuss the events currently unfolding in Ukraine including the capture of government buildings as well as political intimidation, force, beatings, shootings, and even lynchings of those seen as pro-government or opposed to the positions of the Western-backed fascists. Vitrenko states,
Insurgents and terrorists continue to capture Euromaidan administrative buildings and local authorities in the South and East of Ukraine. Using terrorist methods, voters have been deprived of their rights and of the authority of their elected representatives in local councils. Civilians defending their choices have been mercilessly shot by gunmen armed with Kalashinkovs, rifles, and other combat weapons, as for example on February 22 in Lugansk.
Militants not endowed with any legitimate police authority have arrogated emergency police powers to themselves, using axes and sticks to block central thoroughfares, halting cars to carry out inspections and verification of documents of passengers, and arresting people. They have blocked the entrance to the airport and thus grossly violated the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, which guarantees the inviolability of the person, freedom of movement, the presumption of innocence, and the right to security and life. All the people of Ukraine have been humiliated and denied their dignity and rights.
Already on February 23 representatives of the new government announced the formation of the Ukrainian nation: they proclaim that anyone who uses the Russian language will be subjected to deprivation of their native-born status of Ukrainian ethnicity and will be discriminated against in civil and political rights.
The new regime has already announced their intention to ban the broadcast channels of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine, branding them as the TV channels of a hostile state . This is the way the new government defends the European values of freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
The regime is preparing lists of enemies who are subject to proscription. This mechanism will deprive of civil and political rights all those who do not share the neo-Nazi views of the new Ukrainian authorities.
Across the country, ghoulish lynchings continue. People are being beaten and stoned, while undesirable members of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine are subject to mass intimidation and local officials see their families and children targeted by death threats if they do not support the installation of this new political power. The new Ukrainian authorities are massively burning the offices of political parties they do not like, and have publicly announced the threat of criminal prosecution and prohibition of political parties and public organizations that do not share the ideology and goals of the new regime.
In addition, Vitrenko adds that “Euromaidan militants are seizing Orthodox shrines like the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, seeking to transfer them to dissenting churchmen like Filaret. The intention is to grab all the churches of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate to conform them to the Vatican.”
In other words, those few participants who at first joined the movement to fight against government corruption and for whatever they perceived to be a better political structure or simply those that were paid to fight in the streets, have been pushed out of the movement after the seizure of power was accomplished. In their place are the more militant wings of the movement such as the political parties mentioned above and the brutal thugs sanctioned by Western governments.
In the end, with the full support of the West, particularly the U.S. State Department, the recent successful “regime change” effort in Ukraine still has the potential to turn into an explosive situation in the literal sense. Aside from the moral qualms of allowing foreign powers the ability to dictate to smaller states the political direction which they must take, provoking a confrontation between two major world powers – both with nuclear capability – is a recipe for disaster!
From Syria to Ukraine, a new geopolitical race has been initiated with a clear destination firmly in the minds of the world political elites currently directing both sides of the contest. That direction, while potentially beneficial for those in positions of power, spells nothing but destruction for the rest of us.

As anyone with an instinct for danger can see, America is not the only country being manipulated by more powerful people than those who are running the different governments. In fact, the Powers That Be, are global in their actions and power bases, and the prospective government leaders are just pawns in the game of who runs the world, and where it is headed. This operand is sufficient enough to confuse the people and keep the PTB well insulated from direct attack by the militant media, sometimes called the internet reformation, and the only source of truth for the people. The sophistication of the organization that controls the world’s monetary systems and election of government leaders is such that few in this world understand who and what is happening to destroy the traditional stability of their countries. Multiply this with different methods of global mind control that results in the apathy, complacency, and narcissism of the people, and you have a near total lack of interest in regaining control of their governments. The people have been so completely dominated they have given in to accepting tyranny. If by chance the information on this web site awakens someone’s instinct for self preservation, they are still faced with untold hours of study before understanding how powerful the International Investment Banking Cartel really is., and what their objective means to the future of humanity. I have concluded that even if the Banking Cartel was assassinated they surely have protected their assets and directed them into the hands of intelligent people who will restructure what has been lost by their death. Only GOD has the power and ability to save us from destruction and slavery, and He will not protect a world that denies He exists.
EARTH, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!
February 26th, 2014 by olddog
By Thorsten Polleit
on February 26, 2014
Credit is a wonderful tool that can help advance the division of labor, thereby increasing productivity and prosperity. The granting of credit enables savers to spread their income over time, as they prefer. By taking out loans, investors can implement productive spending plans that they would be unable to afford using their own resources.
The economically beneficial effects of credit can only come about, however, if the underlying credit and monetary system is solidly based on free-market principles. And here is a major problem for today’s economies: the prevailing credit and monetary regime is irreconcilable with the free market system.
At present, all major currencies in the world — be it the US dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen, or the Chinese renminbi — represent government sponsored unbacked paper, or, “fiat” monies. These monies have three characteristic features. First, central banks have a monopoly on money production. Second, money is created by bank lending — or “out of thin air” — without loans being backed by real savings. And third, money that is dematerialized, can be expanded in any quantity politically desired.
A fiat money regime suffers from a number of far-reaching economic and ethical flaws. It is inflationary, it inevitably causes waves of speculation, provokes bad investments and “boom-and-bust” cycles, and generally encourages an excessive built up of debt. And fiat money unjustifiably favors the few at the expense of the many: the early receivers of the new money benefit at the expense of those receiving the new money at a later point in time (“Cantillon Effect”).
One issue deserves particular attention: the burden of debt that accumulates over time in a fiat money regime will become unsustainable. The primary reason for this is that the act of creating credit and money out of thin air, accompanied by artificially suppressed interest rates, encourages poor investments: malinvestments that do not have the earning power to service the resulting rise in debt in full.
Governments are especially guilty of accumulating an excessive debt burden, greatly helped by central banks providing an inexhaustible supply of credit at artificially low costs. Politicians finance election promises with credit, and voters acquiesce because they expect to benefit from government’s “horn of plenty.” The ruling class and the class of the ruled are quite hopeful that they can defer repayment to future generations to sort out.
However, there comes a point in time when private investors are no longer willing to refinance maturing debt, let alone finance a further rise in indebtedness of banks, corporations, and governments. In such a situation, the paper money boom is doomed to collapse: rising concern about credit defaults is a deadly enemy to the fiat money regime. And once the flow of credit dries up, the boom turns into bust. This is exactly what was about to happen in many fiat currency areas around the world in 2008.
A fiat money bust can easily develop into a full-scale depression, meaning failing banks, corporations filing for bankruptcy, and even some governments going belly up. The economy contracts sharply, causing mass unemployment. Such a development will predictably be interpreted as an ordeal — rather than an economic adjustment made inevitable by the ravages of the preceding fiat money boom.
Everyone — those of the ruling class and those of the class of the ruled — will predictably want to escape disaster. Threatened with extreme economic hardship and political desperation, their eyes will turn to the central bank which, alas, can print all the money that is politically desired to keep overstretched borrowers liquid, first and foremost banks and governments.
Running the electronic printing press will be perceived as the policy of the least evil — a reaction that could be observed many times throughout the troubled history of unbacked paper money. Since the end of 2008, many central banks have successfully kept their commercial banks afloat by providing them with new credit at virtually zero interest rates.
This policy is actually meant to make banks churn out even more credit and fiat money. More credit and money, provided at record low interest rates, is seen as a remedy of the problems caused by an expansion of credit and money, provided at low interest rates, in the first place. This is hardly a confidence-inspiring route to take.
It was Ludwig von Mises who understood that a fiat money boom will, and actually must, ultimately end in a collapse of the economic system. The only open question would be whether such an outcome will be preceded by a debasement of the currency or not:
The boom cannot continue indefinitely. There are two alternatives. Either the banks continue the credit expansion without restriction and thus cause constantly mounting price increases and an ever-growing orgy of speculation, which, as in all other cases of unlimited inflation, ends in a “crack-up boom” and in a collapse of the money and credit system. Or the banks stop before this point is reached, voluntarily renounce further credit expansion and thus bring about the crisis. The depression follows in both instances.
A monetary policy dedicated to averting credit defaults by all means would speak for a fairly tough scenario going forward: depression preceded by inflation. This is a scenario quite similar to what happened, for instance, in the fiat money inflation in eighteenth-century France.
According to Andrew Dickson White, France issued paper money
seeking a remedy for a comparatively small evil in an evil infinitely more dangerous. To cure a disease temporary in its character, a corrosive poison was administered, which ate out the vitals of French prosperity.
It progressed according to a law in social physics which we may call the "law of accelerating issue and depreciation." It was comparatively easy to refrain from the first issue; it was exceedingly difficult to refrain from the second; to refrain from the third and with those following was practically impossible.
It brought … commerce and manufactures, the mercantile interest, the agricultural interest, to ruin. It brought on these the same destruction which would come to a Hollander opening the dykes of the sea to irrigate his garden in a dry summer.
It ended in the complete financial, moral and political prostration of France — a prostration from which only a Napoleon could raise it.

At one point in my life I had enough creditability with the younger men working around me, which resulted in many asking me how a working man could have a nice home like mine, two almost new vehicles, and no debt at 35. This is of course not an accomplishment to brag about, but to these young men it seemed like I must have done something illegal to accomplish. I told them that I had always kept my debt repayment no higher than fifty percent of my cash flow, which gave me room to maneuver my assets and provide for savings. I could have started out buried in debt as they did but it just never made sense to me to be bent over a barrel for half my life. As my business grew, I never borrowed money to operate on, and only borrowed for capital expansion (equipment that was needed to increase cash flow) I shopped around for the lowest interest and lowest prices and never purchased the best of everything. Most products needed to run a business can be located at better prices than what the biggest suppliers sell. I could go on and on about this subject, but few people will take advice that will cause them to wait until they can buy what they want without borrowing the money to buy it. Therein lies the snake that poisons they’re life. They invent excuses why they can’t. Young man/woman take this to the bank, adjust your finances so you can put 25% of your net pay in savings every week, and only use it for medical emergencies. Put you’re saving’s in something that increases in value, or earns as much interest as you would have to pay to borrow it, and don’t think you cannot buy a house without a mortgage because I did it, and it can still be done.

Stockman – $500 Trillion Derivative Bomb Threatens The World!
Today David Stockman warned King World News that a terrifying $500 trillion derivative bomb threatens the entire world. He also went on to caution about a second danger facing the world. KWN takes Stockman’s warnings very seriously because he is the man former President Reagan called on in 1981, during that crisis, to become Director of the Office of Management and Budget and help save the United States from collapse. Below is what Stockman had to say in part II of a series of powerful interviews that will be released today.
Stockman: “I think the great ticking time bomb is interest rate swaps. The last time I checked they were in the range of $500 trillion. Who knows what’s lurking underneath the surface there?….
Stockman: “The single greatest danger is that the game the central banks are playing today will come to an abrupt and destructive end. That’s the danger because the whole system is now running off the short-run maneuvers, liquidity, and guidance that the central banks are injecting into the market every day. The danger is that one of these days the whole system will fail because it is unnatural and artificial, and when that happens it’s going to be a pretty difficult (and chaotic) time.” read more!
Just think a moment, the International Investment Bankers have been sucking our country dry for more years than anyone on earth has lived. Does that make sense folks? when will the people understand they simply cannot have a life of total leisure, we must spend time learning what is going on in our government and discuss what to do about it. By now, the entire world could have financial security if it were not for these blood suckers. Please for the sake of your children and Grand children get off your ass and learn. If I can find and learn what is wrong with the world, there is no excuse for anyone to remain ignorant. There is a way to fix the world. KILL THE BANKERS, and confiscate their wealth! Does that offend you? You don’t seem to get upset when the bankers have millions killed in their wars, while you work in their war factories though, do you? Wake the hell up America!

[This article is part of a series. See Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the US Courts.]
We begin our analysis of the legal machinations of the NSA by looking at the secret court system which supposedly practices judicial oversight over the agency. This Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court or FISC) was created in 1978 as a result of recommendations of the Church Committee, composed after a series of intelligence scandals in the 1970s. The court was purportedly created as an additional safeguard against unlawful activity by US intelligence agencies, which had been found to have committed various kinds of unlawful surveillance activities.
The goal of the FISA court, as originally conceived, was to place judicial oversight on the surveillance activities of the NSA, by requiring the agency to obtain warrants from the court before intercepting communications. This was to place the NSA under the same kind of legal constraints as regular police, with requirements for evidence being put before a court in order to obtain a warrant for search. However, unlike the court system for regular police warrants, the judicial system for the NSA is far more secretive. In order to give judicial scrutiny to preserve the secrecy of NSA activities, the FISA court meets in secret with only government representatives present at its proceedings. The hearings are closed to the public and the rulings of the judges are classified, and rarely released after the fact. (Some rulings have been partly declassified, but are still heavily redacted.) The judges in the FISA court hear applications from a representative of the NSA, and ask questions, allowing the agency to amend their applications to meet any shortcomings. Adversarial argument from other parties is absent, since there are no other parties at the hearing.
Some of this is similar to the operation of public courts for regular police warrants, but there is a great deal more secrecy, and a great deal more power granted to the government. One distinction between the FISA Court, and regular public courts issuing warrants for police searches, is the type of warrant system that is practiced under the FISA Court. For police searches it is generally the case that the police will apply for a warrant to surveil a particular person, or a small group or people, and give some evidence of “probable cause” for a search, i.e., the police must convince the court that there is reasonable suspicion for surveillance on a case-by-case basis. Under the FISA Court the warrants for the NSA are much wider in scope. Many of the warrants authorize the collection of communications data on a particular phone carrier, capturing the communications of millions of people over sustained periods of time. Other warrants are “procedure-based” warrants which authorize a proposed data-collection process, subject to various “minimization procedures” designed to confine the querying of data. These generally allow mass data-collection on a population, with application of the minimization procedures left to the NSA.
As with other law enforcement authorities, the record of the NSA in obtaining warrants from the FISA court is imposing. In the 33,949 applications that were resolved from 1979-2012, only 11 were rejected (0.0324%). (The rejection rate for other wiretap applications in state and federal courts is similarly low.) Though originally designed merely to issue secret warrants for surveillance, the powers of the FISA Court have expanded over time, with a large expansion of power occurring in 2008, when the Bush administration retroactively immunized any “electronic communication service provider” from any liability for their complicity in unlawful NSA surveillance.
In order to deal with a large number of warrant applications, the powers of the FISA Court have expanded to the point that it has undertaken quasi-constitutional proceedings, allegedly validating the surveillance programs as being within the constitutional powers of the US government. Even in this latter function, the hearings have been closed to the public and have been conducted with only the government giving arguments to the court. Hence, the government has had free rein to be the only party represented at hearings which have purported to determine its own legal powers under the US Constitution. For this reason, one commentator has noted that, “[i]n truth, the FISC has basically become a parallel Supreme Court, but one which operates in almost total secrecy.”
The effect of this secret court system has been to allow the NSA to build up 34 years of judicial precedents in favor of its expansive powers, with a large body of purported constitutional findings validating its own power. All of this has been conducted behind closed doors, without the inconvenience of opposing argument from other parties. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this secret court system has opened up opportunities for judicial capture for the NSA. As noted by legal scholar Elizabeth Goitein, “[l]ike any other group that meets in secret behind closed doors with only one constituency appearing before them, they’re subject to capture and bias.”
For former FISA court judge James Robertson, these remarks have rung true to such an extent that he has publicly complained about the ex parte nature of the FISA court proceedings. According to this former member of the court, “[w]hat FISA does is not adjudication, but approval. This works just fine when it deals with individual applications for warrants, but the 2008 amendment has turned the FISA court into an administrative agency making rules for others to follow.”
To the extent that judicial capture has been resisted by the court, it has nonetheless functioned as a compliant entity to the NSA, through the fact that any criticisms against the unlawful actions of the NSA have been kept secret, and have been without any serious legal consequence to the agency. When the Chief Judge of the FISA court was alerted to a mass of systematic misrepresentations to the court by the NSA, the consequence was a “stern rebuke” in a classified memorandum that was not available to the public until years later. (In fact, the opinion was only declassified due to public pressure as a result of the Snowden leaks. If not for these leaks it is likely that the opinion would still remain classified today.) In March 2009, following breaches of the courts orders, the Chief Judge found that the testimony of General Keith Alexander setting out the NSA interpretation of the court’s orders “strained credulity” by interpreting a part of the orders as effectively being optional. He also found that “[t]he minimization procedures proposed by the government in each successive application and approved and adopted as binding by the orders of the [FISA Court] have been so frequently and systematically violated that it can fairly be said that this critical element of the overall [metadata] regime has never functioned effectively.” Despite lacking confidence that the NSA would comply with future orders, the Chief Judge allowed the mass collection of metadata to continue, and allowed the government to continue to apply for access to this data on a case-by-case basis, or for imminent threats, until such time as they completed a review of their procedures. The NSA completed their review and the regular operation of the mass-surveillance program was restored shortly afterward.
Some commentators have taken this judicial rebuke by the FISA court as proof of the “toughness” of the court on the NSA, in fact, it is proof of their subservience to the agency. Despite finding that there had been systematic misrepresentations to the court by the NSA, no action was taken against official who had given false statements to the court. There was no disciplinary action of any kind against personnel of the agency, and the “rebuke” of the court remained a private classified document, only available to the agency being criticized. NSA officials who had systematically misled the court were free to read this rebuke knowing that no consequence would follow from it, since no member of the public could read about their actions. When the matter was later exposed to the public (as a result of the Snowden leaks) the Chief Judge complained that his court “… is forced to rely upon the accuracy of the information that is provided to the Court.” The surveillance programs of the NSA continued, with ongoing approval by the court, after a short period of technical review conducted by the NSA. Such “toughness” as this is what passes for “checks and balances” within the system of secret courts.
The dubious nature of the FISA court is well-understood within the wider judicial system, a fact which was clear in the Klayman preliminary judgment. The stark distinction between the secretive FISA court and the public court system was recognized by Judge Leon when he observed that, “… no court has ever recognized a special need sufficient to justify continuous, daily searches of virtually every American citizen without any particularized suspicion. In effect, the government urges me to be the first non-FISC judge to sanction such a dragnet.” It is notable here that Judge Leon felt that it was significant that he was the first non-FISC judge to consider the matter, a tacit recognition that the judgments of the FISC cannot be regarded as true constitutional scrutiny.
Legal scholar Randy Barnett has argued that surveillance programs by a secret court violates the requirement for “due process of law.” According to Barnett, “[s]ecret judicial proceedings adjudicating the rights of private parties, without any ability to participate or even read the legal opinions of the judges, is the antithesis of the due process of law.” Though we refer to such an institution as a “court” system in the positive-law sense, in truth, such a “court” lacks many of the characteristics of a proper court. It is in fact more akin to bodies such as the English Star Chamber, which conducted judicial hearings in secret, issuing secret rulings affecting parties who were not represented in its hearings.

Saudi Pakistani and Iraqi Prison Inmates Replenish Al Qaeda Ranks
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Several hundred convicted criminals who escaped from carefully guarded prisons in Iraq have recently joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as well as the Al Qaeda affiliated rebel force, Jabhat Al Nusra.
According to the NYT: “the prison breaks also reflect the surging demand for experienced fighters which led to a concerted effort by militant groups, particularly the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, to seek them in the one place where they were held en masse — Iraq’s prison cells.” (Tim Arango and Eric Schmitt,
Escaped Inmates From Iraq Fuel Syrian Insurgency, NYT, February 12, 2014):
“American officials estimate, a few hundred of the escapees have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, several in senior leadership roles.”
Acknowledged by the NYT, the prison breakouts are part of the recruitment of jihadists to serve in the Syrian insurgency. What is not mentioned, however, is that the recruitment of mercenaries is coordinated by NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar with the support of the Obama administration. Moreover, known and documented, most Al Qaeda affiliated forces are covertly supported by Western intelligence including the CIA, Mossad and Britain’s MI6.
The prison breaks in Iraq are part of a coordinated endeavor entitled “Operation Breaking the Walls,” established in July 2012 by the ISIS. Acknowledged by an American counterterrorism official quoted by the NYT,
“The influx of these terrorists, who collectively have decades of battlefield experience, probably has strengthened the group and deepened its leadership bench.”
US Occupation forces and military personnel in the prisons turned a blind eye to the breakouts.
Abu Aisha was originally arrested by the Americans and then released from Camp Bucca, the infamous American prison in southern Iraq, in 2008. He was rearrested by the Iraqis in 2010.
“Finally, they put me in Abu Ghraib, and I again met some of the leaders and fighters I knew, including princes from Al Qaeda — Iraqis, Arabs and other nationalities,” he said. “Most of them had been at Bucca as well.”
One night last summer, as Abu Aisha sat in his cell waiting, as he did each day, for his date with the executioner, explosions and gunfire erupted and a familiar prison guard opened the doors to his cell and told him to leave immediately. With hundreds of others, Abu Aisha ran through the prison’s corridors until he escaped through a hole that had been blasted through a wall. He hopped into a waiting Kia truck that took him to freedom — and back to the battlefield.
Abu Aisha said leaders of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria gave him a choice: leave and fight with them in Syria, or stay and fight in Iraq. (NYT, op cit, emphasis added)

Coordinated Program: Saudi Arabia
The recent prison breakouts have the hallmarks of a carefully planned covert operation requiring the complicity of the US military and Iraqi prison personnel.
The prison breakouts are not limited to Iraq. Planned prison escapes to join the jihadist insurgency have occurred simultaneously in several countries, indicating the existence of a coordinated recruitment program.
Saudi Arabia –which has played a central role in channeling weapons (including anti-aircraft missiles) to the jihadists on behalf of Washington– has been actively involved in the recruitment of mercenaries from the kingdom’s prisons.
In Saudi Arabia, however, there were no breakouts: criminals serving jail sentences were released from the kingdom’s prisons on condition they join the Syrian jihad.
A top secret memo sent by the Ministry of Interior in Saudi Arabia “reveals the Saudi Kingdomsent death-row inmates, sentenced to execution by decapitation, to Syria to fight Jihad against the Syrian government in exchange for commuting their sentences.”
According to the April 17, 2012 memo, Saudi Arabia recruited some 1200 inmates, “offering them a full pardon and a monthly salary for their families, who were to remain in the Kingdom, in exchange for “…training for the sake of sending to the Jihad in Syria.”
Among those released from prison and recruited in Saudi Arabia were inmates from Yemen, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Jordan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Egypt, Pakistan, Iraq, and Kuwait.
From “Convicted Criminal” to “Freedom Fighter”
The Western military alliance is not only supporting and financing a terrorist insurgency, supplying it with advanced weapons systems, it is also complicit in the recruitment of convicted criminals.
What is at stake is the coordination of several consecutive stages involving Prison escapes/releases, Recruitment of Mercenaries, the Training of “Freedom Fighters” and the Procurement and Delivery of Weapons to the insurgency:
1. Release and/or escape of convicted criminals and fighters from prisons;
2. Recruitment of the released/escaped inmates into Syria rebel formations;
3. Paramilitary training of the released/escaped prisoners, where applicable, e.g. in Saudi and Qatari training programs including religious indoctrination;
4. Dispatching the newly trained jihadist rebels to the war theater. The former prison inmates are sent to Syria to join the insurgency. They are integrated as mercenaries into one of the Al Qaeda affiliated forces.
5. The military equipping of the newly trained mercenaries (e.g. Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar) and the procurement and delivery of military hardware to the insurgency on behalf of the US Administration which is funding the inflow of weapons.
The Insurgency’s Recruitment of Prison Inmates: Part of an Ongoing Process
Prison breaks occurred in Summer 2013 in Libya and Pakistan and Iraq in what appeared to be a carefully coordinated program. Those reported by the NYT are a continuation of an earlier project of prison breakouts.
On July 23, 2013, Abu Ghraib and Taji prisons were broken into in a carefully waged operation, leading to the escape of 500-1000 inmates, most of whom were recruited into the ranks of ISIS:
The attacks were allegedly carried out after months of preparations on behalf of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which is a merger between Al-Qaeda’s affiliates in Syria and Iraq.
Between 500 to 1,000 prisoners have escaped as a result of the attack, “most of them were convicted senior members of Al-Qaeda and had received death sentences,” said Hakim Zamili, a senior member of the security and defense committee in parliament.
Suicide bombers drove cars with explosives into the gates of the prison on the outskirts of Baghdad on Sunday night, while gunmen attacked guards with mortar fire as well as rocket propelled grenades. (Russia Today, July 2013)
On Saturday, July 26, at a maximum security prison in Benghazi, Libya, an almost identical prison break to the one that happened in Iraq occurred:
There were riots within the prison, with fires set. Suddenly gunmen flocked upon the prison and opened fire. About 1,200 of Libya’s most deadly inmates escaped. Peregrino Brimah, Obama’s Syria Endgame:
New Al Qaeda “Recruits” Dispatched to Syria, Global Research, September 4, 2013, emphasis added)
And midnight, July 29-30:
Taliban gunmen with rocket launchers and suicide bombers, wearing police uniforms attacked the largest jail in Dera Ismail Khan, in a northern Pakistani province, releasing over 300 inmates. They came well coordinated, with rocket-propelled grenades and freed top militants–some of the Taliban’s most deadly men. They used loud speakers to announce the names of the men they needed. According to an official
(Reuters), only 70 of the 200 guards on duty were at work that fateful night, suggesting higher level security-government involvement.(Ibid, emphasis added)
Syrians across the Country Say No to Terrorism and Foreign Interference
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, February 21, 2014
Url of this article:
We invite GR readers to review the video and images below and make up their own mind as to what is happening in Syria.
There is a mass movement across the country against foreign interference. This mass movement is not being reported by the Western media.
The Syrian population does not support the “freedom fighters” recruited and trained in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey.
What is at stake is the sovereignty and survival of a country with a longstanding history. This movement also includes people who are opposed to the Syrian government.
The Syrian people are fully aware that Washington is supporting Al Qaeda. They know that this is a US sponsored insurgency and that the rebels who are killing civilians are mercenaries.
They are fully aware that this is a war of aggression which is intent upon destroying their country.
Let us spread this message far and wide.

The Obama Administration’s Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is poised to place government monitors in newsrooms across the country in an absurdly draconian attempt to intimidate and control the media.
Before you dismiss this assertion as utterly preposterous (we all know how that turned out when the Tea Party complained that it was being targeted by the IRS), this bombshell of an accusation comes from an actual FCC Commissioner.
FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai reveals a brand new Obama Administration program that he fears could be used in “pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.”
As Commissioner Pai explains in the Wall Street Journal:
Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its "Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs," or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring.
The purpose of the CIN, according to the FCC, is to ferret out information from television and radio broadcasters about "the process by which stories are selected" and how often stations cover "critical information needs," along with "perceived station bias" and "perceived responsiveness to underserved populations."
In fact, the FCC is now expanding the bounds of regulatory powers to include newspapers, which it has absolutely no authority over, in its new government monitoring program.
The FCC has apparently already selected eight categories of “critical information” “that it believes local newscasters should cover.”
That’s right, the Obama Administration has developed a formula of what it believes the free press should cover, and it is going to send government monitors into newsrooms across America to stand over the shoulders of the press as they make editorial decisions.
This poses a monumental danger to constitutionally protected free speech and freedom of the press.
Every major repressive regime of the modern era has begun with an attempt to control and intimidate the press.
As Thomas Jefferson so eloquently said, "our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost."
The federal government has absolutely no business determining what stories should and should not be run, what is critical for the American public and what is not, whether it perceives a bias, and whose interests are and are not being served by the free press.
It’s an unconscionable assault on our free society.
Imagine a government monitor telling Fox News it needed to cover stories in the same way as MSNBC or Al Jazeera. Imagine an Obama Administration official walking in to the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal and telling it that the American public would be better served if it is stopped reporting on the IRS scandal or maybe that reporting on ObamaCare “glitches” is driving down enrollment.
It’s hard to imagine anything more brazenly Orwellian than government monitors in newsrooms.
Is it any wonder that the U.S. now ranks 46th in the world for freedom of the press? Reporters Without Boarders called America’s precipitous drop of 13 places in its recent global rankings “one of the most significant declines” in freedom of the press in the world.
Freedom of the press is proudly extolled in the First Amendment, yet our nation now barely makes the top fifty for media freedom.
We cannot allow the unfathomable encroachment on our free speech and freedom of the press to continue.
We’ve seen, and defeated, this kind of attempt to squelch free speech before in the likes of the Fairness Doctrine and the Grassroots Lobbying Bill (incidentally one of my first projects at the ACLJ). Each one of these euphemistically named government programs is nothing more than an underhanded attempt to circumvent the Constitution and limit free speech – speech that the government finds inconvenient. They’re equally unconstitutional, and they each must be defeated.
Join the ACLJ as we take a stand. Sign the ACLJ’s Petition to Stop the Obama FCC’s Free Speech Monitors.

On second thought, what's the big deal? The scumbag media industry is owned by the same dirt bag Bankers that OBUMA works for, so don't get your panties in a wad, we're no worse off than we have been since the big buyout!

"The only way to win the battle over the minds of an ideology is to turn the friends of your enemies, against them. Although the task is great, the reward is victory."-Ron Ewart
In all of our wars and all of the difficulties we have faced as a nation in over two centuries, if we would let a little thing like a socialist president and some hopelessly misguided Democrats get in the way of where we wanted to go, America would have never gotten where it is. If there was a wall, we went over it, around it, under it ….. or through it. If there was a lock in our way, we "picked it" or blew it up. If there was a frontier, we explored it. If there was a beachhead, we took it. If there was a foreign or domestic tyrant, we pulled his teeth and rendered him impotent. If there was a bridge to be built, we built it. If we wanted to go into space, into space we went. Literally nothing stood in the way of Americans, when they wanted to create something, build something, stop a dictator, or get to a place where they wanted to go. We were unstoppable and contrary to popular opinion, we still are. Hell no we are not perfect, but our accomplishments as a nation, a culture and as a people, are the envy of the world.
When a person or a nation was in need, we met that need out of the greatness, goodness and kindness of our collective hearts. Americans are the most generous people on planet earth and don't let anyone tell you different. Make no mistake we could do all these things because we were not only free, but that freedom allowed us to create the wealth from which we were able to BE generous.
Which brings us to today. How is it that Americans, who not only carved out an unprecedented free society based on unalienable individual rights and conquered a continent, but who also created a country of vast wealth and riches, would let a little thing like an Obama, or a corrupt Congress, or a mis-guided judiciary, stand in the way of reclaiming our freedom and our Republic? Have we lost our courage to enter into a fight to prevent being enslaved? Are we so afraid of losing what we have, that we would back away from aggressively challenging those that are trying to take it away, even if those that are trying to take it away are some of our own people? Just because our enemy is a domestic one and not foreign, does that preclude us from taking them on? Have we grown so timid and apathetic that we shrink in fear when a fight is thrust upon us and ladies and gentlemen, a fight is being thrust upon us like never before? It is a deadly domestic fight between two opposing ideologies and a government that uses those opposing ideologies to divide, conquer and enslave us.
Must we be frozen like a deer in the headlights until a charismatic leader appears, before we challenge those that are hell bent on robbing the fuel from our engine, the bullets from our guns and the faith in our God and then locking us in chains and throwing the key away?
If this is true, then America has little chance to restore itself. But we don't for one minute believe that this is true. Still it begs the question, who is going to re-start America's engine? Who will find the combination that will unlock our gas tank and fill it with fuel? Who will turn the key that starts our engine, revs it up and peels rubber towards the goalpost of freedom?
We know for sure that it won't be one man. It will be millions of men and women who have united under the foundation of unalienable rights and the willingness to sacrifice all to preserve those rights for current and future generations. It will be a million charismatic individuals, or just hard-working, determined plodders, that will inspire others to follow him, or her. Some will take on the city, or county council. Some will take on the school board. Some will take on the state legislatures and it will make no difference what political stripe the council member or the legislator wears. Each will be equally challenged by those who will not tolerate the destruction of "THEIR" America!
As we get our feet wet taking on local and state governments and institutions, it will give us the courage and experience to crack the big nut, an out-of-control federal government. Because you see, all across this great land are individual after individual and group after group that are springing up out of no where to take on the status quo that has grown like a cancer, out of 100 years of apathy and indifference to what government was doing. Some might call these individuals and groups the Tea Party. Others might call it a grand awakening.
The infiltration of national and international special interests and policies into American institutions is being challenged. Radical environmentalism and its brainchild, man-caused global warming, are being debunked day after day no matter what government or the scientists say. Resistance to world government and the attempts to dissolve American sovereignty are also growing. Government programs that are fully designed to brainwash and indoctrinate our children, like Common Core State Standards, are getting a more thorough vetting and then discarded at the local level. Talk of dismantling the U. S. Department of Education grows stronger. Small skirmishes are turning into wins as the people, men and women, shrug off their fears and thrust their angry noses into the closed club of power politics.
High tension is in the air and changes are riding on the wind like we have never seen. There is a grand awakening and those that have perpetrated the destruction of America grow nervous and are slinging the arrows of invectives and the searing flame of the race card. They are fighting back to maintain their power, but their actions are taking on the sour smell of desperation and their power is showing signs of weakening, as the rising crescendo of the American spirit and patriotism echoes across the fruited plains and reverberates through the canyons and valleys of our mighty mountains ….. from sea to shining sea. The enemy is on the defensive and as the crescendo rises even more, they will eventually be on the run. We WILL reclaim a free America!
"So much of life presents itself as a bundle of sticks. If we try to take on the whole bundle at one time, we find the task too daunting, get frustrated and turn away or give up. And so it is with our struggle to preserve, protect and defend freedom and liberty. The bundle we must break appears to be overwhelming, unless we take the bundle apart and start breaking (fixing) the 'sticks', one-by-one. Even armed with this knowledge, so many of us lament, '….. but there are so many sticks, how can we possibly break them all?' And indeed there are many 'sticks'. But if we don't start breaking the 'sticks' right now, one-by-one, more will be added to the bundle until no matter how we try to take the bundle apart, no matter how many 'sticks' we break, many more will be added to the bundle and the task becomes too difficult."(from one of our previous articles)
The first major "stick" to break is dumping the current president and taking control of both houses of congress. The second is to repeal Obama Care and replace it with sound medical insurance practices based on the doctor/patient relationship. Without these two significant changes, we will not have sufficient political power to re-shape our government and roll back what the Progressive movement has done, a movement that has taken us to the brink of national bankruptcy and just possibly merge America into global government. We must, once and for all, break the back of the flawed policies of Keynesian economics that has led us to this bankruptcy. If we fail to do this, it doesn't mean that we will be denied victory in the end. It just means we will have to fight harder and longer at the local and state level, where we can win.
But what if we could break the first "stick" with a simple image and that image became so ingrained into the body politic that it took on a life of its own? What if that image was a prediction of the future and people started believing in the prediction so much that it would change the way they think about who is in charge of our government and that image influenced how they vote? What if that image flashed across the Internet and went viral? Sometimes it only takes a "face" to launch a thousand ships, or a "shot heard 'round the world" to start a revolution, or a simple idea to start a religion, or a powerful image to take down a dictator, or a socialist? Have you created that one image Americans can rally around? E-mail it to us in JPG format. If we choose your image, we will share it with our national reading audience and give you all the credit.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have been advocating for years that if the American people would just focus on ONE ISSUE that is representative of the destruction of America by this Administration, a hopelessly divided Congress and the progressive ideology, and they did so by the millions, that issue would be resolved in days. Perhaps the rallying cry for those millions could be your image.
In each community, each county, each state and finally all of America, we must find the "sticks" we can break that will give us a win, starting with one of the more simpler "sticks". Start with a restriction, a law, or an ordinance and work collectively to break (repeal) it. They (the government) won't be expecting you to become the tiger and we have found that government backs up when confronted by the sheer force of people who have right on their side. Staircase off that "win" to the next restriction, the next law, or ordinance and then repeal it. The strategy here is that people will join winners but they will shy away from, or ignore losers. Once engaged, you will find that defending freedom can be infectious and personally rewarding.
We know for sure that America's tank is not empty and her engine is still in fine working order. There is power under the hood and we just need some guys to come by to put some more gas in the tank and some brave drivers to take her out on the road. We need more of us to expose the corruption, the double-dealing, the crony capitalism and the irrational compassion that has enveloped our institutions and robbed us of our financial and moral strength. Then we need to spread that message far and wide.
People in general, hate corruption and backroom deals and will voice their displeasure over it, especially at the voting booth. That is what is going to happen at the midterms in 2014 because of the disaster that is Obama Care. We need to start undoing, by political pressure, all of the social and environmental unconstitutional laws that have been passed, at all levels of government. We need to take our schools back by checking what our children are being taught and then pressuring the local school boards to bring sanity and common sense back to our schools and textbooks.
We need more people to take on the political dolts at the local and state level and we need millions more people, if we are to have any effect. The simple idea of freedom can be reborn, that is if enough people grasp the importance of that idea and the deadly implications if that idea should die.
In the end, we either choose freedom and are willing to defend it at whatever cost, or we choose enslavement. Hopefully, there will be enough of us that will choose freedom. But time is of the essence and "sticks" are continuously being added to the bundle ….. while we sleep.
America is far from dead. As long as there is the breath of life in just one patriot's body, there is hope for America. It only takes one patriot (tiger) to trigger political change. It only takes one hero that has the courage to enter the free fire zone and drag those hiding in the shadows out of their hiding places and charge. How many of YOU will come out of the shadows and re-start America's engine?
Remember! Sheep don't stalk tigers. It is the other way around. Are Americans sheep, or are they tigers? We know that the vast majority of Americans are just latent tigers and all they need is the hunger for freedom to take on the sheep that cowardly hide in the halls of government. These "sheep" are easy prey when confronted by a real tiger.
Tigers of America, urban and rural, fight back. We have powerful information and tools you can use in this fight on our two websites HERE and HERE.

I have been asked by many people over the years why I am so nasty in my comments, and believe it or not, the people who respond to my comments are decidedly LIBERALS. Which goes to show they are looking for a reason to bitch or they would never BE READING read my comments. This is the reason I am so angry and nasty, where the hell are the people I am trying to stimulate? How about an atta-boy once in a while from the conservative side of our divided country! I’m nasty because I cannot understand how millions of people are sitting on their butts and not fighting back at the social AND POLITICAL changes that are dividing us. Ron’s article above should have everyone reading it jumping up and down with HOPE in their hearts, and flooding him with thanks for waking them up from their apathy coma. Let me tell you folks something here and now. There is no power on earth that could break America if the hope in your heart stimulated your tired old ass into action. If you don’t know what to do…. Ask someone involved in restoring hope in American freedom. There are thousands of great writers in this country who need your support and or offer of help. Right this very minute there should be millions of people demonstrating on the streets of America, holding signs that read, WE ARE TAKING AMERICA BACK! WE ARE EDUCATING THE MASSES ABOUT FREEDOM! KEEP YOUR GRUBBY HANDS OFF OUR INTERNET! Or one of a million other slogans, but you are still sitting on your ass waiting for someone else to take the risk, aren’t you? After all, some of your neighbors are tattle telling liberal pukes right? And they will get you in trouble. Well guess what America your dead ass is already in big trouble. STAND UP AND FIGHT BACK, IT’S YOUR COUNTRY TOO.

How do I explain to someone who believes in big government and we are “citizens of the world,” that most of our technological and health advancements, our freedom to work at a job of our choice—or not work, if we don’t want to—and even sit in the church of our choice on Sunday morning is protected by the United States Constitution?
As readers of my essays know, freedom and liberty do not come from the Constitution. They come from God. But God also gave us free will, which means that some type of government is necessary.
"If men were angels, no government would be necessary." #51*
We, as citizens of our country, state, county, city, community, give up a few of our rights and freedoms to give power to our governments.
“Government is necessary. The people must cede some of their natural rights to the government to give it some powers.” #2 *
Rather than give us freedoms, the U.S. Constitution takes the bare minimum of freedoms away from citizens, just enough to keep us safe. Before the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, people were "given" their freedoms by government rulers. That is why a "bill of rights" was such a revolutionary agreement between the ruler and citizens.
The Old World doctrine said that people were made to serve kings, not kings to serve the people. . ." #45
"Bills of rights are agreements between kings and their subjects. They reserve to citizens the rights not surrendered to the king.
"The Magna Charta is an example. Barons with swords in their hands made King John sign. Succeeding princes confirmed the Magna Charta. The Petition of Right agreed to by Charles the First is an example. So is the Declaration of Rights presented to the Prince of Orange in 1688. Parliament then made it the 'Bill of Rights'.
"The proposed Constitution is founded on the power of the people. The people's representatives will execute it. Therefore, a bill of rights doesn't belong in the Constitution. The people surrender nothing. And they keep everything. Specific reservations are not needed." #84
However, we can lose our freedoms. We only have to look at the 20th century to see how millions of people lost their freedoms, their property, and even their lives because of unrestrained government. In fact, there were more Christian martyrs in the 20th century than in all previous 1,900 years combined.
What are we to do if we notice the United States passing laws that take away our basic freedoms and liberty?
If the federal government overreaches its authority and uses its power tyrannically, the people, who created it, must go to the Constitution. They must correct the injury done to the Constitution. To determine if a law is Constitutional, we must look at whether the law is based on Constitutional powers…” #33
This is the core of the questions I had when I picked up the Federalist Papers in 1994: "To determine if a law is Constitutional, we must look at whether the law is based on Constitutional powers…” And so that other people can find the answer more quickly than I did, I put together my favorite book: The United States Constitution: Annotated with The Federalist Papers in Modern English.
* All quotes are from The Federalist Papers: Modern English Edition Two, which is available at Amazon.com and on my website.
It was bad enough when society accepted the restrictions on public preaching, but when an entire Nation accepts a restriction on GOD, who made everything that exist, and hence, has a justified claim of ownership on everything that exist, you can guess what happens next.
HE GETS MAD!
Then He withdraws His protection, and things get ugly. If you are one of the fools who rejects GOD’s existence, then you are stupid enough to think governments will protect you, and they give you a bill of right’s to prove it. Guess what, they can also take them away. SO, if you claim there is No GOD, then you have no reason to complain when the government takes back what it gave you. Be careful who you worship! No one is going to take way what GOD gave me. Will you protect your gift of freedom from GOD, or will you let the government claim it? I suggest you buy the book, and read it.

If you, and by you I mean the people of this country, do not know the limits our Founders imposed upon those who we would elect to represent us, who is to stop them from assuming powers it was intended they do not exercise, or to halt the erosion of your rights for which the government was created to protect? (Way behind the curve, by Neal Ross) Please read it before you read this article.
You will find it here.
Over the years I have read hundreds of variations of the intent of the founders, and or, the beginning of Government in America, some of which present very credible arguments that America is still owned by the Crown, but the Crown has various definitions also, and the people involved with this supposed act are long dead and their personal archives have been under the control of questionable people.
At some point long forgotten in my studies it occurred to me that all this information was useless, as the people of America are the most intellectually lazy vagabonds on planet earth. I used the word Vagabonds to euphemize Americans lack of concern for history and how it affects their future, rather than an unpleasant euphuism.
The bottom line of Americas beginning of the pursuit of freedom is quite simply immaterial, due to the complete lack of their continuing concern for it. As it stands today, the majority of Americans are so willfully obtuse and consumed by their own little world, it is impossible to define our purpose, or reason for being. Our complete lack of cohesiveness is reminiscent of a sandy beach in the wind. Every grain being pushed around by forces independent of any control. Even a second grade student should understand the necessity of pulling together in the same direction if one needs to move a heavy object, or build anything of lasting value.
Getting back to “Way behind the curve”, if one knows not the value of something, one may well discard it as unimportant, and that is Neal’s claim. American’s out of ignorance have discarded the one thing that would help them build a better world and their own well being. One must be in control of their future if one is to remain free of tyrannical control by their leaders, and the only way to gain that control is by gaining knowledge of how governments work. The civics’ class you may or may not have had in school is not an education, it is a tool used by the élite movers and shakers of the country. To understand all that you must know requires your own excessive compulsive interest and time.
You must breakaway from the standard method of indoctrination and do some independent research, because government controlled curriculums are designed to beguile the student, not inform them. Human nature being what it is, most people will do what everyone else is doing, and believe what everyone else believes, because it is easier than independent study.
Here is a good example of lack of knowledge due to public opinion rather than real knowledge. Young people reading this will automatically assume this is written for their parents, and not them, because young people have no standing among the adults in charge. Nothing could be more wrong, because the very best tool one has is their natural instinct. You should have been born with an instinct to question what you see and hear, in order to fully understand how it is relevant to the subject at hand, as each individual is somewhat different and somewhat alike.
In this way you gain experience in comprehending how power is used between people, and believe me, power is one’s only method of controlling the people who are controlling your future.
In a better world, voting would be the method of controlling your leaders, but not so in today’s world. Did you believe it was? Where was your natural instinct? That should have been enough, even if you had not been properly educated. Remember this for the rest of your life, and use it as an assistant when trying to understand why what people say, is not what they do. All human being’s are born depraved, and must acquire the self control to harmonize with society. Self control comes with diligent study of human nature. Constantly compare what others do in relation to what they say they believe or do. You will soon learn that controlling your leaders is going to be a constant part of your life that will continue for the rest of your life. BELIEVE IT!
They did not seek the roll of leadership to make your life better; they did it to make their life better. If you let them control the laws you must obey, then you must have complete control over them. Nothing else will work! If you let them, they will tell you they are going to make your life better and easier, and that is a dead giveaway, because it’s not their job to make your life easier, their job is to stay in control of those who would subvert the law, and make laws to protect that power.
EXAMPLE! The Constitution for the United States of America. Please notice I wrote (for) and not (OF), and this is the reason.
The word (for) is a preposition indicating that something is directed at somebody, done on behalf of, or to benefit somebody.
The word (of) is a preposition introducing a noun or noun phrase that provides more information about a preceding word of phrase, usually, but not always, also a noun. Do you see now how surreptitious your leaders can be?
Originally, it was FOR and later changed to OF, have you ever asked why? Would you want a Doctor for you, or would you want a Doctor of you? YOU DECIDE!
I hope by now the reader understands that living under the control of a group of depraved human beings is going to be like guarding a group of children, you cannot turn your back on them for a second.
Having no responsibility to be involved with keeping your leaders in check is a pipe dream that lines the pockets of the most despicable people on earth, and you personally will suffer for it. You may claim it is impossible, or claim you have a right to live as you please, but this again is how they screw you and your loved ones out of your freedom to do so.
If you are so naive that you think your leaders care about your life and are doing their best to advance freedom and prosperity, then you really are living in a dream world. One that never was, or will be, and the reason is, evil men seek power like a bubble seeks the surface; it is their nature.
So, how do we control the people we supposedly elect to office? That answer is, we cannot, in the present system of governance. As divided as our nation presently is due to lack of education on governments, we will never change anything until we get control of education and accept a standard curriculum that includes human nature, the results of the past and how our government was originally supposed to work. And that means years and years of research on what we can design that will be acceptable to the vast majority. Much work has already been done on that, but the majority have never read or understood it because it presumes an understanding of human nature that has been rejected by our leaders, and the liberal side of our countrymen.
The first step would be to decentralize our lives of the products we all think we need, and learn the skills of making what we really need.
Our ancestors did it out of necessity, and it is of necessity that we must re-learn those skills because we are financing our own demise by buying what we have been fooled into thinking we must have from the very people who line the pockets of our depraved leaders. Do an inventory of your home and list all the things you have spent your money on that is no longer used or needed, and decide right then to only buy what you need, to make what you really need. Example, food, do you buy food or seeds? Which is the most cost effective? There is no home in America that could not benefit by growing their own food, making their own clothes, and hundreds of other items. There is no faster way to starve the beast than to cut their volume of sales.
Yes, this is going back to the old days, but in the old days the Wal-marts of the world did not have you by the short hairs. Do you have a better idea to gain freedom from the corporate beast that finance’s your depraved leaders?
In the old days our children did not have the temptations they have today and stayed home with their parents to learn from them how to do for themselves, and how to contribute to the family harmony and prosperity. The love they had for each other, from the companionship, was the glue that held them together. Now days, parents can’t wait till their offspring are in collage so they can have some peace and quite.
Believe me I’m very aware of how outdated this all sounds to most of you but the present rate of technology growth is out pacing the number of people who have the skills to use it and convincing many of you that those people need to be eliminated. Who the hell do you think you are?
You piss and moan that we should all be considerate of each other, while planning the least expensive way of eliminating millions of other’s Is this the limit of your intelligence, or the limit of your compassion? Do unto others as you would have them do to you is still the only way to live with your conscience, that is if you still have one.
There are practical solutions to today’s problems if the people would just get out from in front of their televisions and do some honest hard work, or research on controlling government. But that would be subject to your preconceived notions of social responsibilities, and many of you do not have a clue on how people should interact, other than don’t say anything nasty about this or that perversion of human nature.
Now, I’m going to end this diatribe with a few words on your favorite subject; the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.
If you expect heaven on earth from human effort you expect what never was or will be, and if you continue eliminating GOD from public discourse, and government, you are going to build the most destructive society ever imagined by the most putrid people on earth. I’m not going to tell you what GOD is going to do, because I don’t know the mind of GOD. But, I can assure you, an all invasive evil society will be the results of a GODLESS government/society, and there will be a living hell on earth, such as you cannot imagine.
Good luck folks, you’re going to need all you can get the way things are going. Ever consider doing something about it besides complaining?
