In following video, Peter Phillips from Project Censored lays out exactly how the richest one-thousandth of 1% maintain iron control over the global economy and all so-called democratic governments. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ubmd3zuVjek
He cites a study Project Censored published in their Top 25 Censored Stories of 2012-2013edition of the world’s most “integrated”* corporations and those with the largest financial asset concentration.
Unsurprisingly, there’s considerable overlap between the two groups.
The 161 board members of the top 13 companies control $28 trillion of wealth. They also help the 1% hide another $30 trillion offshore so it can’t be taxed.
They’re 88% white (and nearly all male) and 63% come from the US or Europe.
They work with secret (and not so secret) groups, such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Builderberg Group, the Bohemian Grove, the World Economic Forum, the G7, the G20, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to ensure that the domestic and foreign policy of all western governments benefits themselves and the capitalist investors they represent.
They also ensure that the national security state, busy killing people in 130 countries, acts in the exclusive interest of transnational capital. The fascist coup they engineered in Ukraine is only the most recent example.
They regularly engage in illegal conspiracies but are always too big and powerful to jail.
Here are the top 13 companies identified in the study:
1 BlackRock US $3,560 trillion
2 UBS Switzerland $2,280 trillion
3 Allianz Germany $2,213 trillion
4 Vanguard Group US $2,080 trillion
5 State Street Global Advisors (SSgA) US $1,908
6 PIMCO (Pacific Investment Management Company) US $1,820 trillion
7 Fidelity Investments US $1,576 trillion
8 AXA Group France $1,393 trillion
9 JPMorgan Asset Management US $1,347 trillion
10 Credit Suisse Switzerland $1,279 trillion
11 BNY Mellon Asset Management US $1,299 trillion
12 HSBC UK $1,230 trillion
13 Deutsche Bank Germany $1,227 trillion
*The researchers use the term “integrated” to describe financial corporations with major holdings in key non-financial sectors (i.e. energy, defense and mass media).

By David Robinson Puerto Rico’s nonvoting congressional delegate today introduced legislation (http://tinyurl.com/pyd5kdt) in the U.S. House of Representatives that would allow Puerto Rico’s government-owned corporations to file for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection, the same type of municipal bankruptcy protection Detroit sought last year. The move comes a month after the commonwealth passed the Puerto Rico Public Corporation Debt Enforcement and Recovery Act (http://tinyurl.com/nwwe8ef), which allows Puerto Rico’s public corporations to restructure their debts. This Bill will also legally allow the seizure of all America’s Puerto Rican owned bank accounts, since the ESTATE trusts set up in our all capitalized legal NAMES are incorporated as Puerto Rican trusts. If Puerto Rico is allowed to go bankrupt, the trusts will be “subsumed” into the bankruptcy as assets of Puerto Rico, exactly as they were improperly entangled in the bankruptcy proceedings of the United States of America, Inc. Since all of the ESTATE trusts of the 14th Amendment citizens of the corporate United States have been removed to Puerto Rico to function under the maritime admiralty jurisdiction of Puerto Rico, the impending bankruptcy of Puerto Rican corporations would constitute the bankruptcy of “the United States of America (minor)”, i.e., the federal zone United States — leaving remaining, “the United States of America (major)” to operate under the common law of the land instead of the admiralty law of the sea. It is therefore IMPERATIVE that every American rise up and object to having their ESTATES seized by any phony baloney so-called “Bankruptcy Trustees”. These banking cartels have got to be brought down and the members of the US CONGRESS with them as well. All it takes is 390 million Americans to know three simple things — 1. That THING in Washington, DC. is a corporation hired to provide governmental services. 2. It is not “our” lawful government and hasn’t operated as such in a long, long time. 3. This private, mostly foreign owned, for-profit entity has attempted to breach our national trust and plunder our land, our resources and our private estates. This is being done by members of the American and British Bar Associations operating criminal syndicates on our shores, employing commercial mercenary armies against us, using money and credit they have misappropriated from us. The final thing Americans need to know is that they are in danger of losing their bank and retirement accounts, their stocks and bonds, their homes, their jobs, their security, their food sources, their land, and their standard of living if they don’t stand up and clean house NOW!!!

August 2nd, 2014 by olddog
Over a year ago I published an essay entitled ‘The Linchpin Lie: How Global Collapse Will Be Sold To The Masses’. This essay addressed efforts by the ever malicious Rand Corporation to create a false narrative surrounding the possibility of global collapse. Linchpin Theory, as it was named by it’s originator and Rand Corp. employee, John Casti, is I believe the very future of propaganda.
Every engineered crisis needs a clever cover story, and in Linchpin Theory, we are told that all human catastrophe is a mere natural product of the “over complexity” within various systems. Yes, there is no accounting of false flag geopolitics or elitist conspiracy, no acknowledgment of deliberately initiated chaos; such things do not exist in the world of “linchpins”. Rather, the Rand Corporation would have us believe that the world is a massive game of Jenga, and the supporting pieces just remove themselves from the teetering structure by magical and coincidental causality.
Today, the linchpin lie is now being carefully inserted into the mainstream narrative. I can’t say I was shocked to hear Alan Greenspan use its basic premise when he recently stated that:
I have come to the conclusion that bubbles…are a function of human nature. We don’t have enough observations, but my tentative hypothesis to what we’re dealing with is that both a necessary and sufficient condition for the emergence of a bubble is a protracted period of stable economic activity at low inflation. So it is a very difficult policy problem. I do believe that central banks that believe they can quell bubbles are living in a state of unrealism.
It is important that we understand what Greenspan is actually doing here. The former Fed chairman is asserting that economic bubbles like the derivatives bubble of 2008 are a “natural function”, like the seasons, and are out of the control of central bankers. The truth is that central bankers have never tried to “quell” economic bubbles, they have been deliberately creating them in order to position the global economy into a crisis which they can then exploit. Greenspan is not only diverting blame for all the past and future economic crashes central banks have engineered, he is also setting the propaganda stage for a great change in the dynamic of the central banking concept – what the IMF’s Christine Lagarde calls the “global economic reset”.
The current central banking structure gives the illusion of separation and sovereignty. Most people who have not researched the nature of the international banking cartel believe that the Federal Reserve, for instance, is a separate national entity from the Central Bank of Russia, or the Central Bank of China. They believe that these institutions act of their own accord rather than in concert with each other. The reality is, there is no Federal Reserve. There is no Central Bank of Russia. There are no separate entities. There are no Western banks and there are no BRICS. All of these banking edifices are merely front organizations for global financiers, as Council on Foreign Relations insider (and friend to the Rockefellers) Carroll Quigley made clear in his book, Tragedy And Hope:
It must not be felt that the heads of the world’s chief central banks were themselves substantive powers in world finance. They were not. Rather they were the technicians and agents of the dominant investment bankers of their own countries, who had raised them up, and who were perfectly capable of throwing them down. The substantive financial powers of the world were in the hands of these investment bankers who remained largely behind the scenes in their own unincorporated private banks. These formed a system of international cooperation and national dominance which was more private, more powerful, and more secret than that of their agents in the central banks.
A “global economic reset”, I suspect, will consist of a grand shift away from covert cooperation between central banks to an OPENLY centralized one world banking system, predicated on the concepts put forward by the IMF and led by the Bank for International Settlements, which has always been behind the scenes handing down commandments to the seemingly separate central banks of nations.
In order for this “reset” to be achieved, however, the establishment needs a historically monumental distraction. A distraction so confounding and terrifying that by the time the public has a chance to examine the situation rationally, the elites have already tightened the noose.
I have been warning ever since the beginning of the derivatives/debt collapse of 2007/2008 that the international financiers and globalists who created the artificially low interest rates and fiat lending bonanza would one day be required to fashion a considerably dangerous event in order to trigger the final collapse of the dollar based monetary system and replace it with a new currency (or basket of currencies), along with a new centralized financial authority.
This distracting event would have to rely on three very important strategies in order to succeed -
1) The use of what I call the “scattershot effect”; a swarm of smaller crises growing exponentially until it blurs together to create one dynamic calamity.
2) The use of multiple false paradigms in order to confuse the masses and pit them against one another in an absurd fight over fake and meaningless causes.
3) The use of deceptive benevolence on the part of the financial elite as they tap dance in to act as global “mediators”, ready to save the public from itself.
The end result would be a new brand of “world war” rather unique to history.
When most people imagine WWIII, they immediately envision images of nuclear bombs and mushroom clouds; however, I believe that when world war erupts, it may progress far differently from our cinematic assumptions. Regional conflicts are very likely, there is no doubt, but if one places himself in the shoes of the elites, one realizes that all out mechanized nuclear Armageddon is not really necessary to achieve the desired result of global governance.
Economic warfare alone could be extremely effective in initiating full spectrum fiscal implosion as well as mass starvation, mass panic, and mass desperation. All the signs lead me to believe that financial combat and 4th generation warfare will be used in the place of large armies and missiles.
The Scattershot Effect
Consider the sheer scope and number of crisis situations that have reached explosive proportions just in the past six months.
Syria continues to destabilize due to ISIS insurgents supported by the U.S., Saudi Arabia, and Israel; it is a horrifying storm which is now bleeding into other nations such as Iraq.
Iraq is on the verge of complete disintegration as the same western organized ISIS moves towards the outskirts of Baghdad.
Libya has imploded, with the American embassy evacuated, as well as the French and British, as various militias battle for supremacy.
The Ukraine crisis is nearing mutation into another beast entirely after the attack on Malaysian flight MH17. In just the past week, the EU has instituted sanctions against Russia, fighting has become even more fierce around Donetsk, Russia has been accused of firing artillery into Ukraine, and the U.S. now claims that Russia has violated the terms of the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces treaty.
In the meantime, the Federal Reserve continues to taper QE3 while ignoring the unprecedented equities bubble they have birthed in the stock market, as well as refusing to answer the question as to who will actually buy U.S. Treasury debt if they do not? Our secret friend from Belgium? And what if this secret friend is, as I suspect, actually the IMF/BIS global loan shark duo? What then? Do we become yet another third world African-style debtor owing our very infrastructure to a financial bureaucracy on the other side of the world?
And what about the Baltic Dry Index, one of the few measures of global shipping demand that cannot be manipulated by outside money interests? Well, the BDI is back down to historic lows, falling 65% since January, signaling that the so-called “economic recovery” is not at all what it is cracked up to be.
Add to this the deluge of illegal immigration on the southern border, aided by the Obama Administration, as well as possible presidential impeachment and lawsuit proceedings, and you have a recipe for total chaos of the fiscal variety.
If the first six to seven months of 2014 have been this frenetic, how bad will the next six months be?
We are all aware of the prevalence of the false Left/Right paradigm in American politics. Hopefully most people in the Liberty Movement understand, for example, that any impeachment or lawsuit proceedings against Barack Obama will be nothing more than a crafted circus designed to accomplish nothing – a con game to placate conservatives with useless top-down solutions while the country burns around their ears.
There are other false paradigms that are not so clear to some, though…
The false Israel/Hamas paradigm has certainly duped a particular subsection of Americans and even a few patriots, even though it is historical fact that the creation of Hamas itself was funded and supported by the Israeli government. Why do Israeli politicians put money and arms at the disposal of Muslim extremist groups like Hamas and ISIS, only to enter into brutal conflict with them later? Could it be that the Israeli government does not have the best interests of the Israeli people at heart? Could it be that Israel is being used by internationalists as a catalyst for chaos? It is vital that we question the intentions behind such contrary actions in the Middle East.
Why has the U.S. government (Democrats and Republicans), Saudi Arabia, and Israel put support behind the ISIS caliphate in Iraq after spending decades of time, billions in resources, and thousands of lives, attempting to overrun and dominate the region? Why are these governments creating enemies that will later try to harm us?
It is all about false paradigms; dividing the masses into numerous conflicting sides and pitting them against each other when they should be fighting against the elites.
The false East/West paradigm is perhaps the most dangerous lie facing free men today. It is a lie that may very well define our generation if not our century. I have outlined in multiple articles the substantial evidence that proves beyond a doubt that Russia and China are members of the globalist agenda, and that the tensions between our two hemispheres are completely fabricated.
The latest announcement of a BRICS bank to rival the IMF is yet another scheme to perpetuate the illusion that the elites of these nations are at odds. In fact, the BRICS conference mission statement makes it clear that developing nations have no intention of breaking from the IMF (and certainly not the BIS). Instead, the BRICS bank is meant to provide “leverage” to “force” the IMF to become more inclusive, and hand over more power and participation. Vladimir Putin had this to say at the latest summit:
In the BRICS case we see a whole set of coinciding strategic interests. First of all, this is the common intention to reform the international monetary and financial system. In the present form it is unjust to the BRICS countries and to new economies in general. We should take a more active part in the IMF and the World Bank’s decision-making system. The international monetary system itself depends a lot on the US dollar, or, to be precise, on the monetary and financial policy of the US authorities. The BRICS countries want to change this.
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff insisted that the BRICS were not seeking to distance themselves from the Washington-based International Monetary Fund:
On the contrary, we wish to democratize it and make it as representative as possible…
Putin and the BRICS commonly rail against the “unipolar” financial system revolving around the U.S. dollar, but in the end they are only controlled opposition, and their solution is to place even more power into the hands of the IMF (a supposedly U.S. government controlled institution), creating a truly unipolar world order. If the U.S. loses its IMF veto status this year due to lack of allocated funds, and the BRICS dump the dollar as world reserve, this may very well happen.
As sanctions between Russia and the U.S. snowball, a perfect rationalization for a dollar decoupling will be created that very few people would have believed possible only a few years ago. It is only a matter of time before fiscal warfare escalates to destructive levels. Russia will inevitably cut off gas exports to the EU, and the BRICS will inevitably drop the U.S. dollar as a world reserve standard.
The U.S. relationship to the EU is also currently being presented as dubious, and this is not by accident. Failing relations between America and Germany are yet more theater for the masses to chew on. Western allies have been spying on each other for decades, but somehow the exposure of CIA activities in Germany is shocking news? The NY Fed suddenly attacks Deutsche Bank, seeking expanded monitoring and regulation? Germany’s business interests are highly damaged by U.S. sanctions against Russia? It would seem as though someone is trying to create an artificial divide between elements of the EU and the U.S.
I believe that the narrative is being prepared for a faked financial breakup between the U.S. and many of its former allies, isolating the U.S., and destroying the dollar, but to what end? To answer that question, we must ask WHO ultimately benefits from these actions?
The Rise Of The Hero Bankers
In June of last year, the Bank for International Settlements, the central bank of central banks whose history began with the financial support of the Third Reich, released a statement warning that “easy money” from central banks was creating a dangerous bubble in stock markets around the world.
The IMF, too, has been pushing warnings of stock bubble collapse into the mainstream.
In June of this year, the BIS, a normally obscure and secretive organization, released another statement pronouncing that government had been led into a “false sense of security” by easy monetary policy and low interest rates, making the world economy perpetually unstable.
For an organization so covert and occult, the BIS sure has become rather candid lately. Frankly, I agree with everything they have said. However, I do not agree with the hypocrisy of the BIS, which dominates the decisions of all of its member banks, publicly criticizing policies which it most likely scripted itself. Why would the BIS suddenly denounce fiscal methods it used to promote? Because the BIS is setting itself up as the great prognosticator of a collapse that IT HELPED ENGINEER.
After the great financial war has subsided, and the people are suitably poverty stricken and desperate, it will be institutions like the BIS and IMF that swoop in to “save the day”. Their offer will be to consolidate economic control into the hands of an elite group of bankers “not affiliated” with any particular nation state, thereby insulating them from “political concerns”. The argument will be that national sovereignty is a bane on the back of humanity. They will claim that the catastrophe will continue until we “simplify” and streamline our economic and political systems. They will present themselves as the heroes of the age; the ones who predicted the crisis would occur, and the ones who had a solution ready to save the day (after sufficient death and destruction, of course).
As long as people remain obsessed with false paradigms and faux enemies, the establishment’s goal of complete centralized dominance will be predictably attainable.
If we change our focus to the internationalists as the true danger instead of playing their game by their rules, then things will become far more interesting…

ELIMINATE THE ELITE BANKERS BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.
July 31st, 2014 by olddog
By Prof. John McMurtry and Kourosh Ziabari
Global Research, July 29, 2014
A world-renowned Canadian philosopher argues that the United States holds the world record of illegal killings of unarmed civilians and extrajudicial detention and torturing of prisoners who are detained without trial.
Prof. John McMurtry says that the U.S. government is a gigantic mass-murdering machine which earns profit through waging wars, and is never held accountable over its unspeakable war crimes and crimes against humanity. He also believes that the U.S. has become a police state, which treats its citizens in the most derogatory manner.
“I have travelled alone with only backpack possession through the world, and have found no state in which police forces are more habituated to violent bullying, more likely to draw a gun, more discriminatory against the dispossessed, and more arbitrarily vicious in normal behavior, said McMurtry. “The US now leads the globe in an underlying civil war of the rich against the poor.”
“The US can … detain, kidnap and imprison without trial or indictment any US citizen or other citizen anywhere by designating them enemies to the US, Prof. John McMurtry noted in an exclusive interview with Fars News Agency.
According to the Canadian intellectual, the United States statesmen have long supported dictatorial and tyrannical regimes and even funded and armed the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler in the period between 1939 and 1945.
John McMurtry is a Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Guelph, Canada. In 2001, Prof. McMurtry was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada for his outstanding contributions to the study of humanities and social sciences. His latest major works are his 15-year study, The Cancer Stage of Capitalism: From Crisis to Cure and three monumental volumes commissioned by UNESCO for its Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems entitled Philosophy and World Problems. McMurtry’s articles and writings regularly appear on different newspapers and online magazines across the world.
Prof. McMurtry took part in an in-depth interview with FNA and responded to some questions regarding the U.S. project of the War on Terror, its military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan and the September 11, 2001 attacks. The following is the text of the interview.
Q: Prof. McMurtry: it was following the 9/11 attacks that the United States launched its project of War on Terror. The venture has so far cost the lives of thousands of innocent, unarmed civilians across the world, including in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya; however, the civilian cost of the Global War on Terror has been mostly ignored by the mainstream media and the politicians in the West. Why do you think they’ve overlooked the enormous rate of civilian casualties resulting from an endeavor which was purportedly aimed at exporting democracy and liberal values to the world?
A: In the United States so-called War on Terror, by far the greatest and most systematic terrorization of civilians is in fact perpetrated by the US state itself. Unarmed citizens are murdered across the world as collateral damage, illegal enemy combatants’or other license of impunity. The US state conceives itself as above international law along with ally Israel, but this reality is taboo to report and so too all the killing and terrorization of civilians. One can truly say that the historical record demonstrates the US is provably guilty of continual lawless mass murder of civilians across the world, but the truth is unthinkable within the ruling ideological regime. Consider for example, the US-led deadly civil wars and coup d’états in Venezuela and Ukraine as well as Libya and Syria. They mass terrorize and destroy societies into defenseless dependency so that their resources, lands and markets are free for transnational corporate exploitation. Yet the meaning is un-decoded. Ignorance is built into the syntax of acceptable thought.
Q: Many immigrants who seek refuge in United States from the four corners of the globe in search of a better and more prosperous life think of America as an absolutely free, democratic and open society with abundant opportunities for economic and social progress. However, you’ve argued, as many scholars did, that the United States is a police state. Would you please elaborate more on that? Do you believe that these immigrants and asylum-seekers are not told the whole truth about the United States or are somehow deceived?
A: Deception allies with ignorance. I define a police state as a society in which there is unlimited state power of armed force freely discharged without citizen right to stop it. While the men at the top always proclaim their devotion to the public good, an endless litany of crimes against human life is permitted by legally terrorist offices, central directives, and bureaucratic channels. Thus in “free and democratic America”, more citizens are caged than any country in the world, and over 80% have perpetrated no violence against [any] person. While the US accuses others of inhuman persecution and despotism, it holds the world records for caging non-violent people, for violent killings of civilians, for spy surveillance of everyone, and for mass murders of innocent people across international borders. Even kicking the tire of a VIP vehicle may be prosecuted as an act of “terrorism”. I have travelled alone with only backpack possession through the world, and have found no state in which police forces are more habituated to violent bullying, more likely to draw a gun, more discriminatory against the dispossessed, and more arbitrarily vicious in normal behavior. The US now leads the globe in an underlying civil war of the rich against the poor.
Q: What’s your viewpoint on the recent laws and legislations that have stipulated limitations on the civil liberties of the U.S. citizens, including the PATRIOT Act of 2001, which was widely criticized and protested at? Its seen as a discriminatory measure that violates the privacy of the American citizens and the foreign nationals traveling in the States. Isn’t it so?
A: The repression of civil rights by the US goes far deeper than violation of citizen privacy to which the media confine themselves. The Patriot Act together with other laws like the Military Commissions Act, the Defense Authorization Act, the Homeland Security Act and the Protect America Act, mutating to the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, form a systematic curtailment of civil rights and freedoms. Spying on everyone across borders is the accompanying apparatus of the National Security Agency which has been recently exposed in its totalitarian global snooping and dirty tricks. Department analyst Daniel Ellsberg of the Pentagon Papers summarizes the post-9/11 situation in the US as a coup … a steady assault on every fundamental of our Constitution for executive government to rule by decree. What makes these new laws and licenses tyrannical is their selective suspension of established constitutional rights to habeas corpus, the right of the accused to see evidence against him/her, the right to ones chosen legal defense, the right to trial without indefinite detention, and other rights of due process of law including to free speech and organization that can be construed as supporting illegal enemies. As to who these illegal enemies are, this is determined by the US president without legal criterion, proving evidence or verification required. The US can thus detain, kidnap and imprison without trial or indictment any US citizen or other citizen anywhere by designating them enemies to the US. This arbitrary power has most infamously instituted US presidential right to kill individuals and those around them at will by robot killer drones all crimes against humanity and war crimes under international law, but again taboo to report in the mass media or question in international security meetings themselves.
Q: The U.S. government has traditionally supported the oppressive regimes that are widely considered as dictatorial and tyrannical. Some examples include the successive U.S. governments’ support for the regimes in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and Israel. Isn’t such an approach contrary to the democratic principles which the U.S. Constitution is said to be oriented on?
A: Certainly the US has long supported dictatorial and tyrannical regimes. In fact US corporations and banks led the funding and arming of Hitler and the Nazis even during the 1939-45 War, and official US support of murderous dictatorships afterwards has been normalized since the CIA’s foundation in 1947. In the years since 9/11, US government has covertly directed funding and arming of the most destructive armed forces including jihadists, not only in the nations you mention, but in Syria and before that Libya, Iraq, Somalia, and Afghanistan and many much less known places like Mali. Ukraine has been similarly launched into civil war and escalated oppression by US-led destabilization, covert Special Forces, and local fascists.
Yet the US Constitution itself has no clear resource to prevent such international crimes, the founding US fathers themselves being mainly rich slave owners and leaders of the genocidal Western expansion against first peoples which England had forbidden in 1763. In fact, despite some stirring phrases without binding force, the ultimate concern of the US Constitution is the protection of private property and wealth at the top against the masses and democratic reversal. The ultimately governing value is profitable and unfettered private commerce, the commerce clause being the only way found to enforce the civil rights of Blacks. The opening slogans of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness seem inspiring except that happiness cannot be pursued, life needs do not ever enter into consideration, and liberty without the means to exercise it is nonsense.
Bear in mind that Supreme Court decisions have further granted the constitutional freedom of private money hoards to control politicians, public speech and elections themselves. Transnational corporations which are the global vehicles of the worlds ruling money sequences have at the same time multiplying powers with no obligations, while other societies rights have been effectively erased by international trade treaties which recognize only corporate rights and strip societies of their economic sovereignty and public resources. Corporate rights to dominate public speech and elections have been twisted out of even the Constitutions Fifth Amendment protecting the civil rights of ex-slaves. In short, a near total expropriation of rights by Big Money has shown how anti-democratic the US Constitution has been made. I think that only the rule of life-protective law with the force of international law can regulate this global money-power dictatorship back into coherence with life support requirements now violated at every level, with or without a revolutionary uprising.
Q: Over the course of 20th century, the United States has been involved in several covert foreign regime change actions, and as the Foreign Policy magazine notes, it has toppled seven governments in the last 100 years through masterminding and engineering coups across the world, including the 1953 coup d’état against the popular government of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh, or the 1973 coup in Chile that brought down the government of President Salvador Allende. Is such sponsorship of coups and regime change actions the characteristic feature of a democratic, peace-loving government?
A: There has been almost no coup or government overthrow since 1945 not led by the US. The examples you give of Mosaddegh and Allende are sea-changes of history in which elected, socially responsible and peaceful governments led by men of the very highest quality have been criminally usurped. This perpetual and increasing destabilization of other states and societies along with other gravely degenerate trends are systematically tracked in my 15-year study The Cancer Stage of Capitalism/ from crisis to cure. In the US itself, the three powers of supreme legislature, executive and court are now all controlled by the same money party selecting for the same full-spectrum predation of life and life support systems everywhere to multiply themselves. Yet still the long record of the US state and its oligarch allies destroying societies across the world is unspeakable in the mass media because they themselves are financed and advertised in by the same transnational corporations that demand the resources and territories of societies everywhere. The carcinogenic global causal mechanism is ever more evident and catastrophic, but not recognized.
Q: More than a decade after the 9/11 attacks, there are still several unanswered questions about the tragic event, including the origins and motives of the perpetrator, the role of foreign intelligence organizations in masterminding the attacks and the behind-the-scenes benefits of the attacks for the U.S. military-industrial complex. As you note in your writings, it was not Osama bin Laden who spearheaded the 9/11 attacks. Who is the real culprit? Did the 9/11 attacks play into the hands of the Bush administration to set in motion its lethal project of War on Terror and start invading different countries?
A: My recent monograph on the Internet, The Moral Decoding of 9-11: Beyond the U.S. Criminal State is a definitive answer to these questions. The turning-point event is laid bare step by step as a mass-murderous construction whose scenario is anticipated and contrived by US geostrategic planners with the official investigation completely concealing the basic fact that fireproofed steel infrastructures collapsed at the speed of gravity into their own footprints against the laws of physics. Moreover the first question of forensic justice cui bono, who benefits? is ruled out from the start, although every subsequent policy, decision and new power served the interests of the Bush Jr. regime, and the US military-oil complex against the welfare of the American public and the world, especially Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran.
Unfortunately conspiracy theories miss the inner logic of the strategic event and the system disorder driving it. The official conspiracy theory is absurd, but every disbeliever in it is pilloried as a conspiracy theorist – the reverse projection which is the signature operation of US propaganda. Always blame others for what the US does as the reason for attacking them. One might laugh at the same old propaganda psy-op and fabrications trotted out endlessly, but the terrible reality is the 9/11 construction has had effectively sabotaged international progress in solving the worlds gravest problems. It has dismantled the global peace movement that was reaching an historical peak in 2001 to stop US-led militarism after the Cold War. It has successfully suppressed world-wide uprisings against a US-led global corporate dictatorship despised and opposed by ever more citizens across America, Europe and the world. It has even formed the draconian laws and police practices needed to squash the world-wide environmental movement across the world at same time. 9/11 has, in short, vastly empowered the corporate money system devouring human and planetary life by falsifying opponents as terrorists. But who joins the dots of the Great Repression?
Q: Since its inception 66 years ago, CIA has been involved in numerous covert sabotage, anti-sabotage, assassinations, propaganda, destruction and subversion plans against other countries, and during the course of all these covert actions, it has violated different internationally recognized treaties and regulations as well as the sovereignty and territorial integrity of these nations. Are these actions and gambits legal or illegal? If they are illegal, then why doesn’t any international organization investigate the crimes and hold the U.S. government accountable?
A: Yes this is a turning-point issue of the world. But the US record as a rogue state is unspeakable in the mass media because they are financed and advertised in by the same transnational corporations that demand the resources and territories of the world by threat of trade-investment embargo and the point of the gun of US and NATO forces. This is what the lawless but unnamed US reign of terror achieves – not only by war crimes and crimes against humanity, but by economic ruin for any society resisting transnational trade treaties and demands which recognize only foreign corporate rights to profit. If the underlying causal mechanism is taboo to recognize, unaccountability is the result. Blame is instead diverted to US-designated enemies like Iran or Russia or Venezuela and the society-destroying disorder rampages on.
In fact there are many life-protective international laws to hold the US accountable to, but every one of them is repudiated by the US so as not to apply to itself ; laws and conventions against nuclear weapons, biological weapons, chemical weapons, landmines, small arms, international ballistic missiles, torture, racism, sexism, child abuse, arbitrary seizure and imprisonment, crimes against humanity and war crimes, military weather distortions, biodiversity loss, and international climate destabilization. Yet this record remains taboo to track or publish even as the US demonizes others for defying the laws and norms of the international community”.
The US and ally Israel thus violate the laws against armed aggression, occupation and crimes against humanity at will, but who even knows or cites the laws? For example, when the US was about to perpetrate the supreme crime of invasion against Iraq in 2003 with no lawful grounds, no-one raised the issue at the Security Council, including the Iraqi diplomat there. As one who later debated on Canadian public television a leading US geostrategic analyst three days before the criminal bombing of Baghdad began, my statement that he was advocating war crime and should be arrested for doing so was deleted from the live broadcast. The cornerstone of international law is thus silenced while the media go on calling opponents “unpatriotic or terrorists as in Nazi Germany. If law-abiding states do not stand and join for the rule of international life-protective law, there seems no end.

By John W. Whitehead
“The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern.”—C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters
Whether it’s the working mother arrested for letting her 9-year-old play unsupervised at a playground, the teenager forced to have his genitals photographed by police, the underage burglar sentenced to 23 years for shooting a retired police dog, or the 43-year-old man who died of a heart attack after being put in a chokehold by NYPD officers allegedly over the sale of untaxed cigarettes, the theater of the absurd that passes for life in the American police state grows more tragic and incomprehensible by the day.
Debra Harrell, a 46-year-old South Carolina working mother, was arrested, charged with abandonment and had her child placed in state custody after allowing the 9-year-old to spend unsupervised time at a neighborhood playground while the mom worked a shift at McDonald’s. Mind you, the child asked to play outside, was given a cell phone in case she needed to reach someone, and the park—a stone’s throw from the mom’s place of work—was overrun with kids enjoying its swings, splash pad, and shade.
A Connecticut mother was charged with leaving her 11-year-old daughter in the car unsupervised while she ran inside a store—despite the fact that the child asked to stay in the car and was not overheated or in distress. A few states away, a New Jersey man was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of his children after leaving them in a car parked in a police station parking lot, windows rolled down, while he ran inside to pay a ticket.
A Virginia teenager was charged with violating the state’s sexting law after exchanging sexually provocative videos with his girlfriend. Instead of insisting that the matter be dealt with as a matter of parental concern, police charged the boy with manufacturing and distributing child pornography and issued a search warrant to “medically induce an erection” in the 17-year-old boy in order to photograph his erect penis and compare it to the images sent in the sexting exchange. The police had already taken an initial photograph of the boy’s penis against his will, upon his arrest.
In Georgia, a toddler had his face severely burned when a flash bang grenade, launched by a SWAT team during the course of a no-knock warrant, landed in his portable crib, detonating on his pillow. Also in Georgia, a police officer shot and killed a 17-year-old boy who answered the door, reportedly with a Nintendo WiFi controller in his hands. The cop claimed the teenager pointed a gun at her, thereby justifying the use of deadly force. Then there was the incident wherein a police officer, responding to a complaint that some children were “chopping off tree limbs” creating “tripping hazards,” pulled a gun on a group of 11-year-old boys who were playing in a wooded area, attempting to build a tree fort.
While the growing phenomenon of cops shooting family pets only adds to the insanity (it is estimated that a family pet is killed by law enforcement every 98 minutes in America), it’s worse for those who dare to shoot a police dog. Ivins Rosier was 16 when he broke into the home of a Florida highway patrol officer and shot (although he didn’t kill) the man’s retired police dog. For his crime, the teenager was sentenced to 23 years in prison, all the while police officers who shoot family pets are rarely reprimanded.
Meanwhile if you’re one of those hoping to live off the grid, independent of city resources, you might want to think again. Florida resident Robin Speronis was threatened with eviction for living without utilities. Speronis was accused of violating the International Property Maintenance Code by relying on rain water instead of the city water system and solar panels instead of the electric grid.
Now we can shrug these incidents off as isolated injustices happening to “other” people. We can rationalize them away by suggesting that these people “must” have done something to warrant such treatment. Or we can acknowledge that this slide into totalitarianism—helped along by over-criminalization, government surveillance, militarized police, neighbors turning in neighbors, privatized prisons, and forced labor camps, to name just a few similarities—is tracking very closely with what we saw happening in Germany in the years leading up to Hitler’s rise to power.
When all is said and done, what these incidents reflect is a society that has become so bureaucratic, so legalistic, so politically correct, so militaristic, so locked down, so self righteous, and so willing to march in lockstep with the corporate-minded police state that any deviations from the norm—especially those that offend the sensibilities of the “government-knows-best” nanny state or challenge the powers that be—become grist for prosecution, persecution and endless tribulations for the poor souls who are caught in the crosshairs.
Then there are the incidents, less colorful perhaps but no less offensive to the sensibilities of any freedom-loving individual, which should arouse outrage among the populace but often slip under the radar of a sleeping nation.
For instance, not only is the NSA spying on and collecting the content of your communications, but it’s also going to extreme lengths to label as “extremists” anyone who attempts to protect their emails from the government’s prying eyes. Adding insult to injury, those same government employees and contractors spying on Americans’ private electronic communications are also ogling their private photos. Recent revelations indicate that NSA employees routinely pass around intercepted nude photos, considered a “fringe benefit” of surveillance positions.
A trove of leaked documents reveals the government’s unmitigated gall in labeling Americans as terrorists for little more than being suspected of committing “any act that is ‘dangerous’ to property and intended to influence government policy through intimidation.” As The Intercept reports: “This combination—a broad definition of what constitutes terrorism and a low threshold for designating someone a terrorist—opens the way to ensnaring innocent people in secret government dragnets.” All the while, the TSA, despite the billions of dollars we spend on the agency annually and the liberties to which its agents subject travelers, has yet to catch a single terrorist.
No less disconcerting are the rash of incidents in which undercover government agents encourage individuals to commit crimes they might not have engaged in otherwise. This “make work” entrapment scheme runs the gamut from terrorism to drugs. In fact, a recent report released by Human Rights Watch reveals that “nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the ‘direct involvement’ of government agents or informants.”
Most outrageous of all are the asset forfeiture laws that empower law enforcement to rake in huge sums of money by confiscating cash, cars, and even homes based on little more than a suspicion of wrongdoing. In this way, Americans who haven’t been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of wrongdoing, are literally being subjected to highway robbery by government agents offering profit-driven, cash-for-freedom deals.
So who or what is to blame for this bureaucratic nightmare delivered by way of the police state? Is it the White House? Is it Congress? Is it the Department of Homeland Security, with its mobster mindset? Is it some shadowy, power-hungry entity operating off a nefarious plan?
Or is it, as Holocaust survivor Hannah Arendt suggests, the sheepish masses who mindlessly march in lockstep with the government’s dictates—expressing no outrage, demanding no reform, and issuing no challenge to the status quo—who are to blame for the prison walls being erected around us? The author of The Origins of Totalitarianism, Arendt warned that “the greatest evil perpetrated is the evil committed by nobodies, that is, by human beings who refuse to be persons.”
This is where democracy falls to ruin, and bureaucracy and tyranny prevail.
As I make clear in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, we have only ourselves to blame for this bureaucratic hell that has grown up around us. Too many of us willingly, knowingly and deliberately comprise what Arendt refers to as “cogs in the mass-murder machine.”
These cogs are none other than those of us who have turned a blind eye to the government corruption, or shrugged dismissively at the ongoing injustices, or tuned out the mayhem in favor of entertainment distractions. Just as guilty are those who have traded in their freedoms for a phantom promise of security, not to mention those who feed the machine unquestioningly with their tax dollars and partisan politics.
And then there are those who work for the government, federal, state, local or contractor. These government employees—the soldiers, the cops, the technicians, the social workers, etc.—are neither evil nor sadistic. They’re simply minions being paid to do a job, whether that job is to arrest you, spy on you, investigate you, crash through your door, etc. However, we would do well to remember that those who worked at the concentration camps and ferried the victims to the gas chambers were also just “doing their jobs.”
Then again, if we must blame anyone, blame the faceless, nameless, bureaucratic government machine—which having been erected and set into motion is nearly impossible to shut down—for the relentless erosion of our freedoms through a million laws, statutes, and prohibitions.
If there is any glimmer of hope to be found, it will be at the local level, but we cannot wait for things to get completely out of control. If you wait to act until the SWAT team is crashing through your door, until your name is placed on a terror watch list, until you are reported for such outlawed activities as collecting rainwater or letting your children play outside unsupervised, then it will be too late.
Obedience is the precondition to totalitarianism, and the precondition to obedience is fear. Regimes of the past and present understand this. “The very first essential for success,” Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf, “is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence.” Is this not what we are seeing now with the SWAT teams and the security checkpoints and the endless wars?
This much I know: we are not faceless numbers. We are not cogs in the machine. We are not slaves. We are people, and free people at that. As the Founders understood, our freedoms do not flow from the government. They were not given to us, to be taken away at the will of the State; they are inherently ours. In the same way, the government’s appointed purpose is not to threaten or undermine our freedoms, but to safeguard them.
Until we can get back to this way of thinking, until we can remind Americans what it really means to be a free American, and learn to stand our ground in the face of threats to those freedoms, and encourage our fellow citizens to stop being cogs in the machine, we will continue as slaves in thrall to the bureaucratic police state.

What would happen if Americans learned that Barack Obama is not just an individual with a history of radical, anti-American associations, but an illegal President and an unindicted felon?
What would happen if Americans learned that the US government, including all members of Congress, and leading figures in American media knew it and deliberately hid the truth from us?
If such a scenario were true, the political system and the media, as we now know it, would collapse, most politicians and journalists would lose their jobs and many would go to jail.
Who in government and the media have the greatest incentive to remain silent and run out the clock on Barack Obama?
Obama and his inner circle know that there is a limit to the opposition’s ability to investigate governmental corruption without exposing their own possible complicity.
Does it explain Obama’s promotion of policies seemingly detrimental to the United States, his ability to lie without accountability and his constant use of political brinkmanship?
Neither Kapiolani Medical Center nor Queens Medical Center, both in Honolulu, Hawaii have ever confirmed from their hospital records that Obama was born in either hospital. Between November 20th and December 2nd of 2008, 13 separate Hawaiian hospitals were contacted to determine if Obama had been born there, none of which could or would confirm that it was the facility where he was born. Hawaiian law allows the state to issue a certificate of live birth even if the child is born outside Hawaii provided the parents have been legal residents for at least one year immediately preceding the birth.
If Obama was born in Kenya, he was not even a citizen of the United States at birth. According to the Nationality Act of 1940, revised June 1952, his American citizen mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, had to have been a resident of the United States for 10 years, at least five of which were over the age of 14, to confer U.S. citizenship. Dunham did not meet that five-year requirement until her 19th birthday in late November of 1961, almost four months after Obama was born.
In 1966 or 1967, Stanley Ann Dunham married Indonesian Muslim Lolo Soetoro, who adopted Obama, which made him an Indonesian citizen according to Indonesian law. Elementary school records in Indonesia list Obama’s name as Barry Soetoro, his religion as Islam, and his citizenship as Indonesian. Because Indonesia does not allow dual citizenship, Obama thus lost his U.S. citizenship (if he even had it) when he became an Indonesian citizen around 1967.
Indonesia today still does not allow dual citizenship. Under Indonesia law, once Obama became a naturalized citizen by virtue of adoption he could not lose that status without relinquishing his citizenship in writing, under oath. Upon returning to the United States from Indonesia, Obama eventually satisfied the “five-years-after-age-14″ residency requirement of the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act, thus making him a naturalized citizen of the United States at age 19.
It may be that Obama’s Indonesian citizenship permitted him to apply to Occidental College as a foreign student, was the reason why Obama may have never registered for Selective Service and why he could have used an Indonesian passport to travel to Pakistan in 1981.
Stated simply, Barack Obama, according to the Constitution, may never have been eligible for the office of President of the United States because he is not a natural born citizen, that is, a second generation American; a US born citizen of parents who were citizens at the time of his birth.
Given the noticeable past efforts to prevent discussion of his Constitutional ineligibility, it should come as no surprise that the politicians and media could also be protecting Obama from investigation of allegations involving a forged birth certificate, a forged Selective Service registration, and the use of a Social Security Number not issued to him.
Have the American people not only been manipulated into electing a person with anti-American sensibilities, but also accepting an illegal Presidency through a combination of willful ignorance, dereliction of duty, lies and outright fraud in order to perpetuate a corrupt political-media culture?

Are There Any Terrorist Group’s Who
ARE NOT Paid Foot Soldiers for the
U S Military Intelligence Agenda?
The Daily Sheeple
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
— President Dwight D. Eisenhower
Let me see if I have this right, because it’s getting really hard to keep things straight these days.
So it is on record that the U.S. government/military-industrial complex has financially backed the ISIS rebels in Syria to the tune of tens of millions of dollars, and key members were trained by our CIA at a secret military base in Jordan back in 2012. (See here and here for starters.) In fact, ISIS is reportedly a joint effort created by the intelligence agencies of the U.S., United Kingdom and Israel, as ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi reportedly received military training from those three agencies as per recent Edward Snowden revelations.
Worse, as reports uncovered by Tony Cartalucci showed, “the U.S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia had planned as far back as 2007 to specifically use sectarian extremists to overrun and overthrow Syria.” ISIS, by the way, is the same group who are now crucifying Christians in Iraq.
It is also on record that the U.S. government gave Bin Laden a $3 billion investment to create the terrorist network Al Qaeda — the same Al Qaeda we’re supposed to believe “did 9/11″ but also the same Al Qaeda the U.S. helped fund and put into power in Libya to overthrow Gaddafi and who ultimately killed our Ambassador and three other Americans there.
The U.S. government under the Bush Administration also gave a lump sum $43 million “grant” to Afghanistan’s Taliban government back in May 2001 right before 9/11 — that’s on top of previous financial aid already being doled out to Afghanistan at the time, and in addition to the untold billions they received back in the Soviet era when they were known as the Mujahideen. The CATO Institute puts that $43 million into context: “Afghanistan’s estimated gross domestic product was a mere $2 billion. The equivalent financial impact on the U.S. economy would have required an infusion of $215 billion. In other words, $43 million was very serious money to Afghanistan’s theocratic masters.”
The U.S. government, along with Israel, also helped create Hamas as a counterweight to the secular nationalists of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
And currently the U.S. government is financially backing the Ukrainian soldiers who are “cleansing” the “parasites” the U.S. government and media refers to as “pro-Russian separatist terrorists” (which are really just people who don’t vote the way our government wants them to in more recent Ukrainian elections) after a military operation where the U.S. put a controlled billionaire globalist puppet into power in Ukraine.
As Washington’s Blog warned:
“If the American public doesn’t start investigating [the Ukrainian civil war] now, then the results for all of us will be far worse, especially because this one could end in a nuclear war. And here is a video exposing the lies of the Obama Administration and its stooge-regime in Kiev about the May 3rd massacre in Odessa that sparked Ukraine’s civil war — our ethnic cleansing of the people who live in Ukraine’s southeast.”
But we’re supposed to believe what our government says about Russia’s involvement in shooting down Malaysian flight MH17, right? Because they don’t have a vested interest in pointing the finger at Russia, right?
Oh, I almost forgot. The Obama Administration also handed out $1.5 billion to Egypt’s military (which all ultimately ends up in the coffers of U.S. defense contractors) a few years ago when the country was under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Here’s even a story about how one of the biggest banks in the United States, Wachovia (now owned by Wells Fargo), helped launder hundreds of billions of dollars for the murderous Mexican drug cartel Sinaloa.
These are all terrorist organizations that commit horrific atrocities against humanity.
So I guess the question is: can anyone name one major influential terrorist group on the world stage today who aren’t ultimately paid foot soldiers of the Western military alliance for a carefully staged military-intelligence agenda?

“In other words [the government is] assisting in the downfall of America..”
By Adan Salazar
By leaving strategic areas along the southern U.S. border unprotected, and by using children as the face of the illegal immigrant surge to elicit public sympathy, the federal government is engaging in a sophisticated military tactic known as “asymmetrical warfare” against the American people, a former U.S. Border Patrol agent is warning.
Video: Zack Interview-Security on the border between USA and Mexico http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnkSXosZhic
Scroll to 11:44 for “asymmetrical warfare” reference (see transcript below). / Video courtesy of Little Bonanza Productions. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the government allocates resources to South Texas, it is systematically leaving areas within the U.S., as well as vast swaths of land along the border, unguarded, outspoken former Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent Zach Taylor says in an excerpted clip taken from an upcoming documentary entitled, “Back to the Border.”
“This gives people that are trying to get their infrastructure, their personnel, their drugs, their dirty bombs, their biological weapons, their chemical weapons into the United States without being noticed” the opportunity to do so, “because this part of the border is open, it is not being controlled,” the 26-year Border Patrol veteran outlines in the extensive interview.
“If asymmetrical warfare is going to be successful, the first thing that has to be done is to compromise America’s defenses against invasion,” Taylor says, “because they have to have their personnel inside the United States to affect the infrastructure.. they have to affect the degeneration from inside the United States.”
The retired federal agent claims that by magnifying the mere ten percent of the influx that is apprehended, and by mostly centering on the one percent who are immigrant minors, the government is deliberately drawing attention away from the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who evade capture – who may or may not be harboring communicable diseases, or may or may not have gang affiliations.
In Central America, children as young as 10 join violent gangs, like MS-13, an intelligence report notes, and according to FBI statistics, many are initiated by having to commit murder.
“What the people don’t realize is that it is putting their own children at risk, because these children are going to be put in schools with their children,” Taylor says.
Taylor, who also serves as Chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, had previously made headlines for slamming the recent immigrant wave as an Obama administration-manufactured crisis.
“This is not a humanitarian crisis,” Taylor wrote in a press release last month. “It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor Illegal Alien children at risk for purely political purposes. Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States Government.”
Below is a transcript of the portion of the video where Taylor explains how the immigration crisis is covert asymmetrical warfare aimed at the US public.
The whole idea of asymmetrical warfare is to defeat your enemy from within. It is not to attack him from without. Of course the threat comes from without, but they have to be inside of the US to effect a successful warfare strategy.
If asymmetrical warfare is going to be successful, the first thing that has to be done is to compromise America’s defenses against invasion, because they have to have their personnel inside the United States to affect the infrastructure: our hospitals, our schools, our electric grid, our power supplies our water supply – basically what we call “infrastructure.” All of those things create our infrastructure – but they have to affect the degeneration from inside the United States.
The markers that we’re seeing that indicate this is “asymmetrical warfare” is because the reaction that the United States is taking is they’re taking the opportunity of inviting these illegal aliens to come here, they’re concentrating them in one place in the United States, the Rio Grande Valley, and they’re drawing the resources that are protecting the rest of the US border to care for the illegal alien children, to help with the overflow of the minors, to transport, to take care of the needs of these people while they’re in Homeland Security custody.
All this takes the resources that are protecting America at the border, off of the border. So now the borders are wide open. This gives people that are trying to get their infrastructure, their personnel, their drugs, their dirty bombs, their biological weapons, their chemical weapons into the United States without being noticed because this part of the border is open, it is not being controlled.
It is a perfect military strategy. It doesn’t raise any eyebrows because we’re focused on the children, but we need to focus on our children, because this is asymmetrical warfare. Everything says it is. And the way the United States government is responding to it is concealing that fact from the American people.
In other words they’re assisting in the downfall of America, and you need to understand that.
ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND GANGS: SOMEDAY OUR CITIES WILL BURN BECAUSE WE DIDN’T PROTECT OUR BORDERS
Did you know that the number of illegal immigrants that enter Texas each week is greater
than the number of babies being born to citizens of that state?
By MICHAEL SNYDER
ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG
Did you know that the number of illegal immigrants that enter Texas each week is greater than the number of babies being born to citizens of that state? The mainstream media is shining the spotlight very brightly on all of the children that are coming over, and there is a reason for that. They are trying to tug on our heartstrings. But there is another part of the story that you aren’t hearing much about. By refusing to protect our borders, Barack Obama has allowed hundreds of thousands of gang members to illegally enter the United States and settle in our major cities. In many communities, gang activity is already wildly out of control, and someday our cities will burn because of the foolishness of the federal government.
The Obama administration knows that one out of every five illegal immigrants has a criminal record. And we are not just talking about illegal immigrants taking “upskirt photos” of women like just happened in Texas. We are also talking about rapists, murderers, drug dealers and hardcore gang members.
According to Texas State Senator Dan Patrick, illegal immigrants have been formally charged with nearly half a million crimes in his state over the past four years alone. And he also says that there are “at least 100,000 illegal immigrant gang members” living in his state right now…
On Monday’s The Laura Ingraham Show, Patrick, who is also the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, said from 2008 to 2012, 143,000 illegal immigrant criminals were arrested and jailed in Texas. He said these were “hardened criminals, gang members, and other criminals that we identified as being in Texas illegally.”
“We charged them with 447,000 crimes, a half-million crimes in four years, just in Texas, including over 5,000 rapes and 2,000 murders,” Patrick said. “We estimate we have 100,000 gang members here illegally.”
Why won’t Obama do anything to stop this madness?
There are at least 70,000 gang members living in Obama’s home city of Chicago. Other estimates put that number closer to 100,000. But everyone agrees that it is a number that is growing every day.
So it shouldn’t surprise any of us that at least 40 people were shot in Chicago over one recent July weekend.
I just fear for what Chicago will look like when things get really bad in this country. Many of our major cities are literally being transformed into tinderboxes that could erupt in flames at any time.
Overall, there are now approximately 1.4 million gang members living in the United States according to the FBI. But that number is actually a few years old now, so the true number is undoubtedly far higher at this point.
In addition, we know that illegal immigrants make up approximately 30 percent of the total population in our federal, state and local prisons.
And yet we refuse to stop more waves of illegal immigrants from coming in.
Are we willingly committing national suicide?
Just the other day, I noted that Honduras has the highest murder rate on the entire planet and that the Mexican drug war has claimed more than 120,000 lives since 2006.
That is what is coming here if we allow this insanity to continue.
Unfortunately, political correctness reigns in America today. Under current policies, our border agents are not even turning away minors with known gang affiliations that have gang tattoos all over them. Just check out the following excerpt from a recent National Review article…
Border Patrol officials struggling to keep up with the increasing number of minors illegally crossing the Mexican border are not turning away persons with known gang affiliations. Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, explained that a Border Patrol agent he represents helped reunite a teenage gang member with his family in the United States. Cabrera notes the young member of Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), a transnational criminal gang, had no criminal record in the U.S., but asks, “If he’s a confirmed gang member in his own country, why are we letting him in here?”
“I’ve heard people come in and say, ‘You’re going to let me go, just like you let my mother go, just like you let my sister go. You’re going to let me go as well, and the government’s going to take care of us,’” Cabrera says. “Until we start mandatory detentions, mandatory removals, I don’t think anything is going to change. As a matter of fact, I think it’s going to get worse.”
Art Del Cueto, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, says agents who recognize the gang-affiliated tattoos of minors crossing the border must treat them the same as anybody else. He says these people are afforded the same rights provided to anyone crossing the border.
And according to the Border Patrol, some of these “processing centers” that we have seen pictures of lately are actually being used by the gangs to recruit more gang members…
According to Border Patrol sources, violent MS-13 gang members are using the Nogales processing center in Arizona as a recruitment hub and as a transfer point for gang members to get into the United States.
The Red Cross has set up phone banks inside the processing center so unaccompanied minors can make phone calls to family members inside the United States and back home in Central America. According to sources, those phones are also being used by MS-13 members to communicate with gang members already in the United States and operating in cities like Atlanta, New York and Chicago. Further, many teenaged males inside the facility have approached Border Patrol agents and have said gang members have tried to recruit them from shared cells. According to the FBI, MS-13 regularly targets middle and high school students for recruitment.
“The National Border Patrol Council believes there to be serious security issues at the Nogales Processing Center. Agents’ hands are tied due to the policies governing the care and lodging of juveniles and this has allowed gang recruitment and activity to flourish amongst those being detained,” vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran tells Townhall. “Customs and Border Protection needs to do more to ensure that gang members that are in custody at the NPC are identified, prosecuted, and prohibited from benefiting from this crisis.”
Barack Obama can see all of this happening and yet he refuses to secure our borders.
What in the world is he thinking?
That nappy headed dog turd has surrounded his-self with terrorist advisers much smarter than he is to use every trick in the warfare book to destroy America so the Banking Cartel will set him up as our new Caesar. Their job is easy because most American’s cannot think further than who wins the next ball game.
WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA!
July 25th, 2014 by olddog
By Joachim Hagopian
Journalist Mai Bei, (Yahoo News) is reminding America of its recent dark past vis-à-vis that longtime rogue agency the CIA’s global torture operations during that rogue regime of the Bush administration.
The plot thickens with the Senate Intelligence Committee strongly in favor of declassifying its five years in the making, 6,700 page report bringing to light in graphic criminal detail the plethora of Geneva Convention and international law violations committed by overzealous CIA henchmen in their quest to torture information out of thousands of detainees the world over “fighting” America’s so called war on terror. Today’s article attempts to create high drama Washington-style by hyping up anticipation of an executive-legislative showdown between how much of the CIA’s dastardly deeds should be disclosed to the waiting American public.
Pressure is mounting on our current beleaguered president known for his disastrous foreign policy on the heels of the exact same disastrous foreign policy launched by the war criminal neocons before him. As a recent backdrop leading to this latest theatrical release of government-gone-bad is the back and forth sniping charges between the Senate Intelligence Committee and the CIA, both accusing the other of illegal spying.
Committee Chair Diane Feinstein (D-CA) had long been cozy with protecting CIA secrecy and criminality right until she learned that Director John Brennan’s CIA was busily violating her committee’s privacy. She had no problem with the American public’s privacy constantly violated in act after unconstitutional act or for that matter any world citizen’s right to life being destroyed in the name of national security. But her ire was hypocritically provoked when the CIA no doubt got up too close and personal on her naked body politic and she did not like it one bit.
Then lest we forget, we had President Obama campaigning on the promise once Bush was gone to be the most open, honest and transparent presidency in US history. What does he do? He proceeds to become the most secretive president in US history, racking up more cover-up scandals, more charges of espionage, more press harassment and more denials of Freedom of Information Act requests than all previous presidents combined! A Time Magazine article earlier this year noted:
“The administration cited national security concerns a record 8,496 times as an excuse for withholding information from the public, a 57% increase from the year before.”
Barrack Obama has given a whole new meaning to the expression “double-speak,” raising it to rarefied heights even his court jesting predecessor filled with his bumbling rendition of boldface lies and deception could never outdo. The man that raised not just America’s hopes but the entire world has the record of a proven imposter and fraudulent traitor to the American people.
But then his oligarch puppet masters are not just pulling his strings but all three treasonous branches of government as well. The joke of a corrupt and oligarch owned two party system lining its greedy pockets with the three ring circus of shadowy, shady lobbyists, Congress and think tank provocateurs, slithering amorally in and out of public life all to ensure that their puppet masters are fully obeyed and loyalty to them at all cost is maintained. The ideological dogma-quagmire of Republicans versus Democrats’ buffoonery is mere slight of hand, carefully orchestrated design. Meanwhile, the cherry picked judicial branch from the Supreme Court on down ensures every key decision pays homage to their masters as well.
So with everything so stacked against the lowly public citizens whose Constitution they lied under oath to protect, every branch of US government holds Americans in bold, in-our-face contempt. Why is there even a question being raised by a mainstream press insider about disclosure of criminal CIA behavior when even a half awake public already knows the score – secrecy in the name of national security rules the world. Theft in the name of national security rules the world. And death and destruction all around the world in the name of American Empire security.
The pretense of intergovernmental conflict over throwing a bone of reality to a truth-starved public is an affront to Americans’ intelligence. And even more insulting is the implicit reasoning that would have us citizens concluding that just because illicit torture never even worked as far as providing any relevant or useful information that helped the US “win” its war on terror, the biggest lie is asserting that torture because it was so against the law no longer is even happening just because our President says so.
Then this so called issue of invoking Senate Resolution 400 passed in 1976 creating the Senate Intel Committee has only been feebly threatened in the past to finagle grandstanding leverage against former presidents to nudge them a little closer toward honesty with the public. But not once has this little known provision been formally used and implemented to out a president on any real full and honest disclosure. It afforded the Senate the power to declassify information without the president’s approval. Though the stage is being set to send mainstream media into fulltime speculation spin, with such statements from today’s article as:
“If the president didn’t object in writing within five days, the full Senate would then weigh the report in closed session and vote on whether to unilaterally declassify it.”
But of course full declassification is precisely what is always avoided at all cost. Beyond the veneer of superficial appearance, the executive and legislative branches have always covertly worked their shady backroom deals out privately amongst themselves, far removed from the public eye of awareness, much less accountability, and that’s of course how it will stay.
Again Bai’s article makes reference that Obama will most likely reveal his heavily censored version of a generalized, ultra-brief summary that the CIA during the neocon regime engaged in some distasteful behaviors, slipping it by Americans busily “tanning themselves at the beach this summer.” What is most certain is Obama’s loyal deference to more secrecy in the name of national security ad nauseum.
And as such, those 6700 pages of colorful twisted accounts of such criminal barbarism as water boarding victims to death by drowning, ripping out their fingernails, electrocuting their gonads, those kind of unsavory details will in good taste be conveniently omitted. One more sure thing predicted to come out of all this when our psychopathic president does finally go through the motions of public disclosure. He will promise (which in double-speak means lie) that no US agency now resorts to such inhumane internationally outlawed practices of torture under his clean-cut watch.
Please Mr. President, spare us, for we know better. You are enshrouded in deceit up to your ears, and so is your entire government enshrouded in deceit as the American public is on to you like never before.
So as the apartheid US Empire allows its apartheid Israeli ally to genocide Palestinians in Gaza while trumping up another false flag with Putin and his east Ukrainian cronies downing that Malaysian flight, we are all reminded of the false flag evoked nearly a year ago when you Mr. President and your three blind henchman Kerry, Hagel and Dempsey fell on your faces trying to convince the world that Syria’s Assad launched that gas attack in the Damascus suburb.
We saw through your lies then and will see through them again. You have no credibility left with the American public, much less the world. Your ploy to obediently ignite World War III per oligarch order to get to Iran through Syria on your way past Russia and China is the only thing transparent about your presidency.

On Jul 18, 2014, at 1:51 PM, Archbishop wrote:
“I stand with the universal Catholic Church, founded by Christ. All the people whom you accuse of defrauding American citizens were elected by American citizens. That doesn’t mean that what they do is morally right, but the responsibility, finally, rests with the electorate.
God bless you.
Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I.
Archbishop of Chicago”
THE FOLLOWING RESPONSE:
“My Dear Archbishop George,
I, too, stand with the universal Catholic Church, founded by Christ. My blood seal stands upon the record of the Vatican Chancery Court in Witness of what I am going to show you tonight. I am from a family that has served the Catholic Church since the First Holy Roman Empire, Hereditary Grand Marshals of the Holy Roman Empire, Knights of the Holy Sepulcher. I have myself served as an International Services Agent and as a private attorney in service to his Holiness Pope Benedict XVI and now, Pope Francis.
You must believe that I am in deadly earnest both about the seriousness of the criminality engulfing America and the danger this poses to the Church and to the Rule of Law.
The Canon Law of the Church stands above every other form of law, and the Roman Curia above all other courts.
Even the Uniform Commercial Code which was developed by the Curia as a just means to resolve the many international disputes and claims arising from the 1930 bankruptcies of the G-5 nations is copyrighted by Unidroit, a subsidiary of the Vatican.
The organization which failed and which plunged America into this desperate criminality was originally chartered by the Church as a religious non-profit corporation.
We, Sir, are up to our ears in culpability for the circumstance herein discussed, and both the Pope Emeritus and Pope Francis have duly considered all the issues and acting in their temporal capacities, have rendered judgment as international Trustees of The United States Trust (1789) recognizing the Breach of Trust and the criminality which has been practiced against the American States and the American State Citizens.
They have both taken strong action to begin addressing the circumstance.
Pope Benedict XVI acted to create a new office in the Postal Service, establishing a regional Postmaster for North America.
Pope Francis has issued his First Apostolic Letter, the Motu Proprio of July 11, 2013, rewriting the international criminal code as part of his continuing effort to address this situation, and has more recently addressed the United Nations and collapsed the worldwide derivatives market.
This is not about any “responsibility” of the electorate.
It is about the Church’s responsibility to support the Pope in his role as the Ultimate Trustee of the Global Estate, to uphold the Rule of Law, and to make correction for a grave Breach of Trust that continued for 165 years and which has cost millions of innocent lives.
We can only confess our sins, dear Cardinal, admitting as mere mortals our desperate need for grace and rising up each day to do what we can and must.
I direct your attention to the Treaty of Paris which ended the American Revolution and the corollary Treaty of Versailles.
There are three international Trustees named as caretakers of The United States Trust (1789).
They are the Pope, in His Temporal Office, the British Monarch, and The United States Postmaster (Civil).
Now I direct your attention to the Treaty of Westminster (1794) in which the City State of Westminster and the Crown Temple pledge “amity” in “perpetuity” with the newly formed United States.
Next, I direct your attention to the Treaty of Verona (1845) in which the then-Pope and the British Monarch, both Trustees of the American national trust, agreed that the representative form of government was incompatible with Divine Right of Kings and with Papal Supremacy, and so both acted in secretive Breach of Trust.
The British Monarch issued Letters of Marque and Reprisal to the members of the Bar Association (British Crown Commercial Company) which issued licenses to privateers to attack American “vessels” in international jurisdictions of the law. That, Sir, is the genesis of Bar Association Licenses.
A “license” as you must know, is permission to engage in an act which would otherwise be illegal.
The Americans responded by quickly passing an Amendment to their Constitution effectively barring attorneys from holding public office. In 1860, Abraham Lincoln, a Bar attorney, was elected President of the United States (Commercial Company) but could not lawfully act as the President of The United States of America (Major).
This is why representatives of eleven Southern States refused to be seated and left the Congress adjourned sine die.
In 1863, Lincoln was forced to bankrupt the original Trust Management Company doing business as The United States.
After years of bankruptcy reorganization known euphemistically as “reconstruction” a new Trust Management Organization was incorporated by the Church, doing business as the United States of America, Inc.
This entity operated under Church auspices from the end of the Reconstruction to 1912, when the Trust Management Organization was purchased by a consortium of banks doing business as the Federal Reserve.
By 1913 they had pushed through the “Federal Reserve Act” and via legal tender laws began a purposeful agenda to devalue the American Dollar and bankrupt the original corporation doing business as the United States of America, Inc.
In May of 1930, the G-5 nations declared international bankruptcy via joint treaty entered into at the Geneva Conventions.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the representative of the Federal Reserve dba United States of America, Inc.
Three years later, having been elected President, he declared domestic bankruptcy as well.
One of his first acts was to illegally confiscate privately held American gold, which was never repaid.
As the United States of America, Inc. was being prepared for bankruptcy, agents throughout the Congress and the individual states of the Union rushed through a process of “registering franchises”.
They created “states of states” merely named after the actual geographically defined American states. They also created foreign situs trusts named after each and every living American.
At the March 6, 1933, Conference of Governors meeting, the Governors — merely corporate officers of franchises of the bankrupt United States of America, Inc. — pledged the “good faith and credit” of “their States and the citizenry thereof” to stand as sureties for the debts of the United States of America, Inc. during its bankruptcy reorganization.
Imagine that Burger King International went bankrupt in the UK and it called all the local franchise owners together and they all agreed to name their customers as sureties for their corporate debts.
That is what happened in America in 1933. The victims weren’t told a word about this.
The perpetrators were rewarded by the bankers with access to virtually unlimited credit “hypothecated” against the assets of the American States and the private property of the American State Citizens.
All this credit cost the bankers nothing material, as they had inculcated a fiat money system. Issuing credit — “money of account” — cost them nothing but the time to enter digits in an account ledger.
In exchange for this favor to the politicians, they were rewarded with legal tender laws allowing this “system” to exist in America, and given surreptitious title to all real property assets in America, and provided with protection for their activities by the members of the Bar Associations.
In 1944, FDR quit claimed all the juicy service contracts and the assets used to service these governmental service contracts to the IMF.
The IMF took over from the Federal Reserve, gaining control of every logo, name, title, department, and agency of the “United States of America, Inc.” — what Americans believe to be their government — right down to the flag.
They charted a new Trust Management Organization in France doing business as the UNITED STATES, Inc. and moved in. They also took over the “State” franchises and opened their own “STATE OF______” franchises.
For the past 70 years they have enslaved the people of America and plundered the assets of The United States Trust (1789).
The creditors who forced the bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc. included the World Bank, the International Bank of Development and Reconstruction, and the Federal Reserve — but the priority creditors named in the 1934 Bankruptcy Act were the American States and the American State Citizens.
The banks, being aware of their own schemes, named the Secretary of the Treasury of Puerto Rico to act as their chosen Bankruptcy Trustee. (See Federal Title 5 for details.)
The Secretary of the Treasury of Puerto Rico seized all the bogus “States on Paper” and “Americans on Paper” created by the Roosevelt Administration and rolled all the assets presumed to be part of these trusts into Roman Inferior Trusts (Cestui Que Vie Trusts) operated “in the NAME of” the foreign situs trusts Roosevelt created.
Thus, a living man denoted properly as “john quincy adams” was misrepresented as a foreign situs trust doing business as “John Quincy Adams” and then this entity was declared “dead, presumed missing at sea” by the perpetrators of this massive identity theft scheme, and all the assets of “John Quincy Adams” were rolled over into a Roman Inferior Trust doing business as “JOHN QUINCY ADAMS”.
The Secretary of the Treasury of Puerto Rico also “removed” all these Roman Inferior Trusts to Puerto Rico for “safe keeping” where they came under the foreign jurisdiction of the Puerto Rican Commonwealth and the UK. There they were enslaved and taxed for the privilege of importing revenue to Puerto Rico — otherwise known as the “income tax”.
All this was done in the name of winning World War II.
The claims against the American assets supplied the credit to boot up the war industry effort and seizing the ESTATES of the Americans and “redefining” individual Americans as chattel belonging to their own ESTATES allowed a means of conscripting millions of men into the Armed Services.
After the War, nothing changed. The perpetrators never retooled American industry.
They just went on pumping out armaments and selling arms and borrowing money against assets they never owned and enslaving the American people to the tune of Yankee Doodle Dandy.
Over the years the criminality of the arms dealers has become a terrible worldwide problem.
They branched out from simply selling weapons and promoting war, to selling drugs and running gambling and prostitution rings, booze and cigarettes, and every form of vice, violence, and viciousness.
They also used their position of trust as “the government” to manipulate commodity and stock markets, and control natural resources belonging to the American people for private gain.
And the Church is culpable, because at the broader base, the Church knew and did nothing.
It continued to mindlessly operate on the directives established by the Treaty of Verona and never re-examined the disastrous consequences of all this for humanity, much less the hideous theft and abuse practiced upon the Americans — incalculable amounts of labor siphoned off, incalculable material losses, and millions of lives lost or maimed in wars for profit.
To that, you and your peers have turned a blind eye and shrugged, and said, it’s the responsibility of the voters.
The same voters who have been purposefully misled and self-interestedly abused, kept in the dark, manipulated, defrauded, and robbed?
By their EMPLOYEES and those they trusted to act in their behalf? By the Supreme Pontiff, who was obligated by solemn treaty to act as their Trustee?
It’s with good reason that the higher administrators of the Church have been reluctant to expose the criminality or deal with it, for fear that the Church would be blamed.
However, by 2009, the Church was being blamed, effectively and determinedly, until it was all finally brought before Pope Benedict XVI, who accepted responsibility, who exercised his temporal powers, and began dealing with the corruption.
Pope Francis has brought the vitality and vigor and insight needed to the Office and is continuing to bring remedy.
Meanwhile the bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc. has finally been ended.
The old “Federal Reserve System” is no more, but a new version of “FEDERAL RESERVE” has been organized under UNITED NATIONS auspices and has tried to mount a new round of the same old game in collusion with the IMF.
It’s a funny thing about a “debt-credit” monetary system. When you create a debt for one party, you unavoidably create a debt for another.
So when people talk about the “National Debt” being “$13 or $21 or however many trillion “dollars” that means that somewhere, someone or something, is being CREDITED with that amount of money.
Exactly who and what came to the surface in July of 2011. We have the UCC Filings on file.
The perpetrators rolled the credit side of the “National Debt” over into the “United States Department of the Treasury” and used it to back a new specie of fiat debt note called “US TREASURY NOTES”.
They have attempted, in other words, to initiate another round of the same old scam.
There is little doubt that it was the intention of the two colluding banking cartels — the FEDERAL RESERVE and the IMF — to simply reverse positions: bankrupt the UNITED STATES, INC.
leaving the Roman Inferior Trusts named after the Americans to stand as sureties for the debts of the insolvent UNITED STATES, INC. during another nice, long bankruptcy reorganization.
Intervention by Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis both, together with ever-increasing public awareness of the situation and the fraud, has served to make what is euphemistically called “re-venue” impossible.
In addition to the American State Citizens waking up, the Russians and Chinese and other nations of the BRICS Alliance woke up.
As part of the fraud practiced against the Americans, Canadians, Australians, Japanese, and the populations of most the countries of Western Europe, all bank accounts were converted to the ownership of the banks.
As you now know, if you didn’t before, all bank accounts belonging to “JOHN QUINCY PUBLIC” are in fact accounts belonging to a Puerto Rican ESTATE Trust owned and operated by agencies of the IMF.
This is how Christine LaGarde can speak so nonchalantly about seizing American 401k’s and savings and other retirement accounts: the IMF surreptitiously owns those accounts.
The living Americans who innocently deposited their life savings into those accounts thinking that they were their own private bank accounts have been deceived and defrauded and “presumed” by the perpetrators to “donate” everything in those accounts to “public trusts” operated in their NAMES.
Remember — I am an officer of the Church, too.
I have taken the vow and placed the blood seal on the altar.
This is not a joke.
This is not a rehearsal.
Take what you believe to be “your” check book out of your pocket and a strong magnifying glass and look at what appears to be the signature line — what do you see?
It’s not really a line.
It’s a row of microprint endlessly repeating “authorizing signature”.
Why would that verbiage have to be there, and why would it have to be obscured? To keep the victims from knowing the truth — that all their assets in banks have been unlawfully converted.
You’ve already been told about the Puerto Rican ESTATE Trusts. Now witness the IRS scam.
The living man, john quincy adams, is exempt by law from ever having to pay taxes, and by definition, “income” is profit accrued by corporations.
It is literally impossible for any living American to owe income tax, yet millions upon millions of Americans are robbed, defrauded, harassed, and even imprisoned every year over “income” taxes.
How is this possible?
The JOHN QUINCY ADAMS ESTATE is a trust, a legal fiction entity, a corporation.
Every dime that the living man known as john quincy adams unknowingly “donates” to the bank account belonging to the JOHN QUINCY ADAMS ESTATE is 100% profit for a Puerto Rican trust, and it just so happens that there is an excise tax for the privilege of importing revenue to Puerto Rico.
The monster tax the poor devils for the privilege of giving them their money, and then people like Christine LaGarde sit around drinking champagne and callously discussing exactly how to finesse the seizure of the retirement accounts of millions of innocent American Senior Citizens.
But there are worse things.
Other elements among the criminals have taken out million dollar life insurance policies on every American man, woman and child.
They think they will simply murder a few hundred million of their creditors and collect on the life insurance policies.
Have you heard of the All Seeing? Cardinal George?
I am the left hand of anu:hotep and I will be obeyed in this matter, as will Pope Francis.
There will be no seizure of the American retirement accounts, no false flags, no murder, no mayhem, no scalar weapons deployed.
There will be no deceptive “offers” in commerce seeking to exchange gold for land or human capital under conditions of non-disclosure and deceit.
There will be an end to this criminality and to the complacency of the Church and of the American Cardinals and Archbishops responsible for the mis-administration of the courts.
Or there will be Hell on earth, Cardinal George — literally, and it will not come against the innocent Americans. The Left Hand of God will come for those who are responsible and unrepentant.
The Treaty of Verona is extinguished.
All Bar Association licenses are extinguished.
By order of Pope Francis, all attorneys, all clerks, every member of the judicial system operating these frauds and oppressions became 100% individually and commercially liable as of September 1, 2013.
The banking cartels and governmental services corporations have been given three years to clean up their acts from top to bottom, to come into compliance with the Original Equity contract owed to the Americans, and to stop operating in criminal default.
I suggest that you get over your idea that it is the voter’s responsibility.
May God bless you to the same extent that you bless others.

“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” -James Madison, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 16, 1788
American Legislative Exchange Council
Paul Weyrich also founded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and was Director/President from 1975-1978. ALEC first came into being in 1973 in Chicago as the “Conservative Caucus of State Legislators.” In 1975, with the support of the American Conservative Union, ALEC registered as a federal non-profit agency. Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rights. These so-called “model bills” reach into almost every area of American life and, more often than not, directly benefit huge corporations. In ALEC’s own words, corporations have “a VOICE and a VOTE” on specific changes to the law that are then proposed in your state, and sometimes in the federal legislature.
The Madison Group, the predecessor to the State Policy Network (SPN – mini Heritage Foundation’s in each state), was “launched by ALEC,” and housed in the Chicago-based Heartland Institute, so says a 1991 report by the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP). Heartland is funded by the Koch brothers, David and Charles, the former being a member of the globalist Aspen Institute. Remember Aspen Institute’s Director was none other than Maurice Strong, author and promoter of UN Agenda 21. NCRP also reported that the Madison Group’s annual meeting was, at that time, “sponsored by Heritage Foundation and the Free Congress Foundation,” which was led by Paul Weyrich.
The NCRP report also notes that ALEC was then “housed in the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the Heritage Foundation, a seven-story brick building on Capitol Hill, appointed with thick rugs, chandeliers and enormous floral arrangements. On the second floor, near the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America and Amway headquarters, ALEC had a suite of offices.” Today, they are housed in Arlington, VA.
Former Amway President, and CNP charter member, Dick DeVos, and his wife Betsy DeVos, (former chair of the Michigan Republican Party and brother of Erik D. Prince, founder of Blackwater/Xe/Academi) are long-time supporters of the Heritage Foundation and SPN affiliates such as Michigan’s influential Mackinac Center for Public Policy. ALEC has a huge list of corporate donors. Here is a list of their many corporate members, and here is a partial list of politicians that are known to be involved in, or previously involved in ALEC. Not all dues-paying members of ALEC are included because ALEC does not post its full list, but the list includes politicians who have been in a leadership role in ALEC, as a member of a task force, or other publicly known role. It also includes politicians who have been featured speakers or who have accepted awards at ALEC meetings.
ALEC’s membership is 95% corporate along with 2500 of the 7500 legislators from every state. This is where state legislation originates. For you Tennesseans, remember that state Senator Mark Norris, the bagman for our neo-conservative Trotskyite governor, is a long time member of ALEC. I would bet every state has members of ALEC.
Public-Private Partnerships (P-3)
NCRP reported, “Privatization is the altar at which the American Legislative Exchange Council and the Madison Group worship. The state think tanks’ agenda includes privatization of most public services, from mass transit to health clinics to environmental protection, and even libraries; vouchers and tax credits; deregulation of business; opposition to labor-backed policies like the minimum wage and family leave; and rollback of taxes.”
In Bill Jasper’s New American Magazine article, The Not-So-Smart ALEC, of April 21, 2014, he states, “ALEC’s model legislation for states promotes a “Public-Private Partnership (P3) Authority Act,” the summary of which states:
“This Act establishes a state Partnership Committee and an Office of Public-Private Partnerships to identify and establish public-private partnerships and approve qualified bidders, requests for proposals, and template contracts. The Act is designed to improve public operational efficiency and environmental performance, promote public safety, attract private investment in the state, and minimize governmental liabilities.”
“In this area, the supposedly “conservative” ALEC is perfectly in step with the “progressive” Obama administration, which has made public-private partnerships (P3) a centrepiece of its statist program. Many of ALEC’s member corporations are also partners in Obama’s Fedgov/Big Business “Manufacturing Innovation” consortiums and other P3 endeavours. They include such well-known names as Boeing, General Electric, Microsoft, Caterpillar, Dow Chemical, ALCOA, and ExxonMobil. Hillary Clinton, while Obama’s secretary of state, launched the administration’s P3 Global Partnership Initiative, spreading hundreds of billions of dollars in corporate welfare to the well-connected.”
ALEC is in the forefront of spreading the P3 gospel at the state level, along with its progressive partner, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (USCC), which, like ALEC, talks a good game of “free markets” while actually promoting corporate subsidies and economic fascism. Please read Erica Carle’s short three part article on the Chamber of Commerce and the New World Order
ALEC’s corporate P3 members are well represented by:
• Big Pharma (Abbott, AstraZeneca, Bayer, Genetech, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer);
• Big Farm (Altria Group, Archer Daniels Midland, Kraft Food, J.R. Simplot, -Monsanto);
• Big Oil (Shell, BP, Peabody, Marathon, Texaco, Tenneco, Chevron, ExxonMobil);
• Big Banking (Bank of America, Coldwell Banker, Wells Fargo, First Chicago NBD);
• Big Gambling (Hollywood Casino Corp., Argosy Gaming Co., Boyd Gaming Corp., GTECH Corp.);
• Big Media (Cox Communications, Comcast, the Wall Street Journal, News Corp., Thompson Reuters, Time Warner Cable);

ALEC’s critics on the Left erroneously cite these cosy corporate ties as evidence of the corruption inherent in “free market” capitalism. But the ALEC/Obama P3 “partnerships” are the antithesis of genuine free markets, in which entrepreneurs risk their own capital not that of the captive taxpayers to build businesses that provide goods and services consumers freely choose to purchase, not those determined for them by politicians and government planners. This information all came from Bill Jasper’s amazing article, check it out here.
ALEC and the Article V Convention
ALEC has long promoted an Article V Constitutional Convention using the excuse that we need a Balanced Budget Amendment. If you’ve read Publius Huldah’s articles on same, here and here, then you understand what a terrible danger the BBA actually is to our Constitution. ALEC even produced a “Resolution for Limitations on Authority of Delegates to a ‘Convention for Proposing Amendments’ (Article V, United States of America Constitution).” ALEC claims this resolution will curtail and eliminate the possibility of a “runaway convention.” The resolution restricts delegates to work only on those amendments authorized in their legislative instructions and calls for the immediate recall of any delegate that works on an unauthorized amendment.” This is total balderdash! Once a Convention is opened, all is fair game!
The very reason most often cited by scholars for their opposition to an Article V Convention is because the 1787 Convention set the precedent. There is absolutely no way that a new Constitutional Convention can possibly be controlled, no matter the circumstances or restrictions set down prior to the Convention.
The precedent was set in the 1787 Convention when the states convened simply to revise the Articles of Confederation, and ended up throwing out the Articles, and writing a new Constitution. The intention from the outset of many of its proponents, chief among them James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, was to create a new government rather than fixing the existing one. This is also what exists today. George Soros and his leftist groups, along with the neo-conservative Trotskyites on the right, Michael Farris, Mike Levin, Goldwater Institute, I Am America, David Barton, Glenn Beck, etc. etc. ad nauseam, are all fomenting change to our Constitution through an Article V convention. What is waiting in the wings is the New States Constitution written over a period of 10 years, at a cost of $25 million, by the Ford Foundation, which eliminates everything after “We The People,” and that includes our God given, unalienable rights.
Countless authorities have stated that there is no Constitutional Convention that can be controlled. Once a Con-Con is opened, the entire document can be taken down and changed. There are no statesmen today like our founders, and the risk of opening a Convention for any reason, would result in the destruction of the last threads binding us to a representative Republic.
Here is ALEC’s handbook on the Constitutional Convention, and of note, the Church of Scientology is also an ALEC member.[ Link]
ALEC and Common Core
In the Washington Post article of June 7, 2014, it states what we already knew, “The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation didn’t just bankroll the development of what became known as the Common Core State Standards. With more than $200 million, the foundation also built political support across the country, persuading state governments to make systemic and costly changes.”
Gates money flowed to policy groups on the left and the right, which funded research by scholars of varying political persuasions who promoted the idea of common standards. None of this is new, of course. Back in the 60s, we had Mastery Learning and then Outcome Based Education, then Goals 2000, etc. ad nauseam, all of which were the same exact thing with a different name. Those fighting Communist Core have failed to realize that liberals at the Center for American Progress and so-called conservatives affiliated with the American Legislative Exchange Council, both accepted money from Gates to promote Communist Core. Normally these groups disagree on every issue that comes down the pike, but they found common ground on Common Core, the diversion from the danger of charters, vouchers and choice, the real Trojan Horse!
ALEC and Trade Agreements
Again, in The Not-So-Smart ALEC, Bill Jasper tells about ALEC members adopting a “Resolution Supporting the Successful Negotiation of a Comprehensive and Commercially Meaningful Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).” ALEC also adopted a “Resolution Urging Congress to Pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP).”
Jasper goes on to say:
“One of the most important facts, if not the most important, to know about both the TTIP and TPP is that they would, if adopted, steadily strip away our national sovereignty, allowing the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations, as well as regional tribunals and regulatory bodies created by these agreements, to override our local, state, and federal laws. This feature alone makes them very subversive, revolutionary proposals that should be opposed by every elected or appointed official who has taken an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” This is no longer a matter of theoretical speculation; as The New American has reported previously, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the WTO agreement have amply proved this. As a result of adopting both of those agreements, NAFTA and WTO rules and rulings increasingly trump our laws.”
This is what Paul Weyrich, the Grand Poobah of the phony right, has given us with ALEC.
Weyrich was also a Member of The Interfaith Council for Environmental Stewardship (ICES), which amounts to a “green” Evangelicals and Catholics Together document, with many involved already having signed the ECTI or ECT II or other ecumenical ventures. Their Cornwall Declaration on Environmental Stewardship, a dominionist group and effort, signed by Evangelicals, Catholics and Jews, many from the CNP, is an environmental statement of faith uniting these same groups in yet another venue.
In Part 8, we’ll discuss Weyrich’s and Morton Blackwell’s membership in The Society for the Protection of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP). Again, the name is the antithesis of TFP’s real strategy and purpose, just like many of the laws our Congress passes where the names sound so good, but the law is so unconstitutional.

General Civil Orders
June 10, 2014
Issued to All Members of the Domestic Police Forces, US Marshals Service, the Provost Marshal, Members of the American Bar Association and the American Armed Services
At the federal level the American government has always been a separate foreign international maritime jurisdiction operated under contract to provide two services: (1) protect the national trust assets, and (2) perform governmental services for the Several States— which in terms of international law are all recognized sovereign nations.
The equity contract known as “The Constitution for the united States of America” makes it clear that the Several States contracted to form a single governmental services agency known as “The United States”. The contract stipulates the assets to be held in trust by the federal government in the Preamble and Bill of Rights comprising the trust indenture portion of the contract and also stipulates the nineteen enumerated services to be performed—and exactly what “powers” the States agreed to delegate to The United States and how they would pay for these services.
What isn’t so widely known or appreciated is that the governmental services company known as The United States was a privately owned and operated commercial company set up by Benjamin Franklin in 1754. George Washington was actually the 11th “President” of this company, and only the 1st President to take office after the receipt of the “Constitution” contract.
According to the 1824 Webster’s Dictionary, the word “federal” was a synonym for “contract” at the time the original Constitution was written. All “constitutions” are affirmations of debt —in this case, the debt the States assumed when they created the federal government and jointly agreed to pay for the services that it would provide. The office of “President” is and always has been a uniquely commercial office, not a “Head of State”.
Because the federal governmental services company is privately owned and operated, only shareholders known as “electors” have a real say in its elections and administration, only “trustees” known as “members of Congress” have the right to determine how the national trust assets are protected though they are obligated as trustees to do a reasonable job of it, and only the States have the right to complain if the stipulated services aren’t up to par.
The American people at large, known simply as “inhabitants of the domestic states” or “State Citizens” have always been a separate and distinct population apart from “US Citizens” or “Federal Citizens”— and to these two groups a third kind of “citizen” was added in 1871, that of “US citizen”.
Following the Civil War, the governmental services company providing the services agreed to by the States reorganized as a corporation dba the “United States of America, Incorporated” and published its Articles as the “Constitution of the United States of America”. Unlike “The Constitution for the united States of America”, the “Constitution of the United States of America” is a document peculiar to the new “Municipal” – that is, “City State” government formed to administer the affairs of the District of Columbia and federal territories and possessions.
This corporate “constitution” provided for the creation of a new kind of “Federal Citizen”—-a “US citizen”—and from that point onward, from the perspective of the new federal municipal government formed by the Act of 1871— American State Citizens (the inhabitants of the domestic fifty states) were regarded as “non-resident aliens”. This same corporation dba the “United States of America, Incorporated” (chartered in Delaware) began operating two separate “governments” at once— the “municipal government of the District of Columbia” and the “federal government” owed to the States of the Union—-both under the auspices of the “United States Congress”.
These semantic deceits have given rise to endless confusions, usurpations, and criminality. These General Civil Orders address some of those issues which are most important at this time.
The Congress ceased operating as it was required by contract to operate in 1860. After December of 1865, it never again operated as an unincorporated Body Politic representing the States of the Union. The “federal government” has functioned exclusively as an incorporated commercial entity, with an elected Board of Directors merely calling itself the “US Congress” ever since. As such, the “federal government” is a commercial corporation like any other commercial corporation. It has no special status, no immunity from prosecution, and hasn’t functioned as a governing body of a sovereign nation for 150 years.
To overcome this obvious difficulty the “US Congress” formed another “union” of “American” “states” from the “federal territories and possessions”. The Seven Insular States including the “State of New Columbia” (District of Columbia), Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, et alia, and formed a new nation simply calling themselves “the United States of America” and claimed separate national sovereignty.
Thus we have The United States of America (Major) comprised of the now-fifty organic States created by Statehood Compacts and the United States of America (Minor) representing the seven Insular States, both being administered under the direction of the corporate Board of Directors known as the “US Congress”— which has continued to act solely as the sovereign government of “the United States of America” (Minor).
These blatant semantic deceits by officers of the federal corporation and officials of “the United States of America (Minor)” amount to purposeful constructive fraud against their employers, the American organic states. To try to overcome this obstacle, members of the “US Congress” contrived a “complex regulatory scheme” by which they established their own “State” governments and have tried to claim that they have been at “war” with the American people while relying upon the organic states for their own sustenance and have falsely claimed that they established “exclusive legislative jurisdiction” over the original states of the Union by these acts of self-interested fraud carried out against their employers and benefactors.
Fraud has no statute of limitations.
The governmental services corporations have always been under commercial contract to provide services to the American people and have acted against their employers as employees.
It is essential that members of the Bar Associations, members of the “State” governments which have been surreptitiously “redefined” to their detriment, members of the domestic police forces, and members of the various armed forces gain a clear understanding of the fact that for purposes of administration of government services on American State soil, the “federal government” is a corporation with no more civil authority on the land than JC PENNY or HARLEY DAVIDSON.
The “federal government” is under contract to the organic States and as our Forefathers vested the ENTIRE civil government on the land in the people inhabiting the land, each American is a sovereign “organic state” of the union. Each one of us has more civil power and authority on the land than the entire “federal government” has ever had or ever can have.
For that reason and as a result of the deliberations which have already taken place among the other nations of the world, the “federal government” dba the UNITED STATES, INC. , a French commercial corporation, is hereby called to task for non-performance on its contractual obligations. The semantic deceits involved in claiming that American State Citizens are “US citizens” and all the other fraudulent claims advanced against the American states and people are to be fully recognized for what they are—fraudulent claims having no merit and owed no enforcement.
Other corporate entities, notably the FEDERAL RESERVE and INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, which are responsible for creating and promoting this fraud are to be recognized and dealt with appropriately as international dealers in fraud and usury.
American Negroes have in the past been considered “US citizens” because that is the only “citizenship” they were ever granted after the Civil War, a grave error of justice that resulted in them only having “civil rights” which are privileges granted by the “US Congress” instead of the “Natural and Unalienable Rights” they are naturally heir to. They were also claimed as chattel backing the debts of the United States of America, Incorporated, despite both national and international prohibitions abolishing slavery and peonage. A prompt correction is available from the organic states and by proclamation of these organic states, they are granted full and immediately recognizable status as “American Nationals” owed all the “Natural and Unalienable Rights” of any other organic State Citizen, no matter which geographically defined state they may inhabit on the land. The only exceptions are those unfortunates born within the borders of the Insular States—District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, etc.—who must self-declare under Article 15 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
It has been the policy of the United States of America (Minor) to consider all federal employees and members of the active duty military who are birthright inhabitants of The United States of America (Major) temporary “dual citizens” subject to the United States of America (Minor). However, The United States of America (Major) recognizes no dual citizenship whatsoever, and the process required for any birthright inhabitant of the land to adopt “US Citizenship” is both lengthy and purposeful, as stated in US Statute at Large 2, Revised Statute 2561. As the employers of the United States of America (Minor) we exercise our proprietary interest and direct all American State Citizens to defend the interests and integrity of the American organic states regardless of any contrary “orders” issued by any corporate officer of the UNITED STATES or foreign official acting under the auspices of the United States of America (Minor).
All birthright State Citizens of The United States of America (Major) are specifically enjoined from engaging in any activity contrary to the health, welfare, safety, and benefit of their fellow State Citizens and will otherwise be recognized as criminals regardless of what uniforms they wear or what authorities they pretend to have. If corporate “President” Obama should order any member of the “US military” or any armed “agency personnel” —BATF, IRS, NSA, FEMA, etc.—-to open fire upon American State Citizens, it will be a war crime against non-combatant civilians and it will be immediately recognized as such throughout the world.
For all military and civilian-based defense and law enforcement agencies the rule to be observed is: if you can’t do it as a private individual, you can’t do it as a public officer.
Any State Citizen who is forced to open fire on federally or federal “State” or “STATE” funded personnel in defense of life or property will be recognized as a non-combatant civilian without exception, held harmless, and supported by all members of the American Armed Forces of the United States of America (Major) and all American State Militias. Any State Citizen so imposed upon by those in his or her employment or hired by those in his or her employment in any capacity whatsoever including “elected” officials, will be entitled to full reparations in the amount of $5,000,000.00 USD or the equivalent at the time of the damage incurred for every death, $2,500,000.00 USD or the equivalent at the time of the damage for every permanent disability. They shall also be owed full reparations for all property damage incurred and up to eighty (80) times compensatory damages at the discretion of a jury of their peers.
The individual States of the Union formed by Statehood Compact retain the full and unencumbered claim upon their birthright inhabitants. These “states” are defined geographically. They are not incorporated entities, and they are not “represented” by any incorporated “State of________” or “STATE OF_________” organization at this time. They are presented solely by the unincorporated Body Politic and their individual inhabitants, who retain all organic and civil prerogatives on the land.
Those organizations currently calling themselves the “State of Alaska” or the “STATE OF ALASKA”, etc., are representatives of two different governmental services corporations operated by the FEDERAL RESERVE (“State of Alaska”) and the INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND (“STATE OF ALASKA”), doing business as franchises of the United States of America, Inc. and the UNITED STATES, INC. respectively. They have no representational capacity whatsoever and are operating under commercial contract only.
Because these “State” and “Federal” entities have all functioned under conditions of non-disclosure and semantic deceit serving to promulgate fraud upon the organic states and the American people, they are all to be considered criminal syndicates to the extent that they have been aware of their status and have failed to correct their operations and representations. All contracts held by these organizations or assumed to be held by these organizations are null and void for fraud. These contracts include but are not limited to contracts for sale, for labor, for trade, “citizenship” contracts, powers of attorney, licenses, mortgages, registrations, and application agreements of all kinds. All signatures of American State Citizens acting under the influence of semantic deceit and non-disclosure are rescinded.
All those individuals engaged in employment as “federal” and “state” and “municipal” employees and “elected officials” are hereby given Notice that they are employees of private, for-profit corporations that are merely under contract to provide stipulated public services, having no special status, having no immunity, and having no authority as sovereign nations or states. Any actions that they take infringing on the rights and prerogatives of American State Citizens are criminal acts without exception and are to be treated as criminal acts. These individuals have exactly the same standing as employees of any other commercial company, and the rules, regulations, codes, and other “statutes” they enforce are obligations unique to those organizations only.
Posse Comitatus is to be observed and enforced on the land of the domestic organic states regardless of any Executive Order issued by Barack H. Obama acting as “President” of the United States of America (Minor) or as the President of any incorporated entity whatsoever. Any such imposition of “martial law” by Mr. Obama has exactly the same legal standing as “martial law” imposed by the President of BURGER KING, INTERNATIONAL or the King of Sweden on the land of the organic states. He can order his paid employees to commit hari kari if he wishes to do so, and they may follow his instructions if they care to, but they may not under any circumstance murder anyone, assault anyone, seize any private property, or cause any trouble for American State Citizens, or they shall be immediately recognized as criminals and treated as such.
Likewise, the government of the United States of America (Minor) may do what it wills with those who are legitimately born under its hegemony, but it cannot say one word claiming authority over any birthright State Citizen of The United States of America (Major).
Please note that Barack H. Obama is “Commander in Chief” of the “US Armed Forces” which legitimately includes the Puerto Rican Navy and whatever security forces are endemic to Guam, American Samoa and the other Insular States.
The Grand Army of the Republic and its successors are obligated to perform under General Order 100.
The American Armed Forces also known as the Armed Forces of The United States of America (Major) are paid for by and obligated to serve the organic states, which we present and for which we require your service. In the absence of a properly formed and operational government of the Republic, all rights revert to the organic states, including the civil authority to issue these General Orders. “President” Barack H. Obama is operating as an official of the United States of America (Minor) and as a corporate officer in the employ of the UNITED STATES, a French commercial corporation chartered by the International Monetary Fund, an agency of the UNITED NATIONS. He is not now nor has he ever been elected to any public office of The United States of America (Major).
Likewise the members of the “US Congress” have never taken the Oath of any Public Office of The United States of America (Major) and are merely operating as private corporate officers of the same commercial corporation dba the “UNITED STATES”.
All offices deriving and paid and/or receiving credit entirely or in part as a result of the original equity contract known as The Constitution for the united States of America are offices of the Armed Forces of The United States of America (Major) by definition and those who serve in these offices are employees of the inhabitants of the domestic now-fifty States defined by Statehood Compacts. As such, you are now receiving direct orders under the civil authority of these organic states.
All the foregoing circumstance is indeed the “mischief” predicted by Chief Justice Harlan in his dissenting opinion given in Downes v. Bidwell — mischief resulting from allowing Congress to operate two governments at once, one a constitutional Republic, and the other an oligarchy under the plenary control of Congress. The members of the “US Congress” have been corrupted by power lust or through ignorance subverted and used to serve the aims of criminals. That does not give anyone else a license to sin. It merely requires the recognition of the sins of the members of the Congress and appropriate enlightened action depriving them of any power or excuse to continue these deceits and usurpations.
There are 515 people responsible. It is incumbent upon them to straighten it out, and for the rest of us to insist that they do so. It is also the responsibility of all members of the domestic police

Exactly 70 years ago to the day, hundreds of delegates from 44 nations were busy at work in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire creating a brand new financial system.
World War II had just ended. Europe was in ruin.
And since the US was simultaneously the largest economy in the world, the primary victor in the war, and the only major power with its productive capacity intact, it was easy to dictate terms: the dollar would dominate the new system.
Every nation would hold dollars as the primary reserve currency, and the dollar would be redeemable for gold at $35/ounce.
Also, global commerce would be conducted and settled in dollars, and these settlements would clear through the US banking system.
Naturally this created substantial demand from foreign governments who needed to begin accumulating dollars for trade and reserves.
So through a variety of programs, from the Marshall Plan to the IMF and World Bank, the US began flooding the world with dollars.
Initially everything went according to plan.
But soon the US government realized something important– foreign demand for the dollar was so strong that they could get away with printing more dollars than they had gold.
This allowed them to run all sorts of deficits and spending initiatives– more war, more welfare, more waste… all with minimal accountability.
Initially the consequences were insignificant.
Sure, the price of gold in London was a few dollars higher than in the US (they called this the ‘gold window’).
But demand for the dollar was still strong. So why bother changing?
By 1971, the situation had gotten far worse. Another decade of war, excessive spending, trade deficits, and money printing had pushed many foreign nations to their breaking points.
Foreign nations’ dollar reserves far exceeded the US government’s gold holdings. And with confidence waning, many began redeeming their dollars for gold.
Only days later, Richard Nixon put a stop to this and unilaterally terminated the US dollar’s convertibility to gold.
Think about the magnitude of this decision: Nixon was effectively defaulting on US obligations to the rest of the world– a complete betrayal of their trust.
Yet despite this massive shock that reset the global financial system, the dollar somehow managed to remain the world’s #1 reserve currency.
You’d think they would have been grateful, thanking their lucky stars that the rest of the world gave them a second chance. But no.
Over the past 43 years, the US has continued to print, devalue, and mismanage the dollar.
- Along the way, they’ve created epic bubbles and financial shocks.
- They’ve run up the biggest deficits and debt levels ever seen in the history of the world.
- They’ve bickered internally to the point of shutting down government.
- They’ve passed arrogant, painful regulations and commanded the rest of the world to comply under threats tantamount to financial homicide.
- They’ve unleashed their tax and securities authorities to terrorize anyone doing business with the US.
- They’ve totally ignored foreign pleas to restructure the IMF and World Bank.
- They’ve slammed foreign banks with record fines simply for doing business with nations that the US doesn’t like.
- They’ve waged pointless wars. They’ve spied on their allies. They’ve meddled in other nations’ affairs.
- And they’ve demonstrated absolutely no willingness or ability to improve.
Simply put, other nations are done. Fed up, really. And it’s not just words.
Consider that in a matter of months, the US will be overtaken by China as the world’s largest economy.
Not to mention, the total combined GDPs of China, India, Russia, and Brazil are roughly the same as the US and EU combined.
Just as the US was the biggest player back in 1944, China is the biggest player today. So it seems clear that the renminbi will become a critical component of a new financial system.
The renminbi already has experienced rapid growth as a dollar alternative for trade; in May, cross-border settlement surged 52% from the year prior.
Renminbi settlement banks are being set up from London to Canada, and the central banks of both France and Luxembourg have signed agreements for renminbi clearing.
There have already been numerous Western companies (like McDonalds) that have issued renminbi-denominated bonds.
And even the provincial government of British Columbia issued a renminbi bond earlier this year. It was a whopping five times oversubscribed.
I’d expect within the next 2-3 years we’ll start seeing trade settlement in renminbi, even when none of the parties are in China.
Today, for example, a transaction between a Paraguayan merchant and a company in Angola will likely settle in US dollars.
Soon, I think we’ll start seeing that transaction done in renminbi. And once that happens, you’ll know it’s game over for the dollar.
Shortly after, national governments in western countries will issue renminbi bonds (perhaps Greece or Portugal will be first). And eventually, even the US government itself.
Today, 70 years after Bretton Woods, leaders from China, Russia, India, Brazil, South Africa, and several other nations are hard at work in Fortaleza, Brazil creating a new development bank that will compete against the US-controlled World Bank.
This is a major step in an obvious trend towards a new financial system. Every shred of objective data is SCREAMING for this to happen.
It’s a different world. Everyone realizes it except for the US government, which is still living in the past where they’re #1 and get to call all the shots.
The consequences of missing this boat are enormous, and it’s going to be a rude awakening for anyone not paying attention.

From: Michael Gaddy [mailto:email@example.com]
“The whole conspiracy idea is cockeyed. We had orders to obey the head of state. We weren’t a band of criminals meeting in the woods in the dead of night to plan mass murders…” ~Hermann Goering, 1 May 1946 (Committed suicide to avoid hanging)
“I was given this assignment which I could not refuse–and besides, I did everything possible to treat [the foreign slave laborers] well.” ~Fritz Saukel , 23 February 1946 (Hanged for crimes against humanity)
“I don’t see how they can fail to recognize a soldier’s obligation to obey orders. That’s the code I’ve live by all my life.” ~Alfred Jodl, 1 November 1945 (Hanged for crimes committed)
I fully understand why people get very defensive whenever any acts by supposedly good Americans are compared to Hitler and Nazi Germany, but when considering the rapid descent into abject Socialism in this country during the past 12-14 years, could it be time to take the gloves off and realize we seem to be following in the footprints of history?
Oh, we are nothing like the Nazi’s—I hear the chorus now. BUT—the president can order the death or imprisonment of an American Citizen without a trial. (National Defense Authorization Act-2012) We have socialized medicine. (Obamacare and Dubya Bush’s Part D Medicare Plan) Our Bill of Rights has been eviscerated. (Patriot Act, Department of Homeland Security) Please name one of the above that in any way conflicts with the principles of Nazi Germany.
Is it just coincidence that Adolf Hitler used the term “protect the Homeland” in the speech when he created the Gestapo and George W. Bush used the exact same phrase in his news conference after 9/11? Good arguments could be made on both sides I am sure.
The crucial issue here is the failed concept prevailing among many in our country that whatever the government says, whether they say it through enacted legislation or regulation by some government bureaucracy, it is to be treated as gospel and obeyed without discussion. Whether we are like Nazi Germany or rapidly getting there, the basic premise that government is the almighty is the vehicle which leads to destruction of Liberty and Individual Sovereignty and the advent of heinous crimes by the government.
We have a local representative here in Colorado who has stated publicly that “no law is unconstitutional until the Supreme Court says it is.” We also have a candidate for Sheriff who says that all laws that emanate from the government will be enforced should he become Sheriff. Both happen to be Republicans, but, for the sake of brevity, we shall skip over a broad discussion of that point in this offering.
To believe that the people who created our government through our states were to become its slaves and subject to its every whim would have been a real surprise to our ancestors who voted in the various State Ratification Conventions to approve this form of government, for they were told if they voted to ratify our Constitution, the exact opposite would be true.
The real question is: do those who advocate the government must be obeyed regardless of the law passed, or regulation written, do so from a true philosophical belief or from sheer ignorance of the Constitutional principles they have sworn to “uphold and defend from all enemies, foreign and domestic?” How does one in good conscience take a sacred oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights and then claim they will uphold, defend and enforce any law passed by government? Another question is: do they have a working knowledge of the Constitution that would enable them to know the difference?
I will offer below, as a classic example of a person holding a very important position in government, publicly claiming they are not qualified for the job they were elected to, while all the while being too ignorant to know they are making such a confession publicly. First, though, let’s take a look at the office of Sheriff here in Colorado.
The Office of Sheriff in Colorado is created by our Constitution. Colo. Const., art. XIV, sect. 8. The Constitution does not enumerate particular duties of Sheriffs. Colorado statutes do specify various duties for Sheriffs, most of which are restatements of the Sheriffs’ traditional common law powers and duties. For example: “to keep and preserve the peace in their respective counties, and to quiet and suppress all affrays, riots, and unlawful assemblies and insurrections”; to “act as fire warden of his or her respective county”; to “appoint some proper person undersheriff”; and so on. Colorado Revised Statutes sect. 30-10-501 et seq. Nothing in the list of statutory duties requires Sheriffs to enforce every state statute or any federal law for that matter.
In Colorado, our Sheriff’s take a very simple oath of office:
“I, …….., do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of Colorado, the Ordinances of …….. County and that I will faithfully perform the duties of the Office of County Sheriff, of the County of …….., State of Colorado, upon which I enter.”
This oath is in the form required by the Colorado Constitution, Article XII, sect. 8. which reads as follows:
“Every civil officer, except members of the general assembly and such inferior officers as may be by law exempted, shall, before he enters upon the duties of his office, take and subscribe an oath or affirmation to support the constitution of the United States and of the state of Colorado, and to faithfully perform the duties of the office upon which he shall be about to enter.”
There is absolutely not to be found in the Oath of Office or the Articles of the Colorado Constitution anything that states the Sheriff must uphold and defend the laws of the state of Colorado or the United States. Could it be that since the Sheriff swears to uphold and defend the Constitutions of Colorado and the US, that that covers any and all laws that are created “in pursuance” of the constitutions, and the occupant of the office of Sheriff is presumed to have a working knowledge of both in order to determine if those laws are indeed constitutional? Is not each person who takes that solemn oath not equally responsible for assuring to those whom they serve a strict adherence to the principles of those documents and to “uphold and defend” them against any unconstitutional edicts submitted by either government? Is it possible to be faithful to one’s oath while at the same time enforcing clearly unconstitutional laws?
Here are excerpts of a letter written by a sitting Sheriff of Colorado (not from our county) in January of 2013, relative to the issues of the Second Amendment; written on official county letterhead, displaying his ignorance of his sacred oath and a proud (to him) display of sufficient evidence to illustrate his incompetence for the office of public trust he holds. (My comments in italics)
“Although I have great respect and admiration for each of my colleague sheriffs and police chiefs across the country, I take exception with the handful of public servants who have suggested that they would reject enforcement of any “unconstitutional mandates,” specifically related to the Second Amendment.” (How can one have a valid, enforceable law that contradicts the Constitution?)
“If an issue were to be arbitrarily deemed “unconstitutional,” the decision to curtail further enforcement responsibilities would be in direct conflict with the concept of the balance of powers, as defined by our founders.” (Ouch! Perhaps the good sheriff has never heard of one Thomas Jefferson, who stated: “My construction of the Constitution is… that each department is truly independent of the others and has an equal right to decide for itself what is the meaning of the Constitution in the cases submitted to its action…” Perhaps that is why they all take an oath to uphold and defend.”)
“Public safety professionals serving in the executive branch, do not have the constitutional authority, responsibility, and in most cases, the credentials to determine the constitutionality of any issue.” (Well, Sheriff, if you do not possess the authority, responsibility or the credentials to determine the “constitutionality” of any issue, you should immediately resign, for in your statement you admit to having little to no knowledge of the documents you swore to “uphold and defend.” Such knowledge would prepare you to possess the authority, responsibility and certainly the credentials which you wear on your uniform shirt, to determine the constitutionality of any act.” Your statement is a bold admission you do not have the knowledge necessary to protect the rights of those who pay your salary.)
“The authority and responsibility to determine the legality and/or the constitutionality of a matter is to be accomplished by the judicial branch, as clearly defined in the Constitution.” (Gosh, Sheriff, sure do wish you would have cited chapter and verse on this bold but incorrect assertion. It would appear your lack of knowledge is quite extensive. Again from Mr. Jefferson: “Nothing in the Constitution has given [the judges] a right to decide for the Executive, more than to the Executive to decide for them. Both magistrates are equally independent in the sphere of action assigned to them.” And “To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy…The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves.”
And finally the Sheriff’s coup de grace: – “WE ARE A NATION OF LAWS.” (Factually, our founders never intended for this to be a nation, for our decisions are made through representatives and not in the aggregate, which is the very definition of a “Nation.” So, Sheriff, you are wrong on that count, and also we are not an anything “of laws.” We are a country with a Constitution and a Bill of Rights which defines what is and what is not constitutional. Laws do not decide for themselves if they are valid.”
If you are looking for a Sheriff like the one who wrote the above, there is one available on the ballot in November; one with an (R) beside his name. If you are looking for a Sheriff who understands his obligations to protect the rights of the people and also understands the gravity of the Oath of Office, you will be forced to make another choice.
I would remind you that Nazi Germany was a nation of laws; everything that Hitler did was within the laws of Germany at the time, and offer this quote from Jeremy Locke’s “The End of All Evil.”
“Law is a weapon. It is used by evil to attack its prey. Whether in the name of duty to king, loyalty to state, or rule of law, law is the weapon used to extort and control. Culture upholds the nobility of law. Culture teaches that law is proper and good. It never questions who wrote the law; tyrant and brother are the same. Culture never questions whether or not the law is right. You are to obey no matter what it says. In this fashion, law is a powerful weapon to be used against you. All principalities create volumes of laws that take lifetimes to understand and armies of lawyers to manipulate. All of these things are weapons in the hands of the powerful, which they will use at your expense.
Law holds value only to those who create it, and only because your culture demands that you obey it. The purest invitation to tyranny is your commitment to obey law regardless of what it says. Against you, the law becomes the perfect weapon. Whomever controls the law, controls you. Your worth is measured by the extent of your obedience.” (Emphasis added)
When anyone tells you that the “Law” must be obeyed, and will be enforced, please remember that there IS a choice: Liberty, or Tyranny and blind obedience; you decide. Should you decide to support the party favorite and the candidate endorsed by the local, socialist, bird cage liner, I take this opportunity to remind you of the words of Samuel Adams: “May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget ye were our countrymen.”
“Most human beings only think they want freedom. In truth they yearn for the bondage of social order, rigid laws, materialism. The only freedom man really wants, is the freedom to become comfortable.”
“Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day . . . . I believe it [human condition] susceptible of much improvement, and most of all, in matters of government and religion; and that the diffusion of knowledge among the people is to be the instrument by which it is effected.” Thomas Jefferson, April 24, 1816 (to Dupont de Nemours)

DUE TO MOLLY PASSING AWAY ON 07 17 14, I’M TAKING SOME TIME OFF TO REFLECT ON THE JOYS AND GRIEF OF SHARING OUR LIVES WITH PETS.
It all began 13.5 years ago when a friend wanted me to take one of a recent liter his dog had burdened him with. I finally relented because my wife was still in grief over the death of our last dog and I thought this would help her adjust.
Little did I know when I went to pick her out that she was the only one left and the runt of the litter. We went out to the barn and searched around, but no puppy was to be found, so we were headed back to the house and I saw a large dog food bag in the grass that the pups had dragged out and in spite of there being no wind it was moving. I walked over to it and taped it with my foot only to be greeted with the most ferocious growl I had ever heard. Peeping inside I saw this tiny little Jack Russell – Chihuahua mix and my heart seemed to leap inside me as my mind said, That is the most beautiful puppy I’ve ever seen. She looked like a squirrel that had swallowed a softball!
Being the runt and looking nothing like the rest of the litter, this little fireball was accustomed to fighting for her food and the contents of that bag was hers and hers alone.
I picked her up and off we went to the vet for a stomach pumping job. The vet however said it was no big deal and she would soon go to sleep and wake up hungry again. He was correct to a fault, because this little pup woke up starving the rest of her life, and we’re talking 4am feeding time for the next 13.5 years. It’s a good thing I have always been an early riser because my wife sleeps like a dead woman till 8am.
That aside, she felt the same instant affection I did when I brought her home. We debated on a name and soon decided on Molly, and by then she was as hooked as I was. I will brag a little here and tell you this little dog never lacked anything she wanted and spent the next week sleeping on my chest every night. Finally, I went to the store and bought her a day bed of her own with much emphasis on (HER OWN) because she would jump in and growl like a lion any time anyone (even us) would lay a hand on it, right up to the day she died. Her food bowl was also a dangerous thing to touch, even empty! At bed time when she finally got big enough for it to be safe, I let her share my bed the rest of her life.
Other than that, she was the most loving dog in the world. However, she had no use for anyone else but us, except for a neighbor friend who is well over six feet tall and very partial to small dogs. This gentle giant was the only person she would let touch her except us.
Soon she decided that the door bell was an alarm and would go ballistic every time it sounded, including any door bell on TV that happened to ring. She would run to the door and scare the pants off most people when I opened the inner door. She never got close to anyone but she would raise hell until I told her to shut up. Mind you this little twerp was not much bigger than a squirrel back then. Going outside was of no interest to her because she was so intent on guarding the inside.
It was not long until my wife brought home a little green rubber dog toy that looked like a fat spider and squeaked when squeezed. When ever she decided to go find a dark place to hide and snooze, we would squeeze the spider and here she would come, full speed ahead. She instinctively retrieved it when I would toss it around the house, and proudly lay it at my feet. She was soon to show that she was the smartest dog ever to walk the earth as far as we were concerned, and would pick it up and walk around and around the house looking for a place to hide the spider so she could snooze undisturbed.
I could write a huge volume of the times and trials of Molly; but this, is not the place to show so much sentiment. Needless to say, this little dog wound us around her paw and stole our hearts and full attention her entire life.
She gave us 13.5 years of unspeakable joy, and three weeks of unspeakable fear as her enlarged heart and an intestinal infection gradually made her totally lethargic. After the vet was sure she had expired he left us alone for a while and returned with her file and told us on her first checkup she weighted 2.12 lbs. Other than the surgeon who removed part of a disc in her neck, he was the only vet she ever had, and we were always amazed at how she would tolerate his exams when we knew she would bite the crap out of us if we tried. I have the scars to prove it, but never once felt any serious anger. She had her own sense of dignity, and knew how to protect it. God bless her!
In a world as screwed up as ours is, every human being should have this experience, because real soul shaking grief will soften the hardest of hearts and strengthen the soft ones. However, not hearing those little claws clicking on the floor behind me as I move around the house is something I will never get used to. I have never given this kind of consideration, permissiveness, attention, and love to any other animal, and damn few humans. What an injustice it is that she is dead, and OBUMA is still alive and healthy! Just imagine that in a few short years, Americans may be eating their pets rather than starve. All because they are too chicken shit to rebel.
REST IN PEACE MY LOVE

Overkill? Huge show of force all to catch one bad guy with a laptop
The Department of Homeland Security’s militarized invasion of a small town in Illinois was not in response to a gang of dangerous drug dealers or an armed assailant, but in order to bust a single man accused of downloading indecent images to his home computer.
As we reported last week, federal agents swarmed the town of Livingston, IL., population 850, in an unannounced show of force that culminated in a local school field being used as a staging ground for a phalanx of heavy duty equipment and weaponry.
The school superintendent was given no notice of the feds’ decision to use school land and local residents told news channel KTVI that the sudden sight of armored SWAT vehicles made them nervous.
With authorities initially refusing to explain the reason behind the show of force, it later emerged that a raid had been carried out on a house three miles away in order to apprehend Robert E. Godsey, who is being charged with, “receipt, possession and distribution of visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.”
While nobody is defending Godsey – an obviously sick individual who should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law – questions will undoubtedly swirl as to why the federal government spent so many resources on assembling a small army in order to apprehend one individual who didn’t have a history of violence.
Was one armed SWAT team not enough to bust Godsey? Amidst a national debate over the DHS’ bloated budget, why were two helicopters, including a Black Hawk, two armored vehicles, a DHS unified command post truck and Border Patrol agents required to conduct an operation to catch one bad guy?
When asked about why such a massive display of force was necessary, Jim Porter, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Illinois, offered a glib justification, stating, “It’s better to be over-prepared.”
That response will do little to dampen concerns that the huge show of force was another indication of how the federal government is militarizing its law enforcement response in order to acclimate Americans to viewing martial law-style tactics as part of the new normal.
A recent ACLU investigation into the issue of increasingly militarized domestic law enforcement operations decried the fact that American neighborhoods are turning into warzones as SWAT tactics become more brutal, causing an increase in deaths, injuries and property damage.

When the special interests who created and direct the agenda of the European Union disagree with member states, the true nature of this supranational enterprise becomes painfully apparent – one of dictatorial special interests pursing regional policy that benefits none of its individual member states. No example of this can be clearer than the dispute that has emerged over the construction of Russia’s South Stream natural gas pipeline set to run through Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, and Italy.
The pipeline produces a large number of benefits for each of the nations it passes through, as well as for energy markets on either end of the pipeline. For the people and governments of these nations set to benefit most from the pipeline, the deal is an attractive, long-term investment. For the special interests that have created and currently direct the EU – on the other hand – it poses as a direct threat to their designs of continued expansion and corporate-financier hegemony beyond the collective borders of today’s EU.
For the hegemon, coexistence and collaboration are not options – thus the benefits of the South Stream pipeline escape them. Instead, these hegemonic special interests seek to control their own pipeline and energy markets on either side of it, and this can be seen developing along several fronts including the Southern Corridor Project, beginning in Azerbaijan along the Caspian Sea.
Energy and foreign policy expert Sinan Ulgen of the US government and corporate-financier funded Carnegie Europe think-tank complained about the disparity between the EU Commission’s stance, and that of individual EU member states in an Anadolu Agency (AA) article titled, “Russian South Stream gas pipeline divides EU,” stating:
“…the EU’s main concern about South Stream is that the project would increase its dependence on Russian gas. Last year a third of its consumed gas was supplied by Russia.
Additionally the AA article would state:
While the European Commission opposes Russia’s South Stream gas pipeline project, certain EU countries like Austria and Italy continue to openly support the world’s most expensive pipeline project, which aims to transport Russian gas by bypassing Ukraine.
For the last two years, Russia has signed bilateral agreements with Italy, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Greece, Slovenia, Austria and Croatia for the construction of the South Stream gas pipeline, which is estimated to cost nearly US$40 billion according to the Moscow Times. Gazprom recently announced however that it was abandoning construction of the Italian portion of the pipeline.
These agreements were deemed a breach of EU anti-trust law by the European Commission in December. And, in April, following the annexation of the Crimean peninsula by Russia, the European Parliament voted for the South Stream project to be stopped.
AA would also cite another corporate-financier funded think tank, Chatham House – also complaining about EU members pursuing their own interests in contradiction to the EU Commission’s dictates. The unelected EU Commission appears to be pursing its own extraterritorial geopolitical pursuits ahead of those of the individual member states and their respective populations. That corporate-financier funded “think tanks” are focused on this “divide” and championing the EU Commission’s agenda over that of the individual EU members it allegedly represents fully exposes the EU for what it truly is, a dysfunctional supranational dictatorship.
And what is done in the name of the EU by its institutions like the EU Commission, which admittedly does not represent the best interests or desires of those it claims to represent, unfortunately and perhaps unfairly reflects on the EU as a whole. For example, and as part of the energy debate, the current EU support of the regime occupying Kiev, Ukraine, taints all of Europe, even as many EU member states attempt to move cautiously or even in opposition to the greater agenda the EU Commission and others are pursuing.
While the EU promotes itself as a bastion of freedom, stability, and prosperity, it appears increasingly more like a hegemonic bloc, dictating to, rather than acting as a representative of, the European people. The slogan “Toward a Europe Whole and Free” rings hollow when the EU Commission begins dictating policy to individual states, and curtailing progress that benefits both individual nations and their people.
The EU, in this light, appears more of an autocratic oligarchical consolidation of regional power and resources, not a democratic collaboration between nations. A slogan like “Toward a Europe Whole and Free” appears then to represent Europe, but only from the perspective of special interests seeking to loot the region collectively, rather than nation-by-nation. The dysfunction and dictatorial nature of the EU Commission and other apparatuses within the supranational bloc serve as a cautionary example for other nations seeking to construct their own alliances – from Asia’s ASEAN-AEC (Asian Economic Community), to regional alliances between Russia, China and with nations along their peripheries.
Alliances that include obligations that usurp national sovereignty are not alliances at all, they are hegemonic infiltration by special interests who would rather see a village place their valuables in a single safe for them to crack and loot, rather than take the time and trouble to rob each individual home. Europe must decide whether it will continue along a path of internal conflict with its alleged EU representatives tainting their collective populations, cultures, and histories, or reform the EU into an institution that allows collaboration and national sovereignty to exist in tandem.

As the July 7 protest in Murrieta regarding immigration, and the potential of more bus loads of diseased people being shipped to the Border Patrol Station for processing on Madison Avenue loomed, so did the potential of the federal government forcing its will upon the City of Murrieta with riot personnel.
The rumor made its way to Breitbart.com, and fears of a blood-bath emerged throughout the community, and throughout the country. I discounted the rumor as merely a remote possibility, and a rumor that may have been leaked by the federal government by design.
Fear is the way this administration prefers to rule.
The White House believes that federal supremacy is supreme, that all actions and laws of the federal government rule over any actions of legislation of the lower governments, from the States, all the way down to the cities. Murrieta, in the opinion of the President, must bend to the will of the federal government, or suffer the consequences of daring to stand in opposition.
Resistance is futile.
As I have stated in my book, 25 Myths of the United States Constitution, only federal laws and actions constitutionally supported are supreme. Laws and actions that are not within the authorities granted by the United States Constitution cannot be supreme over the States since those actions or pieces of legislation are illegal in the first place.
The founders created a system of checks and balances for a reason, and those reasons were specifically to stop the federal government from imposing its agenda on lower governments as we are seeing now here in Murrieta, and elsewhere around the country.
Racial division in order to allow the federal government to force its will on our community, and ultimately, the entire country
The current administration rejects the principles of the United States Constitution. President Obama claims to be a constitutional professor, and constitutional lawyer, but what he did was lecture on the 14th Amendment, and more specifically, how to use it to create racial division. That is what is happening in Murrieta. Racial division in order to allow the federal government to force its will on our community, and ultimately, the entire country. The truth of the strategy has been shielded by the cries of racism.
In history, authoritarian governments use fear to force the issue. However, fear is often considered by tyrants to be best applied not by actual action, but by the threat of the action. What winds up happening, however, is that the populace becomes resistant to the threats, so the authoritarian system then believes it must use force to force the issue. In other words, we may be seeing a progression similar to the American Revolution, where the early protests were peaceful until one resulted in shots fired in Boston, commonly referred to as the Boston Massacre, and then after Baker Street the progression eventually led to Lexington Green when the British came for our guns, and ultimately to an all out war. Am I saying that I expect this to develop into a bloody war between the people and the federal government? I hope not. But the progression currently in place, and the scare tactics being used by the federal government, certainly suggests that such a violent progression perpetrated by the federal government could be a possibility.

If the reader has been reading articles on this site for some time, then you know that the Constitution was born dead, as a surreptitious method of gaining the people’s support because they were told and believed that it would protect America from tyranny arising in the Federal Government at a later time. However, they were not told that the Banking Cartel (The Vatican’s henchmen) had their men in the original group of framers, who were not authorized to construct a New Constitution for America that would eventually be incorporated. If you refuse to believe this, then please tell me how we got in this mess. The constitution forbids it, and that’s how you were fooled. So now we are stuck with a tyrannical for profit Corporation that rules by force, and only an educated and courage’s population willing to die for their freedom, and construct a new, legal, republic, will prevail. What you don’t know can kill you!
LEGAL GOVERNANCE IS DETERMINED BY MEN OF COURAGE WHO WILL NOT SUBMIT TO TYRANNY. ALL OTHER FORMS OF GOVERNANCE ARE DESPOTIC GROUPS OF LIARS, THIEVES, AND MURDERERS, RULING OVER A COUNTRY OF COWARDS BY FORCE ALONE.

The USA is in the failure phase of Empire-USA. As I note in my analysis of Empires they ALL suffer failure due to; 1) spending and debt cost for the wars needed to grow and maintain the empire, 2) cost of social welfare and business subsidies to keep the people and business managers happy (and help keep the ‘leaders’ in power), and 3) social decadence due to reliance on government welfare which leads to riots if they are reduced or ended (especially food). Spending and debt for the current “Welfare-Warfare State’ has been at dangerous levels since the 1980s. The ‘hockey stick; increase started in 1971 when Nixon cancelled the dollar’s link to gold. Since then, billions (now trillions) of new dollars were created to pay bills, which creates ‘monetary inflation’ and reduces the value of the US Dollar (USD).
This fake money has distorted our economy, and excessive imports (paid with newly printed dollars) have caused jobs and factories to be ‘off-shored’. Jobless folks are nearing the riot stage as their savings and patience disappear. Sensing this, the Dept. of Homeland Security, and other parts of federal, state and local governments; including the army and police, have stocked-up on guns, ammo, and armored vehicles to fight rioting citizens. It would be better if the governments stopped the riots by not doing the harm described below! The ‘leaders’ prefer to brand complainers as ‘terrorists, traitors, etc.’ when they complain about illegal and immoral government acts at home and abroad. I call them Patriots for seeking honest, legal, and moral government. Secrets about illegal acts should be exposed, not protected!
I list below some of the key indicators that we are in decline, will cease being the top world power, and just be ‘a medium power’ like prior major powers England, France, Spain, and Russia. Most activists agree that China will replace us in our economic, monetary and military dominance.
1. War: As shown in my article (http://www.activistpost.com/2010/12/13-lies-abbreviated-history-of-us.html#more) all of our wars since the 1776 Revolution have been for economic, political and military gains, not defense, and were started on lies by the President. The problems and causes of our decline discussed in my Sep. 5, 2013 article (http://www.activistpost.com/2013/09/empire-usa-is-crashing.html#more ) have gotten worse, as predicted, and are discussed below.
2. The World’s Reserve Currency: Worldwide dominance of the USD started after WW1 (the British pound declined), and escalated with the Bretton Woods world monetary agreement in 1944, which made the USD the ‘official’ world reserve currency, with gold set at a fixed value of $35 troy ounce. The world’s reserve currency is defined as; 1) banks hold it as their reserves; good as gold, and 2) most international transactions use it (USD was 70%, now 60%; yen, Swiss franc, and Euro have most of the rest) as a convenience (saves having many types of currency on hand). Thus, as issuer of the world’s primary reserve currency, we are the only nation that can pay its’ bills with newly created money. Charles De Gaulle called it our ‘exorbitant privilege’. Since 1974, when Kissinger made a deal with the Saudis, all oil has been paid with USD (called ‘petrodollars’) which has provided support for our fiat USD (no redemption for gold since 1971), but that support, and thus the purchasing power of the USD is fading as nations tire of dealing with the declining value and political rules of the USD.
3. FATCA: A recent big jab was the start of our ‘Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act’ (FATCA) on July 1, 2014 (and more in July, 2015), which seeks to capture unpaid taxes from US citizens abroad, and imposes a lot of rules, reports, and possible fines, on foreign banks, How arrogant! Many banks are closing accounts of US citizens. They, and private firms, are also working with other nations to use their own currencies to avoid US dominance. This loss of demand for the USD will further reduce it’s purchasing power.
4. Spending and Debt: Politicians, especially those running empires, need lots of money to pay for wars and benefits to keep business managers (campaign donors) and voters happy. Dictators don’t need campaign donations, but they often fail due to riots, or hanging, by angry citizens. Our spending requires massive borrowing, and creation of new money (helped by item 2 above), to pay our bills at home and abroad. Our over $17 trillion in ‘admitted’ debt (plus unfunded liabilities such as pensions and healthcare, adding about $ 140 tn more!) exceeds our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by about 5%, which is considered dangerous by any economist. The net interest (after interest income) on our debt is over $500 bill. per year and will soar to disastrous levels when (not if ) interest rates increase from our current fake low (1% area) levels.
Summary: How to protect yourself from the above decline: Most Investment Advisors continue to use traditional diversification of stocks, bonds, annuities, maybe some real estate, and ALL are denominated in the falling USD! I wrote this article (http://www.activistpost.com/2013/07/new-factors-in-personal-financial.html#more) to show there are two new elements of diversification; namely currency and legal jurisdiction (nation). Leaving the USD currency and jurisdiction is new to most investors, so requires thought and help. Look at: (http://www.activistpost.com/2014/01/internationalize-to-protect-and-grow.html) for information on how to Internationalize your assets. It will be interesting. Time may be short to avoid the USD collapse, and new US laws that can restrict access to your assets, add more taxes, and even confiscate them! Feel free to contact me at redickD@aol.com, or 608-469-8922 if you have questions. I can supply information, but not investment advice.
There is also decline is in the morals of our citizens and leaders. For example it is considered OK by most people to engage in ‘gang-theft-by-vote’, known as ‘tax the rich’, to force ‘others’ to pay for your own benefits (subsidized health care and pensions, ‘free’ K-12 education, unemployment insurance, etc.). They use terms like ‘fair share’ and ‘common good’ to justify the forced charity! Prior to FDR starting social security in 1935, and LBJ starting Medicare in 1965, most people were careful to maintain good relations with friends, family, and the community, because they might need help someday. This meant being honest, polite, etc. It also affected personal management of health care as to smoking, alcohol, drugs, and obesity. Now that the government gives people all types of benefits, people have less incentive to be ‘respectable’, and considerate of others. ‘Do your own thing’ and ‘get used to it’ were retorts that started in the 1960s. The need for, and pride in, ‘personal responsibility’ has declined. Now instead of 5 or 10% of our population receiving benefits (largely paid-for by others), we have well over 50% at least partly relying on the government!
Here are a few examples of our cultural decline.
1. Public Morals: In addition to more of traditional immorality such as lying, theft, immodesty, and fraud, we see; 1) more profanity and sex on TV (including family-watching hours; at least the French show it after 10pm), and 2) more fighting and excessive violence in pro sports. It used to be limited to ice hockey, but now we see fights in baseball, and basketball.
2. Personal Appearance
Obesity: Since the 1970s we have seen obesity expand (no pun) in both children and adults. The rapid increase (as to percent of population, and inches of fat) is not just caused by careless over-eating, but also because high-fructose corn syrup, which tends to produce fat, was adopted by bakeries and soft-drink firms because it is now cheaper than traditional sucrose. It is cheaper for two reasons; 1) the government subsidizes farmers to grow corn for production of ethanol fuel, and some is used to produce corn syrup, which is high in fructose, and 2) political import tariffs to increase profits (ie, charge US customers more) of our domestic growers of sugar-cane, and sugar-beets (and get their campaign donations), have made sucrose about twice the world price. This is a classic case of ‘unintended consequences’ of government meddling, and shows no signs of being terminated (too many donations and votes at stake).
Tattoos and Metal: Widespread (as to both percent of population and body!) wearing of; 1) tattoos and 2) metal pins and rings pierced in any part of one’s body, both started in the 1980s. These body deformations were once considered low-class, or embarrassing. I view this conduct as signs that more people don’t care what others think of them because it doesn’t matter. Of course ‘times change’ (no more maternity dresses, etc.), but I say these are examples of decline. People now do more weird things because it doesn’t matter much what others think of you!
I could add many more items, but I hope the above information makes the point: ‘We are a failing empire in both the economic and moral sense’. I show nine links below for articles on this subject by authors I respect. I hope the above article changes the habits of a few people and politicians. Let it be your guide in working and voting for good candidates in the big election coming in Nov-2016!

Thomas Jefferson, the author of America’s July 4, 1776 Declaration of Secession from the British empire, was a lifelong advocate of both the voluntary union of the free, independent, and sovereign states, and of the right of secession. “If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union or to change its republican form,” he said in his first inaugural address in 1801, “let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left to combat it.”
In a January 29, 1804 letter to Dr. Joseph Priestley, who had asked Jefferson his opinion of the New England secession movement that was gaining momentum, he wrote: “Whether we remain in one confederacy, or form into Atlantic and Mississippi confederacies, I believe not very important to the happiness of either part. Those of the western confederacy will be as much our children & descendants as those of the eastern . . . and did I now foresee a separation at some future day, yet should feel the duty & the desire to promote the western interests as zealously as the eastern, doing all the good for both portions of our future family…” Jefferson offered the same opinion to John C. Breckinridge on August 12, 1803 when New Englanders were threatening secession after the Louisiana purchase. If there were a “separation,” he wrote, “God bless them both & keep them in the union if it be for their good, but separate them, if it be better.”
Everyone understood that the union of the states was voluntary and that, as Virginia, Rhode Island, and New York stated in their constitutional ratification documents, each state had a right to withdraw from the union at some future date if that union became harmful to its interests. So when New Englanders began plotting secession barely twenty years after the end of the American Revolution, their leader, Massachusetts Senator Timothy Pickering (who was also George Washington’s secretary of war and secretary of state) stated that “the principles of our Revolution point to the remedy – a separation. That this can be accomplished without spilling one drop of blood, I have little doubt” (In Henry Adams, editor, Documents Relating to New-England Federalism, 1800-1815, p. 338). The New England plot to secede from the union culminated in the Hartford Secession Convention of 1814, where they ultimately decided to remain in the union and to try to dominate it politically instead. (They of course succeeded beyond their wildest dreams, beginning in April of 1865 up to the present day.)
John Quincy Adams, the quintessential New England Yankee, echoed these Jeffersonian sentiments in an 1839 speech in which he said that if different states or groups of states came into irrepressible conflict, then that “will be the time for reverting to the precedents which occurred at the formation and adoption of the Constitution, to form again a more perfect union by dissolving that which could no longer bind, and to leave the separated parts to be reunited by the law of political gravitation…” (John Quincy Adams,>The Jubilee of the Constitution, 1939, pp. 66-69).
There is a long history of American newspapers endorsing the Jeffersonian secessionist tradition. The following are just a few examples.
The Bangor, Maine Daily Union once editorialized that the union of Maine with the other states “rests and depends for its continuance on the free consent and will of the sovereign people of each. When that consent and will is withdrawn on either part, their Union is gone, and no power exterior to the withdrawing [state] can ever restore it.” Moreover, a state can never be a true equal member of the American union if forced into it by military aggression, the Maine editors wrote.
“A war … is a thousand times worse evil than the loss of a State, or a dozen States” the Indianapolis Daily Journal once wrote. “The very freedom claimed by every individual citizen, precludes the idea of compulsory association, as individuals, as communities, or as States,” wrote the Kenosha, Wisconsin Democrat. “The very germ of liberty is the right of forming our own governments, enacting our own laws, and choosing or own political associates … The right of secession inheres to the people of every sovereign state.”
Using violence to force any state to remain in the union, once said the New York Journal of Commerce, would “change our government from a voluntary one, in which the people are sovereigns, to a despotism” where one part of the people are “slaves.” The Washington (D.C.) Constitution concurred, calling a coerced union held together at gunpoint (like the Soviet Union, for instance) “the extreme of wickedness and the acme of folly.”
“The great principle embodied by Jefferson in the Declaration of American Independence, that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed,” the New York Daily Tribune once wrote, “is sound and just,” so that if any state wanted to secede peacefully from the union, it has “a clear moral right to do so.”
A union maintained by military force, Soviet style, would be “mad and Quixotic” as well as “tyrannical and unjust” and “worse than a mockery,” editorialized the Trenton (N.J.) True American. Echoing Jefferson’s letter to John C. Breckinridge, the Cincinnati Daily Commercial once editorialized that “there is room for several flourishing nations on this continent; and the sun will shine brightly and the rivers run as clear” if one or more states were to peacefully secede.
All of these Northern state editorials were published in the first three months of 1861 and are published in Howard Cecil Perkins, editor, Northern Editorials on Secession (Gloucester, Mass.: 1964). They illustrate how the truths penned by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence — that the states were considered to be free, independent, and sovereign in the same sense that England and France were; that the union was voluntary; that using invasion, bloodshed, and mass murder to force a state into the union would be an abomination and a universal moral outrage; and that a free society is required to revere freedom of association — were still alive and well until April of 1865 when the Lincoln regime invented and adopted the novel new theory that: 1) the states were never sovereign; 2) the union was not voluntary; and 3) the federal government had the “right” to prove that propositions 1 and 2 are right by means murdering hundreds of thousands of fellow citizens by waging total war on the entire civilian population of the Southern states, bombing and burning its cities and towns into a smoldering ruin, and calling it all “the glory of the coming of the Lord.”

For those who have read this essay, does your heart not expand with the lust for freedom? Does the adrenalin of freedom not make you light headed? Can any one deny that this is what we need to enforce on the corporate scumbags that rule our country? Yes I agree there would be many problems to solve if America was not a slave state to the Banksters, but how little confidence would one have to not pursue it? Who care’s if the Vatican has title from the Dead King of England. We did not have a problem when we thought we were taking it by force. SO WHAT’S WRONG WITH DOING IT RIGHT THIS TIME? For those who have not been educated yet, here is the real history of America.
The King of England had seeded America, along with All the Kings holdings and power to the Pope to recover his soul for the sin of Divorce. The Banksters were hired by the Pope to control the Governments, and now we are sucking hind tit as slaves to the corporations that have managed to control the Government. America is run as a profit producing business as witnessed by all the laws they use to fine us. It’s all one huge extortion racket that has expanded globally. Pretty soon we will have to get a permit to take a crap. Hint, Never go through an air-port without some change in your pocket, just in case Nature Calls.

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself…Almost inevitably, he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable.”—H.L. Mencken, American journalist.
It’s vogue, trendy and appropriate to look to dystopian literature as a harbinger of what we’re experiencing at the hands of the government. Certainly, George Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm have much to say about government tyranny, corruption, and control, as does Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and Philip K. Dick’s Minority Report. Yet there are also older, simpler, more timeless stories—folk tales and fairy tales—that speak just as powerfully to the follies and foibles in our nature as citizens and rulers alike that give rise to tyrants and dictatorships.
One such tale, Hans Christian Andersen’s fable of the Emperor’s New Clothes, is a perfect paradigm of life today in the fiefdom that is the American police state, only instead of an imperial president spending money wantonly on lavish vacations, entertainment, and questionable government programs aimed at amassing greater power, Andersen presents us with a vain and thoughtless emperor, concerned only with satisfying his own needs at the expense of his people, even when it means taxing them unmercifully, bankrupting his kingdom, and harshly punishing his people for daring to challenge his edicts.
For those unfamiliar with the tale, the Emperor, a vain peacock of a man, is conned into buying a prohibitively expensive suit of clothes that is supposedly visible only to those who are smart, competent and well-suited to their positions. Surrounded by yes men, professional flatterers and career politicians who fawn, simper and genuflect, the Emperor—arrogant, pompous and oblivious to his nudity—prances through the town in his new suit of clothes until a child dares to voice what everyone else has been thinking but too afraid to say lest they be thought stupid or incompetent: “He isn’t wearing anything at all!”
Much like the people of the Emperor’s kingdom, we, too, have been conned into believing that if we say what we fear, if we dare to suggest that something is indeed “rotten in the state of Denmark,” we will be branded idiots and fools by the bureaucrats, corporate heads, governmental elites and media hotshots who have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo—or who at least are determined to maintain the façade that is the status quo. Yet the truth is staring us in the face just as surely as the fact that the Emperor was wearing no clothes.
Truth #1: The U.S. is on the brink of bankruptcy, as many economists have been warning for some time now, with more than $16 trillion in debts owned by foreign nationals and corporations. As one financial news site reports: “Internationally, the world is fed up with The Fed and the U.S. government’s unabashed debt growth. China, Russia, Iran, India and a host of other countries are establishing trade relationships that are bypassing the U.S. dollar altogether, a move that will soon see the world’s reserve currency lose purchasing power and status. In anticipation of this imminent collapse gold is being hoarded by private and public entities from Berlin to Beijing in an effort to preserve wealth before the Tsunami hits.”
Truth #2: We no longer have a government that is “of the people, for the people and by the people.” What we have now is a feudal monarchy, run by wealthy overlords and financed with the blood, sweat and labor of the underclasses who are kept in check by the increasingly militarized police. This sorry state of affairs is reinforced by a study which found that average citizens have “little or no independent influence” on the policy-making process. A similar study published by thePolitical Research Quarterly revealed that members of the U.S. Senate represent their wealthiest constituents while ignoring those on the bottom rung of the economic ladder.
Truth #3: Far from being a benevolent entity concerned with the well-being of its citizens, whether in matters of health, safety or security, the government is concerned with three things only: power, control and money. As an often quoted adage says, “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” Unfortunately, the master-servant relationship that once had the government answering to “we the people” has been reversed. Government agents now act as if they are the masters and we are the servants. Nowhere is this more evident than in the transformation of police officers from benevolent keepers of the peace to inflexible extensions of the military hyped up on the power of their badge.
Truth #4: Our primary use to the government is as consumers, worker bees and bits of data to be collected, catalogued, controlled, mined for information, and sold to the highest bidder. Working in cahoots with corporations, the government has given itself carte blanche access to our phone calls, emails, bank transactions, physical movements, even our travels on foot or in our cars. Cybersecurity expert Richard Clarke envisions a future where data about every aspect of our lives will be collected and analyzed. Thus, no matter what the U.S. Supreme Court might have said to the contrary, the government no longer needs a warrant to spy on your cell phone activity or anything else for that matter. As theWashington Post recently revealed, 9 out of 10 people caught up in the NSA’s surveillance net had done nothing wrong to justify such intrusions on their privacy. Clearly, the government now operates relatively autonomously, answering only to itself and unbridled by the courts, Congress, the will of the people or the Constitution.
Truth #5: Whatever problems we are grappling with in regards to illegal immigrants flooding over the borders has little to do with the fact that the borders are porous and everything to do with the government’s own questionable agenda. How is it that a government capable of locking down roads, open seas, and air routes is unable to prevent tens of thousands of women and children from crossing into the U.S. illegally? Conveniently, the Obama administration is asking Congress for $3.8 billion in emergency funding to send more immigration judges to the southern border, build additional detention facilities and add border patrol agents. The funds would be managed by the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, State and Health and Human Services, the very same agencies responsible for bringing about a rapid shift into a police state.
Truth #6: The U.S. government is preparing for massive domestic unrest, arising most likely from an economic meltdown. The government has repeatedly made clear its intentions, through its U.S. Army War College report alerting the military to prepare for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States,” through its ongoing military drills in cities across the country, through its profiling of potential homegrown “dissidents” or extremists, and through the proliferation of detention centers being built across the country.
Truth #7: As Gerald Ford warned, “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.” Too often, Americans have fallen prey to the temptation to let the government take care of whatever ails them, whether it be financial concerns, health needs, childcare. As a result, we now find ourselves caught in a Catch-22 situation wherein the government’s so-called solutions to our problems have led to even graver problems. In this way, zero tolerance policies intended to outlaw drugs and weapons in schools result in young children being arrested and kicked out of school for childish behavior such as drawing pictures of soldiers and crying too much; truancy laws intended to keep students in school have resulted in parents being arrested and fined excessively; and zoning laws intended to protect homeowners have been used to prosecute residents who attempt to live off the grid.
Truth #8: The U.S. is following the Nazi blueprint to a “t,” whether through its storm trooper-like police in the form of heavily armed government agents, to its erection of an electronic concentration camp that not only threatens to engulf America but the rest of the world as well via NSA surveillance programs such as Five Eyes. Most damning of all is the Department of Homeland Security’s self-appointed role as a national police force, a.k.a. standing army, the fundamental and final building block for every totalitarian regime that has ever wreaked havoc on humanity. Indeed, just about every nefarious deed, tactic or thuggish policy advanced by the government today can be traced back to the DHS, its police state mindset, and the billions of dollars it distributes to police agencies in the form of grants.
Truth #9: Not only does the U.S. government perpetrate organized, systematic violence on its own citizens, especially those who challenge its authority nonviolently, in the form of SWAT team raids, militarized police, and roaming VIPR checkpoints, but it gets away with these clear violations of the Fourth Amendment because the courts grant them immunity from wrongdoing. Expanding its reach, the U.S. also exports its violence wholesale to other countries through armaments sales and the use of its military as a global police force. Yet no matter how well trained, well equipped and well financed, America cannot police the world. As history shows, military empires, once over extended, inevitably collapse into chaos.
Truth #10: As I make clear in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, the United States of America has become the new battlefield. In fact, the only real war being fought by the U.S. government today is the war on the American people, and it is being waged with deadly weapons, militarized police, surveillance technology, laws that criminalize otherwise lawful behavior, private prisons that operate on quota systems, and government officials who are no longer accountable to the rule of law.
So there you have it: facts rather than fiction, so naked that a child could call it for what it is, and yet so politically inconvenient, incorrect and uncomfortable that few dare to speak of them.
Even so, despite the fact that no one wants to be labeled dimwitted, or conspiratorial, or a right wing nut job, most Americans, if they were truly paying attention to what’s been going on in this country over the past few decades and willing to be truthful, at least to themselves, would have to admit that the outlook is decidedly grim. Indeed, unless something changes drastically for the good in the near future, it looks like this fairytale will not have a happy ending.

The thing most distressing about this is the lack of media attention on Police Brutality, and because most of it is occurring in major cities, communities like mine are almost completely unaware of it, and because they have no personal experience with it, they have little sympathy, and less curiosity. When it finally arrives in rural America they will be shocked beyond imagination. Personally, I will have little sympathy for them because there is no excuse for their ignorance. I now live with the attitude that each time I leave home, I may never come back, as my temper is such that I will be killed rather than submit to their tyranny. The total lack of respect for all ages of civilians is unacceptable to me. The younger large framed officers are just itching for a chance to beat someone to death. It has become a badge of honor among them.
