The enemies of truth, freedom, and justice are highly mobilized, well funded, and efficiently organized. 

The institutional structures of power, whether local, national or global, are effective mechanisms through which the ruling groups of society establish and entrench their influence, build consensus among each other, brainwash and expand their control over the masses and society as a whole. Whether they take the form of think tanks, universities, governments, corporations, militaries, intelligence agencies, NGOs, media conglomerates, international organizations, philanthropic foundations, they are institutions of control and conquest. 

Whether that conquest is ideological or physical, the effect is the same: the conquered are oppressed and repressed. 

These institutions are financed through the global banking system of collusion between the private banks and quasi-governmental central banks, who control the money supply and value of the change in your pocket, which are in fact a highly concentrated group of institutions and individuals. Never in all of human history have so few controlled so much on such a global scale, nor have so many had so little on an equally global scale. 

Never before in history have the mechanisms for absolute total global control and oppression been within such close reach. We are seeing the emergence of this 'new society' in which governments are increasingly imperialistic abroad and militaristic at home, as domestic police states are established under the guise of 'homeland security', sold on the pretense of protecting people from terrorists, but in actuality are designed to protect the powerful from the people. 

Increasingly, civil rights and freedoms are being dismantled for the wider populations: countries and peoples all around the world are subjected to bombings, drone attacks from flying killer robots in the sky named "Predators", and high-tech military equipment is designed and used to more effectively kill and conquer poor people all around the globe. 

In the emerging 'homeland security states', technology is being used to spy on people, all internet traffic monitored, phones tapped, cameras recording not only our images, but through biometrics they are categorizing and quantifying our specific individual faces and emotional responses. We are, increasingly, seeing the emergence of a hybrid nightmarish scenario of 'Brave New World' meets '1984.' Technology has largely facilitated the advances in these areas and has, for the first time in all of human history, made possible the notion of a truly global police state.

Yet… there is still hope.

The Technological Revolution has not only facilitated a more rapid and effective apparatus for the institutions of power to exploit in methods of oppression and control, but it has simultaneously facilitated the rapid and effective means through which more people than ever before in human history have access to and empowerment through information and communication on a truly global scale.

As a result of the Internet, the traditional institutions of power have lost their monopoly of control over information and communication.

The very same technological advances that make possible their methods of control and conquest are simultaneously making possible their eventual downfall and failure. While the powerful have the money and are highly centralized, the rest of the world increasingly have the means and remain highly decentralized. And while the powerful are few, the rest are many. The Internet and social media have become effective means through which people are able to empower themselves to struggle against and expose the institutions of power that seek to oppress and control them. Naturally, those same institutions seek to influence – whether overtly or covertly – those very same avenues of social media, they are still effective and available for the struggle for liberation from oppression. 

Here at A NATION BEGUILED, we have been able to harness these new communications technologies BY PROVIDING THE PUBLIC WITH THE VERY BEST AUTHOR’S AND ARTICLES FROM A WIDE VARITY OF SOURCES’. We are committed to providing free and accessible information to the many in order to expose the few. 

Our aim is to struggle against and expose the institutions of power, and to empower the people to take this endeavor into their own hands, digest it and forward it to their friends and family, in an effort to educate the masses of propagandized Americans.


Once one faces their ignorance, humiliation will produce an avenging spirit, and encourage the repressed to fight tyranny with their last breath. Freedom to live our life as we see fit is the last remaining secular principal worth dying for, and no government of any kind should have the power to oppress the people it was designed to protect.


The bottom line of A NATION BEGUILED is to encourage the lesser enabled in America to participate in this information war, and put their lack of intellect and abilities behind them by doing the same thing this old high-school drop out is doing, whether by a web presence , emailing, or both, as I am doing. All you need is a pissed off attitude, a computer, and the ability to discipline yourself to read constantly, and republish common sense articles. Who knows how many no-bodies will evolve into erudite writers.

Erudite: (having or showing great knowledge gained from study and reading.)


As an example of what is possible to do, the majority of this article was taken from an advertisement for GLOBAL RESEARCH, SO, always give credit to whom it is due.

 By Timothy N. Baldwin, JD.
August 30, 2011

America has a love affair with technology. We “can’t live without it.” So we suppose. “[A] new poll by National Public Radio, the Kaiser Family Foundation, and Harvard's Kennedy School of Government shows that people overwhelmingly think that computers and the Internet have made Americans' lives better” (Survey Shows Widespread Enthusiasm for High Technology.) However, according to this poll, Americans feel there are potential dangers.

But these Americans feel the dangers of technology do not include the lack of government authority or government abuse in using this technology. Just the opposite: they “would like the government to protect them from these dangers” (Ibid). The implication is clear: the people do not feel the government’s use of technology poses any dangers or risks against liberty.

With this kind of perspective, it appears technology and liberty may find themselves at war with each other—sooner rather than later. Ultimately, it will put people at war: those who want more technology to make their lives easier and those who want more liberty to live independently and freely.

The question is, “does technology—and its continual advancement—improve the natural and societal condition of mankind?” Well, perhaps the question cannot be stated so simply to obtain the true answer. Still, the subject is especially relevant because what the commercial world creates today, the government uses tomorrow and in mass. We are facing realities today that previous American generations could not have imagined.

Recall that Thomas Jefferson thought the West would not be developed for 1,000 years. No sooner had he spoken those words, the West was being developed rapidly because of the unforeseeable Industrial age. Of course, my parents’ generation could never have thought that they could transfer mega information from tiny handheld devices through satellite and laser technology. Now here we are today to prove their minds incapable of comprehending how fast technology was to advance. For certain, what future generations will have to deal with only intensifies the debate of technology verses liberty.

We have seen the movies and TV shows where computers scan the facial images or retinas of humans to identify them. This once-science-fiction has been the reality in certain contexts in the United States and other nations. It is so main-stream that commercial entities are using facial scanning technology to identify people for purposes of advertisement. As stated in a recent article found at the Drudge Report, “[o]nce the stuff of science fiction and high-tech crime fighting, facial recognition technology has become one of the newest tools in marketing.” Shan Li and David Sarno, Advertisers Start Using Facial Recognition To Tailor Pitches, August 21, 2011, Los Angeles Times).

While some attempt to minimize the malfeasant use of such technology, the truth is, creators of this kind of technology admit this technology is “widely adaptable” (Ibid). As such, it can be used for any purpose the user would prefer. In conjunction with the thousands of video cameras strategically placed in virtually every city in the United States, technology could be used to record every facial print exposed to the software’s capacity. With just one scan of your face, your unique facial identifiers (like a fingerprint or DNA) can be recorded permanently in the government’s database. It would have the same effect as people having to register their fingerprints, DNA, etc. with the government.

Most (if not all) state constitutions and laws do not authorize the government to collect fingerprint and like information from people. Only upon unique circumstances do their laws allow the government to record and store such personal information. For all others, it matters not that you receive the benefit of living in that State; enter public areas and thus “have no reasonable expectation of privacy”; or receive a license by the State to drive a vehicle. Fundamental notions of liberty prohibit the government from arbitrarily collecting personal information, such as your facial print/DNA

This begs the question, what will stop governments from utilizing this kind of increasingly-intrusive technology? After all, if they can “lawfully” use video-audio technology throughout our cities and towns without so much as a negative letter to the editor, what is to stop governments from using other technology in the name of “security and safety”?

Have we come to the point in the United States that to be a part of society means you have implicitly authorized government to use any new technology available for any alleged legitimate purpose? What about the RFID technology which is certainly in lineto be used by the federal and state governments? What about the use of satellites to pinpoint every structural location, including recording video and photography imagery of your private residence? What about the technology being used similarly without our knowledge?

These kinds of issues cut to the very core of what it means to form society and government; to be a free person; and to limit government. It reaches into the very soul of the nature of man and laws of nature. This matter will undoubtedly require the extrapolation and exposition of philosophers to articulate the rationale and reasoning which will (re)form the foundation of a freer society—where one is able to walk in a grocery store, drive down the road, or enter the county courthouse without being raped by technology. Without this kind of philosophical advocacy, it is likely that technology will triumph over liberty as its dominion increases exponentially every day, just as government does.

Intellectual Lethargy


Other than his letter to the editor comment, Tim did not have too much to say about the incredulous lack of concern the majority of American’s have for this intrusive theft of our privacy. Much was implied but not enough elucidated, as Tim does not want to be classified as being aggressive, and chase readers away. I, on the other hand do not give a flip if some readers do not like what I say about their lack of awareness. It is the simple fact that the government’s use of the fear factor has been amazingly effective, and many American’s are stupid enough to be afraid of every dark skinned person on the street, and more inclined than ever to report every fart they hear. If someone in a breakfast diner over-hears me expressing my personal opinion of THEIR president, and reports me to the home-land security agency, and get’s me on a no-fly list, or possible terrorist list, do you think I give a s#*t? Since they do not have the guts to personally confront me, with their stupid world view, it is not worth my time to pursue them and cause them harm. They obviously do not have the courage to defend their self, and retribution on my part would be tasteless, and unrewarding. It galls me that our young men in the military are sacrificing their lives for the likes of these cowards. Not standing up for the principals of freedom is nothing short of treason, or running away in battle.

These scum of the earth live right here in America, and are the first to demand protection from every shadow and imagined threat, and the more protection they demand, the more intrusive our government becomes. I have to stay at home as much as possible, because my wife is terrified that some cop will stop me for a routine search and I will give them a piece of my mind and get my old ass blown away.

Do not perceive that I am running Tim down, because I am not. He is an attorney and the son of a nationally known Preacher, and cannot afford to be as aggressive as I can. I have an enormous respect for Tim and his father, and the editors at News with Views, but someone needs to tell these cowards what the result of their fear really is. The government cannot do this to us without the support of their kind, but we all have to pay the price for their cowardice. Stand Tall American’s! And, if you are a Christian, dying is the best thing that could happen to us. So why do you fear anything, or anyone?

The latest rumor.

The message came to me from a man who was Safety Chairman for the Airline Pilots Association for many years and he is considered an expert on safety. He would not ever spread idle rumor. In short, he is usually quite certain before saying anything!

The following information about TWA Fight 800 was received this afternoon: (08-22-96)

TWA flight 800 was shot down by a U.S. Navy guided missile ship which was in area W-105. W-105 is a warning Area off the SouthEast coast of Long Island and is used by the military for missile firing and other military operations.

Guided missile ships travel all over the world defending the US and they were conducting practice firings up over the top of a Navy P-3 radar plane who was on a Southwest heading about over the top of TwA 800. Evidently the missile is suppose to go over the top of the P-3 and the accuracy of the missile is being measured by instrumentation in the P-3.

There was a USAir flight coming from the Southeast descending towards Providence, RI that had been cleared to 21,000 feet and the TWA 800 aircarft was restricted to 13,000 feet. The air traffic controller requested the USAir flight to turn on his landing lights with the idea that TWA might see his lights and identify him. At that point, he would clear the TWA flight to continue his climb.

The P-3 was a non-beacon target (transponder OFF) flying southwest in the controlled airspace almost over TWA 800 and made NO calls to ATC. After the explosion, he continued his flight to the west and then called ATC and asked if they would like him to turn around and assist with the "accident!"

You will remember that the first announcement about this accident came from the Pentagon. The spokesman mentioned that they were sending the Navy to the crash site. They immediately sent a Navy Captain who was replaced the next day by an Admiral. That Admiral is still on the scene.

The FBI has conducted at least 3,000 eyewitness interviews and the NTSB has not been able to be a part of these interviews not have any access to the contents of them. Some of those eyewitnesses reported seeing lights. Those were probably the landing lights of the USAir plane.

It has been a cover-up from the word go. The NTSB is there in name ONLY. All announcements made by Mr. Bob Francis say absolutely nothing and notice that the FBI is always standing beside or behind Mr. Francis and it would appear that his job is to make sure that nothing is said that would give away "THE BIG SECRET!"

It is time to end this farce and tell the public the real truth as to what happened to TWA 800.

My source shall remain my own but the above information is true and I believe it will all become known soon, now that all of you know the real truth.

News Analysis

When the Paris-bound flight TWA 800 crashed in the Atlantic shortly after takeoff from JFK airport in New York, it started investigations on both sides of the Atlantic. While U.S. investigators say they still have no clue as to what happened, information from French intelligence has been more forthcoming. A French intelligence official gave Pierre Salinger, an American living in Paris, a copy of a document he said he had received from a U.S. Secret Service agent.

The document claimed that TWA 800 had accidentally been shot down by "friendly fire," by a US Navy guided missile ship which was in the area.

Salinger, a press spokesman for President John F. Kennedy and later Paris bureau chief for ABC News, took the information seriously and after the election started talking about it publicly. He believed there was a government conspiracy to cover up the information until after the election. He was interviewed by a French television station, and the broadcast was picked up by Reuters and by AP, which spread Salinger's claims worldwide.

When contacted by CNN, however, Salinger discovered that the note he had received from the French intelligence was similar or identical to a note that was distributed on the Internet in the beginning of September. We received this note by email on September 10, but had no way of verifying the claims it made. In fact, it bears the hallmarks of a lot of the disinformation that unfortunately is floating around the Internet: it cites an anonymous source and is poorly written. A copy of the note is included in the Information section of this issue. Since Salinger has refused to release his note, it cannot be verified whether it is an independent statement of the same facts presented in the Internet note.

Salinger claims that "There is a lot of proof for the document. I have since talked to several individuals who have upheld what the agent said."

The Paris-based Intelligence newsletter in its September 23 edition covered the TWA 800 crash in its front page story. In addition to reviewing the Internet document, it cited French intelligence sources when it said that "U.S. Navy divers recovered the serial number of the missile which destroyed Flight 800, but the Pentagon immediately had the number erased from its inventory. All radar track recordings have supposedly been seized and the NTSB has allegedly not been given access to some 3,000 eyewitness interviews by the FBI." The Intelligence newsletter further speculated that "the Clinton administration apparently has forbidden the release of any information that would implicate the U.S. military … at least until the presidential elections are over."

The FBI, Navy and Secret Service on Friday held a joint news conference to strenuously deny the allegations. No U.S. government or airline official has stepped forward to confirm the allegations.

Saturday, Salinger stood by his information and told CNN that he had received new information from a passenger aboard an Air France flight that was in the area at about the same time.

So it is not possible to determine at this point whether the "friendly fire" cover-up allegation is true, or whether it is disinformation spread by French intelligence.

But one thing is certain: Salinger, Reuters, and the Associated Press have all become conspiracy theorists!

The Federal Reserve is a criminal cartel!

On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of United States Treasury for numerous criminal acts, including but not limited to,CONSPIRACY, FRAUD, UNLAWFUL CONVERSION, AND TREASON 


The petition for Articles of Impeachment was thereafter referred to the Judiciary Committee and has YET TO BE ACTED ON.


Congressman McFadden’s speech on the [private] Federal Reserve Corporation



pg 2
“Some people think that the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lender. In that dark crew of financial pirates there are those who would cut a man’s throat to get a dollar out of his pocket; there are those who send money into states to buy votes to control our legislatures; there are those who maintain International propaganda for the purpose of deceiving us into granting of new concessions which will permit them to cover up their past misdeeds and set again in motion their gigantic train of crime.”


pg 2
“These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this Country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us our hospitality by undermining our American institutions. Those bankers took money out of this Country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They created a reign of terror in Russia with our money in order to help that war along. They instigated the separate peace between Germany and Russia, and thus drove a wedge between the allies in World War. They financed Trotsky’s passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire. They fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution, and placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky’s disposal in one of their branch banks in Sweden so that through him Russian homes might be thoroughly broken up and Russian children flung far and wide from their natural protectors. They have since begun breaking up of American homes and the dispersal of American children. “Mr. Chairman, there should be no partisanship in matters concerning banking and currency affairs in this Country, and I do not speak with any.”


 pg 4
“Recently in one of our States, 60,000 dwelling houses and farms were brought under the hammer in a single day. 71,000 houses and farms in Oakland County, Michigan, were sold and their erstwhile owners dispossessed. The people who have thus been driven out are the wastage of the Fed. They are the victims of the Fed. Their children are the new slaves of the auction blocks in the revival of the institution of human slavery.”

pg 6
“The United States has been ransacked and pillaged. Our structures have been gutted and only the walls are left standing. While being perpetrated, everything the world would rake up to sell us was brought in here at our expense by the Fed until our markets were swamped with unneeded and unwanted imported goods priced far above their value and make to equal the dollar volume of our honest exports, and to kill or reduce our favorite balance of trade. As Agents of the foreign central banks the Fed try by every means in their power to reduce our favorable balance of trade. They act for their foreign principal and they accept fees from foreigners for acting against the best interests of these United States.”


Things have not changed since McFadden made this speech. The criminal cartel, the Federal Reserve, demanded and were granted a banker’s bailout from Congress in Oct 2008.  And according to Fed Chair Bernake, the money went to foreigners . . . again.

If you look at history and the recent actions of the Federal Reserve, it becomes breathtakingly obvious that nothing has changed over the past 78 years. The private Federal Reserve is still a criminal cabal engaged in siphoning off the assets and wealth of our country. And while Rep Charles Lindburgh exposed their agenda in the early 1900′s, and while we are experiencing a foreclosure avalanche, most folks still don’t understand who has been actively engaged in stealing from us and destroying our country for the past 140 years or so.

Banker’s Manifesto of 1892

“Capital must protect itself in every way, through combination and through legislation. Debts must be collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed as soon as possible. When through a process of law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law applied by the central power of wealth, under control of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principle men now engaged in forming an IMPERIALISM of capital to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd. Thus by discrete action we can secure for ourselves what has been generally planned and successfully accomplished.”

According to Hagan Smith, who thoroughly researched US history and the ‘banksters’, all Presidents who attempted to regain control of US currency were assasinated or threatened with assasination, including Ronald Reagan. 

Hagan Smith/Rod Class interview from TalkShoe program of Oct 1, 2010 (3 min)

It is unreasonable to assume that anyone in the federal government can achieve this goal and live to talk about it. Therefore, the population of our country has no other choice but to recover state sovereignty and establish state banks.  See STATE
