The Obama administration has quietly approved a substantial expansion of the terrorist watchlist system, authorizing a secret process that requires neither “concrete facts” nor “irrefutable evidence” to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist, according to a key government document obtained by The Intercept.

The “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance,” a 166-page document issued last year by the National Counterterrorism Center, spells out the government’s secret rules for putting individuals on its main terrorist database, as well as the no fly list and the selectee list, which triggers enhanced screening at airports and border crossings. The new guidelines allow individuals to be designated as representatives of terror organizations without any evidence they are actually connected to such organizations, and it gives a single White House official the unilateral authority to place entire “categories” of people the government is tracking onto the no fly and selectee lists. It broadens the authority of government officials to “nominate” people to the watchlists based on what is vaguely described as “fragmentary information.” It also allows for dead people to be watchlisted.

Over the years, the Obama and Bush Administrations have fiercely resisted disclosing the criteria for placing names on the databases—though the guidelines are officially labeled as unclassified. In May, Attorney General Eric Holder even invoked the state secrets privilege to prevent watchlisting guidelines from being disclosed in litigation launched by an American who was on the no fly list. In an affidavit, Holder called them a “clear roadmap” to the government’s terrorist-tracking apparatus, adding: “The Watchlisting Guidance, although unclassified, contains national security information that, if disclosed … could cause significant harm to national security.”

The rulebook, which The Intercept is publishing in full, was developed behind closed doors by representatives of the nation’s intelligence, military, and law-enforcement establishment, including the Pentagon, CIA, NSA, and FBI. Emblazoned with the crests of 19 agencies, it offers the most complete and revealing look into the secret history of the government’s terror list policies to date. It reveals a confounding and convoluted system filled with exceptions to its own rules, and it relies on the elastic concept of “reasonable suspicion” as a standard for determining whether someone is a possible threat. Because the government tracks “suspected terrorists” as well as “known terrorists,” individuals can be watchlisted if they are suspected of being a suspected terrorist, or if they are suspected of associating with people who are suspected of terrorism activity.

“Instead of a watchlist limited to actual, known terrorists, the government has built a vast system based on the unproven and flawed premise that it can predict if a person will commit a terrorist act in the future,” says Hina Shamsi, the head of the ACLU’s National Security Project. “On that dangerous theory, the government is secretly blacklisting people as suspected terrorists and giving them the impossible task of proving themselves innocent of a threat they haven’t carried out.” Shamsi, who reviewed the document, added, “These criteria should never have been kept secret.”

The document’s definition of “terrorist” activity includes actions that fall far short of bombing or hijacking. In addition to expected crimes, such as assassination or hostage-taking, the guidelines also define destruction of government property and damaging computers used by financial institutions as activities meriting placement on a list. They also define as terrorism any act that is “dangerous” to property and intended to influence government policy through intimidation.

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. It can also be counterproductive. When resources are devoted to tracking people who are not genuine risks to national security, the actual threats get fewer resources—and might go unnoticed.

“If reasonable suspicion is the only standard you need to label somebody, then it’s a slippery slope we’re sliding down here, because then you can label anybody anything,” says David Gomez, a former senior FBI special agent with experience running high-profile terrorism investigations. “Because you appear on a telephone list of somebody doesn’t make you a terrorist. That’s the kind of information that gets put in there.”

The fallout is personal too. There are severe consequences for people unfairly labeled a terrorist by the U.S. government, which shares its watchlist data with local law enforcement, foreign governments, and “private entities.” Once the U.S. government secretly labels you a terrorist or terrorist suspect, other institutions tend to treat you as one. It can become difficult to get a job (or simply to stay out of jail). It can become burdensome—or impossible—to travel. And routine encounters with law enforcement can turn into ordeals.

A chart from the “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance”

In 2012 Tim Healy, the former director of the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center, described to CBS News how watchlists are used by police officers. “So if you are speeding, you get pulled over, they’ll query that name,” he said. “And if they are encountering a known or suspected terrorist, it will pop up and say call the Terrorist Screening Center…. So now the officer on the street knows he may be dealing with a known or suspected terrorist.” Of course, the problem is that the “known or suspected terrorist” might just be an ordinary citizen who should not be treated as a menace to public safety.

Until 2001, the government did not prioritize building a watchlist system. On 9/11, the government’s list of people barred from flying included just 16 names. Today, the no fly list has swelled to tens of thousands of “known or suspected terrorists” (the guidelines refer to them as KSTs). The selectee list subjects people to extra scrutiny and questioning at airports and border crossings. The government has created several other databases, too. The largest is the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE), which gathers terrorism information from sensitive military and intelligence sources around the world. Because it contains classified information that cannot be widely distributed, there is yet another list, the Terrorist Screening Database, or TSDB, which has been stripped of TIDE’s classified data so that it can be shared. When government officials refer to “the watchlist,” they are typically referring to the TSDB. (TIDE is the responsibility of the National Counterterrorism Center; the TSDB is managed by the Terrorist Screening Center at the FBI.)

In a statement, a spokesman for the National Counterterrorism Center told The Intercept that “the watchlisting system is an important part of our layered defense to protect the United States against future terrorist attacks” and that “watchlisting continues to mature to meet an evolving, diffuse threat.” He added that U.S. citizens are afforded extra protections to guard against improper listing, and that no one can be placed on a list solely for activities protected by the First Amendment. A representative of the Terrorist Screening Center did not respond to a request for comment.

The system has been criticized for years. In 2004, Sen. Ted Kennedy complained that he was barred from boarding flights on five separate occasions because his name resembled the alias of a suspected terrorist. Two years later, CBS News obtained a copy of the no fly list and reported that it included Bolivian president Evo Morales and Lebanese parliament head Nabih Berri. One of the watchlists snared Mikey Hicks, a Cub Scout who got his first of many airport pat-downs at age two. In 2007, the Justice Department’s inspector general issued a scathing report identifying “significant weaknesses” in the system. And in 2009, after a Nigerian terrorist was able to board a passenger flight to Detroit and nearly detonated a bomb sewn into his underwear despite his name having been placed on the TIDE list, President Obama admitted that there had been a “systemic failure.”

Obama hoped that his response to the “underwear bomber” would be a turning point. In 2010, he gave increased powers and responsibilities to the agencies that nominate individuals to the lists, placing pressure on them to add names. His administration also issued a set of new guidelines for the watchlists. Problems persisted, however. In 2012, the U.S. Government Accountability Office published a report that bluntly noted there was no agency responsible for figuring out “whether watchlist-related screening or vetting is achieving intended results.” The guidelines were revised and expanded in 2013—and a source within the intelligence community subsequently provided a copy to The Intercept.

“Concrete facts are not necessary”

The five chapters and 11 appendices of the “Watchlisting Guidance” are filled with acronyms, legal citations, and numbered paragraphs; it reads like an arcane textbook with a vocabulary all its own. Different types of data on suspected terrorists are referred to as “derogatory information,” “substantive derogatory information,” “extreme derogatory information” and “particularized derogatory information.” The names of suspected terrorists are passed along a bureaucratic ecosystem of “originators,” “nominators,” “aggregators,” “screeners,” and “encountering agencies.” And “upgrade,” usually a happy word for travellers, is repurposed to mean that an individual has been placed on a more restrictive list.

The heart of the document revolves around the rules for placing individuals on a watchlist. “All executive departments and agencies,” the document says, are responsible for collecting and sharing information on terrorist suspects with the National Counterterrorism Center. It sets a low standard—”reasonable suspicion“—for placing names on the watchlists, and offers a multitude of vague, confusing, or contradictory instructions for gauging it. In the chapter on “Minimum Substantive Derogatory Criteria”—even the title is hard to digest—the key sentence on reasonable suspicion offers little clarity:

“To meet the REASONABLE SUSPICION standard, the NOMINATOR, based on the totality of the circumstances, must rely upon articulable intelligence or information which, taken together with rational inferences from those facts, reasonably warrants a determination that an individual is known or suspected to be or has been knowingly engaged in conduct constituting, in preparation for, in aid of, or related to TERRORISM and/or TERRORIST ACTIVITIES.”

The rulebook makes no effort to define an essential phrase in the passage—”articulable intelligence or information.” After stressing that hunches are not reasonable suspicion and that “there must be an objective factual basis” for labeling someone a terrorist, it goes on to state that no actual facts are required:

“In determining whether a REASONABLE SUSPICION exists, due weight should be given to the specific reasonable inferences that a NOMINATOR is entitled to draw from the facts in light of his/her experience and not on unfounded suspicions or hunches. Although irrefutable evidence or concrete facts are not necessary, to be reasonable, suspicion should be as clear and as fully developed as circumstances permit.”

While the guidelines nominally prohibit nominations based on unreliable information, they explicitly regard “uncorroborated” Facebook or Twitter posts as sufficient grounds for putting an individual on one of the watchlists. “Single source information,” the guidelines state, “including but not limited to ‘walk-in,’ ‘write-in,’ or postings on social media sites, however, should not automatically be discounted … the NOMINATING AGENCY should evaluate the credibility of the source, as well as the nature and specificity of the information, and nominate even if that source is uncorroborated.”

There are a number of loopholes for putting people onto the watchlists even if reasonable suspicion cannot be met.

One is clearly defined: The immediate family of suspected terrorists—their spouses, children, parents, or siblings—may be watchlisted without any suspicion that they themselves are engaged in terrorist activity. But another loophole is quite broad—”associates” who have a defined relationship with a suspected terrorist, but whose involvement in terrorist activity is not known. A third loophole is broader still—individuals with “a possible nexus” to terrorism, but for whom there is not enough “derogatory information” to meet the reasonable suspicion standard.

Americans and foreigners can be nominated for the watchlists if they are associated with a terrorist group, even if that group has not been designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. government. They can also be treated as “representatives” of a terrorist group even if they have “neither membership in nor association with the organization.” The guidelines do helpfully note that certain associations, such as providing janitorial services or delivering packages, are not grounds for being watchlisted.

The nomination system appears to lack meaningful checks and balances. Although government officials have repeatedly said there is a rigorous process for making sure no one is unfairly placed in the databases, the guidelines acknowledge that all nominations of “known terrorists” are considered justified unless the National Counterterrorism Center has evidence to the contrary. In a recent court filing, the government disclosed that there were 468,749 KST nominations in 2013, of which only 4,915 were rejected–a rate of about one percent. The rulebook appears to invert the legal principle of due process, defining nominations as “presumptively valid.”

Profiling categories of people

While the nomination process appears methodical on paper, in practice there is a shortcut around the entire system. Known as a “threat-based expedited upgrade,” it gives a single White House official the unilateral authority to elevate entire “categories of people” whose names appear in the larger databases onto the no fly or selectee lists. This can occur, the guidelines state, when there is a “particular threat stream” indicating that a certain type of individual may commit a terrorist act.

This extraordinary power for “categorical watchlisting”—otherwise known as profiling—is vested in the assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, a position formerly held by CIA Director John Brennan that does not require Senate confirmation.

The rulebook does not indicate what “categories of people” have been subjected to threat-based upgrades. It is not clear, for example, whether a category might be as broad as military-age males from Yemen. The guidelines do make clear that American citizens and green card holders are subject to such upgrades, though government officials are required to review their status in an “expedited” procedure. Upgrades can remain in effect for 72 hours before being reviewed by a small committee of senior officials. If approved, they can remain in place for 30 days before a renewal is required, and can continue “until the threat no longer exists.”

“In a set of watchlisting criteria riddled with exceptions that swallow rules, this exception is perhaps the most expansive and certainly one of the most troubling,” Shamsi, the ACLU attorney, says. “It’s reminiscent of the Bush administration’s heavily criticized color-coded threat alerts, except that here, bureaucrats can exercise virtually standard-less authority in secret with specific negative consequences for entire categories of people.”

The National Counterterrorism Center declined to provide any details on the upgrade authority, including how often it has been exercised and for what categories of people.

Pocket litter and scuba gear

The guidelines provide the clearest explanation yet of what is happening when Americans and foreigners are pulled aside at airports and border crossings by government agents. The fifth chapter, titled “Encounter Management and Analysis,” details the type of information that is targeted for collection during “encounters” with people on the watchlists, as well as the different organizations that should collect the data. The Department of Homeland Security is described as having the largest number of encounters, but other authorities, ranging from the State Department and Coast Guard to foreign governments and “certain private entities,” are also involved in assembling “encounter packages” when watchlisted individuals cross their paths. The encounters can be face-to-face meetings or electronic interactions—for instance, when a watchlisted individual applies for a visa.

In addition to data like fingerprints, travel itineraries, identification documents and gun licenses, the rules encourage screeners to acquire health insurance information, drug prescriptions, “any cards with an electronic strip on it (hotel cards, grocery cards, gift cards, frequent flyer cards),” cellphones, email addresses, binoculars, peroxide, bank account numbers, pay stubs, academic transcripts, parking and speeding tickets, and want ads. The digital information singled out for collection includes social media accounts, cell phone lists, speed dial numbers, laptop images, thumb drives, iPods, Kindles, and cameras. All of the information is then uploaded to the TIDE database.

Screeners are also instructed to collect data on any “pocket litter,” scuba gear, EZ Passes, library cards, and the titles of any books, along with information about their condition—”e.g., new, dog-eared, annotated, unopened.” Business cards and conference materials are also targeted, as well as “anything with an account number” and information about any gold or jewelry worn by the watchlisted individual. Even “animal information”—details about pets from veterinarians or tracking chips—is requested. The rulebook also encourages the collection of biometric or biographical data about the travel partners of watchlisted individuals.

The list of government entities that collect this data includes the U.S. Agency for International Development, which is neither an intelligence nor law-enforcement agency. As the rulebook notes, USAID funds foreign aid programs that promote environmentalism, health care, and education. USAID, which presents itself as committed to fighting global poverty, nonetheless appears to serve as a conduit for sensitive intelligence about foreigners.According to the guidelines, “When USAID receives an application seeking financial assistance, prior to granting, these applications are subject to vetting by USAID intelligence analysts at the TSC.” The guidelines do not disclose the volume of names provided by USAID, the type of information it provides, or the number and duties of the “USAID intelligence analysts.”

A USAID spokesman told The Intercept that “in certain high risk countries, such as Afghanistan, USAID has determined that vetting potential partner organizations with the terrorist watchlist is warranted to protect U.S. taxpayer dollars and to minimize the risk of inadvertent funding of terrorism.” He stated that since 2007, the agency has checked “the names and other personal identifying information of key individuals of contractors and grantees, and sub-recipients.”

Death and the watchlist

The government has been widely criticized for making it impossible for people to know why they have been placed on a watchlist, and for making it nearly impossible to get off. The guidelines bluntly state that “the general policy of the U.S. Government is to neither confirm nor deny an individual’s watchlist status.” But the courts have taken exception to the official silence and footdragging: In June, a federal judge described the government’s secretive removal process as unconstitutional and “wholly ineffective.”

The difficulty of getting off the list is highlighted by a passage in the guidelines stating that an individual can be kept on the watchlist, or even placed onto the watchlist, despite being acquitted of a terrorism-related crime. The rulebook justifies this by noting that conviction in U.S. courts requires evidence beyond a reasonable doubt, whereas watchlisting requires only a reasonable suspicion. Once suspicion is raised, even a jury’s verdict cannot erase it.

Not even death provides a guarantee of getting off the list. The guidelines say the names of dead people will stay on the list if there is reason to believe the deceased’s identity may be used by a suspected terrorist–which the National Counterterrorism Center calls a “demonstrated terrorist tactic.” In fact, for the same reason, the rules permit the deceased spouses of suspected terrorists to be placed onto the list after they have died.

For the living, the process of getting off the watchlist is simple yet opaque. A complaint can be filed through the Department of Homeland Security Traveler Redress Inquiry Program, which launches an internal review that is not subject to oversight by any court or entity outside the counterterrorism community. The review can result in removal from a watchlist or an adjustment of watchlist status, but the individual will not be told if he or she prevails. The guidelines highlight one of the reasons why it has been difficult to get off the list—if multiple agencies have contributed information on a watchlisted individual, all of them must agree to removing him or her.

If a U.S. citizen is placed on the no fly list while abroad and is turned away from a flight bound for the U.S., the guidelines say they should be referred to the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate, which is prohibited from informing them why they were blocked from flying. According to the rules, these individuals can be granted a “One-Time Waiver” to fly, though they will not be told that they are traveling on a waiver. Back in the United States, they will be unable to board another flight.

The document states that nominating agencies are “under a continuing obligation” to provide exculpatory information when it emerges. It adds that the agencies are expected to conduct annual reviews of watchlisted American citizens and green card holders. It is unclear whether foreigners—or the dead—are reviewed at the same pace. As the rulebook notes, “watchlisting is not an exact science.”

The Depopulation Agenda

07/25/2014

By Dean Henderson

While the global elite construct underground bunkers, eat organic and hoard seeds in Arctic vaults; the global poor are being slowly starved thanks to high commodity prices and poisoned with genetically modified (GMO) food. Austerity measures aimed largely at the poor are being imposed on all the nations of the world. Weather events grow more deadly and brushfire wars more frequent. An AK-47 can be obtained for $49 in the markets of West Africa. The depopulation campaign of the inbred Illuminati bankers is accelerating.

(Excerpted from Chapter 13: USS Persian Gulf: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

In 1957 President Dwight Eisenhower, who later warned of a “military-industrial complex”, commissioned a panel of scientists to study the issue of overpopulation.  The scientists put forth Alternatives I, II and III, advocating both the release of deadly viruses and perpetual warfare as means to decrease world population.

The first supposition dovetailed nicely with the pharmaceutical interests of the Rockefellers.  According to Nexus magazine, the Rockefellers own one-half of the US pharmaceutical industry, which would reap billions developing medicines to “battle” the deadly viruses about to be released.

In 1969 the Senate Church Committee discovered that the US Defense Department (DOD) had requested a budget of tens of millions of taxpayer dollars for a program to speed development of new viruses which target and destroy the human immune system.  DOD officials testified before Congress that they planned to produce, “a synthetic biological agent, an agent that does not naturally exist and for which no natural immunity could be acquired…Most important is that it might be refractory to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease.”  House Bill 5090 authorized the funds and MK-NAOMI was carried out at Fort Detrick, Maryland.

Out of this research came the AIDS virus which was targeted at “undesirable elements” of the population. The first AIDS viruses were administered through a massive smallpox vaccine campaign in central and southern Africa by the World Health Organization in 1977.  A year later ads appeared in major US newspapers soliciting “promiscuous gay male volunteers” to take part in a Hepatitis B vaccine study. [1]

The program targeted male homosexuals age 20-40 in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis and San Francisco. It was administered by the US Centers for Disease Control which, under its earlier incarnation as the US Public Health Department in Atlanta, oversaw the Tuskegee syphilis experiments on African American males. [2]

San Francisco has been a target of numerous CIA experiments, due to its high population of left-leaning and gay citizens, which the Illuminati views as “undesirables”.  According to Dr. Eva Snead, San Francisco has one of the highest cancer rates in the country.  For years Malathion- first developed by the Nazis- was sprayed over the city by helicopters from the CIA’s Evergreen Air, whose Arizona base is used, according to author William Cooper, as CIA transshipment point for Columbian cocaine.  The mysterious Legionnaire’s Disease occurs often in San Francisco and the CIA’s MK-ULTRA mind control bad acid program was based there.

The intellectual force behind the introduction of AIDS was the Bilderberger Group, which became fixated on population control after WWII. Author Cooper says the Policy Committee of the Bilderbergers gave orders to DOD to introduce the AIDS virus.  The Bilderbergers are close to the Club of Rome, which was founded on a Rockefeller estate near Bellagio, Italy and is backed by the same European Black Nobility who frequent Bilderberger meetings.  A 1968 study by the Club of Rome advocated lowering the birth rate and increasing the death rate.  Club founder Dr. Aurelio Peccei made a top-secret recommendation to introduce a microbe that would attack the auto-immune system, then develop a vaccine as a prophylactic for the global elite. [3]

One month after the 1968 Club of Rome meeting Paul Ehrlich published The Population Bomb. The book hints at a draconian depopulation plan in the works.  On page seventeen Ehrlich writes, “The problem could have been avoided by population control…so that a ‘death rate solution’ did not have to occur.”  A year later MK-NAOMI was born.  Peccei himself authored the Club of Rome’s much-touted Global 2000 report, which President Jimmy Carter pushed on his BCCI shakedown cruise of Africa.  Peccei wrote in the report, “Man is now vested with unprecedented, tremendous responsibilities and thrown into the role of moderator of life on the planet- including his own”.

The Bilderbergers were behind the Haig-Kissinger Depopulation Policy, a driving force at the State Department and administered by the National Security Council.  Pressure is applied to Third World countries to reduce their populations.  Those that do not comply see their US aid withheld or are subject to Pink Plan low-intensity war that targets civilians, especially women of child-bearing age.  In Africa famine and brush-fire wars are encouraged.  AK-47 rifles can be bought at West African markets for under $50.  The same is true in the markets of Peshawar, Pakistan.  In 1975, a year after attending a Club of Rome conference on the topic, Secretary of State Kissinger founded the Office of Population Affairs (OPA).

Latin American OPA case officer Thomas Ferguson spilled the beans on OPA’s agenda when he stated, “There is a single theme behind all our work; we must reduce population levels.  Either they do it our way, through nice clean methods or they will get the kind of mess that we have in El Salvador, or in Iran, or in Beirut…Once population is out of control it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it…The professionals aren’t interested in reducing population for humanitarian reasons…Civil wars are somewhat drawn-out ways to reduce population.  The quickest way to reduce population is through famine like in Africa.  We go into a country and say, here is your goddamn development plan.  Throw it out the window.  Start looking at your population…if you don’t …then you’ll have an El Salvador or an Iran, or worse, a Cambodia”. [4]

Ferguson said of El Salvador, “To accomplish what the State Department deems adequate population control, the civil war (run by CIA) would have to be greatly expanded.  You have to pull all the males into fighting and kill significant numbers of fertile, child-bearing age females.  You are killing a small number of males and not enough fertile females to do the job…If the war went on 30-40 years, you might accomplish something.  Unfortunately, we don’t have too many instances of this to study”.

Report from Iron Mountain

In 1961 Kennedy Administration officials McGeorge Bundy, Robert McNamara and Dean Rusk, all CFR and Bilderberger members, led a study group which looked into “the problem of peace”.  The group met at Iron Mountain, a huge underground corporate nuclear shelter near Hudson, New York, where CFR think tank The Hudson Institute is located.  The bunker contains redundant offices in case of nuclear attack for Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell and JP Morgan Chase. [5]  A copy of the group discussions, known as Report from Iron Mountain, was leaked by a participant and published in 1967 by Dial Press.

The report’s authors saw war as necessary and desirable stating “War itself is the basic social system, within which other secondary modes of social organization conflict or conspire. (War is) the principal organizing force…the essential economic stabilizer of modern societies.”  The group worried that through “ambiguous leadership” the “ruling administrative class” might lose its ability to “rationalize a desired war”, leading to the “actual disestablishment of military institutions”.

The report goes on to say, “…the war system cannot responsibly be allowed to disappear until…we know exactly what we plan to put in its place…The possibility of war provides the sense of external necessity without which no government can long remain in power…The basic authority of a modern state over its people resides in its war powers. War has served as the last great safeguard against the elimination of necessary classes.”

Historian Howard Zinn described this conundrum when he wrote, “American capitalism needed international rivalry- and periodic war- to create an artificial community of interest between rich and poor, supplanting the genuine community of interest among the poor that showed itself in sporadic movements”.

The Iron Mountain gang was not the first to discover the virtues of war.  In 1909 the trustees of the Andrew Carnegie Foundation for International Peace met to discuss pre-WWI American life.  Many of the participants were members of Skull & Bones.  They concluded, “There are no known means more efficient than war, assuming the objective is altering the life of an entire people…How do we involve the United States in a war?”

The Report from Iron Mountain goes on to propose a proper role for those of the lower classes, crediting military institutions with providing “antisocial elements with an acceptable role in the social structure.  The younger and more dangerous of these hostile social groupings have been kept under control by the Selective Service System…A possible surrogate for the control of potential enemies of society is the reintroduction, in some form consistent with modern technology and political process, of slavery…The development of a sophisticated form of slavery may be an absolute prerequisite for social control in a world at peace.”

The Iron Mountain goons, though thrilled by the idea of slavery, listed as other socioeconomic substitutions for war: a comprehensive social welfare program, a giant open-ended space program aimed at unreachable targets, a permanent arms inspection regime, an omnipresent global police and peacekeeping force, massive global environmental pollution which would require a large labor pool to clean up, socially-oriented blood sports and a comprehensive eugenics program. [6]

The Iraqi genocide fulfilled the dreams of the Club of Rome Zero Population Growth maniacs, while also providing a testing ground for two of the war substitutes proposed by the Iron Mountain fascists: an arms inspection regime and UN peacekeepers.  Both concepts gained traction in the international community thanks to the Gulf War.

Let the Iraqi Genocide Begin

Estimates of Iraqi casualties during the Gulf War are sobering.  Some organizations like Greenpeace put the death toll at near one million people.  It was a war in which the media was denied access on a scale never before seen, so casualty figures vary greatly.  According to Tony Murphy, a researcher at the International War Crimes Tribunal, the US attack on Iraq killed 125,000 civilians, while destroying 676 schools, 38 hospitals, 8 major hydroelectric dams, 11 power plants, 119 power substations and half the country’s telephone lines.  The attacks occurred mostly at night when people were most vulnerable.

In the months following the war the death rate of Iraqi children under five tripled.  Thirty-eight percent of these deaths were caused by diarrhea. [7]  Victor Filatov, a Russian journalist reporting for Sovetskaya Rossiya from post-war Baghdad wrote, “What further bloodshed do these barbarians of the 20th century need?  I thought the Americans had changed since Vietnam…but no, they never change.  They remain true to themselves.”

According to former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, the US was found guilty of nineteen war crimes against Iraq before the International War Crimes Tribunal.  The US dropped 88,000 tons of bombs on Iraq during the Gulf War and has rained down countless more bombs since.  Many bombs were tipped with armor piercing depleted uranium (DU) warheads, which may account for chronic Iraqi health problems.  Dr. Siegwart-Horst Gunther, a German physician who came to Iraq to help its people, became gravely ill when he handled just one cigar-sized fragment from a DU warhead.  Dr. Gunther measured the tiny object’s radioactivity to be 11 microSv per hour, whereas an acceptable exposure is no more than 300 microSv per year. [8]  Three hundred tons of DU ammunition was deployed during the war.

Many believe DU is responsible for Gulf War Syndrome, which has killed and permanently injured many US soldiers who fought in the Persian Gulf theater.  Since 2000, nearly 11,000 US Gulf War veterans have died from Gulf War Syndrome, while the Pentagon continues to cover up this travesty.

Satanism & Psychotronic Warfare

The US also tested numerous top-secret high-tech weapons systems in the Gulf theatre, while utilizing some old low-frequency favorites.  When Iraqi ground forces surrendered, many of them were in a state of delirium and lethargy that could have been induced by extremely low-frequency radio waves, which the US used as a weapon as early as the Vietnam conflict.

Yale University and CIA psychiatrist Dr. Jose Delgado studied mind control for the Company during the 1950’s as part of the MK-ULTRA program.  Delgado determined, “Physical control of many brain functions is a demonstrated fact…it is even possible to create and follow intentions…By electronic stimulation of specific cerebral structures, movements can be induced by radio command…by remote control.”

According to a military document written by Colonel Paul Valley and Major Michael Aquino titled From PSYOP to Mindwar: The Psychology of Victory, the US Army used an operational weapons system “to map the minds of neutral and enemy individuals and then to change them in accordance with US national interests”.  The technique was used to secure the surrender of 29,276 armed Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army soldiers in 1967 and 1968.  The US Navy was also heavily involved in “psychotronic” research. [9]  Many US soldiers who served near the DMZ that divided North and South Vietnam claimed to see UFOs on a regular basis.  The Pentagon Papers revealed that an electronic barrier was placed along the DMZ by the secretive JASON Society.

Major Michael Aquino was an Army psyops specialist in Vietnam, where his unit specialized in drug-inducement, brainwashing, virus injection, brain implants, hypnosis, and use of electromagnetic fields and extremely low-frequency radio waves.  After Vietnam, Aquino moved to San Francisco and founded the Temple of Set.  Set is the ancient Egyptian name for Lucifer.  Aquino was now a senior US Military Intelligence official. [10]  He’d been given a Top Secret security clearance on June, 9, 1981.  Less than a month later an Army intelligence memo revealed that Aquino’s Temple of Set was an off-shoot of Anton La Vey’s Church of Satan, also headquartered in San Francisco. Two other Set members were Willie Browning and Dennis Mann.  Both were Army Intelligence officers.

The Temple of Set was obsessed with military matters and political fascism. It was especially preoccupied with the Nazi Order of the Trapezoid.  Aquino’s “official” job was history professor at Golden Gate College.  The Temple recruited the same Hells Angels who Billy Mellon Hitchcock had used to dole out his bad CIA acid.  Its members frequented prostitutes where they engaged in all manner of sadomasochistic activities. [11]  Director of Army Counter-Intelligence Donald Press revealed that Dennis Mann was assigned to the 306 PSYOPS Battalion and that Aquino was assigned to a top secret program known as Presidio.

Presidio is also the name of a spooky complex in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which Mikhail Gorbachev reportedly frequented as the Soviet Union was falling apart.  Was Aquino part of an operation to “map the mind” of the Soviet Union’s last leader and induce him into proposing bothglasnost and perestroika, the two free market policies that ultimately led to the Soviet Union’s demise?  Remember the curious mark which suddenly appeared on Gorbachev’s forehead?  Was he implanted with some sort of microchip mind-control device to make him think “in accordance with US national interests”?

Such Orwellian technology is marketed on a regular basis throughout the world.  International Healthline Corporation and others sell microchip implants in the US, Russia and Europe.  The Humane Society has adopted a policy of micro-chipping all stray pets. The State of Hawaii requires that all pets be micro-chipped.  Six thousand people in Sweden have accepted a microchip in their hand, which they use for all purchases. Trials are also underway in Japan.  In July 2002, National Public Radio reported a similar trial beginning in Seattle.  Later in 2002, after a rash of suspicious abductions of young girls, BBC reported that a British company plans to implant children with microchips so that their parents can monitor their whereabouts.

Dr. Carl Sanders, a highly acclaimed electronics engineer, revealed that a microchip project he launched to help people with severed spinal cords was taken over by the Bill Colby’s Operation Phoenix in a series of meetings organized by Henry Kissinger.  Sanders says the optimal spot for a microchip implant is just below the hairline on a person’s forehead, since the device can be recharged by changes in body temperatures, which are most pronounced there.  Interestingly, this is the location of the pineal gland or Third Eye.

The 1986 Emigration Control Act grants the President the power to mandate any kind of ID he deems necessary. [12]  Researchers at Southern California have developed a chip which mimics the hippocampus, the part of the brain that deals with memory.  Pentagon officials are interested in using it in experiments to create a “super-soldier”. [13]  Another microchip called Braingate is being implanted in paralyzed people.  It allows them to control their environment by simply thinking. [14]

In Iraq, psychological warfare gave way to slow genocide.  According to UNICEF, as of late 2001, 1.5 million Iraqi children had died as a result of sanctions, while one child in ten died before their first birthday.  Thalassemia, anemia and diarrhea were the biggest killers and could have been prevented were it not for a chronic shortage of blood and medicine in Iraq due to the sanctions.  UN Committee 661 served as arbiter of what constituted a “dual use” item and therefore banned for import into Iraq.  As of 2001, over 1,600 Iraqi contracts with Western companies for medical equipment had been blocked by 661. [15]

The Gulf War decimated Iraq’s sewer and water treatment systems. Iraqis were forced to drink polluted water, leading to numerous health problems.  Iraq was not allowed to import chlorine to clean the water since 661 deemed it a potential chemical weapon.  Electrical power was rationed in three-hour daily increments per household since the Iraqi government couldn’t get the parts it needed to fix its power plants after the US bombed its entire power grid.  With the devaluation of the Iraqi dinar and the ban on the export of 2.4 million barrels of oil per day, the average Iraqi lived on $2.50 a month- enough to buy a pair of shoes.  The only Iraqis not affected were the wealthy elite, who had long ago stashed their savings overseas in US dollars.

UNICEF estimates that 28% of Iraqi children no longer went to school.  Before the war almost all children attended.  Often families could only afford to send one child to school because of the cost of simple things like backpacks, shoes and notebooks.  Rafah Salam Aziz, Director of Mansour Children’s Hospital, said parents were often forced to make similar decisions about their children’s lives.  Aziz said, “Many times it’s easier for a family to let a baby die rather than let the whole family go hungry and get sick.”[16]

In 1996 Clinton Defense Secretary William Perry announced a new military buildup in the Persian Gulf.  Soon cruise missiles were again raining down on Baghdad.  Many nations now grew weary of both US bombing and the sanctions regime, which was brutalizing the Iraqi people while strengthening the grip of Saddam Hussein.  Russian President Boris Yeltsin, whose country signed a deal with Iraq to rebuild its shattered oil sector, said he was disturbed at the use of “extreme and radical force against the Arab world”.  The Russian opposition offered a more scalding appraisal.  Alexander Lebed stating angrily, “The US is like a strong master who spits on everybody.”[17]

Turkey, Jordan and Syria all expressed unease over the new round of bombing.  Even the Saudis, where Islamic fundamentalism was on the rise and two major bombings had occurred at US bases, now refused to allow the US to use its bases to bomb Iraq.  Many countries, including France, began openly flaunting the UN embargo against Iraq in the late 1990’s.

Dennis Halliday, former Assistant Secretary of the UN who initially headed the UN Humanitarian Program to Iraq, resigned his post in protest. He said sanctions were demolishing the very class of Iraqi people who wanted to create a better government in the country.  He was scornful of the UN Oil for Food Program under which the US received 70% of Iraqi oil.  Halliday stated plainly, “We are guilty of committing genocide, through the Security Council, against Iraq.”[18]

Halliday’s 1998 successor was Hans Van Sponeck, who watched as the UN unfurled the UNSCOM arms inspection regime, paid for by Iraqi oil sales.  US inspector Scott Ritter confirmed Iraqi suspicions that UNSCOM was gathering intelligence for CIA and Mossad.  UNSCOM was just the latest CIA tool.  In 1996 the Iraqi government claimed international relief agencies, including the World Food Program, which claimed to be helping the Kurds, were actually CIA operatives attempting to destabilize the country.

In fact the CIA had spent more than $20 million in its support of the Iraqi National Congress, led by long-time CIA surrogate Jalal Talibani’s PKK Kurdish faction. [19]  In January 1997 Iraq uncovered two Mossad spy rings in one month following the attempted assassination of Saddam Hussein’s son. [20]  Hans Van Sponeck had seen enough. He too resigned in protest.

In early 1999 it was revealed that the US had used UNSCOM to plant electronic bugging devices in the Iraqi Ministry of Defense.  Arms inspector Scott Ritter said the CIA was using UNSCOM to “provoke a crisis”.  In December 1998 UNSCOM, faced with the embarrassing accusations of espionage, pulled out of Iraq.  On December 15th the US launched a new round of bombing.  Ritter says intelligence gathered by UNSCOM was used for targeting. UNSCOM spokesman David Kay resurfaced in 2003 calling for a US invasion of Iraq. He now worked for SAIC, which landed numerous Pentagon contracts to rebuild Iraq.

 According to former Border Patrol Security expert Zach Taylor, This current so-called border crises is a manufactured crises that has been going on since at least the year 1986 when the Reagan administration was in power, and this is what as known as Asymmetrical Warfare.  Here is a clip from Zack taylor’s interview for the upcoming documentary film called “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.”

He also wrote this in a June 22,2014  press release by the The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers are retired Border Patrol Officers 

This invitation to invade America by illegal aliens from Central America has been going on for years with the explicit concurrence of America’s elected officials. The present invasion of thousands of unaccompanied minors is the obvious desired result of the current administration, the United States Senate that passed S-744 and every other elected official in the United States that has not stood up and demanded that the Immigration Laws of the United States be fully enforced and in particular a President that announced that it does not make good sense to enforce Immigration Laws. This is not a humanitarian crisis, this is a manufactured crisis. Any media outlet that calls this a humanitarian crisis is concealing what is actually happening. This is the result of American leaders taking America into a lawless state over time and this latest invasion by opportunistic law breakers is a direct result of their actions. Period.

Great Grand Mother Anna offers some advice

07/24/2014

http://scannedretina.com/2014/07/21/great-grand-mother-anna-offers-some-advice-part-01/

 PART 1 & 2

by arnie rosner

Dear Martha– you will have to forgive everyone. People are understandably upset and rattled when they first realize that their government is a private, for-profit, mostly foreign owned corporation supposedly here to provide governmental services and doing a very poor job of it. In fact, they are in contract default, and strictly speaking, we don’t have to contract with them, pay them, or deal with them at all.

It is outrageous, you must admit. They are our EMPLOYEES and we have let them get away with this?

It also alarms most people to realize that this has been going on and developing ever since the Civil War, that the Roman Catholic Church is involved, that ELIZABETH II has acted in Breach of Trust and against American interests the entire time that Elizabeth II has sat on the British throne—- it IS a lot to take in. And it is unsettling.

But, everyone, please calm down. It has been going on for 150 years, and it won’t all get resolved overnight. Also, though we have all been defrauded and victimized, let’s also own our share of culpability and if we have to “find someone to blame” let the blame start right here with me and you and Roger next door. This has only happened to our country because we did not remain vigilant as Jefferson warned us, and because we found hot cars and sports events to be intrinsically more interesting than history and civics.

Who knew those dull old subjects could be so vitally important?

Anyway, we have a LOT of people to educate and a lot of pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to nail down and a lot of step-by-step local actions to take. Please, let those with specific parts of the puzzle come forward now — those with a knowledge of the original Thirteenth Amendment, come forward and share. Those with insight into the founding of the original United States (Company) and the Treaty of the Delawares, come forward and share. Those who know the IRS Scam well enough to beat it, come forward and share. Those who have fought the fight with the British government, come forward. Those who placed a claim on abandonment on the Office of The United States Postmaster (supposed to be one of three international Trustees defending The United States Trust (1789))—come forward and share.

This is a discovery process, and even those of us who have worked on this diligently for decades find that we have bits and pieces of it wrong. I find out that I have some detail wrong every other week. I expect that to continue to happen. I don’t get upset when it does. I just thank the person who brought the error forward and thank God some other American was watching the game and caring enough to pay attention. We are ALL going to make ERRORS in this process, but let me suggest that when we do, it is not the end of the world and it is not always anyone’s “fault”. A lot of this information has been purposefully obscured, hidden, lost in dusty libraries….to expedite the fraud practiced against us. So any idea that this is simple or easy or fool-proof has to end from the outset and we all have to grasp both HOW MUCH has already been done by Americans who never got paid a dime and who often paid huge fines and spent time in jail to bring us this far, this fast.

Standing here flat-footed, every man, woman, and child in America already owes their heartfelt service in the cause of reclaiming our rightful place as the civil sovereigns on the land of these Several states— owes it to the men who fought and died believing that they were protecting us, owe it to the men like Bill Benson and Tommy Cryer who fought the beast in DC with all they had. Now, it is up to us.

I have suggested a two pronged solution, both a positive and a negative “pole” to provide the currency for this operation.

First, we treat the corporation in Washington, DC as a corporation, because that is all it is. It has acted in contract default and engaged in criminal activities against its employers, so we need to go to France and contact their ministry responsible for chartering corporations and file a complaint requesting liquidation of the UNITED STATES (INC.). This is entirely within our right and within their responsibility, but as Pope Benedict said when first approached about the ongoing Breach of Trust against The United States Trust (1789)—- we have to complain. Someone with standing to complain has to stand up and say, hey, look at this! Otherwise, bureaucrats assume that everything is okay, especially bureaucrats operating in foreign countries.

Second, we need to do what we are already doing. We need to call public townhall meetings in our counties all around the country and educate people about what the government really is, our responsibility to run our own affairs on the land, etc., etc., etc., and we have to give notice and hold elections at the same time we are forming our Jural Societies. There are no American Courts operational, so we have to build them from the ground up. The Grand Juries are organized. Next, the Judges are elected at public meetings of each County, along with a Sheriff and, importantly, a Coroner. Coroners hold a very important civil office. They are the only ones able to remove a sitting Governor from office.

We should be making every effort to educate the members of the law enforcement and military communities, so they understand civil authority and don’t feel threatened. Our civil Sheriffs who hold authority over the land jurisdiction will naturally pull rank on them, but that’s the way it is meant to be. If the men currently serving as law enforcement employees of the private corporations are amenable to taking the Public Oath of Office and serving as real constitutional Sheriffs on the land, and they were born on the land of one of the American States, there is no reason that they can’t serve us. The only question becomes –why do the pass through loop for funding their positions? We don’t need to give our money to a private corporation to cut pay checks and misdirect our own employees to work for them, do we? No. So, there are a lot of details to be resolved, but the end is in view.

Once the American Court System is set up, and Americans are running it— as opposed to members of the BRITISH Bar Association, and the Judges, Sheriffs, and Coroners are in place, we need to do a scene out of the old western movies. Remember where the Sheriff called for a posse and the men of the town all came and the Sheriff deputized them? The words were simple— something like, “I, John Wayne, elected Sheriff of Yuma County, Arizona, hereby deputize you men gathered here today to act as my deputies and to faithfully enforce the Public Laws of Arizona and keep the peace, Answer by saying, “So help me God”.” They all took the pledge and then the Sheriff said something like, “All right then, you are all deputies of Yuma County! Let’s ride!”

So long as the local law enforcement personnel have been duly advised of who you are and what you are doing and why, they haven’t got a leg to stand on to oppose you. In fact, they are honor and duty and paycheck bound to HELP you. It’s just the middlemen in the middle claiming to “represent” you that need to be dealt with—-and that means offering them the chance to take their Public Oath of Office and to assist you, or be removed from any presumed Public Office— publically—-and relegated to their real office as officers of a private, for-profit, mostly foreign owned corporation franchise.

Some of these yahoos will have to be arrested, but that’s their choice.

In tandem with setting up the American Court System we need to seize control of our own monetary system. Do you all understand that the American Dollar still exists? And that it has always been backed by gold or silver? “Federal Reserve Notes” are just look-alike imposters enforced upon you as “legal tender” by a bunch of con artists. Our real money is still alive and well and more valuable than ever.

Did you know that we have always had the right to go to the “US Mint” — which is a private business, too, just under government contract—-plunk down a bunch of silver and have dollars minted? We never had to wait for any “US President” to do it. We are fully capable of doing it ourselves.

The move is on to establish American financial institutions, specifically, the Union Reserve of Texas. These commodity accounting houses allow investors to invest script money in real, hard assets—- and use real money based on those investments. With today’s technology we can follow the rise and fall of commodity values almost instant by instant, and the value of the commodity you invest in is what you have in your private bank account to access as credit on any given day. Sure, the values go up and down, but that’s reality and in the end, reality is all that counts. All this make-believe stuff is just that—legal fiction. You have to decide whether you want to live in the real America, or in the UNITED STATES—- a legal fiction created by foreign lawyers, where “dollars” are debt notes and “spending” them just digs you eternally deeper into debt.

Those who choose to live life as real people and as Americans participating in private banks will be able to sleep at night knowing that they are in control of their own assets and not being traded as chits on the stock market and not subject to confiscation. That’s a pretty good exchange in return for some “volatility” in the market price of commodities.

The Union Reserve of Texas can offer its customers the convenience of a modern debit card based on their investment holdings.

So, although your worthless debt notes will be converted into real assets, and the value of those assets will go up and down every day, you will be able use a debit card at the grocery store and go on about your business more or less as usual—except with the added assurance that your bank account is really yours and that you are invested in something more than hot air coming out of Washington, DC.

Are you all liking this? Is this where you want to go? A new American Dream? Are you willing to work hard every day to make this happen? If so, there’s nothing stopping you. You see, the rats in Washington, DC, now know for sure that the jig is up and that the rest of the world is watching. They know that they have been identified and proven to be criminals. They know that their corporation is in proven contract default. They know that any “false flag” they pull now will be recognized for what it is. They know that their attempt to replace “FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES” with “UNITED STATES TREASURY NOTES” is failing and is recognized as a criminal fraud gambit. They know that the two major banking cartels that have colluded together to create this circumstance have been duly investigated, caught in criminal activities, and that both the “FEDERAL RESERVE” and the “INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND” are guilty of fraud, collusion, conspiracy against rights, conspiracy against the Constitution owed to the American State Citizens, unlawful conversion, monopoly inducement, inland piracy, enslavement, unlawful conscription, false advertising, and the list goes on and on and on. They know that their favorite means of enforcing this criminal activity– the IRS, the CIA, certain offices of the DOD— have all been “compromised” and busted.

Vladimir Putin and the Chinese Secretary General and most of the Third World which has suffered and been defrauded just as we have been at home, are all staring down their proverbial gun barrels at the rats in Washington, DC. To date, 177 nations have joined together in economic alliance and many of those same nations have military alignments as well.

The puppet masters of “the United States of America (Minor)” — a consortium of “American states” more normally thought of as “federal” territories and protectorates—- have hit the wall. They are finally caught between a rock and a hard place. The American States and American State Citizens on one side, and most of the rest of the world on the other. What’s a bankster to do?

Many have either chosen or been “encouraged” to commit suicide. Being a senior employee of JP Morgan Bank has become one of the most hazardous professions per capita in the world in recent months. Of course, we don’t advocate harming anyone. We are just here to get our country back and clean up the mess.

Let’s remember “Rosie, the Riveter”. Ladies, you are the rock, the house, upon which America stands. When you put your minds to it and shove, there isn’t a force on earth that can turn your tide.

Men, let’s remember the boys swarming ashore at Normandy, straight into the maws of German artillery and machine gun nests. Are you going to betray them and what they fought for?

It’s D-Day and the war is being fought in your own minds. You have to wake up. You have to start remembering who you really are. You have to get outside the box that FDR and his cronies constructed for you.

The real America known as the united States of America has been at peace for 165 years. Our Congress has no “emergency powers” whatsoever. Our Congress operates as a non-incorporated fully liable Body Politic. Our Congress is solemnly elected by the people inhabiting each State of the Union who qualify to be “electors” —not “voters”—-and guess what? Our united States senators are all accountable to the legislatures of our states. Our army is not called “US Armed Forces Command”—our army is called The Grand Army of the Republic. It is run, staffed, and manned by American State Citizens.

And we just told the Joint Chiefs to bring the GAR out of mothballs and, if necessary, deploy it to seize stockpiles of armaments that corporate “President” Obama has improperly stored on American State property and which he clearly intends to make available to commercial mercenary armies masquerading as “federal agencies”—-FEMA, DHS, and the rest.

We told them to send the bill for this to the UNITED NATIONS dba IMF dba UNITED STATES, because clearly these “institutions” are in contract default and not doing the job that we, their EMPLOYERS, have set for them.

The Office of the Provost Marshal is responsible for coordinating this. Major General David E. Quantock, however, is a lawyer, a member of the BRITISH Bar Association, and so far, predictably enough, he hasn’t been doing his real job— protecting the American States and the American State Citizens. He must be prevailed upon to do so, and so must General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who can’t figure out whether to lick Obama’s shoes or his ass.

Do you think that the rest of you, if sufficiently motivated—as in, being in fear for your lives—could lend a hand in disseminating this information and expressing your concern to all parties?

Bearing in mind that the members of Congress as it now exists are NOT your representatives, but are instead the representatives of the UNITED STATES Corporation acting as foreign envoys back to you—-isn’t it about time that you told those people that (1) they are in contract default, and (2) they are not representing you, and (3) this horse hooey has to stop?

Regarding “Political Action”

 

I note all the poor people rushing in and pleading, oh, no, no, no! We have to participate in the electoral process!

The electoral process of what? A private, for-profit, mostly foreign owned commercial corporation run amok?

They say, we have to get so-and-so elected and the Republicans have to take back the Senate…..

They don’t yet perceive the insanity of what they are saying and doing.

We’ve been playing this set up board game for a hundred years. There’s no difference between “Democrats” and “Republicans” anymore, if there ever was. Both are representatives of criminality, corruption, incompetence, and enslavement of real people to serve their corporation. They are the two cattle prods, one right, one left.

It’s important to understand that the Roosevelts, Teddy and FDR, set up this mental box with malice aforethought and were also the authors of much of the semantic deceit and fraud that has engulfed America for three generations. Should it surprise anyone to learn that they were also at the bottom of the development of the present “two party system”?

Will it sound strange to you that both modern “national” political parties got their start in Wisconsin, of all places–and that neither of these parties bear any resemblance to their historical antecedants?   For example, did you know that after the Civil War, it was the Democrats that blocked black Americans from being able to own land and vote, and it was the Republicans who championed that cause and finally pushed it through?

Perhaps you will wonder why such an odd thing exists?

Because in 1848 Wisconsin received a large number of German immigrants who were cast out of Europe for being “Freethinkers and Communists”—-a result of the 1848 Workers Rebellion. These people brought their foreign ideas to Wisconsin, settled in, and promptly began setting up the favorite implement of all Communists—- a divide and conquer strategy. All things are dualistic in this world and people naturally think of things as “good” or “bad”, so it is relatively easy to use this unconscious prejudice and default in our logic systems to our detriment. Unscrupulous politicians just set up “the poles”—or as in this case, “the parties”—and they just drive the sheep from one side of the spectrum to the other.

In very short order they have us wasting our time and energy and passion taking actions which get us nowhere.

Meanwhile, they are pursuing their real agenda of fraud, more deception, and enslavement.

As if this were not obvious enough, in recent years they have instituted the use of “Diebold Voting Machines” — so they don’t even have to worry about the inconvenient evidence of real election results posed by paper ballots. They can just pay off the private companies and union workers who build and service these machines, then sit back and grin and “wait for the election results to come in”.

Are Americans really as stupid as Barack H. Obama supposes?

Please note that even without these nefarious provisions, the ‘votes” of “voters” decide nothing. They are just popularity polls, serving to tell the slavemasters what “sells” to the sheep. “Electors” are the only ones who decide “elections”.

In fact, “Voter Registration” is one of the chief means these rotters use to claim that we are “US citizens” and subject to them and their corporate rules. Any time that you see the words “registration” or “application” be aware that you are giving up something precious in exchange for something either worthless or downright damaging. When you “register” as a “voter”, you automatically identify yourself as someone claiming slave status, and you give up your birthright to function as an “elector”.

So, all of you with ears to hear, get busy and write to the local “Voter Registration Office” and tell them that you made a mistake. You aren’t a “US citizen” nor a “U.S. Citizen”—-you are an American State Citizen—and you rescind your signature on their records and forms accordingly.

If you continue to feel any unreasoning urge to vote in their private corporate elections, please be advised that Section II of the Fourteenth Amendment of their most recent public charter known as the “Constitution for the United States of America” makes it illegal for anyone who is not a “US citizen” —that is, a federal employee, civil or active duty military, Negro, foreign welfare recipient, or natural born inhabitant of a “federal state” like Puerto Rico or “enclave” like Washington, DC—-to vote in THEIR elections.

You’ve most likely been breaking their law all these years and never knew it, and they have gladly let you do it because it gives them an excuse to lay claim to you and your assets and boss you around and hypothecate their debts against your credit and all sorts of other juicy advantages to them at your expense. It also gives them an excuse to arrest you any time they like and charge you for this “crime” secretly in their very own corporate tribunals. What could be more convenient?

So not only do you need to tear up those “Voter Registration Cards” and stop being fooled by all the “political process” hurrah– that is, drop out of political parties, because they, too, are strictly associated with the corporation masquerading as “your” government— you can also stop giving money to THEIR candidates and wasting time spinning your wheels.

If you want the abuse and theft and deceit to be over, you have to re-create your own PUBLIC offices on the land jurisdiction of your States. Run for THOSE offices. Support THOSE candidates.   Just like we have to rebuild the American Court system and the American monetary system, we have to rebuild the American government institutions— because, surprise, surprise—the banks took over the corporation providing you with “governmental services” a long time ago, and they haven’t been doing a good job for you.

A Republic doesn’t run itself and it can’t depend on outside “help”.

If you want to be free, now is the time.

Stop being hoodwinked by these fraud artists and driven “like dumb driven cattle”.

Just say, “No!”

The Not So Smart ALEC

07/23/2014

http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/item/18081-the-not-so-smart-alec

7-23-2014 4-59-15 PM

Written by  William F. Jasper

“Limited Government • Free Markets • Federalism.” That is the motto of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which appears on their literature and on the banner of every page of the organization’s website. ALEC’s “about” page expands on that theme, explaining:

The American Legislative Exchange Council works to advance limited government, free markets, and federalism at the state level through a nonpartisan public-private partnership of America’s state legislators, members of the private sector and the general public.

ALEC’s stated philosophy and goals resonate with liberty-minded Americans, which, undoubtedly, is why many politically conservative state legislators and activist citizens look to it for leadership in rolling back the oppressive hand of Big Government. However, the well-funded and well-connected organization is alienating many of its erstwhile supporters by its support for dangerous trade pacts that threaten the sovereignty of the United States, as well as its efforts to promote a constitutional convention, which could result in the complete destruction of our already tattered and battered U.S. Constitution. That could spell the end of any hope to return to limited government, free markets, and responsible federalism.

Founded in 1973, ALEC has just celebrated its 40th anniversary and is experiencing both the joys of prominent national influence and the pains of harsh criticism. The organization can boast a membership that includes more than 2,000 state legislators and hundreds of corporations, as well as dozens of think tanks, foundations, and non-profit organizations.

For the past several years ALEC has been under attack from a gaggle of left-wing organizations — Color of Change, Common Cause, People for the American Way, Progress Now, the Center for Media and Democracy, the Sierra Club — that claim the organization’s corporate ties and corporate funding have put it in the pocket of big business. These and similar groups have lambasted ALEC for its model legislation opposing federal EPA regulations, gun control laws, “green” energy mandates, and “climate change” carbon taxes, and its support for laws supporting voter identification, “Stand Your Ground” protection, school choice, and privatization of public services. Major media outlets, such as the New York Times, Huffington Post, MSNBC, and CNN joined The Nation, Media Matters, and other radical-left detractors in attacking ALEC for these sins against the progressive gospel. The highly politicized shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida in 2012 provided the key event that ALEC’s critics could leverage to crack the organization’s growing impact. Utilizing the media-created furor over the shooting, the left-wing activist groups launched a petition-pressure campaign that spotlighted ALEC’s support for “Stand Your Ground” laws. The result was an exodus, as major corporations and legislators fled ALEC to avoid the controversy.

For many of ALEC’s staunchest supporters, the attacks on the organization — and the liberal-left/progressive sources from which they usually emanate — only prove its bona fides as a defender of free enterprise and constitutional government. They should know better by now. The same alliance of left-wing activists and the liberal establishment media regularly confer legitimacy on false conservatives pseudo-conservatives and business lobbies that promote Big Government by attacking them for not being “progressive” enough. Examples abound: Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Manufacturing Association, the American Medical Association — to name but a very small cohort. These politicians and organizations have excelled at co-opting the rhetoric of free markets and limited government, but often go in exactly the opposite direction. In the remainder of this article, we will examine several of the areas where we contend ALEC is following a similarly deceptive path.

Trading Away Sovereignty

At its Model Policies Annual Meeting 2013, ALEC members adopted a “Resolution Supporting the Successful Negotiation of a Comprehensive and Commercially Meaningful Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).” The summary of the resolution, provided on ALEC’s website, states:

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) Agreement has the potential to be the largest trade framework ever negotiated underscoring the importance of ensuring that it is a high standard, comprehensive agreement with strong intellectual property provisions. In keeping with the American Legislative Exchange Council’s (ALEC’s) support of the Jeffersonian principle of free markets and ALEC’s past support of a wide variety of trade frameworks, this resolution supports the negotiation and final ratification of such an agreement.

Similarly, the organization has adopted a “Resolution Urging Congress to Pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP).” The resolution summary states:

Drawing on ALEC’s guiding free market principles, this resolution calls on Congress to support negotiations for a high standard, comprehensive Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)…. The TPP has the potential to become the benchmark against which future trade frameworks will be measured for years to come.

The TTIP’s promoters portray it as a “trade” agreement between the United States and the 28 member states of the European Union, while the TPP advocates similarly claim they are merely working to expand trade between the United States and 11 Pacific partners: Canada, Mexico, Peru, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Vietnam, and Japan. The trade engendered by these agreements, say the promoters, will bring prosperity to all, including millions of promised good-paying jobs. Regular readers of The New American are already well aware of the many dangers posed by the TTIP and the TPP, which are being pushed aggressively by the Obama administration and the usual globalist elites at the New York Times, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Brookings Institution, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Among the many articles we have published, in our print edition and online, are the comprehensive “Secretly Trading Away Our Independence,” from our May 20, 2013 print edition, and the entire special issue of our September 2, 2013 magazine devoted to the topic, “How the Free Trade Agenda Is Knocking Down America” (available as a free pdf download at http://www.thenewamerican.com/files/TNA2917.pdf).

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.

Liberty-minded Americans who truly believe in the rule of law and the form of limited government envisioned by our Founders should be working to remove our country from these freedom-destroying organizations, not subjecting us to even more of the same. Even if the agreements dealt only with “trade” issues, the structures and procedures they set in place would be pregnant with dangers because they initiate a developing, ongoing process that is a guarantee of “mission creep,” with an ever-expanding transnational bureaucracy claiming ever more power over our personal, local, state, and national affairs. Obama administration officials acknowledge that the TTIP/TPP agreements deal with agriculture, environment, labor, telecommunications, financial services, and much more. And documents that have been leaked thus far have revealed additional dangers, such as TPP draft proposals that would dramatically curtail free speech on the Internet.

Another disturbing feature of both the TTIP and TPP is the secrecy and intrigue that have become their hallmarks. The American people and their elected representatives in Congress have not been allowed access to the TTIP/TPP negotiation process, nor have they been allowed to see the draft text of the agreements. However, the Obama administration has given representatives of major corporations, labor unions, environmental organizations, and other NGO activist “stakeholders” official access to both the negotiation proceedings and the texts. Thus the TTIP and TPP have become a joint project of Big Government, Big Business, Big Labor, and Big Green (although the Big Labor/Big Green contingents pretend to oppose at least some features of the agreements). The secrecy of the TTIP/TPP process is, in and of itself, a huge red flag alerting all except the willfully blind that something is amiss. ALEC should find this aspect of TTIP/TPP thoroughly objectionable, since it has made a pointed commitment to transparency in government. A perusal of ALEC literature and the organization’s “model policies” web page reveals numerous bills sponsored by ALEC devoted to transparency and criticizing officialdom for withholding information from citizens. The Transparency and Government Accountability Act, Local Government Transparency Act, and the Taxpayer Transparency Act are but three of many model bills crafted by ALEC demanding openness and access for citizens.

Yet still another strike against the TTIP and TPP is the explicit admissions by the top promoters that they intend these agreements to initiate an “integration” process that will continually “widen” (adding more nations) and “deepen” (adding more economic, political, and social issues) with time. This is the same widening-deepening integration process that has gradually transformed the Common Market “trade” bloc into the increasingly tyrannical EU leviathan ruled by central authorities in Brussels. And TTIP/TPP champions have repeatedly expressed their hopes of following the EU path toward centralized power. As of yet, ALEC has not explained how it can square its “Limited Government, Free Markets, and Federalism” philosophy with these TTIP/TPP flaws that are completely at variance with it.

Constitutional Malpractice

For many years ALEC has been a leading promoter of the idea that the U.S. Constitution must be amended to require a balanced budget. This, of course, appeals to conservatively minded legislators who recognize that continued liberal spendthrift policies are immoral and unsustainable, and lead our nation toward financial Armageddon. ALEC has used the Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) attraction to argue for an Article V Convention of the States, which constitutionalists (including the editors and writers of this magazine) contend is a dangerous gamble that risks the entire Constitution for an amendment that could not be relied on to rein in Washington, D.C.’s ravenous appetite for spending — even if the convention could be restricted to that one issue. The problem is that, ALEC’s assurances to the contrary, once a constitutional convention  is called, it becomes a power unto itself and there is no way to limit its power to amend, revise, or toss out and completely rewrite the Constitution. ALEC claims that fears of a “runaway convention” of this sort are misplaced, and they have published Article V: A Handbook for State Lawmakers to make their case for a constitutional convention (aka Article V convention). They have also produced a “Resolution for Limitations on Authority of Delegates to a ‘Convention for Proposing Amendments’ (Article V, United States of America Constitution).” This resolution, says ALEC,“will eliminate the possibility of a ‘runaway convention,’ the reason most often cited by scholars for their opposition to an Article V 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.”

But in making this claim, ALEC is on very shaky ground. This is clear, first of all, from our nation’s own history. Our first — and so far, only — constitutional convention, which took place in Philadelphia in 1787, was a “runaway convention,” despite restrictions on delegates similar to those advocated by ALEC. That gathering, in violation of its mandate, threw out the Articles of Confederation that it had been convened to amend, and drew up a completely new governing document. The fact that the product of that breach of trust turned out to be as sound and salutary as it has proved to be should not incite hope that a repeat of the same process would end so well.

James Madison, often referred to as the “father” of the Constitution, said the contemplation of another constitutional convention caused him to “tremble” due to the violent partisanship and “insidious views” so prevalent in his day. Have things so improved that we should be less concerned in our own day? Who but a fool or a knave would say so? Madison warned:

If a General Convention were to take place for the avowed and sole purpose of revising the Constitution, it would naturally consider itself as having a greater latitude than the Congress appointed to administer and support as well as to amend the system; it would consequently give greater agitation to the public mind; an election into it would be courted by the most violent partizans [sic] on both sides [and] would no doubt contain individuals of insidious views, who under the mask of seeking alterations popular in some parts but inadmissible in other parts of the Union might have a dangerous opportunity of sapping the very foundations of the fabric.

“Under all these circumstances it seems scarcely to be presumeable [sic] that the deliberations of the body could be conducted in harmony, or terminate in the general good,” he averred. “Having witnessed the difficulties and dangers experienced by the first Convention which assembled under every propitious circumstance,” Madison concluded, “I should tremble for the result of a second meeting in the present temper of America, and under all the disadvantages I have mentioned.”

Noted constitutional scholars of our own time from across the political spectrum — from liberal Supreme Court Justices Warren Burger and Arthur Goldberg to Professors Lawrence Tribe of Harvard and Gerald Gunther of Stanford (both liberals) to Professors Charles Rice of Notre Dame and Rex Lee of Brigham Young (both conservatives) — have echoed Madison, offering their learned opinions that a constitutional convention cannot be limited in its scope, either by Congress or state legislatures. We can say for certain that regardless of the outcome of such a convention there would be dissatisfied factions that would challenge the final product, causing a constitutional impasse and, most probably, sending the whole issue before the U.S. Supreme Court, which has hardly proven to be a staunch defender of limited government. The end result well could be that our U.S. Constitution, which ALEC claims to support, would become a dead letter if ALEC’s “free trade” agenda  were to come to fruition.

Government-Business Cronyism

Still another area of concern to ALEC’s critics on both the Right and Left is the organization’s support for “public-private partnerships.” 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 centerpiece of its statist program. And many of ALEC’s member corporations are also partners in Obama’s Fedgov/Big Business “Manufacturing Innovation” consortiums and other P3 endeavors. Those favored corporate cronies 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 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. “Fascism,” writes Lew Rockwell, president of the genuinely free market-oriented Ludwig von Mises Institute, “is the system of government that cartelizes the private sector, centrally plans the economy to subsidize producers, exalts the police state as the source of order, denies fundamental rights and liberties to individuals, and makes the executive state the unlimited master of society.” And it is precisely this kind of cartelized, centrally planned, fascist economy that the ALEC/USCC/Obama/corporate alliance is producing.

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);

• Big Insurance (Blue Cross Blue Shield, Farmers Group, GEICO, Liberty Mutual, State Farm, Travelers);

• Big Tech (Yahoo, Facebook, Google, AT&T, eBay, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, Sony);

• Big Soda (Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group);

• Big Liquor (Seagram & Sons, Hiram Walker, Miller-Coors);

• Big Box Stores (Best Buy, Home Depot, JC Penney, Lowe’s);

• Big Auto (Ford, GM, Toyota, Chrysler).

ALEC’s critics on the Left erroneously cite these cozy 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.

ALEC may have started out well with the right intentions to promote free enterprise and limited constitutional government — and some of its proposals still do support those worthy efforts — but, as we have shown here, on some very fundamental issues the organization has drifted far from core beliefs proclaimed in its motto. ALEC members who truly adhere to constitutionalist and free market principles would do well to examine the organization more closely and either direct it back on course or cut ties with it, so as not to support harmful legislation and discredit the principles they profess to support.

Confirmed General Carter F Ham Appointed Joint Chiefs Noticed by order of Grand Jury.

07/22/2014

http://mainerepublicemailalert.com/author/drobin88/

Signed…Sealed…Proof of Delivery…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Posted: July 3, 2014 | Author: David Robinson |

RELEASED BY: Admin. David Robinson, 207-798-4695
UNIFIED MAINE COMMON LAW GRAND JURY
3 Linnell Circle, Brunswick, Maine, 04011
LEX NATURALIS — DEI GRATIA

PRESS RELEASE
For JULY 4, 2014

ON June 19, 2014 the organic American states of the Union — known as The United States of America exercising plenary civil power upon the land — issued Orders 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; and Appointed General Carter F. Ham to lead and command The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) and its successors under the guidance of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and with their full support.

The Orders stipulated that should it become necessary to suppress commercial mercenary forces operating under the guise of being federal government agencies — including but not limited to the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Emergency Management Administration, the Internal Revenue Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, etc. — General Ham shall assume immediate command and control of all armed forces and services owed to The United States of America stationed in North America and shall join them under his Command as The Grand Army of the Republic. And that all forces of air, land, and sea are to be employed.

Any cost or loss suffered as a result of deployment of The Grand Army of the Republic shall be charged as previously stipulated.

All effort shall be made by The Grand Army of the Republic to spare life and property while undertaking any action whatsoever within the states of the Union without exception.

The GAR is uniquely enabled by these Orders to operate on the land of the fifty (50) organic states for the purposes of securing the lives and property of the American States and American State Citizens. The GAR is not a foreign army and is composed primarily of American State Citizens.

If they are required to take field positions, the local commanders are ordered to make every effort to communicate the basis of their authority and the reasons for their presence on American State soil to ensure a prompt cessation of hostilities and a widespread understanding of the usurpation’s and acts of fraud which have led to any conflict.

All parties must be brought to understand the nature of the federal government, the limitations of its authority, and their own obligation to act in favor of the organic states of the Union.

The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) shall continue to operate under General Orders 100 known as the Lieber Code, extant from the pen of the last Republic President, Abraham Lincoln.

No orders, Executive or otherwise, issued by Barack H. Obama pretending authority on the land of the American States while operating as “President” of the UNITED STATES Corporation nor as the “President” of the United States of America, are owed any performance by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Ham, or any Ordinary.

All plainly stated grants of contractual authority evident in The Constitution for the united States of America remain in place, subject to good faith performance of the accompanying obligations and treaties.

Mr. Obama is the “President” of a governmental services corporation under contract to provide stipulated services to the organic states and is on their payroll. He otherwise acts as a foreign dignitary representing the United States of America, Inc. In neither of these capacities is he allowed any granted authority to impose upon American State Citizens, endanger American State property, or command mercenary forces on American State soil — however veiled as federal civilian service agencies.

The Orders require the Joint Chiefs of Staff and General Ham to commence measures to disarm federal civilian agency personnel and to seize control of the vast stockpiles of arms which have been improperly amassed by “the Department of Homeland Security”, FEMA, and other agencies employed by the UNITED STATES.

The only federal agency allowed free egress on the land of the American States is the U.S. Marshals Service, and then only when their personnel are engaged in their duty to protect the U.S. Mail and sworn to act as constitutional officers. All other federal agency personnel are limited to unarmed service until further notice.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff are directed to communicate these General Civil Orders directly to Mr. Obama, the members of the “US Congress”, the administrators of all “federal” agencies, the members of the “Supreme Court” and those acting as “Governors” to compel their rapid understanding and cooperation.

Any expense or damage incurred by these organic states or any American State Citizen as a result of actions undertaken by any federal agency personnel acting as armed mercenaries on American State soil will be understood as the result of violent crimes committed against the peaceful inhabitants of the land and will incur immediate judgment liquidating the assets of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Federal Reserve (FEDERAL RESERVE) in payment of the stipulated reparations. Such crimes shall also be considered contract default increasing the public debt subject to bounty.

Any and all corporate officers of the UNITED STATES or any successor organization(s) inheriting “federal” service contracts who support, condone, or promote such crimes against the American States or against American State Citizens shall be subject to arrest and prosecution for commercial and violent crimes.

All foreign officials operating as elected or appointed officials of the United States of America (minor) who support, condone, or promote such crimes against the American States or against American State Citizens shall be subject to arrest, confiscation of their assets, and deportation to Puerto Rico, Guam, or such other “states” as may be willing to receive them.

Such “foreign officials” include members of the American and British Bar Associations who were licensed to act as privateers against the interests of the American States and the American State Citizens from 1845 to 2013 in flagrant Breach of Trust. All such licenses are now extinguished. Members of the Bar Associations are required to cease and desist assaults against the American States and American State Citizens and shall be subject to arrest, confiscation, and deportation otherwise.

Insomuch as corporate officers operating the United States of America, Incorporated, and the UNITED STATES have contrived under conditions of fraud and semantic deceit to re-venue the estates of the American States and living American State Citizens to the foreign jurisdiction of the United States of America (minor) they are found guilty of capital crimes, including acts of fraud and treason committed between 1933 and 1945, and are condemned posthumously.

Insomuch as elected officials operating the United States of America (minor) have similarly committed war crimes against the American States and their peaceful inhabitants during the same time period, they stand condemned posthumously.

No enforcement upon any American State or American State Citizen is owed as a result of any “Act” of any “Congress” operating as the sovereign government of the United States of America (minor) nor as the Board of Directors or Board of Trustees of any incorporated entity whatsoever.

All those (E)states and ESTATES erroneously believed to represent the American States and American State Citizens and which were conveyed by fraud and legal deceit to the United States of America (minor) and more recently to the City-State of the United Nations, are re-venued without exception to the geographically defined American States and the American State Citizens where they shall remain in perpetuity as assets belonging to the rightful and lawful beneficiaries.

All legal fiction entities however structured and named after the American States and American State Citizens are returned to them and their control, free and clear of any debt, promise, encumbrance or obligation alleged against them as a result of false claims made “in their behalf” by officers of the United States of America, Inc. and the UNITED STATES, INC. or by any foreign officials operating the United States of America (minor), or the United Nations City State falsely claiming to “represent” them or have jurisdiction over them.

The current circumstance is in part the result of criminal acts engaged in 150 years ago, which resulted in the commercial enslavement of African Americans who were summarily claimed as chattels backing “US government” debt in the wake of the Civil War. Despite every act of abolition and declaration of prohibition against both peonage and slavery, it has been the policy of the “US government” to enslave its citizens and to operate as a rogue state among the nations of the world.

Instead of freeing African Americans the sum total result of the Civil War was to vastly expand public sector ownership of slaves, giving rise to the outrageous and improper claims that have been made against the American States and the American State Citizens that we are dealing with today.

It is uniquely fitting that The Grand Army of the Republic is recalled to settle this circumstance in favor of the people.

These Orders were addressed to and received by:

Joint Chief of Staff
9999 Joint Staff

PROOF THAT THE U S FINANCIAL SYSTEM IS A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE OPERATION

07/21/2014

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/07/20/proof-that-the-u-s-financial-system-is-a-criminal-enterprise-operation/

By Dave Hodges

What was revealed in the previous article should shake the confidence that the public has in the DEA and the federal government as a whole. My DEA insider has revealed that there is massive, unchecked banking fraud and money laundering occurring within our financial institutions. Our banks are run like a Mafia protection racket. If you doubt the accuracy of this statement, ask yourself why are we witnessing a massive kill off of banking officials from the nation’s largest banks? The answer is simple, dead men tell no tales.

The following is not entertainment reading. This is a systematic report which details certain DEA operations and it is the story of how justice is muted when it comes to drug trafficking. There is complicity in these illegal enterprises from official government and corporate entities, particularly the banks. If being amused is the goal of your reading, today, you might want to skip over this article. However, if you truly desire to begin to get an idea of how things work, then you will not be disappointed.

Before revealing the partial extent that money fraud has been revealed to me, let’s review the major facts as ascertained by my DEA informant.

1. The SANCHEZ-Paredes drug cartel provides the bulk of drugs to the Sinaloa cartel.

2. The SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel is protected by the American trained Peruvian military and has strong ties to Hamas, an international terrorist organization.

3. The last three DEA special agents who attempted to investigate the SANCHEZ-Paredes were fired by DEA station director, Patrick Stenkamp. The leaders of the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel travel freely to the United States and own homes in the country. This would require the State Department and the DEA “to look the other way”.

4. In Chicago district court testimony, it was revealed that the Sinaloa cartel struck a deal with the DEA to provide intelligence on other cartel drug shipments in exchange for a guarantee for shipping in 80% of its drugs to the United States without interference. As outrageous as this claim was, the validation of this fact did not require the revelation of an informant. The media coverage of this event is overwhelming, even if it was  mostly ignored by the MSM. Defenders of the deal say that this is the cost of catching most of the drug dealers and drug shipments. Skeptics see the DEA as being involved in protecting the drug shipments of the elite from competition.

This installment reveals, to some extent, the existence of an elaborate money laundering scheme which must exist in order to legitimize the drug profits.

Before presenting the money laundering schemes, let’s first take a look at banking laws that the average American citizen must follow.

The Banking Regulations That You Must Follow

There are definitive banking regulations that you, as an American, must follow. If you do not, you go to prison for a very long time.  Let’s review the draconian regulations that you must follow, but the federal government and its agencies, such as the DEA and the State Department have no similar restrictions.

Cash Transaction Report (CRT)

Federal law requires that a bank file a report based upon any withdrawal or deposit of $10,000 or more on any single given day. The law was designed to put a damper on money laundering, sophisticated counterfeiting and other federal crimes.

To remain in compliance with the law, financial institutions must obtain personal identification, information about the transaction and the social security number of the person conducting the transaction.

Technically, there is no federal law prohibiting the use of large amounts of cash. However, a CTR must be filed in ALL cases of cash transaction regardless of the reason underlying the transaction. This means your cash transaction will be on the radar. And when the feds come knocking, it will be up to you to prove your innocence as there will be a presumption of guilt because, more than likely, your accounts will be frozen or seized by the federal government.

Structuring and Suspicious Activity Report (SAR)

There will undoubtedly be some geniuses whose math ability will tell them that all they have to do is to withdraw $9,999.99 and the bank and its protector, the federal government will be none the wiser. It is not quite that simple. Here are a few examples of structuring violations that one should be aware of:

1. Barry S. has obtained $15,000 in cash he obtained from selling his truck. He knows that if he deposits $15,000 in cash, his financial institution will be required to file a CTR. Instead he deposits $7,500 in cash in the morning with one financial institution employee and comes back to the financial institution later in the day to another employee to deposit the remaining $7,500, hoping to evade the CTR reporting requirement. Barry should have used multiple accounts to conduct this transaction. The Feds will be visiting Barry.
2. Hillary C. needs $16,000 in cash to pay for supplies for her arts and crafts business. Hillary cashes an $8,000 personal check at a financial institution on a Monday. She subsequently cashes another $8,000 personal check at the bank the following day. Hillary is careful to have cashed the two checks on different days and structured the transactions in an attempt to evade the CTR reporting requirement. Hillary should have made irregular deposits on staggered days. The Feds will be visiting Hillary.
3. A married couple, Bill and Hillary, sell a vehicle for $12,000 in cash. To evade the CTR reporting requirement, Bill and Hillary structure their transactions using different accounts. Bill deposits $8,000 of that money into his and Hillary’s joint account in the morning. Later that day, Hillary deposits $1,500 into the joint account, then $2,500 into her sister’s account, which is later transferred to Bill and Hillary’s joint account at the same bank. Again, Bill and Hillary should have used multiple banks. The Feds will be visiting Bill and Hillary.

The aggregate total of the three transactions totals more than the $10,000 threshold, therefore, a SAR would be filed by the bank and you would be the subject of a federal investigation as all three of the above cases clearly violate the federal banking laws related to structuring. It is a federal crime to break up transactions into smaller amounts for the purpose of evading the CTR reporting requirement. In these instances, the bank is required to file a SAR which serves to notify the federal government of an individual’s attempt to structure deposits or withdrawals by circumventing the $10,000 reporting requirement.

Structuring transactions to prevent a CTR from being reported can result in imprisonment for not more than five years and/or a fine of up to $250,000. If structuring involves more than $100,000 in a twelve month period or is performed while violating another law of the federal government, the penalty is doubled.

The Draconian Enforcement of Banking Laws

Much like the enforcement of our tax laws, the federal government’s enforcement of its banking laws as it relates to CTR’s, SAR’s and subsequent structuring is quite draconian. Civilian asset forfeiture laws come into play. The government can seize your bank accounts while it determines if a crime has been committed. There is no more presumption of innocence. The government can literally seize your assets in perpetuity without an order of the court. Of course, you could try and sue, but you will be up against the deep pockets of the federal government and the case could take years. By the time your case is decided, the financial banking crisis that you are so desperately trying to avoid by withdrawing your money, could be over.

In the following paragraphs, you will quickly see that that the drug cartels and the agencies of the federal government do not play by the same rules as you and I.

The DEA Runs Interference for Money Launderers

In subsequent voice and written communications, my DEA insider source revealed the following, “We identified a Peruvian Sanchez-Paredes cartel money laundering storefront in Miami called “Pacific Gateway”.  Pacific Gateway is a known money laundering source.  An analysis of Pacific Gateway yielded an unpublished telephone party line number located in Lima, Peru that was owned by the Sanchez-Paredes gold mine company, Minersa San Simon. Telephone analysis showed that this number was communicating with stateside numbers connected to a dozen DEA, FBI and ICE cases involving drugs, money laundering and organized crime”. Subsequently, the DEA agents in Peru concluded that they had found “dirty agents” in these three federal agencies who were helping the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel and the elite in this country who profit from drug trafficking, to launder their drug profits inside of the United States. Pacific Gateway was the port of entry for laundered Peruvian drug money and the DEA office in Lima had the proof as well being able to identify members of the FBI, DEA and ICE as participants in this plot.

Very quickly, the DEA special agents in Peru learned that major U.S. financial institutions were involved in the money laundering scheme. The DEA informant went on to say that, “We also noted that Peruvians associated with Pacific Gateway were operating in Phoenix and Connecticut.  Phoenix made sense because of its proximity to the border and the easy access to the Sinaloa cartel and the need to launder money was obvious. However, the Connecticut connection made no sense, that is until one follows the flow of money. A financial analysis demonstrated that Met-Mex Penoles, a Mexican gold company, is headquartered in Connecticut. Met-Mex Penoles underwrites the retirement system for the entire Peruvian Military.” This is how the Peruvian military is paid off.

(Editor’s Note: I have learned that Met-Mex Penoles is connected to Goldman Sachs and its partner, Wells Fargo Wachovia. Hence, we see the drug money now making it into the major players of the American financial system. And this is only one of the major ways that drug money was being laundered into major American banks). Outside of my DEA informant, I can prove these major banks, turned money laundering institutions, go even deeper. and are more deeply involved in this plot than anyone can imagine.)

State Department Complicity

It is at this point, that it is important to mention that the State Department is complicit in these money laundering schemes. It should be noted that all overseas financial transactions by the DEA must first be approved by the State Department. This means that nobody gets investigated, outside the United States, unless the State Department sanctions the expenditure. This gives the State Department complete power to kill any investigation and the State Department has done just that with regard to the SANCHEZ-Paredes cartel.

My DEA insider source further stated that, “The report which I submitted on my last day in the office was never published and a month after I submitted it the telephone number which we monitored went dead. All my efforts to find out why the report was not published were stonewalled by DEA management as there was no money in which to conduct an investigation.  Remember, the State Department controls all foreign DEA spending. Further, it was revealed in Part One that the known criminals and leaders of the SANCHEZ-Paredes traveled freely to the United States where they also own homes. This would take State Department cooperation as well”.

The DEA informant went on to describe how a Peruvian generated report he filed led to the bust of a SANCHEZ-Paredes/Sinaloa drug ring in New York. He stated that “Prior to leaving Lima I provided a draft to DEA New York who used the information to seize $30 million dollars all of which was subsequently returned to the Sanchez-Paredes. This can be confirmed by news reports and official Southern a district of New York press releases”. One needs to understand that the State Department could not block the funding of the New York investigation because the operation was domestic. However, despite a money laundering asset seizure of $30 million dollars, the money was returned to the drug cartel(s). This means that the Department of Justice had to intervene. Why was the money returned to these criminals? Remember, in Part One, the Sinaloa cartel members gave testimony in a Chicago court  that they had reached an agreement to provide intelligence information to the DEA in exchange to bring their drugs into this country.

The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI Are Involved In the Cover-Up

Serendipitously, I have interviewed John Cruz on a number of occasions on my radio show and much of the money laundering plot revealed to me by the DEA informant, was stumbled upon by Mr. Cruz. John Cruz was a former Vice President at HSBC bank in New York. John discovered that many of the accounts under his purview were money laundering enterprises in which the address for a series of bank accounts were no more than an abandoned houses or buildings with nothing more than a phone line. His investigation demonstrated that the Sinaloa cartel was the primary player in the money laundering on the part of HSBC bank. When Cruz approached senior level management at HSBC, he was told to keep his mouth shut or he would lose his job. John subsequently went to DHS and the FBI where he was ignored and he was fired by HSBC. He then went to the Manhattan District Attorney and he was advised to drop the matter because this was too dangerous to pursue. Cruz has written a book about his ordeal. The Cruz case also exposed the fact that these cartel members steal identities in order to open these “fake” accounts at HSBC bank. This is significant because we always hear that identity theft is such an important issue and that the government is doing everything they can do to mitigate the danger, when in fact, these same government entities are complicit in the crime.

Last year, I interviewed decorated ex-FBI and DEA operative, Robert Mazur. Mazur was involved in the taking down of the Pablo Escobar cartel. He also participated in busting the BCCI banking scandal. On my show, Mazur named off a half a dozen large banks that are complicit in money laundering drug money. In the final analysis, the DEA insider’s story is not really needed to make the case that our entire financial system is a criminal enterprise system. However, his revelations show the operation details and how legitimate law enforcement agents cannot really do their job.

Conclusion

HSBC bank is the “bankers bank”. This means that Bank of America, JP Morgan, etc., bank with HSBC. If they are dirty, then the whole banking system is dirty. These are the banks that comprise the Federal Reserve which runs our financial system.

In this article, we have seen the cooperation of DEA, the State Department, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. If legitimate DEA special agents do not have anywhere to turn with their field work discoveries, then how can any American trust the financial system? People have criticized me for advocating for getting as much of your money out of this corrupt financial system as possible. Perhaps the defenders of the system, may want to take a second look at a criminal system that they put so much faith in.

The American financial system is a criminal enterprise endeavor. Both federal and corporate entities have conspired to break this nation’s laws. You are expected to follow the laws as they are related to CTR’s, SAR’s and structuring. However, the federal government breaks every one of these laws on a daily basis. It is a case of rules for thee but not for me!

One might also want to ask what do the multitude of dead bankers have to do with this plot?

In addition to these revelations, the DHS insider also gave me details on how the DEA will be involved in upcoming gun confiscation, the Continuity of Government for the false flag events which could be coming and the preparations for mass detentions in this country. The DEA is so dirty that they even eat their own. More on these issues in a future installment on this series.

The Reasons We Fight The New World Order

07/20/2014

http://www.activistpost.com/2014/07/the-reasons-we-fight-new-world-order.html#more

Countless people … will hate the new world order … and will die protesting against it. — H.G. Wells,The New World Order (1940)

By Brandon Smith

Activist Post

Throughout our lives and throughout our culture, we are conditioned to rally around concepts of false division. We are led to believe that Democrats and Republicans are separate and opposing parties, yet they are actually two branches of the same political-control mechanism. We are led to believe that two nations such as the United States and Russia are geopolitical enemies, when, in fact, they are two puppet governments under the dominance of the same international financiers. Finally, we are told that the international bankers themselves are somehow separated by borders and philosophies, when the reality is all central banks answer to a singular authority: the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).

We are regaled with stories of constant conflict and division. Yet the truth is there is only one battle that matters, only one battle that has ever mattered: the battle between those people who seek to control others and those people who simply wish to be left alone.

The “New World Order” is a concept created not in the minds of “conspiracy theorists” but in the minds of those who seek to control others. These are the self-appointed elite who fancy themselves grandly qualified to determine the destiny of every man, woman and child at the expense of individual freedom and self-determination.  Such elites are often very open about their globalist intentions and ambitions, much like author H.G. Wells, a socialist member of the Fabian Society and friend to the internationalist establishment who put forth his blueprint for world governance in the book quoted above.  In this article, I would like to examine the nature of our war with the elite and why their theories on social engineering are illogical, inadequate and, in many cases, malicious and destructive.

The ‘Greater Good’

I have always found it fascinating that while elitists and NWO champions constantly proclaim that morality is relative and that conscience is not inherent, somehow they are the ones who possess the proper definition of the “greater good.” If “good” is in all cases relative, then wouldn’t the “greater good” also be entirely relative? This inconsistency in their reasoning does not seem to stop them from forcing the masses through propaganda or violence to accept their version of better judgment.
As many psychologists and anthropologists (including Carl Jung and Steven Pinker) have proven over decades of study, moral compass and conscience are not mere products of environment; they are inborn ideals outside of the realm of environmental influences. The greater good is inherently and intuitively felt by most people. Whether one listens to this voice of conscience is up to the individual.

It is no accident that NWO elites end up contradicting themselves by claiming morality to be meaningless while pronouncing THEIR personal morality to be pure. In order to obtain power over others, they must first convince members of the public that they are empty vessels without meaning or direction. They must convince the masses to ignore their inner voice of conscience. Only then will the public sacrifice freedoms to purchase answers they don’t really need from elites who don’t really have them.

Collectivism

I don’t claim to know what ideology would make a perfect society, and I certainly don’t know the exact solutions needed to get there. What I do know, though, is that no one else knows either.

Whenever anyone takes a stage to announce that only he has the answers to the world’s problems, I cannot help but be suspicious of his motives. Rarely, if ever, do I hear these people suggest that more liberty and more individualism will make a better future. Instead, their solution always entails less freedom, more control, and more force in order to mold society towards their vision.

The utopia offered by the power elite invariably demands a collectivist mindset that the individual must give up his self-determination and independence so the group can survive and thrive. The problem is no society, culture or collective can exist without the efforts and contributions of individuals. Therefore, the liberty and prosperity of the individual is far more important than the safety or even existence of the group.

The elites understand this fact, which is why they do reserve some individuality (for their own tiny circle).

No matter the guise presented — whether it be socialism, communism, fascism or some amalgamation of each — the goal is always the same: collectivism and slavery for the masses and unrestrained gluttony for the oligarchs.

The Philosophy Of Force

If your idea of a better society is a good and rational one, you should not need to use force in order to get people to accept it. Only intrinsically destructive ideas require the use of force to frighten the public into compliance. The NWO is an idea that relies entirely on force.

Globalization has been consistently sold to us as part of the natural progression of mankind, yet this “natural progression” is always advanced through the use of lies, manipulation, fear and violence. The NWO concept is one of complete centralization; a centralization that cannot be achieved without the use of terror, for who would support the creation of a malicious global power authority unless he was terrorized into doing so?

The only morally acceptable use of force is the use of force to defend against attack. As the NWO relentlessly presses forward its attack on our freedoms, we, the defenders, are labeled “violent extremists” if we refuse to go along quietly. The NWO’s dependency on force to promote its values makes it an inherently flawed methodology derived from ignorance and psychopathy, rather than wisdom and truth.

Dishonesty As Policy

As with the use of violence, the use of lies to achieve success automatically poisons whatever good may have been had through one’s efforts. The elites commonly shrug off this logic by convincing each other that there is such a thing as a “noble lie” (both Saul Alinsky and Leo Strauss, the gatekeepers of the false left/right paradigm, promoted the use of “noble lies”) and that the masses need to be misled so that they can be fooled into doing what is best for themselves and the world. This is, of course, a sociopathic game of self-aggrandizement.

Lies are rarely, if ever, exploited by people who want to make the lives of other men better; lies are used by people who want to make their own lives better at the expense of others. Add to this the egomaniacal assertion that the elites are lying for “our own good” when they are actually only out to elevate their power, and what you get is a stereotypical abusive relationship on a global scale.

Methodologies that have legitimate benefits to mankind deliberately seek truth and do not need to hide behind a veil of misinformation and misdirection. If a methodology requires secrecy, occultism and deceit in order to establish itself in a culture, then it is most likely a negative influence on that culture, not a positive one.

The Hands Of The Few

Why does humanity need a select elite at all? What purpose does this oligarchy really serve? Is centralized power really as efficient and practical as it is painted to be? Or is it actually a hindrance to mankind and an obstacle in our quest to better ourselves? Champions of the NWO argue that global governance is inevitable and that sovereignty in any form is the cause of all our ills. However, I find when I look back at the finer points of history (the points they don’t teach you in college textbooks), the true cause of most of the world’s ills is obviously the existence of elitist groups.

The “efficiency” of centralization is useful only to those at the top of the pyramid, because it generally stands on a vast maze of impassable bureaucracy. It has to. No hyper-condensed authority structure can survive if the citizenry is not made dependent on it. Centralization makes life harder for everyone by removing our ability to provide our own essentials and make our own choices. That is to say, centralization removes all alternative options from the system, until the only easy path left is to bow down to the establishment.

I have never seen a solid example of centralization of power resulting in a better society or happier people. I have also never come across a select group of leaders intelligent enough and compassionate enough to oversee and micromanage the intricate workings of the whole of the Earth. There is no use for the elite, so one must ask why we keep them around?

The Opposite View

Arguing over what should be done about the state of the world is a fruitless endeavor until one considers what should be done about the state of his own life. As long as men are stricken by bias, selfish desire and lack of awareness, they will never be able to determine what is best for other people. The opposing philosophy to the NWO, the philosophy of the Liberty Movement, holds that no one has the right to impose his particular version of a perfect society on anyone else. As soon as someone does, he has committed a grievous attack against individual liberty — an attack that must be answered.

Our answer is simply that the people who want to control others be removed from positions of control and that the people who want to be left alone just be left alone. Association and participation should always be voluntary; otherwise, society loses value. This is not anarchy in the sense that consequence is removed. Rather, the rights of the individual become paramount; and the liberties of the one take precedence over the ever vaporous demands of some abstract group.

The most common retort to this principle of valuing the individual over collective fear is that “someone” must apply and enforce a structure of law and accountability, otherwise, society will “fall apart” into a vortex of madness and chaos.  And perhaps that is true, though self-governance has never been allowed to exist in the history of man without immediate interference from elitist groups, so no one really knows for certain what would happen.

Doing away with overt government control, however, does not mean we do away with “law”.  Natural law, as with conscience, exists in our very biological and spiritual being, and does not require a central authority in order to be defined.  Natural law supersedes the laws of men.  In fact, the only man-made laws worth following are derived from natural law.  The primary tenet of natural law is that no one has the right to impede or erode the inherent liberties of other individuals, as long as they also respect natural laws.  The second any person violates the inborn rights of another, he has committed a trespass against natural law.  His trespasses against government authority are secondary, if not meaningless.  When one understands the unassailable existence and preeminence of natural law, he quickly discovers how trivial governments really are.

The ONLY reason for any government to exist is to safeguard individual freedom. Period. The original intent of America’s Founding Fathers was to establish a Nation that fostered this ideal. When government or oligarchy steps outside the bounds of this mandate, it is no longer providing the service it was originally designed for; and it must be dismantled. Unfortunately, it is a universal rule that uncompromising tyranny must often be met with uncompromising revolution.

When a new system arises that cannibalizes the old, enslaves our future, uses aggression against us and mutilates our founding principles in the name of arbitrary progress, that new system must be defied and ultimately destroyed. The NWO ideology represents one of the most egregious crimes against humanity of all time, posing in drag as our greatest hope. It is based, fundamentally, on everything that makes life terrible for the common man and everything our inherent conscience fights against.

We would be far better served as a species if we were to turn our back on the NWO altogether and move swiftly in the opposite direction. Imagine what tomorrow would be like if there were no controllers, no statists, no despots and no philosopher kings. Imagine a tomorrow where people respect the natural-born rights of others. Imagine a tomorrow where people’s irrational fears are not allowed to inhibit other people’s freedoms. Imagine a tomorrow where interactions between citizens and government are rare or nonexistent. Imagine if we could live our days in peace, independently building our own destinies, in which our successes and failures are our own, rather than the property of the collective. It may not be a perfect world, or a utopia, but I suspect it would be a much better place than we live in today.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

You may step back from reality because it can be barbaric, but when tyrants flourish and good peaceful men fail, and are enslaved, nothing but horrible violence will stop them, and that’s why I have been saying for years that the International Investment Banking Cartel must be eliminated right down to their heirs so they will not rebuild their empire. Leave their heirs dead broke and distribute the Bankers fortunes to the people. As always, if you must kill a snake, cut off it’s head. The thirteen families must go the way of all extinct creatures. And let us not forget their minions who have reaped untold rewards. Let them rot in prisons until they are no more. People like Daddy Bush and his putrid sons, Bill Clinton, and countless others must pay the price for their treachery. And what is their treachery?

SURREPTITIOUSLY DECLARE GOOD EVIL, AND EVIL GOOD!
