Why The Globalists Need A War, And Soon



By Brandon Smith

It is difficult to gauge and understand geopolitical and economic events without first comprehending the fact that much of what happens in the world is engineered to happen and with a specific encompassing goal in mind. If you subscribe to the theory that all is random “chaos” and outcomes are circumstantial or coincidental, then you will be lost in the dark on most things. If you think a globalist “conspiracy” would require “too much control” or foresight, I would point out that organized conspiracy by people in power is a matter of history, not of theory. If such cabals were prevalent in the past, it is rather foolish to dismiss the reality that they are prevalent today.

In my articles “The Economic End Game Explained” and “The Economic End Game Continues,” I outline considerable evidence supporting the following conclusion: International financiers and political puppets in Western AND Eastern countries share a deep rooted ideology called “globalism” or the “new world order.” This ideology demands total centralization of economy and government resulting in a single global fiscal authority, a single global monetary system and a one world ruling structure. Obviously, such a pursuit would take extensive time and planning. It is a long term project, with moments of accelerated change.

The globalists refer to the process of their intended change as the “global economic reset.” A reset of the world’s economic processes is not so far fetched as skeptics like to argue. When an organized group of ideologues maintains control over the currency production and interest rates of most nations on the planet, it would hardly be difficult to manipulate politicians, manipulate legislation or even scientifically conjure financial bubbles and collapses. By extension, it would also be simple to trigger international conflicts if needed.

But why would war be a necessary ingredient to globalization?

War is the ultimate distraction, the ultimate divider and, perhaps ironically, the ultimate consolidator. In the past century, war always seems to follow or coincide with economic crisis events that are later exposed as products of the banking elites and their aggressive monetary policies. And, in the aftermath of these wars, supranational institutions are often founded (like the League of Nations, the United Nations, the Bank for International Settlements and the International Monetary Fund) as “solutions” to preventing mass tragedies from ever happening again. War is a social steroid promoting mutation, usually in an unhealthy way.

In recent years the concept of “world war” has given way to a more insidious trend of constant and sporadic regional wars. In most cases these regional wars have helped to contribute to the steady downfall of the U.S. through accumulating national debts as well as international distrust or hatred. In fact, one might conclude that if we were to look at the macro-picture of the vast array of regional wars being perpetrated by the globalists we would see that all of them combined are amounting to a kind of world war in a different form.

That said, the globalists will need a new and far larger catalyst for their reset, and soon. Why?  Because a sizable distraction is essential to the next phase of the ongoing collapse. A pervasive scapegoat is needed; one that can be blamed for almost any negative scenario. This draws public attention away from the globalists themselves as the culprits behind fiscal crisis, maybe so much so that it will take decades before the mainstream ever questions what actually happened, if they ever question anything at all.

The fear generated through an uncertain war also acts as a form of psychological alchemy, transmuting the collective public mindset to accept centralization they never would have accepted otherwise.

Here is the issue at hand — central banks are seeking a monetary reset more than anything else. A monetary reset demands massive debt, followed by massive stimulus, followed by fiscal tightening, then massive inflation, followed by currency implosion that opens the door to a replacement structure (most likely in the form of blockchain technology and cyrptocurrency). The credit crisis of 2008 conveniently provided at least two of these elements so far, vast debt and stimulus measures. Today, we are beginning to witness the fiscal tightening phase of this process.

As I have been warning since before the Fed taper of QE, the central bank trend will lead to a removal of stimulus support, facilitating a crushing blow to bonds and equities markets. Now, interestingly enough, the Bank for International Settlements is warning of the same thing as 2017 comes to a close. It should be noted that this is not the first time the BIS warned of an impending crash; they also predicted with keen timing the derivatives and credit crash back in 2007. This was, of course, too little too late for the masses to react in any positive way, though.

Their latest warning arrives on the heels of the December Federal Reserve meeting at which it is widely expected that the central bank will raise interest rates yet again while taking the next step towards reducing their balance sheet. Many mainstream and alternative economists doubted the taper of QE and doubted the hiking of interest rates. They were wrong. Just as the doubts over the Fed balance sheet reductions are wrong. The pullback in these measures will invariably strike bonds and equities in a negative way. Time is running out.

But, the banking elites have taken steps. For example, they have in place a perfect distraction in the form of the Trump Administration. With Trump loudly and proudly taking credit for the stock market bull run over the course of the past year, who do you think the public will blame when those same markets go south as the central bank pulls the rug out? Probably not the Fed or the establishment banks.

Trump has also in an odd way created the perfect rationale for the Fed as they increase interest rates and end the cheap money that has been feeding stocks for so long. With the passage of Trump’s tax “reform” plan, the fed can now argue that interest rates MUST be raised in order to create incentives for treasury investment and to pay for Trump’s intended public works programs and military expansion goals. Meaning, the fed can claim it is not culpable for any negative effects from removing cheap capital from the table because Trump’s actions demanded it.

I would also point out that in most cases in history the Fed has lowered interest rates immediately following tax cuts and reforms. They did this after Reagan’s tax reforms in 1981 and in 1986, as well as after George W. Bush’s tax reforms in 2001. Juxtapose that with 2018, as the Fed intends to continue RAISING interest rates in the wake of Trump’s tax reforms. Meaning, they are taking the opposite action from what they have often done in the past.  Something to think about…

Trump’s tax plan itself is primarily a distraction from the real problem. First, when comparing tax brackets from this past year to the intended tax brackets for next year under the Trump reforms, there is almost no change whatsoever for the average American. The only major reductions in taxes are, no surprise, in the form of corporate tax cuts; reducing the corporate tax ceiling from 35 percent to 20 percent. This is trickle-down economics at best, and not a solution to a single problem facing the public and the country in terms of the flailing economy.

Second, why are we talking about income tax “reform” when we should be talking about abolishing the income tax and the Federal Reserve altogether? Whatever happened to that dialogue? It has disappeared down the memory hole.

Trump’s tax plan will do nothing to slow or undo the current economic crisis because the crisis stems directly from central banking monetary policies and interest rate manipulations.  Tax reform is far too little far too late, and stands as nothing more than meager bone thrown to conservatives to keep them quiet for a while.  This is what Trump’s tax reform does do very well, though — it rallies conservatives around Trump, regardless of whether it actually helps them or not. Much like Obama’s universal health care bill, which has proven to be a continued disaster in practice, but was rather successful at the time of its passage in rallying the liberal base. Trump is certainly going to need a base of public support if he is going to initiate a major war campaign.

North Korea continues to be the most likely powder keg for the next distraction event.  Two months of quiet led people with short attention spans to dismiss the notion, and perhaps some of them will double down and continue their denials, but it is growing more difficult to ignore by the day.   I would argue that North Korea is the most viable option simply because almost no one expects a war with the isolated nation to happen. The level of complacency despite all the signals to the contrary is palpable.

The U.S. has staged three aircraft carrier groups in the region for the first time in a decade. Major combat exercises are underway, designated Vigilant Ace 18, specifically designed to simulate an invasion of North Korea with over 230 aircraft and 12,000 American troops participating. North Korea has warned of “nuclear war” as a consequence.

North Korea may have the ability to follow through, at least on a limited scale, as they have recently test launched what appears to be a huge leap in missile technology — an ICBM capable of carrying multiple warheads and striking the Eastern seaboard of the U.S.  How the North Koreans came to possess this technology so quickly is a question everyone should be asking.

In response, the war rhetoric has been amplified. White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster has stated that North Korea is the greatest immediate threat to the U.S., saying that the potential for war “is increasing every day.” Warmonger and enemy of the Constitution, Lindsay Graham, has stated that the families of U.S. military personnel should be moved out of South Korea for their own safety, and that “We’re getting close to military conflict.

So how close is close? I maintain that war with North Korea is likely by the second quarter of 2018.  I also maintain the globalists will continue the strategy of multiple regional conflicts and global economic warfare rather than a one-off global nuclear mess that would wipe out trillions of dollars and decades of effort put into infrastructure and surveillance grids.

This would be advantageous to the globalists if they plan to continue interest rate hikes and stimulus removal by central banks around the world. It would help hide the effects of balance sheet reductions on stocks and it could expedite the fall of the dollar as the world reserve as Eastern and European nations apply alternatives like the IMF’s SDR basket system in response to the massive debt brought on by a military quagmire for the U.S.  In other words, catastrophic fiscal developments that were already going to happen anyway due to central bank sabotage will be entirely blamed on geopolitical crisis rather than the true culprits.

Finally, will the East step in militarily to prevent a conflict in North Korea? No. China has already stated that if North Korea attacks first, then they will not obstruct regime change by the U.S.

This flies in the face of those that believe in the false east/west paradigm.  China has left the door wide open to potential conflict.  If the globalists want a war in North Korea, they will create a war in North Korea, and the Chinese have publicly admitted they will step out of the way to let it happen. A false flag is probable. More provocations leading to a violent response by North Korea would also be rather easy to produce. So far, North Korea remains the best existing shock and awe event to hide a globally disintegrating economic situation. Would the globalists pass up an opportunity like this? There is no reason for them to do so.


Special Note: Moriarty’s speech on the “inevitability of war” is a rather accurate portrayal in my opinion of the globalist mindset – rationalizing the artificial engineering of conflicts because “human nature” dictates that such events will “happen anyway”, so why shouldn’t they benefit?  Of course, if human nature was a reliable ally of the power brokers, then they would not need to engineer these crises in the first place.  Such is the insane circular logic of organized psychopaths.

John Lennon Was Right The Government Is Run by Maniacs for Maniacal Means


 By John W. Whitehead

Not much has changed in the 37 years since John Lennon was gunned down by an assassin’s bullet.

All of the many complaints we have about government today—surveillance, corruption, harassment, political persecution, spying, over-criminalization, etc.—were used against Lennon, who never refrained from speaking truth to power and calling for social justice, peace and a populist revolution.

Little wonder, then, that the U.S. government saw Lennon as enemy number one.

A prime example of the lengths to which the U.S. government will go to persecute those who dare to challenge its authority, Lennon was the subject of a four-year campaign of surveillance and harassment by the U.S. government (spearheaded by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover), in an attempt by President Richard Nixon to have him “neutralized” and deported. As Adam Cohen of the New York Times points out, “The F.B.I.’s surveillance of Lennon is a reminder of how easily domestic spying can become unmoored from any legitimate law enforcement purpose.”

Years after Lennon’s assassination, it would be revealed that the FBI had collected 281 pages of surveillance files on him. As the New York Times notes, “Critics of today’s domestic surveillance object largely on privacy grounds. They have focused far less on how easily government surveillance can become an instrument for the people in power to try to hold on to power. ‘The U.S. vs. John Lennon’ … is the story not only of one man being harassed, but of a democracy being undermined.”

Such government-directed harassment was nothing new.

The FBI has had a long history of persecuting, prosecuting and generally harassing activists, politicians, and cultural figures, including Martin Luther King Jr.

In Lennon’s case, the ex-Beatle saw that his music could mobilize the public and help to bring about change. Yet while Lennon believed in the power of the people, he also understood the danger of a power-hungry government. “The trouble with government as it is, is that it doesn’t represent the people,” observed Lennon. “It controls them.”

By March 1971, when his “Power to the People” single was released, it was clear that Lennon was ready to participate in political activism against the U. S. government, the “monster” that was financing the war in Vietnam.

The release of Lennon’s Sometime in New York City album, which contained a radical anti-government message in virtually every song, only fanned the flames of the government’s war on Lennon.

In 1972, Nixon had the ex-Beatle served with deportation orders “in an effort to silence him as a voice of the peace movement.” Despite the fact that Lennon was not plotting to bring down the Nixon Administration, as the government feared, the government persisted in its efforts to have him deported. Equally determined to resist, Lennon dug in and fought back. Finally, in 1976, Lennon won the battle to stay in the country. By 1980, the old radical was back and ready to cause trouble.

Unfortunately, Lennon’s time as a troublemaker was short-lived.

Mark David Chapman was waiting in the shadows on Dec. 8, 1980, just as Lennon was returning to his New York apartment building. As Lennon stepped outside the car to greet the fans congregating outside, Chapman dropped into a two-handed combat stance, emptied his .38-caliber pistol and pumped four hollow-point bullets into Lennon’s back and left arm.

John Lennon was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

Much like Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Robert Kennedy and others who have died attempting to challenge the powers-that-be, Lennon had finally been “neutralized.”

Yet Lennon’s legacy lives on in his words, his music and his efforts to speak truth to power.

Even so, his work to change the world for the better is far from done.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, peace remains out of reach. Activists and whistleblowers continue to be prosecuted for challenging the government’s authority. Militarism is on the rise, all the while the governmental war machine continues to wreak havoc on innocent lives. And those who do dare to speak up are labeled dissidents, troublemakers, terrorists, lunatics, or mentally ill and tagged for surveillance, censorship or, worse, involuntary detention.

As Lennon shared in a 1968 interview:

I think all our society is run by insane people for insane objectives… I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal means. If anybody can put on paper what our government and the American government and the Russian… Chinese… what they are actually trying to do, and what they think they’re doing, I’d be very pleased to know what they think they’re doing. I think they’re all insane. But I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.”

So what’s the answer?

Lennon had a multitude of suggestions.

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”

“Produce your own dream. If you want to save Peru, go save Peru. It’s quite possible to do anything, but not to put it on the leaders….You have to do it yourself.”

“Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.”

“War is over, if you want it.”

In other words, fighting the evil of the American police state can only come about by way of conscious thoughts that are put into action.

Do you want an end to war? Then stop supporting the government’s military campaigns. Do you want government violence against the citizenry to end? Then demand that your local police de-militarize. Do you want a restoration of your freedoms? You’ll have to get the government to recognize that “we the people” are the masters in this relationship and government employees are our public servants.

The choice is ours.

The power (if we want it), as Lennon recognized, is in our hands.

“The people have the power, all we have to do is awaken that power in the people,” concluded Lennon. “The people are unaware. They’re not educated to realize that they have power. The system is so geared that everyone believes the government will fix everything. We are the government.”

For the moment, the choice is still ours: slavery or freedom, war or peace, death or life.

The point at which we have no choice is the point at which the monsters—the maniacs, the powers-that-be, the Deep State—win.

As Lennon warned, “You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die.”

This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. —Luke 2:12-13 NASU

The political climate at the birth of Christ was more volatile than we know it today in America.  If someone wanted to make an accurate movie about the times Christ was born in, it would be a fascinating movie full of war, espionage, national and personal struggle.  Rome was the terrible beast of Daniel’s vision, and had devoured most of Europe into the Middle East.  The Jews left in Judea were under the rule of Roman governors whose primary aim was to keep the captive nations in relative peaceful submission.

Just before Christ’s birth were the days of Julius Caesar.  The Roman Empire was being ruled by a triumvirate of Caesar, Pompey and Crassus, until Julius Caesar’s adopted son/nephew Caesar Augustus became the emperor of Rome in 27 B.C.  Julius Caesar, Pompey and Crassus had been busy extending the Roman Empire and conquering more kingdoms, nations and lands, so that by the time Julius Caesar was killed and Caesar Augustus inherited the rule, the Roman Empire was a prolific world power.  Their subjugated territories generally loathed their very oppressive rule, and the land of Judea was no exception.

What’s suspiciously missing in most accounts of this world history is the equally powerful Parthian Kingdom.  In fact, from (about) 64 B.C. to 225 A.D., Parthia and Rome were considered co-equal world powers.  (Think world superpowers akin to USSR/USA.)  This matters to the Christmas story, and it matters in history.  It’s important we grasp the dynamics of this to some extent, but it’s hard to find an accurate expounding of it.

Rome’s aggressive kingdom’s eastern boundary vacillated along the Euphrates River, with Armenia being a hot spot of contention for dominion.  I’m going to expound on this a little because it’s quite important.  The Scythian Kingdom was north of the Parthian Kingdom, above the Black and Caspian Seas.  Parthia was akin to the ancient Persia Empire in geography, and in its early days was in the Persian Empire.  Rome had moved across Europe and northern Africa and had taken dominion through the Middle East up to about the Euphrates River, and was constantly trying to subjugate Armenia.

Because Rome was the terrible beast of Daniel’s vision, you have to envision a formidable adversarial empire bent on conquest.  They had brutally overthrown Carthage in the famous Punic Wars and expanded across north Africa, through Egypt and into the Middle East.  They were still trying to expand east beyond Judea into what was Parthian territory.

Israel had fallen to Assyria in stages, with their capital Samaria falling in 721 B.C.  This is really important and most of what I’ve observed in western Christianity doesn’t get this right.  Israel and Judah were two different countries since the days of King Rehoboam, Solomon’s son.  They never merged again, and the northern kingdom of Israel was ten tribes, while the southern kingdom of Judah was two.  Israel fell to Assyria in 721 B.C., and while the Assyrian king took Israelites into captivity, it was in no way the entire nation of Israelites.

In fact, there were waves of captivity along with waves of mass emigration.  In 745 B.C. Israelites were carried into captivity, and then five years later Tiglath-pileser, the Assyrian King, invaded Israel and took captive three and a half tribes:  Naphtali, Reuben, Gad and the ½ tribe of Manasseh.  [See 2 Kings 15:29; 1 Chron 5:26]  At this time scores of Israelites could see the writing on the wall and fled Israel over the next decade.  Spain, Iberia and the Black Sea region were territories the Israelites resettled.  The Israelites who migrated to the Black Sea region were known as Scythians.  This is such a big deal, so big that I want to sidebar on it…

The Scythians derive their name from “Sacae” or “Saka”, which in Hebrew terms refers to the ancestor Isaac.  [Hebrew drops the vowels, and variances are run accordingly.  For example:  iSaaC becomes variances of S-C with any combination of vowels inserted.  Hence, the SaCae named themselves according to their ancestor patriarch Isaac.  The Persians called the Scythian tribes the “Sacae”.  The Encyclopedia Britannica called the Saka and Scyths “synonymous”.]  This is equally a big deal when you realize that Latin writers (think Rome again) use “x” for “c”.  So Rome referred to the Scythians as “Saxoi” or “Saxones”, from where we get “Anglo-Saxon”.  The reason this is such a big deal is part of the scattered Israelite tribes can be traced quite easily to the Scythians/Saxons.

More sidebar:  When Paul wrote in Colossians 3:11, “Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free, but Christ is all, and in all.”  He is writing contrasts, opposites.  And he places Scythians opposite of Barbarians.  “Barbarian” literally means foreigner or alien, which clearly implies Scythians were NOT foreigners.  They were in fact, fellow Israelites.

We discover that roughly 27,000 Israelites were taken captive when Samaria fell in 721 B.C. [2 Kings 17:6]  One-third of Israel were taken captive thirteen years earlier in 734 B.C.  That roughly leaves about two-thirds of the Israelites as migrants, or refugees to other lands.

End sidebar.

The reason this migration of Israelites is so important is because we need to realize they didn’t die and they weren’t in Judea; they simply moved and renamed themselves.  Scythia and Parthia were neighbors sharing a north/south border.   The Jews in Judea in the days of Christ’s birth in Bethlehem were Jews of the tribe of Judah.

Parthia was established in 521 B.C., about 200 years after the fall of Israel and Samaria.  It was a 500 year kingdom under ONE dynasty:  Arsacid.  They were known to be of common origin with the Scythians and were subjects to King Darius under Medo-Persia until they revolted and placed themselves under Scythian protection for a period of time.

I need you to connect the dots to really gain understanding here.  If they were common origin with the Scythians, they were most likely in part or whole Israelites.  The indicators of this are many.  Arsaces was the first king of Parthia, and from where they get the Arsacid dynasty name.  The Parthians used an Aramaic title for king, known as MLKYN, which literally means “king of kings”.  It is derived from the Hebrew word for king used 2500 times in the Bible:  MLK.

Parthia was ruled by what was called a “Council of Parthians” which consisted of two primary groups:  Kinsmen and Wise Men.  The Kinsmen were the royal house of the royal Arsacid male bloodline, while the Wise Men consisted of the Senate (secular leaders) and the Magi (priests).  The Wise Men and Magi were known jointly as Megistanes.

Kings were elected by a concurrent vote of the two houses.  The Parthian empire was based on a feudal system that foreshadowed medieval Europe’s feudal system.  Parthian rulers were well-educated and multi-lingual.  The Magi (priests) numbered upwards of 80,000 and were considered a hierarchy of priests descended from ancient times.

I’m going to skip a lot of history here and nutshell that Parthia was under Greek’s rule during the days of Alexander the Great, but revolted and declared their independence in 256 B.C.  Parthia actually won their independence in 237 B.C. and shortly thereafter eastern Scythians merged into Parthia.

There were a series of famous Parthian kings from the line of Phraates and a long line of battles for territory and sovereignty over the next several decades, which eventually culminated in a series of battles with Rome.  I’m going to go over some of the history of this because it is so very important, and try to stay with me, even if it seems irrelevant.  As I continue, keep in mind that one of the primary roles of the Wise Men and Magi is the anointing, placement and deposing of the kings.

The Parthians suffered loss by the Seleucids in 129 B.C., which is the time of the Maccabees.  This is significant because the Maccabees gained independence in Judea for a short-lived time here.

A curious thing happened in 62 B.C. when Pompey made a promise to Parthia for territories in exchange for support in their war against Armenia.  After the war, Pompey reneged his promise to Parthia and Rome grievously insulted Parthia by not calling the Parthian King Phraates III by his title, “king of kings”.  From that point on, Rome and Parthia were adversaries and the Euphrates River became the recognized border between their empires.  Note that this is about sixty years before Christ’s birth.

Crassus attacked Parthia in 53 B.C. and Rome suffered severe losses.  Parthia retaliated three years later by attacking Rome’s eastern provinces.  A series of battles form 40-37 B.C. caused Parthia to capture Judea and push Rome out of Asia Minor.  Phraates IV captured 35,000 Roman soldiers.  The Jews asserted their independence from Rome in this time and placed a Jewish prince, Antigomus, to rule Palestine as a Parthian satrap.  (They would have been under Parthian rule at this time.)  Note how close we are to Christ’s entrance.

In 37 B.C. Rome counterattacked and regained their territories.  Mark Antony had the Jewish Vassal King Antigomus beheaded and King Herod replaced him.  Now the dots should be connected.  It was in this year, 37 B.C., that Mark Antony (yes, famous with Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt) invaded Parthia with 16 legion and 113,000 man army to try to recover the seven legions of soldiers captured under Crassus.  Parthia dominated this battle.  Rome lost 10,000 men and retreated in winter through Armenia.  Rome recaptured the land west of the Euphrates at this time, and a sort of treaty was reached agreeing to a co-existence on their respective sides of the Euphrates.  Rome had yet to win a significant battle against Parthia and Caesar ordered peace with Parthia at all costs.

I’m not going to join the ranks to declare exactly when Christ was born, as there seems to be credible evidence for a few different dates.  However, we do know Herod the Great was the Roman King at the time of Christ’s birth.  Now see what happens…

Matt 2:1  Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Remember that Wise Men was the proper title of Parthian Megistanes.  The Greek word translated “wise men” is “magian”,  which literally means “Persian astronomer or priest”.  Parthia governed Persia at the time, so the wise men were Parthian nobles &/or priests.

Parthian Megistanes did not travel lightly.  They would have traveled with an entourage of servants, family, animal handlers, etc. under a military company of troops.  Because they were traveling with so much wealth, they would have had an impressive infantry around them.  Josephus and other historians record such caravans into the tens of thousands.  At the very least it would have been a company of a couple thousand, but more likely 20,000 or more.

Matt 2:2 Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”  

The Parthians were Scythians (who were part of the scattered tribes of Israelites).  Therefore the Parthians were Israelites.  The Magi were the priests of Parthia (who were of a hierarchy of priests who descended from ancient times).  The Magi were none other than the Levitical priests!  The Magi were responsible for keeping the line of the kings of Israel.  The Magi (Persian priest) were responsible for following the kingly bloodline.  While their first inclination would be the kingly bloodline in Parthia (the Arsacid dynasty), they would equally be familiar and aware of the bloodline of Judah, as David’s royal bloodline is heir to the throne over all Israel, and is the bloodline the Messiah was prophesied to come.

The bloodline of Judah resided in Judea, while the scattered tribes of Israel were in various places.  Ample research indicates the Scythians/Parthians were predominantly of the tribes of Manasseh and Ephraim*, of whom the priestly tribe of the Levites would be interspersed within.  Their ancient knowledge and traditions would 1) know the prophecies and 2) would know the timing of Daniel’s prophecy and 3) would know how to watch and interpret the signs.

It was no small feat for the multi-thousand ensemble of priests, royalty, military and servants to pack up and travel to Judea!  What would make foreigners even care about someone born in another country??  They wouldn’t!  Unless it mattered to them personally!  And of course the Israelites would care a great deal about fulfilled prophecy and the “King of the Jews”.  They would risk national security to acknowledge the birth of the long-awaited “King”.  They would bring gifts of frankincense (anointing oil), gold (royal treasuries), and myrrh (embalming oil, prophetic) because it would be entirely appropriate and fitting for the Megistanes to anoint and acknowledge the birth of the King.

Matt 2:3  When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

Jerusalem is a trading city that would receive caravans regularly.  Three travelers would not have caused the alarm of the entire city.  But a massive military escort from their enemies under a peace treaty entering their territory inquiring of a King would greatly alarm both Herod and the city.  Recall their peace treaty that neither empire would cross the Euphrates River, and now a military escort in the tens of thousands had entered town.  Thirty years ago the Parthians had crossed the Euphrates and taken back Judea.  To squash the revolution Mark Antony had the Jewish vassal king beheaded.  This would have been in the forefront of Herod and Jerusalem’s thinking.  Surely they were trembling at the fear of war!

The Parthian Megistanes had an immediate audience with King Herod and an inquiry was made.  Herod feigned compliance, but it was probably more because he didn’t have the troops to defend should the Parthians have an aggressive intent.  [He would have less troops because they were under a peace treaty.]

Herod conferred with Jewish hierarchy about their prophecies to ascertain Bethlehem from Micah 5:2.  (Why would Persian priests care about Israeli prophecies??)  The Jews and wise men would have been familiar with Daniel’s prophecy (9:25-26) and known the timing was upon them for the Messiah…

So this Christmas season marvel at the pinnacle of history in the birth of Christ!  It is a story unparalleled in all of time!  The Scriptures should come alive as we envision the Parthian Magi traveling with their tens of thousands to worship the newborn king!  Marvel at the revelation of His Name, (which we now understand is the title of the Parthian kings):

And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.  His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself.  He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.  And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.   From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.  And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” —Revelation 19:11-16 (NASU)

Walking Into Armageddon



Paul Craig Roberts

The orchestrated hostility toward Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea protects the $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex by convincing the American public that the US is threatened by enemies. It also keeps alive Democratic Party hopes that Trump can be removed from office, and it has prevented President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. I have emphasized for some time that Washington’s gratuitous and aggressive actions against Russia and the constant barrage of false accusations against Russia and its government have convinced Russia that Washington is planning a military attack. There is nothing more reckless and irresponsible than to convince a nuclear superpower that you are preparing an attack on them.

One would think that such irresponsible and reckless behavior would have the citizenry aroused and the media reporting the risk. Yet, there is only silence. It is more important to the media whether NFL players stand for the national anthem and that some male politicians show sexual interest in women in inappropriate ways. Insouciant America is walking into Armageddon.

A few days ago former US Secretary of Defense William J. Perry added his voice to mine and to those of the few who understand the danger. Perry said:

“When the Cold War ended, I believed that we no longer had to take that risk [nuclear annihilation] so I put all my energy into efforts to dismantle the deadly nuclear legacy of the Cold War. During my period as the Secretary of Defense in the 90s, I oversaw the dismantlement of 8,000 nuclear weapons evenly divided between the United States and the former Soviet Union. And I thought then that we were well on our way to putting behind us this deadly existential threat, But that was not to be. Today, inexplicably to me, we’re recreating the geopolitical hostility of the Cold War, and we’re rebuilding the nuclear dangers. … We are doing this without any serious public discussion or any real understanding of the consequences of these actions. We are sleepwalking into a new Cold War, and there’s very real danger that we will blunder into a nuclear war. If we are to prevent this catastrophe, the public must understand what is happening.” http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-03/former-us-defense-secretary-explains-why-nuclear-holocaust-now-likely

How can the American public understand when they do not know, because the few voices telling them are not reported? Indeed, the military/security complex, the Israel Lobby and the lobby’s American agents among the neoconservatives are actively working to discredit those who are aware of the dangerous situation.

The power of the military/security complex and the Israel Lobby, the two prime war-mongers of the 21st century, have immobilized the President of the United States. Trump is helpless in the face of a special prosecutor who is “investigating Russiagate,” a hoax created for the express purpose of preventing President Trump from restoring normal relations with a nuclear superpower.

Experts including William Binney, who developed the universal spy program for NSA thinking mistakenly that it would not be used against American citizens, have stated publicly that, if Russiagate were real and not an orchestrated hoax, the NSA would have all the evidence, making special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s “investigation” completely pointless.

One would think that even those who comprise the presstitute media would be able to figure out that NSA has the evidence if it exists. Instead, the presstitutes cooperate with Mueller in creating a fake news story, one that has been kept alive for over a year.

A country in which the media lack integrity cannot be a democracy as the people have no accurate information with which to make decisions and hold government accountable. The American presstitute media functions as a control arm for the powerful vested interests that are turning the United States into a police state that serves only a few hundredths of One Percent.

Americans have been lied to about everything. I agree that the lies go back a long way. To keep this column to a readable length, we can start with the many lies of the Clinton regime. The war on Serbia was done in order to humiliate Russia by proving that Russia was helpless in the face of American might to come to the aid of its ally, and it was done to establish the use of NATO as an arm of, and cover for, US military aggression.

Then we come to 9/11, the official explanation of which is rejected not only by Osama bin Laden but also by every expert unafraid to open his/her mouth.

Then we have the fake reason for the US invasion of Afghanistan, a disaster for America as it was for the Soviets. A handful of lightly armed Afghans defeated “the world’s only superpower,” just as they defeated the powerful Soviet army.

Then we have the fake charges of Saddam Hussain’s “weapons of mass destruction” hyped to the heavens by the corrupt American presstitutes. This amazing lie, disavowed by the UN weapons inspectors, was used despite the evidence to the contrary to invade Iraq and to destroy a country. This lie was later repudiated by US Secretary of State Colin Powell, who regretted the stain on his reputation caused by the George W. Bush/Dick Chaney regime’s misuse of his credibility before the UN.

Then we have the fake charges against Libya’s Gadaffi that were used to murder Gadaffi, to Hillary’s great delight, and to destroy the most successful country in Africa.

The ISIS mercenaries that Hillary and Obama used to destroy Libya were sent to destroy Syria when Russia and the British Parliament blocked Obama’s plan to send American troops to invade Syria. We have been subjected to years of lies from Washington and the presstitutes that Washington is fighting ISIS, when Washington sent ISIS to Syria to destroy Assad and the Syrian government.

And there is Somalia, another packet of Washington/pressitute lies. And the violation of Pakistan with the bombing of tribal areas falsely claimed to be al-Qaeda or Taliban supporters.

And there is Yemen devastated by Washington’s puppet Saudi Arabia.

And there are the false news reports of “Iranian nukes” and Iranian belligerent actions against Israel.

And “Russia invaded Ukraine” when in fact Washington overthrew with its financed NGOs the democratically elected Ukrainian government.

And now we hear that those who dare to tell the truth to Americans are “Russian agents” and “fake news purveyors.”

When a country’s government and media do nothing but lie 24/7, how can democracy exist. Clearly, it cannot.

Environmentl organizations are reporting that President Trump intends to abolish two national monuments by executive order in order to open protected lands to rape, ravage, and ruin by corporations. The two national monuments are Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante.

If Trump has the power to turn national monuments over to corporate campaign donors, he most certainly can have his Attorney General open an investigation of Hillary Clinton or even indict her on the already known evidence. He can issue a pre-emptive pardon of General Flynn, who is being framed on charges that do not relate to Russian influence in the presidential election. Indeed, he can have the Attorney General investigate or arrest Mueller for sedition and an attempt to overthrow the government of the United States. These charges are far more realistic than the charge Mueller has brought against Flynn.

But what does President Trump do? He twitters, complaining that Gen. Flynns life is being destroyed while “Crooked Hillary Clinton” walks around free. https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/12/no_author/crooked-hillary-walks-free/

Trump is correct, so why doesn’t he do something about it? What Flynn did was to ask the Russians not to over-react to the new sanctions that Obama placed on Russia in an effort to create such bad relations between the US and Russia that Trump woud be unable to normalize them. What Flynn did was entirely appropriate and has nothing to do with the hoax story of Russiagate. The real reason that the military/security complex is after Gen. Flynn is that he is the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and he said on a TV news show that the decision by the Obama regime to send ISIS to overthrow Syria was a “willful decision” that went against his recommendation.

In other words, Flynn let the cat out of the bag that ISIS was not an independently formed organization but a tool of US policy.

The presstitutes, of course, ignored Gen. Flynn’s statement. The only effect of Flynn’s statement was to set him up for retalliation, and that is what Mueller is doing.

What Mueller is doing is so corrupt that he really should be arrested and deported to Egypt.

Private interests and agendas have control over the US government. The people have no control. Washington works by selling legislation to the interest groups in exchange for campaign contributions. The private interests that provide the money that elects politicians’ get the laws that they want. For example, President Trump is giving the environmental despoilers two protected national monuments, but he is powerless to protect himself and has advisors.

The ruling oligarchy is making an example of Trump in order to ensure that no future presidential candidate makes a direct appeal to the people. When Trump said that he was going to govern in the interest of the people by bringing the off-shored jobs home, he attacked the profits of the global corporations, and when he said he was going to normalize relations with Russia, he attacked the power and profit of the military/security complex. He is now paying the price for his rashness.

The larger question is: what price will the American people and the rest of the world pay for the constraints the military/security complex has placed on Trump’s ability to normalize relations with Russia?

This Time of Year



By Anna Von Reitz

After Thanksgiving.  Before Christmas.  The world is in a rush, some of it happy, some of it grim.  At no other time of the year does the chasm between the haves and the have nots become more glaringly apparent or the pain of it so sharp.

This is as true for the members of The Living Law Firm as it is for everyone else.

We now have almost 200 former judges, former Bar Attorneys, paralegals, financial auditors, volunteer CPAs, court administrators, and historical researchers working full time to save America — and it is because of their work that we have been able to develop the knowledge base we have been able to share with all of you.

It’s because of them that we know the Civil War was an illegal commercial mercenary action.  It’s because of them that we were able to track down the Lieber Code and its modern-day versions enshrined in The Hague Conventions. It’s because of them that we have the complete details of the 1863 US bankruptcy, the 1907 bankruptcy of The United States of America, Inc., the 1933 bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc., and the current bankruptcies, too.

These experts have proven that the Territorial United States has been run under Martial Law for 150 years, that the US Army is the one responsible for supervising the Bar Associations (and failing to do so) and so much more that is absolutely crucial if we are to understand the world we are living in and the constant cognitive dissonance between Yankee Doodle and the Land of the Free and the ugly fascist surveillance state and threats from people on our payroll.

It’s also because of these legal eagles and historical researchers that we have been able to develop such a clear understanding of the fraud process that has been used to disinherit us, the meaning of the BIRTH CERTIFICATES and all the issues of genocide, enslavement, and institutionalized crime that are the festering results of the so-called American Civil War.

Thanks to these unsung and largely unknown heroes, you now know how to document and reclaim your names and estates— and ultimately, regain control of the courts and the agencies and the banks.

It’s thanks to these volunteers and many, many more working thousands of unpaid hours that you now have a realistic and reliable —and if I may say so, finally, a simple path forward– and the means to claim the protections owed to you.

You can begin to breathe again.  You no longer have to live in fear of federal tax collectors and attorneys coming after you with charges based on foreign statutory laws.  The worst of it has been exposed.  It is only a matter of time before it is undone entirely.  Good-bye to fraudulent mortgages and loan practices.  Farewell to bogus “titles” being held against your name and assets.

Most of the members of The Living Law Firm are older folk like me, who, one way or another have enough to live on; but, we also have young men and women with families still at home to support, and a few folks who have just plain suffered misfortune this past year— medical problems, accidents and injuries, floods, exploding water heaters, and all the other assortment of “nasty things that can happen to all of us”.

I know that everyone is struggling to a greater or lesser extent, but if you can, please help those who have struggled so long and so hard to help you—-and who have shared the results of their labor and research for free.

We have a basement to back-fill in Portland and a sump pump to install.  We have need of a large capacity home heating stove in the same area.  And fuel for it to buy.  We have a family of four living in a mobile home outside of Jackson Hole and tonight they are huddled together around a kerosene space heater without electricity or water. Emergency efforts are underway.  There is a retirement-age couple in the Midwest living in a cheap, rented hotel room, dependent on us and an $800 a month pension until better things happen for them.

On top of everything else that I have to face and do, I have to try to help and take care of the people and families who make up The Living Law Firm..  I have to try to meet these needs and implore your help to do it, too, because of what these people have already done.

Many of the people who have made the most important discoveries are not well-off.  They aren’t retired.  Many of the members of The Living Law Firm struggle to pay the rent, the phone bill, the fuel bill, the college loan bill—- all of it.  They are living as average people making extraordinary efforts and contributions to us all.

While others have created secret society groups and charged thousands of dollars to share what they have learned, and still more have run scams and charged for cures that don’t work and which get people into trouble—- The Living Law Firm has plodded forward and simply shared the fruits of all their labor for free with everyone and they have continued to advance toward their goal of delivering systemic, permanent relief to everyone.

Think about how far we have come in a year, and where we now stand.

Last year, we weren’t fully aware of all the implications of what went on in the Civil War.  Last year, we didn’t know the full extent of culpability and responsibility that the American military bears in all of this. Last year, we didn’t have a clear, proven, simple paper process to reclaim your name and estate.  And day by day, more pieces of the puzzle are brought forward and clicked in place….. by people who have to struggle to keep the lights on, buy Christmas dinner, and feed their dog.

So, we just ask among all the other needs and appeals that come at this time of year— remember our guys out here in the field. I continue to act as Paymaster for everyone.  My Paypal is avannavon@gmail.com and my snail mail is: Anna Maria Riezinger, c/o Post Office Box 520994, Big Lake, Alaska 99652. And if there is anyone in Portland who has the equipment and who knows how to back-fill a basement……

May all those who read this be blessed, may our long labor of love come to fruition as peace and freedom and plenty for everyone, may all the wonders of creation be alive in our hearts and may the peace of the True and Righteous Lord be with us.

Love you all!

American States and Nations Bank Update



By Anna Von Reitz

I have established the American States and Nations Bank— actually three banks—

(1) a repository bank, (2) a sovereign international bank and (3) a state bank

operated under Article X. These serve different purposes, but overall serve the same

end of securing American assets, expediting trade, and promoting the use of lawful

money—- basically all asset-based currencies.

My concern is that over half the world either currently is or will soon be trading in

currencies backed by precious metals. Only 1% of Americans have any gold, which

leaves them unable to trade with all the countries that are or will be using gold. It

also concerns me that the abuse of legal tender may lead to problems that leave

Mom and Pop and the Kids back home unable to purchase simple things at the

grocery store.


I have recommended (not because I am a “Gold Bug” but because I am practical)

that everyone invest in at least a small amount of gold and silver sufficient to pay for

basic needs for 1-6 months, or however much people can set aside. And although

Karatbars is relatively expensive on a per piece basis because of the cost of

packaging small amounts of gold, assaying it, etc., I have recommended it as a good

idea because frankly, if things go South, the price of gold will rise astronomically.

That could lead to a situation where a one ounce gold coin could be valued at $5000

or more.


Anyone who has had trouble cashing a $100 bill at a store can appreciate the

problem. Can you imagine the cashiers biting the coin to make sure it is real gold, as

they used to do back in the days of the Gold Rush?— before they will sell you a loaf

of bread and a gallon of milk? Or having the store manager tell you, I am sorry, but

we can’t “break” your $5000 gold coin into some other form of currency?


Crazy making and scary as this proposition is, it is what it is, and Americans have

been told that it is coming for a long time. Silver is also our saving grace and our

traditional lawful money and I advocate everyone getting some silver set aside, too

 More Questions and Answers About American States and Nations Bank


by David Robinson

By Judge Anna von Reitz

I set up the Articles of Organization for the American States and Nations Bank and helped establish its first business office here in Alaska.  I also function as its first Comptroller, a responsibility I will not relinquish until I am sure that the endeavor is properly safeguarded, organized, and in good and honest hands going forward.

These very simple statements— Articles of Organization— condense the nature, purpose, and fundamental organizational structure and accountability of managers within the bank.

There is, of course, a great deal of work and security development behind all of it that is not immediately apparent, but becomes so upon reflection.  Each of the principal managers, including the Comptroller, have multiple functions at the start that are too complex, ephemeral, and varied to describe in the Articles as any part of the permanent position within the organization.

I want to stress the fact that the American States and Nations Bank is an International Organization, not an incorporated entity or franchise of any kind; it is organized under Article X of the original and actual Constitution for these United States (land jurisdiction) as part of the reserved powers of the American People and their organic states.  It is a “sovereign bank”.

It is necessary for us to act as an International Organization because each one of the Several States are also separate Sovereign Nations, thus all trade between the organic Nations is in fact “international” in nature.

Think of it this way—- both “States” and “Nations” are political entities.  “States” operate primarily in the international jurisdiction of the sea through incorporated entities such as the “State of California”.  Nations operate their affairs on the land jurisdiction through unincorporated international organizations, for example, the Alaska State or the Wyoming State, both of which can more exactly be termed the Alaska Nation and the Wyoming Nation.

The confusion arises from calling nations “states” and only differentiating among them by slight differences in name:  Alaska State = Nation on the Land,  State of Alaska = Incorporated Legal Fiction.

In the same way, international banks operate in the international jurisdiction of the sea as incorporated entities, and they operate entirely in the realm of commerce. Commerce is business carried on between CORPORATIONS  including “State of” corporations.  Thus, you, a living man named something like “George Michael Finkelstein”  have a “person” named after you, “GEORGE MICHAEL FINKELSTEIN”  which allows you to do business as YOU— a corporation. You simply haven’t been made privy to this cozy arrangement benefiting the banks and “governmental services corporations” that have enfranchised “YOU” as a franchise like a Dairy Queen franchise and used “YOU” for their benefit and forced “YOU” to operate in the realm of international commerce whether you— the living man—knew it or not.   The Alaska State has similarly suffered the predations of the State of Alaska and the STATE OF ALASKA.

There is, however, the option to form an international bank that functions as an unincorporated international organization (as opposed to a corporation) operating on the land jurisdiction, and which operates entirely in the realm of trade.  Trade is business carried on between people and their Nation States, like the Alaska State and the Florida State. This is what the American States and Nations Bank is.  If you are a living man or woman, you will want and need to trade with a bank organized as we are organized.  If your organization — Jural Assembly — Township, County, or State Organization represents living people and actual soil, you will want to have an account with American States and Nations Bank.

The advantage of such a bank is that it deals with you as one of the people instead of treating you as a corporate franchisee.  It can guarantee your privacy and the security of your funds in ways that no incorporated franchise can. It is also accountable for its actions and subject to the actual Public Law— “bail ins” and “bail outs” and other such criminal nonsense are not possible when you bank with a sovereign, private bank.  It also deals in lawful money, which means that you have an option and a place to go where you can exchange actual assets, issue lawful notes and create lawful securities.

As with all things, greater freedom requires greater self-responsibility and greater integrity.  The American States and Nations Bank has to function under complete commercial liability.  That means that we have to stand behind what we do and put our own — not just the bank’s assets — at risk.  There is no corporate veil.  We can insure depositor’s assets via private insurance provisions and we can bond certain aspects of our operations, but there is no FDIC here just as there is no obligation to kow-tow to the demands of any corporate bosses.

If you are familiar with and accept the practices and risks of the commercial banks, or you honestly and knowledgeably accept “enfranchisement”, and all the presumptions of “United States Citizenship” which that entails, American States and Nations Bank may not be the answer for you, but for millions of American State Nationals who need and want their birthright political status honored and who are tired of the monopolistic abuses and corrupt practices of both the Federal Reserve and IMF, it’s time to come home.



nine nypd cops visited teen in hospital


Teen Suing Two Cops for Rape Gets Hospital Visit From Nine Others on Force

The two NYPD officers admitted they had sex with the young woman in their custody but claim it was consensual.

While 18-year-old Anna Chambers was seeking treatment for sexual assault, nine New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers stopped by the Brooklyn medical center where her mom had driven her after the alleged attack.

By Elizabeth Nolan Brown|

It was hardly a friendly visit, according to Chambers’ lawyers. The two men Chambers was accusing of rape were narcotics officers Richard Hall and Eddie Martins, the Coney Island cops who had pulled over her friends and her earlier in the evening. The officers allegedly forced a handcuffed Chambers to have oral sex with them in the back of their unmarked police van after finding a friends’ prescription drugs in her bag.

Their NYPD colleagues came to the Maimonides Medical Center later that night in September in an attempt to bully her into silence, according to Chambers.

“They came with nine cops to intimidate her and her mom, to discourage them from coming forward and reporting the rape and sex assault,” attorney Michael David, who is representing Chambers, told the New York Post last week.

One officer allegedly “kept saying to Anna and her mom, ‘How do you know they were real cops?'” and told them, “‘you don’t know what you’re talking about. Your daughter doesn’t know what she’s talking about.'”

A medical exam and rape kit given at the hospital found DNA on Chambers that matched officers Hall and Martins.

The two NYPD officers later admitted to having sex with Chambers in their police van after pulling her over and taking her into custody, but they claimed that (somehow) this sex was consensual.

Both resigned from the police force but pleaded not guilty to a 50-count criminal indictment and are free on bail.

They are also facing a $50 million civil lawsuit filed by Chambers against them and the city. Chambers’ lawyer said they intend to add the lead officer who spoke with her at the hospital to the claim.
