“Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves.” ― Herbert Marcuse

The FBI is worried: foreign hackers have broken into two state election databases.

The Department of Homeland Security is worried: the nation’s voting system needs greater protection against cyberattacks.

I, on the other hand, am not overly worried: after all, the voting booths have already been hacked by a political elite comprised of Republicans and Democrats who are determined to retain power at all costs.

The outcome is a foregone conclusion: the police state will win and “we the people” will lose.

The damage has already been done.

The DHS, which has offered to help “secure” the nation’s elections, has already helped to lock down the nation.

Remember, the DHS is the agency that ushered in the domestic use of surveillance drones, expanded the reach of fusion centers, stockpiled an alarming amount of ammunition, urged Americans to become snitches through a “see something, say something” campaign, oversaw the fumbling antics of TSA agents everywhere, militarized the nation’s police, spied on activists and veterans, distributed license plate readers and cell phone trackers to law enforcement agencies, contracted to build detention camps, carried out military drills and lockdowns in American cities, conducted virtual strip searches of airline passengers, established Constitution-free border zones, funded city-wide surveillance cameras, and generally turned our republic into a police state.

So, no, I’m not falling for the government’s scare tactics about Russian hackers.

I’m not losing a night’s sleep over the thought that this election might by any more rigged than it already is.

And I’m not holding my breath in the hopes that the winner of this year’s particular popularity contest will save us from government surveillance, weaponized drones, militarized police, endless wars, SWAT team raids, red light cameras, asset forfeiture schemes, overcriminalization, profit-driven private prisons, graft and corruption, or any of the other evils that masquerade as official government business these days.

What I’ve come to realize is that Americans want to engage in the reassurance ritual of voting.

They want to believe that politics matter.

They want to be persuaded that there’s a difference between the Republicans and Democrats (there’s not).

They will swear that Barack Obama has been an improvement on George W. Bush (he has not).

They are convinced that Hillary Clinton’s values are different from Donald Trump’s (with both of them, money talks).

Most of all, they want to buy into the fantasy that when we elect a president, we’re getting someone who truly represents “we the people” rather than the corporate state (in fact, in the oligarchy that is the American police state, an elite group of wealthy donors is calling the shots).

The sad truth is that it doesn’t matter who wins the White House, because they all work for the same boss: Corporate America. Understanding this, many corporations hedge their bets on who will win the White House by splitting their donations between Democratic and Republican candidates.

Politics is a game, a joke, a hustle, a con, a distraction, a spectacle, a sport, and for many devout Americans, a religion. It is a political illusion aimed at persuading the citizenry that we are free, that our vote counts, and that we actually have some control over the government when in fact, we are prisoners of a police state.

In other words, it’s a sophisticated ruse aimed at keeping us divided and fighting over two parties whose priorities are exactly the same so that we don’t join forces and do what the Declaration of Independence suggests, which is to throw the whole lot out and start over.

It’s no secret that both parties support endless war, engage in out-of-control spending, ignore the citizenry’s basic rights, have no respect for the rule of law, are bought and paid for by Big Business, care most about their own power, and have a long record of expanding government and shrinking liberty. Most of all, both parties enjoy an intimate, incestuous history with each other and with the moneyed elite that rule this country.

Despite the jabs the candidates volley at each other for the benefit of the cameras, they’re a relatively chummy bunch away from the spotlight. Moreover, despite Congress’ so-called political gridlock, our elected officials seem to have no trouble finding common ground when it’s time to collectively kowtow to the megacorporations, lobbyists, defense contractors and other special interest groups to whom they have pledged their true allegiance.

So don’t be fooled by the smear campaigns and name-calling or drawn into their politics of hate. They’re just useful tactics that have been proven to engage voters and increase voter turnout while keeping the citizenry at each other’s throats.

We’re in trouble, folks.

We are living in a fantasy world carefully crafted to resemble a representative democracy.

It used to be that the cogs, wheels and gear shifts in our government machinery worked to keep our republic running smoothly. However, without our fully realizing it, the mechanism has changed. Its purpose is no longer to keep our republic running smoothly. To the contrary, this particular contraption’s purpose is to keep the corporate police state in power. Its various parts are already a corrupt part of the whole.

Just consider how insidious, incestuous and beholden to the corporate elite the various “parts” of the mechanism have become.

Congress. Perhaps the most notorious offenders and most obvious culprits in the creation of the corporate-state, Congress has proven itself to be both inept and avaricious, oblivious champions of an authoritarian system that is systematically dismantling their constituents’ fundamental rights. Long before they’re elected, Congressmen are trained to dance to the tune of their wealthy benefactors, so much so that they spend two-thirds of their time in office raising money. As Reuters reports, “For many lawmakers, the daily routine in Washington involves fundraising as much as legislating. The culture of nonstop political campaigning shapes the rhythms of daily life in Congress, as well as the landscape around the Capitol. It also means that lawmakers often spend more time listening to the concerns of the wealthy than anyone else.”

The President. What Americans want in a president and what they need are two very different things. The making of a popular president is an exercise in branding, marketing and creating alternate realities for the consumer—a.k.a., the citizenry—that allows them to buy into a fantasy about life in America that is utterly divorced from our increasingly grim reality. Take President Obama, for instance, who now enjoys greater popularity than any previous president, including the beloved Ronald Reagan. This is a president who got elected by campaigning against war, torture, surveillance only to make them hallmarks of his presidency, and yet somehow these “indiscretions” are overlooked and forgiven as long as he presents a jocular, hip façade: slow-jamming the news with Jimmy Fallon, reading mean tweets with Jimmy Kimmel, singing, dancing and being cool. In other words, to be a successful president, it doesn’t matter whether you keep your campaign promises, sell access to the Lincoln Bedroom, or march in lockstep with the Corporate State as long as you keep the feel-good vibes flowing.

The Supreme Court. The U.S. Supreme Court—once the last refuge of justice, the one governmental body really capable of rolling back the slowly emerging tyranny enveloping America—has instead become the champion of the American police state, absolving government and corporate officials of their crimes while relentlessly punishing the average American for exercising his or her rights. Like the rest of the government, the Court has routinely prioritized profit, security, and convenience over the basic rights of the citizenry. Indeed, law professor Erwin Chemerinsky makes a compelling case that the Supreme Court, whose “justices have overwhelmingly come from positions of privilege,” almost unerringly throughout its history sides with the wealthy, the privileged, and the powerful.

The Media. Of course, this triumvirate of total control would be completely ineffective without a propaganda machine provided by the world’s largest corporations. Besides shoveling drivel down our throats at every possible moment, the so-called news agencies which are supposed to act as bulwarks against government propaganda have instead become the mouthpieces of the state. The pundits which pollute our airwaves are at best court jesters and at worst propagandists for the false reality created by the American government. When you have internet and media giants such as Google, NBC Universal, News Corporation, Turner Broadcasting, Thomson Reuters, Comcast, Time Warner, Viacom, Public Radio International and The Washington Post Company donating to the Clinton Foundation, you no longer have an independent media—what we used to refer to as the “fourth estate”—that can be trusted to hold the government accountable.

The American People. “We the people” now belong to a permanent underclass in America. It doesn’t matter what you call us—chattel, slaves, worker bees, drones, it’s all the same—what matters is that we are expected to march in lockstep with and submit to the will of the state in all matters, public and private. Through our complicity in matters large and small, we have allowed an out-of-control corporate-state apparatus to take over every element of American society.

We’re playing against a stacked deck.

The game is rigged, and “we the people” keep getting dealt the same losing hand. The people dealing the cards—the politicians, the corporations, the judges, the prosecutors, the police, the bureaucrats, the military, the media, etc.—have only one prevailing concern, and that is to maintain their power and control over the citizenry, while milking us of our money and possessions.

It really doesn’t matter what you call them—Republicans, Democrats, the 1%, the elite, the controllers, the masterminds, the shadow government, the police state, the surveillance state, the military industrial complex—so long as you understand that while they are dealing the cards, the deck will always be stacked in their favor.

As I make clear in my book, Battlefield America: The War on the American People, our failure to remain informed about what is taking place in our government, to know and exercise our rights, to vocally protest, to demand accountability on the part of our government representatives, and at a minimum to care about the plight of our fellow Americans has been our downfall.

Now we find ourselves once again caught up in the spectacle of another presidential election, and once again the majority of Americans are acting as if this election will make a difference and bring about change. As if the new boss will be different from the old boss.

When in doubt, just remember what the astute commentator George Carlin had to say about the matter:

The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.

They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork…. It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club. …The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice…. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on…. It’s called the American Dream, ’cause you have to be asleep to believe it.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

What a shame, what a damn waste of intellect and public appeal. I have contacted one of his family and begged her to inform John there is another alternative to pissing in the wind and I have no doubt he knows it. He is way to smart to fall for this government services corporation bull shit. Just think what he could accomplish teamed up with Anna Von Reitz and the Living Law Firm.

I hate to say it but money must be his reason for continuing to ignore the only hope American’s have. I’m not the only one who has noticed he does not publish anything without plugging his books. John, you are killing me! And abandoning your country. You could easily team up with them using a ghost name. I will even be your communication go between for free!

From the desk of Anna Von Reitz

Many people have asked me what our Living Law Firm has done or is doing for the Bundys and others involved in the Oregon Wildlife Refuge Stand-Off.

Even I have wasted time and money writing letters and making phone calls and posting on Facebook to no avail—- and just like Thomas Deegan in West Virginia, you can’t help Stubborn and Wrong.

Just recently I have had word that one of the Bundys might be starting to listen, but only because they have run out of money to pay “real” attorneys.

Sigh.

The Bundys are being prosecuted under the false presumption that they are “United States Citizens” or “citizens of the United States” when they are not.

United States Citizens have never been protected by the guarantees of The Constitution, so, as long as you agree that you are a United States Citizen— guess what?  There’s no use arguing any “constitutional” defenses.  And there is no use arguing that they are being wrongfully prosecuted, because as “United States Citizens” they are subject to every little jot of Federal Code and Statute. That includes “federated” State Statutes, too.

Now, have you ever seen a snake try to eat something grossly much bigger than itself so that the intended food gets stuck on its fangs?  Unless some kind soul comes along and unlocks its jaws, the snake will thrash around and starve to death.

What should happen is that the Bundys and their friends should go into court and say, “Your Honor, there’s been a mistake here, and we made it.  We were misinformed about several things.  We were told that we had to sign up for Social Security, that it was mandated for us by our government—- and that turns out not to be the case.  We were told we had to have Driver Licenses, too, and that turns out not to be true, either.  We aren’t United States Citizens. We are United States Nationals so far as international affairs are concerned, and here at home we are what you call American State Nationals.  We are sorry about the confusion.

Here’s the Social Security Cards we were given and the Driver Licenses, too.  And here’s the Birth Certificate our parents were given as the insurance indemnity receipt guaranteeing the well-being and safety of our “cargo”. We were never told what it was until very recently. We thought it was just a record of us being born.”

All that should take about 30 seconds, cost virtually nothing, and requires only three documents.

“Now, your Honor, this has all been a big mistake— a case of mistaken identity. We must be set free and our losses made whole.”

Remember that old snake trying to eat the world?  That’s the look on the judge’s face right about now.  He and his cohorts have knowingly prosecuted their employers under false presumptions.  Their court and the corporation they are working for are on the stick for it.

Unless they want to commit war crimes in open court—- crimes that carry the death penalty— they truly do need to do a double flip spin in the air, 180 degree flip-flop in front of God and the whole world— and release the Bundys and their friends and return all their losses, plus damages.

The Bundys and their friends actually are the Landlords who are owed the Wildlife Refuge and every other particle of land in the western states.  The Federales are just employees, working under contract as property managers.

But as long as you put up with this crappola and let the Feds pretend that you are one of them and subject to their rules, you look like a small and tasty bite.

Let’s take this a little bit farther—

What if there was a man in your community who was known to be a murderer, a bully, and a thief?   What if he was also so slick, so cunning, and so adept at pressuring people and buying them off and threatening them, that no matter what he does—- even murder in broad daylight— like Waco and Ruby Ridge he continues to get away with it?

Okay, what if it isn’t a man?  What if it is an organized crime syndicate, set up like the mafia, operating as a corporation?  And what if that corporation is operating under color of law, pretending to be part of your legitimate government simply because they have a contract to provide “governmental services”?

Hmmm?

That’s what we’ve got here.  That’s what we are dealing with.

The private, for-profit corporation literally calling itself the “GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES”  —- this is no joke—-is listed on Dunn and Bradstreet. And under “GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES” you find numerous subsidiaries including the “BLM” and the “FBI”.

“NORTHERN TRUST” is listed as the owner/operator of the “IRS” and the “AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION”.

Now, you can go up against these groups of criminals with fists and pitchforks, or you can object to their criminality and liquidate them—-expose them for what they are and how they are operating, bring charges against them, and “pull their charters”.  Suddenly, they have no funding, no way to pay for their mercenaries, and no way to harm anyone, unless their shadowy bosses have grit enough to go one on one with Clive Bundy.

And I really don’t think they do.  That’s why they are hiding behind legal pretenses and false fronts in the first place. That’s why they are so scared of guns.

So what I am very broadly suggesting—-again—-to everyone concerned, is to take a bit of advice from George V, the British Monarch primarily responsible for this latest round of thuggery on our soil—–don’t get mad.  Keep calm and get even.

If any of my readers have direct contacts with the Bundy Clan, or Thomas Deegan, or Schaeffer Cox   or  others facing federal prosecution, please forward this blurb to their attention.

It’s a very simple, direct, and effective solution.  It costs virtually nothing.  It’s peaceful.  Almost effortless.  What more could you ask for?

And what do you have to lose?

If I am right, you get your freedom— freedom like you have never had before; you get your losses repaired, plus damages, which after what you’ve gone through would be very nice, indeed.

If I am wrong, well, there will be some British Subjects set up for the gallows of the new Nuremburg Tribunal, and you can hardly be worse off than you already are.

If you have already been tried and convicted “by mistake” submit the paperwork for a mis-trial hearing based on new information and challenge the court’s jurisdiction.

Please note that this will not work for people who legitimately are United States Citizens or “citizens of the United States”—– which includes federal civilian and military employees, African Americans, federal welfare recipients (Retirees— remember you are retired and those aren’t Social Security “Benefits” you are receiving if you paid in and were vested in the Social Security System.) or political asylum seekers or if you are knowingly and willingly operating a federal franchise corporation.

The Emerging Mark of the Beast System

08/29/2016

“Sleepwalking into the Surveillance Society”

Modern technology has created a brave new electronic and borderless world. Surveillance and biometric capturing technologies have advanced significantly in recent years. ID programs have modernised with the likes of ID smartcards linked to huge databases enabling fast and secure electronic authentication among other surveillance functions.

Advances in digital technologies have made it possible now to construct an identification system capable of monitoring just about every human transaction. The surveillance society is no longer a future probability but a very present reality.

As Martin Hirst, Associate Professor at Deakin University observes: “…we are clearly living in a well-established surveillance society.”1 This surveillance society has at least several disturbing implications as Hirst proceeds to explain:

Everything you do is subject to surveillance… We are under constant watch, both physically and electronically. Surveillance is the new normal. It’s everywhere and this ubiquity makes us take it for granted.2

That ubiquitous surveillance has achieved an almost imperceptible presence in our lives is captured in remarks by Julian Assange in an interview with Global:

The web accelerated the network’s proliferation into every aspect of modern daily life in advanced societies. The speed of that transformation has left global society unaware of the political and societal implications of using a one-world network as the central nervous system of humanity. Foremost among those implications was the globalisation and totalisation of surveillance.3

Indeed it’s a profound transformation unfolding as advanced surveillance technologies become smaller, faster and far more powerful and effective. But more, it reveals an eerie dimension to modern surveillance in that while it has become pervasive, it is also now largely invisible. Accordingly, the erosion of freedoms and privacy, and the impacts on social inclusion and exclusion go almost unquestioned. We’ve become preoccupied with the need for high-tech solutions to everything, whether it’s ensuring robust security and safety or prevention of identity fraud and crime.

Few surveillance instruments are as effective for monitoring the movements of individuals as smart ID cards, particularly when empowered by modern technology and infrastructure. The Secretary General of Interpol and the EDAPS Consortium clearly know this when in an intriguing announcement in 2011, called for development of an electronic “Globally Verifiable Identity Card.” The card was envisaged to be embedded with a contactless microchip and integrated biometric technologies providing “automation of border and migration control at all levels” and verifiable “through national and international databases.”4

Taking the globally verifiable identification card to a new level is this curious proposal by science fiction writer Elizabeth Moon, who told BBC in 2012 that to change the world everyone should be issued a unique ID barcode or implantable chip:

… I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached – a barcode if you will; an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast inexpensive way to identify individuals…5

Moving forward to 2014, is this chorus of calls for ubiquitous surveillance, global ID systems and universal human chip implants merely the paranoid fantasies of spirited imaginations?

Renewed calls for the beefing up of the world’s surveillance systems appear to come on the heels of nearly every major breach of security. Malaysia’s missing airliner MH370 on 8 March 2014 is a good case in point. Given the frustration with the search for the missing aircraft, China announced at the end of March a curious plan involving “massively increasing its network of surveillance and observation satellites so it can monitor the entire planet.”6

Audacious proposals for high-tech surveillance should give anyone pause for concern. However, it seldom does. As a UK public discussion report notes, the surveillance society is widely “seen as the stuff of science fiction, not everyday life.”7

‘Receive a Mark in Their Right Hand or in Their Foreheads…’

It may seem like the stuff of science fiction but a world in transformation driven by the technology of the age also signals a biblical prediction coming into view. Referring to a mark embedded at the right hand or forehead of every individual, we turn to consider a fascinating verse from the New Testament that describes a centralised world financial order.

Revelation 13:16-17 reads:

He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (King James Version)

These verses come from the book of Revelation written in the latter part of the first century CE. The author is traditionally known as John, the book’s original Greek title is ‘Apocalypse’ which means a prophetic disclosure or ‘Revelation’ from where the latter title of the book originated.

While the ‘mark’ has been a topic of debate for many years, its concept remains to be seen. Will the mark be a symbolic representation or a functioning hardware device? Will it be a visible inscription or concealed subcutaneous implant? Could it be a hybrid of any of these? Current technologies and techniques already have potential to meet any one or more of these adaptations with variations of scannable tattoos, implantable chips and a growing range of innovative wearable devices.

Looking at the passage more broadly, scholars of eschatology generally interpret the verses with view of a world dictator (“He”) who exercises global authority and control (“causes all to receive”) using a specialised instrument (“a mark”) to enforce a draconian compliance policy (“that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark”).

A crucially important detail in this passage is the mark embedded at the right hand or forehead, suggesting an indispensable device in a newly established opt-in economy in order to buy and sell, with profound implications for surveillance and control. Surveillance of one’s consumer activities was until recent times a cumbersome process, but with the explosion of a new generation of cashless payment technologies, that has all radically changed.

Indeed, the shopper of today who prefers cashless methods of payment already leaves a trail of digital records that can be tracked and monitored with ease through their daily online and offline shopping activities. The reason for raising an alarm here is that we can already demonstrate the technical capacity to engineer a completely cashless and paperless economy, outfitted with a centralised global digital currency and embeddable device to replace all existing methods of payment. There would be no means or avenue of escape from this horrendous tightly controlled surveillance complex.

This seems to be the economic model that the passage is describing, and the narrative this analysis will explore, as we look at a few samples among many emerging innovations and developments to affirm that this is the direction the world is heading. It is also important to consider what these technologies and innovations portend with regard to their possible precursor to the mark, and how they may be familiarising users to be more receptive of an embedded bodily device through exposure and usage.

RFID Technology & Chip Implants

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips have been the object of a great deal of sensationalist commentary over the years.

So what are RFID chips? RFID chips are basically an automatic data capture technology that contains unique identification codes that are readable at varying distances with special reader devices. The tiny size of the chips, about that of a small grain of rice, and their widening deployment over the years, has generated broad publicised concerns about potential privacy invasion.

These fears are not unfounded. It’s already a mandatory requirement in six states of Australia8 and other parts of the world that domestic animals be implanted with a microchip containing identity data linked to a microchip registry. What starts out voluntary often becomes mandatory.

While deployment of human chip implants in the mainstream has not materialised, it has in no way dampened the spectre of what could be.

As Time magazine opined back in 1998:

Your daughter can store the money any way she wants – on her laptop, on a debit card, even (in the not too distant future) on a chip implanted under her skin.9

Similarly, CNET News 2003, where we read about MasterCard testing RFID technology for the PayPass credit card to be fitted with a chip, states:

It could be in a pen or a pair of earrings. Ultimately, it could be embedded in anything – someday, maybe even under the skin.10

A more recent article on BBC sought to inform readers that “it’s the same exact technology as the card in your wallet” to allay fears of “surveillance and totalitarian control” toward microchip implants. Unlike cards that can be lost or stolen, “you’ll never lose the chip,” assured the advocate of the technology. In remarks that read like a glowing endorsement of microchip implant techniques:

An implanted chip, by contrast, could act as our universal identity token for navigating the machine-regulated world. Yet to work, such a chip would need to be truly universal and account for potential obsolescence…. It marks the beginnings of a slow move toward a world where everything will be accessed from a single RFID microchip. If that day comes, I can’t think of a safer place to keep it than inside my own body.11

Promoting mainstream use of human chip implants through the health care industry was a curious television commercial for VeriChip Corp in 2008. Featuring a sequence of patients holding forth a tiny microchip, the ad wastes no time enticing audiences with these apparent assurances:

To think something so small can connect you to everything that matters. When your life and all you love are on the line, Health Link is always with you. When every second counts in the emergency room, providing immediate access to your medical records….12

Cybernetics scientist Dr. Mark Gasson of the University of Reading in Britain foresees human chip implants becoming one of life’s necessities in the near future, according to citations in the Sydney Morning Herald in April 2014:

It’s not possible to interact in society today in any meaningful way, without having a mobile phone. I think human implants will go along a similar route. It will be such a disadvantage not to have the implant that it will essentially not be optional.13

Are these remarks the creative plot for a sci-fi thriller or do they foreshadow biblical mark realities?

By contrast, it was fears of RFID chip implants “becoming widespread in humans” that prompt this warning in the same Sydney Morning Herald article, citing Dr. Katina Michael, an associate professor at the University of Wollongong:

They point to an uber-surveillance society that is big brother on the inside looking out. Governments or large corporations would have the ability to track people’s actions and movements, categorise them into different socio-economic, political, racial, religious or consumer groups and ultimately even control them.14

The spectre of human microchip implants looms.

Smart Chips & Contactless Payments

Contactless payment processes have opened a new chapter in fast, convenient and cost effective methods of payment. Many readers of New Dawn would be familiar with the contactless payment services available in many retail stores.

MasterCard® PayPass™ and Visa payWave are two established contactless payment services on offer throughout Australia. These services provide contactless payment point-of-sale readers that utilise sophisticated smart chip technology to enable users to make payments with little more than a simple wave of a card. No swiping or inserting the card at the terminal, nor a PIN or signature required for purchases under $100.00.

Unlike the standard RFID chip, the smart chips in cards contain an antenna loop embedded in the plastic. The far more sophisticated modern chip and their variations still use radio frequency technologies but incorporate a microprocessor and internal memory for read/write and secure data storage and management. Contactless smartcards exchange information with payment terminals using short-range wireless communications and conform to the international standard ISO/IEC 14443 that limits the ability to read and write to the contactless device at a distance less than 10 centimetres.

The significance of these developments cannot be overstated considering the rapid deployment of converging contactless payments and chip card enabled payment innovations in recent years. It could be said that there’s little experiential difference between making a contactless payment with a wave of a card and a contactless payment with a wave of the right hand. If exposure and repetitive use breeds familiarity, then user sensitivities toward an embedded device-enabled payment paradigm are certainly being numbed.

Could scannable tattoos become what is the mark that enables those who receive it to buy and sell?

QR codes are two-dimensional machine-readable graphics which consist of a matrix of black modules arranged in a square on a white background. QR Codes are similar to standard barcodes except QR Codes can contain much more information than traditional barcodes.

QR Codes link the physical with the digital world. They are often displayed on brochures, business cards, posters, clothing and other print advertising. When scanned by a smartphone or device, the QR Code directs the user to a website, phone number or other information.

Incidentally, QR codes also enable payments by linking the user’s bank account or credit card information to their unique QR Code. Depending on the app, users can either pay by scanning a QR code, displayed on a bill for example, with their smartphone or merchants can accept a mobile payment by scanning a customer’s unique QR Code on their smartphone.15

While QR codes have been around since the 1990s, it’s only with recent technology we see their extraordinary versatility with enabling a variety of mobile payment methods.16 There’s also been a strange twist to this technology with claims of scannable QR Code tattoos.17 It may be a futuristic and bizarre claim to make that one day such tattoos could enable payments much like the passage describes the mark, but it just goes to show the technology and technical capability is here.

Wearables, Smartphones & Mobile Devices

Software applications and near field communications (NFC) among other innovations are rapidly transforming payment processing ecosystems, creating a new era of convenient and fast payment services, with converting phones and other mobile devices into full digital wallets.

It’s claimed the new digital wallet will soon eliminate any need to carry cash and cards, allowing users to link their debit and credit cards to conduct financial transactions all at the press of a few buttons on a device.18 Once the user has established an account, users can ‘tap’ their phone to pay for shopping at the checkout or pay a friend by transferring money from mobile to mobile.

Enterprising Australian banks and financial service organisations are pressing onward with trials and roll outs of their infrastructure across the country.19 Trials are even being conducted on a payment microchip embedded in the sleeve of suits at the cuff for easy and convenient payments.20 There’s also digital payment bracelets, wristwatches and other wearable payment devices now commercially available.21

It seems the acceleration toward a cashless society is becoming like one of an amusement arcade amid the range of novel payment devices coming onto the market. These innovative payment devices are yet another novelty enticing customers toward fully traceable and trackable digital transactions, indeed cultivating user familiarity with a variety of cashless and contactless methods of payment.

Biometric Enabled Payment Devices

Biometric payment innovations add yet another range of options for the customer to pay, with biometric scanning devices enabling methods of payment typically with finger, hand or face. A familiar range of benefits are advanced including simplicity, speed, convenience and security of payment.

PayTouch22 and MyTouch23 are two services that allow users to link their payment cards to their fingerprint for method of payment.

PayPal, a global payment company, has partnered with Samsung to launch a biometric fingerprint authentication payment option enabled by the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance ready software. The collaboration allows Samsung Galaxy S5 users to be able to login and shop at any merchant that accepts PayPal on mobile with their fingerprint.24

If there exist any payment technique that could be said to simulate conducting payments with an embedded mark at the right hand or forehead, that would surely belong to emerging hand and face biometric methods of payment.

Biyo is touted as a revolutionary biometric digital wallet that allows users to pay with their hand by scanning the unique vein patterns in the palm to create a secure password. The point-of-sale system requires users to register their palm and link it to a credit card of choice. Once registered, the user can make payments simply with their hand at any store where the Biyo terminal is available.25

It’s trumpeted as the world’s first face recognition payment system and comes from a Finnish start-up company called Uniqul. Uniqul are developing real-time facial recognition payment technology to replace cash, cards and phones and aspire to “revolutionise the world of payments with new paradigms to create amazing payment experiences for users.”26

There is little presence of biometric payments in Australia, however in a recent move toward this initiative, digital banking tech provider The Systems Work Group have taken on eye-print recognition technology for authenticating mobile banking app users.27

Accelerating Social & Economic Transformation

Africa and India offer compelling evidence of the radical transformative impacts of cashless technologies on societies and economies.

The African experience is an amazing transformation, a continent exhibiting by far the fastest growth in mobile money economics in the world amid deep and broad social disadvantage. Mobile money enables users through payment schemes such as SnapScan and M-Pesa to make a variety of financial transactions with just their phone, even where conventional payment infrastructure is unavailable.28

An extraordinary feature of Africa’s mobile money implementation is that they have leapfrogged over vital infrastructure otherwise necessary for consumers to engage a modern economy:

The lack of financial and technology infrastructure could have been perceived as a massive barrier, but instead Africa has managed to leapfrog over a world of credit cards, ATMs, bank managers and branches.29

Evidently the absence or lack of infrastructure is accelerating the transition to a viable cashless society in this instance.

A similar technological marvel is unfolding in India with the ambitious rollout of a 12-digit unique ID number known as an Aadhaar to all 1.2 billion residents across the country.30

The Aadhaar number is stored in a centralised database and links to the basic demographics and biometric information of each individual. It is the largest biometric database in the world. The mission is to empower all residents of the country with a unique identity and a digital platform to authenticate anytime and anywhere.

The program enables millions of rural and poor people through financial inclusion to participate in the modern cashless economy.31 Of important note here is the aim of the ID, as with all sophisticated ID schemes around the world: To create a detailed digital record of everywhere the ID holder goes.

It’s a fascinating spectacle of technological revolution and accelerating social and economic transformation on a scale seldom if ever seen. Interestingly, when we compare the systems of the mark and Aadhaar, we note a similar layout where both models utilise a unique ID mechanism to enable access to the financial system of the day. To restate in part:

He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark….  and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark.

En Route to the Global System of the Mark

Global citizenship and mobility, international trade, global financial markets and high speed technologies have connected individuals and communities beyond our national borders. Increasingly we’re all part of a connected globalised economy in an era of normalising the digital way of life.

It would have taken some penetrating foresight in decades past to have envisioned the role technology would play today with enabling almost the entire world’s population access to an advancing modern economy, including the world’s poor: “He causes all… rich and poor… to receive a mark…” Yet, here we witness today this incredible transformation unfolding in places such as Africa and India and elsewhere.

READ: The Cashless Society Almost Here And With Some Very Sinister Implications

In an interesting note, the Center for Financial Inclusion, citing a convergence of financial inclusion elements including convenient payment systems and the mobile money revolution, envisions global financial inclusion now within reach.32 Cashless technologies are seen contributing to this “profound demographic shift.”33

Indeed, it’s these cashless technologies that signal an approaching mark-based enabled buy and sell system with each passing day. It wasn’t many years ago that a global cashless society was even technologically feasible, but we now have the computing capacity and power to make it all happen, and very quickly if need be.

When we look carefully at what the passage is saying, we can actually see described in this ancient text today’s landscape of cashless and embeddable technologies, which is the system of the mark in its embryonic stage development. As such, the pace at which the world is approaching this prophecy may well be synced to the quickening technological progress taking place around us.

Engineering the Global Surveillance Society

The cashless society adds a vast new dimension to the surveillance society. Further to being tracked using conventional surveillance techniques, any user of the Internet, credit card or mobile device can now be monitored by their computer and consumer activities.

As was earlier outlined, the surveillance society had already arrived with little public awareness of, and appreciation for, its pervasive presence in our lives. A similar phenomenon is confronting us today with the cashless society and fewer still are alert to its encroaching consequence.

We now embrace surveillance like a dangerous liaison with our preoccupation for everything digital and mobile. As journalist and author Pratap Chatterjee observes:

Today, the surveillance state is so deeply enmeshed in our data devices that we don’t even scream back because technology companies have convinced us that we need to be connected to them to be happy.34

Exclusive use of cash in the new surveillance economy provides some level of anonymity but even these efforts will be futile when the day arrives that cash is made obsolete.

What could it take to galvanise governments into establishing a purely closed digital economy incorporating a device embedded in every individual to buy and sell?

ID cards, payment cards and mobile devices can be lost, stolen and broken. Accordingly, precursor technologies would converge to create the mark, reconstructed as a hybrid of a unique ID and digital wallet device, embedded in the right hand or forehead for a fully integrated security solution.

How about a crisis of such consequence that threatens world security and social order? With looming global threats and ongoing instabilities, countries teetering on catastrophic financial collapse amid increasing terrorist activity and conflicts abroad, the shifting sands of the current fragile world order would seem to be signalling its systemic breakdown.

Perhaps in the midst of such turmoil or following a worldwide economic meltdown, comes a momentous shift to a cashless society with an embedded device compulsory for every individual to participate in the new global financial order. However, the newly hatched revolutionary system will be one that ensnares humanity in a totalitarian global surveillance society unlike the modern world has ever seen given such advanced technology in place. We have already crossed the Rubicon.

Clinton’s Latest Lies Threaten Her Candidacy: Are the Elite Moving Away From Clinton?

08/27/2016

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2016/08/26/clintons-latest-lies-threaten-her-candidacy-are-the-elite-moving-away-from-clinton/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=clintons-latest-lies-threaten-her-candidacy-are-the-elite-moving-away-from-clinton

8-27-2016 10-22-23 AM

Mark Twain once said, there are liars and there are damn liars. I would go one step beyond Mark Twain and add, there are liars, there are damn liars and then there is Hillary Clinton. Hillary is even a bigger liar than husband, in name only, Bill.

As the saying goes, if Clinton lips are moving, they are lying. They are America’s Bonnie and Clyde.

The Ultimate Lie: The Clinton Foundation

8-27-2016 10-22-46 AM

The Clinton Foundation is under fire like no other private organization in American History. The Clinton Foundation is the most corrupt organization in the history of the United States. Never before in American politics do we see a presidential candidate so clearly connected to organized criminal activities.

In her latest round of lies which falls right into line with Benghazi, selling uranium to the Russians through the Clinton Foundation’s front company, Uranium one, and of course, the email scandal, Clinton is now lying about the mixing of Clinton Foundation activities with her duties as Secretary of State. This is a major revelation that reveals a criminal conflict of interest.

The Ultimate Oxymoron: Clinton Signs an Ethics Agreement

Did you know that Clinton actually signed an ethics agreement saying she would not be personally involved with State Department matters and mix these issues in relation to the beleaguered Clinton Foundation? However, Lying Hillary found a loophole. Her State Department Staff did not sign any such prohibitions according to a recent State Department release.  Therefore, Clinton’s ethics agreement at the time she was Secretary of State did not prevent her State Department staff from representing Clinton Foundation matters in relation to the State Department.  This stunning revelation was offered by spokesperson Mark Toner during the State Department press briefing on Monday of this week. Is the State Department throwing Clinton under the bus?

Even the Daily Mail has entered into this controversy when they said “Hillary is simply using Huma and Mills to run her scams for her.”  In other words, even the press is reporting that Hillary has outsourced her conflicts of interest and criminality to her staffers. Of course, should we expect anything different from the greatest liar in American history?

The significance and importance of this revelation cannot be overstated. Does this apparent betrayal by her former employees represent a coming shift away Clinton by the criminal elite? If I were a betting man, I would be of the opinion that criminal elite have already written Clinton off as their representative in the White House, even when the media has not yet written her off. The canary in the mine moment will come when we see cracks, by the MSM, which suggests that they are less than supportive of Clinton’s candidacy.

Why the shift? Why would the criminal elite be preparing to move in another direction away from Hillary? The answer is simple and requires little speculation. Simply put, Clinton cannot win this election. Her criminality is front and canter for all to see. And Clinton is in such a state of physical and cognitive decline, she cannot even carry out her duties as a presidential candidate. She goes days between public appearances. And when she has been appearing in public, her appearances are controlled and very, very brief.

Here is Hillary in public on August 25th in which she is dismissive of the nearby reporters, thus missing an opportunity to make several points in her behalf.

Remember, all political candidates want face time on the TV cameras. Clinton is avoiding this like the plague. Why? IS her political campaign going to fade into oblivion and become the first campaign to be conducted by stealth an their media proxies?

In Another Lie, Hillary Proclaims She Is In Good Health

8-27-2016 10-23-08 AM

There are numerous pictures and videos portraying Hillary’s physical and massive cognitive decline. It is one thing when the body starts to decline. However, it is quite another when physical decline is accompanied by overt cognitive decay and an inability think coherently as evidenced by pronounced difficulty expressing coherent verbal content. Who will ever forget the following recent moment on the campaign trail?

This represents cognitive confusion of the highest order. It is akin to what happens when a dementia patient wanders away from a care facility and becomes “lost”. Hillary Clinton is quickly becoming “lost”.

If the public truly wanted to know about Hillary’s health, we would be demanding the MRI’s of her hypothalamus, often an indicator of good mental and physical health in the elderly With her pronounced state of cognitive confusion, I guarantee she has had multiple MRI’s on that region of the brain. Since she is running for the most important office in the land, the American people should be demanding to see her MRI’s of her hypothalamus. I can guarantee that this revelation will not be forthcoming, or they will use fake MRI’s of another’s brain.

Can Clinton Make It To November?

How can the powers that be keep her on her feet to November.  The rate of decline since the height of the Democratic Primary, since early April, is stunning. I had a neurosurgeon tell me, off the record, that he does not think she will be alive in a year based on the progressive set of photos and videos he has seen.  Yet, Clinton and her handlers keep doing what they do best, they continue to lie. Clinton is a person in serious trouble from a health perspective. Below we see another picture portraying Hillary’s near and ominous demise.

8-27-2016 10-23-34 AM

A Message to All Democrats

Even for democrats that will support Clinton despite her very public criminal activities, how can this amoral block of democratic supporters continue to fall in line behind a woman that cannot even walk a straight line? Please Mr. and Mrs Democrat, tell me how supporting Clinton, at this point, helps the country?

Don’t look for any admissions of the truth from the MSM or the Clinton camp as they will continue to do what they do best, lie!

One final point, if the criminal elite are moving away from Clinton, what do you think there Plan B consists of? Please leave your answer in the comment section.

Why Did the Saudi Regime and Other Gulf Tyrannies Donate Millions to the Clinton Foundation?

By Glenn Greenwald

As the numerous and obvious ethical conflicts surrounding the Clinton Foundation receive more media scrutiny, the tactic of Clinton-loyal journalists is to highlight the charitable work done by the foundation, and then insinuate — or even outright state — that anyone raising these questions is opposed to its charity. James Carville announced that those who criticize the foundation are “going to hell.” Other Clinton loyalists insinuated that Clinton Foundation critics are indifferent to the lives of HIV-positive babies or are anti-gay bigots.

That the Clinton Foundation has done some good work is beyond dispute. But that fact has exactly nothing to do with the profound ethical problems and corruption threats raised by the way its funds have been raised. Hillary Clinton was America’s chief diplomat, and tyrannical regimes such as the Saudis and Qataris jointly donated tens of millions of dollars to an organization run by her family and operated in its name, one whose works has been a prominent feature of her public persona. That extremely valuable opportunity to curry favor with the Clintons, and to secure access to them, continues as she runs for president.

The claim that this is all just about trying to help people in need should not even pass a laugh test, let alone rational scrutiny. To see how true that is, just look at who some of the biggest donors are. Although it did not give while she was secretary of state, the Saudi regime by itself has donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation, with donations coming as late as 2014, as she prepared her presidential run. A group called “Friends of Saudi Arabia,” co-founded “by a Saudi Prince,” gave an additional amount between $1 million and $5 million. The Clinton Foundation says that between $1 million and $5 million was also donated by “the State of Qatar,” the United Arab Emirates, and the government of Brunei. “The State of Kuwait” has donated between $5 million and $10 million.

Theoretically, one could say that these regimes — among the most repressive and regressive in the world — are donating because they deeply believe in the charitable work of the Clinton Foundation and want to help those in need. Is there a single person on the planet who actually believes this? Is Clinton loyalty really so strong that people are going to argue with a straight face that the reason the Saudi, Qatari, Kuwaiti and Emirates regimes donated large amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation is because those regimes simply want to help the foundation achieve its magnanimous goals?

Here’s one of the Clinton Foundation’s principal objectives; decide for yourself if its tyrannical donors are acting with the motive of advancing that charitable goal:

 

Lots of Smoke Here, Hillary

http://original.antiwar.com/buchanan/2016/08/25/lots-smoke-hillary/

 

by Patrick J. Buchanan, August 26, 2016

Prediction: If Hillary Clinton wins, within a year of her inauguration, she will be under investigation by a special prosecutor on charges of political corruption, thereby continuing a family tradition.

For consider what the Associated Press reported this week:

The surest way for a person with private interests to get a meeting with Secretary of State Clinton, or a phone call returned by her, it seems, was to dump a bundle of cash into the Clinton Foundation.

Of 154 outsiders whom Clinton phoned or met with in her first two years at State, 85 had made contributions to the Clinton Foundation, and their contributions, taken together, totaled $156 million.

Conclusion: Access to Secretary of State Clinton could be bought, but it was not cheap. Forty of the 85 donors gave $100,000 or more. Twenty of those whom Clinton met with or phoned dumped in $1 million or more.

To get to the seventh floor of the Clinton State Department for a hearing for one’s plea, the cover charge was high.

Among those who got face time with Hillary Clinton were a Ukrainian oligarch and steel magnate who shipped oil pipe to Iran in violation of U.S. sanctions and a Bangladeshi economist who was under investigation by his government and was eventually pressured to leave his own bank.

The stench is familiar, and all too Clintonian in character.

Recall. On his last day in office, Jan. 20, 2001, Bill Clinton issued a presidential pardon to financier-crook and fugitive from justice Marc Rich, whose wife, Denise, had contributed $450,000 to the Clinton Library.

The Clintons appear belatedly to have recognized their political peril.

Bill has promised that, if Hillary is elected, he will end his big dog days at the foundation and stop taking checks from foreign regimes and entities, and corporate donors. Cash contributions from wealthy Americans will still be gratefully accepted.

One wonders: Will Bill be writing thank-you notes for the millions that will roll in to the family foundation – on White House stationery?

By his actions, Bill is all but conceding that there is a serious conflict of interest between his foundation raking in millions that enhance the family’s prestige and sustain its travel and lifestyle, while providing its big donors with privileged access to the secretary of state.

Yet if Hillary Clinton becomes president, the scheme is unsustainable. Even the Obama-Clinton media might not be able to stomach this.

And even Clinton seems to be conceding the game is up. “I know there’s a lot of smoke, and there’s no fire,” she said in self-defense this week.

She is certainly right about the smoke.

And if, as Democratic apparatchik Steve McMahon assures us that there is “no smoking gun,” no quid-pro-quo, no open-and-shut case of Secretary Clinton taking official action in gratitude to a donor of the family foundation, how can we predict a special prosecutor?

Answer: We are not at the end of this scandal. We are at what Churchill called the “end of the beginning.”

Missing emails are being unearthed at State, through Freedom of Information Act requests, that are filling out the picture Clinton thought had been blotted out when her 33,000 “private” emails were erased by her lawyers.

Someone out there, Julian Assange, Russia, or the rogue websites doing all this hacking, are believed to have many more explosive emails they are preparing to drop before Election Day.

And why is Clinton is keeping her State Department calendar secret from the AP, if it does not contain meetings or calls she does not want to defend? She has defied requests and the AP had to sue to get the schedule of her first two years at State.

Moreover, the AP story on the State Department-Clinton Foundation links was so stunning it is sure to trigger follow-up by investigative journalists who can smell a Pulitzer.

Then there are the contacts between Huma Abedin, her closest aide at State, and Doug Band at the Clinton Foundation, the go-betweens for the donor-Clinton meetings, which has opened a new avenue for investigators.

These were unearthed by Judicial Watch, which is not going away.

The number of persons of interest involved in this suppurating scandal, which has gone from an illicit server, to a panoply of Clinton lies to the public that disgusted the FBI director, to erased emails, to “pay for play,” and now deep into the Clinton Foundation continues to grow.

All that is needed now, to bring us to an independent counsel, is calls for the FBI to reopen and broaden its investigation in light of all that has been revealed since Director Comey said there was not evidence enough to recommend an indictment.

If Clinton controls the Justice Department, calls for a special prosecutor will be resisted, but only until public demand becomes too great.

For there were independent counsels called in Watergate, Iran-Contra and the scandals that led to the impeachment of Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton says there is no fire. But something is causing all that smoke.

Emails Show Clinton Foundation Donor Reached Out To Hillary Clinton Before Arms Export Boost

By David Sirota @davidsirota

Emails just released by the State Department appear to show Clinton Foundation officials brokering a meeting between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a top military leader of Bahrain — a Middle Eastern country that is a major foundation donor. Soon after the correspondence about a meeting, Clinton’s State Department significantly increased arms export authorizations to the country’s autocratic government, even as that nation moved to crush pro-democracy protests.

In a statement quoted by the Wall Street Journal, a Clinton spokesperson, Josh Schwerin, said of the newly released correspondence: “The fact remains that Hillary Clinton never took action as secretary of state because of donations to the Clinton Foundation.”

The emails, which were obtained through a lawsuit by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, detail how foundation operations and State Department business intersected, even though they were supposed to be walled off from one another. Last week, Clinton’s campaign said the foundation would stop accepting foreign government donations if she is elected president — but did not explain why it accepted that money while Clinton was America’s top diplomat.

8-27-2016 10-24-35 AM

A 2015 International Business Times investigative series examined how, in that role, Clinton ran an agency that is responsible for regulating U.S. arms exports, and how those State Department exports approvals substantially increased to governments that donated to the Clinton Foundation. Federal law explicitly designates the secretary of state as “responsible for the continuous supervision and general direction of sales” of arms, and early in her term, the State Department called one arms deal a “top priority” for Clinton.

The email exchange about Bahrain shows the Clinton Foundation’s top executive Doug Band in 2009 asking Clinton’s State Department aide Huma Abedin to set up a meeting between Clinton and Crown Prince Salman, who had recently been named the deputy supreme commander of Bahrain’s armed forces. Band referred to Salman as a “good friend of ours.”

Abedin told Band that Clinton had initially rejected a previous request for a meeting with Salman because “she doesn’t want to commit to anything for thurs or fri until she knows how she will feel.” Soon after, though, Abedin told Band that the State Department was now offering Salman a meeting with Clinton.

Salman has directed $32 million to a Clinton Foundation program, and the Kingdom of Bahrain has donated up to $100,000 more. As Bahrain money flowed into the Clinton Foundation, State Department documents showed that between 2010 and 2012 the Clinton-led State Department approved $630 million worth of direct commercial arms sales to Salman’s military forces in Bahrain. That was a 187 percent increase from the period 2006 to 2008, and the increase came as Bahrain was violently suppressing uprisings.

Prince Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa of Bahrain (R) speaks as former U.S. President Bill Clinton looks on during a special session on peace in the Middle East at the annual Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) September 21, 2010 in New York City. The sixth annual meeting of the CGI gathers prominent individuals in politics, business, science, academics, religion and entertainment to discuss global issues such as climate change and the reconstruction of Haiti. The event, founded by former U.S. President Bill Clinton after he left office, is held the same week as the General Assembly at the United Nations, when most world leaders are in New York City.

During those Arab Spring uprisings of 2011 — when Bahrain was accused of using tear gas on its own people — the Clinton-led State Department approved more than $70,000 worth of arms sales classified as “toxicological agents.” That compared to just $700 worth of such sales in the immediate prior period.

In the same period, the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced proposals to sell missiles and armored vehicles to Bahrain. The office notes that “the Department of State approves individual programs on a case-by-case basis.” The State Department itself says it “is responsible for managing all government-to-government transfers of military equipment to other countries.”

At the time of the armored vehicle proposal, Foreign Policy magazine reported that Clinton’s department “has not released details of the new sale, and Congress has not been notified through the regular process”; instead, the State Department “simply briefed a few congressional offices and is going ahead with the new sale, arguing it didn’t meet the threshold that would require more formal notifications and a public explanation.”

The deal was stalled after congressional opposition — but Clinton’s State Department a year later announced it was again moving forward with arms approvals for Bahrain. That resumption followed a meeting between Salman and U.S. officials including Clinton, according to Reuters.

 Paranoid Hillary Smears Alex Jones During Conspiracy Obsessed Rant

http://www.infowars.com/paranoid-hillary-smears-alex-jones-during-conspiracy-obsessed-rant/

 Claims Vladimir Putin is “Godfather” of the ‘Alt-Right’

Paul Joseph Watson

Hillary Clinton claimed that Donald Trump was embracing “dark conspiracy theories” before going on a conspiracy theory-obsessed rant in which she attacked Alex Jones and claimed that Vladimir Putin was the villainous mastermind behind the ‘Alt-Right’ movement.

The speech in Reno was billed as Hillary’s moment to demonize Trump by equating him with racist, white supremacist conspiracy theorists, but she ended up weaving a giant fairytale of her own, reinvoking the vast “right wing conspiracy” that she has been ridiculed for hammering on in the past.

Except this time it’s former KGB agent and Russian President Vladimir Putin who is somehow the evil genius secretly controlling Infowars, Breitbart, Nigel Farage and the entire Alt-Right. Hillary said Putin is, “The godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism.”

But Trump is the conspiracy theorist.

Yeah, OK Hillary.

Hillary also accused Trump of “taking hate groups mainstream,” the very thing that her and Barack Obama have done by supporting ‘Black Lives Matter’ – a group that has inspired the murder of police officers and whose ideological inspiration is a convicted cop killer on the FBI’s Most Wanted Domestic Terrorists list.

Clinton attacked Trump for appearing on the Alex Jones Show, claiming that Jones “said the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre were child actors and no one was actually killed there.”

In reality, Jones has never claimed that nobody died at Sandy Hook. As Infowars Editor-at-Large, I’ve been attacked repeatedly for saying the very opposite.

Hillary also savaged Trump for becoming embroiled in 9/11 conspiracy theories for saying that Muslims celebrated on 9/11. As we have documented, reports from the day itself clearly suggest that yes Muslims in New Jersey did indeed celebrate the 9/11 attacks.

Clinton is nervous about 9/11 because of her connections with the Saudi government, which as the leaked 28 pages prove, was directly involved with the hijackers who carried out the attacks.

Clinton was also forced to address concerns about her health during the bizarre speech, another nod to the fact that her campaign is rocked about an issue that has gone viral since our video re-ignited the controversy earlier this month.

The fact that Hillary is being forced to resort to the tired old mantra of demonizing her political opposition as “racists” – the same tactic that spectacularly failed during the Brexit campaign in the United Kingdom, proves that she has run out of ideas.

In the days to follow, the Clinton mouthpiece media will dutifully regurgitate Hillary’s race-baiting talking points, absent the fact that she praised Ku Klux Klan leader Robert Byrd as her “friend and mentor,” a man who called black people “mongrels” and fought against the Civil Rights Act.

Hillary’s rampant paranoia about Infowars, Breitbart and the ‘Alt-Right’ illustrates how panicked her campaign is about this movement.

The fact that she committed the ridiculous mistake of driving hundreds of thousands and potentially millions of new people our way by directly attacking us proves that her campaign has absolutely no idea about how the Internet works or how the ‘Alt-Right’ actually operates.

Hillary’s attacks will only succeed in amplifying the message of Infowars, Breitbart and the ‘Alt-Right’ – which is that Hillary is a hideously corrupt career politician who represents the interests of the globalists and the Washington elite and is not fit to serve as President of the United States.

A Heart Breaking Call for Help

08/26/2016

http://www.paulstramer.net/2016/08/a-heart-breaking-call-for-help.html

2-2-2016 1-52-57 PM

By Anna Von Reitz

Yesterday I got word that approximately 6,000 homeowners were hit with gigantic tax bills and — along with the bill — eviction notices, out of the blue.

We are not talking about normal tax bills.  We are talking about tax bills equal to or greater than the entire value of the homes and property—- plop!  Good ole JOSEPH RALPH DOE owes $135,095.00 in taxes on a $100,000.00 home.  Pay up, or else your place will be sold two weeks from now on Saturday…..

Sounds like a nightmare, doesn’t it?

It is a nightmare.  One that people somehow have heard about for months from me and from others, but they still don’t grasp the meaning of my words.  Let’s try it again.

Your identity was stolen by FDR.   Your natural Trade Name on the land jurisdiction of the United States is styled like this:  Joseph Ralph Doe.  And since you aren’t a Merchant Mariner, you never had cause to know that Foreign Situs Trusts used by Harbormasters the world over, are also named and styled like this: Joseph Ralph Doe.

One name, two completely different entities, operating in two different jurisdictions.

One is the natural Given and Family Name of a man standing on the land.  The other is the name of a Foreign Situs Trust operated as a franchise of a bankrupt government services corporation in the international jurisdiction of the sea.

Which one are you? 

FDR just pretended that you were a “vessel in commerce”.  He stole your name and your identity, redefined you from being a living man on the land to being a Foreign Situs Trust on the sea, and used this fraud as a means to bring false charges against you and your assets.

You were never told about this name-identity switch con game, but you paid the price for it from 1933 to 1999, because you were “presumed” to be a willing surety backing the debts of the privately owned bankrupt governmental services corporation doing business as the United States of America, Inc.

When the bankruptcy was finally settled in 1999, the “US Trustees” responsible neglected to re-convey your name and your property back to the jurisdiction of the land.  They could no longer bring charges against  Joe Ralph Doe, so they cast him adrift, as a derelict, bankrupted, “disregarded entity”.  They did the same thing with the State of Wisconsin and the State of Texas and the State of Montana, too.

They had a new con game going.  They brought in a new management company— the IMF—-and booted up a new governmental services corporation calling itself the UNITED STATES (INC.) and named a new legal fiction after you: JOSEPH RALPH DOE.   He’s an ACCOUNT attached to a public trust run as a Cestui Que Vie Trust.

You see, since you never came home from the “sea” jurisdiction, you are presumed dead, missing at sea—-and that’s where you will stay until and unless you wake up and seize hold of your Trade Name and re-convey it to the land jurisdiction you are heir to

Meantime, the JOSEPH RALPH DOE ESTATE has been milked and bilked by “his” presumed Beneficiaries—- the STATE OF MAINE and the STATE OF FLORIDA and the STATE OF OHIO  and the UNITED STATES and the CITY OF NEW YORK and the COUNTY OF MACON have been merrily spending money loaned to them against the value of the assets of the JOSEPH RALPH DOE ESTATE and the MICHAEL GEORGE BROWN ESTATE and the JEANINE JOSEPHINE MCGILL ESTATE and so on.

And now that they have run up stratospheric debts against the assets supposedly held as public trusts in your name, they are bankrupt—- and they are not “just” bankrupt.  Thanks to Mr. Obama, they are under liquidation.

When a corporation goes bankrupt, it is under bankruptcy protection—and no creditors can bother it while it is in bankruptcy.  So long as a corporation shows reasonable good faith, this protection is extended, but when the management of a corporation is completely irresponsible and goes on overspending and fails to take the actions needed to recover and pay its bills, it is forced out of bankruptcy and into liquidation.

There is no protection in liquidation.  The bill collectors just come and demand your property.  Abruptly.  Without warning.  Boom.

Let me say this again: the UNITED STATES, INC. and all its franchises are under liquidation.  That means the STATE OF MAINE and the CITY OF NEW YORK and JACKSON COUNTY and JOSEPH RALPH DOE are under liquidation.

Even though you were never told any of this and even though it is all based on fraud from the beginning and even though you did not benefit from any of this chicanery, all those “Secondary Creditors” are going to show up on your doorstep and they are going to do it in the guise of being the STATE OF MAINE or CITY OF NEW YORK sending tax bills to JOSEPH RALPH DOE—- horrendously huge and sudden “tax bills” that are actually owed by the UNITED STATES, INC.

And if these Swindlers can get away with it, again, they are going to put you in a position where you can’t possibly pay off the debts of YOUR NAME and they are going to seize your home and everything else they can steal by claiming that you, the actual owner, “abandoned” the property, and that your ESTATE owes the debts that they ran up against it as Secondary and  merely Presumed Beneficiaries.

This is called “bilking the public trust” by creating an “odious debt”.  It is completely unlawful and illegal and they are fixing to shove it down your throat.

Now that you have had it explained to you and you have the historical proof in your hands thanks to “You Know Something Is Wrong When……An Affidavit of Probable Cause”—-what are you going to do about it?

Well, I have suggested that you seize your battered, derelict, disregarded entity Name that your parents gave you, and re-convey it to the land jurisdiction of the actual State on the Land—- the State of Maine, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the State of California—-and sue the bastards in the Federal District Court owed to the land jurisdiction, which is the Postal District Court.

These so-called “Judicial Districts” overlay the actual Postal Districts.  If you live in the Seventh Judicial District you also live in the Seventh Postal District.  The Judicial District operates under the jurisdiction and Law of the Sea and is only competent to address corporations and sailors.  The Postal District operates under the jurisdiction of the land and the Law of the Land.

So they will be bringing their charges against JOSEPH RALPH DOE in their corporate courts and under the Judicial District, but you, Joseph Ralph Doe, will be bringing your charges against them in the Postal District Court, instead.

If they refuse to provide the services of the Postal District Court you are owed, you are well within your rights to provide your own.  Get a research group together, look up the Session Laws that established the courts in your state and you will see that there is a Montana State Superior Court provided for as well as a State of Montana Superior Court and you will also see that the thing sitting in your courthouse is something calling itself THE SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE STATE OF MONTANA.

Are you waking up now?

The men supposed to be your judges are actually working for the entities that are creating this entire fraud—- “FOR” THE STATE OF MONTANA.  So while they wear their robes they are in hopeless conflict of interest.  Their jobs depend on raising funds for THE STATE OF MONTANA, and the same STATE OF MONTANA is the entity in liquidation that is trying to foist off all its bills on you and cheat you out of your homes, businesses, labor, and everything else in the process.

You are the actual and rightful Beneficial Owner, the Holder in Due Course of your Given Name, the Priority Creditor of these con men, and just as their dishonesty and “presumptions” are leading to a nightmare scenario for millions of Americans, Americans armed with the facts are preparing to be their worst nightmare in return.

There’s only one way to peacefully settle this— and that is for all of you to come home to the land jurisdiction and exert your status as Priority Creditors of your own ESTATES.  Along with this, you need to scream “Fraud!”  to every politician, every pastor, every community leader, every friend here and abroad, every other American— yes, including members of the Bar.  You need to scream it loud enough for Pope Francis and his “Lord High Chancellors in Equity” to hear the story and get it straight.

Exactly how to counter-sue is being worked on by our Living Law Firm now, so get ready.

We are also working hard on an end run to try to avoid all this nastiness and fraud impacting Mom and Pop at all.

If we succeed, all this “debt” will get wadded up in a ball and tossed out like the worthless paper it is.  If not, be prepared to receive an absolutely huge, totally bogus “tax bill” addressed to YOUR NAME, with or without an eviction and sale notice. Get your ducks in order, your Name back on the land jurisdiction, and keep your ears tuned.

I have, obviously, seen this crappola coming and have raced as fast as I could to repudiate the debt and expose the fraud and raise counter-claims at the highest levels.  Please get off your couches now and add your voices and whatever pesos you can send to support our Living Law Firm. Use PayPal at avannavon@gmail.com or send checks or money orders directly to me, Anna Maria Riezinger, c/o Post Office Box 520994, Big Lake, Alaska 99652.

Our law team is fully engaged, fighting battles all across America.

Our effort to establish the American States and Nations Bank is also taking large amounts of time and effort and is the “other side” of the issues before us. The actual American States and Nations are owed a great deal of credit and assets, more than enough to pay for all public services, but we need safe depository banks and means to provide banking services in all fifty states.  This is a daunting task and we are facing a lot of public ignorance and opposition from the rats. Vast amounts of correspondence, including foreign correspondence and foreign travel have been necessary.

And for each step forward, there is a cost— someone has to go on the journey, someone has to go to the library, someone has to go to the Post Office and pay for the mailing costs, someone has to file the counter-suit and pay the bond, someone has to keep track of the records and files, someone has to pay for a Lexis-Nexus account for the paralegals, someone has to pay for hotels for conferences, someone has to pay to make thousands of copies of documents and public records, someone has to do it all—- and while they are doing it, most of the members of the Living Law Firm who are all working for free– are also struggling to pay basic bills.

I am lucky that I am a Retiree with an independent income, but a lot of the younger folks, including our best educated, most productive, and most ardent non-Bar attorneys are in their prime working years and have families who are suffering and risking because these men and women have chosen to take a stand against this abuse and fraud.  We can’t move forward without them, and they know it, so they are here—- at the risk of their own homes, their own relationships, their own well-being.

One of our young lawyers called last night and said, “I have eighteen bucks to my name.”  He’s a tough guy, so he didn’t whine or cry.  He just stated the fact.  I was able to send him enough to buy food for himself and his wife and two small children, plus keep the lights on and pay for printer ink and postage. That was made possible by all of you.

I can’t do it alone and I can’t do it without men like him. He has conducted a fabulous single-handed investigation of the State Bar Associations and discovered many amazing things.  None of the State Bars are licensed to do business in any state.  Instead, they are operating under a Treaty, the 1947 Bar Association Treaty, which they have breached. They are operating courts as closed union shops in violation of the Taft and Smith-Hartley and other Congressional Acts. They are using GLOSSED text when bringing charges– deliberately making ACCOUNTS expressed in DOG-LATIN appear to be names and embedding these foreign ciphers into the English text with the deliberate intent to deceive and defraud.  They are routinely committing both personage and barratry against Americans. They are required to file Foreign Agent statements and register themselves as such, but they never do.

Step by step, he is building a case that will sink the State Bar Associations and open them  and their members up to execution of the commercial liens that have already been prepared and perfected. He is working full time to put the Bar Associations out of business.

Considering the fraud, breach of trust and treaty, dishonesty, damage, and misery these men and women and their private clubs have caused, putting them out of business and placing effective commercial liens on their property seems like a sacred mission to me, and one that everyone in America (except the rats) has a reason to pursue.

Without the iron fist of the Bar Associations forcing men to be dishonest and to support this corruption, and refusing to let non-Bar lawyers have access to the courts and facilities that our money paid for, a new era will be born in which attorneys will have the exercise of their own conscience and will be held liable for their own acts. Imagine that?

Each member of the Living Law Firm is engaged in topics and research and court actions that are absolutely mind-bogglingly huge in their importance and implications and they are making headway despite every obstacle.  They are doing it on shoestrings and outrage and donations and somehow, by the Grace of God and help you send, the work goes on, the light bill gets paid.

 

Thank you, for making it possible for me to help him, and realize that he is working his heart out for all of you.  Nobody could ever pay for the dedication and passion this young man has shown.

Unanswered Letters Second Batch Number 1 For Woody and Arnie Rosner

08/25/2016

http://www.paulstramer.net/2016/08/unanswered-letters-second-batch-number.html

12-21-2015 3-19-06 PM

By Anna Von Reitz

The problem as Arnie notes is very long-standing and began with a gross over-reach and misrepresentation and fraud back in the 1860’s.  The fraud occurring here was just part of the fraud occurring worldwide.  As we have learned, what happened here also happened in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, India, Africa, Europe—– all using the same boilerplates.

So this was begun throughout the old British Empire like a virus infecting the whole machinery of government and the relationship of all those governments infected with the people that government is meant to serve.

Arnie’s interpretation of reality is simplistic in my view and pre-supposes that all these people did know (or do know) what they are doing and know that it is wrong and are doing it anyway.

I take the more measured view that I didn’t know what was going on and was just a cog in the wheels during the years I worked for the STATE OF ALASKA and Department of Labor and so on, so if I didn’t know this—- who did?  Maybe some people many steps up the ladder, but nobody in my ranks which were still fairly high in the overall structure.

My observation is that information is kept compartmentalized in such a fashion that there is very little chance of anyone outside the core management group ever getting a glimpse of the Big Picture and seeing that it is a crime syndicate at work. This then allows the rats to trade on the good, well-intentioned people they hire and use them as a smokescreen and as unwitting tools to accomplish their fraud.

I have talked to many, many people in state and federal government and the light is just now, very dimly, beginning to come on.

For someone who has worked as a Securities Trader on Wall Street it is child’s play to look at a “Birth Certificate” and recognize it as a bond.  It’s on bond paper.  It’s signed by an officer of the probate court— the Registrar.  It has the required form and numbers.  But how many of us work as Securities Traders on Wall Street—- ?

I rest my case.  I didn’t see it.  Arnie didn’t see it.  I’d guess at least 95% of Americans and Brits and Canadians and Aussies didn’t see it, because if they did—- just like Henry Ford said—- there would be politicians hanging from lampposts already and long ago.  This was done by fraud and stealth.  Our ignorance was preyed upon and utilized and encouraged—- even enforced.

So unlike Arnie, who seems to have an amazing lack of introspection regarding his own former ignorance, I am not big on the Blame Game.  I figure if it took me forty years to figure it out, what chance would Joe Schmoe, carpet installer, ever have?   None.  Colonel House was right.  Not one in a million will have the interest and be in position to figure it out, and of the 400 who do, half will be too old and tired to fight and another 25% will be sunk to their gills sucking off the teats created by the fraud, and another 15% will be technocrats with no communication skills who are frightened out of their minds by what they have glimpsed, which leaves about 40 of us nationwide across all the generations who MIGHT put it all together and who MIGHT raise their hands and who MIGHT have the moxie and resources to bring it forward into the political arena and who MIGHT succeed in raising the alarm and prodding public action……..

Not big odds.  Not at all.  Which explains why the rats have been bold enough to take their “inventions” down to the Patent Office and so obligingly provide us all with irrefutable public records in their own words giving all the details of their scheming and iniquity.

This also explains why the fraud has managed to succeed and thrive and survive in our midst all these years.  Nobody recognized it for what it was.

Now that we do correction is inevitable as rain falling.  It’s just a matter of cluing in more and more and more people. Eventually those participating will be shamed into correction and those being victimized will raise enough rumpus to see it stopped.

That’s another thing that I disagree with Arnie on.  He has always wanted to build a big, monolithic “machine”—like a political party to address this situation.  I have never wanted that.  It has been my theory that doing that would simply be a lot of time and energy spent on the machine and that such an organized effort would give the perps something to aim at and label and target as “opposition”—- when in fact giving the information to people and letting them take 350 million different avenues forward is ultimately more taxing and harder to define and confine and in the end more effective.

One must also remember that our abusers are also for the main, victims.  They pay the same taxes.  They labor under the same threats.  They eventually realize which side of the fence they need to stand on.  It doesn’t take baseball bats and screaming and ranting and accusations and insults a la Arnie.  It takes time—- time for people to take in the information and test it, time to see one’s own situation clearly, time to react, form a plan, and do something.

Anything.

Which brings me to the answer—- not everyone can or will or should do the name change, though I highly recommend it as an effective means of reclaiming your basic identity and placing yourself outside the political presumptions of Babylon.

Instead, we each have to consider what we CAN do and do that.  If you don’t have the money or the understanding or the commitment to do a name change, well, that’s your choice.  Maybe all you can do is share the information with your next door neighbor or your best friend or your pastor.

Who knows what you can or “should do”—- but God and you?

I am perfectly willing to admit and even to suspect that there are people out there right now who don’t have a nickel to spare, yet have the means to make a greater contribution than I have.  That’s just the nature of things.  God delights in sending stripling boys to face giants and mild-mannered carpenters to defeat death and stuttering men to serve as prophets.  It pleases him to raise up a Great-Grandma from Big Lake, Alaska.  And I have no doubt that he will raise up many, many even less likely people to do greater services and find their own ways to end this fraud.

For want of a compass

Everyone needs to read this and contemplate what this man says here, for he is telling it like it absolutely is.  Some may not like or agree with what he states here, but then, those that don’t apparently either haven’t looked at the evidence, or the history, or they are afraid to pull their heads out of the sand.  I have been researching and studying in an attempt to understand what is the viral cancer in our world, for 16 years, and in the beginning, being raised a Southern Baptist, I never wanted to believe this destruction of morality and our economy, along with the wars, had anything to do with the Jews.  However, as I learned more, and began learning the truth about all of the wars, those in particular; the American Civil War, WWI, and WWII, the pattern that began to develop in my mind, became much more clear, and much more aligned with what I had read, coming from a few Real Historians, here in the states, but much more coming from those that had survived and remembered what was actually going on in the European Nations in those eras.

If Americans in particular don’t wake up, the whole world will collapse into nothing but a Jungle Ghetto where all of us will be living day to day, never knowing when we will be attacked by one, or some of our own level in a Mad Max World that we have allowed the Elite to create for us.  In that world we will find that it will not be Black/White,

Jew/White,Jew/black/Chinese/White/Black/ or any other  commonly thought scenario, but all, against all, at our low level of society, there will be no Middle Class, no Rich or Upper Class, and no Poor Class, but only the Poorest of the Poor, and the Super Elite with their Puppets to make sure we don’t somehow get through the gates of the Elite.  These Elites have been ruling the So-called US Government out of the Inner City of London, through the International Monetary System since 1914, at-least.

Although WWII was a major turning point towards using the US as the World Police Force, that would whip every other nation except Britain, into alignment with the One World Order, controlled by these Khazarian Jewish Bankers, the real jump in control using this same system began in 1969, when Henry Kissinger was sent to meet with the Oil Cartel in the Middle East, to set up the World Currency System, formulated by these International Bankers, and we did not know or understand it (although a few did, and tried to tell it), this would be the start of the avalanche!

Think this is not, would not, or will not be the case?  Read what John says below, and then research it further if you aren’t afraid to.  Remember these people claiming to be God’s chosen, for political reasons, are not Hebrews of the Bible, but those that Jesus said, claim to be Jews but are not, but are the Children of their father The Devil, they are a mixed bloodline of ancient Turks and Mongolians who were run out of the ancient land known as Khazaria in the late 700s by the Russians.  Could this be the reason they hate Russians so much?  Ancient maps show Khazaria to be just above and joining Russia.

I know this all sounds unbelievable, but it has been said that; “Truth is stranger than fiction”, and we all know everything has changed in an almost unbelievable and drastic way in our own lifetimes.

For want of a compass and the courage to recognize the purveyors of horror

Headlines trumpet our leaders  for who they are: degenerate criminals  serving as models for our children to follow.

By John Kaminski

pseudoskylax@gmail.com

http://therebel.is/news/kaminski

I have trouble digesting the pomposities of white supremacists bewailing the loss of their privileged status and left tumbling in the tsunami of cultureless anonymity that America the melting pot has become.

They lost their privileged status because of their immoral behavior. The failure of political society in the world is wholly due to the inability of the white man to operate a just legal system. White people should never be trusted. They are, after all, merely the dupes of the Jews, those Turkic Mongol misanthropes who rule over a half blind society by dangling irresistible carrots in front of semi conscious compulsives. Whites are incapable of running their own lives without being controlled by the Jews. That’s what the Jews say, and what far too many white men believe.

Blacks are dupes, too, being used as saboteurs by Jews to destabilize white societies. With the recent clever invasion of Europe engineered by the Jews and their U.S. robocops, unassimilable aliens from Asia and Africa have cast a heavy net over Europe that will drag all these tiny countries living in the past down to dysfunction and ruin, which is just the way the Jews prefer all the other countries to be — broken and totally dependent upon Jews for survival.

Every day, all these countries are looking a lot more like Palestine. With their kind of peace the Jews are bringing to the world, their emphasis is unquestionably creating rubble where tranquillity previously existed.

No significant local groups are forming in America except for those latent outlaws in black neighborhoods all too eager to burn and loot their own blocks on a moment’s notice, as happened recently in Milwaukee before everyone learned it was a black cop who shot a fleeing black thug. But the inexplicable mayhem continued anyway, as if it was fulfilling some deeply ingrained cultural need to riot and destroy as a way of protesting their severely limited potential for affluence and respectability.

It should be mentioned in future conversations about immigration that blacks and in particular and Third World émigrés in general have a much greater inclination to burn down their own neighborhoods than do the austere white folks who actually built these buildings blacks are burning. It simply would not occur to white people to burn down their own neighborhoods as a way to protest perceived injustices against them. We are looking at the savage social traditions Africa has brought to America.

Once upon a time, it seems, back in the days when heroes seemed actually noble and beneficial and nuns rapped children on their knuckles for chewing gum, people didn’t act up because their leaders were seen to be honorable and society had a structure where everybody learned to fit in, or wash out. Deluded or not, America exuded a sense of respect for itself, which began to plummet with the mainstreaming of blacks.

It is always only when the Jews arrive that people are moved to dissatisfaction, and prone to action that ultimately destroys the relative tranquillity they formerly had. Happened in Russia, happened in America, happening everywhere.

Today’s political heroes are rehabilitated whores and druggies, never quite sure of their own honesty as society raves about their positive qualities. Faggots with drug-addicted doctors blackmailed them into declaring homosexuality normal, and now, like a virus, insensate copulation delivered by Miley Cyrus lures impressionable minds toward what they sell as freedom that consistently turns out be self-destructive and self-delusional addictions.

These public intoxications have overwhelmed family networks and more people wind up alienated, addicted and abandoning their children.

The presidents we have had over the past few decades have been paragons of perversion and doublespeak. A plague of deceitful homosexuals has taken over the government, which has itself devolved into a criminal enterprise of value only to the corrupt politicians who profit from it.

Headlines trumpet our leaders for who they are: degenerate criminals serving as models for our children to follow.

Nowhere other than in the slick funhouse of politics is honesty so little regarded. With no leader at the helm who commands respect for his virtues rather than his secret connections, the population succumbs to the public relations, and pays no attention to the crimes committed for the purpose of enforcing the law.

Nowhere, it seems, has a leader to emerge who can stand above politics and speak to the welfare of us all, and not the social science schemes that raise minorities to majority stakeholders, and regard the rest of the population — the ones who built this country — as just so many inconvenient insurance policies waiting to be cashed in.

Although there has always been a hidden Rothschild tentacle guiding the development of the United States, early Americans managed to establish their own freedom. With the evolution of standardization and corporatization, these freedoms have been lost, these choices are no longer ours to make.

We are wired to the grid. To detach from it is to disengage ourselves from the world. Soon it will be obvious that every individual will be programmed from a central point. Our ability to resist this will determine the degree of freedom we will retain.

We are set up perfectly for a race war. The vampire movies are apt metaphors. The powers that be want you to think of poor people or strangers to be less than human, because that will make them easier to kill, like cockroaches in a shattered home, ready to be shipped to the landfill.

Many have said that in the future we will all be prisoners or guards. Which one will you be?

Isn’t it tragically funny that the only real political leader we’ve had during the past few centuries is the one person who is vilified more than any other, Adolf Hitler.

That’s the degree to which reality has been turned upside down by the Jews who have totally commandeered reality and turned human freedom into a prison camp.

Sad to say but had our Allies lost World War II to Germany, none of the wars that followed would ever have happened, because the forces that won World War II make their living making war, and profit mightily from all the wars they cause.

A real leader would work for the people, not for the bankers. We are desperately waiting for one to come along.

To think that we are actually on the cusp of electing a president whom the law enforcement community refuses to indict for her crimes is the signature of a police state with far more dire plans for its ignorant populace.

No authentic progress toward a peaceful world and a humane society may be undertaken without a meticulous vetting of what the Jews have done to the world. When the world finds out, may God have mercy on their souls.

To a world gone mad we direct this conversation . . .

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Why do our best writers remain ignorant of the real reason America is slated for the trash heap. Ladies and gentlemen we are owned lock stock and barrel through the law of the sea by the Banking Cartel, as are most all Nations on earth. These scum-bags have created a system where we humans are reduced to investment contracts and our de-jure government was taken over by the existing de-facto corporation without anyone knowing what was going on. The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INC. and other variations of it are for profit corporations designed to transfer the world’s wealth to the Banking Cartel, killing off all non profitable humans, and wind up owning every asset on earth. This is not that hard to prove, even for the dumb asses watching dancing with the stars. One can only wonder how someone like the above author does not know this in detail.

The #1 Reason Why America Is Submitting to the New World Order

Why are so many Americans simply giving in to the suspension of our Constitution and the widespread criminality among lur leaders (ie Clinton)?

There is a set of psychological reasons why our people, even those that are seemingly more awake than most, would accept this latest tyranny from their government. We know about cognitive dissonance which prevents people from seeing the totality of a threat and thus inhibiting their personal ability to make the paradigm shift needed to accurately perceive the threat. We also know about bystander apathy which stands as an obstacle to getting involved because in this large country, “someone else will do it”. And there is a third psychological reason which prevents us from getting involved because we have been conditioned that our actions cannot make any difference which is reflective of a condition called, learned helplessness.

The Brainwashing of America

8-23-2016 12-34-21 PM

“Yes we can sacrifice liberty for security. And there is no such thing as a conspiracy.”

Americans have been brainwashed into believing that their government will care for them in their time of need. Has this time in American history been foretold? I believe that it has and that H. G. Wells was the prophetic messenger of the New World Order.

Wells actually understood a concept that modern day psychologists refer to as learned helplessness and he wrote about it in his book, The Time Machine, which was originally published in 1895 and the book was later made into a 1960 hit movie by the same name. The book prophetically told of a time in the distant future where the “normal” inhabitants of the earth would be docile, passive and suffer from the condition that modern day psychologists refer to as “learned helplessness.” What is learned helplessness?

Learned Helplessness

Why won’t America stand up for herself? Why is the country, once a country which possessed courage and conviction, now sitting idly while allowing itself to be taken to the slaughter without so much as a whimper?

The answer to the above question lies in the psychological concept known as “Learned Helplessness” as discovered by Martin Seligman in the 1960’s.

“Learned helplessness” occurs when an animal, or a person, is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape from. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action”.

Phase One

In the first phase of the learned helplessness experiment, Seligman placed a dog on an electrical grid, shocked the dog and noted that the dog would demonstrate the ability to escape the aversive stimulus.

Phase Two

In the second phase, the dog was barricaded on the grid and was unable to escape the painful shocks. Eventually the dog laid down and passively accepted the shock.

Phase Three

Seligman then removed the barricades and the dog could have easily escaped the shocks. However, the dog, conditioned by the prior set of events, simply laid down and accepted the shocks, without mounting any resistance whatsoever. This, in large part, is where America is at today.

Conclusion

Unitl America discovers that their actions can and do make a difference, the American sheep will continue to accept their enslavement. Is there anything that can turn this around? Yes, the incessant message of freedom and the exposure of the abject criminality of this establishment as well as the sociopathy of Clinton. All of us need to become missionaries of the truth.
