Iceland Dismantles The Corrupt, Arrests 10 Rothschild Bankers, Then Issues Interpol Arrest Warrant For Rothschild Banker Sigurdur Einarsson!

Volubrjotr

The former banking executive, who lives in West Londonpublicly blamed Gordon Brown for Kaupthing’s collapse in October 2008.

OCTOBER 07, 2012

Iceland‘s implosion was organized and orchestrated along with The United State‘s and other nation state collapses. Bankers felt top GDP had been achieved and that it was time to implode the system, while betting against the success of the nation state financial systems. This on a smaller scale is known as orchestrated “inside trading” which allowed convicted felon George Soros to loot $Billions of dollars.One month earlier than October 2008 this happened ->  On September 11th 2008 $550B Was absconded From U.S. Citizen Checkbooks! ~Volubrjotr

He has now been listed on the website of the international law enforcement agency as “wanted”.

Iceland’s special prosecutor issued an international arrest warrant for Mr Einarsson yesterday, with a description of him as 1.8m tall, 114kg in weight, bald and with blue eyes.

According to Icelandic media reports, he has told the prosecutor’s team that he is willing to return to his home country to help with their enquiries on the condition that he is not arrested on arrival.

His former co-chief executive, Hreidar Mar Sigurdsson, was arrested last week on suspicion of falsifying documents and market manipulation. He is still in police custody.

Kaupthing’s collapse in October 2008 cost the British Treasury £2.5bn and hundreds of UK savers with its Isle of Man branch are still waiting to be fully compensated. Both he and Mr Einarsson have previously denied any wrongdoing over Kaupthing’s collapse.

The bank’s actions are under investigation by the UK Serious Fraud Office and a special inquiry team in Iceland over claims of share ramping and big loans to related parties.

Iceland’s special prosecutor is looking into more than 20 cases of potential criminal activity connected to Kaupthing and the country’s other failed banks.

A special report by Iceland’s parliament showed Kaupthing secretly owned almost half of its own shares.

Two-thirds of Kaupthing’s clients were based in London, including high-profile investors such as Robert Tchenguiz, Simon Halabi and the Candy Brothers, who all lost substantial sums in the crash.

After Kaupthing’s loan book was leaked on to the internet last August, it showed key shareholders and owners were the bank’s main borrowers. Mr Tchenguiz, who was a director of Kaupthing’s largest shareholder, had the biggest debt of €1.74bn.

Following the disclosure, Mr Sigurdsson defended the bank’s practices but made a public apology. “Mistakes were made,” he said. “I’m obliged to offer my apologies to the bank’s shareholders, lenders and employees. I should have prepared the bank better for the storm that hit it.”

Arresting Rothschild

Since the 1900′s the vast majority of the American population has dreamed about saying “NO” to the Unconstitutional, corrupt, Rothschild / Rockefeller banking criminals, but no one has dared to do so. Why? If just half of our Nation, and the “1%”, who pay the majority of the taxes, just said NO MORE! Our Gov’t would literally change over night.

Why is it so hard, for some people to understand, that by simply NOT giving your money, to large Corporations, who then send jobs, Intellectual­­ Property, etc. offshore and promote anti-Constitutional rights… You will accomplish more, than if you used violence. In other words…

RESEARCH WHERE YOU ARE SENDING EVERY SINGLE PENNY!!! Is that so hard?

The truth of the matter is… No one, except the Icelanders, have to been the only culture on the planet to carry out this successfully. Not only have they been successful, at overthrowing the corrupt Gov’t, they’ve drafted a Constitution, that will stop this from happening ever again.

That’s not the best part… The best part, is that they have arrested ALL Rothschild/Rockefeller banking puppets, responsible for the Country’s economic Chaos and meltdown. Last week 9 people were arrested in London and Reykjavik for their possible responsibility for Iceland’s financial collapse in 2008, a deep crisis which developed into an unprecedented public reaction that is changing the country’s direction.

FORGIVE THE DEBT

It has been a revolution without weapons in Iceland, the country that hosts the world’s oldest democracy (since 930), and whose citizens have managed to effect change by going on demonstrations and banging pots and pans. Why have the rest of the Western countries not even heard about it?

Pressure from Icelandic citizens’ has managed not only to bring down a government, but also begin the drafting of a new constitution (in process) and is seeking to put in jail those bankers responsible for the financial crisis in the country.

As the saying goes, if you ask for things politely it is much easier to get them. This quiet revolutionary process has its origins in 2008 when the Icelandic government decided to nationalise the three largest banks, Landsbanki, Kaupthing and Glitnir, whose clients were mainly British, and North and South American.

After the State took over, the official currency (krona) plummeted and the stock market suspended its activity after a 76% collapse. Iceland was becoming bankrupt and to save the situation, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) injected U.S. $ 2,100 million and the Nordic countries helped with another 2,500 million.

Great victories of ordinary people!

While banks and local and foreign authorities were desperately seeking economic solutions, the Icelandic people took to the streets and their persistent daily demonstrations outside parliament in Reykjavik prompted the resignation of the conservative Prime Minister Geir H. Haarde and his entire government. Citizens demanded, in addition, to convene early elections, and they succeeded.

In April a coalition government was elected, formed by the Social Democratic Alliance and the Left Green Movement, headed by a new Prime Minister, Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir.

Throughout 2009 the Icelandic economy continued to be in a precarious situation (at the end of the year the GDP had dropped by 7%) but, despite this, the Parliament proposed to repay the debt to Britain and the Netherlands with a payment of 3,500 million Euros, a sum to be paid every month by Icelandic families for 15 years at 5.5% interest.

  2. Hungary Kills The Rothschild Banks: Ordered To Vacate Country.

The move sparked anger again in the Icelanders, who returned to the streets demanding that, at least, that decision was put to a referendum. Another big small victory for the street protests: in March 2010 that vote was held and an overwhelming 93% of the population refused to repay the debt, at least with those conditions.

This forced the creditors to rethink the deal and improve it, offering 3% interest and payment over 37 years. Not even that was enough. The current president, on seeing that Parliament approved the agreement by a narrow margin, decided last month not to approve it and to call on the Icelandic people to vote in a referendum so that they would have the last word.

SEPTEMBER 12, 2009 +2,000,000 AMERICANS BEGIN THE RUMBLINGS OF WAR UPON THE CORRUPT!

The bankers are fleeing in fear Returning to the tense situation in 2010, while the Icelanders were refusing to pay a debt incurred by financial sharks without consultation, the coalition government had launched an investigation to determine legal responsibilities for the fatal economic crisis and had already arrested several bankers and top executives closely linked to high risk operations.

Interpol, meanwhile, had issued an international arrest warrant against Sigurdur Einarsson, former president of one of the banks. This situation led scared bankers and executives to leave the country en masse.

In this context of crisis, an assembly was elected to draft a new constitution that would reflect the lessons learned and replace the current one, inspired by the Danish constitution. To do this, instead of calling experts and politicians, Iceland decided to appeal directly to the people, after all they have sovereign power over the law.

More than 500 Icelanders presented themselves as candidates to ­participate in this exercise in direct democracy and write a new constitution. 25 of them, without party affiliations, including lawyers, students, journalists, farmers and trade union representatives were elected.

  1. Do You Remember January 3, 2007? Well This Is What Happened!

Among other developments, this constitution will call for the protection, like no other, of freedom of information and expression in the so-called Icelandic Modern Media Initiative, in a bill that aims to make the country a safe haven for investigative journalism and freedom of information, where sources, journalists and Internet providers that host news reporting are protected. The people, for once, will decide the future of the country while bankers and politicians witness the transformation of a nation from the sidelines.

The State of Our Nation The Greatest Threat to Our Freedoms Is the Government

By John W. Whitehead

“Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.” ― George Orwell, Animal Farm

What was striking about this year’s State of the Union address was not the sheer arrogance of the president’s remarks, the staged nature of the proceedings and interactions, or the predictable posturing of the rebuttals, but the extent to which the members of the various branches of government—President Obama, Congress, the Supreme Court, and the assorted government agencies—are just one big, brawling, noisy, semi-incestuous clan.

Watching these bureaucrats, both elected and appointed, interact in the unguarded moments before the event, with their hugging and kissing and nudging and joking and hobnobbing and general high spirits, I was reminded anew that these people—Republicans and Democrats alike—are united in a common goal, and it is not to protect and defend the Constitution. No, as Orwell recognized in Animal Farm, their common goal is to maintain the status quo, a goal that is helped along by an unquestioning, easily mollified, corporate media. In this way, the carefully crafted spectacle that is the State of the Union address is just that: an exaggerated farce of political theater intended to dazzle, distract and divide us, all the while the police state marches steadily forward.

No matter what the president and his cohorts say or how convincingly they say it, the reality Americans must contend with is that the world is no better the day after President Obama’s State of the Union address than it was the day before. Indeed, if the following rundown on the actual state of our freedoms is anything to go by, the world is a far more dangerous place.

Americans have no protection against police abuse. It is no longer unusual to hear about incidents in which police shoot unarmed individuals first and ask questions later, such as the 16-year-old teenager who skipped school only to be shot by police after they mistook him for a fleeing burglar. Then there was the unarmed black man in Texas “who was pursued and shot in the back of the neck by Austin Police… after failing to properly identify himself and leaving the scene of an unrelated incident.” And who could forget the 19-year-old Seattle woman who was accidentally shot in the leg by police after she refused to show her hands? What is increasingly common, however, is the news that the officers involved in these incidents get off with little more than a slap on the hands.

Americans are little more than pocketbooks to fund the police state. If there is any absolute maxim by which the federal government seems to operate, it is that the American taxpayer always gets ripped off. This is true, whether you’re talking about taxpayers being forced to fund high-priced weaponry that will be used against us, endless wars that do little for our safety or our freedoms, or bloated government agencies such as the National Security Agency with its secret budgets, covert agendas and clandestine activities. Rubbing salt in the wound, even monetary awards in lawsuits against government officials who are found guilty of wrongdoing are paid by the taxpayer.

Americans are no longer innocent until proven guilty. We once operated under the assumption that you were innocent until proven guilty. Due in large part to rapid advances in technology and a heightened surveillance culture, the burden of proof has been shifted so that the right to be considered innocent until proven guilty has been usurped by a new norm in which all citizens are suspects. This is exemplified by police practices of stopping and frisking people who are merely walking down the street and where there is no evidence of wrongdoing. Likewise, by subjecting Americans to full-body scans and license-plate readers without their knowledge or compliance and then storing the scans for later use, the government—in cahoots with the corporate state—has erected the ultimate suspect society. In such an environment, we are all potentially guilty of some wrongdoing or other.

Americans no longer have a right to self-defense. In the wake of various shootings in recent years, “gun control” has become a resounding theme for government officials, with President Obama even going so far as to pledge to reduce gun violence “with or without Congress.” Those advocating gun reform see the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms as applying only to government officials. As a result, even Americans who legally own firearms are being treated with suspicion and, in some cases, undue violence. In one case, a Texas man had his home subjected to a no-knock raid and was shot in his bed after police, attempting to deliver a routine search warrant, learned that he was in legal possession of a firearm. In another incident, a Florida man who was licensed to carry a concealed firearm found himself detained for two hours during a routine traffic stop in Maryland while the arresting officer searched his vehicle in vain for the man’s gun, which he had left at home.

Americans no longer have a right to private property. If government agents can invade your home, break down your doors, kill your dog, damage your furnishings and terrorize your family, your property is no longer private and secure—it belongs to the government. Likewise, if government officials can fine and arrest you for growing vegetables in your front yard, praying with friends in your living room, installing solar panels on your roof, and raising chickens in your backyard, you’re no longer the owner of your property.

Americans no longer have a say about what their children are exposed to in school. Incredibly, the government continues to insist that parents essentially forfeit their rights when they send their children to a public school. This growing tension over whether young people, especially those in the public schools, are essentially wards of the state, to do with as government officials deem appropriate, in defiance of the children’s constitutional rights and those of their parents, is reflected in the debate over sex education programs that expose young people to all manner of sexual practices and terminology, zero tolerance policies that strip students of any due process rights, let alone parental involvement in school discipline, and Common Core programs that teach students to be test-takers rather than critical thinkers.

Americans are powerless in the face of militarized police. In early America, citizens were considered equals with law enforcement officials. Authorities were rarely permitted to enter one’s home without permission or in a deceitful manner. And it was not uncommon for police officers to be held personally liable for trespass when they wrongfully invaded a citizen’s home. Unlike today, early Americans could resist arrest when a police officer tried to restrain them without proper justification or a warrant—which the police had to allow citizens to read before arresting them. (Daring to dispute a warrant with a police official today who is armed with high-tech military weapons and tasers would be nothing short of suicidal.) As police forces across the country continue to be transformed into outposts of the military, with police agencies acquiring military-grade hardware in droves, Americans are finding their once-peaceful communities transformed into military outposts, complete with tanks, weaponry, and other equipment designed for the battlefield.

Americans no longer have a right to bodily integrity. Court rulings undermining the Fourth Amendment and justifying invasive strip searches have left us powerless against police empowered to forcefully draw our blood, strip search us, and probe us intimately. Accounts are on the rise of individuals—men and women—being subjected to what is essentially government-sanctioned rape by police in the course of “routine” traffic stops. Most recently, a New Mexico man was subjected to a 12-hour ordeal of anal probes, X-rays, enemas, and finally a colonoscopy because he allegedly rolled through a stop sign.

Americans no longer have a right to the expectation of privacy. Despite the staggering number of revelations about government spying on Americans’ phone calls, Facebook posts, Twitter tweets, Google searches, emails, bookstore and grocery purchases, bank statements, commuter toll records, etc., Congress, the president and the courts have done little to nothing to counteract these abuses. Instead, they seem determined to accustom us to life in this electronic concentration camp.

Americans no longer have a representative government. We have moved beyond the era of representative government and entered a new age, let’s call it the age of authoritarianism. History may show that from this point forward, we will have left behind any semblance of constitutional government and entered into a militaristic state where all citizens are suspects and security trumps freedom. Even with its constantly shifting terrain, this topsy-turvy travesty of law and government has become America’s new normal. It is not overstating matters to say that Congress, which has done its best to keep their unhappy constituents at a distance, may well be the most self-serving, semi-corrupt institution in America.

Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. The U.S. Supreme Court was intended to be an institution established to intervene and protect the people against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet through their deference to police power, preference for security over freedom, and evisceration of our most basic rights for the sake of order and expediency, the justices of the Supreme Court have become the architects of the American police state in which we now live, while the lower courts have appointed themselves courts of order, concerned primarily with advancing the government’s agenda, no matter how unjust or illegal.

Yes, the world is a far more dangerous place than it was a year ago. What the president failed to mention in his State of the Union address, however (and what I document in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State), is the fact that it’s the government that poses the gravest threat to our freedoms and way of life, and no amount of politicking, parsing or pandering will change that.

The petition to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler

01/28/2014

Olddog just signed this petition about Net Neutrality, Please join him and help stop corporate internet takeover.

Verizon struck the final blow against Net Neutrality when a federal appeals court ruled in its favor and struck down the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet Order.

The FCC must take action now to stop the corporate takeover of the internet.

http://act.credoaction.com/sign/verizon_netneutrality/?sp_ref=27591413.4.2081.e.8982.2&referring_akid=9854.5310205.VoL57G&source=mailto_sp

The petition to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler reads:

“At the behest of Verizon, a federal appellate court struck down the FCC’s Open Internet Order and internet providers are now free to discriminate – block or slow down – any web site or application they choose. As the new FCC Chair you must reclassify broadband Internet access as a telecommunications service and save Net Neutrality.”

Verizon killed Net Neutrality when a federal appeals court ruled in its favor and struck down the Federal Communications Commission’s Open Internet Order.1

Net Neutrality is a principle that says that Internet users, not Internet service providers (ISPs), should be in control. It ensures that Internet service providers can’t speed up, slow down, or block web content based on its source, ownership, or destination.

And now Net Neutrality is dead – at least until the FCC stands up to Verizon and AT&T and passes strong rules that will pass the legal test for ensuring Americans have access to a free and open Internet.

Tell new FCC Chair Tom Wheeler: Save Net Neutrality. Click here to sign automatically.

The verdict was a disappointment but came as no surprise. Back in 2010, the FCC, led by Obama-appointee Julius Genachowski, voted to adopt rules that enshrined in federal regulations for the first time the ability of AT&T, Comcast, Verizon and other ISPs to discriminate between sources and types of content.

Now even those meager protections have been struck down. But the new chair of the FCC, Tom Wheeler, can save Net Neutrality by doing what former FCC chair Genachowski failed to do. He can stand up to Verizon and AT&T, and undo the Bush-era decision to deregulate broadband Internet providers and allow them to operate outside of the legal framework that has traditionally applied to companies that offer two-way communication services.

Tell FCC Tom Wheeler: Reclassify broadband as a telecom service, and enact strong Net Neutrality protections. Click here to sign automatically.

Back in 2010, this latest court decision was utterly predictable. A federal court had already ruled that unless the FCC reversed the Bush-era decision to deregulate broadband, the FCC couldn’t enforce Net Neutrality rules. Then FCC Chair Genachowski tested the waters with a proposal to reregulate (or in the jargon of the FCC “reclassify”) broadband. Genachowski himself said that, according to the FCC General Counsel, pushing ahead with policies without reregulating broadband would be unwise given the tenuous legal footing the FCC would find itself in.

But Obama administration’s support for Net Neutrality was so weak that his FCC declined to reclassify broadband as a prerequisite to passing Net Neutrality rules. Without providing this legal framework, the Open Internet Order was never anything more than a cynical ploy by Democrats to claim a victory on Net Neutrality while actually caving on real protections for consumers.

New FCC chair Tom Wheeler has a chance to change this. He recently made a strong statement in support of Net Neutrality and the necessary legal framework to defend it, saying that “it is essential that the FCC continue to maintain an open Internet and maintain the legal ability to intervene promptly and effectively in the event of aggravated circumstances.”

But it’s unclear if he’ll simply kick the can down the road by appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court (a body that, with the outrageous Citizens United decision, has already proved itself more loyal to corporate control than to protecting our democracy). We need him to muster the political will to take action immediately and save Net Neutrality by reversing the deregulation of broadband and giving teeth to the FCC’s ability to enforce Net Neutrality rules and force Internet service providers to treat all traffic equally.

Tell FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler: Stop the corporate takeover of the internet and save Net Neutrality. Click the link below to sign the petition automatically:

IT’S WAR: STOP THE TPP AND TAFTA

01/26/2014

“The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer… form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country. Men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws.” President Andrew Jackson

The first of the job and sovereignty killing treaties so innocently called an agreement was NAFTA. Official title: North American Free Trade Agreement. In reality: No American Factories Taking Applications. That unconstitutional tool of the global elite was pushed through by globalist Newt Gingrich with enormous help from Rush Limbaugh. Marxist Bill Clinton signed it into “law” in December 1993. Then began the massive destruction of the three job sectors that made America the most prosperous nation on the face of this earth: manufacturing, industrial and agriculture.

A bill was introduced in 2011 to finally get us out. It got zero attention from the old media. Forget FOX. Too many Americans pay little to no attention to bills sitting in the biggest whore house on the planet- except for hot button issues like abortion; it went no where. There were too few of us to make it happen.

H.R. 29: To provide for the withdrawal of the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement

“NAFTA has done way too much damage, and we need to repeal it. NAFTA has cost too many jobs, eroded our industrial base and decimated towns and communities,” he said in a statement. “Enough is enough – we need to focus on creating jobs right here in the United States – not in foreign countries.”

“The bill currently has just 10 co-sponsors: Democratic Reps. Joe Baca, Lynn Woolsey and Bob Filner of California; Michael Capuano (MA), Peter DeFazio (OR), Marcy Kaptur (OH), Larry Kissell (NC) and Michael Michaud (ME). Two Republicans are also backing the legislation: Texas’ Ron Paul and North Carolina’s Walter Jones. The bill has been referred to the House Ways and Means Committee, but no action has been taken on it since that time.

“Prior to the implementation of NAFTA, the U.S. held a small trade surplus with Mexico of approximately $10 million. By 2007, that surplus had turned into an astounding $91 billion trade deficit. With Canada and Mexico combined, the U.S. has taken a $24 billion trade deficit prior to NAFTA and turned it into a $190 billion deficit – a 691 percent increase.

“NAFTA was also supposed to usher in a new age of prosperity among the American people as thousands upon thousands of good-paying jobs were to be created through the increase in trade surplus that never quite came to fruition. As you can imagine, just the opposite happened. Each and every year more and more jobs are outsourced to Mexico where labor is incredibly cheap and environmental concerns are a mere afterthought. The raft of jobs outsourced to Mexico forced American workers into direct competition with one another and drove down wages for all.

“Now Americans are forced to compete, not only with one another, but also with Mexican workers who are willing to work for much less than the average American. In the U.S., the average factory worker makes roughly $18 per hour while his Mexican counterpart earns just $3 per hour. This has encouraged a “race to the bottom” in which American companies are frequently relocating production facilities across the border. Iconic American companies such as Coca Cola, Ford, RCA, General Motors, General Electric and Nokia have all opened up assembly plants in Mexico. In fact, GE employs 30,000 Mexicans in 35 factories in the country.

“This race to the bottom has had a devastating effect on America’s manufacturing base. Pre-NAFTA, the U.S. had 16.8 million people employed in the manufacturing field. By 2007, that number was down to just 13.9 million. That accounts for over 20 percent of America’s manufacturing jobs over the past 14 years. Those good-paying manufacturing jobs have been replaced by low-paying service sector jobs with little or no benefits.”

Twenty Years of NAFTA Sucking Sound
NAFTA: 20 Years of Regret for Mexico

So many of us across this country warned what would happen, who and what was behind it:

“What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system…a first step toward a new world order.” July 18, 1993, CFR/Trilateralist Henry Kissinger, LA Times on NAFTA. There’s no question in my mind Kissinger was a Soviet spy; a dirty traitor. Yes, communists were elected to Congress; see The Venona Secrets: Exposing Soviet Espionage and America’s Traitors.

I would like you to take a look at this map published in the Denver [Com]Post, August 30, 1992: A New North America. While that “agreement” was being pushed by the hands that own and direct the WH and the Outlaw Congress, many of us tried to warn, but few paid any attention. It is a blue print to break up our country in favor of regions comprising a world government. Right there for the whole country to see but who did not see because NAFTA was being sold as a way to bring “cheap” goods to America.

Twenty years ago. Twenty year olds today were infants when it was passed. Thirty year olds were age 10. I feel very few to this day have any understanding about just how momentous it was and what it would do to this country. I knew because I was running for Congress at the time and did a crash course on trade and tariffs. I also read an outstanding book, The Pooring of America: Competition & The Myth of Free Trade by Dr. Ravi Batra. Today, those adults don’t have a clue; their grand parents and parents driven out of long time, secure, good paying jobs, losing everything and forced into big urban cities infested with crime and violence looking for new jobs.

My opponent, incumbent Wally the Waffle Herger, wrote a letter to the Farm Bureau in that district two weeks before the vote outlining how bad NAFTA would be for farmers and ranchers. Two weeks later he voted for it anyway. The people in that district went on to reelect him after he voted to destroy their livelihoods; I’ve already written many times about how vote fraud won Wally reelection, so I won’t waste time here. The Waffle spent most of his life on the public dime, first as a school board honcho in 1976, then on to the California State Legislature for eight years and then the Outlaw Congress for 26 years. He’s now retired with full pension benefits paid for by the sweat of your labor for the rest of his life. (With service of 20-25 years, a Member of Congress could retire with up to 80 percent of his or her final salary replaced.) The Waffle just made the 25 year mark.

Next came the grand daddy: The WTO/GATT. The World Trade Organization/ General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. The original one was signed in 1947. The big and final one signed into “law” in Marrakesh in 1994, by Marxist Bill Clinton. Full page ad, NY Times, April 15, 1994:1944. Bretton Woods: The IMF and the World Bank. 1945. San Francisco: The United Nations. 1994, Marrakech: The World Trade Organization. History knows where it’s going. The final act of the Uruguay Round….to the WTO, the third pillar of the New World Order, along with the UN and the IMF.”

We the people are forced to fund our own destruction by thugs in the IRS courtesy of your incumbent and mine. The Outlaw Congress has been unconstitutionally stealing the fruits of our labor in dues for the communist UN and another cabal of evil thieves, the IMF, International Monetary Fund longer than I’ve been alive. No where in Art. 1, Sec. 8, does it give the U.S. Congress any authority to steal from us to give to those private organizations out to destroy our sovereignty. Yet, do the people demand candidates running for Congress, challengers or incumbents, get us out of those destructive entities draining the life blood of America? Oh, a few of us “extremists”.

During the hearings on that monster GATT/WTO, French financier, the late Sir James Goldsmith, testified in front of Ernest Hollings committee. He demonstrated that GATT would gut the American textile market. The following are some quotes from the Washington Times, Dec. 6, 1993, which accurately reflect Sir Goldsmith’s statements during the hearings:

“Global free trade will force the poor of the rich countries to subsidize the rich in poor countries. What GATT means is that our national wealth, accumulated over centuries, will be transferred from a developed country like Britain to developing countries like Communist China, now building its first oceangoing navy in 500 years. China, with its 1.2 billion people, three Indochinese states with 900 million, the former Soviet republics with some 300 million, and many more can supply skilled labor for a fraction of Western costs. Five dollars in Communist China is the equivalent of a $100 wage in Europe.

“It is quite amazing that GATT is sowing the seeds for global social upheaval and that it is not even the subject of debate in America … If the masses understood the truth about GATT, there would be blood in the streets of many capitals. A healthy national economy has to produce a large part of its own needs. It cannot simply import what it needs and use its labor force to provide services for other countries. We have to rethink from top to bottom why we have elevated global free trade to the status of sacred cow, or moral dogma. It is a fatally flawed concept that will impoverish and destabilize the industrialized world while cruelly ravaging the Third World.”

There were riots in a few locations around the country over the WTO; up to 100,000 people in SeattleHuge ones in Europe. The late Sir Goldsmith told America what would happen and it did on a massive scale.

In 2000, the Outlaw Congress had the chance to get us out of GATT/WTO. The effort was killed by John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi. Since the impostor president has been squatting in the White House, John Boehner has given Barry Soetoro aka Obama every damn “free” trade treaty or “agreement” he’s pushed for; sleeping with America’s enemy, Johnny boy. Do have another glass of the red wine you’re so fond of.

On June 9, 2005, the House voted 338-86 to reject a motion to withdraw congressional approval of the 1994 agreement establishing the WTO and governing body, GATT. George Bush, Jr., following in his father’s steps to destroy our sovereignty and American jobs in favor of a new world order signed another job killing treaty: CAFTA – the Central America Free Trade Agreement. While the globalists in the Outlaw Congress were working to get CAFTA shoved down our throats, I was driving around the country doing my work. At every hotel and restaurant I ask clerks, waiters/waitresses: What do you think of the new “free” trade treaty being proposed, CAFTA? Not one American knew what I was talking about. Not a single working American knew anything about it; all I got is blank stares.

Once NAFTA got going, corporations that used to support American workers took MILLIONS of good paying, steady career jobs – particularly the steel and textile industry – and shipped them to Mexico. Suddenly, THOUSANDS of factories closed. Cities and towns that flourished for more than a century providing jobs for your grand parents generation they stayed in for their entire lives until retirement became little more than ghost towns. I know because I traveled extensively through Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. I saw with my own eyes what NAFTA did; it has been a complete and total disaster, as has our participation in the WTO.

One book that stands out on this issue is America’s Projectionist Takeoff 1815- 1914: The Neglected American School of Political Economy by Michael Hudson. I invite you to read the comments about Hudson’s book; it really is a must read. What made us a power house has been destroyed since 1994 and yet, every two years the American people who have suffered so badly because of all those treaties continue to reelect the same scum bags back to the House of Representatives and Senate who have taken us to poverty with more in the works.

Patrick Buchanan explains it perfectly:

“It seems that, despite the academic consensus that free trade is a win-win for all, free trade is not free. Great nations that have risen to global power by protecting their manufacturing, like Britain in the early 19th century, have begun their relative decline when they embraced free trade. Between 1870 and 1914, projectionist America and Germany both shoved Britain aside.

“Since Y2K, China, which protects its industrial base by keeping its currency artificially cheap, has surged past Italy, Britain, France, Germany and Japan to become the world’s second largest economy. And they are gaining steadily on us. Free trade appears to be the policy of fading nations.

“Perhaps it is time for a profit and loss statement of its costs and benefits. Undeniably, free trade has been a bonanza for the top 1 percent and many among our top 10 percent. As U.S. manufacturers shut down scores of thousands of U.S. factories to finance new plants in Asia, their production costs plummeted. Wages and benefits for Asians were, and are still, but a fraction of those of American workers.

“Health, safety and environmental standards were in some cases almost nonexistent. The eight-story garment factory in Bangladesh that collapsed in April, killing 1,100 workers, mostly women, and injuring another 2,500, would never have passed a U.S. building inspection.

“After having shifted production overseas and dramatically lowered costs, U.S. transnational’s saw a surge in profits. These were used to push corporate salaries into the stratosphere, increase dividends to shareholders, and keep the Washington lobbyists working the Hill day and night for fast track and free trade. And the lifestyle of our corporate elites changed. Where their fathers walked sooty factory floors in smokestack towns in World War II, these masters of the universe fly Gulfstream Vs to Davos and Dubai to dine with titled Europeans, Saudi princes and Chinese billionaires.

“These are America’s winners from free trade. The losers? Middle Americans. The average U.S. family has not seen a rise in real wages in 40 years. This is directly traceable to the loss of more than one-third of all U.S. manufacturing jobs. And that loss, that deindustrialization of America, is directly tied to the $10 trillion in trade deficits since Bush I.

“Writers who celebrate how U.S. imports have risen in this month or that year almost never mention the trade deficit for this month or that year. Perhaps that is because the United States has not run a trade surplus in four decades, whereas, in the first 70 years of the 20th century, we never ran a trade deficit. Trade surpluses add to GDP; trade deficits subtract from GDP.

“And when in a company town the company closes the factory, the town often dies. And all the little satellite businesses — bars, diners, food stores, pharmacies — that rose around the factory, they die, too. “The tombstones of countless dead towns across America should read: Killed by Free Trade. Tenured economists on college campuses call this “creative destruction.” End of excerpt.

If you think it doesn’t or won’t affect you, it has and will continue through trickle down economics, one of the few things I agreed with Reagan. I live in a small town in W. Texas. Last week three businesses that were here when I arrived in June 2006, closed their doors. The Permian Basin where I live is oil country. Good wages and fairly low unemployment. But, something is making people hold on to their money.

Now comes two more threats, which will bring even more job losses. More jobs for people in foreign countries while Americans live on food stamps and unemployment for years. More loss of OUR sovereignty.

Don’t listen to those promoting the TPP & Transatlantic Free Trade Area. While I am not against corporations (I think Hobby Lobby is a fine example of good, God fearing Americans running a highly successful private sector business), I am against what they’ve become, all for more money. Greed long ago took over love of country and decency.

Yes, I do fully understand the reality of what “free” trade did. It pitted American workers at double digit dollars per hour against workers in foreign countries making the equivalent of US $5.00 a day. Yes, I fully understand the problems all those “free” trade treaties created for companies and corporations here in America. Instead of throwing the rats out of the Outlaw Congress who caused this collapse of our job market, mega corporations put big money into their coffers to get them reelected. Uninformed Americans followed in the true sense of the herding technique because of blind loyalty to their party by reelecting the same incumbents whose votes contributed to killing our most important job markets. In reality, American workers fired themselves by supporting the same incumbents who destroyed their jobs.

But, it isn’t just the “free” trade and cheap overseas wages; it’s also about the purchasing power of the dollar, fiat currency and the “Federal” Reserve. Until one understands the devastation caused by our debauched currency along with heavy, progressive taxation, they won’t get the full picture.

The TPP & TAFTA must be stopped because it is a job and sovereignty killing tool for world government advocates.

The Facts – What is TPP? – Very specific as to what the TPP is and how it will further destroy us.

Expose the TPP – a good overview

Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA):

“Some call it the Transatlantic Free Trade Area (TAFTA) and others call it the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). They’re both names for the same thing, a dangerous proposal that will have disastrous effects on the economy, health, safety, freedom, and sovereignty of the United States and her citizens.

“Closed-door meetings started earlier this year on the proposed TAFTA/TTIP. Corporate interests in the United States and Europe have been pushing for an agreement for decades, but only now is it beginning to materialize. These moneyed interests now have more power than ever over our politicians and are using it to their advantage. These corporations are the ones really writing this agreement. Just like with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), there are over 600 corporate “advisers” with access to the text of the agreement, while even our elected congressional representatives cannot read the entire agreement. These corporations will be fine tuning the agreements to maximize their profits, with no regard to what this will do to the United States.

“Unlike many of the previous agreements the United States has signed onto, TAFTA/TTIP is not an agreement with a low-wage, low-regulation country. Wages in the EU are comparable to those in the United States, and European labor and environmental standards are often more stringent than those we have here. We are unlikely to see this agreement have the same direct negative impact on U.S. jobs that previous agreements have had, with scores of U.S. jobs sent overseas due to agreements like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Of the 29 chapters in TAFTA/TTIP, only 5 directly deal with trade.

“So if this agreement is not about trade, what is it about? Inevitably this will be about gutting the ability of our government to do its job. This agreement is likely to further entrench the power of corporations to shape the laws of sovereign nations to fit their needs. If this agreement is passed we will be giving up more of our sovereignty, not to Europe, but to corporations who care only about their bottom lines.” More at the link.

The TPP and TAFTA are poison. Both are being negotiated behind closed doors. Not even the Outlaw Congress is allowed to see the text in those “agreements”:

“U.S. Senator Ron Wyden has introduced S. 3225, legislation that would require the Office of the United States Trade Representative to disclose its TPP documents to all members of Congress. Wyden asserted. “The majority of Congress is being kept in the dark as to the substance of the TPP negotiations, while representatives of U.S. corporations — like Halliburton, Chevron, PHRMA, Comcast, and the Motion Picture Association of America — are being consulted and made privy to details of the agreement.”

“A Corporate Trojan Horse”: Obama Pushes Secretive TPP Trade Pact, Would Rewrite Swath of U.S. Laws

“As the federal government shutdown continues, Secretary of State John Kerry heads to Asia for secret talks on a sweeping new trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The TPP is often referred to by critics as “NAFTA on steroids,” and would establish a free trade zone that would stretch from Vietnam to Chile, encompassing 800 million people — about a third of world trade and nearly 40 percent of the global economy. While the text of the treaty has been largely negotiated behind closed doors and, until June, kept secret from Congress, more than 600 corporate advisers reportedly have access to the measure, including employees of Halliburton and Monsanto.

“This is not mainly about trade,” says Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch. “It is a corporate Trojan horse. The agreement has 29 chapters, and only five of them have to do with trade. The other 24 chapters either handcuff our domestic governments, limiting food safety, environmental standards, financial regulation, energy and climate policy, or establishing new powers for corporations.”

Only one member of the Outlaw Congress read all 28,000 pages of the WTO/GATT nightmare, former Senator Hank Brown [R-UT] who refused to vote for it. He left after one term. Not one member of the Outlaw Congress including favorites like Steve King [R-Iowa], Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio nd Mike Lee [R-UT] read the $1.1 TRILLION borrowed dollars, another more debt budget agreement pushed through a few weeks ago. Stealing us blind for hundreds of billions of unconstitutional rape: “All told, the bill would provide $1.012 trillion to the Pentagon and other federal agencies. An additional $92 billion would be set aside for overseas operations, including military activity in Afghanistan and assistance for the growing flow of refugees fleeing the war in Syria. “A bill they didn’t even bother to read.

Now, we have two more “agreements” that will tighten the noose around our necks and the very body who has the authority to pass such agreements aren’t even allowed to know what’s in them except what has been leaked. Who is leading the pack in the GOP to sell us out, again? GOP set to fast-track ‘New World Order’ pact.

NEW YORK – “Republicans in the House are preparing to follow the lead of the White House and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to rubber-stamp the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, the most sweeping free-trade agreement since NAFTA.

“The White House seeks to pass it with a simple majority vote, without so much as introducing a single amendment to modify the language of the agreement it has negotiated behind closed doors. On Jan. 9, 2013, in a little-noticed press release, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., together with ranking member Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich, announced they were introducing “fast track” trade promotion authority legislation as a prelude to bringing up the TPP for expected passage in the near future.

“With House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, already deciding to vote with Senate Democrats to grant fast track authority for congressional consideration of the TPP, the only remaining opposition to the bill seems to be coming from House Democrats.”

That sleeze ball does have challengers against him in the upcoming primary. But, the party machine will throw all their money and support to reelect Johnny. Because, after all, John Boehner serves his global masters, not the people of his district for the past 23 years. However, there is a tea party candidate who could beat him IF the people in his district get out the vote to toss Boehner out on his butt. If Boehner allegedly wins, the alleged loser closest to his vote total must demand a full hand recount and cross check the voting rolls. Otherwise, Boehner will walk right back to Congress to continue defecating on the Constitutution and selling us out to the global elite.

Please, take the time today to write a short letter – no email – and send it to the district office (where the votes are; DC is where the lobbyists operate) for your U.S. House member and Senator and tell them: NO on the TPP and TAFTA. Remind them the primaries are looming. Stop killing more jobs and destroying our sovereignty.

Also, if you haven’t written a snail mail letter to the district office to the thief who represents you in the U.S. House, please do it. NO amnesty in any form for liars, cheats and thieves; illegal aliens. Deport not reward.. This is urgent; see bullet points at the bottom of my recent column.

Please continue buying Made in America; see huge list here. We can create a job boom simply by purchasing Made in the USA. Support American workers because those paychecks benefit local businesses. I am not against fair trade, but prior to NAFTA 97% of all shoes were made here by American workers. Today it’s less than 3%; all those good paying, permanent full time jobs gone to COMMUNIST China and countries like Brazil. Our textile industry the same; destroyed. Our steel industry the same; destroyed. Nearly 10 MILLION full time career long jobs gone. We can turn this around and slowly are, but it takes being committed to saving America, not supporting anti-American corporations who don’t give a tinker’s damn about you and your family, just your money.

Do you have time today or even tomorrow night to save your country? To write a couple of snail mail letters? If we do nothing, nothing gets done. Those bandits in the Outlaw Congress need to have thousands, tens of thousands of hard copy letters flooding their district offices. Please share this information with your social networking sites and through the grapevine, if you will. Networking works.

SDRs AND THE NEW BRETTON WOODS PART ONE

01/25/2014

http://philosophyofmetrics.com/2014/01/21/sdrs-and-the-new-bretton-woods-part-one/

BRICS Inject Capital into I.M.F. Basket of Currencies

By JC Collins

 In my previous post I briefly explained how China was in the process of assuming the liabilities of the Federal Reserve, in addition to their already held liabilities of the U.S. Treasury.  Such a strong statement will require even stronger evidence.  This I will attempt to achieve over this multi-part essay. 

1-25-2014 11-13-26 AM“The legislative process is underway right now. We want the reforms to be adopted expeditiously. It’s really the U.S. Treasury, Jack Lew and his team that’s taking the lead on getting these measures through the U.S. Congress that are required to implement the 2010 reforms.”

“Just to remind you what those are, the 2010 reforms do a couple things. One, they bring four dynamic emerging market countries into the top 10 shareholder ranks or what we call quota ranks of the institution. China, Brazil, Russia, India. It also doubles our permanent capital, the quota. And it also creates a fully elected Executive Board.” 

                          – William Murray, I.M.F. Deputy Spokesman, Jan 9, 2014.

“The IMF is explicit in its antidemocratic leanings, what it calls “political considerations”.  The SDR blueprint calls for the appointment of “an advisory board of eminent experts” to provide direction on the amount of money printing in the new SDR system.  Perhaps these “eminent experts” would be selected from among the same economists and central bankers who led the international monetary system to the brink of destruction in 2008.”

James Rickards, Currency Wars, Penguin Group, 2011

G. Edward Griffin’s mind altering “The Creature from Jekyll Island” introduced many of us to the somewhat hidden history of the U.S. Federal Reserve.  It told of how the Federal Reserve Act was passed in Congress during the Christmas break in the year 1913.  It was insidious.  And it changed the course of human history, as it planted the seed of what would slowly grow to become the world’s reserve currency.

Though the U.S. dollar didn’t become the official reserve currency until the Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944, it is commonly accepted that the dollar had already usurped the British pound of this title well before it was officially acknowledged. As I believe the U.S. dollar has now already been usurped by another.  We’ll get back to that in a while.

There was another event which took place in the year 1913 which has been little understood or known at all in the western world today.  After the collapse of the Manchu Dynasty in 1911, the remaining Government of the Chinese Republic issued bonds to foreign investors for the purpose of raising capital to rebuild the country.  These bonds were titled the 1913 Chinese Government 5% Reorganization Gold Loan.  Emphasis on the word gold for later reference.

These bonds were pegged to the price of gold as a hedge against future inflation and were denominated in four currencies.  The underwriting banks for the bonds reflect the four currencies which the bonds were interchangeable with at the time, which are now known as HSBC, Deutsche Bank, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, and Caylon – Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank.

Keep in mind that these bonds were issued in the same context as the U.S. Treasury Bonds which the world’s central banks have been gobbling up since 1944. These bonds had a yield.  These bonds have never fully been acknowledged by the Chinese government.  As a part of the deal with the British government for the return of Hong Kong, the People’s Republic of China did honor 10% of the outstanding bonds at about 62% of the face value.  And what I can say at this time is that there is in fact a deal in the works for a final payout on the remaining bonds.  We’ll get back to that in a while.

1-25-2014 11-18-28 AMIn 1944, as a part of the Bretton Woods system, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank were created.  These were western dominated institutions whose sole purpose was organizing foreign markets for the acceptance of U.S. dollars.  We will leave the full explanation of these institutions and their role in structuring our current debt based system for another essay series, but for our purposes here, it’s important to understand that they propagated the exporting of dollar inflation to what we now call the “emerging markets”, or the BRICS countries.

Since the initial printing of the Federal Reserve Note (U.S. dollar) in 1913, the “dollar” has lost 95% of its value.  We see this devaluation of the dollar as inflation, or the increase of costs for items we buy.  This devaluation of the dollar has had a few milestones.  One is after the Bretton Woods Agreement when the dollar became the primary reserve currency of the world.  The second came when President Richard Nixon uncoupled the dollar from its peg with gold.  This was in 1971.  A third milestone can be argued to be in 1973, when the so called “petrodollar” was created with agreements between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, and later all the OPEC countries.  This “petrodollar” scheme ensured that all oil trades were completed internationally in U.S. dollars.  This was a slight-of-hand from the Bretton Woods arrangement to the “petrodollar” arrangement.

A fourth milestone was obviously the onset of Quantitative Easing after the financial crisis of 2008.  The chart below clearly shows how with each milestone the amount of debt (money printing) by the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve tag team has been multiplied dramatically leading to inflation.  This is shown by an increase in the red line, which represents CPI – Consumer Price Index, the amount you pay for stuff.

1-25-2014 11-23-22 AMThe only end to this pattern is an end to the dollar as the world’s primary reserve currency.  Just like the British pound before it.  In the chart below you’ll notice the same gradual downward pattern as the U.S. dollar.

1-25-2014 11-24-04 AM

The central banks of the world were buying up U.S. treasuries before the British even accepted that there was a problem with the pound.  The same is happening today with the dollar.  In fact, most of the world outside the United States has already accepted the demise of the dollar as fact.  But the idea is unfathomable to the average American.

The International Monetary Fund issues a currency called SDR – Special Drawing Rights.  The SDR’s are valued on a basket of currencies.  In essence, it’s a true to life multiply reserve currency system.  It has been slowly built up since the early 1970’s, at the same time the U.S. dollar started its serious devaluation.  Could the plan have been in place since 1971 to end the dollar system through hyperinflation before implementing the SDR as a true world currency?  Perhaps.

On January 9, 2014, I.M.F. Deputy Spokesman William Murray was giving a press briefing.  With zero coverage of this briefing in the western media, it’s important to relay what happened when the questioned was asked about the implementation of the 2010 Code of Reforms, or Governance Reforms.  Mr. Murray answered by stating:

“The legislative process is underway right now. We want the reforms to be adopted expeditiously. It’s really the U.S. Treasury, Jack Lew and his team that’s taking the lead on getting these measures through the U.S. Congress that are required to implement the 2010 reforms.”

It seems both the U.S. Treasury and the I.M.F. are very anxious about these reforms.  So what are they?

“Just to remind you what those are, the 2010 reforms do a couple things. One, they bring four dynamic emerging market countries into the top 10 shareholder ranks or what we call quota ranks of the institution. China, Brazil, Russia, India. It also doubles our permanent capital, the quota. And it also creates a fully elected Executive Board.” 

This tells us a few important things.  One, the influence of the BRICS countries within the structure of the I.M.F. is going to be greatly expanded.  As stated, they will be in the top 10 shareholder ranks.  These are positions previously dominated by western financial and U.S. dollar interests.  The gravity of this statement cannot be understated.

Second, it’s telling us that the BRICS countries are bringing capital with them.  Enough capital in fact, to double what the I.M.F. presently holds on reserve.  The BRICS countries will be injecting a huge amount of capital into the SDR system.  One only has to research the amount of gold being exported to the BRICS countries, especially China, to understand where this capital, or worth, will come from.  We’ll get back to that in a while.

Thirdly, expanding the influence of the BRICS countries within the structure of the I.M.F. also “creates a fully elected Executive Board”.  The Executive Board of the I.M.F. is responsible for SDR allocation.  Let that sink in for a moment.  The BRICS countries are going to have an equal say on SDR allocation.  The SDR is being built up as the world’s reserve currency.  The value of the SDR will be based on a basket of currencies.  And the U.S. Treasury is pushing congress to make this happen.

On August 5, 2013, the Peoples Bank of China called for a “New Bretton Woods” system where the U.S. dollar would be removed as the world’s primary reserve currency.  It also called for an expanded usage of the SDR and for the new system to be supported by gold.

In Part Two, we will explore how the U.S. debt, being the liabilities of both the Treasury and the Federal Reserve, will be consolidated with the treasury bonds held by China and rolled into the new SDR system.        – JC Collins

THE SOLUTION TO OUR OUT OF CONTROL POLICE?

01/24/2014

http://www.copblock.org/45050/the-solution-to-our-out-of-control-police/

1-24-2014 7-49-07 AM

Cole Kruper shared this post, originally published at NewsInGeneral.com, via CopBlock.org’s submit page.

Protecting and serving: words of the past, it seems. Today, the Police are more about terrorizing, bullying and killing for no reason. The Police of Canada and the United States are out of control. The same applies for much of the world. Yes, I understand there are still good cops out there, and I admit that quite often. There are still good cops out there, doing their job; protecting and serving every day. But it seems as if the bad cops out number the good cops these days. The biggest problem is, no one’s doing anything about it, as in our wonderful government.

Over the past few months, I’ve reported on many police related stories – stories such as Police shooting a mentally ill man because he was standing still, police terrorizing a family over an orange cone on the road, the militarization of America’s Police, tasing a man for 42 seconds straight, and many other stories. In the case of the mentally ill man, the Police tried to justify their actions by falsely reporting what had happened, and the officer would have gotten away with senselessly shooting the man if it weren’t for a neighbor’s security camera. It’s a story that’s really struck a note with me. I haven’t forgotten it, and it’s a prime example of how the Police are out of control. Although the officer in that particular case was exposed as lying scum, how many times has it gone unnoticed? How many have been injured or killed for no reason at the hands of Police?

If you don’t think we have a problem with Police in both of these great nations, there is something seriously wrong with you. Do the research. The Police have seemingly abandoned the ideal of protecting and serving for beating the shit out of you, killing, lying and so on. Maybe the new motto ought to be “protecting and serving the shit out of you.”

Solving the Police misconduct problem is simple. Many of these people are power hungry individuals who get off on having too much power, which leads into them abusing the powers they get when they become a Police officer. Simply weed out these people in the recruiting process. Don’t just tell us you do it, actually do it. And if Police forces are already doing it, step it up a bit – it’s obviously not working very well. Oh, and if they get past all of that, when they do something completely out of line, don’t let them come back to the job.

Secondly, there needs to be real accountability. In a lot of these lawsuits against Police, guess who ends up paying the price for them? The good old tax payers. I guarantee there would be a lot less Police misconduct if Police officers had to face real consequences and had to pay large fines.

Someone needs to Police the Police. Chances are, you may think having another government organization watch over them is a wonderful idea. WRONG! Having government watch over government has obvious issues. The people need to keep an eye on the Police, and let their superiors know about misconduct. Got video of Police misconduct? Post it. Share it with the world. Do whatever possible to get the word out about your experience with Police misconduct. Video evidence is key to exposing Police misconduct. Let local government know, because we still have some power in government, but we have to utilize it! Yes, I know this already occurs, but it needs to happen on a much larger scale. Most of us don’t have the time to do it, but we need to make the time to do it. The Police work for the people in the end, so maybe it’s time the people kept a closer eye on them, instead of brushing off stories of Police misconduct.

Third of all, STOP GIVING THEM MORE POWER! The militarization of Police has to stop. Giving an out of control system more power has so much potential to be a disaster. Yes, in rare cases it could help, but most of this military equipment doesn’t belong in the hands of Police, who are already known to abuse their powers. If it was made for a war, it doesn’t belong on any street in Canada or the United States. Do either countries look like war zones? No, so there shouldn’t be military equipment on the streets. Even the “wonderful” Obama said “weapons of war have no place on our streets.” Now, Obama should step up to the plate, and end the government program that allows the military to give equipment to Police departments in the US. Obama ought to stick to his word, although he seems to have a tough time doing that.

Here’s a statistic that should get you thinking: 4489 soldiers have been killed in the Iraq war. The number of Americans killed by Police in the last decade is over 5000. Those should be some startling numbers for you. Oh, and the terrorists that the government is always telling us are so dangerous have killed 238 Americans since the 9/11 attacks. So, let’s get this straight. You are more likely to be killed by Police, than terrorists. The number killed in the Iraq war is lower than the number killed by Police in the last decade. Sound like something might be wrong yet?

The way I see things, we have a huge problem. The Police are out of control, they do what they want, and get away with too much. A badge and a gun seems to give them way too much power. Things must change! Some may disagree with me, criticize me for my views, but what I discussed above is the way I see things. My solutions may not completely solve the problem, but I believe they could create a huge dent in the problem. It would be a huge step in the right direction. What ever happened to “protecting and serving?”

And to all the good cops out there, thank you. We need more like you.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

For you air heads that support this kind of action by brutes in uniform, please get your head out of the hole you buried it in. It has been a tradition to revere the police in America as far back as I can remember, but that does not means we should condone the present situation. This is without any doubt the results of a rogue government tyrannizing the public and brain washing us to accept it. Oh well! What can we do? B.S. We can remind the men in charge, they serve at our discretion, and we will initiate a petition drive to replace them. DO NOT LET THE COPS INTIMIDATE YOU, THIS COUNTRY IS RUN BY THE PEOPLE. AND YOU SO CALLED GOOD COPS ARE NOT GOOD COPS AS LONG AS YOU PERMIT THIS KIND OF TYRANNY! DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! YOU TAKE OUR MONEY, NOW EARN IT.

What 2014 Holds in Store for Us

01/23/2014

http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/01/karen-kwiatkowski/uh-oh-7/

By Karen Kwiatkowski

2013 is over, and I’m in the large group of people who are sort of glad to see it go.  But in terms of liberty and technology, it was a great year!  2013 was also the year that a vast new majority of Americans turned their back on the overseas military agenda.  We can all agree that we couldn’t care less about building short-lived roads and bridges in Afghanistan when we’ve got roads and bridges to build here for children, our grandchildren and ourselves.

Privately funded and openly discussed technologies – for alternative non-state controlled currency, for communications, for delivery of goods and services, for building anything and everything – debuted in a disordered rambunctious cacophony.  Bitcoin, space rockets, drones, encryption and 3D printing – we had been taught that these categories belong only to state, and never to the people.

Not only are the secrets of space and communications and currency no longer owned by the state, thanks to Ed Snowden and others, even the secrets the bureaucrats thought they owned are no longer secret.

New technologies that integrate information, knowledge, production and manufacture, and transportation abound, and are igniting the engine of capitalism.  Innovation is not only easier and faster than ever, it rules our modern life and economy – even as that same environment of discovery is allowing everyone to reach back into the past, and rediscover the genius of our pioneer forefathers.

This nexus of information and empowerment allows more people than ever before to pursue life, liberty and happiness.  Don’t have a job?  There have never been more ways to serve others, to meet their needs, locally and globally.  Need to learn a new skill or find your talents?  We live in a time where we are all kings of our destinies, and just about any knowledge we seek is available to us with minimal effort.

We are told that there are fewer American adults in the workforce than ever before, and that most are dependent on some kind of government handout.  Certainly, Americans are coping with new realities, and as they cope, they are discovering new-old truths about government and the state.  They are discovering that the words of Aesop “We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office” are undeniably true.

Something seemed to turn in 2013, and it signifies what is coming in 2014 and beyond.  The government has ended the year hated by more average Americans than ever.  If we the people separate ourselves emotionally and psychically from the government leadership and bureaucracy that purports to represent us, then we have declared our independence.  This trend of distrusting the government comes and goes, but the current situation in the United States is that the government cannot subsist on just the faithful – those who voluntarily pay their taxes, who consume because the president asks us to, who trust the Homeland Stasi, and call the police confident that they and their children will not be assaulted or shot by them in the process of being “helped.”

We know this is happening, in part because the polls tell us.   We don’t think the government should be in the healthcare business.  We are sick and tired of politicians in general.  We are tired of the horrendous and stupid tax burden the working poor and middle class are paying, and we increasingly understand that Washington, D.C. doesn’t really get the rest of the country.  There is a new kind of anti-urbanism in play, a new perception of large cities not as centers of culture and opportunity, but as sources of conflict, targets of violence, and founts of future refugees when faucets run dry and supermarket shelves go unfilled.

Across the world and time, history is made when subtle conflict between urban and rural grows political, and heats up.  Revolutions and secessions blossom and bloom, and empires rapidly corrode along these lines.   How can we know how close we are to this kind of breakdown of the state?   One way is to examine the fearful and panicked reaction of bureaucrats and politicians to what is evolving.  Private market-driven electronic currency, privately owned drones and privately “printed” handguns, popular and available encryption of our petty communications, all of these emerging and liberating technologies are being at once seized upon by the state, and quickly restricted to the common citizen.

The FAA has said that drones cannot be used for media and news gathering.   At least not yet.  Meanwhile, the information-gathering the state does on each of us is growing by leaps and bounds and nothing, least of which the Constitution, seems to be able to stop it.  John Whitehead sums up the ten ways we live each and every day in a US Government-run electronic concentration camp.  And we seem to be tolerating not only the concentration camp but we stand by as the government attempts to restrict our own access to many of the same technologies they use to enslave and monitor us.

There is a line of reasoning that says statism is always reversible, if only because statism over time becomes economically unsupportable.  Unfortunately, the cheapness of technologies for information gathering and control can prolong the inevitable collapse of statism under its own dead weight.  In a sense, the very success of innovation and capitalism can sustain the life of the government beast and secure it, for a lot longer than we the people can actually tolerate it.

I think 2014 will be the year we can go beyond the theory about what state interference in our lives we will or won’t tolerate, and start practically opposing it.   Many young people and others are refusing to participate not just in Obamacare, but in any and every manner of government assaults on their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.  Each and every one of us who moves towards greater self and community sufficiency is practically resisting.   Each of us who knows more, and cares more, about our neighbors than we do the pantomimes in the distant capitols is practically resisting.  I think this makes us “the tireless minority” of John Adams that is “keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”  We are all — young and old, rich and poor – capable of this each time we resist the state with moral confidence and firmness of intention.  2014 is our year, and its been a long time coming!
