There is still a lot of things to learn, but you will have a new post tomorrow.
Olddog had endoscopic sinus surgery on Tuesday the 27th and is now making the transition to a new computer, operating system, email client, file system, and much more, so please stand by until this is all working again. I will work hard to get back in operation as soon as possible. Thank you for your patronage, and patience.
Fabian socialist H.G. Wells set the stage for the sci fi deception of the new world order. Unfortunately, we have been programmed and conditioned from the earliest years to not believe in the existence, or even the possibility, of large-scale conspiracies. Students of history learn in introductory courses that there are three views of the philosophy of history. First, the random contingency view in which historical events are merely “one damn thing after another” (as one of my professors so elegantly stated), with no apparent reason or causal significance. Second, the so-called “great man” view, in which key religious and political figures cause certain landmark events with history revolving around these figures, such as a Napoleon or a Caesar. The third and least popular is the providential or conspiratorial view. In this view, history is led along by unseen forces, be they malevolent or beneficent. Humans play their role to be sure, but man is not the autonomous god of his own destiny. He is the actor on a stage in which there is a grand narrative and ultimate reason for every event, even if humans are not always cognizant of those reasons. Coming to see the truth of a worldwide conspiracy that has been especially centralized in the past few centuries in a western, Anglo-global establishment is also not something people prefer to hear. Humans tend to have a normalcy bias and what is called cognitive dissonance.
Cognitive dissonance is the tendency to continue to believe something erroneous in the face of masses of contrary evidence, due to the devastating psychological impact discarding the previous erroneous belief would have. Americans are raised with the narrative of being a nation of independent individualists: the frontier mentality still dominates and is an image is always latent in our culture. This individualistic mentality refuses to consider itself as the victim of any conspiracy: we are too great a nation to be ruled by an evil elite, bent on world depopulation.
After all, Obama is a “liberal” president, isn’t he? “How could there be a massive conspiracy? If there were, they would all be caught! It’s just not possible,” the opponent says. That’s all “black helicopter, tin-foil-hat nonsense.” To those with low education or no critical thinking skills and common sense, it’s evident that none of these objections suffices to demonstrate that the conspiratorial view is false. From the fact that one is a “proud American” or that George Bush claimed to be a Christian, it does not follow that the conspiratorial view is false. This is called, in logic, a non sequitur. The conclusion does not logically follow from the premises.
New World Order Defined
First, one should get clear on defining terms. What is meant by “New World Order”? The New World Order (from here on NWO) is a global crime syndicate of elite bankers, CEOs, politicians, academics, media moguls, military executives and religious heads, that operate on the one hand in the public purview promoting a stated policy, while simultaneously working underhanded in clandestine societies to set an alternate world policy.
These elites ultimately believe they are superior to the masses chiefly due to their willingness to kill on a mass scale for population control. There are different degrees of initiates and levels of knowledge, but the central ideology of the NWO is Fabian socialist technocracy and eugenics. Most NWO operatives are compartmentalized, presuming their own personal role in banking or media is the highest level.
Western elite funded communism and socialism are the phony revolutionary ideas behind the corporate new world order.
For example, many members of the Bilderberg Group or the Council on Foreign Relations believe they are at the highest levels of control and work with the presupposition they are benefiting humanity.Few are likely aware of occult elites even above them. This is not to say Bilderbergers and CFR members are not “architects” of global power structures, but merely that they are not the highest level. These elites believe themselves to be chosen to rule over the masses, which they see as mere cattle. Being dumb livestock, the cattle of the masses are entirely expendable: they may be utilized as cannon fodder in war where trillions are made by private bankers loaning to governments at astounding interest rates. Or, they can be depopulated as the phony Global Warming “crisis” necessitates.
The Final Goal of the NWO
The ultimate goal of the NWO elites is a socialistic, one world order dictatorship, modeled after Orwell’s 1984, who was himself an intimate insider to this plan. Also influential is Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, which highlights the mass drugging of the populace through pharmacological control. Nazi Germany and Bolshevik Russia were both key models and test grounds established by and for the NWO, and give an insight into the future ideological terminus.
That final goal is total control and total enslavement through control of religion, ideology, population, economics and technology. In order to achieve this, all national sovereignties must be dissolved and amalgamated through staged revolutions into various continental unions, such as has already been achieved with the European Union. The problem with immigration in America, for example, is that it is itself part of the plan of the globalists to break down the borders in order to create a Pan-American Union that will eventually be merged into the European Union. African and Asian Unions then follow, likely being submerged into an eventual World Federation, probably to be overseen by the United Nations. Hard evidence of this can be seen in David Rockefeller’s United Nations lectures shown on C-SPAN.
In order to understand how the so-called elites achieved what they have thus far, it’s important to look at the history of this amorphous group. Ultimately, the battle between good and evil could be traced back to the beginning of time and the fall of man, but for convenience sake, we will focus on the modern era. Dr. Quigley’s famous “Tragedy and Hope” chronicles the Anglo establishment’s plans for world hegemony and casts it in a deceptive, “liberal,” positive light.
As the Middle Ages gave way to the era of modernity through the new science of Bacon, Galileo and Newton, a paradigm shift in the view of the world took place: no longer was the world governed by God through His Church and the earthly hierarchy of the monarchy. Instead, the world began to be viewed as a treasure house of latent natural forces to be harnessed by man. Man would eventually achieve total understanding of the universe and ascend to godhood in this new view. “Science” became the new mythos: the new, all-encompassing narrative which could explain man’s great ascent towards divinity. In fact, Bacon and Newton were themselves practitioners of hermetic occultism. These are odd interests for those men simultaneously seeking to de-mythologize the world of “religious superstition.” The science myth was a facade, since they were, as Frances Yates’ classic book The Rosicrucian Enlightenmentdemonstrates, practitioners of magic.
The new “science” gave birth to the Enlightenment: a socio-cultural revolution that sought to remake the social order on the foundation of flux, progress and “reason,” as opposed to theology and metaphysics. Also roughly concurrent with this phenomenon was the Protestant Reformation, which would challenge the established authority of a single Church; an authority that had been the dominant force in Eastern and Western Europe for over a thousand years. The Reformers themselves sought to remove from religion what they perceived to be superstitions and to place religious authority in the hands of “every ploughboy,” as Luther said, who could then reconstruct it as he pleased. Ultimately, the enlightened Reformation ended in pure rationalism, and out of Germany came the infamous schools of Higher Criticism that would deny the biblical texts and ultimately dismiss any supernatural element in theology, whatsoever.
A new world was emerging from the ashes of the old. These events were no mere accident. In fact, the Enlightenment and Reformation not only gave rise to intellectual and theological shifts in thinking, but also to civil revolution. The most notable of these was the French Revolution, which sought to destroy Christianity in France, behead the monarchy, and establish an enlightened, secular, Illuminist, communist republic. The death of thousands of innocents resulted. French Revolutionary demagogues, such as Danton, Robespierre, the Duke of Orleans, Marat, and St. Just, were all members of secret societies and Illuminist orders. Many communists leaders such as Vladimir Lenin were also “Illuminists.” The question then arises: why would communists and bourgeoisie leaders of the French Revolution both be members of the same secret revolutionary groups? Aren’t the stated goals radically different?
The answer to this will be taken up later. Through infiltrating Freemasonry, many of these bloody men were also inducted into a deeper, darker society within the ranks known as the Illuminati. The Illuminati had been formed in 1776 by an ex-Jesuit canon lawyer named Adam Weishaupt, in Bavaria. Weishaupt, who was immersed in rationalism, intended to organize an elite group that would eventually install a one-world, socialistic order and abolish theology. Weishaupt seems to have been the key ideological figure behind the revolutions of the 18th and 19th centuries that ultimately removed all forms of monarchy and effectively cut off Christianity from having any cultural influence. Weishaupt, it is reported, received funding for this project from secret banking and nobility sects that wanted to destroy and rebuilf society.
The western banking establishment took over the entirety of Europe with a simple but astounding goal: lend money to European heads of state at a high level interest for the purposes of war, and thereby bring the governments under the control of a private bank. The most successful of these was Nathan Rothschild, who made an unbelievable fortune lending to both Napoleon and the British. When Napoleon was defeated, Nathan conned the British Parliament into setting up a centrally owned private bank under the guise of economic stability. This private bank, however, would be backed by private fortune, and the money system would eventually be a purely fiat currency. This meant that the money is not backed by gold, but by fiat credit. Bankers, in turn, would charge the government interest on the money they had printed out of thin air. It is by these means that they would eventually succeed in bringing all of Europe into a Union with a single fiat currency under a privately owned central bank in Germany.
This is the present status of the European Union. The same banking scam was executed in America through the Rockefeller and Morgan Trusts that manipulated US Congress to pass the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The Federal Reserve Act placed America’s economy in the hands of the European bankers and the Rockefeller-Morgan-British banking dynasty. Cecil Rhodes, the diamond tycoon of Africa, was also funded by the same interests, and after amassing a fortune, established a secret society known as the Round Table Group in the early 20th century. From this British Round Table and Royal Society group the offshoot American Council on Foreign Relations was formed, along with the international version, known as the Trilateral Commission.
These entities in turn set up the OSS/CIA and The group within these is known as the Bilderbergers, as mentioned above, which holds its annual meetings at secretive locations worldwide, where national and corporate policies are set. The openly stated goal of these groups is a one world government and a one world monetary system. This is achieved economically through the privately owned central banks, which print the fiat currency and charge the various governments interest. This is, by the way, why we have heard for so many decades that our national debt is trillions of dollars.
The debt is interest owed on money printed out of thin air: owed to international bankers who conned the U.S. into giving them the power to control the money supply: that’s why this is a conspiracy. I have even spoken to professors with Ph.D.s in economics at universities that admit most nations are now on a fiat money system owned by private banks. To these institutionalized professors, this is no problem, since many of them are partial to the idea of globalism and world government. They are willing dupes, who believe that the system that abuses them will save them. Now that we have seen the history of the New World Order cabal and its monetarist path to total control of nation-states, it is vital to see the methods they use to gain and increase their control.
Before we do that, we must put a face on the front groups the NWO operates behind. Many of these men are members of local churches, including respected priests, pastors, ministers and deacons. Many U.S. presidents, senators, congressmen, businessmen and philanthropists have been and are members of this group. These well-meaning men are serving higher interests that seek the dark goals those under them are unaware of. Modern masonry derives from the Western European Medieval stonemason guilds that banded together to build the cathedrals of the bishops and palaces of the kings.
As cathedral building waned and as the Enlightenment and reformation swept Europe, practitioners of the occult sought underground meetings where they could conspire without the threat of the Catholic Church and crowns that still existed. They found what they needed in the society of freemasons: these new, philosophical masons were called “speculative masons.” By the 18th century there were some 5,000 plus lodges established in Europe. Many lesser lords and heads of state and members of the clergy, both Protestant and Catholic had, in fact, already joined the fraternity. As mentioned above, masonry was intimately intertwined with the Illuminati by the end of the 18th century through the extreme rationalist efforts of Weishaupt.
Not being privy to pre-modern thinking, most of us don’t really understand the importance of bloodlines in the ancient world. The ancient world was essentially a caste system, and many societies today, such as India still operate in this fashion. Unless one is of a royal lineage of bloodline, one must accept a certain position within the strata of society. Modernity is supposed to be egalitarian, but the class distinctions have merely been reorganized from lines of royalty to lines of wealth.
The Bible itself is concerned with bloodlines, since Jesus Christ is the promised seed, descended from Adam through Noah through Abraham through King David and his Mother from whom the Church professed He derived his humanity. For the ancient world, bloodlines were thus everything. This is important, because the occult philosophy of the modern so-called rationalists still adhere to this ancient principle. For the NWO occultists, there is “power in the blood,” as much as for the Christian, by which they mean magic power. Thus, the top dynasty-families that run the world, like the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Morgans, Warburgs, etc., like the ancient royalties, all believe they must inter-marry in order to maintain bloodline purity. Dan Brown’s silly DaVinci Code is a perfect example: while the book is certainly false, it evidences the occult world’s obsession with maintaining magical purity inherent in the family bloodlines.
In fact, some of these occultists believe themselves to be descendants of gods: an example of this is the Satanic philosophy of Nazism, by which Heinrich Himmler, through his SS, sought to breed a pure Aryan bloodline: a bloodline which had the power of the gods of Atlantis running through it, as Peter Levenda’s book Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi Involvement with the Occult shows. It is through the evil philosophy of eugenics, the offspring of Darwinism, that the British elite find a basis for the promotion of the evils of abortion, euthanasia and mass sterilization. Little do most know, it was Margaret Sanger with the help of Catherine Hepburn’s mother that founded Planned Parenthood with Rockefeller money to sell the idea of abortion and contraception, under the guise of women’s rights.
Sanger convinced the NAACP that black women especially should have the right to an abortion, all the while based on Sanger’s socialist eugenics philosophy. One of Darwinism’s biggest proponents was eugenicist Sir Francis Galton, Charles Darwin’s cousin and fellow scientist. What the state universities, all controlled by the elites, don’t tell you is that Galton’s eugenics philosophy, a natural outworking of Darwinism, was profoundly Anglo-racial to the core. Meanwhile, the phony liberal university establishment would have everyone believe that Marxism is glorious, while their own Darwinistic pseudo-religion is actually racialist to the core. It is this occult philosophy of Darwinism masquerading as “science” that the NWO elites are obsessed with, and it is for this reason that aborting of millions of children has become a great sacrifice. It is a Luciferian establishment that runs America.
The Green New Age Movement
It is also important to see that the secret societies predicted the supposed fall of religion. There are many other smaller groups that operate separately, but with the same goals of destroying historic Orthodox religion and installing a global, rationalist, technocratic, socialist Luciferian world order. Many people are unaware that the New Age Movement came straight out of fraudulent occult groups. Madame Blavatsky, a mountebank and premier occultist, coined the term by noting in terms of astrology, the 20th century would witness the transformation from the Age of Pisces, which occultists refer to as the age of Christianity’s dominance, to the Age of Aquarius: the age of the new world order, the cosmic world order, where men would be in contact with the what she termed the “Great White Brotherhood of interstellar entities.” Blavatsky, like all occultists, thought that man was on the path of Darwinian evolution towards godhood, and that these extra-dimensional “entities” were highly advanced beings seeking to bring the human race into the next age of cosmic consciousness. Madame Blavatsky’s aliens, however, were nothing more than fallen angels promulgating the same old lie of Satan in the Garden of Eden that man could eventually become his own god. The Green New Age Movement, however, has not lost any power or influence in the past few years.
The hippie-sexual revolution of the 1960s was a major victory for this movement, bringing Eastern philosophy into the West through Swamis and the Beatles. The United Nations is the primary supporter of New Age techniques, which are promoted in all areas of life in its programs. These programs, like UNESCO, seek to initiate the youth into all forms of paganism and superstition under the guise of “tolerance” and “diversity.” The elite-funded New Age Movement is also responsible for the popularity of feminism and witchcraft. The goal of these groups is the alchemical transformation of mankind into “Adam Kadmon,” an androgynous figure representing the transcending of male and female sexes, resulting in a higher-evolved god-being through technology and transhumanism.
Again, we note the idea of the inexorable process of evolution toward godhood. These superstitious texts teach that through ritual sex, the magician may collect power which he channels to his “higher self,” which, the occultists believe, will give them greater powers as gods when they die and ascend the ridiculous evolutionary chain. These higher selves or true selves are in fact demons that deceive the occultist.
Gnosticism and Crowley
One of the most powerful secret societies of the 20th century was the O.T.O., or Ordo Templi Orientis. This society was headed for a period by the premier occultist of the 20thcentury, Aleister Crowley. Considered a genius, Crowley ascended the ranks of the occult rapidly and became a proponent of ancient gnosticism. The best description for Crowley’s order is that it is a hermetic graduate school. Crowley himself was a 98th and 99th degree Memphis and Mizraim Rites rites which most new agers have never heard of. Crowley’s famous book Magick in Theory and Practice, argues that the key to life and to becoming a magician is bringing about one’s own will in the world: to effect change in the world. Change, however, can be either be good or bad.
Effecting change in the world through imposition of will is not necessarily a good thing. In my analysis, this gnosticism is the key to understanding the recent explosion of pedophilia in modern, post-Vatican II Catholicism. Journalist William Kennedy’s book Lucifer’s Lodge documents the evidence that Luciferians have infiltrated the highest levels of the Catholic establishment, even to the Vatican, seeking to use the Catholic Church as the vehicle for a one world religion of New Age Luciferianism.
Well-known scholar and ex-Jesuit theologian Malachi Martin, a Vatican insider and personal friend of John XXIII and Paul VI, has written numerous books on the status of the Church since Vatican II. It must be noted first of all that there is undeniable and abundant evidence that Martin was himself a Luciferian. In his book The Keys of this Blood on the papacy of John Paul II, Martin mentions the Satanic Black Mass that was celebrated in the Vatican following upon the coronation of Paul VI as pope (page 632). The reason this is important is that he personally knew these popes.
The reason for this is that Luciferians operate on a principle Crowley termed the “revelation of the method.” Because most occultists are gnostic dualists, they believe good and bad are flip sides of the same coin: they are both ultimate and necessary. Thus, there is no reason why one cannot play both sides, so to speak. One may play a conservative, moral individual during the day, while at night participating in the black rites of Luciferianism. In this very important 700 plus page book, Martin discusses the goal of Vatican occultists to control the emerging world order. It is beyond question, he admits, that the apostate Catholic Church, the “anti-church” as he calls it, is the primary vehicle of the United Nations and the Anglo-globalists to bring all religions into a one world religion where Orthodox religion is replaced with pagan and occultic traditions for mass control. This is why the modern Catholic church must be resisted at all costs: if not, it will initiate the world into Luciferianism. Only traditional Orthodoxy is the rallying force strong enough to repel the New World Order.
The United States’ Role
Rallying behind the Constitution and America are useless against the Illuminati, since contrary to what many Americanists say, the country was founded by a conglomeration of Protestant deists influenced by Illuminism and ridiculous revolutionary philosophy. What, then, is America’s role in all this? America’s role seems to be, as one political philosopher noted, the “benign promulgator of world government.” The United States is the power-horse of the elite: it functions as a kind of Big Brother of the nations, cleverly seeking to establish faux “democracy” in petty dictatorships like Iraq that the U.S. itself financed and loaned money to in the 1980s, training Saddam as an ally.
The technological revolution of the genius of America’s best and brightest is the main tool for the endgame of the NWO. The use of the great engine of supercomputers and wireless technology is actually being used for the purpose of setting up a Skynet control grid where world population will be reduced 90% under the phony religion of Green Climate Change and Earth worship. As the masses are dumbed down through the toxic culture, poisoned food and water, they will become dumber and more docile and ultimately sterile. Then, the AI robot super grid will be revealed to stamp out the last vestiges of biological humanity. Without a coherent philosophy and religious faith, mankind will fall susceptible to a great deception of technological utopianism and salvation. This great promise will never be delivered: indeed, the entire Internet and Smart grid revolution is precisely for the purpose of enslaving the masses after a long period of gaining “recon” through tracking and tracing everything on the web since its inception. Without a religious metaphysic, man falls prey to the quantification of all things, irrationally brought under the sway of total mechanical, “rational” enslavement.
The idol that is the work of man’s own hands will be the thing that enslaves him, rather than frees him. The solution to this dilemma is explained well by philosopher Dr. Philip Sherrard HERE. Written by Jay Dyer for Lifting the Veil. Republished March 4, 2014.

$1 Million Bounty to Be Offered for ‘Smoking Gun’ in IRS Targeting Scandal … A nonprofit group hopes to award a $1 million bounty to anyone who can provide “smoking gun” evidence to implicate IRS leadership or members of the Obama administration who purposefully targeted conservative and tea party-affiliated groups, TheBlaze has learned. Gregg Phillips, the managing director for The Voters Trust, a political nonprofit 501 (c)(4) which was established to identify and mobilize Americans, told TheBlaze on Wednesday “that this is the people’s bounty to seek the truth.” Catherine Engelbrecht, president of the nonprofit group True the Vote, will be officially announcing the bounty Wednesday night on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show, “The Kelly File” at 9 p.m. ET. To qualify for the bounty, the person needs to provide “relevant evidence including emails, eye-witness accounts, or testimony of political targeting of Americans by the IRS or the Obama administration that has not previously been reported,” according to an official press release from the group obtained by TheBlaze. – TheBlaze
Dominant Social Theme: The Tea Party is a flash in the pan and the current system is strong enough, honorable enough and decent enough to withstand the attacks now being leveled at it.
Free-Market Analysis: Despite regular efforts to downplay the political change taking place around the US, events like this one – in the excerpt above – show that the sociopolitical fabric itself is being attacked by citizens who for one reason or another have had enough.
They want to open the curtains and peer through at those controlling the levers of a society that increasingly seems out-of-control and authoritarian to them.
Here’s more from the article:
Phillips said the evidence must lead directly to the arrest and conviction those responsible and the information provided will remain anonymous and confidential. “We are going to crowdsource the financing for the bounty,” said Phillips, whose group has been planning the public bounty for months.
“This is about the American people. The days of the big party – Republican, Democrat, Tea Party – are over and everybody has to unite right now… We’re going to unite people around the truth. We’re going to return people to liberty instead of expecting Congress or the Justice Department to investigate these wrong doings.”
The Voters Trust is offering a reward up to $1 million to an IRS insider or other government whistleblower who comes forward with a new, relevant evidence implicating IRS leadership or the Obama Administration in the IRS witch hunt targeting conservatives.
The Voters Trust is a political non-profit (501 (c)(4)) established to identify and mobilize Americans. The Voters Trust provides a community to those who have been silenced and encourages citizens to speak out and take back their government.
The organization’s managing director is Gregg Phillips, founder of super PAC Winning our Future, one of the biggest PACs in the 2012 election cycle. Bounty Graphic courtesy of Voter’s Trust. The Voters Trust is offering a reward up to $1 million to an IRS insider or other government whistleblower who comes forward with a new, relevant evidence implicating IRS leadership or the Obama Administration in the IRS witch hunt targeting conservatives.
… Many of the groups targeted by the IRS believe that the Obama administration is purposefully censuring information that would reveal the true intentions of administration officials. Emails obtained by the government watchdog Judicial Watch, through a Freedom of Information Act request, reveal that the targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups came from the IRS in Washington DC.
The emails and documents also show Sen. Carl Levin’s (D-Mich.) potential involvement in putting pressure on the IRS to investigate conservative tax-exempt organizations. “This is their intent and if we allow it to continue it will fundamentally reshape the citizen’s relationship with the government,” Engelbrecht said. “This bounty is about the people, it’s about the grassroots and the citizenry of our nation and it belongs to all the people. This is our rallying cry for justice.”
Now, what is certainly true when it comes to groups such as the one making this announcement is that they are often partisan in nature and designed to exploit the right/left dialectic that restrains the political dialogue and renders it ultimately ineffective.
But we’ve also pointed out that the information available on the Internet has all but shattered the previous control paradigm that existed in the 20th century.
You see … in order to create and sustain control, the dialectic must be imposed and cultivated. In the 20th century, the dialectic moved only one way, toward further authoritarianism and bigger government.
But in the 21st century, in order to maintain control the dialectic has been pushed back. If the dialectic does not appear to take in the widest possible gamut of citizen opinions, then the dialectic loses value as a controller of the larger conversation. Everything must either appear within the confines of the dialectic or be ostracized as a “conspiracy.”
Today, the dialectic includes secession, radical regulatory rollbacks and even – as in this case – calls to investigate the political process in ways that have not existed before in the modern era. Just yesterday, in fact, the libertarian-oriented socialist Nat Hentoff endorsed the conservative-oriented Rand Paul.
This is a kind of groundbreaker and shows how difficult it is for the power elite to continue to control the dialectic. Freedom is leaking out on both ends. Here, from Hentoff’s editorial:
For me, Paul made real a fantasy I’d long held: that someone running for the presidency, as he clearly is, would focus insistently on what it means under our Constitution to be an American – with basic individual rights and liberties no government has the authority to suspend or erase.
Meanwhile, the key statement in Philips’s announcement above was this: “The days of the big party – Republican, Democrat, Tea Party – are over.”
We’ve often made the point that the Tea Party was quickly co-opted by the same groups that control the Democrats and Republicans. And this is why statements about the “death” of the Tea Party are meaningless. The formal “movement” died a long time ago.
No matter … What we call the Internet Reformation is increasingly regnant and cannot be controlled by 20th century strategies. Regardless of who is really behind Phillips’s organization, the naming of the award is a significant milestone because it shows perhaps for the first time how modest but significant money power is beginning to line up behind viewpoints that do not recognize mainstream politics.
A decade ago we predicted that the mainstream media was a failed “sunk cost” that kept people like Rupert Murdoch up at night – tossing and turning because of the realization that billions and even trillions of dollars had been wasted on what would soon be a useless Big Media infrastructure.
But the metamorphosis is even bigger than that. What we have also predicted is that the same sort of radical undermining is now beginning to infect the rest of the West’s gigantism. Big Finance, Big Politics, even Big Justice are all going to come under significant challenge in the next few years. In fact, it is already happening.
Western governments – especially the US – are arming themselves against this occurrence, but bullets are useless against ideas … and the ideas that we are reporting on are fairly unstoppable until they run their course. And they will not run their course for a while.
This is also why we regularly point out that people have to take care of themselves, because a more tumultuous time is surely going to arrive. Perhaps people want to take advantage of the current Wall Street Party or simply buy gold and silver – or even farmland – to ensure some level of preparedness.
Just as the advent of the Gutenberg press set off convulsive changes, so the Internet Reformation is beginning to change every part of the West’s sociopolitical and economic structure.
These changes are not merely more of the same cycle that has existed for the past several centuries but a substantive break with mainstream constructs. Underestimate them at your peril.
COMMENT BY: FauxScienceSlayer
Politically directed targeting goes far beyond the IRS. At her monthly True the Vote meeting, Sept 2013, Catherine Englebrecht listed the MULTIPLE visits, from MULTIPLE Feral government agencies, including OSHA, BATF, FBI, TCEQ and the IRS. The Englebrecht’s operate a small family machine shop, and their OSHA ‘inspection’ found that their seldom used, second hand forklift did not have the correct driver’s seat belt, and that one machinist was wearing non compliant safety glasses. They were fined $20K, but plead ‘guilty’ to reduce this to a final $17K fine. The Engelbreicht’s had been approached by several local gun shops to perform LEGAL service and customizing work on a few gun parts. Prior to any custom gunsmithing, they contacted the BATF and had all of the paperwork for services that never amounted to over $300 in any year. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is under EPA dictates and was ordered to inspect the machine shop. The IRS audited multiple years and multiple filings. In all there were over a dozen separate ‘investigations’ by the elite directed Feral government.
The legal term for this Feral government behavior is OFFICIAL OPPRESSION. A less courageous American might have buckled under this massive authoritarian intimidation. IF the evidence is provided, and the crowd sourcing is required, PLEASE consider supporting this brave American hero.
On May 7, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) posted a notice on the government’s Federal Business Opportunities site in order to solicit bids on an undisclosed number of submachine guns.
The notice read, in part,
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General, located in Washington, DC, pursuant to the authority of FAR Part 13, has a requirement for the commercial [sic] acquisition of submachine guns, .40 Cal. S&W, ambidextrous safety, semi-automatic or 2 shot burst [sic] trigger group, Tritium night sights for front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore grip) and scope (top rear), stock-collapsible [sic] or folding, magazine – 30 rd. capacity, sling, light weight, and oversized trigger guard for gloved operation.” [Note: spelling errors in original]
Speculation On The Why of Submachine Guns
When President Abraham Lincoln established the USDA in 1862, he called it the “People’s Department.” The USDA website lists its current areas of authority as: Assisting Rural Communities; Conservation; Education and Research; Food and Nutrition; and, Marketing and Trade. The agency has over 100,000 employees. Why do employees of the People’s Department need semi-automatic machine guns to do their job? What would the job description be?
Second Amendment sites have speculated that the most likely recipients are agents of the US Forest Service (USFS) Law Enforcement & Investigations unit; the USFS falls under USDA control.
Although this seems likely, there are also counter-indications. The solicitation notice makes no mention of the USFS, and those agents are already armed. The Wikipedia site on USFS states “Special agents are normally plainclothes officers who carry concealed firearms, and other defensive equipment…” Moreover, the weapon being solicited is typically used for close quarter operations, such as inside a building or into a crowd, rather than in an open or unpopulated area.
Several people have attempted to reach the two “public servants” listed in the notice as USDA contacts for interested weapon companies. Attempts to contact Linda F.B Josey, head of the Procurement Management Branch, reach an auto-reply that states she is “out for training.” Desiree Clayton, the contracting officer, is “not in the office at this time.”
The news site Politico managed to get an answer. Politico reported, “USDA spokeswoman Courtney Rowe says the guns are needed by the more than 100 agents employed by the law-enforcement division of the department’s Office of the Inspector General. They’ve carried machine guns for 20 years, she notes. USDA OIG officers ‘are placed in very dangerous law enforcement situations,” another USDA official told POLITICO. ‘They make arrests, they serve subpoenas and they engage in undercover operations’.” What sort of “very dangerous law enforcement situation” does the USDA confront?
Assuming The USFS Is The Intended Recipient
The USFS is closely allied with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and often provides it with back-up. A key reason is because the two agencies share responsibility for managing an estimated 167 million acres of public rangeland in America, with the USFS presiding over more than half. The BLM recently laid siege to the ranch of Cliven Bundy. A timeline on the Bundy conflict provides insight into the relationship of the two agencies.
In March 1993, the BLM designated hundreds of thousands of acres of federal land in Nevada for conservation efforts and closed it off to livestock grazing. Since the 1930s, federal rangelands in Nevada have been managed primarily by the BLM (or its predecessor) and the USFS. Rancher Cliven Bundy called the BLM move a “land grab.” He claimed Nevada owned the land and he refused to remove his cattle.
In 1995, the USFS was responsible for overseeing 7 million acres in Nevada and became quickly entangled in conflict with ranchers. In April 1995, USA Today reported,
Thursday evening, a small bomb went off in the U.S. Forest Service office in Carson City, Nev….
“If it was sent as a message,” says Forest Service spokeswoman Erin O’Connor, “we got it.” Ultimately the issue will be settled by the courts, but ranchers who say they can’t afford to raise livestock without greater access to public land are taking matters into their own hands — setting up what some officials fear is an inevitable and dangerous confrontation. The situation is becoming so tense that federal workers now travel mostly in pairs and are in constant radio contact with district offices.
“I’m concerned about the safety of my employees,” says Jim Nelson, Forest Service district manager for Nevada. “They can’t go to church in these communities without having someone say something. Their kids are harassed in school. Stores and restaurants are not serving them.”
A year later, more pipe-bombs had exploded in the offices of the USFS and the BLM.
In 2002, another Nevada rancher was found guilty of grazing on federally-claimed land. His sentence affirmed the USFS’s authority over the disputed area.
Skip forward to April 2014. There were a series of conflicts with the Bundys and their supporters on one side, and armed BLM and other agents on the other. A photojournalist described one incident. “We were on a bridge in southern Nevada in the midst of a tense standoff between the BLM and a group of angry ranchers, milita-members [sic] and gun-rights activists. It seemed as if we were a hair’s breadth away from Americans killing Americans right in front of me.” He reported “the man with a rifle beside me….aimed his weapon in the direction of [BLM] officers,” and said “I’ve got a clear shot at four of them.” Ultimately, no shots were fired.
Such stand-offs are undoubtedly among the “very dangerous law enforcement situations” that the USFS anticipates. The agency is hardly alone in stockpiling military weapons and ammunition. Bob Owens at the website Bearing Arms observed, “This is part of a trend to arm every branch of federal government, whether the individual agency has a legitimate need for a paramilitary force or not.”
No agency seems innocuous or too small to avoid becoming paramilitary. On August 13, 2012, the Business Insider reported, “ the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is looking for 46,000 rounds of ammunition for the National Weather Service.”
After all, nothing says “public servant” like an armed enforcement agent who points a gun while checking the level of rainfall. That’s especially true if he packs a submachine gun which ordinary Americans cannot obtain without a Federal Firearms License.

Cecily McMillan is an Occupy protester who was seized from behind by a goon thug cop–a goon thug with a long record of abuse of authority–by her boobs. One was badly bruised. Cecily McMillan’s elbow reflexively and instinctively came up, and Cecily was arrested for assaulting a goon thug. The goon thug was not arrested for sexually assaulting a young woman.
False arrests of this sort are common in the US. Indeed, they are more common than justified arrests. The police and the courts are completely corrupted institutions that reek of injustice and evil.
Cecily was locked up in Rikers Island without bail by the judge who sees his role as protecting the abuse of police and prosecutorial power. The judge would not allow evidence in behalf of Cecily to be presented to the jury.
Nevertheless, the jurors, or 75% of them, understood that something was wrong and although they were coerced into convicting the young woman they sent a letter to the judge requesting that no prison time be imposed on Cecily. Nevertheless, the judge for whom all must stand in respect in the courtroom, gave the goon thug’s victim 90 days in prison and 5 years probation. This was Amerika’s sendoff of an idealistic young woman who was about to receive a master’s degree from an important educational education.
I have been concerned as a main focus of my work since the 1990s with American injustice. America’s injustice is a unique kind. American injustice has actually managed to completely destroy the achievements dating from Magna Carta that made law a shield of the people instead of a weapon in the hands of the state. Today America is pre-Magna Carta England.
My concern with the destruction of Justice in America was shared by my colleague, Lawrence Stratton. Together in 2000 we produced a book documenting the destruction of the achievement of liberty and the accountability of government to law under the publisher’s title of “The Tyranny of Good Intentions” (our title was, “How The Law Was Lost”). In 2008 a new edition was published.
The book was cited a few times by federal district court judges but had no influence on law schools’ worship of unaccountable executive power or on the appointment of Justice (sic) Department flunkies such as John Yoo and David Barron to prominent University law schools and federal courts. Yoo and Barron are the tyrants who justified in US Justice Department memos torture, despite US and international laws against it, and the murder of US citizens on suspicion alone without due process of law, an obvious violation of the US Constitution.
Judging from the legal arena’s response to our work, justice is no longer the purpose of US law and it is no longer thought necessary for the US government to be accountable to law. To insouciant Americans these might seem like extreme statements, but the conclusion is unavoidable.
In the United States there is no longer law. There is only retribution. Cecily McMillan by her non-violent protest against the looting of America and the world by Wall Street became “an enemy of the people.” The “people,” of course, are the one percent. The 99 percent do not count.
The jury in Cecily’s trial did not count. At least 75% of the jurors understood that they were being coerced into a conviction, which they sought to lighten by requesting the judge not to impose a prison sentence. But the judge represents the repressive state, not justice. The jurors were out to lunch. They had no idea of the corrupt nature of the criminal political system or else they lacked the courage to stand up to it.
This insouciance is true of the bulk of the American population. They are sheeple, unaware that they have been stripped of constitutional protections and that they are propagandized into supporting the evil actions of an unaccountable government. For example, as Gerald Celente demonstrates in the current issue of the Trends Journal, the onslaught of Washington’s propaganda against the Sochi Olympic Games, alleging terror attacks, a filthy city and hotel rooms, unsafe water, and so forth, resulted in a drop in TV ratings for the Olympics and in majorities of Americans acquiring negative attitudes toward Russia and Putin. Thus, when Washington set off the Ukraine crisis, “American minds had already been pre-programmed by propaganda. Facts would not get in the way. The stage for war and hate had been masterfully set.”
As John Whitehead at the Rutherford Institute says,
“If you have been paying attention to the news lately, you may have noticed that the building blocks for a police state are now in place: the surveillance networks, fusion centers and government contractors monitoring what is being said by whom; government databases tracking who poses a potential threat to the government’s power; militarized police, working in conjunction with federal agencies, coordinating with the federal government to round up troublemakers; and the courts which sanction the government’s methods, no matter how unlawful. “Indeed, the government has been maintaining a growing list of ‘dangerous’ opinions and activities that might classify someone as an enemy of the state — a.k.a. an extremist — a.k.a. terrorist or sympathetic to terrorist activities — and thus qualify you for detention.
“Included in that list of ‘dangerous’ viewpoints are advocating for states’ rights, believing the government to be unnecessary or undesirable, ‘conspiracy theorizing’ (this applies to those who believe 9/11 might have been an inside job), concern about the government’s efforts to build domestic internment camps, opposition to war, organizing for ‘economic justice,’ frustration with ‘mainstream ideologies,’ opposition to abortion, opposition to globalization, and ammunition stockpiling. “As you can see, anyone seen as opposing the government—whether they’re Left, Right or somewhere in between—is a target.”
When a sexually assaulted American citizen can be falsely arrested for assaulting a police officer, brought to trial by a corrupt prosecutor whose false case is endorsed by a corrupt judge and convicted by an insouciant jury, you know that justice is dead in America.
The death of Justice is a huge problem. The US not only has the largest percentage of its population in prison of every country in the world, the US also has the largest absolute number of prison inmates, larger even than “authoritarian” China which has a population four times larger than the US. In China, despite Washington’s endless lies about “human rights abuses,” a citizen has a far lower chance of imprisonment than does a “freedom and democracy” American.
Chris Hedges and Cecily McMillan bring the story home. If you read their account below and do not weep, you are a brainwashed sheeple headed for the slaughter.
May 19, 2014: “Truth Dig” – RIKERS ISLAND, N.Y.—Cecily McMillan, the Occupy activist who on Monday morning will appear before a criminal court in New York City to be sentenced to up to seven years on a charge of assaulting a police officer, sat in a plastic chair wearing a baggy, oversized gray jumpsuit, cheap brown plastic sandals and horn-rim glasses. Other women, also dressed in prison-issued gray jumpsuits, sat nearby in the narrow, concrete-walled visitation room clutching their children, tears streaming down their faces. The children, bewildered, had their arms wrapped tightly around their mothers’ necks. It looked like the disaster scene it was.
“It’s all out in the open here,” said the 25-year-old student, who was to have graduated May 22 with a master’s degree from The New School of Social Research in New York City. “The cruelty of power can’t hide like it does on the outside. You get America, everything America has become, especially for poor people of color in prison. My lawyers think I will get two years. But two years is nothing compared to what these women, who never went to trial, never had the possibility of a trial with adequate legal representation, face. There are women in my dorm who, because they have such a poor command of English, do not even understand their charges. I spent a lot of time trying to explain the charges to them.”
McMillan says Grantley Bovell, who was in plainclothes and did not identify himself as a police officer, grabbed her from behind during a March 17, 2012, gathering of several hundred Occupy activists in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park. In a video of the incident she appears to have instinctively elbowed him in the face, but she says she has no memory of what happened. Video and photographs—mostly not permitted by the trial judge to be shown in the courtroom—buttressed her version of events. There is no dispute that she was severely beaten by police and taken from the park to a hospital where she was handcuffed to a bed. On May 5 she was found guilty after a three-week trial of a felony assault in the second degree. She can receive anything from probation to seven years in prison.
“I am prepared mentally for a long sentence,” she told me this past weekend when I interviewed her at the Rikers Island prison in the Bronx. “I watched the trial. I watched the judge. This was never about justice. Just as it is not about justice for these other women. One mother was put in here for shoplifting after she lost her job and her house and needed to feed her children. There is another prisoner, a preschool teacher with a 1-year-old son she was breastfeeding, who let her cousin stay with her after her cousin was evicted. It turns out the cousin sold drugs. The cops found money, not drugs, that the cousin kept in the house and took the mother. They told her to leave her child with the neighbors. There is story after story in here like this. It wakes you up.”
McMillan’s case is emblematic of the nationwide judicial persecution of activists, a persecution familiar to poor people of color. Her case stands in contrast with the blanket impunity given to the criminals of Wall Street. Some 8,000 nonviolent Occupy protesters have been arrested. Not one banker or investor has gone to jail for causing the 2008 financial meltdown. The disparity of justice mirrors the disparity in incomes and the disparity in power.
Occupy activists across the country have been pressured to “plea out” on felony charges in exchange for sentences of years of probation, which not only carry numerous restrictions, including being unable to attend law school or serve on a jury, but make it difficult for them to engage in further activism for fear of arrest and violating their probation. McMillan was offered the same plea deal but refused it. She was one of the few who went to trial.
“I am deeply committed to nonviolence, especially in the face of all the violence around me inside and outside this prison,” she said in the interview. “I could not accept this deal. I had to fight back. That is why I am an activist. Being branded as someone who was violent was intolerable.”
McMillan’s case is as much about our right to nonviolent protest as it is about McMillan. It is about our right to carry out such protest without being subjected to police violence intended to crush peaceful and lawful dissent. It is about our right to engage in political organization without our groups being monitored and infiltrated by the security and surveillance state. It is about our right of free speech and free assembly, guaranteed under the Constitution but effectively stripped from us in a series of judicial rulings and through municipal ordinances that make it impossible to protest in many U.S. cities.
Judge Ronald A. Zweibel was caustic and hostile to McMillan and her defense team during the trial. He barred video evidence that would have helped her case. He issued a gag order that forbade the defense lawyers, Martin Stolar and Rebecca Heinegg, to communicate with the press. And, astonishingly, he denied McMillan bail.
The judge also assiduously protected Bovell against challenges to his credibility. He refused to allow the jurors to hear about or see the excessive police violence that was used to clear the park the night McMillan was arrested—violence many activists say was the most indiscriminate and abusive ever inflicted during the Occupy movement. He hid Bovell’s history of misconduct as a police officer from the jury. Bovell has been investigated at least twice by the internal affairs section of the New York City Police Department, the Guardian newspaper reported. Bovell and his police partner, in one of the cases, were sued for allegedly using an unmarked police car to strike a 17-year-old fleeing on a dirt bike. The teenager said his nose was broken, two teeth were knocked out and his forehead was lacerated. The case was settled out of court for a significant amount of money. There is also a video that appears to show Bovell relentlessly kicking a suspect on the floor of a Bronx grocery. In addition, Bovell was involved in a ticket-fixing scandal in his Bronx precinct. And Austin Guest, 33, a Harvard University graduate who was arrested at Zuccotti Park on the night McMillan was assaulted, is suing Bovell and the NYPD because the officer allegedly intentionally banged his head on the internal stairs and seats of a bus that took him and other activists in for processing. The judge barred the running down of the teenager on the dirt bike and Bovell’s alleged abuse of Guest from being discussed in front of the jury.
The case has galvanized many activists, who see in McMillan’s persecution the persecution of movements across the globe struggling for nonviolent democratic change. McMillan was visited in Rikers by Russia human rights campaigners of the group Pussy Riot. Hundreds of people, including nine of the 12 jurors and some New York City Council members, have urged Judge Zweibel to be lenient. Some 160,000 people have signed an online petition calling on Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo to intervene on her behalf. But so far pleas like these have failed to mollify the corporate state’s determination to use the McMillan case as a tool to prevent any new mass movements.
“I am very conscious of how privileged I am, especially in here,” McMillan said. “When you are in prison white privilege works against you. You tend to react when you come out of white privilege by saying ‘you can’t do that’ when prison authorities force you to do something arbitrary and meaningless. But the poor understand the system. They know it is absurd, capricious and senseless, that it is all about being forced to pay deference to power. If you react out of white privilege it sets you apart. I have learned to respond as a collective, to speak to authority in a unified voice. And this has been good for me. I needed this.”
“We can talk about movement theory all we want,” she went on. “We can read Michel Foucault or Pierre Bourdieu, but at a certain point it becomes a game. You have to get out and live it. You have to actually build a movement. And if we don’t get to work to build a movement now there will be no one studying movement theory in a decade because there will be no movements. I can do this in prison. I can do this out of prison. It is all one struggle.”
McMillan has been held in Rikers’ Rose M. Singer Center, Dorm 2 East B, with about 40 other women. They sleep in rows of cots. Nearly all the women are poor mothers of color, most of them black, Hispanic or Chinese. McMillan is giving lessons in English in exchange for lessons in Spanish.
McMillan has bonded with an African-American woman known as “Fat Baby” who ogled her and told her she had nice legs. Fat Baby threw out a couple of lame pickup lines that, McMillan said, “sounded as if she was a construction worker. I told her I would teach her some pickup lines that were a little more subtle.”
McMillan, who is required to have a prison activity, participates in the drug rehabilitation program although she did not use drugs. She is critical of the instructor’s feeding of “positive” and Christian thinking to the inmates, some of whom are Muslims. “It is all about the power of positive thinking, about how they made mistakes and bad choices in life and now they can correct those mistakes by taking another road, a Christian road, to a new life,” she said. “This focus on happy thoughts pervades the prison. There is little analysis of the structural causes for poverty and oppression. It is as if it was all about decisions we made, not that were made for us. And this is how those in power want it. This kind of thinking induces passivity.”
McMillan was receiving 30 to 40 letters daily at Rikers but during the week before the interview was told every day that she had none. She suspects the prison has cut off the flow of mail to her.
Because my pens and paper were confiscated during the two-hour process it took to enter the prison, after the visit I had to reconstruct the notes from our conversation, which lasted an hour and a half. The entry process is normal for visitors, who on weekends stand in long lines in metal chutes outside the prison. My body was searched and my clothing was minutely inspected for contraband, and I had to go through two metal detectors.
During the interview a guard asked McMillan to roll down her sleeves and admonished her once for crossing her legs. “You scratch a hole in the crotch,” McMillan said, running a fingernail up and down the crotch seam of her jumpsuit. “You make a small hole. And when the visitor slips you a cigarette you push up your vagina. I am learning a lot in prison. I have gotten very good at hiding books on my way to medical and stealing food to bring back to the dorm.”
“It is hard to read, it is hard to write,” she went on. “There is constant movement and constant noise.”
She was working Sunday on the statement she would read in court Monday. She said it draws heavily from Leo Tolstoy’s “The Kingdom of God Is Within You.”
McMillan had just finished writing a message to supporters who planned to rally in her support Sunday afternoon in New York City. She told them:
I came to New York the summer of 2011 to go to school—Rikers Island was definitely not on my list of intended experiences. Though I did call myself “a radical” that title stretched only as far to include plans to start a socialist student chapter and study welfare policy with aims of improving it. Within 1 week, these plans were railroaded by the Occupy Wall Street Movement—and for the following 3 months, I did little else.
Like many, the eviction of Zuccotti left me lost, searching for that infectious energy that bound so many together in efforts to transform the world. Like many, I’ve spent the time since trying to understand what we had & striving to get back to it.
Like many I point to a lack of militancy in our movement—a commitment of one’s entire being—personally, politically, emotionally & physically—to the greater good. But I examined what action those beautiful words entailed, I exchanged “militancy” for the concept of “love ethic”—a distinction born of the belief that fights between “usses and thems” run counter to the collective “we”. “We” being human society with each person as an integral part—that must be seen, heard, felt & loved—in order to transform the whole.
Like many, I found my beliefs easy to come by but difficult to act on. I always strived, but often struggled, to see, hear, feel, to love—even as I expected as much in return. I began to question, “If it is such a struggle to solidify amongst a few, how can we hope to strengthen love ethic across the many?”
Unlike most, when my trial began: friends formed a support structure, comrades came to court, journalists reported injustices. When the verdict was read, cries of outrage were heard, the news spread, & sympathy was shared from around the world.
Unlike most, during my weakest hour, I had never felt more supported. Though I had never ever felt more oppressed, I had never felt so loved. I stand resolved to keep fighting, because your love ethic props me up and allows me to do so.
Unlike most, I am blessed with the support of so many. And though I am thankful, I am also thoughtful of the many forced to face such oppression alone. I know you have already done so much, but I’m going to ask for one thing more:
If you feel safe enough to share, please raise your hand if you have suffered police violence? If you have suffered sexual violence? If you have suffered the violence of the justice system? If you have suffered the violence of the prison system?
Oppression is rampant. Take a moment to try & really see, hear, feel the suffering of the many around you. Now imagine the power of your collective love ethic to stand against it.
Only through the pervasive spread of such a love ethic by the many for the many—not just the privileged few—will we finally have ourselves a movement.
McMillan takes comfort from her supporters and her family and from those of her heroes who endured prison for a just cause. She reads and rereads the speech Eugene V. Debs made to a federal court in Cleveland before he went to prison for opposing the draft in World War I. His words, she said, have become her own.
“Your honor, years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth,” Debs said. “I said it then, as I say it now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it, and while there is a criminal element I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.”
Chris Hedges spent nearly two decades as a foreign correspondent in Central America, the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans. He has reported from more than 50 countries and has worked for The Christian Science Monitor, National Public Radio, The Dallas Morning News and The New York Times, for which he was a foreign correspondent for 15 years.
By Dave Hodges
In the alternative media, we constantly hear the mantra that if we could only “wake up” enough Americans, we could stop the globalists in their tracks. and then we lament the fact that most of our fellow countrymen are dumber than a box of rocks. However, the worm may be turning and turning dramatically! There are six corporations which control 98% of the media and their media investments are taking a beating. Americans watch almost 35 hours of television per week. That is a lot of Pavlovian conditioning that is taking place as a result of television and the corporate controlled message coming out of the “boob tube”.
Our nation is inundated with an amazing amount of propaganda and a decidedly one-sided view of the world. Gone from the media are any alternative theories behind the 9/11 attacks. The JFK assassination conspiracy theories that were once dominant in the 1990′s have all but disappeared. Benghazi has been whitewashed by the mainstream media (e.g. Fox, CNN, MSNBC). Whatever happened to Fast and Furious?
The Alternative Media Is Having a Big Influence
In light of my recent series on state-sponsored pedophilia, I received over a combined 400 comments and emails which detailed more stories of CPS abuse and trafficking of children which is taking place all across this country. I had over 40 emails from mother’s who have been victimized in a manner similar to Monika Wesolowski, who had her child stolen and allegedly sex trafficked by the 2 gay fathers who now have custody of her son Dylan. Even a prominent reporter from World Net Daily reached out to me because she wants more information on child sex trafficking being conducted under the collective noses of various government agencies. Yet, we do not hear one word of these allegations in the MSM. Even a major watershed event, such as the Bundy Affair, received scant attention from the MSM as has the mounting death toll of patients under Obamacare.
The Public Knows That Something Is Terribly Wrong and the MSM Is Not Providing Answers
The general public knows that something is terribly wrong with this country and its not being covered in the MSM and they are seeking answers. Returning veterans who have served in Afghanistan are returning home with stories of how American soldiers are providing protection for Afghan drug lords. Their neighbors and friends are wondering why these stories are not on the nightly news.The American people are beginning to view the police with more distrust because of the rampant instances of police abuse taking place in this country.
Most Americans know Obama is a foreign national who cares nothing about the plight of the middle class. Obama’s anti-American policies and unwarranted EPA swat teams have alienated nearly all farmers and ranchers and their friends and families are wondering why the media is not covering these abuses. As a result, farmers, ranchers, veterans and most of the middle class loathe this President and holds him in extreme contempt. Yet, if one was watching nothing but the MSM, they would think that Obama is the epitome of a loyal American doing his best to protect and defend the Constitution.
A growing number of Americans have awakened to the fact that this is not the case and are looking for “alternative” means to get their news. Once an obscure term, most average Americans have now heard of FEMA camps. Most Americans are aware of Fast and Furious despite the minuscule attention paid to this Watergate type of event by the MSM. The sheer number of disenfranchised groups have alerted the rest of us that we are not getting the full truth in the MSM. Most Americans have had some exposure to the alternative media and as a result, we are seeing a lot of Americans in flux in terms of what they now believe about their government.
The MSM Is Now the Dinosaur Media
According to a recently released Pew Research study, the number of prime time viewers for CNN, Fox and MSNBC fell by a combined fell by11% last year. Eleven percent may not sound overwhelming, so allow me to rephrase this in another light. In 2013, over one in ten Americans have stopped watching the corporate controlled media propaganda which serves to anesthetize and lobotomize it viewers, listeners and readers from the realities of what is really taking place in this country. Here is the breakdown of the decline of the corporate controlled media empire:
Fox News has lost 6% of its primetime audience and this is the good news for the MSM.
CNN is down by 13%
MSNBC is down by a whopping 24%
Newspaper ad revenues are down by a third and major magazines are selling 20% less ad space in today’s advertising wars.
Sorry George Noory, Coast to Coast AM ratings are also in the toilet. Since Noory fired the more popular John B. Wells, Noory’s audience has caught on to the fact that the show and host fit into the corporate controlled category and they do not represent any semblance of true investigative journalism.
A recent Gallup survey found that an amazing 77% of Americans distrust mainstream media television and are turning to other sources for news and information. According to the Gallup Poll, only HMO’s, the banks and Congress have lower public trust ratings than the media. And would you care to guess who owns the banks, HMO’s and Congress? It is the same people who own the media. This fact tells me that an increasing number of Americans, whether they realize it or not, are rejecting the New World Order. These are the potential foot soldiers of tomorrow’s resistance.
The mainstream media (MSM) represents the controlling corporate interests in today’s media. The MSM controls an estimated 96-98% of all media outlets. Some of the major players are Gannett, who owns the top 50 newspapers, and Clear Channel Communications who owns approximately 1,300 radio stations. The major goal of the MSM is to propagandize the country by disguising the fact that Americans are now living in a fascist, corporate controlled and banker hijacked government, and as a result, the American middle class has become an endangered species.
The other media in this country is often referred to as the alternative media (AM). I despise this term. Since when is writing and broadcasting the truth and alternative endeavor? The term itself, the alternative media, marginalizes the movement. I prefer the term, the truthful media. However, by convention, I feel compelled to use the term, “alternative media” a little while longer. And what is the purpose of the alternative media? It’s overriding mission is to educate Americans as to the crimes being committed by corporate and government officials which are being covered up by the MSM.
The Yin and the Yang of Opportunity
Nature abhors a vacuum, so where will these disenfranchised MSM dropouts go for their news? The AM is growing by leaps and bounds. In fact the MSM is even admitting defeat. A meant-to-be-secret 96-page internal New York Times report, recently sent to top executives last month contains admissions that the MSM knows they are losing the information war. The newest version of the report describes a newsroom struggling to adjust to the digital world dominated by the MSM. The MSM cannot compete with the AM on its home turf, the Internet.
Ernie Hancock, the publisher of FreedomsPhoenix told me that 60% of younger adults are getting their news from digital sources and that number is sure to grow exponentially. This is the Yin of our truth movement. Globalist insider, Zbigniew Brzezinski, says that the much feared “global political awakening” is in full swing and it constitutes the biggest threat to the globalist domination of the planet. However, Brzezinski also stated, in a very prophetic manner, it is easier “to kill one million people than it is to control one million people”. This is the Yang.
The globalists know they are losing the information war, but they are determined to not lose control and they are willing to sacrifice much of humanity to maintain control. This is why false flag events, martial law, bankster wars and genocide were invented. History shows that when the elite lose control of the propaganda machine martial law and genocide is the next stop. This is what we must be prepared for in the upcoming months.
Unfortunately Dave has obtained the reputation of a doom and gloomer, but prudence dictates being prepared when it comes to tyrants, and we surely are under the control of the worlds most powerful tyrants. Never forget the holocaust, and the reason people were slaughtered was their confidence in the authorities. We may not live much longer, but death is better than slavery. Perhaps we should all consider our souls future and repent.
How in the world did we get here? Families struggle with the joblessness and debt left by the corporate takeover of life. They are bombarded with a mean-spirited right/left emotional tone in public debate which gets nastier by the day. All the while, “The Powers That Be” (TPTB) are full-speed ahead inventing new ways to expand laws to micro-manage the lives of everyday Americans. Who knew?
Kick the bums out! Elect leaders who care! Reform the system! Get money out of election campaigns! Protest! Amend the Constitution to get rid of human privileges by corporations! Write your Congressman! And don’t forget to vote!
But really, aren’t we simply witnessing too little too late?
The quest for political reform fails to address the source of the problem. The real culprit is the way we humans think and behave and how our behavior so often falls to the lowest common denominator of what we can get away with. The “do no harm” adage of the Golden Rule as what works in human relations holds little sway in the 21st century digital world. Instead, the mantra which rules, spoken mostly in hushed tones, goes something like, “Get as much as you can any way you can.”
Certainly we find unspeakably corrupt behavior played out in politics and business, but lo and behold, such deceitful behavior begins squarely with the lowly individual. Name-calling, lying, cheating, bullying, stealing, back-biting, character assassination and the joy of dominating others, describes a few of the choices people make at home, at work and, of course, in politics. Considered practically normal, this style of relating is the basic personal crisis of conscience justified by, “but everyone is doing it!”
The Invisible Power of Context
Americans are culturally conditioned to believe that their country is the foundation of freedom and truth and they have neither knowledge nor interest to fact-check what their leaders and media tell them. – Lawrence Davidson, professor of history, West Chester University in Pennsylvania, 2014
A country’s political and financial “container,” or context, has the power to shape and define the scope of possibilities for its people. However, we lose sight of this fact and instead focus on the problems caused by governing systems. For example, American education teaches a version of American history that consistently overlooks and under-reports certain events, particularly those leading up to and surrounding the creation of the Constitution of the United States and the U.S. Government. It was by these events that the direction of the country was forever changed in ways that departed greatly from what we have been led to believe. A universal principle is at work here: any context, political or otherwise, has overarching influence on the content within it, e.g. as does the sun on every aspect of its solar system.
In this essay, I hope to shed light on a couple of the missing pieces to the puzzle of a pivotal moment in American history. Perhaps the reader will take away a bigger picture and begin to consider how what happened then laid the foundation for the financial, political, social and personal ills faced by the 99% today, and also discover the hidden-in-plain-view remedy available for the taking.
The First Form of Governance in America
The story of America began with British colonists-turned-Americans and their individual rights and self-governance even as the American Revolution was underway. Setting the stage was the Declaration of Independence, ratified on July 4, 1776, and the first federal constitution, the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, drafted mid-1776 (hereafter called the Articles or first constitution). John Dickinson of Pennsylvania penned the combined input of the delegates from each of the thirteen colonies that convened to create the Articles, America’s first governing document. It was adopted November 1777, and ratified in 1781 by all thirteen fledgling states.
In effect, this first constitution elevated the common man to the same status as that of a sovereign king, i.e. a self-governing “free inhabitant.” Each of the several states functioned autonomously within a purely voluntary and decentralized federal system. English Common Law, based on God-given “natural” law, was inherited from England as the law of the land. Thomas Jefferson, in the Declaration of Independence, discerned the existence of a new American jurisdiction and the lack of authority British King George III had over it while referring to the first American constitution:
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
The stated purpose of the new, loosely-formed Union was to fend together against foreign invasion. United under the Articles, free inhabitants of the several states were able to protect themselves in ways not otherwise possible separately. The period of 1777 to 1789 was a time of general prosperity in America as the earliest Americans enjoyed benefits of the confederation without obligation of federal citizenship.
The said States hereby severally enter into a firm league of friendship with each other, for their common defense, the security of their liberties, and their mutual and general welfare, binding themselves to assist each other, against all force offered to, or attacks made upon them, or any of them, on account of religion, sovereignty, trade, or any other pretense whatever. —“The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union,” 1781
Not long after the 1781 ratification of the Articles, federal leaders agreed on what they saw as the many weaknesses inherent to the Articles since provisions for a supreme court, a commerce clause, the regulation of foreign trade, a standing army and the enforcement of taxation, had not been included. Over the years historians agreed the Articles were a failure, an opinion few would ever challenge.
In 1787 the Congress of the Confederation authorized that the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention could be held, however, with a resolution of specific, clearly stated limitations, “for the sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation and reporting to Congress and the several legislatures.”
As they say, the rest is history. It was at the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention that the 1787 Constitution of the United States came into existence. Interestingly, most Americans believe that it was with this second constitution that the country began. Ask anyone, and most people will tell you they had little to no idea about the years of American history prior to 1787.
The Articles have been listed as one of the four Organic Laws (founding laws) of the United States of America, along with the Declaration of the United States of America, 1776, the Northwest Ordinance, 1787 and the Constitution of the United States 1787, listed at the beginning of the U.S. Code (official compilation of all U.S. laws).
The Second Form of Governance in America
As people know from experience there are two sides to any story. Yet few learn the other side of the story about America’s beginnings. The other side of the American story reveals how to many Americans at that time, the idea of the 1787 Constitution of the United States was less about “a more perfect union…of, by and for the people” and more about implementing the Federalist plan to concentrate federal power in the hands of a few.
Free inhabitants, led by the likes of Patrick Henry, feared exactly this, a centralized system reminiscent of a form of governance like that of the British Empire they had so recently escaped. Behind the cover of patriotism, it turns out that their fears were well-founded, The Constitution of 1787 and the U.S. Government it established was nothing less than a bloodless coup of the original American jurisdiction and way of life by a small group of powerful businessmen.
The short version of the coup is that at the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention the Framers of the 1787 Constitution ignored the Congress of the Confederation’s resolution allowing only revisions to the Articles. Instead, they created an entirely new (unauthorized) second constitution and in 1789 proclaimed it ratified, though by only nine states and not the thirteen, as required by the Articles. On their own terms and by their own authority, the Framers created an illegitimateconstitution and instituted a U.S. Government of manmade statutory law.
The creation of this second constitution and its government slipped in under the radar of most free inhabitants because they did not have the higher education necessary (as did the Framers) to figure out what had just happened. Many believed what the Federalist Papers told them; they would be recipients of a “more perfect union” because “all power of government was with the people.”
Yet for Patrick Henry and his cohorts, the incremental erosion of freedoms and liberties upon the establishment of the new U.S. Government did not go unnoticed. Essentially, these were the structural shifts from English Common Law to manmade statutory law, and from decentralized self-governance of “do no harm” to a centralized government of compelled performance (force). Autocratic government representation reverted back to serving the interests of an elite tyranny of the minority, the wealthy landowners.
Fast forward to today and the many statutory laws and regulations such as the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) legalizing indefinite detention of U.S. Citizens while denying them a trial by jury. By written law, U.S. Citizens have become potential enemy combatants or domestic terrorists, i.e. enemies of the state. Who benefits?
Herein is the overarching national myth for those with ears to hear: the myth is that we live in a nation of, by, and for the people. The second constitution marked a turning point backward, not forward, for the American people because the model for the U.S. Government used by the Framers was the British Monarchy, a fact well-documented in the notes of delegates attending the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention. Rule by a few, defined as oligarchy, differs only slightly from rule by a monarchy. Oligarchy (olig-archy) offers a handful of additional rulers beyond one king (mon – archy). The late comedian Bill Hicks described it this way, “You are free to do as we tell you.”
The Good News of Territorial Jurisdiction
As mentioned above, the body of law recognized by the first constitution was English Common Law, also known as unwritten law. Whereas under the second constitution the body of law recognized was statutory law, also known as written law. A statute is written by a state or federal authority. A characteristic of all written laws is that they must identify the boundaries (physical borders) of the land it owns, within which live the people to whom (and only to whom) its laws apply, also known as territorial jurisdiction.
While the Supremacy Clause of the second constitution declares it to be “the supreme law of the land,” former attorney and law researcher Dr. Eduardo Rivera says, not so fast. He asserts that the claim of supremacy is limited to the lands within the United States territorial jurisdiction. Therefore, statutory law of the U.S. Government applies exclusively to Americans living on federally-owned lands.
In 1807, Supreme Court Justice John Marshall delivered the death blow to the authority of English Common Law in the U.S. court system. In the decision, Ex parte Bollman and Swartwout 4 Cranch 75, he stated that written law (i.e. statutory law) was the exclusive law of the United States courts. His decision confirmed that a jurisdiction is defined by written law and “cannot transcend that jurisdiction.” A common law and statutory law system could exist simultaneously as different territorial jurisdictions.
Courts which originate in the common law possess a jurisdiction which must be regulated by their common law, until some statute shall change their established principles; but courts which are created by written law, and whose jurisdiction is defined by written law, cannot transcend that jurisdiction. The reasoning from the bar, in relation to it, may be answered by the single observation, that for the meaning of the term habeas corpus, resort may unquestionably be had to the common law;but the power to award the writ by any of the courts of the United States, must be given by written law. —Ex parte Bollman and Swartwout 4 Cranch 75(emphasis added)
It has historically been well-established that King George III ceded his thirteen colonies to the new United States of America. Less well-known is that with the second constitution, lands that had been owned by the temporary government of the Northwest Ordinance were transferred in ownership to the newly formed United States/U.S. Government in 1789. Americans living within the borders of the Northwest Territory were, therefore, the (only) Americans subject to the statutory law of the new U.S. Government. Otherwise, the free inhabitants of the thirteen original states remained under the territorial jurisdiction of the first constitution and English Common Law by which they had been created.
What makes this period in American history so significant today? Since the Articles were never legally repealed (in writing), they not only remain valid per the Organic Laws above mentioned, but also as the governing document for current-day free inhabitants NOT living on federally-owned land. It is no surprise we were never told.
Why should you care about any of this? There’s a maxim in law that says, “Things that are different are not the same.” Apples are not oranges, right?
Apples: first constitution/decentralized several states/voluntary federal participation/ English Common Law/conscience/God-given rights
Oranges: second constitution/centralized federal government/compelled performance (force)/statutory law/commerce/manmade legislated rights (privileges)
Two totally different territorial jurisdictions exist simultaneously in America today. What Jefferson said in the Declaration of Independence about King George III being unable to subject the new Americans to a foreign jurisdiction reverberates today with a U.S. Government and its “Acts of pretended Legislation,” meaning those of a foreign jurisdiction that actually has succeeded in subjecting free inhabitants to laws that do not apply to them.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation.
Federal land ownership has changed and expanded beyond the time when it was only the land inside the Northwest Territory that was federally owned. Now “the Federal Zone” is a force to be reckoned with. A government document, “Congressional Research Service: Federal Land Ownership: Overview and Data 2012” reports, “The federal government owns roughly 635-640 million acres, 28% of the 2.27 billion acres of land in the United States.” Including:
- The District of Columbia
- Federal Zones within States and Counties and lands of the Bureau of Land Management
- Territories of the United States
- U.S. and Overseas Military Bases
- Foreign Embassies, Veteran’s Hospitals and U.S. Post Offices
- U.S. Coastal Waters
- National Parks
- Most U.S. Airport Property
You Can’t Get There from Here
The number of Americans who agree that the federal system is broken and cannot be fixed is growing despite those who keep trying. A centralized U.S. Government of statutory law is largely a commercial system governed by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). Given the structural design and operating principles of consolidation and centralization of such a system, power thereby defaults into the hands of a few. While these principles of an overarching commercial system remain firmly intact, there can be no possibility for genuine reform. It is structurally impossible.
Libido dominante, the lust for power, coined 2000 years ago to describe the founder of the Roman Empire, Augustus Caesar, is still what drives people, and especially in a system where so much of life (including people and nature) has been commoditized. The lust for power, no matter how you slice it, unleashes the worst of human behavior that affects people and places. Individually we neglect to look in the mirror, admit culpability as imperfect creatures, and commit to making changes in the only way change can begin and take root – with ourselves. When enough of us, from “authorities” to celebrities and children, voluntarily replace self-interest with conscience as our operating principle and reclaim the willingness to “do the right thing” in any situation, only then can something collectively amazing happen for America.
It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power. – David Brin, author
Free-inhabitant Americans today have unwittingly become the beneficiaries of the lost authority of the Articles. Given the continued validity of this governing document, individuals, families and organizations can set out to reconfigure their relationship with a foreign jurisdiction of U.S. Government statutory laws that do not apply to them. In order for a renaissance of individual freedoms and liberties to take hold and be sustained, it will be because the first constitution and all it stands for has again had life breathed into it.

Some people say that you can see a mans soul by reading his works, and in the case of Brandon Smith I am convinced that is true. He is far above the average author morally, intellectually, and intuitively. He is my idea of what kind of person makes a good teacher, or leader, and most certainly an author. He is wise far beyond his years, and in this present world we need many more just like him. I ask every reader of this article to contact him by email and express your appreciation for his involvement in the internet reformation – liberty movement. Reading his work can make a man very humble and aware of his own deficiencies, and one can find few things more valuable than reading his work. Today you have a choice: you can help spread his work and wake people up to our present danger, or you can go back to sleep. firstname.lastname@example.org
By Brandon Smith The ultimate and final goal of evil is to obscure and destroy our very conception of evil itself, to change the inherent moral fiber of all humanity until people can no longer recognize what is right and what is wrong. Evil is not a wisp of theological myth or a simplistic explanation for the aberrant behaviors of the criminal underbelly; rather, it is a tangible and ever present force in our world. It exists in each and every one of us. All men do battle with this force for the entirety of our lives in the hope that when we leave this Earth, we will leave it better and not worse. When evil manifests among organized groups of people in the halls of power, power by itself is not always considered the greatest prize. The true prize is to mold society until it reflects the psychopathy that rots at the core of their being. That is to say, the elites, the oligarchy, the mad philosopher kings want to make us just like they are: proudly soulless. Only then can they rule, because only then will they be totally unopposed.
The problem is humanity is not only hardwired with a dark side; we are also hardwired with a conscience — at least, most of us are. The vast studies of psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung prove an in-depth and intricate inborn set of principles common to every person, regardless of time or place of birth and regardless of environmental circumstances. In some circles we refer to this as “natural law.” All people are born with a shared moral compass that is often expressed in various religious works throughout the ages. It is a universal voice, or guide, that we can choose to listen to or to ignore. Organized psychopaths have struggled with the existence of this inborn compass for centuries.
They have tried using force and fear. They have tried abusing our natural inclinations toward family and tribalism. They have tried corrupting the very religious institutions that are supposed to reinforce our consciences and teach us nobility. They have tried psychotropic substances and medications to paralyze our emotional center and make us malleable. They have tried everything, and they have failed so far. How do I know they have failed? Because you are able to read this article today.Two methods remain prominent in the arsenal of elites.
Convince Good People To Do Evil In The Name Of ‘Good’
This strategy is still effective, depending on the scenario encountered. Elitists are very fond of presenting mind games to the public (in TV, cinema, books, etc.), which I call “no-win scenarios.” These games are hypothetical dilemmas that require the participant or viewer to make a forced choice with only two options: The participant can strictly follow his conscience, which usually means assured destruction for himself and others; or he can bend or break the rules of conscience in order to save lives and achieve a “greater good.”
Watch the propaganda tsunami in the show “24,” for example, and tally how many times the hero is faced with a no-win scenario. Then tally how many times he ignores his moral imperative in order to succeed. The message being sent is clear: Solid morality is not logical. Morality is a luxury for those who do not have to concern themselves with immediate survival. In other words, the world needs bad men to fight other bad men.
Of course, real life is not television; and there has never been nor will there ever be a legitimate example of a no-win scenario. There are no dilemmas that require good people to knowingly sacrifice conscience or destroy innocent lives in order to succeed. There are no dilemmas with only two available solutions. All social dilemmas are fluid, which means that solutions are shifting, but infinite. Just because you cannot see the way out does not mean the way out does not exist. To fight monsters, we do not need to become monsters. Survival is meaningless unless we can prove ourselves worthy of life. This does not mean one should not fight back against evil. On the contrary, one should always fight back. But if we fight without a code of principles and honor, then we will have lost before the battle begins.
Convince Good People That There Is No Such Thing As ‘Evil’ People Any action, no matter how horrifying, can be rationalized by the intellectual mind or the mathematical mind. This is why we are born with an emotional and empathic side to our natures. Those who embrace evil often seek to soften their image through the use of cold rationalization. They appeal to our desire to feel logically responsible and to boost our intelligent self-image.
Some people might argue that the machinations of evil are self-evident, and that philosophical examinations such as this are unnecessary. They would say that there is no need to reassert that the works of psychopathy and elitism are fundamentally destructive, but they would be wrong. I was recently sifting through some mainstream articles when I came across this jewel entitled “Why Psychopaths Are More Successful.”
The article summarizes the theories behind a new “science self-help book” entitled The Good Psychopath’s Guide To Success. Co-author and Oxford psychology professor, Kevin Dutton, states that he “wanted to debunk the myth that all psychopaths are bad.” He wrote: “I’d done research with the special forces, with surgeons, with top hedge fund managers and barristers. Almost all of them had psychopathic traits, but they’d harnessed them in ways to make them better at what they do.”
Now, three important questions need to be asked of Dutton. First, what exactly is his definition of success? Second, if such people are “better” at what they do because of their psychopathic traits, who exactly are they “better” than? Is he suggesting that a non-psychopath could not be just as good a surgeon? Wouldn’t it be preferable to be good surgeon without psychopathy, one who still cares about the well-being of his patients rather than just his own success? And third, if a person can be accomplished in a field without abandoning his conscience as a psychopath does, what good is psychopathy to anyone?
You see, elitist academics like Dutton are not interested in answering such questions in an honest way because their goal is not necessarily to outline a legitimate argument for the usefulness of psychopaths. What they really want is to make psychopathy a morally acceptable ideal in the mainstream.
Dutton does this by asserting the false notion that there are such things as good psychopaths and bad psychopaths, thereby creating a superficial dichotomy he essentially pulled from thin air. Dutton cites several character traits he defines as being common to good psychopaths.
Psychopath Volume Control:
Dutton argues that a good psychopath has the ability to turn up or turn down his level of perceived empathy in order to avoid burning bridges with those around him. What Dutton fails to mention (or just doesn’t understand) is that this “volume control” is very common to the average psychopath. In fact, psychopaths tend to be quite adept at reading the emotional states of others and adapting to their moods to appear more human. This is how psychopaths end up in marriages, with families and in positions of respect in a community. This is how psychopaths become leaders. Catastrophes arise, however, when the psychopath decides he is comfortable enough that he no longer needs to hide his inability to feel conscience or remorse. There is nothing special or good about a morally bankrupt person who happens to be good at disguise.
Dutton’s claim that psychopaths are fearless is simply absurd and is not based in any practical psychology that I know of. Psychopaths are afraid all of the time. What they fear most is losing what they believe belongs to them. This could be money, power or even unlucky people caught in their web. This fear might drive them to take risks in order to accomplish certain goals. But let’s be clear: Only those who take risks because they love what they do have truly overcome fear. Psychopaths are incapable of true love.
Lack Of Empathy:
This is the root of the movement toward rationalized moral relativism — the argument that empathy gets in the way of success and sometimes gets in the way of the “greater good.” Dutton claims that lack of empathy gives the psychopath focus, making him skilled in high-pressure situations. In a hostage situation, he says, he would much rather have a psychopath as his negotiator. Of course, he does not consider that his captors would likely be the same kinds of psychopaths he so praises in his book.
One would conclude by reading Dutton’s position that high-pressure jobs require a lack of empathy. And of course, the jobs with the highest pressure are those in political and military leadership. The philosophy of applying positive assumptions to psychopathic qualities is the highest dream of the elite. If you and I could be convinced to see their gruesome behavior as fully necessary to the greater good, then they will have ascended to a place beyond accountability. They become like the old gods of Olympus, dealing death and destruction above the judgment of mere mortals; and we will have handed them that godhood.
I think Dutton is confused over the difference between confidence and narcissism. The average psychopath is often self-obsessed, which means he is willing to do anything to get what he wants. This drive might be impressive, but it is not a product of the kind of self-awareness required to gain real self-confidence. A parasitic tick is not necessarily self-confident when he digs into the flesh of a dog; all he knows is that he desperately wants the blood underneath.
A Kingdom Of Psychopaths
In his collected writings entitled “The Undiscovered Self,” Jung theorized according to his work with hundreds of patients that some 10 percent of the human population at any given time has latent psychopathic characteristics, with a much smaller percentage living as full-fledged psychopaths. He surmised that this latent psychopathy will often stay hidden or unconscious for most people, unless their social environment becomes unstable enough to bring out their darker side. The purges in the early days of communist Russia and Stalinism, for example, brought out the very worst in many normally harmless citizens. Neighbor turned against neighbor, and betrayal for personal gain became the norm. The collectivist hive became an incubator for psychopaths. What Dutton’s psychopathic success theory does not take into account is the fact that America, and much of the world today, is becoming a breeding ground for morally bankrupt people. That is to say, our society is now designed by psychopaths for psychopaths, and only psychopaths could succeed in such an environment. We are all being encouraged to become more psychopathic, more evil, in order to survive and thrive.
The destruction unleashed by the psychopathy of elitism far outweighs any potential benefits that might arise from their uncompromising brand of ingenuity. Anything these freaks of the psyche might accomplish can be accomplished with far less physical and moral cost by those with self-discipline and a love of their fellow man. I would be willing to wager any power monger that if he and his miscreant organizations were to disappear, humanity would leap forward in strides never before seen. Ultimately, those who embrace evil and those who elevate psychopathy are not the key to the betterment of the world; they are obstacles to the betterment of the world.

By Ron Ewart May 14, 2014 NewsWithViews.com “To the last, I grapple with thee; From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee; For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.” -Herman Melville, from his book ‘Moby Dick’
As anger grows by leaps and bounds in America over the direction we as a nation are heading, it is tempting, if not wholly natural, to focus that anger on a thing or a person. Most of government, local, state, or federal, is a faceless beast displaying a total disdain for the people and it is difficult to direct anger at the shadowy images that hide behind the dark curtain of government deceit and corruption, even though we know they are there. The fact is, we can’t reach them because these shadowy figures are protected by that curtain. It would be like trying to grab a handful of flies floating in a mirage. Nevertheless, certain individuals appear that we can reach, towards which we can express our outrage because they become the “face” of the anger. In a nation, we tend to focus our anger on the leaders because of their actions that work against us, or damage us in some way, or violate our rights. Anger can be an individual or a group expression. The recent raid on the Bundy Ranch in Nevada by the heavily armed Bureau of Land Management (BLM) henchmen, triggered a group expression of anger and it was very effective. The BLM backed down in the face of all that outrage and it is well that they did. The fact that the event was heavily covered by the media, aided in the BLM’s decision to stand down. Americans shooting at Americans and dying on camera doesn’t sell well on main-street. The farmer that outfitted his giant bulldozer with steel plates and peepholes and destroyed several government buildings with it before he committed suicide was an expression of individual anger. The farmer flipped out over a negative zoning decision. In contrast to the group expression of anger, he sacrificed himself and won absolutely nothing. The government buildings will be, or have been rebuilt with taxpayer funds. To all alone take on the giant bully that government has become, is not only fool hardy, it is just plain stupid. David’s slingshot just won’t do the trick any more. But ladies and gentlemen, there is one face that continues to gall millions of Americans. That is the face of Barack Hussein Obama and not because he is black. We get responses to our articles from people from all over America who are incensed by that face. They say things they don’t mean and threaten things they will never carry out, because of their growing anger every time they see that face. People have told us that the second Obama comes on the TV they turn off the TV, or switch channels. That’s hard to do when Obama decides to address the nation with a mouth that lies every time it opens. He’s on every channel. The more we learn about government, the more we learn about central bankers, the more we learn about the military industrial complex, the more we learn about social justice and the environmental movement, the more we learn about the move towards world government, the more we learn about politicians and political institutions and the corruption, waste, fraud, abuse and negligence they oversee and profit by, the angrier we get. Our anger is directed at the face that is the head of it all, Barack Hussein Obama. So here and now, we will express our individual anger in words to the person that is the owner of that face.Americans are not the creation of government. We are not pigeons you can train to send your messages. We are not cattle you can herd. We are not school children you can bully. We are not slaves you can force into hard labor, or sign up for Obama Care. We are natural born free men and women and government does not own us. We own you and we are prepared to defend a free America, as directed by the Declaration of Independence, if government turns to tyranny. We can do no less. We owe nothing to government except that which we choose to give. Yes, we have an obligation to assist government in its constitutional functions but we do not have an obligation to pay for government’s negligence, waste, fraud, abuse and corruption, or assist it in crony capitalism. We have no obligation to pay for the benefits of illegal aliens, or those that break our laws. We have no obligation to pay for foreign aid that becomes the private slush fund for brutal dictators. We have no obligation to pay for a sex change operation for a prisoner. We have no obligation to fund the lifestyle of those able bodied individuals that refuse to work. We have no obligation to pay 99 weeks of unemployment insurance, as that just exacerbates unemployment. We have no obligation to pay for the freeloaders that have multiple babies out of wedlock who somehow can’t remember who the father is. We have no obligation to pay for cell phones for those less fortunate than us. We have no obligation to pay for businesses that are too big to fail. We have no obligation to pay farmers not to grow or to grow certain crops that the government decides are beneficial. We have no obligation to pay for alternative energy because some environmental nut case and corrupt politicians tell us we must. We have no obligation to pay for cap and trade to rid America of carbon dioxide gas that some other environmental nut case and some more corrupt politicians tell us, if we don’t the world will come to the end. Poppy cock! Without carbon dioxide, we are all dead. On the other hand, the government has no right to rob the Social Security Trust Fund and replace it with IOU’s where they have to borrow the money to pay back the IOU’s. That’s our money. The government has no right to grant amnesty to illegal aliens who come here and suck up our generous benefits and take away jobs that could go to legal Americans. The government has no right to act as a venture capitalist with our tax money for companies they select because of the government’s hopelessly flawed environmental ideology and policies. The government had no right to set up an agency to collect taxes, create 70,000 pages of ridiculously complicated regulations and violate every principle of due process and constitutional protections. They had and have no right to use the American people to collateralize loans made by the Federal Reserve to the government and obligate the people to a lifetime of loan payments on a loan that can never be paid back. Americans DID NOT sign onto those loans. They had no right to set up an Environmental Protection Agency that writes rules and regulations that effectively repeal the 5th and 8th Amendments. They had no right to set up the Department of Energy, or the Department of Education and a gaggle of other out-of-control federal bureaucracies that send hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. The government had no right to do away with our incandescent light bulbs and force the people to use expensive florescent bulbs that contain toxic waste and require special disposal handling. They had no right to force us to turn corn, a food, into inefficient ethanol for gas. The government had no right to set up the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and force-feed it, at the point of a gun, to the teachers and school districts across the country. Fortunately, states, teachers and school districts are rejecting CCSS and the movement is growing. Government has no right to drive political correctness propaganda down the throats of our children and indoctrinate them with the one-world-order, social justice and radical environmentalism. It has no right to collect the information required by CCSS on every one of our public school children and feed it into a national database. Who the Hell do they think they are? The government has no right to spy on every American and collect data on every individual’s activities just because the government says it is trying to protect us from foreign enemies. It is tyranny of the highest order. It had no right to spend billions of our tax dollars to nationalize the entire health care industry in America and replace it with the most unworkable, corrupt system that has ever been devised by man. Obama had and has no constitutional authority to make massive changes to the law and violates his oath of office by so doing. Obama Care sinks bureaucratic negligence, fraud and corruption to a whole new level, never before seen in America. It is the face of tyranny. Obama’s face and his persona represent all that is wrong with America, figuratively, not literally. The President is supposed to stand with the people and be the vanguard of our liberties and faithfully execute our laws, but Obama is incapable of standing with the people. Every action he has taken in the last five years has killed jobs, not created them. He is the face of evil. He is the face of lies. He is the face of immorality. He is the face of cover-up and corruption. He is an empty shell. He is hollow and he is without genuine substance. Obama, in a word, is everything America is not, but he could be the spark that ignites a revolution. Of all the black men that could have been elected president, Obama is the worst of the black race. Many more qualified black men or women come to mind. Obama’s not the pick of the litter he is the worst of the lot. He is deformed in mind and in spirit. He is devoid of honor, obsessed by race and revenge and his stated goal is wealth redistribution and reparations for all American blacks. He has said as much. He and his wife do not like America and hold deep seated beliefs that America is hopelessly flawed and should pay a steep price for its alleged transgressions. He injects himself into race every time the issue comes up. Obama is by far the most racist, the most dictatorial and the most secretive president that has ever occupied the White House. If the Republicans take the Senate and keep the House in 2014, we urge the House to write Articles of Impeachment, submit them to the Senate and the Senate should try Obama for High Crimes and Misdemeanors. The list of his crimes, cover-ups and usurpations of executive power are long indeed. The damage Obama can do to this great nation in his last two years as President is incalculable. He must be stopped or thwarted by all legal means. In addition, the new Senate in Republican control should block every single Obama judicial nominee for all lower courts and the U. S. Supreme Court before Obama has the chance to negatively alter the judiciary long into the foreseeable future. It only takes 51 votes now to kill a nominee, thanks to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his nuclear option. The Democrats will rue the day they employed that option. So Obama, to sum up, you are the face of our collective anger and we figuratively, not literally, “spit our last breath at thee.” It is our strong belief that millions of Americans feel the way we do. Obama’s persona and actions have opened the eyes of those millions. His departure won’t save America, but it will go along way towards starting the long journey back.

BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WORK FOR THE PEOPLE!

“Thus, a nation becomes divided into two very distinct parts, a docile sub-nation (great silent majority) and a political sub-nation. The political sub-nation [corporate government] remains attached to the docile sub-nation [the public], tolerates it, and leaches its substance until it grows strong enough to detach itself and then devour its parent.”
Most folks know that their city is incorporated. Even government employees do not deny this reality. However, most folks don’t know that their county and state governments are also corporations. In fact all government agencies are corporations as well. This is easy to verify by looking them up on Dun and Bradstreet.com.
The employees of all of these government entities gloss over this fact however, claiming they have to be a corporation to do business. The problem is that they can’t generate profit for their own corporation and be public servants at the same time. Conflicts of interest become the norm, not the exception, and the people loose representation, which is exactly what has happened.
The following demonstrates how government-corporations serve their own corporation first and foremost . . . at the expense of the general public. These government-corporations have essentially become parasites on the people they claim to serve.
1) CAFR accounts
Comprehensive Annual Financial Report accounts are common with corporate-government entities. These somewhat hidden accounts are often referred to as rainy day funds. The public has no control over the size of these funds or the way they can be used. Meanwhile many corporate-governments continue to pass their own ‘rules’ (statutes) and tax levies to increase their revenue stream.
2) Decide their own salaries
In most instances the corporate-government determines how much its employees are paid. They can also decide to create new jobs for their own institutions. As with all corporations, government corporations have adopted the “growth” paradigm.
3) Unlimited ability to create rules, fines and fees
When cities pass statutes (rules) that levy fees and fines, the general public is coerced into paying more for services they never requested. And, most municipal corporate charters do not include a limit on the number of new rules that can be created. These new rules don’t necessarily serve the best interests of the community. This rule making power encourages corruption as well. Rules and policies are established all of the time that benefit large corporations over small locally owned businesses.
4) Accept ‘political agenda’ grants (bribes)
The corporate-government also has the ability to sign contracts and accept money from the fourth (unconstitutional) branch of the federal government: the 450 agencies now listed on the Federal Register under the ‘administrative’ function of the Executive Branch. All of these so-called agencies are also for-profit corporations listed on Dun and Bradstreet.
A great example is the bogus CO2 global warming scam. Climate actions plans are being implemented throughout our country via federal grants. The American people were never consulted or asked to weigh in on this bankster driven “cap and trade scheme”, even though 31,000 independent American scientists (see The Global Warming Petition) have done their best to expose that there is no such thing as CO2 climate change. The fourth branch of the US government (corporation) is funding massive changes to our economy and lifestyles via the corporate-government-agency network.
Another good example is the establishment of “fusion centers” and militarized police forces. After 911, state, county and local governments took grants for the construction of a police state. The money was accepted and programs were instituted without any questioning of the ‘official’ 911 story which has been exposed as false for many years. See: youtube – Building 7 – Gone in 7
5) Eminent Domain
Corporate-governments claim the authority of “eminent domain”. They decide, without permission from the public, to acquire property from homeowners and sell it to commercial enterprises. Many times these profit driven actions are done to benefit friends and/or campaign contributors.
6) The two minute rule
The two minute rule is another great example of a non-representative corporate-government. Anyone who has attended local city council, county commissioner or school board meetings was most likely told that there would be time for public comment during the meeting. Commonly the public is told to hold their comments to two minutes due to “time constraints”. While the public attendees are allowed to speak for two minutes, they cannot get answers to any legitimate questions. The current structure does not allow the city council, the county commissioners or the school board members to engage in public discussions. This structure allows them to keep the details of their policies, motivations, and funding sources away from public scrutiny.
7) Sell-out contracts
Corporate-government employees can enter into contracts that actually harm the community and its population. The mayor and city council members in one Indiana town signed a contract to permit garbage from Chicago to be dumped in their community. The public was never consulted regarding the establishment of a new land fill in their backyard and yet they were forced to live with it.
8) Hire their own propagandists
Way too many government ‘entities’ hire their own public relations people. This allows these corporations to control what the public is told about their shady deals and put a spin on their clandestine activities to keep the public confused and uniformed.
9) Get free legal council
Each corporate government has access to attorney services. Their employees don’t have to pay for legal council out of their own pockets. This makes it much easier to protect themselves from liability when they engage in what the public would consider “wrong doing” or unlawful endeavors.
10) Use the Delphi Technique of manipulation
These corporate governments are prone to manipulating the people via the Delphi Technique. Facilitators are used at “public comment” events to present new policies and/or programs. However, the outcomes are generally pre-determined and open public discussion is avoided at all cost. Tough questions from the attendees are silenced.
11) City Manager and other city employees adopt policies independent of the elected City Council
As these corporate governments can write their own corporate charters they can make their own rules as to their chain of command. The public is not asked to vote on the terms of these charters.
12) Little or no liability (or remorse) for the harm their policies cause
Bad government policies can and do cause significant losses to local businesses. The people do not vote on these policies and the corporate-government is rarely required to reimburse the business men and women for the financial harm these policies cause.
13) Outsources jobs
The public has no input regarding the outsourcing of government jobs to out of state or multi-national corporations. When this occurs, more locals loose their jobs and the public has little or no ability to control the bad service and high costs they are then forced to live with.
14) Police are now hired guns for government-corporations
Law enforcement employees have become nothing more than ‘statute’ enforcers. Since 911, city and county governments across the country have accepted money from the criminals in Washington to build a ‘police state’. While the people expect them to protect and serve them, in actuality the police protect and serve the corporate governments FROM the people. And most are willing participants in the government’s latest obsession of surveilling the general population.
What we have now is a counterfeit government doing business. Corporations CANNOT be governments as they are not real. They are just words on a piece of paper in a safe somewhere.
“In order to promulgate and enforce Criminal Laws to govern the SOVEREIGN public, government must be SOVEREIGN too, which is an accepted RULE of LAW derived from the, Ancient Law of Kings. Corporations are not and can never be SOVEREIGN. They are not real, they are a fiction and only exist on paper.“
If the American citizens really understood the International Investment Banking system and the involvement of the oligarchs that control our government and the Federal Reserve system, plus, the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports of all Corporations, there would be politicians hanging from every tree in America. In the beginning America was understood to be, and remain, a system of independent States connected only by an agreement between them called the Constitution (FOR) the United States of America, in order to give the people a freedom from Government oppression never before tried in all of history. (Since replaced with “The Constitution OF the U.S. Corporation. We must now admit that it did not work because it was completely dependent on having moral and honest men in office, and an astute citizenry. There remains no way to recover our freedom other than open rebellion, and the establishment of another system of government. But, the people must put aside their crazed infatuation with entertainment, and acquire the knowledge which you have just read. WE HAVE BEEN BEGUILED!

How is it possible that a nation founded upon Christian principles and values, one which had become the greatest and most successful experiment in government this world has ever known, could become such a willing participant in forsaking everything that made it great? What made it possible for that nation to deny, not only the American way of life, but to deny Christianity and Jesus Christ Himself? Although this did not happen overnight, there was only one way the forces of evil could have gained the foothold necessary to convert America into a Satanic State. As suggested in the book of The Revelation, there would have to be a catalyst in the form of some “authority figure” to bring all of the pieces together. That catalyst was found and put into place as a result of the election of 2008, in the person of Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama immediately went to work persuading his mesmerized flock of weak-minded individuals that there was more to life than what they had been taught. For those who loosely held onto the basic truth of Christianity, that one’s salvation and eternity in heaven could only be achieved by repenting of their sins and receiving Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, Obama quickly put them at ease by declaring that now there were several ways to make it into heaven, and these obedient and robotic minions were not about to question an official proclamation of their self-anointed “Messiah”!
Obama convinced them that there would be no need for them to die to make it into heaven, because he would create their heaven right here on Earth! If they didn’t want to work, all they had to do was sign up for perpetual unemployment benefits. And if that wasn’t enough, Obama would give them “free” health care, free cell phones, free education, free mortgages (which they couldn’t afford), food stamps, rent subsidies and even jobs for those who had not yet figured out that there was no longer any need to work for a living.
Wow, Utopia was here at last! Was Obama good, or what! He proclaimed that any government worth its salt would provide for a “cradle to the grave” existence for each and every one of the parasiticalmasses. Now it just couldn’t get any better than that! Obama knew that once this “free ride” mentality had been accepted, the rest would be easy. And for those who couldn’t be convinced through trickery and deceit, there was always the presumed guilt over slavery that would tie the hands and silence the voice of common sense and reason among those who had allowed this guilt to consume their every thought.
Under Obama, there would be no rules, except those, which he would create through his legislative procedure of choice, the Executive Order. He did make it very clear however, that in order for people to continue to enjoy this free and easy lifestyle, they must keep re-electing his disciples to office, those who would continue to provide this “free ride” existence. But then, who in their right mind would not vote for those people.
Responsibility and common sense were abandoned! Abortion would no longer be considered murder, but just another method of birth control. Same-sex marriage was no longer an immoral lifestyle and an abomination to God, but simply one’s right to co-habitat with whomever or whatever they choose.
Rules and responsibility were only for those who didn’t know how to enjoy the good life, and from now on, Christianity, the Constitution, ambition and all other obsolete principles and values relied upon to establish that old American nation would become but a distant reminder of an old-fashioned and square way of life.
Once Obama had rid the military leadership of those who might challenge his new world order form of government, and personal weapons had been removed from the hands of those who erroneously believed in a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms, the “Obumanization” of America would then be complete.
From being the nation that the rest of this misguided and crazy world once depended upon to bring some sense of civility to life itself, we have become a disgrace to our ancestors and the laughing stock of a world gone totally mad. Congratulations Barack: Mission accomplished!

I spite of his excellent blast of Obuma, Mr. Hubbard is still pouring out the same surreptitious garbage that makes uninformed people think that the election process really works. Heads up folks, the election process is the number one tool of the PTB to keep you ignorant of who runs the government. His denigration of the liberal parasites is a set up to get your sympathetic support. The entire Federal Government and all who work for it are either fools or covert traitors.
The Matrix and the US Constitution
By: Andrew Gavin Marshall
Think of any period in human history when empires and imperialism were common features of society, whether from ancient Egypt, Rome, China, to the Ottomans and the rise of the European and Japanese empires. There is an institution that – with few exceptions – was prevalent across most imperial societies: the family dynasty.
In a world dominated by institutions – organized hierarchically and embedded with their own functions and ideologies – the ‘family unit’ is very often the first and most important institution in the development of individuals. For the rich and powerful, the family unit has been the principal institution through which power is accumulated, preserved and propagated, precisely because the interest is multi-generational, requiring long-term planning and strategy.
In powerful states and empires, families have been essential in the process of constructing and governing the major institutions within those societies, as well as in the direct control of the imperial or state structure itself. Whether emperors, kings, queens or sultans, family dynasties have very often exerted direct political control of society. This has been the case for much of human history, at least so long as empires and states have been consistent features. And yet, in the modern era, we imagine our societies to be free of dynastic rule – an archaic feature of a world long past, not consistent with the ideals and functions of democracy, capitalism or modernity. We might imagine this to be true, but we would in fact, be wrong.
Dynastic power not only remains, but it evolves and adapts, and in the present world of ‘globalization’ – with the growth of the modern nation-states, with the development of state capitalist societies, the banking and financial systems, the monetary-central banking system, industrialization and the multinational corporation – in a world largely dominated by a single state, the United States, acting as the international imperial arbiter on behalf of powerful corporate and financial interests, dynastic power remains a central institution in the global system.
There are, however, notable differences from past era of imperial and royal families. Today, most – but certainly not all – dynasties do not hold formal or direct political authority. The world’s most economically and politically powerful countries are no longer governed by kings and queens or emperors. Instead, modern dynastic power is largely a development that emerged with the decline in the authority of monarchs, and with the rise in parliamentary democracy and capitalism.
As the political and economic spheres began to be opened up, new structures emerged to quickly centralize power within those spheres. As kings and queens handed over the ultimate authority to issue coin to other institutions, merchants and financiers stepped in to increase their influence over the new institutions of a changing world order. Out of these monumental social transformations came new dynasties, embedded within the financial, industrial and corporate oligarchies. Their power was not in direct control of the political apparatus, but in their concentration of control over the financial, economic and industrial spheres. With that power, inevitably, came both the desire and the ability to influence and pressure the political sphere.
Today, it is the industrial, financial and corporate dynasties that have risen to unparalleled positions of authority in the age of globalization. And yet, while some of their names ring familiar to the ears of many, they are frequently thought of as relics of past centuries rather than titans of today, or their names are altogether unfamiliar, as is their positions and influence within our societies. We see power – typically – in terms of those who hold political office: prime ministers and presidents who we elect, as is consistent with our belief that we live in democracies. We see competing factions of political parties vying for office, with us – the people – as the ultimate arbiters of who gets to hold power. The influence of globalization’s dynasties remains unseen, or, misunderstood.
When one hears the concept of relatively few families exerting unparalleled influence over the modern world, the immediate reaction or insinuation is that of a ‘conspiracy theory’. Images of smoke-filled back rooms and mentions of ‘thirteen families’ sitting around a table deciding world events permeate the perceptions of those who question or are confronted with the question of the role of powerful families in the modern world. And yet, the concept of dynastic rule – of families competing, cooperating, and indeed, conspiring with and against each other for control and domination – are prevalent and popular within our culture.
A perfect example of this is with the immense popularity of both the books and the television show, ‘Game of Thrones.’ Set in a mythical world, yet largely based upon the historical rivalries of the ‘War of the Roses’, we witness the characters evolve and events unfold as several families and dynasties battle each other, conspire, compete and cooperate for control of the known world. They are frequently ruthless, cunning and deceitful, often surrounded by ‘yes men’ or the poison-tongued advisers who rose to their positions not by virtue of birth and name, but by their individual capacities for manipulation and cunning. It is a world in perpetual war, engrossing poverty, with the privileged few sending the poor to fight their battles for them, to die and suffer while the rich few propagate and prosper. With no lack of conspiracies, the greatest threat to individual members of dynasties typically comes from their own or comparatively powerful families. Issues of patriarchy, incest, blood-lust, and secession – to the head of the family or the head of the throne – are consistent throughout.
Indeed, the world of ‘Game of Thrones’ – so popular in our culture – is not so far from the reality of our culture, itself. In the world of globalization, families cooperate, compete, and perhaps even conspire against and with each other or themselves. They keep the politics of dynastic power from being understood or contemplated by the masses. We are distracted with sports, entertainment, ‘royal weddings’, a fear of foreigners and terrorism, and are blinded and manipulated by a deeply embedded propaganda system. Our celebrity culture celebrates banality and irrelevance: we tune in to the latest Kim Kar-crash-ian disaster of a human being that plasters the tabloids, while we tune out to the rivalries and repercussions of ‘Globalization’s Game of Thrones’.
While modern dynasties share many characteristics of past ruling families, they have their major distinctions, largely derived from the fact that most of them do not hold formal political or absolute authority. Past dynasties typically held absolute authority over their local regions, states or kingdoms. That type of authority does not exist at the major state, regional or global levels today, with few exceptions, such as the ruling monarchs of the Gulf Arab dictatorships. Yet, while the mechanism of authority is less centralized or formalized in the modern world, the scope and reach of authority – or influence – has expanded exponentially. In short, while in past eras, a single family may have exerted absolute authority over a comparably small region or empire, today, the indirect influence of a dynastic family may reach across the globe, though it remains far from absolute.
Thus, we should not mistake modern dynasties as replications of previous ruling families. They are adaptations to the modern era. With the emergence and prevalence of globalization, multinational corporations, banks, financial markets, philanthropic foundations, think tanks, media conglomerates, educational institutions, public relations and the advertising industries, financial and industrial oligarchs and dynasties have come to be integrated with the nation-state structure. Families that have established modern dynasties typically rose to prominence through their concentration of power and wealth in financial, industrial and corporate spheres. From these positions, political power and influence became a necessity, or else the loss of economic power would be an inevitability.
Such dynasties would frequently establish a ‘family office’ – a private corporate entity – which would handle all of the investments, interests and finances of a dynasty; they would create new universities which would focus on producing knowledge and intellectuals capable of managing changes within and protecting the social order, instead of intellectual talents or pursuits being channeled into areas that challenge the prevailing order. Dynastic families establish ‘philanthropic foundations’ to serve a dual purpose of justifying their wealth and influence (by being perceived as ‘giving back’), but which, in actuality, provide concentrations of wealth managed for the purpose of ‘strategic giving’: to undertake social engineering projects with an ultimate objective of maintaining social control. While appearing to be ‘charitable’ institutions, the major foundations are predominantly interested in the process of long-term social engineering. Notably among such foundations are the Rockefeller Foundation, Carnegie Corporation, Ford Foundation, Open Society Institute, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, among many others.
Not unrelated – as they are frequently established and funded by foundations – think tanks are created with the intent to bring elite interests together from a wide array of institutions: financial, industrial, corporate, academic/intellectual, media, cultural, foreign policy and political spheres. In think tanks, top officials from these sectors are gathered in a single institution where they work together to plan strategies for economic and foreign policies, for establishing consensus between elites, and to serve as training and recruitment grounds for officials to enter the political and foreign policy establishment, where they are capable of enacting the very policies developed within the think tanks. Notable think tanks with immense influence – specifically in the United States – include the Council on Foreign Relations, the Brookings Institution, the Carnegie Endowment, and the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Larger, international think tanks have been increasingly common during the era of globalization, uniting respective elites from across the powerful western industrial states, instead of simply the elites within each respective state. Notable among these institutions are the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group and the World Economic Forum.
The prevalence of financial, industrial and corporate dynasties within these institutions has ensured that such families have significant political influence, and have – moreover – played pivotal roles in the construction and evolution of our modern state-capitalist society. Not coincidentally, with the preservation and propagation of modern dynastic power has come the preservation and propagation of modern imperialism, no longer established as a formal colonial system of control. Instead, it is represented as a complex inter-dependency and interaction of institutions and ideologies that manifest as a system of globalized ‘informal imperialism’, with the United States at the center.
Some of the names of these dynasties are better known than others, like Rothschild and Rockefeller, while others are better known within their own countries or barely known at all, like Agnelli (in Italy), Wallenberg (in Sweden) and Desmarais (in Canada). Each family dynasty has their own unique history, with power concentrated in particular companies or family offices. Many, if not most, of these families also have significant connections with each other, acting as joint shareholders in various companies, sitting on the same boards and mingling in the same social circles. They cooperate and they compete with each other for influence in Globalization’s ‘Game of Thrones’.

RE-POSTED FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT READ, OR WANT TO REFRESH THEIR MINDS.
INSANITY: THE BELIEF THAT DEMOCRACY AND VOTING WORKS IN SPITE OF THE FACTS.
By Judge Dale, retired
The foreign agents who purport to be our public officials ( not servants) are responsible for eliminating the strength of the American Labor Unions, the elimination of our jobs, the erosion of our inalienable rights; have instigated every war or conflict we have ever become involved with in history and they convinced us that it was the other guys fault! They have converted us into corporate fictions, and sold us as securities to foreign corporate investors, and have denied us our heritage! Everything they have been doing is designed to undermine our freedom, liberty and representative form of government!
From Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, Air Force Technical Manual (1979):
Experience has proven that the simplest method of securing a silent weapon and gaining control of the public is to keep the public undisciplined and ignorant of the basic system [by] . . . – disengaging their minds – engaging their emotions – rewriting history and law and exposing the public to the deviant creation . . .
Excerpts from The Matrix and the US ConstitutionPg 7
The Constitution is not for “We the People.” As mentioned before, the
Colonists never presented the Constitution to vote on its passage and
approval because the Constitution was never written for them and has been rewritten two more times since then; but only our government officials know about that! And now, so do you!
Did you know that 98% of the Law Schools in America and England do not include Constitutional Law as a part of their law curriculum? The reason for this phenomenon is because Constitutional Law does not apply to or affect the enforcement of statutes, codes or administrative regulations, which have replaced constitutional law, the common law, public law and penal law and which have been designed to control you.
The corporate governments and their courts, only have jurisdiction over corporations. Corporations have no rights or jurisdiction over living people and are only provided considerations, which have been pre-negotiated in contracts by their directors. Otherwise, they’re governed totally by commercial law, and so are you!
The IMF holds the controlling interest in all the banks in America! The IMF is the Rockefeller and Rothschild Empires, along with the eleven wealthiest families in the World.
Not one penny of the Direct Federal Income Tax, paid through the IRS, is ever for or deposited into the United States Treasury. Those Taxes are deposited into the Federal Reserve Bank for the Masters use. The IRS belongs to the International Monetary Fund, who also owns the Federal Reserve Bank.
The state constitutions were rewritten again during the Clinton Administration, except now they are called the Constitutions of Interdependence! These Constitutions read just like the Declaration of Independence, except that “We the People” have been eliminated.
To take a loyalty oath to support, defend and obey the Constitution now is to swear an oath to your Masters; to be ever loyal to them! “Slaves you are and slaves you will ever be!”
Equity Law, which once controlled Americas’ Corporate Courts, has been replaced with Admiralty/Maritime Law, pursuant to Title 28 of the United States Code and the Judiciary Act of 1789. This is the Law of Merchants and Sailors.
We are not free men; we are slaves, and bound to our Masters by adhesion contracts and secret Trusts. The goal of the masters and their (agents) our elected officials, is to keep the people oppressed and subservient to them!
The more regulations, statutes and codes created, and the greater the number of regulatory officers and agencies created to enforce them; the greater the Masters control over their Slaves and that is mind control by force and threat of force, by the very people we rely on, to protect and serve!
According to the Federal Registry, USA INC now has 450 “agencies” making rules, regulations and statutes. FDR created the Federal Registry in 1935 by an Executive Order . . . during a so-called “national emergency”. These agencies represent an unelected fourth branch of the corporate government.
WHILE EVIDENCE THAT THE ‘GOVERNMENT’ IS JUST A COMMERCIAL ENTERPRISE IS EVERYWHERE, WE HAVE BEEN ‘CONDITIONED’ NOT TO SEE IT!
Did you know that 98% of the Law Schools in America and England do not include Constitutional Law as a part of their law curriculum? The reason for this phenomenon is because Constitutional Law does not apply to or affect the enforcement of statutes, codes or administrative regulations, which have replaced constitutional law, the common law, public law and penal law and which have been designed to control you.
(Pg 8, Judge Dale’s The Matrix and the Constitution)
Retired Judge Dale has exposed the truth about our history and our legal system. From Judge Dale’s The Great American Adventure:
The Federal and State Governments are not real. They are privately owned corporations [listed on Dun and Bradstreet called governments. . . and the law is nothing more than their corporate regulations called statutes. (pg 102)
These corporate laws and regulations are called statutes and their affect and control over human beings is deceptively obtained by consent through civil contracts. [See #5 below.] (pg 99) Everything they have been doing is one gigantic fraud and all of it at our expense! (pg 53)
‘We the People’ have been deliberately deceived!
By Preston James
It can now be disclosed how Lee Wanta was criminally set up and why the spurious charges based on this authorized set up are completely false and Unconstitutional.
An attempt was made by a German Intel crony of the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) to secretly deposit $500,000 in a bank account of Wanta to entrap him in a “bribe.”
This failed because the deposit was sent to the wrong bank and Wanta had no account there.
Supporting documents show that this money was immediately returned to the depositor after a $10.00 fee was deducted for “bank return processing”, per instructions of Leo Wanta.
Why is this story so important? Why should it be shared with friends and associates and widely dispersed?
If the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) had not gained power in a secret Coup de Etat by attempting to assassinate President Reagan, and if Lee Wanta had not been falsely jailed in Switzerland with no actual charges and then brought to Wisconsin and jailed on phony non-existent income tax charges, America would not be in the major economic turmoil and ruin it is in now.
The private Federal Reserve Bank would have been dissolved and all Money creation would have once again been absorbed by the US Department of the Treasury and we would have real, Constitutional Money based on Gold and Silver and actual resources, not based on debt and phony promises.
American Industry would not have been exported out of America under NAFTA, CAFTA, WTO and GATT. Heavy Industry and manufacturing inside America would have grown dramatically as would the actual number of high-paying, full-benefit job opportunities. This would have been a direct result of Wanta’s financing and building a state-of-the-art transnational High Speed Maglev rail system, or as Wanta calls it, “Super Train.”
There would have been no 9/11/01 Gladio-style False-Flag attack on the World Trade center and the Pentagon, no illegal, Unconstitutional, unprovoked, undeclared foreign wars of aggression, no Renditions and Black Prison Torture Sites, No Bush, No Cheney, No Homeland Security, No TSA, no Big Bankster Bailouts (all illegal and Unconstitutional).
And there would have been no thousands of dead, horribly wounded and sick American Soldiers all used as cannon fodder fighting “other nation’s wars,” in this case Israel’s Wars.
Breaking Internet Truth is Coffin Nails to the WZs, the BCC and the International Zionist Crime Syndicate (IZCS).
When you read this article please understand that this kind of Alternative Breaking News is coffin Nails to the Ruling Crime Cabal in both of its forms. Truth spreads like lightning and once folks realize the game that most all our politicians and USG Officials are bought and owned by K-Street Lobbyists, populism will emerge in the masses and these forces of pure evil, oppression and tyranny will be reversed. This story can now be disclosed for the first time publicly because of the weakening of the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) and World Zionism (WZ).
New Evidence has emerged that completely vindicates Lee Wanta of Wisconsin State tax related charges which are now shown to have been 100% phony…a set up by the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC).
As the both the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC aka the “Fourth Reich”) and the NeoBolshevik Forces (aka the NeoCons, PNACers and Israeli-American “Israeli-First Dual Citizens) are weakening domestically and internationally, documents have now emerged completely vindicating Ambassador Lee Wanta from the State of Wisconsin’s Spurious income tax assessments, criminal charges and false allegations. Numerous consultations with Ambassador Wanta for this article and copies of source documents were obtained.
Ambassador Wanta was wrongly and criminally set up by the BCC to keep him from completing his assignments given by President Ronald Reagan.
These newly disclosed documents make it quite clear that Ambassador Wanta was wrongly “set up” (framed) by the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC), wrongly thrown in jail with no charges in Switzerland and then brought to Wisconsin and jailed on phony tax-related charges. Of course Ambassador Wanta had diplomatic immunity at the time, the financial reach and power of the BCC was great enough to induce Swiss and Wisconsin judges to engage in clearly illegal acts.
This was done to prevent Lee Wanta’s efforts on behalf of President Reagan to expose their major secret role in high level drug trafficking into America and their infiltration and hijacking of major USG institutions such as the Department of Justice, the Judiciary including the Supreme Court and the Department of State.
President Reagan had two primary Obsessions which ruled his life as President.
He was well aware of the mass murder and torture of many millions under Russian Bolshevism and understood its origins and source: the City of London Zionist private Central Banksters who were themselves the creation of the World Zionists (WZs). He realized that the Russian Communist System could not exist or last as long as it was supported by the City of London Banksters and their Stateside franchisee the Wall Street Banksters and also US Aid provided by Congress.
President Reagan also knew about the US Congress approving a large Bill to finance tractor engine factory in Russia which was being used to manufacture engines for Russian Tanks and realized this was one example of many supports provided by the western Central Banksters and Congress at the expense of the America taxpayers.
In order to understand President Reagan’s motivation, it is important to know that he had a great love for America the Constitutional Republic and was an “America First” believer of the highest order. Lee Wanta shared withe the President these same values and was also deeply committed to stop the the Criminal Cabal’s parasitical hold over America, and to break the bondage of the City of London zionist private central banking cartel which produced massive debt…the kind of debt resulting in slavery for Americans.
President Reagan was furious about the support given to the Evil Empire by Congress and Wall Street and consulted with Lee Wanta to design a plan to take down the Soviet Union. Lee Wanta devised a genius plan to achieve President Reagan’s objective, but a plan that would provide a win-win rather than a lose-lose result…a plan that would prevent another Cold War and provide a means to restructure the Russian Government in a way that would be non-aggressive.
President Reagan authorized Lee Wanta as his special Secret Agent under the Totten Doctrine to fully implement the Wanta plan and provided the temporary financing…$150 billion USD which was repaid by Wanta to Treasury within six months. For a complete description of the Plan and how it was actuated, read Wanta’s biography written by Marilyn M. Barnewall, http://wantarevelations.com/wanta-black-swan-white-hat/

President Reagan’s Second Obsession.
President Reagan had a second obsession which determined many of his actions and presidential policies. He was angry at the erosion of American Industrial might and the weakening of the US Military and its use to fight other people’s wars in Korea and Vietnam. He blamed it on Globalism and the infiltration of NeoBolshevik entities through various espionage fronts into America which had hijacked much of American Intel, the Judiciary, Congress, the Public Educational System and the Major Mass media.
President Reagan discussed this thoroughly with Wanta and a plan emerged that would completely revitalize the American Economy by eliminating the private Federal Reserve Bank. This action would make all US Banking and money Constitutional – a bit like what President Andrew Jackson did when he took the banking system back into the US Treasury department in the 1800s, eliminating the second central bank in America’s history (prior to the establishment of the federal Reserve System). It was decided that a national high-speed rail system that was state-of-the-art Maglev in design would be built. This would not only revitalize American heavy industry and manufacturing, but would also provide an immediate two million well-paid jobs (will full benefits) for American workers.
WZ’s had two main Cutouts doing their dirty work inside America, setting up its asset stripping and demise, all as part of their obsession with revenge for America winning the Revolutionary War and diminishing the power of the British Empire.
Of course what few realize, even those close to all this and an integral part of it, is that the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) was the most prominent of two main Cutouts in America working for the private City of London World Zionist (WZ) Central Banksters. It is well known by American Intel insiders that the BCC was able to set up its own private CIA within the CIA and its own secret black ops, special ops, paramilitary and mercenary forces and has been functioning as its own Secret Shadow Government within the Secret Shadow Government (SSG).
The BCC is actually the Scherff Crime cabal aka the Fourth Reich in America and one of the two main action agents of the WZ’s who run the City of London private Zionist Central Banking.
Also few knew that the Bush Cabal should correctly be referred to as the Scherff Crime Cabal (1) aka the Fourth Reich and is the opposite side of the same coin as the Bolsheviks and NeoBolsheviks (Current form).
These neoBolsheviks (aka IZCS, NeoCons, PNACers and Israeli-American “Isreali-First” Dual Citizens) and the BCC were both created by the World Zionists (WZs) who also created the private City of London Zionist Central Banksters and use them as action-agents and Cutouts. The leaders that run Israel are technically NeoBolsheviks and have been used to hijack America working HAND-IN-HAND with the Fourth Reich (Bush Crime Cabal – BCC) as partners in major RICO crime. The fact that the WZs use apparently conflicting forces makes this all very difficult to decipher, but this method of bifurcation of the same force into “opposing groups” that really cooperated
Both the Fourth Reich and the IZCS were secret creations of the World Zionists (WZs aka Old Black Nobility) who specialize in ancient Babylonian, luciferian Black Arts/Black Magick, and worship of the ancient “gods” of Greece and Rome. The WZs covertly created the private City of London Zionist Central Banksters as well as its American Franchisee the privately owned Federal Reserve System. All these entities are still under control of the WZ’s but their strength is eroding by the day and their exposure and end is imminent due to the worldwide Populism/Truth Movements that are emerging thanks to the worldwide Internet. This also means the BCC and the Neo-Bolshevik IZCS in America are losing power by the day and their end is imminent.
World Zionism (WZ) is now in its death throes and is cornered like a Rabid Dog.
To say that these large Cutouts of the City of London Zionist Central Banksters are in a panic and desperate would be an understatement. This can make them especially dangerous and desperate and they may be considering another major Gladio-Style False-Flag attack inside America, perhaps this time the nuking of a major American City. The good news is that we have some America-Firsters in key position in Defense who are completely briefed on all this and are now taking extensive actions to prevent this.
The huge new problem they face is the millions of truth-seekers which have emerged all over the world because of the Alternative news published on the Internet, allowing truth to spread like wildfire. Real Truth resonates with the masses who learn of it via the Internet and cannot be suppressed no matter what the habitual USG and Controlled Major Mass Media liars say to the contrary.
The Masses all over the world are catching on the WZ’s use of staged Gladio-Style False-Flag attacks and the jig is just about up for the WZs.
A significant proportion of the public now realize that 9/11/01 attack was a Gladio-Style False-Flag attack planned and deployed by the NeoCons, PNACers, Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens Traitors and a small faction within the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) and the USAF (2). Many also now realize that the so-called Boston Marathon Bombing and the so-called Sandy Hook shooting were staged, PLAY-ACTED false-flags using highly paid “crises actors” and were virtual only. Yes, there were no legs blown off at the Boston Marathon, puffer bombs only, no injuries at all.(3) And there were no dead kids, no dead teachers, no dead Lanzas at Sandy Hook, and no-one so far can even prove any Lanzas ever existed for real. In fact it has been shown conclusively that the Sandy Hook School was closed down two years before the supposed shooting and was used for storage only.
So now we have millions of Truthers all over the world just waiting for the staging of another Gladio-Style False-Flag attack and they will decipher its lies almost instantly if and when such occurs. This is a big worry for the WZs, the BCC and the IZCS and their only way out may be to attempt to provoke Putin into a nuclear WW3 or provoke a major Civil War inside America and start Mass-Murdering the Civilians.
The World Zionists (WZs) have used Babylonian Money-Magick to make money from nothing, steal the masses hard earn production and wealth through Unconstitutional money-fraud and illegal taxation, and use the extracted wealth to bribe, buy up or compromise most members of Congress and almost every Top USG official and Federal Judge.
FIRST, The WZs infiltrated and hijacked the Central Banking of London. Then they came after America in 1913. They hijacked America’s economy by passing the Federal Reserve Act. They did this by using Luciferian Psi-power obtained through practicing Babylonian Black-Magick Arts to make “money” from nothing and massive, interest bearing phony debt owed to them by the masses. With the power to issue all the synthetic, phony simulated “money” they desire, the WZs (using the IZCS as their muscle) have been able to buy up and obtain control almost every single Member of Congress, almost every Federal Judge and most USG officials. This was all done under the brute but covertly applied force of Federal Reserve Debt notes presented as real money, but obviously the phony Federal Reserve Notes we all carry in our purses and wallets does not meet the directives regarding money provided by the US Constitution.
The Fourth Reich Side of the Coin (Bush Crime Cabal – BCC) specializes in massive income from illegal narcotics trafficking, especially into American urban centers and has formed long standing partnerships with the major Drug Cartels. Using “Police Actions” rather than declared wars as the Constitution requires, the Cabal began in Vietnam developing drug sources and routes to fill its pockets… and the poppy fields in Afghanistan offer evidence that this practice continues.
The WZ’s Secret Globalist War against “American Goyim” using neo-Bolshevik Cutouts.
The NeoBolshevik side of the coin specializes in money frauds like the Mortgage Bubble and related Fraud and is the vehicle to buy Politicians and USG officials through their IZCS espionage fronts. The NeoBolsheviks also specialize in staging terrorist acts as false flag, financing training and running terror all over the world to start wars and justify military and police state build ups. In America they have built up their own large internal army: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The goal of DHS is to transform America into the largest open air prison camp in the world and the eventual systematic, serial mass murder of every single “American Goyim”.
The BCC has its own CIA within the CIA and has its own private special ops and mercenaries deployed all over the world and periodically detailed to various other EU and NATO Intel Agencies.
Almost all of Congress is owned and controlled by the IZCS’s espionage fronts inside America such as AIPAC, B’nai B’rith, the ADL and the SPLC. Obviously all top individuals in these organizations and those politicians and officials they “own” should be indicted and tried for Espionage. Numerous involved Israeli-American “Israeli-First” dual Citizens who are part of these espionage fronts as well as many NeoCons and PNACers who are American Citizens should be indicted and tried for RICO, Treason and Sedition. Note that all these offenses are considered potentially capital offenses which can be punishable by Execution if immunity is not given for testifying against their “higher ups”.
Major RICO crimes, Mass-murder, Espionage, Treason and Sedition have been committed by NeoCons, PNACers, Israeli-American “Israeli-First” Dual Citizens, Top Officials of the Executive, the JCS, the USAF and NORAD regarding the 9/11/01 Gladio-Style False-Flag attack.
And importantly a significant number of NeoCons, PNACers and Israeli-American “Israeli-First” dual Citizens should be indicted for their part in staging and deploying the Gladio-style false-Flag attacks on 9/11/01. This was Treason, Sedition, Mass-murder, and represents major crimes against humanity. These folks should also be indicted for waging Unconstitutional, undeclared, unprovoked, illegal wars of aggression which are also crimes against humanity and are just as bad as the Nazis and Bolsheviks ever were. It is important to note that Bolshevism was also a creation of the WZs and was financed by the private City of London Zionist Central Banksters at their direction just like the Fourth Reich was created by reconstituting the Third Reich under Operation Paperclip.
It is important to note that not all Zionists are Judaics (far from it), nor are all Judaics World Zionists or involved in the IZCS, in fact a very small number fall into this category.
It is now known that the Bush Crime Cabal (BCC) was using American Intel along with other foreign Intel to traffic massive quantities of illegal drugs into America to raise “off the books” funding for Black Ops and continuing Third Reich anti-gravity and super-weapons research. And it is now known that the BCC infiltrated and hijacked most of American Intel and used it to deploy their own secret NWO Agenda on behalf of the City of London Zionist Central Banksters and their franchisees the large Wall Street Banks.
It can now be disclosed that President Reagan mandated Lee Wanta to gather evidence on this Crime Cabal so that they could be brought to American Justice.
And just like VP Lyndon B Johnson who was facing major criminal prosecution and complete loss of any future political office, GHWB also was facing complete exposure and criminal prosecution. It became vital for the Bush Crime Cabal to “neutralize” both President Reagan and Lee Wanta, President Reagan’s personal Secret Agent under the Totten Doctrine [Pursuant to : Totten Doctrine ( 92 U.S. 105, 107 (1875)].
Unlike JFK, President Reagan survived an assassination attempt by a Secret Service Agent and (a BCC Operative and Bush crony) but his power was already deeply eroded by the BCC. This was done by using its massive drug proceeds and American Intel Power to deeply infiltrate and compromise almost every area of the USG including the US Department of Justice, Treasury, Judiciary, and Congress.
Sad to say, many supporters and aides surrounding President Reagan from the Republican Party were also willing to sell him out for money and power gained from siding with the BCC. To do otherwise was perceived as a quick way to ruin their Political Career one way or another.
Completely Spurious charges were falsified and brought against Ambassador Lee Wanta who had Diplomatic Immunity and under International Law was not supposed to be arrested for any reason, even a false one.
It can now be disclosed how Lee Wanta was criminally set up and why the spurious charges based on this authorized set up are completely false and Unconstitutional. An attempt was made by a German Intel crony of the BCC to secretly deposit $500,000 in a bank account of Wanta to entrap him in a “bribe”. This failed because the deposit was sent to the wrong bank and Wanta had no account there. Supporting documents show that this money was immediately returned to the depositor after a $10.00 banking fee was deducted for “bank return processing”, per instructions of Leo Wanta.
Furthermore, Leo Wanta (S-31-IANA / Office of Internal Affairs – New Orleans, LA USA) immediately transmitted said DEPOSIT GUARANTY NATIONAL BANK correspondence, dated June 24, 1988, to the United States Customs Service, Resident Agent LeCates, Special Agent Don Meiger / Intelligence, FBIngram ( L.E. Wanta ) – as the Remitter is Kurt Becker, our U.S. Federal Target in his attempts to procure, smuggle, traffic and deliver USA manufactured “ Nuclear Memory Chips “ to Yongbyon, North Korea – as unlawfully organized and financed thru Viola Trading resources, as authorized by KGB Chief – Andras Szasz of Budapest, also President of Hungary Chamber of Commerce, [ Plantronik GMBH ] as documented within U.S. Custom Services Investigative Documentation [NASHVILLE, TN / AmeriChina Global Management – a Title 18 Section 6 authorized multi-jurisdictional INTEL Operation, mandated under President R. W. Reagan Executive order No. 12333 ].
Ambassador Wanta makes a surprise appearance on an International Radio Show listened to by millions around the world.
On May 3, 2014 Marilyn M. Barnewall, Lee Wanta’s biographer appeared on the International Coast To Coast Radio Program. Ambassador Wanta made a surprise appearance and clarified Operation StillPoint, the actual Operation he deployed on behalf of President Reagan and the United States of America. This is a very informative and important program, and those who have time and are interested will likely find very revealing.

Despite popular belief, very few things in our world are exactly what they seem. That which is painted as righteous is often evil. That which is painted as kind is often malicious. That which is painted as simple is often complex. That which is painted as complex often ends up being disturbingly two dimensional. Regardless, if a person is willing to look only at the immediate surface of a thing, he will never understand the content of the thing.
This fact is nowhere more evident than in the growing “tensions” between the elites of the West and the elites of the East over the crisis in Ukraine.
I am continually astonished at the refusal of many otherwise intelligent people to consider the evidence or even the possibility that there is, in reality, no fundamental political or philosophical conflict between the power brokers of the East and the West. As I outlined in great detail inRussia Is Dominated By Global Banks, Too, the truth is they are both working toward the same goal; and both ultimately benefit from an engineered and theatrical display of international brinksmanship.
Russia, like the United States, is utterly beholden to globalist financiers through organizations like the International Monetary Fund and the Bank for International Settlements. Russia’s global economic adviser in matters ranging from investment image to privatization is none other thanGoldman Sachs.
Goldman Sachs has also worked closely with the Ukrainian government since 2011, and it started its advisory work with Ukraine for free. (Whenever Goldman Sachs does something for free, one should take special note.) Banking elites have been working both sides of the fence during the Russia versus Ukraine charade.
Russia has continued to borrow billions of dollars from Western banks, including Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse, year after year, proving that they are not averse in the slightest to working closely with “evil Western robber barons”.
Russian President Vladimir Putin meets with Mr. New-World-Order himself, Henry Kissinger, on a regular basis; and according to Putin’s press secretary, they are “old friends.” Putin’s meetings with Kissinger began almost immediately after he first took power in 2000.
Putin’s relationship with Kissinger has been so pronounced that the Russian Foreign Ministry gave Kissinger an honorary doctorate in diplomacy, and Putin placed Kissinger at the head of a bilateral “working group” — along with former KGB head and multilateralist (globalist) Gen. Yevgeny Primakov — dealing with foreign policy.
In more recent news, I would also remind pro-Putin cheerleaders that Putin and the Kremlin first pushed for the IMF to take control of the Ukrainian economy, and the IMF is now demanding that Ukraine fight Russia in exchange for financial support. This might seem like irony to more foolhardy observers; but to those who are aware of the false East/West paradigm, it is all the part of a greater plan for consolidation of power.
Clearly, Putin and Russia are just two more puppet pieces on the globalist chessboard, pitted against other puppets in the West in a grand theater designed to distract and divide the masses through chaos. As Kissinger points out, in crisis there is opportunity.
What is the goal? They’ve already told us, openly, on numerous occasions.
The first great prizes of the New World Order are a global currency and centralized economic control. The elites are not satisfied with quiet dominance of individual economies. They want complete political homogenization and the end of all sovereignty. Period. With a global currency in place, the steps towards global government become quick and small.
Heads of state from around the world, including Putin, as well as international bankers and IMF representatives have all publicly called for the IMF to take charge of the global economic system through its Special Drawing Rights currency program.
However, for the SDR to become a dominant currency, certain issues must be resolved. Here’s a short list.
The U.S. Dollar Must Fall
The dollar must lose its world reserve status, and most likely collapse in relative value, before the SDR can be elevated. This is where mainstream pundits lose track of the facts. For them, the dollar is an invincible monetary element, a currency product as infinite as time. Their normalcy bias prevents them from ever acknowledging the many weaknesses of the Federal Reserve note, including our country’s inability to ever service its more than $200 trillion debt. Others believe the dollar is the NWO currency, and that the globalists are somehow U.S.-centric. The evidence posted above suggests otherwise. Globalists have no loyalty to any nation or culture. Their only loyalty is to the progression of their own power. If sacrificing the dollar or the U.S. as a whole furthers that power, then they will have no problem cutting us loose like a rotting appendage.
A Liquidity Replacement Must Be Introduced
As my regular readers know, I have been covering China’s progression toward a decoupling from the U.S. economy for years. China, in my view, has always been the key to the elitist shift into a truly global currency mechanism. The primary argument in the mainstream against the idea of a dollar collapse is that there is no other currency with ample liquidity to take the dollar’s place. Well, in the past couple of years, this has changed.
China and the banks it controls have issued approximately $25 trillion in debt instruments and monetization. This is often referred to as a “debt bubble” created through panic and a weakness in China’s economy and a response to slowed quantitative easing in the United States. I would take a slightly different position. China began issuing Yuan denominated debt instruments in 2005, years before the mainstream had any inkling of the impending derivatives collapse. From then up to today, there has been no practical purpose for China to produce these Yuan denominated equities and securities, unless their target has always been to expand the Yuan market in a covert way.
I would say that China’s monetization has been carefully and deliberately engineered in order to lay the foundation for a massive liquidity spike in the Yuan. The argument that China’s incredible debt generation is a sign of impending collapse may be misguided. U.S. debt, including unfunded liabilities, absolutely dwarfs China’s $25 trillion. China’s Yuan debt has barely had time to accrue concrete interest. The U.S., on the other hand, is caught in an endless cycle of interest payments that are slowly but surely eating away the skeleton of our fiscal structure. If any economy is on the verge of implosion, it is that of the United States, not of China.
The Chinese need exponential Yuan circulation. They do not want the Yuan to replace the dollar; instead, they are preparing it for induction into the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights basket. WithChina set to become the world largest economy this year according to World Bank, their inclusion is assured.
But, when might this occur?
The IMF holds an international conference and policy meeting on the SDR every five years. During these meetings, the IMF decides if it will absorb a new currency into the basket and if it will expand the creation or circulation of SDRs around the world. Interestingly, the next IMF conference on the SDR just happens to be scheduled for the end of 2014 to the beginning of 2015.
Another strange coincidence: The U.S. Congress was supposed to vote on legislation for further capital allocations to the IMF by April. The vote never came. The new allocations were to fund an expansion of IMF programs and help with the greater inclusion of BRIC nations in governing decisions. If the U.S. government does not pass this legislation, Russia and other nations have demanded that the IMF move forward without the United States on reforms. At the very least, the U.S. would lose its veto power over IMF decisions. I believe that the timing of this is deliberate, that the U.S. is meant to lose its veto power and that the simultaneous SDR conference will announce the inclusion of the Chinese Yuan, setting the stage for the replacement of the dollar as world reserve.
The SDR will not immediately be issued as a commonly traded currency itself. Rather, the IMF will take over management of included currencies and denominate those currencies using SDR valuations. For example, $1 U.S. is worth only .64 SDR today. In the near future, I expect that the dollar will plummet in relation to the SDR’s value. We will still have our greenbacks when the IMF begins administrating our currency system, but the international and domestic worth of those greenbacks will fall to pennies. In turn, other currencies with stronger economic positions will rise in worth relative to the SDR.
I believe one of the primary determinations in a currency’s value compared to the SDR will be a country’s stockpile of gold. This is why Russia and China in particular have been purchasing precious metals at an unheard-of rate (and why U.S. gold reserves have never been audited). The IMF itself is one of the world’s largest holders of physical gold, with nearly 3,000 metric tons (officially). With the crash of the dollar system and investors clamoring for a reliable hedge to protect whatever savings they have left, gold could conceivably skyrocket into the $5,000 to $10,000 per-ounce range. Governments holding the metal will be favorably placed during an implementation of the SDR as the new reserve standard.
A Cover Event Must Be Created
The centralization of power is best achieved during moments of bewildering calamity. The conjuring of crises is one of the oldest methods of elitist dominance. Not only can they confuse and frighten the masses into malleability, but they can also ride to the public’s rescue as heroes and saviors later on. The Hegelian dialectic is the mainstay of tyrants.
The destruction of the dollar and the institution of a global economic bureaucracy are not actions that can be executed openly by international financiers. These events will coincide with extreme catastrophe, likely worse than the Great Depression era, with millions upon millions of people losing the ability to financially support themselves and their families. Crime, death and public discontent will surely follow. People will be looking for someone to blame. This is where the false East/West paradigm comes in.
It is widely expected that as sanctions snowball between Russia and the U.S. that the dollar will end up on the chopping block. China has asserted its support for Russia in opposition to NATO interference in Ukraine. The stage has been set. I have warned for quite some time that the development of East/West tensions would be used as a cover for a collapse of the dollar system. I have warned that among the American media this collapse would be blamed on an Eastern dump of foreign exchange reserves and treasuries, resulting in a global domino-effect ending U.S. world reserve status. In turn, the international community would be conditioned to see this as the mere bumbling of a spoiled America gone power-mad, rather than the result of a covert program of economic destabilization. This might lead to all-out war or a fiscal firestorm that leaves much of the world crippled and desperate for aid.
In either case, the elitist plan is to use scapegoats and false enemies to draw our attention away from the real culprits: the international banks themselves. Make no mistake: This fight is not about President Barack Obama, it is not about Putin and it is not even about the Federal Reserve. These men are tools, errand boys, public mascots. Do not be fooled by the global stage play being perpetrated. Whatever happens in Ukraine and whatever happens between Russia, China and the West, there are only two real sides to this battle: the elitist establishment, and those who are smart enough to recognize their poison.

Michelle Obama cancelled the commencement speech she was scheduled to give at a Kansas high school after nearly 2,000 people signed a petition protesting her appearance.
Over the weekend we learned that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has cancelled her appearance at Rutgers University due to protests. Condoleezza wrote,
“Commencement should be a time of joyous celebration for the graduates and their families,” Ms. Rice wrote in a Facebook post. “Rutgers’ invitation to me to speak has become a distraction for the university community at this very special time.”
Rutgers faculty and anti-war activists berated the university administration for offering Rice the speaking slot, citing her “efforts to mislead the American people about the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.”
That cancellation came only one week after Attorney General Eric Holder’s last-minute cancellation of his speech at a police academy graduation to 42 cadets. Holder’s cancellation comes on the heels of the House holding him in contempt for road-blocking an investigation into a covert gun-running sting called Fast and Furious. His appearances prompted threats of protests, with opponents noting that Holder was an “ironic” choice of speaker because of his “tactics of obfuscation and redirection of blame” as attorney general.
The recent cancellations come after many US leaders have had to cancel appearances as people all over the world wake up to their violent and criminal ways. Former Vice President Dick Cheney has had to cancel multiple appearances, for example, in Canada because it was “too dangerous” for him, a former leader of the “free world.”
“Basically they felt that it would be a major security issue if Vice President Cheney came back to Canada,” said Ryan Ruppert, president of Spectre Live Corp, which was promoting Cheney’s speech.
The first time, in 2011, Cheney’s appearance at a $500-a-plate book club dinner in Vancouver last September had a shadow cast over it by protestors who blocked the entrance to the venue and were beat by police. Cheney had to stay inside while police dispersed the crowd.
The protestors were calling for Cheney’s arrest over war crimes.
George W. Bush had to cancel a visit to Switzerland where he was to address a Jewish charity gala. He was worried about possible legal action against him for alleged torture as pressure has been mounting on the Swiss government to arrest him and open a criminal investigation if he enters into the country. Swiss judicial officials have said that Bush would still enjoy a certain diplomatic immunity as a former head of state.
In 2002 Henry Kissinger cancelled a trip to Brazil because of human rights protests. Kissinger was even sought by French police during a visit to Paris in a case involving a French citizen murdered by the US-backed military dictatorship in Chile.
The state as a façade is fading as the Internet helps people wake up to the true terrorists and criminals. We expect more of these types of protests to cancel future events in the US and elsewhere, and many of the top criminals in the US government will continue to have a hard time travelling internationally without being arrested for their crimes.
MILLENNIALS DISTRUST GOVERNMENT
A new poll surveying young Americans’ political attitudes released by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics Tuesday found millennials have less trust in government than ever before – that includes the Presidency, the military, Congress, the Supreme Court, and the federal government as a whole. The President and the military lost the most trust among young Americans with a seven point drop. The pollsters said the level of trust millennials have in “most American institutions tested in our survey” had dropped below even “last year’s historically low numbers.” Look at this dramatic drop:
The pollsters also created this chart showing young peoples’ levels of trust in almost every public institution. Across the board, the “commanding heights” of society are not trusted.
“Currently, less than one-in-four (24%) young Americans under the age of 30 say that they will ‘definitely be voting,’ in the upcoming midterm elections for Congress, a sharp decrease of 10 percentage points since the Fall,” the pollsters said. “During a similar time of the year in 2010, 31 percent of 18- to 29-year olds reported that they would definitely vote.”
The people are awakening and it is beautiful to watch.

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”—Martin Niemoller
Despite what some may think, the Constitution is no magical incantation against government wrongdoing. Indeed, it’s only as effective as those who abide by it. However, without courts willing to uphold the Constitution’s provisions when government officials disregard it and a citizenry knowledgeable enough to be outraged when those provisions are undermined, it provides little to no protection against SWAT team raids, domestic surveillance, police shootings of unarmed citizens, indefinite detentions, and the like.
Unfortunately, the courts and the police have meshed in their thinking to such an extent that anything goes when it’s done in the name of national security, crime fighting and terrorism. Consequently, America no longer operates under a system of justice characterized by due process, an assumption of innocence, probable cause and clear prohibitions on government overreach and police abuse. Instead, our courts of justice have been transformed into courts of order, advocating for the government’s interests, rather than championing the rights of the citizenry, as enshrined in the Constitution.
Just recently, for example, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in U.S. v. Westhoven that driving too carefully, with a rigid posture, taking a scenic route, and having acne are sufficient reasons for a police officer to suspect you of doing something illegal, detain you, search your car, and arrest you—even if you’ve done nothing illegal to warrant the stop in the first place.
In that same vein, the U.S. Supreme Court declared in a 5-4 ruling in Navarette v. California that police officers can, under the guise of “reasonable suspicion,” stop cars and question drivers based solely on anonymous tips, no matter how dubious, and whether or not they themselves witnessed any troubling behavior.
And then you have the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear Hedges v. Obama, a legal challenge to the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), thereby affirming that the President and the U.S. military can arrest and indefinitely detain individuals, including American citizens, based on a suspicion that they might be associated with or aiding terrorist organizations.
All three cases reflect a mindset in which the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution, once the map by which we navigated sometimes hostile terrain, has been unceremoniously booted out of the runaway car that is our government, driven over and left for road kill on the side of the road. All that can be seen in the rear view mirror are the tire marks on its ragged frame.
What we are dealing with, as I document in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, is a run-away government hyped up on its own power, whose policies are dictated more by paranoia than need. Making matters worse, “we the people” have become so gullible, so easily distracted, and so out-of-touch that we are ignoring the warning signs all around us and failing to demand that government officials of all stripes—the White House, Congress, the courts, the military, law enforcement, the endless parade of bureaucrats, etc.—respect our rights and abide by the rule of law.
The Supreme Court’s refusal to hear the NDAA indefinite detention case—which challenged whether the government can lawfully lock up American citizens who might be deemed extremists or terrorists (the government likes to use these words interchangeably) for criticizing the government—is one such warning sign that we would do well to heed.
The building blocks are already in place for such an eventuality: the surveillance networks, fusion centers and government contractors already monitor what is being said by whom; government databases track who poses a potential threat to the government’s power; the militarized police, working in conjunction with federal agencies, coordinate with the federal government when it’s time to round up the troublemakers; the courts sanction the government’s methods, no matter how unlawful; and the detention facilities, whether private prisons or FEMA internment camps, to lock up the troublemakers.
For those who can read the writing on the wall, it’s all starting to make sense: the military drills carried out in major American cities, the VIPR inspections at train depots and bus stations, the SWAT team raids on unsuspecting homeowners, the Black Hawk helicopters patrolling American skies, the massive ammunition purchases by various federal agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Education, the IRS and the Social Security Administration.
Viewed in conjunction with the government’s increasing use of involuntary commitment laws to declare individuals mentally ill and lock them up in psychiatric wards for extended periods of time, the NDAA’s provision allowing the military to arrest and indefinitely detain anyone, including American citizens, only codifies this unraveling of our constitutional framework.
Throw in the profit-driven corporate incentive to jail Americans in private prisons, as well as the criminalizing of such relatively innocent activities as holding Bible studies in one’s home or sharing unpasteurized goat cheese with members of one’s community, and it becomes clear that “we the people” have become enemies of the state. Thus, it’s no longer a question of whether the government will lock up Americans for First Amendment activity but when. (It’s particularly telling that the government’s lawyers, when pressed for an assurance that those exercising their First Amendment rights in order to criticize the government would not be targeted under the NDAA, refused to provide one.)
History shows that the U.S. government is not averse to locking up its own citizens for its own purposes. One need only go back to the 1940s, when the federal government proclaimed that Japanese-Americans, labeled potential dissidents, could be put in concentration (a.k.a. internment) camps based only upon their ethnic origin, to see the lengths the federal government will go to in order to maintain “order” in the homeland. The U.S. Supreme Court validated the detention program in Korematsu v. US (1944), concluding that the government’s need to ensure the safety of the country trumped personal liberties. That decision has never been overturned.
In fact, the creation of detention camps domestically has long been part of the government’s budget and operations, falling under the jurisdiction of FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FEMA’s murky history dates back to the 1970s, when President Carter created it by way of an executive order merging many of the government’s disaster relief agencies into one large agency. During the 1980s, however, reports began to surface of secret military-type training exercises carried out by FEMA and the Department of Defense. Code named Rex-84, 34 federal agencies, including the CIA and the Secret Service, were trained on how to deal with domestic civil unrest.
FEMA’s role in creating top-secret American internment camps is well-documented. But be careful who you share this information with: it turns out that voicing concerns about the existence of FEMA detention camps is among the growing list of opinions and activities which may make a federal agent or government official think you’re an extremist (a.k.a. terrorist), or sympathetic to terrorist activities, and thus qualify you for indefinite detention under the NDAA. Also included in that list of “dangerous” viewpoints are advocating states’ rights, believing the state to be unnecessary or undesirable, “conspiracy theorizing,” concern about alleged FEMA camps, opposition to war, organizing for “economic justice,” frustration with “mainstream ideologies,” opposition to abortion, opposition to globalization, and ammunition stockpiling.
Now if you’re going to have internment camps on American soil, someone has to build them. Thus, in 2006, it was announced that Kellogg Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, had been awarded a $385 million contract to build American detention facilities. Although the government and Halliburton were not forthcoming about where or when these domestic detention centers would be built, they rationalized the need for them in case of “an emergency influx of immigrants, or to support the rapid development of new programs” in the event of other emergencies such as “natural disasters.”
Of course, these detention camps will have to be used for anyone viewed as a threat to the government, and that includes political dissidents. So it’s no coincidence that the U.S. government has, since the 1980s, acquired and maintained, without warrant or court order, a database of names and information on Americans considered to be threats to the nation. As Salon reports, this database, reportedly dubbed “Main Core,” is to be used by the Army and FEMA in times of national emergency or under martial law to locate and round up Americans seen as threats to national security. As of 2008, there were some 8 million Americans in the Main Core database.
Fast forward to 2009, when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released two reports, one on “Rightwing Extremism,” which broadly defines rightwing extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely,” and one on “Leftwing Extremism,” which labeled environmental and animal rights activist groups as extremists. Both reports use the words terrorist and extremist interchangeably. That same year, the DHS launched Operation Vigilant Eagle, which calls for surveillance of military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, characterizing them as extremists and potential domestic terrorist threats because they may be “disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war.”
These reports indicate that for the government, so-called extremism is not a partisan matter. Anyone seen as opposing the government—whether they’re Left, Right or somewhere in between—is a target, which brings us back, full circle, to where we started, with the NDAA’s indefinite detention provision, whose language is so broad and vague as to implicate anyone critical of the government.
Unfortunately, we seem to be coming full circle on many fronts. Consider that a decade ago we were debating whether non-citizens—for example, so-called enemy combatants being held at Guantanamo Bay and Muslim-Americans rounded up in the wake of 9/11—were entitled to protections under the Constitution, specifically as they relate to indefinite detention. Americans weren’t overly concerned about the rights of non-citizens then, and now we’re the ones in the unenviable position of being targeted for indefinite detention by our own government.
Similarly, most Americans weren’t unduly concerned when the U.S. Supreme Court gave Arizona police officers the green light to stop, search and question anyone—ostensibly those fitting a particular racial profile—they suspect might be an illegal immigrant. Two years later, the cops have carte blanche authority to stop any individual, citizen and non-citizen alike, they suspect might be doing something illegal (mind you, in this age of overcriminalization, that could be anything from feeding the birds to growing exotic orchids).
Likewise, you still have a sizeable portion of the population today unconcerned about the government’s practice of spying on Americans, having been brainwashed into believing that if you’re not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about. It will only be a matter of time before they learn the hard way that in a police state, it doesn’t matter who you are or how righteous you claim to be—eventually, you will be lumped in with everyone else and everything you do will be “wrong” and suspect.
Martin Niemoller learned that particular lesson the hard way. A German military officer turned theologian, Niemoller was an early supporter of Hitler’s rise to power. It was only when Hitler threatened to attack the churches that Niemoller openly opposed the regime. For his efforts, Neimoller was arrested, charged with activities against the government, fined, detained, and eventually interned in the Sachsenhausen and Dachau concentration camps from 1938 to 1945.
As Niemoller reportedly replied when asked by his cellmate why he ever supported the Nazi party:
I find myself wondering about that too. I wonder about it as much as I regret it. Still, it is true that Hitler betrayed me… Hitler promised me on his word of honor, to protect the Church, and not to issue any anti-Church laws. He also agreed not to allow pogroms against the Jews… Hitler’s assurance satisfied me at the time…I am paying for that mistake now; and not me alone, but thousands of other persons like me.
In my ignorance, I never dreamed American’s would accept the loss of their privacy, freedom to travel when and where they pleased, or give up the right to protect their life and family, and these are just a small part of the intrusion’s into our life that have been surrendered without blood shed. America, what happened to you?
Guest Column by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute, http://www.rutherford.org
The United States pretends to be a home of freedom and democracy. In fact, the US is rapidly degenerating into a police state and a worse dystopia than George Orwell imagined in his book, 1984. John W. Whitehead describes below the prison that is being constructed for all of us. This prison is the work of many of our fellow citizens including scientists and entrepreneurs who have gained fame and fortune creating a prison for mankind. What were they thinking as they threw their energy and their lives into constructing a police state dystopia?
Putting Big Brother in the Driver’s Seat: V2V Transmitters, Black Boxes & Drones By John W. Whitehead
“It’s a future where you don’t forget anything…In this new future you’re never lost…We will know your position down to the foot and down to the inch over time…Your car will drive itself, it’s a bug that cars were invented before computers…you’re never lonely…you’re never bored…you’re never out of ideas… We can suggest where you go next, who to meet, what to read…What’s interesting about this future is that it’s for the average person, not just the elites.”—Google CEO Eric Schmidt on his vision of the future.
Time to buckle up your seatbelts, folks.
You’re in for a bumpy ride. We’re hurtling down a one-way road toward the Police State at mind-boggling speeds, the terrain is getting more treacherous by the minute, and we’ve passed all the exit ramps. From this point forward, there is no turning back, and the signpost ahead reads “Danger.
” Indeed, as I document in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, we’re about to enter a Twilight Zone of sorts, one marked by drones, smart phones, GPS devices, smart TVs, social media, smart meters, surveillance cameras, facial recognition software, online banking, license plate readers and driverless cars—all part of the interconnected technological spider’s web that is life in the American police state, and every new gadget pulls us that much deeper into the sticky snare.
In this Brave New World awaiting us, there will be no communication not spied upon, no movement untracked, no thought unheard. In other words, there will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
We’re on the losing end of a technological revolution that has already taken hostage our computers, our phones, our finances, our entertainment, our shopping, our appliances, and now, it’s focused its sights on our cars. As if the government wasn’t already able to track our movements on the nation’s highways and byways by way of satellites, GPS devices, and real-time traffic cameras, government officials are now pushing to require that all new vehicles come installed with black box recorders and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, ostensibly to help prevent crashes.
Yet strip away the glib Orwellian doublespeak, and what you will find is that these black boxes and V2V transmitters, which will not only track a variety of data, including speed, direction, location, the number of miles traveled, and seatbelt use, but will also transmit this data to other drivers, including the police, are little more than Trojan Horses, stealth attacks on our last shreds of privacy, sold to us as safety measures for the sake of the greater good, all the while poised to wreak havoc on our lives.
Black boxes and V2V transmitters are just the tip of the iceberg, though. The 2015 Corvette Stingray will be outfitted with a performance data recorder which “uses a camera mounted on the windshield and a global positioning receiver to record speed, gear selection and brake force,” but also provides a recording of the driver’s point of view as well as recording noises made inside the car. As journalist Jaclyn Trop reports for the New York Times, “Drivers can barely make a left turn, put on their seatbelts or push 80 miles an hour without their actions somehow, somewhere being tracked or recorded.” Indeed, as Jim Farley, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Ford Motor Company all but admitted, corporations and government officials already have a pretty good sense of where you are at all times: “We know everyone who breaks the law, we know when you’re doing it. We have GPS in your car, so we know what you’re doing.
” Now that the government and its corporate partners-in-crime know where you’re going and how fast you’re going when in your car, the next big hurdle will be to know how many passengers are in your car, what contraband might be in your car (and that will largely depend on whatever is outlawed at the moment, which could be anything from Sudafed cold medicine to goat cheese), what you’re saying and exactly what you’re doing within the fiberglass and steel walls of your vehicle. That’s where drones come in.
Once drones take to the skies en masse in 2015, there will literally be no place where government agencies and private companies cannot track your movements. These drones will be equipped with cameras that provide a live video feed, as well as heat sensors, radar and thermal imaging devices capable of seeing through the walls of your car. Some will be capable of peering at figures from 20,000 feet up and 25 miles away. They will be outfitted with infrared cameras and radar which will pierce through the darkness. They can also keep track of 65 persons of interest at once. Some drones are already capable of hijacking Wi-Fi networks and intercepting electronic communications such as text messages. The Army has developed drones with facial recognition software, as well as drones that can complete a target-and-kill mission without any human instruction or interaction. These are the ultimate killing and spying machines. There will also be drones armed with “less-lethal” weaponry, including bean bag guns and tasers.
And of course all of this information, your every movement—whether you make a wrong move, or appear to be doing something suspicious, even if you don’t do anything suspicious, the information of your whereabouts, including what stores and offices you visit, what political rallies you attend, and what people you meet—will be tracked, recorded and streamed to a government command center, where it will be saved and easily accessed at a later date.
By the time you add self-driving cars into the futuristic mix, equipped with computers that know where you want to go before you do, you’ll be so far down the road to Steven Spielberg’s vision of the future as depicted in Minority Report that privacy and autonomy will be little more than distant mirages in your rearview mirror. The film, set in 2054 and based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, offered movie audiences a special effect-laden techno-vision of a futuristic world in which the government is all-seeing, all-knowing and all-powerful. And if you dare to step out of line, dark-clad police SWAT teams will bring you under control.
Mind you, while critics were dazzled by the technological wonders displayed in Minority Report, few dared to consider the consequences of a world in which Big Brother is, literally and figuratively, in the driver’s seat. Even the driverless cars in Minority Report answer to the government’s (and its corporate cohorts’) bidding.
Likewise, we are no longer autonomous in our own cars. Rather, we are captive passengers being chauffeured about by a robotic mind which answers to the government and its corporate henchmen. Soon it won’t even matter whether we are seated behind the wheel of our own vehicles, because it will be advertisers and government agents calling the shots.
Case in point: devices are now being developed for European cars that would allow police to stop a car remotely, ostensibly to end police chases. Google is partnering with car manufacturers in order to integrate apps and other smartphone-like technology into vehicles, in order to alert drivers to deals and offers at nearby businesses. As Patrick Lin, professor of Stanford’s School of Engineering, warns, in a world where third-party advertisers and data collectors control a good deal of the content we see on a daily basis, we may one day literally be driven to businesses not because we wanted to go there, but because someone paid for us to be taken there.
Rod Serling, creator of the beloved sci fi series Twilight Zone and one of the most insightful commentators on human nature, once observed, “We’re developing a new citizenry. One that will be very selective about cereals and automobiles, but won’t be able to think.”
Indeed, not only are we developing a new citizenry incapable of thinking for themselves, we’re also instilling in them a complete and utter reliance on the government and its corporate partners to do everything for them—tell them what to eat, what to wear, how to think, what to believe, how long to sleep, who to vote for, whom to associate with, and on and on.
In this way, we have created a welfare state, a nanny state, a police state, a surveillance state, an electronic concentration camp—call it what you will, the meaning is the same: in our quest for less personal responsibility, a greater sense of security, and no burdensome obligations to each other or to future generations, we have created a society in which we have no true freedom.
Pandora’s Box has been opened and there’s no way to close it. As Rod Serling prophesied in a Commencement Address at the University of Southern California in March 17, 1970:
“It’s simply a national acknowledgement that in any kind of priority, the needs of human beings must come first. Poverty is here and now. Hunger is here and now. Racial tension is here and now. Pollution is here and now. These are the things that scream for a response. And if we don’t listen to that scream – and if we don’t respond to it – we may well wind up sitting amidst our own rubble, looking for the truck that hit us – or the bomb that pulverized us. Get the license number of whatever it was that destroyed the dream. And I think we will find that the vehicle was registered in our own name.
” You can add the following to that list of needs requiring an urgent response: Police abuse is here and now. Surveillance is here and now. Imperial government is here and now. Yet while the vehicle bearing down upon us is indeed registered in our own name, we’ve allowed Big Brother to get behind the wheel, and there’s no way to put the brakes on this runaway car.
In all the years I have been doing this, I have not read a more dire warning that should, if the reader is not comatose, frighten the hell out of you, and make you resolve to participate in the internet revolution. On the other hand, if the reader has been watching things like Duck Dynasty and dancing with the stars the above may sound like science fiction. BELIEVE ME IT’S NOT; SO GET BUSY AND PROTEST THE LOSS OF YOUR PERSONHOOD, AND ALL PERSONAL RIGHTS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE FORMER FREE STATES OF AMERICA. NOW US.INCORPORATED
