The Fruits of Endless War — How Insurance Fraud Funds “Your” Government(s)

By Anna Von Reitz

Let me say it again for the benefit of all those still asleep: there is (1) the actual United States composed of fifty (50) independent sovereign nation-states which are geographically defined, (2) the Territorial United States which only exists on paper composed of (57) fifty-seven incorporated “States of States” such as the State of Washington, and (3) the Municipal United States which also exists only on paper composed of (57) fifty-seven incorporated “STATES OF STATES” such as the “STATE OF OHIO”.

Unfortunately, the perpetrators of this grand fraud were allowed to create these shadow “states” via the loophole provided by Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 giving the Congress the plenary right to govern the District of Columbia.  So they have. They set up shop for themselves in 1864 and have been operating as a crime syndicate ever since. They have played no end of semantic deceits and made false claims against you and your assets  (a process called “hypothecating debt”) and have indulged in constructive fraud and kidnapping and racketeering and inland piracy at your expense.

As if paying for three levels of government was not enough, the vermin are presently trying to saddle you with a fourth tier of useless eaters—“Regional Government” under “UN” auspices.  I say that because government produces nothing but more government, therefore, if anyone is to be discarded as “useless eaters”, I suggest that it be the bankers and politicians and government workers first in line for permanent lay-offs.

Soon, if this cancerous and fraudulent process of endlessly proliferating government is not stopped, a very tiny segment of the productive population will be laboring day and night to support unproductive government workers and government dependents and all sanity will be turned upside down and on its head.  You will literally be the slaves of your “public servants”.

This is the backdrop for today’s subject matter — the vast insurance fraud that has been used since 1702 as the means to fund government and also the reason why we have endless war in our midst.

The first scam is to seize upon you and your estate while you are still a helpless baby in your cradle.  The liars pretend that you have been “abandoned” at the hospital and that your Mother is a mere “informant”— turning you over as a ward of their “State of State” organization.

Now that they have a false claim to work from, they take out a life insurance policy on their “ward” to profit themselves in the event of your death.  This guarantees that whatever they may have to spend on you— which is usually nothing thanks to your gullible parents— will be returned with profit upon your demise.

Your entire estate— your name, your body, your assets and even your rights— are all rolled over into an ESTATE trust benefiting yet another level of government.  This trust is set up as a generation skipping trust and your “State of State” Guardians obligingly agree (on your behalf and for your own good, of course) that you “agree”—- without ever actually agreeing or even knowing about all this crap going on in the background— to “donate” all your worldly goods and assets to this generation skipping trust and to forego all benefit yourself.

That’s how all YOUR contributions to the IRS become characterized as “gift and estate taxes”.

Now obviously, when you die it is pay off time for the government criminals responsible for this “System”.  Thirty days after YOUR Death Certificate is issued they make a Claim on Abandonment against your ESTATE and they seize it for their own benefit.  They also collect on YOUR life insurance policy.

So now you know why war is so profitable and why it has been constantly perpetuated by the fiends occupying Rome, the City of London, District of Columbia, and the United Nations City State, all of which are owned and operated by three groups of Satanists, most of whom pretend to be Jews “but are not Jews, but a Synagogue of Satan” to quote Jesus.

How to end it?  Well, there are relatively few of them and a great many of us.  If we wise up and refuse to play their ugly games they are shit out of luck.  If we grab the politicians by both ears and bang our dishes on the floor like angry dogs the fear of the electorate will eventually win out over their other base instincts.

Reform of the entire insurance industry so as to put an end to profiting from death is a start.  Refusing to sign any paperwork for any hospital ever again is another. (Did you know that your dead cadaver is worth $11.4 million USD???)  Suing the rats in international court venues and operating our own Federal Postal District Courts to do it, without employing any Bar Association Members, is another.

Educating your friends, family, and neighbors is of paramount importance, as well as getting your own political status firmly declared in public record.  Organizing your county and state jural assemblies comes next.  Signing up and serving your state militias (as opposed, of course, to any “state of state militias” which are illegal commercial mercenary forces) is another big step in the right direction.

Any decent man or woman who holds a Bar Card should tear it up in little pieces, throw it down the toilet, and come join our “Living Law Firm”.  I say that not as a merely moral judgment, but as a practical prescription.  If the Bar Members themselves don’t see why this hideous crap has to stop—and take immediate steps to end it —-  they will be the first ones to go.

Talk to your insurance companies and cancel your policies.  Chances are you are just paying to protect property that a foreign government is pretending to own after lying and saying that you (or your false Guardians at the State of State office) donated your ESTATE to them.

Outright slaughter of those responsible has been suggested, but that just plays into the hands of the vermin in back of it all.  Remember— those people, the ones actually and factually behind all this, don’t care if it is a hospital administrator who dies for condoning and participating in this crime against humanity, or a Congressmen who is strung up in his hometown as an accomplice to it, or an innocent baby who is murdered as a consequence of it.  All they care about is the fact that somebody dies, and they get a big pay off as a result.

So, my dears, in approaching this scenario, it is very important to keep your tempers and to be cold as ice and to be determined as steel that this entire “System” is going to be identified and destroyed— root, stem, and leaf.

Keep calm and get even.  And get going.  Now.  Today.

Cops Detain Entire School, Illegally Search / Grope 900 Kids — Find NOTHING, Parents Furious

04/27/2017

http://www.activistpost.com/2017/04/cops-detain-entire-school-illegally-searchgrope-900-kids-find-nothing-parents-furious.html

By Matt Agorist

Worth County, GA — Children feel violated, parents are furious, and a lawsuit is getting filed after the Worth County Sheriff’s office conducted an illegal search of 900 students — in the name of the war on drugs. The rights-violating intrusive and aggressive patdowns and drug dog searches yielded absolutely nothing.

On April 14, when the students of Worth County High School returned from spring break, they arrived at school to find a police state had taken over. The sheriff and his deputies — with no probable cause — detained and illegally searched every single child in the school, all 900 of them.

When kids went home that day to tell their parents what happened, naturally, they were furious as it is a gross violation of the children’s 4th Amendment rights.

“It’s essentially a fourth amendment violation,” said attorney Mark Begnaud. “It’s 900 illegal searches, suspicion-less pat downs, suspicion-less searches.”

Naturally, Sheriff Jeff Hobby is standing by this rights violation on a massive scale, noting that as long as a school administrator was present, the search of the children was legal.

Apparently, in the sheriff’s mind, school administrators can usurp the constitutional rights of children in favor of unlawful police searches.

But school officials and the student rule book disagree.

In the student handbook, it says school officials may search a student only if there is reasonable suspicion the student has an illegal item.

As WALB reports, Worth County Schools attorney Tommy Coleman said in order for the Sheriff’s office to search any students, they’d had to have reason to believe there was some kind of criminal activity or the student had possession of contraband or drugs.

“If you don’t have that then this search would violate an individual’s rights,” said Coleman. “[It] violates the constitutional right and enforcing them the right against unreasonable search and seizures.”

Interim Worth County Superintendent Lawrence Walters said he understands parents concerns about the drug search at Worth County High school on Friday, according to WALB.

“I’ve never been involved with anything like that ever in the past 21 years and I don’t condone it,” said Walters.

Walters said he was notified that there was be a search but pointed out that he did not give permission nor did he approve the mass groping of children.

“We did not give permission but they didn’t ask for permission, he just said, the sheriff, that he was going to do it after spring break,” said Walters.

“Under no circumstances did we approve touching any students,” explained Walters.

Adding insult to injury, many students complained that they got far more than just a pat down.

At least one deputy’s searches were found to be “too intrusive.”

According to Hobby, it was later discovered that one of the deputies had exceeded instructions given by Hobby and conducted a pat down of some students that was considered to be too intrusive.

When multiple students complained about being groped by the intrusive deputy, Sheriff Hobby ensured parents and school officials that “corrective action was taken to make sure the behavior will not be repeated.”

Exactly who that cop was and what ‘corrective action’ was taken, remains a mystery.

“I’m okay with them doing the search, if it was done appropriately like the school has done in the past,” said father of two Jonathan Luke. “But when they put their hands on my son, that’s crossing the line.”

Aside from not finding a single bit of contraband, the sheriff’s search was also entirely uncalled for as the Sylvester Police Department did a search on March 17 — just a few weeks before — and found no drugs.

But Hobby told reporters he didn’t think that search was thorough enough, so he decided to do his own. And, this time, he’d grope every student.

Now, many of the parents are planning a lawsuit against the Sheriff’s office which will likely be the only means of holding this man and his department accountable.

As for the 900 counts of deprivation of rights under the color of law that the sheriff should be facing, not a single charge has been levied against the department.

This is what school has become in a police state.

Run for Your Life The American Police State Is Coming to Get You +The Iron Jaws of the Police State: Trump’s America Is a Constitution-Free Zone

04/26/2017

“Policing is broken… It has evolved as a paramilitary, bureaucratic, organizational arrangement that distances police officers from the communities they’ve been sworn to protect and serve. When we have shooting after shooting after shooting that most people would define as at least questionable, it’s time to look, not just at a few bad apples, but the barrel. And I’m convinced that it is the barrel that is rotted.”— Norm Stamper, former Seattle police chief

Please.
Somebody give Attorney General Jeff Sessions a copy of the Constitution.

And while you’re at it, get a copy to President Trump, too.
In fact, you might want to share a copy with the nation’s police officers, as well.

I have my doubts that any of these individuals—all of whom swore to uphold and defend the Constitution—have ever read any of the nation’s founding documents.

Had they actually read and understood the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights, there would be no militarized police, no mass surveillance, no police shootings of unarmed individuals, no SWAT team raids, no tasering of children, no asset forfeiture schemes or any of the other government-sanctioned abuses that get passed off as law and order these days.

We’ve got serious problems in this country, and they won’t be solved on the golf course, by wining and dining corporate CEOs, giving local police forces more military equipment, locking down the nation, or pretending that the only threats to our freedoms are posed by forces beyond our borders or by “anti-government” extremists hiding among us.

So far, Trump’s first 100 days in office have been no different from Obama’s last 100 days, at least when it comes to the government’s ongoing war on our freedoms.

Government corruption remains at an all-time high.

Police shootings and misconduct have continued unabated.

The nation’s endless wars continue to push us to the brink of financial ruin.

And “we the people” are still being treated as if we have no rights, are entitled to no protections, and exist solely for the purpose of sustaining the American police state with our hard-earned tax dollars.

Just take the policing crisis in this country, for instance.

Sessions—the chief lawyer for the government and the head of the Justice Department, which is entrusted with ensuring that the nation’s laws are faithfully carried out and holding government officials accountable to abiding by their oaths of office to “uphold and defend the Constitution”—doesn’t think we’ve got a policing problem in America.

In fact, Sessions thinks the police are doing a great job (apart from “the individual misdeeds of bad actors,” that is).

For that matter, so does Trump.

Really, really great.

Indeed, Sessions thinks the nation’s police forces are doing such a great job that they should be rewarded with more military toys (weapons, gear, equipment) and less oversight by the Justice Department.

As for Trump, he believes “the dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America is wrong” and has vowed to “end it.”

Excuse me for a moment while I flush what remains of the Constitution down the toilet.

Clearly, Trump has not been briefed on the fact that it has never been safer to be a cop in America. According to Newsweek, “it’s safer to be a cop than it is to simply live in many U.S. cities… It’s safer to be a cop than it is to live in Baltimore. It’s safer to be a cop than it is to be a fisher, logger, pilot, roofer, miner, trucker or taxi driver. It’s safer to be a cop today than it’s been in years, decades, or even a century, by some measures.”

You know what’s dangerous?

Being a citizen of the American police state.

Treating cops as deserving of greater protections than their fellow citizens.

And training cops to think and act like they’re soldiers on a battlefield.

As journalist Daniel Bier warns, “If you tell cops over and over that they’re in a war, they’re under siege, they’re under attack, and that citizens are the enemy—instead of the people they’re supposed to protect—you’re going to create an atmosphere of fear, tension, and hostility that can only end badly, as it has for so many people.”

Frankly, if there’s a war taking place in this country, it’s a war on the American people.

After all, we’re the ones being shot at and tasered and tracked and beaten and intimidated and threatened and invaded and probed.

And what is the government doing to fix this policing crisis that threatens the safety of every man, woman and child in this country?

Not a damn thing.

Incredibly, according to a study by the American Medical Association, police-inflicted injuries send more than 50,000 Americans to hospital emergency rooms every year.

Yet as Slate warns, if you even dare to criticize a police officer let alone challenge the myth of the hero cop—a myth “used to legitimize brutality as necessary, justify policies that favor the police, and punish anyone who dares to question police tactics or oppose the unions’ agendas”— you will be roundly denounced “as disloyal, un-American, and dangerous.”

As reporter David Feige concludes, “We should appreciate the value and sacrifice of those who choose to serve and protect. But that appreciation should not constitute a get-out-of-jail-free card for the vast army of 800,000 people granted general arrest powers and increasingly armed with automatic weapons and armored vehicles.”

Vast army.

Equipped with deadly weapons.

Empowered with arrest powers.

Immune from accountability for wrongdoing.

What is this, Hitler’s America?

Have we strayed so far from our revolutionary roots that we no longer even recognize tyranny when it’s staring us in the face?

The fact that police are choosing to fatally resolve encounters with their fellow citizens by using their guns speaks volumes about what is wrong with policing in America today, where police officers are being dressed in the trappings of war, drilled in the deadly art of combat, and trained to look upon “every individual they interact with as an armed threat and every situation as a deadly force encounter in the making.”

Mind you, the federal government is the one responsible for turning our police into extensions of the military, having previously distributed billions of dollars’ worth of military equipment to local police agencies, including high-powered weapons, assault vehicles, drones, tactical gear, body armor, weapon scopes, infrared imaging systems and night-vision goggles—equipment intended for use on the battlefield—not to mention federal grants for militarized training and SWAT teams.

Thus, despite what Attorney General Sessions wants you to believe, the daily shootings, beatings and roadside strip searches (in some cases, rape) of American citizens by police are not isolated incidents.

Likewise, the events of recent years are not random occurrences: the invasive surveillance, the extremism reports, the civil unrest, the protests, the shootings, the bombings, the military exercises and active shooter drills, the color-coded alerts and threat assessments, the fusion centers, the transformation of local police into extensions of the military, the distribution of military equipment and weapons to local police forces, the government databases containing the names of dissidents and potential troublemakers.

Rather, these developments are all part of a concerted effort to destabilize the country, institute de facto martial law disguised as law and order, and shift us fully into the iron jaws of the police state.

So, no, the dramatic increase in police shootings are not accidents.

It wasn’t an “accident” that 26-year-old Andrew Lee Scott, who had committed no crime, was gunned down by police who knocked aggressively on the wrong door at 1:30 am, failed to identify themselves as police, and then repeatedly shot and killed Scott when he answered the door while holding a gun in self-defense. Police were investigating a speeding incident by engaging in a middle-of-the-night “knock and talk” in Scott’s apartment complex.

It wasn’t an “accident” when Levar Edward Jones was shot by a South Carolina police officer during a routine traffic stop over a seatbelt violation as he was in the process of reaching for his license and registration. The trooper justified his shooting of the unarmed man by insisting that Jones reached for his license “aggressively.”

It wasn’t an “accident” when Francisco Serna, a 73-year-old grandfather with early-stage dementia, was shot and killed by police for refusing to remove his hand from his pocket. Police were investigating an uncorroborated report that Serna had a gun, but it turned out he was holding a crucifix and made no aggressive movements before he was gunned down.

It wasn’t an “accident” when Nandi Cain, Jr., was thrown to the ground, choked and punched over a dozen times by a police officer after the officer stopped Cain for jaywalking.  Cain made no aggressive moves toward the officer, and had even removed his jacket to show the officer he had no weapon.

It wasn’t an “accident” when 65-year-old Thomas Smith, suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, called 911 because of a medical problem only to have his home raided by a SWAT team. Smith was thrown to the ground and placed in handcuffs because his condition prevented him from following police instructions.

It wasn’t an “accident” when John Wrana, a 95-year-old World War II veteran, died after being shot multiple times by a police officer with a Mossberg shotgun during a raid at Wrana’s room at an assisted living center. This, despite the fact that there were five police officers on the scene to subdue Wrana, who used a walker to get around and was “armed” with a shoehorn and not a knife, as police assumed.

It wasn’t an “accident” when a 10-year-old boy was subdued by two police officers using a taser because the child became unruly at the day care center he attended.

It wasn’t an “accident” when police in South Dakota routinely subjected persons, some as young as 3 years old, to catheterizations in order to forcibly obtain urine samples.

It wasn’t an “accident” when Charles Kinsey, a behavioral therapist, was shot by police as he was trying to help an autistic patient who had wandered away from his group home and was sitting in the middle of the road playing with a toy car. The officer who shot Kinsey was reportedly told that neither Kinsey nor the patient had a weapon.

It wasn’t an “accident” when Frank Arnal Baker was mauled by a police dog and kicked by an officer for not complying quickly enough with a police order. Baker, who had done nothing wrong, spent two weeks in the hospital with fractured ribs and collapsed lungs and needed skin grafts for the dog-bite injuries.

No, none of these incidents were accidents.

Nor are they isolated, anecdotal examples of a few bad actors, as Sessions insists.

Far from being isolated or anecdotal, police misconduct cases have become so prevalent as to jeopardize the integrity of all of the nation’s law enforcement agencies.

Unfortunately, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, this is what happens when you allow so-called “law and order” to matter more than justice: corruption flourishes, injustice reigns and tyranny takes hold.

Yet no matter what Trump and Session seem to believe, nowhere in the Constitution does it say that Americans must obey the government.

Despite the corruption of Congress and the complicity of the courts, nowhere does the Constitution require absolute subservience to the government’s dictates.

And despite what most police officers seem to believe, nowhere does the Constitution state that Americans must comply with a police order.

To suggest otherwise is authoritarianism.

This is also, as abolitionist Frederick Douglass noted, the definition of slavery: “I didn’t know I was a slave until I found out I couldn’t do the things I wanted.”

You want to know what it means to be a slave in the American police state?

It means being obedient, compliant and Sieg Heil!-ing every government agent armed with a weapon. If you believe otherwise, try standing up for your rights, being vocal about your freedoms, or just challenging a government dictate, and see how long you last before you’re staring down the barrel of a loaded government-issued gun.

Yet no matter what Trump and Session seem to believe, nowhere in the Constitution does it say that Americans must obey the government.

Despite the corruption of Congress and the complicity of the courts, nowhere does the Constitution require absolute subservience to the government’s dictates.

And despite what most police officers seem to believe, nowhere does the Constitution state that Americans must comply with a police order.

To suggest otherwise is authoritarianism.

This is also, as abolitionist Frederick Douglass noted, the definition of slavery: “I didn’t know I was a slave until I found out I couldn’t do the things I wanted.”

You want to know what it means to be a slave in the American police state?

It means being obedient, compliant and Sieg Heil!-ing every government agent armed with a weapon. If you believe otherwise, try standing up for your rights, being vocal about your freedoms, or just challenging a government dictate, and see how long you last before you’re staring down the barrel of a loaded government-issued gun.


A Very Important Announcement The Nature of the Battle

04/25/2017

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/a-very-important-announcement-nature-of.html

By Anna Von Reitz

This morning it comes across my desk that the foreign organization calling itself “General Post Office” is assembling an “army” to invade the Continental United States.

Let me point out that no such foreign entity has any right to be on our soil —and that includes the forces of the UN Corp and NATO and the US ARMY.

We are not allowing any additional illegal commercial mercenary actions to take place on our soil and we don’t care who is trying to do it or under whatever name or NAMES they are seeking to accomplish these venal ends.  You can call yourselves God, Mother, and Apple Pie for all I care and the answer is still the same.  You have no right to be here causing trouble on our soil.

Just because they got away with it during the so-called Civil War and succeeded in getting us to stupidly fight against each other instead of dispatching the perpetrators of these illegal “wars” doesn’t mean that they are going to pull it a second time.

We will not fight among ourselves, but will draw the distinction and the line very clearly for all the world to see.

The foreign corporations inhabiting the foreign jurisdiction of the Municipality of Washington and the District of Columbia have nothing whatsoever to do with the American states or their people—- these entities are subcontractors who are supposed to be here providing “essential government services” in Good Faith.

Judge for yourselves if they are doing that and who the aggressors and criminals are?

This is a criminal matter— not a political one.

And it needs to be addressed in terms of crime and it will be.

These corporations that are offering to do violence on our soil need to be liquidated and the person(s) uniquely responsible for doing that duty are Pope Francis and the Roman Curia. This is because they created all forms of corporations that exist in this world and they are responsible for making sure that they operate lawfully.

If they fail to pull the plug and the funding of the “General Post Office” and the “UN Corp” and any other corporation that offers to harm us—- “JAPAN”, “Raytheon”, “General Electric” or any other incorporated organization bent on harming actual people and our land, then it is clear to the entire world that they are part of the problem, not the solution.

These corporations have one duty— to fulfill the contractual obligations created by the actual constitution; instead, they are fighting among themselves and making all sorts of insupportable claims about land, gold, and other assets that belong to the American states and people and not to them at all.

Enough of this ridiculous situation.

The land belongs to us as it always has and titles taken and enforced under color of law and in breach of trust and under conditions of self-evident deceit and fraud are crimes.  Nothing more.

Today, it is possible to simply cut the availability of funds to such organizations and dissolve their charters—- deny them the ability to exist and identify them as outlaw organizations, aka, international crime syndicates— and in very short order, they cease to exist in any effective sense of the word.

Any assets then revert to their creditors and in this case, the American states and people are the priority creditors bar none.

For those faithful militiamen and others who are concerned and “getting ready”—- being ready for whatever comes is always a good idea and Nature does not absolve us from that responsibility— but this is not a battle of arms and armies.  This is a battle of truth against falsehood and fact against fiction—-criminal corporations against the organic states and people of the entire world.

Participants in any commercial mercenary action on our shores will be identified simply as what they are—–criminals, whether they wear uniforms or not.  And we could care less what flag they fly or what ditty they whistle.

Anyone including the Pope who fails to take drastic action to prevent any such unpleasantness is a criminal also, as an accomplice to the crime.

So use your mouths to get the word out and raise your voices and point your fingers at the actual source of the problem—– dishonest politicians and dishonest international bankers making insupportable “claims on abandonment” and seeking unjust enrichment.

If the Pope fails his duty to liquidate the offending corporations causing these dangers and problems, then point your fingers at the Pope, too.  Don’t bother to fight among yourselves.  Just hunt down the politicians and the bankers responsible and bring them to trial for crimes against humanity.

Why Civil Rights Are the Key to National Solidarity

04/24/2017

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/04/why-civil-rights-are-key-to-national.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+http%2Fpaulstramerfeedburnercom+%28http%3A%2F%2Fwww.paulstramer.net++++Paul+Stramer+personal+blog%29

By Anna Von Reitz
Civil rights are not— strictly speaking— rights, but are instead privileges conferred on Territorial and Municipal citizens by the US Congress.
Citizens by definition serve the government, whereas Nationals are served by the government.

Therein lies the rub. A citizen lays down a greater or lesser portion of their natural sovereignty when they become a citizen. This is a natural consequence of their duty to serve the government.
In the wake of the so-called American Civil War black Americans were re-enslaved, not by private slave owners, but by the Territorial Government of the United States which arbitrarily conscripted them as citizens—public servants. They went directly from being chattel owned by individual private owners to being considered public chattel owned via citizenship obligations to the federal government. Thus, they acquired civil rights— basically, whatever rights the Congress wanted to give them—and lost their claim to the free exercise of all their natural and unalienable rights.

The excuse for this was the pretension that as black Americans were never specifically included as state nationals by the separate states, they were “stateless” and could be claimed by any government that wanted them.

Similar arguments were recently made by the same feckless Territorial United States government with regard to all the rest of us. They have claimed that we are “stateless” because we weren’t (so they said) operating our own states of the Union or any association of states, such as the United States of America.

To quote Gomer Pyle: “Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!”.

There have always been civil rights exercised by members of the civil service and elected public officials and public employees who are all citizens of one sort or another, and since 1968, those civil rights have been defined as “equal”—-but few people ever say “equal to what?”

The answer is: equal to the natural and unalienable rights enjoyed by American state nationals and American State Citizens (American State Citizens are the elected officials and public employees of the actual land jurisdiction state government–they owe their duty as citizens to the state government.)

What happens when and if there are no longer any American state nationals or American State Citizens exercising their natural and unalienable rights?

Well, then, the standard for equal civil rights disappears, because there is no longer anything for them to be “equal to”.

The Congress would finally be enabled to rule as absolute despots, not only over the actual Territorial and Municipal citizens, but over the entire population. Instead of a Republican form of government which we are owed, or even a foreign democracy such as the Territorial United States has been, we would be facing a Totalitarian Oligarchy similar to the old Soviet Union.

Nobody would have any actual rights. Everyone would instead have civil rights, but those civil rights would be entirely at the whim of the US Congress.

The rats would simply sit there smug on Capitol Hill and literally dictate whatever they pleased and everyone else would suffer the results of absolute despotism—– citizens and non-citizens alike.

And therein lies the key.

Once the federal Territorial and Municipal employees and all the other people (people of color, new immigrants, political asylum seekers, federal dependents) who are defined as citizens whether they like it or not— realize that their own equal civil rights are endangered by the continued liberal political jihad against those of us who are claiming our natural rights— the worm will turn.

Without us claiming our natural rights, they have no guaranteed civil rights at all.

If the American Republic goes down, so do they and their spiffy little democracy.

If we lose our claim to our natural and unalienable rights, they can kiss their “equal civil rights” good-bye.

And that is why civil rights are the key to national solidarity.

All those who enjoy equal civil rights have a very urgent reason to defend us and our old fashioned claims.

Every federal and federated state official, every public employee in America has their future on the line—whether they realize it or not— because their rights are utterly dependent on our rights.

If we have no natural and unalienable rights, no constitutional guarantees—guess what?

Then they have no equal civil rights to depend on, either!

Tension Builds: Vladimir Putin Mobilizes Troops and Equipment To North Korean Border: “Fears U.S. Is Preparing To Attack”

04/22/2017

 http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/tension-builds-vladimir-putin-mobilizes-troops-and-equipment-to-north-korean-border-fears-u-s-is-preparing-to-attack-the-united-states1_04202017

Mac Slavo

We can all pretend like there is nothing going on around the Korean Peninsula and hope that cooler heads will prevail, but if history is any guide, when the militaries of multiple nations begin to mass troops at borders, it takes only a single, often seemingly inconsequential, catalyst to plunge the situation into all-out war.

That’s exactly what’s happening in North Korea today. Two weeks ago China deployed some 150,000 troops to the North Korean border and put their entire military on high alert in anticipation of a U.S. military strike on Kim Jong Un.

Now we learn that Russia is rapidly deploying troop and equipment to their border with North Korea, as well.

Vladimir Putin is sending troops and equipment to Russia’s border with North Korea over fears the US is preparing to attack Kim Jong-un.
A video purports to show one of three trains loaded with military equipment moving towards the 11 mile-long land frontier between Russia and the repressive state.

Another evidently highlights military helicopter movements towards the North Korean border and manoeuvres across rough terrain by army combat vehicles.

Other reports suggest there have been military moves by road as well.

There have been concerns that if a conflict breaks out Russia could face a humanitarian exodus from North Korea.

But Putin has been warned, too, that in the event of a US strike on Kim Jong-un’s nuclear facilities, contamination could swiftly reach Russia.

‘Railway trains loaded with military equipment moving towards Primorsky region via Khabarovsk have been noticed by locals,’ reported primemedia.ru in the Russian far East – linking the development to the North Korean crisis.

‘The movement of military equipment by different means of transport to southern areas is being observed across Primorsky region over the past week,’ said military veteran Stanislva Sinitsyn.

Full report: The Daily Mail

A few hundred thousands troops on the North Korean border, a U.S. Naval Strike Fleet awaiting orders from President Trump and constant threats of missile and nuclear tests from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un…

What could possibly go wrong?

What if We Don’t Really Govern Ourselves?

04/21/2017
https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/04/andrew-p-napolitano/what-if-we-dont-govern-ourselves/

By Andrew P. Napolitano

What if our belief in self-government is a belief in a myth? What if the election of one political party over the other to control Congress changes only appearances? What if taxes stay high and regulations stay pervasive and the government stays oppressive and presidents fight wars no matter what the politicians promise and no matter who wins elections? What if the true goal of those whom we elect to Congress is not to be our agents of self-government or even to preserve our personal liberties but to remain in power by getting re-elected?

What if they use government to aid their own re-elections by bribing us with our own money — the rich with bailouts, the middle class with tax breaks and the poor with transfer payments?

What if Congress has written laws that are too complex for its own members to read and understand? What if the language of most federal laws is intentionally arcane so that ordinary voters cannot understand it? What if that language is actually written by faceless bureaucrats and not by accountable members of Congress? What if members of Congress in fact rarely read any legislation before voting on it? What if some legislation refers to secrets and secret procedures that only a few members of Congress are permitted to see and utilize? The Constitution in Ex… Andrew P. Napolitano Best Price: $1.05 Buy New $4.49

What if when the select few members of Congress who are permitted to see those secrets do see them, those members are themselves sworn to secrecy? What if that means that our elected representatives — our supposed agents of self-government in the government — do not fully know what the government is doing and that even if they do, they can’t legally tell us?

What if our representatives in Congress don’t really represent us? What if they really represent a political party? What if each political party is controlled by a small leadership group that punishes members who defy it? What if Congress has written laws and rules that permit its leaders to punish members’ defiance? What if another way to characterize defiance of political party leadership is political courage?

What if the laws that Congress has written about the CIA have delegated congressional power to a small secret committee of members from both houses of Congress and both political parties? What if that committee can authorize secret wars in foreign lands conducted not by the military but by the CIA? What if the reason these folks authorize the CIA and not the military to conduct secret wars is the existence of federal laws that require reporting to and a vote of the entire Congress for the military to be used but require only the small secret committee to approve for the CIA to be used?

Because wars cost money and often cost lives, what if the effect of the decisions of the small secret committee is that the committee is basically a Congress within Congress? What if the Constitution says that only Congress can spend tax dollars and declare wars but Congress Suicide Pact: The Radi… Andrew P. Napolitano Best Price: $1.06 Buy New $2.13 has let the Congress within Congress do this? What if the voters will never know what the Congress within Congress has authorized? What if the very existence of the Congress within Congress mocks, defies and betrays the concept of American self-government?

What if the data seen and discussed and the decisions made in secret by the Congress within Congress are generated by the CIA and other intelligence agencies? What if these intelligence agencies selectively reveal and selectively conceal data to manipulate the decisions of the Congress within Congress? What if those manipulations often result in bloodshed about which the American people often never learn? What if the bases for the decisions of the Congress within Congress are kept from the other members of Congress, from the media and from the voters?

What if the folks from both political parties who set up the Congress within Congress care more about wielding power than they do about preserving self-government? What if those who pull the levers of power in the intelligence community are so far removed from the voters that they don’t know and don’t care what the voters think? What if they know that the voters would react forcefully and decisively if the voters knew what the members of the Congress within Congress know but they still won’t tell us?

What if all this diversion of power from the elected Congress to the Congress within Congress and all this reliance on secret data has resulted in the most pervasive surveillance by any government of any people at any time in world history? What if the federal government’s domestic surveillance today captures and retains digital copies of every telephone call and every computer keystroke of every person in America and The Freedom Answer Boo… Andrew P. Napolitano Best Price: $2.00 Buy New $3.01 has done so since 2005? What if members of Congress who are not in the Congress within Congress do not know this?

What if the Congress within Congress has authorized American spies to spy without personal suspicion or judicial warrant on the military, the courts, the police and every person in America, including the remaining members of Congress, much of the remaining intelligence community itself and even the White House?

What if the selective use of the data acquired from mass surveillance can be used to manipulate anyone by those who have access to the data? What if those who have access to the data have used it to manipulate the president of the United States? What if all this constitutes a grave but largely unseen threat to our liberties, not the least of which is the right to self-government?

What if we don’t really govern ourselves? What do we do about it?
