Posted by Dr. Eowyn

Independent journalist George Webb says that after President Trump fired FBI director James Comey, longtime Democrat operative and Clinton loyalist John Podesta is in a frenzy to unload $40 billion from the Clinton Foundation — by buying up art, gold and diamonds, and spreading them out all over the world — before those assets are seized by a new FBI director.

Beginning at the 0:30 mark in the video above, Webb says:

“Right now . . . John Podesta is buying up artwork between every Jewish art dealer.”

Webb is asked: “How do you know that?”

Webb answers:

“I have a contact within the French intelligence that’s told me that. So they’re buying up artwork right now in every, they know every art dealer that he’s buying art from . . . . What you’re dealing with is Trump could go get that 40 billion dollars right now and seize those assets. So before a new FBI director is named — [Acting FBI Director Andrew] McCabe knows all about the $40 billion — you start moving this stuff to gold, diamonds, artwork and so forth, and you put it in your network . . . out into as many different countries as possible, so it’ll be so difficult to actually go seize. You have a contractual issue or an international issue every time you try to get some of this stuff that’s been moved. The money right now is being moved by John Podesta to artwork, diamonds and gold.

As explained by Forbidden Knowledge TV‘s Alexandra Bruce:

“Webb sees the Seth Rich murder as just a small part of a much bigger picture of high-level racketeering by Hillary Clinton, her minions and whoever she’s fronting. It’s an outrageous amount of money that’s been amassed over some twenty years.”

Webb calls the Clintons’ racketeering, including drug running, the Clinton rat line.

Bruce continues:

“Webb then proceeds to . . . illustrate how the drug-running between Afghanistan and Punjab, to Pakistan, to Turkey’s Incirlik airbase to NATO, in Mons, Belgium.

Webb says, large military transport planes, like C-130s are used to transfer raw opium from Afghanistan to Pakistan, where they are refined into opioid medications, which are then contracted-out by mobbed-up doctors, to places like the VA (US Department of Veterans Affairs), where these generic drugs (usually watered-down to half- or quarter-strength) are distributed from Belgium.

He says information about all of the above can be found in the Congressional Blackberry phone network.

He describes these activities as, ‘Just Mena [Arkansas] Airport, on a global scale, just longer distances…It’s very simple: drugs go one way, arms go the other way….’ Half of the cargo gets left in Belgium and the rest comes to the US. In the past, he’s mentioned Offut Air Force Base in Nebraska, as well as an airport in Rockford, Illinois, where drugs were smuggled in shipments of mangoes and Basmati rice. Except that instead of the $1 million per day worth of cocaine being brought in at Mena, Webb claims, in an another one of his blizzard of micro-posts, that Offut AFB receives $1 billion per day (!) in opioids.”

 HOW PEOPLE THINK — AND GOVERN

I LOVE LITTLE BITS OF INFORMATION THAT HELP YOU UNDERSTAND HOW PEOPLE THINK — AND GOVERN.

One noteworthy reality about Europe’s current political leadership

is summarized here by Phil Lawler:

  • Macron, the newly elected French president, has no children.
    •  German chancellor Angela Merkel has no children.
    •  British prime minister Theresa May has no children.
    •  Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni has no children.
    •  Holland’s Mark Rutte,
    •  Sweden’s Stefan Löfven,
    •  Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel,
    •  Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon — all have no children.
    •  Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, has no children.

 

“So a grossly disproportionate number of the people making decisions about Europe’s future have no direct personal stake in that future.”

Olddogs Comments!

Personally, I think they made a smart and benevolent decision because as things are going, the future is going to be a hell-hole for all but the very rich. I would rather see less personal suffering as the world shakers destroy our methods of survival. Less people-less agony! Few, if anything hurts more than losing a child.

Organized Slander and Malignant False Personal attacks

05/30/2017

 CAFR1

 

By Walter Burien –

CAFR1 NATIONAL POST

Cleaning up the organized corruption permeating government is a monument-us and daunting job.

With the organized corruption being so well entrenched throughout all levels of government, and generating such massive wealth for the players from the same, in plain language: “They don’t play fair.”

The recent Presidential election shook the entrenched gang based on the implied cleanup to purge the corruption. What was their response to protect their well entrenched syndicate?

ANSWER: The same as they did before the election was maintained and solidified: Organized Slander and Malignant False Personal attacks and what they are doing is “NOT” a secured right under the: 1st Amendment.

What is systematically being done is a showing of just how entrenched the corruption is. The public is not stupid (at least most of them). Now I have watched over the decades the inherently corrupt organized syndicate gang “play” the public as if they were automated stupid drones who could be directed in their thinking through spoon fed malignant contrived information designed to destroy or promote an intended target.

We all have seen this played out before the election and now even a more organized and systematically applied effort by the gang after the election. A gradually intensified masterful presentation frothing the malignant intent to marginalize and damage our president, Mr. Donald Trump and certain key players of his staff.

Now those who do not know what the First Amendment is, they can stop reading this article. They are part of the hopelessly lost sound-bite conditioned drone population, and the time it would take to make them well informed cognitive thinking individuals, in end result would be well after the planed destruction and final looting of our country taking place. This article is exclusively for the informed cognitive thinkers out there.

My personal feelings and sentiments as to what is being done to slander, malign, and personally attack Mr. Trump are as follows.

 

  1. It is a very dangerous game the gang is playing. They weaken the standing the USA has with the global community. I note also that in this type of environment created by the gang, they also believe  they can manipulate the responses from Mr. Trump to actual world events. I say this after watching what I consider a mistake Mr. Trump was baited into making. Notably: The attack on a Syrian military air-base.

Those who do not have a short-term memory will recall that several years ago the syndicate gang wanting to attack Syria staged a chemical weapons incident blaming Syria in their attempts to use Military force to attack Syria. Well it almost worked until it was shown and proved that the chemical weapons use was done by insurgents (probably in coordination with a CIA covert op) to falsely justify an attack on Syria. The covert-op came real close to accomplishing the intent for a military attack but the false assertion backfired through assertive and timely investigation by the international community.

Well, it almost worked once, why not do the same and make it work again by baiting and pushing Mr. Trump into attacking Syria at this time as the gang froths at the mouth with a new presented oppertunity to do so. By them utilizing the same routine that almost worked before.. Well, they were successful in motivating Mr. Trump to attack Syria, and to his detriment in the international community.

Currently, the military option is being focused on N. Korea, a very real and dangerous circumstance. The response the USA should give to this circumstance? Well, what I would suggest is a four prong response:

 

A.) China is the “Parent” country to N. Korea. China should not tolerate the rhetoric coming out of N. Korea per an attack on the USA combined with long-range missile development. It should be made very clear to China that the threats from the child will bear on having responsibility and consequences to and for the parent.  China can stop N. Korea cold in its tracks and should be required to do so.

 

B.) We have spent a few trillion  dollars on our Star-Wars missile defense program. Let’s not let it go to waste. Make it very openly clear to N. Korea that any further long-range ballistic missile tests they conduct will be without hesitation shot down after launch by the USA.   A little target practice would be a good thing in this circumstance.

 

C.) Direct and severe  sanctions levied immediately against N. Korea by the USA until N. Korea changes their tune.

 

D.) Organize and implement world condemnation against N. Korea for openly and intentionally threatening World Peace. China, Russia, and the USA should be the fore-runners in this effort with all and as many other countries joining into the condemnation.

 

  1. The key buzz word the gang is using over and over again as if a promoted dreaded threat is Russia, Russia, Russia.

RUSSIA is a world power. All and every attempt to have a friendly, open, and mutually beneficial cooperative relationship with Russia is a must to be in place.

“How many other countries openly endorsed Mr. Trump”, many.. But it appears Russia has been selected by the gang as the “Buzz Word”.

In my personal opinion, if before the election Vladimir Putin staged an event in the USA in line with his famous picture were to ride his horse from East to West across the USA in a “Ride for Trump”, yes that would be “influencing the election” and that event would have been just fine with me.

ANYONE supporting a candidate for public office in the USA, if from the USA or elsewhere “is” a hallmark this country was founded on.

The effect of ANYONE’S support of a candidate will have  negative or positive effects that will motivate voters to vote one way or the other.

The event example noted here could not have been done due to security concerns for Mr. Putin. But if it had, I believe that due to the sentiments of the voters wanting to see a friendly, open, and mutually beneficial cooperative relationship with Russia , Hillary would have lost the election by another 25 to 30 million votes.

 

  1. Spoon feeding to the US Population selectively contrived half-truth or false information to the population is a well refined art. An art proven to be very effective over and over again throughout history. The gang and their well entrenched cooperatives from the syndicated media know this all to well.

If the gang for whatever reason targeted Mother Theresa for jay-walking in NY City as if a capital offense, after a while, with one contrived false story as fact being masterfully presented coming out, and to the detriment of the people of the United States, they would have the useful idiot drones chirping here, there, and everywhere for her execution to the dismay of the majority of the population wondering if this country has gone nuts. Bottom line is that the Gang is very good at their organized and false attacks against anyone.

 

  1. Read the writing on the wall and remember “who” is participating in the organized and methodical false and contrived attack on Mr. Trump. They are the well entrenched agents of the syndicate. Let them bear the mark of whom and what they are.

 

  1. “If” the corrupt syndicate is to be diminished and perpetually loose their in-place influence over this country, they must be overwhelmed with descent and indignation from a disgusted population in a direct, open, and effective manner. Let those talking heads and especially the directors from ABC, NBC, etc., or any other participant that is cooperating with the contrived, orchestrated, created out of false innuendo, attack against our president, that they are in no uncertain terms, human garbage. If that becomes the “Buzz words” of the day, it will out of their own survival instincts stop their organized venture.

 

  1. The following comment is directed to Mr. Trump: As noted, Organized Slander and Malignant False Personal attacks and what they are doing is “NOT” a secured right under the First Amendment. It is slander and defamation. Additionally when it is being done systematically as an organized “programmed” venture, for all intents and purposes it crosses the line of racketeering and establishment of a criminal enterprise.

If possible, and I strongly urge, that a multi-billion dollar “class action” law suit be expeditiously implemented against the syndicate players involved. ABC, NBC, CNN, and ALL individuals that have clearly established, proven, and showed they were and are actively involved. I say make it a class action being: Let every individual from the USA; participate in the “Class”.

You may just have 80 to 120 million individuals sign up to be a member of the class-action.

Many individuals from this country who now know the score are crying to STOP the syndicate that has slithered into the controlling forces over this county.

There is countless evidence now available to establish the malignant and falsely contrived intent of the syndicate operating as an organize racketeering entity in concert with each other, to within a predominance of the evidence; a judgment as requested can be secured on the class-action.

I do not know the over-all limitations on the Office of The President, but if this action is possible, I, and I believe tens of millions of Americans would be a 110% for this to take place, done directly or indirectly in your and this countries behalf.

As the old saying goes: “If you want to give someone an attitude adjustment, hit them in their pocket-book”.

 A class-action such as this would do just that to where “Fair Play” based on truth becomes the predominate factor and not the exception..

Sent FYI and for sharing / posting / publication with and for all that you know.

Truly Yours,

The First Sin Update on State Non Assumpsit Actions

05/29/2017

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/05/the-first-sin-update-on-state-non.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

Most people don’t read the Bible.  They need to, if they want to know what is going on in the world.  It is indeed a strange concept that we need to read a book that is derived from ancient history to keep current with today, but as with much else concerning this particular book—- it’s true.

Those who read the Bible know that Adam was tasked to be a caretaker of the Earth and granted dominion over the Earth, and he was also tasked to name the animals and trees and other things that he interacted with on Earth.

However, he was never given the task of naming himself or other men.

That task is reserved to our Father.  Much later in the Bible, in fact, we are promised that He will give us our true names.

As a result, whatever names we are given are not true names and are not part of Adam’s job to give.  The practice of applying names to men is the First Sin.

We may well ask, how are we supposed to talk about anything pertaining to men or make reference to anyone without giving them a name?

For many generations we have used descriptions that appear to be names to a greater or lesser extent, and so names typically have additional meanings which create descriptions that are included on a sub rosa basis.

Names like “Anne of Green Gables” and “Geoffry of Malmsbury” are apparent descriptions, but a name like “Anna” which means “Mother” and “Grace” also holds descriptive meaning.  This is all because we are not supposed to name each other, but, in practice, we do.

And that is the First Sin.

That it is a sin becomes very clear when you examine the process that has led to our current distress.  When we create “persons” and name them, men become identified as “things” and as things they lose their sanctity and dominion, and take on the inert and alien characteristics of say, rocks.

A man is a man, but a person is a thing—- and all the profound differences that exist between men and things apply.  It is a crime to murder a man, but there is no law against murdering a thing.

When you deliberately apply the names of living men to PERSONS as a means of deceiving them and harming them without being held accountable, a crime of “personage” occurs.

Personage is the act of reducing a man to a thing via a manipulation of his given name or by changing the agreed upon usage of his name to facilitate such a change.

For example, personage occurs when the function of your Trade Name in the form “John Mark Doe” (which you use for international trade) is arbitrarily redefined as the name of a Foreign Situs Trust operating in international commerce.

This is the kind of personage the FDR committed against our grandparents. It arbitrarily removed their names from the jurisdiction of the land and exposed them to piracy and the loss of their material rights and interests including their constitutional guarantees— all without telling them.

This change was made by the Territorial United States and could actually only apply to their Citizens, however, since nobody in the actual United States was fully informed, a process of “assumpsit” kicked in.  People just continued to use their own familiar Trade Name  as they always had, and in the process they became misidentified government employees operating Foreign Situs Trusts belonging to the United States of America, Inc.

Another form of personage occurs when the style of a name is changed to conform with such a change in function.

Having redefined the use and meaning of our Trade Names on the land to serve as the names of Foreign Situs Trusts on the sea, the perpetrators next created so-called Municipal franchises and messed with our names again to create Cestui Que Vie Trusts named after us:  JOHN MARK DOE.

Most recently, the Municipal United States has floated a whole new scam and arbitrarily defined names in the form “JOHN M. DOE” to be the names of US Public Transmitting Utilities.

Well, that may be what Mr. Obama thinks they are.

I say it’s just more fraud and more personage by our public servants deliberately being used to defraud and foist off foreign debt on us via a process of unwitting assumption.

The State of State organizations in Alaska, Maine, Washington, Michigan, Illinois, Texas, and Utah have received Notice of Non-Assumpsit published in the local newspapers.

These six actual States and their people have told Washington, DC and the world at large that there is a fraud scheme in play and we don’t agree with it and we don’t assume any debts related to all the names in the form “JOHN M. DOE”.

What about the rest of you people and states?

Are you all going to stand around like dumb posts and let the Territorial United States claim that you are one of their “Citizens” and subject to their “law” as if you were born in Puerto Rico?  Are you going to assume their debts, knowing that they are already bankrupt?

Get those Notices of Non-Assumpsit published so the Territorial United States can’t come back and say, “Hey, these people and their states assumed this debt, so it’s theirs to pay.”

This is your time to object and put it on the record.

Now, it is possible that what has been done by these states that have published their objections already could be brokered into a claim that all our states are owed equal footing—- but do you really want to leave your state on the list of states that they can say “acquiesced” by being silent?

With a $20 trillion debt in the air and looking for a place to land!

Donald J. Trump and Jeff Sessions 3.0

05/27/2017

http://www.paulstramer.net/

President Donald J. Trump

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

Washington, DC 20500

US Attorney General Jeffrey Sessions

950 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington, DC 20530

Dear President Trump and Attorney General Sessions:

This may be helpful to resolve— both in terms of coming to a peaceful resolution of our intergovernmental understandings, and in terms of getting the court system in this country working as it should again.  A country without justice and without an honest court system can never be great again, so let’s start there.

Back in 1994 this information passed over my desk and when a friend mentioned it to me this morning, I had reason to recall it and paw through the archives to find the 1994 US Government Manual, at page 390, where it says that the Attorney General is the permanent representative of INTERPOL, and the Secretary of Treasury is the alternate member.

Under Article 30 of the INTERPOL constitution, these individuals must expatriate their citizenship. They serve no allegiance to the United States of America.

So, Mr. Sessions, where is your FARA registration lodged?  And who are you working for now?  And under what authority? Presumably all the “state of state” Attorney General franchises are under the same authority?  And also have their Foreign Agents Registration on file somewhere?

The people who live in this country and who are supposed to be protected by you, Mr. Sessions, really want to know the answers to these questions.

Since 1999 when the bankruptcy of the United States of America settled, our actual land jurisdiction state governments operating as the Alaska State, California State, et alia, have been up and operating and have had our Notices and other paperwork on file with the World Court.

By what stretch of the imagination, then, have District Courts and the State of State organizations continued to presume that we aren’t in charge of our own business, and that we don’t have a population of our own people who never actually left their lawful standing and nation-state despite self-interested fraud by FDR and others?

As Mr. Trump recently experienced in his head-butting with the Ninth Circuit, the court system here is highly politicized, but that is actually the least of its problems.

Every time a prosecutor or a litigant plaintiff brings a charge in one of these private corporate tribunals operated “as” courts they must post a Bid Bond, and they have to post it in Good Faith— at least according to the Securities and Exchange Commission.  How is that possible, Mr. Sessions, when the majority of the cases involve parties who are not knowingly operating as corporations nor as corporate franchises?

Millions of people have been purposefully misidentified as Foreign Situs Trusts belonging to the Territorial United States and millions more have been similarly misidentified as ESTATE Trusts or Public Transmitting Utility franchise operators employed by the Municipal United States—- and this is all just self-interested fraud and bull poopy, to quote Ross Perot.

This whole situation is both illegal and unlawful, but most of all, it is immoral.

Last year, I sent out a simple Judicial Notice of Fraud and Violation and an Immediate Order to Cease and Desist, objecting to the practice of personage and barratry rampant in this country.  A copy of the two (2) page document is attached to this letter.  It forbids the practice of using GLOSSA, otherwise known as “Dog Latin” and “American Sign Language” to misrepresent the content of legal documents that otherwise appear to be written in English and what otherwise appears to be NAMES of living people: JOHN SILAS DOE and JOHN S. DOE for example, so as to confuse the real parties of interest in these cases and claims.

The living people of the fifty (50) American states are depending on you, Mr. Sessions, to secure and respect the lawful operations of our state and county land jurisdiction courts and to ride herd on all the District Courts and Territorial State of State Courts to ensure their proper limits and operations.  The abuse of the 150 year-old Reconstruction Acts by the members of the American Bar Association and members of Congress must come to an end.

There was in fact no “Civil War” ever declared by Congress and no Peace Treaty, either.  All that exists in the public record are declarations made by Presidents of commercial companies and corporations.  What we call the “American Civil War” was nothing but a private, illegal commercial mercenary action on our shores, and the guilty parties on both sides have milked it for all its worth.

If you are serious about making “America Great Again” we need to remember what made it great in the first place, and it wasn’t because of any Nanny State or “Democracy” or because  a couple gigantic commercial corporations in the business of providing governmental services cheated and defrauded their employers— the actual states and people.

Conscripting Americans into Territorial and Municipal jurisdictions without their knowing consent, foisting PERSONS merely named after them onto them to expedite the personage and barratry scheme, and then holding them liable for the actions and debts of various governmental services corporations is a form of criminality associated with the Dark Ages – feudalism–and it has no plausible excuse for being practiced on American state soil by a foreign municipal government that is supposed to be strictly limited in scope and location to the ten square miles of the District of Columbia.

Is it possible that these many thousands of “government” employees can’t read?  Or are we to understand that our employees are in rebellion against the actual Constitution and the Federal Territorial Constitution as well?  If so, Mr. Sessions, it is your duty to inform Interpol and order the arrest of all those in Washington DC who are involved in this criminal plot.

As recent court actions have proven, there is no specific allowance for the Territorial United States to operate any “State of State” franchises on our soil.   In view of their participation in fraud schemes meant to disinherit the people of this country and unlawfully convert our assets under color of law, hosting these State of State franchises of the Territorial United States is obviously not working out for us.

In fact, we understand that the Territorial United States surreptitiously offered our land as security for the bankruptcy of The United States of America, Inc. circa 1907, and that when the bankruptcy of that entity ended circa 1953, the color-of-law land titles were not returned to the states and the people.  This is an egregious disservice that was never admitted, so it could never be straightened out.  Instead, the next generation of administrators rolled our land holdings into a giant trust and pretended that the original landlords were “absent” and their locations “unknown” and assigned themselves the position of presumed beneficiaries.

Do you know how bad this stinks?

We are here, right where we have been for generations.   I, for one, have requested an in-depth title search to land owed to my parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents all the way back to before the so-called “Civil War” and our family still holds title to it, though we are owed the land patent instead.

This kind of unlawful conversion of property and beneficial interest has been practiced against us— your employers, the nice trusting people who ultimately pay for all these departments and personnel – since 1860.  It’s time for it to end and for the land and land assets to come home.

Gentlemen, there is absolutely no provision for the Municipal United States to operate “STATE OF STATE” organizations on our soil and there never was.  This is a blatant and unwelcome trespass upon our sovereign authority that the Territorial United States is responsible for.

We are operating our actual unincorporated businesses dba Colorado State, Florida State, et alia, that are owed to the formerly bankrupted land jurisdiction states.   The World Court has been advised since 1998.  The BIS has been notified since 2000.  It should not be a surprise to anyone that we have pursued our inheritance and our rightful place.

We are objecting to the presence of the Municipal United States on our shores outside the District of Columbia, and if you, Mr. Sessions, are indeed operating as the chief contact with Interpol, you should be fully informed and advised that: (1) our lawful states and state courts are operating and serving the people, not any PERSONS; (2) the corporate tribunals being run as District Courts are operating in blatant fraud and it is a disservice to everyone involved that they are; (3) we have suffered long-term, blatant, purposeful attacks in international jurisdiction infringing our copyrights, entangling us improperly in bankruptcies, stealing our identities, and have suffered press-ganging, involuntary conscription, kidnapping, identity theft, enslavement, and many, many other crimes committed against us by people taking their paychecks from our pockets.

There is indeed “something rotten in Denmark” but it is not the people of this country and it is not their states of the Union at fault.  Instead, the fraud since 1860 is the unique problem of the Territorial United States and the Municipal United States and it amounts to a gross Breach of Trust and violation of commercial contract which has been given Notice and Due Process for over a decade.

We are not being represented properly so it is therefore entirely necessary and proper that we present ourselves and settle our own issues.

We request that you, Mr. Sessions, take action to clean up the court system in this country.  Make sure that District Courts and federated “State of State” courts are not presuming upon American state nationals who bear no responsibilities of citizenship and who are not naturally subject to the government of the Territorial United States nor the Municipal United States.

The actual people belong with us and to our states, Mr. Sessions.  Only the “persons” — most of which have been created under conditions of fraud and copyright infringement—belong to you.

We request that you, Mr. President, lean on Mr. Sessions to make sure this gets done, and that all the district courts and federated “state of state” courts operating in this country are either shut down in the case of Municipal United States STATE OF STATE operations, or rigorously required to observe their proper limitations with respect to the actual states and people in the case of Territorial United States Courts.

As the Fiduciary acting in behalf of the actual land jurisdiction states and specifically in behalf of the Colorado State and the Nevada State, I request the immediate release and return of the Bundys who are peaceful Nevada State “vessels” engaged in international trade— Protected Persons – who have been improperly arrested and detained under false presumptions of municipal citizenship by the STATE OF NEVADA and also request the release of the Colorado State Judges who have been similarly wrongfully attacked, mischaracterized and assaulted in violation of their Constitutional guarantees by the STATE OF COLORADO— neither one of which— STATE OF NEVADA or STATE OF COLORADO— have any right to be on our soil in the first place.

We have declared and are declaring to the entire Earth that our land is ours, and despite chicanery to the contrary, we are still here and still the landlords— yes, we mean that literally.  Our land.  Not yours.  Not the Secondaries in a fraudulent bankruptcy.  Not the merely “presumed” Beneficiaries.  Read it. Hear it. Know it for sure.  The heirs of the American states known as American state nationals did not disappear and did not knowingly, willingly declaim their birthright inheritance, either.

You are operating the corporations that are supposed to be delivering the “essential governmental services” our states contracted to receive.  You are supposedly familiar with Article IV of the agreement allowing your organizations and employees known as “citizens” to be here on Nevada State and Colorado State soil.   There is no provision for these incorporated Municipal United States franchises dba STATE OF NEVADA and STATE OF COLORADO to be on our soil and there is certainly no excuse for the Territorial United States allowing these foreign entities to run roughshod over the actual states and people in violation of its own contract and obligation to our national trust.

Sincerely,

Judge Anna Maria Riezinger


Globalists Using Donald Trump To Take America Into War

05/26/2017

http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/Articles/tabid/109/ID/3604/Globalists-Using-Donald-Trump-To-Take-America-Into-War.aspx

By Chuck Baldwin 

One thing globalist Republicans and Democrats both love is WAR. They might squabble over social and domestic issues, but when it comes to war, the two parties are ONE. As I have said repeatedly, there is really only ONE party in Washington, D.C.: the War Party. And “outsider” Donald Trump has quickly mastered the presidential art of killing. Let’s face it: our federal government has become one of the bloodiest regimes in world history. Between the killing of unborn babies and the killing of men, women, and children around the world in our so-called war on terror, the U.S. government is an insatiable, sadistic killing machine. And all of the talk about Donald Trump not being controlled by globalists is just that: TALK. It is more than obvious that Zionist globalists own Trump, lock, stock, and barrel.

Donald Trump’s visit to the Western Wall, which is considered to be the Jews’ holiest site, was a complete embarrassment. Anyone with half a brain knows that the Western Wall is NOT “the last standing wall of the Jewish Second Temple.” The New Testament record and the Jewish historian Josephus are clear that there was NOTHING remaining of the Jewish temple, wall, or city after the siege of Titus in A.D. 70.

“And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things walls? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” (Matthew 24:2)

Josephus wrote: Titus gave orders to “demolish the whole city and temple except for three towers. But for the rest of the wall, it was laid so completely even with the ground by those who dug it up from the foundation, that there was nothing left to make those believe who came hither that it had ever been inhabited.” (“Jewish Wars,” b. 6 chapter 4, section 5-7)

The so-called Western Wall is actually a wall from the Roman Fortress Antonia. It was NEVER part of the Jewish Second Temple. Trump’s sacrilege at the Antonia wall is further evidence of his (and his family’s) total sellout to the false pagan religion of Talmudic, Kabbalah Judaism and its Zionist political wing that is undoubtedly the brains and backbone of the modern globalist New World Order.

I strongly urge readers to get Christian scholar Michael Hoffman’s phenomenal book “Judaism’s Strange Gods” here:

Judaism’s Strange Gods

But I digress.

The signs are everywhere that globalists are using Trump to take America into yet another WAR.

As Major General Smedley Butler (USMC) pointed out, war is the biggest money racket in the world. And he was most certainly right. Nothing lines the pockets of globalists, politicians, and corporatists like WAR. Nothing!

See General Butler’s book, “War Is A Racket,” here:

War Is A Racket

And if Donald Trump is about ANYTHING, he is about MONEY.

While fawning, sycophantic conservatives are hailing Donald Trump’s trip to the Middle East as something akin to the return of Christ, many people realize that Trump’s trip is nothing but a precursor to WAR. Listen to this CIA Case Officer and U.S. Army Intelligence Officer:

“‘I fear that we will be looking at war with Iran before too long as it is clear that Trump and his advisers are already completely in the Israeli and Saudi pockets on the issue,’ [Phil] Giraldi, a former CIA Case Officer and US Army Intelligence Officer said on Monday.

“Giraldi described Trump’s repeated hostile rhetoric against Iran in both Saudi Arabia and Israel a ‘depressing’ indication of the likely future direction of US policy in the Middle East.”

“‘In reality, Iran was a far more open and moderate society than Saudi Arabia,’ Giraldi pointed out.

“‘Iran holds elections, which the Saudis do not do, and it is far outgunned by its enemies in the region. It is no threat to anyone but it is convenient to pretend that it is to support policies that would otherwise be unpalatable,’ Giraldi said.”

“‘In Riyadh, Trump abandoned any pretense of following up on his repeated rhetoric during the US presidential election last year to hold the Saudi leaders accountable for their decades of financial and other support for Islamic extremists,’ Giraldi pointed out.

“‘The Saudis have been, of course, the leading funder of Sunni Islamic terrorism, which Trump would not dare to say,’ he noted.”

See the report:

Trump’s Mideast Tour Paves The Way For War With Iran, Ex-CIA Official Warns

The White House spin on Trump’s trip to the Middle East is that the trip is “an effort to unite three of the world’s leading religious faiths in the common cause of fighting terrorism, reining in Iran and unifying the world against intolerance.” What a bunch of hooey!

“The main purpose of his sojourn is to cut a record arms deal with Saudi Arabia and the other closely aligned Gulf Arab monarchies. While in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, addressing regional leaders about ‘world peace,’ Trump is set to sign off weapons deals worth $350 billion. That’s more than double what his predecessor Barack Obama flogged to the Saudi rulers during his presidency.

“According to Bloomberg, topping the list of US arms transfers are warships, helicopter gunships, anti-missile systems and tanks.”

“The Saudi prince, known as MBS by the Trump inner circle, is the chief strategist behind the Saudi war on Yemen since March 2015. That war is a blatant aggression on Yemen carried out by Saudi forces supplied by the US and Britain. Thousands of children have been killed in Saudi air strikes, using internationally banned cluster bombs in indiscriminate attacks on civilian centers.

“Just days before Trump’s departure to the Middle East, Saudi air strikes reportedly killed 23 civilians, including six children, near the southern Yemeni city of Taiz.

“Millions of other Yemeni children are dying from starvation and preventable diseases like cholera because of a naval blockade imposed on the country by Saudi and American forces. No doubt the new warships that Trump is lining up for Saudi Arabia will add to the ‘efficacy’ of the genocide that is underway in Yemen.

“With staggering cynicism, the Trump administration is ‘justifying’ this ramped-up military support for Saudi Arabia as an effort to ‘fight terrorism’ and to ‘counter Iranian meddling’ in the region.

“It is alleged that Iran is sponsoring militia in Yemen, Syria and Iraq and this is posing a threat to regional stability. Such claims are an insult to common intelligence, when we know that it is the American CIA and their Saudi client regime who have bankrolled and directed terrorism across the entire Middle East over many years in order to serve hegemonic interests of regime change.

“But what is disturbing is just how braindead the Trump administration is. Trump is recklessly promoting the ridiculous fantasy that Saudi Arabia and its despotic terror-sponsoring clients are somehow the custodians of law and order. He is also pumping up the surreal Saudi narrative that Iran is largely responsible for the Middle East’s conflicts.”

“Trump’s messianic zeal to visit the Middle East–his first foreign destination being the dubious human rights ‘haven’ Saudi Arabia–is all about flogging ever more deadly weapons to the already explosively-charged region. So desperate is Trump to pimp billions of dollars that he is willing to fuel war with Iran and perhaps Syria’s other ally, Russia, in the pursuit of lucre.

“And to add further insult to injury, the whole tour of the ‘holy land’ is being sold by the American government and media as some kind of benevolent religious duty to mankind and world peace.

“The only ‘gifts’ that Trump is bringing to Bethlehem and the region are ever more monstrous ways to murder children.”

See the report:

Trump Visits Bethlehem Bearing Gifts To Child Killers

And speaking of “gifts,” let’s not forget that the Saudi’s–along with the United Arab Emirates–have promised to give $100 million to Ivanka Trump Kushner’s foundation. What a coincidence!

I already reported how Donald Trump killed more people in the month of March than all of the so-called terror states of the world combined. And Trump only became a more proficient killer in the month of April. “The Airwars monitoring group has compiled reports of 1,280 to 1,744 civilians killed by at least 2,237 bombs and missiles that rained down from U.S. and allied warplanes in April (1,609 on Iraq and 628 on Syria). The heaviest casualties were in and around Old Mosul and West Mosul, where 784 to 1,074 civilians were reported killed, but the area around Tabqa in Syria also suffered heavy civilian casualties.”

See the report here:

The Silent Slaughter Of The US Air War

This is the same Donald Trump who on the campaign trail told Fox & Friends, “Who blew up the World Trade Center? It wasn’t the Iraqis, it was Saudi–take a look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents.” Now, instead of opening the documents ON Saudi Arabia, Trump is opening the purse FOR Saudi Arabia.

What is it about Christians and conservatives that they can be so easily duped into supporting war? What is it that makes them not only overlook and excuse wars of aggression but also enthusiastically endorse and champion such wars? Nothing builds the size and scope of government like WAR; nothing creates socialist government like WAR; nothing causes people to accept authoritarian government like WAR; nothing separates families like WAR; nothing leaves children homeless and helpless like WAR; nothing fills the political swamp like WAR; nothing empowers globalists like WAR; nothing destroys a country’s economy like WAR; nothing destroys truth like WAR; and nothing sears the conscience of a people like WAR. Yet, professing Christians and conservatives from Alex Jones to Jerry Falwell, Jr. to Mike Huckabee to Tony Perkins continue to laud Donald Trump as a great “conservative” even as he prepares to take America into yet another senseless, unconstitutional, and perhaps global WAR.

P.S. I strongly urge readers to get General Smedley Butler’s book, “War Is A Racket.” It will only take you a few minutes to read this book, but after reading it, you will NEVER look at war the same way again. I wish every American could read this book NOW–before we allow yet another globalist-controlled politician take us into yet another globalist-manipulated war.

INTRODUCTION AND MISSION STATEMENT

05/25/2017

http://www.republicoftheunitedstates.org/

Our Mission is to restore righteous lawful government to the American People.

This is necessary because of the fraud, abuse and theft perpetrated by a for-profit corporate entity known as the UNITED STATES Government. This entity has been posing as the lawful government for nearly 150 years unawares to most Americans.

Beliefs

  • We hold that the American People have a right to know the whole truth
  • We hold that the American People created a Constitutional Republic for the United States of America and never gave permission for a foreign controlled corporation to govern.
  • We hold that the American People have God given unalienable rights as stated in the Declaration of Independence which are reserved exclusively in the Bill of Rights. That no government has any authority to remove, restrict or infringe any of those rights.
  • We hold that the National government is bound by the Constitution for the United States of America and has no authority outside of that contract except for those statutes, laws and treaties that are lawfully legislated which are not repugnant to that contract.
  • We hold that the American People have a right and duty to re-inhabit their Constitutional Republic for the United States of America.
  • We hold to be true the statements of George Washington, John Adams and others who stated similarly, that this form of government would only work for a religious and moral people.
  • We hold to and accept the responsibility of self governance as described by the Declaration of Independence.

Objectives

  • Research and uncover the historical events, documents and organic law which established our nation.
  • Expose those events and documents which unlawfully changed our form of governance.
  • Expose the abuses, fraud and theft committed by the corporation.
  • Establish an interim parallel dejure Republic for the United States of America until the American People conduct permanent lawful elections.
  • Move the American People to an election of office holders and representatives fully restoring the original Constitutional government as defined in the Constitution for the United States of America c. 1789

See Executive Summary for Timeline and Details

INTRODUCTION TO THE REPUBLIC

The Declaration of Independence established the foundation for several key aspects of what would eventually become the Republican Form of Government guaranteed to every State by the Constitution for the United States of America (Article IV, Section 4).

We hold these truths to be self evident:

  • All men are created equal (separate and equal station)
  • They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights
  • That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men
  • Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed
    • laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

In order to understand the foundation of the Government of the United States it is important to not only understand the words that are used in our founding documents and laws but also the context and the paradigm from which they came.  It is well documented that many of the Founders were men who believed in the Bible.  The 1st Amendment that was ratified years later prohibits the Congress from enacting any law that establishes or prohibits the free exercise of one’s religion, however, because of their beliefs many of the words and concepts that are part of the foundation of the United States are defined by Scripture and are discussed here for clarity and because they are fundamental to the authority of We the People.  Any reference is provided that the reader may verify and validate the accuracy of what is presented for your review.

In the beginning God created man (Gen 1:26).  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Gen 1:28)

These two verses establish our authority as men to have separate and equal station among the powers of the earth.  It is from Scripture that we get the word “dominion” which is defined as “Sovereign or supreme authority; the power of governing and controlling.”  Unalienable Rights cannot be taken or given away.  We the People delegated “just powers” by our consent to institute the government of the United States to “secure these rights.”  All political power is inherent in the People.  We the People ARE the government.  If there was no government WHO would perform the duties that were delegated to it?  We the People would, right?  And, if the People did not enumerate it, they reserved it to themselves.  Therefore, if we did not give the power, we retained it.  Once we gave it, we are subject to it and must abide in it.  A Republican Form of Government is “Rule of Law”, not politics, religion, special interests and the like.

In September of 1787 the Continental Congress adopted the Constitution for the United States of America and submitted it back to the State Legislatures for ratification.  So the supreme Law of the Land was not a work of just one political body (the Continental Congress/federal government but also required the approval (ratification) of at least nine of the thirteen original States for it to become Law.  This was accomplished by June of 1788 when New Hampshire became the ninth State which gave the Constitution for the United States force and effect.  By September of 1788 the Founders had passed a resolution to establish a seat of government, when to hold elections and the date that the Government of the United States would begin operations under the Constitution; March 4, 1789.

The Constitution is widely misunderstood.  Some believe that this is where we derive our Rights as Americans.  Some believe that the Constitution is a “living document”.  Some recognize it as a mere inconvenience.  The Bible says in Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”.  The reason that the People of the United States suffer at the hands of an imposter government is for “lack of knowledge”.  This website is devoted to the truth.  The Constitution for the United States of America is a “system” of governance that was established by the consent of the People.  Shouldn’t we KNOW what it says?  The reason it does not “appear” to work is because most do not know what it says?  After all, how can you follow something you have never read?

The Constitution is a body of orders that the People issued to the government to secure their Rights and provide for the things that we have in “common” among the States.  The government Officials and Members of Congress do not answer to the People, they answer to the Constitution.  The Constitution answers to the People!  The Constitution cannot defend itself, it requires “support”.  That is what we are lacking in the United States at this time — “support” for the Constitution.  The oath that the Congress takes is “to support the Constitution of the United States”.  Their oath is not to the People, it is to support the orders of the People which is embodied in the Constitution, Treaties and Statutes of the United States first, and then to the State governments and what is not enumerated is reserved to the People.  There is a great misconception that the People are in charge of the government.  That is simply not so, the government answers to the Constitution, the Constitution answers to the People.

The issues that we face today in America are because the Constitution has not been supported!  It would surprise MOST of America to learn that there are NO political parties in the federal government!  The People did not enumerate in the federal Constitution the power for the government to be partisan in ANY way!  Their only duty is to support the Constitution!  The Constitution secures the Rights of the People.  The powers not given to the federal government were reserved to the State OR to the People.  The People never surrendered Rights or authority; they delegated powers to the government to perform certain duties in a specific way.  And they provided for the government to remove any individual who failed to comply with the duties as ordered.  It is a marvelous system!

In the first session of Congress, the Founders passed the Judiciary Act of 1789.  In section 34 of that Act is says: “And be it further enacted, That the laws of the several states, except where the constitution, treaties or statutes of the United States shall otherwise require or provide, shall be regarded as rules of decision in trials at common law in the courts of the United States in cases where they apply.”  Further, in 1791 The Legislatures of the several States ratified the “Bill of Rights”.  The 5th Amendment to the Constitution says: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

During the decade surrounding the events of the Civil War the Constitution for the United States of America was usurped through unconstitutional acts.  The oath that was established for Congress was changed so that Congress became Officers and not Members who hold seats.  In a Republican Form of Government, those who are elected or appointed go “in our place” to “support the Constitution”.  If no power is given, no action can be taken.  Once established, the Constitution requires “amendment” by a specific process and the Rights of the People cannot be “legislated” away.  The Congress also RE-defined words that have a significant impact on our lives today and mixed the Republican Form of Government that was authorized by the People with a corporate democratic structure.  This comingling of terms, jurisdictions, law forms and politics has led the American People into slavery.  The People have been RE-created as corporate fictions, never authorized by the Constitution.

The Republic for the United States of America is comprised of People just like you.  One must be a citizen of the United States to vote, hold office or be an elector in the Republic.  It is NOT the wicked thing that the Corporation called the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA makes it out to be.  We were born here in America or naturalized according to Law.  We have taken a stand for the truth and invite you to join us in that plight.  There is no need for violence.  We do not require the permission of a fiction to maintain the form of government that WE authorized.  No person in the United States may be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process.  As stated above, the laws of the States are the measure of Law, not the precedent, case law, administrative process, etc…that we have been subjected to all our lives.

There are those who would attempt to have us believe that we CAN be deprived of our Rights without due process.  How can that be true if our Rights are God given and unalienable?  It simply requires the American People to not KNOW the difference.  We have devoted ourselves to learning and disseminating the truth and ask you to join us.

There are a number of ways to “support the Constitution”.  Below you will find a way to sign up to affirm your support.  Every person born or naturalized in the United States is a citizen of the United States and has unalienable Rights.  That is what the Constitution secures to you, and the Republic for the United States of America “supports” the Constitution.  If you are concerned about your name being associated with organizations that are not part of the Corporation and are considered to be part of a “sovereign citizen movement” we understand.  You have several options to affirm your support, volunteer your talents and skills, or just receive updates by email. You are not required to sign up on this site unless you want to take part in filling the vacancies that occurred when the Corporation usurped and set aside the Republican Form of Government during the Civil War.  Each of the several States has already been accepted into the United States and if you were born in one of those States, or naturalized into the United States, your Rights cannot be taken from you.  We are looking for those who are willing to fill the vacancies in the States and federal government during this interim time of government so that we can prepare to have a fully informed, fully disclosed election under the Constitution with the full support of the American People.

I want to support the Constitution and restore the Republic!

This website is for the people. You will find links to conference calls that will help to build your State, links to the House of Representatives gallery, and a prayer call for those who are so inclined, along with tabs that lead to research and education, government contact information and much more.

Please join us in “supporting the Constitution” and to restore the government to lawful operations under the Constitution.

Anyone who believes the transformation back to what we were promised can be accomplished peacefully is pissing in the wind!


Republic Has Fallen: The Deep State’s Plot to Take Over America Has Succeeded

05/24/2017

http://mailchi.mp/rutherford/commentary-the-republic-has-fallen-the-deep-states-plot-to-take-over-america-has-succeeded?e=84f74f6a6a

By John W. Whitehead

May 23, 2017

“You have such a fervent, passionate, evangelical faith in this country…why in the name of God don’t you have any faith in the system of government you’re so hell-bent to protect? You want to defend the United States of America, then defend it with the tools it supplies you with—its Constitution. You ask for a mandate, General, from a ballot box. You don’t steal it after midnight, when the country has its back turned.”—Seven Days in May (1964)

No doubt about it.

The coup d’etat has been successful.

The Deep State—a.k.a. the police state a.k.a. the military industrial complex—has taken over.

The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law here at home and by fomenting wars abroad.

When in doubt, follow the money trail.

It always points the way.

Every successive president starting with Franklin D. Roosevelt has been bought—lock, stock and barrel—and made to dance to the tune of the Deep State.

Even Dwight D. Eisenhower, the retired five-star Army general -turned-president who warned against the disastrous rise of misplaced power by the military industrial complex was complicit in contributing to the build-up of the military’s role in dictating national and international policy.

Enter Donald Trump, the candidate who swore to drain the swamp in Washington DC.Instead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump has paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military industrial complex, and the Deep State to feast on the carcass of the dying American republic.

 

Just recently, for instance, Trump—boasting about the “purchase of lots of beautiful military equipment because nobody makes it like the United States—agreed to sell Saudi Arabia more than $110 billion in military weapons and “tanks and helicopters for border security, ships for coastal security, intelligence-gathering aircraft, a missile-defense radar system, and cybersecurity tools.”Meanwhile, Trump—purportedly in an effort to balance the budget in 10 years—wants to slash government funding for programs for the poor, ranging from health care and food stamps to student loans and disability payments.

 

The military doesn’t have to worry about tightening its belt, however. No, the military’s budget—with its trillion dollar wars, its $125 billion in administrative waste, and its contractor-driven price gouging that hits the American taxpayer where it hurts the most—will continue to grow, thanks to Trump.

This is how you keep the Deep State in power.

The rich will get richer, the poor will get poorer, the military will get more militaristic, America’s endless wars will get more endless, and the prospect of peace will grow ever dimmer.

As for the terrorists, they will keep on being played for pawns as long as Saudi Arabia remains their breeding ground and America remains the source of their weapons, training and know-how (15 of the 19 terrorists—including Osama bin Laden—who carried out the 9/11 attacks were from Saudi Arabia).

Follow the money.  It always points the way.

As Bertram Gross noted in Friendly Fascism: The New Face of Power in America, “evil now wears a friendlier face than ever before in American history.”

Writing in 1980, Gross predicted a future in which he saw:

…a new despotism creeping slowly across America. Faceless oligarchs sit at command posts of a corporate-government complex that has been slowly evolving over many decades. In efforts to enlarge their own powers and privileges, they are willing to have others suffer the intended or unintended consequences of their institutional or personal greed. For Americans, these consequences include chronic inflation, recurring recession, open and hidden unemployment, the poisoning of air, water, soil and bodies, and, more important, the subversion of our constitution. More broadly, consequences include widespread intervention in international politics through economic manipulation, covert action, or military invasion…

This stealthy, creeping, silent coup that Gross prophesied is the same danger that writer Rod Serling warned against in the 1964 political thriller Seven Days in May, which put the military in charge of a coup that would institute martial law packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security.

On the big screen, the military coup is foiled and the republic is saved in a matter of hours. In the real world, however, the plot thickens and spreads out over the past half century.

We’ve been losing our freedoms so incrementally for so long—sold to us in the name of national security and global peace, maintained by way of martial law disguised as law and order, and enforced by a standing army of militarized police and a political elite determined to maintain their powers at all costs—that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it all started going downhill, but we’re certainly on that downward trajectory now, and things are moving fast.

The question is no longer whether the U.S. government will be preyed upon and taken over by the military industrial complex. That’s a done deal.

The “government of the people, by the people, for the people” has perished.

It will not be revived or restored without a true revolution of values and a people’s rebellion the likes of which we may not see for a very long time.

America is a profitable business interest for a very select few, and war—wars waged abroad against shadowy enemies and wars waged at home against the American people—has become the Deep State’s primary means of income.

If America has been at war more than we’ve been at peace over the past half century, it’s because the country is in the clutches of a greedy military empire with a gargantuan, profit-driven appetite for war. Indeed, the U.S. has been involved in an average of at least one significant military action per year, “ranging from significant fighting in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan to lesser incursions in such far-flung countries as Kuwait, Bosnia, Pakistan, Libya, Grenada, Haiti and Panama… That total does not count more limited U.S. actions, such as drone strikes.”

War is big business.

In order to maintain a profit margin when there are no more wars to be fought abroad, one would either have to find new enemies abroad or focus on fighting a war at home, against the American people, and that’s exactly what we’re dealing with today.

Wars waged abroad to the tune of trillions of dollars since 9/11.

Military equipment sold to foreign enemies.

Local police transformed into a standing army in the American homeland through millions of dollars’ worth of grants to local police agencies for military weapons, vehicles, training and assistance.

The public acclimated to the sights and sounds of martial law through urban training exercises wherein military troops rappel from Black Hawk helicopters in cities across the country, from Miami and Chicago to Minneapolis, to domestic military training drills timed and formulated to coincide with or portend actual crises.

The citizenry taught to fear and distrust each other and to welcome the metal detectors and pat downs in their schools, bag searches in their train stations, tanks and military weaponry used by their small town police forces, surveillance cameras in their traffic lights, police strip searches on their public roads, unwarranted blood draws at drunk driving checkpoints, whole body scanners in their airports, and government agents monitoring their communications.

Had the government tried to ram such a state of affairs down our throats suddenly, it might have had a rebellion on its hands.

Instead, the American people have been given the boiling frog treatment, immersed in water that slowly is heated up—degree by degree—so that they’ve fail to notice that they’re being trapped and cooked and killed.

“We the people” are in hot water now.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the Constitution doesn’t stand a chance against a federalized, globalized standing army protected by legislative, judicial and executive branches that are all on the same side, no matter what political views they subscribe to: suffice it to say, they are not on our side or the side of freedom.

From Clinton to Bush, then Obama and now Trump, it’s as if we’ve been caught in a time loop, forced to re-live the same thing over and over again: the same assaults on our freedoms, the same disregard for the rule of law, the same subservience to the Deep State, and the same corrupt, self-serving government that exists only to amass power, enrich its shareholders and ensure its continued domination.

The republic has fallen to fascism with a smile.

As Bertram Gross wrote in what may have been his most prescient warning:

In 1935 Sinclair Lewis wrote a popular novel in which a racist, anti-Semitic, flag-waving, army-backed demagogue wins the 1936 presidential election and proceeds to establish an Americanized version of Nazi Germany. The title, It Can’t Happen Here, was a tongue-in-cheek warning that it might. But the “it” Lewis referred to is unlikely to happen again any place… Anyone looking for black shirts, mass parties, or men on horseback will miss the telltale clues of creeping fascism. In any First World country of advanced capitalism, the new fascism will be colored by national and cultural heritage, ethnic and religious composition, formal political structure, and geopolitical environment… In America, it would be supermodern and multi-ethnic-as American as Madison Avenue, executive luncheons, credit cards, and apple pie. It would be fascism with a smile. As a warning against its cosmetic facade, subtle manipulation, and velvet gloves, I call it friendly fascism. What scares me most is its subtle appeal.

I am worried by those who fail to remember-or have never learned -that Big Business-Big Government partnerships, backed up by other elements, were the central facts behind the power structures of old fascism in the days of Mussolini, Hitler, and the Japanese empire builders. I am worried by those who quibble about labels… I am upset with those who prefer to remain spectators until it may be too late… I am appalled by those who stiffly maintain that nothing can be done until things get worse or the system has been changed. I am afraid of inaction. I am afraid of those who will heed no warnings and who wait for some revelation, research, or technology to offer a perfect solution. I am afraid of those who do not see that some of the best in America has been the product of promises and that the promises of the past are not enough for the future. I am dismayed by those who will not hope, who will not commit themselves to something larger than themselves, of those who are afraid of true democracy or even its pursuit.

Elections will not save us.

Learn the treacherous lessons of 2008 and 2016:  presidential elections have made a mockery of our constitutional system of government, suggesting that our votes can make a difference when, in fact, they merely serve to maintain the status quo.

Don’t delay.

Start now—in your own communities, in your schools, at your city council meetings, in newspaper editorials, at protests—by pushing back against laws that are unjust, police departments that overreach, politicians that don’t listen to their constituents, and a system of government that grows more tyrannical by the day.

If you wait until 2020 to rescue our republic from the clutches of the Deep State, it will be too late.
