The Hole in Our Mind

By Anna Von Reitz

One summer a friend of mine worked in a tomato harvesting factory.  She worked in the Sorting Room — a huge warehouse-like facility with conveyor belts running along tables and teams of workers standing on either side of the belt pitching rotten tomatoes into bins and gradually separating produce quality fruits from canning quality fruits.  It was quite an operation and over time, the workers became very adept at plucking tomatoes off the conveyor and sending them here, there, and everywhere that tomatoes needed to go.

Our brains have similar capacities for sorting information.  We are able to process large quantities of input via our neural nets and respond appropriately most of the time based on our sensors and our information sieves that sorts out our thoughts the same way that those workers sorted tomatoes.

Some thoughts are big enough to rise to the level of consciousness, while other thoughts get shuttled away into the trash bin or warehoused for future reference or even acted upon without any very conscious thought taking place at all.  We even have built in information categories that batch together similar thoughts or similar kinds of information and we have biases related to our perceptions that help keep us from being overwhelmed.

We learn that, statistically, that tickle on the arm is most likely caused by a mosquito, not a spider, not a wasp, not a bee, not a twig hanging down from a nearby tree. So we act upon our sensory perceptions according to patterns and habits and prior experiences, which provide us with assumptions about all the various stimuli we receive.

Sometimes this lack of care in observing actual facts in favor of assumptions about facts costs us very dearly, especially when our assumptions are provably wrong and we cling to them anyway.

This is what I call the “Hole in Our Mind” phenomenon. Suddenly, without any warning, a gaping hole appears in our mental conveyor belt and all the “tomatoes” — our thoughts — get dumped into an unseen trash bin under the table and we just carry on as if nothing happened.

Mankind as a whole isn’t able to deal with certain perceptual realities.

For example, we consistently get mixed up about the relationship between an actual thing and a symbolic representation of it.  This weakness is fully exploited by the purveyors of money, who give you an intrinsically worthless representation of value — a coin, a pretty piece of paper, a wampum bead or whatever — and confuse you into believing that the symbol has value commensurate with what it represents.

Queen Semiramis began the practice of representing the value of a bushel of wheat as a small gold coin with a picture of a basket of wheat stamped on it.  That way instead of transporting actual bushels of wheat back and forth, she could just move the value of the wheat using symbols.  Money was born.

Suddenly, you could represent the market value of forty bushels of wheat as a small pile of coins, and that was, of course, very convenient.  As long as nobody caught on or objected, you could trade the value of those forty bushels of wheat —supposedly represented by those forty little coins—- for ten horses and two large sacks of figs.  Why not?

The fact that there is in fact a very large difference between forty bushels of wheat and forty little coins “representing” wheat quickly got lost in the neural net, dropped through the hole in our mind, and the game was on.  Suddenly those little gold coins were thought to have intrinsic value in-and-of-themselves.  They were magic coins. They could be transformed into any good or service so long as people would trade for them.

Alas, inflation set in, and the Queen began stamping two bushels of wheat on each coin.  By the end of the first great experiment with money, there were thirty-one tiny, tiny wheat baskets being stamped on each coin and one day the people woke up and said, “There’s no way that this little coin is worth thirty-one bushels of wheat!”

Everyone got upset.  Wars were fought.  The economy and the civilization it supported collapsed.

Did we stop and learn anything from that?  Not a bit.  The idea of “representing the value” of actual commodities using coins and other symbols–even digits in a bank ledger— had taken hold, and even though we have cause to know that this is logically impossible, we can’t seem to shake the delusion. It drops right through the hole in our minds.

No doubt our Creator knew about this design flaw in our logic sensors and that is why at Exodus 20:4 we read that we are not to take unto ourselves any graven image “representing” anything at all.  What does it mean to “take unto” ourselves?  To accept in trade, to receive, to hold onto graven images— money, in other words.

As usual, the Bible forewarns us and gives us good advice, which we ignore and then suffer from as a result.  Within the context of scripture, graven images  are idols and the use of money to “represent” other things is every bit as much a part of idolatry as using a little carved statue to represent a god.

And it is just as silly and primitive, too.

Consider this fact— if I were to gather all the priests and pastors and teachers of Islam together in a great convocation — who among them would not be an idolater if I had them empty their pockets?

Somehow we have to mentally grow up and step far enough back and away from what we are doing to realize that the whole idea of money is an illusion which has enslaved us and made us dependent upon the purveyors of money—which is nothing but another “manufactured commodity” to be managed and manipulated by goons.

We are so far deluded about money that we don’t even realize that we can carve our own littleTiki-gods and set a price on them and be much farther ahead without all the middlemen.

Maybe its time that we took the Bible’s advice, realized that symbolic thinking is not our forte, and focused on learning to give each other credit, instead.

Survey: Okay To Kill Two Million People In A Preemptive Nuclear Attack

12/30/2017

Revisiting Hiroshima In Iran: What Americans Really Think About Using Nuclear Weapons And Killing Noncombatants

By Chuck Baldwin

A recent survey conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) revealed a chilling discovery: a majority of Americans are apparently agreeable to preemptively nuking other nations, knowing that millions of civilians would die. The theoretical nation used in the survey was Iran. And the MIT survey found that 60% of the American people would be willing to preemptively nuke Iran, knowing that 2 million civilians would be killed. (How paradoxical that I am reporting on this unnerving news on the day that we remember when Japan preemptively attacked our naval installations at Pearl Harbor in 1941.)

This new survey is a reversal of decades of public opinion regarding the use of atomic or nuclear weapons following Harry Truman’s decision to drop atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, in 1945, which resulted in the deaths of some 120,000 Japanese people—most of whom were civilians. Plus, those were immediate deaths; they do not count the thousands who died slow, agonizing deaths from radiation poisoning.

From 1945 to the early 2000s, virtually every survey confirmed that the American people saw the atomic bombings on Japan as morally wrong and did not want to see a repeat of the bombings. It seemed that the American citizenry had a renewed understanding and reverence for “Just War” principles that valued the innocent lives of foreigners following the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. From the early 2000s to the present day, however, the American people seem to have lost their reverence for “Just War” and their respect for innocent lives in other countries.

It is not surprising to me that of the respondents who favored nuking and killing 2 million Iranians, most were Republicans (approximately 70%). I have said for years that conservatives and, especially, Christians (who comprise a large percentage of the Republican Party) have become rabid warmongers. I was not wrong.

See the MIT survey here:

Because G.W. Bush was seen as a devout “born again” Christian and had the support of the entire Religious Right, I tried to warn people that when Bush introduced his preemptive war doctrine and invaded Iraq and Afghanistan—and simultaneously launched his “war on terror” (meaning war on Muslims, except for Muslims in Saudi Arabia, of course)—he was in the process of forever changing the fundamental philosophy and theology of America’s Christians. And, again, I was not wrong.

And now Donald Trump is taking the war fever implanted in conservatives and Christians by G.W. Bush to a whole new level.

Of course, Trump is not alone in beating the drums for nuclear war. For all intents and purposes, FOX News could accurately be labeled a “ministry of (war) propaganda.” FOX celebrities such as Sean Hannity and Mike Huckabee constantly beat the war drums. And they are not alone either. Republican pastors throughout America use a twisted interpretation of Scripture to work their Christian congregations into a war fever almost every Sunday. I’m talking about pastors such as John Hagee, Jerry Falwell, Jr., and Robert Jeffress. You know: the same ones who are Trump’s “spiritual advisors.”

After reading the MIT survey, international lawyer and journalist Darius Shahtahmasebi wrote, “One would have to wonder if most Americans are even aware that the Trump administration is spending billions of dollars developing its nuclear technology far beyond what America’s rivals can match. Recognizing the nuclear threat America poses to Russia and its interests, particularly by having NATO members surround Russia with its anti-missile defense system, Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a warning last year that Russia was modernizing its missile systems in preparation for what’s to come.

“Russia has also warned multiple times about attacking Iran and views Iran as a strategic ally. This is just one of the factors Americans should take into account when considering the use of nuclear weapons.”

Ask the 70% of Republicans who favor killing 2 million Iranian civilians in a preemptive nuclear attack to name exactly what Iran has done to merit such death and destruction, and it is doubtful that nary a one could come up with an answer. All they know is that Donald Trump and James Mattis and Sean Hannity and Mike Huckabee and John Hagee and Robert Jeffress and, oh yes, Benjamin Netanyahu say that Iran (and Syria) is “bad” and must be destroyed.

Donald Trump, Republican neocons, and evangelical Christians seem to be salivating for global war. The neocons in Washington, D.C., are working to achieve a Rothschild/Goldman Sachs economic hegemony over the world. And conservative Christians are working to give the Zionist State of Israel political and military hegemony over the Middle East and trying to help usher in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ (as if He needs their help).

I’ll say it plainly: modern evangelical Christianity has been co-opted by Talmudic Zionism. Dispensational prophecy teaching regarding the modern State of Israel has turned Christians—who ostensibly have dedicated themselves to following the Prince of Peace—into cold, callused purveyors of WAR.

Yes, all of this war fever is due to ONE thing: blind support for the Zionist State of Israel.

Christians have been misled into believing that the Rothschild Zionist State of Israel created in 1948 is Biblical Israel. IT IS NOT. Modern Israel is NOT Biblical Israel; modern Jerusalem is NOT Biblical Jerusalem. They are not remotely the same.

Now these misguided Christian Zionist zealots have convinced Donald Trump that he is on some kind of holy crusade in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Folks, the Biblical city of Jerusalem was completely and thoroughly destroyed by God in 70 AD and does not exist—not in any shape, manner, or form. Even the Western Wall (sometimes called the “Wailing Wall”) was not part of the Biblical city of Jerusalem. As I have noted before, the so-called Western Wall that is purported to be “the last standing wall of the Jewish Second Temple” was actually not part of the wall of Jerusalem at all.

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 70 AD.

“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 KJV)

Josephus wrote: Titus gave orders to “demolish the whole city and temple except 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.

The Roman emperor Hadrian constructed a new city (built in Roman style) over the ruins of the Biblical city of Jerusalem around 136 AD that was called Aelia (his family name in Rome) Capitolina (honoring the Roman gods of the Capitoline Triad: Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva). And let’s not forget that the many wars and invasions surrounding what was initially named Aelia Capitolina and is now again called Jerusalem includes “The Siege of Jerusalem” of 614 AD, when Jews slaughtered tens of thousands of Christians in the city and destroyed their monuments and churches, including the original Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Over the millennia, the city has been occupied by Romans, Persians, Byzantines, Arabs (including Christian Arabs), Muslims, Greeks, Bulgarians, Georgians, Armenians, Syrians, Egyptians, Maronites, Jacobites, Coptics (Egyptian Christians), Ottoman Turks, the British, and now Ashkenazi Jews or Zionists.

Again, the current city of Jerusalem is NOT Biblical Jerusalem. Therefore, all of the Biblical references made to it by modern Christians are sorely misapplied.

When the Apostle Paul looked at the Biblical city of Jerusalem around 60 AD (ten years before God used the Roman General—later the Roman Caesar—Titus to utterly destroy the city in fulfillment of the prophecy of Jesus in Matthew 24), he said, “Jerusalem which now is . . . is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” (Galatians 4:25, 26 KJV)

The Biblical city of Jerusalem in Judea was under the bondage of the corruption and wickedness of the Pharisees and the Caesars and was destined for destruction by God. The Christians in Paul’s day had absolutely NO scriptural loyalty or duty to that doomed and damned city. And that was true BEFORE God destroyed the city. To think that Christians today have some kind of scriptural loyalty or duty to a Roman-built pagan city—a city that is a modern spiritual fraud and that is currently controlled by anti-Christ Talmudists and Zionists—is lunacy. The only Jerusalem that Christians have any loyalty and duty to is the “Jerusalem which is above,” also called “new Jerusalem” (Revelation 3:12; 21:2), “heavenly Jerusalem” (Hebrews 12:22), and “holy Jerusalem” (Revelation 21:10), the city not made with hands.

Moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem holds ZERO spiritual significance and ZERO political benefit. Instead, in the modern geopolitical environment, Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a deliberate incitement of war. It gives U.S. condonance and recognition to an illegal occupation force, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), and it condemns Palestinian Christians and Muslims to greater persecution and oppression.

It is obvious that TRUMP WANTS WAR—and apparently so do a majority of Christian Zionists in this country. Of course, the warmongering Christian Zionists think they are all going to be “raptured” to heaven before the nuclear Armageddon that they are helping to create incinerates THEM. They are in for a very rude awakening.

This new philosophy adopted by the American people—abandoning “Just War” principles—is the direct result of the combined indoctrination emanating from FOX News and, especially, from America’s evangelical pulpits.

Long gone are the Biblical principles of Natural Law—including the Law of Nations. Long gone are the principles and wisdom of America’s Founding Fathers. I tell you, folks: when 70% of conservatives and Christians in the Republican Party believe it is right to murder 2 million innocent people in a preemptive nuclear attack, it is VERY late in the day for our country.

This reality is another illustration of just how important it is that Americans be educated in the founding principles of our nation. This was the motivation behind our production of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS.

We began offering THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS nearly 20 years ago, in which we compiled dozens of the greatest documents of American history in one beautiful volume.

Now, for the very first time, we have revised THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS, which includes the addition of 13 brand new documents—along with the expansion of several existing documents (and also including a brand new beautiful front cover)—bringing the total number of full-size pages to 212. That’s over 40 pages more than the original FREEDOM DOCUMENTS.

I am truly excited about this brand new edition of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS. The documents we have added make this volume the greatest collection of the most important documents of liberty and constitutional government ever produced—documents that, if applied, would restore the blessings of Heaven to our land.

This unique compilation of America’s greatest documents is available nowhere else.

You can have these great documents at your fingertips in one beautifully bound, easy-to-read format. These are the documents that gave birth to the greatest free nation on earth. Again, nowhere else that we know of can you find these documents complete in one volume under one title. This compilation of documents is available only here—and this special Christmas printing is very limited and will not last long. Plus, if you want a copy of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS it is important that you order NOW.

To order or to learn more about THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS, go here:

THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS

Unless someone or something is able to bring them to their senses, I fear that warmongering preachers and politicians in America are about to unleash a global catastrophe unlike the world has ever known. And if that happens, it would be the principles of liberty contained in THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS that would, once again, save the world from perpetual darkness. And it is also the liberty principles contained in THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS that could prevent such a catastrophe from ever taking place.

MAGAnomics As Predicted:The Federal Reserve is Fighting Itself

12/28/2017

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/07/14/maganomics-as-predicted-the-federal-reserve-is-fighting-itself/

← Au revoir Paris – President Macron to President Trump: “We have a friendship that transcends time”….

Mick Mulvaney Introduces “MAGAnomics”… →

by sundance

In 2016 CTH first predicted the intellectual economic disconnect that would arise out of the paradigm shift in economic principles. Initially I called it “the economic third dimension” – SEE HERE.

As time progressed through the second fiscal quarter of 2017 (Jan-March) again, we noted how the Federal Reserve was exactly failing to understand this “third dimension”; the space between Wall Street and Main Street fiscal policy – SEE HERE.

Finally today, for the first time, we see a federal reserve voting official begin to question the underlying economic assumptions of the Fed. Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans is the first federal official to identify the disconnect between federal economic policy and actual economic outcomes:

WASHINGTON – […] Inflation has run below the Fed’s 2 percent target over the past eight years, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans noted.

“This is a serious policy outcome miss,” he said in remarks prepared for a conference in Idaho.

[…] Even as inflation has tumbled this year, Fed officials have brushed it off, indicating that they believe that one-off factors are keeping prices low. Those include cellphone service prices cratering because of carriers bidding to offer unlimited data plans. Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen and others have suggested that inflation is likely to head back up after those temporary price drops slow overall prices.

“My inflation outlook is not quite as sanguine,” said Evans, setting himself apart from others at the central bank. He added that the Fed needs to hit the 2 percent target “sooner rather than later.”

Evans’ comments are the first sign of a Fed official appearing to reconsider plans to continuing raising interest rates this year. Evans is a voting member of the Fed’s monetary policy committee. He has voted twice this year to increase rates.

But inflation has continued to move lower, testing the Fed’s patience. The Consumer Price Index fell in June to 1.6 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday.

Fed officials favor rising inflation not for its own sake, but as a sign that the economy is running as well as it could. Predictable 2 percent annual inflation, they believe, allows for businesses and individuals to plan ahead. (read more)

It is not “one-off factors”. The cause of inflationary outcomes not matching Fed predictions, is specifically because we are inside the inverse Maganomic space.

Yeah, forgive me – but I’m feeling a little vindicated after a year where multiple “intellectuals” stated my fundamental outlook on the U.S. economy was a theory too far ‘out there‘ to be real.  This ‘out there‘ theory is quickly becoming the ‘right here‘ reality.

As we shared at the beginning of the 3rd quarter (April-June) , I repeat as we begin the 4th quarter (July – Sept).

People may ignore this, but it does not change reality.

A series of recent headline articles [Jan-Feb ’17] – about traditional economic analysts, government and private, perplexed by financial and consumer trends – highlights the disconnect inherent amid those who cannot reset their frame of economic reference.

For 30+ years U.S. economic political policy has been driven by Wall Street interests. STOP. Main Street, the middle-class and the American worker have suffered. STOP. The successful election of Donald Trump, and the execution of his “main street” economic policy agenda, has sledgehammered the prior economic machine into a full seizure an halt.

(WSJ Article Link)

It was Albert Einstein who aptly stated:

“The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.”

The same basic principle applies to those who are trying to understand and evaluate current economic activity yet failing to disengage themselves from their historic economic frames of reference.

The mindset framed around thirty years of financial political policy, intended to influence the U.S. economy and created by vested interests who were building out the legislative priorities based on Wall Streets’ best interests, will struggle to understand the new landscape which is entirely formulated to benefit Main Street.

The two economic engines, Main Street and Wall Street, are entirely detached. Time, along with focus only on Wall Street interests, has pushed those two economic engines further apart.  No-one is understanding the space between the two engines. The same policies which worked in the immediate past will not work in the immediate future.

(WSJ Article Link)

The new dimension in U.S. economics  is de-emphatic consumer spending on low-turn durable goods (measured by fed), and emphatic consumer spending on high-turn consumable goods (not measured by fed).

Just Keep Watching!

The two economic engines are now in reverse level of importance.  Trump economics or “MAGAnomics” focuses on Main Street’s economic engine.  The Fed is stuck focusing on the economy through the three-decades-old prism of Wall Street’s economic engine.

We are now in the economic space between both engines. The traditional cause and effect (Fed) is now uncoupled.  The administrators of the economy are perplexed; this is unfamiliar terrain.

  • Wage rates will be driven up by inflation in ‘non-measured’ high-turn, domestic  consumable goods: food, fuel, energy.  The Fed does not measure this segment for inflation.
  • Inflation, from the perspective of the Fed will appear artificially low because prices on the measured segment will be static: non-domestic durable goods, housing etc.  Durable good prices will remain static, and in the short term fall surreptitiously – seemingly unattached to the larger expanding economy.

Until the two economies gain parity – any fed activity, taken as a consequence to their familiar traditional measurements (inflation, interest rates etc.), will have minimal to negligible impact on Main Street.

Home values and local economic factors will be driven by “regional” economies. Period.

The exact same areas of the country which have gone through two decades of economic contraction will now see economic expansion and revitalization.  The Fed policy which influences Wall Street was not, and is not, domestic centric.  The fed policy is corporate driven, globalist in influence.

If you are making economic decisions, large purchase decisions, over the next year to year-and-a-half, take this into consideration.   Large durable goods will become cheaper over the next six months bottoming out sometime around Christmas 2017/Spring 2018.

Auto Sector. – Any auto lease rate in the next 6 months to a year will go up, considerably.  Don’t lease a car mid 2017 through all of 2018.  Actuarials are trying to gauge the forecast incoming glut of auto inventory due to high lease rates in 2016 (30%+) that will be turned in late ’17 and throughout ’18.

Conversely, late 2017 through 2018/2019 the price of a low mileage used car (former lease) will necessarily plummet.  If you are thinking of purchasing a vehicle, wait about six months and then consider a solid used vehicle.  You’ll be able to buy a two-year-old low mileage $100k+ high-end luxury vehicle for the same price as a mid-size economy car.

Regional economies will continue to drive home values.

  • Areas which benefited from high yield and high rates of return from Wall Street, ie. investment benefactors, will begin economic contraction. The downstream effect on retail and high-end service industries will also be negatively impacted.
  • However, industrial areas with affordable housing and infrastructure, which have suffered in the past 20+ years, will see home values increasing as the local economy expands.

National policy (Trump Policy) which benefits Main Street also benefits local economics which are founded in manufacturing, production, and ancillary services.  In essence, the Middle-Class.

Those who benefited from high-yield international investment income will see less income.  Those who live on savings will see a moderate benefit.  However, those living day-to-day and week-to-week on their paychecks will see much more income.  Believe it.

 

 

 


CNN’S “Useful Idiot” Jake Tapper Cheerleads Muslims To Serve In American Government

12/27/2017

“Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine. . . . Far from being rivals or enemies, religion (Christian faith) and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants. Indeed, these two sciences run into each other.” – James Wilson, U. S. Supreme Court Justice & signer of the Constitution

Before we get to the pith and the marrow of this important topic of countering revisionist and CNN “Useful Idiot” Jake Tapper concerning a “religious test,” we must first understand that the term “religion” to the Forefathers always fell underneath the umbrella of the Christian faith (Lutheran, Catholic, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Methodist, Wesleyan, Baptist etc… Not Hindu, Islam, Buddhist, etc.)

 

For example, if I were to go to India, I would expect them to rule according to their religious beliefs of Hinduism, and they do.

If I went to China, I would expect them to rule according to their religion of Buddhism, and they do.

If I went to a Muslim nation, I would expect that they would oppress through their religious totalitarian methods of Sharia law, and they do.

Furthermore, do you suppose for one minute that Barack Hussein Obama would have been elected president or given a pass to entertain America’s enemies within the people’s White House or to “fundamentally transform” America if he did not lie and profess to be a Christian? No way.

OBUMA WOULD NOT MAKE A PIMPLE ON A CHRISTIANS BUTT! – – – OLDDOG

So, in America, a Christian nation, it should come as no surprise to rule according to the Mosaic Institution, and so we do (Exodus 18:21).

[YouTube Video]

[Facebook/CNN Video]

As you can see, Jake Tapper questioned Roy Moore’s comment in which he stated that a “Muslim” should not be allowed to be a member of Congress, by asking why and under what Constitutional provision?

What are you saying Jake, that some representatives are to uphold our enumerated Laws and some are okay to transgress and destroy? Is that somehow permissible?

This is what he is clearly stating.  If there is no vow to serve “We the People” honestly, being held accountable before the One true God, then what will be the consequence?

“If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate.” -Siraj Wahhaj

Countering this lunacy…

“And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without (Christian) religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious (Christian) principle.” – Charles Carrol, signer of the Declaration of Independence

Maybe, Muslim cheerleader Jake Tapper has mysteriously conjured up that those who mean to conquer and destroy this country have the freedom to do so.  Apparently, Mr. Tapper does not realize that his freedoms come from one God and His Son, Jesus Christ (John 8:36; 2 Corinthians 3:17).

According to many ignorant Americans, Freedom of Religion now means whatever they want it to mean, and that to their own demise (Proverbs 26:27), even when it runs antithetical to our Constitutional Republic, which is based upon the Mosaic institution called Common Law.

Though they may be afforded asylum here, those individuals that come to America should be processed into American society, by being properly vetted to assimilate to our ways of life before they serve anybody.

[YouTube Video]

Common sense does come into play here.

First, it is clear that our rights come from the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Second, remember that our Right-Giver did not give us a right to transgress His law (1 John 3:4) and serve other gods (Exodus 20:3-5).

Furthermore, America is a self-professed Christian nation and to do otherwise will bring about war within the gates (Judges 5:8).

Jake Tapper then goes on to tell his guest, “You don’t actually have to swear in on a Christian Bible, You can swear in on anything really, I don’t know if you knew that?”

Did anything, or did someone bestow His blessing’s on this country? (Acts 14:17)

Just think of that.

This communicates to the people and those who represent them that we are not accountable nor obligated to uphold the laws of the Lawgiver, who saved us from our sins (Matthew 1:21) and maintains our freedoms, which feeds into a system of anarchy while giving power to the state.

Jake Tapper clearly has an evolutionary view of government.

Is this the example set before us by the American founders of this country? Absolutely not!

Here, in part, are some of the oaths of affirmation in America before one could serve.

Delaware Constitutional requirements for men in office:

“I do profess faith in God the Father, and in Jesus Christ His only Son, and in the Holy Ghost, blessed forevermore…”

Pennsylvania’s Constitution:

“I do believe in One God, the Creator and Governor of the universe, the rewarder of the good and the punisher of the wicked…”

The Massachusetts Constitution is along the same lines.

North Carolina’s Constitution:

“No person who shall deny the being of God, or the truth of the {Christian} religion, or the divine authority whither of the Old or New Testaments, or who shall hold religious principles incompatible with the freedom and safety of the state, shall be capable of holding office, or place of trust or profit in the civil department, within the state.”

Every state in our American union starts out acknowledging, guess who? You got it!

[YouTube Video]

The Constitution

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States. – Article 6, Section 3, US Constitution

Let’s tear down (Judges 6:25-32) the revisionists and their purposefully distorted version of what our Founders have clearly bestowed upon us.

[YouTube Video]

BTW, Wikipedia also has a No Religious Test Clause on their site in accordance with the lies of the American Civil Liberties Union. It stated:

This clause is cited by advocates of separation of church and state as an example of the “original intent” of the Framers of the Constitution to avoid any entanglement between church and state, or involving the government in any way as a determiner of religious beliefs or practices. This is significant because this clause represents the words of the original Framers, even prior to the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

Remember, founder of the ACLU Roger Baldwin said, “Communism is the goal.”

[YouTube Video]

[YouTube Video]

It comes to this:  These media outlets, useful idiots, and organizations clearly fly in the face of everything that we are.

Either we are one nation under God, or we are one nation gone under! (Psalm 33:12)

Causes for Peace

12/26/2017

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/12/causes-for-peace.html

By Anna Von Reitz

I was recently asked my opinion about the situation in the Middle East.  This was carefully couched with all sorts of historical and political considerations and rationalizations.  To me, it all comes down to scripture, and whether or not you believe it.

If you believe scripture then there is no mystery whatsoever involved in the situation in the Middle East.

It says that if the Hebrew people (both Jew and Israelite from the Ten Tribes qualify) obey and follow the Law and precepts given to them, they will be blessed and will flourish and have abundance and peace and all good things. If they don’t follow the Law and precepts, they will be cursed in equal measures, and the scriptures then go on and describe what these curses will be.

Carrot and stick. It was the way the Lord had of dealing with stiff-necked people.

You want it this way, or you want it that way, and it’s your free choice.

Now, nothing the Lord does is happenstance.  And nothing He does changes unless He changes it. So you can be sure that the same choice is there for them today.  You want peace…… you want war….. it’s up to you.

As for the Arabs, the sons of Abraham by Hagar, they are not cursed and they are not prohibited from living in the land of Israel, but the land of Israel is not promised to them.  They have all the land outside of Israel, and nothing to complain of, because their own land is or can be as fair as anything in Israel. All they have to do is stop being jealous and stubborn and make use of modern technology to make the desert bloom again.

The entire region can be a garden.

They have all the energy they could ever need and with all the new tech that is available now, they can have all the fresh water they need.  Throw in some vegetable seeds and tree seedlings and the entire Middle East will bloom.  Imagine olive groves and cedar groves and apples and oranges and pecans and every kind of good growing thing taking root and growing where there are bare rocks and sand dunes now.

Today, we can do this.

All that is needed is for the different “sides” of this one family to wake up and heal their differences and stop being jealous of each other.  What was given to one is not given to the other, but look at what is possible?

When my Father died and it came time for my Sister and I to split up the property I gave her whatever she wanted.  Freely.  She had first choice of everything.  So she can never complain with me for the choices she made, but as the years have gone by, she has found that she regrets some things. She feels bad for having taken things she knew I liked and wants to give them back.

The fact is that we all have our blessings, things that are hand-tailored for us and given to us, and if someone else takes those things they bring them no joy. Why?  Because in some special way, those things belong to us, and no force or fraud or happenstance can chance that.  What God gives, He gives.

So it isn’t even generosity on our parts to give back what is not truly ours. It is wisdom, instead.  It is by being happy with all those very special things that we have been given— recognizing and cherishing our own blessings which are ours in the same way, that peace and joy and contentment come.  When the Arab nations read the Old Testament and see what it says, they have cause to know the truth.  They should know from the words of their own Father and from the True God to their Mother what to expect and what to do.

Leave Israel.  Just leave it, and concentrate instead on all the fantastic glories that have been given to the other sons of Abraham. They can and should put their time and energy and love into rebuilding their own cities and their own lands, to cherishing their own gardens and their own people.  This is the wise thing to do, because nobody can change what God has given or question what He has not given.

What is yours is yours, in the realm of Heaven and on Earth.

The Arab nations have more than enough power and energy and money to give every Muslim now living in Israel lands and fortunes far in excess of anything they now have, simply by moving home and living among Muslim neighbors and not having this strife anymore.  Why not do so?  Open up their inheritance, and they won’t want someone else’s. They will look back on their hovels in Israel and laugh with joy.

The same thing with the Muslim immigrants fleeing to Europe.  These people are in dismay.  They are facing prejudice and anger.  They are confused and unhappy.  They may not being bombed or attacked by drones anymore, but they are among foreigners and trying to adjust to a strange climate and hostile neighbors who feel that they are being imposed upon.

Arab nations?  Among the most wealthy of the wealthy on Earth?  Open your borders and your arms to your own people.  Welcome them home and put them to work rebuilding your lands and building the fresh water projects and farms that will make your nations blossom like Eden again.  Put aside this senseless warring and jealousy.  You cannot gainsay the God of your Fathers, but you can pay attention to your own blessings.

As she has grown older, my older Sister no longer feels so needy.  Things are not wanted just because they are lovely or useful or valuable.  They have to be hers.  They have to feel right.   They have to have that special sense of belonging to her.  Everything else she gives away and sends these blessings on their path, hoping that they find their way to those they do belong to.

Whatever she kept of mine long ago no longer matters. Times change, people change, needs change. What was mine twenty years ago and which should have gone to me to enjoy at that time, is no longer mine, either.  It belongs to someone else now.  And that’s all right.

As for the fights in the Middle East, they could be over in five minutes.  All that is required is that men look for and find their own blessings, and decide to themselves that it is better to look for the causes for peace than to search out the causes for war.

There will always be mistakes.  There will always be “sins”— which is just another name for mistakes.  There will always be “debts” — which is just another name for mistakes.  But we have the ability to correct our mistakes most of the time, and we always have the opportunity to learn from them and do better next time.  We don’t have to keep on butting our heads against Divine Laws, like children determined to conquer gravity.

In truth, if we were all letting go of all the things that don’t belong to us, but which we have mistakenly latched onto, and instead, paying attention and accepting and caring for those things and people that do belong to us, this would already be a happy and abundant world.

So how to bring peace to the Middle East?  Read the Old Testament.  Understand what it says.  Accept it.  And be happy.

Go on and celebrate all that God has given to all of us— life and love and enough and more to come.  Let the Arab nations wake up to their own blessings at last.  Let the people of Israel read their own choices— to be blessed or cursed, as they will, and let them have peace from the outside world.

My Sister and I are close now, closer than we have ever been.  The things that stood between us because they were mine and she wanted them no longer stand between us.  Likewise, the hurt she felt because she took them from me and had no pleasure in them, no longer matters, either.  She learned a very hard lesson and realized that life moves on, and sometimes when we take things that belong to others, you can’t just give them back.  That moment is gone.

What remains is her growing wisdom and thankfulness for all the blessings that are hers, including my steadfast love.

And that is what must ultimately remain festering in the hearts of the people of the Middle East, because somewhere someone realizes that at the bottom of this is love—and nothing is more troublesome than love denied.  The Jews and the Israelites and the Muslims secretly love each other, which is why they are jealous of each other and fight with each other, because they are all brothers from the same stem, the same family tree, still scrapping all these generations later over what belongs to whom and which blessings are theirs.

When the nations seek the causes for peace, there will be peace.  When they look at their neighbors and see themselves, there will be peace.  When they question their hearts and ask— is this mine?  They will know the truth.  And there will be peace and gladness, too, for when men embrace their blessings and take right action for the right reasons, God shines through.

FBI Feminist And Political Legacies

12/23/2017

Legacy – What is it?

It’s an inheritance… a heritage or a birthright.  We all leave one behind us when we depart this world.  Actually, we leave more than one legacy behind us.  There are personal legacies… what kind of friend have you been?  There are professional legacies… what kind of employee or employer have you been?  There are creative legacies… and parental legacies, marital legacies, etc.

This year as we approach Christmas and the Christian New Year, it is more important than usual to think of the legacies we leave behind.

Why is it more important than usual this year?  We are going through a generational change – and it is not pretty.

As power gets passed from my son’s and daughter’s generation (my generation passed the power baton to our children years ago), we are watching our failures as parents establish themselves as generational standards of behavior – or, in many cases, a lack of standard.  Equally, today’s generation (my kids and yours) can see what they did right as they watch their children assume political, social, familial, and professional responsibility for the world.  Unfortunately, it gives me the heebie-jeebies to think of Millennials running anything, let alone the world.

Legacies apply only to individuals, not groups.  If a group’s legacy is negative, it is because of the negativity of the individuals who rose to power within that group.  The group’s individual members enabled their success.  Legacies are the exclusive property of individuals.

For example, the legacy of those who have chosen to be Democrats for many years says, based on the achievements and objectives of that group, you support abortion through the 9th month.  I am glad that is your legacy and not mine.  You support socialism rather than capitalism.  You support the elimination of borders for our great nation… though any halfway intelligent person recognizes that borders define the nation and without them it cannot exist… and perhaps that is your objective.  You support sanctuary cities where those who enter our nation unlawfully are entitled to more consideration in our courts, our welfare offices, our schools and colleges, our health care system, than citizens who have worked their entire lives to support the building of those things.

That is your legacy if you are a Democrat… that and the open hatred you spew about the man who was elected by your fellow citizens to be President of the United States.  You see, the hatred doesn’t just hit Donald Trump.  It extends to those of us who voted for and still strongly support him.  You would rather destroy your nation than accept his victory over your crooked as a dog’s hind leg candidate, Hillary Clinton.

You accept and applaud the violence of mobs in the street when the violence is directed against President Trump and are so stupid that you do not realize when you destroy respect for the Office of the President you are destroying citizen respect for the nation… a nation on which you are dependent if you are to have a good, happy and stable future.  Such naïve behavior can only exist when people reject the idea that their legacy is the result of their own choices.

Will the Millennials who are inheriting your mess remember what you have done with gratitude and affection and for the happy future you are providing in this nation?  Is it one in which they can take pride?   Or will they curse you for the debt, the immorality, the lost history and indoctrination rather than education?  It will take them years to learn the truth – but they will learn (eventually and whether or not they want to learn).

If you are a Republican, you have two choices:  You are an establishment Republican who, much like Democrats, willingly support any moral compromise that strengthens your own position of power at the expense of the average person you are supposed to be serving.  If names like Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Corey Gardiner (R-CO), Paul Ryan (R-WI), John Thune (R-SD), Bill Kristol (Publisher, Weekly Standard), and all of the others who went to opulent Sea Island to discuss ways they can make President Donald Trump fail come to mind, you understand what I’m saying.

Or, you’re a conservative Republican who supports our Constitution, the Rule of Law, and our populist President.  In that case, your political legacy is the Constitution, truth, and the Rule of Law.

The establishment Republicans are actually worse than the amoral Democrats and their legacy will be one of a small group which arrogantly believes their few biased minds know better than American voters what is good for the people.  They are worse because they are traitors to the very thing that has given them the opportunity to gain access to the power they so easily abuse.  They are disgusting and will one day pay a horrific penalty for their behavior.

Again, your actions are not taken just against the President.  Rather they are taken against all of us who support him… millions of us to a handful of you.  What arrogance you have – and how badly you wear it.

“But you don’t know this or that about Trump.  Because of who we are and do we know things… and you must believe we are doing what we think best for the nation.”  They may say something similar.  And, to a degree, they may be right.  They may know things we don’t know which might change our minds if we knew them.

That doesn’t change the fact that we, the voters of America, are entitled to enjoy our right decisions and pay the penalty for the wrong ones we make so we can learn from them.  All we need to do either is the truth.  Because of your duplicity, even if you know things we don’t know, we will not have that opportunity because you won’t tell us the truth.  What does that say about you?

A small group (by comparison to the total population) does not have the right to determine the best path for the millions who will have to pay for whatever outcome may result from your carelessness.  That is your legacy… a personal legacy for each of you.  Your names will always be affiliated with Sea Island and what many of us consider treasonous behavior.

That same principle applies to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA).  J. Edgar Hoover left a legacy, didn’t he?  It involved using the nation’s primary law enforcement agency to gather dirt on anyone and everyone who could influence the direction of the American government and did not hesitate to threaten them with it.  Look how that’s turned out.  That’s his legacy.

How sad to see the FBI lose the trust of the American people.  President Trump may tell the graduating class of FBI agents that he loves law enforcement and he’s got their back, but most of the people will have a bit of disagreement with him about his Justice Department and how well it is being run.  They also disagree with law enforcement’s abuse of power.

If I were writing a novel, I would have a Senator named Jeff who is part of the Never-Trump group of Republicans and I would assign him the responsibility of being the first United States Senator to come out and publicly support this populist non-politician.  I would assign him the task of becoming personally close to the candidate (who no one expects to win… I’d choose him because if the candidate doesn’t win the nomination he is such a popular Senator he won’t lose his seat just because he supported a losing presidential candidate).

When the candidate unexpectedly wins the nomination, then even more unexpectedly wins the presidential election, Jeff would be perfectly positioned to be appointed Attorney General.  In its aftermath, all of the elitists and insiders know the biggest risk of this entire election cycle is for someone who wants to clean the swamp to succeed at becoming President of the United States.

Going right along with the plot, during his Senate Confirmation Hearings, Jeff would swear to remove himself from any investigations involving charges made by the lying Democrats – those whose candidate was so bad even they had a hard time stomaching her.  That will be a major part of the Democrat/Liberal legacy:  the 2016 election campaign and all of the lies.

By recusing himself from having anything to do with the investigation of possible presidential missteps involving Russia during the campaign, the Attorney General can avoid providing badly-needed support for his President.  He turns everything over to the Assistant Attorney General who supports the FBI’s senior management coup d’etat team.

My book plot would move forward by having the AAG appointed to handle all matters related to the Russia matter.  He would appoint a special prosecutor who is the best friend of the former FBI Director the President fired.  Surely this way they will be able to cover up all of the covert and indelicate, unlawful behavior of senior Bureau management members who are totally involved in trying to defeat the new President?  It is a devastating loss by the Democrat candidate whose power supports their corruption.  They are all sickened by her loss.  OMG!  They might even get caught red-handed.

Little by little, however, the new President finds ways to get the truth to the people.  The Attorney General looks ridiculous and incompetent, the Assistant Attorney General looks like a naïve fool who no American wants running the nation’s law enforcement, and all of the members of senior management look like traitors… including the special prosecutor.

What a book plot!  What a legacy these fictional characters are leaving their nation!  Are they fictional you ask?  Of course.  They must be.  No one could be so oblivious to reality as these characters are.

As I said, only individuals leave a legacy.  When their individual stupidity and arrogance enables the group’s objectives to depart from the group’s basic purpose for being, their individual legacy  suffers as does the group’s.  The rules are the same whether it’s the FBI, NOW, or the DNC.  They will forever be remembered for their treachery and lies.  Mostly, they will be remembered for disrespecting the American people and causing them to lose faith in their public servants’ ability to handle the power they were given.  Once lost, trust is never regained.

It will take time, Mr. President, for the people to forgive this grave violation of the public trust.  It will take time and tremendous dedication of those left to clean up the mess.

As for total support for law enforcement, as long as police departments and sheriff’s officers are pulling over people for no apparent violation but are removing from them their personal possessions (and never returning them without a court hearing which may or may not be either affordable or constitutional), I will not subscribe to your commitment to the thin blue line.   Again, the AG’s office should be taking action, but is not.

As the former editor of the National Peace Officer’s Magazine, as a former police officer’s wife (and a former Denver police department employee), I say those words with great sorrow but also with great respect for the rule of law so easily ignored by so many cities, counties and states.  It is unlawful and is a reflection of the sewer that made those who believe senior managers at the FBI should make political decisions on behalf of the American people.

Neither action is to be tolerated in a nation of laws and justice.  At the moment, we have neither.

I could go on and on about legacies left behind… the other one I will mention is feminism – which is anything but representative of most American females.  Their legacy will be to declare that we must believe women who lie about sexual encounters, because women don’t lie about such things… not even 40 years later.

That’s an interesting thought and it is being stated at the same time Los Angeles attorney Lisa Bloom admits that the women who have charged the President of inappropriate behavior towards them have been offered huge sums of money in return for their sudden memories.  It is rumored that Bloom’s law firm will take one-third of the amounts paid to her clients by – we don’t know who.  The amounts paid are, according to news stories, in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.  I believe Bloom has denied much of this… I would, too — wouldn’t you?  That’s one woman I won’t believe.

That is the feminist legacy.  They forgot the charges made against the Duke lacrosse team in 2006.  The North Carolina Attorney General said at the time:  “The Duke lacrosse case has shown that our society has lost sight of the most fundamental principle of our legal system:  the presumption of innocence.”  Some things don’t change and this is one of them.

We are to believe them just because they are women.  It tosses in the trash the rule of law declaring that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, but feminists don’t care.  That’s part of their legacy:  Ignorance of the law and naiveté [perhaps gullibility is a better word].

Perhaps if female morality was more apparent, you might convince me, but probably not.  You wear skirts up to your private parts (without telling men this is the new norm, not an invitation to your bed… though that’s what it looks like to me), you sleep with just about anyone from the time you get to high school, you don’t understand that “choice” occurs at the moment you decide to have sex rather than when you get pregnant and so believe the killing of a baby in your uterus is an acceptable form of birth control… even through the ninth month.

Your group will not be remembered for standing up for the rights of women.  It will be remembered for one of your leaders, a Hollywood elite, wanting to blow up the White House.  It will be remembered for murdering many of God’s most innocent beings… babies in your own belly.

What you represent – your legacy – is that of liberal Democrat women who have no moral compass.  That is your legacy… a group of individuals with no moral compass.

Those are legacies.

And while you are thinking about this, remember that you, too, dear reader will leave a legacy… one either of meaning and positive purpose or of… what?  Or, the groups you belong to will leave a legacy for you.

Be careful whom you support… it will be part of your legacy personally.  And now you know why I resigned from the Republican Party.

Special Treat for the Video Minded

12/22/2017

http://www.paulstramer.net/

By Anna Von Reitz

More goodies from the Lighthouse Law Club–but BEFORE you all watch this most enlightening video, write this additional piece of information on your wrist for ready reference and think about it very seriously:  ALMOST ALL THE COURTS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE “FEDERAL”.

They are either outright and obvious federal courts in the sense of US District Courts, or they are federated “state” and “county” courts—- federal courts being run “as” state and county courts.

How is this possible?  As I have said before and again, in the 1960’s the states and counties then-operating were seduced by the lure of federal kick-backs euphemistically known as “Federal Revenue Sharing” and “Federal Block Grants” into incorporating themselves as federal corporations.

So even though it is called “The State of Wyoming Superior Court” or “The Clark County Court” what you are really dealing with is a federal franchise operation, just like a Burger King or Dairy Queen franchise, presided over by a District of Columbia Municipality Judge or Magistrate.   The correct description of all these courts is: federal courts, federated state court, and federated county courts, because they are all federal corporation franchise operations and they are all operating under international law of the sea, not law of the land at all.

You have been purposefully mis-identified and mis-characterized in the public records as a federal citizen and federal citizens have no constitutional rights or guarantees.  In the same way, your courts have been usurped upon and foreign international law courts have been substituted for the land jurisdiction courts and public law you are owed.

Keeping that additional Fat Fact in mind, please find or make the time to watch this video from the Lighthouse Law Club:

Our Biblical Foundation In Politics Part 7

12/21/2017

https://newswithviews.com/our-biblical-foundation-in-politics-part-7/

Read More Articles by Roger Anghis

Last week we began to look at how the church was deeply involved in America’s education system.  Many have asked, why did the church become involved in the education system in the first place?  Simple, to ensure an education that was biblical based.  The Founders believed that God was the author of liberty and if the nation expected to remain free it had to be taught the foundation of that freedom, God.  The Bible could be likened to a comprehensive legal system, addressing every arena of life, from taxation to immigration, business operations to criminal justice, sexual behavior to the military. This should come as no surprise because 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that God’s Word is inspired or God breathed so that we may be “equipped for every good work.”

Because God’s Word provided such thorough guidance in so many areas (including which crimes required restitutions; marriage and family laws; abortion and the unborn; inheritance policies; agricultural practices; employment contracts; business loans and interest rates; etc.), citizens regularly went to ministers rather than just attorneys for guidance on laws. Early historian J.T. Headly explained: “The patriotic clergy of the revolution…were the soundest statesmen of the time.” Early American ministers not only expounded the laws but also were often regular participants in making them.

For example, the Revs. Joseph Montgomery, Hugh Williamson, James Manning, John Zubly, John Witherspoon, and many others were members of the Continental Congress. At the state level, Rev. Jacob Green helped draft New Jersey’s original state constitution and the Rev. Augustus Muhlenberg helped draft Pennsylvania’s constitution. The Revs. Samuel Stillman, Robert Treat Paine, and Gad Hitchcock helped draft Massachusetts’ 1780 constitution, that is still in use today. [1]

Our education system, because of the involvement of the church, was the best in the world but when government began to become involved things began to change and not for the better, as usual when government gets involved.  Where we used to have extensive knowledge of our government and how it works we have come to a point a point where the general public has very little if any knowledge.  When I was in school in the 1950’s and 60’s they still taught our Constitution and how our government worked.  Just a few years ago a group of adults who had spent their entire life in America were given some of the simplest questions off the test for immigrants to become citizens and 71% of these adults failed the easiest part of the immigration test.  Worse yet they gave this same test to elected officials and 78% of the elected officials failed the test.  In today’s bread and circuses world, it doesn’t surprise me one bit that Americans overwhelmingly fail a quiz on civics. What is slightly surprising is that our elected officials do even worse:

Are most people, including college graduates, civically illiterate? Do elected officials know even less than most citizens about civic topics such as history, government, and economics? The answer is yes on both counts according to a new study by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI). More than 2,500 randomly selected Americans took ISI’s basic 33 question test on civic literacy and more than 1,700 people failed, with the average score 49 percent, or an “F.” Elected officials scored even lower than the general public with an average score of 44 percent and only 0.8 percent (or 21) of all surveyed earned an “A.” Even more startling is the fact that over twice as many people know Paula Abdul was a judge on American Idol than know that the phrase “government of the people, by the people, for the people” comes from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. [2]

I have been advocating for the last ten years for the education system be taken out of the hands of the federal government and teachers unions and put it back in the hands of the people and the States.  The federal government states that it doesn’t set policies for courses it only devises the tests for graduation, SAT and others.  The problem with that is by setting the tests they are setting the courses as the schools must teach what is on the test. They think we’re all dumocrats and can’t figure out their end-run around the Constitution.

Our Founders used a very simple process for electing people that would be placed in authority and we have swayed from that guideline to the point where we have fools like Shelia Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Diane Finstein and Hank Johnson who was afraid that if we expanded our military base on Guam that it would become to heavy on one side, tip over and capsize the island not just the military base.  In a discussion regarding a planned military buildup on the Pacific island, Johnson expressed some concerns about the plans to Adm. Robert Willard, head of the U.S. Pacific fleet.

“My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize,” Johnson said. Willard paused and replied, “We don’t anticipate that.” [3] I’m sorry but how do people this ignorant get elected? Shelia Jackson Lee thinks our astronauts placed a flag on Mars, thinks our Constitution is 400 years old and refers to herself as a freed slave.  Maxine Waters is afraid that if North Korea nukes us that President Trump will start a war.  People, this is stupid on steroids!  I’m afraid to say that these people are grossly ignorant but the people that vote them into office are no better.  The Founders used a principle from the book of Exodus to serve as a means of qualifying a person that was to be placed in a position of authority: Exodus 18:21  Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens: [4]

The necessity of people in authority to men that fear God and men of truth is imperative for a nation to remain strong.  The afore mentioned people are all college graduates, which shows the pathetic condition of our colleges, yet they lack even common sense.  Education in biblical principles and thought produce people like those who wrote our Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of independence, our States Constitutions and developed our judicial system, education system which crated the greatest nation the world has ever or will ever see in the shortest time ever in history.

If we do not return to this manner of picking our leaders we will continue the slide into decadence and will only be remembered as a once great nation whose folly brought her to nothingness.

Why a Woman?

12/19/2017

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/12/why-woman.html


By Anna Von Reitz

The more chauvinistic elements of the Jewish faith and the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Faiths  have asked me– why would God choose a woman to act as Fiduciary for Our Redeemer?

I answer that He has always chosen women to be the keepers of His House.  Uh-duh….

The wisest among you all have always known that this particular position would be held by a woman and most definitely not a man.

There is a reason that all the top financial decisions among the Israelis are always made by a group of elderly women.

And what am I?

An elderly woman.

Hello?  What is so strange or even questionable about this?

It is the Divine Feminine that is the caretaker of the House and the Body.  It is the Divine Masculine that is the caretaker of the forest and the field.  Thus He ordained it from the beginning and so it is to this day.

Men think in terms of machines. Women think in terms of life.

The correct balance is achieved when the needs and perspectives of both are honored.

How do you make sure that both are honored?  Put the woman in charge of the purse strings.

Her love of her husband will cause her to honor him and his needs, and her love of life will lead her to honor life, so that all things are fulfilled and sustained in balance.

Men, generally speaking, do not have the rounded edges that come from many years of cleaning up baby poop and dog vomit, of trudging to the market, of buying and preparing food, of housework and nursing the sick and caring for the dying and tending the garden.

In a sense, the world that most men live in is not real.  In the ultimate sense, then, they are disconnected and ill-prepared  to make choices about the true and actual value of investments.

Our Father knows this. So do we, if we stop for five seconds and think about it.

The Israelis are not the only ones to know and honor this truth. Traditional Native cultures around the world follow the same pattern. The Clan Mothers make the financial and investment decisions.

Over the course of the past year I have had many male (and some female) bankers approach me and try to bamboozle me into various kinds of usury and investment that serves to benefit them and their schemes, and only secondarily produces any good result for the world at large.

They are always amazed when I see through them and gently let them know that I am not deceived.

They think that their world of high finance is so complicated and advanced — how could a little old lady see through it all?

It’s because she sees with the eyes of God, not men.

Indeed, a spider’s web is complex, but it is still comprehensible. It is still just a spider’s web.  And a childrens’ game, even a childrens’ game that is unfamiliar to you, is still just a childrens’ game. If you observe it being played you can deduce what the goals and rules are, and then you can tell when a child is cheating, also.

No big mysteries.

Think of your own Mother or Grandmother when you were little and you tried to get into the cookie jar or steal away with your brother’s favorite toy truck.   Did she always know?

Same thing. World finance is as simple as that. Anyone can understand it.

This is not a job I wanted or which I chose for myself. It is the job I have been given and appointed to perform. If anyone wants to argue, they can argue with Him.

Nobody could be more amazed than I am myself, but it is what it is.

I turned to Our Father in gratitude one day and said, “You have so greatly blessed me. There must have been a reason? There must be something You want me to do….so, whatever it is, here I am….”

And here I am.

That is the long and short of it. I was willing to go and do whatever He wanted me to do, and He sent me.  Simple as that.

Now it is up to the rest of the world to come to terms with the work to be done, the restoration and reinvestments to be made, and the mechanics of it all.

Rest assured that I am divinely guided and not the Author of what I do in this regard.  Rest assured that just as He sent me, He has sent others to help and to make sure that nothing goes astray.

And be assured that despite whatever evil men may say or do, His Will for the Earth and for Mankind, not theirs, will be fulfilled.

World Net Daily CAFR Revisited

12/18/2017

http://cafr1.com/WND.html

by Walter Burien
12/19/11

World Net Daily wrote four articles on the CAFR back in 1999 / 2000

One of the four articles was by Joseph Farah the editor of WND.

The first article by Sarah Foster notes that the then current national debt of 5.6 trillion dollars federal and all local debt could be paid off several times over from the collective investment funds held.

POST NOTE 12/17/17: It appears WND deactivated the search feature on their site. Any phrase entered will say “Not Found” (I use a FireFox browser)

But then thanks to a snapshot by archive.org, three of the four WND articles can be viewed. From 06/14/1999 by Sarah Foster  https://web.archive.org/web/20160119065925/http://www.wnd.com/1999/06/3724/

WND Editor – Joe Farah – “Government’s money-hoarding racket”  – 06/15/1999   – https://web.archive.org/web/20140222032154/http://www.wnd.com:80/1999/06/1389/

WND – Geoff Metcalf – “THE GOVERNMENT’S SECRET TRILLIONS.” – 08/06/2000 – https://web.archive.org/web/20170831182647/http://www.wnd.com/2000/08/6265/

After these four articles were published by WND, WND was confronted with a financial squeeze, sold their operation to one of the syndicate media groups, moved their editorial headquarters to the Washington DC area, never to publish another article with mention of the CAFR or collective investments held by government as shown in the CAFR again.

When the CAFR or Government’s collective wealth held is mentioned corrective action is taken by the Government syndicate to maintain: “The Silence is Golden Rule“. This applies in politics; any Media Outlet having reach; or as would apply to organized education.

The intentional vacuum and maintained void is in place DUE TO THE MONEY INVOLVED, nothing more and nothing less.

Many activists have breached the void and the CAFR with the wealth shown in collective totals is reaching the public’s cognitive thinking one person or one group at a time.

A very important point to realize here is the effect of psychological conditioning the intentional void implants in the human psyche;

When someone learns something of this magnitude, and they do not see it discussed openly elsewhere through the syndicate’s outlets they have a natural reaction to withdraw. Most people like to follow the pack and if the pack is silent, the individual is very hesitant to speak and face skepticism as a result of the well maintained void in place to deter their or any cognitive thinking.

Well, as of 2011 a much larger majority have caught the thought of government’s collective ownership “of it all”.

In retaliation the syndicate is waging psychological warfare to embed the opposite impression: Broke; short of funds; underfunded; etc. The population is being barraged daily with this type of soundbite conditioning.

CAFR1 says to counter: Do a Google on: Government Wealth

That search when done in December 2011 will yield 374,000,000 hits with the CAFR1 2000 video #1 and CAFR1 website #1. POST NOTE 12/17/17: As of December 2017, with the void maintained, and likely with alittle intervention on Google’s part, the CAFR1 hits are now no longer #1 but moved down the Google hit list significantly.

The silence from the syndicated media and political parties is deafening still, but then that “qualifies” the significances of the effort applied by them to maintain the silence.

The world is not flat, it is round and more and more people are learning the truth and at the same time they are learning the reality of the massive collectively owned wealth involved.

2012 it appears will be the launch of the TRF in two counties starting the path to eliminate all taxation from the utilization of that collective wealth held establishing the population as the “first line beneficiary” and then, as the walls come down: Silence no more.. The Win-Win for one and all will be underway. POST NOTE 12/17/17 – I am working on it but MUCH revenue is needed to get the job finished. The TRFA National headquarters is being developed on a 24 acre lot in Gallup, NM . This article writen in December of 2011 is just as relevant, or even more so going into 2018. Getting it done is not the opportunity of a lifetime, but the opportunity of “all lifetimes” to make this happen! And again, “I am working on it”.

Happy Holidays!

The Crux of Non Representation

12/16/2017

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/12/the-crux-of-non-representation.html

By Anna Von Reitz

Following the so-called Civil War — never forget that it wasn’t actually a war because it was never declared by our Congress and never ended by peace treaty — place holder “States” were established in the Territorial Government system.

These “States” were predicated on the theory that everyone would now be considered “Dual Citizens” owing obligations to both the actual state of the union and the federal government.  No such authorization or agreement on the part of the American states and people exists.  No act by our Continental Congress allows it. This was simply presumed as an administrative action on the part of the Territorial Government as a part of “reconstruction” and it was excused as an “emergency measure”—for which there is no provision in our law, either.

The people then-serving in the State Legislatures of the late 1860’s and onward, were  presumed to adopt the new Dual Citizenship and to wear two hats — when wearing one hat, they took on the character and duty of American state nationals and acted “for” the “absent” actual land jurisdiction state government and created “Session Laws”, and when wearing the other hat, they operated as “federal state” citizens and passed “State Statutes” governing the “State of State” organizations.

But no man can serve two masters….. as time passed, the people elected to serve in these offices lost track of the situation.  Occasions when Session Laws were passed were few and far between, because all the day to day operations and issues were being handled by the “State of State”— like the “State of Washington” organizations which are all federal corporation franchises having nothing much to do with our actual government at all.

One of the peculiarities of this situation is that members of the Bar Associations were allowed to hold office in these placeholder State Legislatures, in direct opposition to the actual Constitutional Amendment that prohibits people who hold foreign titles of nobility like “Esquire” from holding any office in our government.

The same thing has occurred in the “United States Congress”.

There are exceptions where they did it right and excluded Bar Association members from voting on Session Laws directly impacting the land jurisdiction and the living people, but over time things got sloppy and confused, and fewer and fewer members of both the Congress and the “State” legislatures were able to act in unincorporated sovereign capacity because more Bar Members ran for office and the non-Bar members of both Congress and the “State” Legislatures were (and are) placed in the minority as a result.

I haven’t looked at the statistics for some time, but at one time in the 1990’s –if memory serves me– only seven out of a hundred US Senators were non-Bar.

This leads to a situation where we, the actual states and people, are grossly under-represented both in Congress and in “State Legislatures”—-and leads to other unanticipated and unwanted evils, too.

For example, when it comes to real brass-tacks issues impacting the living people and the actual land and soil of our country, power is concentrated in the hands of a very, very few members of Congress who are not Bar Association Members.  And there is no guarantee that these individuals will be fair-minded with respect to the entire country’s needs and no guarantee that they will have the correct information, brain power, and skill set needed to make good decisions for the country as a whole.

We have a hundred United States Senators, two from each state, for a reason.  What happens when you suddenly only have seven Senators able to vote on an issue that impacts everyone in the country?

Over ninety percent of the people are not being represented at all—and this is happening in a country that is supposed to be the flag-ship of representative government worldwide.

The same exact thing happens in the “State” Legislatures throughout the country.

Either they prohibit the Bar Members from voting on these all-important issues

as required by the actual Constitution and thereby grossly under-represent and marginalize the constituents the Bar Members are supposed to be representing, or they allow the Bar Members to vote and taint the results, because Bar Members are prohibited from holding office in the actual land jurisdiction government.

Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

Clearly, our system is broken and sputtering and it has been for a long, long time.

The further consequence of this ongoing situation which is an unresolved hold-over from the Reconstruction Era, is that the Bar Members take their revenge by marginalizing and isolating the few non-Bar members serving in the Congress and the “State” Legislatures.

Look how they treated Ron Paul?  Even he didn’t appear to know why he was the Ugly Step-Child, but it is easy enough to see why.  He wasn’t a Bar Member.  He was one of the special few who would hold the disproportionate share of power if and when any truly important action was required, but in the same token, he was by definition cut out of the Bar Association Good Ole Boys Club.

I am reminded of a friend from my college days.  “Bob” was drop-dead gorgeous.  As a result, none of the girls would even speak to him, except for me— because then as now, I didn’t give a fig for appearances good or bad.  He was lonely and perplexed.  Why didn’t anyone like him?  Well, as I explained, the girls were afraid to speak to him and the boys were jealous and hated his guts.

That’s the situation that a non-Bar member of Congress faces.  The other non-Bar members are a mixed bag of misfits jealous of their peculiar power once they discover that they have it, and the Bar Members hate all of them by definition.  To a greater or lesser extent, the same things go on in the “State” Legislatures across the country.

All of this and more is the result of unfinished business left over from the Civil War.  Even our friends are left shaking their heads. How could such a thing be?  How stupid and lazy are the American people?  To leave their sovereign government compromised and in limbo for six generations?

Yet, this is what has gone on here.

Ask the Congressional Research Service.  Most of the Reconstruction Acts have never been repealed, and our country has been left functioning on two cylinders ever since.

So if the interests of the people and the actual land jurisdiction states of the union are 90% or more unrepresented in Congress and to a greater or lesser extent also disenfranchised from being represented in the “State” Legislatures, who or what is being represented?

Public employees are being represented, so well represented that they now own and control the Fortune 500 Companies via their pension plan managers.  Banks and insurance companies and other large corporations are being represented and given Big Slices of the national pie.  And of course, the Bar Association Members who dominate everything day to day are licking up all the juice and leftovers.

Joe Average gets the bill.  Why?  Because he isn’t being represented by this “representative” government.

The few people who aren’t Bar Members occupying offices in the “State” Legislatures and Congress are mostly clueless, inept, and haven’t studied history or law.  They are like sheep guarded by dogs (the military) in a pen full of sheep-eating snakes.

They may survive like Ron Paul, but also like Ron Paul, they won’t get anything done. They won’t figure out how to exercise their unique powers.  They won’t be able to bring our country back from the edge of oblivion —- until and unless the rest of us wake up.

Rule One: never vote a Bar Member into any office.  Never.  Not even Dog Catcher.

Rule Two: learn to identify, support, and make use of the few representatives you have.

Rule Three: push the military to do its actual job and support the actual Constitution owed to this country and its people.

Rule Four: educate yourselves and others so that you can identify the problems and take effective action to restore your lawful government at every level.

The problem with this country is that we, the actual states and people, are being grossly under-represented in the “State” Legislatures and in the Congress, for the reasons just described.  The further problem is that public employees and corporate interests, especially corporate banking and insurance interests, are being grossly over-represented.

The best and quickest way out of this conundrum is to organize your local jural assemblies at the county level (see Michigan General Jural Assembly for help) and begin the process of educating your family, friends, and neighbors.

America has been running on two cylinders for far too long.  It’s time to reconstruct the “Reconstruction”.

Lots Of Investigations But No Prosecutions Or Incarcerations

12/15/2017

https://newswithviews.com/lots-of-investigations-but-no-prosecutions-or-incarcerations/

Read More Articles by Ron Ewart

Congressional and special counsel investigations of government officials are a categorical joke and an insult to the American people.  In four separate investigations of then President Bill Clinton, including Ken Starr’s special counsel investigation into the Clinton Whitewater land deal and the firing of the employees in the travel office, the government spent almost $80,000,000.  What did the American people get for $80,000,000?  The net result of those investigations was an indictment of Bill Clinton for lying under oath over a sex act in the oval office.   And people think Donald Trump is depraved.

The U. S. House of Representatives drafted Articles of Impeachment against Clinton.  That resulted in Clinton being tried in the Senate.  But because the Democrats controlled the Senate at the time, Bill Clinton skated impeachment and removal from office.  Yes, Bill lost his law license and had to pay $850,000 to Paula Jones and her lawyers to shut them up.   Nevertheless, questions still remain about the Whitewater land deal, the travel office firing, Hillary’s fabulous investment in cattle futures and the dead bodies that seem to appear on the path of Bill and Hillary’s climb to political office, including the presidency.  So much for special counsels.

Then there are the great and wonderful Congressional investigations into government wrongdoing.  Let’s see!  The Congress investigated the Fast and Furious gun running deal that ended in the death of border patrol agent Brian Terry in 2010 by Mexican cartel thugs using a gun supplied by the U.S. government.  Congress came up empty handed, (again) even after filing a Contempt of Congress citation against U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

In collusion between President Obama and AG Holder, Obama claimed presidential privilege and information naming the perpetrators at ATF who supplied the guns was shielded.  What did we learn?  Nothing!  Who went to jail?  No one!

Congress held hearings on the IRS targeting conservative groups for “special” treatment just before the 2012 presidential election.  Lois Lerner, at the head of the targeting scam, claimed her 5th Amendment rights and went deaf and dumb.  IRS Commissioner John Koskinen and his predecessors provided false testimony to Congress and conveniently lost Lois Lerner’s e-mails that were requested by Congress.  Commissioner Koskinen held his post as IRS Commissioner all the way up to October of 2017 because Trump somehow overlooked his firing.  He should have gone to jail.  President Obama, in an interview with Bill O’Reilly stated that there was “not even a smidgeon of corruption” at the IRS.”  He lied and he knew he was lying.  Now Lois Lerner wants her testimony sealed in the civil case against the IRS so she won’t be subjected to threats from angry taxpayers.

In just another worthless Congressional investigation, no one was indicted.  No one was prosecuted in a court of law.  No one was found guilty and went to jail.  Who lost?  The taxpayers.  The taxpayers had to pay out millions of dollars in settlements to the over 300 conservative organizations that suffered needlessly at the hands of the IRS targeting for a liberal political agenda.  Another very powerful federal agency was politicized and sent the rule of law and the constitution into exile.

On September 11, 2012 four brave men died needlessly in a terror attack on the Consulate in Benghazi, including our U. S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.  Obama and his political cronies said the attack was caused by a negative Islamic video and promptly threw the video maker in jail.  The Ambassador had made hundreds of requests to the State Department (Secretary of State Hillary Clinton) for more security but the requests were denied or ignored.  It is said that Africa-Command stood down during the attack and didn’t launch a military rescue.  Who gave the stand-down order?  We don’t know.  But someone ordered an un-armed drone to survey the situation while the men were dying.  Well at least we have pictures of the attack.

The whole terrible tragedy cried out for a Congressional investigation.  Congress cried foul and held hearings in multiple committees to try to get to the bottom of it and pin the blame on someone.  There had to be a responsible person or persons that should have or could have prevented the attack.  In her testimony before one of the committees, in usual Hillary cover-up fashion, yelled out loud, “what difference does it make.”  In Hillary’s tortured mind, it must be a right-wing conspiracy.  She lied to the families of the men when they were flown home in caskets from Libya and told the families the attack was caused by the stupid video.

So what did we learn after all the time and money spent in Congressional committee hearings and witness testimony on the Benghazi attack?  Nothing!  Who was responsible?  Who was tried and went to jail?  Or who was demoted?  No one!

Once again, Americans find themselves in another corruption scandal by the female half of the Clinton racketeering enterprise that ran for president a second time and lost.  (Boy that must have really stung for someone who is used to winning by any means, criminal or otherwise, especially losing to that loose-mouthed Trump.)

When Secretary of State, this very astute political animal ran a private server in her home to transact State Department business with hundreds, if not thousands, of classified material running through her un-secured server.  Her state department cronies were also receiving classified material that ran through Hillary’s server.  Why did she do this?  To shield any of her e-mails from FOIA requests, or to be able to delete e-mails that might be incriminating, which she did.  Some of that classified material ended up on sex pervert Anthony Weiner’s laptop, sent there by Hillary confidant, Huma Abadein, Weiner’s wife.  Over 30,000 Hillary e-mails suddenly disappeared and laptops and Iphones destroyed.  Hillary lied under oath before the U. S. Congress but was never charged.  She probably lied to the FBI but was never charged.

And then there is the “pay for play” Uranium One deal where somehow $145,000,000 ended up in the Clinton Foundation right after Russia took control of Uranium One and 20% of the entire American raw uranium resources and Bill Clinton raked in a cool $500,000 for a speech in Russia.  Coincidence?  You’ve got to be kidding!  Criminal?  You bet!

So the FBI started an investigation into Hillary’s un-secured server.  What happened?  Will tell you what happened, it was a blatant cover-up by corrupt FBI agents.  On top of that, FBI director Comey, in violation of Department of Justice protocol and without legal authority, exonerated Hillary Clinton in a speech on July 5, 2016, three months before the November 2016 election, bypassing the Department of Justice and Attorney General Loretta Lynch.  This happened but a few weeks after former President Bill Clinton met with AG Loretta Lynch on the Phoenix Airport tarmac, which the FBI tried to cover up.  The result!  Hillary skates!  Bill Clinton skates ….. again!  Comey skates!  Loretta Lynch skates!  Obama skates and the two corrupt FBI agents skate, that is up until just recently where both were demoted and stripped of rank when it was learned they had poisoned the Hillary investigation.

So where is the big Congressional or FBI investigations into the Clinton’s Uranium One and the “pay for play” Clinton Foundation deals.  Are they being investigated?  We don’t know!  Will it be a fair and partial investigation?  After seeing what we have seen in the last week or so, we have grave doubts.

A few days ago newly appointed FBI Director Christopher Wray gave testimony before a Congressional Committee on the two FBI agents that were caught red handed trying to influence the Hillary Clinton investigation, in Hillary’s favor of course.  Director Wray copped out and said the issue was being “investigated” by the “independent” FBI Inspector General and he couldn’t comment.  Now if you think that Inspector Generals are “independent”, fair and impartial, let us take you back to the IRS Inspector General who did essentially nothing regarding the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups.  Lerner skated!  IRS Commissioner Koskinen skated!  Obama and God knows who else skated!

Then there is the Mueller so-called “independent” special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and the possibility of now President Donald Trump or his campaign advisors being implicated in collusion with the Russians.  In five months, Mueller has spent almost $7,000,000 and has indicted a couple of campaign advisors for crimes that had nothing to do with the 2016 election, or Russian interference or collusion.  Mueller is a close friend of former FBI Director James Comey.  His attorney staff is made up of Obama groupies who have donated thousands to Obama and other Democrat candidates.  “Independent, fair and impartial?”  It defies credulity!

Sure, those who have been paying attention know all that we have written here, but what are they going to do about it?  Nothing, just like the U. S. Congress investigations do nothing!  And just like special counsels spend millions of your tax dollars on witch-hunts that only uncover low-level perpetrators for low-level crimes.  The “big fish” always get away, or are let go to swim again and commit more political crimes, ala the Clintons.

So what’s the point of all this?  It’s the establishment and deep state conducting business as usual in a corrupt government that cannot be reined in because the only thing that can rein government in is “We The People.”  Sadly, the people are disengaged, apathetic, disinterested, asleep and for the most part, don’t care.

As an example, in last week’s article (“If You Ain’t Mad Yet, You’d Better Get Mad“) we encouraged our readers to boycott San Francisco over their sanctuary city policy, the Kate Steinle murder and the acquittal verdict of the killer.  We set up a web page with a sample letter and the San Francisco contact information including phone, fax numbers and e-mail addresses.  We said that if our effort didn’t go viral, it would be a token effort and token efforts always fail.  Not only did our suggestion to contact the San Francisco mayor and Board of Supervisors not go viral, only one person relayed to us that they had sent our sample letter.  As further evidence of the lack of interest, only a few people, out of all of the people that read our articles, were curious enough to at least look at our sample letter on the website page.  Most just brushed it off.

So here is the question.  If those that care about America’s future are privy to all of the injustices going on around them and won’t lift a finger to right any of the injustices, they are, forever, stuck with those injustices.  Acquiescence is approval!  That goes for the deep state, the establishment, corrupt politicians and bureaucrats, government cover-ups, out-of-control illegal immigration, our broken health care system, environmental overreach, regulation and propaganda, high taxes and high debt, the hopelessly corrupt Veteran’s Administration, socialist brainwashing of our next generation, college academic lunacy, failing infrastructure and the attempt to annihilate American sovereignty to be replaced by one-world-order.

We predict this is what will eventually happen.  The large preponderance of the American population will go on about their business of not caring what government does and acquiesce to the injustices, the growing waste, fraud, abuse and corruption, further loss of freedoms and exploding government spending.  All the do-nothing Congressional investigations and special counsels to hold government accountable will not fix any of the real problems while the American people look the other way.

But there will be a significant segment of the population that will one day finally get fed up with acquiescence to the injustices and revolt ….. violently.  This segment is heavily armed.  Thus, will the third American Revolution be born.  What will trigger that revolution is anyone’s guess, but the trigger could be something small and innocuous, like the fluttering of a butterfly’s wings on a sunny April 15th morning, tax day USA.

By Anna Von Reitz

For Those Incapable of Connecting the Dots …..
We are being “occupied” by our own Army.

The Army we pay for. The Army that we allow our sons and daughters to serve in. The Army that is strictly charged with preserving our freedoms, protecting our money, and supervising the activities of the Bar Association on our shores.

That Army.

How, you might ask, is this possible? It’s possible because the so-called “American Civil War” wasn’t a war. It was and is an illegal commercial mercenary conflict on our shores. It was never actually declared by any Congress. It was never officially ended by any Peace Treaty.

In 1863, during the so-called war, Lincoln bankrupted the original United States (Trading Company) and placed the responsibility for preserving the Union and fulfilling the contractual mandates of the actual Constitution on the Grand Army of the Republic — and the Union Generals.

With respect to the Territorial United States, they have carried on in that role ever since, and grossly expanded upon it. The rules that Lincoln gave them, The Lieber Code, has morphed into The Hague Conventions. The Grand Army of the Republic, also known as the Union Army, has morphed in the US ARMY, the United States Army, and many other permutations. But nothing ever got resolved.

President Andrew Johnson who was Lincoln’s Successor Vice-President declared “peace on the land” in three very public declarations, establishing a public contract. As a result, the people owed the land jurisdiction were recognized as peaceful non-combatants and innocent Third Parties who are all owed The Law of Peace.

Instead of honoring that, successive generations of generals and members of Congress have colluded together to define all of us as “Enemy combatants” and they have directed the falsification of the public records to that end.

Beginning with alteration of Title 37 of the old Federal Code to conscript doctors and dentists and other “uniformed officers” into the Army, and then with the original “Maternity Act” and Sheppard Townsend Act they conspired to register American babies as they were born.

Registration gives up our ownership interest in our own names and estates to the “State of ____________” as our “presumed beneficiary”. So the “State of Wisconsin” organization, for example, would be the presumed beneficiary of my name and estate and would receive the “beneficial title” to the trust ACCOUNT established in my NAME, while the “STATE OF WISCONSIN” organization would receive the “legal title” and be enabled to administer my ESTATE for the benefit of the “State of Wisconsin”.

And as for me, I would get nothing out of the deal whatsoever, except for an “indemnity receipt” from whichever federal corporation seized title to my name and estate, guaranteeing as my “presumed usufruct” that no harm would come to me or my estate as a result of their use of my assets.

This vicious swindle was in effect a species of genocide on paper, unlawfully converting the public records and political status of American state nationals to that of “federal citizens” merely “residing” here temporarily while performing our “presumed” duty to provide “essential government services”.

It also allowed them to subject us to their corporate tribunals being run in lieu of the American Common Law courts we are owed, under the false presumption that we were all federal employees or dependents or political asylum seekers.

They’ve gotten away with this crap for so long that they actually believe their own lies. And all these presumptions which were made about you without your knowledge or consent have not been rebutted because you have been kept in the dark and never told of their existence.

For six generations.

How do you rebut a lie if you don’t know it exists?

But now the game is up, and the Army is looking at the Navy and the Navy is looking at the Army and the Marines are looking at every other branch of service and the Air Force is going, “OMG!” and the plain fact of the matter is that both the Congress and the Armed Forces have been acting in treason against us, their actual employers, and against our Constitution.

These two groups of employees have been attacking us under color of law, under deliberately contrived and known false pretenses, and all behind our backs.

The sheer size and scope of the crime is breath-taking. The complexity and duration of the fraud beyond any simple imagining. And the cost to the American states and people is in the quadrillions of dollars defined as ounces of silver.

It should come as no surprise, then, that our entire “National Credit” — the flip-side of their “National Debt” — has been embezzled from the coffers of the Department of Defense.

How is all this fraud possible? In a debt-credit system, debts are supposed to immediately cancel out via the receipt of equal credit, but the answer is— it’s because they never credited us.

To put it bluntly, the “occupying Army” was double-dipping the whole time, siphoning off the credit owed to us and leaving the debts unpaid, so that they could come in and pretend that they were bankrupt because of our bad behavior and insolvency, and give themselves an excuse to sell off our assets to satisfy their debts as they have done already twice before in 1907 and 1933.

They were using their own cleverly disguised territorial court tribunals to collect on all these supposed debts— which we never owed. Ever.

Why do I say that? Because the debts were racked up by the Municipal United States — which was serving itself, not us—and the debts were being collected by the Territorial United States — which was serving itself, not us.

Remember? We were cut totally out of the picture at birth.

None of this is our debt and none of this criminality is our doing. It’s entirely a federal matter that has nothing to do with us.

Please bear in mind that we are not alone, because the same infectious disease has eaten away at the foundations of lawful government in virtually every country on Earth. The same venal “system” of “federal districts” overlaying the land jurisdiction of every country has imposed the same form of de facto slavery on people from Japan to Belize, from Queensland to Point Barrow, from Manchuria to Moscow and from Moscow to Denmark.

This crime syndicate which has used our country as its home base for 150 years has now moved on to China, where it proposes to set up shop and use its ill-gotten gains to dominate the rest of the world forever.

And what do you all say to that?

Is it time to kick some Generals where it hurts?

Force some actual useless eaters to perform their Oaths and duties?

Tell the Lord Mayor of London exactly where to shove it and how far?

Escort the Popes out of Vatican City to hear the roar?

Bury Buckingham Palace under the enormous pile of manure that they have bequeathed as their legacy to the rest of the world?

How about giving all these bankers new jobs cleaning public toilets?

They can share rooms with members of Congress and the Joint Chiefs of Staff and attend my lectures every morning.

The Regulation Freedom Amendment And Daniel Webster

12/13/2017

“The politician that undertakes to improve a Constitution with as little thought as a farmer sets about mending his plow, is no master of his trade. If that Constitution be a systematic one, if it be a free one, its parts are so necessarily connected that an alteration in one will work an alteration in all; and this cobbler, however pure and honest his intentions, will, in the end, find that what came to his hands a fair and lovely fabric goes from them a miserable piece of patchwork.” Daniel Webster, 4th of July Oration, 1802.

We live in a time of constitutional illiteracy.  A recent survey found that only 26% of Americans can name the three branches of the federal government. Yet every Tom, Dick and Harry thinks he knows all about how to amend a document he never bothered to read.  Our lawyers were indoctrinated in law school with the Supreme Court’s perversions of our Constitution, and know nothing of our actual Constitution. We should read and learn the Constitution we have before we tinker with it or jump on the bandwagon of tinkerers.  Otherwise, we destroy the “fair and lovely fabric” we were given.

Summary

Under our Constitution, Congress makes the laws, and the President enforces them. The powers of “making” and “enforcing” are separated so that the President and Congress may act as a “check” on each other.

But 100 years ago, Congress starting passing laws they had no constitutional authority to make, and delegated the details to be written in by agencies within the Executive Branch. This process continued and resulted in the Code of Federal Regulations which contains the huge body of regulations made by agencies within the Executive Branch. And thus we got the unconstitutional administrative law state under which every aspect of our lives is being increasingly regulated and controlled. [1]1

And now appear those who, under the promise of limiting the regulatory administrative law state, propose an Amendment to our Constitution which would legalize it!

  1. Only the Legislative Branch has Constitutional Authority to make Laws

Article I of our Constitution created the Legislative Branch of the federal government.  Section 1 thereunder says:

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

That means what it says.  Only Congress may make laws [and laws are restricted to the powers granted in the Constitution]; and laws may be made only by elected Senators and Representatives in Congress.

  1. The Executive Branch Enforces the Laws Congress makes

Article II of our Constitution created the Executive Branch. A primary function of that branch is to enforce laws passed by the Legislative Branch.  Since the President’s Oath is to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution, he is obligated to refuse to enforce any Act of Congress which is unconstitutional.

  1. Rulemaking by Agencies in the Executive Branch

But during the early 1900s, Congress began to make laws outside the scope of the handful of powers granted to the federal government, and delegated the details to be written by unelected bureaucrats in the Executive Branch.

This is now routine practice: Congress passes an overall statutory framework, and bureaucrats in the Executive Agencies write the rules to flesh it out. The Agencies themselves are often unconstitutional as outside the scope of powers granted in the Constitution. [2]

To illustrate:  Congress passed – without reading – the over 2,000-page Obamacare act. Then it went to the Department of Health & Human Services (an unconstitutional federal agency) to have tens of thousands of additional pages of regulations added to fill out the framework.

This unconstitutional practice resulted in the infamous Code of Federal Regulations. The Code is so huge it’s difficult to impossible to keep up with the rules and revisions which pretend to regulate one’s trade, business, or profession.

The administrative law state and agency rules are unconstitutional!  They violate Art. I, § 1, US Constitution, and are outside the scope of powers granted to the federal government.

So, what’s the solution?

  1. The “Regulation Freedom” Amendment

Roman Buhler of the “The Madison Coalition” says we should support the “Regulation Freedom” Amendment to the US Constitution:

“Whenever one quarter of the Members of the U.S. House or the U.S. Senate transmit to the President their written declaration of opposition to a proposed federal regulation, it shall require a majority vote of the House and Senate to adopt that regulation.”

Do you see the trap the amendment sets?  It would legalize rulemaking by federal agencies in the Executive Branch and would thus supersede Article I, §1 of our Constitution!  And the entire existing Code of Federal Regulations and the rulemaking process itself – which now violate the Constitution – would be made constitutional! [3]

The amendment would thus bring about a fundamental transformation of our Constitution from one where Laws are made by elected Representatives on only a handful of enumerated powers; to the administrative law state where laws are made by unelected, nameless, faceless bureaucrats in the Executive Branch (the same branch that accuses, prosecutes, and judges violations).  The executive agencies would make whatever Rules they please—and they would stand unless Congress, which often doesn’t even read the laws they pass, overrules it.

It protects 2nd Amendment Rights? 

In an email dated November 10, 2017, Mr. Buhler said his proposed amendment “protects 2nd Amendment Rights”.

But his amendment does the opposite – it legalizes all the existing federal regulations which restrict firearms and ammunition. Look at Title 27, Chapter II, Subchapter B, Parts 478 and 479 of the Code of Federal Regulations.  As of now, every rule in Parts 478 & 479 is unconstitutional as outside the scope of powers delegated in the Constitution; violates Article I, §1; and violates the 2nd Amendment. But with Buhler’s proposed amendment, all those rules would become constitutional!

Furthermore, the amendment would provide constitutional authority for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to make whatever future rules they want – and they would all be constitutional unless Congress objects and votes against them.

So the amendment vastly increases the powers of the federal government by legalizing what is now grotesquely unconstitutional.

  1. Daniel Webster’s Warning

We are in a state of moral, religious, intellectual, and psychological decline. We don’t know what our Constitution says, and didn’t bother to find out. We elected people who didn’t know and didn’t care – and they made a mess.

To fix the mess, we must learn and enforce the Constitution we have and elect people who know it and obey it.  We can gradually downsize the federal government to its enumerated powers. And as to Buhler’s proposed amendment, heed Daniel Webster’s warning:

“…If an angel should be winged from Heaven, on an errand of mercy to our country, the first accents that would glow on his lips would be, Beware! Be cautious! You have everything to lose; you have nothing to gain. We live under the only government that ever existed which was framed by the unrestrained and deliberate consultations of the people.  Miracles do not cluster.  That which has happened but once in six thousand years cannot be expected to happen often. Such a government, once gone, might leave a void, to be filled, for ages, with revolution and tumult, riot and despotism…”Webster’s Oration.

Endnotes:

[1] Administrative law judges in Executive Branch agencies decide whether violations of agency rules have occurred. The agencies thus act as lawmaker, prosecutor, and judge!  Isaiah 33:22 says God is our Judge, Law-giver, and King. Because humans are corrupt, our Framers separated the functions into three separate branches of government: Legislative, Executive, and Judicial.  And since the Oath of Office requires persons within each branch to obey the Constitution – not the other brancheseach branch has a “check” on the other branches.

[2] Where’s the constitutional authority for the Dept. of Education?  Energy? Agriculture?   Housing & Urban Development?  Labor?  Environmental Protection?  etc., etc., etc.?

[3] Our existing, but long ignored, Constitution limits federal power to the enumerated powers.  But the proposed amendment would supersede that limitation because it permits the exercise of federal power on whatever the Executive Agencies make rules about!

Welcome to the Elite Private Club of the World’s Central Bankers

12/12/2017

The Bank for International Settlements

  • BIS hosts committees that hash out global financial rules
  • But researchers say rate-cutting central bankers may be wrong
  • There’s a changing of the guard at the Bank for International Settlements, the little-known but influential organization that sits at the heart of the world’s financial system.

    Agustin Carstens, the former head of Mexico’s central bank, will succeed Jaime Caruana as general manager on Friday. He’s taking charge of an institution that stands out, in an age of increasing transparency and growing disillusionment with elites, as a bastion of global technocracy.

    The BIS headquarters towers over Basel like a 70-meter stack of copper coins, serving as a clubhouse for the world’s central bankers and financial rule makers. The likes of Mario Draghi, Janet Yellen and Mark Carney routinely hold confidential gatherings there with colleagues from around the globe.

    “Maybe if it didn’t exist you wouldn’t invent it now, but it plays an important role in the central banking world,” said Charlie Bean, the former deputy governor of the Bank of England who co-authored a report on the BIS’s research last year. “It’s the glue that helps keep the fraternity together.”

    That hasn’t stopped the BIS, which is owned by central banks and was founded in 1930, from challenging the economic orthodoxy of its own members. By 2003, William White, then economic adviser, and colleague Claudio Borio were pushing for preemptive monetary policy tightening to avoid dangerous asset bubbles, a contrarian view that looked prescient during the financial crisis.

    Read here for more on Borio’s views on deflation and financial stability

    It’s kept beating that drum even as central bankers in the U.S., Europe and Japan slashed interest rates to record lows and launched unprecedented bond-buying programs to fend off deflation. Borio, now head of the monetary and economic department at the BIS, argued in a September speech that central bankers may be underestimating the “generally benign” effects of globalization and technology on inflation, and should rethink their response to deflationary trends.

    He called out Larry Summers, the former U.S. Treasury Secretary and a proponent of the “secular stagnation” theory, who argues weak U.S. growth and inflation result from a persistent shortfall in demand.

    Summers, in response to questions, described the BIS as “an important source of thinking on issues relating to financial stability and economic performance,” while adding that he frequently disagrees with their conclusions.

    He’s not alone in questioning the BIS’s stance. A review of the bank’s publications co-authored by Bean and published in 2016 found the organization “doing a lot right” on the research front, but expressed reservations about the BIS “generating results to support the ‘house view.”’

    Joining the Debate

    Caruana, whose tenure began during the dark days of the financial crisis in April 2009, defended the BIS. “You may agree with what we say or not, but I think there is a value to introducing these elements in the debate,” he said last week, referring to the bank’s preference for taking a medium-term, global perspective and highlighting financial stability risks.

    Research aside, the BIS has grown in prominence in the years of monetary policy experimentation and banking regulation that followed the crisis. While some central banks made efforts to open up as their increasing powers drew scrutiny from voters and governments, in Basel they’ve rowed back. Jens Weidmann, president of Germany’s Bundesbank and chairman of the BIS’s board of directors, said sometimes secrecy is necessary.

    “Informed decisions on domestic monetary policy require a nuanced understanding of international developments,” Weidmann said. “The privacy of the meetings facilitates a frank and open exchange of views.’’

    Exclusive Groups

    The organization hosts the Financial Stability Board and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, which meet at the bank to hash out the rules that govern the international financial system. There’s also the Global Economy Meeting and its sister body, the Economic Consultative Committee, dubbed “the world’s most exclusive club” by Adam LeBor, the author of a book on the BIS.

    These latter two groups convene once every two months, on a Sunday, for formal sessions followed by a dinner on a top floor of the BIS tower, with 360-degree views of Basel and the mountains. They seldom open themselves to scrutiny from the press and the public.

    The clubby and shrouded nature of the organization and the committees it hosts contrasts with efforts at greater transparency elsewhere. The ECB bowed to public pressure in 2015 and began publishing the minutes of its meetings, while the Federal Reserve started holding quarterly press conferences in 2011.

    Less Visible

    As for the BIS, it has scrapped the press conference that used to accompany the publication of its annual report, while the Global Economy Meeting discontinued press briefings following its bi-monthly gatherings. Transcripts or minutes of the meetings held in Basel aren’t made available, and actions are relayed through press statements, if at all.

    That approach doesn’t sit well with everyone. “You don’t know what were the discussions in the room, or who got bullied into what,” said Sharon Bowles, the former chair of the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee of the European Parliament. “You get a fait accompli at the end.”

  • Caruana insisted there’s a lot of communication from the bank through papers and reports, and that improvements have been made in transparency and accountability. What’s more, rules set by the Basel Committee must be enacted by national legislatures, making them “subject to all the checks and balances,” he added.

    Eye on Bitcoin

    Carstens, 59, is a long-standing member of the global financial elite. He earned a doctorate in economics from the University of Chicago and served as finance minister before taking up his role at the Bank of Mexico in 2010. In his new job, he said he’ll focus on the BIS’s traditional role of facilitating communication between central banks, while keeping a skeptical eye on cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.

    “An area where the BIS will devote a lot of resources is to virtual assets, which traditionally are called cryptocurrencies, but we don’t believe that they are currencies,” Carstens said.

    Yet there’s little sign the institution will raise the curtain on the secretive proceedings it hosts any time soon.

    “There’s a sense of exclusivity among the governors,” said Stefan Gerlach, who worked there on two occasions between 1992 and 2007 and later served as deputy governor of Ireland’s central bank. “They like to be in Basel and talk among colleagues.”

Why The Globalists Need A War, And Soon

12/10/2017

http://alt-market.com/articles/3329-why-the-globalists-need-a-war-and-soon

By Brandon Smith

It is difficult to gauge and understand geopolitical and economic events without first comprehending the fact that much of what happens in the world is engineered to happen and with a specific encompassing goal in mind. If you subscribe to the theory that all is random “chaos” and outcomes are circumstantial or coincidental, then you will be lost in the dark on most things. If you think a globalist “conspiracy” would require “too much control” or foresight, I would point out that organized conspiracy by people in power is a matter of history, not of theory. If such cabals were prevalent in the past, it is rather foolish to dismiss the reality that they are prevalent today.

In my articles “The Economic End Game Explained” and “The Economic End Game Continues,” I outline considerable evidence supporting the following conclusion: International financiers and political puppets in Western AND Eastern countries share a deep rooted ideology called “globalism” or the “new world order.” This ideology demands total centralization of economy and government resulting in a single global fiscal authority, a single global monetary system and a one world ruling structure. Obviously, such a pursuit would take extensive time and planning. It is a long term project, with moments of accelerated change.

The globalists refer to the process of their intended change as the “global economic reset.” A reset of the world’s economic processes is not so far fetched as skeptics like to argue. When an organized group of ideologues maintains control over the currency production and interest rates of most nations on the planet, it would hardly be difficult to manipulate politicians, manipulate legislation or even scientifically conjure financial bubbles and collapses. By extension, it would also be simple to trigger international conflicts if needed.

But why would war be a necessary ingredient to globalization?

War is the ultimate distraction, the ultimate divider and, perhaps ironically, the ultimate consolidator. In the past century, war always seems to follow or coincide with economic crisis events that are later exposed as products of the banking elites and their aggressive monetary policies. And, in the aftermath of these wars, supranational institutions are often founded (like the League of Nations, the United Nations, the Bank for International Settlements and the International Monetary Fund) as “solutions” to preventing mass tragedies from ever happening again. War is a social steroid promoting mutation, usually in an unhealthy way.

In recent years the concept of “world war” has given way to a more insidious trend of constant and sporadic regional wars. In most cases these regional wars have helped to contribute to the steady downfall of the U.S. through accumulating national debts as well as international distrust or hatred. In fact, one might conclude that if we were to look at the macro-picture of the vast array of regional wars being perpetrated by the globalists we would see that all of them combined are amounting to a kind of world war in a different form.

That said, the globalists will need a new and far larger catalyst for their reset, and soon. Why?  Because a sizable distraction is essential to the next phase of the ongoing collapse. A pervasive scapegoat is needed; one that can be blamed for almost any negative scenario. This draws public attention away from the globalists themselves as the culprits behind fiscal crisis, maybe so much so that it will take decades before the mainstream ever questions what actually happened, if they ever question anything at all.

The fear generated through an uncertain war also acts as a form of psychological alchemy, transmuting the collective public mindset to accept centralization they never would have accepted otherwise.

Here is the issue at hand — central banks are seeking a monetary reset more than anything else. A monetary reset demands massive debt, followed by massive stimulus, followed by fiscal tightening, then massive inflation, followed by currency implosion that opens the door to a replacement structure (most likely in the form of blockchain technology and cyrptocurrency). The credit crisis of 2008 conveniently provided at least two of these elements so far, vast debt and stimulus measures. Today, we are beginning to witness the fiscal tightening phase of this process.

As I have been warning since before the Fed taper of QE, the central bank trend will lead to a removal of stimulus support, facilitating a crushing blow to bonds and equities markets. Now, interestingly enough, the Bank for International Settlements is warning of the same thing as 2017 comes to a close. It should be noted that this is not the first time the BIS warned of an impending crash; they also predicted with keen timing the derivatives and credit crash back in 2007. This was, of course, too little too late for the masses to react in any positive way, though.

Their latest warning arrives on the heels of the December Federal Reserve meeting at which it is widely expected that the central bank will raise interest rates yet again while taking the next step towards reducing their balance sheet. Many mainstream and alternative economists doubted the taper of QE and doubted the hiking of interest rates. They were wrong. Just as the doubts over the Fed balance sheet reductions are wrong. The pullback in these measures will invariably strike bonds and equities in a negative way. Time is running out.

But, the banking elites have taken steps. For example, they have in place a perfect distraction in the form of the Trump Administration. With Trump loudly and proudly taking credit for the stock market bull run over the course of the past year, who do you think the public will blame when those same markets go south as the central bank pulls the rug out? Probably not the Fed or the establishment banks.

Trump has also in an odd way created the perfect rationale for the Fed as they increase interest rates and end the cheap money that has been feeding stocks for so long. With the passage of Trump’s tax “reform” plan, the fed can now argue that interest rates MUST be raised in order to create incentives for treasury investment and to pay for Trump’s intended public works programs and military expansion goals. Meaning, the fed can claim it is not culpable for any negative effects from removing cheap capital from the table because Trump’s actions demanded it.

I would also point out that in most cases in history the Fed has lowered interest rates immediately following tax cuts and reforms. They did this after Reagan’s tax reforms in 1981 and in 1986, as well as after George W. Bush’s tax reforms in 2001. Juxtapose that with 2018, as the Fed intends to continue RAISING interest rates in the wake of Trump’s tax reforms. Meaning, they are taking the opposite action from what they have often done in the past.  Something to think about…

Trump’s tax plan itself is primarily a distraction from the real problem. First, when comparing tax brackets from this past year to the intended tax brackets for next year under the Trump reforms, there is almost no change whatsoever for the average American. The only major reductions in taxes are, no surprise, in the form of corporate tax cuts; reducing the corporate tax ceiling from 35 percent to 20 percent. This is trickle-down economics at best, and not a solution to a single problem facing the public and the country in terms of the flailing economy.

Second, why are we talking about income tax “reform” when we should be talking about abolishing the income tax and the Federal Reserve altogether? Whatever happened to that dialogue? It has disappeared down the memory hole.

Trump’s tax plan will do nothing to slow or undo the current economic crisis because the crisis stems directly from central banking monetary policies and interest rate manipulations.  Tax reform is far too little far too late, and stands as nothing more than meager bone thrown to conservatives to keep them quiet for a while.  This is what Trump’s tax reform does do very well, though — it rallies conservatives around Trump, regardless of whether it actually helps them or not. Much like Obama’s universal health care bill, which has proven to be a continued disaster in practice, but was rather successful at the time of its passage in rallying the liberal base. Trump is certainly going to need a base of public support if he is going to initiate a major war campaign.

North Korea continues to be the most likely powder keg for the next distraction event.  Two months of quiet led people with short attention spans to dismiss the notion, and perhaps some of them will double down and continue their denials, but it is growing more difficult to ignore by the day.   I would argue that North Korea is the most viable option simply because almost no one expects a war with the isolated nation to happen. The level of complacency despite all the signals to the contrary is palpable.

The U.S. has staged three aircraft carrier groups in the region for the first time in a decade. Major combat exercises are underway, designated Vigilant Ace 18, specifically designed to simulate an invasion of North Korea with over 230 aircraft and 12,000 American troops participating. North Korea has warned of “nuclear war” as a consequence.

North Korea may have the ability to follow through, at least on a limited scale, as they have recently test launched what appears to be a huge leap in missile technology — an ICBM capable of carrying multiple warheads and striking the Eastern seaboard of the U.S.  How the North Koreans came to possess this technology so quickly is a question everyone should be asking.

In response, the war rhetoric has been amplified. White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster has stated that North Korea is the greatest immediate threat to the U.S., saying that the potential for war “is increasing every day.” Warmonger and enemy of the Constitution, Lindsay Graham, has stated that the families of U.S. military personnel should be moved out of South Korea for their own safety, and that “We’re getting close to military conflict.

So how close is close? I maintain that war with North Korea is likely by the second quarter of 2018.  I also maintain the globalists will continue the strategy of multiple regional conflicts and global economic warfare rather than a one-off global nuclear mess that would wipe out trillions of dollars and decades of effort put into infrastructure and surveillance grids.

This would be advantageous to the globalists if they plan to continue interest rate hikes and stimulus removal by central banks around the world. It would help hide the effects of balance sheet reductions on stocks and it could expedite the fall of the dollar as the world reserve as Eastern and European nations apply alternatives like the IMF’s SDR basket system in response to the massive debt brought on by a military quagmire for the U.S.  In other words, catastrophic fiscal developments that were already going to happen anyway due to central bank sabotage will be entirely blamed on geopolitical crisis rather than the true culprits.

Finally, will the East step in militarily to prevent a conflict in North Korea? No. China has already stated that if North Korea attacks first, then they will not obstruct regime change by the U.S.

This flies in the face of those that believe in the false east/west paradigm.  China has left the door wide open to potential conflict.  If the globalists want a war in North Korea, they will create a war in North Korea, and the Chinese have publicly admitted they will step out of the way to let it happen. A false flag is probable. More provocations leading to a violent response by North Korea would also be rather easy to produce. So far, North Korea remains the best existing shock and awe event to hide a globally disintegrating economic situation. Would the globalists pass up an opportunity like this? There is no reason for them to do so.

Special Note: Moriarty’s speech on the “inevitability of war” is a rather accurate portrayal in my opinion of the globalist mindset – rationalizing the artificial engineering of conflicts because “human nature” dictates that such events will “happen anyway”, so why shouldn’t they benefit?  Of course, if human nature was a reliable ally of the power brokers, then they would not need to engineer these crises in the first place.  Such is the insane circular logic of organized psychopaths.

John Lennon Was Right The Government Is Run by Maniacs for Maniacal Means

12/08/2017
https://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/john_lennon_was_right_the_government_is_run_by_maniacs_for_maniacal_means_s?utm_source=The+Rutherford+Institute&utm_campaign=353d64d642-

 By John W. Whitehead

Not much has changed in the 37 years since John Lennon was gunned down by an assassin’s bullet.

All of the many complaints we have about government today—surveillance, corruption, harassment, political persecution, spying, over-criminalization, etc.—were used against Lennon, who never refrained from speaking truth to power and calling for social justice, peace and a populist revolution.

Little wonder, then, that the U.S. government saw Lennon as enemy number one.

A prime example of the lengths to which the U.S. government will go to persecute those who dare to challenge its authority, Lennon was the subject of a four-year campaign of surveillance and harassment by the U.S. government (spearheaded by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover), in an attempt by President Richard Nixon to have him “neutralized” and deported. As Adam Cohen of the New York Times points out, “The F.B.I.’s surveillance of Lennon is a reminder of how easily domestic spying can become unmoored from any legitimate law enforcement purpose.”

Years after Lennon’s assassination, it would be revealed that the FBI had collected 281 pages of surveillance files on him. As the New York Times notes, “Critics of today’s domestic surveillance object largely on privacy grounds. They have focused far less on how easily government surveillance can become an instrument for the people in power to try to hold on to power. ‘The U.S. vs. John Lennon’ … is the story not only of one man being harassed, but of a democracy being undermined.”

Such government-directed harassment was nothing new.

The FBI has had a long history of persecuting, prosecuting and generally harassing activists, politicians, and cultural figures, including Martin Luther King Jr.

In Lennon’s case, the ex-Beatle saw that his music could mobilize the public and help to bring about change. Yet while Lennon believed in the power of the people, he also understood the danger of a power-hungry government. “The trouble with government as it is, is that it doesn’t represent the people,” observed Lennon. “It controls them.”

By March 1971, when his “Power to the People” single was released, it was clear that Lennon was ready to participate in political activism against the U. S. government, the “monster” that was financing the war in Vietnam.

The release of Lennon’s Sometime in New York City album, which contained a radical anti-government message in virtually every song, only fanned the flames of the government’s war on Lennon.

In 1972, Nixon had the ex-Beatle served with deportation orders “in an effort to silence him as a voice of the peace movement.” Despite the fact that Lennon was not plotting to bring down the Nixon Administration, as the government feared, the government persisted in its efforts to have him deported. Equally determined to resist, Lennon dug in and fought back. Finally, in 1976, Lennon won the battle to stay in the country. By 1980, the old radical was back and ready to cause trouble.

Unfortunately, Lennon’s time as a troublemaker was short-lived.

Mark David Chapman was waiting in the shadows on Dec. 8, 1980, just as Lennon was returning to his New York apartment building. As Lennon stepped outside the car to greet the fans congregating outside, Chapman dropped into a two-handed combat stance, emptied his .38-caliber pistol and pumped four hollow-point bullets into Lennon’s back and left arm.

John Lennon was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

Much like Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Robert Kennedy and others who have died attempting to challenge the powers-that-be, Lennon had finally been “neutralized.”

Yet Lennon’s legacy lives on in his words, his music and his efforts to speak truth to power.

Even so, his work to change the world for the better is far from done.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, peace remains out of reach. Activists and whistleblowers continue to be prosecuted for challenging the government’s authority. Militarism is on the rise, all the while the governmental war machine continues to wreak havoc on innocent lives. And those who do dare to speak up are labeled dissidents, troublemakers, terrorists, lunatics, or mentally ill and tagged for surveillance, censorship or, worse, involuntary detention.

As Lennon shared in a 1968 interview:

I think all our society is run by insane people for insane objectives… I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal means. If anybody can put on paper what our government and the American government and the Russian… Chinese… what they are actually trying to do, and what they think they’re doing, I’d be very pleased to know what they think they’re doing. I think they’re all insane. But I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.”

So what’s the answer?

Lennon had a multitude of suggestions.

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”

“Produce your own dream. If you want to save Peru, go save Peru. It’s quite possible to do anything, but not to put it on the leaders….You have to do it yourself.”

“Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.”

“War is over, if you want it.”

In other words, fighting the evil of the American police state can only come about by way of conscious thoughts that are put into action.

Do you want an end to war? Then stop supporting the government’s military campaigns. Do you want government violence against the citizenry to end? Then demand that your local police de-militarize. Do you want a restoration of your freedoms? You’ll have to get the government to recognize that “we the people” are the masters in this relationship and government employees are our public servants.

The choice is ours.

The power (if we want it), as Lennon recognized, is in our hands.

“The people have the power, all we have to do is awaken that power in the people,” concluded Lennon. “The people are unaware. They’re not educated to realize that they have power. The system is so geared that everyone believes the government will fix everything. We are the government.”

For the moment, the choice is still ours: slavery or freedom, war or peace, death or life.

The point at which we have no choice is the point at which the monsters—the maniacs, the powers-that-be, the Deep State—win.

As Lennon warned, “You either get tired fighting for peace, or you die.”

News With Views Is one of the oldest and best sources of political articles in America and they have been taken down, possibly by Google. This is only the beginning of what the big corporations are going to do to  loyal Americans who are seeking answers to the tyranny we are experiencing from the powers that be. America needs people with courage to light up the phone lines to their so called representatives and complain until they relent and protect our freedom of speech.

This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. —Luke 2:12-13 NASU

The political climate at the birth of Christ was more volatile than we know it today in America.  If someone wanted to make an accurate movie about the times Christ was born in, it would be a fascinating movie full of war, espionage, national and personal struggle.  Rome was the terrible beast of Daniel’s vision, and had devoured most of Europe into the Middle East.  The Jews left in Judea were under the rule of Roman governors whose primary aim was to keep the captive nations in relative peaceful submission.

Just before Christ’s birth were the days of Julius Caesar.  The Roman Empire was being ruled by a triumvirate of Caesar, Pompey and Crassus, until Julius Caesar’s adopted son/nephew Caesar Augustus became the emperor of Rome in 27 B.C.  Julius Caesar, Pompey and Crassus had been busy extending the Roman Empire and conquering more kingdoms, nations and lands, so that by the time Julius Caesar was killed and Caesar Augustus inherited the rule, the Roman Empire was a prolific world power.  Their subjugated territories generally loathed their very oppressive rule, and the land of Judea was no exception.

What’s suspiciously missing in most accounts of this world history is the equally powerful Parthian Kingdom.  In fact, from (about) 64 B.C. to 225 A.D., Parthia and Rome were considered co-equal world powers.  (Think world superpowers akin to USSR/USA.)  This matters to the Christmas story, and it matters in history.  It’s important we grasp the dynamics of this to some extent, but it’s hard to find an accurate expounding of it.

Rome’s aggressive kingdom’s eastern boundary vacillated along the Euphrates River, with Armenia being a hot spot of contention for dominion.  I’m going to expound on this a little because it’s quite important.  The Scythian Kingdom was north of the Parthian Kingdom, above the Black and Caspian Seas.  Parthia was akin to the ancient Persia Empire in geography, and in its early days was in the Persian Empire.  Rome had moved across Europe and northern Africa and had taken dominion through the Middle East up to about the Euphrates River, and was constantly trying to subjugate Armenia.

Because Rome was the terrible beast of Daniel’s vision, you have to envision a formidable adversarial empire bent on conquest.  They had brutally overthrown Carthage in the famous Punic Wars and expanded across north Africa, through Egypt and into the Middle East.  They were still trying to expand east beyond Judea into what was Parthian territory.

Israel had fallen to Assyria in stages, with their capital Samaria falling in 721 B.C.  This is really important and most of what I’ve observed in western Christianity doesn’t get this right.  Israel and Judah were two different countries since the days of King Rehoboam, Solomon’s son.  They never merged again, and the northern kingdom of Israel was ten tribes, while the southern kingdom of Judah was two.  Israel fell to Assyria in 721 B.C., and while the Assyrian king took Israelites into captivity, it was in no way the entire nation of Israelites.

In fact, there were waves of captivity along with waves of mass emigration.  In 745 B.C. Israelites were carried into captivity, and then five years later Tiglath-pileser, the Assyrian King, invaded Israel and took captive three and a half tribes:  Naphtali, Reuben, Gad and the ½ tribe of Manasseh.  [See 2 Kings 15:29; 1 Chron 5:26]  At this time scores of Israelites could see the writing on the wall and fled Israel over the next decade.  Spain, Iberia and the Black Sea region were territories the Israelites resettled.  The Israelites who migrated to the Black Sea region were known as Scythians.  This is such a big deal, so big that I want to sidebar on it…

The Scythians derive their name from “Sacae” or “Saka”, which in Hebrew terms refers to the ancestor Isaac.  [Hebrew drops the vowels, and variances are run accordingly.  For example:  iSaaC becomes variances of S-C with any combination of vowels inserted.  Hence, the SaCae named themselves according to their ancestor patriarch Isaac.  The Persians called the Scythian tribes the “Sacae”.  The Encyclopedia Britannica called the Saka and Scyths “synonymous”.]  This is equally a big deal when you realize that Latin writers (think Rome again) use “x” for “c”.  So Rome referred to the Scythians as “Saxoi” or “Saxones”, from where we get “Anglo-Saxon”.  The reason this is such a big deal is part of the scattered Israelite tribes can be traced quite easily to the Scythians/Saxons.

More sidebar:  When Paul wrote in Colossians 3:11, “Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free, but Christ is all, and in all.”  He is writing contrasts, opposites.  And he places Scythians opposite of Barbarians.  “Barbarian” literally means foreigner or alien, which clearly implies Scythians were NOT foreigners.  They were in fact, fellow Israelites.

We discover that roughly 27,000 Israelites were taken captive when Samaria fell in 721 B.C. [2 Kings 17:6]  One-third of Israel were taken captive thirteen years earlier in 734 B.C.  That roughly leaves about two-thirds of the Israelites as migrants, or refugees to other lands.

End sidebar.

The reason this migration of Israelites is so important is because we need to realize they didn’t die and they weren’t in Judea; they simply moved and renamed themselves.  Scythia and Parthia were neighbors sharing a north/south border.   The Jews in Judea in the days of Christ’s birth in Bethlehem were Jews of the tribe of Judah.

Parthia was established in 521 B.C., about 200 years after the fall of Israel and Samaria.  It was a 500 year kingdom under ONE dynasty:  Arsacid.  They were known to be of common origin with the Scythians and were subjects to King Darius under Medo-Persia until they revolted and placed themselves under Scythian protection for a period of time.

I need you to connect the dots to really gain understanding here.  If they were common origin with the Scythians, they were most likely in part or whole Israelites.  The indicators of this are many.  Arsaces was the first king of Parthia, and from where they get the Arsacid dynasty name.  The Parthians used an Aramaic title for king, known as MLKYN, which literally means “king of kings”.  It is derived from the Hebrew word for king used 2500 times in the Bible:  MLK.

Parthia was ruled by what was called a “Council of Parthians” which consisted of two primary groups:  Kinsmen and Wise Men.  The Kinsmen were the royal house of the royal Arsacid male bloodline, while the Wise Men consisted of the Senate (secular leaders) and the Magi (priests).  The Wise Men and Magi were known jointly as Megistanes.

Kings were elected by a concurrent vote of the two houses.  The Parthian empire was based on a feudal system that foreshadowed medieval Europe’s feudal system.  Parthian rulers were well-educated and multi-lingual.  The Magi (priests) numbered upwards of 80,000 and were considered a hierarchy of priests descended from ancient times.

I’m going to skip a lot of history here and nutshell that Parthia was under Greek’s rule during the days of Alexander the Great, but revolted and declared their independence in 256 B.C.  Parthia actually won their independence in 237 B.C. and shortly thereafter eastern Scythians merged into Parthia.

There were a series of famous Parthian kings from the line of Phraates and a long line of battles for territory and sovereignty over the next several decades, which eventually culminated in a series of battles with Rome.  I’m going to go over some of the history of this because it is so very important, and try to stay with me, even if it seems irrelevant.  As I continue, keep in mind that one of the primary roles of the Wise Men and Magi is the anointing, placement and deposing of the kings.

The Parthians suffered loss by the Seleucids in 129 B.C., which is the time of the Maccabees.  This is significant because the Maccabees gained independence in Judea for a short-lived time here.

A curious thing happened in 62 B.C. when Pompey made a promise to Parthia for territories in exchange for support in their war against Armenia.  After the war, Pompey reneged his promise to Parthia and Rome grievously insulted Parthia by not calling the Parthian King Phraates III by his title, “king of kings”.  From that point on, Rome and Parthia were adversaries and the Euphrates River became the recognized border between their empires.  Note that this is about sixty years before Christ’s birth.

Crassus attacked Parthia in 53 B.C. and Rome suffered severe losses.  Parthia retaliated three years later by attacking Rome’s eastern provinces.  A series of battles form 40-37 B.C. caused Parthia to capture Judea and push Rome out of Asia Minor.  Phraates IV captured 35,000 Roman soldiers.  The Jews asserted their independence from Rome in this time and placed a Jewish prince, Antigomus, to rule Palestine as a Parthian satrap.  (They would have been under Parthian rule at this time.)  Note how close we are to Christ’s entrance.

In 37 B.C. Rome counterattacked and regained their territories.  Mark Antony had the Jewish Vassal King Antigomus beheaded and King Herod replaced him.  Now the dots should be connected.  It was in this year, 37 B.C., that Mark Antony (yes, famous with Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt) invaded Parthia with 16 legion and 113,000 man army to try to recover the seven legions of soldiers captured under Crassus.  Parthia dominated this battle.  Rome lost 10,000 men and retreated in winter through Armenia.  Rome recaptured the land west of the Euphrates at this time, and a sort of treaty was reached agreeing to a co-existence on their respective sides of the Euphrates.  Rome had yet to win a significant battle against Parthia and Caesar ordered peace with Parthia at all costs.

I’m not going to join the ranks to declare exactly when Christ was born, as there seems to be credible evidence for a few different dates.  However, we do know Herod the Great was the Roman King at the time of Christ’s birth.  Now see what happens…

Matt 2:1  Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Remember that Wise Men was the proper title of Parthian Megistanes.  The Greek word translated “wise men” is “magian”,  which literally means “Persian astronomer or priest”.  Parthia governed Persia at the time, so the wise men were Parthian nobles &/or priests.

Parthian Megistanes did not travel lightly.  They would have traveled with an entourage of servants, family, animal handlers, etc. under a military company of troops.  Because they were traveling with so much wealth, they would have had an impressive infantry around them.  Josephus and other historians record such caravans into the tens of thousands.  At the very least it would have been a company of a couple thousand, but more likely 20,000 or more.

Matt 2:2 Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”  

The Parthians were Scythians (who were part of the scattered tribes of Israelites).  Therefore the Parthians were Israelites.  The Magi were the priests of Parthia (who were of a hierarchy of priests who descended from ancient times).  The Magi were none other than the Levitical priests!  The Magi were responsible for keeping the line of the kings of Israel.  The Magi (Persian priest) were responsible for following the kingly bloodline.  While their first inclination would be the kingly bloodline in Parthia (the Arsacid dynasty), they would equally be familiar and aware of the bloodline of Judah, as David’s royal bloodline is heir to the throne over all Israel, and is the bloodline the Messiah was prophesied to come.

The bloodline of Judah resided in Judea, while the scattered tribes of Israel were in various places.  Ample research indicates the Scythians/Parthians were predominantly of the tribes of Manasseh and Ephraim*, of whom the priestly tribe of the Levites would be interspersed within.  Their ancient knowledge and traditions would 1) know the prophecies and 2) would know the timing of Daniel’s prophecy and 3) would know how to watch and interpret the signs.

It was no small feat for the multi-thousand ensemble of priests, royalty, military and servants to pack up and travel to Judea!  What would make foreigners even care about someone born in another country??  They wouldn’t!  Unless it mattered to them personally!  And of course the Israelites would care a great deal about fulfilled prophecy and the “King of the Jews”.  They would risk national security to acknowledge the birth of the long-awaited “King”.  They would bring gifts of frankincense (anointing oil), gold (royal treasuries), and myrrh (embalming oil, prophetic) because it would be entirely appropriate and fitting for the Megistanes to anoint and acknowledge the birth of the King.

Matt 2:3  When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

Jerusalem is a trading city that would receive caravans regularly.  Three travelers would not have caused the alarm of the entire city.  But a massive military escort from their enemies under a peace treaty entering their territory inquiring of a King would greatly alarm both Herod and the city.  Recall their peace treaty that neither empire would cross the Euphrates River, and now a military escort in the tens of thousands had entered town.  Thirty years ago the Parthians had crossed the Euphrates and taken back Judea.  To squash the revolution Mark Antony had the Jewish vassal king beheaded.  This would have been in the forefront of Herod and Jerusalem’s thinking.  Surely they were trembling at the fear of war!

The Parthian Megistanes had an immediate audience with King Herod and an inquiry was made.  Herod feigned compliance, but it was probably more because he didn’t have the troops to defend should the Parthians have an aggressive intent.  [He would have less troops because they were under a peace treaty.]

Herod conferred with Jewish hierarchy about their prophecies to ascertain Bethlehem from Micah 5:2.  (Why would Persian priests care about Israeli prophecies??)  The Jews and wise men would have been familiar with Daniel’s prophecy (9:25-26) and known the timing was upon them for the Messiah…

So this Christmas season marvel at the pinnacle of history in the birth of Christ!  It is a story unparalleled in all of time!  The Scriptures should come alive as we envision the Parthian Magi traveling with their tens of thousands to worship the newborn king!  Marvel at the revelation of His Name, (which we now understand is the title of the Parthian kings):

And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.  His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself.  He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.  And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.   From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.  And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” —Revelation 19:11-16 (NASU)


Walking Into Armageddon

12/06/2017

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/12/05/walking-into-armageddon/

Paul Craig Roberts

The orchestrated hostility toward Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea protects the $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex by convincing the American public that the US is threatened by enemies. It also keeps alive Democratic Party hopes that Trump can be removed from office, and it has prevented President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. I have emphasized for some time that Washington’s gratuitous and aggressive actions against Russia and the constant barrage of false accusations against Russia and its government have convinced Russia that Washington is planning a military attack. There is nothing more reckless and irresponsible than to convince a nuclear superpower that you are preparing an attack on them.

One would think that such irresponsible and reckless behavior would have the citizenry aroused and the media reporting the risk. Yet, there is only silence. It is more important to the media whether NFL players stand for the national anthem and that some male politicians show sexual interest in women in inappropriate ways. Insouciant America is walking into Armageddon.

A few days ago former US Secretary of Defense William J. Perry added his voice to mine and to those of the few who understand the danger. Perry said:

“When the Cold War ended, I believed that we no longer had to take that risk [nuclear annihilation] so I put all my energy into efforts to dismantle the deadly nuclear legacy of the Cold War. During my period as the Secretary of Defense in the 90s, I oversaw the dismantlement of 8,000 nuclear weapons evenly divided between the United States and the former Soviet Union. And I thought then that we were well on our way to putting behind us this deadly existential threat, But that was not to be. Today, inexplicably to me, we’re recreating the geopolitical hostility of the Cold War, and we’re rebuilding the nuclear dangers. … We are doing this without any serious public discussion or any real understanding of the consequences of these actions. We are sleepwalking into a new Cold War, and there’s very real danger that we will blunder into a nuclear war. If we are to prevent this catastrophe, the public must understand what is happening.” http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-03/former-us-defense-secretary-explains-why-nuclear-holocaust-now-likely

How can the American public understand when they do not know, because the few voices telling them are not reported? Indeed, the military/security complex, the Israel Lobby and the lobby’s American agents among the neoconservatives are actively working to discredit those who are aware of the dangerous situation.

The power of the military/security complex and the Israel Lobby, the two prime war-mongers of the 21st century, have immobilized the President of the United States. Trump is helpless in the face of a special prosecutor who is “investigating Russiagate,” a hoax created for the express purpose of preventing President Trump from restoring normal relations with a nuclear superpower.

Experts including William Binney, who developed the universal spy program for NSA thinking mistakenly that it would not be used against American citizens, have stated publicly that, if Russiagate were real and not an orchestrated hoax, the NSA would have all the evidence, making special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s “investigation” completely pointless.

One would think that even those who comprise the presstitute media would be able to figure out that NSA has the evidence if it exists. Instead, the presstitutes cooperate with Mueller in creating a fake news story, one that has been kept alive for over a year.

A country in which the media lack integrity cannot be a democracy as the people have no accurate information with which to make decisions and hold government accountable. The American presstitute media functions as a control arm for the powerful vested interests that are turning the United States into a police state that serves only a few hundredths of One Percent.

Americans have been lied to about everything. I agree that the lies go back a long way. To keep this column to a readable length, we can start with the many lies of the Clinton regime. The war on Serbia was done in order to humiliate Russia by proving that Russia was helpless in the face of American might to come to the aid of its ally, and it was done to establish the use of NATO as an arm of, and cover for, US military aggression.

Then we come to 9/11, the official explanation of which is rejected not only by Osama bin Laden but also by every expert unafraid to open his/her mouth.

Then we have the fake reason for the US invasion of Afghanistan, a disaster for America as it was for the Soviets. A handful of lightly armed Afghans defeated “the world’s only superpower,” just as they defeated the powerful Soviet army.

Then we have the fake charges of Saddam Hussain’s “weapons of mass destruction” hyped to the heavens by the corrupt American presstitutes. This amazing lie, disavowed by the UN weapons inspectors, was used despite the evidence to the contrary to invade Iraq and to destroy a country. This lie was later repudiated by US Secretary of State Colin Powell, who regretted the stain on his reputation caused by the George W. Bush/Dick Chaney regime’s misuse of his credibility before the UN.

Then we have the fake charges against Libya’s Gadaffi that were used to murder Gadaffi, to Hillary’s great delight, and to destroy the most successful country in Africa.

The ISIS mercenaries that Hillary and Obama used to destroy Libya were sent to destroy Syria when Russia and the British Parliament blocked Obama’s plan to send American troops to invade Syria. We have been subjected to years of lies from Washington and the presstitutes that Washington is fighting ISIS, when Washington sent ISIS to Syria to destroy Assad and the Syrian government.

And there is Somalia, another packet of Washington/pressitute lies. And the violation of Pakistan with the bombing of tribal areas falsely claimed to be al-Qaeda or Taliban supporters.

And there is Yemen devastated by Washington’s puppet Saudi Arabia.

And there are the false news reports of “Iranian nukes” and Iranian belligerent actions against Israel.

And “Russia invaded Ukraine” when in fact Washington overthrew with its financed NGOs the democratically elected Ukrainian government.

And now we hear that those who dare to tell the truth to Americans are “Russian agents” and “fake news purveyors.”

When a country’s government and media do nothing but lie 24/7, how can democracy exist. Clearly, it cannot.

Environmentl organizations are reporting that President Trump intends to abolish two national monuments by executive order in order to open protected lands to rape, ravage, and ruin by corporations. The two national monuments are Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante.

If Trump has the power to turn national monuments over to corporate campaign donors, he most certainly can have his Attorney General open an investigation of Hillary Clinton or even indict her on the already known evidence. He can issue a pre-emptive pardon of General Flynn, who is being framed on charges that do not relate to Russian influence in the presidential election. Indeed, he can have the Attorney General investigate or arrest Mueller for sedition and an attempt to overthrow the government of the United States. These charges are far more realistic than the charge Mueller has brought against Flynn.

But what does President Trump do? He twitters, complaining that Gen. Flynns life is being destroyed while “Crooked Hillary Clinton” walks around free. https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/12/no_author/crooked-hillary-walks-free/

Trump is correct, so why doesn’t he do something about it? What Flynn did was to ask the Russians not to over-react to the new sanctions that Obama placed on Russia in an effort to create such bad relations between the US and Russia that Trump woud be unable to normalize them. What Flynn did was entirely appropriate and has nothing to do with the hoax story of Russiagate. The real reason that the military/security complex is after Gen. Flynn is that he is the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and he said on a TV news show that the decision by the Obama regime to send ISIS to overthrow Syria was a “willful decision” that went against his recommendation.

In other words, Flynn let the cat out of the bag that ISIS was not an independently formed organization but a tool of US policy.

The presstitutes, of course, ignored Gen. Flynn’s statement. The only effect of Flynn’s statement was to set him up for retalliation, and that is what Mueller is doing.

What Mueller is doing is so corrupt that he really should be arrested and deported to Egypt.

Private interests and agendas have control over the US government. The people have no control. Washington works by selling legislation to the interest groups in exchange for campaign contributions. The private interests that provide the money that elects politicians’ get the laws that they want. For example, President Trump is giving the environmental despoilers two protected national monuments, but he is powerless to protect himself and has advisors.

The ruling oligarchy is making an example of Trump in order to ensure that no future presidential candidate makes a direct appeal to the people. When Trump said that he was going to govern in the interest of the people by bringing the off-shored jobs home, he attacked the profits of the global corporations, and when he said he was going to normalize relations with Russia, he attacked the power and profit of the military/security complex. He is now paying the price for his rashness.

The larger question is: what price will the American people and the rest of the world pay for the constraints the military/security complex has placed on Trump’s ability to normalize relations with Russia?


This Time of Year

12/05/2017

http://www.paulstramer.net/2017/12/this-time-of-year.html

By Anna Von Reitz

After Thanksgiving.  Before Christmas.  The world is in a rush, some of it happy, some of it grim.  At no other time of the year does the chasm between the haves and the have nots become more glaringly apparent or the pain of it so sharp.

This is as true for the members of The Living Law Firm as it is for everyone else.

We now have almost 200 former judges, former Bar Attorneys, paralegals, financial auditors, volunteer CPAs, court administrators, and historical researchers working full time to save America — and it is because of their work that we have been able to develop the knowledge base we have been able to share with all of you.

It’s because of them that we know the Civil War was an illegal commercial mercenary action.  It’s because of them that we were able to track down the Lieber Code and its modern-day versions enshrined in The Hague Conventions. It’s because of them that we have the complete details of the 1863 US bankruptcy, the 1907 bankruptcy of The United States of America, Inc., the 1933 bankruptcy of the United States of America, Inc., and the current bankruptcies, too.

These experts have proven that the Territorial United States has been run under Martial Law for 150 years, that the US Army is the one responsible for supervising the Bar Associations (and failing to do so) and so much more that is absolutely crucial if we are to understand the world we are living in and the constant cognitive dissonance between Yankee Doodle and the Land of the Free and the ugly fascist surveillance state and threats from people on our payroll.

It’s also because of these legal eagles and historical researchers that we have been able to develop such a clear understanding of the fraud process that has been used to disinherit us, the meaning of the BIRTH CERTIFICATES and all the issues of genocide, enslavement, and institutionalized crime that are the festering results of the so-called American Civil War.

Thanks to these unsung and largely unknown heroes, you now know how to document and reclaim your names and estates— and ultimately, regain control of the courts and the agencies and the banks.

It’s thanks to these volunteers and many, many more working thousands of unpaid hours that you now have a realistic and reliable —and if I may say so, finally, a simple path forward– and the means to claim the protections owed to you.

You can begin to breathe again.  You no longer have to live in fear of federal tax collectors and attorneys coming after you with charges based on foreign statutory laws.  The worst of it has been exposed.  It is only a matter of time before it is undone entirely.  Good-bye to fraudulent mortgages and loan practices.  Farewell to bogus “titles” being held against your name and assets.

Most of the members of The Living Law Firm are older folk like me, who, one way or another have enough to live on; but, we also have young men and women with families still at home to support, and a few folks who have just plain suffered misfortune this past year— medical problems, accidents and injuries, floods, exploding water heaters, and all the other assortment of “nasty things that can happen to all of us”.

I know that everyone is struggling to a greater or lesser extent, but if you can, please help those who have struggled so long and so hard to help you—-and who have shared the results of their labor and research for free.

We have a basement to back-fill in Portland and a sump pump to install.  We have need of a large capacity home heating stove in the same area.  And fuel for it to buy.  We have a family of four living in a mobile home outside of Jackson Hole and tonight they are huddled together around a kerosene space heater without electricity or water. Emergency efforts are underway.  There is a retirement-age couple in the Midwest living in a cheap, rented hotel room, dependent on us and an $800 a month pension until better things happen for them.

On top of everything else that I have to face and do, I have to try to help and take care of the people and families who make up The Living Law Firm..  I have to try to meet these needs and implore your help to do it, too, because of what these people have already done.

Many of the people who have made the most important discoveries are not well-off.  They aren’t retired.  Many of the members of The Living Law Firm struggle to pay the rent, the phone bill, the fuel bill, the college loan bill—- all of it.  They are living as average people making extraordinary efforts and contributions to us all.

While others have created secret society groups and charged thousands of dollars to share what they have learned, and still more have run scams and charged for cures that don’t work and which get people into trouble—- The Living Law Firm has plodded forward and simply shared the fruits of all their labor for free with everyone and they have continued to advance toward their goal of delivering systemic, permanent relief to everyone.

Think about how far we have come in a year, and where we now stand.

Last year, we weren’t fully aware of all the implications of what went on in the Civil War.  Last year, we didn’t know the full extent of culpability and responsibility that the American military bears in all of this. Last year, we didn’t have a clear, proven, simple paper process to reclaim your name and estate.  And day by day, more pieces of the puzzle are brought forward and clicked in place….. by people who have to struggle to keep the lights on, buy Christmas dinner, and feed their dog.

So, we just ask among all the other needs and appeals that come at this time of year— remember our guys out here in the field. I continue to act as Paymaster for everyone.  My Paypal is avannavon@gmail.com and my snail mail is: Anna Maria Riezinger, c/o Post Office Box 520994, Big Lake, Alaska 99652. And if there is anyone in Portland who has the equipment and who knows how to back-fill a basement……

May all those who read this be blessed, may our long labor of love come to fruition as peace and freedom and plenty for everyone, may all the wonders of creation be alive in our hearts and may the peace of the True and Righteous Lord be with us.

Love you all!

Grandma
