Backyard Chickens Must Be Registered In North Carolina “For Your Own Safety”

Warsaw-backyard-chickens

There isn’t much that feels more self-reliant than going out to your backyard hen house to get fresh eggs for breakfast.  There’s no need for USDA approval, you know what your hens have been eating, and you don’t have to pay a premium price and hope that the farm who raised the chickens that laid those grocery store eggs actually treated the hens humanely.  Bonus points if the bacon you fry up comes from a local farm, and bonus BONUS points if you raised that little piggie yourself. Raising backyard chickens is incredibly rewarding.

It’s pure freedom, this control over your own food.

Of course, until you have to register your chickens. Then, as food freedom activist Joel Salatin says, “Everything I want to do is illegal.”

With so many people moving towards self-reliance, you had to know it was only a matter of time before the government got involved.

And now they have. But don’t worry, it’s all for your own good.

In North Carolina, the state’s Department of Agriculture wants to protect you against the avian flu. So regardless of the number of chickens you have, you must register for a state farm ID number as of August 1, 2015. Surprisingly, this if free. Not surprisingly, this is mandatory.

Up until the recent avian flu fear, farm registration was voluntary. Now, even families with two or three hens in a nifty little moveable chicken tractor in the backyard must register.

According to State Veterinarian (who knew there was a State Veterinarian?) Doug Meckes, this is vital. “In planning our response for highly pathogenic avian influenza, one problem we’ve come across is that we can’t protect birds that we don’t know exist. We need to know where poultry are located so we can properly protect commercial and backyard flocks.”

Chicken owners must fill out a FORM LIKE THIS and declare all of their animals. According to the state’s website, this won’t be used for any other purpose than health tracking. “Information gathered through registration will be used solely for animal health purposes. This critical data will provide animal health officials with necessary contact information in case of an animal health concern and help identify animals and premises that may have been affected.”

Of course, I figure once you register your chickens, they’re no longer really your chickens. The state is just letting you use them. Think back to Michigan, a couple of years ago, when a farmer was forced to destroy his heritage pigs because the state said so. Who can forget the shepherd in Canada whose beloved sheep were thought to be a threat and summarily destroyed? Personally, I’d prefer that my chickens remain happy little libertarian chickens, footloose, fancy free-ranging, and unfettered by a license.

Given the history of any type of registration (cough *guns* cough), is it any stretch of the imagination whatsoever to think your backyard chickens or your small homestead will not become vulnerable to some kind of future “public safety” mandate? Don’t you think they could be subject to seizure or execution based on the whims of the state? And what do you think will happen to families who don’t register their chickens? Do you really honestly feel safer with the state knowing your business? Am I going to have to write an article about stealth chicken keeping to aid and abet wannabe backyard chicken bootleggers?

While this is presented to the public as a way to keep everyone healthy, don’t be fooled. It’s “game on” in the war against self-reliance.

Protect All Human Life – Defund “Planned Parenthood”! (VIDEO)

aborted-baby-parts_planned-parenthood
By: Ron Paul Institute |

The recent undercover video showing a Planned Parenthood official negotiating for the sale of the organs of aborted babies has caused a firestorm of outrage. But both political parties will use this scandal for political gain. Ron Paul remembers from Congress the bipartisan deal allowing US funding of abortions worldwide. And if “black lives matter” — which they do — why is the holocaust of 60 million black abortions not being discussed?

Transcript:

Undercover Buyer: What would you expect for intact tissue? What sort of compensation? What sort of…

Deborah Nucatola : Well, why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying?

Ron Paul: Hello everybody and thank you for tuning in to the Liberty Report. With me today is Daniel McAdams. Daniel, good to have you with us today.

Daniel McAdams: Good morning, Dr. Paul.

Ron Paul: Good. I’d like to talk a little bit today about what a lot of people are talking about. It is this grotesque scandal going on with Planned Parenthood. I never think of them as planning parenthood. They are planning other things, they are planning how not to become parents. Many people are just seeing the video and it’s been on TV a whole lot. How bad it really has gotten.

There’s two issues here. One is the principle of abortion and the right to life and whether the fetus is human and whether killing the fetus is an act of violence and how do you handle this. That’s one issue, but another issue is who pays for this. I’ve argued that, I think the far left, the pro-abortion people are going to make a grand mistake in this, this might represent a grand mistake and that is forcing people who devoutly believe that taking this life is equivalent to killing a human being. They claim that taxpayers ought to pay for it. We hear that the taxpayers pay over a half a billion dollars to Planned Parenthood to do this. We don’t know a whole lot about that; I think there’s been some stories in the paper about it, it’s even difficult to find how this money is being spent.

Daniel McAdams: Yeah, that’s true. Mary Hansen, who writes for The Federalist, she was the first, when this latest scandal broke, which is, as you know, the selling the body parts, the organs of these unborn children. She broke the story of Federal funding. Obviously, she sent a freedom of information request to the government. As you know, these things can take years to process, so she requested an expedited process, because the issue is in the news right now, everyone’s talking about it. Her request was denied for expedited for of processing and here’s their reasoning. This is Health and Human Services; they said ‘This is not a breaking story of general public interest.’

Ron Paul: They only wish. Obviously this is a big story. Everybody is for abortion, we put them into one category of being leftists. There are some people who have a humanitarian instinct and they’re doing well and they might not even be for the funding and all of a sudden this comes up, so this might dampen enthusiasm, because there’s moves already in the Congress to try to cut back. That’s only part of it, because I think that we have to look at the big picture and in the big picture is that we have the situation we have today, even the funding, because of two political parties, the Republicans and the Democrats. I mean, when Republicans were in charge, they had the House, the Senate and the Presidency; they did nothing to cut back on this. I recall and I’m sure you do too when I was in Congress, there was funding in our foreign aid packages which would go to doing abortions. The conservative Republicans had an agreement with the left ‘Will you grant us this Mexico language and we’ll say that none of this money can be spent for abortion, only for birth-control.’ The Republicans would go along with this and everyone would be happy. The Republicans were against abortion, they stopped the funding and the left got their money.

Daniel McAdams: Then you ruined the Party, because you’ve said all the money is fungible. You give in for this and you freeze money for that.

Ron Paul: I wanted to make that point that you have to take in the whole picture, you have to deny all funding, because of that point you make it. It’s fungible. They say “yeah they spend more money on birth-control pills, you have more money left to do the abortion.’ The principle is so bad. I mean people can have principles to stand against abortion, that’s one thing, but they should have a principle stand ‘Why are governments involved in this and taking money from one group and forcing them to pay for this.’ Republicans tend to work together; you take the issue of welfare itself. Why do we have it ‘Oh, it’s all the Democrats.’ Sure, ‘the Republicans don’t vote for any welfare.’ They vote for welfare for poor and a lot of the welfare for the rich. It’s always this competition going on. I remember when I tried to cut that funding out. The people who became enraged were the pro-life Republicans, because they had a deal set and I was messing up their deal. We were going to get the credit for stopping money being spent on abortions and at the same time the Democrats would get the money. Democrats didn’t care; they knew they were going to get the money. It was so bad that some of the top leaders in the Right to Life movement in Congress were furious with me, one even would not vote for, he just ducked the vote, because he didn’t want to be seen voting against this funding. That is pure hypocrisy.

Daniel McAdams: Yeah, I remember when you raised your hand and you offered to cut all the funding and I know you won’t say it, but it was Chris Smith and Henry Hyde, great champions of the pro-life movement. I remember the fury that rose in the room when you spoiled the Party.

Ron Paul: Yes and unfortunately it continues this way in Washington. The other issue that comes up has to do with who gets aborted. Some people say only poor people get aborted. That’s not true at all. Is it only unmarried girls? They get a lot of married people. If you go by race, guess what, blacks get the most abortions. One of the stories that I have told that really got my attention was in 1973 when I gave my first political speech. It had to do, of all things, with Federal Reserve and money. We had just gone through this episode of getting off the gold standard and putting on wage and price controls and it was chaotic. High inflation and high unemployment rate.

I gave this speech in a Republican function and a question came up about abortion and I said, because Roe versus Wade came out in 1973, that same particular year, and I took my position and I believe it was human life and to kill a human life is an act of aggression and I didn’t support it. Afterwards, this person didn’t say this in public, but it was a middle-aged Republican businessman, a typical Republican. He came over and he said ‘Ron, let me tell you, this is good,’ he says ‘because this will mean that the blacks will be aborted.’ I thought ‘Holy man’ and this was from a conservative Republican and I dismissed that, that’s not conceivable, but when you look at these statistics, 16 million blacks have been aborted since 1973 and all done in the name of humanitarianism and goodness and helping people.

Daniel McAdams: This horrific sentiment that this gentleman expressed to you is not that different from the Founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, who was a Eugenicist, she believed that non-whites need to be killed, that people who are deformed need to be killed. Really, what he was saying was consistent with the founders of Planned Parenthood. On the blacks, it is interesting I was looking at Pat Buchanan today, he makes a very good point ‘The blacks matter movement is expressing legitimate concern about the number of violent confrontations that young black men are having with the police officers. We know how those are turning out. He points out that the number of black man and boys killed by police officers every year is less than one tenth of one percent of the number of blacks that are killed in the womb every year.

Ron Paul: When you talk about the group that supports the abortion program, they are generally described as progressive. I sort of like the word progressive, I’d like to think of myself as being progressive in ideas, but that’s not what they think. This is so regressive, using violence like this. They were more advanced when Hippocrates lived and thought that doctors shouldn’t be involved in this, but now doctors are involved in all kinds of things from torture, to euthanasia and abortion. This film that we looked at is just the epitome of a physician talking like this.

Then, there’s the other thing that Republicans, in spite of their inconsistencies that we already pointed out, there’s many that are very consistent. They believe sincerely in pro-life position, but they just as sincerely believe that these young people, men and women now, should join the military, join the forces, defend liberty. Not only for defending our country, but for preemptive war, you go six thousand miles away and get involved in this and they depend on it and they see no inconsistencies. I think a pro-life position is you ask to protect the best you can the rights of the unborn and also when they’re older and some people put out statistics that more blacks, percentage-wise, die in war as well as in crimes.

Daniel McAdams: That is a good hypocrisy that the left often points out that the pro-life Christian right-wing people that they are pro-life until the kid is 18 and they send him off. You spent a long career in medicine and you were intimately involved in this issue for number of years and you even wrote a book about it. You shared I know with me and so many others some of your earlier experiences with this.

Ron Paul: Yes, I often mentioned that when I was in medical school from ’57 to ’61, finished college. By the time I got out of medical school in ’61 I had not heard the word abortion in my medical career. They weren’t talking about it, negative or positive, it was just a non-issue. By 1968, after the revolution of the 60s, I claimed the law doesn’t cause the abortions; the people’s morality changed the abortions. The solutions come from the people, not the law.

By 1968 I was in the residency and they were doing abortions and it bothered me, because one time I walked in an operating room and they were doing, because we would do that to observe surgeries, they were doing a C-section, but it was on a small baby and they lifted the baby out, a couple of pounds and the baby cried and whimpered a little bit and they put it in a bucket and it lasted for five-ten minutes. Everybody in the room sort of pretended that it didn’t exist and that is when I decided that I had to resolve this in my mind, so I went and talked to the professor who was supportive of this and he said ‘well there is some very, very bad abnormalities and just as well abort them, don’t worry about it later on.’

That’s what his argument was and I said ‘sometimes you can’t tell for sure, you have to wait until birth.’ At that time we didn’t have great ultrasound and he said ‘Yeah, that’s true, we could wait until birth, but then at birth if you can tell that this child was grossly deformed then you should kill the child that is born.’ I said ‘Wow.’ I followed up with my concern “Yeah, but we don’t know about some of these diseases for years.’ He said ‘One of the circumstances is that maybe a year is the cutoff point.’ You can imagine with that attitude existing in the 60s, here we have people selling body parts. It’s pretty bad as far as I’m concerned.

I think this issue is going to be around for a while, hopefully it resolves, I hope we get more information and I hope we get more people look at this based on principle and think more consciously about the right to life. Truly there is justification to saying an unborn has rights. I as a physician, if I harmed the fetus, I can be sued rightfully so. If you’re in an automobile accident and the woman loses her child and aborts, that child is recognized as a living human being. If the man dies and the woman has the child, inheritance rights are established at conception, so there is a lot of legal arguments that it is truly alive human being and if it is, the taking of that life is an act of aggression.

There are always going to be difficult situations, because they want to turn the argument in to the day after conception to the day before birth. The pro-abortionists never want to think about it a week or two or a month or two before birth. It’s always something vague. It’s not so vague now, when we look at this story, where they want to gently do the abortions to preserve the tissue and sell it so they can get their fancy automobiles and these are physicians talking. It is a moral crisis. This will not be solved by passing a law. Right now, the law should be involved and we certainly ought to defund all of this type of money that goes to the destruction of life. Respect for all life is what we need if we want to live in a free society. We cannot have respect for liberty if we don’t have respect for life.

I want to thank everybody for tuning in today to the Liberty Report and come back soon.

Something So Dangerous It Is Sure To Spark A Revolution That Will Change The Future Forever (VIDEO)

dont tread on me

So how close are we really to martial law and FEMA camps? Do I begin with the fact that out government is secretly preparing for all hell to break loose and doing massive military drills across the nation? Or do I begin with the fact that the US is agreeing to the UN Arms Treaty putting major limitations on our guns? Or do I start with the fact that  our government has documentation creating FEMA camps? Or the fact that they issued a bulletin attacking patriots? Or? Or? Or? The list is almost endless! All I know is something huge is coming our way many of us can feel it…

I URGE you to watch the video below in its entirety! It covers all the above and more and uses factually documentation to back up the claim. It is a real eye-opener to everything that is transpiring around us, but I must warn you, it just might enrage you when you see whats really going on…

“Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the President’s persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat…the President’s taste for unilateral action to circumvent Congress should concern every citizen, regardless of party or ideology.” Senator Ted Cruz in The Wall Street Journal

Americans will soon have little recourse against a government bent on controlling every aspect of their lives, and the way our country is headed freedom will be on the endangered species list.

With the passage of the NDAA our government is operating with impunity, overriding Posse Comitatus, and allowing the military unchecked power to arrest, detain, interrogate and even assassinate its patriots. Including detaining them indefinitely without cause. We are losing our freedoms by the minute and have arrived at a critical breaking point. America is unrecognizable in this state and we have hit the nightmare scenario.

I assure you that one day soon we will experience persecution on a much broader scale. It’s not a question of if, but a question of when. Executive orders have been signed by our President, labor camps have been setup, our government has stockpiled guns and ammo, and Christians, patriots, homeschoolers, gun owners, and veterans have been placed on terrorist watch lists. The Bible even foretells of people being rounded up to FEMA camps…

“They will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.” Luke 21:12

Furthermore a document was leaked back in February 2010, called FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations, in this manual it outlines the full blown concept of re-education centers (Read the Document  Here).

The “Psychological Operations Officers” are the ones responsible for re-educating the masses. According  to the document, “the PSYOP… are designed to pacify and acclimate detainees to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations.”

The following roles have been assigned to this PSYOP team (According to Chapter 3 of the Document pg.56):

1. Identify malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.

2. Develops and execute indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.

3. Identifies political activists.

4. Help the military police commander control detainee and populations during emergencies.

5. Plans and executes a PSYOP program that produces an understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.

This document is not talking about military personal or those detained in war. It specifically targets people “within the U.S. territory. “

Also if you haven’t heard already Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia predicted that the court will soon authorize the use of internment camps just like they did during World War II.

Scalia told the University of Hawaii law school while discussing Korematsu v. United States (the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps), “You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.”

But that’s not all! How about these shocking quotes from the Joint FBI and DHS bulletin talked about in the video above:

“Domestic extremism, however, remains a persistent threat, and the United States has experienced violent ideologically motivated criminal acts, both prior to and after the Oklahoma City attack…. Many of the same motivations used by domestic extremists to justify their criminal acts in the mid-1990s—anti-government and anti-law enforcement sentiment; racial, ethnic, and religious hatred; and advocacy of violent conspiracy theories—continue to influence domestic extremists and their targeting choices in 2015.” (page 2)

“FBI and DHS assess with high confidence that domestic extremism will remain a persistent threat through the end of 2015 and beyond.” (Page 5)

So what is FBI’s and DHS’s definition of a domestic extremist, militia extremists, and Sovereign Citizen Extremists? Here are the answers:

“Domestic Extremists: individuals present in the United States who seek to further political or social goals, wholly or in part, through unlawful acts of force or violence. The mere advocacy of political or social positions, political activism, use of strong rhetoric, or generalized philosophic embrace of violent tactics may not constitute extremism, and may be constitutionally protected. This definition does not include or describe homegrown violent extremists, who are defined by the FBI as al-Qa’ida-inspired individuals based in the United States and radicalized primarily in the United States, and are not directly collaborating with a foreign terrorist organization.” (pg.6)

“Militia Extremists: individuals who seek, wholly or in part, to engage in unlawful acts of force or violence in response to perceived abuses of power or authority by government, perceived threats to Constitutional rights by government, or bureaucratic incompetence in attending to critical tasks. The mere advocacy of political or social positions, political activism, use of strong rhetoric, or generalized philosophic embrace of violent tactics may not constitute extremism, and may be constitutionally protected.” (pg.6)

“Sovereign Citizen Extremists: individuals who openly reject their US citizenship status, believe that most forms of established government, authority, and institutions are illegitimate, and seek, wholly or in part, through unlawful acts of force or violence, to further their claim to be immune from government authority. The mere advocacy of political or social positions, political activism, use of strong rhetoric, or generalized philosophic embrace of violent tactics may not constitute extremism, and may be constitutionally protected.” (pg.6)

The fact of the matter is, we have truly come down to the wire, please be ready!! Time is not something we have much left of…

China 21: Anglo-American “Sustainability” In Asia (VIDEO)

In the not-too-distant past, Sutton was counted among the more respected historians in higher education, holding the title of research fellow at the esteemed Hoover Institute at Stanford University. Before being jettisoned from this coveted position by the Trilateral-affiliated dean, Sutton was (and remains) one of the most thorough academic researchers on the machinations of the Anglo-American Establishment to date. His work was so well-documented that, despite being antagonistic towards Sutton’s worldview, even Rhodesian globalist Zbignew Brzezinski cited the accuracy of his research in his book, Between Two Ages.

Antony Sutton, circa 1984

Antony Sutton, circa 1984

Of the erudite body of work produced by Antony Sutton, he remains best known for his books on banking, industrial, corporate, and military aid to Nazi Germany and the USSR by American companies. The most widely read of these volumes, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler and Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, hold that a secret cabal of Anglo-American forces have been integral in the creation and support of every “East vs. West” dialectic of the past century. Quite a thesis, with a slew of primary documentation and the pedigree to back it up.

Needless to say, Sutton had to go.

His removal from the hallowed and controlled halls of Academia didn’t stop him, though, as he continued to publish research on Deep Politics related to the Trilateral Commission and Skull and Bones, among other things. Unfortunately, as seems to be a tendency among great researchers speaking truth to power, Sutton passed too early back in 2002, and since, his investigation into the international Anglophile cabal has remained largely unadvanced. Until recently, there was no “Great Eastern Superpower” to warrant such research, as the bulk of occulted geopolitical study was focused instead on the “War on Terror” paradigm; in a post-2008 world in which the media, both alternative and otherwise, have readily forecast rise of the BRICS “anti-hegemon,” (as they’re called by some) this has all changed.

Gold And Silver – The US Dollar Does Not Exist, Part II

dollar puzzle
By: Edge Trader Plus |

Truth does not exist in the world of politics.

It is reasons such as these, below, that drives the importance of owning and holding physical silver and gold.  The fundamental reasons everyone already knows exists but do not apply are important, but the power of the elites to rule over all [at least Western] governments, write the laws, deceive everyone, and now with the evidence of how much influence the bankers can exert over the manipulation of PM prices, is why you need to protect yourself from the evil nature of their control.

The elites want to destroy your belief in the value of owning golf and silver, and they have reenforcing price down despite the overwhelming demand for both.  That should embolden your resolve even more.  For how much longer this can go on, no one knows.  What you can know with a great amount of certainty is that Newton’s 3rd Law of Physics will kick in: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

This assures you that the distorted action to the downside will reward the faithful with an equally distorted reaction in the opposite direction.  It is a matter of time.

All the perplexities, confusions, and distresses in America arise not from the Constitution or confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, as much from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation.” –John Adams, 2nd President of the United States

Section 16 of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 at 38 Stat., 265, will not be found doing a simple search.  What the federal corporate government does, over time, is make changes, often changing words ass “surplus,” which actually hides what the government does not want you to see or know.   A search will send you to Title 12 section 411, and even that has been “cleansed” of a damning admission, a similar but different story for another time.

What one must learn is that the government uses terms for words that most take as used in everyday life.  When a word is used as a term, its definition is clearly explained, and the term definition will not be what is understood as every day usage.  A bit off topic, but it illustrates how important words and spelling are used by the federal government.

“Person” is a TERM and is a word of art and does not pertain to Man. Man is never referenced in any tax code; only “person” who is a Man that has taken on the artificial character of a legal entity subject to the tax. That Man is an artificial person and to define him as such they use the term of art “natural person” to separate him from a paper corporation such as IBM who could never be a “natural person”, just a “person” as defined in the 7701(a) definition. So, now the man who is not a taxpayer, in the sense we know, actually makes the IRS presumption stick when declaring he is a “natural person.” Remember, in law, and nowhere else, the word “person” means a legal entity of artificial character. So you state you are a “natural” artificial (person) compared to a fictional corporation (person).”  The Informer.

Back to 38 Stat, 265, which states:  [Pat attention to what is capitalized for all references to the Federal Reserve and notes/Notes.]

NOTE ISSUES

” SEC 16. Federal reserve notes, [observe: small “r” reserve, small ‘n”note] to be issued at the discretion of the Federal Reserve Board for the purpose of making advances to Federal reserve banks through the Federal reserve agents as hereinafter set forth, and for no other purposeare hereby authorized, [emphasis added].  The said notes shall be obligations of the United States and shall be receivable by all national and member banks and for all taxes, customs, and other public dues.  They shall be redeemed in gold on demand at the Treasury Department of the United States, in the city of Washington, District of Columbia, or in gold or lawful money at any Federal reserve bank.”

Pay close attention to what is authorized: Federal reserve notes of the small “r” in reserve and small “n” in notes.  Further, they are to be issued at the discretion of the Federal Reserve Board, NOT by Congress or any banking institution.  The notes are issued for one purpose only, making advances to Federal reserve banks…and for no other purpose.”

These notes were NOT issued for general public circulation, and the only notes authorized were Federal reserve notes.

It was in 1933 when Federal Reserve notes were first made legal tender.  Now you see Reserve has a capital “R” as distinguished from the 1913 Act that authorized Federal reserve notes, small “r.”

From the 73rd session of Congress, June 5, 6, 1933, [HJR -192]:

“All coins and currencies of the United States [including Federal Reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal Reserve banks and national banking associations] heretofore or hereafter coined or issued, shall be legal tender for all debts, public and private, public charges, taxes, duties, and dues, except that gold coins, when below the standard weight and limit of tolerance provided by law for the single piece, shall be legal tender only at valuation in proportion to their actual weight.”

The above comes from a Resolution to amend a statute known as the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933.  Interestingly, in BUTLER V U S, 296 US 1, [1936], the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933 was declared unconstitutional and void.

Prior to the Act of 1933, there was no such “legal tender status” for Federal Reserve notes of the “R” type.  The deception is more apparent when you consider that coins minted by the US were already lawful money, via the Coinage Act of 1792, so there was no need to confer the unnecessary “legal tender” status upon them.

Here is where the deception is less clear.  HJR-192 [House Joint Resolution] included the statement that Federal Reserve notes shall be legal tender for all debts public and private…”  If you look at any fiat Federal Reserve Note, [FRN], you will see those same words included on the face of the fiat.  That wording comes from a Resolution that has already been declared unconstitutional and void, so where is there any authorization for any of the fiat FRNs in circulation, today?

In 1982, Congress re-codified 31 USC 5103 to redefine what is legal tender of the US:

Ҥ5103. Legal tender

“United States coins and currency (including Federal reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal reserve banks and national banks) are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues. Foreign gold or silver coins are not legal tender for debts.”

Source: Article on FRNs by Clarity

If you click on the link for Title 31, above, you will see “Historical Revisions And Notes” as examples of how lawmakers make words disappear and often change the meaning of the current, altered Title.

What Tile 31, section 5103 does is re-establish Federal reserve notes, the ones not issued in general circulation, as the only authorized form of legal tender in the US, current.  That means any other form of “notes” or even “Notes” issued by the US are unauthorized, or, in a word, fraud.  There is no lawful, not even legal, authorization for those FEDERAL RESERVES NOTES in circulation, none, zip.

Has anyone from the private corporation Federal Reserve or corporate federal government ever informed the public of this fraud?  Of course not!  Neither will ever admit to the largest Ponzi scheme ever devised by the elite’s banking cartel.  They do not care that you do not know.  They do not even care if you DO know.

ALL Federal Reserve Notes in circulation are commercial debt instruments.  We have already covered the fact that they are NOT money.  [See previous article, MONEY DOES NOT EXIST, paragraphs 7 and 8.]

Here is another deception found in HJR-192:

“Whereas the existing emergency has disclosed that provisions of obligations which purport to give the obligee a right to require payment in gold or a particular kind of coin or currency of the United States, or in an amount of money of the United States measured thereby, obstruct the power of Congress to regulate the value of the money of the United States, and are inconsistent with the declared policy of the Congress to maintain at all times the equal power of every dollar, coined or issued by the United States, in the markets and in the payment of debts.”

Article 1, section 8 of the Constitution says, in pertinent part: Congress shall have the power:

“To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;”

Why has HJR-192 clearly misstated what the Constitution explicitly provides?  Nowhere does that sentence in section 8 say Congress has the power to regulate money.  It says, “To coin money, regulate the value thereof…”

What people fail to understand about the non-existent Constitution they claim to value and protect is, Congress only had the power to coin money, and regulate the value thereof.  The only money that is current as the money of account of the United States, to this day, are coins of gold and silver, as expressed on dollars, [Coinage Act of 1792, section 20].  In order to regulate the value thereof, it meant Congress had to ensure the coins were of the specified weight, and nothing else.

Where does it say Congress will at all times maintain at all times the equal power of every dollar, coined or issued by the United States.  Utter nonsense!  That means the value of a $5 gold piece, issued by the United States, should equal the “value” of a [worthless] fiat $5 Federal Reserve Note.

What was written in HJR-192 was written by the elites in control of the government and fully written to deceive a public willing to be deceived, to this day.  ALL, repeat, ALL FRNs are a worthless scrip issued by a private international banking cartel.

We bring this to no pointed conclusion because few, if anyone, will change their habits and or beliefs about using imaginary money, despite the fraud.  Too inconvenient.

Without natural predators, the stupid are far outnumbering the more intelligent, not just here, but in every country.

We had a now resolved issue not being able to receive e-mails since 18 July.  If anyone sent an e-mail that was returned, it is okay to now resend.  Apologies.  mn

Despite another so-called “smash down” of gold and silver, having an awareness of the direction of the trend, as we have been advocating for the past few years, one cannot be surprised by the drop as much as one can be verily surprised by the extent to which the central bankers have had such a relentless stranglehold on gold and silver, and it appears that they have not yet finished playing their manipulated hand.

All anyone can do is to stay with common sense and not be led astray in their thinking by the uncommon willingness of those in control to go to whatever extremes necessary to ultimately fail in their perverted agenda of trying to save an unsaveable, worthless fiat.

While not apparent on the weekly, the daily chart does show a degree of short covering, especially on Thursday and Friday, even Monday’s wide range slam lower. To alleviate one’s anxiety level, do not expect a quick recovery.  We are inclined to say even until the end of the year, but that would presume we know something no one can know.  All anyone can do is let the market, and the central bankers, run their course.  Gold will not turn around a day sooner than the day it does make a turn, and even after that day, it will require more time to confirm a bottom is in place.

GC-D-25-Juyl-15

Many people have little patience with simple aphorisms, like respecting the trend as the most important piece of market information one can have, for it puts price direction into a context that can prevent undue losses by not going against the trend.  We have made this point several times, and one should never take it as a trite expression.

For those wanting to be on the long side of the paper market, the trend has been very trying of one’s patience, granted.  From all appearances, expect more of the same.

SI-W-25-Jul-15

Can silver still go lower?  Yes, it can.  The probability of lower prices remains higher than not going lower.  We keep repeating to trust your eyes in what you see in the charts and to not listen to the hype about silver being ready for a huge upside breakout.  It is a well intended sentiment by some, and a wanting to be first to call a bottom by many others, but the net effect is very misleading to the obvious and unfair to those who may believe the hype.

We have no qualms about buying physical gold and silver, at any price, and especially at these exaggerated lower price levels.  Once a bottom is formed, given the negative character of how price has been so severely repressed against an historic and unabated demand for the physical, it may become incredibly difficult to buy physical as price starts to turn, whenever it does, and what may be available will be at prices much higher than now.

Stay away from being long anything in paper.  Be patient.  You have no other choice. The central bankers have more than made their case about keeping price suppressed.

MTV Ramps Up Race-Baiting, Targeting White People (VIDEOS)

“Microaggressions”: If you like black culture you’re racist; If you don’t like black culture you’re also racist.

MTV is continuing its crusade to mainstream tumblr/social justice warrior insanity with a new video that targets white people for “racial microaggressions” directed against people of color – awful things such as… saying you like black culture.

These so-called “racial microaggressions,” which are also being circulated at major Universities throughout the country, include the following according to MTV (when applied in reverse to people of color);

– Saying black people are good at sports;

– Saying black people are good at dancing;

– Asking where someone is from;

– Complimenting someone on their English;

– Complimenting black people on their hair;

– Saying a person of color looks like someone else;

– Saying a person of color is “pretty”;

– Saying that you like black culture.

So if you say you like black culture you’re a racist. And if you DON’T like black culture you’re also a racist. Thanks for clearing this up, MTV.

I’m wondering if the fact that black people are responsible for 50% of homicides in the US despite making up only 13% of the population counts as a “microaggression” too?

This video is of course part of MTV’s descent into social justice warrior cult of victimhood insanity, where “white people” are to blame for all of America’s ills.

Earlier this month we also highlighted MTV’s new documentary White People – produced by an illegal immigrant – which shows young white Americans crying on camera over their “white privilege”. The film also publicly shames whites for “what they’ve done in America”.

Numerous people in the comments below the “microaggressions” video completely ripped the entire premise of the clip apart.

“This is f**king dumb. I’m Cuban, and when people find out they frequently are surprised “but you look so white, how can you be Cuban?” wrote Adam Tarnoff. “It’s not a microaggression, I don’t cry to tumblr about my made up first world problems. This is tumblrisms being made mainstream.”

For those who don’t know, tumblr is a repository for all whiny social justice warrior liberals who are offended by anything and claim special snowflake victim status for literally everything conceivable.

“I’m Hispanic and I am so f**king sick of all this anti-White bulls**t,” wrote another commenter. “I, as a Hispanic, have faced more stereotypes and racism (and I mean ACTUAL racism) from Blacks, Asians, and other Hispanics than I have from White people. As a matter of fact, White people are more respectful than other “people of color” when it comes to race.”

“Hey white people even if you’re being nice and you’re not racist, you’re still an asshole and you’re still racist,” quipped another respondent.

The irony of the video is that it’s foundation is the notion that “microaggressions,” which in reality is just a racially souped up name for “stereotypes,” cannot be used against white people, when in fact the video itself illustrates a number of stereotypes that could be applied to white people.

In fact, there are innumerable stereotypes or “microaggressions” that are directed towards white people all the time – from the way they dress to the way they talk. Indeed, the hashtag #WhitePeople was trending on Twitter only last night. The hashtag #WhitePeopleProblems also occasionally trends on Twitter.

As highlighted in the video below, millions of Americans are apparently committing these “microaggressions” on a daily basis with no idea of what the word “microaggression” even means.

“Everyone is super racist, sexist and prejudice even though they think they aren’t and you have no proof that says otherwise. As a matter of fact, no proof is even better than proof… because it’s already like proof anyhow. So shut up and don’t express a different opinion than mine,” writes Steven Crowder.

According to the University of Wisconsin (Stevens Point), all of the following traits are also examples of racial microaggressions;

– Asking someone where they are from or where they were born.

– Telling someone they speak good English.

– Telling someone that you have several black friends.

– Saying that you’re not a racist.

– Complimenting an Asian person by telling them they are very articulate.

– Asking an Asian person for help with science or math.

– Uttering the phrase “There is only one race, the human race.”

– Saying that you think America is a melting pot and that when you look at someone you don’t see race.

– Believing that the most qualified person, regardless of race, should get the job.

– Thinking that every person, regardless of race, can succeed in society if they work hard enough.

– Telling a black person who is being too loud to be quiet.

– Telling an Asian or Latino person who is too quiet to speak up.

– Mistaking a person of color for a staff member when you’re in a store.

– Calling something “gay”.

– Doing an impression of someone’s dialect or accent.

Basically, if you’re nice to people of color or if you innocently ask a question meant with the best of intentions that causes offense, you’re a racist. And don’t try and deny that you’re a racist because that only proves that you are a racist.

A Higher Level Of Freedom: The Benefit Of Cannabis To Health

frabz-Freedom-doesnt-Exist-along-as-Nature-is-Illegal-Cannabis-produce-17191f

“If the words “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” don’t include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn’t worth the hemp it was written on.” – Terence McKenna

While this article is not focused on the recreational use of cannabis, Terence McKenna’s quote speaks directly to a sacred right, increasingly being legislated against in our society, namely, the ability to choose and use substances that grow freely on this Earth as our medicine.

In a day and age where possession of an herb like cannabis is an offense punishable by incarceration, it is important for us to reflect on how we arrived at this dark point in time.

Herbs, after all, were put here by God. If you prefer the word Nature, the point is the same, and it was put best by Bob Marley when he said: “you can’t tell God it [cannabis] is illegal.”

And yet authorities are telling God, and you and me, that is is illegal, despite a growing body of scientific evidence that it has profound potential as a medicine. Does this not in some way call into question the very legitimacy and authority of those who would lay claim to the right to decide what a human can or can not use a natural substance to improve their health, or enliven their spirit? As long as no harm is being done to others in the act of choosing what is best for oneself, who can rightfully take issue with the freedom to choose one’s own “medicine”?

Were it not for the fact that the human body is hard-wired to respond to cannabis through the endocannabinoid system (ES), claims for its medicinal value would have much less weight. The ES, in fact, encompasses a wide range of physiological processes, including appetite, pain sensation, mood and memory. So fundamental are these processes to what motivates and defines human behavior, it is no wonder that a plant with the power to directly affect these functions would be the subject of such profound controversy, as well as brutal, socioeconomic and politically-mediated criminalization.

Indeed, the endocannabinoid system mediates the psychoactive effects of cannabis associated with its “highs” and sometimes “lows.” Any plant with the power to alleviate pain or illness and which grows freely in the wild represents a significant threat to a conventional medical establishment whose monopoly is founded on the coining of medicines from patented and proprietary chemicals.

Cannabis, however, is not a Johnny-come-lately to the fierce debate over whether traditional herbal medicines have proven safety and efficacy within the “evidence-based” model of medicine. In fact, few plants can lay claim to as much scientific, and particularly human clinical data supporting its right to exist alongside other prescribed medicines as a viable treatment option. Indeed, the GreenMedInfo.com project has uncovered 129 distinct disease categories that may benefit from this remarkable plant thus far, and new studies are being added on a weekly basis.

Given the glut of research establishing the likelihood of a legitimate medicinal role for the plant in human disease prevention and treatment, the tides are beginning to turn against the miseducation of the public about this valuable herb. The fate of the practice of traditional herbalism itself, and our health freedom as a whole, hinges, in many respects, on whether the pharmaceutically-driven medical establishment, and the drug conviction-dependent privatized-prison industrial complex succeeds in maintaining the media-articulated stranglehold on mainstream opinion. We hope the positive cannabis science will arm those advocating for health freedom with the truth, and ask that you distribute it widely to those who are receptive to rational, science-based discourse on this herb’s benefits.

Possessing and using any herb, but especially one that has such a high level of safety, should be the choice of that free adult, and not grounds for the termination of their constitutional and human rights associated with arrest and imprisonment, which in this day and age is equivalent to enslavement and torture.

Commodities Collapsed Just Before The Last Stock Market Crash – So Guess What Is Happening Right Now?

Grid-Stock-Exchange-Economy-Finance-Public-Domain-460x325

If we were going to see a stock market crash in the United States in the fall of 2015 (to use a hypothetical example), we would expect to see commodity prices begin to crash a few months ahead of time.  This is precisely what happened just before the great financial crisis of 2008, and we are watching the exact same thing happen again right now.  On Wednesday, commodities got absolutely pummeled, and at this point the Bloomberg Commodity Index is down a whopping 26 percent over the past twelve months.  When global economic activity slows down, demand for raw materials sinks and prices drop.  So important global commodities such as copper, iron ore, aluminum, zinc, nickel, lead, tin and lumber are all considered to be key “leading indicators” that can tell us a lot about where things are heading next.  And what they are telling us right now is that we are rapidly approaching a global economic meltdown.

If the global economy was actually healthy and expanding, the demand for commodities would be increasing and that would tend to drive prices up.  But instead, prices continue to go down.

The Bloomberg Commodity Index just hit a brand new 13-year low.  That means that global commodity prices are already lower than they were during the worst moments of the last financial crisis

The commodities rout that’s pushed prices to a 13-year low pulled some of the biggest mining and energy companies below levels seen during the financial crisis.

The FTSE 350 Mining Index plunged as much as 4.9 percent to the lowest since 2009 on Wednesday, with BHP Billiton Ltd. and Anglo American Plc leading declines. Gold and copper are near the lowest in at least five years, while crude oil retreated to $50 a barrel.

This commodity bear market is like a train wreck in slow motion,” said Andy Pfaff, the chief investment officer for commodities at MitonOptimal in Cape Town. “It has a lot of momentum and doesn’t come to a sudden stop.”

Commodity prices have not been this low since April 2002.  According to Bloomberg, some of the commodities being hit the hardest include soybean oil, copper, zinc and gasoline.  And this commodity crash is already having a dramatic impact on some of the biggest commodity-producing nations on the globe.  Just consider what Gerald Celente recently told Eric King

We now see that the Australian dollar is at a six-year low against the U.S. dollar. What are Australia’s biggest exports? How about iron-ore and other metals.

If we look at Canada, their currency is also now at a six-year low vs the U.S. dollar. Well, Canada is a big oil exporter, particularly some tar sands oil, which is expensive to produce.

We also now have the Brazilian real at a 10-year low vs the U.S. dollar. Why? Because it’s a natural resource rich country and they don’t have a strong market to sell their natural resources to.

Meanwhile, the Indian rupee is at a 17-year low vs the U.S. dollar. This is because manufacturing is slowing down and there is less development. If the Americans aren’t buying, the Indians, the Chinese, the Vietnamese — they’re not making things.

All of this is so, so similar to what we experienced in the run up to the financial crisis of 2008.  Just a couple of days ago, I talked about how the U.S. dollar got really strong just prior to the last stock market crash.  The same patterns keep playing out over and over, and yet most in the mainstream media refuse to see what is happening.

Something else that happened just a few months before the last stock market crash was a collapse of the junk bond market.

Guess what?

That is starting to happen again too.  Just check out this chart.

I know that I must sound like a broken record.  But I think that it is extremely important to document these things.  When the next financial collapse takes place, virtually everyone in the mainstream media will be talking about what a “surprise” it is.

But for those that have been paying attention, it won’t be much of a “surprise” at all.

When the stock market does crash, how far might it fall?

During a recent appearance on CNBC, Marc Faber suggested that it could decline by up to 40 percent

The U.S. stock market could “easily” drop 20 percent to 40 percent, closely followed contrarian Marc Faber said Wednesday—citing a host of factors including the growing list of companies trading below their 200-day moving average.

In recent days, “there were [also] more declining than advancing stocks, and the list of 12-month new lows was very high on Friday,” the publisher of The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

“It shows you a lot of stocks are already declining.”

Others, including myself, believe that what we are going to experience is going to be even worse than that.

We live in such a fast-paced world, and most of us don’t have the patience to wait for long-term trends to play out.

If the stock market is not crashing today, to most people that means that everything must be fine.

But once it has crashed, everyone is going to be complaining that they weren’t warned in advance about what was coming and everyone will be complaining that nobody ever fixed the things that caused the exact same problems the last time around.

Personally, I am trying very hard to make sure that nobody can accuse me of not sounding the alarm about the storm that is on the horizon.

The world has never been in more debt, our “too big to fail” banks have never been more reckless, and global financial markets have never been more primed for a collapse.

Amazingly, there are still a lot of “experts” out there that insist that everything is going to be okay somehow.

Of course many of those exact same “experts” were telling us the same thing just before the stock market crashed in 2008 too.

A great financial shaking has already begun around the world, and it will hit U.S. financial markets very soon.

I hope that you are getting ready while you still can.

Mandatory Vaccinations Afoot: Medical Fascism Approaching Fast

The gun now backs the syringe: California’s 2 bills (SB277 and SB792) require mandatory vaccinations for children and adults, in total opposition to America’s foundation of individual rights and freedom. The Government believes it owns your body. Will you let it?

The gun now backs the syringe: California’s 2 bills (SB277 and SB792) require mandatory vaccinations for children and adults, in total opposition to America’s foundation of individual rights and freedom. The Government believes it owns your body. Will you let it?

Mandatory vaccinations are afoot as California has just achieved the horrific distinction of becoming the first state in the US to introduce compulsory vaccinations for both children and adults (bills SB277 and SB792 respectively). This goes to show that the NWO (New World Order) agenda of collectivism and medical fascism is fast approaching. There is no more time to sit on the fence, debate things intellectually or hide behind the excuse that certain agendas and events are just unprovable conspiracies. Suddenly it’s getting pretty real. By introducing mandatory vaccinations, the Government is essentially claiming it owns your body, it knows best when it comes to medicine and health, that the science behind vaccines is settled, and that it has the right to violate you if it deems in doing do that it’s “protecting the greater good”. How many people out there still consider that the Government forcibly injecting you with at least 10 toxic and carcinogenic vaccine adjuvants (such as mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, diploid cells from aborted fetal tissue, MSG, etc.) is not a violation?

Australia and Other Nations Also on Road to Mandatory Vaccinations

The Rockefeller Medicine-Big Pharma-NWO push towards mandatory vaccinations is unfortunately not limited to the USA. It’s worldwide. In April I wrote about how Australia, sadly, was following lockstep in the footprints of the US and becoming GMO and Vaccine Australia. In attempting to boost the immunization rate, the Australian Government removed religious exemptions for vaccines, bribed (“incentivized”) doctors to inject more of their patients and financially punished people by tightening up welfare eligibility for parents who fail to vaccinate their children. Other nations that already have mandatory vaccination laws (either at a state or federal level) include Malaysia, Latvia, Slovenia and Croatia.

WHO Can Order Mandatory Vaccinations in All 194 Signatory Nations

To those who have been following the unfolding of the New World Order, it is also unsurprising that the WHO (World Health Organization), another subsidiary of the Rockefeller-created UN (United Nations), has laws on its books to be able to declare mandatory vaccinations in all its 194 signatory states. As Jane Burgermeister reports:

“The International Health Regulations (IHR) pursuant to Article 21 of the Constitution of WHO came into force in June 2007 and allow the General-Director of WHO to declare an international health emergency. In such a case, the Director-General can impose regulations, including “sanitary and quarantine requirements and other procedures designed to prevent the international spread of disease”, also travel restrictions. 

In the event of WHO declaring a pandemie, WHO has the authority to order forced vaccinations around the world.

All 194 signatory countries to IHR must comply.”

Funny how all these organizations like the UN, WHO and the US Government have “Generals” like a Director-General, Surgeon-General or a Secretary-General. Maybe it’s because they’re actually corporate and military organizations in disguise – with the intent and possibly the partial ability to force things like mandatory vaccinations on the population.

Airplane Companies Discussing Mandatory Vaccinations Too

It seems the medical fascism is not limited to the ground. There were reports in February 2015 of airline companies considering the possibility of introducing mandatory vaccinations also. Thankfully nothing has transpired from this … yet. However the mere fact that airlines were even toying with the idea of forcing people to get vaccinated in order to board a plane is very ominous. We are facing the very real possibility that, if we do not submit and bow down to Big Pharma, with all its bribery, undue political influence, fraudulent marketing, falsification of data and junk science, we will lose our rights and freedoms, or the ability to live a “normal” life in this day and age, which includes things like air travel.

Idea of Mandatory Vaccinations Based on Pseudoscientific Myth of Herd Immunity

The main excuse and justification rolled out by Government, Big Pharma, the Western medical establishment and other pro-vaxxers for a national or global scheme like mandatory vaccinations is herd immunity. Behind that is the idea of collectivism or “for the greater good”. As I discussed in the article “Herd Immunity vs. Viral Shedding: Who’s Infecting Whom?“, herd immunity is a pseudoscientific myth. For starters, vaccine-induced immunity is not equivalent to real naturally-acquired immunity. Logic dictates that if vaccines really worked, the vaccinated would have no need to worry about a disease supposedly being spread by the unvaccinated, because the vaccinated would be protected. The very fact that they are worrying shows that there is serious doubt over the efficacy of vaccines.

Mandatory Vaccinations = Medical Fascism and Collectivism

Even if vaccines were 100% effective on everyone all of the time – which is very very far from the truth – mandatory vaccinations are still a horribly tyrannical manifestation of collectivism, the notion that all individuals must sacrifice their rights, desires and freedom for the greater good. Of course, the greater good is always defined by the State, or the small group of usually power-hungry individuals who have gained control of the helm of Government. The Government is now trying to claim it has the legal right to do what it wants with your body, including injecting full of poisons disguised as “medicine”, for whatever noble-sounding pretext it comes up with.

We have entered a dangerous chapter in the evolution of our society; we can only hope enough individuals recognize the inherent tyranny of mandatory vaccinations and rise up against them. Even people like Dr. Ron Paul, who as a Western medical doctor is actually in favor of vaccines, spoke out against the idea of compulsory vaccinations on the grounds of libertarianism and individual rights, which just goes to show that you don’t have to be against vaccines to believe in basic liberty.

Of course, whether people will comply with such oppression as mandatory vaccinations remains to be seen …

Living Life The Old Fashioned Way

oldfashioned

There is a tendency in all of us to compare the old to the new.  This is especially true in the preparedness community where in anticipation of hard times ahead, we look to our parents and grandparents for ideas for living a self-reliant and sustainable life.

I have been thinking about that a lot lately; even to the extent that I have considered sewing up some long skirts and pioneer-style aprons that will hold up to a week or two of wear without laundering.  Seriously.

Anyway, the following piece has been circulating the web for awhile.  I thought it was worth bringing back since it describes a not-so-long ago time when the term “green” referred to the color of your grass or the money in your pocket (green stuff).

As I was reading this, it occurred to me that many of these old fangled ways of doing things fall right in line with what each of us would be required to do in a crisis or emergency with limited sources of power, few goods available on the shelves, and a cost of living so high that there was little left for discretionary spending.

Perhaps it is time to redefine “green” in old-fashioned terms.

The Old-fashioned, Old Fogey Rules of Sustainability

In the line at the store, the cashier told the older woman that she should bring her own grocery bag because plastic bags weren’t good for the environment. The woman apologized to him and explained, “We didn’t have the green thing back in my day.”

The clerk responded, “That’s our problem today. The former generation did not care enough to save our environment.”

He was right, that generation didn’t have the green thing in its day. Back then, they returned their milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled.

But they didn’t have the green thing back in that customer’s day. In her day, they walked up stairs, because they didn’t have an escalator in every store and office building. They walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time they had to go two blocks.

But she was right. They didn’t have the green thing in her day.

Back then, they washed the baby’s diapers because they didn’t have the throw-away kind. They dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts – wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that old lady is right; they didn’t have the green thing back in her day.

Back then, they had one TV, or radio, in the house – not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief, not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, they blended and stirred by hand because they didn’t have electric machines to do everything for them.

In summer, they slept with the windows open, perhaps even out on sleeping porches, because most homes and apartments lacked air conditioning. Some people still live in those archeological relics in most cities today.  When they packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, they used a wadded up old newspaper to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap.

Back then, they didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. They used a push mower that ran on human power. They exercised by working so they didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.  But she’s right; they didn’t have the green thing back then.

They drank from a fountain when they were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time they had a drink of water. They refilled their writing pens with ink  instead of buying a new pen, and they replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But they didn’t have the green thing back then.

Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or rode the school bus instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. They had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And they didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint.

But isn’t it sad the current generation laments how wasteful the old folks were just because they didn’t have the green thing back then?

The Final Word

Forbidden History The Ultimate Taboo

Mayer_Amschel_Rothschild_NWO

People are dumb because they do not know and refuse to learn the real history behind world events. Educational institutions do not function as seekers of truth, but as gatekeepers for narratives that defy common sense and defame historical facts. Society fosters the ultimate taboo against chronicles that differ with the established story of distortions and misdirection. Anyone who dares waver from accepted limits and suppositions immediately is a quack or an extremist. The dreaded label of being a conspiracy theorist, used to smear and marginalize researchers and pundits, is the height of anti-intellectualism and characterassassination.

The dim-witted public, told to shun contradictory accounts, interpretations and disturbing explanations accepts sham history. The accurate course of events must remain hidden from the masses. The subject of a New World Order is not newfound. The process of world domination is as old as the formation of the first empire. Despite the annals of war and governments, the actual power that enslaves civilizations and humanity, is evil itself, in its purist form and manifestation.

ADLbrand_jpg_w300h169The entire globe, engulfed in a prison of authoritarian control, already pays the price of scholarly surrender. Use whatever term or description you like or accept. The definitive fact is that the moneychangers operate and pull the institutional levers that keep locks on your mind and pocketbook, while keeping your vision focused on a make-believe reality.

In order to break the blockade that stifles all those Edith Bunker brain surgeons, especially in academia, grow a set of gonads and reach deep down inside for that which is left of your moral courage. Examine the following detailed summary of events. Elites and enemies of Western Civilization want to dumb you down. It takes unembellished chutzpah to come to terms with truthful history.

A prolonged visit and extensive review of the all the material covered in this thorough and comprehensive assessment could be a liberating opportunity to regain sight and end the blindness of the NWO mind control. Mike King presents an Alternative History, Philosophy and Current Events account on the tomatobubble.com site. A sample of this information follows:

gtomatobnnrNWO FORBIDDEN HISTORY: TIMELINE OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER1763-1816

The Currency Act of 1764 is a British action that imposes a monetary policy on its American colonies. The Act extends the provisions of the Currency Act of 1751 and forbids the American colonies from issuing debt-free paper currency as legal tender.

When the First Continental Congress meets in 1774, it objects to The Currency Act as “subversive of American rights” and calls for its repeal.

It is a little known fact of the American Revolution, that the right of the colonial governments to issue their own debt-free currency, and spend it into circulation (as opposed to a private Central Bank printing and lending its debt-currency into circulation), was one of the main causes of the coming American Revolution.

1820-1880

During the 64 year reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901) Great Britain will experience a transformation from a Constitutional Monarchy to a totally Rothschild owned “democracy”. Three assassination attempts against Victoria during the turbulent 1840’s, further attempts on her in 1872 and 1882, and the many other attempts and murders of European Kings in the coming years, combine to send a clear and intimidating message to the British Monarchy: The Rothschild Family, not the “Royal Family”, rules the British Empire.

The Rothschilds view the American US Civil War as a chance to “divide and conquer” America. If the South can break away from the Union, two rival nations can be played off against each other in a European style game of “balance-of-power.”

Lincoln needs money to fund the war. He is extorted by the New York bankers, who want the government to sell high interest bonds to them, which they can then resell to the banking syndicate in London. Lincoln writes:

“I have the Confederacy before me and the bankers behind me, and for America, I fear the bankers most.”

Lincoln thwarts the bankers by issuing interest-free currency directly from the Treasury. (Greenbacks)

1881-1910

Republican President McKinley is a staunch advocate of “hard money” (Gold Standard) and limited constitutional government. McKinley is re-elected in 1900. Less than one year later, a foreign-born Red terrorist named Leon Czolgosz shoots McKinley in Buffalo, NY. Czolgosz is a follower of the Jewish Red Emma Goldman, who openly praises Czolgosz’s evil deed!

McKinley recovers briefly, and then turns for the worse, finally dying on September 14. His death launches the Globalist puppet Teddy Roosevelt into office, completing TR’s amazing ascent from obscurity to the White House in just two years! The convenient murder of McKinley marks the beginning of “The Progressive Era” in which the Federal government will expand its power and foreign involvement.

1911-1920

After many years of strategic political preparation, the Globalist-Zionist New World Order now has 7 major goals its wants to achieve in coming decade:

1. Establish a US Central Bank conceived at Jekyll Island.

2. Impose an income tax on America so that State debt to the Central Bank can be collateralized with human labor.

3. Trigger the long planned Triple Entente-Triple Alliance World War to destroy Germany and reshape Europe.

4. Entangle the mighty USA in the coming European war and the emerging World Government movement.

5. Finish off Czarist Russia once and for all and convert the Eurasian giant into a Communist nation.

6. Establish a World Political Body under the pretext of “world peace” after the war is over.

7. Carry out Zionist Herzl’s 1897 plan to take Palestine away from the Ottoman Turks & Arabs.

The popular Republican President William Howard Taft will never involve America in such treasonous schemes. So the Globalists recruit a weak professor from Princeton named Woodrow Wilson. Wilson is rocketed to Governor of New Jersey, and then to Democrat nominee for President in 1912. In order to steal Republican votes from Taft, the NWO recruits ex-President Teddy Roosevelt to ran as the Progressive Party candidate (also known as Bull-Moose Party).

1921-1930

Pledging a “return to normalcy”, Warren Harding (R-OH) is elected President in 1920. An opponent of entry into the League of Nations, his victory over James Cox (D-OH) and his VP running mate Franklin D Roosevelt (TR’s cousin), is the largest Presidential Election landslide in America’s history (60%-34%)!

Harding inherits a Wilsonian economic Depression. He quickly moves to slash income taxes, and will cut government spending by 50%. With the private economy now freed from the parasitic dead weight of big government, an historic economic boom soon follows.

Harding’s support for free markets, limited government, low taxes, neutral foreign policy, and his refusal to grant diplomatic recognition to the murderous Soviet Union, are all positions that anger the Globalists. An intense newspaper smear campaign regarding “scandals” in Harding’s administration is then unleashed against the highly popular President.

1931-1939

A prominent Congressman who dares to accuse the Fed is the Chairman of the House Banking Committee: Louis McFadden (R-PA). In a June 10 speech, McFadden puts the blame directly on the international bankers for fomenting the Russian Revolution, crashing the US economy, and robbing the American people. McFadden pulls no punches:

“(The Fed) was deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us for our hospitality by undermining our American institutions. Those bankers took money out of this country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They financed Trotsky’s passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire. …What king ever robbed his subjects to such an extent as the Federal Reserve has robbed us?”

*************

These snippets, mostly tract the American experience. However, the summary of European intrigue and the unending NWO struggle to eradicate Christian governments, as well as the elimination and destruction of divinely created cosmology, has profound cultural, social and political repercussions. Honest searchers of the truth should investigate the full text of this important chronology for further confirmation and read the Invisible Hand, which our esteemed colleague, Al Cronkrite writes with authority.

The great Lysander Spooner utters the immortal maxim:

“The Rothschilds, and that class of money-lenders of whom they are the representatives and agents – men who never think of lending a shilling to their next-door neighbors, for purposes of honest industry, unless upon the most ample security, and at the highest rate of interest – stand ready, at all times, to lend money in unlimited amounts to those robbers and murderers, who call themselves governments, to be expended in shooting down those who do not submit quietly to being robbed and enslaved.”

Such an excellent summary on the way the world really operates. The forbidden history of dead Presidents, Vice Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, Queens and Czars just happened to materialize when their opposition to central banks conflicts with the timetable of the NWO.

Without a clear understanding of the multi-century game of attrition, that pits the forces of compound interest against the suckers that buy into the false storyline fed to them through the illusion of fantasyland tales of distraction – true history will remain taboo for most. So be it, that only brave hearts will comprehend correct reality.

Facebook Owner Takes Public Stand Against Vaccine Refusers

Zuckerberg_meets_Obama
By: Brian Shilhavy, Health Impact News Editor


With medical and health authorities all across the United States beginning to take action to remove freedom of choice in refusing vaccines, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has taken a public position in the current vaccine debate, in what many in the media are reporting to be a direct attack against those who refuse or question vaccines:

Mark Zuckerberg just slammed the anti-vaccination movement – Business Insider

Mark Zuckerberg Is Sending a Message to the Anti-Vaccine Crowd – Yahoo Tech

Zuckerberg takes aim at vaccine deniers through his online book club – The Verge

Amar Toor of the Verge writes:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has selected a decidedly pro-vaccine book for the latest installment of his online book club, following a report last week that pointed to surprisingly low vaccination rates at Silicon Valley daycares affiliated with Google and other tech companies. The book, On Immunity by Eula Bliss, examines and disarms the fear underpinning the anti-vaccine movement, based on Bliss’ personal experience with her young child.

Health Impact News recently published a book review of On Immunity by journalist Jennifer Margulis, which was originally published by The Washington Independent Review of Books, but subsequently removed by what Margulis claims was an act of censorship, because they did not want to hear both sides of the vaccine debate. So for another view of this book Mr. Zuckerberg has chosen to endorse see: How Journalists are Censored from Covering Both Sides of the Vaccine Debate.

Does this Pave the Way for Facebook to Censor Free Speech on Vaccines?

So what’s next for Zuckerberg and Facebook? Since Zuckerberg is apparently taking the position that “the science on vaccines is settled,” will he also take the corresponding position that Americans do not have a right to refuse vaccines, for “the greater good?”

Like technology billionaire and vaccine supporter Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg has enough money and influence to force people to adopt his position. His tax revenue alone provides billions to the U.S. Government and State of California, and he can give away up to half of his income by U.S. law to charitable organizations to avoid paying even more taxes.

This “philanthropy” coming out of Silicon Valley is creating what some are calling a “Brave New Economic Order.” Andrew Gumbel wrote earlier this week:

The trend is national but only in Silicon Valley do companies like Google or Apple have more money than local governments and spend accordingly. Zuckerberg and fiber optic telecommunications entrepreneur David Welch have become players in the education debate — not only because they want to, but because they can. They can outspend school districts and – especially in Welch’s case – outlawyer the teachers unions, which is a dramatic shift from standard democratic practice and perhaps more important than whether or not their cause is just. (Source.)

Zuckerberg is donating millions to schools and hospitals. What’s next? A new pro-vaccine policy for anything published on Facebook for “the greater good?”

Is Anything on Facebook Really Private?While Facebook offers its users “private messaging” or “closed groups” and multiple “privacy” features to supposedly protect your privacy, is anything put on Facebook really private? Facebook has almost 10,000 employees, and their Privacy Policy, which is quite lengthy and subject to change at any time, can be found here. Have you ever taken the time to read it? Here are some quotes regarding their Privacy Policy that you agree to when you use Facebook:

We share information we have about you within the family of companies that are part of Facebook.

If the ownership or control of all or part of our Services or their assets changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner.

We work with third party companies who help us provide and improve our Services or who use advertising or related products, which makes it possible to operate our companies and provide free services to people around the world.

Here are the types of third parties we can share information with about you: (Source.)

I have been telling people for years that nothing you put on Facebook is guaranteed to be private, and that one should never put anything on Facebook that you do not want the whole world to know, even if you think that information is “private.”

Yes, Queen Elizabeth Saluted The Nazis, But There’s A LOT More To The Story (VIDEO)

queen elizabeth nazi

By: Cassius Methyl | The Anti Media –

Over the weekend, a video was leaked that shows Queen Elizabeth and her family proudly displaying the Nazi salute. The video shows  “…Queen Elizabeth II performing a Nazi salute as a child with her mother, sister and uncle at Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The video was most likely filmed between 1933 and 1934, after Hitler’s rise to power in Germany,” RT reported.

A spokesman for the royal family said, “It is disappointing that film shot eight decades ago and apparently from HM’s (her majesty’s) personal family archive has been obtained and exploited in this manner.” The family is reportedly seeking to prosecute whoever leaked the video.

This is a headline that is shocking to some and unsurprising to others, but regardless, attracts instant, widespread attention.

Unfortunately, the leaked video merely scratches the surface of insidious Western ties to the notoriously fascist regime—specifically, economic powers in the United States. American connections to Nazi Germany shatter the mainstream historical narrative and reveal a great deal about the underlying connections between nations at war.

For example, IBM recorded the victims of the Holocaust for Germany. IG Farbin—the chemical company that would become Bayer Pharmaceuticals—worked with the Nazi regime from the beginning and was connected to prominent American industrialists.

Prescott Bush (Presidential candidate Jeb Bush’s Grandfather) and other American industrialists, magnates, and Wall Street bankers engaged in extensive economic activity with Nazi Germany throughout the war.

Though this information is better sourced through books written on the topic, in 2004 the Guardian reportedthat

“George Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany. The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism. His business dealings, which continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz…”

The Bank of International Settlements (BIS), self-described as “an international organization of central banks which fosters international monetary and financial cooperation and serves as a bank for central banks,” supported Nazi Germany as if there was no war.

These little-known connections paint a vastly different perspective of the powers’ relationships with each other and reveal that money is a more potent force than any armed conflict where leaders send their citizens to die.

The well-documented relationship between Western powers and Nazi Germany should render the leaked royal video unsurprising. The detailed documentation of these relationships can be found in various books and publications.

On another note, some view the sudden release of the video as a distraction from more important issues. Is this revelation of little or great practical significance to our era in history?

In any case, it may serve as a perfect vehicle to convey this information.

Because of the historical perspective revealed with this topic, please share this with as many people as possible.

For those seeking more information, the free PDF book, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler by Antony C. Sutton is a worthwhile, well-sourced read that documents the connections between economic powers and Nazi Germany.

11 Signs That America Has Already Gone Down The Toilet

toilet_handle

Just when you think that the depravity of the United States cannot possibly get any worse, something else comes along to surprise us.  Many of the things that you are about to read about in this article are incredibly disturbing, but it is important that we face the truth about how far this nation has fallen.  There are times when I will be having a conversation with someone else about the state of our country, and the other person will say something like this: “Wow – America is really going down the toilet.”  At one time, I would have totally agreed with that.  But at this point I would have to say that we have already circled the bowl and have made it all the way through to the other end.  Our society is absolutely addicted to entertainment (most of which is utter trash), tens of millions of us are hooked on drugs (both legal and illegal), and we have murdered more than 56 million of our own babies.  Our financial system is consumed with greed, we treat our military veterans like human garbage, and most of our “leaders” in Washington D.C. are deeply corrupt.  In America today, 64 percent of all men view pornography at least once per month, it is estimated that one out of every four girls is sexually abused before they become adults, and we have the highest teenage pregnancy rate in the entire industrialized world.  We like to think that we are an “example” to the rest of the world, but the only example that we are setting is a bad one.  The following are 11 signs that America has already gone down the toilet…

#1 All over the United States, the body parts of aborted babies are being bought and sold, and the U.S. government gives the organization at the heart of this sick “industry” hundreds of millions of dollars a year.  This week, another incredibly shocking undercover video has been released which has given us even more evidence of what Planned Parenthood is really up to

The most recent video shows a luncheon conversation with Dr. Mary Gatter, who currently serves as president of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood’s Pasadena abortion clinic.

In the video, Gatter is heard haggling over the price she will charge for intact fetal body parts and is concerned that she will be “low-balled.” She asks for at least $75 per specimen, but wants to see what other Planned Parenthood abortionists are getting to make sure she gets similar compensation so she can buy an expensive sports car.

“It’s been years since I’ve talked about compensation, so let me just figure out what others are getting and if this is in the ballpark, that’s fine. If it’s still low, we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini,” Gatter laughed.

This is wickedness at a level that is almost unspeakable, and it is being bankrolled by the U.S. government.

Let’s hope that “I want a Lamborghini” gets plastered all over the Internet hundreds of millions of times.  I encourage everyone to get on Facebook and Twitter and start blasting out messages like this one to everyone that they know…

Dr. Mary Gatter

If we cannot even stop the U.S. government from funding this kind of evil, what possible hope is there for the future of this nation?

According to WND, some members of this “industry” even receive monetary bonuses “based on the baby parts they harvest”…

StemExpress, which is run by Planned Parenthood abortion doctor Ronald Berman, offers its procurement technicians bonuses based on the baby parts they harvest, according to the Center for Medical Progress. Larger bonuses are offered for more valuable body parts, classified as “Category A” parts, while smaller bonuses are given for “Category C” parts.

This alone is enough to prove that America has gone all the way down the toilet.  But I will continue with the list…

#2 Just a few days ago, we learned that hackers had stolen personal information from 37 million users on an adultery website known as Ashley Madison

A hacking insider has told Sky News he thinks the people threatening to release personal details of users of an adultery website are bluffing and using the publicity as advertising to sell the data to the highest bidder.

Hackers calling themselves Impact Team have stolen and leaked data from some of the Ashley Madison website’s 37 million users and are threatening to publish more.

For now the group has released just 40MB of data, including some credit card details and several documents about its parent company Avid Life Media (ALM), it is reported.

The big story here is not the hacking.

Rather, the big story is the fact that 37 million of us have signed up to participate on a website that facilitates adultery.

#3 Rates of violent crime are increasing by double digit percentages in many major U.S. cities in 2015, and some of the crimes being committed are almost too horrible to talk about.  Just consider the following example which comes from the Daily Mail

A 22-year-old man and his 21-year-old girlfriend were walking along McNichols Road near Birwood Street on Thursday around 11:30pm when a group of three to six men approached them in the well-lit area, WWJ reported.

The couple was allegedly forced behind a nearby business, where the six men robbed and stripped them of their clothes.

Police say the violent men took turns sexually assaulting the woman and when the attack ended, the victims ran nude to a nearby liquor store for help.

Another couple was attacked just a few hours later at 2:40am when a 21-year-old man and his 19-year-old girlfriend were walking in the area of McNichols Road and Pierson Street.

Four men ordered them to the ground and then took took turns sexually assaulting the woman, forcing her boyfriend to watch, WWJ reported.

Incredibly, these gang rapes barely made a blip on the news here in the United States.  There are so many similar crimes taking place all around us that there is nothing really “unusual” about these horrific rapes.

#4 Under the Obama administration, our federal government has become absolutely obsessed with political correctness and is spending money in some of the most bizarre ways imaginable.  For instance, the feds recently spent $125,000 “to study adjectives that could be perceived as sexist or racist“.

#5 Speaking of pouring money down the toilet, the Obamaphone program is a perfect example.  It turns out that all you have to do to get a free cellphone from the federal government is to show them someone else’s food stamp card

The 2014 CBS4 investigation showed repeated instances of fraudulent activity and waste in the Lifeline program in Denver. It’s an FCC administered program designed to provide free monthly cellphone service to the needy so they can have cellphone service allowing them to seek employment or call for emergency help if needed. Recipients are required to show official documentation like Medicaid, housing assistance or food stamp cards verifying their low income status in order to receive the free phone service.

But last year a vendor in Denver working under the FCC program had employees who volunteered to use someone else’s food stamp card to secure a free phone and service for a CBS4 producer who was not eligible for the program.

Vendors typically receive $3 for every phone they are able to give out. In other cases, vendors said a CBS4 producer could simply show someone else’s electronics benefit card in order to secure a free phone and service.

#6 Meanwhile, the government doesn’t even want to talk to normal, hard working citizens that just need a few questions answered.  According to a report that was just released, the IRS hung up on 8.8 million taxpayers that called in looking for help during this most recent tax season.

#7 The federal government has made it exceedingly difficult for law-abiding people to immigrate to this nation legally, but meanwhile they have left our borders completely wide open and have actively encouraged people to immigrate illegally.  As a result, large numbers of criminals, drug dealers, gang members and welfare parasites have come pouring in.  According to one recent report, 2.5 million illegal immigrants have entered this country while Barack Obama has been in the White House…

A new report estimates that 2.5 million illegal immigrants have entered the United States since Barack Obama took office in 2009.

The Center for Immigration Studies released a study Monday citing data from the Center for Migration Studies, Pew Research Center and the Census Bureau that indicates 400,000 illegal immigrants on average have entered the country annually since 2009.

From the middle of 2013 to May 2015 alone, 790,000 illegals have come into the United States. These undocumented individuals entered the country after President Obama unveiled a controversial executive order in 2012 to stop deporting young illegal immigrants who entered the country as children.

And honestly, that 2.5 million number is probably on the low side.  These illegal immigrants are committing some of the most horrible crimes imaginable, and if you doubt this, just read this article.

#8 Our society is being transformed into what I like to call “a Big Brother police state control grid”.  Just a few days ago, we learned of another example of this phenomenon.  The following comes from the New York Post

A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”

Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

What is truly sad is that so few Americans are actually upset that virtually everything we do is being watched, tracked and monitored.  For much more on all of this, please see this article.

#9 Just recently, I authored a piece which railed about the fact that the average American citizen spends more than 10 hours a day plugged in to some form of media.  Many of us become extremely anxious if something is not playing at least in the background.  We spend endless hours watching television, listening to the radio, going to the movies, playing video games, messing with our smartphones and surfing the Internet.  Sadly, what most people don’t realize is that more than 90 percent of the “programming” that is being continually pumped into our brains through these various media outlets is controlled by just six absolutely enormous media corporations.

#10 At the same time that the elite are endlessly pumping their twisted messages into all of our minds, they are becoming increasingly obsessed with controlling what the rest of us say.  In one recent article, I explained how support for “hate speech laws” in America is rapidly growing.  Today, 51 percent of all Democrats support these kinds of laws, and it is only a matter of time before liberal politicians start pushing really hard for the same kind of hate speech laws that have already been implemented in Europe and Canada.

#11 On top of everything else, we have been stealing more than 100 million dollars an hour from future generations of Americans since Barack Obama entered the White House.

Let that sink in for a moment.

If someone were to write a movie script about the theft of 100 million dollars from a major financial institution, nobody would ever actually want to make that movie because such an amount would be too hard to believe.

But this has actually been happening every single hour of every single day while Obama has been in power.

In a frenzy of insatiable greed, we have been taking trillions of dollars that belong to our children and our grandchildren and spending it ourselves.  When you break it down, it comes to more than 100 million dollars every single hour of every single day.  This is a crime of unimaginable proportions, and if we lived in a just society a whole bunch of our “top politicians” would be going to prison for this.

I could keep going, but I will stop for today.

So what do you think?

Is there any hope for America?

What additions would you make to this list?

Britain Covertly Bombing Syria

rubble-syria-bombing-us

In August 2013, UK parliamentarians rejected military intervention in Syria – voting 285 – 272 against it.

At the time, Prime Minister David Cameron said voting reflected popular sentiment. “(T)he government will act accordingly.” He lied.

On July 17, the UK-based human rights group Reprieve reported UK pilots bombing Syria – despite Cameron’s earlier pledge not to and recent claim about refraining from intervention without parliamentary approval, illegal whenever authorized without Security Council approval.

Documents Reprieve obtained through a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to Britain’s Defense Ministry revealed UK pilots “operating in Syrian airspace…flying…(s)trike missions” illegally.

Defense Secretary Michael Fallon told MPs government policy would require their approval. None was gotten. Clandestine bombing continues – not against ISIS, against Syrian infrastructure like US airstrikes, waging war on Assad, not imported terrorists ravaging Syria, now with US/UK/Canadian air support.

In response to Reprieve’s FOI request, Britain’s Defense Ministry said in part:

“UK military personnel embedded with the USA, French and Canadian armed forces have been authorized to deploy with their units to participate in coalition operations against ISIL” – self-authorized targeting Syrian and Iraqi infrastructure targets, not IS terrorists as claimed.

“These personnel include pilots flying ISR and Strike missions against ISIL targets using the equipment of those units. Of these three nations only the USA and Canada are operating in Syrian airspace” – a bandit operation in both countries.

Claiming “UK Embeds operate as if they were the host nation’s personnel, under that nation’s chain of command” belies reality.

Iraq may or may not have willingly accepted what’s ongoing – for sure not Syria, objecting strongly to largely US bombing without its permission.

Britain’s Defense Ministry contributed to IS hysteria, saying it “poses a direct threat to the UK and to countries around the world.”

Apparently before FOI documents were revealed, he lied saying Britain “is not conducting airstrikes in Syria.” Now we know they’ve been ongoing since last year.

Tory MP John Barron outspokenly said “no to military intervention. These troops or individuals should be withdrawn from the embedded program whilst this vote holds sway, while it stills hold authority, until we vote again.”

Tim Farron replaced Nick Clegg as Lib Dem leader. He said unauthorized Syria airstrikes were “done with our name and therefore should be done with our approval.”

Convenor of the UK-based Stop the War Coalition Lindsey German condemned covert Britain bombing, saying:

“Parliament voted against bombing Syria two years ago. Now we find that the government ignored this and allowed British pilots to bomb under US command.”

“This was a political, not a military decision and shows the contempt our Prime Minister has for democratic decisions. This should stop now and we should oppose all further attempts to bomb Syria.”

On Friday, Cameron’s spokeswoman admitted UK warplanes have been bombing Syria covertly since September 2014 – operating from a Persian Gulf-based US aircraft carrier.

Defense Secretary Fallon ludicrously compared IS terrorists to Nazi fascists during WW II. New Labour officials want Cameron to explain UK involvement in Syria by Monday.

Reprieve staff attorney Jennifer Gibson said the following:

“Documents obtained by Reprieve indicate that UK personnel have already been involved in bombing missions over Syria for some time – making the current debate over whether Britain should carry out such strikes somewhat obsolete.”

“It is alarming that Parliament and the public have been kept in the dark about this for so long. Yet more worrying is the fact that the UK seems to have turned over its personnel to the US wholesale, without the slightest idea as to what they are actually doing, and whether it is legal.”

“We need an open and honest debate about UK involvement in Iraq and Syria. We can’t have that, though, until the UK comes clean about what actions its personnel are already undertaking.”

A Final Comment

Britain and America won’t feed their hungry, house their homeless or provide universal healthcare to all their citizens – in Britain, the way its National Health Service once operated before massive neoliberal cuts and increasing privatization of a publicly run program.

But both countries spend billions of dollars annually bombing one country after another to rubble along with other military operations. War-making takes precedence over social justice. So does serving corporate interests over public ones.

The Death Of Michael Cravey: Unanswered Questions And Missing Information (VIDEO)

michael cravy

On the morning of March 3, 2014 Michael Cravey, a 28-year-old internet conspiracy researcher who worked under the pseudonym Thomas Brinkley, allegedly attacked a couple on the University of Florida campus. “Oh my God, he’s going to get me,” a woman whispered to a 911 dispatcher, before repeating it louder. “Oh my God, he’s going to get me.”

The woman claimed Cravey was laughing as he assailed her spouse, stabbing him in the neck with a knife. Cravey then led police on a high speed car chase that police eventually called off. Three hours later in a department store parking lot Cravey died in a hail of police gunfire after charging an officer with a hatchet. The press suggested that Cravey “espouse[d] conspiracy theories involving Aurora, Colo., mass shooting suspect James Holmes.” And tragically his preoccupations manifested in a spasm of crazed violence.

Yet there are numerous unanswered questions to the scenario purported as fact by U of Florida and Gainesville police officers. For example, the mild-mannered Cravey had extensively researched the July 2012 Aurora theatre shooting and he believed that he had broken that case. In the weeks leading up to March 3 Cravey claims he was being surveilled. Unknown parties had broken into his social media accounts. The iPhone Cravey used incessantly disappeared from the crime scene. Further, Cravey’s younger brother, Nicholas Cravey, actually works as a videographer for the Gainesville Police Department.

On this week’s episode of Real Politik Peter Klein of Tyranny News Network joins James to discuss the Cravey affair, his extensive examination of the case, and his relationship with Cravey.

Klein is a web consultant, independent researcher and producer of the landmark documentary, We Need to Talk About Sandy Hook, released in 2014. He has also produced videos probing the Cravey case and its varied mysterious dimensions.

The Pros And Cons Of Being A Suburban Prepper

The-Pros-and-Cons-of-Being-a-Suburban-Prepper

“Everyone who lives in the city is going to die when the SHTF.”

Have you ever been on a preparedness website and read that? It makes my blood boil, and not just because it’s a negative and discouraging thing to say. I am also not convinced that it’s correct.  Wherever you live, there are pros and cons, and your job as a prepper is to maximize the positive aspects of your location while taking steps to minimize the negative aspects.

This is especially true when it comes to the suburban prepper.

Although the mindset of those living in a rural community is, by necessity, more oriented toward self-reliance, living in the cities or suburbs is a fact of life for many.  Those sites or commenters which blithely tell people to pack up and head for the country are completely unrealistic.

There are many reasons that relocating is impractical for lots of folks who live in urban areas. Here are a few:

  • Elderly family members they care for who won’t relocate
  • Kids in school
  • Health concerns/medical care
  • Jobs – in this economy it is a bold move to let go of a sure thing
  • Owing more on a mortgage than you can sell your house for
  • Custody orders for minor children
  • The expense of a major relocation

So while the internet may act as though “moving” is an easy solution, there’s a lot more to it.

Because you don’t know the circumstances of others, it’s never a good idea to disparage where they live. While you may be very happy with your current location, that doesn’t actually mean it’s better than other locations. Each setting has its own benefits, and often you don’t realize what they are unless you’ve lived there. Comprehensive preparedness planning can make a home in the suburbs or city safe and well-stocked.

So, whether you live in a place with authoritarian laws, high population density, not enough space for self-reliance activities, or unfortunate weather conditions, the fact remains: you need to make the best of where you are. Every place on the planet has pros and cons.

In her recent article, “Bloom Where You’re Planted: Prepping to Survive Where You Are Right Now,” my friend Daisy Luther wrote:

While your current situation may be less than ideal, you have to remember that very few locations are actually perfect for prepping. Nearly anywhere you live will be subject to some type of extreme weather, be it crippling cold, blazing heat, drought, tornadoes, or hurricanes. Chemical spills can taint water supplies anywhere. Riots and civil unrest can occur outside of the big city.

The point is, to borrow an old saying, you just have to bloom where you’re planted.

There are many things you can do to create a viable preparedness plan wherever you happen to live.  Apartment dwellers at the top of a city high rise, folks in the middle of the desert, those in a beachfront condo, and people in HOA-ruled suburban lots all have to examine their situations, figure out their pros and cons, and work towards resolving what they can.  With some pre-planning, there is a lot you can overcome if you have the right mindset.  I suspect there are just as many (and probably far more) preppers living in the ‘burbs than there are living in perfect rural locations, with a lake, 10 acres of cultivated farmland, and an off-grid house.

Stop waiting until you move to the perfect location. Make preparations for the situation you have, not the situation you want.

The Pros of Living in an Urban Location

Urban locations are not without their benefits.  Here are a few pros for areas with higher populations.

1. There is ease of availability for supplies.

If you live out in the middle of Timbuktu, a stock-up trip takes a lot of planning.  I live on an island that requires a ferry ride to get to the mainland for shopping. If we needed to purchase last minute supplies, it would be a lot more difficult than just making a quick dash to the store.

For others who live remotely, “going to the store” can mean several hours in the car for the round trip, making it impractical to hit a good sale unless you have an outing planned during that time anyway. For those who are nearby, running across town to save some money is much more realistic.

2. A higher population means that you are less likely to have to go it alone.

Good neighbors can be a blessing. Do you have a friendly neighbor who would take responsibility for your kids if a disaster struck? In the event of civil unrest, your community can band together to combine skills and keep the neighborhood safe.

Ferfal, who wrote about surviving the Argentinian economic collapse, said that living in the country was absolutely not a guarantee of safety, because the isolation made families easier targets for home invasions.

3. In the event of an all-out disaster scenario, there are more resources for scavenging.

I’m not talking about a short-term incident of civil unrest with people looting televisions. But once you realize a situation has become long-term and that the way we lived before has ended, you may decide that it’s time to make a supply run to places which have been abandoned.

Scavenging is very different from looting! This will be easier, not to mention safer, if it’s closer to home.

4. Smaller spaces are easier to protect.

If it came down to just you and your family, do you feel like you could properly defend multiple acres from the unprepared? It takes a lot of manpower to cover fences and access points for that much land. However, a well-fenced suburban lot can be adequately guarded by only 1 or 2 people. With some creative planning,  you can be far more self-reliant than you would imagine in small spaces.

5. Urban areas are less likely to deal with specific scenarios.

Things like wildfires rarely threaten urban areas, but those living out in the secluded forest are far more at risk. As well, there are a number of predators the further you get from civilization. If you were to encounter a medical emergency, it takes someone in the country substantially longer to get help than it does someone in the city.

The Cons of an Urban Environment

Even with the benefits mentioned above, of course, there are also valid reasons that so many preppers strive to avoid living in the city. To be absolutely clear, while I don’t think everyone has to live in the boondocks, I do feel like the suburbs are somewhat safer than being right downtown.

Here are a few negative points to urban living:

1. When you live in the city, you’re more easily contained and controlled.

In the event of a martial law scenario, you will be far easier to corral if you are one of the people densely packed in an area that can be road blocked and guarded. Door-to-door searches for supplies or weapons can be much more efficiently undertaken in the city than they would be in a place where the homes are several miles apart.

2. Large population density means more competition for potentially limited resources.

While there are more resources to be had in an urban area, there are also more people looking for those resources. This means that if you are in competition for those resources, you either have to be early and get them before someone else does, or you must be more forceful than the other people going after those supplies.

3. The mob mentality can be very dangerous.

A mob mentality can be contagious. When swept up in an angry group, people will do things they’d never ordinarily do, and this can mean great peril. Think about the Black Friday shopping sprees where folks trample others just to get the deal on a bigger TV. Now imagine those people are hungry and they know you have food you aren’t sharing. You get the idea.

4. If you live in a high rise without direct access to the outdoors, it can be difficult to be self-reliant.

If you have a balcony, you can manage to grow some food for yourself. However, if you live in an apartment without any outdoor space at all, things get a lot trickier. That means you are unable to have micro livestock for protein, you probably have limited storage space for food and water, and growing vegetables will be difficult.  Without outdoor space, sanitation becomes more difficult as well.

5. City life is expensive.

Generally speaking, living in the city is a lot pricier than living in the country. Because of access to jobs, cultural activities, and educational facilities, places in town are in much higher demand. When you are spending double the amount on rent or mortgage, it can be harder to set aside money for prepping.   

The Final Word

The fact is, we live where we live. There are many more people in our country living in suburban and urban areas, and lots of them are preppers. Disparaging the place where another chooses to live is short-sighted. Most of us weren’t born preppers, and we when we wake up and see the light, we can’t change our entire lives overnight. Besides that, there are numerous issues that can keep us in a location regardless of whether or not it’s ideal.

Before looking down on a person who lives in a place that you might consider undesirable, stop and think of all the reasons it may be necessary for them to remain there. And remember, country homesteads are not immune to disaster, either.

Wherever you live, take steps now to make the best of it. Find resources, build your stockpile, and prepare. No place is perfect and we can all improve our chances, regardless of where we live.

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!
