Turkey: The Country ISIS Uses As A Home Base And Where It Has Sold 800 Millions Dollars Of Oil


If we truly do want to get rid of ISIS, why aren’t we doing anything about the Islamic governments that are funding them, aiding them and facilitating the sale of their oil?  As you will see below, ISIS fighters hop back and forth over the Turkish border with impunity, there are “direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIS members”, and more than $800,000,000 worth of ISIS oil has been sold in Turkey.  If these things are true, action must be taken.  According to a recent Rasmussen Reports survey, 92 percent of Americans consider Islamic terrorism to be a serious threat to the United States, and a Washington Post-ABC News survey found that 83 percent of registered voters believe that a terror attack that causes a large amount of casualties inside the United States is likely in the near future.  The American people clearly want ISIS to be dealt with, so why isn’t the Obama administration doing anything to go after the state sponsors of such terror?

At this point, most Americans have absolutely no idea what is taking place in Iraq and Syria, and the mainstream media is certainly not being straight with us.  That is why I want to share with you some key excerpts from an amazing article that was written by award-winning journalist and best-selling author Dr. Nafeez Ahmed.  According to his bio, he has “written for the Independent on Sunday, The Independent, The Scotsman, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Huffington Post, New Statesman, Prospect Magazine, Le Monde Diplomatique, among many others.”  His recent article entitled “NATO is harbouring the Islamic State” is a must read.  In particular, what he has to say about the relationship between the Turkish government and ISIS is extremely eye opening…

A senior Western official familiar with a large cache of intelligence obtained this summer from a major raid on an ISIS safehouse told the Guardian that “direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIS members was now ‘undeniable.’”

The same official confirmed that Turkey, a longstanding member of NATO, is not just supporting ISIS, but also other jihadist groups, including Ahrar al-Sham and Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria. “The distinctions they draw [with other opposition groups] are thin indeed,” said the official. “There is no doubt at all that they militarily cooperate with both.”

But it isn’t just that Turkey and ISIS have “direct dealings” with each other.  In his article, Ahmed goes on to explain that ISIS uses Turkish territory as a home base from which to conduct attacks, and ISIS trucks are able to travel back and forth across the border and throughout Turkey quite freely

The former ISIS fighter told Newsweek that Turkey was allowing ISIS trucks from Raqqa to cross the “border, through Turkey and then back across the border to attack Syrian Kurds in the city of Serekaniye in northern Syria in February.” ISIS militants would freely travel “through Turkey in a convoy of trucks,” and stop “at safehouses along the way.”

The former ISIS communication technician also admitted that he would routinely “connect ISIS field captains and commanders from Syria with people in Turkey on innumerable occasions,” adding that “the people they talked to were Turkish officials… ISIS commanders told us to fear nothing at all because there was full cooperation with the Turks.”

Unless the U.S. military and our intelligence agencies are completely blind, deaf and dumb, the Obama administration surely must know all of this already.

So why are they allowing it to happen?

In addition, in his article Ahmed also documented the fact that ISIS has been able to sell more than 800 million dollars worth of oil in Turkey…

Turkey has also played a key role in facilitating the life-blood of ISIS’ expansion: black market oil sales. Senior political and intelligence sources in Turkey and Iraq confirm that Turkish authorities have actively facilitated ISIS oil sales through the country.

Last summer, Mehmet Ali Ediboglu, an MP from the main opposition, the Republican People’s Party, estimated the quantity of ISIS oil sales in Turkey at about $800 million — that was over a year ago.

If ISIS had no place to sell their oil, they would be a far less formidable enemy.

And anyone that believes that the Obama administration does not know exactly where all of that oil is being sold is either completely clueless or is almost unbelievably naive.

Once we understand the role that the U.S. government played in the rise of ISIS, things begin to make more sense.  I encourage everyone to check out the excellent video by Ben Swann that I have posted below

And I think that everything that I have shared above helps to explain why Barack Obama has been so soft on ISIS.  In fact, an article posted on the Washington Free Beacon that just came out says that Obama has been blocking 75 percent of all airstrikes against ISIS targets…

U.S. military pilots who have returned from the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq are confirming that they were blocked from dropping 75 percent of their ordnance on terror targets because they could not get clearance to launch a strike, according to a leading member of Congress.

Needless to say, this is more than just a little bit alarming, and many of our military leaders are absolutely disgusted by Obama’s approach.  The following comes from Newsmax

According to the House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, R-Calif., the policy is coming under attack by military leaders who believe it has enabled ISIS to gain strength within the region.

You went 12 full months while ISIS was on the march without the U.S. using that air power and now as the pilots come back to talk to us they say three-quarters of our ordnance we can’t drop, we can’t get clearance even when we have a clear target in front of us,” Royce said.

“I don’t understand this strategy at all because this is what has allowed ISIS the advantage and ability to recruit.”

While Jack Keane, a retired four-star U.S. general, agreed with Royce’s evaluation of the policy, he noted that it’s not only severely “constricting the U.S.,” but he believes it has “been an absurdity from the beginning.”

Could it be possible that Obama never intended to win the war against ISIS?

Could it be possible that Obama simply wanted to try to “contain” them and use them as a tool to help overthrow the Assad regime in Syria?

Could it be possible that he is purposely turning a blind eye to the assistance that the Turks, the Saudis and other Arab governments in the region are giving to ISIS?

If the answer to any of those questions is “yes”, then the entire war against ISIS is a complete and total fraud, and Obama should be immediately impeached.

Things are not as they seem, and the American people are not being told the truth.

Please share this article with as many people as you can on Facebook, Twitter and through email.  Our government has actively betrayed us, and now Islamic terror is more of a threat to our way of life than ever before.

Utah School Forces Students To Create “Join ISIS” Poster! Radicalization Has Begun (VIDEO)

terrorism propaganda school assignment

In the town of Salem, Utah, parents are outraged at the latest assignment being given to the their ninth graders at Salem Junior High School, where they were asked to draw a propaganda poster for a terrorist organization.

Obviously the parents were outraged and the assignment was canceled, but it wasn’t until after some of the students has already completed the project. Furthermore, the parents were concerned that their children may have been scarred in the process and question if this was done in light of what happened in Paris, France.

While Christmas, Christianity, patriotism, and the American flag are being stripped from our schools, they are replacing it with the radical theologies such as Islam.

Here is the breaking report….

Trans-Human Technologies: Plastic Antibodies, Organ Printing


An article was published in the interdisciplinary journal Langmuir titled, “Patterning of Antibodies Using Flexographic Printing,” which read like a chapter out of a science fiction novel:

Antibodies were patterned onto flexible plastic films using the flexographic printing process…Printing antibody features such as dots, squares, text, and fine lines were reproduced effectively. Furthermore, this process could be easily adapted for printing of other biological materials, including, but not limited to, enzymes, DNA, proteins, aptamers, and cells.[1]

This concept – and now reality – of creating plastic antibodies and associated (pseudo)biological components, to be used for “medicinal purposes” within the human organism, is technically a form of cybernetics; that is, the combining of artificial technologies and biological systems to create human-machine hybrids (i.e. cyborgs) with enhanced abilities.  While the trans-humanistic ethos which subtends this sort of cybernetic technology is, for lack of a better word, creepy, the successes of synthetic antibodies have recently been lauded in both the experimental literature and mainstream media, alike.

A 2010 study published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society titled, “Recognition, neutralization, and clearance of target peptides in the bloodstream of living mice by molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles: a plastic antibody,” reported on the ability of plastic antibodies to effectively neutralize a toxic peptide in the bloodstream of mice:

We report that simple, synthetic organic polymer nanoparticles (NPs) can capture and clear a target peptide toxin in the bloodstream of living mice. The protein-sized polymer nanoparticles, with a binding affinity and selectivity comparable to those of natural antibodies, were prepared by combining a functional monomer optimization strategy with molecular-imprinting nanoparticle synthesis. As a result of binding and removal of melittin by NPs in vivo, the mortality and peripheral toxic symptoms due to melittin [bee venom compound] were significantly diminished. In vivo imaging of the polymer nanoparticles (or”plastic antibodies”) established that the NPs accelerate clearance of the peptide from blood and accumulate in the liver. Coupled with their biocompatibility and nontoxic characteristics, plastic antibodies offer the potential for neutralizing a wide range of biomacromolecules in vivo.[2]

The unintended, adverse effects of injecting plastic antibodies into animals or humans in order to improve on, optimize or replace natural immune processes, are likely beyond our present ability to comprehend, but nonetheless immense. Plastic, after all, is a derivative of crude oil, and despite these exuberent researchers’ claim to the contrary lacks biocompatibility with most living systems (being xenobiotic), excluding rare forms of bacteria and fungi. Nevertheless, it is likely that if we continue to see positive reports such as this in the animal model, it will only be a matter of time until human clinical trials begin, and FDA approval becomes a very real possibility.

With the anticipated future adoption of artificial body parts and cellular components into mainstream medicine, we will also begin to see widespread implementation of organ printing. The technology uses modified inkjet printers, capable of rendering 3-dimensional living biological structures.

In 2011, a review published in the journal Current Opinion and Biotechnology titled, “Organic printing: from bioprinter to organ biofabrication line,” discussed the Frankenstein-like technology already in the developmental pipeline:

Organ printing, or the layer by layer additive robotic biofabrication of functional three-dimensional tissue and organ constructs using self-assembling tissue spheroid building blocks, is a rapidly emerging technology that promises to transform tissue engineering into a commercially successful biomedical industry. It is increasingly obvious that similar well-established industries implement automated robotic systems on the path to commercial translation and economic success. The use of robotic bioprinters alone however is not sufficient for the development of large industrial scale organ biofabrication. The design and development of a fully integrated organ biofabrication line is imperative for the commercial translation of organ printing technology. This paper presents recent progress and challenges in the development of the essential components of an organ biofabrication line.

Organ biofabrication is only one aspect of the increasingly God-like power the biotechnology industry is assuming for itself. We have already seen this industry unleash upon a good portion of the arable surface of the earth the irrevocable juggernaut of genetically modified organisms. Things did not seem like they could get much worse, until in 2010, the journal Science reported on the “Creation of a bacterial cell controlled by a chemically synthesized genome“:

We report the design, synthesis, and assembly of the 1.08-mega-base pair Mycoplasma mycoides JCVI-syn1.0 genome starting from digitized genome sequence information and its transplantation into a M. capricolum recipient cell to create new M. mycoides cells that are controlled only by the synthetic chromosome. The only DNA in the cells is the designed synthetic DNA sequence, including “watermark” sequences and other designed gene deletions and polymorphisms, and mutations acquired during the building process. The new cells have expected phenotypic properties and are capable of continuous self-replication.[3]

If cells themselves are now being created through the insertion of synthetic genomes, and these cells are capable of self-replication, and can be manipulated into forming tissue intended to be implanted into human beings, there is little doubt remaining that the myth of Frankenstein has found living and breathing expression in the form of today’s no less horrific incipient technologies. At what point do we call technology which intends to blend plastic and human systems together into a more perfect union by its proper name: trans-human, or dare we say, post-human?

The reality is that there are a wide array of natural methods to stimulate bodily regeneration, which are foods, spices and nutrients [view our recent article on the topic: 6 Bodily Tissues That Can Be Regenerated Through Nutrition] but which do not lend themselves to proprietary commodification within a medical system governed by economic forces and motives far more powerful than intellectual or moral ones.

Pew Research Poll: 40% of Millennials Want To Restrict Free Speech

free speech

By: Joshua Krause, The Daily Sheeple |

Pew Research recently surveyed a broad selection of Americans on the subject of offensive speech, and their findings do not bode well for the future of America. The respondents were asked if the government should step in to prevent speech that is offensive toward minorities, to which 28% of Americans agreed. Mind you, this wasn’t about speech that called for violence against minorities. It’s anything that could be deemed “offensive,” an increasingly vague and inclusive term in this day and age.

What was more shocking however, was how different generations of Americans thought about the issue. 40% of millennials aged 18-34 thought that the government should prevent people from saying these things, which appears to be the latest in a long-term trend that favors free speech restrictions. Only 12% of those between the ages of 70-87, 24% of those aged 51-69, and 27% of Americans aged 35-50, supported government restrictions.

When the statistics were broken down by education level, those with college degrees had the lowest support, whereas those who had a high school degree or less were the most supportive. Depending on how you look at that, it either suggests that younger Americans are less enthusiastic about free speech rights than the generation that came before, or those who want to restrict speech aren’t as educated. Pew also found that woman and minorities were more likely to support government intervention, as were Democrats and Independents.

The only good news to come out of the survey, is that Americans still support free speech more than the citizens of other nations. “Compared with people we surveyed in dozens of nations, Americans as a whole are less likely to favor the government being able to prevent speech of any kind.” However, given the trends that we see in this poll, it doesn’t sound like Americans will be very tolerant of free speech in the future.

Paris Attacks: “Impromptu” Bataclan Footage Product Of Professionals


Today the iPhone and similar personal electronic devices allow everyday people to take high-quality video and photos in an instant. Yet two key videos that have emerged from the November 13, 2015 Paris terror events were shot by established professionals–one of whom travelled from Russia on the morning of November 13 to be quartered in unusually close proximity to the rear exit of the Bataclan Theatre, where he or his his neighbor, a professional journalist, captured footage of shooting victims and survivors being dragged from the building and hanging from the facility’s upstairs windows.


Russian photographer Victor Boyko is a well-connected and established professional photographer, as his portfolio suggests. His clients include some of the world’s foremost entertainment and pop culture luminaries, including film director David Lynch, fashion designer Ralph Lauren, rock musician Lenny Kravitz, and singer/model/actress Paris Hilton. In other words, he .

victor boyko


Mr. Boyko arrived at Charles De Gaulle airport in the early morning hours of February 13, as this Facebook post reveals.


That morning Boyko proceeded to a rented flat ideally positioned at the rear of the Bataclan Theatre, as noted in this Facebook post taken at mid-day on November 14. Perhaps coincidentally Daniel Psenny, a journalist working for Le Monde, was in the room next door where he claimed to film horrified Bataclan concert goers exiting the facility.


Here is a rough translation of excerpts from the text accompanying the above photograph posted by Boyko on Facebook:

I went home and went through hell.

As I left the Republique plaza it became obvious that something wasn’t right. Too many sirens, and for some reason there was a bunch of firemen. I then understood that the firemen were simply reacting to something else. There were lots of police at the restaurant on the corner of the Boulevard Voltaire and they literally pushed people inside the cafe and the waiter shut door and locked it. In the street on the other side of the avenue.

[Boyko then discusses visiting a tavern owned by “Niko,” who invited him in to have a drink despite the circumstances.] Here we heard  about people having been shot, both about bataklane and about small Cambodian restaurant at 20 rue Alibert. In October I rented an apartment on 10 rue Alibert and ordered take out food from there.

Shortly thereafter the pedestrians ran to the other side of avenue together with the policemen with the panels. Niko winked to me and reached from the pocket of coat the bottle of beer. After 15 minutes all hell broke loose. Ten or more people appeared on stretchers and others were being carried by hand and loaded into ambulances. President Hollande arrived and the woman-mayor of Paris … The police stopped with automatic weapons, roughly searching those present. A group of survivors from the Bataclan sat in the fence, many of them lacked clothing and shook in the cold.

I arrived back early this morning, the door of my flat opposite the rear entrance of the Bataclan [my back door out of the Bataclan], where they ran away. I opened the door and there was blood all over the place. The lever to the elevator was covered in blood…

Here Boyko refers to Le Monde‘s Psenny, but oddly fails to point out that Psenny is also a journalist at Le Monde, who remarkably produces the same photos and videos attributed to Boyko (below) from almost the same vantage point outside the Bataclan.

I went up in the elevator to my floor, and there is no neighbor. The door was wide open… he saw people running out of the club from the window and went to help injured. He fell under the some of those exiting the theatre and they shot him through hand. He’s now in hospital and had to have surgery. Even today, the street is covered in blood.

Psenny is also noted in the end credits of a short video produced by the New York Times that includes voice overs of Bataclan Theatre shooting survivors.

daniel psenny

In fact, the New York Times credits this video footage to Psenny and Boyko, with similar reports suggesting that Psenny captured the video from his apartment. Yet the video was clearly taken very close to if not from the identical vantage point that Boyko maintains are his quarters. (There are only two unedited shots in the Times video–one inside the Bataclan as the terrorists begin shooting and one of the rear entrance scene–comprising the footage.)

Did Boyko in fact take the video and allow Psenny and Le Monde to appropriate it? After all, this is what professional photographers are commissioned to do. If so, he doesn’t say as much. One may safely conclude that Boyko could not have been Psenny’s guest because he refers to Psenny as his neighbor in the above account. Indeed, their positioning at the scene is highly unusual, yet clearly acknowledged in the end credits to the New York Times short above.

Again, here are frames from the photos attributed to Psenny:

le monde 2

And here are the photos from Boyko’s Instagram page:


Along the lines of Boyko’s Facebook post, Psenny relates to the UK Telegraph. a somewhat sensational account of rescuing an American who cryptically goes by the name of “Matthew” from the Bataclan shooting scene. “Monsieur Psenny,” the Telegraph notes, “who had been in his apartment filming panic stricken concert goers rushing from the scene–including a pregnant woman hanging form [sic] an upstairs window–managed to drag [Matthew] to safety but was himself shot by one of the gunmen.”

Here is Psenny recovering from the injury and recounting his ordeal.

le monde

Indeed, this was “Matthew’s” second “narrow escape from a terrorist strike,” according to the Telegraph account. “He was at the foot of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 heading to a work meeting when a United Airlines plan struck one of the towers.”

Further, the sole video to emerge out of an audience of 1,500 that coincidentally captured the initial stages of the terrorist attack was shot by professional graphic designer and illustrator “Seb Snow,” according to the New York Times (above).

seb snow

In conclusion, almost everyone today–including Parisians–are equipped with cell phones that have substantial video and photographic capacities. Why then are the only videos taken of one of the most significant terrorist events in recent history produced by professionals who are strategically positioned at the crime scene in advance?

Hillary’s Foreign Policy: Endless Wars Of Aggression

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton participates in "A Conversation with Hillary Rodham Clinton" in Manhattan, New York

A Clinton presidency would be disastrous for America and humanity. She represents pure evil – the most reckless and ruthless of all current aspirants – a rogue actor on steroids, a real threat to world peace and stability.

The late historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. once called the New York-based Council for Foreign Relations (CFR) a “front organization (for) the heart of the American establishment.” It publishes only what it wishes the public to know.

It was Clinton’s venue for her Thursday foreign policy address, focusing on the Middle East, advocating escalated US military intervention, a reckless jingoistic proposal risking direct confrontation with Russia, possible WW III – using US-created ISIS and so-called “radical jihadism” as the pretext for her advocacy.

She called for America to lead “a worldwide fight…It’s time to begin a new phase and intensify and broaden our efforts,” she said. Assad is a vital part of the solution in Syria. She called him the problem, urging the  deployment of greater numbers of US special forces, invading Syria lawlessly without Security Council authorization.

She urged establishing no-fly and safe ground zones, lawless if implemented on and over sovereign Syrian territory, acts of war along with Washington’s illegal bombing campaign – directly challenging Russian control of all Syrian airspace, authorized by its government.

She wants America’s bombing campaign escalated – solely targeting Syrian infrastructure and government targets, not ISIS or other terrorists as claimed. She supports stemming the human refugee flood to Europe by keeping them in US-established internal “safe areas.”

She disgracefully called popularly reelected Bashar al-Assad “a vicious dictator,” blasting Russia and Iran for responsibly supporting him – at the same time, ignoring Obama’s aggression, affecting the entire Syrian population, using ISIS and other takfiri terrorists as proxy foot soldiers.

She outrageously accused Putin of “making things somewhat worse” – arrogantly stressing “no alternative to a political transition” excluding Assad, ignoring his popular mandate.

She wants other regional nations joining more forcefully with Washington in the fight to replace his legitimate government with a US-controlled puppet regime.

She blasted Iran, calling its government a regional “threat,” saying the Islamic Republic and ISIS represent equal challenges, wanting Iranian sovereignty eliminated like Syria’s.

She urges greater Israeli involvement in helping Washington establish unchallenged Middle East control. She wants “an updated authorization to use military force” (AUMF) for unlimited, unrestrained preemptive war.

“The time for delay is over,” she blustered. “We should get this done.” She wants Washington “go(ing) after terrorists wherever they” are – code language for endless wars of aggression against humanity in the name of fighting a US-created terrorist threat, as well as assaulting the remnants of homeland freedom, eliminating them altogether on the pretext of protecting national security.

“(E)very pillar of American power” should be used, she ranted. A  Clinton presidency would be  nightmarish for Americans, world peace and humanity, assuring endless wars of aggression and likely full-blown homeland tyranny.

It bears repeating. Her agenda is pure evil, combining the worst of Bush and Obama, representing America’s permanent war agenda and its profiteering beneficiaries – a real threat to humanity’s survival.

A Final Comment

Clinton’s candidacy is symptomatic of longstanding US rogue state policy, intolerant of democracy at home and abroad, committed to endless wars of aggression for unchallenged global dominance, risking humanity’s survival to achieve its objectives.

No matter who succeeds Obama in January 2017, the same pure evil agenda will continue. The only solution is popular nonviolent revolution. Nothing else can work. Voting is a waste of time.

Major Intelligence Officials Convened To Discuss “Shared Mission” In Syria 16 Days Before Paris Terror Attacks (VIDEO)

cia meeting before paris terror attacks

On October 27, 2015, sixteen days before the November 13, 2015 Paris attacks, Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan, former UK MI6 Chief John Sawers, Director of the French Directorate for External Security Bernard Bajolet, and former Israeli National Security Advisor Yaacov Amidror met in Washington DC to discuss how to get rid of democratically-elected Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, particularly in light of recent Russian involvement in destroying “ISIS”–the US proxy army.

The four officials discussed the problem and strategized on a panel (video above) “The Shared 21st Century International Mission,” moderated by Washington Post foreign policy columnist David Ignatius and co-hosted by the CIA and the George Washington University.

In addition to the fact that emergency drills were taking place in Paris on November 13, the unusual elements of the events themselves and the overall geopolitical trajectory leading up to the Paris attacks, this is yet another disturbing revelation previously posted on Scoopfeed one week ago.

As Scott Creighton comments:

Funny isn’t it how all the talk right now is about the “shared mission” we face in the wake of the Paris attacks just two weeks after their “shared mission” conference.

Makes you wonder doesn’t it?

ISIS Is Neither Islamic Nor A State


If you are in doubt about how the mainstream media brainwashes people, please ask yourself why everyone is calling the group identified with the black colored flag the “Islamic State”. Are they really Islamic? Are they really a State?

The answer to the previous two questions is a big NO.

Why is everyone calling the terrorist group, that alleges to be killing in the name of Islam, the Islamic State?

Why is the media saying that this group is a State?

ISIS does not possess any territory of its own, therefore it is not a nation or a State, and it certainly does not speak or act on behalf of people  who follows Islam.

Despite the facts cited above, we hear every single news outlet repeating the name ISIS, or the Islamic State. In truth, however, a more precise name for this organization would be Al-Qaeda or Al-Nusra.

As Hillary Clinton confessed in a TV interview, the terrorist group now running for dear life in Syria is nothing else than an overpowered version of the Mujahideen fighters that the Americans propped up in Afghanistan several decades ago.

They have been joined by mercenaries, thugs and the occasional Army special ops people from several countries in the Middle East region. This terrorist group has been aided by many western nations, both directly or indirectly. The US has provided them with weapons and cash. Turkey has given them training and transport and Saudi Arabia has done the same.

Perhaps a name such as the Saudi-American-Turkish Army would be more appropriate for the group that calls itself the Islamic State.

As I mentioned before, the media plays a very important role in creating consensus and determining reality and that is why everyone is calling the terrorist group names like ISIS, ISIL or the Islamic State. Had the media called it Al-Qaeda, everyone would still be calling that.

People ask whether the West can defeat ISIS, but do not realize that the group’s western backers are already winning the battle for them. Those who support ISIS, which is not totally under the control of the Americans or the Saudis, are already winning the language war. They have told people what they should call a group. If the media can brainwash people about a name, imagine what else they can do with perception and consciousness.

Some people believe that the neocolonialists who are behind terror organizations want to bring about ‘order out of chaos’. I say that it is more like disorder out of chaos and that disorder begins with language. It is in the mess of words that the world reflects its disorder.

The lack of understanding creates social insecurity and that insecurity results in poor use of language. The poor language gets even more aggravated by the growing chorus for so-called politically correct language, which seeks to censor free speech and political dissent.

Are we really at war or do people believe we are because the media reports on François Hollande says so? Is it a struggle against Muslims? Or it is against a new kind of fascism with religious roots? Is Islam the great totalitarian threat of the XXI century?

Are you sure you have the right information to be able to answer the questions posed above?

If there is war, it is also a war of words, hence it is appropriate, first of all, to clarify what ISIS really is.

The Islamic State (ISIS) is neither Islamic nor a State. The reason why the group adopted that name is because it helps to easily manipulate people’s perception of reality and focuses the public’s attention on the scapegoats: Islam and its followers.

The fact that most people are ignorant about the true nature of ISIS helps the neocolonialists direct people’s attention to someone to blame for the consequences of their terrorist actions against civilians.

The name ISIS is part of the propaganda that is used by the media to intimidate the ignorant masses. The puppets who appeared on the internet saying that they are a state that has seized power in several cities in Iraq and Syria has a territory where there may be some six million people and over which they exercised a monopoly of violence.

ISIS says they are Islamic because they follow Sharia Law in its most literal meaning, something shared, incidentally, with a number of recognized states like Saudi Arabia.

This purported Islamic State allegedly wants to implement a global caliphate, the highest authority of the political and spiritual realms. Currently, about 1.6 billion Muslims around the planet follow Muhammad and his immediate successors in the seventh century AD.

No future may seem brighter to Islamic militants -the group behind the terror scares- than becoming martyrs of jihad or war in an effort to impose the literal writings of the Koran under the auspices of ‘faith’ and under threat of violence.

Al Qaeda, that had no land, no managed populations and did not have a caliph, has been overcome, even in appeal among young fanatics who have joined the terrorist organization.

Bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda was also a western-backed group that for some time coordinated actions for Islamist fighters to attack the ‘enemy’:  Western imperialism; while ISIS is actively dealing with that enemy by attacking abroad in places such as Paris with the complicity of its western sponsors.

The third phase of the war of words, after politically correct language and the real origins of ISIS, is the propaganda talking point that mainstream media parrots on a daily basis: Those who oppose the appearance and growth of a Police State are accomplices of ISIS because, according to the propaganda, those who want to keep their constitutional rights intact are surrendering before starting the fight of civilizations.

It is in that last point -the fight of civilizations- that the imperialist elite want the world to move towards. Divide and conquer. Order out of chaos. One last fight that will result in total control on their hands while people kill each other because of their inability to understand reality.

Judgment On America? We Are On Pace For The Worst Year For Wildfires In All Of U.S. History!


Never before have so many acres burned in America up to this point in the year.  I just went and checked the latest numbers from the National Interagency Fire Center, and it turns out that we are now on pace for the worst year for wildfires in all of U.S. history.  So far in 2015, wildfires have burned an astounding 9,799,866 acres.  Before this, the worst year for wildfires was in 2006 when a total of 9,506,582 acres had burned through November 13th.  When I last reported on this, we were still behind 2006’s record pace, but now we have surged ahead of it.  Overall, the average for the last 10 years for the number of acres burned in the U.S. through November 13th is 6,464,947, and so we are more than 50 percent ahead of that pace right now.  Clearly, what we have been experiencing is highly unusual.  Could it be possible that this is some form of judgment on America?

In August and September, all of a sudden it seemed like major fires were erupting all over the western third of the United States.  I know, because at one point a huge fire came to within 10 miles of my own house.  Fortunately, no homes were damaged in my area, but in other parts of the country a tremendous amount of property was destroyed.

Following the unusual fires of August and September, we moved into a time of crazy flooding.  The storm that would became known as Hurricane Joaquin formed into a tropical depression on September 28th, which also happened to be the date of the fourth blood moon.  Moisture from that storm dumped unprecedented amounts of rain along many areas of the east coast.  In fact, it got so bad that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said that it was the most rain that her state had seen “in a thousand years”.

Of course it wasn’t just the east coast that got hit by flooding.  We also watched flash floods cause “rivers of mud” to completely bury vehicles along roads in southern California, and freak flooding in the state of Texas derailed a train and caused several deaths.  I covered more of the details in my previous article entitled “Why Is This Happening? Unprecedented Flooding Has Hit The U.S. Within The Last 30 Days“.

On top of the fires and the floods, we have also seen an unusual amount of seismic activity lately.  Oklahoma has already set a brand new state record for the number of earthquakes in a year, there have been notable earthquakes in Arizona and Alaska during the past 30 days, and a record-setting swarm of nearly 600 earthquakes in little San Ramon, California (just 45 miles from San Francisco) made headlines all over the world.  For much more on all of this shaking, please see my previous article entitled “Swarm Of California Earthquakes Continues A Series Of Unusual Events That Began In Late September“.

Of course now we are dealing with a major terror scare.  The vicious attacks in Paris were unlike anything that France has seen in the post-World War II era, and an international soccer match that Angela Merkel was scheduled to attend was canceled due to “concrete intelligence that someone wanted to set off an explosive device inside the stadium“.  Hundreds of millions of people in the western world are totally freaked out right now, and everyone is wondering where the terrorists will strike next.

Individually, each one of the things that I just mentioned may not seem particularly earth-shattering.  After all, there are always fires and floods and earthquakes.  But when you start putting the pieces together, a very disturbing puzzle begins to emerge.

Could it be possible that we are witnessing a pattern of judgment that began in the August/September time frame?

In the Scriptures, we see that there is often a progression to judgment.  For example, if you go back to the book of Exodus, God didn’t hit the Egyptians with the worst plague first.  Rather, there was a progression to the plagues that built up to a crescendo at the end.

Could it be possible that a similar pattern is starting to play out right in front of our eyes?

If it is, it won’t take us long to find out.  If these fires, floods, earthquakes, etc. are all part of a larger pattern, we should expect to see even worse events in the not too distant future.

So let’s watch and see what happens.

In the legal world, there is always a pronouncement of guilt before a sentence is administered.  And I believe that the months leading up to the August/September timeframe represented a period of time when America was being shown her guilt.

For example, I believe that it was no accident that the undercover Planned Parenthood videos came out when they did.  The entire world got to very clearly see that we are slaughtering millions of babies, chopping them up into pieces, harvesting their organs, and selling off those organs to the highest bidder.  We were very clearly shown our guilt, and the American people were given a final opportunity to repent.

But instead of repenting, the American people continue to run toward wickedness and evil.  Even after watching all of the undercover videos that came out, one survey found that only 29 percent of all Americans want to cut off federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

That survey absolutely stunned me.  The people answering the survey were not asked if Planned Parenthood should be totally shut down.  No, the only question was whether or not we should continue giving them hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars a year.  And when confronted with that question, less than 30 percent of all Americans wanted to end our funding of Planned Parenthood’s crimes against humanity.

Just after that survey was released, I got the opportunity to go on a major television show that is broadcast all over North America, and I publicly declared that America is finished.

And since that time, we have definitely witnessed a series of disasters that is very, very unusual.

So is this the judgment of God on America?

If so, is there much worse to come?

Circling The Wormhole


Time once again appears to be behaving strangely. Not just the surreal blender of the whirled news, but the little slippages here and there, abrupt realizations that it’s not the time or date you thought it was. Things like that. Are you noticing? Time moving very quickly, strange sort of head spinning feelings when trying to track your thoughts, memory lapses, sense of fatigue for no good reason, or ringing in the ears with a touch of vertigo? It’s freaky. There are a lot of influences at work right now. Some good, some bad.

Perhaps we may have hit the edge of the wormhole in some sense. Or are there competing wormholes?

That’s an exotic thought perhaps. But that’s what appears to be happening in many ways. The overall perspective of the awakening was easier to see from afar just a year or two ago. Now the picture is getting muddled and appears like a hodgepodge of swirling influences and resultant reactions. Things are mixing together like the colors in a young child’s finger painting.

It’s apparently because we have entered some kind of vortex perhaps, where time and space subduct like esoteric tectonic plates. What we’re seeing in the surreal whirled about us is just another manifestation. The rapid acceleration of their plan is designed to throw us off, much like fast changing scenes in an action movie. If you get swept into it the results can be distracting and very disempowering.

We need to be careful to dodge the spiraling flak while maneuvering into and even reveling in the true energetic vortex. It’s nothing to fear as long as we’re aware of what’s going on around us and stay on our toes.  The changes are changing and the winds are picking up.

It’s a great time for letting go – but it will not be a pleasant ride for those who refuse to loosen their grip.


Mixed Signals

Who knows the full plan? But we can track and watch and learn and experience. Knowing it’s all just a ride will save our spiritual hineys and keep our engines cooled during all this insanity.

It’s a strange dichotomy – watching the pre-placed dominoes fall yet being so enraptured with the awakening that’s happening, with so many catching on to what’s really going on. That’s the part I like to tune into but I have to admit this other stuff whirling around us doesn’t make it easy.

It’s clearly happening at a faster rate as the whirled stage antics escalate, yet it’s hard to put your finger on in many ways with all the crap we’re being told and so many swallowing the almost unavoidable fear propaganda campaign being waged. Some of those strange vibes you’re feeling are all the antennas picking up and resonating with this fear channel as the war on consciousness escalates. These and other signals interact causing a kind of wave interference.

Steer clear of it. That is not the wormhole to be anywhere near.

What we’re being shown by the big media projector is the exact opposite of what’s really going on.  Thankfully dot connecting makes things very plain, and when you learn to speak that language, damn it’s clear.

Don’t Get Sucked In

Funny thing about a wormhole – it can be a good one or a not so good one. These exterior manufactured influences are obviously meant towards more control and containment. Conversely, the positive spiritual influences are drawing us to deeper understandings, but they’re subtle and not that easy to identify in such an environment.

Discernment is the key, but it takes manning the rudder and sails intelligently. The threats to the alternative and independent media they’re making aren’t anything new. Clearly they’ve pre-decided this staged Paris event would be a kick off to the next level of many of their programs. Massively increased war budgets are passing without a whimper of consensus or protest while the NATO countries try to make an end run to occupy Syria and overthrow Assad and stave off Russia’s clean up job, something no one else would do since as we know ISIS is the West’s creation.

All while initiating draconian clampdowns anywhere and everywhere they can, fueled by continued terror events around the world which we’ll no doubt be seeing a lot more of to keep this tide of confusion rolling out.

Your Personal Choice

So, we’re again at a crossroads, a place we should all be familiar with since we’re constantly having to make decisions on what to let into our spiritual field. It’s important to be aware of what’s supposedly, yes supposedly, going on but more importantly it’s a time to dig deep and remain grounded in loving, encouraging truth.

And revel in it.

The whirlpools are spinning. We’re continually swept into more choices, and it’s much like vortecies pulling us in different directions. Most importantly, we’re being pulled into a wormhole of Truth and Transformation, one we’ve been in for some time, and we can’t lose track of that.

So what do you do? Run in fear and hide from what could be a path to a greater reality and cling to the old world addictions to whateverthehell keeps you entrapped and ensnared?

Or venture on.

It’s an easy choice for me, thankfully. Adventure towards freedom vs trudging towards slavery should be a clear cut decision for anyone who’s even half awake. That may not be clear to those being played like pawns in the whirled matrix but it’s always obvious to the awakened.

Don’t let yourself get confused or discouraged by all of this. We’re sailing through very choppy waters and we need to move forward with dead reckoning, knowing our direction and with full confidence in the ships of our lives – even if it leads to heretofore unexplored territory as we navigate around the whirlpools of deceit.

Conscious, awakened truth calls, and it’s a place of safe refuge in times of rapid change and seeming uncertainty.

Chinese Troops Train On U.S. Soil While New York Prepares For Terror Attack With Simulated Mass Shooting Exercise (VIDEO)

chinese military in united states
By: Alex Thomas, Intellihub |

In what is being touted as a groundbreaking first, Chinese troops are currently conducting training on U.S. soil despite recent tensions with the Communist nation.

The training, part of the 11th Disaster Management Exchange, is being conducted at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington State and includes at least 80 soldiers from the People’s Liberation Army.

Shockingly, American soldiers are apparently happy about the exchange with one even quoted by the New Tribune as saying how nice it was to be working with the military of a Communist nation with continued gross human rights violations.

“With all the craziness in the world, it’s nice to be working with the Chinese army,” Spc. William Soyster said, according to the Tribune report.

“It’s a reminder that we’re all in this together. We’re all human.”

The training is ostensibly about disaster preparation but considering the times we now live in one has to wonder the real reason for this unprecedented exercise, especially when you consider the recent problems between the two nations surrounding military exercises in the South China Sea that some media pundits theorized could lead to World War 3.

Also one must ask the obvious question which is when did the United States start needing the help of Communist China in order to respond to disasters around the world!?

Interestingly, the U.S. Navy also recently started a week-long training exercise, this time in China, with the guided missile destroyer USS Stethem arriving in Shanghai early last week ahead of planned communications exercises and a surface rescue simulation.

“The ship’s commanding officer, Harry Marsh, told reporters the visit was intended to “build mutual trust” between the two navies,” reported Defense News. 

“US sailors, he said, would learn about their counterparts’ “maritime experiences, so that when we operate at sea we can do it safely, and we understand what they are doing and what we do”.

Mass Shooting Exercise in New York City

As Chinese troops begin their training in Washington State and the U.S. Navy continues its joint naval operation with the Communist country, authorities in New York City recently conducted a major mass shooting simulation, apparently in response to the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and in preparation for the upcoming massive Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

According to a report by the Associated Press, the training exercise was planned long ago but got a “last-minute update” after the Paris attacks that included role players wearing suicide vests.

“The three-hour active-shooter exercise took place in the pricey Soho neighborhood populated by art galleries and boutiques. Members of the police, fire and federal Homeland Security departments went into action after a mock call reporting a gunman on the station platform,” reported the AP.

“Of about 30 simulated straphangers in the station, a dozen suffered “critical wounds” from weapons firing blanks. Firefighters removed them on thick yellow plastic sheets — some covered with fake blood — and law enforcement personnel took on the threat.”

The AP also reported that homeland security used the exercise to test new technologies, including cameras worn by first responders and gunshot detection systems designed to give police and other emergency response officials information to better coordinate their responses. According to NYC Police Commissioner William Bratton, the systems are being developed for surveillance of the subway system itself.

The training comes on the heels of the horrific terrorist attack in Paris, an attack that may or may not have been a government sponsored false flag, but one that was definitely at least partially helped along by western intelligence agencies.

One may be asking themselves what a mass shooting simulation in New York City has to do with Chinese troops training on American soil but, while they may not be directly connected, these two key events happening so close to each other deserves further scrutiny.

As alternative media researchers have detailed for years, whenever a false flag happens there are usually “hallmark” signs which include there being a training drill going on at the same time as the real attack that just so happens to be simulating the exact scenario that is playing out in real life. This fact alone makes the recent mass shooting exercise in New York worth paying closer attention too.

Couple that with the fact that many researchers have also pointed out that, in the event of a declaration of martial law, authorities would most likely try to use foreign soldiers to help police the populace and you have even more reasons to dig deeper into these two seemingly unrelated events.

What do you think?

Why has Obama invited Communist China to train inside the United States? Is the recent mass shooting exercise in New York connected or are both these stories just more evidence that we truly are living in trying times?

Who Do Intelligence Snoops Serve?


*Article republished from 2004 – “True then and even more accurate today.” -SARTRE

I strongly believe the CIA is ably led by George Tenet,” George W. Bush said in an Oval Office interview to be broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Well, from the perspective of the Intelligence Community culture, the president is probably correct. However; the essential question that is continuously ignored, asks if those assets serve the American People!

Spying is as old as time. The principal aspect that matters is the purpose of that intelligence gathering. The CIA is only the most visible agency that engages in the practice of counterintelligence. Those that are acknowledged openly are listed on an official government site, Members of the Intelligence Community (IC). The history of success (depending on how one defines such a standard) is mixed at best. Notwithstanding, the public accounts, the real story lies deep within the bowels of “foggy bottom” archive tombs. Those too sensitive to ever risk the light of day, have been buried along with those who knew too much.

So what else is new? The varied fiefdoms often conflict, since they seldom share a common agenda. Only a naive believer accepts that these spooks snoop for the national interest. A sub rosa government needs not to rely upon conspiracy theories or urban legends to be real. All you have to do is simply study the historic record of how events really play themselves out . . . Secret operations and schemes are the precise business the IC conducts. So why would it be silly to dismiss that the world operates upon a lust for power, or that it is abnormal?

Ushering a serious discussion about the motives and intentions of the black bag boys, risks the loss of credibility within polite circles. The extent and degree of their mastery, is demonstrated that inquiry into the secret agent realm, has been deemed a characteristic of paranoia. Even when random patterns or coincidence are implausible, the government instructs the public that only the psychotic believe in conspiracies.

If that was so, how does one explain the sociopathic behavior that routinely comes out of the STATE? Debating or criticizing a specific incident may be entertaining and even informative, but when was the last time folks agreed upon the unique trajectory of that “magic bullet” which did so much damage? Consensus is more than one can hope to achieve. Citizens are too afraid of admitting that they are ruled by other than duly elected representatives and benevolent bureaucrats.  Nonetheless, that is exactly the circumstance of our lives.

The missing ingredient that escapes the discernment of the masses is that intelligence gathering is valid if it serves and protects a way of life, which is based upon individual liberty. When policies, programs and techniques have the very aim of stripping natural rights from the sovereign citizenry, who do these spies serve? A clandestine mindset, causes subversion of legitimate authority. Disinformation is a standard diet that is dished out for public consumption. And hidden elitist interests never justify cryptic genocide, in the name of national security.

Jim Lobe, an accomplished investigative reporter, makes the point well. Inspection of Vice President Dick Cheney’s role and that of arch NeoCon – Lewis “Scooter” Libby – interaction with the CIA has been made public. “And it was also Libby and Cheney who reportedly visited the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) several times in the run-up to the war in Iraq in what was taken as pressure on CIA analysts to take a darker view of Saddam’s alleged ties to al-Qaeda and weapons of mass destruction than what was reflected in the agency’s reports”. Just another turf battle among varying factions! Or the harboring of more sinister forces?

What do you think? When George Bush was asked by Tim Russert about both Senator John Kerry and himself being in the same Skull and Bones secret society, the President replied:  “It was so secret that you can’t talk about it!”  Do you believe he was joking or just admitting the obvious? Just look at George’s face! If looks could kill, Russert would be dead.

This is a transparent example of the visible, but the general public are kept in a darkened room as they are tortured by the plots of the IC. Do they direct themselves and delve in free lance projects, or are they mere tools of more ubiquitous and eternal forces? You don’t need a sermon preached on this topic to understand the workings of political power. Intelligence services are gatekeepers for establishment cabal interests. They may serve occasionally or sit at the same table of the manipulation. But at all times they collaborate when it benefits their own agenda.

Take your pick! Despite clouded information, you can be assured that the Intelligence Community does not salute the flag of the Republic. Their empire is based upon the need to confront foes, real or imaginary. It’s their task to convince you that their enemies are also yours; especially when there is no actual threat to you. If you dispute their program, you just might make their list of suspected dissenters. And, by now, you should know there is a very thin line between protest and being branded as a terrorist.

The Who, How And Why Of The JFK Assassination – 52 Years On – Part 1

The JFK assassination still matters, 52 years on.

The JFK assassination still matters, 52 years on.

The JFK assassination, almost to the day 52 years later, is still subject that generates a lot of emotion, curiosity and speculation. Rightly so – the event was of extreme significance and is a telling reminder that the people who run this world are far above the level of prime ministers and presidents. Like 9/11, the JFK assassination was a severe blow to the psyche of the public in America and the world. It was mass trauma, not only crafted to remove a man who opposed the New World Order manipulators in many ways, but also designed to shatter innocence and send a powerful message: that the controllers can kill whomever they want and get away with it by controlling the key power centers of society (White House, CIA, FBI, Texas state governorship, local police and sheriff’s departments, etc.) so that any subsequent investigation will go nowhere.

The implications of the JFK assassination remain large to this day, a fact lost on Noam Chomsky when he stated that “Who knows? Who cares? Why does it matter? … The evidence against [a high-level conspiracy to kill JFK] is overwhelming” and thus revealed himself to be either unintentionally narrow-minded or an intentional gatekeeper of truth. Hollywood actor Bruce Willis summed it much better than Chomsky when he declared: “They still haven’t caught the guy that killed Kennedy … I’ll get killed for saying this, but I’m pretty sure those guys are still in power, in some form. The entire government of the United States was co-opted“. Indeed – it was co-opted, and still is.

Why The JFK Assassination Still Matters Today, 52 Years On

So, why does it still matter today? Quite simply, because the killers are still at large and on the loose. I don’t necessarily mean the actual killers or even the actual conspirators coordinating them, but rather, the same shady families, bloodlines, organizations and Secret Societies that executed the murder. The JFK assassination was a coup d’etat. The New World Order conspirators took over the US Government in broad daylight, and managed to escape scot free, only needing to sacrifice a few of the lower men in their conspiracy. The Mafia, CIA, FBI, Federal Reserve and military-industrial-intelligence complex (including secret groups like MJ-12) in general are just as out-of-control today as they were in JFK’s time, if not more so. The Bush bloodline has become even more entrenched in American politics, not less. The same group of white-collar thugs and criminals still have their hands on the reins of power. The effects of the JFK assassination can still be felt today just living in the modern United States, watching it descend more and more into a police state of surveillance and tyranny.

A Brief Background to the JFK Assassination

Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, made a fortune importing alcohol into the States after prohibition.

Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, made a fortune importing alcohol into the States after prohibition.

Thousands of books have been written on the subject of the JFK assassination, so it’s obviously far beyond the scope of this article to cover it all. Instead, this article briefly summarizes the who, how and why. Before getting into the who, people unfamiliar with the JFK assassination will need a brief background on John F. Kennedy.

To begin with, JFK was maneuvered into power by his father, Joe Kennedy, a shady character in his own right, and a former US ambassador who made a fortune from importing alcohol into the US in the days after prohibition. Kennedy had developed enough power and contacts to push his son into the candidacy – but Joe and John had to meet and cut deals with various groups like the Mafia in order for John to get into power. This would later come back to haunt him when he double-crossed the Mafia and by sending his brother Bobby (who was Attorney General from 1961-1964) after them. JFK was highly beloved and respected, but like any human, he was not perfect. Due to suffering from Addison’s disease, he was dependent on a daily array of numerous Big Pharma prescription drugs (including painkillers and stimulants). He was also a sex maniac – the list of his known mistresses was reportedly 33 at the time of his death – who likely benefited from using presidential mind controlled sex slaves like other US presidents after him (see Brice Taylor and Cathy O’Brien’s testimonies regarding former Presidents Ford, George Bush Sr. and Clinton).

However, despite his vices, Kennedy had courage and principle. He learnt pretty quickly that the military-industrial complex (to which outgoing President Eisenhower referred) was out of control, and had seized the reins of power in the US – especially the CIA. After the Bays of Pigs disaster in 1961, and almost being dragged to the point of nuclear war with Russia during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962, JFK quickly wisened up to the shocking truth that psychopaths occupied high positions of power in America, and that many of them belonged to a close-knit network of Secret Societies. JFK wanted to pull out of Vietnam, making enemies in the military-industrial complex whose profits back then and still today depend on constant war.

The JFK assassination took away the last great US President to stand firmly against the goals of the New World Order.

The JFK assassination took away the last great US President to stand firmly against the goals of the New World Order.

He made another great enemy when he sacked Allen Dulles, head of the CIA, in November 1961, and made still more powerful enemies in the international banking elite when he tried to override their privately owned Federal Reserve bank with Executive Order 11110 in June 1963. Here is a partial excerpt from it:

“The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12, 1933, as amended (31 U.S.C. 821(b)), to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of an outstanding silver certificates, to prescribe the denominations of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their redemption.”

Some believe this brave and informed speech, dubbed “The President and the Press”, given by Kennedy in 1961, set the wheels in motion for the JFK assassination:

“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence – on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”

JFK seemed to bump up against this monolithic and ruthless conspiracy in many ways, making many powerful enemies. Let us now turn our attention to the who of the JFK assassination and name them.

The Who of the JFK Assassination

So who killed JFK? Kennedy made numerous enemies, including the CIA and the Mafia (basically one and the same thing), the Federal Reserve and the forever warmongering military-industrial-intelligence complex in general. According to sources such as LBJ (Lyndon Baines Johnson) mistress Madeleine Duncan Brown, who was also the mother of LBJ’s illegitimate son, the night before the JFK assassination, a group of men gathered at the house of Dallas oil man Clint Murchison. Many of the conspirators were among them. They included:

– Clint Murchison himself, who stood to lose a fortune if Kennedy changed the oil depletion allowance;

– Haroldson Lafayette Hunt, Texas oil tycoon, in the same position as Murchison;

– FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover, who had invested millions into Murchison’s oil business, and who knew the Kennedy wanted to replace him;

– Vice-president LBJ (who had ordered 8 people to be murdered, including his sister, and was about to be found out before JFK’s death);

– Texas Governor John Connally;

– Dallas Mayor Earle Cabell (brother of CIA Deputy Director Charles Cabell, whom Kennedy had fired);

– Richard Nixon, who had lost the 1960 election to JFK;

– The 2 Brown Brothers, of Brown Brothers/Harriman, who were involved along with the Bushes in funding the Nazis;

– Joseph Sevilla, head of the Dallas mafia;

– John McCloy, head of Chase-Manhattan Bank, a confirmed Nazi who shared a box with Hitler in the 1936 Olympic Games;

– Carlos Moncello, Mafia don;

– Jack Ruby (Rubinstein), who later killed the patsy Lee Harvey Oslwald on live TV, and who worked for Mafia boss Sam Giancana;

– Malcolm Wallace, world-class marksman, serial killer and LBJ hitman, whose fingerprints were found on the weapon in the Texas School Book Depository.

The CIA and the Mafia were the major players in the JFK assassination.

The CIA and the Mafia were the major players in the JFK assassination.

Interestingly, Madeleine quotes LBJ as saying, as he left that fateful meeting, that “after tomorrow those SOBs [sons of bitches – the Kennedys] will never embarrass me again. That’s no threat – that’s a promise!” Then we have the deathbed confession of CIA agent E. Howard Hunt (Operation 40), who was also highly involved in the JFK assassination plot and later in the Watergate burglary. Hunt named CIA operatives Cord Meyer (whose wife was apparently having an affair with JFK), David Morales and William Harvey as being involved as gunmen. Hunt also hired Frank Sturgis and Bernard Barker. Other people involved in the JFK assassination were Dallas Sheriff Bill Decker, Dallas Police Chief George Lumpkin, the men that New Orleans District Attorney tried to prosecute (Clay Shaw, David Ferrie and Guy Banister), Joseph Milteer (see FBI agent Don Adams’ research on this) and presidential limousine driver William Greer, the secret service agent who slowed down and brought the limousine to a stop after the first shot was fired. This action alone, in violation of secret service protocol, allowed the subsequent sniper shots to successfully complete the JFK assassination.

Researcher Ole Dammegard has done a great job exposing CIA Operation 40, a super-secret team of assassins composed of around 40 crack CIA agents, created in the late 1950s by President Eisenhower and VP Nixon. It was behind many of the most famous high-profile assassinations of the last 6 decades, including the JFK assassination, as well as those of MLK, RFK, John Lennon, Che Guervera, Bob Marley and more. Dammegard named the exact names and positions of the gunmen at Dealey Plaza on November 22nd, 1963 in this radio interview with Roxy Lopez (around the 34-minute mark) as follows, which closely corresponds to this list and also this one in his Veterans’s Today article:

Masterminds of the JFK Assassination

The above people were some of the main conspirators, or at the very least knew about the planned JFK assassination in advance and were in favor of it. However, evidence shows that the actual masterminds of the JFK assassination were probably more like these 4 men:

– Allen Dulles (CIA);

– David Atlee Phillips (CIA);

– George H. W. Bush (CIA); and

– Sam Giancana (Mafia).

The man in the above photo at Dealey Plaza on the day of the JFK assassination looks suspiciously like George Bush.

Allen Dulles was an elite lawyer who co-wrote the Treaty of Versailles – the one that severely and unfairly punished Germany for WW1 and created fertile grounds for German discontent, cheap German stocks, the rise of a tyrant like Hitler and WW2. As has been well documented by people like Anthony Sutton, Wall Street funded the rise of the Nazis, and helped ensure many of them escaped at the end of WW2 into America under Operation Paperclip. Dulles became a director of the elite think tank Council on Foreign Relations in 1927, and later in 1950, Eisenhower promoted him to CIA director, where with Nazi assistance he helped to create the MK-Ultra mind control programs. He was rumored to be head of MJ-12, in charge of advanced UFO and ET technology. David Atlee Phillips became the CIA’s head of operations for the Western Hemisphere, head of Operation 40 and Lee Harvey Oswald’s handler. Sam Giancana was a Chicago Mafia boss who was approached by the CIA to assassinate Cuban president Fidel Castro. Giancana reportedly said that the CIA and the Cosa Nostra Mafia were “different sides of the same coin” and that “the CIA and the mafia are one organization who keep a low profile while they control the whole world as a business”.

As Francis Conolly narrates in the excellent film JFK to 911 Everything Is A Rich Man’s Trick:

“[The spy agents of the US Government] function essentially as a goon squad of mercenaries and murderers, hardly any different to Hitler’s gestapo, and are used a private intelligence service and as personal hit men for America’s richest families – their only role being to cover up the dirty tricks which the rich people are playing on their fellow countrymen, every day.”

The role of George Bush is central. Many have claimed it is him in this photo (above) at the scene of the crime. John Hankey explores the evidence in his film Dark Legacy: George Bush and the Murder of John Kennedy. We know that Bush was working at the CIA in 1963 (despite his claims under oath that he only began there in 1974) from this declassified FBI memo written by J. Edgar Hoover which names him as being part of the CIA, supervising “some anti-Castro group” that was implicated in (or responsible for) the JFK assassination. This declassified document (scroll to bottom) places Bush in Dallas on the day of the shooting, 11/22/1963. Russ Baker also provides more evidence of Bush’s involvement in the JFK assassination. George Bush, like his father Prescott and like Averell Harriman, was a member of the Skull ‘n’ Bones Club (which engaged in sexual Satanic ritual or black magic) – the exact kind of secret society JFK was speaking against in his 1961 speech. It seems George Bush was the man in charge of operations on the ground that fateful day in Dallas.

Part 2 of this series deals with the how, and part 3 with the why of the JFK assassination – and the occult masonic symbolism surrounding it.

‘A Skeleton Key To The Gemstone File’ Turns 40

Is this Eugene Brading’s ‘X-marked hatband’? (‘A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File’ (p. 5)

By: Shawn Hamilton, Theswillbucket |

In 1975 an extraordinary document surfaced called “A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File.” Distributed hand-to-hand long before the advent of computer-based social media, the 22-page typed copy I received in 1976 had been reproduced so many times that several words and letters were unclear or missing. Evidently a fervent underground effort had been underway to get this information out. So I’ve kept a copy of the Skeleton Key around for the last four decades taking notes on developments, and recent history, so far, has increased my confidence in the document’s veracity.

The Skeleton Key’s genesis involves a conspiracy-themed radio talk show host named Mae Brussell née Magnin, who lived in Carmel Valley, California in the early 1970s and was related to the founder of San Francisco’s fashionable and prosperous I. Magnin department store chain. A local news director had introduced Brussell to Stephanie Caruana, then a contributing editor at Playgirl magazine. Although some question the Key’s authorship, it is generally attributed to Caruana who says she wrote it. She said it was the Patty Hearst kidnapping that resulted in her meeting Brussell.

“I was just ranting with curiosity about Patty Hearst because she was living around a mile from me in Berkeley when the kidnap happened, and this whole massive publicity campaign got underway. I was saying, ‘What is going on here? This doesn’t seem like a normal case.’ It was so overblown,’” Caruana said. “The mass media get on a story and everybody covers the same story day after day, but if you really know what’s going on, you may suspect that there is something else going on underneath, something they’re not paying any attention to.”

On February 4, 1974, a group of “revolutionaries” using the contrived appellation, “Symbionese Liberation Army” (SLA), abducted Patty Hearst— the 19-year-old granddaughter of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst—who was attending the public university in Berkeley. The Skeleton Key refers to the SLA episode this way: “February 1974: Mafia Hearst’s daughter, Patty, “kidnapped” by Lipset’s SLA in a fake terrorist action.” Hal Lipset was a San Francisco private investigator whose name also appears in the Skeleton Key connected to the Watergate debacle.

The SLA began in 1971 as a loose-knit group of mostly middle and upper-class white radicals who embraced a mélange of philosophies endorsing selective violence and crime to initiate social change. While a few members were in prison, they met Donald “Cinque” DeFreeze during meetings of the “Black Cultural Association.” After DeFreeze conveniently escaped from prison in 1972, he contacted SLA members in Oakland and eventually assumed leadership of the group, which engaged in kidnappings, bank robberies, assassinations—and feeding the poor, all in an apparent effort to foment revolution. After abducting Patty Hearst, the SLA demanded that large amounts of food be donated to poor people in exchange for the heiress’s release. Patty’s father, Randolph Hearst, president of the San Francisco Examiner, agreed to pay an initial $2 million in ransom, and food was distributed at several sites. According to The Realist publisher Paul Krassner, when the governor, Ronald Reagan, saw one of the long lines of people waiting for food, he groused, “I hope they get botulism.” Due to lack of adequate organization the food giveaway was a disaster, so the SLA refused to release Hearst.

Caruana had given Krassner a copy of the Skeleton Key in 1975, the same year he began reporting on the upcoming Hearst trial for the Berkeley Barb. In his 2014 book, Patty Hearst and the Twinkie Murders, Krassner outlines a case to support a bold claim. “Donald “Cinque” DeFreeze,” he says, “was a double agent.”

Brussell too believed that a clandestine arm of the US government either created or manipulated the SLA as a tool of espionage designed to distort the message of idealism. The root of the neologism “Symbionese,” the Greek “symbiosis,” means “a living together” as in peace, harmony, and balance—among the subversive ideas and ideals that the operation apparently tried to undermine. Krassner, once a member of Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters and the first living inductee of the Counterculture Hall of Fame, had published Brussell’s early articles on the Watergate antagonists. “She really did scoop everybody,” Caruana said. “I believe she got that information from Roberts’ Gemstone papers because he certainly had the goods on those people. He knew all about them.”

The public generally assumed Hearst was being held against her will, so it was especially dramatic when on April 3, 1974, she announced that she had joined the SLA to fight for the oppressed and had adopted the “revolutionary” name, Tania.” After a security camera filmed her helping the SLA rob a San Francisco bank on April 15, the public assumed she was being coerced or brainwashed. Subsequently, the group fled south to Los Angeles where members sequestered themselves in a south-central community until a suspicious neighbor tipped off the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

Militarization of the police was relatively new then, and I recall seeing on television the impressive public demonstration by the LAPD’s Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit of its new and very expensive military-grade equipment. So, not unexpectedly, on May 17, 1974, live cameras allowed the country to watch the house burn down with SLA members inside—presaging later events such as the destruction of the MOVE complex in Philadelphia and the “Branch Davidian” compound in Waco, Texas. When officials began investigating, everyone wondered if Patty Hearst was inside. She wasn’t. Six had perished, but the rest had escaped. Patty Hearst was caught on September 18, 1975 and went to trial in January of 1976. She served two years for “bank robbery” and “use of a dangerous weapon” before President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence and President Bill Clinton later pardoned her.

In December of 1974 Playgirl magazine ran an article that Caruana and Brussell had co-authored called, “Is Howard Hughes Dead and Buried Off An Island In Greece?” It involved the disappearance of Texas multi-millionaire Howard Hughes and Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis, but after examining the file folder of notes Brussell had provided, Caruana told her she had found little evidence to justify an article accusing either man of misdeeds. At that point, Caruana said, Brussell reluctantly produced a file containing several hundred handwritten notes, letters, articles and news clippings of a man named Bruce Porter Roberts along with specific instructions on when and how to read them. Brussell stressed that it was easy to get “lost” in the material and imposed specific conditions on its reading. Caruana, cloistered in a bedroom at Brussell’s house, read into the early morning, increasingly absorbed in a sordid tale of political intrigue, thievery, and murder. Caruana wrote the Playgirl article based on the revelations contained in those pages.

“Mae placed a lot of restrictions on me. In the first place, she really didn’t want me to read Roberts’ letters. She was keeping them a very closely held secret. I can imagine a lot of reasons, but I can’t tell you which one is right. She just didn’t want this stuff to get out,” Caruana said. “I thought it could have something to do with her two uncles who were involved in politics. They were both rabbis who were political—one a Democrat and the other a Republican. Part of this whole Gemstone thing has to do with people’s families and how important it is to know who’s related to whom and how. These plots and plans and tools really determine what goes on in countries. If you know who’s related to whom, it often clarifies things a great deal,” Caruana said.

The Skeleton Key distills the massive collection of letters and various writings of Bruce Roberts, who had studied journalism and physics at the University of Wisconsin specializing in crystallography, including the creation of synthetic gems such as rubies. One of the few known pictures of Bruce Roberts, a magazine photo from the 1950s, shows him pinning a synthetic gemstone on the flamboyant entertainer Carmen Miranda. This verifies Roberts’ existence as well as his interest in artificial gems. Caruana assured me that this was the Bruce Roberts with whom she had conversed in San Francisco.

According to the Skeleton Key, Roberts had taken some of his synthetic rubies to the Hughes Tool Company hoping to exchange a few of them for use of its facilities. Instead, Hughes employees stole his rubies, which Roberts believed was due to their optical quality and potential use in laser beam research. That episode caused Roberts’ profound animosity toward the Mafia generally and Howard Hughes specifically.

Roberts’ thesis simply posits that organized crime controls the United States and has since at least 1963. The Skeleton Key begins in 1932, introducing readers to Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, who would one day marry Jackie Kennedy. The Key tells us he made his first million selling “Turkish Tobacco (opium)” in Argentina and during Prohibition used his ships to smuggle alcohol into Boston for Joseph Kennedy. As crowned head of the international Mafia, Onassis brokered a lucrative deal with the Seven Sisters (major oil companies) whereby they would swindle the Arabs out of their oil and transport it using the fleet of surplus World War 2 “Liberty ships” Onassis had acquired from the US at bargain prices. According to Gemstone, Onassis established a power base in the United States by usurping Howard Hughes’s empire. He kidnapped Hughes and arranged a widely publicized “fake” marriage to explain his seclusion. Then Onassis, who needed Hughes’s signature until a computer could successfully reproduce it, parked Hughes on Skorpios, his private island in the Ionian Sea, turning Hughes into a junkie in order to force his compliance. Onassis then adopted Hughes’s “game plan” of buying up senators, judges, congressmen, governors, and major media organizations to take “legal” control of the government en masse for selfish advantage.

The Key states that Joseph Kennedy had “reminded Onassis of an old Mafia promise: the presidency for a Kennedy.” Onassis agreed but naturally expected the Kennedys to behave themselves and follow orders. As long as Joseph was directing their affairs, John and Bobby cooperated, but after the elder Kennedy suffered a stroke, his control ended. The brothers embodied new attitudes that sympathetic Americans considered innovative and bold but which detractors perceived as cavalier and arrogant. From the perspective of the Kennedys’ underworld sponsors, the brothers appeared ungrateful and renegade—Onassis angered that John Kennedy “welches” on a Mafia deal. “The rest, as they say, is history” the Key says. “Onassis was so confident of his control over police. media, FBI, CIA, Secret Service and the U.S. judicial system that he had JFK murdered before the eyes of the nation; then systematically bought off, killed off or frightened off all witnesses, and had the evidence destroyed; then put a 75-year seal of secrecy over the whole matter.”

There are several convincing motives for the Kennedys’ murders, and they are not mutually exclusive. In 1961 they had arrested the owner of Air Thailand, whose planes had been flying Onassis’s heroin out of Southeast Asia’s Golden Triangle; President Kennedy refused to provide air cover at the Bay of Pigs, infuriating the hawks who had arranged the invasion behind his back. Aggravating the situation, Kennedy fired cold warrior and intelligence community icon Allen Dulles as CIA director for lying to him about the Bay of Pigs operation; He supported a bill to revoke the oil depletion allowance, inspiring enmity from oil producers in states such as Texas; He challenged the privately owned and deceptively misnamed Federal Reserve System, essentially a central bank, by ordering the Department of Treasury to issue debt and interest-free currency called “United States Notes,” rather than debt-laden “Federal Reserve Notes.” As Attorney General, Robert Kennedy began prosecuting members of the Mafia; and President Kennedy intended to modify labor and tax laws so that previously exempt foreign ships could be taxed, presumably a significant issue for shipping tycoons like Onassis.

Interestingly, Allen Dulles had received help in forming the CIA from German spymaster Reinhard Gehlen—Adolph Hitler’s chief intelligence officer against the Soviet Union. Hawks in the US military-industrial complex shared the Nazis’ rabid ideological hatred of the Soviets, a perplexing attitude considering that without Russia the Allies would not have won World War 2.

Dulles largely controlled the Warren Commission, causing critics to question its impartiality and consequently the reliability of its conclusions. Perhaps even more significantly, President Kennedy had vowed to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” He formalized his intentions on October 11, 1963 by filing National Security Action Memorandum 263. His announcing that he intended to withdraw a thousand troops from Vietnam by the end of 1963 portended a profit-threatening end to the Vietnam War.

Consider the following two examples of claims made in the Skeleton Key that have been validated by subsequent historical developments. Referring to the John Kennedy assassination, the Key claims one of the shooters “went down a manhole and followed a sewer line away from Dealey Plaza.” Remember, this was written in 1975. In the 1990s I was watching a History Channel program called “The Men Who Killed Kennedy”—a segment featuring Tom Wilson, who had developed for US Steel a process called “photonics” to detect product imperfections. Wilson applied this new technology to photos in the Kennedy assassination, including the Mary Moorman photo, which she took almost simultaneously with the fatal head shot. Wilson constructed a three-dimensional model of Kennedy’s gaping rear head wound and from that traced back the path of the bullet, amazed to see it was coming “out of the ground.”

Wilson went to Dealey Plaza and discovered that the path he anticipated led directly to a manhole cover and storm drain. In other words, someone could have been crouching underground shooting at Kennedy from the street. Subsequent studies by a researcher named Jack Brazil have determined that shooters from behind the picket fence on the Grassy Knoll and from the curb on Elm Street could have “squeezed off rounds” and escaped underground in about twenty minutes. The sewer lines lead to the Trinity River well away from Dealey Plaza.

Here is another claim the Key makes that sounded unlikely to me in 1976: “Lots of heroin gets produced in a Pepsi Cola factory in Laos. So far, it hasn’t produced a single bottle of Pepsi Cola.” I hadn’t yet learned about the CIA’s “Air America” drug flights, but this was another truth that Roberts understood long before most of the herd. In 1990 Mel Gibson and Robert Downey, Jr. starred in a film called Air America. The film includes the Pepsi-Cola factory, the CIA, and the heroin. Details like these over the years make me believe that Bruce Roberts knew more than the average citizen about past history and current events. Eventually, Caruana trekked to San Francisco to meet Roberts—a story she details in her 2006 book, The Gemstone File: A Memoir—to validate what he was telling her. She intended to visit the various embassies Roberts had mentioned. If he had written to them as he claimed, his letters should be in their files.

“I wanted to know if Roberts was telling me the truth. He gave me a note that said, ‘This is my permission to let the bearer look at my letters,’” Caruana explained. “I didn’t succeed at first. The Russian Embassy threw me out, and believe me, I did not want to go. At that time you really didn’t just want to go marching up to the Russian consulate; it was the middle of the Cold War! The embassy of an Arab country didn’t cooperate either,” she said. Eventually, however, Caruana found the verification she had been seeking:

At the Norwegian Consulate there was this secretary who didn’t know what I was looking for. I just went up to her and said I’d like to read Bruce Roberts’ letters that he gave the embassy, and she said okay. So I had one day of joy of reading these letters, and it did a lot for me because then I knew he was telling me the truth as far as I could check it out, but he really did give letters to this consulate; they have them in a file folder! Then the next day I went back to get more of it, and as I said, it was those notes that I made on that first day that was the basis of the Gemstone Skeleton Key. I did them all in one afternoon. I had of course read the background of the 360 pages that Mae had, but I didn’t have a single one of those. I think I did a good job on it, and I know Bruce liked it. That was something that helped me a great deal.

A few days later I noticed that my phone had been tapped. I returned to the Norwegian consulate with my notebook, hoping to take more notes, but the consul told me I couldn’t read or take any more notes at the consulate. Then he told me he had spoken to Roberts, and had asked him about me. Roberts had suggested that he read the Playgirl article, and he had done so. Then he asked me whether I had read it. I told him I had written it. Then he pulled out another long new letter Bruce had just given him, and told me that since he had just received this letter from Roberts, and since he had not yet given it to the consulate library, it was still legally his property and he could legally give it to me to read. He offered to lend me the letter, which was an original letter, not a Xerox copy, and asked me to read the letter carefully, note whatever it said that pertained to Norway, and then return the original letter to him. I did that, made a copy of that letter, and returned the original letter to him. I originally prepared the Skeleton Key for my own use, but when Bruce called me in February, 1975 and told me he was sick and in the hospital, I decided to fight back on his behalf by releasing the Skeleton Key, as I did, in March 1975.

Caruana realized that people could easily get sidetracked in minutiae and miss the global picture, so she felt it was important to provide the public with a taste of Robert’s material that was accessible—somewhat organized, chronological, and cross-referenced. Robert’s writing style is repetitive, minutely detailed, and occasionally cryptic and manic. It demands much of the average reader. The Skeleton Key condenses and refines the ideas yet provides enough background to correlate seemingly unrelated events. Caruana reports that when she first gave Roberts a copy of the Key, he reacted by saying, “Why did you do that?” But not long after he was requesting copies to show people. Roberts could not have written the Key himself; he was too mired in the details and emotions of the story. Conversely, Caruana could write well but wasn’t overly invested in the material, which could compromise objectivity.

When Caruana first typed the Skeleton Key on her IBM Selectric typewriter, she included her name and address on the copy she Xeroxed and distributed. After that, however, the file was retyped, often by people who would add or delete parts according to their taste or bias, and these copies were reproduced thousands of times around the world with Caruana’s name missing. She has said she was never averse to having her name associated with the file, yet many who have read the Key don’t know she wrote it.

I acquired my first copy of “A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File” from my high school history teacher, Henry Denny, who now lives near Prescott, Arizona. Mr. Denny said he was shocked when he first read the Key because it contrasted so sharply with everything he’d learned and taught as a student and teacher of history. He couldn’t quite believe the Key was completely true, he said, but it did compel him to look more deeply.

“Bruce Roberts filled in a lot of gaps in many of the official reports. There were too many gaps in the Warren Commission Report, too many gaps in the other accounts of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. and so many others,” Denny said. “The Skeleton Key opened those avenues of inquiry for me to really investigate what went on. So much information Roberts mentions in the Skeleton Key has turned out to be accurate.”

While the claims made in the Skeleton Key are unsettling, I have always felt the document possesses an internal consistency that justifies our withholding immediate judgment and examining its details more closely. Bruce Roberts’ Gemstone letters, as conveyed to us by Stephanie Caruana, redefine the stereotypical definition of “Mafia,” the kind of caricature and even glorification we often see in media portrayals, and paint for us a truer picture that shows how deeply the roots of organized crime intertwine every aspect of US politics and culture. While I can’t say with certainty that “A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File” is completely true, I am convinced that it’s truthful.

33 Brilliant Non-Traditional Preps


Pick up any preparedness book or visit any preparedness website and you are bound to be inundated with ideas for getting yourself ready for an unexpected disruptive event.  After awhile, the eyes begin to glaze over as you realize that you are reading the same thing over and over again.

The good news is that if so many people are talking about something, it must be true, right?  For obvious reasons, I am going to leave that one alone for now.  Instead, I want to focus on the real life preps from regular folks who are walking the preppers walk.  By that I mean ordinary citizens, not authors, not bloggers, and not individuals that are out to make a name for themselves.

I am referring to Backdoor Survival readers.

As those of you that have been following this website know, to enter most giveaways there is a giveaway question designed to make you think.  Recently, the question asked was:

What is your favorite non-traditional prep? Be specific.

Some of the answers were indeed, great ideas and quite non-traditional. Others, while more commonplace, were preps that are often overlooked and worthy of repeating.  With that in mind, today I share some of the very best non-traditional preps from Backdoor Survival readers.

The Best Non-Traditional Preps from Backdoor Survival Readers

1.  Marbles!  I use them in my wrist-rocket slingshot. They make great ammo, cost little, and are seen as a toy for children, so they are not as likely to be stolen or confiscated. In addition they are of a uniform size and weight.

2.  I used sandbags to create a root cellar in my crawlspace. I could have used wood but didn’t want to attract bugs.  Since it’s above ground, I added a vent off our AC unit in order to cool it. It took nearly 6 months for the ground temp to come down but its very reasonable now in the summer!

3.  My prep that is not in the norm is my daughter’s blankets. I think that if something really happens, a little piece of home will be good for her. She has this specific type of blanket she likes.

4.  A whiteboard and markers. My autistic son will need this to understand a change in his schedule.

5.  Books on herb craft. I love using essential oils but if the SHTF then I would not have access to the oils after a while. So, I am growing herbs and learning how to use them fresh or dry.

6.  Dr. Bonners Castile soap. Because it is one of those items that has multiple uses, you clean everything from yourself (hair, teeth & skin) to your house and laundry. Multi use items are my favorite things to store.

7.  I have a couple of wind-up watches that don’t need batteries and a wind up alarm clock. When batteries run out and cell phones don’t work, there might be some comfort in still being able to tell time.  A solar-powered watch would also work.

8.  Journaling supplies. They will help me vent should the SHFT.

9.  A kindle or iPad for storing prepping info.  It would be impossible to store that many paper/hardback in a  limited space.

10.  Fabric in several types (flannel, cotton, wool etc.) plus patterns, scissors, needles, and thread! I also have a treadle sewing machine and yarn to knit/crochet sweaters and mittens and hats and socks.

11.  Over the years I have purchased many bags of feed for my critters. I save all the bags (they are heavy duty) to use as “dirt bags” to fill with dirt to line the insides of the walls in my home. A bullet will go through a normal wall very easily. A wall of dirt that is from 1 1/2 feet thick to 4 feet thick, depending on how you place them, will make an excellent protector.

12.  Plastic yogurt cups. They don’t have a top but I have saved them any way. They can be used to start seeds, as drinking cups, as candle holders, and many other things.

13.  I have a treadle sewing machine and quilting supplies so that I have something to work on and that can be used.

14. I am the family historian. So if/when you see a safe box in my home, the treasures it holds are my family history (some of which I have written) and family pictures going back many generations. I have hard copies, copies on flash drives and CDs stored in different places and of course in my BOB. Knowing the stories of my ancestors will keep others occupied during those crises times when calm is needed. We do have heroes in our own families. They may not be superheroes, but heroes nonetheless.

15.  My non-traditional prep is an extensive collection of games and kite making materials. Kids will take it fairly hard if something should happen.

16.  My grandmother’s cookbooks. There are a lot of “from scratch” recipes and ways of doing things, right down to how to prepare a chicken from the coop to the table.

17.  Carving tools.

18. My non-traditional item would be my essential oils kit. I know I can use these as alternatives for first-aid, hygiene, and stress relief.

19.  Books on foraging and how to use herbs and essential oils.

20.  My non traditional prep would be getting Lasik eye surgery done. In really bad conditions, eye glasses and definitely contact lenses will be non existent.

21.  I have printed almost every “from scratch” recipe I could find. If SHTF I want to be able to make bread, biscuits and as many other comfort foods as I can.

22.  Fire extinguishers.

23.  Free samples of diapers, incontinence products, saw blades – anything that I can get. I figure that when SHTF, I can find non-traditional uses for these things. Plus, every penny saved can go towards the traditional preps.

24.  Although you should not store drinking water in old milk bottles, I store water in them to refill the toilet tank for at least 3 days-till other arrangements can be set up.

25.  My only non-traditional is the WonderBag that I made for cooking. I got the idea off of the internet and it looked intriguing. I’ve only cooked in it a couple of times but it works great.

26.  I have been collecting board games & card games.  Thrift stores have had a LOT in like new condition with all the pieces & instructions. Also jigsaw puzzles. When the “apps” go out along with the lights, we’ll need some R&R to recover from all the “new” hard work we’ll be doing.

27.  I began collecting crossword and word search puzzles. I also buy pencils at the dollar store every time  go.

28. One of my non-traditional preps has got to be the cloth diapers and accompanying accessories. We have several young adult children (still having kids) in my family and having learned when I was younger to have cloth diapers on hand will be a boon to the young mothers when they can’t get “plastic” diapers.

29.  A French press for making coffee.

30. My non-traditional prep would have to be my walker. I can use a cane as well but my walker would allow me to go further and a bit faster plus it gives me a place to sit and rest when needed and it has a small basket for some additional gear.

31. I would have to say that our non-traditional prepping item would our distiller for water and making alcohol (for barter, of course!).

32. Travel books with lots of pictures, so you can travel in your armchair since there won’t be any more ways to travel.  Also, a world map.

33. My faith and Bible!! Also theology books.

The Final Word

When I am asked where my ideas and knowledge comes from, I typically respond with “anywhere and everywhere”.  Seriously, my knowledge and inspiration comes from a variety of sources: first hand experience, books, online forums and of course, Backdoor Survival readers.

The bottom line is not that I am smarter or more clever than everyone else.  On the other hand, I have taken my passion for preparedness and made it an active part of my life.  There is life on the other side and I want to be there to live it with gusto.

A special thank you to all of the readers that made this article possible.  As always, make every day a prep day!

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

Why Do Rockefellers Aim At Destroying Farmers Worldwide?


By: F. William Engdahl | New Eastern Outlook –

For the better part of the past century Western pop culture has systematically denigrated and devalued what should be the most honored profession of all. Those who labor with the land, day-in and day-out, to deliver the food that we eat have assumed a social status too often similar to the dirt of the soil they till. No one stops to ask a simple question: What do we do when we have killed off all our farmers?

Some of the more naïve city-dwellers would retort with little reflection, “But we have industrialized food production; we don’t need manual farm labor today.”

Indeed, the numbers are impressive.

Let’s take my homeland, the United States of America. In 1950, a time of general prosperity and strong economic growth, the total US population was 151,132,000 and the farm population was 25,058,000 making farmers just over 12% of the total labor force. There were 5,388,000 farms with an average size of about 87 hectares. Forty years later, in 1990, the year the Soviet Union collapsed and the Cold War ended, the USA had a total population of 261,423,000 of which the farm population numbered just under three million, 2,987,552, making farmers a mere 2.6% of the total labor force. The number of farms had shrunk to only 2,143,150, a loss of 60%, but because of industrial concentration, average size was 187 hectares.

Rockefeller’s Agribusiness Revolution

What we are told, those of us whose relation to meat, dairy, fruits and vegetables ends at the supermarket, is that this is a great progress, the liberation of almost 23 million farm workers to get city jobs and live a better life.

It isn’t that simple.

We are not told the true effects on food quality that has been created by the mechanization and industrialization of food production in America since the Harvard Business School, on a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, began what they termed “agribusiness,” the conversion of our food supply into a pure for-profit vertically integrated business modelled on the Rockefeller oil cartel.

The raising of hogs, dairy cows, beef cattle, chicken all became industrialized gradually after the 1950’s in the USA. The baby chicks were confined to spaces so tiny they could barely stand. To make them get fat faster, the owners would pump them full of antibiotics and feed them a diet of GMO corn and soya meal. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, 80 percent of all antibiotics sold in the United States are for use on livestock and poultry, not humans. The majority are given to animals mixed in their food or water to speed growth. After all, time is money.

The traditional family farmer, of the sort my late grandfather was in North Dakota prior to the First World War, was driven largely from the land by USDA Government policy, policy that favored industrialization regardless of the quality of food nutrient that resulted. Tractors became computerized, mammoth machines driven by GPS. One such tractor could work remotely and do the work of many farmers of old.

The result was financially fabulous….for the industry owners—ADM, Cargill, Monsanto, for the packagers like Kraft Foods, Kelloggs, Nestle, Unilever, Toepfer, Maggi. The American Rockefeller-Harvard “agribusiness” business model was globalized, beginning with the GATT negotiations of the Uruguay Round of trade liberalization in the late 1980s where the EU dropped much of its traditional protection of domestic farmers in favor of free trade in agriculture products.

During the late 1980’s as the Uruguay Round of GATT trade negotiations was about to give US agribusiness giants what they wanted—freedom to rape the EU and other protected agriculture markets with their highly efficient products, to destroy millions of EU farmers who had farmed with a passion for generations, I went to Brussels to make a background interview as a journalist with a high-level EU Commission bureaucrat responsible for agriculture. He was an apparently well-educated, multi-lingual bureaucrat, Danish-born as he noted. He argued in defense of free trade by declaring, “Why should I pay taxes from Denmark so that Bavarian farmers on their tiny plots of land can remain in business?”

The answer, which I kept to myself then, was simply because the traditional family farmer is uniquely suited to mediate with nature and us to produce food that is healthy for humans and animals to eat. No machine can replace the personal dedication or passion that I have seen again and again in every farmer I have met who truly cares about his livestock or crops.

Now the very same very rich and very loveless people, I call them the American Oligarchs, are systematically doing everything to destroy the human food quality. Clearly in my view, they are doing so with a goal of mass population reduction. There is no other reason the Rockefeller Foundation would spend hundreds of millions of (tax exempt) dollars to create GMO techniques, to support Monsanto and other chemical giants like DuPont, clearly knowing they are slowly poisoning the population to an early death.

Depressing pesticides

This has been demonstrated in independent tests regarding the toxic effects on animals and even human cells in an embryo. Now, independent even of GMO crops, new tests show that ordinary pesticide chemicals sprayed by farm workers or farmers on crops cause neurological damage—depression, Parkinsons’ and even suicide—to the farmers or farm workers using the deadly chemicals.

The US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in their landmark Agricultural Health Study studied a group of 89,000 farmers and other pesticide applicators in Iowa and North Carolina. The mammoth study concluded that, “use of two pesticide classes, fumigants and organochlorine insecticides, and seven individual pesticides—the fumigants aluminum phosphide and ethylene dibromide; the phenoxy herbicide (2,4,5-trichlorophenoxy)acetic acid (2,4,5-T); the organochlorine insecticide dieldrin; and the organophosphate insecticides diazinon, malathion, and parathion—were all positively associated with depression in each case group.”

The study showed that farmers with the highest number of lifetime exposure days to pesticides were 50 percent more likely to later have a depression diagnosis.

The research linked long-term use of pesticides to higher rates of depression and suicide. Evidence also suggests that pesticide poisoning – a heavy dose in a short amount of time – doubles the risk of depression.

After suppressing the effects among farm families for years about the resulting depression and related neurological symptoms, farmers and their families have begun speaking out. Lorann Stallones, an epidemiologist and psychology professor at Colorado State University says, “There’s been a shift – partly because there’s more people talking about being mentally incapacitated.”

Epidemiologist Freya Kamel and her colleagues reported that among 19,000 studied, “those who used two classes of pesticides and seven individual pesticides were more likely to have been diagnosed with depression. Those who used organochlorine insecticides were up to 90 percent more likely to have been diagnosed with depression than those who hadn’t used them. For fumigants, the increased risk was up to 80 percent.

In France, farmers who used herbicides were nearly twice as likely to have been treated for depression as those who didn’t use herbicides, according to a study published in 2013. The study of 567 French farmers found that the risk was even greater when the herbicide applicators had been doing it for more than 19 years.

In short, we are destroying the nutritional value of the food we eat and slowly destroying the remaining farmers responsible for cultivating that. It is a recipe for the ultimate extinction of life on the planet as we know it. No, that is not an exaggeration.

I firmly believe that honest, nature-conscious organic farmers ought to receive significant tax breaks to encourage other farmers to leave the grotesque agribusiness model behind and return to growing or raising honest food again as they did only a few short decades ago. And severely high taxation ought to be imposed on farmers who use proven toxic chemicals like Roundup by Monsanto or the neonicotinoids like Bayer AG’s Confidor, Gaucho or Advocate, or Poncho, or Syngenta’s Actara, Platinum or Cruiser to name just the most sold.

Right now our regulators in the EU and USA do everything to discourage that, something actually quite stupid, unless, of course, some loveless, power-addicted oligarchs sitting atop their mountain, looking contemptuously down on us normal folk, have decided that’s just what they desire. If so, it’s up to us to stop looking up to those on the mountain and look at what we ourselves have accepted as normal, that is slowly killing us and the farmers who feed us. Maybe the time has come to change that unhealthy situation.
