Obama Removes TPP’s Anti-Slavery Clause, Then Attacks Confederate Flag As “Symbol Of Slavery”

Hypocrisy: Obama defends slavery, then attacks rebel flag for ties to slavery.

Right before he publicly attacked the Confederate flag as a “symbol of slavery,” President Obama quietly removed an anti-slavery provision from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement.

“The provision, which bars countries that engage in slavery from being part of major trade deals with the U.S., was written by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.),” the Huffington Post reported in May. “At the insistence of the White House, Menendez agreed to modify his language to say that as long as a country is taking ‘concrete’ steps toward reducing human trafficking and forced labor, it can be part of a trade deal.”

“Under the original language, the country that would be excluded from the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership pact is Malaysia.”

Malaysia is a major hub for human trafficking in Southeast Asia, with enslaved men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking, according to the State Dept.

“Why, in the year 2015, is the White House teaming up with Republican leaders essentially to defend the practice of slavery?” The Huffington Post added.

It was only a month later that President Obama attacked the Confederate flag as a “symbol of slavery.”

“[Removing the flag] would not be an insult to the valor of Confederate soldiers; it would simply be an acknowledgment that the cause for which they fought — the cause of slavery — was wrong,” he said during a June 26 eulogy in Charleston, S.C.

In other words, Obama defended slavery when it benefitted the TPP, but then attacked the Confederate flag for its historic link to slavery because it was politically expedient.

 

Obamacare Is A Public Requiem By Supreme Decree

coletoon_obamacare-11-16
“The Congressional Record will forever show that [Obamacare] was passed in a romper room of overgrown children seemingly barely old enough to keep from peeing on themselves.” –Matt Taibbi

Do you have an absolute right to refuse medical treatment? Well, if you recognize the immutable authority of natural rights, you must defend the birthright of individuals to reject the quackery of government-imposed medicine. Common law clearly discerns that there are limits on the power of governments to force human beings into becoming pinned up sheep, against their will. Already far too many cowardly citizens are eager to comply with the next dictate of a tyrannical regime. Subsequently, when the death panels summon you into their diagnostic pool of drugs, why would you want to accept the pharmaceutical prescription for a controlled and managed demise?

Obamacare is unmistakably a tax. If government levees a tariff on a taxpayer, that is not news. However, when inclusion into a collectivist system of government medicine becomes mandatory, the life essence of individual will is sucked out of the body of an immortal spirit.

The legality of the mandates is up for grabs by a tribunal of Star Chamber jurists. The sideshow about recusal, rivals reality TV programming and confuses the constitutional illiterates. Solicitor General Elena Kagan, in all her glory, conveyed her delight. “I hear they have the votes, Larry!! Simply amazing,” Kagan said to Harvard Law Prof. Laurence Tribe in one of the emails.

obamacareCNSnews reports,

“The March 2010 email exchange between Kagan and Tribe raises new questions about whether Kagan must recuse herself from judging cases involving the health-care law that Obama signed–and which became the target of legal challenges–while Kagan was serving as Obama’s solicitor general and was responsible for defending his administration’s positions in court disputes.

According to 28 USC 455, a Supreme Court justice must recuse from “any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.” The law also says a justice must recuse anytime he has “expressed an opinion concerning the merits of the particular case in controversy” while he “served in governmental employment.”

The argument made by the Nation that Justice Clarence Thomas must recuse himself from any ruling on the Affordable Care Act, because of his wife’s work as a conservative activist and lobbyist, where she specifically agitated for the repeal of “Obamacare”, conveniently ignores reality. Kagan was the person appointed to represent the federal government before the Supreme Court of the United States. Thomas was not a lobbyist. The difference should be self-evident for any objective observer.

The essential question never asked is how a nation of inherent autonomous individuals, would allow a politicized court to rule on natural human right authority. Your right to refuse inclusion into a medical insurance scheme, designed for gently leading you down death’s road, is inalienable. Obamacare is a question of exercising the right NOT to participate, much less about forced tribute to pay for the costs of hypochondriacs, who believe physicians are gracious drug pushers.

The electorate made their voice heard in the 2010 elections. The Tea Party eruption was largely a spontaneous repudiation of Obamacare. Criticism of the 112th Congress should be directed against the House for not having the guts to issue and vote upon articles of impeachment against the pretender president, who is bent on destroying the civil rights of mentally healthy citizens.

So why is the nation suffering from the tyranny of the inflicted? Wendell Potter, a former CIGNA executive-turned-whistleblower, lays out the reason in plain simple language.

“Opponents of the Affordable Care Act who believe the Supreme Court will declare the law unconstitutional are going to be disappointed next year when a majority of the nine justices vote to uphold it. It will likely be a 5-4 decision, but moderate conservative Anthony Kennedy will, I’m confident, recognize that without the law, the free-market system of health insurance, so highly valued by conservatives, will implode, sooner rather than later.

Here’s the reality. The provision of Obamacare at the heart of the constitutional challenge — the requirement that all Americans will have to buy health insurance if they’re not eligible for a public plan like Medicare or Medicaid — is a “must have” for the nation’s health insurance industry.”

If conservatives really value a free-market health insurance system, by what claim of legitimacy can court dictums be imposed, upon individuals who rationally and willfully refuse to be part of that medical injection revolving door treatment? A free-market business, especially the medicine cartel, needs to re-invent itself, not seek government imposed guaranteed funding subsidies.

In the NBC video report, the prospects that some conservative justices may well uphold this new expansion of government fiat into the lives of Americans is chilling. Jay Sekulow on MSNBC Discussing ObamaCare at the Supreme Court asks the question: Where will it stop? Expanding brand new federal powers is not an authentic conservative viewpoint.

The supreme decree for public enslavement that Obamacare represents, does not originate with the decision from the Supreme Court. It comes from the pathological sickness of the Nanny State, accepted by millions of intellectual cripples and self-absorbed government syncopates, looking for a bigger welfare check. Just maybe self-reliant folks, who go to great pains to live a healthy lifestyle, just do not want to be part of the medical meat grinder.

Reality Check: ObamaCare & Death Panels by Raven Clabough provides an update.

“Democrats found a way to achieve their goal by way of regulation instead, introduced by Obama Medicare chief Dr. Donald Berwick. A new Medicare regulation implemented on January 1, 2011 pays doctors to advise patients on options for end-of-life care, which includes advanced directives to forego aggressive life-sustaining treatment.

In addition to the end-of-life Medicare rule, state governments are implementing “death panels” of sorts to help handle their budget woes.”

Now view contracting positions on the impact of this reality in the video, Obamacare Death Panels Are Back!!! Even if you dismiss the prediction that Obamacare makes a concerted effort to rush your demise and hasten your mortality, prospects of arbitrary rationing are inevitable.

Dr. Donald J. Palmisano writes in the Washington Times,

grim reaper“With Medicare’s trustees predicting the Medicare program will go bankrupt in 2024 – five years earlier than was projected before the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – even Americans who strongly supported Obamacare have little choice but to acknowledge that Medicare must be reformed – and soon. While lawmakers continue to argue about the best way to protect this vital program for the seniors it serves and those who it has yet to serve, there is a growing bipartisan consensus that the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) is one provision of the new health law that will do more to undermine the program than save it.

Unfortunately, most people in the country, including seniors relying on Medicare, have no idea what IPAB is or how it will affect their lives if it ever becomes operational. More concerning, President Obama decided to make the board the centerpiece of his efforts to reduce the deficit by calling for it to be strengthened – not eliminated. Starting in 2015, the IPAB will give 15 unelected bureaucrats unprecedented power to slash billions of dollars from Medicare when spending exceeds targeted growth rates. The cuts made by the board will come on top of the $500 billion that was transferred from Medicare to a new entitlement program as a result of the new health care law.”

Add to this discretionary allocation, the revolting practice of exceptions. The issuance of waivers from the law to political favorites or “too big to fail” conglomerates, is blatantly a violation of equal protection. Yet, in the hologram construct that passes for lawful government, the whims of class warfare, becomes the standard for this abhorrent Obama administration. The favoritism of the corporate/state economy at the expense of main street free enterprise is as vivid as it has even been. The working poor and the self-employed can kiss their economic future goodbye. Obama wants the middle class to suck it up and become dependent parasites, in the brave new world of coerced medical experimentation.

The social fascists that bleed for universal health care, provided by a single payer bureaucracy are fundamentally statists. Strategies for repeal are weak and remote. Nina Owcharenko in Repealing Obamacare and Getting Health Care Right, describes accurately the problem but is unrealistic for a political solution.

“Congress must repeal the new law. Congress cannot build sound market-based health care reform on the PPACA foundation, which is utterly incompatible with a health care system based on consumer choice and free markets.

Beyond the unprecedented mandates, new taxes, massive entitlement expansion, unworkable and costly insurance provisions, and its failure to control costs, the new law concentrates enormous power in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). It creates a giant network for the federal micromanagement of health plans, benefits, insurance markets, and unprecedented intervention into the details of health care financing and the delivery of medical care.”

Repeal of Obamacare is justified. However, the supreme decree that enacted the original legislation comes from an inept and illicit political class. They will resist to the death, retracting their handy work. Even with new replacement legislators, the executive administration envisions a new cash cow for milking. If the Supreme Court upholds the constitutionality of Obamacare, your duty is to opt out of the government medial payment system. Encourage the implosion, or resign to total enslavement. This is your terminal and only existential choice.

Don’t Look For Freedom Of Expression In Ecuador

EMPLEADOS Y PARTIDARIOS DEL DIARIO EL UNIVERSO PROTESTAN CONTRA CONDENA

Two years ago Ecuador declared the end of Free Speech after passing a new law called the Communications Act, which allows the government to establish what information is allowed in the media and this information can be published.

Since the passing of the law, the Superintendency of Communication, the official agency that oversees alleged media violations has sanctioned 198 media outlets. This agency has also passed 506 resolutions and take on 313 processes, of which 185 have translated into economic sanctions that resulted in the collection of $ 201,596.

In addition to the sanctions, media have also had to publish article “corrections” imposed on the by the Ecuadorian government, in which the media reluctantly accepts alleged mistakes in the reporting, but that in reality are news reports loaded with government written information.

In Ecuador, the media not only cannot freely research and publish their own reports, but they also must print whatever material the government sends them. In a recent case, The Ministry of Communications sent out to newspapers a draft of its new list of taxes and policies referring to reforms of the Social Security Act for its immediate publication.

The situation has been described as abusive and authoritarian by many advocates of freedom of the press, including the Ecuadorian Association of Newspaper Editors. According to critics, the same type of practices now being imposed on newspapers had already been pushed on television channels and and radio stations.

“Now they have discovered that they can impose content to newspapers,” said Mauricio Alarcon, from the Andean Foundation for the Observation and Study of Media, which is considered to be abusing the right of correction and reply to impose content and media subjects.

“Upon receipt of the texts, newspapers must publish  the content as is, as diagrammed by government and with the exact headlines, epithets and insults against the medium itself.”

The government produced wording is not hidden, and for those who attempt to publish real news, the constraints to work increases every day. This week, a newspaper called the Daily Express reported that for interviews with secretaries of state they had been asked to sed the resumes of the reporters who would interview the government representatives.

“Of course we will not deliver the resumes. If they grant the interviews we will have them, but if they refuse, then it will be too bad.” Apparently, in 99% of cases such interviews are not granted which is seen by media editors as an attempt by the government to censor the media.

“I think this is a clear attempt to try to silence newspapers, harass us so that at the end we stop publishing anything for fear of getting into a legal fight or a financial penalty,” said Jorge Sánchez, editor at the Expreso.

“After 24 months of application of the law, there is more freedom of expression than ever in Ecuador,” says Carlos Ochoa,  the head of the Superintendency of Communication.

Ochoa reinforced the fact that since October 2013, when his office was founded, 506 processes have been made and 313 resolutions have been issued, of which 185 were economic sanctions, as if dissent is supposed to be punished by law.

Is Charleston Shooting A Trojan Horse For Internet Censorship?

censored

In a democratic system where political leaders are purportedly responsive to public opinion a pretext must be presented in order to introduce policies that are seen by the majority as controversial or undesirable. News coverage of the Charleston Church shooting over the past several days suggests how a storyline is being shaped by corporate news media and political leaders to lay the groundwork for intensified government regulation of online speech.

daily news roofOn February 26, 2015 the Federal Communications Commission passed a substantial policy document increasing its authority over the web. Such control could potentially be imposed to circumvent First Amendment protections of free speech by targeting websites based on their political perspectives and content.

The Charleston shooting narrative now being drummed in to the public mind maintains that Dylann Roof carried out his heinous act after having been “radicalized” by reading conservative “right wing” political websites. He consequently became filled with “hate” and morphed into a sinister “lone wolf terrorist.”

As ABC News reports:

Investigators believe that the man accused of fatally shooting nine people in a historic Charleston church last week was “self-radicalized,” … meaning that he was not believed to be part of a hate group, and acted alone as well.

That hasn’t stopped investigators from serving subpoenas to internet and telecommunications companies. In doing so, it will allow investigators to recreate the 21-year-old’s entire digital footprint.

Much as the Sandy Hook massacre scenario emphasized Adam Lanza’s wayward parenting and learning disabilities to sell the American public on mandatory mental health screenings for school children, so the antagonist of the Charleston church shooting is plagued by exposure to “radicalizing” content via the internet.

CNN, the UK Guardian and the New York Daily News appear to be the foremost media outlets shaping the Dylann Roof infected by “hate” meme initially preferred by the Southern Poverty Law Center. A cursory LexisNexis search for “‘Dylann Roof’ and hate” for the dates June 17 to June 21 yields 320 print articles and 197 broadcast transcripts since June 17.

True to form, even before funeral arrangements could be made for the slain, the Obama administration and its allies had begun waving the bloody shirt for gun control. It may soon be doing so to impose fines on or outright censor websites that may “radicalize” impressionable minds in order to save us from ourselves.  The exercise of prior restraint of expression against any party regardless of their espoused and articulated views is fundamentally unconstitutional and antithetical to America’s core values.

Among other freedoms slowly but surely taken away since September 11, 2001, online speech and a free internet are in jeopardy as never before, to a significant degree because particularly in times of crisis much of the US public are too quick to allow the major corporate media and punditocracy to do their thinking for them.

30 Items Every Prepper Should Carry When Traveling

30-Items-Every-Prepper-Should-Carry-While-Traveling

This is the time of year when families travel to visit friends and relatives near and far.  When taking a road trip, it is easy to throw a bug-out-bag and extra food and clothing into the trunk of your car but what if you are traveling by air?  Not only do you have those pesky baggage weight limits to deal with, but you also have the scrutiny and probing eyes (and sometimes hands) of the TSA to avoid.

Can you imagine what might happen if you showed up at the airport with a fully stocked survival kit?  I am being just a wee bit facetious but these days, you can never be too sure what will happen if someone decides to label you as a prepper.

TSA notwithstanding, today I would like to share a reminder that no matter where you go, you should include some basic preps in your carry-on or in your check-through luggage so that no matter what, you will be prepared to deal with bumps along your journey.

Here in list form, and in no particular order, is a list of 30 items every prepper should carry when traveling.

Survival Items You Should Carry When Traveling

1. A wise traveler not only carries a passport, but also a photocopy of the passport and a scanned version on a laptop, CD, or flash drive.

2. Your health insurance or Medicare card.

3. Your driver’s license, proof of car insurance, and the 24 hour claims number for your insurance company.

4. Two credits cards housed in two different places (in case one gets lost or is stolen) along with the customer service numbers for the credit card companies written down and stored someplace other than your wallet.  You might want to consider RFID sleeves for your credit cards.

5. A list of emergency contacts, including telephone numbers and email addresses.

6. A prepaid long distance card for making calls when there is no cell phone service or when the calls will be too expensive due to roaming charges.

7. A few blank checks or traveler’s checks plus some funds in the local currency (if you are traveling out of the country).

8. Prescription medications with at least 3 days over and above the number of days you plan to be gone.

9. An emergency first aid kit including bandages, pain medication, instant hot/cold packs, antibiotic ointment, lavender essential oil, an anti-diarrheal, allergy medication, heartburn medication, and anything else that you commonly use.

10. Insect repellent or essential oil alternative.

11. Sunscreen.

12. Protein or snack bars.

13. Travel tissues and a travel sized roll of TP (you would be surprised at how often this “essential” will come in handy.)

14. Baby wipes or my favorite, No Rinse Bathing Wipes.  You can wash up pretty well with these in the event you can’t take an actual shower.

15. Hand sanitizer plus sanitizer wipes (Those tray tables on planes are horrifyingly filthy – this article says they very frequently are the home for fecal matter.)

16. A mini, LED flashlight and possibly an LED headlamp as well.

17. Pocket knife or Swiss Army-style knife. (This will have to go in your checked luggage)

18. Chemical light sticks.

19. An emergency whistle. This Windstorm Safety Whistle is my favorite,.

20. Paracord in bracelet, keychain, or lanyard form for portability.

21. Water purification tabs for ensuring safe, drinkable water if supplies at your destination are compromised.

22. A portable water filter and pouch, like this Sawyer Mini kit.  The pouch takes up very little space when empty but would give you a clean container for your filtered drinking water in an emergency.

23. A small roll of duct tape and some tie wraps (also called cable wraps).

24. Mylar emergency blankets.

25. A pocket poncho for every member of your group.

26. Protective masks to wear when seated near obviously sick people (coughing and sneezing) while using public transportation.

27. Batteries (or rechargeables plus a battery charger).

28. Your cell phone charger or a USB cable to use as a charging cable.

29. Key passwords to access email accounts and online financial data.

30. Pre-printed labels with your home address, home phone number, and email address. Include one or more of these labels in each checked bag.

Extra Credit Bonus Items for the Traveler

As a proponent of essential oils, I travel with a small pouch containing my most important oils including Shield (a thieves like protective blend), lavender, and melaleuca (tea tree).  I also carry some DIY Cold and Flu Bomb and DIY Anti-Viral Sanitizing Spray.

Something else I carry with me is a tin containing a portable survival kit.  This portable kit contains a number of the items I would normally have in my travel kit but has the added advantage of allowing me to throw it in my pack or handbag while I am out and about at my destination.  You can put your own emergency kit in a tin together.  You will find some ideas in the article 8 Essential Items: The Perfect Portable Survival Kit.

Another bonus item is solar lighting. I throw both a solar lantern and my SunJack LightStick in my bag. They are not as small and portable as a flashlight, but they operate without batteries and can be used in a variety of situations to provide an abundance of light as well as emergency signaling.

Since everyone’s needs are different, you might find some additional ideas for your travel kit in the article Don’t Fly Without These 20 TSA-Approved Items in Your Prepper’s Carry-on Bag.

Here some some air travel tips from Daisy Luther, the author of that article:

Pay attention to the flight attendant. Aren’t you going to feel kind of stupid if the plane crashes and you have no idea where the nearest exit is? Take 2 minutes out of your life to listen when the flight attendant goes over the safety information.

Dress appropriately. Whenever I see fellow passengers wearing flip-flops, high heels, or other inappropriate footwear, I cringe. You should always wear shoes that are sturdy and comfortable enough for a long distance hike. As well, clothing items made from natural fibers are less flammable and more breathable. Cover as much of your exposed skin as possible by wearing long pants and sleeves.

Wear your carry-on bag. That well-packed carry-on bag isn’t going to do you much good if you don’t have it with you.  To keep your hands free for other tasks, I recommend a backpack or cross-body bag for your most important survival items.

Bring snacks.  I always pack things like Clif bars, nuts, and dried fruit.  The more snacks you have, the longer you can wait before eating your fellow passengers, Andes-soccer-team style.

The Final Word

There is nothing remarkable about this list and, as a matter of fact, it is fairly mundane and undoubtedly includes things you routinely pack along as a matter of course.  Still, if there is just one item you have overlooked – and you need that item – you will be happy to have it along to help you out of a jam or to make your journey more secure.

And just for the record?  I pack all of these items and a whole lot more when I travel.  I can get by with just a couple of pairs of shoes but not without my preps. You just never know.

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

Texas Clinics Turning Away Unvaccinated Children

austin-regional-clinic

By: Adan Salazar | Infowars.com

Hippocratic oath takes backseat to Big Pharma inoculation program.

A network of clinics in Texas has issued new guidelines asserting their facilities will no longer take children as patients if they have not been vaccinated.

Austin Regional Clinic, the largest healthcare provider network in the Central Texas region serving close to half a million residents, announced today they will begin prohibiting children who are not up to date on vaccine requirements from being seen by doctors starting tomorrow.

“The physicians and staff at Austin Regional Clinic support immunizations,” a statement on the ARC site says. “If you plan not to immunize your child, we prefer that you choose another practice. We do not want to place the rest of our patients at risk of contracting vaccine-preventable illnesses.”

“Parents who are unwilling to commit to a vaccination schedule will need to find another physician outside of ARC,” a press release states.

The ARC’s recommended vaccine schedule lists at least 21 innoculations infants should receive before the first year of age, many of which can admittedly cause severe adverse reactions – including death – largely in part to the ease by which toxicants can permeate children’s underdeveloped blood-brain barriers.

Notably, the list also recommends children receive a dose of Merck’s controversial Gardasil vaccine by age nine, despite reports that hundreds of young women in the US have died, and tens of thousands have been harmed by it. “Routine dosing intervals are recommended,” a handout from the clinic states.

Specifically, the clinic says parents may be confused about vaccines due to “misinformation in the media and on biased websites.”

Perhaps they find it biased to point out the fact that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has, via a secretive, letigious network of courts, paid out nearly $3 billion to families who’ve suffered death or other debilitating side effects as a result of vaccines.

Russ Krienke, ARC’s chief medical officer, said the decision was based on ensuring the “facilities are safe” for all of its visiting patients.

“[W]hile we respect the right of families to make their own choices for their children, we also respect the trust our patients put in us to ensure the safety of all, and our policies must honor that trust,” Krienke said.

The clinic’s announcement follows passage of California’s SB 277 mandatory vaccination bill, which forces all public school attendees be up to date on their vaccine requirements as mandated by the state’s department of public health.

Obamacare Travesty: The Supreme Court Continues To Make Stuff Up Out Of Thin Air

Supreme-Court-Public-Domain-460x345

Thanks to the Supreme Court’s willingness to make stuff up, Obamacare has been saved once again.  In order to save Obamacare from utter disaster, Chief Justice Roberts essentially rewrote the law.  If you are thinking that the Supreme Court is not supposed to do that, you would be right.  But this is what our judicial system has devolved into.  When I was in law school, I was horrified to discover that most judges in our country just do whatever they feel like doing.  Instead of applying the law to the facts and coming to a fair and unbiased judgment, most judges in America just do whatever they want to do and then search for some law or case precedent that they can use to justify their decision.  If there is no law or case precedent, some federal judges even go outside of the country to find justification for their absolutely ridiculous rulings.  There have been instances where international law or international standards of morality have been cited as authority for a decision in a federal case.  We have become a lawless land where the letter of the law no longer holds any real meaning, and where tyrannical judges just make stuff up out of thin air in order to advance their own personal political agendas.

This decision on Obamacare should have been quite straightforward for the court.  The following is how Business Insider described the key issue in this case…

The case revolved around the interpretation of a phrase that stated that healthcare exchanges must be “established by the State” in order to receive tax credits. Scalia said that he was baffled that the majority of the justices could interpret this to mean that the federal government could give tax credits in states where exchanges weren’t established by the state.

“Words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State is ‘established by the State.’ It is hard to come up with a clearer way to limit tax credits to state Exchanges than to use the words ‘established by the State,’” Scalia said.

That sounds pretty basic, right?

“Established by the state” should mean “established by the state”?

In his dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia scolded the court for discarding all usual rules of interpretation in order to preserve Obamacare…

“Under all the usual rules of interpretation, in short, the government should lose this case. But normal rules of interpretation seem always to yield to the overriding principle of the present court: The Affordable Care Act must be saved.”

To say that Scalia was upset by this decision would be a massive understatement.  He says that this ridiculous decision will be “remembered through the years” and that it sends a message that “the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites”…

“But this Court’s two decisions on the Act will surely be remembered through the years. The somersaults of statutory interpretation they have performed (‘penalty’ means tax, ‘further [Medicaid] payments to the State’ means only incremental Medicaid payments to the State, ‘established by the State’ means not established by the State) will be cited by litigants endlessly, to the confusion of honest jurisprudence. And the cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”

Near the end of his dissent, he chided his fellow justices for rewriting Obamacare in order to save it, and he suggested that this law should now be referred to as “SCOTUScare”…

“This Court revised major components of the statute in order to save them from unconstitutionality.… We should start calling this law SCOTUScare.”

Normally, at the end of a dissenting opinion it is traditional for a Supreme Court justice to state “I respectfully dissent”.

But this time, Scalia simply ended with “I dissent”.

That may not seem like much to you, but in the legal world that is extremely significant.

Of course Obama was absolutely thrilled by this Obamacare decision.  The following comes from CBS News

President Obama commended a Supreme Court ruling that upheld a major portion of the Affordable Care Act on Thursday, hailing the decision as a vindication of his push for health care reform – and a clear signal to the law’s opponents that it’s time to give up the ghost.

“As the dust has settled, there can be no doubt this law is working,” the president said in a brief speech from the White House Rose Garden. “After multiple challenges to this law before the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay. This morning, the court upheld a critical part of this law – the part that’s made it easier for Americans to afford health insurance no matter where you live.”

This all makes me very sad.  Our law schools have become indoctrination centers for progressivism.  Our law students are being taught that the U.S. Constitution is a “living, breathing document” and that courts should determine what the best end result of a case should be and then figure out the best way to justify that decision.

Our law schools are some of the most liberal institutions in the entire country.  This is true even in the most “conservative” states.  Over the past several decades, graduates of these law schools have flooded the legal system and now dominate the judiciary on every level.

Yes, we can elect a new president and many new members of Congress in 2016, but changing the judiciary would literally take generations to accomplish.  That is why so many prominent voices are increasingly speaking out about “the tyranny of the judiciary”.  We have hordes of activist judges running around doing pretty much anything that they feel like doing.  It truly is a national crisis.

On a day to day basis, Barack Obama and Congress get a tremendous amount of criticism (and rightly so), but our judicial branch is also deeply, deeply corrupt and it would be much, much harder to fix.

Over the next few days, several more very important Supreme Court decisions will be announced.  And without a doubt, we should expect to see the “justices” continue to make stuff up out of thin air.

If our founding fathers could see what was happened to the Supreme Court that they created, they would be rolling over in their graves.

French Spying Double Standard

No one likes to be the subject of surveillance, but the fact is that we all are. But France is a special case, as was Germany a few months ago. Neither of these two Eurpean countries enjoys being snooped on by the NSA, but they do exercise their own power to spy with unlimited might on their own citizens.

After leaked documents revealed that the United States had spied on German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, and after the US denied such practice in a categorical way, we now know that the NSA also spied on the last three French presidentes. This, of course has also been denied by the US presidente, Barack Obama.

The French were not pleased after they learned they had been, as a government, spied on by the US, however, the very own French Parliament, with the collaboration of Prime Minister Manuel Valls, now has thrown its support behind a new spying bill that has no legal limits whatsoever.

The initiative to allow full spying capabilities on anyone and without judicial controls was presented and promoted by Valls himself two months ago and the French Parliament gave the green light to establish the same kind of spying practices seen in Police States such as the United States to be used indiscrimnately.

The justification for giving the French government a blank check on surveillance without any kind of oversight is the same that other governments have given since 9/11: “National Security and the need to protect the Homeland”.

The controversial French law enables massive telephone and cyber tracking of data without judicial control now that the National Assembly approved amendments to favor the proposal which politicians in France say is “essential” to the government, but suicidal to its detractors, which include various human rights organizations.

The debate coincided with the scandal emerged after the confirmation that the highest French leaders, including the last three presidents have been spied on by the American National Security Agency (NSA).

Critics compared the law to the US Patriot Act, which after 9/11expanded the powers of the intelligence agencies in that country. In a move that is consider insufficient to protect civil liberties, President François Hollande had announced he would send the legal text for review to the Constitutional Court.

According to the new law, born shortly after the jihadist attacks last January in Paris, telecom operators, search engines and social networks must install a kind of black box for any suspicious behavior. The data obtained will be automatically transmitted to the information services for analysis. This is the same type of system implemented in the United States, where telecom companies serve as data collectors for the NSA -many say they are completely controlled by the NSA- which in turn vacuums all the data from their servers to snif it all of it.

French agents, hitherto are not covered by the law in many of its practices, may use systems called Imsi Catcher. With them, they can capture and record data from phones or computers of alleged suspects without a warrant and of all who may be connected or not to that suspect. They may also be used, now legally, to bug private places or to attach markers to track cars. The agentes may eve enter private homes if they see fit.

At the last moment, the Assembly removed a clause introduced last week by the socialists which would have given the legal basis for spies to snoop on foreigners visiting France with only the authorization of the Prime Minister.

Applications for espionage practices can be carried out by the ministers of Defense, Economy, Finance, Justice and Interior. The requests will be sent to a National Control Commission for Information Technology composed by four MPs, two members of the State Council, two judges and a computer expert. If these members do not see any objections, the Commission will send requests to the prime minister, who will then rubber stamp the requests.

American-Raised Meat? You May Not Know For Long

It took years to get country-of-origin labels, so you know where your meat comes from. But just after these labels began appearing in your grocery store, they could be gone for good simply because other countries don’t like them!

The House just voted to kill the labels, and the Senate vote is our last chance to save them. Tell your Senators to take a stand for your right to know, and don’t let other countries push us around!

My Flag And Beliefs Held Hostage

us flag 4th of july 

In 1935 author Sinclair Lewis wrote ” When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross.” Amazing how he could see ahead 80 years! With another July 4th around the corner, replete with the usual fireworks, barbeques and beer, perhaps it is time for us to ponder the direction our Amerikan Empire has taken. Let’s just focus on the 15 years of this the 21st century, ok?  The presidential election of 2000 revealed (blatantly to the world outside of our borders) just how devious this Military Industrial Empire can be. The movers and shakers of our Two Party ‘One Party’ syndicate (and that is what they are) decided that it would be much better for their greedy and exploitive interests to have Junior Bush and his puppeteer, Darth Cheney, in office. Al Gore would have been ok to them, having done his apprenticeship under their stooge ‘Smirking Bill’, but maybe the Bush/Cheney gang could get more done and quicker. So, they fixed the election and got that gang the power they needed to do the ‘ dirty deeds ‘. And boy, they sure did!

The folks in the 9/11 Truth movement love the flag and are as patriotic, more so in fact, than those who follow the empire’s ‘company line’. One fine attribute of that group is that it is made up of conservatives, ultra conservative libertarians, progressives, socialists etc. All they focus on is what really happened on 9/11 and of course afterwards… when the police/surveillance state went wild. To love one’s country and its flag is NOT exclusive to the right wing or neo liberal crew. It is NOT exclusive to the phony hypocrites within the Republican and Democratic parties… they who serve the empire so well. We who care about this great nation follow the words of Ben Franklin to a tee: “Dissent is the lifeblood of democracy.” Thus, we stood (and many still stand) out in public against the warmongers within this empire who destroyed Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, and now wish to do the same with Syria and maybe Russia.

Ah, now we come to that great standard bearer Ole Time Religion. Before I go into discourse on the religion of my roots, let’s look at a few others. You cannot believe how many Muslims I have spoken to who think that the zealots and fanatical Islamists do not have a clue  as to what the Koran teaches. They  have nothing in common with people who preach killing infidels and establishing Islamic states etc. Jewish folks I speak to feel the same way about the arrogant fanatical orthodox Jewish groups… people who really think that non Jews are 2nd class and  not worthy of the same rights that Jews enjoy in Israel… especially Arabs. Sadly, they look upon the Palestinians as the Nazis did to their ancestors: subhuman bottom feeders! Of course, the ‘crème de la crème’ of fanatical religious thinking has to be reserved for my good old Christian warriors who see the planet as a battleground for their ‘good’ vs. everyone else’s ‘evil’. They forget that the man I personally admire, he who carried the Christ Spirit for all to share, was referred to as The Prince of Peace. How many moments in actual New Testament scripture does one need to read about what Jesus of Nazareth preached: ‘Easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.’  When a wealthy young man asked to follow him, Jesus said ‘If you want to be perfect, go sell what you have and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven, and come follow me.’ As far as pre-emptive wars and drone missile attacks, whereupon ‘collateral damage’ become a way of life, Jesus said ‘In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brothers, ye have done it unto me.’

This writer realizes it is not cogent in the realm of political discourse and dissent to share one’s belief in the almighty, or in the faith of a universe outside of this crap we call reality. A very wise man once told me when I asked him ” Is there a God?” that the universe or God is simply Love. Thus, logic would dictate that if one believes that, then what follows is ‘Anything not of love cannot be of God.’  Jackie DeShannon put it best in the Bacharach & David 60s song: “What the world needs now is love, sweet love, it’s the only thing there is much too little of… What the world needs now is love sweet love, no, not just for some but for everyone.” Waving flags and wearing religious icons while saluting war and empire is not gonna do it folks.

U.S. Admits Paying Terrorists For Services Rendered In Syria

mideast-syria-vanishing-moderates.jpeg-1280x960
By: Brandon Turbeville | Activist Post –

When researchers such as myself have reported that the United States is funding al-Qaeda, Nusra, ISIS and other related terror organizations in Syria, we were not kidding. Still, despite the fact that even the U.S. government itself has admitted that it was funding terroristsdirectly and indirectly through Saudi Arabia, the suggestion was met with disbelief, ridicule, or either entirely ignored.

Now, however, the United States government has admitted that it funds terrorists on the ground in Syria yet again, this time placing an individual dollar amount on the assistance provided.

According to the Pentagon, Syrian “rebels” being trained and “vetted” by the United States are receiving “compensation” to the tune of anywhere between $250 to $400 per month to act as America’s proxy forces in the Middle East. Reuters reports that the payment levels were confirmed by the Pentagon and also that the Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter and Navy Commander Elissa Smith both separately admitted the fact that these “new” terrorists are receiving a stipend.

Reuters also reported on alleged obstacles the Pentagon claims it is facing regarding the ability to train the death squad volunteers due to a lack of ability to “vet” them appropriately as well as a bizarre incident where fighters abandon the mission after having received training from the US military. The reason provided by the Pentagon was that the fighters did not want to sign a contract to avoid fighting Assad. But, in the same report, the Pentagon states that there was no such contract – only one requiring them to “respect human rights” and “the rule of law,” so the reason provided for the disappearance of these fighters lacks legitimacy. One can only speculate as to where these “trainees” disappeared to.

Of course, “human rights” and the “rule of law” have never been concerns before, even as the United States has funded, armed, trained, and directed jihadists on the ground from the very beginning of the Syrian crisis. Neither has there been any concern over the presence of “moderate” rebels that have never actually existed in Syria. After all, it should be remembered that the United States own Defense Intelligence Agency was recently forced to release and declassify documents which admitted that not only did the US know that the “rebellion” was made up of al-Qaeda and Nusra forces but that these organizations and similar groups were attempting to create a “Salafist principality” in the east of Syria and West of Iraq. The DIA docs also show that the US was supporting all of these efforts. In reality, of course, the US was directing these efforts.

Make no mistake, the United States is not funding “moderate vetted rebels” to fight ISIS or al-Qaeda. The US is funding jihadist terrorists and mercenaries to work alongside ISIS and al-Qaeda (if they are not members of these organizations already) to overthrow the secular government of Bashar al-Assad. Virtually every person of a moderate persuasion in Syria has long come over to the side of the Syrian government. Indeed, there was never such a thing as a moderate rebel in Syria to begin with and the reality on the ground has not changed since.

Thus, revelations that the United States is funding a mercenary army to overthrow Assad is nothing new. The only revelation contained in these recent reports are the chicken feed denominations of money that the terrorist savages are accepting for their services in barbarity and treason on behalf of the agenda of the Anglo-American world order.

SCOTUScare From The Same-Sex Supreme Court

scotuscare

In the long and storied past, America prided itself on being a country based upon law. Once this was true! Today, the last vestige of a society built upon natural law and incontrovertible principles is dead. The legal system is now founded on whim, political pressure and sentiment. Under such a framework, the Supreme Court has forfeited the final semblance of legitimacy. The United States no longer can claim it is a constitutional republic. The tyranny of the judiciary in not new! However, the latest decisions on Obamacare and Same-Sex marriage effectively gut the credibility and the meaning of the constitution.  

The court has abdicated its ruling role on the constitutionality of law and has substituted the living activism of despotic black robe shysters. This day has been expected for a very long time. No American can feel safe that Bill of Rights protections will be honored. When there is no confidence that language has a universal meaning, the basis of civilized certitude is destroyed. 

The example of Supreme Court Upholds Tax Subsidies Under Obamacare, clearly and eloquently state the obvious. 

“In a dissent he summarized from the bench, Justice Antonin Scalia said, “We should start calling this law SCOTUScare.” Using the acronym for the Supreme Court, Scalia said his colleagues have twice stepped in to save the law from what Scalia considered worthy challenges. 

“The Court holds that when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act says ‘Exchange established by the State’ it means ‘Exchange established by the State or the Federal Government.’ That is of course quite absurd, and the Court’s 21 pages of explanation make it no less so,” Scalia wrote. 

Scalia added, “Words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State is ‘established by the State.’ It is hard to come up with a clearer way to limit tax credits to state Exchanges than to use the words ‘established by the State.’ And it is hard to come up with a reason to include the words ‘by the State’ other than the purpose of limiting credits to state Exchanges.” 

The federalist system was designed by the founding fathers to rest upon three equal branches of a central government. While the Supreme Court has defied this tenant for scores of decades, it has fundamentally eradicated the States Rights autonomy balance that is so feared and loathed by the totalitarian collectivists who are committed to the final and complete destruction of the American Revolution. 

Make no mistake about what is at stake. A genuine America First society advocates and defends traditional Western Civilization values, restrains on arbitrary authority and revealed Judeo-Christian beliefs. The Supreme Court actions resemble Pharisees authoritarian’s abuses that perverted the true meaning of divine teachings.  

Laws are not commandments, yet even temporal legal enactments are too important to allow government lawyers to define and dictate for humanity. Violations of essential natural rights have become the normal practice of mock judges. Such misuse of public trust is abhorrent to any citizen committed to the essence of a responsible life.  

scotus same sex

When the Supreme Court Rules Same-Sex Couples Have Right To Marry Nationwide, the perceptiveness and wisdom of Antonin Scalia sums up the dilemma.  

“Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact—and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of the Court’s claimed power to create “liberties” that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves,” Scalia wrote. 

Folks the game is over. Tactics to work within the system are futile. When a country substitutes immutable principles with capricious opinion, valid law no long exists. As the popular culture sinks to new lows of immorality and is based upon public attitudes of non-functional imbeciles, the most corrupt government officials ignore any equitable restraints on their power. 

When the law offers no reasonable recourse or relief, citizens must defy observance of the destructive decisions and adopt the practice of civil disobedience. Learn from the experience of Know Nothing – The Reality of the American Experience. 

“Is it realistic that enacting State Sovereignty laws can succeed, when the obvious response from the Beltway Beast would be to ignore the attempt to exert lawful means to put a stop to federal tyranny?  And what would the Supreme “kangaroo court” Judiciary rule on such a basic constitutional precept? Are you a modern day know nothing, or do you understand the unmistakable answer to this question? Most are unable to make such a leap. 

If reeling in the central government through the State legislative process seems a remote prospect, there must be other alternatives. Nullification is another approach that is getting populace support. “When a state ‘nullifies’ a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative, or ‘non-effective,’ within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as that state is concerned”. 

For another option, The New Nullification Crisis: GOPers Vow To Defy SCOTUS Over Gay Marriage provides an approach that the mainstream cultural deviants and establishment legal parasites will demonize. 

“A ruling by the Supreme Court is nothing but an opinion if the legislative branch and the executive branch do not enforce it,” DeLay said on Newsmax TV’s The Steve Malzberg Show. “Not only that, if the states would just invoke the 10th Amendment and assert their sovereignty, they can defy a ruling by the Supreme Court. It’s in the Constitution. We can tell the court what cases they can hear.” 

These tactics may affront legal scholars whose main purpose and function is to protect the esquire elites and subdue the common man to second class status. 

Nevertheless, the danger of accepting the myth that any Supreme Court can rip up the 800 years legacy of the Magna Carta, is suicidal.  

Paul Craig Roberts writes: 

“Monday, June 15, 2015, is the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. In his book, Magna Carta, J.C. Holt, professor of medieval history, University of Cambridge, notes that three of the chapters of this ancient document still stand on the English Stature Book and that so much of what survives of the Great Charter is “concerned with individual liberty,” which “is a reflexion of the quality of the original act of 1215.” 

When the Supreme Court rebukes the individual liberty of Americans to inflict forced compliance of Obamacare, the court violates the cannon of justice inherent in the originating document that defines limited authority and accountability on government.

Likewise, mandating federal enforcement of same-sex marriage upon individual States and all citizens is a hideous perversion of “equal rights”. The Don Boys article, Homosexuals Want Special Rights, Not Equal Rights! – Presents a compelling argument that warns of the slippery slope from this Supreme Court diktat. 

“Chief Justice Roberts’ cousin (a confessed lesbian) says that perversion should be legal because “society is becoming more accepting of the humanity of same-sex couples and the simple truth that we deserve to be treated with dignity, respect and equality under the law.” Senator Rob Portman said that he has taken sides with the same-sex crowd because his son is a homosexual. Do I need to lecture the Chief Justice and the Senator that right and wrong are not decided by society’s ever-changing standards? After all, some civilizations butchered children while others ate their foes. In other defunct civilizations children were sacrificed to pagan gods. And I am purposely making the comparison. Homosexuality has always been called, “The unspeakable crime against nature.” Also against a holy God! 

It is incredible that homosexuals, with a straight face, can demand respect and recognition of their dignity! May I point out that those people do incredibly dangerous, disgusting, and deadly things? And they expect respect! What chutzpah! Or as the English would say, “What cheek.” Or as an American would say, “What stupidity!” 

Populist paleo-conservatives have warned for years about the specious authority used to inflict a terminal hemorrhage on the body politik. These latest Supreme Court edicts are a vivid violation of the U.S. Constitution that any reasonable and literal reading will attest.  

Face the facts, America has abandoned the rule under law and no juggling of future Supreme Court justices will rectify the damage already inflicted by treasonous judges. Real Americans are marks for extinction as the profaned culture unravels into deeper immorality. The police state operates under the cover and color of law, but has lost any moral authority to earn the loyalty of honorable citizens.  

Providing consent to this outlaw and criminal system is the essence of insanity.

Fifteen Questions That Are Being Asked About The Charleston Shooting (VIDEOS)

dylann-roof
By: James Perloff |

DISCLAIMER: I was not in Charleston and did not witness the event. I am not asserting that Dylann Roof did not commit the crime attributed to him. If the tragedy occurred just as the media has said, my heart goes out to the victims’ families, and nothing here is intended to disparage the memory of the dead.

However, those who realize America has long been run by a shadow oligarchy know our country has experienced many false flags. Some have been used to attempt to bring us into wars, such as the sinking of the Maine, the sinking of the Lusitania, the foreknown attack on Pearl Harbor, the artificially contrived Korean War, the Tonkin Gulf-induced Vietnam War, the attack on the USS Liberty, 9/11, and the various pretexts used for multiple Middle Eastern wars that General Wesley Clark says were foretold to him at the Pentagon in 2001. We have also seen false flags used to advance gun control and a domestic police state, as in Oklahoma City, Sandy Hook, and France’s Charlie Hebdo. So we would not be injudicious to examine the Charleston incident closely, and we do find that reasonable questions are being raised. I am especially indebted to Redsilverj, one of YouTube’s top alternative media analysts, for so many insights, several of which I have embedded here. Hats off to you, Redsilverj.

(1) Why do the family members interviewed here show little sorrow and emotion just one day after the incident? I am a Christian, and I understand that forgiveness is inherent to Christ’s teachings. Nevertheless, it is usual even for Christians to go through the normal grieving process. Calmness might occur after the death of a terminally ill loved one, where death had been long anticipated, but not typically in the case of sudden death, especially where one has seen the shock of a parent’s bloodied corpse:

(2) Redsilverj asks: why is this family member repeating the same lines in two different media interviews, as if scripted?

(3) Why is the U.S. government giving $29 million to the families? People die in shootings every day, and the government doesn’t give them a nickel. Some are asking if this could be actor reimbursement:

(4) Why was the church already re-opened for services on Sunday? Isn’t cleanup from a bloody massacre a time-consuming process? And isn’t this a crime scene?

(5) Why was only one person reported wounded? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charleston_church_shooting. How was Dylann Roof able to get nearly a 100 percent kill ratio (similar to Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook). Roof allegedly did this using a single handgun. One must be a good shot to fire lethal shots with a handgun. According to news reports, Roof reloaded five times. One would think some people should have had time to flee.

(6) As with Charlie Hebdo, there are no pictures whatsoever of bodies or carnage. Is this from good taste and respect for the victims, or possibly because the incident differs from what we were told?

(7) Why did the media already have such a detailed profile of Dylann Roof, including sound bites from a relative, just hours after his arrest?

(8) Is it only a coincidence that the Department of Homeland Security had an “Active Shooter Threat Training Program” scheduled for Charleston at the very time of the shooting?

Time and time again we have seen drills and military exercises coinciding with false flag events, including 9/11 and the Boston Marathon Bombing.

(9) Although Roof’s Facebook page has been removed from the Web, why does the Wayback Machine show it was created only days before the shooting? (View from about 1:00 to 2:30 of the video):

(10) Is it possible that Roof, as some believe, is actually John Christian Graas, who was a child actor in the 1990s (Kindergarten Cop; Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman) and who was in the United States Marine Corps in 2010 according to his IMDB biography?

graas-4

(11) Is it a coincidence that the incident occurred as Jade Helm is getting under way, an event that many believe is intended to transition America into martial law, and which mandates that Special Ops forces infiltrate local communities disguised as civilians? As the May 21 Houston Chronicle reported of Jade Helm: “Among the planned exercises, soldiers will try to operate undetected amongst civilian populations.” Could this possibly be a clue to Dylann Roof’s excellent marksmanship?

(12) Is it only coincidence that “Mother” Emanuel A.M.E. Church has long ties to Freemasonry and that Charleston is an historic center of Freemasonry?

(13) Is it only coincidence that Charleston was the first state to secede from the Union before the Civil War, and thus symbolizes the Confederate flag now being targeted for banning?

(14) Is it only coincidence that this event distracted public attention from the critical TPP Fast-Track vote occurring in Congress on the same day?

(15) Is the incident actually a psy-op intended to conveniently push several agendas:

  • Advance gun control and ultimately repeal of the Second Amendment?
  • Generate the racial tensions already fanned by the media-hyped Zimmerman case and the George Soros-funded rioting in Ferguson and Baltimore which followed police shootings of Afro-Americans?

Shut down Internet sites and freedom of speech, which is being touted as responsible for actions such as Roof’s?

Start reclassifying American citizens as “terrorists” to pave the way for detaining them without trial?

UPDATES

June 26. I believe I should keep this post updated. As would be expected, more observations are coming in from alternative media:

–This video points out that Dylann Roof was wearing a bullet-proof vest in the photo of him entering the church. Since such vests are expensive, how did this unemployed kid afford it? Is this another detail suggesting that Roof might be a covert military asset like Timothy McVeigh?

–This blog post reports that Dylann Roof was a gentle Christian and asks if the arrested perp might be a different person:

–A post at Global Research notes that forensic analysis indicates the Apartheid-era patches seen on Roof’s jacket may have been digitally added to the photograph.

–Aaron and Melissa Dykes (Truthsteam Media) think the gentle, guns-holstered arrest of Dylann Roof was for the same purpose that Redsilverj believes the cops took Roof to Burger King for lunch: enflame racial tensions with an in-your-face double standard: Afro-American criminals we shoot in the back, but white criminals we take to lunch. This seems like more of the same emotion button-pushing seen in Ferguson and Baltimore, intended to provoke civil disorder and lead ultimately to martial law.

The Pope’s Top Climate Change Advisor Does Not Believe In God – But He Does Appear To Believe In ‘Gaia’

German professor John Schellnhuber and pope

What kind of people is Pope Francis surrounding himself with?  The fact that this Pope decided to choose German professor John Schellnhuber as his chief climate change advisor is raising a lot of eyebrows.  Schellnhuber doesn’t believe in God, but as you will see below, he does appear to believe in ‘Gaia’.  Schellnhuber has also advocated for the establishment of an “Earth Constitution”, a “Global Council” directly elected by the citizens of the world, and a “Planetary Court” that would serve as the pinnacle of a planetary legal system.  In addition, he believes that the “carrying capacity” of our planet is less than one billion people.  This is the man that the Pope has chosen to advise him on the issue that Pope Francis has made the centerpiece of his papacy.

The concept of ‘Gaia’ has deep roots in ancient paganism.  Many of the advocates of the ‘Gaia hypothesis‘ do not consider themselves to be religious, but in reality it is a kind of “scientific pantheism”.  This quasi-scientific theory was popularized by James Lovelock in his book entitled “Gaia: A New Look At Life On Earth“, and apparently this is a theory that Schellnhuber endorses.  The following is an extended excerpt from a recent article by William M. Briggs

In the Gaia Principle, Mother Earth is alive, and even, some think, aware in some ill-defined, mystical way. The Earth knows man and his activities and, frankly, isn’t too happy with him.

This is what we might call “scientific pantheism,” a kind that appeals to atheistic scientists. It is an updated version of the pagan belief that the universe itself is God, that the Earth is at least semi-divine — a real Brother Sun and Sister Water! Mother Earth is immanent in creation and not transcendent, like the Christian God.

What’s this have to do with Schellnhuber? In the 1999 Nature paper “‘Earth system’ analysis and the second Copernican revolution,” he said:

Ecosphere science is therefore coming of age, lending respectability to its romantic companion, Gaia theory, as pioneered by Lovelock and Margulis. This hotly debated ‘geophysiological’ approach to Earth-system analysis argues that the biosphere contributes in an almost cognizant way to self-regulating feedback mechanisms that have kept the Earth’s surface environment stable and habitable for life.

Geo-physiological, in case you missed it. Cognizant, in black and white. So dedicated is Schellnhuber to this belief that he says “the Gaia approach may even include the influence of biospheric activities on the Earth’s plate-tectonic processes.”  Not the other way around, mind you, where continental drift and earthquakes effects life, but where life effects earthquakes.

He elaborates:

Although effects such as the glaciations may still be interpreted as over-reactions to small disturbances — a kind of cathartic geophysiological fever — the main events, resulting in accelerated maturation by shock treatment, indicate that Gaia faces a powerful antagonist. Rampino has proposed personifying this opposition as Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction.

So why would the Pope rely on the “expertise” of someone that does not believe in God, but that argues that “Gaia faces a powerful antagonist”?

Perhaps someone should ask him.

And someone should also ask the Pope why he is hanging around with someone that believes that our planet is overpopulated by six billion people

Schellnhuber is most famous for predicting that the “carrying capacity” of the earth is “below” 1 billion people. When confronted with this, he called those who quoted him “liars.” But he then repeated the same claim, saying, “All I said was that if we had unlimited global warming of eight degrees warming, maybe the carrying capacity of the earth would go down to just 1 billion, and then the discussion would be settled.”  And he has often said that this temperature tipping point would be reached — unless “actions” were taken.

Schellnhuber is also an unashamed globalist.  In a previous article, I discussed how he believes that we need a global government, a global constitution and a global court that would have authority over all the other courts on the planet.  The following is an excerpt from a very disturbing article that he authored

Let me conclude this short contribution with a daydream about those key institutions that could bring about a sophisticated — and therefore more appropriate — version of the conventional “world government” notion. Global democracy might be organized around three core activities, namely (i) an Earth Constitution; (ii) a Global Council; and (iii) a Planetary Court. I cannot discuss these institutions in any detail here, but I would like to indicate at least that:

the Earth Constitution would transcend the UN Charter and identify those first principles guiding humanity in its quest for freedom, dignity, security and sustainability;

the Global Council would be an assembly of individuals elected directly by all people on Earth, where eligibility should be not constrained by geographical, religious, or cultural quotas; and

the Planetary Court would be a transnational legal body open to appeals from everybody, especially with respect to violations of the Earth Constitution.

So why is Pope Francis surrounding himself with such people?

Does he have similar hopes for the future?

Without a doubt, the Pope’s latest encyclical fully embraces Schellnhuber’s views on climate change, but it doesn’t stop there.  The Pope also expressed a very negative view of human progress, and he appeared to be echoing many of the exact same talking points that radical environmentalists have been hammering us with for years.  The following comes from a recent article by Steven Malanga

The encyclical, whose title is derived from a line from St. Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Sun (“Be praised, My Lord, through all your Creatures”), is being welcomed by some in the scientific community because it proclaims that climate change is real and that humanity must address it. But the nearly 38,000-word document—most of which is not about climate change—actually reads like a giant step backward for the Church’s social teaching: a rejection of technological progress; a dark, narrow vision of human nature that ignores the enormous gains the world has made in alleviating human suffering; and an almost antihuman call, reminiscent of the most radical environmentalists, to reduce human activity drastically as the only way to save the planet. As Michael Shellenberger, president of the Breakthrough Institute and co-author of An Ecomodernist Manifesto, observed: “When [the] Pope speaks of ‘irrational faith in human progress’ I want him to visit the Congo to see what life is like when there is no progress.”

So what does all of this mean?

Could it be possible that this Pope is far more radical than most people ever imagined?

If so, what does that mean for the future of Catholicism?

ISIS: US Proxy Foot Soldiers

isis

Washington recruits, arms, trains, funds and directs ISIS terrorists the same way they used Mujahideen fighters in the 1980s against Soviet Russia in Afghanistan as well as Al Qaeda and likeminded takfiri groups today.

They’re US proxy foot soldiers against independent governments Washington wants replaced with pro-Western ones, or in the case of Iraq, weakened and balkanized like Yugoslavia for easier control.

Iraqis don’t believe America wants ISIS defeated. On June 25, the Wall Street Journal reported Anbar province Sunni Iraqi “unanim(ity) about whom to blame for their misery.”

Shiite lawmaker Alia Nusseif said “(w)e don’t have any trust in Americans anymore…ISIS is being used as a tool by America to divide and weaken Iraq.”

Former policeman Wassen Khaled said he “hold(s) Americans responsible for destroying Anbar.”

“We all know that America is providing ISIS with weapons and food, and that it is because of American backing that they have become so strong,” an Iraqi free from Ramadi added.

The Journal, of course, downplayed what it called “conspiracy theories” while admitting this view “represent(s) political reality with real-world consequences” – notably ISIS advances despite months of US bombing Iraqi infrastructure, not their fighters.

US officials lie about waging war on their elements. General Thomas Weidley is chief of staff of Washington’s so-called task force against the Islamic State. Claiming America’s “mission is to defeat Daesh (ISIS)” and bombing has had a “devastating” effect is polar opposite truth.

Washington created the Islamic State. A previous article explained Judicial Watch obtained a declassified 2012 Pentagon intelligence report anticipating ISIS (the Islamic State – IS) emerging from US support for Al Qaeda and other takfiri terrorists.

It predicted what happened, saying “(i)f the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared salafist principality in eastern Syria…and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”

It anticipated “dire consequences” for Iraq – including the fall of Mosul and Ramadi, saying:

An “ideal atmosphere” was created “for AQI (Al Qaeda in Iraq) to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi.”

“ISI (Islamic State of Iraq) could also declare an Islamic state through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory.”

Supporting powers include Washington, Turkey, other rogue NATO partners, Gulf states and Israel. They created and supported takfiri terrorist groups to destabilize Syria, establish a Salafist Principality, isolate the Assad government and topple it.

Pentagon intelligence confirmed US support for ISIS and takfiri terrorists – not opposition as officially reported.

Bassel Idriss, commander of a so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) brigade, admitted working jointly with takfiri terrorist groups, including ISIS – providing US-supplied weapons besides what Washington supplies them directly by airdrops and through Saudi channels.

London-based Conflict Armament Research reported “significant quantities” of US weapons used by takfiri terrorists marked “property of the US government.”

America’s phony war on ISIS uses its forces for its own imperial interests. On Sunday, Fars News listed 10 ways ISIS accumulates huge amounts of money.

1. Selling oil using Turkish firms for $1 million daily.

2. Selling ancient Syrian monuments through Turkish middlemen for billions of dollars.

3. Selling body organs.

4. Collecting ransoms for released hostages.

5. Trafficking non-Muslim women.

6. Selling antique Syrian and Iraqi manuscripts and artifacts.

7. Selling intelligence gained on their battlefields to Ankara spy agencies.

8. Turkish financial and logistical aid during the Kobani occupation.

9. Help from Turkish charities.

10. Over $1 billion annually trafficking heroin, according to Russia’s Drug Control Service head Viktor Ivanov.

Plus enormous amounts of US aid, much channeled through Riyadh. Middle East wars rage endlessly. Stoking conflict and instability serve US interests. Expect no resolution any time soon.

Should You Eat Roadkill? 8 Important Rules To Consider First

deer_crossing_sign

If the thought of preparing dinner from a dead animal found in the road makes you squeamish, join the club.  I personally find the thought revolting but then again, I have a robust pantry full of food for both the short and the long term, and currently do not feel compelled to eat roadkill of any type.

That being said, should you eat roadkill?  Are there situations were eating roadkill will become a necessity?

Let us play “what if” for a moment.  What if there was a global famine and no food coming down the food chain?  What if your garden was producing vegetables but was sorely lacking in sources of protein?  What if there was a second great depression and ordinary folks like you and I had no jobs, no money, and no food other than what we could forage?

If that were the case, roadkill might start to look pretty darn good.  That said, are you sure you really want to eat roadkill?   Only you can answer that but my guess is that under the most dire of circumstances, the answer would be yes.

Let us hope we never have to eat roadkill to survive, but if we do, my friend Todd Walker at Survival Sherpa has come up with 8 roadkill rules to follow before you even take your first bite.  After reading this, you just might open your mind to eating roadkill in a survival situation.

Manna from Motorists: 8 Roadkill Rules to Follow Before You Swallow

It’s practically a self-reliance commandment:  Thou shalt not waste food.

You won’t find these words on a stone tablet, but these 5 words are rock-solid advice!

The smallest ripple in the industrial food machine can wreak havoc on food prices and availability. That’s one reason self-reliant types grow some, if not most, of their own groceries. Cultivating food independence is hard work, sweat-of-the-brow kind of stuff.

You deserve an unexpected gift, a miracle of sorts. The roadways are the perfect place to claim your next free-range fur or feathered meal.

Disgusting?

Hardly! It’s the ethically thing to do out of respect for the animal victim. See Self-Reliance Commandment above.

More questions swirl in minds of refined readers, followed by the inevitable…

Why, I’d never eat from a ditch!!

Here’s the thing, though…

Roadkill is an overlooked secret survival sauce. You gotta eat to survive. Food costs money. Roadkill is free. Plus, it’s healthier than factory farmed animals injected with who knows what.

How do you know if manna from motorists is safe to eat?

If you experience a fender bender with Bambi or witnessed the crash, you know the exact time of demise. When you run across a potential meal on a road trip or daily commute, how can you be sure it’s safe to harvest? There are many variables to consider.

8 Rules of Roadkill

Follow these Roadkill Rules to help determine if food by Ford is safe to swallow.

1. Legal Stuff

Any fur-bearing animal or bird is edible. However, laws on harvesting roadkill or possession of protected species vary from state to state. Check out this interactive map to see if your state allows the collection of roadkill.

In the Peach state, motorists may collect deer without notifying authorities. Bear collisions must be reported but you get to keep the bruin.

Texas, California, and Washington are among the few states that prohibit roadkill collection. In Alaska, the Fish and Wildlife personnel collect reported road-killed animals and distribute to charities helping the needy.

Check your state laws first!

2. Impact Damage

The point of impact determines how much meat is salvageable. My experience with broadside impacts are not good. Internal organs usually rupture and taint the meat. Not to mention all the bloodshot meat. As in hunting, a head shot saves meat.

Tire treads over the body usually means a bloody mess. Squashed squirrel would require a spatula to remove from the asphalt and should be avoided.

3. Clear Eyes

If the eyes are intact and clear, the animal is likely a fresh kill. Cloudy eyes hint that the animal has been dead for some time (more than a few hours).

Creamy discharges around the eyes or other orifices indicate a sick animal. If the eyes are gone, leave it alone.

4. Stiffness and Skin

Rigor mortis sets within a few hours of death. This is not a deal breaker depending on other indicators. The steak in the butcher’s glass counter has undergone the same process of “decay” or tenderizing.

Pinch the skin of the animal, unless it’s a porcupine, to check if the skin still moves freely along top of the muscle beneath. If so, you’re probably okay. Skin stuck to the muscle is a bad indicator. If fur can be pulled from the hide with a slight tug, the animal has been deceased far too long.

5. Bugs and Blood

Fleas feed on the blood of warm blooded animals. Brush the hair on the carcass and inspect for fleas like you would on a family pet. If fleas are present, that’s a good thing. Fleas won’t stick around on a cold body.

There’s usually blood involved when animals come in contact with 3,000 pound machines in motion. Blood all over the road may mean there’s too much damaged meat to salvage. The color of blood present should be a dark red, like, well, fresh blood. Dark puddles of blood have been there been there a while.

Flies could be a bad sign. They lay larvae in wounds and other openings of the body. A few flies present isn’t always a deal breaker. A prior wound on a living animal may contain maggots. We had a live deer seek refuge in my mother-in-laws car port who had a broken hind leg from a vehicle collision which was infested with maggots. I approached her in an attempt to humanely dispatch her and put her out of her misery. Sadly, she gained her footing and disappeared through our neighborhood woods.

In the hot, humid summers of Georgia, it only takes a few minutes for flies to zero in on dead stuff. Which brings us to our next consideration…

6. Climate and Weather

The weather conditions and geographical location are variables to consider. Cold to freezing temperatures is ideal – think… roadside walk-in freezer or fridge. Meat will decompose quickly in hot and humid conditions.

One steamy August evening years ago, I was in my backyard and heard tires screech followed by a distinctive thud on a nearby road. I walked two doors down and found a freshly dispatched deer laying on the grassy right-of-way. That gift primed my freezer before fall hunting season.

7. Smell

This one is pretty obvious.

If it has a putrid odor, leave it alone. You don’t have to be a TV survival expert to identify bad meat. Your old factory sensors will let you know… along with your gag reflex.

Ever break the cellophane on a pack of chicken breasts you forgot about in the back of your fridge? Register that stench for future roadside foraging.

8. Collection and Processing Tips

Our vehicles are prepared with Get Home Kits. You may want to add a few items to it or build a separate Roadkill Kit. My kit is simple and includes:

  • Tarp
  • Surgical gloves

If you don’t drive a pickup truck, wrap large carcasses in a tarp and place in the vehicle for transport. Smaller animals usually go in a contractor grade garbage bag to get home.

It’s common sense in my mind… Do NOT field dress an animal on the side of the road! It’s dangerous, illegal (hopefully), unsightly, and disrespectful to both animal and human. I’ve seen some really stupid and disgusting practices over the years from unethical “hunters” and idiots.

If you’re not prepared to harvest game properly, stick with the supermarkets.

Don’t practice slob self-reliance!

Rant over…

When processing wild game animals or fowl, (road-killed or not) always check the internal organs – heart, liver, lungs, kidneys – before going any further. Dispose of the animal properly (or report it to local wildlife officials for study) if the organs are discolored or showing yellow-greenish discharge.

Again, use your sniffer. If it smells bad, it probably is.

The Final Word

The subject of eating roadkill may be distasteful or even taboo for some.  On the other hand, there are many that consider finding a deer, moose or other animal in the middle road a real treasure.

The purpose of this article is not to judge, but rather to open up the possibility of eating roadkill if you have to, and further, doing so in a safe manner.  You only want to eat roadkill if it is fresh, regardless of how hungry you are.  And remember, even if it is not edible, you may still be able to salvage and use the hide.

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!
