Censorship Around The World Still At High Levels

Censorship is still a big issue around the world. Why? One reason: our so-called “authorities” are afraid of free thought and the free flow of information.

Censorship is still a big issue around the world. Why? One reason: our so-called “authorities” are afraid of free thought and the free flow of information.

Censorship is still a big issue around the world. Censorship remains at high levels in many countries, despite the fact that we tend to think we live in a world without that much of it (at least in the so-called “enlightened and developed West”). Why are censorship levels so high? There can really only be one reason for it in the end: our so-called “authorities” are afraid of free thought, free speech and the free flow of information. Why? Because it would uncover their secrets, expose their corruption, contradict their fake narratives, dissolve mental structures and undo notions of citizen obedience and civic duty that have been drilled into us since birth, mainly through military- and Rockefeller-influenced education.

Rampant Censorship Around the World

censorship-freedom-of-speech-200x300If you are still in any doubt about the blatant levels of censorship that exist in our world today, take a look at the following examples. Just days ago, Israel threatened to ban “contrary to reality” headlines by annulling the press credentials of journalists and editors who used them. Turkey has been arresting journalists for years, and things have sharply escalated with the very dictatorial President Erdogan who got busted buying oil from and supplying weapons to ISIS. (Erdogan, by the way, is the very same guy that is still trying to get a Turkish citizen thrown in prison for “insulting the President” because the man compared Erdogan to Gollum from Lord of the Rings.) Some nations take it even further; in Thailand you can actually get imprisoned not only for insulting the King, but also for insulting the king’s dog.

China is so scared of the free flow of information that they have enormous firewalls maintained by their “Ministry of Truth” that gets to decide what people can and cannot see and read online. In Eritrea and North Korea, there is no independent journalism; all news media is published by the State. Even in the US, where freedom of the press is enshrined and protected in the 1st Amendment, Congresswomen Dianne Feinstein in 2013 put forth an amendment to narrow the definition of journalism and weed out those who were not, as considered by her, “real reporters”.

Europe: Considering Banning Hyperlinks

European courts are considering banning hyperlinks under copyright law.

European courts are considering banning hyperlinks under copyright law.

Europe, it seems, is doing its best not to be left out of the censorship list. Just this week, the highest court in the European Union was hearing arguments to ban hyperlinks. That’s right: in an extraordinary example of governmental overreach, Europe is actually thinking about upholding a law to ban you from linking to other content and sites on the internet! What’s coming next? Wait for it … a law requiring that we ask the Government the permission to breathe?

It is no understatement to say that linking to other sites is one of the key foundational mechanisms of the entire internet. It’s a basic building block of the web. Independent journalist Matt Drudge warned this was coming in October 2015 when he revealed that copyright laws could ban hyperlinking, and that he was told by a Supreme Court justice that “they’ve got the votes now to enforce copyright law”.

American Censorship: The Mockingbird Never Died

censorship-CIA-operation-mockingbird-300x225Operation Mockingbird was a CIA Project that began around the late 1940s/early 1950s, led by Frank Wisner, Cord Meyer and Allen Dulles – the latter being the notorious CIA Director who was the ringleader of the men who killed JFK. Of course, control of the media is a central component in any would-be tyrant’s agenda; it is no surprise that such a scheme has been outlined in key conspiracy documents such as the The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, the 10 planks of Communism and also in Orwell’s 1984. By 1975 the control of the press in America by the CIA was so obvious that Senator Frank Church launched an investigation into it.

“The Agency’s relationship with [The New York] Times was by far its most valuable among newspapers, according to CIA officials. [It was] general Times policy … to provide assistance to the CIA whenever possible.” – The CIA and the Media, by Carl Bernstein

The Mockingbird has never died. The evidence indicates that censorship in America is worse under Obama than before (see the article Obama Is More Hostile Towards The Press Than Any President In History). In 2015, the US dropped to 49th place in the world for press freedom, behind Malta, Niger, Burkino Faso, El Salvador, Tonga, Chile and Botswana. Meanwhile, the CIA continues to control foreign journalists, such as the ones in Germany, and bribes them to write anti-Russian propaganda, as revealed by Udo Ulfkotte. Udo admitted he was “educated to lie and betray, not to tell the truth to the public … by the CIA.”

Not Just Political Censorship – Heaps of Health Censorship Too

There is not just a lot of political censorship. Look at the massive amount of censorship that exists in the area of health, medicine and nutrition. Big Pharma is given free rein to say anything it wants, yet makers of natural health products can’t truthfully say what a health product does, what effects it has or what results it has. Often, they can’t show testimonials either, thanks to the free speech gestapo at the FDA. All the health censorship is obviously designed to protect the Rockefeller-Big Pharma monopoly on drugs, and prevent people from knowing the truth about natural alternatives and taking their health into their own hands.

Political Correctness – The Cunning New Form of Censorship

Political correctness is censorship. Getting offended is not a valid reason for silencing someone else’s free speech.

Political correctness is censorship. Getting offended is not a valid reason for silencing someone else’s free speech.

Political correctness is the new censorship – and a cunning one at that. Political correctness is intolerance disguised as tolerance. It is, as the late great comedian George Carlin once said, “awkward, dishonest language” and “fascism pretending to be manners”. Political correctness came from the Rothschild Frankfurt School – part of the broader NWO agenda of cultural Marxism aimed at slowly and softly making you less free.

It operates on the premise that if people’s feelings get hurt by certain words, or if people feel insulted, offended or irritated by certain languages, then they have the right to get the State to outlaw that language. As Carlin says:

“(Political correctness) presents itself as fairness, yet attempts to restrict and control people’s language with strict codes and rigid rules … I’m not sure silencing people, or forcing them to alter their speech, is the best method for solving problems that go much deeper than speech.”

Political correctness works by using guilt and shaming you into using certain words or phrases, and not using others. It often stands reality on its head, with a verbal sleight of hand. It is a clever way to force people to police themselves, and to control the spectrum of allowable thought and speech. It needs to be exposed and resisted by all freedom-loving people.

Censorship Only Exists Because the Truth is So Powerful

truth-love-power-233x300Although this topic of censorship is a sad one, do not be depressed. There is a positive and fundamental truth underlying this issue. Authorities only censor information because THEY can’t handle the truth, not the reverse as it commonly thought. Governments around the world engage in censorship because they are afraid, deadly afraid, of how the free flow of information could undermine their power base. At one level, they don’t trust people to read for themselves, think for themselves and judge the news for themselves. At another level, they fear the exposure of their secrets and corruption.

Truth will always be more powerful than lies. And ultimately, a lie can only be censored and can only exist for so long until it is uncovered, exposed, disbelieved and tossed away. Today, we live in an age of uncovering lies and promoting the truth as has never happened before.

NOVO ORDO SECLORUM – NeoCon Hell On Earth

new world order 560

Novus Ordo Seclorum on the Great Seal of the United States of America, is apparently an allusion to line 5 of Virgil’s “Eclogue IV,”  in an 18c. edition: Magnus ab integro seclorum nasitur ordo  “The great series of ages begins anew.” The seal’s designer, Charles Thomson, wrote that the words “signify the beginnings of the New American Era.”

The 20th Century was the most destructive era in history. Deaths from all the wars and the genocides estimated at 160 million may seem small if the planet descends into the approaching holocaust. Globalization is the catchword of the ruling class. Sovereign nations are obsolete to the corporatists. Militarization for suppressing conflicts is the mission, since warfare among nations are passé. The old alliances based upon ethnic composition or ideology has vanished. Only dissenters against the New World Order pose a threat to the Novo Ordo Seclorum.

This New Order of the Ages has been in the works for over a millennium. Lest you forget the horrors of man’s inhumanity to man, a short vignette looks back at some of the worst practices of Totalitarian Collectivism.

Caution some of the images in this NOVO ORDO SECLORUM video are ghastly, but the chronological documentation deserves your viewing.

Statism is the common thread that links all totalitarian regimes. Most living souls do not believe that the Soviet, Lenin and Stalin gulag, is possible today. A diluted revulsion level of atrocities is characteristic of the media script of current events. Disconnect between what really happens and what is reported is so dramatic that reality is unknown to most people.

The term NeoCon, commonly used as a synonym for neoconservative begs the real issue. There is nothing conservative about a top down authoritarian central government. Originally, refugees from the liberal Marxist strain, the former Bush NeoCon cronies applied their perverted viewpoint to discredit the meaning of real conservatism. Now you have the Obama LibCons outdoing their statist cousins to advance the War Party outreach intervention, well beyond Iraq and Afghanistan.

Playing the political party label game never alters the fundamental foreign policy designed to use American youth as cannon fodder for the actual masters of the global hegemony. Under Obama and slated with designed regime change, were the countries of Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. Pakistan and Syria are next. Even the stern warning from China not to intervene or violate the sovereignty of Pakistan goes unheard. The march toward a Middle East conflagration rests upon a predictable attack on Iran. This is the obvious war plan. However, the evil empire has limits that superior targeting technology cannot predict a final outcome.

The NeoCons and their Obama administration protagonists share the same bloodline. They all foster a hell on earth for the general population. The unity of purpose is seen in their enduring determination to destroy an independent middle class and silence any dissenter that resists the coordinated enslavement of humanity. Imprisonment of the unruly on a massive scale, already planned by FEMA under Homeland Security provisions, is reminiscent of the sentiments of the ghost of Ezra Pound. John Kaminski provides an invaluable analysis.

Pound’s ghost comments: “What a strange occurrence! No battles are described; the empire was not attacked from without. The description is oddly like the French and Russian Communist Revolutions … the rich were stripped of everything and slept in the open. There are also parallels to modern America … the fish in the lakes and rivers die … there is no end to noise.”

The noise we do hear screams of lies, deception and fraud. How can we as a nation allow another Patriots Act extension? How can we tolerate the TSA and federal government tyranny that threatens the Texas state legislature to halt legislation that would classify TSA airport security procedures as a criminal felony or else face the reality of across the board flight cancellation in Texas? Or, how can we allow Congress their refusal to hold the phony POTUS Barry Soetoroaccountable, when he ignores the war power act?

Where are the anti-war progressives, when their own anointed rock star violates the law to advance the Novo Ordo Seclorum’s extermination of threats to their global imperium?

Sincere paleo-conservatives understand the dynamics used by the elites to confuse the uninformed to believe that an actual terrorist cabal exists to attack and destroy our country. All the time the real conspirators reside in corner suites on Wall Street or in underground bunkers directing the next false flag diversion. NeoCon Watch tracks counterfeit conservatives and global loyalists that protect a bankrupt system for the benefit of select masters.This connection is familiar ground for regular readers of BREAKING ALL THE RULES. What may not be as clear is the direct link of the NeoCons with the debauch and manipulated financial markets, the fractional reserve central banking racket and the intentional deindustrialization of the American economy.

This pattern of despotic control was well known to the great libertarian Murray Rothbard. In The Axis of Deceit, Jim Grichar writes,

“The neo-con Wall Street group . . . elite groups that dictated – and still dictates – the policies and major actions of the U.S. government. Composed of an alliance of neo-conservatives from think tanks, academia, government, Wall Street elite, and the media, its philosophy was, and still is, espoused by the Wall Street Journal editorial page, among others.

A marriage of money and a social democrat version of a free market philosophy (more akin to fascism), these armchair authoritarians claim to know what is good for us, and, whether or not we like it, they are going to give it to us. Even if they have to lie to get their way. (To get a better idea of how Murray really had their number, read The Irrepressible Rothbard, a compendium of Murray’s articles from the Rothbard-Rockwell Report, for brilliant insights into how this group operates.)”

This analysis dates back to 2003. The financial meltdown of 2008 was no shock to the Statists who wage war against the public. The deliberate destruction of the economy is a calculated step in stripping the means of survival from the average peasant.

Ponder the consequences in the systematic elimination of the Soviet serfs in the Novo Ordo Seclorum YouTube. If you have faith in the U.S. government, that such eradication would be impossible in the “so called” land of the free, you are primed for an American version of Stalin’s Terror.

This is a sober alert. What you believe does matter. Once you connect the dots, you have a moral obligation to oppose the sham of the official fantasy story that keeps most citizens in an unremitting cloud of self induced denial. Maybe a slick video with a catchy tune might break through the fog. Watch Nonsense Fairytales Propaganda Crap… Still You Believe – Osama & The Bin Ladens. The true terrorists do the bidding of the globalists.

If you are afraid of the wrath of the New Order of the Ages, just appreciate the penalty paid by Ezra Pound as he languished in prison for confronting absolutism. Mr. Kaminski continues and cites the importance of Eustace Mullins.

“The literary device of Pound’s ghost can only be Eustace Mullins, Pound’s longtime assistant and protegé, who has over the decades become every bit as notorious and revered as his mentor. While Pound created the reputation in letters as the most authentic American poet of the 20th century, Mullins — who started out as the imprisoned Pound’s devoted assistant — has done the same for himself in the area of revealing the secrets of the Federal Reserve scam and chronicling the hidden history of that certain tribe, to whose exploits we now return.”

The NeoCons never rest and their depth of deceit has no limits. Wired magazine reports that There’s a Secret Patriot Act.

“Senator Wyden (D-Oregon) says that powers they grant the government on their face, the government applies a far broader legal interpretation — an interpretation that the government has conveniently classified, so it cannot be publicly assessed or challenged. But one prominent Patriot-watcher asserts that the secret interpretation empowers the government to deploy “dragnets” for massive amounts of information on private citizens; the government portrays its data-collection efforts much differently.

As a member of the intelligence committee, he laments that he can’t precisely explain without disclosing classified information. But one component of the Patriot Act in particular gives him immense pause: the so-called “business-records provision,” which empowers the FBI to get businesses, medical offices, banks and other organizations to turn over any “tangible things” it deems relevant to a security investigation.”

The torment that Americans suffer is poised to explode. The government has manufactured unlawful directives that provide the cover to herd any protestors into a hellhole of torture. Maybe this prospect does not worry your trusting jingoistic confidence. Perhaps the acceleration toward a global apocalypse might get your hairs to stand on edge. Yet, most will dismiss this admonition as fear mongering.

Since the lies that folks hear every day from the media and from their fearless leaders keep so many people in a state of drugged daze, the path to oblivion escalates unimpaired. The elites are not immune to their own devices. The gulag they have planned for us can be used to incarcerate them if you refuse to comply with the Novo Ordo Seclorum. Your life has meaning; do not fear the New Order of the Ages terror. Your own dignity requires active resistance.

First Know This; Your Enemy Is Ruthless

Here’s a major alert that you will appreciate no matter where you live in the US or another nation:  Regional Governance is solidifying.  Why should you care about something that sounds a bit dull?  Because right now you have the shreds of the ability to influence what happens to you.  When regional governance is fully in place AND FUNDED, you will sliding down that official slope to totalitarian authoritarian rule. That’s it.  It’s really that simple.  Official regionalization, funded, takes us from the conceptual to the actual.  From ideology to REALITY.  Now read this:

Last month the San Jose Mercury News and other news outlets reported on a new FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND Parcel Tax in the San Francisco Bay Area. The “emergency” that the SF Bay is facing, the environmental devastation in the SF Bay, you are told, must be dealt with, and $500 million is urgently needed.  You were told that this tax concept is new because people of the 9 counties around the San Francisco Bay will have every one of their parcels assessed a $12 tax annually to ‘save the Bay.’  A ballot measure will be on the June 2016 ballot so that the people of these counties can essentially vote to empower an obscure agency that has been taken over by powerful Silicon Valley Agenda 21 corporate interests.  

Never before have the 9 counties been taxed as a single entity.  Why? Because they are NOT A SINGLE ENTITY.  THEY ARE NINE SEPARATE COUNTIES.

So what?

THIS IS A TEST. The environmental issue is a smokescreen, a GREEN MASK, for the major play here: empowering AND FUNDING a new form of government, regional, that destroys representative government. What does this mean for you? The new ‘region’, the Bay Area, becomes the political and financial gorilla that crushes your ability as a voter to control your life. Instead of working with local, county, and state representatives you’ll be subjected to the power of the OneBayArea: 9 counties / 101 cities where you have no meaningful representation. This is what happened with PlanBayArea. We are suing to stop this, but we lost at Superior Court and are appealing, with your help.

The core danger of regionalization is that you have no vote, no voice, no ability to influence this unelected board / commission. Regions break jurisdictional boundaries and destroy representative government. A region is a supra-governmental organization. Full globalization can only happen with the interim building block: regionalization. The same group sponsoring this, Silicon Valley Regional Forum, hosted futurist Paul Saffo recently, who said that in 50 years the United States would be erased and replaced with Mega-Regions. What voice, what power, will you have if this goes forward? None. These people have an agenda: UN Agenda 21. Before you scoff at it and roll your eyes, take a moment and take a look at the truth behind Sustainable Development. This is not about recycling. This is about full globalization, mega-regions, and handing what little power you have left to an unelected board with a ‘vision.’

Now those Silicon Valley corporations that have been using their money to establish their power will be using YOUR money to maintain and grow their power.

VOTE NO …WHILE YOU STILL CAN. IDENTIFY IT.  EXPOSE IT.  RESIST.

Why Civil Liberties Are No Longer Defended?

civil-liberties-and-rights-of-the-accused

“In the 1880s, people all over the world looked to America for inspiration. Its very existence was proof that it was possible to have a relatively free and peaceful country. No income tax, no foreign wars, no welfare state, no intrusions on civil liberties.” – Harry Browne

When looking back from the perspective of the 1800’s America, the experience in the 20th and certainly the 21th centuries, has been a consistent and total repudiation of the underpinnings of civil liberties. With the widespread rejection of natural law, the secular humanism of the worldly culture has replaced the time tested and well-grounded principles that are the basis of Western Civilization. The sacredness of the individual has withered to the winds and drifts of arbitrary circumstance. Relative significance has replaced timeless permanence. Civil Liberties are not temporary or discretionary. Society cannot exist as an educated and respectful union among variegated parts, when the sanctity of personhood is not respected and protected. 

Some might argue that the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen, a product of the Enlightenment, was the essence of glorifying Human Rights. This proclamation “brought together two streams of thought: one springing from the Anglo-American tradition of legal and constitutional guarantees of individual liberties, the other from the Enlightenment’s belief that reason should guide all human affairs.”  

The quest for reason has a sordid record. Before Jean-Paul Marat lost the last drop of blood soaking in his bath, the residue of collective madness in the name of the revolution stained the tub. Liberté, égalité, fraternité was practiced selectively. Such excess attained a raw level of retribution with each dropping of the guillotine blade. The “National Razor” became the great equalizer for priests and the aristocracy.  

Contrast this “Cult of Reason” with the National Law tradition best embodied by John Locke.  

“Locke speaks of a state of nature where men are free, equal, and independent. He champions the social contract and govern­ment by consent. He goes even farther than Hobbes in arguing that govern­ment must respect the rights of individuals. It was Locke’s formula for limited govern­ment, more than Hobbes’s that inspired the American Founding Fathers. But what is the basis of Locke’s theory? Is it natural law or Hobbesian natural right? The Founding Fathers, in the Declaration of Independence, speak of both natural rights and natural laws. Locke does likewise. Natural law and natural right may be combined, but if they are, one must take precedence over the other. Either the individual’s right, or his duty to moral law, must come first.” 

What presupposes this difference between natural law and natural rights? Who else could provide a definitive and valuable insight into this issue, but the celebrated polemicist Voltaire, the master of wit and elegant expression?  

“Voltaire is often thought of as an atheist, although he did in fact take part in religious activities and even built a chapel at his estate at Ferney. The chief source for the misconception is a line from one of his poems (called “Epistle to the author of the book, The Three Impostors”) which is usually translated as: “If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him”. Many commentators have argued that this is an ironical way of saying that that it does not matter whether God exists or not, although others claim that it is clear from the rest of the poem that any criticism was more focused towards the actions of organized religion, rather than towards the concept of religion itself.” 

Without the presence of the divine, the intrinsic source of the bestowed natural law could never justify the natural rights of the individual. In order to avoid this maxim, secular humanism has indeed invented their personal version of god, at the cost of denying and burying the one and only Supreme Being as a matter of course.    

The formative progression in thinking that developed institutional safeguards and instilled in the hearts and minds of mankind, respect for their neighbor, was not the product of enlightened evolution. The basis and origin of civil liberties is founded and rests upon the authority of Christian teachings.  

Illustrating the concern that Voltaire expresses about the Church, both its authority and its deviation from following the Gospels has only magnified during the last century. Religious liberty contradicts Tradition states: “The years following Vatican II have shown the truth of Leo XIII’s statement that religious liberty necessarily leads to immorality. In formerly Catholic countries, it is not only faith that has disappeared, but also Christian morality.” 

The declaration of Vatican II on religious liberty, Dignitatis Humanae (§2), affirms: 

This Vatican Synod declares that the human person has a right to religious freedom. This freedom means that all men are to be immune from coercion on the part of individuals or of social groups and of any human power, in such wise that in matters religious no one is to be forced to act in a manner contrary to his own beliefs. Nor is anyone to be restrained from acting in accordance with his own beliefs, whether privately or publicly, whether alone or in association with others, within due limits.” (Walter M. Abbott, S.J., Editor, The Documents of Vatican II (New York: The America Press, 1966), pp. 678-79.) 

What is noteworthy in this passage from Vatican II? 

First, Vatican II not only says that no one should be forced to believe (which the Church has always taught), but also claims that no one can be restrained from practicing the religion of his choice. 

Then, and this is paramount, Vatican II no longer speaks of tolerance alone, but actually recognizes a real natural right of the adepts of all religions not to be hindered in the practice of their religion. 

Finally, this right not only concerns practice in private, but also public worship and propagation of the religion. Thus Vatican II promotes something the Church always condemned previously. 

One need not be a believer to recognize that “a real natural right of the adepts of all religions” is a departure from millenniums of traditional Christian teachings. Only the misguided will read into Vatican II that civil liberties are being defended. The correct understanding is that the Roman Catholic Papacy’s authority is anything but universal.  

In an abstract authored by Antonio Thompson, Approaches to Teaching Civil Liberties in 21st Century, case studies are cited. The context used for civil liberty is obviously a secular definition. “Civil liberties, by any other name, are still liberties guaranteed by law . . . A textbook definition refers to civil liberties as “freedoms guaranteed to the individual” that “declare what the government cannot do”.

Accepting this designation avoids the fundamental source of where exactly does the freedom come from? In order to guarantee individual freedoms, much less authentic liberties, the very government that routinely violates the inalienable authority bestowed upon man by God is absent from the analysis. How can a civil self-ordained authority possess the legitimacy to protect the natural law when their entire conduct of existence is to oppress every human being under their control? 

People are usually obsessed with their own notion of their personage freedom. Much like the postulate that no one can be restrained from practicing the religion of his choice, the cultural relativist demands that they can exercise any conduct that makes them feel good . . . just so long as they do not hurt someone else, has become a quaint euphemism for what Voltaire would say: “Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.” 

Civil liberties are not championed by the masses because they are clueless as to the nature of the most basic of social relationship with their fellow citizens, and more important; especially what actual authenticity does the state possess, outside the shedding of your blood. 

Understanding the meaning of Inherent Autonomy is no longer taught nor is it practiced. When in doubt turn to a modern day sophist, like Hunter S. Thompson: “In a closed society where everybody’s guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.” He perfectly reflects the debased culture and the absurdity of life without a genuine acceptance of divine authority.  

Our Stuck on Stupid series addresses this aspect of the human condition. While politics is unavoidable, absence of belief is unredeemable. Yes, crooks permeate the planet, but repentance is found in accepting the gospels. 

A profound fear of God was instilled in the social order and most individuals adhered to the dread of eternal hell in past centuries. Towards a singular society is all the rage. There is no need for civil liberties if one becomes their own god.  

Why worry about the loss of your soul when you will live forever? The rejection of natural law is at the essence of the spiritual crisis that plagues Omega Man. The biological warfare of our collective Armageddon is an internal struggle in each of us, which can only be rescued by a revival in traditional values and faith.  

Trust in our fellow man, seldom seems to be warranted. Yet, adhering to a universal practice, based upon civil liberties is the belief that we all should share. Regain your deliverance from the Hobbesian State of Nature and believe that salvation is found in the blood of Christ.

Why The American Revolution Against “Lockdown” Must Begin Now

Thomas Hawk / Flickr

Thomas Hawk / Flickr

Is America now caught like a deer in the headlights staring at one “lockdown” event after another not knowing what to do? Or is everyone happy that lockdowns are happening so that the government can keep you safe? Are we not paying attention to what is slowly becoming the greatest freedom crisis ever in American history where every day is now 9/11? What’s missing now is an idea for a revolution against “lockdown” to declare it illegal and unconstitutional once and for all. Until this idea catches fire we are all in for some very dark days.

I came across a story this weekend about a shooting that took place at a Denver Colorado motorcycle expo between potentially 2 rival motorcycle gangs. The report was not conclusive about who the people involved in the shooting were. The mass media reported that there was one person killed and at least seven others wounded. It was a fight that ended ugly. For bikers and members on both sides it was likely very emotional and very tense situation that at least for now had ended.

Unlike the typical modern day often scripted mass shootings, there was no search for a gunman or suspects on the run who no one can see or confirm their identity until long after they are announced dead by the police and mainstream media. There were no patsies for the police to hunt down then murder. No sharpshooters taking aim at random people and no disgruntled shooters on the loose.

Despite the missing elements that would normally make this a mass shooting or a “terrorism” relate event, despite the missing “domestic extremists” element, the crazed lone shooter on psych medications and despite the missing “ISIS” component, we heard the term “lockdown” used; a word describing a police tactic that until just a few years ago was reserved for special situations.

The fact of the matter is that in America today, (as I have been writing about lately) with every passing week, “lockdown” is increasingly becoming a very common tactic, and this should concern all Americans. According to reports surrounding this latest shooting incident, the hospital where some of the wounded men were treated was immediately put into “lockdown”, meaning innocent people were immediately placed on temporary in-house arrest without being allowed to leave.

Sooner or later Americans will have to take a stand against lockdown because lockdown is tyranny and lockdown is martial law and neither has any place in America.

As I’ve said many times, the idea of “lockdown” was mostly introduced in 2013, primarily via two events that occurred just a few months apart. In February 2013, the Chris Dorner manhunt was nothing more than a planned assassination, then in April of 2013 we had the Boston bombing aftermath where they officially and boldly rolled out “lockdown” to the national audience. The control system has not looked back since.

Since that time, what we are seeing is an alarming and progressively increasing use of “lockdown” in late 2015 and early 2016 and nobody seems to be complaining. Where are the marches against lockdown? Where are the street rallies to end lockdown? Where are the Americans holding signs and banners in the streets reading things like “lockdown = martial law return to the legal system of rules now” or “ordinary arrests don’t require lockdowns, stop abusing the Constitutional rights of Americans” or even “Hitler did lockdowns, why are we doing it?”

These activists it seems don’t exist yet because we (America) are being fully conditioned to accept tyranny by the day. No one is even realizing that this past week is one of the first times if not the first time we’re hearing the term lockdown used more than once in one week in America. It was just a couple of months ago when the mass media used lockdown in Paris and then a few days later in Belgium to describe their “international manhunt”.

Will your neighborhood be “locked down” tomorrow? There isn’t anyone reading this article that can confidently say no, and that is serious cause for concern. It’s time to face the tyrannical reality America is in. They sold “lockdown” to Americans when no one was looking and everyone bought it. No one complained, no one thought it was odd, no one questioned it, and now martial law lockdown is here.

Millions of Americans should have taken to the streets after Boston bombing demanding justice for the people of Watertown, Massachusetts but no one did. Millions should have taken up the cause of justice on behalf of Chris Dorner’s tyrannical manhunt but no one did. And we all watched in 2005 as FEMA approved the unconstitutional invasion of American homes following hurricane Katrina in 2005. All of these events were leading to one thing: introduction of martial law in America. Now it seems too late. Martial law is apparently here. After you read this article and as you sleep tonight, realize that the police can declare lockdown in your neighborhood and there is nothing you can do to stop this. No one apparently saw this coming, no one protested, no one stopped it and no one took action. So now we all have to deal with this new reality.

Solutions

So let me be the first to suggest that it’s time to raise awareness, make noise and draft legislation in your town to STOP lockdown dead in its track. Start thinking of how and when you want to take action, how you want to word your letters to your elected officials and what you want to say in your city council meetings, but start doing it. Otherwise, realize that your home is no longer a safe place from government. Realize that the Constitutional protection you thought you had against illegal search and seizure is one lockdown away from going up in smoke. Which means that you are ONE crisis actor staged event away from having police enter your home. Realize that you are one false flag event away from having police rummage through your home at will. Think about that!

More importantly, realize that it’s time to end lockdown. Understand that America did just fine before lockdowns began and it will do just fine after lockdown is completely abolished and ruled uncontitutional.

I want to be part of the revolution to abolish lockdown, don’t you? If revolution today starts with the freedom to spread revolutionary ideas then let me suggest this idea. Let’s abolish lockdown before it’s too late. It’s time to take a stand against lockdown in your local community. Let’s challenge our local community leaders to demand that local and federal police prove to us the effectiveness and purpose of their lockdowns and how they make America safer. Let’s challenge them to give us one example when lockdown was effective. It’s time to force “lockdown” itself into the court system for its day in court.

Picture an America and a world without lockdown. Recall the days when police went about their business of searching and arresting suspects based on the information they had, and when their failure to capture wanted suspects was dealt with by implementing standard police investigation operations. We saw these police investigation techniques in every cop TV show growing up. What we’re seeing now is a lust and obsession to want to catch every suspect dead or alive now or never. We’re told that all of life must stop until their suspect is apprehended or as we commonly see today, murdered. We’ve put such a high value of importance on police searches that we’ve relinquished our rights to them and bowed at their alter. This police worship has now come at the highest price possible, costing us all our natural born rights and freedom from tyranny and illegal government searches and quartering in violation of the third and fourth amendment.

Lockdown has forced me to change how I think. It really hits home when you think of the possibilities of what could happen at any moment and it forces me to re-evaluate what my priorities are when it comes to activism. For anyone who thinks this issue is no big deal or that we can’t stop lockdowns so we might as well accept it, I want to challenge you to show me any other government action that is immediately more threatening than lockdown. Lockdown is equivalent to having someone point a loaded gun your head in real-time. When it’s happening, all of a sudden nothing else matters. Once lockdown begins, you are it. During lockdown you could be mistaken for someone else as occurred in the Chris Dorner assassination manhunt and your words and actions could be misconstrued in a different way. During lockdown you could more readily be accused of resisting; and if you are a gun owner attempting to protect your home not realizing what is happening, all your rights just went out the window and you could pay for this misunderstanding with your life or jail time.

Will America and humanity around the globe stand up to lockdown or do we not have the will? What does your local community think about the morality, legality and Constitutionality of lockdown? Has the issue been brought up yet? Does anyone have the courage to push back on the police state? Now is the time for action if you care about freedom. If you agree please share this message.

Organizing Against Tyranny

sonsofliberty

My work and my thoughts lately have turned toward a now constant focus on the concepts of organization, more in respect to underlying philosophy rather than hard, fast rules and structures. If you are one of the slithering acolytes of political theory elitist Saul Alinsky (and you haven’t felt the inclination to jump face first into the nearest punji pit), then the primary tool of organization for you is to lie, and to lie often. Tricking people into action using false premises, telling people what they want to hear rather than opening their eyes to reality, is perhaps the easiest way to build a movement. Of course, that movement will eventually destroy itself as the lies begin to inhibit progress rather than inspire it. But in most cases, by the time the organization self-destructs it has already been exploited for the nefarious purpose it was intended.

For the liberty movement, the movement against globalization and forced centralization of financial and political power, lies are simply not an option. The internationalists have already cornered the market on lies, so we must take a completely contrary approach. We must organize around the truth, no matter how painful it happens to be. This is a much more difficult prospect, one many people don’t understand or appreciate.

There are a lot of complaints in the movement about the lack of what they consider effective organization, and the frustration is in some ways beginning to evolve into fear. Here are some core inconsistencies I believe are at the heart of organizational problems within the liberty movement and what we can do to solve them.

Re-examining Our Concept Of Real Organization

For multiple generations, Americans and most of the rest of the world have been conditioned to believe that organization is a top-down affair that requires a central leadership that hands orders across the ranks of a rigid structure. The people within the structure operate as parts of a greater machine, and the success of the machine is (supposedly) directly related to how close the smaller parts (people) work together and follow those orders. Unfortunately, many activists in the liberty movement also assume that this is what an organization is and how it works.

Surely, there is a need for people with a talent to inspire others to thought and to action. But these men and women are nothing unless they can motivate individuals to eventually take their own initiative without orders. A true leader is a teacher — nothing more. And if he really cares about the future prosperity of the people he is teaching, that teacher’s objective will be for his students to exceed his own capabilities and to become independent in their accomplishments.

For a movement driven by a desire for the preservation of freedom and sovereignty, organization requires structure, but not rigidity or centralized leadership. The collectivist model of the human machine or hive is a flawed model that oppresses individual contributions that could be revolutionary. The corporate model, for instance, is a perfect example of an organization built mostly on lies (just look at the inconsistencies of real debts versus real profits for most major companies) and that fuels itself on the integration of people as replaceable gears and bolts on a rusted, shuddering Ferris wheel ride. Corporations might appear to make money, but they never meet their ultimate potential as organizations because most of the people within them could not care less about the purpose or even health of the system as long as they continue to draw a paycheck. When an organization merely limps along on the thin thread of the survival principle, this is the opposite of success.

The liberty movement has to abandon outmoded and ill-conceived notions of mainstream organizational models and take more stock in decentralized activity. A lack of an arbitrarily designated pecking order or the pyramid scheme of top-down branching management is a good thing for our cause, not a disadvantage.

Legitimate Structure And Purpose

Just because a movement is decentralized does not mean it should lack a foundation, and that foundation should be composed of a primary purpose and a primary plan of action. This is where some liberty activists seem to become most nihilistic in their thinking.

They have been looking for top-down leadership, which doesn’t exist and shouldn’t exist. They have been looking for a set plan of attack, which no one can seem to agree on. And they moan relentlessly about what they see as the lack of a singular, universal vision of what the ultimate goal should be. I have heard the argument more than once that the liberty movement will fail because victory would require us to all agree on one ideological vision and a rather singular strategy. What they don’t appear to realize is that a vision and strategy already exist that most of us agree on.

Again, our society has been conditioned to see through only a very narrow window of what constitutes organization that demands we adhere to the top-down philosophy. However, most liberty activists already agree on the bottom-up goal of self-reliance and self-sufficiency in all things, from food and water to education, security and governance.

There will be no mass majority movement on Washington in a “V for Vendetta”-style march led by some heroic masked man. And even if there were, it would accomplish nothing unless the top of the globalist pyramid was toppled (Occupy Wall Street is a good example of how such theatrics fail). This goal of a mass awakening is a common fantasy and an impractical one; but self-sufficiency, mutual aid and mutual defense are realistic efforts, given the likely short amount of time we have left. The universal vision is right in front of our faces and always has been: to break away from the corrupt mainstream system, to remove our dependency, to provide our own necessities and, thus, to remove our consent.

Every liberty proponent in America should be able to pursue this goal without prompting from any centralized leadership, and it encompasses every aspect of the fight against tyranny. Make your family self-sufficient and secure without aid of government. Make your neighborhood self-sufficient and secure. Make your town or county self-sufficient and secure. If the elites try to stop you, fight back and from a position on the moral high ground. If enough communities defend themselves the prospect of martial law or totalitarian control becomes systemically impossible, politically and strategically. I rarely run into liberty advocates who disagree with this plan, yet they do nothing and refuse to even make the attempt because they are still waiting around for someone to give them a plan. Stop waiting around for the next Gandhi or George Washington and do what you already know needs to be done. It is truly as simple as that.

Changing Our Idea Of Leadership

As stated earlier, you do not need a man on a white horse to ride in and save you from the terrifying idea of self-responsibility. If you are waiting for someone to come down off the mountain with magical stone tablets and lead you to the promised land, you are going to find yourself rather disappointed. Despite popular belief, men do not organize other men; only ideas given focus organize men. Men rally around that which they love or that which they hate. Leadership is often incidental, or sadly, manipulative.

So, by extension, we can conclude that to develop a strong organization, the ideal must be honest and honorable, the plan must be decentralized and natural for individuals to implement, and those who coordinate the organizational efforts must do so with the realization that they are stewards of the principles of that movement and that those principles are more important than their glory. If activists plan to become followers of anything, it should be solid principles. Leaders are secondary.

Destructive Egomania

In my time in the movement, I have seen relatively good men with sound ideals exhibit insane behavior and absurd motives when exposed to a mere 15 minutes of fame. Ego is truly the greatest Achilles’ heel of any activist organization. This is a fact that corrupt governments are highly aware of.

If you look into the history of the FBI’s subversive Cointelpro efforts from the 1950s onward, you will find a common tactic used to dismantle anti-establishment groups, which is to sow discord among organizers and coordinators by feeding egos and turning them against each other. Like the ring of power in the “Lord of The Rings” books, the desire for leadership can blind people to the greater cause. They develop delusions of grandeur, thinking they are the next guru, the next prophet, the next man to lead the charge to permanent historical stardom. Each person believes that if only he had the ring, if only he were the leader, he could resist the temptations of power and achieve what others could not. And so he refuses to work with others or to share the stage, or he even attempts to subvert or co-opt the legitimate accomplishments of more capable men.

The only solution is to cast off the ring forever, to care nothing for the supposed glories of leadership and to work only for the betterment of others.

I have also seen people within the movement fall victim to the admiration of their own fan base. Positive feedback from readers is certainly helpful, but I would be writing everything I write now even if every email I received were laced with vitriol (sometimes they are). The truth does not require fans; it functions fine without them. Liberty champions do, on occasion, receive letters of adoration — from being compared to Thomas Paine all the way to being labeled the next Jesus (the former being flattering and the latter being just plain weird). The problem is not public appreciation; it is the cult of celebrity that many Americans have grown too attached to, as well as the fact that some activists in more public positions have a hard time handling positive attention without their heads expanding 10 sizes too big.

The fact is I don’t matter, liberty leaders and personalities don’t matter, the limelight doesn’t matter, and the level of our fan base doesn’t matter. All that matters is how effectively and efficiently we can get the facts to the public. Organization suffers when the cult of celebrity takes over, whether in the minds of activists or in the minds of the people who represent them in the media.

Fear Of Risk Leads To Inaction

In my work with groups such as Oath Keepers and its Community Preparedness Team program, I have taken what some might consider sizable risks, and I have witnessed others who have gone even further. And in this risk I have seen the kinds of progress in organization I have never seen anywhere else. Without risk, there can be no organization against tyranny and, thus, no chance of success. If you are afraid to be put on the naughty list in the National Security Agency database, if you are afraid you might lose your job, if you are afraid you might be labeled an “extremist” or if you are afraid of uneducated public perception and this has prevented you from building mutual aid and defense groups where you live, then you have already lost everything. Fear leads to inaction, and inaction is death.

I have even witnessed members of organizations attempt to prevent others from taking positive measures like training for community defense because they are so fearful of what might happen due to their affiliation they will actually work against the better goals of the people around them. All I can say is that fear-driven people have to be removed from organizational environments, or they will poison the waters until the entire venture flatlines. Risk is inevitable. It is unavoidable. All anti-establishment, anti-tyranny movements depend on it. The more people willing to take risks, the more effectively “safe” that risk becomes. This includes the fear of defense and the fear of losing one’s life in the process. Every scenario, even the worst-case scenario, has to be considered and then set aside as irrelevant. Fear has no place in the minds or actions of liberty champions. Remove fear, and world-changing organization becomes possible.

New Gov’t Task Force Calls For Screening Every Adult, Pregnant Women For Depression

mind control

By: Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post |

A new recommendation has been released by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, a government advisory group that is now recommending all adults be routinely screened for depression as part of their healthcare.

The first part of the recommendation suggests that all adults be screened, but singles out pregnant women and new mothers as a target population. The second part of the recommendation mentions the need to ensure that systems are in place that will allow for the proper diagnosis and treatment of people who are singled out through this screening. The guidelines, which were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, did not specify how often adults should be screened.

In regards to the implementation of these guidelines, the Task Force states:

The USPSTF recommends that screening be implemented with adequate systems in place. “Adequate systems in place” refers to having systems and clinical staff to ensure that patients are screened and, if they screen positive, are appropriately diagnosed and treated with evidence-based care or referred to a setting that can provide the necessary care. These essential functions can be provided through a wide range of different arrangements of clinician types and settings. In the available evidence, the lowest effective level of support consisted of a designated nurse who advised resident physicians of positive screening results and provided a protocol that facilitated referral to evidence-based behavioral treatment.1 At the highest level, support included screening; staff and clinician training (1- or 2-day workshops); clinician manuals; monthly training lectures; academic detailing; materials for clinicians, staff, and patients; an initial visit with a nurse specialist for assessment, education, and discussion of patient preferences and goals; a visit with a trained nurse specialist for follow-up assessment and ongoing support for medication adherence; a visit with a trained therapist for CBT; and a reduced copayment for patients referred for psychotherapy.2, 3

Multidisciplinary team–based primary care that includes self management support and care coordination has been shown to be effective in management of depression. These components of primary care are detailed in recommendations from the Community Preventive Services Task Force.4 It recommends collaborative care for the treatment of major depression in adults 18 years and older on the basis of strong evidence of effectiveness in improving short-term treatment outcomes. As defined, collaborative care and disease management of depressive disorders include a systematic, multicomponent, and team-based approach that “strengthens and supports self-care, while assuring that effective medical, preventive, and health maintenance interventions take place” to improve the quality and outcome of patient care.4

While attempting to develop a system in which individuals suffering from mental illness and mental disorders including depression are able to receive adequate treatment is a laudable goal in and of itself, there is a very fine line between assisting in an individual’s recovery, prying into their personal business, and violating their rights.

Notice, for instance, that nowhere in the recommendations is there the acknowledgement or discussion about whether or not these individuals suffering from depression have a choice to seek or continue treatment. The discussion centers only around identification and the implementation of a treatment plan.

What about individuals who don’t want to seek counseling, take antidepressants, or otherwise engage in a “treatment policy?” In addition, what about those individuals who are diagnosed as depressed for legitimate reasons or as a natural reaction to a specific event? What about the over-diagnosing of individuals as depressed when that is simply not the case at all?

Read for instance the U.S. News and World Report article by Lauran Neergaard which reads more as a press release than anything else. Neergaard attempts to explain the need for screening in the following way.

She writes:

Depression can go unrecognized, especially if patients don’t seek a diagnosis. Updating 2009 guidelines, the task force reviewed years of research and said Tuesday that screening for depression remains an important part of primary care for adults of all ages. This time around, the guideline separately addresses pregnant and postpartum women, concluding they, too, benefit from screening.

A variety of screening questionnaires are available, such as one that asks how often, over the last two weeks, patients have felt bad about themselves or felt like they’re a failure, had little interest in doing things or experienced problems sleeping, sleeping or concentrating.

Still undetermined, the task force said, is how often to screen, given that a person’s circumstances and risk could change over time.

Those aren’t new recommendations; several other health groups also have long urged depression screening, although there’s no data on how often it’s done. But the task force says one key is that appropriate follow-up be available to accurately diagnose those flagged by screening — and then to choose treatments that best address each person’s symptoms with the fewest possible side effects.

While examining the possibility that a medical issue or symptoms being suffered by a patient can be linked to depression, the idea that catch-all screenings should be in place is not only reminiscent of Brave New World, but is taken directly from the book. So are, I might add, the solutions to it.

Still, the constant screening of adults without a shred of concern for their own choices and decisions, cannot help but remind us of Scotland’s horrific practice and program called GIRFEC (Getting It Right For Every Child). Based on the idea of “supporting the wellbeing of children,” Scotland is now witnessing an approach in which every child is now given their own caseworker and every action, reaction, behavior and feeling of both the child and the parents is literally scrutinized by government. The result is that children are being ripped from loving homes. In homes where children do reside, parents are often so terrified of having them taken that anything resembling a normal family life brings the fear of a government social worker to the forefront of a parent’s concern.

Notice also how Neergaard describes the screening process and the questionnaires that are available. Some questionnaires ask questions like how often patients have felt bad about themselves or how often they have felt like they are a failure over the last two weeks. Others ask if the patient has little interest in doing things while others want to know if the patient has had trouble sleeping or concentrating. These are legitimate questions, but the answers to these questions, particularly if they are given to a medical doctor, psychiatrist or social worker, whose views of the world are dangerously narrow, could have far reaching and long lasting ramifications for the unsuspecting patient.

Parents may be visited by a child services agent, who generally is more than eager to confiscate their children. Some patients may be visited by a law enforcement agent, demanding they turn over their guns. Others may be forcibly hospitalized. All this because they made the mistake of trusting their physician or answering a question honestly.

Not only that, but look at the nature of the questions. In a country with massive unemployment yet still a notoriously consumerist and money-obsessed society, how could one who spends hours a day staring at a box that reinforces their own inadequacy not feel bad about themselves? And how bad is bad? Is bad feeling like you’re worth absolutely nothing or is bad feeling like the jogging suit you’re wearing makes you look ridiculous in front of people who are better dressed?

How often have you felt like a failure? Try asking this question to an individual who has lost his job because it has been sent to China so big corporations can reap bigger profits. Or perhaps to someone who is in the process of losing their home because they could not pay their mortgage after they lost their job. Or perhaps their wife became ill and, in the freest country in the world, they went bankrupt in order to save her life? Suppose if one asked that question of a man who had recently been released from prison for the hardened crime of possessing a plant, knowing his youth and any ability for his future are now virtually gone. Is it conceivable that these people may feel like failures?

Of course, the recommendations also suggests going after other easy targets such as pregnant women and those who have just given birth. These two population groups are notoriously in flux in terms of their emotions due to the fact that they are carrying a living human being in their bodies or have just given birth to one. Both exhibit a number of blips on the radar screen for any fanatical mental health professional to seize upon if they so desire.

As already mentioned, one of the most concerning aspects of these recommendations is the utter lack of concern or even acknowledgement of the patient’s right to refuse treatment or even refuse to be screened.

Allowing doctors, social workers or any other authority figure to violate rights based upon their conclusion that a person is suffering from a mental disorder is a slippery slope indeed.

In fact, it is such a slippery slope, that it would be best to stay far away from the edge. Scientific and mental health dictatorship has been experimented with in the past – we would be wise not to allow ourselves to repeat it.

US Collapse Underway As Government Preps A Civil Force! Crash Worse Then 1929/2008 Combined (VIDEO)

Urban Military Martial Law

“…the battlefield may no longer be limited to regions afar, but may include the U.S. homeland.”

That is the unnerving quote found in a government study titled Unconventional Operational Concept and the Homeland.

While American’s may not yet feel like we are living in the middle of a battlefield, we could very well become caught in the coming battle many are projecting for the the near future, at least that is what the Department of Defense wants citizens to believe.

Considering the United States government has been significantly increasing their training preparations with massive military drills like Jade Helm and the stockpiling of ammo, guns, body armor and the like. The possibility of some type of crisis or the declaration of martial law could become a reality a lot sooner than I would like to believe.

Most recently, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has made martial law a reality by fast-tracking a broad authorization for the use of military force (AUMF), granting the president unlimited war powers both internationally and domestically. Defense One reported that, “The Authorization for use of Military Force put forward by Mc­Con­nell would not restrict the presidents use of ground troops, nor have any limits related to time or geography.”

In the report below I delve into all of the above and more! Additionally, I prove we are headed straight for civil unrest, martial law, and an economic collapse….

The Unconventional Operational Concept and the Homeland Report was prepared as part of the Defense Science Board 2007 Summer Study on Challenges to Military Operations in Support of National Interests. It delves into the possibility of a catastrophe or crisis here at home while our military is deployed abroad at war or some other military issue. If that happens then the DOD will be called upon to act here in America. This document ensures preparations for that.

Here are a few important points contained in the report:

Page iii-

“…the battlefield may no longer be limited to regions afar, but may include the U.S. homeland.”

Page vii-

Assuring Deployment and Supply: Three areas seemed most important for DOD attention: (1) critical infrastructure protection and/or resiliency, (2) logistics, and (3) family and individual preparedness. A fourth area, military installation protection and preparedness, was the subject of a recent DSB task force.

Page xiii-

“In the interagency arena, a positive example of how things should work can be found in the Joint Interagency Task Force – South. This pairing of military and civilian government agencies under a unified command structure provides for routine interaction between the entities that will need to work together effectively during a crisis.”

Page xvi-

“Possibly the most neglected member of the homeland security/defense team is the private sector. The private sector owns most of the infrastructure and will be the most effective in protecting (given timely and adequate threat information) and restoring its function after an attack. As such, it must be an integral member of the team alongside government actors in federal planning and information-sharing activities.

“Relationships between sector owners and operators and their federal agency interfaces are uneven—a striking condition that emerged during the course of this study. In some cases, especially where there is a history of a non-regulatory partnership, like the defense industrial base and energy sectors, relationships were positive, characterized by open and frequent communication and information sharing. Others were more one-way, with the federal “partner” more controlling and didactic. The realization that the sectors have more intimate knowledge of not only their own sectors, but their ties to other sectors, has yet to be well understood and embraced at the federal level.”

Page xvi-

“Secretary of Defense leadership in the interagency is needed to address current deficiencies in national plans and strategies and support for domestic threat assessment.”

Page 4-5:

Consequences of Catastrophe, how our America will fall apart:

1. Failure of critical infrastructure- lack of goods and services

2. Insufficient professional resources to deal with multiple catastrophes

3. National Will hard to focus- Public anger manifested through misguided, vigilante-style attacks.

4. Impaired ability of national, state, and local gov to govern- lack of, or confusing, communications, fractured local authority, insufficient, disorganized emergency response. Without adequate preparedness at all levels of government, across the private sector, and among the populace, the post-attack results could indeed become catastrophic.

Some outcomes might include:

– Flight. Remaining in place would prove untenable for many people for actual or perceived reasons.

– Breakdown of mutual aid agreements. Resource-intensive incidents are typically handled through mutual aid agreements within the National Guard, first responder, and medical communities. When under attack, however, leaders in unaffected regions might opt not to support interregional common aid agreements and to conserve their resources in case they are needed locally.

– Breakdown of civil order. Looting, vigilante actions, gang violence, riots, and civil disobedience would further stress first responders.

– Failure of quarantine. Many will be reluctant to stay confined.

–  Hoarding. People will rush to amass excess goods to stock up after the attack.

– “Shoot your neighbor.” As people perceive the social and civil situation deteriorating, they will escalate the force they use as a first resort to protect home and family from interlopers (“shoot first, ask questions later”).

– Rampant rumors. Media will promulgate messages from many sources without confirmation.

– Population center “meltdowns.” Many U.S. population centers are located where life without infrastructure services will be difficult to sustain, such as in the desert southwest in summer and northern cities in winter.

“The study found nothing in legislation, directives, or other documents to prevent a moreaggressive posture and engagement by DOD.”

Page 11:

The Posse Comitatus Act is typically viewed as a restriction on DOD engagement since it punishes those who “…except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully use any part of the Army or Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws….” A statutory exception to posse comitatus allows the President or other key government officials special authorizations for engaging the military in domestic situations. That authority has been exercised sparingly; examples include granting the U.S. Coast Guard law enforcement authorities and allowing the military to share information and equipment with civilian law enforcement, while prohibiting its ability to make arrests or conduct searches and seizures.

Page 12:

“After the incidents on September 11, 2001, the nation was forced into a new level of national preparedness against attack on the homeland. The Department of Homeland Security was created to take the lead role in homeland security.”

Page 20: Hypothetical scenario and what they will do:

For purposes of this discussion, the study assumed a multi-point attack on the United States that is severe enough for the President to declare the nation “under attack,” with federal authorities in overall control. Under such conditions, national resources will be stretched to the point where demands for national and international requests will go unmet. Local resources will also be overwhelmed and could face societal panic, if people feel localities are unable to provide law and order, medical care, municipal services (water, refuse), food, energy, trade, transportation, information system availability, and protection from the elements. Under such a scenario, two critical warfighting requirements occur simultaneously: defending against domestic catastrophe and ensuring deployment and supply. Domestic catastrophes occur in an environment of a large, undisciplined population, and these violent attacks can have a destabilizing effect on society. On the other hand, military deployment and supply take place in a disciplined organization, trained to accomplish the mission. Yet the two are linked—military deployment and supply is critically dependent on infrastructure elements that may be destroyed or severely compromised in a domestic catastrophe. Furthermore, both missions will draw on many of the same people and equipment, as discussed in the previous chapter. The protection challenge for the U.S infrastructure is significant, as illustrated in Table 5.

Page 32:

“Americans have been conditioned over many decades to assume disaster relief assistance will come from communities adjacent to military installations and that other federal and state assets will be available.

“In the event of coordinated asymmetric attacks in many parts of the country and/or simultaneously with a natural disaster or avian flu pandemic, emergency responders and relief organizations may not be able to move across local or state borders. Resources will be severely strained and responders will be busy dealing with or preparing to deal with disaster on their home turf.”

Page 36:

“According to FEMA, there are over 2,200 Citizens Corp Councils serving areas containing 75 percent of the total U.S. population.”

Page 43- FUSION CENTERS!!!!!!!!!

“Since 9/11 many state and local jurisdictions have established “fusion” centers for the purpose of collecting information on terrorist threats from a wide range of sources—including criminal investigations, the media, and tips from the public.”

“Today 46 states and the District of Columbia have operating fusion centers to create a fuller picture of potential threats in their area.”

Page 44:

“The consensus among these sectors suggested that the GCC/SCC “partnership” concept is good because it provides an opportunity to build trust among all stakeholders.”

Are US Soldiers to Be Deployed to America Soon? (VIDEO)

Soldiers in America

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again . . .?”

It seems as if this is the motto of the controlling elite around the world, and has been since the dawn of time, regarding their desire to rule over everyone else.  A recent economic summit tabulated that just 62 people have the same wealth as HALF of the entire world!  This is definitive proof of the elite’s supreme control over the rest of us.

The reason the United States was formed, we are led to believe, was to leave the rule of a single man, King George the 3rd of England, and to create a government “Of the People, By the People, and For the People.” When the King of England used their own soldiers against their brethren, this was the moment the people of America said “Enough!”

To tell you the truth, I do not know much about the details of the standoff in Oregon between American citizens and the federal government, which is supposed to be their servants, yet I do find it very odd that there was virtually no mention of the event in the national “news” until someone got killed, and only then a few words were devoted to this historical event.  It seems to me, if citizens are rising up against the federal government because they believe their servants are trying to become their masters, then this should be the top story on the news, every day, until it is resolved.  The fact that it is not, is proof itself that the “news” is controlled by those who control the federal government, the billionaires and trillionaires of the world, who do not want this type of revelation to spread, which could lead to their own downfall.

When “republican” Mitch McConnell’s own top Senate team knew nothing of his recanting of offering the president king like powers until after the media did, it shows the degree to which corruption and manipulation permeates our government.  When the president said last term, “I hear what you’re saying”, to the American people who were overwhelming against giving a trillion dollars to bankers who squandered their depositor’s money, and then gave it to them anyway, it proves beyond a doubt that our country is no longer “Of the People, By the People, and For the People.”  It is for the 62 people who put their friends in office, for the very purpose of favoring them.  President Woodrow Wilson said the United States stopped being a government for the people 100 years ago, so how much worse must it be now?

In this week’s episode of Conspiracy Corner News, I will discuss how the presidency has morphed into a Kingship, the very thing our country is suppose to oppose, at the precise direction of the ruling elite.  This is far from being one president’s solitary fault.  This has been going on from both “parties” for at least the last 100 years, proving that the alleged rivalry between “democrats” and “republicans” is merely a show for the citizens, like a fake wrestling match, to hide the identity of the puppet-masters above them, who are really controlling the destiny of our country and the world, for their own benefit, at the cost of everyone else.

What will it take to reset our government and the liberties of the individual?

Red Alert: Secret ISIS War Powers Act Covertly Allows Martial Law On US Streets (VIDEOS)

Martial-Law

By: The Voice of Reason |

When it comes to the federal government as of late, there is bad news, and then there is really really really bad news, and this falls under the second category I mentioned… the really really really bad kind. This is a head scratcher to end all political head scratchers if you will… OR… if you look at this more cynically, does it make perfect sense considering the sick individuals we have in Congress?

As you’ll learn in the second video below, late Wednesday night, while the nation’s capital braced for a once in a century type snow storm, RHINO’s in the United States Senate were brewing up a storm of their own, a megastorm set to be unleashed on the American people. In a very sneaky, almost Dingy Harry type way, Republicans like Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc­Connell and Lindsey Graham were busy invoking Senate Rule 14, somewhat of an unknown Rule to anyone in Congress still possessing any ethics or morals, to craft a bill invoking Martial Law.

The same Republican establishment that knows full well it’s hated by both its opponents, and those within its base alike, wrote the Authorization for the Use of Military Force to fight the Islamic State group, but they did so in such a way as to make it a living nightmare for the American people. First, the new U.S. ISIS War Powers Act for the use of military force against ISIS allows the President to deploy U.S. military troops on U.S. soil without restrictions, meaning no limits on the number of ground troops deployed, no limitations on geographical areas, and no limits on the time frames for troop deployments, all under the “guise” of fighting terror.

Please recall that just last week, Navy Seals Were Told To Treat the American Public As Enemies or “Potential Terrorists” Amid a Two Year Long ”Training Exercise” Beginning in January. Do I even need to discuss how ridiculous this new bill sounds? Under Senate Rule 14, McConnell can spring a vote on this at any time without warning, and if passed by the Senate (you know every Democrat would be on board), that means that Congress is willing to give the same Barack Obama who was Caught Smuggling In Up To 100,000 Refugees Per Year on UPS Cargo Planes, and the same Barack Obama who cared so little about potential terrorism from Muslim refugees that he Promised to Veto Any Bill Increasing the Screening Measures for Said Refugees, the raw power to suspend the rule of law, and become judge, jury, and executioner himself.

The ISIS War Powers Act will allow that, all while giving Obama full use of the U.S. military (Or Don’t Forget the United Nations Multinational Forces Already on U.S. Soil) to do as he pleases! Try not to forget, during times the military is being used in a policing capacity, an act formerly outlawed domestically for the last 138 years “pre-Obama,” federal statute 10 U.S. Code § 332 now says “unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized,” permits the federal government from being demonstrated against. An act of demonstration, or the most benign demonstrations of civil disobedience gives the government the authority to take “deadly action” against the public  because there are no clear distinctions on when the use of lethal and nonlethal force is appropriate.

Yell “Conspiracy Theorist” all you want. The actual law can be read with your own two eyes. Unites States Code 332 (10 U.S. Code § 332)

There have also been changes at the Pentagon that give the Army the authority to Classify Journalists as ‘Belligerents’ Who Can Be Shot on Sight If Need Be. When might that be necessary? Oh, I don’t know… maybe when people are spreading truth via alternative forms of media, because the mainstream media is so in bed with the government… As a classic example, right now the FBI Is Attempting to Shut Down Alternative Forms of Media With Regard to the Oregon Standoff (Listen to a Recorded Call).

So, what in God’s name are McConnell and Graham thinking? I think I have an idea…

One thing is clear: That they are NOT thinking of the American people. Recall what I said over and over two weeks ago leading up to the January 13th vote by the RNC about whether or not they were going to take up a Resolution Drafted For Obama’s Impeachment Consisting of 48 Separate Criminal and Treasonous Charges.

At the time, Committeeman Dave Agema was spearheading the effort, and he made it clear, as did I, that without pressure from We the People, the RNC would never take up the articles that detailed Obama’s “malfeasance, misconduct and abuse of the Oval Office,” including the IRS targeting of conservative organizations, and bypassing Congress with the use of executive action on key issues, as well as “aiding and abetting known enemies of the United States,” citing the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas and the Taliban among others. Why wouldn’t they take up the Articles of Impeachment because it was the right thing to do, and without pressure from We the People making their phones ring until they broke?

Simply put: Because no member of Congress, not from either party, cares about ANYTHING more than they care about there own seat at the table. Period. Trying to impeach the first black President, when they weren’t getting any pressure from We the People? That would have been political suicide, so it’s no surprise they did nothing.

NOW, when you look at who the GOP presidential nominee is likely to be: either Ted Cruz or Donald Trump, perhaps BOTH, the “establishment” knows their preverbal seat with either will be at the “Kids” table moving forward, so I submit to you that this underhanded sneaky Senate Rule 14 INSANE bill, is their “break open glass in case of emergency plan” if our absurdly corrupt electoral process doesn’t somehow end up with Bush winning the nomination despite all odds.

JEB: THE ESTABLISHMENT’S PICK AT ANY COST!

jeb

Conservative Tribune Reports:

While parts of the nation braced for Winter Storm Jonas, Senate Ma­Majority­ Lead­er Mitch Mc­Connell was busy preparing the way for a proposal on the floor that had many concerned.

The Authorization for the Use of Military Force, written by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is packaged as a proposal to fight the Islamic State group — but it would also allow the president to deploy military forces anywhere he chooses and for as long as he wants.

Simply put, the AUMF “would not re­strict the pres­id­ent’s use of ground troops, nor have any lim­its re­lated to time or geo­graphy,” according to Defense One.

Graham, who has been critical of President Barack Obama’s handling of Syria and Islamic State group, said the AUMF is designed not to put limitations on where, when or how the United States military pursued the group.

Not surprisingly, some Republicans found issues with the proposal. Sen­ate For­eign Re­la­tions Chair­man Bob Cork­er said there were still a wide range of opinions on the matter.

It’s been a difficult measure to pass, as Senate members argue over how to put restrictions on the use of force. Even as Obama tried to pass his own version of the bill last year, members said that before they could support such a measure, they would need additional restrictions on troop levels and geographic boundaries.

This proposal is quite a turn for McConnell, who has stayed away from the issue in the past. Clearly, something has changed his RINO mind.

It’s also surprising that he would clear a path for a proposal that would give Obama virtually unlimited war powers — something no president should ever be given.

H/T Right Wing News

Your News Wire reports:

Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists (AUMF) permits a state of martial law to exist throughout the United States, as U.S. military personnel will, for the first time, patrol the streets of America.

The new AUMF was slipped in by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who invoked Rule 14, surprising the Senate.

Sarah Mimms for Defense One noted that invoking “Rule 14″ sets up the authorization for a future vote, but does not put it on the calendar, meaning a vote could come at any time. The resolution already has four Republican cosponsors: Senators Lindsey Graham, Daniel Coats, Joni Ernst, and Orrin Hatch.

The AUMF put forward by McConnell would not restrict the president’s use of ground troops, nor have any limits related to time or geography.

Defenseone.com reports:

Sen­ate Ma­jor­ity Lead­er Mitch Mc­Con­nell offered mem­bers a snow-week­end sur­prise late Wed­nes­day night: Quietly tee­ing up a de­bate on the leg­al un­der­pin­ning for the fight against IS­IS.

After months of wor­ry­ing that such a res­ol­u­tion—known as an au­thor­iz­a­tion for the use of mil­it­ary force—would tie the next pres­id­ent’s hands, Mc­Con­nell’s move to fast-track the meas­ure sur­prised even his top deputy, Sen­ate Ma­jor­ity Whip John Cornyn, who was un­aware that Mc­Con­nell had set up the au­thor­iz­a­tion.

“He did?” Cornyn asked Na­tion­al Journ­al on Thursday morn­ing.

The AUMF put for­ward by Mc­Con­nell would not re­strict the pres­id­ent’s use of ground troops, nor have any lim­its re­lated to time or geo­graphy. Nor would it touch on the is­sue of what to do with the 2001 AUMF, which the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion has used to at­tack IS­IS des­pite that au­thor­iz­a­tion’s in­struc­tions to use force against those who planned the 9/11 ter­ror­ist at­tacks. By con­trast, the leg­al au­thor­ity put for­ward by the ad­min­is­tra­tion last Feb­ru­ary wouldn’t au­thor­ize “en­dur­ing of­fens­ive ground com­bat op­er­a­tions” and would have ended three years after en­act­ment, un­less reau­thor­ized.

After sit­ting on the pres­id­ent’s pro­posed AUMF for nearly a year, amid deep in­fight­ing in the Sen­ate over the meas­ure, Mc­Con­nell’s move came as a sur­prise to many mem­bers. Just in Decem­ber, Mc­Con­nell dis­missed the idea of bring­ing up a new au­thor­iz­a­tion, telling re­port­ers: “It’s clear the pres­id­ent does not have a strategy in place, so it would be hard to fig­ure out how to au­thor­ize a non-strategy.”

Don Stew­art, Mc­Con­nell’s spokes­man, said Thursday in an email that the new AUMF “is not the one the [p]res­id­ent asked for” and “not one that would tie the [p]res­id­ent’s hands.”

Stew­art ad­ded that the pro­cess Mc­Con­nell used to set up the AUMF, known as “Rule XIV,” merely sets up the au­thor­iz­a­tion for a fu­ture vote, but does not put it on the cal­en­dar—mean­ing a vote could come at any time, or not at all. The res­ol­u­tion already has four Re­pub­lic­an co­spon­sors: Senators. Lind­sey Gra­ham, Daniel Coats, Joni Ernst, and Or­rin Hatch.

That came as news to many mem­bers Thursday. Sev­er­al sen­at­ors said they were un­aware that Mc­Con­nell had moved to fast-track an au­thor­iz­a­tion and some Re­pub­lic­ans im­me­di­ately poin­ted out is­sues with the pro­pos­al. Sen. Jeff Flake, who in­tro­duced a more lim­ited AUMF with Vir­gin­ia Demo­crat Tim Kaine last June, said: “We need to pass one—we don’t need to just make a polit­ic­al state­ment.”

“I just know that it’ll be dif­fi­cult to get Demo­crat­ic sup­port on this,” he ad­ded.

Sen­ate For­eign Re­la­tions Chair­man Bob Cork­er said that there is still a “wide di­versity” of opin­ions on the is­sue. Some Demo­crats were crit­ic­al of even the pres­id­ent’s own draft AUMF, warn­ing that they’d need ad­di­tion­al re­stric­tions from the ad­min­is­tra­tion on troop levels and geo­graph­ic bound­ar­ies be­fore they could sup­port any au­thor­iz­a­tion. Re­pub­lic­ans, mean­while, wor­ried deeply about re­strict­ing the pres­id­ent as this ad­min­is­tra­tion, and the next one, work to com­bat IS­IS.

Cork­er’s com­mit­tee—and the Sen­ate at large—was so deeply di­vided over the pres­id­ent’s AUMF pro­pos­al in Feb­ru­ary that the pan­el ul­ti­mately dropped the is­sue, with Cork­er ar­guing with the ad­min­is­tra­tion that no new au­thor­iz­a­tion was needed. “I don’t think it changes any­thing,” he said, of the new res­ol­u­tion.

“I’m in the same place that I’ve been—and that is I be­lieve the ad­min­is­tra­tion has the au­thor­ity to do what they’re do­ing,” he ad­ded. “They be­lieve they have the au­thor­ity to do what they’re do­ing. If a con­sensus de­vel­ops and I be­lieve that something con­struct­ive re­l­at­ive to us deal­ing with IS­IS might come out of it then cer­tainly I’d be glad to con­sider it.”

Still, sev­er­al long-time ad­voc­ates for passing a new meas­ure au­thor­iz­ing the ad­min­is­tra­tion’s war against IS­IS were pleased to see an AUMF mov­ing, however slightly, for­ward.

“This is the right thing,” said Gra­ham, a co­spon­sor on the new AUMF res­ol­u­tion. “This is the right in­fra­struc­ture to have.”

“If our Demo­crat­ic friends don’t want to give this pres­id­ent and oth­er pres­id­ents the abil­ity to go after IS­IS without lim­it­a­tion to geo­graphy, time and means—be on the re­cord,” he ad­ded.

Kaine, a Demo­crat who has ag­gress­ively ad­voc­ated for an AUMF, was thrilled Thursday that the Sen­ate could soon take up de­bate, though he ad­ded that he hasn’t yet seen the de­tails. “After 18 months, I feel like the in­sti­tu­tion might be fi­nally wak­ing up that this is a threat,” Kaine said. “So we’ll see what the plan is on it, but the no­tion that we may be fi­nally tak­ing our job ser­i­ously on it is something I’m hope­ful about.”

Kaine said that al­though he and the vast ma­jor­ity of Con­gress sup­port com­batting IS­IS, he dis­agrees with the ad­min­is­tra­tion that the pres­id­ent is with­in his au­thor­ity to do so. “I be­lieve the war is il­leg­al,” Kaine said Thursday. “I don’t think there’s a leg­al jus­ti­fic­a­tion for it. And I think the greatest danger we end up do­ing is al­low­ing the pres­id­ent to wage a war without Con­gress weigh­ing in.”

Kaine ad­ded that the pres­id­ent ac­ted ini­tially “to pro­tect Amer­ic­an lives” and cred­ited the White House for send­ing over anAUMF last year. “We haven’t done any­thing. So just the no­tion that maybe fi­nally there’s some in­terest in this, I find grat­i­fy­ing. But we’ll have to work through the de­tails,” he said.

Sev­er­al Demo­crats said they were un­aware of or hadn’t read the new AUMF lan­guage, but some greeted the op­por­tun­ity to open de­bate on the is­sue.

Sen. Robert Men­en­dez, who helped to get a Demo­crat­ic draftAUMF through the For­eign Re­la­tions Com­mit­tee as chair­man in Decem­ber 2014, said that the new au­thor­iz­a­tion was news to him, but that he sup­por­ted bring­ing up the is­sue.

“I’m for the Con­gress vot­ing on an AUMF; of course it de­pends what the AUMF looks like,” Men­en­dez said Thursday. “I don’t want a blank check,” he said.

Cornyn, who in Decem­ber said that Re­pub­lic­ans would not present an AUMF of their own un­til the pres­id­ent out­lined a strategy, said that he non­ethe­less wel­comed de­bate on the is­sue.

“I don’t think we should be afraid of that de­bate, but we need a co­her­ent strategy from the pres­id­ent which we still don’t have and we also don’t need to tie the hands of the next pres­id­ent by re­strict­ing what the pres­id­ent can do,” Cornyn said.

“What I find kind of iron­ic about this is the pres­id­ent ap­par­ently thinks he has all the au­thor­ity he needs to do what he’s do­ing,” he ad­ded. “But I’m not afraid of the de­bate, I think it’s an im­port­ant de­bate to have, and cer­tainly the people we send in harm’s way need to know that the coun­try is be­hind them. So, thanks for telling me.”

Elites Spill BIG Intel In DAVOS: America’s Obsolete! Global Governance And NWO To Rule (VIDEO)

davos

The New World Order’s World Economic Forum hosted their annual Davos-Klosters meeting, in Switzerland where 2,500 politicians, celebrities, and business leaders from all over the world attended this “Bilderberg style” meeting. Their attendees include 53 people who own as much wealth as the poorest half of the world and over 1,000 of the world biggest multinational corporations all of whom have their eye set on The New World Order.

One of the biggest discussions held at this meeting is the fact that citizens are no longer trusting their governments:

“If this growing disconnect between governments and citizens is not fixed rapidly, there can be no legitimate, accountable and trusted global cooperation, problem solving or governance.” WEF Everybody’s Business Report

Their proposed solution includes getting rid of the voice from the average person, who in their words, are unfit to make decisions that need to be left to the globalists.

In a document called Global Redesign Initiative (GRI) put out in by the World Economic Forum they proposed a transition away from international government decision making body into a system of multinational-stakeholders governance. Simply put they are, by stealth, replacing our model of voting in governments who negotiate treaties which are then ratified by our elected representative, to a model where a self-selected group of ‘stake-holders’ make decisions on our behalf. This is a terrifying thought to anyone who values freedom.

Other topics of discussion at this meeting include: Middle East conflicts, the fact that Donald Trump is the front-runner for the Republican presidential candidate (which means the globalists don’t like him), technological innovation, Agenda 21, and other twisted details.

In the video below I cover all the above and more! You won’t believe some of the things at play in Davos, Switzerland…

To be frank, the wealth gap is quickly widening and the middle class is starting to fade into the distance. If we continue to allow these creeps to rule over us, then we can project that we will land head first into a Socialism/Communism style rule with once percent ruling over the rest.

Getting The Idea Of Government And Political Authority Out Of Your Mind (VIDEO)

Political authority (of State or Government) is the supposed legitimacy of a group or individual to rule. But is there any justifiable basis for it?

Political authority (of State or Government) is the supposed legitimacy of a group or individual to rule. But is there any justifiable basis for it?

Political authority, or the authority of State, or the authority of Government, is something the average person virtually never questions. Almost everyone goes through their entire life believing that the Government – although it’s almost always composed of provable criminals, cheats and liars – still has a solid basis for its political authority. Many people, whether left, right or anywhere in between on the political spectrum, are Statists: they think that Government has an inherent right to rule, using coercion if necessary. Yet, even a cursory examination shows that if a normal person acted like Government, they would characterized as cunning, secretive and manipulative, and either be diagnosed as insane, or locked up as a danger to society, or both. So why do people allow and consent to such a situation?

David Hume on Government and Political Authority

The 18th century British philosopher David Hume attested to this situation when he wrote that:

“Nothing is more surprising than the easiness with which the many are governed by the few.” 

Hume was clearly one of those rare few who took the time to closely examine the origins and political authority of Government. Interestingly, he was propagating many of these ideas during the mid-1700s, a few decades before the time of the American and French Revolutions.

political-authority-many-governed-by-few-david-hume-quote

Hume realized that most Government is formed and is held together by war. History teaches us this over and over again, including politicians’ inventions of fictitious enemies to justify a State’s existence:

“Most governments are not formed by contract but rather through conquest and war.”

“The heights of popularity and patriotism are still the beaten road to power and tyranny; flattery to treachery; standing armies to arbitrary government; and the glory of God to the temporal interest of the clergy.”

“It is probable, that the first ascendant of one man over multitudes begun during a state of war; where the superiority of courage and of genius discovers itself most visibly, where unanimity and concert are most requisite, and where the pernicious effects of disorder are most sensibly felt. The long continuance of that state, an incident common among savage tribes, enured the people to submission; and if the chieftain possessed as much equity as prudence and valour, he became, even during peace, the arbiter of all differences, and could gradually, by a mixture of force and consent, establish his authority….

political-authority-david-hume-quote-the-heights-of-popularity-and-patriotism-are-still-240x300Hume warned that authority should never become too uncontrollable over liberty:

In all governments, there is a perpetual intestine struggle, open or secret, between Authority and Liberty; and neither of them can ever absolutely prevail in the contest. A great sacrifice of liberty must necessarily be made in every government; yet even the authority, which confines liberty, can never, and perhaps ought never, in any constitution, to become quite entire and uncontrollable.”

Lastly, Hume explicitly stated that a State’s supposed political authority could not hold water when investigated closely:

“No maxim is more comfortable … than to submit quietly to the government, which we find establish’d in the country where we happen to live, without enquiring too curiously into its origin and first establishment. Few governments will bear being examin’d so rigorously.”

political-authority-governments-only-founded-on-opinions-david-hume-quote

Is political authority merely based on opinion?

“It is on opinion only that government is founded; and this maxim extends to the most despotic and most military governments, as well as to the most free and most popular.”

As we shall see, this last quote rings true, and is especially interesting given that it flatly contradicts the widely held notion put forth by Hume’s fellow British philosopher John Locke, who proposed that their was some kind of social contract from which the State justly derived its powers.

Can Political Authority be Justified by Social Contract?

Professor Michael Huemer has done some of the best work on the subject of political authority. He has authored such books as The Problem with Political Authority: An Examination of the Right to Coerce and the Duty to Obey. Huemer shows that it is very difficult to justify political authority, especially in the form we have now in most Western countries: a “democratic” Government which claims a monopoly on the use of force or violence.

Most people begin to defend a State’s right to exist by claiming there is some kind of social contract, a theory of Locke. However Locke’s theory has been shown to be false. No such contract exists. There is no piece of paper which enshrines it, nor is there any piece of paper you sign when you come of age. Even if a written contract did exist, it would require constant consent from newer generations to sustain it.

Is There Implicit Consent which Justifies Government?

When the social contract argument falls down, people then tend to argue that rather than explicit consent, there is some of kind of implicit consent we give to the State. Huemer identifies 4 types:

1. Passive consent (refraining from opposing something);

2. Acceptance of benefits;

3. Consent through presence (consent given by merely remaining in a location); and

4. Consent through participation (consent given by voluntarily participating in something).

However, to truly give consent, you must be in a non-coercive environment. Consent can only really be given when you are also free to not give the consent, if you so choose. Is this the case with Government? The answer, of course, is a resounding “NO”! You don’t have any choice.

With valid consent, both parties would have ability to “opt-out”, and both would also have obligations to each other, which, if unfulfilled, would grant the other one adequate grounds for terminating the agreement. You can’t just opt-out; the Government will fine, charge and ultimately imprison you if you don’t obey its decrees. The only way is move country (where you face another Government doing much the same thing), so there’s no escape unless you move to the remote wilderness somewhere. Likewise, there is no effective way you can simply terminate the agreement or contract, without suffering the same negative consequences of being charged and imprisoned.

You have no recourse or remedy; the relationship is one of force and coercion; thus, there is no true consent, whether explicit or implicit.

Can Consent of a Majority Justify Political Authority?

The next argument given by many people is that the State is justified because it is given consent by a majority of people in that society. This may or may not be true, given that the pro-authority bias carried by many people often lies beneath the surface as a unconscious belief (which was programmed into them at a young age). However, even if it is true, it seems to affirm a problematic conclusion: that the opinions and desires of a large group of people or a majority can be forced onto a smaller group or minority. This is a kind of “majority rules”, unlimited, mob-rule democracy which really is better named a tyranny of the masses.

This is exactly why the US was set up a Republic not a Democracy. The United States is a Constitutional Republic where individuals and minorities are recognized to hold certain inherent or unalienable rights, which can never be abrogated, regardless of what the majority wants or who holds power. Without this, it is all too easy for a prejudiced majority (which can be whipped up into emotional frenzies by cunning leaders and demagogues) to impose its will on those too powerless to defend themselves. Aristotle once said that “Unlimited democracy is, just like oligarchy, a tyranny spread over a large number of people.”

The Nazis tried to claim they were “just following orders” at Nuremburg. The world roundly rejected that argument.

The Nazis tried to claim they were “just following orders” at Nuremburg. The world roundly rejected that argument.

The Consequentialist Argument for Political Authority

The final argument of those believing in solid justification for Government is usually consequentialist, i.e. it appeals to the benefits, good consequences and utility of the State. “Look how many good things the Government does”, they say, “so its political authority is valid, because it gives us so many benefits”. However, the question must be asked: are the benefits worth the price we pay, in terms of a loss of liberty and the duty to obey? History clearly shows us that most of the injustice and destruction in the world was committed by people obeying authority, not opposing it.

Also, if Government gets political authority due to the benefits it provides, why can’t other groups get it too (e.g. vigilantes or private defense companies)? Most people would be unwilling to grant vigilantes or anyone else this power …

Ultimately, why does Government deserve some kind of special moral status – that allows it charge, tax, fine, imprison and kill – when no other individual or organization in society is allowed to? Just because the State provides us with some benefits, why does it get the right to do these things? It’s a very difficult question to answer …

Bad Government, Theocracies, Impostor Royals and Democide

The State is not the root of all evil; however, the fact remains that Government killing its own citizens (democide) was the leading cause of non-natural death in the 20th century. So much atrocity has been committed by out-of-control Government around the world. Many countries still have not evolved to the point where they have decided to separate Church and State; indeed, it took Europe many centuries of dark oppression under the Catholic Church to realize it may not be a good idea to entrust the clergy with political power. Interestingly, the current leader of Syria, the poor country being besieged by the US-UK-Israeli axis of the New World Order, is Bashar Al-Assad, who is committed to the principle of separation of Church and State. This is one more reason why the NWO wants him out.

Many nations in the Middle East have Governments of theocracy – “rule by God” – although of course God seems to have exclusive spokesmen who are usually from rich bloodline families. Yemen, Oman, Iran, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia are all theocracies. Saudi Arabia, Beheaders Incorporated, is ruled by the incredibly corrupt House of Saud (which has Zionist roots), another bunch of impostor royals just like the British royal family and the other European ones. To declare yourself “royal” merely means you proclaim you have some kind of “right to rule”. What a Jedi mind-trick! These royal families are the most corrupt criminals in the entire world. Check out David Icke’s work in exposing the satanic British royal family for more information on this. The craziness still continues to this day, with Thai citizens getting imprisoned for the grand crime of – wait for it – insulting the King’s dog. Wake up humanity!

If Government’s Political Authority Cannot Be Justified … Why Do You Still Believe in the Concept of the State?

The fake Saudi royals who love to behead dissenters. I think I may have solved the mystery of where my missing red & white picnic sheets went …

The fake Saudi royals who love to behead dissenters. I think I may have solved the mystery of where my missing red & white picnic sheets went …

Even those seeking true freedom understand that past conditioning and programming can be very hard to overcome. It would be great if we could just wave a magic wand and be free of old, crusty and limiting ideas that were instilled or indoctrinated into us at an earlier age, or which we mistakenly took on, but it doesn’t work like that. We have to put in the hard work to uncover and analyze them, then decide what to keep and discard.

If you’re reading this, hopefully you can see that the State exists in out minds, first and foremost. The only way we can achieve a free outer world is to first rid our minds of limiting inner ideas. If we could open ourselves up to the idea that maybe – just maybe – the human race could live in freedom and peace, could govern itself, could resolve its own disputes and adequately defend itself, we wouldn’t need the State. Anarchy doesn’t have to mean chaos. A state of anarchy could still possess order and peaceful cooperation. Many have proposed models where the Government’s role in defense and dispute resolution can be decentralized and provided by various 3rd party companies, who are then subject to the laws of economics and the market (e.g. by caring about their reputation, by trying to provide the best service, etc.).

Maybe humanity is not ready for the Stateless society. Maybe we would need to first transition to something like a minarchy (a strictly limited and decentralized Government). However, the first step in all of this is for everyone to examine their unconscious belief and pro-authority bias, and realize that Government’s political authority cannot be justified. Government doesn’t have to exist for humanity to thrive.

SC Bill To Register, Determine Competency Of Journalists

free speech

By: Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post |

South Carolina has long been known for the ridiculous and off-world bills its State House regularly submits to a vote. Indeed, the residents of the state are routinely subjected to a demonstration of the utter uselessness of the majority of its “representatives” as well as their lack of understanding and concern for civil liberties, Constitutional rights, and the general welfare of the State.

Enter another freedom-shredding bill submitted by the Constitutional non-scholar Mike Pitts, a Republican State House member from Laurens, S.C.

Pitts’ bill would establish a “responsible journalism registry” to be operated by the South Carolina Secretary of State.

The summary of the bill states that it would “establish requirements for persons before working as a journalist for a media outlet and for media outlets before hiring a journalist” as well as establish penalties, fines, and jail sentences for violations. And, of course, “for other purposes.”

H. 4702 also states,

A person seeking to register shall provide all information required by the office including, but not limited to, a criminal record background check, an affidavit from the media outlet attesting to the applicant’s journalistic competence, and an application fee in an amount determined by the office.
(C)    A registration is valid for two years and must be renewed within thirty days of expiration.
(D)(1)  The Secretary of State’s Office may deny, revoke, or refuse to issue or renew a registration if the office finds that the person:
(a)    has filed an application for registration that contains a statement that is false or misleading with respect to a material fact;
(b)    has failed to pay the proper application fee or any other fee or penalty imposed pursuant to this chapter; or
(c)    has failed to comply with any provision of this chapter.
(2)    The Secretary of State’s Office shall deny, revoke, or refuse to issue or renew a registration if a media outlet has determined pursuant to Section 40-85-40 that the person is not competent to be a journalist.
(E)    Upon receipt of the required information and documents, the office within thirty days shall provide a registration to the person for submission to a media outlet or a letter notifying the person of the basis for denying, revoking, or refusing to issue or renew a registration.

It then describes how a journalist will be determined competent (essentially at the whim of the Secretary of State) by stating,

Before working as a journalist for a media outlet in this State, a person shall provide a criminal record background check to the media outlet to determine journalistic competence and register with the South Carolina Responsible Journalism Registry. After registering, the person shall provide a copy of the registration to the media outlet. A person may not work as a journalist until the person provides a copy of a registration to the media outlet.
Section 40-85-40.    (A)    A person is not competent to be a journalist if:
(1)    within the three years before submitting an application for registration, the person has been determined by a court of law to have committed:
(a)    libel, slander, or invasion of privacy; or
(b)    a felony if the underlying offense was committed to collect, write, or distribute news or other current information for a media outlet; or
(2)    as a journalist, the person has demonstrated a reckless disregard of the basic codes and canons of professional journalism associations, including a disregard of truth, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability, as applicable to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public.
(B)    Upon making a determination that a person is competent to be a journalist, the media outlet shall provide the person an affidavit attesting to the person’s journalistic competence for submission to the registry.

Bill Rogers, Executive Director of the S.C. Press Association says that the bill “is ridiculous and totally unconstitutional” and that the government cannot require journalists to register as the First Amendment ensures freedom of the press.

One can only imagine what fit of mental illness provoked Pitts to submit such a bill. After all, Pitts has professed his support of the Second Amendment repeatedly in the past so many might be scratching their heads as to why he is so antagonistic to the First. At this point, we are only left to guess as to why Pitts chose to launch his assault on the freedom of speech, expression, and the press.

Was it because he is bitter over all the negative publicity he has received in recent months and the threat those critical articles may have on his career of parasitism? Did Pitts lose his place while reading the U.S. Constitution and skim over the Bill of Rights? Did Pitts recently travel to Saudi Arabia and realize the Saudis have a better system? Is he suffering from an extended bout of untreated syphilis? Seriously, any of these explanations are as legitimate as the bill itself.

Regardless, Pitts’ bill should promptly be shot down. In fact, H.4702 should only be preceded in death by Pitts’ political career.

Clearly, no one in their right mind would ever support such a piece of legislation (but I didn’t say it wouldn’t pass) and no one in Pitts’ state of mind should ever be allowed to submit it.

New World Order vs. America

Flag
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” – David Rockefeller Baden-Baden, Germany 1991

No longer can the critics of the NWO be called kooks, believing in a weird conspiracy. That kind of dismissal will not fly. The press abounds with admissions from well known politicians, captains of finance, movers and shakers of all kinds. The need for silence about reality does not exist. The plan succeeded. The New World Order rules.

Those are the facts, even if you want to deny them. Debate is over, proof of design is evident in official policy. The notion of decree from the top, filtering down to the bottom is indisputable. Illusions are not needed any longer because the means of control for society have been achieved. The Mattoids have known and developed this scheme for scores of decades. Only the captive, bound in velvet chains would deny their place in prison.

What matters is the grandee “Global View”. The forces against humanity claim to be their benefactor. Nevertheless, the record of recent history demonstrates that the war for earthly dominion is the struggle between “collectivism” in all its forms and the preeminence of the natural rights within all individuals. If you fail to appreciate that Communism, Socialism, Fascism are mere forms of the same dictatorship, you will never understand the nature of the continuous struggle. There is no right or left difference in these offshoots of the same despotism. Their claim that the STATE is supreme, can only lead to tyranny. Their goal absolutism! And their method of rule is always based upon coercion, command and control.

Frederick Bastiat in The Law – mastered the quandary of the conflict back in 1850. Governments use a perverted version of legality to base their servitude systems of ordinance, direction and management. But those who believe that government officials are the creators of policy are vastly deceived. The New World Order is a culture of unanimity – designed by the intelligentsia (the euphemism for illuminati), administered by minions of toady servants – that ultimately benefits elites – who hold hostage the reins of finance and the power over political policy.

No need for keeping secret this nefarious scheme, for it is the very way that the world operates. When you hear of Council on Foreign RelationsTrilateral Commission and the Bilderbergs you need not experience ridicule for admitting you have heard about them! Their own members are vocal about their involvement and often take credit for their contributions to the grand design of global interdependence. So why would anyone be embarrassed by sneers and jeers for accepting factual reality, that is openly acknowledged by the despot class?

Denial is unacceptable, these groups are in charge of the world economy and are the forces behind virtually every significant government. Those countries who resist the dictates of the IMF and World Bank are reduced to poverty. Those regimes that oppose the “world community” are bombed. And citizens of nations that contest this oppressive rule are called unpatriotic, deemed to be suspect criminals, and now – defined as lurking terrorists. The New World Order has a central, coordinated and consistent goal, the destruction of individual sovereignty and the integration of all countries into a Global Gulag.

America of the 1776 Revolution was a unique attempt at a federation of independent states. With the ratification of the U.S. Constitution the collapse of the dream began and the descent into the egregious pitfalls of empire began. At the conclusion of the convention in Philadelphia, Ben Franklin was asked what form of government the congress had given the country. “A Republic,” said Franklin, “if you can keep it.”

The addition of the Bill of Rights was the only safeguard that offered hope for inhibiting the historic drive to enslave citizens, by their own governments, under the cloak of law and order. The original Ten Amendments sought to form a “federalism” balance between a central government with three separate branches, and among independent and sovereign states, based upon their consent and diverse roles.

Today our country is a hollow shell of the Founding Father’s vision. What exists today is a tyranny unimaginable when our once proud nation was created. The New World Order is the antithesis of a republic. Divinely endowed natural rights for all citizens are now defined as arbitrary and subordinate to a contrived specter of an imaginary world community – governed by the few – so the many can serve, those who set the rules. The system, is the NWO. We, the people, are viewed as puppets to be managed or marginalized, at the whims of a master class. Their rules apply for us, but they are exempt from them and are accountable only to their own cabal.

The term, ‘TC’ totalitarian collectivism depicts the condition and the regimes that sets the world agenda, enforces its implimentation and doles out subsistence; in order to maintain incessant bondage. Is this the America you knew or want for your children? Hardly a Republic of limited government! The NWO intent has always been to destroy the real America and to claim that “beacon of light” on a hill as a possession for only their own.

Only the fool would willingly choose to become one of the sheeple. But it seems that the herd is being bred to worship this beast and to deny and forego their own heritage. Why would you support George W. Bush when he continues the undone work of his father. When George I declared victory for the NWO, he answered Franklin – the REPUBLIC is officially dead. Not much need to debate conspiracy – it is all approved by the very bodies that tell you no conspiracy exists! Yes, my fellow Americans there is a ‘war on terror’ and it is being waged against you. But it is the creation of those who devise the threat, invent the culprit and execute the toxic medicine – all with the ultimate goal of eliminating the last remnants of the Bill of Rights. When will you allow your common sense and reason to see the real enemy? The true American patriot will wage war against the New World Order. What will your answer be to old Ben Franklin?

“The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is the American Branch of a society which originated in England … (and) … believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.”– Professor of History Carroll Quigley, Georgetown University, in his book “Tragedy and Hope”.

You’re Being Watched!

Computer Eye

You’re Being Watched!

It wasn’t that long ago when I marveled that British citizens permitted the installation of closed circuit TV cameras in London. I thought to myself; “Americans would never except public spy cameras”. We value our privacy too much. So, time marched on and look at what we have now. Cameras on street corners, in stores, on cop cars, on cops and looking down on us from space!

Ah, but camera spying is but a minor intrusion into our personal lives. People love their wireless telecommunication devices. With the global spread of the internet, the universal adoption of Facebook and similar products, mankind now stands naked and helpless before those who wish to do us great harm. Never before has there been such a potential for unspeakable tyrannies!

The interconnection of diverse databases allows nearly god-like powers to be applied to individuals and organizations. Get a Gmail account and they want your picture. Sign-up for a social media account and, of course, they want your picture. Put a group photo on Facebook and, as a courtesy, the program uses facial recognition to identify everyone and annotate the picture with their names. Excuse me, but that should scare everyone! A database of all faces is under construction and people simply give them what they want. Really? Yet nobody seems to care!

That remarkable GPS receiver in your phone is very handy. It can find you but it can also track where you are. How safe do you feel now? Quite safe if you need an ambulance, but what if a government agency or a bad guy that hacked the system wants to find you?

A recent article in the Washington Post highlights the sophistication of automatic cross-database correlations of diverse, but relevant information. The Fresno, California police department has a new tool to instantly asses a suspect’s risk potential.

“The program scoured billions of data points, including arrest reports, property records, commercial databases, deep Web searches and the man’s social- media postings.” “Fresno has given local law enforcement officers unprecedented power to peer into the lives of citizens.”—The Washington Post, “The new way police are surveilling you: Calculating your threat ‘score’”, January 10, 2016.

Few people realize that computers now have abilities that go far beyond searching for “keywords”. Artificial intelligence software can actually read text and emails to “understand” what has been said! Who said it, what did he say and who did he say it to? Are his thoughts politically incorrect? Does he know about something that he shouldn’t?

Author George Orwell (1984) could not have foreseen the advent of computers and the astonishing power that they have over mankind. TV cameras everywhere but who looks at all of the monitor screens? Computers do! They interpret images, identify people, read their mail and do the bidding for those who want to know everything about you. If the man in charge wants to know if you’re a Christian, a Republican, a gun owner, a patriotic person, you dislike the president or you told someone that you cheated on your taxes—the answers are only a keystroke away!

I wish this was science fiction but its all science fact. Techno-tyranny against the individual is expanding at a dizzying rate. People supply information and images without concern for the abuses that will surely increase. Shutting down the Internet has consequences that are as drastic as a nation-wide failure of the electric grid. Modern civilization is utterly dependent on our digital systems. We cannot live without them—can’t get money, can’t get gas, can’t manage the distribution of food and supplies or even worse; can’t know what people are thinking about!

Like it or not, we now live in a police state. This truth is not a conspiracy theory, it is The Truth! Can things get worse? Can a woman be just a little bit pregnant? As this baby grows our personal freedoms are dissolving by the day. Living in denial changes nothing—the baby just keeps getting bigger. As global insanities progress and the world economies become hopelessly wrapped around the axle, a total collapse is a certainty. The cry will go out; “who can save us?”

A New World Order to the rescue! First things first. Everyone will be microchipped. You may not buy, sell, eat or travel without it. Countries and their borders will be eliminated. Humans will become one big happy global family! To be exceptional, talented, entrepreneurial or obsessed with telling the truth will get you noticed. You’ll be put on a list! Believing in God will be a criminal act.

We are but one step away from this reality. It’s not just that God is watching us and listening to all that we say and do. So is our government! You don’t have to believe in God, but you’d better believe in what men, armed with advanced technology and great power can do to you. Wake up and see the future while you can still change it!

Disarmed Americans Ensure Full-blown Submission (VIDEO)

The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the “high powers”  delegated directly to the citizen, and ‘is excepted out of  the general powers of government.’ A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power. Texas Court Decision – Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)

Ladies and Gentlemen; the Imperial Storm Troopers are ready to neutralize the threat from the American people against the Colonial Empire. Obama has declared war to the cheers of the progressive imbeciles, who are the most avid abettor of the Totalitarian Collectivist society. You may not get a visit from ATF, DHS or FBI any day soon, but you can be sure your society is being SWAT by the government domestic terrorists carrying out the wishes of a tyrannical regime. The political class and the underlings that implement their illegitimate dictates want to disarm the public out of fear the peasants may storm the castle. Guns and bullets are only instruments of protection. The crucial war on populist independence is waged against the minds, hearts and souls of thinking and fearless Americans.

The long and persistent struggle to demonize self-governing citizens in their local communities, has been a prime objective of a despotic culture that reveres central authority, while condemning any resistance to authoritarian rule. Disarming is not restricted to firearms. Defusing disobedience is the essential goal. Submission and compliance is lionized as the critical attribute for denizens, who now reside in a foreign land, totally different from that of their forebears.

Record gun sales were hit before Obama announces gun control executive action. Would anyone think they will drop after the latest draconian infringement against the public’s right to bear arms?

All time record number of background checks processed as the “FBI processed a record number of firearms-related background checks last year, indicating that more guns were sold in 2015 than in any previous year in American history.”

CNN reports that gun manufacturers like “Sturm Ruger’s stock soared more than 75% last year while Smith & Wesson’s stock was up more than 132%.”

Is it not refreshing to see and know that the rational and well balanced segment of real America rejects the dictatorial pronouncements of a pussy emperor?

This is the time to strike a bargain with the devil. When the POTUS abandons Secret Service protection and bans all firearms along with dismissing any personal security details, the grassroots “bitter clingers” will think about beating our swords into plowshares.

Just how dim-witted has the “politically correct” disconnect from reality become? Obviously, the culture borders on societal insanity. There is no more of an axiom natural law than the right of an individual to protect the safety of their person.

The totalitarians from the loony left are the most intolerant and domineering proponents of a slave society. These brainwashed dullards are the quintessential racists. Liberty to their cult system is so dangerous that only the brute force from an all supreme centralized dominance can keep autonomous sovereignty under their boot.

How did this mental sickness come into existence? Now for those brave patriots, who dare to follow the truth, even if the controlled mass media culture calls you chauvinistic names; listen to the audacious Brother Nathanael Kapner in the video, Jews Lead Gun Control Charge.

If a Caucasian Christian (other than a converted former Jew) made this argument, they would immediately be dumped upon as a “gun rights extremist who also advocates a theocratic society based on Old Testament civil and religious laws, and a pivotal figure in the militia movement.” Read for yourself what the Southern Poverty Law Center calls Larry Pratt.

Revealing, Who Controls the Southern Poverty Law Center lists the twenty-two (22) Southern Poverty Law Center senior program staff members, fifteen (15) are Jews. Folks, it is not anti-Semitic to document factual reality. The perversion in our culture that tears down traditional values and seeks to isolate and marginalize exponents of American individualism is based upon the Totalitarian Collectivism that is taught in the Talmud.

You say this is too harsh of a condemnation? Wake up buddy. Liberate yourself from the socialization taught in government schools, from the culture shock in mass media newspeak and from the sick curriculum of academia anarchism designed to strip the goy of their heritage.

The right to bear arms is righteous if atrocities and despicable acts are committed by the Irgun, the Stern Gang or Lehi, but if ordinary citizens want to defend their family and home, they risk being charged as domestic terrorists. This disconnect is a direct result from the methodical attack on the time-honored American social order from committed secular subverters. And yes, the most dangerous zealots claim that they are Jews, even if the cold blood of the Khazars runs in their veins.

Second Amendment defenders must understand that the state of war that is being fought against them must admit that the ideology of collectivism is embedded in the MTV psyops brain drain indoctrination. This one example illustrates the practice of dedicated decades of creating a cultural wasteland that replaces any connection to the real world.

By destroying the minds of the youth, the debauched and debased secular humanism twists and weaves the new age progressivism into the mainstream cesspool. Pray tell, guns can only be put into the hands of law enforcement, since middle class values and church worship are so outdated and dangerous.

This obscene mentality is where the actual battlefield of disarmament is taking place. The reason is simple. Individuals have no self worth in this profaned system of submission.

Enter the political class and their bureaucratic trolls serving time to draw their retirement benefits. The sport of adhering to the game plan of achieving power requires bonding with the cultural elite’s. When tenured associate professor James Tracy is fired over the controversy from his claims that Sandy Hook was a hoax, the practice of challenging the orthodox gun fear narrative is vividly demonstrated.

What gun law did he violate? Answer, none; but the taboo of refuting the programmed scare society is the ultimate violation. Gun owners must fall into the extreme distrust category, not because they want the means for self-defense, but because they refuse to accept that the government is the only valid protector of the population.

So it is understandable when Congress Could Quickly End Obama’s Gun Grab, but refuses to act.

“Typical of Republican statements was a press release sent out by Rep. Tom Price. Price said:

The president is acting with a complete disregard for the Constitutional limits of his own authority. This is not a responsible or an effective means at protecting the safety and security of the American people. The Obama Administration should focus on the job of the Executive Branch which is to enforce the laws of the land, not rewrite them.

Just as the Republican press releases criticizing the new directives won’t do anything to prevent their enforcement. Republicans do possess every power necessary to block Obama’s gun grab except one: political courage.”

Wonder why this is the case? The popular culture keeps pushing the idea that any gun owner must be crazy by definition. This is analogist of the notion: SHOULD CLIMATE CHANGE DENIERS BE PROSECUTED? When a court rules, Ban on Gun Ownership for Any Past Mental Illness Held Unconstitutional, NRA members might be able to rest peacefully. However, Obama wants to carry out the wishes of the radical left adding to his recent executive orders that, Doctors can report some mentally ill patients to FBI under new gun control rule.

The rule of law has no place in today’s Amerika. When Mother Jones lists 7 Gun Groups That Make the NRA Look Reasonable, it is not because they want to join up with protestors at the standoff in Oregon. Hell no, the bleeding heart left psychopaths could care less about the Federal Department of Injustice continuous persecuting of Dwight Hammond.

The storyline that must be adopted to be invited into polite company of the cultural elite must conform to false flag terrorist training exercises. The Second Amendment is about more than guns. Defense of self is intrinsic to every person. And honest evaluation must conclude that government demonstrates little interest in truly protecting human life.

obama gun control abortionIf planned parenthood can applaud the murder of over 58 million unborn human beings, and MSNBC and CNN ignores the carnage of teen age killings in Chicago using mostly illegally obtained weapons; why target law abiding citizens to strip them of their inalienable right of self-defense?

Yes, gentlewomen and sirs; the driving force behind gun confiscation comes from the globalist usurpers who want to enslave humanity under the aegis of Rothschild illuminati control. Allowing a satanic tribe of megalomaniacs to subvert our culture and dictate personal disarmament to a gang of timid and corrupted political servants is the definitive definition of absurdity.

Know the enemy, resist their oppression and demand the free exercise of your God given rights. Remember the entire truth is the best defense against evil tyrants. Lock and load has its place, but it is best to win this war in the marketplace of ideas. The real America was not built upon a usury system of finance and fear. Our nation cries out for defiance against Totalitarian Collectivism.

Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.  – Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) An Autobiography, pg. 446

Government Software Calculates Your ‘Threat Score’ And Categorizes Citizens As Red, Yellow Or Green

Traffic Lights

Do you know what your “threat score” is?  Today, more than 90 percent of all local police departments and nearly all government agencies employ some sort of technological surveillance.  One of the most common applications is called “Beware”, and it scans billions of “arrest reports, property records, commercial databases, deep Web searches” and social media postings to give authorities an idea of who they are dealing with.  So the next time that police pull up in front of your home, it is likely that what you have posted on Facebook will be searched.  If you have said things that could be construed as “anti-government” or “anti-police”, there is a very good chance that you will have a very high “threat score” and you will be on “the red list”.

I understand that this sounds like something that comes directly out of a science fiction movie, but I assure you that it is very real.  In fact, the Washington Post reported on this just the other day…

While officers raced to a recent 911 call about a man threatening his ex-girlfriend, a police operator in headquarters consulted software that scored the suspect’s potential for violence the way a bank might run a credit report.

The program scoured billions of data points, including arrest reports, property records, commercial databases, deep Web searches and the man’s social media postings. It calculated his threat level as the highest of three color-coded scores: a bright red warning.

“Beware” was created by a corporation known as “Intrado”, and police departments around the nation began using it back in 2012.  When police officers using this software roll up to your home, they will instantly know which residents are on the “green list”, which are on the “yellow list”, and which are on the “red list”.  Here is more from the Washington Post

As officers respond to calls, Beware automatically runs the address. The searches return the names of residents and scans them against a range of publicly available data to generate a color-coded threat level for each person or address: green, yellow or red.

Exactly how Beware calculates threat scores is something that its maker, Intrado, considers a trade secret, so it is unclear how much weight is given to a misdemeanor, felony or threatening comment on Facebook. However, the program flags issues and provides a report to the user.

In promotional materials, Intrado writes that Beware could reveal that the resident of a particular address was a war veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, had criminal convictions for assault and had posted worrisome messages about his battle experiences on social media.

Everything that you have ever done on the Internet could potentially be used to calculate your “threat score”.  So if you made some ill-advised comments on Facebook or in an Internet forum five years ago, there is still probably a record of that somewhere, and “Beware” will probably find it.

The next time you get pulled over or a police officer comes to your home, things that you may have completely forgotten that you ever said may come back to haunt you.  With that in mind, I would like you to read the following excerpt from an article by Matt Agorist

Imagine the following scenario: You are on your way home from work, driving down the road when you notice police lights in your rearview mirror. You are being pulled over.

As you sit there, on the shoulder, adrenaline rushing, simultaneously angry and nervous, the police officer, in his patrol car behind you, is sizing you up based on an algorithm that determines your “threat rating.”

The officer enters your license plate into a mobile application on his laptop. In a matter of seconds, this application crawls over billions of records in commercial and public databases, including all available social media engagement, recent purchases and “any comments that could be construed as offensive.” The application then determines if your “threat rating” is green, yellow, or red.

Imagine that you are one of our informed and frequent readers and understand the importance of police accountability and are unafraid to voice your entirely peaceful, yet strong opinion about police misconduct. Imagine that you left a comment on Facebook this morning about a particular officer’s misconduct; imagine that it is this particular officer who just pulled you over.

We live in a society that has become absolutely obsessed with surveillance.

A “Big Brother police state control grid” is being systematically constructed all around us, and we are being watched, tracked, monitored and controlled in hundreds of different ways.

So what can we do about this?

Is there any hope for change?

Well, John W. Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute believes that the key is grassroots activism and non-violent resistance…

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, there is only one feasible solution left to us short of fleeing the country for parts unknown: grassroots activism that strives to reform the government locally and trickles up.

Unfortunately, such a solution requires activism, engagement, vigilance, sacrifice, individualism, community-building, nullification and a communal willingness to reject the federal government’s handouts and, when needed, respond with what Martin Luther King Jr. referred to as “militant nonviolent resistance.”

That means forgoing Monday night football in order to actively voice your concerns at city council meetings, turning off the television and spending an hour reading your local newspaper (if you still have one that reports local news) from front to back, showing your displeasure by picketing in front of government offices, risking your reputation by speaking up and disagreeing with the majority when necessary, refusing to meekly accept whatever the government dictates, reminding government officials—including law enforcement—that they work for you, and working together with your neighbors to present a united front against an overreaching government.

So what do you think?

Will we ever be able to get our privacy back, or has government surveillance become too entrenched?
