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.

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 …

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.

Can America Abandon The Corporatist Grip?

quote-of-all-forms-of-tyranny-the-least-attractive-and-the-most-vulgar-is-the-tyranny-of-mere-theodore-roosevelt-105-77-58

What is all the excitement around the Bernie Sanders diatribes that have the Occupy Democrats drooling?  According to 170 Top Economists Pen Letter Backing Bernie Sanders’ Plan To Break Up The Biggest Banks, the argument made references the “hyperbolic imagery that invokes the bread lines of the Soviet Union and massive famines in China, entirely ignorant of the vast differences between democratic socialism and totalitarian communism – like their refusal to distinguish between “free market capitalism” and “unrestricted plutocracy.”

Implied in this contrast is that the former is desirable, while the later is harmful. Missing in this assessment is that degrees of a toxicant economic model will just kill you more slowly.

The example used in Big Bank Breakups: Who Needs Bernie Sanders When You’ve Got Dodd-Frank?, cited that

“Both JPMorgan and Bank of America have batted away shareholder proposals filed by advocacy group Public Citizen to study breaking up. In a rebuttal to the proposal, Bank of America wrote that it had “significantly streamlined and simplified its organization,” in part by shedding assets not central to its core banking operations. The $73 billion in assets the bank sold off amounts to 3.4 percent of its current net assets.”

Remember all those fond promises after the 2008 collapse about reform legislation? “The 2010 Dodd-Frank Act subjected banks holding more than $50 billion in assets to costly additional capital cushion requirements, among other regulatory hassles.” The net result is that the plutocrat banksters keep growing in size, while watching smaller competitors fall by the wayside.

The Sanders message that government can be trusted to break up the money monopoly may play well to the uninitiated and utopian gazers, but in the real world of power and mind control; establishment institutions and elite cabals work hand in hand to prevent any revamping of substance and realignment in the system.

When the social democrats “pols” psych up their urban dependency masses to demand higher, (up to 90%) taxes on the 1%, the consequences from such a campaign would only lead to even bigger government. And as history proves, all big governments lead to Totalitarian Collectivism, whether run by Communists or Social Democrats.

Don’t look for a reprieve from establishment conservatives either.

David Stockman starts out in his essay, The Warmongers’ Brawl——How The GOP Is Deserting Free Markets, Sound Money And Fiscal Rectitude. “According to Dante’s Divine Comedy the inscription on the gates to hell says, “Abandon hope all ye who enter here”.

“Ronald Reagan’s real sin was that he swallowed hook, line and sinker what was always a phony threat because he was a statist when it came to the military and the machinery of national security. He believed everything they told him and ignored all that he knew about bureaucratic lies, exaggerations and mission creep in the domestic realm.

Stated differently, Washington has no valid mission to seek full employment and egalitarian redistribution of income at home and no legitimate purpose in acting like the world’s policeman and imperial hegemon abroad. Those untoward missions flow from the self-serving machinery of the state because invention of expansionary remits is mostly what state agencies do.”

A central government administered by an FDR or LBJ based upon their war economy, ballooned up the national debt and enlarged both corporatist control of the economy and governmental agency expansion. Nixon and Reagan GOP administrations kept this trend alive with only a minor respite of relief.

The Corporatist grip that has strangled the body politik for well over a century and a half has only grown in magnitude in America. This conclusion cannot be challenged by any honest historian or political scientist. Most politicians may attempt to spin their way around the adverse damage done to the Republic, but rarely ever provide a detailed constructive plan that encourages economic prosperity.

Why such silence? It is not because of a lack in suspect alternatives.

From that bastion of UK democratic socialism, the Guardian examines sustainable business and rethinking prosperity. Their article mentions, John Fullerton’s regenerative capitalismNew Economics Foundation and World Business Council for Sustainable Development. Since Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nation to David Ricardo’s labor theory of value, our modern day economists seem to be mostly clones of John Maynard Keynes.

The East India Company is certainly one of the primary originators of the corporatist mentality. This mindset has been so indoctrinated into the sub-consciousness of the spoon fed media addicts that few people have even a basic understanding of what it takes to build and maintain a viable economy.

A principal reason why inhabitants are so economically illiterate is that their meager existence, both financial and social, has become intermingled with Corporatist dependency that they are unable to learn the practices and skills needed to secure an independent living.

As long as the state ignores the sentiments and petitions from the masses, the cozy buddy relationship between big business and big government will continue. So Bernie’s boys and girls can shout loud and often, all day long, but nothing they do is going to alter the corporatist grip on the seat of power.

Recalling the mass demonstrations during Viet Nam, real pressure put on the establishment to end an unpopular war, was instrumental. However, when the next imperialism campaign erupts as a distraction from the continued economic unraveling, the corporatist plan to deploy their ultimate scheme on the domestic front will be revealed.

Banking holidays are coming, which in turn will raise fears and calls for more government intervention. Bernie’s pals will eagerly shout for the nationalization of the banks. That will be their way of breaking up the JPMorgan’s and Bank of America’s. Nonetheless, do not be deceived. The bankster cartel will survive by morphing into a new and different appearance.

In order to break the grip of the Corporatocracy, the entire debt created money system must be replaced with the issuance of debt free currency. Going to a Weekend at Bernie’s party will do little to revive the stiff. Hell offers no hope, in this divine comedy.

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?

The US Government Has An Internet Killswitch — And It’s None Of Your Business

big-red-button-kill-switch
By: Derrick Broze, Anti-Media |

The Supreme Court has refused to hear a petition concerning the Department of Homeland Security’s secretive internet and cellphone killswitch program.

On Monday the Supreme Court declined to hear a petition from the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) that sought to force the Department of Homeland Security to release details of a secret “killswitch” protocol to shut down cellphone and internet service during emergencies.

EPIC has been fighting since 2011 to release the details of the program, which is known as Standard Operating Procedure 303. EPIC writes, “On March 9, 2006, the National Communications System (‘NCS’) approved SOP 303, however it was never released to the public. This secret document codifies a ‘shutdown and restoration process for use by commercial and private wireless networks during national crisis.’”

EPIC continues, “In a 2006-2007 Report, the President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (‘NSTAC’) indicated that SOP 303 would be implemented under the coordination of the National Coordinating Center (‘NCC’) of the NSTAC, while the decision to shut down service would be made by state Homeland Security Advisors or individuals at DHS. The report indicates that NCC will determine if a shutdown is necessary based on a ‘series of questions.’”

Despite EPIC’s defeat at the hands of the Supreme Court, the four-year court battle yielded a heavily redacted copy of Standard Operating Procedure 303.

The fight for transparency regarding SOP 303 began shortly after a Bay Area Rapid Transit (“BART”) officer in San Francisco shot and killed a homeless man named Charles Hill on July 3, 2011. The shooting sparked massive protests against BART throughout July and August 2011. During one of these protests, BART officials cut off cell phone service inside four transit stations for three hours. This kept anyone on the station platform from sending or receiving phone calls, messages, or other data.

In July 2012, EPIC submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the DHS seeking the full text of Standard Operating Procedure 303; the full text of the predetermined “series of questions” that determines if a shutdown is necessary; and any executing protocols related to the implementation of Standard Operating Procedure 303, distributed to DHS, other federal agencies, or private companies.

After the DHS fought the FOIA releases, a district court in Washington, D.C. ruled in EPIC’s favor, but that ruling was later overturned by the court of appeals. The appeals court told EPIC the government was free to withhold details of the plan under the Freedom of Information Act because the information might “endanger” the public.  In 2015, the digital rights group asked the Supreme Court to review the ruling by the federal appeals court.

With the Supreme Court’s refusal to address EPIC’s petition, the issue seems to have reached a dead-end. The American people are (once again) left in the dark regarding the inner-workings of another dangerous and intrusive government program. It is only through the hard work of activists and groups like EPIC that we are at least aware of the existence of this program — but knowing bits and pieces about the protocol is not enough. In order to combat such heavy-handed measures, we need to have access to the government’s own documents. Hopefully, there is already a whistleblower preparing to release these details.

What we do with the information we do have is up to each of us as individuals. We can sit back and watch the United States further devolve into a militarized police and surveillance state — or we can spread this information, get involved locally, and create new systems outside of the current paradigm of control and exploitation.

Tyranny In France

logo_french_republic

France’s national motto “Liberte, egalite, fraternite” is a meaningless slogan, spurned by police state authority – things heading toward becoming worse than ever.

Fundamental rule of law principles don’t apply. Article 13 of France’s 2014-2019 defense appropriation legislation permits monitoring, collecting and maintaining Internet user data – without judicial oversight.

Surveillance is authorized for any conduct authorities deem potentially harmful to French “scientific or economic potential.”

State anti-terrorism legislation eviscerates civil liberties protections, draconian measures substituting. Virtually anything can be called a national security threat – measures in place and coming to protect it fundamentally destroying the letter and spirit if a free society.

President Francois Hollande and Prime Minister Manual Valls want draconian state of emergency powers institutionalized in France’s constitution.

If enacted, they’ll permit unrestrained extrajudicial house and community raids, mosques shut down, free expression and movement restrictions along with other draconian measures, transforming France into a full-blown police state.

Hollande wants the right to rule by state of emergency powers, with no limitation on their duration, along with greater Big Brother mass surveillance than already – despite no threat whatever to French security.

The only terrorist threats are state-sponsored. None others exist. On Wednesday, cabinet ministers approved Hollande’s proposal in principle, including letting authorities strip native-born French citizenship from dual nationals convicted of alleged terrorist crimes.

Hollande acted in response to the state-sponsored November 13 Paris false flag, killing scores, taking full advantage, telling parliamentarians:

“We must be able to strip the French citizenship of any person convicted of attacking the fundamental interests of the nation or of an act of terrorism, even if he (or she) is born French” – even if pronounced guilty when innocent.

France’s Nazi-collaborationist Vichy regime imposed collective nationality deprivations to strip thousands of Jews and others of their citizenship rights, especially individuals suspected of involvement with resistance activities.

Deportations to death camps followed. France under Hollande is a hair’s breadth from fast-approaching full-blown tyranny.

Fascism defines his agenda along with allying with US imperial wars – pretending unity with Russia’s anti-terrorism campaign while supporting ISIS and likeminded groups he claims to oppose.

The CRIF umbrella group representing French Jewish communities strongly backs Hollande’s draconian proposal. Following the November 13 Paris attacks, police and other security forces conducted hundreds of extrajudicial community and house intrusions, targeting Muslims, environmental activists and others threatening no one.

Expect a sweeping policy of state terror to intensify with constitutional authorization of Hollande’s draconian proposal – possibly equating criticism of Israel with terrorism.

Parliament will consider the scheme in February. Passage requires a three-fifths majority from both houses or national referendum approval.

Enactment into law assures full-blown tyranny – “Liberte, egalite, fraternite” officially consigned to the dustbowl of history.

The Way To Overcome The Conspiracy Part 3: Govern Yourself

If you govern yourself, you become more free and reduce the need for outside authority or Government.

If you govern yourself, you become more free and reduce the need for outside authority or Government.

(Part 1, Part 2)

Govern yourself. That way, you don’t need anyone to do it for you. And more importantly, you don’t allow anyone to do it for you. This is part 3 of The Way to Overcome the Conspiracy series (click here for part 1 and part 2), aimed at helping the average person feel more empowered and less overwhelmed when facing the New World Order (NWO) conspiracy. Government today is dangerous, tyrannical and out-of-control, but don’t worry – there is something you can do about it!

What Does it Mean to Govern Yourself?

To govern yourself is to take care of your life, affairs, livelihood, relationships, everything – all without needing outside help or interference. It means you are independent, responsible and self-sufficient. It doesn’t mean you have to do everything for yourself, live in an isolated place, grow all your own food and have no contact with the outside world. People have been trading and interacting since the dawn of man! But it does mean that when you trade you do it fairly and honorably, keeping your agreements and not using deceit. As long as you steal, lie or cheat others, they will feel wronged by you, and seek to redress that wrong. This means they may appeal to outside authorities to do this, which brings in the whole concept of “government”.

To truly govern yourself means to ensure all your relationships are conducted with integrity, so that no one would ever have the need to sue you, bring a claim against you or even bring in some kind of outside authority to resolve a dispute with you. You would work things out with anyone before it got to that point.

When you truly govern yourself, the need for an outside governing force disappears.

If you take responsibility for yourself, you don’t need others (our so-called representatives) trying to taking responsibility for you, and therefore asserting control over you.

Why is it Important to Govern Yourself?

This automatically equates to less tyranny.

This automatically equates to less tyranny.

When you govern yourself, you take matters into your own hands. You start with the person in the mirror. Remember, the biggest sphere of influence you can control is your own thoughts, words and actions. You can’t control backroom deals made by corrupt politicians on the world stage, but you can ensure you conduct your business and personal life in a just and honest way.

Think about it: if everyone started governing themselves, they would resolve disputes among themselves, thus eliminating the need for so many rules and regulations. In short, it would reduce dependence on the law. We would have less need for law, less need for police to enforce the law and less need for courts and judges to adjudicate the law.

There’s a direct formula here: increase self-responsibility, increase self-freedom. Or simply, increase responsibility, increase freedom.

Additionally, if people started to govern themselves better, it would include critical thinking. You can’t outsource critical thinking, although it appears that’s what Rockefeller-funded mainstream education curricula are trying to trick us into doing (see the Deliberate Dumbing Down of America). You have to think for yourself; no one can think for you. Governing yourself means thinking for yourself and carefully evaluating what information comes your way. Those who govern themselves are far less susceptible to deceptive propaganda and brainwashing, upon which tyrannies like the NWO depend. When you end ignorance, you’ll end the control system, too.

If you Govern Yourself, Will you Really Overcome the Conspiracy?

If you govern yourself, you’ll be more sovereign. The amount of government control over you will diminish. When enough of us do this and we reach a critical mass, society will change. The size of Government will shrink, either disappearing altogether or at least becoming very limited in scope (as was the original intention in the setting up of the United States of America and other nations).

Remember, it is your responsibility to investigate and understand the forces governing you! Once you take your power back and do everything you can to better manage your own affairs and life, you’ll be amazed at how more free you are – and you’ll inspire others to help overcome the conspiracy we all face.

Know Nothing – The Reality Of The American Experience (VIDEOS)

know-nothing

Oh, remember those “good old days“. Discrimination and ethnic exclusion was the norm and a political party stood for “red meat” self-interest. The catcalls today ring with a “PC” note, how dare anyone even allude that restricting immigration can be part of open debate? The memory of the American Republican Party fades into vagueness of ignorance, knowing history is not a requirement of the modern Know Nothings. If you are one of these marginal historians, how can you be expected to appreciate the anti-immigrant sentiment that existed over a century and half ago?

Just how rewarding has, the long corrosive experiment of open border been to the average family and taxpayer! Ask the discerning author, Frosty Wooldridge, who is an unambiguous source of the topic. Debating the merits is long over for most people, the overwhelming consensus is build a fence high enough that ladders won’t reach. Ignoring and dismissing popular outrage are the underlying lessons the caretakers of the corporate/state smear in your face.

States’ Rights are anathema on the Georgetown salon circuit. The Tenth Amendment is a curse word among proponents that claim each additional abuse is fostered for the good of the children.

Know-Nothing members back in the mid 19th century did not suffer with this infliction. That is the reason they are so maligned in the history books, written by ivory tower cosmopolite thinkers. The will of the masses is repugnant to the superior vision of the masters of the universe. State legislatures stack up no better.

The State Sovereignty Movement is a response to Federal Government omnipresence. Dave Nalle writes,

“You may not have heard much about it, but there’s a quiet movement afoot to reassert state sovereignty and stop the uncontrolled expansion of federal government power. Almost half of the state legislatures are considering or have representatives preparing to introduce resolutions which reassert the principles of the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution and the idea that federal power is strictly limited to specific areas detailed in the Constitution and that all other governmental authority rests with the states.

The founding fathers believed in a balance between state and federal power. This state sovereignty movement clearly arises from the belief that the balance of power has tilted too far and for too long in the direction of the federal government and that it’s time to restore that lose balance.

The emergence of this movement is a hopeful sign of the people asserting their rights and the rights of the states and finally crying “enough” to runaway government. With the threat of increasingly out of control federal spending, some of these sovereignty bills may stand a fair chance of passage in the coming year”.

A list of links to proposed legislation is found on InfoWars.com.

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

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

Nullify Now! is a multi-city event tour focused on education and activism on a state level to say NO to unconstitutional federal “laws” – which, in reality, are not laws at all. The author of the book named simply, Nullification, firebrand Tom Woods makes a reasoned and passionate argument. Judge for yourself the logic in this video.

Mr. Woods’ founding in Austrian Economics alone qualifies him to be on a homeland watch list, so adding the sacrilege of federal disobedience to his crimes and misdemeanors, surely warrants his burning at the stake.

Hence, the nullification method is a risky venture, what about calling a Constitutional Convention.

Philip Klein, in the American Spector, states, “Under Article V of the Constitution, “Congress… on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which… shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States.”

Now that’s an option that places the entire federal octopus at risk of revamping, or does it?

The reality of calling a convention is the practical consequence that the entire U.S. Constitution could be amended out of existence. Held bare and stripped of intended Bill of Right protections results in a naked corpse of original substance. Just think about all the political elites and careerists that would kill to be a delegate at the craving up of the remains of the Republic.

The sensible warning of the John Birch Society makes a clear argument against the Barnett approach. Watch the video Beware Article V for grounding in political acumen.

“On April 23 the Wall Street Journal published an opinion piece by Professor Randy Barnett of Georgetown University, “The Case for a Federalism Amendment: How the Tea Partiers can make Washington pay attention.” In this article, Barnett correctly observed that the Tenth Amendment “sovereignty resolutions,” under consideration by over half the states this year, are not likely to have the slightest impact on the federal courts. From this reasonable observation, Barnett proceeded to assert that “state legislatures have a real power under the Constitution by which to resist the growth of federal power: They can petition Congress for a convention to propose amendments to the Constitution.”

Barnett then went on to admit that “An amendments convention is feared because its scope cannot be limited in advance.” However, at this point he advocated a dangerous course. He proposed that the “tea-party enthusiasts” adopt the project of getting his Federalism Amendment added to the Constitution and also adopt his strategy of getting enough state legislatures to apply to Congress to call a constitutional convention, so that Congress becomes scared of the prospect of a con-con and agrees to endorse his amendment and present it to the states for ratification”.

After all these dead end options, what is left for a citizen to choose?

Enter the wisdom of the Know Nothings. Ridding the nation of heretical religious elements (secular humanism) and stopping “foreign” influences (Zionism) from destroying the essence of the nation, a proactive restoration of founding principles constitutes the best hope to establish a genuine NATIVISM.

For too long people fear being labeled as malcontents, bigots or anti-Semitics for speaking out about the real reasons why the Republic is in shambles. Secrecy does not cut it. Fifth Column traitors have hijacked our government. Safety concerns are pale in comparison to the enemy within. Catholic immigrants did not create the Federal Reserve. Destructive immigration is a symptom of the fatal disease that eagerly embraces the globalism of mass destruction.

A better name to adopt is that “we know too much” and we will no longer look the other way and acquiesce. We know that it is not an accident that despotism is the absolute objective of the ruling class.

The actual know nothings no longer are keeping secrets; they are passing laws to imprison an entire society. The “waving the bloody shirt” now is wrapped in the filth from the soiled treason of Government First storm troopers, working the system to eliminate patriotic citizens from their wealth, liberty and ultimately their lives.

Battalions of lawyers scorch the earth as Sherman pillaged Georgia. Legions of bureaucrats administer carpetbag dictates so that the slaves stay in line. The banksters steal the wealth and build more plantations, as they pollute the drinking water and fix the price of cotton. The federal master will not allow peaceful secession. State sovereignty conflicts with federal supremacy. If a dictatorial government promotes overseas drone extermination, just imagine how much more effective domestic slaughter would be.

What remnants left of constitutional law, a new constitutional convention will just supplant the “con job” coerced upon the States during the fraudulent 1787-1790 ratification process. Sorry folks, the system provide no resolution without the abolishment of the political culture that allows power elites control of their created federal monster.

As long as the public tolerates tyranny, claims they know nothing of such abuses, or refuses to acknowledge that the enemy of the nation is the STATE itself, nothing will improve. The only faint hope for a Nativist country is a renaissance of traditional American values and a repudiation of federal government allegiance. This kind of revolt is the best kind of nullification and secession, as the best path back, to States’ Rights.

Continuity Of Government Commission

 

10cartoon_bA

It is amazing that so many citizens are eager to espouse the virtues of democracy. Multitudes of Americans love their government, no matter what it does or where it goes – the State is their mistress. Trusting in the institutions of the federal government is an article of faith, democracy protects the public, voting selects the representatives. Are you a ‘true believer’ in the system that serves the populace? Or are you one of those awful cynics that knock the good intentions of the inner circle that brings freedom and justice to the little folks?  Surely, you count yourself among the chorus of the cheering crowd! Now you have your fondest dream – coming soon – to safeguard the protector of the people. It’s focus is on preserving Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court and comes from “The Continuity of Government Commission”.

The commission is an American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and Brookings Institution project headquartered at AEI. It is funded by the Carnegie, Hewlett, Packard, and MacArthur foundations. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford are the honorary co-chairs of the commission and Lloyd Cutler and Alan Simpson are the chairmen. The commission includes members who have served in government at the highest levels.

Their first report is now available.  Here are some of their proposals:

Rep. Brian Baird H.J. Res 67- a constitutional amendment to give governors the power to make temporary appointments to the House of Representatives if more than 25% of the members have been killed or incapacitated.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren H.J. Res. 77 – a constitutional amendment to allow Congress to make provisions for temporary appointments of members if 30% of the seats are vacant.

Sen. Arlen Specter S.J. Res. 30 – a constitutional amendment to give governors the power to make temporary appointments to the House of Representatives if more than 50% of the members have been killed or incapacitated. Temporary members shall be of the same party as the member who previously occupied the seat.

Norman Ornstein Proposal – a constitutional amendment to give governors the power to make temporary appointments when a majority of the state congressional delegations have been significantly diminished. Temporary appointments can be made to fill the seat of temporarily incapacitated members, but once a member recovers his or her original seat is reclaimed.

Michael Davidson Proposal – a constitutional amendment to give governors the power to make temporary appointments to fill all vacancies.

Michael Glennon Proposal – a constitutional amendment to give the power to Congress to devise a legislative solution to the problem of mass vacancies.

Rep. Brad Sherman H.R. 3816 – an amendment to the presidential succession act allowing the president to designate either the Speaker of the House or the House Majority Leader as third in the line of succession and either the Senate Majority or Minority Leader as fourth in the line of succession.

Rep. Jim Langevin H.R. 3481 – a proposal to direct the National Institute of Standards and Technology to study the feasibility of remote voting and communication among members of Congress.

Alton Frye Proposal – a proposal to allow for members of the House of Representatives to designate their own temporary successors in advance to provide for the case of mass vacancies.

Don Wolfensberger Proposal – a proposal to expedite special elections in the case of mass vacancies and to allow incapacitated members to take temporary leaves of absence.

If you are one of those types that hesitate to amend the constitution, then Charles E. Rice, professor emeritus, Notre Dame Law School might raise the relevant question: “The Patriot Act was enacted by the full House and Senate after 9/11. That act is a subject of debate and concern as a dubious and hasty response to that crisis. If both elected chambers of Congress can produce such a questionable law, why would it make sense to nail into the Constitution a potential warrant to empower a Congress, dominated by unelected appointees, to enact whatever it sees as an appropriate response to such a crisis?”

He continues:  “Without a single exception, every person who has ever served as a member of the House of Representatives has been elected to that office by the people of his district. This is a non-negotiable point.” Then he cites in The Federalist, No: 52, James Madison – “The definition of the right of suffrage is very justly regarded as a fundamental article of republican government”.

The devil is always in the details; moreover, the Moloch to whom your Liberty is scarified, habitually is the bureaucracy. COGC is a feeble attempt to cloak the appearance of legitimacy, when the functions of martial law without the mien of a “goose-step” parade, are actually performed by executive administration. If Madison’s prerequisite for a republican government is indispensable, why continue with the illusion that his constitution still rules the rulers?

Intelligent observers of representative democracy comprehend that voting has been reduced to selecting between tweedle-dumb or tweedle-dee. So it does not come as a surprise that politicos would want to avoid the inconvenience of running for office. They already pass legislation to perpetuate their power, so why not take the next logical progression and march directly to a permanent seat?

The mindset that allows for serious consideration of COGC reasoning is typical of the national surrender to phantom dangers. Let’s just suppose that the unthinkable (or is that the sanguine) happened and during the State of the Union – the assembly evaporated! Would anyone believe that the federal government would disappear? If anything, it would operate on a scale that it has invariably aspired to achieve for decades. The management of society, by an unaccountable bureaucracy, is the norm for centralized planning. Hardly the form of a Republic, empowered by the consent of free citizens. Apathy should not be confused with approval. However; today, most of the public prefers to abandon sensible self interest and acquiesce to political manipulation.

Rep. Ron Paul is dead on: “Let’s face it: we can scare people and doom-say anytime we wish, but it would only be in the case of a near-complete annihilation that our government would fail to function. In such an instance there is no “system” that will preserve our government. On the other hand, if we surrender the right to elect people to the U.S. House of Representatives under any circumstances, we will be on a slippery slope away from the few remaining vestiges and most precious principles of the government left to us by our founders”.

Skeptics of federal government wisdom should adopt cynicism in their motives. COGC is the latest threat, intent to remove the final roadblock – the voice of the voter.

Psychology Of Tyranny For A Philosophy Of Despotism

tsa-tyranny

“A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny.” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The underpinnings that fallaciously attempt to justify despotic regimes rely upon the perverted practice of controlling the public mindset in weak societies. The indisputable evidence that civilization is regressing at lightning speed is all us. Governments are becoming irrelevant with the passage of illegitimate authority consolidating into the hands of oligarchic cabals and global tyrants. An objective study of the voluntary abandonment of individual sovereignty is worthy of an entire scholarly discipline. However, before confused citizens seek psychoanalysis on a couch of technocrat design, the basic principles of a classical education should be applied.

Philosophical inquiry is meant to seek an understanding of the truth. Truth, when known, vindicates the dignity of the person and the value intrinsic within the human race. Therefore, it comes as a great letdown to face up to the horrendous savageness that society accepts as typical behavior. The Psychological techniques used to train people to accept tyranny as the normal course of conduct is practiced by every despotic regime.

Jon Roland in an essay, Principles of Tyranny provides a valuable insight.

“Perhaps one of the things that most distinguishes those with a fascist mentality from most other persons is how they react in situations that engender feelings of insecurity and inadequacy.

The emergence of tyranny therefore begins with challenges to a group, develops into general feelings of insecurity and inadequacy, and falls into a pattern in which some individuals assume the role of “father” to the others, who willingly submit to becoming dependent “children” of such persons if only they are reassured that a more favorable outcome will be realized. This pattern of co-dependency is pathological, and generally results in decision-making of poor quality that makes the situation even worse, but, because the pattern is pathological, instead of abandoning it, the co-dependents repeat their inappropriate behavior to produce a vicious spiral that, if not interrupted, can lead to total breakdown of the group and the worst of the available outcomes.

In psychiatry, this syndrome is often discussed as an “authoritarian personality disorder”. In common parlance, as being a “control freak”.

Mr. Roland identifies the following traits associated with a tyrannical regime.

Control of public information and opinion Use of the law for competition suppression
Vote fraud used to prevent the election of reformers Creation of a class of officials who are above the law
Undue official influence on trials and juries Subversion of internal checks and balances
Usurpation of undelegated powers Conversion of rights into privileges
Seeking a government monopoly on the capability and use of armed force Increasing public ignorance of their civic duties and reluctance to perform them
Militarization of law enforcement Political correctness
Infiltration and subversion of citizen groups that could be forces for reform Increasing dependency of the people on government
Suppression of investigators and whistleblowers Use of staged events to produce popular support

The consequences that follow disturb psychological attributes often reflected in an Hobbism view of government. Thomas Hobbes, believed that ‘order’ and effective law enforcement were the primary conditions for human survival (‘In the state of nature … no society’) Hobbes viewed human beings as essentially selfish and thought that democracy could easily degenerate into chaos, poor government and eventually civil war. The kind of governments that would have been approved by Hobbes would include benevolent dictators and enlightened despots and monarchies.

For those who accept this position as a foundation of a pseudo vindication for authoritarian rule, Enlightened Despotism becomes the norm. The masses learn to accept the vicious obvious as the inevitable surrender to the profane. The propaganda used to indoctrinate the public that acceptance of progressive thought as preferable to classic principles of human dignity has a long history.

Going back to the era where kings and queens needed an argument to convince the populace that their authority was justified, the reliance upon psychological distortion was common.

Enlightened Absolutism or Enlightened Despotism as it is more often called can be defined as a form of government strongly influenced by the wide propagation of ideas and the political philosophy of the Enlightenment. It is a term first used by the Philosophes in the second half of the 18th century that manifested to describe a particular phase in the development of absolutism. The term ‘Enlightened Despot’ refers to those 18th century monarchs who were familiar with the ideas of the Enlightenment and distinguished themselves from regular despots by the way they governed.”

Today the same attempts to deceive are employed with all the sophistication that modern technology can develop. The best example of the current cult of mind control and historic distortion is found in the Neo-Conservatism that has hijacked the Republican Party.

Norman D. Livergood uses a contemporary NeoCon example to illustrate the anti-intellectual disconnect use to justify despotic rule.

“Leo Strauss is the “Fascist Godfather of the neoconservatives.” His neocon disciples believe that an elite should use deception, religious fervor and perpetual war to control the credulous American population. The primary goal of Strauss and his disciples is to turn back the clock of history to before the Enlightenment, when ancient tyrannies ruled without restraint.

A Leo Strauss could only become a professor of philosophy in a demented age in which people in general and scholars in particular could not see through his nonsense. Strauss, for example, claimed to have “discovered” a Plato without a doctrine of ideas or immortality of the soul, a Plato without metaphysics.”

Much of the media’s distorted worldview is essentially a philistine portrayal of an absurd account of events. The significance of their misinformation embeds a disinformation culture with even more advanced distortions. Without a sincere commitment to follow the search for truth and act upon valid conclusions from the evidence uncovered, no country can exist as a free nation.

America has fallen into a deep and extensive delusional state of mind since 911. The Tyrannical trait that Mr. Roland lists expanded and intensified in the last decade. The pathetic justification used and repeated to sell despotism is that the “War on Terror” requires a suspension of constitutional protections. Such obscene rhetoric should be abhorrent to any rational and moral citizen. Yet, the absence of objective inquiry only leads to the inevitability of despotic tyranny.

Forgo the politics of 911 if you must, but listen and examine the conclusions of Christopher Rudy and ask yourself why facts no longer matter to so many people.

“The reality is that the American people, as individuals, have lost their courage. The government prefers it that way, as a fearful people are easier to rule than a courageous one. But Americans don’t wish to lose their self-image of courage. So, when confronted with a situation demanding courage to challenge a government gone wrong, the American people simply pretend that the situation does not exist. Cherished illusions supersede hard reality.

When the World Trade Towers collapsed, most Americans simply refused to believe suggestions that the attacks had been staged by parties working for the U.S. Government itself. Americans were afraid to, even as news reports surfaced proving that the U.S. Government had announced plans for the invasion of Afghanistan early in the year, plans into which the attacks on the World Trade Towers which angered the American people into support of the already-planned war fit entirely too conveniently. But so trapped are Americans by their belief in their own bravery that they will themselves to be blind to the evidence before their eyes so that they can nod in agreement with the government while still imagining themselves to have courage, even as they avoid the one situation which most requires real courage; to stand up to the government’s lies and deceptions.”

At play in this. Mr. Rudy analysis is an implicit acknowledgement of the regretful mind control used to exert the psychological tyranny that is so easily accepted, when the majority believes in a philosophy of despotism. This illogical philosophy adopts the state worship of the NeoCon War Party. Ignored or rejected is the remarkable basis and essential nature upon which lead to the creation of this country.

Refusal to question or exhibiting the timidity by sitting on their hands, after knowing the ridiculousness of official accounts of government benevolence, rejects the entire heritage of philosophical inquiry. Hobbes view of human nature seems accurate. However, his alternative for the State provides false cover for the despots that thrive on their desire for psychological manipulation of citizens for the benefit of their tyrannical fellow travelers.

The sickness that engulfs society today is a direct result of abandoning the search for truth. Tyranny can be defeated, but it will take courage to break away from the psychopathic distortions and lies. It will take brave souls to confront the normal pattern of despotism. This objective bears the ultimate fruits from living a life of philosophical integrity.

“The three aims of the tyrant are, one, the humiliation of his subjects; he knows that a mean-spirited man will not conspire against anybody; two, the creation of mistrust among them; for a tyrant is not to be overthrown until men begin to have confidence in one another — and this is the reason why tyrants are at war with the good; they are under the idea that their power is endangered by them, not only because they will not be ruled despotically, but also because they are too loyal to one another and to other men, and do not inform against one another or against other men — three, the tyrant desires that all his subjects shall be incapable of action, for no one attempts what is impossible and they will not attempt to overthrow a tyranny if they are powerless.” -Aristotle

5 Ways Government False Flags Offer Hope To The Blind

false flags

As many truth seekers have observed over the past year, government false flag operations are now the norm. Almost every week and sometimes every day we hear about some kind of lie surrounding an act of violence. These tales are being told to us by government through their mouthpiece media. Our current day system is in love with staged terror and mass shootings as they fit in perfectly with the state’s number one plan, which is to generate fear in order to keep the sheep under control.

Despite the fear, insecurity and desperation that arises from fake terror and staged false flag shootings, the typical blind sheep, consumed in the government’s false reality, will quietly root for government to muster up enough firepower and macho-man brute force to kill, defeat, blow up, murder, dispose of or take out the “enemy”. Who’s the enemy? It’s whoever the government mouthpiece media and the puppet politicians say it is. The enemy will always fit in perfectly with the government’s stated long term plans. Once you know and understand the script nothing will surprise you.

So how can it be that false flags offer hope to those who are blind to the current world events and the intention of the globalists I.E. the sheep? Here are 5 ways that false flag operations offer hope to those blind about the new world order plans:

1- Sense of safety

False flag operations create a sense of danger and thus an illusion of government safety from this perceived danger. The illusion suggests that unless government is around, you will not be able to defend yourself, you are thus incomplete without government’s safety. This illusion of course is based on the belief that government exists to protect you somehow. One must believe that it is in the interest of government for you as an individual to feel good, feel happy and feel safe. Even though there is no proof, historic account or train of logic to justify this assumption, many brainwashed coincidence (non-conspiracy) theorists will believe this blindly.

2- Confidence in government fighting skills

False flag operations suggest that government has all the skills to catch and kill the bad guys even if its after they inflict their damage. The illusion falsely suggests that this current (now dead) terrorist will never harm you again. Thus after murdering the terrorist patsy or shooter government is seen as the efficient skillful avenger of the deaths of its citizens.

Remember “Operation Iraqi Freedom” or the initial invasion of Afghanistan? Most Americans bought into it, even rooted for the attacks because it gave them as sense of vengeance over the supposed “terrorists” who did 9/11. This is all about appealing to people’s lower-brain primitive drive of anger and getting even. Don’t be fooled.

3- Government cares about you

False flag terror attacks offer hope to the blind sheep by suggesting that government actually cares about the people above and beyond the false claims of wanting to keep everyone safe. Like a concerned loving parent, during a typical staged false flag, government and it’s politicians have a chance to pretend like they care about people. The notion that government loves and cares is so far detached from reality it is difficult to put into words. Nothing could be further from the truth. Governments do not exist to love and care about anyone. The nature of governments is quite the contrary. Nonetheless, the latest false flags all have been used as platforms for to sell false sympathy, love and genuine concern for humanity.

4- Government is resilient, you should be resilient

False flag staged event offer hope to the blind sheep by showing them how resilient and able to bound back their government is. Government always carries on as usual after a false flag. They know that the primary purpose of a false flag is to instill fear not to slow down the economy or interfere with Wall Street. The blind sheep however, see this as a sign of how “strong” America is. They admire how “America” and it’s courageous people keep right on shopping, spending money and maintain their ordinary lives. To those that are blind and fooled by the false flag, this is a powerful symbol of strength and resilience on the part of their country. Just another thick layer of deception surrounding government false flags.

5- Government is selfless and altruistic

Hope is spread amongst the blind in the midst of typical government false flag attack by showing the sheep that government is not just a loving and caring government who cares about your safety but that government is willing to put off its own tasks to focus on new speedy legislation to implement measures in response (reaction) to the false flag staged attack so that this type of attack doesn’t happen again.

Some of these points may overlap a bit and sound pathetic even ridiculous to anyone paying attention but face it, many people really are this brainwashed and they actually think this way. Many dumbed-down blind sheep, zombies, and brainwashed slaves who listen to mainstream media news think just like this. This alone should sound an alarm to anyone who is awakened and cares about humanity, to push them to stay active, stay strong and keep fighting the government controlled disinformation machine known as the mainstream media and all of government’s politician puppets mouthpieces.

Remember, as bizarre and surreal as all of this sounds, this world of government acting as a caring parent, looking out for the best of humanity, is the only concept of government the blind sheep know. The thought of government actually staging attacks against its own people to keep them in fear is far too scary for the slaves to accept. This fear actually gives birth to an ignorance that acts to protect the brain. This cognitive dissonance actually works as a defense mechanism to preserve the sanity of the being. To stay sane the poor blind sheep not only believe whatever they are told but they actually look to government for protection from the artificial threats engineered by this same government.

This is how its done and this is precisely how government maintains its power over the people. Let’s start our counter-attack by continuing to spread the truth about the real reasons why government stages terror attacks and the sequence of logic that drives the existence and functioning of government. The hope is to explain government false flags to where a child can understand it. Let’s remind others of the importance of starting our search for truth by focusing on the most important things first.

It is infinitely true and factual that with all things being equal, the best starting point to understand and explain what really happened in any event is to consider motive and who has most to gain. It is also infinitely true that the notion of maintaining power and control is a much more dominating factor in the explanation of an unknown event than the notion of the quest for “safety” and benevolence on the part of a controlling system of government.

This one lie told to humanity about the benevolent nature of government being the more likely explanation than the argument for maintaining power and control is singlehandedly one of the great lies humanity has endured since the beginning of time.

Throughout all of human history there are countless examples of controlling governments oppressing humanity and constantly pushing for more and more power and control. The notion of government constantly looking out for the safety and well being of its citizens by turning the country into a police state of rigid draconian laws is entirely fictional from A to Z.  Government is and always will be a concept that seeks to maintain its existence and control over every citizen.

So as truth seekers seeking truth, it is our duty to shatter the false hope many people have that government is an innocent good Samaritan watching its citizens and looking out for its well being. This hope is delusional, naive and profoundly disconnected from reality, yet sadly this is the root of the logic many hold on to as they continue falling for the false flags which are now happening almost daily.

Will humanity actually overcome this mental defect being expressed in possibly at least half of its population? Let us hope so and let us all keep hammering away and continue exposing government false flags in real-time.

Congratulations to the other half of humanity for now nearly mastering the skill of exposing government false flags in real-time. A skill that came with a lot of practice and opportunities.  Let us remain vigilant and hope that we, as a whole, can stay on top of government false flags and are able to continue exposing them until they go away all together. Picture a world without false flags- something very difficult to do today. Thus the focus of true hope is now clear.

Drenched In War

iraq-war-shock-and-awe-jpg-720x340

I sat down with Chris Powell, Secretary/Treasurer GATA, to discuss what is happening in the world of silver and gold “market” rigging. The picture Chris paints is accurate and ugly. As I am editing the recording it dawned on me that our world is a disaster, primarily at the hands of the U.S. foreign policy and the debt instrument U.S. dollar. The U.S. dollar is now a parasite that most governments, around the world, see as nothing more than a tool that creates war and problems in their nation. Why else would the dollar be outlawed in Russia and China conducting business using direct currency swaps instead of the “reserve currency” U.S. dollar?

If you trust your government, good for you. If you don’t, you may want to consider having a little silver and gold to protect yourself from their treasonous ways. Our world is changing at an ever increasing pace and you can either protect yourself or be swept away in the unfolding currency war or hot war. The governments around the world could care less about you and your family. You are merely an ATM to fund their wars and provide them with entertainment. Once you have served those two purposes…well, into the trash bin.

Nuclear weapons can only destroy the world, but since gold is the primary mechanism of the rigging of the currency market and related markets, it is also the most valuable object for exploiting the world. If you want to destroy the world that’s one thing, if you want to exploit the world what you have to do is control the currency market and gold is necessary to do that. ~Chris Powell

Our world is drenched in war. According to a recent report the U.S. has troops or some type of military operation in 147 countries or 75% of the world. Does that sound like an empire? Why would that be necessary? What could your community do with a portion of the funds that it cost to operate this empirical nightmare? The U.S. should have the finest roads, bridges, hospitals, schools and the highest educational standards in the world, but instead, we have war; death and destruction as far as the eye can see. As I have stated on numerous occasions the U.S. business model is war and the U.S. dollar is backed by war. We have been reduced to manufacturing war instead of cars, garden tools and clothing.

In order to better understand how all this is possible we must look at the source of funding. War is not cheap and the maintenance of war has a very high cost; not just in lives lost and communities destroyed but in the actual funding. From where does this funding materialize?

The scandal is not what’s illegal, but what’s perfectly legal. ~Charles Peters

The Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF), which is a function of the U.S. Treasury, answers to no one, not even Congress. The laws surrounding the ESF were put into place in order to hide what happens with the money. Here is how the U.S. Treasury explains what the ESF actual is and does:

The Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF) consists of three types of assets:  U.S. dollars, foreign currencies, and Special Drawing Rights (SDRs), which is an international reserve asset created by the International Monetary Fund.  The financial statement of the ESF can be accessed at “Reports” or “Finances and Operations.” 

The ESF can be used to purchase or sell foreign currencies, to hold U.S. foreign exchange and Special Drawing Rights (SDR) assets, and to provide financing to foreign governments. All operations of the ESF require the explicit authorization of the Secretary of the Treasury (“the Secretary”). 

The Secretary is responsible for the formulation and implementation of U.S. international monetary and financial policy, including exchange market intervention policy. The ESF helps the Secretary to carry out these responsibilities. By law, the Secretary has considerable discretion in the use of ESF resources.

The legal basis of the ESF is the Gold Reserve Act of 1934. As amended in the late 1970s, the Act provides in part that “the Department of the Treasury has a stabilization fund …Consistent with the obligations of the Government in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on orderly exchange arrangements and an orderly system of exchange rates, the Secretary …, with the approval of the President, may deal in gold, foreign exchange, and other instruments of credit and securities.

####

And from Wikipedia:

The fund began operations in April 1934, financed by $2 billion of the $2.8 billion paper profit the government realized from raising the price of gold to $35 an ounce from $20.67. The act authorized the ESF to use its capital to deal in gold and foreign exchange to stabilize the exchange value of the dollar. The ESF as originally designed was part of the executive branch not subject to legislative oversight.

If you listen, the criminals in charge will always tell you what they are stealing and how they are stealing it. Your responsibility is to listen and act. Even if the citizens were to band together and demand full accountability of this fund – which is our money – the laws are written to deny us access! Can you say treason? Sure you can.

All we know about the Exchange Stabilization Fund is what the law authorizes it to do. It’s powers have been expanded, so that it is authorized to trade secretly, not only in gold but, in any financial instrument what-so-ever. While we would like to call market rigging criminal, in a metaphorical sense, it’s a matter of law in the United States.~Chris Powell

So, our world is drenched in war, the U.S. has military personal/equipment covering 75% of the planet and, by law, a secret fund, with absolutely no oversight from anyone, is allowed to rig any and all markets and financial instruments! WOW. Is it just me or does something seem out of balance with this scenario?

They hate us for our freedom.” ~George W. Bush

We can only guess at the real exchange rate for gold and silver. The propaganda instruments, formally known as markets, are all rigged by governments around the world. It is no secret some of the “too big to jail” banks have been “fined” for rigging the LIBOR market and FOREX market. LIBOR (London Interbank Overnight Rate) determines the amount of interest the banks pay one-another for short term overnight “loans”. This has been found to be rigged, in a court of law. The FOREX (Foreign Exchange), currency exchange market, has also been found to be rigged, in a court of law. If you think either of these markets don’t have a direct impact on your life, I ask, what do you “own” that you are currently paying interest? What about a credit card? If you possess something that you are currently paying interest, both of these rigged markets have a direct impact on your wealth, your ability to garner more credit and your ability to save for your future.

If all markets are rigged and their lies a function within the U.S. Treasury that answers to no one (the ESF), who is to say this function of the Treasury is not funding the wars? Who is to say this function within the U.S. government is not rigging the markets or providing the information to the “too big to jail banks” for them to do the actual dirty work? Who is to say this secret function of the U.S. Treasury is not THE source of the unfolding nightmare within our economy and financial systems – THE WORLD OVER? You can not say the ESF is not doing these things as they answer to no one. Until the system implodes we are stuck with rigged markets, propaganda and endless war.

A Banana Republic Ripe For A Coup d’état

281_cartoon_obama_puppet_hurwitt_large

The Disunited States of America is no longer a country of national union. From the inception of the U.S. Constitution, factions continually vied for power. Yet there was a blueprint of basic precepts generally accepted as the law of the land. The appearance of legitimacy was shattered a century and half ago, that foretold the “War of Northern Aggression”. The American Revolution permanently betrayed is but a memory of past glories. The rule of law now relegated to an exhibit in a wax museum.

Today, the federal government ignores and systematically eliminates Civil Liberties, real States’ Rights, authentic Nullification and a viable Tenth Amendment. The recent arrest of attorney and publisher of ConspiracyPenPal.com, Edgar J. Steele illustrates how an arbitrary selective arrest under a stratocracy of repression is possible. Read the report in the IdahoStatesman.com on the charges. Following is a letter from Mr. Steele’s prison cell to Ingri Cassel, former owner of The Idaho Observer.

Dear Ingri,

Thank you for your letter.

All calls out are almost non-existent. I was looking forward to seeing you and Al yesterday. I suppose they just turned you away? I haven’t had a single visitor here so far and only barely been allowed to see my public defender. I’m not allowed to call my lawyer even until next week.

I am in Max Security, full lockdown, solitary confinement. Worse even than the treatment accorded Matt Hale. Most of mail is returned to senders – usually because of their using letters instead of full first and last names in the review in the return address.

  1. I am innocent, for what that is worth in Amerika today. Here is what happened:

My hillbilly handyman stumbled across a stash of silver bullion in one of my outbuildings – then searched and found two others (@ $15,000 & $45,000 total). Knowing I would discover the theft & know it was him. He tried to kill me with two pipe bombs he placed on the cars he knew I drove. They both failed to go off. Cyndi left town with one before he removed it, which led to the discovery of the car bomb on our Mitsubishi SUV.

This guy had offered to be a hit man before, more than once, but I dismissed him as a harmless buffoon. I had told him of the ADL & its hatred for me. This murder-for-hire plot is beyond my hillbilly hitman, so I assume he went to the ADL, which either fabricated tapes that he played for the FBI recorder or produced a mimic of me to make the tapes for the FBI on the spot. Regardless, I have been framed and set-up! BTW, the ADL was quoted extensively in the government’s opening papers in court.

I haven’t heard from my wife or son and fear they have been convinced by the U.S. Attorney Prosecutor of my guilt. I feel totally abandoned. What can you and others do? Ingri, I honestly don’t know. Obviously, this is going to trial. I may well be convicted, which will be the same as a death sentence at this stage of my life. I am So depressed. I never expected them to come after me like this.

You may share this with others, even posting it on UNN and SF (With my address so they can write me – please write me – but tell them to put their full names and addresses [as a clear return address] on the envelopes).

Love, Edgar

[Note: at this time, we do not know his whereabouts. His address is/was – from the return on my envelope from him – Edgar Steele #361857, Spokane County Jail, W. 1100 Mallon, Spokane, Wash. 99260-0320]

The excuse for the post Patriot Act subjugation enforcement is to combat terrorism. Domestic dissent and opposition is the real target of the phony war against terror. Martial law approaches with every attack on the Bill of Rights. You will not find the ACLU coming to the defense of Edgar J. Steele. They are more likely to file an amicus brief for the prosecution. The practices against political prisoners in Castro’s Cuba are part of the FBI playbook. The allegations against Steele hardly rise to the level of national security. In the age of total compliance, the federal junta runs roughshod as an imperial executioner of cherished American principles.

Only a disturbed and irrational government stooge would argue that groups like the Aryan Nations pose a threat to replace the national government. The possibility of a civilian corps brigade with M1A2 Abrams battle tanks rolling down Pennsylvania Avenue and positioned around the Capital that overthrows the beltway regime is absurd.

If you see troops marching in the streets, they will be government mercenaries. The New American clarifies:

In the case of the Posse Comitatus Act, the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act of 2007, signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 17, 2006, amended the law by adding the following language: “The President may employ the armed forces to restore public order in any State of the United States the President determines hinders the execution of laws or deprives the people of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law or opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.”

Accordingly, the present state of the applicable law governing the use of federal troops in matters of domestic law enforcement is the Insurrection Act of 1807.

According to the text of that statute, the national government may mobilize the federal army only if the “constituted authorities of that State are unable, fail, or refuse to protect that right, privilege or immunity, or to give that protection….”

coup d’état is the sudden unconstitutional deposition of a government to replace the deposed government with another body; either civil or military. Serious students of constitutional restraints and natural law know well, that the 911 hysteria enactments violate the valid purpose and the essential role of a lawful government. This putsch was sudden, even within the unending descent into the accelerated nightmare of totalitarian collectivism during the last century.

A compelling case that the stage was set, fifty years ago, took place for a coordinated coup with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Inter bureaucratic rivalry among intelligence agencies and military inter service feuds usually attract the most scrutiny regarding Sub Rosa operations. However, the influence of transnational corporate interests and central bank debt created money fraud, wheels enormous control over the destruction of individual liberty.

On the surface all these diverse factions are competing for ultimate command and control. In the banana republic of The Disunited States of America, the veto force sounds the Shofar ram horn of Zionist supremacy. The coup overthrow of the American Revolution has always been internal. The consistent thread that weaves the ruling class into a diverse alliance of sinister design is their hatred of individual rights and true sovereignty of inherent autonomy.

If there is any doubt that the decaying and collapsing super power called the U.S. is really a banana republic, compare reality with the myth. Wikipedia defines, “A banana republic is a politically unstable country dependent upon limited agriculture (e.g. bananas), and ruled by a small, self-elected, wealthy, and corrupt politico-economic clique.” The only crop that blooms is the terror that comes from a tyrannical government. It inhibits intelligent citizens and breeds submissive sheeple serfs.

The hideous betrayal of lawful rule is paramount in the DoJ’s suit against the State of Arizona’s attempt to enforce established federal immigration law. The tin horn dictator Eric Holder states: “The basis for this was a legal determination by those of us at the Justice Department that the law was inconsistent with the Constitution.” When was the last time past or present potentate regimes adhered to the precepts of the Bill of Rights? Just observe the unconstitutional “diesel therapy” manner that Edgar Steele’s rights are violated. No presumption of innocence if you challenge the State.  Ingri Cassel writes,

“While first confined at the Kootenai County Jail, Edgar, an Idaho resident, is now held in another state – Washington. I went to the Spokane County Jail on Wednesday to visit Edgar Steele. The woman at the desk told me that he is not allowed ANY visitors other than his attorney, he cannot make collect phone calls, and he is in custody of the U.S. Marshal Service. However, when I called the U.S. Marshal office in Spokane, I was told that Edgar is not in their system. I was referred  to the FBI which only was available as a recording. I left a message on a recorder. Another friend went to the Spokane County Jail on Thursday (7-8-10) and was told that he had been moved a half-hour earlier to an undisclosed location. This is beginning to resemble the George Hansen case where Idaho Congressman George Hansen was kept for nearly two years without trial, moved from one federal detention facility to another just ahead of his friends who were frantically trying to locate him so they could obtain his release. His crime?

Allegedly he was being held without trial for errantly filing some congressional disclosure forms. His real crime?  Asking for a congressional investigation of the IRS.”

The coup d’état of the Republic has long ago taken place. The rule by banana republic potentates is the disposition of governance in the Disunited States. You may not like Steele’s politics, but you should defend his right to defend himself and demand real due process of law. The reality is that anyone can be targeted for extinction by a corrupt government. The tree of liberty bears nourishing fruit only when the lifeblood of genuine Patriots are willing to confront tyrants and combat dictatorial government. America does not need another insider coup. It calls out for a second American Revolution.

“There is a frustration too, that at moments when there’s not a coup, when there are not people in the streets, that the country disappears from people’s consciousness.”

Day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year, Americans receive the same depressing and oppressing news from media resources nationwide concerning the corruption in their government.

No one can say that we need to be patient before dealing with the issues at hand, knowing that patience is the weapon that forces deception to reveal itself (1 Corinthians 4:5).  The deception has been revealed and America needs to deal with the crooks. But….

The same old message is given over and over again (Isaiah 59).

The story seems to change only when talking of the corrupt fruit found on the branches of the tree, yet the corrupt trunk, bearing the corrupt fruit, remains the same.  Furthermore, it is allowed to do so.

America, tolerance is the fertilizer that nourishes the tree of corruption.

Instead of laying the “axe to the root of the tree” (Matthew 3:10), the media praises this wicked administration by magnifying and glorifying its high crimes toward the American people (Proverbs 28:4).

In the election cycle of 2012, when Americans were cheering on their most favorite establishment, media propped up and appointed representative option, Mitt Romney (Architect of Obamacare, advocate of homosexual “marriage,” pro-abortion and anti-gun candidate – Look at his actions, Matthew 7:16), to lead America further down the road through the lawless one and his methodologies (2 Thessalonians 2:3-12), which leads to immorality and, at length, self-destruction (Romans 6:23).

Americans, instead of protesting the corrupt establishment, corrupt media, and corrupt “representatives,” simply stand down, give it a pass, only to be deceived on another day (Luke 21:8).  Then they complain about what it is that they tolerate. Sorry to say, it seems that the Americans would “have it so” (Jeremiah 5:31; 8:15).

Furthermore, they are going to wish for the clock to be turned back in order to right the wrongs because they failed to do so when given the opportunity (Psalm 50:22).

Speaking of turning the clock back, what good is history if history is not to be learned from?

Let me give you a few examples as to what history has taught a people that will not listen to the teachings of history.

Germany, during the reign of Adolph Hitler, was a Weimar Republic, a nation to be ruled by law under God. However, the Germans forgot God and His Law, like other countries that wickedly depart from God only to see history repeat itself (Psalm 18:21), and gave their allegiance to a dictator, which less than 3% of the population gave approval. While 97% of the people laughed at Adolph Hitler, the joke was on them (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

While the people in Germany were playing games with the politicians concerning their laws and freedoms, hoping for someone else to do for them what they were unwilling to do for themselves, Hitler and his small regime were hard at work killing off political opposition and overthrowing every facet of the German government which stood in their way. Yet, the people accepted his crimes and his delusional government, which was premised on nothing but lies!

Americans, like the Germans, are doing the same things, and if anyone should know better, it should be the American people (Luke 12:48). To whom much is given, much is required. And be assured America, much is required of you!

“Politicians brought the Nazis to power and started the war. They are the ones who brought about these disgusting crimes.”

– Karl Doenitz, German admiral and would-be fuehrer after Hitler

When warned of Hitler and his crimes against the people with the use of the brown shirts, the SS, fatherland security etc., it was the “good people” that turned a deaf ear to the truth (John 14:6) to expose the lies that were being perpetuated against them by being led to believe that it was only a “Conspiracy theory.” This all came from Hitler’s media propagandist Joseph Goebbels, who was, in fact, brow beating dissenters (2 Timothy 4:3; Jeremiah 11:8-9).

“The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it.” -Dr. Josef Mengele, German SS officer

However, it is the command of God that the Church reprove darkness (Ephesians 5:11; Mark 8:15).

Today’s Church in America, paralleled to that of the German Church under Hitler, is a part of the problem (Isaiah 30).

This quotation stemmed from Martin Niemöller’s lectures during the early postwar period. He believed that Germans, and in particular the leaders of the Protestant churches, had been complicit through their silence in the Nazi imprisonment, persecution, and murder of innocent people.

Martin Niemöller was one of the earliest Germans to talk publicly about the broader complicity in his 1946 book Of Guilt and Hope. Niemöller wrote: “Thus, whenever I chance to meet a Jew known to me before, then, as a Christian, I cannot but tell him: ‘Dear Friend, I stand in front of you, but we cannot get together, for there is guilt between us. I have sinned and my people has sinned against thy people and against thyself.’”

The sad fact of the matter is that America has now put herself in a position where pain and loss will be her teacher! Americans, who have been warned time and time again, have refused to take the Lord’s reproofs, and have failed to understand that prevention is better than cure.  Therefore, she will reap the fruit of her own ways (Proverbs 1:22-31).

Americans have failed to understand that either the righteous will deal lawfully with the wicked or the wicked will deal unlawfully with her!

Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts. -Jeremiah 2:19

Life In The Electronic Concentration Camp: The Surveillance State Is Alive And Well

NSA-binoculars
By: John W. Whitehead, The Rutherford Institute |

“Big Brother in the form of an increasingly powerful government and in an increasingly powerful private sector will pile the records high with reasons why privacy should give way to national security, to law and order […] and the like.” ― William O. Douglas, Supreme Court Justice

Bottle up the champagne, pack away the noisemakers, and toss out the party hats.

There is no cause for celebration.

We have secured no major victories against tyranny.

We have achieved no great feat in pushing back against government overreach.

For all intents and purposes, the National Security Agency has supposedly ceased its bulk collection of metadata from Americans’ phone calls, but read the fine print: nothing is going to change.

The USA Freedom Act, which claimed to put an end to the National Security Agency’s controversial collection of metadata from Americans’ phone calls, was just a placebo pill intended to make us feel better and let the politicians take credit for reforming mass surveillance.

In other words, it was a sham, a sleight-of-hand political gag pulled on a gullible public desperate to believe that we still live in a constitutional republic rather than a down-and-out, out-of-control, corporate-controlled, economically impoverished, corrupt, warring, militarized banana republic.

You cannot restrain the NSA. The beast has outgrown its chains.

You cannot reform the NSA. A government that lies, cheats, steals, sidesteps the law, and then absolves itself of wrongdoing does not voluntarily alter its behavior.

You cannot put an end to the NSA’s “technotyranny.” Presidents, politicians, and court rulings have come and gone over the course of the NSA’s 60-year history, but none of them have managed to shut down the government’s secret surveillance of Americans’ phone calls, emails, text messages, transactions, communications and activities.

Indeed, the government has become an expert in finding ways to sidestep niggling, inconvenient laws aimed at ensuring accountability, bringing about government transparency and protecting citizen privacy.

It has mastered the art of stealth maneuvers and end-runs around the Constitution.

It knows all too well how to hide its nefarious, covert, clandestine activities behind the classified language of national security and terrorism. And when that doesn’t suffice, it obfuscates, complicates, stymies or just plain bamboozles the public into remaining in the dark.

Case in point: the so-called end of the NSA’s metadata collection of Americans’ phone calls.

This, of course, is no end at all.

On any given day, the average American going about his daily business will still be monitored, surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears.

More than a year before politicians attempted to patch up our mortally wounded privacy rights with the legislative bandaid fix that is the USA Freedom Act, researchers at Harvard and Boston University documented secret loopholes that allow the government to bypass Fourth Amendment protections to conduct massive domestic surveillance on U.S. citizens.

It’s extraordinary rendition all over again, only this time it’s surveillance instead of torture being outsourced.

In much the same way that the government moved its torture programs overseas in order to bypass legal prohibitions against doing so on American soil, it is doing the same thing for its surveillance programs. By shifting its data storage, collection and surveillance activities outside of the country, the government is able to bypass constitutional protections against unwarranted searches of Americans’ emails, documents, social networking data, and other cloud-stored data.

Heck, the government doesn’t even need to move all of its programs overseas. It just has to push the data over the border in order to “[circumvent] constitutional and statutory safeguards seeking to protect the privacy of Americans.”

Credit for this particular brainchild goes to the Obama administration, which issued Executive Order 12333 authorizing the collection of Americans’ data from surveillance conducted on foreign soil.

Using this rationale, the government was able to justify hacking into and collecting an estimated 180 million user records from Google and Yahoo data centers every month because the data travels over international fiber-optic cables. The NSA program, dubbed MUSCULAR, is carried out in concert with British intelligence.

No wonder the NSA appeared so unfazed about being forced to shut down its much-publicized metadata program. It had already figured out a way to accomplish the same results (illegally spying on Americans’ communications) without being shackled by the legislative or judicial branches of the government.

Mind you, this metadata collection now being carried out overseas is just a small piece of the surveillance pie. The government and its corporate partners have a veritable arsenal of surveillance programs that will continue to operate largely in secret, carrying out warrantless mass surveillance on hundreds of millions of Americans’ phone calls, emails, text messages and the like, beyond the scrutiny of most of Congress and the taxpayers who are forced to fund its multi-billion dollar secret black ops budget.

The surveillance state is alive and well and kicking privacy to shreds in America.

surveillance

Whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, will still be listening in and tracking your behavior. This doesn’t even begin to touch on the corporate trackers that monitor your purchases, web browsing, Facebook posts and other activities taking place in the cyber sphere.

We are now in a state of transition with the police state shifting into high-gear under the auspices of the surveillance state.

Having already transformed local police into extensions of the military, the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department and the FBI are preparing to turn the nation’s police officers into techno-warriors, complete with iris scanners, body scanners, thermal imaging Doppler radar devices, facial recognition programs, license plate readers, cell phone Stingray devices and so much more.

Add in the fusion centers, city-wide surveillance networks, data clouds conveniently hosted overseas by Amazon and Microsoft, drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras, and biometric databases, and you’ve got the makings of a world in which “privacy” is reserved exclusively for government agencies.

Thus, telephone surveillance by the NSA is the least of our worries.

Even with restrictions on its ability to collect mass quantities of telephone metadata, the government and its various spy agencies, from the NSA to the FBI, can still employ an endless number of methods for carrying out warrantless surveillance on Americans, all of which are far more invasive than the bulk collection program.

As I point out in my new book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, just about every branch of the government—from the Postal Service to the Treasury Department and every agency in between—now has its own surveillance sector, authorized to spy on the American people.

Then there are the fusion and counterterrorism centers that gather all of the data from the smaller government spies—the police, public health officials, transportation, etc.—and make it accessible for all those in power.

And of course that doesn’t even begin to touch on the complicity of the corporate sector, which buys and sells us from cradle to grave, until we have no more data left to mine. Indeed, Facebook, Amazon and Google are among the government’s closest competitors when it comes to carrying out surveillance on Americans, monitoring the content of your emails, tracking your purchases and exploiting your social media posts.

“Few consumers understand what data are being shared, with whom, or how the information is being used,” reports the Los Angeles Times. “Most Americans emit a stream of personal digital exhaust — what they search for, what they buy, who they communicate with, where they are — that is captured and exploited in a largely unregulated fashion.”

It’s not just what we say, where we go and what we buy that is being tracked.

We’re being surveilled right down to our genes, thanks to a potent combination of hardware, software and data collection that scans our biometrics—our faces, irises, voices, genetics, even our gait—runs them through computer programs that can break the data down into unique “identifiers,” and then offers them up to the government and its corporate allies for their respective uses.

All of those internet-connected gadgets we just have to have (Forbes refers to them as “(data) pipelines to our intimate bodily processes”)—the smart watches that can monitor our blood pressure and the smart phones that let us pay for purchases with our fingerprints and iris scans—are setting us up for a brave new world where there is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

For instance, imagine what the NSA could do (and is likely already doing) with voiceprint technology, which has been likened to a fingerprint. Described as “the next frontline in the battle against overweening public surveillance,” the collection of voiceprints is a booming industry for governments and businesses alike. As The Guardian reports, “voice biometrics could be used to pinpoint the location of individuals. There is already discussion about placing voice sensors in public spaces, and [Lee Tien, senior staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation] said that multiple sensors could be triangulated to identify individuals and specify their location within very small areas.”

Suddenly the NSA’s telephone metadata program seems like child’s play compared to what’s coming down the pike.

That, of course, is the point.

The NSA is merely one small part of a shadowy permanent government comprised of unelected bureaucrats who march in lockstep with profit-driven corporations that actually runs Washington, DC, and works to keep us under surveillance and, thus, under control. For example, Google openly works with the NSA, Amazon has built a massive $600 million intelligence database for CIA, and the telecommunications industry is making a fat profit by spying on us for the government.

In other words, Corporate America is making a hefty profit by aiding and abetting the government in its domestic surveillance efforts.

At every turn, we have been handicapped in our quest for transparency, accountability and a representative democracy by an establishment culture of secrecy: secret agencies, secret experiments, secret military bases, secret surveillance, secret budgets, and secret court rulings, all of which exist beyond our reach, operate outside our knowledge, and do not answer to “we the people.”

Now there are still those who insist that they have nothing to hide from the surveillance state and nothing to fear from the police state because they have done nothing wrong.

To those sanctimonious few, secure in their delusions, let this be a warning: the danger posed by the American police state applies equally to all of us—lawbreaker and law abider alike, black and white, rich and poor, liberal and conservative, blue collar and white collar, and any other distinction you’d care to trot out.

In an age of too many laws, too many prisons, too many government spies, and too many corporations eager to make a fast buck at the expense of the American taxpayer, there is no safe place and no watertight alibi. We are all guilty of some transgression or other, and eventually, we will all be made to suffer the same consequences in the electronic concentration camp that surrounds us.

Coming To Grips With Corrupt Government Conspiracies And Maintaining Mental Health

corrupt-govt-must-end

Since the beginning of time, humanity has always been in search of answers and solutions to live by. Humanity has always strived to become better, smarter and achieve more. One basic thing humanity has also strived for which we can all likely relate to in some way is the search for a sense of fulfillment. We want to live in a way that feels complete. That is, in whatever endeavors we pursue we seek a sense of accomplishment, fulfillment, and overall satisfaction. Satisfying this basic sense of fulfillment will then contribute greatly to mental health and a sense of well being which is itself necessary to survive.

In psychology some scholars have proposed and agreed upon a list of so called classification of needs of humans. That is, the most fundamental needs of humanity in order to survive on earth. At the top of that list of needs is mental health (along with physical). It’s right up there with food and shelter. I say this just to give you an idea how important mental health is to the human species as a whole.

With this understanding of the supreme need for humans to feel mentally sane at all times, let us consider the threat that government corruption and conspiratorial behavior is to that same quest for mental sanity. Face it, the threat is real. The thought of your own government harming you or wishing you harm is scary, who can disagree? The fearful proposition of a rogue untrustworthy government has the ability to interfere with your sense of mental sanity thus the brain often looks for the easiest way to defend itself from this threat. It (the brain- the inner sense of self and conscious existence) seeks to protect its own sanity, thus for some of us that means sticking to the truth regardless of what happens. For a few of us, truth is the very thing that makes us feel secure and mentally oriented. This (truth seeking) group I speak of is still (seemingly) the minority. For everyone else, the far greater majority, this tough decision of mental sanity is being decided subconsciously and influenced by the world around us. That’s right, there is a force acting subconsciously in all of us to protect your own sense of well being. These are so called ‘defense mechanisms’ that, as author researcher and mental health expert Dr John Grohol puts it (regarding human basic defense mechanisms):

“In some areas of psychology (especially in psychodynamic theory), psychologists talk about “defense mechanisms,” or manners in which we behave or think in certain ways to better protect or “defend” ourselves. Defense mechanisms are one way of looking at how people distance themselves from a full awareness of unpleasant thoughts, feelings and behaviors.”

So as you can see these mechanisms have a lot to do with pushing away an awareness of something that is perceived as a threat. This pushing away of awareness is thus seen by the majority as the central driving force behind our basic (mental) survival as a species.

Given that this ‘awareness avoidance’ is so central to maintaining of (strictly perceived) mental health, we can see why and how denial and resistance to truth about the new world order and the globalist plans for global enslavement of humanity is necessary for survival for many people. Let’s keep in mind however that all of this is perceived survival and perceived mental health. Anyone who has fully awakened to the globalist plans, and who is mentally free from government propaganda, TV, and mainstream media news knows, nothing could be further from the truth.

The dream state and hypnosis that many of the masses are in currently, is itself a prison not so much a haven of pleasure, sense of completeness and fulfillment. Those living in reinforced states of denial are all (whether they realize it or not) in a mental prison. On the other hand, waking up from the daily lies that we are told is (eventually) a mentally liberating experience. It’s the point past the initial awakening when all the fear and energy culminates and reaches its peak before things begin to even out again. In medicine they call it returning to homeostasis. It’s that moment when things calm down, the reaction stops and everything is moving back towards normal. This is similar to the mental calming, tranquility and peace you will feel when you finally come to grips with the reality around you. I mean really come to grips with it. You see, the fear of what might happen if you woke up (or fear of being labeled a conspiracy theorist) is all engineered and is all perceived.

When you are finally fully awakened to the globalist plans and the full meaning of all of the global events we are seeing, most if not all your fears will go away and will be replaced with awe, understanding, excitement, and energy. Sounds crazy? Not so, consider that even those who are awakened and who still experience anxiety, anger or stress about this attempted takeover of humanity (a perfectly natural thing) feel this way only because they don’t quite see the grand picture yet. Yes, waking up to the truth all around us comes in stages. Kind of like the ‘stages’ of grief acceptance famously outlined by Elizabeth Kubler Ross. Even in Ross’ stages of acceptance of grief, the stages end with acceptance.

This stage of ‘acceptance’ (to borrow Ross’ model) is where truth seekers need to arrive at in terms of coming to grips with the truth. As for those who are still asleep, those that still believe mainstream media news and have not reconciled the truth about the new world order or come to grips with the reality and ramifications of it, these individuals must finally come to the point where they simply accept the reality that governments DO in fact have histories of false flags, authoritarianism, dictatorship and crimes against humanity. As a whole, the State has a long history of violence and murder against the people. This is not conspiracy, it’s history and reality. Likewise the State has a long history of corruption, and to get to that point of mental freedom and stability we must all reconcile the truth at some point and come to grips with the reality of all that is happening.

This deep reconciling of truth to achieve mental stability proves once again that truth really does set you free. Truth in this case will restore your mind and your sense of purpose. Imagine not having to worry about whether ISIS is real or not? Whether the next mass shooting is staged or not. Imagine diagnosing government repeat false flags in real time and not missing a beat within your own private life as you begin to realize that government and mainstream media lies have no effect on you. In this scenario truth will drive you during the day and inspire you at night. It will make your sleep and dreams a lot more meaningful and it will breath new life into your personality, sense of belonging, sense of reason, and sanity. Pursuing truth and being completely free of government-mainstream media lies will make everything seem new again and allow you to look back on your own life and answer questions you never understood before. It will allow you to fast-forward many problem in life and go straight to the solution. Once you see the pattern of life and you realize that governments, and government behaviors (like anything else) are all part of the pattern of life, you will only then begin to see and feel the freedom you’ve been looking for.

When you arrive at this point you will be truly mentally healthy. This simple coming to grips with the greater picture and then slowly learning the power of being free within this new reality is the proper way to go about being mentally healthy and free.

The control system would suggest to you that mental health and freedom comes from you changing who you are, shutting down your free will, then force-fitting yourself into this (already created for you) world of slavery, consumerism, group thinking, and mental pacification with entertainment. This is the exact opposite of what it takes to be mentally free and enlightened.

To be mentally free and enlightened one must first cut ties from the slave master that has you in their mental prison. If this were an actual prison scenario you wouldn’t have trouble understanding why in order to be totally free its so important to first be released from prison. Likewise to be mentally free one must tune out all external thought control systems. One must remove oneself from the influence of mainstream media news. Only then can you move forward with a purpose and a sense of true fulfillment. How?

Once you are fully awakened you will soon recognize government staged false flags in real-time. At this point you will know that the game has just begun. You will begin to understand how much work there is to be done. You will also realize how much we’ve accomplished and why we are slowly winning. You will realize that no one knows how this will end and you haven’t ever seen a movie this good. You will then look at others who rely on entertainment and mainstream media news for their sense of fulfillment and mental health and feel sorry for them. You will realize that as long as the masses don’t wake up they will never know the rush of seeing a staged false flag news coverage in real time.

Like being privileged to a movie screening that no one has seen yet, you will watch as the globalists Cultists show you in plain sight what they are going to do and yet most won’t see the message for what it is as your free mind does. This frustration of seeing people easily fooled will eventually turn into an awe of the process. That’s right, instead of being angry and frustrated that people won’t wake up, you will instead begin to be amazed by the phenomenon (of mass hypnosis) itself. This is the level of true mental freedom I speak  of.  This level of mental freedom will allow you to speak to hypnotized zombies with authority, indignation, confidence, assurance, conviction, and wisdom. This true freedom and mental health will then be seen in you by others. This is the light and the hope that many are searching for. Let your light shine.

What a rush it is to see what others can’t isn’t it? These circumstances that modern day truth seekers find themselves in are historic moments in the making. Harness the energy, the moment, the opportunity and the unique circumstances. Somehow I get the feeling humanity has played out this script many times. Let us be mindful and skillful in the game of life so that we play all the right cards when it counts. Let us know when to be courageous and when to fight back and let this amazing journey play itself out in a way that we can be proud of. Now moving forward you can experience true mental health and above all, you can truly live if and only if you come to grips with reality and let nature take over from there.

He also has a background in psychology and highly recommends that everyone watch a documentary titled The Century of the Self. Bernie has concluded that the way to defeat the New World Order is to truly be the change that you want to see. Manifesting the solution and putting truth into action is the very thing that will defeat the globalists.

Who Turned Out The Lights?

lights out

What’s with this anything goes atmosphere we’ve been swept into when it comes to governmental, economic and societal behavior?

What happened? How did this darkened, backwards world become the “new normal” everyone seems to have accepted, with nary a whimper of complaint? Where did this come from, and in what world are we now living?

It’s very much like being in a well lit room when someone waltzes in and hits the dimmer, which before you know it has been gradually turned down to almost zero visibility.

And apparently the tables were turned when the lights went out.

Our Current Dystopian Nightmare

Governments do as they please without regard for due process of law or public opinion, never mind the consequences; bankers run roughshod over nations and populations with abject impunity, extorting everything they can get and then insist they get bailed out – and are; Wall Street and corporations openly cheat, steal and manipulate with complete abandon and in plain sight with zero accountability.

What happened?

There are no consequences for wrongdoings, no serious protests, logical investigations or punishment – no nothing. All while the whirled around us unravels before our eyes.

Now add to this dystopian nightmare militarized police and swat teams indiscriminately murdering innocent civilians without consequence; the environment getting trashed by geoengineering and radiation while the media and authorities won’t even acknowledge it is happening; and all the while psychopathic fascist war mongers murder millions in their march to conquer the world under the Orwellian banner of democracy and freedom supposedly against their own completely fabricated, amorphous threat of terrorism.

I know you’ve heard all this before but let’s get some context – the makeover of our planet is absolutely shocking when you stand back and see it for what it is.

They Operate in the Shadows

When the lights are out, elements operate “under the cover of darkness.” Ring a bell? Who works under those conditions? The word that comes to mind is “stealth”.

Wikipedia’s synonym entry says this about stealth:

synonyms: furtiveness, secretiveness, secrecy, surreptitiousness, sneakiness, slyness, covertness, stealthiness, clandestineness
“what they could not accomplish by violence or chicanery they would have to accomplish by stealth”.

This is what we’re up against and the nature of the powers that shouldn’t be.

“Cui Bono” (Who Benefits) When the Lights Are Out?

I remember when one unlawful police shooting of a civilian was headlines and didn’t disappear until the culprit got his due. War crimes were top news until addressed. The public wouldn’t have it otherwise. There was a moral backbone, however compromised or manipulated at the time. It was nothing like this surreal place we’re living in now.

Today? Outright torture is publicly justified, entire genocides don’t get reported, crooked bankers and financial scammers run free and collect bonuses, while homicidal police are put on “leave” at best.

Who did this? It’s pretty plain to see if you apply the same old trusty formula – cui bono? Who benefits? Well, the usual suspects who are riding herd on humanity.

Clever little bastards these psychopathic termites are. But we’re on to them.

This list is long how much things have changed for the worse. Of course we the people are being blamed as the problem – our CO2 emissions, bad consumer habits, terrorist like reactionary “Patriotic” sovereign leanings, voicing dissent, and objective journalism –  all are now “bad elements.”

That’s about as topsy-turvy as you can get.

lemmings

The Orwellian World is Here

People are making a mistake when they say we’re “becoming” an Orwellian society or “evolving” into Huxley’s Brave New World. They’re both here. Full on surveillance and meta data tracking and a fully drugged, media mastered society are not what’s coming – they’re here.

In fact, so much is in place humanity is almost beckoning the final New World Order they once dreaded, in a sort of trance like awe-stricken fixation reinforced by what they see continually around them as inescapable, logical conclusions to what they’ve witnessed.

This is very serious stuff. And there’s a reason people won’t face up to it.

As I said 4 years ago in Dazed Lemmings Can’t Bridge The Reality Gap:

Sensory Overload and the Ostrich Effect

As the gap between reality and manipulated public perception grows, it may just be too big a leap for many at this point. Having been dumbed-down and unresponsive for so long, it’s too much for them to take in.

Sad, but again, that’s the projected reality that many unconsciously adopt.

Hey, why wake up when everything’s such a bummer? That’s the underlying mentality. The thing is, this is a conditioned response. Overload and recoil. And it’s been going on a long, long time.

Why? Like the dumbing down effect of not just the manipulated media but fluoride and chemtrails and adulterated food, it eventually suppresses natural responses. When the real alert presents itself, the subject will not be able to react and protect himself.

Why all the dramatic end of the world sci-fi movies? Why the emphasis on violence and horror movies and graphic, destructive wars? Why does the news major on the bad events of the day? Why the combative gladiator sports, emphasis on technology instead of humanity, and mind-numbing crass consumerism and sexualization of society?

This is deliberate social engineering, and that’s the biggie.

It’s all engineered..and that’s the last thing most people want to realize.

And it usually is.

So We’re Here – Now What?

Number one, we still have many freedoms, and we need to “make hay while the sun shines”. The internet is still open, we can still move about relatively freely, and we can still communicate on a variety of levels. If we don’t take full advantage of this and rush the breach with all that is in us we will rue the day some time in the very near future.

Our effect has been enormous in throwing off and delaying many of their plans. Sure they always come up with something else but that requires regrouping and replanning, which clearly results in hasty decisions and botched operations as we’re seeing in the past several years of blown false flag operations, as only one clear example.

It matters. And we need to hit it hard right now. Besides other solutions, I’m convinced there is a large number of so-called insiders who have had enough and want out, and are ready to tell the truth in one form or another. We need to find and encourage them. Flood outlets you think may still have honest reporters, politicians with even an ounce of integrity, corporate and banking stooges in the middle and lower levels who’ve tasted the abusive game and want out – as well as to expose the truth of what’s going.

It’s sure worth a shot. In the meantime make your own noise, stick it to your local officials for their participation in this takeover. Shake the stupor and induced indifference, buck the tide and stand up for what is right like you never have before.

Cowardice is an endemic disease – born, bred and encouraged by the very system we despise and want to throw off. It’s a result of believing the fear propaganda and putting ourselves and our personal security above what is right and best for humanity.

Don’t let it squelch your spirit.

Rise. The hour is late…but not over. We say when it’s over.

And it’ll be them who are over.

Much love, Zen
