Pyongyang claims U.S. is preparing for nuclear war and that President Obama is violating nuclear non-proliferation treaties.

SEOUL, March 23 (UPI) – North Korea’s state-controlled media blasted President Barack Obama for the nuclear weapons policy of the United States and demanded Obama return his 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for violating the U.N. Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.

Yonhap reported North Korea’s newspaper Rodong Sinmun denounced the U.S. president on Monday, stating Obama’s call for the dismantlement of North Korea’s nuclear program, a backhanded move – just a few weeks after Obama observed the 45th anniversary of the U.N. treaty on nuclear weapons on March 6.

North Korea’s state-controlled news outlet claimed the U.S. has 2,900 nuclear warheads in its possession.

“It is an absurd lie, an insult to humanity and a criminal act,” the Rodong Sinmun stated, referring to U.S. censure of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and call for non-proliferation under Obama’s nuclear arms reduction treaty with Russia, signed in April 2010.

Under the treaty’s terms, the number of U.S. and Russian strategic nuclear missiles will be halved by 2021.

North Korea said the current supply of U.S. nuclear weapons violates the U.N. non-proliferation treaty and claimed the U.S. is preparing for a nuclear war.

“It would be best (for Obama) to return his Nobel Peace Prize, which was won on the grounds of absurd lies,” the Rodong Sinmun wrote.

In January, President Obama declared financial sanctions against North Korea in response to the hacking of Sony Pictures, reported Politico. The Obama administration said North Korea was behind the attack.

On March 17, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said an Internet outage in North Korea was a retaliatory strike against Pyongyang for the hacking of Sony Pictures but declined to identify the agency responsible for the retaliation.

This Is What National Suicide Looks Like

mandatory-voting-obama

President Obama has lamented that special interests dominate the world of politics. My first reaction was to laugh out loud. After all, we are listening to the words of a politician/community activist who has done his very best job handing over the country to the communist bankers that are loosely referred to as the New World Order.  This is the same Obama who has supported continued bail-outs of criminal bankers, has overseen and mandated a failing education system (i.e. Common Core), and has mandated a failing health care system that has instituted death panels (e.g. Obamacare age related treatment exclusions). Anytime this President has proposed anything it has either taken money out of our collective pockets or it has served to shorten our longevity, or both! So, you will excuse me when I look upon Obama’s insistence that voting should become mandatory with great suspicion.

President Obama’s answer for the undue influence of the bankers in politics is to FORCE people to vote. Yes, that is right, your President wants voting to become mandatory!  Isn’t this the same President that handed over 18% of our economy to four managed care companies in the form of Obamacare and this served to drive the price up dramatically?  Gee, Mr. President, you force America to take your substandard Obamacare under the threat of fines and going to jail, and now you are telling us that we must vote or face fines or going to jail?  How long will it be until we have elections, with only one choice, of which we are forced to vote in our approval or face fines or go to jail?  This reminds me of the old style Soviet elections where the people had one choice and the citizens voted for it, or they paid fines and went to jail.  I don’t know if I am living closer to communist Cuba or North Korea. By the way, mandatory voting has its roots in communism.

SOON, AMERICANS WILL BE FORCED TO VOTE FOR THEIR OWN DEMISE

Haven’t we learned that when we allow the federal government to mandate concepts like social justice and how we live our lives, it is a prescription for disaster?  Just how good of a job did Goals 2000, No Child Left Behind and now Common Core do with regard to educating the country’s children?  Does anyone else realize that Department of Education is unconstitutional?  How many of these failed and federally mandated initiatives do we have to subject our children to in order to realize that goal is the continued “dumbing down of America“?  Literacy rates, attention spans and citizen awareness are at an all time low.  If you want to improve education, get the Federal government out of the education business.  The following video is a testament to what happens when the government mandates anything such as one of their endless list of failed education programs.

One unmistakable truth about what we are witnessing here, is the establishment of the first American dictatorship in American history. Shadow Stats, John Williams, states that the actual unemployment rate is 23.5% and that there has never been any recovery of the housing market. Meanwhile, we are told that the economy is fine and we should go back to sleep. It is just one failed program after another. We are seeing one failed lie after another. By the way, John Williams will be my guest this Sunday evening on The Common Sense Show as we unravel the economic lies coming out of the Obama administration.

Now we are also seeing financial institutions, like Fannie Mae is on the verge of receiving a bail out with your tax dollars. How is this new and trendy dictatorship working out for us, America? More bailouts with more debt and eventual and total enslavement courtesy of the dictator residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who may never leave office.

Ron Paul warned us over a generation ago that if we were not careful, we would one day wake up and our Constitutional liberties, our traditions along with our country would be gone. My own father said that one day, we would be a country of blithering idiots. Both men were right and that day has arrived!

The Obama Youth Movement And The Seizing Of American Children

Hitler youth 4

There is presently a massive conspiracy designed to separate you from your children and give the government complete control over your children. To put it simply, Health and Human Services (HHS)  and their state level emissary, Children Protective Services (CPS) are engaged in a conspiracy which will culminate in (1) the Agenda 21 designed breakdown of the family; (2) the eradication of any semblance of parental authority over children; and, (3) unbridled and unfettered access to seizing children from the home in unlimited quantities for whatever nefarious purposes which might dictate the volume of child seizures.

The Plot Is International and Begins with the UN

This program emanates from a partnership between various United Nations organizations and ICF, acting on behalf of HHS, CPS and Obamacare (i.e. The Affordable Health Care Act). The evidence in this article, along with the included links, will demonstrate that when Obamacare is fully operational, our families, specifically our children will be living in a Hitler Youth Movement hellish nightmare in which the state owns and can seize your children.

After reviewing HHS, CPS and UN documents. What is being presently reported in the alternative media is merely the tip of the iceberg with regard to HHS’ intentions toward the ultimate outcome of the children in this country. After reviewing the documents, there is no doubt that Obama is representing international interests which will seek to remove as many children as possible from the homes of their parents in the spirit of the Hitler Youth Movement.

But first let me quickly review the recent revelations of the HHS/CPS/Obamacare intention to conduct what I have dubbed as “home invasion interventions.”

Obamacare Home Invasions and Interventions

According to a previously unreported Obamacare regulation, that has managed to escape “scrutiny” from the mainstream media, millions of American families will be targeted for home invasion by the forces of the Federal government in the name of preventing parental neglect resulting in disabilities in their children. And the Fourth Amendment be damned, as of this past January 1, 2014, Federal officials may enter your home without a warrant in order to “intervene” for the purpose of saving “high risk” children.

Obamacare’s Definition of High Risk

The exposure of the extreme and intrusive nature of Obamacare through home invasion visits is finally seeing the light of day in the alternative media. However, this exposure is grossly understated. As a starting point, I will briefly review what is making the rounds in the alternative media. According to Human Health Services, your family is eligible for this Hitler style for “intervention” in the following situations:

1. Families where mom is not yet 21.

2. Families where someone is a tobacco user.

3. Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.

4. Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States. 

5. Although this is not being widely reported, homeschoolers and their families will be targeted for “interventions” as will be families who object to having their children take vaccines.  

There is no question that all of the above categories, warrants a home invasion followed by “remediation.”  The visits are not being conducted by HHS officials as has been reported in several publications. The home invasion visits are being conducted by CPS on behalf of HHS.

HHS has designed a detailed 110 page policy manual which focuses on the criteria constituting child neglect. This policy manual which is the guide created by HHS for CPS’ home intervention visits makes the above criteria, presently being reported in the alternative media, look tame by comparison.

HHS, CPS and the Criminalization of Parenthood

In the 110 page HHS/CPS manual, the variables which comprise child neglect, worthy of government intervention is frightening beyond any words I can find to express their undisguised intentions. This entire document which will serve as the field manual by CPS in support of Obamacare undermines parental authority to a level that is beyond belief.

“We are from HHS and we are here to help you.”

How many of you were ever grounded by your parents and not permitted to play outside with your friends? This is now illegal under the HHS/CPS policy manual. They label the treatment as neglect by isolation. There are no time frames set forth which constitutes isolation and it is left to the field representative. This obviously erodes parental discipline.

If your child is judged to be underachieving in school, this is referred to as educational neglect and is worthy of governmental intervention. Further, if your child is absent for five days in any one month from school, the same allegation would be made against the parent.

If your child has ADD or ADHD, you could be accused of neglect because the document details how this can be somehow caused by poor nutrition, although the variables associated with the cause are not specified.

The document goes out of its way to specify that poverty and neglect are not inextricably linked. Then the document goes out of its way to link poverty with child neglect. Read between the lines America. As we already are aware, many poor children who go missing from scandals such as Jerry Sandusky’s Second Mile Foundation, the infamous Franklin Scandal and last year’s CPS scandal with the 78 missing wards of the state in Oklahoma, frequently end up being put into child sex trafficking rings operated and funded by such notables as DynCorps and HSBC bank.

Of course, no Obama inspired program would be complete without an attack upon the Second Amendment. Obamacare is no exception as one of the criteria for child neglect  are parents who are also guns.

The presence of alcohol in the home is a trigger for an allegation of neglect and subsequent “intervention.” Of course, alcoholic parents can present a clear and present danger to a child’s well-being. However, in the policy manual the conditions for concern over alcohol do not detail the amount and percentage of the family resources involved necessary to obtain alcohol. In other words, one can of beer in the home can be considered to constitute child neglect by the Obamacare CPS fieldworker.

If your child has engages in any type of illicit or criminal behavior, your family is at risk. Raise your hands if you ever smoked pot before the age of 18, or drank as a teen, or engaged in any kind of sexual activity before the age of 18, ever stayed out past curfew, or ever shoplifted? IF your children ever engages in these and a multitude of other transgressions, you are in danger of losing your children. This also means that if your child is ever involved in a fight in school or is assigned detention, the school will be required to report the behavior to the HHS/CPS and you can expect to have a “home invasion intervention” session with your friendly Obamacare CPS fieldworker.

If you are ever late picking up your child from daycare or from school aftercare, you will now be reported to CPS.

If you have ever been depressed or have been treated for any mental disorder (e.g. PTSD, anxiety, etc.), you are at risk for losing your children.

Even illegal immigrant families are not immune from this insanity. Children are judged by the field worker to not be fully acculturated, do not properly speak the language, exhibits signs of being homesick and is judged to have not formed an unspecified number of friends and formed a cohesive social network, allegations of neglect can be made.

I would invite the reader to spend some time reviewing the document which will be serving as the policy manual for the forced home inspections. Please note that when the reader gets beyond the flowery language and professed concern for children, that the language is written so broadly that virtually any human condition, any family circumstance or child’s behavior can be interpreted as child neglect. There is literally no end to the tyranny that awaits the art of parenting in the present day.

The important thing to note is the use of language by this manual. Parents who are deemed by an Obamacare CPS field worker, operating under the HHS flag, to be neglectful towards their children are considered to have created “disabilities” within their children. As the reader will soon discover, the use of the term “disabilities” is key to understanding how far this administration is willing to go to seize children for some nefarious purpose.

Sadly, this is still only the beginning. There is far more to be concerned about beginning with who is ultimately responsible for these outrages.

Meet the Creators of the State Sponsored Child Kidnapping Rings

The primary author for this insane manual for HHS/CPS and their designed home invasion interventions is Diane DePanfilis, Ph.D., M.S.W.  She is the Associate Dean for. Research and an Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of Maryland. More importantly she is a co-editor of the Handbook on Child Protection Practice. In other words, DePanfills has been a major player in the unconstitutional practices we see in CPS in all 50 states. As if this is not concerning enough, all of the other contributing authors have their professional origins and affiliations with the same organization.

Lindsay Ritter Taylor fromCaliber, an ICF International Company

Matthew Shuman, M.S.W, A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company

Jean  Strohl,  A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company,

Jeannie Newman, M.S.W,M.I.B.S., A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company

It was at this point, I smelled a rat. We have the primary author being a CPS author designed to teach their field operatives on the methods of how to abuse parents and undermine parental authority. And all of the contributing authors come from the exact same corporation, ICF. At this point, it is prudent to ask the question, who is ICF?

ICF Is the Biggest Player That You Have Never Heard Of

ICF International partners with government and commercial clients to deliver consulting services and technology solutions in climate change, energy, environment, transportation, social programs, defense, and homeland security markets. In my mind, this established ICF as a major player in the introduction and implementation of the globalist agenda by designing matching Federal programs. And as it turned out they are a major player in Obamacare through their subsidiary acquisition, Caliber Associates.

Caliber is an “established leader in providing research, consulting, and innovation in human services and human resource issues.” ICF acquired Caliber in 2005 in order “to serve HHS, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of Education.”  Caliber Associates and their four contributing authors to the HHS/CPS field manual, which will be used to enforce child welfare regulations, was the undeniable link to Obamacare through this field manual. But as I discovered, the rabbit hole went even deeper.

After I found the co-authors of the HHS/CPS policy manual which will guide these forced home inspections, I smelled the distinct odor of the United Nations and Agenda 21 and sure enough, this was exactly what I found.

The United Nations and Obamacare

At times, I feel that I have the globalist playbook and I am able to often anticipate their next move. Please allow me to briefly illustrate how the globalists have operated in another area, education, and then draw the parallel to how the UN is deeply involved in Obamacare.

The Common Core Curriculum, which is sweeping the nation’s education system, was the product of “Education for All.”  Education for All comes from the United Nations education arm, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Common Core went from UNESCO to the National Governors Association who in turn farmed out the development of the details to various NGO’s which in turn sent the standards to each state for implementation. This is the standard model that the globalists follow when implementing a controversial program and Obamacare follows a similar pattern as did Common Core.

There is no doubt that the provisions of allegedly protecting children in Obamacare, originated with the United Nations

Why do they want our kids?

In the United Nations document entitled, Human Rights, Persons with Disabilities, ICF and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Training toolkit), implementation for programs designed to help people, children in particular, with disabilities, came from the World Health Organization (WHO) [Page  36], UNESCO [Page 37], the International Labour Organization (ILO) [Page 36] and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)[Page 38]. As one can see from the title, ICF and the UN have partnered to protect people/children with disabilities.

Conclusion

Please remember that earlier in the article, I made the point that the HHS/CPS field manual referred to neglected children as children who have disabilities. It is quite apparent that any of the conditions listed in the HHS/CPS manual will produce children who have disabilities. Under this guise, I can draw no other conclusion than Obamacare is ultimately state sponsored child slavery.

Under Obamacare, virtually every aspect of parenting is criminalized. Any child can be considered to have a disability for which the state is the only legitimate treatment source. When Obama was first running for President in 2008, he promised to build a civilian security force that “was just as strong, just as well-funded as our military.” And when one combines this conspiracy with Obama’s Executive Order 13603 which calls for a mandatory civilian conscription to complement a coming military draft, it is clear that this lunatic is planning to enslave a large segment of the population and he will obtain many of his conscripts from Obamacare. And many of you who are familiar with Agenda 21 and their expressed views toward parental rights and the rights of children, do not need me to make connect the dots, you already have done so.

Unfortunately, there are no reliable statistics which will tell the American public how many of its children have been abducted under these circumstances because the abduction statistics show up as a CPS intervention. One thing we can be sure of is that your parental rights are gone as you are merely the temporary caregiver for the state when it comes to who has authority over your children.

My advice to all parents, don’t answer the door when you see the lady ringing your doorbell.

I cannot see any way out of this dilemma than to resist through the use of force. The Obamacare goons will NOT gain entry into my home while I am still breathing. I predict that HHS/CPS will soon be armed because they will, and should, meet massive resistance from the citizens.

America, we must resist this heinous tyranny with every means at our disposal. 

Will you protect your children?

While Obama Guts The U.S. Military, Russia Prepares For War

obama_putin

The Russian military and the U.S. military are going in two very different directions.  Military spending in Russia is increasing by a whopping 33 percent this year alone, and the Russians are feverishly preparing as if a major war with the United States is inevitable.  But despite the fact that the conflict in Ukraine has raised tensions with Russia to Cold War levels, the Obama administration is still acting as if we were living in a “post-Cold War” era.  Even while the Russians are arming themselves to the teeth, the U.S. military is being gutted.  In fact, the U.S. Army is in the process of being cut down to the smallest size that we have seen since the end of World War II, and the U.S. Navy is already the smallest that it has been since World War I.  There is very little political debate about this gutting of our military at the moment, but someday we may look back and bitterly regret not being more prepared.

No matter what your view of U.S. foreign policy is, we should all be able to agree that the U.S. Constitution mandates that it is the job of the federal government to protect this nation.  Sadly, according to one recent report the cutbacks that are happening right now have left the U.S. military only “marginally able” to defend this country…

The US military has become so depleted by cuts that it has been left only ‘marginally able’ to defend the nation.

Decreases in the number of soldiers and naval ships have led to armed forces falling short of President Obama’s national security strategy, a report by The Heritage Foundation claimed.

Yes, we are spending far more on our military than anyone else on the planet is.  But a tremendous amount of that is pure waste.

When it comes to the things that really matter for national defense, corners are being cut.  For example, as I mentioned above, the U.S. Army is in the process of being reduced to the smallest size that it has been since World War II

The Quadrennial Defense Review announced last year that the Army would be cut from 570,000 soldiers to 440,000 – the fewest since World War II.

The Army historically commits 21 brigade combat teams to one war but would struggle to do this and leave reserves if there were two simultaneous conflicts, the report said.

And according to the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Navy is already the smallest that is has been since World War I…

With the U.S. Navy arguably at its smallest since 1917, we don’t have many ships that are actually at sea. Only 35% of the Navy’s entire fleet is deployed, fewer than 100 ships.

But that is not all.  According to Stars and Stripes, the size of the U.S. Air Force is going to shrink by about 500 planes over the next five years…

The Air Force plans to cut nearly 500 planes from its inventory over the next five years if the Defense Department’s Fiscal 2015 budget request is approved by Congress, the service announced Monday.

The reductions — which would affect the active duty, Guard and Reserve — would be implemented in 25 states and the District of Columbia, according to a diagram provided by the Air Force. Only 47 planes would be eliminated overseas at a time when officials are emphasizing the importance of maintaining a strong forward presence to deter adversaries and respond quickly to crises.

For much more on how the U.S. military is being gutted, please see my previous article entitled “The Incredible Shrinking U.S. Military“.

At the same time all of this is going on, Russia is acting as if they knew that World War III was right around the corner.

According to CNN, the Russians plan to spend more than 20 trillion rubles to modernize their military by the year 2025…

Russia has begun investing heavily in upgrades to its military capabilities. President Vladimir Putin plans to spend more than 20 trillion rubles ($700 billion) bringing equipment up to date by 2025.

The modernization program is continuing despite an economic crisis that has already forced Russia to adopt an austerity budget for next year.

Even while the U.S. military is shrinking, the Russian military is getting larger.  The following infographic was published by TASS, and it shows some of the new equipment that the Russian military will be receiving by the end of this year…

TASS-Infographic-460x299

In addition, the Moscow Times is reporting that the Russian navy will be getting 50 new vessels in 2015.

So why are the Russians conducting such a massive military buildup?

Certainly the civil war in Ukraine is on their minds.  If there was a civil war up in Canada, the U.S. government would definitely be freaking out.  So it is understandable that the Russians are deeply concerned about what is happening to their neighbor.

But this military buildup by the Russians suggests that there is something more going on.

And I think that we can get a clue by looking at how the Russian military has been behaving.

For instance, the Russian air force recently conducted a drill which simulated an attack on NATO warships in the Black Sea

Russian fighter jets are practicing attacking NATO ships in the Black Sea in another dramatic sign that tensions over Ukraine continue to build despite a fragile ceasefire agreed last month.

“Russia’s newest Su-30 fighter jets and Su-24 attack bombers are using two NATO ships in the Black Sea to practice penetrating anti-air systems,” reports Sputnik, citing a source at the Sevastopol naval base.

Asserting that the NATO ships are conducting drills based around “repelling air attacks,” Moscow is taking the opportunity to practice “maneuvering and conducting aerial reconnaissance” outside the range of the ships in order to “practice attack scenarios”.

In addition, Russian strategic bombers have been making increasingly aggressive movements in recent months.  The following is from an article that described an incident in which two Tu-95 bombers buzzed Norwegian airspace

But on January 28 two more Tu-95 bombers, escorted by tankers and Russia’s most advanced MiG-31 fighter jets, showed up off the coast. One of them was carrying “a nuclear payload,” according to the London Sunday Express, which cited intercepted radio traffic. And last fall, a Russian Tu-22 supersonic bomber skirting Norway’s northern airspace was photographed carrying a cruise missile in launching position, according to the Barents Observer blog. Similar examples abound.

Adding to the potential for an unintended catastrophe, Russian warplanes typically lift off without filing a flight plan and cruise the busy commercial flight lanes with their transponders off, riling airline and NATO pilots alike. In recent months Russian warplanes have been engaging in Top Gun–style stunts far from home, popping up unannounced aside an SAS airliner on a flight between Copenhagen, Denmark, and Oslo and buzzing a Norwegian F-16 pilot.

And in the Pacific, two Tu-95 bombers recently buzzed Guam

Russian strategic bombers conducted a third circumnavigation of the U.S. Pacific island of Guam last week as other bombers flew close to Alaska and Europe, defense officials said.

Two Tu-95 Bear H bombers made the flight around Guam, a key U.S. military hub in the western Pacific, on Dec. 13. No U.S. interceptor jets were dispatched to shadow the bombers.

One of the reasons this is done is to test our defenses.

They want to see how we would respond if it was the real thing.

In a future war with Russia, the key to winning will probably be to strike first.  The Russians know this, and so they are putting a special emphasis on modernizing their strategic nuclear forces

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on December 19 that the Russian strategic nuclear forces will receive more than 50 ICBMs in 2015. Putin also reaffirmed plans to modernize the fleet of Russian strategic bombers and nuclear-powered submarines.

According to the new Russian military doctrine signed by Putin Friday, Moscow reserves the right to use nuclear weapons in response to the use of nuclear weapons or any other types of weapons of mass destruction against Russia or its allies, as well as in the case of an attack with conventional weaponry that threatens the very existence of the state.

It is being reported that Russian Strategic Missile Forces are planning to conduct more than 100 drills in 2015.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration is treating the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal as if it was an unwanted leftover from an era that is long gone.

I have written much more about this in the past, and I will not repeat all of it here.  If you would like to dig even deeper into all of this, please see my previous article entitled “10 Signs That Russia Is Preparing To Fight (And Win) A Nuclear War With The United States“.

To most Americans, a war with Russia is not even a remote possibility.

But there is a much, much different mindset inside Russia these days.

During one recent military parade, a large missile was paraded through the streets with a message to Barack Obama written on the side.  Roughly translated, the message says “to be personally delivered to Obama”…

The Russians are preparing for war.

The United States is not.

So who is right and who is wrong?

Obama Immigration Fix: 4M Illegals Who Never Paid U.S. Tax, Get 3 Years Of Tax Refunds

Illegal-Immigrants

You have to admit it sounds crazy. The normal rule is that the IRS can audit for three years, so you can usually go back three years to amend your return or claim a credit you forgot. What if you never had any income or never filed a return? Just wait. Since an illegal immigrant under President Obama’s executive action can now get a Social Security number, the immigrant road map is clear.

First, get the Social, then claim the Earned Income Tax Credit for the three open tax years, and Voila! IRS sends you three years of tax refunds. Welcome to America! No matter that you never paid taxes, never filed a return, worked off the books, etc. All sins forgiven. And the IRS says this is the way the Earned Income Tax Credit works. Recall that the Earned Income Tax Credit—EITC to those in the tax biz—is the one that is responsible for billions in fraudulent refunds.

Russia Accusses America Of Undermining Peace Process In Ukraine

ukraine

Russia accused the United States of trying to undermine the peace process in Ukraine by the decision of US President Barack Obama to extend for one year the economic sanctions against Moscow and the rebels in the eastern Ukrainian regions.

“We have just signed a peaceful settlement to solve the grave crisis in Ukraine, and Washington, who encouraged last year’s coup in Kiev, is again trying to destabilize the situation,” said in a statement the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Alexandr Lukaséhvich.

He added that now, when there is a real possibility that a ceasefire will work, the Obama Administration has issued new threats by announcing the extension of sanctions previously adopted and imposing new ones agains tthe Donetsk and Lugansk.

“Is it not an attempt to destroy the modest beginnings of trust between them and the Ukrainian authorities, to undermine and frustrate the peace process?,” asked the spokesman.

Lukashevich stressed that the same refers to the “promises of massive US arms supplies to Ukraine, that will only instigate revenge plans from Kiev”.

“We would like the United States to ponder the consequences of their decisions and actions once and for all. Furthermore, when no penalty will change the position of Russia. It is time for Washington to understand this,” the spokesman concluded.

Shock Report! White House Immigration Details Leaked: Obama Policies Will Create A “Country Within A Country” (VIDEO)

obama illegal immigration
By: Mac Slavo | SHTFplan.com -

The White House has finally unveiled it’s strategy with illegal immigration and according to well-known radio host Mark Levin it is in its advanced stages after many years of scheming and implementation. In the following interview Levin is joined by Sue Payne, a radio host in Baltimore, Maryland, who happened to be invited to a series of conference calls with Obama administration officials.

What you are about to hear is shocking.

As noted by Sue Payne, the administration is, in effect, establishing a new country within the borders of the United States, something confirmed by a high-level Obama administration operative on the conference call.

 (Watch at Youtube)

In reality what he did was sign a memorandum that created the Task Force on New Americans which is going to  implement his amnesty mill for the 5 million illegals, which I believe is going to be more than that… and on these conference calls it became clear he was looking at 13 to 15 million to give protection and move them on to citizenship.

What became clear is that once these illegals come out of the shadows so to speak, their communities that they’re living in now are going to be re-designated as “receiving communities.” And what this task force is designed to do is to create a welcoming feeling among these receiving communities to bring in these immigrants…bring them out in the open… and the receiving communities will then morph into what was established as an emerging immigrant community.

To do that, what they said was that we need to start looking at the immigrant as a seedling and for the seedling to grow the seedling needs to be in fertile soil…

….

Eventually the seedlings will take over the host… and the immigrants will come out of the shadows… and what I got from the meetings is that they would be pushing the citizens into the shadows… they would be taking over the country… In fact, one of the members of the task force actually said that we would be developing a “country within a country.”

The White House spokesman said that immigrants need to be aware of the benefits that they are entitled to… which led to another comment saying that this group Obama’s going to give amnesty to would not be interested in assimilating… they would navigate but not assimilate.

There were also a couple of other things that were very disturbing… one was that as soon as this decision is pushed through these immigrants need to be treated as refugees… they need to be given cash… they need medical care… they need to use credit cards to pay for any documents that they need… And also, we need to convince state and local governments to cut these people no interest loans with tax payer dollars so they can then then pay for their papers… as if we were funding our own destruction here.

The Executive Orders signed by President Obama last year are now coming to fruition. Millions of people who have illegally entered the United States will be given amnesty. New immigrants will be sent to “receiving communities” as explained byBefore It’s News:

The “new Americans” are considered “seedlings” by the White House and the “receiving communities” are the “fertile ground” to nurture them, according to comments made during the meetings.

At the meetings, it was said that “immigrants need to be aware of benefits they are entitled to”.

Obama’s plan is to treat the “new Americans” as refugees as soon as amnesty is pushed through. Refugees are given an allowance, housing, food, medical care, education, and an immediate pathway to citizenship.

And where will all the money come from to feed, house, educate and provide health care?

The answer is simple. It will come from you and if President Obama has his way it will be forced upon you without congressional approval, as highlighted by Infowars just two days ago:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday thatPresident Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unitlateral executive action.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest continued. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

Via Townhall

The pieces of the puzzle have now revealed the bigger picture and the ultimate goals of the Obama administration.

Moreover, it is clear that President Obama has completely trashed the founding document of the United States. First by ignoring his Constitutional duty to enforce the laws of the land by securing our borders. And second, by mandating forced taxation through executive actions that will further impoverish an already struggling American citizenry.

Obama-Netanyahu ”Fallout” Is Theater – Planned In 2009

obama netanyahu 2
By: Tony Cartalucci | Land Destroyer Report -

In a 2009 US policy paper published by the corporate-financier funded Brookings Institution, it was made clear that the US was determined to provoke Iran into a conflict and effect regime change at any cost – up to and including an outright military invasion and occupation of Iran with US troops.

However, before it came to that, the Brookings Institution’s policymakers explored other options including fomenting US-backed political unrest coupled with covert, violent force, the use of US State Department listed foreign terrorist organizations to carry out assassinations and attacks within Iran, and limited airstrikes carried out by either the US or Israel, or both.

In retrospect, 6 years on, all of these tricks have not only been attempted to one degree or another in Iran, but have been demonstrably employed in neighboring Syria to diminish its strength – which according to Brookings – is a necessary prerequisite before waging war on Iran.

And of particular interest – considering what appears to be a growing diplomatic row between the United States and Israel – is just how precisely the US planned to covertly back what would be made to appear as a “unilateral” Israeli first strike on Iran – an attack that appears to be in the process of being justified through a carefully orchestrated propaganda campaign now unfolding.

From the Mouths of US Policymakers Themselves 

The Brookings Institution’s 2009 policy paper titled, “Which Path to Persia? Options for a New American Strategy Toward Iran,” makes clear that negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program is merely theater, and that it will be used to give the world the impression that the United States explored all possible “peaceful” options before resorting to violent regime change.  The report states specifically that:

…any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context— both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it. The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however, grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer—one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down. Under those circumstances, the United States (or Israel) could portray its operations as taken in sorrow, not anger, and at least some in the international community would conclude that the Iranians “brought it on themselves” by refusing a very good deal.

Of course, Iran – as admitted to by Brookings themselves – is not governed by irrational leadership, and would not turn down a genuinely “superb offer.” The Brookings Institution admits openly that the US pursues a dual track foreign policy – one for public consumption (making “superb offers”) and another aimed at ensuring Iran looks as unreasonable as possible.

At one point in the policy paper, Brookings would state:

The truth is that these all would be challenging cases to make. For that reason, it would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be. Of course, it would be very difficult for the United States to goad Iran into such a provocation without the rest of the world recognizing this game, which would then undermine it. (One method that would have some possibility of success would be to ratchet up covert regime change efforts in the hope that Tehran would retaliate overtly, or even semi-overtly, which could then be portrayed as an unprovoked act of Iranian aggression.)

Brookings Which Path to Persia 2010 Cover
Here, Brookings policymakers openly conspire to undermine global peace by “goading” another nation into a war it neither wants nor will benefit from. Provoking a nation that poses no threat to the national security of the United States is a clear violation of international law – with the Brookings paper serving as a literal signed confession.

Yet despite this open admission, conspiring against world peace, what is of more interest is the United States’ plans to disavow any responsibility for an attack it would use its regional proxy, Israel, to carry out in its place. It states specifically under a chapter titled, “Allowing or Encouraging an Israeli Military Strike,” that:

…the most salient advantage this option has over that of an American air campaign is the possibility that Israel alone would be blamed for the attack. If this proves true, then the United States might not have to deal with Iranian retaliation or the diplomatic backlash that would accompany an American military operation against Iran. It could allow Washington to have its cake (delay Iran’s acquisition of a nuclear weapon) and eat it, too (avoid undermining many other U.S. regional diplomatic initiatives).

To no one’s surprise the British Daily Mail now reports in an article titled, “President Obama threatened to shoot down Israeli jets if they attacked Iranian nuclear facilities last year, claim sources,” that:

President Obama is alleged to have stopped an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets, according to reports to emerge from the Middle East at the weekend

The threat from the U.S. forced Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to abort a planned attack on Iraq, reported Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida.

Netanyahu will be in Washington for an address to Congress on Tuesday aimed squarely at derailing Obama’s cherished bid for a diplomatic deal with Tehran.

Here, the Daily Mail repeats a growing narrative that dovetails neatly into long-standing US foreign policy described by the Brookings Institution’s report in 2009 – down to the letter. In fact, the prospect of “shooting down” Israeli planes was discussed as one of many props used in this geopolitical theater.

The US, as prescribed by Brookings, is portrayed as desperately trying to hammer out an almost unreasonably accommodation with Iran, while “mad dog” Israel seeks to unilaterally attack Iran – thus giving the US the plausible deniability it openly claimed it would disingenuously attempt to create ahead of any Israeli attack on Iran. It should be noted that the summation of Israel’s military might is a result long, extensive, and continuous US military support meaning that Israeli military operation is even possible without it.

obama netanyahu
Also of interest is Israel’s habitual, belligerent, serial acts of inhumanity against both its own people and the Palestinians whose land Tel Aviv has seized and continues to occupy. The nature of these acts is not one of self-preservation, but of intentional provocation – creating predictable political divides across the West easily manipulated particularly at times like these where a “regrettable” attack made upon Iran, a nation the West has thus far failed to topple with terrorism, US-backed sedition, sanctions, and covert provocations, is now in the cards.

It is also clear that the 2009 “Which Path to Persia?” policy paper still represents a vivid window into a much deeper and well-entrenched doctrine still to this day being used to reorder the Middle East into alignment with Western special interests.  It is a signed confession of a now evident conspiracy against global peace and stability. It should be read, in full, before the United Nations Security Council  before those who wrote it and the corporate-financier interests who sponsored it are brought to international justice.

Anything less proves that the United States and its regional proxies, not Iran, are the rogue states, working against global peace and stability, with many standing examples already of their atrocities on display, and more – apparently – still to come.

Gun Control Through Banning Bullets

obama bans ar15 bullets

The concept of banning lead was floated before, but this latest effort to impose back door gun control has all the marking of a tin horn dictator stripping the peasants of any means of resistance. Drop the pretense. All you need to know is WHY IS GOVERNMENT STOCKPILING GUNS, AMMO?, while you are being told you are not allowed to have your own horde.  How you answer this question, reveals much about your attitude towards government, and level of concern for protecting yourself from tyrannical edits. It is startling just how much of the population will accept de facto gun control for any trumped up scheme to impose further governmental mastery.

SCOPE reports on the recent announcement on M855 ammunition.

On 13 February 2015, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF) released a document [PDF ] that proposed the reclassification of “5.56mm constituent projectiles of SS109 and M855 cartridges” from the category of “primarily used for sporting purposes” to that of “armor piercing ammunition.” The 17-page document was titled

“ATF FRAMEWORK FOR DETERMINING WHETHER CERTAIN PROJECTILES ARE ‘PRIMARILY INTENDED FOR SPORTING PURPOSES’ WITHIN THE MEANING OF 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(C)” and uploaded to ATF.gov , in part to enable interested parties to review it and submit comments before 16 March 2015. The proposal cited the Law Enforcement Officers Protection Act of 1986 (P.L. 99-408, known as “LEOPA”) and referenced discussions with law enforcement agencies across the country about whether “green tip” ammunition could reasonably be construed an exempt form of sporting ammo under the 1986 guidelines. The publicly available document noted that handguns made to employ the potentially affected ammunition were not available to civilians at the time the exemption was initially granted, and that the ammo type in question did not appear to meet the standard for a sporting purpose exemption:

Applying the sporting purposes framework set-forth above, the 5.56mm projectile that ATF exempted in 1986 does not qualify for an exemption because that projectile when loaded into SS109 and M855 cartridges may be used in a handgun other than a single-shot handgun. Specifically, 5.56mm projectiles loaded into the SS109 and M855 cartridges are commonly used Framework for Deciding Sporting Purpose Ammunition pursuant to 18 USC 921(a) in both “AR-type” rifles and “AR-type” handguns. The AR platform is the semi-automatic version of the M16 machinegun originally designed for and used by the military. The AR-based handguns and rifles utilize the same magazines and share identical receivers. These AR-type handguns were not commercially available when the armor piercing ammunition exemption was granted in 1986. To ensure consistency, upon final implementation of the sporting purpose framework outlined above, ATF must withdraw the exemptions for 5.56 mm “green tip” ammunition, including both the SS109 and M855 cartridges.

The  video BATF Ammo Ban Violates Federal Law As Well As The Constitution and Infowars article provides the legal definition: AR-15 AMMO NOT “ARMOR PIERCING” ACCORDING TO LAW, BUT ATF BANNING IT ANYWAY, both explains the dubious methods being used to circumvent the 2nd Amendment.

To be considered “armor piercing” under 18 U.S.C. 921 (a)(17)(B) , a bullet must have an entirely metal core or have a jacket weighting more than 25% of its weight, which wouldn’t include M855 rounds because their bullets are partly lead .

The definition in full:

(17)

(A) The term “ammunition” means ammunition or cartridge cases, primers, bullets, or propellent powder designed for use in any firearm.

(B) The term “armor piercing ammunition” means- (i) a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely (excluding the presence of traces of other substances) from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium; or (ii) a full jacketed projectile larger than .22 caliber designed and intended for use in a handgun and whose jacket has a weight of more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile.

(C) The term “armor piercing ammunition” does not include shotgun shot required by Federal or State environmental or game regulations for hunting purposes, a frangible projectile designed for target shooting, a projectile which the Attorney General finds is primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes, or any other projectile or projectile core which the Attorney General finds is intended to be used for industrial purposes, including a charge used in an oil and gas well perforating device.

Now all this legal mumbo jumbo may seem archaic to anyone other than gun enthusiasts, but in fact allowing the government to banish the business end of shells, because the government fears such bullets might be pointed at them, is an admission of despotic panic.

Governments have little need to feel apprehension from citizens, when their conduct is measured by legal and ethical standards. Just ask, what in the world is this contrived necessity to undertake punitive and restrictive measures to strip the public of their legitimate right for self-defense, really all about?

If there is any doubt how the people are responding, just examine the trend in gun and especially further ammo sales.

Gun sales hit new record, ammo boom to follow

“If ammunition does become the focus for gun owners, that could become another hot-button topic.

Last year, the Homeland Security Department had to explain to Congress its contracts to buy up to 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.

Some gun owners believed the department was trying to crowd out private consumers in the ammunition market, but federal officials said their purchases amounted to a tiny fraction of the ammunition produced every year.”

Obviously, buying up the market is too slow a way to crowd out the public. With no constrains in the last two years of the Obama administration, what is one more show of contempt for the rule of law? Yet, proponents of an ammunition free zone cheer last year’s UN Arms Trade Treaty ATT as another component in the efforts to “piecemeal enactment of costly and increasingly restrictive controls on ammunition, private sales and transfers, firearms parts, registration, etc.”

Yes, Obama’s bureaucrats are walking lock step in line with the global objective of having non elites stripped of their armor. If .223 ammo is slated for a meltdown, what will be next?

The Global Gulag essay, Guns, Guts and Goons foretells the dilemma.

“Gun ownership in America is the primary reason why the internationalists fear the wrath of an armed citizenry. The destruction of the Bill of Rights is a prime objective of the beltway statists. Conversely, the elimination of the remnants of an American federalist constitutional republic is the key eliminate required for imposition of the global Illuminati matrix. The primal reason to foster a society that bears weapons is to maintain the means to fight tyranny on your native soil. The United Nations is a subversive and diabolical appendage of world despotism. The choice has never been clearer. Lock and load or kneel and grovel. Guns are mere instruments of force or defense, while government oppression is the reason why the public must possess the means of accountability.”

In the brave new world that is being engineered, going back to archery using rubber tips might be the only option, assuming that stringing for the bow would be allowed.

The list of government warfare against citizen’s right to bear arms just grows. Obama’s feds hid key data to get Calif. lead ammo ban passed in backdoor gun control move comes as no surprise. “Other states have also wrestled with the lead ammunition issue, but California is the first and only state to ban it altogether.”

From that other bastion of individual rights, the New York Times cannot conceal their joy in the item, Move to Ban a Bullet Adds to Its Appeal. However, in the spirit of balance the NYT quotes:

“Representative Robert W. Goodlatte, Republican of Virginia and the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, urged the agency to reconsider the rule.

“Millions upon millions of M855 rounds have been sold and used in the U.S., yet A.T.F. has not even alleged, much less offered evidence, that even one such round has ever been fired from a handgun at a police officer,” Mr. Goodlatte writes in a letter to the agency’s director, B. Todd Jones, to be sent this week.”

Surely there must be some compelling argument missing that proposes to criminalize the magic tip projectile.

This is a laughable proposal if the underlying intentions for disarming the citizenry was not the ultimate motive were not so draconian.

Do you have the guts to stand up to the goons? You don’t need to have guns to resist if they have their way. What good is a gun without bullets? What is needed is a concerted effort to support organizations and representatives that will fight against this tyranny now, before we all bleed because Americans allowed their disarmament.

The charade of false flag gun crimes used to enact more restrictive laws and regulations needs to be exposed as absolute folly and soul-destroying despotism.

The War On Preppers: Obama Bans Ammo For The Most Popular Rifle In America

obama gun control

Because he can’t get Congress to approve the things that he wants to do, Barack Obama has apparently decided to rule by decree for the rest of his time in the White House.  One of Obama’s latest moves is to try to ban some of the most popular ammunition for the most popular rifle in America.  Previously, the Obama administration attempted unsuccessfully to ban the AR-15.  That didn’t work, so now Obama is going after the ammunition.  This is yet another example of the war on preppers that is going on all over the nation.  Whether you are a gun owner or not, this assault on our constitutional rights should disturb you greatly.  Barack Obama has promised to try to squeeze as much “change” as possible out of his last two years, and in the process he is “fundamentally transforming” America.  But what will our country look like when he is done?

At the top of the Drudge Report today, there was a story from the Washington Examiner detailing this ammo ban…

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

And here is more on this ammo ban from the NRA

As NRA has been reporting since the night the news broke, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) is moving to infringe upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners with a drastic reinterpretation of a nearly 30-year-old law regulating so-called “armor piercing” ammunition. So draconian is BATFE’s new “Framework” that it would prohibit the manufacturing, importation, and sale of M855 ball ammunition, one of the most popular cartridges for the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15. Not coincidentally, the AR-15 is among the firearms the Obama Administration has unsuccessfully sought to outlaw. If they can’t ban the pie, so the thinking apparently goes, they might at least get the apples.

In an effort to thwart BATFE’s attempted action, NRA has worked with U.S. Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, to draft a letter to BATFE expressing the lawmakers’ opposition to the proposed Framework. To read a copy of the letter, please click this link.

According to the letter, “The idea that Congress intended [the ‘armor piercing’ ammunition law] to ban one of the preeminent rifle cartridges in use by Americans for legitimate purposes is preposterous.” It goes on to state that the law “should be construed in accordance with the American tradition of lawful firearms ownership, as protected by the Second Amendment.” This includes due consideration of “the many legitimate uses Americans make of their firearms including target practice, hunting, organized and casual competition, training and skills development, and instructional activities.“ The letter concludes with several pointed questions for B. Todd Jones, BATFE’s director, including why the agency bypassed the Administrative Procedures Act in proposing such a radical change to its prior interpretation and enforcement of the law.

The crazy thing about all of this is the fact that this ammunition has never met the legal definition of being “armor piercing”.  So what the Obama administration is attempting to do is outside the law.

A recent Infowars article broke this down…

The ATF is trying to ban M855 AR-15 ammunition by declaring it “armor piercing,” despite the ammo containing lead which exempts it from the classification according to law.

To be considered “armor piercing” under 18 U.S.C. 921 (a)(17)(B), a bullet must have an entirely metal core or have a jacket weighting more than 25% of its weight, which wouldn’t include M855 rounds because their bullets are partly lead.

The definition in full:

(17)

(A) The term “ammunition” means ammunition or cartridge cases, primers, bullets, or propellent powder designed for use in any firearm.

(B) The term “armor piercing ammunition” means- (i) a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely (excluding the presence of traces of other substances) from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium; or (ii) a full jacketed projectile larger than .22 caliber designed and intended for use in a handgun and whose jacket has a weight of more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile.

(C) The term “armor piercing ammunition” does not include shotgun shot required by Federal or State environmental or game regulations for hunting purposes, a frangible projectile designed for target shooting, a projectile which the Attorney General finds is primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes, or any other projectile or projectile core which the Attorney General finds is intended to be used for industrial purposes, including a charge used in an oil and gas well perforating device.

Needless to say, this ban is creating quite a bit of panic among gun owners.

Many gun owners are stocking up on this ammo while they still can

Word of ATF’s proposal sparked a run on ammo at some Springfield gun stores, and steep price spikes for steel-tipped military surplus ammo at some online ammo dealers. Rounds that sold for 25 to 30 cents apiece tripled at some some stores after BATF posted its proposal on its web site.

“We sold out of what we had in stock,” said Ryan Cook, manager of Eagle Armory in Springfield. “We didn’t have a lot in the store but I might have sold four or five cases after ATF’s statement came out. I called our suppliers but they said there was none available to order. It’s like the ammo shortage before. People are going to panic.”

Like I said earlier, even if you are not a gun owner you have got to be extremely concerned about this erosion of our constitutional rights.

We have a man occupying the White House that seems absolutely determined to stretch the limits of presidential power as far as they can possibly go.

And at this point he has become so arrogant that he doesn’t even care if Congress believes that what he is doing is legal.  Just consider what he said during one recent speech

Pres. Obama is daring Republicans to vote on whether or not his executive actions are legal.

Discussing opposition to his executive amnesty orders at an immigration town hall Wednesday, Obama said he would veto the vote because his actions are “the right thing to do”:

So in the short term, if Mr. McConnell, the leader of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, want to have a vote on whether what I’m doing is legal or not, they can have that vote. I will veto that vote, because I’m absolutely confident that what we’re doing is the right thing to do.

This is how republics die.  When one man starts grabbing more and more power and nobody stops him, eventually a dictatorship is born.

This is not what our founding fathers intended.  If they could see us today, they would be rolling over in their graves.

And a lot of Americans are getting fed up.

In fact, according to one recent survey only 47 percent of Americans still believe that Obama loves this country…

While the creepy #ILOVEOBAMA continues to trend on Twitter, fewer than half of American adults, 47 percent, say they believe that the president loves his country.

According to a survey conducted by Huffington Post/YouGov and released this week, a whopping 35 percent of Americans, more than one in three, believe that Obama doesn’t love the United States, while 17 percent said they weren’t sure.

The poll was conducted in the wake of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani telling a gathering in Manhattan that “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.”

So what do you think?

Do you believe that what Obama is trying to do is legal?

And do you believe that Obama actually loves this country and everything that it is supposed to stand for?

Obama Is Lying About The West Coast Import Crisis Being Over: The Latent Effects Will Crush America

West Coast Import Crisis

West Coast Import Crisis

West Coast imports handle almost 50% of all U.S. maritime trade and more than 70% of the country’s Asian imports. The recent resolution to the West Coast import crisis came none to soon and on the surface, America averted a disaster of monumental proportions with regard to the settling of the West Coast port labor dispute. However, if Americans think they have totally averted disaster in the long-term, they are sadly mistaken. The backlog of goods will take weeks to months to offload. The impact on our economy will be felt for years and the severity of the crisis was completely avoidable.

Inescapable Consequences

The settlement may have come in the nick of time to avert an economic collapse, in the near term, however, America is not escaping unscathed from the import crisis.

Los Angeles and Long Beach port officials saidIt will take weeks, if not months, just to clear the current backlog“. The dispute has reverberated throughout the U.S. economy, extending to agriculture, manufacturing, retail and transportation. The crisis has even hit consumers of French-fried potatoes at McDonald’s restaurants as far away as in Japan. Everyone from automakers to meat exporters are impacted by the failure of goods to flow from the ships to the retail outlets.

American consumers can expect to pay more for a car this summer as automakers were forced to turn to more expensive air freight to get parts to North American assembly lines. Japan’s Honda Motor  said its Ohio plant would resume full activity by today (Tuesday) but its plants in Canada and Indiana would be kept at a far lower production level. This leads to layoffs at a time when the U.S. and Canadian worker cannot afford another attack upon employment rates. The backup at the West Coast ports cost Honda about 25,000 vehicles in lost production this month. Along a similar vein, Toyota and Nissan have reduced total man hours at its plants. Wal-Mart is reporting that the delays have caused spot shortages and that potential earnings have more than likely have been reduced which could result in lost jobs.

Americans can expect to pay more for beef in the upcoming months. U.S. meat exporters have had to put millions of pounds of beef and pork into cold storage and ship by air or use Canadian or Mexican ports. Food giants, such as Tyson Foods are among the leading U.S. pork and beef producers that had to fly its meat products to cold storage facilities in Mexico. Hold on to your wallets America when it comes to food prices and this comes at a time when one in six Americans are already experiencing “food vulnerability”.

As it seems to be with all economic crisis, the farmers take the worst of it and the impact shows up in the form of higher food prices. This import crisis has the potential to wreak havoc on the American food consumer as it is estimated that California farmers lost hundreds of millions of dollars in rotting crops at the ports and lost food production resulting from the crisis. This has a ripple effect through the economy resulting in a loss of food production jobs as well as food transport jobs.

In summary, American consumers can expect to pay far more for food and other essential commodities as a result of the import crisis. The impact of the import crisis could not have come at a worse time for many Americans who are experiencing extreme financial distress.

The True Impact of the Import Crisis Has Not Yet Been Felt

Thirty-seven percent of Americans have credit card debt that equals or is greater than their emergency savings, according to a new survey, leaving them “teetering on the edge of financial disaster.”

A recent poll of more than 1,000 people in the United States by Bankrate.com found that 37% of Americans have credit card debt that is greater than their emergency savings. Another 13% have neither credit card debt nor emergency savings. In other words, many Americans have no margin for error. So, as the import crisis and its economic effects cascade across the country, over a third of the country has no means to weather the storm that will reverberate in the U.S. over the next six to nine months.

American Express reported in a 2014 survey that emergencies are more frequent than many would like to think. Over 50% of the Americans who responded to the survey had to deal with major unforeseen or emergency expenses in the past year. Americans said these crises included unexpected health expense (44%) and auto repair (46%). Soon, we are going to be talking about food prices as the next unplanned crisis.

Students are likely to impacted as well as the Federal Reserve Bank of New York reported last week that the quantity of student loans in the US overdue by 90 days or more has risen to 11.3%. Students, who are completing their studies and beginning to pay off their student loans have no margin for error. The victims are being lined up and soon they will be mowed down by economic forces beyond their control.

An Avoidable Crisis

The import crisis on the West Coast began in May of 2014. The Obama administration did not attempt to intervene until less than a 10 days ago. when Obama dispatched Labor Secretary, Thomas Perez, to California to resolve the crisis.  With the American economy teetering on the brink, Obama knew he had little wiggle room to get this crisis solved and we should all be asking why  he did not act for nearly nine months!

America’s Misery Index Continues to Grow

Investment watch is reporting that about 20% of all suicide deaths can be attributed to unemployment concerns. Investment Watch cites a survey from a team of researchers from the University of Zurich’s Psychiatric Hospital who found that suicides attributed to unemployment were nine times higher than the number of suicides attributed to the economic crisis downturn.

Under Obama the youth misery index has grown over 50%. National debt per capita for 2014 is the highest it’s ever been at $58,437. Young people will be stuck paying for government debt they had no part in creating as the sins of the father are visited upon the son. All of this comes at a time when King World News is proclaiming that the world is ready to enter a period of “immense financial destruction and social disorder”.

The Authors of the Obama Blueprint for American Destruction

Cloward and Piven  were present at the signing of NAFTA which remains as the single most destructive event in American economic history. The realization of the Cloward and Piven plot has been a long time coming and Obama is the right man at the right time to implement their “Rules for Radicals”.

Please allow me introduce you to the people whose writings inspired Obama to complete the task of collapsing of our economic system, Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven. Cloward and Piven authored the Cloward-Piven strategy which has been a long time coming and is fully in place in the United States.

This isn’t some conspiracy theory being set forth as these two former Columbia professors wrote about collapsing the economy and how they planned to do it in the article they co-authored in the 1960’s called, “Mobilizing the Poor: How it Could Be Done.” Six months after the initial publication, it was published in The Nation, under the title “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.”

Both publications were inspired by their belief in “social justice and fundamentally transformative change in America.” Interesting choice of words. Where have we heard these terms before? Didn’t Obama say something about fundamentally transforming America?

Inspired by the riots in LA in 1965, Cloward and Piven wrote and published their article which outlined the best way to bring the kind of extreme radical type of social change was to economically destroy America. In their estimation, the plan was designed to overwhelm the system and bring about the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with impossible demands and bring on an economic collapse mostly accomplished by the imposition of a massive welfare system made necessary by a contrived failing economy.

Obamacare is turning America into a nation of part time workers to avoid the regulations and taxes associated with the program and this will undoubtedly bankrupt most small businesses. I would call our present economic crisis a contrived economic failure.

Cloward and Piven instructed activists that if a crisis did not exist, promote or manufacture one by exaggerating some threatening predicament. Global warming and healthcare would certainly fit the description, wouldn’t it?

Conclusion

There are presently 97 million full-time working Americans as compared to 101 million Americans receiving some form of welfare. One would have to conclude that Cloward and Piven eventually achieved their goal of overwhelming the American economy through Obama’s presidency. Ask yourself a question America, what business could survive with only half of its employees producing anything?

One third of all Americans are in economic crisis and have no margin for error. America is on the verge of seeing unparalleled economic misery among a great number of people. What is coming will not be the Great Depression, but as Gerald Celente likes to call it, “The Greatest Depression”.

In volatile times such these, we cannot always see the economic death blow coming. However, the perpetual assault upon America by Obama (e.g. Obamacare, bail-outs, etc.)  it is clear that Obama is invoking Cloward and Piven’s strategy of overwhelming the system from within in order to collapse the system. And what follows? Hell on earth awaits this generation of Americans and its formal inception is right around the corner.

Osama, Obama, Bush…. It’s The Empire Stupid!

bush obama

Osama bin Laden, President Barak Obama and President George W. Bush were, and are, creatures of the American Military Industrial Empire.

They were nurtured, influenced, subsidized and controlled by this machine. Bin Laden was one of many rich, educated Muslims who became brainwashed by what I call the Islam or bust mindset. Much like the orthodox Zionists who rule Israel and the right-wing zealots here at home who preach their phony Christianity, any such belief system plays directly into the hands of the empire.

Go and watch Lorraine Levy’s fine film The Other Son (2012) and see why this empire so fears harmony amongst different cultural groups. Tis better to “divide and conquer” than to deal with mass movements of “people before profits.”

I await the time that more of my fellow Americans come to the realization that Obama and Bush Jr. are really born of the same dastardly parents: The Empire. Regardless of the fact, as William Blum explains in his new book of essays, Americas Deadliest Export: Democracy, that Obama is bright and articulate… He still then serves the same interests as his predecessor!

Many of my dear friends and one-time fellow activists who worked so diligently to get this man elected are now slowly having “buyer’s remorse.” During the height of the healthcare reform (oxymoron) debate a few short years ago, we who knew better told everyone that the so-called public option, AKA Medicare, for all who want it would never be proposed by Obama and his party.

Why? Well, look at the numbers: In the 2008 presidential campaign, McCain received more than $7 million in donations from the health care industry (including insurance companies). Barack Obama received… more than $21 million! What is now referred to as Obamacare is a gold ribbon for the private insurers.

Bush Jr. kept asking “Why do they hate us?“ after the terrible events on 9/11. If one studies this American Empire by reading The Untold History of the United States by Kuznick & Stone and Rogue State by William Blum, one would understand all that was done covertly by our government throughout the entire planet to seed that hatred.

After many hours of research on 9/11, this writer knows, inherently, that things were not what they seemed. This empire always needs a bogeyman out there in the darkness to both frighten and control us. Bush Jr. and his gang got just that with 9/11… in spades! If you read all the accounts that have come out since then, you would know that they were planning, way before September 11th, 2001, to invade and occupy Afghanistan and then Iraq.

Barack Obama knew that the empire committed an illegal and immoral pre-emptive attack and occupation of Iraq. When he became president, and the calls came out for hearings and possible indictments for the war criminal Bush and his gang, he said it was time to “Look forward and not back.” He did just that too. He “looked forward” and increased, by 10 times, the use of drone missile attacks in Libya, Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan that killed 10 times more innocent civilians than it did terror suspects.

All our American empire has done concerning the Middle East is exacerbate the rise of fanatical Islam, not curb it. Look at what is happening now with this ISIL. If we never destroyed and forcibly occupied Iraq and carpet-bombed Libya there is NO way any kind of ISIL would be able to recruit or grow.

Back here at home, our “Wave the flag” mentality seeps into our everyday life. The boob tube is full of tributes to the young pawns in uniform who are sent to places they should never have been sent to. One cannot watch any major sporting event without the customary salutes to our “Brave warriors.”

The film American Sniper could never have been made without these phony “Wars on Terror.” Tell me this: When was the last time our Congress actually declared War on any of the countries we have attacked or now occupy?

Yet, the costs go up and up, in lives of our own and those we invade and occupy… and destroy with our smart bombs and missiles. The costs here at home, in not only the mangled bodies of our young soldiers, but in our soon-to-be-bankrupt economy.

When more than half of our taxes goes for this empire’s overkill and overspend military mindset… our towns and cities are crumbling before our eyes. All the basic services and safety nets are fading away… and it matters not at all whether we elect a Republican or Democrat to those who run the puppet show.

Perhaps the millions of license plates that now promote Army, Marines or Navy should be substituted by the car owners to state Pull back the Empire! Now, that would be patriotic.

Obama To Give Jihadists The Ability To Order Airstrikes (VIDEO)

obama-isis

By: Mikael Thalen | Infowars -

“Rebels” who pledged allegiance to ISIS to control American bombers in Syria.

The Obama administration is preparing to equip the so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels with the ability to order U.S. air strikes despite the group’s admitted allegiance to the Islamic State.

Members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) will be provided with radios to call in strikes from American B-1B bombers as well as pickup trucks with mounted machine guns as the president puts the final touches on plans to train as many as 3,000 rebels in Jordan and Turkey by the end of 2015.

“Negotiations have been concluded and an agreement text will be signed with the US regarding the training of the Free Syrian Army in the coming period,” said Turkish Foreign Ministry Spokesman Tanju Bilgic.

The planes will reportedly use similar munitions to those seen in Afghanistan, targeting anything from small vehicles to tanks with 500 and 2,000-pound guided bombs.

Aside from the Toyota Hi-Lux trucks, multiple groups of rebels will also be given mortars and possibly antitank weapons as well.

A senior military official speaking with the Wall Street Journal stated that the decision would likely emulate recent bombing campaigns against the Islamic State in Iraq.

“The way we envision it, it would be very similar to Kobani,” the source said.

Ludicrously refuting previous statements by claiming not to be at war with the Syrian government, U.S. officials alleged that air strikes would likely not be ordered against the Syrian army.

Despite the Obama administration’s claims, countless intelligence and military officials have stated that the “moderate” rebels are essentially non-existent, with well over 90 percent being with terrorist groups or aligned in ideology.

Just last September, a commander with the FSA admitted to fighting alongside several terrorist organizations in the region including the Islamic State.

“We are collaborating with the Islamic State and the Nusra Front by attacking the Syrian Army’s gatherings in… Qalamoun,” Bassel Idriss, commander of an FSA-run rebel brigade, said. “Let’s face it: The Nusra Front is the biggest power present right now in Qalamoun and we as FSA would collaborate on any mission they launch as long as it coincides with our values.”

Jamal Maarouf, the leader of the Syrian Revolutionary Front (SRF), also told reporters last April that his fighters regularly worked with Al Qaeda and Al-Nusra as well.

During the same time period it was reported that “several factions within the FSA, including Ahl Al Athar, Ibin al-Qa’im,” decided to hand their weapons over to the Islamic State before pledging their allegiance to the group.

An Islamic State fighter speaking with Al-Jazeera in 2013 revealed that the FSA regularly sold its weapons to them shortly after they would receive shipments from the U.S.

“We are buying weapons from the FSA,” Abu Atheer said. “We bought 200 anti-aircraft missiles and Koncourse anti tank weapons. We have good relations with our brothers in the FSA.”

Obama’s rebels and the Islamic State even went as far as to sign a non-aggression pact with one another in order to rally against the Assad government in late 2014.

In fact, with thousands of rebels openly defecting and joining ranks with the Islamic State, President Obama was forced to brazenly repeal sections of U.S. law that banned the arming of known terrorist groups in order to keep weapons flowing.

Obama’s actions spurred a major backlash within the military at the end of 2013, resulting in numerous U.S. troops taking to social media to post photos of themselves holding up signs stating that they would not fight on the same side as terrorists in Syria.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz presciently warned in 2013 that President Obama was quickly turning the United States into Al Qaeda’s air force as the situation in Syria continued to intensify.

“We should be focused on defending the United States of America,” Cruz said. “That’s why young men and women sign up to join the military, not to, as you know, serve as Al Qaeda’s air force.”

Obama’s Drone War Death Count Surpasses Spanish Inquisition

Nobel-peace-drone-Obama
By: SM Gibson | The Anti Media -

Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama’s covert drone war has done something in 6 years that it took the Spanish Inquisition 350 years to accomplish. It has killed more than 2,400 people. In fact, the president’s death count by drone has reached a staggering 2,464. The kicker is that these deaths have all occurred outside of U.S. declared war zones.

The man whom many consider the leader of the free world ironically stated last month,

“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place. Remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”

The statement was said in response to the Jordanian pilot who was recently allegedly burned alive by ISIS and was intended to reference the hyperbolic western media that stirs unwarranted and reckless fears against Muslims worldwide.

While the President may have been correct in stating that all religions have blood on their hands, it must have slipped his mind to glance down at his own hands before making such a bold statement.

In 2004, the Vatican published their findings after a six year long study into the notorious Inquisition. The research concluded – in an 800 page report – that only 1.8% of those investigated by the Spanish Inquisition were actually killed. Given that 125,000 trials took place over the course of the historically ill-famed inquiries, that would account for an estimated 2,250 killed over the 350 year Inquisition. That is approximately 200 fewer deaths than have been carried out under the orders of a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Speaking of high horses, Mr. President, I can only hope you aren’t afraid of heights.

 

The US Economy Is Days Away From Shutting Down

If the back up of the container cargo ships, in American ports, continues much longer, our stores will soon look like what is pictured here.

A Telling Report From Tacoma

The Global Economy Has Officially Crashed

The BDI has officially reached record lows. A global economic collapse is underway.

The BDI has officially reached record lows. A global economic collapse is underway.

The Baltic Dry Index has officially hit rock bottom with unprecedented lows. The forces behind the Trans Pacific Partnership have effectively used their influence to greatly stall the delivery of critically important commodities until the TPP is fully implemented among its member nations.

Who is responsible for the crash caused by the failure to move product through the world’s ports?

Trans Pacific Partnership, Was Initiated at U.S. West Coast Ports on February 13, 2015

The above headlines tells who is behind what is happening, it does not tell you how bad it is going to get. The unions are refusing to back down and it is for darn sure that the TPP will not back down either!

The backlog of ships is a crisis being done on purpose because the private multinational corporations want to empty the shelves in supermarkets nationwide for three or four weeks, designed to force the American people to approve the blackmail contained in the Trans Pacific Partnership. This is the economic end-game which will permit these multinational corporations to become nation-states across the planet.

Most Americans will fail to notice the threat until they can no longer purchase food in the super-markets, or mail-order prescription medications are not shipped. The sheep of this country will still be in denial that this could ever happen. The unions have now been idled, at major American shipping ports, because the multinational corporate owners of the shipping companies are keeping their ships filled with perishable goods at sea until all governmental opposition to the fast-tracked TPP is ended. Watch this video and listen to the what LA City Councilman, Joe Buscaino says when he states that even if product were to be off-loaded, in force, today, it would still take six to eight months to “get back to normal”. The United States economy does not have six to eight months to recover. It does not have six to eight days to survive the economic Armageddon that is coming.

Meanwhile, While We Slept

While the United States is fully preoccupied with global crises ranging from the fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, and the conflict in Ukraine, there is another development on the world stage which threatens the economic health of every single American and American based business. Specifically, I am referencing the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). The protocols of the TPP establish a free-trade zone/bloc stretching from Vietnam to Chile and Japan. The most draconian free trade agreement in history includes nearly a billion people which encompass almost 40% of the world’s economy. Since Obama failed to fast-track the TPP into law last year, he has made amazing progress and America is nearing its fate with economic Armageddon.

Transferring the American Economy to a Corporate Dictatorship 

As America races toward her date with destiny, there is yet another “fundamentally transforming” event coming her way and that event is known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Many of us in the media believe that some of the effects of the TPP will be felt before the coming war and martial law crackdown. However, after careful analysis, I am convinced that the brunt of the TPP will be felt after the America we know has been totally taken over in a post-war and post-economic collapse scenario. At the end of the day, it does not matter when the implementation of the TPP comes, because when it does, America will no longer be recognizable to anyone who has grown up in this once great country.

The Implementation of the TPP Is Progressing By Stealth

Some of you are reading these words have no idea what the Trans-Pacific Partnership consists of. Most of you have never heard of it. Some of you have heard or read the term, but fail to realize the extreme danger that the implementation of this so-called trade agreement will mean to America and our way of life. A scant few are coming to realize just how dangerous the TPP truly is. For the record, the TPP is masquerading as a free trade agreement involving the US, Australia, Japan, Canada, Brunei, Vietnam, Malaysia, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru and Singapore. The TPP is much, much more than a free trade agreement.

With regard to the TPP, ignorance of the organization is understandable. We in the truthful part of the media have not fulfilled our duty to fully explore the ramifications of the TPP because so little is publicly known. Obama has taken full advantage of the cloudy environment and is preparing to even bypass the constitutionally required approval of the Congress before implementing the TPP through a process called “fast-tracking”.

Obama Is Bypassing Congressional Approval

Under the TPP, GMO labels for US food would not be allowed. Also not allowed is any form of Congressional oversight. 

President Obama is indeed seeking Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority for the TPP as he feverishly attempted to get the deal done by the end of the year. The REAL reason that the cargo container ships are backed upon our ports is because the TPP and Obama is holding all the parties hostage until they get what they want, the fast-tracking approval which will allow Obama to completely ignore Congress in regard to allowing Congress to fulfill its statutory duty in approving all trades.  Obama, on behalf of the TPP wants to break the unions and all power of any ancillary support group, which is why we are seeing products backed up in our ports. Under such an agreement, this would permit Obama to sign the trade agreement “without Congressional approval.”

All action, emanating from the U.S. government, with regard to the TPP, is secret. When something is secret and kept from you, it is usually very bad for you!

After “Fast-Tracking”, Obama would send the finalized agreement to Congress and this would subsequently force a vote within 90 days. Congressional debate would be very limited and no amendments would be permitted. Even if Congress wanted to protect the American worker and the American economy from devastation, they cannot if Obama obtains the power to fast-track the TPP.

Let’s be clear, Obama is violating the separation of powers principle of the US Constitution by leaving Congress in the dark and by limiting their ability to use their Congressional powers as they would with any other legislation. The rumors of the TPP policies are so horrific that even the Kool-Aid drinkers from the Democratic party are calling on Obama to allow more transparency. Congress is asking Obama to allow for more transparency? I did not know that we passed a Constitutional amendment which states that Congress works for Obama.

The TPP Represents the Total Loss of US Sovereignty

The TPP is the brain child of the corporations. The TPP places all member nations directly under the control of the TPP instead of their respective national governments. Congress has been denied access to review any of the documents. Alan Grayson (D-FL) was granted a special exemption to view a small part of the TPP and he was told by TPP officials to keep his mouth shut as Grayson recalls that “They maintain that the text is classified information. I’m a member of Congress, but now they tell me that they don’t want me to talk to anybody about it because if I did, I’d be releasing classified information.”  Do you realize what this means? The corporate controlled TPP has granted themselves the authority to exercise the governmental power of classifying documents and Congress is included in the exclusion. Do you understand that this means we are living in a corporate dictatorship? It gets even worse.

Meet Your New Government: Monsanto and Walmart

As if it is not egregious enough that Congress is not allowed to view TPP documents, the 600 corporate officials, who form the TPP panel (e.g. corporate officials from corporations such as Monsanto and Walmart), have complete control of the developmental process of the TPP. Obama, Monsanto and Walmart can view any part of the process, Congress and the American public cannot.

Further, a leaked chapter of the TPP speaks to the creation of a TPP Tribunal Council which will have the authority to force member nations to transform its laws, its civil procedures, its criminal procedures, even its electoral process, in order to abide by the TPP Tribunal dictates. The bottom line is that we are witnessing the destruction of the Constitution and the entire legal code of the United States, because once the tribunal makes a ruling with regard to a national law, there is no appeal. The Tribunal consists of unelected bureaucrats who are appointed by the creators of the TPP. The term of office for Tribunal officials is unlimited.

The most disturbing aspect of this agreement is that the TPP totally eviscerates the Tenth Amendment of the US Constitution. If, for example, the State of Arizona wanted to outlaw fracking, the TPP could overrule the local legislation if it so desired. To illustrate how far this unconstitutional corporate power extends, the TPP could declare cocaine trafficking to be legal and this could not be challenged by any level of government, nor is it subject to review by the Supreme Court. Obama and his TPP cronies are writing the obituary for the U.S. Constitution.

The TPP represents the total obliteration of American sovereignty. Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention another small set of details. How long do you think it will take until the TPP imposes a draconian version of cap and trade upon the American people and small businesses? The cap and trade version of what Obama tried to get passed in the Senate, when he first took office, consisted of reducing everyone’s energy consumption by 80% and utility rates “would necessarily skyrocket.”

Please pause for just one moment and ask yourself if you like would like an 80% reduction of individual and business energy use and what that dramatic reduction of energy use would look like? The rank and file in this country would effectively be living in 1890.

This is Agenda 21 on steroids and it is being fully implemented through the back door. That is why the TPP is being kept from Congress and the American people.

These facts lead me to state that, if any of this is remotely true, then this President needs to be arrested and tried for treason.

Where Is This Headed?

Obama’s fast tracking of the TPP which was designed to be completed by the end of the year would have coincided with the commencement of many of Obama’s health care reforms which have now been implemented as of February 15, 2015 (e.g. the tripling of Obamacare fines and the full exposure of the “death panels” which deny many kinds of healthcare treatments at age 70 and above). And all of this coincides with communist take-over of the United States economy.

I wish I could accurately state that the loss of sovereignty is the only threat that the TPP poses to the American people. However, to say so, would constitute a grossly inaccurate statement. Under the TPP, the alternative media will be destroyed, guns will be confiscated and the face of American employment will be forever changed in ways that you will not believe. If anything, this article has understated the threat posed to America by the TPP. The TPP is not a free trade agreement, it is a document which introduces a new era into American government. If the TPP passes, we will be living in an absolute fascist corporate dictatorship.

This constitutes a form of economic martial law. And while this article is passing out one nightmare after another, please consider the fact that China and Russia are being purposely left out of the TPP. Why?  From an economic standpoint, that makes no sense unless one realizes that we are on a collision course with World War III and the BRIC nations, headed by China and Russia who will be our opponent in the upcoming conflict and the military balance of power is purposely being shifted by senior American politicians which are intentionally designed to weaken both the American economy and the American military.

Massive shortages are at our doorstep and the US economy is days away from shutting down. Walmart is resupplied six times per day. The shortages will soon show up in your shipped medications, food supplies and so forth. The crisis isn’t coming, it is here!

This article only served the purpose of introducing the gravity of the problem. What this truly entails for the average American, and more importantly, what, if anything, can be done about it, will follow in future articles.

Obama Has Finally Found His Excuse To Invade Syria

obama-moving-forward11

(Editor’s Note: Another false flag?)

The parents of Kayla Mueller, the Arizona woman who was taken hostage by ISIS in August, 2013, confirmed Tuesday their daughter died while in the hands of the terror group.

“We are heartbroken to share that we’ve received confirmation that Kayla Jean Mueller, has lost her life,” Carl and Marsha Mueller, of Prescott, Ariz., said in a statement. “Kayla was a compassionate and devoted humanitarian. She dedicated the whole of her young life to helping those in need of freedom, justice, and peace… Kayla, in a 2011 letter to her father stated that some people see God in the Bible or in Church, Kayla found God in helping to alleviate suffering.”

The family received information from their daughter’s ISIS captors over the weekend that was authenticated, according to U.S. officials.

“The family received a private message from Kayla’s ISIL captors containing additional information,” National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said Tuesday. “Once this information was authenticated by the intelligence community, they concluded that Kayla was deceased.”

It is not yet known how or when 26-year-old Mueller died. ISIS claimed last week that she was killed by a Jordanian airstrike, but offered no immediate evidence.

President Obama issued a statement Tuesday, also acknowledging her death (Good Morning Arizona, Channel 3 News, Phoenix, AZ. 2/10/2015.)

Kayla’s death is the kind of tragedy that can easily inflame a nation’s passion to go to war. Subsequently, President Obama wasted no time asking Congress for a declaration of war and Kayla’s tragic death is the impetus behind this move.

Like most American citizens, we are all outraged at Kayla’s death and we want revenge against the animals that did this. As justified as these feelings are, Kayla’s death may end up being the provocation for World War III. 

Obama Is Still Under Immense Pressure

Obama is under enormous pressure, from the Federal Reserve Banksters to take out the Iranian regime. The need to take down Iran is necessitated because the Petrodollar is in real trouble because of Iran’s insistence on selling oil to countries such as India, China and Russia in exchange for gold.

Gold is a four letter word to the Banksters. The Banksters must maintain their fiat currency schemes. Subsequently, the Banksters must dominate the purchase of oil and the distribution of gold for three reasons:

(1) The Banksters thrive on fiat currency which is backed by virtually nothing and this is coupled with fractional reserve practices in order to acquire real material wealth based on their creation of worthless paper and the introduction of gold threatens this Ponzi scheme;

This is what happens to those who say no to the central banking cartel.

(2) Since Breton Woods, the world has been forced by the Banksters to play in their Ponzi scheme game by first purchasing Federal Reserve dollars which is in turn used to purchase oil. Saddam Hussein failed to play by the Petrodollar rules by selling oil for Euros and paid for his disobedience with his life; and,

(3) Once the Banksters collapse the currencies of the world, they want to be the ones controlling gold, the only remaining currency, in a post economic Armageddon.

To accomplish these goals, Iran must go. And before Iran can be conquered, Syria must be taken down.

Why Does Syria Have to Be Occupied Before Attacking Iran?

Putin threatened to nuke the United States if it invaded Syria in violation of international law. Syria is critical to the Russians on a number of fronts. However, the most compelling reason for Putin to defend Syria is because if the U.S. is able to successfully occupy Syria, the U.S. will be able to install their short and medium range missile batteries which would prevent the Russians from moving into Syria, thus preventing an American ground invasion of Iran. Once Syria is occupied by the U.S. it is just a matter of time until the U.S., can find a reason to invade Iran. Once Iran is conquered, the Petrodollar is preserved, at least for the time being. Invading Syria has been Obama’s top foreign policy goal since 2013.  Obama is now on his second Reichstag moment with regard to putting boots on the ground in Syria.

Obama’s First Reichstag Moment

All historians are familiar with how Hitler was able to seize and consolidate power within the German Reichstag. He simply had his henchmen burn the German legislative building to the ground and then blame the Communists, one of the Nazi’s chief rivals. Subsequently, Hitler assumed total dictatorial power, as a pretense to protect the German people, and he was able to eliminate the Communists and the rest, as they say, was history.

President Obama previously tried to invoke his “Reichstag” pretext for war with Syria as Obama had accused Syrian leader, Assad, of using chemical weapons against the rebels in 2013, despite the fact that it appears likely that the al-Qaeda run rebels were the ones using chemical weapons. Obama was unable to get Congress or the American people to believe that this chemical attack was a justified reason to go to war, and in the fall of 2013, Obama failed to get the war with Syria that he desired.

Obama’s Second Reichstag Moment

Ask the average American, “Who is ISIS?”, they will pause and give you a blank stare. ISIS came from nowhere. It is well armed and acts like a well-trained army.  Abracadabra, poof, ISIS appears at the very time we pull out of Iraq. This is no coincidence. What we now know is that the U.S. military left behind key combat equipment in Iraq. By law, the U.S. military was to destroy these weapons upon vacating a war zone. Why wasn’t this done? Someone had to give the order to not destroy the equipment. And just who comprises ISIS? We are now told that it is a conglomeration of terrorist interests ranging from al Qaeda to Hamas to the Muslim Brotherhood. And this loose confederation of terrorists is armed to the teeth in the latest in American military technology. Even the most ardent supporter of the Obama administration would have to suspect that ISIS is a CIA creation and that is exactly what my military sources have been telling me.

The goal for ISIS is to spread terror and havoc across Iraq and have this spread into Syria. I wrote in 2013, that there will be a provoking event which will invite American military intervention into Syria against ISIS as an excuse to remove Assad and occupy Syria. Kayla Jean Mueller’s proported death has provided that provocation. Kayla’s noble character and devotion to humanity makes her an ideal martyr for Obama to be doing what he is doing which is commence a “three year ground war” against ISIS.

My military sources are laughing in amazement that anyone would believe that it would take the full force of the U.S. military three years to take down ISIS. What a joke! Because of air superiority, our military could eliminate ISIS as an effective battlefield force in three days, not three years! However, what ISIS does provide is an impetus to put boots on the ground in Syria. The following is a map of ISIS territorial gains.

ISIS intrusion into Syria is no accident.

Please note that this map is 9 months old, but is still mostly accurate as ISIS has been occuped with solidifying their acquistoins. But also note that ISIS is poised to attack Damascus.

What is even more noteworthy is that ISIS now controls much of Iraqi oil. This permits ISIS to buy weapons on the international market as a result of this control.

Where did such an upstart terrorist group gain this kind of financial and military sophistication?  The short and only answer is through the CIA. ISIS was created to put American boots on the ground in Syria in order to block Russian intervention for an invasion of Iran.  This is a Petrodollar war.

Conclusion

When American troops enter Syria against this fabricated enemy, how will Putin respond? Will there be domestic ramifications? These are the topics of the next article in this series.

Dave was drawn to the fight for freedom when the globalist central banking forces, led by Senator John McCain, attempted to seize his home and property and that of 300 of his neighbors, without one dime being offered in compensation. This attempted public theft of private property was conducted for the purpose of securing cheap land in which the globalists intended on putting in an international highway through their area known as the Canamex Corridor. Dave’s community appointed him the spokesperson and eventually his community won their fight against the bankers and their front man, Senator McCain.
