The Patriot Act Is Now USA Freedom Act

The Patriot Act Is Now USA Freedom Act

How many times has the mainstream media mentioned the USA Freedom Act? Well, if you did hear of this legislation, you must have been watching C-SPAN or a foreign press channel. Read a report from NPR, that government funded broadcast, which never fails to present a known editorial viewpoint.

“The USA Freedom Act extends many parts of the 2001 USA Patriot Act, which expires June 1. The measure’s fate in the Senate is less likely.

The surveillance issue has sparked “rare bipartisan unity” in the House, NPR’s David Welna reports for today’s All Things Considered. He notes that the push to change the law comes from Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

“Despite changes to the NSA bulk telephone metadata program announced by President Obama last year,” Goodlatte says, “the bulk collection of the records has not ceased, and will not cease, unless and until Congress acts to shut it down.”

Wednesday’s vote comes nearly two years after former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden revealed the U.S. government’s secret program to collect and store huge amounts of data from millions of Americans’ phone records.”

Missing in the lack of “all things considered” press coverage is a comprehensive national debate on why Congress is renewing most of the components of the Patriot Act to begin with? The questionable support in the Senate for supporting this House measure, speaks to the nature of the “world’s greatest deliberative body”.

The Boston Herald provides the likely outcome from Senate leaders propose extending NSA phone records storage.

“Weeks before a key surveillance law expires, Senate Republicans have introduced a bill that would allow the National Security Agency to continue collecting the calling records of nearly every American.

The measure by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and intelligence committee Chairman Richard Burr would bypass Senate committees and reauthorize sections of the Patriot Act, including the provision under which the NSA is requiring phone companies to turn over the “to and from” records of most domestic landline calls.”

In order to understand the distinction in the House bill, read H.R.3361 – USA FREEDOM Act.

SEC. 103. PROHIBITION ON BULK COLLECTION OF TANGIBLE THINGS.

(a) Application.—Section 501(b)(2) (50 U.S.C. 1861(b)(2)), as amended by section 101(a) of this Act, is further amended by inserting before subparagraph (B), as redesignated by such section 101(a) of this Act, the following new subparagraph:

“(A) a specific selection term to be used as the basis for the production of the tangible things sought;”.

(b) Order.—Section 501(c) (50 U.S.C. 1861(c)) is amended—

(1) in paragraph (2)(A), by striking the semicolon and inserting “, including each specific selection term to be used as the basis for the production;”; and

(2) by adding at the end the following new paragraph:

“(3) No order issued under this subsection may authorize the collection of tangible things without the use of a specific selection term that meets the requirements of subsection (b)(2).”.

TITLE II—FISA PEN REGISTER AND TRAP AND TRACE DEVICE REFORM

SEC. 201. PROHIBITION ON BULK COLLECTION. 

(a) Prohibition.—Section 402(c) (50 U.S.C. 1842(c)) is amended—

(1) in paragraph (1), by striking “; and” and inserting a semicolon;

(2) in paragraph (2), by striking the period and inserting a semicolon; and

(3) by adding at the end the following new paragraph:

“(3) a specific selection term to be used as the basis for selecting the telephone line or other facility to which the pen register or trap and trace device is to be attached or applied; and”.

(b) Definition.—Section 401 (50 U.S.C. 1841) is amended by adding at the end the following new paragraph:

“(4) The term ‘specific selection term’ has the meaning given the term in section 501.”.

Now these measures are being lauded as addressing the NSA domestic spying methods, which has caused such uproar among civil libertarians. However, placing your trust in such language misses the fundamental point why an outright repeal of the Patriot Act is not being passed.

The correct approach is outlined by Ron Paul: Don’t Be Fooled by Un-American ‘USA Freedom’ Act.

“The political group Paul founded, Campaign for Liberty, released a statement Tuesday criticizing the “inaptly named” USA Freedom Act. Campaign for Liberty went on to encourage lawmakers to endorse the Surveillance State Repeal Act, which would fully repeal the Patriot Act and the equally controversial 2008 FISA Amendments Act.”

From this proposed alternative legislation:

Surveillance State Repeal Act – Repeals the USA PATRIOT Act and the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 (thereby restoring or reviving provisions amended or repealed by such Acts as if such Acts had not been enacted), except with respect to reports to Congress regarding court orders under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) and the acquisition of intelligence information concerning an entity not substantially composed of U.S. persons that is engaged in the international proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

Requires orders approving certain electronic surveillance to direct that, upon request of the applicant, any person or entity must furnish all information, facilities, or technical assistance necessary to accomplish such surveillance in a manner to protect its secrecy and produce a minimum of interference with the services that such carrier, landlord, custodian, or other person is providing the target of such surveillance (thereby retaining the ability to conduct surveillance on such targets regardless of the type of communications methods or devices being used by the subject of the surveillance).

Prohibits the federal government from requiring manufacturers of electronic devices and related software to build in mechanisms allowing the federal government to bypass encryption or privacy technology.”

This shell game that passes for “good government” is discussed in the Inherent Autonomy essay, The Fourth Amendment, NSA and Metadata. The summary concludes:

“The snoops view you as an enemy of the state, unless you can prove differently, whereas the reality is that The Strange World of NSA Mind Control is the true foe of the liberty of people and a free nation.”

This is the essence of the motivation behind the original passage of the Patriot Act. Celebrating restriction on domestic surveillance, when the entire intent of the original legislation destroys the constitution is hardly a reason for jubilation. When the executive branch technocrats ignore any law, which conflicts with their intended tyrannical purpose of government dominance, Congress needs to defund any agency that refuses to protect the true public interest.

The absurdity that a total scrutiny society will make citizens safe is beyond intelligent debate. Yet the country has been willing to endure the prying eyes of Homeland Security, rationalized with a trumped up excuse that trashing the constitution is necessary to achieve a crusade against a phantom bogyman.

Jay Syrmopoulos writes in Why are People Celebrating? USA FREEDOM Act is a Big Win for the NSA- Not Civil Liberties about the USA Freedom Act.

“What no one wants to say out loud is that this is a big win for the NSA, and a huge nothing burger for the privacy community,” said a former senior intelligence office, while speaking to The Daily Beast.

The bill doesn’t actually end or suspend the phone records program, but simply requires phone companies to hold onto these records rather than the NSA.

Additionally, under this bill the NSA will now get cell phone records in addition to the landline call records. Under the current collection regime, only landline call records are kept.

“The NSA is coming out of this unscathed,” Joel Brenner, the NSA’s former inspector general, told The Daily Beast. “I think no one thought it was in the realm of the possible before this bill.”

The irony is that this is exactly what former NSA Director Gen. Keith Alexander had wanted to implement previously, but the idea was shelved due to the extreme unlikeliness of Congress being willing to pass such legislation.

“The USA Freedom Act”—the supposed reining in of the NSA—“was literally born from Alexander,” the former official said.”

This assessment is not a surprise, because the District of Criminals generates every opportunity to create a false straw man in order to justify a more punitive response.

The Orwellian culture that has engulfed America goes unnoticed in the daily lives of a submissive populace. The courts only protect the despotism of the federal government. The few remaining civil libertarians are ignored or marginalized through the mass media propaganda that views any dissent to the established order as a threat to the entire Washington political class.

The NSA has proven that it operates above the law and no new legislation will curb the totalitarian appetites of the outlaw monitoring institution. Privacy has been destroyed in the United States intentionally to control the population.

Authoritarianism has replaced personal solitude in order to dissect every aspect of one’s life. If people are not angry over this reality, they deserve submissive enslavement. The Patriot Act has always been a national disgrace. Now the USA Freedom Act will be the next scorn.

“Failure To Obey” Documentary On Checkpoint Refusal (VIDEO)

Failure_to_Obey_Documentary_on_Checkpoint_Refusal_full_movie__196945

According to current federal law, border patrol agents currently have the authority to stop and conduct searches on vessels, trains, aircraft, or other vehicles anywhere within “a reasonable distance from any external boundary of the United States.” This “reasonable distance” is defined as 100 miles from any border, including coastal boundaries.

In this 100-mile zone, the US Border Patrol has claimed certain extra-constitutional powers, such as, claiming the authority to operate inland immigration checkpoints.

In practice, Border Patrol agents routinely ignore or misunderstand the limits of their legal authority, violating the constitutional rights of innocent people. Although the 100-mile border zone is not literally “Constitution-free,” it is frequently treated as such by the Border Patrol.

As a result, two-thirds of the U.S. population, or approximately 200 million people, are potentially subject to detention and warrantless searches by Border Patrol agents.

This film documents the story of Pastor Steven Anderson being being beaten, tasered, and jailed for refusing a warrant-less search of his vehicle. The film also covers his trial and subsequent border patrol encounters.

Watch Out! More Collectivism And “Sustainability” To Come At The 2015 UN Summit

United Nations summit and paris

The 2015 UN Summit will be held in September 2015 in New York. Like any UN summit, it will be full of UN buzzwords such as consensus, empowerment, rule of law and sustainability, all of which are fake and have a sinister double meaning. The United Nations, founded by the Rockefellers and the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), has always been, right from its inception, about creating a One World Government. It has achieved this by appearing to be “of the people” when “of the globalists” would be a more apt description. Later this year, it will attempting to adopt the “post-2015 development agenda” which will be a furthering of its Agenda 21 aims, such as grabbing national land under the guise of saving the environment, forcing people off their land into tiny apartments in Smart Cities, global gun control and global internet control (the latest of its power grabbing schemes).

The Post-2015 Development Agenda

Here are some of the items on the agenda at the 2015 UN Summit:

– Protecting our planet and combatting climate change

– Building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions to achieve sustainable development

– Delivering on a revitalised Global Partnership (which includes “meeting all commitments on the means of implementation”)

Sounds great and seems so noble if you don’t know the background to all this. However, when you pass the above points through the Orwellian translation unit, it means centralizing vast amounts of power into a body destined to become the World Government, under the pretext of fighting an imaginary manmade global warming or climate change. It also means extending the reach of the UN so that local bodies (local councils and municipalities that belong to ICLEI, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) can implement its global directives and make it look grassroots or like it was locally decided.

United Nations “Consensus” = Bought-and-Paid-For Opinion

The UN loves to boast about how it operates by consensus. However, it’s fake consensus, much like the nations of the West have fake democracy. There is no real democracy when all of the political candidates have the same view on key issues, and answer to the same force. Likewise, there is no real consensus when the direction and agenda have been decided in advance. It’s just a playing out of a discussion, cleverly guided by key agents to ensure the outcome is what the elite have secretly dictated beforehand. One way this happens at the UN is through the World Bank (a branch for the UN) which pays for people (from all corners of the globe) to come to events to give appearance of a global consensus of all the citizens of the world. However, a condition of them being funded is that they say what they are told to say. Rose Koire and others have also exposed the Delphi Technique, which is a way that meetings are cleverly manipulated by facilitators to guide the group towards an end goal, view or consensus, while making it appear the group arrived there organically.

United Nations “Empowerment” = One World Military

When the UN talks about empowerment, it is not really talking about individual empowerment for you or I. That is just a pretext. The UN is seeking global power. It was set up to become higher and more powerful than national Governments. It is seeking the empowerment of itself. It wants an army or police force with which it can start to impose all its rules over every nation and person on Earth. There is already a UN “Peacekeeping” force – another Orwellian name for military soldiers. War is Peace. In a similar vein, the UN “Humanitarian Missions” are not called wars but are wars. They involve the attacking and bombing of innocent countries (including many civilians, women and children, such as happened in Libya) because UN leaders and “the international community” (i.e. the elite-controlled global consensus) has decided that they want more control over a particular area. The more that the UN empowers itself, the closer we step to a One World Military force.

United Nations “Rule of Law” = Subversion of National Sovereignty

The UN keeps invoking the “Rule of Law” mantra to convince people it has authority over them when it doesn’t. Interestingly, this is exactly the phrase used by George Bush Sr. on September 11th, 1991, when he publicly pushed for a New World Order. The UN keeps arrogantly proceeding with its “Rule of Law” idea, however the basic rule of treaty law is that a treaty is only binding on the signatories, and the UN is still trying to impose the ICC (International Criminal Court) upon all countries, even those who have not signed on to it. This is based upon the arbitrary number of “60” countries that ratified it. It all stems from the false belief that UN Charter trumps the US Constitution.

United Nations “Sustainability” = Centralization of Control

The 2015 UN Summit agenda includes “effective, accountable and inclusive institutions to achieve sustainable development”. Sustainability and sustainable development are clever pretexts for centralization of power. This stems from the decision made decades ago by the elite to use the threat of pollution and environmental catastrophe, or the threat of humanity itself, as the cover for a worldwide power grab. Consider the excerpt below from the Report from the Iron Mountain:

“It may be, for instance, that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by nuclear weapons as the principal apparent threat to the survival of the species. Poisoning of the air, and of the principal sources of food and water supply, is already well advanced, and at first glance would seem promising in this respect; it constitutes a threat that can be dealt with only through social organization and political power.”

Consider also this excerpt from the Club of Rome’s 1991 document entitled The First Global Revolution:

“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together … all these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself.”

The Entire Foundation of the United Nations …

Underpinning all the marketing buzzwords of the United Nations, and underpinning the entire foundation of the United Nations itself, is the same insidious ideology behind many famous “isms”. It’s the same ideology behind fascism, socialism and communism. It’s called collectivism – and it doesn’t matter whether you’re left or right (a false dichotomy anyway since both sides are controlled by the same force), because collectivist thinking controls all parts of the current political spectrum across the world.

Collectivism is the idea that the group is more important than the individual, that the State is everything, that only the State grants human rights and that there should be no private property. Collectivism is total anathema to individual freedom and rights, and everything upon which the American Republic was founded. No one has exposed this better than G. Edward Griffin, whose speeches and books are worth close attention.

The elite controllers promoting collectivism are trying to achieve, though the UN, one of the finest pieces of brainwashing ever attempted: to convince you that all your rights are granted by Government – and therefore that Government (i.e. the elite at the top) may take them all away if it deems so. Such a balance of power is inherently tyrannical. To deny that humans are born with or come to Earth with intrinsic rights is to deny the basic worthiness of a person – and to set up a situation where they can become enslaved later on in life.

(As an aside, one of the 3 most notorious conspiracy documents ever written, in my opinion, was The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. Towards the end of the document the writers admit that the World Government they are trying to install is collectivist.)

Below is a quote from the official UN Charter:

Chapter II, Article 5:

UN Security Council may suspend rights and privileges

“A Member of the United Nations against which preventive or enforcement action has been taken by the Security Council may be suspended from the exercise of the rights and privileges of membership by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council. The exercise of these rights and privileges may be restored by the Security Council.”

And which members comprise the UN Security Council? There are 5 permanent members (US, Britain, France, Russia and China), all of whom have historically had governments which have experimented upon, tortured, killed and committed genocide against their own citizens, and citizens from other countries.

As Edward Griffin write in his book The Fearful Master: A Second Look at the United Nations:

” … the UN assumes that the Charter is vague and broad enough so as to authorize it to do absolutely everything! This concept of unlimited power was made absolutely clear when the UN World Court declared: “Under international law, the organization [the UN] must be deemed to have those powers which, though not expressly provided in the Charter, are conferred upon it by necessary implication as being essential to the performance of its duties.” “

The Collectivist 2015 UN Summit Draws Closer …

There you have it. The collectivist foundation of the UN has always been in diametric opposition to the individualistic foundation of the US. The UN was set up to be able to administer and oversee (i.e. control) everything from your state of health to your housing. The US Federal Government was set up with strict limits on how much it could do (especially in the 9th and 10th Amendments of the Bill of Rights).

As the 2015 UN Summit draw closer, it would be well worth revisiting what kind of world we want to live in, before it is overtaken by a collectivist New World Order.

Jeff Nielson: The Complete Criminalization Of Our System (VIDEO)

cashless society

[If you really study the patterns] you can actually see when they turn on and off the algorithm program used to manipulate the gold and silver markets.  – Jeff Nielson, Shadow of Truth

Rule of Law has been completely abandoned by the Government and business elite.  What remains is a citizenry in this country that has been largely dumbed-down and taught to ignore or deny the reality unfolding right before its eyes.

What’s left is an elitist club of political and corporate “leaders” who are using every possible means to keep our system from collapsing, enabling them to steal or confiscate every last crumb of middle class wealth.  If you don’t have enough spare cash to own your own Washington, DC politician, you are middle class – you are not part of “The Club.”

The Shadow of Truth hosted a fascinating conversation (at least we found it fascinating) with Jeff Nielson, of Bullion Bulls Canada.

The lies are getting bigger and bigger to the point at which they are now ludicrous or even perverse.

The conversation ranged from the proposals by criminal Keynesian “economists” to abolish cash currency to Jeff’s “One Bank” concept.

With 46% of all transactions by volume in the U.S. conducted using cash – 23% by value – converting to an electronic digital currency system would turn our lives upside down. But more insidiously, it would give the Government a lot more control over your life, not to mention the fact that it would make it very easy for the Government to impose a bail-in of the banking system when that inevitability occurs.

Unfortunately, the majority of the zombie-like Americans will likely just shrug it off when the move is made to abolish cash, just like our citizens shrugged off the Patriot Act and ignored the imposition of the NSA into our lives.

Jeff’s “One Bank” concept is based on the fact that a cabal of utlra-wealthy bankers, businessmen and media moguls largely control the western financial and political systems.  Jeff explains the idea and how it functions. In my mind, it all starts at the top with the Bank for International Settlements – the BIS.

The discussion includes whether or not the Government will eventually make gold and silver illegal and try to confiscate the public’s bullion.  Jeff sees it as an inevitability and necessary to support a fully electronic currency system.

Without question Jeff is highly intelligent, well thought out and articulate. Whether or not you agree with some or all of his ideas, we can assure you that you will find this discussion to be thought-provoking.

We begin our conversation with Jeff Nielson of Bullion Bulls Canada discussing the cashless society the criminal banking cabal is attempting to foist upon the world. Will they be successful?

What I can’t understand is why these criminals would want to give up the drug money laundering operation. The international drug trade accounts for 8% of total global trade. Think about that for a minute. The profits from laundering that volume of cash has to be enormous. What about the 46% of transactions, by volume, in United States that are still conducted using cash? 23% of the value of all transactions in U.S. is conducted using cash. It would make sense that with this sheer volume of hard currency floating around that if the criminal banking cabal forces us into a digital nightmare the black and gray markets would absolutely explode. The statistics that were just pointed out would support this thought. The people that are conducting their lives using hard currency are not going to simply stop doing that. These are for legitimate transactions. These percentages do not, to my knowledge, take into account the illegal drug trade that was just pointed out the criminal banking cabal is making huge profits.

The New Deal Built The New World Order

Three Marxists plotting the NWO. Commies have much in common.

Three Marxists plotting the NWO. Commies have much in common.

The New Deal had its feet of clay mired “one in the Red mud of Soviet communism and the other in the stinking cesspool of pagan plutocracy.” – Father Coughlin 

When a nation fails to learn the true history of its past, the people are doomed to reside within a fairy tale of delusions. Once that deception becomes ingrained into the popular culture, the task of the tyrant simplifies. How soon the country is transformed into a civic ordeal and betrayal of principle and heritage. Then, the masses cling to the big lie as fact; the new gospel for the social order becomes transformed into a somber reality. Finally, only the very few question its veracity.

Most of us were born into a society that abandoned the essence of our founding country. The quiet revolution that destroyed America was conducted in full view and sanctified with government attainment. The past was buried without a solemn ceremony and the New Deal was born to reconstruct a fatherland upon the ashes of the American experience. The mother’s milk of this overthrow in fundamental values was based upon the Marxism of patrician traitors. FDR was the supreme socialist. His ideal was the total destruction of the balanced “Federalism” that shared power, affirmed State’s Rights and respected individual Liberty.

The blind and mentally deficient refuse to face the record of treachery that Roosevelt imposed. The deformed dictator shared a collective identity with Stalin, a lust for power that approached Hitler and a deceit only surpassed by Churchill. All four were allies of Socialism. Only slender degrees of separation and fabricated nuances of emphasis disguise their mutual love for totalitarian control over their own country and global vision.

The New Deal is pure Socialism. Communists are proud of their involvement with FDR: “When the Great Depression of the 1930s created conditions that made working-class victories both possible and necessary, if reaction and fascism was to be defeated, Communists were at the center of building of the new unions of the CIO, and providing the grassroots force that propelled the New Deal government of Franklin Roosevelt, the most advanced government of non-socialist reform in U.S. history, to enact social security and unemployment insurance, minimum wages and the 40-hour week, and create the National Labor Relations Board to protect workers rights to form unions and other major reforms.”

For citizens to look kindly upon Roosevelt and the mutated expansion patrimony of central planning, requires a total ignorance why the Revolution of 1776 was fought and the distrust and fears that founding patriots had towards an all powerful central government. When FDR’s close advisor Douglas said: “The present pseudo-planned economy leads relentlessly into the complete autocracy and tyranny of the Collectivist State”, it was one of the few honest statements made during the New Deal.

Examine the real historic record of the New Deal and ask if the prospects of liberty and the pursuit of happiness were fostered by the alphabet soup federal agencies that converted our free enterprise and voluntary association country into a system of federal despotic command and control?

The core hoax of the last century is that the government is a force for reform that leads to improvement in the condition of ordinary citizens. The New Deal was a coup d’état designed by plutocrats, for installing an oligarchy, to achieve an autocracy, administered by quisling bureaucrats. The Wilsonian internationalist hallucination was consummated by Roosevelt. FDR was a Commie soul mate – Liberal Democrat style – of Uncle Joe.

FDR defined Freedom of Speech as Stalin did, i.e. he used the Marxist formulation ‘Freedom of Information’ in his speeches.

FDR pressed a bill to eliminate the right to bear arms, the guarantee of all others.

FDR told Churchill that “an unwritten Constitution is better than a written one.” When reminded there was the Constitution, FDR said after his 1936 inauguration “Yes, but it’s the Constitution as I understand it – flexible enough (to do what he wanted).” He admiringly told Churchill that Stalin didn’t have to worry about Congresses and Parliaments, “he’s the whole works.” In a letter to a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, FDR wrote- “I hope your committee will not permit doubt as to Constitutionality, however reasonable, to block the suggested legislation.”

FDR did not believe in Constitutional checks and balances – he tried to destroy and was prepared to defy the Supreme Court and Congress. He did not believe in advise and consent or the rule of law – he waged war and made treaties without Congressional approval. He did not believe in representative democracy and often said that since Congress did not reflect the will of the people they should be ignored.

Probably the best exposition of FDR’s procedures regarding the rule of law vs the rule of men was said by his top deputy, KGB agent Harry Hopkins, to his aides – “I want to assure you that we are not afraid of exploring anything within the law, and we have here a lawyer who will declare anything you want to do legal.”

FDR defined democracy just as Joseph Stalin did – as the mere act of voting.

The current crop of brainwashed trolls that praise Social Security as an enlightened benefit and Medicaid as advanced social compassion are already countered among the walking dead. Youth are indoctrinated to accept a Marxist orientation by prodigy freaks for a Satanic State. Black roped oppressors enforce the mandates of the temple of doom and incarcerate anyone they deem a vigilante. The legacy of the New Deal conditioned the fools to accept the New World Order.

Most inhabitants of the United States relish their subservient status and enthusiastically embrace their captivity. The most common attitude is that the world has become a global village for housing the thralls in a benign gulag. Accept your role, enjoy your condition and praise your masters . . . As long as any vestige of the New Deal is considered legitimate, the prospects for restoring a true Republic are futile. The notion of social benefits is abhorrent to any self respecting person. Government management by bribes is insulting. Conformity and coercion are inevitable when people relinquish their natural rights to oppose seduction from the rapist.

The incremental transformation into a global union under the rule of master elites has switched into high gear. FDR was a devil dining on the carcasses of manipulated naive citizens. What’s your excuse? Your parents and grandparents bought into the lie, so don’t claim any pretext that the next evolution into the New World Order will be beneficial. All Communists are Statists, every Fascist is a Statist and every form of Socialism is Statism. Each are un-American, the New Deal set the stage for the NWO.

The tone and tendency of liberalism…is to attack the institutions of the country under the name of reform and to make war on the manners and customs (and freedom) of the people under the pretext of progress.” – Disraeli, “Speech in London”

Why Elites Love Drones

drone-strike
By: Robert J. Burrowes

I sometimes read that drone strikes are counterproductive to western security interests because each person killed by a drone results in more new ‘terrorists’. See, for example, ‘The more civilians US drones kill in the Mideast, the more radicals they create’. http://rt.com/op-edge/252705-drone-operation-us-strategy-military/.

However, this analysis completely fails to understand what is driving elite military policy, carried out by the United States elite and key elite allies within NATO and elsewhere. In brief: drone strikes work precisely because they provoke violent responses which help elites to ‘justify’ their perpetual war to secure control of the world’s diminishing supplies of fossil fuels, water and strategic minerals while tightening control of domestic populations through expansion of the security and surveillance state.

Elites want more violence. They are unconcerned that innocent civilians are killed. In fact, they kill civilians deliberately. See, for example, ‘Israel “directly targeted” children in drone strikes on Gaza, says rights group’ http://electronicintifada.net/blogs/rania-khalek/israel-directly-targeted-children-drone-strikes-gaza-says-rights-group and ‘41 men targeted but 1,147 people killed: US drone strikes – the facts on the ground’. http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2014/nov/24/-sp-us-drone-strikes-kill-1147.

Violence, particularly by demonised ‘others’ who often have to be seriously provoked into responding with violence, makes it easier to scare domestic populations into accepting restraints on their civil liberties, massive military expenditure at the cost of domestic social and environmental programs, military attacks against innocent ‘foreigners’ and massive profits for those few corporations and individuals who benefit from military spending.

Attacks by drones on innocent civilians, such as wedding parties in Afghanistan, serve the purpose of provoking retaliatory responses brilliantly. And by not mentioning the violence that provokes the retaliations while emphasising the retaliations themselves, elites and their agents are able to ‘justify’ western military policy for those not paying much attention or gullible enough to believe the warped perspective presented by compliant academics and the corporate media.

So do elites want to kill people just to make a profit? No. It’s not that simple. Elites want to kill people because they are insane. See ‘The Global Elite is Insane’.

http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO1402/S00056/the-global-elite-is-insane.htm.

If you think this is overstated, it is only because you have spent a lifetime unconsciously adjusting to absurd and dysfunctional behaviours that you could not explain: an outcome of suffering the ‘invisible’ and ‘utterly invisible’ violence that adults inflicted on you during your childhood. See ‘Why Violence?’ http://tinyurl.com/whyviolence and ‘Fearless Psychology and Fearful Psychology: Principles and Practice’. http://anitamckone.wordpress.com/articles-2/fearless-and-fearful-psychology/.

Until we participate in comprehensive strategies to resist elite (and other) violence exclusively with strategically applied nonviolence, we will continue to be their ‘complementary doubles’, and thus victims, in the use of violence. Activists, scholars and others who do not realise this are simply playing into elite hands.

Of course, having the emotional and intellectual capacity to resist violence with strategically applied nonviolence is a big ‘ask’ of anyone. But while our fear gets in the way of us learning how to intelligently analyse and strategically resist the psychology that drives violence, we condemn ourselves to perpetual victimhood and assist elite efforts to victimise us even further.

While we play the game by elite rules and rely on violence to confront them, we ensure our own defeat: the military-nuclear-industrial complex is under their control and the smaller weapons we have at our disposal are only useful as tools for them to use to scare us into fighting each other or to justify their violent attacks, including by their police, on us.

If you are interested in devoting your emotional and intellectual capacities to a strategy that makes violence irrelevant in the medium term, you might consider signing the online pledge of ‘The People’s Charter to Create a Nonviolent World’ http://thepeoplesnonviolencecharter.wordpress.com and participating in ‘The Flame Tree Project to Save Life on Earth’. http://tinyurl.com/flametree. And if you want to develop nonviolent strategies to resist elite military violence, see The Strategy of Nonviolent Defense: A Gandhian Approach. http://www.sunypress.edu/p-2176-the-strategy-of-nonviolent-defe.aspx.

We might fail. But I would prefer to implement a strategy that can work rather than repeat, for the umpteenth time, a strategy that history teaches us never works. And history does teach us that violence never works although elites work hard to convince us that, in this or that context, violence succeeded.

This is a delusion. Violence always sows the seeds for the next bout of violence (World War I led to World War II which led to …) and/or shifts the violence to the structural domain (where, for example, economic structures cause poverty) and/or the cultural domain (so that, for example, ‘ending’ slavery in the US gave way to institutionalised racism).

So I invite you to consider participating in a comprehensive strategy that is designed to undermine violence, in all of its manifestations, and to break the cycle that is driving us to extinction.

The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. once said: ‘The enemy is violence.’ But I believe the true enemy is our fear: the fear of nonviolently resisting violence, in all of its manifestations. Are you afraid?

Theft By Lawful Taking: The End Of liberty.

Policing-for-Profit
By Brooks A. Agnew |

True story. Jason posted his aluminum, flat bottom fishing boat and a sturdy trailer on Craigslist. Within a couple of days, he got a call from a buyer in the city of Raleigh, about three hours away and made the arrangements to drive it there to make the sale.

On the day of sale, the buyer counted out $5,500 in cash, Jason signed the title over, and he happily collected his Bill of Sale. He didn’t fish much since the birth of his first son and wanted this money for remodeling his bonus room into a kid’s playroom. He and his wife had discussed the ideas for nearly six months, and both agreed that the driveway would look so much better without the olive camouflaged boat.

That is, until he reached a checkpoint at the freeway onramp. “License and registration, please,” said the officer. Jason complied, now really in a good mood in anticipation of making his first trip to Lowe’s for the building materials. His previous job as a carpenter would come in handy, and it would really feel good to get some sawdust in his hair, he thought.

“Okay, thanks. Hey, how much money is that sitting on the console there?” Asked the policeman as he leaned in to see though the open driver’s window.

“There’s $5,500 cash, officer. I just sold my boat,” responded Jason courteously.

“Step out of the car, please,” said the officer coldly.

The instant Jason was clear of the door, the office reached in and grabbed the bundle of cash and stepped back from the vehicle. Jason’s heart came up in his throat, as the officer began walking toward his cruiser with his money and motioning to his team to move toward him. A rush of panic flushed through him as he felt he had just been robbed.

Jason never saw his money again. The perpetrating officer explained that his cash was probable cause that a crime had taken place and that it was being apprehended under the Civil Forfeiture Act. “There is a lot of drug traffic that goes up and down this freeway every day,” the officer said like he was trying to sell rationalize his larceny. Although Jason had a Bill of Sale, produced numerous witnesses, and a crying wife pregnant with their second child, the police department was permitted to keep his cash forever. After spending nearly $2 thousand in attorney costs, Jason and his wife gave up any chance of recovering from the event.

This happens in every State now, except New Mexico. Republican Gov. Susana Martinez signed a new bill ending the unconstitutional practice of stealing the property of law abiding citizens by law enforcement. New Mexico police must now convict you of a crime and prove your property was used in the crime before you forfeit it to the authorities. Also, the money gained from the property will now go to the state’s general fund instead of police budgets, so that police do not have incentives to take from citizens.

In every other State, the police are trained that cash is probable cause. Don’t be surprised if police include an inquiry as to how much money you have on you the next time you are stopped. If you are stopped, questioned, and frisked by a police officer, and he feels a wad of cash in your pocket, he has the authority to take your money.

If you are in the habit of taking your paycheck to the bank every Friday and holding out a little cash every week for the weekend and spending money, be aware that your friendly window teller is now an informant for the DHS. Once you have taken a total of $5,000 or more from your paychecks, the teller is obligated to inform the Department Of Homeland Security. The police may be notified to find you and search you for that cash. This may include your home, car, or gym locker. If the cash cannot be located, the IRS may seize your remaining funds from your account.

If you obtain your money from sources that are not local, for example a consultant working out of state for months at a time, then all the funds in your local bank may be seized by the State Department of Revenue. Even if you prove that you paid taxes on the funds, and even if they are direct deposited from the company for whom you are working, they will seize the funds, and you will never see them again.

Americans are under siege from all sides by a Federal Agency government. Americans must take precautions as though they are in a Fascist regime that is searching for dissenters or those who may get the idea that they can escape the system of oppression. If you have cash, you are capable of liberty. Liberty is being expunged from the nation in leaps and bounds now.

In the 2006 landmark Amazon best-selling publication The Ark of Millions of Years: Volume Two, the plan to rid America of cash was disclosed. Turning cash into contraband through Federal mandates igniting the insatiable greed of local precincts was a stroke of genius. It wipes the president’s fingerprints off the insidious plan to capture America without firing a single shot.

The book argues that the process will be an easy sale by a Plutarchian press. This will end the war on drugs. It will stop illegal immigrants from entering the country. It will allow much better control over inflation and recessions. It will eliminate the cost of printing and guaranteeing the integrity of the paper money itself. It will prevent tax evasion, and identity theft, and endless larcenies. The American shopper has been well-trained, now. You never know how much you might need, right?

Almost no one carries cash now. Americans spend 30% more when they have a credit card instead of a debit card, as well. You can’t rent a car, book a hotel room, or do a host of other activities now with cash. And those insidious little price discount numbers at the grocery. “You saved $8.35 today by using your MVP card,” the cute little checkout girl says.

But, those green beans, and the coffee, and the cigarettes you bought are now cataloged to your name and social security number. Your risk for health issues, along with your age and sex, and being analyzed for risks. This will be integrated with Obamacare so that your future burden on the system and eligibility for benefits can be determined.

Without cash there is no escape. Without a method of escape, there is no liberty. Without liberty, the entire idea that was America is gone forever.

This Is What It Will Look Like When The Elite Wage War In America (VIDEO)

government surveillance

We are literally hanging on by a thread! While many here in America rest in their apathetic state, others are wide awake to the battle that is what is happening all around them. It’s not a battle with weaponry or military armor yet, but it is a real battle none the less.

The truth is there is a war being waged by the elite against the populace and it is so subtle that many in America don’t even realize they are under attack and sadly, they won’t until it’s too late!!

In the video below I dive through the “secret” war taking place behind the scenes and how things are about to get out of hand!!!

Here is the breaking report…..

Chris Powell: Gold Is The Deadly Threat To All Governments (VIDEO)

gold

We open this podcast with Charlie Chaplin’s speech from “The Dictator.“ It is one of the most powerful speeches ever given. It ranks with the likes of Dr. King’s “I have a Dream” and a handful of other truly great speeches that were designed to uplift the spirit, free the mind and announce to the world we are all sovereign human beings created to do great things with our lives.

For over 15 years, Chris Powell – the co-founder of GATA – has been in the trenches exposing the corruption deeply embedded in our financial and political system. Chris has been a staunch promoter of free markets and reduced Government power. The cornerstone of democracy and true freedom begins with honest money. Gold stands alone a honest because it does not rely and counterparty risk and it can not be printed and devalued.

Because of this inherent nature in the use of gold as currency, gold stands as threat to a Government’s ability to dictate.

Gold is the deadly threat to all governments, including the Chinese government. Gold is a free market independent currency and puts all government currency at risk. Is China really working in the gold market for free markets and democracy and individual liberty around the world? No, I don’t think so. China, I think, is mainly working to hedge it’s stupid U.S. dollar exposure. – Chris Powell, Shadow of Truth

The gold community, in general, is very excited about the prospects of China and the new gold fix that will be launched sometime in 2015. Most of the speculation is around the September timeframe, but most assuredly before years end. After speaking with Chris about China and this seemingly important change in the global pricing mechanism, our optimism is waning. Let’s just say there has been a dose of reality served up.

I don’t kid myself that China is working for the benefit of us goldbugs here in the West. I think China is working for power for the Chinese government. Now, does the Chinese government want a higher gold price or a lower gold price or does the Chinese government just want to control the gold price as much as Western governments want to control it for different reasons? In 1974 Kissinger and his Deputy Secretary Thomas Enders discussed how the United States must persuade the European countries to keep moving gold out of the world financial system because whoever has the most gold controls it’s valuation and whoever controls golds valuation controls the valuation of government currencies. – Chris Powell, Shadow of Truth

This is an incredible interview with Chris Powell. Dare we say that he was “on fire.”

I’d say almost all the major ones (mainstream media) in the United States and Europe. Every major financial news organization in the West has all this documentation (regarding gold market manipulation) It just can not be acknowledged as an issue. Any journalist that picked up the gold price suppression issue would be fired.

I don’t think the power of Central Banks to create infinite money is their greatest advantage right now. I think their greatest advantage right now is either their control of the mainstream financial news media or the timidity of the mainstream financial news media. This story is just the Emperors New Clothes.

There is very likely an arrangement, an understanding, among the world’s major Central Banks that is redistributing the worlds gold, right now, the debtor nations to the creditor nations to allow the creditor nations to hedge themselves against an evadible devaluation of the dollar.

He (Jim Rickards) has said, over the last year, a number of times. That from his meetings with government officials, Central Bank officials, elected officials, officials of the International Monetary Fund that there is, some, more or less formal arrangement, understanding between the United States and China. Whereby, China agrees not to dump it’s Treasuries while the United States agrees facilitate the flow of gold into China at a discounted price.

Rickards has been on record, on several occasions, stating that gold would be revalued to approximately $9,000 per ounce. According to Millars report, there is already in place, a plan to revalue gold by 7 to 10 times. Gold is currently, approximately, $1,200 per ounce, multiply that by 7 and you get $8,400 per ounce. A multiple of 10 and you have $12,000 per ounce.

Will The Real Presidency Please Stand Up?

United
By: Brooks A. Agnew |

America was ratified in 1789 and has been the greatest experiment in human liberty the world has ever known. Since 1855, Republicans have controlled the government with a president, congressional and senatorial majorities for only 46 years. Under Democrat leadership and control, the US has been through 5 major wars, 74 ongoing wars, and stolen the inheritance of every single American for three generations in the future.

82 years ago, a change occurred in the organization of governmental powers. That is to say, the balance was corrupted. The banking industry collapsed the money supply after a decade of unprecedented growth, causing the Great Depression in 1929. It occurred on Hoover’s presidential watch. Although he used his engineering genius to try to solve the problem, Republicans only held a slight majority in both houses, giving Progressives the political strength to thwart every effort to recover quickly. Why? Well, they had a plan.

In 1932, the flamboyant and popular governor of New York was marketed as the man of the hour. He was elected without any problem against what was propagandized as Hoover’s failed economy. Within days of his inauguration, he implemented a new government. It was like dehydrated government in a sealed box. All that was needed was to add money, and a dozen new bureaucracies were staffed and funded. The Soviets moved in with the Administration.

They had a plan to use carefully engineered litigation to slowly build a new government that would be prepared for a future president. In 2001, the Agency Government’s power was tested for resilience. President Bush violated the first ten Amendments of the Constitution by creating a catalog of new Agencies with sweeping powers generating an avalanche of new regulations, each that had the force of law. Within 8 years, he had gone to war with two more countries, seized control of every airport on the planet that connects to the US, and created a standing army inside the country. Still, his Administration was not fully engaged to its real potential for tyranny. For that, there would have to be a new type of president.

In 2008, Barack Hussein Obama burst onto the scene like a movie character. He had no past. He had no resume. He had never done anything for anyone, except himself. His speeches were written for him. His agenda was more ancient than Marxism and was designed to melt the greatest nation in history into just another Fascist oligarchy. He was like a robot, able to say exactly what the people wanted to hear at precisely the right tempo and pitch. Since the script was so perfectly designed, an old, tired, sickly white man named John McCain was easily swept aside like yellowed confetti. It was the perfect formula for discouraging anyone from vetting the slightest thing about Mr. Obama. No one even cared where he was born.

Within 12 months, Mr. Obama destroyed the power of Congress and his cronies in the Senate preventing any challenge to his agenda. He slashed at the military, replacing hundreds of the most experienced flag officers with academics loyal to his plan. Within 3 years, he took complete control of the Agency Government, and used it mercilessly against his enemies and to help his friends. The IRS was assigned to block non-profits who would oppose him with advertisements and public reports and to audit into extinction anyone who would speak against him. More than 90% of the trillions in stimulus funds were handed out to campaign supporters and financial contributors as a return on their investment in his presidency.

He brazenly appointed agency Secretaries without the advice and consent of the Senate, in direct violation of the Constitution. Although declared to be illegal by the Supreme Court, these illegal appointees remained in office for over a year, fully implementing a master plan to invade the United States with millions of illegal immigrants, provide them with union protection, and the right to vote in national elections without citizenship. That plan has been followed without effective opposition for 6 years and shows no sign of being abated in the foreseeable future. Agencies tasked with the duty to protect the borders of America have been ordered to stand down, while an illegal immigrant enters our country every 30 seconds, 24 hours a day.

Congress has tried 3 times to block Mr. Obama’s agenda, but the ownership of the main stream media has been illegally consolidated into less than 6 Progressive companies, all controlled from within the White House like a master propaganda machine able to convince the American public that Congress is trying to prevent progress. Each time attempts have been made to curtail the government’s lustful spending, Congress is pummeled in the press until their approval rating is less than hemorrhoids.

The president has most recently marshaled his new army, a special blend of militarized police, NSA data mining, and federal troops all working together on American soil. Although neither a report on the size of this army, nor a single word on to whom this army might answer, have been offered, the manpower and equipment have been spread across the battle front for all to see. Billions of rounds of ammunition, space-based weapons, lethal and non-lethal small arms, and the world’s most sophisticated and prolific surveillance system have now been fully implemented and tested. The battle front is now known, and the resolve of the President has been well publicized. He has shown his ability to assassinate people in dozens of countries, even if they are Americans. Even the day the battle will begin has been made known to the country.

The only thing the American people don’t know for sure? Who is the enemy?

The enemy is not 51 million immigrants that are consuming trillions in tax dollar benefits. The enemy is not ISIS, a masked marketing plan to make Americans believe there is a reason to always be at war. The new enemy is so elusive and so feared that it has become the number one priority for every plane, every missile, and every bullet on every hip the President can command.

Mr. Obama tells us the new enemy is carbon. The Pentagon says the enemy is a specially crafted soldier called the homegrown terrorist or the sovereign citizen. This soldier is profiled as one who owns a gun and believes in the Constitution. He may go to church. He doesn’t vote often, but when he does, he usually votes Republican. The prospect of facing this armed American may be the most frightening in history. The entire US armed forces could not beat a few, rag tag fighters with no Air Force, no Navy, and certainly no satellite intel. They are running around on dirt bikes or in old pickup trucks with hand-me-down light arms. But the idea of hundreds of millions of guns in the hands of tens of millions of highly trained veterans is daunting to any conquering force. It could be the only thing that has kept the concept of unalienable liberty alive for more than 200 years.

If you own a gun, you are the enemy. If you store emergency food, you are the enemy. If you listen to Fox News or visit alternative news sites, you are the enemy. If you reload your own ammunition, you are conducting illegal manufacturing of lethal devices. If you ever spoke on the phone, emailed, tweeted, or visited a Facebook or Internet site on the subject of federal tyranny or State’s rights, you have been already identified as the enemy.

We may only have one chance to stop the destruction of the idea called America. We may only have this one, last election in 2016. Dinesh D’Souza warned us all in his film Obama: 2016 about the Islamic State being crafted globally. And so it is with the utmost solemnity that I make this one plea to the next Presidential candidate.

I urge you to put together and announce your entire team now. Choose your running mate and your entire cabinet. Meet with your team and craft your entire agenda and bring it before the American people as your united campaign. Traditionally, it has been one person, a man or woman—or these days it could very well be “other”—that sits in the Red corner on election day.

But you can change all that. You can be a team of real champions and leaders in the other corner. Announce your force of Secretaries now. Let them each hit the campaign trail with you speaking of their agenda with the Agency they are about to lead. Let them share their coordinated plan for balancing the budget and for getting out of the lives of the American people.

Is it legal? Yes. Is it ethical? Absolutely! Is it what America needs right now? She will not survive without it. There are many excellent leaders who would be willing to serve in these capacities and can unite and repair and replace the Agency government with a representative government of, by, and for the people again.

Don’t slash each other to pieces on national television for a year of wasteful primaries. Decide now! Join your intelligences together and solidify the party as one team. You are running against the wealthiest, most corrupt and greedy power the world has ever known. Not even Hillary and her billions in paid influence could beat that team.

Government’s Share Of Minimum Wage Increase

min wage share

The working poor suffer disproportionately from the offshoring of high paying jobs. The upsurge an hour in the minimum wage economy is the net result of a consorted effort to lower the standard of living of not just the struggling impoverished but for all scrambling households. When the communist manifesto advocated a progressive income tax, the proletariat was supposed to get a sliver of social justice. Just how well did that hogwash turn out? 

The practice of upward mobility is virtually extinct. As the broken economic model intensifies, the consequences of 20.7% of Jobs in Baltimore Are Government Jobs, should be apparent. 

“Of the 364,200 total jobs in Baltimore City in March, 75,500—or 20.7 percent—were jobs working for the government. That included 39,400 state government jobs, 26,000 local government jobs, and 10,100 federal government jobs.

By contrast, there were only 11,600 manufacturing jobs in Baltimore City, according to BLS. That means government had 6.5 times as many employees in Baltimore City as all of the manufacturers located in the city. 

Nationwide in March, according to the BLS, total employment was 141,183,000. Employment by government was 21,898,000. Thus, 15.5 percent of the jobs nationwide were government jobs.” 

stats wages

Add to these stats, the Bureau of Labor Statistics states that Minimum wage workers account for 4.7 percent of hourly paid workers in 2012. The accompanying chart illustrates that teens and women compile a greater number of minimum wage employment.  

“In 2012, there were 3.6 million hourly paid workers in the United States with wages at or below the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. These workers made up 4.7 percent of the 75.3 million workers age 16 and over who were paid at hourly rates.” 

Such lower opportunity entry level jobs are disturbing when the odds are that these workers will not be able to advance into more lucrative positions. Raising by government fiat an arbitrary minimum pay floor is naïve without fundamental changes to the entire tax system.  

Net take home pay is the bottom line. Economic analysis of the real world effects from punitive taxation implications usually goes under reported or ignored completely. The American Enterprise Institute in an essay, Some minimum wage workers would face a 50% tax rate if Obama an floord Dems raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, will shock the open minded. 

“Forbes contributor Jeffrey Dorfman crunches the numbers and finds that a single mom (with one child) working at the minimum wage would face the equivalent of a 50% tax rate (from both higher payroll taxes and a loss in government benefits) if Obama is successful at raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. Here’s how some minimum wage workers would be taxed at a higher rate than the “top 1%” by Obama’s “compassionate” 40% minimum wage hike:” 

Examine this research and consider the sober implications that any society that intentionally restricts a market opportunity financial system will result in a permanent poverty underachieving economy.  

Finally, David R. Henderson of the National Center of Policy Analysis provides evidence that Most of the Benefits of a Minimum Wage Increase Would Not Go to Poor Households. 

“From 2003 to 2009, the federal hourly minimum wage rose in steps from $5.15 to $5.85, and then from $6.55 to $7.25. Between 2003 and 2007, 28 states increased their minimum wages to a level higher than the federal minimum. San Diego State University economics professor Joseph J. Sabia and Cornell University economics professor Richard V. Burkhauser examined the effects of these increases and reported their results in the prestigious Southern Economic Journal.1 They “find no evidence that minimum wage increases between 2003 and 2007 lowered state poverty rates.”  

This pre 2008 meltdown evaluation has worsened since the zero interest rate and no small business loan environment has intensified. The Campaign to begin for a $15 minimum wage in D.C. is misguided. Without supporting a total revamp of the federal, state and local tax system, disappointment is inevitable.  

Since the central planning intrusion of government has created greater poverty, would not a prudent population start looking toward a better alternative? 

One such substitute is a Fair Tax based upon consumption. A central and primary method to grow employment and even more important, create living wage positions, is to adopt a merchant economy. 

Big business has never been the engine of substantial and continual growth. Unless the velocity of money transacted in voluntary business decisions opens up, the future will be relegated to subsistence level, at best. 

In order to broaden a prosperous society, the private sector must be able to innovate, produce and expand. Labor that works for wages must develop the skills to make their contributions to their employers more valuable. That’s reality; and if one sincerely wants to lift the boot straps of the underclass, starts with a dose of candor. 

When a government tax policy confiscates the earned rewards of honest work and promises to offer public substitute benefits that are on a sliding downward scale of efficiency and value, only a fool will accept that this formula will offer a chance to claw out of the poverty cycle. 

The fact that most consumers are guarded in spending, what little disposable money their meager income allows, is core to this hamster wheel economy.  

Confidence will not return, when the government continues to be the primary obstacle for keeping people on the treadmill.  

Corporatists have done their best to destroy the middle class. They will never provide a solution for the underprivileged. Government’s record is even worse. Those who will survive in the controlled economy will work towards conducting free enterprise among the enlightened consumers who understand that a brighter future is achieved through intelligent and perseverance. Thoughtless demands for a $15.00 an hour minimum just because one needs more money only results in higher unemployment.

Government Using Subprime Mortgages To Pump Housing Recovery – Taxpayers Will Pay Again

homeowners swimming in debt

By: The Burning Platform |

It seems hard to believe, but your government is purposely recreating the mortgage debacle of 2007 and putting you on the hook for the billions in losses coming down the road. In their frantic effort to generate the appearance of economic recovery they are willing to gamble with taxpayer’s money while luring unsuspecting blue collar folks into buying houses they can’t afford. During the previous housing bubble, greedy Wall Street bankers, deceitful mortgage brokers, and corrupt rating agencies colluded to commit the greatest control fraud in the history of mankind. This time it is your government, aided and abetted by the Federal Reserve, that is actively promoting the lending of money to people incapable of paying it back. And again, you the taxpayer will be on the hook when it predictably blows up.

The FHA, created during the first Great Depression, is supposed to be self-sustaining through mortgage insurance premiums charged to homeowners, just like Fannie, Freddie, Medicare, Social Security, and student loan lending were supposed to be self- sustaining through taxes, fees, and interest. This agency was supposed to promote homeownership for lower income Americans, but has been used by politicians as a tool to capture votes, payoff crony capitalist benefactors, and as a Keynesian stimulus tool designed to kindle a fake housing recovery. They entered the fray at the tail end of the last Fed/Wall Street created housing bubble, insuring a huge number of subprime mortgage loans from 2007 through 2009. The taxpayer has already had to bail out this incompetent, politically motivated, joke of an agency to the tune of $1.7 billion in 2014.

Edward J. Pinto, a former Fannie Mae official, estimates that under standard accounting practices the agency is already insolvent to the tune of $25 billion. Mark to fantasy accounting hasn’t just benefitted the criminal Wall Street cabal, but also the bloated pig government housing agencies – Fannie, Freddie and the FHA. The FHA’s share of new loans with mortgage insurance stood at 16.4% in 2005 and currently stands at 44.3%. This is a ridiculously high level considering the percentage of first time home buyers is near all-time lows and low income buyers have lower real median household income than they had in 2005. Distinguished congresswoman Maxine Waters, who once declared: “We do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac, and particularly Fannie Mae, under the outstanding leadership of Frank Raines.”, prior to them imploding and costing taxpayers $187 billion in losses, thinks the FHA is doing a bang up job. Her financial acumen is unquestioned, so you can expect another bailout in the near future.

“Above all, we must strive to have a healthy, viable FHA that can continue to facilitate homeownership for first-time and low-income home buyers, while standing ready in the unfortunate event of another housing downturn.”

How could politically motivated government apparatchiks insuring subprime mortgages with down payments of 3.5%, using weak underwriting standards, easing restrictions on borrowers with past foreclosures, in a housing market poised to drop by 20% when this next Fed/Wall Street housing bubble pops possibly go wrong? The entire faux housing recovery, which has driven average home prices up 30% since 2012, has been driven on the high end by The Wall Street hedge fund buy foreclosures in bulk and rent scheme, along with hot money cash from Chinese and Russian oligarchs, while the low end is being propped up by Fannie, Freddie, and the FHA with their brilliant idea to insure 3.5% down payment mortgages to future foreclosure aspirants.

We have the employment to population ratio at 35 year lows. We have had stagnant real wage growth since 2008 as low paying service Obama jobs have replaced higher paying production jobs. We have real median household income at 1989 levels and still 9% below the 2008 peak. We have mortgage applications 56% below the 2005 peak and hovering at 1996 levels. We still have 4 million homeowners underwater in their mortgages. We have housing starts languishing 40% below the long-term average. We have the home ownership rate of 63.8% at quarter of a century lows. We have mortgage rates at all-time lows. And we have home prices soaring far above the inflation rate and wages because the Federal Reserve, in collaboration with the Federal government decided to create another housing bubble (along with stock and bond bubbles) to rectify the disastrous consequences of their last housing bubble.

This is the absolute perfect point in time when the FHA thinks it is necessary for them to lure low income, low IQ, credit challenged dupes into the housing market. Risky mortgages are increasingly being underwritten by thinly capitalized non-banks and guaranteed by the FHA. In 2012 the large Wall Street banks represented 65.4% of FHA-backed loans. That number is now 29.6%, as even the risk seeking Wall Street criminal banks have come to their senses and realize loaning money to people that won’t be able to repay them will end badly – AGAIN. In their place, dodgy mortgage brokers (non-banks) now represent 62.2% of the FHA lending. Of course, once these low life mortgage brokers make the loans, Wall Street will package them, get a AAA rating from their bitches at S&P or Moodys, and then peddle them to yield seeking pension plans and life insurance companies. Sound familiar?

If you thought the FHA was supposed to help young, employed, first time home buyers who have a limited credit history, you would be badly mistaken. There is a reason first time home buyers only make up 29% of all home buyers, near the all-time low. Over history, when the housing market was not being manipulated by warped Federal Reserve monetary policies and government intervention, first time home buyers accounted for 40% to 45% of all home sales. Even with all-time low mortgage rates, courtesy of the Fed’s ZIRP, the lack of jobs, crushing student loan debt, low wages, and over-priced homes has kept traditional young buyers out of the market. But, the FHA’s goal is to convince anyone who can fog a mirror to get into the housing market before it’s too late.

To get some perspective on how the FHA is actively creating the next multi-billion dollar taxpayer bailout, you need to understand FICO credit scoring. Here are the categories:

• Excellent Credit: 781 – 850
• Good Credit: 661-780
• Fair Credit: 601-660
• Poor Credit: 501-600
• Bad Credit: below 500

The average FICO score of all Americans is 687, barely above the Fair Credit level. The average for Americans getting a mortgage is 724, down from 750 in 2012, as the reckless mortgage brokers have taken share from the banks. It is only rational that people with good credit should be the only people borrowing hundreds of thousands of dollars for 30 years. Not in the eyes of the FHA and their politician overseers, who buy votes by doling out free shit to their constituents. Why not houses? You can get an FHA loan with a credit score as low as 500, so long as you have a 10% down payment. And once you hit a 580 credit score, you only need a 3.5% down payment. Credit scores below 600 mean that you have significant derogatory information on your credit report. In other words, you have proven to be a deadbeat. Credit scores below 600 are the result of missing multiple payments on credit cards and auto loans; having multiple collection items or judgments; and potentially having a very recent bankruptcy or foreclosure. Sounds like someone I’d loan money to.

After financial institutions lost hundreds of billions (covered by American taxpayers at the point of a gun through TARP) by peddling low or no down payment mortgages for $500,000 McMansions to deadbeats with no willingness or means of repaying, the percentage of low down payment mortgages rationally plunged from 77% to 60% for first time buyers. Low down payment mortgage loans are a high risk proposition. It wasn’t that long ago when a borrower had to put up 10% to 20%. If you can’t save enough for a 10% down payment then you probably shouldn’t own a house. If your down payment is less than 8%, you are immediately underwater as the costs to sell a home usually total 8% of the selling price. The percentage of first time buyer mortgages with a low down payment mortgage has risen to 66% in the last year and is headed higher, as the FHA is pushing hard on their 3.5% down payment loans.

percent-obtaining

As a general risk guideline, your monthly mortgage payment, including principal, interest, real estate taxes and homeowners insurance, should not exceed 28% of your gross monthly income. Total debt to income generally cannot exceed 43% of your gross monthly income. These guidelines have worked for decades in assessing whether a borrower can afford a mortgage. Why would an arrogant bureaucratic agency, controlled by politicians like Mel Watt and Maxine Waters, follow standard industry risk standards when they are only gambling with taxpayer funds? The FHA is exempt from the qualified mortgage requirement of a 43% debt-to-income ratio. Many loans have a debt-to-income ratio above 55%. Even worse, the FHA only looks at mortgage payments in their calculation. What do you think the odds are of a borrower with a 580 credit score, making $3,000 per month with a $1,500 monthly mortgage payment, of defaulting? They would be high under normal circumstances, and will be off the charts after the next financial bubble bursts and millions are put out of work again.

People who are serial defaulters with 580 credit scores cannot expect to get the lowest rates. They should expect to see interest rates that are at least three percent higher than interest rates awarded to borrowers with good credit. Even the 3.5% down payment requirement is flexible for the FHA. The FHA is perfectly willing to accept a gift or inheritance as a down payment. So, you could have no savings, a 580 FICO, a 50% debt-to-income ratio and a gift from your parents and that would be sufficient to get you a loan. And it gets better. The transaction can be designed with the buyer paying a higher price but getting a credit for closing costs that covers the 3.5% down payment and other fees. Therefore, a serial deadbeat can purchase a house with a government guarantee without putting up one dime of their own cash. Sounds like a great deal for the taxpayer.

I have personal experience with a current FHA mortgage transaction as my 79 year old widowed mother is in the midst of selling the 900 square foot row home that she has lived in for 58 years in the first ring of suburbs outside of Philadelphia. It was once a vibrant middle class neighborhood of working folk, but has been gradually decaying as the old guard dies off and is replaced by lower class Section 8 tenants. She is selling ten years too late as prices have dropped 30% since 2005. She asked $72,900 and received an offer within two weeks of $66,000, with a $4,000 closing credit. My siblings and I didn’t expect her to get an offer in the 60s, as the dump next door was sold for $30,000 and went Section 8 a couple years ago. Anyone buying this house is destined for another 30% loss over the next ten years. So we told her to take the offer before it was too late.

My brother and I met the realtor at her house after work a couple weeks ago. We sat around the dining room table that had seen so many family gatherings over the last half century and discussed the particulars of the deal and the buyer’s background. It was an enlightening glimpse into the Federal government’s futile attempt to engineer a housing recovery on the backs of hard working tax payers with good credit. The buyer is a 20 something guy living with his parents, with a girlfriend and a young kid. He reportedly makes $29,000 per year. His girlfriend was not on the mortgage application. The only logical explanation is she has bad credit. He is putting 3.5% down and getting an FHA guaranteed mortgage. The $4,000 closing credit will cover his 3.5% down payment and closing costs. He evidently has no money to put down when purchasing this home. Sounds promising.

As a high risk borrower he will be lucky to get a 5.5% rate mortgage. In a world where risk mattered, it should be 7.5%. He should thank Ben and Janet for encouraging this type of mal-investment across the country with their 0% interest rate policy. His monthly cost to own this home would be approximately $800, or about 33% of his monthly gross income. Of course, no one brings home their gross income. The $800 would be about 40% of his take home pay after taxes. He did arrive at the house in a nice car, so it is very likely he has at least one auto loan of $20,000 or more. If he doesn’t have a dime to put down on the house, he is likely acting like a true American and rolling a $10,000 credit card balance at 17% interest. His total debt payments assuming a six year auto loan at 3% and making the minimum payments on his credit card would total at least 55% of his monthly gross income. Lucky for him, the FHA doesn’t worry about his non-mortgage debt payments.

So this guy comes home each month with about $2,000 of income and pays out $1,300 in debt payments, leaving him $700 to pay for health insurance, food, utilities, cable, cell phones, entertainment, and any vices he and his baby momma may have. If this isn’t a recipe for default, nothing is. No bank in their right mind would loan this man $66,000 for 30 years at 5.5%. That’s where the crooked nonbank mortgage companies enter the scene, just as they did when their patron saint Angelo “the tan man” Mozilo was roaming the land doling out billions in subprime mortgages while cashing in his stock options in 2005. Remember back in the glory days from 2002 through 2007 when mortgage company fronts, staffed by used car salesmen, pizza delivery guys, and convicted criminals peddled no-doc, negative amortization, liar loan, subprime slime to every Juan, Bubba and Lakeisha, filling the derivative pipeline for Wall Street to destroy the financial system? They’re back.

These parasites don’t worry about individual risk, financial risk, or systematic risk. They care about upfront fees and their ability to package their toxic subprime mortgages and dump the risk on someone else before it all blows up again. They are willing to issue mortgages to people unlikely to repay because there is a big difference between the risk that faces the company, and the risk that faces the blood sucking founder of the mortgage front. It’s a perfect opportunity for shysters and scumbags. You set up a mortgage company, and take extraordinarily opulent commissions on all loans you book. In this Fed created paradise of low interest rates, investors are desperate for yield. An FHA loan provides the opportunity for an investor to receive a good yield and a guarantee from the Federal government – aka YOU THE TAXPAYER.

The conscienceless CEO and executives of these MBS machines revel in the vast commission revenue as the loans are booked. These companies retain little or no capital on their balance sheets. Instead, they pay dividends to the owners as quickly as possible, before the bottom drops out. When the next Fed induced financial crisis happens the mortgage company will go bankrupt, but the slimy owners will walk away unscathed. These fly by night operations are booking as much business as possible before the music stops playing. When the music stops, the taxpayer will be on the hook again, as the FHA will need a $25 billion to $50 billion bailout. The FHA is flying under the radar, still in the shadow of equally insolvent Fannie and Freddie. Their mission is supposedly to help lower income people achieve the American Dream, but their politically motivated actions today will lead to millions of borrowers experiencing an American Nightmare and taxpayers footing the bill for their crackpot Keynesian scheme, aided and abetted by the Janet Yellen and her Fed cronies.

B2WejtPCMAAG0ip

The FHA has $64 billion of liabilities on their balance sheet supported by $3 billion of capital. They are currently accelerating their guarantees to subprime borrowers with 3.5% down mortgages. Fannie and Freddie will purchase mortgages with only 3% down payments. Wall Street issued $1 trillion of mortgage backed securities last year, with the Fed buying 20% of the issuance as part of QE3. If this sounds like a replay of the waning days of the last Fed induced housing bubble, it’s because it is. Both debacles have been fueled by the mal-investment created by an easy money, excessively low interest rate environment, designed to benefit bankers, billionaires, politicians and mega-corporations. The Fed already has $1.7 trillion of Wall Street generated toxic mortgage debt on its bloated balance sheet. By the time this imminent catastrophe runs its course, there will be another trillion of toxic mortgages polluting their insolvent balance sheet.

To paraphrase H.L. Mencken, anyone who wants the government and Federal Reserve to create a housing recovery, deserves to get it good and hard, like a four by four to the side of their head. Subprime mortgages, subprime auto loans, and subprime student loans driven by preposterously low interest rates are the liquefying foundation of this fake economic recovery. Most rational people would agree that loaning money to people who will eventually default is not a good idea. But it is the underpining of everything the Fed and government apparatchiks have done to keep this farce going a little while longer. It will not end well – Again.

The Possible Underground Tunnel Connection To Walmart (VIDEO)

underground tunnel

Is Walmart connecting to the US underground tunnel network? Speculation is mounting after Walmart’s shocking and abrupt decision to shut down 5 of its stores, each for 6 months, in 4 different states (Pico Rivera, CA; Midland, TX; Livingston, TX; Tulsa, OK; Brandon, FL). Apparently, employees were given only 5 hours notice. They were also given 60 days severance pay. The official excuse given by Walmart is plumbing problems, which is sheer nonsense. It does not take 6 months to repair a few toilets, or even to replace a sewer line. In fact, Walmart could erect an entire new store within that time frame! Giant corporations run on greed and profits; it is unthinkable that they would willingly forgo 6 months of revenue for such a small problem. So what’s really going on? Is Walmart perhaps preparing for some massive event due to come? Are they connecting to the US underground tunnel system?

We know there’s an extensive network of underground tunnels and bases (DUMBs) under US soil. Is Walmart shutting down stores for 6 months to connect to it?

The Enmeshment of Walmart and the Corporate US Government

Before answering that, it’s worthwhile taking a closer look at Walmart’s massive place in today’s American society. Fascism as defined by former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, was the merging of corporate and governmental power, and was more aptly called corporatism. That’s what the US (and other Western powers) are today: corporate fascist empires. The US is literally a corporation; the “United States”, the “United States of America” and all other synonyms have all been trademarked, incorporated terms since 1871. Additionally, we know that the elite controllers at the top of the pyramid use the revolving door to switch between the private and public arenas as it suits them. Many top executives working at big firms go into government to regulate the very industry and companies they were just involved with! Examples of this are copious. Remember too that many top firms actually drive US policy, such as Monsanto driving US foreign policy regarding France and its anti-GMO position!

From that perspective, then, it comes as no surprise to discover that Walmart and the US Government are already enmeshed. This video of former DHS head Janet Napolitano shows how Walmart already had a deal with the DHS, and helped it spread its fear propaganda message to the public to be suspicious of each other – and of course to report anything suspicious to your local, friendly Walmart manager. US troops overseas in Yemen may have taken control of a Walmart store there by force (as reported by Sorcha Faal).

Walmart could well be gearing up to become a governmental Distribution Center in an emergency (created or otherwise) or in a martial law scenario. In that kind of situation, Walmart could be the hub (like Camp FEMA) where people are being sent to be forced vaccinated, where dissidents and activists are being sent to be forcibly detained, or (I hope it would never come to this) where the public is being sent to be forced microchipped. It also unsurprising to those who are paying attention that Walmart (in this video) is using local police to guard its perimeter – further proof that Walmart is joined at the hip with the Federal Government, and also evidence that Walmart is hiding something pretty big.

Could Walmart Be Connecting Itself to the Underground Tunnel Network?

Phil Schneider was a brave whistleblower who had firsthand knowledge of America’s vast underground tunnel network. He personally worked in the DUMBs (Deep Underground Military Bases). Due to his courage in speaking out, he was “suicided”. However, thanks to him and others, we know the underground tunnel network is extensive; we know it connects to the New World Order airport of Denver, Colorado; and we know thanks to other truthtellers like Steven Kelley that these underground tunnels don’t just connect to military bases and installations; they also connect to the rich houses of the elite (Kelley talks about the underground tunnels connecting to houses and the Getty Museum surrounding Los Angeles in this video). Other people have captured great videos of truck drivers entering the underground tunnel network with supplies.

Given that, there is ample reason to believe that Walmart could be connecting its stores to the underground tunnel network. Take a look at this map, which overlays the 5 closed Walmart stores, and a rough map of what we believe is the existing underground tunnel system underneath American soil:

Overlay of 5 closed Walmart stores (upside down teardrops) and a rough map of existing underground tunnel system under US soil.

Overlay of 5 closed Walmart stores (upside down teardrops) and a rough map of existing underground tunnel system under US soil.

Why Now? Why So Abruptly?

Although it’s feasible to believe that Walmart is connecting to the underground tunnel network, as other military installations, military bases, airports and private elite houses have done, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding the event. Why now? Why so abruptly? Why couldn’t they have planned this out so as not to draw so much attention?

At this stage we can only speculate. Hopefully some activists can pierce the police guard and capture more photos. However, it could well indicate that a large event is coming down the pipeline.

Feds Panic On Mass Common Core Test Refusals, Threaten Reprisals

common core
By: Alex Newman | The New American

Public resistance to Common Core is exploding across America, and officials are not happy about it. The Obama administration’s Department of Education, along with pro-Common Core government officials across the country under pressure from the feds, appear to be in panic mode. Facing a growing nationwide “opt out” movement to refuse participation in the unconstitutional federally funded testing regime aligned with the Obama-backed national school standards, senior bureaucrats, including Education Secretary Arne Duncan, have actually started resorting to lawless threats against parents, teachers, students, and entire state governments. Some parents were threatened by officials with jail time. Even small children are being punished by the state for “opting out” of the deeply controversial tests, with one California mother telling The New American that her daughter was publicly denied ice cream in retaliation.

But so far, the threats are only emboldening the opposition.

Perhaps the most outrageous threat so far came from Obama’s education chief, Duncan, who boasted in recent years of using government schools to create “green citizens” with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) as a “global partner.” Late last month, Duncan, who was greeted by protesters urging him to “stop test bullying,” threatened federal intervention to force Americans to take the Common Core tests if states would not do the job. “We think most states will do that,” Duncan proclaimed at an Education Writers Association conference in Chicago. “If states don’t do that, then we [the federal government] have an obligation to step in.” In reality, of course, the federal government has an obligation under the U.S. Constitution to butt out. But despite swearing an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, including the 10th Amendment, Duncan has led the charge in recent years to finish federalizing the government school system — and to use it as what he called a “weapon” to “change to world.”

Sounding oblivious to America’s federalist system of constitutional government, Duncan proclaimed that he expected state governments to hold “districts’ and schools’ feet to the fire on this,” as if state governments were mere administrative units to enforce decrees from the all-powerful federal executive branch. Hundreds of thousands of students in New York recently opted out. Almost nobody took the tests in some districts amid a full-scale uprising by teachers, students, and parents. In Chicago, where even the teachers’ union has blasted the federal takeover, school officials were threatened with the loss of more than $1 billion in state and federal “education aid” if not enough students were successfully coerced into taking the Common Core-aligned tests. Still, few details were provided on what it might look like to have the Obama administration “step in” and force students to take the controversial tests — an outrageous threat he also made in a discussion with Motoko Rich of the New York Times.

Critics, however, ridiculed the threat, daring the administration to try it. “Assuming that Duncan is not planning to call in the National Guard to haul off opt-outing 8 year olds, the only possible ‘sanction’ would be withholding funds,” observed Carol Burris, an award-winning New York principal who recently stepped down to fight back against what she sees as problems with the public education system. “That would surely lead to court challenges forcing the Education Department to justify penalizing schools when parents exercise their legitimate right to refuse the test — an impossible position to defend.” Noting that students of all races and backgrounds were opting out of the testing scheme, Burris pointed out that the rates “defy the stereotype that the movement is a rebellion of petulant ‘white suburban moms.’”

In a recent statement published by the Washington Post, the New York “2013 High School Principal of the Year” also highlighted a number of troubling government abuses targeting parents. Among other concerns, she said, citing activists and teachers, that administrators in some districts took advantage of non-English speaking parents by lying to them about the tests, saying they were mandatory or that children would be held back for refusal to take them. One critic called it “blatant discrimination at best.” Burris also lambasted the Common Core tests and noted that Duncan’s own children go to a non-Common Core school — as do the children of Common Core financier Bill Gates, and Common Core strongman Obama. She concluded the scathing commentary by noting that the movement to refuse the tests puts the entire “education reform” agenda in serious trouble.

Beyond targeting states and schools, education officials in some areas, responding to federal pressure, have strayed into the realm of potential criminal activity in seeking to boost participation in the tests. In one especially extreme case from Georgia, school officials, citing supposed “federal and state mandates” on the tests, said parents could not refuse to allow their children to take the tests. A meeting was scheduled for the parents to meet with the principal. However, when they arrived, they were met by a police officer, who reportedly warned them that they may be “trespassing” on school property due to their opposition to the testing regime. In the end, it was apparently sorted out without arrest, but the incident was deeply troubling to parents.

In South Carolina, education bureaucrats went even further. The officials reportedly warned parents that they could be imprisoned for 30 days for refusing to allow their children to participate in the national testing regime, which was mandated under the unconstitutional Bush-era No Child Left Behind scheme. According to news reports citing the group South Carolina Parents Involved in Education, South Carolina Education Department Chief Operating Officer Elizabeth Carpentier also threatened groups or organizations that encourage testing refusals with potential criminal charges of “aiding and abetting a crime.” School officials cited in media reports downplayed the threats, saying that parents and groups were merely threatened with existing statutes on “truancy” for not sending children to school for the testing.

In California, mother Amy Watson and her husband decided that their 10-year-old daughter would not be taking the unconstitutional federally funded Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) test. She was placed in an alternate classroom each testing day with other “opt out” students. In response to the refusal, though, on the day after testing was finished, “the three girls who opted out again were identified, ‘called out,’ and given instructions to go to the same classrooms as during SBAC testing,” Watson told The New American. “The girls were sent out so the ‘test takers’ could have an ice cream party. My daughter returned to her classroom with the trashcan full of empty ice cream containers. There were three ‘left over’ containers. The three opt-out students were not permitted to have them. These three containers were given to teachers instead.” The same thing happened to opt-out students in other grades, she added, calling it an “egregious act.”

Now, Watson has filed a privacy law-violation complaint with the U.S. Department of Education after her daughter and other opt-out students were “intentionally targeted.” The 10-year old is now fearful of additional retaliation from school officials, and Watson is seeking counseling for her daughter due to the emotional and psychological impact the targeting had on her. “I described the situation to the representative at the federal Department of Education,” Watson said. “He verified that ‘yes, this is a violation of FERPA [federal privacy law to protect students].’” The outraged mother is also in contact with attorneys and vowed to continue pursuing the case. Since the scandal, school officials have tried to downplay the incident as a “misunderstanding,” Watson said. But she is not buying it.

As the rebellion against the unconstitutional Common Core testing regime continues to sweep across America like wildfire, the Obama administration is certain to continue doing everything possible to stop it — including lawlessly threatening the American people. But despite those threats, as awareness of Common Core spreads, opposition will keep spreading as well. The testing regime is crucial for enforcing Common Core, and for gathering vast amounts of private data on students for the federal government. Without it, the widely criticized standards regime foisted on America by taxpayer-funded bribes from the Obama administration may well crumble.

The education establishment is now in a serious bind. On one hand, it can rip off the mask and resort to more outright lawlessness and tyranny in an effort to enforce compliance with its deeply unpopular machinations. Such a reaction would almost certainly backfire and produce even more public outrage and resistance. Alternatively, the Obama administration and its backers can risk having the entire Common Core scheme come crashing down around them by ignoring the mushrooming national movement to refuse the tests. Either way, the American people can still win the battle for education in the long run, if the pressure stays on.

Prefab State Terror For Human Bondage

CIA-atrocities

The shadow cabal that exerts raw power over the public controls and dictates the mindset that passes as the popular culture. Keeping people in fear, real or manufactured is essential to keep the police state omnipresent. Both foreign and domestic operations are conducted to divide and rule, not only other nations, but the indigenous populations that are targets of the next clandestine mission. Since the end of WWII, the intelligence community has lead the way to overturn our constitutional republic and put into place a controlled social environment that is docile and obedient to the masters of the Amerika Empire.

In order to accomplish this fundamental transition from a free society into a despotic police state, threats must be fashioned, real or imaginary. Bona fide menaces that imperil our legitimate national security require intelligent and defensive action. However, such situations are rare, when compared to the entire mix of manufactured crisis that are designed to increase the range and scope of the power establishment.

The sordid and soiled history of the Central Intelligence Agency is a prime example of furthering international conflict and tension so that the national subjects will accept a trepidation culture. But the CIA is not alone in this coordinated effort to create undeviating terror. In the 50’s the FBI looked for a commie under any bed. Just consider how far we have sunk since Hoover did his illegal wire taps to a society that routinely accepted the NSA collection of all electronic communications.

With the collapse of the Soviet International and the intellectual disrepute of Marxist ideology, one might think that the efforts of the intelligence communities might have earned their keep. With the recent disclosure of the CIA cooperated with Chinese intelligence to target Russia, the book “The Hundred Year Marathon” by former Pentagon official Michael Pillsbury reveals the following:

“Covert CIA-China cooperation was part of successive administrations’ programs to undermine the Soviet Union, which China turned on after realizing Moscow’s Marxist-Leninist economic model was doomed. China instead began courting the United States for economic benefit while creating a revised communist economic system.

The disclosures of clandestine U.S.-China intelligence cooperation dating to the 1970s are likely to embarrass Beijing. China frequently attacks the CIA for allegedly fomenting democratic revolution in China and for supporting the exiled Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama, whom China designated as a major enemy. Beijing also accused the CIA of organizing the recent large-scale pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong. The U.S. government has denied any role in the public outcry over creeping Chinese control over the former British colony.”

The significance of the “Agency” working with an advocacy to destabilize a different foe should not shock seasoned observers of international intrigue. What is even less surprising is that the defeat of the Soviet Communist regime brought a new era of openness to Russia, while the neo-commies in Beijing China perfected their totalitarian model for the NWO globalism elites.

Now that the Putin administration is exerting its own national interest and pushes back against the American expansion to surround the “Motherland”, the pro Zionists over at the State Department ratchet up pressure on the new Russia. The U.S. inspired coup in Ukraine has always been about neutering the Christian revival in Russia.

As currency wars develop and the Russia Rubble was recently undermined, the attack on any intended opposition to the “world community” is set to expand. Conversely, speculation that the IMF will soon add the Chinese Yuan as a reserve currency indicates that it is vital to craft essential enemies when needed and elevate opportunist when useful.

The common theme throughout the last century has been the planned technocratic human bondage of the world population. The calls for democratic self determination and economic uplifting for subsistent level peasants may seem to have improved the human condition. Even so, the upgrading in material minimalism has not been accompanied with respect for individual human rights.

The State, no matter what nationality or ideological orientation all share a consistent flaw; namely, a false authority of supremacy that imposes the dictates of committed globalists.

Failure to recognize that intelligence and security agencies are nothing more than police state enforcers is a prime reason why a universal populist movement does not gain traction.

Different cultures perceive the world within their own ethnic eyes. Expecting varied outlooks should be accepted as normal. However, the overriding message that comes out of the mass media, both foreign and domestic, share a common commercial content. The powers that be must be obeyed. This social indoctrination is intended to protect the interdependency of a unified global matrix.

In order to achieve this objective, perceived threats are useful. Distinguishing between tangible and phony dangers, contrary to popular wisdom, is not a function, preformed by the security apparatus, one can have confidence in. Their literal agenda is to serve the shifting global instability template, so that the elite can continue to have free reign on adding more layers of servitude.

Today’s serfs often wear designer duds. But more important, perception is altered when history is perverted. How the CIA Turned Doctor Zhivago into a Propaganda Weapon Against the Soviet Union provided a valuable lesson.

“The CIA’s recently revealed use of Boris Pasternak’s novel Doctor Zhivago as a propaganda weapon. Repressed in Pasternak’s native Russia, the book first appeared in Italy in 1957. The following year, the British suggested to America’s Central Intelligence Agency that the book stood a decent chance of winning hearts and minds behind the Iron Curtain — if, of course, they could get a few copies in there. A CIA memo sent across its own Soviet Russia Division subsequently pronounced Doctor Zhivago as possessed of “great propaganda value, not only for its intrinsic message and thought-provoking nature, but also for the circumstances of its publication. We have the opportunity to make Soviet citizens wonder what is wrong with their government, when a fine literary work by the man acknowledged to be the greatest living Russian writer is not even available in his own country in his own language for his own people to read.”

That evaluation comes from one of the over 130 declassified documents used by Peter Finn and Petra Couvée in their brand new history of this act of real-life literary espionage, The Zhivago Affair: The Kremlin, the CIA and the Battle Over a Forbidden Book.”

The message behind this outstanding treasure of literature is undeniable. Hopeful, uplifting of the human spirit, while describing the grim circumstances of the commissar system, is memorable. Comrades beware; bringing down an evil empire to have it replaced with a kinder and gentler Western version of globalization is not exactly the definition of success.

Who among the defenders of Western Civilization will write the next masterpiece about the sinister motives and dire effects of the true global hegemony that seeks to subjugate all of humanity under the banner of world unity?

The imposition of State terror initiates its next operation with the full blessing of the financial controllers. Keeping and expanding the danger level of false flag terrorism, provides the excuse to impose the Jade Helm gulag.

“JADE-HELM – stands for: “Joint Assistance For Deployment and Execution – Homeland Eradication of Local Militants.” In other words, the Government is getting nervous about the fact that more Americans are now aware of the corruption, criminality and destruction of civil rights. Jade Helm is specifically intended for the purpose of eliminating fomenting Government insurrection groups. The States in which Jade Helm exercises are being conducted are “hot beds” for anti-Government militia groups (the latter are your allies).”

The faint-hearted vassals, who would never dare to jeopardize their own tranquility, if not meaningless subsistence, or oppose their countries deep sleep into oblivion, are real bondage serfs.

Keeping or amplifying the CIA sub-rosa agenda of warfare missions to include domestic operations should be opposed by any loyal citizen. Since apathy, confusion and denial of what actually constitutes a “Good and Open Society” is in such short supply, few will act upon resisting the forces of global tyranny.

When genuine national security is sacrificed to further a climate of prefab fear, we lose the battle for true safety. If enduring under a Reign of Terror is the price we all must pay to complete the global New World Order, we must be collectively insane to allow this transition to be accepted without a fight to the death.

Many will conclude that this conversion is inevitable. Doctor Zhivago was a heroic figure and fought the autocrats. His example provides motivation to apply the same principles of opposition to the established order of a demonic organized criminal syndicate.

Having the courage to combat despotism in favor of individual liberation, is fundamentally our duty and purpose as true Americans. Reject phony intelligence community terrorist threats. In order to restore the essence of our nation, every citizen needs to oppose any and all   components of the New World Order. Reform will not work. Only total rebellion is left.

Case Study In Collapse Propaganda: Venezuela Is Now Rationing Electricity

Venezuela Is Now Rationing Electricity

Denial might be a river in Venezuela.

For the past year, the government has been trying to sugar coat the economic demise of the country, and they’re continuing the propaganda with the new electricity rationing program that they’ve instituted. If you think it’s because of the socialist government’s financial collapse, you’re being ridiculous. It’s because they care about climate change. Vice President Jorge Arreaza said so.

 “This is, of course, linked to global warming and the excessive industrialization of capitalism, which never stops, nor has ever stopped, for the effects that it can have on the climate, on society and on Mother Earth.”

Of course it is. Only silly paranoid conspiracy theorists would say otherwise.

In case you’ve forgotten, there’s also no food shortage and there’s plenty of freedom, too.

The government of Venezuela passed laws disallowing the storage of food because it’s just silly to do that. The rationing of the food available in the country, using a fingerprint registry is just there to keep people in line with the law. And even though store shelves were virtually bare of basic necessities like toilet paper, laundry soap, and food in January, with long lines of people waiting for the few  items available, it must just be where those folks were shopping.

Repeat after me: THERE ARE NO SHORTAGES.

Now, back to electricity. A report on Breitbart.com said:

The Venezuelan government will begin rationing electrical supplies this week in response to high demand triggered by heat. Public employees will only have to work six hours a day until further notice, and police units will be sent to inspect private businesses to ensure they only use their allotted amounts. Venezuelan Vice President Jorge Arreaza blamed the measures on climate change.

Minister of Energy Jesse Chacón added that the limited hours on public sector jobs would not apply to necessary arms of the government, such as education, health, security, and garbage collection. Private industries are obligated to use 10% less energy across the board until further notice, without any exceptions mentioned in the original announcement. The new regulation permits government inspection of businesses specifically to monitor energy use, though the government has not specified what punishments await a business that defies the call.

See? I told you. They just love the planet. That’s all.

Here’s why we need to pay attention to the rationing in Venezuela.

Now, if you’re reading this and thinking that what happens in Venezuela is of no concern to you, I beg you to reconsider. No, the economic situation in a South American socialist country won’t directly cause the US economy to collapse. What it does is provide a modern day glimpse into what an economic collapse really looks like, much like the collapse of Greece was a cautionary tale. These are both direct case studies of what happens to the middle class during an economic collapse.

These mandated power rations, the limited amounts of food, the government-funded snitches, the tracking, and most of all, the propaganda, are all what await us in an economic collapse situation. While the Venezuelan government will be facing no limits on their use of electrical power, the people will only be allowed allotted amounts.

Do you think it can’t happen here?  Consider the forced rationing of water amidst the drought in California. Rationing that only applies to regular folks, not wealthy people or massive corporations.

It’s obvious that the state really is in the midst of an epic drought. But conservation mandates are not applied equally, much like the electricity rationing in Venezuela.

Golf courses for the rich and famous remain lush and green, while wells across the state run dry. Ordinary people aren’t allowed to have lawns or to even have vegetable gardens, and newspapers are calling upon “good Samaritans” to snitch if they feel someone is wasting water. There’s even an app for that, and Smart Meters are in place to target wasters (Unless they happen to be wealthy corporations, of course. They have different rules and snitching on them will do no good.)

One small community, Outingdale, just received word that strict rationing is now in effect. Residents will be allowed only 50 gallons per day, per person, and no outside watering of any kind will be permitted. This is not good news for folks who rely on their vegetable gardens for food. Meanwhile, the Nestle corporation is busy pumping out the state’s remaining water, bottling it, and selling it back to people for an enormous profit.

Anyway, back to electricity.

I’m reminded of the series, The Hunger Games, in which residents of the outlying districts are only allowed power when the Capitol deems they should have it, such as when they want to air propaganda “entertainment” to keep people in line.  In the movie, citizens of the Districts were relegated to cooking over open fires and lighting their rooms with candles.  No one had transportation or power.  They were not allowed to hunt to supplement their meager food allotments and in the heroine’s District, they were not allowed to use the coal the area was rich with.  Uniformed “peacekeepers” patrolled the districts to ensure that the rules were strictly adhered to and that the excruciating poverty was the standard for all residents.

With the widespread installation of mandatory Smart Meters, how difficult would it be to forcibly ration our electricity here?

They can already remotely turn off appliances they deem are using too much energy. At the press of a few keys on a central computer, our electricity usage could be  monitored to make sure we stay within the designated limits, strictly slotted to only certain hours of the day, or even cut off entirely if we exceed our rations. It may not even be direct rationing that cuts us off, as it is in Venezuela. As prices of electricity keep climbing, how extreme is it to think that one of these days, electricity might only be for rich people?

However it goes down you can be sure that no one in the government will admit to mismanagement or a desire to enhance control and dependency. It will be couched in warm, fuzzy terms of saving the planet from carbon emissions, much like the propaganda coming out of Venezuela.  It’s easy for us to see it when it happens to them, but many people here are so deeply entrenched in cognitive dissonance that they’ll swallow the green pill with a smile, moving into their Agenda 21 microhomes and martyring themselves for the good of Team Green.

Self-reliance means survival.

So, what can we do to maintain our independence should our access to affordable necessities be rationed out like they are in Venezuela? Here are 15 ways to increase your self-reliance so that you are less affected if rationing comes to America.

  1. Reduce your dependence on the power grid with rain barrels, gray water systems, line drying, and solar lighting.
  2. Eat simple food you prepare from scratch.
  3. Produce as much of your own food as possible.
  4. Learn to make pantry basics like vinegar, sourdough, and cultured dairy products.
  5. Learn to preserve your harvests to see you through the lean days of winter.
  6. Find other ways to stay warm.  This can be difficult if you rent but it can still be done.  Consider making modifications to allow for the use of portable wood heaters, look into different types of camping heate.  Make your plans and purchase your supplies well before you need them.  Learn how to safely store fuel for these secondary devices. Invest in battery operated C02 monitors (and extra batteries). Get sleeping bags with a warmth rating for low temperatures, consider a small tent where you and family members can sleep in your living room to pool body heat, and stock up on cold weather clothing like hats, fingerless gloves, long underwear and heavy sweaters. Find ways to insulate and separate one main living area off from the rest of the house by closing doors, hanging curtains in doorways, etc. Obviously this isn’t the lifestyle we hope for, but it pays to be ready.
  7. Learn to forage.
  8. Use “old-fashioned” alternatives for disposable things like diapers, wipes, feminine hygiene supplies, paper towels, and the like.
  9. Learn to make cleaning supplies and soaps, especially from accessible supplies (like vinegar, ash, and foraged natural ingredients).
  10. Look for the thrifty answer using things you have on hand, instead of purchasing a solution to every problem.
  11. Fix things that are broken instead of replacing them.
  12. Watch the prices of your utilities.  As the prices begin to rise, more and more people will be unable to pay their bills and eventually their power will be shut off. (Much like the running water in Detroit.) Check your bill each month and as prices increase, use less power.
  13. Learn about natural remedies from accessible sources.
  14. Learn to protect your family and property.
  15. Prep, prep and then prep some more.  The end of the American way of life is upon us.  Stock up on beans, bullets, and band-aids. If you’re new to the idea of prepping, check out some sites like Ready Nutrition, Backdoor SurvivalThe Survival MomSHTFplan, Underground Medic, and Graywolf Survival. The clock is ticking.

It’s only by reducing your need for the things sold in stores and your reliance on services provided by corporations that you can exempt yourself from the chaos, dependency, and desperation that will erupt when an economic collapse situation occurs here.
