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.
[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.

QUOTE: “As a student of monetary, financial and economic history for the past five years it has taught me to watch the markets with an open mind and a hand on my wallet.”
A group of foreign militants infiltrates the U.S. using student visas, weak borders, bribery and cooperation with drug cartels. Secret cells integrate within metropolitan areas and blend with the populace. At the precise moment, they activate, unleashing small attacks across the country in coordinated blitzkrieg-style terror campaigns against everything from suburban neighborhoods to public schools to shopping malls, striking fear into the citizenry, which now believes no one is safe, even in the heartland. With normal law enforcement overwhelmed, the economy on the brink and the populace ready to riot, the military is deployed domestically; curfews, price controls and rationing are initiated; and special operations agents act as infiltrators in order to subdue the terrorist factions. The loss of common liberties is welcomed by most as safety and security become the paramount motivator.
A glimpse into the future? Well, perhaps. Actually, it’s the plot narrative to a Chuck Norris movie called “Invasion U.S.A.” The terrorists in that movie were communists from places like Cuba and Venezuela (hey, it was the 80s, and we had no idea that the communists were elitists that had already taken over from within), but the premise is strangely not far from what the government is trying to sell to us as a potential real-life scenario today.
As Americans, we have been bombarded with propaganda for decades, which conjures rationalizations for domestic military operations. This propaganda always presents us with an all-or-nothing option: relinquish liberty and beat the enemy, or “cling” to the “outdated” Constitution and fall as a society. There never seems to be a third option, an option that does not require the loss of freedoms and allows for security. In the film “Invasion U.S.A.,” I suppose we had Chuck Norris as a third option, which is not a bad third option in the world of cinema; but I’m sorry to say that Chuck alone cannot save us from what is coming in the real America.
I am highly suspicious of the rhetoric coming out of Washington lately in terms of the ISIS situation. ISIS has apparently secured the Iraqi city of Ramadi and put the government there on the defensive, meaning that despite the recent claims that ISIS leadership has been hit in Syria, the group continues to advance.
“Former” CIA officials (is there such a thing?) are also getting in on the action, warning in mainstream media outlets that ISIS has the ability to direct at least small-scale attacks on the U.S. today.
However, the threat of ISIS does not frighten me. It concerns me, but what truly disturbs me is the likely government response if such predictions by alphabet agencies come to pass.
In my recent article “When The Elites Wage War On America, This Is How They Will Do It,” I examined the tactics behind not only globalization, but also the most probable methods that will be used to secure globalization through the oppression of dissenting voices and groups. Part of that examination included my take on the Jade Helm 15 exercises running from summer into autumn and how they fit directly into the strategies for disrupting insurgencies (revolutions) discussed openly by internationalists in their own symposiums.
My conclusion given the clear evidence at hand? Jade Helm is definitely NOT meant to prepare troops for foreign operations. The program is admitted to be a primer for military response to “crisis scenarios,” denoting domestic operation. Special forces groups are training with domestic agencies like the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration. And they are training and infiltrating completely American environments, which they would not be doing unless they planned to operate in very similar environments. Special forces always train like they fight. Period.
With at least 45% of Americans concerned that open domestic military exercises are a precursor to greater federal control over states and more than 62% convinced that government power is suffocating individual liberty, it is only a matter of time before the government spin doctors create a semi-believable rationale for such endeavors as Jade Helm. I believe that ISIS could be their perfect rationale.
As public concern is amplified and evidence indicating that the Department of Defense is lying about the purpose of JH15 is more widely recognized, the DOD may very well admit that the operation is not for training in foreign theaters. Rather, they may argue that JH15 is in fact training designed to protect Americans on American soil from widespread terrorist threats. That is to say, the new spin will be that Jade Helm is meant to save us all from the psychopathic child killing cannibal monstrosity known as ISIS.
Look at it this way, what better excuse for covert military actions in domestic environments? What better way to justify lying to the American people about Jade Helm goals and directives? What better way to silence the critics and so-called “conspiracy theorists” than for the government to say: “Yes, we lied, but it was to keep the real and honorable purpose of JH15 secret, and to save the public from terrorism, now shut up naysayers and liberty activists, you are putting the whole nation at risk…!”
Maybe I am connecting dots that are not dots, but it seems to me that the timing of ISIS warnings, the re-ignition of economic downturn in 2014/2015, the global shift away from the dollar, and Jade Helm are not entirely coincidental. Martial Law is not a scenario that can be generated in a vacuum; it needs a primer, a trigger event, if not multiple trigger events.
If the final trigger event is indeed intended to be a terror campaign on U.S. soil, then questions of the true purpose of Jade Helm will undoubtedly take a back seat to immediate solutions to what amounts to a foreign invasion (at least, that is how it will be painted), and none other than Jade Helm will be presented as that solution.
The debate over JH15 and programs like it will change. It will become a matter of the “greater good” against a foreign enemy, rather than a government overstep against the rights of the people. How can we possibly question the defense of American soil against terrorists? Isn’t that an undeniable directive of the military? And if we do question such a directive and its value to the American people, are we not “weakening” the resolve and effectiveness of the defense apparatus through negative public opinion? And by extension, would that not make us “domestic enemies” as well?
In fact, I can easily argue that there is absolutely NO rationale for domestic military operations against ISIS or anyone else, and here’s why.
ISIS Is A Fabrication
As I outlined in detail in my article “The Time Is Ripe For A False Flag Attack On American Soil,” the organization known as ISIS has long been a collaborative creation of the U.S. government and its allies. From funding and training in Libya and Jordan, to arming in Syria and Iraq, ISIS is nothing without the Western intelligence apparatus, just as al-Qaida was nothing more than a CIA Frankenstein monster.
So should Americans be forced to relinquish their freedoms in order to combat an enemy that our own government engineered out of thin air? And beyond that, who represents the greater enemy: ISIS or the lunatic elitists who gave ISIS the tools to commit atrocities?
Government Is Incapable Of Providing Security
Some people may argue that the true origins of ISIS are a matter of historical debate that will not solve our immediate problem of rampant terror threats. How can we nitpick where ISIS came from while ISIS is trying to massacre us? Fair enough.
My rebuttal would be that regardless of where ISIS found its organizational support, the U.S. government and the military apparatus under the direction of a corrupt DOD are incapable of protecting the American people anyway. If ISIS is able to unleash a campaign of attacks that give license to the idea of martial law, then the government has only proven one of two things:
1) It is too inept to prevent such events from occurring due to its refusal to secure our borders and despite full-spectrum surveillance of the American people by the NSA.
2) It is so evil in its machinations that it has allowed terrorist infiltration in order to further an agenda of greater control.
Either the government is a bungling bureaucratic mess not capable of keeping anyone safe, or it is a cesspool of tyranny that has no intention of keeping anyone safe. In either case, why should the American people give such an entity even MORE power, when it can’t responsibly handle the considerable power it already has?
American Civilians Can Provide Their Own Security And Do It Better
Official martial law may never be declared, but it could nevertheless become a reality. I would present the response to the Boston bombing event as a direct example of militarization of a domestic region without it being called “martial law.” This was, of course, a “federalized” response, rather than a military one. But it was militarization in its nature all the same. The establishment will use all kinds of mislabeling and spin in order to entice the populace to submit to further encroachment of liberties in the name of security.
The fact is the best defense for the civilian population of America has always been the individual population itself. Terrorists are far more likely to be thwarted tactically and psychologically by a trained, armed, aware and free citizenry than any oppressive federal or military dragnet. Why? Because the citizenry is the target, and thus, always first on the scene to respond. Citizens become victims when they wait around passively for government “authorized” responders to save them, instead of adopting the attitude that THEY are responsible for their own defense. Legally, it is a constitutional mandate that American militias retain authority over domestic defense. And to be clear, the militia is every able-bodied American, not only a certain percentage of Americans the government deems acceptable (which means the National Guard does not qualify as the militia).
This is the answer to the propaganda of militarization. We do not have to choose between liberty and security. We can have both, and we can provide it for ourselves as our own protectors. Sheepdogs be damned. Each citizen is his first and best line of defense.
Only when the American people take on the philosophy of self-defense rather than government reliance will we be free of fear from terrorism and free of fear from tyrannical government. It starts with each of you, in your homes, neighborhoods, towns and counties. Citizen organizations for mutual aid and security to counter any threat, regardless of the mask it wears, will be the catalyst for a legitimately free society. In the face of such organization, martial law is not only illegitimate, but entirely unnecessary. ISIS does not matter. It is what we ultimately do about ISIS or similar threats that matters, and martial law is not the answer.

The cashless society is nothing new, but its rapid recent progress threatens us all. It’s another major attack on privacy.
The UN plans to launch a brand new plan for managing the entire globe at the Sustainable Development Summit that it will be hosting from September 25th to September 27th. Some of the biggest names on the planet, including Pope Francis, will be speaking at this summit. This new sustainable agenda focuses on climate change of course, but it also specifically addresses topics such as economics, agriculture, education and gender equality. For those wishing to expand the scope of “global governance”, sustainable development is the perfect umbrella because just about all human activity affects the environment in some way. The phrase “for the good of the planet” can be used as an excuse to micromanage virtually every aspect of our lives. So for those who are concerned about the growing power of the United Nations, this summit in September is something to keep an eye on. Never before have I seen such an effort to promote a UN summit on the environment, and this new sustainable development agenda is literally a framework for managing the entire globe.
If you are not familiar with this new sustainable development agenda, the following is what the official United Nations website says about it…
The United Nations is now in the process of defining Sustainable Development Goals as part a new sustainable development agenda that must finish the job and leave no one behind. This agenda, to be launched at the Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015, is currently being discussed at the UN General Assembly, where Member States and civil society are making contributions to the agenda.
The process of arriving at the post 2015 development agenda is Member State-led with broad participation from Major Groups and other civil society stakeholders. There have been numerous inputs to the agenda, notably a set of Sustainable Development Goals proposed by an open working group of the General Assembly, the report of an intergovernmental committee of experts on sustainable development financing, General Assembly dialogues on technology facilitation and many others.
Posted below are the 17 sustainable development goals that are being proposed so far. Some of them seem quite reasonable. After all, who wouldn’t want to “end poverty”. But as you go down this list, you soon come to realize that just about everything is involved in some way. In other words, this truly is a template for radically expanded “global governance”. Once again, this was taken directly from the official UN website…
1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture
3. Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages
4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
8. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all
9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation, and foster innovation
10. Reduce inequality within and among countries
11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
12. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
13. Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts (taking note of agreements made by the UNFCCC forum)
14. Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
15. Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification and halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss
16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development
As you can see, this list goes far beyond “saving the environment” or “fighting climate change”.
It truly covers just about every realm of human activity.
Another thing that makes this new sustainable development agenda different is the unprecedented support that it is getting from the Vatican and from Pope Francis himself.
In fact, Pope Francis is actually going to travel to the UN and give an address to kick off the Sustainable Development Summit on September 25th…
His Holiness Pope Francis will visit the UN on 25 September 2015, and give an address to the UN General Assembly immediately ahead of the official opening of the UN Summit for the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda.
This Pope has been very open about his belief that climate change is one of the greatest dangers currently facing our world. Just a couple of weeks ago, he actually brought UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to the Vatican to speak about climate change and sustainable development. Here is a summary of what happened…
On 28 April, the Secretary-General met with His Holiness Pope Francis at the Vatican and later addressed senior religious leaders, along with the Presidents of Italy and Ecuador, Nobel laureates and leading scientists on climate change and sustainable development.
Amidst an unusually heavy rainstorm in Rome, participants at the historic meeting gathered within the ancient Vatican compound to discuss what the Secretary-General has called the “defining challenge of our time.”
The mere fact that a meeting took place between the religious and scientific communities on climate change was itself newsworthy. That it took place at the Vatican, was hosted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, and featured the Secretary-General as the keynote speaker was all the more striking.
In addition, Pope Francis is scheduled to release a major encyclical this summer which will be primarily focused on the environment and climate change. The following comes from the New York Times…
The much-anticipated environmental encyclical that Pope Francis plans to issue this summer is already being translated into the world’s major languages from the Latin final draft, so there’s no more tweaking to be done, several people close to the process have told me in recent weeks.
I think that we can get a good idea of the kind of language that we will see in this encyclical from another Vatican document which was recently released. It is entitled “Climate Change and The Common Good”, and it was produced by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. The following is a brief excerpt…
Unsustainable consumption coupled with a record human population and the uses of inappropriate technologies are causally linked with the destruction of the world’s sustainability and resilience. Widening inequalities of wealth and income, the world-wide disruption of the physical climate system and the loss of millions of species that sustain life are the grossest manifestations of unsustainability. The continued extraction of coal, oil and gas following the “business-as-usual mode” will soon create grave existential risks for the poorest three billion, and for generations yet unborn. Climate change resulting largely from unsustainable consumption by about 15% of the world’s population has become a dominant moral and ethical issue for society. There is still time to mitigate unmanageable climate changes and repair ecosystem damages, provided we reorient our attitude toward nature and, thereby, toward ourselves. Climate change is a global problem whose solution will depend on our stepping beyond national affiliations and coming together for the common good. Such transformational changes in attitudes would help foster the necessary institutional reforms and technological innovations for providing the energy sources that have negligible effects on global climate, atmospheric pollution and eco-systems, thus protecting generations yet to be born. Religious institutions can and should take the lead in bringing about that change in attitude towards Creation.
The Catholic Church, working with the leadership of other religions, can now take a decisive role by mobilizing public opinion and public funds to meet the energy needs of the poorest 3 billion people, thus allowing them to prepare for the challenges of unavoidable climate and eco-system changes. Such a bold and humanitarian action by the world’s religions acting in unison is certain to catalyze a public debate over how we can integrate societal choices, as prioritized under UN’s sustainable development goals, into sustainable economic development pathways for the 21st century, with projected population of 10 billion or more.
Under this Pope, the Vatican has become much more political than it was before, and sustainable development has become the Vatican’s number one political issue.
And did you notice the language about “the world’s religions acting in unison”? Clearly, the Vatican believes that it has the power to mobilize religious leaders all over the planet and have them work together to achieve the “UN’s sustainable development goals”.
I can never remember a time when the United Nations and the largest religious institution on the planet, the Catholic Church, have worked together so closely.
So what will the end result of all this be?
Should we be concerned about this new sustainable development agenda?

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.

Vaccines are called shots, and some kill.
Here’s where vaccine/vaccination issues and problems in the USA become ratcheted up to a fever pitch. May 1st, 2015 Congresswoman Frederica S Wilson (D-FL-24) introduced HR2232, The Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015
To amend the Public Health Service Act to condition receipt by States (and political subdivisions and public entities of States) of preventive health services grants on the establishment of a State requirement for students in public elementary and secondary schools to be vaccinated in accordance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, and for other purposes. 
It’s been referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. The bill’s language basically does away with all exemptions except a medical exemption using this language:
(A) certifying that the physician has personally examined the student during the preceding 12 months; and
(B) certifying that, in the physician’s opinion, the physical condition of the student is such that the student’s health would be endangered by the vaccination involved; and
(C) demonstrating (to the satisfaction of the individual in charge of the health program at the student’s school) that the physician’s opinion conforms to the accepted standard of medical care.
Note that “C” indicates students’ schools will be the determining ‘authority’ as [“to the satisfaction of the individual in charge of the health program at the student’s school”] regarding a child’s health / vaccine status, not the child’s parents! Parents, what do you have to say about that?
Since HR2232 basically provides funding to public schools based – and dependent – upon vaccination records, schools, in essence, will be the “keeper of the keys” regarding children. That, no doubt, is tantamount to forfeiture of children over to the state education system—something that reminds one of what happened in Russia under Stalin and the infamous “Children’s World.” 
Members of Congress and all parents need to wonder if such proposed legislation as HR2232 could become a prelude to what happened under Stalin:
Of course, millions could not escape Stalin’s Great Terror. Included among those affected by the purges were hundreds of thousands of children whose parents disappeared into the bowels of Lubyanka. Made orphans by the state, these children of “enemies of the people” became wards of the state. The lucky were taken in by brave relatives or merely dispatched to “children’s homes” (detdomy / детдомы); the less fortunate were swept up into the network of children’s prison labor camps that had emerged in the the mid 1930s. 
I offer that HR2232 is the slipperiest of all slopes heading in the direction of everything un-American, un-Constitutional and definitely posturing drumbeats of totalitarianism, which is defined as
a political system in which the state holds total authority over the society and seeks to control all aspects of public and private life wherever possible. 
[CJF emphasis added]
Either Congresswoman Wilson’s American dream has turned into a nightmare affecting everyone or she’s been visited by too many Big Pharma lobbyists. If ever there were a proposed piece of legislation that needs to be opposed, HR2232 is it!
Instead of HR2232, there is legislation that definitely needs to be introduced:
- Make the U.S. CDC/FDA responsible for performing safety tests, independent of Big Pharma and vaccine manufacturers, confirming all vaccines are guaranteed not to cause cancer or birth defects or impede fertility and prevent reproduction.
- Prohibit vaccines from containing Thimerosal [49.6% ethylmercury], aluminum in any of 4 formulations, formaldehyde, plus other toxic and cancer-causing chemicals or neurotoxins during any stage of vaccine manufacture.
- Prohibit Big Pharma from gifting members of Congress political campaigns.
Just in case readers need a reminder about what’s at stake with vaccines, and forced vaccinations, the folks at Vaccine Liberation Army created a public service PowerPoint presentation that drives home serious issues that federal and state health agencies constantly push under a “consensus rug” or as coincidental.
Slide 30 points out something very interesting—and even factual about vaccines; the information is taken from none other than St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital “Inpatient Visiting Guidelines.”  Here’s what St Jude’s has to say:
For an immune-suppressed child, the risk of infection from a live, attenuated virus vaccine is small compared to the risk of infection from exposure to someone with a vaccine-preventable disease. It is still recommended for your immune suppressed child:
To avoid contact with a person who has a rash after recently receiving the chickenpox (varicella) vaccine.
To avoid contact with a person who has received an intranasal flu vaccine within one week. This applies only if your child is severely immune suppressed, such as in the hospital after a recent bone marrow transplant. There is no similar risk with the inactivated, injectable flu vaccine.
If a household contact (infant) has recently received rotavirus vaccination, all family members should wash their hands thoroughly and frequently after contact with the vaccinated infant, especially when changing diapers.
- Household contacts should not receive the oral polio vaccine. Note that the oral polio vaccine is not used in the United States. 
What does that tell you? It says unequivocally that recently vaccinated individuals can spread the very diseases they have been vaccinated against! So, if vaccines were so ‘safe’ and ‘fool-proof’, why should parents be concerned about unvaccinated children? It’s the vaccinated who are spreading diseases and also contracting the very diseases for which they have been vaccinated. Here’s some interesting spin about whooping cough, which readers may find somewhat amusing for its apparent attempt at ‘circular’ logic. Wikipedia defines circular logic as “a logical fallacy in which the reasoner begins with what they are trying to end with.”
On slide 11 we see every parent’s worst nightmare: a vaccine-induced adverse event. The photograph below is that of Ian Gromowski. This poor child died at 47 days old, never having left the hospital after a severe reaction to his Hepatitis B shot—a vaccine that is medically unnecessary unless the birth mother tested positive for Hepatitis B, in my opinion. Hepatitis B is contracted via dirty street drugs needles and sexual activity!
The USA has now reached what Dr. Benjamin Rush, MD, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, feared when he said, “The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class will constitute the Bastille [famous French prison in 1700s] of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic.”
Congresswoman Wilson’s HR2232 seems to fit that definition.
As whooping cough grows, study finds vaccine wanes

If the government does not like the way that you are raising your kids, they will come in and grab them at any time without giving any warning whatsoever. Of course this is completely and totally unlawful, but it has been happening all over America. The most recent example of this that has made national headlines is particularly egregious. Joe and Nicole Naugler of Breckinridge County, Kentucky just had their 10 children brutally ripped away from them just because the government does not approve of how they are living their lives and how they are educating their young ones. Let’s be very clear about this – Joe and Nicole had done nothing to violate the law whatsoever. All of their kids were happy, healthy and very intelligent. But because the control freaks running things in Kentucky got wind of their “off the grid lifestyle”, they have now had all of their children unlawfully abducted from them.
A lot of my readers also lead “off the grid” lifestyles similar to what the Nauglers had been enjoying. The Nauglers own 26 acres in a remote area of Breckinridge County, and their family has been described as “extremely happy”. But despite never giving them a single warning or a single indication that anything was ever wrong, Kentucky police raided their home on May 6th. The following is how the raid was described on a website dedicated to this case…
On May 6th, 2015, Breckinridge Co. Sheriff’s officers came to their home, acting on an anonymous tip, and entered their property and home without a warrant and without probable cause. Nicole was at home with the two oldest children, while Joe was away with the others. When the officers left the home, they attempted to block the access road to the family property. Nicole and the two boys got in their car to leave the family property. They got only a short way down the road before the officers pulled Nicole over.
During this stop, sheriffs deputies took their two oldest boys from Nicole’s custody, providing her no justification or documentation to support their action. Nicole was able to contact Joe briefly by telephone, but only for a short period of time, because she needed to use her phone to record the events.
At that point, Nicole had been taken into custody for disorderly conduct (for not passively allowing the Sheriff to take her boys) and resisting arrest. Even though she is 5 months pregnant, she was slammed belly first into the cop car and bruised and scraped on both arms.
And people wonder why there is such an uproar about police brutality in this country…
How in the world can a police officer ever justify treating a pregnant woman like that? The police officer that treated Nicole like that should immediately resign. Talk about an utter disgrace. You do not ever treat a pregnant woman like that.
But this is America, where we are turning a little bit more into Nazi Germany every single day.
You can listen to audio of Nicole’s shocking arrest right here.
When Joe arrived on the scene, the police continued to act like Gestapo thugs…
Joe was able to arrange transportation to meet his wife where the stop had taken place. Joe attempted to get out of the car to speak with the officers and his wife, and to recover the vehicle Nicole had been driving. The Sheriff, with his hand on his sidearm, ordered Joe back into the car. Joe complied with that request. The sheriff informed Joe that he had every intention of making this as difficult as possible for them and that their car would be impounded, despite the fact that Joe was there onsite to recover it.
A friend, who had driven Joe to the location, got out of the car to speak with the Sheriff. She was able to convince the Sheriff to let Joe recover the vehicle. Joe also recovered Nicole’s cell phone, which had been recording audio the entire time.
The Sheriff ordered Joe to turn the remaining eight children over to Breckinridge County Sheriff’s deputies by 10:00 a.m., and threatened him with felony charges if he does not comply.
Joe did comply with the Sheriff’s order, and now their kids have been scattered by CPS among families in four separate counties…
As of now, officials have placed the children with four families in four different counties, and as of Friday morning, the parents had not spoken with them. The four families are families that CPS chose – families the Nauglers don’t know.
Shame on you Kentucky. You are supposed to be better than this.
One of the most disturbing elements of this entire incident is that Child Protective Services never visited the Nauglers a single time and never gave them any indication that anything was wrong. The following comes from Off The Grid News…
Child Protective Services never visited the home, said Ellsworth, who believes the arrests took place because of the parents’ choice of “unschooling” for their children, and because of their simple way of life that some would call backwards. The family’s Facebook page calls it a “back to basics life.” They have a garden and raise animals. Deputies apparently were concerned about whether the children’s needs were being met, but friends say they personally have no concerns — and that the children are blessed to have Joe and Nicole as their parents.
How would you like it if government thugs raided your home and took your children away because they considered your lifestyle to be “backwards”?
What in the world is happening to this country?
Like I said earlier, what happened to the Nauglers is not an isolated incident. These kinds of things are happening all over the nation. For example, just consider the abuse that one homeschooling family received in New Jersey…
Meanwhile, in New Jersey, a WND report highlights how parents were interrogated by a CPS caseworker who questioned Christopher Zimmer and his wife Nicole, “on everything from their son’s homeschool education to questions about vaccines and guns in the house.”
Michelle Marchese aggressively demanded to enter the property after asserting Christopher Zimmer Jr. was not getting a “proper education.” Police subsequently arrived and allowed Marchese to enter the home before conducting a warrantless search.
The Zimmers are now suing the CPS for $60 million in a case before the U.S. District Court in Trenton.
I very much hope that the Zimmers win that case and collect a huge monetary award.
All over the nation, CPS officials are running around acting like little dictators and trampling the law. They need the courts to send them a clear message that this is a nation where the rule of law still applies.
If we do not stand with families like the Nauglers, control freak bureaucrats will continue to harass families that have chosen to live a “basic” lifestyle all over the nation. So let’s stand with them and make this case viral all over the Internet.
And Kentucky, get your act together and send those kids back home. You are supposed to be so much better than this.

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…..

The career political class is the quintessential predatory clique. If you remember and understand any aspect about politics, let it be the nature of the people who devote their lives to a band of thieves. Forget about the seeming dissimilarities in ideology, the political culture maintains a common conduct. Ignore the rhetoric that resembles opposing viewpoints, the club of controllers protects each other. And if you ever believed in heroes and are still waiting for a savior, your disappointment will eventually turn into despair. What sustains the process of government are the deception of its vice and the refusal of the public to admit that the game never changes.
The charlatans that are attracted to it become players in this adventure of egotism and are filled with enough vanity to pay off the federal debt. The sheer idea that a lifetime devoted to national service is a noble pursuit corrupts the body politic and perverts anyone who dreams of change, while yearning for public adoration. Examine the results of the scam that grows out of the mindset that avows – we are from the government and we are here to help you . . .
Politicians who seek elected office are driven by the allure of power. Some may campaign on a platform of helping the people, while most scheme to grow the agencies and scope of the State. Those who have romantic dreams of reform in the beginning will mutate into guardians of the system that feeds the delusion that they make a difference. These fakes deceive themselves that good comes out of their legislation and that society improves with every program. They are frauds because their primary device is deceit. And they are cowards because they do not dare reveal their true motivations. The public would never understand, they have become irreplaceable!
What elected politician devotes their efforts to defending individual Liberty? Passing a federal law to impose compliance in order to free people is preposterous. But that is the principal focus of legislation. The government will compel liberation under the rules that suit the political class. The reasoning that the top down knows best permeates the execution of control. When a dubious authority is enacted to empower a bureaucracy, the plan of mutual dependence is fostered. Symbiosis produces the appearance of periodic friction, but the reciprocity that is shared between the lawmaker and the bureaucrat is rooted in correspondent interest.
This is the reason why cover-ups become the norm. Factions that naturally vie for dominance will close ranks, when the vile organism is threatened. The common bond of alliance supersedes any internal differences. The decisive criminal syndicate is the ultimate gravy train. Coerced and binding taxes, which steal from the wealth creators and enhance the efficacy of the thieves, who demand even more tribute, is the real constitution that defines the STATE. Enforcement and regulation is the aim of the bureaucrat as is the source of their own influence. Don’t be hoodwinked into thinking there is a difference between the elected politician and the commissar.
Again just examine the record! Retirement from office or losing an election is rewarded with capacious pensions. Those skillful in developing their nefarious talents or fortuitous in gathering derogatory dirt will extort their usefulness into a cabinet position. For those not so gifted, lobbying additional legislation, bribing the regulator or a simple cajole for a chum – becomes the full time occupation for the former office holder. Once an addictive infatuation, a venture into Washington DC turns into an enduring Beltway obsession, and a permanent sentence of enslavement for the people.
Is this the kind of public service that benefits the citizen? This formula for organizing society and maintaining basic civic order is a ruse. The politician as a professional is ludicrous. A continual career on the public dole is incompatible with good government. A shift from congressman to a lobbyist doesn’t return one to the private sector, but just perpetrates and promotes the pernicious union of State/Capitalism. If you think this is a harsh assessment, explain how so many politicians and bureaucrats become rich while on the public payroll? Do you really think that their accumulation of financial rewards is confined to their salaries? Speaking gigs are payola and book deals are payoffs. Appointments to NGO’s – non government organizations – think tanks and quasi public institutions are the charity of easy compensation for serving the elite culture.
This revolving door always slams shut in our faces, but most of the public is oblivious to the sting. They are more consumed with the perceived gains they can extract from the system. This attitude of apathy in accountability for the entire political class is one of the main causes of the nation’s demise. We all know that politicians get away with murder, so why sweat the small stuff! As long as I get my government check, those free services and expanded programs isn’t that the purpose of the general welfare? So goes the rationale of the masses, following the exact plan of the political class.
This game has no amusement value. Its only entertainment is for the enjoyment of the career politician. Their pleasure should not be our anguish. Their pastime need not be our pain. Our future should be one that promotes hope. This dreadful game needs to end. A proper ethos of true public service must be restored in order to achieve a national purpose – the Liberty of each individual citizen . . .
People constantly speak of “the government” doing this or that, as they might speak of God doing it. But the government is really nothing but a group of men, and usually they are very inferior men. They may have some better man working for them, but they themselves are seldom worthy of any respect. – H.L. Mencken

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.
- Reduce your dependence on the power grid with rain barrels, gray water systems, line drying, and solar lighting.
- Eat simple food you prepare from scratch.
- Produce as much of your own food as possible.
- Learn to make pantry basics like vinegar, sourdough, and cultured dairy products.
- Learn to preserve your harvests to see you through the lean days of winter.
- 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.
- Learn to forage.
- Use “old-fashioned” alternatives for disposable things like diapers, wipes, feminine hygiene supplies, paper towels, and the like.
- Learn to make cleaning supplies and soaps, especially from accessible supplies (like vinegar, ash, and foraged natural ingredients).
- Look for the thrifty answer using things you have on hand, instead of purchasing a solution to every problem.
- Fix things that are broken instead of replacing them.
- 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.
- Learn about natural remedies from accessible sources.
- Learn to protect your family and property.
- 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 Survival, The Survival Mom, SHTFplan, 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.

Legal corruption in the US has been exposed by a brilliant woman whose name is Tamah Jada Clark. She recently served a most unusual notice upon the courts in Georgia. It is highly unlikely you will ever have seen something like this! Clark’s legal Notice, entitled “To F*ck This Court and Everything that it Stands For“, is a highly entertaining and knowledgeable piece of writing. It displays a great depth of knowledge of law, the American legal system, natural and unalienable rights, the history of the United States and other principles of sovereignty, mixed with raw emotion and colorful expletives. It is fueled with tremendous knowledge and righteous anger, directed against a high-up representative of a system that is seeking to enslave the overwhelming majority of mankind. To some, it may seem unnecessarily crude or not academic or dry enough; but the reason I love it is because it encapsulates exactly the kind of spirit humanity needs to rise up, kick out the impostors, and attain global peace and freedom.
(Warning: Graphic Language)
Corrupt Judge Willis Hunt the Target of Clark’s Forceful Words
Clark has commented upon The Freedom Articles before, in my article entitled “16th Amendment Income Tax Fraud: Evidence Shows it Was Never Ratified!“, where she links to her free and well researched guide “Why Most Americans Do Not Inherently Owe Federal Income Taxes“. In that guide she explains how judge Willis Hunt has repeatedly engaged in legal corruption and denied her justice, and how she is consequently exposing him and the entire system he represents. It is well worth reading. The basis is simple yet widely misunderstood: there is a big difference between a federal citizen and a state citizen. They are, in Clark’s words, “mutually exclusive concepts”. A federal citizen is a creation of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution in 1868, which created a whole new class of citizenry, ostensibly to ensure everyone was equal and to stop slavery. However, like many aspects of the global conspiracy, there is always the public reason for doing something, and the real reason for doing something.
US Federal Citizenship is a Trap to Strip You of Your Sovereignty
US Federal citizenship may seem like a dandy idea until you read the fine print. By accepting that title, you immediately give up sovereignty, rights and freedoms. Why? Because the real power and authority in American society (and any society for that matter) comes from The People. The People got together and formed States. The States then got together and formed a union to create a loose, weak, decentralized Federal Government, bound by the Constitution. That Federal Government then creates citizens. Here is an (abridged) chain of authority (there is more to the story than this, because the Federal Government has also created fake States etc. under its corporate jurisdiction, but this will do for illustration):
We The People
14th Amendment “federal citizen”
It is a maxim of law that he who creates, controls. The Federal Government is inviting you to step out of your role as one of “We the People” or your title as state citizen, and to step into being a federal citizen. You are then moving from being one of the owners, masters and creators of society, to one of the lowliest employees/slaves in the hierarchy.
Some Excerpts from Clark’s Notice
Clark nails the judge for trying to get away with dismissing her case on a faulty legal basis. Here are some excerpts from it:
“You have presented federal rights and laws to defeat unalienable human rights and laws that supersede them both.”
“The federal government was not created to replace the state governments by any means … after having been oppressed by the King of Great Britain, is that what the Founding Fathers did? They went through Hell and fought the War for Independence just to relinquish their citizens to the federal government and set it up to be more oppressive than the King of Great Britain could ever have been? I think not.”
“Any idiot can take a look into the history of American jurisprudence through studying congressional records, U.S. Supreme court cases, etc. – as I have done – to realize that these United States of America have been overthrown. The American people – due to their own neglect of civic duty and responsibility to educate themselves and their children – have allowed this to happen.”
Beware of Giving Up Unalienable Rights for Civil Rights and Privileges
The moral to the story in all of this is simple: don’t give up your inherent, unalienable, natural rights for Government-granted privileges. The Founding Fathers and all who fought in the battles to break free of King George and the European bankers (the Rothschilds) were striving to set up a society where people “came with” intrinsic rights attached, just by virtue of being alive. These rights could never be legislated or regulated out of existence.
Whether a society shines with freedom or descends into tyranny hinges on matter such as rights vs. privileges, and state citizens vs. federal citizens. Make sure you know the difference, and don’t fall for the legal corruption trying to convince you otherwise.
Monday is the court-ordered deadline for the government to explain a secretive policy that allows it to use a “kill switch” on cell phone service among the population. The policy, adopted by the Department of Homeland Security in 2005, is called Standard Operating Procedure 303 and allows
“…for the orderly shut-down and restoration of wireless services during critical emergencies such as the threat of radio-activated improvised explosive devices.”
The implementation of the policy was a reaction to the 2005 London subway bombing and was deemed necessary for national security. In 2005, all cell service in New York’s Hudson Tunnel was cut off for two weeks—a move that by the DHS’s own admission created
“disorder for both Government and the private sector at a time when use of the communications infrastructure was most needed.”
Due to the secrecy surrounding the policy, there is no concrete documentation to suggest that SOP 303 has been used to cut cell service. In 2011, however, all cell phone communication was cut on San Francisco’s BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit). This was done to disrupt a protest against a violent police officer who killed a homeless man. That same year, the White House claimed that the government had the right to
“control private communications systems in the United States during times of war or other national emergencies.”
In an effort to learn more about the justification for the BART shut down, the Electronic Privacy Information Center filed a FOIA request with DHS in July of 2012. DHS claimed it could not find any relevant documentation, leading EPIC to file a FOIA lawsuit. A lower federal court found the agency insufficiently complied with the request. By February of 2015, however, a higher court sided with a DHS appeal and ruled that
“the [DHS] permissibly withheld much, if not all of SOP 303, because its release…could reasonably be expected to endanger individuals’ lives or physical safety . . . .”
In spite of the federal government’s aggressive attempts to keep this information secret, EPIC filed a request last month for the court to revisit its decision, arguing that “if left in place, [it] would create an untethered ‘national security’ exemption.” This time, the court gave the government until this Monday, April 27, to explain the details of its policy, including under what conditions it may be implemented.
Alan Butler, a lawyer for EPIC, explained plainly that,
“We’re not asking for detailed information about how [SOP 303] works … but about the rationale and the policy guidelines.”
The push toward a “kill switch” has been building for years (and predates cell phones and the Internet). In July of 2012, Obama signed an Executive Order that “granted the authority to seize private facilities when necessary, effectively shutting down or limiting civilian communications.” In 2010, a Senate Subcommittee on “Homeland Security” approved a kill-switch for the Internet and in 2014, the House of Representatives introduced a cell phone kill switch bill in the name of preventing smartphone theft. In August of that same year, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill requiring all smart phones made after July 2015 to have a built in kill switch. The bill has been criticized for granting dangerous power to both law enforcement and hackers.
The use of a kill switch has also been lambasted for what some view as an inability to prevent terrorist attacks. In fact, previous terror attacks have relied not on cellular communication, but merely on an alarm clock built into a phone—which would be unaffected by the use of a kill switch.
The dangers of granting such broad authority to government seem not only abundant, but obvious. As seen in the 2011 BART instance, the state is more than willing to dismantle communication for reasons beyond national security. The power to disrupt the citizens’ right to organize protests against state action is an unconscionable effort to control the population and silence dissent. That the government is so resistant to explain this power is reason enough to distrust it.
As Howard Feld, Senior Vice President of Public Knowledge, a public advocacy group, pointed out,
“Understanding a policy should not compromise national security.”
The DHS stubbornly disagreed. Asked to explain the decision to withhold basic procedural information from the public on the program, it responded only with,
“We have no comment on this.”
Although the court-mandated deadline has come and gone — as of midnight yesterday — without a response from the government, this story will be updated when and if they ever decide to offer an explanation for the shrouded policy.

A bill that would heavily diminish the effect of federal programs that militarize local police was signed into law on Thursday.
Introduced by Rep. Nicholas Schwaderer (R-Superior), House Bill 330 (HB330) bans state or local law enforcement from receiving significant classes of military equipment from the Pentagon’s “1033 Program.” It passed by a 46-1 vote in the state Senate and by a 79-20 vote in the state House. On Thursday, Gov. Steve Bullock signed it into law.
The new law will prohibit state or local law enforcement agencies from receiving drones that are armored, weaponized, or both; aircraft that are combat configured or combat coded; grenades or similar explosives and grenade launchers; silencers; and “militarized armored vehicles” from federal military surplus programs.
But, as The Guardian reported last fall, handouts of such equipment from the Pentagon are far from the only way that the federal government has been militarizing local police. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) grants used to purchase such equipment amount to three times the value of the equipment given away by the Pentagon.
HB330 closes this loophole by banning law enforcement agencies from purchasing such military equipment with federal grants. They could continue to purchase them, but would have to use state or local funds, and the agencies would have to give public notice within 14 days of a request for any such local purchase.
“This foundation sets a massive precedent in Montana and the country as to what kind of society we want to have,” Schwaderer said of his bill. “If you get to the point where you need a grenade launcher, we’ve got the National Guard.”
Last month, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill into law that, while not as comprehensive as the Montana bill, prohibits receipt of equipment from the 1033 program without an express authorization from the local governing body. This made his state the first to take a step towards stopping the federal militarization of police.
“By making it a local decision, the New Jersey law is a great first step, but the Montana law takes things to the next level,” said Mike Maharrey of the Tenth Amendment Center. “It closes loopholes and covers almost all the bases. The next step would be to expand the equipment banned, and we’re hopeful that good people in Montana will work on that next session.”
FEDERAL SURPLUS AND GRANT MONEY
Through the federal 1033 Program, local police departments procure military grade weapons, including automatic assault rifles, body armor and mine resistant armored vehicles – essentially unarmed tanks. Police departments can even get their hands on military helicopters and other aircraft.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) runs the “Homeland Security Grant Program,” which in 2013 gave more than $900 million in counterterrorism funds to state and local police. According to a 2012 Senate report, this money has been used to purchase tactical vehicles, drones, and even tanks with little obvious benefit to public safety. And, according to ProPublica, “In 1994, the Justice Department and the Pentagon funded a five-year program to adapt military security and surveillance technology for local police departments that they would otherwise not be able to afford.”
Local agencies almost never have the funds needed to purchase this kind of equipment, and federal money is the only way they can afford it. By banning purchases with federal funding, HB330 would effectively nullify the effect of such federal “grant” programs.
COMMAND AND CONTROL
Arming ‘peace officers’ like they’re ready to occupy an enemy city is totally contrary to the society envisioned by the Founders. They’ve turned ‘protect and serve’ into ‘command and control.’
In the 1980s, the federal government began arming, funding and training local police forces, turning peace officers into soldiers to fight in its unconstitutional “War on Drugs.” The militarization went into hyper-drive after 9/11 when a second front opened up – the “War on Terror.”
By stripping state and local police of this military-grade gear and requiring them to report on their acquisition and use, it makes them less likely to cooperate with the feds and removes incentives for partnerships.
“Sunshine is the salve of good government,” Schwaderer said.
That is exactly what HB330 will start to bring to Montana.

The Obama administration is unfairly blocking tens of thousands of military veterans from owning guns, a Republican senator is charging.
The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is filled with military veterans who are essentially banned from owning guns, even though they may not be a danger to society, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote this week in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder.
On the April 20 episode of Real Politik James speaks with historian and bestselling author James Perloff about the hidden elite influences on Western societies, politics and history over the past century. Mr. Perloff is the author of, most recently, Truth is a Lonely Warrior: Unmasking the Forces Behind Global Destruction (2013) and the classic The Shadows of Power: The Council on Foreign Relations and the American Decline (1988). He has conducted research and published articles on America’s hidden history for over thirty years.
Perloff has also written the script for the soon-to-be-released Free Mind Films feature length production, Shadow Ring, also largely based on his historical research.
The two discuss Perloff’s most recent book, specifically addressing elite influences on the media, culture, and Americans’ understanding of their national history.

In Truth is a Lonely Warrior James spends significant time examining media and culture, examining early in the book how media power is concentrating more and more into fewer hands.
This oligarchy … knew that to get public acceptance of its wars and its trade treaties and so forth, you’ve got to influence public opinion. But what better way than the media? And that’s why today you have over 90% of the media being owned by six corporations. Those six corporations are Time Warner, Walt Disney, Viacom, Newscorp, CBS and NBC Universal. In 1983 it was 50 corporations controlling 90% of America’s media. You can see how these mergers of entertainment and news are generating this monopoly where it’s almost comparable to a communist state, where you have just six corporations running everything. And there’s not much difference between these corporations.
… As I like to point out, it’s the boss who calls the shots. Since these TV stations, journals, and movie studios have the same owner they cannot step outside the lines. In fact, I was the guest on one alternative media network, and the host of that particular radio show told me that he used to work for one of these big, 50,000 watt radio stations. He had a talk show, and one day he did a show on 9/11. Then he was called in to the [manager’s] office and told, “You never talk about 9/11 on this station again.” That’s why he left and went in to alternative media. Anyone can investigate this fairly easily. I have a blog post on my website, called “A Century of Mainstream Media Lies,” which demonstrates how the media has in fact been used to give the public false illusions that have led us in to wars and other negative developments.
James was a contributor to the John Birch Society’s main organ, The New American, for over thirty years. Since he became a more vocal critic of Zionism, however, he has stopped publishing there to avoid confirming the well-known smear of that organization’s alleged anti-semitism. “They were the original truth movement back in the seventies when I joined them,” he observes.
They were already talking about the Council on Foreign Relations and Federal Reserve. And, really there was no other mass organization that was doing that. Of course, they were typically labelled “Nazi,” “racist,” when in fact they weren’t that at all. I can guarantee you, they never mentioned Zionism … They were the alternative media choice for a lot of people. There weren’t too many others. Back when I was a kid in the sixties growing up in the Boston area, if you wanted to get news there were very limited choices. You could either read the Boston Globe or the Boston Herald–the Globe represented basically the Democratic Party point of view and the Herald represented the Republican point of view–or you could watch the three TV networks–CBS, NBC and ABC, and beyond that what could you do? If you went to the public library and looked up “Federal Reserve” you would not find Eustace Mullins’ book there. G. Edward Griffin had not written his book yet. And so all you had was what the World Book Encyclopaedia had to say about the Federal Reserve and what the government wanted you to know, unless you happened to know somebody in the Birch Society, or one of the other very few alternative groups back then. There was no internet. You had no way of finding out the truth, and that’s one of the advantages today we have with shows like this and with the internet we can all interconnect and communicate. And so many people have learned the truth as a result of this modern technology.
In his research on elites James Perloff has come to the conclusion that there are several methods elites use for destabilizing countries, with wars being the most effective. Yet other techniques, he argues, involve a more subtle undermining of a nation’s political processes and culture that could be easily confused with modernization. He refers to these as
secondary means of destroying national sovereignty to restructure the world and make way for this new world order and world government … The Illuminati have long opposed monarchies. and the reason is quite simple, Let’s say that you’re a Rothschild bankster, and you want to take over an imaginary country, Finlandia. And Findlandia is ruled by a king. You have a big problem, because even though you’re a rich Rothschild banker you can’t get in to the bloodline of that king. That is one of major reasons why they have funded revolutions over the years, to overthrow kings and replace them, if not with a communist dictatorship like in the Soviet Union, with a democracy.
The reason that the Illuminati are very fond of democracy–remember “Make the world safe for democracy”–is that they know that with their wealth, that to control a nation and a democracy is 51% of the vote. With your wealth and you running the media, getting 51% of the vote is a cinch.
Perloff asserts that the handful of powerful families and interests routinely use religion and culture as a means by which to gain social and political control, and over the past several decades there can be little confusion over the fact that old traditions and symbols have been replaced by new ones, often delivered through new media conduits such as television. “What they call the ‘Golden Age of Television,’” he notes, “the years of I Love Lucy and Sargent Bilko and The Honeymooners, was designed to get Americans to buy televisions. Because if you had the stuff that you see on TV now then–this occultic stuff and political agendas being advanced on television then like it is now people would not have bought televisions. We had a more traditional moral code back then across the nation, so to get the televisions into the home they had to have this wholesome, G-rated entertainment, right? You had Superman, who would talk about, “Truth, Justice, and the American Way,” right? Father Knows Best. You could never have a show by that name now.”
By the early 1960s television programming began to change, and in 1964 The Beatles were introduced to American audiences, spearheading a set of unmistakably new social sensibilities via their image and music that would be emulated by young men throughout the remainder of the decade. “Dr. John Coleman, former officer at MI6, said The Beatles were really a creation of British intelligence and the Tavistock Institute, which is a think tank devoted to mind control. When we were hippies we always thought of The Beatles as kind of these icons who revolted against the establishment. It turns out that they were actually part of the establishment and the whole dialectic of getting a revolution going and changing the basis of American culture and American thinking.”
