NYPD Union Declares Itself a “Wartime” Police Department

Following the shooting that killed two New York police officers, the NYPD’s union has issued a statement announcing that in response, it has become a “wartime” police department.

As previously reported, Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were killed by Ismaaiyl Brinsley, after he who ambushed and shot them both, in an alleged attempt to avenge the death of Eric Garner. Brinsley’s ambush of the two officers occurred shortly after he shot and wounded his ex-girlfriend in Baltimore, and then posted his plans to strike back at the police to her Instagram account.

According to the New York Post, Liu and Ramos were “working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant,” when they were “shot point-blank in the head” by Brinsley.

Newsmax reported that the NYPD’s union, the New York Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, issued a statement regarding the way the department is responding to this incident, and the way it is working to prevent future threats:

Starting IMMEDIATELY: At least two units are to respond to EVERY call, no matter the condition or severity, no matter what type of job is pending, or what the opinion of the patrol supervisor happens to be.”

The statement went on to say that from this point forward, there would be no unnecessary arrests by New York police officers.

The Feds Want to Replace Your Driver’s License with a National ID Card

REAL ID Act Compliance by State. Image credit: Kurykh (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0)]

If you live in Arizona, Louisiana, New York, or one of more than a dozen other states, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has bad news for you. Come January 19, your driver’s license will no longer allow you access to certain federal facilities. Unless DHS changes its mind. Again.

In 2005, Congress passed a bill called the Real ID Act, based upon recommendations made by the 9/11 Commission. Whether or not you’ve heard of the law depends largely upon how in tune you are with conspiracy theories. Where you live matters, too, because nearly a decade after the law’s passage, only 19 states actually comply with its standards.

Real ID’s stated intent is to ensure that all jurisdictions issuing driver’s licenses and other identification meet federal stand­ards, “which should inhibit terrorists’ ability to evade detection by using fraudulent identification.” Basically, the government is upping the ante on what it will accept as valid forms of ID at federal facilities, nuclear power plants, and—here’s the biggie—federally regulated airline flights (i.e., most of them).

Opponents fear that Real ID will lead to a national identity card like those issued by “totalitarian” governments and that its requirement that states share data from their department of motor vehicle databases is an invasion of privacy. Others object because Congress didn’t offer financial backing to help states implement Real ID. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) contends that the program wastes state resources while doing little to combat terrorism, calling it a “bureaucratic nightmare.”

REAL ID Act

The REAL ID Act of 2005, Pub.L. 109–13, 119 Stat. 302, enacted May 11, 2005, was an Act of Congress that modified U.S. federal law pertaining to security, authentication, and issuance procedures standards for the state driver’s licenses and identification (ID) cards, as well as various immigration issues pertaining to terrorism.

The law sets forth requirements for state driver’s licenses and ID cards to be accepted by the federal government for “official purposes”, as defined by the Secretary of Homeland Security. The Secretary of Homeland Security has currently defined “official purposes” as presenting state driver’s licenses and identification cards for boarding commercially operated airline flights and entering federal buildings and nuclear power plants, although the law gives the Secretary the unlimited authority to require a “federal identification” for any other purposes that the Secretary shall determine.

The REAL ID Act implements the following:

  • Title II of the act establishes new federal standards for state-issued driver licenses and non-driver identification cards.
  • Changing visa limits for temporary workers, nurses, and Australian citizens.
  • Funding some reports and pilot projects related to border security.
  • Introducing rules covering “delivery bonds” (similar to bail bonds but for aliens who have been released pending hearings).
  • Updating and tightening the laws on application for asylum and deportation of aliens for terrorist activity.
  • Waiving laws that interfere with construction of physical barriers at the borders.

On December 20, 2013, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that implementation of Phase 1 would begin on January 20, 2014, which followed a yearlong period of “deferred enforcement”. As of January 2014, 21 states are compliant, 20 states and territories have been granted renewable extensions (until October 10, 2014), and 15 states and territories are noncompliant (but are eligible for extensions). There are four planned phases, three of which apply to areas that affect relatively few U.S. citizens—e.g., DHS headquarters, nuclear power plants, and restricted and semi-restricted federal facilities. The timeline for Phase 4, which applies to boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft, will be determined after DHS conducts an evaluation of how the first three phases were implemented. To “ensure that the public has ample advanced [sic] notice”, DHS says that Phase 4 will not be implemented before January 1, 2016

Utah Demands Feds Surrender Lands by Dec. 31

Formally demanding that Washington, D.C., relinquish control over more than 30 million acres of valuable land

With the federal government engaged in a de facto unconstitutional occupation of some two thirds of Utah’s territory, citizens of the state and their elected representatives have had just about enough. So, on December 31, the State of Utah is formally demanding that Washington, D.C., relinquish control over more than 30 million acres of valuable land currently controlled by various federal bureaucracies.

While apparatchiks for an all-powerful U.S. government and far-left activists are fuming over the plan, Utah lawmakers, citizens, and experts say the time has come for the state to manage — and profit from — its own resources. Constitutionally speaking, experts say the lands should have gone to state control generations ago, as the federal government promised when Utah became a state.

The escalating battle now brewing between the feds and Utah formally got underway in in 2012, when Republican Gov. Gary Herbert, riding a wave of public outrage over federal abuses and land grabs, signed the popular Transfer of Public Lands Act. Among other elements, the law calls on the federal government to hand over control of public lands purportedly owned by the U.S. government within Utah’s borders.

Texas State Bill Will Nullify All Federal Unconstitutional Acts

Texas State Bill Will Nullify All Federal Unconstitutional Acts

Texas lawmaker Dan Flynn has introduced legislation that would invalidate within the sovereign borders of his state every act of the federal government that exceeds its constitutionally derived authority.

State Representative Dan Flynn’s bill — House Bill 98 — denies to the federal government:

the power to take any legislative, executive, or judicial action that violates the constitution, specifically including those actions that unconstitutionally undermine, diminish, or disregard the balance of powers between the states and the federal government established by the constitution.

Flynn goes on to cite chapter and verse of the Constitution and the principles of federalism in defense of his position that the state of Texas retains the power to refuse to carry out federal mandates that are not specifically authorized in the Constitution’s enumeration of federal powers.

Beyond his understanding of core concepts of federalism, Flynn is to be commended for the bold warning he included in his legislation:

This Act serves as notice from this state to the federal government to cease and desist any and all unconstitutional activities that are outside the scope of the power delegated to it by the United States Constitution, including those activities that unconstitutionally undermine, diminish, or disregard the balance of powers between the states and the federal government established by the constitution.

This state and its people retain their sovereign power to regulate the affairs of this state, subject only to the limitations prescribed by the United States Constitution.

Nothing more needs to be said. Flynn’s bill, officially titled the Texas Balance of Powers Act, is a full-throated defiance of federal tyranny and attempts to subjugate the states into nothing more that administrative sub-units of the plutocracy on the Potomac.

Representative Flynn seems to appreciate the fact that states are not left defenseless in the battle to fight the cancer of consolidation. There is a remedy — a “rightful remedy” — that can immediately retrench the federal government’s constant overreaching. This antidote can stop the poison of all unconstitutional federal acts and executive orders at the state borders and prevent them from working on the people.

The remedy for federal tyranny is nullification, and applying it liberally will leave our states and our nation healthier and happier.

The bill creates a Joint Legislative Committee on Nullification composed of key officers in the Texas state government that will be charged with “review[ing] any federal action to determine whether the action is an unconstitutional federal action.”

Texas — and her sister states — retain this right of refusal owing to their role as creators of the federal government.

Former CIA Chief: ISIS to Attack U.S. Soon

Former CIA Chief: ISIS to Attack U.S. Soon

Former CIA Director Mike Morrell said terrorists will attack the U.S. “sometime over the next year or so, guaranteed.”

Morrell was commenting on the current Sydney, Australia, hostage situation on CBS Monday when he claimed jihadist militants will likely carry out a similar operation in the U.S.

“What concerns me the most is we’re going see this kind of terrorism around the world and we’re going to see it here,” he stated. “We need to be prepared for that.”

“You know, it shouldn’t surprise people when this happens here sometime over the next year or so, guaranteed.”

The hostage situation in Australia wasn’t surprising, Morrell said, because 300 Australians left the country to fight in Iraq and Syria, including 70 who are fighting for ISIS.

“ISIS has had a focus on Australia for sometime,” he added. “Just a couple of months ago the Australians did a countrywide raid arresting a number of people after a senior ISIS leader called for individuals in Australia to behead Australians in public for ISIS, so there is this focus on Australia.”

No doubt the federal government will use the Sydney hostage situation, and ISIS in general, to justify a greater expansion of the police state which creeps into every aspect of Americans’ lives.

This is a centuries-old government strategy called “problem – reaction – solution” in which the government manufactures a crisis or takes advantage of an existing one to scare the public into demanding a “solution” which was the government’s objective all along, before the crisis even started.

“Most of us unwittingly fall victim to it all too often and sadly if we don’t stop, we will continue to lose our free will and liberties,” journalist General Maddox wrote. “It has been widely used by our governments and corporations around the world.”

“You could say that in terms of controlling the masses, and society in general, its deployment has been an effective tool in keeping humanity in check.”

And it’s also worth wondering what else Morrell knows which he isn’t revealing.

A Century Ago: Rockefellers Funded Eugenics Initiative to Sterilize 15 Million Americans

A Century Ago: Rockefellers Funded Eugenics Initiative to Sterilize 15 Million Americans

Some people are still under the impression that the Rockefeller Foundation is all about philanthropy: helping people and saving lives. Those people are Bill Gates and Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.

In reality, the Rockefellers have been one of the largest financial backers and drivers of the eugenics and the depopulation agenda for over a century now.

Check out these 1915 newspaper clippings we came across in research.

The first is from The Salem Daily Capital Journal printed Thursday, November 4th, 1915.

rockefellereugenicsplayx

 

The article, “Rockefeller, Jr., On Eugenic Problems,” is about a play produced by the Rockefellers called “The Unborn.” Jr. says:

“For the first time in dramatic history the perplexing problem of the limitation of undesirable offspring which has been engaging the attention of thoughtful eugenists and sociologists the world over is dealt with on the stage in a play that we are to produce. The right of the child to be well-born and the right of the wife to decide about it are problems the solution of which society can no longer ignore.”

This is what propaganda looked like before we had television — the Rockefellers funding a stage play pushing a eugenics depopulation agenda all the way back in 1915!

But wait… At first glance, it sounds like modern-day birth control and a woman’s right to choose, doesn’t it? (Two things which the Rockefellers have also been massive financial backers and drivers of for decades now.) Well, it’s not.

The key words here are “undesirable,” which in this old context it means something a lot different, and “well-born” — the right of the child to be “well-born.”

Just a few months earlier, the Rockefellers also appear in multiple articles about a new eugenics enterprise printed in papers across the country like this one in The Washington Herald on September 3rd, 1915.

rockefeller15mil
Headline: “15,000,000 Americans Defective, They Say
Subhead: Gigantic Eugenic Enterprise Organized for Sterilization of Unfit of Nation

This one discusses the joint eugenics venture between Mrs. E.H. Harriman (mother of future statesman and Skull & Bones secret society member Averill Harriman); John D. Rockefeller; Andrew Carnegie; and scientist Alexander Graham Bell, the guy who invented the telephone and who was apparently a huge eugenicist.

(On a side note, information regarding whether or not Bell developed the telephone while working on a way to be able to contact Satan directly was not included in this particular article.)

Apparently John D. and Co. were giving “liberal financial assistance” (read: millions) to fund a “gigantic eugenic enterprise…to ascertain what is the matter with the human race” that had been going on for four years prior and which ended in the announcement in this article of a campaign being launched “for the sterilization of 15,000,000 Americans.”

Studies in eugenics had been “quietly conducted” for nearly half a decade not just at Cold Springs Harbor, but “by field workers all over the world.”

The article ends with,

“The organization, after his four years’ work in this country and Europe reached the conclusion that sterilization of defectives was the greatest work for them. Statistics gathered reveal the amazing fact that 10 per cent of the present population of the United States are defectives, who must be blotted out as reproducers of human life.”

“Undesirables” or “defectives” could mean anything from people who had committed crimes to people who drank alcohol often, or people who were considered feeble-minded, physically handicapped or sick people and even the impoverished or people simply considered to be of poor breeding.

Children born to parents such as these were not considered to be “well-born.”

Under the guise of “fixing” the human race, these elite got together and funded a massive campaign to permanently sterilize 10 percent of America.

The same elite robber barons who had consolidated and monopolized the oil, rail, steel and banking industries took it upon themselves to also push for laws to restrict which people might be allowed to have babies, all while lauding themselves and their blue blood friends as the types that should reproduce as much as possible.

During the era leading up to World War II, eugenics laws were passed in 27 states which allowed for the forcible sterilization of tens of thousands of Americans.

Now you know what kind of powerful elite (then-)millionaires were behind those laws.

As we’ve previously reported, “Following World War II, Eugenics was re-branded to cast of its associations with the Nazis, and emerged, as it were, in the form of such social policy topics as ‘population control,’ ‘family planning,’ abortion/Planned Parenthood, health care, various types of genetics, even laced in between such agendas as global warming/climate change – which leads to arguments about reducing the burden of over-population upon the earth.”

Later projects funded by the Rockefeller Foundation included everything from Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood, to an anti-fertility vaccine among others. These people spent millions back then and continued to do so throughout the decades.

Do you really believe the motives behind the money have changed?

The ultimate goal — total control over society and depopulation — has never changed, regardless of what they call it now or how they try to paint it in a positive light today.

Even at a time when eugenics was en vogue, not everyone was on board with targeting the poorest and most vulnerable in society in a world run by Rockefeller wealth. In the October 8th, 1915 edition of The Day Book, R.F. Paine made just such a case:

WHERE TO BEGIN.

The millions of Mrs. Harriman, relict of the great railroad “promoter,” assisted by other millions of Rockefeller and Carnegie, are to be devoted to sterilization of several hundred thousands of American “defectives” annually, as a matter of eugenics.

It is true that we don’t yet know all that the millions of our plutocracy can do to the common folks. We see that our moneyed plutocrats can own the governments of whole states, override constitutions, maintain private armies to shoot down men, women and children and railroad innocent men to life imprisonment for murder, or lesser crimes. And if we submit to such things, we ought not to be surprised if they undertake to sterilize all those who are obnoxious to them.

Of course, the proposition demands much on who are the declared “defective.”

The old Spartans, with war always in view, used to destroy, at birth, boys born with decided physical weakness. Some of our present day eugenists go farther and damn children before their birth because of parents criminally inclined. Then we have eugenic “defectives” in the insane and incurably diseased…

But isn’t there another sort of “defective,” who is quite as dangerous as any but whom discussion generally overlooks, especially discussion by senile, long-hailed pathologists, and long-eared college professors involved in the Harriman-Rockefeller scheme to sterilize?

A boy is born to millions. He either doesn’t work, isn’t useful, doesn’t contribute to human happiness, is altogether a parasite, or else he works to add to his millions, with the brutal, insane greed for more and more that caused the accumulation of the inherited millions. Why isn’t isn’t such the most dangerous “defective” of all? Why isn’t the prevention of more such progeny the first duty of eugenics? Such “defectives” directly attack the rights, liberties, happiness, lives of millions.

Talk about inheriting criminal tendencies! If there a ranker case of such than the inheritance of Standard Oil criminality as evidenced in the slaughter of mothers and their babies at Ludlow?

Sterilization of hundreds of thousands of the masses, by the Harrimans and Rockefellers? Let’s first try out the “defectives” of the sons of Harriman and Rockefeller!

More Are Now Saying That Guns Do More to Protect, Than Put People at Risk

Growing Public Support for Gun Rights in America

Image credit: Aldaron, a.k.a. Aldaron (Flickr)

In a recent poll by Pew Research Center,

There is more support for gun rights than gun control. Currently, 52% say it is more important to protect the right of Americans to own guns, while 46% say it is more important to control gun ownership.

Support for gun rights has edged up from earlier this year, and marks a substantial shift in attitudes since shortly after the Newtown school shootings, which occurred two years ago this Sunday.

Growing Public Support for Gun Rights in AmericaResearchers note, “Support for gun rights has edged up from earlier this year, and marks a substantial shift in attitudes since shortly after the Newtown (Sandy Hook) school shootings, which occurred two years ago this Sunday.”

In January 2013, support for gun rights stood at 45 percent while 51 percent supported more gun control.

The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Dec. 3-7 among 1,507 adults, also finds a shift in attitudes about whether gun ownership in this country does more to protect people or put people’s safety at risk. Nearly six-in-ten Americans (57%) say gun ownership does more to protect people from becoming victims of crime, while 38% say it does more to endanger personal safety. In the days after Newtown, 48% said guns do more to protect people and 37% said they placed people at risk.

Among its other findings:

  • 57 percent of Americans say gun ownership does more to protect people from becoming victims of crime, while 38 percent say it does more to endanger personal safety.
  • 54 percent of blacks say gun ownership does more to protect people than endanger personal safety, nearly double the percentage saying this in December 2012 (29 percent).
  • 62 of whites view guns as doing more to protect people, up from 54 percent in December 2012.
  • 80 percent of Republicans say guns do more to protect people.
  • 60 percent of Democrats say guns do more to put people at risk.

Congress Passes Bill Which Grants Unlimited Access to Communications of Every American

Congress Passes Bill Which Grants Unlimited Access to Communications of Every American

Congress Passes Bill Which Grants Unlimited Access to Communications of Every American

By Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars

Amash labels legislation “most egregious I’ve encountered”

Congressman Justin Amash: Congress Passes Bill Which Grants Unlimited Access to Communications

According to Congressman Justin Amash, Congress just passed a bill which grants the government and law enforcement “unlimited access to the communications of every American”. (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-113hr4681eh/pdf/BILLS-113hr4681eh.pdf)

When the Michigan lawmaker discovered that the Intelligence Authorization Act for FY 2015 had been amended with a provision that authorizes “the acquisition, retention, and dissemination” of all communications data from U.S. citizens, he desperately attempted to organize a roll call vote on the bill.

However, the legislation was passed yesterday 325-100 via a voice vote, a green light for what Amash describes as “one of the most egregious sections of law I’ve encountered during my time as a representative”.

The bill allows the private communications of Americans to be scooped up without a court order and then transferred to law enforcement for criminal investigations.

The legislation effectively codifies and legalizes mass warrantless NSA surveillance on the American people, with barely a whimper of debate.

Read the full text of Congressman Amash’s letter below, which was sent out before the bill was passed.

*********************

Dear Colleague:

The intelligence reauthorization bill, which the House will vote on today, contains a troubling new provision that for the first time statutorily authorizes spying on U.S. citizens without legal process.

Last night, the Senate passed an amended version of the intelligence reauthorization bill with a new Sec. 309—one the House never has considered. Sec. 309 authorizes “the acquisition, retention, and dissemination” of nonpublic communications, including those to and from U.S. persons. The section contemplates that those private communications of Americans, obtained without a court order, may be transferred to domestic law enforcement for criminal investigations.

To be clear, Sec. 309 provides the first statutory authority for the acquisition, retention, and dissemination of U.S. persons’ private communications obtained without legal process such as a court order or a subpoena. The administration currently may conduct such surveillance under a claim of executive authority, such as E.O. 12333. However, Congress never has approved of using executive authority in that way to capture and use Americans’ private telephone records, electronic communications, or cloud data.

Supporters of Sec. 309 claim that the provision actually reins in the executive branch’s power to retain Americans’ private communications. It is true that Sec. 309 includes exceedingly weak limits on the executive’s retention of Americans’ communications. With many exceptions, the provision requires the executive to dispose of Americans’ communications within five years of acquiring them—although, as HPSCI admits, the executive branch already follows procedures along these lines.

In exchange for the data retention requirements that the executive already follows, Sec. 309 provides a novel statutory basis for the executive branch’s capture and use of Americans’ private communications. The Senate inserted the provision into the intelligence reauthorization bill late last night. That is no way for Congress to address the sensitive, private information of our constituents—especially when we are asked to expand our government’s surveillance powers.

I urge you to join me in voting “no” on H.R. 4681, the intelligence reauthorization bill, when it comes before the House today.

New York Confiscating Guns From Owners Deemed Mentally Unstable

New York Confiscating Guns From Owners Deemed Mentally Unstable

New York Confiscating Guns From Owners Deemed Mentally Unstable

By By James T. Mulder | Liberty Crier

New York Confiscating Guns From Owners Deemed Mentally UnstableSyracuse, N.Y. — New York state has identified 278 licensed gun owners who could lose their weapons because they are considered mentally unstable.

At least eight of them are Central New Yorkers, half of whom have had their guns and permits taken away by authorities.

Psychiatrists and other health professionals reported these individuals to the state because they appeared to be at risk of harming themselves or others. Under a provision of the New York SAFE Act gun control law, mental health providers have reported 38,718 at-risk patients, 737 of them from Central New York. Those reports are cross checked against a list of pistol permit holders. Less than 1 percent of the mental health reports statewide involved people with pistol permits.

The SAFE Act took effect March 16, 2013. Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislators quickly pushed through the law with no public input after the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

The state Division of Criminal Justice Services provided county-by-county statistics from the database in response to a Freedom of Information Law request from syracuse.com.

Here’s how many mentally unstable residents of local counties had pistol permits as of Oct. 3, according to the database: Onondaga, 3; Cayuga, 2; Cortland 1, Madison, 2; and Osweg0. Some county officials say the numbers are higher than that.

Americans Already Live In A One World Order

Americans Already Live In A One World Order

“Today America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful. When presented with this scenario, [the Watts Riots] individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their wellbeing granted to them by the World Government.” —Henry Kissinger, member CFR, etc., May 21, 1992 at a Bilderberg Meeting in Evian, France

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and their great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” —David Rockefeller 1915 Internationalist billionaire, CFR kingpin, founder of the Trilateral Commission, World Order Godfather

As you can see from the above quotes, powerful men have been trying to merge America from a sovereign nation into a world of nations, dictatorships and democracies alike, for the last hundred years, in the interest of commerce and the flow of money, especially the flow of money. The establishment of the United Nations just after World War II was one element of the merger.

As you go about your daily life, these powerful men and their descendants and acolytes are directly impacting how you make and spend your money, how much your money is worth, what you buy, where you live, what you drink, what you eat, what you drive, the cost of energy and how you heat and light your home. It all has to do with the international movement of money, the rates of exchange between currencies, tariffs, the balance of trade, energy, the environment and wars. You are being manipulated, herded, cajoled and lied to, on a daily basis in the name of money. (man-caused global warming, etc.) But all this manipulation of your lives and lying, takes place in secret and it is so quiet and subtle, you never hear about it. Because, as MIT Professor Gruber said with regard to the passing of Obama Care, “it is easier to govern when the people are stupid, uninformed and kept in the dark.”

Let’s take one example of international currency manipulation in what has been dubbed the “Plaza Accord.”

Between the years 1980 and 1985, inflation in America was rampant and the dollar had increased dramatically in its value related to other currencies, including the currencies of Japan, Germany, France and Great Britain, America’s major trading partners. In fact, the dollar appreciated over 50% against these four other currencies. Some of you may remember that was a time of very high interest rates and inflation in America.

Money and investors aren’t discriminatory. They follow the path to the greatest wealth. In other words, the natural law says that money flocks to where the money is flowing. That law is never broken and if it is, someone loses big time.

Many industries in America were being hammered by the high value of the dollar, so the finance ministers of Japan, Germany, France and Britain met with then U. S. Secretary of the Treasury Howard Baker at the Plaza Hotel in New York City in late September of 1985 and worked on an agreement to bring down the value of the dollar. The “plan” was that the dollar would be brought down gently over a period of time. However, the dollar against the Japanese Yen virtually went into free fall from 1985 to 1987 and another intervention into the value of the dollar (The Louvre Accord) took place to stop the decline. (See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plaza_Accord)

Yes, the devaluation of the dollar did make American companies more competitive in world markets but what did the devaluation do for the American consumer? Did you, an American citizen, have a say in any of these huge financial decisions? Did Americans get to vote on them? Of course not! World finance is not open to a representative form of government, much less fall under the umbrella of what the international elite consider to be an “out-of-date”, or just plain irrelevant, U. S. Constitution.

The point here is that the finance ministers, central bankers, industrialist and multi-billionaires are meeting all the time to manipulate currencies, economies and international trade. Billionaire George Soros has made billions in trading in international currencies. His trading and manipulation have made him rich and brought down countries to the point of bankruptcy.

The American citizen, that touts his freedom and individual rights under a mirage of a constitution, is but a pawn to these decisions by the world elite and can only adjust and adapt, as cattle on a cattle drive, or a puppet on a string.

World manipulated finance recognizes no international boundaries, sovereignty, or national law. World finance is a power unto itself, run by powerful, very wealthy men with huge political influence. What they do can destroy a country, a company, or a person, or make a country, company, or person rich beyond their wildest dreams. But in almost all cases of money manipulation, the manipulators always increase their wealth.

These money manipulators on the world stage make huge mistakes that cost the average citizen intense pain. They very seldom get it right because they are trying to “tweak” a non-linear dynamic system where even minor changes can result in huge fluctuations in the markets and currency exchange rates.

Here is another example of how these money manipulators got it wrong:

September 16, 1992 was known as Black Wednesday in England. Great Britain was the last European nation to enter the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM). They joined the ERM in an effort to assist in the unification of the European economies about the time the Euro currency was born. Unfortunately, it was a bad decision, not only for the Bank of England, but for the average citizen of Great Britain.

The Government had pegged the British Pound at 2.7 German Marks as a requirement to join the ERM. But like so many things that governments and powerful men do, the exchange rate was unsustainable. England was going through an extended period of inflation and high interest rates, significantly higher than the German inflation rate. The German Mark was the core currency of the ERM but Germany was under intense financial pressure from the unification with East Germany. This disparate condition became the focus of speculators who then stepped in and started manipulating the two currencies, buying and selling long or short, wherever the most money could be made.

Britain then raised its interest rate to attract more investors to the Pound but the speculators started shorting the Pound (George Soros among them). The British Government was losing billions trying to prop up its currency and finally had to withdraw from the ERM. George Soros walked away with a cool billion or so, in effect, breaking the Bank of England.

The truth is, we live in an international financial one-world based on debt. Debt is an instrument of control! If you don’t think so, just try not complying with the terms of your mortgage ….. or worse, not paying your taxes. Debtors are almost always compliant to their lenders.

The national debt and deficit are a direct obligation of the citizens of the nation, obligated by the force of law. The lifetime earnings of each individual are the collateral for the nation’s debt. In America, your social security number is your individual loan number for that debt.

Debt is very good for the world’s central bankers because they make huge sums of money off of a nation’s debt and contrary to the popular mindset, central bankers run the world, not politicians.

Do you think that these international money manipulators care one whit about the average citizen? Do you think that the elite, moneyed members of the central banks, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the WTO and the G7 and G20 countries care about what you do in your life, how you live, how much money you have to spend, where you work, what you drive, or what you eat, or your individual liberties? Hell no! But what they do and the decisions they make have a direct impact on every aspect of your life. These international “manipulators” are picking winners and losers and playing favorites at your expense. You aren’t a player at their poker table, but you are most always one of the losers.

The unfortunate truth is ladies and gentlemen, Americans already live in the one world order, with virtually no influence or impact on economic or financial outcomes.

What can Americans do about any of this? One thing Americans can do is to retake the power from their government as the “Consent of the Governed” and the second thing they can do is to stamp out the embedded corruption wherever it exists in government, in corporations, in unions and in special interest groups. It is a tall order, but it is probably the only solution to preserve freedom and American sovereignty ….. short of revolution.

Nevertheless, it may be a hopeless task in the end because the move to strike a deal for world government happened 101 years ago when then President Woodrow Wilson signed the 16th Amendment into law, with the direct assistance of the Democrats who controlled Congress at the time ….. ala Obama Care in 2010. That one-world-order deal was further cemented in 1933 when FDR took office as the 2nd dictator of the United States of America and removed gold as the substance behind the American dollar so that it would float among the world’s currencies.

Not knowing what the world government deal meant, or even knowing that a deal had taken place, the American people stood by and watched, oblivious to the international actions that would further erode their freedom. At the time, they were totally distracted and looking for a savior to relieve them from the ravages of the Great Depression, that some say with credibility, was created by our own Federal Reserve. The people found their savior in FDR who did more to transform America into a socialist country than all the presidents before him. Obama may have just finished the job with his current executive order to grant amnesty to 5 million illegal aliens. Sadly, the people are still distracted from reality and oblivious to what the powerful and wealthy elite has wrought.

Monsanto Pulling Illegal Vote Counters Into Oregon GMO Recount?

Monsanto Caught ‘Playing Dirty’

At least three counties have thrown out election observers which Monsanto and their cronies flew into Oregon to influence the current recount of votes for Measure 92 to label genetically modified foods.

According to Oregon law, only registered voters can serve as recount observers. In at least 3 counties, Monsanto’s out of state political operatives have been forced to leave the recount room. Who knows what other shady tactics they have employed.

The law requires all election observers to be from within the state. As of this writing, there are only 812 votes between the ‘No’ and ‘Yes’ sides of the labeling debate in Oregon. More than 3000 outstanding ballots had to be chased down and clarified for the recount. More than 1.5 million ballots had to be counted by hand starting last Tuesday, and workers have until December 12 to finish the recount, though some counties are expected to finish earlier.

In 22 statewide recounts around the U.S. since 2000, the average shift was only 0.03 percentage point, according to FairVote, a Maryland-based advocacy group. But this election seems to be following a different trend. The initial difference of 812 votes out of 1.5 million is already suspect, and many of the contested votes have fallen on the ‘yes to label’ side. Long-time KGW political analyst Len Bergstein now says that he believes the YES side will be victorious!

Oregon’s GMO labeling Measure 92 was originally reported defeated thanks to Monsanto’s onslaught of more than $22 million dollars in negative ads. But the measure is still alive.

If you want to ensure that Monsanto doesn’t win again with their funny money and manipulative political tactics, you can contribute by chipping in to the Yes on 92 Emergency Recount Response Fund to help us make sure every vote is recounted fairly and accurately.

Even if the YES to label wins, you can bet Monsanto and the GMA will sue Oregon just as they have in Vermont and Hawaii, but at least they will have to launch multiple lawsuits at once. If we keep adding the pressure, at some point they have to surrender. Keep it up!

Utah to Seize Own Land From Government, Challenge Federal Dominance of Western states

Utah to Seize Own Land From Government, Challenge Federal Dominance of Western states

Utah to Seize Own Land From Government, Challenge Federal Dominance of Western states

By Valerie Richardson | The Washington Times

‘Transfer of Public Lands Act’ demands Washington relinquish 31.2 million acres by Dec. 31

In three weeks, Utah intends to seize control of 31.2 million acres of its own land now under the control of the federal government. At least, that’s the plan.

In an unprecedented challenge to federal dominance of Western state lands, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert in 2012 signed the “Transfer of Public Lands Act,” which demands that Washington relinquish its hold on the land, which represents more than half of the state’s 54.3 million acres, by Dec. 31.

Utah to Seize Own Land From Government, Challenge Federal Dominance

So far, however, the federal government hasn’t given any indication that it plans to cooperate. Still, state Rep. Ken Ivory, who sponsored the legislation, isn’t deterred.

“That’s what you do any time you’re negotiating with a partner. You set a date,” said Mr. Ivory. “Unfortunately, our federal partner has decided they don’t want to negotiate in good faith. So we’ll move forward with the four-step plan that the governor laid out.”

In other words, there won’t be any escorting of federal officials by state troopers to the eastern border. Instead, he said, state officials will proceed with a program of education, negotiation, legislation and litigation.

From BigThink:
The United States government has direct ownership of almost 650 million acres of land (2.63 million square kilometers) – nearly 30% of its total territory. These federal lands are used as military bases or testing grounds, nature parks and reserves and indian reservations, or are leased to the private sector for commercial exploitation (e.g. forestry, mining, agriculture). They are managed by different administrations, such as the Bureau of Land Management, the US Forest Service, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the US Department of Defense, the US Army Corps of Engineers, the US Bureau of Reclamation or the Tennessee Valley Authority.

Feds Balk at Releasing Docs Showing IRS Sharing Tax Returns with White House

By Paul Bedard | Washington Examiner

Less than a week after ’fessing up that it found some 2,500 documents potentially showing that the IRS shared taxpayer returns with the White House, the Obama administration has reversed course and won’t release the trove to a group suing for access.

IRS Sharing Tax Returns with White House

In an abrupt decision, the Treasury inspector general’s office said that the documents are covered by privacy and disclosure laws and can’t be provided to Cause of Action, despite a promise last week to hand over some 2,500.

The decision coincides with publication by the Washington Examiner this week of “Watchdogs, lapdogs and attack dogs,” a four-part series examining the successes and failures of the inspectors-general system, including multiple instances in which IGs provided cover for agency managers seeking to avoid more rigorous evaluations.

Court Issues Temporary Block of Fees to Common Core-Aligned Interstate Consortium

Court Issues Temporary Block of Fees to Common Core-Aligned Interstate Consortium

Missouri Court Issues Temporary Block of Membership Fees to Common Core-Aligned Interstate Test Consortium

By | Breitbart

The Circuit Court for Cole County, Missouri has temporarily blocked the state from paying membership fees to the federally funded Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC), an interstate consortium that is developing tests aligned with the Common Core standards.

As reported by Anne Gassel and Gretchen Logue, co-editors of Missouri Education Watchdog and plaintiffs in the lawsuit along with Fred N. Sauer against Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D), the court’s order last week states, “Plaintiffs have made a preliminary showing of likelihood of success on the merits on their claim that the Consortium is an unconstitutional interstate compact to which Congress has never consented, in violation of the Compact Clause of the U.S. Constitution.”

“If plaintiffs prevail on this claim, Missouri’s membership in the Consortium is unconstitutional,” the court found.

“The order also finds that Plaintiffs made a showing that they would be irreparably harmed if the State were to disburse membership fees to an unconstitutional entity,” writes Gassel in a post on the Watchdog website. “The order temporarily blocks the State from paying over $1 million in membership fees to the consortium pursuant to a recent invoice.”

As Breitbart News reported in September, anti-Common Core activists Gassel and Logue filed the lawsuit with former Republican gubernatorial candidate Sauer, challenging the state’s payment of taxpayer funds to SBAC. The suit alleges that SBAC is “an unconstitutional interstate compact that was not approved by Congress, in violation of the Compact Clause of the U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 3, Clause 10.”

“According to public records, the [Missouri] Department of Elementary and Secondary Education plans to send millions of

dollars of taxpayer funds to the Smarter Balanced consortium in 2015, which will be used to support the implementation of Common Core in numerous other states,” Gassel wrote. “These payments are illegal under the federal constitution, federal statutes, and Missouri state law.”

“The lawsuit,” she said, also contends that the consortium threatens the freedom and authority of non-member states by attempting to create a de facto education ‘cartel’ aligned with Common Core.”

“We hope that this is a template attorneys and institutes dealing with constitutional issues would use in filing lawsuits regarding Common Core against their officials who signed on to consortia in violation of the Interstate Compact Clause,” Logue told Breitbart Texas. “The MOUs [memoranda of understanding] binding states to consortia were signed without voter/legislative approval and set up an oligarchic structure of private NGOs [non-governmental organizations] directing/developing public education with no public/legislative accountability measures.”

“We hope that other states will join in their pushback against the political circumvention of the process in which Common Core was adopted and implemented,” Logue added. “Common Core essentially creates a monopoly via two consortia to provide assessments for public schools creating unknown costs for taxpayers and no real competition among vendors.”

Ben Swann Exclusive: Called “Domestic Terrorists” by The Feds, Oath Keepers Help Stop Ferguson from Burning

By Joshua Cook | Oathkeepers

You might have seen them on the news. The people protecting Ferguson businesses from the arsonists and looters ransacking Ferguson, Mo. But here is the real story about the organization protecting those businesses. They’re called Oath Keepers, and they have ex-police and ex-military keeping guard of four Ferguson businesses since late Monday night, Nov. 24, at the permission of the business owners.

Oath Keepers Help Stop Ferguson from Burning
They’ve been shown in the media before, but the report was incorrect, according to Stewart Rhodes, national founder of president of the Oath Keepers, who stressed that the group is not just business owners.

“We are not.  We are military and police veterans who are volunteer security for local businesses.  We have Iraq and Afghanistan combat vets in the rooftops, along with retired cops, guarding the shops,” he said.

The four businesses include Natalie’s Cakes and More, a bakery that was featured on Fox News, a beauty supply store, a dentist’s office and a Chinese restaurant.

In addition to their work keeping businesses safe, and the people living there, the group has also seen some totally bizarre interactions by the federal government and the state highway patrol.

According to Rhodes, “We had an alarming incident that happened last night with our team spotting what looked like a fed three-man sniper team moving into a nearby house on higher ground, and then pointing their rifles at our team of American combat veterans, while our team was guarding the buildings against looters.”

Rhodes said the team even observed the state highway patrol snipers deploy onto the roof of a nearby fire hall and point rifles at them.

“Our team leader called Unified Command to find out what was going on and then local police responded,” he explained.

He said that the local police were unaware of what the federal government were doing and that there was no coordination. “The local police are on our side and expressed gratitude for us being there, but the Feds are trying to run us out.”
