Demand that the House Judiciary Committee cancel the hearing on False Claims Act “reform” scheduled for July 30, 2014. If the Committee is determined to hold the hearing, then a member of the National Whistleblower Center should be invited to testify as a witness.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (“Chamber”) has declared a war against whistleblowers! It has released a report, “Fixing the False Claims Act: the Case For Compliance-Focused Reforms,” setting forth proposals to strip millions of Americans from coverage under the Act, limit damages, increase the burden of proof on demonstrating fraud and establishing barriers to block employees from contacting the Justice Department. Taken together, the Chamber’s “reforms” would completely undermine the False Claims Act.
With its report in hand, the Chamber has commenced an extensive lobbying effort to amend the FCA. Its first step has apparently succeeded. The Chamber pressured the House Judiciary Committee to hold a hearing to present the Chamber’s proposals.
We need your help to stop the Chamber’s campaign! We need your voice to tell Congress not to destroy America’s most effective whistleblower and anti-fraud law!
The FCA has recovered billions of dollars from some of the largest corporations that have ripped off the taxpayers. Thousands of employees have used its pro-whistleblower procedures, many with success. Congress must hear our voices!
Linked below is a copy of the NWC’s report fully rebutting the Chamber’s dangerous attacks on the FCA. The report explains what is at stake, and how devious the Chamber’s proposals are. Please Take Action and pass the report onto your members of Congress – ask them to read it!

Tell Congress to reject the Chamber’s scare tactics, and instead expand the availability of qui tam remedies in order for America’s most effective law for uncovering fraud to be fully used to protect the American taxpayers.”

“Week by week, month by month and year by year the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) chisels away at what few herds of wild horses and burros remain on public lands while giving more and more concessions to welfare grazing interests. While screaming that they have no money nor room for former free equines the BLM announced last week that they are going to rip yet another 2,500 equines from their rightful homes and virtually “zero out” or totally destroy several long standing Wyoming herds.

After the massive backlash over the attempts to establish national, government owned herds of all kinds of livestock, which began in 2008, and raged on for several years, the USDA finally admitted defeat and backed off. At least publicly. Behind the scenes the efforts continued to find that one thing that would give them a foothold in establishing the National Animal Identification System. (NAIS ) Bingo! We got your handy dandy horses that can be used to get the ball rolling!
I have waited for someone to come out and say that “only the wild ones” will be tracked and tagged, and sure enough someone did. The problem with this is that the Bureau of Land Management, the agency charged with caring for, managing and protecting the wild herds, has been responsible for the slaughter of most of them. Very few of our wild horses, and even burros are left. Yet to hear the BLM tell it, there are untold hundreds of thousands of them on the herd management areas (HMA), and they are throwing litters of foals every year! That’s if you take the fabricated “scientific evidence” to heart and never ask why few of these animals can be located and when you can locate them they are on the back of a truck headed for slaughter plants in Mexico and Canada.
Clearly this effort to tag and track equines is a case of taking the path of least resistance. Especially when the BLM has been so successful in convincing ranchers that if they just get on the band wagon demanding the slaughter of the wild horses…why…….there would be just that much more land available for welfare grazing permits! With the cattlemen and the beef producers soundly behind the NAIS for horses, there should be little resistance from cattle producers, or at least not what it was when they were trying to steal their herds a few years back.
A word of caution: IF USDA is successful in forcing tracking on equines, it will be small potatoes to establish NAIS for ALL livestock. After all, equines are not even considered a food source in the US. But those cattle are as are other livestock herds.
This will be like watching someone shooting themselves in the foot, over, and over, and over…………

“A whistleblower complained that the bureau in Sacramento erased records within an Interior Department database and altered spreadsheets in an effort to hide mismanagement of collections under the agency’s control…”
Thank you to whistleblower Patrick Williams: “They more or less wanted to sweep it under the rug,” Williams said in an interview. “They were telling me to change things they didn’t want to see in the record and not to record information that tribal members might want to see as part of a repatriation request.”
A Department of Interior agency is being investigated for breaking the law. We need to wait to find out the results of the investigation, but it is of concern that databases and spreadsheets could be, and may have been, altered within the Department of Interior. Sally Jewell, what assurances do American taxpayers have that this isn’t a widespread practice? What steps can you take to make sure this doesn’t happen?
Agency accused of violating law on remains, relics
By Susan Montoya Bryan the Associated Press
ALBUQUERQUE, — An independent federal agency is calling for an investigation into allegations that U.S. officials ignored a law requiring them to catalog, preserve and ultimately return human remains and relics to American Indian tribes.
The U.S. Office of Special Counsel has directed the Interior Department to investigate whether U.S. Bureau of Reclamation officials have violated the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act while managing collections of remains and artifacts amassed during the construction and management of dams and waterways throughout California and parts of Nevada and Oregon.
A whistleblower complained that the bureau in Sacramento erased records within an Interior Department database and altered spreadsheets in an effort to hide mismanagement of collections under the agency’s control, resulting in hundreds of remains and artifacts being lost, boxed up for storage or loaned to museums and universities without the ability to track them.
The watchdog group Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility told The Associated Press on Wednesday that it hopes the inquiry will be expanded to cover more agencies and more parts of the West.
“These are relics that do not belong to the American government,” said Jeff Ruch, the group’s executive director. “The point of the law is they belong to the tribes from which they came. If these were your ancestors’ remains and they were boxed up someplace where you couldn’t get any information about them, you’d be pretty angry.”
A spokesman with the Bureau of Reclamation’s Mid-Pacific office could not immediately comment, saying he was unaware of the whistleblower’s case and the call for an investigation.
The federal government’s handling of Native American remains and artifacts has been criticized for years. Following a critical report by the Government Accountability Office in 2010, the Interior Department asked for more money and at least eight years to bolster compliance with the law.
But progress has been slow and frustrating, and communication with tribes is still lacking, said D. Bambi Kraus, a spokeswoman for the National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers. “It’s encouraging that this is being investigated,” she said.
A filing with the Office of Special Counsel shows Patrick Williams, who used to work as a museum specialist in archaeology in the bureau’s Mid-Pacific office, raised concerns with his supervisors that the agency was not complying with the law’s requirements once it stopped keeping detailed records of remains and relics. He also said the office was not filling out the proper paperwork when loaning out artifacts, essentially making the items untraceable.
The office routinely failed to notify tribes of long-stored and newly uncovered remains and funerary objects, Williams said. Some of the collections date back to the 1970s, when the federal government was building the New Melones dam and reservoir in California.
“They more or less wanted to sweep it under the rug,” Williams said in an interview. “They were telling me to change things they didn’t want to see in the record and not to record information that tribal members might want to see as part of a repatriation request.”
Williams said his supervisors told him creating detailed files of the remains and artifacts to comply with the law was “too complicated and required too much time and effort.” He said his concerns resulted in hostility and threats of termination.
“I’m not about to break the law for anybody, and they wanted me to go along with it,” Williams said. “I would rather step out, and that’s what I did.”
A combination of budget cuts and the low priority assigned by bureau managers resulted in responsibilities under the law falling by the wayside, Williams said.
While it’s unclear how widespread the compliance problem is, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility said it wouldn’t be surprised if similar things were happening elsewhere given that budget shortfalls and other priorities are challenges found throughout the agency.
“This is a statutory duty they feel they can ignore,” Ruch said. “The most important part is tribes aren’t being consulted, so there’s nothing to prevent this from going on for years and years.”
The Office of Special Counsel has given the Interior Department 60 days to investigate the allegations and report back.

According to the NY Times, all 470 senior executives at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) were rated as “fully successful” or better over the past 4 years and 80% of them received bonuses on top of their six-figure incomes in 2013. Yes, they are fully successful at Poor Management which caused the deaths of as many as 1000 veterans who did not receive proper medical care. The schedulers at the VA were “successfully” directed to keep secret waiting lists to delay medical care for sick and injured vets so that management could meet quotas which qualified them for bonuses.
The VA paid out $2.7 million in taxpayer funds for senior executive bonuses last year. This was True Success…for VA Senior Executives. Bravo.
Gina Farrisee, the Assistant Secretary for Human Resources at the VA argued that the bonus awards were necessary to compete in tough labor markets for skilled personnel.
I find her defense of executive bonuses hard to believe as it is an employers’ market with a plethora of talented people looking for work. The Weekly Standard reports that the average federal employee made $126,141 in pay and benefits in 2012, more than double the private sector average. More “success” for Federal Employees..at the expense of the Taxpayer.
Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) says that the VA doctors have an easy job compared to their private sector counterparts. He says that the VA doctors see about 1200 patients per year, compared to private sector doctors who attend to 2300 patents per year. In Phoenix, private sector doctors do almost twice as much work while earning about half of what the VA doctors make, which is in excess of $300,000. Salary “success” for Federal Doctors.
This list names the employees of the scandal-plagued Phoenix VA facility and reveals their salaries, in a first step toward transparency:
As a result of the failed wars in the Middle East, VA expenditures have doubled over the past 12 years. The VA spent $61 billion in 2001, compared to funding in 2012 that rose to a whopping $125 billion. “Success” for the taxpayers who are bankrolling the corrupt system.
Meanwhile, the Senate is proposing throwing money at the VA problem that could cost taxpayers an extra $50 billion per year, instead of rooting out the corruption and fixing the system.
Tom Coburn says money is not the solution as the VA is expected to have $5.9 billion in unspent funds at the end of the year. He recommends that Congress provide better oversight of the VA, transparency, accountability and the firing of bad employees.
Senator Coburn’s assessment is right on target, but doesn’t go far enough. Any VA employe who committed a serious crime, especially management, should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Some “success” should be punished, and renamed criminal fraud and waste.
The objective of Congress should be to focus on reducing VA costs by eliminating war.
The beneficiaries of war are the elites who control the Military Industrial Complex. The elites and bureaucracies like the VA are enjoying the “success” of the wars in the Middle East that are profitable only to them.
The wars have brought only death, destruction and complete misery to American soldiers and to the countries that were “liberated”. American vets are committing suicide at a rate of 22 per day! US military operations are bankrupting America. Hundreds of thousands of innocents in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya have been killed as a result of US intervention. This is the real cost of war.
Beyond the Waiting Lists, New Senate Report Reveals a Culture of Crime, Cover-Up and Coercion within the VA

TOM COBURN, US SENATOR FROM OKLAHOMA
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator and doctor Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK), today released his new oversight report “Friendly Fire: Death, Delay, and Dismay at the VA.” The report is based on a year-long investigation of VA hospitals around the nation that chronicled the inappropriate conduct and incompetence within the VA that led to well-documented deaths and delays. The report also exposes the inept congressional and agency oversight that allowed rampant misconduct to grow unchecked.
“This report shows the problems at the VA are worse than anyone imagined. The scope of the VA’s incompetence – and Congress’ indifferent oversight – is breathtaking and disturbing. This investigation found the problems at the VA are far deeper than just scheduling. Over the past decade, more than 1,000 veterans may have died as a result of the VA’s misconduct and the VA has paid out nearly $1 billion to veterans and their families for its medical malpractice. As is typical with any bureaucracy, the excuse for not being able to meet goals is a lack of resources. But this is not the case at the VA where spending has increased rapidly in recent years,” Dr. Coburn said.
“The Administration and Congress have failed to ensure our nation is living up to the promises we have made to our veterans,” Dr. Coburn added. “As a physician who has personally cared for hundreds of Oklahoma veterans, this is intolerable. As a senator, I’m determined to address the structural challenges of the Department of Veterans Affairs so we can end this national disgrace and improve quality and access to health care for our veterans. But make no mistake. Whatever bill Congress passes cannot ignore the findings of this report. While it is good that Congress feels a sense of urgency we are at this point because Congress has ignored or glossed over too many similar warnings in the past. Our sense of urgency should come from the scope of the problem, not our proximity to an election.”

Boyd Spratling, a past President of the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association who’s currently serving as a BLM National Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board member, manages to further undermine whatever shreds might be left of BLM’s credibility by taking a seemingly prominent part in the pro-horse slaughter propaganda film “Horses in Crisis,” made by a group called Protect the Harvest.
At the end of this film, credits show the Protect the Harvest logo “in conjunction” with United Horsemen (the pro-horse slaughter group whose President is Dave Duquette).
This propaganda film is shockingly inaccurate.
While rancher Mike Stremler talks about horses starving on the range, the film shows a photo of a foal that was taken INSIDE of a BLM facility AFTER a roundup.
And you might wonder if Protect the Harvest bothered to get releases signed by wild horse advocates before inserting their images into this film. Or, don’t they even know enough to Protect their Asses?
The film states that there are about 52,000 and possibly up to 100,000 wild horses on the range. I wish. But “Where’s the beef?” This film omits any mention of the huge numbers of cattle and sheep that are devouring forage on public lands in the West.
Protect the Harvest was founded in 2011 by oil magnate Forrest Lucas (Lucas Oil Products), who also serves as its President. Lucas also owns the Lucas Cattle Company of Cross Timbers, MO. Lucas Oil has investments in Professional Bull Riders, Inc., and sponsors professional bull riding stars.
Forrest Lucas (photo: celebritynetworth.com)
Protect the Harvest formed a “Super PAC” (a political action committee that can raise unlimited amounts of money) called “The Protect the Harvest Political Action Committee.”
This Super PAC’s treasurer, Brian Klippenstein, also serves as the Executive Director of Protect the Harvest. Klippenstein spent 26 years in Washington D.C., and worked for Senators Roy Blunt and Kit Bond.
While the word “harvest” in “Protect the Harvest” may sound like it’s about protecting crops, most likely it’s the definition that means “to gather, catch, hunt or kill for human use, sport or population control.”
It appears that “Horses in Crisis” promotes the slaughter of wild horses.
Last year, Protect The Harvest aired radio ads in Oklahoma promoting legislation to re-instate horse slaughter.
Pro-horse slaughter groups seem to consist of cattle ranchers who dislike “animal activists,” so it’s ironic that since cattle and sheep are animals, and since the ranchers are cattle and sheep activists, the ranchers are actually “animal activists” themselves.

June 10, 2014 – Friends of Animals (FoA) and The Cloud Foundation have filed a petition with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list North American wild horses on public lands as threatened or endangeredunder the Endangered Species Act (ESA) since the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act (WHBA), which was passed in 1971, has failed to protect our wild horses. Six states have already lost their wild horse populations—Missouri, Iowa, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
“Misclassification of wild horses as a non-native species is politically, not scientifically driven,” said Ginger Kathrens, executive director of The Cloud Foundation. “Wild horses are severely endangered but without recognition of current scientific evidence of their native status, they could become extinct.”

Who actually owns “public land”?
As an American citizen, environmental researcher and a life-long visitor to the state of Utah, I appreciate the opportunity to provide input on the proposed Bible Springs Complex environmental assessment. The federal government does not own land in the West. These are not “state lands” and not “federal lands” and not even “government lands”.” They are public lands. The American people own the public lands in the West and they are administered on our behalf by the national government under laws and regulations. This land belongs to all citizens of the United States, not the federal government. More
Ranchers Want our Public Lands for their Livestock, and want the Govt. to Stick It to Wild Horses and Taxpayers
June 7, 2014
Ranchers who graze their cows on federal lands are hellbent on taking wildlife and the public along with them for the ride.
June 6, 2014 | For months, ranchers in Utah’s Iron and Beaver counties have been pressuring the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to remove 697 out of 777 wild horses from public rangeland called the Bible Springs Complex.
What prompted them was a BLM request seeking voluntary reductions in livestock on public land suffering damage during the long drought. Faced with the loss of cheap forage for their cattle and sheep, the ranchers found a way to deflect the blame and economic burden.
Wild horses make an easy target; but that’s only as long as the BLM’s and the ranchers’ case for removal goes unexamined. The news media so far has done little probing into the issue—not in Utah, nor elsewhere ranchers lobby to get rid of wild horses.
Instead, the ranchers and BLM simply assert that the mustangs—and not privately owned livestock—are “overpopulating” and “overgrazing.” This claim is made without any scientific proof. Overgrazing as compared to what, exactly? Cattle and sheep? Neither the BLM nor the ranchers will provide data.
What is known is that the ranchers have nearly two million acres of grazing allotments in Iron and Beaver counties that overlap eight herd management areas (HMAs) where wild horses are protected. The four HMAs making up the Bible Springs Complex are just a fraction of the more than half-million acres where the wild horses (and private livestock) graze together under “multiple use” land policies. Another nearly million and a half acres of public lands provide further forage exclusively for cattle and sheep…(CONTINUED)

Scandal at the Phoenix Veterans Administration lifted the curtain of secrecy on the VA’s secret waiting lists. The VA lies while patients die.
This is by no means a new phenomenon. The nation’s single-payer system for veterans has long been greatly overloaded. Congress tried to fix it in 1996 by passing a law requiring that any veteran needing care had to be seen within 30 days.
The VA is supposed to have a wonderful electronic medical records system, and the EMR is supposed to be the magic formula for efficiency and quality. The VA gamed the electronic system to hide the waiting lists.
Readers of the British press will be struck by the similarities between fudging waiting lists at VA hospitalsand stacking patients in ambulances outside UK hospitals. Finding it impossible to comply with a National Health Service mandate that all patients admitted to an emergency room be seen within four hours, hospitals kept patients waiting in ambulances outside the ER!

“During this “public hearing” various corporate operatives of Seattle City Light were given over an hour to speak, sitting on the elevated dais with the council energy committee. This was completely in accord with the fact that Seattle City Council members absent from council meetings are often so because they are too busy literally meeting in back rooms with corporate operatives. “~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today, May 28, 2014, a goodly number of concerned Seattle area residents attended a long-awaited “public hearing” on “smart” utility meters before the Energy Committee of the Seattle City Council on May 28, 2014. This was after months of our attending “community meetings” hosted by Seattle City Light (SCL) during the latter half of 2013.
These “community meetings” were virtually unpublicized by the City of Seattle, Seattle City Light, and all Seattle media, both mainstream and so-called alternative, as was this public meeting today. This is despite the fact that both the City of Seattle and Seattle City Light both have access to websites, periodic bulletins, big mailing lists and monthly electric bill mailing inserts by which such important civic events might be publicized, as do all major Seattle media.
These Seattle City Light “community meetings” were military contractor-developed manipulations of group process — Delphi meetings — featuring one-way SCL propaganda and SCL employees pretending to listen to those of us providing documented evidence about our many legitimate unaddressed concerns about “smart” utility meters conveniently off the public record.
This was so that SCL and the Seattle City Council could say that they had gotten “community input” before unlawfully and fraudulently imposing these dangerous NSA-type surveillance devices on the people of Seattle in their homes, workplaces and meeting places, as they so obviously intend to do by 2016. This is indicated by the fact that the final vote on Seattle City Light’s planned “smart” utility meter roll-out being included the City of Seattle’s Strategic Plan will be on Monday, June 23, 2014 at 9:30 AM, with only two such unpublicized, truncated, fraudulent public hearings being held – the one today and the one that day.
Today’s so-called public hearing was deliberately held, as most Seattle City Council meetings are, on a weekday during business hours when most working people cannot attend. During this “public hearing” various corporate operatives of Seattle City Light were given over an hour to speak, sitting on the elevated dais with the council energy committee. This was completely in accord with the fact that Seattle City Council members absent from council meetings are often so because they are too busy literally meeting in back rooms with corporate operatives.
We the people, by contrast, were relegated to sitting below these august personages behind a barrier, and all of us given exactly two ten-minute segments total to speak to the very urgent, multifaceted issues around “smart” utility meters before and after this corporate propaganda presentation that did not seem very much concerned with any possible well-documented downside to these dangerous NSA-type surveillance devices.
Most of us present were thereby denied by recent Seattle City Council statutory regulation our first amendment rights peaceably to assemble and address our supposed elected electives with evidence placed on the public record. Moreover, some of us first there were told by the committee chairperson’s aide that if we put our names at the top of a second sign-in sheet to speak during public comment, that we would be the first to speak during the second ten-minute segment.
That time never came; at the beginning of the second ten-minute segment, the committee chairperson ordered those whose names were on the first sheet later arrived to keep speaking, thereby eliminating some who were actually there first. So, not only was this meeting conducted in an unconstitutional manner, but in one that was arbitrary, rude and extremely unfair as well.
Today’s manifestation of de facto corporate dictatorship at Seattle City Hall might possibly be explained by the following facts:
o The City of Seattle is a private for-profit subsidiary of the private, for-profit State of Washington and US Government corporations. Their corporate Dunn & Bradstreet corporate code numbers are, respectively 009483561-City of Seattle, 079248936-Washington State and 052714196-US Government. This can be verified by cross-reference on the Dunn & Bradstreet.com and Manta.com business websites;
o These private, for-profit corporations masquerading as governments are controlled by the private, for-profit Federal Reserve central banking system that is in turn controlled by the global banking cartel of the 1%. This corporate takeover of our nation was engendered by the secret fraudulent bankruptcy imposed on our nation by this banking cartel in 1933. This can be abundantly documented by a web search for the terms “Federal Reserve” and “Secret US bankruptcy of 1933”;
o The private, for-profit City of Seattle corporation, likely has, through its participation in the Washington State government investment pool, significant listed investments in the three of the largest smart utility meter manufacturers in the world, General Electric, Exelon and Itron.
When the 2013 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) of the Washington State Investment Board is consulted as to the actual current amounts of these corporate government Wall Street investments in smart utility meter manufacturers, it is evident that all of the Washington State government CAFRs available online have recently been altered to reflect its largely irrelevant percentage of ownership in these corporations through its investments, rather than the very telling exact amounts of the people’s money that it has so invested.
Here is primary source evidence that the state’s online financial documents have been altered: a page from the online 2011 Washington State CAFR printed off in 2012 compared with one from the same 2011 CAFR printed off today. It is evident that the current online 2011 state CAFR has been altered to reflect only the percentage of Washington state government ownership of these corporations, rather than the exact amount of our money the state has placed in such corporate Wall Street investments.
This can be verified by review of the Washington State Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports 2006-2013 at www.wsib.gov;
o This is obviously so that the considerable amounts which the Washington State corporate government is investing in these and other objectionable predatory corporations – such as its listed investments in Goldman Sachs, Transamerica and Monsanto – will not be so readily available to the vigilant public. It is also very telling that this has occurred after one member of the vigilant public in 2012 filed relatively well-publicized criminal charges against the Washington State government and its enabling media corporations for ongoing financial fraud and treason – such financial fraud and treason as the Seattle municipal corporation wanting to maximize its possible energy sector investments at the expense of the welfare of the people of Seattle might reveal. These criminal charges against the Washington State corporate government and media can be found at NowIstheTime.us, as well as many other websites online.
o This, on top of the approximately $15 million in joint federal funding that the private, for-profit Seattle municipal corporation has obtained for its smart utility meter installation program from the private, for-profit US Departments of Energy and Homeland Security corporations, shows that the only things green about this private, for-profit municipal corporation’s planned unlawful imposition of these dangerous NSA-type surveillance devices on the people of Seattle are these: the color of money spuriously obtained under color of law, and the green mask being worn by a well-disguised, eco-politically correct campaign for even more planetary control by the globalist 1%.

DISCLAIMER: The following is not intended as legal advice; instead, it is sent for Education and Discussion Purposes Only….the Reader is responsible for all thoughts and actions gained from introspection.
By R.E. Sutherland, M.Ed.
Today is Memorial Day. Soldiers are remembering their fallen comrades; hence it is a good time to reflect on the future for our nation. Are we freer than we were a decade ago?
No. Our nation has slowly become entangled in a web of deceit that was inspired from inside the Beltway of Washington, D.C. Those of us who choose to learn, study, and discern the direction of the United States of America know that things are not good and not as we are told.
The following simple treatise of logic is for those who will think. It is not for the enslaved, stupid men who choose to be obedient, while losing every penny they earn, their land, and their freedom. Carry on as you wish. This information is for freedom lovers.
First, the legal history of our country does not match the story given to us during childhood.
We are not a free nation and never have been. The loans from the King of England to the wealthy aristocrats, who obeyed the King, who created the American colonies under contracts, and who gave allegiance to his commands in 1776…are on the record. We are still under the British rule, which is operated through The Crown, using the Worshipful Companies that are controlled via the Vatican per the Forever Treaty of 1213. The Magna Carta caused control of The Crown (i.e., international banking cartel) to pass from the King of England to the Vatican. Perform your own due diligence. It is on the records.
Second, on May 21, 2014, Russia and China sealed a contract that closed the door on the U.S. Dollar, which was the world’s reserve currency used as a Petrodollar.
They know all about the corruption in Washington, D.C., and they plan to end it. They will do so with or without the cooperation of the people in the USA. This also is not a secret.
Third, the communist agenda entered the USA long ago before President Lincoln rose to sit in the White House.
