ALERT!! HR 1105…..Another bill to force NAIS

1 Comment

           Every Thursday for the past 6 Months, Government Officials have raided
homes and businesses. Sometimes at Gunpoint, sometimes with a Warrant,
and sometimes with nothing more then the burly bodies that intimidate
those about to be oppressed.
                        Recite the Names below:
Stowers, Greg Niewendorp, Hixon, Miller, Griepentrog, Palmer
                           Now add your name.
Don’t shrug aside if you are a businesses that provides goods and
services to Livestock owners. If we don’t own Livestock – you have
nothing we need or want.
Today, Thursday of course, H.R. 1105 is awaiting assignment to Committee
in the Senate. It stands poised to allocate $289 million to APHIS for
the implementation of the National Animal Identification System. It also
outlines the time frame to implement in 2009 the tracking of 33 species.
An example: Poultry – “By July 1, 2009 – achieve 98% traceability in the
Commercial Poultry Industry…
That means if Murray McMurray sends you a chick – it had better be
traceable from their end and you better trace it when it gets to your
homestead. Think the cost of a Broiler is bad now? Think what it will be
when every chick that leaves that plant will be accounted for.
The House managed to pass this “Omnibus 2009” in 24 hours and we have no
reason to believe that the Senate will not as well.
What are your going to do? We as living human beings do not go to the
polls to elect officials to represent Multi-National Corporations or
Lobbyists paid by groups attempting to get their piece of the pie.
Contact the following Organizations – as many as you can this evening.
The first person to contact is AgSec@USDA.gov, then your personal
Legislator. A partial list of email contacts is below to get you
The message is simple :
We don’t want, nor will we comply with the National Animal
Identification System. We do not want H.R. 1105 out of Senate Committee.
We want it stopped and stopped Friday 27, 2009.
Tomorrow is Freedom Friday – make it count.

Why was “The U.S. has the safest food supply in the world” changed, to “We need Safety Laws”?



It is important to note that no animal identification program will prevent an introduction of animal disease, ensure safe food or prevent a recall.” – SCOTT CHARBO, Chief Information Officer at USDA March 6, 2004

In the final moves of a decades-long plan to monopolize food, Monsanto and the other big International Ag Corporations have introduced four supposed food-safety bills in the House and Senate. The USDA has a final comment period in the Federal Register on a regulation that requires all farms to carry a “Premises ID.” It magically becomes part of the deed, and removes the farmer’s Constitutional property rights. Go to Butner Blogspot to see the bills and comment to your congressman.

Independent farmers still control about 20% of the market, and Big-Ag wants that 20%—especially with organic foods and the local food movement threatening market share. The Death of Farming: a Recent History [Butner blogspot] gives a chronological picture of the corporate take over of the worlds farms and subversion of government safety measures. The attack on our food system is not just here in the USA but worldwide. It is on several fronts: from treaties, patenting of seeds and animals, to World Bank loans to nations. Those loans have strings attached that remove farm support systems and mandate industrial-export agriculture. The worst part of these attacks is a worldwide change in food inspection methods, taking control away from government agencies and giving it to the very corporations being inspected.

The new food inspection methods derive from a system called HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) which was developed by Pillsbury in the 1960’s. It was published as an International Guideline by. the Codex Alimentarius in 1993, and was incorporated into the World Trade Organization’s Agreement on Agriculture (WTO AoA) in 1995. It was adopted by the FDA and USDA in 1996. Our food safety has gone downhill ever since as we moved away from government inspection of food to government inspection of paperwork.


The FSIS (Food and Safety Inspection Service) of the USDA reports:


Pathogen Reduction/Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Systems rule, (July 25, 1996) “…Under the HACCP rule, industry is responsible for assessing potential food safety hazards and systematically preventing and controlling those hazards. FSIS is responsible for verifying that establishments’ HACCP systems are working…”


Since the inception of HACCP, FSIS food inspectors have complained, but their complaints have been ignored by the USDA. The chairman of the inspectors’ union was even placed on disciplinary investigation status, and the Office of Inspector General was contacted about filing criminal charges. A December 2004 Freedom of Information Act request resulted in over 1000 non-compliance reports—weighing some 16 pounds— being turned over and the charges were dropped.


There seems to be too much reliance on an honor system for the industry to police itself. While the USDA investigation is still on going at Hallmark/Westland, a couple of facts have emerged that point to a system that can be gamed by those who want to break the law. It (HACCP) shifted the responsibility for food safety over to the companies.” Union Chairman Stan Painter


A bill was introduced in the Senate called The Safe and Secure Food Act of 2005 FSIS calls it “Farm-To-Table – control of every step in the food chain from production to home preparation.” It failed so this time Monsanto is not taking any chances. “…“Both bills will appear simultaneously in both houses, having been planned before the fact. Since both bills are identical, there will be motions to suspend debate and none will be allowed. They will appear suddenly on the same day with the House voting first in the morning and the Senate in the afternoon….”


These bills will strangle family farms in red tape, and levy confiscatory fines, causing farmers to simply give up. Then the Big Ag corporations can grab their land, snapping it up at bargain prices. Once the regulations are in place it will be as difficult to raise a chicken or grow tomatoes as it is to manufacture Tylenol. Then corporations can set food prices in the same way they can set prescription drug prices.


If you have any questions about what is happening remember to read The Death of Farming: a Recent History then contact your Congressman. This is too important to ignore.

Don’t take our medical records or send them to Maine

1 Comment


Wednesday, February 25, 2009
For Immediate Release

Minnesotans Tell State Health Officials:Don’t take our medical records or send them to Maine!

Saint Paul/Feb. 25, 2009 – In less than 48 hours, more than 500 people sent letters to the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) asking for a public hearing on a plan to seize patient data without consent and transfer it to a data warehouse in the State of Maine where it will be accessible to MDH officials for tracking and analysis, according to Citizens’ Council on Health Care (CCHC).

A state health official contacted CCHC on Monday, confirming that 562 letters were received by the department during the last two days of the public comment period (Feb 9 – 10), each one of them asking for a public hearing.

“We call on the Minnesota Department of Health to hold a public hearing on this intrusive data collection rule. The Minnesota public is completely unaware that their medical records will soon be sent out of state and into the online hands of state government officials. The public has no idea that their data will be used to track them and to interfere in treatment decisions. They have no idea that they are about to lose all consent rights over their most private information,” charges Twila Brase, president of CCHC.

Detailed Patient Data
The “encounter data” initiative become law in the last days of the 2008 legislative session after it appeared in the negotiated health care reform bill that emerged from the Governor’s office. Patient data to be collected, tracked and analyzed include, but are not limited to:

  • demographics
  • diagnoses
  • treatments
  • doctor’s name and national provider identification numbers
  • insurance status
  • insurer
  • financial information
  • service, admission and discharge dates
  • injury codes
  • relationship codes
  • medications, including whether a refill and what date filled


– CCHC –

Citizens’ Council on Health Care supports freedom for patients and doctors, medical
innovation, and the right to a confidential patient-doctor relationship.


Hold a public hearing!

Congressional Hearing on NAIS




WHAT: CongressionaHearing on NAIS

WHEN: Wednesday, March 11

WHERE: Washington, DC


The U.S. House Agriculture Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy and Poultry will hold a hearing on NAIS on March 11.  Bills to put NAIS into law, HR875 and companion Senate S814, are being pushed through Congress, as well as an Appropriations Bill with funding for NAIS.  This hearing is critical to blocking mandatory NAIS.


ACTION: Please call and fax all members of the subcommittee (below).  

1.  When you call, ask to speak to the legislative aide for agriculture.  Form a positive relationship with the aide.  Become his or her source of knowledge for NAIS.  Be RESPECTFUL and POLITE.  Remember, who would the aide rather speak with, someone who is courteous or someone angry and resentful?


2.  Please send this to everyone you know, ESPECIALLY to people in the states with members on the subcommittee.  Members need to hear from their constituents–the people who vote them into office.


If you are in one of these states, please arrange a meeting with the district representative of the Congressman.  That makes a big difference.  We need to be real people to the legislators, so that when they think “farm” or “food” they think of us, not Monsanto, Cargill, Tyson, etc…


(NOTE: The colors are for easier reading.  They have no political meaning).

More So-Called “Pro-Gun” Laws Being Passed

Leave a comment

Just days after declaring its “sovereignty” from the federal government, the state of Tennessee has just ushered through three new allegedy “pro-gun” bills, HB959, HB960 and HB961. However, the net effect of these bills is that it simply further codifies having to get the state and federal government’s permission to exercise one’s existing right to keep and bear arms, which has been – in flagrant violation of the Second Amendment – nearly legislated out of existence over the course of three generations.

HB959 protects concealed carry permit holders from having their permit application information made public. It would impose a $2,500 fine for each offense. However, it certainly affords no protection at all from the prying eyes of government officials and bureaucrats, who will still have full access to the information. They just can’t publish it publicly, that’s all. So, this bill will do nothing for concealed carry permit holders except to bar their information from becoming a matter of public record. Never mind that any state or federal agency can still know everything about the permit holder and it is government intrusion into our privacy – not the public’s – that most people should fear.

Both HB960 and HB961 deal with “protecting” one’s right to carry a handgun in a state or national park in Tennessee. Both bills rescind the current ban against carrying a gun in state or national parks, which was imposed by the Bush administration. However, the lifting of this restriction only applies to those citizens who have dutifully bowed down to the government by obtaining a concealed carry handgun permit from the state of Tennessee. Never mind that the concealed carry permit is, itself, a regulation of the Second Amendment and, as such, is a violation of the Second Amendment, as all laws regulating firearms are. So, all these two laws do is add yet another layer of bureaucracy to the mountain of red tape that has already strangled our existing right to self-defense. But, so-called “pro-gun” organizations like the NRA don’t see that as a bad thing and applaud these laws as some sort of “progress” for gun rights. Never mind the fact that they never call for the repeal of all gun laws, which would be the only logical way of lifting the restrictions imposed by 75 years of violations of the Second Amendment. Gun owners, swayed to believe organizations like the NRA are on their side, also stupidly applaud the further regulation by government of their fundamental existing right to defend themselves against government, which is what the Second Amendment is all about.

The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws. – Tacitus (A.D. 55?-130?)

Washington, District of Criminals……your government at work

Leave a comment


As a country, as citizens of our respective states, nothing poses a greater threat to our existence than the assembly of congressmen/women residing in both houses, some for decades. 


For eight years we endured the arrogance, the outright fascist intents of the Bush Administration.  For six of those years we saw the wholesale selling off, selling out and undermining of the economy and infra-structure to corporate interests and illegal and unconstitutional trade agreements that forfeited our rights to regulate and legislate ourselves. 


We saw our rights vanish, our freedom compromised and realized that we had willingly allowed the “War of Terror”, causing the greatest series of human rights violations by any supposed civilized society in recent history.


We endured eight years of corruption and un-American activity at the hands of people calling themselves Christian conservatives that was so wide spread, so destructive and unimaginable, many of us are still reeling form the sheer scope of it all. Then came the 2008 election, a new president and Democrat controlled congress; and a country so battered and beaten down reached out for what seemed to be a ray of hope.


Since 2006 Democrats have had a simple majority in both houses.  That didn’t mean they could do whatever they wanted, contrary to popular belief.  Even when the Democrats seemed to be trying to do something positive, the Republicans threatened a filibuster; 98 times to be exact halting everything in its tracks. 


The 2008 election saw an increase in the numbers for the Democrats and with it more power to get things done.  And this bunch has been busy!  Immediately following the inauguration, a flurry of bills began appearing in both houses, and none of them were good news for America or her citizens. 


Instead of acting to protect America, the Democrats have flooded the House and Senate with bills designed to increase government regulation and control; to expand and increase the powers of two dysfunctional and mismanaged agencies, the FDA and USDA, to end the right to family and independent farming and ranching, to subject the citizens of the sovereign United States to trade agreements reducing the standards of production, harvest and processing of food, favoring industrialized corporately controlled factory farms. 


We have witnessed the greatest theft of wealth from the people in our history, as Democrats led the charge to save predatory lenders, parasitic and corrupt corporations who had mismanaged their businesses to such a degree they were in reality, not salvageable.  While middle and working class people lost their jobs, their homes and virtually everything they had, not one CEO, not one executive, forfeited either their freedom or any assets.  Not one was made to contribute a dime to the economic mess they had created.  In fact, they all profited handsomely.


Not one Democrat has stood up to demand the rights that were ripped away from us under the pretense of fighting terrorism, not one of the unconstitutional laws passed by those self-righteous fascists that called themselves Republicans, be repealed or restored.  In fact, the Democrats have picked up right where the Republicans left off and added a few more bricks in the wall.


From President Obama:

”Central to this plan will be a renewed commitment to honesty and transparency in government. Restoring our country’s economic health will only happen when ordinary citizens are given the opportunity to hold their representatives fully accountable for the decisions they make.”


Like this is ever going to happen.  We have a government that is not only detached from the people, but holds them in contempt.  On any given day, our own congress breaks more laws, commits more crimes and acts criminally against the very people it swore to protect and defend, than any common criminal out here in the streets.

Minnesota joins the sovereignty sideshow….blah, blah, blah

1 Comment


All the legislative saber rattling by successive states, declaring sovereignty, is less than meaningless.  With the exception of a little huffing and puffing by New Hampshire, these resolutions, laws or whatever they are suppose to be, fall by the wayside just as quickly as they appeared.  There is no follow up, no statement of position on any issue and absolutely no intention of actually asserting states rights over the federal government. 


On February 19, 2009, in what was an outright partisan piece of grandstanding, twenty Republicans in the Minnesota House co-sponsored yet another of these absurd declarations.  Although this declaration is worded to sound as if these sponsors were really concerned with federal creep and encroachment, this newly created declaration stopped short of specifying just exactly what the state of Minnesota would not participate in, subject itself to, or would reject on constitutional grounds. 


In fact, not one state issued any specifics or any statements of what these declarations would be used to avoid. 


Personally, I would think states making declarations of this kind would be not only newsworthy, but, I think they would also merit some little piece of acknowledgment, some little sign either from congress or the president that some kind of paradigm shift was occurring and they were aware of it.  Last nights speech from President Obama somehow omitted any reference to these declarations and not one congress person in the Washington District of Criminals has made one statement or reference to their own respective states declarations of sovereignty.  Not one.


In fact, not only is no one in the federal government even remotely concerned with these faux declarations, the D.C. political mafia is moving ahead with long planned expansions in government, more regulations and control, and more intrusion into the ordinary lives of people whose greatest mistake was electing these same individuals time and again and failing to boot out the majority of them in either house.


When I see declarations from any state that includes specifics on what the state will not comply with or what it will actually prohibit the federal government from mandating, I’ll be impressed.  As it is, I don’t see anything but meaningless gestures with no intent to back them up.  What’s the point?

Supreme Court Upholds Gun Grabbing


In its first major ruling since the so-called Heller “decision,” in which the Supreme Court said that we have an individual right to keep and bear arms “within reasonable limitations” (with what is “reasonable” left to the government’s interpretation), the court ruled seven to two in favor of continuing to block access to firearms by so-called “domestic abusers,” a ruling that, according to this article from an anti-gun source, was applauded by the anti-gun crowd.

The Supreme Court’s decision, on Tuesday, basically overturns a Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on the so-called Lautenberg amendment, which would have supposedly “greatly expanded” the ability of people convicted for or arrested for “domestic abuse” to own a gun. The Supreme Court is, basically, saying that the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on Lautenberg isn’t stringent enough.

The original Clinton administration law that criminalized gun ownership by anyone even arrested for a domestic abuse complaint removed the possibility of these people arming themselves against a fascistic government and, that, of course, is its real intent. By chipping away, little by little, at who may own a gun, the government disarms the population by legislative fiat, saving the trouble and expense of sending armed thugs out to collect guns.

This Supreme Court decision makes it quite clear that the court’s intent in the Heller decsision was to open the door to further regulation of gun ownership, not to “protect” gun owners from confiscation, as so many have stupidly believed the court intended. Government never relinquishes its power willingly and the two main powers it guards most jealously are the power of the purse and the power of the sword (powers that it didn’t have a monopoly on under the original constitution, which was the Articles of Confederation). With the ability to control the economy and our ability to defend ourselves, the government can do with us as it pleases.

The Second Amendment is quite clear. It does not specify who may be armed and who shall not be and any attempt by the government to tell us otherwise is a clear violation of the Second Amendment.

The Constitution is clear, also. It says that we have a right and a duty to throw off and replace an oppressive government. How much more oppressive does the government have to be when it is deliberately gaurding its power over us by denying the Constitution is the law of the land? The government’s legal limitations are what the Constitution describes. The Constitution does not grant rights to the people; it acknowledges and protects our existing rights, including the right to defend our lives and property against a despotic government. That the government has, for over 75 years, sought to limit our Constitutionally protected ability to protect ourselves from its incursions into our lives says, quite clearly what its true intentions are.

Montana’s HB246 – A Critique


While I applaud the general idea of Montana’s HB246, which would rescind all federal controls over firearms made in Montana, I have to wonder at just how helpful this will be to Montana gun owners, given that there are very few firearms manufacturers in Montana.

Of those that exist, Cooper Firearms of Montana makes hunting rifles, which most weapons experts agree are unsuitable as self-defense or military-grade weapons. Then there is David Gentry, of Belgrade, Montana, who makes only custom parts for rifles. KT Ordnance of Dillon, Montana also manufactures only rifle parts. Lilja Precision Rifle Barrels, as the name implies, is also a manufacturer of specialized parts for rifles. The Montana Rifleman, in Kalispell, is another manufacturer of parts, for rifles and handguns. Serengeti Rifles, on the other hand, is a Kalispell-based manufacturer of rifles, all intended for hunting. That’s it, folks. Those are Montana’s gun makers.

This raises the question, of what use is HB246, practically speaking, to Montana’s gun owners, especially when one considers that most gun owners in Montana own guns that are not made in Montana? Note, also, that the bill covers ammunition manufactured in Montana, as well. While there are plenty of ammunition suppliers in Montana – as there are everywhere – I could not find a single ammunition manufacturer in the state of Montana.

Is HB246 another of the several bills flooding state legislatures all over the country, allegedly aimed at protecting gun owners while actually doing very little to nothing for them, and – in some cases – actually aiding the confiscation of their guns? Surely, the lawmakers who drafted this piece of legislation were aware that most gun owners in their state don’t own Montana-made guns and ammo. Surely, they were aware that no ammunition is made in Montana. Given that, what are Montana lawmakers trying to pull, here? Do they really think gun owners in Montana are that stupid? If this law only protects Montana-made guns and ammo, then all guns and ammo made outside the state would still be just as subject to federal gun grabbing laws as it is now. Nice try, Montana, but you’ll have to do better than that.

Governors Address Pandemics & Continuity of Government

Leave a comment

According to an article on Government Technology.com, despite the fact several of our states have declared their sovereignty from the federal government, the governors of, presumably, all the states are being trained and recruited by that same federal government to participate in “continuity of government” planning. According to the article, the National Governors Association Center (NGA) has released a “new issue brief” to their members – i.e., the governors of all fifty states – on Sustaining the State Workforce: Strategies for Effective Pandemic Planning.

Aside from the glaring contradiction between declaring state sovereignty, on the one hand and then going along with feds in preparing for the next false-flag attack on Americans, it is becoming alarmingly obvious, given recent news stories, that this false-flag attack will likely come in the form of a biological attack made on some U.S. city or cities.

In 2008, the NGA released Pandemic Preparedness in the States: An Assessment of Progress and Opportunity. One wonders what “progress” it is to have a biological attack on U.S. soil, let alone what “opportunities” exist in that – as well as for whom.

The article goes on to say that, in 2006, NGA released Preparing for a Pandemic Influenza: A Primer for Governors and Senior State Officials. Here, again, it certainly looks as though not only the feds, but their lackies in the states, as well, have been planning this for some time, now. In truth, such a catastrophe has been planned for – indeed, called for – by the global elites who actually run our country from behind the scenes.

Given all this, plus the various state gun grabbing laws that are being feverishly passed, disguised as laws to “protect” us against gun confiscations during martial law, plus the Obama administration’s noises about youth corps, the threat made to the U.S. Senate by its leadership that if didn’t pass the banker bailout bill, there would be martial law in their states, and many other items that have been recent news, one doesn’t have to be a genius to see what is in the works, folks.

Farm Wars……A new site dedicated to the fight for farming freedom

Leave a comment

bpeterson on February 22nd, 2009

animal-revolution-copy1We are in the middle of a war for our food supply perpetrated by giant corporations such as Monsanto, in collusion with the Federal Government. If you don’t think so, take a look at the Federal NAIS proposal in this article LINK. Then go to this article and read how Monsanto is working on patenting animals just the way they did seeds LINK. It is time to stand up and fight or find ourselves surrounded by an enemy so insidious and pervasive that we won’t even know we are trapped until it is too late.


This site is dedicated to the fight for farming freedom. Stay tuned as we get the site up and running, then be prepared for the fight of your life. What you see will change the way you think forever.




USDA: Corporate welfare at its worst…Shut it down!




I am a full-on advocate of shutting down permanently, not only the FDA, but also the USDA.  Neither of these two agencies operates with any intention of protecting the public safety of food, drugs or any other product dumped into our markets from around the world or from bio-pirates looking to make big bucks controlling production and food supplies.  Both agencies are symbolic of the corporate whoring that is eating away at the foundations of the country.


In what has to be one of the most morally reprehensible assaults on not only the U.S., but also on agricultural systems around the world, USDA in 2001, patented terminator seed technology as a co-owner and developer of seeds that “commit suicide”.  This means one crop and you’re done. 


Think about this:  a world wide food shortage was looming in 2001, and the USDA helped to develop and patent seeds that produced sterile offspring so seeds could not be saved for a second crop.  They didn’t stop there either and were major promoters and enforcers of the use of terminator seeds especially in poor countries where food was already in short supply.


USDA is now instrumental in attempting to establish the National Animal Identification System.  With several bills in both houses of congress at this moment, multiple co-sponsors are hoping to cash in on the promotion and establishment of a system that is not only not needed, but will do to livestock what terminator seeds have done to the worlds food supplies.  The only thing deeper than the crap the Washington District of Criminals produces each day is the cash and perks rolling in to float their personal boats.


The USDA the FDA and multiple unconstitutional government agencies work hand in glove with what is supposed to be the people’s House and Senate.  Congress decides which corporate pirate they are enthralled with, which is going to provide the biggest long term dividends to them personally, allows lobbyists unfettered access to congress and then proceeds to legislate against the very people it swore to protect and defend.  Agencies such as USDA and FDA then step in as enforcers making up rules (laws) as they go along generating huge profits for them selves.


What part of this do you not get? 


The USDA and FDA have outlived any useful function and in fact have become agencies that exist for no other purpose than to promote and protect bio-pirates and corporate parasites of all stripes.  These agencies do NOT guard the American people’s food supply or make it safe.  This is not their function in today’s world.


Each and every state has its own version of FDA and USDA.  These agencies are far more likely to implement protective, cost effective measures that would protect food safety.  And, these agencies are local, relatively speaking, and accountability would not be demanded from some far away, secretive and corrupt federal bureaucracy that has long since decided to throw in with those who would harm us for profit.


Ending the existence of just these two agencies and reserving the right of the states to determine for them selves what is safe and what will be allowed to be dumped into our food supply could protect far more of us than the “For Sale” congress we have at the federal level.


The USDA and FDA represent federal tyranny and a threat to those who want the right to choose what they eat, and where it comes from.  As neither any longer, and have not for many years, worked on behalf of the American public, I see no need to continue funding the inefficiency, the mismanagement, the corruption of these two corporate whores.  Think of the money and the lives that could be saved if these two agencies alone were dismantled and tossed to the trash pile where they belong.

Alabama House Passes Gun Grabbing Bill


According to an article on the Mobile Press-Register’s website Al.com, Alabama has just passed a new law (HB225) that, in the author’s words, would ban gun confiscation during an “emergency” (such as martial law). However, in reading the law, one finds that it places the same faux “restrictions” on the police as the recent Mississippi law that purports to also ban gun confiscations but, in actual wording allows them. The operative wording in HB225 is: “if the officer reasonably believes that it is immediately necessary for the protection of the officer or another individual.” In other words, if the cops “believe” they are threatened by your being able to defend yourself, they can “legally” take your gun.

The problem with this is that, as in the many cases in which police have abused their authority, recently, and have tasered people (sometimes to death) for such things as “not complying” with their orders or because officers “felt threatened” by an unarmed, handcuffed woman begging for mercy while being held in police custody, the likelihood exists that these same officers and others just like them will “believe” you should surrender your gun to them.

Not coincidentally, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has urged support for the passage of this law, which flew threw the Alabama legislature without opposition, proving, once again, that the NRA backs gun grabbing while pretending to be a “gun rights” organization that supports the Second Amendment.

End the FDA: A cost cutting measure that would benefit the entire country

1 Comment

A November 2007 report titled “Subcommittee on Science and Technology, FDA Science and Mission at Risk” doc, was a scathing review of the not only the inadequacies of FDA, but the fact that it in no way can assure the safety of food in the United States. 


Citing organizational weakness and the inability of FDA to fulfill its mission, the report concludes that FDA is also lacking in science capabilities and information, also stating that “disintegration of the FDA food regulation function has continued unabated over the past quarter century”.

One has to wonder why so many man hours and so much money is being wasted harassing organic growers and independent farmers.  The answer lies in the “whois” funding the FDA?

I have concluded that the greatest threat to the safety of our nation’s food supply, comes not from potential diseases or infections, but rather from the funding of the FDA which comes from the very companies, corporations, or drug dealers operating as big pharma.  This is such an arbitrary system, so detrimental to the overall health of the nation, and yet congress as usual turns a blind eye and a deaf ear.

It works like this:  Let’s say a big gmo developer has developed a new genetically altered seed that has no true benefit, *and, *they know the crops from this seed will cause far more harm than good.  But! They have invested millions, sometimes billions in developing this mutation and they want their money back plus a hefty profit.  What’s a big gmo developer to do?

Knowing the seeds they have mutated will quickly invade natural crops, they patent their mutation.  Then they go to the FDA, and pay to have their mutation “approved”.  The developer supplies their own studies, tailored to their desires, refuses to include any independent studies if any were even done, and only provides information supporting their claims of safety or benefit.  FDA then assures the public the mutation is safe for public use, generally just taking the word of the developer, and banks massive
amounts of cash for their efforts and we move on to the next mutation of food, drugs or whatever.

Now FDA is engaged in promoting the National Animal Identification System. Here again we see the efforts of behind the scenes benefactors influencing the FDA decision and policy.  Monsanto, Genentech, Syngenta and many others attempting to capture the genetic patents on all breeds of livestock, intended to wipe out independent ranchers and farmers,  have been successful in co-opting the FDA which now acts as a paid enforcer of corporate policies.

Once the “pay as you go” system was established, the FDA became the client of these benefactors and profiteers and a good and well paid client always panders to its financiers.  What a system!

The FDA is no longer a viable agency and has not been for years.  Having long since shown its primary function is self preservation at the expense of the public, there is no viable reason to allow this agency to continue siphoning millions from the public coffers. Whatever the original intent was when this agency was initially created has been lost to corporate donors and contributors.


With the economy in such a shambles we need to start cutting costs, and ending the FDA would be a great starting point.

Tennessee’s New Gun Grabbing Law


Tennessee state Senator Doug Jackson (D-Dickson, TN) has introduced a new bill that, according to this article’s deceptive headline, would only “ban the microstamping of firearms.” However, if you read the very first sentence of the article, it is revealed that this law would not merely ban the microstamping of firearms, but would simply ban the SALE of microstamped firearms and ammunition, which, in effect, is simply another means of removing guns and ammunition from circulation!

Even though these guns and their ammunition may be microstamped (something most law abiding gun owners probably would have no reason to fear, in and of itself, since they are not criminals committing crimes and thus, have no reason to hide anything), they are still, nonetheless, perfectly useful guns and ammunition that will, if this bill becomes law, simply disappear from gun stores in Tennessee altogether, thus reducing the number of guns and ammunition in circulation in Tennessee. It is a cleverly disguised method of banning guns and ammunition and not retsrictive gun laws.

If the state of Tennessee is truly interested in protecting the Second Amendment rights of its citizens, it should be calling for the repeal of all gun laws. Period. It is the mountain of existing laws that prevents the Second Amendment from functioning as it was intended to.

The Second Amendment was never supposed to be infringed – i.e., it was never supposed to be altered, abridged, limited, regulated or modified in any way at all! The Second Amendment, itself, even says so!

“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Now, what part of “shall not be infringed” is so damned hard for legislators to understand!? It says what it means, it means what it says. Period.

Since Tennessee is among the several states declaring its sovereignty from the federal government under the Tenth Amendment, it may – and should – repeal all federally mandated gun laws in the state of Tennessee, thus guaranteeing that Tennessee is in no way affected by or beholden to the federal government from which it purports to remove itself. In fact, this could be extended, by all the rights claimed under the Tenth Amendment, to include any and all unnecessary layers of federal laws that have intruded, over the past two hundred years or more, upon the lives of Tennessee’s citizens. Now that would really be a declaration of state sovereignty, wouldn’t it?

Spy Cams in Digital Converter Boxes?


Wednesday, on You Tube, there was a video posted by a man who had claimed to have found both a spy camera and a microphone inside his Magnavox digital TV converter box. As the video clearly shows, there is both a camera and a micophone there, however, there seems to be some controversy over whether this is a hoax or not.

According to the comments section below the Infowars.com article on this video, some Infowars readers believe the converter box was modified to include the camera and microphone. They cite the lack of visible wires to and from the camera and microphone as evidence of their accusations. While I can’t clearly see any wires there, myself, it’s mostly because the video quality and the focus of the camera makes it difficult to tell.

I was intrigued enough to find out for myself, though, and, having a Philco box of my own, which I purchased last summer – prior to learning about the mind control aspects of television – I decided to investigate.

After some difficulty in getting the case opened (when in doubt, a screwdriver and hammer always works!), I found nothing inside that resembled what I would call a camera or a microphone. However, I did find a device, located just behind it’s own translucent window in the box’s front panel, that I can’t indentify the purpose of. At first, I believed it to be the LED for the “Power” indicator, but, as I viewed the video I made, I later realized this is not the case. In fact, if you look to the right of that device, you can clearly see a green diode and it aligns with yet another translucent area in the front panel that is clearly labeled “Power.” So, whatever the “mystery device” is, it is not the power indicator light. The question remains, then, what is it?

All this raises the question of whether or not manufacturers of these devices are installing cameras and microphones in them to spy on consumers. According to some sources, this is being done and finding such a device inside one of these converters would be the “smoking gun” to prove it. Meanwhile, though, I don’t think it’s even necessary for the powers that be to resort to spycams in these boxes, as, reportedly, the entire TV screen itself can be used as a camera. Or, so said Alex Jones in his Wednesday broadcast, anyway. I haven’t been able to find a source that corroborates this, though.

Now, before anyone starts calling me a “disinfo agent,” I need to clarify that I have no doubt that such spycam technology may be in use – either in these boxes, or within the TV sets, themselves. I’m only reporting as honestly as I can on what’s out there at this writing and who is saying what about it. I think it very likely that, if this You Tube video is a hoax, then it has been done deliberately to discredit those who have, like me, speculated that such spycams may be in use. I am not saying they don’t exist. I’m simply trying to be an objective journalist.

Whether there is this capability or not, however, is almost a moot point when one considers that our TV sets may harbor far more sinister technologies within, such as the Silent Sound Spread Spectrum technology I wrote about recently. With this at their disposal, the rather outdated concept of spycams seems almost quaint, by comparison.

ADDENDUM: Upon later reflection, I’ve deduced that the “mystery” device is most likely to be the unit’s infrared sensor – for the remote control that came with the unit. Duh! Well, I told you I don’t know anything about electronics, didn’t I?

The Articles of Confederation Reconsidered – Part II


In The Articles of Confederation Reconsidered, I posited that our original constitution, the Articles of Confederation, was wholly adequate and superior to the Federalist Constitution that replaced it and that, had we kept the Articles of Confederation, we could have avoided the tyrannical government we have today entirely.

A reader of one of my articles on the Second Amendment had suggested that I read a rather obscure book titled, Hologram of Liberty, by Kenneth W. Royce (AKA Boston T. Party) and he used the term (coined by Royce), parchment worship while mentioning this book to me. Well, I had already been vaguely aware that there was some sort of intrigue going on back in 1787 when the Constitution was written to supplant the allegedly inadequate Articles of Confederation, and I had heard it had something to do with some sort of scurrilous moves by the Federalists, lead by Alexander Hamilton, who were either infiltrated by Freemasons or were Freemasons, themselves (actually, as it turns out, so were some of the Anti-Federalists). But, that was all I could recall about it, having heard about this, initially, some thirty years ago.

Well, my thanks go out to that reader for reawakening me to this and I have now looked into the book he suggested, though I haven’t yet got a copy of it for myself. I did, however, visit the Javelin Press website, where there is a pretty fair amount of information about the book, including the following, which I have excerpted:

Civic Belief #1: The Congress was given few specific powers. All else was left to the States and to the people under the 10th Amendment. Ample checks and balances protect the Republic from federal tyranny.

Civic Belief #2: The Federal Government has become so powerful only because despotic officials have overstepped their strict, constitutional bounds.

If #1 is true, then how did #2 happen?

“The Constitution has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it”. Lysander Spooner, No Treason (1870)

Think about that. By either the Constitution’s purposeful design or by its unintentional weakness, we suffer under a federal colossus which takes a third of our lives and regulates everything from alfalfa to xylophones. This is Freedom? So, why aren’t Americans free? Perhaps we weren’t really meant to be!”

“…the 1787 Convention, its Constitution and Federal Government was the most brilliant and subtle coup d’etat in political history. While the majority of Americans then were Jeffersonian in nature, a few Hamiltonian Federalists eradicated our Swiss-style Confederation and replaced it with a latent leviathan. The Federal Government was given several escape keys to the putative handcuffing by the Constitution. Using the “necessary and proper” and “general welfare” clauses in conjunction with congressional powers under treaty, interstate commerce, and emergency, the “Founding Lawyers” of 1787 purposely designed a constitutional infrastructure guaranteed to facilitate a future federal colossus. While such a massive government was impossible to erect in the freedom-conscious 1780’s, the “virus” of tyranny was cunningly hidden within the Constitution to foment the eventual federal behemoth we are burdened with today. The feds take in a third of economic activity and regulate everything from the price of corn to the size of chimneys and it’s all constitutional!” Oh, it’s only ‘constitutional’ because autocratic Supreme Court Justices say it is!,” some would reply.”

“Yes, but the Framers allowed the Supreme Court, without any check or balance, to approve of federal encroachment on the States and on the people. There is no constitutional avenue for overturning a despotic Supreme Court ruling – and it was designed that way. The feds are allowed to “monitor” themselves, like students grading their own tests. Had the Framers wanted to really check the Supreme Court, they’d have at least created an appellate court (activated by petition) staffed by justices from the States. Had the Framers wanted to really hamstring Congress and the President, they would have given the people a “no-confidence” device to remove traitorous officials in midterm. Had they wanted to, the Framers could have (as did the Swiss) easily confined the Federal Government – but they didn’t want to. In their opinion, a strong central government – independent of real popular approval – was best for America. The Framers left the federal fleas in control of their own flea powder, and that’s why we have such an unchallengeable government today.

Most conservatives and libertarians believe that the Constitution and its Framers were Jeffersonian and laissez-faire. They were not, and they never claimed to be. This Jeffersonian gloss is echoic of two things: 1) What the Constitution was sold as to the people through The Federalist, and 2) How the Constitution, according to Jefferson, should have been interpreted under strict constructionism. Add the Red, White, and Blue, July 4th, the Founding Fathers and George Washington and you’ve got a civic religion with its unique parchment worship. There are but three ways to view anything, including the Constitution:

  • The way you see it.
  • The way you would like it to be.
  • The way it really is.

Friends of freedom have gazed dreamily at the Constitution for two centuries, fusing #1 with #2 to create a false #3. We need to snap out of our parchment worship and coldly study the predicament of Liberty–before it’s too late. Liberty-loving folks need to quickly understand that freedom is not well-served by the current Constitution. Neither is tyranny. It is Royce’s firm opinion that the Constitution will be radically amended, if not abolished altogether, by “us” or “them” within 10 years. Royce proves that the States and the people were politically “checkmated” at ratification, and discusses his three peaceful solutions prior the imminent insurrection now brewing. The goal of Hologram of Liberty is to spark an active synthesis of Libertarians, Patriots, and Conservatives to prevent a 21st century Dark Age in America.”

I, for one, will be reading this book and I urge that everyone do so. It is high time that we Americans learned the truth about our Constitution and why it hasn’t prevented a fascistic regime from emerging in America.

Having said that, it becomes even more apparent that I was onto something in suggesting the original Articles of Confederation should have been retained and that we’d all be a lot better off if it had been, in the first place. The thing is, I had no idea how right I was in saying so until I began looking into it further!

It is my firm belief, having looked into this, that, not only could the present state of affairs have been avoided had the Articles of Confederation never been scrapped, but that we need, desperately, to scrap our current fascistic regime and its constitutional underpinnings and start all over again where we left off – with the Articles of Confederation.

The Articles of Confederation Reconsidered


In contemplating the recent move toward the states declaring their sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment, I’ve been doing some reading of the Articles of Confederation and, in particular, how they compare with the Federalist Constitution we wound up with and, with the benefit of some hindsight about the two and, in light of where we have wound up today, I have to say there are some things about the Articles of Confederation that are not only preferable to our Constitution, but which may very well have avoided the situation we now find ourselves in.

One of the main criticisms of the Articles of Confederation has always been that the United States and each of the several states was empowered to coin their own money, thus leading to a situation in which each had its own currency. The objection to this was that it was allegedly an unwieldy system in which disputes often arose between states over the relative exchange rate between the competing currencies.

However, I find this to be the main strength of the Articles, in that, it would have made the silent coup by the international banking cartel impossible. It was the Constitution’s provision for a single currency that made us vulnerable to the criminal overthrow of our nation in 1913 – which was the ultimately successful final attempt at such a coup, after several previous attempts by the moneychangers to establish a central bank. A central bank would be impossible to establish under the Articles of Confederation, as there was no centralized economy under the Articles. This is a significant strength and the main reason the Articles were actually superior to the vision of the Federalists. In fact, there is evidence to support the contention that the Federalists were agents of the British Rothschilds and that they were deliberately steering the United States toward a centralized government for exactly the purpose of paving the way for a central bank.

Aside from this key difference, there are some other features of the Articles that would have helped to prevent the current police state from ever forming. Among these was the fact that, under the Articles, there was no President. There was only a unicameral Congress. Admittedly, the bicameral Congress we’ve had since 1788 provides more checks and balances than a unicameral Congress did, however, without a chief executive, this is a minor point, as there was no opportunity for a dictatorial leader to emerge under the Articles of Confederation.

Another feature of the Articles of Confederation was that there was no Supreme Court. Disputes between the several states were adjudicated by Congress. If we had retained that system, it might very well have prevented the corruption we’ve seen occur with a Supreme Court.

Yet another strength of the Articles was that any amendments to the Articles had to be agreed to by all the states, as opposed to our present Constitution, which can be altered by agreement between only three fourths of the states – a situation that is, basically, tyrannical toward the remaining one fourth of the states.

Although our Constitution supposedly prohibits an income tax by requiring that all taxes be apportioned according to population, as we’ve seen, this was subverted quite easily by the international banking cartel in 1913 when they established – by illegal means – the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution in order to pay the interest on our Federal Reserve currency, which goes directly to the bankers. This situation might have been avoided entirely by the Articles of Confederation, which provided for all taxes to be apportioned by Congress and collected by the states. In addition to this provision, the unanimity of the states required to amend the Articles, as stated above, would have prevented any possibility of an income tax being created at all and the fact that the states collected taxes would have prevented the bankers’ collection agency, known as the Internal Revenue Service, from ever existing.

Given all this, we can see, in hindsight, why the Rothschild/Freemason/Illuminati agents who steered us into a Federalized government in 1788 were so adamant about doing so. Had this been prevented and had we kept the Articles of Confederation, the history of the United States, as well as the world, would have been entirely different – and, most likely, entirely better, as well.

Farmers Under Attack…USDA and FDA acting as mercenaries for biotech industry


The General’s Communiqué

Maj. Gen. Albert N. Stubblebine III (US Army, Ret.)


Farmers Under Attack…


This urgent message from our correspondent, Linn Cohen-Cole:


We have less than two weeks to stop the take over the farms and ranches.

We need to rally people immediately. 

The new administration is pushing new farm controls through Congress as fast as possible and have coordinated the bills so there will be no debate and the committee meetings are closed.  

Transparency, change, undoing Bush’s regulations, giving the public time to comment, grassroots anything?  Our entire food system and thus our health is being decided without the public knowing and those who do know have zero access and the media is absent and they are moving at warp speed to sew this up.

Would you put these out, in this order, showing the article as you do so people are more likely to read it?  They are imperfect but the closest I’ve come to explaining how the game is going to be played.  No direct, frontal assault on organic farming but an insidious process of “infecting” organic farming…  

Example: imagine Joel Salatin’s wonderful organic farm under the direction of the USDA, with detailed instructions on what he must feed and when, how he must medically “treat” his animals and with what, what he must “spray” and when, … you get the picture.  These bills will industrialize all farms and insure the farmers are forced to buy chemicals and drugs.  Organic is dead.  As well as human control over the food supply.  As well as health.

Schoolmarm approach to punishing farmers out of farming.


Bills being rushed through Congress, set to destroy organic farming.


Militarizing local police forces……a crime wave of its own

Quote of the Day: “The idea that people lose their property but are never charged and never get it back, that’s theft as far as I’m concerned.” — Texas State Senator John Whitmire

Subject: Highway Robbery

If you happen to travel through east Texas, avoid Tenaha, especially if you’re African American. The Tenaha police may stop you and rob you, without even charging you with a crime. They even took $4,000 from a great-grandmother.

Tenaha, a town of 1,000, has used its robbery proceeds to build a new police station, and buy a second police car to extend its legal crime wave. But perhaps it’s unfair to single out Tenaha. Police departments all over America are doing the same thing, committing not only robbery, but also acts of terrorism.

Apparently, no one is safe. Just ask Cheye Calvo, the Mayor of Berwyn Heights, Maryland . . .

County police mistakenly targeted the Calvo home as a marijuana drop-off point. Police invaded the home, bound the mayor’s mother-in-law, and shot the family’s dogs. The Calvo’s were cleared of all wrongdoing, but the police won’t admit it made any mistakes.

Radley Balko reports  that the use of SWAT teams and no-knock raids has soared, even when there’s no evidence that a targeted home poses any threat. These aggressive raids allow police to surprise the suspect and find as much valuable property to seize as quickly as possible.

Law enforcement agencies then auction off this property and spend the money on themselves, even when the victims they robbed are never convicted of any crime. Instead, the victims must prove that they are NOT guilty of a crime.

Proving a negative is almost impossible. That’s why innocence is presumed in free societies, and the state bears the burden of proving guilt. Civil asset forfeiture turn this principle on its head. It even forces victims to prove that their property was never used in a crime.

This means that most seized property is never returned, even to people who are completely innocent.

The asset forfeiture laws give police a huge incentive to steal as much as possible. They also create a conflict-of-interest. Police make more money seizing the proceeds of drug sales than by preventing drug sales. This contradicts the supposed purpose of drug prohibition.

But it gets worse . . .

The newly-enacted “stimulus” bill includes $4 billion for state and local law enforcement.  You will now be funding an expanded wave of police robbery.

Please use our quick and easy Educate the Powerful System to ask Congress to repeal civil asset forfeiture.

Feds Cut Nevadans Some Slack on Real ID Application, But This is Still an Infringement of Their 4th Amendment Rights


This article makes it seem as if Nevadans are getting some sort of lucky break or that they’ve won some sort of concession, but the truth is that this Real ID program is still a violation of the Fourth Amendment’s protections against invasion of privacy.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

The real issue with Real ID is that it is not merely an identification card, but an RFID Chip, which can (and will be) used to track an individual’s every move. So, not only is Real ID in violation of the provisions of the Constitution that protect us from having to divulge sensitive information about ourselves to whatever authority demands it, but it is also an Orwellian technology that will make it impossible for anyone to go about their daily lives without being tracked, traced and monitored everywhere they go. That – not the expense to the states of implementing such a program – is the central issue in the fight against Real ID.

A Declaration of Individual Sovereignty


Given all the talk, lately, of the decalaration of sovereignty by several states, I have noted that there is little corresponding talk of individual sovereignty.

This is not at all a new concept and has a long history, at least as a philosophical ideal. I recall members of the Libertarian movement (not necessarily the Libertarian Party, who chose to allegedly achieve their ends by becoming part of the state they sought to supposedly do away with), back in the seventies, talking about individual sovereignty and individualist anarchism, etc, and these concepts were promoted in the nineteenth century by such individualist anarchists as Lysander Spooner.

Now, many may consider this far too radical an idea. Many will consider it preposterous, in fact. But, consider that those who do so have spent their entire lives with their minds entrained by a false society based upon the unseen rule of an all-encompassing unelected oligarchy – the very people we should all be rebelling against at this moment.

Given that our government, both federal and state, derives it powers to govern from the consent and will of the people, does it not follow that the same provisions of the Tenth Amendment that are currently being used by the states to declare their sovereignty may also be used by the people? In fact, the Tenth Amendment says so:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution nor  prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

What this means is that whatever rights that aren’t specifically mentioned as powers of either the federal or state governments exclusively are also granted to the people. So, if a state can declare its independence of the federal government under the Tenth Amendment, then so can an individual declare himself/herself independent of both the federal or the state governments in the event that both become despotic.

Now, it is my preference to have some form of minimal government. After all, the Declaration of Independence says:

“…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

The historical precedent is that humanity has relied, in one form or another, on some degree of governance, however imperfect that may be. But, what if all attempts (and, should the states succeed in shrugging off the current regime, this would be at least our third attempt to get it right, the first being the Articles of Confederation, the second being Federalism and the third being whatever comes next) to arrive at a just government continue to fail? What if the states withdraw from and dissolve the federal government, only to become equally as tyrannical, themselves? Then we have not one despotic regime to deal with, but fifty of them.

In looking ahead to what might happen, I see this as a very real possibility, granted that we know our states are currently infiltrated by those who serve the interests of the current federal government and the unseen oligarchy controlling it, and not the interests of the states or the people. In such a situation, can we realistically expect that the states, once freed of federal rule, won’t also become tyrannical regimes, themselves? It seems rather unlikely to me, given the lessons of history.

Therefore, as a sort of “insurance policy” of sorts, I’ve written – for whatever it may be worth (and I acknowledge that may be very little or nothing, given the present situation), a Declaration of Individual Sovereignty. Take it as you wish, do with it what you will, and feel free to re-write or revise it to suit your own needs or goals. I’m keeping my own copy – just in case.

P.S.: If the link isn’t working, here is the full text:

A Declaration of Individual Sovereignty

Be it known that I, _______________________, the undersigned, do hereby declare myself to be a sovereign individual under the provisions of the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America and that I reserve for myself all the rights and powers conferred upon the People of the United States of America by the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, which states:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,

nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively,

or to the people.”

Smart Grid: Government spying targets Rural America… from RFDAmerica

Leave a comment


This quoted paragraph is from an article posted at RFD America.  If you think for one minute there is not a full on attempt to surveille every moment of our lives; to track our every movement, every purchase, what we are doing in our homes……..you need to read this.  RFD has put together a warning of all the ways SMART GRID is going to affect our lives.

Remember how they pushed the digital conversion?  Remember the lamenting of various elected officials about rural Americans  “being underserved'”  and how they had a RIGHT to the best service possible?  Turns out, the best service possible is one that will enable the surveillance of every home in the country…..all of it linked to Homeland Security.


[Apocalypse now

One of the largest components of Smart Grid is already being implemented by the USDA; it’s called the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) it requires farmers to implant a RFID tag into the body of all of their livestock–cows, pigs, goats, chickens, sheep, all livestock. The NAIS threatens to destroy small-scale family farms. If you’re not familiar with the NAIS, here are a couple of resources: Downsize DC, NAIS: Too little too late? and NAIS: Let’s do some fuzzy math. Coupled with Smart Grid, the NAIS strengthens the ability of Government officials to control rural Americans as completely as they control people in the cities.

Remember, President Obama believes implementing Smart Grid is urgent. He wants the program to expand quickly, with all of us on the thinking grid by 2011. All of us. Resistance is futile.]


To Alter or Abolish………I couldn’t have said this better….or even as well

This annonymous letter is directed at those in the federal government……..now we just have to wait for the posters to show up crying about how we “hate America”.  Those who truly hate America and all that she stands for (or did) are those unwilling to defend our country from threats that are domestic.  Marti



Note: The following letter was found left behind at a local drinking establishment; the authors’ identity is unknown. It is passed along without comment.

“That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of [life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness], it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it…” ~ Declaration of Independence of the American Colonies, 1776

Dear Federal Government,

Drop dead.

Excuse us. Some may consider such bluntness to be indecorous, but why beat around the bush? In any case, we’ve been around this bush (Bush?) too many times to count already. It’s time to let you know what we really think of you, what we say behind your back, what we whisper to each other when you leave the room.

We hate you. We want you to drop dead. Or, anyway, to go away and never come back. You are not welcome anymore. We have tolerated you – and we emphasize “tolerated” – for a long time, long after whatever romance there may have been was gone. We can pretend no more. You are disgraceful, boorish, nauseating, corrupt, shameful, arrogant, dishonest, self-serving, parasitic, disgusting, hypocritical, and rotten to the core. You have not even one redeeming quality. There is nothing you offer that we want any longer. We’re not even sure what it is we ever saw in you to begin with.

We suppose you can be forgiven if this letter comes as a shock. “Why,” you say, “what do you mean? I still command great respect and inspire widespread adulation. And I still care about you. Isn’t it obvious?”

It’s true that, in public, we often nod our heads and agree with you, even defer or appear to defer to you. But we assure you that this happens not out of respect; rather, it arises merely from the fact that you have a lot of guns and a bad temper. Inside, we are seething and resentful. Inside, we imagine your demise in the most vivid and gratifying of ways. We may fear your irrational and violent behavior, but we manifestly do not respect or agree with you. We don’t love you. We don’t even like you. (See the part about hate, above.)

At any rate, our revulsion toward you has finally come to outweigh any fear we have of you. We refuse to keep our real feelings in for even one more second. We want you gone from our lives. And we mean completely. Vamoose. Go. Die.

Please understand we aren’t here to argue. No special new subsidy, tax break, or privileged “loophole” is going to sway our opinion or make us change our minds about this. We’ve been there, done that, for too many decades to count now. Likewise, your threats are starting to make us yawn and even laugh. You see, we know all your tricks now. We can see through your lies because we’ve heard them all so many times before. We are fully aware of your true nature, and we see that that nature is radioactive evil, wrapped in a tattered blanket of ignorance, foolishness, and stupidity.

Look, we know it’s only a matter of time anyway. Your dimwittedness, greed, fraudulence, and moral bankruptcy are finally starting to catch up to you. Even your former employees admit as much. Do you remember Paul Craig Roberts, one of your past Treasury officials? Today he says of your latest economy-wrecking and warmongering efforts:


“The world has never seen such total mindlessness. Napoleon’s and Hitler’s marches into Russia were rational acts compared to the mindless idiocy of the United States government.”

Mindless idiocy: We could not have said it better ourselves. Wait, yes, we could have, because we would have also mentioned your meanness and malevolence.

Our state governments are starting to feel the same way about you that we do. Many are openly refusing to obey your so-called “REAL ID” attempt at creating a national “your papers, please” regime of Hitlerian proportions. Some are even starting to make noises about the Tenth Amendment, which reiterates that you aren’t allowed to just do anything you feel like doing. (We are not big fans of our state governments either, but at least they don’t start wars, counterfeit our money, and prop up tyrannies across the globe.)

You see? Look in the mirror for once. The emperor not only hasn’t got any clothes, he’s a quadruple amputee demanding that everyone admire his muscular physique. We don’t know whether to laugh at or feel pity for such a pathetic creature.

In conclusion and just so we’re clear: We’re done. Pack up and get out. Better yet, don’t pack – all that stuff belongs to us in the first place. Just get out. And when you finally, mercifully, do kick the bucket, please make sure it is in some place far away from us, where we won’t have to smell the stench of your hideous, rotting corpse.

Pentagon bullies and trolls and other flame throwers intent on closing down the net


Isn’t it strange?  Everyone of us who uses the net to get real news, to by pass the MSM, who says anything to refute the propaganda coming from our own government, can be located, tracked, listed, identified, spied on and put under surveillance.  Our emails can be read, our contacts flagged and our web surfing and commenting is all data-mined and sent off to one of several intelligence agencies that now exist primarily for surveillance of the American people especially if we use Google.


The pentagon has also jumped into the game with its domestic spying program.  Pentagon bullies and trolls are now appearing all over the web inserting flame comments into sites that do not buy into government statements and policies or especially those sites which use the governments own actions, policies and documents to expose the truth.  The intent is to derail the discussions.  These people also attempt to bait writers and other posters into making statements that could be construed and twisted into threats against the government or population at large.  The overall intent is to end any non-government approved dialogue.  Another avenue being utilized by the spies who hate us are the Fusion Centers.


As the momentum gathers to end net neutrality, to convert the net to a “pay per view or access” the information gathered from these flame throwers who have been intentionally planted on sites all over the web, will be converted and used as evidence of the “threat” of an open net.  You see, we have to be frightened into believing our very lives are threatened by some boogey man out there who exists because the net is free, and information is easily accessible.


An article in the New York Times makes this comment:


“What a new Internet might look like is still widely debated, but one alternative would, in effect, create a “gated community” where users would give up their anonymity and certain freedoms in return for safety.” 


This simply means converting it to a “site for sale” giving monopolists such as Google the right to section off and sell access to various areas of the net.


We must give up “certain freedoms”:  like the right to privacy, free speech…little things like that.  Of course if you won’t give those things up you won’t be safe.  They’ll make sure you won’t be safe.  But at this point, who will keep us safe from our own government who seems to be intent on spying and targeting a fair number of us for disagreeing with the things they do and say?


As we come closer to having the net closed off to us, the articles will become more frequent, the reporting by MSM will be elevated citing the threats from so-called cyber-terrorism.  We will be carefully conditioned and readied to have the net shut down, for our own safety of course! 


Look for the increase in reports of child trafficking, and pornography.  These are serious problems and the government is well aware of them.  These reports will increase as the efforts to close the web builds.  Not that these things weren’t already a problem, they just weren’t made big enough to use as an excuse. We have to be buried in a constant avalanche of already known information to make the seriousness of these things appear to be a threat to us all in order to move forward with as little opposition as possible.


For those of us who will fight back?  We will be portrayed by the MSM and politicians who advocate the censoring of the net as having no morals or values.  We won’t love our country enough to give up our rights to speak out; we won’t love God enough (or at all) and that’s why we won’t support the efforts to close the net down.  Every effort will be made to demonize us and to portray us as anti-American, unpatriotic and possibly somehow linked in some vague way to those who do abuse the net.  Like the Pentagon.


My question is this……how is the government able to find us, track email, plant trolls on blogs, add names to “watch” lists and gather all the information they can on us, including everywhere we go on the net and who we talk to……but they can’t locate a kiddie porn site owner, they can’t find the individuals trafficking in human beings?  How is that possible?


The greatest threat to fascism and a government against its own people is the right to free speech and the access to information.  Knowledge is power, and knowledge has apparently reached a level where it has become a serious threat to the government.

Even as states refuse to comply, Homeland Security shoves REAL ID down our throats

Leave a comment


Provides grant support. $2.2 billion in support, primarily in the form of grants, to the Department’s State and local partners in homeland security. The Budget continues to emphasize programs that distribute grant awards on the basis of risk, and this year introduces a grant program to help States implement Real ID requirements and provide a more efficient, merit-based allocation of limited resources.

Bailout Bill Could Ban Guns


According to an article on Gun Owners of America’s website, the Obama administration’s bailout bill contains provisions that could set the stage for a complete gun ban nationwide.

The relevent sections of the bill are those that call for a national database of medical records – intrusive enough as that is – and these records could be used to establish various pretenses for gun confiscation, based upon supposed “mental illness.” If anyone in the database has been to a psychiatrist, for example, this can be construed as being indicative of “mental illness” or “instability,” thus negating an individual’s Second Amendment rights.

New York Times Calls for Internet 2

Leave a comment

The New York Times’ Week in Review (February 14th, 2009) has published an article in which the writer, John Markoff, asked (in the headline), “Do We Really Need a New Internet?” He goes on to answer that question with an unmistakable “yes.”

But, far from advocating improvements to the existing internet, Markoff has called for “a ‘gated community’ where users would give up their anonymity and certain freedoms in return for safety.”

He goes on to quote Stanford engineer Nick McKeown as saying, “Unless we’re willing to rethink today’s Internet, we’re just waiting for a series of public catastrophes.” Could these “public catastrophes” include engineered false-flag attacks on the internet, carried out by our own Department of Defense? After all, who best knows the internet’s vulnerabilities than the people who created it in the first place?

Even more reminiscent of the 9/11 false-flag attacks is Markoff’s quoting of Rick Wesson, CEO of Support Intelligence, a computer consulting firm, who says, “”If you’re looking for a digital Pearl Harbor, we now have the Japanese ships streaming toward us on the horizon.” Yep. Except they’re not Japanese, are they?

If there is any doubt in your mind as to what lies in store for the internet and where it is coming from and why, listen to this June 2008 segment on the “end of the internet” from the Alex Jones radio show.

FEMA & DHS Planning for Martial Law and “Mass Graves” in Chicago



“An Indiana county municipal official in the vicinity of Chicago has revealed the contents of his meetings with FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. The initial requests seem reasonable enough when FEMA asks the county officials to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan to deal with flooding, fires, high winds and tornadoes.

But as the required meetings and calls with FEMA and DHS continue over a two year period their request become more unusual, raising suspicions of county officials

We want to know every important thing in this county. We want to know where police departments are. Where weapons are stored. Hazardous material. Where can we land a helicopter. Where are the airports. How big a plane can you land at the airport. Where are all the bridges. Where are all the power stations. Where are all the generating stations.Where are all the substations. They literally wanted to know where everything was. Im sitting there thinking man if there was ever martial law. This kind of information is exactly the kind of stuff they are going to want. Were just laying it all out for them right there.

During the legally mandated meetings held with FEMA and DHS different disaster scenarios were reveled to county officials:

In late December 2008 municipal officials were invited to Indianapolis for a briefing on the state of Indiana. There were told if industry were to collapse for example GM going bankrupt resulting in mass unemployment a depression would soon follow and municipalities could expect to loose 40% of their funds. Every county in the nation would be required to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan. The county should prepare a plan to vaccinate the entire population within 48 hours and practice the plan several times. FEMA inquired to where mass graves could be placed in the county and would they accept bodies from elsewhere. The sheriffs department via the state sheriff association was told that no .223 ammunition rounds would be available as the military would be purchasing all stocks. The county was asked to make plans for hardening of police and fire stations, putting in hardened bunker type buildings around town. The county was asked to make plans for the possibility of up to 400,000 refugees from Chicago.”

I am urging that everyone listen to the accompanying audio from this radio interview with the county official mentioned above. It is quite chilling. To listen, just scroll down to the embedded You Tube video in which it’s contained:


The Cult of Death

1 Comment

For anyone who believes my story, Thousands of Bees Killed by Vandals in Florida is somehow just “alarmist” nonsense or “fear mongering,” consider that this type of thinking, aimed at the deliberate destruction of the human species has existed for many decades at the upper echelons of society and government and that its insidious and dangerous influence is being felt worldwide today.

Throughout history, elites and despots have sought to reduce and control human populations. In the last century, this effort was carried out systematically by many totalitarian regimes from Hitler’s Nazi Germany to the purges of the Stalinist Soviet Union to Pol Pot’s extermination of a third of Cambodia’s people to the genocide in Rwanda and Darfur.

These were all obvious exterminations, carried out by military means, very much in the open. Today’s eugenicists – the modern day heirs of the same people who helped Hitler kill millions – have largely gone underground since WWII, but they are becoming increasingly more bold and visible in recent years.

The eugenicists of today use a wide variety of various means to attack the earth’s population, slowly, methodically and gradually killing off millions of us by what they term “soft kill” or “slow kill” methods.

Tying all of these psychotics together is a global agenda that is shared by today’s power elite. The last obstacle to a global police state is the unwieldy population of the earth, which, in the minds of these people, needs to be reduced to a more manageable level. The result is that we are faced with a relatively small but growing number of people who have been persuaded that human beings need to be eradicated in order to “save the planet.” The questions never answered by these people are who shall the survivors be and, by those who propose the complete annihilation of the human race, what is the benefit of doing so and who will be left to appreciate it? That is to say nothing of their cold arrogance and indifference to the fact that most of us, if we really knew what they were up to, probably wouldn’t like it, to say the least.

As their numbers continue to grow, due to propaganda slickly packaged as “environmentalism,” the very real specter arises of someone or some group releasing upon the planet a catastrophic plague that could wipe out all of humanity. If you doubt that possibility, consider that many of the people who most fervently adhere to this genocidal policy are employed in high security bioweapons labs around the world. Given that, it may only be a matter of time until doom is unleashed upon us all.

I have been accused by my detractors of “fear mongering,” of causing “needless” alarm in people and then not proposing any “solutions” to the problems I’ve alerted them to. Well, first of all, my task is to alert you. But, beyond that, it is to motivate you to action. I am merely the messenger. It is up to you to use the information I have given you. It is not being provided for your entertainment. My mission is to save humanity from the very same things I’m warning you of. I cannot do this alone, nor am I equipped to devise some “master plan” for achieving it. It is up to humanity to save humanity. We are all in this together. What other motivation than your own survival instinct do you require before you turn off the TV, get up and do something yourself, instead of continually expecting others to do it for you?

Thousands of Bees Killed by Vandals in Florida

1 Comment

As if the so-called “Colony Collapse Disorder” (CCD) isn’t enough of a threat to our survival on this planet, now we have to contend with the added specter of organized acts of sabotage that can only be called eco-terrorism.

Since we rely upon the bees to pollenate the crops that sustain not only human food supplies, but the food supply of the animals who are also a part of our food supply, as well as the entire plant kingdom, which generates the earth’s breathable atmosphere, such an act that has occurred in Florida recently cannot be taken lightly as just some punks destroying private property.

There is the very real possibility the perpetrators of this crime are not just a small, disorganized bunch of miscreant youths out to have some pranks and fun. Even if that is all they are, the very grim possibility still exists that deliberate, coordinated attacks upon the remaining bee population could very well be carried out in a systemic campaign to make the earth unlivable.

Who would do such an insane thing, you ask? Well, you don’t have to look very far to see that there are today an alarming number of sick people who actually believe it would be a great idea if humanity is completely wiped off the face of the earth. Many of these very same people are teaching your children – or perhaps yourself – in universities all over the country, indeed, all over the world. What is more alarming is that many of these people are also employed in level four bioweapons labs where deadly toxins, bioweapons and nerve agents are being tested.

Some of these sick people are even organizing their ideas on the internet in a coordinated campaign to actually carry out the mass extinction of the human race!

The Great Second Amendment Con Job – Part II


In the first part of this series, I exposed the phony “march on Washington” planned for next year by several “gun rights” groups, including the NRA. In fairness, I acknowledged that Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (one of the event’s sponsors) seems to genuinely be a legitimate organization that opposes restrictions to the Second Amendment. While I made an attempt to verify Gun Owners of America’s stance, as I have known them to also be such an upstanding organization, I could not, at the time, find a clear indication of their stance on concealed carry laws while examining the latest version of their website. In my estimation, this would indicate whether they accept compromises of the Second Amendment or not. This is, in my opinion, the true litmus test of all who claim to “defend” the Second Amendment, for, if one truly defends the Amendment, then one must, without reservation, oppose any and all alterations of it, which would include all gun laws that are now on the books, as well as any that are proposed. Some call this an “extreme” position, but, if defending the Constitution as the founders wrote and intended it is “extreme,” then, yes, I am an extremist and damned proud of it.

In any case, I want to focus, in particular, on the NRA, at this point, because I believe it to be the most egregious offender when it comes to misleading gun owners about their constitutionally guaranteed rights.

Continuing in that vein, I did further research into the NRA’s backing of several gun control laws:

  • 1934 National Firearms Act, which was the “Mother of All Gun Control Laws,” was supported by the NRA. This law, which clearly violated the Second Amendment, has been allowed to stand for 75 years and is the foundation upon which further erosions of the Second Amendment have been built.

  • Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986, AKA the Hardy Law: This law was passed in May 1986 to amend the Gun Control Act of 1968 (scroll down the page in this document to read a 1968 article in the NRA’s publication, The American Rifleman to see how they defended their position on the Gun Control Act), which was illegal, in the first place, as it violates the Second Amendment. Even though Hardy “liberalizes” the Gun Control Act of 1968, it is the NRA’s enthusiastic support of Hardy – as opposed to demanding the full repeal of the Gun Control Act of 1968, that is suspicious. Again, if the NRA is truly a “defender” of the Second Amendment, as it claims to be, then why does it consistently support layer upon layer of additions to the existing accumulation of gun control laws, all of which violate the very Amendment the NRA claims to defend?

  • Mississippi SB2036 is a recently passed bill (mentioned in the first part of this article) which sneakily promised to “protect” gun owners in Mississippi from firearms confiscations in the event of martial law. Aside from the ominous overtones of this bill (how does Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant know there will be martial law in Mississippi?), the bill, as passed into law, only describes the conditions under which the state may confiscate guns, rather than protecting gun owners from such confiscations, as the Lt. Gov. and the media reported the bill would do. Of course, the NRA supported this bill, as well.

  • H.R. 2640, or the NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007, sponsored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy and Senator Pat Leahy and backed by the NRA, is a bill that adds “a massive expansion of the NICS check, otherwise known as the Brady Registration Act.

People who claim to protect something – whatever it may be – usually act accordingly. In other words, they act to protect whatever it is they deem needs protection. People who claim to protect something and then act to undermine protections for it are called, at best, liars. When the people in question are a multi-billion dollar budgeted organization with millions of members who claim to protect a fundamental part of our nation’s founding document and the freedoms it represents – and then act to undermine that very same document by supporting the continual addition of laws that violate it, they are called, at best, traitors.

NAIS ALERT!!! H.R. 814 will make NAIS a federal law


NAIS ALERT!!!  H.R. 814 will make NAIS a federal law



To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, the Federal Meat Inspection Act, the Poultry Products Inspection Act, and the Egg Products Inspection Act to improve the safety of food, meat, and poultry products through enhanced traceability, and for other purposes.


February 3, 2009

Ms. DEGETTE (for herself, Ms. BORDALLO, Mr. NADLER of New York, and Ms. DELAURO) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Agriculture, and in addition to the Committee on Energy and Commerce, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned

H.R. 814 called the [Tracing and Recalling Agricultural Contamination Everywhere Act of 2009] or, [The Trace Act of 2009] is nothing less than the federal intent to mandate the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) and of course “and for other purposes”.




`(a) Definition of Traceability- In this section, the term `traceability’ means the ability to retrieve the history, use, and location of an article through a recordkeeping and audit system or registered identification.


`(b) Requirements-

`(1) IN GENERAL- Cattle, sheep, swine, goats, and horses, mules, and other equines presented for slaughter for human food purposes, and the carcasses or parts of carcasses and the meat and meat food products of those animals, shipped in interstate commerce shall be identified in a manner that enables the Secretary to trace—


`(A) each animal to any premises or other location at which the animal was held at any time before slaughter; and


`(B) each carcass or part of a carcass and meat and meat food product of such animals forward from slaughter through processing and distribution to the ultimate consumer.


`(2) TRACEABILITY SYSTEM- Not later than 1 year after the date of the enactment of this section, the Secretary shall establish a traceability system for all stages of production, processing, and distribution of meat and meat food products that are produced through the slaughter of animals described in paragraph (1).


`(c) Prohibition or Restriction on Entry- The Secretary may prohibit or restrict entry into any slaughtering establishment inspected under this Act of any cattle, sheep, swine, goats, or horses, mules, or other equines not identified as prescribed by the Secretary under subsection (b).


Apparently USDA was inefficient in its efforts to forcibly overtake the US food supplies and the federal government has found it necessary to intervene and make mandatory the implementation of NAIS on all levels. 




(g) Relation to Country of Origin Labeling- Nothing contained in this section prevents or interferes with implementation of the country of origin labeling requirements of subtitle D of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (7 U.S.C. 1638 et seq.).’.


Isn’t this section a hoot!  No mention is made of the labeling law passed in 2005 requiring the country of origin to be listed on the label of foods, or, the listing of cloned, genetically altered or mutated foods.  A law which this same government has refused to enforce in deference to corporate donors who know the garbage they are packaging and selling isn’t fit for human consumption.


H.R. 814 is clearly nothing less than the federal legislation converting NAIS from a bad a idea to horrendous plan for seizing food production from any source in the US and handing it over to Frankenfood industrialized factory farms on behalf of the bio-pirates who have apparently bought and paid for this legislation.


Ms. Degette, Ms. Bordallo, and Mr. Nadler should all be removed from office.  In fact anyone supporting or voting to pass this latest piece of anti-American garbage should be run out of the country. 


When will we stop abiding traitors, corporate whores and world government advocates in the government of the sovereign United States?  Our House and Senate on both sides are filled with individuals who have neither patriotism nor loyalty to this country and who work to dismantle our Republic, our freedom and our way of life.


The three “public servants” sponsoring this bill are just a small trio in what has become the wholesale destruction of our nation perpetrated by one corrupted congress after another.


What will it take for the American public to stand up and say “enough!”.

Monsanto and the Schoolmarm method of punishing farmers out of farming



by Linn Cohen-Cole    



One thing after another is raining down on small farmers.  

NAIS which is insane on the face of it but has left farmers worrying it is about something much bigger and incredibly more threatening.  For sure the penalties, even for infractions are beyond anything anyone could being to handle.  Farmers it seems, face risks too great to run.

And then there are the buried regulations in the FDA which are criminalizing all aspects of farming by listing them as “sources of seed contamination” – a new contamination if ever there were one.  But seed cleaning equipment is listed and farmers are now supposed to only use what is approved, which is, again, beyond their capacity.  Where was there any contamination of seed, ever, from seed cleaning equipment which would necessitate a farmer giving up a perfectly good seed cleaner they made themselves and used for 40 years and which costs nothing now, to put in a building and equipment for a million and half dollars … for each line of seed?  Never mind the carbon foot print of that versus an already existing seed cleaner.  The upshot of that is farmers are too poor to farm.

The game is simple – scare the public and then use “food safety” and “animal diseases” as the argument for systems that are onerous beyond human endurance.  What systems?  Industrial ones that a normal farmer can’t afford to put in place with bureaucratic tasks that turn farming into something approaching filing out a complex tax return daily, and penalties that are greater than those imposed on felons.

The latest joke on farmers is peanuts.  The problem, like all the problems, are on the industrial side, but what comes from “peanuts” is not peanuts.

So, having whipped the country into a frenzy, here ere come two house bills – out of New York and suspiciously like Monsanto’s friend Hillary Clinton’s plan to centralize the USDA and FDA to save us from “contamination.”  And just after Vilsack said it wasn’t time to do such a thing but they have surely had  this in the works for sometime, this centralizing of corrupt power in the USDA and FDA, over our food.

Goodness they have got the country by the short-hairs on “contamination,” running ads for one thing after another to sterilize our kitchens, our bathrooms, our carpets, our hands, our children even, to save us from it.  My favorite ad is the one of the little brother reaching over to hand his baby sister something but with gross green slimy “bacteria” growing on his hands.  Good grief.  Just ditch the boy and have done, because boys will be boys and get dirty and heaven only knows he might touch his baby sister again.  

Makes you wonder how we all managed to survive to grow up without all that sterilization.  And why kids are sicker now than they ever used to be.

Back to the bill.  The name is a marvel.  “Tracing and Recalling Agricultural Contamination Everywhere Act of 2009.”

The State Giveth, the State Taketh Away

A couple of days ago, I saw an article on Infowars.com (also available on the Daily Paul.com) about Mississippi’s Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant introducing a new law (SB2036) that would allegedy “protect” Mississippi gun owners from gun confiscations in the event of martial law being declared in Mississippi.

My first question, upon reading this was why Lt. Gov. Bryant was anticipating martial law, in the first place. Does he know something that most Mississippians don’t know?

Then I saw that he had said the bill would “restrict” confiscations and that was, for me, the ultimate tipoff. If the intent was to truly protect gun owners from gun confiscations, then the operative word should have been “prohibit,” not “restrict.” There is a huge difference, but, apparently, the distinction is subtle enough for most people that many have not caught onto this semantic sleight of hand.

Sure enough, as you can see by reading the law as it was passed by the Mississippi legislature, the law gives the state of Mississippi complete carte blanche to decide exactly how it will “restrict” itself from seizing guns. As history teaches, governments never willingly relinquish their power.

No NBAF in Kansas!

Leave a comment

Or anywhere else, for that matter! The National Bio-and-Agro Defense Facility (NBAF) to be built in Kansas (and they are planning the same for Texas and other locations around the nation, as well) is “A facility where research on highly infectious diseases to food animals is conducted” that is to be constructed at the Kansas State University campus at Manhattan, Kansas. It’s mission is to study diseases like Foot & Mouth Disease (FMD), for which there are no vaccines or treatments.

According to No NBAF in Kansas, a group of concerned citizens who believe this facility would be too dangerous to have anywhere on the U.S. mainland, let alone in the heart of the nation’s food production areas, “We believe that the local media and the proponents of this plan have not given the public enough information to make an informed judgment. When the residents of this state understand the risks and uncertainties of this facility they will also say NO.”

According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), FMD is “… a highly contagious animal disease … FMD virus is the most infectious animal disease-causing virus. It has been determined that for certain strains, the dose required to infect cattle or sheep through inhalation is about 10 organisms (10 1 TCID50).” Does this sound like something you want “tests” being done on anywhere near the nation’s food supply?

This is only one of several such facilities that are to be built right in the midst of our nation’s food production areas. The Plum Island Animal Disease Center, which has been located on an island off the northeast shore of Long Island, New York for years is about to be moved to the mainland by a directive of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Some experts, including the former director at the aging Plum Island facility, say research ought to be kept away from cattle populations – and, ideally, placed where the public already has accepted dangerous research.

The former head of the U.S. Agriculture Department’s Agricultural Research Service said Americans are not prepared for a foot-and-mouth outbreak that has been avoided on the mainland since 1929. According to a blog report posted on Infowars.com, “Foot-and-mouth virus can be carried on a worker’s breath or clothes, or vehicles leaving a lab, and is so contagious it has been confined to Plum Island, N.Y., for more than a half-century – far from commercial livestock. The existing lab is 100 miles northeast of New York City in the Long Island Sound, accessible only by ferry or helicopter. Researchers there who work with the live virus are not permitted to own animals at home that would be susceptible, and they must wait at least a week before attending outside events where such animals might perform, such as a circus.”

The locations selected for these facilities include Athens, Georgia; Butner, North Carolina; San Antonio, Texas; and Flora, Mississippi, all of which are home to the rasing of livestock for the nation’s food supply.

Warn the People!

For those who may just be beginning to find out about the New World Order, the NAFTA Superhighway, the North American Union, etc, there is a new website that serves as not only an introduction to such topics, but is also a community of fellow citizens drawn together in common cause to defeat the New World Order.

Warn the People features videos, each one with its own comments section, as well as an open forum for discussion and communication and a links page with some excellent sources of information.

It is recommended that the uninitiated view the videos first and then leave comments about them. When you’ve viewed all eight videos you will have effectively been awakened to the gist of what is happening in the world today. Then you can sign up for membership, which is free, and which allows you to receives updates and other information via email.

Even if you’re already familiar with the agenda of the global elite, you will find information on this site that you may not have known of before. I highly recommend it.

Oklahoma’s H.B. 1414 Would Allow Open Carry


Now this is what I’m talking about! To heck with concealed carry laws that only add layers of bureaucratic red tape to your Second Amendment right to carry a gun! Oklahoma state Rep. Mike Ritze (R-Broken Arrow, OK)  has just introduced a new bill to the Oklahoma House of Representatives that would, if passed into law, allow Oklahoma gun owners to openly carry a rifle or shotgun in a pickup truck gun rack (just like we used to be able to do) and to openly carry a pistol in a belt holster without the need for a handgun license.

The current Oklahoma law restricts open carry to the transport of an unloaded gun for purposes of attending a gun class, hunting, going to a sporting event or in a police or military function, also without the requirement of a handgun license.

H.B. 1414 specifies that the firearm would have to be carried in a belt holster, a scabbard or a case designed to carry firearms that is “wholly or partly visible.”

Concealed carry of a gun is one way to protect yourself, but open carry is much more effective in sending a “don’t tread on me” message to criminals (and government thugs?) that will usually alleviate any need to ever draw your weapon, in the first place. When this becomes a common sight in public, watch the crime rates drop like a rock.

UPDATE: And a recantation. I have looked more carefully at H.B. 1414 and have determined that, while it appears to “allow” open carry, there are restrictions applied that severly limit the extent of this. Just as with all other recently passed gun laws that make the pretense of granting rights or lifting restrictions, H.B. 1414 is just another layer of gun control added to the thick, filthy scum of regulations that have violated the Second Amendment since the National Firearms Act of 1934 set the precedent for the negation of our right to defend our own lives and property.

NAIS: Another link in the attempts to control food supplies worldwide

Leave a comment

ppjg (C) 2009 Marti Oakley

Anyone who has researched the history of the National Animal Identification System realizes very quickly this global strategy being pushed by the toxic Monsanto Corporation, Genus and PIC, is nothing less than a plan to seize control of the worlds food production on every level.  And, like the efforts to convert water from a human right, to one of a commodity to be sold only to those who can afford it, food of all kinds, from all sources will no longer be a human right if these Frankenfood corporations and the United Nations are successful.


Genus, and other corporations who are jumping on the bandwagon in the hopes of patenting animal genetic resources, is the primary force behind NAIS.  The USDA is a willing and compliant partner, acting as lawmaker, spy, judge and executioner.  The USDA having been reported repeatedly for illegal search and seizure is allowed to act as a mercenary agency on behalf of these private interests without reprimand from congress.  In fact, you would never know we even have a congress when it comes to NAIS and the actions of USDA.


The biotech company’s intent is to monopolize existing breeds of farm animals just as they have done with genetically altered seeds.  73% of all grain now grown in the US is genetically altered and patented.  The intent is to pirate all grain crops using seed which, in the case of Monsanto, is only “leased” to the farmer…not sold.  This according to a rule Monsanto developed itself, after the seeds had been sold.  Using this rule, Monsanto is suing farmers…..after sending their own mercenary agents storming onto private land collecting samples and seizing crops. 

The ‘inventors’ of animal breeds  from No Patents on Seeds

“Corporations like PIC and Genus, who are among the biggest international players in the animal breeding sector, are especially active in buying up other firms and patent applica­tions filed. Monsanto is on the other hand entering this business as a relative outsider, having been basically active in a different area. This company has not only bought its way into pig breeding and filed patents having a broad cover­age, it has also concluded extensive licensing agreements with the genome company, MetaMorphix, which has for its part filed numerous patent applications in this sphere.”   http://www.no-patents-on-seeds.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=53&Itemid=42

Rather than advancing biodiversity which is the claim of not only biotech, but also the United Nations, genetic alteration of existing breeds of livestock and the resulting patents would seriously reduce diversity.  Hybrids, which would result from the genetic tampering, would be highly susceptible to disease if such tampering did not actually create new and unknown diseases. 


 “The US company Monsanto, net sales 7 billion USD, is better known for its leadership in genetically modified seed than in livestock genes. But with Monsanto’s acquisition, cooperation and patent policy regarding cattle and pig, it in a few years may well dominate gene markets not only with regard to plants but also to livestock. In 2004 it entered a strategic and exclusive collaboration with the genetic research company MetaMorphix, giving Monsanto access to the completest available swine genome data available/                                                               http://www.no-patents-on-seeds.org/images/documents/livestock_genetics_.pdf                                                                                                               

Genetic alteration is not the same as selective breeding where livestock is carefully bred to produce the best qualities of the breed.  Genetic alteration generally is done to accelerate growth or production at the expense of the animal.  

The wildly false claims Monsanto made about recombinant bovine growth hormone [rBGH] is a prime example of the harsh affects of forcing accelerated growth or production.  Monsanto claimed rBGH increased production by at least 20%.  They just failed to tell the farmer or consumer the 20% was the result of mastitis and the increase was the amount of pus in the milk that resulted from using the growth hormone.    http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/food/foodsafety/dairy/no-rbgh

In order for genetic patenting to overtake independent livestock producers, it is necessary to know who is breeding what and where is it located.  That’s where NAIS comes in.  This system, if it isn’t stopped, will catalogue all farm and ranch animals and domestic pets. Once catalogued, this data will all be held in corporate data banks which will tell the biotech company just exactly where to establish their altered breeds.  As with the contamination of natural crops by uncontrolled genetically altered seeds, companies such as Monsanto will develop herds in close proximity to natural herds and wait for the opportunity to present itself for cross-breeding.  Once they are assured this has happened, the livestock owner will be sued, just like the seed farmer, and a valuable natural herd will be stolen and the USDA will likely be doing the herding. 

Behind all of the USDA grandstanding about needing to be able to track disease outbreaks, lays the true intent.  The USDA is not concerned with food safety or animal disease outbreaks.  USDA is facilitating the data collection necessary to locate, identify and seize natural herds and to establish industrialized factory farms to replace independent farms and ranches in the US. 

Every effort must be expended to not only halt any further activity in implementing NAIS, but also to abolish the USDA which has become nothing more than a mercenary enforcement arm of biotech pirates.
