Among the 11 books authored by Hedges were these popular titles: 1) American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America; 2) War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning; 3)What Every Person Should Know About War; 4) Death of the Liberal Class; 5) Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle.
Hedges received his B.A. in English literature from Colgate University and a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard. Hedges has studied ancient Greek and Latin and speaks Arabic, French and Spanish.
He has taught at Columbia University, New York University, Princeton University and The University of Toronto and currently teaches prisoners at a maximum-security prison in New Jersey. In 2014, he was ordained at the Second Presbyterian Church in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
After hours and hours of conferencing this last week with several individuals and groups across the country, regarding the threat that the entire system of probate tribunals poses to the public at large, we have reached the consensus that this unlawful, unconstitutional system, cannot be repaired or made to be fair and equitable and therefore must be disposed of.
We all agreed it was pointless to contact any legislative representative. These elected officials are all fully aware of the system of human trafficking for profit that occurs daily in the probate system, although they will claim that they do not know. As our elderly are kidnapped and held in isolation while their estate is plundered by professional predators called “guardians”, our children are subject to being kidnapped at gunpoint by swat teams at the behest of Child Protective Services (CPS). CPS is now regarded as the largest child trafficking organization on earth.
Do you really believe your legislators don’t really know?
What are administrative tribunals?
“The distinguishing mark of an administrative tribunal is that it possesses a complete, absolute and unfettered discretion and, having no fixed standard to follow, it is guided by its own ideas of policy and expediency. Hence, acting within its proper province and observing any procedural formalities prescribed, it cannot err in substantive matters because there is no standard for it to follow and hence no standard to judge or correct it by.”
Make no mistake about it, Administrative “courts” are not courts at all in the scope of the Constitution. These are specially created tribunals which make their own rules, and do not recognize natural rights and liberties as defined in the Constitution. More
” They are required to be Bar Association attorneys by the rules of their Jural Societies called Bar Associations and have taken Oaths of Nullification, known as the Kol Nidre, which according to the underlying religion of the Sea allows them to void any agreement they make, break their word with impunity and act deceitfully (commit fraud) without consequence. These characters “simulate” judicial proceedings so as to — in their own words in the Federal Code of Civil Procedure — give an “appearance” of justice. “
All forms of law except Natural Law (Law of Gravity, Law of Heredity, etc.) come from religion. This is because our religion establishes what we consider “right” and “wrong” and that in turn establishes our Law.
The Law of the Land in the Western World is based on the Mosaic Law of the Bible, which is common to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Ten Commandments are the basis of the Law of the Land, which in this country is American Common Law. The Constitution is also formed under Common Law and is called the “Law of the Land” by the Federal Government to distinguish it as the “law” that they must obey when dealing with us, the people of the United States, and our unincorporated states on the land known as the States of America.
Justices, popularly called “judges” in our Common Law Courts are NOT members of any Bar Association, do not hold any titles of nobility, and serve as either Magistrates (as when a Justice of the Peace performs a marriage) or Members of the Court (as when they pronounce the sentence required by the Trial Jury).
Gordon Duff was again absolutely right when he declared in 2012 that
“Slowly, every police department in the United States, at the behest of the Department of Homeland Security [DHS], is being trained by Israeli groups. As part of this training, there is an increased move to use of military uniforms, armored vehicles, heavy weapons, illegal surveillance, lying to the people, press and courts and systematic interference in the electoral system…”
If this seems hocus pocus, hang in there. Listen to the Boston Globe back in 2011:
“Police chiefs from Newton, Framingham, and Belmont headed off last weekend for a weeklong counterterrorism seminar in Israel, funded by the Anti-Defamation League. They are joining a dozen other senior law enforcement officials from the Northeast to network and get first-hand advice from Israeli security experts.”
Request to Audit the Commission on Judicial Performance Was Passed at
Today’s Joint Legislative Audit Committee Hearing
SAN RAFAEL- In a unanimous vote from the consent calendar, members of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee in the California Legislature passed an historic request this morning to audit the California Commission on Judicial Performance for the first time since it was established in 1961. Since its inception, this small but powerful judicial oversight agency has operated in relative secrecy, until June of this year, when Santa Clara County Judge Aaron Persky’s lenient sentencing of Stanford University student rapist Brock Turner created a national outcry that unwittingly thrust the agency into the media spotlight.
“The Center for Public Integrity gave California an ‘F grade’ on its 2015 report card for judicial accountability, said Kathleen Russell, the executive director of the Center for Judicial Excellence. “California’s lack of judicial accountability is renowned, and it weakens the public’s trust in its judges,’ she continued, “so this audit is an important step toward creating a culture of accountability for our state’s nearly 2,000 judges.”
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” It was a time of controversy and a time of deceit. The Republican and Democratic National Conventions, now just over, showed some stark contrasts.
The Republican National Committee along with many in the GOP were less than pleased with the eventual nominee—Donald Trump. However, the controversy surrounding Mr. Trump’s nomination, for all its warts, was open for everyone to see. There was never any secret that the “GOP establishment” didn’t want a Trump nomination. Some of the prominent GOP stalwarts refused to endorse Mr. Trump and were absentees from the convention. In fact, Mr. Trump invited his vanquished opponents to speak at the convention and, like Senator Cruz, they were not constrained in what they could say. Such is the reality of a true democratic process—someone wins, the others lose, and some are sore losers. That’s all pretty much normal and expected. Regardless of who wins, there will always be discontent.
Contrast this to the Democrat primaries. All along the Democrat Party claimed to be neutral during the primary process, while Senator Bernie Sanders, among others, claimed there was favoritism and collusion. Recently leaked emails show that the process was anything but open and fair. It seems that the Democratic National Committee was in the tank for Secretary Clinton from the beginning, and worked at undermining the Sanders campaign.
Of course, Senator Sanders was unaware of the collusion against him when he endorsed Hillary Clinton, and he has since left the Democrat Party—a move that has not made many headlines in the press, but should have. When was the last time a presidential contender left in such manner? Even Ted Cruz—the sore loser of the GOP that made national headlines with his non-endorsement speech—is still a Republican. With its dishonest and conniving nature exposed by the emails, can we believe anything the DNC espouses?
Another claim long held by conservatives—of a liberal bias in the media—has been more than confirmed with the email leaks. They show not just bias but actual collaboration with the DNC and the Clinton campaign. Can we rely on independent information from the media, after seeing this collusion?
I’m pleased to plug a new important book – Orlando False Flag: The Clash of Histories – available now on Amazon edited by my friend Kevin Barrett. It’s his third volume in a series of publications on false flags. First there was We Are Not Charlie Hebdo, then came Another False Flag? Bloody Tracks from Paris to San Bernardino. And now Kevin has once again assembled journalists and scholars to contribute chapters to his latest seminal work offering an alternative explanation far more in line with the truth than the government’s official false narrative. And I’m especially honored that Kevin asked me to contribute a chapter entitled “The Empire’s Post-9/11 Hegelian-Style Warfare Against Both the World and American Citizens.” Below are a few comments about Kevin and his work, an informative review, the Table of Contents and contributing authors’ bios. Finally, at the bottom of the page is a link to Amazon.

“Fierce debate” over Orlando False Flag:The Clash of Histories
(and its editor Kevin Barrett)
“Mr. Barrett’s views . . . have outraged some Wisconsin legislators and generated a fierce debate about academic freedom.” – The New York Times
Barrett “never expected to find himself carrying the banner for one of the most controversial theories of our times.” – Chicago Tribune
“Kevin Barrett is to be applauded for Orlando False Flag, his latest instant anthology false flag exposé. It presents a variety of sometimes clashing views. As such it’s an example of much-needed radical informational democracy in print, devoted once again to the key challenge of our time: vast manipulative deception by the American Empire.” – Barrie Zwicker, author of Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11
Kevin Barrett should be “in the Charles River, floating down towards the harbor.” Bill O’Reilly, Fox News commentator
“Under these circumstances, the patriotic act is disbelief of the government narrative thereby rendering the actions of the Deep State dysfunctional.” – Cynthia McKinney, former six-term Congresswoman and Green Party Presidential Candidate
“I consider Kevin Barrett the top analyst for false flags.” – Robert David Steele, former CIA covert operations specialist and pioneer of the Open Source Intelligence (OS-INT) movement

Blows Apart the False Government Narrative on a False Flag Event Intended to Advance Gun Control & Keep the Fear Going…More
Author, Chuck Frank
The sovereign states of the West are no more and States Rights are gone. They have been lost to a conniving and corrupt federal bureaucracy that is intent upon establishing their own land baron footprint through a maze of un-constitutional and environmental legalism that is meant to isolate western lands for the purpose of controlling people, water, precious minerals, oil and wood products.
And while livelihoods are destroyed, thriving communities become ghost towns and families relocate for the sake of their own survival. But, let’s not forget, it is being done by design, compliments of Washington D.C. which now lords their authority over the western states without listening to the voice of the people. Federal agency “hearings” are but superficial and are a staged formality that is only meant as a sideshow.
Now, let’s just look on the map at the State of Nevada which is right next to California and see how much “sovereignty” is left. The Bundy family and the rest of the other Nevadians know the score. It’s the same game plan that mother Russia and the Soviet Union used on the Ukraine in 1933 when 7 million men, women and children lost their livelihoods and were forced into starvation and died under the tyrannical rule of Joseph Stalin.

Whistleblowers is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblowers Summit July 27-29, 2016 in Washington D.C.
Tonight’s guest is Marcel Reid, co-founder of the Whistleblowers Summit which just concluded their annual meeting on July 29, 2016 in Washington D.C..
The three day summit included speakers with first hand experience with the waste, fraud and abuse that occurs everyday in federal agencies and organizations. Having faced intimidation, threats and harassment as a result of blowing the whistle on these activities, many of these individuals have had their lives destroyed simply for doing their duty and reporting what they had observed.
The summit serves to give a voice to those who did the right thing but now face the grwoing threat of retaliation for doing so. Please join us as Ms. Reid reviews this years summit.
Among them, Assemblywoman Catharine Baker has requested an audit of the body that investigates judicial misconduct, the Commission on Judicial Performance.
The state created the Commission on Judicial Performance in 1960 as an independent agency responsible for investigating complaints against the state’s 2,175 active judges. It’s mandated to protect the public against “incompetency, misconduct or nonperformance on the bench.”
However, as the Stanford case illustrates, the public has access to little information on how the commission conducts its investigations.
The Stanford case became a national controversy when Judge Aaron Persky sentenced former student Brock Turner to six months in prison after a jury found him guilty of three sexual assault charges. Turner faced a possible 14 years in prison, but Persky said a longer sentence would have a severe impact on the former Stanford swimmer.
