THE SCAM OF THE CENTURY

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

While various protests are still happening during the 4th of July weekend, Ben Carson calls BLM which is also connected to Antifa, a Marxist organization which confirms what other persons inside the organization have already shared.

One of their main leaders of Antifa, a young girl back in 2017 also confirmed that Marxism was their playbook  in a video.  And why is this important?  It is because the organization is being funded and controlled by certain major players in the background who’s intent is to use BLM to destroy America and ultimately shred the U.S. Constitution, which is the very document that stands for freedom and equality.  Why would protestors buy into this?  It is simply because they have been deceived by a few corporate high rollers in high places that stand to make even more billions of dollars in the end.  And if America becomes too dangerous to live in, these multimillionaires and billionaire, far left leaning individual, have many other safe residences in other parts of the world that they can fly to and where they can  live happily ever after spend into their fortunes and dipping into their offshore bank accounts.  This fact was all written in the book, The Rich and the Super Rich as far back as 1969.

Not only are these violent protests unconstitutional, they are anti-American in the sense that they come with a rouge blueprint that was used in the Soviet Union after the first Communists took over during the reign of Lenin.  Comparing the Russian revolution to Antifa and other activists would be correct.  The same tactics are now being used to destroy monuments, history and law and order.  Yet, if law and order is destroyed then the anarchists and anti-Christs will extend their rebellious secular and immoral culture to the 3rd degree, in order to erect their own tyrannical state and elevate their chosen dictator elite in the likes of Stalin.  Yet, once their dictatorship is erected, what will be left of the U.S. economy if the industrial output comes to a standstil?  A good many people may starve and may sadly join the ranks of the homeless?  Comparatively, counter culture activists such as the late Che Guevara, years ago became a symbol of liberation in a poverty stricken Bolivia and the country of Argentina through violence and civil unrest.

Yet, was Russia any better after their revolution?  Show me.  There were bread lines and very little money that went to the lower and middle classes.  In fact during the reign of Stalin, the Ukraine harvests were used for the Communist elites in Moscow and others who were “party members”, all the while, an estimated 3.9 million Ukraine’s starved to death because they could not keep up with the collective allotments required by Moscow. Favored government workers which also included aerospace engineers and others were well paid for their talents and services,  and any real wealth at the top never trickled down to the  lesser strata of the Russian society.  Thus, even after the fall of the Berlin Wall and Russia’s loss of the Balkan states which were directly East of Germany, “classic” Marxism, as always, showed no prosperity nor mercy.

In closing, one can see that America is now under attack by those same kinds of merciless people who have those same kinds of outdated Marxist
theories that lead to the poverty of 2/3 of the people.  China is one  present example to where there never were intentions to redistribute the wealth and the top 1/3 always end up with the cream at the top.  China’s sky rise, stack n’ pack apartment buildings are but glorified prisons for the labor camp slaves.  It is a sorry set of circumstances for these poor people who want to be free.

History repeats itself and my estimate is that, in America, the lower 1/3 of society looks for a government that will give them entitlements and free stuff while the middle 1/3 working class pays for a good percentage of it.  As for the  1/3 at the top, they skate right on by in the ice arena in an attempt to win themselves an Olympic Medal with a triple axle that requires three and a half perfect turns.  Welcome to the Ice Age and shall we say goodbye to Climate Change while we are at it.  Why not?

THE GREAT CHARADE

Let’s begin by saying this.  When it comes to civil unrest, certainly, there is no question that for a very long time there have been many injustices  happening in America and for at least a century and even longer.  We are not just talking about social and economic injustices among African Americans, but also there have been injustices among the Mexicans, Orientals, Indians, and a host of other nationalities that  have all had their share of major rip offs, trials and countless setbacks. In spite of certain advantages that have been given to these groups for many years, such as upward mobility and college opportunities, a culture of unthankfulness also exists among certain groups of people who still want to take the law into their own hands.

While states and the federal government agencies most often tend to have the upper hand with thousands of laws along with fines and jail time, sadly, law enforcement seems to be quite immune from criminal conduct a lot of the time.  And apart from violence and theft by the common people which I do not approve of, many members of government are also guilty of outrageous actions themselves, but then generally they get away with these actions regularly which are on the same level as crime or even treason. However, that in itself, doesn’t give the right to groups such as Antifa and others a license to burn our cities and take unlawfulness to an anarchical level.  Both sides need to sit down and and talk and come and reason together before our entire country bites the dust. Law enforcement and protestors need a new blueprint for living in a society that was once a much safer and kinder country. 

Be assured, America is also being driven by hate and various far left groups that are meant to topple the country and rebuild it.  And yes, this is a dark agenda that will will surely cost the very freedom that was fought for from the very beginning in 1776.  Although, no country is perfect and I do not blame people if they are discontent with their lives because of Covid-19 and the present police state of affairs, yet if certain groups of people are being paid to protest and light our cities on fire, then it is no longer a question of defunding the police. It is now only a question of how might major change be made without violence and murders from the radical gangs and the far left which is no better than the rogue police who can use military grade equipment among the protestors that was brought in during the Obama administration.  This even included shoulder-held grenade launchers and other murderous instruments which may be used by SWAT teams or members of the National Guard.  And yes, Black Lives matter, but then why is the mainstream media not questioning a dark rouge government agenda which was birthed before President Trump took office?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A dark cloud is covering the the country of America.  How has this happened?  There are careful choices that one must make in this day and age when it comes to a peaceful co-existence.  In order to attain this, a person must desire to make a better world with good intentions that show an unselfish love that goes beyond traditional norms and government regulations.  We are not talking about the “greater good or the greater whole” which is a carefully designed phrase that governments use for their own benefit, in order to group all people under one controllable umbrella which, in the end, lacks freedom and instills a form of control and tyranny.  There are examples today in many governments, including America where this is done.

An analysis of the present facts show that civil unrest which is meant to change or destroy either a government, innocent people, or cities by fire, is no different that a corrupt government that has an overreach that is beyond reason and aims to use its own power in illegal and devious ways by using fines, FEMA camps, high taxes, bribes, kickbacks and many other  avenues to enrich certain individuals within government circles for their own benefit.  Call it the deep state if you wish and its been happening for decades.  It is all documented in books that have been written which publishers were afraid to publish for they feared for themselves and their families.  Wikileaks published troves of criminal behavior in high places and yes, the information may still be out there.

So where do we go from here?  There is a great divide.  For America, anarchy or revolution is not the solution because  when the dust finally settles in a revolt, America and its people will experience a vast wasteland with no EBT cards, no monthly government checks, no food or gas, no electricity, and no tomorrow.  It will be as if another fire went through Paradise but will the next one be all of the major cities?  Let it be known, our two party system will not save America and the people for the nation is now too divided.

Friends, I cannot express enough that there are millions of precious families and other Americans who are now on the razors edge and the choices that need to be made today need to be totally unselfish and aligned with love for one another to where all the people will come and reason together.

In his own and perfect way, Martin Luther King did just that.  Yes, we do have some parts of a great blueprint to follow; whether it be the late Martin Luther King or other great statesmen and military heroes who died for an idea that is unique to America.  It is called freedom with one nation under God, and liberty and justice for all.  Will the masses once again embrace these heart felt tenets which have been commonly held by the people, black or white, while many of them made great sacrifices for their brothers and sisters through the centuries.  Let that not be in vain.

But for those of you who have been standing on the sidelines and watching the action, there is a great call for you as well to return and embrace
the very essence of what made America once a country that was like no other.  And what was it?  Light of the world, shine on me, love is the
answer.

American Apocalypse: The Government’s Plot to Destabilize the Nation Is Working

Leave a comment

The Rutherford Institute

By John W. Whitehead
August 21, 2019

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out … without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.” — H. L. MenckenThe U.S. government is working hard to destabilize the nation.

No, this is not another conspiracy theory.

Although it is certainly not far-fetched to suggest that the government might be engaged in nefarious activities that run counter to the best interests of the American people, doing so will likely brand me a domestic terrorist under the FBI’s new classification system.

Observe for yourself what is happening right before our eyes.

Domestic terrorism fueled by government entrapment schemes. Civil unrest stoked to dangerous levels by polarizing political rhetoric. A growing intolerance for dissent that challenges the government’s power grabs. Police brutality tacitly encouraged by the executive branch, conveniently overlooked by the legislatures, and granted qualified immunity by the courts. A weakening economy exacerbated by government schemes that favor none but a select few. An overt embrace of domestic surveillance tactics if Congress goes along with the Trump Administration’s request to permanently re-authorize the NSA’s de-activated call records program. Heightened foreign tensions and blowback due to the military industrial complex’s profit-driven quest to police and occupy the globe.

The seeds of chaos are being sown, and it’s the U.S. government that will reap the harvest.

Mark my words, there’s trouble brewing.

Better yet, take a look at “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” a Pentagon training video created by the Army for U.S. Special Operations Command.

The training video is only five minutes long, but it says a lot about the government’s mindset, the way its views the citizenry, and the so-called “problems” that the government must be prepared to address in the near future through the use of martial law.

Even more troubling, however, is what this military video doesn’t say about the Constitution, about the rights of the citizenry, and about the dangers of locking down the nation and using the military to address political and social problems.

The training video anticipates that all hell will break loose by 2030—that’s barely ten short years away—but the future is here ahead of schedule.

How a "Social Contract" is supposed to work.

The riveting 345 page Government Accounting Office bestseller is hot off the presses!

For those of us who wonder what S510 was really for in the first place, don’t worry – there is no mention of “harmonizing” the entire food system under one “super-stellar ultra-powerful” (SSUP) governmental organization to starve the little people into submission – the proposal presented is just to save money!

According to Representative Rosa De Lauro from Connecticut:

“… the study provides additional evidence for the need to consolidate food safety oversight into one independent agency.
“I have introduced legislation that would establish such an agency since 1999 and believe that this is a critical step toward preventing foodborne illnesses and protecting public health,”

Plan B

 

In case the bailout doesn’t work…

The US has a Plan B.

If it’s not possible to paper over the vast multi-trillion dollar looting that took place during the changing of the guard (Bush to Obama), then the US will be ready with an iron fist for its own people.

Battle hardened troops are in place in the US being trained to “deal” with disgruntled Americans – in a “non-lethal” way of course.

 

The new mission for the US military:

Dealing with civil unrest and crowd control in the US.

A battle-hardened infantry unit is already trained and ready to go.

They hit the ground last October.

What a full blown financial collapse looks like… Brasscheck TV/video

Leave a comment

Argentina

Out of control foreign debt..enriched bankers and big business…made it easy to loot the country…and turned a rich country into a poor, one wiping out its middle class in the process.

Sound familiar?

Here’s what a full blown financial collapse looks like.

This may explain why Bush has ordered an active unit of combat troops to be stationed inside the US to serve as an “‘on call’ federal response in times of emergency,” specifically for use in case of “civil unrest” and for “crowd control.”

This is a first in American history.

The unit chosen for this task is the Army’s Third Infantry Division’s First Brigade Combat Team which has spent thirty-five of the last sixty months in Iraq.

They’re here now and training for “domestic operations.”

Bush Illegally Turns Army Inwards

What would you do if you learned that President Bush was preparing – in violation of federal law – to use the U.S. military to maintain order within our borders?  I hope you would at least take one minute to help us raise awareness about the situation.

For more than 200 years, federal laws have protected the American people against the use of military forces on our own soil.  Strengthened in 1878 by the Posse Comitatus Act, these laws have guaranteed that the federal government could not use the military for domestic law enforcement purposes.*  

Without such protection, the federal government could use the might of our army to violate state and individual rights.  Moreover, minor incursions by the military into domestic law enforcement activity could lay the foundation for the imposition of martial law at a moment’s notice.  This is one slippery slope we don’t want to start sliding down.

That is why we should all be deeply disturbed by the news that President Bush has assigned the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team to be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army component of Northern Command (NorthCom).  According to an article in Army Times, the soldiers could be called upon for a variety of tasks, including quelling “civil unrest.”  They are apparently engaged in training with shields and batons, beanbag bullets, and Tasers.

We need to raise awareness about this threat to our liberty immediately.  The American Freedom Campaign believes the best method available at the moment is to send an email to the moderators of the next two presidential debates, urging them to ask the candidates whether they would fully enforce the Posse Comitatus Act.

The US Is On The Verge Of Utter Financial Collapse And Martial Law

William Cormier has written another of his articles meant to wake us up from our slumber.  Middle class America is being systematically killed off with corporate greed, corrupt politicians and parasites of all kinds. 

US Is On The Verge Of Utter Financial Collapse And Martial Law

by William Cormier                                http://www.opednews.com

Excerpted from the article:
“Lobbyists are nothing more than legally sanctioned con artists and a system where bribing America’s Congress has become legal and against the interests of the general public; to bring accountability back to government and stop the bribing of our Congress, we need sweeping legislation that will stop this form of bribery – but don’t expect it soon, as Congress will be extremely reluctant to kill the goose that is laying golden eggs into the campaign coffers and hidden bank accounts of those who vote for money rather than patriotism. If there were any justice left in our nation, there’s little doubt that a huge segment of our Congress could be indicted for bribery and actions that I believe amount to treason. Yes, the wording of this particular Op-Ed is harsh, but with Bush essentially “green lighting” an attack on Iran by Israel, it’s vital that the public take action and impeach Bush and Cheney before they are allowed to finish-off their destruction of America!”

 

A secret meeting of Congress discusses immanent martial law.

Included in the article is this reference on the recent closed door session of congress:…………………………….

B.A. Brooks
The United American Freedom Foundation
March 13, 2008

On March 13th 2008 there was a secret closed door meeting of The United States House Of Representatives in Washington. In the history of The United States this is only the fourth time a secret meeting was held by the house. Even though Representatives are sworn to secrecy by House Rules XVII, some of the members were so shocked, horrified, furious, and concerned about the future of America by what was revealed to them inside the secret meeting, that they have started to leak this secret information to independent news agencies around the world. The mass media said almost nothing about the secret meeting of the House, mentioning only one of the items being discussed. (The new surveillance techniques that are going to be used by the U.S. Government to watch all American citizens). The story was first released in a newspaper out of Brisbane, Australia revealing the contents of the secret U.S. Government meeting and plans for America including all of it’s citizens. Shortly there after, David J. Meyer from Last Trumpet Ministries found it and made it more available for the world to see.

Here is what was revealed:

* The imminent collapse of the U.S. Economy to occur sometime in late 2008


* The imminent collapse of the U.S. Government finances sometime in mid 2009


* The possibility of Civil War inside the United States as a result of the collapse


* The advance round-ups of “insurgent U.S. Citizens” likely to move against the government


* The detention of those rounded up at The REX 84 Camps constructed throughout the United States


* The possibility of public retaliation against members of Congress for the collapses


* The location of safe facilities for members of Congress and their families to reside during massive civil unrest
* The necessary and unavoidable merger of The U.S. with Canada and Mexico establishing The North American Union
* The issuance of a new currency called the AMERO for all three nations as an economic solution.

“Except for a few hundred thousand U.S. Patriots, most Americans have no clue what has really been going on within The United States over the past 100 years, and the sad thing is that most do not want to know the truth. The further you look into the rabbit hole, the deeper it gets. Go to any currency conversion site and convert U.S. dollars to Euros so you can see for yourself the massive decline of the dollar. Look at how much money is and has been spent on the Iraq War to date, ($12 billion per month). Look at our currency and when it stopped being backed by gold. MUCH MORE

Food Shortages: the Perfect Enabler

3 Comments

by: Marti Oakley (C) copyright 2010 All Rights Reserved

How could it happen?  Here in the US, in the greatest agricultural country ever to have existed…..and we are facing a food shortage.  Already here in Minnesota, large food chains are limiting the number of bags of rice, flour and sugar.  Stranger even still, as Minnesota is the #1 sugar beet grower in the nation.  We are an agricultural based state, producing not only sugar beets, but corn, wheat, oats, soybeans, dairy and so many other foods, a food shortage cannot seem possible.

Corn prices have risen 60% this year and I would not find that objectionable if the increase was due to food supplies.  Instead, we are burning food supplies (corn) to make biofuel in the belief this will decrease our consumption of foreign oil.  Somehow, driving on an empty stomach doesn’t appeal to me much.  At what point will we decide that access to food is far more important to us than cranking up these gas guzzling vehicles? And when will we understand that burning nearly a gallon of oil to produce a gallon of ethanol is not only inefficient, but produces 20% less usable energy is a carefully constructed recipe for disaster?

The sudden acceptance in the last few years (and that is “sudden” as slowly as our government moves when it doesn’t want something to happen) of fuel produced from corn should have made us all put on the brakes.  After decades of fighting any chances of developing alternative fuels and intentionally making alternative energy production an impossibility, the government is now on board and fully supporting the research and development of biofuel.  Now why would that be?

As always with those who operate behind the curtain, nothing happens until it is opportune to do so.  Apparently the time has come to bring the hammer down.  What we will face in the next few years will be so devastating to us as a society, nothing will ever be the same.  The created food crisis will only be the tip of the iceberg, but, it is this crisis that will be the catalyst for plans made in advance for us, and whether or not we survive.  Survival here should not be defined in limited terms.  It should be an inclusive term, meaning everything we know, life as we have known it and whether we continue to live will be subject to our ability and determination.  Those who comply with the coming changes will eat, those who don’t won’t.

Aside from the chemtrails appearing all over the world, but most especially here in the US….where a vast amount of food is produced ….. polymers, bacterium, heavy metals, barium and other pollutants and irritants are sprayed into our skies over vast areas.  A sure sign that chemtrails are at work are the stunted crops, the lack of bees for pollination, and large numbers of birds of all sizes just dropping from the skies like stones having died in flight.  Water testing after chemtrails are spotted shows a spike in barium among other things, and the resulting fish kills evidenced by dead fish washing ashore for miles is attributed to the sudden rise in some unknown bacteria appearing in the water.  Keep in mind that before any of these toxic concoctions reach the ground or water supplies…..we breathe them in.

Food is the greatest enabler of control.  Preventing its production either by agreements such as NAFTA and CAFTA among others, or by intentionally contaminating the food supply limits the amount of food available.  If the wars didn’t put us in the street fighting the government, if the encouraged mass migration of illegal immigrants into the country hasn’t caused civil unrest, if the gross and blatant corruption of our government and the administrations obvious contempt for the people of the United States did not bring us to our feet in protest, then surely, cutting off our food supply will.  Hungry people are angry people.

What our government wants to have happen more than any other thing is for us to rise up in civil disobedience and are prepared to utilize any mechanism, even food, to cause that to happen.

What the wars and corruption, the mass illegal immigration couldn’t bring about, a food shortage will.  In anticipation of this preconceived plan to enable martial law, to rid the elite of the nuisance of government controlled by the governed, and to solidify the North American Union and the Security & Prosperity Partnership as the forerunners to one world government, we will see our food supply dwindle to almost nothing recognizable.  THAT will make us take to the streets in protest.  That will allow the administration to declare a national emergency, implement martial law and we will see Canadian troops on our streets to control us.

The food shortage that has been carefully planned is strategic as well.  Already around the world less fortunate populations are unable to afford what little food is available and are beginning to fight back.  And this is only the beginning.  In the great created food crisis millions will suffer and die as “useless eaters” are purged from the earth.  Starvation will do what AIDS, SARS, the phony Bird Flu and other attempts at mass depopulation haven’t accomplished.  It will wipe out huge segments of the worlds populations and enable the conversion of the US, Canada and other advanced nations into states of despair.  And it will facilitate the planned overthrow of our government in favor of total fascism by a group of global elitists who believe we are all expendable.

They needed a catalyst.  They needed a reason to justify what they are about to do to us.  And all of what is coming will be presented to us as the only way out……and many of us will willingly comply with the program.

Losing Faith in The Democrats

Leave a comment

 Article appears in OpEd News March 10, 2008   

Like many of you, I have a profound sense of betrayal regarding the Democrat’s.  We fought hard to put them in the majority in both houses, most of us believing that once there, the Patriot Act, The Security Enhancement Act, The Military Commissions Act, The John Warner Defense Authorization Act and a host of other anti-American legislation would be reversed.  We really believed that the Democrats would save the day.  We were fools.

Not only have none of these un-constitutional or civil rights violating bills been reversed, we can’t even get the Democratic leadership to acknowledge them; they won’t even talk about them. 

Nancy Pelosi set the stage for what was to come, for what we should expect from the new Democratic congress when she announced that “Impeachment is off the table” right after being sworn in as speaker of the house.  Pelosi made this statement knowing full well that the new position she just assumed was due in large part to the belief by voters that impeachment would begin almost immediately.  And it should have.

Henry Reid, who became Senate majority leader, went from his persona as “Givem’ Hell Harry”, to one of docile acquiescence to the Bush regime.  Now, in lockstep with the Bush White House, he and Pelosi have supported many of the demands from Bush.  Neither of them seems capable or able to re-establish congress as a recognizable branch of government. 

Although bloggers who seem to be more informed and educated than congress,  and internet news services have reported continuously on the illegality of Executive Orders that have overrun the law, or on Presidential Directives that give the president dictatorial powers, the Democrats have remained silent.  They appear to know nothing.  Presidential signing statements which order departments and agencies to not abide by the new law being signed…….just seem to fade into nothing. 

The REAL ID act which was attached to another bill under the “and for other purposes” enacting clause, is intended to result in massive civil unrest come May.  Even with the threats of retaliation from Homeland Security if states do not comply with this unfunded and unconstitutional mandate, the Democrats just can’t seem to bring themselves to repeal this act, much less to debate it.  Not one of them seems to be aware that HSD is strictly prohibited in their enacting charter from ever establishing a national ID of any kind, including designating it as a “domestic passport”. 

What about those retaliatory threats from HSD?  Did those just fly under the radar of congress?  Since when does a government agency threaten the citizens with retaliation?  Did any one bother to ask just what that would consist of?  Did anyone inside the golden walls of congress, inside that bastion of political drama stop for one minute and tell Chertof he is out of line?  No….they didn’t.  Again, we were greeted with absolute silence.

Maybe none of this would bother me so much if I wasn’t such a CSPAN junkie.  Watching the house and senate very nearly every day that they are in session, I am struck by the absolute wasting of time spent on congratulating each other on what a fine and distinguished person the other is.  Then there are the declarations of friendship across the isle.  Possibly true…..but who cares? 

While Iraq falls into a pile of rubble, while our military puts its collective life on the line in this war of greed for oil…..we have house members taking up valuable minutes (that’s about all they get, which effectively puts a cap on real debate) trying to have some home state notable’s birthday recognized.  We have “debates” on whether or not flag burning is a threat to national security.  We take votes on whether the Boxer Rebellion was significant.  We pass non-binding, nonsensical resolutions against the war.  And then, everyone disappears!  They are all in committee’s somewhere discussing important issues, supposedly.  In the end, absolutely nothing about anything is done of any relevance.  And when the house or senate doesn’t want you to hear their voting, they shut the mike’s off and you are treated to classical music. 

After six years of destruction under Republican rule our Republic is barely recognizable.  The changes we so desperately hoped for with a change in leadership are not going to happen.  We are still being assailed by the illogical fallacies promoted by the Bush fascists.  Too many of us still believe that giving up our liberty will somehow magically prevent acts of terrorism and even more of us cannot grasp the idea that sending our military to war to fight for freedom (a lie) is negated by our willingness to forfeit freedom at home. 

In the end, it may be time for a third political party to form; one not afraid to rock the boat, to shake up the status quo.  We need individuals who not only know what the problems are but who are willing to speak about them and fight to repeal these insidious attempts to dismantle our country. 

The day of the Republicans is over.  Even they know it.  At this point in time 21 have resigned from cabinet positions or have resigned or are not seeking re-election in the house or senate.  Career politicians jumping ship and running like the rats they are.  But we have to ask ourselves if what we are left with after this bailing out by Republicans is any more beneficial to us than if they stayed?  Quite frankly, as things stand now, I would say, no.
