THE RISING INFERNO

Leave a comment

Author, Chuck Frank

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

As of August 19, 2020 there were 367 wildfires burning in California sparked by massive rounds of lightening strikes.  One of the main areas of the state which are affected and still burning is the Sierra Nevada Mountain range that begins in the foothills and lies on a long strip that is on the East side of the State of California and then rises in elevation to 7,365 feet at Echo Summit on the way to Lake Tahoe and then finally  drifts over into the State of Nevada.  The Sierra Nevada Mountain range is a truly a marvel to see through all seasons while Lake Tahoe is the blue diamond of the world.

Through my years as a child and also a teen I spent many weeks fishing and swimming in these mountains and took more than one hike into Desolation Wilderness, a granite rock filled dream in an area filled with various lakes and steams that can only be seen by airplane or by hiking in.

After spending many years in these mountains since I was 8 years old, I never saw one major wildfire from 1950 on.  But then  fires began sweeping across America in the latter 80’s beginning with the Yellowstone Fire in 1988.  While not a victim of climate change, the Yellowstone fire was birthed out of a new Forest Service policy billed as “experimental environmentalism” that allowed forest fires to burn which were started by lighting.  With that, President Reagan abruptly canceled the policy yet many years later the Clinton administration picked it up again and began scaling back all of the logging in California and closed down the entrances to logging roads while also backfilling many of them with backhoes in order to “protect” the spotted owl and finally 1000 other species. Thus, not climate change but the inability to fight fires because of no access became the nightmare that has followed we the people ever since.  With fires being a major factor in various locations of the West and also the Sierras, the American people are still not out of the woods when it comes to thinning the overgrown forests which will take decades to fix and protect from wildfires.  Essentially, these infernos in California and other states were created though decades of forestry mismanagement that relied on theories while catering to environmental organizations such as the Sierra Club and many others.

The question may arise…why has it taken so long to fix those federal and state agencies that are responsible for so many wildfires every year that could have been prevented through simple management practices such as bringing in logging contractors to thin the second growth forests.   It is because of past government corruption that was investigated years ago by a person that shared this true story.  His dad was asked to investigate the many areas of forestry mismanagement in the State of California.  He began at the very bottom and worked his way up to the top.  He found corruption everywhere and when he finally got to the California State legislature and the Governor he even found corruption there as well and was asked to then stop investigating.  Why was he asked to stop?  It is obvious.  Was there big lobby money going to various persons in the legislature who were connected in some way to either environmentalist organizations but also other players who fly under the radar?

I cannot believe that the smoke filled West which I am breathing at this very moment is still the result of Climate Change when all of the evidence points to forestry service corruption, negligence,  decades of improper leadership and politics, but all the while, millions of acres burn regularly and hundreds of millions of dollars are extracted from taxpayers for something that could have been prevented.

Misinformation is alive and well in the late great State of California and other parts of the lost West.

The Babylon BEE: ‘We Are Not The Enemy Of The People,’ Say Press Who Intentionally Deceive The People To Protect The Political Elite

Leave a comment

 

NEW YORK, NY—Various news outlets reminded the American people Tuesday that they are not their enemy, despite intentionally deceiving the people in order to protect the political elite.

The media who literally allowed the people to be preyed upon by the rich and powerful rather than run information that might harm their elite buddies assured the people they are on our side.

“We are not the enemy of the people,” said a spokesperson for ABC News, waving his hands in the air as though trying to perform some kind of Jedi mind trick. “Yes, I know it may seem that way when we cover up damaging information to protect the rich and powerful, but trust us when we say we know better than you.”

“We are your friends,” he added in a hypnotic voice while swinging a stopwatch back and forth. “Say it with me: we are your friends. Yes, yes, gooooood.”

CNN’s Brian Stelter agreed, saying that though he calls out the president for lying all the time, it’s different when the press does it. “Our lying is democratic lying,” Stelter said. “It’s for your own good.”

“Also, Epstein definitely killed himself, and we don’t have any other information on that.”

A South Carolina lawmaker is proposing the most sweeping changes in two decades to the state’s magistrate system after an investigation by The Post and Courier and ProPublica exposed how politics and flawed oversight provided fertile ground for incompetence and corruption on the bench.

The legislation filed Wednesday by Sen. Tom Davis, a Beaufort Republican, would bolster the required legal training for magistrates who aren’t lawyers, increase protections for the many criminal defendants who appear before them and add a layer of scrutiny to magistrate appointments — posts that often go to politically connected insiders.

As the news organizations reported last month, South Carolina’s roughly 320 magistrates handle hundreds of thousands of cases each year, but most have never practiced law in their life; to qualify for nomination to the lower courts, applicants need only to earn an undergraduate degree and pass basic competency exams. As a result, these little-watched judges can sentence someone to jail for months or saddle them with thousands of dollars in fines, but have less required training than the state’s barbers or masseuses.  READ MORE HERE

Circuses struggling to find new clowns as top prospects continue to go into politics

Daily Squat

Dumping a Steaming Pile of News on You Daily

Circuses are struggling to fill clown positions as top prospects are often heading into politics instead, it’s emerged.

The number of circus clowns has shrunk to a dangerously low level – and politics is being blamed for snatching up all the best prospects.

‘We used to have half a dozen clowns in our circus. Now we have just one because the rest have retired or gone into politics. And young prospects aren’t even considering a career in the circus any more,’ said Richard Majesty, a worried ringmaster.

‘You just have to look at the current political figures to see where they’ve snatched talent from us. Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Jeremy Corbyn all would have made excellent clowns. Even across the pond, they have Donald Trump,’ Majesty sighed.

Circuses have found they just can’t compete with the money and attention that surrounds politics. Instead, a group of circuses are considering joining forces to become their own political party.

‘Although I doubt anyone will notice anything different about us,’ said Richard.

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

By Michael Wolff

Little Brown Book Group (2018)

Book Review

The most remarkable aspect of this book is its blow-by-blow account of Team Trump – from his nomination in July 2016 to Steve Bannon’s firing in August 2017. Unlike prior presidential administrations, which are extremely guarded about their inner workings, Trump’s White House offered the media virtually unfettered access during his first nine months. According to Wolff this occurred for four main reasons: 1) Trump’s impulsive daily tweets 2) the constant “weaponized” leaks from warring Trump staffers* 3) Trump’s nightly rambling calls to wealthy supporters** and 4) his willingness to allow more public access to the Oval Office than any previous president.

While Wolff cite sources for his factual statements and quotes, the book has been carefully fact checked, in addition to being reviewed by two libel attorneys.***

As a psychiatrist, what I found most interesting about Fire and Fury is the insight it reveals into Trump’s psychological functioning. The current President is described by nearly everyone who has worked with him as extremely childlike, guileless, impulsive, undisciplined, incapable of following a game plan and impossible to communicate with. He trusts no one.

One of the few direct quotes in the book is from his former scheduler Katie Walsh: “It’s like trying to figure out what a child wants.”

My favorite quote, though, comes from Trump himself during a staff discussion about repealing Obamacare: “Why can’t Medicare simply cover everyone?”

Toning down Trump’s impulsiveness has been virtually impossible, though some staffers have been able to influence his behavior by winding him up.

Trump categorically refuses to read written briefings or watch PowerPoint presentations. He also refuses to listen to long verbal briefings and tends not to follow scripted statements. He always prefers to be the one talking, typically coming out with long rambling statements in which he frequently repeats himself.

Wolff’s introduction also confirms what many analysts have surmised: Trump didn’t intend to win the Presidency. His original plan was to use the media exposure to launch his own TV network. In fact, Trump refused to invest any of his own money in the campaign (although he loaned them $10 million).


*Prior to Bannon’s departure in August 2017, there was no White House chain of command and no clearly defined duties for any of its staff. Four discrete factions – Bannon, Jared Kushner/Ivana Trump (Bannon called them Jarvanka) nominal Chief of staff Reince Priebus and Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway were at continual war with one another in controlling Team Trump. According to many sources, Trump essentially served as his own chief of staff and press secretary, in that he phone reporters, dictated quotes and personally reviewed all press releases.

**The recipients of these calls (concerning unfavorable media and Trump’s “incompetent” staff) were so alarmed by them that they often felt compelled to pass on their content to White House staff and/or reporters.

***The Trump family is notoriously litigious, and Wolff and his publisher must be able to document the book’s assertions in a libel suit.

 

Get Your Head Out Of Your False Left vs. Right Paradigm

OPINION:

I cannot believe, after successive presidency’s reflecting both supposed political ideologies and party’s, that anyone is still buying into the right vs. left, Republican vs. Democrat, liberal vs. conservative, BS. And it is BS.

Playing on, at times, extreme religious beliefs, or manufactured propaganda meant to frighten you in to accepting another war of aggression, or professed moral righteousness, we are encouraged to vote for one party or the other. Along with the tossing about of the words socialism and communism and the chronic hysteria that accompanies those words, many of us are convinced that our votes really matter or that things will actually change as a result. Actually, they do change…they always get worse. Makes no difference which wing of the this one party system you vote for.

Combining church and state?

We have a 1st amendment prohibiting that and for good reason.

Let me say that the lunacy emanating from churches in today’s world is enough to make a rational, reasonable man’s head explode. When I see blanket statements such as “Democrats hate Conservatives and Christians”…Really?? Really America? How many of you actually believe that? Or how about, “conservatives hate Democrats and they are satanists?” Are you really that easily manipulated and stupid? But if you need one, the barrage of idiotic religious drivel from either side of this combination of church and state, or, the lack thereof, is really obnoxious.

That’s Socialism! That’s Socialism!

First, let’s clear one thing up right off the bat! America is in no danger of becoming a socialist or communist nation. We are heading full steam ahead More

The Bush Family Dynasty and Prescott Bush’s Love Affair with Fascism

Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD – December 4, 2018 – (3400 words)

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

“Some of the Unmentionables in George H W Bush’s Legacy

I’m certain that many of us aware of the many omissions concerning the legacy of George H W Bush. I list some of them below:

1) Bush 41’s veto of the Civil Rights Act of 1990;

2) his nefarious actions while he was CIA chief in Gerald Ford’s administration;

3) his role in the US support of the uncountable South and Central American dictatorships during the Reagan administration;

4) the illegal invasion of Panama (Operation Just Cause!);

5) starting the un-provoked Persian Gulf War;”

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

(With attention to what has become known as “The Business Plot”, the “Plot Against FDR” or the “White House/Wall Street Putsch”) 

I was involved in pro-peace, anti-war, anti-US Imperialism efforts during the most hideous years of the Reagan/Bush administrations (from 1980 – 1992) that resulted in the deaths and sufferings of millions of innocent people in virtually every South and Central American nation you can think of.

As I remember the many innocent – often “disappeared” – war-refugees who suffered, starved and died at the hands of my war-profiteering national leaders, I am unable to shed any tears for the guilty ones, even if they are now dead or dying, for they were war-mongers that never apologized for their misdeeds. They were members beholden to Wall Street and War Street whose intentions made them responsible for brutal massacres, assassinations, torturing, mass killings, starvation and the impoverishment of millions of innocents that wanted to live in peace in their homeland that had been targeted for exploitation by my once-beloved homeland.

Senate To Be Replaced With Room Full Of Monkeys Throwing Feces

6 Comments

Editor’s note:  This is one of the best political humor pieces I have seen in years!  Please visit The Babylon Bee!  Links provided below.,

https://babylonbee.com/news/senate-to-be-replaced-with-room-full-of-monkeys-throwing-feces

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In an emergency, overnight referendum, the American people voted on Thursday to replace the United States Senate with a room full of monkeys throwing feces. The measure passed with 57% of the vote. 22% of voters thought the Senate should be replaced by barking seals, while 17% voted that the replacement should be the pit of venomous snakes from Indiana Jones. 3.97% voted that Senate members be replaced by screaming goats. “About 100 people” voted for the current Senators to keep their jobs, with this tiny voting bloc centered in Washington, D.C.

 

Highland Ape Rescue out of West Virginia will be teaming up with Cornwell Primate farms to supply hundreds of monkeys and apes to the Senate. The animals will be fed a nutritious mixture of foods that produce easily throwable feces. Protective glass will be put up around the Senate for camera crews to safely film, but anyone being interviewed by the new senators will have to sit in the middle of the poo-flinging octagon, coming under a heavy barrage of projectile excrement.

“It will be a huge improvement from how things were before,” said ape trainer, Marlena Henwick. “No more 10-12 hour hearings. With these monkeys, all the fecal projectiles will have been flung in under 30 minutes. One and done.”

The recently replaced senators will be placed on display at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. for families to park, attendees to observe and zoologists to study.

“Then the inner workings of the compass will finally produce the true direction that the people and this nation still longs for and ultimately needs to find.”

As of late there has been a lot of pointing the finger and talk in the mainstream news about “white supremacy.” What we have here is one more bone thrown out for the masses to chew on, all the while, politics becomes business as usual. American’s elected a black President for the first time in their history and riots did not happen. Why are there riots now? Did the previous administration and the mainstream news lay a foundation that was a political agenda which was meant to divide the nation and pit various races against one another for a purpose driven endgame?

White supremacy and its roots have been around for centuries but it is now part of the NWO establishment.. Some fifty or so years ago the establishment was only considered to be those who were pro business, stock market players and high rollers that lived in uptown gated white communities, and were suave country club golfers, drinkers and American flag wavers.

Duty to Warn

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

“When a candidate for public office faces the voters he does not face men of sense; he faces a mob of men whose chief distinguishing mark is the fact that they are quite incapable of weighing ideas, or even of comprehending any except for the most elemental ones. The whole thinking of such voters is done in terms of emotion…(and the) dominant emotion is dread of what they cannot understand. So confronted, the candidate must either bark with the pack or be lost…All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre – the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” H. L. Mencken – known as the “Sage of Baltimore”

“Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.” – Voltaire

NOTE: This column was written the day before the dreaded Election Day of 2016 and submitted for publication before any election results were announced. Because I had already done everything in my power over the past decades of my political activism to influence the vote of thinking folks, I intend to turn off the TV on election day and try not to pay any attention to any of the over-analyzed political commentary and election-season information overload until the morning after.

At this point I think – since it is too late in the season to take the day off and go fishing – that I might actually go – right after I vote – to some distracting daytime movie that my wife wouldn’t want to see anyway. Then, following my regular Tuesday night tennis match, I will come right home and go right to bed without getting myself all tied up in knots.

I realize that it is futile to try to change the political minds of folks who have already chosen to affiliate with anti-democratic folks who exhibit behaviors that are compatible with sociopaths, sexists, xenophobes, racists, homophobes, Islamophobes, anti-Semites, neo-fascists, pro-war/pro-violence Christian fundamentalists, aggressive militarists, climate change deniers, anti-science types and the varieties of demagogue-devotees who have already pledged their allegiance to certain candidates who refuse to be influenced by rational pro-democracy arguments.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ATHENA ROE ANNOUNCES HER RUN FOR COLORADO HOUSE DISTRICT 18

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO, JathebaANUARY 2, 2016 – Athena Roe of Colorado Springs, Colorado, President of the National Association for Probate Reform and Advocacy, Founder, The Har Company, L.L.C. Consulting Group, announced her run for Colorado House of Representatives, District 18 in El Paso County. Athena Roe is a native of Pueblo, Colorado and has lived in House District 18 for over eighteen years.

One of the things that attracted me in seeking this seat, aside from the need for transparency and accountability in our Courts,” adds Athena Roe, “is that ‘over the next twenty years,’ it is estimated that one hundred trillion dollars will pass by inheritance through probate courts” and the amount of this wealth will be “high jacked and diverted to unintended recipients.” It is not an exaggeration to say that every family has been or will be affected by this wide spread racket. Families are driven into poverty.

Athena knows this game well, as three quarters of her inheritance was diverted through Colorado’s Probate Court. What’s more, “you may believe that you are an intelligent person with a great education and happy family and that you will never be a victim of this racket.” The problem is, “high jacking is easily accomplished” and no one is absolutely safe. Rich and poor are “targeted victims.” I will make sure Colorado’s families are protected. I will make sure your family does not suffer the abuse that plagues our system.

The Nightmare Years

____________________________________________________

 

Such pseudo-patriotism can be easily generated by the telling of heroic war stories, the playing of rousing patriotic anthems, the application of constant and cunning propaganda, the total control of the mainstream media’s message by the ruling elites, and the support of (or silence from) the nation’s religious leadership Good Christian Germans and good Christian Americans are not much different in their susceptibility to brain-washing techniques and pledges of allegiance to the flag, whether Swastika or Stars and Stripes.

______________________________________________________________

I have in my library dozens of books that were written about the history of fascism and its politics, economics, religious affiliations and psychology that makes it succeed so often.

1476159_634395409937481_1193924902_nThat includes the varieties of fascism that were studied in Italy, Germany, Spain, Japan, Britain and America, among others. To my recollection, none of the lessons I learned from my books had been even mentioned during my high school education or even my college careers. I don’t recall hearing any of my teachers talk about American-style fascism. And none of my teachers led me to doubt the validity of the anti-democratic, pro-fascist and very unethical Monroe Doctrine, Manifest Destiny, Laissez Faire capitalism, the Dred Scott decision or any of the wartime atrocities that were so commonly perpetrated by American troops in any of its wars (ex: inventing water-boarding on innocent Filipinos and then massacring them during the Spanish-American War).

The “Nightmare Years” (in Germany): 1930 – 1940

I started on my path of trying to de-mystify fascism, ultra-right-wing conservatism and authoritarian nation-states after reading “into” William Shirer’s “the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich”. (I say “into” with no shame because I don’t know anybody who has actually read the entire 1500 pages of that seminal work.) Shirer was to later write a book titled “The Nightmare Years: 1930 – 1940” about his experiences as an American correspondent in Berlin during the run-up to WWII. (I was later to become interested in the dynamics of a nation’s authoritarian parenting styles, a reality that correlates nicely with a nation’s militarism, war-mongering, racism, fascism, and imperialism.)

At the beginning of the Nightmare Years (for Shirer) was the phenomenon of Horst Wessel and the song that he was said to have written (the “Horst Wessel Lied”). Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment, cunningly took an unknown Brown Shirt street fighter (and alleged pimp) and turned him into a martyred hero for the far right-wing extremist political party: the Nazis. (Robert Welch, Jr, the founder of the John Birch Society was to do the same thing for his hero John Birch exactly 30 years later – read on.)

Wessel was a member of the SA and the son of a conservative Protestant chaplain. He had been killed in 1930 by anti-fascist, pro-communist street fighters and then was memorialized by Goebbels. With a beautiful German folk tune accompanying the lyrics (and with the obligatory Hitler salute during the singing), the Horst Wessel song was sung by uber-patriotic Germans at Nazi rallies. Wessel’s song was more popular than the official Nazi anthem, “Deutschland Uber Alles”.

The lyrics of the song were quite pathetic but, because of the melodious tune, the song, especially when sung by a male chorus, easily aroused the patriotic fervor of rallying Nazis to more eagerly follow the psychopathic Hitler anywhere he desired. The song’s lyrics went like this:

” Combining health care with government invariably results in the individual’s interests versus the state’s interests scenario playing out. Guess who has historically won this battle? Once the “state” is paying for healthcare, the “state” determines what health care will be paid for-even what qualifies as meeting the definition of health care. After all, “public” resources are distributed by popular vote and that’s not good news for the sick minority. That the federal government is mandating the collection of virtually everyone’s health information and data should be of great concern to anyone who has followed any history of what government’s typically do with information. They desire this information simply because they intend to use it. To ration.”
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
A friend recently opined to me about his increasing frustration with those who are unable to distinguish between politics and religion, particularly those for whom politics is their religion. This describes statists of all stripes, I think. Folks either want to use the power of the state to abscond with the property of others in order to better complete “the Lord’s work,” or they justify the state’s trampling of individual rights in the name of “the greater good.” The fascist, Joseph Goebbels had the following to say:

“My party is my church and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel.” Or how about this one from Mr. Goebbels: “I am only the instrument that God uses to sing his song. I am only the vessel that nature smilingly fills with new wine.”

It is no mistake that Germany’s national anthem is entitled “Deutschland uber Alles.” The supremacy of the state and the individual’s role in feeding this parasitic institution are apologetically clear in the writings of men like Goebbels, while more subtle, but no less fascistic musings and thoughts surround us today.

Here is a quote from Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
“Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” Actually, that isn’t very subtle at all, is it?

Obama Pledges Billion Dollars to Islamic Terrorist Organization

The Magnified View

Posted by Yoda

“Jihad Is Our Path & Death in the Name of Allah Is Our Goal,” newly elected president of Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood Mohammed Morsi said in his election speech.

The U.S. supported Muslim Brotherhood is one of the most sinister organizations operating in the Middle East, the United States and around-the-world.

The concept of an Islamic Democracy is an oxymoron. Islamic law is absolutely incompatible with Democracy. It is a Theocratic system with Allah alone at its head. Allah’s law is interpreted by a ruling body of clerics. There is no room for a secular political system in which all people are treated as equals.

There are no adherents to the fanatic faith practicing with a small “m” (for Muslims) as Catholics and Protestants practice their faith with small c’s and small p’s or on a sliding scale.

Unlike other faiths, Islam is not just a religion but a political system as well. The state is intended to be inseparable from religious rule. Islamic law, or Sharia, is complete and not designed to coexist with or be subordinate to other legal systems.

Qur’an (4:141) “…And never will Allah grant to the unbelievers a way (to triumphs) over the believers.”

Despite that Morsi is threatening to “eliminate Israel” and attack the “Great Satan” (That would be the land of the free), President Obama is granting Egypt a billion and a half dollars for “military assistance”.

I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction,” wrote President Obama in his Audacity of Hope. His active support of the Muslim Brotherhood is a promise that he is keeping.

On May 3rd, 1994, then President Clinton signed Presidential Directive 25 (PDD-25).  This directive placed US military commanders under the jurisdiction of the United Nations if the UN was conducting an action of some kind, anywhere.  The actual text of the directive remains sealed and classified.

PDD25 was originally written as PDD-13.  The re-write of PPD-13 and conversion to PDD-25 was needed to exclude a disclaimer from General Colin Powell, the 1993 Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  This disclaimer made certain that US commanders would not have to comply with UN orders which were:

  • Outside the mandate of the mission or,
  • illegal under US law or,
  • militarily imprudent or unsound.

PDD-25 of course, removed these provisions.

#25 also makes no distinction as to where UN meddling might be taking place, and no provision was included to exclude any actions by the UN within the geographical United States.  What may keep the UN and its “peacekeeping forces” out of the US is that if they show up here, they will not get a glowing reception.  No one would be happy to see them and we would not greet them with flowers and garlands, nor would we cheer their arrival.  It is however, a distinct possibility that they would be greeted with massive amounts of fireworks.  And that appears to be a long-standing concern for those dedicated to disarming the world so that only they and their armies have weapons.  It makes overtaking one country after another so much easier if you are the only one who is armed.

The Raging State Of Paranoia Continues

Remember the days in the U.S., when it was generally considered rude to spy on your neighbor? Or when minding one’s own business used to be a kind of unspoken virtue? Well although ‘the times they are a changing’, that doesn’t necessarily mean that Americans as a people, would be best served to change along with them.

In the United States, before we are condemned by the State, we are routinely informed of the right we have to remain silent. But in case its become obscured somehow for an average Joe, when it comes to the ‘business’ of Homeland Security, one also has an inherent right to remain non-compliant to the state of paranoia running rampant in the U.S. Government, which has yet to enthrall the masses as it has our nation’s leaders.

Do ordinary U.S. citizens actually need to heed a public servant like ‘Janet Napolitano’, and function as an unpaid operative of their government? Must we really become estranged from or suspicious of one-another as a matter of daily routine? Is this “If you see something, say something” mentality and campaign out of Washington, all that fundamentally wise or necessary to begin with?

Well, as a result of my being an Internet news junkie, I am definitely seeing something nefarious-seeming and practically commonplace these days, which is being reported on just about anywhere there is an independent journalist keeping the American public informed. So perhaps, I had better ‘say something.’

One example of what I refer to, might surely be the recent revelation of The DHS (in concert with the U.S. Navy), reportedly awarding a California-based computer forensics company a hefty government contract to devise a way to crack the encryption methods of video game consoles such as Microsoft’s ‘X-Box 360′ or Nintendo’s’ Wii’. This, so that Washington bureaucrats can extract and collect the keystrokes or conversations of users of such game systems.

Yes, you have read me correctly. The U.S. government is spending your tax dollars developing expert methods to spy on Super Mario zealots. And aren’t we indeed, talking about children and teenagers here, for the most part?

If an American were to consummate such a thing with the constant stream of similarly outrageous, federally covert schemes in the making; such as those which CIA Director, David Petraeus, seemed to recently celebrate, which have the potential to monitor their activities through their respective televisions or dishwashers – they just may find themselves more frightened of governmental plots being contrived upon them than terrorists. Unconstitutional and detrimental, Military Industrial Complex tools and techniques in full bloom and plausibly operational mode of which our leadership seems bent on perfecting and implementing.

(NWR) – This article is the beginning of a series where I will point out some of the problems in modern political philosophy and shed light on some possible solutions that can help us reverse the ominous path that our species is walking.  In today’s selection we are going to discuss the brutal nature of republics and democracies, and consider how both are varying forms of slavery, which have clung to the human psyche as remnants from our mundane past.

If the primary goal within a society is to achieve happiness, safety, freedom and peace then we can surely say that there is not a place on earth where this has been accomplished.

Coincidentally, almost every chartable geographical area on the planet is micro managed by organizations who claim responsibility for ensuring the happiness and safety of the people.  These organizations call themselves “governments” and it is fairly obvious by now that they are absolutely horrible at their jobs and are actually responsible for the majority of the world’s suffering.  It doesn’t matter if it’s an open dictatorship, a democracy, a republic, a communist state or a system of mercantilism, they have all failed miserably in creating a free society.

Stave off Globalism: Reinvigorate Constitutional Principles

“We know how we got into this situation; we forgot to stay alert and hew to the values of our predecessors. Now we must ask how these trends can be reversed.  How can we rid the Unites States of globalism?”

America was founded on certain principles: those of individual liberty and responsibility, a small federal government, and sovereign states that would protect their citizens’ unalienable rights.  Over time many Americans got so involved in living their seemingly free lives they neglected oversight of what was happening to their country. Those who loved American ideals lived them and those who did not were busy working both from within and without the government to eradicate these principles from the American consciousness. 

This dumbing down of America was planned and it took place over many decades as Charlotte Iserbyt explains in her Deliberate Dumbing Down of America expose. Controlled media and public education infused the populace with attitudes, values and beliefs that enabled the power thrust of globalists to grow. Thus the greatest political experiment in the history of the world has morphed into what we now call “globalism”.   More

G. Edward Griffin Weighs In On Obama’s Executive Order and Codex!

After Barry Soetoro signed Executive Order #13544 on June 10, I wrote an article titled “Barry Soetoro, Imposter in Chief, Implements CODEX ALIMENTARIUS by Executive Order in the U.S.!” This article was published on June 14, and raised more than a few hackles. It was immediately rebutted on June 26 by Scott Tips of the National Health Federation in a press release titled “The Obama Executive Order – More Healthcare Bureaucracy, but Not Backdoor Codex.

In response to this press release, I provided substantiated proof that my thesis was correct in an article published on July 7, titled “CODEX ALIMENTARIUS: The Elephant in the Room that They Don’t Want You to See.”

Mr. G. Edward Griffin was kind enough to read this response, and agrees with my assessment of our current situation regarding Codex Alimentarius:

A contrary point of view was sent to us from Barbara Peterson, publisher of Farm Wars. In a spirited rebuttal published on her web site, she argued that, although it is true that the executive order does not directly create a framework for Codex, it does so indirectly because it gives federal agencies the power to control food, vitamins, and natural products provided only that they claim their decisions have a “scientific basis,” which is a standard that defies objective definition. She also points out that the federal agencies that will be making these so-called scientific decisions are populated by people who openly are committed to implementing the guidelines of Codex Alimentarius. There can be no doubt that whatever Codex says will be embraced as “scientifically based” by these federal agencies. Therefore, the executive order greases the wheels for the implementation of Codex without ever mentioning the word. READ MORE…


The truth is what is important, and not blind allegiance to an organization that is “too big” to be wrong. Read the E.O. for yourself, and don’t let others do your thinking for you. That is what the revolution is all about!

RAW MILK ALERTS: U.S. and Canadian Alliances for Raw Milk (ARMs) Formed for Farm Food Freedom–Michael Schmidt Speaks Out

Journal of Natural Food and Healing

by Michael Schmidt

It is now obvious that various groups are now unifying in the raw milk revolution. It is a battle of food and farming freedom centered around natural, raw milk; and one of individual liberty. Now is the time for all to stand up to be counted in this fast-growing movement.

U.S. and Canadian Raw Milk ALERT: Alliances for Raw Milk (ARMs) and Statement by Michael Schmidt

Schmidt: Form Alliances Now. Food Freedom crises is global in nature and beyond our imagination. This is our chance now for the future of our children.

Pirtle: the new unified Alliances that are beginning to form around the world are voicing a universal outcry of citizens.

Staven: There appears to be a political backlash . . . We can no longer sit idle and watch our inherent rights be cast aside in favor of corporate profits.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA (January 10, 2010)–  U.S. and Canadian Alliances for Raw Milk (ARMs) have announced their formation. These Alliances for Raw Milk (US ARM and Canadian ARM) and Family Farm and Food Freedom are to promote connections between natural farmers and dairies and families who want fresh, wholesome and healthy natural food choices based on their nutritional education.

There comes a pivot point in our society. A moment that is frozen in time, cradled in the hands of history when no longer as a society we operate as a unit of common sense. When opponents meet upon a battlefield and decide whom will be the victor. As we look back en-masse the realization that we have gone too far descends upon us : at that moment each individual must look into their very souls and ask “What have we done?”

A moment such as the many that span the written history of the Human race is now unfolding in Wisconsin. The opponents are defined such as David and Goliath. Powerful, strong, large and undefeatable versus the meek and humble, inexperienced in battle. The arrogance and sneering Goliath in this situation is none other than Clark County District Attorney Darwin Zwieg. Our David is Mr. Emanual Miller, an Old Order Amish.

Mr. Zwieg, not content to respect the religious rights, as set forth in the Wisconsin Constitution and cited here: More

Food Chain Radio to have Steve Hixon as guest

A FOOD CHAIN RADIO RELEASE FROM METROFARM.COM

Four seed companies now control 75% of the seed marketplace, and two of them– Monsanto and DuPont– are at slugging each other out in court for more.  The concentration of seeds in the hands of these giants leads us to ask…

Do the seed giants strengthen or weaken our food chain?

This Saturday at 9am Pacific, Michael Olson’s Food Chain Radio hosts Steve Hixon from Steve’s Seed Conditioning in Claremont, Illinois, for a conversation about the politics of seeds.

Topics include how four companies came to control so much of the nation’s seeds; how those giant companies control the competition for seed dollars; and why the USDA is holding public hearings on this consolidation.

What begins with the trappings of good will, respect and even love, can often disintegrate into petty differences, resentment and rising anger.  What starts out as mutual common ground in the building of a family, or the foundation for a country, can unravel if the common ground or the foundation is disturbed, distorted, or loses its meaning and significance.  When the spirit of love, or the spirit of freedom, that binds two people or a nation together, is fractured by forces that tear it asunder, marriages and nations begin to crumble.  And so it is, as the divide between Americans grows wider, as the principles of our freedom are eroded by the actions of those who seek more power over the masses and those who seek to live off the sweat of others, America is beginning to come apart at the seams, as the resentment towards opposing views becomes even more acrimonious.

Resentment turns to heated discussions.  Discussions turn to arguments and arguments turn to shouting and shouting can lead to violence.  This is the path that many a man and woman take as their union, once blessed by God, is shattered by their differences over culture, money, religion, politics, abnormal behavior, cheating, abandonment and sex.  This is the path our nation is taking, as cracks open wider in the foundation of our liberty.

Sometimes, marriages can be saved with counseling, but that only occurs when there exists the utmost good faith of the parties who seek reconciliation.  If there is no good faith, the union dies.  And thus, the union of states, our cherished America, is about to die, if good faith is absent and if there is no attempt to return it to the principles of freedom, upon which it was founded.

We have descended into a nation immersed in an arena of squabbles, some petty, some major.  We squabble over who gets their piece of the Treasury first and how much.  We fight like Hell to maintain “our share” and fight even harder to get more.  We squabble over going to war, even though foreign enemies camp outside our doors and send spies into our midst to kill us and severely damage our infrastructure and our economy, as happened on 9/11.  It will happen again, make no mistake.

For almost 100 years, we have let our government manipulate us while we looked the other way.  We have bought into the propaganda, hype, distortion and lies about the degree of compassion we owe to those less fortunate, with the degree decided by government, or the fraud that is man-caused global warming.  Way too many of us can’t wait to get “our share” of Nationalized Health Care that our government is going to shove down our throats, in spite of massive opposition and in spite of absolutely no constitutional governing authority to do so.  In allowing government to “buy” us off for a few pieces of silver, the chains that come with those few pieces, subject us to self-inflicted slavery.

An extraordinary crime: The senseless killing of 700 Elk in Minnesota

PPJG Original article  4:15 cst  September 23, 2009

 

elkby Marti Oakley (C) 2009

When I read that a prized herd of 700 elk in southeastern Minnesota was being destroyed by sharpshooters under the employ of the USDA, I just couldn’t help but wonder what was really going on.  Supposedly, from all published accounts, a dead cow had tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease.  This supposedly occurred in January of 2009 and the herd has been quarantined since that time.  In my opinion, this is what the elk herd really suffered from: 

Chronic, “These elk are in the way of our new investment and building plans; help us get rid of them” disease.

TOWER INVESTMENTS UNVEILS PLANS FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY CENTER AT ELK RUN FACILITY.

Intro from this publication: (excerpted)

Pine Island, Minn. – (June 18, 2008) Tower Investments, LLC announced today at the Bio2008 International Convention in San Diego, Calif., plans for the Biotechnology Center at Elk Run (BCER) research, development and manufacturing facility. The center is a nonprofit organization committed to the development of biotechnology firms, technologies and services. Its first home—part of the 200-acre BioBusiness Park at Elk Run—is the first building slated for construction as part of the 2,325-acre master planned Elk Run development. (end excerpt)

Unfortunately for Tower Investments, a herd of 700 elk stood in the way of their grand scheme.  Actually, the herd represented a minor nuisance as Tower Investments immediately began working with local Representative, (D) Tim Walz which proved quite beneficial. More
