Brooke Baldwin: Would you, would your fellow African American lawmakers be as concerned about this case if Trayvon wasnât black?
Congresswoman Corrine Brown:Â Oh let me tell you something. We had an incident in my area where a young white female was murdered and I was just as concerned, absolutely, I care about all of the children.Â You know, you can make this…
Baldwin:Â Congresswoman Brown, what was her name?
Congresswoman Brown:Â The young lady that got killed?
Baldwin:Â Yes maâam
Congresswoman Brown:Â In, in Orange, uh, County…Â Yeah, yeah, the young lady who got killed.
Baldwin:Â Do you remember?
Congresswoman Brown:Â Uh, I donât â I donât remember her name, but we had all kinds of rallies in the community, in Jacksonville, that I participated in and I made sure that the sheriff department had the money that they need to pursue the case, so just donât try to act like this is about this one black male, this is about all of the children…
Anonymous, the group of hacker activists, has applied for the position.
Their resume includes hacking the US Federal Trade Commission and taking down the Department of Justice website.Â They send sternly worded warnings before the cyber-attacks take place.Â It’s the kind of thing that makes the rest of us yearn to learn Linux and code so that we can participate in the fun.
But are we jumping on a bandwagon designed to take us for a quick ride to the closest Fema Re-education Center?Â Is Anonymous actually on our side, or is the group actually a psy-ops plant – an agentÂ provocateur?
TheÂ members of Anonymous haveÂ set themselves up as the cyber-Robin Hoods of the internet.Â They have issued a statement informing the world of their plan to take down the ‘net this Saturday.
âTo protest SOPA, Wallstreet, our irresponsible leaders and the beloved bankers who are starving the world for their own selfish needs out of sheer sadistic fun, on March 31, anonymous will shut the Internet down.â
The attack will target the Domain Name Servers, which will make it impossible to reach a destination on the net without knowing the actual IP address of that website.
In the spirit of resistance, I’d like to applaud any effort to slow down the efforts of the global elite and the de facto government (or at the very least, really annoy them). HOWEVER………………….
This reeks of the CO-INTEL program. “COINTELPRO (an acronym for Counter Intelligence Program) was a series of covert, and often illegal, projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at surveiling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting domestic political organizations.”
I’m far from the only person who is suspicious of Anonymous. While it’s a topic of conjecture, there are too many links to federal agencies for me to be on the Hackers R Us bandwagon.
Remember how quickly the unPatriotÂ Act followed the 9/11 attacks? It only took 6 weeks for that particular attack on our Constitutional rights to pass through the Congress to the desk of President Bush.
The internet take-down (if it does indeed occur on Saturday) will be a false flag event that will allow the de facto government to come up with a new internet unPatriotÂ Act law. The new restrictions will make SOPA, PIPA and ACTA look like games at a Libertarian Party picnic. By exposing the vulnerability of our grid and our financial systems, the de facto government will frighten people into believing the coming censorship is, as always, “for our own good.”
Another clue that Anonymous is not what it presents itself to be is the group’s visibility in the mainstream media.
Twenty thousand students in 25 of Vitoria da Conquista’s 213 public schools started using T-shirts with chips earlier this week, secretary Coriolano Moraes said by telephone.
By 2013, all of the city’s 43,000 public school students, aged 4 to 14, will be using the chip-embedded T-shirts, he added.
Radio frequency chips in “intelligent uniforms” let a computer know when children enter school and it sends a text message to their cell phones. Parents are also alerted if kids don’t show up 20 minutes after classes begin with the following message: “Your child has still not arrived at school.”
“We noticed that many parents would bring their children to school but would not see if they actually entered the building because they always left in a hurry to get to work on time,” Moraes said in a telephone interview. “They would always be surprised when told of the number times their children skipped class.
After a student skips classes three times parents will be asked to explain the absences. If they fail to do so, the school may notify authorities, Moares said.
The city government invested $670,000 to design, test and make the microchipped T-shirts, he said.
The chips, similar to those used to track pets in many countries, are placed underneath each school’s coat-of-arms
A police state is one in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive.
The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement. Political control may be exerted by means of a secret police force which operates outside the boundaries normally imposed by a constitutional state.
The media and even our President are dealing us a hand from a deck of stacked cards and they have just dealt the race card using the Trayvon killing in Florida which will ultimately lead to further racism in this country. We already see it happening. People are turning against one another. Just scroll through the comments section of any mainstream media article regarding Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman. This is going to turn out to be another ‘Rodney King’ and riots are sure to take place that will be even worse than those that took place in Los Angeles. Gun owners will turn against those that oppose guns and vice versa. Those that support our police will lash out at those that don’t and vice versa. Black verses White. Poor verses Rich. Hoodie verses Suit and Tie. The list goes on and on.
Events such as this only distract Americans from reality. As long as they can keep you distracted and divided they can keep doing what they are doing. Theyâd love to get a race riot or two going, then maybe we could have martial law and more executive orders implemented to take away more of our freedom.
This also works nicely in Obamaâs favor, Americans were beginning to catch on that the first black president is a tool of the bankers and is happily continuing the Jim Crowe Drug War which strips minorities of their rights and puts them in prison for inordinate amounts of time for non-violent drug offenses, while trillions are going to the bankers who have committed fraud to the point where the middle class is actually starting to shrink and upward mobility for minorities is again becoming difficult. Obama oversees the bailouts and deals to the detriment of all but our Oligarchs. Meantime this is a great story to focus on. RACE is an issue to divide and Obama is great at playing the race card.
Let’s look back to 9/11. We all agree that it was a sad day in American history and wanted someone to pay for what had happened. But let’s examine what has transpired. The creation of the ‘Patriot Act’ took place. What did the ‘Patriot Act’ do to America. It took away our civil liberties and rights. The government was able to gain full control of America and tell it’s citizens that all the screenings, surveillance, probing, monitoring and removal of freedom was for our own protection against the terrorists. What it really did was give the illusion of safety while taking away our freedoms.
Then came along some other Bills such as the NDAA,Â SOPA/PIPA, OPEN, EEA and the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act (better knows as the âAnti-Protestâ Bill).
The end result of this Elitist Collectivism is that Americans are now practicing Communists.Â To prove my point let us go through theÂ 10 Planks of the Communist ManifestoÂ and see how we practice every single aspect of Communism.
âThe way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.âVladimir Lenin
1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.Â You do not own your property. If you do not pay your property taxes or registration on your car, your assets are seized.Â You donât even own your dollars in savings or retirement, because the government can inflate away your wealth by printing more money. Throw on top of this all of the zoning, regulations, licensing and taxes that can effectively determine the value and ownership of all assets and even your job.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.Â The power to tax is the power to destroy. We have had a income tax since the establishment of the privately and foreign owned Federal Reserve in 1914. The Elite established this tax by telling the masses only the ârichâ would be taxed. Little did the public know that this tax served not only to eliminate the wealth of competitors of the Banksters and became the beachhead for a much larger taxing system that we all have come to accept as inevitable as death. Another secret to this tax plan is that the Elite created foundations that were tax free where the Elite owned ânothingâ and controlled everything. Their wealth is about control and the money is just a means to that end. That is why you do not see the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers real wealth on the Forbes richest people. These families are Trillionaires.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.Â The Estate tax confiscates the wealth of families after they have been taxed their whole lives. When you consider how much of your wealth is confiscated by taxes and inflation over your lifetime it is an absolute travesty to have a tax at the end of your life. This is necessary for the Elite to keep power, because if families were able to pass wealth to generations below them without taxes, many families would not need the Banksters debt to live. The Rothschildâs gold vaults have never been audited or taxed allowing them to transfer wealth throughout the generations without degradation.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.Â We have become accustomed to the tax liens and government seizures. ThroughÂ Executive Orders the government canÂ seize all propertyÂ during ânational emergencies.â These laws sit on the books like little bombs waiting to go off. It may start off with the government seizing the assets of drug dealers or illegal immigrants, but it will not stop until they get to you too. You will see a day where people who speak out against the government will risk losing their entire lifeâs work for having the audacity to say the emperor has no clothes.
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.Â This is a technicality that the Federal Reserve system is privately owned and not state owned. The Elite want concentration of wealth and their privately owned central banks rule the world by owning the money. Through the Central banks they control all money that controls industry, governments, war, media and ultimately you. This is the most essential plank of the collectivist agenda.
6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.Â The TSA, FAA, FCC and the DOT control and regulate all means of communication and transportation. We cannot even drive without a drivers license and vehicle registration. This is done to stifle dissent and eliminate the freedom to move which is essential to proper slavery.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.Â This one is perhaps hardest to see for the average American. Our corporations are an extension of our Elite. They have no concern about what is good for America, which is why they ship jobs overseas. Our corporations and state work hand in hand to pillage the Earth. This Fascist combination is a Collectivist dream. Where our government cannot go, our âfree marketâ does and vice versa. This is most obvious in the Military Industrial Complex. The privatization of war and no bid contracts for security and reconstruction efforts show how the Elite have a close loop of power.
Another way this apparent domestically is that through subsidies. So many industries and assets value are derived from the will of the state. How much is your house worth if there is no tax deduction for interest, or subsidized 30 year mortgages? How many companies would not be profitable if there was not government regulation squashing competition or corporate welfare?Â Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control business through corporate regulations.
8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.Â The minimum wage and global economic parity seeks to equalize the cost of labor down to its lowest common denominator. âFree tradeâ with slave nations like China destroy labor and manufacturing in wealthy nations. This is done so that all of humanity is at a subsistence level and that no nation can challenge the Eliteâs power. Through the process of inflation it forces women into the work force to keep up with the rising costs which drives down the value of labor. Illegal immigration is another way the Elite gut the value of labor in America. They keep the doors wide open so that it adds pressure to the lowest levels of labor. Remember that giant sucking sound?
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.Â Our entire food system has become a centralized food factory turning out the most unhealthiest food known to man. Corporations control the country side with their contracts. Anyone not in the system, is forced out of business. Monsanto is perhaps the most known practitioner of this method. Processed, fast and mass manufactured food has caused obesity, cancer and depression to rise in our country. This again is designed to weaken us as a nation and create massive profits for the Medical Industrial Complex.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of childrenâs factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.Â Our Public School system in forced indoctrination of the minds of our children. This system drains our wealth, intelligence, and values. The system is designed for your children to donât ask questions and follow the rules. The children learn not to work together and obey authority. This is ingrained in our society so that we never question authority or work together.
In a recent statement put out byÂ âPlanet Under Pressureâ several scientists call for denser cities in order to mitigate worldwide population growth. When in doubt that UNâs Agenda 21 is not theÂ Mein KampfÂ of our day, one should consider yet another in-your-face confession from yet another certified biocratic control freak
According toÂ anÂ MSNBCarticleÂ one of the scientists while speaking about human populations worldwide, stated:
âWe certainly donât want them strolling about the entire countryside. We want them to save land for nature by living closely [together].â
Insisting the worldâs population be locked up within the confounds of mega-cities, the elite realizes that if the herd is to be properly controlled walls are needed- thick walls, and by constructing these walls, making the masses go this or that way will be made easier..
Chief scientist MichailÂ FragkiasÂ involved with âPlanet under Pressureâ told MSNBCÂ that âthe answer (to population growth) is denser cities.â
Rachel Bustamante captured the following video of what can only be described as an individual who has completely lost their capacity to act rationally.
Lunatic in my evolution class asking the most absurd question and gets angry when the Prof (Dr. Kajiura) doesn’t know how to answer it.
Context: The slide we were on just before was about Female Sexual Selection. For instance, female peacocks have selection in their mates, preferring the males with the bigger train of feathers.. Somehow she went off on some tangent with a question about how does Evolution play a role in the killing of all black people…
Dr. Kajiura tried to answer her question even though he had no idea what she was talking about. She repeated her question 4-5 more times and it turned into this craziness you see here… Clearly, this person has some SERIOUS emotional issues within herself and the discussion of PEACOCKS was the catalyst to the unleashing of this insanity.
She was escorted out of class and I heard she was tasered and arrested by the police. Today was our review day before a test on Thursday and students were getting irritated by her wasting our time. No one understood what her point was… Craziest thing I’ve ever seen.
Apparently natural selection doesn’t remove crazy from the population.
In 2006 the Democrats and the media screamed bloody murder over the high price of gas. When Barack Obama was inaugurated, the average gas price was $1.87 a gallon. Now that the price has more than doubled, what are the Democrats and the administration saying now?
The race conflicts created by the Florida incident involving African American teen Trayvon Martin and ‘white Hispanic’ George Zimmerman have prompted many to show their support by sporting Treyvon-inspired t-shirts, hoodies and accessories. The products have become so popular that Trayvon’s mother has filed a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office.
You may recall that Facebook has launched multiple lawsuits against websites incorporating the word “book” into their names. Facebook, as far as we can tell, doesn’t have a registered trademark on “book.” But trademark rights can be asserted based on use of a term, even if the trademark isn’t registered, and adding the claim to Facebook’s user agreement could boost the company’s standing in future lawsuits filed against sites that use the word.
“Unregistered marks are quite common in the US,” University of Minnesota Law Professor William McGeveran told Ars. “Rights arise from use, not registration (though registration does give you some other advantages). That’s how Facebook can try to claim ‘book.’” If you see a â˘ next to a name, that indicates an unregistered, claimed trademark, whereas an R in a circle signifies a registered one, McGeveran notes.
So, what exactly is Facebook changing? If you view theÂ currentÂ Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, you’ll find this sentence:
“You will not use our copyrights or trademarks (including Facebook, the Facebook and F Logos, FB, Face, Poke, Wall and 32665), or any confusingly similar marks, without our written permission.”
If you’re wondering, 32665 is the number allowing Facebook users to update their pages through text message. TheÂ newly revised user agreementÂ reads as follows (emphasis ours):
“You will not use our copyrights or trademarks (including Facebook, the Facebook and F Logos, FB, Face, Poke,Â BookÂ and Wall), or any confusingly similar marks, except as expressly permitted by our Brand Usage Guidelines or with our prior written permission.”
Now that it is clear President Obama is flexible about US missile defense plans in Europe (but only after the election), Russian PresidentÂ Dmitry Medvedev has reason to support another Obama term.
At a press conference today Medvedev attacked Mitt Romney for promoting Hollywood stereotypes of a bygone era.
Responding to Romney’s assertion thatÂ RussiaÂ is the United States’ “number one geopolitical foe,” Medvedev said at the conclusion of a nuclear-security summit inÂ South KoreaÂ that the statement was “very reminiscent ofÂ HollywoodÂ and also of a certain phase in Russian-U.S. relations.”
“My first advice is to listen to reason when they formulate their positions. Reason never harmed a presidential candidate,” Medvedev said, according to news reports.
“My other advice is to check their watches from time to time: It is 2012, not the mid-1970s.”
“In terms of a geopolitical foe, a nation that’s on the Security Council, and is of course a massive nuclear power, Russia is the geopolitical foe,” Romney said Monday.
“The idea that our president is planning on doing something with them that he’s not willing to tell the American people before the election is something I find very, very alarming.”
The U.S. dollar has probably been the closest thing to a true global currency that the world has ever seen.Â For decades, the use of the U.S. dollar has been absolutely dominant in international trade.Â This has had tremendous benefits for the U.S. financial system and for U.S. consumers, and it has given the U.S. government tremendous power and influence around the globe.Â Today, more than 60 percent of all foreign currency reserves in the world are in U.S. dollars.Â But there are big changes on the horizon.Â The mainstream media in the United States has been strangely silent about this, but some of the biggest economies on earth have been making agreements with each other to move away from using the U.S. dollar in international trade.Â There are also some oil producing nations which have begun selling oil in currencies other than the U.S. dollar, which is a major threat to the petrodollar systemwhich has been in place for nearly four decades.Â And big international institutions such as the UN and the IMF have even been issuing official reports about the need to move away form the U.S. dollar and toward a new global reserve currency.Â So the reign of the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency is definitely being threatened, and the coming shift in international trade is going to have massive implications for the U.S. economy.
A lot of this is being fueled by China.Â China has the second largest economy on the face of the earth, and the size of the Chinese economy is projected to pass the size of the U.S. economy by 2016.Â In fact, one economist is even projecting that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2040.
So China is sitting there and wondering why the U.S. dollar should continue to be so preeminent if the Chinese economy is about to become the number one economy on the planet.
Over the past few years, China and other emerging powers such as Russia have been been quietly making agreements to move away from the U.S. dollar in international trade.Â The supremacy of the U.S. dollar is not nearly as solid as most Americans believe that it is.
As the U.S. economy continues to fade, it is going to be really hard to argue that the U.S. dollar should continue to function as the primary reserve currency of the world.Â Things are rapidly changing, and most Americans have no idea where these trends are taking us.
The following are 10 reasons why the reign of the dollar as the world reserve currency is about to come to an end….
#1 China And Japan Are Dumping the U.S. Dollar In Bilateral Trade
A few months ago, the second largest economy on earth (China) and the third largest economy on earth (Japan) struck a deal which will promote the use of their own currencies (rather than the U.S. dollar) when trading with each other.Â This was an incredibly important agreement that was virtually totally ignored by the U.S. media.Â The following is from a BBC report about that agreement….
China and Japan have unveiled plans to promote direct exchange of their currencies in a bid to cut costs for companies and boost bilateral trade.
The deal will allow firms to convert the Chinese and Japanese currencies directly into each other.
Currently businesses in both countries need to buy US dollars before converting them into the desired currency, adding extra costs.
#2 The BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) Plan To Start Using Their Own Currencies When Trading With Each Other
The BRICS continue to flex their muscles.Â A new agreement will promote the use of their own national currencies when trading with each other rather than the U.S. dollar.Â The following is from a news source in India….
The five major emerging economies of BRICS — Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — are set to inject greater economic momentum into their grouping by signing two pacts for promoting intra-BRICS trade at the fourth summit of their leaders here Thursday.
The two agreements that will enable credit facility in local currency for businesses of BRICS countries will be signed in the presence of the leaders of the five countries, Sudhir Vyas, secretary (economic relations) in the external affairs ministry, told reporters here.
The pacts are expected to scale up intra-BRICS trade which has been growing at the rate of 28 percent over the last few years, but at $230 billion, remains much below the potential of the five economic powerhouses.
#3 The Russia/China Currency Agreement
Russia and China have been using their own national currencies when trading with each otherÂ for more than a year now.Â Leaders from both Russia and China have been strongly advocating for a new global reserve currency for several years, and both nations seem determined to break the power that the U.S. dollar has over international trade.
#4 The Growing Use Of Chinese Currency In Africa
Who do you think is Africa’s biggest trading partner?
North Miami Beach police said surveillance video shows dozens of high school students demonstrating in the Trayvon Martin case Friday ransacking a Walgreens store.
The incident occurred during a walkout from North Miami Beach Senior High School in support of Martin, 17, who was fatally shot in Sanford. Protesters have been calling for the arrest of George Zimmerman, 28, who has not been charged because he claimed self-defense in the shooting, according to police.
With the current world economic situation, wise people understand that paper money is simply the illusion of money. It is a representation of wealth of which the value can be rapidly manipulated. The US Federal Reserve randomly prints off bills with no commodity backing them, making the only value of these bills the worth that is allowed by the banksters and the elite
So in light of this, how do we save for the rainy days to come?
Once youâve established the basics of your survival preparedness, you can protect your personal wealth by investing in precious metals. There are many different ways to acquire gold and silver. Here are a few:
â˘ Purchase the pieces from mints or exchanges
â˘ Purchase old pieces of jewelry or coins from yard sales, estate sales, thrift stores and Craigslist
â˘ From trusted sellers on EBay
Mints and exchanges offer a sure thing. These businesses are built on trust and integrity. However when you purchase from everyday people or take a gamble on buying something at the thrift store, you need to be able to identify and test the metals yourself.
When we look at broad measures of jobs and population, then the beginning of 2012 was one of the worst months in US history, with a total of 2.3 million people losing jobs or leaving the workforce in a single month. Yet, the official unemployment rate showed a decline from 8.5% to 8.3% in January – and was such cheering news that it set off a stock rally.
How can there be such a stark contrast between the cheerful surface and an underlying reality that is getting worse?
The true unemployment picture is hidden by essentially splitting jobless Americans up and putting them inside one of three different “boxes”: the official unemployment box, the full unemployment box, and the most obscure box, the workforce participation rate box.
As we will explore herein, a detailed look at the government’s own data base shows that about 9 million people without jobs have been removed from the labor force simply by the government defining them as not being in the labor force anymore. Indeed – effectively all of the decreases in unemployment rate percentages since 2009 have come not from new jobs, but through reducing the workforce participation rate so that millions of jobless people are removed from the labor force by definition.
When we pierce through this statistical smoke and mirrors and factor back in those 9 million jobless whom the government has defined out of existence, then the true unemployment rate is 19.9% and rising, and not 8.3% and falling.
For the small percentage of people who are aware that the purported decline in unemployment rates is primarily based on the mysterious rapid decline in “labor force participation rates” rather than the number of new jobs, the government has a ready and sensible-sounding explanation: the Boomers are beginning to retire in large numbers, and with an aging population, the percentage of adults who are in the workforce should logically be declining.
Based on in-depth analysis of the government’s own numbers, we will present herein the true picture: 74% of the jobless who have been removed from unemployment calculations are in the 16-54 age bracket, with only 26% in the 55 and above bracket. Yes, the population is aging – but the heart of the workforce participation deception isn’t about the old.
In an extraordinarily cynical act, the government is effectively saying that because the job situation has been so bad for many millions of unemployed people in their 40s, 30s, 20s and teens, they can no longer be considered to be potential participants in the work force at all. Because there is no hope for them – they no longer need to be counted. And it is this steady statistical cleansing from the workforce of the worst of the economic casualties – of these very real millions of individual tragedies – that is being presented as a rapidly improving jobs picture.
What the government’s statistical deception is hiding is a catastrophic degree of change in generational employment levels, with the situation being much worse for the young and middle-aged than what is publicly presented. As the fundamental force of aging Boomers increasingly collides with the fundamental force of an employment disaster among younger Americans, the results may change everything that we think we know about economic growth, budget deficits, Social Security and Medicare, as well as all categories of investments.
There is a method to the apparent madness of the US government.Â This sustained erosion of our liberty is strategically designed to destroy the morale of Patriots.
We have been spectators to the deliberate destruction of our way of lifeÂ since 9/11, a false flag event that allowed for the speedy passage of the unPatriot Act.
Our liberty has been eroded bit by bit, with the de facto government chiseling away at the Bill of Rights and the United States Constitution.
The White House has been infiltrated by a President whoÂ is not constitutionally eligible to be one.
Patriots have been demonized by the alphabet soup agencies and the mainstream media, painted as dangerous domestic terrorists.Â We are all “on a list” and being tracked via the computer.
The media has become nothing more than a projector for the propaganda being spat out by the de facto government.Â In the mainstream, there are no more investigative reporters, and journalistic integrity is completely dead.
Freedom of speech and freedom of the pressÂ have beenÂ threatened byÂ a multinational treaty that presents itself as a ban on pirating, but is in all actuality a legal loophole to shut down any website at any time. (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement
There is not even an effort to hide the election fraud occurring weekly in the Republican primary.Â Protesters from the Ron Paul campaign are summarily arrested and charged with disturbing the peace.
The hits keep coming, one after another, a relentless attack on the core beliefs of America.Â But why is the de facto government taking this lengthy route to subjugate the people?
Â Now, when your weapons are dulled, your ardor damped, your strength exhausted and your treasure spent, other chieftains will spring up to take advantage of your extremity. Then no man, however wise, will be able to avert the consequences that must ensue.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â ~ Sun Tzu’s Art of War
This is an attack on the morale of the American people. The Powers That Be are taking this circuitous route to mire us in hopelessness and to take away our will to fight.
This is a ploy to wear us down and exhaust us.
They want us to feel like our protests are meaningless and that we are powerless against them.
We are being acclimatized to facism via the Brown ShirtsTSA and the GestapoDHS.
Our children are being brainwashed in our public school system to be good little robots and eat their GMO lunches.
The de facto government is trying to make the totalitarian way of life the norm for us -Â to make it so familiar that to rebel would be psychologically painful.
The goal is to teach us that dissent is not an option and will be harshly punished.
The lesson from the PTB is that resistance against their agenda is useless.
In many places, unfortunately, it is working.Â There is a buzz about “laying low” andÂ “staying under the radar” because some feel that there is just no point in further resistance.Â These folks have been convinced that we simply are not strong enough to fight the de facto government in place in Washington, DC.
They are wrong and they have been brainwashed – the strategy is working – these people have allowed the psychological attacks to browbeat them into submission.
Here are the things we, as Patriots, must remember:
We outnumber them.Â They may control (at this point) the military, with superior weapons and training, but there are many many more of us.
Our motivation is matchless.Â We are fighting for the freedom of our children and grandchildren – without our resistance we are condemning them to a life of slavery.
We are armed.Â America actually boasts more firearms in civilian hands than it does civilians.
We have the power of the alternative media and the internet, where, so far, freedom of speech still exists.
We have more than 200 years of history as a constitutional republic behind us.
We are now at a vital point in the battle.Â As the election approaches we must seize back our power and retake our government.Â Now is not the time to quit fighting, the time to hide or the time to submit.Â Do not fall prey to the attack on Patriot morale.Â Don’t allow the psychological warfare of the de facto government to sway you, soften your resolve, or make you feel powerless.
Our own coup d’etat is at hand and we must boldly take back our liberty or die trying.
Â ”You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children (America), the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”
Over a dozen non-euro trading networks are already believed to be operating in communities throughout the embattled nation, with more on the way. But one effort in particular â called Local Alternative Units, or âTEMsâ in Greek â has attracted a great deal of international attention.
In the port town of Volos â where unemployment is above 20 percent, the economy is struggling, and tax rates are rising â a group of locals decided it was time to take action. The population still had the same skills and resources as before the crisis, just not the euros needed for commerce.
So,Â a handful ofÂ people got together and formed the alternative currency known as the TEM. It quickly took off. And major newspapers and media outlets around the world â from the United States to the United Kingdom â have taken notice as it continues to expand.
âEver since the crisis thereâs been a boom in such networks all over Greece,â University of Crete vice chancellor and political economy professor George Stathakis told the New York Times, adding that despite an enormous government sector, Greek âsocial servicesâ were being overwhelmed. âThere are so many huge gaps that have to be filled by new kinds of networks.â
The TEM system works by allowing people in the community to set up an account on an online network, connecting them with others in the area with various needs and a wide array of services to offer. Users also receive a sort of booklet allowing them to essentially write âchecksâ to pay for goods and services.
A real market where people can meet to trade in TEMS is also a key component of the emerging network. And efforts are currently underway to establish a daily market in an unused building for locals to engage in commerce using their system.
Babysitters, farmers, teachers, electricians, barbers, bakers, computer technicians, opticians, veterinarians, and more are all represented. Most traders accept both euros and TEMs, or some combination of the two.
Member accounts start with zero TEMs, although users are allowed to borrow up to 300 units if they agree to repay it over a certain time period. And to prevent âhoarding,â the systemâs managers explained, no user is allowed to have over 1,200 units of the currency.
“It’s an easier, more direct way of exchanging goods and services,” German-born homeopathist and acupuncturist Bernhardt Koppold, an active member of the Volos network, told the UK Guardian. “It’s also a way of showing practical solidarity â of building relationships.”
Dozens of other users expressed similar sentiments about their budding system. Co-founders of the TEMs network also explained that if the crisis were to spiral further into the realm of cataclysm, the alternative-currency system could help take up the slack â ensuring that a functioning economy would allow people to continue trading for survival.
Even local officials are encouraging citizens to get involved. Volos Mayor Panos Skotiniotis, for example, told NPR that such initiatives are especially valuable during the economic crisis as the government struggles to pay its bills.
“This is a substitution for the welfare state, and that is why this municipality is encouraging it and wants it to grow,” he said. The local government has even printed leaflets explaining the system and helped promote panel discussions about it.
At the national level, politicians seem to support the idea, too. Late last year, the Greek Parliament even passed a law urging citizens to build non-traditional forms of âentrepreneurship and local development.â The legislation also granted the informal networks official non-profit status, helping to ease the tax burden on struggling Greeks saddled with massive debts imposed by national and international officials.
And around the world, the system has attracted praise from a broad array of commentators. âWith so many fictional stories about how people will turn on one another in the event of a collapse, it’s great to see a real-life example of folks who band together to make things work during tough times,â wrote Lauren Davis with the online service io9.com.
No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the house. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the house is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at the truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the numbers of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it.
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received?
Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlement assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation.
There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free–if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending–if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained–we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us! They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength but irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extentuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace–but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
This is something out of an Orwellian science fiction movie.
The Italian tax authorities are now field testing a new system called âredditometroâ, a database thatÂ automatically collects and analyzes taxpayersâ tax data vs. spending dataÂ based on automated collection of credit card and banking information.
For example, if the credit card reports show that you have an expensive gym membershipâŚ or perhaps you bought too fancy of a mobile phone, then the system will flag you if your annual tax liability isnât commensurate with such spending habits.
Big Brother would be proud.
Preliminary results showed thatÂ a full 20% of Italian taxpayers will be initially flagged, much to the delight of agency director Attilio Befera. According to Befera, âWe have âŹ120 billion of tax evasion, and to cope with this emergency, we need to take emergency measuresâŚâ
Naturally, the way to deal with fiscal urgency is to treat everyone like a suspect. Befera has dismissed criticism from privacy groups, wrapping himself up in a blanket of duty and righteousnessââdesperate times call for desperate measuresâ and all that nonsense.
Itâs the same rationalization you see with these lowlife government agents who molest children at airports; they look in the mirror each morning and convince themselves that theyâre keeping the country safe from criminal terrorists. Their mission is nobleâŚ and that justifies the means.
Daily Sheeple Editor’s Note: They’ll dole out millions of dollars in untraceable cash to Taliban warlords in Afghanistan and mercenary corporations, but the troops risking their lives have to wait weeks and months to get paid, all the while their families back home suffer as they try to make ends meet on a soldier’s paltry salary.
As long as America has been going to war, problems have emerged paying our soldiers promptly, properly, and sometimes at all. However, in this age of direct deposit and the ability to change or modify any individualâs payroll with a few keystrokes on a computer there is no excuse for the outrage soldiers and those soldierâs with families are enduring now under two administrations while serving on active duty in the fraudulent âWar on Terror.â
Unfortunately, some soldiers stuck in the winter hell known as Afghanistan may have gone unpaid for months due to the inept bureaucracy inside the beltway. This is not an âObama problemâ but instead a continuation of the Bush administrationâs inconsiderate ineptness and unwillingness to clean the ratâs nest known as the Pentagon out of its antiquated ideology of allowing the next rubber stamp to find a solution to payroll problems for active duty and deployed military personnel.
The story from the e-magazineÂ Government ExecutiveÂ suggests this issue is so severe that in some cases, soldiers have experienced delays in not just regular pay but combat pay and bonuses for MONTHS after their assignments began.
Every day we see new laws and regulations coming out of Washington that can have no other meaning than to strip us of our inherent freedoms. While many Americans still see the government as a noble creatureÂ thatÂ will fulfill their needs and wants, it is becoming obvious to a small minority that something very evil lurks just over the horizon and out of full view. To attempt to warn the majority is an attempt in futility. Many will refuse to believe the truth even as they are marched to their death. The propaganda organs are in full swingÂ and that is all most will acknowledge as if a narcotic providing their next high and feeling of relief from the harsh realities of the world. The minority feel they must prepare as best as they can for the coming cataclysm they view as inevitable. They are prepared to resist the tyranny they feel approaching with everything they have. The words, our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor resonate to the very heart of what these patriots stand for. Without freedom, there is no life worth living that would provide a meaningful existence. These patriots are prepared to fight if necessary to protect what rightfully belongs to them.
If the government decides to take that which it does not own, the situation could devolve into a bloody gorilla war all across this nation. The federals would call into action all assets they have at their disposal to fight this resistance including foreign troops and hired mercenaries that have no compunction about shooting Americans. The civilian resistance could blunt and even overwhelm the federal civilian forces but the active military forces would bring a new element into play with their weapons and tactics. It is reasonable to expect a number of these federal troops to refuse orders against their own countrymen but the number is unknown at this point and many troops would indeed follow orders if they determined it to be in their best interest.
The one wild card in this game will be the National Guard units scattered around the country. There are only a few dozen active duty army bases scattered around the nation but there are about 3,200 National Guard armories with a compliment of weapons and troops. With the reduction of forces after Desert Storm, over 60% of the army combat arms troops now reside in the National Guard. These are the front line trigger pullers whose job it is to close with and engage the enemy. These include infantry, armor, artillery, air defense artillery andÂ army aviation . It has been said before that you cannot hold real estate without boots on the ground and these combat arms personnel are the ones that do that. This is why the army cannot conduct large scale combat operations anywhere in the world without involvingÂ the National Guard forces .
If National Guard forces alone decide to honor their oath and stand with their communities, the federals will have a difficult time trying to overwhelm and passify the nation at large. These citizen soldiers live and work in the communities where they serve and the act of turning their weapons on their family members and neighbors is something many would not be willing to do. But even this cannot be guaranteed.Â Even with all active duty forces aligned against the civilian population this citizen soldier element has the means to bring it to a standstill. The citizen soldiers and their civilian allies are the one and only thing that can guarantee our continued freedom.Â How the National Guard reacts to any type of Martial Law proclamation from Washington will determine the fate of the nation to a large degree.
If it becomes evident to the federals that they do not have the cooperation and complete control of the National Guard forces, you could expect them to attempt to disarm the guard troops by locking them out of their armories and motor pools and attempting to secure this equipment.Â It is unknown at this time how effective that tactic would be but it would be a sign to the civilian population that conflict is not far off.Â A similar tactic would involve starting a major war overseas and deploying most of these troops to the combat theatre to get them out of the way and keep them under control. This would allow government controlled forces freedom of movement in the U.S. To even have to suggest this kind of potential scenario happening in this country is frightening , but it is the type of world we now live in. This monster called tyranny must be put back in itsâ box before it consumes us all. Only time will tell how the next chapter of American history will evolve , but we can only hope that God is generous in our time of need.
About The American Dream Lost:Â What is the American dream? Inside you will discover what this elusive idea is and why it made us great. Forces are now building that could destroy our way of life and our standard of living. Here you will find a simple strategy to protect yourself from the economic flood that is begining to wash across this nation. Many have already lost everything and those that do not take action soon will be devastated. The clock is ticking.
Iranian agents have successfully infiltrated American think-tanks, universities, and our political system as part of a plot to keep the United States from attacking the Islamic regime as it continues to expand terrorism worldwide and pursue its nuclear weapons and missile programs.
The infiltration goal is to mold American opinion and create doubt about the advisability of attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities — all part of a longstanding strategy to pull the strings of America and the West.
Iranian leaders first successfully engaged U.S. forces in Iraq at a time when President Bush was in an offensive policy of confronting Islamists after 9/11.Â The Iranians correctly believed that if America got bogged down in Iraq, it would not want to open another front with Iran before stabilizing Iraq, buying Iran time for nuclear development.
Iran had already infiltrated the Shiite majority in Iraq during the Iran-Iraq War.Â At that time, I was working asÂ aÂ CIA spyÂ in the Revolutionary GuardsÂ and was reporting their activities to America.Â When the U.S. went to war against Saddam, the Iranians began a campaign of terror in Iraq that not only crippled America financially by stringing out an unfunded war, but killed many U.S. soldiers.
The same infiltration policy was enforced in Afghanistan with the training and arming of Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters against NATO forces.
That strategy kept Iran’s rulers out of harm’s way, allowed them to pursue their nuclear and missile programs with impunity, and forced America to rethink its involvement in the region.Â They called their strategy a great victory over the “Great Satan.”
The popularity of the U.S. Congress is at an all-time low. AÂ recent CBS News/New York TimesÂ pollÂ shows that just 9 percent of Americans approve of the federal legislative body. How bad is that? Well, just about the only thing Americans hate more than Congress is Fidel Castro.
Chris Cillizza at theÂ Washington Post’sÂ FixÂ blog maps out the approval numbers of Congress in relation to the approval numbers of other vastly unpopular people and institutions:
The Mexican State of Chiapas held a âmega earthquake drillâ just minutes before the 7.8 Richter scale earthquake registered in Southern Mexico, according to the news websiteÂ ADNPolitico.com. Governor Juan Sabines Guerrero sent a message from his Twitter account just six minutes before the actual earthquake. The translation of the message is the following:
âWeâre at the State of Chiapas Civil Protection Center. Everything is ready for the 7.9 Richter scale earthquake simulation.â
Six minutes later, and about 500 kilometers west of Chiapas, in the neighboring southern state of Guerrero, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake was registered. The earthquake was so massive that over a hundred aftershocks were felt throughout the following day.
The Chiapas Civil Protection âmega earthquake simulationâ was planned since last February, according to state officials.Â The purpose of this drill was to test the responsiveness of the State Civil Protection System and the general public upon the occurrence of a large scale earthquake, and to allow the exercise participants to evaluate and provide feedback on first response protocol.
Facing direct opposition from the public, biotechnology giants like Monsanto and Dow are now making a disturbing attempt to brainwash developing minds into accepting their genetically modified foods using blatant lies and propaganda. In a last ditch effort to potentially sway public opinion, the Council for Biotechnology Information (CBI) has launched the âBiotechnology Basics Activity Bookâ for kids. With the intent to be used by âagriculture and science teachersâ, the activity book spreads absurd lies about GMO crops â even going as far as to say that they âimprove our healthâ and âhelp the environmentâ.
The book can be seen on the organizationâs website, and makes it extremely apparent that it is full of misinformation and propaganda that completely ignores scientific research surrounding genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In fact, letâs examine some claims made by this book that serves as an âeducationalâ tool to be used by teachers. The first claim by the activity book is that genetically modified seeds actually grow more food than traditional seeds, and is followed by even more ridiculous statements. The activity book reads:
âHi Kids! Welcome to the Biotechnology Basics Activity Book. This is an activity book for young people like you about biotechnology â a really neat topicâŚ. You will see that biotechnology is being used to figure out how to: 1) grow more food; 2) help the environment; and 3) grow more nutritious food that improves our health. As you work through the puzzles in this book, you will learn more about biotechnology and all of the wonderful ways it can help people live better lives in a healthier world. Have fun!â
Though numerous reports indicate that the NSA is building a data center in Utah with the capability of tracking, monitoring, storing,Â decrypting, and analyzingÂ all US phone and internet traffic, as well as private information about Americans like banking transactions, NSA ChiefÂ General Keith Alexander insisted that no matter what some insider sources may claim, the NSA is not able to spy on the communications of Americans inside of the United States.
âWe donât have the technical insights in the United States,â he claimed. âIn other words, you have to haveâŚ some way of doing that either by going to a service provider with a warrant or you have to be collecting in that area. Weâre not authorized to do that, nor do we have the equipment in the United States to collect that kind of information.â
