Jimmy Carter is collaborating with the Russians over Syria – I so admire his courage, may God not only bless him but keep him

Jimmy

Jimmy Carter

Former President Jimmy Carter recently admitted that he provided maps of Islamic State positions in Syria to the Russian embassy in Washington, a move apparently at odds with the Obama administration’s official policy of not cooperating with Russia in the Syrian war.

Some have called his actions sedition (speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch), treasonous and being an enemy of the state.

But how would former president Carter know the location of bombing targets? Well, former presidents are given briefings on current issues and international conflicts of importance similar to those that Obama receives as a courtesy to former heads of state.

Now, Jimmy, I call him Jimmy because I truly admire and love the man, may have been unduly criticized during his time in office, but upon leaving he became our only beacon of hope and trust to Third World countries around the world in the areas of housing, water, food. He wanted to end poverty – hey a peanut farmer!

If you have a comfortable home, enough money to go to restaurants, you do not know poverty. Sorry. However, this is Jimmy Carter’s dream.

He reminded the world that America was still potentially great and cared about the rest of the world, not the callous treatment by the Bush/Obama administrations that only want to kill innocent people via superior air power and drones, which is an indiscriminate destruction of entire villages, towns, hill sides, and sovereign nations.

Jimmy has terminal cancer. He will die soon, hopefully not too soon. Please pray that he becomes well and that God grants him more time with his family and us.

What does any man or woman do when he or she knows death is imminent?

He or she becomes an even more courageous man or woman before they were required to make compromises in order to succeed. He/she does the noble thing and tells the truth.

When you die my friend, and you will, what will you tell your children, friends and confidants at your death bed. Another lie or the truth?

The Death of a Democracy and the Revival of a Totalitarian State

The globalists, those that are attempting to create the so called, New World Order, have two major objectives. The first one is population control which includes mass mind manipulation and population reduction.

rfid_chip0013In previous posts, I have alluded to the techniques used by the media and banking systems to keep the American people in a consuming frenzy through constant advertising and easy credit. Soon that stimulus/response conditioning will be streamlined by the introduction of a micro chip-based consumer system that effectively eliminates the need for currency. You are merely debited electronically for your acquisitions; however, you are now even more trackable.

The individual consumer is not the only one getting in over his head. The National Debt has surpassed 60 Trillion and Obama is telling us increasing the debt is good for the economy. Did I miss something in Economics 101?

On the flip side, the government through its Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) uses mind control to create highly controlled and enhanced operatives or super-soldiers (MK Ultra) that have no legal or moral restrictions in their missions. A better term is government assassins.

Population reduction is accomplished through a complex global system that attacks the immune system and is accomplished by the introduction of chemical toxins into our food, air and health systems such as chemical food additives (and there are many), i.e., growth hormones in live stock, bisphenol-A in canned products, pesticides, fluoride, atmospheric spraying or chemtrails, GMOs, mercury in our vaccinations, rising nuclear radiation levels, an intentionally created dependency on drugs (legal and illegal), involuntary sterilization and the introduction of customized deadly viral diseases like Ebola and Aids. These are but a few of the strategies used by the merchants of death on this planet.

world fertility rateTheir goal? A global population of no more 500 million as opposed to the current world population of 7 billion. An alternative or in addition to the above strategies is global nuclear warfare (WWIII) which would be the fast track to population reduction. That strategy is being debated by the globalists in the highest circles, some with a conscience, others not so much.

Not to worry, however, they already have their underground bunkers, even cities, stockpiled with food, water and luxuries to wait out the fallout.

I mentioned in the beginning that there were two major objectives. The second is the subjugation of individual thought, creativity and freedom of choice and the establishment of a robotic mentality that obeys and is content to be in bondage, rather like the house slaves on a Southern plantation. Essentially, it is George Orwell’s visionary book, “1984” and beyond.

When the time comes, I told you so,

The official version of the Pentagon attack on 9/11 is a bold-faced lie

Pentagon impact area on 9/11

Pentagon impact area on 9/11

Why would you continue to believe the 9/11 Pentagon attack was a terrorist attack when so many credible sources say it’s impossible for a 100 foot wide aircraft liner to leave an almost symmetrical 16 foot hole in the wake of its impact? It is totally absurd. A missile? Perhaps. Explosion? Perhaps. A Boeing 757 airliner, no, no and no!

If we believe the official explanation it means the aircraft would have had to fold back its wings then breach the outer wall and, according to  the pentagon, evaporate into thin air. The official story is that few engine parts or structural metals were found due to the speed of the aircraft. Sound vaguely familiar – you know the Twin Towers. How gullible do you have to be to swallow that lie?

Here are two videos that disprove the government’s explanation of what happened, just two documentaries out of hundreds, if not thousands. Use your brain, people. If 9/11 was a lie, then the war on terror is lie. If the war on terror is a lie, then the National Security Agency’s (NSA) justification to spy on every citizen in the United States in order to protect them is a lie. It also means that the Patriot Act which in effect reduces the Constitution to a meaningless historical document, is a lie. Add to that, the fact that just the day before, September 10, 2001, then Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, held a press conference announcing that over $2.3 trillion dollars of defense spending had been lost or were unaccounted for – wow! Conveniently, the part of the pentagon that was hit by the alleged Boeing 757, was the accounting department where several bookkeepers, accountants were killed and financial records were destroyed.

If the Constitution no longer protects our liberties, then our government is at war with the American people. If that is true, you have the duty to dispose of this administration (Obama knew 9/11 was an inside job and what does he do? He gives Bush total immunity from prosecution! Accessory after the fact.) as required and allowed under the Constitution of 1776. Beyond that, serious reform must take place in all branches of government to include the Executive, Judicial and Congressional branches.

“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

The Declaration of Independence

Citizen soldiers from 13 colonies went up against the most powerful nation in the world at that time - The British Empire.

Citizen soldiers from 13 colonies went up against the most powerful nation in the world at that time – the British Empire – and won!

In political philosophy, the right of revolution (or right of rebellion) is the right or duty, previously stated throughout history, of the people of a nation to overthrow a government that acts against their common interests. Belief in this right has been used throughout history to justify various rebellions, including the English Civil War, the American Revolution and the French Revolution.

Now think about it. The Arab Spring revolutions (Egypt, Iran, Syria, Libya, to name a few), where politically oppressed, poor uneducated people had the courage to risk their lives in order to live in freedom should inspire us to do likewise, but we cannot even get out of the mindset that we are somehow immune from tyranny, that America is exceptional and that our government would never lie to us. Sad, very sad.

Mind control is subtle, is designed to benefit those in power, and is pervasive in society

Mind-Control

As I count to 10 you will awake and remember nothing except the sounds and words that will trigger your response. One, two, three ..

The mainstream media operates on two basic principles. The first is related to the advertising principle of repetition, that being the direct opposite of “out of sight, out of mind.” Keep in mind (no pun intended) as I discuss these principles, that they only work if the media is tightly controlled and there is no alternative media that offers opposing points of view.

Keeping a product (or idea) in the public’s consciousness will eventually influence behavior. You may not “need” a newer automobile, but accepting it as a desirable goal (this is where sex and power is associated with a new car in most advertising) eventually takes hold, and your behavior must come into line with your thoughts and desires. You unconsciously start shopping for the latest gas guzzling SUV even though your conscious mind tells you it is an unnecessary expense, bad for the environment and benefits only the greedy oil and car making monopolies.

The second principle is the creation of social norms or “truisms” that are even more compelling than laws and statues that govern social interactions.

Depiction of an alien grey

Depiction of an alien grey

If your are told that alien abductions are mass hallucinations and the product of suggestible minds, you may tend to label any evidence of alien visitation as crazy or “tin hat” no matter the scientific validity of reported events and number of people who claim to have been abducted or have seen unidentified flying objects. Skeptics will always call for definitive “proof” of the existence of intelligent alien life forms, even in light of overwhelming evidence.  It’s never quite good enough, always a hoax which falls in line with the norm of social acceptance or in this case, non-acceptance.

For serious lay researchers, many scientists and astronauts, and a growing number of politicians the question is no longer do they exist and visit earth but what is their agenda or purpose, which has given rise to the study of Exopolitics. Of course secret government agencies know their agenda, but the general public is deemed to be too ignorant or incapable of knowing the truth. In fact, more than a few non-terrestrial species visit this particular planet, some beneficial in nature, but most with less altruistic motives. The particular species that shared with Hitler the technology needed to initiate and almost successfully win WWII, did not have very good intentions with respect to Mankind and unfortunately have now aligned themselves with another superpower.

The cooperative agreements between earth governments and highly advanced (technologically but not necessarily spiritually advanced) alien species includes conditions of non-disclosure to the public (secrecy), the sharing of alien advanced technology (primarily weapons technology), all in exchange for a secure base of operations and access to human subjects for the purpose of scientific study and genetic experimentation. I leave it to your imagination as to which superpowers have entered into agreements with extraterrestrials, but it includes those countries that have nuclear capabilities and have made astonishing and rapid advances in cybernetics, weapons technology, genetics and geo-engineering.

That JFK was killed by a lone gunman is another social ‘truism” created by the United States government with the help of the globalist controlled media, but fortunately one that is finally being torn down after 50 years of research and investigation by qualified independent researchers. We now know that as many as six shooters, possibly eight, were involved and situated on top of adjacent buildings, in rooms with unfettered views of the motorcade and even in a storm drain on Elm Street in Dealey Plaza that had a direct line of sight to Kennedy’s limo. Witnesses and participants in the assassination confirm all this, and much more, though none were called to testify before the Warren Commission that Lyndon B. Johnson assembled, members known to have hated JFK, most notably Allen Welsh Dulles, the former CIA Director who Kennedy fired for authorizing the Bay of Pigs (an invasion of Cuba in an attempt to kill Castro) fiasco without Kennedy’s knowledge or permission.

Similarly, if you are repeatedly told and subsequently come to believe that most people are quite willing to give up their personal freedoms in exchange for protection and security, you no longer see the surveillance of your home, activities and lifestyle as an infringement on your privacy but rather as part of the democratic process, after all, if you are doing nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide. Right? So how does one come to believe such a lie? Because the government controlled mainstream media has a constant stream of top level political advisers, Congressmen, security experts, many former generals and intelligence operatives, all telling the public that security comes at the price of individual liberties. It’s a trade off, they say.

In fact, this fallacious (not true) argument has been used by advocates of centralized forms of government ever since America gained its independence and was used with more intensity and frequency after the end of World War II when fascism, communism and Nazi forms of government attempted to kill the idea of a democratic or representative form of government. After all, sharing wealth and power with the masses has never been a very popular idea with the oligarchs (Dictionary Definition: A small group of people having control of a country, organization, or institution – “the ruling oligarchy of military men around the president”), colonial empires and the wealthy royal bloodlines of earlier centuries. America was an anomaly, an experiment that was not supposed to happen.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Joseph Goebbels, Director of Media and Propaganda for Hitler’s Third Reich

Up to that point, the only conflicts in the world were between equally corrupt competing families each wanting a larger share of the world’s crime syndicates or operations. The Medici family in Italy (during the Renaissance period) was an example of greed, intrigue and elitism at its best. Today the descendents of Medieval rulers continue to control the principle sources of wealth, i.e., oil, prostitution, and the production of weapons of war, etc. These mafia-style cabals are usually always in conflict with each other, cooperating only when a larger threat looms on the horizon, like the idealism of a John Kennedy and his brother, Robert Kennedy who threatened to dismantle their hold on the ignorant pliant masses. John and Robert Kennedy were doomed to be assassinated no matter how well protected they might have been. Too much was at stake, too many riches would have been lost.

The Federal Reserve is a central bank, meaning it controls the value of the dollar, can add to the national deficit, and regulate all financial transactions in the United States and countries with which it conducts commerce

The Federal Reserve is a central bank, meaning it controls the value of the dollar, can add to the national deficit, and regulate all financial transactions in the United States and countries with which it conducts commerce.

Who stood to benefit from Kennedy’s death? The CIA, which Kennedy proposed to dismantle because it was accountable to no one; J. Edgar Hoover who thought he had a lifetime appointment as director of the FBI, but who Kennedy had planned to “retire”; oil corporations who were going to lose significant government subsidies (millions of dollars); Lyndon Baines Johnson who became the next president and hated the “elite” Kennedy clan; the Mafia which was being relentlessly being prosecuted by the Department of Justice under Robert Kennedy, U.S. Attorney General; and the Federal Reserve which was and still is a private organization of powerful bankers that sets price controls, issues currency and establishes interest rates. Most people believe it is a government agency, but nothing is farther from the truth. It has never been audited, investigated or held accountable for the many the upheavals, depressions and recessions, that characterize our economy. Insider trading exists because of the Federal Reserve.

Marie Antoinette and Louis XIV, Queen and King of France, mid 18th Century.

Marie Antoinette and Louis XIV, Queen and King of France, mid 18th Century.

Marie Antoinette, Queen of France, allegedly said, “Let them eat cake,” before she and Louis XVI were beheaded following the French Revolution. By the way, French “cake” was not cake as we know it today, but rather plain bread of little substance or nourishment and that statement was a response to a comment by a royal adviser that the poor French were starving to death. Although initially liked by the French people, she was later criticized for her promiscuousness and lavish spending.

Although the United States Constitution offers no explicit privacy right, the Bill of Rights guarantees free expression, prevents unreasonable searches, and protects against self-incrimination, thus validating individual citizens’ personal integrity. In his Olmstead v. US (1928) dissent objecting to government wiretapping, Justice Louis Brandeis celebrated the “right to be let alone—the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men.” Brandeis realized that, in the 20th century, “subtler and more far-reaching means of invading privacy have become available to the Government.”

Please keep in mind this quote by Benjamin Franklin, “Those who give up their liberty for more security deserve neither liberty or security,” as you watch the video below where Obama “eloquently” defends NSA spying; however, eloquence is not truth nor honesty. In the hands of a chronic liar and psychopath, eloquence becomes a weapon of mass destruction.

George H. W. Bush: A pedophile, his father Prescott Bush a supporter of Hitler, and now an exposed sexual predator

I have, on at least three prior occasions, written posts that delve into the “alleged” lurid past of one of our former presidents, George Herbert Walker Bush (GHWB), the current but ailing patriarch of the Bush Family Dynasty – I refer to them as the Bush Family Crime Syndicate, certainly not in terms of endearment – but rather more like the Mafia Godfather who prepares his sons to take over the family business upon his death. This particular post references an article by Stew Webb, a contributor of Veterans Today.

In his life-time, George H. W. Bush (GHWB) has controlled every clandestine (hidden from view) and secret organization/operation within the arsenal of the United States government as either 1) Director of the CIA, 2) Vice President to Ronald Reagan (who was an unwitting puppet to the Bush controlled cabal – GHWB secretly gave Reagan poisons that hastened his fall into Alzheimer’s Disease and evidence suggests he helped plan Reagan’ attempted assassination by John Hinckley, whose family were close friends of the Bush family – a coincidence?) and 3) ultimately as President of the United States before Bill Clinton took office.

Clinton’s election was a planned transition of power to allow the NWO or New World Order advocated by Bush, Sr., to solidify and move forward after a more suitable puppet was elected President to carry out the New World Order Agenda (NWO) agenda – our current president, Barack Hussein Obama. Your deduction is right, GHWB left office willingly to promote the NWO by having Clinton elected (electronic voter fraud) and Perot neutralized! This is the power they currently possess. They are amazingly ruthless and efficient while amazingly arrogant and stupid at the same time.

Editor’s Note: For those of you who naively believe Bill Clinton to be an honest, untainted member of the political elite, I have news for you.  He was part of Bush’s drug smuggling and gun running operation during the Iran/Contra Scandal – both he and Hillary.  Just research “drugs, Mena and Clinton”.

CIA Drug Trafficking

Sarah McClendon, a former longtime White House correspondent always kept in the light Bill Clinton’s involvement, if not knowledge of the Mena, Arkansas drug trafficking operation, part of the Bush effort to destroy American values and make money at the same time. He is perhaps not as evil as GHWB, but certainly complicit, part of his life-long dream of becoming POTUS (President of the United States.)

It has even been alluded that GHWB denied presidents, during and after his tenure in office, access to sensitive data, such the the U.S. UFO files due to the fact they did not possess the proper security clearances. President Carter wanted to access those files due to his own experience of seeing a UFO but was denied access by the CIA. To this day, GHWB exercises undue influence within the CIA as he made sure he had loyal operatives at all levels, starting at the directorship. Then again he made sure he had damaging information on many key individuals, all else failing he “ordered their neutralization,” former CIA Director William Colby, being a notable example. The official finding was suicide.

He is known, by many government insiders, to be an openingly unabashed (doesn’t hide it among friends) pedophile, specifically referring to the Franklin Community Credit Union scandal in the 1980s which was a major national scandal that was covered-up by White House officials during the time GHWB was vice president to Reagan and later.

He is also a practicing satanist by many accounts (now very popular among the elite with their hand signs and T.V shows with satanic symbols and themes – Beyonce, one among many); a coward (during World War II); authorized the assassinations of democratically elected foreign leaders, as well as American citizens – most notably Ross Perot who ran against him as president – and used the CIA as a front for drug smuggling into the United States using military transport aircraft and ships, a practice that started with the Iran/Contra Scandal and later blossomed as a major source of black operations funding outside the congressional budget appropriations process where Congress controls the purse.

Post Script (P.S.)

“If the people knew what we had done, they would chase us down the street and lynch us.” — George H.W. Bush to journalist Sarah McClendon,

December 1992, in response to the question, “What will the people do if they ever find out the truth about Iraq-gate and Iran contra?”

A Bush Quote

Pretty shocking, if true, huh?

For a more detailed history of the Bush family going all the way back to their Germanic roots and their support of Adolf Hitler’s war machine (even after the U.S. entered WW II) go to my post, “Merchants of Death.

The reason I do this periodic review of the Bush presidencies (debaucheries) is to hopefully impress upon my readers the dangers of allowing corrupt, selfish and radical elites to control global economics and political processes.

A good example of this would be George Bush, Jr.’s testy response to criticism of his policies and military aggression in Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq, even though no evidence existed they were responsible or had weapons of mass destruction. In fact, Saddam Hussein believed he had Washington’s permission to invade Kuwait, the sole reason for Desert Storm, based on assurances by George H. W. Bush, then Vice President, who traveled to Iraq to meet with Saddam. All historical fact, reader.

To paraphrase “W’s” sentiments, “You are either with us or against us.”

That statement by itself is a negation, repudiation of independent thought and freedom of speech. He, in essence is saying, “It’s my way or the highway.” Little Georgie Bush or GW made that statement with total contempt and conviction. It is consistent with the attitude and feelings of an impulsive dictatorial leader, the type of national leader which still exist today in many underdeveloped regions like Africa and Asia, but were the rule instead of the exception during the Middle Ages, particularly in Europe during the Dark Ages, when kings and queens ruled and lived in castles.

Do you think they had castles to protect them from the armies of neighboring nations?  No, it was to protect them from their own common citizens, those whom they taxed into poverty. It takes a lot of the commoner’s money to live in luxury.

I still recall how “W,” GHWB’s son, was caught off guard by a television camera just before a press conference and basically lifted his middle finger at the camera lens with a that smirk which he loved to use when attempting to make what he thought was a really cool joke.

The following is a reprint of a recent article that appeared in Veterans Today (VT), a well-respected alternative news blog that has a staff of seasoned writers and editors, all veterans of sorts, and individuals (men and women) who have not only studied and researched government corruption but have lived it, and been their victims.

Stew Webb, is one of VT’s contributors and the author of this pedophile ring article, “George H. W. Bush Pedophile Sex Ring and Blackmail of Congress,” was a former globalist elite through marriage, that elite going by many names such as the Cabal, Masons, Jesuits, NWO and the Illuminati bloodline families, six of which dominate global politics, the Rothschilds being among the most influential. If you are not born into royalty, you are nobody. If you wonder why Congress is so ineffective against the Executive Branch of government, you need to study the “honey pot” strategies of blackmailers.

A unique aspect of this on-line journal (VT) is its intricate network of government insiders (aka, informants) that share sensitive information on past and future black operations that are contrary to our constitutional form of government (no longer, reader) or the common good.

If you read it in Veterans Today you can be assured the information has more than a kernel of truth, if not right on target as they are not opinions but information from trusted sources in government and the secret societies.

I would say, enjoy Stew’s article, but the topic is too sick to be called anything by an abomination to humanity.

The Franklin Cover Up is only the tip of the Iceberg, Veterans Today, 1/12/15
Article by Stew Webb

 

George H. W. Bush is a known evil pedophile, who ran a Congressional Blackmail Child Sex Ring during the 1980s known as “Operation Brownstone and Operation Brownstar”, and later to become known as “The Finders or The Franklin Cover-up”. U.S. Vice President George HW Bush would sneak children over to Senator Barney Frank’s condo, known as a “Brownstone” to their famous cocktail parties, where U.S. Congressman and U.S. Senators — some willing and some unwilling participants — got a taste of the “Voodoo Drug” in their drink. (Editor’s Note: It is interesting that George H. W. Bush used the term “Voodoo Economics,” a slanderous term used by George H. W. Bush in reference to President Ronald Reagan’s economic policies, which came to be known as “Reaganomics”.

To prove a case, you need one that was involved in an operation or a witness or documents; in this case, U.S. Customs documents prove the case without getting anyone still living killed. Inside the (scribe) document below is an article that appeared in US News and World report December 27 1993, entitled “Through a Glass Very Darkly”. This includes cops, spies and a very old investigation — also copies of the U.S. Customs Reports where the names are not blacked out.

You may have purchased a set with the names blacked out from dirty FBI-CIA blackmailer Ted Gunderson, a known thief, liar and killer — a true “Daddy Bush FBI Troll, who surfaced in the 1990s to run cover for Bush and to identify those children who still may be living, who could be a liability to Bush, Gunderson and CIA George Pender’s Congressional Child Sex Blackmail Operation known as “Brownstar”.

Ted Gunderson surfaced in the early 1990s as the so-called investigator in the Franklin Savings and Loan case against Larry King a Black Republican, who introduced George HW Bush at the 1988 Republican Convention as America’s next President. Ted Gunderson was there to get rid of any witnesses or children from “Boys Town”, an orphanage for all boys, many of whom had been transported to Washington DC and raped by these pedophiles in Bush-Gunderson-Pender Child Sex Ring known as “Operation Brownstar”.

The true story never has been told that children from orphanages all across America during the 1980s came to Washington DC, paid by the US Taxpayers, to unknowingly participate in the Congressional Blackmail Child Sex Ring. Daddy Bush, Dick Cheney, John Sununu, according to sources, would be standing in line to greet the children and their caretakers as they came to the Vice President’s Home and or the White House for their specially invited tour at US Government expense. Bush, Cheney and Sununu would ask, “what’s your name”, and later just before dinner time, a call from the White House came into the hotel where the children were staying to the Caretakers inviting Little Billy, Mary, Johnny, Timmy, and Pam to the White House State dinner that evening.

The caretakers thought it would be good for the children, since the White House could not accommodate the entire orphanage. Gunderson and Pender, who ran the operation, dispatched the limo at Bush’s request, and the female would take the children to the limo and immediately give them a Coke or Pepsi with the VOODOO DRUG in it, and they were off to U.S. Senator Barney Frank’s pad, known as a “Brownstone”.

Of course, the U.S. Senators and U.S. Reps were there with the good-looking female prostitutes who would help get the congressmen and senators drunk on the “VOODOO DRUG”, so when Daddy Bush, Dick Cheney, John Sununu and others showed up at the party and the children in the limo arrived, the female prostitutes left and the child sex party started, with U.S. Vice President George HW Bush, Richard Cheney, John Sununu and others showing the VOODOO drunk congressman and senators how to have sex raping children, while the cameras were running. Someone pretending to be from the White House would call the caretakers back at the hotel and would tell them the children fell asleep and are staying the night here at the White House and will be returned before lunch tomorrow.

The caretakers did not suspect a thing until 6 months later when their children were sitting in front of the TV watching the News and waiting for dinner, when many would jump up and point to the TV and say “He put his thing in me”, as the children pointed to either their rectum or the female side. These caretakers began to ask questions and did not know whom to call. Some called “People Magazine”, which spent a million dollars investigating all of America’s orphanages and found this was true, with those children selected out at the White House being greeted by these known pedophiles: Bush, Cheney and Sununu.

The story was never told by “People Magazine”. The Journalist I talked to on many occasions in the late 1980s and early 1990s was never allowed to publish the story.

Now you know the full story.

More about the Bush Family …

If you were in the Marine Corps the name Smedley Butler is synonymous to Brave, Patriot, Leader and Corps. He was the recipient of two Medals of Honor.

In 1933, Wall Street bankers wanting to overthrow the Presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt decided to approach retired General Butler to lead the rebellion, coup, or takeover of America just before Hitler came to power, all in order to set up a fascist government that would join forces with Hitler, much as Mussolini did.

Butler pretended to go along to get evidence and more information about who the plotters were. Eventually, he revealed the conspiracy to the United States House of Representatives Special Committee on Un-American Activities.

Among the principal plotters/traitors was Prescott Bush, George W. Bush’s grandfather.


More on Prescott Bush’s efforts to help finance the German war effort is found in my post, “Merchants of Death.

Is it time to chase them down the street and lynch them?


Ferguson, Boston and New York: Examples of police brutality

The excerpt below is from an article from “The Daily Beast,” a popular news reporting and opinion website which is affiliated with Newsweek.com, the online version of Newsweek Magazine.

Of late, I have seen a more than an average number of police brutality cases, the abuse of authority by government entities, and a general increase of community/police conflicts often leading to civil disturbance and the subsequent arrest of citizens who protest the actions taken whether it is a police initiated shooting, sexual assaults by police officers, harassment of the homeless, or racial profiling. Ferguson, Missouri is just one example of thousands nationwide. These are no doubt under-reported.

Police abuse by type

Police abuse by type

A woman who was consigned to the correctional staff at the Ferguson jail after being pulled over for an expired license plate and giving a false name on Oct. 9, 2013.

The woman is identified only by the initials J.W. in court papers from a subsequent federal civil-rights lawsuit. She is described as having been “in her work clothes, that is, nursing scrubs,” as Hayden commenced to fingerprint her and take her mug shot.

J.W. heard Hayden say softly, ‘You smell good,’” the papers report. “Hayden softly said words to the effect, ‘This will teach you a lesson.’”

“The city has taken inadequate steps or no steps at all to control the violent acts of its law-enforcement personnel.”
The papers note that J.W. had never met Hayden before. She was placed in a cell and Hayden told her that she also had outstanding traffic warrants in other jurisdictions. He repeatedly walked past her cell.

“J.W. was distraught and said words to the effort of, ‘Let me go… I haven’t done anything wrong… I just don’t have money to get my plates,’” the papers report. “Hayden said words to the effect of, ‘Be quiet… Others will hear.’”

The report goes on, “J.W. sensed that Hayden was acting in a sexually provocative manner toward her. J.W. did not respond… J.W. told Hayden that she was several months pregnant. J.W.’s pregnancy was showing.”

J.W. then informed Hayden that she was suffering “pain and discharges.” Hayden checked with a superior and summoned an ambulance. The EMTs checked J.W. and said it was up to Hayden whether she was released into their custody.

“Hayden did not indicate a decision in J.W.’s presence,” the papers say. “Hayden and the EMTs left the room. J.W. never saw the EMTs again.”

Salvation must have seemed at hand when J.W.’s boyfriend arrived and posted the necessary bond to free her on the new Ferguson charges. Hayden removed J.W. from her cell and had her sign some official forms.

“Hayden began to make remarks with words to the effect of, ‘You’re the type of girl that can get me in trouble,’” the papers report.

The papers go on to note: “J.W. was crying. J.W. kept asking to go home. J.W. said, ‘I will do anything to go home.’”

The papers emphasize, “By that remark J.W. did not intend to deliver the message that she would have sex with Hayden in exchange for release. The remark was in the nature of a rhetorical statement while in an emotional state of extreme distress.”

Hayden continued to say that J.W. had outstanding warrants. J.W. had no way of knowing that he had not notified any of those other jurisdictions that she was in custody.

“J.W. was in great fear,” the papers report. “Hayden said, ‘Follow me.’”

The papers allege that Hayden escorted J.W. down a number of hallways.

“Hayden took J.W. into a boiler room in the City of Ferguson jail,” the papers charge. “Hayden then unbuttoned his pants, removed his penis.”

The papers report that J.W. was too afraid to resist his command for her to perform oral sex on him. She nonetheless seems to have proved herself the wrong woman to assault.

“J.W. captured some of Hayden’s pubic hairs in her hand,” the papers report.

She held on to the hair as Hayden led her further back into the boiler room.

“Hayden then had J.W. bend over and he indicated that he was going to have intercourse with her,” the papers say. “Because she was afraid, J.W. did not resist.”

The papers suggest that Hayden was careful not to leave any DNA-laden material.

“Hayden ejaculated in his hand,” the papers allege. “Hayden then released J.W. from jail custody via a side door to the building… Hayden told J.W. words to the effect of, ‘Run and stay close to the building.’”

The papers suggest that this was to avoid security cameras. Hayden might well have imagined he had no further worries, that he was at the very worst in the realm of “he said, she said.” He does not seem to have anticipated that she could have maintained such remarkable presence of mind.

There are a couple of other instances of encroaching surveillance and control that I will mention and link to for you to further investigate.

TankOne is a situation in which James Prigoff, a 74 year old professional photographer who went to Boston, MA to take pictures to include a well-known landmark, a rainbow colored water tank, and subsequently approached by two security guards who told him he could not take pictures, citing that fact that the water tank was on private property.

Never mind that Prigoff was not on the property which was fenced off, but rather quite a distance away and on public property. Much to his surprised Prigoff was later contacted by an agent of the federal Joint Terrorism Task Force who informed Prigoff that he was reported via SAR, the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative. It became apparent that the security guards at the water tank had taken his license plate number and reported it to federal authorities. The ACLU has taken the case and is suing the SAR initiative under Gill V. DOJ.

The entrance to Grant's Cottage requires you go by the closed prison facility

The entrance to Grant’s Cottage requires you go by the closed prison facility

NewsChannel 13 reporter, Mark Mulholland, and his photographer, Matt Soriano, were in Wilton, NY taking video of Grant’s Cottage, a historical site, when a correctional lieutenant approach the Mulholland and Soriano and told them to vacate the premises.

Why? Because a vacated former asylum and prison was in the background. After a verbal alterc ation, the reporters were advised that they would be arrested if they did not turn over the film. After tense negotiations they were allowed to keep their film but were denied access to the historical site. Wow! Freedom of the press!!

What does all this mean?

There has been a sea change in how law enforcement operates in this country, at all levels. We are no longer free to visit public places or take film in situations that they consider sensitive. What are they trying to hide? The Obama administration has this policy of arming local police with military equipment and weapons, only appropriate in a combat situations. Police agencies are either not screening applicants for unstable mental conditions and may, in fact, be hiring aggressive and violent officers in order to prepare for crowd control. I know why, but it is for you to figure out.

Years ago I remember telling people that martial law was coming to America and they were incredulous (could not believe it). More and more they are beginning to realize that this is a very real possibility.

In Nazi Germany, average citizens were told it was their civic duty to report anyone they considered as acting suspiciously. Children were turning in their parents. The SAR program is doing the same thing. Guards in Nazi concentration camps were free to rape Jewish women, kill anyone that failed to work hard enough, and treated all with disrespect and distain. Jews were not human and deserved to die – in the millions.

This author happens to live near Albuquerque, NM, so I can attest to the community’s reaction to a police force (APD) that is clearly abusive. Thankfully the DOJ made the city of Albuquerque sign an agreement that would enforce specific reforms to reduce the incidence of police brutality – and brutal it has been.

Whenever I have ocassion to visit that city, I make sure my brakelights and signals work for fear that I might be stopped for a minor traffic infraction that might escalate to something worse. You see, I am of Mexican heritage and while that should not matter, after all I am a former Marine Captain who saw combat in Vietnam and am well educated, it does matter to certain officers of the Albuquerque Police Department.

Obama is a saboteur

0-melting-ice-sheets101Either “Barry Soetoro” is a weak, indecisive and ineffective leader or he is a puppet on a string(s) being pulled by hidden forces whose aim is not strengthening America’s role in the world, but tarnishing its image as the most respected, moral leader of the free world.

They (Obama and company) want dictatorships established in the U.S. and the rest of the world. Again, the establishment of a New World Order is the primary motivation for all the chaos the world is experiencing – it’s all orchestrated.

In either case, Barry is a saboteur. A saboteur secretly performs acts of destruction or damage deliberately so that it does not work correctly. Barry does not want America to work correctly, so that he and his handlers are justified in declaring martial law, and as a consequence take our personal weapons away, limit our freedom of speech and our right to practice our religious beliefs without government control and influence.

Here is what I see:

  • An increased use of “false flags” to scare the American public to accepting total gun control as in the United Kingdom.
  • Discrimination against Christian conservative organizations via selective scrutiny by the IRS in order to silence his critics.
  • Lying to the American people to enact his privatization of health care in the U.S. – “You can keep your doctor, if you want to.”
  • Falsely elected on promises he never intended to keep, i.e., protect whistleblowers, close Guantanamo, work with Congress to protect our Constitutional form of government – Barry governs by “executive order,” he is, in effect, a dictator now.
  • Under his direct order, he expanded the surveillance of the ordinary American citizen via the NSA and other spy organizations, such as the CIA and FBI. He merely picked up after George Bush left office.
  • He secretly provides funding to known terrorist organizations to perpetuate the lie of the “War on Terror.” – That was the story behind Benghazi, a story that has never publically been told, but which most Washington insiders know to be true.

Keep giving “Barry” the benefit of the doubt if you want, but personally, I think this man should have never been elected and now that he is in office, he ought to be impeached.

 

 


Two intellectuals discuss “the resistance”

“Chris Hedges speaks with Professor Noam Chomsky about working-class resistance during the Industrial Revolution, propaganda, and the historic role played by intellectuals in times of war.” From Dandelion Salad article, Chris Hedges Asks Noam Chomsky: What’s The New Paradigm For Resistance?

Chris Hedges is a prolific writer and lecturer who has sued the government for the takeover of Fannie Mae, the mortgage giant and further has sued President Barack Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta to challenge the legality of the “Authorization for Use of Military Force” as embedded in the latest version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), signed by the president Dec. 31, 2011.

Detainees pray at the U.S. military detention facility known as Camp Bucca in Iraq in this 2009 photo.

The act authorizes the military in Title X, Subtitle D, entitled “Counter-Terrorism,” for the first time in more than 200 years, to carry out domestic policing. With this bill, which took effect March 3, 2011, the military can indefinitely detain without trial any U.S. citizen deemed to be a terrorist or an accessory to terrorism. And suspects can be shipped by the military to our offshore penal colony in Guantanamo Bay and kept there until “the end of hostilities.” It is a catastrophic blow to civil liberties.

Noam Chomsky is a well known academician who publically criticizes the policies of the current administration and is the author of countless books and a much demanded lecturer in colleges and universities.

For those of you who find intellectual discussion either boring or difficult, the one point that Chomsky makes that makes perfect sense for all to understand is that authoritarian governments use the concept of “manufactered consent” to implement unpopular or questionable policies.

It is an information war, one in which the state controls the media, the educational system and the legislative process which governs the middle and lower classes. Of course, from my vantage point this means that government will do whatever it takes to accomplish its agenda, even the creation of “false flag” events that the public will see as justification for the loss of their liberties. To authoritarian governments lying to their citizens is a means to an end and the general public is merely an observer and never a participant in the “Democratic process.”

The corporate take over of the net – the attack on our liberties continues

45454Net Neutrality is what keeps the Internet as we know it alive: It keeps powerful Internet companies from singlehandedly killing websites by making them impossibly slow.

For example: without Net Neutrality, your local cable company could simply decide the website of a political candidate you support will start loading 0.001% as fast as the other candidate’s website, because they can; or heavily disable a political organizing tool online that’s being used to topple dictatorships abroad, or even fighting bank bailouts at home.

ISPs or Internet Service Providers, like Verizon, can promote content that they own, and undermine content from their competitors. They can shake down start-ups and artists and blogs for fees — and put them out of business if they don’t pay up.

The FCC is now moving to end Net Neutrality, and we must move urgently if we wish to stop them.

Representatives Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva, co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, are circulating a congressional letter to the FCC demanding the restoration of Net Neutrality. But to fully make the case, they need as many citizen co-sponsors as possible before the FCC meets again this week.

That’s where you come in — you need to become a citizen co-signer of the Letter To Restore Net Neutrality, to show the FCC and lawmakers who might sign on just how much support there is for Net Neutrality.

GO TO THIS LINK TO SIGN THE PETITION

Don’t stop there, send your congressional representative an email demanding, yes demanding, they vote to restore net neutrality.  Click on the tab, “Take Action Now” at the top of this page to search for your legislator by state of zip code.  If you are not a U.S. resident, call your ISP or Internet Provider and tell them that if net neutrality is violated you will find a different provider.  It will alert them to your interest in and concern about corporate excess.

Up to this point you may have read about issues you care about, but here is an opportunity to actually do something – to fight back.


Do you have the courage to tell the truth knowing your own goverment will try and destroy you?

thWNY69LIA“How far would you go to tell the truth?

That is the question posed by the new documentary Silenced, which follows three national security whistleblowers who fight to reveal the darkest corners of America’s war on terror while enduring the wrath of a government increasingly determined to maintain secrecy.

The three are former Justice Department lawyer Jesselyn Radack, former senior National Security Agency official Thomas Drake, and former CIA officer John Kiriakou. On the heels of the film’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, we speak with director James Spione about the extraordinary lengths the government has gone to in order to wreak havoc on the whistleblowers’ personal lives through a sustained campaign of intimidation and harassment.” (excerpt)

NSA tracks innocent citizens, not terrorists, to what ends?

snowEdward Snowden was invited by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to address the activities of NSA in Europe and worldwide. In this presentation he revealed NSA’s monitoring of general population behavior via computer web cams, cables and malware. The technology exists now to track an individual’s sexual habits, orientation, travel movements, donations made, with whom individuals share pictures of their children, even what websites an individual might visit and recorded and analyzed using algorithms designed for such purposes.

Much of the information is made available to law enforcement agencies at a national, state and local level as a means of enforcing laws within their areas of jurisdiction. It should be noted that these activities are as far removed from terrorist activities as the North Pole is from the Sahara Desert.

He emphasized the point that there currently exists no legal means to challenge mass surveillance, a point that was followed by a plea to all nations concerned with privacy to develop international standards to prevent the abuse of this technology. This is a global problem requiring global solutions.

When the power of the federal government meets the determination of a Nevada rancher

April 2014

The Bundy family in Nevada recently found out that being targeted by snipers can be as easy as recording a video.

article-2601140-1CDF71BA00000578-515_306x423

Cliven Bundy has grazed his cattle on his land since birth, but the BLM has taken the land and insisted he must pay for grazing rights.

The incident took place at a Clark County ranch, near Bunkerville NV, currently in dispute by its owner, Cliven Budy, and the federal government. Though rancher contends the land is his by birthright, the Bureau of Land Management insists it is now the property of the government. It has levied substantial fees against Bundy for the right to use the land and, taking a stand against federal overreach, he has refused to pay.

Bundy claims he is willing to face whatever punishment he must to protect his property and the rights of American citizens.

Bundy’s cattle being rounded up by BLM officers

 

 

 

BLM officers are now in the process of corralling his cattle and, to deal with Bundy supporters who visit the scene, have set up two ‘First Amendment areas’ within which free speech is permitted. Such limitations to the constitutional rights of Americans are becoming frustratingly common and, in this case, resulted in a family being targeted by snipers and at least one individual facing criminal charges.

Local reports indicate members of the landowner’s family stopped along a state highway to film the cattle roundup. Even though the BLM contends the disputed land being filmed is off-limits, Ryan Bundy explained he and his family “were on the state highway, not even off of the right-of-way.”

The unarmed family was quickly surrounded by 11 BLM response vehicles carrying twice as many federal agents.

“They also had four snipers on the hill above us all trained on us,” Ryan Bundy added. “We were doing nothing besides filming the area.”

article-2601140-1CC20CF000000578-574_634x422

As the incident draws national attention, the government has designated an area, “First Amendment Rights Area” and any protests not within this area are considered illegal.

Officials warned them that they were in violation of the law by exercising their rights outside of the prescribed locations.

When Dave Bundy did not respond to demands to move in a timely enough manner, he was subjected to a harrowing experience.

“He was filming and talking on the phone,” his brother Ryan said, “I don’t know to whom. It happened pretty fast. They came down on him hard and had a German Shepherd on him. And then they took him.”

Cliven, Dave’s father, tried to find out where his son was taken, Ryan explained, and was told to “get off the phone or he would be arrested.”

He said the family is still unsure what charges his brother is facing.

This story portrays a very disturbing narrative regarding Americans’ disappearing rights. Not only have federal agents reportedly snatched a man’s property after declaring the government owns it; his son was allegedly attacked and arrested for trying to document the process.

Family Faces Sniper Rifles For Holding Camera

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval (a retired Federal Judge) has inserted himself into the escalating standoff between cattle rancher Cliven Bundy and federal officials by blasting the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over their creation of a ‘First Amendment Area’ outside of which free speech is banned.

“Most disturbing to me is the BLM’s establishment of a ‘First Amendment Area’ that tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution,” said Sandoval in a statement. “To that end, I have advised the BLM that such conduct is offensive to me and countless others and that the ‘First Amendment Area’ should be dismantled immediately.”

A call for independence by all the people of the world

th7C6M8W1KThe latest report from Kiev in the Ukraine is the shock of protesters on seeing the mansion of former Ukraine President Yanukovych.  Marble floors, statues, crystal chandeliers, a private golf course and much more.

What peoples of the world must realize is that only corruptible leaders are placed into positions of power.  It matters not whether those leaders are Democrats or Republicans, Russian or English, Chinese or Korean.  If they are not wealthy already, they soon will be as special interest insure their allegiance through blackmail or bribery so that their agenda is followed by puppet leaders.

I am calling for peoples of the world to rise in rebellion against those that would enslave them.  We have a very powerful tool in the social media worldwide.  We have seen how using the channels of communication found in Facebook and Twitter, dictators have been toppled.  So why not organize a people’s movement for liberty and equality.  Let us all be of one mind, one voice and one conviction.  All we need is a small group of computer programmers to develop a world citizen media mechanism that people can join and support.

Entrance to the elegant mansion owned by former president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych

No longer should we tolerate the likes of Barrack Obama, George W. Bush or George H.W. Bush.  Putin must go as should the corrupt presidents and prime ministers of England, France, Germany and the EU.  It’s time for ordinary citizens to shout, “Enough is enough!”

Now revolutions need not be violent but they usually are due to the over-reaction of the powers-that-be. Give them a reason to unleash the might of their weaponry on you and they will.  Remember, your goal are the centers of power and the police forces are but pawns in this game of chess. They are master chess players so you must anticipate every move and never lose sight of the Queen and King.  Checkmate.

La Fayette, the French general who served under George Washington once said, “Insurrection is the most sacred of the rights and the most indispensable of the duties.”  It is your God-given right to rid the world of tyrants, dictators and bankers.

  • No longer chose the lesser of two evils.  Organize and write-in your candidate of choice
  • Take most of your money out of the banks and use cash where possible.  It will avoid tracking by NSA and reduce the service charges of large banks
  • Do not patronize stores that carry inferior products.  This include major chains like Wal Wart, Target, and other franchises.  Chinese products are dangerous to your health and that of your children
  • Grow a garden for your fruits and vegetables
  • Do not buy GMOs and require all products that contain them to be labeled as GMO products
  • Fight any legislation that prohibits your right to be self-sufficient
  • Form organizations in your community to educate yourselves and fight city hall
  • Threaten your legislators with impeachment if they vote against the will of the people consistently
  • Fight to reverse the Citizens United decision wherein corporations were allowed to give large amounts to political campaigns
  • Limit terms of politicians rather than allowing them to spend the remainder of their lives in office
  • Introduce legislation to limit the tenure of Supreme Court Justices to four years, like any other official – they have become too powerful and are not accountable to anyone
  • Have human rights groups organize across borders just as multinational corporations extend their tentacles to include many nations
  • If Obama declares martial law, refuse to recognize it as a legitimate act of government.  Only dictators use this tactic usually after a false flag operation, like 9/11
  • Allow more than two political parties to present serious candidates
  • Raise the penalty of fraud and corruption by elected officials include a minimum of 10 years in prison plus fines and bar them from future public service
  • Abolish the Federal Reserve after an audit of its transactions and its role in the bank bailouts
  • Return the voting process back to individually marked ballots.  Electronic ballots invite fraud by hackers and is the reason that “W” won Florida

Vigilantes take law into their own hands

In an age where greed rules and the core values of service-to-others are substituted by the values of service-to-self, the common man finds himself without champion, without protector and at the mercy of the powerful where might is right and where the golden rule means he who has the gold makes the rules .

Capitol_hill

Capitol Hill, where Congress meets and acts

The “elected leaders” of our democracy profess to serve the public’s interest while at the same time receiving gifts, favors and special privilege, not only for themselves but for their families, friends and associates.  The number of active lobbyists with prior government experience has nearly quadrupled since 1998, rising to 1,846 in Capitol Hill, alone.  Is it any wonder that congressional staffers, those responsible for writing the laws that govern industry are susceptible to corporate influence knowing full well that if deemed sufficiently compliant a six-figure salary awaits them at the end of their tenure on Capitol Hill.

Haves and Have nots

It is in such a manner that divisions of class are formed widening the gap between the haves and have nots, the very rich against the very poor and with it the disappearance of compassion, mentorship and ultimately, love, yes love for your fellow man.

In a land where once leaders were judged by their treatment of the less fortunate, we have instead a punitive judicial system, restrictions on freedom of expression, excessive taxation of the poor and tax exemption for the rich, regulation of the masses through trivial laws and deregulation of large corporate interests solely for the maximization of profit.

I mention the state of our Democracy that it might serve as a backdrop to a little publicized social movement ocurring in the highlands of Michoacán, Mexico.  Mexico is a ravaged country, ravaged by murderous drug cartels, a corrupt government, a system of institutionalized “mordidas” or payoffs that invades every sector of the economy, governmental and non-governmental.

Mexican vigilantes behind sandbag barrier

In the state of Michoacán, in the western part of the country, armed citizens have risen up to directly confront the tyranny of organized crime.  In recent years, colluding with corrupt local authorities, a narco group called The Family of Michoacán (La Familia Michoacana) acquired great power and huge profits, mostly from making methamphetamine in labs hidden in the harsh mountains of the state. It boasted a primitive, pseudo-religious ideology and claimed to be concerned with bettering the lives of the citizens of Michoacán. A rival, splinter group, the Knights Templar (Los Caballeros Templarios), characterized by similar “religious” ideology and consummate brutality, has now muscled them aside.

These Mexican vigilantes had enough of the intimidations and killings. They went as far as establishing road blocks and barriers to their villages to keep both corrupt law enforcement and drug cartel operatives out of their areas.  These armed “self-defense” groups began to appear in Michoacán in February 2013. Their members come from various walks of life, including small ranchers, business people and emigrants returning from the United States.

By relating this story, I am not proposing the establishment of a citizen’s vigilante movement in America, but merely to point out that there is always a solution to the problem of tyranny.  We are not helpless.  Given the proper circumstances, a quiet peaceful people will become fearless fighters, fighting for their way of life, for their children and for Freedom.
