The Blaze is reporting that during President Barack Obama’s speech held in Maryland at a Democratic campaign rally, crowd members, almost exclusively of an audience made up Blacks headed for the exits as Obama began to speak. Reuters reported  that this act  “underscored his continuing unpopularity”.

Obama 1

Most Democratic candidates have had the good sense to avoid Obama like he has Ebola. However, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who’s running for governor, is not one of them.

As Obama spoke at the rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington, a “steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium,” Reuters reported. Obama was heckled as he attempted on behalf of Anthony Brown.

Obama Rally 1

More hecklers attacked the President. Race is not a significant issue when it comes to assessing the lethality of the Obama presidency when it comes to his administration.  Thank God that these Americans exercised their First Amendment right to voice their displeasure and fear of a President who is clearly every American’s most significant threat.  This is a case of Americans banding together and saying in unison, “Enough”!  From three thousand miles away, I lend my voice in support as should all Americans.

We desperately need to band together as Americans to stand up to the globalist tyranny being perpetrated against the American people by this administration. God bless these wonderful and brave people for their bravery and commitment to our ideals as Americans. Let this be a rallying cry. It might be too late but, by God, we can sure as hell try and follow the example of these people.

Obama Rally 2

As we sit here in our homes and bemoan the fact that Obama has imperiled the nation due to his mishandling of the Ebola crisis by not shutting down air travel from West Africa, we lose sight of the fact that Obama has been public enemy number one since the inception of his Presidency.

Many of us in the alternative media have long pointed out how this politically inept and inexperienced man has illegitimately occupied the White House.

Since Obama took office in January of 2009, America has been under the most serious and constant barrage of blitzkrieg attacks in her entire history. Not only was Obama grossly under qualified to be president based upon his experience, he was not eligible to even run for the highest office in the land.

The following article summarizes many of the documented issues I have raised, in only the past several weeks, about President Obama and his subsequent leadership failures.

In the spirit of Thomas Jefferson accusing King George of his crimes against the American colonists, I bring forth a summary of the same kinds of charges against King Obama. I would ask that if you agree with ANY of the following allegations, that you share your concerns with your friends and family and then draft a letter to your Congressman imploring him/her to draw up articles of impeachment against Obama for treason and sedition. Encourage your friends and family to do the same.With these kinds of events happening in places like Maryland, the worm has turned. We have a chance for a push back in the brief window left before these midterm elections.

Can America Name One Positive Thing That Obama Has Done for the American Middle Class?

Forward

I think all of us would be hard-pressed to find an individual who could tell us with a straight face what Obama has done to help the American middle class. In fact, when we take a look at the Obama administration and its misguided policies, this administration has created a wide swath of destruction towards the American people reminiscent of what General Sherman did to the South in his now infamous “March to the Sea” during the Civil War.

The Military

Any discussion about the welfare of the nation must begin an end with an analysis of military strengths and weaknesses. Generally speaking, an athletic team is only as good and performs only as well, as the quality of coaches leading that team. The same can be said for the military. Along these lines, Obama has decimated the leadership of the military.

Since the beginning of 2013, he has fired 16 naval commanders and a much greater number of generals when it comes to the combined forces of the Marine Corps and the Army. Never before in the history of this country has a president so devastated a theater of war such as Obama has done, in Afghanistan, where he has removed commanders, one right after the other.

Military

Obama has replaced these commanders with less experienced subordinates, thus, tremendously weakening our military.

For the first time in American history, Obama has allowed Russian troops to train on American soil. And this “training” comes on the heels of when Russia threatened to nuke America if it dared to invade Iran. Based upon the Russian 2012 threat, America should be in a constant state of military readiness, not be training Russian soldiers who are self-declared enemies of the American people.

Even more incredibly, Obama has directed FEMA to engage in a bilateral agreement to train 15,000 Russian troops on American soil. This makes no absolutely no sense whatsoever. Why would a domestic emergency response agency be training with Russian combat soldiers? There can only be one answer; These troops are going to be needed for the enforcement of the upcoming martial law which will include participating in typical FEMA disaster activities such as food and water distribution, relocation to “housing centers”, etc. Based on this unwarranted agreement between FEMA and the Russians, many of us have concluded that Obama is going to use these troops to engage in gun confiscation and all the very bad things that could follow such an action.

At a time when America has been threatened with nuclear annihilation, Obama has gone so far as to remove the two leaders of our nuclear arsenal by using such ridiculous allegations as one of the men was using a counterfeit poker chip. If this president has time to consider what constitutes a counterfeit poker chip in a harmless poker game, he is spending too much time on the golf course and not enough time doing his job. What is more likely, is that this is a deliberate move to weaken the leadership of our nuclear arsenal leadership. As a result, our national security has been compromised and all Americans are less safe today than they were six years ago when Obama assumed the presidency?

These are the actions of a traitor.

Devastating Our Healthcare

The magic number for healthcare appears to be just under three, because just about three times our present cost is what most people, being forced to pay to convert to Obamacare. I pay just under $500 a month to insure my family. When I went online and used the Obamacare cost calculator, I discovered that I would be paying over $1300 a month for my family’s health care.

I remember listening to the Hannity radio show as he was interviewing LA attorney, Jennifer Hudson, who is four months pregnant. Hudson stated she was dropped from her health carrier and that Obamacare was going to cost her more than three to four times when she is presently paying.

Didn’t Obama say ” if you like your healthcare, and you like your doctor, you get to keep your healthcare and you get to keep your doctor under my health care.” Didn’t this Manchurian candidate also say ” a family of four is going to save an average of $2500 per year under my plan”.

There are so many lies tied up in Obama’s previous two statements, that it is difficult to know where to begin. Let’s just suffice it to say that at least 16 million Americans are going to be forced to convert to Obamacare and that doesn’t even begin to cover the number of private healthcare carriers who are going to dump their insured customers in order to save themselves the expense of providing an ever-expanding healthcare coverage under Obamacare rules and regulations. Further, most Americans who are converting to Obamacare are suffering from sticker shock. And for those who can’t afford the new premiums, well…, they will just have to go to jail under Obamacare regulations which requires each citizen to carry the federally mandated coverage.

Why isn’t the corporate-controlled mainstream media asking Obama why are over 1,300 of his preferred corporate campaign providers and their employees exempted from mandatory participation in Obamacare? Why isn’t the media asking Obama why he and Congress are not forced to use the very same “health product” that they have forced down the throats of American citizens? This is a clear case of rules for thee, but not for me. If the American people were fully aware of the duplicitous nature of Obamacare, there would be an erosion of confidence in government, even above and beyond the record levels of unhappiness we are witnessing today. When people lose respect for leaders and their policies, an air of civil disobedience rears its ugly head. This is why the corporate controlled media will never challenge the president on these issues. This is a communist takeover by stealth.

Attacks Upon Our Food and Water

I have previously documented how Obama is moving to control the food supply in the United States. The Obama forces have swat-teamed the Amish, raw milk producers and several private food producers, while leaving the large corporate farms alone.

After making 50 million Americans dependent upon food stamps, Obama is allowing Congress to make significant cuts among this vulnerable population group, with no transition period, and Obama could have prevented this action with an Executive Order. I am not in favor of the welfare state. However, as one cannot expect a heroin addict to quit the drug by going cold turkey, we cannot expect 50 million poor people to make this kind of adjustment with no transition period. I believe that this is a provocative strategy designed to get protesters in the streets where all resistance will be crushed and Obama’s Bolshevik revolution can continue unabated.

Under Obama’s leadership, the EPA is using their self-proclaimed power to control water. And when one controls the flow and usage of water, one also controls property rights as well as food production. The EPA has announced that they control all forms of water ranging from streams, lakes, rivers, oceans, standing water, well water and water of any variety regardless of the source. This is the underlying impetus which is providing the motivation for the two counties in northern California to withdraw from California.

The Deindustrialization of the United States

Since Obama has been elected president, he has been on a mission to impose the phony science of global warming which serves to justify his extreme control of all industry and personal usage of energy. Unable to get his cap and trade policies through the Congress, Obama has begun to implement his agenda through executive orders at the state and local level. Hence, we are starting to see some citizen push back in the previously mentioned California and Oregon situations.

From my research on the Gulf oil explosion, I learned that Obama was once a member of the Joyce Foundation along with Al Gore and Valerie Jarrett. Together, the three parties created the Chicago Climate Exchange which was designed to be a $10 trillion dollar venture to administrate all cap and trade within the United States. I believe that this why Obama was selected to be president by the bankers.

As I have documented in recent articles, if Obama has his way, we will be living in an 1880’s hellish nightmare reminiscent of the opening scene of the movie, The Hunger Games.

Economic Devastation

Under Obama, he has increased deficit spending by a factor of more than two, when his major campaign promise was to balance the budget. Even more disturbing, under Obama’s watch, the government is setting up to steal retirement accounts as I have documented that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has begun to “borrow” from select federal retirement accounts.

More disturbing is the fact that Obama has done nothing about the mammoth derivatives debt, totaling at least one quadrillion dollars which is 16 times the value of the entire planet, and the interest continues to grow at an exponential rate. The derivatives debt plus the unfunded liabilities that, which totals $238 trillion, will absolutely crush the economic system of this country. This is by design.

Obama Has Outwardly Declared War Against the American People

Under Obama’s watch, the Department of Homeland Security has armed themselves with 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition and 2700 armored personnel carriers. Even such innocuous federal entities, such as the National Weather Service, are arming themselves to the teeth. Obama has expanded the TSA tyranny, which violates all Americans Fourth Amendment rights, to the streets, the bus depots and certain highways. The Obama administration has purchased hundreds of concrete, bulletproof checkpoints which will be placed on the nation’s highways.

In the recent government shutdown, Obama forbade pastors from administering to their Christian flock in the military. However no other religion, including Islam, received such a prohibition. Under Obama, the Department of Homeland Security has declared Bible-believing Christians to be domestic terrorists. And let’s not forget that the American people have been saddled with the two most virulent forms tyrannical legislation in our nations history, the NDAA, in which Americans can be abducted by the government off of the street with no due process of law. And of course, there is Executive Order 13603, in which the President can take control of all resources and conscript all Americans to perform any duty as he sees fit.

This is the stuff that martial law is made of.

Conclusion

These events only represent the very tip of the iceberg. Again I ask the question, “can anyone name one thing that Obama has done since taking office, which in some way benefit the American middle class?” And I have not even touched upon Fast and Furious, the Benghazi scandal, the IRS harassment of the Tea Party Scandal, the government spying on AP reporters scandal, the NSA scandal and the mysterious deaths of Michael Hastings and Andrew Breitbart. Most, if not all of these scandals, are worse than anything Richard Nixon did in relation to the Watergate scandal.

Hitler would be jealous regarding the overwhelming nature of Obama’s blitzkrieg attack upon average Americans. And before you write to me and tell me that Obama is merely a stooge, and I agree he is a stooge controlled by bankers, please realize that we have to fight this battle at the level that it is occurring. The situation is so dire, that most Americans don’t even know who’s responsible for the attacks upon their lifestyles and their pocketbooks. This was the motivation for this article.

America is in need of a game-changing event. Perhaps these brave people in Maryland have lit a fire. However such an event would require a collective action and the only medium of communication and ultimately collective resistance against this tyranny, will soon be gone because Obama and his minions are seeking to control the Internet. Obama needs to be impeached and he needs to be impeached right now.

I used to be foolish enough to believe that we could turn back this type of tyranny by collectively and effectively using the political tools at our disposal. However, I have come to realize that we are playing in a game that has absolutely no rules. There is absolutely no higher authority that the people can take their case to that hasn’t already been corrupted by the bankers who have successfully hijacked our government and control the executive branch. On my talk show, I employ a catch phrase which states “Freeing America one enslaved mind at a time”. It may no longer be possible to save America, but you can save yourself by properly adapting through proper preparation and by embracing your spirituality in which you can provide your soul with a degree of permanence that the American government can never provide for you.

obama-my-work-here-is-done

I ask you America, does this look and sound like a President that can save you, or even wants to save you from Ebola?

DHS BUYS 2500 ARMORED FIGHTING VEHICLES

DHS: A beast that is accelerating our nation’s transformation into a police state

Commentary by:John W Whitehead

“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison

“Here [in New Mexico], we are moving more toward a national police force. Homeland Security is involved with a lot of little things around town. Somebody in Washington needs to call a timeout.” —Dan Klein, retired Albuquerque Police Department sergeant

If the United States is a police state, then the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is its national police force, with all the brutality, ineptitude and corruption such a role implies. In fact, although the DHS’ governmental bureaucracy may at times appear to be inept and bungling, it is ruthlessly efficient when it comes to building what the Founders feared most—a standing army on American soil.

The third largest federal agency behind the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense, the DHS—with its 240,000 full-time workers, $61 billion budget and sub-agencies that include the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)—has been aptly dubbed a “runaway train.”

In the 12 years since it was established to “prevent terrorist attacks within the United States,” the DHS has grown from a post-9/11 knee-jerk reaction to a leviathan with tentacles in every aspect of American life. With good reason, a bipartisan bill to provide greater oversight and accountability into the DHS’ purchasing process has been making its way through Congress.

A better plan would be to abolish the DHS altogether. In making the case for shutting down the de facto national police agency, analyst Charles Kenny offers the following six reasons: one, the agency lacks leadership; two, terrorism is far less of a threat than it is made out to be; three, the FBI has actually stopped more alleged terrorist attacks than DHS; four, the agency wastes exorbitant amounts of money with little to show for it; five, “An overweight DHS gets a free pass to infringe civil liberties without a shred of economic justification”; and six, the agency is just plain bloated.

To Kenny’s list, I will add the following: The menace of a national police force, a.k.a. a standing army, vested with so much power cannot be overstated, nor can its danger be ignored. Indeed, as the following list shows, just about every nefarious deed, tactic or thuggish policy advanced by the government today can be traced back to the DHS, its police state mindset, and the billions of dollars it distributes to police agencies in the form of grants.

Militarizing police and SWAT teams. The DHS routinely hands out six-figure grants to enable local municipalities to purchase military-style vehicles, as well as a veritable war chest of weaponry, ranging from tactical vests, bomb-disarming robots, assault weapons and combat uniforms. This rise in military equipment purchases funded by the DHS has, according to analysts Andrew Becker and G.W. Schulz, “paralleled an apparent increase in local SWAT teams.” The end result? An explosive growth in the use of SWAT teams for otherwise routine police matters, an increased tendency on the part of police to shoot first and ask questions later, and an overall mindset within police forces that they are at war—and the citizenry are the enemy combatants.

Spying on activists, dissidents and veterans. In 2009, DHS released three infamous reports on Rightwing and Leftwing “Extremism,” and another entitled Operation Vigilant Eagle, outlining a surveillance program targeting veterans. The reports collectively and broadly define extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.” In 2013, it was revealed that DHS, the FBI, state and local law enforcement agencies, and the private sector were working together to conduct nationwide surveillance on protesters’ First Amendment activities.

Stockpiling ammunition.  DHS, along with other government agencies, has been stockpiling an alarming amount of ammunition in recent years, which only adds to the discomfort of those already leery of the government. As of 2013, DHS had 260 million rounds of ammo in stock, which averages out to between 1,300 to 1,600 rounds per officer. The US Army, in contrast, has roughly 350 rounds per soldier. DHS has since requisitioned more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammo, “enough,” concludes Forbes magazine, “to sustain a hot war for 20+ years.”

Distributing license plate readers. DHS has already distributed more than $50 million in grants to enable local police agencies to acquire license plate readers, which rely on mobile cameras to photograph and identify cars, match them against a national database, and track their movements. Relying on private contractors to maintain a license plate database allows the DHS and its affiliates to access millions of records without much in the way of oversight.

Contracting to build detention camps. In 2006, DHS awarded a $385 million contract to a Halliburton subsidiary to build detention centers on American soil. Although the government and Halliburton were not forthcoming about where or when these domestic detention centers would be built, they rationalized the need for them in case of “an emergency influx of immigrants, or to support the rapid development of new programs” in the event of other emergencies such as “natural disasters.” Viewed in conjunction with the NDAA provision allowing the military to arrest and indefinitely detain anyone, including American citizens, it would seem the building blocks are already in place for such an eventuality.

Tracking cell-phones with Stingray devices. Distributed to local police agencies as a result of grants from the DHS, these Stingray devices enable police to track individuals’ cell phones—and their owners—without a court warrant or court order. The amount of information conveyed by these devices about one’s activities, whereabouts and interactions is considerable. As one attorney explained: “Because we carry our cellphones with us virtually everywhere we go, stingrays can paint a precise picture of where we are and who we spend time with, including our location in a lover’s house, in a psychologist’s office or at a political protest.”

Carrying out military drills and lockdowns in American cities. Each year, DHS funds military-style training drills in cities across the country. These Urban Shield exercises, elaborately staged with their own set of professionally trained Crisis Actors playing the parts of shooters, bystanders and victims, fool law enforcement officials, students, teachers, bystanders and the media into thinking it’s a real crisis.

Using the TSA as an advance guard. The TSA now searches a variety of government and private databases, including things like car registrations and employment information, in order to track travelers’ before they ever get near an airport. Other information collected includes “tax identification number, past travel itineraries, property records, physical characteristics, and law enforcement or intelligence information.”

Conducting virtual strip searches with full-body scanners. Under the direction of the TSA, American travelers have been subjected to all manner of searches ranging from whole-body scanners and enhanced patdowns at airports to bag searches in train stations. In response to public outrage over what amounted to a virtual strip search, the TSA has begun replacing the scanners with equally costly yet less detailed models. The old scanners will be used by prisons for now.

Carrying out soft target checkpoints. VIPR task forces, comprised of federal air marshals, surface transportation security inspectors, transportation security officers, behavior detection officers and explosive detection canine teams have laid the groundwork for the government’s effort to secure so-called “soft” targets such as malls, stadiums, bridges, etc. Some security experts predict that checkpoints and screening stations will eventually be established at all soft targets, such as department stores, restaurants, and schools. DHS’ Operation Shield, a program which seeks to check up on security protocols around the country with unannounced visits, conducted a surprise security exercise at the Social Security Administration building in Leesburg, Fla., when they subjected people who went to pick up their checks to random ID checks by federal agents armed with semi-automatic weapons.

Directing government workers to spy on Americans.  Terrorism Liaison Officers are firefighters, police officers, and even corporate employees who have received training to spy on and report back to government entities on the day-to-day activities of their fellow citizens. These individuals are authorized to report “suspicious activity” which can include such innocuous activities as taking pictures with no apparent aesthetic value, making measurements and drawings, taking notes, conversing in code, espousing radical beliefs, and buying items in bulk.

Conducting widespread spying networks using fusion centers. Data collecting agencies spread throughout the country, aided by the National Security Agency, fusions centers—of which there are at least 78 scattered around the U.S.— constantly monitor our communications, collecting and cataloguing everything from our internet activity and web searches to text messages, phone calls and emails. This data is then fed to government agencies, which are now interconnected: the CIA to the FBI, the FBI to local police. Despite a budget estimated to be somewhere between $289 million and $1.4 billion, these fusion centers have proven to be exercises in incompetence, often producing irrelevant, useless or inappropriate intelligence, while spending millions of dollars on “flat-screen televisions, sport utility vehicles, hidden cameras and other gadgets.”

Carrying out Constitution-free border control searches. On orders from the DHS, the government’s efforts along the border have become little more than an exercise in police state power, ranging from aggressive checkpoints to the widespread use of drone technology, often used against American citizens traveling within the country. Border patrol operations occur within 100 miles of an international crossing, putting some 200 million Americans within the bounds of aggressive border patrol searches and seizures, as well as increasingly expansive drone surveillance. With 71 checkpoints found along the southwest border of the United States alone, suspicionless search and seizures on the border are rampant. Border patrol agents also search the personal electronic devices of people crossing the border without a warrant.

Funding city-wide surveillance cameras. As Charlie Savage reports for the Boston Globe, the DHS has funneled “millions of dollars to local governments nationwide for purchasing high-tech video camera networks, accelerating the rise of a ‘surveillance society’ in which the sense of freedom that stems from being anonymous in public will be lost.” These camera systems, installed on city streets, in parks and transit systems, operating in conjunction with sophisticated computer systems that boast intelligent video analytics, digital biometric identification, military-pedigree software for analyzing and predicting crime and facial recognition software, create a vast surveillance network that can target millions of innocent individuals.

Utilizing drones and other spybots. The DHS has been at the forefront of funding and deploying surveillance robots and drones for land, sea and air, including robots that resemble fish and tunnel-bots that can travel underground. Despite repeated concerns over the danger surveillance drones used domestically pose to Americans’ privacy rights, the DHS has continued to expand its fleet of Predator drones, which come equipped with video cameras, infrared cameras, heat sensors, and radar. DHS also loans its drones out to local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies for a variety of tasks, although the agency refuses to divulge any details as to how, why and in what capacity these drones are being used by police. Incredibly, the DHS has also been handing out millions of dollars in grants to local police agencies to “accelerate the adoption” of drones in their localities.

It’s not difficult to see why the DHS has been described as a “wasteful, growing, fear-mongering beast.” If it is a beast, however, it is a beast that is accelerating our nation’s transformation into a police state through its establishment of a standing army, a.k.a. national police force.

This, too, is nothing new. Historically, as I show in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, the establishment of a national police force has served as a fundamental and final building block for every totalitarian regime that has ever wreaked havoc on humanity, from Hitler’s all-too-real Nazi Germany to George Orwell’s fictional Oceania. Whether fictional or historical, however, the calling cards of these national police agencies remain the same: brutality, inhumanity, corruption, intolerance, rigidity, and bureaucracy—in other words, evil.

bill gates polio vaccine 1

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

If you break the law you will be brought to justice. This is the system of protections any civilized society constructs to guard its citizens against anarchy and chaos, from those who feel they are above said laws and protections. This is a centuries old scenario that is in most cases just and tenable, that in practice convinces those who would perpetrate harm upon others, from doing so, because the penalty outweighs the action, or punishes those who do violate these laws as a form of lesson or example to others who may consider such actions.

By definition No One is above these laws … Except …

The fact that this planet is ruled (not governed) today by a corporate oligarchy is becoming more apparent to the global population by the day. There are those among us that exercise such massive levels of control that they can, and do, place themselves above these laws that govern the actions of individuals like you and me. Examples of this corruption and complicity (of governments and officers of the court) are plentiful and easy to come by.

The teen of a wealthy and powerful oligarch under the influence of illegal narcotics or alcohol commits vehicular manslaughter and is assessed with a few years probation, whereas a poor man is caught with a single marijuana joint can receive up to ten years of hard labor in a “for profit” prison. The scenarios I could present here are endless! The inequities are blindingly obvious to many, with more waking up to this injustice daily.

Yet none of this compares to the massive harm and in many cases death being perpetrated on the global community today by such entities as the Pharmaceutical, Bio-tech or Chemical industries. Cancers, Genetic disorders, Cognitive Dysfunctions, Auto immune disorders, Birth defects, Still births, Spontaneous abortions, Sterility and death are but a few of the blights on the rise on a massive scale globally, knowingly proliferated on an unsuspecting and trusting public via Drugs, Fluoride, Vaccines, GMOs, Bio-toxins, Environmental toxins and more. And all for greed, profit or possibly something much more sinister … but no one goes to prison.

This elitist caste masquerade as humanities benefactors, its saviors hiding behind the illusion of feeding the starving masses or healing the sick … but in many cases, nothing could be further from the truth. What we in actuality have could more correctly be labeled “Pseudo-Benevolence”!

Drugs fast tracked through regulatory processes that do massive harm up to and including death, only to find out years later that the science was available to the perpetrators all along showing the defects in the drugs. Sure for theater an occasional fine is levied, but compared to the profit realized by the perpetrator, the fine is just the cost of doing business … but no one goes to prison.

Regulatory agencies bought or corrupted (via promises of power, wealth, or position) to turn a blind eye to bad science. Science left to the manufacturer to provide, but not prove. Science hidden or altered by the very agencies we fund to protect us, only to benefit these corrupt industries. None of this is guess any longer with more coming to light daily via whistle-blowers and researchers … but no one goes to prison.

If these were isolated incidents, occurring randomly and infrequently, we could chalk this up to the greed of a few, but what we are witnessing is corruption, complicity and greed on such a massive scale as to bend the mind. One could not even begin to tally the total suffering and death caused by these mechanisms over the last century globally, and if you could it would be a total that would put any disaster or war in all of human history to shame! And the possible explanations are so horrendous and evil as to make one weep for all the suffering and death these mechanism are ultimately responsible for … but still, no one goes to prison.

Or will they …

Attached you will find an article by TLB Staff Writer: Christina England amplifying and detailing some of what I eluded to above … Will this elitist caste finally prove to be vulnerable? One can only hope that someone … will finally go to prison! But with the corrupted state of justice today, I must sadly state … I seriously doubt it!

Read on …

India-HPV-Vaccine

India Holds Bill Gates Accountable For His Vaccine Crimes

By TLB Staff Writer: Christina England

As Bill Gates faces a lawsuit for the illegal testing of tribal children in India, it appears that his crimes against humanity have finally caught up with him.

A recent report published by Health Impact News has reported that the Gates Foundation has found itself facing a pending lawsuit, due to an investigation that is being carried out by the Supreme Courts of India.

Health Impact News stated:

“While fraud and corruption are revealed on almost a daily basis now in the vaccine industry, the U.S. mainstream media continues to largely ignore such stories. Outside the U.S., however, the vaccine empires are beginning to crumble, and English versions of the news in mainstream media outlets are available via the Internet.

One such country is India, where the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and their vaccine empire are under fire, including a pending lawsuit currently being investigated by the India Supreme Court.” [1]

The Health Impact News article centered largely on a four-page report that was recently published by Economic Times India.

Eager to know more, I investigated their story and discovered that the World Health Organization, the Gates Foundation and two organizations funded by them, PATH (Program for Appropriate Technology in Health) and GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization), have found themselves under fire, after a writ of petition originally submitted to the Supreme Court of India, by Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and Dr. Rukmini Rao in 2012, was finally heard by the courts.

The petitioners submitting the petition stated:

“BMGF, PATH and WHO were criminally negligent trialling the vaccines on a vulnerable, uneducated and under-informed population school administrators, students and their parents who were not provided informed consent or advised of potential adverse effects or required to be monitored post-vaccination.” [2]

Young Tribal Girls Tested With HPV Vaccines

The Economic Times India published their report August 2014. They stated that in 2009, tests had been carried out on 16,000 tribal school children in Andhra Pradesh, India, using the human papiloma virus (HPV) vaccine, Gardasil.

According to the report written by KP Narayana Kumar, within a month of receiving the vaccine, many of the children fell ill and by 2010, five of them had died. A further two children were reported to have died in Vadodara, Gujarat, where an estimated 14,000 tribal children were vaccinated with another brand of the HPV vaccine, Cervarix, manufactured by GlaxoSmitheKline (GSK).

Shockingly, the report stated that many of the consent forms used to vaccinate the girls were signed “illegally,” either by the wardens from the hostels where many of the girls resided, or using thumbprints from illiterate parents.

This travesty was not discovered until a team of health activists from the non-government organization SAMA, an organization specializing in women’s health, decided to investigate what had been going on.

According to the report, they were shocked to discover that a total of 120 girls had been taken ill, suffering from a variety of symptoms, including “epileptic seizures, severe stomach aches, headaches and mood swings.”

The Economic Times stated:

“The Sama report also said there had been cases of early onset of menstruation following the vaccination, heavy bleeding and severe menstrual cramps among many students. The standing committee pulled up the relevant state governments for the shoddy investigation into these deaths.

It said it was disturbed to find that ‘all the seven deaths were summarily dismissed as unrelated to vaccinations without in-depth investigations …’ the speculative causes were suicides, accidental drowning in well (why not suicide?), malaria, viral infections, subarachnoid hemorrhage (without autopsy) etc.”

This information is even more shocking when you discover that the organization funding the study was none other than the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, who declared the project a total success.

Kumar wrote:

“According to the BMGF, the WHO, the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, and the Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India have all recommended vaccination ‘as a proven and highly effective preventive measure for cervical cancer.’ The project used vaccines that are licensed in India and that have been administered safely around the world tens of millions of times, preventing countless cases of cervical cancer illness and death, ‘maintains a BMGF spokesperson in an emailed response (see GAVI & PHFI create incentives …’”

He continued:

“BMGF’s role in funding the controversial studies, however, has led to many healthcare activists in India voicing their apprehensions. ‘BMGF has to take full responsibility because PATH is funded by them. It is also unethical when people championing the cause of vaccines are the same ones who are also investing in vaccine development,’ said V Rukmini Rao, one of the activists who filed a writ petition before the Supreme Court in connection with the HPV vaccine studies.” [3]

Absolutely, and this is not the first time that these organizations have been caught illegally testing vaccines in developing countries.

Gates Foundation, WHO, PATH, GAVI, UNICEF Behind Chad Vaccine Disaster

In December 2012, in the small village of Gouro, Chad, Africa, situated on the edge of the Sahara Desert, five hundred children were locked into their school, threatened that if they did not agree to being force-vaccinated with a meningitis A vaccine, they would receive no further education.

These children were vaccinated without their parents’ knowledge. This vaccine was an unlicensed product still going through the third and fourth phases of testing.

Within hours, one hundred and six children began to suffer from headaches, vomiting, severe uncontrollable convulsions and paralysis. The children’s wait for a doctor began. They had to wait one full week for a doctor to arrive while the team of vaccinators proceeded to vaccinate others in the village.

When the doctor finally came, he could do nothing for the children. The team of vaccinators, upon seeing what had happened, fled the village in fear.

The original report written in a small, local newspaper called La Voix, the only newspaper to have published the original story, stated that forty children were finally transferred to a hospital in Faya and later taken by plane to two hospitals in N’Djamena, the capital city of Chad.

Link to VacTruth Article

After being shuttled around like cattle, many of these sick, weak children were finally dumped back in their village without a diagnosis and each family was given an unconfirmed sum of £1000 by the government. No forms were signed and no documentation was seen. They were informed that their children had not suffered a vaccine injury.

However, if this were true, why would their government award each family £1000 in what has been described as hush money?

The only mainstream news channel to have highlighted the plight of these poor children was a local channel called Tchad, which filmed footage of the then-Prime Minister of Chad visiting the children in hospital.

VacTruth has copies of both reports, along with medical and government documents.

Despite this evidence and VacTruth’s detailed and extensive coverage, including highlighting television footage, once again, the vaccine program was hailed a success. To watch videos reporting the story, see the references at the end of this article. [4] [5]

The groups involved with this project were PATH, WHO, UNICEF, and the Gates Foundation. During investigations, it was discovered that the whole project was being run by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

In a press release, the Gates Foundation stated:

“MenAfriVac is a tremendous success story for the global health community. It is the first vaccine developed specifically for Africa, and it proves that global partnerships can develop and deliver high-quality, low-cost vaccines.

Ten years ago, we invested in the Meningitis Vaccine Project,  an innovative model that brought together PATH, the World Health Organization, African health ministers and the Serum Institute of India today, we celebrate the result: a modern vaccine selling for less than US 50 cents per dose with the potential to end Africa’s deadly meningitis epidemics.

We believe that vaccines are one of the best buys in global health. In January, Bill and Melinda Gates called on the global community to make this the Decade of Vaccines. There is no better way to launch this decade than with a new vaccine that will improve and save lives.” [6]

VacTruth can prove otherwise.

Government Inquiry Holds GAVI Accountable for Multiple Deaths

Despite the fact the Gates Foundation call vaccines “one of the best buys in global health,” a government inquiry in Pakistan has found the complete opposite.

In 2011, the Express Tribune published a story stating that:

“ISLAMABAD: A government inquiry has found that polio vaccines for infants funded by the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunisation are causing deaths and disabilities in regional countries including Pakistan.

The startling revelation is part of an inquiry report prepared by the Prime Minister’s Inspection Commission (PMIC) on the working of the Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI). The PMIC, headed by Malik Amjad Noon, has recommended that Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani immediately suspend the administration of all types of vaccines funded by the GAVI.”

According to the Express Tribune, the main vaccinations in question were the polio vaccine and the 5-in-1 pentavelent vaccine, which were said to be responsible for the deaths and disability of a number of children in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Japan.

The vaccines were funded by the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunization (GAVI) an organization financed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Children’s Vaccine Program, the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association, the Rockefeller Foundation, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank.

Writing on the official report, made exclusive to the newspaper, the Express Tribune stated:

“The report states, ‘The procured vaccines are not tested in laboratories to confirm their efficacy and genuineness. This leaves room for use of spurious and counterfeit vaccines.’” [7] (emphasis added)

If this is true, then once again the Gates Foundation has been linked to mass vaccination initiatives using untested, unsafe vaccinations.

The Gates Foundation and WHO Labeled Unethical by Medical Experts

In 2012, Ramesh Shankar Mumbai, an author writing for the Pharmabiz website, reported that two medical experts from India had accused the Gates Foundation and WHO of being unethical.

In his report, Mumbai stated that Dr. Neetu Vashisht and Dr. Jacob Puliyel of the Department of Pediatrics at St. Stephens Hospital in Delhi, wrote the following information in their report in the April issue of Indian Journal of Medical Ethics.

“It was unethical for WHO and Bill Gates to flog this program when they knew 10 years back that it was never to succeed. Getting poor countries to expend their scarce resources on an impossible dream over the last 10 years was unethical.”

Pharmabiz.com reported that Dr. Vashisht and Dr. Puliyel had continued their report by stating:

“Another major ethical issue raised by the campaign is the failure to thoroughly investigate the increase in the incidence of non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) in areas where many doses of vaccine were used. NPAFP is clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly.”

Pharmabiz.com continued:

“The authors noted that while India was polio-free in 2011, in the same year, there were 47500 cases of NPAFP. While data from India’s National Polio Surveillance Project showed NPAFP rate increased in proportion to the number of polio vaccine doses received, independent studies showed that children identified with NPAFP ‘were at more than twice the risk of dying than those with wild polio infection.’” [8]

The corruption and deceit by these organizations does not stop there.

The Gates Foundation Blamed for 10,000 Vaccine-Related Deaths

In 2013, yet another report named the Gates Foundation and GAVI as being responsible for multiple deaths using untested vaccinations on children from the developing world.

The report, published on the website Occupy Corporatism and written by Susanne Posel stated:

“It was found out through an investigation, that GAVI was using an untested vaccine; giving this dangerous vaccine to Pakistani children shows the lack of empathy associated with these organizations.

GAVI was blamed for the deaths of 10,000 children in Pakistan when they came in and administered polio vaccines that resulted in casualties.” [9]

As we know, GAVI is heavily funded by the Gates Foundation. [10]

So, what was the name of the organization that investigated GAVI and found them using untested polio vaccinations in Pakistan?

According to the Express Tribune article, which I referred to earlier in this article, it was none other than the Indian government, who, upon discovering the shocking truth, recommended the immediate suspension of the administration of all types of vaccines funded by GAVI. [7]

In a recent radio show hosted by Sallie O. Elkordy, Susanne Posel gave her frank and honest views on the whole sorry mess that we find ourselves in today.

Warning: This report is not for the faint-hearted. [11]

Conclusion

It is difficult to believe that, despite the mounting evidence outlining the many crimes against humanity that have been committed by the Gates Foundation, GAVI, UNICEF and PATH, Bill Gates is portrayed as a hero among many.

However, according to the definition of hero in the Oxford Dictionary, the word hero means:

“A person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.” [12]

The dictionary I used said nothing about vaccinating innocent, vulnerable children with untested and unsafe vaccinations, causing them to suffer agonizing, untimely deaths.

Ron-Paul-Hillary-Clinton

Ron Paul says Hillary Clinton would be a pro-war, pro-military-industrial complex and pro-Federal Reserve president.

Paul, former Republican congressman and presidential candidate, made the remarks during an interview on Thursday night on a RT America program, Politicking with Larry King.

When King asked Paul what kind of president the former US secretary of state would be, he said, “I would think she’d be pretty average, pretty mediocre, pretty much for war, pretty much for welfare-ism, pretty much for deficits, pretty supportive of the Federal Reserve and loving the military-industrial complex.”

Paul, 79, has maintained strong positions against the military-industrial complex and the Federal Reserve, each of which he considers responsible for many of the ills afflicting the United States.

He has also strongly opposed US wars on foreign lands, particularly American military engagements in the Middle East.

Paul said that Clinton’s stances on foreign and monetary policy make her similar to the recent US presidents.

“[T]hat’s what we’ve been having, so I don’t think she would provide any change whatsoever in a positive sense,” Paul said of a potential Clinton presidency.

Stephen Lendman, a writer, peace activist and radio show host, told Press TV in August that Clinton, the 66-year-old presumptive Democratic frontrunner for the 2016 presidential race, represents imperial arrogance, and she was a wretched secretary of state.

“She represents — in spades — bulling, bluster and imperial arrogance. She was a wretched secretary of state. John Kerry is going way out of his way to match her blow for blow. But Hillary Clinton’s tenure was really, really an abomination, to say the least. She is extremely hawkish. She supports America’s wars that all are illegal,” Lendman said.

thematrix7

By: Jon Rappoport

Quick background to set the stage:

In October of 2009, Sharyl Attkisson, writing for CBS News, exposed the fact that the CDC had stopped counting Swine Flu cases in the US. The real reason?

The overwhelming number of blood samples from the most likely Swine Flu patients, sent to labs, were coming back negative for the H1N1 (Swine Flu) virus, or any flu virus.

This was a killer. It left the CDC completely exposed. They were claiming there were tens of thousands Swine Flu cases in America. But the lab tests were revealing how preposterous that lie was.

Okay. An hour ago, I found a page on the CDC website labeled “H1N1 Flu.” The article posted there is: “CDC Estimates of 2009 H1N1 [Swine Flu] Influenza Cases, Hospitalizations and Deaths in the US.”

Here is a quote. Buckle up:

“During the pandemic, CDC provided estimates of the numbers of 2009 H1N1 cases, hospitalizations and deaths on seven different occasions. Final estimates were published in 2011. These final estimates were that from April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010 approximately 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (8868-18,306) occurred in the United States due to pH1N1.”

SIXTY MILLION cases of Swine Flu in America.

One out of every five people in the US had Swine Flu.

Sixty million.

This lie takes the cake.

“Well, they caught us lying about tens of thousands of Swine Flu cases. All the tests came back negative. So what do we do?”

“Only one thing we can do. Tell a lie so huge it’ll paralyze the mind. People buy the biggest lies, right?”

Right now, the CDC is saying: there was a sudden acceleration of death in West Africa, beyond anything caused by endemic grinding poverty, severe malnutrition, starvation, a decade-long war, lack of basic sanitation, industrial pollution, toxic vaccine campaigns.

Right now, the CDC is saying this outbreak is caused by something called the Ebola virus.

Right now, the CDC is saying the tests used to diagnose Ebola are very accurate.

Feel free to believe the CDC.

Because you have faith. Because they must be right.

police state

By: Sherwood Ross

Is the Obama regime preparing for mass arrests of Americans? Some indicators suggest this is a real possibility.

It has all the laws it needs to imprison anyone should it plan to make mass arrests (thanks, Congress, for the unconstitutional Patriot Act and National Defense Authorization Act).

It has illegally compiled lists of some 8 million names, (thank you, FBI and NSA).

It has vast stockpiles of weapons and bullets, (salute the Pentagon!)

It has $385 million worth of new dormitories (i.e., prisons?) tucked away on military bases called “National Emergency Centers” (thanks, Halliburton construction subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root).

And it has invested 120,000 on-duty officers from 73 law enforcement agencies with authority to arrest “suspects.”

If you think “it can’t happen here,” as described in the 1935 Sinclair Lewis novel of that name, think again. What’s to stop USG from doing Stateside what it has been doing around the world? After all, who has already begun killing American citizens with illegal drone strikes if not our totalitarian trendsetter President Barack Obama?

As Bill Blum, a Washington investigative journalist writes in his “Anti-Empire Report,” since the end of World War 2, the U.S. has interfered in the elections of at least 30 countries and dropped bombs on people in as many others and attempted to overthrow more than 50, mostly democratic, governments, such as Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973. What’s stopping it from turning a democracy into a dictatorship?

President Obama has gone so far down the totalitarian road, American Civil Liberties Union(ACLU) Executive Director Anthony Romero proclaimed, “I am disgusted with this president…it’s (his) policies on civil liberties and national security issues I’m disgusted by.”

Romero added, Obama’s actions “raises serious questions about the administration’s commitment to the rule of law.” That’s a polite way of saying the president is a law-breaker. (In Chicago, the term to describe such people is ‘gangster.’) And extrajudicial killings are official Obama policy. As Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair claimed in Congressional testimony, the U.S. can, with executive approval, kill U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism.

“It is alarming to hear that the Obama administration is asserting that the president can authorize the assassination of Americans abroad, even if they are far from any battlefield and may have never taken up arms against the U.S., but have only been deemed to constitute and unspecified ‘threat,’” points out Ben Wizner, staff lawyer for the ACLU National Security Project.

The key phrase here is “unspecified ‘threat’”, another way of saying “suspected.” As George Mickum, a lawyer who has represented Guantanamo Bay prisoners, told Inter Press Service(IPS), “We have killed thousands of innocent civilians while attempting to target alleged operatives. And let us not forget how frequently our intelligence has been wrong about alleged operatives. As the civilians were not engaged in hostile actions, their murders by the Obama regime become ‘war crimes.’” (Dear George, “we” have not done anything!)

And constitutional scholar Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois, Champaign, told IPS, “This extrajudicial execution of human beings constitutes murder, war crimes, and because the drone strikes are widespread and systemic, crimes against humanity. Because Obama’s drone strikes almost exclusively target Muslims and People of Color, they verge upon genocide.”

Boyle said, further, “The U.S. government has now established a ‘death list’ for U.S. citizens abroad akin to those established by Latin American dictatorships during their so-called dirty wars.”

If you think the USG will not condemn more Americans to death without trials, ponder the words of attorney John Whitehead, head of the Rutherford Institute of Charlottesville, Va.: “Unfortunately, ‘we the people’ have become so trusting, so gullible, so easily distracted, so out-of-touch, so compliant and so indoctrinated on the idea that our government will always do the right thing by us that we have ignored the warning signs all around us, or at least failed to recognize them as potential red flags.” Whitehead is the author of “A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State.”

To our knowledge,the Obama regime has not answered questions Whitehead put to it, which (my paraphrasing) include:

Q: Why did the Department of Homeland Security(DHS) buy 1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition and 7,000 fully-automatic 5.56x45mm NATO ‘personal defense weapons’?

Q: Why do the Postal Service, Department of Education, Internal Revenue Service, Social Security Administration and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration buy up weapons and ammunition in bulk?

Q: Why does the Department of Agriculture need 320,000 rounds of hollow point bullets and .40 caliber submachine guns?

Q: Why is FEMA stockpiling massive quantities of emergency supplies?

Q: Why is DHS giving away millions of dollars’ worth of federal security grants to states that federal intelligence agencies ruled have “no specific foreign or domestic terrorism threat?”

Whitehead points to a New York Times article quoting a Pentagon source who says that under Obama police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.

In addition to militarizing the police, Obama’s USG is building a Main Core database, Whitehead says, that “would be used by military officials to locate and round up Americans seen as threats to national security…to be carried out by the Army and FEMA.

Whitehead concludes, “Taken individually, these questions are alarming enough. However, when viewed collectively, they leave one wondering what exactly the U.S. government is preparing for and whether American citizens shouldn’t be preparing, as well, for that eventuality when our so-called ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people’ is no longer answerable to ‘we the people.’”

Barack-Obama

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

It is so easy to blame someone else! We have all been guilty of this at least once in our lives, but we are not the Commander In Chief of the most powerful military force in human history. We are not responsible for the safety and protection of an entire country of over 300, 000,000 people in times of chaos.

Excuses are easily overlooked by individuals who’s actions provide minimal or extremely localized ramifications, but to expect anything less than focused dedication from our most powerful leaders is suicidal … this IS their job!

57% is almost 3 out of every 5 vital briefings skipped … This is the man who dictates our military policy (via his masters) abroad, and as it relates to the protection of the homeland. In a time of chaos and crisis is this acceptable?

Which president has the most tee times, the most vacation days, the most opulent vacations, even though his second term is but half over. Are these valid questions? In light of the graphic presented below … I would have to connect the dots and say yes!

Yes a picture is worth a thousand words and presents a blatant look into the priorities of this individual. It is obvious even to the most casual of observers … that priority is not  so much you and me … or America …

isis-and-obama

When Piers Morgan (of all bleeding Liberals) comes down on Obama with the power of a pile-driver for his lackadaisical performance as the (so called) Leader of free world, this shows blatantly just how far the President has fallen from the graces of those who once supported him without question!

Victims of War

Empire over life: That has always been Washington’s guiding principle

By: DR. Paul Craig Roberts

Did you know that 85 to 90 percent of war’s casualties are non-combatant civilians? That is the conclusion reached by a nine-person research team in the June 2014 issue of the American Journal of Public Health. The deaths of soldiers who are fighting the war are a small part of the human and economic cost. Clearly, wars do not protect the lives of civilians. The notion that soldiers are dying for us is false. Non-combatants are the main victims of war.

Keep that in mind for the next July 4th.

July 4th is America’s most important national holiday celebrating American independence from Great Britain. On July 4th, 1776, America’s Founding Fathers declared that the Thirteen Colonies were no longer colonies but an independent country in which the Rights of Englishmen would prevail for all citizens and not only for King George’s administrators. (Actually, the Second Continental Congress voted in favor of independence on July 2, and historians debate whether the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4 or August 2.)

In this American assertion of self-determination citizens of Great Britain were not allowed to vote. Therefore, according to Washington’s position on the votes in Crimea and in eastern Ukraine–the former Russian territories of Donetsk and Luhansk–America’s Declaration of Independence was “illegitimate and illegal.”

On every July 4th all across America there are patriotic speeches about our soldiers who gave their lives for their country. To an informed person these speeches are curious. I am hard pressed to think of any examples of our soldiers giving their lives for our country. US Marine General Smedley Butler had the same problem. He said that his Marines gave their lives for United Fruit Company’s control of Central America. “War is a racket,” said General Butler, pointing out that US participation in World War I produced 21,000 new American millionaires and billionaires.

When General Butler said “war is a racket,” he meant that war is a racket for a few people getting rich on the backs of millions of dead people. According to the article in the American Journal of Public Health, during the 20th century 190 million deaths could be directly and indirectly related to war.

190 million is 60 million more than the entire US population in the year that I was born.

The only war fought on US territory was the war against Southern Secession. In this war Irish immigrants fresh off the boat gave their lives for American Empire. As soon as the South was conquered, the Union forces were set loose on the Plains Indians and destroyed them as well.

Empire over life. That has always been Washington’s guiding principle.

America’s wars have always been fought elsewhere–Cuba, Haiti, Mexico, Philippines, Japan, Germany, Korea, Vietnam, Panama, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Somalia. Washington even attacks countries with which the US is not at war, such as Pakistan and Yemen, and engages in proxy wars. The article cited above reports: “The United States launched 201 overseas military operations between the end of World War II and 2001, and since then, others, including Afghanistan and Iraq.”

Not a single one of these wars and military operations had anything whatsoever to do with defending the US population from foreign threats.

Not even Japan and Germany posed a threat to the US. Neither country had any prospect of invading the US and neither country had any such war plans.

Let’s assume Japan had conquered China, Burma, and Indonesia. With such a vast territory to occupy, Japan could not have spared a single division with which to invade the US, and, of course, any invasion fleet would never have made it across the Pacific. Just as was the fate of the Japanese fleet at Midway, an invasion fleet would have been sitting ducks for the US Navy.

Assume Germany had extended its conquests over Europe to Great Britain, Russia and North Africa. Germany would have been unable to successfully occupy such a vast territory and could not have spared a single soldier to send to invade America. Even the US superpower was unable to successfully occupy Iraq and Afghanistan, countries with small land areas and populations in comparison.

Except for its wars against the South, the Plains Indians, Haiti, Spain, Panama, Grenada, and Mexico, the US has never won a war. The Southern Confederates, usually outnumbered, often defeated the Union generals. Japan was defeated by its own lack of military resources. Germany was defeated by the Soviet Union. The allied invasion of Normandy did not occur until June 6, 1944, by which time the Red Army had ground up the Wehrmacht.

When the allies landed in Normandy, three-fourths of the German Army was on the Russian front. The allied invasion was greatly helped by Germany’s shortage of fuel for mobilized units. If Hitler had not allowed hubris to lead him into invading the Soviet Union and, instead, just sat on his European conquests, no allied invasion would have been possible. Today Germany would rule all of Europe, including the UK. The US would have no European Empire with which to threaten Russia, China, and the Middle East.

In Korea in the 1950s, General Douglas MacArthur, victorious over Japan, was fought to a standstill by third world China. In Vietnam American technological superiority was defeated by a third world army. The US rolled up mighty Grenada in the 1980s, but lost its proxy war against the Sandinistas in Nicaragua.

Is there anyone so foolish as to think that Grenada or the Sandinistas were a threat to the United States, that North Korea or North Vietnam comprised threats to the United States? Yet, the Korean and Vietnam wars were treated as if the fate of the United States hung in the balance. The conflicts produced voluminous dire predictions and strategic debates. The communist threat replaced the Hitler threat. The American Empire was at risk from third world peoples. Dominoes would fall everywhere.

Currently Washington is at work overturning President Reagan’s accomplishment of ending the Cold War. Washington orchestrated a coup that overthrew the elected government of Ukraine and installed a stooge government. Washington’s stooges began issuing threats against Russia and the Russian speaking population in Ukraine. These threats resulted in those parts of Ukraine that were formerly part of Russia declaring their independence. Washington blames Russia, not itself, and is stirring the pot, demonizing Russia and recreating the Cold War with military deployments in the Baltics and Eastern Europe. Washington needs to reinvent the Cold War in order to justify the hundreds of billions of dollars that Washington annually feeds the military/security complex, some of which recycles in political campaign donations. In contrast to Washington’s propaganda, an honest view of the events in Ukraine can be found here

In the United States patriotism and militarism have become synonyms. This July 4th find the courage to remind the militarists that Independence Day celebrates the Declaration of Independence, not the American Empire. The Declaration of Independence was not only a declaration of independence from King George III but also a declaration of independence from unaccountable tyrannical government. The oath of office commits the US officeholder to the defense of the US Constitution from enemies ”foreign and domestic.”

In the 21st century Americans’ worst enemies are not al Qaeda, Iran, Russia, and China. America’s worst enemies are our own presidents who have declared repeatedly that the orchestrated “war on terror” gives them the right to set aside the civil liberties guaranteed to every citizen by the US Constitution. Presidential disrespect for the US Constitution is so extreme that Obama has nominated David Barron to the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Barron is the Justice (sic) Department official who wrote the memos fabricating a legal justification for the Office of President to murder US citizens without due process of law.

Having stripped US citizens of their civil liberties, executive branch agencies are now stocking up vast amounts of ammunition, and the Department of Agriculture has placed an order for submachine guns. The Department for Homeland Security has acquired 2,717 mine-resistant armored personnel carriers. Congress and the media are not interested in why the executive branch is arming itself so heavily against the American people.

During the entirely of the 21st century–indeed, dating from the Clinton regime at the end of the 20th century–the executive branch has declared its independence from law (both domestic and international) and from the Constitution, Congress, and the Judiciary. The executive branch, with the help of the Republican Federalist Society, has established that the office of the executive is a tyranny unaccountable to law, domestic or international, as long as the executive declares a state of war, even a war that is not conducted against another country or countries but a vague, undefined or ill-defined war against a vague stateless enemy such as al Qaeda, with which the US is currently allied against Syria.

Al Qaeda now has a dual role. Al Qaeda is Washington’s agent for overthrowing the elected Assad government in Syria and al Qaeda is the evil force against which US civil liberties must be sacrificed.

The illegitimate power asserted by the Office of the President is not only a threat to every American but also to every living being on planet earth. As the article cited above reports: “Approximately 17,300 nuclear weapons are presently deployed in at least 9 countries, many of which can be launched and reach their targets within 45 minutes.”

It only takes one fool–and Washington has thousands of fools–and all life on earth terminates in 45 minutes. The neoconservative belief that the United States is the exceptional, indispensable country chosen by history to rule the earth is a belief full of the arrogance and hubris that lead to war.

Keep your likely fate in mind as you watch the military bands and marches on the next July 4th and listen to the hot air of militarism.

Preface by: Roger Landry (TLB)

Every Once in a while Someone or Something Makes You Smile, makes you tear up a little with the joy of knowing something good still exists in a world gone mad.

We don’t see it enough, especially those of us who spend our days (and nights) researching and warning those concerned on all the evil being perpetrated on us today, but that does not mean it isn’t there, it isn’t real, because it is.

Great things are being done daily by people who do not aspire to greatness, and these are the true unsung hero’s of our troubled times. There are far too many untold or unshared stories of this kind and just maybe TLB can help to bring a few more of these to light.

It has been entirely too long since I went looking for a positive story,  too long since I have had this feeling of compassion swell in me, this feeling of pride in those who give unselfishly to those less fortunate.

Now that I remember how this feels … I think I want more!

I have a TLB supporter to thank for encouraging me to do just that … I will surely make the time to thank her personally …

Camden Children’s Garden Brings Fresh Food to New Jersey’s Biggest Food Desert

By: Lynda McCullough

Although Mike Devlin was trained as a lawyer, his love for gardening led him down an unexpected career path. Devlin lives and works in Camden City, New Jersey, an impoverished city with a lack of fresh food and safe recreation. As a new resident and ward leader three decades ago, he became involved in community gardening, leading him to realize the important role urban gardens could play in addressing the city’s problems. With help from the William Penn Foundation, the community garden program expanded, and several years later, Devlin went on to start the Camden City Garden Club and the Camden Children’s Garden.

Today these combined programs provide fresh produce to a significant number of people in a food desert with zero supermarkets to its name. In this interview, Devlin, who serves as executive director of the Camden Children’s Garden, talks about the development and success of these comprehensive projects.

Food Tank (FT): What was the impetus for starting Camden Community Gardens and the Camden Children’s Garden?

Mike Devlin (MD): A little over 30 years ago while I was a ward leader, a couple of people wanted to start community gardens in the two neighborhoods that comprised my ward. Gardening was my own personal hobby and an escape from law and politics, and we helped them get city and county land to get those gardens started.

In 1985, the William Penn Foundation, which is still located in Philadelphia, came to Camden to see me. I was a county employee, a city resident, a gardener, and a city-elected ward leader. They wanted to help fund a community garden program, and they offered US$20,000 if someone would write a grant. As a county employee with three others in the elected board running the county and with the city mayor and council’s support, I asked for and received US$30,000, and that’s what started the program. They wanted to see a nonprofit formed, and I donated my time to form one. In the first year, we built a dozen new community gardens around Camden, and we’re now celebrating our thirtieth year of community gardening.

Later, we went to the American Horticultural Society’s Children in Gardening conferences where we started talking to people, which led to building the Camden Children’s Garden. It opened 15 years ago.

FT: How do the Camden Community and Children’s Gardens meet some of the unique needs of the city?

MD: In 2008, when the economy melted down, people in Camden, which is one of the poorest cities per capita in the nation, faced tougher times than most. We’re the worst food desert in New Jersey and one of the nine worst in the country, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). A lot of people started to come to us about starting a community garden to help get fresh food and save on their grocery bills. We went from about 30 community gardens in 2008 to over 130 today; according to the University of Pennsylvania, which is partnering with us on the USDA’s Community Food Project grant, about 15 percent of the population of the city gets some of its fresh produce from our program.

We do a lot of education for the community. We offer about 10,000 discounted or free admissions to Camden children each year. In Camden, there are no movie theaters, very little safe havens for recreation. We have a population of about 75,000 people, and about 50 percent are under the age of 20. Twenty-five percent of our children are born to unwed teenage mothers who won’t graduate high school. Sixty percent drop out of school before getting their high school diploma. We lost our last supermarket last September, so we have no supermarkets in nine square miles for 75,000 people, just corner stores, which sell little or no fresh food.

A lot of people have been separated from fresh food for many years, so we’re always trying to encourage people to try new vegetables and fruits. I believe that if they grow them, they will taste them; they will try to find a use for them because they have developed ownership of that product.

We help people get their gardens started and keep them going. They pay nominal dues of either US$25 a year for a family or US$65 a year for a community organization or church, and then we provide plants, fertilizer, lime, mushroom compost, wood chips, and muscle. We also support Americorps, and we had an Americorps team here through March and April, and we put them out at different sites to either get them started or help them along.

FT: What are the components of the Camden Children’s Garden?

MD: The Children’s Garden is a four-and-a-half acre plot, a dozen exhibits, three amusements, and a year-round indoor butterfly house built by the Philadelphia Eagles football team. It’s a tourist destination and the base of operations for all our programs, including the Community Gardens, Youth Employment Program, the Grow Lab, and Fresh Mobile Market that we put out on the streets of Camden. The train carousel and other rides generate income, and the butterfly house is also an educational center.

FT: How do the Youth Employment Programs work?

MD: Twenty-five years ago, Governor Christie Whitman gave us a grant to hire Camden youth to help build community gardens in the neighborhoods, and that program is still going on. We hire Camden teenagers when they’re 14 or 15 in their early years of high school. We also take some on from the city summer youth program.

A lot of other programs want us to work with them because our success rate is almost 100 percent with kids graduating high school and either getting into college or getting a job after high school. One-third to 40 percent of kids who finish our program graduate high school and enter college. We give them a job, they earn an income, and we take them on field trips. We treat them like family. We’ve only had one kid out of over 300 drop out of high school.

We have them help operate the garden. We have a lot of revenue-earning birthday parties, and the youth learn to host them. They learn about horticulture, and they learn basic job skills. We have strict rules about uniforms, and we provide some guidance, mentoring, and parenting.

If they have some direction, are earning some money, and they’re not getting into trouble but instead learning skills, they can succeed. Nohemi Soria, who’s 28 now, just went with me to Washington two weeks ago to help give the report on our second year. She came to the gardens when she was 14 years old. She stayed here through high school, went to college, graduated college, and came back; now she’s running the USDA community food project.

FT: How does the Grow Lab program work?

MD: Twenty-five years ago, we started an in-school program called Grow Lab, which comes out of the National Gardening Association in Vermont. It’s a K-8 hands-on science and math program using the grow labs and plants. It’s worked right into the classroom; they grow salad in the fall and have a salad party at Christmas, and they usually grow flowers or spring startup vegetables in the wintertime.

We have about 12 to 14 school gardens in Camden, and kids are learning science and math while they’re growing vegetables, or flowers for mom, or plants to put in their school vegetable gardens. They’re also having fun.

FT: What other organizations do you work with?

MD: We work with over 30 churches and faith-based groups and probably another 25 community organizations. We have gardens with the Boat People, the national Vietnamese group, and with Hispanic Family Services and Puerto Rican Unity for Progress.

FT: Where do you go from here?

MD: We want to continue expanding the community garden program because we’re still in very bad straights as a food desert. Right now, there’s less money available for community gardening then there was just a couple years ago. Things are not better; in fact they’re probably worse for two reasons. One, we lost the last supermarket in the city limits, and two, we had the worst winter we’ve ever had this past year. It was the second worst in the amount of snow; nothing survived.

We have about 130 gardens and yet there are about 12,000 abandoned lots in the city, including 4000 city-owned abandoned lots that are there for the taking. We’re seeking funds to help meet the need.

Kardshev Scale

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

Theorists assert that, as a civilization grows larger and becomes more advanced, its energy demands will increase rapidly due to its population growth and the energy requirements of its various machines. With this in mind, the Kardashev scale was developed as a way of measuring a civilization’s technological advancement based upon how much usable energy it has at its disposal. The Kardashev scale consists of six levels of civilization attainment (o-5). The earth finds itself at the end of Type 0.

This paper also concerns itself with the reasons why mankind lacks the resources to transition from Type 0 to Type 1. This paper will also make it clear why mankind has a 95% chance of perishing in this transition. First, let’s trace the path of human societal development that has brought us to the crisis point that we are at today.

The Five Subdivisions of Type 0 Civilization 

At the upper echelon of human development, mankind has entered the Post-Industrial period. However, economic disparity has kept some on the planet at a level of the hunter gatherer.  The following five societal categorizations represent the rite of passage that we must pass through to leave Type 0 and enter into a Type 1 civilization.

Hunter-Gatherer

Hunter-gatherer societies demonstrate the strongest dependence on the environment of the various types of preindustrial societies. As the basic structure of human society until about 10,000–12,000 years ago, these groups were based around kinship or tribes. Hunter-gatherers relied on their surroundings for survival as they hunted wild animals and foraged for uncultivated plants for food. When resources became scarce, the group moved to a new area to find the resources related to survival, which meant that they were nomadic. Hunter-gatherer groups were common in the United States at the time of European settlement of the North American continent. It is incredulous to believe that the greed of the present banker imposed economic disparity still produces a number of hunter-gatherers on the planet.

Pastoral

Changing conditions and adaptations led some societies to rely on the domestication of animals where circumstances permitted. Approximately 7,500 years ago, human societies began to recognize their ability to tame and breed animals and to grow and cultivate their own plants.

Unlike earlier hunter-gatherers who depended entirely on existing resources to stay alive, pastoral groups were able to breed livestock for food, clothing, and transportation, creating a surplus of goods. Herding, or pastoral, societies remained nomadic because they were forced to follow their animals to fresh feeding grounds. Around the time that pastoral societies emerged, specialized occupations began to develop, and societies commenced trading with local groups.

At the time of the American Revolution, most of the colonists were pastoral in nature. When the elite deny technology to much of the planet, some people remain mired in a pastoral society.

Agricultural

While pastoral and horticultural societies used small, temporary tools such as digging sticks or hoes, agricultural societies relied on permanent tools for survival.   Technology exploded as new tools for digging and harvesting were made of metal, making them more effective and longer lasting. Human settlements grew into towns and cities, and particularly bountiful regions became centers of trade and commerce.

This is also the age in which people had the time and comfort to engage in more contemplative and thoughtful activities, such as music, poetry, and philosophy. This period became referred to as the “dawn of civilization”. Craftsmanship, as a viable occupation became common.

The agriculture society also witnessed the rise of social classes and it is usually divisive. Those who had more resources could afford better living and developed into a class of nobility. Difference in social standing between men and women increased. As cities expanded, ownership and preservation of resources became a pressing concern.

Most of America’s 19th century was dominated by agricultural interests.

Industrial Society

In the 18th century, Europe experienced a dramatic rise in technological invention related to production and the manufacturing of goods. This ushered in an era known as the Industrial Revolution.

Within a generation, tasks that had until this point required months of labor became achievable in a matter of days. Before the Industrial Revolution, work was largely person- or animal-based, relying on human workers or horses to power mills and drive pumps. In 1782, James Watt and Matthew Boulton created a steam engine that could do the work of 12 horses by itself.

Rather than planting and harvesting fields by hand, farmers were able to purchase mechanical seeders and threshing machines that caused agricultural productivity to soar. Products such as paper and glass became available to the average person, and the quality and accessibility of education and health care soared. Gas lights allowed increased visibility in the dark, and towns and cities developed a nightlife.

One of the results of increased productivity and technology was the rise of urban centers. Workers flocked to factories for jobs, and the populations of cities became increasingly diverse. The new generation became less preoccupied with maintaining family land and traditions, and more focused on acquiring wealth and achieving upward mobility for themselves and their family. It is a time that inspired Karl Marx to take note of the financial exploitation of the masses by the few.And this exploitation normally came in the form of central banking.

Industrialization led to a thirst for natural resources which, in turn, led to an increase in wars. As the technology increased so did the number of deaths resulting from wars.  Technology is usually first obtained by the military and used to subjugate enemies. The power of government became increasingly dominated by the elite and governments subsequently killed more people than died in wars in the 20th century.

John D. Rockefeller became the symbol for industrial greed and oppression of the many by the few. At the time of his death, John D. Rockefeller made a penny for every dime made in America. Rockefeller and Rothschild interests became the seat of power for all modern governments which came to be dominated by central banking interests.

Postindustrial Society

Information societies, sometimes known as postindustrial or digital societies, are a recent development. Unlike industrial societies that are rooted in the production of material goods, information societies are based on the production of information and services.

Digital technology is the life blood of information societies. Since the economy of information societies is driven by knowledge and not material goods, power lies with those in charge of storing and distributing information. Members of a postindustrial society are likely to be employed as sellers of services and software programmers or business consultants, for example. However, the producers of goods still exist, it is just that they exist in third world labor markets to take advantage of cheap labor. Social classes are divided by access to education, since without technical skills, people in an information society lack the means for success.

The hallmark characteristic of this period is the full development of Uranium 235. Nuclear power holds the promise to make cheap energy available across the planet. However, this same power could be used destroy humanity. The United States has enough nuclear weapons to destroy the entire planet several times over. A nuclear war would produce a condition called “nuclear winter” in which the rising dust, resulting in the aftermath of the discharge of nuclear weapons, would blanket the earth and would prevent sunlight from reaching the earth. Crops would fail and humanity would starve to death. If you ever wondered why the elite have seed banks in Norway and underground safety enclaves under Denver International Airport, now you know why. The elite know what is coming.

Humanity is near the end of Type 0, the rite of passage into a Type 1 civilization is not guaranteed. In fact, the odds are against any Type 0 making the transition to Type 1.

This brings us to the end of the Type 0 civilization. In order to transition into a Type 1, there are certain prerequisites which must be met:

1. The development of a universal and planetary language. Today, English is the business language of the planet. 

2. The development of a global communications system. The rapidly expanding Internet would comprise the backbone of that system. 

3. The development of one economic system. Through digital currency, the world is close to this inevitability, however, the system is in the hands of psychopaths who think nothing of killing billions in wars of occupation. 

4. The development of a one-world government. Again, the banking interests on the planet dominate the governmental processes and this renders government to being the manifestation of evil and oppression. 

5. The development of technology which enables complete control of the weather and this would make droughts and other devastating weather occurrences a thing of the past. 

6. The development of space travel. Extinction level events such as comets and asteroids are always going to be a part of earth’s future. The development of advanced space travel allows for the people of the earth to meet these celestial challenges.

7. All regions of the planet must be at the same relative level of economic development and political autonomy in order to willingly embrace a Type 1 civilization. Today, approximately 80% of the GDP of the planet is dominated by less than 1% of the people and this underlies an economic disparity which will prevent the world from universally and willingly ushering in a New World Order. 

8. Intelligent and moral leadership would form the unifying bonds of collaborative leadership needed to peacefully bring this diverse planet together. 

With regard to points 7 and 8, mankind fails miserable. Today, the political and economic leadership on the planet is horribly immoral and devoid of a sense of justice and empathy with regard to the suffering of  most of the people on the planet, of which, 75% live in poverty. The avarice and evil that dominates the leadership of the planet make the collectivization of power on this planet horribly evil and corrupt. No sane person should embrace globalization in any form. Rather than planetary unification lifting people up through unification, unification will involve enslaving the masses and promises to bring great destruction to the many. This is why globalism is equated with tyranny, evil, greed, corruption, genocide and ultimately, satanism.

Type 1 Civilization

Firstly, it is important to note that the human race is not even on this scale yet. Since we still sustain our energy needs from dead plants and animals, here on Earth, we are a lowly Type 0 civilization. The preeminent physicist Michio Kaku believes we will reach Type I in 100 – 200 years time.

Dr. Kaku also believes that mankind on the planet earth has a 5% chance of achieving a  Type I designation. Kaku and other scientists believe that destruction of mankind is inevitable because of Uranium 235 and a series of chemical and biological weapons and the inevitable use of these terrible weapons in the name of acquiring more resources through wars designed to bring about planetary unification.

Interestingly, the folklore (e.g. Hopi, India, Chinese)  on the planet would have us believe that mankind has risen up before, achieved a lofty technological status only to be crushed and leaving mankind to rebuild civilization. Whether that is true or not, I agree with Dr. Kaku that mankind does not have the morality and integrity that would be needed to transition into a Type 1 civilization.

Globalism Is Inherently Evil

Globalism should be opposed by all the non-elite with every fiber in our collective being. Most of us will not survive the age that we live in. Mankind is on a one-way trip to ultimate destruction.

What does Revelations say would happen to the earth if Jesus did not intervene? What does Revelations say about the coming casualty rates as the anti-Christ attempts to establish global governance? Three out of four of us are not going to make it according to the Bible. Humanity had better hope that the Bible is accurate.  For if it is not, none of us are going to survive the transitional period that we find ourselves in.

At the end of the day, we have nobody to blame but ourselves for the mess that we find ourselves in. If we, as a human race, possessed morality and integrity, we would accept nothing less from our leaders. But if  we continue to cheat on our spouses and swindle our business competitors, then we are no better than the Rockefellers and Rothschilds who dominate life on this planet. We have ultimately done this to ourselves. Meanwhile, we wait for divine intervention to fix what we lack the moral resources to repair.
