phone call

By: Lucille Femine

The mechanical nature of today’s society becomes very real and personal when you get phone calls from seemingly live, flesh and blood people.

I’ve been getting such calls recently where I just…wasn’t…quite sure. I answer the phone, say hello, the pleasant voice says, “Hello, this is so and so.”

Today I asked, as I have before, “Are you a recording?” Surprisingly, I got a little laugh and she actually answered that. She said, “No, I’m a real person.”

So I gave her some credit and myself some doubt. Then she said something to move me on to the purpose of her call.

But I pursued my investigation. I said, “You sound like a recording.”

There was a pause and she said chirpily, “Can we continue?”

Now, normally, a live person would at least have had the courtesy to get indignant or something like that, so you know you are having an exciting, heated conversation. You know – alive!

However, I do understand that actual emotions have become politically incorrect. Take a look at the Diagnostic and Statistical Manualof Mental Disorders (DSM ) All the so-called “disorders” capture every emotion you might have (even some made up) and convert them into problems that require a pill…or two or three.

That’s because psychiatrists know deep down they cannot help people. So they defer to their many colleagues – drugs.

Enough for now of my pet peeve. I ignored her request to continue, as is my right, being a flesh and blood person. It is times like these when you feel your humanity assaulted, insulted and deceived. Therefore, you must defend it. I asked, “Where are you from?”

Silence.

Huh! Is that not a normal, not impolite question? You need to know who or what this person is representing and what they are trying to sell you. I mean, that’s a variation on a constitutional right.

One advantage, though, of being hung up by a machine is that it was just a machine; it’s hard to take it personally.

In the dead air, I mumbled an insult, fantasizing the machine that she was would break down, like a car with square wheels.

But I’m sure I won’t get that lucky; she was most likely onto the next inhuman invasion and didn’t miss a beat. Can you imagine the recording device leaving the office in a huff after such an uncooperative and mildly antagonistic response, go outside to have a cigarette? Questioning its abilities?

Only humans can do that.  As dumb as it might be to question your abilities, we still have that right. But I wouldn’t confide that to a psychiatrist or he will help you understand just how unable you truly are.

What’s scary is the sophistication of these machines that can actually interact (to some degree) with people. When you discover or even just suspect their true nature as a piece of metal, it can only mean betrayal to you.

I remember when I was a kid and answering these (very obvious) robot calls – preferably with other mischievous friends. We would say all manner of silly things, mostly insults…or…curses, that hopefully parents never heard. The voice would cheerfully repeat his speech. That was fun; we’d laugh uproariously.

But now it can make you downright uneasy. What are they expecting from the receiver of the call? Drink your fluoridated water so you will be more amenable and fooled by their sales pitch?

What’s very annoying also, is you have to waste your valuable time trying to figure out the nature of the caller – human or mechanical beast? There’s enough plastic in the world.

Let’s file these deceptive canned calls in the same category as GMO (fake, often canned food), vaccinations (fake immunity), Obamacare (fake health insurance), wars (fake protection from fake terrorists), NSA and TSA (more fake protection), fluoride (fake teeth protection) and the government (fake freedom)

You know, it could be these “canned” calls often are from real people who have succumbed so much to this mechanical, machine age, they don’t know how to be human anymore. They just practice “sounding” human to be in harmony with a world gone two dimensional.

After all, hasn’t texting become the way to communicate now where you can type in an exclamation point or smiley face and it looks like you may really feel that way?

I’m not accusing anyone of being dishonest. Sometimes I’d rather text than hear a voice – which is so much closer to the spirit at the other end….who might need help. Somehow, texting “I understand, buddy” might not cut it.

Has texting just become habit or convenience? I don’t think texting is more convenient with all the frustration of hitting wrong keys and dictatorial spell checks. And on tiny phone keyboards. It takes a lot less time to say the words.

Hopefully, through evolution, our emotions won’t be cut down to punctuation and our tongues won’t start shriveling up from lack of use.

Mike-Adams-Health-Ranger-Animals-Smile-640

by Mike Adams,

(NaturalNews) Believe it or not, I know what it’s like to live in poverty. I’ve been there myself, and in this article I’m going to share an intimate part of my history that most Natural News may find unexpected.

I’m sharing it because as the reach of Natural News has rapidly expanded across the globe, more and more people know what I stand for but they don’t necessarily know WHY.

Here’s the why.

I grew up in a middle class family in the Midwest and was gifted with tremendous cognitive abilities that were strongly encouraged by my parents through early reading programs. In school, I always performed at the top of my class, usually without any real effort. When the day came to take my college entrance exams, I was one of a small number of people in the nation who aced three out of four sections, earning a perfect score on mathematics, science and writing and getting the attention of many top universities around the country.

In my senior year of high school I was accepted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to become an electrical engineer, and I had completed college credit courses in microbiology and genetics. With extremely high aptitude in both mathematics and the sciences, career counselors insisted I go to an engineering school to study electrical engineering.

This path was not to be, however, because my family did not have the funds to pay the private school costs of an expensive, out-of-state learning institution like MIT. We were middle class, remember, and definitely not sitting on the kind of funds needed to cover an expensive high-end university.

So I went to college at a state-run university which offered me enough scholarship money to make a college degree affordable. But it wasn’t free, so I worked jobs during college to pay for housing and food. My parents also helped out as much as they could, helping me cover costs while I pursued an education. One of my jobs during college, by the way, was working as a computer salesperson for a custom PC manufacturer, where I learned to build PC computers and install them at customer sites. (One of my customers at the time was a local VA hospital, where I caught my first glimpse of veterans being given shockingly bad medical care, even decades ago.)

I got my degree, but graduated with enormous personal debt

Instead of pursuing a technical route, I found myself enjoying writing so much that I studied English composition, creative writing and numerous technical subjects including mathematics, economics, anthropology and communications. I ultimately graduated with a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in technical writing. My specialty was writing English documentation for technical concepts, especially those related to computer hardware and software technology.

Upon graduating, I took the GMAT with the intention to explore graduate school. My high score got me invitations from schools like Stanford, but I knew I couldn’t afford to stay in school any longer because, like many of today’s graduates, I had funded a large portion of my living expenses with credit cards.

Fresh out of college, I was sitting on a mountain of personal debt and no way to pay it off. The U.S. economy was in a deep recession at the time, and jobs were very difficult to come by. So, in a leap of faith that would forever alter my life plan, I decided to move to Taiwan.

I realize this sounds odd, but I had recently married an extraordinary woman who was born in Taiwan, so it wasn’t as outlandish as it might first seem. Plus, I relished the idea of learning to speak Chinese, exploring a new culture and possibly finding work in the emerging Taiwan-based technical industry.

Our brush with poverty

My wife and I gathered what little funds we still had available, packed our lives into two suitcases and moved to Taiwan. There, we rented a small, affordable apartment and hoped our money would last long enough to find work.

That’s where we ran ourselves head-first into poverty. Taiwan companies, we soon learned, didn’t hire married women because they are terrified of women having children and demanding paid time off. And I couldn’t be legally hired by anyone until I had achieved legal residency in Taiwan, a process that requires several months of waiting for paperwork to get processed by the Taiwan government.

Over and over again, we were both denied employment, and we watched our savings dwindle away at an alarming pace. To conserve money, we lived in a true “bare bones” manner, and when I say bare bones I mean it: We had only a mattress on the floor, no furniture and not even blankets. I remember using my one good coat as my only blanket, wishing that one day I could earn enough money to buy blankets and have a dining room table. (Yes, we ate dinner sitting on the floor using styrofoam plates, and “dinner” usually consisted of steamed rice and boiled eggs, the two food staples we could still afford.)

As our money ran out, we found ourselves put to the test in a true “sink or swim” scenario. Either we were going to find work, or we would soon be homeless. The rent we had paid upon our arrival was scheduled to run out in just a few weeks, and without an income we had absolutely no way to cover rent.

A moment of awakening and self-empowerment

This is when something drastically shifted in my mind and unleashed a profound change in direction that set me on a whole new course for the future. It was at this moment that I found the courage to seize my own future and start making my own fortunes instead of asking someone else to give me one. This is when my full entrepreneurial spirit kicked in — a pattern that continues to serve me to this day as editor of NaturalNews.com.

Realizing we were almost out of funds, I began searching for innovative ways to use my talents to earn money on my own while the government sat on the residency paperwork. I learned that a computer expo was about to be held at the Taipei expo center called “Computex.” Being an American, I knew I could easily gain entry onto the show floor by signing up as a buyer and visiting various booths held by Taiwan manufacturers.

On opening day, I walked onto the show room floor with a smile on my face, because I knew I was now in the epicenter of a land of enormous economic opportunity that would allow me to earn enough money to buy food, blankets and clothing… and would even give me the dollars to pay off all my student loans. The plan had come to me in a flash, much like many of the ideas I continue to receive today (I recently filed two patents, for example, on breakthrough nutritional supplements that capture radioactive isotopes and toxic heavy metals).

Here’s exactly what I did at the Taipei expo center back in the 1990′s:

I walked around the show, visiting hundreds of booths and picking up brochures and other literature from each booth. These brochures were almost all written in broken English, authored by local Taiwan computer experts who had no access to professional English writers or translators. So these companies all had amazing technology and hardware, but they were distributing literature riddled with glaring text errors.

Over the next week, I became Taiwan‘s “English professor,” using a red pen to correct all the English grammar and spelling mistakes on all the literature for hundreds of technology companies. With my wife’s help, we then printed a cover letter describing my technical writing services and placed each corrected brochure into a large envelope along with my cover letter and business card. Each envelope was mailed to the manufacturer’s address listed on their brochure, inviting them to radically upgrade their brochures, manuals and literature with the help of an expert technical writer fresh out of college from the USA.

This idea, it turned out, was pure genius. My phone rang off the hook.

I began being offered a steady flow of writing and editing projects from some of Taiwan‘s best computer manufacturers, earning fees that were far higher than what I could have possibly earned in the United States. My work covered the gamut: I wrote manuals for video games, motherboards, computer cases, image editing software and more. In just the first few weeks, I had earned enough money to buy blankets and food. In another few weeks, we had acquired a bed frame, a dining room table and additional clothing. In less than a year, I had paid off all my credit card debts and was finally on my own two feet, financially speaking.

Before long, I was a contributing journalist to a Hong Kong-based magazine called Asian Sources, covering computer hardware and software companies. I also began to receive full-time job offers from technology companies. By that time I had received a residency visa, so I was able to take a job with a Taiwan-based anti-virus software company which is now one of the three most successful anti-virus companies in the world.

At the anti-virus software company, I revolutionized their computer software manuals and on-screen user interface text. I was also given the opportunity to tour Southeast Asia and give lectures to large groups of people on the subject of computer security, where I found a natural affinity for its technical subject matter. So I toured Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and other countries, delivering computer security presentations to corporations. (Got my picture in the South China Morning Post, too, which was fun.)

The launch of a software company

My wife and I moved back to the states a few years later and started our own software company, inventing pioneering email automation technology that’s still used by banks, universities, e-commerce giants and government offices. The software I invented has been used by somewhere around 20% of Fortune 500 firms, if I remember correctly, and I sold my interest in the company many years ago to pursue natural health activism and truth-telling journalism in a world that I increasingly saw as being controlled by oppressive corporations.

By this time my own health was failing. Having burned out from working insane hours and living on processed junk food, I soon found myself suffering from borderline diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol and chronic pain. That’s what ultimately led me to Natural News — I radically transformed my own health and healed my body my changing my diet and lifestyle choices, and I wanted to share the power of that transformation with others who could benefit from that knowledge.

Today, that mission has been a remarkable success. When I started Natural News back in 2003, almost nobody knew about “organics,” BPA, aspartame, MSG, hormones in milk, the dangers of antidepressant drugs or the fact that vaccines contained mercury. But today, all those things are now common knowledge. Organics have gone mainstream. The masses demand GMO labeling. People read labels and demand honest foods made without synthetic chemicals.

Natural News was a key voice in this rapid transformation of health consciousness, climbing from zero influence to now reaching over 7 million unique readers every month. We were also part of a rising community of such voices which also include Dr. Joseph Mercola, Ronnie Cummins of the OCA, John Robbins, David Wolfe, Jeffrey Smith and many more. Each of us brought a unique personality and activism style to the internet, reaching out to tens of millions of readers with a message the world was hungry to hear: FOOD can be your medicine; and YES the corporations are lying to you most of the time.

Today Natural News is recognized as one of the most powerful content platforms in the world, and it’s continuing to expand due to the authenticity that people innately recognize in our message.

The struggle became the success

Notably, none of this ever would have been achieved if I had been given an easy life in my younger years. My family wasn’t wealthy and I never had any preferential treatment in the corporate world. I once teetered on the edge of poverty and homelessness, and yet when my back was up against the wall, I created a winning solution through entrepreneurism and strategic thinking.

That experience gives you the kind of courage it takes to be a content innovator and to take on any challenge you might ever face. Today, I know with 100% confidence that if I were to lose everything I owned and have to start over, I could launch any one of a thousand profitable ideas that would not only earn an honest living but would also help make the world a better place.

This is one reason I’m such a strong supporter of education and such an outspoken opponent of lifelong welfare: Handing people money month after month, year after year, teaches them nothing and only encourages dependence. But giving people skills, confidence and knowledge they can use in the real world turns individuals into self-sustaining income earners who can support themselves and their families for a lifetime.

My personal philosophy on money

If you saw the house I live in, you’d laugh out loud. I don’t live in a mansion on Lakeshore Drive, as the very idea of doing that contradicts my fundamental personal philosophies. I’ve never been into material wealth and have zero interest in material things for their own sake. It really is true that the most expensive vehicle I own is a John Deere tractor (which I enjoy operating from time to time on the ranch).

I don’t see money as something to be accumulated but rather something to be invested in a better future for humanity. That’s why I have always sought to have the money earned by Natural News redirected into important projects for humanity such as the construction of the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, a project that ultimately cost more than $1 million.

Long-time Natural News readers know that I live on a ranch where I routinely engage in all sorts of ranch activities, including the mundane ones like shoveling chicken poop out of the hen coops (oh what fun). I’ve milked goats, captured dozens of snakes (with a snake grabber), buried dead chickens killed by owls, protected wild deer, rounded up cattle, treated wounds on animals, drilled post holes with a tractor auger, built goat fencing (which is WAY more difficult than cattle fencing) and a thousand other ranch activities. During all this, I’ve been bit by scorpions, attacked by fire ants, surprised by wild coyotes and stung by hornets.

I’ve saved wild baby birds trapped in containers, expanded water reservoirs (“tanks”) for wildlife, and sadly buried several baby armadillos that the dogs dragged in. (They think armadillos are giant field rats.)

Living on the ranch in Texas, my best pair of boots is split wide open down the right side, my best truck is covered in pigeon poop, and my best pair of pants has holes in the right pocket caused by droplets of nitric acid from the forensic food lab digestion prep.

Here’s a picture of one of my goats during the Spring bloom of Blue Bonnets, the Texas state flower:

Living on a ranch changes your character

There’s a remarkable growth of personal character that occurs when you live a ranch. It makes you strong in spirit and moral character because you’re always dealing with life and death, forcing you to make decisions in the best interests of the living creatures under your responsibility.

I’ve had to learn effective ways to prevent rat snakes from devouring our baby chicks, and I’ve had to take a shotgun to a wounded hen that was half-eaten by a large predatory bird (to put her out of her misery). I’ve shot rattlesnakes with a 12 gauge, fired warning rifle shots at coyotes (intentionally not hitting them) and defended our chickens, geese and goats against countless predators that are always trying to eat them for dinner.

If you’re squeamish about snakes, ticks or wounded animals, you’ll never be able to really live in the country. A typical day here involve me finding a large tick on my dog, yanking it off her and tossing it to the chickens who quickly devour it. One day I had to capture a goose that suffered from a mesquite thorn in its foot, grabbing it by the neck and wrenching it under my arm to keep it under control while I removed the thorn. The goose wasn’t happy about it, but I got the thorn out, and she’s all better now. (Geese bites leave bruises on your arms and legs, by the way…)

Every day that I wake up surrounded by nature and happy animals, I realize I’m one of the luckiest persons alive on the planet today. I have a voice for positive change in the world, I’m blessed with the responsibility of caretaking animals and nature, and I never have to worry about financial poverty for as long as I live because I know I can create wealth through innovation anywhere I happen to find myself. Very few people are ever blessed with this combination of freedom and influence, and that’s one reason why I take my responsibility to the world so seriously these days. It’s also why I thank God every day for granting me the gifts that I’m tirelessly working to put to a good use for the betterment of humanity.

The Health Ranger is a real person, not a fictional character

Why does Natural News have so many readers? What I’m told is that people feel a personal connection with the Health Ranger and they “get it” when I explain that I’m working hard to protect life on our planet.

Natural News fans and readers know that the Health Ranger is a real person with real challenges, dreams and concerns for humanity. I’m not a fictional character, and this is not an act. I live what I teach, and I live to fight for the uplifting of humanity in a time of incredible chaos, destruction and oppression across our planet.

I fight for humanity because I feel for humanity. I truly understand what it’s like to live in poverty. I know firsthand the fear of not knowing where your next meal will come from. I have tremendous empathy for fellow human beings, which is one reason why I fight so hard to expose the crimes of the medical industry that causes so much needless suffering among our people.

I also fight for universal human freedom across the planet, because I know that the single most dangerous entity that causes human suffering is government gone bad. Nearly all the human suffering that has taken place on our planet across the last century was caused by governments gone bad: corruption, criminality, genocide, war and more.

Refugees only exist in our world because governments go bad. Wars only take place because governments fail to protect the peace. Today’s failed system of medicine is held in place entirely by government corruption and monopolistic practices, trapping hundreds of millions of world citizens in a system of medicine that only causes disease, suffering and financial destitution.

The curse of knowing

It pains me to see people suffering. It hurts my heart and my soul to witness the strife in our world. Even worse, I have been burdened with the “gift” (or curse) of being able to foresee many of the things that will unfold in the near future. This is not some sort of psychic ability, and I’m not claiming to have “visions from God” or any such thing. Rather, I simply have the ability to look at present-day events and see with unusual clarity where they are headed in the future.

This is why I now know — with 100% certainty — that humanity is headed for a time of tremendous suffering. What many Bible scholars call the “End Times” is nearly upon us. War, starvation, desperation, pestilence and conflict will multiply across our world in the very near future, causing unprecedented loss of life and a collapse of human civilization as we know it today.

I have faith that many of us will survive these times of great turmoil, but doing so will require bearing witness to untold suffering of those in need. Money will be all but useless in these End Times, and those of us who are prepared to survive will never be able to help the full roster of those in need. People will die by the millions across our planet, and there is little we can individually do to halt the tides of fate from crashing into the self-destructive reality that humanity has foolishly set out for itself.

My responsibility to humanity is to help save as many of those as I can. My curse is the knowledge that such action will be needed.

The coming collapse is a mathematical certainty

Many Natural News readers are not aware of this, but I correctly predicted the dot-com stock market crash of 2001, the housing bubble crash of 2006 / 2007, and I publicly predicted the massive Bitcoin crash of 2013 less than 24 hours before it took place.

I can tell you as someone who absolutely aced academic mathematics in my younger years that the global economy is headed for a disastrous debt collapse. Trillions of dollars of asset valuation (in derivatives) will vanish literally overnight. Widespread economic destruction will strike humanity like a thousand hurricanes hitting major population centers all across the world, all simultaneously.

The timing of this is impossible to predict, but its inevitability is not. What really alarms me about all this is knowing in advance that this event will usher in a global wave of poverty and destitution that is unprecedented in all of human history. This is going to put honest, hard-working people on the streets, living in destitution, through no fault of their own. And the mere awareness of knowing this is coming causes me tremendous pain.

Even worse, you and I can’t save them all. We can only teach people to get prepared and hope they have the wisdom to listen. We cannot make their decisions for them, and we cannot alter the laws of economic reality which dictate a global day of reckoning.

My commitment to Natural News readers

I commit to every person who reads Natural News that I will do everything in my power to bring you truthful information that can help you save yourself from the global chaos that now descends upon us.

I cannot give you money, or prevent your bank from collapsing, or even make sure your house sells for the price you’re asking. But what I can do is share with you the truth about my own history and how I know what it’s like to live in financial desperation… and then empower you with the knowledge you need to make sure that situation never happens to you or your loved ones as the world collapses into chaos around us.

I can share strategies that really work, such as the powerful idea that everyone should be paying attention to right now: Buy farmland with water sources on it, because that’s going to be the new “gold” of the future. A farm with a year-round spring will be worth more than gold, in fact, in the coming years.

Those who bet all their money on the U.S. dollar by holding accounts in U.S. banks will ultimately lose their shirts (and maybe their homes, too). Diversity is the key to survival, and right now you should all be trading in dollars for real assets such as land, tractors, medical supplies, precious metals, ammo, food and so on. You should also be preparing to survive a plague, a pandemic or a wave of superbugs that’s sure to sweep through the human population in the aftermath of an economic crash. Your immune system can save you, but not if you’ve weakened it with mercury injections (vaccines) and toxic chemicals (medications and chemotherapy).

Natural News will help keep you on a path of survival and courage

Truth be told, I can help keep you alive no matter what comes our way. You can count on Natural News to report the truth as best we see it, to empower you with urgent knowledge, and to do so regardless of whatever lies are being promoted by the White House or the national media.

As the good Terminator once said, “If you want to live, come with me.” Today, I’m saying something similar: If you want to survive what’s coming, keep reading Natural News. I’ve been in the financial gutter, I know how to get out, and I know how to help you protect yourself from the worst of what’s coming.

If urgent events unfold, I will post urgent alerts. If the NaturalNews.com website goes down, I will send out email alerts to the email newsletter list (subscribe below). If that fails, I’ll keep trying to get us back on the air so you can connect.

I care for you, I care about your welfare, your survival and your contribution to the new society that will inevitably follow. I want you to stay alive, informed and financially intact as much as possible. Much of the world is going to lose 90% or more of their savings in the coming years, so anyone who simply is able to hold on and break even is actually WAY ahead of the curve.

From my spirit to yours, I wish you a successful journey in the years ahead, and I hope that you may give me the gift and the honor of contributing to that journey in a positive way that makes a lasting difference in your life.

– Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

Coming to America

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

I will start this commentary with the intention of reviving memories of an America that the world once admired as the land of promise, opportunity, freedom and liberty. People from across this ever shrinking globe once dreamed of immigrating to this great nation to build a new life and raise a family free of poverty and oppression and make their fortune. Most sold every last thing they had to purchase a ticket on some tramp clipper or steamer and risked a voyage of unseen or unimaginable danger just to see that dream realized.

When they arrived here poor, tired and weakened from a long harsh journey, their last thoughts where “If I stick my hand out what will America give me?” but instead they pitched in to help build America. They worked long, hard backbreaking hours at menial jobs to slowly advance their position and status in their newly adopted country.

immigration

They were adventurous, industrious and resourceful. They fought in wars to protect their new found liberty, they educated themselves to our language, customs and culture, and worked hard to acquire citizenship in a land they came to love, not only for themselves, to solidify their position in this society, but most of all to facilitate a better life for their children.

These immigrants were proud to be Americans to a point of extreme, never taking for granted what they considered their good fortune (no matter how trivial by most standards), nor did they ever forget the reasons that had motivated them to leave their distant homes in the first place.

These where the true backbone of this country, its builders, and dreamers …

Now fast forward to the present and the steady stream if illegal immigrants flooding into this already overburdened country and run a quick comparison.

I will not try to convince you that all are bad at heart, because that is not true. And some of their expectations and misunderstandings are by intention and the fault of a government with an agenda … this government!

But what we in reality face is a vast majority who can’t speak English and are not so very willing or motivated to learn, keeping them isolated from mainstream society, employment or serious education, and choosing to congregate with their own culture rather than assimilate into the native culture.

Illegal Immigrants

Instead of these immigrants striving to become a integral part of the society that is hosting and indeed supporting them in so many ways (welfare. Healthcare, housing, education), this government institutes policies that force the American society to accommodate them and their shortcomings, such as the aforementioned language barrier. These actions ultimately result in the retardation of the need or ambition for learning or working and facilitates the perpetuation of this burden on you and I … and you have to know this government is very aware of this.

A large majority are being supported by a government (through our tax dollars) intentionally bent on perpetuating this burden on the already overburdened taxpayers to suit an agenda that is not in America’s interest.

But there is also a large number who are outright hostile towards this nation, seeking only what they can get with no investment of labor or ambition and denigrating their benefactors at every possible chance.

These individuals are destructive to society, perpetrating and perpetuating crime and larceny on their newly adopted communities in the form of criminal gangs. They also see America as the land of opportunity, but not in the way of past immigrants. They don’t like us Americans for who we are, and are not shy to say so … but they seem to be very OK with America for what they can get … or take!

This is NOT about bigotry or prejudice because neither the language you speak nor the color of your skin make any difference in this scenario … This is about the fundamental change we were promised … and are getting in spades!

America is a compassionate society and we have always welcomed immigrants from across this planet with open arms, but as equals in the application of the laws of this land and in the services and benefits rightfully earned. In plain words, what applies to us should damn well apply to you, both legally and socially! But when illegals receive preferential treatment with respect to the law and services without ever having contributed to said benefits or services, over those who have worked hard and contributed to the payment of said services and faithfully obeyed the law, a fundamental trust has been broken and anger and resentment rightfully swells in the heartland of America.

I look at these two scenarios, past and present, and I wonder where it all went wrong. When America stopped being the land of promise and opportunity, the shining castle on the hill, a place where hard work and social participation lead to a life of reward and increasing prosperity … Camelot, and became the welfare capitol of the world.

We as Americans are literally the most generous culture on this planet giving more to charity and donating more time to the less fortunate than any society in this global community, even with our current economic woes. But you can only be used so much, abused so often and taken for a fool one too many times … then …

Well, that chapter has not been written yet but the pen hovers over the parchment as this story unfolds before our eyes …

The Liberty Beacon project

cia

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

Every organization has an agenda, otherwise they would not need a structured organization. Organizations are formed to accomplish goals, and to accomplish stated goals an agenda is required.

Now you must also consider that these organizations would wish to put their best side forward where public scrutiny is most likely to occur … to represent that agenda in a positive and acceptable fashion to those they wish to effect or manipulate commercially, socially or politically.

And in the case of our intelligence agencies, who have suffered major blows to their credibility and public trust lately, we must imagine this is a paramount issue, to clean up their act … so to speak …

Enter the Style Guide. A mechanism to facilitate that best side forward portion of said agenda. A guide to what is acceptable or not by said agents and employees who represent this organization. Many organizations have style guides as a way to keep their constituent, customer or target-facing communications consistent and on-brand. The CIA is no different.

But the real chuckle here is that Style Guides are predicated on a show of respect, concern and a definite lack of hostility … until you get to the CIA Style Guide that is, and after giving it even a cursory glance, there is very little doubt left in your mind that it came from the ideas and ideals of those who covet and project power for a living (both legal and illegal). Even the example-based portions of the guide stand well outside the realm of social normalcy … but then what did you expect … This is the infamous CIA …

Excerpt from the publications preface:

“In dealing with foreign policy and national security, our government has many sources of insight on which to draw.

NWO1

By: Lucille Femine

As most liberty-minded people know, which is thankfully a growing crowd, we are facing suppression on an unparalleled scale. It’s hard to say how far back you have to go to reach a worse era but, still, I wouldn’t risk trading this one for that one – as if we could. We can only go forward.

What exactly are these globalists and others of their mindset doing? I mean, besides poisoning our food, taking our water, our health, our property, our families, our education, our free country?

There must be a common dominator down there in those minds seething with evil that drives them to such deadly solutions, thinking it will help them survive. Yes, that is what they are operating on. In their minds, they are not doing “evil” but simply trying to survive with all us enemies working hard to do them in. If, one day, they fully realized their intent was truly evil, they would do themselves in. But too many have not yet had that enlightening moment.

For example, whether Hitler actually died by his own hand or was murdered, the result was the same – he did himself in.

When madmen treat the harmless majority of people with such defensive energy, there must be a motive that runs through all their activities.

Aside from the extreme, unreasoning paranoia which is the driving force above it all, the “inspiration,” if you will, what is the technical aspect of it all? How best do they achieve their goals in the real world?

Well, they have lost contact with themselves as spiritual beings and consider they are just bodies. As Pavlov decided, we are not much more than animals operating on “stimulus-response,” and thus can be controlled.

They consider then, that it’s good and proper to help the rest of humanity become aware of our true nature – a piece of meat and nothing else.

After all, many animals need to be controlled, right? And since we humans have a much higher intellect than animals, it follows that we need more control. Here, logic has truly been divorced from the natural love for humanity.

A quote about a psychologist whose work was later taken up by psychiatrists sums up this general viewpoint and has served governments very well. In fact, Nazi psychiatrists were imported here after the war where they continued this oppressive practice. Witness psychiatric drugs and shock treatment.

One of the essential problems with psychology today is its reliance upon psychiatric or biological behavioral models—a far cry from its foundations. Psychology initially meant the study of the soul.  However, all this changed in the late 1800s when German psychologist Wilhelm Wundt declared man was an animal.

The logic also prevails for them that if we have to be a piece of meat, then there must be something terribly wrong and dangerous about being a spiritual being. And there is – to them. A free being, aware of his true identity, (and often theirs) is very difficult to control.

 So you see how this widespread, popular philosophy has come in very handy for those who want to control and manipulate the rest of us who simply want to be happy and let others be.

 The extreme irony of their thinking is that if they just let everyone alone to simply live and prosper, they would be safe. The fact is, if a person is truly alive, happy, fairly unafraid and expanding, he only wants that for others.

The best way to survive is to be aware of their thinking, their motives and their insanity.  And then you would act accordingly and joined with others for the best result. You can only control what you understand. “Wake up, America” is simply not enough. “Wake up and KNOW” is more like it.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.”

Sun Tzu

Termination-of-Parental-Rights-570x321[1]

By: Daniel Taylor

Bertrand Russell 1928: “State may be expected to assume the role of the father”

Recent headlines have reminded us that government, when unrestrained, will reach into every aspect of our lives.

As reported recently, Christine Duffy, a mother from Michigan, was shocked to find that a new medical law required her child to have a  “private” conversation with a nurse prior to every doctors visit. Duffy said, “The nurse would also inform my children that the doctor’s office is a safe place for them to receive information about STDs, HIV and birth control. That is what the nurse would be chatting about with my children without any pesky parental oversight.”

whither-mankind

A 1928 book titled Whither Mankind: A Panorama of Modern Civilization outlines predictions of the future of the then intelligentsia of scientists and engineers, most of whom were open eugenicists or sympathetic to the idea. Not surprisingly, the book is held at the Eugenics Survey Library of Vermont, assembled by prominent eugenicist Henry Perkins. Bertrand Russell, scientists and philosopher famous for his writings on the ideal scientific society of elites, provided a little known essay for Whither Mankind. In it he re-iterates his other published works on the inevitable takeover of a scientific elite. As quoted, Russell states:

“…the State increasingly interferes between parents and children for example, by insisting on education and forbidding physical cruelty. It would seem likely that this tendency will continue; more particularly, the State may be expected to assume the role of the father by taking over economic responsibility for the child, on the ground that many fathers cannot be trusted in this matter. If so, there will inevitably be a breakdown of the family, which must modify social psychology profoundly, producing, in place of individuals, well-drilled armies of intelligent but submissive Janissaries, without individual differences, and without loyalties other than their loyalty to the State.”

In reality this philosophy of a state takeover of life dates back over 2000 years ago to Plato. The activities of the ruling elite in controlling population, writes Plato in The Republic, must be kept secret. He writes, “…these goings on must be a secret which the rulers only know, or there will be a further danger of our herd… breaking out into rebellion.”

These ideas have manifested in different forms across the globe. Battling ideas of liberty and tyranny have ripped through time and history. If all firewalls of Constitution, morality and foresight are lost, the ruling elite will drag humanity into a pit of despair from which there will be no escape. In the words of C.S. Lewis, “…we may well thank the beneficent obstinacy of real mothers, real nurses, and (above all) real children for preserving the human race in such sanity as it still possesses”.

MS 13

This MS-13 gangster is coming to your neighborhood armed with IED’s, anti-tank weapons, automatic weapons and WMD’s

 

By TLB Contributor: .

There is good news and bad news. The good news is that the Border Patrol actually arrested an illegal border crosser. The bad news is that the person is the wife of an American ex-Marine veteran and should have been legally allowed to cross the border.

KFOX 14 is reporting that Oleksandra Bronova, a Ukrainian National, was singled out by border agents as she tried to cross the border and she has  subsequently been placed in an maximum security prison. Bronova originally fled to Mexico when it became too dangerous to continue to live in Ukraine. People from Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and West Africa, where these is a current Ebola outbreak, are free to come to the United States, but a war refugee from Ukraine WHO WAS LEGALLY TRAVELING WITH HER AMERICAN HUSBAND, IS NOT WELCOME!

 The Worst Has Not Yet Been Revealed

In this column, I have reported that this new wave of illegal immigrants pose a potentially catastrophic and pandemic health risk to Americans, some are connected to human smuggling (i.e. child sex trafficking rings) and all threaten to overwhelm American infrastructure should the onslaught of immigrants continue.

Even Arizona Governor, Jan Brewer, has challenged President Barack Obama’s administration to investigate whether or not, some of these illegal aliens who are flooding across the border, are from MS-13 and are  threatening national security by accompanying the illegal immigrant children across the border. MS-13 is the most violent and dangerous street gang in the world. However, we are not just importing thugs, these MS-13 criminal foot soldiers are entering the country in great numbers and they are entering as a well-trained and well-armed paramilitary group with provable and strong terrorist ties to known Islamic terror groups.

“The administration’s refusal to properly verify that violent criminals are not among those entering the United States shows an alarming lack of concern for our homeland’s security,” Brewer wrote. “As a nation, we cannot sit back and allow this policy to continue”. It should be noted that as  reported in an earlier document, these MS-13 gang members, some of whom have admitted to murder and torture in their home countries, are being held for placement inside the United States by the Border Patrol under the direction Homeland Security.

MS-13 Members Flooding Across the Border

MS-13 was founded by immigrants fleeing El Salvador’s civil war more than two decades ago. Its founders took lessons learned from the brutal conflict and are in the process of bringing their people and the lessons learned to the United States.

Border Patrol Agents assigned to the Nogales Placement Center, have recently discovered that 16 unaccompanied alien children (13 El Salvadoran males, two Guatemalan males and one Honduran male) currently being held at the Nogales detention center belong to MS-13. The MS-13 gang members admitted to their gang associations following a discovery of graffiti at the detention center. Homeland Security was notified and nothing was done. The number may seem small, however, these are only the ones that were caught in just one area along the border. Art Del Cueto, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, Arizona told the National Review that officers who recognize gang tattoos on the minors are supposed to treat them like everyone else and to completely ignore their MS-13 affiliations.

MS-13 Has Begun to Target American Citizens Deep Inside the U.S.

Minneapolis-St. Paul is a long way away from the Mexican home of the Sinaloa drug cartel, but that didn’t stop three cartel enforcers from making their way up to Minnesota in an attempt to hunt down two teenagers they accused of stealing drugs and money from a stash house.

The three MS-13 enforcers were allegedly sent by the Sinaloa cartel to find the people who stole 30 pounds of methamphetamine and $200,000 from a stash house in St. Paul. The two teens that the cartel hit men kidnapped were tortured, had their lives and that that of their families threatened and were told to find the missing drugs or come up with $300,000 to compensate the cartel, according to court documents obtained by the (Minneapolis)Star Tribune newspaper.

Federal authorities told the Star Tribune that they are not shocked that the Sinaloa cartel would go to such lengths, but what worried them is that instead of using their own people, the cartel apparently hired the hit men from MS-13. This is very ominous because MS-13 is now associated with Islamic terror groups. Also, the FBI estimates that there are 10,000 MS-13  gang members in 46 states, the gang has expanded beyond its initial and local roots and they engage in crimes ranging from kidnapping and murder to drug smuggling, murder for hire and human trafficking.

MS-13 now has a large presence in Southern California, Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia and all areas with substantial Salvadoran populations. And in any community where the gang operates, MS-13 is also known for targeting residents and business owners for extortion from violent protection rackets. They have a growing presence in Central America, the United States and in Europe. And as you will see, they are the next al-Qaeda. And for the CIA, they constitute soldiers of opportunity.

Not Gangsters but Terrorists Possibly Armed with WMD’s

There is incontrovertible evidence that criminal drug cartels, like Los Zetas, have not only used MS-13 gangsters as hit men and child sex traffickers, but so has the Juarez Cartel  and the Barrio Azteca to enforce their will, but Los Zetas have also conducted training in parts of Central and South America, and have even allowed MS-13 gangsters to lead in operations as when “El Comandante Kilo” operated in San Fernando on behalf of Los Zetas. This training consists of two parts, military training and assassination. In plain corporate language, the Mexican drug cartels are outsourcing paramilitary activities such as assassinations and terrorism.

illegal-immigration

Job applicants or terrorists?

A very disturbing and  recent report from the International Assessment and Strategy Center stated that MS-13 is moving away from handguns to the use of AK-47′s, along with grenades, rocket propelled grenade launchers, and light anti-tank weapons! The same think tank also reported that MS-13 gang recently acquired multiple shoulder-fired SA-7 anti-aircraft missile launchers obtained  from an open arms market in El Salvador from left over former civil war stockpiles. MS-13 is equipping its forces with these weapons as they can easily knockout helicopters and airplanes from the skies and these weapons can be obtained for a mere $15,000. This is chump change for a gang associated with the drug cartels. The same report went on to state that MS-13 has begun to smuggle drugs, weapons and human beings for the Zetas. MS-13 members are being trained at Zetas camps outside San Salvador and the training includes high level military training. Think TET offensive from the Viet Nam War. MS-13 is well-armed enough to take over cities by knocking out the headquarters of local police forces in a simultaneous series of attacks in which WMD’s are introduced on American soil. If you think this is far-fetched, please keep reading.

Paul Williams, a former FBI Consultant, wrote a book shortly after 9/11 and stated that reliable reports had reached United States officials that al Qaeda operatives were able to get at least two nuclear suitcase bombs into the United States. Williams went on to state that bin Laden had previously used his vast wealth, derived from control of Afghanistan’s poppy trade, to pay off high ranking MS-13 leaders. Williams further asserted that bin Laden paid as much as $50,ooo to smuggle sleeper agents into the United states. Williams is not alone in this belief as the author of Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America, Brigitte Gabriel, stated that there are terrorists coming through our southern border due to the cooperation and joint efforts of  of MS-13  and Hezbollah and they are intent on introducing a Hiroshima event on American soil!

Back in 2010, an internal memo was leaked from the Tucson Police Department. which stated that Islamic terrorist groups are commencing operations in Mexico and forming alarming ties with the country’s brutal drug cartels. In turn, the drug cartels are now associated with Hezbollah. The memo also references a large weapons stockpile in Mexico as evidenced by the 2010 Tijuana arrest of Hezbollah militant Jameel Nasr, who was given the job of establishing a well-armed Hezbollah network in Mexico and South America. Nasr was apparently bringing this terror network north when he was captured. The memo also discussed the April 2009 arrest of Jamal Yousef in New York, which exposed a huge cache of assault rifles, hand grenades, explosives and anti-tank munitions. According to the report, the weapons were stored in Mexico, but only after being smuggled from Iraq by members of Hezbollah. As a temporary aside, where do you think ISIS is getting its weapons? The preceding references contained in the Tucson Police memo just answered that question.

Also, revealed in the report, according to Yousef, was the fact that the weapons were stored in Mexico after being smuggled from Iraq by members of Hezbollah.The memo further warns that there could be dire consequences due to the new level of cooperation between Hezbollah and Mexico’s drug partnerships and this could be disastrous given Hezbollah’s advanced and new weapons capabilities. The report goes on to state that some Mexican criminal organizations have started using small IEDs which is clearly illustrative of the use of car bombs which is a hallmark trait of Islamic terrorists. IED’s are clearly the least of our worries with regard to the increased influx of MS-13 terrorists. By the way, it was reported, yesterday, that TSA is allowing the illegal immigrants to fly on airplanes without an ID.

Dot Connecting

We already know that MS-13 has a long reach inside of the United States as evidenced by cases such as the Minneapolis-St. Paul event described above. It is now documented that MS-13 has a long-standing relationship with the Mexican drug cartels and frequently carries out assassinations on behalf of the cartels. There is absolute proof that Hamas and Hezbollah are in bed with the Mexican drug cartels. Therefore, it is not a leap of logic to now be certain that MS-13 is serving as operation agents for Islamic terrorists and that link has been conclusively established. This makes a lot of sense because it would make good business practice that the Mexican drug cartels would partner with Islamic terrorists because the cartels can gain smuggling and high grade weapons from Islamic terrorists as well as access to low cost heroin from Afghanistan. (Is this why the war in Afghanistan, without any identifiable military objectives, is still raging?)

It would also make sense that this unholy alliance would be fermented since the gun running of Fast and Furious was exposed and supposedly dried up. Subsequently, the arming of the cartels can continue unabated. Interestingly, the American people thought that Fast and Furious was only about undermining the Second Amendment by supplying arms to border drug gangs. It looks now like Fast and Furious was about arming the drug cartels (i.e. MS-13) so they could carry out operations inside of the United States. And what operations would these be? Simple, the drug cartels now have the means to carry out the same kind of terror on American soil (e.g. assassination of judges, police and media) as happens in Mexico with officials who do not cooperative with the neo-feudalism, narco-kleptocracy being brought into any area controlled by the drug cartels. However, there is one more beneficiary from this alliance which should scare the living hell out of every American.

The Islamic terrorists benefit from the impending lawlessness and its open borders because Islamic terrorists from the already identified groups can make it across our southern border armed with chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. Don’t think it’s no possible. Just ask the Border Patrol agents in Nogales, AZ., who are finding MS-13 graffiti on their holding cells.

Partnerships between Mexican organized crime and Islamic militants are mutually beneficial. The cartels are able to gain smuggling and weapons expertise, as well as access to cheap heroin from Afghanistan and Iran. The Islamic terrorists gain access to highly valued U.S. targets from military trained units who will act as their proxy troops in the coming false flag attacks.

The operational details of this unholy alliance will be laid out in the next part in this series. And in the next article, we have confirmation of the impending false flag attacks from high ranking state patrol officials and former members of our American military.

Robin Shooting

By TLB Contributor: Robin Koerner

Last month I did something I’d done only once before: I went to a range and shot some guns. Lots of guns. All shapes, ages and sizes.

This is a very strange thing to do for a guy born British. Guns feature nowhere in British culture.

Accordingly, I was unsurprised by the reaction of my mother when I called home and told her that I’d had a great time learning about firearms and discovering I wasn’t a bad shot, even with a World War II Enfield. “That’s the last thing I’d ever imagine you’d enjoy doing,” she said to me. She wasn’t being judgmental: It was an expression of genuine surprise.

“That’s because you just can’t imagine why nice or normal people would enjoy guns,” I replied. “Because you don’t know any. No Brits know any.”

Mom thoughtfully agreed.

Many decent people who have no interest in guns simply can’t imagine what it must be like to be someone who is passionate about something whose primary purpose is to kill people. Although the gun debate is waged using words, logic and fact (by both sides, to different ends, of course), the arguments constructed using these three tools are not what brings people to their pro- or anti-gun position. Rather, most people are emotionally or intuitively committed to a position first and deploy these tools retroactively in defense of their position. Despite what we like to think, we form most if not all of our political views this way. Studies show, time and time again, that David Hume was right when he claimed:

[A]s reasoning is not the source, whence either disputant derives his tenets; it is in vain to expect that any logic, which speaks not to the affections, will ever engage him to embrace sounder principles.

What most anti-gun people are really feeling (rather than thinking) is that there has to be something strange about you if you like guns. I mean, why would you get turned on by something whose primary purpose is to kill people? If you do, you can’t be like me. You are sufficiently different that I am suspicious of your worldview, or your motives, or both. You are culturally “other.”

Productive engagement, and the pervasive acceptance of individual rights, involves bridging such cultural gaps. With the gun-rights issue, as with all others, the best way to do so is the same way all forms of cultural segregation (because that is what we are really talking about) have been permanently broken down over time: Get to know, and spend personal time with, those on the other side of the gap.

It works both ways. People who favor more gun regulation are not actually motivated by a desire to take away your liberty. And people who favor robust Second Amendment protections do not have a lower threshold for the acceptance of violence or aggression. You’ll know this when you have them as friends, and having such friends causes the all-or-nothing arguments that make such dramatic claims about the fundamental differences between you and the people on the other side of the issue cease to be credible.

This mistaking of differences of cultural identity for political differences, or the erroneous idea that political differences drive different cultural identities, rather than the other way around, severely hobbles our ability to protect all our liberties and empowers political partisans who have a vested interest in maintaining power by keeping us insolubly divided.

Just as gun owners form a kind of (albeit highly porous) subculture, the LGBT community does so too. Some people who have been brought up in a socially conservative or religious subculture simply can’t imagine being able to do (let alone actually doing) the things that those in another subculture (LGBT) do as a matter of course. Again, if I can’t even imagine your experience or desires, then we are deeply culturally separated. Just as gun-control advocates feel a twinge of disgust, or at least condescension, toward the culture of gun owners, some of our religious friends feel similarly about the LGBT subculture. Of course, “disgust” is a very strong word, and most of us sublimate it deeply, but it captures the sense that the division among our “political” subcultures is more visceral than rational. Reason is applied later to justify in the conscious mind the position that the subconscious makes us emotionally comfortable with.

Now, I have a distinctly conservative streak when it comes to the raising of children, and I have an instinctive respect for any political position that is genuinely motivated by requiring adults to do the best by the children whom they create. I can understand, then, the real discomfort of those who sincerely believe that children benefit from having male and female role models at home, and that society should be very wary of sanctioning anything that does not place the well-being of children above the proclivities of their parents.

However, two of my friends — and two of the kindest and most responsible people I know — happen to be gay partners who adopted a daughter. Phil and Michael are giving their adopted daughter a wonderful life. Their love for her is boundless. The security, values and richness of experience that they are providing her will set her up forever. And the gap between the life that Mia Joy has and the life she would otherwise have had makes the general question “Should gay couples be able to adopt?” sound like something between silly and faintly insulting when applied to this particular, inspiring case.

I am blessed with close gay friends with whom I identify as much as I do with many of my straight friends. So for me the question of gay marriage and adoption, for example, is not so much a political argument that needs logically “deciding”; rather, the very intuition of the existence of some gay “other” on which the very argument depends has disappeared. As that cultural gap is bridged through actual human relationship, the separateness of that “other group,” on which any suspicion I may have of their motivations depends, ceases to exist.

I’ve had many gay friends for many years. And now I am getting some gun-owning friends too. And because they are all good people (they’d not be my friends otherwise, would they?), I see both groups as doing essentially the same thing when they defend their rights: insisting on being allowed to be themselves and defend the validity of the way they experience the world — as long as they harm no one else.

Of course, if you’re reading this and you don’t like guns, you’re thinking, “That’s wrong. Guns harm people.” Not in the hands of my friends, they don’t. And if you’re reading this and you don’t like gays, you’re thinking, “That’s wrong. Gay adoption is bad for the children.” Not by my friends, it isn’t.

If I were going to take a stand against gay adoption, I would have to imagine saying to Phil and Mike, “You should not be allowed to do what you have done for Mia Joy, and I would use the force of law to stop you.” Even if I could make an abstract political argument against gay adoption, I cannot say that to them in good conscience. And if I were going to take a stand against my open-carrying friend Rob, I’d have to imagine saying to him, “You should not be allowed to own that to protect your family — or to protect your country against a tyrannical state, should it ever come to that, and I would use the force of law to stop you.” Even if I could make an abstract political argument against private gun ownership, I could not say that to him in good conscience.

By becoming friends with Phil and Mike, and with Rob, their respective subcultures cease to be alien to me.

The truth is that because I know Rob as a grounded, kind man, I also know that the rest of us are better off when people like him have a few of the guns — rather than their all being in the hands of our political masters. And because I know Phil and Michael as being rather like Rob in those respects, I simply know that the rest of us are better off when people like them have a few of America’s children.

And there’s not a political argument in sight.

You’ll appreciate my delight, then, when, during my day at the range with Rob, he told me that his local organization in defense of the Second Amendment accepted the open offer made by the organizers of his city’s annual Pride event to support them by marching with them. The two groups have now formed an ongoing alliance, reflecting the fact, of course, that they are really doing the same thing: protecting the right of people to do anything they want for people they love as long as they harm no one else.

That’s when you know that you really care about liberty: The excitement of marching in support of someone who wants to protect and celebrate their freedom overcomes your “cultural discomfort” (should you have any) with what they want to do with it.

If we can challenge ourselves by focusing as much on nurturing our human connection with our political opponents by relating to them as people, we’d discover a wonderful paradox: We’d all feel, from our opposed initial positions, increased success in getting our opponents to see the world our way.

How is that possible?

It’s possible because collapsing the subcultural divides in our society through actual human relationship does something bigger and better than resolving our political differences: It dissolves them. It dissolves them because it reveals that much of what we thought were differences of political principle are really rationalizations of the suspicion we feel toward those whose experiences and pleasures we simply cannot imagine sharing.

As in history, so in psychology: Culture precedes politics.

Sherrie Wilcox discovery of FEMA coffins 50 miles outside of Atlanta.

By TLB Contributor: 

I am presently vacationing at Ground Zero, the location of the greatest pandemic threat in American history and it is all related to unscreened immigrants.I am reading and watching the local news and gathering information in a manner that most across the country are not seeing because of the national censorship in the MSM. This week alone, I have referenced related immigration stories from San Diego’s Channel 5, 10 and 15. When contrasted to the national media, the crickets are chirping.

What I have learned from these local reports is that sick and diseased immigrants are being placed in the general population of the United States. I have also learned that there is a conspiracy of silence associated with DHS and HHS and what they are forcing the Border Patrol to do with these new immigrants. There is also a Gestapo and East German Stasi mentality that is permeating this series of events. And since I am invoking German parallels, let’s add in a Reichstag false flag moment as well. These events and what is to follow have been carefully planned for and the evidence trail goes back almost five years. Along these same lines, the CDC and HHS have tipped their hand and are plainly telling the American public what is coming and how we are all at risk.

How a Pandemic Gets Started

Late last week, at approximately 1AM, a busload of illegal immigrants pulled out of the Chula Vista checkpoint and onto a local San Diego freeway. There were two Border Patrol agents sitting behind the driver wearing surgical masks.  A San Diego 10News vehicle tried to follow the bus onto the freeway, but Border Patrol SUVs blocked the entrance to the freeway. We now are finding out that 10 people were transported to local hospitals in the San Diego area for treatment of such ANNOUNCED maladies as scabies and head lice (This Sunday evening, from 11pm-Midnight, Central, I am interviewing Barb Peterson as she will be describing how scabies can be used to transmit far more serious illnesses).

This official Border Patrol admission marks the first time that the American people had official confirmation that sick and diseased illegal immigrants are being knowingly and purposely being moved into the general population of the United States. An American child, who is in the hospital to have their tonsils removed. along with his visiting parents, attending nurses and physicians, may unwittingly become carriers for a for more serious illness with the potential to rip through the general population as a result of these irresponsible actions which are placing all of us at risk.

Border Patrol union representative, Ron Zermeno, told San Diego 10News the influx of detained undocumented immigrants pose a significant risk to the health of agents as well as national security as a whole.

FOX News Has a Rare Moment of Clarity

Todd Starnes, FOX News contributor and talk show host, has interviewed unidentified sources including doctors, nurses and counselors who say that while working with the new illegal immigrants at the Lackland AFB in San Antonio, TX., and he found that these civilian employees are being threatened, by the East German Stasi contingent of the Department of Homeland Security, with prison if they report how bad the health conditions are and how much at risk the American public is being placed under.

Here is an excerpt from the Starnes report:

“We have so many kids coming in that there was no way to control all of the sickness – all this stuff coming into the country,” she (an unidentified nurse) said. “We were very concerned at one point about strep going around the base.”

Both the counselor and the nurse said their superiors tried to cover up the extent of the illnesses.

“When they found out the kids had scabies, the charge nurse was adamant – ‘Don’t mention that. Don’t say scabies,’” the nurse recounted. “But everybody knew they had scabies. Some of the workers were very concerned about touching things and picking things up. They asked if they should be concerned, but they were told don’t worry about it.”

The Starnes report issued an ominous warning:

“My sources say Americans should be very concerned about the secrecy of the government camps.”

Key Arizona Officials Speak Out

While appearing on Hannity, Sheriff Joe Arpaio stated that the border patrol crisis is a deliberate ploy designed to force amnesty. I would suggest to Arpaio that with the definitive spread of illnesses among this population, there may be a much more sinister possibility such as the one that one of Arizona’s most prominent physicians, Dr. Jane Orient spoke of when I interviewed her 10 days ago. Dr. Orient used words such as “collusion” and “bioweapons attack” during the course of our conversation. Dr. Orient expressed concern that the Border Patrol is being threatened with prosecution for speaking out about the looming health crisis. Further, she stated that the Border Patrol has taken on casualties as a result of their close contact with immigrants as they have one confirmed case of drug resistant TB and a multiple cases of Border Patrol agents contracting scabies, which could carry very serious diseases and viruses. Dr. Orient is also appearing on the aforementioned, July 13th show from 9-10pm. The show can be accessed here by clicking on the “listen” icon in the upper right hand corner.

Where Is All This Headed?

Also appearing on this week’s talk show is Alana Cook, who first brought to my attention a memo from the Health and Human Services (HHS) as administered by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in which it is abundantly clear that the CDC is planning for mass casualties. By the way, it was HHS that denied Congressman Bridenstine entry into Ft. Sill to see what going on with illegal immigrant children in a story that appeared in this column, yesterday.

The date of the memo is July 1, 2014 and this makes the timing of this release, with regard to the above reported events, a little more than coincidental.

HHS has awarded more than $840 million to continue improving emergency preparedness of state and local public health and health care systems. HHS claims that these health systems are vital to protecting health and saving lives during a disaster. “The programs provide resources needed to ensure that local communities can respond effectively to infectious disease outbreaks, natural disasters, or chemical, biological, or radiological nuclear events”. With regard to the infectious disease outbreaks, HHS and the CDC are a day late and a dollar short. The damage has already been done.

This Has Been Planned for Long Time

In early 2009, the News Director for The Common Sense Show, reported the following events on a broadcast of The Common Sense Show which applies to the story at hand. 

From the Daily Newscaster inside sources reveals that FEMA & DHS are preparing for mass graves and martial law near Chicago

 

  • In late December 2008 municipal officials were invited to Indianapolis for a briefing on the state of Indiana. There were told if industry were to collapse for example GM going bankrupt resulting in mass unemployment, that a depression would soon follow and municipalities could expect to loose 40% of their funds.
  • Every county in the nation would be required to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan.
  • The county should prepare a plan to vaccinate the entire population within 48 hours and practice the plan several times.
  • FEMA inquired to where mass graves could be placed in the county and would they accept bodies from elsewhere.
  • The sheriff’s department via the state sheriff association was told that no .223 ammunition rounds would be available as the military would be purchasing all stocks.
  • The county was asked to make plans for “hardening” of police and fire stations, putting in hardened bunker type buildings around town.
  • The county was asked to make plans for the possibility of up to 400,000 refugees from Chicago

 

At about the same time, Infowars reported the same kind of observations in Houston, Texas and later in Phoenix, AZ.

fema coffins sherrie 2Sherrie Wilcox went looking for FEMA Camps and found this outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

What is being reported here is the fulfillment of a long-standing plan.

Conclusion

Last week, it was revealed in this column that the government was advertising for “escorts” in order to bring unaccompanied illegal alien minors across the border. The date of this advertisement was January, 2014, seven months ago. It was also reported that there are multiple sightings of UN vehicles in our country. It was also reported here that the UN has been advertising for the position of  “resettlement officers who are experienced in gun confiscation”.

When we look at the posed health risks by this “sudden” influx of illegal aliens, along with the evidence of the planning for mass casualties dating back at least 5 years ago and more evidence that this planning and funding is still ongoing, the conclusions are not hard to reach.

Now that Israel seems intent on invading Syria and the UN trucks are on the move near Brownsville, TX., as of this writing, perhaps some serious dot connecting is in order and that will be the topic of the next installment in this series.

Slavery & Serfdom | Human Farming: The Story of Your Enslavement Whether you think of it as an analogy or as an accurate portrayal of the human condition, Stefan Molyneux’s controversial essay about the rise and (hopefully) fall of the tax farmer will make you think. Early humans could only produce what they consumed. There was no excess for a slave master to steal, so there was no point owning slaves. However, when agricultural improvements allowed for excess crop production, human ownership became an advantage. History tells us that early governments were in fact a ruling class of slave hunters who believed that because humans could produce more than they consumed, they were worth capturing, breaking in and owning. Early Egyptian and Chinese empires were in reality human farms where captured humans were domesticated and owned like any other livestock. – KK

Stefan Molyneux | Human Farming: The Story of Your Enslavement

Human Farming: The Story of Your Enslavement This is the story of your enslavement; how it came to be and how you can finally be free.

Like all animals, human beings want to dominate and exploit the resources around them. At first, we mostly hunted and fished and ate off the land - but then something magical and terrible happened to our minds.

We became, alone among the animals, afraid of death, and of future loss. And this was the start of a great tragedy, and an even greater possibility…

You see, when we became afraid of death, of injury and imprisonment, we became controllable — and so valuable — in a way that no other resource could ever be.

The greatest resource for any human being to control is not natural resources, or tools, or animals or land — but other human beings.

You can frighten an animal, because animals are afraid of pain in the moment, but you cannot frighten an animal with a loss of liberty, or with torture or imprisonment in the future, because animals have very little sense of tomorrow.

You cannot threaten a cow with torture, or a sheep with death. You cannot swing a sword at a tree and scream at it to produce more fruit, or hold a burning torch to a field and demand more wheat. You cannot get more eggs by threatening a hen – but you can get a man to give you his eggs by threatening him.

Human farming has been the most profitable — and destructive — occupation throughout history and it is now reaching its destructive climax.

Human society can not be rationally understood until it is seen for what it is: a series of farms where human farmers own human livestock.

Some people get confused because governments provide healthcare and water and education and roads, and thus imagine that there is some benevolence at work. Nothing could be further from reality.

Farmers provide healthcare and irrigation and training to their livestock.

Some people get confused because we are allowed certain liberties, and thus imagine that our government protects our freedoms.

But farmers plant their crops a certain distance apart to increase their yields — and will allow certain animals larger stalls or fields if it means they will produce more meat and milk.

In your country, your tax farm, your tax farmer grants you certain freedoms not because he cares about your liberties, but because he wants to increase his profits.

Are you beginning to see the nature of the cage you were born into?

head-on-stick

There have been four major phases of human farming:

PHASE ONE: Direct and Brutal Slavery in Ancient Egypt

The first phase, slavery in ancient Egypt, was direct and brutal human compulsion. Human bodies were controlled, but the creative productivity of the human mind remained outside the reach of the whip and the brand and the shackles. Slaves remained woefully under productive, and required enormous resources to control.

PHASE TWO: Roman Slaves Are Free to Show A Modicum of Ingenuity

The second phase was the Roman model, wherein slaves were granted some capacity for freedom, ingenuity and creativity, which raised their productivity. This increased the wealth of Rome, and thus the tax income of the Roman government – and with this additional wealth, Rome became an empire, destroying the economic freedoms that fed its power, and collapsed.

I’m sure that this does not seem entirely unfamiliar.

PHASE THREE: Feudal Serfdom

After the collapse of Rome, the feudal serfdom model (and here, too) introduced the concept of livestock ownership and taxation. Instead of being directly owned, peasants and serfs farmed land that they could retain as long as they paid off the local warlords. This model broke down due to the continual subdivision of productive farm land, and was destroyed during the Enclosure movement, when land was consolidated and hundreds of thousands of serfs were kicked off their ancestral lands, because new farming techniques made larger farms more productive with fewer people.

The increased productivity of the late Middle Ages created the excess food required for the expansion of towns and cities, which in turn gave rise to the modern Democratic model of human ownership.

As displaced serfs and peasants flooded into the cities, a huge stock of cheap human capital became available to the rising industrialists – and the ruling class of human farmers quickly realized that they could make more money by letting their human livestock choose their own occupations.

PHASE FOUR: The Democratic Model

Under the Democratic model, direct slave ownership has been replaced by the Mafia model. The Mafia rarely owns businesses directly, but rather sends thugs around once a month to steal from the business “owners.”

You are now allowed to choose your own occupation, which raises your productivity – and thus the taxes you can pay to your masters.

Your few freedoms are preserved because they are profitable to your owners.

The great challenge of the Democratic model is that increases in wealth and freedom threaten the tax farmer. The ruling classes initially profit from a relatively free market in capital and labor, but as their human livestock become more used to their freedoms and growing wealth, they begin to question why they need rulers at all.

Ah well. Nobody ever said that human farming was easy.

HUMAN LIVESTOCK MANAGEMENT Keeping human livestock securely in the compounds of the ruling classes is a three phase process.

Phase One: Indoctrination The first phase is to indoctrinate the young through government “education.” As the wealth of democratic countries grew, government schools were universally inflicted in order to control the thoughts and souls of the livestock.

Phase Two: Division The second phase is to turn citizens against each other through the creation of dependent livestock. It is very difficult to rule human beings directly through force — and where it can be achieved, it remains cripplingly under productive, as can be seen in North Korea. Human beings do not breed well or produce efficiently in direct captivity. If human beings believe that they are free, then they will produce much more for their farmers.

The best way to maintain this illusion of freedom is to put some of the livestock on the payroll of the farmer.

Those cows that become dependent on the existing hierarchy will then attack any other cows who point out the violence, hypocrisy and immorality of human ownership. Freedom is slavery, and slavery is freedom. If you can get the cows to attack each other whenever anybody brings up the reality of their situation, then you don’t have to spend nearly as much controlling them directly. Those cows who become dependent upon the stolen largess of the farmer will violently oppose any questioning of the virtue of human ownership — and the intellectual and artistic classes, always and forever dependent upon the farmers — will say, to anyone who demands freedom from human ownership: “You will harm your fellow cows.”

HUMAN FARMThe human livestock are kept enclosed by shifting the moral responsibility for the destructiveness of a violent system of slavery to those who demand real freedom.

Phase Three: Fear The Third Phase is to invent continual external threats, so that the frightened human cattle cling to the “protection” of the human farmers.

This system of human farming is now nearing its end.

The terrible tragedy of the modern American system has occurred not in spite of, but because of past economic freedoms.

The massive increases in American wealth throughout the 19th century resulted from economic freedom — and it was this very increase in wealth that fed the size and power of the state.

Whenever the livestock become exponentially more productive, you get a corresponding increase in the number of farmers and their dependents.

The growth of the state is always proportional to the preceding economic freedoms.

Economic freedom creates wealth, and the wealth attracts more thieves and political parasites, whose greed then destroys the economic freedom.

In other words, freedom metastasizes the cancer of the state.

The government that starts off the smallest will always end up the largest.

This is why there can be no viable and sustainable alternative to a truly free and peaceful society.

A society without political rulers, without human ownership, without the violence of taxation and statism

To be truly free is both very easy, and very hard.

We avoid the horror of our enslavement because it is painful to see it directly.

We dance around the violence of our dying system because we fear the attacks of our fellow livestock.

But we can only be kept in the cages we refuse to see. Wake up…

To see the farm is to leave it.
