obama excuses 1

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

This commentary is not based on a breaking story, but it is based on a culmination of information that has bothered me for some time, and to the point I felt a serious need to dredge it up and splash it before the eyes of an all too forgiving or disconnected people … We The people! It has to do with the credibility of the (supposed) most powerful man on this planet and the fact that things just DON’T ADD UP !!!

So let me start this off with a question:

When is a Commander In Chief “NOT” a Commander In Chief?

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 and crisis.

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!

If you were to believe President Obama ISIS came out of nowhere and splashed on the global scene as one of the, if not the biggest terrorist threats in history. And he was not informed … FREAKING REALLY ???

isis-and-obama 3


isis-and-obama 4

57.9% to be exact is almost 3 out of every 5 vital briefings skipped … This is the man who dictates our military policy abroad, and as it relates to the protection of the homeland. In a time of chaos and crisis he has blown off a majority of his vital briefings … for what? Is this acceptable?

Lets put aside for this discussion (because this is an entire subject unto itself) the fact that most of the world is aware by now of the CIA and US Military ties directly to ISIS for training and funding, and concentrate on a president who cant even muster up a credible lie. Unless he is in fact the ultimate puppet with no task or responsibility that does not take place in front of a camera, because ONLY then would his lies actually be truth … there is no way in hell circumstances of such overwhelming significance where kept from the Commander in Chief … FACT!

Policy directly related to the rise and rampage of this organization across the middle east (including countries we are sill engaged in with a military presence of some significance … Iraq), would be the top priority in EVERY briefing, including supplementary briefings had he happened to miss the scheduled daily briefing (almost 60% of them).

Isn’t this the same man who also went to bed while our ambassador and several other brave Americans where being brutally killed in Libya, because he had a fundraiser to attend in the morning? Isn’t this the same guy who claims ignorance for the balance of this fiasco? Didn’t he also shift the blame to others such as Clinton, claiming he was unaware of much that transpired until after the fact.

How the hell can you be informed when you are in bed SLEEPING while high ranking American officials and military heroes are crying out and begging for help, being ignored, then being slaughtered,?  Are these the priorities of … once again … the Commander In Chief of the most powerful military force ever to exist on this planet?

left-to-die-benghazi 1

Why do we still, after well over a year of debating the issue, have masses of illegal aliens swarming across the southern boarder, allowing who knows what dangers access (terrorists, murderers, disease) to the soft underbelly of America? Why do we still for all intents and purposes have an almost wide open boarder? Why have the boarder patrol been made to stand down on a multitude of occasions, or had their presence intentionally weakened to a point of almost ineffectiveness?

Why is this president failing his constitutional duty to protect the American people by sealing the boarder, all the while passing the buck to an inept congress? Congress was never needed to seal the border. He as Commander In Chief could at any point in time send troops or national guard to the border to supplement the border patrol and stem the tide of criminals invading American soil. This is his most prominent mandate as our President, to “Protect American soil and sovereignty from foreign entities”! Sure to make immigration policy or law, yes congress is integral … BUT NOT to seal the border! So why hasn’t he? But again this is not his fault … it is the fault of congress. Again he passes the buck and America suffers for it.

illegal-immigrants 1

This all leads to several possibilities,

Either he truly believes Americans are so dumbed down, propagandized or buried in adoration for him as to have total faith in anything that comes out of his mouth …

Or his credibility has sunk to the ultimate low point where passing the buck for his ineptitude’s is now an acceptable function of the Commander In Chief of the most powerful military force ever to exist on this planet!

Yes it is said a picture is worth a thousand words and  the above images and amplifying information present a blatant look into the priorities of this individual. These are not the only cases of failure and pass the buck, only the most recent and blatant! It is obvious even to the most casual of observers … that the priorities that should, do not focus with any significance on you and me … or America … but portray more the character of a disenfranchised slacker or bit player in the grand scheme of things. But then most of us where already painfully aware of this, just not the true extent of it.

Which president has the most tee times, (well over 1,200 hours on the golf course and counting), or the most opulent ($$$) vacations (not the most vacation days), even though the world and this country are falling apart all around us at a quicker pace than any time in recent history. Are these valid questions? In light of the images and information presented above … I would have to connect the dots and say yes!


When Piers Morgan (of all bleeding heart Ultra 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!

Excerpt from :  Piers Morgan BLASTS Obama in Daily Mail Editorial

He first addresses Obama’s appearance on “60 Minutes” blaming the rise of the ISIS machine on lack of proper intelligence from the department he oversees.  What a gross embarrassment of the abilities of U.S. intelligence if Obama was being transparent.  However, we know that lawmakers were warned some time ago about the dangers of the growing militant faction; it’s just that our President avoided the memo.

Piers goes on to point out that he managed to attend only 42.1 percent of his daily intelligence briefings.  It seems unimaginable that Obama would have the gall to blame his intelligence agency for the failure to emphasize the threat of ISIS.

Piers goes on, “Far from making America stronger, Obama has made the world’s greatest military power look weak.”  And he’s right.  America fears terrorism, but terrorism doesn’t fear America.  They provoke us without regard to the political threats that will poke at them from the suits in Washington.  And the top suit is photographed goofing off on the golf course mere minutes after addressing the beheading of James Foley.

He finished his op-ed by comparing Obama to professional golfer, Rory McIlroy, in his enthusiasm for the sport.  It’s just that McIlroy does not have the security of the free world on his shoulders.  “It’s time he got off the damn golf course, got up to speed with his intelligence briefings and focused on wiping out ISIS.  Before they wipe out more of the people he serves.”

So is it time to fire the entire Intelligence mechanism of America for failing so miserably in their assigned tasks to keep their CIC informed of matters of regional, if not global significance? Failing to keep American dignitaries safe and alive? Or do we fire the border patrol for not doing their job? How many people must fall to protect and mask the obviously inept actions of a failing Commander In Chief? How many passes does this guy get?

I will close with this last inquiry of ultimate conspiracy … When the world keeps turning but nothing is ever his fault … If (as it surely appears) he, via ignorance, not being in the loop on so many occasions, or failing his constitutional responsibilities, is not the man in the drivers seat, the leader captaining this ship, protecting this nation as its elected Commander In Chief, just who the hell is? And that is the scariest question asked in this entire and very blatant commentary!




“Let people be, boss; don’t open their eyes. And supposing you did, what’d they see? Their misery! Leave their eyes closed, boss, and let them go on dreaming!” (1)

― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Contributed to TLB by: Paul Fassa

Zorba is the larger- than- life passionate, earthy and unpredictable protagonist of Nikos Kazantzakis’ 1946 novel: Zorba the Greek. The original Greek title was The Life and Times of Alexis Zorbas, but as the novel was widely translated and it became renowned internationally it was eventually and extemporaneously renamed Zorba the Greek.

Interestingly, the Alexis character was actually based on a real person named Yorgis Zorbas, who was a friend and mentor to Kazantzakis.

ZorbasbookAs legend goes, it was Zorbas who taught Kazantzakis the art of fully living in each moment without regret or fear and most importantly with a deep feeling of awe, gratitude and wonder for whatever life presents – be it pleasure or pain – the “full catastrophe.” Ultimately, Zorbas embodies a childlike willingness to surrender (allow) and trust whatever life manifests moment by precious moment – the good, the bad, or the ugly.

“Those who met him [Yorgis Zorbas] speak of a person free of social conventions, illiterate yet ingenious, and profoundly philosophical, which is why he touched Kazantzakis’ soul.” (2)

Some  believe the magic of  Zorba was his innate ability to see the same “old” things each day as if new and miraculous, like an artist. Others contend that Zorba was more than an iconic, fleeting and finite character. They posit that Zorba is a timeless, archetypical character spontaneously expressing the indestructible and essential life force that animates and manifests as individual life,  the invisible presence and  substance that temporarily becomes LIFE in all its myriad forms, yet exists eternally beyond name and form.

Zorba the Archetypal Fool

fool“To be a Fool means to risk. It means to take a chance. It means fearlessly walking into the unknown, blissfully ignorant of what is to come. To be the Fool, is to embrace innocence. It is to trust possibility, and allow experience to be our teacher.” (3)




“You think too much, that is your trouble. Clever people and grocers, they weigh everything.”
– Alexis Zorba (1)

The story of Zorba the Greek is simple, direct, and like the best poetry leaves a strong, vivid,  impression on the  soul. It acts like a classic Zen koan. It has the ability to cut through the delusions of the mind and cause a sudden awakening of the slumbering soul in a worthy student.

Basil (Alan Bates) is a 30ish half English half Greek writer born and raised in England. The story opens in Pireaus, the port city of Athens with Basil en route to the picturesque Greek island of Crete. He had recently inherited a small cottage and a long abandoned lignite mine there.

And frankly, Basil was more than grateful to have the opportunity to escape the hectic, cosmopolitan life of urban England in exchange for the solitude and ascetic tranquility the island of Crete seductively offered. You see, he had been suffering a long and troubling bout of writer’s block, so he reasoned that he  would finally be able to finish his book, a biography on Buddha, while basking in the sun drenched peace of the quaint Greek island. Little did Basil know that destiny had cleverly arranged for him to meet his very own Greek Buddha  in the form of Zorba.

In 1964, Zorba the Greek was released as a film. Here’s a synopsis for those unfamiliar with the movie.

The movie opens with Basil (Alan Bates) standing on a dock, umbrella in hand, admonishing workers to be careful with his trunks. He’s told the ship to Crete is delayed.  In response to the news,  Basil makes his way inside to the rustic comfort of the waiting area.

The intellectual Basil, clad in proper English attire, sat reading in the crowded transit room patiently anticipating his ship’s  arrive, when suddenly the rugged, charismatic, peasant Alexis Zorba (Anthony Quinn) enters the room. Like a magnet Zorba was attracted to Basil and quickly introduced himself.

He exuberantly announced that he too was headed for Create and spontaneously enumerated the litany of ways he would be useful to Basil including: his experience with lignite mines, his cooking ability and anything  related that spontaneously popped into his head. Thus begins one of the most memorable and philosophically profound relationships ever brought to the big screen. (4)


“As to the major philosophical questions that preoccupy the narrator, through plain thinking and the experience of a tumultuous life, Zorba shows him that the answers – if they do exist – are not to be found in books, but in life itself, as long as it is lived passionately, free of hopes and expectations…” (2)

The story exudes a raw spiritual power, a glimpse into the unfettered workings of the invisible life force operating without artificial restraint through the visible form of Zorba. The film has the remarkable ability to seduce one into wondering what life might be like if lived authentically from the infinite, unconditioned fullness of the center of ones being, as opposed to the cramped, finite periphery  between the conditioned mind and personality.

zorbathegreekTo the attentive, Zorba is not merely a quirky and entertaining imaginary character, but rather a real teacher who demonstrates how to live life fully in the NOW.  In Zorba’s version of life, happiness and joy are found in utter simplicity – immersed in this unique  moment, fully engaged in the mysterious dance called life, unfettered by crippling inhibitions.

As Zorba himself says of death: “Act as if death did not exist, and act with death in mind at every moment…” and “…I look on death every moment and I’m not afraid; yet I never say I like it. No, I don’t like it at all! Am I not free? I refuse to sign up!” (1)

5 Perennial Life Lessons Learned from  “Zorba The Greek”

1. Learn to grow through adversity

“Life is trouble. Only death is not. To be alive is to undo your belt and look for trouble.” – Zorba the Greek (1)

Lesson: Through adversity we discover our core strength. Life’s challenges temper the soul. Obstacles are equivalent to spiritual weight lifting. Stormy seas make skillful sailors.

2. Live in the now. Say YES to life!

“God changes his appearance every second. Blessed is the man who can recognize him in all his disguises.” (1)
― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Lesson: Life unfolds in the now. The present moment is where the eternal freshness and rejuvenating power of creation reside. Life is a kaleidoscope of constantly changing forms all essentially made from the same spiritual essence.

3. Simplicity

“I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else.”― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek (1)

Lesson: When you accumulate more than you need, you pay a much higher price beyond the obvious monetary cost. This excess baggage steals your attention, demands precious time, causes worry, frustration, and ultimately winds up depleting one’s life energy. The simple things are by far the most extraordinary; unfortunately very few recognize that truth.
“So few in reality are the true necessities of man”
― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek (1)

4. Deep Appreciation for the Mystery of Life

“The highest point a man can attain is not Knowledge, or Virtue, or Goodness, or Victory, but something even greater, more heroic and more despairing: Sacred Awe!”
― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek (1)

Lesson: Life stripped to its core is a divine dance of unfathomable love not a conceptual problem to be solved. Whenever the heart leads; the mysterious root behind all of life is revealed. The mind can be a skillful map and a good navigator, but it’s never the destination.
“What a miracle life is and how alike are all souls when they send their roots down deep and meet and are one!”
― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek (1)

5. Life is as you see it

“While experiencing happiness, we have difficulty in being conscious of it. Only when the happiness is past and we look back on it do we suddenly realize—sometimes with astonishment—how happy we had been.”
― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Lesson: Life is like our own personal storybook purposefully unfolding in a series of unique and exquisite moments strung together like lustrous pearls on a string of time. Although, one moment may appear to be better than another – in truth they are all equally valuable and perfect in their own way.

To avoid life for fear of making a mistake is ironically the biggest mistake of all. All dreams are impossible if one is afraid of failure. We are all dreamers who finally wake up in the dream called life.

“Every man has his folly, but the greatest folly of all, in my view, is not to have one.”
― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek (1)


Happiness doesn’t come from things. It comes from being in touch with the pure essence of who we really are. True happiness resides in the experiential moment by moment realization that you and the universe are essentially composed of same ineffable awareness.

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

In reality modern nations and free societies are but an illusion. There are those among us who consider themselves the Elite of humanity. These would be emperors feel it is their right and destiny to control and rule (not govern) this country and indeed the world. What you will read here is but an introduction for the uninitiated … This saga is centuries in the making, and only now approaches maturity.

There is no longer much doubt that this Oligarchical Elite literally owns our military, our leaders, our country, our money and their main instrument of modern propaganda, the mainstream media. A recent Princeton study clearly states America is no longer governed by Democracy but is ruled by an Oligarchy. The preoccupation, misdirection and constant propaganda provided by the MSM makes their actions and agenda almost impossible to ferret out … almost. This level of control is made possible by the divisiveness they instill in us through a constant barrage of fear, hatred and prejudice from birth.

This Elite controls the ebb and flow of capital across the globe and can control or strongly manipulate Nations through central banking and the International Monetary Fund. This control is almost absolute, especially since they are willing to do whatever it takes (via a total lack of conscience) to maintain that extremely valuable (in terms of power and money) control. Bribery, Extortion, Murder and Perpetual Warfare are their tools and mechanisms of manipulation. We Are not talking about your local bank here, we are talking about the banking powers that tell them when where and how high to jump … and when they can come down, and that they better not dare repeat what really goes on behind the veil of public perception.

Humanity is in imminent danger and our programmed failure to recognize this and push back against it only emboldens their actions! Genocide or the culling of the herd is much easier today with tools like GMOs, vaccinations, engineered disease, chemtrails, pesticides, fluoridated water, global warfare and many other mechanisms at their disposal, and under their complete control.

Indeed this control works so well that via the manipulation of governments, they not only have the power to control humanity but in many cases force us through unjust laws and taxation, to fund the very mechanisms of population control or culling they deem necessary to maintain this power they possess.

Sponsors of our own demise

Almost every war in the last few centuries has been fought for the profit and strategic goals of this caste. Untold millions have died or suffered extreme poverty to satisfy their lust for profit, control and power. But if we are only seen as cattle to be manipulated for their goals … Do we have any attack of conscience when slaughtering cattle?

When you try to picture this Elite, the Ruling Oligarchy or those who consider themselves to occupy a caste so far above the rest of humanity, that they would refer to the rest of us as cattle, to be thought of and treated as such, there is one family, the true Oligarchy of all tyrants, that stands above all on the list, being responsible for the rise and fall of kings, queens, emperors and nations.

Lets introduce one of the grandest of the Elites … Nathan Rothschild …


In 1791 the Rothschild dynasty also gets control of this nation’s money, through Alexander Hamilton (their agent in George Washington’s cabinet) when they set up the first central bank in the USA called the First Bank of the United States. This is established with a 20 year charter. Although not a permanent entity, it facilitates the infestation of the US government from that point on.

With the Rothschild family net worth estimated far in excess of $100 TRILLION (about twice the total world debt), and controlling interest (Via the intermingled and interbred eight families) in just about every major financial institution on this planet. This cabal is estimated to have a cumulative net worth far exceeding $300 TRILLION, their influence and power go far beyond what most can ever imagine. Nations, presidents, emperors, monarchs and even despots bend before their collective will … or suffer the catastrophic consequences!

What you will find below is an outstanding explanation of this dynasty, its global tyranny, mechanisms of control and its ultimate goals. TLB highly recommends you visit its website of origin for more pertinent information.

When Rothschild Dials 911

By: Dean Henderson

Since America’s inception there has been a lingering notion that European Illuminati bankers seek to bring America to its knees and return it to the fold of the Crown of England, which centuries ago became the key political vassal for the Eight Families who own majority stock in every private central bank in the world- Rothschild, Rockefeller, Kuhn Loeb, Lehman, Goldman Sachs, Warburg, Lazard and Israel Moses Seif .

Many US Presidents warned of the intrigues of the cabal, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Quincy Adams; and later Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. The latter two were assassinated for trying to nationalize the Federal Reserve via the issuance of Treasury Department-backed (publicly-issued) currency. The Eight Families own 52% of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, far and away the most powerful Fed Bank. Their ownership is disguised under names like JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.

Do I exaggerate when I claim that there are Eight Families? Well, yes, actually these oligarchs have interbred to the point that they are now, for all practical purposes, one big family, with the Rothschilds being the most powerful. Their net worth alone is estimated at well over $100 trillion.

These people, whose latest justification for lording over us is that they are descended from Jesus Christ himself, are, for obvious reasons, counter-revolutionary. In their collective if obtuse minds, there are no good revolutions. Democracy is antithema. Government is something that only gets in the way. It must be discredited and bought. The American Revolution really pissed these inbreds off. In Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the Crown of England still holds sway via the Governor General. Most European countries retained their monarchies. In America, we had a revolution, democracy and government.

A medieval rollback of the American Revolution begins with the concept that “government is the root of all evil”. This strain of thinking is promoted by the Saudi/Israeli-owned Fox News. These nations are not “Islamic” and “Jewish”. They are fronts for the Crown of England and the Rothschilds. The well-paid corporate lackey leadership of the Republican Party pushes this anti-government agenda, while the idiocracy misnomer known as the Tea Party takes this monarchist argument to its fascist extreme.

Key to this revolutionary rollback is that seminal event- 911- which was used by Windsor family country cousin George Bush Jr. to dismantle our Bill of Rights, bankrupt our nation and destroy our image throughout the world via two oil-grab, narco-stimulant, contractor-friendly wars. In the weeks before 911 the financial weekly Barons reported that Deutsche Bank had purchased huge put options (betting that a stock will go down in price) on American & United Airlines, and WTC reinsurance giants Munich RE, Swiss RE & Axa.

Deutsche Bank, historically owned by the Nazi-funding Warburg family, bought Bankers Trust in 1999 to become the world’s largest bank with $882 billion in assets. Bankers Trust, as its name indicates, had been the Eight Families’ US wealth repository and is the largest shareholder of the Four Horsemen- Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco and Royal Dutch/Shell- who later reaped the Iraq/Afghanistan oil bonanza.

In 2001 Sen. Carl Levin’s (D-MI) Banking Committee fingered Banker’s Trust as a major player in drug money laundering. On August 28th, just two weeks before 911, Deutsche Bank executive Kevin Ingram pled guilty to laundering heroin proceeds and arranging US weapons sales to parties in Pakistan and Afghanistan. A June 15, 2001 New York Post article said Osama bin Laden was the likely buyer. Kevin Ingram is a close friend of Clinton Treasury Secretary and Goldman Sachs insider Robert Rubin, now a board member at Citigroup. Ingram had worked at both Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers.

Banker’s Trust purchased the fast-growing Alex Brown investment bank in 1997 before the two merged into Deutsche Bank. Alex Brown took its name from founder A. B. “Buzzy” Krongard who served as chairman until the 1997 Bankers Trust buyout. Krongard is now the #3 man at CIA. On September 15th, four days after 911, the New York Times reported that Deutsche Bank Global Private Banking Chairman Mayo Shattuck III had suddenly resigned.

Mohammed Atta and two of other alleged hijackers had accounts at the Deutsche Bank Hamburg headquarters. There were reports that bin Laden’s family had taken a large stake in Deutsche Bank with help from Carlyle Group financial advisor George Bush Sr. The bin Laden’s had $2 million invested in Carlyle Group. They held big stakes in Microsoft and Boeing, and had extensive business dealings with Citigroup, GE, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and Fremont Group (recently spun-off by Bechtel). Within twenty days of 911, Deutsche Bank had hired away (effectively silencing) SEC lead investigator Richard Walker, whose main task would have been to delve into the mysterious shorting of airline and insurance stocks prior to 911.

The final phase of counter-revolution can be accomplished through the withdrawal of Eight Families’ funding of America’s $11 trillion debt, which has mostly accrued due to the US military’s role as mercenary praetorian guard of the Illuminati global empire, coupled with a devastating US military defeat in Afghanistan.

On August 15, 1871 Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry General Albert Pike, who later founded the Ku Klux Klan and prosecuted the Indian Wars, wrote a letter to Italian P-1 33rd Degree Grand Commander and Mafia founder Guiseppe Mazzini. In the letter Pike talked of a Brotherhood plan for three World Wars. The first, he said, would destroy czarist Russia and create a Communist “bogeyman” which the bankers could employ to justify their foreign interventions around the world. The second, Pike said, would be used to create Israel, which would become a mercenary force for the international bankers, protecting Middle Eastern oil interests for Rothschild and Rockefeller combines.

The Third World War, stated Pike’s letter, would pit Arabs against Zionists, and would culminate in a New World Order completely controlled by the international bankers and their secret societies. Pike described the events that would unfold as pretext for WWIII, “We’ll provoke a social cataclysm which in all its horror… everywhere the citizens obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries…will receive the true light through the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out into public view.”

In June 2001, a female Russian doctor stated in a Pravda column that the US would be subject to a massive terrorist attack in late August 2001. She was then asked what she believed was coming next. She suggested selling dollars and buying Russian rubles, saying that the secret group behind 911 was the most powerful force in the world, worth over $300 trillion. She said this group would soon “strike America in the back” while it was down and that the next shoe to drop would be the decimation of the US economy. This “secret group” could only be the Illuminati Rothschild-led Eight Families.

Cecil Rhodes, the Rothschild protégé who founded the Business Roundtable in the early 20th century wrote his last will and testament in 1877. Rhodes’ vision was implemented through the establishment of the Royal Institute for International Affairs in London. Rhodes founded the Standard Chartered Bank, whose UAE Dubai branch supplied the 911 hijackers with the funds needed to carry out the attack.

Rhodes last will and testament said he hoped, “to establish a trust, to and for the establishment and promotion and development of a secret society, the true aim and object whereof shall be the extension of British rule throughout the world…and the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire.”

Compromise 1

“If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.” – Mark 3:25

“Politics at its purest is philosophy in action” – Margaret Thatcher

By TLB Contributor: Robin Koerner

Whereas to many outside the liberty movement, including the mainstream media, politicians like Rand Paul seem quite libertarian, many Americans who actually call themselves “libertarians” seem to despise Rand Paul for not being libertarian enough in various areas, and so they call him a “neo-con” or a “shill” or similar.

To other libertarians, Rand Paul is exciting not only because he’s standing up for important pro-liberty and pro-Constitutional positions but also because he’s getting significant parts of the libertarian message into the mainstream, and doing it in a way that isn’t making everyone roll their eyes and marginalize him as some kind of a kook. The latter may be his most important work because culture drives politics, and cultural change is what makes political change stick.

Among the latter subset of liberty-lovers, there is some frustration in the perception that as a movement, we actively refuse to make the best of every opportunity (and goodness knows we have so few of them) to move the dials of the cultural and political mainstream toward liberty.

Like it or not, it is almost impossible to discuss political effectiveness without an understanding of the nature of compromise. Speaking as an insider of the liberty movement, I believe we have a particularly uncomfortable relationship with it, which we must examine if we are going to cease to be political outsiders.

A good way in to the topic is to consider the sentiment, felt by so many of us who realize that both sides of the political duopoly (or monopoly disguised as a duopoly) are responsible for the destruction of our liberty: “I’m sick of supporting the lesser of two evils.”

What does that really mean? For a libertarian, liberty is the direction of the Good, and tyranny is the direction of evil. In a complex society of competing interests, and especially in politics, you almost never get to move directly toward where you want to go (your version of the Good). Imagine it on a diagram. Draw a line from where we are to where we want to be: we are moving in the right direction when we move not more than 90 degrees from the direction of that line.

On our political spectrum of evil (tyranny) to good (liberty) stand those who would actually make things worse than they now are. They want more Patriot Act, more state killing without due process, more NDAA, more curtailments of speech, more invasions of privacy, more welfarism – especially corporate , and more militarism. In 2012, Romney and Obama both fitted that description. In other words, they stood between where we are and the “evil” end of our spectrum. To support either was to move more than 90 degrees away from the line to the good that we are seeking to follow.

And indeed, if you thought one was less bad than the other, then you could accurately call him the “lesser of two evils”.

I wonder if, though, in its passion, the liberty movement sometimes mistakes the lesser of two goods for an evil? For consider another situation. Consider two imperfect candidates (the word “imperfect” is redundant, of course: people are not perfect). One that stands between where we are as a nation and the Good (liberty) cannot be said to be “the lesser of two evils”. At worst, he is the “lesser of two Goods” – since should he take office, we’d have moved in the direction we are seeking to go, even if not as far as we would wish, and even if not along that direct line to the Good.

Let’s say you like the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson on nearly everything; you like the Libertarian Party because it’s unapologetically libertarian. And let’s say you like Rand on civil rights and due process, but think he’s as bad as Obama on everything else. (I don’t think this is reasonable, but there are plenty of Libertarians who say this, so let’s go with it for the sake of argument.)

If that’s what you think, then don’t call Rand the lesser of two evils. Call him the lesser of two Goods. If you don’t actively support Rand because you have a more libertarian alternative, that is great, but take great care before standing against those who support him – for one simple reason. If he were running the country, in important respects, we’d have shifted closer to your ultimate destination … not just politically, but, more importantly, because one of the greatest media platforms in the land would be in the control of someone who promotes – and normalizes – many libertarian ideas, rather than in the hands of someone who does promotes –and normalizes – statist ones.

“That’s all very well”, say some libertarians, “but even if I like him on some issues, look at how he’s sold out on others, and on his endorsements”. This is worth considering because someone’s consistency speaks to their integrity and you can only really tell the value of someone’s principles when you see the price he’s prepared to pay to defend them.

To stick with Rand Paul as an example, when he endorsed Romney in 2012, I felt physically sick for most of the day. I campaigned against Romney fervently – as fervently as I campaigned against Obama, and as fervently as I had campaigned for Ron Paul. I did so out of principle. Which begs the question, does that mean that Rand’s endorsement of Romney necessarily violated the principles on which my campaigning against Romney was based – or worse, was an act of selling out? Put simply, how could a person who campaigned against Romney on principle support a man on the same principle, who campaigned for him Romney?

When Rand ran for Senate in Kentucky, he made a deal to gain the support of the Republican party, which he calculated he needed to be able to win the Senate seat, if and only if he supported the eventual presidential nominee of the party in 2012. So in 2012, Rand kept his word. What did he get for keeping his word and doing that (literally) nauseating thing of endorsing Romney? Simply, he got the platform that has enabled everything he has done since. Now we might say, “but he didn’t have to: he could have won in KY without selling out”. Perhaps. But that is a hypothetical and necessarily uncertain. Rand had to make an actual decision to maximize his capacity to achieve a specific purpose. What we know is that he made that decision for a reason and he got the result he played for.

So that endorsement, when seen in its full context, has moved the dial toward liberty inasmuch as Rand has, since making it, stood against the NSA, against drone killing of Americans without trial, against militarization of the police, against unconstitutional declaration of war, and all the other things Rand and his staff have stood for since he’s been in the US Senate. Did the endorsement make me sick? Absolutely. Does that mean I stand in judgment against of it from a libertarian position? Based on the analysis above, of whether the net effect of his actions was to nudge the culture toward liberty or away from it, I cannot – because principles are made valuable when they are acted upon.

As the liberty movement comes of age, it will have to understand that, whereas some endorsements and other political moves are made purely out of principle, some are made – and must be made – strategically to better place a principled politician to act on his principles. Usually, those of us on the outside of the game cannot see, or even guess, the factors that a politician must consider in the strategic calculation at the time he must make it – and we cannot see the outcome until much later.

When Rand endorsed McConnell a few months ago, what was the calculation then? More libertarians were sickened. McConnell is a partisan, after all – and a partisan man of a party that has undoubtedly promulgated anti-libertarian after anti-libertarian policy. Was Rand’s endorsement of him a compromise of principle or a means to gain something that will enable him to get support for a practical change in the direction of some principle in the future?

A fair answer must consider this: is it better to make an unprincipled declaration to be able to make positive principled change – or better to make only principled declarations and thereby be excluded from being able to do make that principled change?

Even more important is this question: is it better to go along with a bad state of affairs when you believe that your overt support cannot make it worse if it enables you subsequently to do good – or is it better to state one’s opposition to that current state of affairs the get-go but in so doing reduce your chance of being able to put your principles into practice and change it with great effect later?

Clearly, good and principled people can and do answer both of those questions differently. But the differences in answers are not necessarily themselves differences of principle: they are just as likely to follow from differences of beliefs about method or strategy.

All this means that a political act cannot be judged in isolation from the context in which it is made – both situational, and personal. When it comes to the horse-trading of politics, we, the public, are very far removed from the game. We have no idea, say, of what was given or taken for that endorsement of McConnell. Does the fact that McConnell’s victory speech stakes out for the first time ever …

a non-interventionist foreign policy indicate that Rand’s strategic concessions are bringing concessions from the Republican party on philosophy? I don’t know, but if so, great – because that’s exactly how you want to make those trades: make concessions that make nothing worse, to win concessions on that actually make things better. (Consider the political equivalent of exchanging Federal Reserve Notes for gold.)

But we still haven’t gotten to the most radical challenge of political compromise for principled citizens: we are often too quick to label as “compromises of principle” decisions that not only aren’t compromises of principle at all, but are their very opposite – principled compromises. For example, if a statement or endorsement is not going to actually make a practical difference to anyone’s liberty in the short-run, but has a significant chance of enabling the person who makes it make a material difference to our liberty in the long-run, then at the level of principle, the statement or endorsement is not a compromise at all: it is actually principled act inasmuch as it is a step toward the practical manifestation of principle.

While the unapologetic statement of principles is a critical component of cultural and political change, principles that never become more than statements are worthless. Libertarians have been purely stating their principles for a long time – and look at where we are. Let’s at least allow that playing to win is a reasonable approach for a libertarian and/or Constitutionalist politician who wants to be in a position where his principles can have a practical and long-lasting impact.

Winning means being in the game. It also means collecting enough good cards throughout the game to be able to play a strong hand for liberty when the opportunity to make actual change arises.

If you can’t stomach that game, then don’t play it. But if you are of the “no good can come of politics” mindset, please be careful of taking a position whose logical consequence is that all who fight for liberty within the political process are irredeemably compromised – for that position is denied by history time and time again. Throughout a thousand years of Anglo history, the established political process, with all its flaws, has been the arena in which the hard-fought improvements in liberty, won by the People, moved first in the culture, have been secured for future generations. In times and places where it hasn’t been, change has typically been violent (think of the Russian revolution, or the French revolution), and less successful in securing liberty at all.

Indeed, fighting for liberty “in the system” vs. “outside the system” is an entirely false dichotomy: history and common sense both say that when real society-wide change happens, it reflects attitudinal changes outside of politics that are eventually realized in the political establishment.

One of my favorite examples is that of Thomas Clarkson, a student of my alma mater, who in 1786 wrote a thesis on the “slavery and commerce of the human species”. He spent two years travelling on a horse around England, interviewing people, collecting information, sharing information, talking about the issue of slavery, publishing engravings of instruments used on slave ships etc. He wrote another tract in 1788, “Essay on the Impolicy of the African Slave Trade”. There were myriad currents and reasons that explain the shift in Britain against slavery, some to do with the economics of empire, others to do with the loss of the American colonies. But none of that marked the actual beginning of the end of the slave trade: that came because of a principled politician, but a politician nonetheless, called William Wilberforce, who directly incorporated Clarkson’s work in a speech in Parliament in 1789 that resulted in the vote to end slavery. It may not have been able to have been done without Clarkson. But it certainly could not have been done without Wilberforce – or someone else playing the game of politics, as committed as he was to advance the one libertarian issue the country was ready for, compromising as necessary as he, and his supporters, went.

I campaigned against Romney for president, on principle. The organization with which I am associated campaigned against him fervently, supporting Gary Johnson, also on principle. But I don’t get to sit in judgment of Rand on principle – because my context was not, and is not, his. Rand was operating in a world where such a compromise may enable him to do more for liberty than I can do. In other words, a compromise that for me would definitely have been one of principle, for him may, have been just methodological.

That the same principle can result in different decisions in different contexts has profound implications for political strategy. Once we admit that we never can fully know the context in which others operate in, the humility gained should help us not divide our small libertarian house against itself.

I wonder if there are a few Libertarian Party supporters, or Independents, who are reading this, and caring about liberty as I do, can’t imagine voting for Rand for president if Gary Johnson was also running. Just as I endorsed Johnson in 2012, I’d be delighted to see him run again in 2016. But remember this. If Johnson becomes the Libertarian nominee for president in 2016, and there is every sign that he shall, it will be because of the compromise he made to run and win as a Republican for Governor of New Mexico, in which capacity he did more for liberty – and especially economic liberty – in his state than any Libertarian or unaffiliated governor has ever done.

That’s unfair because there hasn’t been a Libertarian or unaffiliated Governor? Well, exactly.

It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that soon, libertarians and Constitutionalists may have the opportunity in a Presidential election to choose between a very small chance of moving the country a long way toward liberty (say by a vote for a Libertarian Johnson for President) or a much larger chance of moving it toward liberty but less far (say by a vote for a Republican Rand for President). Good libertarians can make that call differently, but none can claim without arrogance that those who decide differently are choosing the lesser of two evils: in this case, they’ll be deciding between two goods. That is a fundamentally different thing, especially when you consider that even the lesser of two goods on paper might become the greater of the two if it is better placed to do the Good it wants to do.

This is emphatically not an article written to endorse Rand Paul or Johnson or any other politician. Rather, it is a plea for libertarians who put more weight on moving the dial toward liberty at all and libertarians who put more weight on the need to turn the dial a long way, to recognize that we are not opponents. It’s the very fact that each of us is using liberty as the primary metric for choosing whom to support – that, in other words, we are all seeking to move to the Good – that puts us on the same side.

Of course, there are those who just hate all parties and the electoral process, on principle. And that is a perfectly defensible position too. But the problem is the same, because the measure of Good is not just what you stand for; it’s what you deliver. (That is a truth that all libertarians see clearly when it comes to Republicans who talk about small government and individual rights and deliver none of it, or even its opposite. Consistency demands we apply it to ourselves.)

I, too, am a purist by instinct. At Thomas Clarkson’s university, I studied physics and the philosophy of science. For purists, I recommend these subjects heartily.

But now I’m doing politics – and political purism, alas, is a contradiction in terms.

By: TLB Contributor: Ken LaRive

I’ve been sick two weeks with a cold, and finally went to the doctor. He gave a cortisone shot, antibodies, a decongestant. With the holidays upon us I was going to write about the Christmas spirit, but with a cortisone shot I’ve decided to write about police brutality, from my perspective, of course.I remember my first experience with it. I was about 17. My ride was a 289, 66 mustang. My father supplemented the payments on that car, insurance and all, but most of that was supplied by me. Thursday to Saturday I worked a Bali’ Hi, at Pontchartrain beach, as a waiter. On Friday night at about one o’clock in the morning I was hungry and wanted a beer. Yes, I also had just started smoking too. My virgin body rejected both alcohol and smoking, and I was constantly getting sick. But I pushed through this ‘caus I wanted to be a man. A Marlborough man, I suppose. (I had not yet found Maddy). I went to a local bar and met up with a friend, and toasted two drafts. At 130 pounds I was indeed legally drunk, and previous experiences indicated to me that a third beer would have incapacitate me, loosing even the ability to articulate my words, and unless I got something to eat, would have had a horrendous hangover.We drove our individual cars, a Volkswagen beetle and a mustang, to an all-night diner, and ordered fried chicken. Those were the good old days when I could eat fried foods, and we could drink under age. We laughed and had a good time, and at about 2-thirty split company, and as I watched him drive off, only having to go two blocks to get home, I got into my car. It was a foggy morning and all of my windows were frosted. I started to back up and hit a car. I got out and guess what, it was a police cruiser.

I won’t repeat what the two officers told me here, and one twisted my arm and slammed me over the hood of my car. Can’t say that it hurt, I just remember his ability to “man-handle me.” I thought of myself as a “hood” from the inner city, and capable, but I was just a pimply faced punk to him, and yes, I was. I said something like, “I didn’t see you sir! I’m sorry I hit your car. Yes sir, Yes sir!” And he let me up. “To much paper work.” he said, and he looked in my eyes with his flashlight, temporally blinding me. “Be on you way son, and be careful.” I was dazed, and overwhelmingly grateful.

The next encounter of substance, though there was a lot more between that… a lot I inadvertently saw that did not directly impact me specifically, was in San Diego… I was waiting for two weeks to be assigned to my new ship, the USS Kitty Hawk. I was dressed in my dress whites, on the beach, with my sister who had flown in to see me off. I was sitting there, like Steve McQueen, with my hat tilted back, kinda like the movie the Sand Pebble. I was 19, and my hero was Steve McQueen.

A little kid came up to me and said that those two men over there, and he pointed, want to talk with you. I looked and it was two MP’s. I jumped up and walked over there with a smile on my face, “Yes sir!” I said, “What can I do for you?” They didn’t reply. “Write him up. Needs a haircut, a shave, and out of uniform. You have two hours to report to your duty station.” I was such a little kid, I asked “Are you taking away my leave?” Now, if I would have complied, it would only have been a few hours delay, as I think back, but my sister came up and when she found out my leave was canceled, she got between us and demanded that he let me go. “Do not get in the middle of this young lady, step back or you will be arrested for obstruction,” and she did step back, and with a livid red face said the wrong thing… “You Pig!” she yelled out! Well, it all happened very fast. I was picked up like a sack of potatoes by the nape of my neck and my webbed belt, and thrown into the paddy-wagon without ceremony. And I looked at my sister as we drove off crying on the beach…

Something welled up in me… and I said to the officers. “I though you guys were on my side! What the hell are you doing here?” One of them looked at me through the little window that separated us and said, “You little bastard. If you say one more word we are going to go back there and beat the living s*it out of you. Got that!” I sat back there fuming, and then it happened, I threw up. “What! You been drinking! You stink up our ride!” He said with a loud and threatening tone…

“No,” I said. “I always throw up before a fight.” And his face got really red, and so did his partner, and they both bust out laughing. (I was in shock). Because they were not just laughing, but rolling in their seats. “You are going to clean every bit of that slime, and disinfect it too! …you little bastard!” And I did. And I realized too, that there was a lot more to these men then I could comprehend…

I was out in eight hours, thanks to a third cousin who contacted my CO and told him I was a good man, and that he would take personal responsibility for me over the week end. I got my last two days leave, unimpeded, and the riot act explained to me by my lifer cousin, and then a face to face with my temp CO. In essence both told me that I now belonged to the US Government, and to remember that if I didn’t want to spend more time in the brig. I was the lowest man on the totem poll, an SN (seaman) an E-3, but that those men had the ability to arrest an officer too, for the exact same thing. Somehow I doubted that, but it was, in retrospect, a good experience… though the ego in me was bused.

When I got aboard we reported to the Personnel office, all of us seven from Louisiana. One lone seaman looked at my record, glanced at it and me, and asked to see my hands. “I see you have never done a days manual labor in your life.” he said with a smile, “Can you type?”

” Yes sir! 70 words a minute, and no errors.” I could do about twenty, with three. “I see you came from submarines, non-volved did ya. And,” he said with a glance around the room, “Out of uniform on the beach. Well, good for you, and no need to call me sir.” I looked around the room and everyone was smiling. This was X-division, and these men would all, to the last, as the weeks turned to years, be my friends. And even to this day get choked up about it.

“Thanks.” I said. And I was then a part of X-division. And a very lucky man.

I was sent to the Captain’s office as one of his five yeoman. And with time they liked me, and gave me the opportunity to practice my typing, though I never did get to that 70 wpm.



Now, looking at these two examples, and seeing now the overwhelming negativity for the police today, lets try to dissect this in a rational way.

I saw a viral YouTube video a few weeks back of a woman charged with drunk driving who was pushed by an officer so hard she fell forward and hit her face on the bunk. She had to have reconstructive surgery, so it stated… she was charged with a DUI, and I don’t remember what happened to the officer. And since it seems the officer lost his temper, I’d like to question why?

First off, an officer has taken an oath not only to protect and to serve, but to defend the Constitution of the United States of America form all enemies both domestic and foreign. Of the fifteen or so officers in my community who I have spoken to about this oath, usually while we are waiting to get our car washed, only two did not understand that concept. Yes, two is a high number in that ratio. And those who actually understood my question associated it with gun control. In essence, most of them immediately said “No way would I ever allow my guns to be taken.” Only a few, about three, said, “and I will not allow them to take your guns, and would not obey any order to confiscate mine.” Now that a problem? …and I gave them all my Examiner card and told them all about the Oath Keepers. Only one knew of them… only one, and I think, in a crisis, that would be enough, and here is why. All of them now do… they do because I told them about it. It made a difference. Your will to change has worth!

Police motivation

I must admit, though I can not prove this, but I speculate that many police officers are motivated to the force because they want to have power, with a force for good secondary. I think this changes rapidly when they realize that they are responsible and accountable for upholding a rule of law. They also realize quickly and simultaneously, that rule of law is nebulous, broken, and as they arrest a person on the street, they are let out to do the very same thing the next day. This is very frustrating to them, but it is far more than that…. Those with money too, can afford good counsel… It is also a very dangerous job, and they do take their lives in their hands every day they put on that uniform. And though, of course, there is also that very human trait called ego, that we all have, and both sides want respect. Both sides, even if one side is in the wrong…

So wait a minute! Let me tell you another little story… When I was a young boy, my father brought us to visit his friend, Mr. Wade, who was a sheriff in a place called Waveland, MS. He was with my Father in both WW2 and Korea, he as a mechanic and MP, and my father as the ship’s nurse. From that experience he became a police officer, and my father a Barber. He lived in a rural area, and owned a large tract of land. He was a hunter, with several amazing white-tail trophies on his wall. There was another thing there too, and I asked him about it. It was his shield, framed, with a date under it.

“Yes,” he said. “That’s my shield. I pulled a drunk man over…, very routine I thought, and he shot me when I approached his window. Knocked me off my feet, and he got away. The bullet hit my shield, and whats the chance of that?” He laughed. ” He is still in prison for attempted murder of a police officer.” I remember my dad telling me years later he had become Chef, and a little later that he had died of lung cancer.

Okay, so lets for a moment look at the officer who shoved that drunk woman. I’m sure he pushed her too hard, and didn’t gauge her size or her amount of inebriation to catch herself. What was going on in his mind? Perhaps it was a wreck he was remembering, children dead, perhaps, and all by a drunk driver. Perhaps, just like those two gigantic MP’s who had seen a lot, even in war, as they were indeed lifers.

I ask you…What if something simple can center them, like courtesy, or heaven forbid, respect, and they can again focus on the reality of the situation. What if all you have to do is comply? And even if you are being wronged? On the street is no place to argue. There are too many complications on-site for an officer to accurately ascertain. When he says put your hands up, do so immediately. When he says to put your hands behind your back, say yes sir, while you comply, and turn so he can cuff you. If you do not comply, he will be forced to make you, and the more you squirm the more you resist arrest, and the more forcefully he will become. You will not win. What are you expecting, that you will be too much for him to handle? Is that the type of officer you want protecting you?

Go to the station, and in a short time you will be released. That is the place to sort this out, and sometimes with a lawyer…Swallow your ego, and look at the broader picture. And oh, we are now talking about the militarization of the military? Like that is a bad thing? How many officer’s lives would have been saved if they would have had a vest on? My dad’s friend only had a tin shield to protect him, and a bit of divine intervention perhaps. Ask yourself, if you saw wrecks, drunk drivers, countless laws broken, and violence every day… If you saw it on the line, put the white cloth over kids that looked identical to your own, just what would that do to you? It is called Post Traumatic Syndrome, (PTS), and that is just as viable as a person with an M-16 shooting an enemy in war. An enemy he knows is fighting for his own cause, with children and a family all his own… and as you pull that trigger, that trigger pulls you. That is a big problem for our military, because many of the men, once they get dispatched into the theater of war, question why? Seems to me they would have asked that question first, but that is the trust of boys at 19, and I know that all too well. Fortunately, as I was drafted, I had the foresight to enlist. But basically, at that age, what I really wanted was to be a man, and that is really what war requires. To do what you are told with out question.

Though I never pulled a trigger, indeed I was there, with twenty four-seven flight ops. All I saw was the flashes on the horizon, and it did something to me even so, just as the jetted JP-5 jet fuel we dumped on a crystal clear ocean, and the unused/unexploded ordinances that we dispersed into the Tonken Gulf. The five crash landings, the two men in Hong Kong who died of a drug overdose, the man who commuted suicide, the officer hit with a grappling hook, the 600 men who got VD in the Philippines, the great white owl three days out from Hawaii I tried to capture… who flew out to sea… and so much more… yes, all of it still lingers… and in none of it did I see one drop of blood… actually, the only blood I saw was my own, as I got pounded in the ring trying to be a boxer.

I have the greatest respect for our police. I would die trying to save one, without a doubt, and I know they would do the same for me, almost to the last man. God bless them! They should be able to possess at least an equal amount of fire power in this crazy world, and I know, without a doubt that if the chips were down, they would be the only one who would come to my aid. When we dial 9-11 they don’t contact anyone but them, and an ambulance, and a fireman too, all of which have seen a lot. Think about that when you judge all for the failure of a few, from your computer screens.

My home town is New Orleans. Last weekend six men died there, and all of it black on black, and all of it about turf, all of it about drugs. I am opposed to this drug war on may counts, and I wonder at the many men in prison for non-violent possession of illegal substances with the intent to distribute. Fortunes can be made, and they lost both freedom, and many years of their lives, and yet today many states have made that legal. How do you think that makes both sides feel? The officers who risked their lives to uphold the law, and those who risk their lives to make an unimaginable amount of money breaking it?

I sir, am a Libertarian. I didn’t get that way just by my experiences, but by studying the greatest and most powerful force, the very backbone of our country, our Bill of Rights and Constitution. And these concepts are only as viable as the people, like you and me, who, by our knowledge of them, demand that the laws we have adhere to those basic premises, and we should accept nothing less. Read your Constitution, and know your civil rights, and demand that the force of law stands for that, might for right. And if you do not have the fortitude to do that, don’t cry if they are taken from you. Liberty is not free, and each and every generation must win that gift again. Our Constitution is destroyed because we don’t have enough people to stand up against tyranny. It is that simple. That is the duty of the American Citizen, not crying.

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage’s whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men. -Ayn Rand

I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country. -Thomas Jefferson

The more laws, the less justice. -Marcus Tullius Cicero

Nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. -Albert Einstein


Authors note:

And then perhaps, if we had laws based on the Constitution and Bill of rights… deadly force, and the instruments to enforce them, would not be necessary… in most cases. And that is the rub isn’t it? There are bad men in this world, and what separates them from us, is the police…

Imperialism 5

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

This article represents the beginning of the end of the United States. Many who will read this article will find themselves in agreement, at least initially, because the developments which serve to threaten the future existence of the United States because the events are well-documented. However, many will reach a saturation point and will close their computer screen and write an angry response and accuse the author of “fearmongering”.  I would rather be labeled a fearmonger than be correct about the developments contained in this article. Americans need to deal realistically with the real reasons why America is about to be run over, both economically and militarily by Putin and his new found friends across the globe. I cannot shake the feeling that this is America’s epitaph and no amount of my own personal cognitive dissonance will convince me otherwise.

The Russo-Chinese Energy Deals

The haughtiness of the West as they impose sanctions on Russia over Ukraine is almost laughable. The sanctions are a boomerang in disguise and will come back at us to destroy the American economy which will lead to World War III.

Russia and China cement the biggest international energy deal in history.

At the heart of the American economy and the Petrodollar is energy and Russia and China just cemented an agreement where they do not need the dollar. The Russia –China  $400 billion energy deal, signed in May this year will by 2018 have some 38 billion cubic meters of gas flow through the so-called ‘Holy Grail’ pipeline from the largest gas producer, Russia, to the largest energy user, China. This deal  is many things at once: It is, of course a symbolic step in the process of decoupling hydrocarbon trading from the dollar, as it foresees payments in local currencies, rubles and yuan. It sidesteps the  Petrodollar for hydrocarbon trading. Over one-third of the planet just moved away from the dollar when this recent deal was cemented.

As if the Russian-Chinese energy deal is not bad enough, the BRICS are driving a stake into the American economy as they have set up a  new development and investment bank for all of the BRICS countries. The banks  will be headquartered in Shanghai, China, with the first president of the bank will be from India. The BRICS nations, of course, are a group of emerging economies and draws its name from the five member countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. BRICS is also considering starting a joint infrastructure fund with an initial capital infusion of around $100 billion to begin investing in each other’s transportation, water and sewage systems.

Turkey’s Gas Deal with Russia Is a Strategic Game-Changer

The fragmenting of NATO

The fragmenting of NATO

Turkey’s gas deal, just inked with Russia, represents one more time that the grand chess master, Putin, has outmaneuvered the amateur checkers player, Obama.  With this gas deal, Turkey may not have formally left NATO, but make no mistake about it, Turkey has left NATO.

Turkey and Russia are long-time adversaries since the implementation of the Cold War and the advent of the 1947 Truman Doctrine. This gas deal is a staggering blow to the U.S. and NATO because Turkey has been not only a key NATO ally, but it has been the linchpin of all American efforts to bypass Russia with oil and gas pipelines. The situation caused by the Turkey-Russia gas deal is so dire, that in the event of World War III, the U.S. would be forced to destroy this pipeline. In other words, Turkey has just become a military ally with Russia.

Russia’s decision to cancel Russia’s South Stream gas and oil pipeline project was bad enough, but this coupled with Turkey’s signing a gas and oil deal with Russia delivered a staggering and perhaps knockout blow to the ability of the United States to hold together a rapidly fragmenting NATO. South Stream was envisioned as a way to supply Central and Western Europe with Russian gas without worrying about disruptions caused by the Ukrainian situation.

South Stream was supposed to run through the Black Sea, Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary into Austria and points west and it attempted to counter South Stream by proposing another pipeline, called “Nabucco” which was to have linked Austria, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria with Turkey and Azerbaijan. This pipeline failed because the United States failed to secure funding for the pipeline and or a source of gas. Are you keeping a body count of the NATO allies which are going to have extreme difficulty heating their homes and businesses and are now subject to Putin’s blackmail? From a military perspective, these nations provide a buffer between Russian invasion of America’s primary NATO allies of Germany, France, Italy and the UK. Putin will now focus on seeking defectors from these four allies.

Germany, France and Italy’s Motivation to Leave NATO

The eventual defection of Germany, France and Italy is easy to foretell. This is a case of a picture, or in this case, an energy map, is worth a thousand words.

putin natural gas map

 To anyone possessing an IQ above room temperature, this map is the road map to the destruction of NATO. Key NATO allies are being held hostage by Putin through energy blackmail. If NATO was to survive, the time to have attacked Russia was last Spring, but that ship has sailed.  Can you imagine, you just opened your contacts list on your phone and all of friends and business associates are gone. This is what is happening to the United States.

Britain Is Waffling At the Threat of the Coming World War

America is on the verge of losing its closest and most important ally, Great Britain.

Ahead of the Vienna Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, members, mostly Britishhave expressed extreme trepidation of the possibility of coming nuclear war. The conference participants stated that “Urgent action is needed to minimize the risk of a nuclear war”.  Some of the signatories include:

Conservative Defense Secretary Lord King

A Labor Party counterpart Lord Browne

Former Foreign Secretaries Margaret Beckett and David Owen

Former NATO Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, Lord Richards

Former Liberal Democrat leader Sir Menzies Campbell

John McColl, former Chief of the Defense Staff,

Even General James Cartwright, Former Vice-Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, signed the following letter.

The above and other prominent UK leaders stated the following:

“Tensions between nuclear-armed states and alliances in the Euro-Atlantic area and in both South and East Asia remain ripe with the potential for military miscalculation and escalation,” says the letter to Sebastian Kurz, Austria’s Minister for Foreign Affairs.

“In a vestige of the Cold War, too many nuclear weapons in the world remain ready to launch on short notice, greatly increasing the chances of an accident.

“This fact gives leaders faced with an imminent potential threat an insufficient amount of time to communicate with each other and act with prudence.”

“There should also be better crisis management in “conflict hotspots” and new security measures, warning that stockpiles were “insufficiently secure, making them possible targets for terrorism”.

The above is a chicken-little, Neville Chamberlain type of proclamation which is telling the United States that we will not be supported as world events move toward World War III. America will soon be alone.


The Eurasian Economic Union (EAU)

The developments in Russian gas deals has given rise to resurrection of a major portion of the old Soviet Union. Just like the mythical Phoenix, the old Soviet Union is attempting to rise out of the ashes. The EAU is a proposed economic union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia. On November 18, 2011, the leaders of  Belaurus, Kazakhstan and Russia signed an agreement, setting a target of establishing the Eurasian Union by 2015. Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan have expressed interest in joining as well as has Belarus’ neighbor to the immediate south, Ukraine. Isn’t it interesting that Georgia’s Prime Minister, Bidzina Ivanishvili, stated in September of 2013 that they were also examining the advantages of acceding to the EAU. Also in September of 2013, Armenia has announced its intention to join the EAU. This union cannot be allowed to happen by the West because it will tip the balance of power in the world.

Putin’s Red Dawn “Checkmate America” Strategy

Putin and Ortega

Putin and Ortega

Not only has Putin undermined NATO and is strategically leaving America alone to fend for itself, he is quickly putting together a quick strike team from which to militarily invade the United States. As this crisis moves forward, it is amazing how accurate the Red Dawn movie of the 1980’s was almost 30 years ago. Amazingly, Obama has not done one thing to counter the following Latin American Russian military alliance being constructed to invade the United States.

1. According to a March 2014 report by the Strategic Culture Foundation, a progressive, pro-Russian think tank, Nicaragua’s quoted former Sandista leader, Daniel Ortega, who reinstalled himself in 2007 as the Nicaraguan leader stated that  “We are very grateful and very much appreciate the Russian people’s support of our country.” Ortega has accepted the arrival of two Russian strategic bombers and added that more will be on the way as Russia announced that Nicaragua has announced that it will accept routine Russian patrols in both its Caribbean and Pacific ports as well as participating in the joint training of military personnel. Russia and Nicaragua have moved in the direction of a strategic economic and military relationship.


2. putin and fernandezArgentinean President, Cristina Fernández is determined to develop close economic relations with Russia as the left-wing liberal Argentinean leader has invited Russia to invest in fuel projects in an obvious attack upon the Petrodollar. Fernandez also cut a deal with Putin which supports Russia’s grab of Crimea in exchange for Russia’s support of Argentina’s quest to annex the Falkland Islands.



Putin and Correa

3-5. Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa praised Russia as a “great nation”, while visiting Moscow in October of 2013. Putin was indeed praise-worthy because he promised to invest $1.5 billion into new domestic energy projects in Ecuador. Correa also stated that his country was planning on buying Russian military equipment. Russia has signed several billion dollars of contracts with Venezuela and supplies Bolivia, among other countries from the region with military weapons. The military package includes attack aircraft and helicopters.


6. bric summitBrazilian Defense Minister Celso Amorim, stated that “More than buying military equipment, what we are seeking with Russia is a strategic partnership based on the joint development of technology.” Amorim’s statement is consistent with the fact that Brazil, South America’s most populous nation, has announced that it is planning to purchase short-to-medium-range surface-to-air Pantsir S1 missile batteries and Igla-S shoulder-held missiles from Russia. Previously, Brazil has purchased 12 Mi-35 attack helicopters. Russia and Brazil have also signed an agreement for Brazil to acquire 36 attack aircraft. Amorim said Russia and Brazil would also look at working together on space technology and on defense against cyber attacks, an area that has become a Brazilian priority since disclosures that the NSA  has spied on Brazilians, their president and the country’s largest oil company. Russia is marrying their military with Brazil and Brazil could become Russia’s space partner in “killing” America satellites.

7. russia attacks america red dawn Newly elected El Salvadorian President, Sanchez Ceren, has signed an agreement with Putin entitled “Federal Law On Ratification of the Agreement on the Foundations of Relations” which pledges economic and military cooperation. Ceren, is a self-declared Marxist-Leninist and is considered to be very-anti American.

Leaders from the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and Russia declared their intention to establish a means of continuous dialogue “to discuss and synchronize positions on international issues.” CELAC includes thirty-three countries in the Americas, but the United States and Canada are excluded. This is the breeding ground of a “Red Dawn Scenario”.



Putin and Castro

8. Pravda quotes Putin as stating that Russia had obtained the consent of the Cuban leadership to place “the latest mobile strategic nuclear missiles on the Island…”  Recently, the Russians surprisingly docked a Russian spy ship in Havana. This is the Cuban Missile Crisis revisited!



The year 2015 looms large as this is the target date for Putin to complete the construction of the EAU and form an alliance with the other BRIC nations. This means that a war will likely take place prior to the end of 2015 or in early 2016. This war will undoubtedly be nuclear with the losing side resorting to the nuclear option.

To my fellow Americans, it is easy to fall in love with Putin and declare him a hero because he is opposing the IMF and the World Bank. However, if Putin has his way, he will become America’s worst nightmare. Putin is under the control of the banksters at the highest level. The Bankers from Basel want World War III. Putin and Obama are merely pawns in the same scheme. What most of us do not realize is that there is the central banking cartel and then there are the people who really run finance on this planet. The central banks, such as the Federal Reserve, are merely mid-level managers which were created to serve a purpose. The coming conflict is about the preservation of central banking as an international element of control. The real power on this planet are above central banking and are pushing the world towards an eventual war of unification.

A subsequent World War III will wipe out all competing economies and out of chaos will come order, the New World Order. We are about to witness an old-fashioned cockfight while the real power brokers are sitting back and waiting for nature to take its course.

Why hasn’t Obama moved to counter Putin’s moves with regard to the energy encirclement of the United States? If Obama were truly representing the people, he would have done so multiple times. Instead, he spends his time on the golf course while Russia encircles America both economically and militarily. If America was truly to be outmaneuvered by Putin from an energy standpoint and the ruination of the Petrodollar and the American economy were at hand, the time to have launched a war against Putin would have been before NATO began to fragment. I can draw no other conclusion than this President is part of the plot and he is fulfilling his Manchurian Candidate mission of undermining America’s chance to prevail in World War III. There is a good chance that America may be forced to capitulate without firing a shot and the “dreams of Obama’s REAL father will be realized”.

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

Something big is about to happen. So many say that they can feel it in their bones.

A migration to underground hideouts began two years ago in earnest for members of the alphabet soup agency retirees. I knew one of these “refugees” personally and he pointed to 2015 as the time when he anticipated that all hell was going to break loose. I wrote an article about the defection of my FEMA contact, his family and like-minded individuals from FEMA and DHS,  almost two years ago.

Pastor Lindsay Williams recently sent me an email regarding a survival tip for the difficult times ahead. Pastor Williams has been a guest on my show several times and I sent him back an email asking when he would like to come back on my show. He responded that he has stopped doing interviews. His message indicated it is almost time to stop talking and to start preparing for some very dark days.

How do I know?  Some of my very best contacts have told me that it is time to stop warning the people, because it is now time to start hiding from the wrong people. My initial reaction is to not believe them, but there are too many well-placed sources to not take seriously.

Jim Marrs Saw the Warning on the Wall Five Years Ago

In a December 9, 2012 interview on The Common Sense Show, Jim Marrs discussed how approximately 400-500 top level bankers have left their positions and have gone into seclusion. Marrs reminded my listening audience of how the elite have developed seed vaults which only they have access to. Marrs was clearly alluding to the fact that some very bad events are coming and the global elite are aware of it and are moving to meet the threat.  I have firsthand knowledge of four ex-fed officials and their families who have relocated to safety enclaves when doing so was very disruptive to their respective family’s lives. Increasingly, it is looking like some major event(s) is/are coming and persons with insider information are attempting to remove themselves from harm’s way. Jim Marrs will be a guest for three hours (9pm-Midnight Central) on December 7, 2014 to discuss this and other issues.

Another media friend of mine, Paul Martin, of Revolution Radio, has been repeatedly telling me that several key contacts of his from the various alphabet soup agencies as well as the military have, or are, leaving the country in anticipation of what is coming. In the past two weeks, I have had a number of phone calls from media people who are telling me that there sources are repeating the same mantra, or they are just dropping off of  the radar.

“Get ready for 2015″!

We Are In the Calm Before the Storm Period

The late summer and early fall were abuzz with the latest rumors about Ebola. Many of us in the independent media spent countless hours debunking this misinformation being put out by the CDC (e.g the existence of a previous vaccine, the fact that it is airborne, etc.). And just as soon as the Ebola stories peaked in October, somebody in the MSM flipped a switch and virtually all meaningful reporting disappeared from the news. Why?

The reason for Ebola’s disappearance from the media is simple, it was Christmas shopping time. America has become a service economy. Most of the retail shopping for the year happens between Halloween and and the end of the year. The financial success tied to Christmas shopping is based upon the fact that people must trust that it is safe to go out in public. If the public perceived that Ebola could be contracted by going out in public, the Christmas shopping season could be stopped in its tracks and globalist corporations would not be able to maximize profits. However, this all about to change.

What Was the Ebola Scare All About?

Many mistakenly believe that the Ebola scare has been mitigated and nothing could be further from the truth. Isn’t it interesting that we never saw a toxicology report about the so-called victims of Ebola? When some of these victims somehow recovered against all odds, these people were kept away from the media. Why?

Many of us have privately concluded that we in the United States were not dealing with traditional Ebola. What we were dealing with in the United States was something designed to give the impression that we were on the verge of an Ebola pandemic in the United States. Why would the CDC go through such an elaborate charade? The answer is really quite simple, the appearance that the U.S. was on the verge of an Ebola pandemic gave rise to governmental preparations that would not raise an eyebrow from an unaware public. And what preparations am I talking about? I am talking about martial llaw preparations which could easily be morphed from a form medical martial law to politically motivated martial law related to not only a pandemic, but to an economic collapse. And believe me, if Ebola or some other dangerous pathogen makes its way into mainstream America, the economy will collapse because people will not be eating out, shopping, attending sporting events and concerts and the service economy as we know it will crumble in a matter of days.

Martial Law Preparations Arising Out of the Ebola Scare

 By this point in the article, some are saying that “OK Dave, name some sources, something concrete that we can wrap our minds around”. And these people are correct in demanding as much concrete information as possible. This is the point in the article where logic and common sense outweigh doubt and cognitive dissonance.  Judge a man by his actions, not by his words. Forget everything you think you know and learned about the Ebola scare of this past summer and fall. Simply consider the actions and implications of the following events:

The United States has detailed procedures to deal with a pandemic outbreak and it carries the force of law. Under section 361 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S. Code § 264), the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services is authorized to take measures to prevent the entry and spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the United States and between states. The authority for carrying out these functions on a daily basis has been delegated to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC utilizes two basic strategies when trying to contain a public outbreak of something as deadly as Ebola and they are Isolation and Quarantine.

Paul Watson opened a lot of eyes with the following statement: ” The source, an office clerk within the LADHS, said that during a policy meeting on the morning of June 18th last month, his supervisor announced that the Los Angeles County Dept. of Health Services had struck a deal with the government to open up “low cost housing” facilities for homeless people, otherwise known as “FEMA camps.” The source said that his supervisor ordered staff not to use the term “FEMA camps.” One look at who is behind this program should raise the eyebrows of every person. as it is being administered by the Department of Health Services.

“In an effort to respond to the high need for recuperative care services, Housing for Health will open a 38 bed recuperative care site in South LA this summer. The goal of recuperative care is to provide short-term housing with health oversight to homeless DHS patients who are recovering from anacute illness or injury or have conditions that would be exacerbated by living on the street or in shelters. The site was renovated to serve patients with mobility impairments and provides wheelchair accessible community space indoors and in an open-air courtyard. The site will be operated by LAMP Community, a non-profit agency with over 25 years of experience providing services to homeless individuals”.

Can’t talk about FEMA camps? Where there is smoke there is fire.

A memo from the Health and Human Services (HHS) as administered by the Center for Disease speaks about setting up isolation facilities.

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”.

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

Since late May of 2014, the country has been besieged with reports, pictures and videos of UN vehicles in our country.  FOX 5, San Diego, ran

Sightings of these vehicles have been widely reported beginning last Spring.  And this has led some to suspect that an occupation force is being mobilized.

a report on Sunday morning, July 6th, in the early morning hours, which detailed sightings of UN vehicles being transported north of San Diego on Interstate 15 headed towards Riverside. The story said that the vehicles were manufactured in the United States and were being transported for shipment overseas. Really? Does this explain why these vehicles are being transported in SEVERAL southern states? Does the manufacturer have a automotive plant in Georgia, California, Texas, etc? Why didn’t we see these reports in Detroit?

The FOX 5 website contains neither a video or a written report of the story. I suspect the story was a trial balloon used to gauge the believability and response to the story without leaving behind much in the way of evidence.

In every case, the vehicles are being transported and not being individually driven. This clearly suggests the prepositioning of military assets for future use. The UN is preparing to seize American guns and have hired personnel to do so

The references for this first part of this invasion and the second part as well can be found here and here.

In October of 2014, I discovered evidence of Human Health Services medical quarantine camps. However, none of these camps had any medical personnel, medical organizations or any evidence of treatment facilities.

During the “Ebola crisis” we learned that in the event of a pandemic, the Secretary of Human Health Services (HHS) would assume operational control of Federal emergency public health and medical response. In the event of a pandemic outbreak the HHS will order the quarantining of Ebola sufferers and the transport of the same to detainment camps. The mass transport of Ebola victims to quarantine camps is referred to “ambulance services”, and it is a euphemism for transporting sick people to a death camp.

I have found evidence supporting these claims in a federal document entitled  Emergency Support Function #8 (ESF #8) – Public Health and Medical Services Annex.  

This document can be accessed by Googling “ESF #8″ and you will arrive at the following listing and a PDF will appear.

[PDF]Emergency Support Function #8 – Public Health and Medical…/emergency_s…

Federal Emergency Management Agency

Medical Services include responding to medical needs associated with mental health, ….. assistance are executed by ESF #8 in coordination with DHS/FEMA. … primarily for communications, aircraft, and the establishment of base camps.

ESF #8 established the national ambulance contract, which is designed to provide support for evacuating seriously ill or injured patients.

HHS will enlist the VA and Department of Defense assets (e.g. the military) in support of providing “transportation assets, operating and staffing NDMS Federal Coordination Centers, and processing and tracking patient movements from collection points to their final destination reception facilities” (emphasis added).

According to the ESF #8 document, the DOD is the only recognized Federal partner responsible for regulating and tracking patients transported on DOD assets to appropriate treatment facilities (i.e., NDMS hospitals). However, other agencies “may assist with isolation and quarantine measures and with point of distribution operations (mass prophylaxis and vaccination)”.

The ESF #8 document leads to some disturbing revelations.

Look at the participating partners in the “hospital” detainment centers in the EFS #8 document.

 Support Agencies:

Department of Agriculture

Department of Commerce

Department of Defense

Department of Energy

Department of Homeland Security

Department of the Interior

Department of Justice

Department of Labor

Department of State

Department of Transportation

Department of Veterans Affairs

Environmental Protection Agency

General Services Administration

U.S. Agency for International Development

U.S. Postal Service

American Red Cross


No Healthcare Personnel at the HHS/FEMA Detention Camps

In the above list of Ebola detainment centers, I don’t see the CDC or the National Institute of Health listed. Nor do I see any legitimate medical organizations. I don’t even see the presence of any “volunteer” medical organizations such as Doctors Without Borders. Does anyone else find it disturbing that the transport of very sick people will be conducted and the end point is devoid of any medical treatment organizations and/or facilities?

fema box cars

There is not one shred of evidence that these camps are intended to treat or even make comfortable people who will contract Ebola or be exposed to Ebola. The most disturbing thing is that these camps will be death camps for relatively healthy people. If you are a person who is unlucky enough to be discovered to have asthma or merely be temporarily suffering from congestion in one’s lungs from allergies or a simple cold, you could find yourself on one of the Federally approved ambulance services (bus, train, plane) and headed to your final destination. If you doubt this claim, Google Executive Order 13592.



This article listed a small representation of the prepositioning of assets during the Ebola crisis. The prepositioning of martial law assets and concentration camps went largely unnoticed, because most of these developments seemed like reasonable precautions one would find in the midst of an outbreak. Ebola may have “temporarily” disappeared, but the martial law and mass detention plans have not.

In January, the Ebola vaccines will be ready with the first trial centers set up in Knoxville, TN.  Bill Gates did not invest over a half a billion dollars in Ebola vaccines for Ebola to not come back which it will after the Christmas shopping season. The insiders are saying that Ebola, or something as deadly as Ebola, will resurface between mid-January and April. And as you have seen, the flimsiest excuses for detainment and incarceration for Americans have been set into place. We will see mandatory vaccination and medical martial law in 2015.

There is yet another challenge coming our way after the first of the year and that has to do with world’s arms race and World War III preparations as the new cold war is moving towards a hot war. As many of us noted last summer, we were witnessing the emergency infrastructure shift from peacetime to martial law. Remember the consistent scenario which has been revealed on this site: Medical Martial law followed by military martial law which will culminate in World War III.  We are in the quiet time.  When the clock strikes midnight on January 1, 2015, we will begin another countdown, the countdown to Armageddon.

Obama Laugh 1

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

REALLY … What the &%#@ has happened to America? There are so many frustrated Americans today and this can be seen clearly in our combined displeasure or outright anger at what we so sadly term our leadership. Congress has one of the most dismal approval ratings in recent history and our president is not too far behind. From the debacle or disaster of Obamacare to the litany of scandals the White House battles daily, we are now a nation sinking into a quagmire of disarray and discontent with no foreseeable end in sight.

Our illustrious leader (Satire) has committed countless acts that would have wrung screams of impeachment from congress, both of the political parties and every liberal, grass roots organization in existence less than a decade ago. But he seems to be made of Teflon with nothing, no matter how heinous, sticking to him. Those who populate congress today are either cowards, under duress, or have given a whole new meaning and depth to  the concept of complicity.

We as a nation are responsible for (directly or indirectly) the deaths of about three million innocents we insanely re-term collateral damage because it sounds less guilty than slaughtered or killed, and these aggressive actions have been greatly expanded and exacerbated by our Nobel peace prize winning president across an entire region of the globe. This madness continues daily and the total climbs at an alarming rate! We now have highly trained permanent or special forces in over 160 out of 192 countries on this planet.

Our economy and currency are a travesty soon to render this once great nation to third world economic status. Yet nothing is being accomplished to stem this disaster except more egregious spending, that does nothing to soften the economic sufferings of We The People, but instead adds TRILLIONS more to our national debt, effectively pouring gasoline on a raging fire. Now Obamacare (contrary to Obama’s lie) will add a minimum of six $TRILLION more (and that is a very conservative estimate) to the national debt, threatening to destroy what little remains of what used to be the most powerful and prosperous middle class this world has ever seen. So again we have only managed to kick the can of economic disaster a little further down the proverbial road, but with a catastrophic collapse still looming in our not too distant future.

Our once valued and admired freedoms and rights, the reason for untold generations of immigration to America, are now a global joke via such tyranny as the Patriot Act and the NDAA rider, and our world standing is that of a tyrant or world bully! We kid ourselves by using the soft term “the world’s police” but ask yourself, how do you see the modern police? Please understand this is how the world sees America.

Our Second Amendment rights, so obviously valued in this country are being chipped away at with a concerted effort through unconstitutional laws and tyranny. Knowing full well that a majority of Americans and Congress would not support a UN Gun Control treaty … our illustrious leader sent Kerry to sign the treaty anyway, and you had better believe that WILL have a negative impact on your right to own guns.

We now have Free Speech  Zones, REALLY? Where do you see that in the Constitution? When a government designates when and where you can speak your mind, freedom of speech is DEAD! So in essence your rights, thoughts and wishes be damned.

We are spied on today by so many different government agencies and sub agencies that NOTHING you say or do is private anymore, unless you take mind bending and drastic steps to ensure any level of isolation against these intrusions, but then again these very actions will likely throw the light of suspicion on you making your efforts futile … Correct me if I am wrong, but this sure as hell sounds a lot like the old Soviet Union KGB style tyranny we railed so vehemently against a few short decades ago!

And then there was the Bundy ranch fiasco, another case of a monolithic government overreaching its Constitutional powers to support the corporatist elite. For all who still believe that this president and his puppet masters, so intent on selling America out, that it is not even very well hidden anymore, would back down from boots on the ground freedom loving people … NOT! … So why did they? This begs the explanation that the Bundy fiasco was another smoke screen, a distraction from the real tyranny being perpetrated by the boys in the back room.

You must all understand that to maintain their hold on power, those who would rule (not govern or represent) us can’t just stand by and let We The People set the proverbial precedent by ‘self enforcing’ our rights and liberties through protest or mass action … and get away with it; after all we are only the TRUE governors of this Republic. Those actions, if left unchecked, would serve to embolden MANY more Americans to jump on the bandwagon every time tyranny rears it’s ugly head and erode or remove the fear and compliance this government has worked so hard and for so long to instill in us. Now they can’t have that … can they!

A pretty safe prediction is to watch for another major distraction soon (maybe even a staged or false flag event, or disaster) to shift much of the attention currently focused on the immigration and southern boarder debacle, and a dictator style amnesty for over five million criminals that they are taking so much heat for presently … Misdirection, redirection … nothing to see here …

Before you jump at me with comment, “He did not start all this tyranny we suffer today” … I AGREE, but he sure as hell has played the game better and harder than any of his predecessors, bringing the game to a whole new level of reality.

How about the serious increase in the number and scope of nations we are perpetrating hostilities against (that we know of)? I wonder if Mr. Obama has his Nobel Peace Prize in a prominent place for easy viewing in the White House … Could there be anything more undeserved or defamed on this planet? Are the members of the Nobel committee kicking themselves in the butt daily for the shame and ridicule they have brought on themselves and their foundation? Do they cringe every time a report of a new drone strike in any of a dozen countries is released recounting the number of innocent women and children that have been killed?

How about no deficit reducing budget (he campaigned on … twice) to congress in his six plus years, but adding more to the debt than any other president in history in a HUGE fashion?

How about the massive freedom-robbing and power grabbing executive orders and congressional bills he has signed?

How about huge political/diplomatic failures such as Benghazi and Fast and Furious and the IRS scandal?

How about economy-wrecking bills like Obamacare, a bill that is doing more to tear down the middle class in America than any other mechanism in play today? Can you honestly believe the big buck, highly educated economists and writers of this bill did not foresee these implications to working Americans when they where crafting it … REALLY ???

How about the release of some of the most dangerous terrorists in US captivity for an American who hates America, only to have them return to the fight against America with all that pent up hatred and drive for revenge?

And how about his most obvious and egregious debacle, failing his constitutional mandate to protect the American people by sealing our southern boarder. Congress was never needed to seal the border … to make immigration policy or law yes … BUT NOT to seal the border! So why hasn’t he?

This is by far not the entire list, these are only the issues and disasters that stand out or got the most attention. I would make a serious wager that what we are not aware of (yet) far outstrips what we are aware of! But even in what we know, there are far too many more issues and disasters to mention here. And all this was on HIS watch, by his hand, and all (in the grande scheme of things) … Intentional !!!

But the most miraculous part of this: it is all being accomplished while managing to keep a large (but shrinking) portion of the population convinced of his true benevolence through the constant shielding and propagandizing of a complicit Mainstream Media who’s job it is to convince the sheeple all is as it has to be!

So when do We The People decide we have had enough, because once they have all our guns and all his jack boots (FEMA, TSA & DHS etc…) are fully armed and in place, do you think they will just go quietly if we ask please? At this point our options appear to be, unite our voices now into a force that cannot be ignored or dismissed, and effect the change we need to rebuild this Republic in the image it was originally intended, OR …




MaddyBy TLB Contributor: Ken LaRive

In no way do I want to insinuate that only women are to blame. Men are responsible for what they do too. Government programs, the media in all of its various abilities, are also responsible… But to see this, to understand this, all of it must be laid on the table. It is the only way to fully understand it, and if you think it valuable, to reach out and change it.

Seems like many other institutions, from war for profit, intolerant and condescending religions, to the dominate control that government plays in our lives and very spirit, doing what is right with a loving heart will set a precedence, and others will emulate your good intentions. Yes, by doing good, others will take up your standard and imitate it, one at a time… but a mean and ignorant spirit will be emulated too… and as it takes far less effort to perfect, and has become a growing cancer in our new Socialistic/Progressive world.

The miracle that is woman… intuition

Anyone who has ever been married to a woman knows first hand what speculation is, and it has little to do with the formal definition, i.e., The forming of a theory or conjecture without firm evidence.

Call it what you will, an educated guess, a hypothetical synopsis, a conjectural affirmation, a supposition or presupposition, or perhaps a surmised opinion, but all of these descriptions would fall short in an accurate analysis of a woman’s speculative power. It is a true mystery, indeed, an enigma, and every person who ever had a mother knows of that precognitive connection to something akin to magic. Some even suggest it to be a supernatural ability, and it has confused and confounded all scientific scrutiny to describe it.

Like invisible lines of force, perhaps an ability to actually tap into the cosmic plasma of reality, a woman can predict the future, influence the present by sheer will, can see into the great vast myriad of random past possibilities, and choose the one most likely to occur in the future. Somewhere in this prediction, in most every case, is an element of fearful concern. A mother’s fear seems to be the catalyst that can connect the dots, to see the hand before it is played, to actually light a dark future path with a conclusive volition of certainty, and all of it designed as a survival technique. It isn’t a base fear I am referring to, but a kind of fear that is so profound it can not truly be described, as there is nothing stronger than the Love between a woman and her child, and so too for everything she holds dear…And, without a singular doubt, it has lit the mind of men. Take a look around at the men who do not take this amazing gift to heart, and you will find vast and empty space inside of their shells, shadows of what they could be…

Sure, no real way to prove, or show it on a graft, nor is there a statistic of any substance… but we all know that her cognitive ability saved our lives many times. Not only was this gift evident in her eyes, a recognition we learned at her knee, but it permeated from her from morning till night without fail, and could actually float above us like a guiding spirit, even in the middle of the night and far far away…

But I must admit: Some women have been twisted by strong willed, dominating, and unhappy men, and they have responded in like kind. There is a special kind of hate that a woman of this kind produces, and it is called vindictiveness. A vindictive woman has lost her loving will, and displaced it with slow, malicious, and evil intent. They are, in many cases, a product of mean spirited men in their lives, from fathers to husbands… and they fight back with bitterness, resentment, and rancor. And so twisted, they actually revel in the pain of others, some of it they actually inflict, well hidden by deceit.

But there is another kind of women who relish in their speculative gifts… Though fear, in and of itself, may seem negative, when it is mixed with another powerful and primary force, Love (Agape, or selfless Love), they move together as one magical elixir. Could this singular element be the key to her amazing ability, the constant of Love? And what of some men today, who estimates what a man is by the number of conquests he has had, and all of it based on lies and deceit, without honor or responsibility. Isn’t it a woman who teaches them what and who they are, the actual potential of what they can be? A vindictive woman, a jilted woman, builds walls around her mind because of a constant pain she can not extinguish, and in the process pushes and pulls those around her, to fulfill her needs with selfish motivations, and all of it designed by boundaries… Boundaries she creates by the bones of conquest…

We all have our parts to play in this confusing and convoluted world. Men and women are indeed two pieces of the same puzzle, and yet it seems that this ability, just as the strength of a creative spirit that permeates from our hearts, are dwindling fast. In one generation the differences we once held precious, are actually akin to our very survival as a species, and is dissipating in one social experiment after another. B.F. Skinner would be jumping for joy, as his mice studies have mirrored the very breakdown of our society. And yes, metaphorically, some are now eating there babies.

Where once women looked to marry a man who could provide for her family, was genetically superior and healthy. or was deemed by her to posses inordinate survival skills, many of the new kind of experimental woman seek a man who can posses a soft (so called) feminine side… a sensitive side based on emotion, as promoted by the silver screen and the black box. Fitting together as one is not their goal, but dominance and control is. Rolls that were typical and innate to men and women just a generation ago… are, in many cases, entirely reversed. Responsibility is devolving into a collective mindset, at conventionality at war with forms of social orthodoxy that took eons to develop, and some to prefect, are now disregarded as out of date.

Love is understood to now mean lust, self responsibility to selfishness, motivation to achieve is anti- social and unfair, and truth is found in the eye of the beholder where anything goes. And as we battle, 3100 abortions are performed every single day, we have more incarcerations than any other country on the planet because rules are profitable, sex is promoted to be perverse and yet is the number one selling tool, government intrusion into our lives give us constant trauma, designed to justify their ability to take away Liberty. And all of it tied together like a gift, for corporate profit, a black bottom line without a moral compass.

The losses are horrifying to a Libertarian, as we see this systemic failure of individual responsibility as designed, one mandate after another, in increments undetectable by the average person so involved in every day activities. It becomes a structure, and on it are nailed mindless pacifists, intolerant, self-centered, perfect fodder for a system that produces, by indoctrination, cookie-cut minds, easily controlled. Women, who spend an hour in front of the mirror, shop in a super market where over 80 percent of the products they buy, to feed their family, are unhealthy if eaten on a regular basis. They can not tell you what the national debt is, or have even a remedial understanding of what a Republic based on law is, and the rote and cant of their limited and uninspired education is soon forgotten as frivolous… as are their counterparts, the new metro-sexual men.

In no way do I want to suggest that men do not have their own form of survival speculation, or that women no longer have their speculative ability, but that both are being systematically, and quite possibly irreconcilably destroyed.

Where once they motivated their men to hunt for food, now many abhor this practice to be barbaric, and sympathetic to the plight of a Bambi-like entity who cowers in fear deep in the foreboding woods crying to its mama, where critters like spiders, snakes, mosquitoes, tics and fleas and flies, heat and cold, permeates inhospitably. And it isn’t as if they have quit the use of eating meat, but that the process of that kill is found too close to their microcosm of borders. Borders that grow taller and stronger with each passing day in their lives, boundaries prescribed to them not from the inside out by a classical education, but by propaganda and scientifically formulated advertisement, with all of that point-of-sale directed right at them, an open vessel… an empty container needing fulfillment.

Divorce is up from 60 to 80 percent, depending on the color of your skin, and children out of wedlock hold about the same number. Some men no longer know how to even greet a woman, and a simple kiss on the cheek becomes awkward. A smile is interpreted by some as a come-on, because their minds are cluttered with false speculations… created by insensitive “new men”, and the tipping of a hat or opening a door forgotten and unappreciated. Words like chivalry, gallantry, valor, heroism, honor, and respect, is lost by new and meaningless games of social confusion, and all of the muddiness is produced by a media mindset, where Black Friday and a January white sale become an every-day mentality, and women… who once would multitask an entire household, drives to the corner market for a frozen pizza or TV dinner while listening to the radio. She cracks her window and displays her cigarette with a perfectly manicured and delicate hand that has known no physical work, because she does not want to stink up her new car, …and her lungs are not much considered, because she thinks that she is can beat all odds. And as she paints her eyes in the rear view mirror, speeds and zing-zags while texting, she is no longer guided by a nurturing force for goodness and self awareness that we old men remember. Instead, she displays an overt disdain, an arrogant demeanor, as she uses the lust of the new men as her personal power over them. Yes, I remember it well… Once taught to take a strong stance against the advances of a young man’s libido, they now attempt to match it with the same verve, as they see others doing in the great wasteland, their true god.

Because their speculation is no longer based on unselfish concern and Love, but a nature of selfish needs, the outcome is given in like kind. It is a universal law, the law of cause and effect, as what you sow you will reap, and the questions we once asked this life are, to them, now demands, as if everything is self-balanced, fair, free, and deserved. Without a pure and loving speculation from women, who were, and still are, the very cornerstones of our society, men are blind. And without strong men of value, so too are women… Perhaps, and I dare to say… our ancestors, who braved an uncertain and dangerous world arm and arm, might have had the true magical mixture, where men and women actually reveled in their differences. Here we find ourselves in a wondrous world, and few appreciate it…

There is no clear-cut method I can see to reverse this trend. The force we have to oppose is vast and powerful, with bright colored lights that dazzle a suggestive mind… but then there are some among us who still remember, when men were men, and women were…

A good partner…

And I will continue to open doors, to put women and children on pedestals with awe and respect, to tip my hat with a smile, and to put my arm out as a gesture of chivalry… that the new woman considers to be a trap of male dominance. I still walk on the the street side, and as we walk together, I will have her hand on my arm, perfectly balanced, and there is a certain amount of comfort as we walk in the French Quarter. She knows that I would die for her, and she considers me true, tested, capable, and trustworthy… and the new men know this too, and move out of our way without understanding… and under my coat I carry a 9mm, as some things do not change, and I consider myself on constant guard duty, just as the men of old must have been, so I’ve been told, so long ago. I have been married to a real woman of speculation, for nearly 43 years, and I am so honored, lucky really, to have found her. But I had the ability to see her from across the room when she was just 14, and we have been together ever since…

Author’s note: I’m finished “The Robber Barrons” by Mathew Josephson, (holy cow), and have started “The Presidency of John F. Kennedy” by Herbert S. Parmet, who has brought tears to my eyes from the very first page… Know your past, and you will know the direction you wish to take in the future. And oh, one other thing, or two: Change does not always mean for the better. Don’t vote for a person because of the color of his skin, but what he is inside, but you won’t know him unless you take the time to study. Trust no one with you mind, and immortal soul. Different does not mean better, and if you dress like a clown you should not be surprised when people laugh. The reason I never got a tat is a simple one… I could not think of one symbol strong enough to outlast me, and what kind of person would want to go through life with the face of Micky Mouse on their arm… and the Chinese symbols on your neck? Well, this world has a place for everyone… And I’ll have a pickle with my hamburger please. Thanks for listening, and good hunting.

Women are the conscience of men. Do you understand that concept? A hundred years ago most everyone knew this… I am not referring to our conscious ability, our self-awareness, but conscience, our moral compass. When women lose that ability, society falls, and dominant men, evil in intent, will take control. Take a look at your world, and you will see it to.

The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie—deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth—persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” JOHN F. KENNEDY

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

People often ask me, “Dave, how do we turn this around and defeat the globalists”? I frequently tell them that there is no turning this around. I have an attorney who is continually writing to me and stating that we need to teach the people the Constitution. “Mr. lawyer, our people cannot even read the Constitution, much less understand it”.

The parents and grandparents have lost this country to a group of vicious and sociopathic bankers because for 3 generations, Americans have failed to turn off their TV sets and allowed the state to educate their children.This article is about why parents need to home school their children in order to keep them out of the clutches of the government. Yes, there are good teachers and great schools still left. However, there are not enough of them. We need to rescue our children from the propaganda of the state, before they are totally taught to love their servitude and educate them in an environment which will honor true knowledge, not blind obedience.

If the Biblical saying (Hosea 4:6) “My people perish from lack of knowledge.”  is indeed true, Americans should be placed at the top of the endangered species list. We need to educate our children at home before we lose this generation as well.

Dumb and Dumber

Just how dumb are we? Consider a new report from the Intercollegiate Studies Institute about civic literacy concludes that the average American is too dumb to vote intelligently.

Over 70% of the test takes, including college students and elected officials flunked the 33 multiple choice question test which covered basic civics.

How bad were the results? Consider the fact that 27% of the elected officials surveyed could not name even one right contained in the first amendment. How will we know when the country is placed under martial law? The answer: We won’t!  But neither will the majority of our leaders.

Rick Shenkman, author of the book Just How Dumb Are We, found that 87% of American college students could not find Iraq on a map. In fact, Shenkman also found that:

- Only 1 in 5 know that we have 100 United States senators.

-Only 2 out of 5 citizens can name the three branches of the federal government.

-Only 20% of young Americans between the ages 18-34 read a newspaper daily. An amazingly low 11% report surfing Internet news sites. 

Among 18- to 24-year-old Americans given maps:

-83 percent cannot find Afghanistan

-76 percent cannot find Saudi Arabia -70 percent cannot find New Jersey

-11 percent cannot find the United States

Only 17% of college graduates understood the contrast between a free market economy and centralized planning. Perhaps this explains why America was not rioting in the streets following the passage of the bail out. I am left wondering what percentage of Americans actually believe that the Federal Reserve is both Federal and has reserves. Soon, nearly 100% of Americans will not be able to find their wallets.

 Class Size

Public or private schools, with class sizes of 30-40 kids,  doesn’t inspire creative or critical thinking. If large classeshave to be on the same page, literally, those who learn faster are held back by those who are slower. Rote memorization does not lead to true understanding.

Mass Indoctrination

The public educational system has always been used as a tool for indoctrinating kids into whatever the currently accepted belief systems and standards of behavior are considered acceptable by the elite. As I have written about, elementary students in San Bernadino, CA., made their students bow on one knee when they heard the teachers whistle. All across this country, all support of the Second Amendment is eviscerated from most schools (e.g. suspending children for drawing a gun, pointing a finger gun, playing imaginary war games on the playground).

Mass Inoculations

Homeschooling your children can help them avoid the often dangerous and required vaccinations and enforced psychotropic “medications”. There are many concerns of how children cope with the drudgery of forced institutional education by resorting to illegal drugs or prescription drugs obtained illegally.

Mass Illiteracy

It takes the schools of today far too many years to teach reading and writing skills along with basic grammar, and math. Most of the problem is due to sheer class size. It should take only a few months to learn each of these basic items for most. Today, about 40% of  high school graduates are lacking in those basic literacy skills.

Mass Cloning

A generation of making dedicated teachers teach the exact same thing, using the exact same methods, has produced an educational cloning factory. This type of education produces a conditioned response in our children, instead of free and independent thinking. It is an excellent propaganda tool.

Mass Deception

Robert Kennedy Jr. once stated that, “Americans are over entertained and under informed.” You can help switch that around by exposing your children to texts and videos that are not allowed throughout all the grades of public education. How about teaching children how the Federal Reserve system is ripping them off and has been for a century in which the dollar has slipped in value to less than four cents. How about teaching our children how to balance a checkbook. How about allowing children to pursue what they love, learn real history, engage in a critical analysis the present political leadership and most of all, let’s have them learn what the research says about real contentment and long lasting happiness? Our children need to be challenged in ways that are appealing to them. The establishment is interested in using school as an instrument of indoctrination and teaching that the state is sovereign, not the people.


The state wants to produce children who are smart enough to do their jobs, but not so smart that they question authority. The banker-run state has accomplished their goal in subverting the Constitution and turning us into passive sheep who are incapable of challenging authority. If we hope to mount any resistance against the tyranny which has taken over our country, we need to remove the tyrants incessant voice from the ears of our children. The biggest reason to home school your children is to reintroduce God to the lives of our young in a manner that integrates His perfect word into the daily lives of our children in a manner which is fully engrained into the lives of our children.

Home school children consistently outperform public school, home school your children!

Common Core is exacerbating these issues.

If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”
