"If the American people only knew that this was there last Thanksgiving".

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

I  sincerely hope your family has a blessed  Thanksgiving, complete with all the turkey, stuffing  and pumpkin pie that you could eat. May you enjoy fellowship with those who are dearest to us.

If you are one of the remaining Americans who has a enough to eat, count your blessings! We Americans may not have many Thanksgivings left to celebrate under the Red, White and Blue!

Disturbing Developments

In recent years the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been regionalizing disaster supplies and rapidly procuring hundreds of millions of ready-to-eat meals, blankets, and body bags. Combined with the DHS’ suspiciously massive purchases of ammunition, one has to ask why are the Feds doing this?

In fact, the government has been buying so many supplies and in such large amounts that shortages have affected the world’s leading manufacturers to the point they’ve been forced to suspend shipments to retail customers of survival foods and ammunition.

Why is the Obama administration engaged in this behavior? There can only be one answer. This administration intends to use food as a weapon in order to force compliance in the coming marital law which will be perpetrated by a series of false flag terror attacks similar to what just occured in Paris.

Obama does not have far to go bring America to its knees when it comes to food vulnerability. America is already in a great deal of danger as a result of food shortages which are manifesting in certain segments of our society.

A Nation of Plenty, Sort of….

hunger_in_america__by_poasterchild-d4xargcAs you prepared your feast, did you think about the fact that we in America throw away more food than many countries have an opportunity to eat? As you pulled your chair up to your Thanksgiving table, did you think about the fact that half the world goes to bed hungry? America has its shame in this area as well.

Since the end of WWII, most Americans have been blessed with plenty to eat, so much so, that we simply take our overflowing of Thanksgiving blessings for granted.

thanksgiving footballIf you think an 800 number begging you to feed a hungry child is going to appear, you would be mistaken. However, there are people, who have power over us, who would like to make this the last Thanksgiving that America will celebrate as a Constitutional Republic. and to some extent, America is extremely vulnerable to being starved into submission by the bankers as a means of political control. As your family has the Thanksgiving football games on TV today, and you are bombarded by messages of “love your veterans” and aren’t we lucky to live in a land with such blessings, please consider the message of the picture contained in this graphic, or note the statistic listed below in relation to our land of plenty.


“Happy Thanksgiving! We Are Halfway To Being Starved Into Submission”

A Global Awakening

Brzezinski, one of the most hated and well-known globalists, recently lamented that there is a global awakening to the source of the tyranny on this planet and that “they” must accelerate their timetable for the completion of a global takeover. And the full-court press has subsequently been placed on humanity as we are under assault in ways never witnessed before.

One of the most popular methods of subjugation has to do with controlling who eats and who dies. Historically, food has been one of the most effective tools of subjugation.

Today as we contemplate our good fortune with our full plates and full bellies, wouldn’t it be ironic if we had to contemplate a future where millions were kept on the edge of starvation as a means of political control? Of course this could never happen in America, could it? Few people know that seven million Americans starved to death during the Great Depression in what could be called the Great American Holodomor.

The Historical Precedent of Subjugating Through Starvation

The lessons of history clearly demonstrate that dictatorial regimes, whether they be Socialists, Communists, and Marxists will not hesitate to use food as a weapon against their own people in order to solidify power and impose absolute autocratic control. Food can be withheld from the masses by preventing it from being grown and harvested, by contaminating it and rendering it unfit for human consumption or by simply preventing food from being distributed to a targeted population.

The two most notable examples of dictators using food as a weapon in order to destroy the free will of their people comes from the regimes of Stalin and Hitler.

Josef Stalin engaged in his own Soviet style Holocaust when, in 1932 and 1933, and estimated six to 20 million people in the Ukraine died from starvation when Stalin implemented his prescription of “hope and change” policies in order to eliminate the Ukrainian’s desire for becoming their own nation-state.

Upon assuming power, the Stalinist Communist regime rapidly nationalized the food industry and forced all of the region’s farms into collectives. Thus, Stalin’s version of the Holocaust came to fruition in what history has dubbed, the “Holdomor,” in which millions perished in only a two year period when the Soviet government began to exterminate the Ukrainian population by taking control of food and food production.

Hitler proclaimed that food could be used as a tool “…to discipline the masses” and he did not hesitate to use the control of food as a type of carrot and stick in which he would reward accomplishment and punish failure as well as to ferment preferential class distinctions in which his armed forces received the largest food ration cards. Skilled workers who were engaged in industries critical to the building of the German war machine, received food ration cards which were slightly less in value. And, finally, the prisoners and the Jews received the lowest valued Nazi food ration cards. Food ration cards were also utilized as incentives to increase industrial production and were also increased in value when productive Nazi workers would be promoted. Food ration cards were diminished in value for the failure to meet Nazi production goals. Hitler’s use of what psychologists refer to as classical conditioning techniques reduced the will of the German population to a pack of Pavlovian dogs who were conditioned to be totally dependent upon the government for their survival.


Most recently, Somalia thug, Farah Aideed, systematically starved his people into submission as a brutal civil war raged in both Darfur and Rwanda where the Islamic regimes sought the annihilation of ‘infidels’ and the use of food was one of the primary weapons designed to force compliance. And of course, Pol Pot, Castro and Mao all used food deprivation to quarantine their political opposition and exact absolute allegiance to their respective dictatorial regimes.

It is safe to say that the aforementioned dictators did not rule over countries that enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast similar to what you and I are enjoying today.

The US Government and Its Mass Starvation Policies

food is not a weaponThe use of food by the U.S. government has been a matter of official U.S. governmental covert policy since 1974-1975.

In December, 1974, National Security Council directed by Henry Kissinger completed a classified study entitled, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study was based upon the unproven claims that population growth in Lesser Developed Countries (LDC) constituted a serious risk to America’s national security.

In November 1975 President Ford, based upon the tenets of NSSM 200 outlined a classified plan to forcibly reduce population growth in LDC countries through birth control, war and famine. Ford’s new national security adviser, Brent Scowcroft, in conjunction with CIA  Director, George H. W. Bush, were tasked with implementing the plan and the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture assisted in the implementation of these insane genocidal plans.

NSSM 200 formally raised the question, “Would food be considered an instrument of national power? … Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth?” Kissinger has answered these questions when he stated that he was predicting a series of contrived famines, created by mandatory programs and this would make exclusive reliance on birth control programs unnecessary in this modern day application of eugenics in a scheme that would allow Henry to have his cake and eat it too in that the world would finally be rid of the “useless eaters!”

Third world population control, using food as one of the primary weapons, has long been a matter of official covert national policy and a portion of President Obama’s Executive Order 13603 (EO), National Defense Resources Preparedness is a continuation of that policy. Only now, the intended target are not the LDC’s but, instead, the American people and after Obama declares martial law, food will undoubtedly be used to subjugate the more resistant regions of our country.

Could Obama Become the Next Stalin?

The potential for the extreme events in Ferguson spreading across the country are real. If the country was to go into martial law Obama-destruction121
lockdown, would food be used by this administration to control the population?

On the surface, it seems unlikely that any US president would ever starve any segment of the American people to death. However, when one considers the implications of Obama’s EO 13603, there can be no doubt that Obama would not hesitate to make this Thanksgiving, the last Thanksgiving, if not, why else would Obama have created the executive order.

Obama has total and absolute control over all food where his EO states:

e)  “Food resources” means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption.  “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.

(f)  “Food resource facilities” means plants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for the production, processing, distribution, and storage (including cold storage) of food resources, and for the domestic distribution of farm equipment and fertilizer…”

This unconstitutional EO is particularly disturbing in that it clearly states that the government has control over anything that is “capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals…”  If you thought that you and your loyal dog, Fido, were going to get through the coming food crisis by storing and consuming dog food, think again.

How will farmers maintain the nation’s food supply when all fertilizer, their farm equipment and all of their vehicles are under the control of this sociopathic  President or the next power-hungry President?

The term all food storage facilities includes your refrigerator, your pantry and even the very food in your cabinets as well as what is on your kitchen table. In short, anywhere you keep food is now under the control of the government and can be redistributed.

Planned Starvation In Modern Day America

Were you scratching your head in bewilderment as you watched a couple of years back,  on the news, as the Amish have had their farms raided, raw milk producers have been jailed and the kids running lemonade stands have been shut down and ticketed? Now you know why these abuses are being perpetrated by the government in that it represents a mere conditioning process designed to get all U.S. citizens used to the idea that the government owns all food and food production.

The most clever aspect of this EO is that no Hegelian Dialectic (i.e., false flag event) is needed as a pretense to seize food and imperil survivability. Section 201(b) of the Obama EO clearly states that this EO is enforceable under both “emergency and non-emergency conditions.”


fema home away from homeIn an interesting footnote in history, Hitler used the Jews as forced labor as he systematically starved them to death in several of the labor death camps. What is to prevent REX 84 or PDD 51 from being carried out on American soil. After all, EO 13603 calls for civilian conscription, under the Department of the Labor, without compensation!

Is Obama setting the table to take his place among Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Castro and Mao as another despot in the long line of tyrannical leaders who would grant themselves the authority to subjugate the masses by using food as a weapon after declaring martial law? Americans desperately need to look at history in order to understand what happens every time the people of a government allows the government to control its food supplies and farms.

I sincerely hope that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving dinner, because if Obama does decide to implement EO 13603, today’s Thanksgiving dinner, could become known as ”The Last Thanksgiving Dinner”.

If you needed more of a reason than the protection of civil liberties for limiting the NSA’s surveillance powers, would it sway you to know that the current program of data collection is largely ineffective? Don’t just take my word for it. In a leaked internal newsletter, an NSA analyst explains how he stumbled across a “goldmine” of information the NSA had collected in its undiscerning dragnet:

“By sheer luck, (and a ton of hard work) I discovered an important new access to an existing target and am working with TAO to leverage a new mission capability,” the analyst wrote to colleagues. TAO refers to Tailored Access Operations, an NSA hacking team which had collected the 900 usernames and passcodes. . . .

Matthew Green, a Johns Hopkins Information Security Institute professor, told The Intercept it was “interesting” that the analyst used the word “discovered” because it means that either the NSA “didn’t realize” it had been collecting PDVSA’s information or that, perhaps, there had been a bureaucratic miscommunication on the subject.

“They’re capturing so much information from their cable taps that even the NSA analysts don’t know what they’ve got,” Green said.

That is interesting. And it’s not the first time this has happened. Have you noticed how the NSA is able to reveal heaps of information about terrorists right after those terrorists strike? It’s because they already have the information. They just don’t know it’s significant until after an attack. Though the information might make for a more interesting biopsy of an already-accomplished act of terror, the fact is that the purported purpose of surveillance is to prevent terrorist actions. And under our formerly more restricted (more constitutional) guidelines, we could have easily collected the same pertinent information after an attack if we wanted it.

In other words, the currently expanded powers aren’t working. And it’s probably even worse than you think. Notice that this “goldmine” of information wasn’t on a possible terror suspect or organization. It was actually on a Venezuelan state oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela (also called PDVSA). And a 2010 document indicated that the NSA’s data collection on PDVSA had gone “stagnant.” Think about that. The NSA wanted access to more information on an important, prominent, national company. It actually had that information, and didn’t even know it. It took “sheer luck” to stumble across the pertinent info in the galaxy of mostly useless info the NSA had already collected. If it’s that bad for a fixed, national company, imagine how bad it is for a roving, individual terrorist. Just let it sink in: finding info on a company requires a ton of work and sheer luck when the NSA already has the information. Finding useful information on a single terror suspect is then far less like finding a needle in a haystack. It’s more like finding a needle buried in sand somewhere in the world’s oceans.

France Moves to Make Conspiracy Theories Illegal by Government Decree

GR Editor’s Note

The following text was first published in March 2015 in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks.

In the context of the tragic events of November 13 in Paris, this analysis brings to the forefront the issue of freedom of expression and critique of the established political order and media narrative in France as more broadly in the EU and North America.

In this regard, Francois Hollande’s decision to  establish a State of Emergency constitutes a threat against online independent media including those which are casually referred to as “conspiracy theorists”. 

With the repeal of civil liberties, the independent media will in all likelihood be the target of State repression.  

The broader question is the following: is the State of Emergency in France intended to eventually establish a de facto totalitarian regime in France (and more broadly in the EU) under the disguise of democracy, namely to abolish the political and social foundations of the French Republic. This totalitarian environment and its media propaganda apparatus are also required to grant legitimacy to the US-NATO led “global war on terrorism”.  

Michel Chossudovsky, November 25  2015 (Global Research)


Political elites and super-bureaucrats are worried. It’s becoming harder to control consensus reality. 

A history stitched together by lies and cover-ups, political assassinations, slight-of-hand false flag deceptions, secret societies, dual loyalties and stolen fortunes – this has been the exclusive privilege of organized crime and the ruling elite for centuries.

Putting aside history’s ‘big ticket’ items though, the real reason for this authoritarian trend is much more fundamental. By knocking out their intellectual competition, political elites and their media moguls hope to minimalize, and thus eliminate any alternative analysis and opinion by applying the completely open-ended and arbitrary label of “extremist” to speech. They want to wind back the clock, where a pre-internet, monolithic corporate media cartel held a monopoly on ideas.

Although France has taken the lead in this inter-governmental effort (see below), the preliminary assault began this past fall with British Prime Minster David Cameron publicly announcing on two separate occasions, that all of these so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ (anything which challenges the official orthodoxy) should be deemed as “extremist” and equivalent to “terrorist” and should be purged from society on the grounds of ‘national security’. The first came with Cameron’s warped speech at the UN, and afterwards, a similar charge was made by the UK leader against anyone who dares press the issue of institutional paedophilia and child abuse.

Watch this UN speech by Cameron where he clearly claims that ‘conspiracy theorists’ are the ‘root cause’ and indeed, an equal threat to national security as ISIS terrorists currently running amok in Syria and Iraq

As yet, few are aware of how in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shootings, French Prime Minster, Francois Hollande delivered an official declaration (see full report and text from his speech below). However, Hollande takes it beyond the usual hyperbole and focuses on giving the state an administrative and legal foothold for policing both speech and thought crimes in France. If this can be accomplished in France, then a European roll-out would soon follow.

Ironically, in order to achieve this fascist leap forward, Hollande has equated “conspiracy theories” to Nazism, and is calling for government regulations to prevent any sharing or publishing of any views deemed as ‘dangerous thought’ by the state. Specifically, Hollande is citing “Anti-Semitism” and also anything which could inspire ‘acts terrorism’ – as the chief vehicles for what the state will be designating as ‘dangerous thoughts’. With the thumb of Hebdo still pressing down, this may just sound like politics writ large by the French leader, but in reality it’s full-blown fascism.

Worse yet, with all of the world leaders gathered togther in Paris in January supposedly marching solidarity for ‘free speech’ and proudly chanting “Je Suis Charlie” (image above), that Hollande would use this as political cover to restrict free speech in Europe should shock even.

RINF reports how the new censorship regime has already been implemented this week:

“Earlier this week, the Interior Minister of France — with no court review or adversarial process — ordered five websites to not only be blocked in France, but that anyone who visits any of the sites get redirected to a scary looking government website, saying:

While it could be argued that the four websites initially listed by the government for ‘blocking’ were exclusively for ISIS/ISIL-related activity and thus, should be kept hidden, the government has made no caveat in its reams of policy literature, other than some vague language as to what it defines as ‘extremist’, as to where this growing list will stop, or indeed, if it has any limits at all. Because this process is extrajudicial, then there will be no warning to gov’t targets of this new regime. In fact, as RINF reports, this has already happened:

“In that first batch was a site called “” The owner of that site not only notes that he was never first contacted to “remove” whatever material was deemed terrorist supporting (as required by the law), but that nothing in what he had posted was supporting terrorism.”

Will French gov’t censors also block this website – because it is challenging the government’s new public filtering program? Are we entering a new intolerant, Chinese-style policing culture in Europe, and throughout the west? Certainly they have the ability and the legal clearance to do just that right now.

Fear of losing control over manipulative narratives has always been a primary obsession with those in power, and clearly, based on what we’ve seen here – governments are making an aggressive move on free speech now. Skeptics will no doubt argue that this 21WIRE article itself constitutes a conspiracy theory. If that was the case, then why have western governments, particularly those in the US and Britain, already spent millions, if not billions in state funds in order to infiltrate, disrupt, and occupy forum websites, and social networking groups of so-called ‘conspiracy theorist and even creating entirely new groups just to contradict them? Does that not already prove what the government modus operandi is?

As if that wasn’t enough already, now France wants to take it to a whole new authoritarian level. It may sound ridiculous, but this is exactly what is taking place in government as we speak.

History shows that once this new regime is in place, they will not relinquish any new powers of censorship, and so a long, intellectual dark age is certain to follow…

Most Americans are too busy to pay attention to the United Nations, let alone the actions of their own government. This is unfortunate considering the fact that the place is run by representatives of vile, authoritarian regimes that are always looking for ways to control their respective populations as well as those of other countries.

Many of these efforts are embodied broadly under an initiative known as Agenda 21, which was further exposed recently during a speech by Pope Francis. In an encyclical released over the summer, the pontiff lamented about environmental issues and concentration of wealth in too few hands in a document that actually reads more like a globalist political manifesto than a religious or scientific offering.

At the time, we provided some definition and detail into Agenda 21. Pushed by the United Nations, the agenda consists of a bevy of proposed regulations that have been years in the making and essentially strip individuals of their freedom while asserting centralized control over private property. The provisions amount to population control and reduction in certain areas deemed ripe for “sustainability”; control over local and national economies via the regulation of carbon emissions and other mechanisms of pollutants; and globalized central control over the financial decisions of businesses and especially landowners.

Chipping the global population

Now, as reported by Michael Snyder at Blacklisted News, the UN wants to essentially microchip everyone on the planet so that global elitist “managers” can track us all 24/7/365 by 2030, which is when the elitists undoubtedly believe they will have sufficiently pacified the populace.

Snyder drew in part upon a previous post of his at The Economic Collapse Blog where he discussed 17 new “Global Goals” adopted by UN representatives in late September.

Among those goals is this nugget: “By 2030, provide legal identity for all, including birth registration.” [See it here and click on item 16, then view the drop-down menu].

“The United Nations is already working hard toward the implementation of this goal – particularly among refugee populations,” Snyder writes. “The UN has partnered with Accenture to implement a biometric identification system that reports information ‘back to a central database in Geneva.'”

Snyder referenced a piece posted at Find Biometrics, a “global identity management” firm, which states:

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is moving forward with its plans to use biometric technology to identify and track refugees, and has selected a vendor for the project. Accenture, an international technology services provider, has won out in the competitive tendering process and will oversee the implementation of the technology in a three-year contract.

Snyder points out that according to additional information published by Find Biometrics, the technology will be utilized by the UN to eventually encompass every man, woman and child on the planet – not just refugees.

They’re taking the world for themselves, and that means taking it away from you

He also notes that none of the language being used by the planetary masterminds is selected at random. We are referred referred to by the UN and many governments as “global citizens”; our economies are becoming more and more integrated (hence the new Trans-Pacific Partnership – the latest effort to advance economic “globalization”); and the tnternet has created global interconnectivity.

Even worse, Americans – the most “independent” of all people – are going along with it.

“Decades ago, most Americans would have been up in arms over something like this,” Snyder writes. “But now most people just seem to accept these changes passively. Very powerful secret societies and international organizations have been moving us in this direction for a very long time, and most Americans simply have no idea what is happening.”

Much of our inattention can be blamed on other factors. For one, tens of millions of people are distracted because they are trying to eke out a living; others choose to be distracted, spending more time paying attention to what Hollywood is doing or what friends are saying on social media.

Meanwhile, the world is being shaped by the elite, which primarily involves taking it away from – and then managing – you.

TLB Preface: This show was recorded several months ago but its message is still so germane, if anything … the message is even more important today. Please check out Duke’s book to get a clear view of what lies beyond the veil. Please read and listen.

Republished on 11/20/15

By Author & TLB Contributor: Duke Lakeland

America needs help!  Financial instability, fighting factions, corporate greed, irresponsible Congress, etc.  Have you tried to influence politics but failed at it?  Maybe you did contact your members of Congress and got no joy – then gave up.  Have you at least been able to help things at a local level?

We have to get control of the federal government which is spiraling out of control by stopping the things that aren’t working to our benefit and change to things that will benefit us all.  First comes understanding – then comes action!

There is a group that is sucking the life out of this country that is behind the fighting, the racial strife, the corporations buying up Congress, struggling to make ends meet, an inadequate minimum wage, financial bubbles and bursts, etc. The people in this group appear to have no allegiance to any country and especially none to the common man.

However, the other part of the equation has to do with citizen participation.  Do you know people who complain about the way things are going but don’t do anything about it?  Have you ever done that yourself?

There is an old military tactic – DIVIDE AND CONQUER.  If an army could splinter up its enemy and get the splinter groups fighting within their own ranks, the splinter groups could be picked off one by one until they were completely conquered.

The first task is to find out who is really pulling the strings.

If we just fight among ourselves, we won’t make it.  We have to expose and cut off the head of the snake.  We need to expose the head of the snake – the one group that pushes all the other agendas on us.  It doesn’t matter if you are Left or Right, Democrat or Republican, old or young, we all need to work together to get rid of this group from our country because nothing will get fixed until that happens.

Every day the federal government runs up debt that our children and grandchildren are going to have to pay.  There won’t be enough money to pay this debt, so they will have to pay with their homes, their jobs, their future.  They are rapidly becoming slaves to this debt and it’s not fair to them.  Those who stand to benefit from this are the group I mentioned above.  They are pushing their agenda in the halls of Congress with millions and even billions of stolen dollars.

With understanding comes hope, with hope comes action.  We cannot leave it up to our children and grandchildren to fight the snake alone and unarmed.  We all need to work together to fix this now.  If we do this, we will be able to create a new civilization that will outshine anything we have ever seen in the history of Earth.


Now lets get a little more specific …

The Truth Behind the Veil: (or Dig Deep – Your Life May Depend On It)

For anything broken to be fixed, one must know the truth. Lies and false statistics will give you wrong answers.

Yes our country is in trouble. Let’s look at Washington, D.C. and what is passing for politics there. The federal government is in free-fall. This would be the time to know exactly what the altitude of the plane is, how fast it is falling, whom we could talk to who had been in this predicament before and gotten out of it, etc. Unfortunately, the experts who really know what they are talking about are being laughed at or ignored.

You have to look under the veil. If you don’t, you will miss the big picture. Here are some of the areas that the federal politicians have put behind a veil:

Unemployment Rate: On the Bureau of Labor Statistics website, it shows that unemployment peaked at 10% in 2009 and has gradually gone down to 5.5% as of March of 2015. Searching on the internet, I came across an article that was in Forbes. According to this article, as of August 2014 when the rate was being reported as 6.1%, the rate was really 12.6% if you took all factors into consideration. Some of those factors are that the lower rate is computed by removing all people from the list who have run out of unemployment benefits and doesn’t take into consideration people able to find only part-time work.

Social Security Trust Fund. A “fund” is an account with cash in it put aside to be available when needed later. “Trust” means someone is in charge who will protect it. We are told that the Social Security Trust Fund has $2.6 trillion in it which will run out of money in 2033. Looking a little deeper into that we find that ALL THE MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT, probably by Congress, and it has been replaced with IOUs called U.S. bonds. All those bonds have to be replaced with current revenues. Looking a little deeper we discover that our members of Congress are not themselves covered by Social Security – they have a cushy retirement plan that pays them their entire salary for life, even when they are voted out of office.

Our Money System. Our money is controlled by the Federal Reserve System (the “Fed”), which is not part of the federal government even though a lot of people think that because of the word “Federal.” They are said to be able to control booms and busts, making them less extreme, but in reality they make them 10 times worse that if they stayed out of it altogether. The people running the Fed pretend to have divine inspiration when it comes to our money, interest rates, the economy, and promote the propaganda that they should be allowed to act in secrecy so that they are not influenced by politics. The banking and finance industry gives millions of dollars to Congressional elections. So do large corporations, but a lot of these corporations are really owned by the big banks. They are the plutocracy (“rule by the super wealthy”) manipulating us behind the scenes.

The above are just 3 examples among many others of the lies and half-lies coming out of the mouths of our government officials.

Duke LakelandI wrote my book Divided We Are Falling But United We Can Stand! to clear up confusion in the area of politics by defining the words so we will all be on the same page, giving examples of how good people are duped into believing propaganda and how you can see the men behind the curtain who are pulling the levers.

The book is more than an exposé – it is your guide to learn how to look behind the veil.

Read this book and recommend it to others. We have an election coming up next year and we all need to be as educated as possible so that we can make the right choices in that for the future of America.

By: Rusticus, Stateless Homesteading

As individuals and Nations alike wait in anticipation for COP21 a month from now, described as the United Nations’ “legally binding and universal” update to the ever-deleterious Agenda 21, banksters at the supranational level have shown little hesitation in offering their seemingly sage opinions on how their usurious reserves will be put to use in enacting this “Global Sustainable New Deal.”

From veterans of monetary Technocracy like the IMF and World Bank to the “New Kids on the Trading Bloc” represented by the BRICS and AIIB, monetary institutions around the world are poised to receive their slice of the sustainable pie – at the expense of what little freedom and financial security the individual still retains.

Leading the charge on the Western front is none other than the Bank for International Settlements, the “central bank of central banks” as identified by Georgetown Professor Carroll Quigley in his magnum opus Tragedy and Hope. Echoing the credo of “sustainable developers” at the UN and World Bank, the BIS has seen fit to reinforce the meme that the problem of climate change cannot be tackled without complete digital serfdom in the form of an electronic, biometric global I.D.

Euphemistically entitled the “Identification for Development” (or ID4D) program by the World Bank, it represents their “unique” interpretation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals; a reading that’s as draconian as it is creative. The UN, World Bank, and BIS are calling for nothing short of a completely pervasive global surveillance grid to be implemented by no later than 2030, all under the auspices of “saving the planet.”

Of course, the BIS is also resolute in declaring the World Bank’s “important role” in fighting the phantom foe of climate change – not only in implementing the Technocratic ID4D program, but assembling the cast of private financiers to accompany the torrent of supranational capital:

From the BIS paper, "New Global Challenges and the Global Economy"

Some of these “larger private sources of capital” have also positioned themselves in advance of COP21, one example being the marriage of Eastern and Western financial juggernauts in the solar energy market. This was witnessed recently in the merger between China’s solar giant Shunfeng with American-based Suniva – owned in part by the Warburgs (Warburg-Pincus) and Goldman Sachs. These private banking elites and families of antiquity, investing in the petrol-free, carbon-capped future described as a “historic opportunity” by the International Monetary Fund, will doubtlessly be underwriting much of the “green infrastructure” loans called for by COP21.

But it’s not just Chinese solar tycoons assembling the capital and infrastructure for humanity’s (Soylent) green future; the recently birthed multilateral giants of the East, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and BRICS NDB (New Development Bank), are also all aboard the sustainable train to globalized Nirvana. In accordance with the United Nations’ assertion that the BRICS NDB is a “dream coming true” for the financing of UN-mandated sustainable development projects in developing economies, the BRICS saw fit to reinforce this notion at the first official meeting of the BRICS Environment Ministers earlier this year.

Don’t take my word for it, or the UN’s, for that matter – the BRICS are crystal clear in their position on Agenda 21:

We  reaffirm our commitment to implement the Rio Declaration, Agenda 21, the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation (JPOI), and the outcomes of the Rio+20 Conference in our respective countries, and through our cooperation within the framework of BRICS in accordance with the Rio principles, including the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities.

We acknowledge the progress made on the Millennium Development Goals in the preceding two decades and reaffirm our commitment towards accelerated implementation of the unfinished task. In this context, we look forward to the adoption of ambitious, transformative and equitable Post-2015 development agenda with Sustainable Development Goals at its core.”

BRICS Statement from the First Official Meeting of BRICS Environment Ministers in Moscow, April 22nd, 2015

These disconcerting official remarks by the BRICS on Agenda 21 stand in stark contrast with recent prognostications by Vladimir Putin to the contrary; this seeming conflict between actual policy and mere rhetoric, designed to seed cognitive dissonance within the minds of the public, is a clear example of a unique brand of propaganda developed in Russia by one Vladislav Surkov.

The alternative media, not immune to the effects of this “non-linear media warfare,” spread the story of Putin’s seeming “climate skepticism” to the Ends of the Earth without so much as a whisper about the Kremlin’s documented support of Agenda 21 as exemplified by the BRICS Summit in Moscow this April.

Put simply, the BRICS cannot simultaneously be against Agenda 21 and adherents to it.

Not to be overshadowed by the NDB, the “lean, clean, and green” (their words, not mine) AIIB are also happy to play their part in financing the latest iteration of Rio ’92. In addition to their publicly stated desire to work with the World Bank and Anglo-American controlled Asian Development Bank, some think-tanks believe the AIIB will be key in financing Pan-Asian energy infrastructure, chiefly natural gas:

In a recent paper by Grenatec, aptly titled “COP21/AIIB and the New World Order,” it is emphatically stated in no uncertain terms that the answer to  the woes posed in Al Gore’s 2006 “scare-you-shitless docu-drama” for the Far East is none other than elite bankers lining the pockets of multinational gas companies. How convenient. Those in the West needn’t worry about being left out of this Eastern development “Renaissance,” though, as the People’s Bank of China is intent on financing city-to-city Agenda 21-compliant high speed rail projects throughout the (People’s) Republic of California.

While it may be a relatively new phenomenon for Americans to be on the receiving end of the digital Panopticon and usurious infrastructure projects, the high-tech beneficiaries of Western capital in the East have long been acclimated to the world envisioned by COP21. Those living under the riches (and dictatorial autocracy) of nations like China and Singapore have had 3G phones in their pockets since the turn of the Millennium. Tracking (and taxing) of automobile usage via GPS by the State has been around just as long, as have electronic ID.

If this was the Singapore of nearly 15 years ago, it’s doubtless that the implements of COP21 like the ID4D program will be welcomed with open arms:

Looking at the success of projects like the joint Chinese-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City, the East is already making a smooth transition to Eco-Serfdom; this cashless, microchipped, carbon-credited “Wonderland” is, after all, virtually indistinguishable from the society in the video above… from 2002.

Using the centuries old threat of ecological disaster, the central planners of COP21 are resolved in holding the globe hostage; their insistence being that one cannot have the freedoms, conveniences, and benefits provided by technology without binding them by an eco-friendly Surveillance State. The infrastructure for such bewildering “green” snitch technologies, to be financed by the supranational banks of the multipolar World Order, will be solidified at COP21 this December. The Paris conference represents the most realistic opportunity for achieving the foundation of this Technocratic World Order since the failure of Copenhagen in 2009, a setback the elite would rather not see repeated.

Unfortunately, there is little we can do to stop the ink from drying on this Neomalthusian treaty, and increasingly less international impetus to do so.

Now more than ever, Free Humanity must work towards perhaps the only tactic capable of subverting the lamentations of COP21: The development of a counter-economy as vigilant and decentralized as the “Globalized Economy” is rigid and exclusive.

died of ignorance

The Lobotomy of the American Mind

By TLB Contributor: Ken LaRive

To understand what is going on in this world is no easy task. Lies are projected into our minds from every side, and this constant barrage of deceit envelops and taints not only our perception of reality, but enslaves us collectively into a state of denial. Yes, denial, most likely the best mechanism we can use to keep our sanity as human beings, but all of us, seemingly united in what can only be called human nature, just hates to be played the fool… and knowing this, that there is a point where some will say “enough is enough,” solace and hope can still give us a worthy standard of purpose…

A playground bully stealing our lunch money as a kid, feels the same as a government stealing your future as an adult, and most have been taught to turn a blind eye. It is justified, we are told, by a fight or flight response that tells us to choose our battles, even as we are swept along by them. We have learned to turn a blind eye to the strong currents under the surface of our civilization, undermining the very framework of our Republic… Ignorance is bliss, I’ve heard said laughingly, and we are indeed what we think we are as a product of our environment… Sure, it’s easy to say these idioms, and with feeling too, like they are justifications in their own right. Justifications for the blind faith that not only motivates us, but keeps us safe to fight another day. But the day of reckoning does come, as is witnessed all around the world… when people finally have enough.


Sometimes we think we are just too close to this life to see what it’s really all about. We are so busy, so caught up with our tangled lives that we fail to grasp but a portion of the total picture… Memory is fuzzy, history is distorted by bias, and time just presses on… It’s unsettling when a few pieces of the puzzle emerges after the fact, and we can glimpse, even for just a moment, that our reality has been carefully fed to us, orchestrated, manipulated, influenced, and truth withheld from us with the inflection that we are mindless fools…

Does our life still have meaning if our reasoning rational is found to be based on a lie? Should we feel betrayed if our thoughts were discovered to be manipulated? Could we ever truly trust authority again, knowing we have been used without our knowledge? Are we considered just working fools, beasts of burden, where the forces of power strive to control our thoughts, our behaviors, and what we hold sacred as a nation is treated as if it is all a farce?

Is there such a thing as a noble cause? And is there any cause worth dying for?

It is human nature to try and justify the workings of the world, and yes, to manipulate them with our will. We would like to believe that a young man who goes to war these days has a justified reason to do so. He is placing his life in real danger for a real ideal, isn’t he? Shouldn’t he be there because he sees a noble cause? Shouldn’t an ideal come first? And shouldn’t it be strong enough to rouse him, by the passion of honesty and truth, without being manipulated by a lie, or forced by a draft? Shouldn’t war, even a cold war, have a true reason, and shouldn’t that reason be based on a justifiable accolade? How can we uphold our actions as a nation when we aren’t informed as to why we take action it in the first place? Would we consent to go to war for the profit of an international war machine? I don’t think so… and, without a doubt, that is the reason for the lie!

The light of truth, after the fact…

Ronald Reaganis said to be one of the 100 most influential people in the 20th century. As he occupied the White House in the mid-1980’s he accentuated two things that I will attempt to explain here. One, as an ultra-conservative, he implemented a free enterprise fiscal policy, including sweeping tax cuts and deregulation of theoil industry, and two, swore to tip the balance of the cold war

Mr. Reagan succeeded on both counts, but there was a price to pay, and we Americans in the south, unknowingly, paid for it dearly…

Our southern economy did not entirely survive the 1980’s, we had to start mostly from scratch, as seven of our 10 local banks went belly up… I left three companies, from mergers to bankruptcy, and Louisiana and Texas was devastated. I read the paper every day for information and hope, but oil prices continued to plummet, and good hard-working people lost everything in an avalanche of ruined dreams and hopes. No one I knew could tell me why…

I did what I had to do to survive, as so many oil-field workers did: to keep food on the table. Our wives and children helped pull us through, combining salaries to get by. In 1986 it was so bad that I couldn’t even find a house to paint. I left the states to work in a hotel for two years, displacing my family and leaving my friends behind. I couldn’t sell my house in Crowley for 1/5th of what I still owed on it! I had a bumper sticker that read:”Last one out turn out the lights.”

I blamed myself. If I could have been smarter, stronger, or positioned myself better… I thought that the new environmental liberals had fined the oil companies out of existence. I thought it was a normal correction, but I couldn’t figure out for what! I was wrong. I was too close to it to understand, we all were, and information, the truth, wasn’t published.

Here are a couple of points to ponder…

* Congress did away with tax benefits previously given to oil and gas drilling.
* There were massive and unprecedented tax reforms, by the White House.
* There was an undeniable link between the oil industry, the Saudis, and the eventual collapse of the USSR.

With no more investment dollars, the oil industry dried up to a burned out shell, and the Soviet Union took it full on the chin. It was a “geopolitical blow” according to the book: Victory: The Reagan Administration’s Secret Strategy that hastened the Collapse of the Soviet Union, by Peter Schweizer.

By the time Mr. Reagan was reelected in 1984, his secret economic strategies were taking its toll against Russia. Credit from the west was gone, and export licenses for technology were denied. Both liquid currency and traded Western technology slowed to a trickle. The Siberian pipeline, expected to bring in hard currency for Russia, was years behind schedule. The Reagan administration frustrated efforts further by a concerted technical disinformation program against them.

These catalysts were in place. We wanted lower international oil prices largely for the benefit of the American economy.” Said White House counsel Edwin Meese. “The fact that it meant trouble for Moscow was icing on the cake.” To pull this off, they solicited the support of the world’s largest producer of oil, Saudi Arabia… and as we poured over the paper for any sign of reason and hope, nothing of this was mentioned … I may have believed Mr. Meese’s words having a morning cup of coffee with other unemployed Mud Men… but not now. His words were lies. It was easy for the Saudis to do. It only cost about $1.50 back then to produce a barrel of oil, and they could still maintain a healthy profit at a lower market price. Intelligence has found since then, according to Mr. Schweizer, that the USSR had an annual loss of $13 billion from this oil price drop.

The end came when the Soviets tried to borrow more from the west. With lack of funds, projects died. Disinformation made it weak, furthered by the devaluation of the dollar …but it was oil prices that finally shut the doors. The country collapsed in 1991… as they were fighting their Vietnam in Afghanistan, and as our CIA operative Osama ben Laden harassed Russian boys with US made weapons, trying to protect their National pipe line, our Military Industrial Complex made billions selling arms. It wasn’t mentioned in our National Newspapers that we wanted control of the poppy fields that supply Europe with high grade opium for distribution around the world… And our solders are there guarding those crop even today…It was opium that killed two of my shipmates in the Hong Kong Hilton hotel in 1970, the only men to die in that specific. West Pacific Vietnam experience on the USS Kitty Hawk… another profitable venture for the arms trade… and what was it for? Democracy? We actually lost the war? But not everyone lost, though over 80 thousand came back in body bags, about the number of people, for a perspective, now living in Lafayette… the international arms industry profited very well, and new tax structures took industry from our shores to theirs… Korea, Japan, Cambodia, Vietnam, China…

What National Security?

So what are the almighty powers of our monstrous centralized government doing with our lives now? Can we figure out the strategy they seem to set for reasons known only to them? Insider trading is lucrative, but unless you have a crystal ball everything you do is based on a speculation… Do you think the international banks and the Federal Reserve makes decisions based on speculation? Oh, did I say that? That would mean they have a common interest, and it is taboo to use the word conspiracy.

Is the lack of information considered a lie? Are we talking about national security here, or is it purely about big bucks, or possibly just the power to control the masses? Of course, we must realize too, that a certain amount of secrecy is necessary for security reasons. So trust is an issue also. We have to trust that the people in power in America have our Liberty and welfare as the primary goal, and not a selfishly motivated concern, like a black bottom line for their friends…. It is so easy to do when you are totally exhausted working overtime to pay the interest on your credit cards… Fifty percent of us are either too tied up to pay attention, or too tired to care, and that is a speculative guess too….

Mr. Reagan, bless his heart, knew these answers well, because he and his government created the questions… and they are lost now to a man who sat and dreamed by his sunny window with Alzheimer disease… for years before his death. What was lost to him, to all of us, is beyond measure… It seems that what we are is what we are told to be, and by that process our freedom to rationally choose is taken away, and our American Dreams will remain just that… Sure, our founders told us that we the people must pull the reigns of our government, but looking at the world, and our influence on it, that could not be further from the truth… and that, I am sorry to say, is the real truth of our reality.

I’ll end this with a couple of questions:

Do you think the USSR, that morphed into the Soviet Union, doesn’t remember those times?

Do you think the KGB no longer exists?

Do you think that forgiveness is in their heart, as they now consider themselves an Orthodox Christian nation?

“The humblest citizen of all the land, when clad in the armor of a righteous cause, is stronger than all the hosts of Error.”-William Jennings Bryan in a speech at National Democratic Convention (1896).

“Public office is a public trust.-William C. Hudson, a newspaper man, produced this slogan from various speeches of Grover Cleveland during his first campaign for Presidency (1884).

“Let us have faith that right makes might; and in that faith let us to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.”-Abraham Lincoln

The answer to this dilemma of unconstitutional government and runaway spending is simple: restore a burning conviction in the hearts and minds of people that freedom works and government largesse is a fraud. When the people once again regain their confidence in the benefits of Liberty– and demand it from their elected leaders- Congress will act appropriately”. Part of Congressman Dr. Ron Paul’s introduction in his United States Constitution handout, 2004.

Author’s note: I read the life of Ron Paul in a little essay by Mrs. Ron Paul called The American Dream. His life is an open book. It is no wonder he was so hated by those who had to seal Obama’s life’s work from view… from school transcripts to police records, by a court order. I have to take pause to ponder the quality of the American mind… with a lobotomy of truth…

“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second President – 1797 – 1801

Now is the first day of a new beginning.

Each one – Reach One- Each One – Teach One




Let Your Life Be a Friction to Stop the Machine

Nightmare and insanity are akin: mysterious and involuntary states that skew and distort objective reality. One wakens from nightmare; from insanity there is no awakening.

Whether Americans live in the one state or the other is the paramount question of this era.

For two hundred years Americans have been indoctrinated with a mythology created, imposed and sustained by a manipulating cabal: the financial elite that built its absolute control on the muscle and blood, good will, ignorance and credulity, of its citizenry.

America began with the invasion of a populated continent and the genocide of its native people. Once solidly established, it grafted enslavement of another race onto that base.

With those two pillars of state firmly in place it declared itself an independent nation in a document that nobly proclaimed the equality of all mankind.

In that act of monumental hypocrisy America’s myth had its beginning.

* * *

A Constitution was written that came to be regarded as American Holy Writ. Its central purposes were to defend private property and suppress mass democracy. It has fulfilled both those mandates beyond the wildest dreams of its creators.

Once the existing oligarchy was secure in law and native people largely exterminated, the ruling class increased its wealth and power fantastically in the 19th century, using the government as its enabler, exploiting to the limit the device of chartered corporations.

With its phenomenal money power, the financial elite began to use the military to expand its sway beyond the continent. Regions, territories, islands, and whole countries were annexed, invaded, and possessed outright, their peoples crushed, suppressed, and ruled.

Because ordinary Americans, like any people, need to believe that whatever the ruling elite undertakes in their nation’s name must be essentially benevolent, noble in purpose and justified in fact, the myth had to be radically modified for imperial expansion.

The foundational story was that Americans had come to a howling wilderness teeming with godless savages and, through invincible strength of character and purity of purpose, had tamed the land and honorably earned the right to possess their bountiful home.

In the era of extra-territorial expansion that version was polished to justify and ennoble imperialism. The new corollary was that America could not ignore colonialist brutality but was obliged, by the Manifest Destiny that led us to civilize our own continent, to carry our mission into barbaric darkness wherever tyranny created abuse and suffering.

A national myth that absolutely binds the loyalty of a people to its government must be a subtle and powerful elixir that elevates and aggrandizes that people’s self-regard. National policy will then appear to be an extension of its superior citizenry’s inchoate will, and the basis for a justified arrogance toward the lesser world.

The simple, powerful myth of America’s altruistic and heroic benevolence, shaped and maintained by the financial/political power elite, infused Americans with a deep and outrageously hubristic sense of racial superiority that, mobilized behind various imperial enterprises, has given all such adventures the character of a quasi-religious crusade. In this way insatiable imperialism acquires the apparent moral perfection of a syllogism.

* * *

With WWII, the world was reconfigured. American Capitalism emerged supreme from the horror that had virtually wrecked its capitalist partners. The Soviet Union, though, having absorbed by far the greatest devastation from Nazi Germany, had astonishingly risen above its ruin to become the leading challenger to America as a world power.

This challenge was not competitive, it was systemic: Soviet Communism was a direct threat to American hegemony in that it categorically refuted the philosophical basis of Predatory Capitalism. Grounded in Marx and Lenin, it attacked Capitalism’s inherent evils, monstrous inequities and flagrant injustices that, exacerbated by speculation, exploitation and fraud, would destroy it. And it promoted world revolution to that end.

This face-off of giants in the Cold War necessitated further refinement of the American myth. Now, instead of simply intervening in situations where despotism or tyranny required America to forcefully implant our just and ethical democracy, America had to become the shield and bulwark of the sacred capitalist system in which “free enterprise” was magically and increasingly identified with democracy and equally to be defended.

This version prevailed through many surrogate confrontations around the globe in the era of Mutually Assured Destruction and survived even the debacle of Vietnam, lasting until the collapse of the Soviet Union, as the propaganda stream became ever more intense and pervasive. On radio and television Americans were subjected to an unrelenting barrage of hyper-patriotism in which American moral superiority was a given, and America’s self-touted courage, generosity and decency were its unchallengeable proofs.

The implosion of the Soviet Union left America, in its own terminology, the “Sole Superpower in a Unipolar World”. This, however, did not result in diminution of the myth. The practical effect of having no doomsday enemy–China couldn’t plausibly be cast in that role then–was to supercharge it by increasing its element of pure, hubristic ego. America was no longer just called upon to defend the “Free World” from monstrous heresy; it was now, by virtue of its universally acknowledged, beatific “exceptionalism”, required to oversee and police it in the interests, and for the benefit, of lesser nations.

* * *

“Power corrupts”, said Lord Mahan, “and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

When the only rival and counterweight to American power disintegrated there was a sense within the American power elite that the opportunity existed, for the first time in history, for one country to absolutely dominate and effectively control the entire world.

This consensus was expressed in a policy statement composed by a cadre of major right-wing political players representing massive corporate capitalist interests called the Project for a New American Century. This triumphalist manifesto laid out a plan for absolute American access and control of essential resources and raw materials worldwide, to be guaranteed by the military which would enforce Full Spectrum Dominance.

The American Myth, which had seemed to have lost momentum and its animating principle in the totally unexpected so-called Cold War “victory”, was now re-energized with a less defensive and reactive essence, and given the glowing radiance and patina of a true and, for the first time, self-professed and articulated, imperial mission.

The attack on the Towers, an unimaginable provocation, was the trigger mechanism for the explosive launch of the effort to impose that imperial model in practice on the world.

* * *

It has been without question the most spectacular failure in the history of American misadventure. After a decade marked by the waste of trillions of dollars and tens of thousands of American lives, the stunning bankruptcy of our internally burglarized nation, and a consequent recession more fundamentally damaging than the Great One, Imperial America has nothing to show for the botched folly of its arrogant overreach but unequivocal disasters in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, with no end of madness in sight.

An impartial observer would have to say that the hypnotic hold of the American Myth on the loyalty of the people has led only to disgrace and disaster, and set a direct course to inevitable imperial decline and ruin. That would be inarguable on any rational basis, but it entirely mistakes the motive for, and the purpose of, the myth. The American Myth was never intended to serve the interests either of our country or of our people: it was created solely to buttress, shield, and exalt the ruling financial class. It has done that with astonishing and unbroken success that staggers the imagination from our earliest days.

The massive looting of Iraq/Afghanistan/Pakistan war funding to enrich the Corporate Tyranny—for that is what it has become—is on an unique scale of its own, without anything remotely comparable to its flagrant obscenity in the whole long history of war.

Neither the Pentagon nor any branch of the U.S. government can give any accounting whatever of the many billions of tax-generated dollars that have vanished, evaporated. There is no doubt but that beyond the outrageously inflated, no-bid contracts handed to giant corporate favorites with their preposterous guaranteed profits, much of the money was simply stolen in bulk by, through, or in spite of the military, and distributed among thieves and accomplices, some of it on huge pallets… for convenience, presumably.

* * *

While this wholesale robbery was going on under the oversight of the military abroad, the Corporate Tyranny had evolved a whole set of impenetrably complex devices for the generation of money without any economically productive source or result at home.

The sole driving force and purpose of Capitalism is the realization of profit. According to that calculus, reducing production costs increases profit margin. This leads to the obvious conclusion that as production costs near zero, profit is maximized.
There is no provision for social good in Capitalist theory. Corporations, created to optimize business opportunity through efficient specialization, were originally required to operate for public benefit but that provision was quickly finessed and forgotten.

American law courts have always favored corporate concentrations of wealth since they, like the Congress, exist to serve the moneyed interests. The American Myth was created to provide cover for the financial oligarchy to exploit the country and the citizenry, and the judiciary has consistently cooperated in ruling for corporations against the people.

Indeed, without ever considering the question in law, the Supreme Court long ago endowed corporations with “personhood”, that is with all rights of human beings under our Constitution. The way this travesty occurred–the slipshod by-product of an obliquely related case–shows that the court preferred to incorporate this perversion of the plain intent of the 14th amendment as an unexamined assumption rather than risk an eventual test which would unquestionably have created violent public outrage.

Given the collusion of Congress and the courts in securing legal invulnerability for the Corporate Tyranny and the principle that the only duty of corporations is maximization of profit, it was not surprising that megabanks, huge brokerage houses, giant insurance conglomerates, gilded hedge funds and the credit agencies pretending to certify their work, all engaged in massive and systemic fraud and deception for just that purpose. The result was the crash of ’08, the recession, and the stunning and unprecedented rescue and bailout of the biggest banks, investment houses, and insurance and credit conglomerates with taxpayer dollars. So much for the hallowed Invisible Hand of the Free Market…

* * *

The last decades have seen two related megatrends in American geopolitical mechanics, both with dire effects on the power of the American Myth. First, what belief the world at large had in it has been shattered by a catastrophic series of imbecile and irretrievable military failures and disasters, which has caused erosion of its efficacy at home. Second, in response to this, the State has made increasingly crude efforts to boost the Myth’s waning power by the imposition of totalitarian methods of surveillance, intimidation and coercion on the American people to a degree unprecedented in scope and scale.

The whole clanking, medieval apparatus of Homeland Security that has sprouted like an enormous poison fungus since 9/11 with its brutal police state mindset; the odious Patriot Act with its flagrant subversions of the Bill of Rights; the endless, fantasy-based terror-peddling of the prostitute corporate media with its clowns and harpies churning irrational fear and anger in the uninformed: all this grim, repressive endeavor is a concerted attempt to distract Americans from the real causes of their injury, abuse, and oppression.

And yet, even with the American Myth now totally and irreparably blown full of holes and exposed demonstrably for the tissue of lies, deceptions and frauds that it has always been, it somehow keeps its phenomenal hold on the great mass of the American people. The tragic reality is that, for the majority, their own identities have been so deeply and thoroughly infused with the myth that to disbelieve it is to disbelieve in themselves.

* * *

So the American Myth is dead, and yet it lives on in its deadness, horribly masking our crapshot economy, our bankrupt debtors prison of a society, our Ghost Dance charade of kabuki democracy, while typhoons of impending social, economic and ecological disaster build their enormous, lightning-charged thunderheads above the dark future before us.

And what is it that the dead Myth still imperfectly obscures for Americans? What is outside and beyond the opaque wall of faltering, failing dishonesty and deception? What is the horror that the shoddy, tattered Myth has so long and so effectively concealed?

It is the world that has suffered unrelieved exploitation by the violence of our imperialist mania. It is the many wrecked and pillaged economies financially looted by our imposed predatory capitalist austerity regimes. It is the teeming hundreds of millions of starved, deprived and dying children sacrificed to Wall Street commodities gaming. It is the multitudes of humble, innocent, ignorant people, barely surviving in absolutist and dictatorial regimes propped up in their barbaric cruelty by our military while our banks siphon off the profits left after arming their brutal police and armies and bribing their ruling Kings, Sheikhs or Generals. It is the millions of dead and maimed in the raped populations of simple tribal people whom our indiscriminately murderous juggernaut has left in its bloody wake in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. It is the appalling legacy of hate and repulsion, disdain and fear, that America has earned with its appalling hegemonist villainy in every corner of the world.

And at home, what is it we Americans have been so complicit in hiding from ourselves in our devotion to the perverse legend that has come to inhabit our souls like a succubus?

It is the millions of us with no work and no hope in middle age whose jobs and homes have been devoured by the heartless fraud machine of Wall Street. It is the trashed and demolished weedlots of our major cities eroding in crumbling, fire-gutted ruin. It is the many towns and cities with industries shut down and factories deserted or dismantled and shipped overseas. It is our decaying, disintegrating public schools, our bankrupt states and counties, our overtaxed, antiquated public transportation systems, our obsolete, dissolving infrastructure, our bloated, irrational prisons complex, our punishing and inadequate health care disaster, and over it all, the repressive mechanism of our police state, armed and empowered, ready for use against the American people themselves.

* * *

This is where we are. The great question now is whether we as a nation can awaken from this long historic nightmare and face the terrifying and exhilarating prospect of living in the full light of reality without the false props and dishonest constructs of a hoodwinked, herded and dishonored people or, whether we have internalized the falsity and disease to such an extent that it has become an organic, overmastering form of insanity?

In 1846, Henry David Thoreau, offended to his soul by the injustice of the American government’s invasion of Mexico, protested it and went to jail for his convictions. Later, in his essay On Civil Disobedience, he said this:

“If injustice is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine.”

To attempt to break the hold of the American Myth will be a titanic, daunting challenge. To even begin to openly rebel against the might of the National Security State will require the courage to face much more than official disapproval and denunciation. Imperial America will not respond to even the most peaceful and orderly protest with anything less than hard police repression and the level of punishment will rise in relation to the scope and seriousness of the action undertaken.

Small protests will have no effect and will be meaningless. Organized mass events, when they occur, will draw the whole fiercely and brutally motivated National Security State apparatus down upon themselves. Americans, excepting those of our underclass who have felt it, have no experience with violent police or military repression. Those who commit peaceful civil disobedience, a first and innocent tactic of serious protest, will swiftly find out to their cost how it works. In a National Security State that has excised and eradicated all defensive laws and regulations intended to prevent abuse of the public, whatever the State does is legal. To such a pass have we in America come as a result of our long historic indoctrination in serving our financial elite, our Ruling Class.

To achieve any redemption for Americans, to make possible any more just, humane and life-honoring society, will require complete abandonment of the system of Predatory Capitalism. If offers no prospect of reform or improvement and we have all been witness to the idiocy of the so-called “democratic process” in action for generations now.

America is nearing the greatest crisis point in its history and the terrific cataclysm, when it happens, will determine the future our country is to have. If we cannot, in dominating numbers, rise to reject the heartless, mindless, soulless machine of Imperial Predatory Capitalism, we will be condemned to a fascistic command and control horror in which human beings are mere possessions of the State, units of production or service, and then perhaps not even that, as excess population in that brave, new world nay be eliminated.

That end is not inevitable. We are not lost. We are not even defeated because to this moment we have not engaged. We have not honored our responsibility as human beings. We have not risen to defend our humanity. We have let ourselves be ruled.

All around the world the thunder of vast and immeasurable discontent can be heard and felt. In Egypt and Spain, Jordan and Greece, Iraq and Sudan, Afghanistan and Ireland, Latin America, the Far East and Africa, the legitimate anger of humanity is expressing itself against the dead and killing hand of Predatory Capitalism and its agencies of violence. And here, in America, so long trapped and encapsulated, frozen like a fly in amber in a false religion of state idolatry, the anger is deep, widespread, and growing.

It is up to those who know and care to lead. As Thomas Paine said, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” Nothing is guaranteed us. That can’t matter. We cannot be concerned with odds or outcomes. We cannot let the Machine of Injustice grind on. We must oppose it with all the moral force we own. We must act with quiet courage to confront a vicious tyrannical system that is destroying the earth, its life, and its people. We must put our lives on the line to oppose it.

The Nightmare Machine of rapacious exploitation has overthrown humanity’s decency and reason and its bloody inhuman treason flourishes over us. This must be ended.

Let your life be a friction now to stop the Machine.

Introduction by Mary Carmel (TLB)


It is well overdue, time for people to get involved in holding not only the police, but our judicial system, accountable for the crimes of the ‘police state’ that has been set loose upon us! If more people complain and step up to the plate, it makes all of us safer. Many Americans feel a bit helpless, and do not quite know what to do. That is why we are fighting in numbers, please join us to stop the lawlessness in the courts and elsewhere. You can start by visiting, and becoming a member. If there is no justice in the courts, only the people can restore it. MC




When the police stop you, they have the authority. We are taught to obey their commands. When officers say to show your driver’s license and registration, you hand them over. They say to put your hands where they can see them, you hold the steering wheel. And we’re taught that we can rely on police officers to help us when we need assistance – they’re the ones you’re supposed to call when you need help. But sometimes, officers seriously abuse that trust and authority. One awful abuse of police power is sexual assault by police officers.

The AP just released a report about sexual assault by police officers after studying records from 41 states, spanning from 2009 through 2014. The AP looked at nearly 9,000 cases in which officers lost their law enforcement certification and found that about 1,000 of those officers were decertified for committing: sexual assault, sex crimes like possessing child pornography, or misconduct that ranged from propositioning citizens to on-duty sexual intercourse. Although the AP study is informative, it acknowledges that it vastly undercounts the actual number of police officers committing sexual misconduct while on duty.  This is because many states simply fail to keep sufficient track of dirty officers, while others lack a decertification process.

Our law firm, Loevy & Loevy, has represented many brave people who had the courage to speak out about sexual assault by police officers. These cases give you a sense of the breadth of the problem, so I’ll tell you about a few of them:

* A woman accepted a ride home from two Chicago police officers, who were both in uniform and driving a marked police car. The woman reluctantly allowed the officers to escort her into her apartment. One officer raped her, while the other took photos on his cell phone.

* A young woman from Milwaukee called 911 to report someone throwing a brick through her window, and one of the responding officers raped her. When she ran screaming from the house that she had been raped, she was falsely charged with assaulting an officer. Although the local district attorney declined to prosecute the cop, after a federal investigation, the officer was tried and convicted.

* A young woman in Nebraska was pressured into performing oral sex on the officer after he found marijuana in her boyfriend’s car. The officer threatened her with arrest and criminal charges if she did not obey his commands. When questioned about the incident, the officer lied and claimed he was elsewhere, but the GPS system in his cruiser revealed the lie.

* A teenage boy was brutally sodomized by a police officer during what was supposed to be a search for drugs. Medical records supported the boy’s claim, and a jury found in his favor.

Sexual misconduct by police is prevalent, as demonstrated in the AP report.  But, as is often the case with sexual assault, these horrible offenses are frequently swept under the rug. There is no consistent system for tracking sexual assault by police officers, so rapist-cops can sometimes just job hop to continue their violent abuse of power.

In at least a half dozen states – including California, New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts – police officers are not decertified when they commit sexual misconduct. In other words, they might be fired for coercing sexual favors from a suspect, but they remain certified police officers who can simply look for a job on another police force.

And they are often fired using euphemisms like “conduct unbecoming an officer,” so their sexual misconduct is never tallied or counted. In about twenty states, officers are only decertified after a criminal conviction, which is extremely rare. So, most of the time, the cop is permitted to just quietly resign due to sexual misconduct, and he remains certified to seek a law enforcement job elsewhere.

Sexual assault by police officers is a serious issue crying out for solutions. Starting with the most obvious, police officers should have license requirements and be banned from licensure for certain type of prior misconduct, like other professionals in positions of public trust such as doctors and teachers. Until then, all police departments should be required to participate in a national decertification registry to track officers who are decertified and the reason for the decertification.

It is time for police departments to abandon complicit codes of silence about police misconduct. The fact that many refuse to do so regarding such an obvious abuse of police power speaks volumes about the need to reform police departments at all levels.

Obama Attacks Guns, He NEVER Saw THIS Coming!

By: Katie McGuire

Sometimes you really have to wonder if Mr. President is taking stupid pills or something. Every time there is violence in – well, anywhere – he and his cronies are singing the praises of gun control.

Let’s take a page from the liberal media for a moment and ignore common sense. The President makes a POINT calling for gun control after almost every major mass shooting incident, to state the need for greater nationwide gun control measures. He did so perhaps most forcefully the night of the Oregon campus shooting, which took place on October 1.

“[T]his is something we should politicize,” the president said adding, “This is a political choice that we make to allow this to happen every few months in America.”

Obama pointed to Australia, as an example the United States should follow. That nation adopted strict gun control laws in the 1990s, which resulted in over 600,000 firearms being confiscated from its citizens.


That sounds like America to me.

Here’s the thing Barack and his buddies didn’t bet on: They, and their cries for ‘gun control’ have done nothing but boost sales DRAMATICALLY for firearms.

Currently, anyone who seeks to buy a firearm from a licensed gun dealer must undergo a background check. However, individuals who sell, trade or gift firearms to each other privately are not required to perform a check. The majority of weapons are sold through licensed dealers. Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have called for so-called “universal background checks” to require private transfers be covered, undoubtedly with criminal liability for those who fail to do so.

The National Rifle Association opposes universal background checks because the move would necessitate a national gun registry of all firearms violating Americans’ right to privacy and infringe on their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre argues that “All around the world, registration has led to confiscation: Australia, Canada, Bermuda, Cuba, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Ireland. The list goes on.”

Meanwhile, I’ll be over here like this:
