“For in reason, all government, without the consent of the governed, is the very definition of slavery.” — Jonathan Swift

“Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom. The subjection of individuals will increase amongst democratic nations, not only in the same proportion as their equality, but in the same proportion as their ignorance.” — Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

By: Ron Ewart

Oh how simple it was to subjugate the American people.  All it took was for Americans to think that their government was honest and trustworthy and would not break their solemn oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help them God.  But the cold, hard truth is, a government not held to that oath by the Consent of the Governed, is a government that will seek, by any means, absolute power.  We have 5,000 years of human history to prove that a government, left to its own resources, will, in the end, completely subjugate all who fall under its reign, unless the people surround government’s power with significant limits.

The weapon of choice for the American federal government has been the passing of laws in open defiance of the Constitutional limits placed upon government.  The mechanics of their weapon of choice was using our own fear, compassion and guilt against us; fear over government manufactured crises; irrational compassion that we must attend to the needs of the poor and infirmed, even though there is no constitutional mandate to do so, and our own guilt to get us to comply with government demands.  Their means of propagating their method of subjugation was by propaganda, hype, distortion and outright lies.  It still goes on today with a vengeance.  Government is out of control.

But there was one more weapon in their arsenal.  They bought us off with our own money, such that just about every segment of the American society is taking a handout from their government.  A handout from government is virtually the same as handcuffs on a criminal, because a handout comes with strings.  Further, a man taking a handout is not likely to “bite” the hand that feeds him and those in government are acutely aware of that fact.

Once-free Americans have been lined up and conquered without a shot being fired, all because they assumed that government was honorable, honest and trustworthy.  Any government is only as honorable, honest and trust worthy for as long as the people hold them in check.

So now we stand at a crossroads, not un-similar to the crossroads presented to the people of the original 13 Colonies in 1776.  The difference is, we have a blueprint for freedom in place to hold government in check ….. a blueprint that came at a significant cost to not only the framers and those that fought and died to establish freedom 234 years ago, but to all those who gave their lives since then to preserve that blueprint.  That blueprint is the U. S. Constitution, but that blueprint is only as good as the resolve of the people to mandate that their government operate within that blueprint and stay within its limits.  For the last 100 years or more, government has strayed far from its limits.

That blueprint stated that all men are created equal and that all men are endowed with certain unalienable rights and those rights are natural rights, as a gift from our creator.  As such, those natural rights cannot be whisked away at the whim of some tyrannical government.  With that said however, a natural right, undefended, is a lost right.

Comes the question, be you sovereign with all natural rights afforded to you, or be you slave.  If you choose not to defend your natural rights, then by definition and action, you are a slave.

Although you may think that you are safe inside your home and the bubble that is your world, you are anything but safe when a government, drunk with power, is allowed to roam freely through your life.  The monster is at the door.  It is time to declare, be you sovereign, or be you slave.  If you choose comfort and security in place of liberty, you choose enslavement.  If you choose freedom, because of the inattention of most Americans that have preceded you, the job before you to preserve freedom is a daunting one and is not for the faint at heart.  Summon your courage and confront the monster at the door.  If you do not, the monster owns you.

Make a “Declaration of Individual Sovereignty” and then convey that Declaration, with a loud voice and in no uncertain terms, to those who think they rule you.  Let us return to a time when government fears the people, and not the other way around.

“For when government fears the people, there is liberty.  When the people fear the government, there is slavery.”  Thomas Jefferson

voluntarily-chipping-yourselfThe phenomenon of people voluntarily chipping themselves


Is a stark and scary reminder of how the seduction of technology – of ease, of convenience – could well lead us down the path of total enslavement. While it is understandable to want to make your life easier by replacing manual labor jobs with machines, or replacing heavier items like books, keys and wallets with lighter electronic items, the vast majority of the population is utterly ignorant of the incredible danger posed by allowing these electronic devices into our lives – and into our bodies – and under our skin. There is very little debate about the staggering implications of implanting people with RFID chips (Radio Frequency Identification Chips), given the fact they can destroy your health and could be remote controlled to wipe out privacy and free will; instead some are lining up and voluntarily chipping themselves like animals, and more and more people are following.

Are People Really Voluntarily Chipping Themselves?

If you think I’m exaggerating and overstating the case, have you heard about biohackers? Take the example of biohacker Amal Graafstra, who proudly spoke at a TED talk in 2013 about he willingly injected himself with a RFID chip to be able to open his door, log into his computer, get into his safe and turn on his smartphone; he mentions that “people are signing up and getting chipped across the globe, from Russia to China to Australia …”. There are now many groups of biohackers voluntarily chipping themselves, including Neil Harbisson, a colorblind artist who in 2003 had an “eyeborg” antenna implanted directly into his skull.

Oh That’s Right: Voluntarily Chipping Yourself is Not Enslavement – it’s “Body Augmentation”

Of course, surrounding the whole transhumanism movement is a whole set of Orwellian double-speak marketing language, to sell the technology and make it look cool. People voluntarily chipping themselves (and advocating that also others do it) look at implantable chips as “body augmentation“. What they fail to realize is that it’s not enhancing or augmenting the body to inject it with a synthetic, artificial electronic silicone device – a piece of plastic and metal which is completely foreign to the body. Common sense dictates that any injected microchip will irritate the body, send out artificial radiation into your bloodstream, cause inflammation and disease, and potentially even lead to serious illness. No matter what technological prowess you gain from the chip, is it worth sacrificing your health for it (without even getting to the threat to your privacy and freedom)?

It’s not augmentation: it’s degradation. It’s mutilation of the beautiful human body.

Trying to merge yourself with a machine is not evolution: it’s devolution.

Voluntarily Chipping Yourself is Based on an Ignorance of your Own Perfection

I would suggest that, psychologically speaking, what is motivating these individuals who are voluntarily chipping themselves is that they are trying to fill a void in their lives. It springs from a lack of self-love. Now, we can all do better at self-love, but when I see people destroying their body by injecting artificial devices inside of it, it smacks of a serious lack of self-love, and an ignorance of how perfect they are already, and how perfect the human body is already. It shows a lack of appreciation for the incredible miracle of the human body, and a lack of understanding for the fact that we all have hidden psychic talents (telepathy, telekinesis, etc.) that could be activated to achieve our higher potential without the need for outside technology.

That lack of self-understanding and self-love, of course, fits right into the hands of the Global Controllers, who deliberately promote messages of ignorance, worthlessness and fear to be better able to manipulate the masses.

A Completely Microchipped Human Population: Endgame of the New World Order

Many researchers such as David Icke (and also Aaron Russo in this video recall of what he was told by Nick Rockefeller) have been warning about how the human microchipping agenda constitutes the ultimate goal of the New World Order global conspiracy. The reason for this is that the mentality of the entities running the world is that of a heartless, soulless, coldly calculating hive-mind. It is very much like the Borg of Star Trek; a collective computerized entity that cannot comprehend love, cannot handle individuality and cannot tolerate events or people occurring or living outside of its control. For such a mentality, it is easy to see how microchips are the perfect solution to its psychopathic and megalomaniacal desire to control everything and everyone.

Humanity desperately needs to perceive the very real danger that if we allow ourselves to be chipped, there will be no turning back. Once you have a chip in you, you have taken the first step down the dark path of transhumanism – the merging of man with machine. Sure, the first chips may not be able to be remotely controlled via GPS; but it’s only a matter of time. You can be sure that as technology develops, the chips will become smaller, faster and capable of more and more things, including one day feeding thoughts directly into your brain. That’s mind control – and if you have a chip stuck inside of you, there will be no way to turn it off.

Beware of the seduction of technology, and those “useful idiots” who unknowingly serve the system by voluntarily chipping themselves.

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

The plan is called America 2050 and the concept is based upon the creation of megacities. In order for the megacities concept, which is well underway, to come to fruition, American suburbs and rural areas must be completely depopulated. This process is underway and the Obama administration is accelerating the process.

This will come as a shock to many reading this article because they did not learn of these events from FOX or CNN. However, in actuality, the process of moving the United States towards a complete Agenda 21 style of total urbanization has already commenced and it began nearly 20 years ago. In the case of total urbanization, the United States is in the process of dividing the country into 11 large densely populated urban centers. The concept, which will be the subject of a future investigation, will  explore this “end-game” strategy of the globalists which will depopulate the America’s suburbs and and rural areas. The concept is called megacities and the framework was laid in 1994,  when the United States became official participants in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which was a ‘liberalized’ trade agreement between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. Under NAFTA, farmers’ income in all three countries has plummeted and millions of small farmers have lost their land, while agribusiness corporations (i.e. large government subsidized corporate farms) have reaped huge profits. Subsequently, NAFTA has had three dramatic effects on farmers in North America and all three effects further the cause dense urbanization as outlined in Agenda 21 documents.

NAFTA Was the Beginning of Rural Flight In the United States

The first notable effect of NAFTA is that it it is credited with greatly accelerating illegal immigration and almost immediately bankrupted over three million farmers in northern Mexico and this group became the vanguard of millions of Mexicans illegally entering the US in search for subsistence work of any type.

The second dramatic impact of NAFTA lies in the fact that it has had catastrophic consequences for U.S. farmers as a record number of small farmers have lost their farms and have gone through foreclosure while the government subsidized corporate farms have thrived. Since NAFTAthe average annual growth of the US trade deficit has been 45% higher. Also since NAFTA took effect, about 170,000 small family farms have gone bankrupt which represents a decline of 21% of family farms in the U.S. The 21% of American small farmers who have been bankrupted since the advent of NAFTA, represents a higher percentage of displaced American farmers than what is happening with the forced relocation of Chinese farmers to the ghost cities as covered in the first part of this series. And what happens to American small farmers who have lost their livelihood? They either work on their former competitors corporate farms as hired hands, or they relocate to urban areas in search of employment.

In a case of “death by a thousand cuts”, the American farmer is rapidly moving towards extinction. If it is not the EPA enforcing its Agenda 21 wetlands regulations with devastating consequences on farmers, it is the FDA harassing farmers for pursuing time-honored farm related industries such as the raw milk industry. Congress is plotting new attacks on the U.S. farmer as I write these words. Even Amish farmers have felt the “swat-team wrath of the federal government. Average, everyday Americans are being arrested for merely growing their own food. The relationship between the federal government and the independent American farmer has become so strained that a 17 county region in northern California and southern Oregon have come together to try and form a 51st state dubbed the State of Jefferson.

state of jefferson banner

Whether it is China or the U.S., the United Nations Agenda 21 urbanization policies are designed for the purpose of herding people into dense urban areas for reasons of control and the primary method of control has to do with dominating food production.

The US Government Is Gaining Control Over All Food

Through the collectivization of the food production, the Chinese government is working towards gaining complete control over all food in order to control the people. On an ever increasing basis, NAFTA is providing the U.S. government with the exact same ability. Therefore, the third draconian impact of NAFTA is that it has led to even more nefarious free trade agreements and executive orders which led to the loss of control for local communities over their own food supply.

Underlying the World Trade Organization, the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA which has now morphed into the Organization of American States), and the Central American Free Trade Agreement is the philosophy that all food (i.e. from basic grains, meat, fruits and vegetables) should be exclusively produced for international export. This is a drastic departure from the time honored practice where each country produced the majority of food its citizens needed on local, small farms and only traded in certain products that could not be successfully grown locally. If anyone wonders where this is headed, we only have to look to Africa for the answer. The very first great wave of a NAFTA style of globalization in agriculture took place in Africa, Asia, and Latin America as global corporations forced local farmers to give up local food production, and shifted production to plantations using enslaved Indigenous and African labor to grow the luxury crops of coffee, sugar, bananas, and cocoa for export to the colonizing countries.

If the changing nature of food production in Africa are not enough to raise the level of concern for most, perhaps a quick history lesson will jolt the more complacent among you into a state of full awareness.

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. The large corporate collectivization of food is precisely the same thing that is presently happening in the United States under Obama.

The lesson here is, if the government controls the food, the government controls the people.

Starvation Will Be Used to Enforce the Agenda 21 Depopulation of Rural Areas

The 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, the 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.

Kissinger’s quote is important because he was tasked with implementing the insane genocidal policies contained in NSSM 200.

Kissinger’s quote is important because he was tasked with implementing the insane genocidal policies contained in NSSM 200.

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 (EO 13603), 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.

With the stroke of his pen, Obama has total and absolute control over all food where his EO 13603 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…”

NAFTA was merely the opening artillery bombardment against the American farmer and the ultimate depopulation of rural areas. The death of the American farmer will ultimately come at the hands of EO 13603 and I believe this will be fully implemented when Obama declares martial law.

“Thank God That I Do Not Live On a Farm”

Put this map into your GPS, it will tell where you soon cannot go. The UN's manifestation of forcing people into stack and pack cities.

Do you think that you and your family are actually safe from the ravages of depopulating the rural areas through economic blackmail and ultimate starvation? Think again! Unless you presently live in the core inner city and occupy less than 500 square feet of living space, the Obama administration, as I write these words, is actively plotting to get you out of your home and into densely populated urban areas and this will be fully exposed in Part Four of this series as the draconian concept of megacities is fully explored.

Political Commentary By: Roger Landry (TLB)

Let us start this discussion off by addressing the fallacy that just about any modern day national level politician (Senator, Congressman, President) participating in the the two party system (with a few Very Rare exceptions) is a true blue all American representative of the unwashed masses, having only their constituents well-being at heart. Let’s shed light on the fact that these politicians neither adhere to the published party platform, represent the citizens who elected them, or abide by any code of ethics or morals that does not directly benefit or may prove a detriment to themselves or more importantly, their puppet masters, those responsible for their ascension to power …

This premise is based on the institution of legislation such as the Patriot Act and the Indefinite Detention clause in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), both passed and ratified on multiple occasions, eliminating their passage as a one time mistake, and much more recent tyranny both legislated and by executive order, all aimed squarely at you and me. We must also consider the affordable healthcare act (Obama care) which is anything but affordable and is intended to facilitate the utter ruination of the American middle class, the mechanism responsible for the building and greatness this country had at one time achieved!

To consider that these individuals are dedicated to We The People and not their own or their masters’ gains is a misconception shared by so many Americans who trustingly but mistakenly assume that a candidate’s beliefs are bound to their political parties platform or indeed the ideals of the grass roots individuals who make up the party. To this charade the retort can only be … bull crap!

The labels Democrat, Republican, Liberal, Conservative, Progressive or NEOCON are simply tools to engage and divide the masses, to play us against one another and to keep us distracted while the true tyranny is perpetrated, hidden in plain sight. Even those who would claim these titles in leadership are but pawns in a game We The People are never to be permitted to win.

U.S. President Barack Obama applauds his audience during an event held in observance of World AIDS Day at the White House in Washington

So let us open our eyes and delve into the misdirection, hypocrisy and tyranny disguised as patriotism and the deceitfully false show of concern for the welfare of America. Because to continue in ignorance sounds the death toll for this once great nation now in crisis.

To help demonstrate the validity of this argument let us examine our most recent Republican president. George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama could not possibly be more different in every definable way, or so, through rhetoric and platform, we are purposely deceived into believing. But if we examine their deeds, then reality is a shocking wake up call for those who have been lulled into these beliefs by the lies and misdirections of the puppet masters via their most powerful and effective propaganda tool, the mainstream media (MSM)!

A characterization (snapshot) of the Bush presidency.

We start with Bush quite in character as a right wing neo-conservative, kowtowing to the Corporate Military Industrial Complex which boomed under his administration. Immediately following the 9/11 incident (another story of tyranny, lies and deceit), this country geared up for war spurred on by the fervent rhetoric of his administration! Cries of revenge and retaliation where contained in every speech and public address. The American people where whipped into a patriotic froth, waving flags and looking to exact their pound of flesh! Any Muslim, regardless of their actual nationality or allegiance was looked at with unwarranted (based on blatant lies) fear. Fear is the most effective form of control over man’s mind ever devised by mankind and serves only to perpetuate hate and protracted ignorance. This gave rise to the most expensive, expansive and destructive manhunt in the history of this planet, but was in reality a perfectly choreographed and pre-planned exercise in smoke and mirrors, lies and deceit.


No price in national treasure, respect or even human life was too large to be suffered in order to find and kill Osama Bin Laden, the devil incarnate! So we pumped up the military machine, and proceeded to invade and occupy Afghanistan. After an extended period of time, Bin Lauden was thought to have escaped through the mountain passes of Tora Bora into Pakistan. We did not leave Afghanistan but settled in to rebuild the country as we, or to be more precise, the puppet masters, thought it should be, all the while raping its society for all the gains the international banking cabal and the soulless corporate criminal elements could extract from it and a new term was coined: Nation Building. At this point we also began performing cross border raids into Pakistan, another sovereign nation, and sending Predator drones in to kill anyone who opposed us or our goals, all in the name of finding someone we were being told at the time was already dead.

Next we were told that Iraq was an eminent threat to our national security because they had weapons of mass destruction including the makings of a nuclear bomb, even though the information available to the administration at the time showed conclusively that Iraq and Sadam Hussein where willing to do “ANYTHING” to avoid war with the USA … no that just wouldn’t do for the elitist agenda. So again the nation was lied to and whipped into a frenzy to support another invasion of a sovereign nation on what we were told was a mission of extreme patriotic importance, justified by the need to protect the homeland … really? Protect it from who, or what? It seems very clear to us now these are the questions many of us should have been asking but the finely tuned engine of propaganda (the MSM) was very effective and successful in quelling any dissenting rhetoric.

So we the American public were entertained with the spectacle of “SHOCK & AWE” … WOW what a spectacle … that made the 4th of July seem weak in comparison, and we all cheered (or most of us anyway) while the reality was … thousands of innocent people were meeting their maker right before our blood thirsty eyes! Now please tell me again just what it was the Iraqi people had ever done to the American people that deserved this … ???


Again, no price in national treasure, respect or human life (both American and Iraqi) was to be spared. We marched in and decimated a county where the people enjoyed one of the highest standards of living in that part of the world and bombed it back to the stone age, eventually killing millions and poisoning generations to come through the massive utilization of depleted uranium ammunition. And guess what, no weapons of mass destruction!

At this point you would think any decent peace loving nation would have left, but not us. Again we settled in for another long session of nation building, repeating the process of raping its society for all the gains the international banking cabal and corporate vultures could extract from it, and contrary to the lies being told, we remain in both countries, in force to this day via a mix of military and mercenary force!

The winners:

The military industrial complex who continue to make billions from these wars.

The CIA drug lords who now control 90% of the world’s very lucrative heroin markets through the poppy fields in Afghanistan that thrive with US military protection.

The oil companies who again with the protection of American military might firmly entrenched in the region, began the process of building a pipeline through these occupied nations to control the sweet crude oil needed to prop up the failing petro-dollar.

The international banking cabals who immediately set up central banks in these countries.

The corporate power brokers who continue to suck the life’s blood out of anything worth stealing from these sovereign nations economies.

And the crooked politicians who supported these unnecessary wars and in turn profited from them in favor or treasure.


The losers:

The people of the sovereign nations we invaded and occupy with millions of innocent civilians dead, maimed for life or displaced from homes that no longer exist.

The massive numbers of stillbirths and birth defects that will plague these nations for many generations to come via the mechanism of depleted uranium ammunition that saturates their lands.

The American people with well over a trillion dollars wasted on these imperialistic endeavors each year that this madness continues.

The dead American servicemen who were deceived into believing they were giving their lives to protect a homeland that was never in danger to start with.

And the respect for this country once seen by the world as Camelot or the shining castle on top of the hill and now thought of as the eight hundred pound gorilla/bully on the block, hated and feared as even the old USSR never was!


How many Americans are even aware that these wars were all planned in detail in the mid to late 1990′s during the Clinton years (fact). Seven nations including Afghanistan and Iraq where put on a hit list, five of these nations being in the Middle East and all with one thing in common … they had no central banking system tied to the international cabal who, via a very powerful Oligarchy, controls the ebb and flow of capitol and wealth across the globe via institutions such as the US Federal Reserve. But a reason, a catalyst was required to set this all in motion … 9/11 … Yea this event was a mighty convenient occurrence for something already planned but I digress. As of this point, Bush is in character as a full blown NEOCON but as bad as this is, for We The People it gets worse!

G.W. Bush, while claiming to be a true conservative, is in fact responsible for initiating the largest (at the time) increase in government spending and national debt in this nation’s history (very Un-Republican). This was done on several fronts, those being the massive military spending required to fight two wars simultaneously, massive tax cuts to large and favored corporations and hidden tax hikes for the middle class already suffering the economic slowdown. In his second term a we saw a series of stimulus packages, extended unemployment benefits and corporate welfare (bailouts) designed (supposedly) to help pull this country out of what was to become the deepest recession since the great depression, triggered by the housing bubble collapse.

This economic collapse was the result of horrendous mismanagement and criminal misuse of billions, if not trillions of dollars entrusted to the world’s preeminent financial institutions, yet no one goes to prison because these are in fact the puppet masters who own the political system and the politicians (including the president). So while the middle class embarks on a downward death spiral, our government and the Federal Reserve begin to pump what would eventually exceed an estimated $16 trillion (a total far exceeding the entire federal debt at the time) and some say many times this amount internationally (some estimate over $70 trillion), in loans, bailouts and corporate welfare into the very entities responsible for the catastrophe. In essence it can be argued that the criminal perpetrators got rewarded for their misdeeds and the innocent masses got what may still eventually prove to be a fatal bi*ch slap, administered by our trusted elected representatives … lead by Bush!


It is not only our treasury and world respect that have suffered catastrophic losses during the Bush years but also our liberties, rights and freedoms! For those of us who reportedly reside in the land of the free and the home of the brave, this may be the worst of the Bush legacy! Prior to Bush the citizens of this country could not even conceive of institutions or laws controlling and usurping our freedoms and rights, such as was being done on a daily basis via vehicles such as the Patriot Act, a name ill-suited for its intent and ramifications. Then we were forced to contend with the expanded powers of the TSA, Homeland Security and FEMA as well as others we may not even be aware of. What we observed in the name of safety and security was our rights and freedoms being watered down and trampled on in a progression that continues at an accelerated pace! Witness the birth of a police state! Surely our founding fathers who sacrificed so much to bequeath to us our Constitution and Bill of Rights outlining our freedoms, liberties and unalienable rights where rolling over in their graves!

We must also contend with the fact that during his administration the government grows in leaps and bounds including it’s size, scope, influence and intrusion into our daily lives. The list of what most people would describe as very liberal, even progressive and in some cases criminal policies and actions goes on and on, all perpetrated by a supposed right wing, Conservative, anti-big and intrusive government, Republican. Can anyone explain the basis for any of this in context with the stated Republican platform? Is this even a supposed Republican mindset, or is this the blurring of the party definition by those who own the party, in fact both parties, and all to serve an intended and predetermined goal, preparing America for its role in the New World order …

This is the George W. Bush legacy in all its splendor! A man whose policies followed both Progressive (Liberal) and NEOCON (Conservative) lines of reasoning to a new crescendo of radicalism that benefited only the Bankers, Wall Street power brokers and the Military Industrial Complex to the extreme detriment of We The People!

So here we have laid bare the actions of a so called Republican who played the role of a NEOCON, and also a Progressive or Democrat. A man who’s actions cross the entire political spectrum and all its extremes. Bush was railed against, called a war criminal, a murderer and even a tyrant. His economic policies and support of the Federal Reserve’s tactics where denounced in the 2008 presidential elections by all major candidates from both parties (especially Obama) as being too radical in nature or as a total abject failure and his foreign policy was railed on for the imperialistic warmongering it in fact was! His popularity in the lame duck years of his presidency was dismal at best and we all figured anyone would be better than him … we were so very wrong!


As radical as Bush was, as damaging to this country as his economic and political actions and mandates where, and as tyrannical as his freedom robbing ideals seemed, even this pales in comparison to his successors exploits!

Next in this series we will examine the roll of a Democratic President who displays the hallmarks of a Progressive, a Socialist a NEOCON, and a Fascist all simultaneously while blatantly epitomizing to a growing number of Americans the consummate definition of a Tyrant in Part #2 of America, a Nation in Crisis: The Tyranny of the Two Party System.




Very impressive Chinese cities, but where are the people?

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

As ISIS is rampaging across Iraq and Syria, Ebola is on the loose and the flames of civil discontent are spreading across the United States, the country stands at a crossroads. There are many in the media who believe that America sits on the precipice of martial law followed by World War III. All signs certainly point to these fears coming to fruition. A question that very few seem to ask is what will society be like after World War III and the ushering in of the New World Order?

The United States has a canary in the mine from which to predict its future and it has to do with how China is implementing the United Nations based Agenda 21 policies. Agenda 21 certainly is impacting our daily lives, however, the big changes will not felt until after the United States collapses or is conquered. If one wants to know what life will be like when that time comes, we can look across the Pacific to China.

China has long led the world in repressive and inhuman enforcement of its population with repressive one child policies, mandatory sterilization and forced abortions. We also know that China permits corporate slave labor (e.g. Walmart) within its boundaries by globalist corporations. China is also becoming a model for the implementation of Agenda 21 and this implementation phase is taking a new and dramatic twist through the creation of a series of “ghost cities” in which monolithic cities are built, but there are only a few to no residents occupying these cities. Dateline Australia estimates that as many as 10 of these cities are being built every year. We, in the United States, should watch this Agenda 21 canary in the mine because it represents our future.

Agenda 21, the United Nations and You

The United Nations Agenda 21 policies are in the early stages of nudging the planet into a “more equitable and just new world order”. Although Agenda 21′s influence is seemingly everywhere and completely noticed by those who are in tune to the present globalization trends, the dramatic and full influence will not be fully realized until the United States has collapsed economically. In other words, Agenda 21 is a blueprint for a post-Constitutional America. This leads to the inevitable question as to when the economic collapse of the United States will take place? There is no definitive answer to this question. However, when we consider that the United States has a 17 trillion dollar deficit, an estimated 240 trillion dollar unfunded set of liabilities (e.g.Medicare, Social Security) and the estimated derivatives debt, that the American taxpayer was forced to assume in the “bailouts”, is estimated to be between one quadrillion to 1.5 quadrillion dollars. These three numbers represent the chest pains; the fatal American economic heart attack could come any day.

The Ecocity Builders is a non-profit non-governmental organization, affiliated with the United Nations, which is a collaboration of international networks of associates that influence and actively participate in local city planning projects all across the US. Through training courses they promote the ecocity approach as the future of human civilization. 

Ecocity is a major implementation arm of the United Nations Agenda 21 urbanization policies.

Through coercive conferences like the International Ecocity Conference series is an international movement toward building locally and globally. The ecocity advocates have created UN sustainable cities in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Brazil, South Africa, Turkey, a dozen countries in Europe, Korea, Australia and the focus of this article, in China.

An ecocity is often characterized in terms with Agenda 21 precepts including:

  • Human settlements modeled after sustainable development that functions with natural ecosystems and living organisms

  • Reduce the inhabitants ecological impact on the environment

  • Restoration of ecosystems after the recolonization of humans into dense cities

  • Sustainable living under Agenda 21 supports regional, national and global economic systems

The recolonization of humans into dense cities is the focus for the remainder of this article.

Agenda 21 Comes to China In Stealth

Agenda 21 is being implemented in China at breakneck speed and the latest phase is coming in under stealth and deception.

The Chinese government is in the process of relocating 250,000 people per week from rural farmlands to densely populated urban areas into what has been dubbed as the Chinese ghost towns. Many of us have heard about these Chinese ghost cities. However, until this year we didn’t really know the true purpose of why these ghost cities were being built. However, the veil is being lifted and now it is becoming very obvious as to what the Chinese are up to.

Is this landmark located in Paris, or somewhere else? The answer will surprise you>

In one of these ghost towns, the Chinese built a nearly deserted replica of Paris complete with its own Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysees. In the process, the Chinese even leveled a range of 700 mountains as even geography can’t stand in the way of another ghost city. 

Adrian Brown filed a very telling report with the Australian division of Dateline in 2011 on the topic of ghost cities. The 15 minute report received almost no attention in the United States but it received a stunning three million views in Australia.

China Is Now an Urban Country

China’s urban population has passed the 50% mark, according to China’s Bureau of Statistics. America reached this milestone in 1920, almost a full century before the Chinese and our urbanization was fueled by the demand for cheap labor to fill the new factory jobs. The Communist Chinese regime touts urbanization as the engine behind China’s future economic development. The Chinese propagandists are telling the masses that they must accept relocation from rural to urban because it will fuel the Chinese economy of the future. And what the Chinese propagandists are telling the people is a lie and as with many things in politics, there is the reason and there is the real reason.

Chinese Propaganda

Although the Chinese government and a select few globalist corporations claim that the Chinese urban population migration is fueled by the need for workers, other Chinese experts tell a different story.

In a Nov. 23, 2011 report, the Beijing Times, one of the most liberal of the Chinese newspapers, quoted the deputy inspector at China’s National Land Bureau, Gan Zangchun, said that the government land acquisition has created “fake urbanization.” In other words, the Chinese urbanization, based upon economic reasons, is a fraud. Then why is there such an urgency on the part of the Chinese government to move its population to urban areas at such a rapid pace and with such inhumanity?

The Real Reasons

For the past few years, people in the West were baffled as to why the Chinese were building massive ghost cities that can house over 1 million people each and yet, these ghost cities were dormant until just recently. The Chinese have over 65 million micro-apartments (i.e. apartments which are under 500 square feet) which lie vacant in these ghost cities.

The urbanization of America took place in proportion to the number of factory jobs which were available well into the industrial period of our history. The American factory jobs enticed future workers to leave the farm and relocate to cities. However, China is taking a “build it and they will come” approach. In other words, the more naive among us are supposed to believe that if the people move into the cities, factory jobs will follow. Stalin tried it as did Pol Pot, and it did not work and what we are really looking at here is a cover story.

More Chinese Experts Debunk the State Propaganda

Chinese political refugee and Princeton University professor, Cheng Xiaonong, stated that in several Chinese locations, farmers are being forcibly relocated at gun point and forced to relocate to urban areas. Cheng said, “[Party chief] Bo Xilai has been promoting a policy of moving farmers into towns, building apartments and moving forcibly relocated farmers into these stack and pack apartments and treating this as urbanization.” Cheng said urbanization isn’t about calculating how many farmers are relocated into cities, but about farmers being able to move into the city and gaining some measure of sustainable employment and adequate living conditions. These relocated farmers, without the prospect of jobs, is a recipe for economic and social disaster. Soon, there will be tens of millions of Chinese totally dependent on government handouts to survive. This is the power that governments strive to obtain because it gives them total control. This Chinese scene is reminiscent of the Agenda 21 inspired movie, Hunger Games.

Cheng makes the same observations as many other Chinese experts as he added that “urbanization is generally accompanied by economic growth as was the case in the US. In other countries, urbanization happens naturally, but in mainland China, urbanization is the result of the Chinese regime forcefully pushing farmers off of their land.”

Since the Chinese are not industrialized to the point which would justify the mass movement of 1 million people per month into its ghost towns, any reasonable person would be asking the question, why?

Who Is Behind Chinese Urbanization?

The Chinese government has held many conferences in which they have received consultation from some very disturbing sources, known to most of us as the global elite.

paulsonWho could forget Hank Paulson, the former Secretary of the Treasury and the former CEO of Goldman Sachs? Paulson is championing the strategy of forced relocation. In relation to Paulson’s observation and encouragement of Chinese urbanization he states, “The country’s economy is heading in the right direction. This is more important than achieving short-term growth.” Paulson went on to say that the economic growth in China has made urbanization a necessary and proper development. Are you kidding me? We have heard from Chinese experts, both inside and outside the country, who claim that economics is not fueling urban growth. Chinese urban growth is being fueled by bayonets and bullets. Hank Paulson is such a gem. I’m sure you remember “Mr. too-big-to-fail”, Hank Paulson, when he told Congress that if we, the American taxpayer, did not bail out Wall Street, there would be an economic collapse and we would have martial law and the rest as they say, is history. Bailout after bailout has come and gone and the net effect is that the American economy is in a tailspin. One has to legitimately have to wonder why the Chinese are taking economic advice from him? That’s like taking advice from Dr. Kevorkian on how to preserve life.

Another key globalist, Dominic Barton, the global managing director of McKinsey & CO., and he too sounds like a Paulson clone, as he recently stated, “The good news is that there is an underlying force of growth and that’s urbanization. What we’re basically seeing is more than 250,000 people moving from rural areas to cities every week.”  

Maurice Strong and George Soros are also players in this mass migration movement. If job demand is not fueling urbanization, then what is?

Getting Down to the Truth

It would seem that key globalists are trying to disguise the real reasons on why the Chinese government is forcibly relocating one million farmers per month to their ghost cities. Ask yourself America, where have we seen the philosophical belief that rural areas should be uninhabited and the population should be herded into densely populated stack and pack cities?

Make no mistake about it, the Chinese with the backing of globalist corporations like Goldman Sachs, are engaged in full-blown Agenda 21 relocation of its civilian population from rural areas to the stack and pack of their mega-cities. From the outside looking in, it looks like a beta test. And there is sufficient evidence to suggest that the same is preparing to happen in the United States.

The Chinese Are Behind a Barrel and They Have Pointed That Barrel At Their People

Why would the Chinese be taking marching orders from Paulson, Strong, Soros and company? The answer is simple, the Chinese government hopes to survive the coming bond collapse in the US which could happen in mere days, weeks or months. The Chinese hold much of our debt in bonds. The Chinese have undoubtedly come to the full realization that their economy will massively implode when American bonds crash and the best way to control the people’s backlash is to herd them together in what has become dubbed as “stack and pack” Agenda 21 cities.


By moving one million people per month to the ghost cities, the Chinese will find that subjugating their country will be much easier when a martial law crackdown is instituted as necessitated by the coming economic catastrophe. that is going to befall both China and the United States.

It is also not difficult to speculate that the Chinese have made an under the table deal with the global elite to be the beta test for Agenda 21 style population forced relocation in order to temporarily to stave off absolute financial ruin.

Many are probably wondering if there is anything going on inside the United States which parallels the forced relocation of the population to these “stack and pack” cities?” The short answer is, most definitely. The days are numbered for both American suburbs and rural areas.

Thanks to Mayor Bloomberg and the San Francisco City Council, the concept of transition towns, inner city developmental tax breaks for construction and much more, America is following suit with the Chinese style Agenda 21 policies on many fronts and this is the topic of Part two of this series.

American Police State

“Obedience is the precondition to totalitarianism, and the precondition to obedience is fear.”

By: John W Whitehead

“The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern.”C.S. Lewis, the Screwtape Letters

Whether it’s the working mother arrested for letting her 9-year-old play unsupervised at a playground, the teenager forced to have his genitals photographed by police, the underage burglar sentenced to 23 years for shooting a retired police dog, or the 43-year-old man who died of a heart attack after being put in a chokehold by NYPD officers allegedly over the sale of untaxed cigarettes, the theater of the absurd that passes for life in the American police state grows more tragic and incomprehensible by the day.

Debra Harrell, a 46-year-old South Carolina working mother, was arrested, charged with abandonment and had her child placed in state custody after allowing the 9-year-old to spend unsupervised time at a neighborhood playground while the mom worked a shift at McDonald’s. Mind you, the child asked to play outside, was given a cell phone in case she needed to reach someone, and the park—a stone’s throw from the mom’s place of work—was overrun with kids enjoying its swings, splash pad, and shade.

Connecticut mother was charged with leaving her 11-year-old daughter in the car unsupervised while she ran inside a store—despite the fact that the child asked to stay in the car and was not overheated or in distress. A few states away, a New Jersey man was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of his children after leaving them in a car parked in a police station parking lot, windows rolled down, while he ran inside to pay a ticket.

A Virginia teenager was charged with violating the state’s sexting law after exchanging sexually provocative videos with his girlfriend. Instead of insisting that the matter be dealt with as a matter of parental concern, police charged the boy with manufacturing and distributing child pornography and issued a search warrant to “medically induce an erection” in the 17-year-old boy in order to photograph his erect penis and compare it to the images sent in the sexting exchange.  The police had already taken an initial photograph of the boy’s penis against his will, upon his arrest.

In Georgia, a toddler had his face severely burned when a flash bang grenade, launched by a SWAT team during the course of a no-knock warrant, landed in his portable crib, detonating on his pillow. Also in Georgia, a police officer shot and killed a 17-year-old boy who answered the door, reportedly with a Nintendo Wii controller in his hands. The cop claimed the teenager pointed a gun at her, thereby justifying the use of deadly force. Then there was the incident wherein a police officer, responding to a complaint that some children were “chopping off tree limbs” creating “tripping hazards,”pulled a gun on a group of 11-year-old boys who were playing in a wooded area, attempting to build a tree fort.

While the growing phenomenon of cops shooting family pets only adds to the insanity (it is estimated that a family pet is killed by law enforcement every 98 minutes in America), it’s worse for those who dare to shoot a police dog. Ivins Rosier was 16 when he broke into the home of a Florida highway patrol officer and shot (although he didn’t kill) the man’s retired police dog. For his crime, the teenager was sentenced to 23 years in prison, all the while police officers who shoot family pets are rarely reprimanded.

Meanwhile if you’re one of those hoping to live off the grid, independent of city resources, you might want to think again. Florida resident Robin Speronis was threatened with eviction for living without utilities. Speronis was accused of violating the International Property Maintenance Code by relying on rain water instead of the city water system and solar panels instead of the electric grid.

Now we can shrug these incidents off as isolated injustices happening to “other” people. We can rationalize them away by suggesting that these people “must” have done something to warrant such treatment. Or we can acknowledge that this slide into totalitarianism—helped along by overcriminalization, government surveillance, militarized police, neighbors turning in neighbors, privatized prisons, and forced labor camps, to name just a few similarities—is tracking very closely with what we saw happening in Germany in the years leading up to Hitler’s rise to power.

When all is said and done, what these incidents reflect is a society that has become so bureaucratic, so legalistic, so politically correct, so militaristic, so locked down, so self-righteous, and so willing to march in lockstep with the corporate-minded police state that any deviations from the norm—especially those that offend the sensibilities of the “government-knows-best” nanny state or challenge the powers that be—become grist for prosecution, persecution and endless tribulations for the poor souls who are caught in the crosshairs.

Then there are the incidents, less colorful perhaps but no less offensive to the sensibilities of any freedom-loving individual, which should arouse outrage among the populace but often slip under the radar of a sleeping nation.

For instance, not only is the NSA spying on and collecting the content of your communications, but it’s also going to extreme lengths to label as “extremists” anyone who attempts to protect their emails from the government’s prying eyes. Adding insult to injury, those same government employees and contractors spying on Americans’ private electronic communications are also ogling their private photos. Recent revelations indicate that NSA employees routinely pass around intercepted nude photos, considered a “fringe benefit” of surveillance positions.

trove of leaked documents reveals the government’s unmitigated gall in labeling Americans as terrorists for little more than being suspected of committing “any act that is ‘dangerous’ to property and intended to influence government policy through intimidation.” As The Intercept reports: “This combination—a broad definition of what constitutes terrorism and a low threshold for designating someone a terrorist—opens the way to ensnaring innocent people in secret government dragnets.” All the while, the TSA, despite the billions of dollars we spend on the agency annually and the liberties to which its agents subject travelers, has yet to catch a single terrorist.

No less disconcerting are the rash of incidents in which undercover government agents encourage individuals to commit crimes they might not have engaged in otherwise. This “make work” entrapment scheme runs the gamut from terrorism to drugs. In fact, a recent report released by Human Rights Watch reveals that “nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the ‘direct involvement’ of government agents or informants.”

Most outrageous of all are the asset forfeiture laws that empower law enforcement to rake in huge sums of money by confiscating cash, cars, and even homes based on little more than a suspicion of wrongdoing. In this way, Americans who haven’t been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of wrongdoing, are literally being subjected to highway robbery by government agents offering profit-driven, cash-for-freedom deals.

So who or what is to blame for this bureaucratic nightmare delivered by way of the police state? Is it the White House? Is it Congress? Is it the Department of Homeland Security, with its mobster mindset? Is it some shadowy, power-hungry entity operating off a nefarious plan?

Or is it, as Holocaust survivor Hannah Arendt suggests, the sheepish masses who mindlessly march in lockstep with the government’s dictates—expressing no outrage, demanding no reform, and issuing no challenge to the status quo—who are to blame for the prison walls being erected around us? The author of The Origins of Totalitarianism, Arendt warned that “the greatest evil perpetrated is the evil committed by nobodies, that is, by human beings who refuse to be persons.”

This is where democracy falls to ruin, and bureaucracy and tyranny prevail.

As I make clear in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, we have only ourselves to blame for this bureaucratic hell that has grown up around us. Too many of us willingly, knowingly and deliberately comprise what Arendt refers to as “cogs in the mass-murder machine.”

These cogs are none other than those of us who have turned a blind eye to the government corruption, or shrugged dismissively at the ongoing injustices, or tuned out the mayhem in favor of entertainment distractions. Just as guilty are those who have traded in their freedoms for a phantom promise of security, not to mention those who feed the machine unquestioningly with their tax dollars and partisan politics.

And then there are those who work for the government, federal, state, local or contractor. These government employees—the soldiers, the cops, the technicians, the social workers, etc.—are neither evil nor sadistic. They’re simply minions being paid to do a job, whether that job is to arrest you, spy on you, investigate you, crash through your door, etc. However, we would do well to remember that those who worked at the concentration camps and ferried the victims to the gas chambers were also just “doing their jobs.”

Then again, if we must blame anyone, blame the faceless, nameless, bureaucratic government machine—which having been erected and set into motion is nearly impossible to shut down—for the relentless erosion of our freedoms through a million laws, statutes, and prohibitions.

If there is any glimmer of hope to be found, it will be at the local level, but we cannot wait for things to get completely out of control. If you wait to act until the SWAT team is crashing through your door, until your name is placed on a terror watch list, until you are reported for such outlawed activities as collecting rainwater or letting your children play outside unsupervised, then it will be too late.

Obedience is the precondition to totalitarianism, and the precondition to obedience is fear. Regimes of the past and present understand this. “The very first essential for success,” Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf, “is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence.” Is this not what we are seeing now with the SWAT teams and the security checkpoints and the endless wars?

This much I know: we are not faceless numbers. We are not cogs in the machine. We are not slaves. We are people, and free people at that. As the Founders understood, our freedoms do not flow from the government. They were not given to us, to be taken away at the will of the State; they are inherently ours. In the same way, the government’s appointed purpose is not to threaten or undermine our freedoms, but to safeguard them.

Until we can get back to this way of thinking, until we can remind Americans what it really means to be a free American, and learn to stand our ground in the face of threats to those freedoms, and encourage our fellow citizens to stop being cogs in the machine, we will continue as slaves in thrall to the bureaucratic police state.

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

The new Army manual, known as ATP 3-39.33, provides discussion and techniques about civil disturbances and crowd control operations that occur in the continental United States (CONUS) and outside the continental United States (OCONUS). 

This document, just published this past Friday, August 15, 2014, promises to change the way the “authorities” deal with protesters, even peaceful ones. The consequences of ATP 39.33 could prove deadly for protesters. Further, the provisions of this Army manual could prove to be the end of the First Amendment right to peaceably assemble.


On August 15, 2014, the U.S. Army published and released the Army-Civil Disturbances Manual-2014. The contents are frightening and should be offensive to American citizen.

In section 1-2., the manual states that  “Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots“. This section of the manual clearly states that protesting is a right protected by the Constitution. However, the authorities leave themselves an out to “legally” engage in lethal force toward protesters when the manual states that “peaceful protests can turn into full-scale riots” and field commanders have the right to make that determination. Subsequently, all protests, peaceful or not, need to be managed by the potential for violence. In other words, all protests are to be considered to be violent and handled accordingly. This certainly explains the violent manhandling of the media by the DHS controlled and militarized police in Ferguson, MO.

Posse Comitatus Is Violated

On the surface, the Posse Comitatus Act (18 USC 1385) act should prevent the Army from deploying the troops in the midst of a protest that is not on the scale of something like the 1992 LA Riots. However, the Army claims exemption from Posse Comitatus in the four following areas. 

  • 10 USC 331. When a state is unable to control domestic violence and they have requested federal assistance, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.

  • 10 USC 332. When ordinary enforcement means are unworkable due to unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.

  • 10 USC 333. When a state cannot or will not protect the constitutional rights of the citizens, due to domestic violence or conspiracy to hinder execution of State or Federal law, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.

  • House Joint Resolution 1292. This resolution directs all departments of the U.S. government, upon request of the Secret Service, to assist in carrying out its statutory duties to protect government officials and major political candidates from physical harm.


With regard to 10 USC 331, if the local authorities have lost control in the midst of a profound display of domestic violence (e.g. LA Riots), most Americans support the use of National Guard or the military.  However, in 10 USC 332, 333 and House Joint Resolution 1292 are ripe with exceptions which opens the door to federal authorities abusing the public for exercising their Constitutional right to protest.

In 10 USC 332, the phrase “unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized”  and this permits the federal government from being demonstrated against. An act of demonstration, or the most benign demonstrations of civil disobedience gives the government the authority to take “deadly action” against the public  because there are no clear distinctions on when the use of lethal and nonlethal force is appropriate (see the two charts displayed below). 

murietta 2In 10 USC 333, any disruption of federal law can be decisively dealt with by the federal government. The phrase “…conspiracy to hinder execution of State or Federal law, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized” is a telling passage of this Army document. If 10 USC 333 is applied to the letter of the written Army policy, the protesters who recently objected to illegal aliens being deposited in Murietta, California, could be subject to deadly force. Further, the protesters in Ferguson could be subject to the use of lethal force as well (Again, see the charts below).

The next time a community decides that it does not want to accept illegal immigrants, or protest the shooting of an unarmed 18 year old,  they could be met by the following:

swat team ferguson

No Protests!

No more protests.


The fourth exception claimed by the Army with regard to the Army’s right to violate Posse Comitatus, is presented to the American people under the veil of the need to protect politicians.

House Resolution 1292 claims any protest which makes a public official feel “threatened” would be illegal and subject to intervention by the U.S. Army. Hypothetically, if 100 protesters were to gather outside of Senator John McCain’s office in Phoenix, would that be enough to trigger a violent response by the Army? If McCain says he feels threatened, regardless if his claims are legitimate or not, it most certainly would justify the strongest response possible from the Army. Therefore, all a politician has to do is to say they feel threatened by any gathering to have the gathering dispersed and the protesters dealt with in any manner seen fit by the field commander. Make no mistake about it, this is the end of the First Amendment’s right peaceably assemble.

 Army Depictions On How Best to Kill An American Citizen Who Expresses Disagreement with the Government

Do you remember the uproar when DHS was caught distributing target practicing sheets of pregnant women to be used for DHS agents when they were engaged in target practicing?


dhs target 2

And of course, I am certain that you recall the use of an elderly person’s image to be used by DHS agents for the same purpose. The implication is clear; The American people are the new terrorists.

dhs target 1

Below, is the graphic depiction of the Army’s version of a terrorist and worse yet, there are instructions on how to best maim and kill an American citizen who is engaged in their Constitutional right to protest

How to best kill and maim an American.

The second chart is a sample guideline on when the application of lethal force is appropriate to be applied to protesters. Please note the ambiguity with regard to the application of lethal force. It is also noteworthy to point out that the following chart provides for the planned use of snipers to target the perceived leaders of a protest. These procedures remind one of the events in Kiev prior to the ouster of the Russian-friendly Prime Minister. It would appear that CIA agents were beta testing these procedures in Kiev prior to the coup.

army use of lethal force


 ATP 39.33 is quite clear in its intent which is to eliminate the act of protesting from the American landscape. More disturbingly, the right to summarily execute peaceful protesters is contained in this Army manual due to the purposeful ambiguity of when it is appropriate to use deadly force against protesters.This Army manual is an example of hard core, in-your-face martial law befitting the most violent regimes in the history of the planet.

There is another message contained in ATP 39.33 and that is the clear anticipation that the American people are going to feel the need to be protesting in earnest in the foreseeable future. What exactly are the American people going to feel compelled to protest that remains unspecified in this manual? Could it be resistance to mandatory Ebola vaccinations? Could we be looking at food riots in the future? Will it be a currency collapse that puts Americans in the street? Will America rise up and say no to the plans for World War III and the coming conscription of both potential military personnel and a civilian labor slave force as described under Executive Order 13603?

Not only should this document be a frightening wake-up call for all Americans, it should also serve as a warning for what is to come.

There are six vaccine bills in each of 30+ states that now either require more vaccines for more people or further restrict our right to refuse them.

The National Vaccine Information Center’s Advocacy Portal ( lists current vaccine bills throughout the U.S. Right now, it lists from one to six vaccine bills in each of 30+ states. Most of these bills, if passed into law, would further expand an already out-of-control pharmaceutical vaccine agenda that seeks to require more vaccines for more people while further restricting our right to refuse them. Join the Portal NOW to help defend vaccine freedom of choice!

Here’s a quick look at the authoritarian agendas being promoted by current bills around the U.S.:

1. Flu vaccines (6 states):
A) Required for healthcare workers: CT, IL, MO
B) Required for the elderly: CT
C) Must be offered to healthcare workers: GA, NJ
D) Must adopt a flu vaccine policy: CT
E) Health department may offer to kids in schools: PA

2. HPV vaccine (6 states):
A) Required: KY (boys and girls), NY, VA (boys)
B) Parents required to get information about: FL, GA
C) Health department can provide to girls entering 7th grade: SC *(unconstitutional if done without parental knowledge and consent)

3. Meningitis vaccine: Required for middle school, high school and/or college students (7 states): IL, IN, MO, NE, NY, TN, TX

4. DTP vaccine: Hospitals must mandate to employees: NE

5. Other New Employee Vaccine Requirements:
A) Vaccines for childcare facility employees: TX
B) Pertussis vaccine required for teachers and childcare workers: VT

6. Schools have to post exemption rates: AZ

7. Pharmacists may vaccinate children (6 states): GA, MD, MT, NJ, OH, OR

8. Department of health may make changes to vaccine requirements based on federal recommendations: HI

9. Vaccine Registries (4 states):
A) Extend immunization tracking to include adults: ID, ND
B) Removes informed consent for vaccine registry: TX
C) Immunization records can be shared with the tracking system without consent: MT

10. Requires parents to receive vaccine propaganda to exercise an exemption for their child: ME

11. Restricts access to religious exemptions: NJ

12. Allows minors to consent to vaccines: NY, TX

13. Suspends non-medical exemptions when exemption rates fall below 90%: VT

It’s not all bad news, though. Here’s a summary of bills that would further the cause of vaccine freedom if signed into law:

1. Remove or Prohibit Requirements (3 states):
A) Prohibit employers from requiring flu vaccines: CT
B) Prohibits flu vaccine requirement for school children: MI
C) Removes immunization requirement for community-technical colleges: CT

2. Add or Protect An Exemption (6 states):
A) Adds a conscientious or philosophical exemption: KS, NY, NJ, OR
B) Exempts children under 6 from Hep. B vaccine if the mother

tests negative: NJ
C) Provides protections for parents who exercise a religious exemption: NY;

The pharmaceutical vaccine agenda is playing out rapidly in state legislatures. We MUST speak out now, loudly and effectively, if we are to avoid becoming an authoritarian vaccine police state where everyone is required to get vaccine after vaccine with no right to refuse. In 2010, there were more than 330 vaccines either already on the market or in development. Now, there are 250 vaccines either in clinical trials or already awaiting approval by the FDA.[1] There’s no light at the end of this tunnel.

My elementary school’s DARE officer always warned it was illegal drugs, like marijuana and MDMA, that put holes in people who used them.* But in one recent case of drug related violence, it was an armed gang of street thugs who did just that to a drug-free toddler in their latest home invasion. When they threw a flashbang grenade into the crib of Alecia Phonesavanh’s 2-year-old son, it left a hole in the boy’s chest to his rib. He was hospitalized for three weeks, and remains scarred with burns and who knows how much mental trauma from the incident.

Unlike the M16s the SWAT team was armed with, ecstacy isn’t capable of actually leaving holes in people’s heads. It’s just another drug war myth, similar to those surrounding LSD and pot, and propagandized police departments have fed it to a drugophobic public for decades.

That’s not to say that a molly roll, or any illegal substance, is completely risk free. But despite the fact tainted pills are known to have killed people on the black market, it is still far less dangerous than what the prohibition of any substance enables law enforcement to do to families like this one:

“A few nights ago, my 8-year-old woke up in the middle of the night screaming, ‘No, don’t kill him! You’re hurting my brother! Don’t kill him.’ How can I ever make that go away? I used to tell my kids that if they were ever in trouble, they should go to the police for help. Now my kids don’t want to go to sleep at night because they’re afraid the cops will kill them or their family. It’s time to remind the cops that they should be serving and protecting our neighborhoods, not waging war on the people in them.”

More from

As a room to room search eventually revealed, nobody on the raided property even had any drugs.

But suppose they did find contraband considered illegal under state and federal law?

Would that have justified half of the actions a militarized SWAT team took in the name of ‘enforcing the law’ in this case?

Some might say that laws against drugs must be enforced simply because they are laws. That means no matter how flawed or immoral these particular laws might be, they will want violators of them threatened with perpetual violence should they choose a recreational activity others don’t approve of.

This argument is often heard from ‘law and order conservatives,’ and I know I’m not the only one finally fed up with the hypocrisy of it. If we contrast the ideas of many of today’s conservative ‘patriots’ with the actions of their self-professed ideological forefathers during the American Revolution, their idol worship of law and order contradicts the struggle for independence completely. The conflict started, after all, over unjust British laws over tea and taxation. Its most remembered acts of civil disobedience were the Boston Tea Party of 1773, and of course the colonial rebellion itself, which the British crown considered high treason.

In 1776, literal law and order conservatives were Red Coats. They weren’t classical liberal rabble rousers like Thomas Paine, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, and others who considered disobedience of unjust laws a consistent calling in life.

Still, there are idols of today’s Tea Party movement, like presumed presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, who say laws must be enforced, no matter how many innocents die when they are. That’s in essence what a Draft Carson ’16 petitioner regurgitated to me once when I refused their petition on common sense civil liberties grounds.

If that’s how they really feel, and if they value their argument’s consistency, a former Auschwitz camp guard might need a defense attorney after being found in Philadelphia. SS officers like Breyer were “just following orders” as well when they enforced the laws of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich.

Not to equate perhaps well meaning American drug warriors inherently to Nazism – but they undoubtedly bring eerie similarities to light when they too defend the indefensible.


*This same cop also led a whole class of 5th Graders to believe, until they reached high school, that marijuana was a white powdery substance that would rot their brains out. If he was speaking from personal experience, that could possibly explain the whole lecture.

By: Wesley J. Smith

I guess it takes global warming hysteria to get the bioethics movement to criticize what is known in the trade as “artificial reproductive technologies” or ART.

But now, in the ever more radical Journal of Medical Ethics, Cristina Richie, of Boston College’s Department of Theology, argues that these technologies should be regulated to limit the number of children–called “carbon legacies,” as a means of fighting climate change. From the article:

A carbon footprint is the aggregate of resource use and carbon emissions over a person’s life. A carbon legacy occurs when a person chooses to procreate. All people have carbon footprints; only people with biological children have carbon legacies.

I don’t know if Richie coined the term, but it is ridiculous. Children are children, not bundles of carbon producers.

ART is an almost unregulated industry, a lamentable circumstance with which many bioethicists are content. But Richie says global warming has to change the field’s thinking about ART.

Through the use of ARTs multiple children are born, adding to worldwide carbon emissions. This is a burden on the already over-taxed ecosystem to support new beings who might not have existed without medical intervention. It is therefore the obligation of environmental policymakers, the ethical and medical communities, and even society to carefully weigh the interests of our shared planet with a business that intentionally creates more humans when we must reduce our carbon impact.

All those IVF babies are melting the ice caps!

While population growth and ARTs are not the primary environmental issue that should concern ecologists and bioethicists, the numbers of ART babies are increasing at an exponential rate. If we were to look at these numbers in terms of carbon emissions instead of raw population growth data, the statistics look grim.

No, grim is the exploitation of surrogates in biological colonialism and the eugenic impetus that has sunk its fangs deep into the heart of the industry. In the face of such human objectification, sorry, I can’t get upset about global warming.

It’s time to regulate!

The unregulated ART business can no longer be endorsed and the medical industry ought not operate in an environmental vacuum. Retrenchment in all areas of life is the key to slowing down or halting carbon emissions that lead to climate change. For each child made through medical intervention a carbon legacy results. ARTs should be allocated with due concern for the environment and sober consideration for the implications of climate change.

Carbon caps on the fertility business and eliminating funded ARTs for those who are not biologically infertile are the beginning of an environmentally sustainable ART business.​

“And Jesus said, ‘Suffer the little carbon legacies to come onto me’…” Good grief.
