ISIS: “We are here and we are funded by your government through Swiss banks”.

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

Have you ever wondered why President Obama is so willing to chase ISIS into Syria and risk war with Russia, but he allows an ISIS base camp to remain intact only 8 miles from El Paso?

Both this article and the subsequent interview will answer the aforementioned question while demonstrating how the U.S. is funding the very enemy we are supposed to be trying to destroy.  All is revealed in this “tell-all” in one of the most important interviews ever conducted on The Common Sense Show.

Scott Bennett Was a “Who’s Who” On International Terrorism and American PSYOPS

ISIS is funded by the CIA, so says Scott Bennett who is a U.S. Army Special Operations Officer (11th Psychological Operations Battalion, Civil Affairs-Psychological Operations Command), and a global psychological warfare-counterterrorism analyst, formerly with defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. He received a Direct Commission as an Officer, held a Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmentalized Information (TS/SCI)security clearance, and worked in the highest levels of international counterterrorism in Washington DC and MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. He has developed and managed psychological warfare theories, products, and operations for U.S. Special Operations Command, U.S. Central Command, the State Department Coordinator for Counterterrorism, and other government agencies.

Bennett served in the G.W. Bush Administration from 2003 to 2008, and was a Social Science Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation. His writings and lectures seek to enhance global awareness and understanding of modern psychological warfare, the international military-intelligence community, and global surveillance operations being artificially generated under the spectre of “National Security”.

The Message You Are Not Supposed to Hear

Scott Bennett was my guest on Sunday night, May 3, 2015, on The Common Sense Show. At least he was supposed to be my guest until both the servers and the live stream feeds, which are housed three thousand miles apart, were taken down by an unknown source. Fortunately, we were still heard by phone, but that was all. Scott Bennett is an expert on terrorism and the moment we got too deeply into the topic, somebody pulled the plug on our satellite provider, in multiple locations. However, the interview was preserved on our archives and is available for listening. What the bad guys must not realize that about 40 times more people listen to the archives than the live broadcast.

The net effect of taking down the bulk of our interview with Scott Bennett will be about the same as was NPR’s lame attempt to collectively disparage my reporting on Jade Helm. On May 3, my website analytics revealed that about 20,000 NPR readers actually came to The Common Sense Show website, directly from NPR, to take a look around because of the negative article. Thanks NPR and thanks to the people who attacked our show last night. As word spreads about how The Common Sense Show was attacked, the curiosity factor will double or triple our normal listenership. Thanks to NPR and the other would-be-assassins of the truth for helping our staff spread the truth partially through the law of unintended consequences.

 Summary of the Interview

During the course of the interview, we spoke extensively on how 9/11 was most likely a CIA/Mossad operation and key written records were destroyed in two locations both at Building 7 and at the Pentagon. Had the financial records from either site ever been made public, this government would have been brought to its knees because of the massive financial corruption that would have been revealed.

We also spoke of Russian-American relations and the tragedy and needless rise of the new Cold War. Bennett stated our corporate greed and American hegemony has placed us in a position where we are now isolated from our allies and Europe is in the process of turning their collective backs on the United States in which Germany, for example, is likely to leave NATO and align with Russia.

Bennett has written extensively on the intelligence community’s surveillance activities addressed by Edward Snowden’s National Security Agency-Central Intelligence Agency materials; and since 2010, Bennett has filed numerous military-government whistle-blowing reports with Congressional Committees, including: the Intelligence, the Armed Services, the Government Oversight and Reform, the Homeland Security, the Judiciary, the Foreign Affairs, the Banking, and the Terrorism Committees. He has communicated with over a hundred Federal representatives, Senators, senior military officers and Pentagon officials, and journalists about the scandalous abuses of power and deception being employed against the American people by its own military-intelligence community; and the most damning report brought into the public sector occurred when he …

Filed legal action against Booz Allen Hamilton and the Department of Defense for their involvement in secret Swiss Bank Terrorist Finance Operations, in which he uncovered with the help of Union Bank of Switzerland whistleblower, Brad Birkenfeld a massive terrorist funding program. 

We know that ISIS got its “beginnings” from U.S. military equipment deliberately left behind in Iraq. Bennett and I both agree that to leave unsecured weapons on a former battlefield was undoubtedly an intentional act because of the strict military protocols against such a practice. Again, he views ISIS, which is a hybrid terrorist organization, as the artificial creation of the CIA and the Mossad in a joint operation. Ultimately, chasing ISIS into Syria will result in Russian intervention and World War III. But first, we have to contend with ISIS on our doorstep, only 8 miles from El Paso. This is the quintessential false flag cover in which they hope to convince most of America to accept martial law out of ignorance to the role that the CIA and its allies will have played in the event. This parallels the letter I received from the Texas Ranger on the same topic in which he claimed that the Rangers are bracing for an attack by ISIS against targets in Texas.

Insurance Against Harm

Scott Bennett’s information is  so sensitive and so many careers and even individual freedoms rests upon what he reveals, or keeps secret, there are many who would like to see him dead. Subsequently, Bennett has taken steps to insure his longevity.

Bennett is all too keenly aware of what was done to journalist Michael Hastings after he and Michael Isikoff (NBC News) began investigating Bennett’s reports and materials in relation to the Edward Snowden and Brad Birkenfeld connections (CIA-NSA-Swiss Banks-Booz Allen Hamilton-Terrorist Finance). The Birkenfeld, Swiss banking connection, is telling. Birkenfeld oversaw money placed in Swiss bank accounts and then redistributed to terrorist organizations around the world. Subsequently, there are many who would like to see him dead. Bennett has taken steps to insure his longevity. Individuals have been killed for far less and Bennett issues the following warning on his website.

WARNING: In the event of my untimely death, additional documents and materials will be immediately released which expose all previously undisclosed persons, networks, operations, and financial accounts relating to illegal foreign and domestic terrorism activities. All materials have been safely  uploaded to legal counsel. Congress and Military authorities have been notified of this.

Conclusion

This interview has prompted me to issue my own warning:

WARNING: The leadership of our present administration is a criminal enterprise. They have completely forsaken their oath of office. Administration officials are guilty of violating every precept of the United States Constitution. They have engaged in massive lying to the American people, and have absconded with American taxpayer money in order to enrich their corporate and bankster benefactors. They will not hesitate to install a brutal form of martial law in which untold numbers of American citizens will lose their lives and they are practicing for this eventuality, right now, through Jade Helm. These criminals in suits will think nothing about sending our children off to war to die in order to increase the bottom line of the banksters. They will dress up this coming war as the patriotic thing to do. However, patriotism only serves to conceal the underlying and insatiable lust for power and wealth. This administration does not serve the needs of the people, we are its subjects and soon to be its slaves. Scott Bennett has only scratched the bare surface of how bad it is going to get here in the land of the free and the former home of the brave. I weep for the loss of my nation. Long live the King, the King is dead.

protes-blacks-police-dogs-60

By Garikai Chengu

Black people in America live in a police-state-within-a-state. The African American police state exercises its authority over the Black minority through an oppressive array of modern day lynchings by the police, increasing for-profit mass incarceration and the government sanctioned surveillance and assassination of Black leaders. The African American police state is unquestionably a modern day crime against humanity.

The first modern police forces in America were Slave Patrols and Night Watches, which were both designed to control the behaviors of African Americans.

Historian Victor Kappeler notes that in 1704, the colony of Carolina developed the nation’s first Slave Patrol. Historical literature is clear that prior to the Civil War a legally sanctioned police force existed for the sole purpose of oppressing the slave population and protecting the property and interests of white slave owners. The glaring similarities between the eighteenth century Slave Patrols and modern American police brutality in the Black community are too salient to dismiss or ignore.

America was founded as a slave holding republic and slaves did not take too kindly to being enslaved and they often rebelled, becoming enemy’s of the state. Slave Patrols were created in order to interrogate and persecute Blacks, who were out and about, without any due process or formal investigation. To this day, police do not serve and protect the Black community, they treat Blacks as inherently criminal and sub-human.

Ever since the first police forces were established in America, lynchings have been the linchpin of the African American police state.

The majority of Americans believe that lynchings are an outdated form of racial terrorism, which blighted American society up until the end of the era of Jim Crow laws; however, America’s proclivity towards the unbridled slaughter of African Americans has only worsened over time. The Guardian newspaper recently noted that historians believe that during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century on average two African-Americans were lynched every week.

Compare this with incomplete data compiled by the FBI that shows that a Black person is killed by a white police officer more than twice a week, and it’s clear that police brutality in Black communities is getting worse, not better.

Racial terrorism gave birth to America. It should come as no surprise that the state’s law enforcement agents routinely engage in the terrorism of modern day lynchings.

Traditional lynchings were not preceded by judge, jury or trial and were often for the most trivial of reasons such as talking to a white woman, failing to remove a hat or making a sarcastic grin. Modern day lynchings are also not preceded by due process. Numerous Black children like Tamir Rice have been slaughtered by police for trivialities like playing with a toy gun in public.

Lynching does not necessarily mean hanging. It often included humiliation, torture, burning, dismemberment and castration. A lynching was a quintessential American public ritual that often took place in front of large crowds that sometimes numbered in the thousands. Historian Mark Gado notes that, “onlookers sometimes fired rifles and handguns hundreds of times into the corpse while people cheered and children played during the festivities”.

Sensational American journalism, spared the public no detail no matter how horrible, and in 1899 the Springfield Weekly described a lynching by chronicling how,

“the Negro was deprived of his ears, fingers and genital parts of his body. He pleaded pitifully for his life while the mutilation was going on…before the body was cool, it was cut to pieces, the bones crushed into small bits…the Negro’s heart was cut into several pieces, as was also his liver…small pieces of bones went for 25 cents…”.

Such graphic accounts were the norm in the South, and photos, were regularly taken of the lynched bodies on display and made into postcards that were sent all over the country.

Nowadays, the broader American public participates in modern day lynchings by sharing videos that go viral of police officers slaying Black men, women and children. By opting not to censor the graphic content of police killing Blacks, today’s videos in the media serve the same purpose as the detailed written accounts of yesteryear by adding to the psychological suffering of the African American. Such viral graphic accounts also desensitize the white community to such an extent that empowers white policemen to do more.

A hallmark of twentieth century fascist police states, such as Italy under Mussolini or Franco’s Spain, is the lack of police accountability for their crimes. In spite of extremely egregious circumstances surrounding all lynchings and many police killings, police are rarely held liable.

The United Nations Human Rights Committee recently issued a report on human rights abuses in the United States which roundly condemned the epidemic of police brutality. It stated: “The Committee is concerned about the still high number of fatal shootings by police which has a disparate impact on African Americans”.

In modern America, the African American police state assassinates the Black victim twice. Once by way of lynching and again to assassinate the victim’s character so as to justify the public execution. All too often a Black victim’s school record, employment status and social media presence are dragged by the media into the court of public opinion, as if any of it has any baring on whether an agent of the state has the right to lynch a Black U.S. citizen.

Arbitrary arrest and mass incarceration have been quintessential elements of police states from East Germany to Augusto Pinochet’s Chile.

The United States right now incarcerates more African-Americans as a percentage than South Africa did at the height of Apartheid.

A Senate hearing on the Federal Bureau of Prisons reported that the American prison population hovered around 25,000 throughout the 1900s, until the 1980′s when America suddenly experienced a massive increase in the inmate population to over a quarter million. The cause was Ronald Reagan’s War on Drugs which intentionally, and disproportionately targeted Blacks. The War on Drugs is now the African America police state’s main propaganda justification for police brutality and judicial discrimination against Blacks.

One out of three African American males will be arrested and go through the American injustice system at some point in their lives, primarily for nonviolent drug charges, despite studies revealing that white youth use drugs at higher rates than their Black counterparts.

For decades, the African-American crime rate has been falling but Black imprisonment rates have consistently soared. Aside from the War on Drugs, the rise in prison population may have another less publicized cause: gradual privatization of the prison industry, with its profits-over-justice motives. If the beds aren’t filled, states are required to pay the prison companies for the empty space, which means taxpayers are largely left to deal with the bill that might come from lower crime and imprisonment rates.

Private prisons were designed by the rich and for the rich. The for-profit prison system depends on imprisoning Blacks for its survival. Much in the same way the United States was designed.

After all, more Black men are in prison or jail, on probation or parole than were enslaved in 1850 before the Civil War began.

The history of Nazi Germany’s Gestapo has many parallels to what U.S. law enforcement in the Black community has become.

The infamous “stop-and-frisk” policies that allow the New York Police Department to stop you based on suspicion are Nazi-like. Latinos and Blacks make up 84 percent of all those stopped, although they make up respectively 29 and 23 percent of New York City’s population. Furthermore, statistics show that NYPD officers are far more likely to use physical force against Blacks and Latinos during stops.

The Gestapo operated without any judicial review by state imposed law, putting them above the law.

The FBI’s counterintelligence programs (COINTELPRO) of the 1950’s, 60s, and 70s formed one of the most infamous domestic initiatives in U.S. history, targeting Black organizations and individuals whom the FBI saw as threatening the racist, capitalist status quo.

COINTELPRO was a series of covert, and often illegal, government projects aimed at surveying, infiltrating, discrediting, and brutalizing Black communities.

After COINTELPRO director William C. Sullivan concluded in a 1963 memo that Martin Luther King, Jr. was “the most dangerous Negro in the future of this nation,” he wrote: “it may be unrealistic to limit [our actions against King] to legalistic proofs that would stand up in court or before Congressional Committees.”

The FBI waged an intense war against Martin Luther King Jr. The African American police state’s law enforcement agents bugged his hotel rooms, tried to provoke IRS investigations against him, and harassed magazines that published articles about him. In 1999, a civil trial concluded that United States law enforcement agents were responsible for Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination.

The perpetuation of the African American police state is a modern day crime against humanity. The ongoing protests and uprisings in Black communities are a direct and just response to centuries of worsening incarceration, modern day lynchings and systematic second class citizenship. Far from being a “post-racial” nation, American race relations are at a new low. Simmering discontent in Black communities will continue to rise towards a dangerous boiling point unless and until the African American police state is exposed and completely dismantled.

Bring-on Community Self Empowerment, Councils of Wise Elders and Benign Leadership

by Julian Rose

Contributor, ZenGardner.com

We in the West have lived with this thing called ‘democracy’ for a good few centuries now. It has been an important experiment, but one which has, in the end, succeeded in swallowing its own tail rather than leading society to a better place. Now its time is up and we have the task of putting   something genuinely better in its place.

The most well known definition of democracy – but by no means the first – is enshrined in the Gettysburg Address of November 1863. It proclaims democracy as ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people’ which  – maybe for good reason – laid a strong emphasis on ‘people’.

But here also lay its weakness; people (it turned out) had other ambitions that this form of self rule was ill equipped to address. Nor did they particularly want to be responsible for deciding and managing the intricacies of the experiment that they had signed-up to. ‘The majority’, that is.

And it is this word ‘majority’ which encapsulates the failure of democracy, because, as some of us will have noticed, ‘the majority’ have never yet been possessed of the vision and wisdom necessary to move society towards a meritorious goal.

At best ‘the majority’ have created some from of social justice which was not around under the leadership of a regicide (king/queen) unless such happened to have a social conscience. Democracy thus became akin to a personal insurance policy, in which one signed-up to the policy and paid the annual cover – via taxation. In return, one got a type of guarantee that one would have certain ‘inalienable rights’, backed by ‘the law’.  A law supposedly designed to support this form of self rule, but in reality providing a cosy revenue absorbing niche for the same exploitive elitist element that had been around well before the democratic experiment came along.

As it turned out, what the majority actually wanted was based upon self interest and not a vision of a better society for all. So give ‘the majority’ the right to decide upon who they wish to run their country – and the one’s they actually elect will be those who have gone the most out of their way to claim ‘to have their interests at heart’. The interests of ‘the majority’.

A society under the mantle of ‘democracy’ therefore never evolves. Instead it simply revolves around the wishes and the fears of the electorate. The wish to be ‘looked after’ and the fear of not being looked after. ‘The majority’ simply elect a bunch of baby-sitters so that they can go out and play, leaving the actual responsibility for the shape and function of society to others – mostly those who enjoy flirting with the power that has been granted unto them.

The electorate then complain loudly when things get done by those in whom they entrusted power – which fail to live up to their fawning pre-election promises. It is a constantly repeating pattern which still shows no sign of abating. It is ‘mob rule’ in action: the undirected, unaware voice of a majority who readily succumb to the powers of the hidden persuaders.

The people, when this means ‘a majority’ of the the people, have never yet, throughout the course of history, been in possession of the wisdom and vision which are the necessary prerequisites of an evolving society. A society asked to raise its level of awareness, consciousness and responsibility.

The democratic experiment is thus an entirely inappropriate  tool for getting out of – and going beyond – the mess we are currently in. It is simple naivety which is on display at demonstrations where placards are held-up announcing that such and such ‘is not democratic’ : ‘TTIP  is not democratic’, ‘the WTO is not democratic’, ‘tax avoidance is undemocratic’ etc.

Over the years, democracy has formed itself around an unshakeable alliance with capitalism. Capitalism is generally held up as ‘democracy in action’, particularly in relation to ‘the free market’ as a self adjusting silent voice of the people.

It is indeed in the market place that ‘the majority’ have put their faith; and left those who claim to
have mastered its intricacies to operate according to the nefarious rules of competition and greed that dominate the neo-liberal global economy which is the capitalist empire’s crown jewels.

An economy where multi-national corporate sweat shops in Third World countries can give ‘the majority’ exactly what they want: ‘cheap clothes’ ‘cheap food, ‘cheap cars’. That my friends, is our famous democracy in action…and those who say “that isn’t democracy” fail to realise that the majority voted-in those who condone and execute these deeply exploitive policies. Voted-in via ‘election by majority’ vote: the cracked cornerstone of the democracy experiment.

Not only this, but when challenged by someone touting the merits of communism, the answer comes “but communism isn’t democratic” thus wittingly or unwittingly, holding up the flag of democracy as though it was a symbol of a free and progressive society.

Like religion and like the Mafia, democracy has provided a formula which offers protection for those who prescribe to a skewed system of control by the few. It puts a nice gloss on that which is, in reality, a sophisticated game of double deception.

A deception which has its roots in the the electorate’s abdication of control over its own destiny. Choosing instead to play victim to a system it helped put in place.

Today, eyes are slowly opening to what it is we have saddled ourselves with. Be it under the name of Conservative, Socialist, Liberal, Republican, Democrat or whatever – it makes not the slightest difference. They are simply entertaining variations of the same theme, and that theme remains mastered and controlled by a shadowy elite which quietly pulls all the main strings of power and will allow the game to be played strictly within its own terms – and no further

So where do we go from here?

By we, I mean that smallish minority who are capable of rational thought informed by vision and wisdom.

This group cannot exert any serious authority upon the society around it, because – in a democracy – a small minority cannot form the majority necessary to becoming an elected administrative body. But at least we are not going to deny that, should a council of wise elders be at the helm of regional, national and global affairs, the world would be a different place. The value systems would be reversed. Instead of money, power and selfish self interest dominating the scene, we would have humane values , deep ethics, and genuine justice as the main prerogatives, within an eclectic, multi ethnic society.

There are still tribal societies that operate on such a system. They are called ‘primitive’ and are vindictively linked to a scary voodoo world of witch doctors and unruly shamans. Every attempt has been made to wipe them off the map – both physically and by our ‘democratic’ Western value system’s high minded judgemental view on this ancient, time tested from of ‘leadership by the wise’.

As we once again find our true spiritual footing, our thoughts naturally turn back to this form of society by the wise, because it is an organic response to our deeper, actual and non superficial needs.

No wonder the North American Indian tribes were wiped out or driven into special ‘reserves'; likewise the native South American tribes and the Aboriginals of Australia. The ‘democracy’ that supplanted them could have no truck with such deeply rooted and nature attuned cultures.

The capitalist free market needed to exploit their sacred territories and rip out the uranium, gold and all other precious metals which, while under the ground, informed the vibratory geography of their holy sites.

The supposed ‘civilisation’ which plundered the native territories, was largely a Judeo-Christian fabrication. One with a strongly Eurocentric bias and a penchant for grandeur and unashamed material wealth. Nothing of ancient tribal or pagan origins had any place in this great show of unabashed self importance. And it is from this tradition that most people reading this essay will probably have received their education – or more properly said: indoctrination.

Yet along with its pride and arrogance, there have been some idealistic ventures in various parts of the world into territories that bear some resemblance to ‘leadership by the wise’ and these belong to the category of ‘benign dictatorships’. Fidel Castro of Cuba; Frederik the Great of Prussia; Mustafa Kamal Atutuk of Turkey; the king of Bhutan, are cited examples. Dictatorship is far less complicated than our form of democracy – but only if it is ‘benign’ can it be deemed genuinely superior.

A number of great spiritual leaders have filled this role of benevolent dictator during times of national crisis. Their followers seeing that they possess the qualities that combine love and leadership – consequently feel happy to live under their guidance. Great leaders always encourage the best to come forth in mankind, by-passing power and self prestige in favour of leading by example.

This form of ‘leading by example’ runs closer to universal spiritual principles of divine leadership than anything democracy has or can, ever come up with. When earthed and coupled with village level self determination and a council of wise elders – it probably constitutes the best role model we have to guide humanity through the crisis that is now upon us – and only likely to worsen. That is until a majority of human beings finally recognise themselves as divine entities – and therefore only answerable to the Supreme.

None the less, it is beholden for all of us who are both willing and able to see a bigger picture, to now give serious amounts of time and energy to thinking through the basic tenets that need to be put in place so as to bring about the world that we know must replace the current crumbling dystopia.

We must, as an imperative, lay the foundations of the life to come even before the present fiasco has reached its lowest point. That is the true meaning of taking responsibility for our destinies.

Health Impact News and Medical Kidnap staff

Throughout history, people have taken a stand for their faith which oftentimes resulted in unfavorable consequences for the individuals. For disabled veteran David Owen and his wife Teresa, their refusal to stop practicing their Christian faith was ultimately used as a rationale in Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) seizing custody of their two special needs daughters, Angel and Catrina. According to Teresa Owen:

”Our daughters were wrongfully removed from our home because we refused to stop attending church and teaching our daughters about Christ. Angel and Catrina are being wrongfully kept out of our home, abused, and medically neglected. We are still fighting for our daughters and trying to help other families.”

Their children were taken at the beginning of 2011. To this day, they are not home, and Teresa and David are fighting to regain custody of their daughters.

Mitochondrial Myopathy, Autism, and Seizures

Both the Owen daughters, along with their mother, suffer from Mitochondrial Myopathy, the same disorder that doctors diagnosed in Justina Pelletier. Her medical kidnap case made national news in 2014. Three of the Owen family were diagnosed with the disorder by a military clinic in 2001.

In addition, Angel, the older sibling, also has autism and suffers from seizures.  Their mother has learned that disabilities like theirs often result in increased funding for the school district in which the students reside as long as they are in public school.

Angel began the school year in August of 2009 at the El Dorado Middle School, much like any other school year. Teresa Owen reports having many concerns for her daughter’s safety at the school after the semester began. Once when visiting the school, Teresa reports witnessing Paraprofessionals (Paras) slapping the hands of children. She promptly reported the incident and filed a complaint with the school.

Another visit to the school on February 22, 2010, became the turning point for Angel’s education. Teresa reports that a gym teacher told her that her daughter had fallen down the stairs on at least four separate occasions, and one of those times, she was actually pushed down the stairs. They were not notified. This was alarming to her because Angel’s doctor had previously sent a note to the school, ordering that she was to use the elevator, not the stairs. The doctor had also ordered Angel to be accompanied by a Para when walking to and from classes. Her mitochondrial condition and her seizures place her at increased risk for falls.

Family Decides to Homeschool

Teresa reports withdrawing Angel from the middle school shortly after, choosing instead to homeschool. She reports filling out the required withdrawal form and informing the district of her intent to homeschool, per Kansas protocol. She researched her curriculum options, and put together an eclectic program of resources specifically designed for special needs students.

Before Teresa began homeschooling Angel, she read at a 2nd grade level. By mid-summer, under her mother’s teaching, Angel had already progressed to reading at a 4th grade level.

As she connected with other families of special needs children through the Special Olympics that spring, she reports:

“I was told about [DCF] targeting special needs kids for foster care.”

That appears to the Owens to be exactly what happened. In June of 2010, the Kansas DCF took the Owen family to court for truancy of Angel, accusing the Owens of not having Angel enrolled in school, even though they were legally homeschooling. The judge ordered the Owen family to have their daughter enrolled in either an approved homeschool program or a public school for the upcoming school year. Teresa and David Owen made the decision to enroll her in a different school than the one where she had previously experienced so many problems. Angel was accepted to Haysville District Middle School, and Teresa submitted the required documentation on August 30, 2010.

Special Needs Child Removed From the Home by Court Order

The very next day, on August 31, 2010, a court hearing took place in which DCF evaluated Angel’s current school enrollment status. Teresa Owen explained that her daughter had been accepted and enrolled in a local school, but the truancy officer in the court reportedly stated on the record that Angel Owen was not enrolled in any school at that time. The court ruled that Angel was truant. She was immediately seized by DCF and placed in foster care.

Since she was taken from her home, Angel experienced an increase in seizure activity. On September 17, 2010, Angel’s physician ordered lab tests and an EEG. The physician called Teresa Owen at 11:00 pm that same night with concerns over her test results.

Teresa reports that the physician submitted a letter to the judge stating that if Angel is kept out of her home environment, she is at risk for status epilepticus, which can result in a fatal seizure.

Because of these safety concerns, an urgent hearing to review the case was scheduled for September 28, 2010. Angel was sent home with her parents at this hearing. However, she remained in State’s custody, and case managers were ordered to make several visits weekly to the home. This was the last court hearing at Butler County. The case was then moved to Sedgwick County when the Owens purchased a home and relocated. The girls were both enrolled in public school at this time.

Case Manager Tells Family to Stop Attending Church

Because of the girls’ mitochondrial condition, Teresa says that they require a full 10 hours of sleep per night. The family is devoutly Christian, and has always attended church services on Sundays and Wednesday nights, and some Sunday night services. The next day after any evening service is often more difficult for them than it would be for someone without their condition. Previous schools had reportedly had no problem excusing tardies on the basis of religious activity. However, in October, one case manager told the Owen family that they were to no longer attend church because of the tardies.

More Issues with Public School

By late November of 2010, mounting concerns with incidents in the public school caused the family once again to consider homeschooling the girls. These included neglect by school officials in following the girls’ individual education plans (IEPs), as well as Angel’s ongoing fear and reluctance to go to school. Her mother says that Angel was even experiencing anxiety attacks about attending school.

Homeschooling Again

In December of 2010, the Owens pulled the girls out of public school once again. This time the Owen family decided to use a tried and true faith-based homeschool curriculum called Alpha Omega. Angel and Catrina were enrolled in Owen Family Home School and began on December 15, 2010.

Disagreement, Corruption, and Threats from Case Workers

A case manager showed up early in December. According to Teresa, she informed the family that she had learned they were still attending church. She threatened that, if they kept going to church, they would take their kids.

Another case manager reviewed the homeschool curriculum and materials in early December and she was satisfied. According to the family, she explained that one of the positive aspects of the Alpha Omega curriculum was that it offered many ways to teach lessons, and Alpha Omega has special education staff to help parents.

The case manager who took issue with the kids attending church showed up unexpectedly just before Christmas, even though by this time they were only supposed to have visits from the other case manager. She looked at the homeschool curriculum and reportedly told the Owen family that this program would never fly because of the faith based teaching. She told the family they would be removing the kids right away.

Teresa protested the decision and claimed the state had no just cause for removal, only to be told by the social worker that she could simply make up an accusation and have her kids removed. Teresa Owen told Health Impact News that one thing that stuck out most in her mind about the case was that:

”They constantly told us they could make up believable lies to take the children.”

When she addressed her concerns with the case manager and the issue of church attendance to her superior, she allegedly received a chilling response:

”I was told by the head case manager in charge of making the final decision regarding our girls, that your children are never coming home, another victory for me.”

Even so, the girls remained in the home through Christmas and New Years, but that didn’t last long.

Children Seized by DCF, and DCF Ignores Angel’s Sickness

In late January of 2011, Angel became very ill, experiencing frequent vomiting and sickness that seemed to be getting worse. On January 20, Teresa and David Owen were preparing to take her to the doctor for evaluation when social workers and the police showed up with a court order to remove the children from the home. The concerned parents protested, stating that Angel was sick and needed immediate medical attention. The case managers told the police that they would take the girls directly to the hospital. So the parents agreed and drove to the hospital and waited.

The case managers never showed up with their two daughters.

A few days later Kansas DCF took the family to court on January 25, 2011 . It was determined in court that Angel was truant from school for too many days, and both children were ordered into state care. Teresa Owen reports she was using a homeschool curriculum compliant with state regulations at the time Angel was charged of being truant.

According to Kansas law, a child can only be removed from a home on the basis of truancy if they are at least 13 years of age. Catrina, age 11 at the time of removal, was also taken. The Owen’s were told she was being removed under Angel’s case.

Controversial Diagnosis and Unsafe Foster Care

Within the first couple of months the girls were in foster care, Angel was hospitalized on two occasions. During one of the hospitalizations, the physician reported a multitude of medical issues, including dehydration, poor kidney function, and grand mal seizures – even though the parents were informed that all tests came back normal. There was a court order in place which prevented Teresa from visiting her in the hospital or she would be arrested. A broken-hearted Teresa told Health Impact News:

“My daughter Angel told me, ‘You don’t love me. You couldn’t possibly love me, because you didn’t come visit me in the hospital.’”

Angel also had an emergency room visit after a large TV reportedly fell on her head while in foster care. Despite her seizure history, no CT scan was ordered following the head injury.

Munchausen by Proxy?

Teresa Own has treated both her daughters for their symptoms related to Mitochondrial Myopathy for a number of years. Despite the daughters’ specialist reports, the diagnosis of Mitochondrial Myopathy was removed from both of the girls’ medical charts. Teresa states that, to this day, the girls are still suffering from symptoms of this disorder that are being ignored. The state has accused Teresa of making up this medical condition and charged her with having Munchausen by Proxy, even though all three received their diagnosis from a military clinic back east, when David was still serving in the Army National Guard, following a long career in the Air Force.

Along with separation from their parents, the girls have also been separated from their therapy dogs, Blacky and Tippy. Teresa reports that they still cry for their pets.

The last court hearing was held in Sedgwick County in January 2012, with no future plans to reunite this family, despite the family reporting that they have met all conditions. While David is allowed some visitation, Teresa has been forbidden to see her beloved daughters since November 2013.

Teresa and David insist that they will not give up the fight for their daughters. They believe that the bottom line for their children being taken is that they represent a great deal of money to the state by being in state custody. The Owens are currently taking three actions in hopes of regaining custody of Catrina and Angelica:

  1. They have filed an appeal in Kansas Appeals Court.
  2. They have filed a federal lawsuit.
  3. They have filed a petition with the United Nations offices for Human Rights – CIDH, Office for High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR), and Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) based on violation of human rights.

If you watch the emotional video below at the end of this article, you will hear Teresa explain that she felt like “a traitor” by having to file a complaint in the UN against her own country. But because Congress and the federal government is doing nothing to help them with the abuses and corruption in Kansas, they felt they had few options remaining.

Reaching Out To Help Others

Teresa Owen has reached out to others who are dealing with Children Protective Services, including the Verzosa family, whose story was originally covered by Health Impact News here. She is happy to offer her help and advice, and blogs regularly about CPS corruption.

She is also going to Capitol Hill on June 18 to talk to legislators about Mitochondrial disorders, as well as about children being unjustly taken by CPS.

Teresa Owen with pix of girls

Teresa vows to never stop fighting for her beloved daughters.

Teresa offers the following advice for any parent in a situation with Child Protective Services (CPS):

”Parents need to keep documentation. If social workers don’t allow you to videotape encounters, take pictures before and after they come. If you feel threatened, you can use video for your protection, but it won’t be allowed to be submitted in court. Keep a journal! Keep all court documents.”

Finding legal help has always been a challenge for this family. When the state involvement began for the Owen family, Teresa reached out to the Disability Rights Center Kansas (DRCK) for legal assistance, only to be denied help with her case involving her daughters with disabilities. Teresa also reports that doctors and attorneys have been threatened that if they help this family, they could lose their license to practice. At this time, they are pursuing all legal matters representing themselves with free Christian attorneys’ legal advice.

Teresa has also reached out to help others who are in similar situations and started the Facebook page Protect America’s Children from the Hidden Predators.

Freedom 01

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

As we discuss the importance of oath keeping it is only fitting we start with the Sheriff. Elected (not hired) by the community as a representative of said community with a responsibility to protect and serve that community.

The Sheriff is duty bound to the Constitution and serves at the wishes of the constituents who elect him. He exercises the ultimate authority of lawful matters within his boundaries or jurisdiction.

If and when the SHTF (and actually at all times) this should be We The Peoples first line of defense against unconstitutional interdiction, by any tyrannical government, into our lives. We must reach out to them, find out where they stand on the Constitution as well as all issues of freedom, rights and liberty … and if necessary educate them, replace them, or support them accordingly.

This Line In The Sand against tyranny does not fall solely on our Sheriffs, although we would hope that their community knowledge and ties will put them at the forefront of any such happening. This task of protecting the Constitutional rights and freedoms of We The people is shared by all oath takers including local, state and federal peace officers, active duty and ex-service members, and all who swear an oath to the Constitution.

So lets go there. Three organizations of note that immediately come to mind are as follows …

################

Constitutional Sheriffs & Peace Officers of America

“We will take America back, Sheriff by Sheriff, County by County, State by State.” -Sheriff Richard Mack

WHAT DO WE DO?

CSPOA assembles Sheriffs, Peace Officers and Citizens who understand the grave implications of our eroding Constitutional protections. Whether it’s an illegal checkpoint violating the 4th Amendment, 2nd Amendment intrusions affecting your defense of your home or family, or ANY other infringement of your freedom, CSPOA is on the front line defending your rights and Liberty.

################

Many of these individuals are OATH KEEPERS, another outstanding organization we must support and help to grow …

About Oath Keepers

Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders  who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial.

Oath Keepers reaches out to both current serving and veterans to remind them of their oaths, to teach them more about the Constitution they swore to defend, and to inspire them to defend it. See below for details on how we do that.

Their motto is “Not on our watch!

################

TLB: Watch the above video … show it to your friends, neighbors, local police force or sheriff, share it with your family. Find out how those you depend on think … and if necessary EDUCATE THEM.

And if those who see this do not agree, or push back against all reason, in spite of your best attempts … These are not your friends or anyone you can depend on when the SHTF. A fact you will discover quite readily when they are complicit in the tyranny to ensure their safety and comfort by offering up YOURS!

################

Along with such (above) notable organizations is an outstanding organization TLB is proud to partner with. NLA leads the way in this task from a judicial aspect.

National Liberty Alliance

NLA-logo

Please read the following from The National Liberty Alliance with special attention on the attached PDFs. Take the time to visit their website … There is so much valuable information there and we all need to be involved in the rescuing of America!

The National Liberty Alliance: Memos to the Sheriff

The following PDF’s are copies of a series of memos to all American Sheriffs in an effort to educate them and prepare them for the inevitable:

President Kennedy said;

A revolution is coming – a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough – but a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect its character; we cannot alter its inevitability”.

This great fallen hero and martyr before giving his life went on to say;

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable”.

It is at this precipice we stand today, it is for this purpose we are here today and we resolutely set our face, and by the grace of our God we will succeed today:

################

TLB Highly recommends you visit the above organizations and do what you can do to help, because Freedom or Liberty is never Free. It starts with what we are willing to do to regain or maintain and preserve it. It is through the strength in numbers of those of us who support them that their voices and actions grow in strength!

BUT …

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams

What can one man do

5th-column

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

Most are familiar with the concept Fifth Column insurgency in which a terrorist group lives among and blends in with its intended victims until the moment to strike is at hand and then they carry out their mission with a vengeance against the indigenous people. The Viet Cong is one of the best examples of these tactics in recent American history.

Fifth Column Insurgents Inside of the United States

Most countries who have Fifth Column forces within their country, are normally only dealing with a single force. The United States is dealing with multiple insurgent forces at the same time.

1. Yesterday, I reviewed Judicial Watch’s revelation regarding an ISIS base camp 8 miles from El Paso and that these ISIS members are making their way across our border with the help of the drug cartel coyotes.

2. For the past three years, I have documented the presence of foreign troops on our soil who are training for martial law.

3.  In the summer of 2014, I documented how the Border Patrol were ordered by DHS to ignore MS-13 members who were crossing the border. MS-13 is utilized by the Sinoloa Cartel as assassins who primarily target uncooperative public officials and journalists.

As if the presence of these three insurgent groups inside of the United States was not bad enough, we are witnessing the development of two more insurgent groups and the government and its intelligence operations are doing nothing to interdict these two major threats to national security.

4. We are now witnessing ISIS recruiters operating domestically as they are recruiting American college students.

5. The massive refugee resettlement programs, run by the UN, through the State Department threaten to undermine domestic tranquility in at least 190 cities. The State Department is a s”dirty” as dirty can be. Of course, what would one expect after several years of leadership under Hillary Clinton?

The quality of life in America is about to take a sharp turn downwards and here is why.

Another ISIS Threat to National Security

What would you say if I told you that an ISIS recruiter was recently operating out in the open in Seattle? Would you find that impossible to believe? Would you think that the FBI would have moved to immediately arrest the ISIS recruiter operating on American soil? Neither one  of these assumptions is accurate.

Sputnik News and another foreign news entity have discovered that the ISIS recruiter is a mid-20’s journalism student who goes to football games, eats cheeseburgers and in her spare time she recruits American college students to ISIS for the purpose of waging  a war on behalf of Muslim extremism.

Subsequently, the ISIS recruiter’s identity has been publicly blown and she has fled Seattle. However, it was not the FBI who discovered this 5th column recruiter operating within our midst. Amazingly, it was news reporters from the United Kingdom. Here is News Channel 4 original tweet on the subject.

___

Unmasked: Senior ISIS agent is from Seattle… loves pizza and the Denver Broncos

isis female recruiter_____

The  UK reporters identified the ISIS recruiter  as a woman named Rawdah Abdisalaam and she hails from Somalia. She did much of her recruiting through twitter @_UmmWaqqas. She operated a second twitter account, @Rawdah_Abdi and @Rodaa27 and she had 8,000 followers. Her twitter accounts have now been deactivated.

Reporters, from News Channel 4,  in the United Kingdom, were following her ISIS recruitment activities on twitter. From pictures she posted on twitter, the reporters figured out that she was doing her recruitment from Seattle. The pictures which led to the unveiling of this ISIS recruiter are featured below.

These pictures on twitter allowed UK reporters to figure out the identity and location of the ISIS recruiter.

This female ISIS recruiter may like football, but she likes mayhem and terrorist inspired violence even more as she tweeted support after the shocking filmed murder of the Jordanian pilot who the Islamic State burned in a cage in which she proclaimed  “an eye for an eye if you ask me!”

It’s been clear since ISIS burst onto the scene with territorial gains that took Western powers by surprise that ISIS had a unique and effective social media strategy combining a seemingly inexhaustible network of twitter accounts with slickly produced recruitment and propaganda videos. Now this strategy of recruitment is being unleashed in the United States right under our American noses.

“ISIS Recruiters Are On Nearly Every Campus”

There is an Islamic couple I have used as consultants on past stories that I have written on Sharia Law and other nefarious Islamic activities on American soil. For the record, they detest Islamic extremism and they merely want to be left alone and practice their religion in private.

After learning about the female ISIS recruiter, I asked the couple how common is this practice and they seemed surprised that I was not aware that most college campuses in the United States have ISIS recruiters.

The Omnipresent ISIS Threat

ISIS routinely issues threats against the U.S. In a recent video series, Vice Media embedded with ISIS militants, and an ISIS militant told a Vice camera, “God willing, we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”

ISIS, by design, is everywhere. The following was tweeted from an apparently pro-ISIS Twitter handle @sunna_rev on August 9, 2014

As you continue to watch football, realize that they are here. They exploit every situation and they are recruiting our youth.

Arrest of ISIS Militants in US Indicates Rising Risk of Attack on America

NBC’s Predictive Programming TV Series

In a stunning case of predictive programming, the NBC hit series, State of Affairs, shows exactly what ISIS is up to as they are recruiting college American youth in order to carry out large-scale domestic terrorism.

State of Affairs is particularly telling as and American terrorist recruit, “Stacy Dover”, blows up a CIA safehouse killing a U.S. Senator, a CIA agent and seriously wounding the CIA Director. The name of the terrorist group, in the show, is not ISIS, but it may as well be as the show name for ISIS is “Ar Rissalah”.  The elite are telling us what they are going to do with ISIS.

The True ISIS Threat Was Manufactured By the CIA

Aaron Klein, an author for WorldNetDaily, has reported that members of ISIS fighting against the al-Assad government in Syria were trained by U.S. military instructors in Jordan. We also know that ISIS received its weapons from cast of military supplies left by U.S. troops in Iraq. By law, these weapons caches were to be destroyed before the troops redeployed to the United States.  ISIS is clearly a CIA psyops that has two goals:

1. Take Syria’s Assad out of power.

2. Become the next excuse on why we must continue to hand over our rights to the government to protect us.

Recruiting American Youth

Your children are vulnerable to become recruited by ISIS as witnessed by the three teenage Colorado girls who wanted to join ISIS as a good opportunity to study how the militant group recruits young people in the West, U.S. law enforcement officials told CNN. Again, as in Ferguson, American youth are being recruited through social media. I issue this warning now to the parents of America: Know what your children are doing. Monitor their social media and forget the lame argument that they have privacy rights. Nonsense! You have parental responsibilities.

Fifth Column Insurgents and Jade Helm

Coincidentally, or maybe not so coincidentally, Jade Helm has announced its intentions to carry out infiltration techniques and to “blend in” with the locals. We, in the Independent Media have deduced that the extraction of political undesirables and the imposition of martial law are the main operational objectives of Jade Helm as evidenced by the well-documented extraction drills held in Ft. Lauderdale on March 27th.

Just how will Jade Helm forces fit into this unfolding scenario involving treason and treachery? Some people I speak with hold out hope that American forces will extract the Fifth Column insurgents in the Jade Helm exercises and that the rest of us are totally misreading the intention of Jade Helm. Do you believe in miracles? This leads to two possibilities.

1. Jade Helm will play the role of hero and change sides and rid the country of these Fifth Column forces. I entertained the idea for a few seconds until CBS News put out an article, two days ago, in which they defended Jade Helm as one of the most patriotic activities that we could hope to see on American soil. CBS News is Rockefeller territory and as such, should be considered to be an enemy of the American people. 

2. Jade Helm is partnering with these insurgent forces in what will become a nightmare for the American people. I previously reported that one of my sources revealed the Special Forces contacts he had inside of Jade Helm were concerned because they were completely compartmentalized and being isolated from long range mission objectives. Now we know why! How many American soldiers, if they suddenly realized that they were partnering with terrorists and foreign entities to bring an end to the American way of life as we have known it, would actually continue forward? Therefore, it is clear that our military forces will join with these insurgent groups, if not on the battlefield, but in operational mission goals and, at least at first, will be ignorant as to the scope of the mission. 

Conclusion

I am coming across evidence which demonstrates that ISIS is being established as a domestic terrorist police force inside of the United States in conjunction with other terror groups. These other terror groups, who will no doubt join these Fifth Column insurgents are part of the Resettlement program for refugees which is being run by the UN and this will be the subject of a future article. By the way, would you care to guess the religion of 92% of the resettlement population? This will be the topic of Sunday’s article.

Meanwhile, there is a plethora of methods to monitor your child’s twitter account, Facebook and text messages. Simply Google “Monitoring your child’s social media”, because the ISIS “beheaders” and friends are everywhere.

Kennedy May Willey after being transferred to UCSF in San Francisco. Source: Pray for Kennedy May Facebook Page

Contributed to TLB and written by:

Health Impact News and Medical Kidnap staff

Kennedy May Willey’s first seizure took place when she was nine months old, on December 26, 2008. It occurred 8 days after receiving her DTaP vaccination. The seizure lasted over 40 minutes and entailed a dramatic helicopter ride to the nearest major hospital in Texas which was over an hour away. Fortunately, little Kennedy rebounded and within a few hours the doctors wanted to send her home, saying that the seizure that had nearly killed her was a “normal febrile seizure.”

Her mother Dawn knew there was nothing “normal” about it and insisted that they keep Kennedy overnight for observation. A nurse told her she was paranoid, but within five minutes she was seizing again.

Dravet Syndrome Diagnosis

Eventually, two pediatricians, one allergist, one cardiologist and no less than six neurologists later, Kennedy was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome. This was not good news. For parent or child, Dravet can be a terrifying diagnosis.

The prognosis is anything but encouraging, the mortality rate is exceptionally high — 15-20% — with most dying suddenly while asleep, and seizures are severe, lifelong, and generally bring a host of developmental, behavioral and medical issues affecting every aspect of the child’s life.

Most children with Dravet are given anti-epileptic medications, even though Dravet does not tend to be responsive to medications. After reading story after story of children for whom medications made little to no difference, Kennedy’s mother, Dawn, felt there had to be a better way.

Through a series of fortunate events (apologies to Lemony Snicket), she was led back to her chiropractor and DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!) doctor who was eager to help, and the two struck up a collaborative relationship. Over time, they came to believe that Kennedy, like so many other medically complex children, had a “compromised gut” and if her gut were healed her health could be greatly improved. They started her on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and eventually transitioned to the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet.

“Miraculous” Results through Diet

The results of her diet change approached the miraculous. Dawn estimates that Kennedy’s symptoms improved about 98%, with a huge reduction in frequency, duration, and intensity of her seizures. In addition, they no longer occurred randomly throughout the day, but typically occurred only when she was asleep. Children with Dravet’s are expected to regress from age two onwards due to the tremendous stress the seizures put on the developing nervous system.

Kennedy, however, has been beating the odds. She is now seven years old and generally lives a full “normal” life with her family in California. She attends a regular school, took surfing lessons in Costa Rica, plays tennis and the piano, and loves to swim and ride her bike.

Relapse: Seizures Increase

But life is always a little precarious with a severe chronic illness, and recently the Willey family came face to face with their worst nightmare. Last week Kennedy experienced an increase in seizures. The seizures began “clustering” requiring medical attention.

On Thursday, April 21, she was taken to her local hospital, but they decided she needed to transfer to a larger hospital: Children’s Hospital of California (CHOC) – Orange County. Dawn and her husband, Carl, were upset when they heard the news because they had heard numerous horror stories about the head of neurology at CHOC from other parents and doctors.

From minute one, they say their fears were confirmed. Dr. Mary Zupanc reportedly swept into the room announcing that she was the foremost expert on Dravet. She allegedly bad-mouthed the Willey’s Dravet doctors and refused to believe that, until a few days before, seven-year-old Kennedy had been running on the beach, leading a “normal” seven-year-old life. She allegedly told the Willeys that there were no “normal” un-medicated children with Dravet.

Of course, the Willeys have pictures and videos of their daughter to back up their claims, but they say Dr. Zupanc refused to look at them.

Drug Cocktails Begin and Conditions Worsen

Kennedy was already on two anti-epileptic drugs when Dr. Zupanc added Depakote, a drug that they say had been known to increase Kennedy’s seizures previously. She allegedly went into more cluster seizures and her tongue swelled up. The doctor ordered an EEG, which indicated no seizure activity, but her brain waves were slow.

The Willeys insisted that her “out of it” condition was attributable to the unfamiliar medications. Dr. Zupanc, reportedly not believing the parents’ testimony, insisted there must be some huge underlying problem, probably encephalitis. She allegedly pushed a CT scan and a spinal tap. Kennedy had to be put out for the spinal tap, adding more meds to the cocktail.

On Sunday morning, they allegedly administered more Depakote, which touched off more cluster seizures and a swollen tongue. Clearly evident to the parents, Kennedy was allergic to the medication.

The answer from Neurology? Even more Depakote.

Parents Threatened with CPS

That was when Dawn had had enough. She says she ran in and stepped in front of the nurse who was trying to do as the doctor had ordered. The next thing they knew a neurologist came into the room yelling about getting a court order if they continued interfering with Kennedy’s care. At 11 p.m. that night, a representative from Child Protection Services allegedly knocked on their door and interviewed the underslept, overstressed parents about their “medical neglect” until 1 a.m.

All the while, Kennedy allegedly had been given no food of any kind. Dawn had been begging for a feeding tube since the beginning to help Kennedy with metabolizing all the drugs, but Neurology had convinced them she was in danger of aspirating.

Zealous Doctors Want to Expand Treatment Beyond Dravet

Dr. Zupanc, arrived Monday morning accompanied by a large group of doctors and allegedly announced that there was something wrong with Kennedy other than Dravet, and she would be proceeding with in-depth testing, including another spinal tap and a brain MRI with contrast.

Kennedy was reportedly now having subclinical seizures — the second EEG showed eight 10-second seizures – she said, and that gave her grounds to increase the medications.

Parents Hire Attorneys in Attempt to Leave Hospital

After the CPS visit, the Willeys knew they had to get Kennedy away from CHOC and Dr. Zupanc. They formulated a plan to move her to UCSF in San Francisco and hired an independent medical advocate and two attorneys.

They weren’t sure if they were doing the right thing, though, until they met with the metabolic doctor who allegedly told them that Dr. Zupanc was conducting a ridiculous fishing expedition and that Kennedy’s body was too stressed for another spinal tap.

They realized that they were fighting for Kennedy’s life.

Carl asked the PICU pediatrician if he thought Kennedy was stable enough to be airlifted to another hospital and he said yes.

They expected to leave CHOC that afternoon, but at lunch time word came down that Dr. Zupanc had blocked the transfer saying Kennedy was unfit for travel.  Carl met with the pediatrician saying, “I beg you to save my daughter’s life and release her. You have the power to do this because you are in charge on my daughter’s floor.” The doctor’s response: “You have to remember that after you leave tonight, I’m still going to have to work with her and deal with this.”

Transferred to UCSF in San Francisco

After hours of battle, the doctor finally agreed to release Kennedy. The transfer would happen the next morning. However, delay after delay kept them at the hospital till mid-afternoon, and before they left, Kennedy was given a final high dose of medications, taking her to toxic levels.

Kennedy finally arrived in San Francisco on Wednesday (April 29th) and has reportedly been receiving excellent care since then. She is eating real food and smiling again.

CPS Threats Followed Them to San Francisco

One might think that this would mean the Willeys could breathe a sigh of relief, with their nightmare finally over.

Unfortunately, that does not seem to be the case. Last night (April 30th) Kennedy’s pediatrician at UCSF came to the Willeys and told them that CHOC had called CPS in San Francisco accusing the Willeys of “severe medical neglect,” saying that among other ridiculous charges they had “denied all meds.”

The representative from CPS in San Francisco interviewed the Willeys and agreed with everyone at UCSF that the Willeys were exceptional parents, CHOC’s complaint was “totally unfounded,” constituting blatant harassment, and the case would be closed.

Willeys Want to Warn Other Parents

The Willeys hope this may finally be the end of their nightmare, but they wonder about the next unsuspecting family?

Dr. Zupanc’s information at CHOC can be found here.

Also, the Willeys report that Dr. Maria E. Minon is the Vice President of Medical Affairs at CHOC, and her information can be found here.

The Willeys just want to have the freedom to choose their own medical care and treatment plan without being threatened by CPS because of over-zealous medical authorities who believe their treatments are the only ones available. They do not believe that doctors should try to coerce parents into accepting their methods and pharmaceutical products when other options are available.

usa-police-baltimore-april-28-2015-freddie-gray-protests.jpg460

By John Vibes on April 30, 2015

Baltimore, Maryland – As we reported earlier this week, during the recent riots in Baltimore, rival gang members have called a truce to protect their communities. Police initially panicked when hearing about the truce and put out a warning that gang members were teaming up to “target cops.” It was quickly revealed that these claims were entirely fabricated and that the gang members did not have ill intentions by calling their truce.

Members of the Crips, Bloods and BGF, Baltimore’s three largest gangs, even stood with city council members during a press conference this week. The council members spoke very highly of the gang members and their recent efforts.“These men have been out on the street quelling the senseless violence that has consumed our city. After meeting with them today it is clear that the notion they were planning on harming our police officers is false and simply deterred the resources we needed to focus on the individuals who instigated these riots. I applaud these young men for standing here and speaking out for our city.” City Council President Bernard C. Young said.

The gang members were even out in the streets directing traffic.

Young was so moved by the efforts of the gang members that he even apologized for calling rioters “thugs.”

What we’re seeing today is not about Freddie Gray. It is about the pain, the hurt and the suffering of these young people. There’s no excuse for them to loot, riot and destroy our city. I made a comment out of frustration and anger when I called our children ‘thugs.’ They’re not thugs. They’re just misdirected. We need to direct them on a different path by creating opportunities for them,” Young said.

“You need to make sure all these people know that this is also not a racial issue. This is about people in poverty and people that are oppressed, regardless of what color you are. We have white Bloods, we have white Crips. It‘s not about Color. It’s not about race,” one gang member told The Real News.

“We don’t need the police to protect our neighborhood because we protect our own, and it’s that simple,” another said.

The unified gang members have actually done more than the police to prevent property from being damaged and people from getting hurt. A number of different journalists have reported that they were saved by gang members when they became trapped in the center of the riot.


Earlier this week the NRA reported that a shop owner armed with a shotgun saved Baltimore Sun journalist Justin Fenton. The journalist later came forward to say that the shop owner just stood there to protect his business while gang members rushed to his rescue. The hero was later identified as Charles Shelley, a gang member currently involved in the truce.

When tales of Shelley’s actions went public, another reporter, this time Ben Jacobs of the Guardian Tweeted that “He looked out for me too!”

The Baltimore Sun caught Shelley dropping knowledge in a local church this week, the video can be seen below:

This situation also gives us a glimpse into the real solution to police brutality. Taking matters into our own hands and providing services to our community better than the government does, can effectively render the government obsolete over time. This economic strategy has many times been called “Agorism.”

For those of you not familiar with the term “Agorism”, it is a strategy of noncompliance. It works by using counter-economics and underground markets as a way of keeping power in the hands of the average people, thus slowly diminishing the power and relevance of the control structure.

Growing food, starting mutual aid or charity groups, using bitcoin, homeschooling, running a small business without licenses, bartering and starting community currencies are all examples of Agorist activities. Some Agorists are even so bold as to create businesses that will challenge existing state monopolies. We saw an example of this earlier this year when Detroit residents created their own community protection agencies because the police were no longer responding to 911 calls.

It is as simple as finding a need in your community for a particular good or service, and attempting to provide that value without any sort of interaction with the government or any other unchosen 3rd parties. In other words, the basic idea is to try solving the problem yourself, with your community instead of waiting around for a politician to make the problem worse.

As the man below explains, one thing that is often forgotten is that many of today’s street gangs have roots in activist groups. Often these groups sought to provide protection for communities that were being ignored or oppressed by police.

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

Members of ISIS are streaming across our Southern border into the United States. Judicial Watch, WND and now my best sources at the Border Patrol are confirming this fact.

Since July of 2014, I have been in semi-regular contact with two Border Patrol agents when wanted me to report on the true happenings on the border and how both the public and the agents are being endangered by DHS and their ever-changing policies related to the lack of protecting America’s southern border. This article speaks to the fact that two confidential Border Patrol informants have shifted their concerns from the illegal border crossings by Central American immigrants carrying deadly diseases, to ISIS members planning to carry out their terrorist agenda with massive deadly intent.

Border Patrol Agents Covertly Speak Out

On July of 2014, I was traveling to San Diego for vacation and had a chance encounter with a Border Patrol officer in a convenience store in Yuma, AZ.

The agent was very open and admitted that his fellow officers were angry beyond words at the Obama administration for allowing the unbridled immigration of groups like MS-13, the assassins for the Sinoloa drug cartel, into the country. He told me that his co-workers were being exposed to illegal immigrant-carrying diseases without protection and that the Border Patrol morale was at an all-time low.

I subsequently gave the officer my business card, promised not to use his name. In our first short five minute telephone conversation, 10 days later, he told me that Border Patrol officials were contracting drug resistant TB, Scabies and bacteriological pneumonia and that his fellow officers were even laundering their work clothes at their work site so that the danger to their families would be minimized. Nearly 10 days later after my initial report on this matter, members from many of the Independent Media outlets were receiving similar information from other confidential sources.

In October of 2014, this agent and his partner informed me that DHS was confiscating their rifles, thus, leaving them nearly defenseless in the face of well-armed Mexican drug cartel incursions. And it is not just the drug cartels that the Border Patrol fears, they have caught members of ISIS at the border as early as last fall. And this is coming at a time when members of the Border Patrol are simultaneously being systematically disarmed by DHS in the face of this latest threat. Almost one month later, in November of 2014, News Channel 4 Tucson Investigators confirmed what my Border Patrol sources had been telling me in October when the investigators uncovered the fact that some U.S. Border Patrol agents are indeed being disarmed by DHS. The result of this action by DHS is to leave all Americans more vulnerable than they were before. WHY IS THE BORDER PATROL BEING DISARMED?

The ISIS Invasion Has Begun

WND reported in October that Judicial Watch sources said four “Islamic terrorists” were captured in Texas, just 36 hours apart.

It was about at that time that Duncan Hunter (R-CA) confirmed in a TV interview that jihadists with the Middle Eastern group ISIS were caught coming into the U.S. from Mexico. Hunter said his information came from the Border Patrol, the same as myself.

ISIS  base camp near El Paso.

Previously, I reported that the Judicial Watch report stated that ISIS reconnaissance, through the use of their drug cartel coyotes,  were gathering intelligence on high priority ISIS target sites at various regional universities in the Southwest as well on the White Sands Missile Range; government facilities in Alamogordo, New Mexico; Fort Bliss; and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, New Mexico.

Border Patrol Forbidden To Arrest and Detain Suspected ISIS Members Under Threat of Job Termination and Possible Arrest

It is a well known fact that last summer that the Border Patrol was not allowed to arrest and detain MS-13 gang members. Today, that prohibition has been extended to suspected members of ISIS.

Last night, I appeared on Jennifer Meadows show on WNJC – 1360 in Mississippi. The concern expressed by the hosts over Jade Helm was noteworthy. Ms. Meadows gave this interview such a high priority that they suspended all of their commercials during my appearance on the WNJC show. In fact, I am doing 1-2 interviews per day on mostly mainstream radio stations which formerly would have had nothing to with anyone from the Independent Media. Jade Helm and the ISIS threat is changing all of that. People are afraid and for good reason. However, not all mainstream media outlets are willing to embrace the truth as I found out this morning with regard to KRTH radio in Houston.

The Media Censors Are Still At Work

Yesterday, I received two emails and one confirmation from KRTH radio, based in Houston that they wanted to interview me on the deception which is accompanying Jade Helm. The original email is listed below. Please note the stunning detail contained in the email which should give every American concern about Jade Helm. The KTRH documentation accompanying their invitation reads like the sum and substance of one of my articles.

After reading the KRTH radio invitation, I was shocked about how far the mainstream media had crossed over to the truthful side of the fence. Also, the readers should make note that the email implies that Jade Helm related forces will be involved in such domestic activities such as the Baltimore riots. I was stunned at the detail and knowledge expressed in this email and I expected an interview that I would want to share far and wide. Yet, I know all too well that when we are dealing with the dinosaurs from the MSM, we need to proceed with caution because they are, in large part, conditioned to obfuscate the truth by promoting the notion that there is no such thing as a conspiracy.

Ten minutes prior to the start of the interview, the producer to the morning show at KTRH called me and told me that my interview was cancelled and when I pressed him as to why, he refused to say why, citing program changes. I could safely sum up this experience in one phrase, censorship from the mainstream media.

Recently, I wrote an article detailing how the Independent Media is overtaking the MSM in the rating wars. My experience with KTRH radio in Houston reinforces why the ratings of the MSM are in the proverbial toilet. I would not have had a problem with the cancellation if they had replaced me with someone comparable on the same topic. That did not happen as KTRH is running from this topic and one can easily speculate as to why.

Dave,

Cliff Saunders here at KTRH Radio in Houston. I hope all is well.

Looking to see if you can help me out with a story I have assigned…

National Guard trains for civil unrest, rioting

http://www.waff.com/story/28925313/national-guard-trains-for-civil-unrest-rioting

This comes on the heels of concern over Jade Helm:

Concerned citizens confronted county and military officials Monday in Texas over the planned Jade Helm 15 training exercise that has ignited fears of a military takeover.

Elite forces from all four branches of the military will take part in the July 15-Sept. 15 operation in seven states across the southwest, where role players will stand in for hostile and less-hostile forces.

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/04/paranoid-texans-grill-army-spokesman-on-jade-helm-15-exercise-thats-sparking-fears-of-military-takeover/

Meanwhile – the White House dismisses talk of Texas takeover; Guard to ‘monitor’ U.S. troops

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/29/wh-downplays-concern-military-training-exercise/

So this is going to be about Jade Helm, and about why even though some think the military training is important to handle things like Baltimore riots, that some have concerns (like ulterior motives). I talked to Gary Franchi, but he can’t help me with a live interview tomorrow morning.

I was hoping you could come on Houston’s Morning News with Matt Patrick tomorrow at 7:15am for a few moments to talk about that.

Please let me know, and if you are available at 7:15 (Central)– the number we can call you at.

Thanks.

My KTRH experience reinforces the notion that all of us need to get our news from multiple sources. If individuals rely simply on the convenient MSM, they could be getting a sanitized version of the truth. And the emerging truth is that ISIS is streaming across our border, unabated and the Border Patrol, is powerless to do anything about it. Therefore, I feel compelled to ask, where is Jade Helm when you need them?

Conclusion

Mainstream media censorship aside, we have a major problem on our southern border that is ready to explode. Any President that is not willing to respond to the ISIS threat, is guilty of treason. Then, again, we who operate outside the shadows of the MSM, already know that.

Last week I issued a warning to Texans in which I encouraged them to be ready to defend themselves. Unfortunately, I need to expand this warning to the entire Southwest. When we look at the type of terrorist targets identified in the Judicial Watch documents, none of us in the Southwest should feel safe. When ISIS strikes, more than likely this summer, it will look and feel like the TET Offensive, from the Vietnam War, in that the targets will be widespread and varied and will happen in unison. People of the Southwest, prepare to defend yourself.

soros-1-466

By Brandon Turbeville

While Baltimore burns, the city has proven itself to be yet another staging ground in a long line of scenes involving “violent protests,” riots, and racial violence following an incident concerning police brutality, real or otherwise.

Although the issues that have set off the spark in most of these protests were entirely legitimate, government agencies, foundations, organizations, and NGOs immediately swooped in to divert the protests into racially charged fit throwing and often violent riots.

With a carefully orchestrated network that was capable of organizing large numbers of individuals on a moment’s notice, and a simultaneous media campaign that cleverly showed violence and riots but ignored peaceful or appropriately-directed violent acts, these organizations were able to turn what could and should have been a national movement into a racially-oriented hate-filled display of unrestrained destruction.

With this in mind, one might justifiably ask how these organizations might have such an effective network that operates in concert with a national corporate media apparatus in order to wreck legitimate movements and, out of those movements, create a counter-productive act of mindless fit-throwing?

The answer is the same as it has often been in Europe – the color revolution apparatus and George Soros.

Indeed, George Soros has been heavily involved in the social unrest and movement-wrecking activity that has taken place all across the United States in recent months. From Florida to Ferguson and now to Baltimore, George Soros’ Foundations have been involved in making sure that not only are American citizens unable to overcome racial divisions with mutual cooperation but that even the racially isolated participants are unable to accomplish anything of substance.

As Kelly Riddell of the Washington Times reported in January, 2015, regarding Soros’ involvement in Ferguson,

There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets.

Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.

Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times.

In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.

The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre.

“Our DNA includes a belief that having people participate in government is indispensable to living in a more just, inclusive, democratic society,” said Kenneth Zimmerman, director of Mr. SorosOpen Society Foundations’ U.S. programs, in an interview with The Washington Times. “Helping groups combine policy, research [and] data collection with community organizing feels very much the way our society becomes more accountable.”

Indeed, the Open Society Institute has been promoting “democracy” all over the world if, by democracy, one means the overthrow of governments unfriendly to Anglo-American banking interests and installing new and more corrupt leadership in its place.

Riddell continues by writing,

Soros-sponsored organizations helped mobilize protests in Ferguson, building grass-roots coalitions on the ground backed by a nationwide online and social media campaign.

Other Soros-funded groups made it their job to remotely monitor and exploit anything related to the incident that they could portray as a conservative misstep, and to develop academic research and editorials to disseminate to the news media to keep the story alive.

The plethora of organizations involved not only shared Mr. Soros‘ funding, but they also fed off each other, using content and buzzwords developed by one organization on another’s website, referencing each other’s news columns and by creating a social media echo chamber of Facebook “likes” and Twitter hashtags that dominated the mainstream media and personal online newsfeeds.

Buses of activists from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference in Chicago; from the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York and Equal Justice USA from New York; from Sojourners, the Advancement Project and Center for Community Change in Washington; and networks from the Gamaliel Foundation — all funded in part by Mr. Soros — descended on Ferguson starting in August and later organized protests and gatherings in the city until late last month.

All were aimed at keeping the media’s attention on the city and to widen the scope of the incident to focus on interrelated causes — not just the overpolicing and racial discrimination narratives that were highlighted by the news media in August.

“I went to Ferguson in a quest to be in solidarity and stand with the young organizers and affirm their leadership,” said Kassandra Frederique, policy manager at the Drug Policy Alliance, which was founded by Mr. Soros, and which receives $4 million annually from his foundation. She traveled to Ferguson in October.

“We recognized this movement is similar to the work we’re doing at DPA,” said Ms. Frederique. “The war on drugs has always been to operationalize, institutionalize and criminalize people of color. Protecting personal sovereignty is a cornerstone of the work we do and what this movement is all about.”

Ms. Frederique works with Opal Tometi, co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter — a hashtag that was developed after the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida — and helped promote it on DPA’s news feeds. Ms. Tometi runs the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, a group to which Mr. Soros gave $100,000 in 2011, according to the most recent of his foundation’s tax filings.

“I think #BlackLivesMatter’s success is because of organizing. This was created after Trayvon Martin, and there has been sustained organizing and conversations about police violence since then,” said Ms. Frederique. “Its explosion into the mainstream recently is because it connects all the dots at a time when everyone was lost for words. ‘Black Lives Matter’ is liberating, unapologetic and leaves no room for confusion.”

It should be noted that The Gamaliel Foundation, which is described as a “net-work of grassroots and interracial organizations,” is not only funded by George Soros, it was the Foundation where President Barack Obama began his career as a “community organizer” in Chicago. Obama’s former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright who drew Conservative ire for a fiery sermon condemning America’s actions (his famous “Goddamn America speech), is a trustee of the Soros-funded Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference, an organization that sent representatives to Ferguson early on.

In Ferguson, the use of clergy and ministers became a major part of the social movement as funded by Soros as well. Riddell reveals as much when she writes,

Representatives of Sojourners, a national evangelical Christian organization committed “to faith in action for social justice,” attended the weekend [Gamaliel’s weekend protest event in Ferguson]. The group received $150,000 from Mr. Soros in 2011.

Clergy representatives from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference, where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright serves as a trustee, also showed up. Mr. Wright was Mr. Obama’s pastor in Chicago before some of his racially charged sermons, including the phrase “God damn America,” forced Mr. Obama to distance himself. SDPC received $250,000 from Mr. Soros in 2011.

During Gamaliel’s weekend protest event, Sunday was deemed “Hands Up Sabbath,” where clergy were asked to speak out about racial issues, using packets and talking points prepared for them by another religion-based community organizing group, PICO.

PICO is also supported by the Open Society Foundations, according to its website.

The Washington Times article also serves to shed light on a number of other more profile “national” organizations funded by Soros that descended upon Ferguson, now explaining some of the reasons that the protest movement on the ground in MO became such a disgraceful failure. Riddell further demonstrates this by writing,

Larry Fellows III, 29, a Missouri native, did find his voice in the chaos of Ferguson with the help of outside assistance backed by Mr. Soros.

Mr. Fellows is co-founder of the Millennial Activists United, a key source of video and stories developed in Ferguson by youth activists used to inspire other groups nationally.

Mr. Fellows explained how he started his organization in an interview with the American Civil Liberties Union (another Soros-backed entity that sent national representatives to Missouri) in November.

“Initially, it would just be that we would show up for protests, and the next day we’d clean up the streets. A lot of the same people were out at the protests and going out to lunch and talking about what was happening. That became a cycle until a lot of us figured out we needed to have a strategy,” Mr. Fellows explained to the ACLU, which posted the interview in its blog.

“Then a lot of organizers from across the country started to come in to help us do the planning and do the strategizing. That helped us start doing it on our own and planning out actions and what our narratives were going to be,” he said.

MAU has listed on its website that it has partnered with Gamaliel network churches. They’ve also received training on civil disobedience from the Advancement Project — which was given a $500,000 grant from Mr. Soros in 2013 “to build a fair and just, multi-racial democracy in America through litigation, community organizing support, public policy reform, and strategic communications,” according to the Foundation’s website.

The Advancement Project, based in Washington, also arranged the meeting between community organizers in Ferguson and Mr. Obama last month to brief him on the situation in Ferguson and to set up a task force that examines trust between police and minority communities.

In addition, the Advancement Project has also dedicated some of its staff to lead organizations in Ferguson, like the Don’t Shoot Coalition, another grass-roots group that preaches the same message, links to the same Facebook posts and “likes” the same articles as DPA, ACLU, Hands Up Coalition, OBS, MORE and others.

It should also be noted that the Open Society Institute, one of Soros’ main NGOs, has worked closely with Mayor Rawlings-Blake and Google in making Baltimore one of their “test cities” for smart technology and new fiber cables. Rawlings-Blake has had pleasant things to say about Soros in the past.

While the above information addresses the involvement of #blacklivesmatter groups and similar organizations active on the ground inside Ferguson as a matter of historical precedent, these organizations and similar operations such as the Black Youth Project (funded by Soros) and the Open Society Institute and its subsididiaries have had a sizable presence inside Baltimore in the time leading up to the Freddie Gray protests and continue to do so as we speak.

For instance, Baltimore United Viewfinders has received a sizeable grant from the OSI for the purpose of working with a coalition of community partners and the Maryland Institute College of Art to use digital media to engage East Baltimore youth in peer-to-peer arts and social justice programming. Other organizations and individuals have received grants from the OSI to promote “social justice” and “democracy” through theatre and the arts while others operate on a more charitable basis, providing guidance in healthcare matters and community organizing skills. As one will see from the discussion of the methodology of color revolutions below as well as the discussion of the preparation that goes into these social phenomena, the structure of “community organizations” and “community influence” is important to the color revolution apparatus. The ability to take advantage of unemployed, under-educated, lonely, and hopeless youth is one of the greatest opportunities that the Soros color revolution organizations understand and firmly grasp.

The relevance of the Soros connection may seem confusing to many. Certainly, however, no one in their right mind will suggest that a man that has made his fortune bankrupting nations and impoverishing their peoples lies awake at night wringing his hands over concerns for black people in America.

Soros is most well-known for playing a major role in the funding and facilitating of the “Bulldozer Revolution” in Serbia that overthrew Slobodan Milosevic in 2000, Georgia’s “Rose Revolution” of 2003, the 2006 push to move Turkey toward a more Islamist governing structure, and even the Occupy movement in the United States among a great many others – none of which brought anything other than greater misery, impoverishment, and police state mechanisms to bear on the general public. The Occupy movement, being the only exception, still brought nothing to its participants except the opportunity to burn off excess anger and energy along with a few cracked protester skulls. It was otherwise an incredible waste of time.

Regardless, the methods being used by the Soros machine in terms of the #blacklivesmatter and other related campaigns across the country are much the same as those used in Europe to usher in greater austerity, police states, and fascism through government-coup and social protest – i.e. a coordinated media campaign to provide the general public with a false perception of events as well as a false narrative, the use of social media and slogans, and the deployment of “swarming adolescents” in the streets.

When media campaigns alone are not enough, there are other methods that are able to be implemented if need be. For instance, a Mother Jones report revealed the fact that in some areas where rioting began, there appears to have been a concerted effort on the part of the authorities to create an environment in which riots would be inevitable. For example, in an instance where it was reported that teens in Baltimore attacked police by throwing rocks, it was never mentioned that police had corralled these teens – who should have been on their way home – off the bus and into an area in between the mall and the high school. According to onlookers, it appeared that both the teens and the police were surprised at the situation – the police surprised at the lack of violence and the teens surprised that they were kept from going home. Eventually, rocks and bottles were reportedly thrown at police and the situation deteriorated from there. Of course, the entire story was never fully reported in the mainstream press. Still, while the rocks and bottles may have started from those in the crowd, others may justifiably wonder if there were not provocateurs already placed simply waiting to cause violence as soon as the tension had reached a boiling point. As it is, it is very likely that protesters and police alike were dupes in a devious game.

Consider also the fact that the Baltimore authorities, despite implementing heavy-handed tactics against high schoolers on their way home, allowed criminals, thieves, and violent thugs to prey upon innocent people, private property, and communities for quite some time without a serious effort to stop them. In fact, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake even openly admitted that the looters were allowed to riot when she stated that “We also gave those who wish to destroy space to do that as well.” The police were prevented from actually stopping the riots and were kept largely unequipped as well. In other words, the riots were both allowed and encouraged until they had reached a boiling point and the National Guard was called in.

Of course, the color revolution and destabilization is not merely some communiqué presented to a small group of people that organically takes on a life of its own. There is an entire science behind the application of a movement of destabilization both when it takes place overseas as well as when it takes place domestically. As Pottenger and Frieson of Color Revolutions and Geopolitics write,

Many are the professions that utilize this type of understanding, including (but not limited to) marketing, advertising, public relations, politics and law-making, radio, television, journalism and news, film, music, general business and salesmanship; each of them selling, branding, promoting, entertaining, sloganeering, framing, explaining, creating friends and enemies, arguing likes and dislikes, setting the boundaries of good and evil: in many cases using their talents to circumvent their audiences’ intellect, the real target being emotional, oftentimes even subconscious.

Looking beneath the facade of the color revolutionary movement we also find a desire-based behavioral structure, in particular one that has been built upon historical lessons offered by social movements and periods of political upheaval.

It then makes sense that the personnel of such operations include perception managers, PR firms, pollsters and opinion-makers in the social media. Through the operational infrastructure, these entities work in close coordination with intelligence agents, local and foreign activists, strategists and tacticians, tax-exempt foundations, governmental agencies, and a host of non- governmental organizations.

Collectively, their job is to make a palace coup (of their sponsorship) seem like a social revolution; to help fill the streets with fearless demonstrators advocating on behalf of a government of their choosing, which then legitimizes the sham governments with the authenticity of popular democracy and revolutionary fervor.

Because the operatives perform much of their craft in the open, their effectiveness is heavily predicated upon their ability to veil the influence backing them, and the long-term intentions guiding their work.

Their effectiveness is predicated on their ability to deceive, targeting both local populations and foreign audiences with highly-misleading interpretations of the underlying causes provoking these events.

 

With this explanation in mind, consider the description provided by Ian Traynor of the Guardian regarding the “revolutions” and “mass movements” which was taking place in Ukraine, Serbia, Belarus, and Georgia in 2004 and the time of the writing of his article. Indeed, Traynor’s depiction of the methodology used by the Foundations, NGOs, and government agencies stirring up dissent and popular revolt is equally illuminating. Traynor writes,

In the centre of Belgrade, there is a dingy office staffed by computer-literate youngsters who call themselves the Centre for Non-violent Resistance. If you want to know how to beat a regime that controls the mass media, the judges, the courts, the security apparatus and the voting stations, the young Belgrade activists are for hire.

They emerged from the anti-Milosevic student movement, Otpor, meaning resistance. The catchy, single-word branding is important. In Georgia last year, the parallel student movement was Khmara. In Belarus, it was Zubr. In Ukraine, it is Pora, meaning high time. Otpor also had a potent, simple slogan that appeared everywhere in Serbia in 2000 – the two words “gotov je”, meaning “he’s finished”, a reference to Milosevic. A logo of a black-and-white clenched fist completed the masterful marketing.

In Ukraine, the equivalent is a ticking clock, also signalling that the Kuchma regime’s days are numbered.

Stickers, spray paint and websites are the young activists’ weapons. Irony and street comedy mocking the regime have been hugely successful in puncturing public fear and enraging the powerful.

These slogans and symbols are the product of mass marketers employed by State Departments and intelligence agencies for the sole purpose of destabilizing and/or overthrowing a democratically elected or unfavorable (to the oligarchy)government.

The details and techniques of the manipulation of mass numbers of people have only continued to become more and more advanced and sophisticated, particularly with the advent of social media.

As Jonathan Mowat wrote,

As in the case of the new communication technologies, the potential effectiveness of angry youth in postmodern coups has long been under study. As far back as 1967, Dr. Fred Emery, then director of the Tavistock Institute, and an expert on the “hypnotic effects” of television, specified that the then new phenomenon of “swarming adolescents” found at rock concerts could be effectively used to bring down the nation-state by the end of the 1990s. This was particularly the case, as Dr. Emery reported in “The next thirty years: concepts, methods and anticipations,” in the group’s “Human Relations,” because the phenomena was associated with “rebellious hysteria.” The British military created the Tavistock Institute as its psychological warfare arm following World War I; it has been the forerunner of such strategic planning ever since. Dr. Emery’s concept saw immediate application in NATO’s use of “swarming adolescents” in toppling French President Charles De Gaulle in 1967.[1]

In November 1989, Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, Ohio, under the aegis of that university’s “Program for Social Innovations in Global Management,” began a series of conferences to review progress towards that strategic objective, which was reported on in “Human Relations” in 1991. There, Dr. Howard Perlmutter, a professor of “Social Architecture” at the Wharton School, and a follower of Dr. Emery, stressed that “rock video in Kathmandu,” was an appropriate image of how states with traditional cultures could be destabilized, thereby creating the possibility of a “global civilization.” There are two requirements for such a transformation, he added, “building internationally committed networks of international and locally committed organizations,” and “creating global events” through “the transformation of a local event into one having virtually instantaneous international implications through mass-media.”[2]

The American people must quickly learn the formula behind color revolutions, destabilizations, and the agendas of the world oligarchy before it becomes too late for us all. They must learn that simply because “leaders” appear to them, attempt to speak the same language and articulate rage does not mean that these leaders are men of the people.

Protests are necessary. Directed rage may also be necessary. But the wanton destruction of communities belonging to you or your neighbors is not only counterproductive, it produces rage that will be aimed back at you, and justifiably so. The entire country is being played like a fiddle. Baltimore is not an isolated collection of dupes, it is a microcosm. It is time the American people wise up and become street smart before it is too late.
