27-Facts-That-Show-How-The-Middle-Class-Has-Fared-Under-Barack-Obama-300x300

By Michael Snyder, on January 18th, 2015

During his State of the Union speech on Tuesday evening, Barack Obama is going to promise to make life better for middle class families.  Of course he has also promised to do this during all of his other State of the Union addresses, but apparently he still believes that there are people out there that are buying what he is selling.  Each January, he gets up there and tells us how the economy is “turning around” and to believe that much brighter days are right around the corner.  And yet things just continue to get even worse for the middle class.  The numbers that you are about to see will not be included in Obama’s State of the Union speech.  They don’t fit the “narrative” that Obama is trying to sell to the American people.  But all of these statistics are accurate.  They paint a picture of a middle class that is dying.  Yes, the decline of the U.S. middle class is a phenomenon that has been playing out for decades.  But without a doubt, our troubles have accelerated during the Obama years.  When it comes to economics, he is completely and utterly clueless, and the policies that he has implemented are eating away at the foundations of our economy like a cancer.  The following are 27 facts that show how the middle class has fared under 6 years of Barack Obama…

#1 American families in the middle 20 percent of the income scale now earn less money than they did on the day when Barack Obama first entered the White House.

#2 American families in the middle 20 percent of the income scale have a lower net worth than they did on the day when Barack Obama first entered the White House.

#3 According to a Washington Post article published just a few days ago, more than 50 percent of the children in U.S. public schools now come from low income homes.  This is the first time that this has happened in at least 50 years.

#4 According to a Census Bureau report that was recently released, 65 percent of all children in the United States are living in a home that receives some form of aid from the federal government.

#5 In 2008, the total number of business closures exceeded the total number of businesses being created for the first time ever, and that has continued to happen every single year since then.

#6 In 2008, 53 percent of all Americans considered themselves to be “middle class”.  But by 2014, only 44 percent of all Americans still considered themselves to be “middle class”.

#7 In 2008, 25 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 29-year-old age bracket considered themselves to be “lower class”.  But in 2014, an astounding 49 percent of all Americans in that age range considered themselves to be “lower class”.

#8 Traditionally, owning a home has been one of the key indicators that you belong to the middle class.  So what does the fact that the rate of homeownership in America has been falling for seven years in a row say about the Obama years?

#9 According to a survey that was conducted last year, 52 percent of all Americans cannot even afford the house that they are living in right now.

#10 After accounting for inflation, median household income in the United States is 8 percent lower than it was when the last recession started in 2007.

#11 According to one recent survey, 62 percent of all Americans are currently living paycheck to paycheck.

#12 At this point, one out of every three adults in the United States has an unpaid debt that is “in collections“.

#13 When Barack Obama first set foot in the Oval Office, 60.6 percent of all working age Americans had a job.  Today, that number is sitting at only 59.2 percent…

Employment Population Ratio 2015

#14 While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the average duration of unemployment in the United States has risen from 19.8 weeks to 32.8 weeks.

#15 It is hard to believe, but an astounding 53 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year.

#16 At the end of Barack Obama’s first year in office, our yearly trade deficit with China was 226 billion dollars.  Last year, it was more than 314 billion dollars.

#17 When Barack Obama was first elected, the U.S. debt to GDP ratio was under 70 percent.  Today, it is over 101 percent.

#18 The U.S. national debt is on pace to approximately double during the eight years of the Obama administration.  In other words, under Barack Obama the U.S. government will accumulate about as much debt as it did under all of the other presidents in U.S. history combined.

#19 According to the New York Times, the “typical American household” is now worth 36 percent less than it was worth a decade ago.

#20 The poverty rate in the United States has been at 15 percent or above for 3 consecutive years.  This is the first time that has happened since 1965.

#21 From 2009 through 2013, the U.S. government spent a whopping 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs.

#22 While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 32 million to 46 million.

#23 Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had full-time jobs outnumbered the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin.  But now the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps actually exceeds the number of women that have full-time jobs.

#24 One recent survey discovered that about 22 percent of all Americans have had to turn to a church food panty for assistance.

#25 An astounding 45 percent of all African-American children in the United States live in areas of “concentrated poverty”.

#26 40.9 percent of all children in the United States that are living with only one parent are living in poverty.

#27 According to a report that was released late last year by the National Center on Family Homelessness, the number of homeless children in the United States has reached a new all-time record high of 2.5 million.

Unfortunately, this is just the beginning.

The incredibly foolish decisions that have been made by Obama, Congress and the Federal Reserve have brought us right to the precipice of another major financial crisis and another crippling economic downturn.

So as bad as the numbers that I just shared with you above are, the truth is that they are nothing compared to what is coming.

We are heading into the greatest economic crisis that any of us have ever seen, and it is going to shock the world.

I hope that you are getting ready.

aa-Bilderberg

by Jon Rappoport, January 16, 2015

Suppose a reporter interviewed players behind the scenes re the question: who really runs the US government? Who really sets national policy?

A legit interview. Actual people. Actual quotes. Not just a circumstantial case.

And suppose these players answered the big questions directly and unmistakably?

And then…nothing happened.

No further coverage. No media hounds let loose to dig further. No government investigation. Nothing.

Well, it’s true. There was an interview. The questions were asked and answered. There was no tap-dancing or beating around the bush or vague reference.

Anyone who was anyone in Washington politics or media had access to the interview. Understood its meaning.

But no one shouted from the rooftops. No one used the conversation to force a scandal. No one protested loudly.

The conversation revealed that the entire basis of the Constitution had been torpedoed, that the people who were running US national policy were agents of an elite shadow group.

And yet: official silence. Media silence. The Dept. of Justice made no moves, Congress undertook no serious inquiries, and the President, Jimmy Carter, issued no statements. Carter was himself a covert agent in the White House, a willing pawn, and despite his proclaimed religious values, was nothing more than a rank con artist, a hustler, a phony down to his fingertips.

I’ll boil down the 1978 conversation between a reporter and two Trilateral Commission members:

“The US has been taken over.”

“Yes, so?”

By the way, the infamous Trilateral Commission still exists.

Many people think the TC, created in 1973 by David Rockefeller, is a relic of an older time.

Think again.

Patrick Wood, author of Trilaterals Over Washington, points out there are only 87 members of the Trilateral Commission who live in America. Obama appointed eleven of them to posts in his administration.

For example:

* Tim Geithner, Treasury Secretary;

* James Jones, National Security Advisor;

* Paul Volker, Chairman, Economic Recovery Committee;

* Dennis Blair, Director of National Intelligence.

Several other noteworthy Trilateral members: George HW Bush; Bill Clinton; Dick Cheney; Al Gore.

Keep in mind that the original stated goal of the TC was to create “a new international economic order.”

In the run-up to his inauguration after the 2008 presidential election, Obama was tutored by the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Brzezinski wrote, four years before birthing the TC with his godfather, David Rockefeller:

“[The] nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force. International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation state.”

Any doubt on the question of TC goals is answered by David Rockefeller himself, the founder of the TC, in his Memoirs (2003):

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

Okay. Here is a close-up snap shot of a remarkable moment from out of the past. It’s through-the-looking-glass—a conversation between reporter, Jeremiah Novak, and two Trilateral Commission members, Karl Kaiser and Richard Cooper. The interview took place in 1978. It concerned the issue of exactly who was formulating US economic and political policy.

The careless and off-hand attitude of Trilateralists Kaiser and Cooper is astonishing. It’s as if they’re saying, “What we’re revealing is already out in the open, it’s too late to do anything about it, why are you so worked up, we’ve already won…”

NOVAK (the reporter): Is it true that a private [Trilateral committee] led by Henry Owen of the US and made up of [Trilateral] representatives of the US, UK, West Germany, Japan, France and the EEC is coordinating the economic and political policies of the Trilateral countries [which would include the US]?

COOPER: Yes, they have met three times.

NOVAK: Yet, in your recent paper you state that this committee should remain informal because to formalize ‘this function might well prove offensive to some of the Trilateral and other countries which do not take part.’ Who are you afraid of?

KAISER: Many countries in Europe would resent the dominant role that West Germany plays at these [Trilateral] meetings.

COOPER: Many people still live in a world of separate nations, and they would resent such coordination [of policy].

NOVAK: But this [Trilateral] committee is essential to your whole policy. How can you keep it a secret or fail to try to get popular support [for its decisions on how Trilateral member nations will conduct their economic and political policies]?

COOPER: Well, I guess it’s the press’ job to publicize it.

NOVAK: Yes, but why doesn’t President Carter come out with it and tell the American people that [US] economic and political power is being coordinated by a [Trilateral] committee made up of Henry Owen and six others? After all, if [US] policy is being made on a multinational level, the people should know.

COOPER: President Carter and Secretary of State Vance have constantly alluded to this in their speeches. [untrue]

KAISER: It just hasn’t become an issue.

Source: “Trilateralism: The Trilateral Commission and Elite Planning for World Management,” ed. by Holly Sklar, 1980. South End Press, Boston. Pages 192-3.

This interview “slipped under the mainstream media radar,” which is to say, it was ignored, buried, sat on, censored.

US economic and political policy run by a committee of the Trilateral Commission—the Commission had been created in 1973 as an “informal discussion group” by David Rockefeller and his sidekick, Zbigniew Brzezinski.


The Matrix Revealed


When Carter won the presidential election, his aide, Hamilton Jordan, said that if after the inauguration, Cy Vance and Brzezinski came on board as secretary of state and national security adviser, “We’ve lost. And I’ll quit.” Lost—because both men were powerful members of the Trilateral Commission and their appointment to key positions would signal a surrender of White House control to the Commission.

Vance and Brzezinski were appointed secretary of state and national security adviser, as Jordan feared. But he didn’t quit. He became Carter’s chief of staff.

Think about this: if the interview had gained exposure, if it had ignited a firestorm in the press, with reporters pouring gasoline on it day in and day out, for months, interviewing Trilateral players and their government allies and their banking allies and their mega-corporate allies and their shills…with rats coming out of the closet and confessing exactly how the US government had been taken over…

…with headlines like:

SECRETIVE GROUP RUNS US NATIONAL POLICY;

US GOVERNMENT HELD PRISONER BY TRILATERAL COMMISSION;

AMERICA RUN BY ROCKEFELLER;

THE MEN BEHIND THE CURTAIN: DESTROYING INDEPENDENT AMERICA…

On and on and on…

This would have created the seeds of an alternative future, a future quite unlike the present we are living through now.

Of course, the naysayers would say it’s futile to imagine a future that didn’t happen, and we should just lay down and forget and let the takeover proceed. Yes, they always say that. They always say there is no chance for victory, because they’ve given up on their own lives, they’ve made their own internal compromises, they’ve sold themselves out over and over, they’ve bargained away their last chip of power and imagination, and they want companions in their spiritual narcosis.

But there it is. The interview that “never happened.”

Prisons_for_Profit_Youth 1

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

My wife used to run the corporate McDonald’s restaurants as the executive director in Arizona for almost a decade. The goal of every one of her stores was to create return business. McDonalds would invest in playland equipment and dine in furniture, all designed to make the restaurants a desirable place to return to. The business principle is called “Return on Investment”. An now, our prisons are being organized along the same business principle.

The present privatized prison system operates on the same principle and it is quite effective. The average person is sentenced from 5-7 years in prison. There is no rehabilitation, only the prison life which produces a more hardened criminal. When the convict is released, they find it virtually impossible to get a job because of their ex-con label. Within three years of release from prison, 70% of all prisoners return. Can you imagine if every restaurant had a 70% return rate from its customers? If my wife could have enjoyed these kinds of numbers, she would have been the executive of the year, each and every year.

According to the Pew Center in their study The Long Reach of American Corrections (March 2009), it costs nearly $79 per day to house an inmate which is 20 times the cost of putting someone on probation. Wouldn’t it make sense to sentence nonviolent offenders to probation and save the taxpayers’ money? Of course it would, unless you are Vanguard Investments,  the largest owner of privatized citizens in the form of the Correctional Corporation of America (CCA), GEO (2nd largest private prison company), Wackenhut, Viacom, AOL Time Warner and they are all controlled by the Vanguard Family of Funds. You remember Vanguard don’t you?

The problem of prison slave labor, goes right to the top and these corporations have a powerful political ally.

This is the same Vanguard that moved money prior to the Gulf Oil Explosion in a manner which made massive sums of money for key investors in the same manner as did Transocean, Goldman Sachs and Halliburton. And one of those insiders that benefitted from the Gulf Oil Explosion was President Obama as he was vested in Vanguard I and Vanguard II. The late Bob Chapman reported on this Obama conflict of interest as did I in an earlier article.  Obama’s corruption is not limited to his investors having and acting on foreknowledge of the Gulf Oil Explosion, he is an active investor in the slave labor motivated Prison Industrial Complex.

Obama benefits and profits from prison slave labor.

Overt Slave Labor

wanted-inmates

Many of Wall Street’s giants have been invited to the party and are reaping huge profits. The following is a list of the corporations that contract with CCA and GEO to produce American slave labor goods. They include Intel, Northern Telecom, TWA, Nordstrom’s Boeing, Motorola, Microsoft, AT&T, prison for profitWireless, 3Com, Revlon, Macy’s, Pierre Cardin. Texas Instrument, Dell, Compaq, Honeywell, Hewlett-Packard, Nortel, Lucent Technologies, Target, and countless more. All of these businesses are excited about the economic boom generation by prison slave labor and most actively lobby for mandatory sentencing.

Generally, prison inmates in state run penitentiaries generally receive minimum wage for their work. In Agenda 21 controlled Colorado, they only receive about $2 per hour, well under the minimum for state run prisons. However, Colorado inmates are rich compared to inmates in privately-run prisons where they can receive as little as 17 cents per hour. This is worse than Walmart slave labor in China! The highest-paying private prison run by the CCA pays 50 cents per hour for “highly skilled positions.” I am not sure how this is even legal as I remember reading something about the 13th Amendment being repealed.

Prison Slave Labor Has Become One of the Mainstays of the American Economy

Since 2010, this trend is accelerating.

If there is a silver lining as America has found and antidote to the loss of manufacturing through the various free trade agreements (i.e. NAFTA, CAFTA). Unfortunately, prison slave labor is the solution. The Left Business Observer identifies private corporate interests benefiting from prison slave labor which includes the manufacturing of “93% of all paints and paintbrushes; 92% of stove assembly; 46% of body armor; 36% of home appliances; 30% of headphones/microphones/speakers; and 21% of office furniture.  This is a kind of Walmart for prisons and your State Legislatures are promoting this as a kind of cost savings, but they guarantee 90-100% prison bed occupancy rates. And we wonder why mandatory sentencing  has replaced judicial discretion when deciding the disposition of a criminal case.

Time Off for Good Behavior

The CCA, the largest owner of privatized prisons.

prison slave laborIn these normally overcrowded prisons, inmates may get their sentences reduced for “good behavior,” but for any violation of prison rules, they get 30 days tacked on to their sentences. I thought only a judge, under the Fifth Amendment due process provisions of the Constitution, can impose a prison sentence. This translates into more profits for CCA. According to a study of New Mexico prisons, it was found that CCA inmates lost  their “time off for good behavior”  at an 800% higher rate than inmates in state run prisons. CCA’s prisons are notoriously understaffed and this under-staffing leads to more acting out by the inmates which in turn leads to longer sentences resulting in more profit.

Therefore, one of the profit motivators for CCA is administration by neglect. In other words, they make more money if the prisons are poorly run and decidedly more dangerous.

If only the stock market was so reliable as a revenue generator.

Rockefeller Scams the System in Search of Profits

In New York,  Nelson Rockefeller’s heralded anti-drug law, initiated in 1973, provided for a mandatory prison sentences of 15 years to life for possession of four ounces of any illegal drug. Fifteen years to life for possessing four ounces of marijuana? Mr. Rockefeller, what could possibly be the motive for such strict drug laws? Answer, the same motive on why Obama has his money in Vanguard.

Besides Nelson Rockefeller, the privatized prison system has enjoyed having low friends in high places for a very long time beginning with Nancy Reagan’s “Just say no” and her husband’s War on Drugs program. Ironically under Reagan, his CIA traded guns for drugs in the Air America Iran-Contra Affair. Enter former president, George H. W. Bush, and an ex CIA director, and things only got worse. Bush helped fuel the growth of the industry during his presidency. And upon leaving office, he became a player in privatized prisons.

Under Reagan and Bush, Federal drug laws became more draconian.  Presently, Federal law mandates five years’ imprisonment with no hope of parole for possession of five grams of crack or 3.5 ounces of heroin. Further, Federal law provides for 10 years imprisonment  for possession of less than two ounces of crack. A sentence of five years for cocaine powder requires possession of 500 grams. This puts the United States on a par with nations like Turkey with regard to excessive sentences handed out for simply drug possession. There can only be one outcome from this trend curve, more slave labor and a lot more smiling faces on Wall Street.

Go to School and End Up In Prison

prison 666

The above graphic now applies to our children as our kids are increasingly becoming victim to what is called the School to Prison Pipeline.

Every good major leagues baseball team has a successful farm system of minor league teams in smaller towns and cities. This is where the majority of baseball talent develops their skills prior to coming to the parent club. The Prison Industrial Complex is run like a major league baseball team’s farm system in which young talent is developed to replace the aging veterans.

Your child this fall?

It used to be a given that unless one committed murder, juveniles under the age of 18 did not go to jail or prison. That is no longer the case. The incarceration of our youth is big business. There are almost 75,000 juveniles in prison and the rates are skyrocketing because of a phenomenon that is now being referred to as the school to prison pipeline in which schools are increasingly refusing to deal with even minor discipline issues and are placing juveniles in police custody.

In 2010, there were 5,574 school-based arrests of juveniles in the Chicago Public School. The juvenile arrests accounted for about one of every five juvenile arrests in the entire city of Chicago for all of 2010. The incarceration rates for Chicago’s juveniles are in line with most other metropolitan areas in the country. There is also a general trend of disproportionate rates of minority contact within the juvenile justice system, Black youth accounted for 74% of school-based arrests, and 22.5% of youth arrested were Latino. The enrollment of Chicago schools in was 45% Black and 41% Latino. These high arrest rates for so many of our minority youth, create potential slave laborers for the Prison Industrial Complex. Once a child is adjudicated in the justice system, society usually witnesses a straight line right to prison. These precious children are having their futures robbed from them before they can even get started. What are they being arrested for? The number one reason is for fighting on school grounds.

As a child, I had fights on school grounds, but nobody tried to send me to prison. The number two reason why children end up in the justice system is for possessing small amounts of marijuana.

As a former mental health counselor, I am all too familiar with the devastation brought on by use of drugs. However, marijuana is not one of these drugs. If legalizing marijuana runs against everything you believe in, how about decriminalizing. In other words, we still make the drug illegal but nobody goes to prison for simple possession.

The federal authorities, controlled by the corporations will never allow such a common sense, liberalized approach to drug enforcement. The feds even arrest medical marijuana dispensers and users. Why? Because Wall Street wants prisoners to fill its increasingly privatized and for-profit prison system. This is the major reason why America has 25% of the world’s prison population.

Our minority youth, in the inner cities, are being conditioned by the system that going to prison is part of the life experience. And with extremely high recidivism rates, prison slave labor will never have any shortage of participants.

The Prison Industrial Complex and their lobbyists are responsible for zero tolerance policies, mandatory sentencing and the three strikes life sentencing that is so prominent in many of our states and unless we identify these abuses and stop them, it is only going to get worse.

These events are culminating to establish was has been dubbed as the School to Prison Pipeline. Remember the term, because they are actively recruiting our children for the prison slave labor force.

Conclusion

Since the advent of privatized prisons in 1984, America has witnessed the passage of laws that require minimum sentencing, without regard for any extenuating circumstances. Our prison system is experiencing a much larger percentage of work by prisoners, thus creating profits for Wall Street which in turn motivate the incarceration of more people for longer periods of time. And privatized prison corporate investors make happy campaign contributors. Therefore, you can bet that the proverbial poop rolls down hill to the cops and the push is on to incarcerate more and more. Some argue that is fine, but when one of the fastest growing segments of our prison population are children, we all need to sit up take notice and take action.

Again, this system is very effective and efficient. With only four percent of the world’s population, the United States has over 25% of the world’s prison population. As a people, we are very ingenious as our corporations have learned to make money from virtually any life circumstance. Do your kids have a “get out of jail card”?

Preface by: TLB

As we move forward into this new year of 2015 America faces multiple game changing scenarios. Global war, Rampant disease, Martial law, Economic collapse, Social breakdown and the eminent collapse of our biosphere. Never before in the history of this country have We The People faced a more uncertain future fraught with so much danger and uncertainty.

But bringing in the new year always facilitates nostalgic thoughts of the past … what have we experienced or suffered, a time of reflection. So lets look back and understand how we got to where we are today and what has transpired to put us and this once great country in the position we now find ourselves today.

Please understand we at The Liberty Beacon project are not fatalists, but you cannot progress to workable solutions, unless or until, you understand the events that transpired to facilitate the present circumstances.

The article that follows was originally written about two years ago, but has been seriously updated to reflect some of the most pertinent events that have transpired recently, some of the historical changes to our ability to live a free and prosperous life in today’s America. This article does not by any means contain a complete list of the changes that have been perpetrated on us … but what it does contain is of a significance beyond merely important.

The Truth Of Tyranny: What We Have Already Lost

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

Updated 01/01/2015

What follows is a statement of present day reality, NOT what could be!

So please read, and I invite one and all to challenge any part of this article they feel is falsely stated!

Since the turn of the century, and especially in the last six plus years, aided by Congress, there has been an accelerated paradigm shift in America away from a Republic to a soft dictatorship with more power being consolidated into the hands of a single individual than any American patriot would have ever believed! This has all been accomplished in the name of global oligarchs who now control or outright own our leaders. This is not a guess but a fact … !!!

Where was the massive outcry from We The People that should have followed a study released by Princeton University clearly showing that we as Americans no longer live in a Republic governed by Democratic process … but instead exist in a country Ruled by Oligarchs: Princeton Makes It Official: USA Has Become Oligarchy, No Democracy? This clearly indicates We The People are no longer captains of this ship called America, but instead our elected officials (who they select) and by default us, serve at their whim, command, and to only their benefit.

This fact alone does more to explain the massive changes in America than anything else possibly could. What you also need to understand is that this is not a recent development but a program several centuries in progress … just now accelerated by these corporatists to take advantage of the global and national conditions that prevail, all facilitated by their hands.

So what have we already lost beyond the very Republic our forefathers bequeathed to us?

This is a partial list of unalienable rights and freedoms we can now, by law or by executive order, be denied in the land of the (used to be) free, and the circumstances that prevail for the powers that be to enforce this tyranny! It is not an all-inclusive list, but enough to scare the holy crap out of any patriot …

We have lost our rights via the Fourth Amendmen to the United States Constitution. This is the part of the Bill of Rights that prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and requires any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. But in a blow to the constitutional rights of citizens, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 (in Heien v. State of North Carolina) that police officers are permitted to violate our Fourth Amendment rights if the violation results from a “reasonable” mistake about the law on the part of law enforcement. Acting contrary to the venerable principle that “ignorance of the law is no excuse,” the Court ruled that evidence obtained by police during a traffic stop that was not “legally justified” can be used to prosecute the person if police were reasonably mistaken that the person had violated the law.

So to put this in a clear perspective, YOU and I are required to know and follow the law … Ignorance of the law is NOT an excuse in the eyes of the police or the courts. BUT the very people whose job it is to uphold the law are not required to know and understand the law. What the Supreme Court has in fact done is give law enforcement the ability to circumvent the law under the smokescreen of ignorance, but good intent (Yea this will never be abused (satire)). Welcome to the American Police state

You now have lost your right to assembly or protest through HR 347, giving government the ability to arrest and bring felony charges against anyone engaged in political protests outside their allowed or permitted definition of protest! Passed by Congress!

What we now see on college campuses and protest rallies such as the Bundy ranch, is exclusion zones where free speech is not permitted via local or federal government intervention. This unalienable right must now be practiced as a (government) granted privilege in designated “Free Speech Zones” … REALLY ??? How can something be called Free Speech if the government defines when and where THEY will permit it? But if you violate their restrictions again you can suffer arrest and felony charges.

The exclusion zones (where exercising free speech is NOT permitted) imposed by Section 1752 of this law have no set boundaries. They can be as expansive as local or federal government deem necessary. The “Free Speech Zone” will always be an area designated outside the focal point of the desired protest … and isolated from appropriate press coverage and broadcast media. So by losing your right to protest, haven’t you also lost (or fatally damaged) your right to free speech through HR 347,  Passed by Congress!

The president no longer requires the Senate to approve all his Czars, and can appoint any crony or political ally to certain high-ranking government positions now with impunity from congressional checks and balances with the passage of S 679. This will allow him to consolidate powers never before even considered, due to the relationships he may have with these appointed individuals or their organizations! Passed By congress!

You no longer have the right to due process in any way, shape, or form if our president or his appointed government officials declare you an enemy of the state through the NDAA bill (section 1032/1021). Now this in itself is not so new … But the NDAA bill for 2013 military spending included a clause to protect the rights of American citizens for due process … this (under pressure from the president/White House) was subsequently stripped from the bill leaving the tyranny of the bill intact, WHY ??? There remains no requirement for the burden of proof, as you have no due process and can be locked away indefinitely, without the prospects of a trial. Passed by congress!

You can now be targeted for assassination, as an American via Executive Order 12333, by the president or his appointed representatives if for any reason you are deemed an enemy of the state, and there again is no burden of proof, no oversight and no requirement for due process! My God doesn’t this sound like the political machinations of a Dictatorial Banana Republic? Passed by presidential executive order (but of course)!

This president has made law his power to declare a national emergency, (defined by him) or martial law in an emergency, (also defined by him) with the ability to completely subjugate We The People via Executive order 13603, National Defense Resources Preparedness , This tyrannical order calls for civilian conscription under the Department of the Labor … without compensation! Can you say “Labor Camps”, or “Total Subjugation”!

Also consider under this supposed national emergency, that this EO gives this president TOTAL and absolute control over all food, food production and storage in American … So if you wish to eat, or feed your family, you had better tow the line !!!

His EO states said government would exercise TOTAL CONTROL over the following:

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

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

Also consider that that Section 201(b) of  EO 13603 clearly states that it is enforceable under both “emergency ” and “NON-emergency conditions” … REALLY ??? … WHY ???

This president has signed a plethora of executive orders since he entered office, with some having immense power centralizing implications, but no clear definition of boundaries he may not exceed! Here is a partial list that shows the immense authority he would control over this country at his whim (pay particular attention to EO#11000)…

  • EO#10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
  • EO#10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
  • EO#10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.
  • EO#10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
  • EO#11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
  • EO#11001 allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.
  • EO#11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration
  • EO#11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
  • EO#11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
  • EO#11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

Add to the above list the constant and fervent attack on our second amendment rights, a right our founders felt critical for We The People to keep an otherwise tyrannical government in check. A right that must be defeated and rendered obsolete in order to allow the progression of tyranny to come to fruition in America. Why, because we as a society own hundreds of millions of guns … more than just about any standing army on this planet, and this poses a serious threat to the fundamental change promised to America, change that does NOT bode well for Americans.

Now consider that this government has bought, paid for and staffed over 600 internment centers, built under contract by Halliburton industries, strategically placed around the country, and capable of holding millions of patriots for forced reeducation and relocation purposes, without due process and for an indefinite period of time as detailed in DOD report FM 3-39.40 (please research this, it is very real).

Your right to reasonable privacy is gone as, through the patriot act and other legislation we are not privileged to, government agencies may spy on you and collect your personal data with legal impunity. Whether it be through social media, phone conversations, internet searches, street lights, appliances in your home, your automobile, or high flying drones etc… Even if you wish to be, you will never be truly alone again!

The government has been, and continues to actively hire tens of thousands of goons, thugs and self proclaimed mercenaries, to man an internal army called by their soft names, the TSA and Homeland Security. These troops are being armed as well as the best combat troops we send abroad to fight our illegal, imperialistic wars, including battle-proven automatic weapons, 2.2 BILLION rounds of ammunition (enough to fight a ten year war of the scope we are involved in across the middle east) including a massive number of .40 caliber hollow point rounds (only meant to kill and outlawed by the Geneva convention even for use in times of war), body armor, armored vehicles, aerial surveillance (drones) etc…!

These internal forces are currently being stationed across the country at strategic locations such as airports, train and bus stations, shopping malls, checkpoints on major highways and even sports events. So, basically, in any place there is significant gathering, or the flow of population!

Also Via the 1033 program (the Department of Defense Excess Property Program), hometown police departments are obtaining massive amounts military equipment, training and funds … all with strings back to the federal government (nothing the feds give you is ultimately free). So what we in fact are ending up with is the federalization of local police forces available to the feds to accomplish what they themselves cant or don’t have the resources to.

The Military is in the process of training as many as 40,000 returning soldiers in crowd control and riot termination to be used to augment the internal forces mentioned above, even though this is in direct violation of Posse Comitatus and the Constitution, which clearly states the standing army is to be used for foreign conflicts and not against the American people!

Now this list, as long and comprehensive as it is, only shows the surface of the preparations being made to subjugate the American population … Question, COULD THESE LAWS AND EO’S EVEN EXIST IN AMERICA without tyrannical presidents and a complicit congress?

Seditious

Here is a list of things tyrannical governments throughout history have found cannot be tolerate in order to maintain and protect their hold on absolute power …

The right to Freedom of speech

The right to bear arms

The right to assemble (protest)

The right to due process

The right to reasonable privacy

The right to protection against unreasonable searches and seizures

The right to ownership of critical properties

The right of citizens to choose their leaders

No please go back over the above article and see just how many of the list above are covered … If this does not shock the hell out of you, then you are brain dead!

What is also clearly shown in this article is that this is not the result of one corrupt branch of our government. The Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches are all complicit in the erosion and circumventing of what are supposed to be unalienable rights and freedoms enjoyed by, and freely practiced by all Americans.

So please look at the above title again … Need I say more. Is the title of this article making more sense to you now?

Are you angry yet ???

All of this is mind boggling, and most would truly believe this cannot happen in America! But America has no magical immunity against tyranny. Just like all republics before us, any government not held accountable by its true governors (the people) will eventually accumulate power unto themselves and tyranny WILL result!

This could never have happened if We The People had not grown so apathetic and detached from our true responsibility as the governors of this Republic! American today has the most ignorant and disconnected society from the political process that govern their country on this planet.

In America Today

Take a serious look at what has been presented here and understand that this is “What We Have Already Lost”! It is well past time to wake up and push back !!!

At present the line “Land of the Free and home of the Brave” is a cruel joke! It is obvious to anyone aware of the above that we are no longer free … and as far as being brave, well where is the massive push-back against this obvious tyranny, where are the masses of the Brave ???

The struggle for liberty may cost you a lot, BUT, doing nothing WILL cost you EVERYTHING!

Please remember, as bleak as this seems, there is hope, because regardless of their power and preparation, the most powerful force in this country has always been, and still remains the 315 million Americans! Together we constitute an unstoppable force that cannot be silenced!

obama excuses 1

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

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

So let me start this off with a question:

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

It is so easy to blame someone else! We have all been guilty of this at least once in our lives, but we are not the Commander In Chief of the most powerful military force in human history. We are not responsible for the safety and protection of an entire country of over 300, 000,000 people in times of chaos and crisis.

Excuses are easily overlooked by individuals who’s actions provide minimal or extremely localized ramifications, but to expect anything less than focused dedication from our most powerful leaders is suicidal … this IS their job!

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

isis-and-obama 3

THE FACTS ARE …

isis-and-obama 4

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

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

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

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

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

left-to-die-benghazi 1

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

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

illegal-immigrants 1

This all leads to several possibilities,

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

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

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

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

obama-plays-golf

When Piers Morgan (of all bleeding heart Ultra Liberals) comes down on Obama with the power of a pile-driver for his lackadaisical performance as the (so called) Leader of free world, this shows blatantly just how far the President has fallen from the graces of those who once supported him without question!

Excerpt from :  Piers Morgan BLASTS Obama in Daily Mail Editorial

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

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

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

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

Read more here: Piers Morgan BLASTS Obama in Daily Mail Editorial

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

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

 

 

Ebola virus

-Big Pharma seeks legal immunity for damages from experimental Ebola vaccines
-U.S. State Dept. to transport foreign Ebola victims to U.S. hospitals for treatment
-Ebola survives on surfaces for up to 50 days
-The Ebola Story Doesn’t Smell Right
By: Ethan A. Huff

The same drug manufacturers that stand to profit immensely from the sale of Ebola vaccines say they require full legal immunity from any potential lawsuits that might arise when people are harmed by various adverse effects from these “emergency” drugs.

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) CEO Andrew Witty told World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Margaret Chan that his corporation, which is currently leading the way in producing Ebola vaccines, shouldn’t have to shoulder any of the burden of responsibility for their safety.

Witty maintains, in other words, that GSK should be allowed full access to the financial benefits associated with selling Ebola vaccines to the public, but with absolutely none of the risk. And his company and others will likely get what they want, since they hold remarkable sway in the political realm.

“I think it is reasonable that there should be some level of indemnification because the vaccine is essentially being used in an emergency situation before we’ve all had the chance to confirm its absolute profile,” Witty told BBC.

“That’s a situation where we would look for some kind of indemnification, either from governments or from multilateral agencies.”

Taxpayers funding development of high-profit drugs for which drug companies will not be held liable

There are currently no approved drugs or vaccines for Ebola, which is why GSK and others have been racing to pump new ones through the pipeline. This process, which normally takes five or six years to complete, is being done in about five or six months, hence concerns over the safety of the final products.

But the shady reality is that governments, not vaccine companies, are actually the ones financing the development of experimental Ebola drugs and vaccines. And they are doing so on the taxpayer dime, which means vaccine companies are not only developing their vaccines for free but also gaining access to unlimited profit potential driven by fear.

Combined with its petitions for legal immunity, the vaccine industry wants to have all of its cake and eat it, too. Imagine such a scenario on a smaller scale — a coffee shop owner is called upon to brew coffee for a sleepy population on the verge of collapse, is given the money to brew the coffee, accepts all the profits from the sale of the coffee, and is also shielded from any liability should the coffee make anyone sick.

It is a tyrant’s dream come true, and it is exactly how the vaccine industry operates. The European Union, it was recently reported, has already set aside nearly $250 million for the funding of Ebola vaccine development, and now vaccine companies are asking for more in the form of immunity from legal liability.

“This is an unprecedented pace of development,” added Witty before WHO, presumably salivating over the record-breaking profits to be made from the sale of Ebola vaccines. “We are literally doing in maybe five or six months what would normally take five or six years.”

“I’ve already ordered five production lines to allow us to expand production.”

J&J, Pfizer also looking to profit on Ebola crisis

Also in on the Ebola vaccine scam is drug giant Johnson & Johnson (J&J), which hopes to produce more than one million doses of Ebola vaccine by next year. His company is hoping to collaborate with both GSK and Pfizer on developing “significant capacity” for producing a variety of biotech drugs and vaccines on a much larger scale.

“We are looking at capabilities for biological production to upscale further,” stated J&J research head Paul Stoffels at a recent WHO meeting.

U.S. State Dept. to transport foreign Ebola victims to U.S. hospitals for treatment
October 29, 2014 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

First we were told that Ebola wouldn’t come to America. Then we were promised the best way to keep Ebola out of America was to eliminate quarantines and travel restrictions. Now, to the astonishment of nearly everyone, the U.S. government is planning to deliberately transport Ebola-infected foreigners to the United States for treatment in U.S. hospitals. Taxpayers will foot the bill, estimated at half a million dollars per patient.

This has all come out in a four-page memo acquired by the Washington Times. “The State Department has quietly made plans to bring Ebola-infected doctors and medical aides to the U.S. for treatment,” the Times reports. [1] ” The memo even details the expected price per patient, with transportation costs at $200,000 and treatment at $300,000.”

The U.S. State Dept. is the same government entity that recently posted an acquisition contract for 160,000 Ebola hazmat suits, which many now believe are being stockpiled in the United States to deal with the Ebola outbreak that’s widely anticipated by the government.

So far in the battle against Ebola, the U.S. federal government and White House seem to be working in favor of the deadly virus instead of against it. At every turn, the CDC has deliberately misinformed the public about the ease of Ebola transmission, lied about its incubation period, lied about the spread distance of aerosolized body fluids, prevented the implementation of travel restrictions and even actively dismantled quarantine policies in New Jersey and New York.

America now governed by the Ebola administration

It is difficult to imagine how the U.S. government could be more of an ally of Ebola than it is already. It has done everything imaginable to promote the spread of Ebola short of lining people up and injecting them with it.

Remember: This is an administration that went from saying Ebola won’t ever come to America to literally importing Ebola-infected patients into U.S. hospitals under a deliberate plan to bring them here!

Each day that I read the news on Ebola, I am increasingly astonished at the almost unimaginable reluctance of the Obama administration to support anything that might protect Americans from the pandemic. Every good idea that might offer hope for keeping America safe — such as the NJ and NY mandatory quarantines for high-risk travelers — has been immediately and deliberately shot down by the White House working in unison with the CDC.

The ludicrousness of government actions on all this has me wondering whether the CDC should change its name to the Centers for Disease Collaboration.

Above all, given that U.S. hospitals have already proven they cannot contain Ebola in patients, how does the State Dept. think that bringing more Ebola patients to the United States is supposed to protect Americans?

Ebola may not have yet spread across America, but mental insanity is already an epidemic in Washington D.C.

Will Obama Ship More Ebola Into The U.S.?

Ebola survives on surfaces for up to 50 days
October 29, 2014 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer

Little-known research published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology back in 2010 is upsetting the official story regarding Ebola, which government officials claim cannot be spread through contaminated surfaces. Scientists from the Biomedical Sciences Department at the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory in the UK found that, contrary to mainstream claims, Ebola can survive for up to 50 days on dried surfaces, specifically on cold glass.

In order to better understand how filoviruses are transmitted, the team tested several strains of Ebola, including the ZEBOV (Zaire ebolavirus) species currently believed to be in circulation, to see how they survived under various conditions. Both the ZEBOV and MARV (Lake Victoria marburgvirus) strains were tested for survival rates in liquid suspensions and on plastic, glass and metal surfaces for multiple established time periods, as well as in dynamic aerosols (airborne).

According to the Daily Mail Online, both the ZEBOV and MARV strains were tested on glass, metal and plastic at 4 degrees Celsius (39 degrees Fahrenheit) or room temperature for several weeks. Plotted charts contained in the study show the survival rates of the viruses in the different media. While both viruses were found to survive for 26 days on the cold plastic, ZEBOV survived for nearly two months, or 50 days, on the chilled glass.

At no point in the study were scientists able to obtain a sample of either virus from the metal substrate, made from stainless steel.

“This study has demonstrated that filoviruses are able to survive and remain infectious for cell culture, for extended periods when suspended within liquid media and dried onto surfaces,” wrote the researchers about their findings. “Data from this study extend the knowledge on the survival of filoviruses under different conditions and provide a basis with which to inform risk assessments and manage exposure.”

The study is available for free here:

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2672.2010.04778.x/pdf

Government lies again: Ebola can be transmitted by touching contaminated surfaces

Though real-world conditions vary from those in a laboratory, these findings suggest that, once again, the U.S. government has lied to the public about the dangers of Ebola. If it is really true that Ebola can survive on dry surfaces where it would be impossible for the virus to incubate, then the risk of disease transmission is much higher than we are all being told.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with the Obama White House, continues to claim that Ebola is not spread through air, water or food, and that it only transmits from an infected person through direct contact with his or her bodily fluids. But this study of Ebola survival on surfaces suggests that these reassurances by the government are false.

Besides its surface transmission potential, Ebola can also travel through the air via aerosol particulates, such as those expelled when a person coughs or sneezes. This was confirmed in a recent Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) study which found that Ebola-contaminated micro-droplets can travel as far as 20 feet from an infected person, potentially distributing throughout a hospital’s ventilation system, for instance.

“[C]oughs and sneezes have associated gas clouds that keep their potentially infectious droplets aloft over much greater distances than previously realized,” explains the MIT study, the announcement for which is available through MIT News:
NewsOffice.MIT.edu.

“[T]he smaller droplets that emerge in a cough or sneeze may travel five to 200 times further than they would if those droplets simply moved as groups of unconnected particles — which is what previous estimates had assumed. The tendency of these droplets to stay airborne, resuspended by gas clouds, means that ventilation systems may be more prone to transmitting potentially infectious particles than had been suspected.”

The Ebola Story Doesn’t Smell Right
October 29, 2014 by Paul Craig Roberts

The federal government has announced that thousands of additional US soldiers are being sent to Liberia. General Gary Volesky said the troops would “stamp out” ebola. The official story is that combat troops are being sent to build treatment structures for those infected with ebola.

Why combat troops? Why not send a construction outfit such as an engineer battalion if it has to be military? Why not do what the government usually does and contract with a construction company to build the treatment units? “Additional thousands of troops” results in a very large inexperienced construction crew for 17 treatment units. It doesn’t make sense.

Stories that don’t make sense and that are not explained naturally arouse suspicions, such as: Are US soldiers being used to test ebola vaccines and cures, or more darkly are they being used to bring more ebola back to the US?

I understand why people ask these questions. The fact that they will receive no investigative answer will deepen suspicions.

Uninformed and gullible Americans will respond: “The US government would never use its own soldiers and its own citizens as guinea pigs.” Before making a fool of yourself, take a moment to recall the many experiments the US government has conducted on American soldiers and citizens. For example, search online for “unethical human experimentation in the United States” or “human radiation experiments,” and you will find that federal agencies such as the Department of Defense and Atomic Energy Commission have: exposed US soldiers and prisoners to high levels of radiation; irradiated the testicles of males and tested for birth defects (high rate resulted); irradiated the heads of children; fed radioactive material to mentally disabled children.

The Obama regime’s opposition to quarantine for those arriving from West Africa is also a mystery. The US Army has announced that the Army intends to quarantine every US soldier returning from deployment in Liberia. The Army sensibly says that an abundance of caution is required in order to minimize the risk of transferring the ebola outbreak to the US. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/army-quarantines-general-soldiers-fighting-ebola/story?id=26486775 However, the White House has not endorsed the Army’s decision, and the White House has expressed opposition to the quarantines ordered by the governors of New York and New Jersey. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/10/27/joint-chiefs-call-for-quarantine-troops-returning-from-ebola-zone/

Apparently pressure from the White House and threats of law suits from those subject to quarantine have caused the two states to loosen their quarantines. A nurse returning from treating ebola patients in West Africa has been cleared by New Jersey for discharge after being symptom-free for 24 hours instead of the 21-days it takes for the disease to produce symptoms. The nurse threatened a lawsuit, and the false issue of “discrimination against health care workers” has arisen. How is it discrimination to quarantine those with the greatest exposure to ebola?

Once symptoms appear, an infected person is dangerous to others until the person is quarantined. As the CDC now has been forced to admit, after stupidly denying the obvious fact, the current ebola strain can spread by air. All it takes is a sneeze or a cough or a contaminated surface. http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/10/cdc-finally-gets-right-ebola-spreads-aerosols-3-feet.html

In other words, it can spread like flu. Previous denials of this fact helped to create the suspicion that the new ebola strain is a weaponized biowarfare strain created by US government labs in West Africa. As University of Illinois law professor Francis Boyle has revealed, Washington placed its biowarfare laboratories in African countries that did not sign the convention banning such experimentation. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/10/20/us-government-master-criminal-time/

Washington’s deviousness in evading the convention that the US government signed has produced another suspicion: Did the new ebola strain escape, perhaps via some lab mishap that infected lab workers, or was the strain deliberately released in order to test if it works? See: http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/10/26/evidence-us-development-testing-airborne-ebola-robert-wenzel/ and http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/10/20/us-army-withheld-promise-germany-ebola-virus-wouldnt-weaponized/

The only intelligent and responsible policy is to stop all commercial flights to and from ebola areas. Health worker volunteers should be transported by military aircraft and should be required to undergo the necessary quarantine before being transported back to the US.

Why does the White House oppose the only responsible and intelligent policy? Why is Congress silent on the issue?

The resistance to a sane policy fosters the suspicions that the government or some conspiracy group intends to use ebola to declare martial law and herd the population or undesirable parts of it, into the FEMA camps that Halliburton was paid to construct (without the public ever being told the reason for the camps).

It is certainly strange that a government involved in long-term wars in the Middle East, the purpose of which is unclear to the public, and in fomenting conflict with both Russia and China, two countries armed with nuclear weapons, would so recklessly create more suspicions among the public of its motives, intentions, and competence.

Democracy requires that the public trust the government. Yet Washington does everything possible to destroy this trust and to present a picture of dysfunctional government with hidden and undeclared agendas.

clinton

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

Ron Paul called Hillary Clinton pro-Fed and pro-War, and these two traits may represent her strong points.

With the country poised to go to war over Ukraine, Hillary Clinton cannot be allowed to enter into the decision making in this frightening series of events or any other crises for that matter. A Hillary Clinton presidency would spell the sudden and decisive doom for this country. Is she worse than Obama? Undoubtedly, she would prove worse for the country than even the current President.

Hillary Clinton cannot be allowed to become president. Her treachery, propensity for criminal behavior and her depraved indifference for her fellow Americans, makes her at the moment, the most dangerous woman in America. SHE IS WORSE THAN OBAMA!

In every scandal that she has been a part of, the body count skyrockets, far beyond the normal actuaries of mortality. Nothing sticks to this woman. If Hillary ever becomes President, history has shown that she is capable of the greatest reign of terror ever perpetrated by a sitting President. Warmongers like John McCain are doing their best to lead the US into World War III on behalf of the globalist bankers in Ukraine. After reading the following, even an Obama phone recipient would be hard pressed to throw their blind support behind Hillary Clinton.

The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same

hillary-it-takes-a-socialist-to-raze-a-nationIn a case of the more things change, the more they stay the same, the scope of Hillary Clinton’s criminality cannot be covered in one article. In fact, I doubt that it could be covered in one book. The body count stories alone, associated with both Hillary and Bill, could fill volumes. By some estimates, the body count now tops 85 victims. Therefore, in the interest of brevity, a brief comparison will be made between the Clinton Whitewater affair and the Benghazi murders of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans. The undeniable conclusion that the reader will draw from these two comparative cases is that Hillary Clinton, one the President’s former top cabinet members, is, has been and probably always will be a sociopathic criminal with no conscience.

Whitewater and the Missing Billing Records

clinton whitewaterFor those who were old enough to remember, you will recall that Whitewater was a real estate development in Arkansas which became a nightmarish scandal for Bill and Hillary when it became insolvent. Clintons’ partner, Jim McDougal, owned a savings and loan association (i.e. Madison Guaranty) that hired Hillary and her firm, the Rose Law Firm. When the Savings and Loan institution failed, costing taxpayers $65 million, the Whitewater vacation development project collapsed as well. Hillary stated 99 times under oath in 1996, that she did not recall what work she did for Madison Guarantee. This is a stellar case in point why I believe that Hillary will never tell what she REALLY knows about the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens. After six hearings and $40 million dollars of investigations, Special Prosecutor, Ken Starr did not determine that the Clintons’ were innocent of criminal wrongdoing when he concluded that “This office has determined that the evidence was insufficient to prove to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt that either President or Mrs. Clinton knowingly participated in any criminal conduct … or knew of such conduct.” Prosecutors had previously subpoenaed Hillary’s billing records from Madison. However, Hillary continued to lie as she reported that she couldn’t find them. Two years later, the records turned up in the White House family residence under circumstances that Hillary has never been able to fully explain. Why she did not go to jail is a mystery. The best case scenario was that the First Couple were lying under oath and obstructing justice, just like Hillary has done with regard to the Chris Stevens murder.

The Whitewater Body Count

John Wilson was found dead from an apparent hanging suicide on May 18, 1993. He was a former Washington DC council member and claimed to have information on Whitewater at the time of his death. Jon Parnell Walker was an investigator for the RTC who was looking into the linkage between the Whitewater and Madison Savings & Loan bankruptcy. Walker “fell” from the top of the Lincoln Towers Building. Stanley Huggins was a principal in a Memphis law firm which headed a 1987 investigation into the loan practices of Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan. Stanley died in Delaware in July 1994 and the highly questionable reported cause of death was viral pneumonia.

clinton-mcdougal

Jim McDougal

Jim McDougal was a close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton. He was also their banker, and political ally prior to being sent to prison for eighteen felony convictions for his Whitewater related actions. A key Whitewater witness, McDougal died of a heart attack on March, 8, 1998, while, inexplicably, being held in solitary confinement. Solitary confinement? I thought high profile prisoners like McDougal went to Club Fed to serve out their terms, not solitary confinement. Of course, in solitary confinement, there are no witnesses to murder. McDougal was in position to have had intimate knowledge of Hillary’s Whitewater affairs, but dead men tell no tales. Johnny Lawhon died on March 29, 1998. The former Arkansas transmission specialist who discovered a pile of Whitewater documents in the trunk of an abandoned car on his property and turned them over to Ken Starr. Lawhon was killed in a car wreck two weeks after the McDougal death. Details of the “accident” have remained suspicious.

Clinton Is Backed By Criminals

hsu-1

Norman Hsu, major Campaign Contributor to Hillary Clinton

Both of the Clintons’ have a long history of questionable criminal associations. Because this is an article and not a book, I will use the Hsu case as an example of the many criminal associations that Hillary Clinton has participated in.   hsu 2The infamous Norman Hsu became one of Hillary’s biggest fundraisers in which he donated over $850,000 to her campaign, and his donations continued to the day that Hsu surrendered to the California State Superior Court after being found guilty of a Grand Theft conviction.  Hsu had been a fugitive from justice for over 15 years. Hsu became a fugitive when he failed to appear for sentencing by the court after pleading no contest to the Grand Theft charges. You might want to loosen your collar and adjust your eyeglasses. This means that Hillary Clinton was accepting money from a convicted criminal who was evading justice during the same exact time frame. Hsu’s crime was connected to raising more than a million dollars from investors for a phony business scheme which didn’t exist.  And true to the criminal nature of the Obama Administration, Hsu also gave $18,000 to Barack Obama election campaign. Doesn’t that make Hillary an accessory after the fact?

One is judged by the company one keeps

 The Benghazi Murders

clinton they knewThere is now proof that Obama was warned in advance of the coming attack in which Stevens begged for more protection and his impassioned plea was denied by Clinton.     As Stevens was begging for help after the attack had begun, General Hamm had activated a special forces team within minutes of learning that the embassy, which was really a CIA safe house, was under attack.

Gen_Carter_Ham

General Hamm

When General Hamm received his “stand down” orders from Panetta on behalf of Obama, he defiantly made plans to go ahead with the rescue and was arrested within minutes of contravening the order, by his second in command, General Rodriquez. Out to sea, Admiral Gayouette, the commander of Carrier Strike Group Three, was preparing to provide intelligence and air cover for General Hamm’s rescue team in violation of his standing orders and he was promptly relieved of command for allegations of inappropriate leadership judgment.” Both men were held for months in undisclosed locations, until after the 2012 election and then became part of the Obama body count as they were two of the 260+ senior command military officers that have been fired by Obama. As an aside, if there is any kind of a silver lining in these very dark clouds, it appears that much of the senior military leadership has had enough of the traitorous Obama and his den of corrupt criminals and some of them are willing to risk their career in the name of actually serving the American people.

gaouette-admiral

Admiral Gayouette

The evidence is clear. Clinton knew that Stevens was in grave danger and ordered extra security. Obama refused to support Clinton, purposely leaving Stevens exposed. At this point, Clinton had a choice…… Does she go along to get along and become an accomplice to murder? Or, does she resign and refuse to go along with the murderous intentions of Panetta and Obama? Even if Clinton had resigned that should not have been enough to avoid criminal charges of depraved indifference by failing to report a crime that she knew was going to happen and then did take place.She later did quit, but she never told what really happened. Clinton had both a moral and legal imperative to resign and then tell what she knew. General Hamm and Admiral Gayouette are clearly men who understand their moral and legal imperatives. They refused to obey an unlawful and unconstitutional order. Clinton, true to her criminal background and history of inappropriate choices, chose to go along, to get along. There can be no doubt that Clinton would have had limited options if she would have displayed the courage of Hamm and Gayouette and refused to obey an illegal order from Obama through Panetta. I also understand that it would have been gut wrenching to decide where she could have gone with this information? The logical choice is Eric Holder, the Attorney General. However, with Holder’s complicity in Fast and Furious, Clinton would have known that Holder was not an option and that he is just as corrupt as Obama. She could not have gone to the FBI, because it is controlled by the President. Local law enforcement has no jurisdiction. Now, before you start to feel sorry for Clinton, please realize that Congress threw her a lifeline. Clinton’s supporters have told me that her life would have been in danger, if she had told all to Congress, and my response was “You mean in the same way that Chris Stevens life was in danger?”

The Clot Heard Around the World

Leaders are supposed to possess both moral and physical courage. Do not feel sorry for Clinton, she was not totally without options. Congress gave her a chance to save her reputation and possibly her legal rear end. She could have told what she knew about Obama and Panetta being the butchers of Benghazi. Hillary’s testimony could have brought down this criminal administration. Instead, we find a Secretary of State who developed the Benghazi flu and “could not” testify. And when this strategy, designed to avoid congressional testimony, wore thin, Clinton demonstrated that she has a better head fake than hall of fame basketball star, Michael Jordan, when she suddenly developed an alleged blood clot near the brain. clinton 2016Clinton is still putting her political career and her loyalty to the democratic party ahead of her oath of office. Anyone, who has an IQ higher than room temperature, knows that Obama and Panetta let Stevens be murdered and their intent was deliberate. So, rather than doing the right thing, Clinton wants to appear to be protecting the President and ultimately the Democratic party. In my opinion, Clinton chose to take the proverbial political bullet so she could retain support from her party in order that she can run in 2016 with full party support. Meanwhile, Obama and Panetta made a decision to let Stevens get murdered to make the trail of evidence go cold with regard to their illegal gun running operations to Al-Qaeda, into Syria via Turkey, in this Middle East version of Fast and Furious. And Hillary simply goes along to get along. In the aftermath of Stevens murder, here sits Hillary Clinton placing her personal political ambition over the life of an ambassador who did not have to die. She is still breaking the law by obstructing justice and not telling what she knows. Ironically, if Clinton had done the right thing with regard to the murders of these four Americans, some people might have softened their views on her past criminality. However, at the end of the day, America needs to face the fact that Hillary Clinton is a criminal to the core. People like her are so used to using graft, corruption and murder, so often, to get what they want, they do not honestly know how to pursue personal goals without incorporating these variables into their decision making.

The Benghazi Victim Trail

Ambassador Chris Stevens along with Sean Smith,  Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed in a planned terrorist attack in Libya on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. Some of the four victims families render a harsh verdict of the Obama Administration.  Sean Smith’s mother. Patricia Smith, has said that the president ‘murdered her son’ and Tyrone Woods’ father has echoed her sentiment. And Hillary went along to get along.

Just Like Slick Willie, Hillary Is Made Out of Teflon With regard to Benghazi

Did Hillary go down with the Obama ship? It is not likely that she will have to worry about that possibility. As Congress buckled and allowed the Wall Street bankers to plunder and subsequently destroy the economy through unconstitutional and illegal bail outs, Congress will buckle again in the Benghazi affair because they will not bite that hand that ultimately feeds them their insider deals which leads to their insider trading opportunities that has been admitted to by Nancy Pelosi. If you understand the contents of this paragraph, then you understand why the American empire is crumbling right before our eyes.

Imperialism 5

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

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

The Russo-Chinese Energy Deals

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

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

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

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

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

The fragmenting of NATO

The fragmenting of NATO

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

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

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

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

Germany, France and Italy’s Motivation to Leave NATO

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

putin natural gas map

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

Britain Is Waffling At the Threat of the Coming World War

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

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

Conservative Defense Secretary Lord King

A Labor Party counterpart Lord Browne

Former Foreign Secretaries Margaret Beckett and David Owen

Former NATO Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, Lord Richards

Former Liberal Democrat leader Sir Menzies Campbell

John McColl, former Chief of the Defense Staff,

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

The above and other prominent UK leaders stated the following:

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Eurasian Economic Union (EAU)

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

Putin’s Red Dawn “Checkmate America” Strategy

Putin and Ortega

Putin and Ortega

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

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

 

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

 

putin-and-correa

Putin and Correa

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

 

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

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

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

 

putin-and-castro

Putin and Castro

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

 

Conclusion

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

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

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

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

Obama Laugh 1

Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BLUE PILL ANYONE?
