All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to … remain silent – Thomas Jefferson
Many of us in the alternative media express constant disappointment that so many of our fellow citizens do not fight back against the forces of the NWO. This article will explore the recent journeys of two individuals, Blaine Cooper and myself, in an effort to accurately explain why so many of fellow citizens grovel like a flock of sheep in the face of governmental tyranny being carried out on behalf of the NWO.
I Like Contrarians
On my talk show and in my articles, I like to periodically give attention to individuals and groups who are making a difference in the fight against our out of control tyrannical government. Blaine Cooper is one of these people. The Tom Petty classic song, “I Won’t Back Down,” accurately applies to Blaine Cooper.
Blaine Cooper is awake and he is disgusted with the corrupt leadership of this country. By all accounts, he is a good man and he will not be silenced in the face of abject tyranny running rampant over the citizens of this country. Cooper knows that our government has been hijacked by criminal elements and he is not shy about making his feelings known to the powers that be.
Unfortunately, Mr. Cooper has learned that freedom is not free and he has begun to pay a price for being outspoken about the criminals that are running this country into the ground, for their own personal benefit.
Facebook, the Direct Pipeline to the American Stasi
Blaine Cooper was accused by the federal government of promoting dangerous ideas because he speaks his mind. Recently Cooper published the following Facebook post:
It is obvious that Mr. Cooper is speaking about the potential day when Federal agents and local police are ordered to carry out unlawful orders against American citizens such as gun confiscations and NDAA type of illegal detentions.
In this specific Facebook post, Cooper wonders out loud if and when that day comes, will the police and the Federal agents stand with the people, or will the people have to fight against the forces of law enforcement in order to survive? This is a legitimate question. For the record Mr. FBI agents, I wonder the same exact thing every time I watch your agents carry out another act of tyranny against innocent American citizens.
Every Move You Make, Every Breath You Take, the FBI Is Watching You
Although Cooper stated quite clearly that he hopes that an armed confrontation will NOT occur with law enforcement officials, the Federal government does not recognize Mr. Cooper’s First Amendment freedom of speech rights to voice objections to the corruption he is seeing on a daily basis. In his Facebook post, Cooper is not making a direct threat against any identifiable person or organization. But don’t confuse the FBI with the facts as they moved, within mere hours of the post appearing on Facebook, to immediately silence Cooper. It is obvious that the FBI views an American citizen who opposes the unfolding of the emerging police state as a terrorist. The FBI cannot have Americans stating that will they defend their civil liberties against enemies, both foreign and domestic.
Subsequently, the FBI paid Mr. Cooper a visit. According to Police State USA, Cooper was contacted at home by the Prescott Valley (AZ) Police and was told that he must come to the police station to speak with the FBI unless he wanted the FBI to come ransack his house for failing to submit to the Federal agents.
When Cooper showed up for the “interview,” the FBI had a copy of every Facebook post that he had ever made including personal information about his wife and parents. You see, in the mafia, they just don’t take you out, they will go after your family as well. Unable to find any evidence of terrorist activity, the FBI had to let Cooper go.
A Caveat About Talking to Any Federal Agent
Under Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001, did you know that it is a crime to tell a lie to the federal government? Even if your lie is verbal and not offered under oath? Even if you have received no warnings of any kind, if the Feds say you lied, you did and you go to jail! Even if you are not trying to cheat the government out of money, it is a crime to lie! Even if the government is not actually fooled by your falsehood, you will go to jail! You can go to prison if you misspeak about anything that the Feds determine is not true. If you give the wrong year that you got your last parking ticket, you can go to prison. You can do five years if you misspeak and give inaccurate information about what you had for breakfast on the first Saturday of the previous month. This is how the government mafia works and NOBODY should ever speak with them without a lawyer present and without the entire event being filmed.
Martha Stewart did not go to prison for what she did wrong. She went to prison because Federal agents said that she lied when they interviewed her. I have repeatedly stated this fact in my articles and columns, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, talk to the Feds by yourself. It is your word against theirs and they lie.
Blaine Cooper was lucky. If you are ever in the same situation as Blaine Cooper and Martha Stewart, and the Feds are threatening to trash your house for failing to cooperate, take a lawyer with you. And until you can get an attorney to be present at all questioning, invoke the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer ANY and ALL questions. If the Feds do not cooperate with your right to avoid self-incrimination, or your right to protect yourself from their lies, call the media and invite family and friends to videotape.
If Thomas Jefferson Was On Facebook He’d Be Declared An Enemy Combatant
Thomas Jefferson had as much to do with creating our Constitutional Republic as anyone, yet he despised and mistrusted government. He frequently stated that our countrymen had more to fear from the bankers and the government than the standing armies of a foreign government. Can you imagine what would have happened if Jefferson was ever on Facebook and he posted one of his most famous quotes?
Periodic revolution, “at least once every 20 years,” was “a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.”
It is quite clear that Feds would have subjected Jefferson to intense scrutiny and interrogation and certainly, Federal officials would be looking for the slightest deception, or misspeak, in order to put one of the greatest patriots in American history in prison.
Blaine Cooper Won’t Back
The Federal government be damned, Cooper is not about to be deterred by Federal agents. To Cooper’s credit, he is not done confronting the criminal Federal government. Recently, Cooper confronted Senator John McCain at a public meeting for supporting the al-Qaeda backed Syrian rebels in their illegitimate fight against Assad. Cooper, as I have previously stated, also called the chemical weapons attack upon the citizens of Damascus, a false flag event. Cooper told McCain that he should be arrested and charged with treason for his actions. McCain appeared as if he wanted to crawl into a hole as his discomfort with Cooper’s confrontation was quite evident. Here is Cooper’s confrontation with Senator McCain.
The Federal Government Is Not Done Harassing Cooper
I can speak from personal experience that the Federal government is not done with Blaine Cooper. He can expect to have his taxes audited. He can expect to hear clicks on his phone during conversations. He can expect emails to disappear. And if he becomes a real pain in the backside, he will face increasing acts of intimidation and violence as I did.
One of the faces of tyranny
For an eight year period, I led a fight against the John McCain led globalists as they attempted to steal the homes and properties of 300 of my rural neighbors without being offered one dime of compensation in order to acquire free land in which to put a Canamex Corridor Highway through our area which also happens to sit on the state of Arizona’s largest underground water aquifer. During my much publicized fight against the McCain led forces, I experienced extreme (coincidental) harassment:
■My emails between our opposition leadership continually disappeared
■I received death threats which warned me to back off
■Late one night while driving to my country home on a lonely road, a car attempted to run me off the road and then pursued me for 10 minutes. The entire event was recorded because I was on the phone with 911. I was able to get the license plate number and a description of the driver. The event only ended because I was able to elicit help from a group of people. The County Sheriff would not respond to my call. Two hours later, I received a cell phone call from a deputy asking what I had done to provoke the incident. The deputy said he was able to trace the identity of the driver but was refusing to do anything. The following business day, I attempted to obtain the 911 calls and was going to ask the county DA for help. However, the 911 tapes magically disappeared.
■Near the end of July of 2009, while interviewing Jim Marrs on my talk show from a home studio in Phoenix, two individuals fired 8 shots over the house I was in. Further, several members of my family were also present. My news director had to help me finish the show as we all scrambled for cover. There were at least a dozen calls that went to 911 from inside the house and we later learned that there were a dozen “shots fired calsl” from the neighbors. The house sits three minutes from police headquarters and they took 30 minutes to respond. The police, in their final report concluded that the event in question was actually fireworks being set off a few blocks away. Really? There were two eyewitnesses who saw the shooters.
Of course our well-publicized fight against the attempted theft of our properties and these acts of violence and intimidation are merely coincidences and figments of my imagination. The moral of the story is that the Federal government is not done with Blaine Cooper. And inside of these two stories, it is plain to see why more people do not get involved, even when they can clearly see how wrong things have become.
The Sheep Continue to Acquiesce
Blaine Cooper would probably tell you that he is no hero and does not consider himself to be extraordinarily brave. He is just pissed off as sees this country going down the toilet. I feel the same way. Before my battle with the globalists in an effort to save my home, I had a life that was working very well. As a result of my fight against tyrannical government, the quality of my life has indeed suffered. People that used to call me friend, now think I have lost my mind. Cooper is about to discover the same exact thing. If you pick up your cross and fight against this abject and unrelenting evil, you will face harassment and you could even lose your life as did Breitbart, Swartz and Hastings. However, what most pretend activists don’t realize, is that the wages of apathy will culminate in a destroyed life and eventually a premature death. Do you want to die on your or in a bent over kneeling position on the ground?
What you don’t know can and will hurt you. And what you don’t do can kill you.
Under the NWO, there is no such thing as going along to get along.
