So What Do We Do With This Information Anyway?- Part Two

In part one, we went over some of the deceptions and challenges we face today on this planet. Despite the claim that mankind is “evolving”, the evidence of growth is pretty sparse. Immorality has become part of the accepted norm. Parents with children have to cringe at some of the programming on TV these days. Daytime TV talk shows have guests that cover personal issues that belong in the bedroom not on national television. Some of the answers in Family Feud even cause one to shake one’s head these days they are so crude.

Wars are an ongoing and constant part of our lives. The only advancement over the Old Testament times is that the technology has increased efficiency and the threat that mankind can completely eliminate all life on the planet if it carries these conflicts too far. As far as a difference in behavior? What change? Mankind is just as violent today as he was in the recorded history of ancient times it seems. The only thing that has evolved is the technology mankind uses to kill themselves.

Let’s Put a Little Perspective on This

Take a careful look at the picture to the right. It is an actual photograph taken in 1990 from 3.7 Billion miles away from our planet by Voyager 1 (13 years after it was launched). Note the brownish

The Earth appears as a tiny dot in the brown band within the darkness of deep space 3.7 Billion miles away.

The Earth appears as a tiny dot in the brown band within the darkness of deep space 3.7 Billion miles away.

band to the right of the image. About halfway up this band there is a tiny, little bluish-white speck. That’s our planet. A more expanded view is available in this YouTube clip from the DVD The Privileged Planet (See whole DVD presentation on YouTube here.). At the end of a 6 minute presentation you can view here, this picture is zoomed in on to present a closer perspective.

So what can we learn from this?

Being objective and putting aside speculation, here’s what we must accept about our place in the universe.

We are an orb of material somehow suspended in a vacuum. The biblical explanation in Job written over 3,500 years ago is that God “stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.” Job 26:7

I’m not sure there is a scientific explanation that can explain this. Factually speaking, its a mysterious circumstance that we all take for granted. However, it get’s even more mysterious.

Our planet is not only suspended in space but it is also suspended in the perfect position in our galaxy and solar system to support life. As the documentary based on the book The Privileged Planet points out, there are over 20 factors that are perfectly aligned to support life on this planet. Calculating the odds it would be inconceivable as to how these factors could come together by accident or by themselves.

Additionally, based on the evidence, our planet is the only planet known to us capable of supporting life. I’m not talking about speculations or fantasies like Star Wars (unless you think it was a documentary) but actual evidence. The fact is, there is NO evidence that life exists anywhere but here. The Voyager photograph supports this as it appears that the only illuminated planet in this deep space photo is the earth! And we all know that without the sun illuminating this planet, life as we know it would not be possible.

So What’s the Point?

Good question. Let’s consider it.

The point is that what you accept as the answer to the above mystery, that is whether life on this planet is generated by a Supreme Being. or whether life generated itself spontaneously without the input of an intelligent agent through evolutionary processes, will determine what direction you turn towards for solutions to the problems humanity is facing.

Will we turn to man for the answers? About 6,000 years of recorded history have demonstrated how well that has worked so far. I suggest that the results have been less than stellar.

Should we turn to God for the answer? Well, which one? The God of the bible, Allah, the Jehovah Witness solutions, Buddhism, Hinduism?

Where Do You Stand?

After quite a while of looking at the issues from political, economic, social and spiritual perspectives I lean towards a created universe. My solutions also lean towards a biblical perspective.

However, you may be one who considers themselves an evolutionist or believe that all of this just happened without the input of any intelligence all by itself. Your solutions then could not, of course, include God. They would necessarily place man in control.

Nevertheless, however you decide to make sense of the facts of our place in this universe will determine what solutions you seek and accept.

Will you turn to God based solutions or man based solutions? There really is no in between. Either this universe was created or it created itself.

Keep in mind that man based solutions would be Communist and Socialist oriented whereby the State becomes the Supreme Being and the New World Order is world government run by man.

Biblically based solutions would include principles and perspectives from the bible. These would ultimately place God as the controlling interest of course.

At any rate, all of this is just food for thought to lend a bit of perspective on the issues we face today. I invite responses and questions. But I’ll leave this where it is for now- mired with questions and choices based on your answers to those questions.

Another Obama Sell Out- The Paris Climate Change Deal

GoreApplaudingParisClimateDeal

Fat Albert Liked the Deal of Course

I find it ironic that the new Paris Climate Change deal is called COP21 which is short for 21st Conference of Parties. It’s could just as well be short for 21st Century Cop it seems. That is, a global climate change cop which is the role this deal places into the hands of the UN at the expense of U.S. sovereignty.

I also find it interesting that by 2018 the 200 countries in the deal have to submit their climate change plans in 5 year increments. Five year planning is straight out of the Communist playbook for the “planned”economy model. A model used by the tyrannical, brutal regimes of Mao Tse Tung and Josef Stalin, both of whom were Communists as well as avowed atheists.

5 Year Planning- A Successful Model to Emulate?

It was during Mao’s 5 year Great Leap Forward from 1958 to 1963 that over 40 million people starved to death under the failed agricultural policies of that intended leap forward. Unfortunately, for the people, (You know of the “power to the people” group.) it was a leap backwards in both population and production. And unfortunately, truly a dead end for millions. Jasper Becker‘s book on the topic Hungry Ghosts wrote about an article that appeared in Hong Kong’s Kaifang Magazine in 1994 which related a case where:

“Parents ordered their 7 year old daughter to boil some water to cook their little son. When the baby was eaten, the daughter was told to boil some more water. Realizing that she would be next she knelt down, ‘begging her father not to eat her and saying “I will do anything if you do not eat me.”

Cannibalism during the Great Leap Forward was not uncommon BTW. Becker devoted an entire chapter to the topic in his book.

Five year planning is a Communist economic hallmark and has inevitably failed, time and again. It is also a tell tale sign of where this climate change deal is coming from as well.

BTW, What Happened to Global Warming?

Another interesting facet of this deal is that in recent years as global temperatures have dropped the catch phrase for saving us from ourselves (by placing government in complete authority over energy production) has changed from global warming to climate change. So, what happened to global warming? Why the change of catch phrase?

As global temperatures have dropped, the name was changed to save face when climate facts trumped media and UN hype. It also had the added benefit of confusing the public as well. Global warming is a known commodity. Climate change though? That is as nebulous a description as the “war on terror”. Meanwhile, the Federal government is busy expanding the definitions for labeling one a terrorist.

The label climate change is just as nebulous. I mean really what is scary about climate change? I live in a temperate zone. The climate changes 4 times a year. Do I now need to have these changes regulated? We have Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. I sure am thankful that the government has stepped in to regulate the change of seasons. I guess……anyway.

Can there perhaps be something more to this climate change stuff than meets the eye?

Obama Applauds the Agreement- So Does the CFR

ObamaPraisingParisClimateChgDeal

Obama was smugly happy that his Marxist buds’s in the UN passed the deal. In an address from the White House he said:

“I want to give a special thanks to Secretary John Kerry, my Senior Advisor Brian Deese, Chief Negotiator Todd Stern and everyone on their teams for their outstanding work and making America proud. I also want to thank the people of 200 nations, large and small, developed and developing, for working together to confront a threat to the people of all nations. Together we have shown whats possible when the world stands as one. Today the American people can be proud because this historic agreement is a tribute to American leadership. Over the past 7 years we’ve transformed America into the global leader in fighting climate change.

First of all, the deal has the footprints of the globalist, bankster led Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) all over it. John Kerry is a member of this insider group. Todd Stern, mentioned as Chief Negotiator, is a member of the CFR as well. Sure enough, the CFR site applauds the deal as well with a lead article entitled, Two Cheers for the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

Obama tells us that we are “making America proud”? He tells us today, “Americans can be proud”? He tells us “we’ve transformed America into the global leader in fighting climate change?

First of all, what are Americans supposed to be proud of exactly? Fighting climate change? Didn’t know we were in a fight to begin with. I thought climates simply changed naturally. I don’t remember asking him to push for this deal that trades away American sovereignty to the UN. Personally, having less of a nation and part of a group of 200 plus on which we are on a level playing field with tiny, undeveloped nations doesn’t make me swell with American-based pride. But hey, maybe that’s just me.

The fact is, most Americans have little to no idea of what is going on here? To me, this is yet another example of the authority of the State advancing itself into the position of parent over the citizens seen as its children. The negotiators for this deal are members of elitist globalist organizations like the CFR, whose members include all of the too big to fail banks and whose honorary Chairman is David C. Rockefeller. Are we to be proud that they are making broad based decisions for us? Particularly since those decisions benefit Corporations and not the people in the end. Lets take a closer look at that part.

Cui Bono? “To Whose Profit”

Rolling Stone wrote an article in 2010 called the Great American Bubble Machine. It was an article directed primarily at Goldman Sachs, Founders level Corporate member of the CFR. The 6th bubble covered in the article was global warming (It was still global warming then instead of the more nebulous climate change label of today.). They discussed a key component of the Paris deal, then known as Cap and Trade aimed at climate control but rather control of energy production. Here’s what they had to say about it:

The new game in town, the next bubble, is in carbon credits — a booming trillion dollar market that barely even exists yet, but will if the Democratic Party that it gave $4,452,585 to in the last election manages to push into existence a groundbreaking new commodities bubble, disguised as an “environmental plan,” called cap-and-trade.

The new carbon credit market is a virtual repeat of the commodities-market casino that’s been kind to Goldman, except it has one delicious new wrinkle: If the plan goes forward as expected, the rise in prices will be government-mandated. Goldman won’t even have to rig the game. It will be rigged in advance.

Here’s how it works: If the bill passes, there will be limits for coal plants, utilities, natural-gas distributors and numerous other industries on the amount of carbon emissions (a.k.a. greenhouse gases) they can produce per year. If the companies go over their allotment, they will be able to buy “allocations” or credits from other companies that have managed to produce fewer emissions. President Obama conservatively estimates that about $646 billion worth of carbon credits will be auctioned in the first seven years; one of his top economic aides speculates that the real number might be twice or even three times that amount.

The feature of this plan that has special appeal to speculators is that the “cap” on carbon will be continually lowered by the government, which means that carbon credits will become more and more scarce with each passing year. Which means that this is a brand new commodities market where the main commodity to be traded is guaranteed to rise in price over time. The volume of this new market will be upwards of a trillion dollars annually; for comparison‘s sake, the annual combined revenues of all electricity suppliers in the U.S. total $320 billion.

Goldman wants this bill. The plan is (1) to get in on the ground floor of paradigm-shifting legislation, (2) make sure that they’re the profit-making slice of that paradigm and (3) make sure the slice is a big slice. Goldman started pushing hard for cap-and-trade long ago, but things really ramped up last year when the firm spent $3.5 million to lobby climate issues.

In addition to the windfall to leading Corporate members of the CFR, Al Gore applauding the deal above is also heavily invested in the potential cap and trade industry. He stands to profit handily from this deal. So is it any wonder that both the CFR and Gore applaud this deal?

More American Sovereignty Handed Over

While the Corporate motivations are transparent, Obama’s is a little more concealed. The fact is, Obama is trading away more of our self-governance to the UN (A CFR construction from the get go BTW.) He hasn’t been the first President to do so. It’s been going on for decades. Heck, every time our troops are placed under NATO, they are transferred from U.S. troops into UN troops. This, of course, never makes it to the public through our mainstream media.

The ultimate control in this deal is the UN as well. “The agreement calls for a signature ceremony in April 2016, and requests that the U.N. Secretary-General keep the agreement open for signing until April 2017.”

This places the U.S. on an equal playing field with all of the countries in the deal “large and small, developed and undeveloped” as Obama put it in his White House address.

But Wait, There’s More!

Oh yes, and in addition to the loss of sovereignty to the UN and its Communist oriented membership; a significant and steady rise in energy costs and Corporate cronyism, there is yet another poke in the eye of the American public. “The agreement calls for developed countries to raise at least $100 billion annually in order to assist developing countries.”

Well now, where do you think the lion’s share of that money will come from? Guess who will foot the bill? Hint: It won’t be Corporations.

I wonder just how proud are we going to feel while we are adopting more taxation along with significantly rising cost of energy while the privileged few Corporations feast on our offerings? We are already taxed to the tune of over half of our incomes meaning we are wage slaves half a year. Do we need even more taxes? Does this fall into the Obama, “Change We Need” part of the Obama plan to save America?

Under a Marxist economy, you level wealth down by increasing taxation and transferring the wealth.  Don’t look too closely but that is exactly what this plan does!

PinnochioDonkeyBoys

Are We All Like the Lost Boys Too?

Don’t know about you but I see the New World Order being unfolded right before our very eyes.

Debt is growing. The State is adopting more control over the citizens. More of our Constitutionally granted sovereignty is being handed over to the global government template, the UN.

Meanwhile, most of us are wrapped up in who will win Survivor, The Voice and the Super Bowl or another equivalent major sport.

Like the Lost Boys in Pinocchio, we are playing while our so-called leaders are turning us into wage slave donkeys. Hee haw, the jokes on us and it ain’t funny.

So What Do You Do With This Information Anyway?- Part One

I was having an email discussion with someone the other day discussing the topic of our perverted system. Her conclusion was that life was weird and we are all nuts. I guess it can look that way if you don’t see the forest for the trees. That is, you focus too closely on the events and miss the overall. So what do you do with this information anyway?

I mean, if you take it at face value, it’s all one big mess. There are conflicts everywhere from dysfunctional families to dysfunctional nations. It seems like a new war starts up every few months or so. Natural disasters appear to be growing, not to mention the human generated ones. Hunger in our world is a very real problem and if the central banking model is taken to its historical

Mommy, I'm hungry. Food mommy, please.

Mommy, I’m hungry. Food mommy, please.

conclusion, it will get worse, far worse. And it will not be poor third world children but our children. Perhaps, even us. As Bob Dylan once crooned:

And what’ll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
And what’ll you do now my darling young one?
I’m a-goin’ back out ‘fore the rain starts a-fallin’
I’ll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest
Where the people are a many and their hands are all empty
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison
Where the executioner’s face is always well hidden
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
Where black is the color, where none is the number
And I’ll tell and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I’ll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin’
But I’ll know my songs well before I start singin’
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

Well before Dylan was on the planet, Jesus disciples asked him privately on the Mount of Olives after he predicted the fall of the temple and subsequently Jerusalem:

“Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

And Jesus answered and said to them:

“Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:3-8

The Beginnings of Sorrows?

Many biblically based Christians feel as though what is happening today may be pointing to the end of times and the 2nd coming of Christ as predicted in prophecy throughout the bible and fleshed out in The Revelation written by the apostle John while exiled on the island of Patmos (after being dipped in boiling oil I may add).

Is this really the beginning of sorrows and the end of this generation? My logical, analytical mind has me rejecting the possibility of the 2nd coming. That couldn’t possibly happen could it? How could Christ come again in the clouds on a white horse with all of the warrior angels? That is preposterous and illogical a part of me thinks.

On the other hand, prophecy in the bible (the only book of any religion that contains prophecy) has been uncannily accurate starting with the prisoner from Jerusalem Daniel’s dream interpretation to Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon predicting historical changes even leading up to the present. So do we just ignore it and cast it aside as that religious stuff? Or perchance is it really the beginning of sorrows? Are we in the “end game” or perhaps just entering into it?

It is One Possibility?

Dylan crooned, “a hard rain’s gonna fall“. Christ said, “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Where is the evidence for either predicted scenario to come to pass one may ask? Let’s take a quick glance. Remember, the words are not fact based descriptions but rather somewhat symbolic in nature. Which is to say that they are pointing at events not describing them in detail. They are descriptions of the overall condition of our planet, general in nature but specific in category.

ChinaElectronicWasteDumping

Electronic Waste Pile in Guiyu, China

Dylan: “the pellets of poison are flooding their waters“. Can anyone deny that our planet is in need of a facelift and that our waters are becoming poisoned? Portions of China are becoming waste dumps for used electronics including their rivers. Pharmaceuticals in the water are becoming another source of pollution being overlooked. After a hospice patient dies the drugs, including CII or opiate-like drugs for pain, are not returned but  rather dumped into the water. And there is more.

Christ’s first response to his disciples about when will this happen was: “Take heed that no man deceive you” Why that response? That didn’t answer their question did it? Or did it?

ISIS/ISIL: An American Product?

The premise of this blog is deception abounds in the world today. The media cartel spins everything leaving out critical background information. For example, ISIS or ISIL (Islamic State essentially) is now a major enemy. What is left out of the equation is that ISIS/ISIL arose with the help of our s0-called “leaders”. In an article in the New American, entitled ISIS: The Best Terror Threat U.S. Tax Money Can Buy, one can see the manner in which this terror organization arose and it included U.S. help!

Now, don’t you think this information would be important for us to know? Why is it conveniently left out of the media reporting? As Christ stated thousands of years ago, “Take heed that….” Remember, what you don’t know won’t hurt you….or will it?

The Rothschild Formula

G. Edward Griffin in his book The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve fleshes out what he calls, The Rothschild Formula. It forms a template for how the central banking cartels create enemies. Why one may ask? With enemies war and its subsequent debt (which these parasites need and feed upon to further their debt based system) is not only possible but in their media controlled circus inevitable:

1. War is the ultimate discipline to any government. If it can successfully meet the challenge of war, it will survive. If it cannot, it will perish. All else is secondary. The sanctity of its laws, the prosperity of its citizens, and the solvency of it treasury will be quickly sacrificed by any government in its primal act of self-survival.

2. All that is necessary, therefore, to ensure that a government will maintain or expand its debt is to involve it in war or the threat of war. The greater the threat and the more destructive the war, the greater the need for debt.

3. To involve a country in war or the threat of war, it will be necessary for it to have enemies with credible military might. If such enemies already exist, all the better. If they exist but lack military strength, it will be necessary to provide them the money to build their war machine. If an enemy does not exist at all, then it will be necessary to create one by financing the rise of a hostile regime.

4. The ultimate obstacle is a government which declines to finance its wars through debt. Although this seldom happens, when it does, it will be necessary to encourage internal political opposition, insurrection, or revolution to replace that government with one that is more compliant to our will. The assassination of heads of state could play an important role in this process.

5. No nation can be allowed to remain militarily stronger than its adversaries, for that could lead to peace and a reduction of debt. To accomplish this balance of power, it may be necessary to finance both sides of the conflict. Unless one of the combatants is hostile to our interests and, therefore, must be destroyed, neither side should be allowed a decisive victory or defeat. While we must always proclaim the virtues of peace, the unspoken objective is perpetual war.

Read the formula above and see if it doesn’t seem to fit the constant conflict in our world today and our global central banking system. As previously mentioned in this blog, War is a Racket! And the banking cartel thrives upon it. There are multi-millions of military in the world today in over 171 nations. As Smedley Butler asked, tongue in cheek, in War is a Racket, “Hell’s bells are they being trained to be dancers?” Obviously not.

As Christ stated: “You will hear of wars and rumours of wars.” and as Dylan stated “The executioner’s face is always well hidden.” Obviously, we are not expected to focus on the high dividends war pays to the real executioners. We are led to focus instead on the enemy, oftentimes the end product of the Rothschild formula above.

Now What?

As noted in the title what are we to do with this information anyway? We see wars and rumours of wars growing, nations rising against nation. We see famines (world hunger), pestilences (bird flu etc.), and earthquakes (a symbolic representation of natural disasters) growing as well. Is this really the end times or simply an outcropping of population growth, perhaps both?

No one can say for sure. Even Christ cautioned, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” Matthew 24:44 So, one can only look for the signs and when they grow know that the hour is nearer and “be ye also ready”.

How can one then, be ready? A good question and one with some answers that we can take a look at. I will explore this further in the next post attempting to provide some direction to the question first asked in this post: So what do we do with this information anyway?

A light hearted but honest cartoon which appeared on SNL one time only in 1998. You can see why. Just some food for thought:

San Bernardino Shooting, Yet Another Recent Example of the Failure of Gun Control

Ok, 14 Americans are dead, 16 injured. Immediately, Obama pushes for more gun control but urges prudence on labeling this a terrorist act or identifying Islamic terrorist connections. Why so careful about the connection to so-called radical Islam but so quick to jump on the gun control bandwagon?

It should be transparent by now that Obama, the closet Marxist, favors gun control over acts of terror since he uses every single case of a shooting to highlight the need for more gun control. Permit me to speculate here but one of the best ways to impose tyranny is to disarm the population. Marxism and the New World Order require both, i.e, a disarmed population and tyranny.

In front of the UN building in NYC. The UN's stance on gun control anyone?

In front of the UN building in NYC. Notice the Chosen Weapon- A Non-Military Handgun

Paris- The Failure of Gun Control

Paris has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world. Heck even the police cannot carry weapons in Paris. How did that work out for the people killed over there? Seven shooters killed or injured over 500 people in about 30 minutes (an average of 70 per shooter). Since there was no opposition, they calmly reloaded 3 or 4 times killing people lying on the floor of the movie theater venue for example with no resistance in sight. I wonder how that would have played out in an armed population?

Why is it that the sites chosen are invariably “gun free” zones? The Batman shooter- a gun free theater. Virginia Tech shooting– gun free campus. Texas army base shooting- gun free military base. (Yes, the soldiers are not permitted to carry on the base.) Anyone seeing a pattern here?

Yet Another Failure, San Bernardino

Once again, the failure of gun control raises its ugly head. The media of course ignore it but the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, the site of the recent massacre of innocents by a husband and wife, is another gun-free zone. This is never really highlighted by the media however. Instead, Obama’s gun control comments take precedence.

Why does the media choose to ignore the obvious fact that this shooting was conducted in a “gun-free” zone? We know they hardly mention or completely ignore the connection between mass shootings and psychotropic drugs over the past 20 years. Instead the focus is on the weapon used, not the connection between drugs and gun free zones.

It may be easy to make the connection between advertiser revenues and drugs. According to the National Institute for Health Care Management (NIHCM Foundation) in their year 2000 study (the latest they have on the issue on their site):

  • Prescription drugs advertised directly to consumers are now the largest and fastest selling medicines increasing 19% 1999.
  • Just 25 top-selling medicines promoted directly to consumers accounted for 40.7% — or $7.2 billion — of the overall $17.7 billion increase in retail drug spending in 1999.
  • The same 25 top-selling drugs had an aggregate one-year sales growth in 1999 of 43.2%. The growth in sales for all other drugs was 13.3 %.
  • Doctors wrote 34.2% more prescriptions in 1999 than in 1998 for the 25 DTC- promoted drugs that contributed most to overall drug spending.
  • Doctors wrote only 5.1% more prescriptions for all other prescription drugs.
  • The top 25 most heavily advertised drugs in 1999 accounted for 77% of all mass media advertising dollars for prescription drugs.

I think its safe to conclude that the media will not bite the hand that feeds it. We all can observe that since this study was done, ads on TV from Big Pharma have increased significantly. The connection between gun free zones and shootings or the gun control vs. no gun control issue is obviously less transparent.

What is the Connection Between the Media Reporting and Gun Control?

As pointed out on the home page, there is a massive monopolization of the media by Corporations. So it stands to reason that if you work for them and wish to remain employed, the spin you choose to apply will be that approved by those who pay you, the owners or controllers of the media.

Navy_Global_Force

How Is It “America’s Navy” If It Serving Under NATO, a UN Agency? Who Pays the Debt Incurred BTW?

Do the owners have an agenda then? Of course, they do. One doesn’t have to do a great deal of tedious research to determine their agenda of globalization. It is now accepted as fact that it is necessary for the United States to be fighting wars on foreign soils for decades now on the other side of the planet. As noted before in this blog, the Navy was running commercials ending with the catch phrase, Navy, A Global Force for Good. The assumption being that we are the policeman of the planet generating more debt for our citizens serving global needs.

Who pays the debt incurred? Who benefits the most from the debt? Who benefits the least? How is it “America’s Navy” if it is serving under NATO and the UN.? Do the nations served inherit any of the debt generated for the services of our Navy? Do our citizens get to choose any of the missions whose debt we inherit? How then is it “America’s Navy”? American’s don’t choose where to send it do they?

So just what is the connection between media reporting and gun control? Honest answers to the above questions lead us away from what the media would have us assume. Our military is being used by the UN under NATO to fight foreign wars etc. yet the UN is pushing for global gun control emphasizing control of weapons used for civilian protection. Meanwhile, the 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council are the 5 largest arms dealers in the world. Anyone talking about controlling the military?

Additionally, one world government can only be enforced under a tyrannical reign as in Communist run countries where authority controls the people under the tyranny of a police state. There is a human cost for disarmament. A good read on this issue is Death by Gun Control by Aaron Zelman and Richard W. Stevens. Curiously however, it is now out of print and the prices are jacked up on Amazon. Always seems to happen to books that pull away that curtain from the wizard it seems. I wonder why?

May I suggest that gun control is not really aimed at control of the gun but rather control of the people. As noted in the book above, Death by Gun Control, all genocides are proceeded by gun control or citizen disarmament as in Nazi Germany, Rwanda, China, Cambodia, Russia and others.

Professors Say Elf on the Shelf Bad for Kids, But Let’s Dig a Little Deeper

Philosopher and cultural theorist Michel Foucault warned of a 1984 style society which is under constant surveillance. In the late 18th century Philosopher Jeremy Bentham designed the panopticon. This building is a type of prison wherein all the cells are visible from the center thereby engendering the feeling that someone is watching you, even if you know the contrary. In the panopticon, the inmates never know when they are being watched so they are forced to follow the rules all the time or risk even more punishment.Elf on the Shelf

According to Laura Pinto and Selena Nemorin, the Elf on the Shelf model raises the question that this cute little elf may be “preparing a generation of children to accept, not question, increasingly intrusive (albeit whimsically packaged) modes of surveillance.” A panopticon society of sorts in which the citizens like Orwell’s 1984 State are under constant watch by “Big Brother.”

In the paper written for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the authors claim that, “The Elf on the Shelf serves functions that are aligned to the official functions of the panopticon,……In doing so, it contributes to the shaping of children as governable subjects.”

A Little Further Down the Rabbit Hole

Be that as it may, now that this can of worms has been opened I think we can go a little further down the rabbit hole- children’s shows. Now, I know that this may be considered an assault on some parental “sacred cows” but pause for a moment and ponder if you will.

We all love Sesame Street don’t we? I mean two generations of children now have delighted to Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, Elmo and company right? After all, they not only teach our children useful skills like learning the alphabet, numbers, colors, basic concepts etc. but they are also so lovable too. I don’t mean to pick on Sesame Street or Peppa the Pig or any of the other children’s shows because my children grew up on them as well, but there may another side to this issue that we may have not considered.

SesameStMuppets

That is, could this means of education also be doing something else to our children’s minds as well? Yes, the children learn things. Useful things of course like the alphabet and numbers, colors etc., but what else comes along with the learning?

Aren’t they also being conditioned to accept TV and in the larger picture, the media as valuable sources of education? Aren’t they being conditioned to accept what they are being offered by the media as valid and valuable?

Ok, it is worthwhile content, but as we know not All of what the media offers is worthwhile or truthful for that matter. We also know that TV induces a trance like state and is an excellent medium for conditioning one’s mind. (If you have ever try to get your children’s attention away from a program they are engaged in, you’ll know what I mean.) However, the belief that TV and the media is educational, valid and thereby truthful is being implanted in the facile mind of the child as they watch their favorite TV characters convey their educational (and conceptual) information.

A Little Further on Down the Road

Generations later politicians are paraded before us on the “tube”. When appear on the tube or in public, they are treated like rock stars. The audience bursts into applause and fawningly……..places their trust and control over their lives in them. (See Psalm 146:3-4 for another view of our modern day Princes.)

Meanwhile, these guys and gals are legislating away our freedoms and creating a modern day panopticon as we see in more full blossom in Britain these days.

So then, why are we applauding them? Why are we practically bowing in deference to them? They are, after all, public servants right? Aren’t they elected to serve us and not vice versa? Yet, we treat them like modern day Princes or, in the case of the President, perhaps a King or Dictator? Criticize the President and for the true believer, it is off with your head! How dare you!

Is There a Connection?

I suggest that there is a connection between the educational TV of our childhoods and the celebrity status of our politicians. The media after all encourages us to view them as our saviors. (Not Jesus of course. Who, after all, elected him?) We fawn over them on talk TV appearances as though they were our best friends only out to supply the answers and goods to meet our most important needs.

But really, let’s be honest here, are they?

They have run up our national debt to unprecedented levels. The latest debacle is the move to have the debt ceiling lifted to watch debt rise $339 Billion in one day! Is this really in our best interests?

Wars these days are constant companions and the military are applauded like the politicians. The unending war on terrorism drags on. (Just like Orwell’s 1984 Socialist Big Brother society where the wars never ended in fact.)  This, of course, serves as an unending source of new debt which feeds the Federal Reserve cartel. They, in turn, provide the funds to put our modern day Princes in office. One hand washes the other as the saying goes.

Yet, we ignore the realities surrounding us and like the proverbial frog in the pot are passively allowing the water to come to a boil, applauding our slave masters all the way.

An Inordinate Trust of the Media?

I suggest that it links back to good old Big Bird, Bert and Ernie and friends. If you watch Presidential elections with a sense of objectivity (That is, not subscribing to media generated labels like conservative/liberal, right wing/left wing or even Republican and Democrat.) you find yourself a bit amazed that the public can so readily lap up the images that the media carefully crafts about the candidates.

The media essentially label the so-called “front runners”. We accept their labels without protest.

They craft the image of a closet Marxist like Obama as “The Change We Need”. The public laps it up hook, line and sinker. Anyone daring to criticize or question his moves may be slapped with the “racist” label, a silly posture that some fools still accept as valid.

Maybe in place of accepting authority and particularly the media, we should first recognize it as the monopoly that it is. Note how it is run by massive Corporations. Educate ourselves and discern how it absolutely fails to convey the real truth?

I think Big Bird has engendered us all with a too generous sense of trust of the media and authority. One that is steadily locking us into a police state panopticon in which it will be acceptable to have Big Brother watching our every move.

Just a Suggestion

If you have children, take responsibility for their basic education. (In fact, with the indoctrination system of public education you may want to take that a step further than the basics. Home schooling perchance? A tough way to fly in today’s economy but your children’s minds may be worth the sacrifice.)

Get a few children’s books and teach them how to recognize the alphabet, colors, numbers etc. themselves. Don’t just plop them in front of the TV and allow them to be subject to the trance state acceptance of the media as your replacement and their bestus friend.

Control the input of what goes into their minds. Maybe they won’t know who Peppa the pig is or Big Bird or the Count. But hey, as the popular commercial once put it, the mind a terrible thing to waste.

 

 

 

How the New World Order is Being Built and Who is Profiting- A Brief Example

The family that plays together stays together as the saying goes. So it is with the Corporate and ultra rich elite who are building their New World Order (NWO) ostensibly for world peace but actually to make us all their wage slaves or slaves of the State under one global government.

One of the big players in building the NWO is the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) through their Corporate Member List and Membership Roster. You will find all of the “too big to fail” banks on the CFR Corporate list. You will also find significant key members of government (like our current Secretary of State and Chairwoman of the Federal Reserve for example)

Of course, the media is a player (like Rupert Murdoch and his company News Corp- both members) and many of the so-called experts used by the media to comment on important foreign policy issues, particularly those involving war related issues.

War is a Racket

War is a key tool in constructing the New World Order arsenal BTW. Listen to a reading of Smedley Butler’s short book War is a Racket on YouTube for a sense of why this is. I think you’ll connect the dots easily enough. Some people profit mightily and regularly these days from war. Gee, I wonder why that may be a reason it is so revered by our Corporate owned entertainment and sports venues?

Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Program

Anyway…recently I was breezing through cfr.org and looking at the Corporate list. I noted a new Corporate name that I had not seen before. The first company name on the Corporate list in fact- The Abraaj Group.  I have followed the CFR for a while now but never noticed this Corporate member before. And they were listed as a “Founder” as well which is the highest level of Corporate membership.

Alrighty then, since I never heard of them before and being the curious person that I am, I had to do a little digging to see “whaddup” as the phrase goes.

So…Just Who is The Abraaj Group?

First of all, they are a fairly new player on the scene. They have been around only since 2002. Kind of odd that a relative “newbie” would be on the CFR Founders list. Obviously, the term “Founders” is purchasable and not really a description of actual “Founders”. Guess they just paid more than many of the others making them a bigger “player” on the CFR scene.

They are a private equity (PE) firm which means that they raise money from Limited Partners (LPs) like pension and retirement funds, endowments, insurance companies, and wealthy individuals. Then, using their expertise and “due diligence” invest it for profit.

The end goal for PE firms is to exit their investments at a substantial profit. Typically, according to Bloomberg Business, with Abraaj the exit occurs between 3-5 years after the original investment. It could be shorter or longer depending on the market and favorable economic circumstances.

In short, they essentially take other peoples money (possibly their own as well since none of them appear to be destitute and they are listed as clients too.) and invest it for a profit both for themselves and the investors. I would also expect that there may be some other purposes as well for the investments, such as control and power of an area.

They Grew Pretty Fast Too!

The Abraaj Group has made 140 investments over the past 10 years in about 30 countries and currently has about $9 Billion worth of assets under management.  For a firm that has been around only a decade, that’s quite a growth curve

They concentrate most of their investments in Africa, Asia and South America.

Their top dog is Islamic as are 9 of their 14 partners. The remainder are mainly Indian, with a Latin American for the South American investments of course and a Brit Tom Speechly. I wasn’t able to determine if he was a member of Brit based Chatham House [The RIIA]. It wouldn’t surprise me if he was since Abraaj is a donor to Chatham House as well.

The reason I suspect Chatham House/RIIA is because it is a sister organization of the CFR. The WIKI article linked above notes that or read Shadows of Power by James Perloff, the definitive book on the history and purposes of the CFR. They were formed in Paris at the same time as the CFR. They concentrate on the same areas as does the CFR.

Their Strategic Partners (AKA clients)

According to the World Economic Forum (another NWO lover), the Abraaj Group has some interesting clients (AKA strategic partners).  They comprise 100 leading global companies. (Global being the operative give away word there in case ya missed it.) Bill and Melinda Gates are investors. You know, the pro-vaccine and anti-population growth dude- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjj4Iq-rsNg

Of course, there are a good number of CFR Corporate members on the list as well such as Barclays, Bank of America, Chevron, Credit Suisse and the list goes on. Obviously, one hand washes the other when it comes to investing in Africa, South America and Asia. (There is a growing “red” governmental model in all of these areas but that is another can of worms but worth noting for the tie ins. The New World Order prefers a State dominated authoritarian model like the Communist one. Much easier to control the populace under the systematic application of tyranny as in the Communist model.

These Facts Brings Some Questions To Mind

Why is such an obvious connection to the Middle East and Islam so highly placed on the CFR Corporate list? They are only 10 years old and yet are already “founders” members of the CFR, donors to Chatham House/RIIA as well. After all, the CFR often supplies the experts who are called upon to comment on the war on terrorism and always take an aggressive stance on fighting terrorism encouraging more U.S. involvement in the Middle East. Are these, as Smedley Butler implies, privateers pursuing profit on an opportunistic basis?

The CFR is encouraging war in the Middle East ostensibly to “keep us safe”. (Are we really any safer from “radical Islamist’s” from all of this “war on terror”? Might want to consult the Parisians on that topic these days.)

On the other hand, an organization that is pushing aggressive policies towards the war on terror has at the top of its Corporate list a bunch of rich Islamists who are investing private funds from their Corporate members a good number of whom are members of the CFR.

I mean, why bite the hand that feeds you right? Even if they are Islamic and well, without going into a great deal of detail in this article, part of the problem. At least, according to the neo-cons from the CFR who pushed the war on terror such as Cheney, Richard Perle, Wolfowitz and significant CFR others.

One could see this as a disconnect, but personally I just see it as part of the globalist agenda. Disrupt the countries, establish new leadership more favorable to the NWO plan (Kings and powerful singular figures are not. One person in control can say no more easily than a so-called “Democracy”. Note how singular leaders have either been eliminated or are being attacked. Think that is an accident?), then profit on the rebuilding of third world infrastructure, some of it the product of wars.

After All….

Hey, the ultra wealthy family that manipulates, crushes and destroys plays together afterwards to profit handily working cooperatively with the so-called “enemies”? Nothing like good old family values huh? That is, Corporations and profits far outweigh national loyalty and truth.

The rich continue to get richer and more controlling and Islamic Abraaj gets a nice piece of the pie from its CFR investor buds to boot. Pretty sweet huh? Forget the fact that Americans are infidels and your innocent civilian “Islamic brothers and sisters” caught in the crossfire are dying.

After all, in about 12 years, they went from “zero” to $9 Billion in assets under control or “hero” in the CFR realm of operation. That’s Billion with a “B” BTW (One million seconds is 12 days. One billion seconds is 31 years. And to give you an idea of just how large our $18.6 Trillion national debt actually is: one trillion seconds is 31,000 years! Multiply that by 18.6!! Hope it doesn’t take us that long to pay it all back.)

War really is a racket isn’t it? Good for replacing old orders with a New World Order ya know. Disrupt and disorganize and then “mould it nearer to the hearts desire.”

Fabian Socialist Window

Fabian Socialist Window “Mould It Nearer to the Heart’s Desire”

P.S.- Especially, if it’s got CFR stamped on it. Is it any wonder that they drum up one war after another?

The Foolish Right and Left Wing Paradigms – Deception Through the Media

A recent post on a Survivor oriented blog reminded me of how thoroughly people have been misled by the media. After an article entitled Hacking the News, which depicted the press as being sold-out to liberalism, a reader posted the following response:

“This writer is delusional in his assessment of “liberal” news reporting and the attitudes of the people who get news from so-called “liberal” news outlets.

The truth is that such alarmist headlines and “tweets” are the norm for CONSERVATIVE news outlets, such as Alex Jones and “Before it’s the News.”

If people are misinformed it is much more likely to be from a “Right Wing Conservative” news source, such as FOX.”

To me, this is yet another example of how deceived the public is by mainstream media into accepting labels and neat little boxes for their realities while missing the overall.

All the Same Team

The so-called “right wing” news station of Fox is on the same team as the rest of the media. Fox is part of the News Corp conglomerate owned by Rupert Murdoch, who is a long-time member of the globalist oriented, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The CFR is a bankster created organization that pushes globalism and a one world government goal which has all of the “tooShadows_of_Power
big to fail” banks and David C. Rockefeller as its Honorary Chairman. (For more on them read Shadows of Power by James Perloff).

This so-called “right wing” is simply controlled opposition that exists to present a counterpoint to the main narrative in the media. It’s overall intent is to move the people towards the intentional goal of one world government. You will note that on both sides of the message, war as a solution remains intact.

The War Agenda is Rarely Questioned By the Mainstream

The Fox neo-cons push war because war aids in generating debt which is important for the international banking cartel represented by the Federal Reserve (see Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin) and also aids the wealthy elite who control banking and our media to gain both economic and political control over nations. Debt enslaves one to whom the debt is owed. That includes nations, not just individuals.

Left-Right? What is the Real Difference?

Fact is, the left pushes the same message. How much change in war oriented activities has there been since Obama took office? Try none! In fact, we have been involved in more wars than even under Bush with the continuation of Iraq to this day (while lessened under the same time frame as Bush proposed) and escalated in Afghanistan as well as involvement in Arab Spring revolutions, Libya and others.

There is no real difference between the so-called left and rights, liberal-conservative etc. There is rather a false emphasis of difference to produce the illusion of right and left or difference.

The Real End Game

In the end, we continue to be led towards their overall paradigm of one world government. People who buy into one “side” or the other of the false left-right, Democrat-Republican, right wing-left wing models are simply a pack of suckers falling prey to their propaganda machines controlled by fiat currency issued by a now global central banking scheme.

The global war on terrorism continues and banks hold the debt and control that results.

The Will Rogers Solution

Will Rogers

Will Rogers- 1879 to 1935

One way of ending this game was proposed, tongue in cheek, by the great American humorist of the 20’s and 30’s Will Rogers. Will said:

“I have a scheme for stopping war. It’s this- no nation is allowed to enter a war until they have paid for the last one.”

The Debt Solution

You can guarantee Will’s solution would never see the light of day. Debt is how they control and enslave nations and their people.

Politicians cannot get elected without it. Wars cannot be conducted without it. Corporations cannot operate without it, especially the largest ones. People as a whole are mired in it including the mortgage on that house you think is yours, unless you fail to pay it, that is. Guess who owns your house then.

Debt is promoted over savings continuously. In the end, it is the holder of the debt that controls the one who owes the debt.

War is one of the most effective ways to promote national debt. The holder of the debt is the nation. The one to whom it is owed is the international banking cartels which operate under the paradigm of central banks. (See The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin for details)

People are in fact simply misinformed by all of the media and it is by no means an accident. It is simply easier to accept what you are fed without questioning it. In the end, we all end up under the thumbs of the international financiers and their minions.

Media Spin Means Control

The articles below demonstrate some of the deception and how effectively people are controlled by the media. Instead of questioning the media, most people simply accept its spin and comment on it as though it is the word of God. It is deception at its finest. Few understand or acknowledge that even those who think they are so well-informed. It’s deception by omission rolling happily along and few ever notice, until it will be too late that is.

Congress Funds Government with More Funny Money- Pt 2

As noted and not really fleshed out by the media or ballyhooed, Congress was supplied with more “funny money” (fiat money from the Federal Reserve created out of nothing) from the Federal Reserve to the tune of $1.1 Trillion.

Very few paid attention to this move and simply passed it off as what should happen to keep our government humming along and our country smoothly operating. Few see the more insidious red flags that this move points to and fewer still understand the system and what it actually is doing here.

Our Built In Normalcy Bias

The fact is this is more major than the public cares to acknowledge, understand and prepare for. Practically all of us have a built in normalcy bias carefully cultivated by our educational systems and the media. So just what is a “normalcy bias”? Definition.net gives a good overview of this term I believe:

In short, a normalcy bias, refers to a mental state people enter when facing a disaster. It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects.

The assumption that is made in the case of the normalcy bias is that since a disaster never has occurred then it never will occur. It also results in the inability of people to cope with a disaster once it occurs.

People with a normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation.

The key in the above definition is the assumption that because a disaster has never occurred during their lifetimes, it will never occur. The reality is that our current prosperity is an illusion produced by a system of modern money mechanics and inevitably destined to fail.

The Signs of Collapse Are Gathering

My son said to me recently.” Yeah Dad, you’ve been talking about this stuff [currency collapse] since I was a kid.” And yes, that is true. I have been following this issue of our money supply for over a decade now. Frankly, I am surprised that we haven’t progressed faster towards collapse than we have. After all, the Federal Reserve has been manipulating our economy for over a century now.

But there are signs that the storm is gathering clouds quickly now.

Pay attention for example to the prices of food and goods in our society. Prices are rising and rising more steadily these days. Meals that cost $4 in local Chinese restaurants less than a decade ago are now up above $8 and higher. A doubling in under a decade. Other doublings have occurred in many other foods.

I recently traveled on the turnpike and noticed that tolls which had just been bumped up significantly less than a year ago were going up again. The notice was posted for another increase on January 1st. Gas costs are going down. Why the increase I wondered?

I asked the toll taker what the increase was going to be. After he claimed ignorance, I researched it a bit myself and discovered that it was going to be 25% more! That amounts to a doubling of tolls in under 7 years.

Inflation is a Hidden Tax and Sign of Declining Currency

When more dollars are pumped into the economy and production of goods and services does not produce those dollars, the value of the currency declines. As noted in Modern Money Mechanics put out by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in the first post on this topic, control of the money supply is essential to keep the value stable.

Our government just increased the money supply with no subsequent increase in goods and services to the tune of $1.1 Trillion. The value of our money will decline further because the same amount of goods and services are in the economy but now there are more dollars chasing them. It will take time to filter through the economy but our purchasing power from money earned has been further compromised.

This means you will work for the same amount of money but it will buy less. This is what G. Edward Griffin refers to as a hidden tax. The value of your earnings has been removed with nary a whimper or protest. The government won’t feel it with the new money but by the time it reaches us, it will be expanded further through our fractional reserve banking system and worth even less, far less.

Watch this video on YouTube for some education on our debt based money set up and where it is heading.

So, I would also suggest reading or listening to The Creature from Jekyll Island by Edward G. Griffin for a more complete view of the Federal Reserve and solution. The most current version is recommended as it contains important updates.

The Economy is Running on Empty

What the latest move by our government tells us is that our political and economic system is running out of options. Taxes are reaching breaking points so borrowing has been growing as an option for our politicians. With the amount of debt our government has however, even that option is getting risky.

You see, our economy is no longer a production based economy. Our capacities to produce goods have been transferred overseas. We are a credit based economy rather than a export based economy. Our production of goods capacities have been reduced to a shell of what they were during the 50’s and early 60’s by transferring our manufacturing out of the country. (A quick search on our retail shelves for American made goods will clearly validate that last statement.) Consequently, we cannot produce goods to sell to other nations to take in money.

Now, every round of borrowing is driving the value of our currency further down in value. This means that in order to equal what was required previously even more money has to be borrowed since the money is now worth less because of what was previously pumped into the economy without a rise in tangible goods or even services. This has created more dollars but not more goods. This makes the tangible goods and services which come from people’s labor that much more valuable than the money which came from nothing.

A Diamond Analogy

You can think of it this way. Diamonds are valuable not only because they are pretty but also because they are rare. Suppose a beach were discovered that was made up of diamonds rather than sand. What do you suppose would happen to the value of diamonds? Of course, since there are now more diamonds and no more increase in buyers, the diamonds would go down in value.

The same thing happens to our money when there is an increase in money supply but not in the goods and services that money purchases. Money is now less rare or scarce than the goods or services produced by actual labor. So the goods in relation to the money are more scarce. Therefore their prices rise to make up for the cheap money.

This is what we are watching now. Rising prices.

At some point a critical mass is reached. When this happens inflation reaches a hyper inflationary stage. The value of the currency drops markedly and quickly. Money becomes far less valuable and it takes significantly more money to purchase the same goods. Zimbabwe and Chile are modern day examples of this phenomena. The Wiemar Republic is a common example which was the state of Germany after WWI.

One Last Thing…

On top of the decrease in manufacturing and increased borrowing and debt there is another insidious little action that is continuing- War. War is one of the best ways to fuel inflation. War is first of all, expensive. It produces massive and continuous debt.

Secondly, the goods produced get destroyed. Instead of generating new goods or services that could generate more production, they end up being eliminated. As they are eliminated, what is left behind is more debt and no means to pay for it with the sale of more goods. There is simply more demand for more goods that are destined to get destroyed leaving behind even more debt.

Can you detect the vicious cycle war creates? I hope so because if you do a little investigation of history you will note that over time the most common accompanying reason for the collapse of an empire was war and the debt it created that came along with it.

It doesn’t bode well for the direction of our nation. Empire ultimately results in collapse. It always has and it always will. For as Jesus said to Peter when he cut the servants ear off in Matthew 26:52 “Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.”

So, while our Corporate controlled media who are controlled by their money masters that keep them supplied with loans and cash flow use its mouthpieces to continuously endorse the value of war, our economy is further eroded by the subsequent produced.

What Can Be Done?

First of all, education on how our system is leading us in the wrong direction is essential. Then, keeping in mind this wrong direction take some precautions to protect yourself.

If paper money collapses, all assets based on it will collapse as well. Investments based on inflation will become worthless. Think: paper money and paper assets like stocks or paper based assets. That is where tangible assets will become valuable including universally accepted exchangeable assets like gold and silver. (Silver may be even more valuable because of its useful commercial values.)

If inflation strikes hard, necessities like food will skyrocket in price. You may want to take some steps to prepare for that real possibility by storing some basics with long term intent in mind. Since that is a whole other can of worms I will not cover much on that here but will recommend a few resources below to get you started.

At any rate, the worst thing you can do is nothing. As the saying goes, the dumbest thing to do is to continue to sit in the middle of the tracks with an onrushing train bearing down on you. The handwriting is on the wall as King Belshazzar in Daniel Chapter 5 discovered to his dismay predicting downfall. We don’t need a prophet to interpret it. Simply logic and a little patient study of history and honest money.

How the Federal Government Contributes to Diabetes and Obesity

Most people want to believe that their government is there to protect them from harm. Throw in the conditioning to trust authority which begins and continues throughout the State sponsored “free” education system and trust in the government is a conditioned a response for a good many of us.

Isn’t Our Health Our Responsibility?

So, how can I make a statement like the title above? How could the government possibly contribute to creating a disease as terrible as diabetes and an epidemic level of obesity? I mean, isn’t that the responsibility of each individual? Aren’t we primarily responsible for our own level of health?

Well, ultimately the answer to that question would be yes. On the other hand. are we really actually encouraged to take responsibility for our health or is there an emphasis on using the health care system instead of our own individual selections?

Well, I think Obamacare pretty much answers that question. After all, the Federal government now has made it illegal to not participate in the chemically driven, surgically oriented modern medical system.

A system that encourages dependence on “experts” not ourselves. A system that dispenses expensive chemicals as an answer from a simple headache or common cold to Cancer, Heart Disease or Diabetes. A system that is very costly and has morphed into the most costly system ever in the history of the planet while failing to provide effective solutions to deadly diseases like the three mentioned above.

Enter the Dragon

King Corn

Vimeo Version Below is 10 Minutes Short But Captures Most Important Info

So why all this involvement in our health care system from the Federal government? Is it really in the interests of the public or in the interests of vested interests? Could the medical monopoly that Obamacare promotes be tied in with the medical monopoly of Big Pharma and major insurance firms? I think most of us can see this connection without too much forethought. However, could there also be another more insidious factor operating here? One hidden behind the scenes and never brought to light? A dragon like Smaug of The Hobbit, hidden in a lair protecting his treasure? A dragon named King Corn?

King Corn

King Corn is the name of a documentary made a few years ago by two recent college graduates who wanted to find out about how we eat. They started out with a hair analysis and were told that most of their body was made from corn. Corn? What the…? The remainder of the film follows the two college buddies, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, as they set out to learn more about corn—how it’s grown, and how it ends up in so many of our foods.

They do so by moving from Boston to Iowa and making arrangements to grow an acre of corn they rent from a local farmer. (Turns out they both had relatives from 3 generations back that were from the same town in Iowa they used in the film. Something neither had known when they became friends.) The film traces each step of corn growth and fills in the blanks along the way.

What King Corn Tells Us

First of all, we learn that without government subsidies corn farmers would lose money. Ian and Curt find this out in the end when their $28 subsidy takes them from loss to profit. They also discover other subsidies they never even knew about as well. In fact, Ian and Curt tell us:

  • Over the past 15 years, taxpayers have paid corn farmers more than $77 billion in subsidies
  • More than 75 percent of farm subsidies are paid to a mere 10 percent of America’s farmers
  • Since the late 1970s, the real price of fruits and vegetables have risen by 30 percent, while the price for soda has decreased by 34 percent

Now, why has soda gone down while fruits and vegetables have risen? The answer- HFCS or high fructose corn syrup from the gigantic excesses of corn made possible by government subsidy as noted in the film. So, what impact has this had on our society. A report from the Journal of Clinical Nutrition entitled “Fructose, weight gain, and the insulin resistance syndrome” concludes:

In terms of feedback to the CNS regarding energy status in peripheral tissues, fructose consumption results in decreased production and, therefore, decreased signaling to the CNS from 2 hormones (leptin and insulin) involved in the long-term regulation of energy homeostasis and body adiposity. The same observation applies to dietary fat. Thus, the long-term consumption of diets high in fat and fructose is likely to lead to increased energy intake, weight gain, and obesity. The potential for weight gain from increased fructose consumption may only represent one aspect of its metabolic consequences.

While the potential for weight gain is one aspect, the film covers another.

A Brooklyn cab driver was interviewed who said he lost a third of his over 300 lbs. just by stopping the consumption of HFCS sweetened soda! The Hispanic driver goes on to relate a list of relatives in his family lost to diabetes, including his father.

A subsequent interview at a local clinic in Brooklyn reveals that low cost, fast food among the community (much of it made possible by subsidized cheap corn) is a big contributor to the diabetes epidemic particularly in low income communities.

Apples to Twinkies

According to a report by the U.S. Public Information Research Group (U.S. PIRG) entitled Apples to Twinkies:

At a time when America faces high obesity rates and tough federal budget choices, taxpayer dollars are funding the production of junk food ingredients. Since 1995, the government has spent $292.5 billion on agricultural subsidies, $19.2 billion of which have subsidized corn- and soy-derived junk food ingredients.

And what are the impacts of these government subsidies?

  • In 2013, taxpayers spent $84.4 billion on corn production, $8.1 billion of which funded production of corn starch and sweeteners.
  • The subsidies are directed towards the very largest commercial farms with 62% of the farmers receiving no subsidy at all.
  • Over 31 percent of the adolescent population is now overweight or obese with estimates of obesity-related medical costs reaching $150 billion per year.

According to the Center for Disease Control, one of the primary recommendations in conditions of pre-diabetes is to lose weight.

Another Unacknowledged Impact

Our Federal subsidies while lowering our cost of corn has virtually destroyed the Mexican corn market. An article written by the Acton Institute notes:

The 2003 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) deregulated all agricultural trade, except for corn and dairy products. The Mexican government complains that since NAFTA’s initial implementation in 1994, the United States has raised farm subsidies by 300 percent. As a result, Mexican corn farmers, who comprise the majority of the country’s agricultural sector, experienced drastic declines in the domestic price of their product. It should come as no surprise, then, that the United States began to experience an influx of Mexicans looking for employment in the latter half of the 1990s.

Of course, there are other factors influencing immigration but corn farming which once was important in Mexico is now a shell of what it once was. Once known for their wide variety of corn as noted by the film corn varieties have been reduced markedly to primarily yellow dent high in starch and low in protein.

But Wait There’s More

Additionally, the corn used in production from government subsidy is almost entirely the GMO variety engineered to accept toxic pesticides. Pesticides which end up in our food chain and our bodies. Now, they are discovering that this GMO corn while resistant to pesticides is not strong enough to resist pests.

Corn grown on soil that is artificially fertilized also lacks the minerals found in organic soils. If the minerals are not in the soil, they will not be in the plant and ultimately our bodies. Minerals that are important catalysts for metabolic actions and important to our long term health.

Government Collusion

So, is government a contributor to our epidemic of obesity, diabetes and poor health as noted in my title? Personally, I think the facts speak for themselves.

The collusion of government and Corporate interests is clear. Subsidies go primarily to Agribusiness, the largest Corporate owned farms. Corn is grown from taxpayer money for profit not health. The end result is an excess of cheap corn that makes profitable but damaging sweeteners that are heavily marketed to the population with slick commercials with the only motive being profit.

Is Cheap Corn Really Cheap?

Of course, ignored in all of this is the fact that the corn is not nearly as cheap as the market price reflects. It is only cheap because the government subsidizes it which we all pay for through increased taxation and the insidiously hidden tax of inflation caused by the growth of government debt from the increased money supply of money from nothing.

So while the corn is cheap, the money used to subsidize it (over a quarter of a Trillion $ in the last 2 decades for all agricultural subsidies) has inflated the dollar by lowering its purchasing power.

Additionally, the health of the American public suffers as obesity, diabetes and other diseases rise. Not to worry. Now, we have all been forced into a system of expensive health care pushing the products of a minority of pharmaceutical firms with steadily rising costs.

Cheap corn, not what it is cracked up to be? I think so.

Oh, and one last thing. Are government subsidies for private businesses Constitutional? I think not.

 

Congress Funds Government with More Funny Money- Banks Get Free Bailout Pass in Return

If you don’t get it by now, this should help solidify who is really running the show in our nation. While Congress passed a $1.1 Trillion spending bill to keep itself running Congress included a provision that does nothing more than give a free pass to further bail-outs of the “too big to fails” in a case of one hand washes the other.

Money from Nothing Doesn’t Come Free

The Federal Reserve fiat funny money that is generated from nowhere doesn’t come free. Citibank and the other “too big to fails”, which are among the Primary Dealers that handle the T-bills and bond transactions that create the money from nothing that the Federal Reserve generates, have now legally been given a free pass to speculate on the taxpayer’s dime.

If their speculations fail, the taxpayer is now liable to pay for their losses. In other words, if they gamble and lose, we pay for their losses. The banks win. We the people, lose.

Only a Few Senators Openly Opposed the Move

The provision, written by Citibank according to Elizabeth Warren, was opposed by only a few in the Senate. Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Republican Sen. David Vitter voiced opposition to the provision tacked on to the spending bill. Sen. David Vitter, R-La., joined Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on an amendment to remove the provision from the government funding bill, they say allows taxpayer bailouts to financial institutions that engage in risky derivative trading. It didn’t matter. The supposedly “conservative” Republicans joined hands in ignoring it and passing the spending bill with it attached anyway.

Warren and Vitter both agreed it was wrong for Congress to add a last-minute provision to a spending bill allowing derivative trading to be included in transactions covered by government insurance programs.

“Ever since the new financial regulations went into place, Wall Street has been working behind the scenes to open another loophole so they could gamble with taxpayer money and get bailed out when their risky bets threaten to blow up our financial system,” Warren said. “Congress should not put taxpayers on the hook for another bailout, and this giveaway that was drafted by Citigroup lobbyists has no place in a critical government funding bill.”

Added Vitter:

“Before Congress starts handing out Christmas presents to the megabanks and Wall Street — we should vote on this bipartisan amendment. We need to remove these risky derivatives that aren’t even necessary for normal banking purposes and would only make future taxpayer funded bailouts more likely.”

So, How Do the Banks Feel About the Move?

The American Banking Association argued that stripping Section 716 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that prohibits federal insurance to financial institutions that engage in certain derivatives activities is the right move.

“The majority of banks, including community banks, that use swaps do so in order to hedge or mitigate risk from their ordinary business activities, including lending.   Hedging and mitigating risk are not only good business practices, but are important tools that banks use to help borrowing customers hedge their own business risks,” said ABA Executive Vice President James Ballentine. “The push-out requirement to move some swaps into separate affiliates makes one-stop shopping impossible for businesses ranging from family farms to energy companies that want to hedge against commodity price changes.”

Why of course, they would feel that way. Heck, who wouldn’t like to go to Atlantic City or Las Vegas on the provision that if they win, they get to keep it, but if they lose someone else foots the bill for their losses.

Is Elizabeth Warren for Real?

I don’t know whether Elizabeth Warren is for real or not. She could be what the Communists use to pass through draconian legislation and gets its system implanted which is to say “controlled opposition”.

In other words, they plant or allow someone to oppose their moves while achieving compromise designed to further the Communist system. It makes the end result more palatable to the citizens who are being enslaved under State tyranny that way. Perhaps Warren is serving that role. We don’t really know.

However, her statements ring true for the majority of us who end up holding the bill here:

“Who does Congress work for?” Warren said in a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday afternoon. “Does it work for the millionaires, the billionaires, the giant companies with their armies of lobbyists and lawyers, or does it work for all the people?” […]“Now, the House of Representatives is about to show us the worst of government for the rich and powerful,” she continued. “The House is about to vote on a budget deal, a deal negotiated behind closed doors that slips in a provision that would let derivatives traders on Wall Street gamble with taxpayer money and get bailed out by the government when their risky bets threaten to blow up our financial system.”

Really now though Elizabeth, the handwriting is already on the wall. We are moving ever closer to a Statist government that takes care of their chosen elite and makes “We the People” work for them. But hey, I appreciate your sentiments anyway, even if they are quite obvious by now to anyone with half a brain and paying attention.

So How Does Obama Feel About It?

Well, the man that interrupted his campaign to lobby in front of the House as a Senator in 2008, to pass the bank bailout bill said that if he could write the bill, “I suspect it’d be slightly different.”

President Barack Obama urged senators to approve the spending bill, even though it has provisions he doesn’t like:

“That is not the circumstance we find ourselves in, and I think what the American people very much are looking for is some practical governance and the willingness to compromise.”

Practical Governance? Passing a spending bill that has more dollars in it than there are galaxies in the universe is practical?

Willingness to compromise? You call passing the buck to the public a compromise?

Hey, what do you expect. This is the guy, after all, who gave us “Change We Need” and “Change We Can Believe In”.

Is anyone still a sucker enough to continue believing today? Astoundingly, yes!

End Result

Congress and our government has just acknowledged who their true master is and it ain’t the electorate. It should be clear now who is actually running the show- the Federal Reserve!

They control Congress because they hold the purse strings. Without their funny money, Congress would be out of work today. But they aren’t. Their jobs are secure, for now. I knew they would be.

As for us, we just got handed more inflation which means our spending power will be further watered down. The money we work for will buy less because prices will rise to accommodate more money in circulation without an increase in production of real wealth.

How It Works- According to the Fed Itself

Modern Money Mechanics a publication issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago puts it this way:

In the United States neither paper currency nor deposits have value as commodities. Intrinsically, a dollar bill is just a piece of paper, deposits merely book entries. Coins do have some intrinsic value as metal, but generally far less than their face value. What, then, makes these instruments – checks, paper money, and coins – acceptable at face value in payment of all debts and for other monetary uses? Mainly, it is the confidence people have that they will be able to exchange such money for other financial assets and for real goods and services whenever they choose to do so. Money, like anything else, derives its value from its scarcity in relation to its usefulness.

Control of the quantity of money is essential if its value is to be kept stable. Money’s real value can be measured only in terms of what it will buy. Therefore, its value varies inversely with the general level of prices. Assuming a constant rate of use, if the volume of money grows more rapidly than the rate at which the output of real goods and services increases, prices will rise. This will happen because there will be more money than there will be goods and services to spend it on at prevailing prices.

This is straight from the horse’s mouth- the Federal Reserve itself. If you aren’t getting this yet, I suggest you bone up with some of the recommended reading below. You need to wake up and smell the money so you can prepare accordingly. As Tiny Tim said in the Alistair Sim movie at the end- “And God Bless Us All.”

Sandy Hook – Two Years After and a Banned YouTube Video

Alex Jones- InfoWars site had a report on a new documentary about Sandy Hook that was banned from YouTube by requests.  Scroll down to Internet Censors Viral Sandy Hook Truth Documentary ) for the report.

Having posted on this topic after the event, questioning its veracity, a claim of a banned video on the topic got my attention. So, I checked it out.

It’s long (almost 3 hours). It delayed during the stream periodically which was annoying. However, it really covered the information effectively and backed it up with facts and references. You can view it here for free: We Need to Talk About Sandy Hook.

Topics Covered

Sandy_Hook_Collage

 Interestingly, they didn’t even cover some of the more obvious stuff like the Coroner interview, multiple shooter hypothesis, crisis actor father Robbie, etc. Guess that’s because it has already been covered in depth on YouTube. In fact, I posted on some of this stuff closer to the event over a year ago myself.

However, some of the stuff is so phony that it is downright amusing like the people/parents at the firehouse who are literally leaving the scene, making a right and then re-entering to mill about again (essentially walking in circles).

DNA anomalies have now surfaced which do not demonstrate Adam Lanza on the guns and ammo but rather people supposedly shot at the scene.

Many actors were found throughout the testimonies and their behavior does not demonstrate a crisis mode or tragic event response.

Why no children in the video that supposedly showed the children being evacuated?

Why were 6 ambulances parked at the fire house with their fronts facing away from the school and the access road to the school completely blocked by vehicles?

Evidence on Adam Lanza never demonstrated attendance at Sandy Hook, although CNN and other mainstream media indicated otherwise.

Adam Lanza’s barber? What barber?

Adam Lanza’s brother Ryan was the first accused. What happened to that guy anyway?

How about Daddy Lanza? Why no public interviews with him?

Visual anomalies that do not indicate crisis mode or anything even close and much more

Did Gene Rosen Really Deserve a Song?

Particularly moving was the piece on Gene Rosen, the retired pet sitter, who reputedly found 6 children from Sandy Hook sitting in shock at his home (Or was it 4?). Rosen was built into a kind of folk hero by the media. However, we find out that his account of this event changed 4 times and that he was also an actor.

Turns out the guy was seen in videos of the crowd at the school when he was supposed to be at his home tending to the forlorn children. He was also a known actor and  the most embarrassing disclosure is a video of him posted where he appears to be practicing his lines and was corrected by the camera man.

The Gene Rosen Song- Excerpted Lyrics

“You need way more room because you’re heart’s too big for your house.

Gene Rosen…….Gene Rosen

Roses bloom and Elm Trees sway for what you did that fateful day.”

Sorry, but this is simply farcical. Is this singer for real or is this actually a tongue in cheek parody? After seeing the evidence about Gene you may feel differently about this little ditty.

What Was Sandy Hook Really About?

To me, Sandy Hook, looks like another false flag, engineered event that was used to generate support for more gun control legislation and ultimately more control over the public. It appears to be a drill that was trumped up into an actual event. Of course, the mention of this will bring on abuse from the true believers. After all, one of the purposes of any conspiracy is to convince you that conspiracy does not, in fact, exist.

 Summary

The film was long (Delayed its streaming for me when I viewed it. It may not do the same for you. Don’t know. But I soldiered through it because it was NOT the same old stuff on the topic.), but very revealing. It raises issues that have not been effectively addressed in the past and puts them in one convenient location- this documentary. I found quite interesting overall and would recommend you view it and make up your own mind.

What is Really Behind the Ferguson Mass Demonstrations?

As usual the Ferguson shooting is being spun by the mass media as yet another case of police brutality resulting in the death of an innocent black victim.

Perhaps it was but then again perhaps it wasn’t.

After digging into the facts a bit more deeply, one finds some conflicting reports that are not being circulated as aggressively as the innocent victim posture promoted by Brown’s relatives and others as reported in mainstream media.

Personally, I mistrust the Corporate controlled media and do not rely on them for unbiased reporting or usually anything close to the actual truth. There is nearly always a significantly different reality to a news event than is ever revealed to the public.

The New York Post came right out and titled their article, CNN is Lying When They Say Ferguson Protests Were ‘Peaceful‘:

“On Tuesday night, CNN correspondent Jason Carroll was reporting, “Most of the protesting we saw in front of the Ferguson Police Department tonight was peaceful.” Then as he started trying to explain the fires burning behind him, he was approached by three of the protesters, who proceeded to get in his face and yell at him because he was promoting a “certain narrative” — the police narrative. “You don’t understand!” one screamed.”

Van Jones, the committed Communist who was forced out of office by his own admission, now CNN correspondent attempted to explain away the arsonists, looters, and protesters breaking windows with baseball bats as a ‘few knuckleheads’.

“Peaceful” Car Burnings During Ferguson Protests

There was a debate among the CNN correspondents on whether they should have aired video of Michael Brown’s stepfather standing on top of a car yelling, “Burn this bitch down,” right after the verdict was released.

Not All May Be As It Seems

In contrast, as reported by an article from a conservative source Brown himself was not the innocent victim CNN has promoted:

“Michael Brown, entered a convenience store, after taking a few hits from his favorite blend of herb, and perpetrated a strong arm robbery.

The 6’4”and nearly 300 pound Brown shoved and menaced a diminutive store owner to complete his crime and effect his escape with his stolen goods. A short time later, Brown encountered officer Wilson. Brown attacked officer Wilson, fracturing his orbital socket and causing other injuries. During this battery, Brown attempted to take officer Wilson’s firearm.

Just before officer Wilson was beaten to the point of unconsciousness, he fired at Brown, fatally wounding him. Additionally, autopsy reports do not support the claim that Brown was in a position of surrender, with his arms raised, when he was shot. We also know, through Grand Jury leaks, that there are several black witnesses who support officer Wilson’s version of the incident.”

More Here Than Meets the Media Generated Story?

As pointed out this week by Art Thompson of the Birch Society in his weekly talk, there is more than meets the eye when events of this nature become organized and especially international. Is there something highly leftist now involved? Marxist oriented even? Listen below for a viewpoint you will never get from the mass media:

As noted in the above report by Art Thompson, CEO of the John Birch Society (highly maligned and expectedly misrepresented by the mainstream media and leftists), bullhorns are being used. Let’s face it, people don’t just have bull horns laying around unused by accident. They are purchased when needed for a particular public purpose.

Additionally, Mr. Thompson noted that the signs being carried were pre-printed and labeled by the Socialist Workers organization. I decided to do a little digging on these statements to see for myself.

A Little Digging Was All It Took

Mr. Thompson mentioned an article by the Huffington Post which mentions a map which allows you to see where events on the Ferguson protest are for your area. It didn’t take very long to turn that article up. One quick search turned up this link to the Huffington Post map Art referred to in his presentation.

On the map at the link above, you are able to zoom into your location, select the dot and then click on the link in the box that comes up.

The events are being coordinated under The Ferguson National Response Network which you can find on tumblr. Additional events can be added with a Google form permitting you to supply the details.

I chose to zoom in on the Jersey City event. I quickly discovered that it is/was being sponsored by NJCU Black Freedom Society. Their selected logo was the ever present raised fist salute of the Communist Workers Party. A bit of a “tell” one might conclude.

The reality of Art Thompson’s presentation is quite clear. All of these sorts of events are highly organized and purposeful.

They all rally around a common theme usually focused on emotionally held beliefs such as people’s personal rights and freedoms. Racial overtones are particularly loaded it seems. However, behind the rhetoric lies a deceptive intent.

That intent is revealed if you look closely at who is leading the charge. The raised fist salute reveals the overall goal which, to put it succinctly, is to promote the transformation of American society into a Marxist oriented style of State dominated tyranny. A mouthful to be sure, but it speaks volumes and is more accurate than our “authorities” and media would have you believe.

Do You Remember the Occupy Wall Street Live Ins?

Living in the Philadelphia area and working in Center City I was around when the Occupy Wall Street events were taking place. There was a group of them settled in around City Hall in center city Philadelphia.

Passing closely by on my way to the commuter rail, I walked up to their “settlement” one evening on my way home from work and browsed about. A mini rally speech was being conducted with someone speaking forcefully. There were tables with books about Karl Marx and Communism. Of course, the labor unions also had tables as did government agencies offering welfare type services.

One evening I happened by an open walk down area, just below the ground level settlements, where meetings were held. I pass it on my way to the public transit system. I spotted a small group gathered sitting in a semi-circle listening to someone speak. No one stopped me, so curiously I walked up and listened in while a young man (mid to late 20’s I would guess) as it turned out was conducting a session on how to respond to the police during demonstrations.

He carefully instructed participants to place the woman up front. He directed them to not respond aggressively if the police became violent etc. He had a carefully printed poster to emphasize his speaking points. His fellow participants quietly listened. It was after all, learning workshop time.

Where is This All Headed?

Mr. Thompson in his presentation above is right on target (Over 50 years of following a directed movement does allow you to quickly get to the heart of the matter after all as The John Birch Society has done).

When you begin to see highly coordinated, large scale responses (such as the Arab Spring revolutions for example) these days you are almost certainly to find the finger of Marxist oriented organizations in the pie. The Corporate controlled media (tied to the banksters BTW) fully cooperates as well by focusing only on that which communicates the covert intended message. A message which is designed to incite the population to demand more control through the State to create peace and establish order. (Their intent however is a New World Order which is quite different from an order of personal freedom and peace.)

The UN Response

Naturally, the United Nations condemns police brutality citing Ferguson among others as a reference. And what is their solution? Why a National police force, of course. Not a local one but a centralized form just like they had in Nazi Germany and have today in Communist Russia (Yes, still Communist. That democracy ruse didn’t fool you did it?) and Communist China. (Hammer’s and Sickle flags are still found at both Chinese and Russian political events.)

Is this surprising? Not hardly. The UN was created by the banksters in 1945 for the purposes of building a new world order. Of course, the public is only fed the world peace mission but do a little digging and you will soon find much more than that wrapped into the UN banner.

It is all being carefully crafted to promote fear. Fear is particularly useful to help promote more State authority as opposed to more freedom.

Events like Ferguson are designed promote a demand in the masses for a State response to recover our rights or to protect the people. However, the real result is an inexorable movement towards more State dominated control. More State control always produces less freedom for the individual. Just as importantly more State control also means more kinship with the Marxist model of State dominated tyranny.

If I Only Had a…….

This is the end game for the “owners” as George Carlin used to refer to them. It reminds me of that scene in the Wizard of Oz when Toto pulls back the curtain to reveal the Wizard pulling levers and generating the smoke and mirrors, dog and pony show. Hey, “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.” Keep on listening and no thinking permitted.

Or perhaps it is a calling to that scene in the first Matrix film with the train headed towards a Neo trapped by Mr. Smith, the agent, “Hear that sound Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of your destiny.” Are you listening yet? It is already headed for you as well and you know what happens if you just sit in the middle of train tracks when a train is bearing down on you don’t you? Think it might be time to move perchance?

Please do. Thank you.

Obama Ignoring the Constitution to Promote Migration Over Immigration

I heard a media “expert” on CNN state that there was nothing unconstitutional about Obama’s latest executive order on illegal immigration (referring to this Marxist as a “Constitutional scholar” to boot). Read the part of the Constitution that refers to the executive branch (Article II, Section 2). There is absolutely nothing in there that gives the President the authority to create legislation. Nada, zilch, zip!

The Purpose of Executive Orders

Executive orders apply to the executive branch only. Not the nation. As is made clear in the Constitution, Article 1, Section 1, all legislative powers reside with congress. At most the President has the authority to enforce federal legislation, NOT create it. In actuality, executive orders only apply to the policies and procedures that are necessary for the administration of the duties and responsibilities that have been assigned to him by the Constitution. They are not mentioned in the Constitution because they are not part of the executive branch’s authority.

The Presidential oath after all swears this elected representative to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution not rewrite it! Watch this video of how Obama responded at a 2011 Town Hall to the question of granting temporary protective status to students:

Obama directly admits that he does not have the Constitutional authority to bypass congress. Or this brief clip when he was running as Senator Obama in 2008

I taught constitutional law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America. (Townhall in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, March 31, 2008)

Straight from the horses mouth. Campaign promises……not worth the mouth that speaks them and yet we fall for the rhetoric time and time again, a sad commentary on the intellect of the electorate unfortunately. The mind, a terrible thing to waste.

Our Elected Representatives Roles

If we had legislators with backbones, they would ignore this executive order totally and laugh at his displays or drum the man out of office. The operative words here are “if and “backbones”.

Instead we have spineless shills who get into office and follow the dictates of the “party leaders” who are a pack of traitors leading us into the enslavement of their NWO.  Watch Art Thompson’s weekly presentation on jbs.org for the week of Nov 10-16 Contact Your Newly Elected Reps Now for an honest description of how the system actually works. We don’t end up with Representatives that actually represent our interests and this is why:

The Unstated Agenda

The purpose of this migration forgiveness is not to help the people as stated. It is designed to further dilute our national sovereignty with migrants who are loyal to the government that feeds them or the State not to the citizens with whom they have little in common with culturally. They will vote for more State and less freedom to satisfy their immediate needs. Meanwhile, they are muddying our national identity with no incentive to integrate as legal citizens sometimes not even learning the language.

A Nation of Immigrants?

The liberals always resort to the claim that “we are a nation of immigrants”. Name one country on this planet that isn’t. There is no nation that has not experienced migration including even those with hostile natural environments. No pure collection of people exist on this planet in any nation. That is what is referred to as a red herring which is to say a distraction to throw you off of the trail. This is not the point of resistance to illegal immigration.

The real intent of resistance to migration over immigration is to preserve societal order. Citizens preserve order by cooperating under accepted standards and laws. Naturalized and natural born citizens are taught and expected to adhere to the societal norms and which includes our nation’s Constitutional and natural rights.

Overburdening our schools, hospitals and other services with “free” (national debt generating in actuality) services for illegal immigrants does not contribute to the freedoms of those who are already naturalized or natural born citizens. It burdens them with increased taxes, lower quality services and decreased purchasing power from increased inflationary spending on illegal immigrants and their families. Each citizen has a stake in that game whether they acknowledge it or not. Each is impacted by it whether they acknowledge it or not as well.

The Response to Obama

The order should be ignored, plain and simple. It has no real Constitutional authority.

If Obama, the “executive”, tries to implement its intent, it should be responded to with impeachment proceedings. He is in violation of his oath of office which is to the best of his ability to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States which gives him NO authority under our Constitution to create laws. Period! Anything more than that is fraud and impeachable as a high crime or misdemeanor, take your pick.

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. Article 2, Section 4

Will Congress respond this way? Some may, most won’t. Let’s see who actually is growing a backbone in Congress these days. I hope this fight is just beginning but there is more to come I am sure.

The Illegal Children Immigrant Crisis- More Preparation for the New World Order?

The latest manipulation of the by the New World Order manipulators is illegal immigration taking the form of innocent children. Dig a little however and  you’ll find more than innocent children are at the heart of this engineered matter.

No Resistance from the Mexican Government

CNN showed a reporter of theirs crossing with illegals on a raft from Guatemala to Mexico which took about 5 minutes and cost the equivalent of $1.30 per rider. Mexico has very strict policies against illegal immigrants. Yet the Mexican authorities turn a blind eye to this event. They do absolutely nothing to stop it even though it is being done in plain sight and broad daylight. Red flag number one.

Train Ride in Open Air Daylight

Without resistance from authorities and at risk to themselves, the illegals next target is a ride on top of trains 1600 miles to the U.S. border. So far this year, 57,000 have reached our borders in 2014 with only 2,700 detained. All of this is taking place in broad daylight and plain view. Our government claims to know nothing about why this is happening.

Governor Perry of Texas hinted at the movement as conspiratorial and was promptly criticized by CNN reporters for implying that it is a conspiracy with no evidence to substantiate that implication. Of course, it’s not a conspiracy. It’s simply coincidental that Mexico just happens to ignore an obvious surge of illegal immigrant “children” riding openly on top of trains through their country and does nothing to stop the growing flow.

One might speculate that they might know where these “children” will end up and it ain’t gonna be in Mexico.

The Sudden Surge

The number of young illegal aliens flooding the border has skyrocketed in recent years. In 2009, only 6,639 unaccompanied alien children were resettled, and the number remained stable until 2011, with 7,120. In 2012, there were twice as many unaccompanied alien children at 14,271, the same year the administration announced its deferred action for young illegal aliens.

However, by 2013 there were 25,498. So far in 2014, there are over 50,000 of these child illegals. By the Obama administration’s own estimation, 230,000 unaccompanied alien minors are expected to cross through the Rio Grande Sector by the end of next year. You wonder how they can make these estimates so confidently. You might even think it is planned or something right? Red flag number two.

The Constitution in All of This?

And let’s not forget that this surge is covered under the U.S. Constitution. Article 4, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution reads:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion;

Does the sudden surge of illegal children not qualify as an invasion? Protection also includes economics as well as our Constitutional provisions regarding trade imply. Not to mention the MS-13 gang members thrown into the mix.

The VP of National Border Patrol Council 3307 Says- Obama Admin Releasing Murderers Into US

Meanwhile, the border patrol is obviously overwhelmed and noticing that not all who arrive are “children”. In fact, Border Patrol agent Chris Cabrera (VP of National Border Patrol Council 3307) notes that among the illegal “children” are confirmed gang members and criminals. A loophole was created in 2008 signed into law by George W. Bush apparently- The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008. It was enacted to prevent victims of child trafficking from being sent back to their captors. However, with the massive increase of unaccompanied minors there is a backlog of 3 to 5 years before a court hearing can be scheduled.

Meanwhile, the minors and teens are transferred to the Dept of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement and housed in shelters or placed with relatives and other sponsors. If they have violent backgrounds, they are free to continue their behaviors.

“Our agents aren’t allowed to do the job they were hired to do,” Cabrera told Fox News. “We’re walking more and more people out the door … they’re catch-and-release that have family units. The criminal aliens that are coming in, some of these young gang member kids that are coming in, and there’s no criminal history in the United States, we’re releasing them out the door and more and more it gets frustrating.”

Illegal Immigrant “Children” Include MS-13 Gang Members

An internal summary of Border Patrol operations at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Nogales (Arizona) Placement Center stated that 16 unaccompanied immigrant children being held at the facility are members of Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) transnational criminal gang.

The summary, which was obtained by the Townhall online magazine, noted that Border Patrol officials at Nogales were alerted to the MS-13 presence among the detainees when they discovered gang-related graffiti on the walls of the processing center. Townhall stated:

“Border Patrol Agents (BPAs) and Customs and Border Protection Officers (CBPOs), assigned to The Nogales Placement Center (NPC), discovered that 16 unaccompanied alien children (13 El Salvadoran males, two Guatemalan males and one Honduran male) currently being held at the NPC are members of Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13). The MS-13 gang members admitted to their gang associations following a discovery of graffiti at the NPC. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), and the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) were notified.”

Chris Cabrera again offered more substantive details. Cabrera told National Review that Border Patrol agents have reunited identified gang members with their families in the United States.

An officer had recently told Cabrera about a known teen member of MS-13 whom he was powerless to stop entering the country. Cabrera asked, in frustration: “If he’s a confirmed gang member in his own country, why are we letting him in here?”

“I’ve heard people come in and say, ‘You’re going to let me go, just like you let my mother go, just like you let my sister go. You’re going to let me go as well, and the government’s going to take care of us,’”

Cabrera said. “Until we start mandatory detentions, mandatory removals, I don’t think anything is going to change. As a matter of fact, I think it’s going to get worse.”

An Unstated Agenda?

Really, is this sudden surge of “children” simply coincidental? Tens of thousands crossing through the entire country of Mexico to our border, and our President’s only response is, “This is a crisis and we must take action.”

The sudden influx of tens of thousands of illegal children is an unaided crisis that just happened to escalate on its own? I personally find this highly unlikely. There more here than meets the eye.

In fact, this appears to be part of the plan to undermine our nation so that it can take its rightful place in the New World Order as George Bush Sr. put it.

The New World Order under the UN is the overall agenda of a select grouping of wealthy power brokers. The phrase began to openly appear in the 1990’s out of the mouths of leaders like Bush, Clinton, Kissinger and others. At the heart of this agenda is a One World Government under the UN umbrella or as the phrase on the back of the Federal Reserve Note dollar below the pyramid reads: Novus Ordo Seclorum or a New Order of the Ages. (This phrase 1st appeared on the dollar bill during the liberal anti-Constitutionalist’s administration of FDR by the way.)

Manipulating the People

The sudden surge is a way to leverage more immigrants into our country by manipulating the heart strings of the people. It’s not easy nor popular to take a hard line against “children”. It is also highly manipulative and a very insidious tactic.

It appears pretty clear that Mexico and quite possibly insiders in our own government are allowing it to happen and promoting it. Children, especially poverty stricken, uneducated ones, don’t tend to be very adept at planning trips that cross thousands of miles into unknown territory without help.

A cultural blend and economic downgrade adds fuel to the North American Union initiated by NAFTA. This so-called free trade agreement stitches the 3 nations of Canada, US and Mexico together as an economic and political region. Other blocks have been added over the years such as Columbia and the Dominican Republic with quite few others planned for other parts of the globe.

Morphing North American Into an EU?

The EU started as a trade agreement and has now morphed into an economic and political region with its own courts, currency, and more. Is the same intent being leveraged here? It would appear that way.

The more immigrants they can leverage, the easier it will be to merge the NAFTA union into one geographical, economic and cultural unit to match the EU. Immigration issues are a major issue in the EU already.

Then it a becomes more manageable to stitch the regions together under treaty’s making the UN the controlling entity. Of course, U.S. sovereignty and our Constitution go out the window in the process but if you read the so-called “free trade” agreements carefully you will see that has already happened. Just like our troops under NATO, the “free trade” agreements place decision making on trade between the signing parties under the authority of the UN, erasing our Constitutional trade sovereignty in the process.

Branding these immigrant as children is just another way to leverage legislation that legalizes immigrants since the parents will naturally be included in the deal. It is also another way to water down our population while wearing down our taxpayer. It creates additional burdens on publicly funded education and our medical care system. It also lowers our overall prosperity while passing more control to the State.

The Cost?

The recent surge in underage illegal immigrants crossing the southern border has prompted President Barack Obama to ask for $3.7 billion in additional funding, $1.8 billion of which would go to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which administers the UAC program.

The federal program for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC)—which provides long-term foster care, apparel, and interpreter services for thousands of young illegal immigrants, the majority of which are placed in the United States—has already cost $263 million this year. The program had a budget of $376.083 million last year, and is on pace to spend nearly $1 billion in 2014.

Health and Human Services (HHS) has requested a contingency fund for 2015, due to the “rapidly expanding Unaccompanied Alien Children program.”

The recent surge in underage illegal immigrants crossing the southern border has prompted President Barack Obama to ask for $3.7 billion in additional funding, $1.8 billion of which would go to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which administers the UAC program.

The majority of funding goes to nonprofit organizations and charities that provide living arrangements, education, health care, vocational training, mental health services, and other services.

The majority of funding for the UAC program goes towards foster care. Southwest Key, an Austin, Texas-based nonprofit that shelters unaccompanied alien children, is the largest government partner for the program, receiving grants worth $95,462,918 so far this fiscal year.

Nonprofits outside of border states also receive funding to shelter illegal alien children. The New Jersey Heartland Human Care Services in Chicago has received $19,118,403 this year, while the Union County Department of Human Services in New Jersey received $550,384 on March 20.

Is There a Cost Effective Solution?

However, there is a solution presented by Senator Tom Coburn (R., Okla.) that will quite likely never see the light of day:

Senator Coburn suggested recently that it would be cheaper to fly the children back home first class.

“The president just asked for $3.7 billion, for less than $20 million we can fly them all back first class,” Coburn added. “So think about how stupid our policy is.”

“We’re putting a lot of kids at risk,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “Remember, this is organized crime that is selling this and these three countries that you can get them here and they’ll be here and they’re extracting large amounts of money and then abusing children as they carry them up here.”

“It’s terrible. The best way to stop that is to have airplanes landing every day bringing these children back to their country of origin,” he said.

Instead, the media strums the public’s heartstrings, largely ignores the gang elements while the President does photo ops and press conferences criticizing the Republicans for not taking action.

The right action is likely what Senator Coburn suggested. One that will now be painted as heartless and quietly slipped under the rug. After all, it doesn’t quite seem to fit the overall now does it?

 

Citizen Alert: The Philadelphia Lew Blum Towing Parasite King

Beware of where you park in the cities these days. City governments need revenue and will gladly extract it from unsuspecting citizens through systems designed to entrap you.

Not being a resident of the city of Philadelphia and rarely driving to the city, I was unknowingly caught in one such scam quite recently. It cost me $205. The $5 part likely being the last scam in the process.

How The City and Lew Blum Towing Work It

I parked my car to have lunch with my kids (now all young adults). Two were in town visiting. One from New Lew Blum Towing ScamYork and the other from Los Angeles. Great lunch at a place called The Lift on 13th St. between Callowhill and Spring Garden Sts. While I ate, my car was being towed. Nice dessert huh?

It was parked in front of a red car inside the white line. I was careful when I parked to make
sure none of it was in the X’d out box. Unbeknownst to me at the time, in my haste to meet my offspring, I missed a few things.

The Parasite’s Spider’s Net

What I didn’t notice was the faded white line on the sidewalk and the fenced in, overgrown, pad locked and abandoned and obviously unused parking lot to my right with the signs on it. This was my mistake to the tune of $205 as it turned out.

What I did notice was the empty space where I parked my car. I panicked and called two of my daughters. Neither answered. I called my son-in-law and fortunately he did.

I told him I thought my car was stolen. He asked me if it was towed. Hadn’t thought of that. That is when I noticed the sign on the fence of the abandoned and unused parking lot. It had a number to call on it.

Lew Blum Towing- Working It All Day Long

While I was on the phone with him, I also noticed another car being towed on the next block up by Lew Blum Towing. Now, Philadelphia-20140726-00532it all suddenly fit. Apparently, this is an all day endeavor. No rest for the wicked as the saying goes.

I took photo’s and called the number on the sign. A dull sounding voice answered. I said, “I think you guys towed my car.”

He asked for the type of car which I described. The response was, “Yeah, we got it. $205 cash to pick it up.”Philadelphia-20140726-00529

I extracted the address. (It was on the sign which I didn’t notice until after I hung up.)

My son-in-law arrived a few minutes later. He took me to a local bank where I drew out the cash. We went up to 40th and Girard. Drove around for a bit looking for a parking lot. Not seeing any we scouted around a bit and noticed a tow truck parked on a side street. Then, we spotted this door. Whoda thunk?

Philadelphia-20140726-00538

When you open the door. You walk into a run-down, very narrow, and claustriphobically small dark room with a thick window and a slot at the bottom with two pad-locked doors. One with the Lew Blum proclamation “Parking Lot and Driveway Enforcement Specialists” on it. Gee, a new specialty- scamming citizens out of money. Nice way to make a living huh? (Pics are a bit blurry but you get the picture I think.)

The other was locked and marked Private facing you as you enter.

Philadelphia-20140726-00534

No one was present but I heard a TV on and voices. Couldn’t see into the room. Knocked on the window. No one answered. TV was too loud I guess. I noticed 2 unmarked bell buttons. Pushed the lower one figuring the other must be to the upstairs. A young black man eventually appeared. He asked me for a photo license and my keys. I reluctantly gave him both after some minimal resistance or obviously would not have gotten my car.

The 20% City Tax

I asked him why $205 when the sign says $175 and $25 daily storage fee. He said it was a 20% city tax. 20%? Uh, dude 20% of $200 is $40 and of $175 is $35. Uh, how does that equal $5 ya friggin moron? (Basic math apparently wasn’t his strong suit.) I ran through that in my head and didn’t say anything. I figured it was his self-imposed tip.

I told him that all I had was $20 for the extra $5 and asked him if he had any change. He said, “No, but there is a store on the corner you can get it from.” My waiting son-in-law fortunately had $5 so I didn’t have to go to the store which would probably have tried to make me buy something to get change was my speculation since it is likely a regular request.

He left and after a little wait came back with my keys and license. He took the money and gave me the license back. I asked him where the car would be. He replied, “Open the garage door next door and the keys will be on the dashboard.

The Steel Door

I went out the door and noticed a steel garage door to the right of the door. I tried to open it but it was solidly shut. A local black man in his 50’s I guessed was coming up the street. He passed and mentioned something about thePhiladelphia-20140726-00539 friggin scam. He obviously knew what was going on. Most street locals do and can give you the real scoop on more than you might think. It’s the middle class working stiff’s that end up the butt of most of these kind of spider’s nets.

The steel door rolled open after some delay. There was my car in front of another steel door. Just enough space between the steel doors to park your car and return to the safety of their scam center. Well, at least they were polite enough to leave the door open for me. Valet parking however is quite costly in the city these days however.

Very little human interaction. Just the exchange of your cash for your car. Is it even on the books? Who knows. Does Lew even declare it all? It’s all done in cash.

The Receipt

I did get a receipt which had the official Lew Blum Towing Co. Inc on it along with “Parking Lot Enforcement“, “Driveway Enforcement“. (See shot above for the official Lew Blum reception area.) Obviously, the City government and Lew Blum work together cooperatively since I watched another car parked in front of a fire hydrant being towed while I waited for my ride. But hey, it’s for the good of the citizens of course. Just ask honest Lew he’ll tell ya for sure.

After all, Lew’s website claims he makes most of his money from: “property owners, management companies and vehicles that need roadside assistance.” Sure Lew, and snakes really do have legs don’t they?

Notice the totals. $175 is along side “Service at Scene” (A questionable claim to say the least. You call towing someone’s car while they eat in a local restaurant service? For whom I wonder? Not for the private citizen obviously.) and $25 is alongside “Total Storage Charges” (They tow my car and then charge me $25 to store it for a couple of hours at the most. Part of the legalized theft scam obviously.)

The $5 so-called 20% city tax (Guess math wasn’t this dude’s major in school.) wasn’t beside any column. Just part of the total. Nice huh?Philadelphia-Towing-Scam-Receipt

An Expensive Lesson Learned

Cities are hurting for revenue. City and State debts just like our Federal Government which has a national debt sitting at $17.6 Trillion and growing exponentially higher at a greater rate of increase. Local taxes are growing and they are all crying poor. Banks are getting Billion$ bailouts amounting to Trillions. The ultra rich engineer tax breaks and put their money into Foundations to avoid taxes. (Which they use to direct that money into where they want it to go and keep it away from the hands of government. Tax exempt Foundations arose about the same time that the income tax began in 1913 BTW. How coincidental huh?)

Then, you have parasites like Lew protecting the property rights of abandoned, overgrown and pad locked parking lots. Real important work you know. A true service to human kind and our cities.

Meanwhile, a short block up, he was towing a car parked in front of a fire hydrant. Is that private property now Lew? Obviously not!

Who funds the city I wonder? I work in the city and pay city wage taxes amounting to thousands of $ a year? Now I pay Lew for something that impacted absolutely no one but the one caught in the web. (And Lew’s pocket’s too along with my scammed $5 tip.)

You really have to stay alert these days. Watch yourself on highways where the local and State police are waiting to spring a fine for not coming to a complete stop at that stop sign or for the tail end of your car in their arbitrary zone when the light turns red etc. And parking? Well, they’ll get you either way in the cities these days. If you pay for outrageous public parking (in many cases) they get a cut.

If you get scammed by not being fully aware of your choice, you get burnt like I did. Either way you are making up for their short falls and feeding a local parasite as well too.

The ultra rich aren’t. They have the money to pay for the rules to be constructed in their favor.

Meanwhile, as the old Amish grandfather said to the character Harrison Ford played, John Book, in Witness:

“You be careful out among them English.” Oh, and watch out from them Lew Blum signs too while you are at it.
