‘Starting on April 19, 1956, the federal government practiced and planned for a near-doomsday scenario known as Plan C. When activated, Plan C would have brought the United States under martial law, rounded up over ten thousand individuals connected to “subversive” organizations, implemented a censorship board, and prepared the country for life after nuclear attack.

There was no Plan A or B.’

Operation Northwoods
In the covert war against the communist regime in Cuba under the CIA’s Operation Mongoose, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff unanimously proposed state-sponsored acts of terrorism in side the United States.

NSA spying & mass surveillance
In the 1990′s, when anti-surveillance activists and media personalities were warning about the NSA’s huge domestic spying operation, they were treated as paranoid conspiracy theorists.

Well over a decade before the Snowden revelations, the NSA was busy intercepting and recording all electronic communications across the entire world under the Echelon program.

In 1999, the Australian government admitted that they were part of an NSA-led global intercept and surveillance program called Echelon in alliance with the US and Britain that could listen to “every international telephone call, fax, e-mail, or radio transmission,” on the planet.

The CIA’s heart attack gun
During Senate testimony in 1975 into illegal activities by the CIA, it was revealed that the agency had developed a dart gun capable of causing a heart attack. “At the first televised hearing, staged in the Senate Caucus Room, Chairman Church dramatically displayed a CIA poison dart gun to highlight the committee’s discovery that the CIA directly violated a presidential order by maintaining stocks of shellfish toxin sufficient to kill thousands,” a Senate web page explains.

CIA drug Trafficking
A ton of pure cocaine, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, is smuggled into the United States. Robert Bonner, former head of the Drug Enforcement Administration, offers Mike Wallace his take on what happened — and where the CIA went wrong.

IRS Scandal
IRS staffers had singled out conservative organizations with “tea party” or “patriots” in their name that were seeking tax-exempt nonprofit status, subjecting them to extra scrutiny to see if they were abusing the tax law as it relates to political activity. They grilled these conservative groups about their members, their donors, their public statements, and who they employed. And there is no evidence yet that the IRS systemically treated non-conservative groups with the same level of attention.

Smoke and Mirrors Will Not Save Us From Anthropogenic Climate Disruption Saturday, 10 January 2015 10:46By Robert James ParsonsTruthout |With 2015 billed as the make-it-or-break-it year for climate control, in anticipation of next December’s Paris conference, and in the midst of much vehement – if not downright virulent – controversy, it is worth proposing some perspective beyond what most of the media deign to serve up to us.

In an article that appeared in mid-November in the French online journal A l’encontre, Daniel Tanuro analyzed the “unprecedented” and “historic” agreement between the United States and China resulting from Barack Obama’s encounter with Xi Jinping just before the November G20 conference in Brisbane.

climate-changeThe insufficiency – to put it mildly – of this agreement, in comparison with the warnings issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its most recent report, is unbridgeable, he points out.

Citing the reduction of 26% promised by Obama for 2025, which ought to lower United States emissions to 5.368 gigatonnes (Gt), he notes: “According to the Kyoto Protocol (which the United States signed but never ratified), Uncle Sam should have reduced his emissions by 8% by 2012, relative to 1990. That means that the emissions should have dropped from 6.233 Gt (1990 figure) to 5.734 Gt – instead of which, they increased 0.2% per year, on average, to reach 6.526 Gt. In other words, Obama has committed the United States to reaching by 2025 a target that is almost no better than than the one that the United States was supposed to have reached two years ago.”

For China, it is similar: “Xi Jinping stipulated that China would begin to reduce its absolute emissions at the latest in 2030 and that ‘zero-carbon’ sources would then cover 20% of its energy needs. To take the full measure of this promise, one must bear in mind that these ‘zero-carbon’ energy sources, already in 2013, represented in China 9% of the primary consumption of energy and that the twelfth five-year plan has set a target of 15% for 2020. Given the current amounts being invested, an increase of a further 5% in over ten years is anything but a ‘performance': US$ 65 billion have already been invested in ‘non-fossil’ energy.”

According to the Kyoto Protocol, the ratifying countries committed themselves to reducing their green house gas emissions between 8% and 20% relative to 1990. As these emissions have continued to increase, the reductions since then have been completely canceled out………….

Began with our Great-Great Grand-Parents

The people of the United States have been living in a bubble since long before anyone alive today was even born. In that respect it is probably partially understandable that millions of people entered their lives as prisoners already, which 2015 is intended to finally finish.

What I mean by this outrageous statement is that the lies that we have been living-by go way, way back to the time of our great, great grandparents who were sold the current bill of goods that was put in place long before the First World War even began. The global end result has been the semi-successful global-criminal cabal that’s currently in charge of world-affairs, with little or no resistance, regardless of which aspect of this current self-destruction they are hell-bent on creating.

After literally centuries of drinking box-car loads of political Kool-Aid, the public has finally lost the ability to understand what has happened to most of us over the decades: The article below outlines the way this part of the problem is playing out in the world today.

“Gordon Duff’s speech clarified for the first time ever publicly to this important group of top diplomatic security and Intel experts that the root cause of the problem was not terrorism, but actually a large organized crime problem.

Duff noted that an organized crime problem this large has never occurred anytime before in history. He also clarified that this large organized crime syndicate is responsible for terrorism all over the world.

Duff explained that what is going on in Iraq and Syria with ISIS/Daish is not terrorism, it is simply ORGANIZED CRIME.

World terrorism is the work of an International Organized Crime Cabal (OCC) which has gotten control of the American Congress.

This is a large organized crime problem that must be understood at its simple root cause. Duff identified this large OCC as Israeli, and pointed out that this worldwide crime is on a scale never experienced before.
Duff went even further when he identified those associated with the organized crime syndicate who are responsible for starting ISIS/Daish, and this included two American generals — McNierney and Vallely — and one sitting senator, McCain.

The Citizens United Supreme Court case opened the door to the complete hijacking of Congress by the OCC. The court case was fixed and has had a disastrous result.

In various guest appearances on Veterans Today news reports hosted by Stew Webb, Duff has clarified that the OCC has been able to gain control over Congress in the last national election in November 2014.

This power grab occurred largely because of the “Citizens United” court case opened up the availability of large campaign contributions, which could be made to “buy” and control members of Congress by foreign-based entities who have interests counter to the citizens of the United States of America, aka “We the People”.

The Republican Party took control over the US Congress in November, primarily due to the significant support of two Israeli organized crime cabal bosses, with money from massive human sex-trafficking, prostitution and illegal narcotics trafficking.”

Shock Waves Part II: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/12/31/shock-waves-part-ii/

When our Great-Great Grandparents bought into this giant-lie the United States was living out her role as the Exceptional Nation, via the Monroe Doctrine, which entitled the USA to do whatever they wanted to do to any other nation: Not to mention that we were already living high on the political-hog from the massive amount of illegal profits, made possible by the slavery we maintained to reap the profits from tobacco and cotton crops through slavery.

It was shortly after this that Americans were sold the lies about the need to go to war “To Keep America Free”, with no explanations as to the real reasons behind the blood-baths which that concept unleashed. That produced the “Civil War” that we have never recovered from.

Flash forward to today’s current condition throughout the nation when it comes to the actual conditions in “The Prison State of America”.

“Prisons employ and exploit the ideal worker. Prisoners do not receive benefits or pensions. They are not paid overtime. They are forbidden to organize and strike. They must show up on time. They are not paid for sick days or granted vacations. They cannot formally complain about working conditions or safety hazards. If they are disobedient, or attempt to protest their pitiful wages, they lose their jobs and can be sent to isolation cells. The roughly 1 million prisoners who work for corporations and government industries in the American prison system are models for what the corporate state expects us all to become. And corporations have no intention of permitting prison reforms that would reduce the size of their bonded workforce. In fact, they are seeking to replicate these conditions throughout the society.

States, in the name of austerity, have stopped providing prisoners with essential items including shoes, extra blankets and even toilet paper, while starting to charge them for electricity and room and board. Most prisoners and the families that struggle to support them are chronically short of money. Prisons are company towns. Scrip, rather than money, was once paid to coal miners, and it could be used only at the company store. Prisoners are in a similar condition. When they go broke—and being broke is a frequent occurrence in prison—prisoners must take out prison loans to pay for medications, legal and medical fees and basic commissary items such as soap and deodorant. Debt peonage inside prison is as prevalent as it is outside prison…”

k) In 2005 only 10 to 15 percent of the people in prison were incarcerated for “Hard Core Crimes” the other 1,785,000 prisoners did not belong in prison at all: http://www.kirwanesque.net/?attachment_id=1293

“…But corporate profit is not limited to building and administering prisons. Whole industries now rely almost exclusively on prison labor. Federal prisoners, who are among the highest paid in the U.S. system, making as much as $1.25 an hour, produce the military’s helmets, uniforms, pants, shirts, ammunition belts, ID tags and tents. Prisoners work, often through subcontractors, for major corporations such as Chevron, Bank of America, IBM, Motorola, Microsoft, AT&T, Starbucks, Nintendo, Victoria’s Secret, J.C. Penney, Sears, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Eddie Bauer, Wendy’s, Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Fruit of the Loom, Motorola, Caterpillar, Sara Lee, Quaker Oats, Mary Kay, Microsoft, Texas Instruments, Dell, Honeywell, Hewlett-Packard, Nortel, Nordstrom’s, Revlon, Macy’s, Pierre Cardin and Target. Prisoners in some states run dairy farms, staff call centers, take hotel reservations or work in slaughterhouses. And prisoners are used to carry out public services such as collecting highway trash in states such as Ohio.

States, with shrinking budgets, share in the corporate exploitation. They get kickbacks of as much as 40 percent from corporations that prey on prisoners. This kickback money is often supposed to go into “inmate welfare funds,” but prisoners say they rarely see any purchases made by the funds to improve life inside prison.

The wages paid to prisoners for labor inside prisons have remained stagnant and in real terms have declined over the past three decades. In New Jersey a prisoner made $1.20 for eight hours of work—yes, eight hours of work—in 1980 and today makes $1.30 for a day’s labor. Prisoners earn, on average, $28 a month. Those incarcerated in for-profit prisons earn as little as 17 cents an hour.” There’s much more at this link: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-12-30/prison-state-america

What Americans have consistently failed to realize throughout our history is that “war” is not a natural state of affairs: It’s an outrageous crime against humanity, unless it comes from there being no other way for ordinary people to remain free. What we did when we converted national political policies from foreign policies into criminal-wars was what we continue to try to justify, without any facts at all. This has been what the United States and Israel, have done, in their desperate attempt to run the world as a global criminal cabal which answers to none of the laws by which the rest of the planet is supposed to live.

The way that the American public got into this massive lie, which we call ‘our history’, was by having created the lie that every man in this nation had to go to war, whenever they were told to do so: Regardless of whatever the facts might be that supposedly created the need for those “wars” in the first place. American-men and women took these orders largely for gospel. “Serving” in the military became almost a religious “rite of passage”­ no questions were allowed to be asked. That “honor” then became something which was continued generation to generation, but still without ever questioning the policies of the government, despite the fact that many would die in those illegal and obscene wars which we have expanded to include dozens of nations today.

Here are some current examples of some of our wars from this 8min plus video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=aYX4WeqQfRo

The exact same kind of lie began back in the 1800’s when “the police” were created by the filthy-rich to protect themselves from the less fortunate which they were using like herds of cattle, to be milked until there was nothing left of the original population except serfs or slaves.

Once the same kinds of traditions were developed surrounding “The Thin Blue Line” as some kind of honor oriented line of work, when in fact these people have become the protectors of all those that brought us the Prison State of America: And now they’re heavily involved in protecting the Global-Directors of the Criminal Cabal that are currently trying to murder 95% of all the people left on this planet.

Origins of the Police: https://worxintheory.wordpress.com/2014/12/07/origins-of-the-police/

This is how American’s were enticed to drink the boatloads of Kool Aid that led us to falsely believe that this nation and it’s fake leadership would never do exactly what they’re continuing to do, to us and to the world.

It’s time to end the nightmare that we allowed to grow from our simplistic belief in the basic goodness of our forefathers, on the one hand, and the exceptional superiority of our global ambitions that have added billions to the dead of this world, over the centuries, while we’ve been playing at being an Empire worthy of that name…

2015 is the year that actions must silence the millions, sometimes billions of words that have never meant anything because they have never been followed up by any actions that would have made anything that any of us have said; into the necessary-reality that needs to become part of the everyday facts of life.

Think about this: Tweets and Twitter along with Facebook are now involved in issuing policy decisions. That seems to be the extent of anything that anyone ever does about what these lawless bastards continue to do to the world each and every day. Watching videos is not acting. Listening to speeches or experts or to people like me, is not participating.

This has to change if we are to ever end the current war which BTW began in 1991, when Bush Senior attacked Saddam to shut down the last connection to his private criminality with the cabal, which he began by arresting Noriega while murdering over 4,000 Panamanians that he burned alive.

From 1991 to 2015 amounts to 24 years of uninterrupted war: A war on Iraq which we lost bigtime, even though it was the longest war in all of American History. The media still lies about the length of that war. They are afraid to admit the truth because the number of the dead was over 173,000 from the first Iraq war and no one wanted to even mention it, much less explain it!

2015 must be the year where people everywhere finally figure this whole thing out and end the lives of all those that created this masquerade that’s been going on for at least the last hundred and two years…

Noting that U.S. college costs have gone up 500% since 1985, the Washington Post recommends seven countries where U.S. students can go to college for free without bothering to learn the language of the natives or anything so primitive.

These are nations with less wealth than the United States has, but which make college free or nearly free, both for citizens and for dangerous illegals visiting their Homelands.

How do they do it?

Three of them have a higher top tax rate than the United States has, but four of them don’t.

What does the United States spend its money on that these other countries do not? What is the largest public program in the United States? What makes up over 50% of federal discretionary spending in the United States?

If you said “war,” it’s possible you were educated in a fine foreign country.

A comprehensive calculation of U.S. military spending puts it at over $1 trillion a year. The International Institute for Strategic Studies puts it at $645.7 billion in 2012. Using that smaller number, let’s compare the seven nations where Americans can find their human right to an education respected:

France $48.1 billion or 7.4% of U.S.
Germany $40.4 billion or 6.3% of U.S.
Brazil $35.3 billion or 5.5% of U.S.
Norway $6.9 billion or 1.1% of U.S.
Sweden $5.8 billion or 0.9% of U.S.
Finland $3.6 billion or 0.6% of U.S.
Slovenia $0.6 billion or 0.1% of U.S.

Oh, but those are smaller countries. Well, let’s compare military spending per capita:

United States $2,057
Norway $1,455 or 71% of U.S.
France $733 or 35% of U.S.
Finland $683 or 33% of U.S.
Sweden $636 or 31% of U.S.
Germany $496 or 24% of U.S.
Slovenia $284 or 14% of U.S.
Brazil $177 or 9% of U.S.

According to a book by George Williston called This Tribe of Mine: A Story of Anglo Saxon Viking Culture in America, the United States wages eternal war because of its cultural roots in the Germanic tribes that invaded, conquered, ethnically cleansed, or — if you prefer — liberated England before moving on to the slaughter of the Native Americans and then the Filipinos and Vietnamese and on down to the Iraqis. War advocate, former senator, and current presidential hopeful Jim Webb himself blames Scots-Irish American culture.

But most of medieval and ancient Europe engaged in war. How did Europe end up less violent than a place made violent by Europe? Williston points out that England spends dramatically less per capita on war than the United States does, yet he blames U.S. warmaking on English roots. And, of course, Scotland and Ireland are even further from U.S. militarism despite being closer to England and presumably to Scots-Irishness.

“We view the world through Viking eyes,” writes Williston, “viewing those cultures that do not hoard wealth in the same fashion or make fine iron weapons as child-like and ripe for exploitation.” Williston describes the passage of this culture down to us through the pilgrims, who came to Massachusetts and began killing — and, quite frequently, beheading — those less violent, acquisitive, or competitive than they.

Germans and French demonstrated greater respect for native peoples, Williston claims. But is that true? Including in Africa? Including in Auschwitz? Williston goes on to describe the United States taking over Spanish colonialism in the Philippines and French colonialism in Vietnam, without worrying too much about how Spain and France got there.

I’m convinced that a culture that favors war is necessary but not sufficient to make a population as warlike as the United States is now. All sorts of circumstances and opportunities are also necessary. And the culture is constantly evolving. Perhaps Williston would agree with me. His book doesn’t make a clear argument and could really have been reduced to an essay if he’d left out the religion, the biology metaphors, the experiments proving telepathy or prayer, the long quotes of others, etc. Regardless, I think it’s important to be clear that we can’t blame our culture in the way that some choose to blame our genes. We have to blame the U.S. government, identify ourselves with humanity rather than a tribe, and work to abolish warmaking.

In this regard, it can only help that people like Williston and Webb are asking what’s wrong with U.S. culture. It can be shocking to an Israeli to learn that their day of independence is referred to by Palestinians as The Catastrophe (Nakba), and to learn why. Similarly, many U.S. school children might be startled to know that some native Americans referred to George Washington as The Destroyer of Villages (Caunotaucarius). It can be difficult to appreciate how peaceful native Americans were, how many tribes did not wage war, and how many waged war in a manner more properly thought of as “war games” considering the minimal level of killing. As Williston points out, there was nothing in the Americas to compare with the Hundred Years War or the Thirty Years War or any of the endless string of wars in Europe — which of course are themselves significantly removed in level of killing from wars of more recent years.

Williston describes various cooperative and peaceful cultures: the Hopi, the Kogi, the Amish, the Ladakh. Indeed, we should be looking for inspiration wherever we can find it. But we shouldn’t imagine that changing our cultural practices in our homes will stop the Pentagon being the Pentagon. Telepathy and prayer are as likely to work out as levitating the Pentagon in protest. What we need is a culture dedicated to the vigorous nonviolent pursuit of the abolition of war.

How can we explain that in the 2lst century we are still training millions of men and women in our armed forces and sending them to war?

There are more choices than war or peace, there are multi-optional choices and a civilian-based non-military diplomatic-political policy has more chance of succeeding in solving a violent conflict.

In war, the cost in civilian lives is incalculable, not to mention the many military personnel whose lives are destroyed.  Then there is the cost to the environment and the cost to human potential as our scientists waste their lives planning and researching even more horrific weapons which increasingly, in modern war, kill more civilians than combatants.

For example, the United States and the United Kingdom committed genocide against the Iraqi people when, between 1990 and 2012, they killed 3.3 million people – including 750,000 children – through sanctions and wars.

We all also watched our television screens in horror in July and August this year as the Israeli military bombarded civilians in Gaza for 50 days.

But, why are we surprised at this cruelty of military when they are doing what they are trained to do – kill, at the behest of their politicians and some people?

It is shocking to listen to politicians and military boast of their military prowess when in lay persons’ terms what it means is killing of human beings.

Every day through our television and local culture, we are subjected to the glorification of militarism and bombarded with war propaganda by governments telling us we need nuclear weapons, arms manufacturers, and war to kill the killers who might kill us.

However, too many people do not have peace or the basics to help them achieve peace.

They live their lives struggling with the roots of violence, some of which are poverty, war, militarism, occupation, racism and fascism. They have seen that they release uncontrollable forces of tribalism and nationalism. These are dangerous and murderous forms of identity which we need to transcend.

To do this, we need to acknowledge that our common humanity and human dignity are more important than our different traditions; to recognize that our lives and the lives of others are sacred and we can solve our problems without killing each other; to accept and celebrate diversity and otherness; to work to heal the ‘old’ divisions and misunderstandings; to give and accept forgiveness, and to choose listening, dialogue and diplomacy; to disarm and demilitarize as the pathway to peace.

In my own country, in Northern Ireland, when faced with a violent and prolonged ethnic/political conflict, the civil community organized to take a stand, rejected all violence and committed itself to working for peace, justice and reconciliation.

Through unconditional, all-inclusive dialogue, we reached peace and continue to work to build up trust and friendship and change in the post-conflict era. The civil community took a leading role in this journey from violence to peace.

I hope this will give an example to other countries such as Ukraine, where it is necessary for an end to the war, and a solution of the problem on the basis of the Charter of the United Nations and the Helsinki Accords.

We are also challenged to continue to build structures through which we can cooperate and which reflect our relations of interconnection and interdependence.  The vision of the founders of the European Union to link countries together economically in order to lessen the likelihood of war among nations is a worthy endeavor.

Unfortunately instead of putting more energy into providing help for E.U. citizens and others, we are witnessing the growing militarization of Europe, its role as a driving force for armament and its dangerous path, under the leadership of the United States/NATO, towards a new ‘cold’ war and military aggression.

The European Union and many of its countries, which used to take initiatives in the United Nations for peaceful settlements of conflict, are now one of the most important war assets of the U.S./NATO front.  Many countries have also been drawn into complicity in breaking international law through U.S./U.K./NATO wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and so on.

It is for this reason that I believe NATO should be abolished and that steps be taken towards disarmament through non-violent action and civil resistance.

The means of resistance are very important. Our message that armed groups, militarism and war do not solve our problems but aggravate them challenges us to use new ways and that is why we need to teach the science of peace at every level of society.

The whole of civilization is now facing a challenge with the growth of what President Dwight Eisenhower (1953-1961) warned the U.S. people against – the military/industrial complex – saying that it would destroy U.S. democracy.

We know now that a small group made up of the military/industrial/media/corporate/academic elite, whose agenda is profit, arms, war and valuable resources, now holds power worldwide and has a stronghold on elected governments.  We see this in the gun and Israeli lobbies, among others, which wield great power over U.S. politics.

We have witnessed this in ongoing wars, invasions, occupations and proxy wars, all allegedly in the name of “humanitarian intervention and democracy”. However, in reality, they are causing great suffering, especially to the poor, through their policies of arms, war, domination and control of other countries and their resources.

Unmaking this agenda of war and demanding the implementation of justice, human rights and international law is the work of the peace movement.

We can turn our current path of destruction around by spelling out a clear vision of what kind of a world we want to live in, demanding an end to the military-industrial complex, and insisting that our governments adopt policies of peace, just economics and cooperation with each other in this multi-polar world.

American politicians are fond of telling their audiences that the United States is the greatest country in the world.  Is there any evidence for this claim?

Well, yes.  When it comes to violence and preparations for violence, the United States is, indeed, No. 1.  In 2013, according to a report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, the U.S. government accounted for 37 percent of world military expenditures, putting it far ahead of all other nations.  (The two closest competitors, China and Russia, accounted for 11 percent and 5 percent respectively.)  From 2004 to 2013, the United States was also the No. 1 weapons exporter in the world.  Moreover, given the U.S. government’s almost continuous series of wars and acts of military intervention since 1941, it seems likely that it surpasses all rivals when it comes to international violence.

This record is paralleled on the domestic front, where the United States has more guns and gun-related deaths than any other country.  A study released in late 2013 reported that the United States had 88 guns for every 100 people, and 40 gun-related deaths for every 400,000 people―the most of any of the 27 economically developed countries surveyed.  By contrast, in Britain there were 6 guns per 100 people and 1 gun-related death per 400,000 people.

Yet, in a great many other areas, the United States is not No. 1 at all.

Take education.  In late 2013, the Program for International Student Assessment released a report on how 15-year old students from 65 nations performed on its tests.  The report showed that U.S. students ranked 17th in reading and 21st in math.  An international survey a bit earlier that year by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that the ranking was slightly worse for American adults.  In 2014, Pearson, a multinational educational services company, placed the United States 20th in the world in “educational attainment”―well behind Poland and the Slovak Republic.

American healthcare and health fare even worse.  In a 2014 study of healthcare (including infant mortality, healthy life expectancy, and mortality from preventable conditions) in 11 advanced industrial countries, the Commonwealth Fund concluded that the United States ranked last among them.  According to the World Health Organization, the U.S. healthcare system ranks 30th in the world.  Other studies reach somewhat different conclusions, but all are very unflattering to the United States, as are studies of American health.  The United States, for example, has one of the world’s worst cancer rates (the seventh highest), and life expectancy is declining compared to other nations.  An article in the Washington Post in late 2013 reported that the United States ranked 26th among nations in life expectancy, and that the average American lifespan had fallen a year behind the international average.

What about the environment?  Specialists at Yale University have developed a highly sophisticated Environmental Performance Index to examine the behavior of nations.  In the area of protection of human health from environmental harm, their 2014 index placed the United States 35th in health impacts, 36th in water and sanitation, and 38th in air quality.  In the other area studied―protection of ecosystems―the United States ranked 32nd in water resources, 49th in climate and energy, 86th in biodiversity and habitat, 96th in fisheries, 107th in forests, and 109th in agriculture.

These and other areas of interest are dealt with by the Social Progress Index, which was developed by Michael Porter, an eminent professor of business (and a Republican) at Harvard.  According to Porter and his team, in 2014 the United States ranked 23rd in access to information and communications, 24th in nutrition and basic medical care, 31st in personal safety, 34th in water and sanitation, 39th in access to basic knowledge, 69th in ecosystem sustainability, and 70th in health and wellness.

The widespread extent of poverty, especially among children, remains a disgrace in one of the world’s wealthiest nations.  A 2013 report by the United Nations Children’s Fund noted that, of the 35 economically advanced countries that had been studied, only Rumania had a higher percentage of children living in poverty than did the United States.

Of course, the United States is not locked into these dismal rankings and the sad situation they reveal about the health, education, and welfare of its citizens.  It could do much better if its vast wealth, resources, and technology were employed differently than they are at present.

Ultimately, it’s a matter of priorities.  When most U.S. government discretionary spending goes for war and preparations for war, it should come as no surprise that the United States emerges No. 1 among nations in its capacity for violence and falls far behind other nations in providing for the well-being of its people.

Americans might want to keep this in mind as their nation embarks upon yet another costly military crusade.

Russia’s Chamber of Commerce Member: United States Leading Force Behind Ukrainian Crisis

29 Sept 2014 The United States is the leading force that organized the crisis in Ukraine, member of Russia’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry committee on energy strategy and development of the fuel-energy complex Rustam Tankaev said Monday. “The Ukrainian crisis is certainly a difficult and complex problem but the driving force that organized it was the United States,” Tankaev said at a round table at Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency while discussing the results of the tripartite gas talks, which took place in Berlin on September 26. “The United States has had two main areas of work. The first was to deliver a blow to Russia’s economy…it is a powerful and complex blow to the economy. The second task was a blow to the economy of the European Union,” he added.

Ft. Benning, Georgia — According to sources, the Military-Industrial Complex will engineer the global conflict of World War III. The Military-Industrial Complex refers to the intricate and often complex policy and monetary relationships existing between legislators, national armed forces and the military industrial base supports them. Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower spoke of the American relationship between greed and might in his Farewell Address to the Nation on January 17, 1961, where he warned:

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so security and liberty may prosper together.”

Sources believe Eisenhower referred to a number of historical wars referred the complex. The most notable, the Banana Wars, in which military interventions were most often carried out by the United States Marine Corps to protect the United State’s financial stakes of bananas, tobacco, sugar cane and various other products throughout the Caribbean, Central America and Northern South America. However, many Americans remain unaware of the complex ever since, but ever-present of the United State’s growing presence around the world. Sources believe the reason for war revolves around the dollar.

After World War II, the Bretton Woods system of monetary established the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), which today is part of the World Bank Group. The compound also established the rules for commercial and financial relations among the world’s major industrial states, making the American dollar the world’s reserve currency. On August 15, 1971, the United States unilaterally terminated convertibility of the US dollar to gold. This brought the Bretton Woods network to an end, the dollar become fiat currency. This action, referred to as the Nixon shock, convulsed a situation in which the United States dollar became a reserve currency used, received by petroleum exporting countries (OPEC) in exchange for oil.

Conspiracy theorists believe American intervention the only weapon against worldwide financial collapse, to keep countries from selling oil in another currency. However, sources believe a global conflict revolving around the region will occur in the upcoming decades.

Suspicions Run Deep in Iraq (and Elsewhere) That C.I.A. and the Islamic State Are United

–‘It is obvious to everyone that the Islamic State is a creation of the United States and Israel.’

20 Sept 2014 ‘Conspiracy’ theories still circulating from the streets of Baghdad to the highest levels of Iraqi government that the C.I.A. is secretly behind the same extremists that it is now attacking. The demonstration on Saturday was the latest in a series of signals from Shiite leaders or militias…warning the United States not to put its soldiers back on the ground. Mr. Obama has pledged not to send combat troops, but he seems to have convinced few Iraqis. “We don’t trust him,” said Raad Hatem, 40. Haidar al-Assadi, 40, agreed. “The Islamic State is a clear creation of the United States, and the United States is trying to intervene again using the excuse of the Islamic State,” he said.

Three major thesis are in competition concerning the culprit of the 9/11 attacks:

 

1. Islam Job: the official conclusion of the 9/11 Commission, blaming Muslim terrorists in general, and Osama bin Laden in particular;
2. Inside Job: the dominant thesis within the so-called 9/11 Truth movement, which accuses the American government, or a faction within the American Deep State;
3. Mossad Job: the rising alternative thesis within the community of truth seekers, which claim that the masterminds were a Zionist network close to the Israeli Likud.

There are variations on each thesis and middle grounds between them, but three camps can clearly be distinguished: the first ridicule the second as “conspiracy theorists”, while the second loath the third as anti-Semites. Each thus justifies its refusal to weigh the evidence produced by the other. Acknowledging this reality, by renouncing the bipolar vision of an information warfare between official liars and 9/11 truthers, and paying attention to the debate (or absence of the debate) between Inside-jobbers and Mossad-jobbers, is the first step toward a paradigm shift in “9/11ology”.

JFK 911This article takes the view of the third thesis. The author belongs to those who, after thousands of hours of research, came to the conclusion that the 9/11 false flag operation was planned by a Zionist network, with the aim of dragging the United States into a “war on terror” of their invention, of which the only ultimate beneficiary will be Israel, as Netanyahu well understood from the very day: “It’s very good […], it will generate immediate sympathy […], strengthen the bond between our two peoples.”[1]

I have already listed the evidence against Israel in a previous article and in my book JFK-9/11 (Progressive Press, 2014). The subject of this article is not the truth on 9/11—who did what and how—, but the media war on 9/11: who says what and why. Nevertheless, such an approach requires that we are able to weigh the credibility of each claim, and we will do that on a few key points.

We can notice from the outset that theses 1 and 3 each accuse a foreign power, unlike thesis 2. Before even looking at the evidence, it is obvious that an Outside Job thesis is more credible than the Inside Job thesis. There is something monstrous in the idea that a government can deceive and terrorize its own citizens by killing thousands of them, just for starting a series of wars which are not even in the nation’s interest. By comparison, a foreign power attacking the US under the false flag of a third power almost seems like fair play. This is an important remark, because it makes us wonder how and why the 9/11 Truth movement has been led to endorse massively the outrageous thesis 2 without even considering the more likely thesis 3. This is one of the questions I will tackle here.

The thesis that the masterminds of 9/11 worked for Israel does not mean that the Bush administration is innocent. Thesis 3 admits that thesis 2, unlike thesis 1, is not completely false and rests on hard evidence pointing to US complicity. But it claims that thesis 2 overrates that evidence while ignoring the evidence pointing to Israel. The question is to what extent it does so intentionally, that is, to what extent thesis 2 is a “controlled opposition” intended to cover up the truth of thesis 3.

Asking this type of question does not mean suspecting anyone who defends an erroneous or incomplete theory of being a hypocrite. Most people defending one theory or the other do so sincerely, based on the information they have access to. I have myself been a believer in thesis 1 for 7 years, and in thesis 2 for 2 years, before progressively moving on to thesis 3 from 2010. On the other hand, we can assume that those who lead masses into error on a long term, are not just mistaken but lying —they may also be lying to themselves, i.e., engaged in self-deception. In any case, it is legitimate to investigate the background and the means of opinion makers, and when they are caught lying or distorting the truth, we can ponder about their motivation.

This is what we will do in the first part, so as to demonstrate that liers are not confined to the official storytellers’ camp. It is not enough that someone challenges the official Big Lie for us to believe him blindly; his arguments and allegations should be judged by the same standard. The purpose of the two following examples is, firstly, to show the need for a critical mind when listening to dissenting theses, and, secondly, to show the need for a new paradigm taking into account the several layers of lies stacked on top of the truth. We will outline this new paradigm in a second part, in the form of a working hypothesis. Then, in a third part, we will see if this new paradigm is consistent with certain technical issues currently dividing 9/11 truthers.

The BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) at their summit in Brazil said they would give the United States until the end of 2014 to reform the world monetary system including the IMF and the World Bank. The Obama administration has since decided to up the ante and pass more toothless sanctions against Russia. The US had fined BNP Paribas $9 billion for daring to trade with Russia and Iran.

The facts left out of the above in most media accounts are that the Rothschilds own BNP Paribas. and that their Parisian bank is technically bankrupt. In American parlance we are at the point where the rubber meets the road. Do the economic experts running the United States actually know what they are doing?

Dr Willie outlined from his sources a chain of events that could unfold over the next few months. It is difficult to put a date certain when the Dollar Dies but we are on an Express Train headed for a Brick Wall. And America has passengers from other nations on board looking for a safe exit because they know the men in charge in Washington and New York are stark raving mad.

The first actual event Jim Willie mentioned will be a disappointing harvest in the Ukraine. A poor harvest in an agricultural country will doom the Kiev regime which is a good thing. Another source of complaint will be the returning veterans sent home after the ceasefire. They are angry. The Kiev coup leaders are so incompetent that they sent their draftees into battle with poor support and inadequate weapons. Their army in some cases was never paid. These are men who could have made money in the fields. There are videos of the returning veterans showing exceptionally high levels of anger. The US stole Ukraine’s gold and has ordered them to allow GMO crops to be planted. The neighboring states of Hungary and Russia have banned GMO as a health risk. The next round of elections should be interesting but of no consequence to us though we should all be grateful to Putin that Washington’s insanity was not contagious.

Lost in the mainstream press is the fact that the resistance to Kiev was swollen with foreign volunteers who hate the EU. These men are seasoned veterans from NATO countries. Brits from the SAS were fighting alongside French, Germans, Danes and others against the IMF-EU installed dictator in Kiev. These men are resistance fighters in the war against the New World Order. That is why the Department of Homeland Security says returning veterans are the number one threat to the government in Washington.

Dr Willie has been reporting for quite awhile on the growing friendship between the Saudis and the other Gulf States and China. The Chinese and the Saudis hold monthly ministerial level meetings. A few hundred wealthy Arabs have been sending their 400 ounce gold bars to Switzerland to have them recast into 99.99% pure kilogram size bars. Those kilogram gold bars are to be part of a gold backed yuan that will trade with other gold and commodity backed currencies.

This is to be a distributed system with letters of credit based on gold to facilitate trade as opposed to the current centrally controlled one where one man in Washington can shut down your economy because you do not think Iran has a program to build a nuclear weapon. So what if the US National Intelligence Estimate which relies on the best data from America’s 16 intelligence agencies says there is no such program. Jewish Lobby campaign contributors have told both political parties there is one and your country must be bankrupted through American sanctions for defying the will of Benyamin Netanyahu.

The Petrodollar is about all that is keeping the US dollar from sinking. Henry Kissinger started the Petrodollar system to replace the dollar gold exchange system which had originated at Bretton Woods in 1944 and ended Monday August 16, 1971 when Nixon closed the gold window. The Bretton Woods agreement essentially took the British pound system which had ruled international trade since the defeat of Napoleon. That British domination of trade hit a serious bump on September 21, 1931 when Britain went off the gold standard.  That depressed liquidity and sent the entire world even deeper into Depression. The US dollar did not formally replace the pound in trade until 1944.

The problem in the West is that we have debt based currencies and fractional reserve banking which sets us up for a fall. Under our system a Banker can charge you interest on money he created out of nothing even if we were on a gold standard. The money he lends you is in a checking account deposit he created out of nothing. Everyone in the country actually should share in the interest received for the loan because the Banker was allowed to inflate their currency which devalued their purchasing power. It was their loss but the Banker gets all of the gain.

The other problem with fractional reserve banking is that all that debt money leads to a Boom which attracts a lot of investments into the wrong part of the economy in the Boom phase. Booms are created when Banks loan out ten times as much as they receive in deposits. Busts are equally hard on the way down. When the Bank forecloses on a $100,000 loan, they have to call in a million dollars in loans. That contracts the Money Supply which really does serious harm. In the Great Depression Americans did die from starvation. The US had a Depression in the 19th century which lasted longer than the Great Depression. It was called the Great Contraction.

The seeds of the dollar’s destruction were sown in Wall Street’s post war plans. The Bankers did not trust the Americans so they flooded the US with Jewish refugees and then with legal and illegal aliens from everywhere. This population surge and division made resistance for Americans more difficult. But it also required Americans for the first time to begin importing raw materials to meet the needs of the added population.

The Petrodollar was a necessity because currencies depend upon supply and  demand to set their value. The US was increasing the Supply of dollars to pay for wars and for the occupation of foreign lands. And also for unlimited population growth due to legal and illegal immigration forcing the US to become a net importer of many raw materials. This put downward pressure on wages as it pushed prices higher. Instead of correcting these problems politicians printed more dollars. The Petrodollar meant that people overseas could buy oil with the dollars they earned selling raw materials, cars, electronics, clothes and a lot of other things to America. The Gulf States agreed to accept dollars which they used to buy US Treasury bonds. This solved two problems. The Arabs covered America’s budget deficit. And the problem of the US perpetual trade deficit at least appeared to be solved.

In exchange the US promised to keep the Mad Dog of the Mideast, Israel, on a short leash. The US did go after Libya and Iraq because they refused to sell dollars for oil. They wanted euros and gold.  But the US also attacked Iraq in 2003 because Israel had demanded that they go down for their support of the Palestinians. And Syria had to be attacked by ISIS, Al Qaeda, Al Nusra and those fun loving cannibals at the FSA because Israel wanted Obama to take down the main allies of Lebanon. Hezbollah had defeated them in the 2006 Lebanon war. And if Syria were taken down, Israel hopes America could go to war with Iran and maybe their allies in Russia and China. World War III might kill a lot of Americans but who in the Israeli government cares. God made so many Americans.

The United States has failed to keep up its end of the Petrodollar agreement to protect Muslims from the crazies in Israel. Time ran out on that deal. Besides the dollar is about to collapse. A lot of multi-billionaire investors including George Soros are betting on a stock market collapse. There is no reason for the economy in America to be where it is except that Bretton Woods gave the US the right to print the international reserve currency meaning we could export inflation all over the world. Hard working miners in Africa, Poland and Latin America have been tricked into working for free by paying for their labors in I Owe You Nothing Federal Reserve Notes. And retired workers all over the world whose pensions funds were invested in dollars could face starvation unless their fund managers dump dollars very, very soon.

The BRICS nations have allies who are working with them to undo the dollar as the international reserve currency. One of those allies is NATO member Turkey which has observer status with the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Russo-Chinese alliance. Iran is a member of the SCO. China elevated Iran’s rank and singled them out as a key ally. That message has not been well received in either Israel or in Washington which is owned by the Jewish Lobby. Turkey has been a traditional lead player in gold backed trading in the region. Their Bankers are on board with the BRICS alliance against the dollar.

The question is: where does Germany go and when? Angela Merkel might even retire rather than go into a coalition after their September 22nd elections. There are quite a few people in Germany angry that the US stole their gold. Germany is currently locked into the European Union and the euro. Germans are a very productive people. Supply and demand would make their Deutschmark very valuable if they had one. A high priced currency does make imports cheap but it also makes exports expensive.

Having Germany, Finland and the Netherlands in the EU is about all that makes their trade cartel worth joining and their currency, the euro, worth anything at all. People want things Germany makes. They can afford to buy them because southern Europe is a basket case supported by the euro. The perpetual deficit regimes in the south lower the value of the euro. This depressed euro enables German businesses to sell more overseas. But the down side is that Germany is called to bail out very ungrateful people. And the Germans have about reached the limit of their ability to bail out everyone on the planet. The Germans owe the Americans nothing after they stole their gold and defrauded the world with their Paper Ponzi schemes.

Dr Willie sees this German issue coming to a head over banking. The banks of Europe are in worse shape than Americans think. And in turn America is in far worse shape than Europeans understand. I saw a German journalist interview an Englishman who used to be the chief correspondent for his paper in America. He is currently his paper’s senior business editor. Neither man had a clue as to how bad things are in the US. Dr Willie said the Germans might let one of their major banks collapse without bailing them out. Deutsche Bank is one of the world’s largest. In recent years they have had Jewish CEOs. Dr Willie said if that bank went under that the French banks would go and that the southern European banks would follow. London and US banks would fall soon afterwards. We are talking about hundreds of trillions of dollars in losses if you count Credit Default Swaps.

So what happens after a major European bank collapses? No more subsidies to the Americans. Too expensive. Tens of millions of Europeans will want food and will refuse to send more of their money to the corrupt regime that destroyed their banking system. It was a J P Morgan employee Blythe Masters who invented Credit Default Swaps and made this mountain of Unpayable Debt possible. Dr Willie sees Germany going for a trade deal with Russia and accepting their gold backed ruble. Germany will probably take Austria and maybe even the Netherlands and Finland with them. Russia seems unlikely to invade Finland as Joe Stalin did many decades ago.

So when does this happen? I think very early in 2015. That is when Obamacare exemptions expire. And it is when Group health insurance plans are subjected to higher premiums and deductibles.  Zero Hedge had a few articles of late that could explain to people overseas and in Washington how bad things are in America. 53 million Americans are temps, independent contractors and part timers. 30.7 million Americans are federal, state and local government workers. 92.3 million Americans of working age are not in the labor market at all. Stay At Home Moms started going out of style in the 1970s when inflation and declining wages first began to take their toll.  As previously mentioned, many billionaire investors like George Soros are betting on a massive drop in the stock market. The Central Banks have been caught buying stock index futures to drive the markets higher and to keep small investors in the market.

That American Express train is headed to a Brick Wall. Russia and China will, along with the other BRICS nations and their allies, be offering the Germans, the Saudis and the rest of the world a safe exit from an otherwise fatal crash. Unfortunately, there is no exit for the US, Great Britain and the other Europeans apart from those who take the Russo-Chinese lifeline. That is unless the US military which has been preparing for martial law for at least two decades were to intervene and to begin arresting Bankers and seizing their assets. At some point, the US military will realize with certainty that Nationwide Food Riots will be breaking out in the very near future unless they lead the revolt against Wall Street.

“My administration has been closely monitoring the situation in Egypt, and I know that we will be learning more tomorrow when day breaks.  As the situation continues to unfold, our first concern is preventing injury or loss of life.  So I want to be very clear in calling upon the Egyptian authorities to refrain from any violence against peaceful protestors.

 

The people of Egypt have rights that are universal.  That includes the right to peaceful assembly and association, the right to free speech, and the ability to determine their own destiny.  These are human rights.  And the United States will stand up for them everywhere.”

 

– U.S. President Barack Obama, January 28, 2011

 

The events in Ferguson, Missouri went from what could have been just another all too common and tragic incident in which an unarmed black man is killed by an overly aggressive and unprofessional police force, to what may be a historically significant event in American history. So how did this transformation occur and what does it mean going forward? Those are the two questions I intend to address in this post.

There are two primary factors that have collided to create the current out of control situation in a suburb roughly 15 miles northwest of St. Louis, which before this past weekend, almost no one had ever heard of. The first factor is the underlying tension in American society that I have been writing about for several years now. Nowhere is this tension more apparent than in the minority majority inner cities or their outskirts. Being a privileged person, I have thankfully never experienced the dehumanization and oppression felt by so many in these disenfranchised communities, but I can still understand the fact that these neighborhoods are ground zero in the civil unrest that is likely to continue into the foreseeable future.

The second factor is the entirely inappropriate and dangerous militarization of police forces throughout these United States. While extreme tension between impoverished communities and the police has been well documented for decades and expressed through music and movies (I grew up with NWA’s Fuck Tha Police and Colors), the cops were generally speaking merely men and women driving around in patrol cars with guns and batons. Not to dismiss the violence that can and has been inflicted through those means, but the police in recent years have taken things to a whole new frightening level: Total Militarization.

I consider this trend to be such an existential threat to freedom and civil liberties that I have expended a considerable deal of time and energy over the past several years highlighting it. I have covered the topic too many times to list here (I will provide a compilation at the end of this post), but there is one in particular I want to mention. The post was published two months ago and was titled: The Militarization of Police Continues…Machine Guns, Grenade Launchers, Silencers and More. In it I quoted the following from a New York Times article:

During the Obama administration, according to Pentagon data, police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.

 

The equipment has been added to the armories of police departments that already look and act like military units. Police SWAT teams are now deployed tens of thousands of times each year, increasingly for routine jobs. Masked, heavily armed police officers in Louisiana raided a nightclub in 2006 as part of a liquor inspection. In Florida in 2010, officers in SWAT gear and with guns drawn carried out raids on barbershops that mostly led only to charges of “barbering without a license.”

I then concluded the post with the following observation:

Of all the bad ideas currently being implemented in these United States, turning the police into soldiers is certainly near the top of the list

This may be some good reading to some ppl. I think it is a must read.
Hope u all like it. Stop being nice it is a demonic word. Look it up. Don’t let anyone call u nice and you accept it anymore. Grammer and Glamorous mean the same thing. You learn to spell in grammer schooling and to accept other demonic spells as reality. Verbs and all that noun crap is as demonic as hell is hot. Mind control l0l.  English is a bag of trick language and is required to be altered and even removed from societies. Easy come easy go you know. We must let all this BS go once and for all and stand up-right. The truth can not be altered at all ever.  TIP must be listened too or we all suffer the consequences right.
Thanks

The information is this article is not intended in any manner to replace qualified legal advice.

Our forefathers, weary of the oppressive measures that King George III’s government forced upon them, in common declared their independence from England in 1776. They were not expected to be successful in that resistance. The moneyed people had backed England for two major reasons. First, our forefathers wanted a rigid, written Constitution “set in concrete.” They were familiar with the so-called Constitution of England which consisted largely of customs, precedents, traditions, and understandings, often vague and always flexible. They wanted the principle of English common law, that an act done by any official person or lawmaking body beyond his or its legal competence was simply void. Second, the thirteen little colonies desired to base their union on substance (gold and silver) — real money. They well knew how the despotic governments of Europe were mortgaged to the hilt — lock, stock, and barrel, the land, the people, everything — to certain wealthy men who controlled the banks, the currency, and all credit, who lent credit but did not loan gold and silver!

The United States of America was made up of a union of what is now fifty sovereign States, a three-branch (legislative, executive, and judicial) Republic known as The United States of America, or as termed in this article, the Continental United States. Its citizenry live in one of the fifty States, and its laws are based on the Constitution, which is based on Common Law. It has become an administrative (bureaucratic) legislative democracy via the obligation of contract being extended by duplicity and deception.

Less than one hundred years after we became a nation, a loophole was discovered in the Constitution by cunning lawyers in league with the international bankers. They realized that a separate nation existed, by the same name, that Congress had created in Article I, Section 8, Clause 17. This “United States” is a Legislative Democracy within the Constitutional Republic, and is known as the Federal United States. It has exclusive, unlimited rule over its Citizenry, the residents of the District of Colombia, the territories and enclaves (Guam, Midway Islands, Wake Island, Puerto Rico, etc.), and anyone who is a Citizen by way of the 14th Amendment (naturalized Citizens).

Both United States have the same Congress that rules in both nations. One “United States,” the Republic of fifty States, has the “stars and stripes” as its flag, but without any fringe on it. The Federal United States’ flag is the stars and stripes with a yellow fringe, seen in all the courts. The abbreviations of the States of the Continental United States are, with or without the zip codes, Ala., Alas., Ariz., Ark., Cal., etc. The abbreviations of the States under the jurisdiction of the Federal United States, the Legislative Democracy, are AL, AK, AZ, AR, CA, etc. (without any periods).

Under the Constitution, based on Common Law, the Republic of the Continental United States provides for legal cases

  1. at Law,
  2. in Equity, and
  3. in Admiralty:

(l) Law is the collective organization of the individual right to lawful defense. It is the will of the majority, the organization of the natural right of lawful defense. It is the substitution of a common force for individual forces, to do only what the individual forces have a natural and lawful right to do: to protect persons, liberties, and properties; to maintain the right of each, and to cause justice to reign over us all. Since an individual cannot lawfully use force against the person, liberty, or property of another individual, then the common force — for the same reason — cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person, liberty, or property of individuals or groups. Law allows you to do anything you want to, as long as you don’t infringe upon the life, liberty or property of anyone else. Law does not compel performance. Today’s so-called laws (ordinances, statutes, acts, regulations, orders, precepts, etc.) are often erroneously perceived as law, but just because something is called a “law” does not necessarily make it a law. [There is a difference between “legal” and “lawful.” Anything the government does is legal, but it may not be lawful.]

(2) Equity is the jurisdiction of compelled performance (for any contract you are a party to) and is based on what is fair in a particular situation. The term “equity” denotes the spirit and habit of fairness, justness, and right dealing which would regulate the intercourse of men with men. You have no rights other than what is specified in your contract. Equity has no criminal aspects to it.

(3) Admiralty is compelled performance plus a criminal penalty, a civil contract with a criminal penalty.

By 1938 the gradual merger procedurally between law and equity actions (i.e., the same court has jurisdiction over legal, equitable, and admiralty matters) was recognized. The nation was bankrupt and was owned by its creditors (the international bankers) who now owned everything — the Congress, the Executive, the courts, all the States and their legislatures and executives, all the land, and all the people. Everything was mortgaged in the national debt. We had gone from being sovereigns over government to subjects under government, through the use of negotiable instruments to discharge our debts with limited liability, instead of paying our debts at common law with gold or silver coin.

The remainder of this article explains how this happened, where we are today, and what remedy we have to protect ourselves from this system.

Our Present Commercial System of “Law” and the REMEDY Provided for Our Protection

The present commercial system of “law” has replaced the old and familiar Common Law upon which our nation was founded. The following is the legal thread which brought us from sovereigns over government to subjects under government, through the use of negotiable instruments (Federal Reserve Notes) to discharge our debts with limited liability instead of paying our debts at common law with gold or silver coin.

The change in our system of law from public law to private commercial law was recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States in the Erie Railroad vs. Thompkins case of 1938, after which case, in the same year, the procedures of Law were officially blended with the procedures of Equity. Prior to 1938, all U.S. Supreme Court decisions were based upon public law — or that system of law that was controlled by Constitutional limitation. Since 1938, all U.S. Supreme Court decisions are based upon what is termed public policy.

Public policy concerns commercial transactions made under the Negotiable Instrument’s Law, which is a branch of the international Law Merchant. This has been codified into what is now known as the Uniform Commercial Code, which system of law was made uniform throughout the fifty States through the cunning of the Congress of the United States (which “United States” has its origin in Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, as distinguished from the “United States,” which is the Union of the fifty States).

In offering grants of negotiable paper (Federal Reserve Notes) which the Congress gave to the fifty States of the Union for education, highways, health, and other purposes, Congress bound all the States of the Union into a commercial agreement with the Federal United States (as distinguished from the Continental United States). The fifty States accepted the “benefits” offered by the Federal United States as the consideration of a commercial agreement between the Federal United States and each of the corporate States. The corporate States were then obligated to obey the Congress of the Federal United States and also to assume their portion of the equitable debts of the Federal United States to the international banking houses, for the credit loaned. The credit which each State received, in the form of federal grants, was predicated upon equitable paper.

This system of negotiable paper binds all corporate entities of government together in a vast system of commercial agreements and is what has altered our court system from one under the Common Law to a Legislative Article I Court, or Tribunal, system of commercial law. Those persons brought before this court are held to the letter of every statute of government on the federal, state, county, or municipal levels unless they have exercised the REMEDY provided for them within that system of Commercial Law whereby, when forced to use a so-called “benefit” offered, or available, to them, from government, they may reserve their former right, under the Common Law guarantee of same, not to be bound by any contract, or commercial agreement, that they did not enter knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally.

This is exactly how the corporate entities of state, county, and municipal governments got entangled with the Legislative Democracy, created by Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, and called here The Federal United States, to distinguish it from the Continental United States, whose origin was in the Union of the Sovereign States.

The same national Congress rules the Continental United States pursuant to Constitutional limits upon its authority, while it enjoys exclusive rule, with no Constitutional limitations, as it legislates for the Federal United States.

With the above information, we may ask: “How did we, the free Preamble citizenry of the Sovereign States, lose our guaranteed unalienable rights and be forced into acceptance of the equitable debt obligations of the Federal United States, and also become subject to that entity of government, and divorced from our Sovereign States in the Republic, which we call here the Continental United States?” We do not reside, work, or have income from any territory subject to the direct jurisdiction of the Federal United States. These are questions that have troubled sincere, patriotic Americans for many years. Our lack of knowledge concerning the cunning of the legal profession is the cause of that divorce, but a knowledge of the truth concerning the legal thread, which caught us in its net, will restore our former status as a free Preamble citizen of the Republic.

The answer follows:

Our national Congress works for two nations foreign to each other, and by legal cunning both are called The United States. One is the Union of Sovereign States, under the Constitution, termed in this article the Continental United States. The other is a Legislative Democracy which has its origin in Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, here termed the Federal United States. Very few people, when they see some “law” passed by Congress, ask themselves, “Which nation was Congress working for when it passed this or that so-called law?” Or, few ask, “Does this particular law apply to the Continental citizenry of the Republic, or does this particular law apply only to residents of the District of Columbia and other named enclaves, or territories, of the Democracy called the Federal United States?”

Since these questions are seldom asked by the uninformed citizenry of the Republic, it was an open invitation for “cunning” political leadership to seek more power and authority over the entire citizenry of the Republic through the medium of “legalese.” Congress deliberately failed in its duty to provide a medium of exchange for the citizenry of the Republic, in harmony with its Constitutional mandate. Instead, it created an abundance of commercial credit money for the Legislative Democracy, where it was not bound by Constitutional limitations. Then, after having created an emergency situation, and a tremendous depression in the Republic, Congress used its emergency authority to remove the remaining substance (gold and silver) from the medium of exchange belonging to the Republic, and made the negotiable instrument paper of the Legislative Democracy (Federal United States) a legal tender for Continental United States citizenry to use in the discharge of debts.

At the same time, Congress granted the entire citizenry of the two nations the “benefit” of limited liability in the discharge of all debts by telling the citizenry that the gold and silver coins of the Republic were out of date and cumbersome. The citizens were told that gold and silver (substance) was no longer needed to pay their debts, that they were now “privileged” to discharge debt with this more “convenient” currency, issued by the Federal United States. Consequently, everyone was forced to “go modern,” and to turn in their gold as a patriotic gesture. The entire news media complex went along with the scam and declared it to be a forward step for our democracy, no longer referring to America as a Republic.

From that time on, it was a falling light for the Republic of 1776, and a rising light for Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal Democracy, which overcame the depression, which was caused by a created shortage of real money. There was created an abundance of debt paper money, so-called, in the form of interest-bearing negotiable instrument paper called Federal Reserve Notes, and other forms of paperwork credit instruments.

Since all contracts since Roosevelt’s time have the colorable consideration of Federal Reserve Notes, instead of a genuine consideration of silver and gold coin, all contracts are colorable contracts, and not genuine contracts. [According to Black’s Law Dictionary (1990), colorable means “That which is in appearance only, and not in reality, what it purports to be, hence counterfeit, feigned, having the appearance of truth.”]

Consequently, a new colorable jurisdiction, called a statutory jurisdiction, had to be created to enforce the contracts. Soon the term colorable contract was changed to the term commercial agreement to fit circumstances of the new statutory jurisdiction, which is legislative, rather than judicial, in nature. This jurisdiction enforces commercial agreements upon implied consent, rather than full knowledge, as it is with the enforcement of contracts under the Common Law.

All of our courts today sit as legislative Tribunals, and the so-called “statutes” of legislative bodies being enforced in these Legislative Tribunals are not “statutes” passed by the legislative branch of our three-branch Republic, but as “commercial obligations” to the Federal United States for anyone in the Federal United States or in the Continental United States who has used the equitable currency of the Federal United States and who has accepted the “benefit,” or “privilege,” of discharging his debts with the limited liability “benefit” offered to him by the Federal United States … EXCEPT those who availed themselves of the remedy within this commercial system of law, which remedy is today found in Book 1 of the Uniform Commercial Code at Section 207.

When used in conjunction with one’s signature, a stamp stating “Without Prejudice U.C.C. 1-207″ is sufficient to indicate to the magistrate of any of our present Legislative Tribunals (called “courts”) that the signer of the document has reserved his Common Law right. He is not to be bound to the statute, or commercial obligation, of any commercial agreement that he did not enter knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally, as would be the case in any Common Law contract.

Furthermore, pursuant to U.C.C. 1-103, the statute, being enforced as a commercial obligation of a commercial agreement, must now be construed in harmony with the old Common Law of America, where the tribunal/court must rule that the statute does not apply to the individual who is wise enough and informed enough to exercise the remedy provided in this new system of law. He retains his former status in the Republic and fully enjoys his unalienable rights, guaranteed to him by the Constitution of the Republic, while those about him “curse the darkness” of Commercial Law government, lacking the truth needed to free themselves from a slave status under the Federal United States, even while inhabiting territory foreign to its territorial venue.

Editor’s note: the following excerpts are from letters in which Mr. Freeman further clarifies the REMEDY, as given to us in UCC 1-207, and the distinctions between Public Policy and Public Law:

Dear:

“There is an important “right” available to you. The name of the right is “Allocution”. It is presumed to have been waived if it is not requested! The purpose in demanding it is to preserve the “legal issues” brought up in the case, and overruled by the trial court. Otherwise, one’s appeal from a criminal conviction to a higher Court will only be a review of the “Fact Issues” decided in the lower Court, the Law Issues of the case are presumed to have been waived by the accused, unless those issues have been preserved though the right of “allocution.”

There is more that can follow one’s exercise of that right, and I will cover that, but first, let me explain what allocution is.

Once the Court, or a Jury, has found you guilty of disobedience to a commercial statute demanding, or prohibiting, performance in a specified manner, you, the accused, have the right of “Allocution”, which right, consists of having the Court (Judge) ask you on the record of the case (be sure that the Court Reporter is including this in the case transcript) “Is there any reason why this Court should not sentence you at this time?”

Being asked that question by the Court, in the Court Record is all there is to your right of Allocution, but a proper response upon the Court Record by the accused shows that same has not waived dispute upon the legal issues of the case, which were overruled by the trial Court, and now those issues may be brought up on appeal. The proper response of the accused upon being confronted with this question from the Judge, which allocution requires of him, is “Your Honor, the accused, in this criminal case, coming as it does from a colorable jurisdiction over his person and property, does object to being sentenced by this court at this time, because conviction in this case has been base upon The Facts of the case, while the Law Issues are still in dispute – namely – the Courts’ Colorable Jurisdiction in this Criminal charge, which lacks the essence of a substantial claim by a damaged party.”

At this point, your right of Allocution has preserved for you your right to bring Law Issues into your Appeal. Now, I will bring to your attention an additional benefit of exercising your right of Allocution, which I alluded to earlier in this letter: After you have placed the above response to the Judge’s question in the record, I would suggest that you continue on in the following manner: “Your Honor, the accused in this case would like to put this Court ON NOTICE, that if it DOES pronounce sentence at this time, over the OBJECTIONS of the accused, that the accused will formulate his objection, before a higher Court, IN THE NATURE OF A WRIT OF ERROR (see Supervisory Control in Black’s 5th Law Dictionary).”

The reason for the remark above is that the Court will tell you that WRITS OF ERROR have been done away with in modern Courts. In that situation, point out to the Judge that you do NOT intend to file a GENUINE WRIT OF ERROR, which is not recognized in colorable Jurisdictions, but that you stated on the record of the court that your OBJECTION to being sentenced at this time on FACT ISSUES while the LAW ISSUES of the case are still in dispute would be: IN THE NATURE OF A WRIT OF ERROR which is a Colorable Objection recognized under the name of Supervisory Control in Black’s 5th.

The advantage of an objection in the nature of a writ of error is that the Judge (not you) must bring forth the Transcript, or Record, of the case to the higher panel of Judges, and, the burden of proof is upon that Judge to show that the Jurisdiction that he exercised over your person and property existed AS A FACT OF LAW, and further, he must show the legal basis for EACH RULING ON ISSUES OF LAW that the Transcript shows that an objection thereto was made by the accused.

Now you know the benefit of stating your objection in the nature of a Writ of Error, over making an appeal, wherein the expense of bringing forth the transcript is on you, as well as, the burden of proof on all the law issues in dispute.”

Sincerely,
Howard Freeman

Dear:

“What has public policy to do with Commercial Law? To grasp that you must understand that the US Constitution being based upon the Common Law and the Common Law being based upon substance (silver & gold) made it impossible for Congress when working for the 3-branch government created by the Union of States to borrow anything but silver or gold for what I will call the Continental United States , but Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution gave the same Congress exclusive rule of the District of Columbia and other territories and enclaves mentioned in Clause 17. This entity I will call for our purposes here Federal United States. With that exclusive rule of that legislative democracy, called here Federal United States, Congress was able to borrow non-substance (bank credit) from International Banking Houses in the name of Federal United States which loans began in Civil War times and continues today to the point that the paper debt exceeds 3 Trillion in loans of bank credit. Federal United States was long ago a bankrupt nation so it no longer legislated “public law” pursuant to the interests of the people it served, but since 1938 it legislates “public policy” in the interests of the nation’s creditors. It is not in the interest of the people for Congress to give billions to Russia or Israel so that becomes “public policy” in the interest of the nation’s creditors. Now the Commercial Code comes into play when the Congress of the bankrupt Federal United States, in its duty to pass public policy statutes in the interest of the creditors of Federal United States, failed in its duty to coin gold or silver as a medium of exchange for Continental United States creating a depression therein, through a shortage of real money (genuine dollars). Then Franklin Roosevelt declared gold a barbaric metal, and with emergency powers given to him, brought America “up to date” by making colorable Federal Reserve Notes legal tender throughout Continental United States. Since colorable dollars, based upon the debt obligations of Federal United States, are now employed as a medium of exchange for Continental United States through the neglect of Congress in its duty to Continental United States, and the so called “blessings” of executive orders of FDR under his emergency powers, Continental United States is in a contract relationship with Federal United States and the debts of Federal United States are now equally, the debts of Continental United States and all of the inhabitants thereof UNLESS the inhabitants thereof in doing business in colorable dollars (commercial paper) reserve their Common Law Rights under the REMEDY provided for them in that system of Commercial Law called: The Uniform Commercial Code. I hope this brief summary of events answers your questions.

Most cordially yours,
Howard Freeman.

ADDENDUM

U.C.C. 1-207:4 Sufficiency of reservation.

Any expression indicating any intention to preserve rights is sufficient, such as “without prejudice,” “under protest,” “under reservation,” or “with reservation of all our rights.”

The Code states an “explicit” reservation must be made. “Explicit” undoubtedly is used in place of “express” to indicate that the reservation must not only be “express” but it must also be “clear” that such a reservation was intended.

The term “explicit” as used in U.C.C. 1-207 means “that which is so clearly stated or distinctively set forth that there is no doubt as to its meaning.” ….

U.C.C. 1-207:7 Effect of reservation of rights.
The making of a valid reservation of rights preserves whatever rights the person then possesses and prevents the loss of such right by application of concepts of waiver or estoppel ….

U.C.C. 1-207:9 Failure to make reservation.
When a waivable right or claim is involved, the failure to make a reservation thereof causes a loss of the right and bars its assertion at a later date ….

U.C.C. 1-103:6 Common law.
The Code is “Complementary” to the common law which remains in force except where displaced by the Code ….

A statute should be construed in harmony with the common law unless there is a clear legislative intent to abrogate the common law…. “The Code cannot be read to preclude a common law action.”

EXAMPLE

Your Honor, my use of “Without Prejudice UCC 1-207″ above my signature on this document indicates that I have exercised the “Remedy” provided for me in the Uniform Commercial Code in Book 1 at Section 207, whereby I may reserve my Common Law right not to be compelled to perform under any contract, or agreement, that I have not entered into knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally. And, that reservation serves notice upon all administrative agencies of government — national, state and local — that I do not, and will not, accept the liability associated with the “compelled” benefit of any unrevealed commercial agreement.

The Three United States!
