The opioid crisis has killed thousands in the United States, and as more than 100 Americans die every day, opium poppy cultivation has hit a record high in Afghanistan in 2017. Coincidentally, President Donald Trump’s troop surge in Afghanistan has essentially been completed, boosting the number of service members on the ground from 11,000 to 14,000, the Pentagon said this week.

We’ve just completed a force flow into Afghanistan,” Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the Pentagon’s Joint Staff Director, said at a news conference. “The new number for Afghanistan is now approximately 14,000—might be a little above that, might be a little below that, as we flex according to the mission.”

Coinciding with the completion of the troop surge, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and Afghanistan’s Ministry of Counter Narcotics released a report claiming that the “area under opium poppy cultivation increased by 63% since 2016, reaching a new record high.”

$21 Trillion dollars is missing from the US government. That is $65,000 for every person in America. That is more than our entire national debt!

What’s going on? Where is the money? How could this happen? How much has really gone missing? What would happen if a corporation failed to pass an audit like this? Or a taxpayer?

This means the Fed and their member banks are transacting government money outside the law. So are the corporate contractors that run the payment systems. So are the Wall Street firms who are selling government securities without full disclosure. Would your banks continue to handle your bank account if you behaved like this? Would your investors continue to buy your securities if you behaved like this? Would your accountant be silent?

NASA to test ‘space lasers’ with latest launch (VIDEO)
An American aerospace firm is aiming to create 200 megabits per second (Mbps) connections in space using satellites equipped with lasers. The new satellites were launched on Sunday from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

If successful, this new tech could pave the way for networks of satellite-connected devices to send data, which will be useful for military, tech, and meteorological agencies, to and from space via laser connections.

The company, Orbital ATK, is sending its Cygnus spacecraft, complete with NanoRacks CubeSats satellites, to the International Space Station. NASA is hoping that the mission will highlight the importance of small sensor spacecraft to the future of space exploration.

There are two myths which are deeply imprinted in the minds of most US Americans which are extremely dangerous and which can result in a war with Russia.

The first myth is the myth of US military superiority.

The second myth is the myth of US invulnerability.

I believe that it is therefore crucial to debunk these myths before they end up costing us millions of lives and untold suffering.

Due to political correctness the corporate media is NOT reporting this story entirely honestly. As a result a crucial element in the death of a baby is being minimised. Indeed, it has almost been airbrushed out of the story.
In short, an 18-month-old girl was tortured and tormented for eight months before she was eventually murdered by her adoptive parents.
That’s bad enough but the critical factor here are the adoptive parents, who just so happen to be a homosexual couple. Most of the corporate media reports on this matter do not even mention this in their headlines.
Maybe this is to be expected when you treat homosexuality as somehow “normal”, But one has to wonder whether the baby would still be alive had been adopted by a normal heterosexual couple?
Of course in the New World Order such questions are taboo, and none in the corporate media will ask them — without putting their jobs on the line. In consequence so-called journalists will gloss over this story without asking serious questions about adoption by homosexual couples.
For example, do children reared by homosexuals suffer any ill-effects? Indeed have any studies been done?

Devin Kelley should never have been near that Texas church. He should have been in a lockup, after assaulting his wife many times and fracturing his infant stepson’s skull.

The press doesn’t appear to have noticed this, or if they have, they’ve declined to mention it, because, in their view, prison is some kind of illegitimate institution. It’s wrong, it shouldn’t exist. It’s “unfashionable” to demand tougher prison sentences for any street-level crime.

Five former presidents of the United States came together for a hurricane relief benefit, and their photo-op with musician Lady Gaga led to a surprising reaction—the Internet loved it! Not only did the public put politics aside, it also seems to have forgotten about all of the things these men have done to give them a very different title: War Criminal.

“Nothing more beautiful than everyone putting their differences aside to help humanity in the face of catastrophe. #OneAmericaAppeal,” Gaga wrote on Twitter.

‘The US Air Force is renovating Cold War-era launch pads as it prepares to put its strategic bombers on constant 24-hour alert to engage in potential nuclear conflict for the first time since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.

“The world is a dangerous place and we’ve got folks that are talking openly about use of nuclear weapons,” Air Force Chief of Staff General David Goldfein told US military website Defense One. “It’s no longer a bipolar world where it’s just us and the Soviet Union. We’ve got other players out there who have nuclear capability. It’s never been more important to make sure that we get this mission right.”

Goldfein said that the order to return the B-52 bombers to high-readiness has not yet been issued, but showed journalists the ongoing construction work at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.

Nine alert pads branching off from an 11,000-foot runway are being renovated, along with a nearby building that will house more than 100 crew members assigned to the B-52 bombers, which have been in service since the 1950s.’

How the 14th AmendmentEnslaved Us All Without a Shot Fired

Most Americans would agree that we, as a people, are treated
by our public servants — the judges, politicians, law
enforcement and bureaucrats who are paid their salaries by our
taxes — as if we were in complete bondage to them. When we joke
about being slaves to the Government, we don’t realize that we
are exactly correct, joke or not. In fact, all those 99% of
Americans who call themselves “U.S. citizens” are actually
subjects of the corporate United States Government — not the
sovereign states of the Union. The moment you uttered your first
cry on American soil, you became the chattel property of the
corporation known as the United States of America which, because
of the federal debt, handed title (Birth Certificate) to your
body and soul to the Federal Reserve Bank, to be held in the
archives of the Department of Health and Human Services.
As incredible as this sounds, it is sadly true. The next
question is: How did I automatically become subject to a
government, when I’m supposedly a free American? How did this
all come about, that I should be made to register myself, my
family, and all that I own; be made to obey oppressive laws;
and forfeit almost half of my earnings upon threat of jail? Only
those who are “subject” to a government can be made to do these
things. Free American Inhabitants are subject to no one but God,
and all the laws and responsibilities which that Divine
allegiance entails.
Which “United States” Do You Live In?
The answer to the above questions goes back to the American
Civil War. The war that was supposedly fought to free the slaves
from bondage actually did just the opposite — for all Americans
then and in the future. By enacting the 14th Amendment (which
technically is an Article, not a true amendment, but that’s a
topic for another discussion), a whole nation of newly freed
slaves and free-born white American Inhabitants became “citizens
of the United States”, i.e. of a federal government corporation,
at the stroke of a pen and without a shot being fired.
Because we Americans are a different breed and demand the
right to personal freedom, those who had planned decades ago to
enslave us (even if it took generations to do so) knew that, as
long as we were armed and willing to fight to maintain our
freedom, the only way to accomplish this enslavement was by
deception.
To proceed further, we must understand that there are two
“United States”. There is the “united States” (note the small
“u” in “united”) which describes the ideological and geographical
position of the sovereign states of America. An individual was
the voluntary inhabitant of the state in which he resided. If he
did not like the laws or practices of that state, he could simply
move to another state. Each state was sovereign to itself, and
could not be forced to accept the laws and practices of any other
state.
The “United States of America”, however, is the name of the
corporate entity (note the capital “U” in “United”) that exists
to carry out the functions delegated to it by the States for the
protection of the Union. This corporate entity’s jurisdiction is
supposed to be (according to the Constitution) confined to the
District of Columbia, the federal territories and the federal
enclaves. Enclaves are areas within a State’s boundaries which
are ceded to the Federal Government by the State Legislature.
Anyone can come under the direct jurisdiction of the
corporate United States in three ways: (1) by living in one of
its territories (Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, etc.),
(2) by living in the District of Columbia, or (3) simply by
choice. Back when America still had vast territories not-yet-
become states and several thousands of people lived in these
territories, these people had no rights protected by state
sovereignty. They lived under federal jurisdiction, which was
the reason why people living in territories were so anxious to
achieve statehood. The President could order federal troops into
any territory and enact any edicts he wanted. Once a territory
became a state, it had sovereignty and, from that point on, the
state’s rights prevailed.
So, if you don’t live in a territory or enclave, and you
don’t live in the District of Columbia, then the only way you
could have fallen under the jurisdiction of the United States
Government is by choice. But neither I, nor anyone I know,
voluntarily or knowingly surrendered their personal sovereignty
to the Government, which means that it (our sovereignty) was
taken from us by deception.
This deception, which took place in the year 1868, is what
this article will explain — how our ancestors were tricked and
coerced into giving up their rights (and ours!) to the
jurisdiction of the Federal Government.
Civil War Sets the Stage for Takeover
The Constitution for the United States of America specifies
in the opening paragraph that the Constitution was written for
the newly formed corporation, not for us, the People living in
America. Our rights come from God and are inalienable. They do
not come from a piece of paper. And, because the Federal
Government exists only on paper — a man-created entity — it can
also be dismantled anytime We the People decide it has become a
threat to our inalienable God-given rights of sovereignty.
The Constitution is the contract between those who
administer the Government’s affairs and the People of the united
States. In essence, it states that the People will give the
Government certain powers necessary to administer the defense of
the States, and control the commerce into the States from foreign
countries. In exchange, the State governments (not the
individual people — direct taxation by the Federal Government is
unconstitutional) would provide the Federal Government the money
it needs to operate. The Federal Government had limited powers;
in fact, the Bill of Rights was hotly debated at the time of its
passage because there were several people who wisely cautioned
that the Bill of Rights would eventually be construed as rights
endowed by the Constitution, not protected by it (which is
exactly what has happened).
How often do you hear patriots mistakenly vow to defend
“their Constitutional rights”? This thinking reflects the
decades of public school brainwashing to which we have all been
subjected. We need to correct each other and understand that our
rights are God-given, not constitutional.
So, how does the Civil War enter into this present-day power
struggle between the Federal Government and Us the People?
Slavery was not the true underlying reason for the war. It was
an emotional, social issue that was used as an excuse to incite
people to go to war, people who did not realize that foreign
agencies were responsible for that conflict. International
bankers, seeing the slavery issue as an opportunity not only to
divide the country, but make millions of dollars as well, fanned
the flames of debate until, under cover of the most bloody war in
the history of the world, they were to accomplish that very
objective — the complete takeover of America. They almost
succeeded years sooner, except for the intervention of one man —
President Abraham Lincoln.
“Honest Abe” Knew the Truth
President Lincoln was against slavery, but he understood
that it was wrong to force the southern States to give up slavery
— to force Federal jurisdiction over the issue of States’
Rights. Four of the southern States were already considering the
abolition of slavery, but they couldn’t just abandon it
overnight. It would take time. After all, their whole economy
was built upon slavery; a sudden disruption would bankrupt the
South. Lincoln understood this. But, it wasn’t until Lincoln
got into office that he began to see the whole picture. He
learned that the war was begun by the International Bankers as a
means of dividing the country in two, forcing both sides to
borrow heavily from the Bankers to pay war debts. Then, when
failing to repay those loans, the divided America would be forced
into bankruptcy. The Rothschilds and other bankers could then
simply foreclose on the corporations known as the United States
of America and the Confederate States of America. President
Lincoln knew he had to keep the nation together at all costs —
including war.
THE FINAL AX FALLS

After the bill was passed over Johnson’s veto, and there was no general hue and cry from the public, Congress then proceeded with the next step — the 14th Amendment. In order to understand the ramifications of this heinous act of Congress, it must be analyzed section-by-section: ARTICLE XIV. Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. [emphasis added] In the very first line, the amendment states that all persons born (all babies from this point on) or naturalized (the newly freed slaves who were then just inhabitants of America) are now citizens of the United States (the Federal Government) and of the State (the State Government) where they lived. From the Declaration of Independence on, all people in America who lived here were Americans, residing in a particular geographical state, and free to move from state to state, or even to another country. The Federal Government, according to the Constitution, is a corporate fiction that does the bidding of the body of collective states called Congress. At this time, the state governments had similar limited jurisdiction over their inhabitants, as did the federal government. The state government’s primary function was to act as a collective voice of all its inhabitants to convey their wishes to Congress. Congress controlled the federal government. The rule of Common Law, which was the law of the land at that time, was carried out exclusively by the County Sheriff — the Common Law concept of Posse Comitatus. Neither the State nor the Federal Government had any jurisdiction in the County, where Home Rule was the law. Only by permission or invitation by the Sheriff could either of the other two governments step foot in his County. The Civil Rights Bill, in one bold act, forced Federal Government jurisdiction into the sanctity of State rule. But Posse Comitatus still reigned in each state, and the conspirators found the way to usurp jurisdiction here through the 14th Amendment. Citizens, Subjects = Slaves In order for any government to grab power and maintain it, it must have “subjects” or “citizens”. According to Black’s Law Dictionary (Sixth Edition), “Citizens are members of a political community who, in their associated capacity, have established or submitted themselves to the dominion of a government for the promotion of their general welfare and the protection of their individual as well as collective rights. (Herriot v. City of Seattle, 81 Wash.2d. 48, 500 P.2d. 101, 109)” So, by declaration of the 14th Amendment, all persons born from that point forward, and all naturalized people, had just become citizens (i.e. subjects) of the United States Government, obviously without their knowledge (babies) or understanding (the Negroes). The Federal Government had just reached past the jurisdictional boundaries of the state and county lines and claimed all its babies and all Negroes. In Section 2, it then states that only males 21 years of age who are citizens of the United States may be allowed to vote in Federal and State elections. That means that only those men who willingly claimed U.S. citizenship on voter’s registration cards (though they didn’t realize the implications) were also brought in as subjects of the Federal Government. (The Federal Government’s power and control are growing fast!) However, it stipulated that those who had participated in rebellion (the South) were excluded. The Back Door At this point, any intelligent person can figure out that the Conspirators who were using this Amendment to claim all Americans as its citizens — by deception — were obviously performing an illegal and unconstitutional act. The conspirators in Congress (and every Congressman knew what was being perpetrated, and either promoted it or simply pretended not to notice) established a “loophole” for themselves and to cover themselves in case people began to catch on. This loophole was 15 Statutes at Large, Chapter 249 (Section 1), enacted July 27, 1868, one day before the 14th Amendment was declared “ratified”. You will not see this statute published anywhere except in very old books. The Conspirators do not want their “citizens” to know it exists, and it has never been repealed. The text follows: CHAP. CCXLIX. — An Act concerning the Rights of American Citizens in foreign States Whereas the right of expatriation is a natural and inherent right of all people, indispensable to the enjoyment of the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and whereas in the recognition of this principle this government has freely received emigrants from all nations, and invested them with the rights of citizenship; and whereas it is claimed that such American citizens, with their descendants, are subjects of foreign states, owing allegiance to the governments thereof; and whereas it is necessary to the maintenance of public peace that this claim of foreign allegiance should be promptly and finally disavowed: Therefore, Be it enacted by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That any declaration, instruction, opinion, order, or decision of any officers of this government which denies, restricts, impairs, or questions the right of expatriation, is hereby declared inconsistent with the fundamental principles of this government. On the surface, this seems to guarantee that “foreigners” who live in the borders of America cannot be forced to claim citizenship. But, what this also says is that anyone who wishes to expatriate (i.e. renounce their U.S. citizenship) may do so, by inherent right, and no one can deny him this right. The Conspirators knew that, the “letter of the law” having been satisfied with this exemption from compelled performance (having U.S. citizenship thrust upon us), they could then hide the exemption from general view, start promoting the “benefits” of U.S. citizenship in the media (and later, in public schools) and begin setting up all of us for manipulation to obey millions of codes, statutes, and laws; exacting fines for breaking these laws; and extracting license fees and taxes upon penalty of seizure or jail. Free American Inhabitants are not subject to the Federal Government by virtue of their not claiming U.S. citizenship. Those of us who have renounced our U.S. citizenship and declared our status as American Inhabitants, using 15 Statutes at Large as the legal foundation for this Declaration of Status, are the only ones living in the united States of America. The rest of America (U.S. citizens — about 99%) are living in a 4th dimension, i.e. in a fictitious corporation called the United States of America. As far as America is concerned (except that 1%), there’s nobody home! Slavery by Election We can see that, in the 14th Amendment, those Southerners who had participated in the Civil War were excluded from this “benefit” (U.S. Citizenship) on purpose — to punish them so severely with sanctions, punishing fines and terrorism from the newly formed Freeman’s Bureau, that a few years later, the Southerners would be grateful for any consideration the Federal Government would extend to them. When the opportunity was ripe, such a consideration was enacted — the 15th Amendment. It reads (in part): Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. By this gracious gesture, Congress extended full forgiveness to the South, and restored their right to vote (at that time, considered to be the most sacred right of an American). At the next national election after the enactment of this amendment, there was the largest turnout of voters this nation had ever seen. The South wanted desperately to be restored to the Union and heal their wounds. When they heard that, in order to vote, they had to swear allegiance to the United States of America and thus become a “citizen of the United States” (as required by the 14th Amendment), they did so willingly and without a clue as to what they had just done to themselves and to their posterity. With the stroke of a pen, the 14th Amendment, and the subsequent 15th Amendment, had just enslaved an entire nation without a shot being fired. The “Forgotten” Clause Obviously, this treacherous act by Congress was enough to have all of them hanged as traitors; but, there was one more act of treachery that has been overlooked by most people. Section 4 of the 14th Amendment reads: The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void. [emphasis added] At that time, a hue and cry was raised concerning Lincoln’s promises to “forgive” the South’s debts as part of Reconstruction, with good reason. But mainly overlooked was the first part of Section 4, which says that the debts incurred by the U.S. government were not to be questioned, that the enforcers whom the Government hired to quell insurrection (today, the CIA, FBI, BATF, DEA, U.S. Marshals, etc.) would be paid by the Government. And where was the Government’s money to come from? Answer: Its newly acquired subjects — U.S. citizens. The States had just signed into constitutional amendment the permission for the Federal Government to hire thugs and thieves to control us, to pay them with our own money, and that no question could be brought to court about the constitutionality of these actions. This is why any effort to bring a suit against the Government about the Federal debt will never be entertained by the Supreme Court! A Dangerous Game In Europe, Africa and other places in the world, a despot simply took over a country by waging war. Here in America, however, as long as Americans were armed and prepared for hostile armed takeover, the Conspirators knew that a different technique — a grand deception by manipulation of the laws, the courts, the schools, the media — must be employed to obtain the same results. They waged war on us long ago, but we’ve been too naive to see it. There are many who are waking up now, but they don’t see the whole picture. They think that if they reverse a certain portion of Government abuse, we can take our country back. Tax protestors (as IRS calls them) have perfectly correct reasons to point out that they are not required to file — but they forget they are still U.S. citizens (i.e. subjects). Home schoolers fight bravely for their right to protect their children against Government control — but they forget they are still U.S. citizens. Legal eagles have found many statutory “loopholes” to win a few battles in court — but they forget they are still U.S. citizens. Playing the “patriot game” without fully understanding the constitutional hold the Federal, State and local governments have over them is playing a dangerous game. They may win a few skirmishes in their battles with Government (the Government allows these “wins” to encourage us to continue wasting our energies in useless effort), but they will never win the war, and will only bring the wrath of Government down upon the head of yet another one of its subjects. For now, at least, the Government is respecting the status of American Inhabitants. We (your publisher L. C. Lyon and writer George Sibley) have not had any legal hassles from any Government entity, because we are no longer U.S. citizens. We are the same as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and all the other patriots were in their time — free American Inhabitants. Any U.S. citizen can give up this enslaving status at any time, but it must be done properly. If everyone in America were to take back their rights as free Americans again, through the revocation process, the Government would have no more subjects, and no more power! IT’S TIME TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK! [Minor grammatical and spelling edits were done to this essay by John E. Trumane.

It was the largest empire ever to have existed. And as the saying used to go, the sun never sets on the British Empire. At its height in 1922, the colonial power was lording it over a fifth of the world’s population and for many of them, the sun never rose again.

Under the policies of British colonialism, people around the globe were subjected to mass famines, atrocious conditions in concentration camps, and brutal massacres at the hands of imperialist troops. The Brits also played an integral role in the transatlantic slave trade.

Although the atrocities of the British Empire are well documented, the myth of the noble colonising power continued into recent decades.

Dear President Trump:
We are writing to you as national security experts, many who worked in the nuclear weapons, arms control, and nonproliferation and intelligence fields, to express our strong opposition to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA) and to ask that you withdraw the United States from this dangerous agreement as soon as possible.
We also call on your administration to declare to Congress next month that Iran has not been complying with this agreement and that it is not in the national security interests of the United States.

In the last few months, several competing political, economic and military sectors – linked to distinct ideological and ethnic groups – have clearly emerged at the centers of power.

We can identify some of the key competing and interlocking directorates of the power elite:

1. Free marketers, with the ubiquitous presence of the ‘Israel First’ crowd.

2. National capitalists, linked to rightwing ideologues.

3. Generals, linked to the national security and the Pentagon apparatus, as well as defense industry.

4. Business elites, linked to global capital.

This essay attempts to define the power wielders and evaluate their range of power and its impact.

The Economic Power Elite: Israel-Firsters and Wall Street CEO’s

‘Israel Firsters’ dominate the top economic and political positions within the Trump regime and, interestingly, are among the Administration’s most vociferous opponents. These include: the Federal Reserve Chairwoman, Janet Yellen, as well as her Vice-Chair, Stanley Fischer, an Israeli citizen and former (sic) Governor of the Bank of Israel.
