Financial Terrorism: The Deliberate Destruction of the Free Market

leave a comment »

I think it is now  very important to publish this talk on my blog. Gold and Silver are breaking out as I type. The dollar index is down and stocks are down. The so-called “recovery” looks to be just about over. The Federal Reserve has hinted at QE III (Quantitive Easing Round 3) and so the dollar is now in jeopardy. Quantitive Easing is just a fancy economist’s term for printing money. Just like every other commodity, when the supply of dollars increases, its value drops. You are going to see more inflation. Prices rise when the value of the dollar drops. The most important thing to understand, however, is that this is all by design. Americans need to understand this, because the SOB’s that are doing this are going to offer a solution. That solution will probably be a new dollar backed by some international currency that may or may not have a precious metal or basket of commodities backing it. Why an international currency? The world’s huge banking interests know that economic union is a precursor to political union. This is the same road map used in Europe. The common market in Europe preceded political union by 50 years and was built in the wake of the devastating destruction of WWII. They don’t intend to wait another 50 years. History tells us that these types of economic down-turns often lead to war.  We already have war, but the threat of an escalation is real. No one knows the future but the road signs ahead are troubling.

I hope you will watch the following 1994 presentation which reveals what seems to be trending right now:

Pastor Dan Fisher – Bringing Back the Black Robed Regiment

leave a comment »

Here is a video that illustrates just how upside-down the notion of “Separation of Church and State” is understood. It has been interpreted by our courts in a manner which infringes upon the 1st Amendment protection to the right to freely practice religion and the right to free speech. Of  course, “Separation of Church and State” was a notion in a letter from Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists expressing the fact that a wall of separation between church and state had been erected within the constitution in order to prevent the government from ESTABLISHING a state religion or giving preference to one denomination over another. The intent was not to prevent religious from functioning within the government nor to prevent preaching on civil matters. Afterall, how can any man of principle ignore civil matters? Is it not in civil matters where religion is lived; where faith grows feet?

What a history lesson, why did I not hear this in school? How do we get the Bible back in our schools, and heal our country. I feel it is time to stand up and return to being a Christian nation by honoring God, not removing God from our government. — A comment by youtuber MegaCrimeFighter

Replacing Medicaid With Real Charity

leave a comment »

Come hear Dr. Alieta Eck talk about replacing Medicaid with genuine charity. She and her husband operate a free clinic through their church that reaches some 400 or so patients a month. They take no government assistance.

It will become increasingly more important for neighbors to take up genuine charity as the financial condition of our communities, states and federal government continue to head south.

Paul Ryan has the record of an Interventionist, Neo-Conservative War Monger

with one comment

Apparently, Representative Ryan never met a War he didn’t like. He is on record in favor of all the foreign intervention of the Bush and Obama administrations. He approves of the president using our military and our sons and daughters as a personal play-toy.  Furthermore, he refuses to support measures which bring the president to accountability, or cut funding when executive powers are abused. Most disgustingly, he favors the policy of Congress passing the prerogative of war to the President, thereby shirking the constitutional duty of the Congress to declare war. I can think of no more cowardly attitude then one who votes in support of offensive war, yet lacks the courage to go on record and actually Declare a State of War. Is this the type of leadership Americans want?

Paul Ryan on International Intervention, War, and Presidential Offensive Force:

Kosovo and East Timor
Paul Ryan supported military activity in Kosovo and East Timor. In the 106th Congress he refused his consent to remove troops from the Kosovo conflict (HCR 82). Furthermore, he refused DEA Funding cuts that would have halted funding for military construction outside the U.S. and would have ended funding for military operations in Kosovo and East Timor, unless the funds were used to bring the troops home. In fairness, he voted in opposition to HCR 42, the original authorization for peacekeeping operations in Kosovo and voted twice to restrict the conflict to air operations by requiring congressional approval before ground forces could be deployed. Furthermore, he rufused consent to air operations, but the attacks were already ongoing at the time. It appears as though he went on record in opposition but refused to halt the operations once they began but also refused supplemental funding that could have expanded operations. He walked a fine line. Voting not to end the conflict and not to expand it.

In the 107th Congress, Paul Ryan approved War Authorization Against Iraq. This joint resolution (House Joint Resolution 114) authorized the president “to use the Armed Forces of the United States as he determines to be necessary and appropriate in order to — (1) defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq. and (2) enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq.” Furthermore, he approved Supplemental Spending for Iraq & Afghanistan. This was H.R. 3289 to appropriate $87.5 billion in supplemental fiscal 2004 spending for military operations and reconstruction in Iraq and Afghanistan. In the 110th he opposed the Iraq Troop Withdrawal. This bill, HR 2237,  was to withdraw U.S. troops and Defense Department contractors from Iraq.

Paul Ryan appears open to an Iran Military Operation. In the 109th Congress, he opposed an amendment to the 2007 Defense Appropriations Bill that sought to bar any funds to initiate military operations in Iran unless it is in accordance with Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, which delegates to Congress alone the power to declare war. Once again in the 110th Congress, he opposed an amendment to the 2008 Defense Appropriations Bill that would have required President Bush to get specific congressional authorization before engaging in military operations in Iran.

Rep Ryan opposed HCR 248 To Withdraw U.S. Soldiers From Afghanistan. This legislation (House Concurrent Resolution 248) would have directed the President to remove the U.S. Armed Forces from Afghanistan within 30 days of enactment, or by the end of the year if the President determined they cannot be safely removed sooner.

Rep Paul Ryan opposed Libya Troop Withdrawal. House Concurrent Resolution 51 would have directed President Obama, “pursuant to … the War Powers Resolution, to remove the United States Armed Forces from Libya.” He also opposed an amendment to prohibit the use of funds in the Defense Appropriations Bill to carry out military actions against Libya unless Congress declares war against Libya.

Paul Ryan: Budget Hawk? No. Internationalist? Yes.

leave a comment »

I found ten votes in the 112th Congress that illustrates that Paul Ryan is far from the “Budget Hawk” the corporate media would have you think he is.  His votes illustrate support for a party agenda that is not American and is not popular among his constituents. He votes to strengthen international institutions while attacking our Bill of Rights, blurring the separation of powers defined in the Constitution and hindering our economy.

Furthermore, these votes lead me to believe he is a Neo-Conservative International Interventionist reminiscent of the Bush regime:

Hon. Paul Ryan
WI 1st District
My Grade
1 Amendment to HR 1: Restrict United Nations Funding Internationalism
Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) offered an amendment to HR 1 (an appropriations bill) that would have prohibited any funding in the bill from being used to pay dues to the United Nations. The House rejected Broun’s amendment and so did Rep Paul Ryan. X
2 Patriot Act Extension (S 990) Attacks Bill of Rights
A four year extension of three separate provisions of the Patriot Act that were set to expire: The “Roving Wiretap” is a provision that allows your federal government to snoop on any number to phone and internet lines without specifying what lines will be tapped and what they expect to find. The “Financial Records” provision allows asset seizure during investigations. The “Lone Wolf” provision allows spying on non-citizens without a warrant. These provisions violate the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which requires that no warrants be issued “but upon probable cause” and that warrants must contain language “particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” Ryan approved these extensions. In essence, the Patriot Act’s provisions undermine the 4th Amendment by allowing Federal Law Enforcement to go on reckless “Fishing Expeditions”. X
3 HCR 51 “The Libya Troop Withdrawal” Separation of Powers
According to the Constitution, Congress holds the power to declare war. This power was watered-down with “The War Powers Act” many congresses ago. According to the War Powers Act, the President cannot engage the Armed Forces for more than 60 days without Congressional Approval. HCR 51 “The Libya Troop Withdrawal” sought to force our President to either seek approval or end the troop deployment in Syria. The Obama Administration consulted with the UN, the Arab League, and the African Union while it snubbed our Congress. The measure was rejected by congress and Hon. Paul Ryan. The war continues. X
4 Amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill Internationalism
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH.) offered an amendment to the defense appropriations bill that would have prohibited any funding in the bill from being used to wage war in Libya without a Congressional declaration of War. The House rejected the measure on July 8, 2011 and Paul Ryan voted in opposition. X
5 S. 365: The Debt Deal Attacks The Economy
Mr. Ryan approved the Debt Deal. This legislation (S. 365) provided for an immediate $400 billion increase in the national debt limit, while allowing the President to raise the ceiling an additional $500 billion unless Congress passed a resolution of disapproval. In his favor, he did follow this vote with a subsequent disapproval when the President attempted to grab more of your dollars. It is important to mention that this deal involved future cuts over 10 years but there is no constitutional process which could prevent future congresses from discarding those proposals. It was a typical face-saving, “toss-it-over-the-fence” measure. It guaranteed more spending at a time when the pressure to cut spending had never been more intense. X
6 H.R. 3080: South Korea Trade Agreement Internationalism
Apparently Paul Ryan doesn’t think NAFTA has done enough damage to our economy. He jumped all over the “South Korea Trade Agreement”. Another in a series of “free-trade agreements” intended to transfer the power to regulate trade (and eventually other powers too) to super-national arrangements. NAFTA is a prime example of such an arrangement. The House passed H.R. 3080. Mr. Ryan approved. X
7 H.R. 2055: Omnibus Appropriations package Attacks The Economy
Rep Ryan approved the Omnibus Appropriations package (H.R. 2055), which provided $915 billion in spending. Passage of this mammoth appropriations bill in light of the ongoing trillion-dollar annual deficits is fiscally irresponsible. How will Congress cut spending if they do not dissect these funding measures and handle them separately? X
8 H.R. 3521: Line-item Veto Separation of Powers
Mr. Ryan had no problem with approving a Line-item Veto (H.R. 3521) which would allow the President to rescind all or part of any dollar amount of funding for discretionary spending items in enacted appropriations bills. This bill dramatically and unilaterally enhances the power of the executive branch. Article I, Section 1 and Article I, Section 7, Clauses 2 and 3, of the U.S. Constitution vest Congress with all legislative powers. This bill attempts to shift legislative power away from Congress and to the President. It violates the constitutionally defined separation of powers. The Supreme Court already found a similar proposal unconstitutional during the Clinton Administration. Mr. Ryan should know that altering the Constitution requires an amendment process. A simple legislative act is insufficient. X
9 H.R. 3523: Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) Attacks Bill of Rights
Mr. Ryan approved the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). This bill (H.R. 3523) protects businesses from lawsuits regarding the sharing of their customers’ private information with the government. This is obviously an attempt to circumvent the 4th Amendments protection to be secure in your persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. After all, if a warrant were issued upon probable cause and supported under oath, these businesses would be protected from lawsuits based upon the fact that the data was subpoenaed by the court. This bill seeks to circumvent the court process and the protection clause is an attempt to remove an obstacle to participation by private business. X
10 H.R. 4310: The National Defense Authorization Act Attacks Bill of Rights
The National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 4310) is so sweeping that American citizens accused of being terrorists can be detained by the U.S. military and held indefinitely without habeas corpus and without even being tried and found guilty in a court of law. Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) offered an amendment to strike this language from the bill, but the House rejected Smith’s amendment and so did Rep Paul Ryan. X

From Major Jordan’s Diaries

with 3 comments

Many thanks to WhatReallyHappened.com for picking up my youtube video “From Major Jordan’s Diary” which is really an audio file with a few splash pages. Their post is here. And thanks also to Charleston Voice (Bill Rummel) for linking in as well. I loaded this audio because I consider it to be a first-hand historical account of a World War II event that is skimmed over in favor of the alluring accounts of true American Patriotic heroism on the battle field. Don’t get me wrong, I love those gripping tales and I highly recommend the “Band of Brothers Series” for those of you who also enjoy them.

Since this video was added to their news collating service I have had a steady uptick in hits on this video and thought it prudent to provide a link to the pdf and html formats of Major Jordan’s Diary. The pdf is provided by articbeacon.com and I link to it below. The html appears to be an extract from Nexus Magazine. For those of you who have heard the speech delivered by Major Jordan on my youtube channel and have followed this link for more information, see the reference links below.

 Many Thanks
to The Reality Zone for Capturing this Lecture so long ago.
to The John Birch Society Chapters in California for hosting this speaking engagement in 1963.
to G. Edward Griffin for his concise and professional narration and introductory comments.
to WhatReallyHappened.com for publicizing this important youtube video/audio track.
to “Karen A.” for transcribing the Book
to Bill Rummel whom I suspect had a great deal to do with advancing this story.
to Western Islands (A JBS Publishing Company) for Publishing the Diary after it went out of print the first time.

Honorable Mention:
Thanks fromthetrenchesworldreport who also pickedup this youtube video on their site in December 2014.

Another Step Toward an American Dictatorship: Re-Writing the Constitution Piecemeal

leave a comment »

The House of Representatives voted to re-write Article II Section 2 of the US Constitution last week.

S. 679  A bill to reduce the number of executive positions subject to Senate confirmation passed the house by a vote of 261-116 with 54 members abstaining. This bill passed the Senate by a vote of 79-20 with 1 member abstaining on June 29, 2011. It will now go to the President’s desk for signing into law.

He [The President] shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.
Article II Sec 2 US Constitution

The wording above seems to indicate that the heads of departments require Senate confirmation but lesser appointments may be designated to others by law. I find it rather interesting that this law goes into affect 60 days after signed into law and it has passed both houses 90 days prior to the next term of office of President. Obama must be licking his chops at a possible opportunity to take these new powers for a test drive.

The creation of The Department of Homeland Security and the subsequent re-organization of the executive branch has moved key appointees under the Director of Homeland Security. Among these appointees are the Treasurer of the United States, the deputy administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, the director of the Office for Domestic Preparedness, and the assistant administrator of FEMA. These appointees have traditionally been considered key appointees subject to “advice and consent”of the Senate. Apparently, this is no longer the case. There are also a veritable army of key management positions under the Department of Defense, Department of Agriculture and the Commerce Department exempted from confirmation.

In an attempt to streamline the appointment process so as to cure a backlog of appointments, the Congress has decided to abrogate its responsibility in another key area of government. One would think that a backlog of this nature is indicative of an ever increasingly bloated executive branch that needs to be reined in. Instead, the Congress has reduced itself so that the executive branch might grow larger. I am reminded of a quote in the Declaration of Independence:

The history of the present King of Great Britain  …
He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
