Exclusive: Oklahoma City Bombing Breakthrough, Part 2 of 2


Not So Fast, ATF

As noted in Part 1 of this 2-part series, in early 1995, Tulsa Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents were eagerly preparing for a highly anticipated raid on the radical right-wing enclave of Elohim City—and the arrest of the shadowy figure Andreas Strassmeir, aka “Andy the German.”

Then, suddenly those plans were dramatically and suddenly halted. The abrupt about-face was recorded in a Report of Investigation (ROI) for February 1995:

On February 22, 1995 this agent met with OHP [Oklahoma Highway Patrol] Trooper Ken Stafford [the pilot who had flown the AFT team on the February 7 aerial reconnaissance] to exchange certain information regarding this investigation. Trooper Stafford indicated that the FBI also had an ongoing investigation regarding Elohim City. (Emphasis added.)

Near panic gripped federal law enforcement agencies in Tulsa. An extraordinary meeting took place later that day between ATF RAC David Roberts and the local US Attorney, Steve Lewis. The meeting violated strict bureaucratic protocol whereby Lewis would normally not have deigned to meet with a lowly RAC, and would have met only with Roberts’ Dallas-based regional ATF boss.

The left-hand and the right-hand of federal law enforcement targeting Elohim City finally became aware of each others’ investigations, and Lewis’s meeting with Roberts had one immediate and three follow-up consequences:

—ATF terminated its investigation and the planned arrest of Strassmeir

—ATF terminated CI-183 (the Tulsa debutante) as a paid Confidential Informant.

—ATF terminated its investigation of White Aryan Resistance (and Elohim City).

—The FBI continued its investigation at Elohim City, unimpeded by the ATF.

(A planned visit to Elohim City by CI-183 for the week of March 5-11 did not take place, or, if it did, no records of the visit have been released).

In September 2001, six years after the bombing, David Roberts told CBS 60 Minutes II producer Mary Mapes in a not-for-record telephone call the following, never-before-public information:

the Oklahoma City bombers came out of Elohim City

the FBI had a snitch in the middle of the bombing conspiracy

the FBI took over sole investigation of Elohim City to protect its snitch.

This writer was working as a consultant to 60 Minutes II on September 8, 2001, and made notes of Mapes’s telephone call to an attorney representing Terry Nichols, the man who was charged and convicted as McVeigh’s partner in the Oklahoma City bombing. A planned visit with Roberts and his attorney in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, for September 12, 2001, did not take place due to the 9/11 attacks. Subsequent attempts to arrange an on-the-record interview with Roberts have been unsuccessful.

Saving Strassmeir’s Ass (and the FBI’s)

Two days after the bombing, a joint FBI-ATF team interviewed CI-183. It’s worth quoting the FBI report of this interview at some length, including intentional misspellings:

EC’s [Elohim City] Security Officer is STRASMEYER, an illegal alien from Germany who is a former West German Infantry Officer.

… STRASMEYER has talked frequently about direct action against the U.S. Government.) He is trained in weaponry and has discussed assassinations, bombings and mass shootings…

MEHAUN [Dennis Mahon, a long-time major figure in the national white supremacist movement and one-time FBI informant, currently serving time for a letter bomb in federal prison] has talked with CAROL [CI-183] about targeting federal installations for destruction through bombings, such as the IRS Building , the Tulsa Federal Building and the Oklahoma City Federal Building… [Note: CI-183 later said this text was wrong. Strassmeir the German had mentioned the three specific buildings, not Mahon. This would not be the first time that the FBI has burned a lesser important snitch to protect a more valuable one.

… MEHAUN and STRASMEYER has taken three trips to Oklahoma City in November, 1994, December, 1994, and February, 1995. CAROL only accompanied the group once, in December, 1994…

Note that last paragraph: here is the FBI reporting that Strassmeir and Mahon, his White-Aryan-Resistance buddy, took three reconnaissance trips to Oklahoma City in the months before the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building, a structure which one or both had reportedly spoken about destroying.

Elohim City is only 170 miles from Oklahoma City, so one might think that after the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building, with the above information in FBI files, Strassmeir would be, if not first, at least in the top-most group of the FBI’s list of persons of interest. In fact, reasonable minds might expect that Strassmeir qualified as a full-fledged “suspect.”

But that was not how the FBI saw it. There is compelling evidence the FBI actually aided and abetted Strassmeir’s return to Germany (in January 1996), without his having been even informally questioned, much less officially interviewed.

The US Counterterrorism Division made
it impossible for Strassmeir to return
to the US—so that he couldn’t be
questioned about his involvement?
Subsequent to Strassmeir’s return home, the FBI responded to some press 
interest by releasing two short, superficial trans-Atlantic telephone interviews with Strassmeir (conducted on April 30 and May 1, 1996). These interviews completely ignored the information in the April 21, 1995, joint FBI/ATF interview of CI-183, and should go down in history as one of the Bureau’s greatest investigative embarrassments.

Alternatively, the Bureau may see it as a great success: for twenty years, its snitch, Strassmeir, along with the Bureau itself, avoided any accountability for his role in an attack that murdered 168 American citizens.

With Strassmeir safely back in Germany, the US Department of State’s Counterterrorism Division issued a “Protective Intelligence Bulletin” making Strassmeir ineligible for a return to the US, in case someone like a congressional committee might want to interview him here.

Tulsa ATF called CI-183 back into snitch service

While agencies of the federal government covered their tracks and protected Strassmeir in the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing, ATF Tulsa obtained approval for the emergency reinstatement of CI-183 as a paid Confidential Informant “in order to aid in the Oklahoma City Bombing investigation… ”

In another document, Tulsa ATF justified its request to the Dallas Field Division for “Advance of Funds,” listing as “Suspect’s Name and Address”:

Elohim City

Robert Millar

Adair Co [County], OK.

In the block, “Explain/Justification” is this handwritten text:

This investigation involves the Bombing of the Murrah Bldg. in Oklahoma City, OK. It is suspected that members of Elohim City are involved either directly or indirectly through conspiracy. It is suspected that suspect #2 [the elusive John Doe 2] may be at the location. Funds will be used for CI-subsistence, expenses travel… “

The Tulsa ATF ROI for May 1995 states CI-183 traveled to Elohim City and stayed there for three days, and after this visit CI-183 was taken again to Oklahoma City for “debriefing” by ATF and FBI agents. (No records have surfaced from either FBI or ATF files of this debriefing.)

CI-183 reported that one Elohim City resident said, “There is a big secret out here,” and that other individuals there “were supportive of the bombing of the building in Oklahoma City.”

ATF Tulsa planned to send CI-183 back to Elohim City “in order to determine what the ‘big secret’ is and to attempt to identify suspect #2,” but this trip was canceled after CI-183 received warnings from an Elohim City resident that CI-183 “had better not go to Elohim City.”

These warnings were reinforced on May 24 when Tulsa ATF RAC David Roberts told CI-183’s handler that, “Robert Millar suspected CI-183 of being a confidential informant.” Most likely, Millar’s suspicion was based on information from his FBI handler in what proved to be a successful effort to head off an ATF investigation of Elohim City and its central role in OKBOMB.

With every anniversary of the Murrah Building bombing, the mainstream media run touching tributes to the victims and their families. But as memories of the tragedy fade, so does the possibility of peeling back the façade of a cover-up that has served to keep some “inconvenient” truths from the American public.

FBI admits using faked forensic science to put hundreds of innocent people behind bars (and have some sentenced to death)

From NaturalNews:

(NaturalNews) The FBI engaged in a massive science-based conspiracy to alter and distort forensic evidence for over two decades, the agency has now publicly admitted. "The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000," reports the Washington Post in a rare moment of truth-telling.

Astonishingly, 93% of the forensic scientists in the FBI's hair analysis unit "overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far," reports WashPost. To pull this off, they used "scientific jargon" to bamboozle juries, making their evidence sound convincing even though it was entirely invalid. As usual, this science-based fabrication of false evidence was offered by egotistical, self-assured FBI scientists who sounded convincing even though they were misleading the court with false testimony.

As The Guardian reports about one particularly disturbing trial:

At a key stage in the 1992 rape and burglary trial, an FBI agent named Wayne Oakes took the witness stand, describing himself to the jury as an expert in hair and textile fibers -- as would so many of the agency's trial witnesses, in condemning hundreds of people to long prison sentences.

Individual head or pubic hairs were distinctive, he told the court, to the extent that a well-trained specialist like himself could tell those belonging to one person from another. Oakes went on to bombard the jury with scientific jargon, referring to the medulla, the cortex and the cuticle of hair, likening the task of comparing individual strands to recognizing a specific person in a crowd.

"In 10 years, it's extremely rare I will have known hair samples from two different people I can't tell apart," the self-proclaimed expert bragged.

The FBI agent's conclusion in front of the jury was emphatic: "The hair found on the sheet exhibits all the same microscopic hair arranged in the same way as the characteristics present in the known hair from [Perrot]. I conclude that the hair was consistent with coming from the defendant," he told the court.

That testimony, based on a single hair, was so strong, so wrapped in the certainties of science, that it wiped out all doubts and inconsistencies in the prosecution's case -- indeed, it eviscerated the presumption of innocence.

Innocent victims of the FBI's quack science were sentenced to death

Thirty-two cases now under review involved defendants who were given the death penalty. There is little question that the FBI's faked hair analysis "science" has resulted in people being sentenced to death who were completely innocent.

The FBI, just like Monsanto and Merck, used fabricated science that resulted in innocent people being killed.

All this only emerged after the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) investigated the matter in cooperation with the Innocence Project. A total of 342 cases were reviewed for possible problems, and of those in which hair evidence was used against defendants in trials, over 95 percent involved the FBI giving flawed or distorted testimony that isn't supported by the facts.

As The Guardian writes:

Over the past few years, advanced understanding in the science of hair types has left hair analysis, as a forensic tool, in tatters. Today's consensus by real experts is more straightforward than ever: there is nothing that can credibly be said, by FBI-approved analysts or anyone else, about the frequency with which particular characteristics of hair are distributed in the human population.

In other words, microscopic analysis of hair -- the very analysis that put George Perrot and so many people behind bars -- is virtually worthless as a method of identifying someone."

What this means, essentially, is that virtually the entire FBI forensics team just "made $#!# up" to achieve convictions. And why wouldn't they? After all, the FBI is the same agency that also plots its own domestic terror hoaxes, recruits people to carry them out, stops them at the last minute and then claims it's "preventing domestic terrorism."

FACT: The FBI runs the majority of America's domestic terror plots

Yes, the FBI actually runs most of the terror plots in America. For the scoop on all that, check out these stories:

New York Times openly admits domestic terror plots masterminded by the FBI

FBI halts terror plot dreamed up by the FBI, then claims victory against terrorism

The FBI is amazingly good at halting terror plots dreamed up by the FBI

FBI 'entrapment' tactics questioned in web of phony terror plots and paid informants

FBI intercepts its own terrorist plot against US Capitol, Pentagon

Fake terror plots and faked evidence... what else is the FBI faking?

Upon learning how the FBI faked hair analysis "science" and faked domestic terror plots in order to halt them, a reasonable person can't help but ask the obvious question: "What else is the FBI faking?"

Is the FBI arresting and prosecuting completely innocent people who have done nothing wrong at all? Almost certainly so.

Did the FBI intentionally train its forensic scientists to lie on the witness stand in order to achieve more convictions against innocent people? Without a doubt. That has now been openly admitted in the hair analysis fiasco.

Does the FBI have the power to arrest, prosecute and even have executed a completely innocent individual? Without a doubt. They do.

On the other hand, the FBI also puts many genuinely dangerous, violent criminals behind bars. The agency also investigates and successfully prosecutes many white-collar criminals engaged in elaborate financial fraud schemes, extortion, kidnapping and so on. No one doubts the FBI achieves some important victories against real criminals, but the question must now be asked, "At what cost to the innocent?"

How many innocent people are rotting in prison today for every truly guilty person the FBI arrested and prosecuted?

And what else has the FBI gotten wrong in its forensic "science" department? If the FBI's own top forensic scientists were gullible and arrogant enough to believe that a single strand of hair can identify a single person like a fingerprint, then they don't sound very intelligent and "scientific" in the first place.

Do these people even know how to run and interpret genetic samples? Chemical samples? Biological samples? The competence of the entire operation must now be called into question, because if these people are so bad at science that they got the hair analysis question completely wrong, then surely they are also capable of failing in other areas of forensic analysis.

How many innocent people have been persecuted by fraudulent science?

It pains me to realize just how many innocent people have been persecuted over the years by fraudulent science. The arrogance of those pushing the certainty of "SCIENCE!" has always amazed me. Somehow, once people are trained in some small branch of science, they think they know everything.

Many people even ridiculously believe that science itself is incapable of producing errors. (They clearly don't understand how science really works.) Members of the general public -- most of whom are scientifically illiterate -- can easily be hoodwinked by an arrogant, seemingly self-confident science-based bamboozler. Just look at how the media is so easily tricked into supporting toxic vaccines that provably brain damage children in alarming numbers.

Scientific arrogance is a dangerous thing in any context: the FBI, the American Medical Association, medical journals, the American Dental Association and so on. Any time someone waves the banner of science and declares they have the exclusive monopoly on knowledge that no one else is capable of understanding, check the exits and prepare to flee. They're about to pull a fast one on you that might get you injured, killed, or even sentenced to death.

"As the scientific basis of hair analysis has crumbled, the scale of the judicial catastrophe caused by the FBI's enthusiastic use of it for decades until about 2000 has now begun to emerge more fully," reports The Guardian.

In a world where even the FBI fails to grasp the limits and faults of its own forensic science, no one is truly safe because the FBI simultaneously has the power to permanently take away your freedom and even have you killed by the state. The question in my mind right now is, "Why aren't those former FBI forensic scientists being arrested and tried for committing fraud?"

Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo de Santa Anna Blasts New Open Carry Law

Western Journalism – by B. Christopher Agee

The same Texas police chief who encouraged his constituents last year to alert authorities of any “gun enthusiasts” they might know is back in the news this week with another anti-gun rant.

After Texas legislators passed a new provision allowing citizens to openly carry firearms, Austin Sheriff Art Acevedo responded by posting a rambling, error-filled screed against the amendment. He titled his post, published Tuesday on Twitter, Open Season For Armed Criminals and Extremists.

In his attempt to convince Texans that expanded freedom for legal gun owners would somehow translate to more dangerous communities, Acevedo wrote that the legislation “is beyond belief and Aiken [sic] to open season for gang members, drug cartels, outlaw motor cycle [sic] gangs and any other criminal or extremist to defy the law with impunity, just brilliant [sic]!”

He went on to assert that if these criminals “had a seat at the policy writing [sic] table they couldn’t have come up with s [sic] better Amendment.”

Acevedo envisioned a nightmare scenario in which government buildings are overtaken by gun-toting criminals who were just waiting for an open carry amendment to pass in Texas.

“Here is a scenario,” he wrote, “next time groups face off in our Capital City at the Capitol, Klan with their hoods on, Panthers with their faces covered, ISIS sympathizers with their faces covered and just about any other extremist group, armed with firearms authorized by Open-Carry, law enforcement will have absolutely no authority to ensure the people who are armed as they wish……….why bother [sic] common sense has officially died and writing any further would be fruitless.”

While a few gun control activists supported Acevedo’s position, a clear majority of social media responses sought to clear up perceived misconceptions in his depiction of the law.

“The assumption that criminals aren’t already carrying is just stupid!” one user wrote. The sentiment was echoed by many others.

One supporter of the law indicated that criminals carried firearms long before it was legal, adding that now “honest people can, too.”

You were warned: Record 51 million immigrants in 8 years


Legal and illegal immigrants will hit a record high of 51 million in just eight years and eventually account for an astounding 82 percent of all population growth in America, according to new U.S. Census figures.

A report from the Center for Immigration Studies that analyzed the statistics said that by 2023, one in seven U.S. residents will be an immigrant, rising to one in five by 2060 when the immigrant population totals 78 million.

The report was provided to Secrets and released Wednesday evening.

The surge in immigrant population, both legal and illegal, threatens to slam into the presidential campaign as GOP candidates move to figure out what their position is and the president tries to use executive powers to exempt some 5 million illegals from deportation.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker disrupted the debate this week when he said that legal immigration also needs to be reformed to make sure Americans don't suffer by losing jobs to new citizens.

But even more, the CIS report said that the surge in mostly legal immigrants will have a huge impact on the nation and taxpayers.

RELATED: Poll: No, Obama didn't have the authority to grant amnesty

"These numbers have important implications for workers, schools, infrastructure, congestion and the environment," said Steven Camarota, the center's director of research. "They also may have implications for our ability to successfully assimilate and integrate immigrants. Yet there has been almost no national debate about bringing in so many people legally each year, which is the primary factor driving these numbers."

Those numbers are likely to shake up Washington's political debate over the 12 million illegals in America, the expected 70,000 expected to pour over the border this year and the 4.4 million legal immigrants on a State Department waiting list who have relatives or jobs in the U.S.

A key senator steering the immigration debate, Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions, has warned that higher numbers of immigrants will hurt the middle class. In a letter to the New York Times Saturday, he wrote, "It defies reason to argue that the record admission of new foreign workers has no negative effect on the wages of American workers, including the wages of past immigrants hoping to climb into the middle class. Why would many of the largest business groups in the United States spend millions lobbying for the admission of more foreign workers if such policies did not cut labor costs?"

On Friday, key business leaders including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a group associated with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg plan to pitch for more immigration. Their schedule is below.

The numbers, as seen in the highlights below, will also raise concerns that Washington is giving the keys to the nation to new immigrants:

The immigrant population will grow four times faster than the native born population, reaching 15.8 percent, or 57 million, of the nation's population in 2030, 17.1 percent, or 65 million, in 2040, and 18.8 percent, or 78 million, in 2060.

• Net immigration this year will be 1.24 million; green cards about 1.1 million.

• Immigrants and their descendants "will account for the overwhelming share of population growth," said the Center in projecting growth. They will account for 75.5 percent from 2010-2050 and 82 percent from 2010-2060.

• Census Bureau projects that in 2023 the nation's immigrant population, legal and illegal, will reach 14.8 percent of the total U.S. population, the highest share ever recorded.

One Last Look At The Real Economy Before It Implodes - Part 6 - Solutions

This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at

All problems, all crises, have at least one solution, if not many solutions. There is no such thing as an unwinnable scenario. Some may not be smart enough or courageous enough to see it, but the solution is always there, waiting to be discovered. The only fight that cannot be won is the fight in which the enemy makes all the rules and we foolishly abide by those rules. Life is not a game of chess, and a man can choose to be more than a pawn anytime he has the guts to do so.

In the past, I have likened the liberty movement to a rebellion against not just tyrants but the game itself - a group of people willing to walk away from the chess board and make their own rules. I stand by that assertion. However, simply walking away is not enough; we must also be willing to take actions that will destroy the game entirely.

In order to accomplish this task, any rebellion against corruption of power must be self-critical - more self-critical of its own weaknesses than opposing propagandists could ever be. Most of our problems as a society are being caused by a relatively small number of elitists, but we will never be able to undo these problems without understanding our weaknesses as much as the enemy’s weaknesses. In this final installment of my six-part series, I will talk about REAL solutions to the inevitable economic implosion in front of us, but I will also discuss the shortcomings of the liberty movement as an obstacle to the success of those solutions.

Perhaps the most detrimental of weaknesses within the Liberty Movement is a propensity of some to demand action by others before they take action themselves. Not all solutions require a synchronized mass movement led by top-down leadership. Often the best solutions are implemented by individuals and small groups within the local sphere. One man alone may not be able to change the entire world, but each individual can change the immediate world around him in smaller ways each day. Activists need to stop concerning themselves with what everyone else is doing and worry more about what THEY are doing to derail tyranny.

As noted in Part 5 of this series, segments of the liberty movement have fallen into a trap of biased assumption, namely a gullible embrace of the false East/West paradigm. I find it a little sad at times when I come across freedom activists who worship the footsteps of Henry Kissinger/International Monetary Fund puppet Vladimir Putin, or those who cheer for a globalist petri dish like China, all because they hate American imperialism so much they have decided out of reactionary fervor to cheerlead for the “lesser of two evils.” There is no difference between those who buy into the false East/West paradigm and those who buy into the false Left/Right political paradigm. There is no “good guy” in the world of geopolitical maneuvering. East or West, it is all irrelevant primarily because both sides serve the same international interests. Those who refuse to recognize this fact will find themselves utterly incompetent in terms of presenting practical solutions. One cannot defeat the game if one plays by the unfair rules of the game.

Another issue within the liberty movement is an inability by some to consider where the globalist ideal will actually lead. I know very well that there are 1,001 theories out there as to what the globalists actually want to achieve, which is why I personally look at the evidence at hand. The best available evidence is the evidence the elites openly ADMIT to, as they are apt to do in random fits of arrogance. It is important to understand that the elites often cannot help themselves and are desperate to boast of their activities before said activities are a forgone conclusion. Some analysts in recent history have presented undeniable admission by the elites, yet some activists still bicker about the enemy’s intent.

Whether it be the surprising words of insiders like Carroll Quigley, or the in-depth investigations of Antony Sutton, or the quotable quotes of frothing Fabian socialists, there is indeed a distinct strategy in play and this strategy is hidden in plain sight; the strategy of order out of chaos. And in terms of economics, there is an openly admitted goal, namely the integration of national currencies into a single global basket system (the special drawing rights, or SDR) controlled by the IMF and the Bank for International Settlements. I do not “believe” this is the goal; I KNOW this is the goal because the elites have for decades openly admitted to it in articles like “Get Ready For The Phoenix” published by the Rothschild-owned The Economist in 1988, which stated that a global currency system will be established under the auspices of the SDR by 2018.

Further information on the plan for global economic reset can be found in my article 'The Economic Endgame Explained.'

As I have shown with ample evidence throughout this series, the U.S. is on the verge of fiscal collapse, the dollar is already in the process of losing its world reserve status, the East is just as subservient to the reset plan as the West, and all of this is in preparation for an engineered disaster that will anesthetize the masses and prepare them for a shift toward total centralization.

Solutions require us to first grasp the fundamental nature of the greater threat. The cold, hard truth is that we as a movement for freedom are alone in the fight against globalization. There are no nation states to fall back on. There is no safe region on the planet to run away to. No white knight is coming to our rescue, and any embrace of the East will end only in co-option and defeat for liberty activists.

Believe it or not, though, I am still an optimist.

Knowing the scale of the threat gives clarity to our response. The movement stands alone, therefore, we must act without naively waiting for outside aid. We must take on an attitude of self-reliance.

The gravity of our situation also reveals to us what solutions actually have merit and which "solutions" present false hopes. I have seen numerous attempts at silver-bullet solutions in the movement over the past decade, from useless and intangible crypto-currencies to pyramid schemes designed to generate enough revenue to “sue” the Federal Reserve to blind armed marches on Washington planned by tactically retarded spokesmen to even more national election drives wasting even more money and more energy on candidates that may mean well but have no chance at defusing the economic time bomb already ticking away.

If the solution presented seems too easy, then it is probably nonsense. If someone is trying to sell you on the idea that no sacrifice, no struggle and no pain will be required to defeat globalism, then they are probably a con man trying to take something from you, whether it be your money or your common sense. Throughout history, the only real solutions to real problems — economic, social or political — require much pain and sacrifice. To change the world for the better, to fight for the truth, you must be willing to take risks up to an including risking your life, otherwise failure is guaranteed.

I do not believe in silver-bullet solutions. I do not believe there is a path of “least resistance.” The following methods are not academic. They are not philosophical. They will not appeal to the egghead libertarian portion of the movement, obsessed with theory rather than practice. And they will not appeal to self-proclaimed pacifists terrified of consequence and public perception. These are difficult actions requiring the will to endure. Every response listed here is a response I am applying in my own community, and I would not suggest a solution that I would not undertake myself.


If you want to undermine a concerted campaign of globalization, you must generate an opposing system. The opposite of tyranny is voluntarism. The opposite of collectivism is individualism. The opposite of globalism is localism.

Localism is economic organization based upon the methodology of self-reliance. While globalism forces people, cities, states and countries to become interdependent and unable to survive or prosper without each other, localism brings internal economic stability and removes dependency. If all communities were based on localism and independent fiscal strength, such redundancy would make widespread financial collapse a thing of the past.

While globalism is a top down model in which all decisions and power bottleneck at the peak of the pyramid, localism is a bottom up grass-roots initiative completely voluntary in nature. It is a methodology in which no one has power over the lives of others. That said, in order for localism to become a reality, these things must be accomplished first...

Real Preparedness

Self-reliance requires preparedness. There is no way around it. There is no such thing as crisis for those who are prepared. This means placing oneself in a position to provide the necessities of life so that one does not become a slave to need. Desperation often leads to moral relativism, and tyrants thrive on the moral weakness of a population. The more prepared an individual is, the more likely he is to fight back against despotism. The more prepared a community is, the less that community will feel inclined to request aid from those who might leverage such aid to oppress that community.

Preparedness can also in some cases include commodity investment by individuals and networks of individuals. While beans, bullets and Band-Aids are a priority, no one can deny the trend of foreign central banks stockpiling precious metals. And this stockpiling is clearly being done as a parallel measure to de-dollarization and the rise of the SDR basket. Metals are useful during windows of time just before collapse and after rebuilding has begun. They are a back-up. They are not a solution by themselves.

Real Production

Americans, in particular, will have to become producers again. And by production I mean useful items, useful skills and useful ideas, rather than frivolous attempts to sustain our avarice and empty materialism. Do you have the skills to produce food, clean water, shelter, warmth or energy? Are you able to invent or reimagine useful tools? Can you repair useful items? Do you have any experience with hard labor whatsoever? If you have answered in the negative to these questions, then you have a lot of work ahead of you to learn what you can in the time we have left. If you were to approach a group of people today and try to convince them of your value as a producer, what would you tell them? If you were thrust into an economic system in which barter was the primary means of wealth circulation, what would you trade that people would actually want? It is not about being "communally useful", but it is about supply and demand. What can you provide that is commonly in demand during faltering fiscal conditions?

This is not necessarily a call for Americans to revert back to 18th century living; it is a call for Americans to reclaim their heritage of entrepreneurship and adaptability. Globalism is merely feudal mercantilism wearing a modernized mask. It is globalism that is taking us back to the Dark Ages. And only localism can bring us into a future where technical achievement works for the common man rather than against him.

Real Community

Humans are social beings, but there are healthy forms of social organization, and unhealthy forms. At this stage in our society, collectivism has nearly decimated all vestiges of true community. Today, people have no clue who their neighbors are and most of them do not want to know. They have little to no interaction with their surroundings beyond superficial consumerism, and they see every other person around them as a competitor rather than an ally. Their idea of the “greater good” is a mentally deranged one. For them, the state is the root source of safety and communal coherency rather than the citizenry, and the people around them are not to be trusted.

Collectivism isolates people from each other to the point that their only means of feeling a connection with their fellow man is to do so through support of the establishment control grid. Participation in the totalitarian framework becomes a shallow replacement for participation in the world around us. By paying taxes, blindly supporting a war, giving to impotent international charities and voting once every two to four years in the farcical election process, we fool ourselves into believing we are a part of a “team” and that our civic duty has been fulfilled.

This terrible cycle can be broken, but it takes the effort of individuals going out and actively building relationships with others of like mind off the grid, so to speak. The liberty movement in particular should be forming groups and associations all over the country — not just to complain about the condition of the nation, but to take tangible actions. Mutual aid and barter groups, neighborhood watches and community preparedness teams, business ventures and engineering projects are all useful means of organization. These organizations will not form themselves. YOU must make them happen.

Real Self-Defense

As I discussed in my article 'If You Are Not Thinking Tactically You Are Not A Survivalist,' self-defense is an imperative that simply cannot be denied. This defense must include preparation for all enemies, foreign and domestic, and corrupt government is not excluded.

Economic collapse is very often followed by an increase in oppressive state power. And in the end, the establishment does not relinquish power over the citizenry unless it is forced to do so. Because of this reality, all honorable people should endeavor to become dangerous people, the more dangerous the better.

Voices expressing nihilism and futility in self defense are rarely constructive and should be ignored. Frankly, I find such cowardice stomach churning. There may very well come a day in which you will have to decide between freedom or absolute slavery. The size, strength and technological advancement of the enemy should have NO bearing whatsoever on the choice to fight for freedom; it should only have bearing on the applied strategy. Again, there is no problem without a solution if you have the courage to seek it. I hope that my joint project with Oath Keepers on how to build a working thermal evasion suit, due to be released in the next few weeks, will provide a good example as to why a technologically advanced tyranny is still vulnerable to a resourceful citizenry.

Real Grass-Roots Expansion

There has always been a lot of talk within the liberty movement of “nullification.” But ultimately, the philosophy of nullification is useless unless it comes from a position of strength. Federal overreach will not stop simply because a state happens to pass a bill denying the establishment full access. Here in Montana, medical marijuana legalization was crushed by the Feds despite state recognition. They simply marched in and arrested on drug charges anyone who dared open up shop, and the state did nothing to stop it. This is just one example of many in which nullification failed because people refused to accept that written law is meaningless unless it is backed by a vigilant public. Words on paper alone have never stopped the ascendance of totalitarians.

I suspect that as the overall economic implosion becomes more obvious to average people, there will be some counties and states that develop a desire for nullification on a grand scale. Americans will want resource implementation to provide wealth protection. And some states have more than enough resources to offset a national financial disaster, or at least stop that disaster at their borders. This would require the complete dissolution of numerous federal laws prohibiting resource development.

Such dissolution will not be successful unless counties and states have enough strong grass-roots communities in place to defend against federal intrusion — or at least make the idea so costly and prohibitive that they have second thoughts. Each smaller liberty group linking with other liberty groups can eventually create this kind of expansion. This is, of course, a best-case scenario. County and state organization should take a backseat to neighborhood and town organization until wider expansion becomes realistic. Strong counties and states begin with strong individuals, strong neighborhoods, and strong towns.

The collapse itself could easily be prolonged through a series of smaller catastrophes; or it could happen in a matter of days, depending on the trigger. For now, it appears that the U.S. is to be worn down to nothing as the IMF works closely with the BRICS to promote the SDR basket system. All nations will be negatively affected by this shift, but some will be hurt far more than others. War is certainly a possibility and would make for great cover as the IMF’s global reset is enacted. I can’t speak much to this kind of event other than to say that regardless of what happens, the IMF and the BIS will remain neutral, waiting until the conflict subsides so that they can step in as “heroes” ready to rebuild the world.

The liberty movement must also be ready to rebuild, and our ideal must be fully formed if we are to compete with the globalists. The most difficult reality of all is the reality that economic implosion is only the end of one struggle and the beginning of a new struggle. Our responsibility will not only be to fight against the machinations of elitists, but also to convince the world that the way of independence and freedom is more useful and preferable than the way of collectivist peasantry. Collapse is already upon us; now we must decide who will determine what happens next.

NASA Scientist Warns Prepare Food and Guns as We Approach 2017 !!


'He killed that guy and he didn’t have to’

From Vin Suprynowicz:

John Geer was killed a year and a half ago, but it wasn’t until a judge ordered officials in Fairfax County, Virginia, to release 11,000 pages of documents earlier this year, detailing their 17-month cover-up of the case, that details of his homicide by police became known.

Owner of a local kitchen design business in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, John B. Geer, 46, stood with his hands on top of the storm door of his Springfield, Va., townhouse in broad daylight and calmly told four Fairfax County police officers who had their handguns pointed at him: “I don’t want anybody to get shot. . . . And I don’t wanna get shot, ’cause I don’t want to die today,” reported Tom Jackman of the Washington Post on Jan. 31.

How and why Geer died that afternoon in August, 2013, after police responded to a reported domestic dispute at his home, remained a mystery for 17 months. But the documents released Jan. 30 “paint a vivid picture of a tense 44-minute showdown,” Jackman of the Post reports, after officers were called by Geer’s live-in partner of 24 years, Maura Harrington, another woman who has now learned what can happen if you seek police help with a non-violent domestic dispute.

The files also reveal for the first time why the Fairfax prosecutor shifted the case to the U.S. attorney’s office: an internal affairs investigation into a loud, angry “meltdown” suffered earlier by the shooter, officer Adam Torres, in the Fairfax County Courthouse. In that incident, five months before the Geer shooting, Torres repeatedly cursed an assistant county prosecutor who said there were problems with Torres’ investigation of a drunk-driving case, and stormed out of the courthouse.

But county police refused to make the internal affairs file of that incident available to Fairfax Commonwealth’s Attorney Raymond Morrogh, the Post reports. A frustrated Morrogh, unable to get anywhere with his own police department, then asked federal authorities to take the case.

Geer and Harrington, who had two daughters together, had had an argument over the phone that day, and Geer had begun throwing some of Harrington’s belongings onto their front yard. Harrington came home and dialed 911.

When Torres, 30, and Officer David Neil arrived, Geer immediately turned and walked inside the townhouse. As the officers approached, Geer held up a holstered handgun and, according to both officers, said, “I have a gun; I will use it if I need to because you guys have guns.”

Torres quickly ducked behind a tree 17 feet from the front door, pulled his gun and aimed at Geer. Neil pulled his gun but kept it pointed down. Geer soon placed his holstered gun on the ground, and no officer saw it again, according to their statements.

Five minutes later, Officer Rodney Barnes arrived. Barnes, 49, was a trained negotiator. He began to develop a rapport with Geer.


Neil McDonald, senior Washington, D.C. correspondent for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, picked up the account in his Feb. 18 column:

“Asked whether Geer had weapons, his common-law wife answered yes, but they were legally owned and secured. No, he hadn’t been drinking.

“Barnes asked Geer if he owned a pistol. Geer said yes, and fetched it. He held it up, holstered, for Barnes to see and set it aside, raising his hands again. He offered to let Barnes come into the house and retrieve the weapon.

“He asked for permission to scratch his nose, Barnes said, and did it slowly, then raised his hands again. He asked to reach into his pocket for his phone; Barnes asked him not to, and he obeyed.

“He said ‘I know if I reach down or drop my hands I can get shot,” Barnes told detectives later. “I said, hey, nobody’s going to shoot you. . . .”

But Geer pointed to one nearby officer in particular, Adam Torres, who kept raising his pistol from the “ready” position (pointed at Geer’s legs) to Geer’s chest.

“Please ask him not to point his gun at me,” Geer begged Barnes. Geer even offered to come out and be handcuffed if Torres and the other patrolmen would agree to move “way back.” Then he asked to scratch his nose again. Barnes consented. And Torres fired.

Geer, grabbing his wound, screamed in pain and stepped back, slamming his door closed.

“And I’m like, who the fuck shot?” Barnes told detectives later. “I kinda got a little pissed.”

Torres acknowledged it had been him. Then, unbidden, he told Barnes he’d had a fight over the phone with his wife just before arriving on the scene, McDonald of the CBC reports.

Police, unsure whether Geer was alive and armed, did not enter the house for 70 minutes, until a SWAT team arrived with an armored truck and battering ram, Jackman of the Post reports. “When the tactical officers entered, Geer was dead just inside the front door.”

Torres said he fired because Geer “brought both his hands down really quick near his waist.” But all the other officers at the scene agreed Geer’s “hands were up.”

Mark Lieberman, the Geer family lawyer, told reporters “It is hard to believe a Virginia state grand jury has not been presented with this information. . . . If this was a similar situation involving two ordinary citizens, there is little doubt that any individual who shot an unarmed man who was holding his hands up in the air and claiming that he did not want to hurt anyone would have been arrested and charged.”

“It’s not good,” Officer David Parker, who was crouching 15 feet behind Torres, told investigators. “He killed that guy and he didn’t have to.”


“The killing of John Geer should frighten everyone,” concludes Neil McDonald of the CBC.

Indeed. Our system of government does not envisage the populace supervised and occasionally culled with impunity by armor-clad para-military units not subject to the same laws as the rest of us.

If you or I draw a handgun and point it at someone, we’ve committed an indictable crime known as “assault.” If we then shoot an unarmed fellow-citizen who no reasonable person believes was seriously threatening bodily harm, prosecutors will generally assert we’ve committed a far more serious crime -– homicide, which a jury will be asked to label either manslaughter or murder, following an adversarial proceeding.

But police officers hardly ever face such public trials.

Should police be exempt from these laws? Well, there are certainly circumstances under which a police officer should not be charged, just as prosecutors have discretion not to charge you or me. If the person at whom we point our weapon is known to be a fleeing killer, for instance, who’s taken an innocent hostage and is threatening to kill again, any one of us might be found justified if we respond with armed force. (Though again, you or I, unlike police, would face strict scrutiny, would incur large legal fees, and would likely spend at least that night in jail -– please don’t try this at home.)

But our cops are killing a lot of unarmed fellow civilians these days, and a large part of the problem clearly is an us-versus-them mentality in which officers face no consequences for treating us -– even in our own homes -– as dangerous adversaries.

After John Geer was shot, police waited 70 minutes for him to bleed to death inside his house, until they could bring an armored vehicle to the scene to break down his door. In other words, they treated him — a man who attracted police attention by committing no “crime” but throwing some of his girlfriend’s clothes on his front lawn — as though he were some kind of deranged suicide bomber, a wailing terrorist with fifty pounds of explosive wrapped around his waist.

Police frequently say they have dangerous jobs. Their job that day — one for which they all volunteered, mind you — was to lessen the harm they’d already done by quickly entering John Geer’s home and offering him first aid, even at the risk of their own lives. But they didn’t do that, did they?

Disarm the populace, so we’d be even more at the mercy of these armed cowboys? I don’t think so. Not until the day when someone who has fatally shot a police officer says “I don’t care if no one else saw it; that cop made a furtive movement toward his waistband,” and prosecutors and investigating officers respond by saying, “Well, OK then, in that case we’re done here, Mr. Citizen; you’re free to go. Here, don’t forget to take your weapon with you, and your ammo. Nice shooting, pardner.”

Mike Vanderboegh's Patriot Day Speech at Canon City, Colorado:

"'Treason' to a government based upon treason to its own founding document is no treason at all." The "law" versus the Rule of Law. "The enemies of liberty can only make you a slave to their appetites with your own permission and inaction."

Original transcript of my Patriot's Day speech, Canon City, CO, 19 April 2015.
This is my original speaking copy. I didn't finish it until just before I stepped up to speak. This will not contain the ad libs interspersed throughout. For that you'll have to refer to the video when it gets posted.
You know, I've given a few Patriot's Day speeches the past few years -- from the steps of the Connecticut state capitol to Bunch Ranch in Nevada. But I couldn't have chosen a prettier or more meaningful venue than here in Colorado this beautiful Sunday morning -- the 240th anniversary of the battles at Lexington and Concord.
I wasn't able to go to church this morning but God was close by. As I drove down out of Custer County just after dawn, I was struck dumb with the power and majesty of God as the light played off the mountains in colors both stark and shaded.
It was breathtaking. How anyone can see such grandeur and not be convinced of the power and majesty of the Almighty Creator is beyond me. Amen?
You know we think we have mountains in North Alabama -- but they're just foothills of the old tired Appalachians. But those (points to mountains outside Canon City) -- now THOSE are mountains. The other thing I noticed as a member in good standing of the armed citizenry, is that it is VERY good KILLING ground. This is freedom fighter country, folks. May God have pity on any tyrant who tries to invade here.
The scariest thing about the present regime is that they have made every day "opposite day" as my friend David Codrea calls it by redefining reality as they choose to see it. Up is down. Deviancy is normal. War is Peace. Freedom is slavery. -- and worse, lawlessness is now codified as law -- but ONLY as they wish it it to be -- and only applying to their enemies -- that is, to the rest of us -- and not to THEM.
There is a scene in A Man For All Seasons that applies here. Sir Thomas More is arguing with a young lawyer, William Roper. Roper accuses More: "So now you give the Devil the benefit of the law!" More answers, "Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?"
"Yes!" shouts Roper, "I'd cut down every law in England to do that!" And More replies: "Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!"
The Founders understood this, especially after the Alien and Sedition act crisis almost tore the young Republic apart -- never pass a law that you're pot willing to see your own worst enemy enforce upon you. They knew this from John Locke who wrote a century before -- Locke understood that the rule of law in a constitutional republic is a precious and necessary thing for it protects all and keeps the game fair and free. But as Locke warned:
Whenever the legislators endeavour to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any farther obedience, and are left to the common refuge, which God hath provided for all men, against force and violence.
It is more than a little ironic that those of us who swore an oath to the rule of law of the Founder's Republic find ourselves forced to become law breakers in fidelity to that oath. But here's the truth that our present would-be rulers don't get -- THE RULE OF LAW PROTECTS THEM FROM US FAR MORE THAN IT PROTECTS US FROM THEM!
The collectivists currently in charge of the Executive Branch and those in charge of this state believe that the law is whatever they say it is because they won the last election. We understand that the rule of law means that any law must be subject to the limits of the Constitution. as their definition of "law" means that they have the power to compel you -- regardless of the constitutionality of their purpose -- I leave it to you to decide who is in fact "law-abiding" and faithful to the rule of law as the Founder's understood it.
As for me I have made my decision -- so have all those in states like Colorado, Connecticut, New York, Maryland and now Washington state who must confront the reality of unconstitutional laws and who have decided that armed civil disobedience of such laws is the only course open to men and women who wish to remain free but who find themselves behind enemy lines. -- For this we are called many things including "insurrectionists," "seditionists," "anti-government," and even "traitors." To these people, all who resist them are "traitors." But I tell you this and I'll tell the world:
TREASON TO A GOVERNMENT BASED UPON TREASON TO ITS OWN FOUNDING DOCUMENT IS NO TREASON AT ALL! It is merely obedience to God and the truest expression of the inalienable and natural rights to life, liberty and property that HE gave us. It is also an act of fidelity to the rule of law and the Founders' constitutional republic. Anyone who tells you differently is selling something.
And what they are selling is the notion that you, the individual, must subordinate yourself to their benevolent collective -- OR ELSE. What they are selling is that YOU are an "enemy of the people," not them -- that YOU are "anti-government," not them -- that YOU are a "law breaker" and a criminal, not them, because you believe as the Founders did that an unconstitutional law is null and void. And what they are selling is the lie that they that they aren't what their actions prove them to be -- what the Founders would have called them -- DOMESTIC ENEMIES OF THE CONSTITUTION!
What they are selling is a lie told by pathological collectivist liars in service of those liars and their hidden purpose -- to satisfy their insatiable appetites for your liberty and your property even at the cost of your life and the lives of all you hold dear. THAT is the steel fist of tyranny that they wrap their sweet lies around, hoping you won't notice until it is too late. For collectivism is the oldest form of human moral disease. And like the Terminator, it cannot be bargained with, it cannot be appeased, it can only be defeated. Collectivism in the last century consumed hundreds of millions of innocents and STILL has practitioners who want more -- and more -- and more.
But increasingly our would be rulers are discovering to their horror that there is NO unconstitutional law that they can pass that we cannot nullify with armed civil disobedience. From Connecticut to New York York to Maryland to Colorado and now Washington state, at every turn the tyrannical laws they passed after Sandy Hook have been negated. NEGATED! And the elites don't know whether to defecate or go blind. Connecticut and New York have non-compliance rates between 85 and 90 percent! In Washington state, Michael Bloomberg bought himself a universal background check law which is nothing more than a lawful gun owner registration act. For their purposes of citizen disarmament, this is far more effective than firearm registration. It's us potential troublemakers that they want to identify.
But you know what? The uncompromising firearms owners of Washington state came together at the state capitol in the largest firearm rights demonstration ever staged there. TWO THOUSAND ARMED MEN AND WOMEN MET, DEFIED THE TRANSFER LAW AND . . . NOTHING HAPPENED! Nothing happened despite the threats of state authorities to arrest us all. They denied us a permit -- the Washington state activists said, That's all right. We don' need no steenkeeng permits!" When we got there, the state had every access to vehicles blocked with barricades. The Liberty for All leadership said, "You take them down or we will." The authorities decided that discretion was the better part of valor. In the end, we held our rally, defied Bloomberg's Law and received the praise and thanks of the state police for the professional way we conducted ourselves.
In the end, all Michael Bloomberg and his paid minions could do was grind their teeth in frustration. since that time there have been other rallies defying Bloomberg's Law. at the last one, in direct violation of the hated Intolerable Act, I was presented with this --
Meet Mrs. Bloomberg -- Charlotte to her closest friends. she is named after Michael Bloomberg's mother. I take her around to every rally and speaking engagement these days to grind in the message that there is no unconstitutional law that can be passed that we cannot negate, defy, resist, evade and smuggle in opposition to. This is dangerous ground. BUT IT IS NOT GROUND THAT WE CHOSE. IT WAS CHOSEN BY THE DOMESTIC ENEMIES OF THE CONSTITUTION FOR WHOM THE RULE OF LAW MEANS NOTHING MORE THAN A FART IN THE WIND.
Which brings me to Colorado today. you know your legislature refused to repeal the magazine ban last week. so, in honor of those arrogant tyrants, I brought them a present.
(Assistant dumps a box of magazines on the grass in front of the dais.)
Here's a box filled with fifty misdemeanors -- magazines that mysteriously appeared in your state yesterday coincident with my arrival. Now these are "politician grade" magazines. We have smuggled hundreds of perfectly reliable magazines into Connecticut and Colorado over the past two years. We call those "freedom fighter" grade magazines -- you can bet your life on them. But politician-grade magazines. . . well, like politicians they are unreliable and probably won't work as advertised. They are perfect, therefore, for presentation to anti-gun politicians.
What I am looking for here today is co-conspirators in liberty. I am looking for volunteers to take these misdemeanors, present them in whatever otherwise legal method that you choose, along with the message -- "This was smuggled into Colorado in violation of your law. Now that you've taken possession of it, why don't you go arrest yourself?"
Or words to that effect.
So the alternative is yours -- will you join the nationwide conspiracy for liberty? It is not without risk, but somewhere the Founders will be smiling. And remember this -- THE ENEMIES OF LIBERTY CAN ONLY MAKE YOU A SLAVE TO THEIR APPETITES WITH YOUR OWN PERMISSION AND INACTION. The choice is yours. Do I have any volunteers?
(Every magazine was picked up by a member of the audience. There was no lack of volunteers.)

Jade Helm, Dictator Obama, take the power back


22 congressmen demand Obama immigration audit

From WND:


Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, and 21 other members of Congress are demanding the Government Accountability Office conduct a formal audit of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services out of growing suspicion that money is being improperly used to fund President Obama’s unilateral immigration actions in violation of court order.

Of greatest concern to Gohmert and the other members is the allocation of fees collected by the government through the legal immigration process and whether money charged of those in the country legally is actually being used to secure legal status for those who broke the law to get to the U.S.

“They raise most of their money through fees,” Gohmert said in an interview with WND and Radio America. “They used the fees for things they lied about using them for. We need the Government [Accountability] Office to get to the bottom. What are they using those fees for?”

The issue is triggering more concern for numerous reasons, the most recent of which stems from a confrontation inside the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday between Gohmert and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Sarah Saldena.

Gohmert asked Saldena why the government has already granted three-year deferrals to more than 108,000 illegal immigrants who ought to be deported and where the authorization came from. Saldena said the authorization did not matter to her since it came from Citizenship and Immigration Services, or CIS.

When Gohmert wondered if Saldena was not bothered by the prospect of so many people receiving fraudulent benefits, she insisted she was concerned about potential fraud.

“If you don’t like fraud, does it bother you that your Homeland Security Department that you work for has actually instigated a fraud among the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas?” asked Gohmert at the hearing.

“Representative Gohmert, with all due respect, I would appreciate you not yelling,” Saldena said.

That exchange may have been the last straw.

“That further accentuated the need to get some answers,” he said, noting that the more suspicious the government’s actions, the less helpful the administration is in responding to those concerns.

“The administration sends directors like the one from CIS over, who at one time had done great things and been noble participants in government,” Gohmert said. “Then all of a sudden they become in a position of leadership in this information and their job seems to be to obfuscate, to hide, to prevent people from finding out what was done illegally or unconstitutionally.”

In addition to the frustration on Capitol Hill, Gohmert said it is obvious the Obama administration is thumbing its nose toward lawmakers, the rule of law and a crystal-clear court order to stop implementing the administration’s unilateral actions that Gohmert and others label as amnesty.

“It is clear that Homeland Security and CIS has been violating the law, the Constitution, and in particular, United States District Judge Andrew Hanen’s order not to be granting amnesty that the president spoke into being,” said Gohmert, noting Obama never actually signed any orders to try and change the law but instead directed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to issue a memorandum noting the change.

With the government providing very little help in clarifying how immigration fees are being used and whether the administration is complying with the law, Gohmert sent an investigator to CIS offices in Arlington, Virginia.

“They have massive Grade A space. I’m shocked that they would feel the need to lease or purchase or create this Grade A business space for something that could virtually be done in a warehouse,” he said. “How did they get this space? Who paid for it? How much did they pay for it? Who is being hired?”

The investigator was sternly rebuffed when asking for more details on CIS operations.

“We couldn’t get any of that information,” he said. “They were stonewalling on everything, everybody saying, ‘You’ll have to talk to this person or that person.’ Nobody was willing to get answers, nobody was willing to let a representative sent by a congressman in to review the facilities they’ve hired.”

Gohmert said the good news is that Congress does not need to pass anything to force the Government Accountability Office, or GAO, to conduct a formal audit.

“They are supposed to do audits where they see that they’re necessary,” he said. “Congress can direct them to specifically do audits, but we hope by bringing this to GAO’s attention, they will say, ‘This is true. This is not money that’s appropriated. They say they only need $600 million on hand for a rainy day fund, and yet they have $1.2 billion. So we we better take a look at this.’”

Congress has demanded answers in other investigations into this administration only to find that key data no longer exists or numbers have been fudged. Gohmert said he’s not overly worried about that happening in this fight.

“It may be that we’ll run into the same problem that we had with the IRS or with the State Department,” he said. “Gee, all of a sudden everything that would show what they’ve been doing gets deleted. But if it happens that they’ve deleted spending records, then they will have run into some criminal violations and be looking at prison.”

In the meantime, the investigation continues into whether the Obama administration is abiding by Judge Hanen’s order and suspending deferrals of deportation until the issue is settled in court or whether the government is directly violating court orders. Gohmert said the evidence following Hanen’s first ruling strongly suggests the latter.

“They finally had to come in, I believe it was March 3, and admit, ‘Gee, since November 20, even though we told you we would not violate your order and would not be granting these, there have been 108,081 that have been granted,” Gohmert said.

He said the administration has an explanation for that, but its veracity is very much in question:

“They said those were just renewals from the prior amnesty program, but there’s some question about that at this point.”

National Guard Troops Patrol California City, Conduct New Jersey "Homeland Response Drill"

From Zero Hedge

Late last week, when we covered the various signs that "something big" may be coming, we discussed the one "exercise that people have really been buzzing about" - operation "Jade Helm", an “unconventional warfare exercise” during which the states Texas and Utah will be designated as hostile territory.

As previously profiled, "Jade Helm is a challenging eight-week joint military and Interagency (IA) Unconventional Warfare (UW) exercise conducted throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado,” according to an unclassified military document announcing the training drill, which runs from July 15 through September 15.

Multiple branches of the US military, including Green Berets, Navy Seals, and the 82nd Airborne Division, will participate in the 8-week long exercise, which may result in “increased aircraft in the area at night.”

Troops will be tasked with honing advanced skills in “large areas of undeveloped land with low population densities,” and will work alongside “civilians to gain their trust and an understanding of the issues.”

The exercise, in which some participants will be “wearing civilian clothes and driving civilian vehicles,” lists Texas and Utah as “hostile" territory.

The proposed theater of operations of Operation Jade Helm is shown on the map below:

So while there are still three months until Jade Helm officially opens, various documented reports of substantial national guard drills and troop exercises are starting to trickle in early. As Paul Joseph Watson notes, the first documented proof of National Guard drills comes from Ontario, California where National Guard troops can be seen patrolling residential streets and practicing traffic control.

In the video troops, followed by a humvee, are seen marching close to an elementary school and single family homes.
“I just watched it again and recognized the low block wall and the elementary school! It was right there where my sister and her husband live! OMG how frightening!” one YouTube commenter responded, while others insisted the patrols were a routine occurrence.
However, another respondent insisted that the patrol was not normal.
“During the last few seconds I got a quick glimpse of my sister and brother-in-laws house on Fuschia. Ave,” wrote the commenter.”That motorcycle was parked almost in front of their house. They told me they saw this procession going on from their front yard. They have lived in that house for 30 or so yrs and this is the first time they have seen this type of thing in their neighborhood. Might be a common thing to do their training someplace else but not in that area.”
This is not the first such clip: a disturbing video out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida last month also showed military and law enforcement practicing the internment of citizens during martial-law style training.

Meanwhile on the eastern US easboard, the PostStar reports that nearly 600 Army and Air National Guard forces from New Jersey and New York “are preparing for the worst.”
They are participating in a homeland response force drill at New Jersey’s Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst on Friday.
The troops specialize in rescue, security, decontamination and medical treatment.
The units will train to rapidly assess and identify a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear incident.
Of course, the bigger concern is that the real motive behind this major national guard exercise is not a focus on a “defensive” drill from an outside threat, but one dealing with a domestic threat.

How is that possible, some would say? Could the national guard really be preparing for a confrontation with the US population?

Unfortunately the answer is yes, as we reported last August in “Under What Conditions Can The US Army Engage Citizens: The Army’s “Civil Disturbances” Primer” which lays out not only when the US Army (and national guard) can engage the US population, but lays out clearly the protocol under which the US army is specifically permitted to engage in “PSYOPs” against the US population.

Here are the salient points, as reported previously, from the primer which begins with the umbrella statement:
Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots. Gathering in protest may be a recognized right of any person or group, regardless of where U.S. forces may be operating. In the United States, this fundamental right is protected under the Constitution of the United States…
“Protected” it may be, but as usual, the interpretation of the Constitution is in the eye of the beholder, or more appropriately, gun holder. Because shortly thereafter we further read the following:
The Constitution of the United States, laws, regulations, policies, and other legal issues limit the use of federal military personnel in domestic support operations. Any Army involvement in civil disturbance operations involves many legal issues requiring comprehensive legal reviews. However, federal forces are authorized for use in civil disturbance operations under certain circumstances.
What circumstances? For the answer we turn to section, 2-8. To wit:
The Constitution of the United States provides two exceptions for which the Posse Comitatus Act does not apply. These exceptions are based upon the inherent right of the U.S. government to ensure the preservation of public order and to carrying out governmental operations within its territorial limits by force, if necessary. These two exceptions are—
  • Emergency authority. A sudden and unexpected civil disturbance, disaster, or calamity may seriously endanger life and property and disrupt normal governmental functions to such an extent that local authorities cannot control the situation. At such times, the federal government may use military force to prevent the loss of life or wanton destruction of property and to restore government functions and public order. In these circumstances, federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances (see DODD 3025.18).
  • Protection of federal property and functions. When the need for the protection of federal property or federal functions exists, and duly constituted local authorities are unable to, or decline to provide adequate protection, federal action, including the use of military forces, is authorized.
2-9. Laws passed by the U.S. congress include four exceptions to the Posse Comitatus Act. With the first three laws discussed below (10 USC 331–333) there is a prerequisite that the President must take personal action, including the issuance of a proclamation calling upon insurgents to disperse and retire peaceably within a limited time. The four exceptions, based on law are—
  • 10 USC 331. When a state is unable to control domestic violence and they have requested federal assistance, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.
  • 10 USC 332. When ordinary enforcement means are unworkable due to unlawful obstructions or rebellion against the authority of the United States, use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.
  • 10 USC 333. When a state cannot or will not protect the constitutional rights of the citizens, due to domestic violence or conspiracy to hinder execution of State or Federal law, the use of the militia or Armed Forces is authorized.
  • House Joint Resolution 1292. This resolution directs all departments of the U.S. government, upon request of the Secret Service, to assist in carrying out its statutory duties to protect government officials and major political candidates from physical harm.
In other words, if and when the US Armed Forces decide that rioting infringes upon any of these exclusions, then the constitution no longer applies and the use of lethal force becomes a viable option against US citizens.

It gets worse, because whereas one would expect that a “Constitutional expert” such as the president, Barack Obama would be the one tasked with interpreting if and when the Constitution no longer applies, the primer is quite explicit in handing over responsibility to “federal military commanders”:
… federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbance.
So should Obama resume his vacation even as things in Missouri escalate dramatically, and be “unreachable”, it may well come to pass that Obama’s opinion will be irrelevant not only whether the National Guard should be unleashed in Ferguson, but whether Posse Comitatus is suddenly null and void.

The good news: the use of lethal force is not the only option the US Army would have if and when it engages with the population. US citizens may simply  be herded into “temporary internment camps” for reindoctrination purposes under the supervision of PSYOP Officer (no really, they used that word), as follows from the Army’s FM3-39.40 Internment and Resettlment Operationsmanual:
Internment and Resettlement (I/R) operations facilitate the ability to conduct rapid and decisive combat operations; deter, mitigate, and defeat threats to populations that may result in conflict; reverse conditions of human suffering; and build the capacity  of a foreign government to effectively care for and govern its population. This includes capabilities to conduct  shaping operations across the spectrum of military operations to mitigate and defeat the underlying conditions  for conflict and counter the core motivations that result in support to criminal, terrorist, insurgent, and other destabilizing groups. I/R operations also include the daily incarceration of U.S. military prisoners at facilities  throughout the world.
An adaptive enemy will manipulate populations that are hostile to U.S. intent by instigating mass civil disobedience, directing criminal activity, masking their operations in urban and other complex terrain, maintaining an indistinguishable presence through cultural anonymity, and actively seeking the traditional sanctuary of protected areas as defined by the rules of land warfare. Such actions will facilitate the dispersal of threat forces, negate technological overmatches, and degrade targeting opportunities. Commanders will use technology and conduct police intelligence operations to influence and control populations, evacuate detainees and, conclusively, transition rehabilitative and reconciliation operations to other functional agencies. The combat identification of friend, foe, or neutral is used to differentiate combatants from noncombatants and friendly forces from threat forces.
Presenting army camps, hopefully not in a city near you:
Detainee facilities, an important planning consideration, are treated in the same basic fashion as any base camps. The same basic planning considerations are taken into  account. Some detainee facilities will be subordinate to a larger base camp but they may also be at a separate location.
Of course, none of this will be needed if the Army’s Psyops work as required:
The PSYOP officer in charge of supporting I/R operations serves as the special staff officer responsible for PSYOP. The PSYOP officer advises the military police commander on the psychological impact of military police or MI actions to prevent misunderstandings and disturbances by detainees and DCs. The supporting I/R PSYOP team has two missions that reduce the need to divert military police assets to maintain security in the I/R facility.  The team—
  • Assists the military police force in controlling detainees and DCs.
  • Introduces detainees or DCs to U.S. and multinational policy.
  • Develops PSYOP products that are designed to pacify and acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations.
  • Gains the cooperation of detainees or DCs to reduce the number of guards needed.
  • Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.
  • Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.
  • Identifies political activists.
  • Provides loudspeaker support (such as administrative announcements and facility instructions when necessary).
  • Helps the military police commander control detainee and DC populations during emergencies.
  • Plans and executes a PSYOP
In other words, if and when the time comes to “override” Posse Comitatus, random US citizens may have two options: i) end up in the US version of a Gulag or, worse, ii) be shot. For now, however, just keep an eye on the various drill videos to get a sense of the US army’s preparedness in dealing with “civil disobedience.”
