The Perfect Law of Liberty


"But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed." James 1:25

Christendom today teaches that the Law is bondage.  Some of these people have even said that they will not return again to the slavery of Yahovah's Torah (as if they had previously been therein).  Others try to distinguish between the "moral" Law and the "ceremonial" Law, as if there is some distinction between the Laws and some they must follow and others they can disregard.

Jesus made no such distinction,


"For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."  Matthew 5:18

It is even said that one does not have to obey the Law because Jesus fulfilled that requirement for us, and quote Matthew 5:17 as if that somehow supports what they say.
 
But Jesus not only says that the Law shall in NO WAY pass away, but that,


"Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.Matthew 5:19

And further,


"If ye love me, keep my commandments."  John 14:15

The Apostle Paul equates Torahlessness with the anti-Christ.


"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way."  2 Thessalonians 2:7

That word "iniquity" means without the Torah.  

Indeed, if there is no Law, there is no sin because what is sin but transgression of the Law?  If Jesus did away with the Law, what need is there of Salvation?  If there is no Law, there is no transgression.  If there is no transgression, there is no need of Salvation.

We saw in Genesis a choice.  There was a choice between the Tree of Life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

And again in the so-called New Testament, we have a choice.  We have the Jesus that taught the Torah, and the lawless Jesus.  Today's Christianity has chosen the lawless Jesus, just as they did when they demanded that Yahovah Yeshua be crucified.

This is the great apostasy;  Lawlessness.  Torahlessness.  The anti-Christ is even called the man of lawlessness.  His followers are also lawless, without the Torah.

Jesus has a word for those that claim Him yet do not keep His Torah,


"And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."  Matthew 7:23

There's that word iniquity again.  Iniquity is not keeping Yahovah's Law.  People will be astonished in that day, because they have prophesied in His name and cast out devils and in His Name done many wonderful works.  Here's the thing, these things can be done because there is power in His Name, not because there was power in those lawless ones.


Are we to Sacrifice Animals in the Back Yard?!

Well you'd be breaking the Law if you did.  First you would have to be a descendent of Aaron, a priest, and second it has to be in the appointed place, Jerusalem, and third, in the Temple.  But lets think about this further.  The Temple has been destroyed, and Israel is scattered.  How did Daniel handle this situation?  He followed the Laws he could keep while in captivity.  He refused to break the Torah, even at the cost of his life.  This is a good principle to follow, if you understand nothing else.  Keep the Laws you can keep.

But there is something much further and deeper here if we can see it.  In the animal sacrifices,  the priest is to lay his hands on the head of the animal.  This laying on of the hands is for our identity with the animal being sacrificed.  There is a principle of the Law here that we must still follow and which Jesus taught us when He was here teaching the Torah.  The Apostle Paul taught the same thing.

There are a couple things to consider here.  One, we are now made priests.  Two, we are the New Jerusalem and we are Temple.  And three, we are the sacrifice.  Thus the elements are all present for the legal, or Lawful, sacrifices.  Some would object here and say that Jesus is the Sacrifice, and that is correct.  But this is not a one-way street.  Jesus made the ultimate Sacrifice, but we are still to do the daily sacrifices.

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me."  Matthew 16:24

The Apostle Paul said "I die daily."  And that is what Jesus was talking about.  This is the principle of the Law that we must follow.  You cannot do this of yourself or with your own strength; this is only by the power of the Ruach Kodesh.

So many Christians today say that they cannot keep the Law because of the weakness of their flesh.  But we are not to live by the flesh, but by the Spirit.  If you are still living by the flesh, you are not of Christ, and Christian in name only.


Striving to Keep the Law

Yeshua told us that unless our righteousness exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees we will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.  We know that the scribes and Pharisees strove to keep the Law.  So how is our striving any different?  We also know that there is the letter of the Law and the Spirit of the Law.


"Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life."  2 Corinthians 3:6

How does the letter kill?  If you follow only the letter of the Law, you exclude the principle, or Spirit, behind the Law.  In other words, the letter kills the Spirit of the Law.

The letter of the law tells us not to kill.  The Spirit tell us not to hate.  The Spirit is the deeper application of the Law.  Does that mean you can kill if you don't hate the person you want to murder?  No!  The Spirit of the Law does not do away with the letter, but expands it; demanding that our righteousness be greater than the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees.


What about the "Ceremonial" Law?

There is no distinction in the Word between the "Moral" Law and the "Ceremonial" Law.  This distinction is completely man-made; just as all the additional laws made up by the Pharisees that negate the Law of God.  Forget these and just follow the Law of God, as written by Moses and interpreted by Yeshua and His Apostles, as you are taught and lead by the Holy Spirit.  The principle behind those Laws thought to be "ceremonial" concern "cleanness."  As the Temple of the Holy Spirit we are to remain clean and undefiled, so as not to offend Him.

Learn these Laws.  Then ask the Ruach Kodesh what is the principle behind these laws and follow the teaching and leading of the Holy Spirit.


Remember His Sabbaths

The Sabbath is not Sunday! No one has the right to change God's Laws, although the Roman Catholic Church has claimed such a right and in fact says that they have changed the Lord's Sabbath to Sunday.  The Pharisees also claimed such a right, but Yeshua condemned them for it.

Yahovah tells us repeatedly to keep, or guard, His Sabbaths.  When He says "Sabbaths" He means not only the weekly Sabbath, the seventh day of the week, but also the Sabbath Feasts, Passover and unleavened bread, First Fruits, Weeks, Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles.  And also the Shemitah and Jubilee years.  As well as Hanukkah, and Purim.  There are also principles behind these laws that we are to understand, but we must also observe these set apart days as Yahovah tells us, for this separates us from the common and unto the King of the Universe.  This is part of our Temple service, if indeed the Spirit dwells in us.


Till heaven and earth pass

Neither has heaven nor earth passed and neither has the Law been done away with.  Look into the perfect Law of Liberty and continue therein, being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, and be blessed in deed.

Study the entire Word. And be not deceived.

Yahovah bless you this Sabbath.

The Deep State - Corporate Fascism and The Lincoln Legacy

The Bankster Cartel
Very few Americans understand how our country works, what drives the policies, both foreign and domestic, what drives the judiciary, the legislative and executive, even law enforcement and how these things are influenced behind the scenes.  Laws are made and policies are enacted not based upon the will of the people or what is best for the majority of Americans, but by those few that benefit the most from them and have the most influence on government operations and those bureaucrats who execute those policies.  No where is this more evident than in the secret structures of government, such as the intelligence agencies like CIA, the NSA and the NGOs they operate through, and it makes no difference which political party is in office, as we have previously proven here.

If you are one of those Americans that think that America is hated throughout the world because of our freedoms and wealth, you have the most to learn from the following videos.  If you think that America is a free country, you have the most to gain from watching.  This is a five part series, and the videos run from less than an hour to almost two hours an episode.  It is well worth the time invested.

The Connection
If you wonder what this has to do with Abraham Lincoln, I would just suggest that our current tyrannical Federal Government would be impossible had it not been for Lincoln's War Against the States.  The founding fathers of this country set up a balance of power to keep the Federal government in check, and no that wasn't to set up three branches of the same Federal government.  The balance to Federal Power was the States.  The States were expected to have, control and direct their own militias to add teeth to their power.  That all ended with Lincoln's War Against the States.  Each state guard is now under the control of the Commander in Chief of the Federal Government, not the State Governors.  In short, there is no more balance of power as contemplated by the founders of our country.  Something to consider as you watch these videos of the Deep State that is our Federal Government.














And now, the Truth about Lincoln:



And the Deep State just keeps getting Deeper.

And deeper.

Enemies Foreign and Domesticated: The Feminization of American Males By Bill Buppert


ZeroGov



Bill’s Note: So Trump is the nominee, I had my money on Cthulhu in a just universe but Trump will do. This is the same government supremacist party that nominates such worthies as Dole, McCain and Romney and elects Democrat analogs like the Busheviks. If it destroys the GOP, the party had a good run for hundred and fifty years helping to create the largest government the planet has ever had the misfortune of hosting.

I am still convinced that Bernie Sander is every one of these scoundrels on truth serum, they just don’t have the stones of that totalitarian gasbag.

Moving and unpacking continues apace along with all the attendant relocation time distractions that interrupt normal life. I am hoping to be done in the next thirty days so I can get back to a more frequent writing schedule. –BB



The difference between males and men is accountability, responsibility and honor. The latter is possessed of these qualities while the former flees from it. Like all complex problems, a number of vectors inform the root causes and consequences.

Men tend to take their responsibilities and accountability pretty seriously even to the point of a moral hazard that forces them into failure. Consequences aren’t always good but honor should always be intact.

One of the frequent questions I am asked in speeches and interviews is the cosmic question of what is to be done as if a shooting war or revolution will set everything right for which the historical precedent process the opposite. The few humans who accept abolition as the right philosophical perspective with their fellow man are often expected to give some sage wisdom that strikes the sword to dash the Gordian knot that is the ubiquitous human chattel system called politics.

It all begins at the atomistic level and if you have children and they attend a government school, you have failed fundamentally. I realize that convenience and the conventional wisdom informs so many of these decisions but a cursory examination of first principles would reveal that statist reeducation camps are the mainstay of creating and sustaining the global gulag systems that go by other names whether towns, counties states or nations.

Here in Arizona, we have yet another initiative on the ballot for dolts dim enough to believe the government-media complex drumbeat to give more money to these wretched school systems that miraculously turn formerly human individuals into brain-deadened chattel with the critical thinking skills of a cactus and political followership traits that would put a smile even on the dour Josef Stalin. I find that conservatives are just as bad as liberals in thinking that government is the best and brightest for delivering the most fundamental services.

Imagine if you will that in the 1930s, RedDR had considered food so important, he nationalized all food production from farm to grocer. Fast forward to today and one is buying rotting and diminished quantities of food from the local Venezuela Vittles or Collectivist Co-op government grocery store staffed by DMV trained customer service representatives after you’ve waited in lines for three hours for a stale loaf of bread, cat/dog food and birdseed (to attract the extra meat staple to augment your ration card losses).

A wet dream for Bernie Sanders.

Again, first principles.

The empirical history of state-run schooling is a direct relationship to more dollars equating to an even greater instupidation of the students and the increasingly intellectual imbecility of the esteemed teacher caste. The moral case would demonstrate to most thinking parents that surrendering their progeny to the care of a government facility for most of the child’s waking hours staffed by union-led dimwits in the classroom would alarm even the most jaded and lazy mothers and fathers. No government school ever in North America has improved scholarship and erudition with more money pumped into the abyss.

Ever.

With rare exception, K-12 teachers tend to be no more than their analogs in Hollywood who are simply bipedal budgies that parrot much of the nonsense they manage to remember from the substandard and wholly unnecessary education undergraduate degrees that are worse than useless much like the notion of four years being required to become a journalist; “journalists” who simply become state-fellating stenographers for violence brokers and government apologists who put a happy face on totalitarian excess for a living. Of course, that screed is the subject of another essay at another time. I digress.

Nice work if you can get it.

Yet, left and right in America seem to have a consensus that government schools must exist and don’t question the flawed fundamental proposition that the government has a vested interest in molding these young and impressionable minds from the beginning to groom and nurture the government supremacist paradigm and create Hitlerjugend and Young Pioneers who worship state primacy and fidelity to violent institutions that actively subvert the very essence of familial relations and blood kinship.

If you live in the house in Amityville or send your precious ones to a government school, I have two words for you:

Get out!

There is no more fundamental obligation you have as a parent than to rear (you raise vegetables and collectivists) your own children and educate them yourself. Even the true believing apparatchiks in the political class and their mouth-breathing mandarins send their urchins to private schools and tutors.

Can’t afford to home educate? BS, cut where you have to and hire tutors if necessary.

You can afford it but don’t? Sell your new cars, cut back on consumption and spend the surplus on books, museums and feeding your kid’s passion.

You’re wealthy with no children or they’ve left already? Help families in need. Subsidize tutors, pass on your expertise and buy rounds for the families so they can get their kids range qualified.

Not only are the government schools harmful to a child’s brain, they are infinitely more harmful to boys with their jihad against masculinity in all of its manifestations. Historically, all political ecologies demand obedience, which they win through warfare, violent compliance regimes and gender-norming to estrogen nation. As Iceland has demonstrated, there is terrific danger to governments that don’t savage the very notion of masculinity.

Job one in the American education system beside instupidation and surgical removal of critical thinking faculties is the absolute supremacy of the feminine mindset and concomitant pursuit of security above all else and absolute risk aversion and mitigation. This is not a jeremiad against the fairer sex but a simple affirmation that both happen to be genetically and psychologically wired differently for very good reasons when combined in a cooperative union.

There is a reason there is gender gap in liberty and libertarian circles. Guaranteed and assured security with out risk is impossible in a market economy and a libertarian society. This may be the single largest contributor to this gender chasm.

So if you have boys, that is all the more reason to drive to the local mind laundry where you confidently deposited them this morning, march directly to the classroom he is trapped in and get him out of there.

Immediately.

And then on your way home, apologize to him profusely and promise you will never allow such harm to occur again as long as you are alive. Then take the time to admit that your moral cowardice and the sheer inconvenience of rebellion has made his prospects in the future that much worse and would you care to discuss what we do about that.

Please stop at the house to get your guns and get your son to the range that afternoon. Because as men, not males, we have a duty and obligation to protect our kith and kin from all enemies, foreign and domesticated.

Resist the temptation not to do the right thing.



Be this guy instead…
  

Freedom Betrayed: The Constitution is Lexington’s Tombstone


ZeroGov – by Bill Buppert

19 April is the 241sth anniversary of the “shot heard ‘round the world” at Lexington and Concord. The British regulars who started the fracas were following an age-old government tradition of seizing powder, munitions and property for a pretentious King who had assumed such wide distribution of the tools of resistance should be available only to the government-approved groups such as soldiers despite the danger on the frontier. We celebrate that time of defiance against tyranny when for sixteen years (1775-1791), all thirteen colonial provinces and the thousands of rural polities that existed outside or alongside the framework enjoyed a freedom they had not previously had; unfortunately after 1791 they would become enslaved once again under the totalitarian doomsday machine known as the Constitution. The lobster-backs and British taxing regime would be replaced by a domestic variety of even more extreme virulence whose sole safety mechanism was a constant western diaspora trying to escape the clutches of the “Republic”. By the middle of the 19th century, all the pieces were in play to seal the deal and Lincolnian project buried the Second American Revolution under hundreds of thousands of corpses to let freedom ring.

The whitewashed history since then has lionized the inauguration of the divorce from the United Kingdom on this day and mistakenly links these events to all the “freedom” enjoyed under the Constitution. The Federalist coup in 1787 that re-established an English-style yoke of central planning, national taxation and slight tinkering with indentured servitude to a kinder and gentler tax and regulatory apparatus did no more grant individual freedom than the Romans gave to conquered lands.

I won’t belabor the point here as I have done this in previous essays and the resistance commentariat has taken up the cudgel with aplomb and covered it adroitly.

The Declaration of Independence, whether penned by Thomas Jefferson or Thomas Paine, is as elegant a jeremiad against tyranny as has been written. The relationship between the Declaration and the Constitution is the same as the one between the crucifix and the vampire. One cannot be consonant with the other because their aspirations are antithetical to the opposing aspirant. As the brilliant Lysander Spooner would opine: “But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.”

Captain Parker commanded the militia this day for an idea that was smothered and crushed by the Federalist coup in 1787.

When you look around on this day in this time at the minimum security (for now) Club Fed that is America, ask yourself what Parker would think. Everything you see (and don’t see in the surveillance state that surrounds you) is a product of the glorious Constitutional Republic that Spooner described so splendidly.

As an Appleseed Instructor and Shoot Boss on extended sabbatical, part of the instruction in this extraordinary marksmanship program was a gripping retelling of the Three Strikes of the Match that led to the divorce proceedings with George III and started the First American Revolution. While I don’t share all the goals of the program hence the extended leave of absence, the telling of this ripping yarn has no match. I regret you can’t hear this from a seasoned instructor but the reading can be compelling.

For those who wish further elucidation, I recommend Rothbard’s Conceived in Liberty and Fischer’s Paul Revere’s Ride. The two books will lead to many more books to better understand the hoodwinking you have suffered through government schooling and the attendant media apparatchiks who reinforce the mewlings of the mind laundries. These books will lead to better understanding the modest but brilliant interregnum when the North American Confederation was free excepting the large number of indentured servants and chattel slaves. But the Constitution would remedy this by nationalizing the former and codifying the latter. The destruction of individual liberty would begin apace.

You can make sure Parker’s sacrifice, he would die in September of that year, was not in vain.

Reflect and remember this day should force you to think on the state of your chains, whether you acknowledge them or not.

See you at the Green Dragon Tavern.

Resist. –BB

The First Strike of the Match

It’s 19 April, 1775. In Massachusetts Colony, the times were hard. The Colonial government had been abolished, and a military governor, General Thomas Gage, controlled Boston under martial law. Boston was practically a ghost town. The Port Act had seen to that, as the port had been closed to all traffic for months. The town slowly died without commerce, and many of those remaining in town relied on the kindness of outsiders to acquire food and necessities. Troops destroyed buildings and their contents for fire wood. Disease was rampant. The King was bent on breaking the radicals and bringing the colonies back in line, where they would pay dearly in taxes and subjugation to the motherland, and he was close to doing it.

The precedent had been set. In order to subjugate the colonies, England would have to disarm them. The colonies had a long standing custom for militia, and the militia was armed. The most expedient method of disarmament was to take their ammunition. Gunpowder was typically stored in a specially built powder house for safety and security and drawn for the militia when needed.

Hard Times And False Narratives

by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog,

The mainstream media mouthpieces for the establishment peddle false narratives, disingenuous storylines, and outright propaganda to keep the ignorant masses confused, oblivious to reality, misinformed, and passively submissive to the opinions of highly paid “experts” and captured fiscal authorities. The existing social order likes things just as they are. 

They reap ill-gotten riches, wield unchecked power, and control the minds of the masses. They are the invisible government consciously manipulating the minds, habits and opinions of the multitudes in order to dominate society, control the levers of government, and accumulate obscene levels of wealth through manipulation of the currency and domination of the banking and corporate interests.

One of the false narratives being flogged by the establishment propaganda peddlers is the mass retirement of Baby Boomers causing the plunge in the employment to population rate from 64.4% in 2000 to 59.7% today. They need to peddle this drivel, because the difference between these two rates amounts to 12 million missing jobs. The employment to population ratio is currently at 1984 levels. Any critical thinking person with basic math skills realizes the government reported unemployment rate of 5% is an Orwellian farce.

Over 40% of working age Americans aren’t working, amounting to 102 million people, and the establishment touts the ludicrous lie of a 5% unemployment rate. With only 123 million Americans employed full-time and virtually all the job “growth” since 2009 in non-producing low paying service jobs in the retail, restaurant, hospitality and healthcare industries, wages and household income remain stagnant. The 12 million shortfall in jobs isn’t due to Boomers retiring, as this chart proves beyond a shadow of a doubt. Only an Ivy League educated economist or CNBC talking head could pretend to be confused.

We know for a fact 10,000 Americans have been turning 65 years old every day for the last few years and will for the next fifteen years. When the employment to population ratio peaked in 2000 at 64.4%, the ratio for senior citizens was only 12%. It had remained between 10% and 12% for over two decades. There were 35 million Americans over 65 years old in 2000, and 31 million of the them were not employed. They made up a large portion (44%) of the 70 million people not in the labor force.

Today there are 48 million Americans over 65 years old, and 39 million of them are not employed. The establishment narrative is blown to smithereens by the FACT they now only account for 41% of the 94 million people not in the labor force. There are only 14 million more employed Americans today than in the year 2000, while there are 5 million more employed Americans over the age of 65. They have accounted for 36% of all the jobs created in the last 16 years. The percentage of senior citizens working is at an all-time high of 18.9% and rising.

The narrative of retiring Baby Boomers being the cause for the plunging participation rate is entirely false. The data is not hidden. It’s easily accessible. Any CNBC pundit, Wall Street Journal reporter, or Ivy League MBA Wall Street analyst with even a smattering of math skills could discern the truth. Based on the fact they continue to flog false narratives, makes you believe their job and intent is to obscure the truth, obfuscate the facts, and paint a rosy picture for their establishment bosses. There are almost 4 million less Americans aged 16 to 55 employed today than there were in 2007. Does that happen in an economic recovery?



Since 2007 the working age population has grown by 21 million, while the number of employed Americans is only 4.6 million higher. Those over 55 years old account for 174% of the employment gain since 2007. Does that sound like a mass boomer retirement story? The best part is the government perpetuating the Big Lie by saying the unemployment rate today is essentially the same as in 2007 at around 5%. You just pretend 15.3 million able bodied working age Americans left the labor force of their own free will and do not want a job. You then create a narrative of Boomer retirement which is beaten like a dead horse by the captured corporate MSM until the ignorant masses believe it.

There is a reason senior citizens are working until they keel over while greeting the creatures of Wal-Mart. The economy has not recovered for the average working jamoke. The Federal Reserve has crushed the finances of senior citizens since 2000. Their reckless monetary policies created two massive bubbles, destroying the net worth of millions of older Americans. Their “Save a Wall Street Banker” solutions to the worldwide financial crisis they created have gutted the savings of seniors. Seniors now have to decide whether to pay the rent or pay for their heart medicine, thanks to those heroes of the status quo – Ben and Janet.

The relentless inflation in food, rent and healthcare created by the Fed and getting 0% on their savings has left millions of seniors destitute and desperate. They aren’t working because they’re bored. They aren’t lugging bags of cow manure in the garden center at Lowes because they love being close to nature. They are working during their retirement years because they don’t like the taste of Fancy Feast. Despite the happy talk by politicians like Obama about the economic recovery, real people living in the real world are living through a Depression.

The stock market soared during the 1930s. GDP rose during the 1930s. But, they still call it the Great Depression. We have been in the midst of a Greater Depression since 2000. The ruling class uses all their powers of media propaganda persuasion, utilization of highly paid “expert” whores, and a myriad of technological bread and circuses to keep the masses dumbed down, sedated, amused and confused. The percentage of 25 to 54 year olds working today is at an all-time low. The percentage of men working today is at an all-time low. These facts are not reported by the dying legacy MSM.

If you feel like you haven’t gotten ahead in the last sixteen years, you’re right. Real median household income is lower than it was in 2000. The ruling class is confident their public education system has sufficiently dumbed down the populace so they don’t understand the difference between nominal and real. In addition, the powers that be control the definition and calculation of inflation, so the inflation numbers used to define real median household income are entirely false and significantly understated. Using true inflation numbers would reveal household income to be dramatically lower than it was in 2000. It is actually lower than it was in 1971, when Nixon closed the gold window.



The numbers and narrative presented by the establishment simply don’t pass the smell test. If the economy had been recovering for the last seven years, millions of good paying jobs had been created and unemployment is really only 5%, then why have retailers been reporting atrocious sales and plunging profits? Why have corporate profits fallen for four straight quarters? Why is every economic indicator flashing red while the BLS says the employment situation has never been better? Challenger, Grey and Christmas surveys the real world and reports:

Employers have announced a total of 250,061 planned job cuts through the first four months of 2016. That is up 24 percent from the 201,796 job cuts tracked during the same period a year ago. It is the highest January-April total since 2009, when the opening four months of the year saw 695,100 job cuts.

Do you believe corrupt government drones or a private enterprise totaling up real layoff notices from real companies? Consumer debt is at all-time highs as people are depending on their credit cards to survive. Obamacare created premium increases are destroying the finances of families and small businesses across America. Home prices are at all-time highs, shutting most people out of the market and creating such high rental demand that rents are also at all-time highs and rising rapidly. Gas prices are up over 30% since February. Food prices are up 10% since the start of the year. At least senior citizens got a 0% increase in their Social Security benefits this year because there is NO INFLATION.

The chart of despair below reflects the relentless decline in the standard of living for the average American household. The wages of the American worker have fallen or remained stagnant for decades, while the government reports an ever expanding GDP. If GDP is dependent upon consumer expenditures to generate 69% of its total, how could it grow as real household incomes decline?

If you guessed enormous amounts of debt, you win the booby prize. The establishment (Wall Street, mega-corps, politicians, corporate media) convinced the masses to impoverish themselves while trying to live an unattainable lifestyle using credit cards, mortgages, auto loans, and student loan debt. Who benefited from the enslavement of the masses in debt? The debt peddlers, mega-corps, paid off politicians, and media maggots. They need a believable narrative to keep their profits flowing.

The absurdity of government’s economic recovery narrative is revealed as nothing more than a debt financed mirage to allow the .01% ruling class to pillage what remains of the national wealth before initiating another collapse designed to further increase their power and control. When a senior citizen has to borrow to pay the rent, that increases GDP. When your health insurance premiums go up by 25%, that increases GDP. When Obama drones a hospital in the Middle East, that increases GDP. When the government loans a functionally illiterate dolt $20,000 for college and they spend it on Spring Break in Daytona Beach, that increases GDP. The chart below shows the more than 100% increase in government handouts since 2000. What a boon to GDP as the government extracts money from the producers and hands it to the non-producers.

We are living in hard times. The reason tens of millions of Americans are rejecting the establishment and voting for Trump and Sanders is because of economic hardship. Most Americans have been screwed over by the system and are finally getting fed up. They aren’t exactly sure who screwed them, how they were screwed, or how to stop getting screwed, but they are angry. And someone is going to pay.

The status quo is beginning to get nervous.
Their usual propaganda, scare tactics and misinformation campaigns don’t seem to be working. Rigging the stock market upward may benefit the .01% temporarily, but the games of financial manipulation have a limit – and we are approaching it. As a society we have relied upon debt, delusion and denial for far too long. We have chosen to be willfully ignorant regarding the truth of our predicament. Entire segments of society live under a blanket of lies and hate anyone revealing the truth. Some have begun to speak the truth and will be hated for doing so. A long hot summer of hate is upon us. And that’s the truth.

The American People Have Been Conquered: “Change Through Peaceful Means No Longer Possible”


Americans: A Conquered People: The New Serfs

Paul Craig Roberts

As readers know, I have seen some optimism in voters support for Trump and Sanders as neither are members of the corrupt Republican and Democratic political establishments. Members of both political establishments enrich themselves by betraying the American people and serving only the interest of the One Percent. The American people are being driven into the ground purely for the sake of more mega-billions for a handful of super-rich people.

Neither political party is capable of doing anything whatsoever about it, and neither will.

The optimism that I see is that the public’s support of outsiders is an indication that the insouciant public is waking up. But Americans will have to do more than wake up, as they cannot rescue themselves via the voting booth. In my opinion, the American people will remain serfs until they wake up to Revolution.

Today Americans exist as a conquered people. They have lost the Bill of Rights, the amendments to the Constitution that protect their liberty. Anyone, other than the One Percent and their political and legal servants, can be picked up without charges and detained indefinitely as during the Dark Ages, when government was unaccountable and no one had any rights. Only those with power were safe. In America today anyone not politically protected can be declared “associated with terrorism” and taken out by a Hellfire missile from a drone on the basis of a list of human targets drawn up by the president’s advisers. Due process, guaranteed by the US Constitution, no longer exists in the United States of America. Neither does the constitutional prohibition against the government spying on citizens without just cause and a court warrant. The First Amendment itself, whose importance was emphasized by our Founding Fathers by making it the First Amendment, is no longer protected by the corrupt Supreme Court. The Nine who comprise the Supreme Court, like the rest of the bought-and-paid-for-government, serve only the One Percent. Truth-tellers have become “an enemy of the state.” Whistleblowers are imprisoned despite their legal protection in US law.

The United States government has unaccountable power. Its power is not accountable to US statutory law, to international law, to the Congress, to the judiciary, to the American people, or to moral conscience. In the 21st century the war criminal US government has murdered, maimed, and dislocated millions of people based on lies and propaganda. Washington has destroyed seven countries in whole or part in order to enrich the American elite and comply with the neoconservative drive for US world hegemony.

Americans live in a propaganda-fabricated world in which a brutal police state is cloaked in nice words like “freedom and democracy.” “Freedom and democracy” is what Washington’s war machine brings with sanctions, bombs, no-fly zones, troops, and drones to countries that dare to cling to their independence from Washington’s hegemony.

Only two countries armed with strong military capability and nuclear weapons—Russia and China—stand between Washington and Washington’s goal of hegemony over the entire world.

If Russia or China falter, the evil ensconced in Washington will rule the world. America will be the Anti-Christ. The predictions of the Christian Evangelicals preaching “end times” will take on new meaning.

Russia is vulnerable to becoming a vassal state of Washington. Despite a legion of betrayals by Washington, the Russian government has just proposed a joint US/Russia cooperation against terrorists.

One wonders if the Russian government will ever learn from experience. Has Washington cooperated with the agreement concerning Ukraine? Of course not. Has Washington cooperated in the investigation of MH-17? Of course not. Has Washington ceased its propaganda about a Russian invasion of Crimera and Ukraine? Of course not. Has Washington kept any agreement previous US governments made with Russia? Of course not.

So why does the Russian government think Washington would keep any agreement about a joint effort against terrorism?

The Russian government and the Russian people are so unaware of the danger that they face from Washington that they let foreigners control 20 percent of their media! Is Russia unaware that Washington has Russia slated for vassalage or destruction?

China is even more absurd. According to the Chinese government itself, China has 7,000
foreign-financed NGOs operating in China! Foreign financed NGOs are what Washington used to destabilize Ukraine and overthrow the elected government.

What does the Chinese government think these NGOs are doing other than destabilizing China?

Both Russia and China are infected with Western worship that creates a vulnerability that Washington can exploit. Delusions can result in inadequate response to threat.

All of Europe, both western, eastern and southern, the British Pacific such as Australia and New Zealand, Japan and other parts of Asia are vassal states of Washington’s Empire. None of these allegedly “sovereign” countries have an independent voice or an independent foreign or economic policy. All of Latin America is subject to Washington’s control. No reformist government in Latin America has ever survived Washington’s disapproval of putting the interests of the domestic populations ahead of American corporate and financial profits. Already this year
Washington has overthrown the female presidents of Argentina and Brazil. Washington is currently in the process of overthrowing the government in Venezuela, with Ecuador and Bolivia waiting in the wings. In 2009 Killary Clinton and Obama overthrew the government of Honduras, an old Washington habit.

As Washington pays the UN’s bills, the UN is compliant. No hand is ever raised against Washington. So why does anyone on the face of the earth think that an American election can change anything or mean anything?

We know that Killary is a liar, a crook, an agent for the One Percent, and a warmonger. Let’s now look at Trump.

Are there grounds for optimism about Trump? In the West “news reporting” is propaganda, so it is difficult to know. Moreover, we do know that, at least initially, the response of the Republican Establishment to Trump is to demonize him, so we do not know the veracity of the news reports about Trump.

Without belaboring the issue, two news reports struck me. One is the Washington Post report that the Zionist multi-billionaire US casino owner Sheldon Adelson has endorsed Donald Trump for President. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/sheldon-adelson-i-endorse-donald-trump-for-president/2016/05/12/ea89d7f0-17a0-11e6-aa55-670cabef46e0_story.html

Other reports say that Adelson has mentioned as much as $100 million as his political campaign contribution to Trump.

Anyone who gives a political campaign $100 million dollars expect something in exchange, and the recipient is obligated to provide whatever is desired. So are we witnessing the purchase of Donald Trump? The initial Republican response to Trump, encouraged by the crazed neoconservatives, was to abandon the Republican candidate and to vote for Killary.

Is Adelson’s endorsement a signal that Trump can be bought and brought into the establishment?

Additional evidence that Trump has sold out his naive supporters is his latest statement that Wall Street should be deregulated: https://ourfuture.org/20160519/populist-trump-wants-to-deregulate-wall-street

It is extraordinary that Trump’s advisers have not told him that Wall Street was deregulated back in the 20th century during the Clinton regime. The repeal of Glass-Steagall deregulated Wall Street. One source of the 2008 financial crisis is the deregulated derivative market. When Brooksley Born attempted to fulfill the responsibility of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and regulate over-the-counter derivatives, she was blocked by the Federal Reserve, the US Treasury, the SEC, and the US Congress.

Nothing has been done to correct the massive mistake of financial deregulation. The Dodd-Frank legislation did not correct the massive financial concentration that produced banks too big to fail, and the legislation did not stop Wall Street’s reckless casino gambling with the US economy. Yet Trump says he will dismantle even the weak Dodd-Frank restrictions.

The American print and TV media are so corrupt that these reports could be false stories, the purpose of which is to demoralize Trump’s supporters. On the other hand, should we be surprised if a billionaire aligns with the One Percent?

Elections are an unlikely means of restoring government that is accountable to the people rather than to the One Percent. Even if Trump is legitimate, he does not have the experience in foreign and economic affairs to know who to appoint to his government in order to implement change. Moreover, even if he knew, unless Trump candidates also replace the Senate, Trump could not get his choices confirmed by a Senate accountable only to the One Percent.

Americans are a conquered people. We see this in the appeal from RootsAction to the rest of the world to come to the aid of the American people. Unable to stop the lawlessness of their own “democratic” government, Americans plea for help from abroad: http://act.rootsaction.org/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=12247

The plea from RootsAction indicates that committed activists now acknowledge that change in America cannot be produced by elections or be achieved internally through peaceful means.

Clinton Releases Plan to Dissolve U.S. Border Within 100 Days

Professional Republicans in the #NeverTrump movement continue to oppose the presumptive nominee selected by the GOP electorate and are now floating strategies to throw the election to Hillary Clinton.

However, an examination of Clinton’s campaign promises reveals that Republicans who are willing to thwart Trump in favor of Clinton will be complicit in electing a President who would seek to bring about the complete and, possibly irreversible, dissolution of our nation’s borders.

A review of Clinton’s stated positions on the issue suggests she is perhaps the most extreme candidate on immigration ever to run for the office of the U.S. Presidency. Her views place her even further outside the mainstream of the American electorate than President Barack Obama, who systematically dismantled U.S. immigration law during his two terms in office.

Below are just a few of the extreme immigration positions held by Clinton.

(1) Expanding Unconstitutional Executive Amnesty

Perhaps one of the most radical aspects Clinton’s open borders platform is that she is openly campaigning on defending and even expanding President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesties.

“You can count on me to defend President Obama’s executive actions on DACA and DAPA when I am president,” Clinton said, referring to Obama’s 2012 (DACA) and 2014 (DAPA) executive amnesties, which gave work permits and access to federal benefits to millions of illegal immigrants.

Clinton’s campaign website states that, as President, she will “defend President Obama’s executive actions to provide deportation relief for DREAMers and parents of Americans and lawful residents.” Meaning, Clinton will allow millions of illegal immigrants to remain in the United States, receive work permits to legally fill American jobs, and get access to federal benefits paid for by U.S. taxpayers.

In addition, Clinton’s website says she will “extend those actions to additional persons with sympathetic cases if Congress refuses to act.”

If Congress continues its refusal to act on comprehensive immigration reform, Hillary will put in place a simple, straightforward, accessible system for parents of DREAMers and others with a history of service and contribution to their communities to be able to make their case and be eligible for deferred action as well.

However, as Sen. Jeff Sessions has pointed out, Congress has acted on so-called “comprehensive immigration reform” and it has rejected it. Sessions explains that the reason any executive-ordered amnesty is unconstitutional is because “the President’s action erases the laws Congress has passed in order to implement laws Congress has refused to pass.”

Sessions said that “Congress considered and rejected these changes to immigration law in 2006, 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2014.”

While Clinton is pushing for immigration policies that would expand migration rates, polls show that the American electorate overwhelming wants immigration levels to be frozen or reduced—including 92% of the GOP electorate and 83% of the American electorate overall.

Moreover, according to an October Rasmussen survey, most Americans still oppose Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty. A Kellyanne Conway poll found that by a 2-1 margin, voters believe that illegal immigrants should be encouraged to return home by shutting off their access to U.S. jobs and welfare.

(2) Amnesty Within 100 Days

Clinton has pledged to enact amnesty within her first 100 days in office. As NBC recentlyreported: “If elected, the former secretary of state has promised to build on President Obama’s executive actions and introduce comprehensive immigration reform during her first 100 days in office.”

Clinton’s website has explained that by “comprehensive immigration reform,” Clinton means full citizenship for illegal immigrants, which would give them welfare access, voting privileges, and the ability to bring over their family members through chain migration.

“As president, Hillary will fight for comprehensive immigration reform that provides a full and equal path to citizenship,” Clinton’s website states.

Full amnesty for the illegal immigrant population will cost U.S. taxpayers $6.3 trillion, according to a report from the Heritage Foundation.

Clinton’s pledge for amnesty perhaps explains why she won the endorsement of open borders advocate Luis Gutierrez–who has previously said “I have only one loyalty… and that’s to the immigrant community.”

In return, Clinton has heaped praise on Gutierrez, declaring that “few people have done as much as Luis to make sure that when it comes to America’s policies on immigration, those policies reflect America’s values. He organizes, strategizes, preaches, teaches, inspires, cajoles, whatever it takes to keep this movement moving forward.”

Interestingly, Paul Ryan also won the early endorsement of Gutierrez prior to being elected as House Speaker. As Bretibart News has previously reported, Ryan’s views on foreign migration, foreign trade, and foreign wars are more similar to Hillary Clinton’s views than those of GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

(3) Freezing deportations
Clinton has said that, as President, that she will essentially freeze deportations.

“I would not deport children. I do not want to deport family members either,” Clintondeclared in March. Clinton’s pledge not to enforce U.S. immigration law as President represents an essentially unprecedented departure from the nation’s history of enforcing immigration law.

The Center for Immigration Studies’ Mark Krikorian described Clinton’s pledge as “a breathtaking step toward open borders.”

As the Washington Post reported: “Clinton’s pledge not to deport any illegal immigrants except violent criminals and terrorists represents a major break from President Obama, and it could vastly increase the number of people who would be allowed to stay in the country.”

Clinton’s vision erases entirely the protections that U.S. immigration laws are supposed to afford American citizens: such as protecting Americans from losing a job to an illegal immigrant, preventing the sapping of school and hospital resources, as well as defending the voting privileges and enfranchisement of U.S. citizens (giving citizenship to illegal immigrants allows them to cancel out the votes of native-born American citizens).

The implication of Clinton’s platform– i.e. that illegal entry is not in and of itself a deportable offense–represents a central pillar of the open borders credo: namely, that millions of people can illegally come to the country, take jobs, attend U.S. schools, receive affirmative action, apply for federal benefits, and give birth to children who receive birthright citizenship.

Moreover, waiting until after a violent conviction has been obtained to deport an illegal alien means that immigration laws were enforced far too late–i.e. they were not enforced until after an American was victimized, raped, or murdered by a criminal alien. A federal policy that waits to enforce immigration laws until after there is a criminal conviction would mean admitting and releasing criminals by the hundreds of thousands, and letting them roam free until after they have committed a crime, and have been apprehended, tried, and convicted for that crime.

As Sen. Sessions has explained, immigration laws ought to remove criminal aliens before they are convicted of a violent crime. “Our goal should be to keep 100% of dangerous aliens out of the United States… we need to remove potentially violent offenders before they hurt innocent families—before the irreversible occurs.”

(4) There’s no need to secure the border because it’s already “the most secure border we’ve ever had”

Even as tens of thousands of migrants continue to pour across our southern border, Clinton has declared that the border is “the most secure border we’ve ever had”– suggesting that she does not feel it is necessary to take additional actions to secure it. Clinton argues that since the border is already secure, it is time to give amnesty to the millions of migrants who have entered illegally.

“We have the most secure border we’ve ever had… The Republicans, the opponents, no longer have an argument,” Clinton said during a March CNN/Univision Democratic debate. “We enhanced the border security. That part of the work is done… Everybody who I know who has looked at it says it is OK. We have a secure border. There’s no need for this rhetoric and demagoguery that still is carried out on the Republican side. You’ve run out of excuses. Let’s move to comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship.”

(5) Closing Detention Centers

On her website, Clinton pledges to “end family detention and close private immigrant detention centers”.

“Hillary believes we should end family detention for parents and children who arrive at our border in desperate situations. We have alternatives to detention for those who pose no flight or public safety risk, such as supervised release,” Clinton’s website explains.

This again represents a radical step in further dismantling what little immigration enforcement is now in place. Clinton is essentially saying that she will not detain new incoming illegal immigrants, but will instead release them into the interior of the United States.

(6) Obamacare for illegal aliens
Clinton has repeatedly said that she supports giving Obamacare to illegal immigrants. Clinton’s website says that Clinton wants to “Expand access to affordable health care to all families… She believes we should let families—regardless of immigration status—buy into the Affordable Care Act exchanges.”

Chelsea Clinton echoed this sentiment while campaigning for her mother. “It’s so important to extend the Affordable Care Act to people who are living and working here, regardless of immigration status, regardless of citizenship status,” Chelsea Clinton said in March.

(7) Full path to citizenship
Clinton has pledged to use federal resources to ensure that millions of more foreign migrants are able to vote in U.S. elections:

There are millions of people in America who could be naturalized, but for one reason or another, they’re not. So let’s help more of our neighbors claim their rights. It’s so powerful, so precious, to be a citizen of the United States!

To be able to vote in our elections, to have a voice in our future, and I want to take down the barriers that are holding people back. So here’s a few things I will do: I will work to expand fee waivers, so more people seeking naturalization can get a break on the costs. I will increase access to language programs to help people boost their English proficiency. I will enhance outreach and education so more people know their options and are engaged in the process. I don’t want anyone who could be a citizen to miss out on that opportunity.

Polling data suggests that Clinton’s voter importation plan will overwhelmingly benefit the Democratic Party.

A 2011 Pew survey found that Hispanics have a more negative view of capitalism (55%) than do supporters of Occupy Wall Street (47%). A 2012 Pew Hispanic Center survey found that 75% of Hispanics prefer bigger governments that provide more services as opposed to smaller governments that provide fewer services.

Political scientists have documented how mass immigration helps Democratic politicians. As University of Maryland’s James Gimpel noted: “the enormous flow of legal immigrants into the country — 29.5 million 1980 to 2012 — has remade and continues to remake the nation’s electorate in favor of the Democratic Party.”

Reuters has similarly reported: “Immigrants favor Democratic candidates and liberal policies by a wide margin, surveys show, and they have moved formerly competitive states like Illinois firmly into the Democratic column and could turn Republican strongholds like Georgia and Texas into battlegrounds in the years to come.”

(8) Expanded refugee resettlement

Hillary Clinton has called for a massive expansion in Middle East migration.

As Donald Trump has observed, “Crooked Hillary wants a radical 500% increase in Syrian refugees.”

Indeed, last year Clinton called for admitting 65,000 Syrian refugees—on top of the roughly 30,000 refugees and asylees the U.S. already admits from the Middle East each year. Adding in refugees from across the Muslim world, this means that under Clinton’s plan, the U.S. would admit at least 105,000 thousand refugees from the Muslim world annually.

“I’ll work to ensure that every single refugee who seeks asylum in the United States has a fair chance to tell his or her story, this is the least we can offer people fleeing persecution and devastation,” Clinton said in December.

As Breitbart News has previously reported, below is a more detailed breakdown of Islamic migration that would occur in her first term under the minimum numbers she has put forward thus far:

– 374,000 refugees/asylees from the Middle East during her first term, based on DHS data.

– 420,000 refugees/asylees from the Muslim world during her first term.

– 560,000 permanent migrants from the Middle East during her first term.

– 730,000 permanent migrants from the Muslim world during her first term.

According to a September 2015 Rasmussen survey, only 5% of likely voters said that they wanted the U.S. to admit more than 100,000 refugees from the Middle East.

Women oppose Clinton’s plan to bring more than 100,000 refugees from the Middle East by a remarkable 21-to-1 margin, with 84 percent opposing and four percent supporting.

Democrat voters oppose Clinton’s refugee plan by a 17-to-1 margin with 87 percent opposing and five percent supporting.

Most remarkably, 85 percent of black voters oppose Clinton’s refugee agenda with less than one percent of black voters supporting her plan.
