Defining a "False Flag Event"

One of the terms bandied about alternative media and conspiracy theory sites is "FALSE FLAG EVENT".  What does this mean, exactly, and why is it important to understand it?

A  false flag event is an occurrence that is engineered to sway public opinion.  It's usually an event that is blamed on whatever hapless country the United States wants to declare war upon.  Generally speaking, a false flag event is designed to inflict maximum fear on a group of people, causing them to rally around a specific cause. Learn more about historic military false flag events HERE.

The reason it is important to understand this is because if we cannot recognize these events for what they really are, we can easily be manipulated by those in power.  Many brave soldiers -  our sons and daughters, our mothers and fathers, our friends and family, and courageous strangers unknown to us but fighting for us nonetheless - have been, and will be, sacrificed on the altar of power and money. 

The decisions made by the elite few in government, banking and the oil industry cost lives.  Those lives are not being sacrificed to protect our freedom.  Our real enemies are within our own gates, and they would do anything to distract us from this.

Currently, we are under threat of another false flag event.

The United States needs an enemy to keep her people from realizing that she is being overthrown from within.  The enemy flavor of the month is Iran.

The current administration, aided and abetted by the mainstream media, is preying on the fear of a nuclear event.  Of course everyone is concerned about being nuked off the map!  Such an occurrence could actually be the end of the human race.  And those crazy Iranians are testing their nukes right now....they must be planning to use them on us....we have to stop this!


Independent auditors have said that Iran's nuclear research and capabilities is geared towards providing power for the country - not towards building weapons. Clinton Bastin, formerly of the US Atomic Energy Commission, was interviewed by 21st Century Scientist and went into detail about the goals and capabilities of the country, and also discredits some of the findings of the International Atomic Energy Agency - check out the ARTICLE's full text for more information.

Iran, along with Russia, refuses to accept the US dollar for oil.  Suddenly, alarm bells begin ringing about the nuclear capabilities of Iran and they must be stopped at all costs.

What costs?  Isn't this just another conspiracy theory by anti-government extremists?

Judge for yourself.

~ We are invading Iran's waters despite repeated warnings not to do so.  The USS Enterprise is on Route to the Strait of Hormuz . The Enterprise is a venerable carrier with many years of duty.  So many years that the military had plans to decommission her until this most recent "crisis" arose.  Now, she has been staffed and sent into a zone we have been warned not to enter.  It begs the question - if we are going to war, why wouldn't we send one of our more up-to-date carriers with advanced capabilities?  Doesn't it make you suspect that the Enterprise might just be the most disposable vessel and is destined to end up at the bottom of the sea loaded with 200-300 unfortunate members of our military that the government considers expendable?

If Iran blows up our ship, we are going to have no choice but to go to war.

~ As soon as Iran refused to take US money, the government unleashed all manner of economic sanctions against the small country in an attempt to economically cripple them.  You can read more about it HERE.

~ We're ticking off Iran because Israel says so.  Yep, it's true.  Iran has inflamed the rage of Israel, and since Israeli interests seem to run the United States government through campaign contributions and financial strangleholds.  Israel appears to be calling the shots in this particular engagement.

We can either unify and let the government know that we will not stand for another useless war or we can be dragged off to it like lambs to the slaughter.  We can educate ourselves independently of the mainstream media and we can

CALL BULLSHIT on our government.  The lives of our soldiers are at stake for nothing more than the price of a barrel of oil.  For nothing more than lining the already full pockets of the global elite.  For creating an event that will allow the powerful to stay in power.

Do your research - don't allow yourself to be manipulated into believing the lies of the next false flag event, manufactured for your viewing pleasure by the puppet masters currently running the show.  The pieces have been moved into place - beware.

The States Revolt Against Obama

Another quiet revolution is afoot in the United States of America.  State by state, one by one, Obama is being stricken from the ballots as courtrooms declare him ineligible to be the President of the United States of America.

In Georgia, last week, on Thursday, January 26,  a contempt order was issued when Barack Obama failed to appear in court after being subpoenaed.  There was so little respect for the law of that state that his attorney did not appear either. 

Obama's attorney, Michael Jablonski, wrote the following in a letter proclaiming the defendant's refusal to appear in court:

....we will,of course, suspend further participation in these proceedings, including the hearing scheduled for January 26......

You can read the complete text of Jablonski's response to Georgia's Secretary of State HERE.

Despite the failure of anyone in the Obama camp to appear, the hearing went on as scheduled.   A play by play of the proceedings can be found HERE.  The Cliff's notes version is that the evidence was heard, and with no participation from the defense, appears to be irrefutable.  Judge Michael Mahili has until February 4 to render his decision.

(Patriots:  Consider taking a moment to send an email to Judge Mahili's office to express your gratitude at his willingness to risk his career, and possibly his life, to defend the Constitution and take on the President of the United States.  This is the email address:  mailto:vruff@osah.ga.gov  )

In Alabama, the legal proceedings didn't go as well, as  Judge Helen Shores Lee dismissed the suit, filed by Albert Hendershott, Jr.

Rumour has it that Obama's home state of Illinois will be hosting the next hearing.

Groups are popping up all over the internet to push this envelope.  Join one of them and lend a hand!  Write your members of Congress and ask for a Congressional hearing regarding Obama's Constitutional eligibility to be in, and run for, the Oval Office.

Join Keep Obama Off The 2012 Ballot on Facebook and share the news with all your friends.  Let social media work for US!

Then check out the Obama State Ballot Challenge to see what you can do.  The movement is nothing without activists and patriots who are willing to take a stand!

Thanks, JJ!!!

Mysterious Technical Difficulties Plague Alternative News Sites

Alternative news websites seem to be dealing with a mysteriously increased number of technical issues lately.

Yesterday, the popular alternative site Dprogram.Net - Counteracting Propaganda was out of service for most of the afternoon and early evening, with a message saying only "Account Suspended."  According to the administrator of the site, that's the third time this week they've been offline.

Coincidentally, during the same time Dprogram was offline, WhatReallyHappened also suffered from technical concerns, although the outage was far briefer than that of Dprogram.

No one at the sites has cast any stones or suggested that this is all part of a greater conspiracy to silence the truth as alternative websites see it.  (That's just my personal theory,) However, in conjunction with SOPA, ACTA, and the new Google/CIA commitment to collect and provide information about users, as well as direct traffic to more government-friendly websites, one has to begin wondering.

Please show your support for these great alternative websites by visiting them regularly!  Daily they engage in the fight for free, accurate and uncensored information by publishing stories that the mass media wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. They are true patriots, fighting for freedom through knowledge.

Here are a few more of my favorite sites:



The Intel Hub

Zero Hedge

Info Wars

There are many many more great alternative websites.  Please feel free to share your favorites in the comments section.  The more visits they get the harder it is for mysterious forces to cause them to "disappear."

Obama: I Don't Need No Stinkin' SOPA!!!

Remember how the internet community breathed a deep sigh of relief last week when the House and Senate shelved the SOPA bill due to public outcry?  Remember how Barack Obama vowed to veto the bill if it came across his desk?  Remember how we all suspected that wasn't the last we'd heard of a bill allowing widespread internet censorship?

In one of his sneakiest moves yet, the very same Barack Obama who denounced the SOPA bill had already signed a treaty called the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, which makes SOPA look comparatively tame.  This was signed in OCTOBER of 2011!

Obama did an end run around Congress by signing the treaty without their ratification.  Because the treaty is global, there is absolutely no escaping these laws by running your site from a different country or using proxy servers.  He did this by calling it "an executive agreement" instead of a treaty, thus semantically nullifying the requirement for congressional approval.

The powers of ACTA are far broader than the powers of SOPA, and not just geographically.  ACTA allows copyright holders to insist that ISP providers remove content from the internet without a court order.  The agreement also pushes for the power for copyright holders that feel they have been infringed upon to demand that the violators of the intellectual property have the internet connection removed WITHOUT LEGAL REPRESENTATION.

The sticking point for President Sneaky Pants Obama is this:  an executive agreement cannot be signed if the subject matter is under the purview of the Congress.  Intellectual property, thankfully, is protected in the Constitution in Article One, Section 8, as a topic that is the responsibility of Congress.

This is the next step in the battle for internet freedom.  We know that we can't trust the government-and-big-business-owned mass media.  The internet is truly the only place that we can research and learn from alternative independent sources.  The government is controlling all of the information we receive from other sources - it is vital that we keep our internet free of censorship.

Write your congresspersons and let them know your feelings on this.  Let them know that you insist that this be treated as a matter for Congressional ratification.

You can find the email address of your members of Congress HERE.

Open Letter to Google

Dear Google:

Well, you've done it now.  You've really ticked me off and I am breaking up with you.

Just because you are bigger than everyone else, it doesn't mean that I'm going to tolerate you bullying me and controlling me.

You have changed from being my friend, someone I could look to for answers, into being someone who tries to protect me from the truth "for my own good."  You have become a tool for the advancement of communism.

An example, you ask?

What about the fact that when I use you to search for information, you only provide me with the information YOU want me to have?  Despite the fact that Infowars and Prison Planet get more hits than many of the mainstream news affiliates, their information no longer comes up unless I specifically ask for them.  Google, you have actually removed Infowars from your aggregator system in an effort to censor what I read!!!!  Because of government pressure, even though the SOPA bill has been shelved, you are doing your own version of SOPA by blacklisting sites that do not toe the party line.

Google, you aren't my father.  I don't need you to sift through the information available and decide what I should be reading.  If you can't lay it out there and give me all of the pertinent information I'm requesting, you aren't someone that I want to be with.

Furthermore, Google, I believe that you are spying on me.  Don't try and deny it.  When I disable cookies in my control panel, I get messages from you saying I cannot access my own  blog without them.  This blog is my intellectual property and you have no right whatsoever to keep me from it.  But suddenly, it seems, I must permit you to spy on me and plant things in my computer to have access to my own blog. 

And there's more, Google.  Imagine my dismay when I read that you are considering policing us all by gathering information about "thought crimes".  Your possessiveness of my mind has to end.  I'm allowed to study things that interest me, like government conspiracies, the safety of the vaccines that I'm urged to give my children, or the veracity of current global warming theories.  Not only are you planning to "tell" on me for studying these things, you are planning on providing me with only the information YOU want me to have.  It's true....I read it HERE!!! You are pretending to be my friend when you are actually in the back pocket of the greedy elite like George Creepy Soros.

My fury with you, Google, is unmatched.  I refuse to be with someone who doesn't respect my intelligence as a person, who does not allow me the privilege of reading all of the information and sifting through it myself, and who has so little respect for my intellectual curiosity that they would provide me only with propaganda.

So, Google, this is how it is.

I'm leaving you.

I've found a new search engine.  I'm with startpage.com now, and you're just going to have to deal with it.  Yes, startpage may be a little slower and may not provide the same results, but at least I know that startpage can be trusted, unlike you, dear Google.

I've cancelled the ads on my blog - you can keep your money.  I'd write this blog on a pile of diner napkins and air drop them before I'd continue to take money from you.  Your ads, while lining my pockets, are also just a way for you to keep me under your thumb, abiding by your rules.

I'm searching for a new host for my blog because of your controlling ways.  It may not happen today or tomorrow, but I can easily foresee the day in which you begin censoring what I write, and that simply will not be tolerated.

I've removed your toolbar from my computer.  Yes, Google, it's packed up in a box and I'll leave it on the porch for you if you want to pick it up.  Otherwise, it goes out with the garbage on Friday.  I want nothing from you left in my computer.

It's over Google.

DHS: Rightwing Extremism is on the Rise

There's a new conspiracy theory in town, and this one has been created by the government.  The Department of Homeland Gestapo Security has released a 10 page report outlining the next great threat to the United States government. 

Ummmm......apparently it's us.

The report is a mix of so-called conspiracy theories described in language that makes them seem irrational.

For example:

Anti-government conspiracy theories and "end time" prophecies could motivate extremist individuals and groups to stockpile food, ammunition and weapons.

Right-wing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of US jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures.  Anti-Semitic extremists attribute these losses to a deliberate conspiracy conducted by a cabal of Jewish financial "elites".

Because debates over Constitutional rights are intense, and parties on all sides have deeply held, sincere but vastly divergent beliefs, violent extremists may attempt to co-opt the debate and use the controversy as a radicalization tool.

....A correlation may exist between the potential passage of gun control legislation and increased hoarding of ammunition, weapons stockpiling and paramilitary training activities among right wing extremists.

The ten page report goes on to group together returning veterans, neo-Nazi skinheads, and anti-government conspiracy theorists as radical dangers to the United States government. 

The report concludes with a plea for information from the readers of this document to collect details about the suspicious activities of one's neighbors and immediately report them to the appropriate authorities.  It is complete with telephone numbers and contact numbers for the FBI, the DHS, and the NOCFusion email address.

This report attempts to take the  valid concerns of Americans and twist them into something crazy and extreme.  It is an effort to paint those of us who consider the Constitution the guiding document of law in our country as nutcases hiding behind trees in an attempt to pick off politicians.  It takes our very legitimate concerns about the state of our country and its leadership and trivializes those concerns into the rants of a bunch of kooks.  Decrying our veterans is a thinly veiled attack on groups like The Oathkeepers and The John Birch Society.

However, I think this piece of blatant propaganda is good news.


"They" know that we have their number.  "They" are scared.  "They" know that their limits have been exceeded and that the people are ready to stand up and say, "NO MORE."

This is a last-ditch effort on the part of an unConstitutional government to marginalize those of us who would defy the efforts to clamp down on the personal liberties this country was built on. 

Today, I intend to chatter angrily on the internet, arrange my cans of stockpiled food and organize my personal armory.  Later I might also walk the dog and participate in an encrypted conversation with a friend who is a veteran.  I also need to theorize about some more conspiracies.

Long live the revolution!

Just Let Them Vote...It's Not Like It Will Change Anything

As an American voter, do you ever get the feeling that you are being given a vote just so you feel like you have a say in what is going on in your country?  Do you ever think that the privelege of voting has become a condescending pat on the head, like a small child sitting on the lap of an adult and holding the steering wheel being told he is "driving"? Are the "powers that be" just humoring us to keep us quiet until their agenda is satisfied and their next puppet is in place in the Oval Office?

The Charlestown Post and Courier carried the story today that over 900 of the voters that allegedly voted were............


Those folks are not just a little sleepy.  We aren't calling them lethargic.  Legally dead, duly buried and only voting if they are doing it through a medium.

The Department of Motor Vehicles began comparing records of death certificates with the State Election Commission voting records, and interestingly enough, they've found more than 900 of said voters who are deceased.

It's amazing how this can happen in a state that REQUIRES PHOTO ID to vote!!!

The electoral process in the United States is severely compromised.  In every state that has had a primary, there have been questions about the veracity of the numbers.

How can the people trust the process that is proven to be as rife with corruption as Washington DC itself?

It was astonishing that Gingrich won the South Carolina primary, despite the interviews with his former wife that reflected horribly on his character (or lack thereof), despite the fact that he cancelled an appearance because nobody showed up to listen to him speak, despite the fact that straw polls put RON PAUL in the lead and Gingrich third to Romney.

Not only are there dead folks voting, but the entire vote in S.C. was taken electronically.  One witness said that when the votes were tallied he was not allowed to be in the same room, but had to watch the tally via a projector.

Working backwards, The Des Moines Register has announced that there are so many "missing" votes that there is no way the results in Iowa can ever be officially certified. So that primary too, is compromised.

Project Veritas volunteers in New Hampshire tested the voting system during the primaries and were given ballots when using the names of dead constituents, so apparently the dead get to vote legally in that state as well. The votes in that state have been recounted several times with several different results, rendering those results untrustworthy as well.

The electoral system is so broken that it appears to be utterly worthless. The only way to take back the elections is by going back to paper ballots and having people from each campaign responsible for hand counting the votes.  Verified photo ID must be shown.  In this day of computers and credit checks there is absolutely a fraud-resistant way to confirm the identity of the voters.

We must take back the electoral process or we will end up with another puppet to the elite with the preordained agenda of the ending the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.

What can you do to help?  I'm always a proponent of letter-writing and email campaigns.  Volunteer to do everything you can to help out with your local elections and if you see something that isn't right say something about it and don't stop saying it until everybody hears you.  Take part in the process in your area and resolve to do your part to keep the elections clean, whether or not your personal favorite candidate is the winner.  Encourage others to do the same. 

Be loud and be heard.  Let's endeavour to  keep the rest of the elections fair and accurate.  If we are not the watchdogs, who will be?

Who Will Fire the First Shot?

Yesterday, we had a little history lesson regarding the Battle of Lexington Green, the first battle of the First Revolutionary War.

Today, I want to talk about the present, where it seems that we are right on the cusp of the Second Revolution.

Take yourself back in time and imagine those early patriots, standing their ground on one side of the bridge against the British.  They were out-manned.  They were out-gunned.  They were not trained.  They were an assortment of farmers and merchants and tradesmen who had just been roused out of bed by the ringing of the church bells, and they were determined to keep the British from invading their settlement, taking their food and disarming them. 

Someone had the courage to fire that very first shot...."the shot heard 'round the world."  Historical accounts are not in agreement with which revolutionary soldier fired the shot....but someone had the courage to do it.  With lead and powder, that man said, "Enough."

Today, our liberties are vanishing at a mind-boggling speed.  There is a lot of hue and cry, but for so many years, we have been conditioned to obey, to follow the laws and to respect authority, that nobody has yet stood up to say, "Enough."

The problem that I see is a lack of leadership and organization in today's Patriot Movement.  Nobody wants to be responsible for firing the first shot in this war...and it is most assuredly war.

The government is plowing over the people like an armored tank over a dirt road, simply driving right over anything and anyone in their way.  They have hardly paused in their hostile takeover of our liberties because we have not yet banded together to stop them.  We have not fought back.

Everyone knows that the election in South Carolina was rigged.  Newt Gingrich had so few supporters there two days ago that he cancelled an appearance and suddenly he was the clear and marked winner?  Everyone knows that despite the fact the Congress has shelved the SOPA bill, they are still censoring the internet, with examples like forcing Google to remove Infowars from it's search engines and disabling commenting ability on some of the mainstream media sites.  Everyone knows that the media is complete owned by the government and special interest groups, thus feeding the people absolutely nothing but propaganda.

And yet, we sit, waiting for someone to fire the first shot.

What are we waiting for?

Are we waiting for the day the Internet goes dark?

Are we waiting for the next false flag event?

Are we waiting for martial law to be declared?

Are we waiting until government thugs show up to seize our guns?

The time is now.  We must fight for our rights before these things occur, because when the streets are lined with American soldiers on one side and ordinary citizens on the other, the loss of life will be tremendous.  The fear of those who have never had a gun aimed at them will be palpable, and the potential for many to bow to an unholy authority will be too great.

We must make as much noise as possible and refuse to tolerate the unconstitutional deeds that occur on a daily basis.  We must rouse our neighbours to stand beside us as we face off against those who would take our food, our families and our freedom.

Our first shot may not be one of lead and powder, but it needs to be fired.  If you are reading this, and you agree that the government is spiralling out of control, you ARE the resistance.

Where Did All the Patriots Go?

Once upon a time, in 1775, a shot was fired across the North Bridge in Lexington, Massachusetts.

That shot was fired from the hunting rifle of an early American farmer and began the Battle of Lexington Green to defend against the British invasion that put food and families at risk.

The first American Revolution was fought by ordinary men, fathers and sons roused from their sleep by the peal of church bells and the beat of drums.  They sought nothing more than to defend their homes and families from the invasion and subjugation of the British army. 

The early colonists who fought this fight were looking for freedom from unfair taxation, freedom from being jailed for voicing dissent against the British, and freedom to make decisions, without restrictions imposed by an imperial government looking for money earned by American sweat.

Today, are we looking for anything different?

The United States government raises taxes without regard to the input of the people.  Over 40,000 new laws were passed in 2011, making it difficult to step out your front door without committing some type of infraction. Indeed, the government is now even in our homes, installing mandatory Smart Meters to monitor our usage of electricity, proposing bills to monitor our internet and media freedoms, and passing the notorious NDAA so that they can haul away dissenting American citizens in the middle of the night without regard for the principles that our nation was founded on.  The government is going after one right after another as the attack on our Constitution grows.

Nearly 240 years ago regular people fought against overwhelming odds to provide the freedoms that we have enjoyed.

Now we are being invaded again.  Now our liberty is again at risk.

Where are the Patriots of today?  What shots are being fired against the tyranny of the US government?  When are the ordinary people of our country going to stand up, despite the odds, and reclaim our legacy of freedom, fought and won through blood soaking into our soil so many years ago.?

A shot must be fired before it's too late.  The time for revolution is now.  Don't let your grandchildren wonder, "Where did all the Patriots go?" 

The unborn Americans of tomorrow deserve the freedoms that have been fought and won before.

The battle has begun.  Will you stand up and fight?

Note: This post was inspired by a true friend and a genuine patriot who challenges me to read and learn..and then learn some more....you know who you are....thanks.

The Enemy Expatriation Act: Could YOU Be a Target?

Flashback to the Third Reich.

I hope you didn't breathe a sigh of relief when President Obama promised not to use the power of the NDAA, also known as the Indefinite Detainment Act, against US citizens.  You may be as American as Granny's apple pie but it doesn't mean you are safe. 

Currently on the table in the House of Representatives (HR 3166) and the Senate ( S 1698) is the Enemy Expatriation Act.  This venomous bit of legislation joins hands with the unPatriot Act and the NDAA to allow the United States government to strip Americans of their citizenship.

Why would they want to do that?  Well, there has to be a way to silence the dissenters.  This bill bears and eerie resemblance to a bill passed by the Third Reich in Germany in 1935.  The Nuremberg Laws took away the citizenship of German people based on race, blood type or dissent against Hitler's regime.  The Expatriation Act threatens to take away citizenship of Americans for "engaging in, or purposefully and materially supporting, hostilities against the United States."

The very ambiguity of this law, especially when added to the other unconstitutional acts that have recently and rapidly come to pass, should strike fear into the heart of any patriotic American.  For something as simple as DISAGREEING WITH YOUR GOVERNMENT you might be considered hostile.  For donating to the campaign of a constitutionalist, you might be considered hostile.  Other hostile acts that could label one a terrorist as per the DHS Gestapo could include having more than two weeks worth of stored food in your home, engaging is discourse on the internet regarding the state of the union, or even purchasing ammunition for your personal firearm.

This is another step down the slippery slope to a police state with total domination by the government.  It sneakily attempts to circumvent the exceptions put forth on previous bills to set at ease the minds of the people.  Their very diligence in finding ways to get around the arguments of the American people should make you very very uneasy. The conspiracy has ceased to be a theory and is now, simply an evident fact.

Paranoia is no longer a sign of a lack of rationality - it is the only sane reaction to the acts of a government gone insane.

SOPA Bill Is Shelved: Score ONE for the People!!!

Massive pressure from the people has caused a veto threat from Washington regarding the treacherous "SOPA" bill. (Stop Online Piracy Act).  The public outcry was big enough that congress has shelved the bill, which was nothing more than a slippery slide towards internet censorship....

Check out the details at SHTFplan

This is a victory for the voices of the people.  It's a victory for every person who wrote to his or her members of congress.  It's a victory for every person that shared blog posts and articles regarding the loss of freedom.  It's a victory for social media users whose hue and cry inundated the net.

Remember this!  Let's keep the momentum of this victory going and continue the fight against those who would silence us.

Public Enemy #1: The Mass Media

There is an enemy infiltrating nearly every home in North America.

Even your own.

More than likely, you have invited this enemy into your home, right into your living room.  You've introduced the enemy to your entire family and the enemy is likely someone you all trust.

The enemy is the mainstream media. 

The places that most of us trust to get our news are compromised.  They have sold out to the highest bidders and those bidders are the ones who control what we see.

Here are some examples for you:

GENERAL ELECTRIC:  Worth 157 billion in annual revenue, GE owns a large portion of NBC, MSNBC, 22 local TV stations and Universal Pictures

WALT DISNEY: The house of mouse, earning just over $36 per year,  owns ABC, 277 radio stations, Touchstone, Miramax and Pixtar.

NEWS GROUP: This 30 billion dollar a year entity owns FOX, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, TV Guide, Barrons, and Smart Money, not to mention 20th Century Fox and HarperCollins Publishing.

TIME WARNER: Bringing in a cool $25 billion per year, Time Warner is the largest media conglomerate in the world.  They own: CNN, HBO, Cinemax, America Online, TBS, TNT, Warner Brothers Pictures, and more than 150 magazines, including some particularly respected ones like Time, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated.

VIACOM:  At a "mere" $13.6 billion a year, Viacom owns Global, MTV, VH-1, Nickelodeon, and Paramount Pictures.

CBS Corp:  And rounding out the Big Six with an annual income of $13 billion per year, CBS owns, obviously, CBS, as well as Showtime, CBS Radio and book publisher Simon and Schuster.

So lets look at this with a neutral eye for a moment.  None of these outlets are present for the good of the people.  They are worth billions and billions of dollars.  They are the king of all special interest groups because they want to keep those billions rolling in.

Look at how much airspace is covered above.  Every major news outlet in North America is part of this elite group.  The TV programs and movies that color our perceptions and opinions through popular culture are in these groups.  Everything you listen to is programmed by these elite special interest groups with extreme bias towards their own pocket. Their slant is what ever the government regulators tells them it is.

If you had billions of dollars coming in every year, and the ability to jaundice the public eye, who trusted you and believed what you said, would you be looking out for your own best interests or everyone else's?

If you could sway public opinion by simply NOT PROVIDING THEM WITH INFORMATION and it would help keep those dollars rolling in, would you do it?

If you could select the next President of the United States, thereby keeping on the good side of the White House, merely by PROVIDING BIASED INFORMATION TO THE PUBLIC, would you do it?

If you could decide what the people should know and what they shouldn't, therefore changing their perception of current events, would you do it?

Further analysis of the Big Six media companies makes it very clear why they have a political agenda.....the almighty dollar, of course.  If the wrong candidate claims the presidency, literally BILLIONS of dollars  can be lost during the course of his or her administration.  The Boards of Directors of these companies also have a vested interest in furthering their own ends.  Media is power.

The media has now become a monster of propaganda, sharing what The Powers That Be want the people to know, skewing public perceptions of reality and persuading them that all things are done benevolently in their own best interests. The investigative journalist putting his or her life at risk to inform the public is now an almost mythical creature found only on a few alternative news sites and in the unicorn forest.

The people of America are being misled and manipulated by the special interests of the boards of directors of these companies.  It's an incestuous spiderweb of the theoretical "1%".  Policies that serve the best interests of these rich and powerful people are not the policies that serve the bests interests of the rest of America.  But because these are the people that sign the paychecks for the network employees, they are also the people that call the shots.  The ties to government, big banking and global policies like Agenda 21 are clear.  The principals in the race for a new world order are all present, and with the help of the weapon of media, they plan to take over the world by controlling the thoughts and opinions of the people.

General Electric, the biggest of the Big Six, is heavily invested in military manufacturing.  The company produces the engines for many planes, tanks, and helicopters, including the F-16, the UCAV, the Abrams tank and the Apache.  A cut in military spending would not bode well for the profit of the company.  GE needs a warmonger in office to keep them rolling in blood money.  The Board of Directors includes Jeffrey Immelt, the head of President Obama's Economic Advisory Committee; former US Senator Sam Nunn, who is also the CEO of The Nuclear Threat Initiative; Rochelle Lazurus, also a director of Merck and Co pharmaceuticals; and James Tisch, who also serves on the board of New York's Federal Reserve and chairs the board of governors for the Jewish Agency for Israel.

Walt Disney is really specific to the entertainment sector.  Disney sells media entertainment, toys and travel.  Disney needs the money to continue flowing through second mortgages and unsustainable lending practices to continue their success.  Disney sells 100%  "wants"......if the Fed was forced to stop printing money at will, flexible spending would grind to a halt almost immediately. Many of Disney's board members have close ties with big banking, meaning they are the ones who help sink people into debt by offering them more and more "credit", miring them deeper into debt slavery.  John S. Chen serves on the board of Wells Fargo; Fred Langhammer is on the boards of AIG and Shinsei Bank Ltd.; Monica Lozano is a director of Bank of America;  Robert Maschullet is the former CEO of Morgan Stanley Investments; and Sheryl Sandberg is the former Chief of Staff of the US Treasury Dept. and an economist with the World Bank.

News Corp, Time Warner, CBS and Viacom, the other members of the Big Six, are invested solely in media and entertainment.  Much like Disney, if the fiat money dries up, these companies are toast.  If people are struggling to feed their families, they aren't too likely to spend money on things like cable television and movies.

The VIACOM board of directors include such big names as Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve, sports magnate Robert Kraft, and Sumner Redstone, who is also the primary stockholder in CBS.

News Corp's board of directors is equally illustrous in it's connections.  Natalie Bancroft hails from the Dow Jones empire; James W. Breyer serves on the board of Wal-Mart;Viet Dinh, formerly of South Vietnam, whose colorful resume includes his stint as the US Attorney General as well as masterminding the USA Patriot Act; James and Lachlan Murdoch, sons of Rupert Murdoch who was notoriously accused for unethical journalism practices and brought before the English Parliament in 2011; John L. Thornton is the former CEO of Goldman Sachs and on the boards of Ford Motor Company, Intel, HSBC and China Netcom.

Time Warner has a board of directors with many global connections......for example:  Jessica Einhorn has served as an advisor for the IMF (International Money Fund) and held executive positions at the World Bank and is currently also a director at the Center for Global Development; Stephen Bollenbach is also a director of the Los Angelos World Affairs Council; Frank J Caufield is also a director of the US Russia Investment Fund and the founder of KCPB, one of the biggest venture capital firms in the US; and Mathias Dopfner, CEO of Germany's largest newspaper.

CBS of course, is headed up by Sumner Redstone, who, as mentioned earlier is also the primary stockholder in Viacom.  Some of the powerful directors of CBS include former congressman and Secretary of Defense William S Cohen; chairman emeritus and director of Bank of America Charles K. Gifford; and Joseph Califano, who served as President Lyndon B Johnson's Assistant for Domestic Affairs, and later as the US Secretary of Health, Welfare and Education.

This is why you can't trust what you see on the mainstream media.  The "news" is now all a propaganda ploy to help the rich get richer and the powerful remain in power.  The media can make or break a candidate with unholy zeal in less than a week.  These people and others like them are the ones that decide what "we the people" get to see.  If they feel like a candidate or a news item might upset the status quo, they black it out by refusing to cover it.  (Ron Paul and Occupy Wall Street are two prime examples of this.)

What can you do about this?

When you see coverage that is clearly biased, take a moment to call out the media about it.  Take the time to comment on mainstream media websites and point out the unbalanced coverage.  Promote alternative news outlets and always, always research for yourself to find the truth of the matter.  Write letters to the editor of your local paper, tell everyone you know and make your voice heard.

Tell everyone you know that mainstream media is the enemy of the people.

Media Blackout of the Day: Occupy Protests NDAA

Today was a big news day for Occupy Wall Street......except, somehow, it wasn't.

In Grand Central Station an OWS group gathered to protest the NDAA, making use of their Constitutional rights of freedom of speech and freedom of peaceful assembly.  Subsequently, a petite young woman who has been identified as Laura Digioia was literally carried away by several hulking police officers.

When making my rounds of the alternative news sites like SHTFplan and Alt-Market, they were all abuzz regarding this latest attack on the Bill of Rights.  When I checked on CNN, Fox and the other mass media sites, I found NOTHING.  Ditto.  Zilch.  Didn't even happen.

Freedom of the press is apparently dead as far as the mainstream media is concerned.  These companies have become nothing more than a vehicle of propaganda, owned by special interest groups and the government.  Unless the Powers That Be want something or someone exposed, gone are the days of the intrepid investigative journalist who will stop at nothing to fill the people in on the truth.

Equally as horrifying as the NDAA (The Indefinite Detainment bill) is the reality that the people with an occupational duty to inform the public have simply rolled over and given up.  Journalistic integrity is a thing of the past.  They haven't even put up a fight about this loss of rights, and they make every effort to aid the government in their cover-up. Does this mean that instead of being bullied into silence they actually just sold out and became the verbal prostitutes of the government?

An important course of action is to find alternate sources of information.  The "news" that you are receiving from the MSM (mainstream media) is simply the watered-down gruel the government wants you to have.  You are being spoonfed the big government advertisement that every right they take away from you is really just for your own good. You are being lulled into a false sense of security.  You are being programmed who to vote for.  You are being hypnotized by Big Brother himself so that you will no longer even consider questioning authority.

It's up to YOU to search out the truth for yourself, and to spread that information around to anyone who will listen.  Think critically about the news you receive and check multiple sources for the veracity.  Then spread the word.

Debate Coverage Debacle - the Paul Blackout Continues...

Yet again, it appears that the mainstream media has voluntarily surrendered their freedom of the press to bring home a paycheck.

I didn't get to watch yesterday's GOP debate live, so this morning I checked the mainstream media sources to read their coverage.  I checked ABC, FOX, NBC, CNN, Yahoo, and MSN.  It wasn't until I specifically googled the search string "Ron Paul New Hampshire Debate" that I found information regarding his performance.

In the first 25 minutes of the debate, only one question was directed towards Dr. Paul.

Every online poll I could find said Dr. Paul was the clear winner of the debate, and yet I had to SEARCH HIS NAME to find coverage.  The focus was on Romney and his plastic smile, and then all of the other candidates, all of whom are BEHIND Dr. Paul in the polls in New Hampshire.

This media blackout is so very blatant that it feels like our coverage is censored like television in Communist Russia.  Everything we see in the media is such utter propaganda that it is clear the media is attempting to undermine Dr. Paul's campaign.

The thing that gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach is that voters trust the mainstream media.  Most people consider CNN to be the final authority for news.  People watch the news to learn what is going on in the world, but most folks aren't going to search for the answers.  They will believe what the press spoonfeeds them, and what the press is saying by ignoring Dr. Paul is that his campaign is not worthy of attention.

Dr. Paul's campaign must be won through alternative media.  The beauty of 2012 is that there are so many ways to get the word out.  If you are a Paul supporter, use your voices to reach as many people as possible regarding the unfair, biased coverage.

~  Comment after articles on the mainstream media websites (if you read through, you will see some from me!!!)
~  Forward this blog and others like it to the contacts on your email lists
~  Post a status on Facebook stating "The media can no longer be trusted with fair and accurate reporting. Please research the GOP candidates independantly of the news sites and you will see why you should cast your vote for Ron Paul."
~  Donate and involve yourself in the campaign.
~  Write letters to your local media, the media companies and your local paper letting them know you are angry about the media bias!
~  "Tweet" if you "Twitter"

Ron Paul for President in 2012......elect him DESPITE the status quo!

Obama's Thought Gestapo

With all of the hubbub about the passing of the NDAA, a couple of little things have slid in under the radar from the desk of President Obama.

On January 4th, he rolled out the carpet for the new Bureau of Counterrorism. Apparently this shiny new expenditure of taxpayer dollars serves "no greater responsibility than to protect the American people."

Phew.  I guess we can all breathe a sigh of relief now.

Uh-oh...hang on to that sigh......a fact sheet released by the federal government more fully outlines the department, using the vague and open-to-interpretation language we are all becoming accustomed to.  Read it yourself and see if you get that warm and cozy feeling of security or if you get that itchy feeling on the back of your neck that you are witnessing the creation of a thought Gestapo.

My biggest concern comes from this section:

Countering violent extremism:  To defeat terrorists, we must undermine their ability to recruit.  The Bureau of Counterterrorism will focus the State Department in US government counter violent extremism......will work to delegitimize the violent extremist narrative, to develop positive alternatives for populations vulnerable to recruitment, and to build partner government and civil society capacity to counter violent extremism themselves.

In that section alone, I read this......

We, the government must defeat the insurgents by undermining their ability to spread the word about what we are doing.  The Bureau will focus on getting rid of people who make too much noise....will work to censor their message on the internet, in print and over the airwaves.....will endeavour to program young people to believe that we alone are looking out for their best interests......and will strive to convince the populace that those fighting for their freedom are the enemy, and must be destroyed.

The government of the United States is striving to induce Stockholm Syndrome in it's citizens.  Stockholm Syndrome is defined as " the extraordinary phenomena in which captives begin to identify with and grow sympathetic towards their captors."  When you are dependant on one source for food, shelter and permission for anything that you do, you begin to see that source as something to be revered.  You begin to feel sheltered by your very captor, as they lull you into a sense that they alone are caring for you.

When you add this new bureau to all of the rights claimed by the government through the NDAA, you can clearly begin to see the pieces falling into place for even more enslavement.  We are now at risk from the opinion police and disagreement could be very hazardous to one's health and well-being.

Let it be known that we are smarter than that.  Let it be known that we will not be drawn into a net of captivity "for our own good".    We can teach our own children, we can think critically and we can defend our liberties, as they are God-given natural rights, and not privileges extended by the government.

No thanks, State Department. We don't need another branch of the Obama Thought Gestapo.

A Declaration of the People

This post was written by an anonymous patriot who has asked that it be shared.  You will see this all over the internet, and if you are like me, you will get a shiver of pride reading these words that resonate from the heart of the people..... (a special thanks to RWS3 for sharing this with me!)

We are anonymous.
We ask that you post the following in public places

Whereas, on the 14th of December, 2011, the House of Representatives of these United States voted in favor of indefinite military detention, without charges, of any American, anywhere, anytime, without due process of law, at the discretion of the government alone;

Whereas, on the 15th of December, 2011, the Senate of these United States voted in favor of the same bill;

Whereas, the proscription against the use of military force to police the populous has been an essential feature of American civic life and civic liberty since the arrival of our civilization upon this continent;

Whereas, the wanton violation of this proscription was one of the chief causes of the separation of the American peoples from their government in Great Britain;

Whereas, the Constitution so chartering the government of these United States does not grant this power;

Whereas, the Constitution forbids the addition of any power not enumerated to the general government;

Whereas, the use of such draconian measures has been an essential feature of the enforcement of tyranny by totalitarian governments of the 20th century, including, but not limited to, the Nationalist-Socialist government of Germany, the fascist government of Italy, the government of the United Soviet Socialist Republics, and the government of Vietnam;

Whereas, the use of such draconian measures is carefully calculated to quash all political dissent amongst a captive people;

Whereas, the codification of such draconian measures effectively nullifies all civil liberties the people may hope to hold;

Whereas, the codification of such draconian measures are the last act in the quest to hold a people captive to the rapacious will of their government without recourse;

And whereas, the codification of such draconian measures is an act of war against the populous at large;

Therefore, be it declared that a STATE OF WAR formally exists between the Government of these United States and the People of these United States.

We, the People of these United States, declare any and all attempts to enforce the provisions of HR 1540 to be unlawful, void, and of no force.
We, declare ALL WHO voted in favor of HR 1540, and ALL WHO attempt to enforce HR 1540 to be traitors to these United States, punishable under law.
We, SHALL DISOBEY, APPREHEND, OR RESIST WITH DEADLY FORCE, in our discretion, any person who attempts to enforce the provisions of HR 1540.
We, SHALL NOT aggress against any employee of any American government who shall not attempt to enforce or aid and abet the enforcement of HR 1540, they being as trapped as the rest of the populous.

Such STATE OF WAR shall continue until HR 1540 is stricken from the code of law, and all who had hand in HR 1540 are brought to justice under due process of law.

Signed and witnessed by we, the individual citizens of these United States, below:

The Obama Manifesto?

In 1848, Karl Marx, with the help of Friedrich Engels and the Communist League, published The Communist Manifesto.  In this pamphlet, Marx outlined the 10 principles of Communism.

Today, in 2012, the Obama administration, aided and abetted by the Congress, seems to be aiming our country more towards those principles while trampling all over the standards laid out by the US Constitution.

1.) ABOLITION OF PRIVATE PROPERTY  More and more homes are being lost to foreclosure every day.  Property taxes are skyrocketing, while property values decrease.  If you think you actually own your home or place of business, try going for a year without paying your taxes.  The government simply lets you use the building, and charges you rent via the taxes.

2.) PROGRESSIVE TAX Progressive tax increases an individual's taxation level as their income increases, then distributes these funds to the less fortunate.   Under the current administration, entitlement spending has been the fastest growing sector of government spending.

3.)  ABOLITION OF RIGHTS OF INHERITANCE Obama supported an increase in federal estate tax rates to 45%. After lengthy squabbling it was settled at 25%. However, in 2013, if the tax is not repealed, it could rise immediately to as high as 55%.  Some states also have their own estate tax.

4.)  CONFISCATION OF THE PROPERTIES OF EMIGRANTS AND REBELS It remains to be seen what will happen to the property of those detained under the NDAA, but I know where I'd put my money if I was a betting person.

5.)  A CENTRAL BANK Can you say "Federal Reserve"?  Further, with the bailouts, the "too big to fail" banks are all funded by the US government anyway.

6.)  GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP OF COMMUNICATION AND TRANSPORTATION The NDAA considers the internet an "operation domain".    This allows the Department of Defense "upon direction by the President may conduct offensive operations in cyberspace." We can't forget PCNAA (Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act) which is also called the "Internet Kill Switch" bill.   If SOPA passes, even more restrictions will occur.  As for transportation, if you travel by air, prepare to be molested by thugs.  Coming soon?  TSA in your local train and bus stations.

7.)  GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP OF FACTORIES AND AGRICULTURE Corn subsidies, automotive bailouts, and rigorous manufacturing and FDA restrictions are the way that the government is currently controlling the goods produced in the United States.

8.)  GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF LABOR The working class cannot profit from their labor if the government taxes them excessively.  As more and more American jobs are shipped overseas, the government exercises more control over the jobs that are available.  The high debtloads encouraged for most American families through overlending means that there aren't as many options to retire early, work part time, or be self-employed.

9.)  CORPORATE FARMS AND REGIONAL PLANNING "Food Modernization" bills mean less freedom for farmers to provide options like organic goods.  The pressure to use GMO seeds to receive the government subsidies could also mean a staggering famine in the near future, which plays into the revolving scenario of more dependency on the government.

10.)  GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF EDUCATION When the government supplies the funding for education, they also make the rules.  The current administration is taking steps to waive student loans and to grant billions more in educational dollars via Pell grants to allow more young people to attend college.  This comes with another price tag:  a student's course of study must meet the administrations rigorous restrictions.

Somehow things in the United States have gone horribly awry.  It would be difficult for the country to get much further away from our own founding document, the Constitution.

You Say You Want a Revolution......

Quiet revolutions are springing up everywhere.  There is an uprising afoot that is challenging the new laws because people from all walks of life are saying......


to the United States government.

For example......

HACKERS UNITE.....  With the threat of the SOPA bill making time short, hackers around the world are feverishly working to create a fallback internet infrastructure that cannot be censored.  The Hackerspace Global Grid is being created by some of the best minds in cyberspace.

OVER 100 MILLION FEWER AIR TRAVELERS........Statistics right from the US government show a distinct drop in air travel between 2000 and 2011.  As the TSA Gestapo increases their sexual assault against passengers, more people are choosing other methods of travel,  This definitely affects the economy, as American Airlines is just the latest in a long list to go belly up since 9/11.

MONTANA BEGINS THE PROCESS TO RECALL CONGRESSMEN......After the atrocity of the NDAA passed both the House and the Senate, fed up Montanans pulled out their Constitution and began the process. 

THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT......While you may not agree with the goals or the financial backing, you can't argue with the numbers.  The Occupy movement mobilized people across the world to stand up to the PTB through protests and civil disobedience.  Today the Occupy movement begins their protest against NDAA, and on January 17th begins to Occupy Congress - does anyone else suspect that this might be the first public example of NDAA in action?

ALTERNATIVE MEDIA FIGHTS RON PAUL MEDIA BLACKOUT........When it became glaringly obvious that the mainstream media was doing all it could to ignore Ron Paul as a viable candidate, alternative journalists came out in droves.  He has had more coverage on blogs, Facebook and other social networking sites, and Youtube than any other candidate.  CNN was outed for editing an interview with Dr. Paul in an unflattering way.  FOX and CBS were both blasted online for virtually shunning Dr. Paul during the Republican debates, as it came to light that he received only 89 SECONDS of airtime in a November debate.

Oathkeepers Say No Many peace officers and members of Oathkeepers have signed letters of intent not to carry out orders that are in defiance of the vows they took to "protect and serve", stating that the NDAA is in direct violation of that oath.

A Declaration of the People .....All over the internet patriot bloggers and organizations are posting this declaration that they refuse to accept the unconstitutional act known as the NDAA, and that they will not aggress, but will defend their rights.

Small revolutions are breaking out all over the country as people become more and more outraged at the purposeful erosion of the Constitution by those in power. Find one you can stand behind and take part!  Start your own revolution! 

Be loud and be heard....don't let your freedoms and rights be taken away without a fight!

The Apathy Pandemic

Have you ever experienced the white-hot fury of watching people refuse to help themselves?

While my post regarding the Anti-SOPA email campaign got some great responses, my idealistic little bubble got popped by many of the other responses and emails that I received.

"I can't write my Rep - I'm on the ignore list."
"That's just a waste of time....it's only the aides that ever read those letters anyway."
"Nothing we do will make a difference."
"Daisy, you just don't understand how the government works."
"I've already written to tell them I will not vote for them again."
"You'll never change the way things are."

There is a real pandemic that has spread across America and that pandemic is APATHY.

An alarming number of people are willing to simply watch the destruction of freedom and shake their heads sadly, saying, "Yep, I knew this would happen."

We are watching our freedoms being taken away and doing absolutely nothing to stop it.  How much time out of your life does it really take to send an email?  To cast a vote? To write a letter to the editor?  To forward an interesting link to a friend?  To speak out against what you see? 

And if one of the things you do solves nothing, what have you lost?  At least you still have your self-respect.  At least you didn't accept what was handed to you by the Elite.

We do not lose until we stop fighting.  By doing nothing, you cede victory.

Most people, it appears, are too lazy to even wave a white flag of surrender.  They sit there, remote in one hand, bag of Doritos in the other hand, and smirk at the small percentage who are trying to make a change in the world.  If the people fighting for change fail, the apathetic ones are smugly justified in their apathy.

The paralysis of America will be her downfall.

Do one small thing every day.  Millions of drops of water are required to erode a rock.  One drop of water alone does nothing. 

Persist and persevere.

I'm more enraged by the people that will do nothing to fight for their freedoms than I am by the people who are trying to take those freedoms away.

If you are a reader who refuses to vote, refuses to speak out, refuses to make your voice heard, perhaps it's time to unsubscribe from this blog and check out something else, because I have no time for people like you.  I'll still fight for you in all the ways that I am able, but I won't waste my time trying to convince you to get your ass off the sofa.  Fighting your apathy takes up my valuable energy that can be directed towards productive things. 

Do one thing today to make your voice heard.  And if no one listens, that's okay, because you can do something tomorrow too.


Or continue to do nothing until the cell door slams shut.

Anti-SOPA Email Campaign

Please feel free to use the following letter in part or in full to contact your local Senators and Representatives to make your feelings known regarding the SOPA bill that is currently on the table in Congress. A link to the email contact information for every member of congress follows.

Let's make some noise about this!  Let's use the power of alternative media before they take it away from us!

The Honorable (full name)
United States (Senate or House of Representatives)
Washington DC

Dear (proper name, i.e., Senator Smith)

My name is XXXXXX and I am a member of your constituency.  I am a registered voter and am active at every election.  It is my understanding that your purpose in Washington is to represent the wishes of those who elect you.

First, I'd like to tell you how disappointed I am in the passing of the NDAA.  I have a thorough understanding of the legislation and I feel as though this is a black mark against the Constitution.  The reason I am writing you today is to tell you my thoughts on Bill H.R. 3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act.  After contemplation of this document, I feel that it is misnamed as a way to manipulate the people into believing that it is for our own good.  This bill is clearly an attack on the First Amendment and intended to police the internet.  This bill is designed specifically to legalize government censorship.

I urge you to vote AGAINST the passing of the SOPA bill.  Please be assured that I will be checking the roll call on this vote and plan to be very vocal in my support of those who vote against it, or, alternatively, in my criticism of those who vote for it.

I sincerely thank you for taking the time to read this letter.  I hope that I can count on you to protect my rights under the Constitution, and that I can continue to support you as a voter from your electorate.




~   Use your first and last name
~  Don't use profanity or be threatening
~  Be polite

To find the email addresses of your members, check this directory.

Please take a few minutes to send your emails today, and share this post with friends and family.  Let's light up the internet and demand our rights today!

Our voices count!  Let's keep the rights that make America great!

The Internet: The Last Bastion of Free Speech

In the fight for free speech, the internet is the last holdout.  It is the only place that your opinion can be your opinion and can be stated as loudly as you want without fear of repercussions.

But not for long if the US Congress has it's way.....

Much like the treasonous, unconstitutional NDAA, Congress wants to pass another bill to undermine personal freedom and, of course, yet another amendment.  This time they are taking a crack at the 1st amendment with H.R. 3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA.

By quick and vague definition it makes a lot of sense.  Sheesh, criminals are making a killing stealing music and movie off the internet, when good and decent folks pay for all that!  By golly, it's gotta stop!

My favorite presidential candidate, Senator Ron Paul, disagrees.  See this article to hear more from Dr. Paul on the subject.

But wait....on closer inspection, the legalese in the bill has the potential to eviscerate free speech....and like NDAA, without proof...only with suspicion of "wrong-doing".  It's all about copyright infringement.  If you tick off the powers that be, and you've quoted someone, somewhere, saying something, you may have infringed on their copyright.  As a defendant, you are not even present at the legal proceeding allowing "them" to shut you down until you prove yourself innocent.

How do they shut you down?  Search engines are required to remove you from their listings.  Internet Service Providers can be ordered to block access to your site.  Advertising networks and payment providers can also be forced to cease doing business with you.  This continues until you are proven INNOCENT.  Wait - I thought it was innocent until proven guilty....oh....that was "before" the NDAA.

Not only can SOPA nail you with a felony for "infringing" on a copyright (by doing something as small as playing a clip of a hit song during a photo montage ) - it can get you for "facilitating" infringement, which could be something as small as a hyperlink on your blog.  SOPA also targets address-spoofers and proxies that people around the world use to protect their anonymity.

What can you, as an everyday Jill or Jack, do about this?  How can you see to it that this bill doesn't get out of the House of Representatives?

MAKE SOME NOISE!!!  Take the gloves off.  Share this post and others like it with everyone you know.  Send it to your Representatives and Senators.  Call those same members of congress and let them know that you will be watching their voting records.  Write letters to the editor of your local papers.  USE YOUR VOICES.

Feel free to share all or part of anything you read on my blog to help get the word out!

Obama's New Year's Resolution? Martial Law

I hope the good people of the United States had a great celebration last night with parties, fireworks and noisemakers.  You may need to pour yourself another drink after you read this.

While everyone was celebrating, President Barack Obama made it official: 

The United States is now under martial law.

The National Defense Authorization Act allows the military to police the United States, it names the United States a war zone and it allows indefinite detention of the citizens without a trial.

2012 could bring a repeat of McCartheyesque witch hunts, with neighbours turning on neighbours.

With the (un)PATRIOT Act, Bush effectively repealed the 4th Amendment, which guarded against unreasonable search and siezure.

With the NDAA, Obama has iced the cake by ridding us of the pesky 5th and 6th amendments, with silly little rights like due process, involvement of the government in legal proceedings and a speedy trial by jury.

Who needs that stuff?  Not Americans, according to the government.

The US is now a police state.  Thugs in jackboots are REAL.

You can thank your members of Congress and your President for relieving you of these rights for "your own protection."  Check HERE to see how your local reps voted. 

What can we do?  The bell has rung.  The only way to unring it is to use the Constitution for what it was designed for and unseat this government.

The members of congress that voted for this abomination of the Constitution should each and every one be recalled.  The state of Montana announced that for a Christmas gift, they were doing just that and issued notice of recall  to their senators.  Hopefully other states will follow close behind. 

The Oathkeepers are right there with Montana, launching their own campaign to recall members of congress who voted for the act.

As for the estimable President Obama, if ever there was a reason for impeachment, his signature on the dotted line is no less than an act of treason against the country he represents.  He has absolutely no place in the Oval Office and the people need to let him know it.  This is a criminal act against the United States of America and it places the American people one huge rung further down the ladder of subjugation.


My New Year's resolution is this:  to tell everyone who will read it......

President Obama needs to either step down or be removed from office.  NDAA is a treasonous document.

Share this.....resolve to help right this wrong or the country you live in will not be the one you were raised in.
